I like how our judicial system rules (and other major laws and policies) are decided by voters whoRead More couldn't find Iraq on a globe, can't balance their checkbooks, believe the world is 10,000 years old, and think 48÷2(9+3) = 2.

The laws are not decided by votes, unless it is an initiative, and then like Prop 8- it will beRead More overturned by a bunch of liberals .The Congress or Legislature writes and votes on the laws- the people vote these guys in, but not the measures themselves. This is a Republic, not a democracy. So before being critical of others, look in the mirror.

I refer to this as the illegal alien anti-deportation act. Identity theft? No problem, noRead More deporation. Welfare fraud? Please be nice in the future, etc.

I like with Marcus. We recently drove up to Oregon to look at some colleges and visit friends. WeRead More actually saw a Sign along the I 5 that said welcome to the state of Jefferson. Wimpy though the sign was it smacked of people voted against their own best interests.

Totally off the subject: But why is this online newsletter called the AgouraHills Patch? I thoughRead More this was Imperial Beach.
Penny Arévalo July 21, 2014 at 01:49 pm
This story got posted statewide, as it's a statewide story. But for commenting purposes, you areRead More directed back to the original Patch which first posted it, which is in Agoura Hills.

this boy will do nothing . look at the republican party, when they were in what jobs did they bringRead More in and stayed ? that party shut down many state hospitals, so now we have sick folks running around, and what have they done for the VETS that come back from war ? then who the hell is this boy ? no one in the BAY AREA and up the coast do not know of this boy . Oh well Jerry will do 4 more years and retire if he does not die before then .

Kashkari will get smoked, it doesn't matter what he says or does. I will not vote for Brown but heRead More will win going away. Brown's legacy will end up being not enough water storage, a high speed rail system that goes nowhere and leaves a huge hole in the budget, the highest taxes and least friendly place to do business in the country, and a bankrupt fiscal situation with massive unfunded state employee benefits and pensions.

but who is this boy ? still no one has seen him in the north part of the state , no one has seen himRead More in Clearlake or Lakeport, Ukiah, Eureka area , so who is this guy . it is June 11th and where is this guy ?

Measure F save HMB's historic down town bridge Won, by a large margin. Thank You Half Moon BayRead More voters for sending such a clear message to the five City Council members that lied to us over and over again this past two years as they wasted over $1,000,000 of our hard earned taxpayers money on high priced lawyers, consultants, trying to destroy a perfectly repairable bridge.

Really Brian...Really? What I have written and posted here is factual and factually correct, inRead More every regard. Please, do tell us, with your vast wealth of facts, a) where I am wrong & b) what lie(s)? The only lies I have been privy to are from our elected, and that does not engender trust. They, collectively, have lied to us every time they opened their mouths on this bridge matter - every single time they stated that all options were on the table after February 21, 2012. You seem to have a very consistent pattern of going personal when the facts of an issue don't jive with with your opinion. Further, when you call others out, bringing the rhetoric you accuse others of using, and throw grenades, you never back up your assertions with any facts or documentation and what's worse is you have yet to provide workable alternatives - to any of those you attack. How about you attack an issue for a change, instead of your neighbors? How about you provide something, anything constructive for a change? Is it too much to ask that our elected perform their due diligence Before they take action? Is it too much to ask that our elected gather all the facts before taking action? Is it too much to ask our elected to be forthright and honest with their constituents? Let's see what you got, Brian. Here's your chance...

While we wait for Brian to gather his documentation and ask current Council members how he shouldRead More respond here, perhaps I can use this opportunity to provide interested readers with a little more information to support Vote Yes of F and No on E. As of the last City scoping meeting this past March, this City Council had spent over $500,000.00 (of our money) on their goal of demolishing and replacing our Main Street Bridge (and that does not include our new CEQA/NEPA team). Meanwhile over in Woodside, we see an incredibly similar circumstance, where Caltrans has rated their 5 bridges (3 vehicular + 2 equestrian) as 'functionally obsolete' and their response: "Woodside council agrees to structural analysis of bridges", http://www.almanacnews.com/news/2014/03/12/woodside-council-agrees-to-structural-analysis-of-bridges What a contrast in leadership; Woodside actually embraces the idea of uncovering All the facts Before they take action. For more information on this June's Election readers can go here, http://hmbcity.com/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=84&Itemid=91 For some additional information, perhaps these 2 pieces might help:http://talkaboutwidget.hmbreview.com/topic.php?t=9467&c=8&d=m & https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzAxrMUGU7U5T2dHU3NTSlFWSW8/edit?pli=1 I'd like to thank Brian for the opportunity to delve deeper into this matter. We will continue to wait for any factual response and supporting documentation Brian may afford us here to support his claims of rhetoric and lying.

I see that links provided are not just point and click here, so that will require the reader to copyRead More and paste the web addresses provided (one at a time of course) into you address bar and hit Enter to see and read the pieces. It is easy to do, but unfortunately one additional step. If I knew how to make it simpler I would.

I truly am sorry for the losses that Mr. Pack has had to deal with. However, raising the amount ofRead More liability a physician can be sued for is downright crazy. As the president of the Civil Justice Association of California said, if this bill were to pass there would be an astronomical number of frivolous lawsuits filed. While some of these lawsuits might have merit, I would wager that more than a few would be filed by people looking to make a quick buck. Even with the malpractice laws as they are now, there is a staggering number of suits being filed which are doing nothing but clogging the justice system. Is it any wonder that the majority of college students are not willing to go into debt to get a medical education, especially if they know that all of their hard work can be wiped out with one frivolous malpractice suit.

Lower the awards and revoke their license. Anything else hurts everyone else.

I would support a ballot like this ONLY if it included a random test for elected lawmakers

May I suggest that a clause be added clearly defining where the marijuana smoking may take place. IRead More am making this suggestion because there are a couple houses in my neighborhood where the air outside reeks of marijuana smoke, (one very near an elementary school) so thick that you can barely breathe.

Would she vote again to use roughly $1,000,000 of ratepayer funds to buy open space to preserveRead More views and then bury pipes under it? Oh, and that ratepayer money was used to subsidize MWSD which had no money to contribute to the purchase. I am not sure how that is exactly legal. She was on the Save the Strip committee. Conflict? http://savethestrip.org/aboutus.html
