It appears that Dr. Amon Couch might be our next superintendent. They have appointed him to be the interim. He might be the best choice. What Couch family is he from?
Who is it?

<quoted text>Ivan, are you crazy? The school board watches this site, really??? Be realistic, if you can. I'm sure one of the requirements set forth on the job description is to be on topic's or even liked by the fools it consumes! I can assure you, this site will play absolutely no role in the choosing of the new superintendent. Why should it? The majority of this county is uneducated, relay on others for support both for them and their children, I can tell you factually, that a Hugh number of parents for school aged children could careless about an education for their children. A lot of parents can't even tell you what grade their children are in or even what they are involved it! Much less help their children achieve goals or even help with homework. In these scenarios, usually the child is smarter than the parent. Meaning mom and or dad can't even read or write or both, much less help a child with their work. And knowing from experience, they have absolutely no desire to learn. They don't work, they have nothing but time on their hands, but still refuse any type of help! But let it be a check at the first of the month, than they are showing up in car loads! What kind of message is this sending to their children? I can tell you! It's one of, "It's okay to uneducated, not to have any goals in life, to depend on others for your lively hood. This is where you have the counties generation check drawers! They have followed in mommy and daddy's footsteps!
The Board of Education is going to watch and follow those that are qualified to provide the direction needed. Not those mentioned above or the many other trends on here that just show how uneducated, shameless, ignorant, just to name a few, people of this county can be. The only thing this site is notorious for is slander and gossip. It's a place where people can be 10 feet tall and bullet proof behind a computer screen.
As with any job involving dealing with the public, somebody will always have something negative to say. And than you have those that are upset over the choice for office. So no matter who occupies the position, someone will start one of these awful slandering trends filled with lies, hate, and deceit.
So in closing Ivan, this site is not watched, if anything those that occupy it are just simply made fun of!!!
Now if you want to know who the town slut is, or who's having another unwanted baby by someone else's husband or boyfriend, or where to get drugs, than my friend, you have reached your destination!!!

I would like to see a new Super that has experience as a District Superintendent, one that understands the nuances of the politics and educational policy. A Super who understands how to implement systematic change in our school system.

We don't need a same ole clique Super, we don't need a on the job training Super, we need a seasoned, experience educational leader to put academics and students first, and if that ruffles feathers of the status quo, then he or she must be on the right track.

In my opinion it should be a county wide vote for superintendant have it at the high school and there would be plenty of parking, it should not be just the board members voting for the super the people of Clay County should get to vote the super in. Because this job affects every person in the county somehow... about every person in the county has someone working or kin to someone or a child in the school system. I say a county wide vote. Put the candidates qualified on the ballot and let the voting begin. lol lol

I'm not sure, he graduated from CCHS and was in the Corbin System before be decided he needed to come back home and try to help fix his old system. I agree 100 right now he is by far and away the most qualified un-politically connected, regular, good guy, for the job. If he doesn't get the job it'll be because board member know they won't be able to get those little political maneuvers/favors out of him. You can bet your last dollar he'll be about and for our children without any form of agenda.

He don't live here in Clay County. He lives in Corbin and his children go to a corbin school.This is just a job until he can go back home to corbin.Our county has lost two teaching jobs to people from corbin since he has been here. If he gets the job our school system will lose more jobs. Might even call our school system Corbin 2 schools. I do not think he is the right person for the job.

It is 2013, there shouldn't be any gravel roads in the county unless it is in an isolated, non-traveled, and non-residential area.

As I recall, correct me if I am woring but didn't the JG administration borrowed 1 million dollars and implemented an 1% occupational tax that was suppose to address our infrastruture needs for road and bridge improvements, not counting other allocation from state/federal funds.

Where has all this money gone, where is the blacktop, why do we continue to have to drive on broken and delapidated roads, why do school children have to travel along broken shoulders and treacherously slick muddy roads early in the mornings.

I ask these questions only to bring up the point that we can do better, but each magistrate must stand up for their district, drive their districts, talk with their constituents, and identify priority projects and end the mud and gravel by 2020.

Voters, I ask you to hold them accountable at the next election for their inability or incompetence, either way, vote them out and demand action for new officials.

You can yack until you turn blue but to many have no desire or interest in anything other then their checks and drugs. If you think people around here want something better man stan look at our whole country , they don't even know what happen in liba, the irs scandal, or even the feds listen to their phone calls and you think these people around here are any different, give me a break.

Parents will bitch/complain no matter who is Super., If Jesus Christ himself was super, they'd come up with something. I don't know what was wrong with Reecia.....it's easy to sit at home pass judgement and know all the "right" decisions to make, but it's a little different story when you have the responsibility of making a decision for thousands of people/students, which means you're never going to please everyone...too many "know it all parents".

Calm down Stan it was a joke. Back maybe 5 years ago more or less that was how you got gravels on your road by voting for a magistrate. It was a win win, the magistrate got a vote and your driveway got covered.

We elected them now it's time to hold them responsible.
If we just sit around and do noting it'll be to late when it's all said and done, so call or go see these folks who came to your house and begged for your vote, tell them what you want in a new superintendent.

it's so funny to listen at this when nobody knows who it going to be the next super because they have to go threw a screening process for anyone can be considered for the job. And besides that no one knows who has put in for the job yet because it hasn't got to that point.
