Comments: Superfly, yes. Aren't they also the lawyers for the city? Don't forget Hensler wants EOM property for patio homes. Will lawyers, realtors, bankers, builders, and others make money off this deal?

Comments: Reading the bankruptcy of MIDCORS ex director I see he not only over pays for sofas but sponges of his daughter to cosign for his car loan.
Can it get any lower than a dad using his daughter for money? Yep it sure can because the same group of people are suing taxpayers because they don't get a hand out from county government. Seems to me MIDCOR ought to give up managing economic development for the city when their director can't even manage his own money and the only way they function is on handouts from taxpayers.
When you think you've heard all the low life sleazy things these people do along comes another story that proves you wrong. Gives a whole new meaning to daddy's girl.

Submitted by Name: Bad press
Comments: I can't believe how some complain about the forum being bad for the community because we talk about the truth when half of city politicians shares all the drug busts on their Facebook pages. Then you got JCIDC saying they lost a deal because of bad press and that bad press turned out to be the local paper writing about the city's lies on hatcher hill. All I know is come election time seems like every single candidate wants their name on this site to help em get elected.

Comments: Yes, I've thought about that also, but I believe it's also related to the mega school plan. Joyce has been involved with the schools in different capacities for many years and seems to support the mega school plan and appears to like to be in control. Think of all of the dedicated teachers and administrators that they have gotten rid of in the past few years. People that truly care about the students and the community. If they did not support the referendum or the ultimate plan, they needed to be gone! The downfall of MCS started many years ago under Patterson. He is the one that spent $millions on the remodel of LM that we are still paying for to this day. He moved 6th grade to MJHS and started closing schools. I believe that there are people behind the scenes that are putting personal greed instead of what is in our children's and the community's best interest and ruining what was once a great school system. Now, enter Bolinger whom I believe is a scapegoat. Don't miss the forest for the trees! She will eventually leave this community. I believe that KJ will then become superintendent and the greedy ones will continue to profit. They have now voted to close EOM knowing that Anderson is not big enough to hold all of the students. They are going to spend a few $million to try to update it. Shortly they will say that Anderson is not big enough and there is no room to expand, so we need a new, bigger school. They will need a huge referendum which will devastate this community. They have no idea how many here struggle. They will need to buy property because they've sold EOM and gotten rid of the many schools that they once had. Think of all of the money there will be to be made as they buy property and build a new facility. Follow the money! How many students and teachers have left the system in recent years? Instead of making MCS great, they whine and blame others for the decline. To take the schools back, the community needs to clean house and not just get rid of Bolinger IMO.

Comments: Madison graduate-you are making up things that aren't true. Under Yancy the high school got better. And everyone knows the reason bullying goes on is because Bollinger doesnt let teachers kick kids out. The bullies are there because they can get away with it and Bollinger doesnt want her enrollment numbers to drop or the numbers on the states bullying report to jump up. So dont blame Yancy for Bollinger and dont lie.

Comments: With all due respect, Principal Yancey had been in charge of a failing high school for 7+ years. At some point he had to be accountable. Of course the kids liked him, alcohol and drug abuse is widespread throughout the high school but nobody ever got in trouble because they were good athletes or kids of Madison's elite. Bullying is also rampant throughout the school. They claim zero tolerance but my child was bullied all 4 years and nothing was done to the bullies. Again, they were athletes,druggies and some of Madison's elites doing the bullying. It's funny how their drug testing is supposed to be random but my kids were each tested 3 times during their 4-years while the know drug users were never tested. Everyone knows who they are but Principal Yancey would never question one of Madison's elite.
Face it, Yancey was hired 7-years ago for a job he was not qualified to do. What experience did he bring to the table. Working at Mt. Washington, give me a break.

Comments: I googled Ginger and all I can say is if she's looking for a new job no wonder she hasn't gotten one. I've seen better rap sheets for street walkers. There was a public records complaint from Robin Henderson and you can see how she tries to block the public information. There's all the protest videos and tons of stuff that just shows off how horrible she is. Hopefully the states investigation doesn't take years to do so this town can be rid of her since the school board won't do whats right. . I'm voting out Lacour and Glesing and hoping to see Larry Henry's name on the ballot for school board. I think people learned their lesson about voting for buddies instead of people who really care and will do what's right. No offense to teachers but I've not seen how putting teachers on the board is helping. We need people who care about the schools and teachers and kids but also who aren't afraid to make tough decisions in public. It's time we learned to call a spade a spade in these meetings and quit all this back door stuff that led to things like Yancy getting transferred but really being fired so Ginger and the 3 can move in a gal pal to principal. We've got all kinds of bad things happening because we pick people we like it know or instead of the best people for the job. I say fire Ginger Studebaker Bolinger

Submitted by Name: Debt Relief From: Madison
Comments: I agree. It is very disappointing when I see someone that makes $115,000/year plus and has for years, why he would declare bankruptcy and stick others with his debts. He could pay this off if he wanted to. He chooses not to pay it because he doesn't want to live within his means. Very sad. The boy has no character/pride but then again look who his close friends are. They all have an elitist attitude.
Perhaps we should start a go fund me page for him? Any donors?
