OK folks. Now that you know some of the important things that were not discussed at the July 24, 2017 School Board meeting, let’s talk about the meeting itself. Please remain seated as you read the rest of this article as you are going to get mad. And your blood pressure is liable to go up. That is what usually happens when good people finally get to hear the truth about what is going on in Cleveland County. And we have some selected video clips of the meeting.

When the meeting is called to order, you notice Board Member Kathy Falls is MIA. That is probably a good thing as she was probably out gathering signatures on her petition to run for re-election to the school board and she usually doesn’t add much to the meetings anyway.

First, the meeting began without a Christian Prayer. But that was probably appropriate too as there was not anything Christian about this meeting.

Then, after the Pledge of Allegiance which means nothing but a bunch of empty words when a crowd like the School Board recites the words.

The action heats up (like the fires in Hell) when Board Chairman Bully Glover starts recognizing people in attendance and presents some awards. There were several State Champion athletes that were recognized separately. Each time they were recognized, they were brought up front with the whole school board gathered behind them. All except Bully and Superintendent Fisher. Each time they jumped up from their seats, ran around to the front and got cozied-up close with the athletes to have their pictures taken with the big, fancy and expensive CCS cameras. This was an obvious Photo-Op made for political purposes to be used for Bully’s re-election campaign. These pictures will surely be put on the CCS Website and other places. Just like School Board candidate Guy Suttle’s picture and articles on the Cover, Pages 4, 6 and 7 of the 2017 Fall Cleveland Community College Magazine that was mailed out to every household in Cleveland County at taxpayer expense. Thousands of dollars of free political advertising, probably highly illegal, from the crowd that can’t shoot straight over at CCC at taxpayer expense. Stay tuned as there will be more bout this in other articles to come.

The action really heats up during the Public Participation part of the agenda. We have cut a clip from the meeting video so you can get the full effect of what happens here. Please watch as a number of people speak to the Board regarding the firing of Rick Canipe as the Girls Softball Coach at Shelby Middle School, how Canipe stool up for the team, some American Legion field dispute was involved, etc. After the last person finished, Danny Blanton asked to make a statement and Bully Glover refused to allow Blanton to speak. This prompted the contingent of speakers to make comments from the audience asking Bully to allow Danny Blanton to have his say. Danny Blanton is in fact a duly elected School Board Member and has a legal right to participate in school board meetings. But. Bully ruled Danny Blanton out of order. Then ruled the others out of order and had the Police remove the women in the audience who had spoken from the meeting. Bully Glover was showing his full colors during this exchange. Watch the clips for the full effect. Most will agree that Bully Glover has reached his level of incompetence and needs to be sent home on Election Day. Wishfully sooner than that.
