Letter about Barber not true

    In a letter in the Aug. 22 issue, titled “Supervision?,” Sheri Thomas states that our now superintendent supervised a school project of McKinstry in Caldwell.  
    This is not true. A preliminary contract between McKinstry Essention and the Caldwell School District was signed in October 2007, four months after Lonnie Barber left that district to come to the Blaine County School District. Although the Caldwell district had been in discussions with several energy conservation companies, Roger Quarles was the superintendent who finalized any contracts and as such was responsible for all supervision of any work performed by McKinstry for the Caldwell School District.
    The Caldwell/McKinstry project, which included the building of two schools and additional energy conservation work, was conducted between 2008 and 2010, several years after Mr. Barber left the Caldwell district.
    For those who are interested in the facts, please go to and look at the BCSD Fact Checker. We are happy to provide the public with a source of information that is correct, cited and sourced.
