More parks is always a good thing. Pesticide-free, right?
On Pocket Park Pops Up on Westside

Rather than discuss the silliness of dubbing that headline "racist," shouldn't we all be a bit concerned over how all of these illegals will perform behind the wheel of a vehicle? How many of them have had the benefit of driver education or driver's training classes? If they don't speak English, can they read road signs? Is the driver's test taken at the DMV now bilingual, too? Do the illegals have bilingual examiners when the "on the road" driving test is administered?
And where is it written that, just because they have a driver's license they also have insurance? Isn't anyone else a bit dismayed that illegal aliens can now show a valid driver's license and thus validate their residence here----as though they were here LEGALLY?

oops. I meant to write "stand up," not "lie down."
On Egg Prices Spike as Prop. 2 Takes Effect
Posted on January 2 at 4 p.m.
It's a whole bunch of double-talk, if you care to do a little online research into the meaning of "cage-free" and "pasture-raised." Read up and be prepared to feel outraged.
The price of eggs has zoomed, in only the past year. Did that have to do with Prop 2? I doubt it. Price-gouging at its finest. Whatever the market will bear.
Try to buy locally, whenever you can. See the difference in the yolk color and consistency and taste the difference, too, when you buy eggs from people whose happy hens really are allowed out in the yard.
What a travesty, that the voters had to demand a little extra space for hens, so that they could lie down, stretch their wings. Those factory-farmed hens still lead miserable lives, inhaling their own ammoniacal stench, day in and day out. Poor, hapless creatures.
Buy locally. There are plenty of small-time egg sellers around, even those happy to deliver, some of them. Save your egg cartons, and hand them off to the small operation owners. It's all about your health, spreading the wealth and not feeling guilty about where your eggs come from. A pox on factory farms!

And yet women will have kids with these guys. Wanna bet the arguments were taking place long before the pregnancy? Poor child. And poor grandparents. Bet they weren't expecting to raise another child at this point in their lives.

Three things:(1) Those K-9 "partners" should be wearing bullet-proof vests.(2)Dr. Dan, I agree, but the word is spelled "grotty." (3) To Taylor Hayden: Your run-on sentences are SO annoying! Please read your writing out loud and edit as necessary. When in doubt, keep sentences to 15 words or less. You're a journalist/reporter, not James Joyce writing Ulysses.

Castagnola's Lobster House was the place to go when we were kids. But I have never liked that silly lighthouse addition. That tower should have been removed long ago,.
Hopefully the City pays fair price and the Castagnola's are happy. It's a shame, though, to lose another piece of SB restaurant history.

What a laugh that "oak woodland conservation" and "vineyards" are even in the same sentence. We all know how well those two go hand-in-hand, right?
I hope this project can be stopped dead in the water. Haha. Water, get it?

Send in CSI and find out who these cretins were. How scary is this, that anyone could be so stupid and endanger us all? I hope he/they are found and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
