Just the stupid ones…

Ignorance is the lack of information, a curable condition. JEriCHo can cure most in :10

  Stupid is when we have the information available and you ignore it and pretend you have no other options.

Life is hard, it’s even harder when you are stupid.  – John Wayne

postheadericon Bond issue warns of failures and fraud

Significant Deficiency 2009-1 (Private Purpose Trust Fund)

Condition: The last three months of transactions were not recorded in any

scholarship account with missing documentation pertaining to deposits,

and a lack of central oversight.

Cause: The condition is a result of not having central oversight of all scholarship

funds and allowing multiple individuals to involve themselves in recording


Effect:: The failure to not properly monitor these funds can cause errors or fraud

to occur without being detected by anyone.

postheadericon WW School District tells tales of woe – State funding


This email is a follow up to the phone conversation we had today regarding Western Wayne School District’s PlanCon process…

It is now March of 2014, three years later and we have not seen any funding.  We have been making Bond payments since 2006.  At the end of the 13-14 school year we estimate about $1,200,000 is already owed to us from the state for the state’s share of our construction program. 

 Two years ago our Fund Balance was $4,500,000, which is approximately 11% of our $40,000,000 budget.  At the beginning of this school year we are down to $2,700,000.   In part because we are funding the state’s share of our construction project until they find the money to pay us back.  


Take care,



Rose E. Emmett, Business Manager

Western Wayne School District

postheadericon Cleaver mentions closing Shull-David, Again

More reports of Cleaver comments keep rolling in… 

So many that we need to advertise them so others can be prepared.   

If you have any email them to us:

In a last ditch effort to gain support of his Elementary Center, J J Cleaver,  Superintendent of schools mention the possibility of closing  Shull-David to parents, AGAIN.   

With NO AUTHORITY to do so, Cleaver is just making attempts to bully parents into agreement on an Elementary Center.   What will this man do next?  Character is often defined as the way one acts when they think no one is watching.   Welcome to the Tribe, everyone is watching.  Cleaver gets a nice check.  He should focus on education where he is strong, and get help from wise businessmen on matters of Asset Management.  This way we can build a strong team and strong district.  A leader takes directions and leads.  In a school district the agenda is set by the town first, they elected a Board to execute it and the board hires an Administrator to see the job gets done.  It is not the Architect and the Superintendent that set a TAX and BUILD agenda.        

His attempt to divide the taxpayers UNITED has failed.   Shull-David, we have your back.  

We stand united as we keep ALL our local schools open, safe, well maintained and DEBT free.

Apparently, he leveraged false information that our group was based solely in and around the Franklin school area.   He told the parent that our well funded group would have no interest in Shull-David.  POPPYCOCK!   Lehighton School District is a community of Brave Indians, Strong in all four elementary schools.  We surround the Administration from all four districts. At last count we have 746 strong and we are growing fast.   

We,  as a group,  successfully fought to stop Kraky and Krause.  Remember when they went on their rampage to close the LAMS with their false tales of woe.  We fought EI and the Superintendent’s failed attempt after failed attempt.   EI Associates pitched plan after plan to TAX and BUILD.  The sick TAX and BUILD agenda has been going on battle after battle for 6 years.  We stand strong.  Often these plans had no firm numbers, had bias facts and no demographic justification.   They like the Elementary Center  were all just pigs in a poke.  Like PT Barnum looking for a fool, EI gets paid to create them one after another.  Can’t we just TERMINATE this architect yet?  Cleaver could be a good Superintendent if EI wasn’t whispering sweet nothings in his ear all day.           

We fight ignorance on all levels.  Our strength is the ability to read, think and offer transparency upon the LASD Administration regime.  We have proof that the Administration  manipulates and leverages the board.  Just not sure how or why some of the board gave away their responsibility to think for the benefit of the district?      

When Cleaver first floated this Shull-David trial balloon comment it was also made at the PTO meeting in an attempt to sell the E Center.  See earlier posts.   At those meetings he offered Franklin an orchestra like band and to Shull-David he talked to the fear of redistricting. 

Keep sending us your comments and we’ll keep sharing them.
