Yes, Mr. Principal, you’re gonna learn a lot about Sheldon Berman’s travels and any excesses in the near future. Hopefully he’s not wasting taxpayer dollars willy nilly.Following the Bluegrass Airport, UK Pharmacy and Lexington Library stories, perhaps this is a reasonable issue to look into. But it looks like Page One is going to get it's wish - that no taxpayer dollars are being wasted here.
A cursory glance at Berman's travel over the past two years is about as exciting as watching paint dry. On his own time, Berman missed 5 days of work in 2007-08 and three days in 2008-09, on trips paid for by the organizations he works with. I'm not sure how many other superintendent's records would hold up so well. Absent receipts for expensive gifts or money paid for dancing girls and alcohol - I'm just not seeing a problem.
There's nothing to see here. Move along.
Similarly, I don't get today's piece which uses the wrong law to draw a wrong conclusion.
We’ve discovered a few more potential problems for Jefferson County Public Schools Superintendent Sheldon Berman that, in our opinion, happens to be the epitome of the appearance of impropriety....Long story short: We still think Berman has a lot of explaining to do.
Now, I love a good scoop as much as the next blogger, but I just don't see any evidence of impropriety here. I suspect this investigation is going nowhere fast.
