Who Will You Vote For In The Schoolboard Race?

I believe people are really paying attention to the school board race, and we will see changes.  (Aug 23, 2010 | post #17)

How Many Relatives Does Lynn Greene Have Working For The ...

Testify now. I'm hearing ya on this one. I've never seen so many people mad at this school board. What the hell is going on? I mean people are pis*ed. I've heard a dozen people say they wont vote for anybody that's up for re-election on the board. Daggone. Somebody has rocked the boat it looks like. The damn board is out of balance anyway. Usually a 7-3 or 6-4 vote always in favor of whatever Trollinger wants. People say now that Priscilla is done, she's beat. What are you guys and gals hearing out there in the hinterland?  (Aug 8, 2010 | post #17)

Larry Miller

I agree, I think Larry is picking up steam. It's the top 3 vote getters, so winner takes all.  (Aug 8, 2010 | post #39)

Dr. Trollinger Distressed!

Don't attempt to speak for everyone else,just yourself. New subjects don't always mean BETTER subjects,and nothing causes me anxiety,particular ly on here. You don't know how old I am, so you have no idea what "crowd" i come from. When you compare the system of the "sixties " to what we have today, maybe we SHOULD look back to a time when our children were taught the basics. We have children coming out of school today, going to college, and they still can't spell, or even read cursive writing. They will however learn how to say "ni hao".  (Jun 24, 2010 | post #318)

New Technical Magnet High School

You are absolutely right. There is no need to name call, when you are faced with the obvious. This smoke and mirrors approach started in 2007, when the topic about a new high school came up, and was shot down by the commissioners. Then Trollinger starts talking about a new "Technical Career Magnet School" which someone said was supposed to cost around 20 million. Now, we keep hearing about this new magnet school, but the cost has gone right back up to what the original "new" high school was going to cost, around 40 to 45 million dollars. It's lipstick on a pig. Same school, just a different package. There is no doubt, that McDowell Tech could handle tweaking their curriculum, and receive more money from the county in that aspect. I have also said the same thing in here about talking to the candidates for the school board. Just ASK them how they feel on these issues, that's the only way to know.  (Jun 24, 2010 | post #47)

Dr. trollinger is not even considering any other suggestions or alternatives, what does that tell you?  (Jun 22, 2010 | post #40)

what a crock. At least you live up to your handle. What is modern thinking in your book? take your time, it's a simple question. Any improvement comes through change, duh!. it's not a new world dumba*s, it's an old world, and how do the students from McDowell county need to be prepared? by learning the cleaned up and revised version of chinese culture? you're about a doofus right? You are right, he doesn't try to please everyone EXCEPT the MAJORITY on the school board, do you think it's fair that the school board is out of balance?  (Jun 22, 2010 | post #314)

Upcoming School Board Race

Just for sh*ts and giggles, I was looking at school board members and candidates face book sites. I looked at Brackett, Cauthen, sinclair, wood, owenby, and then I stumbled upon the facebook site of "Micah Wheat". remember him? he's the one that Priscilla owenby recruited to run in PG, thinking he would split the vote. trust me, you don't want to miss his facebook site, particularly the music section. He likes rappers like Jay-Z and Lil Wayne, and some other freaky folks. I was particularly interested in a video he has posted of "Ms peachezs" who is doing a rap video about black people frying chicken, I'm not kidding you, go see for yourself. This guy is a freak show in a bowl, but he wants to be a school board member. What the hell was Priscilla thinking? Dayum!!!  (Jun 22, 2010 | post #170)

liver mush festival

I would agree on this one. Look, Freddie needs to concentrate on luring those tourist dollars to Marion. Hundreds of thousands of people pass this city everyday on the interstate. Out of those, we may get what? a 100 to stop for gas on the outskirts of town? All these little local festivals don't do squat for advertising our community to the rest of the country. All these festivals accomplish, is to get people from the city and county to attend. Do you really believe that anybody will drive from surrounding counties or other states to attend these little rinky-dink festivals? hell no. Freddie Killough is an albatross around Steve Littles neck. When the super-walmart opens, we will still be losing people from our downtown area. There will be more shoppes and stuff for businesses to move to, which is closer to the interstate. This city is continually held back by the status quo. I saw a little truck yesterday, with some local boys I recognized, and in the back window, was a full sized novelty license plate that said "Hicksville USA", and the people here actually take pride in that.  (Jun 5, 2010 | post #9)

Upcoming School Board Race

Somebody told me, that Lynn Greene wanted to try this school board "thing" just to test the waters for a possible sheriifs run. Hell, 10 years ago, Lynn Greene was filling IV bags at Baxters, now he's a Lt with the Sheriffs dept in charge of Dudley's "special services" including things like the animal shelter and school resource officers. I don't think he really likes kids, they say he is impatient with a temper problem. People call him arrogant and a know-it-all. I'm not sure what he's up to. I do know, that of all the people I've talked to, they're not voting for him, including people that voted for him before.  (Jun 5, 2010 | post #135)
