I really hope they are okay!

Poor kid. He's going to hear the story for the next 60 years how his dad saved him.

On Car Crashes Into Gazebo, Traps Young Child

when I attended Adams a zillion years ago, I knew two kids that wore diapers. we 'all' teased them until the school counseled the various classes. The worst kids paid a special visit to Mr Peters and his paddle. problem solved.

most kids today are much more sensitive and aware of disabilities. but alas bullying by a few has always been an issue in schools. It does seem nowadays that schools are hamstrung by a decrease in parental responsibility and maturity and school limitations to tackle discipline issues

I remember when SB had more registered bikes than residents.

Any bike master plan will need to address electric and motorized bikes

I hope the pilot used the proper hand signal to turn off 101

Restoring the kelp beds, which were mostly damaged by untreated sewage, is the best long term solution for minimizing shoreline damage.

This will hurt the ranchers who were seeking an additional revenue stream needed to keep the suburbs and ranchettes from further destroying SB.

Also Acciona Energy is based in Madrid and the Spanish economy has really been hurting. They probably had to cut their losses and focus on projects with less resistance.

As for solar farms, my opinion is that the state should lease out the California aqueduct right of way for a up to 700 mile long solar farm. Including putting concrete lids over the aqueduct channels to reduce evaporation. The lease revenue should go straight to the state's debt load (wishful thinking)

This is an excellent use of BAE 146 aircraft. These suckers were built for steep descents into small airports in the middle of cities that had a lot of noise ordinances. While not a huge commercial success because of four engines, they appear to be great aircraft to convert into firefighters.

The existing inventory of planes is very old and much smaller after many aircraft were parked after wings fell off of two very old aircraft. (Which also caused the Navy and USAF to rebuild the wings of their C-130 and P-3 aircraft)

On Firefighters Gain Ground on White Fire

It appears to me that these skaters must be being doing okay in school and absorbing their history lessons. Especially the parts about American's responsibilities associated with civil disobedience.

P.S. Way, way back back in 1975, SMHS shut down a day early because, after yearbooks didn't arrive, the campus broke out into a HUGE water balloon fight on a very hot June day. As everyone rushed to the parking lots, there were smiling sheriffs leaning against their cars with their red lights on just waiting for someone to race out into the street.

This is not skimming a few dollars off the coffee mess or taking a few pens home. This amount can be a budget line item in a city budget. This is the salary of maybe 1-2 people per year.

The next investigative step to review and find out why management controls weren't working and to fix them. This step may find out if other negligence or criminal behavior was involved by others.

Furloughing working people to address budgetary issues is simply not the right approach. And fire fighters? Stupid idea.

There are so many programs or tax cuts that should be eliminated to balance the budget. As a civil servant, I see so many ways in my workplace. Things like building renovations to reduce energy costs; allowing us to buy hand held bar code scanners to perform inventory; revising supervisor to worker ratios from 1 - 6 to 1 - 10 or trimming how much we accumulate in sick or annual leave.

Spirit walker: while I don't personally like drugs, I would support your idea if if 50% of the proceeds went to drug abuse treatment and 50% went to the state or federal debt!
