The Record Speaks the True History of this One Man of BLAH BLAH BLAH Symbolism, Ron Malone, who has been a SHS Union Shop manager; but now is just a bitter old man, out for revenge against doing what's right for our school children; with no substance whatsoever to offer; and only 2nd place most popular board member-elect.
Hasn't been a great fall this "insanely" tragic since Humpty-Dumpty had a great fall! So Sad!

The Wheels On The Bus go Round and Round....
BUT, Wednesday manifesto ONLY goes BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH in the direction of Denial, just spin, spin, spin in the bleak tunnel vision of Malone's status quo failed practices ...
and we all know what Truth that Proves... Obviously, Wednesday manifesto suffers severely, struggling from brain drain disorder, not only on Wednesday, but all the other days, too. So Sad!

Based on the True History of a Man who has been SHS principal for the PAST thirteen year, Ron Malone, through official documents
written by third party observers....
Mr. Malone ran this high school like a union shop, making up classes with scant demand to ensure employment for those whose skills were not in demand. This tactic ROBBED RESOURCES from areas of greater need in the district. Those who suffered the most were the gifted and those in need of early intervention.
Truer words were never spoken:
Look At the PAST....
"D" grade on Gifted Intervention AND
"C" grade on the lowest 20% in achievement from State.
.... in the local newspaper dated November 14, 2013, board member-elect, Ron Malone, sound
delusional as he states one of his goals while
working on the board is "to make sure students'
educational needs are met, such as special needs and advanced students, in a way that is fiscally responsible."
Excuse Me, Mr. Malone, but you were offered opportunity to use your professional educational abilities to affect change, raising the bar for all students and TEACHERS in our school district
last March, 2012! And in protest of "doing MORE
for our all our students and TEACHERS" did YOU not throw a community wide temper tantrum, leading our students into the high school auditorium to PROTEST the authority of the Board of Education members to "OFFER YOU THIS OPPORTUNITY?"
Shame on you, Ron Malone! Now, you are boasting in the local newspaper that YOU have control of the THREE voices in the board room, come January 2014, and that YOU are grateful to the "community"
that they have trust in "himself, Anderson and Stuckey, who ran on the same platform."
Shame on you, Ron Malone! Based on your TRUE HISTORY of "performance" as the former principal
of Springboro High School, YOU threw away the TRUST, Moral Authority, and Influence that you held in OUR community... when you "ridiculed" the
Board of Education members last March 2012....
for respecting YOUR 41 years of PAST educational experience and trusting that YOU would accept the challenge of UTILIZING YOUR ABILITY to affect needed changes to raise the bar above YOUR status quo "business as usual" leadership skills...
Shame on you, Ron Malone! Based on TRUE HISTORY,
you CHOSE to throw away the TRUST that our Board of Education members (and your own Professional Peers) and YOU refused to "stand up for OUR students first" and then launched a bitter, mean-spirited VOTE FOR REVENGE campaign against our Students' first best interest and Board of Education's authority to do what's right for our schools and community.
NOW, as board member-elect, Malone said in the local newspaper that the "board" should not micro-manage Staff, but provide "guidance."
Shame on you, Ron Malone, for REFUSING to accept the GUIDANCE from your professional superiors and our elected Board of Education members, whose responsibility to the TAXPAYERS is to PROVIDE guidance to "prompt" high school principals to work together with ALL school district leaders, doing what's right for ALL our students; and stop running our Springboro High School like a union shop, making up classes with scant demand to ensure employment for union teachers whose skills were not in demand.
Education is all about money and power; and who has control of both! Stay Alert, Voters! We can't just invest in Malone's old outdated practices of status quo; We must stay the course and bring Malone, Stuckey, and Anderson "on board" with our current board's "reform minded VISION for our children's 21st century education WITH Quality Teachers in every classroom.

It's a shame that good space on this blog cannot be used to convey facts and information on issues like education in our classrooms,
quality teachers in our classrooms, and fair and balanced taxation of our community members, without the mindless filibustering of "No debate means No choice."
Let's look on the brighter side; perhaps if NDMNC will stay with us on this blog long enough, they too will catch sight of our broader reform minded vision of our children's 21st century education, with quality classroom teachers, putting our Students First while maintaining fiscal integrity, within the framework of our Children's First Budget! Wouldn't that be Great!!
Here's a great website that helps parents learn more about our
children's classroom teachers! Read it and pass it on!
This is just the teacher I was interested in, but you can put anyone in the search:

The weather is absolutely perfect for skiing. And most definately, you are direly in need of time away from your overworked computer keyboard. Hey! Why not give Kelly Kohls a call? Maybe Kelly can be your skiing partner! After all, very soon...(just like you)... Kelly Kohls is going to have quite a bit of extra spare time to burn.
#29682 Dec 12, 2013
Why don't you fools stay on topic? Why cant' you pass a levy after 6 years?
#29683 Dec 12, 2013
In the direction of being repetitive (which seems to be what happens here):
The 1796 Treaty with Tripoli states that the United States was "not in any sense founded on the Christian religion" (see the image on the right). This was not an idle statement meant to satisfy muslims-- they believed it and meant it. This treaty was written under the presidency of George Washington and signed under the presidency of John Adams.
Who were the Founding Fathers? American historian Richard B. Morris, in his 1973 book Seven Who Shaped Our Destiny: The Founding Fathers as Revolutionaries, identified the following seven figures as the "key" Founding Fathers:
Of these, only John Jay can be considered an orthodox Christian. As Congress's Secretary for Foreign Affairs, he argued (unsuccessfully) for a prohibition forbidding Catholics from holding office. On October 12, 1816, Jay wrote, "Providence has given to our people the choice of their rulers, and it is the duty, as well as the privilege and interest, of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers." It is John Jay that the modern Christians have in mind when they talk about the Founding Fathers. Luckily for the rest of us, and all freedom-loving Americans, he was not in the majority.

You're kidding, right? This thread would have petered out and died years ago if the topic of discussion had been limited to passage or failure of Springboro's school levys.
#29685 Dec 12, 2013
why ? because most of us have wised up to the school union Nazis.

Fools Rush In... with Red Ribbon Symbolism, emotionally blackmailing for increased taxes, not because New levies are needed; but just because the "time has now come" because it has been so-o-o- long since the pro-levy addicted ones have experienced Victory over common sense voters.
Common sense voters have NO FEAR, treading through the years
with NO NEW TAXES needed, putting Students first... in the direction of sustainability!
"Where the board's at right now is wanting the highest academic achievement and fiscal responsibility," Petrey said, "That's what I stand for." (DDN, August 2012)
With every step, our current board is PROVING that this district
--with its record of excellence-- is sustainable with an even lower tax burden! We are meeting and exceeding state mandates as well as local expectations; building a technology backbone, investing in computers, curriculum, buses, and buildings. Most
important, our current board and school district leaders are being HONEST about what is needed through 2017! This is REFORM at the
local level, and this IS working together toward sustainability!

...in the direction of Beliefs Worth Living,
Keeping Our Springboro Schools and Community
Both SAFE and AFFORDABLE!
Look at Today and the Future! We Support the Progress Made in The Past Two Years!
WE BELIEVE over taxation of the taxpayers is wrong!
WE BELIEVE in supporting the amount of necessary taxation required to do the job correctly.
WE BELIEVE that excess tax money in any government body tends to inspire creative ways to spend that money.
WE BELIEVE transparency, from budgeting to policy formulation to meetings, leads to good governance in all levels of government.
WE BELIEVE in order to deliver the highest level of education we must raise the bar well past the state minimums and strive to
challenge our children, parents, and staff to reach higher. We can and must do better, our children's future depends on our actions today.
WE BELIEVE that allocating resources from areas of less demand to areas of greater demand is one common sense approach to resolving
needs in our schools. Federal and state mandates many preclude some reallocation, but we are still left with a sizable amount to influence.
WE BELIEVE that in order to take advantage of the higher level classes at the high school, more children must be put on that track at earlier
grade levels. We support Mr. Petrey's move towards emphasis on more development in the earliest grade levels. While not all children will eventually end in a calculus class in high school, we can certainly better prepare them all for post graduate success. And that benefits everyone.
WE BELIEVE that the future belongs to technology. It is absolutely essential that we recognize technology not as a means to an end, but as a
conduit through which knowledge flows. Much like the wires that flow to our houses bringing electricity, our technology investments are being
made to ensure the future flow of knowledge to our children.
WE BELIEVE that leveraging school fees, services, personnel decisions, safety, or infrastructure maintenance to threaten families in order
to influence regular or levy elections is wrong.
WE BELIEVE, as Mr. Petrey stated in the November 14, 2013 issue of Springboro Star Press, expressing Thanks to the Community for Passing
This district has come a long way from the divisiveness of past levy campaigns, and we did so by listening to many voices and many perspectives.
We hope you all will stay informed and involved. As you know, great things happen in our schools each and every day. They happen because
we work together--students, families and parents, teachers and staff, and our community -- on behalf of our students. These are truly community schools, and that was reflected in the voters' approval of Issue 14.
#29688 Dec 12, 2013
WE BELIEVE the only one who believes your BS is you.
#29689 Dec 12, 2013
We did. Why don't you pay attention FOOL.
#29690 Dec 13, 2013
"The More You Know" protests too much in favor of re-instating (in the boardroom)
Malone's failed practices of status quo tunnel vision leadership. Obviously, you are not even
convinced that Malone's winning of only second place in his own popularity contest is a
victory for s-u-r-e.
WE BELIEVE that YOU are the only one who believes in your MSA insane arrogance.
#29691 Dec 13, 2013
Our recent history of FIVE failed NEW money levies has challenged our district, but with our staff and teachers, we have met that challenge. With date-driven decisions and careful budgeting, we have reallocated resources to do MORE for our kids without asking our community for higher taxes.
The budget through 2017 includes busing for all grades and a program to spend more than $2.1 million on new buses; more than $2 million in textbooks and curriculum adoption; over $3.7 million in capital needs and deferred maintenance; and more than $1.1 million in new
technology; as well as our current staff salaries and benefits. these needs are met in the five-year forecast even with the lower renewal levy. How is this possible?
With every step, we are proving that this district--with its record of excellence--is sustainable with an even lower tax burden. We are meeting and exceeding state mandates as well as local expectations. We are building a technology backbone, investing in computers, curriculum, buses and buildings. Most important, we are being honest about what is needed through 2017. This is reform at the local level, and this is working together toward
- adopted from a blog post by Springboro Board of Education Member, David Petroni
Overwhelming support for the progress made by our current board in the past two years
is now PROVEN record by the overwhelming approval by voters of our November 5th renewal levy that saves taxpayers $6.5 million! Special Thanks to our current board members, Kelly Kohls, Jim Rigano, David Petroni, Don Miller, and Wendy Kull for
working together, putting Students First, while maintaining fiscal integrity!
"As you know, great things happen in our schools each and every day. They happen because we work together--students, families and parents, teachers and staff, and our community on behalf of our students. These are truly community schools, and that was reflected in the voters' approval of Issue 14. Again, thank you."
-Todd Petrey, Superintendent, comments made in thanks for passing levy renewal,
in the November 14, 2013 issue of The Springboro Star Press.

Right, My vote counted for 5,000 + people last election.
#29693 Dec 13, 2013
Your one Vote for Malone's Rude Arrogance and Revenge counted for just your
One Voice, One Vote. Elections come and go; even insane popularity loses its
glow; but the good influence of fair and balanced, common sense leadership is
here to stay in Springboro schools, and year after year, just grows and grows!
Thank Goodness "We the People" live in a Democracy,(not a dictatorship where ONE
voice takes it all) and in a Democracy, ALL citizens including our Minority Citizens, have equal representation, according to the law.
Welcome Aboard "No debate means No choice!" Let's Work Together doing what's
right for our schools and community! Looking forward to "Let Freedom Ring in the
New Year - 2014! It's going to be a great year for All students, school employees,
AND community residents!
