The repercussions of the July Budget and Finance Committee meeting where Council members aired frustration toward the School System for not switching to the Bright accounting system are still being felt.
At this month's School Board meering, School Board member Mike Looney responded to comments made at that meeting.
First, he said, there was a comment that the School Board Office was closed on Fridays, implicating that the School Board staff wasn’t putting in a full work week. Looney pointed out that the school’s new finance director, Janice Brown, typically goes to work at 6:30 a.m. and leaves as late as 8 p.m., Monday through Thursday.
“I think it needs to be made clear that she is putting in more than a full work week,” Looney said.

Click it or Ticket and C.A.R.E.
Have you been hearing those commercials from the Division of Motor Vehicle where the teenager said his friend ruined his concert experience because he didn’t buckle up and wound up paying a ticket for not having his seat belt buckled? Have you seen the signs posted on the roads and front fenders of police cruisers saying, “Click it or Ticket”? Did you believe it could happen to you?
Well if you have been stopped for any other violation and didn’t have your seat belt buckled, chances are you got a ticket.
