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."

I have asked the moderators to remove Sold's comments, which contain inaccurate personal information about me. Anyone interested in my academic or professional credentials can visit my firm's website at or contact me directly. Given the Rules of Professional Conduct, I cannot respond further to anonymous comments.


Another example of Sold not only ignoring and distorting facts, but also arguing with those who speak the truth.

And Informed-
Nothing I posted was distorted or innaccurate in any way. Just because an attorney said it's so and the Register seemed to echo it does not make it innaccurate or distorted.

Attorney Legando tried to answer the post with his psuedonym and decided that wasn't enough. You continue to be led by someone who is not only involved in this mess, but is continually posting distorted facts.

I have one claim and have had it from the beginning, Informed:
Board member Tim SOWecke, after ilegally meeting with his other two cohorts, (or should I call them co-defendents ?), decided to take matters into his own hands and deliver the Markling report to the OEC making it a public document intended to smear Fred Fox. This is very simple to read and in no way distorted.

You and others continue to ignore Fred Fox's rights just as the 3 Stooges did. It is all right to aknowledge the truth as I continually do when it is posted no matter who it makes look bad.

I assure you, Sold on Nothing, that I am not Drew Legando, have never met Drew Legando, and do not even know which part of the Legando family he comes from. I am just an average citizen, who moved into this community, and have watch a few family names make up their own rules. I am just glad that the truth is coming out and that perhaps for once, someone will be held accountable (if guilty).



Just made the connection when Sold wrote 'Attorney Legando tried to answer the post with his psuedonym and decided that wasn't enough'.(psuedonym/Tsu Dho Nimh) What an idiot for him to think that a reputable lawyer would even join in !

Ακόμη Sold σχετ...

You know UGTA-
Look who the idiot is here, (in the mirror), as when you go back what, 3 comments Drew Legando actually did post under his own name.

I'll figure out who you are next. Let me see.. I'll begin by looking at the real idiots and you should pop up.

As I have said in the past: You have nothing in the way of information to post here so I will not waste my time attempting to tell YOU the truth as I did above. Anyone with half a brain could have made that connection and Drew's sudden appearance just proves it.. Stupid.. lol

Sold...there you go twisting the topic. You have said several times before Drew Legando posting that he was participating in the comments. Where are the 3 comments under the name Drew Legando? I can only find one where he called you out. You then back peddled and said that his has been joining the posts all along under a pseudonym (gee, it does not take a rocket scientist or an accountant at Ford to figure that one out). I will tell you again that I am not Drew Legando. Heck, a few months back you thought I was Mrs. Catri. Why do you care who I am and what difference does it make?

Thanks for bringing this to our attention Drew. The comments have been removed. Just a note to everyone, please do not post personal information about other users or story subjects. We cannot know what is good, vetted information and what someone has just made up. That's why it's included as inappropriate in our commenting guidelines. Thanks for your cooperation!

So, Sarah-
Posters cannot post information here until it is posted on the pages of the Register ?

I, for one, know what the Register is printing and what the Register is either choosing not to print, or are just ignorring because you do not want to actually do investigative reporting. The key word source being: Investigate.

Your, (notice I say, your), newspaper allows the 'Toolgate' situation to go even though with one public information request to the Erie County Sheriff's Department or to the Auditor of Ohio you could end the debate ?

What I posted on here were the actual stats of Drew Legando's law school days. It was his grades, not how many beers he could down on his off time. Somehow, I believe you would have allowed me to post the beer information.

The key to this whole mess is Huron Board Member, Tim SOWecke, taking the Markling report and hand delivering it to the OEC even though his cohorts knew nothing about it and the board's attorney told him not to. Why not get to the bottom of this and shut us all up ?

Ακόμη Sold σχετ...

Nice of you to drop by Drew.
Listen.. All of this drama over your stats ?

Those stats are somehow nowhere in the link you provide ?

So for the rest that think I posted something dramatic and filled with lies, it was only Drew Legando's Law School stats as provided to me from one of his old classmates. I have no doubt that they are truthful as they were not terrible, but apparently enough to get at least Drew's attention.

I have posted many times that you are a fine young man, Drew. Huron is proud to have young men like yourself representing us. You are obviously not in agreement with my posts as you represent the 'dark side' of this issue.

One question that I guess I know the answer to as most attorneys involved here don't care one way or another what's left of Huron when this is over: You honestly believe that Huron's taxpayers should pay between $50,000 and $60,000 for the Markling report ?

I know.. Just doing your job.

Tsu Dho Nimh

Again, Sold, what is your facination with Drew Legando? His only involvement is that he is the legal councel for three board members. Certainly you would agree that they are entitled to seek out legal councel!

It's not my fascination that should be in question here. It's yours DL.

Tsu Dho Nimh

I think it is fantastic that you think I am Drew because that tells me that you think I have intelligent, fact based opinions. However, I think it is unfair to keep dragging his name into this.



Why would you even request Drew's law school stats ? That's just creepy. His academics don't relate to this mess. Sounds like his filing makes you nervous !


May I ask why the answers were all based on "real estate" basis for standings when it came to answers from the board? I don't understand how that had anything to do with the charges against the board. When I read them and then researched them, it made no sense to me. They don't seem to fit the actual charges being filed. What is up with that? They seem to be filed as a "standing as an individual taxpayer purpose" instead of an employee of the board of education. How can that be used as Mr. Fox was still and employee when this happened? Also Mr. Asher was a board member, not just a taxpayer. How do any of those standing and suits meet the requirements. Explain please?

Ακόμη Sold σχετ...

There's a lot on both sides that doesn't fit, or make sense. The 'counter injunction/suit' says that Kevin Asher, as a Board Member cannot claim to be a tax payer, although ultimately he is.

Legal mumbo jumbo.. Each cites all the way to the supreme court.

I would like to see, (given the facts that have been presented), who in this mess would have done it all over again.


You weren't clear who you were posing this question to. Is is fair for anyone to answer ? Just wanting to make sure !


Jesus fing christ - why can't you morons wait until a ruling is made by thoses entities that have the power to make a ruling before you go spouting off at the mouth. Honestly you all are a bunch of losers! To be honest, I hope each and every person involved in this mess gets to the point where medication and mental therapy is needed on a daily basis - get that sold - wait, you already are on that schedual.

Ακόμη Sold σχετ...

Great post, Tmm !
Well until you had to get it in that I'm on a meds sched.. I would like to have therapy everyday, though.

The post still makes a lot of sense. Lawyers are going to fight this thing back and forth and they are going to say things that are true and things that are not. In the end.. It will be the end.


TMM....This is a posting board. Why do you want anyone to wait for posting their opinions until a ruling is made? Opinions are just opinions, not statements of actual FACTS. You seem to be getting terribly upset over people's opinions. Why?

No one here is a moron for stating what they think. They have every right to state their thoughts, whether right or wrong and they are not harming anyone or any thing.

If it upsets you so much, I have a suggestions. Simply stop reading them. Perhaps you are too close to this situation and if it is upsetting you to this point, perhaps it would be better if you didn't read them.

But if you continue to read, expect opinions to be stated right and left and expect them to be contrary to YOUR beliefs. You cannot stop them no matter how hard you try. Not everyone sees things or believes things as you do.

So take a deep breath and relax, because it will be awhile before any of this goes to court for a ruling as you state. And between now and then, many opinions will be stated: not all to your liking. That does not make the person stating them mentally deficient or in need of mental therapy. Nor does it make them losers or anything of the kind. That is just plain mean and I don't believe you mean that at all. I think you have a better head than that. I hope I am right about it.

All of us must remember that no one here has including me has all the answers nor do we have the right or wrong anwers. We have opinions that may or may not be right or wrong. As I have said many times this is all appearances and perceptions at this point, nothing more or less.

Until this DOES go to court or more information is released, all we can do is base our opinions on the facts that have been released and what we see.


I for one am over this whole debacle. Fire everyone and start over. There problem solved. The only thing that will change after this is the size of the schools bank account, and the amount of donations made from Kalahari.


Hey Sold,, while at work today my boss told me i couldnt use company email to talk to my wife. He said I was there to work, I responded i am on salary, i am always on the clock. so you shouldnt be telling me I can't email my wife at 10am. Who do you think you are? Do you think im right Sold? who is he to say i can't. i dont have a start or finish time. im on salary to work as long as needed. anywhere from 8 to 24 hours.

Tsu Dho Nimh

Maybe you should get Pat Murray to represent


Even better would be Attorney Asher....

Tsu Dho Nimh

True, but he is not licensed to practice in Ohio. He never has been!


A license is no big deal..... these guys are above the law


Huron 69....why is it that you could not answer my questions on the other pages before? I would really love to know the answers and would appreciate hearing them. Thanks.


I did state my position in a clear and straightforward manner yet you continue to twist in the wind. You have no skin in the game and ignore the facts. While your writing skills are excellent, your comprehension has a lot to be desired
