Gerard Carbonaro’s admitting there was another incident of his inability to control his temper at the OHS football home game with Newtown, raises a serious issue. There are now three incidents, two previous ones lead to his removal as a coach from OHS sports. How long is the BoE going to ignore these public displays of bullying by one of their members? There are at least eight members, some of who have children in the schools, who should act on this serious issue. If Mr. Carbonaro’s bullying is allowed to pass without any meaningful consequences, what are our kids to think? Do they assume it’s OK to do likewise, that it’s the adult thing to do when you don’t like a ref’s or someone’s decision? Do they see people entrusted with their education too afraid or unwilling to do what is right? A lot of lessons to be learned here, by the kids, their parents and the voters. The question is which lesson. Watch and see if any of the eight willing to step up and do the right thing?

Ed, what can they do? He's elected, so he can't be kicked off the BOE. At the minimum, he should be removed by the Chair of all subcommittee duties and publicly reprimanded by the Chair and publicly asked for him to remove himself from the BOE. This person is a disgrace to Oxford and to all those who volunteer with good intentions. He is a coward for acting out like a spoiled brat!

Carl: Please check your email. The one that your Patch account is linked to. It's in regards to your recent blogs about this situation. I'm prepared to use the information; I just want to discuss this further. Thank you.

So when do you plan to run the story on Carbanarro and his football issue?

As soon as someone is willing to go on the record about what they've heard. So far, the only person who wants to do so - who claims to be someone named Carl Bassett - refuses to talk to me on the phone or in person. I have a feeling that person doesn't exist since he doesn't have children in the school system, isn't a registered voter and doesn't own property in Oxford. The school board is not investigating any issue, according to its chair, and neither is the superintendent. I know at least one other school board member is upset about this, but so far, he has not reached out to talk about it on the record. Right now, all we have is rumor and innuendo, plus official sources, including the police, saying that the description of what happened was a complete exaggeration. Other news outlets that have been contacted about this have said the same thing.
