JJJS: Happiness trumps reality.

THANK YOU Carl, for bringing awareness to this very important issue. Westboro Baptist is not aRead More danger to anyone, truly. The mentality of Rick Warren and Saddleback Church, however, IS a danger. He puts a "pretty face" on the infliction of harm on people created in God's image. The sad thing is that many good people of Orange County and even around the world have put their faith in this man who inflicts so much harm on the LGBTQ community. Just ask the LGBTQ people in Uganda and Russia. A brother to Franklin Graham; a shame to Billy Graham.

@kaitee if you take early release that counts as your seventh period so you are still in threeRead More classes a day so six classes. If you take late start that counts as your first period of the day but you still have the next two periods and seventh period so still six classes. Do not tell me my argument is flawed when your math is completely incorrect

Hey mimi- not a snow job at all- I'm trying to figure out the squirrels on the neighbors roof sideRead More trip is all. It caught my attention- on a nationwide site where not much catches my attention anymore. A good thing. I like someone who just doesn't write the same old stuff I've heard a million times. I like when someone is quirky and leads down paths that some readers breeze past, but I say--- hey- what was that about? I just don't read and give platitudes. I read and ask questions if I find it interesting, for I want to know more. And--I found this interesting. Thanks Brian.

Roberto if the association negotiated with the DA for their pay and benefits you might be right butRead More the DA does not have a seat at the negotiation between the County and the association. The association also represents public defenders and county counsel attorneys. The Deputy DA's have an interest in the election because the current DA has embraced early release of prisoners instead if working to make sure they serve their sentences and has pulled back from gang enforcement in the county. It is really hard to sacrifice time away from family working nights and weekends prosecuting people who are going to get out early even if convicted. It is hard to look victim's of crime in the face and tell them nothing is going to happen to the person who victimized them. It is hard to watch people who might be able to be rehabilitated if we could keep them in custody long enough to dry them out steal time and again to support a habit. The association endorsed Mike Hestrin because he actually wants to propose ideas and work to change things instead of accepting what Sacramento in their infinite wisdom imposes on us.

Timotheus you said, " the current DA has embraced early release of prisoners instead ifRead More working to make sure they serve their sentences and has pulled back from gang enforcement in the county." This is a lie. The current DA is not happy with early releases. Not only that but once a criminal is in jail the criminal's sentence is no longer the responsibility of the DA. The DA is not responsible for early releases. Should Hestrin be elected he will not have ANY additional authority over and above what the current DA has to order the Sheriffs to carry out sentences. The Sheriff is responsible for early releases due to overcrowding which has been caused by realignment. READ ! Prison Realignment is a policy created by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation which shifts the responsibility of custody, treatment, and supervision of individuals convicted of specified non-serious from the state to counties. By redefining felony, crime punishable by death or prison, the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation has reduced state imprisonment by redistributing inmates to local county jails. The exact amount of time in county jail is left up to sheriffs. Due to California’s budget crisis, county jails are sometimes financially unable to maintain the sudden flow of inmates. The cause of this policy is overcrowding in state prisons, however, it simply shifts the burden onto county jails; it does not solve the problem of overcrowding in the prison system. This policy was initiated is in response to a federal courts ruling to reduce the state prison population. The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation then quickly moved many inmates to county jails. Timotheus you say Hestrin " wants to propose ideas and work to change things instead of accepting what Sacramento in their infinite wisdom imposes on us. " I looked at his web site. All I read and heard were feel good platitudes but not one single proposal to solve what Sacramento imposed. What are the good ideas? I am dying to hear them. I am sure Rod Pacheco's brother Hestrin has something concrete somewhere?

Ziegler April 20, 2014 at 04:23 pm
The layout of the grammer school makes a difference in what the child is exposed to and learns.Read More That sounds inconceivable but whan they made the decision to put the children is separate bungalows with just one teacher all day it meant that they would not be exposed to specialist teachers such as literature, art, and music appreciation until they get to Jr. High School. I grew up during the great depression. Most assuredly there was no excess money for education, yet we had a gym teacher, we received instructions in drawing and painting, and we listened to classical records in our one day a week music class - because we walked to the specialist teachers classroom. Getting instruction in the humanities costs no more than sitting all day with the same teacher. It is the number of classroom hours spent per week that counts. The Superintendant does not have to hire more teachers, he hires specialists who excite and stimulate the kids in the subject that they themselves love so much. When the child gets a singlr teacheer who teaches math, English, history, etc. that teacher is bound to not be too good at some of the myriad subjects. If we could expose kids tothe very best at the hight of the depression we can do better by them than to have them sit on their behinds all day with someone who is a master of some and a bore at all.

Ziegler April 20, 2014 at 04:06 AM "Karl has not blamed teachers and in fact he laments thatRead More Parents are ignored especially the Parents who want the besat for their kids. Over all the teachers are very much respected." ________________________________________________________ I think that the current tenure system is an insult to great teachers. The first special education classroom that I witnessed for my daughters did little more than babysit them. We were told that they were doing all they could for them and that they were meeting all of the goals of their IEP. Their next teacher was still taking classes towards her masters degree and was excited to try new things. My daughters made amazing progress. ____________________________________________________ When the LAUSD was forced to lay off teachers, do you want to guess which one lost her Special Education assignment? Instead she was assigned to a kindergarten classroom. What a waste of a special talent!

Bill- you forgot to tell VWDS that when her listing expires to contact you. And all the news says isRead More inventory is down and prices are up and investors are sitting on the sidelines. So which is it.??
Bill Burchard April 16, 2014 at 12:11 pm
Hi KMA . I have heard the same thing, that "inventory is down." But the numbers don'tRead More reflect that in the Murrieta area. Every day, I post the latest data on Murrieta homes for sale on my website. ( http://www.my3brealty.com/Murrieta-Homes-for-Sale.html ) I include two charts that graph the data over the last two years. The top chart shows the median asking price of homes currently listed for sale. The bottom chart shows the number of homes for sale. Last year at this time, there were about 150 homes for sale at any given time. This year there are over 400. (As of today, there are 425 homes for sale.) So the number of homes for sale in Murrieta has nearly tripled since last year. Median asking prices are definitely up from two years ago, though asking prices are down significantly from their peak a year ago. I think it is true that investors are sitting on the sidelines. But I believe that's mainly due to so many of them snapping up properties a couple of years ago. Now they are starting to sell. (Which has likely influenced the sharp increase in inventories over this past year.)
Bill Burchard April 16, 2014 at 01:31 pm
Good afternoon, Mad Arsenal. Thank you for sharing the article. It's my observation in Murrieta thatRead More over the past couple of years, about one-third of homes were purchased by cash buyers. That is a lot. It's my sense that more recently the number of cash buyers has fallen significantly. (I have not researched it. It's just my gut feeling.) What I have experienced the past few months is a surprising number of renters asking for help finding a new rental. They explain that they are great tenants, but that they are forced to find a new home because their landlords decided to sell. The good news about the rise in home values is that many former underwater homes now have equity, thus allowing owners to finally sell.

I wouldn't live in any other country, but it is incredibly immature and ignorant to not realize thatRead More we have a laundry list of things to improve. Blind faith and devotion with that "we are #1" attitude without rational thought might be what all governments (and religions) would like to have, but as far as being a citizen and member of humanity goes it is your duty to use your brain....

No other country is willing or in some cases allowed to do that. In some places, they aren't even allowed to think about doing that. I do agree with most of your laundry list, but compared to any other place, it ain't all bad. That my friend is using our brains. Which also means at times using our brawn to protect us from those who use their brain for less good.
