I think you may have tried them(drugs) because you were doing something other than your school work! Try proof reading before posting and maybe you won't sound so stupid! Enough can't be done or said in our schools or community to keep our kids off drugs! There will always be some kids that are stupid enough to try drugs but the fight on drugs starts at home and how you are raised and the school, community, and our PD are there for backup support! Schools are tough enough on drugs------can't be too tough!

Nor are they, apparently, doing a good job of teaching sentence structure, capitalization, grammar or spelling!!!!

My child goes to school here and she can spell. He was only making a statement and was downed for his spelling and such...and I wasnt talking to you as much as I was talkin got MT, who happens to not like this town from her previous posts in other forums. Maybe I should say the PD? I've lurked for a while and decided to join. I attended school here also, want to check my spelling? I'm just saying lighten up on people and their spelling, gosh.

In reality, there is not much more the school can do. The same problem is with ANY school.

I like Jacksboro just don't like everyone that lives there and that's the way it is in any town! I am sure there are people who don't like me and that's fine--------it's what makes the world go round! I don't like James Forbus, he's not what makes Jacksboro and I am not trying to get people not to like him, I am just stating my opinion! It's just not a good one! I am glad he has friends------I have friends--------just not the same ones!

I have no situation and I don't mind being laughed at. I thought you were laughing at the whole Mr. Rhone thing and I find nothing funny about it. I was wrong in making any sort of assumption.

Why are you all blaming this on the school. I always thought that it was the parent that raised a child not the school district!!! But hey I guess this is what can be expected out of a society that relies on T.V. as a babysitter. By the way I grew up and went to school in Jacksboro and have never tried any drugs.

Sadly the people DO make a town what it is .The actions of the towns people is what attracts new people to ANY town.Maybe Jacksboro shouldn't be so cheap and PAY the officers better ,maybe people like you should just move on and find a different town than Jacksboro,then the town won't have to worry about pleaseing ONLY you huh .As you are the ONLY one complaining.

Not the only one complaining, just the only one stating my opinions on this forum! There are lots of people who agree with me. We are just in a different circle of friends!
