Message: VFW breakfast is this coming Sunday. The new chefs and cooks have tweaked the menu some, but I'm sure it's every bit as good. And a belated Happy BD to Phil 'WOW' Christiana. Many a moon had passed since you and Tom were sitting on my lap in the Plaza theater just to see the screen, you on one knee and Tom on the other. How unfair life is when all you have is boys around you & you're the "baby sitter." Back then there were no Cougars...just babysitters. It was fun and I'd do it all again if I could.

Message: I am no fan of classmates.com, but they do hold all our HHS yearbooks from 1953 to 1988, except for 1955-59 and 1974. They will happily scan and offer expensive reprints for sale of the 1959 book and any other missing ones. I sent in two, got a $25 Amazon coupon and a one- year membership for the first and a coupon for the second. Be careful to specify that you want your book back. For their own cryptic reasons they want no books after 1988 at this time. I also sent in my mother's 1939 yearbook from South High in Minneapolis, MN.

Message: Just read the (rather snarky) post by "Robin Hood" about the uproar over the $600K salary that CVUHSD's superintendent is making. Yes, I am aware that the superintendent of LAUSD is making half that amount. Look at the size of the district he oversees. Centinela Valley is a drop in the bucket in size in comparison. Sounds to me that you favor the fleecing of the district's taxpayers.

Message: hey John...I don't want to beat a dead horse here but I just read the daily breeze article about the CV Superintendant. That $663K salary has to be a multiyear contract. And his salary by CA law must be posted for 2 days after the board makes a decision for anything over $100. And anyone can ask for a copy of the minutes of said meeting, especially the public who voted the board in. Also LA County S.D. must approve this and thats not going to happen. LAUSD Super makes less than half of that so keep your pants on Armand...Its either a D.Breeze error in reporting or Jose will need the $900K for his new bed. Just sayin'...

Message: Amen, Armand! The Daily Breeze needs to dig a lot deeper into this horror story. It's supposed to be about education and the extras that add to the student's quality of life ... athletics, band, cheerleaders, clubs, etc. Even the City of Hawthorne's never done anything quite this flagrant. School patrons need to take the steps for a recall of the board members, elect new ones and then fire the guy. Or complain to the state board of education. This is wrong!

I first met Kim in the 5th grade at Williams and since then became the best of friends, she was the type of friend you come across once in a life time, she would give you the shirt of her back to help you and was so caring. I miss my friend so much, but I know we will meet again and pick up where we left off.

Message: Superintendent Jose Fernandez wouldn't be getting his fat $663,000 salary were it not for the generosity of the school board. Let's not forget his sweetheart $900,000 loan at 2% for 40 years. Gee, all that money could be going to the sports department and other departments in need of funding. It's the same-old, same-old political machine politics in Hawthorne. Looks like the jackasses on the school board didn't learn anything from the scandal in the City of Bell.

Message: I'm another Costco lover, especially the Hawthorne Business Costco on El Segundo and Prairie, next to Memorial Park; where many times the customers out number the employees. Where else can you enjoy such a variety of free entrees than from their famous all-you-can-eat buffet? The other day I enjoyed a Mexican burrito, Chinese chicken salad, grilled tilapia, a cheeseburger, trail mix, flavored water and a granola bar. The portion sizes are perfect and you don't have to leave a tip. I love America!!
