Sneaking into a house that's unlocked is one thing but BREAKING AND ENTERING? Then why don't copsRead More just shoot to wound? Unlike the movies someone can feign injury after a gunshot.

I would want to be briefed by both sides, but from the text, it appears the police are reportingRead More what he said at the time. He could not know in advance whether they were armed or not - since they could have had concealed weapons. Unless he was a trained and experienced gun fighter, once the action started he was acting on pure instinct and terror, as any vet will tell you about their first time in dangerous combat. The episode was unfortunate indeed, but unless I'm missing something here, there is no homicide case due to age and circumstances.

Flatiron Construction is a private company. They did bid and won. They barely broke ground on itRead More "a year ago." People develop very unrealistic expectations for how long these jobs take. That is why they use the phrase "projected completion."

Stone opposes and will work to repeal ObamaCare, according to his web siteRead More http://www.jeffstone2014.com/issues/. If Stone believes in the free market and that government should stay out of health care, why does the County not walk the talk and get out of the health care business?

The County just borrowed $2 million from the Worker's Compensation Fund for sewers in wine country -- a project that is only half funded -- but the local press doesn't find that story newsworthy.

THEY MANUFACTURE THE PLASTIC CONTAINERS LIKE THOSE SHOWN IN THE PHOTO, NOT THE PRODUCTS INSIDE THERead More BOTTLES. Therefore they use rather expensive high volume machines. That is why they do not need a lot of employees. If they used simple slow volume multipurpose machines requiring more operator time per bottle made, they could not exist as a company because the cost per bottle would be too high.

A COMPANY COULD HAVE $20 MILLION IN SALES AND MAKE NO PROFIT WHETHER THEY HAVE LOW PAYING JOBS ORRead More HIGH PAYING JOBS. Some companies make low profits and pay employees well, other companies make low profits and pay not much to their employees. -------- This varies with the product line, the market demand for the product line, how easy it is for competitors to enter that market, and how high taxes and utilities are in that community.

County Supervisor's Jumping on the Band Wagon... Let the record reflect that I was the firstRead More civilian to endorse Mike Hestrin Publicly in Riverside County...I am Kind of proud of that! A few weeks later Zellerbach showed his appreciation and I was charged with multiple felonies he created literally out of thin air. It took a few months for my case to wind it's way through the court system. In the end, THREE separate judges ruled "NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED! ALL charges have been dismissed. I as Chairman of The Riverside County Leadership Forum, Zellerbach must have felt that my support for Mike Hestrin, his opponent might perhaps be the beginning of his undoing. When I sent out a memo to campaign donors that I was going to be supporting Mike Hestrin and that I suggested they wait to start writing checks to Zellerbach's campaign until they were able to meet Mike and get a better understanding of him, that they might also decide he was the better of the two candidates. A few days after that email went out, Zellerbach was forced to cancel a fundraiser due to lack of interest. Less than a week later, I received a letter from the DA telling me to turn myself in to the court and answer to Felony Death Threats and Stalking charges, ALL of my firearms have been confiscated by Zellerbachs orders and I am still to this day left defenseless in my very own home because of Paul Zellerbachs abuse of his authority. I will expand on this in our next newsletter that will be hitting email inboxes across Riverside County in a few day's Learn more about The Riverside County Leadership Forum here: http://www.riversideforum.org/

@KMA at 03:49 pm. I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP! I am not making this up. This police officer I wasRead More acquainted with over a period of several years told me that in the city in another state it was normal practice for police officers to carry in their trunk an untraceable handgun, they could toss into the scene if they were involved in a police shooting where they wanted to say "he pulled a gun on me", but the victim did not have a gun. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- That was about 20 years ago he told me this, and it had been a few years before that wen he was employed at that other city. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- This officer was on the federal armed security police force at the high security government facility where I was employed as a civilian. They had to have a higher level secret security clearance. This was is an area where I used to live. I used to chat with him from time to time, and he has been in my home. He is a kind of car buff and showed me his stored cars. It is funny, he is a real policeman and I am not. I did go to auctions of police cars and bought some and sold him two really good used police cars.

You have to compare apples to apples and a New York apple is not a California apple. If you do notRead More own property in CA then you will be subjected to outrageous rent increases. Looking back over the last 20 years I can say that homes that I had owned back then, I could not even come close to affording even with my increased income. For instance: a home in the year 2000 in a San Diego Suburb sold for approx.: $250,000. That same home right now is worth close to $650,000. So you do the math - the long term investment value is well worth it, meanwhile the mtg. is being paid down and the rates have been very low making the payments much more affordable than renting. When you hit retirement age - you can cash out and have a much better return on your money than a 401K. I bought another home during the market crash - rock bottom price $180,000. That same home is now worth well over $350,000 and what is even better is my mortgage payment is 1/2 what it would cost to rent the lowest priced rental in the area. That alone makes it worthwhile. Property is one of the last tangible investments. Be smart - own something people want to buy.

I honestly think people dont understand that Temecula is NOT the kind of town that they can come inRead More and think we are those residents that feel all safe and ignore the potential criminals that come into town. We have seen enough that we have gotten really big into neighborhood watches, and like on our street, most of us had started setting up affordable surveillance cameras, because our cars kept getting opened with some device or some just got into cars, and with our social media groups, which are neighborhood based facebook pages, we right away post if a neighbor had a car opened, or if we have just called on suspicious cars, and all along that criminal thinks we are being quiet in our house...but we have photos posted of a guy that we caught breaking into a car..and it's posted at the hazit, that someone put up on their wall outside. We are so proactive here, and getting more and more connected with our neighbors here in Temecula that it's crazy good, and we are pushing out those signwaving vagrants, who ask for change, lingering around stores, druggies, asking for "gas money" by telling everyone else to stop giving even a dime to these vagrants, scammers, because it brings more of them, and they are decreasing now..so fast, especially with the mayors new law/program to get them out..
