I wonder how long before this whole thread is taken down. When you see a good post cut and paste it here and send a copy to friends. A group of us parents are getting sick of the bunch of idiots running our school. It's time to expose them for the fools they are.
Here is a great one.

New High School Principal

Once again you will hear real news here on TOPIX long before you read the censored, King Bill Approved, watered down version in the local rag sheet.
My opinion is he is a very nice guy who lacked the support of the School Board to take Towns County out of the mess it was in. He did not create the mess. Dr. Dick was a idiot who only wanted to build a special Education shrine to his brother. The current little lady came from a failing system and picked right up where she left off here. The problems in the Towns County School system date back to the days when King Bill had the official title of Superintendent. Today he is like the great and powerful OZ who works behind the curtain. But make no mistake about it. He still calls the shots, The current line up of ignorant school Board members follow along like sheep. As long as they can keep hiring their family members all is well in their mind.
If they promote the little smart ass family friend the Superintendent hired, who lacked experience and common sense, then things might get worse. Although many of you are saying things could not get worse, believe me if that simpleton gets control all bets are off.
My vote goes to Dr. Darren Berrong. He has demonstrated enough knowledge and ambition to obtain a PhD. Which is more than the VP and Superintendent have done. He will be the next Superintendent so why not let him run the High School the next two years while little Bo Peep finishes her contract.
The problem is not all in the Principals office but someone needs to take the fall for the ignorance in the Superintendents office and School Board. Elvis is about to leave the building.
P.S. Little Miss Golden Child and her mommy spent the whole day in the Guidance Counselors office Thursday. There must have been some children's grade that needed to be adjusted to make sure of a top three finish. Maybe she will finish fourth and we will have a new award. I say we call it the Mommy award. Each year the Mommy with the most juice in the System gets their kid a five minute speech and plaque.

Yo Dumbo, you moron, still can't get a handle on those capitalizations, eh? You're a real dick, that thing you are always fantacizing about, and "a idiot." Write much, Dipstick?

question wrote

My question to the paper is if the principal didn't go back to school until he was 34 then how is he near retirement. If that be the case he looks good to be in his late 60's. Nice investigative reporting!!
I have two questions for the paper.
Why do I have to read the news here on TOPIX first?
Why didn't you give us the Bio and qualifications for the "New Principal" in your front page story. Perhaps the lack of experience, education, qualification and failure on the part of the School Board to properly advertise the position, was the reason. Or perhaps the link between our superintendent and the Principals family would make for a good story.
Perhaps this question could be posed to the Superintendent, Just because you lacked the qualifications, ability, experience and education necessary to lead Towns County schools, do you feel it was a prudent decision to hire a Principal to lead our High School who lacks those same professional traits and skills? Are you attempting to surround yourself with people with less education and experience than yourself?

This post will not last long

No professional educator would think of coming to Towns County. It's the end of the line when they do, meaning they've failed so many times and their reputation is so tarnished they can't get a job anywhere else.

Of course the local system is no better - like this "announcement" (from their web-site):

"Job Opportunities at Towns County Schools

TCS Certified Vacancies

Towns County Schools is accepting applications for a highly qualified Science educator professionally certified in Georgia for employment for the 2013-2014 school year. Candidates with experience in coaching softball are preferred. Questions regarding coaching duties may be directed to Jonathan Gibson, Athletic Director, at jgibson@townscountyschools.org .

Certified vacancies are also posted on www.teachgeorgia.org ...."

Are they actually looking for a science teacher, or a softball coach who can pretend to teach science? From the way it's worded, you'd think they didn't care about the science qualifications nearly as much as the softball.

Proving once that the second post still obtains. How 'bout adressing something new, like King Bill or the dirt slide?
Wake Up

Dawsonville, GA

Wake up Towns County. Your school is about to be turned over to people who lack the education, experience, training and ambition to properly run it. The new Principal and Vice Principal was appointed because they are best friends with the Superintendent and one of her Administrative parasites. Over the next year you will see some of the best and most qualified teachers leave the School system because of this move. Towns County School needs proven leaders. Not a kid looking for some on the job training and a unqualified, incompetent relative and friend of some administrative staff.

All the time your School Board will remain silent. Your children's education and future are at stake.

That would be nice if he would exit along with many others. The most productive thing Towns County Schools has done was name a new high school principal. All of you that criticize the incoming principal are the ones that refuse to follow rules. Things will finally be done in a manner that is productive and makes sense. Buckle up Towns County get used to the rules of the real world, cooperate, you can learn a thing or two!
There is very little I can be taught by a 25 year old kid just out of school. There is very little I can be taught by someone appointed to a position by his mommy's friend. There is very little I can be taught by someone who has never learned how to use authority. There is very little I can learn from someone who would be teaching a class rather than running a school in a normal community.
You and your Superintendent friend will be gone in 18 months. Buckle up...son there are no rules when it comes to protecting our children.

How did the current regime work for you? Think about it with a clear mind....change is good. If it is not working...we must fix it. House cleaning time in our school system is long over due.

Nobody is happy with the current regime, except the current regime. The school system is broken. Nobody will argue that with you. There needs to be a 30% reduction in administration staff and those funds spent on more and better teachers.
That will not happen. Putting an inexperienced kid in the captains chair is simply another foolish mistake. Read the Op-Ed.

You people crack me up. You elect the same morons year after year. They keep allowing your County to slip further into the toilet. Then when someone points out the problems, causes, people responsible and even some solutions and ALL YOU CAN DO IS MAKE FUN OF THE GRAMMER AND SPELLING. I think the point went over your heads.
Your school system sucks. That's not a secret. Its full of nepotism and cronyism. The test scores are not good. Things like the Super hiring a family friend right out of college to be the new Principal. That's just dumb. What is worse is, the School board does nothing to stop it. You just re-elected a school Board member who was on the board for many years. He did nothing good then and was force out by term limits. Then you people put him back in office. I think his daughter was involved in the dirty picture emails that were prayed over by the Superintendent rather than being fired for and you wonder why people are poking fun at you.
The Lake is polluted from years of being used as a sewage settling pond and other things. That's a fact.
Your Commissioner has done nothing to help pull the local economy out of the toilet. He bought a pig in a poke for a park from friends and paid three times too much. The thing is sliding down the mountain. If you don't believe it drive by and look.
The GMF is a bad joke. I had heard the story about the funds being stolen from the Tourism board years before it came out in the story.
The tax assessors office has most of the property in Towns County 50% over today's actual value. If you don't believe it look at your assessment and call a realtor and ask them if it will sell for that.
I admit I read Hellawassee.com several times. It was very funny up until the last chapter. I think if you read the last chapter you will see it is not meant to be funny. I think it's meant to help improve the County through exposing the problems and people who are to blame. I think we all know the local paper will not do their job and expose anything. Again this is pointed out in the Story.
Like the header on the first page says. If this place sounds like home you need to move or work to make the place better. Maybe if enough voters read it they will "do the right thing" as they keep calling for in the story.
I think I know several of the people involved. I think I know the local attorney who stopped them from publishing the videos, pictures and emails they claim to have. I really don't care if I am correct in my assumptions of whom they are. I just hope they succeed in their mission. We all have a lot at stake.
