Levies are forever! That's why our Clearcreek CCFD 2001 FOREVER Levy is still generating ENOUGH TAX REVENUE to support our needed CCFD public safety services, with NO ADDITIONAL LEVY NEEDED IN NOVEMBER 2013! Our May 7th Victory over the firefighters union has proven that NO ADDITONAL LEVY is needed for our CCFD for many years! Just say NO to Mr. Kidd and his Bully Campaign to Shove this Unnecessary Evil request down the throats of levy-fatigued taxpayers AGAIN in November! Where's the Success in that, Mr. Kidd?
Remember in November that Voters are urged to Say YES to Springboro Schools Renewal Levy with No New Taxes , which is needed, for the first time since our 2008 Renewal School Levy passed with a solid Victory! Since 2010, when Dr. Kelly Kohls came on board, she has been joined by other reform minded school board representatives, and together our Board is successfully implementing Our Children First Budgeting plan, which IS working!
Dr. Kelly Kohls has worked tirelessly in the best interest of our children's future, educating our community as a whole that our childlren first budgeting board members are committed to ensuring that the children of the Springboro community receive an excellent education, while keeping the costs of that education affordable, by carefully adhering to responsible spending.
The time has now come for us to help Dr. Kohls continue our success in keeping Springboro Education both Excellent And Afordable! The time has come in November 2013 to ask Dr. Kohls to work for our school children and community FOUR more years!
Thank you, Dr. Kohls, for helping Springboro become a way better place to live, work, learn, and play sports! Please know ouf our continued support of your leadership and re-election in November 2013!
As for me and my household of voters, we will support our successful agenda of children first budgeting board representatives, who are committed to ensuring that the children of the Sprngboro community receive an excellent education while keeping the costs of that education affordable, by carefully adhering to responsible spending.

Thank you, Dr. Kohls, for helping Springboro become a way better place to live, work, learn, and play sports! Please know ouf our continued support of your leadership and re-election in November 2013!

Only a true moron ....? Who Are You Calling a Moron? Do you know the definition of a "moron?"
1. A stupid person; a dolt.
2. Psychology A person of mild mental retardation having a mental age of from 7 to 12 years and generally having communication and social skills enabling some degree of academic or vocational education. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive.
Why not stop the name calling and the mean-spirited bullying of your neighbors, who are taxpaying homeowners and voters, having an opinion of individual responsibility, instead of collective government micro-managing of OUR money?
Only a long-time township trustee government "micro-manager" like Ed Wade would believe that township homeowners can just blindly "trust the trustee" and Vote yes to increased taxes on our family homes! Ed Wade has been elected to public service for so long that he now projects his attitude of "owning the public" for his "service of best interest to the government's own."
Ed Wade is the same trustee who just said NO to township homeowners' request for a 2013 tax holiday; after the recommendation had been made by a government official reporting to the public that the township government had over-collected taxes from township homeowners; and that the government could well afford to give the taxpayers a break, because of the big government surplus of funds.
Clearcreek Township Trustee, and Trustee President, Ed Wade, refused; saying that he thought the government could make better use of the money than the taxpayers who had earned the money. Ed Wade also said at public meeting that the township would have a fire levy in 2013 because a NEW FIRE STATION had to be built. The "need for a new fire station" was the FIRST excuse that Ed Wade gave to the public; now that this "excuse for new money" is dispelled and there is no need for a new fire station, homeowners are being bullied to vote hundreds of dollars of increased taxes on our homes just to keep service at the current level. That just doesn't make sense. That's why we just need to say NO to the Wade/Gabbard vote to Increase Taxes of hundreds of dollars on our family homes; and just support the leadership of the township trustee who voted NO New Taxes on homeowners, but Yes to Cutting Expenses of the government.
The time has come for CCFD to attack runaway labor costs and reform their budget; The time has come for CCFD to stop bullying taxpaying homeowners with threats that the government is going to cut us to the core with big "hurts".....
.... until we cave in to the firefighters union request levy increasing fire levy taxes 93%!
The time has come for taxpaying homeowners to stand strong on the responisble choice of NO to Additonal levies in November 2013.

Given the latest news from Michigan regarding the passing of Right to Work legislation in that state it is encouraging to know that Ohio is right behind them. No longer should teachers be coerced into to participating in an organization that contradicts many teachers moral convictions. See links below. Forced unionism is a Marxist philosophy and has no place in Springboro. Yes a teacher can opt out, but must still pay a large portion of the Membership dues. How about giving the teachers the ability to opt out and pay nothing.

The Pro Union thugs that attend your meetings undermine and interfere with the Board's efforts of promoting fiscally responsible Pro Student/tax Payer initiative’s. The noise they make always leads back to what’s best for the teachers union interests with little concern for the Student or the Tax payer. Please understand I am thankful for the many great teachers in Springboro, it’s the Union who we have issues with.

Please do not cave to their Thug Tactics, the Community is behind you and appreciate your efforts to be fiscally responsible. Unelected Union Sympathizers have no platform to constantly harass the BOE members as they are neither Staff nor Union Members. As Union puppets their only purpose is create division and discontentment within the Schools and Community.

The best thing that can happen is to make Right to Work a Law here in Ohio and it is coming. http://www.10tv.com/content/stories/2012/12/1 ...

Check out what the NEA/Teachers Union stands for regarding Homosexuality, Liberal and Christian viewpoints. In my opinion Teachers Unions are like affirmative action, they force employers to compensate groups of individuals based on the demands of the group rather than individual performance/contributions. It is insulting to individual liberty and personal responsibility and is basically a legal form of extortion. Do we really want organizations with these kinds of radical agendas shaping our schools ideology?

Okay, first off you make yourself look like a bigger idiot every time you copy and paste this same corporate propaganda because the links never work! I highly doubt you have ever read the links yourself as they part of a well financed marketing packet which you dutifully paste without question.

Secondly, your fascist roots are showing with these unfounded attacks against gays and liberals, and Chrisitans? The unholy alliance with corporations to enforce an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government is fascism, plain and simple. Which is ironic given your claims of being bullied.

You know what you REALLY are? You are terrorists who blow up buildings, not with bombs, but with corporate dollars. And you don't just blow up buildings, you destroy fire houses, police stations, school yards. You destroy lives just the same as your Islamic counterparts.

George W. answered the question quite eloquently back in 2001 as to why you hate our community:

Americans are asking "Why do they hate us?"

They hate what they see right here in this chamber: a democratically elected government. Their leaders are self-appointed. They hate our freedoms: our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other...

These terrorists kill not merely to end lives, but to disrupt and end a way of life. With every atrocity, they hope that America grows fearful, retreating from the world and forsaking our friends. They stand against us because we stand in their way.

We're not deceived by their pretenses to piety.

We have seen their kind before. They're the heirs of all the murderous ideologies of the 20th century. By sacrificing human life to serve their radical visions, by abandoning every value except the will to power, they follow in the path of fascism, Nazism and totalitarianism. And they will follow that path all the way to where it ends in history's unmarked grave of discarded lies.

KOHLS IS AN OUT OF CONTROL, DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO TEA-BAG NUT JOB!
Dredging up the financial misfortunes of an individual that fought for two years before succumbing to the economic climate that has pervaded our land these past four years shows just how classless the writer of this piece is.

Mrs. Kohls believes in fiscal responsibility, her own experience has been a stern taskmaster. Mrs. Kohls message of conservative financial management is one which we should heed when looking at the public financing of our institutions. The citizens of Springboro should be in no rush to join hundreds of other communities that have extended their finances well beyond their means. Cities from Detroit, MI to San Bernadino, CA are all feeling the crushing burden of crony capitalism and crony unionism.
Transparency in government is a good thing for all citizens. Contracts let in the friendly confines of a dark back room among "friends" are ultimately paid for by the hardworking taxpayer who is forced to do with less while supporting more unnecessary expenditures made in their name.
The time of the back room deals are done, let the public know what you are spending their money upon.

Springboro Parents Love Our Children First!

Before Dr. Kohls got on the Springboro School board, this school distrrict projected a $30 million deficit. Now, the district projects a $5 million surplus after replacing many things taken from the children during the levy campaigns. This school district has now added many curriculum and safety measures for the children of our district. All of this without new money! What changed? This school board has become much more efficient, holding people accountable, and making all decisions using what is good for education and our school children as FIRST priiority.

The past five year forecast did not include repairs needed to our building. Windows, heating and air systems and roofs and many more items creating a safe and comfortable environment for our kids. NOW, the district has budgeted $2.5 million for a capitol investment plan as recommended to the board by an audit firm and our district administrative assessments. This capitol plan will be able to replace, roofs, windows, paint, flooring and other infrastructures as needed. AGAIN, this was not done in previous forecasts!

Special Thanks to Dr. Kohls and our children first budgeting board representatives for making our Springboro Schools SAFER and MORE COMFORTABLE for our students and teachers to Work and Learn!
Springboro Taxpayers Appreciate the Work of our hard working school board, school administrative staff and classroom teachers! Springboro loves Our Children First!

Remember In November to Support Our Schools Success!
Vote for "Our Children First Budgeting" board representatives in November!
Vote YES for Springboro Schools Renewal Levy
(with No additional levies needed)!

Currently, our only elected BOE official who LOVES TAX AND SPEND is too-long sitting on the board, Don Miller. Mr. Miller is the only current board member that was "on board" way back then, when taxpayers were being emotionally blackmailed by a continuous stream of unnecessary levies demanding increased union wages and benefits, holding parents hostage over things like busing and activities fees. Mr. Miller is the only board member "still sitting" who went along to get along with the
"scamming our students high pay to play fees" presented by then Athletic director Troy Holtrey, and embraced by the entire board of pro-union Board of Education elected officials. Not one responsible question regarding HOW this high cost was determined by Mr. Holtrey was asked by either one of the five board members,
at that time (Miller,Kruse,Trifaro,Thomsen, Colston).
Now that Mr. Creager is retiring, I believe the four teachers/coaches involved in this "boro boosters sting" are the only school staff left "in service" that were involved from the beginning of 2009. Anybody know if all this "emezzlement stuff" has been handled and offenders held responsible?
Seems as if Springboro parents David Bowman, Sarah Jobe, Lisa Babb and Tiffany Carlisle (among others) have kept the attention on their Big Bully Campaigns against Springboro Taxpayers for saying NO to additional levies; and attacking character of Springboro school board members, than they have interest in taxpayers providing an excellent education for all children, while keeping education affordable for all Springboro families.

The way I see it, the big labor Union bosses own the Political System in our State of Ohio since 1983; but We the People Are Free to make choices that question and challenge the Political System in Ohio that is keeping our unemployment HIGH and our job security in the private sector LOW.
Why would any politician in Ohio try leading us into the 21st Century workplace with the restraints of old outdated collectively bargains laws leaving our economic and job growth left behind?

New book takes hard look at Emergency Service practices

‘Conspiracy among America’s Heroes’ exposes malpractice among firefighters, EMTs and government officials.

With the publication of his new book “Conspiracy among America’s Heroes”(published by AuthorHouse), Chief Kelly Daugherty presents a career’s worth of experience into both the good and the bad sides of public service.

“This book will take you through the trials and tribulations a fire chief is faced with on a daily basis,” says Daugherty.“Anyone who is a manager, supervisor, leader, or involved in human-relation issues, needs to read this book, learn from these truculent life lessons, and use them for future reference. Are you willing to take the ethical challenge?”

Daugherty exposes many of the injustices common in emergency services. Through his detailed examples, he presents poor work ethics, illegal activity and a basic failure to provide the services for which personnel are sworn to perform. He explores “… ethics or the lack thereof, being honest to yourself and others, being accountable to your constituents and the people which you work with, and more important – learning to do the right thing, even if it means leaving your chosen profession.”

school board elections. Springboro Bully Parents, including Lisa Babb, Tiffany Carlisle, Mary Johnson , among others in the SURE protest group against our school districts new philosophy of children FIRST; are now joining evil forces with Christopher Ritter's OPEN SPRINGBORO PROJECT to try once again, at May 23 public school board meeting, to overthrow "the will of the people" as voiced in the 2011 school board elections, and REINSTATE the Springboro Education Associaition's power and control over our BOE agenda and our children's school tax dollars.
Folks, it's all about the money and the OEA/SEA has launched full-scale War of Words against Springboro Taxpayers and our locally elected children first budgeting BOE majority!
Please come to the board meeting on Thursday, May 23, at the
SHS LGI room and educate yourself to Stand Strong in Support of Our Children First Budgeting BOE representatives and our BOE proposed employment contract to our Springboro Schools Union Employees.
