Here's another question for you. Is Linda Foster misleading the BOE on important issues? Which camp are the readers of this forum in:
A)She is doing a wonderful job as acting DOS, especially considering the mess she inherited from Edmonds. She is doing her best to improve the school system. or
B)She is simply replacing one crony system with a new one. She is clueless on budget and legal issues. She is part of the original problem and is not helping to change things for the better.

The answer on Linda Foster is both: She is doing a good to excellent job under the circumstances, but she has carried forward some of the old habits that date back to the Priesthood. But she is filling a void well, and saving the taxpayers money by doing her own job and Acting DOS at the same time.

For those of you who know LF she is any body's (pardon the words) dog that will hunt with her. She is like Edmonds she talks out of both sides of her mouth. She tells the board members what they want to hear, even though each board member might get a different answer. She can shift and take care of the cronies by simply producing a graph. I feel that once a new director is appointed then LF and the school system will be much better off. I just pray that the school board will take the time to research and find the right director. The children has suffered enough. Please pray that god will take care of this situation.

Seems she had a good mentor all those years. Maybe she is acting out of "habit." I agree with you...if she can produce a graph or dance a double talk song, she feels she is in good stead with the Board.

Many wonder if she might not be the quiet leader of the cronies since the large cronie clan originally hatched from South when they all worked there years ago.

Some wonder from where the other cronie eggs were hatched and why we now have two cronie factions.

Maybe we can have a sporting event one day and let them battle it out resulting in only One clutch of cronies. Someone needs to destroy that nest before the next eggs hatch.

Maybe we should send a search crew into the trees around the CO and at South to collect and destroy eggs and fledgling hatchings or cronies before they get new jobs.

I believe that you have hit the nail on the head. Linda has always had cronies that followed her. She was so close to Edmonds that he protected her and her followers. The reason for the two groups of cronies... You have the LF and the CE cronies that are in battle for control of the school system and right now the LF cronies are wining. I have had people at the central office tell me that there is a power struggle going on right now where there is a move to get 4 board members against MC so he cannot get rid or move the wrong cronies. I understand there are 3 members banding together with a forth fixing to come on board. God help us, here we go again.....

Oh God, please NO!!!!
Please don't let it be so!
Those of us working in the system cannot take much more of this crap.
It's a shame that one must pick a faction to join in order to receive fair treatment.
Why can't all these people just do their jobs of educating young people and forget about all this power-grabbing nonsense?

to She Learned: Holy Moley, I hope you are not right. We have SF, MA and possibly CW....who would make it a foursome? Oh NO!!! Not Mikey H?

He represents my district and if he has changed his support, then my district folks need to speak with him ASAP.

Some may oppose what Mike C has done from time to time, but he has not ONCE failed to support educators and the students. He is their best support link and improved education is his GOAL.

We need a new festival in the county and call it "get rid of cronie day." I am sick and tired of favoritism where less qualified people are promoted above truly qualified professionals.

I still say we need to search the trees for nests and do away with 'cronie eggs and fledglings' before they gain flight.

This MAJOR business in our county, the school system, has little or nothing to do with education it seems.....instead it's all about promoting knuckle heads into $70K positions.

We need to offer retirement to a lot of the folks in our system so that morale will improve for those who LOVE to teach can get back to the business at hand.

Haven't seen you on here for a while. Hope all is well with you.

I agree.....it seems some folks are dragging a tree branch in the dirt and telling teachers and county folks to choose sides.

That is not what education is all about. I pray the selection committee spends days researching and interviewing applicants for DOS so that the final applicant possesses the courage to "climb trees and remove cronie eggs" besides getting down to the business of hard core education.

Otherwise, our entire school year will be like the last couple weeks when the black birds moved in and messed on our cars. There is only so much of those bird droppings a community can take.

Has things gotten better or are they just covered up? What about the high school teacher that had to be sent home for mental problems? Do anyone know what happened. There were cronies when Edmonds was in power and there are still cronies in the system taking the money from our children. Things have not gotten better, if any thing things are worse. Now there are two sets of cronies instead of one. LF needs to be replaced with someone else before the system get in worse shape that it already is in. Surely there is someone inside the school system that can take the place of the director and put everyone in their place, even if the place is out the door.

For crying out loud, get out of the Mike C kool aid and start questioning some of his motives.

I honestly question anyone's motivation to run for public office. WHY?
They subject themselves to unwarranted personal attacks from anyone who disagrees with their position and ideas.
Mike and his family have been attacked personally.

This is seldom about any of the policies that he supports. Seems that no one can come up with rational arguments against spending wisely in the education system.

It was just told on the noontime news that it was a trainer not a coach that got in trouble due to improper behavior. LF and MR had released a statement Friday saying they new of no incident where improper behavior occurried at FCHS. It is now apparent that cover ups continue at FCHS. Sheriff Fuller had to comment on the bus wreck, the assault last year and the improper behavior this year at FCHS. No school official would come forth with the information. CE taught them well, say noting, do nothing and the incident will go away. I hope that our school board once they find out what happened (i'm sure thy didn't find out from the school system) and do something about the trust issue at FCHS.

Actually, MR & LF let the cat out of the bag when they took a piece of backfence gossip and issued a press release that both signed, denying that such a incident had occured. If they had kept their mouths shut,instead of trying to hang something on the radio station, maybe they could have kept this latest embarrassment swept neatly under the rug. And don't say Charlie taught them well. Charles Edmonds would never so anything that stupid!

1. Cunningham is a JOKE! Really, it must have been a slow election day for him to get voted into office.
2. Michelle Stovall is a joke too! She is nothing but a busy body.
The others seem to be a little better.

OK: Edmunds is gone. Are you going to immediately accuse the new Director of being one of the local "cronies" too?

There are some in this county that just need to get a life! Things are not bad in this system. At least not any worse than any other rural school system in this state. Edmunds is gone, get over it and move on!

I hope they do get Red because he won't put up with all your gossip! He will tell you exactly what you can do with your lies. lol

Weren't you recalled last week?

It would be a clever idea for you to learn how to spell the name of our former DOS before you make a nut of yourself again.

I think Mr. Roberts and I would get along just fine because neither of us care to put up with cronies.......or gossip, for that matter. From what I know of Mr. Roberts, he tells it like it is and doesn't mince words.

Were you friends with him when he previously served this system? or did he send you off packing into your little nut jar when you acted up as a student? Is that why you gained respect for him? I think he is a good man and furthermore, I respect him for his military service. How many others in this system can say they served on the battle field? The man is OWED respect. He has mine.
