Newsom should sign bill granting civilian oversight of sheriff’s departments

The recent legislative session in Sacramento was not kind to a number of policing reforms. One bill that attracted little notice passed both houses and can make a significant impact on the civilian oversight of sheriff departments.  The governor should sign it. Assembly Bill 1185 authorizes each of the 58 California counties to create civilian oversight bodies over their elected sheriffs and to vest them with the power of subpoena. Authored by Assemblymember Kevin McCarty, a Democrat from Sacram...

Inland Empire has 47% fewer homes for sale, largest drop in U.S.

Inland Empire house hunters are searching for properties in the nation’s tightest market, according to one survey. The number of existing homes listed for sale in Riverside and San Bernardino counties fell by 47% in the year ended in August, Zillow reports. That’s the deepest decline among 50 large metropolitan areas tracked by the real estate firm. Pandemic fears, financial challenges and quick-selling homes have kept many owners from selling locally and across the nation. It’s made buying tric...

High housing costs keep Californians poor

Congratulations California, you’ve done it again. The Census Bureau has once again found that California has the highest real-world poverty rate of any state, 17.2 percent over the previous three years and much higher than the national rate. The “supplemental” poverty rate includes factors ignored by the outdated “official” poverty rate, such as living costs. And our sky-high living costs, particularly for housing, impoverish at least 7 million Californians. We topped the poverty charts even as ...

Lamb Homers, A’s Move Closer To AL West Title With Win Over Giants

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Jake Lamb hit a two-run homer once Oakland finally got to San Francisco’s bullpen, and the playoff-bound Athletics beat the Giants by the same 6-0 score for a second straight game Saturday. Lefty starter Jesús Luzardo (3-2) gave up five hits over six innings, striking out seven without a walk. He ended a four-start winless stretch. The A’s clinched their third straight postseason berth with a 6-0 win Friday night and were closing in on the club’s first AL West crown since ...

A’s Clinch Playoff Berth With Win Over Giants, Mariners loss

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — An AL West title will mean so much more than simply clinching a playoff berth given how the past two seasons have gone for the Oakland Athletics. Then, the A’s might let loose and celebrate a little. But not just yet. They secured a third straight playoff berth with Seattle’s loss to San Diego and a 6-0 win against the San Francisco Giants on Friday night, highlighted by Matt Olson’s three-run homer. “Clinching the playoffs is the goal every single year. Exciting, but winn...

‘Environmental justice’ starts by providing more water

SACRAMENTO >> Environmentalists have won the latest battle in California’s water wars, as California American Water just announced it is temporarily withdrawing its application to build a desalination plant on an old sand mine in the largely low-income town of Marina near Monterey. The proposal faced a tough approval process at the California Coastal Commission after local activists complained about its effects on their community. In a recent article, the Los Angeles Times asked this loaded ques...

Cop’s call as to whether you get cited for not having a front license plate

Q. I just got a fix-it ticket from the California Highway Patrol on the 73 for not having a front license plate. The front of my car, a 2013 Chrysler 300 SRT, did not have a mount for a front plate. Right after getting the ticket, I saw more than five vehicles without front license plates within a two-mile stretch. I went to my car dealership and it graciously put the plate on. I wasn’t looking forward to defacing my car’s front look. Everyone knows that thousands of cars in our area are driving...

Giants Beat Mariners 6-4 In Road Game Playing At Home

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Wilmer Flores hit a go-ahead, two-run triple in the seventh inning of the Giants’ 6-4 win Thursday that sent the Mariners their second home defeat played in San Francisco’s ballpark because of dangerous air quality in Seattle. The series was moved to the Bay Area from Seattle because of smoke from West Coast wildfires. The nomadic Mariners headed to San Diego for three more “home” games at Petco Park. Darin Ruf homered in the second inning to back Giants starter Tyler Anders...

Visitors At Home, Giants Hit 3 HRs And Beat Mariners 9-3

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Brandon Belt, Brandon Crawford and Evan Longoria homered for San Francisco, and the visiting Giants playing at home beat the Seattle Mariners 9-3 on Wednesday night in a game moved to the Bay Area because of smoky, dangerous air in Western Washington.

Gov. Newsom: Nothing In State Guidelines Preventing Pac-12 From Resuming Football

SACRAMENTO (AP) — Any plans for the Pac-12 to join the Big Ten in returning to football are on hold due to health policies in two states within the conference. The Big Ten changed course Wednesday and said it will begin an eight-game football schedule on Oct. 23. The Pac-12 has also reconsidered starting its football season this fall, but does not have approval from state and local health officials in California and Oregon to conduct contact practices. Earlier this month, the Pac-12 announced a ...

Calabasas considers cannabis measure

If approved by voters on Nov. 3, the 2020 Cannabis Tax Measure C places a 10% tax on the gross receipts of cannabis businesses delivering products in Calabasas. Currently, Calabasas prohibits cannabis businesses from operating within city limits. Measure C will not change that prohibition nor does it tax medical patients using cannabis. The proposed measure addresses other cannabis operations and future dispensaries should the City Council or state decide to allow them in the future.  At that po...

Faster transition to electric vehicles needed, Lung Association says

Even before the current outbreak of wildfires, the greater Los Angeles area perennially experienced the worst air pollution in the nation. The sprawling, automobile-centric region feeds smog into a geographic basin that often locks in the dirty air. The car and truck traffic also contribute to climate change, a primary contributor to the trend of ever-worsening wildfires and their impact on air quality. While the state has led the country in aggressively regulating emissions — and sells more ele...

Kamala Harris is living proof of the American Dream she now derides

Speaking just days after the August 23 police shooting of Jacob Blake, Democratic nominee for vice president, California Sen. Kamala Harris, delivered a message to the American people that was the exact opposite of the call for unity and healing it needed. “The reality is that the life of a Black person in America has never been treated as fully human,” she claimed while standing in front of the American flag. Harris displayed a great deal of anguish over Blake’s shooting, calling it “an ordeal ...

Taxing and spending on this fall’s California ballot

It wouldn’t be a California election without hundreds of tax and bond measures on the ballot. This November, California voters will not only vote on the massive tax hike presented by Proposition 15, but according to the California Taxpayers Association they’ll also have to consider 239 local tax and bond measures. The outcome of these measures will be quite revealing with respect to how Californians perceive their government and current levels of taxation. In March 2018, the Public Policy Instit...

19 years after the Sept. 11 attacks, end the forever wars

Nineteen years ago today, America was shocked by the tragic attacks on our nation. We must never forget the nearly 3,000 lives we lost that day or the incalculable impact on all who were impacted by the attacks of that day. The world as we knew it changed that day. In the aftermath of the attacks, a sense of national unity swept America not experienced ever since. Especially amid our currently brutally divisive and challenging moment, it’s difficult to fathom a return to anything resembling such...

‘War on suburbs’ is more about politics than reality

SACRAMENTO >> As Republicans battle Democratic electoral advances in the nation’s politically pivotal suburbs, they’ve been sounding the alarms about a liberal plot to dismantle our beloved single-family neighborhoods. For instance, the conservative National Review in June declared, “Biden and Dems are set to abolish the suburbs.” This would be shocking if true, rather than a transparent attempt to scare soccer moms into voting for the GOP. “For the past three years, the state senator who repres...

Don’t open door to a Sacramento special session

The tumultuous end to the legislative session has left many lawmakers feeling frustrated and, as one Democratic legislator told a newspaper, “unsatisfied.” The coronavirus shortened the schedule and lawmakers have complained that they didn’t accomplish everything they set out to do. Frankly, we’re relieved that the final gavel has dropped. A group of 20 Assembly and Senate Republicans have called for a special legislative session. “The purpose … would be to address critical policy issues related...

California Legislature fails on police reform promises

When the California Legislature folded up its tent 10 days ago, it left an extraordinary number of high-profile bills still awaiting final votes, and the finger-pointing has been underway ever since. It’s not unusual for the last day of any legislative session to be a madhouse but the 2020 version was especially so for a variety of reasons, including the public eruption of long-simmering animosity between the Legislature’s two top figures, Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon and Senate President Pro...

Re-elect Scott Wilk to represent Senate District 21

Scott Wilk is seeking his second term in the California state Senate representing the 21st District in the Santa Clarita area and High Desert communities, and his positive outlook and essentially moderate approach leads us to endorse his re-election. Realizing that his Republican Party has a tough time enacting legislation with a Democratic supermajority in both houses of the Legislature, Wilk doesn’t despair or succumb to merely partisan rhetoric. While he fully believes that “California is goi...

Ruf Homers Late, Giants Rally Past Red-Hot Mariners 6-5

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – Pinch-hitter Darin Ruf homered with one out in the seventh inning and the San Francisco Giants beat Seattle 6-5 on Tuesday night, ending the Mariners’ six-game winning streak.

Ash from nearby wildfires fell inside the Coliseum as the A’s stretched their AL West lead over second-place Houston to 5 1/2 games.

Pet microchipping bill heads to governor, but other animal welfare efforts come up short

Only one of three bills championed by animals rights groups emerged from the California Legislature this year, a session where the COVID-19 pandemic hung over Sacramento like a wet blanket. On Gov. Gavin Newsom’s desk, awaiting a signature, is a bill requiring all Fluffies and Fidos to be microchipped before leaving animal shelters and rescues. “Honestly, we’re long overdue for this bill to be law,” said Judie Mancuso, founder, CEO and president of Social Compassion In Legislation, which pushed ...
