They need a new freeway from 580 to 680 that starts at Eden Canyon and goes through the mountainsRead More and comes out in San Ramon
timothy April 23, 2014 at 03:13 pm
California needs a LOT of freeways but as long as the Democrats remain in power it will never happenRead More because the Sierra Club, which holds on dearly to its 1970's mindset, controls the democratic Party on highway issues. They forget that vehicles will run far longer and put out far more automotive exhaust while sitting in zero to 10 mile per hour traffic than if roads were build to handle the heavy load. They have always assumed that building freeways encourages sprawl. We all know that "sprawl" occurs in people's bedrooms making too many babies as well as out of control immigrant policies. We all pay for poorly managed government. And environmentalist have been lying to everyone for years. Sadly my generation of baby boomers believed everything their teachers told them. Blindly. And this is why we are in such bad shape.

Maybe he'll be out in 5 years, but on the other hand these are very precious 5 years for a youngRead More person. The high school classmates that he graduated with last June have moved on with their lives, while he has been stuck in jail. They're now in colleges throughout the country bettering themselves for a career, or gotten jobs, or maybe joined the military and are seeing the world. Meanwhile, Cody is going to be stuck in the slow lane for the next 5 or so years. When he does get out, he'll be a jobless +23 year old felon with a high school degree, while most of his classmates will have graduated from college and embarking on their careers. So it's difficult not to sympathize a little with his situation even though he brought it all on himself. I hope that he comes out of jail a better person than when he went in.

We were told he'd do 85% of the time, which equals over 7 years. And, of course, credit for theRead More time he's been in Santa Rita Jail.

No matter if he serves 7 years or 100 years when he gets out he gets to live his life. When he'sRead More released my family will still be broken and never the same. My dad will be without the love of his life, me and my sister without our mom and my 2 wonderful kids without their grandma. We miss her everyday and every hour. It never gets easier... We just just get used to it.

Let me guess, this man was not really qualified for the job but got the job because of affirmativeRead More action. Just like other "entitled" people who think the world owes them and they just take. All the liberals feels so sorry for these people that they just let it slide by. Remember Muslim bakery? I know someone who worked at a section 8/ below market housing complex. Drug dealers were living there after their grandmothers died. People threw garbage all over and trashed their apartments and then demanded to have the apartments renovated. Our system is broken. Personal responsibility is what we need. Also, in a civilized society, people think about what is good for the whole, not just the individual.
lubov mazur April 16, 2014 at 08:02 pm
Shouldn't the bail be more or as much as the amount he is accused of stealing? 20% of $500k is moreRead More like a tax; he could just bolt and still have plenty.
Ken Briggs April 16, 2014 at 09:20 pm
Hugo You are maybe right , but with the low bail, will he still stay around ? doeshe still going toRead More the same church ? hell he should repay every dime plus interest and jail time . with his smart as kids maybe they mightknow how to repay the funds . any way he should be not paid to do nothing not even to use a computer.

This is a sham and a disgrace. This woman has been a part of 4 years of injustice for NanetteRead More Dillard, seeking a scapegoat for the board and county's mismanagement of ACAP funds.

Does this bill compromise the 6th amendment right of accused confront the witness against him?
T. Brickle April 10, 2014 at 09:30 am
Very good question Mr. Buckings. I would hope that was considered when teh bill was authored.Read More Tri-Valley residents would be shocked if they knew how much human trafficking is going on right here in our "backyards". It's not just about prostitution and other sex-related acts, although that is a MAJOR component. Forced labor/involuntary servitude has many forms from prostitution to selling fruit on a street corner. For those interested, check out this website: http://millionkids.org/

Jake is a fair and honest man.I know he takes these traits to the bench when he makes decisions.
Jim McSharry April 13, 2014 at 01:53 am
He took his chances trying to get the court to take their responsibility seriously. UnfortunatelyRead More they turned on him, just as I would expect. It's been a long time since anything but the very worst police misconduct is even given a second glance. They all rally around each other and try to gloss over their everyday brutality and corruption. I have taken a decision to the appellate and the three of them could not have cared less about the misjudgment of the officer, and worse, improper court procedure. So my experience tells me in spite of his priors, he had justification for suing the police, and probably the hospital as well. But our courts judge by where they think you stand in society, not by merits of any particular case facts. It's a sad time in America.
Desert Rat April 13, 2014 at 12:31 pm
So that justifies death threats to the judges? That is even more sad if you think so.

We could be reading a similar story about every single one of our "public servants",Read More democrat or republican. Everything is for sale for what amounts to peanuts to the corporations and criminals that make "political contributions". The larger we allow the state to grow the worse this is going to get. "when you see that trading is done, not by consent, but by compulsion - when you see that in order to produce, you need to obtain permission from men who produce nothing - when you see money flowing to those who deal, not in goods, but in favors - When you see that men get richer by graft and pull then by work, and your laws don't protect you against them but protect them against you - when you see corruption Being rewarded and honestly being a self sacrifice, you may know that your society is doomed." Ayn Rand

What's the difference between Leland Yee doing favors for political contributions and otherRead More politicians doing favors to unions and corporations? The whole system is rigged to screw taxpayers. They need to stop all personal gifts and corporate donations including unions.

It's time for this crap to stop.
