If you hate Turtleboy, then the Turtlegram and Gazette, particularly Kim Ring and Clive McFarlane, will write a one-sided column, sympathetic in your favor. It doesn’t matter how much of a corrupt, entrenched, villain you are. As long as you’ve got beef with the Turtle, you will have multiple columns written in your defense to protect you from the onslaught of Turtleboy Nation.

Never has that been more evident than it has today in Spanky McFarlane’s columnHe ACTUALLY decided to take the side of Kevin Hayes, Tracy Crowe, and the corrupt administration in the Spencer-East Brookfield School District. He viciously attacked the teachers and students in his column today. And why? Because they reached out to Turtleboy for help when no one else would.

Let’s take a look….

Last Thursday, a fire drill at the David Prouty High School was mischaracterized as a student walkout by a social media blogger. That same blogger, according to Kevin Hayes, chairman of the regional school board, was behind another story “encouraging students to do a walk-out and a sit-in” as part of a protest calling for the superintendent’s resignation.

Yea, we inaccurately wrote that there was a student walkout at David Prouty after a previously reliable source sent us a tweet with pictures that were consistent with a student walkout. Turns out we were fooled. But because we actually have integrity we issued a full retraction. When the Turtlegram makes a critical mistake they make a note of it on page B12. When Turtleboy makes a mistake we write a whole blog about it. That’s the difference between us and them. 

The blogger, according to Mr. Hayes, alleged that the student yearbook had not been paid for, and thus they would not receive them prior to graduation. In fact, the invoice for yearbooks was received on April 12 with a payment due date of April 18, Mr. Hayes said, noting that the payment was processed on Friday.

LIES!!! Blatant LIES!!! That’s what the Turtlegram and Gazette prints. Easily debased LIES!! The invoice for the yearbooks was sent in DECEMBER!!! The invoice they got the other day was a final warning invoice. We SHAMED the district into paying their bills when we blogged about this on April 13. That’s why the payment was processed on Friday. Because we embarrassed and humiliated the district for yet another financial screw up on their end. 

“We are concerned about the safety of our students. We have two school committee members who have had their vehicles vandalized. The superintendent has been followed, and I have been followed.”

HAHAHHAHAHHAHAHA. Oh that’s a good Kevin. Priceless. You’re being followed? No you’re not. You’re making that up because you’re a liar. You also have Turtle on the brain, so you probably think we’re following you around all the time. We’re not. Ya know what he’s talking about right? He thinks we’re stalking him because we got pictures of him doing work on Tracy Crowe’s house in Leicester:

Ya know who sent us those? Parents. Because everyone in town hates this guy. That’s his red truck, and his nephew’s electrical company truck parked in her driveway on several different occasions. Kevin flips homes for a living, and Tracy Crowe was one of his clients. However, he did not pull any paperwork with the town of Leicester for this, which is required by law. So Massachusetts State Ethics laws aren’t the only ones he was violating by doing this.

The best part is that the Spencer-East Brookfield School Committee, of which Kevin Hayes is the chairman, recently gave Superintendent Crowe a glowing evaluation

I swear to God, you can’t make this stuff up. A woman who is in charge of a school district that has been in a state of insurrection for a year now, got a glowing review from a man she is paying money to have flip her house.

Hey Clive, how come you didn’t report about this corruption? How come you haven’t mentioned the fact that State Legislators Peter Durant, Anne Gobi, and Donnie Berthiaume are all well aware of this, but are actively taking part in the cover up? Didn’t think that was newsworthy?

“The suspension of math teacher and former athletic director Charles Fahey, whose oversight of student activities accounts is being investigated, triggered the latest confrontation, in which, according to Mr. Hayes, the teachers union has been using students and the anonymity of social media “to carry water for its leadership.””

I love how the Telegram is once again proving to be Kevin Hayes’ propaganda outlet. Hey Clive, here’s what he forgot to tell you about Charles Fahey – Mr. Fahey turned down Kevin’s wife for the field hockey coaching position, and Mr. Hayes himself for the baseball coaching position. That’s why Fahey was put under investigation. Because he couldn’t be the AD if he was being investigated. And guess who the new AD picked to coach field hockey and indoor track, Clive? That would be Donna Hayes, the wife of Kevin Hayes. Guess how many games those teams won? That would be ZERO. Guess how much money she made in stipend pay? Over $8,000!!!

But why mention these facts? The Turtlegram hates facts. And for the record, we are not doing this for the teacher’s union. We were contacted about this district by a gaggle of parents who were hounding us about it for months before we finally looked into it. Good thing we did, or else the Turtlegram would continue their one-sided reporting.

In addition, Superintendent Crowe has opened another investigation into unpaid invoices from what she termed unauthorized fundraising activities by another staff member.

Oh Spanky, will you ever learn how to do your job? Those “unauthorized fundraising activities” that Crowe is investigating, were actually authorized by the principal at the time. And according to state law, school committees do not approve school fundraisers. Here’s a check a parent wrote that was cashed by the school district for this “unapproved” fundraiser:

Screen Shot 2016-04-13 at 9.05.16 PM

The fundraiser was approved by then Principal David Bachant in May of 2015. And here’s the text from the email from he sent in July of 2015, indicating that all fundraisers previous to that were NOT required to be approved by the School Committee:

From Dave Bachant July 21, 2015 B Bachant,

Jul 21, 2015

Details Good Afternoon Everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your summer vacation and are recharging those batteries. Please read the following protocols that have been put in place effective immediately for the 2015-2016 school year: All fundraisers must be approved by the School Committee or they will not be allowed. No Exceptions. All External doors CANNOT be propped open for any reason. No Union business will be conducted during the normal school day hours of operation. This must be handled outside of the normal School day. Any purchases involving ‘AA’ funds, MUST have prior approval by the principal or they will not be paid. I will continue to update you of any changes going forward. Enjoy your summer with your families,

Dave David A. Bachant Principal David Prouty High School. 

Once again Clive, these are just facts.

I fully understand Mr. James’ responsibility to protect the interests of his membership, but given the district’s financial struggles over the years, it seems to me that it would be a dereliction of the board’s responsibility to turn a blind eye to questions raised by the independent investigations.

LOL. Now all of a sudden Clive thinks that elected bodies shouldn’t turn a blind eye to independent investigations. Which is weird, because he called Michael Gaffney a “slave master” when he didn’t turn a blind eye to questions raised about Mosaic Cultural Complex.

Then finally Clive does what he always does – shits all over teachers, including Mark James the SEBRSD teacher’s union:

“In any case, using a social media bully as his mouthpiece in his battle with the board and school administrators is a disservice to his members as well as to the young people of his school district.”

The social media bully he is referring to is Turtleboy of course. And Spanky is mad that we have taken up their cause. Hey idiot – if Lyin’ Kimmy Ring actually did her job then we wouldn’t have to do it for her. Sorry for supporting teachers. I know you people hate them and all.


Anyway, picking on teachers and students is what Clive does best. Especially when they’re white. My question is, why is the Hanover Theater supporting this garbage? Because they’re paying Clive to write this stuff:

Screen Shot 2016-04-18 at 8.27.04 AM

Too bad. We like the Havover Theater and want to keep doing business there. But the thought of paying Clive money makes us sick to our stomach. If you feel the same way then feel free to contact them and let them know how disappointed you are that they would finance this anti-teacher propaganda. We will be firing off an email to Lisa Condit, Director of Marketing & Public Relations at as soon as this blog is published. Feel free to do the same.



We urge you to support the Turtleboy Sponsors by doing business with them. Without them none of this is possible. Click on any of them to check out their sites or Facebook pages.

    BobnMic,I saw that. I don’t know why it seems like it’s happening all the time now. It use to happen to me only occasionally. Hopefully they get to the bottom of it soon. The comments are as entertaining as the blog most times,and I like the interaction. I don’t follow on Facebook,so this is all I see.

    You keep on suckin the guy’s dick… you posted a story about someone that pleasures himself to race results, you in turn seem to pleasure yourself to high school student social media than anything else. There’s not a doubt in my mind that you have your own agenda. You put so much trash out into the world which isn’t full of actual facts. You’re becoming less and less relevant by covering what you cover and the manner in which you do so.

    Just in from the Telegram: ” The Spencer-East Brookfield Regional School Committee has called an emergency session to discuss a student walkout Friday at David Prouty High School.

    The session will be held 7 p.m. Tuesday at the Wire Village School auditorium.”

    So, SEBRSD citizens, get off of FB and get down to the Wire Village 7PM Tuesday!

      Reddog – I posted a comment about this fucked up shit and then got a fucking condescending reply like I’m some sort of an asshole and should be grateful for viewing this blog from Turtleboy. I still can not believe that actually fucking happened. I was simply asking for help for all of us because this website crashes all of the time.

      I know, we all know, that they’re are several Turtleboys. Who ever this fucking asshole is I hate.

    Nothing much has changed in Mass. with the buddy political connections. Most is done more quietly and careful now. But every once in a while. The hacks will do something, so out-there. One really thinks it is a practical joke at first. Until you learn, it isn’t a joke !

    “LIES!!! Blatant LIES!!! That’s what the Turtlegram and Gazette prints. Easily debased LIES!! The invoice for the yearbooks was sent in DECEMBER!!!”

    Um, the invoice you posted says April, 2016 on it and never mentions “final notice” or “past due” anywhere. Was this info from another one of your “dependable” sources?
