CHEERS & JEERS: Feb. 11-12, 2012


... to the Greater Clark School Board.

I know a few of you on the board, and with that being said, where did the people go that I knew back when I was coaching baseball and our boys played ball together? What I’m saying is the people I knew back then wanted nothing but the best for our kids.

Just because our kids are out of school now and they have their careers started, don’t stop fighting for quality education leaders like it seems you have with Superintendent Stephen Daeshner.

Why would you want to get rid of a person who was setting things straight around here? Why? Remember, don’t put money first. We are going to have grandkids coming soon. You should be fighting for the kids now and our grandkids to come for quality education and quality education leaders, no matter the cost.

... to Greenville Town Council President Talbotte Richardson for treating the meeting and people of your town as a dictatorship.

Have you been to Clarksville’s previous administration’s meetings to learn how to do what you did? I say previous, because the new administration in Clarksville has made positive changes in how they conduct business now. Congratulations, by the way.

So Talbotte, you should take note and see how many elected officials were replaced in this last election.

Elected officials today really need to wake up and listen to your people who elected you, or Talbotte you soon will be just a memory.

— John Price, Jeffersonville
