Wall to represent parents

Editor, Everyone agrees that Judy Eppler is a knowledgeable, dedicated, experienced and respected educator, including her service on the Mariposa County Unified School District Board of Trustees. However, check out the present trustees and their backgrounds: four out of the five district represented are retired educators. They are all very capable trustees. Nonetheless, it is obvious that parental input and […]

Eppler’s experience crucial for district

Editor, I strongly urge you to vote for Judy Eppler for District 3 School Board member on November’s ballot. Judy has been a consistent and knowledgeable addition to the MCUSD School Board for the past seven years. In addition to her excellent service on the board, Judy carries more than 40-plus years of experience supporting Mariposa County public schools. Judy […]

Wall breath of fresh air

Editor, Honesty, dedication and commitment. Those are the things that Christy Wall strives for. Those are the things that she will continue to do as our District 3 School Board member. She has the knowledge, education, experience and passion that we admire as not only a voice for our children and grandchildren, but as a friend to all. She presents […]

Eppler has the knowledge

Editor, I am writing in support of Judy Eppler for the Mariposa County Unified School District Board of Trustees. In the scope of California education and the funding for education, there have been more changes in the past four years than any time over the past 20 years. The effects to programs and funding have had great impact. Having knowledge […]

Eppler best for seat on school board

Editor, As a former Mariposa teacher and current school board member, I have known Judy Eppler for 30 years. Mariposa is fortunate to have had her expertise on the school board for the past seven years because not only has she worked as a teacher, principal, and district administrator, she currently works as an educational consultant for the Fresno County […]

Measure M needs passed

Editor, I attended the debate hosted by AAUW last week. I believe there were some obvious points made in favor of passing Measure M. The opponents of the measure seemed to weigh heavily on the perceived detriment to their industry only. The supporters of the measure spoke about the entire community and what services we would all benefit by having […]

Measure M is right for Mariposa County

Editor, Why I am voting for Measure M to raise the TOT by 2 percent? The 2 percent increase in TOT could bring in as much as $3 million to the county. That money will go toward increasing the abilities of the sheriff’s office to protect us, better roads and fire prevention. This increase will benefit everyone in the county […]

McClintock view wrong

Editor, I listened with shock during the Morse/ McClintock debate as Tom McClintock bemoaned the good old days and stated that schools were better off when the management and funding of the schools were all local. That has to be the silliest thing I’ve ever heard him say. You see, I am a retired teacher, so I do have some […]

Vote yes on Measure M

Editor, We urge the voters of Mariposa County to vote “yes” on Measure “M.” With the passage of Measure “M,” it is promised that the money will be used for law enforcement, fire protection and road improvement. Mariposa County residents cannot afford to neglect this opportunity to increase funds for the safety of our county. Our sheriff has been doing […]

When I first met her, she was a teacher and counselor at Mariposa County High School. She then went on to become principal at Mariposa Middle School and now serves […]
