I notice there is no posting for a fifth grade teacher at Normantown. It was made very clear to Mr. Blankenship that those students required a teacher. He said we couldn’t afford a teacher because it didn’t fit into the formula to be paid by the state. If we can get in on a $300K+ land deal, we should be able to pay one more teacher. Goodness knows they don’t make that much…..
Normantown parents,,,,,remind Mr. Blankenship that they need a fifth grade teacher. That was the main point of the Local School Improvement Council mtg. there. Discussion was lengthy and parents attended to plead for a teacher.

Maybe he should give up part of his $120 K to help pay for a teacher….geez!

But let’s not forget, Gilmer County is treated like a 3rd world county in Africa and not a part of America.

Maybe he’ll hire another cook.

My personal Opinion is….............
Normantown will not get their 5th grade teacher that has been needed nor will they or any of the rest of us get much of anything except headaches and heartaches from the State Controlled Board and/Blankenship. But that’s their plan to….... squeeze, crunch, munch and spit us all out. They want and will get the one Elementary school they have been pushing for, one middle school and they both will be built on the Auction Barn hill site and once again “THE ELITES” win. Afterall, did they not get the Lewis/Gilmer Elementary?? That makes Gilmer County the top of the list in two things. The first two county school system in the state and first in corruption. How lucky can we get???? It’s MONEY in Gilmer County and State that talks, NOT COMMON SENSE. All positions will remain unfilled as much as THEY see fit so they can reach their goal of showing who rules the roost and it sure is not the little ones in this county. ALL of the students and citizens of Gilmer County are just stepping stones to be stepped on to get to the end of the “rainbow”. Gilmer County will continue on its downward spiral of political corruption. Are you proud of what you have done “elites”?

I’d say the State Bd of Ed has been made well aware of the havoc Blankenship and friends have been wreaking for their own benefit in Gilmer County by not following procedure. He has been chastised more than once. Now he’s trying to convince variuos small community groups, one at a time, that he’s going to try and change the future set by the SBA approval. He can change nothing for Lewis County. Will the SBA? They should but doubt it. Lewis County has to be ready to go by July 1 in case Mace retires. There’s not even any clarity if the chain of title on that property. After Mr. B. said no one could transfer back to Glenville or Normantown—- watch for selected transfer and bus routes for both Troy and Sand Fork to be pre-approved.

The Elite and Glenville Folks have always been against Normantown area in everything. In sports, development and education. Citizens in Normantown area pay their taxes but never get any returns. This is how it has been and it is up to the taxpayers to change it.

Economic Development? The Folk Festival didn’t even make it to the calendar in state DNR publication WONDERFUL WEST VIRGINA. Think of all the in and out of state advertisement we missed. County wide growth and development has never been a priority, just who gets the paycheck.

What has Blankenship achieved? Has he done anything to get better educations for our children, has he taken care of severe morale and leadership problems at the GCHS, has he done anything to effectively stop bullying, has he kept all the community informed about his activities and his schedule for returning the schools to local control, and has he done anything to work effectively with the elected school board? All these questions and others should be answered. Gilmer County is under siege by the State and let us not forget those who served on the CUBE group to cause our downfall. What happened to us had nothing to do with the education of our children. Instead, root causes were motives by the elite to grab more power, greed for more money by the wealthy who wanted to sell their land for schools, and behind the scenes plans in WV to tear down county borders.
