East Beach: Can you explain how it's possible for a precinct to be gerrymandered in a City Council race?
The only way for an individual precinct to be gerrymandered is when it borders another political district (such as congressional district borders) where it becomes more than just a precinct. In an at large Council race that is impossible as the outside precinct border is the city limit, which is not something that changes and has no adjacent district with which to gerrymander. If SB ever went to district elections, the lines would be re-drawn with new precincts and only then would there be a possibility of gerrymandering an SB city precinct.

Another vote against Mr. Flacks' misleading comments toward Hotchkiss. Its one thing to disagree with policies, its another to incorrectly label someone a Tea Partier, and its an outright lie to say he was Chair of the local GOP. Bring some facts to the table, not partisan rhetoric that rings false and discredits your other statements.

Exactly what I was wondering. Why would you take the trouble to work your way onto the freeway at Carp Ave only to take the very next exit and bail? Maybe the thought was to lose the cops by swerving onto the fwy instead of taking a straight shot down Carp Ave, but if you know the area decently as it seems they may, why not go left into the neighborhood instead? Whatever they did seemed to have worked.

I dont understand the controversy. To play free tennis in SB, all one needs to do is go to any of the high schools, which actually have pretty decent courts. Ive played at Las Positas before but not recently; It sounds like this would be more like a low cost athletic club that would lie between the high school and tennis club experience.

Redbunz - just to clarify, 300 W. Arrellaga is near Bath. Olive is at 500 E. Arrellaga.

Ms. Gilmore, the chart posted regarding power output and consumption is definitely interesting, but what about going back just a few short years when our demand was exceeding production and the state was going through rolling brownouts?

Does "frackproject.com" even exist? The link is broken and a google search with the author and website only brings up this article.
It would seem reasonable to either offer the same opportunity to an "industry reporter" or fore-go the guest op-ed thing and stick to Indy staffers writing stories. Your paper is good, why give it away to "news features" like this?

There are still roughly 16-17% of ballots left to count in SB County. If you extrapolate those numbers to SB city (which we cant as we dont know the geographical breakdown of remaining ballots), W and X would have to get nearly 80% of remaining votes to pass. With remaining ballots trending more liberal, passage of the school measures is still plausible but highly unlikely. We will know for sure tomorrow when a large batch should be counted and released.
