Huron board fires back at Fox conspiracy claim

A faction of Huron school board members are firing back at fellow board member Kevin Asher's claim about a grand conspiracy against embattled superintendent Fred Fox.

Board member Kevin Asher and attorney Patrick Murray, who represents Fox, have previously filed court documents accusing the majority of the board members of holding a personal vendetta against Fox.

In court documents filed this past week, however, Fox's opponents said any notion of a conspiracy theory is not only false, but also irrelevant.  

"Asher's brief includes more than a dozen pages of irrelevant, speculative, false and defamatory conspiracy theories masquerading as 'facts,'" stated documents filed by Drew Legando, attorney for board members Tim Sowecke and Donna Green. "Its outlandish claims have nothing to do with the issues presented by the motions pending before the court."

Ready. Set. GO!

I look for Jerry Springer to air the next board meeting. Bring in the lost lover and Fox's wife for a cage match.

Actually Car 54, I would be more interested in an attorney 'cage match'.

I believe at this time we are up to 9.


After review of the attached documents, it appears to us, the Pussycat Patrol that there is a lot of inbreeding occuring in Huron. Maybe that explains this sordid mess. It would probably be a good idea if you plan on marrying/dating a family member that you don't procreate. That seems to be where the problem lies. Thank you.

PCPatrol you are definately onto something:
Attorney Drew Legando = Nephew of Coach Legando
Donna 'Hastings' Green = Ex-sister-inlaw of Coach Legando
Tim SOWecke = Uncle by marriage of Coach Legando

The apples seem to be falling off of this family tree.

A Legando is an attorney? I never knew that. (not that I really much cared) Neither did I know that Donna Green was Cindy's sister.

So who is Legando representing in this fiasco?

Tsu Dho Nimh

He is representing two people who are not related to him: Donna Green and Tim Sowecke. Sold wants to tie him to the two because of the fact that Coach Legando is his uncle. Donna is the coach's ex-sister in law (no relation to Drew) and Tim is the coach's uncle-in-law (no relation to Drew).

I like it better the way I did it, TDN !

Tsu Dho Nimh

Of course you do,

Tsu Dho Nimh

Let us not forget that:

Pat Murray = Fred Fox's friend
Kevin Asher = Fred Fox's long time friend and golf companion
Bus Garage Supervisor = Fred Fox's long time friend and travelling buddy to Fremont

I can't believe that The Discovery Channel hasn't picked up on this saga yet. It sure would make for a great reality show. With all of the PDF files listed here, the script would already be written. All they would have to do is come up with a catchy name for the title. Hmmm, let me see!!!!

How about 'Fox Hunt' ?

Tsu Dho Nimh

Or "World's Stupid Superintendents"


Does the conspiracy theory go back to when Fred was an outcast as a child during the neighborhood game of "kick the can" ?

Tsu Dho Nimh

LOL...that is funny but makes as much sense as anything else listed in Asher's second suit. Compare the writing style, grammar, and spelling of Asher's filing along with his conspiracy theory and Attorney Legando's response. I think Mrs. Green and Mr. Sowecke have better representation.

Grasping at straws..

Tsu Dho Nimh

Perhaps but you, Sold, pulled the short straw.

Ακόμη Sold σχετ...

Not at all TDN..
I just see this as more smoke and mirrors and lawyer talk. I still cannot believe anyone would use all of this to cover up what they did. They fired the first shot, and now everyone has to 'show' their cards, err, skeletons ?

This kind of uncertainty on the school board cost them a taxpayer. Glad we decided to stay on the other side of the bay.

Ακόμη Sold σχετ...

Smart move, FlyBoy !
Taxpayers and parents in Huron are definately not being represented fairly.

Maybe it's time for a class action lawsuit on behalf of them to remove the cancer from this situation ?


do you have or do i need to bring you a broom to sweep all this freddy issues under the rug?

Ακόμη Sold σχετ...

Hahaha.. Nice SR !


With this kind of drama, its amazing that any work gets done over there. How do they do any school business? This would make a great stomach turning soap opera is right. Obviously they can't get along. Name it "As the Backbiters Turn"


There isn't any school business getting any done. I can give you a few staff members that are dropping the ball on their jobs since nobody's paying attention to them anymore. When was the last time there was a board meeting that had anything to do with the actual functioning of the school?


RUKidding-I agree. I have seen the same thing.


RUKidding and PS...Well, your school board started this and they removed your superintendant. So who do you have to thank for this? Certanily not the superintendant. I would say you have your school board members to thank. What a shame they were so short sighted to do this NOW during the school year and not wait until the school year was completed. That would have made much more sense than to do this now. Bad planning on their part to disrupt an entire school system for such nonsense.

Actually, Mama, there was no good time to do this.

This particular situation started in November of 2011 when Tim SOWecke met attorney Markling at the Ohio Association of School Boards conference in Columbus. Attorney Markling was offering 10 free hours of service and SOWecke had a 'certain project' he personally wanted Markling to investigate.

You don't really think that the 3 Stooges took the school year(s), the students, or the taxpayers into consideration before striking out on this journey ?

Tsu Dho Nimh say this all started in November 2011. Very interesting because Kevin Asher made a public statement in June that Mr. Sowecke attended an OASB meeting in Janaury 2012 and supposedly shared said information. Mr. Sowecke has always maintained that he never claimed to have met Markling at the OASB conference. So which is it, Sold? Sounds like the Fox supporters cannot keep their stories straight. Could it be that it is easier to remember the truth than to remember a lie? Just asking :)

Ακόμη Sold σχετ...

Easier to remember the truth ?
I was estimating when this started as WiredMama said they picked a bad time. Does it really matter if it started in November at the School Board conference or at another board event in January of 2012 ?

Where ever it started and whenever it started, it started with Tim SOWecke getting elected to the Huron Board of Education.

You keep grasping at straws. This is just more 'bottom feeder' BS, (Thanks for that Retiree !)
