LEAD class offers ‘tremendous’ opportunity

I’ve just experienced a fabulous way to learn about the inner workings of Los Altos’ leading institutions – local government, the elementary school district, the high school district, our local community college, our local businesses, the police department and a variety of other organizations working for the social and economic good of all local residents.

I am, of course, referring to the Leadership Education and Advancement (LEAD) class offered each spring by Los Altos Community Foundation, led by Claudia Coleman. I was amazed by the opportunity to speak directly with the leaders of these organizations and to learn about the challenges they are facing and the ways that I can assist them in their missions. It’s really a tremendous opportunity to get an inside look at what’s going on and how to get involved.

Solution near for 10th LASD site

I found the June 15 “Other Voices” column odd (“It’s time to consider existing land options for 10th school”). As someone who has been intimately involved with facilities issues facing the Los Altos School District, I firmly believe if there were ever an issue that did not need more community input, it is the issue of the 10th school.

We have had multiple community forums. We have had multiple lawsuits. We have had multiple school board elections and a bond election. All of this community input has expressed a strong desire not to crowd our current facilities and not to get rid of open space that the entire community uses, whether or not their children attend Los Altos School District schools.

Cuesta Drive: Not such a safe route to school

I noticed that the June 7 and 14 issues of the Town Crier featured a series of articles about the dangers of biking to school in south Los Altos.

I would like to bring your attention to one of the most dangerous areas of the city: Cuesta Drive between El Monte Avenue and Springer Road. Two weeks ago a high school student riding his bike in the morning was struck by a car in the intersection of Cuesta and El Monte. Then just the other day, there was a car collision in the same intersection during the after-school hours, between 3 and 4 p.m. These collisions are a consequence of the unaddressed speed and traffic issues on Cuesta Drive.
