She'll be fine, I'm sure they have nepotism and old men who use to be principals and now try and control everything in Gainesboro too.

She's only an interim, and being from Jackson County she can handle the job. She's also been in situations like this before.

amen!!!!!!!!! If one does the right thing all the time, then there is no need to worry. The truth and doing right always stands strong. Ofcourse the overton county school system is not used to doing that.

I saw they were questioning Mr. Sell about records on diesel, gas, and maintenance stuff. Evidently he is not doing his job either. It sounds like a lot of them needs to start trying to do the right thing. I guess it is hard when you have been used to spending and not worrying about anyone checking what is bought, used, stolen, or sold. Maybe the citizens will finally start taking notice. I know I will pay more attention from now on. Thanks to livestream that we can do that much easier now.

if yall are so worried about doing the right thing why are yall spreading false rumors?? you have no way of knowing what has been bought, used , stolen or sold...to me people need to mind they're own business and worry about their self instead of what everybody else is doing. People are too nosey these days.

you are correct. there's no way to tell. there are few accounting procedures and and the ones in effect are by-past. Has any on seen an audit report on the school system in years?

I think it is my business. I pay plenty of taxes and that is where their money comes from. And NO, I don't know all of what has been bought, used, stolen or sold, but I know enough to know a lot of our tax money is being used for things other than school needs. Can I prove it? Yes! I don't accuse anyone of anything unless I know for sure.

There is one thing for sure, the old DOS got his way for a while. But what goes around comes around. Now, he is gone and here we go again. Hope they find one that will do the right thing and not stand for the corruption. We don't need any more corruption.

They were going to use tax dollars to move a new director of schools here, calling it a "moving expense". Porter was already making 95,000 at his other job. Who makes 95,000 and needs money to move here for a job he put in for. They were willing to put him in a motel and everything. That kind of use for tax dollars p***** me off. I pay taxes in this county and don't want them used for something like that for someone who makes more than me and my spouse combined.

Yes, Mr. Sell does not have records of where the gas and diesel and oil and etc. are being used. He said he has been taking a class on how to keep up with that stuff. How hard is it to keep records? Any body could keep a record of that stuff. Why does he have to take lessons on how to do that? That's just common sense. Are they trying to keep us from knowing who and for what it is used for? It sure sounds like it.
And I hear he is running for school director. Boy would that be a circus. We have some real winners in this school system. I think it is time for them to be held accountable.

There are local people qualified for the position. Why not hire one and be done with it? In my personal opinion a native Overton Countainian would be much more interested in the education of our children.
Whomever they finally pick will not suit the majority of the people anyway. I Wish they would let all the people decide, not just a few with personal petty CHILDISH grudges against certain individuals. No moving or rental expenses. imo.

So how did the last one they picked from Overton County work out for you? That`s the problem we have it`s the good ole boy way of doing things around here. Sometimes you have to go outside the county to find what you need.
