( New Ventura County Superintendent of Schools Stan Mantooth.)
What do you think accounts for the different memory about what happened at the interview for the position of Superintendent of Ventura county Schools?
Here are the two positions:
1. Leslie Frank says Board Member ML Peterson asked her about her husband Steve Frank's political activities.
( For some fun go back and read about Operation: Eagle Defense! )
She wrote a letter to The Star on the subject. You can read it by clicking here.
2. ML Peterson said she asked no such questions. She sent a letter to The Star with a transcript of comments made. You can view it by clicking here.
It looks like ML Peterson has the stronger argument here. She didn't ask any questions about politics, but she did make a comment about it. I wasn't there but maybe she was responding to some of the earlier speakers that brought it up.
I have heard mixed reviews over Leslie Frank's leadership but GS, a frequent poster on my blog that supports many Democratic candidates has said very kind things about her professional capabilities. GS, tell us more about what brought you to support her as a professional.
So, what do you think? Is this story over with yet? Did ML Peterson prove herself?
Is this story going to keep on going past this entry?
The above picture has been altered.
If you have been following this blog for sometime you might know that I am a strong defender of The American Bald Eagle.I know what you are thinking...Is the Bald Eagle under attack and does it need to be defended? Well, the sad answer is yes.
The Bald Eagle was threatened with extinction from a variety of factors including DDT until some liberals used the Endangered Species Act of 1973 to further protect it. DDT was banned and the eagles came back. Another successful big government solution. But recently, I kid you not, some so-called conservatives have been arguing to bring DDT back. I thought they were just messing around. But they are deadly serious about it.
I have written about one local blog's attempts at bringing back DDT but they have yet to respond.
Now the same blog is writing about science again. I hope they have seen a movie before they comment on it. I hate when people attack movies they haven't seen. Except Nacho Libre. That was a disaster.

A friend recently asked me for examples of things that the government does well at. I of course mentioned several ( Social Security, Medicare, Head Start, Rural Electrification,) but one I did not mention was being the prime mover in environmental protection. This is not to say it has been flawless, but without government direction, much progress could not be made.
Recently, another local blog has argued that DDT is not dangerous. Of course most people do not agree, and would think it is a waste of time to even argue with DDT supporters. But, if we allow people to attack the fundamentals of science they will not stop there.
So, I am using humor to point out the fact that DDT KILLS BALD EAGLES and doing weekly updates until a retraction is issued.
The image above is a picture of a government agent helping to bring back a species that was once endangered but is now thriving. Just another government success. I am sure Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, and others will be bragging about how well government works soon.
