The board went into a closed section and then when the meeting was re-opened only the media was left to watch
The closed session seemed to be about the salary of a principal

Brazil beats blue 5-1 at Loop Field this Afternoon

We were told that the score was 5-1.  Brazil is the team in yellow.  We don't know who the blue team is and after they were beaten so badly we were afraid to ask.

Brazil jumps over Blue near the Blue goal line


The final goal of the game scored by Brazil in yellow, two defenders from the blue team
try to block the ball.  The blue team's goal keeper on the far left is wearing all red.

Some sort of depute with the referee after the final goal was scored

I was shocked and dismayed at the board's meeting on Tuesday

As a resident of the City of Shelton I was shocked and dismayed at the
conduct of Jim Carnahan at the board's meeting on Tuesday, October 14,
2014, a piece of which can be watched at the following link:

This was not even the most offensive portion of Mr. Carnahan's outburst
Tuesday night, just the part caught on tape.

What superintendent in his or her right mind would want to come to Shelton
with Mr. Carnahan on the board?

None.

None in their right mind would come to work with such a board member.

We will be lucky to get any applicants at all with Mr. Carnahan on the
board.

Given the fact that the law offends Mr. Carnahan, and that he is unable to
accept it, much less help to implement it, I respectfully request that Mr.
Carnahan resign from the school board effective immediately.

There can be no moving forward for our district with such a divisive
figure dominating the board and exhibiting such aggression towards the
other board members.
