Joelle Ogletree Update of May 2009-Spoke at the GRISD (Glen Rose ISD) School Board Meeting Last Week

28 May 2009 at 7:11:40 PM

I was, as readers know, down at the NAIS (National Animal Identification System) "Listening Tour* in Austin last Wednesday, so missed the school board meeting. We like to attend when we can for a lot of reasons. I heard that Joelle Ogletree spoke in citizen comments at the meeting about a letter that she had gotten from open records regarding her situation. I asked her for the letter and post it herein, along with a snippet of audio from the meeting.  Short MP3 

It is my understanding that a member or members of this board have said that no one has asked that you do what is right concerning me.  My husband previously referenced two letters the district received regarding this that we were aware of.
In a recent open records request, I received additional communication that I did not receive through my first request.  One of those letters is what I would like to share with you this evening.

and PDF of the letter.

Incidentally, here was when her husband spoke before the board back in December.

and here as a refresher is a compile from Dr Phil.

If you didn't read about the case, the supporting documents, including original court trial which was declared a mistrial and the ALJ hearing which declared that the boys were not telling the truth, are here.

Now, I just want to say a few things. Ms Ogletree has had this case disrupting her life for over six years. SIX YEARS. I can't even imagine it. The last I looked GRISD and their attorneys went for a summary judgment to get the civil case Ogletree has against them dismissed, and they got it. Before that point, she had finally managed to get a secured court date to get her case heard, as you might think would happen in this great country of ours; that was supposed to be in April. But instead, she then had to appeal the decision of Judge Wayne Bridewell, whose decision, incidentally, the last time regarding her was overturned by the court of appeals. Time chugs on and eventually she will get her day in court. I hope for her sake that is soon.

I still believe what I wrote back in November 2007, before I ever had the opportunity to meet Ogletree in person.

I would just like to say I know the Ogletree family and they are wonderful...I would not change tables at a restaurant. In fact I would be more than happy to have lunch with them. I think some adults forgot what it was like to grow up in High School. Who are we really going to trust ..High School Teacher or High school Guys...

   My heart goes out to The Ogletree family, and Joelle in particular.  I cannot imagine how totally consuming and overwhelming this has been on her life. I believe her to be an upstanding, intelligent, and classy woman. That an immature, egotistical, and lying clod can disrupt one's life in such a way,is a sad commentary on our society today. I hope that she finds the inner resolve and strength to see this to the end, holding her head high. I wish her well...
