Morris Reeves, Merrill Conant, The Dc3 Administration And Oh Yes Double 'b' Kathy Ramsour

Discussion in 'USD 443 and DCCC' started by THE COMMANDER, Jul 28, 2017.

    Okay gang, there has been a lot of livid interest about DCCC. Lots of fingers pointing here, there, and everywhere else. Lots of blame but little focus on who really matters. Let me illuminate the situation for everyone.

    Several people have posited about the previous Woodburn administration and no the Nolte/Johns administration.

    Bear in mind, these college presidents work at the 'pleasure of the board' as is in their employment contracts. This being said, it is also important to understand that these presidents are hired on with a majority vote of the DCCC (non) trustees.

    The majority rule on the board as of late has been of the Conant/Reeves oligarchy.

    Both Woodburn and Nolte are doing EXACTLY what Reeves and Conant tells them to do. It does not take much to figure that the Nursing school chaos, to the scam to build that damned dome with FEMA and donation dollars when in fact it was surreptitiously loaded onto the public debt, and to the wholesale handover of college property to build these 'Big Box' stores which may or may not succeed.

    Its been Morris Reeves and Conant in the background the entire time. Of course, they had help. Conant has his conflict of interests with his hired help physician Presley and a few others who were just inexplicably confused or bullied to give a 'yes' vote as well.

    As I have said before, connect the dots. Reeves and Conant have gotten their chosen administrator hired to push their agenda to totally destroy the college. Don't blame the administrators. They are only doing what they were hired to do and they only have to listen to the majority rule of the board. Of course most of this occurs in executive session so much of this is never revealed to the public.

    Now comes the primary election and Reeves and Conant has their new group. In on the oligarchy club is Gary Harshberger and Kathy Ramsour.

    Now I won't delve anymore into Harshberger's well-known and misguided approval of the FHSU takeover and instead I will give a little anecdote for their new initiate Kathy Ramsour.

    Good ol' Kathy Ramsour has decided to align herself with the Reeves/Conant oligarchy which by default means she is all for the FHSU takeover and every other idiotic initiative the DC Chamber has to destroy the college for their 'Big Box' store ambitions.

    A while back I sat in on some interviews where Ramsour was the focus. She was blustering to the people she was interviewing. She would begin the conversation with 'You know everyone calls me 'Double Bee' you know? The people she was interviewing would give this confused look; not understanding what the hell she was talking about. After this Kathy Ramsour would always respond "Blonde B!tch".

    Yeah I was astonished too at this dialogue. I was thinking 'This is the best that USD 443 has to offer?!' Here is this supposedly highly educated school administrator who takes pride in being called 'Blonde B!tch'. She took solace in this and thought by revealing this moniker, it would intimidate those she was interviewing. I was not impressed.

    Its been my observation that good leaders do so by not intimidating others but by working to gain a consensus. It is unfortunate for anyone who is under her management structure and has to be subjected to her 'Double B!tch' management techniques. You don't go around and intimidate people and take perverse pride in such a moniker. Sorry, you don't unless you are one of the egotistical kind of megalomaniacs such as Gary Harshberger who wants to bully the rest of any dissenting Trustees.

    So, now Kathy Ramsour wants undoubtedly bring her 'Double B-Blonde B!tch' facade to the DC3 Board of Trustees. Well she couldn't have picked a worse group of anti-college trustees to buddy up with.

    No that certainly doesn't work for me and it doesn't work for effective democratic leadership at DC3.

    Kathy Ramsour won't be getting my vote. She can go back to Northwest School and be a Blonde B!tch to her employees and not at DC3.

    Ramsour knew nothing about the college at the forum, and used tried and true administrative speak. She trumpeted the use of iPads in instruction, an experiment that already had failed at the college.
    Reeves claimed he was fooled by Woodburn at the forum. He claims to know numbers, but could not understand if the initial donations did not meet expectations with no real donations for the dome after that it was a burden? He also in essence with Conant voted for an athletics only facility. Yes I know they may have put the fitness center in there but it was an afterthought.
    Harshberger bankrupts a 96 million dollar business before it starts, and investors never really were able to recoup any money and he thinks he is a leader. He screams at Malone for stopping the college being dissolved for the FHSU fallacy.
    Conant has lied constantly and let the Ford county scholarship disappear. It is back now, but good luck actually seeing them awarded to all that should receive them. He and Reeves with Floris Jean clearly think the public is too stupid to notice when they try to present the President's evaluation of his vote of no confidence.
    I am elated they outed themselves yesterday in the ad that alludes to statements that are impossibly false.

    The FHSU takeover and the current mess are two separate issues, I think. The white paper takeover would have destroyed the college. Malone and his minions are destroying it in another way. I guess take your pick.

    I don't get it. How is Malone destroying the college?

    Somehow everyone and their dog has been sued by Peter Antosh since Malone has been on the Board. He was for the land sale then against it and riles people up for no apparent reason with no apparent outcome in mind.

    Let's see the land sale certainly was not even remotely adequate in the pay for the mland, and long term sets precedents for the loss of all the land which was the original plan. Seems to me the point of being a trustee is to protect the college.
    If the Antosh law suit is in reference to the student kicked out of school for 4 years for saying the president should resign sign then that would be a service to the constitution. Freedom of speech should not be limited like that and unjustified use of power needs to stop out there. I have heard that the only thing that was used against the student was the president said he was scared without a rationale. I am glad some lawyer in town stepped up to the plate and will actualLy represent someone without th out huge money resources.
    How many more suits are there? I have heard of open record requests being denied without any attempt to fulfill them, but I have not heard what they entail.. Is that another lawsuit? If so then just release the information what is being hid? What are the other lawsuits?

    Very interesting. I guess we'll see how it shakes out.

    More on lawsuits. Malone at the last meeting mentioned an audit to examine the 8.5 million lawsuit the federal government has against Dccc for overcharging fees during Nolte's tenure to the V.A.. Harshberger, despite the fact that the lawsuit is public knowledge claimed executive session. As such the college does not have an idea how or where the overcharging occurred, Malone has stated that he as a board member has no knowledge of the lawsuit so maybe an audit would help. It also might be questioned why the Chief Financial Officer now is paid $123,000, but could allow that kind of overcharge. This is just as sad as the Lyle Van Nahman lawsuit were the person in charge who refused due process and violated free speech got over $20,000 in raises and now makes $113,000. This is the same lady who mishandled and lost information on title IX lawsuit.

    Wait wait wait. "Malone...mentioned..." then "Malone ...has no knowledge..." Which is it?

    He mentioned it quite easily because as everyone knows there is a lawsuit for 8.5 million against the college. As usual nothing is released to the public, and only the President, Reeve's, and select otheRs have information. An audit specified to do look at more than a balance sheet would shed light on how and why it happened. Malone like everyone who can read knows there is a lawsuit, don't try to act ignorant and play as if there is a hidden agenda by Malone. In this case your incredulity points to you being a part of a huge mess that needs cleaned up so the school can survive and maybe one day prosper again. I need the school so my children can get an affordable quality education. All I see is a group of board members save Malone dismantling a school and destroying the people like instructors and staff that care about it. I see administrators selling their soul for money and forgetting the mission of providing a quality education. Besides I abhor people who bully, lie, and try to destroy reputations. It is no wonder why 40 people have quit in the last 2 years. The stats come from Mia Korbelik's sight and she has integrity.

    In yet another case, a U.S. attorney has convened a federal grand jury in Arizona regarding a helicopter flight instructor program. In that probe, subpoenas have been issued to some DCCC employees and former employees for records.

    This was in the Hutchinson paper before the primary vote. Maybe you are right the details that an 8.5 million dollar lawsuit had been filed against the college had not been released, but the question is why? It would not effect the lawsuit to let it be known in Dodge that a lawsuit had come from the subpoenas, where they hiding it from the ford county citizens for a reason? It seems like no information that should be public knowledge is being released. The president's office released selective information with information selectively redacted beyond what was allowed to give the appearance the administration is addressing improprieties. Where was the report on the settlement with Roger Proffitt and the extra money the school paid out beyond his salary after he took the fact to court. I am told that there have been emails that were requested one year ago from open records have still not been released. You would think that by now the administration at the college could have erased all the incriminating emails by this time and released the information. Coffee you still have not looked into the Lyle Van Nahman lawsuit, and the college never has even mentioned it or listed it as something occurring. Something is rotten at that college and the dearth of public information is damning.

    Thanks, I did not see that in the Hutch paper....I don't know anything about the Van Nahman lawsuit, sorry. And it doesn't look like the college has been sued for $8.5 million. The Hutch paper thing says grand jury has been convened and so from my Law and Order watching days that means there hasn't been a lawsuit. Isn't that to decide if charges will be filed?

    Coffee, a lawsuit can be filed separate from a grand jury, lawsuits are civil action and have a lower standard of responsibility to be meet. a grand jury is for determining if a criminal action has occurred, involving an individual, or organization, ie corporations, limited partnerships, or businesses, which usually leads to the issuance of criminal summons or a warrant and injunctions.
