That photo of Caruso and crew coming out, grinning ear-to-ear is perfection itself. The face of greed personified and gratified.

anotherdayinparadise: I'm throwing a penalty flag on your snarky personal attack on Jarvis. Your comment is immature and mean-spirited. Really uncalled for and beneath you.
I haven't subscribed to the News-Press in years, but unlike many others on this thread, I remember exactly how the slippery slope began for the N-P and it had nothing to do with unionizing with the Teamsters or any of that. It had everything to do with Rob Lowe's address being printed and then the N-P's Editorial Page editor being busted for drunk driving. Then, AFTER that, was when the N-P disgruntled employees decided to grouse about Wendy's oversight, their pay and bring in the Union.
As for the Independent and its writers: I think Barney Brantingham was a turncoat, considering the fact that he was on the N-P payroll for decades and owes that entity at least some shred of loyalty. Who put food on his table for all those years? How many times has he told us in print how vile the N-P is? Such bad form.
And the other writers for the Indie? In recent years, the only one whose writings I can stomach are those of Nick Welsh. With nearly all the others, I can barely get through one paragraph of prose without mentally lashing out with the red pencil. Such terrible grammar! No subject-verb agreement, loads of appallingly confusing run-on sentences and mistakes even a Jr. HIgh School journalist wouldn't make. Sometimes you have to read the article twice to make certain you know what the subject really is. Did the copyeditor go on permanent vacation?
Without Wendy McCaw, the News-Press would have died long ago. I believe a lot of people jumped on the "Let's diss the News-Press" bandwagon without ever really having a true grasp of the facts.
Yes. It's always easy to dislike those who are rich. And Wendy will always be a target, with those deep pockets of hers. Best of luck to Eliason, when suing Wendy. He's going to need it.
Eliason, whose photographs I have always admired, should have gone straight to the top and told Ms. Mccaw about the mold and other issues. Since he alleges his "supervisors" weren't of any help, why didn't he tell his employer? Did McCaw even know there was a problem?

These restrictions will keep trash out of the Condor habitat, keep human handouts (accidental or intentional) out of the Condor habitat. I am hoping it will keep lead bullets out as well. Be well, Condors.
As for "babying," no care at all would have been necessary if not for humans always mucking everything up. I hope these magnificent birds thrive and that all measures taken adequately promote their survival.

Awesome. In every sense of the word. Awesome.

I love sharks. Hopefully, we humans will stop our slaughter of these magnificent animals before it's too late.

A prison is a prison is a prison. Poor hapless critters that end up on exhibit. What a terrible fate.

Lighting yourself on fire is "extremely unsafe and ill-advised." No kidding.
Before this was the ice bucket challenge. That's water. Up next: The "earth" challenge, where kids have themselves buried alive. And, last, the "air" challenge, where kids see how much air they can catch by jumping off very high cliffs, sans cords or chutes.

dou4now. What fun. Great looking back in time, isn't it? I kind of do the same thing with old business cards, once in a great while. While looking at the cards, I think of friends' endeavors and old stores and restaurants and hotels that used to be in SB.
Someday I will try and liquidate my collection of postcards. I must have 5,000 of them, many good ones of SB. After reading this article, maybe I can find some truly old ones, too.
