The settlement states that Carey and VanBuskirk "correctly identified deficiencies in the District's processes for responding to public record re- quests." According to the settlement, the dis- trict has agreed to pay Carey and Van- Buskirk $1,000 each in the settlement, which was signed by Carey, VanBus- kirk and North Mason Superintendent Dana Rosenbach on Oct. 7.

The motion did not reference the settle- ment agreement. "To further en- courage robust civic deliberation in po- Campbell tential approaches to the future man- agement of the Theler Center and to foster mutual understanding and goodwill, I move we rescind its designa- tion as surplus," Campbell said. The board unani- Rosenbach mously approved the motion. "To me (the sur- plus) was always throwing out a fish- ing line to see what happened," School Board member Art Wightrnan said. "(The surplus) served a good purpose." Wightman said the district got two "bites" on the future management of the Theler Center. He said the Pacific Northwest Salmon Center and the Port of Allyn have both expressed interest. Rosenbach said the district has not received any concrete offers from any agency to potentially buy or manage the center. During the Oct. 16 meeting, Rosen- bach said that placing a property on the district's surplus list by definition means it is not needed for instructional purposes. When the board voted on June 17 to place the center on its surplus list, former Superintendent David Peterson said the center was distracting from the educational mission of the district. Board president Laura Boad said at that meeting that the center had be- come a "burden." The board discussed options for sell- ing or transferring ownership of the center at the June 17 meeting, which was Peterson's last meeting as North Mason superintendent.
