I think it is time to do away with school taxes for seniors. The current budget news on our school system makes me worry that these clowns have no idea what they are doing. What say you board chair? Six million dollars from reserves?


Henrycounselor 2 years, 1 month ago on School board to meet for combined meeting

Why are people so upset about the second counselor position at the career academy? Everyone is talking about that and the other expected personnel recommendations for Tuesday. I'm more concerned that the school system is taking out six million dollars in reserves. I guess Gary Matthews is the new six million dollar man. I was told nothing has been mentioned about 6 million dollars in the budget meetings up to now so what is this all about?

Your right the school system did not harass them but they knew if there was a big enough deal made and them playing the I was harassed card the board would eventually get tired of it and do what they wanted.

@ontoday your right they will find out what he is really like. Ha. I'm sure it won't take long. I wonder how quick they can call bs because if anyone knows anything about any of those two is lying. Goodness. I have an idea that his visionary sense won't last long because his last visionary outlook turned newton into a circus. We will see.

The thing is pebbles is the NCSS didnt have to let this keep going. It got completly out of hand. However it just goes to show where the power is and isn't but I think now they all see through all of this.


Henrycounselor 2 years, 7 months ago on Jeff Meadors: The end of innocence

That is a good question do we know the warning signs? Well we would like to think we do but it is unfortunate that we in fact don't and that is the scary part. Another thing that raises concern is that as time passes and more things happen the more panicked we get. Do we have enough in place to help our children feel safe? The answer is no we do not and that is not healthy for children to worry that much. A lot of people asked is it gun control we need, or is it more mental health professional. Both as I see it. Being in the mental health profession it is very complicated but we need more of both, however I'm not saying take away the right to bare arms, but what I am saying is look a little deeper into giving a gun permit before handing it out like a fishing license.

This is too much and something needs to be done. Something more in the policies to make it a little more safe. Until something is done it will just continue. It is very sad to see any childs name across the screen and no matter what a childs age it is hard to lose them. Let's hope that something can be done to help keep our kids feel safe and secure at school. I think that if enough people got together in the right places to make this happen it could happen but until talk becomes action we will remain in the same situation.
