MVHS neighbors want say in field lights

Original post made on Oct 30, 2012

The Mountain View Los Altos High School board has scheduled one night football game on Oct. 26, with temporary lights, at the Mountain View High School field. We are among the neighbors who oppose approval of this game and we also are among the many neighbors who are strong supporters of the school.

Very nice letter and typical of those that I have seen from the "its all about me" neighbors next to the school. First of all, having talked to the many parents who volunteered to bring this "night game" to the school - your summize that the "board/district took over" is as naive as your idea of how much weight the neighbors opinions should have on school policies and events. The "district", out side of voting unanimous to have the game, did very little and it was the parents that made this event happen. As far as what the future holds, it's my guess that you are (again) sadly naive to think that this is going to be a "one time only" night game. You either didn't go to the game that night and/or have never been to a ridiculous 3:00 afternoon game to see the difference and the subsequent benefit to the school and community - not to mention you must have no idea what the rest of the schools in the county offer in terms of sports. You very much need a reality check. Here's a new thought for you - the housing market is very good right now. I'd think about moving but then you'd need a new topic to complain about.
