Could you please explain the cover ups? I'm not trying to question your honesty, but facts usually help me understand things better. I hope any possible unethical behavior from county officials would get addressed. If I were to tell somebody on the street bout Washington county cover ups they ask me for specifics.

Accusations of affairs covered up. One being a coach at Boone with a student. Administration at Boone say they didn't know about it but all of the students did! Teacher being fired only to be hired back when she got a lawyer. Parents saying CO knew of abusive special ed teachers for years and remained in the system. Ones over elementary only hiring younger Teachers. Giving poor evaluations to wonderful, honest careing teachers that have always had great scores. Hiring an athletic director who was supposed to have a degree and still does not and is making as much as those in the system who do have a degree for his job. Same AD openly had affair with a Teacher in the system.Supporting big ball tournaments but public never heard what has been made off of them, if any or where the money has gone. The list goes on and on and on.Now there is supposed to be a big investigation going on for these things. That must be someone CO supposedly hired because nothing has ever came out about it. It's sad all of these lies and these people at CO are supposed to be doing their job for the students of Washington County. Sure does not appear that way

My child is in the WC school system & we had trouble with a teacher putting his hands on my son. my son was in 6th grade before summer break & has a horrible time with this teacher, which many students in the past have had as well. I went t o Dykes office with my son to tell him what was going on after I spoke with the principle & gathered my info from the kids in my sons class that actually reported the abuse to me because my son was too afraid to tell anyone. Dykes talked to & treated us like we were beneath him & everything my son & these other kids were saying was nothing but lies. If only he knew what I went through just to get my son to speak up against this teacher & then just to call my son a liar. Dykes said to get people to call or email him with complaints about this teacher doing things to their kids & report the things they have seen & heard.Because the incident with my son & this teacher was not an isolated incident, hundreds of calls & email's went through the central office, I know this to be true because I know someone who works there. Nothing was done to the teacher he still has his job & Dykes covered it up as well. I still have a year to file another complaint, my lawyer said, so after hearing everything that has been going on I may just do that. Dykes & the rest of the school board needs to go! It is time for a change, past time. I didnt know about the meeting til it was over or I would have been there. Im looking up the JC press article on facebook to learn about the other incidents, I didnt realize so much has happened. It is time for a change!!! I so support all the parents on here trying to fix this for their children, I hope justice will be served as well... good luck to all
Boone Concessions Fishy

<quoted text>The Crockett AD and parents oversee concessions so all the money benefits athletic students. It's always been volunteer position until Good took over.
The Boone Boosters always ran the concessions for the school, and money was made which went back to the student body. Clodhopper, if you weren't so sad, you'd be funny. Why in the heck do you think Masters should make money off of the concessions. This is a volunteer only, not a job. Money is to go to benefit the students, not Mike Masters. Good reason not to vote for him for school board. Yeah, is it written somewhere in the WCDE policies that one man and his wife can run the concessions and take a portion of the proceeds for themselves? This is just another thing that Danny Good took upon himself to do. And, none else is allowed to help! Guess Danny is afraid that he and Masters might be found out as to where the money is going. Talk about dishonesty. I hope Good is being investigated,too, for all he has done. Boone parents have worked their butts off for years in concessions, and they never got a dime. Now, all of a sudden Danny's buddy whom he wants on the school board is PROFITING from concessions and taking money that belongs to the students. Now, you supporter who are for Masters, Mabe and Good, and I'll just add worthless Roger Jackson, one other pawn for Dykes-tell me how this is right!! Masters has no right whatsoever to make one dime off of the concession, and probably splitting it with Good. Why has the Boosters worked for years in concessions, and didn't get paid?? Justify this!!!

The TBI is investigating CO and things at Boone. I don't think CO hired TBI. Their dirt is about to be uncovered. Be patient. The TBI doesn't rush things!

School Supervisors try to make anyone and everyone look bad who question them. Over the years they try to shred the reputation of concerned parents or teachers who have valid claim. The people of Washington County need to stand up. Recently the school board came close to allowing Dykes to ruin the career of a decent human being the JES librarian and allow him to protect the no class foul mouthed counselor who showed up at PTO meeting "Otis" styled. Many parents will testify to this but for whatever reason the school board and director have done nothing to question the counselor with DUI convictions. All public record.

LMAO Otis I loved him and the Darlings. Earnest T was my favorite. Barney Investigation Style at the CO. Just all one sided. Cmon the truth is long been buried in a deep hole at the CO.Wiki Leaks has been digging it up. Must want the directors job. Everyone would give their front teeth to have that job.

Ron Dykes I'm sure half of his days are answering questions and lying. As well as taking calls in regards to other children along with safety of children. Between the media... angry concerned parents.... state officials.... Attorneys calls, other departments. Possible law enforcement, and not to forget the emails and u.s. mail. Ron Dykes is way over his head, he won't last long in that position as long as the pressure increases. The parents and community won't stop this time... The train has picked up too much speed! Results in numbers. Stand by the children and their parents, and any admin and the AI. They need you! YOU NEED THEM!

Illogic is on the WCDE side! Illogic isn't for the children! Be careful parents!
Looks like youre awful quick to judge someone. It seems to me that you don't want people to hear any facts, just to listen to what you believe. You must lead a sad life just sitting around trying to dream up stuff to bring down people, and I think theres a good chance your 1st name starts with an T. It wont be long til August and then you can tuck your tail and stop your whining.

Thanks to those who have tried to explain the charges, to hell with the rest of you who just want to bitch. A serious situation deserves facts, not venomous unfounded accusations. I'm still awaiting more details and proof. Obviously there is a bad situation here, and the more facts available will help rectify it. I've known the school system to be very close knit and perhaps it is unraveling. More facts? Thanks.

teddy is to my understanding the counselor at JES AND former student of his in the 1980's NICKNAME she refers to him. Ron Dykes is teddy bear. How could so many evil forces be under one roof? AND these are the people that are suppose to educate and protect our children - all the school board members are just as guilty, and weak they are Ron dykes puppets!! GO AWAY dykes-kyte-belcher- Adams and so many more . That's just the tip. If the iceberg !!!!!

As a matter of fact..... The longer he stays in his current position more will leave
I believe Ron dykes's time has come as well as many other of CO's rats. Seems like oil' Ronny May have just met his match- I bet Jared is hiding out with his hair dresser and has his hair gel close to his heart. Maybe the behavioral teacher at BES mike can make u feel better Jared. I saw u hiding behind Susan belcher's skirt the other day. Come out- come out- the truth is coming for you. Many r watching so b sure not to lie- somebody is listening to all u say and do- so don't lie! Doesn't matter where "gel boy" goes cause the truth police will follow u where ever u go and make sure you are held accountable --- the truth has only now begun to come out. You let special ed children down and you let them stay in a class with a man who u knew was abusive. I would hate to be any of you right now. All of CO that covered for Larry manis- and continued to let him hurt innocent children... Justice is knockin on the doors at CO- so quit hiding people- come out and take your medicine!!

I was informed that CO installed a crap load of cameras and you have to badge in now.... why be scared? Dykes is a pu$$y and Everyone is paranoid. What a shame. Also heard a cop patrols the parking lot and building every 2 hours. They are scared and they should be. I'm sure the press is really trying to get in... i also bet the phone calls don't stop... what Frickin losers!
too bad they didn't protect the special ed. Kids and go to these measures to protect them. These people at CO are unreal. They must b really scared to spend the money to install all these "safety measures"- so sad they didn't offer those children protection against not just Larry manis- but Susan belcher,Jared Adams and all the other evil adults and employees at JMS. Soooo many knew what was happening and they chose to turn their heads-Crowe - McKee , Brooke Britton Addison the counselor - jerry deerestone-the I.A. That "filled" in and was in classroom often and knew what was going on.THIS And so many other truths are out now and they r not going away. The harder you try and hide- the harder we r going to pull and push.WE R NOT GOING AWAY until ALL r held accountable.

I have attended the last 3 school board meetings and also have followed wcyb and Nate morbito media coverage of this teacher who obviously from FACTS reported by these media outlets and I.A.- parents and so on. What I HAVENT HEARD is a FOLLOWUP on this?? WHY has no one been charged??? WHY has this abusive man been allowed to collect his retirement and go on to live the high life??? WHY has wcsd or TONY CLARK not brought administrators that covered up the reports and continued to allow the abuse to continue not been held accountable ?? Why hasn't mr. manis not been charged? Why has Jared Adams, Susan belcher, and Ron dykes been charged or held accountable ?? If I have missed something please fill me in! Think about who you vote for Thursday - seems that tony CLARK and sheriff graybeal DONT think these children and families deserve justice. What does this say about our community and it's leaders?? I'm ashamed !!!

Would you expect anything different from these bunch of no-good farces in ties?? You really think Tony CLARK or the sheriff of this Podunk place is going to step out of their comfort zones( especially at election time) to help abused children or help bring the wcde administrators who covered to justice?? Why don't people hold a rally at central office for parents and victims- I bet that would fill up the parking lot!! WCDE and WCSD are a joke!! Apparently our kids are a joke to many!!

<quoted text> I hope you are right! What if this freak goes somewhere else and victimizes more children. All of CO and JMS staff knew- EVEN the nurse!! These people need to be held accountable-starting with nurse Donna and all the way up- McKee - Brooke britton- and terry Crowe- and let's not forget Jared Adams and Susan belcher! These people need to be held accountable* maybe Nate morbito should do a follow up story to show the public that WCDE DOES NOT value or protect children! Why is his mistress not been dealt with? What about pervert coach at Daniel Boone ? Coach Arnold hasn't been held accountable- what about good ol' Danny good??? When are enough angry parents and citizens going to stand up to this?? If not then people on the other side of the county need to do what the "angry father" did and IS STILL fighting for not only his child BUT every child in this system- so far he is the only one to address school board and alerted media because NOBODY at WCSD or WCDE did anything to protect these kids- and now worse than that- they are liars and evil. Ron dykes is sick! Yes- he also abused his power many years ago when he molested his student( yes- that's what he is classified as) when you take sexual advantage of a young female student! WHY is this evil pedofile still working for this system?? Why does it seem all involved are lying to protect each other. Larry Manis will only be the FIRST arrest! Justice is NOT always swift- but by gosh it's knockin on their doors - I bet Brandon McKee is hiding in Crowes office and Jared is under Susan belcher's skirt hiding-come out - come out- wherever you are! Justice will be served- ALOT if people in this community are watching and waiting.
RON DYKES is Dayan' spawn. It's going to take an exorcism to get him out!!
