These PVUSD columns tend to be dry as toast, so it's amazing trustee spouse Peter Nichols keeps claiming they're the product of a professional ghost writer. If so, the district isn't getting much bang for its bucks.

Pretty dull, until you read the part about a parcel tax or bond measure. Get your teachers to actually teach (like in Salinas and Sanger) so PVUSD can get out of the gutter before you come asking for money.

The superintendent and assistant sups along with others who went on these excursions have probably a few centuries in PVUSD between them. The fact that they made a little visit and suddenly realize there are other districts where they have worked to overcome ideology in favor of successful practices is really a testament to their collective incompetence.

"We also recognize and value the importance of nurturing one of the most important resources of our district: the language and culture of our diverse student population."

I would like to nurture one of my most important resources - my dwindling bank account. I really don't give a damn about nurturing anyone's native culture or language. Welcome to the United States speak English, provide for your own housing, groceries, health care, school meals, day care, and you will do well and prosper.

The Spanish language does not need to be "nurtured" in our public schools in Watsonville.

Note to Board--Don't waste too much time discussing a parcel tax--The votes "ain't" there.

When is the Sentinel editor going to get with it and stop running these public relations pieces. As dry as the writing is, everyone knows this is plagarized writing. It is actually written by Bruce Woolpert's hired writer, former Sentinel writer Stonebrook, and they try to pass this off as written by these two. Who are they kidding?

Then they have the audacity to propose a parcel tax with the long history of misspending. They make themselves look like a total jokes. Such a tax would be dead on arrival.

This is a dishonest article. The trustees did not write the article their "ghost writing" PR group wrote it. The fact that these trustees take credit for writing the article is dishonest and nothing short of cheating. PS It is a terrible article with nothing to say. How about this: write your own articles and be honest.

If there ever was a public school district that needed to be taken over by the State, turned inside out from the top down, slung over a tree limb and then beaten severely, meet the PVUSD.

And, if the Public ever decides that they finally want to take a close look at this cesspool of “Official” corruption, just pull gently on the convenient “official government arts monopoly” zipper represented by PVPAA and the mello.

This is a call for action!

Good governance requires good gravy

So, we Citizens need every porky drop of "Leadership's" vaunted "Experience" dominating every single decision that is ever made by our State Government.

Folks, every local Senator's Son should have a life time cushy pay check from the State, not just the Former Majority Leader's.

It's the public's responsibility to make sure that all such politicians and cronies continue to be supported in the manner that they have become accustomed.

So, since there's clearly no way around it, I propose to immediately launch Bay Concert Arts'* "Big Government Benefit" fundraising concert series in PVUSD's and the late "Godfather's" own Mello Center.
*BCA: Watsonville's Own and the California Taxpayer's TRUE STATE CHAMPION.

A "product of" the PVUSD.
