Putting veterans to work, in good paying careers, should be important to all Americans including ourRead More county supervisors. Construction jobs are one thing. Construction careers are another. The Building Trades Unions offer careers for veterans through the Helmets To Hardhats Program. These jobs provide fully paid apprentice programs, medical, dental, vision, retirement, and most importantly wages that can allow a person to live a middle class lifestyle. Supervisor Don Knabe is wrong not to support PLAs in his county. PLAs require workers to live in the area where the work is being done, not from out of state (or out of country). PLAs require workers to be trained to do their job correctly (apprentice programs) so that shoddy workmanship doesn't occur. Most importantly employees covered by a PLA are paid a decent wage with benefits so that they don't have to rely on the county to provide them with welfare or Medi-Cal

It's about time, give them what they earned from their criminal activities. It appears to be openRead More hunting season on white collar political crooks. Angela Spaccia, former Bell assistant city manager under Robert Rizzo, was sentenced to 11 years in prison for her significant role in bilking millions out of the working-class city she served.

More politically protected heads roll, now the rest of the GANG needs to be sentenced. Irwindale'sRead More former finance director pleaded no contest to conflict of interest for his role in spending money on lavish trips to New York City. The judge ordered Abe De Dios to pay $5,300 in restitution to the city, $4,000 in fines. He will be serving a three years probation. Under his plea deal, De Dios was also banned from ever running for elected office.

Once more the city of Bell is back in the news headlights, Now the sentencing of it's former managerRead More and assistant manager received prison terms of nearly 12 years a piece. It was a long time coming for these white color criminals, it's former police chief escaped punishment but has agreed to return $200,000 in a plea deal for him to avoid prison himself. In the end each of the accused turned on one another to save their own necks, 2014 has been a rewarding year so far with hopes of more political criminal's being exposed and brought to justice.

Getting paid for doing the wrong thing is bad
Larry S March 30, 2014 at 04:05 pm
I agree...but Congress is defying that standard...as is a contractor, three attorneys, two doctors,Read More and six mechanics I have hired in the past ten years.

Boo hoo.. I can't believe civil rights advocates and their thought that their moving mothers andRead More grandmothers away from their families!!! They would never be in that situation if they walked in the legal path of life. How absurd to say you are moving a mother or grandmother, they are criminals who are in jail. These civil rights people are idiots. Jail is supposed to be a humbling, inconvenient, and lesson learning place to not make people wanna come back. What's next, cable TV and nightly deliveries of gourmet eats? Maybe massages for inmates due to being locked in a cell? We as Americans give to many rights and privelages to our criminals. And cry for more!

Nicely put Daleford and I agree 100%.
Larry S March 20, 2014 at 01:56 pm
I don't often agree with Daleford but this time you are right. It's JAIL!!! It's not supposed to beRead More a Co-op, a nurturing community or even a scaled down Motel 6. When one makes the decision to break the law, one relinquishes one's rights to live by society's rules and at that point criminals have to live by the rules imposed on them. The old adage still works here...if you can't do the time, don't do the crime.

Virgil... Your comment is priceless. I wonder how this reasoning escaped those that came up withRead More the solution to get our mail. Your right....Geezzzzz!

Un Duh!!! The suspended delivery was only for the burn areas...
Richard King February 28, 2014 at 10:39 pm
Too bad the officials that posted the announcement were not clear. "Areas" is not anRead More official location designation and is not to be assumed by those making "official" announcements. Our mail was delivered late in the afternoon and our postman commented that several people on his route were surprised and happy to see him.

Covered California has been a godsend for me. Anthem Blue Cross is raising premiums of SeniorsRead More because it's a group whose premiums they are allowed to raise. Therefore, as of Apr. 1 my premium was being raised 24% to $620 a month. I am retired, on a fixed income. A year ago I was paying $420 a month for my health insurance. I contacted a broker and got enrolled in Covered California. I will have a new policy with Blue Shield, better and more comprehensive coverage than I had with Anthem and better deductibles and my monthly premium will only be $355. Thank you, President Obama! I knew that voting for you was a good choice.

Excellent comments Rep. Chu. Our president knows what this country needs. Now the congress eitherRead More needs to join with him and help him get things done, or get out of his way.

Right on, Ralph!

The most westerly north-south trail is known as Garcia, or Mexican Canyon. This trial starts at theRead More Los Angeles County Fire number 97, and continues to the top of the ridge. The U.S. Forest Service was the prime user of this trail for fire watch and access to the ridge and land above.

In a outreach to residents near the entrance of Colby hiking trail and beyond, another issue parkingRead More permits for residents residing inside the exclusion street parking zone. Restricted parking time periods and days will have to be posted on metal signs attached to steel pipes through out the restricted parking area, after this can be agreed to by resident's and Glendora city hall. What hasn't been fully explained to all who signed a petition, only two parking passes will be given to each house address with in the parking restricted zone, you may request a maximum of two more per house address and pay a fee of $5.00 per each extra pass. Further paperwork will be required for all the parking passes assigned to each address.

Once more changes are taking place at the entrance of the Garcia Trail, ever since the January 2014Read More Colby Fire the entire trail is off limits and closed. The city of Glendora followed through with it's threat to restrict parking any where near the entrance to the Garcia Trail entrance, why it's closed and maybe for several years? Why waste the Glendora staff time and money to purchase signs and materials needed to install these out of step signs along with wasting employees time installing them? This appears to be another wasted time and money effort on the city mangers part to look like he is doing something? How many time does one reinvent a round wheel?
