Re: Grand Terrace High School
Residents of Grand Terrace have every right to be angry with Colton Joint Unified School District members! Quite frankly, they should look into a recall of all the members who did this.
Also, I would suggest the families going into neighboring districts of Rialto, San Bernardino and Redlands to have residents there sign the petitions of outrage as well. We all should be angry with this blatant disregard of the people's will!
This is nothing personal against Mr. Abril, but he didn't even come in second. The football field, library or gym should be named after him. If he is truly humble, as he said in his speech at the ground-breaking ceremony, he and his family should step back from this disgrace and remove his name from the school.
County Superintendent Gary Thomas should be contacted, some local college professors, this sort of stuff is right up their civil rights- and freedom-loving alleys, and maybe even the ACLU.
I know I stand behind my Grand Terrace neighbors; this is an embarrassing shame for Colton, which seems to not be able to escape bad publicity.
