I don't care if someone is here legally or illegally when it comes to hit and run. I think this isRead More a great system suggestion. I wish I had a way to install a GoPro system in my car that would capture three minute segments in 360 degrees. Kind of like a black box in aircraft but also have an image file in addition to a systems analysis file. This sure would help in determining blame in an accident....

This is funny a complete political segue for a Commi Democrat / Liberal to introduce more ways toRead More apply taxes. i.e. additional $15.00 DMV fee to pay for Yellow Alerts.

This is a great idea but why do drivers hit and run I believe many don't have insurance or are underRead More the influence of drugs and alcohol no drivers license or registration, undocumented and drivers with warrants. We have the technology to take many drivers off the road remember it's a numbers game with hit and runners. How about on your license tags we start putting chips that send out a signal when your insurance is cancelled let's say after 15 days or license is suspended or a warrant is issued that would alert other drivers and law enforcement via the electronic road alert signs.think about this when you drive in the fast tract lanes your transponder sends and receives a signal which chargers your account but also alerts CHP that you don't have a transponder or possibility are a single driver in violation of the law. Along with a camera that would only take a picture for violators. Believe it or not most of the technologies are already in place in most cases we just need to combine and in prove the technologies already in place. This would also deter drivers from stealing your tags because there's is expired. This is a much different world we live in then years past. I was born in the 40s and raised in the 50s we had respect for others and family and not to say most of us don't but for the ones few that don't respect life and would leave you to die on the road side let's get them off the road.this technology could also block your cell phone from working if you don't have a hands free device in place. One last thing start noticing how many drivers just don't stop at a red light or stop sign they just slow down and roll through what don't they understand that Stop means Stop.

The best action one can take to greatly reduce one's water footprint at the individual level is toRead More adopt a plant-based diet. By far, animal agriculture uses the most water in California. Taking shorter showers and adopting other actions to save water is great, don't get me wrong, but a drop in the bucket compared to the water-intensive meat and dairy industries. The world's leading water scientists met at the International Water Institute in Stockholm, and concluded that if we want there to be enough water to meet everyone's needs as our world's population expands to 9 billion and more droughts are predicted, then the world must shift to a plant-based diet. It takes 4000 gallons of water for a day's worth of food for a meat-centered diet, but only 300 gallons for a plant-based/vegan diet. Please think about it and choose water-wise, plant-based foods.
Stuart Ebert July 23, 2014 at 02:34 pm
Some good ideas posted above, some really bad. Building a pipeline from the Midwest WOULD NOTRead More address the environmental degradation that is now under way in CA. And let's understand the concept of POSITIVE FEEDBACK mechanisms in environmental/ climate science. Basically, the hotter it gets, the less precip we receive. The less precip we receive, the drier it gets. The drier it gets, the more trees die. The more trees die, the more fires we get. The more fires we get, the hotter it gets and so on and so on . . . The time for action on climate change was 20-30 years ago. CO2 levels are too high now, and half life in the atmosphere is 100 freaking years.
Virginia Johnson July 23, 2014 at 03:21 pm
All the while the Calif. State, County and Local Governments are trying to charge more for water,Read More penalize us millions of dollars for not conserving Even More than we already have! And...now they want to add at least one-half million dollars in new homes and units with taxpayer dollars to fund for low income housing in Los Angeles that will contribute considerably to the Water Shortage. Also people with swimming pools (I don't): Actually save on water by not having to water their lawns. The Guilt trips by our Feds/States/Counties and Cities are out of this world crazy.

AES has been ok but remember they did not pay UUT taxes and saved tens of millions. NRG paid the UUTRead More taxes and so did every other independent business. AES is not a utility like SCE.
Barbara Epstein July 23, 2014 at 05:57 pm
Many of us have long suggested that AES be a partner with the citizens of Redondo Beach to combineRead More their power plant property plans with the Waterfront Revitalization Project. A totally new waterfront project would allow citizens, along with a preservation organization like the "Trust For Public Lands", manage. To gift the Waterfront to CenterCal, a private corporation, for a 99 years lease is an immoral taking of public ocean front property and hands it over to some guys to do with as they please. By combining the two projects Redondo could become a unified, truly special place that would profit from increased long term tourism and provide the residents of the South Bay with a great place to live. This weekend we are going to our grandchildren's soccer games in Camarillo, where the planners have developed an amazing sports complex, small hotel, parks, and restaurants that make Camarillo a great family destination for thousands of participants. We all love going there because the planning has been exceptional, with so many recreational, not commercial, amenities.
Henry Xavier July 23, 2014 at 08:27 pm
people who come here will buy "Gucci bags" i don't think so. And what a sure charge onRead More property tax in that zone to make up the current tax AES paid. And what happens if we need the electricity for electric cars and stuff. Why not convert some of that land for SOLAR power. Cant what for all the redondo beach moms and there brainy ideas. peace h.x.

Jan Brewer Orders Full Review Of Drawn-Out Execution Reuters Posted: 07/23/2014 8:49 pm EDT Updated:Read More 07/23/2014 9:59 pm EDT Print Article ********************************************** Wait, we kill mainly for revenge because it is known that the death penalty does not deter crime and in fact is more expensive than prison for life. We are nuts to put people to death but worry about the compassion of how this death is administrated! Somewhere I read "thou shall not kill" but never said it alright to kill if you commit a horrible crime! It is also true that the experience of the death penalty has been that we have put innocent people to death! The problem with the death penalty including those cited above is that killing people makes us just as barbaric as these criminals especially when used just for revenge! Why do tough on crime love the death penalty? Is this a form of pandering like when Republicans pander to the Christian-Right that have us believe they are fighting for the unborn and fighting against the "immorality" of being Gay?

The future can be bright for anyone that is willing improve themselves to becoming more marketableRead More in the job market. That means getting a good education, whether it be College or Trade School. I taught for 18 years and I was disappointed in the effort of some of my students. They wanted good grades without doing the work necessary to achieve good grades. I also see Latinos (before you decide to crucify me understand that I am Latino as well!) who want better paying jobs without the warranted skills. I'm all for better pay for it needs to come from the individual, not the government!
Manny Reynoso July 24, 2014 at 06:18 am
Opportunities for better pay are created when an individual betters themselves educationally. It isRead More the individual, not the government that will lead to better pay!

Sheri Ellis-Patterson July 21, 2014 at 09:30 am
Many of the studies show that the vaccine isn't as effective as they've been touting. In fact, aRead More huge number of children getting this are children who have been vaccinated. So your statement above that the vaccine "prevents the disease" is not accurate. The parents withholding have done their research and believe the vaccine isn't effective and has serious risk for some children. It's time for the vaccine manufacturers to start making higher quality and safer vaccines.

This lawsuit will never make it into a courtroom. And that's exactly how she and her lawyer want it.Read More The bus company will instead settle for some huge amount out of court. Why? Because that will still be cheaper than the cost of fighting it in court. That's the huge flaw in our system, and that's why there are thousands of bogus claims filed every day.
