What the heck does the 'area' have to do with anything? You are a myopic narrow minded follower. You are clueless about his leadership at the middle school. Sure he has some strong supporters. You should know cause we can tell that's who you've been talking to. It's gone downhill drastically. There's a lack of leadership!!
Saw DA Bowels going into north mid this morn. Was to console Sparks and assure him he'd get the other position/--betcha!!

The area has a lot to do with it Okthen. The hiring administrators and board in charge and good intentions of the body has been crowing qualified people from Sparks area out of leadership positions for decades. Name one former superintendent from the area. They all pick their replacements. I am thrilled for the elected superintendent and not myopic/nearsighted at all. Sparks is a good leader and character shows everything including in the way you write. The leadership is there and it's known well beyond that particular school. He is being noticed for his accomplishments on many levels. Good luck to you and your big agenda Okthen.

Paying for bd member to go to conference in California.
Paying over a million $,s for Bremen Elem ballparks.
Buying extra property at Bremen Elem.
Pay for all the extra board meetings.
And yes skippy an extra asst supt.
Just a sample of how money has been wasted. How many of the list above is ABOUT OUR KIDS? If you don't believe me with this list than check the board minutes that are posted on the district website. That's where I found it.
Skippy, a poor school board is the understatement of the year.
So...according to these figures, Fentress is making $83,000+ out of Muhlenberg County taxes? In addition, Todd is being bought out for 6 months of pay plus over a year's salary in sick days...I don't know what his salary is, but that is probably well over $100,000. And they are wanting to cut pay for some retired teachers??????? Where is the outrage from the county?????

They should cut pay for retired teachers; our scores still suck when compared to the rest of the state's; so the money going to pay for these RETIRED teachers; has been wasted. Why is the school system full of old retired has-been teachers? I bet Robert Reynolds and his wife receive pension checks of $4,000-$6,000 a month and he has been the assistant superintendent for years....drawing a paycheck of how much? Muhlenberg County schools are full of teachers who NEED to retire or have retired and won't leave. We need NEW teachers who want to work and still have some enthusiasm for teaching.

I don't think there are that many retired teachers working and those that are work for less than full pay. I don't see a long line of applicants at the board when jobs are announced. I don't think they have a large pool to pick from. Outside people don't want to come here to work very often.

It sounds like they take experienced teachers for a fraction of what they make if they were not retired, and have them working with slow learners. Makes sense to me. If I read the paper correctly the issue is this board is spending all this money on useless things and now targets teachers to cut pay and all of this after school had started. Can't disagree with ya on Reynolds. He's been around so long he probably started working in one room school houses.

You are very correct. I could not have said it any better myself. Get new teachers who need jobs to do what these retired ones dont want to do anyway.

LOL. Ole Wobert will suck up to anyone in charge. He did Todd until he announced his retirement then turned his loyality to McCarty. Certainly wasnt for Sparks or Davis. He's only for himself and has to have his power ego stroked. McCarty will run him off soon but ole Wobert probably don't realize it. They used him to promote McCarty and stab Davis and Sparks. They no longer have any use for him. IMO

I really feel it is time for the people of this county to stop the bashing. Sure, everyone has a right to his or her opinion, but many such as Bizzy Bee are simply making cruel remarks with no justification. All I can say is Bizzy is a very insecure person and makes ridiculous remarks to soothe a fragile ego. Until the people of this county refrain from making such outrageous statements and behave like civilized people, no sane person or business from outside the county will attempt to come here. Most of all, if the adults don't start behaving with some decorum, our children will become pessimistic and unproductive citizens. Is that what you want Bizzy Bee? Perhaps you and all the other disgruntled folks should find a new place to live and create the utopian society Bizzy thinks is possible.

You are entitled to your opinion and I am entitled to mine. But the fact is I don't intend on being cruel but only speaking the truth. People in this county know what is going on but few are willing to stand up and say it. My apologies if I hurt someone's feeling but there are more and more people who see things very similar to the way I do.

I agree. Leadership has really declined since this new board took over and this substitute superintendent came in. We were discussing this morning at the coffee shop the reason why this Fentress guy is here till November if we now have a superintendent named. Isn't he paid BIG bucks, like $500 a day plus expenses?

CB also said that this board created not only a third assistant superintendent position but also a new secretary for that person at the board. Any truth to that? Doesn't make any sense cutting teacher pay due to a tight budget and creating all these additional jobs. So now we're paying three superintendents, Todd, Fentress, and McCarty? When is this board going to spend money on our children rather than adults? Isn't school about the kids? This craziness never ends.

Yeah he laughed all the way to the bank thanks to this board. That was really stupid on the board's behalf. Paying three supts at once is craziness.

LOL. Todd needs to take up poker. He sure played those rookie board members and even ole Don fell victim. But wait, the board was playing with our taxpayer money so they didn't give a dam* how much they spent. But in all honesty, more has been done for our kids in the last 10 years then any time I can remember. We have some very nice schools under Todd's reign. Good luck McCarty.
