Murphy targeted for battling Chapin High renovations

May 6, 2011 12:29:00 AM - thestate.com
A group of Lexington-Richland 5 residents is seeking to end school board member Kim Murphy’s challenges that are delaying $45 million in improvements at Chapin High.

Chapin High student body president Maggie Stroud heads a group that has gone to court asking that Murphy be ordered to halt her appeals of a plan to fill in more than 700 feet of a stream to expand the school.

Their challenge contends that Murphy is overstepping her authority as a board member and is seeking to thwart renovations approved by voters in a 2008 referendum, a plan she opposed.

Murphy said the group is trying to intimidate her with a complaint that is “frivolous and an abuse of the legal system.”

A separate court ruling is pending on the conflict over the fate of a stream that school officials say is a ditch but Murphy says is the headwaters of area creeks.
