The New Superintendent Of Highland School District needs to settle down. He is trying to change everything in the school. Last week he told the student body that we couldn't fly our school flag at the games. Just because our school flag is the confederate flag doesn't mean that we shouldn't be able to fly it.. What do you think of this guy? He also says that he will present to the school board to change the mascot and school colors if anyone makes a big deal about the rebel flag.. This guy doesn't know our Rebel Pride and Tradition.. He needs to go back to where he came from.. If you feel that the Highland Rebels should stay the Highland Rebels, then go to the school board meeting Tuesday night at 7:00 PM at the Central Office. Help us out to stay the same!
Change is good

He is doing a great job. Even Ole Miss stopped using the confederate flag several years ago. It's about time alot of things changed at the school. It is time for HHS to move into the 21st century. My hats off to the new superintendent and to the school board for hiring him....keep up the good work.

I think some need to do there home work about the so called ''Rebel Flag'' thing.
The rebel flag is not the confederate flag at all, it's the confederate battle flag, that was flown before and during battle.
It has nothing to do with race or hate, nothing, it was just a flag to be showed for battle.
The northern news media has always printed the flag was about hate and race, that is not so.
This is America, the Muslim are allowed to build a mosque and fly there flag, and teach hate, Obama gave his approval.
And a few people here are upset about a battle flag.... I think instead of being upset about the flag, get upset with Obama for allowing this to happen I think the only people here that are making a big deal with this maybe are the people from the north coming to the south and wanting to change things to there liking.
I live in Cherokee Village, and about 80 percent of the people or more are people from up north, and they are always trying to change the way we live here, hell if they are unhappy then why not go back north.
There is nothing wrong with the way things are done here, that's why the northern folks moved here, because of our way of life.
Leave us alone we don't want your help, and by the way, I'm gonna buy me a rebel '' battle flag'' and fly it in my front yard for all the 20th century northern folks to see...yall drive by and see it, I'm very proud of it.

KAIT was at Liberty Bank today at 10:30 about removing the Rebel flag at the school. Watch the news tonight?
Unbelievable

My gosh...some of you people overreact to the some of the most ridiculous rumors. Why don't you take the time to read the statement from Mr. Floyd on KAIT8? The new superintendent has my support.

The stuff at the school is completely ridiculous. Mr Floyd never said anything about removing the flag or changing the mascot at highland high school. A rumor Was started about this because the assistant principle at the high school asked the students to be more respectful about how they displayed the rebel flag at the game, nothing dealing with the change of the mascot. I think Mr Floyd is doing a fine job as the new superintendent, he is trying to improve the school by bring in new technology for the students and getting the students more involed with all aspects of the school and making the place better. Mr Floyd needs to keep up the good work because he is doing a fine job to make the highland school system better.

The confederate flag has a lot to do with race, considering that most of the Confederate states pointed to it specifically as a reason for seceding. It's resurgence in the 1950s ad 1960s was primarily linked to the civil rights battles as a symbol of white supremacy. Knowing all this, waving it around is definitely a sign of hate.

Dude, I've live up north. The flag thing is never mentioned, let alone paranoid Southerners that are afraid some secret cabal called "liberals" is trying to wipe them out.

How on earth does a house of worship compare to a cartoon character that some kids point to on a field?

What is it that Obama "allowed" to happen? There were northerners and muslims here decades before he was even born.

Also, where's these army of northerners demanding change? I must some miss them when I drive by the school or courthouse.

Cherokee Village hasn't done anything significantly different than the other towns around it. All towns have rules and policies, if people don't like it, they can move out to the county.

[quote]There is nothing wrong with the way things are done here, that's why the northern folks moved here, because of our way of life.[/quote]

If there's nothing wrong with things, then why do people have to move away to find a job? Sharp and Fulton Counties match the delta counties as far as incomes go.

Folks, pay no attention to this poster that goes by the name Gary 7. He is just a Rebel flag waving fruit cake that still thinks fingering your sister, hanging coloreds and eating possum meat is a Southern tradition!
you are right
