 SUPT. DR. ROB FLETCHER COMMENTS

"...Lawrence County High School was the scene for two incidents that happened after hours last week. 

On February 1, one of the storage buildings located near the soccer field was destroyed by fire.  The building housed primarily equipment associated with our FFA organization. 

On February 3, an act of vandalism occurred at our weight room facility. There was minor damage to stools, ceiling, etc., but thankfully, no equipment was stolen, and no one was injured.  Both cases are under investigation. 

We appreciate our state and local authorities that are conducting the investigation and also those that responded to each situation.  Our first responders are good people that strive to keep our facilities safe, and again, we are very thankful for those that serve in our police and fire departments."

The 2 students that you are talking about were questioned because they were working out instead of sitting on their butts like most students. They took the time and now people are bullying them because of it.

Quoting HaHa:
This is not Lawrence County High Schools weight room. This is another Feltner run thing. Ask anyone and this building is called the Baseball Building. Mr. Feltner will not let anyone use it.

Challenge this issue during a board meeting.

He is dead wrong. The public can use this weight room during normal hours as stated below. The only thing I disagree with the at comment is I was wrong on what money built it. I said taxpayers money. LCHS (Feltner more than likely) said I was wrong and that Coal Severance money built it. I don't know where he came up with this but the last time I checked Coal Severance is a TAX.

That is not just Lawrence County High School's weight room facility. A lot of citizens do not know it but it is also for the public's use. Taxpayer money built it and it was made public when it was built that anyone could use it. Look it up. It was in the newspaper.


You are wrong. Coal Severance did......and the building is open to the public during normal hours.


Why am I wrong?
