Coach R yan Sulkowskis on-the-eld successFollowing publication of last weeks edition with our report on Coach Ryan Sulkowskis deception regarding the Whiteys incident, we turned to Facebook to ask readers if his o-the-eld behavior should be overlooked because of his success on the football eld. Heres a look at some of the reactions we saw: Jamie Webb: Correct me if Im wrong but the transgression was $163 which was repaid to the school and he was disciplined by the school to the tune of $2,000+ in lost wages. I would say that it has not been overlooked and the punishment dealt was overboard. Brandi Kay Funk: I think you guys need to quit beating a dead horse ... Geez. Tracey Mayhall: I think yall should start putting all the good things all these coaches do for these kids in the paper instead of all the negative. Thats all the paper is anymore, negative crap that no one like to read! Crystal Gregory: No. The money he spent on alcohol couldve been spent in a classroom somewhere! Im not clipping box tops for his alcohol consumption! Joy Bennett Rhoden: Geez, just get over it ... He who has no sins, cast the rst stone. Why not report some of the good things teacher and coaches do? Jackie Rodgers: He was punished for this already. It should be left in the past. The boys seem to respect him. At this point I feel as if the spotlight should be on the players. Theyre the ones proudly representing our county! Their dedication shouldnt be clouded by an already resolved issue. Thats just my opinion. We all have dierent perspectives. As a proud parent of a Wildcat, that is mine. Patti Crews Mobley: I think teachers/coaches/administrators should be held to a higher standard than they apparently are and we as taxpayers and parents should be able to blindly trust all three, but as we see we cant.

It should be left in the past. Claudia Townsend Taylor: Absolute ly not. OK, so he paid the money back. Wonderful, but the deal also is that he lied. What is that telling children. Any more, its all about winning. So whats more important? Richard Clark: Negative. You either have character or you dont. Doesnt matter what you do.H ome invasion, robbery arrestsThe following are some of the comments that surfaced in response to a brief report on three arrests in the violent home invasion robbery case announced September 20: Cindy Anger Rhoden: This truly strikes a bad chord with me, as my elderly parents were also victims of a violent home invasion 3 years ago. The young man almost killed my dad, beat him unmercifully, beat up my mom also. They were 78 at the time. My dad never recovered fully from his injuries and passed away in May. My mom re covered physically, but no longer feels safe in her home. I dont remember the judges name. She was a female, but she sent the young man away for 45 years. No parole. Theresa Wilcox: At some point we must come together. I pray for the elderly man that this happened to as well as the young men who [allegedly] did this. Clayton Yarbrough: Common thugs. Some liberal judge will let them o easy because they had a bad childhood or some other lame excuse as usual. Judy Raulerson Gentile: Shame Mr. Johnson didnt have his rearm close at hand. This may have been a completely dierent news story. The thugs were lucky this time. Logan Nevill: This absolutely breaks my heart ...Cant believe people can actually be okay with doing this to an elderly person or any person for that matter! Neisha Forevahisladii: Free Dreak, free Quel, free Nookie! Kaleb White: Anyone who thinks they should be set free after [allegedly] beating that man and invading his house is a special kind of stupid. Them boys are lucky theyre even alive and in jail around. Here when the cops are called to get someone for breaking in and beating someone half to death, its to pick up the bodies of the thugs! LeRoy Ellis: I dont think they should be let free at all. Do crime serve the time. Dasheria Allen: Yall would down talk a black person and label them as a thug, but what about the white people who get a DUI and kill somebody? Monica Long: What a bunch of cow ards. Its not about race people they would be considered thugs no matter what the color. Two of them were already convicted felons, obviously their punishment wasnt that bad for them to be at it again. This makes me sick. I actually moved out here to be safe. Jennifer Marshall Frame: Its really sad people cannot tell the dierence between right and wrong anymore. Donna Battles: If these guys did what they are charged with they should get punished. Wrong is wrong no matter what the color. Keri Bolden: This isnt a black or white thing. Wrong is wrong! Julie Laird: Im glad the cops caught these guys quickly. I pray the judges make an example out of them all! MY SIDE OFTHE MATTERROBERT GERARD Do we want to be a football district?Last week the newspaper published a story detailing how Baker Highs football coach and the county school superintendent turned what was initially a foolhardy misuse of a school district credit card to buy booze at a restaurant into a much more se rious transgresBoth Coach Ryan Sulkowski and School Superintendet Sherrie Raulerson initially claimed he turned himself in before the errant charge was under Floridas public records law clearly indicate that was untrue, and clearly indicate that two assistant coaches in volved in Whiteys Night Out initially lied about whether the He was, and they didnt own up to the truth until school principal Tom Hill contacted the restaurant and the waitress More unsettling now is the fact that Superintendent Raulerson, who clearly had access to the investigation in March before the initial newspaper story was published, stuck with what she knew was a blatant falseTo what end? After last weeks story hit the streets, readers naturally drew their own conclusion as to the timing, the relevance, the seriousness of the transgression, Thats normal and to be expected, indeed encouraged in a society that is supposed to valAs to the timing of the story, theres an explanation, though many may find it hard to befollowing the original Whiteys story in April, suggestions that wed been snookered (thats an old Cracker expression) kept The credibility of the whisperers rose from street level to they should know and get the documentation on the Sulkowski probe last March after a school bookkeeper blew the whistle on him, and find out What they revealed, other than the conspiracy to withhold the truth about who turned who in, was that Coach Sulkowski made two other illicit charges on the school Visa card during His subsequent explanation of those can best be described as dubious, but theyll So now, the coach is in the middle of another, probably page one of this edition is another story outlining an allegation by certified athletic trainer Behind the scenes at the big pageantthat a JV football player was put back into a game against Trinity Christian two weeks ago despite concerns that he may There seems to be legitimate disagreement about who said what to whom, but it isnt coming at a good time for Ryan Sulkowski if credibility plays a role in any Then comes the news early this week that one of Sulkowskis assistants, Scott McDonald, well-respected and well-liked member of the coaching corps and (ahem!) a local boy with a well-entrenched cadre of adAre those war drums we hear on the horizon? So, lets consider what is obviously the larger question in Do we want a school system where football coaches appear to rank higher on the peck ing order than ordinary shlubs with advanced degrees in actual learning disciplines? Do we want coaches, even volunteers who are arrested for being part of an organized illegal cockfighting sport in charge of setting examples for impressionable junior high athletes? planned to take action against Coach Rock Rhoden the cock Such duplicity portends many hazards, among them a seething resentment among other faculty members and school employees who recoil at One such worker, a veter an school bus driver, angrily pointed out that shed be fired from Whiteys in her own vehiStill others steamed after it was revealed in the April story that Coach Sulkowski didnt have any specific teaching duassigned some nebulous mentoring duties that sounded a lot like keeping errant students who happened to be good footmember of the school board would surely dispute any suggestion of favoritism or taking eyes off the mission of educatThey are aware, surely, that the county is watching them in Whats it going to be?
