Didn't Wolfe get fired by the school district this past spring?

Didnt realize Hughes still had a School Board. They barely have a School. At this point , I Do not think that Obama could help this school system.
Its sad, b/c Hughes use to be a good Small town , with Good Teachers and Students.

The school is smaller than before but once the corrupt plantation owners got off the board it is much better.. The school will actually benefit the kids instead of the plantation owners (farmers). It seems that the farmers have lost both the city and school and now they seem upset? You mean the city and town is all black so its not good anymore? I beg to differ.

Ms Combs is a dedicated city leader and citizen. Her work and interests are for the well being of our students, faculty and entire school system. She is genuine, not using the school board election as a means to win a personal vendetta.

Ms. Combs stated at a school board meeting in Feb. that she knew best because the kids looked like her.That is her words not mine. She was upset that alot of white parents was at the meeting. She is a total racist and a larry owens as? kisser. She can go to hell I rather have dovie instead. This is why she is not on the city council anymore. Total racist hell she does not have enough sense to sweep the school much less try to run somthing. Please vote for people not skin color.

Ole boy, you sound like your roots are with the plantation mentality... Ms Combs is a christian lady who cares about Hughes city and school. I have never heard Ms. Combs make any racist comments but I wasnt at the meeting you referred to above. I know she has several grandkids at school and they probably do look like her.

It is my understanding that Dovie Wolfe was fired by the district this past year. It is also my understanding that she took her kids out of the school and homeschooled them. She also missed more days of work at the school over the past years than any other employee. Rumor has it that she has told everybody in town she was filing a lawsuit against the district for her dismissal. Why would you vote for somebody who has a grudge against the district and how could she possibly help the district by being on the board? How can you justify having somebody on board who doesnt want their own kids to attend the school? There are some ethical issues about her promiscuous behavior in town as well.

I vote to re-elect Irene Combs.

Ok, it is my understanding that MS. Wolfe did not get fired she was part of a RIF or reduction in force. Get it straight if you are going to make comments. In addition, I was also at the meeting where Ms. Combs made her racial comments. She may be a Christian but her actions and comments on the school board are questionable. If she will make those kind of comments in a school board meeting then how can she be trusted to care for children of all races equally. If you are so concerned about lawsuit RUMORS maybe you should look at fact that the school district has just rehired an individual who sued the school in the past few years. Don't you see a problem here?

Wondering what the difference is between a RIF and getting fired? Ask the 'better' school board members...I'm curious as to what their indivual answers would be!
