I can't believe that people are still to stupid to not know better then trying to drive through flooded roads and mainly the underpass there on Main Street knowing good and well that they are risking both their cars and their lives. 18 inches of running water can sweep away compact car. If you see water standing water the roadways do not be stupid and risk your life by trying to drive through it. 12 inches of rushing water can take your footing out from under you and risk your life from drowning. 90 to 100 people yearly loss their lives in America in flash floods after trying to drive through rushing water.

It is a shame that this school is working so hard to cover up this story. WHY have the police not been contacted? WHY do they not have an active investigation going? WHY have parents not been given more information in order to be able to talk with their children? There are so many why's and not enough answers. Hopefully, some of these will be resolved soon. Here is what bothers me...if someone makes an accusation of domestic violence, that individual is arrested immediately and the rest of it will be sorted out in court. However, this man was given free access to children. The children were brave enough to come forward to a trusted adult and this man is still walking free. How is that appropriate?

The $115.00 application fee is not right. I took the class on Saturday April 11 and I called the TDOT in Jasper and the lady told me it will be 167.00. Big jump in price...
