Im not a woman Old Gran. And yes, MTO was correct, it was pretty sexist remark. I never said I was in possession of them! And how do you know it's a rumor Old Gran, did you hear it at your retired breakfast club too?

"they are usually started by an angry-at-the-whole-world jealous woman."

That's a pretty sexist remark?

Show us the pictures.....I never believe rumors....they are usually started by an angry-at-the-whole-world jealous woman. So funny and also, of course, entertaining. So show us the pictures.

Old gran- are pictures fact enough for you? As 01skykar pointed out, it will all come out in the end! More people have first hand knowledge of this than most think. It's a popular place to go for Warrenites. Does the possibility exist that Brandon and others were seen there together and just maybe a few pics were snapped with 1 of those darn cell phones?!!! Hmmmm. Maybe. Just maybe.

OLDGRAN- ALL of it will come out in the end.I HOPE. All it is going take is for people of warren county to stand up for their kids! Call these people out. Employees of the district can only do so much. I could drop a few names but I will not. All you have to do is start asking, people will talk.

As George Carlin said: That's why we don't post the Ten Commandments in courts (and govt offices) - it creates a hostile work environment.

Thank you to Brazil, MTO and everyone else who has supported this letter. From statements made by a board member on Monday night, it is clear that he does not like the heat they are receiving. Later he made comments to our new board member about him not reading his emails from concerned citizens. It is obvious that he doesn't understand and that is disappointing. It was also shocking to hear another board member mention to our new member that executive sessions are the best part and thats where the real decisions are made. Wow. Executive sessions are for DISCUSSION only, decisions MUST be made in public. Our board has lost its way and it is up to the people to help them find it or the door.

Brazil, the private facebook group is one that I didn't open but I been a member of since the begining. We have had this page for a few years and it was started when we organized in the central attendance are wearing green shirts. It is obviously no longer about green shirts and is about education. I often post on it to inform people of things in our district or education issues in general. Others also post on it, it is for all the members of the site to use. It was started private and has too many people for the setting to be changed. Once on it, you can add friends too. I thought offering that site would be a good outlet for those who wanted to discuss education. It is not a site that is solely meant to bash people, it is to expose the problems or cheer for the good stuff. When I saw, "Mayberry's" post about closing their site, I figured I would offer this alternative but I ask that people keep the purpose of the site in mind and not expect it to be a "Mayberry"

As I have said before when it comes time for the various union contracts to be negotiated the Unions should take the stance of "not one step backwards". I'll most probably end up paying more in taxes if they do that but they owe this Administration and Board, nothing, zero, zilch. They provided givebacks and the Board stabbed them in the back with regard to how they handled the reimbursements and other issues with the Superintendent as well as the prespective bonuses paid out to the top executives.

Additionally, just wait…I’m sure South Street was abruptly closed in order for the district to have a reason to furlough more teachers.

This school district disgusts me! The administration (and the board that approved it) that took a combined $10,000 a month pay raise should be embarrassed to show their faces in public! Every teacher, aide, janitor, and secretary in this district has taken on extra work due to furloughs! Teachers have been involuntarily transferred all over the place…and for many their pay freeze actually became a pay cut due to the increase in gas to get to their transferred school. Special Education teachers are teaching regular education classes in addition to case managing special education students, math teachers are teaching social studies classes in addition to math, high school teachers have 7 different preps so students have some sort of course offerings to choose from etc. DISGUSTING!

Nicole - Went to the Mayberry site. Why the privacy to your facebook site? Why not have it open to the public in general?

Mrs. Peterson seems to have summed up the problem: Not quite criminal, but certainly unsavory. In my experience, this is what happens when boards, which are supposed to provide oversight, get too chummy with administrators they hire. They get hung up on how best to extricate the individual, forgetting that their primary responsibility is not to the superintendent, but to the taxpayers.
