Fred Fox indicted on falsification charges
The fact that Fox received a gift was not part of the investigation. Rather, Fox's alleged crimes stem from later failing to report a hotel stay, according to Tierney.
The investigation began in May 2012, when a three-person majority of Huron school board members agreed to submit a formal complaint to the Ohio Ethics Commission regarding Fox's alleged wrongdoing, which included an improper business relationship with a district vendor, improperly seeking reimbursements for a business trip and an extramarital affair on school time.
This month, Ault presented the commission's investigation to an Erie County grand jury, which then indicted Fox on one count of falsification, and one count of falsification of a financial statement.
Specifically, Fox did not report $1,007.32 in boarding and entertainment from Kalahari, and Kalahari employee Todd Nelson, Tierney said.
The indictments came as news to both Murray and Fox on Wednesday afternoon.
Fox contends three board members wrongfully terminated him and has a pending lawsuit against them, as well as the district.
Fred Fox, former superintendent of Huron Schools, was indicted by an Erie County grand jury last week, according to court documents the Register obtained this afternoon.
Ohio Attorney General spokesman Dan Tierney said Fox failed to disclose $1,007.32 in gifts he received in 2011 from both Kalahari Resorts, and Todd Nelson, a Kalahari Resorts employee.
Fox was indicted on two first-degree misdemeanors: falsification of a financial statement, and falsification.

What has Fox been doing for a living since being fired by Huron Public Schools. Sources say, he's been a house painter. Innocent enough. But what about the fact that he has also been working for Kalahari? Kinda like a few of the guys in the last Bush administration. Get indicted. Get convicted. Get pardoned. Become a commentator of FOX News. Sorry.
I don't believe the attorney general actually investigated Fox.
Fred Fox is a Huron Graduate. It didn't take 4 years to find out. It was known at the time all this started. It only took 4 years because no one in Erie County wanted to proffer charges against him. Every time they passed the buck, it took that much longer to begin reviewing evidence from the beginning, and decide to bail on the investigation because they were all drinking buddies of Fox.
Fox bought him a few drinks. Or at least his friends did.

Huron Schools needs to return the money spent by Kalahari on the football field since the Board felt so strongly about Fox having ties to Kalahari.
Only those 2 who consistently vote in favor of Fred Fox. At the same time, the football field money should not be returned. All through this proceeding, Fox attempted to force the community to accept his cries of innocence as being true, with threats of loss of community support by Kalahari. Misdirection of the issue. Keeping the money shows that you cannot buy public opinion. At the same time, it partially reimburses the district for what Kalahari should have been paying in property taxes, but didn't have to, because Fox gave them a "sweetheart" abatement. Finally. I have to ask a question. When was the last time you went out drinking with Fox? Did this little binge cloud your judgement of reality?

Other than trying to muddy the reputation of Tanny Vonthron, I personally don't see what was so horrible that Fox did.
1. Fred Fox stole district funds, to finance a dirty weekend out in Arizona with his mistress. Hotel and rental car expenses for several extra days, were tacked onto the legitimate expenses for a professional conference, just so he could get laid.
2. While he was supposedly on the clock, he was frequently out of the district, again, having sex with his mistress.
How many people, who did nothing immoral, went to bed every night, fearing the loss of their jobs, or their standing in the community, so that Fred Fox could fight these allegations? Julie, you are right in that this practice was immoral, I only mention this to show that more names should have been mentioned. And as for Saint Pete's roof crashing down. There is no hypocrisy or crucifixion of Fred Fox. Three responsible members of the Huron City Board of Education looked at the actions of an idiot and judged them fairly. They had given him the opportunity to resign his position, and move on. He chose to fight. He chose to fight dirty. The fact that it had to come to indictments is his fault. And his fault alone. None of this needed to have happened. His hubris is bringing about his downfall. If he had owned up to the immorality of his actions, he could be working right now, probably not in education, but still working. Instead, sometime within the next few days, there will be a knock on his door.
Well, Mr. Right, I do not know Fred Fox and I do not drink (alcohol). How you justify keeping the money Kalahari gave to the school system while berating Fred Fox for getting the stadium money is ridiculous.
If, at the time of the awarding of the first abatement, Mr. Fox had a good relationship with the board, and the board approved his recommendations regarding said agreement, the board then is equally responsible for any sweetheart deal. If the board votes in good faith because they were snowjobbed by Fox and Kalahari, that is another story.
FOX stole money from the district. FOX was out with his mistress when he was supposed to be on the clock. FOX accepted illegal gifts from contractors etc. FOX was indicted by the Erie County Grand Jury. FOX needs to take responsibility for his actions. His friends and supporters need to admit that they were/are wrong.
Never met Fred Fox.
FOX was responsible for every tax abatement granted during his tenure in office.
