-I- ~ WEDNESDAY >> FEBRUARY 10, 2016 >> THE GRIDLEY HERALD Question or comments? Contact Editor Lisa Van De Hey at By Charles King Esperanza High Teacher I have been a teacher at Esperanza Continuation High School for the past 14 years. It has come to my attention that students and parents in our area are misinformed about many as- peers of our school. I would like to give a clear picture of the advan- tages of attending Esperanza High School, which has been serving this community for over 40 years. To attend Esperanza a student must be at least 16 years old and usually CHOOSE to attend our pro- gram because they're credit deficient. At Esperanza, students will earn class credits in core subjects such as English, History, Math and Science in addition to credits earned at their own pace from home or school using our computer based program. This allows a student to make up credits they are lacking and get back on track for graduating with their class. Our students enjoy more personal atten- tion as our student to teacher ratio is about 15q and more 1-1 time is available in the afternoons. Some students prefer a shorter school day (our school hours are 8 a.m., - 12 p.m.) leaving more time in the afternoon to pursue work opportunities, or concurrent enrollment in college. Our program al- lows students who don't fit the typical high school model to escape the social drama associated with larger schools, accelerate their education and gradu- ate early if they are willing to work hard or attend an independent study program for personal, medical or other reasons, and attend a school in an alternative environment with teachers and staff who take a per- sonal interest in their lives and future. I will now address some of the common miscon- ceptions about Esperanza High School. One misconception is:"kkll the students are gang A-4556080. NOTICE OF TRUSTEE'S SALE T.S.

A second misconception is: "All the students there do drugs: Unfortunately, drugs are available on any school campus, however, Esperanza is a closed campus, in a small setting, with constant supervision and our students KNOW we WILL call the police and have them arrested if they violate the rules about drugs. A third misconception is: "Only stupid kids go there:' We have students from across the educational spectrum; from one student who scored 450 out of 450 on the California High School Exit Exam, to stu- dents who knew they weren't going to graduate be- cause of the number of credits they needed to make up, but attended anyway because they enjoyed corn- ing to school. : Our attendance rate is one of the best in the coun- ty! The greatest misconception of all about Esperanza is "their diploma isn't as good as the high school di- ploma? The only difference between an Esperanza diploma and a comprehensive high school's diploma is a student cannot go directly to a university from Es- peranza.

Butte County Superior Court Judge Michael Deems sentenced Brandon Qassem, 32, now of Pitts- burg, California, to 10 years and 8 months in state prison at a sentencing held Thursday, February 4, 2016. Qassem was convicted of felony Child Endan- germent and Manufacturing a Controlled Substance Resulting in Great Bodily Injury on November 5, 2015. The convictions stemmed from Qassem man- ufacturing butane honey oil, an extremely explosive and unlawful method of making concentrated can- nabis, when the vapors from the butane gas found an ignition source and exploded on November 30, 2014 at approximately 10:20 a.m. in Thermalito. The explosion was so violent it knocked the house off its foundation and nearly killed Qassem's two young nephews, ages 13 and 15, who were inside the struc- ture when it exploded. Qassem's 13-year-old nephew suffered second and third degree burns on 60% of his body, and his 15-year-old nephew suffered second and third degree California State University, Chico's College of Ag- riculture will host its 13th annual Career and Intern- ship Fair on Feb. 17, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the University Farm Pavilion located at 311 Nicholas C.

Boswell, The Morning Star Company, Nationwide Agribusi- ness, Rabobank, Tanimura & Antle, and the Tremont and Lyman Groups are registered to attend. The annual Career and Internship Fair has had continued success connecting student jobseekers and potential employers in all fields of agriculture.

Both boys spent more than two months in the intensive care unit and were treated at Shriners Hospital in Sacramento for several months, undergoing multiple skin grafts and surger- ies. They will also endure multiple future surgeries as they grow out 0fthe skin that has been grafted. Angela Qassem, 30, Pittsburg, California, wife of Brandon Qassem, was convicted of one felony count of Child Endangerment for allowing finished butane honey oil product to be within reach of her one year old child. The concentrated cannabis, a significant danger to children, was found in a stroller inside the Qassem's home, well within reach of the mobile one- year-old child. Angela Qassem was sentenced to48 months formal child abuse probation and 90 days county jail. District Attorney Mike Ramsey said the stiff sen- tence should send a message to those engaging in the dangerous occupation of manufacturing butane honey oil that there are severe penal consequences to their actions. Ramsey said BHO manufacturing has grown exponentially with the commercialization of the marijuana industry in the northstate. The DA noted that 31 BHO labs were discovered by local law enforcement in 2014 and 56 were discovered in 2015. Explore trails around the lake Saturdays at 9 a.m., sharp.
