Any legal costs surrounding the defense of two Ruidoso Municipal School District education board members targeted by a group for recall will not be paid by the district, at least for the time being.

No wonder our kids are stupid. The political gesturing and egotisical posturing on the part of certain board members, and the public alike, based solely on the fact that they didn't like the suspension of Dr. Harris is a prime example of idiocy at its best. We can't expect excellence from a school district that is run by a board divided by a few petulant foot-stompers and an administrator that can't keep track $800K without an improvement one to show for it.

I appreciate Ms. Marshall for acting like a School Board president and sticking to her guns. The rest of the whiny, petulant, back-biting bunch need to knock it off and act like adults.

The board also should follow state law open meeting policies. A judge has ruled there is enough evidence to warrant a recall......... something else to consider. And I'm sure the Judge Ritter didn't stomp his feet when handing down his decision.

Following open meeting policies is one thing, but closed door sessions are allowed for personnel issues. The suspension of Dr. Harris is a personnel issue and not subject to the open meeting act.

Nobody said Judge Ritter stomped his feet. The entire mess was started by petulant foot-stompers. That's the only reason it made it to Judge Ritter's courtroom when it did.

I say let the investigation into Dr. Harris conclude. Let the results be presented and THEN determine if there is a need or justification for recall.
