By a more than three-fourths majority — with 99 percent voting — members of the Ramona Teachers Association overwhelming approved a vote authorizing the RTA’s executive board to call for a strike action “when and if it becomes necessary” to the teachers’ efforts to achieve what they believe is a fair contract settlement with the Ramona Unified School District.
“Ramona teachers do not want to strike,” said RTA President Donna Braye-Romero, “but we are not willing to accept the district’s unfair, unreasonable imposition.
A Ramona resident accused of fatally shooting a man during a fight after a failed marijuana buy last September must stand trial on charges of murder and possession of marijuana for sale, a judge ruled.

At least 15 reports of credit and debit card fraud have been filed at the sheriff’s Ramona station in the past week and more are expected as word is spreading that recent victims in Ramona are not alone.

Wednesday, May 8—The community should know the results of the Ramona Teachers Association strike authorization vote by late this afternoon or early this evening.
Teachers started voting yesterday afternoon at a general membership meeting, but because some members had duties that prevented their participation then — including coaches with games — members not able to vote yesterday will have the opportunity to do so during the day today at their school sites, said Bill Guy, communications consultant with the California Teachers Association.
All of the votes will be counted today, beginning around 4 p.m., and results are expected to be available by 7 p.m. at the latest.
The majority of teachers voting is needed for strike authorization passage. This does not mean teachers will strike, RTA representatives said last week. It means they give the RTA executive board the authority to call for a strike.
