I don't know what everyone's talking about. Our team didn't play dirty. It is perfectly acceptable for a runner to kick a first baseman or a first baseman to elbow a runner. And a catcher is completely within his right to let the umpire know if he doesn't like how he's calling balls and strikes. That's just SVLL baseball baby!

"Does it have anything to do with jobs being given to friends and relatives when those individuals did not go through channels and were not trained or qualified?"

Sosocal you are so so right. I am hoping Dr. Janney takes care of this very, very soon and rolls some heads. Time is ticking!

So this team isn't from 1 town? How is a multi town team allowed to compete in the LLWS? Seems very unfair to the true town teams.

There is great joy in seeing a strong, united team effort, and that joy is compounded when we see kids doing well.

It demonstrates that our community works together--and that is one of the best lessons that can be learned.

For all of us, not just the kids on the team, their coaches and their families--great things can happen!

Wouldn't it be great if Ms. Gonzalez really responded to the needs of District 2 constituents? It does look like we might actually have representation this time--what a switch!! Here's to the dawn of a new era, and may Education finally be the winner!

GREAT THOUGHT OROVOKING STORY MR. DAVALOS - with so much negative being seen daily regarding young persons headed 'down the wrong road' it is important to celebrate the positives. Hats off to the Coach and parents for supporting these young men. These players have formed friendships that will last throughout their lives - all one has to do is observe the body language of these players - they are SO ENJOYING THE EXPERIENCE, and rightfully so""""

Such a poignant story about a young man who was called away far too soon. I have no doubt that the fine young man these parents raised did much to serve as a role model all young males should aspire to be. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. As the song sings 'GONE TOO SOON'!!!!!!!!!

Welcome Ms. Gonzalez:

The community has LONGED for a representative who championed our issues, hopefully you are that Board member. Unfortunately, recent interactions with your counterparts and successor were less than positive. We are in need of being served vs. used.

* just my opinion

As a parent and a tax payer. I am concerned about anything that effects our unique community; we have needs that have special circumstances. One being, English learners in our public schools.I beleive that the public needs to take some time to learn and to stay informed on what's going on when it pertains to tax dollars and the community at large.The South Bay Community Bilingual Task Force was needed so as to maintain both the parents and the community informed.There is a problem when one side is working continously to improve the circumstances, and the other side is oblivious to the fact that problems do exsist.I am an English learner myself; I was educated before prop. 13 came into being.When teachers and administrators didn't need to fight tooth and nail for funds.I am deeply saddened to see that the students are not put in the front burner any more. They are put in the back burner, for later. When is it going to be the right time to get equal treatment? When are English learners going to have an equal opportunity for learning? Let me be clear, that "We Do Have Funds".....But how are they being distributed and used? This is what the parents and the overall community need to question.

Before administrators decimated the English Language Development program, students who went through it scored the highest of any students in the district in state testing. Recently, ELD has been more of an after-thought and because of funding cuts, students are pushed through the program, classes have been cut and different levels combined. Administrators do not listen to the very people who are in the front lines, the teachers.

Now, there is more funding for English Language Learners. Let's hope the money goes to the students where it belongs and not to an already top-heavy administration.

Mr. Tarantino, we realize you are new to the board and perhaps that is why you have no knowledge of the task force. We have worked directly with Ramon Leyba for years. That is what Mrs. Thompson likely means when she stated that district officials have ignored calls for an improved system. More recently, Roman Del Rosario from the Curriculum department has lent a more attentive ear to the task force's concerns.
