A few people have asked me recently why on earth the same July School Board meeting is still playing on public access -- over and over and over and over.
And none of the videotaped meetings from August or September have seen the light of day.
Turns out the person who used to videotape the meetings retired this summer. And the person filling in did not know how to convert the videotapes to the format that's needed for TV.
So all those meetings for the past few months have been taped -- they just never got on TV.
The good news: the conversion problem appears to be solved. So this week's board meeting should actually get onto public access.
As for the meetings from August and September -- it sounds as though they'll never make it to the screen.
But at least that July meeting will finally disappear from your living room.
