Sweetwater district sued from Texas

Dude! You are seriously delusional! I'm not the one making accusations... You are. I wrote in caps so you might get the point of what I was saying. Since you didn't, or couldn't (probably the later), I will refrain from engaging in an intellectual duel with an unarmed man. Cya!

Sweetwater district sued from Texas

Well, I read the La Prensa piece, and whatever "I'm so HIGH, I'm Elevated" thought was so damning in it I never could find. It must be in the form of a subliminal message. However, maybe because it's AN OPINION PIECE it doesn't need to have facts in it. Opinions are like as... er... noses, and even La Prensa can opine with the best of them.

"Elevated to a new HIGH," can sling his stuff around in here all he wants. Doesn't change the fact that Blish is suing the District for terminating him. If Susan Luzzaro made up facts he'd be suing the Reader for libel. All the other stuff is just so much chaff.

BTW Mr. Elevated, why not do as I do. Use your real name when you post. If you have nothing to hide, you don't! Kinda reminds me of a crank caller.

Don't forget Pearl said she had "friends" in Mexico who didn't take to kindly to what we did.

Just another disgruntled ex-employee looking for his 15 minutes.

However, some of what is written here makes for good comedy. Trustee launches personal investigation, then doesn't share with the Board, but when it hits a dead end, it becomes an illegal investigation. Somewhere in this he gets demoted, so that had to be a pretty small dead end. I'm so confused.

Or this one, a reporter is a personal friend of Bertha Lopez. Followed by an exchange by BB and a district employee using District resources (email) to call the reporter a "bitch." Yeah, that's gonna play well in court.

One last thing. District sources said that ASB monies were used in the sprucing up of CPMS, “Some of the purchases are general fund, some are ASB funds….In any event, all of the expenditures are legal expenditures.” On the face of it, all seems ok, until you read the California State ASB Manual, and find out that ASB monies are specifically prohibited from being spend on items that are District responsibilities.

Robert Bleisch was demoted for whatever District Staff deemed appropriate. But, if this is all Bleisch has as his case against the District, he's in for a big disappointment

Uh! ... so where are the facts?

"A close friend of mine" says...

"First, let's play a little game."

"Bottom line, most of the defendants are in deep deep crap."

Nope! I don't see any facts there. Hmmm... maybe under this rock. Nope, none there either.

Let me explain something to ya Hoss. Innuendo ain't facts. Neither is hearsay. And lastly, news peeps never have to give up their sources.

Lastly, got any extra of whatever it is yer smoking? Cuz you are seriously high on something.

Sweetwater contractors slapped down

Why does he need to have children in the district to make his suit valid? You toss in a red herring, hence the remainder of your post is invalidated.

Sweetwater contractors slapped down

I believe trying to envoke slapp suit language, while at the same citing political donations as free speech, is way too much of a stretch.

Taking elected officials out to expensive dinners for the explicit purpose to win a contract bid is not the same as contributions to a political campaign.

SLAPP is an acronym for strategic litigation against political participation. There was never a chance in hell that that was applicable in this situation. Bribery is not political participation.

It would have been prudent...

As happy as I am to have a new board, I can only hope that they will do their homework before each meeting and bring themselves up to speed on each item on the agenda, instead of just meeting with the Superintendent and listen to his/her take on the issues.

One of the things the "antagonists" did every month before a school board meeting was to meet at one of our houses, go over the agenda, item by item, and prioritize items by importance and cost (bang for the buck). Some items we thought were sound items. Some we didn't. It was the later items we spoke to at meetings. We didn't do this willy-nilly. We had spend the previous weeks gathering information from administrators, public records requests, and public information. We combined all this information into a cohesive picture and would present this "picture" to the board for their consideration. Alas, four of the board members saw us as doing their job and resented the fact that we were making fools out of them for them not doing theirs'.

The new board is just that... New. I can't expect them to be up to speed on every nuance of every issue to come before them over the next several months. But they better make a VERY SERIOUS effort to be up to speed SOON. Anything else will just look like the same ol', same ol' if they don't.

NO EXCUSES! I could do it. So could Fran, Kathy, Maty, Bertha, and Stewart. We did it for almost four years. If we could do it... so can they.

It would have been prudent...

The reality of our situation is that it became "boring" to the SDUT. Too many delays to hold reader's attention.

It would have been prudent...

Until "the largest public corruption case in the history of San Diego County," Bonney Dumanis is running again for office, don't expect any help from her office.
