First of all they have a wonderful music program at the high school. Numerous students have received scholarships and continued on at college. The music teacher and her husband give a lot of their time helping students.
Secondly dont forget about the 2 positions that were created for local politicals relatives (Cutis McCall's sister in law and Mark Jackson, Centreville Mayor, wife. Those were two totally unnecessary positions.

All the Good residents both white and black I would think would agree with this statement. But the low life crack heads that the McCall's have paid to get them into their positions would not agree. Oh and lets not forget their voter fraud felon team.

The parents should worry that their kids cannot speak proper english and that the school passes them and they can barely read. These kids start schools and do not know their numbers. The parents should be teaching them also and they should be involved in their education, not sports.

Get over the fact that Trucker turned you down and wanted nothing to do with you, you old hoe. Move on, "I didn't do nothing. Call me." You are obsessed with this man and want all your so called friends to team up with you for revenge. Get a job and keep it, Loser. Your sickning and have no pride.
