Meep 9 months ago on Newton, state scores low on high school math tests

17% pass rate in Newton on Math One when even the mediocre state has 29%? You can put lipstick all over that pig Ms. Fuhrey all you want and it won't look pretty. 59% pass rates on Math 2 and 19% on Coord Alg? This is horrible awful shameful all of those words. The maxed out millage rate and the Hee Haw School Board are taking every penny they can of yours and giving you back this type of math achievement? VOTE THEM OUT.

Meep 9 months ago on BOC approves rollback millage

Message to Baxter employees: Buy your homes in another county but never in Newton County you will be forced to deal with crooked elected officials and will have to pay for private schools unless you want a worthless diploma from one of the worst systems in the state when cross referenced with the maxed out millage rate.

Meep 9 months ago on Citizen staffers bring home eight AP awards

I love the Newton Citizen. They don't smear people like the rag across town. They don't sensationalize stories they just print the facts. They don't try to run people down. They don't have to constantly retract things they print like another paper. I think it is great that the LaQuanda Brown Carpenter won Mrs. Floyd an award the Citizen stayed on top of the real story there all the way through without doing gutter journalism and inserting themselves into the melee. Very happy to purchase and read and share the good news of the Newton Citizen. Quality is obviously a goal at this paper. I always find integrity in their stories and use the other paper across town to line my cat pans. I will never forgive that other paper for the way they ran down a teenager a while back.

Meep 9 months ago on Citizens' group to rally against budget

Ellis is a huge disappointment I will work to get him out off the next election cycle. Cut money to the Chamber of Commerce. Three employees left this year for a reason. Figure it out by cutting their purse strings. Expose the complaints listed in the presentment to the Grand Jury during the first half of 2012 about the workmen's mechanics liens on the NSP homes and the minority contractor - start by asking were federal funds used lawfully and watch the BOC roach or two scatter it will surely shut down a tax pusher on the BOC or more.

Meep 9 months, 2 weeks ago on The Newton Citizen Poll for July 7, 2013

Shameful to the core and people wonder why lawmakers are fed up, with public education. Cannot make this stuff up.

Meep 9 months, 2 weeks ago on STEM institute planned for part of old Newton High; School board to decide on fate of remainder of building

This NCCA Harlem Shake video is disturbing for many reasons, safety, damage to taxpayer property, no teaching going on and it signals bad leadership at NCCA. Sad to see this video on the world wide web and apparently endorsed by administrators. Who is running the BOE?
