Feinstein Calls On Filner To Resign

This is not to excuse Filner in any way but Feinstein lost all credibility with me when she called Edward Snowden a traitor. It's time for her to go, as well as Filner.

Audit: NCTD Contract Monitoring “Inefficient" And "Ineffective”

The NCTD Board is comprised of local elected officials. When I wrote to the twice about the way a disabled student was treated, asking for a review, I received zero response. So it ended up as a headline story in the paper with an apology from a NCTD employee.

So the next time I had a concern, I contacted County Supervisor Dave Roberts who was amazing not only in his rapid response to me but in NCTD's rapid response to Mr. Roberts. I had an answer to my concern, along with a copy of a study that had been done--all in a week.

Maybe we need fewer elected officials on the NCTD Board, replaced by people who care.

Biologists: Lone Gray Wolf Crosses Into California

This is the 21st century. We now understand the value of wolves and how to co-exist (if we want to). Misunderstandings and unreasonable fears are best left in the past. There are better ways than slaughtering, persecuting, scapegoating, shooting, trapping, and poisoning these amazing creatures. Knowledge and resources are available to protect both livestock and wolves, such as the program offered by Defenders of Wildlife.

While our first wild wolf in almost 90 years may not stay, he hopefully portends wolves rightfully reclaiming their heritage, and ours. I expect California to be a sorely-needed model on how we can co-exist. What a thrill it will be to someday hear the call of the wild that's been missing for too long.
