First Donald Smith embarrases Marion County by letting Epps keep his job with a slap on the wrist after a drunk driving arrest and a refusal to take a breathalyzer test. Now he has embarrased the citizens of Marion County again.

Tonight at the football game against Fairdale, Mr. Smith was so loud and unruly on the sideline that the refs had to stop the game and warn him to keep his mouth shut.

Then at the end of the game, the refs had to have their police escort tell Mr. Smith to back off.

How much longer do we have to put up with this guy.

I beseech the school board and the new members to review the need for this man to run our school system.

There has got to be a better more professional person out there somewhere that will allow the citizens of Marion County to be proud of our school system again.

Lord have mercy! The people of Marion County just complain and bitch about everything!!! Damn! Get a life. The past superintendants didn't even show their face to support the kids. You must be some miserable people! You all complain about everything he does....true colors are starting to show. It's obvious it's not about what he's doing..the problem you all have is the color of his skin. I'm white and I can pick up on it. Wow..so sad.

If you were there, you would have been embarrased too. This man, black or white, does not have the tools to lead.

I hope the new school board brings integrity back to the residents of Marion County and our schools.

THIS IS NOT ABOUT THE COLOR OF HIS SKIN> IT IS ABOUT THE CONTENT OF HIS CHARACTER!! HIS children are not enrolled in our school. I do not care how he acts at a ballgame he makes an a** out of every taxpayer in Lebanon as we pay for his gas to drive to a job won't even live in our town, pay taxes in our town,that is why the school board members got voted OUT . If he really thought Marion County was a great school then his kids would attend. He needs to be gone. I will not participate in ANY school fundraiser as long as the board sees fit to continue to WASTE OUR MONEY.That is my opinion. It is not a race issue he could be purple for all I care but as long as I pay his salary with my taxes,Then I am entitled to an opinion .I also hope the new school board return integrity back to M.C. they need to start there.

Wonder what type of Financial compensation Marion County recieved by Hiring Mr. Smith.

See article below:

Guess Marion County is the testing ground for the Commonwealth Department of Education.

I just don't understand why the previous school board allowed our children to be used in this manner?

i'm tired of it. he needs to go, the same way the people of marion co voted in the new school board members this superintendant needs to go. he refuses to move into the county. he refuses to deal with coaches that screw around with married women, coaches that get dui's. teachers that can't even handle bathroom issues.this is just stupid. we have failing schools and he accepts no responsibility. i don't care what color he is. he is a poor excuse of a leader, just like the football coach, the basketball coach and half the teachers.

I think that all of you need to chill out. This guy is out there supporting our athletes. As a former MC athlete I never once saw our old superintendent come out to a sporting event, let alone make his presence felt. As for the Epps issue ask yourself this. Has someone given you a 2nd chance? It wasn't a smart move on Epp's part, but as they say. Your actions after a mistake is what defines who you are. Give him a chance.

I would rather him not show up at all than to show up as he did the other night.

Like it or not, he accepted the position that he now holds. Thus he is held to a standard that is commiserant to the position. In other words, the man has to act like a professionsl even though he is not.

You guy's don't have a clue what you are talking about, this man was asked to pull his card out to prove that he is and shall be the superintendent of our school,he has a right to speak his peace,black or not he has right's.Leave him alone and let him do his job.You all have hated on Mr.Smith since the first day he was hired and it's a shame.I am a big fan of his and am very proud to stand behind what he does and says.I am a football parent and he has been there for my son and his team the whole season, and to me that means alot, so find something else to talk about and leave him be.
good for you

Glad for you, football mom, that he has been there supporting your kid. I haven't seen him yet at one of my kid's middle school band concerts. And at one board meeting where several middle school students were presenting things, singing, and dancing, he was texting on his phone, instead of paying attention to the students.

even if he has a card, does not give him the right to behave the way he did.
