What Is Going On?

North Marion High School was evacuated yesterday following a bomb threat. Five students were arrested following a fire at Fairmont Senior High School. The Doddridge County Board of Education is offering a $500 reward for information leading ot the arrest of people making threats against the high school there. Fairview is evacuated following a bomb threat in Texas. East Fairmont is holding random drug searches and catching multiple people. Every week it is something new with local schools. And it's not good news.

What is wrong with people? It's actually becoming an epidemic. I guarantee someone knows who made the threat in Doddrige and they need to turn them in and collect their $500. The Fairmont Sr. students were caught and need to be prosecuted to the fullest extent possible. The students caught at EFHS needed expelled and never returned to the Marion County school system. A bomb threat used to just mean an hour out of class but with the climate today it presents serious issues for school officials and action must be taken to the fullest extent possible. And those punishments need to be publicized vigorously to discourage others from following the same actions.

In other news, the West Virginia "Welcome Message" vote is underway and you can vote up to October 29th. This may be the dumbest thing I have ever seen. But what a way to engage the great people in West Virginia. Or at least I'm sure that's what the governor is thinking. You can vote at West Virginia's Welcome Message site. Have fun with that...
