THE MAPS PART 9

On July 31, 2001, jury selection began in Herzog’s murder trial.

The trial was also held in Santa Clara County, due to the notoriety of the pair,

And concerns that it would not be a fair trial otherwise.

After two weeks of deliberations, the jury returned with 3 counts of murder for Cyndi Vanderheiden,

Paul Cavanaugh, and Howard King – and for being an accessory to the murder of Henry Howell.

On December 10th, 2001, Herzog was sentenced to 78 years in state prison.


CALIFORNIA’S TRAIN TO NOWHERE UPDATE

CALIFORNIA’S TRAIN TO NOWHERE UPDATE

A bridge in Madera County that’s part of the bullet train project, shown last week, had a serious problem with corroded tension strands that broke in December 2019.


CALIFORNIA’S TRAIN TO NOWHERE UPDATE

A series of errors by contractors and consultants on the California bullet train venture caused support cables to fail on a massive bridge,

Triggering an order to stop work that further delayed a project already years behind schedule, the Los Angeles Times has learned.

The bridge is longer than two football fields and is needed to shuttle vehicles over the future bullet train right of way,

And existing BNSF freight tracks in Madera County.

Authorities have yet to finalize a plan to repair the bridge.

Late last year, crews installed temporary steel supports to prevent it from collapsing.

Hundreds of pages of documents obtained by The Times,

Under a public records request,

Show the steel supports snapped as a result of neglectwork damage, miscommunications and possible design problems.

“It is a horrible sequence of mistakes,” said Robert Bea,

emeritus professor of civil engineering at UC Berkeley and co-founder of its Center for Catastrophic Risk Management.

The bridge is part of a 31-mile stretch of construction under contract to Tutor Perini Corp.,

 a major construction firm based in Sylmar. The company declined to answer a series of written questions or to make a statement.

The bridge is part of Gov. Gavin Newsom’s plan for a 171-mile, $20.4-billion bullet train operation from Merced to Bakersfield.

DAWG SAYS: IT IS NO PROBLEM THE TAXPAYERS WILL JUST HAVE TO COUGH UP MORE.


WILLIE BROWN ON KAMALA HARRIS

WILLIE BROWN ON KAMALA HARRIS

Kamala Harris should say no to vice presidency

OP ED FROM THE SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE BY WILLIE BROWN

AUGUST 8,2020

WILLIE BROWN ON KAMALA HARRIS AS VP PICK

If Joe Biden offers the vice-presidential slot to Sen. Kamala Harris, my advice to her would be to politely decline.

Harris is a tested and proven campaigner who will work her backside off to get Biden elected.

That said, the vice presidency is not the job she should go for,

Asking to be considered as attorney general in a Biden administration would be more like it.

Being picked for the vice presidency is obviously a huge honor, and if Biden wins,

Harris would make history by being the first woman to hold the job.

But the glory would be short-lived, and historically, the vice presidency has often ended up being a dead end.

For every George H.W. Bush, who ascended from the job to the presidency, there’s an Al Gore, who never got there.

DAWG SAYS: WILLIE BROWN KNOWS HER INSIDE AND OUT……


CHICAGO MAYOR NOW SAYING ENOUGH

CHICAGO MAYOR NOW SAYING ENOUGH

Looters smash business windows along Chicago’s Magnificent Mile

WATCH THE MAYORS EVIL EYE TOWARDS THE END

CHICAGO MAYOR NOW SAYING ENOUGH TO LOOTERS

Hundreds of people smashed windows and looted stores in Chicago’s Magnificent Mile,

The city’s downtown shopping district, on Sunday night and early Monday morning, according to videos and reports from the scene.

Officers shot at least one person and chased suspects toting bags full of goods,

tackling some to the ground and blocking off streets as they sought to restore order to the area.

It’s not clear what sparked the unrest.

But it followed a tense day between police and Black residents after police shot and wounded a man in the city’s South Side,

Sparking a violent standoff between dozens of officers and angry neighbors.

A Chicago police spokesman said as of early Monday morning,

Police had no details on how many arrests had been made or how widespread the damage was to businesses downtown.

DAWG SAYS: NOW THE MAYOR LIGHTFOOT WANTS PEOPLE TO STEP UP AFTER NOT STEPPING UP FOR ALL THESE MONTHS,

AND ENABLING IT FOR SO LONG AND LOSING SO MANY BUSINESS’S IN THE PAST FEW MONTHS.

SOCIAL MEDIA POST OF THE DAY

SOCIAL MEDIA POST OF THE DAY

So we’re into our 5th month of fighting COVID-19.

These words made me laugh But there’s a lot of truth mixed in to consider. . .

SOCIAL MEDIA POST OF THE DAY COVID FUN STUFF

1. So let me get this straight, there’s no cure for a virus that can be killed by sanitizer and hand soap?

2. Is it too early to put up the Christmas tree yet? I have run out of things to do.

3. When this virus thing is over, I still want some of you to stay away from me.

4. If these last months have taught us anything, it’s that stupidity travels faster than any virus on the planet.

5. Just wait a second – so what you’re telling me is that my chance of surviving all this is directly linked to the common sense of others? You’re kidding, right?

6. If you believe all this will end and we will get back to normal just because we reopen everything, raise your hand. Now slap yourself with it.

7. Another Saturday night in the house and I just realized the trash goes out more than me.

8. Whoever decided a liquor store is more essential than a hair salon is obviously a bald-headed alcoholic.

9. Remember when you were little and all your underwear had the days of the week on them. Those would be helpful right now.

10. The spread of Covid-19 is based on two factors: 1. How dense the population is and 2. How dense the population is.

11. Remember all those times when you wished the weekend would last forever? Well, wish granted. Happy now?

12. It may take a village to raise a child, but I swear it’s going to take a whole vineyard to home school one.

13. Did a big load of pajamas so I would have enough clean work clothes for this week.
