When the lights went out I thought, they must've fired up the desal plant. Wrong, but what kind of upgrades will SCE need to make once that beast comes on line? Have those costs been include in the city's numbers? Or will we be looking at more brown/blackouts?

Headline a tad misleading as it appears the D.A separates the rollover from her ( allegedly ) DUI crashing into the wreck. Also, she is not pleading anything to the crash that killed the three because she isn't charged in that incident. I realize the Independent wants to attract eyeballs, but some more care would be appreciated. Tricky language, English.

"She got fired as a receptionist from La Cumbre Country Club some years back due to her criminal record."
Aren't personnel records supposed to be confidential?
"For crying out loud, REDUCE THE SPEED LIMIT! !!!"
People drive at the speed at which they are comfortable, if you're not comfortable at 65, drive 55. Personally, I'm more concerned with the many drivers that aren't competent at any speed above walking.
While on the subject of safe driving, the Amber alert sign at Las Positas is warning everybody about using a cell phone while driving. Does the SBPD know about this law? Or the one about a loose animal in the passenger area of a car? What does the SBPD do all day long? They sure aren't making the roads safer.

The city has also fenced of the area between the steps from lot 10 down to Dargan's. I was told by a city worker that a wrought iron fence would soon be installed on the wall between the staircases.

“It’s the responsibility of the person who’s driving,” she said. “People need to make better choices. Period.”
I agree and would add, that includes your friend. I'm sorry she is dead, but she was a willing participant in a stupid activity that went horribly wrong. He needed a better lawyer. There was no way he deserved 14 years for this. DA overreached and got away with it.

So they fired him before his trial? I'd be interested on what grounds. Did he lie about his record when applying for the job? Not in any way defending this schlub, but is Capps's office being set up (or setting itself up) for a wrongful termination suit?
