Price's status uncertain

| Thursday, Sept. 17, 2009

Will Lloyd Price be coaching Ringgold's home football opener Friday against Southmoreland?

"You will have to go to the game to see."

That was the answer solicitor Tim Berggren gave when questioned following Wednesday's Ringgold School Board meeting.

The board met in executive session 50 minutes for personnel issues but reported no action was taken.

Asked which employee or employees the board met behind closed doors to discuss, Berggren said nothing would be divulged because of potential litigation.

Price, the school's third-year athletic director and first-year football coach, was suspended last week.

He missed the Rams' 31-28 win at Albert Gallatin with first-year assistant Matt Humbert serving as head coach.

Price, meanwhile, had no comment when asked if he would be coaching this week.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
