I was worried about how the fall was going to go, but Ben Dover told me things are getting better and the season will be fine. I will sleep much better tonight...   Z People are dumb

Mike Arthur submitted fake tapes for his band to play at KMEA. He also worked at Lowes while on the clock at Eastern. Call it what it is! Do not defend this guy's lack of integrity. 

Maybe those assistants found an opportunity to get away from the crazy person they work for...👀

Work "with," definitely not "for." They work "for" the Hardin Co Board of Ed, and are assigned to each building and its principal. 

I know what you were referring to, though 😎

I was told their marching band went from around 125 kids to around 60 something. But I imagine COVID had something to do with it.

I would hope so. The same thing ironically happened in the late 1990's. I think in 1997 they had about 180. In 1998, 112. This was right before JHHS was built. 

 

It takes almost no time with the wrong person to destroy years of progress.

Yes? They’ve both left. Not sure why or where. My source doesn’t know either. Seems odd. 

I was told one took a job in another county, and the other is now an assistant principal.

What I hear is there was a huge drop in the number of students signing up for marching band, although the concert band numbers didn't change much. And then COVID hit, which knocked a few on the fence into the 'not worth the effort' group.

I hope that's not the case. CH always seemed to have a good group of kids and a decent band for a school that historically focused more on their sports teams than their band. Any program faces special challenges with a director change. The impression I get is the 'change' last year was not handled well at the top. Here's hoping lessons were learned and they can bounce back.

It appears that Henderson County just came open the other day. 

 

Any word on Connor Kinmon?

That job is for the HS assistant. Think that person left for the East Hardin middle job, which surprises me, because that is only a 1-year gig as of now. That whole side of Hardin seems to be in such disarray now.

I saw both Ballard Memorial AND Lyon County opened today. Does anyone know what happened?
Who were the directors?

I know Ballard retired a few years ago, idk who filled it. Lyon Co. hired someone with military background but idk what happened there.

Lyon hired a guy named Dr. Otis French. I don't think he realized what he got himself into with Lyon Co. He was  a director of bands at a small college in Ohio beforehand. 

 

Cody Pinson was hired in the summer of 2019 at Ballard Memorial. He is also a member of the 100th Army Band. 

 

 

Who knows what happened in this time. Does anyone know if either Ballard Memorial or Lyon Co were actually having in-person classes or rehearsals?
