Dawgs Blog would like to welcome my newest sponsor and supporter of my site.

As you see above his name is Douglas Maner and he is an attorney with 35 years’ experience which included 22 years in the Stanislaus County District Attorney’s Office.

He has taken over 100 jury trials to verdict, most of which were serious felonies, including 11 homicides, 10 attempted homicides, 16 gang crimes, 17 robberies and nine sex crimes. He is also experienced in juvenile law, domestic violence, sex crime defense as well as drug and theft cases.

As a senior deputy district attorney for over 20 years he has thorough knowledge of the inner workings of the District Attorney’s Office. That experience gives him insight and what it takes to take their cases apart.

The cases he takes run the full gamut from people accused of the above listed crimes down to simple misdemeanors, or DUI’s.

He also has experience in veteran’s treatment court representation, he is death penalty qualified and is currently on the special circumstances/death penalty panel of attorneys are appointed to the most serious murder cases by the Stanislaus County Superior Court, and has been the primary attorney in six death penalty cases to date.

DAWG SAYS:

Obviously more than qualified to help you out, but on a personal note I got to sit down and talk to Mr. Maner and I was impressed with the confidence that he exudes, and you can tell there’s a bulldog attitude behind that to get things done. And his insight to the District Attorney’s Office could be very valuable.

If you need help he is someone I think is more than qualified and who could help you take care of your situation.

LOCAL MISSING PERSON: JAMES ANTHONY ANDRADE……

MISSING FROM A GOLD PANNING TRIP TO THE FOOTHILLS

12-14-2017


I was contacted today by a woman by the name of Donna Creekmore – Lyon. Her son 41 yr old James Anthony Andrade has been missing for about 45 days.

The best information that she has that he took a trip to the grass Valley area to do some gold panning with a friend, the friend apparently returned home without James. They have not seen or heard from James since then, and she thinks that the friend has disappeared, or the least they have not been to locate him.

A report has been filed with the Nevada County Sheriff’s Department, and in addition to Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department also.

He has been missing for some time but they reports were just recently filed.

Anyone with any information in regard to this young man’s disappearance. Please contact:

Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department @ (209)–552-2468,

Nevada County Sheriff’s Department @ (530) 265-1471

Or crime stoppers

Or if there’s any information that anyone wants to relate through Dawgs Blog I can relay that information to the family.

OK NOW I AM DISGUSTED…….

WHAT IS IT WITH THOSE MUNCHIE EATING COLORADONS?


1-17-2018

From FOX 40

Toilet troubles caused a United Airlines flight from Denver to Hawaii to divert back to land when they were halfway over the Pacific Ocean.

The issue doubled the flight time and cut passengers’ vacations short.

“Everyone was disgusted,” passenger Rich Anderson told KDVR.

United Flight 1219 departed Denver at 11:40 a.m. Sunday. It was scheduled to be a direct flight to Hawaii.

Rich and Kristin Anderson were heading to Kauai to celebrate their wedding anniversary, but when they were halfway over the Pacific Ocean, there was a disturbing announcement.

“We were probably three hours from Hawaii and they announced that the toilets were all full,” Kristin Anderson said.

The pilot told passengers the toilets had not been serviced in Denver.

“The pilots failed. They didn’t do their job. This should not have happened. This was human error. There was no act of God. There was no weather. This was just human error.”

They were forced to double back and land in San Francisco to fix the problem. The situation meant the scheduled flight time went from eight hours to more than 16 hours.

“The pilots failed. They didn’t do their job. This should not have happened. This was human error. There was no act of God. There was no weather. This was just human error,” Rich Anderson said.

Earlier in the flight, Anderson tried to use one of the bathrooms, but it was locked.

“They had locked them. I had gone back partway through to the bathroom and one of them was locked. The flight attendant said that one is not working. I think they were locking them as they were filling up,” Anderson said.

“I am very sorry that our lavatories had reached capacity while Flight 1219 was en route to Lihue,” the airline said in a letter to passengers. “A decision was made to turn back and land in San Francisco where arrangements were made to change planes. I can appreciate that this experience was disappointing and unpleasant.

“We regret the unexpected delay and inconvenience this caused you. Your satisfaction is important to us so I hope you will accept our offer of apology on the next screen.

“We welcome the opportunity to provide better service for you the next time you fly with United.”

United is offering 10,000 bonus miles or a $200 travel voucher to affected passengers. But the Andersons said that is not fair compensation, given everything they went through.

“Bottom line is they ruined a lot of people’s vacations yesterday. They gave us a really crummy start. There were a lot of elderly people and people with little tiny kids,” Rich Anderson said.

HIGH SPEED RAIL COSTS WENT UP 35%……..

THE TRAIN THAT WILL GO NOWHERE FOR A LONG TIME


1-17-2018

From KCRA 3

Officials are raising the projected cost of the first phase of California’s bullet train by 35 percent, to $10.6 billion.

The extra $2.8 billion comes on a 199-mile segment in the Central Valley that is partly under construction. The California High Speed Rail Authority board discussed the increase Tuesday.

The added cost is due to delays in obtaining rights of way and barriers needed along parts of the track, among other things.

It boosts the overall cost of the project to nearly $67 billion, which officials say they hope to recover later.

The project has been plagued by cost hikes and lawsuits since it was projected to cost $40 billion in 2008.

The bullet train is supposed to connect San Francisco and Los Angeles in under three hours by 2029.

Remember this train will not feed and house the homeless, or reduce crime, just put money in the pockets of people like Diane Feinstein’s husband.

Why is California the poverty capital of America?


1-16-2018

From the Los Angeles Times

The generous spending, then, has not only failed to decrease poverty; it actually seems to have made it worse.

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, some states — principally Wisconsin, Michigan, and Virginia — initiated welfare reform, as did the federal government under President Clinton and a Republican Congress. Tied together by a common thread of strong work requirements, these overhauls were a big success: Welfare rolls plummeted, and millions of former aid recipients entered the labor force.

The state and local bureaucracies that implement California’s antipoverty programs, however, resisted pro-work reforms. In fact, California recipients of state aid receive a disproportionately large share of it in no-strings-attached cash disbursements. It’s as though welfare reform passed California by, leaving a dependency trap in place. Immigrants are falling into it: 55% of immigrant families in the state get some kind of means-tested benefits, compared with just 30% of natives.

Self-interest in the social-services community may be at fault. As economist William A. Niskanen explained back in 1971, public agencies seek to maximize their budgets, through which they acquire increased power, status, comfort and security. To keep growing its budget, and hence its power, a welfare bureaucracy has an incentive to expand its “customer” base. With 883,000 full-time-equivalent state and local employees in 2014, California has an enormous bureaucracy. Many work in social services, and many would lose their jobs if the typical welfare client were to move off the welfare rolls.

Further contributing to the poverty problem is California’s housing crisis. More than four in 10 households spent more than 30% of their income on housing in 2015. A shortage of available units has driven prices ever higher, far above income increases. And that shortage is a direct outgrowth of misguided policies.

“Counties and local governments have imposed restrictive land-use regulations that drove up the price of land and dwellings,” explains analyst Wendell Cox. “Middle-income households have been forced to accept lower standards of living while the less fortunate have been driven into poverty by the high cost of housing.” The California Environmental Quality Act, passed in 1971, is one example; it can add $1 million to the cost of completing a housing development, says Todd Williams, an Oakland attorney who chairs the Wendel Rosen Black & Dean land-use group. CEQA costs have been known to shut down entire homebuilding projects. CEQA reform would help increase housing supply, but there’s no real movement to change the law.

Extensive environmental regulations aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions make energy more expensive, also hurting the poor. By some estimates, California energy costs are as much as 50% higher than the national average. Jonathan A. Lesser of Continental Economics, author of a 2015 Manhattan Institute study, “Less Carbon, Higher Prices,” found that “in 2012, nearly 1 million California households faced … energy expenditures exceeding 10% of household income. In certain California counties, the rate of energy poverty was as high as 15% of all households.” A Pacific Research Institute study by Wayne Winegarden found that the rate could exceed 17% of median income in some areas.

Looking to help poor and low-income residents, California lawmakers recently passed a measure raising the minimum wage from $10 an hour to $15 an hour by 2022 — but a higher minimum wage will do nothing for the 60% of Californians who live in poverty and don’t have jobs. And research indicates that it could cause many who do have jobs to lose them. A Harvard University study found evidence that “higher minimum wages increase overall exit rates for restaurants” in the Bay Area, where more than a dozen cities and counties, including San Francisco, have changed their minimum-wage ordinances in the last five years. “Estimates suggest that a one-dollar increase in the minimum wage leads to a 14% increase in the likelihood of exit for a 3.5-star restaurant (which is the median rating),” the report says. These restaurants are a significant source of employment for low-skilled and entry-level workers.

Apparently content with futile poverty policies, Sacramento lawmakers can turn their attention to what historian Victor Davis Hanson aptly describes as a fixation on “remaking the world.” The political class wants to build a costly and needless high-speed rail system; talks of secession from a United States presided over by Donald Trump; hired former attorney general Eric H. Holder Jr. to “resist” Trump’s agenda; enacted the first state-level cap-and-trade regime; established California as a “sanctuary state” for illegal immigrants; banned plastic bags, threatening the jobs of thousands of workers involved in their manufacture; and is consumed by its dedication to “California values.” All this only reinforces the rest of America’s perception of an out-of-touch Left Coast, to the disservice of millions of Californians whose values are more traditional, including many of the state’s poor residents.

With a permanent majority in the state Senate and the Assembly, a prolonged dominance in the executive branch and a weak opposition, California Democrats have long been free to indulge blue-state ideology while paying little or no political price. The state’s poverty problem is unlikely to improve while policymakers remain unwilling to unleash the engines of economic prosperity that drove California to its golden years.
