BOARD COMMENTS (8:00 p.m.)


43. Board Comments
Barbara Harvey: "As we address the real characteristics of an effective board, we will find the ability to solve problems as a team, indivdual integrity, and a high level of trust to be priorities." In addition to other remarks regarding board productivity and unity, Harvey also said that members of a team "should not seek to be offensive" but to always have respect. 
Karen Carpenter: Referring to the recognition of accomplishments by the Southeast High School girls basketball team and coach John Harder, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Speech Contest Winners, Carpenter noted the positive results that can happen when students and their teachers or coaches cooperate at a high level.
Bob Gause: "We had a great workshop, and I appreciate all the updates." Praised MTI, and reminded people to expect more kids in the road when driving during Spring Break. 
David Miner: "I regret that a statement I made (during the prior week's workshop) was misunderstood and incorrectly reported in the press. I apologize to Mrs. Harvey for my comments being misunderstood, and the resulting hurt feelings. My comments were not directed to anyone but myself."
(Author's note: Mr. Miner recently contacted TBT regarding the article published about the March 3 workshop, advising that "he did not call Harvey or any other member of the board a 'lapdog' or any other name, and that stating 'the people who voted for me did not elect me to be a lapdog,' was meant only by way of explanaining his own position." The reporter regrets penning the assertion that "Harvey left the table after Miner implied that she was a 'lapdog'" in that article. To clarify what transpired: the statement Mr. Miner gave that immediately preceded Mrs. Harvey's retort expressing offense was, "I'm not gonna be a lapdog, and I'm not gonna go along with lapdogs, Mrs. Harvey." Mr. Miner's quote that "the people who voted for me did not elect me to be a lapdog," was said prior to that statement. The referenced article has also been updated with this same information.)
