he just orchestrated a $45.9 million bond in march and now he's running out the door.... paymentsRead More are $2.6 million in 2014 then $3.6 million/year after that.... ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- they plan to pay the bond debt by leasing the police station to themselves...which is the equivalent of paying your car payment by charging yourself rent for using the kitchen... http://emma.msrb.org/EA585579-EA457022-EA852975.pdf

Jay is right, We can no longer pump water offshore, Toilet to tap is inevitable if we want toRead More continue to live here in the desert. And with the Sierra club shut down now would be a good time to apply for more permits to build De-Sal plants.

Ed, I don't think it was Sierra Club .. it was Coastkeeper and Surfrider that doubled the cost ofRead More the desal .. the mitigation for dumping salt water into salt water ... we need major loser pays legislation to stop these illegitimate suits .. I also think it is totally inefficient to have so many water districts in the county, Encinitas has 2 districts within its borders, maybe 3 (Leucadia ?) They all have resources and duplicate each other ... We should have a single county authority with representatives from each community. The savings would be incredible.

This is a great reversal ruling by the court! Like Lisa said above, the criminals don't have toRead More have a permit to carry a gun and you never know when you need to be ready to defend yourself and/or your family. The second amendment was intended just for that, as well as being able to repel a government out of control and forgets that they are "of the people, by the people, and for the people" and not a kingdom of their own.

Interesting how different people interpret this --- yes, a journalist was one of the people whoRead More brought the action to the courts --- but the ruling clearly applies to all who citizens can meet the standards set forth by the broad definition of the concealed carry law (not by the narrow view of Sheriff Gore or other Demi-Gods) --- I applaud the 9th for finally getting one right ...

This is because of the states catch and release program. Some extremely liberal idiotic judges feelRead More we have too many prisoners and or California prisons. We also have an extremely powerful prison guard union that is preventing us from putting prisoners in private prisons. This is a very selfish act from the prison Guard unions. So because of this, they are doing more local time, which is overloading or local jails. This is also a cause for increased crime. I guess the only proper solution would be to arm yourself At your home, and let the corner do the paperwork.
Jon Hall February 10, 2014 at 07:06 am
Stop putting people in jail for smoking, holding, and growing a certain herb and the overcrowdingRead More would go away immediately --- and there might even be the resources available to actually prevent real crimes against society ...
