If you have been reading this blog you may have noticed a few comments like the ones shown here in our coverage of all things Cortines and LAUSD during the last few years. What do you think we were talking about? Cotton Candy? excerpts from past blogs:

Odd Couplings? What a tangled love nest of hi-jinx this is. Top center:James Sohn, the Sohnic - boom, former boss, very close personal associate of notorious LA Community College, pole dancing, “Inspector General” Christine “The Hotness” Marez. left: (working out on the Playboy Mansion Pole) right: Cortines LAUSD heart throb sizzlin’ Scot Graham, whom Sohn tried to pressure into silence about Cortines poolside extra curricular activity at “Ray’s Sweet Rancho Hideaway”. Cortines, below center (as usual..) got all “adult” with sweet baby Scot ...said to be so hot he needs only one ‘T”.


So just what was it the Sohn-ic boom was up to that linked him in with all these hot numbers and all of those billion$ of $uspicious construction number$ at both Community College and LAUSD? He sure didn’t play favorites about whose side of the fence he was slathering the Cover Girl cover-up on for, we can say that for him.


In 2009 when the skillet got too hot at Community College he jumped over to LAUSD’s frying pan and the sizzling “Hotness’.  Major scandals in the building program at LAUSD with both he and the Hotness, mentioned in the internal LAUSD investigation report, seemed to propel her, with a Sohn-ic boost ,right into the Community College, where she is now the subject of an investigation by LA DA Cooley herself , while she “investigates” her way around the infamous “Billions to Spend” bond abuse crony corruption at LACCD, outlined in a scathing and award winning series by the LA Times.


Sohn-ic boom has landed, ka-boom, at a sweetheart government contractor Seville Construction Services. Seville recently got into hot water with San Diego’s DA over overly cozy relationships...but I digress, it’s just all so...cozy..


Do these people ever rest? I’m getting dizzy just trying to follow all this jumping, wiggling action.

L.A. Unified construction chief resigns
During James Sohn's brief tenure with the district, 21 new schools opened to reduce overcrowding. He came under scrutiny, however, for his handling of contractors in the nation's largest school-building program.

March 16, 2011|By Howard Blume and Gale Holland, Los Angeles Times

The head of the $20-billion construction program for the Los Angeles Unified School District announced his resignation Tuesday, the second departure in two years of the top official for the nation's largest school-construction program.
James Sohn had the support of Supt. Ramon C. Cortines, who said he especially valued Sohn's efforts to streamline the maintenance of schools in the wake of budget cuts. But Sohn, 44, also has come under scrutiny for his handling of contractors in the district's massive school-building program - READ MORE

...This blog asks, is it true Mr. Cortines, that you get $150,000.00 a year for sitting on the board of "Scholastic"? Please tell us that all the benefits your job at LAUSD, a big customer of Scholastic's  products, could possibly bring that company, is in no way any kind of conflict. Is it? How much is spent on Scholastic products at LAUSD Mr. Cortines? Inquiring minds want to know.


School Board member Monica Garcia and Super Cortines may have a little something “Sweet” in common. We’re just wondering, is it something in the water, swimming pool water that is?





...THE L.A. TIMES FINDS NOTHING UNUSUAL HERE?

A SEXUAL HARASSMENT LAWSUIT HAD NEVER BEEN FILED. THERE WERE NO CHARGES IN WRITING. NEVERTHELESS, IN CLOSED SESSION, LAUSD SCHOOL BOARD ALMOST PAYS OUT $200,000 IN HUSH MONEY TO PROTECT ALL THOSE WHO WERE INVOLVED IN THE FUN AND GAMES AT RAMON'S PRIVATE RANCHERO.

EVERY ATTRACTIVE MALE WORKING AT LAUSD KNEW THAT ACCEPTING A PERSONAL INVITATION THAT INVOLVED A TRIP TO SUPERINTENDENT CORTINES SECLUDED KERN COUNTY GETAWAY INEVITABLY MEANT YOU WERE WILLING TO SUBMIT TO ORAL SODOMY AT THE HANDS OF THE SUPERINTENDENT IN EXCHANGE FOR A JOB PROMOTION DOWN THE LINE.

" PUT OUT FOR A PAYOUT" IS WHAT THEY CALLED THIS OBVIOUS PROPOSITION.

CERREL ASSOCIATES GOT PAID $25,000 BY LAUSD TO GHOSTWRITE CORTINES' APOLOGY LETTER THAT CREATES A NEW SYNONYM FOR  COCKSUCKING: "ADULT BEHAVIOR". AND SETS A NEW HIGH FOR SCREWING UP SOMETHING THAT WAS ALREADY AS SCREWED UP AS YOU THOUGHT IT COULD GET...

$25,000 A PAGE FOR CREATING A FANTASY IS MORE THAN EVEN STEPHEN KING GETS PAID.

AT LONG LAST, THE FLOODGATES HAVE OPENED. VILLARAIGOSA AND THE L.A.TIMES CAN NO LONGER PROTECT RAMON'S WRINKLED SENIOR CITIZEN ASS!

THE L.A TIMES COMES AS NO SURPRISE TO THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN FOLLOWING HOLLYWOODHIGHLANDS.ORG COVERAGE OF RAMON'S SEXUAL ON-THE-JOB SHENANIGANS. 

LA TIMES REPORTER HOWARD BLUME HAS BEEN IN CHARGE OF COVERING  CORTINES' GAY PREDATOR 
ASS FOR YEARS. LAUSD EMPLOYEES HAVE CALLED
BLUME TO TIP THE TIMES ON HORNDOG RAMON. BUT BLUME'S EDITOR TOLD HIM NEVER TO 
INVESTIGATE THE CHARGES FOR FEAR OF EMBARRASSING THE MAYOR.

BLUME WANTED TO KEEP HIS JOB SO HE NEVER FOLLOWED UP ON CORTINES SEXUAL HARASSMENT ACCUSATIONS BY EMPLOYEES.

Former L.A. Unified official takes job with firm that contracted with district
May 13, 2011 | By Michael Finnegan and Gale Holland, Los Angeles Times
Weeks after stepping down as chief of the Los Angeles Unified School District's $20-billion construction program, James D. Sohn took a job at a company that has profited from public contracts he approved. Sohn's hiring by Seville Construction Services Inc. of Pasadena highlights the tight bonds between the public officials in charge of building Los Angeles schools and the companies they hire to manage construction. Sohn, now executive vice president of Seville, is the third consecutive chief facilities executive at L.A. Unified to resign and go to work for a construction management firm whose work - READ MORE

Is Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa Pushing To Replace L.A. Unified Superintendent Ramon Cortines With John Deasy?
By Patrick Range McDonald Fri., Jan. 7 2011 at 7:00 AM,  LA WEEKLY

LAUSD Deputy Superintendent John Deasy
The conventional wisdom in local public education circles was that Los Angeles Unified School District Superintendent Ramon Cortines would retire this spring... well, so much for that.

HollywoodHighlands.org bloggers John Walsh and Miki Jackson and the Los Angeles Times are reporting Cortines could be gone by early next week, with deputy superintendent John Deasy taking over. An L.A. Unified insider told us the same thing, and that Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is making all the moves behind the scenes to make it happen. 
As reported by the Los Angeles Daily News, Deasy is already making $25,000 more than Cortines and the deputy superintendent took over his boss's office. So the change was destined to come.
People just didn't know it was going to take place so soon.
Just like our inside source, Jackson and Walsh say Villaraigosa and his people told L.A. Unified Board of Education President Monica Garcia in no uncertain terms that Deasy must become superintendent, and pronto.
The L.A. Times reports that Villaraigosa met with Garcia and Deasy on Wednesday to discuss "transition issues."
According to our source, there's now a battle of sorts between Villaraigosa and L.A. Unified Board members over how the promotion of Deasy goes down. Board members, according to our source, don't want to look as if they are the mayor's puppets. Yet Villaraigosa wants to somehow score political points since he's long talked about improving L.A.'s public schools.
As L.A. Weekly reported several months ago, John Deasy is no stranger to controversy.

Now we can say what that extra push was behind all that urgency to move Rockin’ Ray out of the LAUSD nest, but quick. Who knows how much those messy sex scandals can stink up the joint better than our own Playboy Mayor? Ironic to see the Anotonio cleaning up someone else’s sex messes? At least Antonio isn’t accused of forcing himself on his playmates, you say ... but then he isn’t pushing 80, yet.
CBS News’ Serene Branson dogs hunky Ray in his sexy duds, no luck Serene - you’re cute, but just not his type. Maybe sexy Scot did really earn that extra  pay...http://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2012/05/23/lausd-board-settles-sexual-harassment-claim-against-ramon-cortines-for-200k/

Brown backs wrong horse.Carmen gets come-uppance at polls.Only out of touch LA Times stunned

BLOGGERS CELEBRATE CITY ATTORNEY WEEPS!

GOVERNOR BROWN BACKS WRONG HORSE IN LOS ANGELES D.A. RACE.  JERRY'S ROBO-CALLS BACKFIRE. EGG FOUND PLASTERED ALL OVER BROWN'S FACE. SHOO-IN SHUT OUT!
                              
YESTERDAY TRUTANICH HELD A SURPRISE PARTY FOR HIMSELF. THE SURPRISE WAS HE LOST.

THE ANYBODY-BUT-TRUTANICH BLOGGER COALITION DEFIED THE CONVENTIONAL WISDOM PURVEYED BY THE L.A. TIMES AND  ACCURATELY PREDICTED LAST NIGHT'S "SURPRISING" OUTCOME.

WE WORKED TOGETHER TIRELESSLY TO MAKE THE DEFEAT OF TRUTANICH PREDICTION COME TRUE. VENCEREMOS!

YESTERDAY 76.68% OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY VOTERS TOOK THE ADVICE OF THE UNITED BLOGGER COMMUNITY AND VOTED FOR SOMEBODY BESIDES CARMEN BABY.

THE ONLY PLACE CARMEN TRUTANICH WAS THE FAVORITE WAS IN THE OFFICE OF TIMES PUBLISHER EDDY HARTENSTEIN. WEDNESDAY MORNING EDDY HAD HIS SECRETARY TAKE DOWN ALL THE TRUTANICH POSTERS.

THE L.A. TIMES IS HOPELESSLY OUT OF TOUCH. THE D.A ELECTION RESULTS DID NOT PROVE TO BE AN UPSET AS THE TIMES IS CURRENTLY SPINNING IT. THE BLOGGER COMMUNITY WAS NOT SURPRISED THAT CARMEN TOOK HIS LAST BOW LAST NIGHT.
THE BLOGGER GOAL WAS CARMEN'S EXIT FROM POLITICAL LIFE:

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!

HATS OFF TO D.A. ELECTION ACTIVISTS/PROGNOSTICATORS SUCH AS RON KAYE, MAYOR SAM, STREET HASSLE, JOE FRIDAY,ZUMA DOGG, JACK HUMPHREVILLE, STEPHEN BOX, HOLLYWOODHIGHLANDS.ORG AND OTHERS WHO ACCURATELY CALLED TRUTANICH THE LOSER LONG BEFORE THE POLLS OPENED; AND WORKED TOGETHER TIRELESSLY TO MAKE THAT SO-CALLED  UNLIKELY PREDICTION A REALITY!

WITHOUT  RELENTLESS BLOGGER  OPPOSITION, CARMEN WOULD  HAVE  EMERGED VICTORIOUS TODAY. THE "VISION-IMPAIRED" L.A. TIMES EDITOR, DAVAN MAHARAJ KNOWS THAT'S TRUE. BUT HE BLINDLY PRETENDS THAT THE L.A. POLITICAL BLOGOSPHERE HAS NEITHER CLOUT NOR SAVVY .

WHY? BECAUSE WE ARE THE  LOS ANGELES TIMES' COMPETITION AND WE JUST GAINED A LOT OF GROUND ON SPRING STREET.

FOR WEEKS NEWS TV AND PUBLIC RADIO HAVE BEEN ECHOING THE TIMES OUT-OF-TOUCH CONVENTIONAL WISDOM THAT TRUTANICH WAS UNSTOPPABLE! 

AT ONE POINT,THE TIMES EVEN PREDICTED CARMEN WOULD BREAK 50  %  PER CENT AND TAKE HOME ALL THE MARBLES ON JUNE 5th.

TRUTANICH HAD A FIFTH COLUMN PLEDGED TO HIM INSIDE THE LOS ANGELES TIMES. YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!

THE  CURTAIN IS FALLING ON L.A.'S NOISIEST SOAP OPERA," THE LOVES OF CARMEN".
EITHER LACEY OR JACKSON  WILL  PROVE TO BE A VAST IMPROVEMENT OVER ICE-COLD COOLEY. 

LACEY'S ELECTION WOULD MARK A TREND STARTED  BY ATTORNEY GENERAL KAMALA HARRIS:BLACK WOMAN PROSECUTORS IN CHARGE!

POOR OLD JERRY BROWN GOT INVOLVED IN L.A POLITICS AND GOT BITTEN ON THE ASS. FORENSICALLY SPEAKING, THE TEETH MARKS  MATCH THE CITY ATTORNEY'S .

LABOR CZARINA MARIA ELENA DURAZO SOLD HER UNION'S SOUL TO  TRUTANICH FOR NOTHING IN RETURN. CARMEN'S DEBACLE SHOWED  MS. DURAZO TO BE A TOOTHLESS TIGRESS!

DON'T EXPECT TO SEE GOVERNOR JERRY BROWN'S EMBARRASSED FACE IN LOS ANGELES ANYTIME SOON.  MAYBE HE SHOULD WAIT A WHILE AND TAKE THE  BULLET TRAIN HERE FOR HIS NEXT TRIP !

THE TV NEWS VISITS TO  THE  TRUTANICH "VICTORY" PARTY  WERE DELICIOUS. SHERIFF BACA WAS TRYING TO AVOID THE CAMERA. WHAT A NOVELTY!  BACA HAD THE LONGEST FACE ANYONE HAS EVER SEEN ON  SHERIFF LEROY.

THE ATMOSPHERE AT CARMEN'S FINAL VICTORY PARTY WAS LIKE  A SCENE IN FRONT OF  RACE TRACK TICKET WINDOWS AFTER THE FAVORITE HAS JUST LOST THE BIG RACE AND EVERYONE IS GLUMLY TEARING UP THEIR  LOSING TICKETS.

THE BLOGGER COMMUNITY HATES TO SAY WE TOLD YOU SO , BUT...
