I’m surprised none of the nit picking, fact police out there have commented on the first sentence of this story yet. So I think I’ll deputize myself. Nick, you better rethink that one buddy. Were you working late to get this in by deadline? I wasn’t aware that the nuclear power plant caused the tsunami.

@ricka3, if I’m not mistaken there are enrollment boundaries for public schools and you aren’t going to find many, if any, kids at La Cumbre and SB that can go to DP.
So happy for DP and the kids. I wish they had this when I went there. The year I took physics at DP we had some imbecile of a life science teacher that had transferred from SBHS and made a mockery of the teaching profession.

Bunch of left wing, hippie, pot smokers! Rubbish! Just kidding. But jeez there is no one in the comments against the re-legalization? Awesome, just awesome, hopefully enough of the rest of the state feels the same way. As stated by someone else Hurst had a lot to do with the downfall of this wonderful plant. One of his forests in Mexico had been taken over by reefer crazed Mexicali’s and he wasn’t having that. Dupont also had a huge role, they aren’t just keeping it down now. As Hurst was in an uproar, Dupont was developing nylon, before nylon the US Navy used hemp rope for their rigging. There are so many things that can be made with this plant and it’s a hardy, pest resistant plant thst doesn’t deplete the soil of it’s minerals so it’s a great rotation crop.
Now I haven’t read all that prop 19 entails. What would the law say about growing your own? I imagine someone must be concerned about kids getting at it. How about lost tax revenue for people growing there own and not buying it at a business where it is taxed? I have no kids to worry about and the government wouldn't miss the miniscule revenue they would get from me if I bought it somewhere, since I don’t smoke much at all, just a bit when I haven’t been sleeping well and really need a good nights rest or maybe if I’m working in the yard all day or maybe when I watch a trippy movie, or go to a concert or get out of bed in the morning. Just kidding on that one, just making sure you’re still reading. Anyway my veggie garden is rockin’ this year and a kind sensi plant would be the perfect addition next year and would be more than enough for me for the year..

I was wondering why there was a Fire Department pumping truck rolling through the neighborhood as I unloaded my truck on the 1000 block of OSM at 7:00 last night after been gone for the weekend. I came down OSM on my way home and didn’t see or smell anything out of the ordinary. Thank you to all the responders!

All ten defendants have been publicly named. Would it make you happy for them to reprint the seven that can afford lawyers? It was irrelevant to the story. Look back and you'll find their names.

Wow AShaw, glaucoma is one of the first aliments that cannabis was used to treat and probably one of the few that the government still provides federally grown and supplied pot for. Medical cannabis can be used for many, many things, not just serious pain. Elvy wouldn't be walking anywhere without a red and white cane if she weren't smoking or taking some nasty man made chemical compound. Both my wife and my Grandmothers, one in California and one in Washington, smoked as they were dying to keep there appetites up to increase their comfort levels.

johnathansmith, sorry to pick on you, but leaf blowers use 2-stroke engines, see eastbeach's comment on 2-stroke vs. 4-stroke engines. Also see the word "proportionally" that I used when comparing auto and motorcycle accidents.

johnathansmith, what would you consider a "civil community?" Is Europe civil? Go take a look at a typical European city and see what percentage of people are commuting on motorcycles. My wife happens to know Curtis quite well and from what I've heard he is a responsible rider. Since traffic was backed up right before Fairview, I imagine this happened somewhere around 5-6 pm and if the sun had broken through yesterday the sun would have been right in Curtis' eyes. Regardless of what caused the accident, I imagine there are proportionally more auto accidents than motorcycle accidents and add up to far more congestion. Sure there are also hotshots out there that do stupid things on there motorcycles. But just within the last two weeks as I was commuting to or from work, in the fast lane, on my motorcycle, I have had two different people come up behind me driving way too fast, to the point that they scared me, then make sudden lane changes just to move up a bit in heavy traffic. And as for pollution, motorcycles are under strict emissions guidelines, use smaller engines than cars and consistantly get 50-60 mpg. The world would be a cleaner place if everyone that commutes alone rode a motorcycle.
