Fresno Unified needs an interim boss, and it’s Larry Powell

Fresno Unified Superintendent Michael Hanson has one foot out the door and is at odds with a majority of trustees on many issues – and that’s not good for the district. It needs to be put to rest quickly. Bill McEwen’s solution: Buy out Hanson and hire Larry Powell as interim superintendent.

How does Jerry Dyer celebrate 15 years as police chief?

Saturday night at the Fresno Convention Center Exhibit Hall, a gala, black-tie optional affair, billed as a “gala evening of dinner, dancing and entertainment,” will celebrate Police Chief Jerry Dyer’s anniversary and benefit Project STEALTH. That is a program that uses police chaplains to mentor runaway youth, and it is credited with helping kids overcome challenges in school and at home.

How about complying with the police officer’s commands?

Full disclosure: I am the father and the brother of law enforcement officers, neither of which work for the Fresno Police Department. I think about them often – their service to their communities, their love of the profession, and their love of family. Every morning, I pray that they return home safe and sound.
