Just more Mason County political crap. Make one person mad and life becomes miserable whether you are guilty or not. No wonder why Gallia County gets all of the better businesses. There are more important issues than some woman buying a GED. Can't wait to hear the next episode of our soap opera.

and why should she be able to buy a GED when others go and take the classes and take the test? Just like Gov buying his daughter a College Degree. It's not a soap opera. It's criminal and the person should get canned and fined. It maybe will teach others not to try it.

Bull crap! That lady should have never lost her jobs until the verdict was in!!!!!!! I still believe in America that U are innocent until proven GUILTY!! Get over yourself Mason Co. Tereasa is outspoken and it is obvious that she rubbed someone the wrong way.How much of a fine does she have to pay?? The board has already publicly hummiliated her,took her lively Hood.. Watch out board memebers and who ever is behind this she may come back @ you wit your own back door adventures!!Please Explain to the public how she had acess to passing out GED's?? And if it was such a big deal was has it not been brought out before?? Everyone in this lil town knows who she peed off.. Sounds like a cat fight.. Leave the lady alone until the Lawyers hash it out..

This is really quite pathetic. Regardless of this woman's innocence or guilt, the prospect of someone actually paying someone to ensure a passing GED score is just... disgusting. Get a tutor. Take the pre-GED classes seriously. The people at Garnet Career Center in Charleston are more than willing to help anyone who needs help with any subject material that may be presented on the GED test. Instead of taking the easy way out, make an effort and get a REAL passing score you can be proud of - at least you earned it, right?

you are absolutely correct!! it's so freakin' dirty how they did her!!! total outrage! i for one am behind tereasa 100%. i've been hurt by political backstabing myself and cost me my job as well. if they want you gone, they'll find a way. and all it takes could be one wrong word to the wrong person and that's it. in the old days of organized crime people would just wind up in the ohio river, now they ruin your life rather than end it. this whole area is still eat up with organized crime and big money calling the shots.

You are speaking nothing but the truth! I would vote for her also. Next time put her in as a write in candidate. It would be the best damn sheriff this hell hole of a town has seen in a long time.

I don't know who's guilty or not. What I do know is that when you read the post from the fair citizens of PP, you can understand why buying or selling a GED or receiving a Diploma you did Not Earn is a Crime.

Your humorous comment ironically illustrates what I already KNOW to be true. This dedicated teacher is INNOCENT.
EDUCATION, helping people in this area to improve their quality of life is, BY ANY MEASURE, far more important to this person than any amount of MONEY. If the consequences weren't so tragic, the accusation would be laughable, because it is so ABSURD. We've all read enough slanderous nonsense on Topix to know that it doesn't take much for the "good ole boy network" to act in desperation, to react in malicious ways against any threat, real or imagined, toward their comfortable and CORRUPT status quo.

This really did happen.She tested a person that was close to me and I was there when the money exchanged hands.Also this person that took the test got a 100%. The sad part of it all is that the person that took the test cough hardly read and write.
