School Closings

I'm truly sorry that you are losing a school but i have to say something about your comment about being screwed on this end of the county--In 1989 five high schools were consolidated and TW reamined untouched. You have no idea how this felt These were high schools not elementary schools. People in these five communities were as upset as you or more. I keep hearing western end people talk about how bad theyve been treated and that's not true. Ask people who went to keokee, dryden, jonesville, pennington and flatwoods how bad TW was treated when consolidation first came to lee county. You've held on a lot longer than most. Im not saying that I wished this happen to you but the entire county has been affected by consolidation, not just you.  (Jul 17, 2012 | post #22)

Now were gonna talk about his personality...?! Really? Maybe it's time for a more serious mature person to take over the job! There's been a lot of crap that has gone on in the past that's no laughing matter. It's funny you say pennington parents hate Martin--I haven't heard one Penn. parent say anything bad about him!! And I wonder just how many people you have heard are going to pv or gc.  (Jul 10, 2012 | post #42)

Church

I agree that a preacher doesn't have to go to Bible college but I wouldn't say the schools are cults! About bible college, did Jesus say that was a requirement for preaching the gospel?! What year was the first bible college established? And what on earth did people do before that? Sadly the person who thinks a preacher has to be college educated is missing the whole point--thats worldly not spiritual. Have you ever heard a true God called preacher? There aren't many. I'm not saying that a God called preacher can't or shouldn't goto bible college either. For the person looking for a church home pray about it. Visit churches until you find one where the Word is preached and your spirit tells you this is where you need to be.  (Jul 10, 2012 | post #62)

A football coach isn't a teacher in terms of teaching school Yeah many coaches are teachers but it ain't necessary. PLEASE get over it!'  (Jul 10, 2012 | post #40)

A couple things amaze me: 1. How mean people are when their identity is hidden. I think of a definition of character: doing the right thing when no one is looking. Your true character is showing. No one knows who you are behind this screen, so your real character is showing as you trash people. God knows!! Terry might not be college-educated, but I guarantee he wouldn't stoop to the level many have on this site. If I had a kid, I'd rather have Terry work with him than some of you college graduates! 2. I can't believe people are still bringing up the Jonesville Versus Pennington crap. If the New coach was from Jonesville, people would somehow find fault with that. Please grow up and think of the kids, the LEE HIGH kids, not the jville kids, the Penn. Kids etc! I know Terry could care less whether the kids come from Jonesville, Pennington, st. Charles, Dryden or Keokee! I hope Terry doesn't feel bad about the stuff that's on topix. Really, some people are having a hard time coming up with things to say bad about him! I wish the only bad thing that someone could say about me is that I am a hard worker, no job is beneath me, or that I don't have a degree!!  (May 28, 2012 | post #43)

applaud"? Do you mean "appalled "?! Your screen name is "employee, " I suppose that means of the school system. I hope you are not a teacher!! This is sort of ironic that you are ranting about the new coach not being college educated. It just goes to show you that a degree doesn't make you smart, just like not having a degree doesn't mean you are unintelligent!  (May 2, 2012 | post #114)

That's REALLY nice of you! This shows your character and intelligence. Yeah, let's wish some bad stuff on high school boys who just want to play a sport they love. NICE.  (May 2, 2012 | post #112)

I fail to see the problem with being a bus driver! It's an honest job. There are several intelligent people who drive buses; in fact, several teachers drive. Let's talk about the bums who don't work, or even worse, those who sell drugs to the children of Lee County! Oh, I forgot this is a grudge from someone who didn't get the LHS coaching job or a close family member or friend of the person who didn't get the job! I guess if that's all you can say about this man, he must be a pretty good fellow!!  (May 2, 2012 | post #111)

School Board Meeting

Our school board did not break any rules. Please refer to VHSL handbook section 27-2-2. There are exceptions to the rule that coaches must be certified teachers. Although having a degree is a good thing; it is not everything. People with degrees are not necessarily the smartest or the most talented. It definitely does not ensure integrity. There are times that degrees are absolutely imperative, but I do not feel this is the case. TM is a fine Christian man. He is hard-working and KNOWS football. He has proven himself at PMS with a stellar record and gained the respect of faculty, staff, parents and players. Ask anyone who truly knows him or has worked with him or for him. It is so easy to sit anonymously behind a computer screen and say mean things about people. It was REALLY ugly to make a statement about his business. Yes, he drives a bus, and yes, he mows, and yes, he pushes snow...Is there any shame in this? I think not!! He does very well with his business, and I wish more people had his work ethic! There were other good people who applied, but the board apparently thinks TM will do the best job. Let's give him a chance and cheer on the Lee High boys. Hopefully, they will have a great season!  (Feb 17, 2012 | post #21)
