  1. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    BISD can invest the money in the building and, even in the case of a merger, use it in another capacity. This isn't about a lack of facilities as much as it is about an opportunity to do what should've been done long ago. No need for three high schools in Beaumont and this is a convenient excuse to make that a reality. it's the right decision.
  2. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    Klein is a cook.....but his info aligns with what I am hearing from other reputable sources.
  3. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    I am telling you, the TEA is not happy about the reelection of Bush and the son of Reece. They are going to do everything in their power to ensure the people of Beaumont do not get to reseat the very people that single handedly oversaw the destruction of BISD. I am not sure how accurate your source is, but I can assure you all that the TEA is considering all options at this point.
  4. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    Agreed. I didn't know if you knew about some illuminati business going on in BMT. My source dang sure hasn't filled me in on any of that.
  5. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    And who is "they"? If you are referring to the TEA.....agreed. If not, I am not sure I am following what you are implying.
  6. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    I'd probably drag my feet too since the citizens of District 2 reelected Zenobia Bush, and the citizens of District 4 elected the son of Woodrow Reece who wasn't even sharp enough to file to run for the district he lived in. Obviously the citizens of those two districts are fine with the corruption of the previous board and BISD's fragile condition cannot handle any of what they've had for the past several years. The TEA should ensure the current BOM holds on to their position until the people living in Beaumont can pull their heads out of their rear ends and ensure that their children's futures are taken care of.
  7. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    Not to mention the potential to take that third FB coach salary and split it between the two 6A schools, allowing them to actually pay a 6A salary to the football coaches. The names that might jump at the chance to coach a combined Central and Ozen squad for a competitive salary might shock us all. Plus, a district matchup between WB and "the school to be named later" would be something to look forward to year in and year out. This is all positive. Finally a BOM that truly cares about the kids and the future of BISD rather than their own interests.
  8. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    Those who will hold tightly to the history of Central need to loosen their grip. I'm all for history and tradition, but the merger makes the most sense for the kids, and for the financial viability of the district. Once they merge, they will pass a bond and build a new high school that will be fabulous. The kids that have been dealing with sub par facilities and technology will have state of the art facilities and technology. The bad teachers will be weeded out leaving only the best of the best from each campus. Education quality will rise, opportunity will rise, student success will rise. It's best for all involved. Let the tradition argument go.....it's not valid.
  9. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    Exactly. WB enrollment sits at 2400 ish currently. Two equal schools = best plan available.
  10. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    It's done. The merger is being planned as we speak. The discussion is revolving around how to handle the backlash regarding the loss of tradition and history at Central.
  11. Maybe HJ and Kountze should switch coaches. It might be time for a homecoming.
  12. All-District teams

    When they started adding "first team special teams".....that's when it jumped the shark.
  13. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    I raised all these questions when it was initially decided that the school was uninhabitable and was told that they would fix it quickly and be back to business as usual. My sources say it is done.
  14. Central/Ozen UIL situation

    Write it down....Central is going away.
  15. Liberty 31 Shepherd 28/FINAL

    You have to Ben kidding me. That will bury Liberty. 
  16. Liberty 31 Shepherd 28/FINAL

    Wait, JJ Slack was ejected? 
  17. A straight up stud that lit it up every time he laced up his cleats. A shame he didn't pan out at ETBU, but nothing for him to hang his head about. I believe he's married to a girl from Hardin now.
  18. Letter Jackets

    Ehhh, when they started giving them for UIL and Ag, they stopped being so prestigious.
  19. Letter Jackets

    Still have mine from 18 years ago, but don't wear it. Something about grown men in letter jackets.......I can't do it.
  20. Madisonville vs. Hardin Jefferson

    Makes me think that even if all other things are equal, HJ is taking a L this weekend.
  21. West Hardin 52 LHSA 31/FINAL

    Why is WH playing this game?
  22. West Hardin 52 LHSA 31/FINAL

    LHSA? Little Hopeful Shooters Association? Lonely Heart's Students Association?
  23. Madisonville vs. Hardin Jefferson

    Two words.....Rusty Nail.
  24. I think they have a good chance to get out of the region. We shall see.
