Yet again Mary Weston has done a terrific job at breaking a great news story that was trying to be hidden by FRRPD. Sounds like new FRRPD board members are the fresh leadership voters wanted..Time to get off the board Jan and Loren. Thanks for questioning why the Brown Act was violated and a future article outlining the financials over the gym would be great. We need to know what is happening at FRRPD..The old board was trying to push its final agenda with a secret meeting to fund their own "pet" and projects and push them through without community input.
Oh Patricia.. I don't think that you can sue FRRPD... so why don't you find another government agency to harrass and waste their time. Sue happy people just need to retire and enjoy their non-deserved settlements!

<quoted text>Ok Darling.... If the Soccer People are so into grassing over the whole city of Oroville... if they did not agree with the way that the fields were planted, why didn't they fix that themselves. You people get plenty of fee's to do this. The rude outbursts of the "soccer" people needs to be controlled, they are an ignorant group of low lifes.
Your quote makes me sad to have you in our community. Recreation is what the District is about. Calling people names, pointing fingers at the "Soccer People". Soccer people, baseball, football, basketball, gymnastics. Be proud that this district provides such amazing recreation and try to put your anger somewhere else. Encourage the District to move forward. Don't call people low lifes or ignorant, it really damages your comments. Try being a team player.

Great Editorial

Today's editorial about the old FRRPD board hit the nail right on the head. The old FRRPD broke the law with their illegal meetings in an attempt to fund their pet projects. The voters made it clear they wanted Soudan, Thompson and Dorfman off the board! The rest of the illegal old board includes Jan Hill and Loren Gill. You both should resign now. This community does not want your negativity and spending sprees for your pet projects.
Right On

David Little said it all in today's editorial. Very well written and right on the mark. Violating the Brown Act has consequences, as hopefully, the DA will point out. Good job in uncovering their ulterior motives.

THIS IS TAXPAYER MONEY, PEOPLE! This whole thing is very shady. We are in an unprecendented fiscal crisis. These people have been elected to keep that district solvent. Taking on more debt behind the scenes without giving the general public opportunity to comment is ridiculous. These people are looking out for their own interests and not the interests of the greater community. There should be a recall on the entire board who were involved with this. And John Buck needs to go too....he is obviously unethical. The economy has no wiggle room left for people who are going to mismanage tax payer dollars.
OK so why is it that Bob Sharkey could have a 5 year contract?
Last year under John Buck the FRPRD did not go into the Red....
What mismangement are you talking about, the facts are not being printed here. do your own homework.
Bob Sharkey was indited by the Grand Jury why the hell would we want him in there.
The ppl who need to be recalled are the newly elected board who are not about kids or responsibility. They are about personal agenda.

Mary Weston did not report facts she only writes what she hears, there is no fact checking at the OMR call and ask the editor in Chico.....
The truth is the meeting was legal and the newly non sworn in board members who have an axe to grind are trying to cause problems. In question about the board meeting as I understand it is the fact that the newly elected non sworn in board members apparently did not get a email notification. It is not a requirement of anyone to give them notice as long as proper channels were followed in advertising the meeting which they were. Mr Bucks contract is a personal matter so Public Comment would not be taken, as a matter of fact it is a closed session item. So once again Mary got her facts messed up because she did not do her home work. She has a histoy of these types of errors and she should spend some time getting the facts.....

With Vene, Roger and Tamara gone... hopefully the new board can work on communications and making the district transparent in all of its dealings. John Buck needs to be fired. He proved he's unethical by trying to get a 5 year contract signed behind everyone's back in a closed door secret meeting. Loren also tried to squeeze in his pet project in Berry Creek- where he lives. Those two should be ashamed of themselves and conflict of interest should be looked at. Remind you of the City of Bell?
All personell meetings are closed door..... John Buck is not unethical, why is it Bob Im a crook Sharkey could have a 5 year contract? Have you read the Grand Jury Report on Him and hes the guy making the stink here about his replacement. Does anyone else find this odd?
Why the heck is it that the same old faces keep comming back and creating problems for this town.
There Is alot of crap that stinks going on behind the scenes here and it needs to be made public. Some one needs to ask the DA why Bob was never made to answer for the missing million dollars? some one needs to ask why software that spies was found on all of the FRPRD computers and just who was getting the information. Some one needs to ask why Bob is lying about the actual numbers of the newly aqquired OGSA and put them out to the public. There was a group of ppl that wanted to burn the Carter family in this sale. "BOB" and the pick guy yeah. we know who you are...... You have sour grapes because you didnt get your way and now you want to take a wonderful jewl to the kids of this city and destroy it. Well guys I know alot more about this than you think. Im gona start saring it with folks around town. Including the DA.....
You ppl should be ashamed of your selves.

"Come on Now" get a grip. You sound very ignorant and obviously are emotional listening to the whinings of those at the Gymnastics. The purchase of the Gym was done by the Old FRRPD board. They still have yet to tell the community how they plan to pay for the purchase. The OLD FRRPD violated the BROWN ACT for holding a secret meeting and trying to fund more pet projects. Leave Sharkey, Allen and Jensen out of this. They are trying to do the right thing and save the District from financial ruin.

Marcia Carter and John Buck are trying to scare the community with rumors about the motives of the new board. No, there's no discussion that's ever taken place about replacing the only profitable gym program with a basketball court or-- the latest fabrication-- an indoor soccer program! This is laughable and I hope the community can see that they are trying to divert the community from the real question as to why FRRPD spent $3.5 million on a building that was only worth $2 million. Carter and Buck are showing poor leadership and both need to be fired for being insubordinate.

Jan Hill, Loren Gill and John Buck should resign over their poor management and leadership. By violating the Brown Act, the DA will surely be looking into their ongoing behavior. I am glad the voters saw to it to have Sharkey, Allen and Jensen replace the other 3 members. Enough is enough.

Roger Soudan latest criminal dealings include being sued for insurance fraud...a felony..arraignment is Dec. 16. He has a long criminal history with the court system. Thank goodness he is no longer on FRRPD board. I didn't know about his past. Just proves the District should never have appointed him. Good riddance.

I looked at the website and Sharkey filed some unlawful detainers and red a stop sign. Did I miss something?

Scare Tactics you are sadly misinformed about the worth of the Gynastics Building, I have seen the Apprasils done by honest third party company out of Sacramento that had teh dollar figure at a million dollars more than you saying. I may even still have a copy of this document. As far as paying for the building, if you would look at the current books, you would see that. Of course you and I both Know you dont want that.
I havent heard the stories or scare tactics that you describe here concerning Baskeball Courts. As far as the Carter family goes I wish they would have never sold the facility and instaed gone and operated the Facility under bankruptcy protection until the economy turned around. However done is done and they took a major loss and ended up with almost nothing for 27 years of providing a service to this community, and caring for children. the facility under its current debt structure can pay for itself as well as its staff and operating costs. Yes I know a bit about this bussiness and no i am not related to the carters. But have been very involved with them and there attempt to refinace the center. To bad the economy took a crap or they would have never had to sell.
By the way the award winning child development classes are Marcia Carter and without her the early child development programs would be gone. Thats how much you know about all of this.

You dont have to the building and bussiness pays for itself, all of this was disclosed. anyone that dosent know the Gyms financials by now is just plain stupid. They have been made plenty public. The deal to purchase the facility was public knoledge for over a year. There were countless meeting and public hearings as well. What Rock have you been hiding under? The deal is Public record so are the financial records, Hello.
So is Bob Sharkeys 5 year contract, and the Grand Jury report that some one failed to act on mmmmm.
Oh and lets start with Mr Sharkeys latest rant where he went into the child care facility shouting and yelling and scaring the children. He has no bussiness involved and how the heck the people of Oroville voted for him is beyond me.

Ignorant, Brown act is a Guide not the law, besides it wasnt violated just because the not yet sitting folks from the new board supposedly didnt receive an email. They are not sitting board yet and it is not a brown act violation for them not to get a board packet or agenda. as i understand it the meeting was properly posted. Oh and by the way Bob How many times have you violated the law, unapproved spending, misallocation of funds and on and on. Or how about all the verbal abuse of past employees.... Read the Grand Jury report!....
