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.

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.

>> outstanding contributions to the field of victims’ rights. << This award toRead More the woman who decided that there were no grounds for a prosecution in the case of victim David Lamont , who ended up in a months-long coma and has a long road of rehabilitation ahead of him. after a confrontation with rowdy teens outside his Pleasanton home? Shame on the awards committee.

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. It's a reprehensible disgrace that she, or anyone representing the Alameda County judicial system be rewarded for anything. http://www.change.org/petitions/california-state-auditor-investigate-the-closing-of-acap-and-the-theft-of-300-000-in-federal-anti-poverty-funds-by-alameda-county-including-stimulus-funds#share

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/

Probably a good idea Steff but there is the possibility that she slipped and fell in a remote area..
Steff April 7, 2014 at 09:49 am
agreed, but one never knows...it's all about managing risk...i hope she is OK!!!

I understand there is a loophole that will allow him to defend himself via the use of his campaignRead More contributions..
dan mcdunn April 1, 2014 at 08:10 am
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

It is unbelievable to me that he is still collecting his salary. While the federal government wagesRead More a war on terrorism, Yee tries to sell them weapons. I hope he sees the inside of a prison as a result. Imagine how the other corrupt politicians in Sacramento are sweating.

Jow April 1, 2014 at 08:13 am
When will "putting on make-up" while driving become distracted driving? I see so manyRead More women doing this...
LMO737 April 1, 2014 at 04:06 pm
No more threats! First offense, suspend license, sell car at auction, give driver Bart and BusRead More schedules. These drivers can use public transportation.

Anybody who criticizes Leland Yee is racist. Felonies not withstanding....
Hutch March 28, 2014 at 09:10 pm
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.
Hutch March 31, 2014 at 02:19 pm
It's time for this crap to stop. Send Jerry Hill a message Senator.Hill@senate.ca.gov Tell him toRead More change laws to stop all "gifts" and stop contributions by lobbyists, corporations and unions. Also if a politician is suspended they should lose all pay and benefits unless they are later exonerated.

Maybe his lawyers can funnel some of that " My Brothers Keeper " cash from Santa ClauseRead More and begin building his defense.

I agree that the editor is overworked. I think it would be a good idea for us to have a "tipRead More line" to send ideas for stories and "scoops" directly to the editor. Some people don't want to write full articles, but this way we could inform the editor and they can check it out in a more timely manner. Don't make it too fancy. On the front page put "Tip Line" or "Contact the Editor" or something like that.

News tips, photos etc. are always appreciated— especially with me trying to gain understandingRead More of so many cities in two counties.

What a horrible way to die. Poor baby must have been suffering from mental illness to choose to endRead More her life that way.

There's those out there who are bound to leave this world in a blaze of glory (no pun intended...),Read More but there's nothing too spectacular about the selection of this park. It shouldn't have taken too much imagination to think of someplace a little more interesting. According to the news reports, there doesn't appear to be any witnesses or spectators to this weenie roast, so what's the point, anyway?

christopher papazoglow where have you been at the last two days , at first it looked like aRead More carjacking .then the teen ager became a woman , and that they all knew each other , yes you got to see what all news out lets have to say .
Ken Briggs February 13, 2014 at 05:35 pm
so who was the woman that looked like a kid ? if it was not for her all this would not of gotten outRead More . but guess the scum that started all this should stay in jail and then prison and no ngood time and they all should pay something for the cost of this screw up . thank the police for getting this scum off the streets for awhile .
christopher papazoglow February 13, 2014 at 05:48 pm
"....where have you been the last two days...." Uh, following the story, Ken. Yeah, iRead More heard all that, that you're talking about. What i HAVEN'T heard or seen is that "the report of kidnap came from them" that, supposedly, was "on the news today and all day". I asked a question of "reference" around 4 hours ago, and as yet haven't received an answer. From either April or anyone else who saw/read that "the report of kidnap came from them".
Robert Marshall February 6, 2014 at 07:55 am
This explains the helicopters in Albany just about 6:15am-ish. With one lane each way I'm sure itRead More didn't take long to snarl up traffic. Lord know what San Pablo must've looked like at that point because there aren't too many alternatives at this point.
Patty O'Day February 6, 2014 at 01:18 pm
It took me 2.5 hours to get to my job in Mill Valley today from Hercules. This commute usuallyRead More takes me about 50 minutes. I thought I was so smart when I saw how bad the traffic was, I decided to take 680 to 24 across. Apparently everyone else in town had the same idea. Ugh!
