The Walnut Creek School District Governing Board decided at its Oct. 1 meeting to take a position of support and endorse Propositions 30 and 38 for the upcoming Nov. 6 election. Proposition 30 is Gov. Jerry Brown's initiative for a quarter-cent sales tax and an increased income tax on the wealthy, to avoid massive midyear cuts.
Prop 38 would temporarily raise income taxes, for 12 years, on most Californians on a sliding scale.

The authors of a "The Biggest Job We'll Ever Have" will be the speakers at the Seven Hills School Parent Lecture Series at 7 p.m. Oct. 10 at the school 975 N. San Carlos Drive in Walnut Creek.
Laura and Malcolm Gauld are founders of the parenting workshops that emerged from their book. Their philosophy centers on a parent being the child's primary teacher.
