Can you believe that some one stole Shoffner, Byrne, Kelley, campaign signs out of my neighbors yard? Then I was told they have stolen ther signs out of other people's yard and they threaten their church ad friends because they want to win so badly they will stoop to anything to win. If you have to steal campaign signs to win then you are already a looser and will not be good for the city, county, state, school, and students. I hope the police is watching and they will make an arrest soon.

I don't know all the new candidates well, but I know one of them and I don't believe for a second that she would be a party to anything like that. No one should have their property messed with, but it seems like it is awfully easy to just make these accusations without any proof.

Often there is no evidence because there was NO theft. Just a ploy for more attention. Seems to go one alot for a certain group of incumbents.

Why do you find it hard to believe that over 80 signs have gone missing. That's not stealing when someone comes on your property and takes campaign signs. If it's not stealing what is it? You are accusing the incumbents stealing their own signs? Your topix name is accurate Judged. Reads like a criminal mind to think in those terms.
No go

When you come home from work and drive up in your drive way the signs are gone. Some one stole them they can't get up and walk away. That is how I know my signs were stolen.

I'm not disputing that signs have gone missing. That happens in every election. What I'm saying is that it seems unfair to automatically blame the challengers when it could just as well be someone else who just doesn't like the incumbents or could even be someone trying to drum up sympathy for them. I'm not accusing anyone, just saying that I haven't heard any evidence one way or another. If there is some lets hear it. Until then no assumptions should be made about good people, which as far as I know, they ALL are.

What is bad is that they put it on facebook? Come ON people GROW UP! Not the place to vent crying over stolen signs. Sure it's bad that someone stolen the signs but don't cry about it on facebook! I can't wait until it's over! I have never heard of anything so stupid and childish in all my life! Do it with class. bite your tongue and don't vent it out. You should know better than that! God how old are you all? I'm not voting for any of those immature idiots at this point!

Your probably not going to vote for them anyway. So make Facebook your excuse. Why not let your friends know that lives and churches have been threatened for supporting them. I bet you would sew your mouth shout and say not a word if you were running for a public office and these things were happening to you. Right ? Who would you turn to? If it was me I would turn to my friends and family and let know that there is an evil force in our town determined to go to any length to destroy my campaign and my run for the school board. That is what friends are for. You my dear are looking at life through rose colored glasses and don't deal with reality.

Lives threatened?? Evil forces?? Oh please. I guess we'll be reading about this in the paper, right? If lives have been threatened the police are investigating that, right? Providing security? In a small town like this that's front page news.

Really. You must live in a bubble. Why don't you get off your ass and call the police yourself and ask them. I have lived here all of my life and everything that happens in this town does not hit the front page. You need to wake up and face the facts. You watch too much television this is not CSI. It's Middlesboro.

Sounds like you're the one watching too much television. I'm not the one claiming that "evil forces" (including a retired teacher and a preacher) are threatening my life.

. I don't recall saying about charlotte or Jeff. You did. Do you think that is who stealing the signs? Lol. You didn't mention J J hum. I think any one that threatens a life is evil. Do I need to explain evil?

I don't know all the candidates, which is why I left one out. It would be a mistake to try to read anything into that. And no, since you have trouble with reading, let me be very clear. I do NOT think school board candidates are stealing signs. Nor do I think they are threatening anyone's life. I think that is what YOU want people to think.

YOU are the one who is implying that the opposition candidates to the incumbents are stealing signs and making threats. If that is not what you intend people to think, then who are YOU accusing? Who/what are these forces of evil?

The incumbents have had very little competition in Middlesboro's school board race for many years. Now that they have it, they don't understand why everyone is not going to vote for them!

Further, they don't understand why political signs are always one of the first and easiest targets of a political race.

Nothing new here, except for the joyous sights and sounds of representative democracy and local politics at work! Can't stand the heat? Well, you know the rest.

BS you have two screen names. Good for you. Let me be very clear i never said anything about the opposition candidates your brought that up. I didn't accuse anyone by name. All I am saying that there has been threats and stealing. Some one or some bodies are doing their best to sabotage this board race. I know who they are and you do to. If they sink this low to insure they get hired as the new super then they will do anything to win. If they cheat on test scores they will distort the truth to win. Teachers know.

I don't have any screen names. I use whatever seems to fit what I am responding to, although why you find that important is a mystery to me.

No, you haven't identified anyone by name. But you clearly want the challenging candidates to take the blame. If we get a new board then we'll see who applies for the position of superintendent. I suspect there will be more than one person. We can argue about who it should be at that point. The only thing that is clear at this point is that if we have no change in the board, we will have no change in the administration. In my opinion, that is the worst possible outcome.

Cheating on tests? I believe that the state investigated some allegations. Maybe you can tell us what charges they filed as a result of their findings. I am not aware of any. I'm sure you have proof or you wouldn't be making more unsubstantiated claims. I'd be interested in hearing it.

. You are playing mind games and I am not biting. You know the story and you what the state found. You know what the sanction were.. Yes there will be any applications when you pad the board guess who gets hired? The worst out come is Steve Martin.
