I have heard Truxler does not want the gym named after Coach Watson because he thinks it should be named after himself or Hoss Jones. Those two have run that school for years. Notice I will not refer to either of them as Coach or Mr. because I do not think either of them deserve it. They do not have the morals or respect that Coach Watson earned for himself. You never hear any one say a bad thing about Coach Watson, unlike Jones and Truxler. When will the board wake up and take over that school? No let's keep letting Truxler run it so he can keep running off good teachers and students!!!

Are you on every discussion board in the LawCo area stating the same thing. if you had an ounce of integrity you would go to the source and ask questions wrather than post nonsense on topix. Let me ask. Do you think that Coach Bobby Watson is more deserving after a 20 yr career at HHS than say Lida Tinker, Charlotte Myers, Nova Sue Dobbs, or any other teacher that put in 35+ yrs of service to the children of this oommunity? How many lives did these people touch? not sayin he doesnt deserve a memorial in the new gym but naming buildings after people ONLY causes hard feelings.

I think it should be named after Mr. Vance who was the most courageous board member Hoxie ever had. At least a historic marker should be placed in the middle of the campus recognizing him and others for their intergration stand in the 1950s.

I think educationally it should be names Vance Gym.
From a sports stand point it should be named Watson-Jones Complex. Watson is Ok however.

i went to hoxie all my school years. ive never heard of any vance? bobby c coached kids in the area for years. baseball basketball and track..people all over the northeast arkansas knows him , like they did robert hicks,, a gym would be a good show of the school to show thanks to the man.. hoss jones to my knowledge never coached at hoxie , unless it was a pee wee coach. for of u tired of truxler.. get u bunch of signatures of hoxie voters that want him gone, then take to the board. if they vote against firing him. then remember them on the next election. the citizens of the school district should have the final say.

91 Puke, Hoxie has been around for over a hundred years. The Vances reigned during the 50's. Hoxie wouldn't be here today had it not been for them and a lot of others. You are just too yong to kno hat you are talking about. Hicks and Watson did a lot. If you are going to name the gym then name it after Waston, a good guy and a sports leader. But just remember that we built it out of tax payer money. Perhaps "Taxpayer Gym" would be a better name and teach the kids more lessons.

Correct me if I am wrong, but dont the tax payers pay for the gym. I dont think any public school building should be named after anyone.

Yes. They do. They either got a grant from the state of tax payer money or they payed for it with your local tax money. Do you think Hoxie school has brought in enough revenue for a multi-million dollar project like this?

Myers dobbs and tinker have not done any more than a lot of other teachers that have retired or currently work there. Coach Watson touched a lot of lives outside the school..

No they are not. Not every gym or football field are named after someone. If it was paid with taxpayers dollars it wasn't from the three involved in this underhanded game. They live in walnut ridge school district and Jonesboro. The ones that are stirring and name calling should be ashamed of themselves. js

There is a division about naming the gym occurrng in the community. Let it stand as Hoxie High School gym. Too much opposition to name it at this time. Subject needs to be put to rest until the proper time and forum can be established to resolve.

Nothing is ever going to be resolved in Hoxie as long as that little self annointed elite faction in the Hoxie Methodist Chrurch is running things. Have you not noticed what crap they are always stirring and what glory seekers they are. I don't have to name them. You already know who they are. Let Mr. Truxler and the Board run the school and do their job. That little Methodist bunch is nothing but noise and trouble. They hurt their own Chruch as well as the community. If they can't have their way they won't play. But they will gossip to the end of time. Don't let this half dozen or so people ruin a good thing in Hoxie. We have a wonderful new gym for our children and community. Be thankful.
