    It was the fifth annual Sacramento Road Trip, organized each year by KHTS AM-1220 radio station owners Carl Goldman and Jeri Seratti-Goldman.

    ISSUE #1 - Impact of State Budget Cuts

    The Hart District's State revenue has been slashed by $20 million, resulting in increased class size, less counseling support, reduced intervention programs, proposed reduction in instructional days, salary and benefit reductions for both certificated and classified personnel, and lay-offs for classified positions, handicapping our ability to maintain a quality educational program.
