Re: “A Father's Quest

Oh man... you can see the problem unfolding right before your eyes on here... I posted before but I am going to chime in one more time because you are seeing in these posts exactly what happens when people end up in "family" court. First, I agree with every comment about staying OUT of the "family" court system that is unless you want to make a lot of lawyers and doctors rich. However it only takes one parent to make a custody battle a nightmare. The mother and/or some of her friends are obviously using this bulletin board to smear the father in the article. That in-and-of-itself tells a lot about the 2 parties involved. Think about it, only people with no valid argument resort to character assassination. I should know because that is the SAME tactics that are being used against me in court. Make accusation after accusation in “family” court, and guess what - IT WORKS, SADLY of course. There are web sites devoted to it (see divorceproblems dot com). In my opinion if the mother declined to be interviewed and instead you see posts on here making accusations about the father - that speaks for it self... Unfortunately, as I said in my other post, all a woman has to do is make accusations and a man is screwed in "family" court. To the father, my words of wisdom: don't engage in it, and get yourself a video camera to protect yourself. Look at what happened in the BART shooting case.

Re: “A Father's Quest

I too have been screwed by the Alameda "family" court system - which is NOT a family court. The judges rotate like lawn furniture, which is part of the problem. I had 2 custody evaluations and asked only for my LEGAL 50% custody. But women and unscrupulous lawyers will throw the "abusive' charge out, and then you are in the dog house FOREVER - trying to prove a negative. It is the one thing you are guilty of without it legally being proven. There is also a totally UNCONSTITUTIONAL law on the CA books that says if one side of a COURT ORDERED custody evaluation does not want that entered into evidence, it will NOT be considered in a custody trial. OK, fathers - and mothers for that matter - who have been screwed by "family" court it is high time to stand up and DEMAND change. I would love for Erin Gilmore to look into my case. Thanks for the article and I hope something positive comes from it. Oh and by the way these "judges" are supposed to be reconfirmed by election - do NOT vote for them! Any fathers or mothers who have been poorly treated in court should WRITE LETTERS before each election and kick these lazy, bias incompetent "judges" off the bench.

Re: “More Flak from Proposed Berkeley Science Ban

I am also a Berkeley High parent, and there are several problems with this decision. It has been reported that the school Administration violated the CA Education Codes (what a surprise BHS does this a lot) and also did and end-around the Governance Committee. That is very troubling. Regarding the "extra" period comment above - when to school on the east coast and had to take my electives during "zero" period, or after school. I did not get to take more than 1 or 2 "elective" classes during my regular school time. At BHS they allow student (through the "small schools" program) to stack a lot of their normal class time with what would have been "elective" classes when I was in school. I believe that is what has made BHS have to offer Lab classes for those "zero" period and "7th" period time slots. All-in-all BHS keeps experimenting with too many schedule changes and special programs and now they have bumped up against a wall due to budget problems, etc.. BTW, don't forget to mention that several times a month BHS starts at 10am, what??? That's right, for those of us over 40 - did your school day ever start at 10am?
