Finally some common sense!

Maybe he should just resign...

I love Jerry! It was such a crazy proposal. Selling building you own just to lease them back. Insane! (Well, maybe good the the private sector guys who would have bought the buildings.) I hope Jerry cancels the other pending sales, too. I remember when Ronald Reagan suggested selling Federal property in Westwood to raise money. That was another looney scheme.

So now we know why the Coliseum was involved in Raves. They should drop them.

Sorry Steve. Your suggestions would have required altruism or charity on behalf of Whitman, neither of which she possesses, I believe. What could she have done? How about solar panels on all the roofs for everyone in Ventura, California?

No! No more nuclear power in California. There is no way to neutralize the radioactive waste. It is a ticking time bomb for our children and their children for, as is said, seven generations! What can we do instead? How about solar power on every home and business roof? Not out in the desert where the power companies want them because they will remain in control, but right were the power in needed.

No! Just because he is our hometown boy doesn't mean we should vote for him. Steve is a bit of an anti-environmentalist; that means he may be more likely to let polluters off the hook. He is a Republican and will be in charge of enforcing ethics and laws that may hurt businesses. That's something he may not wish to do, being how Republicans are pro-business. We should put a Democrat in as Attorney General. They will be more likely to enforce environmental laws and prosecute crooked businesses.

Yes! Now it is Vernon's turn. This is more fun than television.

Jesus didn't preach prosperity. He taught kindness and to take care of those less fortunate.

The possibilities are endless ;-) (So, that is why he sacked his son...he mistakingly thought his son was responsible for the revenue decline. I suggest that it is more than the recession; that the internet has a lot to do with it, as well. So much is online. It is not so necessary to visit places.)

Good! Hope they stay off.

Well, that new logo looks rather uninspiring. Maybe it was designed by the San Francisco design firm on the ferry boat, Walter Landor and Associates. They often do uninspiring work. Come to look at it, there's not much in that old logo, either.

>>>The Stephens' kangaroo rat, native to Riverside and San Diego counties, has been blamed for halting residential development and freeway construction and increasing the risk of fire because federal law makes it illegal to destroy its habitat. Wow. This is bad? I say this is all good! Long live the Kangaroo Rat!

This is disgusting. I actually know a couple of people that run businesses with shady business practices, so the practice may be more common than thought. I wish these guys would get some jail time in addition to their fines.

If I remember correctly, the head of the company, Stewart, if a devout Republican; so, misleading the public kind of goes with the territory.

That's a stupid long name. Let's snub them and just call it the Pasadena Rose Parade. I hope this newspaper goes along with this suggestion. I have always hated Public/Private partnerships and naming right. Sick.

Children are maturing earlier and earlier. Could it be because of all of the growth hormones they consume in their food? And now we want to add fish that grow twice as fast to the mix? No thank you. Just say No! No! No!
1 reply
No! No! No!!!! Please don't approve this fish! This is terrible! Once we alter our natural food source, there may be no going back to the original. These fish will likely breed with natural fish, forever changing our natural food source. Further, it is cruel to alter an animal's genes to make it grow faster. How would you liked to have gotten to adult size by the time you were 7 years old? If this were ever approved, to my horror, it had better have labels with really big type saying it is genetically modified. Then, maybe, the species will die a fast, consumer driven death, like sBST milk. But, this fish should not be approved!!!

Sounds like Wynn has more sense than the Nevada courts.

Noooooo!!!! This is a very bad idea! Who do we call to protest? We don't need any more short-term solutions to long term problems. This would put us further in debt. If we want to politicize this, I would say that the Republicans would love this idea because it would put money in their rich friend's pockets; but, they should dislike the idea because it will end up costing the state money in the long run. At the very least, this should be put off until after the elections so the new governor could weigh in on it.

It's about time. And, what's with these "log cabin republicans"? Come on over to a party that appreciates you, like the greens or the democrats.

Nice reporting, Sam! This sounds like a city rip-off organized by the city's top families. Can we say "crime family"? It is about time that the businesses in the area stand up and get rid of these guys! Apparently the small number of voters won't do it, because they are all related, for the most part. Sounds like if enough digging take place, some of these guys may wind up in the slammer.

No! They should not do this! A public university should receive public funding (and only public funding). I am very much against these so-called public-private partnerships. Furthermore, $41,000 a year is outrageous. I remember when California's public universities were the envy of the nation; and, they were tuition-free.

So, what's the deal? Does the mayor suspect the city manager of leaking information about the mayor not showing up at city meetings?
