Simply put, Doug is much better at addressing important issues on this blog
(unlike "the more you know") and that is a winner on this blog, no matter the name.

Yup, it sure is worth repeating.

The Democratic primary voters gave a grand total amongst of 44 votes from three distinct and separate Democratic precincts for the genteel women of the left.

Combined they were unable to pull in as many votes as Mr. Petroni did in one precinct.

Petroni 50 votes

Bindeman, Greenburg, and Gregg combined for 44 votes total from like minded Democrats

It sure enough is worth repeating.

Talk percentages:

Ms. Bindeman: 88.89 %
Mr. Wiedeman: 63.11 %
Mr. Petroni: 34.97%
34, 63, 69, 84, or 88 which number is the largest.
No doubt about it who the real bully is.....
Total votes tell us once again

The Big Kahuna aka Ms Bindeman pulled in a whopping 24 votes from her fellow Democratic voters.

Ms. Greenburg pulled in a whopping 11 votes from her fellow Democratic voters

Ms. Gregg pulled in a whopping 9 votes from her fellow Democratic voters

Mr. Petroni pulled in 50 votes from his fellow Republican voters despite being smeared for two and a half years by at least a couple of the new Democratic leadership.

For those who are culturally unaware the Big Kahuna is the most important person; a chief.

So contrary to your aspersions and mischaracterizations, I am paying all due homage to the Big Kahuna, Ms. Bindeman.

Speaking of casting unwarranted aspersions where are the champions for Ms Grigsby?

Ms Grigsby settled with the insurance company for enough to pay her lawyers. She did not get the apology from the current board that she so hoped would vindicate her fight against unfair hiring practices as exhibited by Jeff Renshaw, George Long, Gene Lolli, and everyone seemingly above and below Ron Malone.

Mr. Malone was most likely the victim of all of the misdeeds of those who were his nominal employees and boss. They probably did not want to bother Mr. Malone with anything as trivial as denying a perfectly competent woman a job in his high school.

Makes one wonder why nobody bothered to confer with their boss, Mr Malone, before they headed down this path that cost the district wasted time, energy, and money.

And why would Mr. Malone deny this poor woman who has been through so much a formal apology from the board of education that he now controls?

And who went down to represent the board at settlement time?

Wasn't it Mr. Malone? Probably to explain why Ms Grigsby's apology would not be forthcoming. Mostly because some unkind reflections upon his countenance and reputation may arise. So sorry for you, but you understand, its for the greater good and your usefulness as a pawn is at an end.

Self interest seems to show its ugly head around those we admire unconditionally.

Most often to the chagrin and discomfort of those who held them so.

You must take into account that there are probably only 12-14 Democrats living in those voting districts. This is Springboro/Warren County. And there are probably 500 Republicans in Mr. Petroni's voting district. Looks like he didn't fare so well.

There are 44 registered Democrats in my precinct. I was honored to receive 24 votes out of the 27 Dems who voted. Still wish more people had exercised their right to vote.

You must take into account that there are large numbers of Union First activists that collectively flock together in Springboro/Warren County politics of forced unionism--in both the Republican and Democratic parties. Real leaders, of whom David Petroni is ONE, never puts collective party interests first to further his own political agenda; regardless of election results David Petroni fairs quite well as the Real Winner, even in the midst of a majority of losers.

Now Kahuna, what are your thoughts on the shabby treatment Ms Grigsby received by those at the high school playing politics with her life and career?

Aren't you wondering why no formal board apology has been brought forward by Mr Malone?

The case has been settled for nearly two months and nary a peep from the media, nor those who loudly championed her cause, has been heard.

It is almost like she was used as a pawn in someone else's game.

But who do you think that would be?

Who, pray tell, did win in these races?
Are you saying by implication that Ms. Bindeman is a Democrat weasel who won her unopposed race with just 24 votes?
How about Ms. Greenburg is she also a Democrat weasel who won her unopposed race with just 11 votes?
Ms. Gregg a Democrat weasel who won her unopposed race with a mere 9 votes?
How about Joe Kirby, he received 12,000 plus votes in his unopposed race, is he also a Republican weasel?
All of the above ran unopposed.
Mr. Petroni in defeat and aside from a continual smearing of his name for two years still outpolled Ms Bindeman, Ms Greenburg, and Ms Gregg in their combined total votes cast.
Your disparaging and inane comments are once again revealed to be the product of ill conceived hatred and the apparent lacking of a logical mind.
Good luck with that combination in the future.
You guys aren't weasels because you ran unopposed; you just got LUCKY. You would have had your asses handed to you. You're weasels because, well, you're weasels.

That's so funny! do you mean like union classroom teacher Molly Wray helping herself to our students' ID's to help promote the school board election of two retired educators, Ron Malone and David Stuckey and one old has been a former school board member, Charles Anderson?

Do you really think our union controlled Board of Education's vote to reward Molly Wray with a supplemental contract as mentor to our students will "squelch" future violations of our students' privacy from being repeated by our union classroom teachers, who feel they are above the rule of the authority of laws that are meant to protect all citizens?

Hey There You Anti-School Politicians with your mouth below your belt! Watch the language on this blog!

Don't you know that you are supposed to follow the role model of Big K and take it to the boardroom in front of the TV cameras! Then, our Springboro School Superintendent will "appoint" you collective minded ones for S-U-R-E to the Superintendent's District Policy Committee! That's the way Board Policy is handled way down low in the Boro in our union controlled Board room, under the Majority Leadership of Charles Anderson, Ron Malone, and David Stuckey.

If the writer of "Anti-school politicians" is a Boro Alumni, don't forget to stop running your mouth long enough to say thank you to a SEA union classroom teacher for instilling in your mind and heart such a great appreciation of "your fellow Americans!"

Mr. Anderson was not "donating", he was buying greater internet presence for his business to enhance his personal wealth.

When BEI donated the use of a much needed trailer to the track teams to properly store the team's equipment, BEI did so by giving up a revenue stream that reduced their personal wealth. They did this because it was the right thing to do and they had the means to accomplish the necessary goal for the track team. No one at BEI is in anyway affiliated with the track team, so BEI had no underlying ulterior motive other than just helping out where they could for the betterment of the program and the community.

The family that runs BEI is not alone, there are many instances of others aiding our children, programs, and schools in many unsung ways that do not garner a shout out from the district for purchasing advertising for the Board of Education's business.

Sorry Charlie, but you took an opportunity to selflessly help others and turned it into an opportunity enhance your personal wealth by bribing children to enhance your web presence.

The last refuge of those with no points left to debate, name calling.

"Let us take a patriot, where we can meet him; and, that we may not flatter ourselves by false appearances, distinguish those marks which are certain, from those which may deceive; for a man may have the external appearance of a patriot, without the constituent qualities; as false coins have often lustre, though they want weight."

Still true these many years after Samuel Johnson penned them.

Can you say Ron Malone?

A man who would tell another person to sell anyone else down the river to enhance his own personal reputation.

For instance our children's future for the sake of a hollow approbation that he knows means nothing.

Lest we forget it was Ron Malone who according to his peers at the Warren County Education Service Center during their audits of Ron's program of studies at the high school noted:

Why the School Should Continue to Address This Key Practice. According to Table 8, only 43 percent of SHS students have completed the HSTW-recommended curriculum (Ohio Core), a 34 percent decrease from 2008. Although interviews indicate that this sharp decrease is the result of changes in the process for coding transcripts, versus changes in curriculum, the decrease is still noteworthy. Only 60 percent of SHS students completed four credits of CP English, a decrease of 33 percent from 2008. There was a five percent drop between 2008 and 2010 with 77 percent of students completing four credits of CP mathematics. Eighty percent completed three credits of CP science, a decrease of 12 percent from 2008. Only 55 percent of SHS students completed at least one concentration, 30 percent below the HSTW goal.

SHS still offers general level classes (Algebra 1A and 1B, physical science, US History, and World History). Thus, not all students experience a college-preparatory curriculum. Documents provided to the TAV Team indicate that contrary to the HSTW philosophy, SHS BELIEVES THAT OFFERING LOW LEVEL CLASSES IS IN THE BEST INTEREST of students. This belief, however, was NOT SUBSTANTIATED BY RESEARCH OR DATA.

Who drove that horse, the compliant, unquestioning school boards of the past who acted on Ron Malone's recommendation during that 2008-2010 period?

Or the author of those recommendations whose personal pursuit of phony awards and approbations cheated untold children, parents, and taxpayers of the education they were promised?
