September 29, 2010 California Commcntory The Taj Mahal in the LAUSD by Mark Wyland and Jon Coupal The most recent session of the California Legislature gives new meaning to the clich6 "rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic." It is horribly frustrating to see how the liberal majority chooses to focus on the minor and mundane instead of issues that really matter. Wouldn't it be better to focus on the budget, address pressing infrastructure needs and tackle fraud in our welfare programs rather than banning plastic bags or creating another meaningless commission? Meanwhile, our education system continues to deteriorate rapidly. Over 50 percent of California's minority high school boys are dropping out, only 60 cents of every dollar makes it into the classroom and there is a complete lack of oversight, transparency and accountability. On top of the fact that it consumes half the general fund, shouldn't repairing a broken education system be a top priority of this Legislature? Doing so would not only helP bridge our enormous $19 billion budget gap, but would also allow Californians to get more from their education tax dollars. Unfortunately, the legislative majority continues to turn a blind eye to vast amounts of waste in our education system. The latest, most egregious, misuse of education dollars has taken place, not surprisingly, in the Los Angeles Unified School District. The opulent Robert F. Kennedy Community Schools cluster, which opened last week on the site of the former Ambassador Hotel, cost taxpayers $578 million (over half a billion) to build. That works out to more than $150,000 per student. This "campus," serving students from Kindergarten through 12th grade, is not your typical little red brick school house. It features an exotic futuristic design that has observers wondering if it is actually Star Fleet Academy. Undoubtedly, it will appear in architecture magazines and will probably win all kinds of awards from society's elites (although certainly not from taxpayers). Adding insult to injury, LAUSD has another school which costs another third of a billion dollars. Demonstrating the arrogance that leads to this incredible Reduced Kaaren Terry ,lanet Gastil Carre St..4 ndre Sheo'll StricMand cell 619-417-0481 cell "760-445-1829 cell 619-922-9687 cell 760-604-2226 R.ED. misuse of taxpayers' dollars, the LAUSD was only willing to send one representative to an informational meeting of the Senate Education Committee to answer the many serious questions lawmakers and others had about their outrageous spending. Taxpayers have had enough. And if they were doing their jobs, our elected officials would finally get tough with those who flagrantly abuse their control of taxpayers' funds. We are calling for a grand jury audit of this colossal waste. Taxpayers have a right to know how many well- constructed campuses could have been built with the money spent on just one school that is a monument to the collective egos of LAUSD bureaucrats. A major step toward guaranteeing accountability from school officials is Senate Bill 1473. Introduced by Sen. Mark Wyland and sponsored by the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association, the measure is awaiting the Governor's signature. This legislation would ensure that education bond dollars are being spent as wisely as possible by requiring that school districts observe the federal auditing standards for school construction bond funds. Oversight, auditing and accountability are among the most important components of good government, but surprisingly, these fundamentals are seldom addressed by the Legislature. By having specific requirements by which school construction bond dollars are audited, we would ensure that valuable bond dollars would be spent efficiently on building projects that provide the greatest benefit to both taxpayers and our children in the classroom. These audits will serve as an early warning system that will stop wasteful projects like the LAUSD's Taj Mahal before major funding is committed. And if we applied the same type of auditing structure found in SB 1473 to all of our state programs, we would take a major step toward finding the billions of dollars in savings our state desperately needs. Mark Wyland is a California State Senator representing cities in North San Diego County and South Orange County, and a former school board member. Jon Coupal is president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. by Mike Marland , ONE G ONGOIN' .Tff c-oI4OVEL-REAI: 9RO;CTG!  !: .... __>.

Aracely Abarca qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award by earning an average grade of at least 3.25 on all AP Exams taken, and grades of 3 or higher on four or more of these exams. Five students qualified for the AP Scholar Award by completing three or more AP Exams with grades of 3 or higher. The AP Scholars are Lucky Pettersen, Grace Dyer, Leah Keane, Rowlynda Moretti, and Derek Rousseau. Of this year's award recipients, five are juniors which means these students have at least one more year in which to complete college-level work and possibly earn a higher-level AP Scholar Award. Through more than 30 different college-level courses and exams, AP provides motivated and academically prepared students with the opportunity to earn college credit or advanced placement and stand out in the college admissions process. Each exam is developed by a committee of college and university faculty and AP teachers, ensuring that AP exams are aligned with the same high standards expected by college faculty at some of the nation's leading liberal arts and research institutions. More than 3,600 colleges and universities annually receive AP grades. Over 90 percent of four-year colleges in the United States provide credit and/or placement for qualifying exam grades. Research consistently shows that AP students who score a 3 or higher on AP Exams (based on a scale from 1 to 5, with 5 being the highest) typically experience greater academic success in college and higher graduation rates than students who do not participate in AP. The College Board is a not-for-profit membership organization whose mission is to connect students to college success and opportunity. The Julian News 13 MOI0000J]II HOMES. CABINS. LAND. RENTALS.

Louis Braille, inventor of a It was American author and philosopher Eric Hoffer who made the following sage observation: "Rudeness is the weak man's imitation of strength." If you were to have a perfectly dry mouth, you wouldn't be able to taste a single thing. Researchers conducted an experiment in which they placed salt on a subject's dry tongue, and the subject reported absolutely no taste at all. Once a drop of saliva was added, though, the taste came through clearly. According to the makers of the Stetson, a 10-gallon hat actually holds only about thrSe quarts of liquid. During the third century, Saint Lawrence of Rome, a deacon to Pope Sixtus II, was burned to death during a series of persecutions of priests and deacons. Legend has it that while he was on the fire, he turned to his executioners and said, "This side's done; turn me over and have a bite." It was for this reason that he was named the patron system of reading and writing used by blind and visually impaired people, lost his sight at age 3 as a result of an accident. At age 15 he simplified a method of battlefield communication used by the French military to create his own system. So the years hang fike old clothes, forgotten in the wardrobe of our minds.
