OPEN RECORDS REQUEST GOING TO AG

I forgot I had these open records requests pending.  Like I said I have been dealing with  a really bad cold.  The BV IS GOING DOWN TODAY - THIS CHANGES NOTHING

RENDON CONTINUES TO BE
PROBLEM FOR BISD

In a previous post I stated a vendor is claiming Art Rendon, Transportation, told him to not bother with the bid on advertising on school buses because the contract was going to a Houston company.  I did an open records request on the matter.  As BISD response shows no agenda item was ever posted on it and no requests for bids ever went out.  Why is BISD awarding these contracts through the back door.

See BISD response

http://www.docstoc.com/docs/103970786/scan0005

WHERE ARE THE RENDON SETTLEMENT CHECKS

I also asked for copies of the Rendon settlement checks.  The date on the response to me is November 16, 2011.  BISD responded with no checks made out to Rendon or Ace insurance exist as related to the Rendon settlement.  Why is BISD hiding the truth about how much Rendon was paid?

Remember according to court documents filed by Rendon - he was paid by the 10th.

From Rendon's own pleadings dated the 10th.

""Plaintiff has this day received settlement funds."

Going to the AG along with the complaint related to failure to answer the questions is the documentation that Art Rendon, Antonio Juarez, and Pat Lehmann gave Enrique Escobedo's brother a million dollar contract just days before Escobedo voted to reinstate Art Rendon.

I ALSO ASKED FOR COPIES OF ALL
THE PAC'S FINANCIAL DISCLOSURE

This was ready for me to pick up last week, but I was already coming down with the cold so I did not go retrieve them. I did today - Drue Brown is claiming the financial reports either do not exist or they are missing. Only one could be found. Why is BISD covering up for the PAC - does Drue Brown really think the Texas Ethics Commission is going to play.

Also going to the AG is the Mary Rey Deposition along with the documents which link the PAC to Healthsmart
THE RULES STILL MATTER

Because of the non-responsiveness by BISD, including my request for a document which shows the breakdown of the settlement as agreed to by the parties in the Rendon matter, the matter now goes to the Attorney General. The Attorney General can now sort out the mess at BISD.

TOMORROW'S FACES OF CONTEMPT
FOR JUSTICE AND THE PEOPLE

Well technically Sofia Benavides is already at it.   I'm dealing with a real bad cold and am kind of tired.  A friend called me and asked why I had not posted this before the good bye as planned.  I just forgot - I think  I was relieved to finally be able to post the good-bye - the final screen will be the same good bye.  The BV is gone - all that is left to post is the Congressional maps if the court releases them - and the document I am being told is being posted to the internet today.  If either of these materialize before midnight I will post them, unless I am asleep then the deadline is when I go to bed.

While it is true that after the Mary Rey video Carlos Masso had the good sense to pull his ads from Montoya's rag sheet, it does not change the fact he knew and financially supported Montoya's role as the mouth piece for the conduct by the BISD majority.  If the State does it job there will be indictments over the bogus PAC created as a front to run a dirty campaign and corrupt the process.  If this be the case then it can be said Carlos Masso knowingly financially backed a criminal enterprise for a handful of votes .

At this point Alez Domingues, Yolanda Begum, and Sofia Benavides know full well they are backing a criminal enterprise to defraud the voters and taxpayers.  Mary Rey's testimony has enough verifiable facts to prove this.  She clearly did not place the ads - her name was misspelled.  Montoya consistently misspelled her name.  Also NBC 23 staff are going to verify for the Texas Ethics Commission that Montoya represented himself as the public relations guy for the PAC and in fact brought them the commercial NBC 23 rejected as defamatory.  This is all verifiable and more than enough to being criminal charges if Texas is so inclined to do its job.

What all four of these candidates have in common is a desperation to win at any cost.  If this is how they are  entering the race, why would we expect anything different once elected.

People cannot forget that Carlos Masso was a key player in Dannebaum getting away with the heist of $21.4 million dollars of taxpayer money.  By his own admission the bonds on this $21.4 million dollars is the only reason we even pay property taxes to the BND.

My readers say they want change and change can come about if people fight.  Well then fight - let my readers start an email campaign  to everyone they know and inform them how these 4 knowingly financed the propaganda machine for BISD's corruption.  If any of these 4 win election Brownsville will only be indicting itself as incapable of change.

SOFIA BENAVIDES AND YOLANDA BEGUM DISHONER ALL WOMEN WHO HAVE BEEN VICTIMS OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE

I will never forget the vile and horrendous attacks Montoya encouraged against Commission Jessica Tetreau in regards to the domestic violence problems in her marriage. Every year women and children die because of domestic abuse.  Every year children become permanently emotionally damaged by domestic violence.  Montoya's response was to encourage a vile attack on Jessica for no better reason than she helped to stop the $2.5 million heist by Fly Frontera.  Domestic violence is not a political game - it is a matter of life or death - you would not know this by Sofia Benavides and Yolanda Begum's conduct.

Any woman who could vote for women like Sofia Benavides or Yolanda Begum must have serious issues of low self esteemed.  No emotionally stable woman could ever defend these women for their silence when Jessica Tetreau was so viciously attacked by Montoya and his readers.

Domestic violence is not a joke - it is an issue which because of women like Yolanda Begum and Sofia Benavides is discounted in our society - there response is - "hey this is politics - we need votes and Ben Neece told us if we advertise here we can get votes - screw morality and domestic abuse - we demand votes."

This is why nothing ever changes.

Asking my readers to keep reading in hopes of change would be a lie.  It would be the equivalent of me asking a town which has seen its entire town burned to the ground to turn on their hoses in hopes of saving the town. 

If Brownsville wants to  take a stand it needs to take a stand against these 4.  I know Brownsville - "yea but she puts on really good campaign events"  hence why the BV is shutting down.  I will not be party to asking people to take hoses to a town which has already burned to the ground.  It would make me a liar and a fraud.

GOOD-BYE FROM THE BV

No comments will be accepted after midnight. I have no idea how long I will keep the blog up. There is important information with links to documents and sources which other people may want to access. For now, I plan to just keep it up.

No movie reviews, no recipes, no news.

If the federal court releases the map of the congressional districts before midnight I will post it.

I am told something is to be uploaded to the internet today.  If I get it before midnight I will post it - otherwise all bets are off.

COURT OF APPEALS ORDER ANTONIO JUAREZ'S ATTORNEYS TO RESPOND TO MOTION FOR REHEARING

OKAY GUYS, BV STILL GOING DOWN ON FRIDAY - THE POST IS ALREADY DONE

The court has given Ben Neece and company until Friday to refute the claims being made by BISD in the Motion for Rehearing.  To remind my readers the Trustees are arguing that the court made a mistake about the factual allegations being made by Juarez.  They are arguing that since the court's ruling was based on a misstatement of allegations being made by Juarez the court should void its order/opinion.

http://www.docstoc.com/docs/103622705/JuarezRehearing001


And again - a pathological liar cannot change its stripes.  the court at no time ruled that any trustee was personally liable for anything - it never happened - it is just another lie being pushed by Presas-Garcia..

The court ruled that if a jury finds the allegations to  be true the trustees can be held liable.  The fact of the matter is, no factual allegation to date has been found to be true. 

PROCEDURE ON REHEARING

The court only sends out these letters if they see a basis to grant the rehearing.  The purpose of providing Antonio Juarez a chance to respond is to insure he has no basis to save the original opinion.

The mouth pieces for Presas-Garcia have already made it known they will immediately start a compaign of lies and deception.  It is sad that with all the people claiming to care not one will take up the battle.   If someone informs the BV by Friday that they are taking up the fight and the BV can verifiy they are in fact taking up the fight and they start a blog or web page the BV will post it for its readers.

I hate to say it, but Jim Barton has proven he will publish Ben Neece's lies so in the end Jim Barton will not be a reliable source.

THE PIE BOILED OVER AND
THE OVEN NEEDED CLEANING

I put a cookie sheet under the apple pie I made the other day. The apples must have been real juicy because the pie boiled over past the cookie sheet. I have a new counter level self cleaning oven. I had never used one of these before so I was skeptical.

Wow, three hours later it took all the burnt on pie juice and turned it to ashes - a quick wipe and the oven was clean - last night I made cookies

It is called a metaphor.

CAMERON COUNTY POLITICS -
PURE EVIL PLAIN AND SIMPLE

If you read my comments over the past week you would have seen the hints I knew the BISD meeting would be a bust. The evil in Cameron county politics at all levels is almost surreal.

GRAND JURY PERSON DISCLOSES SUBPOENAS SERVED ON VILLALOBOS AND DE LA GARZA

When I learned the above I reported it to the United States Attorney and Rosenthal's lawyers. It blew my mind that a source actually believed that they could tell me a grand jury person told them about the subpoenas and I would not report it. What part of no sacred cows do people not get. It is the evil in this town which makes this source think he and his friends are not accountable under the law. It sickens me.

MARY REY THREATENS
BV OVER SHUT DOWN

"Bobby,

If you close the BV, I will not do the rest of the deposition. Period!
Now, I am extremely disappointed at how Colunga allowed Lucy Longoria to shut him down, and how Cata did not allowed Peña the floor. Is this legal?
Cata was extremely nervous and called the deposition "innuendos and falsifications", but yet does not denied any of them.
I really wanted to send Minerva excerpts from a a conversation where Cata admits to her and Luci being entangled with Quintanilla...Do you want to hear at least that part before you think about closing? My phone number at home is ...-...., you already know the cell ...-...., but that's where it's stored that's why I am asking you to call me on the house ph."
 
 
Jesus, do people not get it - I do not play the con game - with anyone.
Mary Rey could not give a rats ass about BISD or its children.  So long as she thought she was going to get something from Quintanilla she was willing to turn a blind eye and play the game.  She is as much of a con artist as Quintanilla.
But that does not change key parts of her testimony - Quintanilla clearly lied about the lease.  Her testimony is enough for the DA to call the witnesses before a grand jury and force their testimony.  At this level her deposition remains important.
But guys there will be no part two.  Get it - con job - this evil woman will hold all of the BISD children hostage until she gets what she wants - I do not play Mary.  Honorable people do not cut deals, they just do the right thing - you my dear know nothing about honor which is why Quintanilla was able to reel you in with so little effort.

The DA and Texas Ethics Commission clearly have enough to convene an investigation.  I will bet the farm that 20 years from now Rick Zayas will be telling people he is going to send the deposition to the Texas Ethics Commission any day now.
Nothing but a lack of a moral compass prevents Rick Zayas from walking into the grand jury and demand they indict Quintanilla on two counts of felony perjury, and to open a full criminal investigation against these people under the election  code.  It is called a grand jury referral.  If he calls a press conference before he does it, I defy Villalobos to stop him.  Villalobos is already before a federal grand jury - let's add obstruction of justice on this issue to whatever they are already looking at.

But reality check - 20 years from no Rick Zayas will be telling people - any day now.  And they will make Joe Colunga their spokesman so he can mumble his way through the press release.

IT IS TIME FOR THE BV TO SHUT DOWN

In the Spring I shut down for a few hours.  Carlos Quintanilla did what he does bests - opens his mouth- he attacked Melissa Zamora on the Fly  Frontera deal.  Until that moment I had no knowledge of who was behind Fly Frontera and simply thought it was a good idea.  For years the BV has done articles calling for flights between Mexico and Brownsville.  Cheezmeh was simply wrong about the load factors and whether the service was needed.  But I knew if Quintanilla was attacking there was a con job at hand.

Had he simply not attacked Melissa the BV would have shut down and the BV never would have exposed the truth which eventually was used by many groups in Brownsville to kill the deal.

A couple of weeks ago I penned another post closing down the BV.   I then got a phone call telling me Mary Rey wanted to talk.  I never published the post.  Apparently she gave someone a recorded statement in April and that person sat on it.  Then the person who called me found out about it and tried to act on it.  I reached my limits with the BS and threatened to go with what little I knew.  I knew had I done nothing 20 years from now her handlers would be saying - tomorrow.

The handling of Mary Rey's deposition was as reckless and incompetent as the Zayas/Cortez reelection campaign.  I hate to tell you Mary but you put your life in the hands or people who will never win.  They have no skills on the issue or understand how you educate people.

A dead person could have done a better job than Joe Colunga did at the BISD board meeting.  Had I been on the other side I would have been on the floor laughing hysterically at his pathetic performance.  It has reached the point that Luci Longoria leaves Colunga in the dust in terms of speaking coherently.  Now that is truly pathetic.  Did the man actually say anything or was it all mindless mumbling.

BISD is in a free fall of incompetence and corruption.  My time is better spent helping families with special needs children.  The BV takes me away from that task.  Some days it may be as simple as referring them to the right doctor to get their child help.  Other days it may be sitting parents down and teaching them how to defend their child in ARD meetings. 

Brownsville does not have social workers who work for the poor to help them navigate city, county, state, and federal services.  There is a strong need for this in Brownsville.  There is not a week which goes by that someone does not call me to help them navigate the system.

I will put the hours I have to volunteer into these efforts. 

It is clear to me Brownsville is incapable of change.  It is a hell hole - the people opposing the current BISD majority are incompetent in addition to being clueless.  Mary Rey has been hung out to dry - given this real fact why would anyone else ever come forward. 

On Thursday and Friday I will post something - everything I have in drafts will be trashed.  They may be more social studies oriented.  Friday will be the BV's last post.  I will bet the farm no one will replace the BV - people will decry my decision while refusing to take action themselves - hence the real problem.



BISD MEETING - A CROCK

They are talking about removing Presas-Garcia - Presas-Garcia, Longoria are basically threatening Colunga to talk about what he has done wrong - Presas-Garcia did not deny the charges.

Arturo Michel is playing the sap.  He is attacking Mary Rey's deposition saying it is not proper.  Apparently she said Springston was fired.  He uses this one example to put her entire deposition into question.  All Presas-Garcia had to do was  deny the claims.  She denied nothing.  The fact remains it was a court order deposition and Arturo Michel's statements are reckless.  He knows it was a proper deposition under the rules.  His comments were a clear act of conspiracy to cover-up corruption.  Only Judge McDonald can order the deposition stricken.  The fact Michel never even mentioned it was under court order verifies he acted to conspire to protect Presas-Garcia.

It is for the court to declare the deposition improper and have it voided.  Nothing has prevented Arg Miller from appearing in the case and seeking the deposition of Mary Rey.  Their refusal to use the process to refute the testimony is clear evidence they cannot refute the claims of Mary Rey.

Michel stated it was a two hour deposition.  It was not - this is a lie.  It was actually a mistatement - but under Michel's standard of reasoning, which is unethical and bogus, we should ignore everything he said because of such a claring mistake on his part.  Michel proves he was hired because the majority needed a con-artist to do their bidding

Also law has a thing known as constructive discharge.  If a person is forced to resign from a job under pressure they can still receive unemployment benefits under the legal concept known as constructive discharge.  Michel being the unethical lawyer he is, chose to play games in order to keep fleecing BISD in the  form of attorneys fees.

Luci Longoria actually stated the depo had nothing to do with BISD.

Joe Colunga's presentation for removal of Presas-Garcia was pathetic.  The use of Mary Rey's deposition has been so misused it boggles my mind.  Like I said earlier today - if all they had was part one it would be a bust - it was.

It is probably time for everyone to move on - Mary Rey had her shot and her handlers bundled this with the same incompetency as the last BISD election.

CARL MONTOYA TO BE LONE FINALIST FOR SUPERINTENDENT

Again they had Michel defend their conduct - Colunga then changed his vote thereby leaving Aguilar and Peña hanging. He will be confirmed in 21 days. No teachers or parent groups will oppose what has happened.


HEALTHSMART

Escobedo was pushing something but it never came out. They voted down hiring counsel based on a contingency - this would have allowed the lawsuit to continue without costing BISD a penny. Healthsmart will be dismissed in short order - maybe the next hearing. The deal is done. The Mary Rey deposition will stop nothing. It is time people let it go - Colunga, Aguilar and Peña are guiltier of their breach of fiduciary duties than the other four. The sell out was from Colunga, Aguilar and Peña - the people need to remember this come November 2013 - and in fact in terms of their legacy.

Rick Zayas 20 years from now will be telling people he is about to do something - really people - time to fold - nothing will be done - let the board hang itself.
Texas House of Representatives

CARTER WILL FILE LEGISLATION TO PREVENT FRAUD IN SUMMER FOOD PROGRAMS print page

by: Rep. Carter, Stefani
08/23/2011
(AUSTIN, TX) - Representative Stefani Carter (Dallas) will file legislation next session to ensure the integrity of entities seeking funds from the government to operate summer food programs.

Yesterday, Dallas-Fort Worth's FOX News outlet ran a story detailing the fraudulent activities of a local man claiming to operate a summer food program. The man, a former ex-convict, reportedly received more than a million dollars since 2009 from the State of Texas to run two separate programs. However, after a short period, the programs began to deteriorate. The lunches served to the children were inadequate, and the programs appeared to be cut short, even though the man took state money. Now, authorities including the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) have launched an investigation to determine where the money went.

"Legislation is clearly needed to prevent an instance such as this from recurring," said Carter. "It is unacceptable for the State to distribute taxpayer dollars to anyone without knowing the criminal background of the recipient. At minimum, if an applicant has a conviction in theft or fraud from the past seven years, the application should be denied, and if an applicant steals our taxpayer dollars, he or she should also be forced to pay every single dollar back."

During the 82nd legislative session, Senator Jane Nelson (Flower Mound) passed legislation to allow TDA to conduct a criminal background history record check on entities seeking to obtain low-cost meals for child-care centers and child-care homes. If background investigations reveal specific criminal convictions, applications can be denied. While this was a positive move, the new law covers only child-care centers and child-care homes. It does not require criminal background checks for those operating summer food programs like the one currently being investigated.

"I intend to close this gap and ensure that those receiving funds for summer food programs have a background which demonstrates a high degree of ethics and superior business integrity,” said Carter. “These programs can play a vital role in our communities, and I will not allow the State of Texas to be taken advantage of and our resources squandered, especially in this economic downturn."

IS THE NEW SUPERINTENDENT
CARL MONTOYA?

Below is a great article I stole from Jim Barton's blog.

http://www.valleycentral.com/news/story.aspx?id=686546#.TsHhnlqfK5N.facebook

What is clear is after a walking quorum by the board majority they decided on someone and then had personnel post it as a job opening just long enough for the loan candidate (their puppet to apply).  They panicked after Carl Montoya's mess-up over the social security numbers. 

The real sad part is not the actions of the majority - but the actions of the minority.  If all Joe Colunga has as a weapon tonight is part one of Mary Rey's deposition he has a bust.  The depo by itself is out of context with a previous understanding of the story.  It is like trying to understand a book which you started to read after someone stole first 200 pages.

The walking quorum which was used to bring about the selection of whomever is the new superintendent is illegal.   But no one will file a lawsuit to stop it.  No one will file a lawsuit to enjoin the selection as an usurping of the power of the board.  This is what is very, very sad.

Unless they have something concrete and not a he said she said type thing in part two of Mary Rey's depo, tonight's school board meeting will be a bust for the minority.  And rightfully so - you cannot role over and play dead and then complain when you get hauled off to the compost heap of life.

Tonight's meeting is a defining moment for BISD - Mary Rey put herself out there - will the people respond by showing in large numbers?  If the teachers and parents fail to show in very, very large numbers then they will get what they deserve - nothing.  It will be sad if Mary Rey's depo ends up being for naught.
FELONS CARLOS QUINTANILLA AND BRUCE CARTER JOIN FORCES - THE BROWNSVILLE CONNECTION

NOTE ON THE HERALD:  If after reading this morning's Herald you still subscribe you are the problem with Brownsville.  No mention of the SS number mess - intentionally misleads about how long the hiring process was out there for superintendent, fails the mention that Carlos Quinanilla is a felon, fails to mention the two times he lied under oath, fails to mention how he lied about Mary Rey's address - and on and on and on.  You must cancel your hard copy subscription to the Herald or remain the problem with Brownsville.

Lets see if anyone is willing to correct the Herald and go on line and put the real story.

ORIGINAL POST

Apparently these two have learned there are federal and state grants to buy food to feed children. E-S Foods help people such as Quintanilla and Carter to get approved for the grants.  The food is then bought from E-S foods.  Carter has two organizations he uses for his feed the children - MAG and OSP.  Carlos Quintanilla has worked with Bruce Carter in both his organizations at MAG and OSP.  I do not know if he was involved with the problems in Brownsville.

http://www.esfoods.com/summer-afterschool/state-cacfp-contacts/  Is it any wonder our governments are broke.  This type nonsense invites abuse.  No background checks to see if they are felons.  What ever happened to working with true non-profits?
Bruce Carter is suing Fox News for its story which I reported yesterday.  The  document I am about to disclose comes from that lawsuit.  The lawsuit will be dismissed on December 9, 2011.  It is clear his attorney had zero knowledge of defamation law when it comes to the press. 

The Texas Department of Agriculture in a letter dated September 30, 2011 references numerous attempts by Bruce Carter's organization to seek reimbursement for meals not previously approved by the Texas Department of Agriculture, or for non-eligible children.  Without the taxpayers having to pay the salaries of the auditors at TDA, Bruce Carter would have been paid for meals never approved.

BROWNSVILLE IS PART OF
THE IMPROPER CLAIMS

Page 3. Non-Compliance No. 4.

OSP did not have approval  for 128 breakfasts, 324 lunches and 144 suppers served at the Brownsville Sports Park.  Who in the city approved this program with a convicted felon?

Page 3.  Non-Compliance No. 5

OSP sought reimbursement for meals allegedly given to non-qualifying children.  The meals were delivered to the Brownsville Sport's Park, and Brownsville Recreation Center. 

How is it that the city of Brownsville got itself involved with a convicted felon as its only way to feed children in need.  The programs are funded  through grants.  Brownsville can certainly set up its own real non-profit for such a program while getting church youth to donate their time as a community service to make this happen.  Why does money have to go to convicted felons to run these programs - the money needs to go to the children.

This program by the State of Texas Department of Agriculture is a joke in the context it has no real oversight.  We need to demand the law is changed to prevent convicted  felons from accessing the funds.  We need to demand that the grants are only given to true non-profits.

Nothing but a lack of interest prevents Brownsville's best from organizing a non-profit to access these funds for next summer so our children do not go hungry.  All of the money needs to go to the children, and not individuals using the system as a way to make money.

WHAT IS CLEAR IS, BRUCE CARTER - CARLOS QUINTANILLA'S BUDDY SUBMITTED UNAPPROVED CLAIMS TO TDA

The presumption is OSP's claims were not fraudulent and simply a mistake or misunderstanding of the process.

The TDA letter
http://www.docstoc.com/docs/103011857/OSP

BUT COMPARE TO
QUINTANILLA'S CONVICTION

“This case involves a scheme to defraud the G. Heileman Brewing Company through the submission of false funding proposals to the company's corporate sponsorship program. Carlos Quintanilla and Leticia Gutierrez, two participants in the scam, were convicted of conspiring to violate the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act ("RICO"), 18 U.S.C. Sec. 1962(c), and of transporting stolen property in interstate commerce, 18 U.S.C. Secs. 2 and 2314. In addition, Gutierrez was convicted of money laundering, 18 U.S.C. Sec. 1956(a)(1)(A) and (B)(i), conspiracy to defraud the IRS, 18 U.S.C. Secs. 2 and 371, and failure to file income tax returns, 26 U.S.C. Sec. 7203.

ACCION AMERICAN ALIGNED ITSELF WITH WAG TO FEED THESE SO CALLED CHILDREN - I'M SHOCKED THEY ARE NOW UNDER FEDERAL INVESTIGATION -
THE PERSON IN CHARGE OF WAG -
ANOTHER CONVICTED  FELON

The embed is incomplete so  I can only give you the link to watch the report

http://www.myfoxdfw.com/dpp/news/investigative/082211-investigation%3A-summer-food-program

If you watch the entire story, they have already played this con in Brownsville. 

LEADERS LEAD,
MORONS AND CRIMINALS DISTRACT

UPDATE: Apparently they have lost control of Quintanilla again.  His latest post is simply bizarre.  As is almost always the case with Quintanilla, he makes a post and as part of his out of control response he makes anonymous posts.  The timer on his blog is set 2 hours back - his post was at 7:37 with anony posts at 7:42, 7:44, 7:45.

Here is a reality check on his lies.  A court reporter is not a notary.  Her identification will appear on the official transcript and official video.  She does not have to appear on tape. 

Now if someone like Quintanilla wants a non-judicial video tape of his sworn testimony he can have a notary - not court reporter - swear him in.  The notary would have to identify himself on tape to make it credible. 

Carlito complains that the PAC was not notified of the lawsuit.  Wrong - only the president is sued.  If the president chooses to not notify the other PAC members that is her decision.  Hey Carlito remember when Accion America got sued and you lied under oath about the other owners who were never informed about the suit?

ORIGINAL POST

Pictured is Carlos Quintanilla, Enrique Escobedo, and Pat Lehmann - not seen but also there is Rodrigo Moreno. Rodrigo Moreno is part of this - does this explain Erasmo Castro's near dead silence on the issue?

What I know for sure is they are desperate. Someone has finally told Quintanilla to shut up- he has taken down posts - edited posts - removed comments. Quintanilla never would have done this unless he was read the riot act.  He now posts approved propaganda which when checked with the Dallas Morning News archives cannot be verified.

Juanito is beyond desperate - he knows every attorney he asked about a discovery lawsuit told him nothing was done wrong with how Mary Rey's deposition was done. These discovery lawsuits were created for exactly this type case. You have witnesses who want the protection of the court before they speak. This is exactly what happened in this case. It tells you something about the legal knowledge of whomever is advising them - it took them nearly a week to figure out what happened. A first year law student could have told them in a few minutes.

You do not need a court proceeding to give sworn testimony.  They can simply put one person after another before a camera and have a notary swear them in.  It is not a legal deposition, but it is sworn testimony.  They cannot seem to do this.  Of course the notary would have to identify themselves on tape for it to be valid.

Here is the bottom line - they fear what Mary Rey has in her recordings - this is why Quintanilla, Montoya, Neece, Lehmann, Longoria, Escobedo, Presas-Garcia and Saavedra will not sign an affidavit refuting any of Mary Rey's testimony. Their sole response is to attack her as a mother, and claim she is lying over money. In a court room their claims would never make it to a jury. The only thing which will make it to the jury is sworn testimony.

The fact they have presented no sworn testimony is some evidence Mary is telling the truth. They fear the legal consequences of even more perjury. It is not complex - Quintanilla stated he has a signed lease with Mary Rey's name on it - post it to the internet - plain and simple.

Plain and simple - go statement by statement made by Mary Rey and in an affidavit deny it. In terms of the conversations Quintanilla had with Luci Longoria - if they both sign affidavits denying Mary Rey's statements people will believe them. They have not presented these affidavits because they cannot.  They are in absolute fear of what is in her recordings.

Carlito wants Judge McDonald to know that he attended a better law school than Judge McDonald.  He wants Judge McDonald to know the law school of a federal prison library surpasses any law school Judge McDowell attended.  Carlos Quintanilla wants Judge McDonald to know it is illegal for parties to waive the rules or agree to depositions. 

Could any individual be more ignorant than Carlos Quintanilla?

WHO REALLY FED THOSE 100,000 CHILDREN?

E-S FOODS FED THE CHILDREN - BUT NO MENTION OF THE TRUE SOURCE OF THE FOOD IN ANY OF QUINTANILLA'S PROPAGANDA

http://www.esfoods.com/summer-afterschool/summer-es-foods-can-help/

Quintanilla handed out food to children and had people take pictures of same for his propaganda machine.  But his organization is not a non-profit.  No corporation is going to donate the money for food  for such a project without the benefit of a tax write off.  They are not going to donate money or food knowing full well Quintanilla is a non-corporation DBA one man profit machine.  What Quintanilla does not tell you is, who paid for the  food.  It certainly was not his organization. -   Even on his web page he does not tell you who donated the money for the food.   Why?  because then you will learn the truth - his organization's role was to pass out the lunches - exactly who else helped?  Who paid for or donated the food.

CARLITO - A WORD ABOUT CHARITY

Honorable people do not create web pages to themselves to list everything they do every day for the community.  This is the action of a con artist looking for attention and money.  All over Brownsville there are silent heroes working tirelessly to protect children and feed them.  These are honorable people not engaged in endless self promotion.  You do not get it because all you know is the path of a con artist.  These people such as myself understand just how unseemly your conduct of self promotion really is.   It is dishonorable.

Go to the Dallas Morning News Archives

http://www.dallasnews.com/archive/

Do a search for Accion America - I cannot find any article wherein this organization is credited with feeding 100,000 children - His organization is not a non-profit - why?  they must follow strict accounting practices - Quintanilla would never be able to follow strict accounting practices.

Are we to believe the Dallas Morning News declared as not newsworthy the fact Accion America feed 100,000 children?  With Quintanilla every story will have an ounce of truth - and a ton of stealing credit and self promotion based in lies.

BROWNSVILLE SPECIAL NEEDS

Twice I have forced BISD to change its policies towards special needs children via TEA orders.  Just this past week I got BISD to fix its problems related to mentally ill special needs children through an informal mediation.  In the weeks to come the TEA will be issuing major findings against BISD for no better reason that Carl Montoya refuses to mediate the problem in good faith.  Each of these acts for special needs children had a positive impact on all BISD special needs children, and not just the families I helped.  The TEA orders were directed towards district wide training and rewriting of manuals.

Carlos Quintanilla used the special needs children of Brownsville as cover for his enterprise of public corruption.  He delivered nothing for any the children.  He did not so much as make arrangements for one child to get a proper diagnoses after declaring hundreds of children were misdiagnosed.

It is always the same with Carlos Quintanilla - he uses children as a front for his real agenda of public corruption and self promotion.  He defends Rendon family who runs a beer shop which forces its female employees to wear hot pants so as to be able to sell more beer to perverted men looking to get off on these victimized young ladies.  He defends Rendon even after the TEA at my request issued findings against Rendon's Special Services Department, not once but twice..

Quintanilla's propaganda war is at its end.  He really believes the people will ignore sworn testimony and his lies under oath.  He really believes that people will believe his propaganda in face of the uncontroverted fact that at least twice he lied under oath.  If he will lie under oath knowing he can go to prison for his lies, why would anyone expect him to tell the truth when he is not under oath?

I HAVE NO IDEA IF MARY REY'S DEPO WILL HOLD UP

I do know the PAC has yet to refute one allegation by Mary Rey while the person is under oath.  If it is true that the part two of the depo will take Presas-Garcia down, no amount of propaganda by Quintanilla will save him.  His need to run to propaganda is proof positive he cannot refute Mary Rey's testimony.  His propaganda is proof positive Mary Rey's testimony is trustworthy.

But, if what ever is in part two of her depo fails to produce an end to the BISD majority come Tuesday night Mary Rey's depo will have been for naught.  Other than weighting for law enforcement to issue indictment[s] there is no reason to withhold part two.  In fact publishing part two now could be what finally gets parents to show up in large numbers and demand resignations.  If the parents do fail to show on Tuesday night, again Mary Rey's deposition will have been for naught.

What Zayas failed to understand during the campaign and continues to fail to understand is the Herald has a news black out on the issue.  Think about it even a news black out on the release of the social security numbers.  Daniel Cavasos decided it would cause damage to Carl Montoya and declared it not newsworthy.  The Mary Rey depo should have included a major push in mailers or flyers to educate the public of its existence.  For all practical purposes only a couple of thousand people know what is happening.  It was like a tree falling in the woods with no one around to hear it.

GRANDMA GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER

This song became more real the day I met the author of the lyrics. Randy Brooks is the bother in law of my ex. When you meet Randy he is just like the song. He still loves his music. He is as funny as the song.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Grandma_Got_Run_Over_by_a_Reindeer

BAKE - BAKE - BAKE - 'TIS THE SEASON

The holidays are coming - time to bake. For Halloween we had pumpkin bread. Last night I made a fresh apple pie. They are easy to make - the only thing a lot of people do not know is - pies tend to boil over. I always put the pie on the top rack and then something on the bottom rack to catch the juice as it boils over.

WHAT'S FOR DINNER TONIGHT?

I will simmer a 2 pound pork roast in a homemade dried red pepper sauce.  It will tear apart like butter.  I will serve it with corn tortillas and pico de gallo sauce.  Rice will be on the side.  If I can find some ripe platano machos they will make a nice side dish with Oaxacan cheese.

ELIZABETH ANN JOHNSON CONTINUES CAMPAIGN OF LIES AND DECEPTION

It is almost guaranteed that this woman will lie and deceive. She is no better than Carlos Quintanilla. She has given me so many unverifiable lies she is simply not credible. She is as stupid as Quintanilla - she thinks she call tell me things and I will not check them out.

From Elizabeth Ann Johnson:

"The settlement with Rendon is in danger ACE still has not paid. They have read you blog. The second sentence should not be used in a post."  

Now, I cannot speak to the issue or problems - but I can say the following is in a pleading filed with the court signed off on by Rendon's and ACE insurance lawyers who represent BISD.  Dated Nov. 10th.

"Plaintiff has this day received settlement funds."

I have made it clear to this dimwit Elizabeth Ann Johnson I will not play her games.  She is another outsider trying to play the process to the advantage of her side.  This does not serve the children. She needs to stay in Oklahoma because as we all know the reason why Texas does not fall off into the gulf is because Oklahoma sucks.


ANOTHER ONE BITES THE DUST -
MONTOYA GONE -
ESCOBEDO PANICS TO SAVE CASH COW

With two TEA complaints certified for abuse of mentally ill children and the failure to timely notify BISD employees their social security numbers were released to the internet, the demise of Carl Montoya was inevitable.

The shock is in Escobedo's panic with an illegal attempt to hire a superintendent without consultation with the rest of the board.  Of course it was not Escobedo who posted the opening it was Carl Montoya.

Here is the problem in simple terms - Carl Montoya or Sylvia Atkinson usurped the power of the Board by posting the job for superintendent and then limiting the application time to a few hours.  This is a matter for the Board.  The Board must direct the superintendent on the hiring of a new superintendent, not the other way around. 

The following is from the Texas Education Code

Superintendents

§ 11.201 (D) (2) assuming administrative authority and responsibility for the assignment and evaluation of all personnel of the district other than the superintendent;

(3) making recommendations regarding the selection of personnel of the district other than the superintendent, as provided by Section 11.163;

§ 11.163. EMPLOYMENT POLICY.

(a) The board of trustees of each independent school district shall adopt a policy providing for the employment and duties of district personnel. The employment policy must provide that:

(1) the superintendent has sole authority to make recommendations to the board regarding the selection of all personnel other than the superintendent, except that the board may delegate final authority for those decisions to the superintendent; and

(d) The employment policy must provide that not later than the 10th school day before the date on which a district fills a vacant position for which a certificate or license is required as provided by Section 21.003, other than a position that affects the safety and security of students as determined by the board of trustees, the district must provide to each current district employee: (1) notice of the position by posting the position on: (A) a bulletin board at: (i) a place convenient to the public in the district's central administrative office; and (ii) the central administrative office of each campus in the district during any time the office is open; and (B) the district's Internet website, if the district has a website; and (2) a reasonable opportunity

COLUNGA, AGUILAR AND PEÑA MUSH SEEK A TRO TO STOP THIS CONSPIRACY TO VIOLATE THE TEXAS EDUCATION CODE BY ESCOBEDO AND CARL MONTOYA

Then the Board needs to outright fire Carl Montoya for usurping the power of the Board.  They must also outright fire the sole candidate who is obviously also part of this conspiracy.  But I know Colunga, Aguilar and Peña, they will just complain but not take action,
J. Edgar (2011) Poster

J. EDGAR HOOVER -
A STUDY IN POWER AND POLITICS

I was not going to see this film because I assumed it was just going to be a director taking excessive license with the known facts. Had the director been Oliver Stone I definitely would have stayed away. But the director was Clint Eastwood so I decided to see what he could do with this type film

Clint clearly took some license with the facts. While there is substantial evidence J. Edgar was gay and had a long term lover, it has never been proven. The film played on this a lot more than I would have liked.

But then I thought maybe it was necessary to show why he was the way he was. There is no official diagnosis of "Closet Syndrome." I have worked with a lot of married men who were gay and in the closet - mostly in divorces. Over time I noticed a clear pattern - closeted gay men and women tend to have problems with right from wrong. I think this contributes to child molestation, for one - priests.

But even if they are not child molesters they lose the ability to discern right from wrong. Their mind cannot deal with years of denial - in time they simply snap and lose any moral compass they may have had.

You clearly see this in J. Edgar's character. J Edgar was known for seeing the need for greater law enforcement. He did push the issue and bring about better law enforcement. He quickly learned to get what he wanted he had to learn to blackmail elected officials. The blackmail came easy to him because he clearly had no moral compass.

I like the contrast to his possible lover because he was more open about being gay. He also was bothered by some of J. Edgar's actions. He did not suffer from the "closet syndrome."

If you go watch the film get beyond the gay side show - focus in on how he learned to play the system to get what he wanted.

It is Cameron county politics. Nothing in this town gets done because everyone is dirty and every other politician knows that their peers are corrupt. They know if they stand up and denounce the BISD Board for example, some of the Board members my decide it is time to reveal the secrets of the elected official who denounced them.

J. Edgar's conduct was innovative for its time - but today is is business - it is the art of survival.

The good news is the FBI has now assigned an entire team to deal with nothing but corruption in Cameron county. The good news is Villalobos and de la Garza have both hired criminal defense attorneys after getting hit with subpoenas. (Lawyers in Cameron county are worse than Peyton Place - they cannot hold their tongues.)

If you can handle two hours of a film which is really a lesson in modern politics you will enjoy this film. If critical thinking bores you - go see Jack and Jill. I am not mocking Jack and Jill - Adam Sandler always delivers.

WHAT IS UP WITH SCHOOL BOARD MEETING?

The agenda was not posted until 6:15 p.m.

On superintendent, the position was posted today November 11, 2011, and closed to one internal applicant.

http://www.bisd.us/employment/Default.asp

Enrique Escobedo knew that the BV's stories against Carl Montoya meant his end - so today he had posted an opening for Superintendent and then closed it after one applicant applied.  Where was there a review by anyone - teachers, parents, administrators - nothing.

There are lawyers a dime a dozen who can end this come Monday morning.  The attorneys in Brownsville with money are all like Tony Martinez  - it is about making money by not rocking the boat.  This is a major tragedy about to happen.  Some attorney needs to file for an immediate injunction based on violation of Board policy and for a walking quorum.  There is no way Escobedo made such a bold move without full knowledge that the four would vote as a unit.  The sole applicant needs to be indicted as part of this conspiracy.  It is not about winning, it is about sending a message.  Escobedo knows its is over with - his cash cow is dead - he is holding on to what ever control he can still get.

COLUNGA, PEÑA AND AGUILAR MUST MAKE AN IMMEDIATE DEMAND TO PERSONNEL TO LEARN WHAT TIME THE POST FOR SUPERINTENDENT WAS MADE

BROWNSVILLE - YOU MUST ATTEND TUESDAY'S MEETING AND END THIS NOW

The rumor is Cata Presas-Garcia may not make it to the meeting - she may be detained elsewhere before the meeting begins.  Sources have her in a free fall panic.

A source at the movies told me a request for an emergency master went to the TEA today.  I can only hope the source is telling me the truth.

THE AGENDA
8. Discussion, consideration, and possible action regarding amendments to BISD agreement with Forensic Auditor.
(Board Member Request – JC)
9. Discussion, consideration, and possible action regarding Board Reorganization-President. (Board Member Request – JC)

CARL MONTOYA DEMANDS A SECOND CHANCE AFTER THE TEA OPENS SECOND INVESTIGATION

ADDED NOTE FROM A READER:  ARE YOU READING THIS TRUSTEES?

When the State of Texas Comptroller's Office accidentally posted Social Security Numbers and personal information of some 3.5 million people on a publicly accessible State computer server, the Texas Attorney General's Office and the FBI lauched criminal investigations. The State set up the website TXsafeguard.org, a toll free line and offered all 3.5 million affected by the data breach one year of free credit monitoring through CSIdenity. Why does BISD Administration think we are owed less???? http://www.dallasnews.com/news/state/headlines/20110411-breach-in-texas-comptrollers-office-exposes-3.5-million-social-security-numbers-birth-dates.ece"

ORIGINAL POST

The TEA has opened two investigations for abuse of mentally ill children by BISD.  The first is the second time BISD has been hit with an investigation by the same child.  This was an important investigation because it showed the TEA that BISD ignores their findings on go on their merry way.

In this case the father just dismissed the complaint, not because of no wrongdoing - the wrongdoing was extensive, but because of the professional response given to him by the principal.  She made it clear from the moment we sat down in an unofficial mediation that the goal was to fix the problems.

What we learned was the file teachers are expected to review every folder of every child front to back.  This is an impossible task.  It is a task meant to fail.  It did - The file teachers were unaware of all the medical records on this child's mental health problems.  When you see these files you can understand how it is BISD is dropping the ball.  As a possible solution it was agreed in the case of the mental health children the files will be flagged that they contain important medical records which must be reviewed by the file teacher on a regular basis.

Another thing we learned was BISD does not have a policy which requires the attendance officers to check the IEP's for accommodation before they refer the child for truancy proceedings.  This was a big  concern of the TEA.  The principal assured the father that the matter has been  corrected at the campus level and that the matter will be addressed with the AA so that it can be corrected at the district level.

At every moment this principal and her staff were 100% professional and focused on correcting the mistakes and making life better for the child.  Based on the principal's professional conduct the father informed the TEA that based on an informal mediation and the extraordinary professionalism of the principal and her staff the complaint was being withdrawn.

THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN WITH THE SECOND COMPLAINT

When the father learned of the abusive conduct at Stell middle school towards his mentally disabled child he went to go see the principal.  I was there.  The principal approached the father as if the principal was some punk ass kid and only made matters worse.  Luis Segura's conduct was immediately reported to Carl Montoya and Arturo Michel.  Carl  Montoya ran cover for Luis Segura.  Now that the TEA has ordered BISD to explain their conduct Luis Segura and Carl Montoya are begging for forgiveness.  The TEA will finish this one.

We have the documents which show since September the father has been demanding a special ARD for his daughter based on a significant mental health diagnosis.  The counselor, Ms. Davis dropped the ball and a mess followed.  We have the document signed in September by the father authorizing BISD to secure the child's medical records from the pediatric psychiatrist.  The request for the release was provided to the father by Ms. Davis.  Phone records will show endless calls to and from Stell concerning issues with this child.  There was nothing this father could do to get BISD to provide this child a special ARD.  The father can prove through phone records that after he had a bad conversation with Ms. Davis all communication with the father ended.  BISD records will show the father has attended the annual ARDS and handled all issues with BISD,.

The principal then ordered a Manifestation Determination ARD to determine if the child could be removed to BAC.  All along Stell would not provide the child an ARD to have the IEP modified to include the mental health diagnosis.  Without an IEP which included the mental health diagnosis BISD found the child could be removed.

BISD LIES ABOUT COURT ORDERS

BISD routinely requires custody orders before it will work with the non-custodial parent.  The parents have JMC which means both parents have equal rights over the child's education.   Before BISD would work with the father they required he produce the JMC custody order.  That order has been in the child's  folder for years.

When the father demanded that the principal explain why he was not notified about the Manifestation Determination ARD, Luis Segura with the professionalism of a punk ass kid pull a protective order out of the child's folder and waived it in the father's face.  The father demanded a copy.  Upon looking at the copy I saw that the protective order was against some kid at Hanna who had threaten one of his daughters.

This information was immediately provided to Carl Montoya and Arturo Michel with a demand Luis Segura be removed from Stell.  The father also wants Ms. Davis removed.  Carl Montoya and Luis Segura basically dismissed the father's demands.

Now they receive notice the TEA has opened an investigation and they are on the phone begging the father for forgiveness.  Carl Montoya and Luis Segura should not be in education.  The father has spoken with the TEA about amending the complaint to include the bogus protective order and the documents which show Ms. Davis was made aware of the child's mental health problems back in September and did nothing to secure the special ARD to have the child's IEP amended.

Carl Montoya knew the facts about the bogus protective order and chose to run cover for Luis Segura.  Now there is an investigation and he wants to talk - too late Carl.

With every day BISD fails to remove the child from BAC things will only get worse.  With every day Luis Segura and Ms. Davis remain at Stell everything will get worse.  Carl Montoya is so bad he is begging the father to work things out at the same time he has the child being forced into court over what happened.  Carl Montoya has no conscience.

The father's demands which are going to Carl Montoya and Arturo Michel are simple:

Luis Segura is immediately removed from Stell

Ms. Davis is immediately removed from Stell

The child is returned to Stell immediately

BISD drops the criminal charges against the child

A full criminal investigation into who removed the custody order from his child's file.

With every day BISD refuses to convene a proper ARD to include the mental health problems, BISD will be digging its hole deeper with the TEA.  The ARD needs to go forward immediately regardless of the pending TEA complaint.  A proper ARD will not get the complaint dismissed.  To have the complaint dismissed, in addition to the proper ARD and his child getting the help the child needs, the father needs to know all of the children are protected against the incompetence and unprofessional conduct of Luis Segura and Ms. Davis.

CARL MONTOYA "I ONLY ACT WHEN I AM CAUGHT"

He failed the children at Stell by refusing to remove Luis Segura upon learning of the bogus custody order - but it took him two seconds to remove Acacia Ameel from VMHS because her students, not her, staged a protest at BISD.  Carl Montoya is nothing more than Presas- Garcia little puppet.

He failed BISD employees until I forced him to notify them that their social security numbers were posted on the internet.  Rather than take responsibility for his failures, he blames previous administrators.  No Carl, it was you and Judy Cuellar who knew about what happened and chose to not tell BISD employees until the BV forced your hand.

CARL MONTOYA MUST BE REMOVED ON TUESDAY AS THE INTERIM SUPER

BLAME MY MOMMY FOR ME BEING A CONVICTED FELON, AND PURE EVIL

These are the words of a coward.  But these are Carlos Quintanilla's words, if we are to believe you blame the mother for the acts of her adult children.  This is exactly what he did.  If we are  to use Carlos Quintanilla's standard his mother is responsible for him being a convicted felon, con artist, being held in contempt repeatedly to get him to pay his child support, being on the receiving end of endless judgments after conning people out of their money, or for not paying his bills after services were rendered.

We can presume his mother was as pure as the driven snow and he would still be who he is.  He is pure evil or a sociopath.  Only a psychiatrist call tell us which.  Only pure evil or a sociopath would blame a mother for the decisions of her adult sons. 

I own my life - my decisions have been mine - and no one elses.  Hey Carlito this is called taking responsibility for your life. 

All of your con jobs and criminal conduct are on you Carlito - not your mother.

All of Mary Rey adult children's actions are on them and not Mary Rey

If you are going to blame Mary Rey for the actions of her adult children,  then you need to blame your mother for your criminal conduct.

GOOD NEWS

Carlos seems to be going over the edge.  His latest tirade shows he is not getting the support he wants from his compadres in Brownsville

Quintanilla claims Freedom Communication kicked my ass in court - now the facts

Here is a list of vexatious litigants in Texas - my name is not there

www.courts.state.tx.us/oca/vexatious_litigants.pdf

It cost the Herald some 30-40 thousand dollars in attorneys fees to defend the bogus ad placed by Quintanilla and Montoya.  It cost me zero in attorneys  fees.  Rick Zayas was in court as a witness and not as my attorney.  Anyone can check the court records to see he never appeared as my counsel.  Freedoms lawyers were so angry over not getting what they wanted, after the hearing one of them threatened both me and Rick Zayas.

tTe Depo clearly shows that Ben Neece was one of the bogus organizers of this PAC.  The Texas Commission on Judicial Conduct is already investigating him for his role in this election.  They are also looking at my claim he retaliated by having Montoya print the lies about Zayas being my counsel.  Quintanilla's latest words and his ties to Ben Neece prove Ben Neece instead of using Montoya to continue with the retaliation is now using Quitanilla.  The depo and Quitanilla's latest meltdown are going to the Commission as further evidence of retaliation for me filing a complaint against Ben Neece.

The Complaint

http://www.docstoc.com/docs/74667895/ComplaintPDF

QUINTANILLA AGAIN CLAIMS I HAVE A MORPHINE PROBLEM

In March I had a procedure to diagnose a tear in the tissue around the spine.  It is a very, very painful procedure.  This is the one and only time I have ever been prescribed morphine to deal with pain.  My body does not react to morphine or any painkiller.  I wrote about this.  My post made clear I was not taking the full dosage and at times not taking it at all because it does not work and would keep me awake, when sleep is what I needed to deal with the pain.

http://brownsvillevoice.blogspot.com/2011/03/today-is-sleep-day-although-i-am.html

Now when I say prescribed that does not include the painkillers they gave me after the gallbladder surgery.  The morphine did not work.  I screamed on and off for six hours before the pain was tolerable.  Why?  pain killers do not work on me.

The above shows Quintanilla is desperate - no one seems to be coming to his defense.

ARG MILLER - A LIAR TO NOT BE TRUSTED

Berta Peña will verify for the Texas Ethics Commission that when she called Arg Miller to tell her I pointed out she failed to file finance reports, Arg Miller told Ms. Peña that they were filed electronically with the TEC.   The lawyer I worked with on the issue at the TEC remembers when she searched their records for the missing filings.  She could not find them.  Arg Miller lied to Berta Peña - the question now becomes will Berta Peña be fired for being a witness  to Arg Miller's lies

VETERANS DAY - ANOTHER CON HOLIDAY TO BENEFIT POLITICIANS

As Americans we need to be grateful for the sacrifices of our veterans - but I would go one step further and include law enforcement. Here in the Valley we have both federal, state and local law enforcement on the front lines of a war with the Mexican cartel. Let's not forget their sacrifices.

Let's not forget Jaime Zapata and his family.

But on balance I hate this holiday because it is used by politicians to get votes - they cannot give veterans or those who died in service to this country one day where they are not using us to get votes.

HERE IS A GOOD READ FOR NON-MORONS

The BV tries it best to allow its readers to read original material.

Here is the article about what is happening with BISD's credit rating.  It remains at AA - this is key - what is clear in this report is Brownsville has strong factors to keep it at AA.

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/fitch-affirms-brownsville-isd-txs-ults-at-aa-outlook-revised-to-negative-2011-11-03

Construction is only one of many factors which has caused BISD to dip into its surplus - just one of many.

BUT HERE IS THE SCOOP

Presas-Garcia, Saavedra, Longoria, felon Quintanilla and convicted drunk Montoya would prefer that your children be in overcrowded classrooms where they fail.  Leaders build schools when money is cheap and somewhat free as to a lot of it.  Morons like Presas-Garcia, Saavedra, Longoria, felon Quintanilla and convicted drunk Montoya say - do not built - it is better that the children fail in overcrowded schools.

NO STAMP WITHOUT CONSTRUCTION

These same dishonest ignorant people now want to use Veteran's Memorial High School for the STAMP program - they tell Brownsville Hanna and Porter are overcrowded and they need VMHS - but then condemn the previous board for having the foresight to have built it to begin with.  Had the previous board not built VMHS, what would the current board now be doing about overcrowding at Hanna and Porter?  NOTHING

LEADERS LEAD - MORONS AND CRIMINALS DISTRACT

CARL MONTOYA CONFESSES AFTER CONVICTION -
CONVICTED FELON CARLOS QUINTANILLA DEFENDS CARL MONTOYA FOR FAILING TO TIMELY NOTICE BISD EMPLOYEES THAT THEIR SS NUMBERS WERE DISCLOSED

FROM A READER

You will note in Carl Montoya's release to BISD employees he seeks to put the blame for him not notifying the employees of the breach on previous department administration.

How can Carl Montoya teach our children about accountability when he himself seeks to avoid it?

"BISD Confirms BV Story: Attention BISD Employees On Monday, November 7, 2011, Brownsville ISD was advised that the Social Security numbers of employees who are enrolled for disability insurance were inadvertently posted by prior department administration in April 2011 on the Employee Benefits/Risk Management (EB/RM) website; a site accessible to the public. Once notified, the information was immediately removed. The information posted contained the employee name, estimated monthly salary, selected disability plan, disability premium, and employee ID number. Although this does not violate HIPPA regulations, the district understands the importance of safeguarding personal information and sincerely apologizes for this oversight. BISD is working closely with its EB/RM staff to ensure that sensitive data is more securely maintained. District employees who are impacted will be contacted individually by the Employee Benefits/Risk Management Department. The district encourages all impacted employees to be proactive by closely monitoring their credit reports. BISD employees may also call (956) 548-8061 for more information. Any additional information and/or updates related to this issue will be posted on the BISD homepage"

It should shock no one that the only person to come to Carl Montoya's defense is convicted felon Carlos Quintanilla.  If the unions fail to have their counsel investigate this matter and force BISD to pay for Identity Theft monitoring, then the employees need to dump their union.

Anything less than Montoya's dismissal on Tuesday is unacceptable.

FACTS MATTER

Carl Montoya kept this from BISD employees until he was convicted on the evidence.  Then and only then did he meet his legal obligations to the BISD employees.  Had Springston done something like this Presas-Garcia would have called a special board meeting to fire him. 

FIRE MONTOYA NOW

Friday - Part Two  - Montoya begs for mercy in second conviction of incompetence - not going to happen

BUT IT IS A HIPAA VIOLATION IF WE LEARN ABOUT IT

AN ANSWER TO AN IMPORTANT QUESTION:

Someone asked how do they find out if their information was released?  If you have a union rep it is best you try and get the union to take the lead for everyone.  If not you need to send Carl Montoya an email demanding that he tell you if your name was on the list and specifically what information was released.

UPDATE:

The Texas web page on HIPAA clearly defines school districts like BISD as cover.  But fortunately  for the Teachers - Texas law goes even further and leaves no doubt.

http://www.law.uh.edu/healthlaw/perspectives/privacy/010830texas.html

BUT THE REAL CONCERN IS - WHY DID CARL MONTOYA NOT TELL THE EMPLOYEES THEIR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS WERE POSTED TO THE INTERNET?
ORIGINAL POST

On BISD's web page were the names, social security numbers, insurance information  and names of people out on disability until BISD was told by a source to take it down.

Before people start thinking lawsuit, there is no private cause of action for HIPAA violations.  Texas may have a law, but I do not know.

http://www.ama-assn.org/ama/pub/physician-resources/solutions-managing-your-practice/coding-billing-insurance/hipaahealth-insurance-portability-accountability-act/hipaa-violations-enforcement.page

Carl Montoya has known that BISD employee social security numbers -  meaning some 800-900 BISD employees - were posted on BISD's web page for every convicted felon to access  for personal use.  Carl Montoya chose to not immediately inform BISD employees that the release of their social security numbers could have allowed criminals or criminal wannabees to steal their identity.  How many BISD employees have already had credit taken out in their name because Carl Montoya chose to sit on this information.

BISD must remove Carl Montoya immediately - this Board certainly cannot expect the BISD employees or community to trust in Carl Montoya.

Before going with this story I checked out the source.  I have not seen any names or social security numbers - but the source is solid - let's see how Montoya reacts - does he tell his employees the truth or does he force the question.


The link was on this page

http://www.bisd.us/employee_benefits_Risk_mgmt/html/2011_EBCVol_prod_Packeges.html

Under disabilities there was another link DisabilitiesMembersList - it has since been removed

Judy Cuellar as the Administrator must be removed today.  BISD's failure to take immediate action against Carl Montoya for failing to inform BISD employees their social security numbers and information related to their disability has been  compromised is certainly a basis for discharge.

This happened under Judy Cuellar's watch - BISD is looking at some major sanctions if the employees file a  complaint.  BISD has a duty to mediate this matter by removing from BISD Carl Montoya and Judy Cuellar

BISD'S EMPLOYEES MUST PACK TUESDAY'S MEETING AND DEMAND REMOVAL OF CARL MONTOYA AND JUDY CUELLAR

MARY REY LIES "I HAVE A LEASE SIGNED BY MARY REY"  CARLITO DECLARES

It took Carlito more than 24 hours to tell people Mary Rey signed a lease to allow him to live in her house..  Riddle me this Carlito - why then in the Zayas deposition did you say the lease was with Mama Perez?  Just asking Carlito - the BV will consider all sworn to evidence and allow its readers to decide.
