This had to do with the availability of a document that should have been available for the public to see.

I got up, earlier in the meeting, and raised a ‘Point of Order‘ on it.

I was told by Superintendent Lander that a printed copy of the document was made available with the other papers, e.g., agenda and minutes.

The document was not there.

So having patiently waited till I was again permitted to speak, at the 2nd ‘public input’ slot, I question Lander as to where the document is or was.

Well you can, IF you have bionic hearing, since ACS appears to have doctored the sound, hear Lander say something along the lines of “I don’t know”!

That is great.

You can see that I was not amused. This, the ‘Breaking Glass‘ meeting, was FAR from funny. Probably one of the saddest and most disturbing public meetings I have ever attended. This day should go down in infamy as a very sad day for Alton.



Deanna has already contacted SAU about the UNACCEPTABLE sound on this video
— a VERY important one that every resident in Alton should watch.

Again I stress that none of this is making me rich or famous.

My goal, as an inveterate raconteur, is to elucidate.
Hence the 99 cent pricing.
I am used to being poor.

But, the book is now among the best sellers in ASTRONOMY
— not just comets, asteroids and meteors.

That is neat. Makes me amused. And that to ME, is all that matters.

About a month ago I noticed a sudden SPIKE in the interest in this post — which kind of surprised me since, like most things related to ACS other than building renovation, nobody in Alton appears to give a damn about ACS-related matters whether it be Common Core, Strategic Plan involvement, lack of safety glass in the school, Destination Imagination (DI), etc. etc.

The hits have continued daily and I know that MOST are not from within NH. That a kind, gentle lady, a fellow author, commented on it from Nevada shows that this post is getting widespread attention. And I am glad — though it does NOT help us in Alton, N.H. per se.

I, despite my best efforts, have failed miserably in trying to get a modicum of accountability from this outlandishly arrogant, ‘gag the public’, and totally dysfunctional, School Board. Well now at least others can see what I have had to contend with. That is some consolation. If nothing else I will document the charade in my vain, but probably now incorrect, belief that ‘the pen‘ has some might.

Contrary to what some think this blog is read around the world and most of my hits are from OUTSIDE New Hampshire — which delights me no end given that I really am, in the end, a bona fide denizen of the world.
