I think it has a lot to do with the Lauderdale Bd of Ed. Just look at the Asst. principal thing. The principal at Brooks wanted the woman, but other bd. members wanted someone else. Valentine just sat there. Things never change or haven't in 30 yrs. I'm hoping the right ppl get elected this time.
I guess I don't get it. I don't see how the assistant principal thing with Valentine is anywhere near connected to or similar to the predator getting hired in the 80s. No, politics has not changed in 30 years and I agree changes need to come for many reasons, but to bring up Allen Wilson to try to build an arguement about the board for something that happened when maybe several of the members now were not on the board then - I don't get the math, but whatever.
Valentine was the sole problem with the assistant principal. Valentine needs to go for many reasons, but bringing up Allen Wilson actually only shows support for Valentine because Valentine was part of the main thrust to get him out of there. Careful like I said what you try to throw in there as your arguement -- if many people see it like I do -- it might only backfire.
However, Valentine is nothing like Hot Linville or even Walker or Fulmer. And if I'm not mistaken -- Linville was the super back in the 80s. Politics doesn't ever change. Oh they say they are change -- but like we see with Obama -- we only trade one evil for another in the political scheme of things.
I think the mentioning of Alan Wilson in a story of Brooks employees that have been charged with crimes recently makes quite a bit of sense. However the jump from our local school employees and officials to the President is quite a stretch....just my opinion.
