You said it in Huron

Reaction to Fred Fox firing cuts across community.

Following the Huron school board’s 3-2 decision to fire superintendent Fred Fox, the Register posed this question to a handful of Huron residents: Are you concerned the school board’s decision to fire Fred Fox is going to cost the district too much money?

“I’m very concerned about it. It was advised they should put him back to work. ... As far as I can see, they’re probably jealous of the woman and were making a big deal out of a few bucks. My opinion is, they made a mistake.”  — Gregory Sheets, 68, Huron
 
“I hadn’t thought about it much. I hope it doesn’t affect my pocketbook.” — Virginia Parisi, 78, Huron
 
“My kids are out of school, but it’s a sad situation for the city. There will be more money involved, I’m sure.” —Barbara Vance, 66, Huron
 
“I know we’re in a heap of trouble. I’m concerned about what it’s going to do to the budget of the school. If he did something wrong, he should walk away from it and let it be. The community and the kids don’t deserve to be the pawns in all this.” — Linda Riggle, 71, Huron
 
“To a certain point, I think (the board) did (right). But it wasn’t anybody’s business but his. If you look at Perkins and Huron, we’re in better shape than they are. Fred Fox wasn’t doing too bad.”
— Amy Palmison, 30, Huron
 
“Those three board members should be out the door. They’re taking taxpayer money away from educating the kids. It’s very disturbing.” — Gene Palinski, 84, Huron

4 of the 6 are confirmed teabaggers.

bobshumway92

You sure are obsessed with that word. I bet you lay in bed at night dreaming of teabags as you drift off to sleep.

The Big Dog's back

People, not words.

bobshumway92

So you are obsessed with the people's teabags. Weird.

The Big Dog's back

The Big Dog's back

bobshumway92

So poochie you say you've been smacked in the face by 4 of the six of them..
Wow must have been a strange after hours party at McD's.
This is the only way I know you could confirm this to back up your statement.

bobshumway92

He must be tied up teabagging with his co-workers at Mickey D's.

Trollin trollin trollin.

bobshumway92

Trollin for teabags?

shucks

bobshumway92, you've been using that word a lot - and it hasn't been "trollin" or "for".

whocares

This is a very poor sampling. I can't believe the Register made an article out of it.

I agree with Sheets! BTW.. we were wondering , what ever happened to him.. Nice to know he doing well! :)

I think the Fox fiasco ~ with all the talk about the football coach vs. the ethics i.e. extra-marital affair of Fred Fox ~ is a perfect example of the double-standard that may now be coming back to bite the Huron school board. It's one and the same with the reason the Rules for Professional Conduct state that JUDGES are to follow their own and/or the PRECEDENT of other judges in all similar cases to avoid any hints of impropriety.

Two wrongs don't make a right but it sounds to me like that's what Murray is going to use.
