Pointing Fingers




"If folks want to wonder about how our school system has been operated. (Pointing his finger at the crowd) Right here is how its been"

-Tim Buff blaming the public for how the school system has been run.

"Look at yourself in the mirror" (wagging her finger or pencil at the crowd)

-Karen Sain

Karen and Tim,

Stupidity is better kept a secret than displayed.

PS Any comments will automatically be emailed to Tim and Karen

PSS Yeah right Karen, your ring is too small.

Hey tim, why doesn't Charlotte come to the meetings in support of you like she used to. Could it be she found out about about you and tracy?

If we weren't the laughing stock of the state yet, I believe we are now. The Fraud 5 needs to look in the mirror and see how their actions are making a mockery of our educational system. They think they are playing a great game of chess with the people, but they don't know the difference between chess and Candyland.

Ms. NOrman and Ms. Sain
Could you please STOP chewing gum at the school board meetings? Our students are not allowed to have gum in school and would be reprimanded if they were chewing gum at events like speech contests and spelling bees. It is rude, it is disrectful and a disgrace.

Good question.. Where is Charlotte?? She and Nancy Gragg used to come to all the board meetings and take notes. Where are they now? Tim and Tracy could used a good notetaker so they will be able to know what they have said in board meetings....

Karen, everyone knows that Tracy is one step away from Broughton, but now you are riding on her coat tail. Arguing with a student and making comments about pushing you into the water - HOW STUPID!!! Geesh what are you in 5th grade......oh wait... you are NOT SMARTER THAN A 5th grader....LOL...Karen if you want to see STUPID - look in the mirror!!

Did a little quick research on the NC School Board Association. Seems Tim Buff is on the Board of Directors. Allison Schaffer is on staff. She is an attorney that worked with Richard Schwartz at another law firm and also possibly, along with Schwartz, helped Rick Sherrill when he was in Pamlico County. Ms. Schaffer recommended Rick Schwartz to Tracy Norman. Wow - what a tangled web and all for $12,500 per year. The NCSBA website lists as membership benefits training, legal fund assistance, accidental death insurance for school board members, respected leadership, and increased ability to impact students positively. I think we should ask for a refund of our dues for the last few years. Membership in the organization certainly has not helped the majority of the school board members from Burke County and definitely has not helped the students.

On a side note; a lot of BCPS emps are wanting to cancel some of their insurances (dental, vision, life, etc) since the 6% pay cuts were made mandatory in July. They simply can't afford them.

Looks like they might have to hire an attorney to get it done, since the enrollments were finalized (June 5th) long before the mandatory pay cuts took affect.

This is not a rumor. It is a fact.Jk's wife found over 2000 text messages between him and Shanda.Some of those were as late as 3 in the morning. She put in the court document that he had not been showing any love and affection to her and had been acting strange for a while. He then left her not too long after the baby was born. Shanda better hope a lawsuit is not filed.

Way to go Randy Sain. Guess your nephew taught you how to use that recorder?

Anonymous said...

Hi folks,I want to clarify something I did today at our meeting and allay any fears you may have. I brought my digital recorder into the meeting to record it. I had no idea of the tenor or focus of the questioning and brought it merely to have a record in case anything we said was misconstrued (in other words - CYA). I turned it on as quickly as I sat down. It was recording when the moderator started telling us the responsibilities of the review comm. and that everything said was to be anonymous and in strictest confidence. At that point, I stopped recording. It had recorded for 3:02 before I cut it off and none of the questions they asked were recorded. In retrospect, I should have put it back in my pocket after cutting it off but I just didn’t think about it. I have already erased the recording. I apologize if my action kept anyone from speaking their mind. That was certainly NOT my intent.

DPI should launch an immediate investigation into Sain's conduct today. He should appear before the Ethics Committee to answer for his serious violation of a confidential investigation by esteemed SACS officials. Obviously, he was trying to rat out his fellow principals so his wife and her friends could retaliate against them. He could lose his license and not be able to work anywhere in North Carolina. How foolish. And for a fast sinking ship of fools. No, they capsized today!

BCPS Headline News:
Brittain/Sain Family illegal taping incident, December 2006:
Sain nephew sets up illegal video recorder in EB boys locker room, captures BB coach going through lockers and naked teenage boys, too??
BB coach says he was looking for stolen $, but admits to using poor judgement in not having a witness.
Consequences: Coach resigns from job following uproar from Sain nephew's family and friends. T. Norman secretly tapes closed board session for family, is investigated, tampers with evidence/witnesses and escapes. Sain aunt wins seat on BOE in next election. Sain Aunt teams with TN, TB, RH, DB to "get" all administrators (Anderson, Demiter, Smith, Pollpeter, Brackett, Burleson). They succeed. Hire outsiders at much hiher salaries and RS who is widely quoted as saying, "I will come back and get that little fat man" (referring to DB) Dastardly deeds are reeked on Burke County children, employees, and taxpayers by the current Foul board.
Brittain/Sain Family illegal taping incident, August 2009:
Randy Sain, current principal of East Burke Middle School admits to illegally recording a meeting with fellow principals (to entrap them)with SACS officials who are here to investigate the Foul board members.
Consequences need to be: R. Sain is demoted to teaching spanish at the alternative schools, K. Sain resigns, T. Norman resigns, T. Buff resigns, R. Hairfield resigns, J. Aulgur resigns, Swartz, Jones fired. Sherrill retires, Terrell retires. Burke County celebrates! SACS is satisfied. Commissioners restore 6900 funds. All lawsuits dropped. One by one the new carpetbagger administrators are sent packing back to where they came from. Are replaced by current BCPS employees who deserve the promotions. Those who have been riffed are called back to replace those promoted. Jobs are saved right here in Burke County. Classified employees return to full salary. The nightmare is over and we move forward.

Well Ernest Stroup the all knowing educator husband of Mrs.Stroup, writes a letter in today's paper.
Ernest is your fifth wife running to bring back David Burleson and crew? Is she and the other cohorts running with her going to come up with a policy which does not allow people in the public to discuss employee's at board meetings? You know what I am getting at Ernest,dont you? Yep,remember the lice fiasco at Hudson Middle School in the early 90's? I bet you remember worse than that dont you? You must because we sure do.
I think the Caldwell County board came up with that policy to protect you,where it would go through the Superintendent's red tape and be watered down before the board heard it. Ernest do you or your present wife have the guts to tell Burke County why you sought refuge in Burke? We are waiting!

The Adkins-McFarlin rumor is true.His Wife filled a court document at the courthouse asking for custody of the house and child support.Why would he be texting her at 3:00 in the morning? I just wonder if this court led to him losing his job.

Anonymous said...

Jk got caught up in a bad situation. Mrs.McFarlin should also have shown restraint. There were rumor's of the Zimmerman kid who got the Freedom baseball job being with Shanda a lot as well.
After reviewing the issue's one must ask,Did David Burleson know about this? It is known he covered up another affair in the system and the two individuals were able to continue together until Mr.Sherrill took over and move the one of the people to another school. I think there were many reasons Mr.Burleson was let go,this could be small in comparsion to other issue's he has avoided or not done his job on.

To whom it may concern,
If anyone would like to check my credentials as teacher, coach, or principal, please contact Kenneth Roberts, Herb Stevens, or Ronald Beane who were my principals and superintendent while I was employed by Caldwell County Schools. As far as Susan and I are concerned, we have been happily married for 17 years. My only regret is that I didn't meet her sooner. I thank God every day for bringing her into my life. My wife is above reproach. I fully expected this kind of "mud slinging" from the current board majority. We both decided that her running for the school board was more immportant than any "dirt" you think you have dug up. We have a son who is a student in Burke County Schools and we want him to graduate from an accredited high school. Susan cares about the children and employees. If anyone would like to have a first hand account of any of the "dirt" written on this anonymous blog, please call me at 828-391-3977. I would be glad to clear up these untrue rumors and tell you the truth. Anonymous, tell everyone your name and give us your number.

If you are planning to play the fidelity card here, does that mean that your two best buds at the Central Office are fair game? How far do you want to take it? Can we agree that Norman boys' behaviors are a deep reflection on their mother? Just what are your limits and rules here?

She wanted him to supply the wine, she the chocolates. LOL!!! She even went suggesting at meetings that she and he were having an affair. Tracy just thought spilling out these ideas was so cute.

I am a Patton teacher so let me set the record straight. Shanda asked to be moved because the high school job was too much for her right now. She has personal issues that have nothing to do with her love life. I wish her well. As far as Tim Davis and Rob Ford goes, we are thrilled to have them. They are both very nice men who act professionally and treat the teachers with respect. JK's marital situation is nobody's business. He is a nice man too who has bent over backwards to help kids. Leave all these folks alone, please. I'm tired of the constant rumors about my coworkers, when there's not a shred of truth.

Tracy was spotted recently at a car lot with her kids. They were tyring to trade her in for the new "Cash for Clunkers". Unfortunately for her family, the federal regulations do not grant 'Cash' for camel toes, and the mgp stands for Miles Per Gallon, not men per gap.

They were also denied because they tried to pass her off as a Passenger Car, but the dealer estimate leaned toward Large Light-Duty Trucks given the size of her tailgate and the 6500-7500lbs weight range.

She was very violent and immediately called the attorney in Raleigh to file suit against the dealer.

Tiny Tim was furious over the actions of her family and immediately pointed fingers at the dealer. He was also instructed by God to throw outdated dented cans at them and offered her family $45 and out of date yogurt as a payment.

No Tracy will not be at the fair in the exhibit hall this year. They had to reclassify her and she is now in the stables. You will see her with the tag of GED08, equal to her General Education Deploma (no Tracy it doesn't stand for Geterdone) and eigth grade education. She is easy to spot, she is the cow with the biggest ass.
