This isn’t Charles Gray’s first time serving as an intermediary at a school in Downsville.
He said about 12 years ago, he was sent to “mind the shop” for two weeks after a former principal at Downsville High School was removed.
When he arrived Tuesday on the campus of what is now Downsville Charter School, Gray knew somewhat of what to expect.
“They were elated to see me before,” Gray said, laughing. “And I’m sure most of the faculty and staff that are here today are just fine with my being here now. We want to return the focus to the students and away from the adults.”

Police Juror Skip Russell, voiced his concerns during an interview last week about the proposed quarter-cent sales tax that Sheriff Mike Stone has added to the ballot for April 21.
The proposed sales tax is expected to generate $1.8 million in additional funds per year. Stone has previously said this will be used to cover department technology replacements and upgrades, continuation of prevention services (such as school resources officers and elderly protective services) and a $100,000 deficit from the previous fiscal year. The department’s financial statements show the deficit is in the drug task force fund, which has grown from a $19,196 deficit in 2008 to a $120,027 deficit in 2010. In 2011, the fund balance ended with $20,655.
