Here's what I think and know. I think it's obvious of the violations that have been committed by the board members and teachers. Ethics, Moral and Professional code of Conduct. I think it's obvious that we need new board members due to the Ethics violations and the new board members should fire the teachers due to the Professional code of Conduct violations. I think how someone conducts themselves in their personal lives tells more about them than anything else. Obviously, these people seem to have no Ethics or Morals which eliminates Character all together but yet they are in positions of leadership and influence. How can anyone lead someone else when they lack Character or Values. Losers seems to be defensive over all of this. I have to wonder if losers might be Kayla Collins based on their posts. (Didn't someone say losers threatened them. Don't think the State Board would let a teacher keep their license if convicted of communicating a threat, if losers is a teacher). They have put down her husband to the point of acting as if he has done horrible things. Anybody with at least half a brain knows better. Every marriage has problems but he hasn't done anything to deserve how he's been or being treated. The talks of abuse are garbage. Obviously, things were bad enough for people to think that Loggins and Collins were having an affair. She left home a couple months ago and is already with someone else from what I hear. So what does that tell you? Look who she's with verses who she left. The main difference is that it's not her husband, the father of their daughter among other differences. The reason I'm pointing this out is because people talk and I have been asked about it and know the family. Her husband and kid are getting the raw end of the deal. If you ask me she seems to be following the same thing her mom did to her dad. Saying bad stuff about her husband to get people to not think bad of her for what she's doing or has done. If you know him then you know better. I've witnessed first had the difference in how their daughter is with her verses being with him. She clearly seems happier with him. Not saying that she doesn't have fun with her mom, I'm saying that she seems happier with him and seems to prefer to be with him. What does that tell you? To me that speaks volumes. It's sad how someone gets treated that cares enough about their kid to even be willing to get past things for the sake of their kid. It's really sad that a kid is having to deal with it when she deserves better. I really and truly hope things turn around for them especially for the sake of their daughter. I'm here because I thought people should know a little bit before talking or thinking bad about him and I hope that this doesn't make things harder for them to possibly work things out. People make mistakes sometimes. It's if a person realizes they have made one or not and how they correct it that matters. Never understood how a house divided was ever better than one united or how people could ever think it would be. As far as the other people involved in the school mess, I don't know them well enough to comment on things other than the violations that have been committed. Those aren't new to anyone anyway.

Well I looked at the coaches record worst record I've ever seen from any high school girls coach in the past 20 years. The best I can tel the reason you don't have any coaches is sites like this. So if to single people want to be in a relationship so be it. Your proof came from the loud mouth coaches wife who didn't get his high school coaching job back. By the way did anyone ever check his financial records for AAU! So don't get on here and preach unless you preach it all.

I've read through all of this entire forum, to which I find numerous entries down right nasty! I'm going to give you my take on what I believe to be the most important issues.

1: We have had 2 board members that have clearly had affairs on their wives. Both have been proven and evidence was submitted to the board attorney by 2 different parties. That my friends isn't the true issue, sadly this happens quite a lot. The problem lies with whom the affairs were with. I could care less that they had affairs. What I do care about is this. Those men have put our school system in jeopardy of being sued in the future. So ok Williams and Russell are both divorced now and publicly displaying their relationship, all is good at this point. Not so fast. What happens if they split and Russell decides to sue the school system for sexual harassment among other things. Then whose responsible? As to the Collins/Loggins affair, I haven't found any proof of this, not saying it didn't happen, since she was brought in to do a job temporarily before being promoted to take over the girls basketball program. Kind of fishy if you ask me!

2: Upon given the evidence of one of the affairs, the board attorney who is the "BOARDS" attorney, lets the member involved know that he doesn't have to resign, and there's nothing anyone, other than his fellow board members can do to make him resign. So when you've got 1 other board member that is doing the same thing, 1 that is his best bud, and 1 that just wants to sweep everything under the rug, that leaves only 1 lonely member who actually did stand up and tell them they were in the wrong. So how do you get that vote to have him removed? You can't! There is nothing to be done unless the board themselves do so! They are a self governed board!

3: We have board members who made false accusations against faculty members, that found out about their affairs. These teachers were made to defend themselves for things they hadn't done, all because they busted a board member and his mistress. Talk about being vindictive, refer to #1.

4: Administration and faculty are all afraid to speak up for the what is the truth! I've spoken with staff and admins of Alleghany Schools, and the answer I get when I ask them about this whole unethical board mess, is we can't say or do anything because they can and will have us fired. Now what's wrong with this picture??

5: We have a board that got rid of a great coach, because of his wife calling out their unethical behavior. I've talked her and she just called it like she saw it, saying they should resign. One member who only ran to make sure this coach was let go, based on his dislike for the man. Their excuse after the fact is as Mrs. Loggins stated "He was let go because lack of wins and his inability to relate with the girls." Which by the way is a violation of personnel confidentiality! I strongly recommend you look closely at the last 5yrs of this coaches career and see that the wins significantly increased as well as they actually made the playoffs this past year to which they hadn't since 2012 I believe.

I have spoken to coach Miller and I'm certain there's more to do with parents and coach Miller not doing as the parents thought he should with their sweet angels, so parents complained and the board didn't have the balls to stand up to them. Who can relate to any kid, when their parents are home bad mouthing the coach? Too bad Coach Miller didn't sue the board for personnel confidence violations, since obviously they were discussing his employment outside the school system. No wonder they can't find coaches in this county!!! Who would want to put up with this kind of mess, let along parents who are never satisfied!

6: There are ethics violations all over the place with the board! We all see it! However, there is nothing any of us can do but to vote the uneducated idiots out! Yes I said uneducated! Only 2 of them have a degree beyond high school, and one doesn't even have a high school diploma! Really citizens?? We have voted these guys in based on what? We must do better! We as a county need to encourage good educated people to run for our school board! Our children, who are watching this mess mind you, deserve better!!! All of this mess is going on right in front of children! Why aren't they being better examples of what good ethical adults should be which is what you were elected for, instead of being so arrogant and portraying as though you are untouchable if you hold a place in political office.

To Suzanne and Amy: Stand up and make a motion for their resignation, especially the ones who you know there is proof!! That's what we want to see! Vote them out!!!

I think that's what these posts are about Stopthesmearcampaign. Family is more important. At least it should be. Some people are just ignorant and don't care enough about their kids to make sure that the family is top priority.

Haven't visited this site in quite a while. I can't believe this is still being discussed. Sorry but do you folks not have something better to do with your time...like talk to your kids and family. I'll check back in about a month and see if anyone had taken my advice. Remember no one is promised the next breath so make good use of your time. Family is far more important than all this drama.

I think it's a great and accurate message and one that should really be taken to heart. I think couples should stay together even when it's really tough to do so or they may not even want to. I think the marriage covenant taken with God should be honored even when they don't want to. How do people expect to teach their children or expect their children to see God's glory if they can't even put God first during difficult times themselves? Even though all that is true and pretty sure neither God nor the kids are happy about things and even though it's a great video the problem is that these people just don't care enough about God or even their kids to do different. So I'm just focusing on getting them out of their positions.

Awesome video. The ending of Sylvester Morgan's video about this video is actually the main point. The best statements he makes are if you have kids then stay married and think less of yourselves and more for others. The problem is selfish people. Instead of trying to find ways to do things better as a family they do for themselves. If the kids were the focus then they would do it (with the exception of child abuse in the home). There is no tolerance for that what so ever. If that''s not the issue then it is pure selfishness. Which usually means that one parent doesn't actually have the kids best interest in mind. Those types of people can watch this video 100 times and still try to justify their actions thinking that their kids will be just fine. If you watch the video and find yourself doing that then that should be your first clue.

Either click on the picture in ohmygoshreally post, search on youtube 100 dollars for the winner of the race or the link is https://youtu.be/vwxs5lvypC5Q this video is truly one of the best examples of why couples should work through whatever problems they may have. I couldn't imagine a parent watching this video, knowing how true it is and still not wanting to do whatever it took to work through whatever issues they may have as a couple just to give their kid/kids a better chance of success. People can research all they want to but the facts are still the same. A child that grows up in a house with both parents still together has a higher chance of being successful. That's what it should be about.

Watch it on YouTube then sylvester morgan's video response to it. He goes into a big spill but at the end he finally nails it. The point of the whole video is the benefits a kid has when their parents stay together. Everything else is a domino affect from that. It doesn't guarantee anything but it takes away a lot of disadvantages. If people don't understand how important it is for a kids parents to stay together then they are absolute morons that care about nothing other than themselves. Wake up and Grow up.

People need to watch this video if they haven't already. It's all about the advantages of a child that grows up with parents that are together. The first two questions he ask's says it all. If you don't get the point then there is something wrong with you.

I would just like to say that losers has private messaged me making things sound like something they are not and has even threatened me. I'm curious as to how many other people losers has messaged and made things sound a certain way when it's not the case or who else they may have threatened? Who is losers?

You know what's funny? People don't realize that their personal lives are scrutinized more than anything else. That's because how they conduct themselves personally is a reflection of who they are. So when people have affairs, split up a family or hang out with certain people then it all looks bad. I've heard that trash generally hangs out with trash.

firefly99--- your questions are great questions. The thing is that when confronted they become defensive. They want to know why your judging them. They're to blind to the fact that if they weren't doing what they were doing then people wouldn't be questioning them. They know what they are doing is wrong. People try to say that couples can't stay together for their kids but that's a lie. Kids should be the diving force to work through anything. God should be the main reason but when you mention God then they get really defensive. People get defensive when they know they're wrong.

That's exactly right peachy. Something else I would like to know is what's more important? Why do people look at there kids and not work a marriage out? How can people look at their own kids and think that they'll just get over it? Sometimes it seems like people care more about their pets than there kids. People can come up with all kinds of excuses to not want to fix a marriage but how many of them are more important than their kids or God as has been metioned on here all ready. If people don't care enough about their own kids or God then they'll never care enough about ours. Being a board member, teacher or coach is more than just a job. It's about building ethics, morals and character within the kids. How can they do that if they have none themselves? Judgement is in God's hands and he will judge. Why add to it unnecessarily? Do people not also think about all kids want is their mom and dad together and how much better their life is when couples work things out.

I do believe there was a post stating that a board member actually said affairs were true. So that and the knowledge of one couple in the open about it is pretty compelling.
