If I remember right didn't you menace and threaten to kill a bank teller at the old Sky Bank here in Springboro back in 2002, then subsequently try to sue the city? And wasn't your conviction upheld and your libelous suit thrown out by the Supreme Court of Ohio after wasting the court's time and our tax dollars?

Obviously Weidemann went to the same class on how to pay your bills that Kelly Kohls attended before her bankruptcy.
Our school children deserve better than Kelly Kohls with her bankrupty, Jim Rigano with his gun fetish, and Doug Weiedemann with his anger issues.
Just Watching...
Our school children and community taxpayers deserve better
than Springboro Education Association's priority of both money and power. That means our children's best interest holds Third place on the Teachers Union agenda. Springboro, We can afford teachers who will put our children FIRST! Why should we settle for less?

The Kelly Kohls you're referring to may exist in another universe, possibly on the opposite side of a wormhole.
In THIS universe, Dr. Kelly Kohls, President of Springboro Board of Education, is 100% dedicated to seeing that district resources are managed in such a way that our children receive the best educations possible. I have known Kelly since before she was elected. Dr. Kelly Kohls does not attempt to bully anyone into accepting her set of beliefs, nor does she ask others to compromise their beliefs. What she does a great deal of is encourage the public's participation in helping her (with progressive groups such as OSBLC) to improve the overall future for education.
After years of empty threats to the public and fiscal neglect neglect through Baker & Detwiller, Kelly's BOE has a huge measure of respect from this entire community for bringing accountability to Springboro schools. So, who are these anti-Kohls naysayers? Like Kohls, these anti-Kohls naysayers are 100% about the best educations possible for Springboro's students.
The key difference is philosophy in that the anti-Kohls effort being led by the SEA is all about this Scott Maney wet-dream: Toss taxpayers' money straight up into the air! First create a need, then fill it with tax dollars! Maney will tell you straight to your face that the secret ingredient in keeping that good ol' Panther Pride a rollin' is securing extra cash flow, especially into the back pockets and purses of the teachers!!
Because they support the educational needs of Springboro schools students, Miller, Kohls, Rigano, Petroni & Kull must support teachers. However, in this context, the word "support" should not in any way be confused with the phrase... "pay eternal homage to". Any responsible, functional public school Board of Education will attempt to work together in a PRACTICAL, FISCALLY RESPONSIBLE MANNER for the mutual benefit of everyone connected to that given district- students, teachers/staff, parents/ taxpayers as well as business owners.
Open Springboro I'm so glad you brought up the subject of snakepits. There's no question the majority of district voters would much rather have Kohls and her Tea Party connection than have any association with the local socialist sympathizing organization Springboro Education Association - led by Scott Maney, the slimiest of snakes to be found in the pit.
... and the people said Amen!

... and the people said Amen!

The Springboro Education Association teachers, led by their arrogantly proud leader, Scott Maney, should be VOTED out of town the Great American Way at the polls in November! It is proven that the public service unions own the politicians (including the governor) in the Ohio state house, no matter who wins elections; Scott Maney has abused his SEA political power that enslaves homeowners to the hostile union take-over and union occupation in Springboro. Scott Maney has persistently and tirelessly bullied and persecuted our BOE elected official, Kelly Kohls, falsely accusing this Springboro parent of not being the right "fit" to lead his wealthy school district, simply because Kelly Kohls was not "Wealthy" enough to represent the big and rich Springboro school yard bullies! Mr. Maney has led the rallying cry that "there shall be no respect given to the less fortunate; nor to the least of these (our children first)..... Not in Mr. Maney's union occupied community!

Scott Maney, President of the SEA, has consistently and persistently refused to recognize and respect the free democratic election of Kelly Kohls, because the Wealthy SEA members/union activists judged Kelly Kohls unfit for public office because she was too poor to represent the Wealthy homeowners in our "fake and overly-inflated with false pride affluent Springboro school district." Shame on Mr. Maney! Just imagine our great nation being deprived of the wise leadership of Abraham Lincoln, IF the wealthy educators/politicians of his day refused his service because he was "too poor to serve the wealthy?"

Our SEA president does not honor the very basic foundation of this great nation's government process -- the orderly transfer of leadership power. November is the time for all free men and women to go to the polls and vote the false teachers of Unionism out of our children's future education. Education to the SEA is all about money and power and who controls both. Springboro voters have the power to keep control of our money by voted NO to renewal levy for teachers pay increases. Cut off the money supply and the Union Teachers will scurry out of the Boro in pursuit of their first love of money and power! Springboro loves our Children First.
Just VOTE NO to Union Power and Big Money in November! Help us help you keep Springboro free of Union occupation in our children's classrooms!

I'm sorry, but maybe I am a bit naive. I have never been on the "tea party circuit" can you explain what that is?
Maybe throw in a few specific examples of Dr Kohls "threatening to "threatening" to continue with disrespectful "bullying" of our parents and teachers, until they "listen" to her demands that the Board be given "respect."
In all seriousness, I have never been to a Tea party event, never donned a tri corner hat, never even vsupported a teap party candidate hat I am aware of. But can you explain to me what is so god awful about those that engage in grass roots organizatonis such as the tea party? What have they done as an organization that has left such a venomous taste in your mouth?
Kelly Kohls involvement in the Tea Party affects her performance on the BOE how? Should we not be proud to have someone such as a Dr Kohls as our BOE President, that is involved in and respected by other organizations. Or would you rather have the bump on a logs that we have had in the past that show up at BOE meetings, look at their phones and watches all night long, rubber stamp whatever the SEA demands without ever questioning the status quo?
Me? I'll take the person that is not afraid to be involved, ask tough questions, do research, make informed decisions, then have the guts to stand behind them. Some might call that leadership. Too bad recent past BOE presidents, Scott Anderson, Craig Colston come to mind, lacked that quality...IMHO.
... and the people said Amen! Time to just say NO RENEWAL to
Mr. Maney's big collection plate in November 2013!

Time to vote NO on all November tax collection requests for union employees pay increases in Springboro!
Vote No on both new and renewal levies.
Our public service union employees do not need more money!
We the people know better how to spend our money!

As per usual you would be hopelessly incorrect in your assertions. People were begging Mr. Harves to show them the books so they could put the Budget and Finance Committee in its rightful place.
Remember the Budget and Finance Committee began asking for these records in January 2012, as part of their look into the pay to participate program and athletic financing.
Month after month the requests for financials went out from the Budget and Finance Committee to the booster board, each time came the reply they were working on getting them together.
It would be another 6 months before the boosters would finally get a look at Mr. Harves' accounting program.
By then (IMHO) well more than a million bucks had fled the coop under the watchful eyes of the booster board.
Let's face it, if the guy has the cojones to write checks to himself for $439,000 for seven years (that is as long as bank records are required to be held and thus as far back as the investigation could go)
do you really believe he had any moral uncertainty about reaching into a bag full of uncounted cash?
This man ran the finances for 20 years, how much do you think he shortchanged our kids?
And who made up the difference between what was needed and what was diverted?
The answer to that is simple, parents of the student athletes who did the work and donated the money.
Is it true that the Union First agenda has overruled our school district taxpayers' new philosophy of Children First; and the settlement of contract to avoid conflict of a strike, reverses control of taxpayers money to union power of 2006, as if five failed requests for union pay increases, and two school board elections, has never happened?

Awww, good grief. Big deal. So, he got mad and hurled a few expletives. I wouldn't get your panties in a wad over that.
At least this man has the guts to stand up and speak his mind and provide the community a wealth of information on the 'proficiency' of our school district.

On target...what a useful analogy for a person that routinely threatens to kill people he disagrees with.

Perhaps it isn't that people don't openly want to rebut him, but that they're more concerned he will stalk them and hunt them as prey as he seems to do with all those that disagree with him.

This Weidemann guy should be behind bars and no longer a threat to our community.

Congratulations to all our retirees who have escaped the persecution of unionism. Thank You for your great contributions to our school children and community! Life is good outside the tent of unionism. Enjoy!

Now can you provide taxpayers a to do list on how to get our work place freedom from the enslavement of the union masters:
Scott Maney and Sarah Thornbury and Gail Dauber?

Here's Number One on the list just to get your problem solving "critical thinking" skills headed in the right direction for our children's 21st Century Education:

Number One: Stop this proposed $9.2 Million cash flow from entering into the Treasury of the Springboro Education Association Union dues.

Just think about it... Why should a free citizen in America be forced to pay tribute to a union in order to get, or keep, a job.
Big labor's power of forced unionism has crippled America's competitive edge; forced countless companies overseas; and polluted our political process for nearly half a century!

Springboro, do we want to invest $9.2 Million Renewal for the next FIVE years in the corruptive power of Mr. Maney's big labor union party? Where's the Celebration in that?
