--- Cross-posted to another forum.

One of the people listed in the Times News article as a member of the Mercyhust board of trustees is Mary Ann Bauldauf.

Mrs. Baldauf is a member of the Mead family, and is one of the heirs to the Erie Times News newspaper holdings.

Kathy Zurn, Owen McCormick, Frank Victor, Gary Renaud, Bruce Raimy, Thomas Gamble, are also named

as members of the board. It's hard to imagine anyone within this group speaking up against Garvey and demanding any change of the "Status Quo" up at Mercyhurst.

No wonder Mercyhurst didn't want the names of their full board of trustees released! A closer examination of the board members shows that this group is made up of a bunch of patsys who were not going to speak up and rock the boat. No way was this group about to demand a full accounting from Garvey or demand the resignation of Marlene Mosco. Let's examine a few people.

Kathy Zurn - Her family has given loads of money to Mercyhurst over the years, and the college has done what it could to reciprocate the favor. Not just with putting her on the board, but also check out the lavish, fawning articles written about Ms. Zurn in issues of the Mercyhurst magazine, a publication which exists solely for kissing the butts of the "right people" at Mercyhurst and stroking their egos.

Owen McCormick - The McCormick construction company has been awarded a great deal of work at Mercyhurst over the years. I doubt if board member Owen McCormick was going to rock the boat.

Frank Victor - From another wealthy family who has given loads of cash to Mercyhurst. About 3-4 years ago, Garvey also brought in Mr. Michael Victor (Frank's brother), to be the new Dean of the Mercyhurst Business school.

Gary Renaud and Bruce Raimy - Same situation with Owen McCormick above. Both are Presidents of companies who have landed nice deals with Mercyhurst. The college has sent their companies plenty of business.

Thomas Gamble, PHD - Dr. Gamble is a professor at Mercyhurst, and is now a VP. He is a very close associate of William Garvey. Dr. Gamble also sat on the C-Cubed organization with Garvey.

Monsignor Thomas Snyderwine is another person named as part of the Mercyhurst board of trustees.

Monsignor Snyderwine is the Pastor of St. Lukes parish, which sits adjacent to Mercyhurst college. It was at St. Lukes where Father Michael Barletta had lived for many years.

Father Barletta was another sexual predator and pedofile in the Erie community for many years. "Barts" (like Garvey), destroyed the lives of several young men. Ed Pallatella, who also broke the Garvey story, broke the story on Father Barletta in 2003.

As a Mercyhurst board member, and as someone whose own parrish was touched by the actions of a sexual predator, Thomas Snyderwine more than others should have spoke out against Garvey and demanded the college cut all ties with him.

At least we know now that Jim Barker is no longer being considered for the President's job at Mercyhurst. That was reported in the Times newspaper the other day. Thank God.

I wonder if this had anything to do with the recent story that 6 Erie city public schools failed to meet federal standards.

That would have made it much harder for Mosco to sell Barker as the 'best candidate' for the Mercyhurst job.

Perhaps you should stop blaming the board as a whole and look more closely at the individuals on the board. Mrs. Baldauf is a memeber of the board of directors of the Times Publishing Company--correct me if I am wrong, isnt't that the same company that broke the story of Garvey and did extensive follow-up? Do you think she agreed with the Board of Mercyhurst?
Then there is Mrs. Mosco who is the head of PNC Bank in Erie, where does Mercyhurst College have all of its bank accounts? Who is more of a patsy to Garvy then Mosco?

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
