I'd like to commend my neighbor, Jake Messina, for alerting the driver that her van was on fire andRead More telling her to get out of the van. If the driver would have stayed in the car one or two minutes longer, we would of had a very different outcome to this story. Also, a BIG thank you to the Belmont Fire and Police for handling the situation with utmost professionalism and efficiency.

absolutely her rights were denied, if i have to drive behind cars with their fish stickers, and godRead More is good bumper stickers, than a woman has a right to display her choice to be an atheist
Pati beardsley April 20, 2014 at 08:46 pm
Her rights were violated. If "I" have to look at all the jesus propaganda, then I shouldRead More be able to voice my right to free speech. While I would never choose such a plate for fear that my car would get vandalized, I totally support this woman's right to request it.

I don't like debit cards either, it is a direct line to one's bank account. What I didn't like wasRead More my bank replacing my ATM card with a dual usage ATM/debit card without asking me...I made them cancel it and give me an ATM functionality card only. Some people don't have credit line established yet (like my college student son) and have no choice but to use a debit card instead of credit card. I take precautions and have it assigned to an isolated checking account, and urge son to monitor it closely (set up email alerts), good training for future financial independence.

I never use my debit card I'm any store . Cash majority of the time and credit cards and I disagreeRead More no nobody deserves this to happen to them.

Nola Loper April 20, 2014 at 05:56 pm
This is a really tragic story. It scares me. I work with several young people who put video gamesRead More ahead of their kids. They get the big earned income tax credit checks, buy game consoles, big screen tvs, games up the ying yang. Their kids get yard sale flip flops, wear torn under sized clothes. They give their kids cough syrup to put them to sleep and stay up playing games. I pray no of them would ever do this.
B John April 21, 2014 at 02:23 am
Has nothing to do with video games. Raised like a POS acts like a POS. To young at 24?? It'sRead More the generation of 'look downs" staring at their phones all day with the entitlement aspect. 18 is a legal adult. Maybe Raise the age to 28 so mommy and daddy can coddle them longer and give out more 9th place soccer trophies. And for the record Obamacare sucks!!!

No William,what she needs is about 50000 volts of electricity.Fry the fat yom up nice and crispy.
David Greenberg April 20, 2014 at 10:39 am
So what you're saying william is that anyone who comes along and claims "PTSD",Read More "ABUSE", blah, blah blah should get a free pass? Why have laws then? The whole concept of making something a criminal act is that we want to discourage it from happening in the first place, by putting deterrents into effect. One such deterrent is PRISON, another is the Death Penalty. If this person was being abused, she had options BEFORE coming to this point - for whatever reason, she make a decision to kill someone, and a Jury of her peers determined her guilt. So off to jail she goes - hopefully FOREVER.

He should have taped her mouth shut years ago and maybe she could see her feet today. Damn largeRead More marge!! Her lawyer sucks! Should have said she was sleep walking and dreaming of cutting up a steak and drinking Mountain Dew. Lol!!!! She is so fat she must brush her teeth with twinkles !!!

Years ago I was comforted by seeing police cars in traffic. It felt somehow safer. Now they areRead More turning into rolling tax collectors. Now their job is two-fold, enforce the law AND make your ticket quota. I'm sure this helps pay for their inflated retirement. Without all this added revenue their jobs would be outsourced to another town or county.
Geo Kitta April 19, 2014 at 04:18 pm
Everyone is against paying taxes: taxes bad! - everyone wants the services that taxes support, likeRead More law enforcement - law enforcement good! Let's see, law enforcement good but no taxes... humm, wonder why they have become rolling tax collectors?
Sam Chetcuti April 20, 2014 at 06:14 pm
These following laws have been on the books for years: •86 for distracted driving violationsRead More •38 for pedestrian safety violations •25 for stop sign violations •10 for seatbelt violations If you can't abide by the law, then plain and simple you have to pay the piper. I live in South San Francisco and just like any other city we have traffic cameras to catch those that run red lights. The thing I don't understand is as to why there isn't a law to penalize those who hold up traffic. I am certain I am not the only one who has idled behind someone who is going to make a right turn but is stopped because of a red light. If there is cross traffic or any instance where another driver has the right of way, this isn't a problem. The problem arises when a driver will sit at a red light even though they can safely proceed with their right turn. I would dearly love to see the SSF PD and other police departments start giving people tickets for obstructing traffic for no good reason.

Stopping free-be behavior has to start some where.Every one wants to get something for nothing. ItsRead More the current culture,if this guy was a vetran,it would be ok. Freedom isn't free.
Igor April 20, 2014 at 02:16 pm
Ever heard of making a mistake? He didn't know it wasn't for free. If they want to charge than putRead More the damn soda machine behind the counter.
Igor April 20, 2014 at 03:03 pm
The more I think about it, the more disturb I get. Think about it. You go the supermarket. They wantRead More you to scan your own groceries. Bag your own groceries. They want you to put the money in the machine. Have they lowered the prices? No. Now when you go to fast food places they want you to do their job for them. Pour your own drinks. Do you get a discount? No. Seems to me the more places you go the more they want, you the paying customer to do their job for them. Put the soda machine behind the counter and do the work that you want the minimum wage increase for.

I heard it was a homeless man that was in the park often and slept there at night. I also heardRead More that another homeless man was attacked in Red Morton a few days earlier but was able to fend off the attackers. It is a sad commentary on our community if this is true.
Corinne Kason April 17, 2014 at 11:42 am
That's true Palomar. The poor fellow was a kind gentle soul - he used to be a teacher - he wasRead More beaten by young thugs, the same ones I imagine who beat his friend a few days earlier. I only hope the police follow up thoroughly to find he horrible people who did this.
Palomar Parkman April 17, 2014 at 12:39 pm
Homelessness is an unfortunate and heart wrenching part of our society. Almost all homeless areRead More harmless lost souls. It is a sick person (or people) that would do such a thing. I also hope they will find those people and lock them up for a long time.
Courtney Carreras April 20, 2014 at 07:20 pm
Though I agree that a lot of work has gone into the Ralston improvement plan, there are still someRead More big holes and inconsistencies in the plan for bikes. I have respectfully communicated my ideas and suggestions to help make this plan truly address all the users of the roadway including those who are the most vulnerable, pedestrians and bikes. I think all of us want a community where we can know our kids and neighbors can get around town safely and sanely. Ralston is a very busy thoroughfare and will remain so no matter the changes made. We all need to slow down and take more care to ensure all users can complete their travels safely no matter what their chosen mode of transportation. Be careful, be patient, Embrace the Pace! - especially during rush hours.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.

A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.
Sheila April 17, 2014 at 05:16 pm
Poor horse. I hope someone equine rescue unit will relieve him from his present circumstances andRead More either give him a good home or find him one.
