Tom Hylton…..Ad nauseam

Seriously Rick, you need to reign in Hylton.  It should be forbidden for a school board member to arbitrarily post their “editorials” and “plans”  in the Mercury, independent of the rest of the school board.  The board is a unit, Tom is a cog.  The board needs to make statements from the board as a whole. 

Y’all need to pass a rule that stops this nonsense.  I make a motion that forbids school board members from putting ads in the Mercury advertising their position on the issues!  Who will second it?!?

Details were released that Stephany Flores’ neck was broken.  Her body was found Tuesday, by a maid.  No weapon was found indicating that the killer used his bare hands.  Joran’s hotel room was a compete mess.
