i wonder if the same man that was "jogging" was also "jogging" the day the firstRead More women died???????

Some people in this world really need help !

Needless to say, if you are a woman, don't go hiking alone in this area...scary!

IJ reported last night that the woman (age 50 who "knew Mt Tam well") was campingRead More overnight on Mt Tam with a friend and left the campsite at night (in dark) to return to her car (parked Mt Home Inn) her dog was with her. She *may* have slipped in the dark and fallen to her death? Someone found her dog the next day and called the phone number on the dog tag... reached woman's father. He drove to Mt Home Inn to meet w sheriff ... Question is > where was her camping companion and why did not that person first call sheriff? Sad.

Well, I just proffered what I believed was a reasoned and pragmatic argument and it was dismissedRead More out of hand. Ow! I'll just keep the half dozen or so reasons as to why he will likely be the 2016 Republican presidential candidate in a little box marked "Reality". Back to framing the discussion . . .
novato 3per April 18, 2014 at 01:05 pm
I wouldn't call mention of a RINO candidate a "reasoned argument" by itself. Why dont youRead More share the 6 reasons you believe he'll be nominated.Hispanic cred must be broken down into those who want there to be a United Stated and those who want it absorbed into the 3rd world south if the border. I value cred with Americans not foreign nationals. They put up Jeb Bush and Im done with them- itll be third party constitutional conservative patriots that I support, no matter what, these RINoS are worse than democrats, at least with dems you know what youre getting up front. Ill keep voting my conscience until the Revolution comes. And Allen, they WILL show up for this one.

San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, who intentionally let the statute of limitationsRead More expire without charging PG & E for the deadly San Bruno fire that burned alive 8 people over three years ago is known for overcharging crimes to get ridiculously long sentences against those too poor to hire their own lawyer to fight him. With all the drug user, not seller, prosecution policy changes being recommended by the federal government he still spares no expense to go after ridiculously long sentences for drug possession for their own use crimes. An acquaintance of mine recently had to spend 7 weeks in jail there on a plea bargain for a mere possession charge, a crime that would not have even been charged in San Francisco County. It cost him all his savings and he is HIV positive so in addition to the cost to San Mateo County he is now indigent in San Francisco, so those taxpayers will pay for this absurd prosecution too. Who wins in this? Well in addition to the openly bong smoking bail bondsman getting big fees, apparently Steve Wagstaffe thinks it gets him re-elected. After all, we don't care who cares who gets burned alive as a result of big corporate fraud as long as poor people serve maximum time, right? Kamala Harris doesn't care either and won't prosecute. Should be some big campaign checks in the mail from PG & E next election for these two, or perhaps a cushy board of directors position is in the future! As for me, I'm spending my money anywhere but San Mateo County, and no, I've never bought an illegal drug in my life or been charged with anything but speeding, jaywalking, or failure to yield to an emergency vehicle. I fought and beat the bogus jaywalking rap and with the help of a lawyer, the failure to yield to an emergency vehicle rap. When you are innocent, all it takes is the money to hire your own good lawyer. As for this man's wife's injuries, since the Mill Valley Patch/Bay City News can't be bothered collecting any "facts" not twisted by the prosecutor, I think it is more likely her injuries were caused by her over zealous rescuers than by her husband. Apparently she, like he, would have survived the short 15 foot or less fall into the shallow water and mud unhurt had she not been "saved" - yanked up by her feet. Yet he, a black man, was charged with attempted murder and at least two other crimes. I'll jump off the bridge at that spot, as long as no motorists will try to save me, if the'll recommend the judge reduce the punishment to probation and psychiatric evaluation. Was he even evaluated by a psychiatrist? I guess nobody cares.

I believe Panoramic is in Muir Woods Park, a part of the Tamalpais Planning Area and in theRead More unincorporated area of Marin County, not Mill Valley.

What am I missing... "A few hours later, a body was found" Who was this?

First, good thing he didn't kill someone. Second, that's why most states much poorer that CaliforniaRead More install guard rails.
NovatoRes April 2, 2014 at 12:00 pm
The fact that he had a condition that would make him susceptible to disorientation is a huge riskRead More factor for driving - especially someone his age. Hopefully this will move more to have "the talk" with aging family members that its time to retire the car keys. If not for their sake, for the sake of others on the road. My condolences to the family.
Rick Voorhees April 2, 2014 at 08:58 am
I'm going to make sure I'm not near you Craig when I drive... I hate to tell ya your wrong on thisRead More issue..Cell phones are the new hazards of the road now. There are some bad drivers but when you have a bad driver texting or talking you have yourself a hazard on the road period....As far as eating, brushing your teeth well that's just as bad....
Al Nymous April 2, 2014 at 09:30 am
....And the state is cashing in on all the citations for cell phones when the real problem isRead More distracted driving. So, how long do we allow the arm of the law to reach into your life? If law is written that distracted driving is a violation, then that gives an officer infinite reasons to pull you over.
Rick Voorhees April 2, 2014 at 09:49 am
Hey, the moral of the story is focus on driving the freaking car and pay attention so you aren'tRead More distracted. Then you don't have to worry about the cops.. Common sense here...

The real question is why are they removing trees!?! I don't care what kind they are. We need everyRead More tree out there. Btw, CalTrans needs to replace all the trees they killed along the roadway here in Novato when putting in the extra lanes. You can still see them , tall beautiful trees... Dead.
novato 3per March 31, 2014 at 04:50 pm
As far as Im concerned they can take every last eucalyptus.

We are friends with the owners, and this is very accurate with the exception that the damage cost isRead More about 10x what was originally estimated. Truly amazing what 10-15 minutes of a fire can do.....such a good reminder to have escape routes planned with your family and to document (video) your belongings.

That is wallet and credit card theft, not "identity theft" which happens in computers.
Concerned Citizen March 30, 2014 at 09:53 am
Lou correct. Identity theft is way more insidious. those that destroy other peoples lives should beRead More made to make their victims whole. It is time for a little practical "eye for an eye" justice. Imagine when they find out it will take 10 years at minimum wage on a road gang or whatever else criminals should be doing to pay society back for their misdeeds instead of being released early for overcrowding bcause there are no real consequences for breaking the law.
Jerome J Ghigliotti Jr March 30, 2014 at 03:12 pm
Is it really a criminal offense if someone is so stupid as to leave their wallet in their car? WeRead More do have pockets in clothing now. I did not read anything about the car window being broken either.

If this was a dead , barely legal 19 year old girl at the hands of her almost pedophileRead More "lover" nearly 3 times her age I think the story would be generating more controversy. Is it just dismissed because its a gay thing?

Angela , looks like your comment is deleted. Sorry about the loss of your friend.

Maybe the MVPD is issuing lots of crime wave warnings due to reduced services due to reduced fundingRead More by state and local authorities. The real threat to high home prices is not a high tech bubble, but rather break-ins, burglaries, crime, and fear of crime. Maybe the MVPD should find a way to increase services related to these issues, such as bringing back patrolling. The empty squad cars with speed guns is not that effective.

our elected officials continue their totally failed war on drugs because it is such a big moneyRead More maker for all of them. Most drugs need to be decriminalized and many need to be made legal. The failed policies by our government are directly to blame for the out of control problems with drugs. Our controlling lawmakers think they can control drug use through laws. THEY HAVE BEEN PROVEN WRONG AT EVERY TURN YET THEY CONTINUE WITH THE SAME POLICIES. That is called insanity but the game they play is with our money. They have created huge government to waste money on. All a failure yet they continue. We must find a way to take back control from the now many in politics who continue to flat our lie to us all in the name of protecting us from ourselves. Insanity? YES! Feinstein's comments yesterday regarding her personal concern about legalizing marijuana tell us all we need to know about an out of touch old guard government. I don't care what Feinstein thinks and we need to get rid of all of the politicians like her who enrich themselves at taxpayer expense while working on their own agenda. And you can't blame just old men as CA has been represented by mostly women for some time now. Different sex... same out of touch manipulating focus. Change is coming.

There was nothing "broken" about our immigration laws when LBJ threw all of them out, withRead More the bath water. The Bracero program provided needed agricultural workers, and it worked from 1945 to 1964. The US still makes legal immigrants of through five years of hoops, while anyone who sneaks in gets a "Get-Out-Of-Jail-Free" pass. Anyone and everyone who entered illegally should be returned to their country of origin. Asylum is afforded to anyone who fears return to their country of origin; that applies to 98% of the world's population, including imported criminals. There are more exceptions than rules. And do not speak out or the political correctness police will arrest YOU.

Ever since moving here in 2010, I have wondered why Californians have such little respect for theRead More earth so many vehemently fight to "protect." California highways are some of the trashiest I have ever driven on.

California has a large population of foreigners who give a rat's ass about the beauty of our land,Read More they are only here to take benefits and send send tax free income to their home country. California also has liberal policies that create irresponsible selfish people. I'm all in favor of steeper penalties and better enforcement of litter laws.
