I have capitol projects I need to complete around my farm. So, am I able to ask someone else to pay for that, or do I just have to figure out how to fit it in my current budget? Since I can't dig in to everyone else's pockets like our local government does, I guess I will make it fit with my current budget.
I believe Shenandoah County should cut there spending and stop saying yes to everything that comes along! If it was the boards personal money I’ll bet the spending would be different. Stay within your budget and cut somethings out!
Make the private sector pay. How about a making new construction pay for road and school improvements. Or better yet stay within your budget, cut spending on the state and local levels. The government is supposed to work for us.
Shenandoah County needs to get on the Dave Ramsey Plan.
I have the envelopes...
Paying at least 10% tax (sales & an already meals tax) now. Add more to that and you'll pay so much more for just an ordinary hamburger.
Good for them!!
Tax, tax, tax, spend, spend, spend...you have to feed the beast
This tax money will never be seen for use on anything it’ll just go to salaries so the local government can get a raise
Someone on the bord must need a raise. I say cut costs and no new taxes. Also It would help if they served some goodfood. My son sends me picks of the food they serve and it lools like something youed see in a prison movie.
Do it I will just eat in Warren County. Restaurants are better there anyway.
Well, when a growing community has the same revenue rates for ten-plus years, logic would tell you things will be getting more expensive to provide to the community.
And the sad part about this is, when the child comes to school with a weapon to get revenge or sadly enough takes their own life, the school will say.....I wish we would have known about the situation so we could have done something
Thank you Greg Dresher!!!
Well when is she going to file a lawsuit? That is what this is really about!
The parents of the bullies should be held responsible for their child’s actions
Bullying has been going on for years and no one at the school cares teachers principal and when the child takes up for himself he gets in trouble it is not right
Bullying is absolutely an issue to be addressed, but let's also talk about why there's no Special Ed program in the schools. How is this even possible in this day and age??
Restorative Conferences...wonder if they’ve tried it?
Ask our Sheriff candidates how they will handle reports or video of bullied, beaten, racial profiling of our Warren County Students. Ask Jason Poe and Mark Butler for their input.
I wish some of these martial arts studios in town would offer free self defense classes for these bullied kids. The only way to stop a bully is to put them in their place. Rules need to change. Kids shouldn’t get in trouble for defending themselves. Bullies don’t care about getting in trouble, good kids do. So why punish the ones trying to follow the rules? My kids have a “punch them in their face” rule. If they get suspended, we are celebrating with a special trip and ice cream. I will never stand by and watch my kid be a victim. Teach the throat punch and sternum punch. That should take care of the bully real quick.
I find it very sad that people respond to this article with comments about how someone spelled something on a sign incorrectly, or to respond to someone else's comment negatively. This is part of the problem, everyone feels entitled to use Facebook to say whatever they want as there are no consequences. The issue here is bullying - protecting our children while they are in school or at home on their computer. The issues are education for our children, providing a safe learning environment. These people feel that no one is listening and they had to resort to a protest or walk or march or whatever you want to call it. They are only trying to bring attention to a problem because they feel nobody is listening or making a change. Please let them talk about it and share without criticizing. This community needs to mend, heal, come back together. It starts with all of us, please be part of the solution.
Protesting? Or appealing to the government and armed police, who are nothing but violent bullies, to do something. Getting government out of education is a start.
So if you read the story correctly it says they could be done in a couple months if they get it asphalted before the asphalt plants close in November? Here's my first question. They said they are putting concrete down on that damaged section so what is getting asphalt? Second if you knew the plant would close in November why didn't you start the repairs sooner to ensure you would have it done before the asphalt plant closures so as to not delay the project? I swear the only thing worse than a politician is a government worker wasting money with planning like this.......
Just like every thing else in Warren county. If they had done it right the first time, they wouldn’t have to do so many repairs. But what does Warren county know about saving money? They’ve got plenty of taxpayers...........right?!
So the wait begins
Day 1 Work on roadway suspended till after the rain, and so the rain delays begin 😂😂😂😂
I hope he’s incarcerated in general housing. And his fellow inmates welcome him warmly!
I think it's funny how people show remorse when they are in front of a judge but I know the things this man has said and I don't believe he has any remorse. So glad he got what he did. Think he should have gotten more. That poor child has to leave with this the rest of her life.
If there is justice he will get his when he goes to prison
He shouldn’t have A life period. Her should be dead
Life in prison is too good for a child rapist.
Let him out, after letting us know.
If he got LIFE then what is the requirement of registering as a convicted sex offender? Locked up all.your sorry life MEANS never out and never needing to register. Which means he could and may get paroled.
This lady continues to show her brazen personality and carelessness for the law. Unbelievable.
She must have learned from the crooked politicians in Washington DC.
Why isn’t everything she owns frozen????
Doesn’t this violate her bond? I mean for a drug charge the county will hold a person till their court date & count it as “time served”. Yet in a million dollars scheme, let’s release them & let them try to cover their tracks..... makes sense, said no one ever!
How teachers are allowed to put their students in a quiet room in the office and leave them there ALL DAY with no lunch.
Paid leave. WOW!! WHAT IS OUR school system coming to. If, guilty, i sure would not pay him. WE need to check the system out.
Paid to sit at home... I want that job!!
I don't think you should receive pay I think he should be fired. And I don't think Melanie could take care of it either because I've had nothing but problems with her they always cover everything up I believe they should start looking more into the school system there's more going on and I think there is
This is B.S. and citizens of Warren county and Front Royal knows this. Now is the time to STOP THIS CRAP. There is way more going on than what meets the eye.
Someone within the school board should have called the fraud and waste hotline to report him.
Very scary indeed and I'm praying a full recovery for this cyclist. Also, as a cyclist myself I have to wonder at that hour of the morning did he have any lights on his bike.
The part of road where it happened was 45-55mph so I highly doubt wearing a helmet would have made much of a difference. These news articles are subtly placing all the blame on the child when the driver was at fault too.
My view is both are at fault for the reasons behind both
Nobody is to blame really. It sucks for the bus driver and the kid on a bike. Hope he gets well.
Article clearly states that the driver was not at fault!!!
76 year old bus driver? Should some that age be driving our kids?
I was once blue lighted while sitting in a parking space at 7-11 and told my tags were dead (they were not), and had 2 other officers show up, once it was determined the initial officer was wrong, they then wanted to search my car and run my ID for warrants. I am not against police, but why the need to try to incriminate someone because you made a mistake?
So, let's use almost the entire annual salary of a town officer to pay someone else to perform a study on how to pay the officers a better wage? That makes so much more sense than using that $30k to increase their salaries this year & work on a new budget for the following years. 😆 The town of Strasburg really is run by a group of geniuses.
Overpaid for sure don’t even live in strasburg and after something that happened to a family member and nothing was done about it I could careless if they never pay any of you all.
Police officers should be compensated well; they protect and serve US. If all officers just "found another job," I'm not sure any of us would like a town without law enforcement.
Look T the arrest reports in the Nov daily. Almost all drunk in public, DUI or drug possession do they sit outside the bars an breweries an wait for someone to leave
I bet if you examined the expenditures of county folks, you can easily find the money.
You people that are putting down our police officers are a sad part of human being
Or how about the county stops issuing permits to shady developers who build subpar housing and sell at top rate prices. Economic development and growth is so important, but there is a right and a wrong way to go about it.
Takes 3 cops to pull some one over for a broken tail light... Scared of the own shadow.. Go work in a real job for 35000 a year..
and now all of the "Back the Blue" and "Blue Lives Matter" people turn into "why do we have so many officers?"
Every one is under pay in this world.
They knew what the job paid when they took it didn't they!
Um, find a different job?
Maybe because they have like 200 on staff lol.
Aren't we all
Spend 30k on a study?
Just split that among the officers...
That’s a raise..
Ummm the town is like 3oo yards
Well maybe they shouldn't have so many cops for such a small town
Maybe if they actually did their jobs, they would get a raise.
They Voluntarily accepted the pay, if they don’t like it, quit
Obviously the present board just DOESN’T GET IT, It’s time for a TEA PARTY. They just don’t care about the citizens. Time for them to get out of town.
Judging by all of the credit card receipts that One Mad Mother has been posting, they’ve all be using our tax dollars for their own personal expenses for years.
Very interesting. Embarrassing, but yet no shame indeed for those folks implicated. This entire humiliating fiasco will be a best selling book one day. One title can be "Building Wealth Immorally from Joe Taxpayer and Avoiding Time Behind Bars for Dummies: WC Officials and the Embezzlement Development Authority". Every taxpaying citizen should be livid.
Making 6 figure salaries wasn't enough for them with. elected jobs to represent the citizens who voted them in..... Send them to the unemployment lines !!!!
Surely this must be a joke!!!! The current BOS needs to be ousted and new members brought in. Haven’t they cost our town enough already, and to think they are entitled to this???? Shame on them for even considering such a thing!!!!
I have to say I am really shock that this is a surprise? Do you know how much of your tax dollars go to crap like this. Millions of dollars In revenue and how many capital improvements do you actually see. They over inflate the budget for projects all the time. Taxes keep rising and stacking. Property Tax, Real Estate Tax, Meals Tax. We should be demanding to see receipts and proposals and construction bids.
This would be a huge mistake! It may be in their contract or bylaws, but I'm pretty sure whoever wrote that didnt intend it to mean, steal from this fund and we will pay for your attorney. Get outta town!
I live in Page County and i think that is the stupidest thing i have ever heard of.If ya can't do the time .Don't do the crime
It’s time to stop this crap now. If this is approved we need to get rid of the whole board now. It’s time the supervisors LISTEN TO THE PEOPLE
Really? They embezzle and the town foots their defense bill? You’re kidding right? I wonder if Walmart pays for a defense team for an employee that steals stuff from the company?
Nothing like having this on the agenda for a meeting that happens when most people work and can't attend to voice their opinion...
Absolutely unbelievable they would consider such a move. Politicians corrupt on all levels. Warren Co. taxpayers revolt!!!!
Indemnity does not apply to criminal matters, contract or not 🤦♀️
Everyone needs to show up to the meeting and discourage it or face not being re-elected
Have they not used enough of it!?
And the corruption continues !!!
I don't think so.
Just take it out of the eda account
When and where is the meeting?
Why not just let the eda pay for it?
NO NO NO NO NO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
