The audio clips below were taken from the audio track from some video footage. It's not real high quality. We hope to have copies of the audio from the State Board of Education soon. That should be higher quality. We will replace the clips below with the higher quality audio once we have it and can audio-stream it. The audio clips below appear in the order they actually occurred. The room where the media interviews occurred was very noisy. The quality of those audio clips are the best we can get them.

We will purchase our own copies and then audio-stream them in their entirety on this page. Check back at this link in about a week or so afterwards to see if they're available. We were not able to find someone to produce a transcript. The SBE does not provide transcripts either. However, after their April 2002 full board meeting, minutes of this March 11 Standards Committee meeting will be available.
Bob Garbe videotaped the entire presentation for his AlphaNova TV program that airs on Cable access 21 in the Columbus, OH area. It will be a couple weeks before it airs. Watch his program schedule for more information. He may also make copies of the video for sale through the American Family Association of Ohio (AFA). Watch this page for updates on that in a few weeks.
The State Board of Education will also make a video tape of the entire panel discussion available through a private company. The cost is not known yet. On March 15, we were told by the SBE's Board Relations office that they tapes would be available in about 2-weeks. Whey they do become available, ordering information will appear this this link:
We have already seen some glaring errors in the reporting on this issue by the secular news media, especially by the Columbus Dispatch and Cleveland Plain Dealer. Please visit our Discerning Media Bias page for information on what kind of errors and misinformation to watch out for. We have also seen some very balanced and fair reporting and want to encourage all members of the press to following those examples.
