Opoib, I hear that somebody is looking for you on the missed connections link on craigslist. I guess you missed your romantic partner out on the Parkway.

Joe, I hear there is a very nice wake going on at Hamtopns funeral home you could crash. I bet the family would love your critique on how they are running it.
Or better yet Joe.. You could be out setting up some funding for cemetery maintenance?

Does anyone know any details about what was actually wrong with the water? I drank city water while this was going on.

I heard that anyone drinking the water could possibly become patient one in the new zombie apocalypse :)

I like how the school blames the city for not informing them. It was in all the news sites the day before yet the school doesn't know.

I think the administration didn't want to make the day up so they brought all the students in to school and then immediately released them.

Are we making up this day?

Or maybe they were misinformed about the repair time? And I'm sure they released the students out of concern for student safety. I know where i work they told us not to wash our hands. Only WHS and Hardin Park were released, as they are the only schools served by the town of Boone.

Am I the only person who thinks it's a little suspicious that the Superintendent's wife was selected as the new school psychologist? I didn't even see an ad placed in the paper.

no your not the only one thinking this is a lil strange. and whats more the schools are complaining that there budget is so tight that they cant afford to buy the tools needed to teach our kids yet they can pay her 50,000 a year for a job we dont need in our schools. Whats next will he apoint his sun minister of watauga county schools and have him go around and pray for our children? I think we need to take the power to create positions away from the school board and place it back into the hands of the parents of the children that attend these schools. They are just trying to be like the big government adn screw us out of every possible penny they can before they leave office

Hasn't all the superintendent's wives been hired in the school system and board members families also been hired in the system.
I think we should elect board members that are not a part of the system that has failed so many of our children for the last 30 years. Many children have done well while others are labeled to get good scores on test to look good for the school system. I think that children should be taught in the schools and not labeled as failures. We wander why we have the drug problems.We might look at the schools and attitudes that have been demostrated by so many of our educators.

they may have been hired into the school system and thats fine. What I have a problem with is the superintendent creating a position without anyone elses approvial for his wife. Ant then paying her nearly $50,000 of the schools money that is already so tight that they cant afford to give the kids the tools they need for a proper education.

There have been positions created for board members wives and other personal's family members. It is all in who you know in Watauga Co.
One question I wish someone would answer for me is "why do our county elect so many people that have been in our school system so many years? Do we not need new people and new ideas to run our school system, not people that couldn't wait to retire from their jobs with the schools?

How about we look at the attitudes that have been demonstrated by the parents of these kids. The school system doesn't raise them. The kids who are sucessful are the ones with parents who are active in their education.If parents would support their children maybe we wouldn't need more school psycologist.

We have many children in our county and else where in this country that do not have parents that have the best intrest of their children in mind. These children depend on teachers and community for education and moral support. I found the attitude of many of our teachers and administrators dispicaple about some of these children. As a taxpayer and a person that did not always work on the same schedule as the school schedule, I found the school system attitude about working people very disturbing. The people that works outside the schools pays taxes for the education system to teach their children for 6hr. 5 day a week. When I heard teachers saying that parents used them for babysitters I was outraged. I never used the school system as babysitters and my worst nightmare was the education of my children and grandchildren in the Watauga Co school system.
