I am all for Walmart moving into the old Nob Hill market. I live close and the closed market is an eyesore. Anything going in would be an improvement.
I cannot wait for Walmart.
Something was brought to my attention after discussing the Pleasanton Weekly's March 9 cover story ("Running with the Big Dogs: Amador Valley's DECA carves its own niche in the apparel business") with a family member. It is in reference to the "All About the Purp" T-shirt that was hanging in the background of the cover photo.
The school administration may not have been aware, and was probably duped by some clever students, but "Purp" is a direct reference to marijuana. The school was essentially authorizing the students to wear a T-shirt that, in slang terms, is saying that "Amador is all about the marijuana." Don't believe me -- feel free to do a quick Google search on the word "purp." You can also check the Urban Dictionary. These will show that I am not speaking out of turn.
As a parent that will someday have my children at Amador, I think that this is a poor representation of the school and should be rectified as soon as possible.
