There was an article in the Enterprise the week of September 6th about a woman named Carol Uebelacker whose daughter goes to Meadow View Elementary School. I am truly disgusted that Ms. Uebelacker ran to the local newspaper because of a perceived problem with what SHE expects Meadow View Elementary to do for her child and what she is actually ENTITLED TO with regards to services for her child. Ms. Uebelacker "gets it", but she doesn't "like it", so she's doing what she always does: Complain, Complain, Complain.(Ms. Uebelacker seems to complain A LOT! She doesn't like her neighbors boathouse, she doesn't like the Oconomowoc School District, and I'm sure that tomorrow she'll find something or someone else to gripe about!)

As for the Oconomowoc Enterprise, this story did not qualify as news. The Enterprise knew that the school district couldn't comment about specific students because of privacy laws, yet that didn't stop the Enterprise from not only reporting this story, but making the school district look uncaring and like they were hiding something. The Enterprise published 1/2 the story, and the school district cannot legally provide you with the other half.

Maybe you should have Ms. Uebelacker sign a waiver, allowing the district to answer any and all questions that the Enterprise wants to ask. My guess is that Ms. Uebelacker won't sign that kind of a waiver, because then the truth would come out. The last thing Ms. Uebelacker wants is for everyone to know the truth.

And I suspect that if the Enterprise knew the truth, they'd have to eat some crow and have to write a public apology to the Oconomowoc Area School District for writing an article that only told half the story and none of the truth.
