So now that we know how the NM feels, do we cancel our subscriptions? How can they call their paper the NEWS Mirror?

Now that we have realized some of our collective power, we'd be foolish to forget it. Anyone who keeps a NM subscription, or buys the paper is basically forgetting how they feel about us as a group.

I for one won't be forgetting.

Although this is an ever expanding list of those who stood by the teachers during this stressful and acrimonious time, I feel some obligation to mention one business which appears to continue to lean towards the district's stance. I questioned Sports Shack to see of it was possible to publish a message of thanks to parents from our school. Nothing more. I was firmly told that this would be "taking a side" and too "political". They told me they would "refuse" to put any statement up for any staff. I then asked how saying thanks to parents could be construed as political and was told they simply "refuse". I couldn't help but ask myself how they could accept the parents' money for supplies and equipment and yet refuse to allow a sincere thanks to the very same people. Maybe we should offer signs of thanks to the businesses listed here ...wonder how many would put them up for us?!

Dr. Jarrett, my chiropractor, posted a sign in his office window and so did Rosa's Beauty Shop. Thank you both and all the other businesses that put up signs.

The Training Zone (martial arts studio and afterschool day care) on Yucaipa Blvd. has been a dedicated supporter since the begining. Thanks Syndee and Andrew!

The Valero station on the corner of Wildwood and California has the sign up.
