The Empire Strikes Back: Freshwater gets a fresh idea

Get it? John Freshwater? Bible? TIME is running out?! Ah well.

He still has his Bible, his determination and um, his job?! And now Wall Watchers, John Freshwater – noted teacher, middle school proselytizer and alleged cross brander – has found a way to fight his fight the 21st century way.

Take a moment to visit, “The Bible on the Desk.” That’s right. Freshwater has a Web site. A cyber home to direct all media members hailing on the bustling metropolis of Mt. Vernon, Ohio and waiting for THE DAY (August 26).

Included in this fun-filled WWW domicile are press releases, media queries and I think, the grounds for a straight-to-DVD release from TBN studios, “Meet the Freshwaters.”


I think the capper is the gratuitous greeting:

On Friday, June 20, 2008, the Mount Vernon School Board passed a resolution of intent to consider the termination of the teaching contract of the 2006-2007 Teacher of the Year, John Freshwater. This is the only official source of information from John Freshwater and his team of legal and spiritual advisors. No other person or group has the authority to speak for or on the behalf of Mr. Freshwater.

The emboldened and italicized text is done by his Webmaster, not mine. You think someone in Ohio is a little terse over the hubbub created by his name, his actions and a certain geographical destination known as the BLOGOSPHERE.

Alas, keep your rod-iron hot, Wall Watchers, and brand the story as you will in your own news sources. This fresh story is far from being put out to pasture (as in cattle). There are more puns to be made at his behest, but I’ll wait for August 26.

Good times.

    And since I am in a charitable mood, special shout out to “Ohio resident” for the heads-up on a hilarious exhibition of PR representation. That Google clip was so “Anti-PR 101.”

    Good post too. Keep that up on the Wall.

    Genius. It even comes with a Twitter account. Nice.

    Thanks for that, Mary. Peace.

    This one is even better….

  4. Central Ohio resident says:

    The announcement on Freshwater’s blog stating that it is the ONLY official source of information was not directed at the blogosphere. It is damage control directed at Freshwater’s poor choice of a spokesman: his friend and infamous local media-whore “Coach” Dave Daubenmire.

    “With the exception of the cross-burning episode. … I believe John Freshwater is teaching the values of the parents in the Mount Vernon school district,” Daubenmire told The Columbus Dispatch for a story published Friday.”

    So even his friend and spokesman admits that the cross-burning happened although Freshwater now denies it. If that wasn’t bad enough, Daubenmire went on Geraldo Live to defend Freshwater by claiming that there was a conspiracy to ruin Freshwater’s name. Daubenmire posts his weekly “sermon” on News with which is community of conspiracy theorists. Google “Daubenmire Geraldo Live” and you can see the videoclip of Coach badly fumbling the ball.

    With friends like this, Freshwater’s lawyer now has an even more difficult job of defending him.
