               BULLYING IS ALIVE AND WELL IN CLAIREMONT

I live across the street from Field Elementary located on Bannock avenue. My next door neighbors informed me that their 10 year old daughter has been victimized by the same classmates over the past few years. Whenever they attempt to bring this to the attention of the school administration they have encountered a dead end. The situation has gotten so out of control that their daughter has become emotionally distraught. She is presently receiving psychological counseling.

A meeting was recently held between the parents and Ms. Yesinia Robinson, school principal. Their objective was to get some type of assurance that this "Zero Tolerance" offense will finally be resolved. Incidentally, the same offenders have always met with little or no punishment for their behavior. In fact, it was suggested by the victim's present teacher that work, for the remaining number of days of days left on the school calendar, could be sent home; so that the young girl wouldn't have to come to school. Again, no consequences have been presented to the perpetrators. At this last meeting the principal offered the following advice to the parents (paraphrasing), their daughter needs to develop a tough skin. Apparently, resolution of this offensive action can once again be swept under the rug.

What can you say about having an apartment on the canyon's edge in North Clairemont .... helicopters circling by day looking for bank robbers, blaring out subject descriptions over the bullhorn; the constant swish of traffic at rush hour on the road lining the canyon bottom; and late at night when all is quiet ,the yipping and barking of coyotes roaming the hillsides. No beach, but the beach is close enough and it's a heckuva lot cheaper housing.

I have a hard time saying I live in Clairmont. Growing up in PB, I can hear that little voice in my head saying, "uhhh Square-mont". Locals that live hear say, "oh, I live in North City, Bay Ho, Bay Park or by the 5 and the 52". TRUTH be told....Square-mont is an ideal geographic location. Close to all the pleasures that SD provides. Minutes from the bay, beach, downtown and where jobs concentrate. Oh yeah, Square-mont enjoys the cool coastal weather without that pesty marine layer.

You're right, perfect location to all, without having to deal with the fallout of coastal or downtown living. Yet houses still start at half a million. I too live in "East PB," but we have The Home Depot & Target they have to drive to. Most of all, we have the Blarneystone!

Recently, while walking I saw something so funny at the end of Chippewa Ct that I had to share it. The problem is I’m not sure if it is funny because the city sent workers with RED PAINT to the site of a fire hydrant to mark the curb for future painting or if it is funny because it is the new way to indicate a red curb – that is draw lines at the edges and just write the word “red” on the curb
