Seriously, why would the commisioners even agree to this???? Time for a whole new batch of commissioners–clean house and try to clean up the mess by Ruppert!! No one is worth what he is getting paid for making a mes of things–not even the president!!!

“………..reimbursement of unauthorized expenses.” So was he getting money for everything he’d turn in as an expense without any questions? I guess that’s why he thought the county would pay his personal legal fees, and If Diane was in charge they would have. I think it’s clear that one commissioner is still under his spell.

Just so I understand this correctly we are going to pay Ruppert $115,000.00 to leave then we are going to pay him $55.00 an hour to be a consultant. Nice work commissioners what a joke is right. I bet that was Thier’s idea another kick in the teeth. I hope the commissioners offered Cenzano a position of consultant for a new EMS at $55.00 an hour (no different). I think it’s time to turn the administrator position back into a elected position and have an emergency election for new commissioner before this county receives any more damage. As far as David Benson ordered not to comment whose idea is that and what are they trying to cover up. I think it would be a great time to have the state conduct an audit of Nobles County Administration Office. I am willing to bet they will open up some eyes.

I think some one needs to let WCCO, KSTP, or the Attorney Generals office know about this.
People wonder why we are the laughing stock of the state of minnesota, this is why stupid decisions made by stupid county commissioners.
Wait until this gets out around the state DUMB!!!!!
I can see the head lines now nobles county payes county administrator to stay home and do nothing.
Why are we doing this when he should have been FIRED!!!!!

A good job of reporting – there are many newspapers that would not have made this effort to present the whole story. I wish there was more journalism like this.

Meh, don’t give them too much credit. They fail to give full stories and follow ups on many important issues.

Just one example of the Globes bad reporting and irregular follow ups is the case of Lucia Chilel Perez, a member of Worthington, who was reported missing and it was never brought to the attention of the citizens of Worthington until about 2 weeks later whereas it was reported immediately on Iowa news media. There were lots of information released about that case around the internet that was never reported in the Globe.
Evidently the ongoing soap opera in the government of Nobles County is more important that getting the information about a missing person who may of been helped with fast information and keeping the story fresh in everyone’s mind with followups.
So keeping thumbing it down, you can’t change the fact that The Globe doesn’t deserve much credit in the area of responsible journalism in my opinion.

Well naughtydog you seem to know more than anyone else, so why don’t you shed some light on what you know that no-one else does. Also as far as Nobles County Goverment it seems that any type of Goverment issue always gets more attention, due to it never fails that top Goverment officials usually get away with so called murder and then walk away smelling like a ROSE. The little guy is chopped off at the knees without a chance to explain himself. I guess that’s poltics……
