Another black on white hate crime. When is our government going to stop this.

Sounds like it is time for positive change in Decatur ISD

Decatur ISD is getting to be more like the Rhome City Council.

I find it interesting that the people making the most noise about how HORRIBLE CSCOPE and DISD is have children on the honor roll. Some crappy education they are getting to be doing so well.

We definitely need new blood!

Please get out and VOTE for a change in the DISD School board.
Let them know it's for the kids! The ones that don't play sports.

Another issue of selective news reporting. Part Fox news mixed with MAD Magazine.

The RAB council took the appropriate action based on inaropriate execution of his job. It will cost the city money but allow them a fresh start. It takes guts to recognize a mistake and do something about it.

I really fail to understand why in the world our Messenger chose to do this "Out of the Darkness" story! Seriously? We need to put suicide attempt stories on the front page? As a citizen of this county I felt sick to see that article at all, much less on the front page. People who attempt suicide should never ever be touted as some kind of hero because they survived! What if he had not survived? Would the Messenger have run the story of his successful suicide on the front page?
I've listened to many criticisms of The Messenger lately and the blaming of its decline on its new owner. I can tell you this much, if I ever see such a story or another even remotely like it, that puts the wrong people in a position of some kind of hero, I will never ever read the paper, nor will I advertise in it either. Those buinesses who routinely do advertise in it should feel the same way. Life is difficult enough for people, especially teenagers who have emotional swings consistantly. To give the idea to even one of them that to survive a suicide attempt might get them attention and a front page story is irresponsible at the least. JEERS to the owner, editor, and even the author who decided to run with this story. I am sorry for the young man's depressed state, and for his family who will now have to care for him for the rest of his life, but not to the point that it needs to be plastered for everyone who picks up a paper to have to see.

Hafer and Mosley both have little athletes coming up through the ranks. I'd call that a vested interest in sports.

I liked the story - it brought attention to the fact that not everyone dies after a suicide attempt. Those who may be thinking about it, may think twice knowing that they may not end their pain, but create more for those around them. After reading the story, I didn't think they were making a "hero" statement at all. It was more like, "don't do what I did."

I agree with 2:34 and was also shocked to see that donations are needed to help care for the subject of the article. Some things just need to stay within a familys church walls and church family can do what they will to help.

Hafer and Mosley are not daddies who will buy the moon, at taxpayers expense, for their boys to play sports. Men seem to get some kind of crazy competitive spirit and want to outdo other schools around in equipment and facilities. And by the time these ladies kids are high school athletes, their school board terms will be over. They have ACADEMIC priorities and it's about time the entire board had them too.

"It's for the kids!" Well duh! This is such a trite phrase - who else is a K - 12 education for??

It always reminds me of The Hudsucker Proxy - "You know - for kids!"

The council is a band of fools. They have pissed away the best administration that hole has ever seen and run off most of the members of a successful police department. Here comes Boss Hoggville!
