    Privileged White Politics And Walton County

    Saying the papers are not allowed is a little different as in they are being censored, then not having a story. Papers? Can we see your papers? And why use their ink or paper when you have posted it here for free? And have the info. Anyone that reads this thread has the info and can pull the...

    Posts like this one are why I take online fodder on any subject with a hefty dose of salt. I stood in the back of the media room almost turning blue, holding my breath, waiting to hear the shoe drop on which member you were alluding to during your speech. I have been the only press reporting...

    Walton County School Board Meeting in SOuth Walton 4/15 at 5pm

    And let's not forget that the county does not end in DeFuniak. Paxton and Freeport schools are part of the district as well. What I have seen is people don't show up til there is a big vote or issue. By that time most plans have been worked out to deal with whatever the issue is, and does not...

    New tag designs. What do you think?

    I'm also concerned about our tax collectors office if I read this correctly, Andy. I need to do more research, and call Mrs. Skipper and see what she has to say, but, I've been happy with their service to me, personally, and right now with what little I know, this doesn't quite pass the sniff...

    New tag designs. What do you think?

    I want to write an article and maybe even an editorial on this issue next week. Seems all this time we've been losing funds from cameras that can't read the raised design. The contract, if approved, according to the article I have attached will go to a private company as well. Is it just me or...

    Florida is a fire at will state. But, I believe and others will know more about this than me, most teachers as long as they abide by their contract serve the length of their contract. Instead of being fired, I believe they call it not having your contract renewed in the new school year.

    WCSD Superintendent Race

    Sometimes, in my experience, HR directors or staff members deal with health care, absences, vacation time, sick leave and such where paper work is concerned. When I worked for a private- non-profit many moons ago, if you had any of those items, you took it to HR. Supervisors also would go to HR...

    Does Anderson do the firing or does the board have to approve a dismissal?

    Miss Watson, I am very sorry for what you have gone through. Why do you think Trisha has not had any consequences for running against Mrs. Anderson or has something happened with her I am not aware of?

    JP, I'm not aware of a lot of history of the new member. With the new member coming on, do you think the shift of power will change on the board or stay the same?

    That would make for some very interesting news as well, JP! :)

    I agree, IT, the timing and the fact no HR person was in the room are not positive for me personally. I'm going to try to get the skinny on all the employees that were moved that day and report what both sides are willing to speak on record about. I've worked in many different areas, offices...

    Who decides the renewal? The SB or Anderson? And I know, I know what everyone says about the board rubber stamping request, but it's an honest question. I think you could probably tie donations by groups to someone they might want something from, from most of the political candidates. People...

    scanner no sheriff reception

    I think from past meetings I covered way back in the day, the public not being privy to the movements of the Police at that time and now Sheriff's department were part of the reason for the change. And let me clarify when I say public. At a DFS City Hall meeting when Mike Adkinson was chief, it...

    IT, please clarify. There was someone there when it all went down, but no witnesses. Just trying to understand how the information was shared if no one was there, but they were there. And I agree with having someone in the room. An HR person or other witness should have been present for a...

    School Board agenda link

    I included that quote in my last board article, J.P. I don't know if he can top his "horse hockey" comment at another meeting, though. :clap: I do believe the board is considering changing the meeting to another day or in the afternoon. If parents have a preference, now might be the time to let...

    School Board agenda link

    Too bad no one, even prior employees or unhappy parents, are willing to speak due to this fear. Maybe someone should write a book. If it sells they don't have to work there. I really do wish more parents or residents, if employees are too frightened, would step-up and voice their dissatisfaction...

    Homeowner's Insurance

    I live in DeFunn and had the joy of searching for a new homeowners policy this month. Ended up going with Citizens as it was actually almost 300 cheaper than my last policy with another agency that decided to not renew me. I added it up. I have paid out almost $32,000 in the last 15 years on my...

    I'm happy to report anything of substance, Meggiemom. And when I say substance, I mean anything that people are willing to "go on record" with. I need people who are willing to speak with me and be quoted on the record. Same for school board meetings. I can only quote those that speak during the...

    I couldn't imagine the stress that contract work brings to employees unless that is what they want. What would be necessary to change the position of superintendent from elected to hired? County charter? I'm not sure myself how well it would work, but I am always open to new lines of thought and...
