Obviously, what the mayor wants in this position is someone who will "play ball".
The other members of the city council want someone who won't betray the deal-making that goes on behind the scenes. Who better than someone who works for a company that has a big account with the city of Chula Vista--it isn't as if Mr. Miesen would ever act in a manner that would jeopardize that contract. I am sure there isn't a better water carrier out there.
It is apparent that there is a power struggle, and those in power want to stay there--nothing new, I guess. Sure wish those holding public office would actually accomplishing something worthy of their position. Can't say that McCann has--matter of fact, wasn't his proudest boast that he didn't raise taxes--except he voted against the boost in Mello-Roos fees as a member of the Sweetwater Board knowing full well that the others would vote for it--just another Brown Act violation, from someone who must be something of an expert.
Containment is everything, right Mr. Googins? It is starting to look like some of us made a big mistake when we supported Googins over the guy who was from outside the area. And here we thought the local person would have our best interests at heart, when he is firmly in line with the status quo, 'business as usual' bunch. I'm rather surprised he hasn't actually said, "Move along, there's nothing to see here!"

The City of Chula Vista should no longer waste hard earned tax payer's money to move forward on this. GIt goes to show the money they already wasted could have been put towards better use. The Judge's ruling clearly states there is NO VIOLATION of zoning codes. We are all adults, you have the choice to go there or the choice not to go in. Ever since the City of Chula Vista got that bay front development approved it seems like they wish they had purchased the property themselves. They are holding a GRUDGE in my opinion and not thinking straight. The City of Chula Vista just approved of a Casino/Card Room on BAY BLVD less then a block away, so what's the big deal City of Chula Vista?

Nancy Alvarado is receiving a Journalism Award from the Greater San Diego Reading Association for her honest portrayal of teaching on the border.
She will be honored on April 25 at an Awards Brunch at the Handlery Hotel along with teachers and authors from the Greater San Diego community.
It is my fervent hope that Sweetwater is well on the road to recovery, but it is clear there are some real problems to overcome, such as all the accounting problems going back almost 30 years, the multiple real estate fiascos (courtesy of Ed Brand and his army of secret dealmakers), the "political" appointments that should have been based upon actual qualifications--the list goes on and on.
Let's hope that the new board will not tire in their labors as they solve these very real problems.
Let's hope Mr. Stover and the new board work together for the best possible outcomes--for the good of the schools and the students.
And thanks to all the teachers, who held this district together, even as they were under attack from all who were trying to undermine the Greater Good.

Tom was always a shining light wherever he went. Even at the last retirees party we could see he was not doing well, but he got up and performed his duties as MC as he always did. We'll miss you Tom.
Marty Baldwin Says:
I was a Criminal Justice Major at SDSU and a Reserve Police Officer at CVPD when I met Tom. I sought out riding with him on his shifts whenever I could and would laugh at his humor; learn from his skills, and never forget his take on life especially when I became a Police Officer a few years later. I now live in Oregon but was "called" to look up the Star News this morning (which I never have done before) on my computer only to find Tom had passed. His spirit still fills me. He was a wonderful man.

I worked with Tom for 10 years, but he was a friend for life. There are so many things you can say about Tom, and he touched many lives.....and he never ever complained about his ongoing battle-
Torimaru Family Says:
Living next-door to tom and Judy for the past 25 yrs. has always made my family feel safe. He was always finding my girls stats from their sports and clipping them to tape on our front door. Would always show up for games when my girls asked him too. RIP Tom
Pam Weller Says:
Tom embodied the spirit of St.Agnes High School. He was an inspiration for many of us. Rest in peace, Tom, you will be missed!
Georgette Chartier Howko Says:
I am a better human being, for having known him.
I can hear God's voice...Well done good and faithful servant, well done!
