I can't see why they put that school way up on that deserted hill. Wouldn't it be a better place for a prison than a school?

I guess you didn't get that memo from the state. Here's a synopsis: The intelligent beings in Charleston informed us that it is better to remove schools from communities and better to place prisons in them. What better place than a prison for the community to rally around. I can hear the band playing and the cheerleaders cheering for the Mingo County Convicts now. EIEIEIO, GO CONVICTS, GO CONVICTS, GO!!! AWWW...the future of Mingo County.

Go Convicts Go. Make their Jersey's Black and White Striped. LMAO, your just mad because Williamson is only going to be a county seat now instead of a large town it once was. Hell, they should put a Wal Mart right in the middle of Red Jacket... That would work awesome. People from Beech Creek, Matewan, Buskirk, and Red Jacket would have it made. Williamson would never be the same again...

It's not just about Williamson you idiot, but several of the towns in this county. Do you honestly think the other towns wanted this school? They don't! Hell, the kids from Gilbert have farther to drive to get to the new school than the kids in Williamson, Matewan, or Delbarton do. It's not just a Williamson problem.

What is the big deal with all this anomosity towards Williamson? You people salivate at the idea of Williamson going under. I'm a young person who grew up in Mingo County (not Williamson), and I want the town to succed, just as I want all other towns in MY county to succeed. People, like yourself, have a bad attitude and it's destroying this county. I can't believe you honestly want a town in our county to fail. That's scary! Williamson, Matewan, Delbarton, and Gilbert all are losing a part of their history at the end of this school year. Williamson kids are not the only ones getting the sh%t end of the stick here.

I am looking forward to the new school for my children. It will have a much better curriculum and the football will eventually be wonderful. In my opinion, all of these people talking about the fights that are going to go on need to grow up and quit knocking this so badly. The parents especially need to stop putting down the idea because your children are going to feed off of your negativity and are going to go into this with a terrible attitude.

Hell yea and instead of it being unincorporated city it would be a corp orated one then, and I can run for Mayor of Red Jacket. Then I would build a huge water park using a filtration system and the creek water, Dude it would be the shit. then bull doze down porgies old spot and put the mcDonalds there. And where the grade school is put the park.
make a rollercoaster that goes up that hill over there by the apartments. call it wonder land. I would legalize medical marijuana and have a psychiatrist come in and give everyone a marijuana card. And i would open up a Weed Cafe, somewhere close so you could purchase the dankest of dank. And have some of my good old friends working for me. LOL that would be great make Red Jacket prosperous again, don't let it Rot away...

I don't see how this new school is going to help our children.In the winter when roads are snowy and icy the State Road isn't going to keep up these roads any better with this new school than they do now. And look how far these kids have to travel to and from school.Com bining schools that are rivals and have always been that way are going to make more fights and divide the kids into gangs making it more dangerous for our children.We are not going to have any better teachers than we do now because they are coming with the school. Just look at these schools how many are going to be unemployed.We are going to pay the same taxes for this school as we do for the schools we have now there will be no tax decrease.I would rather pay higher taxes than to put my child where there are going to be more peer pressure of trying to fit in.

Sports is not everything. It's sure not going to make anybody a career. Education is more important.

listen those sports that aren't important is what the community thrives on and have you ever heard of the pros or coaches I guess it doesn't make careers either...these sports help pay these teachers to give these kids educactions so think about that bobby

I think it would be a terrible idea to put these school's together. They already know what will happen. I heard that they are going to have police men in the office and they'll have metal detectors. Don't you think it's not a very bright idea for these children ? Why waste money ?
