Comments: You think someone that makes an honest living as a paperboy at a job that pays almost nothing and picks cans to make up the difference is going to join the ranks of Madison's elite poster children? You gotta be slothful, greedy, rich and dishonest to represent Madison.

Comments: 14 Jefferson County Bicentennial torch bearers - not surprised by the those who were chosen, mostly the same folks who are chosen for EVERYTHING. You know who wasn't chosen? Vernon Morris the dedicated and friendly man who delivers the Madison paper and has for years, rain or shine. Everyone downtown knows Vernon. Downtown residents and workers submitted a nomination form for Vernon along with a petition that had 100 signatures on it - but he wasn't chosen. Vernon is Madison's greatest ambassador. I am very disappointed in the committee who did the choosing.

Comments: Madison Schools are in trouble, that is a correct statement. Why? All the blame cannot be placed on the admins. Some of the board members were elected not only one but twice, by the taxpayers/parents. Two others were elected as well and are related, one has been involved with the schools for decades and many are in bed with Bolinger. The majority (not all) of the School Board has failed and the blame needs to be shared. Teachers/employees are scared of this Administration and will not voice their concerns or thoughts as they could be fired. The administration has shut the door on anyone being able to speak openly at each meeting. This is totally unacceptable. Nothing will change until the taxpayers stand together and vote out 4 of the current board members and demand Administrative changes, and if that means buying out contracts then so be it..

Comments: I watched the video this morning of the MCS Board meeting from last night. One thing is obvious, Bolinger, Joyce Imel and good old Carl were trying to push things through in a hurry. Gotta do it now, we don't need to talk with parents anymore. They want a petition-remonstrance process so they can see who is for and against a bond. Of course this means they can put the screws to teachers, employees and their families. Heck, they tried to do that back in the referendum.
Why would they rush? Two school board seats are up in november, Joyce Imel and Lee Ann Imel. Will say Lee Ann voted against moving 5th grade to Junior High and also the petition-remonstrance. If you add two new school board members with Rob Kring, you've got a chance to put the reigns on Bolinger and maybe even just pay her off and get her out the door. That would help make the school system a heck of a lot better.
They are going to push, push, push (they being Bolinger, Joyce Imel and good old Carl)Oh, and of course the Envision gaggle is working with those three. As if the GO8 doesn't already control a lot at MCS with Bolinger, Hadley and Schutte.

Comments: "Old Teacher"..as a parent of children who will be a part of the move to the Junior High, we have no choice but to make this work. The problem is that during the parent informational meetings I attended, overwhelmingly, parents DID NOT want this move to take place.
IMO...by voting/approving to move the 5th grade to the Jr. High was nothing short of a slap to face of Madison's parents. I can only hope Imel, Glesing and LeCour major decision as school board members. Once there time is up....they need to step aside.
