DARK DOINGS ON EAST BAY SCHOOL BOARD
By Bill Snyder
The Emeryville school board censured its vice president after
the superintendent of schools accused her of seeking a hit man to
kill him and a witch to hex him.
Rita Dixon was censured Monday night after Superintendent
Peter Corona said she was trying to do him in. The teachers
association also accused her of harassing teachers at Emeryville High
Dixon, who has engaged in prolonged shouting matches with
Corona at previous meetings, denied threatening the superintendent,
saying, "I am a Christian."
As to the threat of a curse, Corona laughed and said: "This
is 1987, not the 1600s, and this is Emeryville, not Salem."
Z. Budapest, a self-styled witch in Oakland, confirmed
yesterday that Dixon approached her last month and asked her to cast
a spell on Corona.Š
"I told her to go suck an egg," said Budapest, who describes
herself as a feminist and founding member of the American movement to
restore Goddess worship to its rightful place.
Budapest said modern witches do not normally put hexes on
people -- except for serial killers who slaughter women, men, and
children. "Hexing them is my obligation as a witch," she said.
