The time is ticking on the appellate court for ruling on the matter of Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College. The term of one of the judges on the panel hearing the case expired on Feb. 5, 2021. That means the court should have reached a decision before the retiring judge left the court. The court has published no decision or explanation of what is going on as of [May 2, 2021]. The lack of a decision by the court suggests more delay since a new panel of judges may need to re-hear and decide the case.

It will be interesting to see how the court rules. The college has spent millions of dollars on legal fees to defend its position. Originally the Gibsons were willing to settle for just an apology. The powers that be on the BOT  and in the administration found that solution to be unacceptable. The cost so far for the BOT’s alternative solution is around $36M plus interest and attorney fees.

Manners are cheap and lawyers are expensive — a fact that was lost on the haughty elitists who needlessly created this mess.

Meanwhile, The Elyria Chronicle has reported the following cryptic story, which could conceivably be taken at face value. If you accept this at face value, JD is willing to sell you Oberlin’s Professor Street Bridge over Plum Creek for a good price.

OBERLIN — Oberlin College Vice President and Dean of Students Meredith Raimondo will step down from those roles, take a sabbatical at the end of the spring semester and return to Oberlin College as a tenured faculty member, the college announced Friday.

It is snowing today at ChaosFarm. It is hardly a serious snow because the MUDs (marauding urban deer) are managing to forage with no difficulty.

Even the squirrels are finding plenty to eat under the snow. This is particularly surprising considering that the squirrel population has exploded recently.
