Darlene Fisher is holding a press conference at 2:30 today

To address the Harner situation. All interested parties - feel free to attend. I will surely be there to hear for myself. At the Sanger Branch. Map is here: http://maps.yahoo.com/maps_result?addr=3030%20West%20Central%20Ave.&csz=...

No votes yet

And I saw WSPD there, so maybe the 6:00 show on 1370 a.m. as well. Mrs. Fisher gave a good presentation and confirmed an information blackout to her from the negotiation team. I am just shocked that this has come to the point that a good opportunity, a full year of time and a minimum of $50,000.00 of our money has been potentially lost.

Mrs. Fisher said that she will advocate to the board re-approaching Dr. Harner to try to re-open negotiations. I hope that the board does so this time in an honorable and forthright manner.

It is very interesting to note that after a 5-0 vote to enter into negotiations Mr. Sykes would have been expected to present an offer for employment to Dr. Harner. What he did instead of doing the right thing was to take action in the last week of February to produce documents to actually try to break down the process.

There was a well discussed split with Dr. Harner and the Greenville S.C. school system. It had been discussed during the interview process and readily explained.

So, what DID Mr. Sykes actually DO when he was tasked to negotiate for the employment of Dr. Harner? He went and gathered up the documents from the Greenville situation and sent them to the search firm in an attempt malign Dr. Harner.

If you're here to tell me it's my fault - you're right. I meant to do it. It was alot of fun. That's why I have this happy smile on my face.
