"unspent .32 caliber bullet"?? The bullet is the part of a cartridge that goes down rangeRead More when fired. I suspect we are talking about an "unspent .32 caliber cartridge" or "unspent .32 caliber round of ammunition".

The victim was obviously killed with an unregistered hammer. If the weapon had been registered, theRead More crime never would have happened. California hasn't gone far enough. We need to register all hammers, baseball bats and rolled up newspapers.

"Wagstaffe said that this latest arrest prompted a thorough interview by a detective, who foundRead More no evidence of any mental illness." Well Hell, if the DETECTIVE, who is NOT a Psychologist OR Psychiatrist didn't see any sign of mental illness, there must not be any, right? Stevie Wonder could see this woman has a mental problem, and does NOT deserve to sit in jail or be charged with a crime. She needs and deserves help, from a DR, NOT a friggen Detective! So now we're going to start arresting the elderly for being confused, or having possible dementia?!?! It's all about the $ right? $25k bail, for WHAT? This is so wrong!

"She Believe She Can Fly"....................................... She used to think thatRead More She could not go on......... And life was nothing but an awful song...... But now She know the meaning of true love...... She leaning on the everlasting arms...... If She can see it, then She can do it....... If She just believe it, there's nothing to it....... [Chorus:] She believe She can fly...... She believe She can touch the sky...... She think about it every night and day....... Stowing away on a Plane and fly away..... She believe She can soar...... She see herself running through that open door...... She believe She can fly....... She believe She can fly..... She believe She can fly..... See She was on the verge of breaking down...... Sometimes silence can seem so loud.......... There are miracles in life She must achieve......... But first She know it starts inside of her, oh...... If She can see it, then She can be it......... If She just believe it, there's nothing to it [Chorus] She believe She can fly...... She believe She can touch the sky...... She think about it every night and day....... Spreading her wings and flying away..... She believe She can soar...... She see herself running through that open door...... She believe She can fly....... She believe She can fly..... She believe She can fly.....

The $950 raised should be more than enough to send her on a one way ticket to Hawaii. Then she canRead More be their problem.

What has this got to do with the Graton Casino? Not a damn thing. You sure bring it up though toRead More spread innuendo and make judgements. Please print the facts and keep your judgements out of the articles.

I think it is good to shame the johns - the families should know, especially if they bring homeRead More diseases - the john are the reasons why the industry exists, and those that target minors are the worst. If you go to steal something, or murder, and don't get the actual job done - you should be let go, despite your clear actions of intent?
Sandy Murphey April 9, 2014 at 07:22 am
I guess the police assumes that if you respond to an ad from a hooker, and even more so if thatRead More alleged hooker is "13 yrs. old", and that you show up at an agreed meeting place, that if you're not stopped, you'll do the deed, and pay the price. This time they'll pay more than they agreed to pay. You might not mind their names being shown if your young daughter or grand daughter was the one they hoped to engage with. (sex and drugs....nice combo for a youngster) Note that they had other criminal records, like: " Kerri Sinkus, 49, of Santa Rosa, were arrested for solicitation of prostitution. Lauchaire was also arrested for possession of methamphetamine. Sacramento residents Jessica Carrillo, 20, and Kandice Jones, 21, were arrested for solicitation of prostitution Carillo was also arrested for violation of probation, while Jones was also arrested for outstanding warrants. Michael Foster, also known as Marcus Foster, 27, of Sacramento, was arrested for aiding in prostitution and violation of parole."

This crash was reported in at least three other news outlets and each chose to include anRead More explanation of who Cindy is, and on each site there was someone complaining about that. I think when someone famous is involved that gets reported because of the tendency towards sensationalism in the media. Patch in this case is sort of just re-reporting the news from other sites. But it could have been edited out as everyone in Napa knows who CP is (and if they don't they don't care). I would also like to hear about the child's family, and the circumstances leading up to the crash.
bluecollardoctor April 8, 2014 at 10:08 am
I am dismayed by the number of crashes recently that have involved "veering" orRead More "swerving" as if it was an impossible task for some people to keep their car in their own lane pointed in the right direction. At least when alcohol, sleep deprivation, or texting is involved we have an explanation. But when those factors are not involved it is really scary that we have here now a population of drivers who seemingly don't have the skills to operate their vehicles.

Some reports claim there was an exchange of gunfire and others not. Typical ambiguity from policeRead More shooting incidents

I guess it's routine to do an autopsy , but do we really care exactly how he died ? He had hours toRead More walk out alive .But made a decision to fire at the swat team .Bad choice .

Why didn't Target ask for a second piece of ID on such an expensive purchase?? Actually for anyRead More purchase using a credit card, another ID should be required.

Look at little old lady dougie try to correct someone's spelling: " Doug Strickland March 18,Read More 2014 at 08:27 am would I drive while texting? probably not. I'm older and don't have the experience of typing out 300-500 messages a day. But most people that fit the demographic DO have that experience, can do it without looking, and are actually safer than someone like me. I wear glasses, have a 50 year old's reflexes, and suck at texting without looking. But Sandy, we aren't the majority any more babe. Why should our (minority) physical and mental limitations be the burden of others? As for site (sic) or citations: AAA Foundation performed a study in 2013 that showed that the frequency and probability of accidents is not rising at the same rate as usage. Meaning: there are more accidents, but there are WAY MORE people texting and talking safely. Cell Phone Texting Accident Statistics Total percentage of people who have sent or received a text message while driving 37% Total percent of people who text while driving regularly 18% Total percentage of time spent driving in the wrong lane while texting 10% Total percentage of people under the age of 18 who admitted to texting while driving 46% Average amount of time a driver spends not looking at the road while texting 4.6 seconds Total percentage of respondents who support a ban on text messaging 80% Total times the amount a truck driver has of getting into an accident while texting opposed to concentrating on driving 23.2 "

If banning cell phone use in cars saves even one life it is worth it, especially if itRead More inconveniences people like Doug Strickland.
Belle (Orchid Lady) March 17, 2014 at 03:21 pm
I was so caught up in the idea of someone texting and possibly being under the influence ofRead More marijuana, I forgot to say how needlessly tragic this is. I send my sincere condolences to the families, friends and students who have been effected by this.
Dorie McKay April 15, 2014 at 11:09 am
There's been so many crashes in our county lately, and so needless and senselessly so. What areRead More people thinking?? Everyone knows to LEAVE THEIR CELL PHONES ALONE, behind the wheel. IT CAN WAIT. Another thing is the GPS in the smart phones, that one has to read the map for, instead of the GPS on the dashboard which 'speaks' and keeps one's eyes on the road and is safe and audible. I have a good Garmin one that is very sharp and prompts directions before a turn is needed so one is ready. This accident was such a tragedy and horrible.
Doug Strickland Is An Asshat April 15, 2014 at 01:04 pm
I agree. Although I want to add that my cell phone has a GPS that speaks. When I use it, I set itRead More for where I want to go, set it down, and then start the car. No need to look at it or touch it while driving.
Doug Strickland Is An Asshat March 19, 2014 at 10:28 am
And, in fact, that quantity shown for the US is for ALL wireless devices. Not just phones. YouRead More probably shouldn't count on Wikipedia for all your information. "# of active devices, including smartphones, feature phones, tablets, etc. Since users may have more than one wireless device, it is not equal to individual subscribers." Comprende? Take off your lead-lined novelty hat, and put on your thinking cap.

christopher papazoglow where have you been at the last two days , at first it looked like aRead More carjacking .then the teen ager became a woman , and that they all knew each other , yes you got to see what all news out lets have to say .
Ken Briggs February 13, 2014 at 05:35 pm
so who was the woman that looked like a kid ? if it was not for her all this would not of gotten outRead More . but guess the scum that started all this should stay in jail and then prison and no ngood time and they all should pay something for the cost of this screw up . thank the police for getting this scum off the streets for awhile .
christopher papazoglow February 13, 2014 at 05:48 pm
"....where have you been the last two days...." Uh, following the story, Ken. Yeah, iRead More heard all that, that you're talking about. What i HAVEN'T heard or seen is that "the report of kidnap came from them" that, supposedly, was "on the news today and all day". I asked a question of "reference" around 4 hours ago, and as yet haven't received an answer. From either April or anyone else who saw/read that "the report of kidnap came from them".
