This news provides more evidence that the Moraga Canyon area, once the site for the proposed soccerRead More field that was considered two years ago is fragile and potentially dangerous. It should be abundantly clear with 2 Moraga Avenue mudslides requiring road closure within 2 years that this area is geologically volitile which I pointed out when I ran for City Council. A large, brand new house that I purchased at 5535 Moraga Avenue proceeded to slide down the hill 3 days before the close of escrow. Years ago a tiny girl was playing in her bedroom and was crushed by mud that slithered down the hill behind her house and broke through her window. Her name was Robin. There is a tiny park named after her in the Oakland Hills. I never forgot her. When I heard about the proposed soccer field, I remembered her and ran for office to publicize the danger. I am writing this now to reinforce the memory so that citizens can consider this information the next time there is a proposal to build anything in this volatile but innocent and enchanting area.

What's the update on this? Is the road open yet?

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/

This is why I just started running with a stun gun...

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..

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.

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.
