I guess all of those alternative energy sources are so much hooey. Also the claim that the US willRead More be energy sufficient in a few decades is beginning to look a little suspect.
Sam Chetcuti March 30, 2014 at 08:12 pm
I can't relate this article to others I have been reading. The other articles I am talking about areRead More saying how the US is becoming less energy dependent on foreign oil. If that is the case and the US is extracting so much energy from it's own territory, why then the spike in gas prices?

Because you will continue to pay for it

"PG&E officials said they believe criminal charges are not warranted and that employees didRead More not intentionally violate the pipeline safety law." It does not matter if you intensionally violated it or not. PG&E failed at doing their jobs, breaking the law in the process, and people lost their lives. Money does not matter, $500 million to the families... drop in the bucket to them. They say they used shareholder money, so next year they raise rates to recover from low shareholder earnings. We are the ones paying for this.

omg, the arrogant hypocrisy of the feds.
Following months of "Fight for $15" protests calling on higher wages for fast-food workers, some California McDonald's employees have joined in six lawsuits filed in three states.

This article is such a disappointment. What happened to our local news on Patch?
Chris Corbett March 14, 2014 at 04:41 am
I think it is highly relevant as McD's and other fast food establishments are in South City and onRead More the Peninsula, as well as employ so many herein...just shows how these big corps. do take advantage of the little guy to get ahead. However, in the end, the little guy still needs to wake up and take control of his and her own destiny and quit pointing fingers and become better educated and more marketable--then indisposable to a company!

Just like Carmen's comment above.... most people are professional and the rest are not looking forRead More a job and therefor don't count as 'unemployed'. People are either working their butt off or trying to get an Obama phone !
Ralph Garcia March 9, 2014 at 10:32 am
I have read some really off the wall comments here but to think a DA has anything to do with theRead More unemployment rate is just stupid
Yvonne M March 9, 2014 at 11:16 am
There's a lot of professional people I know who are unemployed and their unemployment has expiredRead More and therefore no longer counted as unemployed.

the good news is that a reputable company bought Safeway; the bad news is they may keep the sameRead More awful management personnel therefore stifling its rebuilding.
Steve Pogue March 8, 2014 at 06:08 pm
Interesting that the price paid for long-established Safeway with 1,305 stores in 20 states is lessRead More than half of what Facebook paid for Whats App. Seems a little out of balance, no?
Gladwyn d'Souza March 10, 2014 at 08:47 am
Only if there is an earthquake or other natural disaster and folks are dependent on the three dayRead More supply at Safeway. Hopefully Albertson closes all these dumps. Remember Safeway's response to selling pink slime- all our products are approved by the USDA.
Event flier for the free tax preparation on March 6, 2014.

Kudos to CVS, I smoked for half a century and quit three years ago, I am one of the lucky ones.
Phillip Bailey February 7, 2014 at 01:46 pm
Mike (above said) How about letting us make our own choices? PC is alive and well at CVS. By theRead More way, what a dumb name for a drug store. I miss Long's. Gee Mike C.V.S. is the acronym and once stood for Consumer Value Store. It now stands for 'Convenience-Value and Service. I personally think CVS should be applauded for this. Smokers just don't SMOKE ... they walk into establishments and sit down near non smokers and the smokers often REEK of cigarette smoke and REEK is an understatement.
Bob Rosenthal February 8, 2014 at 12:20 pm
I'm elated to see the stance CVS has taken. I quit smoking 12 years ago after 60 years of smoking. IRead More could feel a difference almost immediately. I had triple bypass surgery three years ago as a result of smoking. If people want to smoke their brains out I have no problem. Freedom of choice. However, I feel that CVS should also discontinue the sale of all alcoholic beverages. Same goes for Walgreens. How can a drug store sell cigs and alcohol and the sell drugs to combat the effects of same? How can the citizenry allow this to happen and on the other hand vote to ban the sale of guns? Makes no sense to me.
