Nope didnt know that got changed, thanks for the education!!! I will say that Corona and DV havent recruited in the past. Once again thanks for the news. Mar 28, 2012
Corona and DV dont "pull" athletes, they are the ONLY 2 school districts in the entire state that are closed, meaning you have to live in there district to go there. So kids that live in DV district go to dv and the same for corona, they don't steal kids like all the other schools do. They aren't recruiting!Mar 28, 2012
Commonsense: I am sorry that you were a band person that was picked on by "jocks" in high school, but your comment, "Oh yeah, sports don't require as much intelligence so it's easier for the morons who love them to understand them" proves that you don't have common sense. Sports is a section in the paper, that's why you can open up the paper and read about them. You may want to go to the arts or entertainment section and complain there about not having the glee club or concert convered.
I agree that there should be a fee for athletics, I think that some people have a gross overestimate of the actual costs, I believe that someone said millions, of athletics. Facilities do cost mega bucks, but for those that are the band and drama people your facilities also cost mega bucks as well, and band people, you wouldn't have the ability to get that marching band scholarship if you didnt have the opportunity to perform at the football game. Uniforms, money is spent on sports uniforms, but the same for band and glee club uniforms. Coaches, here is the biggest misconception by people in the community, people think that coaches are paid so much money to coach...THIS IS NOT CORRECT!!!! A 2,500 stipend for an assistant coach and 3-5 for a head coach. These people don't understand the HOURS that are put into coaching. It may come out to 10 cents per hour for that job. Sep 19, 2011
I wish we would bring back the burning people alive because that is all this human deserves. May 18, 2011
I agree with you that the people should be trained and skilled if they are going to carry their guns, and with the concealed weapons permit you have to take the course and pay for it to do so. Now this may not seem like much of a deterent, but it is. Those people that are the stereotypical people that do get out of control and use violence are most of the time from the lower income areas. That cost for that class and permit may not seem like a lot for a "normal" person, but it is for those that are of lower socio-economic status. Now you may say that I am stereotyping, this maybe, but I have also been in schools that have a higher socio-economic class and those that have a lower socio-economic class. The lower did have more violent students & parents. The lower socio-economic class people would also do things without carrying what happened to them afterwards. These things all added up equal bad news if you are now allowing them to carry guns all over the place. Apr 15, 2011
So lets let everyone carry a gun everywhere...why am I feel this might be a bad idea. Being violent is not a good thing, now if people get into a fight they wont hit each other with their fist they will shoot each other because they can have a gun all over the place. Lets have guns in bars and sporting events where people do get drunk and over excited about events that are going on around them and then tend to become violent and crazy. This is a terrible move. So now you can bring a gun into a bank? You can bring a gun into a school? Post office? Talk about being the last civilized area in America, Wild West of Arizona. BTW if you think I am so sort of softy liberial, you're wrong. We need to arm the entire board to Mexico and blow everyone away that is crossing over with out permission. Guns are great, but not just in certain buildings. Apr 14, 2011
If I am correct Mesa doesn't have property taxes, right? If so, maybe they should think about bringing that back. Schools get money from the property taxes around them.Jan 6, 2011
I am NOT going to pay the medical bills for someone else. Not enough people paying to the system to cover everyone and everything. That is life and it isn't always going to be nice. If you don't like it then move to Canada ("free" healthcare there) or move back to Mexico. Jan 6, 2011
fire him, bad hire, bad person, how about we also fire some of the administration staff also that has brought a school down from being amazing to what it is now...Jul 24, 2010
So what was actually said? I have to say that the admin at Corona really messed up with this hire. They had 2 first rate choices that were already on campus and that the students loved and supported. Cory Nenaber and Ken Olson. When Mr. Denton and Mrs. Denny left, this school went down hill fast. Jul 20, 2010
