Do you know what our schoolboard just did? They gave all of the administration a raise!!!! How can this be when all of the other schools are on the news nightly struggling with all of the cuts they are having to make? Did we get a big bag of money that the schoolboard didn't tell anyone about? You know they are going to make cuts, how do they justify giving raises to Goins and the rest of his croanies? We should be outraged! Our kids are going to end up on the losing end while that fat cat gets a new contract and a raise. How do you tell the new teachers and some of the aides and support staff they have been let go, but give the administration a raise. What is wrong with our schoolboard in the midst of a finacial mess giving raises? I know one thing, none of them will get my vote again, not that they care.

We are in financial trouble....and they get a raise. How can they show their faces in public. I guess our taxes are going to go up AGAIN to pay for this? Thanks Mary,George,Bill,Jerry,David,a nd all you other wonderful board members for this. Of course I think most of you have enough money so as not to worry about it. Let's see George has a son who is a teacher and a daughter who is an aide....hmmm. David has a wife who is a teacher,aunt,neice,uncle.....h mmmm. Think they will vote for any pay cuts or layoffs.NOT.I bet the layoffs are done with the aides and other staff that are not important. I hope you people don't cut any of the progams for our kids....if you do people need to throw rotten apples at you!

Everyone is entitled to a cost of living raise. If you can't afford them, you can't afford to have school. Shut it down and go somewhere else.

No one wants to talk about it. Don't want to step on no ones toes. Looks like there all related anyway. I thought maybe Shawn might be for the little guy, guess not. Looks like Moreland and Rhoades and Eader, all of them with money are giving the big raises. Vote them out next time!

I'VE JUST HEARD ABOUT THE TEACHER BEING FIRED AND I HOPE SHE GOT HER LICKS IN WITH WHOMEVER DECIDED TO DO IT. I THOUGHT NO ONE COULD BE FIRED UNLESS THEY REALLY DID SOMETHING OUTRAGEOUSLY OBSCENE OR MEAN. WE KEPT A PRINCIPAL WHO EVERYONE KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOING AND BELIEVED HIS STORIES OF GOING TO SERVICE. WHAT A LAUGH!!!THIS MUST BE THE WORST SCHOOL BOARD I HAVE HEARD OF AND ALL OF THE PRESIDENT'S MEN. WHY DO WE NEED THREE TO RUN THE SCHOOL. IF AT HIS SALARY HE CAN'T HANDLE THE JOB ALONE YOU ALL NEED TO FIND SOMEONE WHO CAN. WAY BACK WHEN, GOEBEL WAS SUPERINTENTANT AND PRINCIPAL AND DID A TERRIFIC JOB. HE STILL TO THIS DAY REMEMBERS HIS STUDENTS NAMES. I DOUBT IF GOINS KNOWS ANYONE OTHER THAN HIS CRONIES. EVERYBODY BETTER GET ON THEIR HORSE AND RIDE AND GET RID OF THESE PEOPLE. REMEMBER, THEY'RE ONLY PEOPLE WHO PUT THEIR PANTS ON THE SAME WAY WE DO!!!!!!

A lot of us have been saying the same thing for a long time. No one really cares as long as it doesn't affect them. I hope that the people who have been underhanded have to answer for what they have done, maybe someday. I would rather know what someone is truly like than to have them pretend to be something else and use their religion as a shield. A hypocrite is as bad as it gets!!!

More than one teacher got the axe at the high school and there is another board meeting tonight. WHAT IS THIS BOARD THINKING TAKING TAKING MONEY FROM PEOPLE WHO NEED IT AND GIVING IT TO PEOPLE WHO DON'T??? Who will get the axe tonight? Certainly not the people who just got a good raise at the expense of the little people!! Can a school board and the rest of the administration, especially that make over a hundred grand be impeached? Maybe all the unions should stick together and go out on strike to support these poor people!!!!!

Word on the street is there are going to be several cuts at tonight's board meeting. Be interesting to see who and what programs get axed. Gonna make it easy to decide who to vote for next school board election though. To those of you on the board now, enjoy it. Your actions of the past couple years and the remainder of your term WILL NOT be forgotten! Enjoy your power trips while they last.

Too little,too late. They've done what they have wanted for years and no one has voted them out or stopped them. It's like a little club with Goins as the president. Remeber WF, you reap what you sow!!!

My question to our Board of Education would be
"How to you give raises to the adminiatration at one SPECIAL BOARD MEETING and then at the REGULAR board meeting make cuts and lay people off?" According to the Southern, George Karoski and Jerry Eader where not even at the meeting last night.

I knew they would get around cutting any of the teachers kids. Hopkins, Summers and how many more retained there positions! What a big bunch of you know what. Kendra Murphy is a wonderful teacher that the kids all love. My child could not say enough good things about her. There were kids she actually saved from quitting school.While on the other hand we have a young teacher who could not teach her way out of a paper bag, but she is related so no cut for her. Kendra has been a tenured teacher for how long? Talk about manipulative bunch of no goods. I heard this all had to do with a confrontation she had with one of Goins' croanies and now she is gone. People in this town need to wake up and quit letting outsiders come in and run our schools. Will she retain her salary? You know she is a single parent.

Where was Karoski and Eader? With such important decissions shouldn't all of the board been present? You have 2 no and 3 yes, could have been different with the other 2 there. Kind of uneven odds on such important issues.

I was at the school board meeting when they got rid of Kendra.They were determined to do it and wouldn't listen to reason. Stevens didn't like Kendra and was out to get her.Please remember at election time that Bill Hand, Mary Moreland, and the Rhoads woman voted to get rid of Kendra. They didn't even have the decency to act sorry. Most of the public is not aware of this website. Everyone needs to let their friends know how the board gave Goins, Stevens, and Rains raises and then gave Kendra the axe. Kendra has done more for kids than the board,Goins,Stevens and Rains will ever do. Also remember who voted against Kendra when you go out to eat, shop, or need car repairs. Kendra served our school system for 24 years. She donated hundreds or possibly thousands of hours of her own time to sew, cook, council, and console our kids. The thanks she got was a slap in the face. Please call and write the school board and Goins and Stevens.
