I'm Back - - But Moving Slow


I'll try and bring it back to full force over the next couple of the days. But my vacation was great - to Cabo San Lucas (pic above.)

But to buy some time, and to refer to something completely unrelated to my vacation, check out this father's rant about the Red Oak ISD. I think it's gold.

Out of curiosity, when did cheerleading contracts, signed by minors, become government documents?

Who are you kidding, we all know you just took a picture of some hidden cove on lake bridgeport and stayed home.

Only one set of foot-prints in the sand? Surely you had some sweet little honey down there with you.

Or were you walking with God and that was when he was carrying you.....from too much tequila?

Man, that IS gold!
I've dealt with kids and their parents in my job for years, and I know that sometimes parents can be unreasonable and overprotective of their kids. However, this goes beyond sounding like simple whining. I feel sorry for Ryann and what they have had to go through. I, too, have been on the wrong end of the social/economic spectrum and, believe me, it's no fun.
Good luck, Johnsons...

"she may be a cheerleader in Texas, but she's not a 'Texas Cheerleader'" now THAT is gold.

Ryann? One day, someone will just name their kid Xdioplfg and will feel "disrespected" when a poor teacher or boss can't spell it. I actually considered, when my kids were born, to give them names that everyone could spell. What a waste of time that was. Thought their life would be a fraction easier that way. But no, there are now so many bastardizations of the names Rachel and Emily that even they must endure "how do you spell that?" because of the oddball spellings...like Rachaell, Raychelle, Reighchal, Emilee, Emmalee, Emaleigh. What the heck is wrong with us? Maybe there is a parent out of a Jordynn or Jessikka out there who can chime in and set me straight.

Welcome back. You were missed.

Poor Ryann. I'm sure she did nothing to justify this horrible treatment. Well, it's OK honey, Daddy carries a gun and he knows the number for the FBI. He will fix all those mean old people and then plaster your story all over the Internet so everyone, everywhere will know how awful all those other 13 year olds are.

Red Oak ISD seems to have many similarities to Decatur. Whatcha think?

Hey 10:58,
you think there's an attorney in Red Oak with a blog that runs stories about the Decatur cheerleaders problems? That would be classic!

9:59, it's for originality mostly. It's a way to take an ordinary name and make it not so ordinary. Not just that, when they start school, it sets "Emily" and "Emmalee" apart so there's less confusion, especially when starting school and everything is mostly on a first name basis.

So tell the truth, you took Ms. Mischief with you, that would be the only logical reason that she has not posted anything here....wondering if the WCSD is hiring.....

10:58, I agree totally. I'm guessing that you, along with plenty of other parents of DISD students, have had to deal with "Decatur politics" and the favoritism that is shown to some of the students here.

I think the Dad is terrific but I feel horribly sad for Ryann. What message is that school sending our kids?

Channel 5 News at 10 had this story on it.

As if school isn’t hard enough for 13 year old girls. This sort of things happens all the time. As for the being friends the more popular you are the meaner things get. One girl has to leave the click. Just seems like Ryann got the short end of the stick. As for the Couch that did nothing to stop the treatment of Ryann and who tried to change the Contract should not be allowed to teach there. I expect for the people that teach my children to honest and to teach honesty. I am pretty sure that teachers are supposed to be held to higher standards and morals.

I believe that the cheerleader contract would be a government document (if you spray paint a school you are defacing government property) and even if not is a legal one. After all that is why they not only have the student sign it but the parent as well. And if the dismissed cheerleader's parents decide to go to court about against the school trying to get the girl back on the team you can bet you ass the school would present the contract as a Legal Government Contract between the parents, student, and the school.



Oh yeah, So happy your back, I really missed the updates.
