Cal State East Bay development blocked

Here’s our story on a judge’s ruling regarding a large parking structure and new dorms planned at the Hayward campus. Basically, the judge agreed that CSU didn’t do enough to mitigate the effects of more cars and residents. City Attorney Michael Lawson said the university planned to ask the state for money to help the city handle the extra load, but would have gone ahead with the projects whether they got the funds or not, putting the burden on the city.

The university plans to double its student body in the next 20 years or so.

You can find more information about the projects on the CSUEB website. The parking lot and dorm reports are under the subheading “Cal State East Bay Hayward Campus Master Plan Draft Environmental Impact Report Volume II

To view the case, go to Alameda County’s DomainWeb site and enter case number RG09480852.

    What a pleasure to see the City of Hayward standing up to the State of California. The State is not conforming to the vision of the city. Too many cars, no provision for infrastructure. This is the sort of growth prevention that will keep Hayward where it is today. The assembled masses of Haywardians should gather together in Chataqua and enjoin a call to the state to cease their hurtful operations and talk and talk and talk. Besides the schools in Hayward are unlikely to shunt undergraduates to the State System given the current scores of the school board. Prester John, perhaps you can lead us to salvation? What say the masses

  • John W. Kyle

    Moore,

    Salvation is an individual decision.

    I fought pretty hard to save the 238 Bypass….. but the CATS of HAPA won out. Now with the predicted loss of auto dealers and the supply of sales tax money, there is no way in hell that the City can afford to aid CSUEB.

    While you were personally involved in HUSD’s k-6 division, ( OR just A GLEAM IN YOUR DADDY’S EYE.) the campus on the hill was created upon the promise that there would be a freeway access to the Site. The 238 route was truncated and then lost altoether as result of meddeling by that whiz kid….I THINK but am not sure that Shermasn Lewis, still lives in old highlands area, an old house painted in hideous blue….look him up, fol;ow his advice… he has all the answers!

    The old quarry located a hunbdred yards east of Carlos Bee is fairly small site for the 1,000 units of housing proposed by that gent. 1,000 units for low income folk who would have a small convenience store within that complex….. but parking for just 300 autos.

    So there is the ANOTHER Sherman Lewis desire to be contended with… it will add a few walkers and a lot of Hardy bike riders, the lack of which will see re-creation of GENEVA TOWERS….9 OPPOSITE THE COW PALACE) WHERE THE ELEVATORS BECAME A TOY FOR THE MYRIOAD OF UNSUPERVISED KIDS…. WHEN THOSE TOYS WERE OUT OF ORDER….. USUALLY BETWEEN SATURDAY NIGHT AND THE MORNING OF THE FOLLOWIN FRIDAY,…. WELL,.. FOLKS JUST “AIR MAILED THEIR GARBAGE” THE TOP FLOOR GARGAGE CAME DOWN AT AN INCREDIVBLE VELOCITY…… NICE NEIGHBORHOOD.

    csueb OUGHT EXPAND OR CREATE A NEW CAMPUS IN OAKLAND, WHEN THE OAKLAND COLISEUM LOSES THE RAIDERS AND THE a’S THAT SITE WITH A BRIDGE FROM THE BART STATION, WOULD BE INFINITELY SUPERIOR TO AN EXPANSION AT HAYWARD. eASY ACCESS EQUATES TO EASIER CLASS SCHEDULING FOR STUDENTS WHO WORK….. GET IT? bESIDES TOO FEW FROM husd KNOCK ON THE DOORS OF OUR HILLSIDE UNIVERSITY!

    NOW, IS THERE AMNOTHER TOPIC?

    Do not complain to me about CSUEB’s problem…. go to Professor Lewis’s secretary a Ms.Helen Search-Forit, whose speciic address is unknown to me!

    Good luck !

    Oh my God…is there nothing that John Kyle doesn’t take credit for in this town?

  • John W. Kyle

    bITTER ROOT bOOTH

    I DO NOT TAKE CREDIT FOR LOSS OF 238 BYPASS.

    I DO NOT TAKE CREDIT FOR THAT MAN’S DISAPPOINTMENT AT THE PERSONNEL COMMISSION WHEN HE MADE AN APPEAL. HE STARTED A RECALL AGAINST HIS WIFE’S COUSIN WHO SAT ON THE BOARD OF TRUSTEE’S AND WHO WAS THE ONLY ONE OF SEVERAL THAT HE HAD ASKED, WHO ACTED AS THE MAN’S ADVOCATE BEFORE THE PERSONNELL COMMISSION.

    ON HIS DAILY WALKS HE WAS CONSISTENT IN HIS ROUTE WHEN, AS HE NEARED lONGWOOD SCHOOL, HE WOULD ‘DROP IN’ ON AN ALMOST DAILT BASIS ‘TO ADVISE’ THE PRINCIPAL ON HOW TO PERFORM HIS JOB.

    AT A PUBLIC MEETING, HELD AT LONGWOOD SCHOOL, NEAR THE MOMENT WHEN THE HWD AIRPORT NOISE ORDINANCE WAS FINALLY NEAR ADOPTION,DURING A NEIGHBORHOOD MEETING (held at Longwood School) ON THE SUBJECT OF AIRCRAFT NOISE HE ROSE TO HIS FEET TO STATE TO THE HIGHLY qualified, PROFESSIONAL NOISE CONSULTANT, WHO HAD DONE MUCH TO BRING THAT ITEM TO FRUITION,T O STATE, QUITE LOUDLY, “YOU ARE A GOD DAMNED LIAR”…. AS AN OPENING REMARK TO HIS EMBARASSING DISCOURSE.

    IT IS HARD TO IMAGINE THAT THE MAN WAS ONCE BEEN A SCHOOL PRINCIPAL. HE TAUGHT AT HUSD,6TH GRADE LEVEL, AT MOMENT OF RETIREMENT. DEFEND HIM IF YOU WILL….. BUT YOUR OWN UNWARRANTED,ORAL/WRITTEN ASSAULT UPON HUSD CANDIDATES THAT WON DESPITE YOUR BITTER DISAPPROVAL….. SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT YOU AND THE TWISTS THAT YOU PUT UPON THE EFFORTS OF OTHERS.

    I DO.QUITE PROUDLY, TAKE CREDIT FOR DEFEATING JACK’S EFFORT AT RECALL OF THREE (3) TRUSTEES IN 1994. HIS WIFE EBDURES HIS PRESENCE IN HER LIFE,BUT I DO NOT ADMIRE HIM AS YOU DO. BUT THEN, YOU COLLUDED WITH O’BAMA NEW AGE. GO AHEAD BE PROUD OF THAT TOO, AS ONLY YOU COULD DO!

    hAVE YOU RE-OPENED YOUR LAW BOOKS TO DETERMIONE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND LICENSE?

    WHAT? YOU LOST THEM? WELL, TRY MERRIAM WEBSTER’S
    COLLEGIASTE DICTIONARY… IT IS NOT TO LATE TO LEARN, EVEN IN YOUR CASE!

    yOU ARE AN UNHAPPY, BITTER, OLD WOMAN! I AM TRULY SORRTY THAT THE COMMUNITY HAS NOT RECOGNIZED YOUR GENIUS AND PLACE YOU UPON SOME SORT OF OPEN AIR PEDESTAL, VISIBLE TO PASSING TRAFFIC.

  • http://None Kathi Booth

    Mr. Kyle,
    Once again you show your stupidity. I never sat on the personnel commission for HUSD nor did any of my relatives. I did no act on anyone’s behalf at any hearing before any personnel commission. My service on a personnel commission was as chairwoman of the commission for the City of Hayward…If you knew the rules governing personnel commissions you would know that no member of the commission could act on the behalf of a complainant. You only show how ignorrant you truly are. This is the second time you have insinuated that I did. Again you don’t know what you are talking about…and for that matter neither do I, you fool.

    My law books are not any of your concern. The last time I checked, there is nothing in any law that says that I must answer your ridiculous questions. I know the difference between a human being and what you are and that is enough for me.

    What the hell are you talking about regarding my assaults against people who ran for the school board. If you mean Mr. Armas, guess what he and I have talked and he holds no grudge against my feelings, did he ask you to be his standard carrier????? With respect to Mr. McGee and Ms. Brunner, I whole heartedly supported them.

    I care not what your beef is with John G. Get your facts straight before you start accusing me of anything. You old fool.

    I am neither old, unhappy or bitter…except in the case of you and your garbage remarks. I have a wondrful life, filled with people who love and respect me and accept me for all my bumps and warts.. As long as my fingers work I will continue to point out where I believe mistakes regarding HUSD have been made…It is my right as a citizen.

    You never were part of the Personnel Commission? But you flat out stated in one of your contribuions to the blog that you CONTRIBUTED EIGHT years service to HUSD.fURTHERMORE,YOU STATED YOU HAD BEEN THE ‘PRESEIDENT’ FOR FOUR.
    \
    GO BACK, READ WHAT YOU WROTE AND EXPLAIN WHY I AM IN ERROR. IF YOU CAN! tHOSE FILES ARE NOT IN THE ARCHIVES YET SINCE YOU ONLY BEGAN YOUR EFFORT AT CONTRIBUTION IN AUGUST OF THIS YEAR.

    iN TYHE NOT TOO DISTANT FUTURE, hAYWORD bLOG WILL DISAPPEAR! kURHI HAS BEEN ABSENT TOO OFTEN FOR THAT REPRESENTATIVE NUMBER OF DAYS TO BE CONSUIDERED ACCRUED TIME.

    I AM CENTERING EFFORT ON ANOTHER PROJECT AND NO LONGER HAVE TIME FOR THE MINDLESSNESS IN THE BLOG!

    i SUGGEST THAT YOU FIND SOME WAY TO CONTRIBUTE EFFORT TO SOLUTION OF THE MYRIAD PROBLEMS FACING husd. lIKE LISTENING OR READING WITH AN OPEN MIND FOR STARTERS!

    IF YOU FAIL TO THINK AND THEN SUGGEST ANYTHING PROACTIVE,THEN HELP BY REMAINING MUTE!

  • http://None Kathi Booth

    My blog stated that I served 8 years on the City of Hayward’s Personnel Commission and that is what I said in my posting when you accused me of not being involved in the city or doing anything constructive with my time.
    My time with HUSD was as a special education advocate. You need to be sure that what you think you read is actually what you read. Furthermore, Mr. Kyle, the fact is that NO member of a personnel commission, school district or otherwise can advocate for an employee who is in a dispute with the employer. Why don’t you get your facts straight.
    I am so glad that you are finding something else to occupy your time. For however long the HayWord exists it will be a pleasure not to have to read your garbage anymore.
    You are the person who needs to remain mute Mr. Kyle, unless you have your facts right you cause only misery for those who see your postings. You pass out misinformation, vile comments, and make accusations that are unfounded.
    Trust me Mr. Kyle, I know of what I speak when it comes to my own history.
    Good riddence to you!!!!!

  • http://None Kathi Booth

    Mr. Kyle,
    You only show just how ignorant you are by your claims regarding a personnel commission. Since I was/am an advocate for special education, I could never be a member of the personnel commission for HUSD. In my role as an advocate, I often help to settle disputes between parents/students and para-educators and teachers regarding services for special education.

    As an advocate, no one could sit on the personnel commission and participate in a hearing that involved parties that are in dispute. You are such a bag of wind…someone who cannot rise above his desire to discredit me enough to investigate what you speak of. Once again Mr. Kyle you have just proven how simple minded you are.
    Might I recommend that you take some courses to help you understand how governmental institutions work before you make such outlandish claims and accusations in the future. It would serve you well.

  • Lucy’s Mom

    Mr. Kyle,

    Have a wonderful life, you will not be missed on this blog.

  • Michael Moore

    All, do any of you really believe that Prester John is gone?

  • John W. Kyle

    To all:

    If you seek solutions to a major problem at HUSD and if you also attend a Cristian Church within the District, I suggest that you seek out your pastor and ask to see and read the letter dated November 5, 2010 in which was suggested a path that would aid HUSD. It was directed to the Pastors, Deacons and Congregants of 19 separate churches of varying Christian Faith as they were listed in the Yellow pages. If your particular pastor is unaware, it may be that I missed the listing or thought that the probability of reaching large numbers was slim.

    I made the ‘large number’ estimate based on my guesstimated size of the congregation’s facility for services and the number of services occurring on a Sunday. ( There is a limit to my pocket book size.)

    I would be glad to mail to another Chrch which I missed if you identify that church by letter to me at my home address as seen in the phone book.The envelope is fairly heavy, and thus, due to involved expense, only one copy will be mailed to each church which presently is not in possession of the material.

    Sorry, I will not accept requests made through the blog. All of that which I mail on your behalf will be personally delivered to the Church address you share with me.

    I am not a miracle worker nor do I see any in or among the many who express interest in aiding the students of HUSD. As I see it, even those congregants among the Catholic Churches having an associated parochial school are to be called upon to assist HUSD.

    Although I do not see near future solution to the public school problem as an RC obligation, except to encourage parents whose children attend public schools, to become active at HUSD.

    There is a situation developed by The Jesuit order of priests whose lives are dedicated almost soley to education; those truly interested in public schools mighr emulate that project, initiated in 1994 and in 16 years since, has spread to 25 low income communities across the US.

    If you choose to visit the ‘Cristo Rey’ website, the first thing you ought do is to scrool down to the near end of the center column, adjacent to the photo of the initial priest who pushed the idea forward. There is a ‘CBS’ 60 minute report which appeared in the 6th or 7th year of this project. The website is:

    http://www.cristorey.net/ See the CBS Program before you go further into the website. Watch the entire CBS item then after you do that, try to convince me that you are dry eyed after watching the little girl make a phone call to her mother.

    I can not help but think youngsters such as she abound in HUSD service area.

  • http://None Kathi Booth

    Mr. Moore,
    Guess you were right.

  • Michael Moore

    Prester John are you also soliciting funds to support Priests who are victims of anti child abuse reports? Are you raising money to support your local diocese? Do you want to see more priests outreaching into our neighborhoods? Are you also organizing a town meeting to help bring more Papal support in to our schools so that they can abuse more children than the Church does?

  • Michael Moore

    Prester John, did you gather the evidence that resulted in Jeanne d’Arc’s martyrdom? How about the conviction of Galileo? Were you in Gregor Mendel’s lab when he figured out genetics? Were you responsible for the counting of the coins given to Judas?

  • John W. Kyle

    Moore,

    You are out of line and you know it! You have a good mind and you know that too. The question is: Do you know it’s proper use ?

    Have you checked with your minister to determine the content of the Nov. 5th letter directed to 19 Churches in HAYWARD? iT REVOLOVED AROUND husd AND THE NEED FOR THOSE CONCERNED WITH MATTERS OF CONSCIENCE, IN RECOGNIION OF DUTY TO ALL STUDENTS WITH CONFINES OF
    huswd BOUNDARIES.

    Make yourself aware of the fact that it was not just Priests involved with child molestation but unfortubately there were considerable numbers of Ministers and a few Rabbis involoved also.

    ‘Good’ King Henry used the ‘stake’ too. Or do you conciously choose to ignore that opportunity to pillory
    any but R.C Priests?

    Call or visit your minister today!

    Do not take encouragement from Booth. She is a vexatious person opposed to any thought or suggestion for improvement of HUSD’s condition, which emanates from any source except her own mind.

    Please contact your Minister. Then after consultation with him/her and a read of that which I offered, as a means of aiding HUSD, that you debate wuth the minister any thought to which you object and say as much on the blog, if you dare !

    Other wise let the written missive run it’s course and if made public before the Board of Trustees, as an agenda item,!
    You might, just then, find peace of mind. Especially if you offer a better course of action.

  • http://None Kathi Booth

    Mr. Kyle,
    Once again you assume with no facts. Who are you to tell me to meet with my minister???????? Furthermore, anything you propose is of no interest to me pesonally. Should others find it interesting and informative then more power to them.
    I would not use anything you prepared for a fish wrapper…remember I have seen all of your diatribes for many years and I find them boring, designed to make you look like the savior and self serving.

    Why do you give us hope that you will be finished with the blog and then dash them with another of your repetitive postings. Do you not think that all of us have seen your references to the letter to the churches? Enough already.

    Prester John, are abandoning an answer and no responding. That would be a problem and a non-reply worth getting.

    Or are you still working hard with the diocese to keep enough money in the Roman Church coffers to pay off the abused by the protected priests. Your Austrian Pope will burn a long time for his Hitler Jugend time and his support for pederasty.

    MOORE;

    A FEW YEARS BACK. A SUCCESSFUL JEWISH MERCHANT IN THE CENTER OF OUR UNITED STATES, TOOK TIME AWAY FROM HIS WORK TO UNDERTAKE A STUDY OF PEDOPHELIA.hE DID THIS AT THE DICTATES OF HIS CONSCIENCE.

    HIS RESEARCH TOOK HIM INTO A STUDY OF THE VARIOUS FAITH BASED ACTIVITIES IN THE UNITED STATES. HE WAS MADE CURIOUS THE ‘FACT’ THAT THE PRESS APPEARED TO HAVE ASSUMED THAT ONLY R C PRIESTS WERE GUILTY OF PEDOPHILIA !

    BE ADVISED THAT, AS THE RESULT OF THAT JEWISH BUSINESS MAN’S CURIOSITY, THE R.C.CHURCH IS NOT ALONE IN DEALING WITH THE PROBLEM. IN FACT, HE WAS ALARMED AT HOW EXTENSIVE WAS THAT PROBLEM WITHIN THE RANKS OF THOSE INVOLVED WITH PROTESTANT AS WELL AS JEWISH FAITHS.

    HE WENT ON,IN HIS PAID, PUBLISHED REPORT, APPARENTLY PUBLISHED WITH HIS OWN NAME AND BUSINESS IDENTITY, IN A TOWN OF HIS OWN RESIDENCE AND LOCATION OF HIS BUSINEES, TO DEFEND R.C. CHURCH FOR THE EXTENT OF IT’S EDUCATIOMNAL SYSTEM across the United States, and went on to advise Catholics to hold up their heads and reflect upon their accomplishments in their educational efforts from K-12 through the many Colleges and Universities across the Country.

    We are it is true, remorseful over the fall of those who erred. Many faithful priests felt great discomfort experienced in the scandal. Be reminded however that the scandal is not limited to RC Priesthood as that Jewish Gentlemasn demonstarted. That cost of those many lawsuits has, to great extent, been seen as a burden placed upon the Parochial school system which by the way has reduced the expense of education to the general populace.

    As to your attack upon the Pope. You make a statement for which you are in serious error. Silent leges enim inter arma. Or, “Laws don’t count in wartime!”

    In your ignorance, you dare to make reference to “Hitler Jugend Time” in connnection with the Pope.

    I served in 3rd Armored Division at a moment in time when I was a bit older than the average Draftee. How or why of the age difference is not germane to that which I now lay upon your conscience.If indeed you posess one.

    One draftee from the Oakland Area was a German lad who had emigrated from Germany to Oakland, He too was part of that section of very young boys pressed into the wehrmacht near the end of WW II. Fred deserted but had to hide for the simple reason that there were fanatics searching through the remains of ‘das Reich’ searching for deserters who when caught were executed on the spot. His story did not end with the migration to the US. He was drafted and assigned to a platoon within the company in which I served. He took a very hard time from some sargents who, as an alternative to working in coal mines of eastern Ky. Or West Virginia. Eventually, to the credit of commanding officer, he was transferred from our tank battaluion to an artillary unit in the same Division were I often saw him serving as a useful translator when, beteen the years (1955-57) Division negotiators and upset local farmers who thought tank tracks in their vegetable fields ought be recompensed. He had made translatinhg skills available to the division when it was moved to western Germany where it became simply “Elvis Presley’s ‘old outfit’ ” after our release and return home.

    Fred aided my son-in-law’s entry into the field of iron casting forms (MOLDS ?) creation. A good US Citizen.

    The Pope was one of those brought into the wehrmacht as a teen age boy…..no volunteer just ‘come along and write to Mother from the traing camp’, such as they may have existed in early 1945. He was assigned to an anti aircraft battery at age 16 or 17…..that was it until the end.
    (Come on MOORE use the digits on your hand to do the MATH USING 1945 AS THE BASE LINE WHEN COUNTING BACK FROM THE POPE’S PRESENT AGE. So, who in hell are you to pass judgement? Ah, I got it.. ‘pederasty’…. your familiarity with the word leads to some sort of association with a group around which we avoid open discussion except to assume the right to pass judgement based on erroneos, spiteful data as well as assign blame! Right?

    Fella, that fact that you are allowing your dark minded shadow to fall upon earnest efforts to assist HUSD is something you ought avoid. You have not been observed in any effort on the blog to assist solution of HUSD’s problems.

  • Michael Moore

    Prester John, the Hitler Youth were and are still Hitler Youth. The Pope defends and protects priests who have been convicted of child abuse. WE should all be protected from these priests who should be registered with the state and kept far away from schools and children. In fact they should be in jail where they can be properly schooled.

    Perhaps there should be a town rally to see what to do with criminal priests and Hitler Youth members in Hayward. I am certain that the defenders of the Nazis and child abusers will not be well thought of. Stand up for what you are revealed to be Prester John. We all know you.

    Booth.

    As a late joiner, who the heck are you to attempt censorshiip ?

    Name the instance when y=you out forward a creative ideda to aid HUSD iut of it’s present dilemma.

    In item #11 I wrote of an effort to enlist all folk to come to the aid of HUSD. Because of the expense or reproduction and postage I could not possible afford the expense of a mailing to all in the area areas of the region involved with HUSDD.

    Next best Thing…. Write to all Churches involved with spreading the word of the Gospels found in the New Testament. Here again I could not afford to scour the City looking for all the churches … rather than that, I appealed to the serious readers and contributors of the blog to seek out their Pastors to deternine if their church was a recipient of the material I had prepared… so that they too would be advised if theirs had not been a recipient.

    Ms. Booth, since the middle of the first week of August when you made your first contribution, if that is what they are is to be called, you have engaged in nothing but contempuos forms of slander aimed ar destroying candidates to public offise whom you personally dislike. You make quick judgewments on candidates and that is a great error; a bigger error is to make judgments perceived to be licentuous by readers who fail to see specific charges from you, rather than licentuous remarks. Lady, a perfect5 sense of justice is not preent in most, if any of us, but in you it is totally absent.

    What do you propose to do to address the terrible loss of ADA money which so seriously affects the delivery of education. The blog has missed any contribution from you on that point.

    I challenge you to think hard, especially on that point!

    I give up oN MR. MOORE WHO HAS A SERIOUS PROBLEM ALSO! HE, ( MOORE) CONCENTRATES HIS REMARKS ON MATTERS OUTSIDE CONCERN FOR EDUCATION, AND DENIES THOUGHTS of any WHETHER HIS OR SOMEONE OUTSIDE HIS ‘CIRCLE’ on matters CENTERING ON THE CRISIS FACING HUSD.

    IF NEITHER OF YOU in your homeIS A MEMBER OF A CHURCH, THEN DO NOT DENY THAT THERE IS STRONG POSSIBILITY THAT churches CAN COME TOGETHER IN COMMON CAUSE TO SUPPORT THE REMARKS OF CHRIST AS THEy APPEAR IN THE TESTAMENTS OF MARK LUKE AND MATTHEW, ‘LET THE CHILDREN COME TO ME….’

    THE CHALLENGE WAS NOT SPECIFICALLY DIRECTED TO YOU! IF NOT ‘CHURCHED’ dO NOT ATTEMPT RESTRICTION OF THE ADVICE I OFFERED ABOVE AT #11…….. IT MIGHT BE THROWN BACK TO YOU ON THE DAY OF JUDGEMENT WE ALL FACE.

    POOR MR.mOORE,HE APPRAEWMNTLY LIVES OUTSIDE THE PALE OF ANY CHURCH. hE TOO HAS NOT OFFERED A SPECIFIC PLAN OD ACTION IN AID OF CHILDREN AYYENDING HUSD !

  • http://None Kathi Booth

    Mr. Kyle,
    For the last time I have not made slanderous remarks about any person who may be on the board or who was running for a spot on the board. I have not made licentuous remarks about any public official. Furthermore, if any of those people who you seem hell bent to defend felt my remarks were slanderous then it incumbent upon them, NOT YOU, to take offense and set the wheels in motion to censure me.

    You again have no idea if I do or don’t have a relationship with a church in this area. Assumptions are your middle name…find the fact before you post anything about me…you fool. You know not what justice is…

    Please stop quoting biblical verses to me or about me. It is an insult. May I remind you Mr. Kyle about the quote “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone”. I am not so sure that you fall into this category, in fact I am sure you don’t. Again, please find a different outlet for your religious zeal. If churches have not responded to your proposals then perhaps they do not find the worthy of their time, money or effort. Why not take a hint sir?

    I fear no day of judgement Mr. Kyle, but I will pray that you pass muster when it is your time. Venom, vileness and hatered are in your soul. It will take more than a few Hail Marys and confession to cleanse your sins.

  • Michael Moore

    Prester John, the first post here was in praise of the City of Hayward in their suit to restrain the avarice of the State in their continuous efforts to destroy the Hayward Master Plan with the overdevelopment of the CSUEB campus. The inadequate planning so far has at least been acknowledged by the courts. Let us hope that this brings this development to a halt.

    I shall continue to hope that you will fade away, learn to spell, use the keyboard correctly and learn to face the truth that the RC Church continues to shield evil priests and misrepresent the facts to their congregants and communities. If only Megan’s law were enforced upon the church. There would be fewer priests destroying children.

  • John W. Kyle

    Moore,

    I guess I’ll have to dig out the study done by that merchant in the central area of the US. He revealed some interesting datra about protestant Clergy which ought bring your attention to tjhe Poaitive side of RC activity…. broasden your mind and dispel your antagonism on but one part of the overall problem.

  • John W. Kyle

    Booth

    I do not have time to go back into archives to quote you directly .

    However I remmind you of your direct support for the utterances of Obama New Age who most cert5ainly did. In those intances where I brought to your attention to those slanderous remarks you told me, in effect to buzz off.

    Irf you defended that individual’s remarks, then is there not cause to state you are justr as guilty.

    Now, reach back ihto your memory and further opportunity to write in disparaging comments about me and point tio the last occasion in 20 years when you took direct oart in open public gatherings which directed effort to intention of aiding HUSD

    I think it amusing that you only joined in with contributions to Blog which for the most part failed recognition of a basic problem coupled with suggestions for solution.

    Your failure to respond for requested understanding of the difference between the words “free Speech” and “licentuous speech’ is indicative of your value as a contributor.

    Now, as a dedicated member of a church, seek out the Pastor and aske to read the content of my =Novemebre 5 letter…. if not one of those to whom I sent a copy, then follow the instruction at item #11 above.

    When possessed of the content orf that enclosure labeled “Truancy Rates 2009 – 2010 where you will find scribbled annotations, learn that truancy rate doubled from experience 2008 – 2009 from a ‘mere’ 25.45% to
    48.94 %

    Truancy at k-6 was at 33% at Middle schools 64.3% and at Hs 74% which might have been higher if statistics at Brenkwitz had not helped.

    I think you owe yourself a visit to your Pastor….. it may even afford opportunity for a bit of back biting, assuming that enlightment is not your thing!

    Now matter how you view my effort with the churches… give me at least a minor amount orf credit for trying to aid HUSD out of it’s money crisis.

    Do not let your personal antipathy stand between me and the right thing to do for HUSD. ! Enter into a positive effort as between your Church AND HUSD

  • Michael Moore

    Prester John, the issue is the continued presence of predators in our neighborhoods and the criminals, like the RC Church that protect them. The most recent numbers that I have seen are between 5-10 per cent of RC priests are pedophiles. You will have to go outside of the RC Church for the actual numbers though, since the Pope denies this is a continuing uncorrected problem.

    Mr. Kyle,
    Again I implore you to stop with the religious advice and assumptions directed toward me. Any clergyman or woman who read your venom would not want to work with you for fear of bringing down your wrath upon them and their church. I dare say they would be offering prayers for your soul’s salvation. The last time I checked, the Christian ethic advises that you accept what you cannot change, in this case it is me. Nothing you recommend will ever become an action of mine.
    Obama Newage and anyone else has the right to speak or write their opinions regarding an elected official. If the subject of the criticism, the elected official, finds slanderous remarks it is their perrogative to take action. The mere fact that I don’t choose to respond to a challenge by to you to look up a word in the dictionary is my choice and no amount of chastizing from you will cause me to do your beckoning.

    Finally, you have no idea what I may or may not have done on behalf of students in HUSD. Public speach making does not guarantee that a job will be done or that you will be heard. I have assisted HUSD in many areas and Unlike you I do not feel the need to toot my own horn. My work is and will continue to be my own contribution to students and parents, always with the hope of a positive outcome.

    I really don’t know why I continue to respond to your drivvle, I guess it is because I am compelled to help the feeble minded and confused.

    Moore;

    You have made it your issue. If you really belive the problem continues then take your facts directly to the Police and.or the nearest opportunistic lawyer.

    If you have no specifics then is it not best to remain silent. Where you personally involved? Have you not yet been recompensated as far as the law allows? If you admit to being a victim and have been recompensed, then the avenue best open to you is personal prayer.

    Try a retreat?

  • John W. Kyle

    Booth;

    Not worth the time to reply. You need help! Try a personal conversation with anyone quallified to under take the task!

    This above all, if you accept the above advice, it will nothing unless you are factually honest with that consultant.

    Prester John, the problem of Child Abusers in the Hayward schools is much closer than you choose to admit. You chose not to comment then and I suspect you will come up with some long story now. That does not excuse the sorry state of affairs in HUSD, specifically with the folks who hired William Foreman, those who investigated him, and the administration of both Winton and the District who continue to evade comment. Perhaps with the new members there will be enough interest in eliminating the lousy procedures that enabled the hiring of Foreman.

    In September, Eric reported the following,

    HAYWARD — A Winton Middle School teacher is facing felony child pornography charges in San Francisco, where he lives. According to the San Francisco District Attorney’s Office, William Foreman, 41, turned himself in to police and was arrested on Sept. 13 following an investigation. San Francisco police declined to provide details of the investigation and what they believe Foreman did, but the district attorney said charges include a felony count of possession of child porn, a felony count of distributing obscene material depicting a person under 18, and a misdemeanor count related to the sexual exploitation of a child. Hayward Unified School District officials said Foreman was placed on administrative leave Aug. 24. Foreman was arraigned on Sept. 17, but his plea was delayed until Oct. 28, according to district attorney spokeswoman Erica Derryck. He has been released on bail. Foreman, who has an address in the Crocker-Amazon neighborhood of San Francisco, has been employed by Hayward Unified since the 2006-07 school year. Before teaching at Winton, he taught at Hayward High. Hayward police said they are not part of the investigation.

    Moore’

    HUSD’s compirtman since the exposure has been correct.

    In this country a trial is usually conducted before the Jufge p[asses sentence, assuning that guilt has been proven.

    If HUSWD were to follow your induicated course of action and if it was later provemn that the masn was innocent…. then the question beco,mes…. does Hayward have the cash necessary to settkle with a falsly accused individual.

    I perceive your troube revolves around your own need for immediate justice, as you see the need.

    Fortunatrely, due process is involved and not a ‘kangaroo court’ where charges and counter charges hop arond the lot.

    Think Michael, Think!

    If the man is found innocent…. will Kurhi lose his job with a dying newspaper?

    Cal State has overbuilt and used up its parking lots. There are more buildings and less and less places to put a car. I don’t mean close, I mean anywhere at all. Then it costs students $130 per quarter for a parking permit. Cal State is always a challenge when it rains, there is no cover and it is on top of a hill. This parking makes it worse. Now the students are paying huge fees to build a parking garage (how safe it that in earthquake country) but no garage is being built. The place where the garage is being built used to be parking that is now not available. Cal State East Bay is a built campus without room to expand. The Concord campus has a couple of buildings in a huge open area miles from anywhere (and very little parking). Cal State is big enough, being able to handle 11,000 students. Its not like there are no other CSU campuses available in this area. There are several.

    Mr. Kyle,
    Do me a favor and don’t respond with your garbage anymore. Don’t advise me and I will give you the same respect.

    You are a sick individual who gets great pleasure from denegrading others. Find someone else to spew your garbage upon, I am tired and wish to get back to opining on HUSD and city business without your input, or reminising on what you did in the past to prevent problems.

    Qodrn,
    I agree that planning was lacking when they built the campus and the construction of new homes all around did not help the situation any. Now they and we are land locked in that area. They all need to stop and take a breath and refocus on what can be done. Perhaps limiting enrollment is the answer for now.

    Qodrn, you are absolutely right. Stopping the growth at CSUEB is critical and the city counsel is to be commended for their effort. Good job.

    Prester John, a little more coverage of active cases against the Catholic Church local diocese in Oakland.
    Lawsuit filed against the Diocese of Oakland
    By Angela Hill
    Oakland Tribune
    Posted: 11/09/2010 03:39:16 PM PST
    Updated: 11/09/2010 04:29:35 PM PST

    OAKLAND — A lawsuit was filed Tuesday against the Diocese of Oakland, charging negligence and a cover-up of a sexual-abuse case of a young girl in the early 1980s.

    Sacramento-based attorney Joseph George said he filed the case in Alameda County Superior Court on behalf of a woman, now in her 40s, who said she was molested by Monsignor Vincent Breen while working in the rectory of Holy Spirit Church in Fremont during 1980-81.

    Breen, who died in 1986, remained at Holy Spirit until he was forced into retirement in 1982 after a police investigation found that he had molested at least seven other girls ages 7 to 14, according to published reports.

    To announce this latest suit, Melanie Sakoda, director of the support group Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, and two group members held a news conference Tuesday on the sidewalk in front of the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland.

    “We’re here to call attention to the lawsuit so other abuse victims might come forward,” Sakoda said. “There must be others who saw something or heard something at the time of this abuse and may have been victims themselves. Only 10 percent of people sexually abused actually end up telling somebody about it. So we’re also here to remind people who haven’t come forward that they’re not alone.”

    Diocese spokesman Mike Brown said he couldn’t comment on the specifics of the lawsuit as the diocese hadn’t been officially served with papers, but provided a prepared list of actions the diocese has taken to eliminate abuse and to assist victims of past incidents.

    “Over the past few months, various attorneys and clients have been holding media events on the steps of the Cathedral of Christ the Light in Oakland, often to announce plans to file lawsuits, sometimes alleging clergy sexual abuse, cover-ups, complicity and the like,” the prepared statement reads. “After the spectacle of the media event, important facts need to be restated. The Diocese of Oakland, since Bishop John Cummins, has been in the forefront of recognizing the evils of clergy sexual abuse and of ministering to its victims. In the Diocese of Oakland there are no known cases of sexual abuse by clergy to have taken place during the past 20 years.”

    Booth,

    Garbage? Ask your Pastor for his opinion about the ‘garbage’ placed in the Nail Delivery system on Nove 5. 2010.

  • http://None Kathi Booth

    Mr. Kylel,
    Since my pastor is not affiliated with a church in greater Hayward it would be of no use. However, said pastor has looked at the blog entries you have so kindly submitted over the past few months and is praying for your soul each and every day. You see said pastor is of the mind that venom is venom and you need all the prayers you can get. Surprise, sir, there are some in the religious community that do not approve of your entries or your abundance of misinformation. Now before you ask me to reveal said pastor’s name to you, be aware that if such information is deemed important to you then you will receive a letter in the mail poseted by the pastor. But don’t hold your breath sir, not all are as compelled to smack you down as I am.

    Of course we are all prepared for you to accuse me of only pretending to have a pastor, because you simply cannot resist attempts to discredit me. So accuse away sir. I have come to realize that you get your jollies from your abuse of me.

    Prester John, you need to read more closely. The case was filed today against your diocese. With luck your bunch will be bankrupt and gone within out lifetimes.

  • John W. Kyle

    Booth and Moore

    Happy Holidays to both of you, and good luck to both of you! I’ll not be posting again until February if at all. I sense that Daily Review, Fremont’s Argus’ and another in Pleasanton will be folded into the Oakland Tribune, Contra Costa Times and San Jose Mercury News. In addition, if you have not noticed….. some of the more level headed folk who contributed to Hayword have already faded away.

    Kathy’s Pastor is welcome to a copy of my November 5th 2010 letter to Hayward Churches. Have him provide his address, advise him of my address as seen in Hayward phone book. If he then advises me of desire for a good, informative read, plus his mailing address I will mail a copy to him personally. Who knows, he might come to the point where he encourages those of his acquaintance having influence with other Pastors in Hayward and convince them to aid an activity that provides real assistance from volunteer folk who need unshackled opportunity to assist HUSD.

    The project is easily achievable of success, well reasoned and needs only consideration by those folks who are thoughtful enough to recognize their own need as well as to encourage greater participation of others in an activity necessary to future success of HUSD.

    Frankly, I would actually encourage the participation of you both with the single restriction placed on you if participation is desired!. Which is to say, be aware that there will be no finger pointing or placing blame on others which involves the present condition of HUSD..

    Mr. Moore, you are taking on a monumental task if you think you are able to bring down a religious Faith which has existed over 2,000 years.

    So glad you are taking a break Mr. Kyle….Have a wonderful time exploring kindness to your fellow man. I hope you discover that your words are and were hurtful and filled with hate and that you find a way to accept those who differ with you in a much more Christian way.

    Mr. Kyle yoou did enough finger pointing against my husband to fill 20 garbage bags. The finger pointing should stop with you and it looks as if that will be accomplished by your absence from this blog.
