I heard it was going to be MINERS. Aint got nothing against that at all, some of my family work in the mines but thats a bit much. Dont make us Eastern Kentuckians look any smarter! People will sure call us hillbillies then.

I heard that as well. I understand what you're saying. I don't have anything against coal miners at all either and I agree, it's a bit much.

They put up a few possibilities and voted in the school. It is the Miners.
And it will be the new Dennis Wooton. Nothing more. Except I believe it will expand to include 8th grade now I believe.

Actually, A.B. Combs will have some of their students that will be redisticted and will be going there. The last that we were told was that anything from Crawford Mnt. on out to 80, going through Hiner out that way would be the East Perry district. They said that would also include Second Creek. They have projected that A.B. will loose about 100-150 students and some teachers since DCW did not have 7th and 8th grade teachers.

I'm just wondering, what makes you think that coalminers are dumb?

I went to college and I'm a coal miner, does that mean that I'm dumb? I guarantee the people that I work with are much smarter than you are, and there certainly not on topix complaining about a school mascot.

The mascot will be a coal miner..which there is nothing wrong with that considering we where one of the biggest coal preducing areas around. And yes the school is ONLY replacing DCW which will be expanded to 7th and 8th grade..however they did hire some teachers that got laid off at other schools because many of the students are being switched to East Perry but DCW students will be the first to be accepted and they will only take so many students after that..

I'd rather be called a farmer than a damn dumbass miner. What a sorry ass name. Mining is a dead profession.

Actually, the teachers that went to East Perry from AB are teachers that were NOT laid off. They asked to move or were moved by Central Office. 7 of AB's teachers went by choice or were moved due to East Perry needing more teachers. One teacher from AB that was pink slipped got placed there. There will be several students from AB there simply because they have to ride the bus due to new district lines.

there will be head start, preschool through 8th grade. the mascot is a miner that resembles yosemite sam & capn crunch (no kidding!)- colors black and red.(kinda stoopid, should be navy blue with fluorescent stripes) the name is East Perry Elementary. you can't make this hillbilly stuff up, the people who elect my board have to be alcoholics!

Now you're getting the picture. In 4 years we will all regret a FOUR year contract. I bet your job is not guaranteed week-to-week! Just think...the last superintendent they fired still draws more money than you for running education into the black damp!

do you actually believe we vote in the board members? especially given their record??? poor robin, can't even recognize the wolf...
