A Letter to Dr. C. Pat Taylor,
President and CEO of

Southwest Baptist University


It is our understanding that SBU President
Dr. C. Pat Taylor
believes that as he was
not SBU president at the time of some of
these events, he should not be asked to deal
with disciplining the SBU staff and faculty.


Upon reflection and discussion we agree.
Therefore, Marie is rewriting her request
to incorporate the two SBU presidents
who were more prominently involved
--

Dr. Jim Sells and
current Congressman of the
7th Missouri District, Roy Blunt.

More details to follow ...
Upcoming posts:
A Letter to Dr. C. Pat Taylor,
President  and CEO of Southwest Baptist University,

now includes
former SBU President Dr. Jim Sells,
and
former SBU President Roy Blunt
(now Congressman of the 7th District of Missouri)

~*~Withdrawn~*~
Hey, we tried!

~~~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~~~
A Letter to Mr. Jim Hill,
Executive Director of the
Missouri Baptist Convention

and
the
Southwest Baptist University Trustees


The Peaceful Heart Resolution

Marie will re-open her offer for a
peaceful resolution to this situation

and extend it until
noon on
Thursday, May 3.


Withdrawn due to hostility from
the SBU administration and associates.

~~~*~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~~~

~*~Withdrawn~*~

Through the "Peaceful Heart Resolution," Marie had
hoped to establish an initial agreement to negotiate
a peaceful and responsible arrangement in good faith.

However, soon after the announcement of this letter was
posted on Monday, April 30, 2001, it became apparent
that certain local factions of the SBU administration and
associates
will not tolerate
talk of a rational, peaceful
negotiation to this situation.

Therefore, Marie has asked that the announcement
of the "
Peaceful Heart Resolution" be withdrawn
for the time being.
  

Instead, Marie is sending a series of signed letters via
certified mail to a variety of officials including:  
the
president of Empire Electric District Company,
the
governing boards of the Missouri Baptist Convention
and the
entire
SBU Board of Trustees
(in time for the
May 7-8 meeting
).

A Letter to Mr. Jim Hill,
Executive Director of the
Missouri Baptist Convention

and
the
Southwest Baptist University Trustees

and others

Marie urges that Mr. Jim Hill and the
Southwest Baptist University Trustees
to
immediately remedy
their lack of diligence
in dealing with the immoral, unethical
and possibly criminal conduct
of SBU officials, faculty, and associates.

In handling these situations,

Marie encourages Mr. Hill to exercise
"
intelligent compassion" and
"
people stewardship" --
the wise and responsible investment
in people and their God-given gifts.

Though Marie acknowledges that dismissal
of certain employees may now be inevitable
in some cases, she advocates for a more
balanced and constructive form of discipline
that involves
"
re-investment in life and people
(even when people fail)
"
rather than the more severe, career-destroying
punitive measures.


However, Marie asks that
she
not be required to continue to carry
the
life-crushing
financial, emotional, psychological, academic,
professional, social, and physical
burden of the consequences of the misconduct
of these
other individuals.

She requests that the
financial compensation and resources
that have
unjustly and violently been denied her
be restored immediately and
that arrangements
be made to rectify other related situations.

~~~*~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~~~

and

Proposal incorporated into later letter.

~~~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Whole Heart Proposal

Marie will re-new her request
for financial compensation,
rectification of her transcripts,
and settlement of her accounts with
Empire District Electric Company
and the NDSL loan program.


This proposal is separate from
any request for the discipline of
employees and associates.

Thursday, May 10, 2001 about 3:00 pm

~~~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~~~
We were planing to post an announcement,
but we still have
conflicting reports and indications
concerning SBU's future intention.
~~~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~~~
Monday, May 14, 2001
~~~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~~~

~~~~~~~~~~~~*~~~~~~~~~~~~
They will, they won't; they do, they don't.

This is Christian leadership and integrity?

We do not yet have any indication that
SBU has taken any responsible initiative
in dealing with this situation.

the
entire
Board of Trustees of
