You have no clue why I left, But I felt it was the best thing for me at that time and I still feel the same way. AND YES I STILL DO CARE ABOUT THE LEAGUE, I LOVED BEING THERE. IF YOU MUST KNOW IT WAS BECAUSE OF JEFF THAT I LEFT AND ALL HIS RULE CHANGES AND STICKING HIS NOSE IN THINGS AND UNDERMINING, IT MADE IT FAR LESS OF A BURDEN ON THE MINOR C DIVISION. HE WANTED TO CONTROL IT AND HE GOT. YES I WAS ANGRY AT DIWGHT, DIDN'T MEAN I DIDN'T LOVE HIM LESS AS A FRIEND. I WAS NOT TRYING TO ATTACK YOU. JUST NOT UNDERSTANDING WHY YOU SO ANGRY AND QUICK TO SAY THE THINGS YOU DID. I'M JUST SOOOOO TIRED OF THE PEOPLE TRYING TO THROW DWIGHT AND OLDER BOARD MEMBERS UNDER THE BUS. WE WORKED VERY HARD, YES THERE WERE SOME BAD ONES. BUT MOST OF US WORKED OUR BUTS OFF DID WE GET THANKS NO, DID WE AS NO. VERY HEART BREAKING TO HEAR ALL THE CRAP THAT SOME PEOPLE FROM THE NEW BOARD ARE SAYING. IT SHOULD HAVE TRANSFERED OVER WITH NO BAD MOUTHING JUST WITH RESPECT AND INSPIRATION TO DO BETTER.
Jody, I would agree. I have never said people did not work their butts off. I was not the one saying people are lazy. I was saying the league was mismanaged finacially. Hell the board has never had a complete financial picture till this season. I think every board has done the best job it was allowed to do. Also I dont think the new board is saying anything about old board members. It is parents and past board members speaking, i.e me and Carrie. Well and some posts sound like Ron but he wont go public.

Let me break down your comment lmll, it sounds like no not sounds like, you are talking and typing without any knowledge about who is on the board or what people do on the board.
First off you state that the board is the same people that have been there year after year and mothing (I think you ment nothing)much has changed.
Well if you knew what you were talking about, and it is obvious that you don't, there are 6 board members that are old board members, that have been on the board for 5 years or more.
5 board members that have been there for 2 years, and 6 to 7 of them that are first timers as board members.
I will agree with you to have people run for the board, but only if you have a back bone and you have thick skin.
Its not what division are you in, it is what division are your kids in, and now I am wondering what the same about you.
If you really knew anything about the league at all, there is a new snack bar management, it is under Aaron, and the snack bar does not stay open late like it use to with the old management, until all the games are done, it is open from 5:00PM to 7:00PM, is money being made for the league, ummm yes, but not as much as before, sales have to be down a couple of hundred dollars a night during the weekdays.
New major director needed? the major director is running the division better then ever before, he has been running it for 2 or 3 years I think, and he is not partial to any team, or manager like some of the directors in the past, and in other divisions, he is there at the games rutting for the kids that are playing, saying good play, nice hit among other things, I see him there every time I am there at the park, and he also goes to other fields as well, beside the major field, he goes by the little league green book, and has answered a lot of questions about rules that I have had, and other people have, he is very knowledgeable about the rules, I see and hear people asking him questions on rules all the time, if you have a question about a rule, and he doesn't know the information on the rule and can not find it, he finds it in the book, or he find out about it and gets back to you that same day before your child's game is over.
You can talk or type all that you want and try to make people think that you know what you are talking about, but you don't, it would be better if you were knowledgeable about things first before posting, and calling someone "Ignorant"
just look in the mirror
What was the theory behind shortening the snack bar hours? That thing used to generate a fair share of revenue that helped pay for new equiptment, field maintenence, insurance and many other expenses the average person doesnt consider. Volunteers worked the snack bar and have for years. What do you offer the parents and players at the 7pm games who often come straight from work and are skipping dinner to see their kid play? And what about tradition. Everyone remembers the snackbar at their baseball field growing up. Its part of the baseball atmosphere. I cant seem to find a single good reason to close something that didnt cost anything to run and serves as the hub of the league.

I didn't know the Snack Bar closed early. Been open everytime my games have ended except once. I would assume they close early though because people have a life and in the past it generates about $20 the last hour. Not profit, Gross. But also the health dept has cracked down, They had to remove the fryer this year so basically you can just microwave stuff now.

The health dept. removed the fryer? Have you seen paperwork to back this up? Doubtful that this is true. Its always been ok to use, for years now.

There was a 2 year extension on the agreement that ended this year. It was not renewed. That is why you dont see fryers at any other leagues at Behringer.
It is not a conspiracy, nobody is hiding paperwork. lol

I love that everyone talking shit is under an anonymous name!! Parent of 3, Grandma, LMLL Granny, and many others...you like to talk a lot of shit but hide behind a fake name. Aaron..not AARRON, ARRON or however else you people have misspelled it, has actually made a PROFIT for the league. You know..MADE SOME MONEY! Got the league out of the negative! Started weeding out some of the MOOCHING MF'ers! I've seen a lot of comments about him being lazy...REALLY? Shall we count the hours volunteered like some have you like to do? Because I'm thinking his behind the scene hours just might add up to a lot more. I agree...SOME board members need to hang their hat up (and if you piss me off enough I'll start naming names)but most actually want LMLL to be a respected league.

Im not the only known greenee fan.
Thanx so much for what you posted!
So much is going on in the league greenlee thinks she knows it all! Cuz her friend is Denise Rios. Both of them are loud as hell and give no thought to the players or parents.

Greenlee you are not liked in the league asnyou think you are. competition is 1 thing..being a bitch is another.

You talk a big game...

Wow, I got a back handed compliment. I'll take it.
Why so much hostility, people are entitled to think or believe what they want. You say no profit, she says a profit. Why dont you ask the treasurer for the state of the finances. It is a 501c, anyone has the right to see the books. I am willing to bet anyone on this board that finances at the end of the season will be better then they were last year. I can state as a fact that when the board started the fiscal 2012 year last aug 1st we were somewhere around neg 14k.

I would bet the league ends with a surplus this year.

Still people taking pot shots anonymously. I can understand why Chingasos did, any moronic statement like that I would not want my name behind either.
The other 2, atleast im willing to say my peace with my name so everyone can see if I am wrong or lying. Speak up, the truth will set you free.

Why is it so hard to get my name right? It's GREENLEE!

I would love to come back at you with some of my own shit talking but, unlike myself, you are hiding behind a fake name! As far as our team...not ashamed that our team is in 2nd place.

Everything you say has an asterisk on it. Can't really give it any credence. When you're going at it with someone who gladly puts their name out there, and you punk out under a fake name, can't take your words seriously. Shut up like a coward, or put your name out there.

High School Alert

Los Angeles, CA

#126 May 13, 2012
Listen everyone, despite the bashing Im likely to receive in here there is something La Mirada parents need to know if you are sending your child to the High School. There is a group of parents and a current middle school principal that have harnessed grant money and PTA funds to provide a Private school education for their own children and charged the rest of the student body fees to take classes after school. They created a 6th grade class for these students when the district was going bankrupt and our students could get enough books to have one to keep at home. 100's of thousands of dollars have been spent on these 30 kids and they are headed to the high school next year as freshman and I know their principal will come with them. You can kiss freshman sports goodbye if this happens, that means cheer also.

They shut me up once, Im not going to let it happen again.

Wow. I read this thread and still cant figure out what any of this has to do with the kids in LMLL. Board Members, yelling and Board members Past or present. Parents yelling at parents. What would our kids think if they read these and saw what there parents/grand parents are writing.
Is this really how we make LA MIRADA BETTER?????
Is this really the way to improve LMLL?????
or any sport for that matter. Many of you have kids in multiple sports.. lets make it simple
PARENT SUPPORT = GREAT KIDS. fighting for your kids rights and not allowing those in power to take away those rights should be done the right way.
Calling out someone does not help our kids. Finding solutions and creating and proving your point to all, does. the more that agree with you the more likely there will be a change.
PERSUASION...CREATES CHANGES...

Congratulations to the Red Sox you guys are a class act! Denise congratulations on showing that board members are out there for the kids! I hope you are proud of yourselves beating the Angels today 31-1 (or what ever the ridiculous score was). CLASS ACT all the way.

I would agree, Congratulations are in order for Denise. She has done a outstanding job as Player Agent, she did a outstanding job covering for the old secretary before she resigned. Her sons team is going to TOC. She is one of the board members that actually does things for the league rather then bitch and moan
when things dont go her way or because her meal ticket is no longer with the league. I still dont care about a 31-1 score that a team mom has nothing to do with. But I would like to know where my yearbook for this year is. I know Denise isnt responsible for that, but who IS??
