    Good Job Nancy. Don’t back down. Don’t let them bully you.

  2. 2 Rita Nov 17th, 2006 at 11:33 pm

    We love you, Nancy. You are an inspiration to all people who see injustice in the world around them. You have shown that doing the right thing is not always easy. Stay strong!!!

  3. 3 Rita Nov 17th, 2006 at 11:41 pm

    Way to go, Nancy. It is abundantly clear that you answer to one higher than Doug Williams. Keep Christ as your guide, and you will have nothing to worry about.

  4. 4 A Friend :) Nov 18th, 2006 at 2:06 am

    Mrs. Walsh, I am inspired by how much courage you had to stand up against Dr. Williams. This website, which seeks to help Dr. Williams, has stooped to posting rude “Editor’s Comments” in your biography only because there is nothing that is honestly wrong with your decision. Be proud and stand strong. I’m counting on you, and you are speaking for me.

    I don’t understand how you can say that Nancy Walsh did the right thing. If Dr. Williams actually did something wrong enough to lose his job over…will someone PLEASE tell me what he did. Why don’t you come to the next board meeting and tell me, since the majority of the board will not say why.
    Do you believe adding this vote after the board adgenda went out and not including the other 3 board meetings on what their adgenda was until that morning was the “Christian thing to do?” Sounds to me like they knew they were not doing the right thing.

  6. 6 Perry Teacher Nov 19th, 2006 at 9:18 pm

    To bring religious sentiment into this mess is silly. One definition of the word “christian” is “Christ-like” I have seen nothing Christ-like in Mrs. Walsh’s actions. I, of course, do not know what is in the woman’s heart BUT I do know that her actions are very hypocritical. She talks about questionable spending in regard to a Twp. employee that went to Chicago (or somewhere) ….. yet has no problem wasting our Twp. dollars by voting for the hiring of a much more expensive attorney for the school board AND voting for Dr. Williams to be placed on PAID administrative leave. I do not get it. These four board members behave as if they are not accountable to anyone.

  7. 7 blockhart Nov 20th, 2006 at 11:42 am

    No elected offical has the right to threaten, bully, etc. While taking advantage of a powerful position may not necessarily be illegal, it is immoral. Glad to see someone has had the courage to stand up to this character. Now we know what boardmembers have been and still are on Doug’s payroll.

  8. 8 PM student Nov 20th, 2006 at 5:04 pm

    It took a heck of a lot of courage for Mrs. Walsh to do what she did. I know that she is doing what she set out to do, which is to always do the right thing, regardless of what people might think. My family and I believe whole-heartedly that these four ladies are doing what is best for the children of this township, and for that, we thank you, Nancy! :)

  9. 9 Admin Nov 20th, 2006 at 7:49 pm

    To PM Student:

    So if Nancy thought it was the right thing to single-handledly bring down everything that had been built in this township in 13-years down to nothing with one vote, that’s the right thing?

    Is it the right thing to tarnish the township in such a way that will lower the home values of everyone because the school district is in a downward spiral with no plan for recovery?

    Is it the right thing for Nancy to have severed the support between teachers and the superintendent that is unheard of in most school districts? Many of those teachers who will now have no reason to stay in a township that doesn’t respect their voice or their actions towards building an education system that’s the best thing for our children?

    Was it the right thing to be concerned over questionable spending amounting to some room service charges and sodas, but not caring about the hundreds of thousands of dollars that her actions are going to cost the taxpayers?

    Were all of those things the “right thing”?

  10. 10 Beth Shipley Nov 20th, 2006 at 8:21 pm

    Why are you so concerned abou a $70 bill by a township employee on an educational trip when you and the board will be spending thousands of dollars to hire and utilize a new attornery, buy out Dr. W’s contract, and look for a new superintendent? How can you justify this?

    Please consider working with a mediator to resolve differences with the board and Dr. Williams.

    Reply to “Admin”

    First of all Nancy didn’t “Single-Handedly” do anything, it took 3 more votes to make the “Majority”.

    It is impossible for the board to do the job that they were elected to do when they are trying to deal with someone that is does NOT have any intentions of being a “TEAM” Player.

    Perhaps he just has a problem with “Strong” Woman?????

    Did you ever think that maybe this will all end out to be the best thing that has ever happened to Perry Township in the last 13 years? This is part of the BIG problem……too many thought Doug walked on water! They could have put him on leave WITHOUT pay you know? I for one think the school board was mighty generous to the man! He had the option of “resigning” on the morning of November 11th….I believe his response was “My attorney will be in touch with your Attorney”. Again, showing that he is NOT willing to work with our Elected School Board.

    I’ll be anxious to see what the feelings of the Teachers and Admin. are when the investigation has been completed.

    To Nancy…. Stay Strong & Hold your Head High. We need you here in Perry Township as do our chidren!!

  12. 12 Admin Nov 23rd, 2006 at 10:42 am

    Kodie, my comment about “single-handedly” doing something was more along the lines of if one-person decided to jump off a cliff and said it was right would you follow. Of course she didn’t single-handedly make this decision on the board. She did need three other people to follow her. And follow her is exactly what I think they did. Susan and Rubie have been on the board for two years already and just approved Dr. William’s renewal contract. I haven’t seen an intelligent or original thought come out of Barbara Thompson’s mouth yet. I believe Nancy Walsh is a very intelligent and capable person, I just think in this situation she was personally embarrassed and offended that Dr. Williams stood up to her because he knew her intentions weren’t in the benefit of the township, but for personal gain and agenda.

    In your other comment, I’m not sure who you’re referring to as not being a “TEAM” player. If it’s Dr. Williams, I think his team has been the administrative staff he’s put together and the support he’s gotten from the teachers and many of the students we’ve heard from in this forum. He’s a TEAM player for the larger team at hand and the one that has more to lose by the efforts of this smaller 4-person group.

    I seriously doubt Dr. Williams has any problem with a “strong” woman. From many of the stories I’ve heard, and I think this is why I guess the “silent majority” don’t like him, is that he won’t back down from anyone that stands in opposition to improving schools. Whether that’s Nancy Walsh or any other person male or female.

    I don’t believe that we’re at the precipice of the “the best thing that has ever happened to Perry Township in the last 13 years?”, why do I think that? Because of the overwhelming support of the community and teachers and students. Thirteen years ago this township was in a shambles because the superintendent didn’t want to work with teachers or really improve anything. There was absolutely no team work there and Dr. Williams built up the school district from nothing to Money Magazine Top 100 school district, and has garnered the support of the vast majority of teachers behind him in the process. That is unheard of and we’ll see how it all turns out if you think you’re right.

    Lastly, if my employer just renewed my contract for three years and then came to me a few months later and asked me to resign. I’d ask for just cause and reasons and I’d want it all in writing. If they didn’t want to respond to that request, then you’d better bet my next comment would have been to let the lawyers settle it. If the four board members are truly behind their actions, then they should have put him on administrative leave without pay. If I was as concerned as they say they are and he’s not doing his job, then there’s no way I’d give him money while we sort it out.

  13. 13 another concerned parent Nov 23rd, 2006 at 9:12 pm

    Why do we keep hearing people say that they’ll “be anxious to see what the feelings of the Teachers and Admin. are when the investigation has been completed”? What do people know that they aren’t telling? What is all the secrecy? I would be happy to have as much info as possible so I can make an intelligent and informed decision as to what I want to support. Why is there all of this discussion of “things” nobody but three members of the school board know? Or four members? Why all the drama? Let’s just get it all out in the open. If Dr. Williams has done something reprehensible that warrants his dismissal, then let’s hear it. I can’t help but think that the longer this goes on, the thinner the ice the accusers are skating on. I think they thought they could get this done without a whimper from the public, and they are seeing how very wrong they are.

  14. 14 PM student Nov 23rd, 2006 at 11:30 pm

    To Kodie: You are so right! I couldn’t agree more!

    To Admin: The only way this situation could raise property taxes is if Dr. Williams decides he will demand that much money. It is up to him.

    We’re behind you, Nancy!

  15. 15 Perry Parent Nov 24th, 2006 at 4:27 pm

    We are NOT behind you, Nancy.

  16. 16 Richard Tuber Nov 25th, 2006 at 1:15 pm

    To another concerned parent:

    This is not the place to get information to base your judgement, I suggest that you start with the meeting on monday night.

    To Admin: Congrats on your 100,000 hit to the website. Why only 380 votes on your poll? Why only 350 for support? This isn’t the we support the board website. This should tell you something. There have to be at least 50 staff members in each elementary school. Times that by 11 elementary schools. You should have at least 550 votes for The good Doctor. Then add in 400 more for the academies, middle, high schools and RISE. Over 1000 votes not even a third of teachers have voted.

    To the public: I am concerned for the children, NOT Dr. Williams and NOT the Board.

    To all PEA Members: I am completely ashamed of you and your organization.

    To insinuate that the District is going to be set back 10 to 20 years, is totally insane.

    You are entitled to feel sympathy for Dr. Williams, as most do. You are NOT entitled to sabotage the childrens right to an education.

    I need to know the following from Teachers and School administrators?

    Did the book company that we rent our books from Repo, them tuesday morning?

    Did the technology company that we get all of our computers and projectors from, Repo them on tuesday morning?

    Did IPL shut off the lights in our schools tuesday morning?

    Did the pencil sharpner company repo the pencil sharpner on tuesday?

    Did you show up and give 100% to my student and every other student that attended class on tuesday and wednesday?

    Unfortunately the the answers to all of the above is NO. Even the last one. I am not saying that every teacher did not give 100%, but there are some that have fallen into the propoganda and can’t see straight.

    Insubordination is enough to fire someone. That has been brought up by the board.

    Threats to someones personal safety is enough to fire someone. That has been brought up.

    Misappropriation of funds is enough to fire someone. That has been brought up.

    Now they are investigating if any of this occurred.

    Dr. Williams has not been fired, as of this blog. Will he be fired? I am not sure. If he did any of the above, then he should be.

    This is a personality issue. How many of you actually has loved every boss you ever had? Bosses are a pain in the butt. But, you still do what they ask. Cause they sign the checks. Dr. Williams has bosses, he has to report to the board. Contrary to some board members beliefs, ask Ms. Houchins WHO’S THE BOSS?

    If I didn’t give my boss my receipts for 7 weeks after my trip, she might think I was padding my expense report, too. I only have 2 weeks after I return to turn them in.

    Dr. Williams has done great things in Perry Township. Thanks Dr. Williams, and they will be a solid foundation to build upon in the future. With or without him.

    I think that we all need to get control of our emotions and voice our concerns in a civilized manner. No more name calling. No more belittling people in opposition of our beliefs.

    If you choose to talk at the board meeting tomorrow share a story in your “lunch room voice”, and say who you support.

    And I hope that it doesn’t come to a slug fest.

    When I speak tomorrow, I will be speaking on behalf our my children, my neighbors children, my childrens friends and every other student in this district.

    Is this in the best interest of our children? That should be the most important question in your mind.

    And some of you thought your vote doesn’t count? I very well could have had you taken the time to do it?

    P.S. I don’t need to know where I misspelled something or used the wrong tense. My mind moves alot faster than my fingers. If you can’t understand what I am saying then, you wouldn’t if I used correct grammar.

  17. 17 Perry Resident Nov 26th, 2006 at 12:34 am

    To Richard Tuber -
    Of course our votes count …… and had any candidates win who had campaigned on removing Williams, then I would agree with you. But none of them did so stop selling that softsoap that Mrs. Walsh is selling. She keeps saying that elections matter. Once again - that is true BUT candidates should be upfront and honest about their intentions. If they are and still win ….. then no one could complain. Otherwise, some elections are just a sophisticated hijacking.

  18. 18 Richard Tuber Nov 26th, 2006 at 10:51 am

    To Perry Resident,

    Hello Neighbor, yes I could be right next door. That’s what makes this even more heart breaking. I am not selling anything, I am merely trying to get people to look and listen to what is happening to this community, the one that we share.

    I voted for Nancy Walsh, Gayle Houchins, and Jo Ellen Buffie that sit on the board. I can tell you for everyone that I voted for the last 10 elections. I am a concerned parent.

    I teach my children responsibility. If you think this was a premediated attack you are incorrect.

    Nancy was asking for information that she was entitled to ask for. Her employee was insubordinate. Do I think he should be fired for that NO. He should have GOT ISS which he is presently serving.

    Dr. Williams has NOT been fired yet.

    Why do we consistantly make excuses for high profile people in our society?

    Athletes don’t have to play by the rules they are always getting a slap on the wrist for things that would put us in jail.

    Politicans get the same special treatment. Why? It is hard for me to give Dr. Williams compassion when he doesn’t feel that he has to follow the same rules as all other employees have to follow.

    Don’t get me wrong. I think Dr. Williams has done great things here.

    But, He didn’t come up with Edison’s program, just a way to get it into our schools. He did not come up with the HI Tech high school, just a way to implement it here.

    Dr. Williams has surrounded himself with great people. Are these people no longer great?

    Dr. Williams has had great visions and shared them with our teachers and administrators, are they no longer great visions?

    Our job as a community is to rally behind who ever is our school chief and force our teachers and administrators to continue to forge ahead.

    I for one will be a BUILDER not a destroyer of this community. What will you be?

    P.S. I am tired of picking up your leaves, that blow into my yard……..

  19. 19 PM student Nov 26th, 2006 at 10:54 am

    These ladies won because of who they are, not what votes they would promise. Why is everyone so cynical? Perhaps these ladies didn’t run on the platform of ousting Williams because they didn’t have that intention! This talk of grinding axes, hidden agendas, and personal vedettas - it’s all cynical speculation. You may think I’m naive, but I think it’s foolish to jump to such conclusions.

  20. 20 Chicago Professional Nov 26th, 2006 at 8:12 pm

    It’s obvious who PM Student is. You might as well sign your name if you are this passionate about this woman.

  21. 21 Perry Resident Nov 26th, 2006 at 8:16 pm

    Mr. Tuber,
    Thank you for the moment of levity. I will try to do better about the leaves BUT first you need to return my rake you borrowed.

  22. 22 Perry Resident Nov 27th, 2006 at 2:05 am

    OK. I’ll bite. Who is PM student? A daughter of Nancy Walsh? Even if that is true - so what? Good for her for sticking up for her mom. Her mom is causing lots of problems for our Twp. but still ….. if that was my mom. I’m sure I would think she was doing a great job, too. If PM student is not NW’s daughter? Then I give up. No matter who she is - I still stand by my earlier post “wishing her nothing but the best in the future and with her studies”
    One bit of advice ……. she should probably spend more time hitting the books and not getting caught up in things she might not fully understand.

  23. 23 Concerned Parent Nov 27th, 2006 at 11:23 pm

    I have too many concerns to state them all, just know that as a Perry Parent, I am in full support of Dr. Williams. I understand that there are many out there in support of Nancy Walsh, my hopes are that people will step back, take a good look at the real reason for making the right decision….the children of Perry Township.

  24. 24 A Friend :) Nov 28th, 2006 at 11:58 pm

    Regardless of opinions, I’m upset that we have adults who are shaming students on here. What a great educational opportunity for kids–go to board meetings, speak your minds, be mature, and then have adults react like 5 year olds.

  25. 25 Ken Nov 29th, 2006 at 12:26 pm

    Mr. Tuber,

    Thank you for your input and thought. I only have a few questions regarding your comments and I will attempt to address them below:

    1. If you feel this website is not the place to gather information, why did you come here?

    2. You ask why only 350 support Dr. Williams, per the webiste poll. I feel you need to look at the other numbers as well. Why only 30 (at the time I wrote this) do not support Dr. Williams????? What about the 23 that need more info?????

    3. Of course life will go on and the lights will continue to burn while Dr. Williams is gone, but you fail to address the morale issue. Abrubtly ousting ANY leader causes morale to dip and causes people to question motives. Follow proper procedure and let the FACTS come out and morale does not take such a big hit.

    4. I agree insubordination, threats and missappropaiton have been brought up by the board, but lets be HONEST, by only 4 board members. If those 3 issues are legitimate issues and concerns then why not inform the other 3 board members on the day the decision was made to place Dr. Williams on paid leave???? If those issues really do exist, don’t you think the other 3 board members would have voted with the majority?????

    5. You state an investigation is taking place. I question that and I question how accurate or thorough it will be and here is why. The majority of the board would not consider or entertain mediation on Monday evening. By not doing so do you believe that such an action represents one in which will not result in the firing of Dr. Williams???

    6. I am glad to hear that you teach your kids responsiblity; we do the same and I know of many parents who do as well and I commend all of them. However, we also teach our kids to not jump to a conclusion and to try and base a decision of good information and facts. I am sorry to say that regarding Dr. Williams the facts that we have been provided may be cause for a repremand, but do not warrant paid administrative leave without the option for mediation.

    I know that you will probably disagree with me and that is fine, but I am of the opinion that all of the pieces of the puzzle do not fit together and I want to know WHY!!!! You have some great points, but many that I feel require follow up questions and additional information.


  26. 26 Ken Nov 29th, 2006 at 1:13 pm

    Mr. Tuber,

    Since I am subject to making mistakes as well, I realized I failed to make one last point. If you go back to the school board minutes of June 26, 2006 you will see as public record that the board voted to renew the contracts of the Superindendent, Assoc Super and Asst Super. That in of itself is not a big deal, but what is a big deal is that 2 members of that board and the current board, Mrs. Adams and Mrs. Alexander, voted to renew those contracts. The vote to renew the contracts was 7 in favor 0 against. So I will ask you, what has changed so drastically in 5 months???

    At the board meeting Monday evening Mrs. Adams said that she has been subject to Dr. Williams “abusive” behavior for 2 years. If that is the case, WHY DID YOU VOTE TO RENEW HIS CONTRACT??????

    Allow me to offer an answer. If it looks like a fish, swims like a fish, and smells like a fish, guess what. It is a fish!


  27. 27 Julie Smith Dec 4th, 2006 at 9:55 pm

    I have one question. If these board members are so confident and sure they are right, why are they being secretive, vague and downright illegal in their attempts to take over the school board? Let the voters who put them there (I believe that makes us “their” boss)decide the fate of Dr Williams based on an open discussion and forum like the law requires. Maybe we should hold them “insubordinate” to the voter who put them in office and begin a recall election.

  28. 28 Let's Think About This Dec 5th, 2006 at 12:06 am

    With regard to your comment “don’t you think the other 3 board members would have voted with the majority?”…as I noted in another post earlier this evening, I’d be very interested in finding out when any of the other three board members EVER voted against Dr. Williams on anything. I’d be willing to bet it has not been very often…

  29. 29 Ken Dec 5th, 2006 at 3:54 pm

    To Let’s Think About This

    Think about this. Why did the current board president vote in favor of renewing Dr. Williams contract just 5 months ago? In addition, why didn’t she make any comments on his review regarding his “abusive or intimidating” behavior she referred to at the last board meeting. She was 1 of the board members who had input into that performance evaluation. Finally, if she had been enduring “abusive or intimidating” behavior, as she stated, for the past 2 years why are we just now hearing about it??? Very interesting, don’t you think?

  30. 30 Let's Think About This Dec 5th, 2006 at 10:23 pm

    Have you see his review? I haven’t. How do you know what was or was not commented upon in his review?

  31. 31 Ken Dec 5th, 2006 at 11:33 pm

    No, I have not seen his review. But the board has admitted that his last review was above average in most areas and excellent in some areas. That being the case, it still does not explain the actions of current the board president. If she had been been enduring “abusive” or “intimidating” behavior, why only now are we hearing about it????? Why did she vote to renew his contract if she had been enduring this “behavior” for so long?? The sum of the parts does not equal the whole!

  32. 32 Ken is Right Dec 6th, 2006 at 10:39 pm

    There is no explanation as to why Mrs. Adams voted to renew his contract just a few months ago. Why did Mrs. Alexander also vote for his renewal? ABOVE AVERAGE and EXCELLENT is good enough for me and that is how Adams and Alexander evaluated Williams just five months ago. Throw common sense out the window, folks. We are dealing with some funny business here.

  33. 33 Denise Dec 10th, 2006 at 2:04 pm

    Have you walked in her shoes?

  34. 34 I'd need boots Dec 10th, 2006 at 11:27 pm

    I couldn’t possibly walk in her shoes! I’d need boots! What with all the mud slinging that has been taking place!

    Funny how the “ferocious four” keep boasting about their ’silent majority’! Just before the last school board meeting, I received a voice mail from a woman who is merely an acquaintance BEGGING me to come to support Nancy Walsh and the other poor women who have “finally done what is right”! She claimed that poor Nancy has been through SO MUCH with all of this, and that even her friends, neighbors, and members of her own church have treated her poorly over the situation. The woman claimed that they were trying to get as many people to show up in support in order to “counter” the Williams-supporters! The woman went on to ask that I try to get others to come in support of their little group, as well!

    First, I laughed to myself that this woman obviously doesn’t know me at all! This woman had no idea that I had attended the last several board meetings in support of Dr. Williams!!

    Secondly, I laughed because their little group is trying to muster up some supporters to prove their vast support from ther community, yet we all noticed that they barely could fill even three rows at the meeting! Where were your silent majority, Mrs. Walsh and Mrs. Adams? The group that you so frequently boast about? You boast that “69,000 voters” support your decision, but even with enlisted help, you can’t get 69 people to show up!! Face it!! Your support is dwindling!

    On the other hand, there is strength in numbers!! And folks, our numbers are growing!!

    So, Mrs. Adams, Mrs. Walsh, Mrs. Thompson, and Mrs. Alexander,…
    fasten your seatbelts, ladies! It’s gonna be a bumpy ride! The Williams crew is getting stronger, and we’re not about to back down! We will be at EVERY board meeting from here to heaven, if need be! Right is right, and wrong is wrong! We will not give up!!

  35. 35 Stacy Ray Dec 11th, 2006 at 11:49 pm

    Why must you be so hateful? Right is right, wrong is wrong, and hate is hate. I feel so sorry for you.

  36. 36 RSM Dec 12th, 2006 at 1:05 am

    Dear Stacy,

    We aren’t being hateful. We are only passionate about the injustice that is being done. We do not care for the way some of the board members speak to other board members, or the way they treat members of the meetings. We do not care for their rude behavior during the meetings, or the lies they have spoken. We do not appreciate that they have ignored the people who voted them into their positions and that they show a blatant disregard for them.

    If you look deep enough, you will see that it is Susan Adams, Nancy Walsh and Barbara Thompson’s hate of a man that has this township in turmoil and disarray.

  37. 37 Former PMHS Student Dec 18th, 2006 at 9:24 pm

    Mrs. Walsh, I cannot believe you caused all of this. I understand that you wanted changes made to the school system (e.g. the placement of a new superintendent) but you carried it out in a way that was back-stabbing, immature and childlike. Even someone in support of Walsh should be disgusted with her actions.
    Grow up.

  38. 38 Reply to Stacy Dec 19th, 2006 at 9:36 am

    No, Stacy! It’s called righteous indignation! Not hate! Were you at the board meeting last night?? Did you hear the venom in Mrs. Walsh’s voice? She wanted to blame the public for what happened to her son at school. It was completely irrelevant, not to mention the fact that it all STARTED because her son had done something WRONG to get into TROUBLE!! She skated over that issue! It IS too bad if anyone is treating her children poorly because of this issue, but I ASSURE you that her children have treated mine poorly for YEARS without just cause!! It is true that children often suffer because of the actions of their parents. This is true in many different situations, and it is not new. WAAAYYYY back in Bible times, it was written that children suffer because of the sins of their parents. So, board members that are crying out that their children are suffering need to realize that they put their children in that position. Is it right? No. But it just happens. It is true of anyone who puts themselves in the public eye, especially when they act in conflict with what the public desires. If it is true that the silent majority are on their side, then it would seem that the school would be flooded with students in support of their children, but you know and they know that it simply isn’t true. There IS no silent majority!

    Did you hear the nasty things Nancy said at the meeting? She angrily berated the public, yet no one was allowed to speak in response to her charges! Susan just LOVES to ding that little bell whenever she disagrees with what someone has to say. Yes, hate IS hate! And it’s obvious that the gang of four hate Dr. Williams for personal reasons and want to use their positions to fulfill their personal vendetta.

    (I agree, Stacy. There is hate on here, and some just refuse to admit how pathetic they are.)

    How dare you speak about Nancy Walsh and her son when you clearly don’t know what you’re talking about. He did not get in trouble!!!!! Way to debate on an issue when you don’t know the facts. You really didn’t seem to listen to what she said at the meeting. It was not that her son had been mistreated. It was that someone deliberately and unlawfully informed Dr. Williams of the situation. It was manipulative, and it was a tactic to get Nancy to chang her mind. More intimidation from this group! If you can’t see the corruption in that, then I don’t know what to tell you.

    Oh, and it doesn’t sound like you are on a personal vendetta at all. Who are you anyway?

  40. 40 Excuse me.... Dec 19th, 2006 at 2:37 pm

    Dr. Williams is STILL the Superintendent of Perry Township and has the right to know what is going on in our township. Don’t believe everything you heard from Nancy last night during “comment time.” The truths are already coming out today and she will be exposed for the lies she spoke.

  41. 41 Anthony Karushis Dec 19th, 2006 at 3:06 pm

    To unbelievable:

    While I agree with you that he did not get in trouble. (Yes, I listen). I want to point out a fact that Nancy mentioned and you are thinking about.

    Dr Williams expressed his concern for her CHILD.

    I seriously doubt he called whoever told him about the situation to get some dirt. Whoever called him was in the wrong, BUT since it happened he felt obligated to make sure the child was ok.

    Does that sound like someone who doesn’t care about ALL the children? Even those that have parents that he probably dislikes? (Notice I use the word “probably” since I don’t knw this for a FACT).

    Please, please people, listen. Make your judgements on facts not emotions. If you don’t have enough facts, demand more information!!

  42. 42 Christy Dec 19th, 2006 at 8:16 pm

    I keep asking for facts and I don’t get them. Lets also remember Dr. Williams from I heard did not call Nancy she called him and that is when he expressed his concern. All I want are the facts, I don’t believe there are any that warrant what they have done or we would have heard them instead of the stories trying to get our pity. Noticed how Nancy claims that Dr. Williams is difficult to work with and he is a bully etc. yet she can’t see that we are only seeking the truth, and support Dr. Williams. What did she call us? Followers, If I was a follower I would not be demanding answers, from the silent minority (the gang of four). I find it hard to believe that DR Williams has been in his position for years and nothing came about until now, I know that there are not a community of people, teachers and board members from the past boards that would let Dr. Williams bully them and get away with it. Why don’t people really see what is going on, why after more then 10 years does it take 3 women that were elected in and all of the sudden there is chaos. They claim that the majority never said anything because they were bullied and abused, where are they now they don’t have anything to worry about if they come forward wouldn’t the gang of 4 protect them? See everyone they have nothing, there is nothing to protect any one from and I can’t honestly believe that he could serve ten years as a superintentant and be that big of a bully and no one would say a thing come people get real!! You don’t think that if he had done something that bad he wouldn’t have stepped down by now,”now that the gang of 4 is on to him” he has nothing to hide and in the end the dirt will be on the gang of 4, where will they be then? out of a job? One can only hope.

  43. 43 UNBELIEVABLE Dec 19th, 2006 at 11:48 pm

    To Excuse me,

    I do believe what Nancy Walsh tells me. Shame on your for calling her a liar. You evidently don’t know her at all.

    To Anthony,

    I don’t believe Dr. Williams wanted dirt. I think that there are people in this township who do, however. And I don’t think this is the first time that they have broken the law and bullied to make a statement or make a change. I just want to point out that this is the type of unlawful, under-handed, petty behavior that many people resort to. It may or may not have been Dr. Williams’ fault in this circumstance, but these are his biggest supporters we’re talking about. Anthony, thank you for stating your argument logically and in a calm manner. I agree that it should be about the facts. The rumors and unwarranted accusations that many go off of only serve to damage citizens on all sides. I commend your desire for the facts, and I would suggest that you contact Nancy Walsh (if you have not already) for some answers to your questions.

  44. 44 Truly Unbelievable Dec 20th, 2006 at 12:27 am

    Let me get this straight. You want us to contact Nancy Walsh to get answers to why she voted to place our superintendent on paid leave? Once again, an example of people wanting to do things backwards. Mrs. Walsh should be the one explaining her actions to her constituents. By the way, Mrs. Walsh has never returned a single email of mine. Nor has she answered my questions when i ask her at board meetings. Please stop “sticking up” for your friend and look at this objectively. Mrs. Walsh might be a good friend to you. I imagine she probably is or you would not take the time to post on here in her defense. But being a good pal, does not make one a good leader. She is truly do great harm to our schools.

  45. 45 Behavior 101 Dec 20th, 2006 at 1:22 am

    To Excuse me,

    It’s now Wednesday…..I’m waiting for the “FACTS” on Mrs. Walsh’s “Lies” from Monday night……you stated that the “Truths” were already coming out and she would be “Exposed” for her “Lies”.

    Please respond, I’m curious to hear what you have found in your investigation.

  46. 46 Anthony Karushis Dec 20th, 2006 at 8:09 am

    To unbelievable,

    I have tried repeatedly to contact Nancy Walsh. My first letter to all the board members is actually posted on this site somewhere. (it was one of the first postings)

    I have never recieved a response from any of the four board members. I have only received a response from Ms Buffie and Ms Houchins when I sent a letter to all board members.

    I would very much like to talk to Nancy Walsh but she apparently doesn’t want to talk with me.

  47. 47 vague secretive name Jan 2nd, 2007 at 1:59 pm

    I’ve never posted here, I’ve only seen what’s in this post. I look here because I’m interested to see what’s going on.

    It seems if one want unbiased facts, this is not the place.

    All of you (both sides) are just stacking bitching upon bitching.

    I don’t want to hear your facts, because most likely your facts aren’t facts.

    How about everyone just shut their mouths, do their jobs, and see what crazy insane perdicaments this board will get themselves into, if any.

    …Then you can publicly ridicule them. Last time I checked, it isn’t illegal to fire someone…

    …And I’m never posting here again, because I really don’t care what you have to say.

  48. 48 Admin Jan 2nd, 2007 at 2:39 pm

    To Vague, there seems to be at least 10 different people in your household or on your computer that have posted here before. Maybe you should talk to them about what’s going on.

  49. 49 Confused Jan 3rd, 2007 at 7:57 am


    I really don’t think you should employ such tactics as you are with your references to people’s IP addresses.

    You don’t say IP address above and many people not as savy might get really paranoid when they read a response from you like the one above. I can only believe this is what you want to instill in them.

    Who cares if the user changed their name? Have you called out people from both sides? I am betting you have only scared off opposition to Dr. Williams.

    I am waiting to hear from the Board at some future date, which I am sure will come before I make such a solid stance either way. I don’t know how anyone can take a side when all they know is one side. Just because the Board has not gone public yet doesn’t mean they do not have a side and perhaps some facts that might change things.

    I was always taught not to jump to conclusions.

    I do not like the attitude and process the Board has taken thus far. However, as this thing drags on, I see merit to what people say based on the actions and words of those in support of Williams. I am just waiting.

  50. 50 Admin Jan 3rd, 2007 at 12:51 pm

    Confused, checking IP addresses is the only method I have right now of validating people’s comments. I originally wanted to only allow comments to be posted from people who would share their actual name and a legitimate e-mail address. After thinking through that route for both issues, I realized that someone should be able to put “Anonymous” or even use a variety of pseudonyms instead of their real name.

    Regarding you questionning of me calling out people from both sides. I have actually edited more comments from pro-Williams supporters than from anti-Williams supporters. My best explanation for this is I personally hold them to a higher level of accountability. Aside from the recent changes I mentioned in this post, I’ve let anti-Williams posters pretty much post whatever they want aside from bold cursing and other foul language. Even to the point of letting them post accusations involving other private citizens who have then contacted our group concerned that their names were brought up on our site without their permission and without all the facts.

    I have yet to see examples of a pro-Williams visitor posting comments giving multiple screen names and/or e-mail addresses coming from the same IP addresses. They may change their screen names, but they’ve always provided the same e-mail address which has always been a valid one when I’ve checked. I’ll look closer in my records, but with the information I have now, that information true to the best of my knowledge.

    To Editor’s Comment below Nancy Walsh’s pic…

    I emailed Nancy and Barbara as to why their bios weren’t up on the school website. They have both written them. And they had copies that they emailed to me. I’m sure you will all rip them apart when you read them, as you have ripped apart everyone elses’s in some way shape or form who do not agree with you, but nevertheless, it is the school administration who told them that they would advise against putting their biographies up “at this time”. So ask the school administration (the IT members) why they refuse to put that information up. Instead of again, slandering them as you do at every given opportunity.

  52. 52 Reason Apr 23rd, 2007 at 4:41 pm

    Simple question.. Why do people on both sides personally attack people who disagree with them? Isn’t intelligent dialog without name calling, insults, etc more beneficial? Or is this just a chance to show our kids and the world we are all small people?

    Please all grow up and be civil!

  53. 53 David Oct 5th, 2007 at 11:00 am

    Perry Schools are being run just like the city of Indianapolis. Both need an overhaul in leadership and I hope the community has enough brains and balls to do it. Still waiting for proof of Williams’ wrongdoing that warranted this expensive campaign to oust him - at our expense.
