The School Board
School board members conduct business at their latest meeting.
September 10, 2007
From the introduction, the five school board members were seated in chairs #1-5 left-to-right from the citizens' viewpoint. By clue 6, Karen sat in the chair between those of Nick and East. If Karen were seated in chair 3, then Marie in clue 1 would have to be East--no (clue 5). Karen sat in one of the inside seats but not the center seat. Then either Nick or East sat in chair 3 (6). If Nick had been in chair 3, by clue 1, Marie would have been in the other inside chair next to Nick. Since Nick isn't the member from Glencoe (10), Nick would have proposed buying a new Driver's Ed car (1), with the Glencoe member seated outside of Marie at the table. However, there is no way for clue 7 to work given this arrangement. In clue 6, then, East sat in chair 3, with Nick in the outside chair next to Karen. Since Marie isn't East (5), by clue 1, Marie sat in the other inside chair next to East, with East either the Glencoe member or the one who proposed buying a new Driver's Ed car. If East were the member from Glencoe, the member who proposed buying the new car would have sat outside Marie. By clues 8 and 5, East would have proposed sending the principal to the conference, with Karen being Summerset's board member (5) and Marie Downey. However, there is no way for clue 7 to work given this arrangement. So, by clue 1, East proposed buying a new Driver's Ed car; and the member from Glencoe sat to the outside of Marie. By clue 7, John is East; Lisa is Glencoe's board representative. Since Lisa then isn't Downey (10), by clue 8, Karen proposed sending the principal to the conference, Nick is Downey, and John is the member from Summerset. Lisa proposed hiring a new baseball coach (3). Then Marie represents Brothers Valley on the board (7). By clue 9, Karen is Broome, while Nick is the member from Indian Lake. Karen represents Jefferson Township on the board. Nick proposed buying new band uniforms (9), with Marie proposing to repair the elementary school gymnasium. Marie is Avila and Lisa Carson (2). By clue 4, Lisa sat in chair 1, with Marie in 2, John in 3, Karen in 4, and Nick in 5. In sum, Sundown District school board members sat as follows at their last meeting:

  • 1 -- Lisa Carson, Glencoe, hire baseball coach
  • 2 -- Marie Avila, Brothers Valley, repair elementary school gym
  • 3 -- John East, Summerset, buy new Driver's Ed car
  • 4 -- Karen Broome, Jefferson Township, send principal to conference
  • 5 -- Nick Downey, Indian Lake, buy new band uniforms
