Gilpin Quiet, Rozell Missing
Today's Board of Education meeting, held before a standing-room only crowd of supporters of Schools Superintendent Janet Barresi, has been quiet.
Board member Tim Gilpin, who last month criticized Barresi and refused to approve her employment of three top assistants, has been quiet.
Former Democratic Senator Herb Rozell, whose comments last month outraged many, is missing.
For the first time in anyone's memory, an Oklahoma Highway Patrol trooper is on hand to provide security.
