PAGE 6 • THE INTERMOUNTAIN NEWS • OCTOBER 28, 2009 LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Oldest guy out there Editor: First off, Thanks for the coverage (of the BHS vs. CV alumni football game). No other media made the effort and you have done an excellent job. My team appreciates what you did do and it has meant a lot to each of them. I was #75, Mike McMaster, the oldest guy out there, but I had the greatest amount of fun. Thanks again for the outstanding job! -Mike McMaster It’s your choice, all are worthy Editor: After interviewing the four candidates for the Fall River Joint Unified school district’s School Board, the Fall River Teachers Association’s Political Action Committee has decided that rather than endorse three of the four candidates, it wishes to declare that all of the candidates would be excellent School board Trustees and we will help spread the word about the experience, qualifications and points of view of the candidates in an effort to get out the vote on November 3. We believe that the voters in our communities can look at the information and make their own choices. Both incumbents have been dedicated and hard working as board members. Teri Vigil has served on the school board for 10 years and has lived in McArthur for 22 years. She has been actively involved in negotiations, school trainings, visiting and helping in our schools and currently, she is attending the Continuous School Improvement meetings. Teri is a good listener who sincerely values communication and good relationships with school employees. Teri is always willing to talk with people about the issues in the school district and remains open to the ideas of others. Randy Oller, a retired teacher, has been on the school board for four years. Randy lives in Burney and worked at Burney High School for 30 years. He teaches Spanish for Shasta College. He has remained involved in wrestling and speech activities with students and has tried to use his own experience to represent the teachers’ perspective in board discussions. Randy told the interview committee that he is pleased to have the chance to continue to do things for kids. Janelle Howes is a homemaker, former teacher, and parent who lives in Burney. For years, she has been following School Board meetings through the minutes posted on the FRJUSD website every month. She is informed and intelligent about the issues and has some excellent ideas about ways to address the school district’s challenges. She seems genuinely committed to high quality education for students in the district. She serves the community in various groups including the Intermountain Healthcare Foundation Board, the Session at the Burney Presbyterian Church and the Overview committee of the Raymond Berry Swimming Pool. Iggy Venegas is a graduate of fall River High School and has lived his whole life in the area. He is also a parent, and through his experience as president of the Pit river Health Board, has gained knowledge about working with policies, budgets and organizational issues. He wants to contribute to the community and make a difference by serving on the school board. He told the interview committee that he is all about supporting families and being fair by following policies consistently. He is also interested in strengthening the relationship between the schools and the Pit Rive Tribe. -Ellen Sugg President Fall River Teachers Association Two steps to save freedom Editor: Our federal government is out of control. Most federal representatives completely ignore our Constitution that they took a solemn oath to uphold. The feds are responsible, but the real blame is that we the people have allowed it to happen. And it will continue to get worse unless we stop it. We can start by contacting our Senators and Congressman and demand that they make no changes to our health care. The current administration wants, over time, to take total control of our heath care. Our dollar is no longer backed by gold or silver. It is fiat money made legal tender by the federal government. Furthermore, the unconstitutional Federal Reserve Bank, a private entity not responsible to anyone, determines how much money should be in circulation. We need to make a first true audit of this organization by urging Congress to pass H.R. 1207, the Federal Reserve Transparency Act of 2009. If we can get enough people to contact Congress about these two items, we will be well on the way to reining in our runaway federal government. -Edward Milton Ventresca Canyon Country, Calif.

Early rankings have Bulldogs in top spots The first rankings of the Northern Section came out Sunday with Fall River sitting at the top spot in football and volleyball. In Division V football the Bulldogs (6-2) are ranked and will likely stay there with victories over No. 2 Maxwell (6-3) and fourth ranked Burney. Tulelake (3-4) is currently holding the three seed with Chester (4-4) looming at 5. Expect the Burney Raiders (5-3) to move to the three spot before the playoffs start. In Division IV the Modoc Braves (7-0) and at No. 2 behind the Portola Tigers (8-0). In Division VI volleyball the lady Bulldogs (16-4) are ranked No. 1 and the Burney lady Raiders (14-5) are sitting in the No. 5 spot tied with Butte Valley and Providence. Burney has defeated Butte Valley twice this season but will have a problem overtaking them in the rankings as Butte Valley will like win the Evergreen League title unscathed in league play. In Division V Etna is currently at the No. 6 spot with Hamilton in the top spot.
