Shouldn't the rest of the Skiatook School Board follow suit and resign also? Were they too timid to speak up...didn't care...didn't know or played follow the leader and is that what they always did???? Skiatook deserves better. I say start over with fresh faces!

Don't question authority, they damn sure don't know what they are talking about.

His resignation was the only path he could follow....The grand jury appropriately pressured Cooper, they expect the rest of the community to pressure the others. The grand jury has set the tone and the course, it is time Skiatook for you to complete your obligation and duty....the other board members must step aside.

Kenny Cooper + cronyism = Skiatook Schools Loss of Half a Million. All of those trips and rubbing elbows illustrate the principal that business and pleasure don't mix. Of course, Johnson was going to schmooze Cooper and he basked in it and cast a blind eye. Ignorance of the law is no excuse.

Has anyone heard about the same law firm that the grand jury told Skiatook to get rid of is being questioned about things that went on in Prue? Just wondering how many schools this law firm has?

What do you mean about beneficial advice? Wonder if other district are checking them out? I hope our school is. Do you have any idea what is going on in Jenks?

We are having the same problem at our school. What was the name of the firm, I suspect it is going to be the same as our school and they are a seedy bunch and high dollar. Join our topix on Cave Springs at zip 74960, Stilwell, Okla. It is a nightmare.
