At this point police will have to reevaluate in the future if this is the kind of thing others willRead More be doing when diagnosed with a terminal illness. This can really screw up a policeman's head as assisted suicide is not legal in California [as far as i know] and it might require a new definition of the law and certain procedures when dealing with older people [sun city?] as this might come up again.

No one to blame but the victim who made this awful choice. Suicide is bad enough but to drag othersRead More into it as unwilling participants is hard to take. Can't imagine how desperate he must have felt at the end. It's easy to say that those who commit suicide are selfish but, in reality, they feel like they're doing everyone else a favor. They don't think about the wake of sorrow they leave behind. This time it's not only family, but neighbors and cops. My thoughts are with all of them and hope they can find peace, including Mr. Larragoitiy.

Stone opposes and will work to repeal ObamaCare, according to his web siteRead More http://www.jeffstone2014.com/issues/. If Stone believes in the free market and that government should stay out of health care, why does the County not walk the talk and get out of the health care business? Why has the County expanded government with 5 conservatives at the helm? The County just borrowed $2 million from the Worker's Compensation Fund for sewers in wine country -- a project that is only half funded -- but the local press doesn't find that story newsworthy.

$6 Bil Vanishes From State Dept. Under Hillary Clinton APRIL 07, 2014 In a mind-boggling example ofRead More how the government blows—or perhaps steals—our tax dollars, billions vanished from the U.S. State Department mostly while Hillary Clinton ran it, according to a new alert issued by the agency’s inspector general. Could the former Secretary of State be using the cash to fund an upcoming presidential campaign? In all, $6 billion are missing and it’s highly unlikely any of the money will ever be recovered. The cash was supposed to be used to pay contractors but it just disappeared and documents that could help track the dough cannot be located. How convenient! The paper trail, which federal law says must be maintained in the case of government contracts, has been destroyed or was never created to begin with.

AN ANALYSIS  WORTH READING: by Dick Morris, former political advisor to President Bill ClintonRead More beware as I was there for most of their presidency and know them better than just about anyone, I offer a few corrections; The facts are: Hillary's main extra-curricular activity in law school was helping the Black Panthers, on trial in Connecticut for torturing and killing a federal agent. The facts are:  Hillary interned with Bob Truehaft, the head of the California Communist Party. The facts are:   She flunked the DC bar exam, yes, flunked,  it is a matter of record, and only passed the Arkansas bar. The facts are:  Her main board activity, was to sit on the Wal-Mart board of directors, for a substantial fee. She was silent about their labor and health care practices. The facts are: Her visits abroad were entirely touristic and symbolic and there was no substantive diplomacy on any of them. One cannot think of a single bill Hillary has introduced or a single comment she has made that would tend to strengthen our country in the War on Terror. Think  about it - he's (Dick Morris) said all of this openly, thus if he were not truthful he'd be liable for defamation of  character! And you better believe Hilary would sue him.

Cops got a chance to play with their toys. Relax people. It's not like you had to respondRead More personally. Stop saying it's a waste of money. Then money is absolutely minimal. These guys were not called away from their golf games. I would also like to compliment the responders for not accidentally killing someone. It showed professionalism and did not add to the "trend" of killing "innocent" people; which is becoming an issues to watch.

I say dual endorsement is a good idea where both candidates appear to be well qualified.

I dislike it when DISTRICT ATTORNEY CANDIDATES MAKE PUFFY CLAIMS "VOTE FOR ME. I AMRead More HARSH", "I WILL TAKE ALL THESE DANGEROUS AND VIOLENT CRIMINALS OFF THE STREET AND KEEP THE PUBLIC SAFE." That is paraphrasing the DA in a nearby county at a press conference announcing the arrests of raids where some respectable medical marijuana patients had delivered SMALL LEGAL QUANTITIES OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA ONLY TO OTHER PATIENTS AND ONLY AFTER PERSONALLY VERIFYING THEIR ID AND THEIR CURRENT DOCTOR RECOMMENDATIONS ACCORDING TO STATE LAW.

County Supervisor's Jumping on the Band Wagon... Let the record reflect that I was the firstRead More civilian to endorse Mike Hestrin Publicly in Riverside County...I am Kind of proud of that! A few weeks later Zellerbach showed his appreciation and I was charged with multiple felonies he created literally out of thin air. It took a few months for my case to wind it's way through the court system. In the end, THREE separate judges ruled "NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED! ALL charges have been dismissed. I as Chairman of The Riverside County Leadership Forum, Zellerbach must have felt that my support for Mike Hestrin, his opponent might perhaps be the beginning of his undoing. When I sent out a memo to campaign donors that I was going to be supporting Mike Hestrin and that I suggested they wait to start writing checks to Zellerbach's campaign until they were able to meet Mike and get a better understanding of him, that they might also decide he was the better of the two candidates. A few days after that email went out, Zellerbach was forced to cancel a fundraiser due to lack of interest. Less than a week later, I received a letter from the DA telling me to turn myself in to the court and answer to Felony Death Threats and Stalking charges, ALL of my firearms have been confiscated by Zellerbachs orders and I am still to this day left defenseless in my very own home because of Paul Zellerbachs abuse of his authority. I will expand on this in our next newsletter that will be hitting email inboxes across Riverside County in a few day's Learn more about The Riverside County Leadership Forum here: http://www.riversideforum.org/

A PART OF THE PROBLEM IS THE CUT IN BUDGET FOR THE COUNTY MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY. Persons thatRead More needed prescriptions to functions that needed a doctor interview to refill used to go to an appointment at any of several offices. The county cut out the branch and made everyone have to go to the main county mental hospital. There were no APPOINTMENTS. EVERYONE HAD TO WAIT ABOUT 4 HOURS OR MORE TO SEE THE DOCTOR FOR SEVERAL MINUTES AND GET THEIR PRESCRIPTIONS REFILLED. People were standing in line for two or three hours every morning before the doctors even started seeing patients. The waiting AREAS WERE CROWDED AND STUFFY. I took someone there on several occasions. The nurses and staff were nice, but there were not enough of them. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- I THINK IT IS LIKELY THAT THE NUMBER OF SUICIDES IN RIVERSIDE COUNTY INCREASED BECAUSE OF THIS. ----- I THINK THERE WERE PERSONS WHO WERE ABLE TO BE EMPLOYED WHEN THEY HAD THEIR MEDICINE HAD TO STOP WORKING OR GOT FIRED BECAUSE THEY HAD TO MISS SO MANY DAYS FROM WORK TO GET THEIR DOCTOR INTERVIEW AND MEDICINE.

Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

So educational professionals and people that hire these students out of college or high schoolRead More shouldn't have a seat at the table? Who should make curriculum decisions? The local school board member that doesn't know anything about a high quality education? The state government that might think creationism and abstinence only education is still what our children should be learning? I'd rather have the Common Core which brought together education professionals from all of the states to make sure my kids have a leg up when they graduate High School. They also brought in companies that have decades of education or hiring experience. What's wrong with having people that know what they are talking about, setting our policy? I'd rather have professionals making these decisions and not some groups that create facebook pages and youtube videos demonizing Common Core because they don't want to listen to the facts.

Persons that say that are very wrong. Many of them are already driving and nearly all of the rest will be driving soon. --------- Some of the students will be trying out beer soon if not already, and maybe even putting social pressure on others saying "get drunk, its fun". Dangers of social drinking should indeed be taught in high school.
