Ms. Brinkman-

What specific piece of information did I post that was untrue? I know. I knew back in February-March of 2014 when the union tribune and star news first reported this.

Bertha has supported the community and South Bay students for many years. If the court doesn't care why should I. Welcome back Bertha. The law suit referred to is pertaining to 16 people about the former principal of one of Sweetwater's schools. A group of people that stood up against corruption. It is not about Charter Schools. Everyone knows Bertha's son attended aChula Vista Charter School. Know the facts before making statements that are untrue.

The teacher of the year awards are all union backed b.s. There are plenty of educators that work in challenging neighborhoods that have raised test scores and who have had respect from their students and parents over the years. The teachers (especially the ones who suck up to the union) should be the last ones to vote, since they are only in their own classroom and rarely can observe their colleague. Students, the parents, and admin who do walk-throughs should have much more influence on this award.

While the northwest has issues let us not forget the southwestern area. We have tractor trailers, motor homes, homeless living in cars and even 18 wheelers cluttering our streets.

For the life of me, I can not understand all of the 'talking, considering, evaluating - you are the leaders of our fine City - PUT SOME VERBS IN YOUR SENTENCES AND DO SOMETHING.

I can not help but think if I drove a camper and parked it across the streets from the Mayor or Councils homes and left it there, dumping sewage down street gutters something would be done.

To all of those who have been acknowledged for their outstanding efforts, allow me to add my sincerest of THANK YOU's. EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU are making a difference in the lives of this Nations future leaders, never forget that. To many you are more than a 'teacher' - you are inspiration, you are hope, you are a mentor and to some you are the only positive adult role model they have.

As one of community members who worked tirelessly to bring about change in the SUHSD I feel it is important to say 'Ms. Lopez was the ONLY Board member who consistently asked the tough questions and demanded truth in those answers' - EVEN IN THE MIDST OF HER OWN LEGAL ISSUES. She was rebuked and ridiculed by several of her counterparts who saw the communities efforts to restore integrity and transparency as an end to the reign of dysfunction that had plagued SUHSD for years - yet she, alone welcomed the communities demands for change. When you know better, you do better - in my opinion, this is the case with Ms. Lopez.

So she is on the board of a charter school, yet spearheaded personal attacks and lies against someone attempting to start a charter 2 years ago? Guessing Feaster Charter isn't aware of the lawsuit against her. Eventually, they will find out all of the facts.

Southwestern Collage Football. Answer this question? Why is your progarm losing good players to schools like Grossmont,Palomar and Mesa? Could it be because after 3 great years of having outstanding football players,that these players got the word out that going to a D-1 school is out of the question! In the last 3 years how many of these outstanding players have you and your coaching staff helped get into one of the better D-1 programs,the answer is ZERO! Now look at the Mesa, Palomar and Grossmont programs,there is your answer,all it takes is a little research and these players do do research, there's the answer. I say SWC is'nt going to have a winning program for awhile, watch and see, these kids work too hard too be forgotten once there two years are up!! Carberry you and your staff know what I'm saying. You like that feeling you had with the winners the last 3 years not including this year, quit taking all the credit and get these kids in good programs or at least help them, the ones I know that are in good programs did it on there own!!

So he wins his seat by all of two votes--recount still gives him the two vote lead, while the man in charge of the recount is not without issues himself.

Rather than settle in and get to work helping the people he purportedly wishes to represent, he embarks upon a lawsuit (wishing to punish the losing side?).

Would winning the lawsuit have done anything for McCann? Aside from bolstering his sense of entitlement? Not really.

It is very odd that his political advisors couldn't get him to drop the nonsense and just do his job. But this is McCann we are talking about, and not someone who operates along rational lines.

It took three years before the kid's are figureing it out at SWC. This is not the program you want to be in if you're looking to get to the D-1 level. Now if you want to be forgotten after your two years are up,after many broken promises, then come on over, I'm being honest when this is a broken program and it's going to stay that way for awhile, six kids on the team last year transferred either to Grossmont,Palomar and even Mesa,the reason is simple, these kids believe they have what it takes to get into a D-1 program but they are not dumb as some of Southwestern coaches may believe, they see the writing on the wall, go ahead and go to SWC and see what happens after your time is up, the last 3 years these kids made Carberry look good, 4 losses and a ton of wins, three Conference titles and three bowl victorys, cool, yeah,but where are these players today, don't for one second tell yourself they are at D-1 schools, that would be a lie, Carberry is always talking about how his number one thing is to get these young men into a program they will fit them, that is nothing but Bull!!!!. Most of these kids do there own recruiting and thast a damn shame, espeacially when someone is on the payrow to do this, in a school and thats a damn shame espeally after reading all the bull this guy claim he does, hes great a tooting his own horn,

As long as there are copies of Mr. Grossman's book filled with his infamous quotes, I would highly recommend Mr. Grossman be content to watch NFL games and tell stories beginning with, "YOU KNOW WHEN I PLAYED"
