Newton Citizen Poll for May 4, 2014

“Now that it is official we will lose our only good counselor at NCCA, we ask Fuhrey not to dump an Alcovy counselor on us. Hey, Fuhrey, you cannot even get your people to the meeting this week to answer questions on the Ombudsman thing. From the audience you looked quite silly calling out (employees) who weren’t present, so try to get the counseling thing right, OK? You don’t appear on your game.”

——

“So Fuhrey dragged the lame Covington News in this week to scream at them about their Wednesday paper where they made up their own test scores. Good enough, but what is she going to do about constantly failing high schools and the inequities bordering on discrimination of Theme School vs. all others? When will we learn how much property damage was done at the nighttime street ball mess at Fairview? Taxpayers should raise hell about this and no answers on accountability for this.”

——

“I get so sick of whining teachers who work 190 days of the year while most of us work 261 and have part-time work. They get vacations in blocks of full weeks in February, April, October, November and two weeks in December and most of June and July. Shut up already!”

——

“Wimps wail about honest school data reports. If you don’t like it, don’t read it or make the data better. Why attack the truth? More awful than a board member reporting the truth are the majority of our school board who can’t speak proper English and tweet during official meetings and act rude about barns at NCCA. Comedy hour at the BOE.”

——

“What happened to the web guy/instructional coach Peter Card at Fairview? Did his disappearance have to do with the night ballgame crime? No one will tell us.”

Editor’s Note: Peter Card turned in his letter of resignation April 22 after he was placed on administrative leave with pay on April 14. Superintendent Samantha Fuhrey wrote Card that the leave was due to his conduct on April 4 and that he would be notified of his continued employment with the school system on or before Friday, April 25.

“Just read the article about the two sisters involved in a ruckus at McDonald’s and couldn’t help but wonder if these were the same two I saw about a week ago in the Kroger in Newton Plaza proudly wearing red shirts with the word “B---H” across the front. The two I saw were in the company of an older woman who I assumed was their mother, and I couldn’t believe my eyes or fathom why anyone, especially a female, would want to wear something like that? When I got home, I told the wife. … These two and their guardian are truly sick and the law will be dealing with them again since they have no respect for themselves or authority, fighting the police at 15. My God!”

“Thank you Newton County Sheriff’s Office detectives for catching the burglars that hit our neighborhood.”
