Who has even heard of these stores? Didn't Aaron Bros.go under in 1987? Who wants to take the timeRead More to hack into these accounts? Dummies that shop there don't have any money! Low-brow and low income customers who bring in their 5 screaming kids ( 4 are obese!) And their parents let them terrorize the rest of the shoppers. Free babysitting while Mommy orders an extra large Slushee for Remo and his ADD. Why ? Parents weren't parented either. Or its considered cute as Jr. has his meltdown with sticky chocolate fingers ! Count me out...

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actual few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in the population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment, justly applied, for infractions have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime/prisons is the goal if you THINK.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.

I have been a fan of Drakes Bay oysters for more than half of their now-expired lease. I would loveRead More to think that their continued operation could be compatible with the health of the ocean and the larger ecosystem. Ascertaining the feasibility of this is sufficiently complex that I have spent several hours studying various perspectives, and I have friends with varied positions. Just because the "wise use" extremists funded by Dupont, Chevron, Exxon, the NRA, etc., have taken on this case does not nullify the possible validity of the Lunnys' claims, but it probably does push the polarization of this issue, as evidenced in the comments above. There is a good deal more to consider than arguing that the purpose of the sea is to feed humans, whose food cannot grow at all without a healthy ocean ecosystem. The ecology is not shoddy, not has it been conducted from high towers in the USSR. Rigorous study, thinking and informed debate are critical to this issue and essential to government of, by and for the People. In this case the democratic process has brought this into the courts, where I hope and expect the Lunnys will continue to get a full and fair hearing, despite the fact that they want to get out of complying with a contract from which they have benefitted tremendously on public lands for decades, with a number of mitigated and unmitigated direct costs to the health of Drakes Bay.

What is the value of labeling the Lunny's appeal to the Supreme Court "a last ditch move"?Read More To my mind, "last ditch" has a negative connotation. One function of the Supreme Court is to provide a final consideration of the facts. Certainly, there have been many occasions when the Supreme Court's decision reversed lower court decisions. No one denigrates the Court's decision just because it came at the end of the road. I suspect that Ms. Trailer will applaud the Supreme Court if it agrees that the Lunny's must go. As for the Lunny's using "desperate arguments," what is the point of someone not on the court labeling the arguments as "desperate"? Does that make the arguments less compelling? I feel that language like that stirs the pot. It does not contribute to healing the badly wounded community. Much better, I think, to stick to the facts ("desperate" is a judgment, not a fact) or simply wait for the Court to decide. I believe the time has come for us to use our rhetoric to build bridges, not to continue the war.

Lets hope they also revamped other staff at Springfield because my 95 year old grandmother was thereRead More only for 6 months 2012-2013 and we couldn't get her out fast enough. They would enter her room including the bathroom when she was taking a shower with a key when they shouldn't have been. They told her she couldn't leave the facility without an escort when she walked 2 miles a day and had no memory problem and tried to limit family contact. The food was terrible they went through 3 chefs while she was there and the health care manager who is supposed to be a nurse has a power trip and really should be replaced too. She caused as lot of chaos in my grandmothers life as well as badgering her on several occasions. It was horrible and she is now in another assisted living facility and happy. We wrote several letters to Leisure Care informing them of the problems and NO ONE ever got back to us. Terri Escamillo

petaluma needs local money. the Hotel Petaluma is a problem because the money resides in Tiburon.Read More He'll, Terry Andrews will cost us. The planning and building inspectors have been ignored by this guy. This cannot do well for the community. There are sending relays all over the Hotel rooftop. No permits were issued for this. Look into this for yourself. This is wrong. We need interested wealth to build up this gem of a town. Not Tiburon fancy pants.

you are a good guy. saw you when i was there. try the metro for your meetings. really a sweet place.Read More it's petaluma france. local owners, they love the town. Fancy Pants will leave problems behind and will fail because Andrews is not how we are. Tiburon is his hangout and it shows.
