THE PEYTON PLACE SIDE OF SCHOOL -
BSC, CA – The next meeting to decide whether UCR gets to partner with RUSD and build a high school for elites on campus at the detriment to Blaine-Watkins traffic, auguring the local neighborhood, is Part 2. The discussion area on November 1st has been expanded to make room for a larger crowd than before, and is set for Conference Rooms C& D, housed in the building pictured below, a familiar sight on University Ave.
The meeting time is 6PM Thursday[originally Thor's Day before Stan The Man]. Parking is available but this blog spot recommends that you have $3 for parking, just in case. It is also recommended that you arrive early to get up to speed, formulate your input, and be ready to speak in the 3 min window, if you have something to say. This is a hot button issue and the start of November, the run-up to our coming midterm elections.
There is also something in the air about universities expanding their size footprint that doesn't just concern Riverside, not by a long shot. You may think that college is training tomorrow's leaders, but is it really training tomorrow's citizens to be replacements? This is a point to ponder upon as you make the jump. Read the Peyton Place side of UCR. It all begins with No Buses in Super Kmart parking lot.
Remember this picture from a few days ago?

Today that same area looks like this but from an opposite angle with no glass reflections.

What happened?? Did the lights come on in the kitchen at 2am in the morning and your neighbor isn't an elite? Since this is all about money and not the students, high school or college, it gets better. It isn't just the Strikers who have said UCR bargains in bad faith.
According to sources, instead of emailing the people who signed the sheet at the last meeting, supporters and people who live outside the neighborhood were emailed instead to load the dice. Where's Donna Brazile when you really need her? And there's parking.
This special 'high school on campus' meeting could have been held at a free RUSD parking lot after hours using an auditorium instead of a hustle or a hassle over UCR Lot 50, located on both rear sides of the Extension Center, which also houses people.
But you see this program isn't really for students, high schoolers, around here hence no local HS involvement, By now you must be asking yourself, is there another bend around these Twin Peaks?
Yes, but don't panic as JC would say, just follow the link and show up for the Nov. 1st UCR+RUSD meeting. Speak Up and Vote.
