Whereas the concept of Earth Day is a noble one, it is difficult to swallow the "sustainability" package when for the past week I've seen truck after truck hauling in kiosks, chairs, booths, portapotties, etc. Why do we have to celebrate the Earth by hosting 200 exhibitors, a Green Home Pavilion, Car show, etc.? Anyone who has gone to Earth Day before has also seen the piles of trash that is produced by this event.
This is Capitalism at its finest once again. Now that "Green" is in vogue the race to make the most 'green' is on!
SB needs to rethink this event. Presently, it is pure hypocrisy!

silly scared humphrey . . .
1. The kids were 4, 6, and 7. Age has nothing to do with an individual child's ability; the two who made it to the top (6 & 7) were EXPERIENCED, not just confident. They have been climbing since before they could walk, but of course you wouldn't know that . . . you've already decided, without knowing Lia or the children, that they were in danger. Again, this is all you! Obviously, you wouldn't let your poor children do this and hence have assimilated your fears. Keep your irrational fears away from OUR children!
Irresponsible? Why? They were experienced climbers, on that very hill, essentially TRAINED.
It's far more irresponsible to judge and make accusations against another culture, community, parent, or child without truly knowing anything about it/them. Such behavior is divisive to community.
p.s. "East Beach" you truly are lost! That's next to SB Cemetery.

JamPenn, you should try to contain your ignorance more, it's not becoming. They were on a moderately sloped hill a short walk in the other direction past the restaurant. Checked a topo map and there is nothing over 100 feet NW of there!
Humphrey, my kids (3 & 5) have climbed that hill and I've climbed up to the top/trail using my left index finger as additional balance! You don't seem to have any real knowledge of it.
TO SEE A HILL IS NOT THE SAME AS KNOWING IT
Furthermore, to even CONDONE "Big Brother's" intervention reveals what a truly scared human you have become. How do you know where her kids were? Were you there? Did you call 911? You sound just paranoid enough to have done it . . .
Do you realize by clumsily intervening in a culture you know nothing about has had devastating results to Ms. Grippo's livelihood/passion, her family's stability, and to the lives of the families in her program?
Are those kids safer now that they're out of a school? lost a beloved teacher?It's true what her son said (in an earlier article:http://www.independent.com/news/2009/... )"Mama, I know why those people were afraid. They couldn't climb the hill themselves."
shame on you!

Surprising! There are remnants of justice left in our courts and bureaucracies. Mr. Harmachis is quite simply one of the most progressive teachers in our county. The whole story is not told in this tiny article (no surprise there), so unless you know the details of this case do not 'cast the first stone' (yes you, IVconcerned!).
Congratulations Matef! Your students await!
