Thank Mark for your years of dedicated service to the community. And for those of you who doubt that this Mark Ward is also the comic genius of "Proctor and Ward", he is the same guy. Let's hope in retirement he returns to covering the Fiesta parade.

Sorry RHS-Driving is a privilege and not a right. The city can and should control what happens on its streets. The overnight RV ban should be extended throughout the whole city.

What a tragic event. My heart goes out to the families of the victims.
Interesting to note the statement in the above article that the car was hit "as the four passengers were attempting to get out". I wonder where that statement came from. The kids' car hit a guard rail and ended up rolling down the freeway leaving a long debris trail. When it came to a stop, the car was hit by Kreis. At some point, two of the passengers were ejected from the car. It would be had to imagine a rollover scenario where everyone was trying to get out of a rolled over car within seconds after it rolled. I have been through a rollover and it takes quite a bit of time to figure out what to do and then do it, especially if you are hanging upside down from your seat belt.
That said, the prosecutor's zeal to place the blame for the kids' deaths on Kreis without sufficient evidence really amounts to a witchhunt. We expect more civilized behavior from our civil servants. And even more than that, a witchhunt doesn't serve the families of the victims needing to move forward from their grief.
And, hopefully Kreis will finally get her act together.

Yes, those Poder mentioned disparities also bother me. Asians seem to get into trouble much less than all the other races. That is so unfair. Oh the inequality!

Sadly, a rather simplistic viewpoint from the Member from Watsonville. He would benefit from an indepth course in California history with a special emphasis on the Spanish and Mexican periods and what happened to the Indian lands under those regimes. Also of interest would be a course in archeology to gain an understanding of pre-Columbian Indian history.
And although the Member proports to support free speech, his letter essentially tells the Supervisor to shut up about the subject of Indian soveneignity. Telling someone to shut up is more appropriate of a dictatorship than a democracy.

Has anyone noticed that sea level has been rising since the last ice age? Let's not try to profit on something that has been going on for the last 15,000 years by saying that this is some sort of new event.
