  1. One of Santa Ana’s most famous residents celebrated in Song

    The “Flying Irish Man”
    Douglas “Wrong Way” Corrigan celebrated in Song-for Irish American Heritage Month

    Corrigan Brothers, the Irish Band whose international hit “There’s no one as Irish as Barack Obama” has reached ten million you tube hits and charted all over the world have written a song to celebrate Douglas “Wrong Way” Corrigan. Lead singer Ger Corrigan explained the inspiration for the song “ every Corrigan gets called “wrong way” at some stage in their life and we suspect that Douglas Corrigan always intended to fly to Ireland and his story was a ruse to avoid the strict regulations of the time, he perhaps should be renamed “Right Way” Corrigan. We are currently researching our family tree and are confident of finding a link to Douglas. Corrigan Brothers are currently recording their second album “Our Favourite Irish Songs” and will begin a world tour in October 2013.

    To Fly across to Ireland
    And see the Emerald Isle

  3. Heard some reliable info about why the red light camera program was truly terminated…..A little birdie said that a couple of SA city council members got caught running red lights….When they called the SAPD to see how to “take care” of the tickets (and you know what I mean), they were told to show up to court on the date given as everyone else does…Apparently, they didn’t like the SAPD response and worked towards terminating the program……I am pretty sure that the traffic division can confirm that info…..

    TEACHERS DESERVE THANKS, NOT BLAME

    by Dr. Tom Staszewski tomstasz@neo.rr.com

    As our public schools begin another school year, it’s time to stop blaming and
    criticizing teachers and start thanking and acknowledging them.

    Our schools reflect society, and society has undergone a dramatic shift from
    previous generations. A typical classroom today consists of many students with
    severe behavioral problems, limited knowledge of English usage, emotional and
    psychological difficulties, learning disabilities and attention-deficit
    disorders. And many suffer from abuse and other adverse home and socioeconomic
    conditions.

    Unlike previous generations, many parents today send their kids to school unfed,
    unprepared and with little or no basic skills nor social skills. In many
    neighborhoods, it’s the school building, not the child’s home, that provides a
    safe, secure and predictable haven. Despite these societal problems, we need to
    focus on the success stories of what’s right with our schools rather than what’s
    wrong with our schools.

    In my previous work as a motivational speaker and professional development
    trainer, I have personally worked with thousands of teachers nationwide. I have
    found them to be caring, hardworking, dedicated, industrious and sincerely
    committed to the success of their students.

    Teachers’ duties have now grown to the added dimensions of counselor, mentor,
    coach, resource person, mediator, motivator, enforcer and adviser.
    Instead of acknowledging that teaching is a demanding profession, critics will
    often focus on the supposedly shortened workday of teachers. Still others claim,
    “Yes, teachers are busy, but at least they get a planning period each day to
    help get things done.” In reality, the so-called planning period is really a
    misnomer. A typical teacher is so involved with the day’s activities that
    usually there is no time to stop and plan. Those minutes that are supposed to be
    devoted to planning are often filled with endless amounts of paperwork,
    meetings, interruptions, schedule changes, extra assigned duties, phone calls,
    conferences, gathering missed work for absent students, completing forms,
    submitting required data and on and on. Maybe they call it a planning period,
    because there’s NO time left for planning…period!

    Most teachers leave the building long after the students’ dismissal time and
    usually with plenty of paperwork and tests to correct. Evenings are spent
    reviewing homework assignments and planning for the next day of teaching.

    In addition to earning a bachelor’s degree and teaching certificate/license,
    once teachers begin to work in the classroom, they need to immediately continue
    their own education. During summertime, they are constantly updating their
    education, earning a graduate degree or two and making sure their teaching
    certificates are active and valid.

    Too many people have the mistaken notion that anyone can teach. They think that
    they could teach because they have seen other people teach. Yet, when looking at
    other professions and occupations, these same people understand that they can’t
    perform those jobs. They may have briefly seen the
    cockpit of an airplane, but they don’t assume they can fly it. They may have
    spent an hour in a courtroom but don’t believe that they can practice law. They
    certainly don’t think they are able to perform surgery.

    Every day, teachers are making a significant difference. At any given moment,
    teachers are influencing children in positive and meaningful ways. Many societal
    problems exist, such as violence, drugs, broken homes, poverty, economic crises
    and a variety of other woes. Teachers struggle with the turmoil of society while
    trying to offset the negative influences outside of school. As they roll up
    their sleeves and take strides to improve the lives of their students, teachers
    are the real heroes.

    Today’s teacher is more than a transmitter of knowledge; the demands of the
    profession are ever-increasing. Many parents and taxpayers have an expectation
    that a school system should be the do all and be all in their children’s lives.
    Some parents have a notion that they can drop off their child at the schoolhouse
    door, and behold, 12 years later, they will be able to pick up a perfect
    specimen of a human being — well-rounded, academically proficient, emotionally
    sound, physically fit and ready to meet the next phase of life.

    But we know that teachers cannot do it alone. A sound, safe and secure home life
    is essential. An effort on the parent’s part to prepare the child for school is
    vital. And parental involvement that results in a partnership in the child’s
    development is necessary. When that doesn’t occur, then it’s easy to scapegoat
    the classroom teacher.

    As the school year begins, our public schools welcome everyone. The
    individual classroom teacher is faced with dozens and dozens of human beings
    who come to school in varying degrees of ability, potential, maturity,
    motivation levels, and readiness to learn. Students arrive with a tremendous
    amount of baggage, with various health and nutrition factors, family
    issues, neighborhood influences and differing socioeconomic levels.

    In today’s climate of high stakes testing, business leaders and
    politicians continue to demand better results with data driven assessments
    and test scores. It is important to realize that the classroom is not a
    factory floor where uniformity and precise precision can be molded into just
    one final finished product. Unlike the manufacturing arena, teachers don’t
    select the raw materials (students). All are welcome as teachers strive to
    meet and serve all levels and all kinds of students. Test results will always
    vary from low to high ranges because schools are dealing with human beings with
    varying degrees of potential. The school is not an assembly line that can
    mass-produce exact templates of finished products meeting the same exact
    predetermined standard.

    Instead of bashing our teachers, we should be conveying recognition, accolades,
    tributes and positive acknowledgments. Teachers deserve a sincere thank-you for
    the tremendous benefits they provide society. And that’s why my all-time
    favorite bumper sticker offers a profound and important declaration: “If you can
    read this … thank a teacher!”

    In our schools today, there are thousands of success stories waiting to be told
    and there’s a need to proclaim those successes proudly and boldly. Teachers
    should stand tall and be proud of their chosen profession. Critics should not
    judge them unfairly. Together, let’s become teacher advocates and show
    admiration for the inspiring and important life-changing work they do.

  7. Hello,

    Have you heard the news about how SAUSD has just gave back half the jobs you reported were gonna get cut?

    I will assume you haven’t, since there is no story about it. I would hate to think you knew about it and did not report for other reasons.

  10. You ran an article about how people should purchase life insurance instead of depending on GoFundMe to pay for funeral and personal expenses. Sometimes families don’t get what they ask for in donations and that is why it is important for people to purchase life insurance. Funeral expenses have doubled since the pandemic and there are two different expenses, one the funeral home and the second cemetery expense.
