Muratori inks deal with Huron Schools

Huron Schools has publicly released its new superintendent’s contract, a three-year deal that will land him about $400,000 total in salary and benefits.

Jul 15, 2013

 

Dennis Muratori, the district’s new leader, will net about $125,000 a year. The contract is nearly identical to the district’s agreements with its past two superintendents, and it puts Muratori on the same pay scale, treasurer Mike Weis said.

Huron school board members voted 3-2 Monday to hire Muratori as superintendent starting Aug. 1. He is currently Sandusky Schools assistant superintendent.

Newly included in Muratori’s otherwise standard contract is a section regarding “morals, ethics and personal character.” The section was not included in former superintendent Fred Fox’s contract. “The superintendent shall uphold the highest standards of morals and ethics of the Ohio Department of Education, the Ohio Ethics Commission, local, state and federal law and board policy,” the section reads. “Failure to do so may result in discipline, up to and including termination.”   

Board members voted 3-2 in April to fire Fox for alleged misdeeds that included an improper business relationship with a district vendor, inappropriate use of district resources and an extramarital affair on school time. The district first hired Fox as superintendent in 2008. Board members and attorneys crafted and reviewed this contract’s language, so Weis said he could not comment on specific sections of the contract. Board president Scott Slocum did not return a call seeking comment Friday.  

  Muratori’s contract with Huron Schools
• Superintendent job is effective Aug. 1, 2013, to July 31, 2016. $124,989 annual salary, with increases possible.
• 11 percent of salary will be put toward retirement fund, which district does not pick up.
• Up to four weeks paid vacation.
• Reimbursement for “all travel and expenses required during performance of official duties.”
• Reimbursement up to $4,000 per year for professional organizations, service organizations, continuing education and other “professional growth.”
• Cell phone services paid for by district. q#He agrees to have comprehensive medical examinations at the board’s expense.

Once referred to as "Mr. Sandusky" by Tom Tucker. More like Benedict Arnold! Will his kids go to Huron or Sandusky?

whazup

Why is he a Benedict Arnold? Sandusky made it real clear what they want when they hired Dr. Sanders without conducting a superintendent search. Don't you remember how he approached them last summer to fill in for one year? Some how that turned into a million dollar contract for the next 5 years without interviewing anyone for the job. A great opportunity opened locally and he went for it. Sandusky is losing a great administrator. I wish him the best.

Foryourinformation

Whazup: You need to get informed on "WHAZUP" before you get on the blog commenting and making yourself come across like an "ignorant", misinformed gossiper. First of all, Dr. Sanders was approached by the Board to serve and asked by the Board to stay, just as the Board passed up Mr. Muratori before they hired Tom Tucker to serve as the assistant superintendent. They had decided that they didn't want Mr. Muratori to lead the district and as a woman who has talked to Mr. Muratori and know him as a classmate years ago, I adore the man and think the Board should have given him the opportunity to serve as our district's head. Dr. Sanders had nothing to do with it, and has given Mr. Muratori nothing but the best in open forums, meetings, etc. Dr. Sanders is residing here in Sandusky and is seeking out a home to move here permanently. Mr. Muratori will be missed by our district and I wish he was here as my children complete their years in the SCS district. Mr. Muratori is like anyone else who is seeking advancement in any career, and with this opportunity in Huron, he sought it out. If Mr. Fox was still employed, Mr. Muratori would still be in our district serving our students, staff, and community. Dr. Sanders had nothing to do with any of this, so again, why don't you learn "whazup" before you run your fingers across the computer board with misinformation! Best wishes Mr. Muratori, we will miss you in our great district!

whazup

I didn't disrespect Dr. Sanders. My statement was toward the Sandusky BOE. Dr. Sanders is very personable and always upbeat. I will disagree with you. I had a board member tell me that Dr. Sanders let them know he was available and this is how the relationship started. Just like you say, the board asked him to stay. The board didn't conduct a search like they told the residents they would last summer. I never suggested that Mr. Muratori was leaving because he was disgruntled. My response was to the nay sayer who called Mr. Muratori Benedict Arnold. Get your panties out of a knot!

Foryourinformation

Didn't say you disrespected Dr. Sanders, but your questions were directed against him as if he had something to do with his own hiring. My panties aren't in a knot, but my nerves get twisted when inaccurate information is spewed about innocent people to make them look bad. No need to read an article with the Toledo Blade and nothing else! As you have stated, "you had a board member tell you that Dr. Sanders let them know that he was available." If this Board member was honest with what went down, "he" would truthfully tell you that a board member brought Dr. Sanders' name up as an interim as they were seeking out someone immediately to serve when Tom Tucker secretly accepted the job in Lorain without the Board's knowledge. He left abruptly with only a few weeks before school was to start. Mr. Bill Lally and a couple Board members recommended Dr. Sanders for the position and contacted him, not him freely letting them know that "he" was available. Only after they contacted him did he inform them that he was available since he was retired. I'm sure I know where you are getting all of your information from the beginning with this board member telling you what Dr. Sanders said to the personal information of him living with his brother. There was only 1 Board member that didn't want Dr. Sanders to come because of their own personal agenda, and I am sure that that is the Board member relishing all of the information to you. We all have a Board member or two or three that we are close to that can give us the "truth" and the insight to what's going on. Yes, Mr. Muratori had been passed up 2x by the SCS's Board to 1st serve as the Asst. Superintendent and the Superintendent. He definitely could have performed much better than Mr. Tucker did. Huron's gain is our district's lose and I can agree with you completely, The SCS's Board should be called out for us losing Mr. Muratori without any unnecessary mentioning of Dr. Sanders, his hiring, and where he lives.

As I said before, I made my comments at the board, not Dr. Sanders.

Fromthe419

He graduated from Sandusky High, moved to Huron after getting married and graduating from BGSU. His kids attend Huron and he is committed to bringing the community together after the Fox Fiasco. While I don't agree with everything that happened with Fox, I have personally known Denny for over 20 years and I feel he is exactly what the district needs right now. He is good man, good husband, and a good father and he has integrity.

Where does he and his family live? And up until now where did they get their income from? It would be like working for coke and drinking big k cola.

whazup

Where does Dr. Sanders live? Here's a clue - it's not Sandusky!

Foryourinformation

WRONG!!! He resides in Sandusky and is buying a home here as well!!! I understand he is looking at purchasing a home down the street from my in-laws on 42nd street. Now that's "whazup"!!!

whazup

When did he move out of his brother's home in Perkin's Twp? I'm glad he is finally purchasing a home in the city limits.

lifetimeresident

Congratulations Mr. Muratori. Huron is getting a good person. Best of luck to you.

Cobbwebb12345

Remember, the school board vote for "everything" has been three against two.

And keep in mind that the new, more expensive insurance premium protection will not pay for the previous wrongful acts of the "three." And, if I read the new published insurance contract correctly, any current and future growth of school board financial legal debt will also NOT be "covered" by the new company.

In my opinion, the board will be ordered to rehire Mr. Fox. Can anyone imagine the "dollars" he will get (not just back pay) for the humility, mental pain and suffering not only for himself, but for his entire family.

If this comes to pass, then the "three" can kiss their political ambitions to somewhere on the moon. Their moral accusations against Mr. Fox (even if true) will not compare to the total financial and "human" damage for which these three will have been responsible.

Unfortunately, I'm guessing, that the board's attorney has advised the "three" that they are immune from personal lawsuits.

If any of my opinion comes to pass, and "if" Supt. Fox must be offered His job back, and "if" he ACCEPTS!! GOD HELP THOSE THREE.
Because, then, he will have the immunity, the protection from the "three" who then would be the "revenge" and "get even" trio.

Good luck Mr. Fox.

SoldOnAcorns

My God you are the King or Queen of all Acorns ! When are you gonna realize that Fox is GONE and will never return....NEVER ! G-O-N-E ! The decision to FIRE him cannot be reversed by anyone other the Huron BOE. Your entire post is laughable and it amazes that some people can even get out of bed in the morning and be a functional part of society* (* An assumption on my part that you are a functional part of society but I realize that this may not be the case.)

Tsu Dho Nimh

Acorns is correct. Only the BOE can hire and fire. Sounds like some people got their legal advise from the Asher School of Law at the University of Caporini.

Mr. Muratori will do a fantastic job and Huron is fortunate that he is willing to join our district. Best wishes to our new superintendent.

Informed

The moral accusations, if even true! I am dying of laughter!!! Did you even read his emails to the Fremont principal? Not only do they reek of the affair, they also mention drug use. I am so glad the slime ball is gone!

Princess87

Morallly inappropriate yes ..however drug use?? REAllY I read the e-mails..no drugs. Just stupid banter..

Informed

Yes there was reference to drugs. Ms. Mistress mentioned wine, and Fox intimated that he would need something more, like drugs. It's in there. You just missed it or glossed over it.

Princess87

Didn't gloss over it.. read it! It was all in jest. Don't make more out of it..

Informed

And you think, that even if it was in jest, that is okay to do using a school email account on school time? Highly unprofessional and unethical at best. If it wasn't in jest (and you are assuming that, you don't know) then also illegal.

donutshopwannabe

2 of Muratori's kids are open enrolled in Sandusky as of July 8. This will cost Huron $11K per year. What a slap in the face. Also the Fox issue, read the latest Magistrate order and you will see that the Court is going to hear the Sunshine Law issues first before the appeal. If there are violations -- and there are major violations -- that the three all admitted to under oath -- all actions will be voided. I keep telling you all this over and over -- go read the testimony. Let's think about this -- why would the Court do this? I'll tell you why -- because they want this mess over and off the dockit. And that is the easiest path. I am sure that the Court is not happy that the three totally disregarded the system in place. The pain, the suffering and the COST is unbearable. Also -- remember there is an election in the Fall -- do you really think this 3-2 Board will be in place next year.

Tsu Dho Nimh

Do you know why the children are enrolled in Sandusky, Mr. Ice Cream? I am not going to put their personal business out there but you should be ashamed of yourself. I wonder if you even have the ability to feel shame.

UgtaBkdnMe

I think Huron has recouped enough money from the Sandusky students attending our schools to make up for the 2 Muratori children. Any parent would respect their decision to keep the two youngest at their mother's building. They have a a good reason to. What a nut dip wannabe is !

Huron_1969

Slocum, Green and Solwicki have my vote and support!

UgtaBkdnMe

I plan to support Slocum and Green's reelection this fall. With Sowecke remaining on the board we will have the 3. We can only hope that Asher doesn't run or if he does someone else will take his seat.

whazup

Go crawl back under your Lighthouse. You're nothing but Fox's mouthpiece !

Dudley Do-Right

Too much ice cream causes brain freeze ....

Unfortunately, two of the Muratori children where born with cleft palates, they have gone under many extensive surgeries, and will continue to do so. Their mother is an elementary principal and having the children in her building allows her to take care of their needs. Put your ugliness aside, these are little kids.

Foryourinformation

Dudley: I know you had good intent on your blog, but it is no one's business what is going on with the Muratori kids. To be honest, you are violating a very serious law (HIPPA LAW) with even mentioning the children, their disability, and their surgeries. As parents, it is their "parental right" to open-enroll their children wherever they'd like with or without a disability or their mom being a principal. Again, your intent was without foul or malicious, but it is not your responsibility to put their children's business on this blog. As you stated, "these are little kids"!

UgtaBkdnMe

For Your Information it is HIPAA, not HIPPA. Unless Dudley is a health care provider, he probably didn't break the law. You're entitled to your opinion of the post but don't tell someone that they broke the law. Now you're sounding ignorant.

Foryourinformation

UgtaBkdnMe: First of all, my comment was to "Dudley", and it was actually agreeing with him/her and complementing them on their post with the exception of posting the private business of the Muratori's kids. Second of all, you need to get some business of your own and stay out of mine. I didn't say "they broke the law," so when you quote me...cookie, quote me correctly! 3rd of all, before you try to correct me and any misspellings, you may want to read through your own numerous blog posts with misspellings, grammatical errors, and incomplete sentences with incorrect punctuations at the end. It should be against the law that you would have the audacity to try to correct me on a mistyped letter compared to your enormous number of errors in each one of your blogs. You are absolutely right..."YOU GOTTA BE KIDDING ME" for trying to correct me if all you can do is try to criticize me for a letter being out of place. That is "For Your Information", and believe me, the HIPAA I know very well of this law: "This act gives the right to privacy to individuals from age 12 through 18...with a signed disclosure from the affected before giving out any information on provided health care to anyone, including parents.[3][4]" Again, I commend Dudley on her stance with Mr.& Mrs. Muratori, but I don't think he/she is at liberty to share with everyone the afflictions of their children. My blog was not a means to criticize them, but as a parent, their children is a private matter! Thank you for your comment!

UgtaBkdnMe

"To be honest, you are violating a very serious law (HIPPA LAW) with even mentioning the children, their disability, and their surgeries." - from your post

violate - verb (used with object), vi·o·lat·ed, vi·o·lat·ing. 1. to break, infringe, or transgress ( a law, rule, agreement, promise, instructions, etc.).

I didn't misquote you, Cookie!

Why is it that you're allowed to correct others, who were responding to other people's posts, but no one can correct you? Whazup was answering YoMamma and Dudley was answering Donutshopwannabe when you butted in. There is no difference, Cupcake.

Foryourinformation

Hahahahaha: You are not worth an ongoing conversation! As I read all of the blog posts, you have numerous errors in all of your blogs, and "ALL" of the conversations that you "butted" in were bloggers responding to other people, including mine to Dudley. So sweetie, keep it moving because you don't deserve a response any longer and you are obviously seeking power by trying to correct me on an unintended letter in a word and provide me with the definition of a "violate". I can only shake my head and laugh at you. Your many posts with misspelled words, grammatical errors, and the incorrect punctuations is enough for me. Go and pick a blog argument with the next bloggers and "butt-out" of my posts. Please and thank you, Sweetie-pie!

Dudley: My post to you was "no harm...no foul"! Again, I commend you for looking out for the Muratori Family (who happens to be close friends of mine), and they read my post. Thanks for your support for them!

Dudley Do-Right

Foryourinformation ...
I wrote about the Muratori children in general. What I mentioned is public knowledge, nothing that is a secret or only known by them, their health care providers, or their teachers. I did not break a law. You may disagree with the fact that a mentioned it, but don't accuse me of breaking the HIPAA or FERPA laws. As you mentioned, I was defending the Muratori family. Defending them from someone who has no limits to where he will go to support Mr. Fox and therefore disrupt Mr. Muratori's success. Since you know the Muratori's well please let them know their children are adorable and I wish them well.

Huron_1969

The Fox Camp managed to sink to an all time low.

Tsu Dho Nimh

It is the parental right of any parent to open-enroll their children in another district. However, when the parent is the chief leader of a district, and the family lives in the district, people will want to know why his children are not attending school in Huron. There is no doubt in my mind that Mr. Muratori shared his and his wife's decision with the board. What irks me, and probably Dudley, it the fact that Donutshopwannabe is aware of their reasons but is already trying to undermine Mr. Muratori's leadership before he even takes the helm on August 1. Mr. Wannabe (aka Lighthouse/Pied Piper) has a direct link to what the board discusses with his long time friends Kevin Asher and John Caporini. His goal is to bring back his best friend, Fred Fox. Should Dudley have shared some common knowledge? Maybe, maybe not. However, I do not agree that he violated their rights under HIPAA (which governs healthcare providers) and anyone who knows the Muratori's are aware that they do not keep their children's surgeries secret.

Tsu Dho Nimh

Alissa has enough information for another story regarding the Huron School board but refuses to pursue it. Not sure if she is afraid to or if she has a loyalty to Mr. Asher and Mr. Caporini. There is a real story out there, based on solid evidence, which will help explain the decisions and actions of two of the board members. She won't even answer emails or return phone calls.

TDN – you seem to be the senior spokesperson on this site. Two questions: 1) Why do you think the Magistrate is going to hear the Sunshine Law issues first as opposed to the appeal? Why are they spending the time, effort and money on this? Why not just get to the appeal? 2) Do you know who is running for the three open slots on the Huron Board in the fall?

Tsu Dho Nimh

I don't know why you call me the senior spokesperson but I will take it as a compliment. Regarding the Magistrate hearing the Sunshine Laws issue, your mentioning of it is the first I heard of it. Would you please share where you got this information? I would like to see it before I share an opinion. As far as the board, I heard both Mr. Slocum and Mrs. Green are running. No one I talk to knows if Mr. Asher plans to run. Wonder what would happen if only two people are willing to run? It will be interesting, to say the least.

Here is my summary of the Magistrate's Order:

Point 1 - makes reference to reference to Count 2 of the Civil Suit, an alleged Sunshine Law violation. This section states “The court can consider the remedy or effect of any proven violation of the Sunshine Law through post-trial or closing argument briefing”. There is nothing in this section that supports that if there was a violation of the Sunshine Law, the suit will be over and all decisions will be reversed.

Point 2 - “The above needs to be completed before the Administrative Appeal can be properly briefed and a decision made thereon. In the event that the above steps do not resolve the matter (i.e. no violation of the Sunshine Law is proven and/or the legal remedy is not voiding all proceedings), then the Administrative Appeal will be set on a Briefing Schedule. This court will establish further Status Conferences as the above matters progress”. This section suggests that one option of a legal remedy in point 1 is voiding all proceedings. There are other options, Wannabe. I think your putting your cart before the horse.

Point 3 – the last point of the order is basically telling both parties to try to come to a settlement and leave the court out of it.

Just a bit of information that will come full circle soon. While removing items from a persons locker that was let go,receipts were found for the purchase of tools. When the individuals went to look for the tools that were purchased, they were no where to be found.

I sure hope that the people in Huron know who Fox's posse is. Their next move is to get three Fox supporters elected to the school board. Look out Huron taxpayers if they are elected.

Julie R.

Geez .... still can't figure out what the big deal is about these stupid tools. One would think they were worth over a hundred thousand dollars or more --- like the property in Huron that the corrupt Erie County courts sold at a scam sheriff sale through a scam partition action and a fraud preliminary judicial report that didn't mention the fraudulent transfer of the 1st owner's half seven months before her death or the defrauding of her 4th beneficiary.

Seems to me defrauding somebody out of their already given rights to property by criminally defrauding the elderly incompetent owner prior to her death would be a lot more serious of a crime than the theft of stupid tools.

donutshopwannabe

TDN - go to Courthouse and get a copy and read it -- the June 26 Magistrate order. This came after the Case Management review with all attorneys. It's all in there. I think it's a blow to plaintiff. Would like your opinion -- he even brings up voiding actions. If that happens the termination would be voided and the Board would have no say in the matter. All actions after Sunshine Law violations are voided. This may even void the Muratori contract.

Tsu Dho Nimh

I have read over the magistrate’s order and this is what I am reading:

Count 2 of the Civil Suit is the Sunshine Law claim. IF the Sunshine Law is determined to have been violated, the Board can file another motion to have the claim thrown out. I disagree with you that it is cut and dry as you say. This order does not keep the issue from going to trial so again, IF the court believes the Sunshine Law was violated, it will not be over. We are now in July of 2013 and Mr. Fox’s contract expires July 31, 2014. Do you think that this process could possibly be complete before his contract expires? Let’s assume that Mr. Fox does win the trial (which I personally do not think he will but stranger things have happened), he will not have a contract to return to. At best, the board will owe him his pay from the September 6, 2012 date of suspension without pay to July 2014, the last day of his contract. Mr. Muratori will not lose his job.

Point 3 of the order strongly urges counsel to discuss settlement options with their clients. The magistrate gives Mr. Murray until August 1 to make a proposal and the board has until August 23 to respond. Did you catch the part that this was to be done out of court? As much as I do not believe that Mr. Fox is deserving of a settlement, I think he would be smart to take one. One thing I do believe without any doubt, the board WILL NOT agree to reinstating Mr. Fox as part of the settlement.

The senior spokesperson has spoken...lol

whazup

Maybe the Register will post the magistrate order since you say it's a blow to the the stooges. If it is really that big of a deal, why is it that you're the only one bringing it up? They printed Asher's bogus conspiracy theory so why not this? We know you are Fox's BFF and defend him come hell or high water. Do you remember standing in the auditorium at McCormick speaking about how we would lose the money for renovating it? You were dead wrong!!!! Todd Nelson didn't donate anything toward the auditorium. Kalahari was given a tax abatement which earmarked money for the renovation of the auditorium. Your little performance trying to defame our deputy superintendent didn't work either. If you want to hear a real story, ask the Register why the OEC came to visit the last time.

Gotta wonder how low the little Fox camp will go... there's no end to the twisting and turning as they continue to try to deflect the blame for the root causes of this fiasco. One thing is for sure, they want to get one more Foxer (or Foxette) on the board. If by some miracle that happens, Huron schools are doomed.

The junk from the Fox posse that is put on these blogs are nothing but,"ill thought up lies". After what was put on the blogs the last ten months, nothing has come true. Matter of fact,everything you have said, the opposite happens. Face up to the truth, Fox is gone and will not be coming back. No matter how many rumors,lies, or what your monetary agenda was with him,it is over with. The Ethics committee has been in your little "Peyton Place" quite a few times the last two months interviewing people. Soon you will know the truth about what crimes have been violated over the years. It will be shocking to some, but others all ready know how corrupt that administration has been.

donutshopwannabe

TDN – Sunshine Law first at a bench trial and appeal second. I ask you why he set this up in this order? Why? Why did he not set it up in the order of the Appeal complaint? Why would the court spend time and money on this? Why? He also said this after reviewing the case file and discussing this with the attorney’s. Go read the transmittal and you will see that they admitted they repeatedly violated the Sunshine Law. This is an easy way to get this off the docket. How can you not see this? And if actions are voided, that voids his firing. Look the law up—for 7 weeks they had “serial meetings” and held information back from the 2 Board members and the Public. Slocum never had Board authorized “power” to act individually and neither did Sowecke when he took the report to Columbus.

Also – I’m betting that after December that this 3-2 Board is not in place and the new Board can do whatever they want – as the precedent has been set. Break policy, break the law, cover things up, hide information from 2 Board members for 7 weeks, deceitfully hire Markling, etc. Here’s one big item you are forgetting -- 10 days of hearings, 2700 pages of testimony, and $300K spent by insurance. They lost 23-0. To continue this charade is a slap in the face of the justice system and how do you think the local Common Pleas Court feels about that? What makes you think they will overturn this? It’s over and they lost – Murray and Fox are looking at 7 figures plus a contract extension.

Wait till you see the next five year forecast. Fiscal emergency in 2 years. Even if the levy is passed. Who is running for the Board?

Justme...

What board action did the three take without knowledge of the two? Regarding the 5 yr forecast, Fox/Weiss always said publicly they would need new money in 2015.

"It’s over and they lost – Murray and Fox are looking at 7 figures plus a contract extension."

whazup

Who is running for the BOARD, Wannabe? Since you're in the know tell us who will take the 3 seats.

Tsu Dho Nimh

I cannot help but wonder if the order of events was not based on Mr. Murray’s motion. It seems that Mr. Murray and Mr. Fox are worried about moving forward with the appeal. They could be trying to use the Sunshine Law claim as a way not to carry on with the appeal. The termination process was held publicly so I am not convinced that the Sunshine Law was broken in regards to his actual termination. His suspension with pay in June, his suspension without pay in September, and his termination in April were all public. If I thought I could not win counts 3 – 9, I would want to put all of my focus on count 2 and hope for the best.

Don’t forget that the referee’s opinion is non-binding and it is not uncommon for a district to not accept his/her opinion. A similar situation just occurred in the Toledo Public Schools. The referee was in favor of the administrator on all counts but the board voted to terminate her. Here is a question to you: if Mr. Fox felt confident that he did no wrong, then why did he not opt for an arbitrator? The arbitrator’s opinion would have been binding and this would have been settled.

I do not see the board looking too different after December. Mr. Slocum and Mrs. Green have a lot of support in this community. It will not matter as far as a majority is concerned who wins Mr. Asher’s seat. This community voted out one of Mr. Fox’s biggest cheerleaders when it voted in Mr. Sowecke and I seriously doubt we will see another cheerleader voted in.

whazup

What if a current board member is not able to complete his term because an agency orders him to resign? How will the board replace him?

UgtaBkdnMe

We can only hope the OEC makes a ruling on the SECOND investigation before the election. When the truth comes out about one of the current board members there will be no way any Fox or Foxette will get elected.

The way some of you Huronites are still ranting on and on about Fred Fox, one would think that Fox set out to personally ~ and criminally ~ harm some you Huronites or something ---- like some of your other dirt-bags in Huron and your corrupt Erie County courts do.

Right, Retiree?

You of all people complaining about ranting, at least they are on topic, try it some time.

That's rich, Julie ! You would recognize ranting on about something since that's all that you do. No matter the topic you manage to make it about you and how you were ripped off. News flash. Nobody cares !

Julie R.

News flash. Nobody cares about Fred Fox and how he ripped you poor Huronites off with your continuous rants about stolen tools and a stupid old school bus!

Julie R.

Of course you Huronites don't care about auditors that authorize fraudulent transfers of property on forged power of attorneys hidden in another county, recorders that knowingly file fraud documents, financial institutions in Huron that make internal criminal changes to an elderly incompetent person's contracts, a court that allows their attorney/judge friends to file forged wills two years after a client's death and another court that sells property with serious defects in the titles at scam sheriff sales under fraud preliminary judicial reports ---- the corrupt county clowns are doing fraud favors for you so why should you care.

On the other hand, you all whine about Fred Fox doing favors for HIS friends --- like Kalahari giving business to Fox's realtor friend. My advice there is ---- the Huron realtors should stick with buying property at illegal court-ordered scam sheriff sales. It's more their speed.

Deep breath Julie R, deep breath....it's time to let it go and move on. Get busy living or get busy dying....atleast that's what my friend Andy Dufresne always used to say !

Julie R.

Another good one ..... "Oh, what a terrible web we weave when first we practice to deceive." At least that's what my mother always used to say. They should also inscribe that on a plaque and hang it on the front of the Eeeeerie County courthouse!

Great comment, but if she didn't have her rants what would she have?

Julie R.

If corrupt Erie County wasn't into fraud what would they have? Idiot auditors that cause serious defects in the titles to property by authorizing fraudulent transfers of property belonging to the elderly (a matter of public record), recorders that knowingly file fraud documents (a matter of public record), idiot courts that allow their attorney friends to file forged wills two after a client's death (a matter of public record), another idiot court and a former sheriff that knowingly sell fraudulently transferred property at a scam sheriff sale under a fraud preliminary judicial report, etc., etc. And then those idiot scams the courts and their idiot attorney friends pull off --- like attorneys filing and dimissing bogus sham lawsuits pertaining to Erie County probate estates in the jurisdiction of Cuyahoga County on behalf of non-clients .... (another matter of public record)

When you look at the whole picture it's your county public officials and their idiot attorney friends that cause 99% of the train wrecks in corrupt Erie County!

J Cooper

It never changes, off topic rants and excuses for being disinherited, how very sad.

Julie R.

Hey Retiree, how did your Huron attorney/judge friends and that Lorain County attorney ever get away with transferring an elderly incompetent person's half to property seven months before her death just by falsely stating on a fraud quitclaims deed that a forged power of attorney concealed in the Lorain County Recorder was on file in Erie County?

Little help from their buds in the prosecutor's office and the probate court, maybe?

Nancy Bulea beat Mr. Needham by only 158 votes, 3,425 votes total were against her. That was a slap in the face for an incumbent. Hope she doesn’t embarrass herself and run again.

Here is a real kick in the teeth for our local hardware store. New Dollar General going in on west side of Huron, right next to McDonald's. That should be the final nail in the coffin for Ace.

Your buddy at our local cement company has bigger worries than the hardware store. BTW, did you sell the property?

When is the Register going to begin sharing this story?

Wannabe...I answered you with my thoughts on the order of events and the best you can post is information on Dollar General coming to town? When did Dollar General add a paint department, plumbing and electrical supplies, and other hardware needs?

Would you please answer the question I asked you? Why did your friend not opt for arbitration? Since he contends that he did no wrong, the arbitrator would have given a binding decision and the issue would be over. I think someone was afraid of what an arbitrator would have to say. You have also mentioned that the board will look different after December. Your Dollar General post shows that you are focusing on getting even with someone. Will the Fox supporting candidates be running to move the district forward or will they be looking for revenge?

TDN -- ORC 3319.16 makes no provision for an arbritrator. Read it. The three stooges would never have agreed anyway. Remember 23-0. What would evermake you think that this will change -- will be the same witnesses and same story -- can't change, it's under oath.

J Cooper

Ice cream & cement business must be slow if they have this much time to spend on the blogs.

Julie R.

A Dollar General in Huron? That should stay in business for maybe 6 months.

Hey wannabe!

The word is that Fred's attorney submitted a settlement offer on August 1 and even before he got a response resubmitted another offer with a big decrease in what he was asking for. Is it true the insurance company has rejected the second offer even though what Fred is asking for was drastically reduced? Don't you find it odd that Fred's attorney would submit a second offer before getting a response to the first? Could it be that the Fox camp isn't feeling so confident? Why would the insurance company refuse the lower settlement? Could it be that they feel confident the board will win in court? Do you wonder how the OEC finding will impact the lawsuit if it goes forward? Speaking of the OEC, is it true that your buddy on the board is nervous? He ought to be. The word is there will be four seats open.
