If anything is to be done..we must stand up as parents, employees, and citizens. Its time to clean house ladies and gentlemen. Sadly, the examples these individuals are.setting for our children and.even for.our community have become a joke for most. Adultery, nepotism, employee harassment, MISAPPROPRIATION of funds, all for their own personal gain. Clarence Mabe may be a good man, but his time on the school board has passed many moons ago. It is my opinion that he enjoys the power and control that he seems to have over individuals. He has become the puppet master or so he thinks. If we do not stand up NOW, it will only become worse. It is my understanding that Bill Brinkley will not be running again..which is a shame because he is an honest man and doesn't cow to anyone. David Hammonds , enough can't be.said good about him... he will fight for what is right..regardless of who he upsets.. and he has common sense, a trait that is sorely missing from our schoolboard and commission. Chad Williams, Brian Irvin, I believe are as good as David... BUT WE MUST STAND UP AND BE COUNTED OTHERWISE WE.CAN'T COMPLAIN! COME ON PEOPLE...LETS START CAMPAIGNING!

Does the AD even have a degree, if not then how can he be over people that coach and teach, that do have degrees? And yes it is time to change our commissioners and vote for people that are not part of this gang from boone!
Hit the nail on the head... he has the job because of whp he knows (Clarence Mabe)..certainly not.what he knows.
They are all in bed.together...or at least with someone else's wife...

Concessions on basket ball and football bring a large sum but Mike Masters gets the bulk of profit and shells out to each team that had parents volunteering. Now this was done when his buddy the unqualified, lying Athletic Director got his job in an unethical manner. Boosters were busted and money taken over. This should be questioned and investigated by state or federal authorities. Mike and Danny really don't give a damn about the kids it's the money. You are known by the company you keep.

What will Masters get done? Take over Band boosters concessions like he and Danny Good did? Masters is part of Boones No Accountabilty problem. So please tell us what Masters will get done that doesn't pad his pocket?

School employees are not allowed to be on the school board. Don't you remember when Danny Good was a board member and a created athletic director job became available he wanted, so he had to resign on the school board. Trust me if they could have gotten around it they would have. Hoping teachers become politically active, is wishing they would get new people in their community, churches etc. to run for school board or commissioner. Many changes are needed in this school system and the same uninspired people produce the same disappointing results. Since you are not happy over teacher's salaries, you need to follow the money to the CO and what those overpaid a$$ sitters make! No wonder they work well into their seventies! Do your homework mo money, before you disrespect teachers and and other school employees working at the bottom of the totem pole!
Ditto... and by the way since teachers are being evaluated...who is evaluating the CO employees?

Hammond has mentioned academics! That's more than others running!
Exactly... he recognizes that the schools are in disrepair and the money needs to be put where it's best used...on the students... Washington County is one of the rop richest counties in the state of Tennessee, yet our county suffers from lack of funds? Can someone please explain that to me? On the subject of sports, its been proven that students who participate in sports do better all around... but that doesn't mean that we should spend all of money on sports...

<quoted text>Because of your post I started another thread with additional issues. We know those close to Danny Good knew what was going on. The coaches, assistant coaches, athletic trainer and it is said one of the Boone secretaries knew and would cover up. My question to these people(some attend church and profess to be Christians) and to the parents and taxpayers is this SHOULD WE NOT HAVE BETTER ROLE MODELS AROUND OUR STUDENTS?
What is the thread?

God help us all if he does. He only is in control of 4.3 square miles now as the Director of Jonesborough Public Safety and has three traffic cameras issuing tickets while trampling our rights against illegal search and seizure. Can you imagine the police state he would promote with 330 square miles to strategically place these invasive cameras. The logic behind this reasoning is inherently flawed. Pandora's box has been opened and we can't close it. When we allowed ourselves to be policed by non humans we have essentially given up. Technically speaking they could potentially in real time track our every movement in our vehicles 24 hours a day. How many infractions could a living breathing police officer issue if he followed you every minute of your life? This could be a new reality with technology. This is why I support Ed Graybeal, he has chose not to infringe on our 4th amendment rights.

Obviously you can not understand how the Red light cameras work. Only the board of mayor and alderman can approve or disapprove them! The police dept only enforces the civil ticket. You need to research before assuming that you know what you are talking about.
