Re: “San Mateo County offers resources for disabled youths transitioning to independence

Thank you for covering this event! Events like this never really get exposure, and this is a great way to advocate and educate the public on the needs of people with disabilities in this county. One small correction, the Transition to Independence Fair was hosted by the San Mateo County Commission on Disabilities, specifically our Youth and Family Committee chaired by Joseph DelAguila and Veronica Ferreira (I may have misspelled her last name). This committee has worked very hard to provide youth and families in San Mateo County services and advocacy to ensure a positive quality of life. A huge applause to them for such a successful event! I wish there would have been more input in this article from the commission and the committee organizing the event.

Re: “Gov. Brown signs bill creating database for sea-level rise reporting

Yes, more government workers to collect data, gee you think that if climate change is such a problem that Brown would spend the money on the rising tides, fires and other problem instead of billions on a bullet train that's construction will be overseen by the same people who brought you the overprice, low quality bay bridge.

Re: “PG&E emails may have violated rules, judge says

PG&E is a corporation and corporations rule. Peevey rules. Governor Brown backs Peevey 100%. Brown rules! His imminent reelection rules. Screw Judge Yuckie. Uber uns alles.

Re: “Family of woman fatally shot by deputy alleges negligence; deputies receiving training for mental health emergencies

" the dispatcher asks Tony Serrano-Garcia if his sister is being violent, and he answers "yes.""

"a knife-wielding Yanira Serrano-Garcia chased the deputy 157 feet before he fatally shot her"

I would say she was being violent yes and the officer did what he needed to do to protect himself. It is a tragedy that she died but the officer, nor the dispatcher did anything wrong. The question was asked if she was being violent and the answer was "yes". That is pretty cut and dry. If you chase a cop with a knife, 10 inch or paring knife, what do you expect to happen. From what I know if this situation the family should lose this trial. Hate to say it but they should also have to pay all the legal bills for the country to defend it. I don't think it is fair to make tax payers cover those costs.

Re: “Family of woman fatally shot by deputy alleges negligence; deputies receiving training for mental health emergencies

The family is the one that called the cops and said this person was a skitzo. Which means that this person is unpredictable and can be violent. Some cops are bad others are doing their job. The kid was negligent in describing the word violent. The family should take some blame

This is very sad that San Francisco cops and its chief Greg Suhr have already become Ed Lee and Walter Wong's personal watchdog.

Re: “PG&E officials removed for improper communications

Since all those on the PUC are appointed by politicans, in the future can we have the names of the politicans that appointed and voted for their appointment?

Oh no Silicon Valley has to prove that a product actually works before they can get it approved by the FDA, all that terrible regulation!

Re: “Silicon Valley struggles to speak FDA’s language

They could just say they are a health supplement and basically say we can't prove our gadget does anything.

Re: “Spa owner pleads not guilty to pimping charges

38 year old and a 44 year old? Did they arrest the mama-san or the actual prostitutes? I'll take Ting Sun instead.

Re: “Red light cameras removed in South SF, but enforcement continues at problematic intersections

This is kind of a non-story. The real big red light camera story right now is in Millbrae, when they have just made a tenfold increase in the number of tickets for making right turns at the bottom of the Millbrae Avenue offramp from the southbound 101. Warn your friends and co-workers to be very careful when they drive towards the Millbrae BART station, or SFO.

Re: “Red light cameras removed in South SF, but enforcement continues at problematic intersections

I would like to say that Carol Matsomoto is a buffoon. It's a wise thing to do the exact opposite of what she says, as the council did. The voters of South San Francisco need to stop voting on name recognition and actually evaluate the candidates on what they say and what they actually do, if that were the case Matsomoto would have been gone long ago. Lets hope the Nov. elections are different than the norm in SSF and people get in office that will work for the voters not their own agendas.

If you have too many violations a day, the problem is the intersection, not the driver.

Have all the traffic engineers gone to India?

Get out of your office and "engineer"!

So if it were a cash cow for the city, then would have the red light cameras continued?
