This is the reality of the rest of Springboro. John Agenbroad was overheard saying that Springboro does not have a financial crisis, there are no foreclosures here. Interesting the Democrats in this town don't get it at all they just keep spending like no one is watching or hurting. I only want real people in these public offices. You can't know what the rest of the voters experience unless you are one.

Lisa won't ever be over the levy defeat. Every meeting she is on "when ya goin for a levy"?

While it's true it is so-o-o embarrassing hearing these bitter and revengeful Levy Ladies (backed by union support) parade around town and public meetings trashing and bashing the accomplishments of our new board; it is also an opportunity for those who support the leadership of our new board to "set the record straight." Just tell the levy ladies and their coalition of schoolyard bullies that "we know we did the right thing" by electing three strong, moral, community supporters who are doing what's right putting our children's future first!
And let us take time out of our busy schedules to say a special Thank You to Kelly Kohls, David Petroni, and Jim Rigano, whenever
we have opportunity at board mettings or just around town.
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.

Keep in mind that it was a union supported coalition led by Scott Anderson and Don Millr who led a community wide attack on our BOE majority members who support transparency in our school district finances, fairness in our pay to play fees, and our Children First Budgeting plan.
While our school district is moving on and we are now focused on our new board's accomplishments, we
need to remember that the Anderson/Miller anti-education coalition on March 27 protested against our children's future and reversed the "plan" which was in the best interest of our children's education (and within our Board of Education's agreed upon goals) but the real question is WHY?
Those who know the answer need to spread the truth, simply put; because Scott Anderson and Don Miller supported former school board candidates, Lisa Babb and Gentry Ellis; and many members of the district unions also supported these two candidates; and supported the third candidate, Jane Gregg. These three candidates were not elected; but they have been at the front of this continued course to discredit and bully the elected school board into resigning or to render them ineffective.
Don Miller remains an elected official; and still Don Miller consistently argues, protests, and votes against our children's best interests first. Why?...it is asked?
Well, as this new board has stated, we have significant academic issues to address; and this continued assault on our school board seeks to slow the new board's accomplishments, hurting our kids; while Don Miller and his union backed coalition continue "bullying" for more power as they position themselves for negotiations.

Based on information presented at the last public school board meeting, our new board and new school administration team have fully reviewed and firmed up our existing Booster organizational/school district policies that will protect our schools athletic boosters fundraising business and strengthen our schools athletic program.
In addition to reviewing "District Duties" and "Organization Duties" a "Concession Oversight Team" is now in place (comprised of Superintendent, CFO, and one rep from each group) to review monthly financials. This committee will look into other third party supplies and uniform pricing. Oversight team meetings will be held on September 25; October 23; and December ll, 2012.
Looks like our school district and Springboro community are on our way to a brighter day doing what's right for our school children.
And for New Beginnings in a new direction for our children's future, we can express sincere appreciation and thanks to our new school board and school superintendent. Thank You!

Sometime during this coming Saturday afternoon, Mitt Romney's campaign has scheduled a stop northwest of Columbus in Powell, OH. Approximately 3 miles up the road in nearby Lewis Center, the opening meeting of the Ohio School Board Leadership Council (OSBLC) is to convene at 1PM.

I can't think of a more shrewd, brass ring opportunity for Mitt Romney than to make a surprise stop at this OSBLC meeting. I believe doing so would in essense ally Romney's campaign with a continually growing number of public school communities nationally that have discovered how to internally take the reins in terms of controlling overspending in their schools. Ronmey could utilize a stop at this inaugural OSBLC meeting to highlight the fiscal priorities of students before other agendas, as well as speak to the values and life lessons leaned from student volunteerism.

What does she stand for anymore? She acts like she backs the schools, but then bashes them. You should have seen her at the open house the other night. What a prima donna. She didn't think she should have to wait to get the schedule. Really? There are a thousand kids but she shouldn't have to wait. You obviously don't support the schools or we wouldn't have to deal with listening to those complaints. What do you stand for Tiff? Do the community a favor and when you go out keep your negative comments to yourself so we can actually enjoy our time with our kid on a very important night. There is more to life than talking (complaining) just to hear yourself talk. I am embarrassed for you!

At North Park's SOS meeting, all Tiffany could talk about was a need for getting new faces and voices at Tuesday night BOE meetings. There's absolutely nothing wrong with anyone encouraging a higher level of involvement in our community. The inherent problem in Carlisle's mindset is she encouraged this involvement merely days after a media revelation of an upcoming investigation surrounding an alleged shifty Booster donation. What was marketed by Carlisle as good civic intent was in essence a poorly crafted smokescreen intended to distract the public from the Boosters current difficulties.

What's the most pathetic part of the story? Since SOS, Carlisle et al have done next to nothing to help themselves. Seemingly every time Carlisle or Babb opens their mouths to speak yet another small group of disgusteds will inevitably stand up and walk out, often times bantering back and forth with each other down the halls of SHS all the way out the front doors and into the parking lot.

We now have a new 4-1 BOE "children first" majority and a new superintendent and administrative team in place; now fully supporting the new philosophy and direction in which our new BOE president is leading our school district and community as a whole!

It is inspiring to see the colorful new artwork in the district offices reflecting our new district leaders agenda of "putting children first!" And now that the dull old "black and white" pictures of structures are gone; so be it with our dull old "status quo" grumbling as usual bullies. It is past time for these community bullies to be "gone" from the bully pulpit spotlight at our public school board meetings.

Isn't it time that concerned taxpayers simply stood up and "objected" to this waste of our time and money that these bullies are using to keep our kids's future behind and distract our new staff that are doing what's right for our children's future!

Isn't it past time to remind our Neighbors for Springboro schools pro-levy committee members that
our school board elected officials work for the Springboro community as a whole; to provide a quality education for our kids while living within the means of our community?

Scott Anderson should have stepped down from his position on the BOE but not for the reasons most posters have given.
Obviously, Springboro's schools are run by the goood old boys and girls contingent and special interest groups that are totally self centered; they care nothing about protecting the assests of the community.
Ask yourself what benefit Scott derives from asking the community to make tough but financial sound decisions? He probably knew the heat he would take, but his concern for the financial viability of our school system was overridden by the abuse he is now receiving from these short sighted but vocal few.
I and many others wish Scott and his wonderful family nothing but the best and thank him for his service to our community.

Oh please, give me break. Scott is a coward, who always runs from a fight. Like a kid who doesn't get his way, he takes his marbles and goes home. I have nothing but disdain for 'chicken little". Anyone can win when they have everyone on their side. The ones that deserve credit are those that hold their ground when outnumbered.

The ones that EARN credit are those that stand firmly on legal and ethical principals of by-laws and policies that govern relations between our school district and community members.

Both Scott Anderson and Don Miller violate these principals by showing no respect for board authority and no respect for community taxpayers. Elected officials cannot "govern" those for whom they hold no respect.

Scott Anderson's resignation is Appreciated! Don Miller has yet to EARN equal appreciation.
