Stahl: Best Good Old Boy

Matt Westerhold
Mar 23, 2010

City commissioner Craig Stahl was almost breathless when he read a letter to commission Monday from Erie County Prosecutor Kevin Baxter refuting the importance of another letter Baxter sent last week to Don Icsman and Matt Kline that stated the Murman report contained factual inaccuracies.

The way Stahl embraced Baxter's denial of his earlier admission that Murman got the "details" wrong was so sweet. Kevin must have taken all weekend to figure out how to word that second letter. Baxter had just finished writing it a half-hour before the commission meeting, Craig said. And Craig was just so excited to be the chosen messenger. He read it as if it were a letter from the Pope.

"Congratulations on being Kevin's water boy," I told Stahl after the public meeting ended.

"Maybe I am being his water boy," Stahl responded after some additional chiding.

Yeah Craig, that's exactly what you were when you delivered Baxter's second "cover your (behind)" CYA letter in less that a week.

It's just too bad you didn't have any time to address the Darden report, which was actually researched and thoughtful. While you encourage and celebrate Baxter's attempts to manipulate the process for Party and power, Darden actually did the work you should be doing: Digging for the truth.

But you were too busy trying to be the best Good Old Boy you could be to actually pay attention to "details."

As for your lame humor we know the schedule is weak we have known that already, yes your right look out for Norwalk but that 2 weeks away.. This is prolly the first time the Truckers have opened up with a win in 15 years... Oh n look out for the Tigers!

Rock never did stray away from a tough game thats one sane thing said on here. I would like to see some Region 10 teams on there and not the crappy one at the bottom. Jackon Jr better just stick to their schedule, we are still talking about a varsity squad that could see the like of 7-3 8-2

7-3 8-2 you kidding me in the sbc?They wont get by norwalk, nor, the big 3 in the sbc.You have to play the sbc you cant schedule cupcakes in the conference.

never talk trash about perkins...

they have owned you, bottom line

even if you win this year, you still must keep your mouth shut..

In the past 10 years, they have probably beat you on 40-6 on average

enough said

My thoughts

Perkins is playing a lot of Sophomores and building, in my opinion, for the next two years. Better win one this year truckers.

Is "Polar Bear" aware: 1)Don Wilson is the winningest football coach in the HISTORY of Margaretta? 2) Don Wilson is the most successful boys coach of any sport at Margaretta? (Measured by conference championships.) 3) Unless you people pass a levy, you don't have a prayer of hiring anybody who knows half the football of Don Wilson?

P.S. My advice is to support Don Wilson. I know the world of football coaches, and they're not vying for positon to take over Castalia High. He takes a bunch of undersized kids at the smallest public school in the league and makes them quite competitive as a team. Trust me, you can't and won't do any better.

great job panthers!

They are playing freshman too! I see where even the coaches son played !

Bottom line is if they were PLAYING midview and eastwood they would be 0-2!Great move to GET duncan hines on your schedule!

How can they keep getting beat on the ends? Where's the adjustment?
No punt return team either.
NO DEFENSE + NO SPECIAL TEAMS = LOSES!!
I just hope these kids don't get blamed. It's obvious they are only following their assignments.
And why all the coaches on the sidelines when only 2 or 3 are making all the calls?
