During the ground-breaking ceremony for the new high school in Grand Terrace, a couple of the dignitaries proclaimed "today we are seeing democracy in action!"
These gentlemen must have missed a few civics lessons.
Webster's dictionary defines democracy as "government by the people; rule of the majority." The fact is, 124 people called and requested that the school be named "Grand Terrace High School" and only 17 voted for "Ray Abril Jr. High School."
Seems pretty cut-and-dry to me. The majority rules, Grand Terrace High it is!
Perhaps the Colton Joint Unified School District board needs some remedial classes in basic math!
