Once again, the SAUSD seeks to sugar coat the problem, claiming they have begun to implement some of the changes demanded by state and federal mandates. Here are some of the options they have in order to get some stimulus money to fix these schools: replace the principal, rehire no more than 50 percent of the staff and change the instructional program; close and reopen as a charter school; close and reassign students to other higher-achieving schools in the district; or replace the principal, increase instructional time and make other changes. So what kind of drastic changes will they make.

STORY UPDATED – I previously posted on the smear by Alex Vega and Frank Ibarra on Alfredo Amezcua in Rumores. A little over a week ago, I decided to do a little research into their attack, and what I uncovered is much more sinister than some vicious political attack, but an organized effort to destroy a manâ€™s career and his ability to provide for himself and his family.
One week after the story broke on the smear campaign in Rumores newspaper, the common citizens of Los Amigos, a Latino advocacy group who meets at the Jaugerhaus every Wednesday morning, are seeking a Grand Jury investigation of longtime Santa ana Mayor Miguel Pulido. The want the Grand Jury to focus on the confilict of interest in regards to a recent article in the OC Weekly on Mayor Pulido’s alleged connections to the vending truck industry.
So Lucille Kring has decided to forego either a second consecutive term on the Anaheim City Council or a run for Anaheim Mayor in order to pursue a quixotic run against Lou Correa for State Senate. My question to Lucille is are you feeling lucky, because the odds are against you in so many ways, it’s not even funny. If Curt Pringle was any friend of yours, he would have told you not to do it. That is not very nice of him. What kind of a friend encourages you to be a sacrificial lamb. So let’s break down just how ugly of a loss this is going to be.
The OC Register is reporting that Santa Ana Mayor Miguel Pulido and his allies have fired the opening shot in the 2010 race for Santa Ana Mayor. When Alfredo Amezcua first announced his intentions to challenge the longtime Mayor, most pundits agreed he was the most credible challenger since Mayor Pulido won in 1994. This recent attack is evidence that the Mayor does fear the challenge that Alfredo Amezcua poses.
Last Thursday at Angel’s Stadium, I ran into our esteemed Assemblyman Jose Solorio. I noticed he was collecting signatures to run for his third and final term in the Assembly. Has it been that long already that he is at his final term? WOW, time does fly. So I thought to myself, what happens come 2012 when he is termed out of the Assembly.
