Charles Howell has been settling into his new principal position for more than a month now, but the real test will come Tuesday on Galt High School's first day. He replaces former principal Bernie Olmos, who left the district after being offered a teaching position for this school year.

Howell, who is coming to Galt at a time of transition, said he didn't realize at the time he applied for the position that the district's superintendent was leaving. Tom Gemma's last day was June 30.

    What paper? I hope this fellow does well for the kids sake...I hope he fights for ALL of the kids like Bernie Olmos did. Hopefully, no one will be running his job like Gemma did Olmos.
