Well were not talking about EKUs presidential salary issue here this is a madison county school discussion. If you want to talk about EKU or do a comparison to EKU then go start it somewhere else. I now cant afford to send mine there so who gives a crap, certainly not our state representatives. Now back to the original thread. I think what Floyd did was unethical but certainly not illegal. The blame lies with the board of bobble heads, some of which were too stupid to vote for themselves and just bobbed to Floyds tune and maybe a couple whos family may have benefited from some contract when these new schools were built in return for a yes bobble. Lackey as insane as he is was the only sane one on the board however it did seem that Renfro was starting to wake up and see the light and ask questions. I personally think a lot of questions still need to be asked and I also think an outside audit should be called for before Floyd leaves.
I was simply making a comparison that this goes on with every level and that people are not informed as evidenced by expressing they don't think tax dollars supports EKU. You are correct in that it is not an EKU forum. As for an audit. This county has been audited numerous times in the last 2.5 years both on a local, state and federal level. Nothing has ever turned up that has been illegal. If you blame the board for all that has gone on what about the people that either did not run to change things or voted for the board members we have. Are we not all to blame in one way or another? People complain but what do they do about any of it?

Folks,
This is an example of the sad state of intelligent thought in our community. Where my friend do you think EKU funds come from? The very few students that are 100% paid tuition account for very little of the money. The vast majority are receiving some type of assistance including school loans. Do you not realize that every university in this state is run with your local and federal tax dollar. Did you think there was a separate fund they draw from?
To put it in terms you perhaps will understand. YOUR tax dollar runs EKU, the Madison County School System, the public library and a host of other institutions.
This is what makes it so very easy for intelligent people such as the new president of EKU and Mr. Floyd to get the kinds of salaries and perks they get. The average person here doesn't even realize how they are being paid. The level of understanding nationwide and in the south in particular is so lacking that when a person of superior intelligence comes along they can take pretty much what they want. This poor soul actually thought EKU is funded from something other than his/her tax dollar. Sad indeed but we shouldn't wonder why the smart ones are able to take advantage from such as this.
i think, your superior intelligence, would keep you off this topic. those of us with an IQ below 160 like to vent with those on the same wave length. life can be very lonely at the top.

What is your point? You did not address the fact that you actually have people on this thread that think EKU is not funded by tax dollars. My point was how ill informed the statements are pertaining to this and contract issues.

Never in my life have I been disgusted with a single organization that I am with the Board of Education. For the first time, I am calling on all of the to resign they proven to be ineffective and at time rude. Does anyone know if they have visited any of the schools?
just wondering

You are so right, ignorance is in abundance in this county, or at least that is what Floyd believes. He has treated the people of this community like we were stupid for the last five years, using every avenue to make himself look good while caring very little about doing what is "right". And perhaps we are ignorant...had we been smart, we would have risked more to expose him for who he really is.
It's interesting to me that no one has posed the question about losing our 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in command all at the same time.(Floyd, Peffer and Welch). I do not for one second believe that is a coincidence. When they are all "gone" Floyd's real legacy will be revealed, and I don't think it will carry with it his name on a new school building.
After all, great leaders should have the confidence of those they lead. Poll the employees in this county and you will find how relieved they are to see him go. I have worked in the county for over 20 years and no other superintendent has stirred up such controversy or unrest.
So long Mr. Floyd. Time for us to dust your footprints off of our backs and move forward. We were never ignorant, just blind. May we never make the same mistake again!
Well said, would seem that all the "rats" are jumping ship at the same time.

I have to agree that people living here do not understand.
What would it help if they all walked out today? The state would then appoint new members to complete each of their terms that would be selected from recommendations made by local officials and politicians. Running yourself is the only solution to real change.

I don't believe this but so what if he does. He would be no different than 80% of the rest of the male population. I suppose you think Mrs. Floyd is stupid enough to leave a 30 year marriage, financial security, the father of her children over (if it is occurring) what is nothing more than a meaningless fling. She will be leaving here shortly, she will be in Frankfort and later on he will get the next job up the ladder. If all the women in Richmond left their cheating husbands they would have to leave the courthouse open 24 hours a day. Wake up. Women seldom leave powerful men. It has been going on thru history for hundreds of years.

That is your thoughts on the matter. You see how much they matter as he leaves for a highly respected, high paying position don't you. You like others are all talk and no proof. All this talk about audits, which many have been done, all this talk about personal issues, none proven and he continues to rise. Makes all of you look so foolish and silly. Just a bunch of frustrated people with zero proof. If you had it you would have produced it.

How do you know? Have you actually seen him looking at porn?
