FRANKFORT, Ky.(AP) The attorney general's office has found the Martin County school district violated the state's open records law by not publicly releasing email, letters and memos exchanged between the superintendent and board members.

Assistant Attorney General Amye L. Bensenhaver issued that finding late last week and released it to the public on Monday.

The Mountain Citizen editor Gary Ball had requested all forms of written communications between the superintendent and board members since January 2011.

Superintendent Mark Blackburn said that information is protected by federal law and that the correspondence may contain private information about employees or students.

Bensenhaver said Blackburn's response "constituted a procedural violation" of the state's open records law. She said the district should redact protected information and turn the rest over to the newspaper.

wondering from williamson asks, What happens now? easy answer. the mountain citizen prints all the truth about EVERYTHING, even about their friend the inez prosecutor that was recently sent to jail for 3 years. the paper wont just print about mark blackburn, like in the past, but will finally print the other story. you dont think so, just because the paper has never printed a word about the lawyer? just wait and see.

Jesus dude, do you have to sh*t up every post with your hate for the moc? Leo will do a month at most. The mountain citizen will never print anything about it. Get the hell over it. Whats going on with Blackburn is something that's actually serious.

Mark Blackburn will have no choice but to release those records to Gary Ball. So in the next few weeks the Mountain Citizen should have some really good stuff in it. I myself would like to know where all the money went to.

the mountain citizen got an opinion from the attorney general that mb should release emails and records. that is news and should be reported. if the ag had prosecuted mb for not filing and paying taxes for 6 years and if the ag had got mb sent to jail for 3 years, would that be news that the mc would report? would the mc print that story? you know damn well that the answer is yes. why, phil, does paper not print about another public official, a prosecutor, that gets prosecuted and sent to jail? are you a paper pimp? or, will you give honest answers?

I'm not going to respond to you about it. People have told you time and time again why this is the case. And you've yet to make a good argument against it.

This thread, like many of others that you post in have nothing to do with Leo. So I'm going to ask very politely. Please stop derailing threads that have nothing to do with Leo and keep it in your own. If you don't, I encourage everyone to start reporting you for spam. Because that's what you're doing. Please stop. Stay in your own threads.

Now. Back on topic. Not really sure what comes next. But their has to be some pretty bad stuff in all of those emails for Blackburn to want to hide them. It's going to get pretty good I think.
Hmmm

I agree. For Mr. Blackburn to try to weisle out of providing those e-mail, they have to be trying to cover something up. If they weren't, they would have just given Mr. Ball the e-mails.

Idk, I just think its kinda funny. I'd like to see Mark hang on the court house lawn by his ball sack. That is, if they can find it. Oh wait, it may be in his wife's purse. Go figure.

If you remember the big uproar from the early 1980's when the school board tried to remove then superintendent, Dan Branham, the chairman (person) of e board was Mark Blackburns mother in law. I'd say she's at it again....
