Does this mean you'll be running for the school board in August? Oh wait, that would require that you get out from behind your computer and give up your anonymous rants. People who bitch the loudest are usually the ones who contribute the least.
No, I will not be running for school board. The only way I would run would be if all the board were fired and the whole system was started with decent people who have brains that think for themselves and are not told what to do by one board member. But alas, this is Lewisburg and it will continue to be run this way until the end of time and people like the new "Boss Hogg" will continue to run over people and do whatever it takes to retain her power and get her way. As for contributing, I contribute plenty. I would imagine I pay more taxes than you could even imagine here and you really don't fool anyone trying to defend this person. Everyone in this county knows her all too well and time will show the ones who do not know exactly what caliber person she is. I believe this is already apparent with the firings that are taking place. They were not necessary, these people could have been moved to other positions and I know one very well that she commented was " dumber than a rock" to me and this simply is not true. Revenge is a terrible thing and only spreads evil. There are fires in hell just waiting for people like this.

All 3 did their jobs quite well. You didn't hear of the auditors finding MAJOR mistakes when Wiles was over accounting.

Correcting an injustice is not revenge. Revenge is what motivated the last remnants of the last regime.

I agree with you. My son just registered for high school, and I was impressed at the variety of courses that are offered - not just academically, but technological courses as well.

Iam a teacher and just like "Ratio" a vast majority of students that have been home schooled stick out like a sore thumb. Most are socially inept and have a very hard time in making and keeping friends in the public school sector. Sure, there are exceptions but most are totally inept socially.
As far as Marshall County being behind have you ever been to a high school in Marshall County and seen some of the higher level math and science classes that these students are taking. They are very advanced and if a student is truly concerned about his future the Marshall County School system will meet his needs but if you are only trying to just "get by" then you will only get what your deserve and work for here in Marshall County. We have great teachers here in this county if you would just go and see what they actually teach in the higher level courses.

Just went back and read the posts. Seems that a lot of inside information from the first three pages are now coming true.

What difference will it make???? It will be a long time local. I don't think anybody here has the ability to think for themselves and just follows whoever proclaimed themselves leader.(Cooperate and graduate). If one of them would somehow manage to stumble across an original idea, it would be shot down like a rock because "that ain't what we do around here, ya hear?"

Wonder why or has the local paper told all the County Commission seats that will be open so people can think about running for those?

the more people who run for public office the more the local paper would make!

Read the local paper about leaky roofs would all some have to do clean out the drain pipes and too stop some of the leaks?

Yet does the first thing some wants to do is spend more Taxpayer's Money?

Has the school supertendent forgot about the money said found at the Court house ina so called maintance fund?

When Schools are not in session use for volunteer fire fighter training those fire hoses to flush off All County Building roofs, drain pipes and sewer lines as to keep thoso all open and maintain properly!
Even flush the County Building hotwater heaters so not to get build up there!

Check all County Buildings after every strom where hail damage could occur and let County insurance Company pay instead of Taxpayer's paying for both!

Require all County Commission members walk those roofs at least once a year with who ever does the county roofs and discuss the progress and maintance!

mrs.kennedy you will not be reelected thanks for your time
Post # 32.

You are absolutely right about Barbara Kennedy. She and her husband have always been supporters of J.D. Pierce. She did not win election to the school board this time just finishing out the term when Mr. Tiegens resigned from the board. Most all of the teachers here in Marshall County do not like her because she has tried to change the calander and is not considered teacher friendly. She does take the Republican stand on education. I do not think she could ever be elected to the school board again in particular dealing with her friendship with J.D.P. and some of her views dealing with our school system. I guess only time will tell. One thing she does have in the favor is money and if money can buy a position then maybe she will be re-elected next time but will not get my vote regardless of who runs against her. Donnie and Kristen, your time for re-election is coming also.
no kennedy

I live in her district and all my friends and kin folks will be voting for whoever runs against Kennedy for the school board. She is not teacher or student friendly, wants everything her way, JDP's best friend. One of the reasons why they originally moved out near Oak Grove to be next to their friend until he was forced out as Director.
