I think something is fishy with Mike Masters running for school board-his kids are grown. He sells Blazers t shirts and is paid to handle school concessions along with paying his son and wife. Where does money go and who accounts for it. Mr Brinkley has stated Masters and his family will have to give that business up conflict of interest. He also stated board members have questioned money trail and accountability. Guess that is why Masters is running.

When a candidate runs for office do they not have to fill out financial papers to fill out. If so he would show taxable income. If he doesn't disclose the income if he runs would that not flag the IRS?if Masters runs he and his family should not be paid to do concessions. I question whether they should be now.

There have been improvements but if Masters is elected what Accountabilty that has been gained will be lost. He is a Danny Good chronie and that means lies and cover ups. Why would Masters run now that kids are gone. Makes you wonder.

So this is the one who is profiting off concessions, and a friend of the AD who doesn't want any accountability on athletic money. Well clearly I can see how he would be an asset to this school system. NOT! Stop drinking the Koolaid and get a clue!

I don't doubt Masters is a nice guy but that does not explain his close relationship with Good and the fact concessions is not accounted for. I suggest IRS do an audit.

I like it. I tired of people sucking off of the community teat. Not voting for Masters. Sick of money grubbers at Boone.

Laughable...You suggest the IRS do an audit. Like they give a crap about a candy man in North East Tennessee. The audit should be conducted on the Concession Stands themselves against stock and past purchases not the individual. Now IF that's what you meant then you are way, way off because that has nothing to do with the IRS.

The PTA or someone affiliated should request salary scales and expense report. As a "CONTRACTOR" for the school one would think this should be public knowledge.

Well sit back and wait for the IRS to call for or instigate an audit. You didn't read before you started typing. I stated "the PTA or someone should REQUEST" meaning ask for or initiate. Someone has to get the ball rolling on the funds received and paid out through the concessions if that is what the supposed problem is because that's where the trail would start. IF and I mean IF there is a discrepancy then you start looking for where it went or where it is going. Only then could someone narrow down who needs to be audited PERSONALLY.

The point I was making above that you obviously missed is in the world of the IRS this person is a small fish. Unless he starts a "TEA PARTY organization and applies for TAX FREE STATUS or donates a couple million to the Republicans the IRS isn't going to give a warm steaming crap about a warm steaming pile of crap in Washington County Tn that SOME people do like and don't want on their school board.

Again like someone posted on another thread "this seems more personal than it is true allegation". Personally I hope it works out for the kids best interest. I could care less what parents don't like what as long as the kids/students are getting through High School safe and sound and hopefully move on to college.

If you don't want him on the school board run against him. SHOW HIM!! Doubt seriously that has ever entered your mind. In the mean time I will watch the National News, Local News and newspaper for the big IRS Investigation.

The audit and accountability should be requested by director of schools or school board. Someone has dropped the ball and allowed the AD too much power and little or no supervision.

<quoted text>Maybe he can get more friendly faces at Boone front desk. There is one in particular who works front desk and game gates who treats students, parents, some teachers, and bus drivers like sh"t. If any of them were worth a flip they would not cover up or turn their backs on the trash going on with some people at Boone. I don't see how Christians could support or vote for certain people.
They are Christians in name alone. Most of the people employed by the school system go to church but that does not mean they are Christians. The majority do not act like Christians. To be fair there may be a few who behave in a Christ like manner. The general public is fooled by Ron Dykes. He makes his numerous television appearances and tries to talk a good line. Shame on all of them. And shame on the people who support such corrupt individuals. They support them because they usually get something out of the deal. Sick.

Masters has certainly taken more than he has given to the school. He is always selling t shirts too. He is running because his unethical gravy train is at risk. Can you imagine your board with him and Mabe. Look at all the affairs and bullying going on with Boone Athletics. Remember how many times people say lady at gate is a witch. Coaches carrying on with teens.

Danny Good is the culprit who got rid of the parents running the booster club, and got his good ole' buddy Mike Masters and wife to take it over. The money made from the concessions is not going to the benefit of the students, so where is it going, Danny? This man is so corrupt, with numerous affairs, making way took much money for someone with no degree, and I could mention some other things such as using Boone employees for his own personal gain.

I plan to vote for David Hammond and Todd Hull. Both of them want changes at Boone and they are ethical and honest. Masters and Utsman were handpicked by Danny Good to run for school board, so we know what that means! Get to know the candidates and how they stand on issues before you vote.

If your unhappy about things in the school system why vote for Hammond or anyone else who recently just voted to extend directors contract? The board only has one employee and that is the director. The board can not hire or fire anyone in the system but him. People need to understand the system before voting. It's easy for candidates to say something but when they vote at board meetings really tell where they are.

Masters and Utsman would vote exactly like Mabe and Good told them to. We don't need sheeple who will not stand up for ALL kids!! Vote Hammond and Hull to end the Mabe sports spending machine!
