I have heard from different individuals that the residents at the shelter who are employed are asked to pay rent and that the residents who are not employed are asked to turn over their food stamp cards to the shelter, is that the way a shelter is supposed to operate?
Why is it that my post in opposition of Mr. Corley was not posted? I guess for the same reason that this paper never posts anything negative about Eastside High School or anything positive about Alcovy or Newton.
I guess if Alcovy is the place to get illegal drugs and Newton is the bar, Eastside must be the pharmacy????? My kids tell me you can get any kind of prescription drug on the market there!!!
I am curious to know, how many votes did Ms.Lindsey lose because of the lawsuit at Alcovy? She had my vote and the votes of the majority of my family until that lawsuit was filed.
I have two children who are currently students at Alcovy and another who will be freshmen next year, we have been extremely pleased with the education and the staff at the school. Our children make excellent grades, they are active in sports and other school activities. I have also been to the school on many occasions and I have never seen anything out of the ordinary, my children have told us about some misbehavior but I believe the responsibility of our kids behavior falls on us as parents not on the school administration. If you teach your children how to behave and to respect others then maybe you wouldn't have a problem.
The things I remember include: 1) After an Alcovy player was tackled, an Eastside player proceeded to stand up and begin kicking that downed Alcovy player. 2) After being tackled by an Alcovy player, a Eastside player got up and wanted to start a fight. 3) An Alcovy player was hurt and on the ground for over 5 minutes and not one Eastside player took a knee on that field. And FYI, my son is a player for EASTSIDE and it took everything we had for my husband and myself not to walk out and snatch our son off of that field.
The score board at Sharp stadium may have reflected a win for Eastside on Friday night but anyone who was in attendance will certainly say there was a lot more to that story. The horrible and unsportsmanlike behavior exhibited by the Eastside players left many of us speechless. I find it almost comical that our "economically advantaged" school allows their players to act in such a manner. I now know what people mean when they say "money can't buy class". So congratulations to Alcovy High School, the scoreboard may have shown that you lost but you did it with class and dignity. Your coaches and parents should be proud of all of you, Eastside's coach and parents, not so much!
