Here's two things to check on a California red light cam ticket: 1. Check to see if it is a SnitchRead More Ticket, the fake/phishing camera tickets California police send out to bluff car owners into ID'ing the actual driver. Snitch Tickets say, at the top, "Courtesy Notice-This is not a ticket," and you can ignore them! Skeptical? Google: Snitch Ticket. 2. Were you down in the LA area? Even a REAL red light camera ticket from ANY city (or the sheriff) in LA County can be ignored, as the LA courts do not report ignored camera tickets to the DMV. This was revealed in LA Times articles in 2011. Skeptical? Google: Red light camera no consequence.

Louie Sanchez and Marvin Norwood are the kind of tribal animals who can never be rehabilitated.Read More They can never be allowed back into society, not ever again. But some Rose Bird bleeding-heart leftist judge will "give them a second chance". You elected the leftists who appointed them. I did not. My deepest sympathies for Mr. Stow and his family, sincerely.

My next door neighbor Bob cheats on his taxes. Can I get an acronym so I can turn him in too?

I appreciate your comment Jeremiah and I don't think I could've said it better myself, so I won't beRead More redundant. Except to repeat only one thing-- This is why Mr Melhman: "the age limit is based on the medical risk profile that would endanger both the employee and the public he is tasked with serving. The likelihood of sudden debilitating circumstances increases with age and these jobs have a stress level which can precipitate it." I'm still of working age yet from day to day I have bizarre health issues pop up. I run abt 3-5 miles per day, 5-6 days a week. I'm in excellent health. I'm also clever and a bright individual. Yet I've begun having pains in places, and I'm also getting forgetful. My eyesight is decreasing. I get stressed easier than I used to. Because this is our natural human aging process. we age. we just do. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now, in reading this article, I didn't read, nor did I realize we were discussing being let go at a certain age. I thought we were talking about applying for the job, where can age limit is set due to medical and statistical averages. So I agree with you, I do not think a person should be let go the day they turn 62. Most others do also, that;s why we are offered pensions at particular ages for incentive. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Lastly, your point using vote vs age limits is like comparing dogs to elephants, and completely irrelevant. We're talking about a person's capability to perform a certain type of job.

**** And I bet SouthernBelle knows something many women and men have forgotten - it's a whole lotRead More more fun acting out the roles when men act like men and women act like women and we all play the game and enjoy life as equal but thankfully different! **** Any good man who values his life knows women are superior to men and don't argue with them because even if you win, you lose!! :-) **** hahahahahahahahahaha!!! Yep, exactly how I feel. There are many many careers out there to choose from. Maybe a girl's passion is to put on 100 lbs of equipment and run up stairs to fight a fire and carry out a 250 lb man- but I'm guessing more aren't than are interested in that. But I'll tell you what, if my daddy's house catches fire and some gal runs up his stairs she best be able to carry him down because HIS life depends on it. And if she can't, then her taking a job she's unable to perform is just wrong.

one more thing--Mr Melhman, Not sure how long you've been in the area or if you are familiar with LARead More county hiring for Police and fire. But over the past 10 yrs they have had to lower their physical ability testing, as well as their hiring requirements because they had to account for women's physical abilities, and not enough men or women were passing the orals due to prior drug use (even trying it once counts), criminal records (DUI's fall in this), etc. This is also why the quality is lower than it used to be. We haven't seen nothing yet! It's abt to get a whole lot worse because no one wants police officer jobs anymore. so sad how we treat them!

Wait, you posted a day or two ago that teenagers weed eating or using some type of metal device setRead More the fire off. Now your reporting the cause is unknown? Which is it? I get NSO reports through nixle.com and know it was teens dong some kind of yard work that started the blaze. Please, dont do confusing journalism, tell the facts.
Susan C. Schena July 3, 2014 at 09:05 am
Mark, sorry, you're right. It was really late when I wrote that last night. Technically, it's listedRead More as "under investigation." But I just removed the line to avoid confusion - thanks for pointing that out!

This is exactly why I don't help women anymore. There have been several times in my life, when I'veRead More helped a woman who should never have been in a violent relationship with a thug in the first place. And every time, they've eventually put themselves back into the same situation. Going forward, rather than help, my response will be to laugh. These tramps are not worth it.

I think 'Something' might have scared these women either to death, or enough to make them fall, asRead More in Marie Christine Sanner's case. After David Paulides' latest book, and the 3 subsequent ones, I no longer look at these types of incidents with a casual dismissal. Too many people I have known, including myself, have had some pretty terrifying experiences with, again, 'Something' that could not be seen, but was definitely either watching and following, or making very obvious noises in surrounding foliage. This includes rocks dropping straight out of the sky on a few occasions. Spontaneous branches breaking, or even trees falling nearby. I would love to hear from anyone who has these types of encounters from Deer Park to Mt. Tam to Pine Mountain. I have even talked about it with complete strangers on the trail at times who very much agreed that something very odd was happening at times in the upper watershed lands between Fairfax and Bolinas ridge.

William, perhaps there are Native American stories about the area.

More good advise? Dont rush to judgement until all of the facts come out. Just because he wasRead More accused, doesnt mean he is guilty. Im not defending rape in any manner, but, articles like this immediately convict people without due process.
Bubba six pack June 11, 2014 at 09:38 am
I'm not defending this guy either, but why does his name get published and not his accusers? ThisRead More guys reputation is damaged in the court of public opinion by a simple statement from an anonymous victim who will keep her reputation intact, when the real crime was drinking with someone you don't know. 2:30 AM sounds like a bar closing pickup, and everyone knows the chicks get prettier at closing time. Smarten up, honey. Guys go to bars to pick up chicks, and going home with one and drinking until you pass out is like pulling down your pants yourself.
