Oh fiddle-dee-dee! Why not give it a break on this sickening debate of "my dad/mom loves kids more than your dad/mom...?"
Enough already on the lovin me some kids to get "gotcha" moment in this "war of words" in the politics of personal distruction....
The "no kids/no vote" mantra that the union activists launched against the 2011 school board candidates was vile and disgusting; and not worthy of repeating the "no kids/no vote" in this 2013 election...
Why not stick to the issues and promote voting for the only two school board candidates that had the courage and confidence in themselves to step up and stand up with school district taxpayers at the polls on November 5, 2013.
People in this community should be sending thanks and appreciation to Mr. David Bitner and Mr. Kolton Vaughn! These two civic minded citizens have proven that they've got the WILL and the SKILL in which they need to go into board room battle AGAINST the Parents for S-U-R-E union activists!
BRAVO! BRAVO! Good Luck to these young men and their families!
Fresh ideas (including NEW reform minded BOE leadership) have allowed our district to sustain itself in an uncertain economy with NO new money required!
Just Vote YES! to Reduced Renewal Levy ...
Just Vote YES! YES! to new leadership with fresh ideas ...
JUST VOTE FOR DAVID BITNER AND KOLTON VAUGHN!
Visit their website and get to know more about their reform minded thinking on our children's 21st century education needs...
Visit their open house meeting on October 21 and offer a friendly handshake and an encouraging word or two..
...remind them to enjoy basking in the sunshine of goodwill from their supporters outside the school community;
heaven knows how difficult it is for any good citizen to shine a little light in that narrow tunnel vision of status quo SEA
union hall.... once these two responsible budgeting school board candidates get elected as our next to school board representatives.

Nice.....blame it on the boosters! It's not their responsibility to pay for coaches and it's not their fault there's a gap. Don't lower Pay to participate and there won't be a gap.

"Where was Mr. Malone", you ask?
Each and every school day, Mr. Malone's top priority was to act as though he was best friends with virtually every student at Springboro high school. A person's image is everything, particularly if such an image is vaulted to the "insanely popular" category. It must demand a tremendous amounts of both TIME AND EFFORT in order to satisfactorily maintain that prestigious image with the kids, y'know.
#28074 Oct 17, 2013
In the future there is of course a potential for Springboro school board to move into direct negotiations with SEA regarding benefits and salaries. Malone is a former high school principal. Stuckey is a former teacher. During their careers, inarguably both have had quite intimate ties with the SEA. If both Malone and Stuckey are sitting on a future board, are you suggesting there wouldn't be a conflict of interest in having either one of them take part with SEA negotiations?

...And neither is it the taxpaying homeowners fault that "there's a gap."
I see No Blame on the boosters... but see no one being held accountable nor taking responsibility for mis-management of the Athletics Boosters Board business during all those years that one of the board officers was stealing money from the kids sports program.
I do say Shame on All parents, school leaders, elected officials and booster board officials who who were so smitten with their insanely popular leaders that they were blinded to the robbery going on right under their own noses.
Inquiring minds are just asking why no one involved could smell the stinking stunk in their midst.
Inquiring minds are still asking where is the $439,000 that was supposed to have been paid back? And why is this money that was recovered from the Boosters Board officer thief not used to fund the athletic program. Why is the new school athletic director complaining that he can't get the additional coaches he needs to do his job and a'int that a shame in this "rich" school district?

Stay Alert Voters! Why is our current pro-union school board member, Don Miller, who has decided not to run for re-election, now trying to influence the election with his endorsement in the DDN of Kolton Vaughn and Charles Anderson? Could it be the old "divide and conquer" political strategy that our liberal frenemies from across the aisle are so deeply embedded?
Think about it...we already know that darling old man who has been a princiPAL for the PAST thirteen years is a shoe in...
hmmm... could this push from pro-union board member Miller to endorse splitting the Responsible Budgeting Bitner/Vaughn ticket be a S-U-R-E win-win-win on November 5th for union-first school board candidates Malone/Stuckey/Anderson?
#28078 Oct 17, 2013
We are new to Boro. What does S.T.A.R.S mean?
#28079 Oct 17, 2013
I don't think they are related.
Vote Bitner, Vaughn, and Anderson

Shame on the Boosters? JC, don't you think they feel bad enough that they where duped by someone they trusted? Haven't you ever been screwed over before?
#28081 Oct 17, 2013
I concur completely, there is NO CONFLICT of interest with either of these two men running for school board.
My concern is:
How will a UNION CONTROLLED school board would spend your TAX DOLLARS?
#28082 Oct 17, 2013
Seriously. For some reason I feel like I am missing out on a philosophy or something. I have learned more from this forum than any of the candidates or that SURE page. Just trying to get in the loop with you guys.
#28083 Oct 17, 2013
Or we could stop stealing from the organizations and run a clean program with real costs and incomes in plain sight instead of behind a smoke screen.
After we have run a year or so with a real commitment towards doing the right thing, maybe we can see we we truly lie in regards to this financing.
I would like to forward the proposition that the money recovered from Mr. Harves belongs to the parents of the children who paid the pay to participate fees.
After all, those parents were the ones making up the shortfalls in revenues due to the continued theft that was occurring in the high school's support organization that Mr. Malone was supposed to be overseeing.
#28084 Oct 17, 2013
Don Miller's opinions and viewpoints haven't garnered a great deal of respect during his four years on the board. What makes you think that might change now?

Education is not about respect...
"Education is about power and money and who gets to control
both." -Thomas Gunlock, State Board of Education
How would a union-first Malone/Stuckey/Anderson board majority
mis-use our children's first budgeting school tax dollars?
Based on Mr. Malone's past history, when he was given a choice last March 2012 to decide between Students first best interest,
OR making the SEA president, Mr. Maney and his staff happy,
Mr. Malone led our high school students in protest of board authority in order to bend to the will of the SEA president's
Remember in November to Vote ONLY for Students First/Responsible Budgeting school board candidates,
DAVID BITNER AND KOLTON VAUGHN
It's a winning ticket for ALL (no matter which union-first school board candidate comes in third)!
#28086 Oct 17, 2013
Scott Anderson and Charles Anderson are not related;
but they are both former BOE members.
Scott Anderson was the BOE president who teamed up with
board member Don Miller, along with Ron Malone and Scott Maney,
in efforts of the union to push newly elected children's first board members out of public service, by staging a "re-instate Ron Malone" student/community wide protest during March 2012.
Charles Anderson was board member during the 90's, which would have produced the Baker era of good old boy union-first years.
Aren't Don Miller and Ron Malone the last of the "good old boys" that were actively serving in leadership all the way back to the beginning of former athletic director, Troy Holtrey, presenting to the board his recommendation of the high pay to play fees?
Our school district has certainly come a long way from way back then... Why would anyone who cares about our school children and community NOT vote for school board candidates DAVID BITNER and
KOLTON VAUGHN who are already on board with wanting the highest academic achievement and fiscal responsibility?
VOTE FOR DAVID BITNER AND KOLTON VAUGHN!
STUDENTS FIRST/RESPONSIBLE BUDGETING!
A WINNING TICKET FOR ALL!

You just don't get it, the money was stolen from the fundraising efforts of the boosters and the teams, not the school. The money had been repaid. It's the BOEs job to figure out why there is a shortfall, maybe because there are less than half a dozen of sports that are profitable, the rest run a deficit. The SAB should not fill a gap they did not create! The money should go to help the schools with major repairs such as new tennis courts and a new track.

huh? the boosters are a separate group until the last election the BOE could not follow their own monies boosters they help the SPORTS ITS the board of EDUCATION
#28089 Oct 18, 2013
Not a Chance that the Boosters shame and blame on Springboro's taxpaying homeowners could dupe taxpayers; Springboro voters are smart enough to fail five unnecessary school tax levy increases; and smart enough to fail a CCFD Kidd 93% fire levy tax increase this past May.
Gone are the days when smart voters can be emotionally blackmailed into voting tax increases on our our own family homes, just to pay away the Boosters' bad feelings for being duped by one of their very own trusted officials.
Haven't you ever had to stop whining, count your losses, take reponsibility for your bad financial decisions, and just move on to higher ground of accountability working within the law?
Or do you believe that the Athletic Boosters are above the law; and should be bailed out of financial difficulty by those who had no input into how the Athletics Boosters were running their outside sports business, using the resources of Springboro students and tax-payer funded schools, for their own personal
Where is the $439,000 that was stolen from the students/parents who were paying to participate in the sports program?
And why is the athletic director now whining to taxpayers for
more, more, more...?
