You're kidding. So close Kevin and Nancy.

Darwin's choice

The insanity continues......

Informed

No, we aren't kidding! Asher is a liar, and cost the district money by filing a frivolous lawsuit that got dismissed. And Bulea already lost once before, we didn't want her then and don't want her now.
Congrats to Slocum and Green! The public cares about principles and appreciated what you did!
Muehlhauser, you better listen carefully to what Slocum and Green have to say, and not rely on your losing cronies to feed you false information.

princedenny

First of all, what about the money Green, Slocum, and SoSUCKe has (and will) cost the district in the witch hunt?

Also, if the public (and school system) cares about principles, why is it that Fox gets fired, but certain teachers / influential coaches are still employed and allowed to have STUDENTS pass love letters to co-workers who they are having an affair with?

How many years ago was that Prince? Lets stay with the present. Old wrongs do not excuse present wrongs-especially when dealing with the "leader" of the district.

princedenny

Regardless of when it was, there needs to be consistency in the school district. The only consistency in Urine (I mean Huron) is that certain people have free will to do whatever they want, and others not so much.

And the most entertaining, disturbing, and SADDEST, part of this entire situation is that said teacher/coach had the AUDACITY to get up and speak at the board meeting about MORALS, and the clueless public gave this person the loudest applause that evening.

Take off the blinders, get a clue, and actually live up to the user name you have on here!!!!!

This is the most obvious example of the hypocrisy there is in that town, and I'm sure there are many, many more.

Here's another example of the hypocrisy, incompetence, AND inconsistency in the district: a certain person in an administrative position was not able to perform his/her job, then was given a new position ONLY because of who their daddy was.

WHAT A JOKE (and it's an even bigger one than the one in Perkins)!!!!

Justme...

That influential coach's boss should have dealt with that situation.

Informed

Exactly. And that was fifteen years ago.

UgtaBkdnMe

Exactly!!! We haven't heard much from Muehlhauser during this election. Let's hope he isn't anything like the non-attorney, Mr. Asher.

SoldOnAcorns

Jetskier...close only counts in hand grenades and horseshoes ! Looks like Cap has a new buddy to keep him company....score remains 3-2....such a disappointment for the Fox supporters :'( The Huron voters that have morals and a conscience have been heard and have prevailed ! Great to see the levy passed also !

Huron_1969

you forgot atomic bombs !

AnyMajDude

The People have spoken, time to move on !!!

betweenlines

^^^agree!

got.integrity

Well said-Fred take your PAC and move on.

jetskier

Yes, soldonacorns, it is great to see the levy passed!

Informed

Does anyone know if EHOVE's levy passed?

Tsu Dho Nimh

Congratulations to Green and Slocum. You have done the right thing and the community supports you.

jetskier

It did in Sandusky County, Informed. Not sure about the rest of the counties, it might be on the website by now.

Informed

I'm confused. Why would Sandusky County vote on EHOVE, since it's for Erie, Huron, and Ottawa counties?

UgtaBkdnMe

I think it is because part of the Bellevue district is in Sandusky County.

Informed

And I think those people would go to Vanguard. But maybe they have the choice between EHOVE and that.

Huron_1969

Congratulations Scott Slocum and Donna Green. Huron sincerely appreciates your commitment to our school system and your fortitude is remarkable.

princedenny

Not ALL of Huron!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SoldOnAcorns

Doesn't need to be ALL of Huron....just a majority ! That's how the voting process works Denny !

princedenny

I know how the voting process works. Just making the point that all of Huron isn't happy about those two nitwits being re-elected. At least The Three Stooges can entertain people a little longer:

SoldOnAcorns

Once again the majority of Huron's residents have spoken....the rest of the immoral Fox clan / supporters have the right to move elsewhere, including yourself if you don't like it !

princedenny

I don't live in Huron, and that is because of the hypocrisy that takes place there.

Tsu Dho Nimh

Since you do not live in Huron, why are you so upset? Huron voters elected who they wanted. It should not impact you at all.

princedenny

I have my reasons.

UgtaBkdnMe

Your wife lost C.B., it's time to move on!

NorthCoastOH

Congratulations to Scott, Donna and Eric. The people have spoken, the choice has been made. Huron would like to move forward, not backward. Now who wants to bet that the PAC will still cause trouble in the months to come? I'm sure that they're already planning some sort of response.

UgtaBkdnMe

I just pray Eric isn't loyal to the PAC that backed him.

Rich524

More of the same in Huron ...It will be interesting to see how many of you are gonna vote yes for a levy that is sure to come soon to cover the costs of all this mess that the majority of the board created. All they had to do was not renew Mr. Fox. His contract was about to expire. Now since the surplus the school system had is gone you know a levy is coming that will cost homeowners in Huron and also you lost one of the best donors in Huron by dragging his name through the mud.He was gonna donate money to McCormick jr high. A new levy is coming soon to cover the costs and I hope all you supporters of Green, Slocum, and Soweicke are ready to pay the taxes and vote for the levy that is sure to come for their poor decisions because they are still the MAJORITY making poor decisions

princedenny

EXACTLY. Sadly, The Three Stooges are still around

Huron_1969

Atta-boy.... keep trying to blame anyone you can except for Fox. When in doubt resort to childish name calling and twisted info

Justme...

So many misstatements, so little time...I'll just tackle one: Fred's contract was NOT about to expire. He had 2 more years. Literally everything you just said is incorrect.

Informed

In addition, they couldn't just not renew his contract without a big mess as well. Better to deal with it and get it done now.

SoldOnAcorns

Sweet Jesus man have you been in Fred's fridge drinking his kool-aid ?

Wahoo4708

How long before Asher sues for a recount?

UgtaBkdnMe

I'm waiting for that to happen, too. $20,000+ should have bought more than 1 seat on the board. We still may have a 3-2 board when it comes to the Fox deal but who knows, maybe Mr. Meuhlhauser isn't as committed to Fred as his Fox bloc. I believe you will see Cap resigning soon due to the OEC mess he got himself into. When that happens, Fox will be nothing but a memory.

princedenny

Nothing but a memory? You'll be eating those words once the lawsuit begins.

Wahoo4708

Btw rich524 you're high. He wasn't going to donate the money!

worddrow811

I chose to not vote because of this travisty of justice.

None of us were there and only the 3 power rangers know what they did to bring about their personal agenda.

Integrity comes with the responsibility of having one's words MATCH one's actions and all of them failed that little test, in my opinion!

srblogger

princessdenny didnt get any sleep last night! get over it pal! I feel very fortunate to have a fine gentlemen like Mr Muratori running the system. I believe he will unlike the past, make the correct decisions when it comes to running the school system. and that big donator out on 250?? Tax abatement = he still pays a big lump sum. Dont be fooled by that foolishness that we lost it.

I like the current make up and attitude of the system. lets lay this bullturkey to rest and move forward >>>

Wa Tu Lo

Fox brought Mr. Nelson into this mess with his stupidity. He owes Mr. Nelson an apology for getting caught and being stupid. As for going to court, bring in the mistress. There is no court in this country, unless they're corrupt, would ever vote in favor of Fox. Keep throwing out those threats about a lawsuit. If that's all you got,your in trouble. Had the school board continued to let Fox run out his contract,the school system would be in worst shape. He would have sold each school bus for a dollar. Him and his buddies garages would look like hardware stores. This would have been done at taxpayers expense. Never in my life will I understand how any person could support an individual for stealing,unless they are of the same mold.

SoldOnAcorns

Speaking of Fox's side dish...I saw her at a Perkins football game this year...this has taken it's toll on her...she has aged 10 years in the last 2 !

Julie R.

Wow ...... now THAT sure was a nasty thing to say!

Princess87

Boy SoldonAcorns that interesting..She doesn't go to the Perkins Football games...anyway why does it matter? Isn't this about Fox? Keep the focus!

SoldOnAcorns

Bull crap she didn't go to a Perkins football game ! She and Fox are what started this entire disaster...so yes she is involved ! Takes 2 to tango there honey ! As for being a nasty thing to say....don't cheat on your spouse and your conscience won't eat you alive (assuming she has one ) ! Julie R that is the first comment I have seen you make that doesn't involve the crooked Eeeerie county courts ! Congrats, you are making progress with the therapy you must be receiving !

Julie R.

Well, if you insist.......

Your nasty comment about Fox's girlfriend, or ex-girlfriend, or whatever she is reminds me of something else I heard through the grapevine. I heard some people in Huron acutually took pictures of that woman with their cell phones when they saw her in a restaurant once. I had to laugh when I heard that. I mean, geez, one would think she was Monica Lewinsky or somebody!

I'm beginning to think ALL of you people in Huron are NUTS. On the other hand, I already know the majority are. As I've said a hundred times over, the trouble-making attorneys and the rest of the dirt-bags that criminally defrauded my mother at the end of her life (with the exception of a snake Lorain County attorney) were ALL from HURON, OHIO.

But don't feel too awful bad because your county public officials are NUTS, too. Auditors that authorize fraudulent transfers of property, recorders that knowingly file fraud documents, a court that gives attorneys and financial institutions two years after an elderly person's death to get everything left from criminally changed contracts out of her name before filing a forged Will, another court that sells fraudulently transferred property at a scam sheriff sale ........

It also looks to me, SoldOnAcorns, that some of you hypocrite Huronites STILL haven't made any progress with the "therapy" you receive at Huron's St. Pete's every Saturday night and/or Sunday morning!

SoldOnAcorns

Keep going to therapy...you just fell off the wagon & relapsed ! What a butthurt life you lead !

Nemesis

Well, what do you expect; you pushed her crazy button. What, do you go around offering beer to recovering alcoholics, too?

Wa Tu Lo

Could it have been the Sandbar? Now that all your money was spent on two lame candidates that didn't make it, you want to talk just about Fox. You people sure dragged a lot of other peoples names in the mud over the last year. I don't feel that they are going to let you off that easy. The Fox posse made a lot of enemies and in your earlier blogs you still kept poking the bear.

Princess87

Acrons..That's right..She didn't go to a Perkins football game. Ha...misinformed again. The disaster is all about Huron and the finances and how things were handled..Keep the focus. She had nothing to do with that situation... just a pawn that Huron exploited to get to Fox.

SoldOnAcorns

Can't make a ho into a housewife...the end !

Wa Tu Lo

Finances and the way things were handled? Wasn't Mr Fox compensated for his mileage each month? So, he was being paid for mileage, by Huron taxpayers dollars, to go see his mistress. How many times did Mr. Fox turn in mileage slips for trips to Fremont and Port Clinton to see his mistress? Over $800 dollars paid to Mr. Fox for those trips. So, the Huron taxpayer was paying Mr. Fox for mileage, and time he should have been working, he was having an affair on our tax dollars.

The way things were handled. I would say,the three school board members were more than likely thinking about the best interest of the students and taxpayer. You can not justify paying a person when they are taking away money from our children's education and taxpayer's hard earned dollars, when that person is raping the system. There had to be a stop to this kind of abusive behavior. Had it continue to go on, more money would have been misspent. Who can predict how long the abuse of taxpayer's dollars would have continue.

donutshopguy

Princess,

"a pawn of Huron to get Fox " What?

Did someone make her be Fred Fox's mistress to get him out of the school system?

This lady put herself in this position and now she has to suffer the consequences of her action.

That's life.

Princess87

You are so not right..get the facts..ask the right questions..make the right people accountable... don't listen to the rumors and lies..enough..move forward..there is an another side

SoldOnAcorns

Wrong ! Lying on her backside is the only side there is ! Her husband shoulda kicked her lying cheating arse to the curb and went for full custody of their children ! Staying to an adulterer is pathetically weak !

Nemesis

Princess, are you saying he raped her?
Sorry, but that game takes two to play.

Princess87

Donutshopguy..They only consequences she has is to deal with her own family. She is well aware of what has been done. Is it her fault that Fox did the things he did with the finances?...She has no idea what Huron was all about and who he really was and what he might of been up to. It a shame that people cast judgemenet.. not sure if they know the real story..or just rumors I know her and her family very well. I am tired of the Huron people trying to use her to get to him.. It is what it is..mistakes were made. Lives were effected. She was clueless to the animosity that Huron had for him.

Informed

None of that matters. She is guilty of using her position, school resources and time (which equals money) to conduct an extramarital affair. I read the emails. And she has consequences to deal with other than her family because she was a public employee. It doesn't matter if Fox was loved or hated by anyone.

Princess87

What are you kidding me.. how many people in school systems use the email as their own private system Really???. I have seen all sorts of things come by public employees email that was inappropraite. You and everyone else who thinks that anyone doesn't use email to communicate to whom ever is living in the dark ages. Is that all you have Ha Ha ..that is too funny...:)

Nemesis

Fine, then Fox should get his job back. You're not a real princess and you can't have it both ways. What's good for the gander is good for the goose. Both chose to dance; both get to pay the piper.

Wa Tu Lo

She is just as guilty as Fox. She misused taxpayer dollars and lied just like Fox did. The only difference is she admitted guilt. Fox hasn't been able to accept the fact or admit he is a criminal and a thief. Soon it will all be over with. It would be nice to get this onto a courtroom and see who lied under oath. Then you will see what you consider rumors are actually the truth. I will never understand why Fox's posse still condones his activities prior to his termination. None of this should had never been swept under the rug.

Princess87

She never admitted any guilt..again misinformed. Guilt for what? She didn't do anything wrong except hurting her family.

Informed

So using district time and resources to conduct an affair isn't anything wrong? She even used her office.
She resigned. She didn't fight it. She was busted and didn't deny it.

SoldOnAcorns

Guilty of being a lying cheating harlot ! Have fun carrying that backpack of guilt & regret the rest of your life !

Julie R.

Once again, SoldOnAcorns, you Huronites are NUTS! You wackjobs aren't happy unless you're starting trouble. My mother's attorneys, the former Huron judges, were NUTS, too ....... but then so are the ones at the Erie County courthouse!

SoldOnAcorns

Obviously you live in Huron and fit right in then cause you are nuttier than a squirrel turd !

Wa Tu Lo

I have the investigation report from Fremont's superintendent, the one where Fox's attorney said he would sue anyone that made it public. It also contains the letter from the person who was cutting the grass that saw them together. I really do not expect you to believe any thing that involves the truth about your golden boy. You believe everyone is "misinformed". I believe you have "tunnel vision". You and the rest of Fox's posse are so "brain washed" you will never believe the truth.

Julie R.

I can't understand why everybody is making such a big deal about Fred Fox. I can't even see what he did that was so horrible compared to all the flat-out crimes that other half-baked Huronites have been getting away with for years and years, thanks to their half-baked buddies at the corrupt Erie County courthouse!

Julie R.

Neither can I understand why a Murray would take Fred Fox's case. After all, it's not like their law firm is going to make millions from it like they do in all those class-action lawsuits that they forever file. I know the Murrays sure won't take cases that involve fraud documents prepared by their half-baked attorney friends and crook financial institutions --- they claim it's a conflict of interest. On the other hand, didn't somebody say the Murrays took Baxter's ferry boat business case? One might have to wonder why that wasn't a conflict of interest.

Princess87

WaToLo~ Only one person had that report initially ..a lawyer..that is the way Huron rolls..did they copy and distribute the report from the ODE that exonerated her.. like they did the with the other report. NO! They found no cause for any discipline. No I am sure that didn't go around that tiny town on the swamp ( oh I am sorry river).. Very shady
