Mr. Hicks was my basketball coach for several years in the 90s. For me and so many others, he had a tremendously positive impact on my life as a child. I will never forget the countless hours he put it just so our team could succeed and we could all have fun. This news upsets me as I know it does for many people. Bernard is the kind of guy that makes you want to give back and help others. He was absolute salt of the earth, and I hope things work out for him.

Neworion--you put it perfectly. "To an outside observer..."

If you weren't in the courtroom every single day of this trial (like the jury members), you really can't objectively decide whether or not the defendant is guilty. This is our justice system.

Rstein--Frimpong's DNA was found inside of the victim. Yet, when arrested the next morning, he claimed he had no idea who she was (very important part of the case).

Lastly, this case has already been appealed, and denied (by a higher court).

John Locke---Read the article again.

The Judge WILL allow these witness to testify, but not until trial begins. Until then, they are allowed to make a written declaration about the signatures, which in theory has the same effect.

Kudos to Judge Hill for keeping court in order. His job is not one I envy.

Why is everyone acting like this is some death blow to McCaw? She's got over a hundred million. This is chump change. She will only continue to wield her power over this city.

The bias this newspaper shows toward the liberals is out of control.

I couldn't agree more. I lived there for 3 years, and have since moved out. Though the town is definitely not perfect, it's pros do outweigh the cons. I know exactly what you mean when you say people either "get it" or they don't. There are many things that IV could improve on, sure. But there is nothing like meandering around those streets for a few years, especially during the summer. The vibe is no doubt second to none. It will always get "ragged on" by the SB elite's who look down on the town, they still come to our school lectures, surf our beaches, and eat our burritos. While I have since moved on and now look at IV house parties as quite juvenile, my few years out there as a student-athlete were fantastic. What a community.

Rancho Embarcadero - flames visible, look like they are half mile away. Over 200 homes in this canyon, many above 2 or 3 mill...This could be devastating
