I feel now that Leger lost his seat on LVCS board. It is time to start cleaning house. Dr. Campos is gone now lets correct all his screw ups. I think Mr. Lucero can muster up enough support to rid the school OLD problems. Romero, Lopez, Yara, and the Quintans's would be a good start. West Las Vegas School Board should do the same. Don't let the little fat man Kenny Lujan and Jesus Lopez and wife control what goes on at WLVS. DR. James Abreu is trying to do a good job but he has to fight the Lopez, Lujan interfearance. NEW BLOOD NEW FUTURE:.

Well maybe Quintana should go to West Las Vegas to teach and coach. Super Abreau and board prez. Gold seem to like the type that date, etc., etc. their students. They picked up Morgan Montano after a similar situation while teaching at Robertson. Abreau & Gold run off any decent person in favor of those types.
Abreu and Gold haven't run off anybody decent from West - only the losers. You must be one of the losers they got rid of....

don't forget that there were many people in position to do something about the teacher misconduct (and crimes) and CHOSE TO COVER IT UP! In Lopez' case, it's obvious that he was busy with his own perversion to care about the students being hurt. What about the rest? Who knew? Many. Who did anything? Read all about it.

All the guys on the basketball team, where Jay coached JV, knew that he was a pervert. He would often make us do boring drills so that he could go to the other side where the volleyball players were practicing and he would spend his time hitting on them or oggle them.
Ernie Quintana was the head basketball coach and I saw him on numerous occasions with Jay's wife and they were always flirting. I had her for a computer science class at Memorial Middle School and she often referred to Ernie as her husband.
Everyone in that town knows the truth. Las Vegas is full of in-bred people who never move. Everyone is related to everyone there. Nothing gets done because since they are all related they protect eachother.
I would not be surprised at all if Jay has impregnated students. He preyed on vulnerable girls all the time.
People in Las Vegas should be ashamed. Inbreeding causes retardation.

so, from the content of your letter, we can deduce that you are inbred, right? So glad you chose to get out & go to California.

There's a thread at the way beginning of this forum that said something to the effect that in the early 90s Jay had indeed inpregnated a girl basketball player. He and his family wanted not for this scandal to be brought out into the light so he and his family paid for the girl and her family to relocate out of Vegas. It was done, however the girl came back to play for HU. There could be more, they would just have to come foward to say they fell victim to Jay Quintana. As it stands right now there are numerous teachers who could be perpetrators.

Inbred retards. People who grow up their whole lives hoping to play for Highlands.
LOL! OMG what a dream!

People in Las Vegas travel only as far as Santa Fe and think they have seen the world.

the smart people moved away to get away from the inbreeding and retardation.

Sweetie, not all people in Vegas are retarded or inbred. Even though I have a large family, sisters and brothers none of their children are with their cousins. Many of my siblings have gone on to earn college degrees.
I know right now Vegas is suffering with a couple of "black eyes." You should always defend the home of your youth, turning on Vegas the way you have is like turning on your own parents. Many choose to stay living in Las Vegas like myself. I like that I can see my doctor and dentist downtown and that they know my name. I like how when a family members dies, a fourth of the town comes to your home and brings food and gives comfort. I like when someone from the community loses their home in a fire, the town comes together to help them get back on their feet. I like how our local radio station collects food during the holidays for the less fortunate and the response they get. Vegas is a good town, but just like anywhere else we too have our "bad apples." Just because many Vegas native haven't had extensive travel experience doesn't make them retarded. As for myself, I have no desire to travel anywhere out of the U.S. American's aren't very well recieved in other countries these days. Although I am up on world affairs, I think we need to take care of our own first. There are quite a bit of children in the U.S. that don't get enough to eat or don't have medical insurance or a warm home. I see it in Vegas so I have to take care of my little corner of the world first. If I can feed one child, or give one child a coat I know I'm helping. And it doesn't matter to me if those kids are handicapped or developmentally disabled (retarded is not the word) they need help too. So when you refer to Vegans as in-bred or retarted, stop and think what you're saying. Don't be cruel.

I am a mother of a daughter that had Jay Quintana as a coach. I am so thankful nothing bad happened while he was coaching her. My only comment is that girls now a days are very vulnerable to being with older men. I have seen it happening with my daughter. Older men are always making advances at her. I try as hard as possible to keep her away from being exposed to that but what are you to do if it goes on at school or on basketball trips when all the girls are tired after a game and its dark in a bus with only the coach and bus driver as adults. It is so easy for it to happen. Makes me sick to my stomach now. You think you can trust at least that one person with your child and you really can't. Its been going on for years and years but nothing has been done. Something has to happen from all this and let our school be a safe place for our children. Its ridiculous you cant even trust these people to care for your children. As for Jays wife. She was once in our childrens shoes not knowing better and trusting someone who she probably looked up to. Why blame her? I think you need to let her live her life because she is suffering enough as it is not to mention her children. They are innocent and they should be able to live a normal life without having to hear about all this crazy stuff. This is about Jay and his actions. Not anyone else.

by the way I am a teacher as well and hate the thought of not knowing if your co-worker is doing something bad. Makes you wonder now!

If Jay's victim is to be believed she was repeatedly raped both in and out of school over a $ year period while she was on the golf team coached by LeeEtte. Can you say turned a blind eye?

Jay apparently paid his way out of a previous rape resulting in pregnancy in the early 90's. The Quintana's, father and son, have preyed on young defenseless women for years. State Senator Pete Campos directed former RHS Athletic Director now disgraced former Robertson Principal Richard
Lopez to repeatedly bury the evidence of child sexual abouse and harassment.

It is about so much more than just Jay Quintana. If, as it apparently is becoming, an endemic and systemic failure of the administration to protect both staff and students from sexual assault, harassment and intimidation from telling the truth then Las Vegas should demand a clean break with the past and make a concerted effort to bring in outside inspiration that is untainted by the deviant behavior tolerated by a corrupt and deviant power structure. The fear and intimidation and sexual violence by the Quintana family and the lawlessness overseen and allowed by State Senator Pete Campos must come to an end.

Hello is anybody out there? Does anybody have what it takes to make a stand? Pulling your students out of RHS is not an answer.

I agree with "More than Just..." above. It is time to hold those perpetrators and the cowards who sheltered them accountable. By covering up, they allowed the crimes against children to continue. Finally, finally someone is doing something! I don't know what will happen, if all will be brought to justice, but you can't unring this bell.

Girls, Parents and Relatives of girls and boys who have been molested and left to their psychological spiral downward, now is the time to come forward and give evidence of abuse. Come on people! the window for payback is closing for the years of rape, harassment and perversion that currently blacken the wonderful town of Las Vegas New Mexico.

LVCS problems blew up when they passed over several good candidates for both Principal and Superintendent positions. Completely new individuals with no ties would have been perfect for the school.
However both schools (LVCS and WLV) have issues with teachers behaving inappropriately--
Jay Quintana - LVCS
Richard Lopez - LVCS
Aunna Bradley - LVCS (although I don't know her married name now since she has been married so many times)
Raynee Trujillo - LVCS
Rita Almanza - LVCS
Jose Medina - WLV
Morgan Montano - WLV
and numerous others that I am sure I forgot to include. The problem lies in the cover up. Once something is discovered, it should be dealt with swiftly....maybe it would make other think twice about their thoughts andd actions....

Don't forget Debbie Tripp having a kid with a baseball player at West. And Ralph Garcia behavior needs to be questioned too. Mrs. Trujillo at west left her husband for a way younger previous student. Fabian Trujillo over at RHS flirts shamlessly with the female students. The list is endless.

"Paid" leave? This is really difficult to figure out on paper. Hey, man, let's take out a loan.....This really stinks, and this principal boy needs to go back to school...

Can anyone tell us what is going on at Robertson currently?

How long will the district pay the salary for C.J. Quintana, his wife Lee Ette and Pete Campos' minion Richard Lopez who oversaw the immoral and criminal behavior between teachers and students and allowed it to fester?

Did Superintendent Rick Romero really waive LVCS District's sexual harassment training for the entire football coaching staff so the football camp could start on time? Whoops.

Is the Las Vegas Police Department the most impartial government agency to oversee this mess?

Can continuing to bury your head and turning a blind eye be the only answer? Help!
