Re: “Fred Wiseman

A fully executed agreement obtained by The Critic by a Freedom of Information Act request said that Wiseman agreed to being placed on paid leave starting in the spring 2013 semester. His pay will be cut in half, but he will continue to receive health insurance benefits and insurance coverage. He will remain on paid leave until the end of the 2013-2014 year, at which time he will retire.

Under the agreement, Wiseman also won’t be further disciplined for allegedly violating the college’s sexual harassment policy.

“The college will not impose any discipline on Professor Wiseman as a result of the Policy 311 complaints filed in the Spring 2012 semester,” the agreement states.

The agreement was signed by Wiseman, JSC President Murphy, Russell Mills of the Faculty Federation for the VSC and VSC Vice President and General Counselor William J. Reedy. It was written as “a resolution of the disciplinary process related to Policy 311 complaints against Professor Wiseman.”

And yet... on the Johnson State College we see this:

Fred Wiseman
Professor
Willey Library & Learning Center
802-635-1340
Frederick.Wiseman@jsc.edu

SO he did not retire, he was on paid administrative leave, and then allowed back on campus of Johnson State College to keep peddling his revisionist "Abenaki" "expertise"? Hmmmmmmm I smell something rotten in Vermont.

Re: “Fred Wiseman

JSC Humanities Professor Fred Wiseman will stop teaching classes at Johnson State College at the end of the fall 2012 semester, according to information released by JSC Dean of Administration Sharron Scott on Friday, Sept. 14. Responding to a Basement Medicine request under Vermont’s Public Records Law for release of documents pertaining to any severance agreement between the college and Wiseman, who has been at the center of a controversy involving allegations of sexual harassment, the College provided a copy of an agreement signed prior to the beginning of the fall semester. Requests for three other documents filed at the same time, including the complete Policy 311 report delivered to President Murphy’s office in May, were denied, citing permitted exemptions under the Public Records Law. An official separation agreement between Wiseman, JSC, the VSC and the VSC Faculty Federation was dated Aug. 1 “as a resolution of the disciplinary process” related to Policy 311 complaints against Professor Wiseman.

Again, Why is this "professor" continuing to claim he is a professor at Johnson State College since late 2012? Is this not yet another distortion, he himself is putting out there, and in fact he is not?: Just like the 4 Alburg Indians in the Civil War were NOT Abenakis, but actually Mohawks from Akwesasne - just like Antoine Phillips Sr is NOT in that tin type he claims to have, but rather it is Antoine Jr. of Essex, Vt in the early 1900's; and so on, and so on, I find this professor lacks the ability to be truthful about who he is, where he comes from, and what he is perpetuating. It is peddling distortions about the Abenakis, based on falsehoods. If this is not "classy" my apologies but to perpetuate something that is absoluting sickening to the majority of legitimate Abenakis living in the States, knowing how Mr. Wiseman has moved around the State of Vt. peddling his revisionist "abenaki" history, well it just puts salt to the old wounds.

He most certainly is not a Johnson State College professor any longer and for him to imply that he still is, is an absolute matter of usual behavior coming from him. I would hold anything he says or implies about anything, with that same grain of salt.

Re: “Former Vermont Photojournalist Releases Earth Day Photo Essay of Ecological Struggles for Justice

Homer weren't no Abenaki at all and neither was or is his daughter April Merrill. Of course, Vermont'er's can't tell the difference between a bonafide Abenaki vs. a wannabiak then or now!

Re: “Abenaki Artifacts to Return to Original Burial Ground

Bernie Mortz, is dead wrong in what he implies in this article. He has not proven any connection to the Abenakis at all, and this is coming from people who know him and his family! Stepped down from the pretender group Koasek, that the late Nancy Millette - Doucet created as a 501c3 group in recent years? Historical? Not. Please, someone, anyone, DONATE some intelligence into this whole affair. "Bones of their ancestors"? Anyone with common sense knows that in comparison to their genealogies, these remains are NOT "their ancestors" at all.

Re: “An Almost-Auction of Abenaki Artifacts Reopens Old Wounds

Those "artifacts" of the Abenaki do not belong to these contemporary FAKE Re-Invented "Abenaki" Groups claiming absurdly that they are "Tribes" now the State of Vermont has naively "recognized" them. No, no, no .... those pieces belong to the Odanak Abenaki Ancestors.

And what is happening on both sides of this dynamic is insulting to those Ancestors and their descendants CONNECTED to Odanak....

Not these State "recognized" Incorporation's claiming to be "Abenakis"
