Dr. Barwick doesn't "lead" the Board of Trustees...but he does come up with some good ideas and is very capable of expressing them. His execution of Board policy as President of the College is excellent.

As for the current Board members, that is democracy in action. If you know of better candidates, encourage them to run next time...

I never said I thought that the Board didn't need some changes, did I? Au Contraire...I think we would be better served with Kays gone, and I have no use for Caston or Fienen either...now are you happy?

It is my sole purpose in life right now to make you happy...

Like I said in my earlier post, it's democracy in action, and if the electorate can't get off their keesters and go vote their convictions, then they get the representation they deserve...

Bitching on Topix about the way things might have been is pointless...

Exactly, Indy. If you don't vote or take part in elections, then you get what you deserve.

College employee here. Two thoughts. First, Jay Jones is a good, businesslike board chair. Go to a meeting if you don't believe me. Second, if you don't like Jones, remember that the amiable dunce Hoite Caston will soon be one of the more senior board members. If he became chair...(shudder)

Planning and Zoning Board is an appointive board and the appointments are made by the City Commissioners.

Probably a Country Club thing, but if you are interested, make your interest known to the Commission...that is IF you are a truly a "regular people"...

Actually, Caston is all three: smart, crazy, and mean. Seriously.

College employee and political watcher here: Every community eventually has an elected official like Caston. He was elected as a mathematical fluke: a large number of people split the "sane people" vote, and the anti-sports, pro-theater liberals turned out for Caston. But it's always a mistake to elect a crazy person, even if that crazy person agrees with you on some things. He's a real morale-killer at the college. But we're stuck with him.

I can tell that the faculty see Caston as nothing but a messenger boy. In our meetings, it's always "go to Hoite with it" and "Hoite will carry the water for us." But they don't have any more respect for him than anyone else does.
