There is a site out there about Patrick Hickey and Jeremy Baumhower which probably steps across the lines of what is acceptable and what is not. Public figures have a high threshold to prove slander and libel and they have to prove there is malice in the presentation of speech. In this context, the phrase refers to knowledge or reckless lack of investigation, rather than its ordinary meaning of malicious intent.
According to the Blade:
Washington Local Schools Superintendent HIckey placed on paid leave again
The Washington Local Schools board of education has launched a new investigation of its embattled superintendent and placed him on paid leave while the board looks into new, unspecified allegations against him.
Patrick Hickey left the district’s administrative center on Lincolnshire Boulevard after a closed-door executive session tonight. He did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
I am providing a link to an article which shows -- unsurprisingly -- that those states with the highest percentage of citizens with college educations, also, generally, spend the most on k-12 education, AND have higher median incomes than do most other states.

The ConcernedStudent1950 right on the cusp of success went full retard yesterday.
Why would you be scared of journalists documenting a news story? The students (and at least one professor) are harassing a young journalist who dared to take photos in public which is entirely legal and protected by the 1st Amendment. Why are modern liberals so scared of a free press?
I know GZ has some good ideas.
Terri Kern also came across this particular nugget.
Late last week, Patrick Hickey sent an email to staff telling them not to communicate with a board member who was asking questions about his leadership.
I am not sure why he thinks this is appropriate because it is his actions that have aroused the curiosity of the board and community to try really to get to the bottom of what goes on in the district.
Washington Local reprimands Greenwood principal Bill Colon for illegal campaigning during open house
Terri Kern was able to pull this nugget of information out from Washington Local and I would have to applaud them for doing the right thing. This is much more than what Sylvania did when their employees were caught campaigning during school hours. Attached is the written reprimand of Bill Colon for making announcements during open house advocating for candidates.
Other than the Toledo Mayoral race, the next election that is getting the most discussion is the Washington Local School Board. Here is why this election is important:
School boards need to be the group in charge of a school district, and when you have an administration that seems to run roughshod around rules without care for consequences, it is time for the school board to re-assert itself. The superintendent is an employee of the board, not the other way around this is a fact that some out there seem to want to ignore.
Others have had their say on what you should support, but now it is time for you to sound off. There are lots of important races on the ballot this fall including mayorships, city council, school boars and issues. Who deserves our vote and who should we stay away from?
I know this is late, but wanted to put this out there so you can see the letter behind the story. So, what do you think?
EXCLUSIVE | Homeowners being 'bullied' by big gas?
RITTMAN, Ohio -- Some homeowners in Medina County say it may be the clearest proof yet of how they are being bullied by big gas and it is all on video.
Though there are counties across Ohio where natural gas surveyors have the right to go onto private land without an owner's permission, it has not been so clear-cut in Medina County.
Yesterday a Black teenage girl was attacked by a policeman while sitting at her desk in school. The video clearly shows that the girl did not try to physically attack the policeman .For MikeyA, and GZ, your arguments that Blacks are the problem is getting weaker and weaker. The use of video cameras is bringing out the truth.
Sandy Isenberg is not a "political analyst". Sandy Isenberg is nothing more than a talking loud mouth. FYI, she does not believe School Board Members are "real elected officials"! Hey Sandy, how is that roof holding up, https://news.google.com/newspapers?id=zYUUAAAAIBAJ&sjid=0QMEAAAAIBAJ&pg=...
The question is not if Washington Local violated state law during its Issue 2 levy campaign in 2014, but to what extent
Updated with Patrick Hickey's statement
My curiosity was stirred in watching everything going on at Washington Local and stirred even more once Superintendent Patrick Hickey blocked me on Twitter for stating the obvious. Seeing a disturbing behavior here I decided to look at some things that were done in the past to really get a grasp on how things are run in Washington Local….and I did not have to go far to find out how bad things were run during the 2014 Issue 2 levy campaign.
We can all agree that when you operate in a certain environment, there are some things that are well known to anyone including rules and regulations. If you pay a lawyer, you expect them to know the laws and proper procedures. But it seems like "Levy 101" items at Washington Local are missed by the leaders who are paid to know what is OK and not OK. There are no excuses on why these laws are being violated, and there are questions that the citizens of the district need to ask the board members and their administration (I don’t live in the district).
Washington Local Superintendent has threatened to sue a resident of the district for critical posts she made on her blog and on social media. Today, a lawyer for Superintendent Patrick Hickey asked Washington Local resident to delete blog posts and comments she made on social media about Hickey. This morning, Terri Kern was sent the following cease and desist letter by Dennis Pergram of Delaware, Ohio:
In an attempt to restore himself and one of his girlfriends to the local Board of Elections, Jon Stainbrook spent nearly $20,000 in local party funds to sue Jon Husted in the Ohio Supreme Court.
When all is said and done, the local Republican Party is out $20 grand it could have spent on other things such as money for candidates or funds for local party operations.
Corrupt Toledo magistrates!
