The letter who opined in your last issue that our community should Reform the School Board by Recalling Virginia Maas has it right. Claiming that "Reform" means Revive Educational Faith and Opportunity by Recalling Maas should indeed be a call to action for all of us. We cannot afford to sit idle and hope that Ms. Maas will act in the best inter- ests of our children. She has shown that an acid tongue, strident positions, and imprudent remarks are her hallmark. Our community should remember that unless we move now, Ms. Maas will be with us for four long and tortuous years. To put that in context, her reign will continue through the life of every high school stu- dent now attending Beverly Hills High School. Those children will never be able to recover from the bad decisions of Ms. Maas. We must not let our schools be guided by such an impetuous, disre- spectful, and insolent board member. Many of us view the Weekly as our community newspaper. You provide valuable information and interesting sto- ries week in and week out. That is why I was surprised to find no response to the letter writer's heartfelt request that you publish an article on the procedures for ,00SNAPSHOT recall. Whom do we call? How many signatures does it take? When might a recall election be held? There are now legions of well-meaning people in our community who are waiting for the information, and who expect that your newspaper will be the first to print. Lewis W. Shepherd Beverly Hills I have not seen the Virginia Maas "video clip" from the school board meeting nor do I intend to. Therefore, I cannot comment on the content, substance, validity or propriety of her statement. What I can comment on is this: although the event took place many weeks ago and is now ancient history, the BH Weekly continues to publish letters from "outraged" citizens. You've made your paper's position clear. But, it's time to move on. Surely in a com- munity as diverse as BH you can find other issues raised by the letters-to- the-editor you receive. Publish them!
