CORRECT RON.....you and I can see the need for it, why can't the powers that be? Well typically,Read More just as with the fiasco regarding the impounding of cars driven by Illegals with no license or insurance....well it is fine to take cars from others, but the minorities would have no way to get to work and it would be a hardship etc. etc. etc...Oh now there is a great big deterrent...NOT !!! Is it any wonder at all that things are the way they are and just get worse....no consequences to their actions and City Hall is protecting them, regardless of what Cathy White and her Liberal associates would have everyone believe.

How can he still be President? About as bad as both Bush's and Reagan and Ford and Carter andRead More Johnson and Truman and FDR combined. I loved JFK, though, and Caroline lied about Obama. Figures.

Marin County has the highest incidence of melanoma in the Bay Area.  (Photo: Patch Archive)

I think this is due to a much higher rate (than in other parts of the country) of people who canRead More both afford and who do get proactive, regular dermatology check ups. Marin has a very high standard of living compared to most other areas of our country. In many other areas people either do not have the mean$ to or do not take the initiative to get their skin checked regularly. Just ask around and I think you would be surprised at how many folks you know have ever been to a dermatologist. Many of us grew up with little to no information on the negative effects of sun worshiping. And we still live in a society where a 'nice tan' is somehow perceived as a fashion statement or as attractive. How absurd when you think about it. Beaches still full of people baking themselves in the sun. When you do get checked regularly it is very common for the dermatologist to have certain spots checked via biopsy or the like. This is how this problem is detected early so it can be addressed. Not everyone can afford to pay for these expensive medical procedures. Please educate your children to the harms of sun exposure so that they do not have to deal with this deadly killer.

and no mention of the high use of tanning salons in our area. a known carcinogen.

I can lower the skin cancer rate by half overnight. Bus the 90,000 undocumented ILLEGALS from theRead More border to Marin. Send them to Tiburon, Belvedere and Ross. Problem solved. See how easy that was.

Come have a wonderful $10,000.00 dinner with the worst President since Woodrow Wilson. YouRead More Californians are dumb enough to be his main donor state. Lol.
Michael July 23, 2014 at 02:00 pm
these elitists think nothing of impacting other people's lives when they fly into town, close blocksRead More and blocks on their own say, block numerous roads etc. The security THEY have afforded themselves (all on the taxpayers dime) is truly absurd and frankly it is out of control. But most people seem willing to tolerate this behavior (or just don;t give a damn) so the politicians see that as a green light to continue their abusive ways. How dare them create their own royalty. I am so sick of Obama and wish he would stay the hell out of the bay area. He is the worst president we have ever had.

Jan Brewer Orders Full Review Of Drawn-Out Execution Reuters Posted: 07/23/2014 8:49 pm EDT Updated:Read More 07/23/2014 9:59 pm EDT Print Article ********************************************** Wait, we kill mainly for revenge because it is known that the death penalty does not deter crime and in fact is more expensive than prison for life. We are nuts to put people to death but worry about the compassion of how this death is administrated! Somewhere I read "thou shall not kill" but never said it alright to kill if you commit a horrible crime! It is also true that the experience of the death penalty has been that we have put innocent people to death! The problem with the death penalty including those cited above is that killing people makes us just as barbaric as these criminals especially when used just for revenge! Why do tough on crime love the death penalty? Is this a form of pandering like when Republicans pander to the Christian-Right that have us believe they are fighting for the unborn and fighting against the "immorality" of being Gay?

The future can be bright for anyone that is willing improve themselves to becoming more marketableRead More in the job market. That means getting a good education, whether it be College or Trade School. I taught for 18 years and I was disappointed in the effort of some of my students. They wanted good grades without doing the work necessary to achieve good grades. I also see Latinos (before you decide to crucify me understand that I am Latino as well!) who want better paying jobs without the warranted skills. I'm all for better pay for it needs to come from the individual, not the government!
Manny Reynoso July 24, 2014 at 06:18 am
Opportunities for better pay are created when an individual betters themselves educationally. It isRead More the individual, not the government that will lead to better pay!

Of course the survey showed improvement. These people get paid more than any other county for theRead More same jobs.

“One of the most effective ways to measure our progress is to ask our own employees howRead More we’re doing,” Peterson said. One of the most effective ways to measure your progress towards what, what your employees think? These people work in one of the nicest places on earth. And they have government jobs that provide benefits few others have like retirement. If they don't like their jobs let them leave. But few leave don't they.

The HIPAA law prevents revealing the name of the Tiburon man, so authorities have to withhold it,Read More and it would be illegal for Patch to report it.

HIPAA only covers the hospital releasing that information, no? I don't think it prohibits policeRead More reports from becoming public information. Am I wrong?

And what a bunch of B.S, and they are both macho idiots. 1. If someone is on your tail and wants toRead More get by, all you gotta do is slow down, and they can get by you near anywhere. Let em go by and good riddance. Don't speed up and or slow down or get righteous 2. So, the guy in front of you is jerking you around and won't let you by, no matter how much you tailgate or crawl up their rear end. Get over it. Neither one of these bozos should have a gun handy. too many hormones and too little sense. Turn and go away from the gun, keep your car out of my garage...... Homeowner sounds like he messed with the guy following, and the guy following also went overboard. Chasing someone into their home? Anyone with half a brain should expect some consequences. Personally, I don't much like guns, especially assault/rapid fire weapons, which have no place in "self" defense, and, most folks WILL defend their homes and family, with whatever they have, and no, we do not need to have assault weapons or carry them everywhere we go, nor do we need to blast, kill, shoot, destroy, obliterate, etc, anyone or anything which does not believe whatever we happen to believe...... And, we are ALL lunatics.
school bus ninja July 19, 2014 at 07:42 pm
Blah, blah, blah. Everyone second guessing what happened. Shoot him here, shoot him there. UnlessRead More you have been in a situation like this, what you would do is pure speculation. The man that was shot lost most of his rights to Life, Liberty and The Pursuit of Happiness as soon as he entered another man's dwelling. To the others that hate guns, too bad. The decision about gun ownership is not yours. Get over it. There are many things I hate about tofu eating Marin liberal mushheads that live in a 15 mile bubble that think they know what the world is about. I have to live with you. Most of you moved to California from another state so you could ruin it. Go back to where you came from.
