I would want to be briefed by both sides, but from the text, it appears the police are reportingRead More what he said at the time. He could not know in advance whether they were armed or not - since they could have had concealed weapons. Unless he was a trained and experienced gun fighter, once the action started he was acting on pure instinct and terror, as any vet will tell you about their first time in dangerous combat. The episode was unfortunate indeed, but unless I'm missing something here, there is no homicide case due to age and circumstances.

What kind of a stupid, malicious idiot would pull that sort of a prank? I agree that the kid whoRead More made the phone call to the SWAT team about his opposing video games player was a sore loser, which is why he did that, but he should be criminally prosecuted, made to pay the bill, and perhaps do some community service in order to pay off that big bill. Hopefully, that kid will learn a lesson if he is prosecuted for his prank, which he should be.

This article leaves out the TAKE BACK event in Fairfax on Saturday! Not only will the FairfaxRead More Police be collecting unused prescription drugs, medications and supplements as part of the National Drug Take Back Day. But the Town of Fairfax, Marin Sanitary Service and Sustainable Fairfax have expanded this TAKE BACK DAY to include electronics waste recycling and paper shredding services. There will also be zero waste education, and free compost (for Fairfax residents only). http://sananselmofairfax.patch.com/groups/events/p/fairfax-take-back-day

Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

Tamara, what social studies standards are you talking about? The Common Core only covers standardsRead More in literacy and math. There are no CC standards for science or history. Are you talking about state standards?
Tamara April 23, 2014 at 08:35 pm
Common Core has science and social studies standards - they were written after math and ELA - theyRead More have not been implemented yet. They are more controversial so math and ELA was put thru first to pave the way.

FOR THOSE WHO LIKE AMAZON PRIME OVER NETFLIX: Here's an interesting article from today (23 Apr 2014)Read More about how Amazon Prime just got HBO to stream at least some of its older content, plus "HBO GO," to Amazon's new Fire TV box, thereby making NetFlix upset because NetFlix (nor any other streaming service, including HULU) has never been able to get any HBO content; and so Amazon has scored a real coup!

thanks for posting, while there is no actual evidence shown here, the idea that the dog stayed withRead More Ms Sanner all night is heart warming. However the time line does become more linear with the fact that the dog was found in the AM near the car and that is when the father was notified about a lost dog and eventually called the Police at 2:30p. hopefully that will be the end of story because an accident is better news for hikers than foul play...
Andrea Schnitzer April 23, 2014 at 06:36 am
She was 50 years old so it would not be uncommon or unusual that Marie's father did not know she wasRead More missing. When they found the dog they called the number on the tags. The male friend she met was staying at the mountain home inn. Marie left because she had to go to work the next day. She had hiked mt tam a million times so probably felt she was fine to hike down. Unfortunately she slipped and fell. It was a very tragic accident. End if story.

I don't believe this kid is competent enough to make those decisions. Those kids need to beRead More prosecuted to the fullest and if the does judge does not agree he needs to step down.
Pat Mcloughlin April 23, 2014 at 10:27 am
Sorry, Autistic boy, but there are a multitude of crimes here. These so called 'friends' abused youRead More terribly ~ called 'bullying', & that alone cannot be tolerated. Then, there is animal cruelty involved, another terrible crime, plus, harassment of all kinds, leudness, & who knows what else. These 'friends' need to be charged & made aware of the seriousness of their deeds, punished accordingly & helped through proper mental councelling.

It is probly the parents that want to drop the charges, not the boy. They shouldn't. I don'tRead More know why they would want to drop the charges.

I agree with B. Dub 100%! How was this kid able to scale a fence and just walk right over to theRead More plane? TSA: for all the harassing you do in the terminal...you ain't all that!! As far as the kid being a runaway..maybe he does face some serious abuse issues at home. He's damn lucky to be alive. But, I raised three boys, and a 16 year old boy can runaway for any collage of reasons. My kids never ran away but, I'm wondering if the fact that the plane was going to HAWAII has anything to do with it. It sounds a little compulsive to me. CPA need good follow up on this. Thank you lucky stars kid!

There are two separate issues here. The first and certainly the most obvious is security failure.Read More The second is to determine what is in the best interest of the teen, as well as the public.. He needs a psych eval, at the very least. Then again, so does most of the public.
