    Same old spew from the Greendale School District’s Troll. The school board created Jason and now they ignore him but here he is spewing hatred.

    New Administration, same school board. Same spew of meanness.

    I am not Bill. My name is John and a parent and voter. Jason go back to cutting grass in yards with your lawn mower business.

    And please Jason, stop the capitol letters and exclamation points. Please!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Post Script: Did every get a post card at tax payer expense from the school system today?

        Dear Dinkfester,
        Your posting on August 12th provides a lot of insight into your mind set, character and personal values. You seem to have a number of unresolved anger issues, as evidenced by the name calling, hyperbolic comments and variety of negative comments about groups I am associated with, like the historical society and veterans memorial committee. Recently I joined the GEA and I am volunteering for some of their fund raising activities. Will you now attack that group?
        Respectfully, I suggest your creditably is now seriously eroded and that you could benefit from professional intervention. Give yourself a “time-out” to collect yourself and re-direct yourself into more positive thoughts and actions.
        By the way, notice that I am posting this message with my own name.

          Good for you Bill! Dinkfester just posts negatively on here to work our wonderful citizens up! Like Jeffery said on the 4th, the school board has to put up with his shenanigans. Keep up the great work that you do for this community! And yes, I also use MY NAME!

    When will the school board shut up the Greendale Troll? This guy is a liability to the new regime.

    They created him and they own him.

      OMG, Dinfester!! You endorse Clinton, Inc., which includes liars, cheaters, questionable Foundation w/money laundering, back in the WH.. Read “Crisis of Character” if you want the truth. Otherwise, you are questionable as to your thinking. Greendale’s Hose Tower IS historical, get over it. Your comments are deplorable.

    Sounds like an interesting historical society meeting with information about Greendale’s past. Rather than have newspapers just sit on the shelf, this meeting brings stories to life. The meeting is open and free to the public so lots of curious minds should attend. Another good reason to attend is to look inside the Hose Tower at the renovation progress.
