"When asked if she supported suspending Congressional pay, Capps said she is already part of efforts to ensure members of Congress are not paid during the shutdown. "
What does that mean? Is she working during the shutdown? I think it means endless wheelspinning that will accomplish nothing but look like something is being done.Why can't she just say "I'm returning my check to the Treasury" or "I'm donating my check to FoodBank in Santa Barbara"?
This is why we need term limits in DC. Politicians are incapable of speaking a simple sentence.

"While Caruso enjoys considerable cache throughout ..."
I believe the word you're looking for is cachet.

Anybody want to guess that it'll end up like SBCC? Fire someone and then have to buy out the remainder of their contract. She should have been canned for not letting the supes know she was looking elsewhere (but only if that wasn't allowable under her contract).

I've always wondered about something, so here goes. Does the U.S recognize a driver's license issued by a foreign country? If these people had any license to hand to the officer, would they accept it? BTW, I love how everybody thinks these new drivers will run out to purchase insurance. These folks are on the bottom of the ladder and need to put food on the table before they need car insurance.

Italiansburg says:"The parents of these kids are motivated and held accountable for their kids actions and success."
I'd like to add that the kids are also held accountable by the parents for their actions and successes (and failures).

KEYT is an embarrassment to TV. It's amateur hour. I can't watch the news without screaming at the TV because of their abysmal technical standards.Of course, that would assume they have standards. KEYT is the video equivalent of the News Press.

"Everybody agreed that the school district could do more to help that effort by sending out informational mailers"
On whose dime? If the schools are in such dire straits they should be conserving resources, not using them to support a political campaign. The Independent will give the measures plenty of publicity and I'm sure the politicians will as well.
