Thank you MSSD for finally doing something. Even though he bashed you for it. I imagine his wife did most of it, since she thinks she may have to get a job. Let them move, they are mean and cruel people. Not to mention to much on fidelity.
WOW

Really. And just how do you know about their fidelity? It seems to me people just want to run someone in the ground on topix.

Goes to show Milan's real priority. Sports are more important than academics.

Coach Shepard is a good man, a Godly man, and a wonderful educator and influence on the kids he worked with over the years. Milan hasn't been competitive in basketball for years, boys or girls, and I think it speaks well of Milan that they kept Coach Shepard all these years instead of running him off for someone who might have produced a better record (didn't work in the girls program). Whatever he and Kelly do will be done with dignity, class, and a servants attitude. Good luck Coach!

Coach Shepard has always been great to my children, and has always been very friendly to our family. Unlike some families in Milan, he never once assumed that they were of a higher "rank" or place on the social ladder. I do not know his wife well, but my children are very upset that he is leaving.

I also heard that they fired the girls coach who has only been there a short while. Winning games is great, but education should come first. If these teachers were doing their jobs in the classroom and helping to make students successful, they should have been retained at Milan.

I loved Todd as a teacher. He taught both of my kids, and seemed to really take an interest in his students. But he should have stuck to coaching volleyball and gave up the basketball coaching position. There are alot of talented kids who wouldn't play because they didn't want to play for him. Academics are very important, and a good basketball player can get a college scholarship. Hopefully, Milan will hire a coach that will utilize players with talent and help them get better and into college, instead of running them off. I haven't hear about the girls coach but it wouldn't surprise me if he is gone too.

Todd is a good man and person. His wife...not so much...she is as evil as they come and she's been falling out of closets for some time with someone else. The arguement was never his character. He had put up with so much at home that honestly Id hate to give up bball and be home more too. Miss America 890 B.C. keeps dredging up all this mess on facebook and such. She can't let it go and she looks foolish. Get a job Kelly Shepard no one cares anymore about 1987. Try being nice for real and you may get better results bc half the town hates you bc of how nasty you are to them. The last time I checked servants don't act like that.

So the new concerned citizens group met with the school superintendent to try and get a handle on all the turnover at the high school and low moral in the system. But the super invited the some high school teachers and administrators to sit in on the meeting and the citizens group was scared to say what they wanted??? Just say it, there's a problem with the schools. Problems usually start at the top so sounds like you were on the right path. Talk to the superintendent, but don't chicken out when the other little administrators are sitting there. Not many people like them at all. They are just young boys following a manual that doesn't involve community input, morals, values, etc. Seriously, how many teachers have been removed from their jobs and placed in other positions that they were not happy with? How many quit just to go somewhere better. No one likes Milan anymore. The school is a joke. If you are really concerned then have a public forum, use the newspaper, radio, come on.........where is that Milan spirit. We have two locally owned media sources that could sound off and let the people talk. Unless someone is in their pocket? Good luck from Carroll County

Heard they were building a new gym over by the tracks where they tore the building down for him. I saw the coach going in the store downtown today with some ribbons and a bunch of shoestrings.
