The Academy of Stone Oak: Community Meeting on the Charter Application - San Antonio Charter Moms
The late summer and early fall, just prior to or at the beginning of acorn drop, are perfect times to identify the best and worst producing oaks in your stand of timber. Scouting can be as formal as conducting a mast survey or as informal as taking mental notes of oak trees with heavy crops of acorns on the ground while you are walking to and from your tree stands in the fall.
Either way, scouting oaks for acorn production capability can provide more information when determining where to hunt in the fall or which trees to retain and which trees to remove during a timber harvest. If wildlife management is an objective on your property, trees that you identify as the best acorn producers in the woods can be retained during a timber harvest, while poor producing trees can be removed with little detriment to overall acorn production.
It is important to remember to retain a balance of oaks from both the red and white oak group, favoring red oak, to help safeguard against complete mast failures. Forest management is insurance for mast failure The top photo is of a mature forest with very few canopy gaps resulting in very little cover or food for wildlife.
The bottom picture is of a forest stand where undesirable trees have been girdled tree on the right-hand side of picture to increase light to the forest floor and where multiple prescribed fire have been conducted to increase forage production and cover.
Annual acorn production in a stand of oaks is highly variably and can be dependent on environmental conditions. For example, late frosts, poor pollination, and insect infestations all can be culprits for poor mast production across a stand of oaks.
In year one, the charter school will serve students in grades K—8 in two classes per grade level.

The goal is to expand to four classes per grade level by year five. Dellenback showed drawings of what a facility expansion might look like, provided that enrollment continues to grow. After five years, the school may amend their charter to add grades 9—12, but the cost per student is higher for high school, so they will continue to operate as private school for now.
Pre-K for three- and four-year-olds will continue to operate as a private school. All the current faculty will be invited to teach at the charter school, and there will be new roles to fill with highly qualified teachers. Newman spoke passionately about her ideal teacher: We hire teachers who love to teach.
These are the kind of teachers that students toast at their weddings years later. Newman also spoke about the school culture she tries to create: We must do what is right for the children, not what is easy for us.

If the application is graded highly enough, they will be invited for an interview at the State Board of Education in March In Junethe Commissioner will make a decision about whether the application is approved.
So, August is the earliest possible date when the school would operate as a charter school. School leaders reassured families that the enrollment process for would proceed as usual, and the school would continue operating as a private school.
Assuming the charter application is approved, the school would choose a date to hold open enrollment forperhaps in January Seventeen temporary "assembly centers" were designated to house the evicted population until construction on the more permanent and isolated internment camps was finished.

Most, like Santa Anita, were converted from former uses like racing tracks or fairgrounds. Six mess halls, each seating approximately at a time, fed some 3, people daily at a cost of 33 cents per inmate. The sanitary facilities faced similar overcrowding, with a ratio of 30 inmates to each shower after the number of showers was increased from to in early July. Consequently, inmates spent a significant portion of their time in Santa Anita waiting in line for meals or to use the sanitary facilities.
Transfer to War Relocation Authority camps began on August 26,when inmates left for PostonArizona, and over the next month the remaining Japanese Americans were sent to Poston and several other camps. Santa Anita has a one-mile 1, m natural dirt main track which rings a turf course measuring 0. This type of track is one of the few of its kind in America. To comply with a State of California mandate, Santa Anita replaced its dirt racing surface with a new synthetic surface called Cushion Tracka mixture of silica sand, synthetic fibers, elastic fiber, granulated rubber and a wax coating.

The new Cushion Track opened for training on Sept 4, and hosted its first live race on Sept 26, The track lost 11 racing dates in due to a drainage problem with the new material, but intensive maintenance and the addition of a liquid binder greatly improved the artificial surface.
Santa Anita replaced the artificial surface with a return to an all natural dirt surface in December The grandstand facade is rendered in an Art Deco style and is largely the original from the s.
The Park also contains 61 barns, which house more than 2, horses, and an equine hospital. The Santa Anita Racetrack was determined eligible for listing in the National Register of Historic Places in but continued to be threatened by developer's plans.2009 Breeders' Cup Marathon
A themed entertainment complex proposal was aborted, but there were new plans are in the works for the parking and support areas adjacent to the historic race track and grandstands. The Arcadia City Council approved a plan In April to develop ansquare foot commercial, retail, and office complex in the south parking area, where the barracks that housed interned Japanese Americans during World War II are located.
The proposal planned to tear down the South Ticket Gate and the Saddling Barn, and to install a simulcast facility in the center of the historic grandstand.
Protests against the project by the Westfield group, owner of the adjacent Westfield Santa Anita Mall built in on the site of the old barns and training trackand the bankruptcy of Magna Internationalowner of Santa Anita Park, were a factor in the decision.
