This project has been delayed since the 80's. In 1989, Measure D was passed by the voters. The funds for freeway widening were since hijacked by city officials for other pet projects that actually constricted traffic flow instead of improving it.

Now Schneider wants to take these funds again for more bulbouts, curbouts and traffic constricting projects? No thanks.

Schneider says city traffic will get worse if these funds are not used for local projects. Doesn't she realize that traffic flows like water? Has anyone been on Foothill Rd. when the freeway has a bad accident on it? The more congestion on the freeway, the more traffic gets diverted to city streets.

Finish the freeway widening and be done with it. NOW!

Anytime a minority is stopped or questioned, it must be racial profiling, right? I've been stopped too late at night. But since I'm not a minority, it's OK.

Like what? He didn't know how onerous this process was going in? He's an experienced developer. If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen. No other developers get a break on the TOT, why should Caruso have expected anything different. Now he's back in project approval hell. That's just too bad. He gets no sympathy from me.

It's a puzzle to me why Dems support public employee unions as well.

Caruso really blew it here. He had an approved project. Government regulation and bureaucracy ALWAYS gets worse and never gets better. He should have run with his approved plans when he had the chance, but he blew it with his greed and held out for perks from the city.

Tabatha, obviously you haven't kept up with the news. Lois Lerner's emails have been found. The conspiracy was worse than we thought.

Oh, you are so wrong discoboy. Water service is a monopoly and not subject to market forces such as supply and demand. During the last drought, water conservation measures were actually so effective, they had to raise rates even further to account for the fact that conservation measure so effective that revenue dropped below projections.

Because you didn't agree with the verdict, you assume prospective jurors need additional training. Volunteer for jury duty then. You can make those difficult decisions for yourself instead of being a Monday morning quarterback.
