Yea, I want to know how a sign hung on the high school fence advertising free breakfast and lunch during the summer because Beaumont's students fall below the poverty line, while on the other side of the campus a zillion dollar stadium and headquarter are getting built. Maybe the families could feed their own kids a poptart if they weren't paying for this stuff?

If you become an involved citizen, it would help you to understand the dynamics of the finances involved to feed the needy and improve our schools at the same time. This information is far more helpful to helping all of the taxpayers and Kudos for being able to do both at the same time. I doubt that depriving our students of the stadium would put any more meals on the table for the needy - check it out and let us know. little k

Having a $12 million stadium/sports complex, and an $8 million new DO aren't necessary cost wise. BUSD misled the public when they pushed hard for Measure Z being passed. Measure Z is partially and/or wholly funding BOTH the sports complex/stadium AND the new DO. Lloyd White dug around and found the truth about Measure Z wording and what it's ACTUALLY being used for. BUSD DO lied. We as taxpayers are paying HIGHER property taxes because Measure Z was worded in such a way so as to guarantee its passage. Does BHS need a new sports complex/stadium? Yes, there is no denying that. However, need it cost $12 million??? NO!!!! I would rather see my tax dollars put to better use feeding the needy versus providing some sissified football player air conditioning while they're practicing. When was the last time a BUSD student went from playing BHS football to playing for a university to playing for a pro team??? I don't mean any other sport. I mean football and only football. Students can't function in school - or in life in general - if their tummies are empty. Look at your property tax bill the next time it comes in. Part of why it is as high as it is is because of BUSD DO - the current Supe, Assist Supe Latham, Hovey, Kakish, all had a hand in that. Enjoy....
