I can't count how many times I have almost been hit trying to pull out of my friend Greg's driveway that is on the highway there and as I was admiring the much needed change a man proceeded to pass me]!! AAAAGGGHHHHH! Lani Stuart-Gonzalez Dear Editor, I'd like to thank Mom's Pie House, The Candied Apple, Julian Pie Company, and Dudley's Bakery for donating such delicious baked goods for the Jess Martin Park ribbon- cutting ceremony. Everyone enjoyed them immensely and every last dessert disappeared! What a fantastic turnout! Thanks to all the parents, kids, teachers, Julian Jr. High ClubLive participants (your banner was great), coach Flack and team, representatives from the Chamber and Merchants' Association, citizens of the community, members of the Jess Martin Park Advisory Committee (Dennis, thanks for donating the water), the media including our own Julian News, Miss Julian and her court, the Department of Parks and Rec staff, and our County Supervisor, Dianne Jacob, for making it such a wonderful event. If you haven't already done so, stop by and check out the new improvements. They're great! Thanks again to all who donated and attended! Becky Hatch To The Community, I find myself up early this mornin' thinking, contemplating, and evaluating decisions that I have just made. Being on a school board, any board for that matter; is truly a life lesson. There are no rule books for decision making. There are guidelines for holding meetings, Robert's Rules of Order; there are State and School Bylaws, and we have standardized policies, but when it comes down to brass tacks of how we vote and why we choose to do things, there are no uniform rules. This is where individuality comes into play. Over the past 12 years, I have had to make choices and then give reasons why I made those choices. When I began this board I was told that whether I liked the decision of the collective group or not, I had to stand with the group as a whole, just because it wasn't what I believed was right, didn't give me room to discuss or "go against" the group. Well, for any of you that know me, that statement set the hair up on my neck and a burr under my saddle. The most common thing I have ever been asked is; "why would you do this". "This" being a job with no benefits, no pay, no rewards. Generally speaking, "this" being thankless, exhausting, and as it is this early 4 am morning ..... wrecking havoc with my sleeping! Why on earth would someone willing take this job? I have been yelled at, spit on, sued, hated, and lost friendships over 'this" job. So... what is this issue I now ponder? Do any of the readers even care? I hope so. We, as a board, me as an individual have decided that this local High School needs to go out and try to obtain a bond for our district. So, as I lay in bed I have to ask myself the same question I have asked myself for the past 12 years in each large task placed before me. "Is this fair and is this consistent". I have spent my adult life evaluating what I do by these two things. If I were to ask someone to describe me I may get: a Christian, a mother, a conservative, an old timer of Julian, a wife, a daughter, an auntie, and yes .... a school board member and quite frankly a few .other unspeakable ,words,: But "how" I make decisions in all these things is really what I am about. I try my hardest to live by: "what is fair and what is consistent". I do not believe in more taxation, as a rule. I do not like being pushed into a corner; I do not currently like the government in the state of California. But what I do like, and stand up for is this community and our students. It isn't fair I was taxed by the last bond and the money was squandered away. It isn't fair that our students haven't had a "real" science lab/classroom in almost a decade. It isn't fair that I am taxed for someone else's mistakes. But I do know that if I choose to sit and whine/ cry about it nothing is getting accomplished. Whether you choose to vote in favor of this bond or not, that is your choice. But go out and vote! No one likes to be taxed, but go to the school and ask questions why? Call me and complain, ask me questions, say you disagree, but call me! I can't promise anyone that rve always made the right decisions. But I can promise that I have tried my darnedest to be "fair and consistent" to the needs of the students in this community. And I will say it again ..... The students. That is what the school is about. Not my child, not the star athlete, not the most popular. But ALL the student"s".
