Mornings are the busiest time of day for my family, which is why I love this simple to make, easy to freeze baked breakfasts like this one. Simply freeze individual sized portions for a quick, wholesome, filling breakfast.

Letter: Dawn Turnbull

April 21, 2015

Editor's Note: The following letter is a copy of Dawn Turbull's "Response to Notice of Intention to Circulate Recall Petition" that was sent to Michael Scarpello, County Registrar of Voters on April 19.

The LVUSD Board had a custom of closed session meetings using the ruse of a Superintendents evaluation where anything was discussed with no agenda. I questioned this back door for breaking the Brown Act; Tom Courtney winked at me and said now I was getting it. That practice is no longer being used.
