It's pieces of sh*t like you that cause so many to drop out of school. Treat all the kids like you treat the preppy pieces of crap and they might just have a chance at life. If you put someone down day after day for not having money or nice things in this town. You get the so called under achievers. Geez.

Seems that someone can't stand other people making a living, paying taxes & living their own life. To my knowledge & I know quite a bit, the Swain family has never bothered anyone in this town. They all work hard, never have asked for a hand out or up, they own many buildings that would otherwise sit on main street & be empty shells with no tax revenue coming in. I do agree with the comment about that it looks better with the building next to the high school down & when asked about that comment Mr. Swain agreed-that building was very old & needed to be retired.

I agree with "Fan" Mr. Swain and his family are some of the hardest working people in town. And to Mr. Clifton - I think you are the one that should move out of town. What do you contribute to WF except for smart ass comments.

I'm sorry to tell you but I have a High School diploma as well as a college education and a good paying job. I'm just sticking up for the kids in this town that deserve a chance. It's high school for goodness sakes don't tell me you all set around and talk about tests, homework ect. all the time. Give me a break. Give all the kids a chance at life. Support them instead of always putting them down and see them thrive. On a last note I'm not the kind of person to feel sorry for myself, but kids hold a soft spot in my heart so lay off of them.

I was always told, you are who you hang with, and if you are hanging out and looking like a thug, a slug or with them, then you will....WILL be judged. Get used to it. It happens in the REAL World, no not on MTV. It's called Life!
So many people now blame everyone else except looking in the mirror or being accountable for their own actions. Grow up!

I think I would rather be a low life slug up front instead of a person that tries to act all high society and is a low life slug behind closed doors. So I ask you people, what's the differnce?
