CalTrans has gotten too rich and too powerful. It is time to redirect their funding to competitive bidding with hard and fast contracts with time contingencies. The opportunity cost of lost time and decreased safety generated by these never ending freeway projects should be figured into the construction plans. They were able to rebuild the damage to the LA freeway system after the last earthquake, under budget and ahead of schedule with simple economic incentive. How about it?

On Bummer-to-Bummer Traffic Guaranteed

I know its a long shot, but you can buy motion detect actuated wild game cameras that would prove the forced entry as long as you disguised it so the criminals missed it. Was your insurance company perhaps Allstate? They denied and underpaid many claims after the Tea Fire.

You can call your service provider, and register a 911 response address to your cell phone. If you have not already done so, I suggest you make haste.

On State Urged to Fix Fatally Flawed 9-1-1 System

No on 1. If it passes, your tax dollars will be used to repair the SF and LA water pipes, an expense most assuredly the responsibility of the rate payers in those cities. If it passes, it will further the criminal miss handling of water by the state allowing Bureau of Reclamation to accidentally dump SB water down the drain, mind your own business we know what we are doing. We actually have enough water in the state, it largely flows out the Sacramento River in the winter during storms. We need off stream storage to catch this water so that storage does not conflict with flood control. The two dams proposed are a start, but the operational math is flawed. Jerry is a liar, and we should not trust him. Send them back to the drawing board; no on 1.

People who are slaves to fashion deserve to look like clowns.

There is no form of life lower than someone who does not pay subcontractors. Run them out of town on a rail. Don't forget the tar and feathers.

On S.B. Contractors Shafted by S.F. Builder?

Comb should begin legal proceedings against the Bureau of Reclamation, sue them for being asleep at the switch. Meanwhile, when it comes time to vote for the State's water bond, remember how idiotic, inefficient and incapable the Bureau of Reclamation has been in this case and extrapolate to a case where the state is handling all the water. What a bunch of bozos.

Hey reality check, take your religion out into the world and do something about it. How about you start with volunteering at an adoption facility, or perhaps you could be a foster parent. What do you say?

In Placer County, the PCWA included in their emergency water declaration of April 11, 2014 a clause that new construction of SFR could continue but that NO OUTDOOR WATER USE at the new homes would be allowed until the emergency was lifted. Pretty progressive for a bunch of right wingers. Concrete trucks carry their own water by the way.
The writing is on the wall with water in CA now. Ever heard of sustainability?

On Appeals Pour In, but Montecito Has No Water to Spare

I would love to see the right wing religious anti abortion folks actually practice their religion and perhaps apply themselves to doing something positive, like adopting and orphan. It is always easier to complain than to work out and implement a solution. And didn't SCOTUS apply a 100 foot buffer zone for military funerals? And don't the justices enjoy a buffer zone of similar size outside the court?
