I read it too and kept thinking where the hell was a third person who could be a witness. Being around young people like this should never come down to he said/she said. Dumb move if no other adults were around. Lot of places that have adults around kids mandate always two adults to protect both sides

I thought about this Jim, now you mentioned that. Heck... the Color guard staff at Lower Dauphin when I was there (counts on fingers) had at least 3-5 individuals depending on the rehearsal. MHS had at least 2-3 as well. You'd reasonably think this BoA level band in the article had several guard instructors at every rehearsal, wouldn't you? At least 2 in the form of the Caption head and assistant, or Caption Head and Dance Specialist.... I can go on...

My wife and I attended Cadets brass camp yesterday. Had some good conversations with some people on the inside of things. Many involved with the corps right now are taking positive steps to help the C

As I try to fight back tears, since my students are in the room right now as I read all this, all I can say right now is...  Thank God for DCP.  Reading here and seeing this conversation tak

I felt nauseated reading this.  Fear for the activity, this needs to be exposed and dealt with not just at Cadets but everywhere, but I’m so scared it’s going to overwhelm the whole activity.  Sadness

With regard to the vehicle and the laptop and whatever other physical property he may still have, I would imagine he could argue that since he hadn't been fired until yesterday, he didn't not see an issue there.

I understand the publicity, the way it looks, the situation and everything else discussed... but, is that not par for the course for him?  Has he not, for a period of time, shown that he does not have that filter or care to even acknowledge that that filter exists, let alone care what others think?

He's a yam bag.  Nothing that may come out in the future will surprise me.  

 

Karma, Earl

Now if you can find evidence that someone complained to the board and the complaint was ignored, then it is an entirely different situation.  If the complaint was brought to the attention of an individual board member and they withheld that information from the board, I suspect that individual would have a problem.  If the complaint was discussed at a board meeting and swept aside, that would also be problematic.  The board minutes should be available.  That should tell you what the issues were that were discussed at the meetings.  

Stay tuned...

I agree with most of this but when you resign, you also have to return what belongs to the company /organization.   The car, the cellphone, the laptop, etc.

Just a thought - someone should drive over to the house, knock on the door, get the keys, and drive the car back.  Has anyone even attempted that?  I doubt that GH feels like driving back to the office and dropping the car off.  "Hey, you..you look good....how ya been?...."   No, I suppose he won't be showing his face anywhere near there, so someone best go and retrieve the car.
