There is always a reason for a price-increase - I can't remember ever reading about a reason for aRead More price-decrease. It's possible no one else has noticed this. Isn't capitalism wonderful?

Uh, no family got $1.1 billion. "Owners of some 16 million Toyota, Lexus and Scion vehiclesRead More would be eligible for payments and safety updates that would vary depending on their vehicle and its age."
Alek J Hidell April 10, 2014 at 09:48 am
In the case of the California Highway Patrol officer, Toyota paid $10 million to settle his case butRead More did not admit fault for the crash which killed him and his family. Toyota also paid $1.1 billion to settle purely financial claims with customers who claimed that the safety defects decreased the value of their Toyota, Lexus, and Scion vehicles......
Lowe's will pay various counties throughout California $18.1 million for mishandling hazardous waste. Patch file photo.

Although most of Lowe's employees are good people and hard working, Lowe's refuses to hire or evenRead More interview those with a college degree, it is laughable. Lowe's is just a typical corporation with some sick CEO who's motto is probably "money is everything."
Steve April 3, 2014 at 11:11 am
Money isn't everything, but it rates right up there with oxygen, the rest you can keep 'em for theRead More birds and bees.

Why did the state wait SIX years to file a suit if they knew Lowes was dumping hazard material???

Ever notice that Kaiser Permanente is never permanente?
Cousin Clem March 20, 2014 at 08:53 pm
Henry J. Kaiser owned shipyards and Permanente Metal Company years ago, so that is why Permanente isRead More capitalized. Permanente stated medical centers for the large number of shipyard workers that had recently moved to that area. Later Henry J Kaiser started a medical Plan and some non-profit Kaiser Hospitals. ~~~~~ After growing and going through some changes the current integrated managed care consortium was formed and named Kaiser Permanente.
Cousin Clem March 20, 2014 at 09:15 pm
THERE IS A LOT OF HEALTH INFORMATION FREE TO THE PUBLIC WITH NO MEMBER SIGN IN REQUIRED on theRead More KAISER PERMANENTE WEB SITE. www.kp.org (www.kp.com also works) I have been a member of Kaiser Permanente for over 45 years. ~~~~~ There are now Kaiser medical OFFICES in Wildomar and Temecula. ~~~~~ But to visit many of the specialists we now have to go to Riverside, or one of the other medical CENTERS somewhere else. Likewise if we have to go to the hospital we have to go to Riverside or other cities. It will be nicer to have the hospital and medical CENTER right here in Murrieta.
Alek J Hidell March 13, 2014 at 10:00 am
I for one am proud to support our Great Leader of the Homeland--and gladly accept whatever newRead More security laws He feels fit to impose; freedom isn't free--we must give up certain rights in order to be free. We must work for freedom. Work makes us free....Arbeit macht frei...
KMA March 13, 2014 at 01:05 pm
Mad- Tel me what role did Obama play in getting this facility built in Murrieta? And he hasRead More destroyed this country and divided it with his lack of foreign policy integrity. The great community organizer- should have stayed there. And the sword I speak of is the sword Kleiner kept referring to in his blind allegiance to Obama. A problem you seem to share.
KMA March 14, 2014 at 08:56 am
Mad- I am not fixated on the other person- you have just appeared and you have the same misguidedRead More beliefs he has. So Obamcare is helping build the extended care facility. The residents of this facility will be on medicare or medicaid- how does Obamacare help them afford the stay- does it cut them a check every month? And again with the anti gun rhetoric- with a handle like Mad Arsenal one would think you would be pro gun- just pro RPG right?
Alek J Hidell March 10, 2014 at 12:48 pm
the answer is to tax the CHURCHES. And tax the BUSINESSES THAT ARE OWNED BY THE CHURCHES. ArsenalRead More wouldn't work if they taxed him at 90%, but he thinks the rich would. Idiot!
ChrisG March 10, 2014 at 01:11 pm
@mad, who do you think funds innovation and jobs? Do you think that magically happens? Look at anyRead More of the failed communist countries and see how their jobs programs supported their citizens. I guess jeff kleiner is back. Let's see how long til his next meltdown gets him banned again.

Jeff Kleiner, Im sure you saw that Channell Corp is leaving Temecula and Calif because of oppressiveRead More business climate..
Mike March 3, 2014 at 11:56 am
Caterpillar, Verizon, and others are already coming out with the costs they will incurr over this.Read More But that isn't the REAL problem here. The real problem is what this is going to do to the already sucking outloud economy we have. I am talking about mass lay offs that makes what we have had already look like nothing. These companies will pay less people to work more hours because it will still be cheaper than paying the associated costs of Obamacare. The union people will be hit just as hard as the average working man too. That's gonna' suck for them, but I would call it poetic justice. The underground economy is also getting ready to explode. I mean explode. People that have farm labor and small business labor will save money by just paying cash and not dealing with the new taxes. Up until now they could come out by writing the labor off on their taxes, but now it would be stupid to do so. So, the way I see it is the liberals are working on accomplishing their tru motives here. Destroy the health system and move to single payer, destroy the economy and have the government owning all of business, and last but not least, destroy the drive that has made Americans the the best people on the planet by taking all control away and the ability to strive for more. After all, in a communist society one person cannot have more than another remember.
Steve Newman March 3, 2014 at 12:08 pm
Mike- I am pretty sure JK saw it- but since he is a liberal tax and spend entitlement freak he won'tRead More admit any problems with the dems in charge in California. He should move to New York City where the tax rate is the highest, since he has no problem paying taxes. One more calif company to Texas where their economy is so much better than Cali- and they support the 2d Amendment.

I don't see how hanging around in front of Home Depot getting glared at by Guatemalan illegals showsRead More any ambition.. other than tempt you to break into cars...Home Depot does drug testing and won't hire ex-cons either. You guys keep dreaming.

I don't know why the county would have an issue, or a say in the matter. Private land is just that,Read More Private. Next we'll be turning in "event" permits if we want to have a Barbeque and invite the neighbors. I can only imagine the rush of permit requests for superbowl sunday!
SESwan February 20, 2014 at 12:19 pm
we are becoming such an intolerant community... let the people run... with bulls even - if theyRead More want, which they apparently do! @anotherview, I don't see how this bull run will not impact the 79 corridor any more than the Tough Mudder event did a few months back, or more than the masses of RVs and Trailer going out to the glamis and ocotillo each weekend during "the season." Tough Mudder brought lots of folks and highly desirable revenue to the corridor as a matter of fact!!!

Steve didn't you learn anything?And you had the nerve to call me racist?
Steve Newman February 8, 2014 at 02:12 pm
Jeff- just like you don't want to befriend conservatives- I don't want to associate with IslamicRead More radicals like alek- read the post- and I have learned a lot in my life- including sticking to my guns, literally, when confronted by non thinkers.
Steve Newman February 9, 2014 at 02:10 pm
Jeff- what I said was not racist- what you said about non white women being uneducated- that wasRead More racist. I don't believe in what Muslims stand for- that is not racist. That is self protection.

Chris without the G, thank you for correcting as I did not know that bit of info. Interesting.Read More Steve, black coffee and sex is your train of thought, yep, cant teach a ole dog new tricks :) Muahahaha. Laura? I still dont know what point you are making concerning your thoughts on the new Starbucks? Oh and Annie, I could not fit my big toe into a pair of black skinny jeans with a ahh.....wench, so forget that idea!
B-Cat January 28, 2014 at 03:24 pm
A Starbucks drive thru? Heres a chance to spill some in my lap, how hot do they make it? ha ha, justRead More kidding. I guess a drive thru is ok but it leaves behind the original idea of a place to sit for a while in a comfortable chair reading the paper with coffee to sip either before the craziness of the day begins or just to chill out. Either way i wish the business good luck.
Alek J Hidell January 28, 2014 at 03:59 pm

The unemployment rate only counts those getting UE benfits with cogress not funding the extensionRead More in Dec the rate will drop due to less people getting benefits not they getting jobs. Dec rate in nj dropped and there were lest jobs reported please do some research see the U6 numbers too the real rate of Unemployment in Cal is twice the stated rate. http://neighbors-helping-neighbors.com/unemployment-crisis.html
LBV Collins January 25, 2014 at 06:20 am
@John R. Fugazzie: Are the U6 numbers the *real rate* of unemployment? According to the Bureau ofRead More Labor Statistics (http://www.bls.gov/lau/stalt.htm), the U-6 numbers are described as the "total unemployed, plus all marginally attached workers, plus total employed part time for economic reasons, as a percent of the civilian labor force plus all marginally attached workers." Doesn't that mean that the U-6 number includes not only unemployed, but also part-time employed? If so, is that a more accurate number than the U-3 numbers? (I'm not saying you're wrong, by the way. I'm just seeking insight regarding your point.)
Ralphs grocery store at 40545 California Oaks Road in Murrieta will close in March, a company spokesperson said. (Photo/Maggie Avants)
M. Lee Davis January 30, 2014 at 08:59 am
ok let me set the record straight, my mother just retired after working for Ralphs for almost 30Read More years. she can tell you first hand that they are about the most expensive grocery store out there.in fact she did most of her shopping at stater brothers. Ralphs prices are only good occasionally and only if you use their club card. If you go to stater brothers you never need a club cards and their prices on everything is going to be cheaper. Why do you think the parking lot at stater Brothers is always so crowded.
Deirdre April 1, 2014 at 02:49 pm
Now we have another empty building :/
Andy the Analyst April 2, 2014 at 12:07 am
There is a recycle place BEHIND the former Ralph's store that recently started up. It is notRead More related to the Ralph's store so it is still operating. Now I do not have to drive to the one by Albertson's as this one is closer.
