The Huron school board tabled a reinstatement vote for fired district superintendent Fred Fox on Tuesday. The 3-2 vote to table for more time to review the most recent information — a state referee's recommendation that Fox be reinstated — happened after audience members spoke from the microphone urging the board to take action.

Where is Ms. Catri's video chat to Mr. Caporini ?????

Tsu Dho Nimh

She was the only one who didn't speak about Fred Fox. Her statement was directed at the two board members and the treasurer. I'm sure that is why it's not included.

I wanted to watch the video again to see where she tells Mr. Asher that the meeting he testified about doesn't exist in the board records.

There you go again

This looks like a circus! Where are the peanuts?

Jason Werling

Ms. Catri is included in the clip above.

whazup

Where? I don't see it.

Jason Werling

There should be a new Livestream player above, click play and she addresses the board at about a minute into the clip.

The LiveStream video is gone.

In this story above "Sponsored from around the web" there should be a livestream player called "Huron School Board Meeting." Try refreshing your page or clearing your cache.

It's not there and I just spoke with two other people and they can't find it either. Why can't you give her a link like the SR gave everyone else?

UgtaBkdnMe

Not available here, too. She is the only one not included. Is there a reason the Register doesn't want it shown?

Jason Werling

No conspiracy theories please. We were streaming live and one of our feeds went down, we then started streaming from a laptop and I started recording each speaker one-by-one with a third camera. That video should be posted above. I will try to find an alternative way to show it if you all can't see it. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Super Judge

On behalf of everyone in Huron I would like to apologize to Fred Fox for the disgrace we brought upon him. Fred we are all truly sorry for any pain we may have caused, please forgive us.

Mr Fox was and is the best thing to ever happen to Huron schools. We are all truly blessed to have had this man as commander of Huron schools.

In a way you are correct only if you don't care about morals, ethics, or integrity. Take those 3 characteristics out and Fred fox is a great example of a grade A human. Problem is most here want those 3 characteristics in a superintendent.

Super Judge

You are incorrect. Do you even care about Huron schools?

Please respond if you have problems viewing this one.

Super Judge

All the people of Huron want is for Fred to forgive the Board of Education for their childish and immature mistake. I know if given the chance we is a community will not let Mr Fox down again.

There you go again

Fred is the ringleader in this circus called Huron.

It certainly seems that the State of Ohio referee was explicit in their terminology that "personal feelings" had no business in the way the BOE was dealing with Mr. Fox and that they should reinstate him with his back wages to his position. Whether some in the community over there like it or not, even the State of Ohio has sided with him. A contract is a contract. Let him work his time out until it is finished and simply don't renew it if you want him to leave when it is completed, but until that time the board is stuck with him. Unless they want more legal trouble, they best do as the State suggests and abide by the referee's suggestions before they end up in court coughing up punitive and compensatory damages that the insurance for the board probably won't cover.

It is truly a shame that feelings out weighed common sense in this matter, but it did, as even the referee saw it that way. Now it needs to end and they need to go back to business as usual until the contract ends with Mr. Fox and the board retreating to their neutral corners for a nice little cooling off period.

"It is truly a shame that feelings out weighed common sense in this matter"

That's rich, coming from you.

wiredmama222

@BW1....since you don't know me personally, I am afraid your assessment is way of it's mark. And that is a shame. Try getting your facts before you comment on someone's life. You don't know as much as you think you do.

Wired,

Look at page 1899 of the testimony and then look at the board minutes and tell me that one of the board members who backs Fox didn't lie (and under oath !) Either the referee is incompetent or just doesn't care !

wiredmama222

Look, you can dissect individual testimony until the cows come home but obviously the State of Ohio has made their decision. Like it or not, the Sate of Ohio has not sided with the board and has told them to give Fox back his job. You all wanted the State to make the decision and it did. Now you have to live with it. The bitter pill you have to swallow is the State didn't side with all of you.

Like it or not, you all are running on emotions and not law. That has been the problem from day one. Now either give Mr. Fox back his contracted job or get sued for breach of contract and have to deal with that. If you guys don't care about paying out millions, then roll the dice again. But you are dealing with taxpayer money and stealing from your children's education to do so. That is a shame.

".....even the State of Ohio has sided with him."

The State of Ohio that sided with him just happened to be a Cleveland lawyer.

Enough said.

wiredmama222

@Julie..And lawyers base their decisions on the law, not on emotions. They go on what they can prove. This time, dear friend, I must disagree. Where many have made a huge mistake is this is about a contract, not ethics or what a person is doing...its about contract law. When the board failed to follow the contract, they automatically lost and the State got it right. Had their been a breach of contract in Fox's handling of school workings, they would have had him cold. Unfortunately they didn't. You cannot mix religious ethics with school needs...separation of church and state....not unless this was a catholic or private school.

Julie R.

@wiredmama, agree or disagree, I respect your opinion .... and you make some very good points.

wiredmama222

@Julie....and I respect yours. It is terribly unfortunate that all this happened. It would have been so simple had it been done the right way in the beginning. NONE of this was necessary. How sad.

Dear Super Judge, Don't be speaking for everyone in Huron. I am tired of dealing with people that don't have morals,ethics and integrity. Fred might be a great guy but he is not setting a good example for our children. If a person is going to be a good leader they should show the above qualities. This is the same problem we have with other branches of the government.

Fred should do what is right and just resign. If he does stay, he will never have the trust that he once had. Lets clean house of all the administration and start over with the school system.

"I am tired of dealing with people that don't have any morals, ethics and integrity."

That's EXACTLY what I said when I was dealing with those judges on the 2nd floor of the Eeerie County courthouse!
