Public School Employees. Kane County School District

Updates

  • 09/06/2021 improved sections for Blake, Felish & Cram
  • 07/19/2021 to add Colten Johnson.
  • Updated 07/01/2019 to add Suzie Harris.

Bigotry and/or extremism posted publicly on social media by Kane County School District employees: Kimberly Ford Blake, Terry Blake, Desiree Felish, Alicia Cram, Casey Daley, Suzie Harris, Colton Johnson & Mason Fox(?). As a retired educator, I understand the standards set for school employees in regards to public activity. School personnel should at the minimum be able to process information and be discrete about how they act on information to exclude promoting false information, conspiracy theories, anti-science/public safety, violence, bigotry and extremist groups.

Expel or Reform? In my experience, Casey Daley could use reform efforts, Mason Fox warrants further discussion/evaluation and the others expelled because bigotry & extremism in an education setting can have far-reaching consequences. Reforming Extremists on Hatewatch

Kimberly & Terry Blake

Kim Blake works at the Kane County School District Office as a secretary and her husband, Terry, is a custodian at Kanab Elementary School. Their bigotry/extremism include: LGBTGQ+, Black Lives Matter, Welfare, Democrats, racial equality, science and government. They use false dichotomies, false narratives, misinformation and conspiracy theories. Below are images of their evidence in list form (links do not function) followed by a GoogleSlide show with interactive links


Desiree Felish

Desiree Felish works as support staff at Kanab Elementary School. Her husband, Jeremy L. Felish, is a K9 officer with Mohave County Sheriff in Arizona and they own iRepair in Kanab. Desiree posted a “designed by JWF” decal celebrating police brutality which was featured in the post Kanab’s SM Kanasshole Posts. Desiree is a contributing follower of local extremist FB group “Kanab Patriots” “Kanab Patriots” Recruits and Radicalizes Facebook Extremists.


Casey Daley

Casey is a 4th grade teacher at Kanab Elementary School. There are only two public posts. One promotes false narratives about Biden, conspiracy theory about Pelosi, hatred of any Democrat, misinformation about Trump accomplishments, anti-media and Hollywood…everything in one post and Casey “liked” it. The second promotes efforts to discredit social justice activism by athletes with the “this is what real sports heroes look like”.

Alicia Cram

Alicia Cram posts that she works as a paraprofessional educator at Kanab Elementary School (KES) and owns a photography business, but she is not listed on KES website. Her review of evidence for KURW Hatewatch inclusion is available in an earlier post. Her husband, Colton Cram, is featured in Kane County Sheriff’s Office: Dan Watson, Landon & Colton Cram, Russ Whitaker, her mother Crystal Mognett in Bigotry LGBTQ+ (Part 1 of 3) and father-in-law Kanab Police Chief Tom Cram in Kanab City Police Department.

Alicia’s extremism includes: promoting false narratives, outright lies, support of Stop-the-Steal, minimizing Capitol Insurrection. Alicia has supported FB page “Kanab Patriots” Recruits and Radicalizes Facebook Extremists and their activities including their harassment of residents & businesses supporting Black Lives Matter & characterization of liberals as sick people. Alicia used local FB group Kanab/Fredonia Rant & Rave as a platform for hate to sabotage social justice & police reform efforts and to defend confrontational activity of counter protesters, including Steve Corson who was a Kanab “Patriots” at the Capitol Insurrection and Local Law Enforcement Praise.

Suzie Harris

Suzie Harris is listed as a Kindergarten teacher at Valley Elementary School in Orderville, Utah (Kane County School District).

Context: Suzie’s brother-in-law was killed in the line of duty in 2010. Her support for police is understandable, however, her hard line eternal impact combined with other bigotry is concerning. She had no public posts of Patriotism (military, veterans, law enforcement) since 2014 until the global movement for Black Lives Matter following the murder of George Floyd by now convicted former MN officer Chauvin.

Suzie supports posts by prolific social media extremism posters:

Colten CJ Johnson, Kanab Mayoral Candidate

David Crosby, owner of Crosby Home & Farm, went to DC for Stop-the-Steal turn insurrection.

Mason Fox

Mason is a social science teacher at Kanab High/Middle School. There are no social media posts of bigotry or extremism, just an encounter at a rally which was not enough to draw any conclusion regarding Mason and bigotry or extremism, just a note of attention. Mason approached a demonstrator at a Black Lives Matter Rally and I intervened when that encounter moved to more of a verbal attack on her instead of a conversation when she replied “zero police murders is the acceptable number for me.” I recall that our discussion ended in a civil manner and that I would have liked to have talked more with him in a better setting.

Mason, please email me. If anyone has evidence for Mason (positive or negative) or witnessed the “discussion”, please email me. mgalaria@protonmail.com.

I resided in the Kanab, Utah area from 2009 throughout 2020. I am reformed right, 15 years now, with most family members still far-right. I lived 37 of my 48 years in rural America. I created KURW after I discovered that two people from Kanab who I knew were at the Jan 6th Capitol Insurrection and the continued threat warning from DHS regarding the far-right movement. Studies show new trends in extremist characteristics, feelings of fear/anger/betrayal, an increase in social media recruitment and incitement, and radicalization as quickly as six months. I had a lot of documentation from covering the six months of weekly Black Lives Matter and All Lives Matter and MAGA events in Kanab. I used that documentation, public posts on social media, contribution from community members and outside organizations to create Hatewatch because I feel like that is the best way that I can address the call for awareness.
