Turns out 'Mr. August' is school superintendent
MANNING, Iowa -- A superintendent who posed as a nearly naked ''Mr. August'' in a charity calendar is rebuffing critics who say it amounts to soft-core porn.
Roger Schmiedeskamp joined other men in appearing in a calendar that will raise money for the Rotary Club.
Schmiedeskamp's image is superimposed on an old schoolhouse room behind a desk. He is shirtless and his legs are bare under the desk.
''A kid is supposed to be safe in the classroom. This does not portray safe,'' parent Kathy Swanson said.
But the school board backs the superintendent.
