what do they consider "Extremists" a while ago I would think it would be aligned withRead More middle east terrorism.....but recently democrats and liberal lines say its anyone against their policies and pointing those being republican... Our country has become so divided that a portion is now calling the other just because a difference of opinion "Extremist" or even further "terrorist".....is that what hope and change was to become....hatred

I don't understand all the complaining. Obamacare is the biggest government plan passed sinceRead More Social security & Medicare. Do you think these were implemented without problems?

I was able to sign up my wife in less than 15 mins. Same medical provider better coverage &Read More $140.00 per month less premiums. Lets look at the real bad guys here, Medical Providers & Insurance Co. My wife's premiums were $535.00 per month. now, basically, the same coverage is costing over $900.00. WHY!!!!!!

All he is proving is how stupid conservative Republicans really are! What a shame!

So as a Republican, because of what some loser says that makes me stupid? Clearly someone needs toRead More go back and get an education( or at least common sense) and learn that people within the same political groups aren't all the same. You would know this if you took government your senior year of high school.

The county has not replaced any of the county staff that left over the last six years and they areRead More proud of that fact. They saved a lot of money in doing so even though the county services delivery capability still suffers. Local volunteers fill in. Many of the paid personnel are doing "double duty" and at fixed wages not keeping up with inflation growth as reflected in modern industry standards. There is no question that the Sheriff's Department and Probation is not currently staffed to meet the needs of the new rehab center for qualified rehab personnel; that the fear is that the deputies will turn into "mini-probation officers" thereby neglecting their other county duties for patrol and investigation. Basically, jailers are not rehabilitation specialists. Essentially, this article say the county is moving ahead anyway with the physical structure and "borrowing" personnel (trained? It doesn't say) "other departments personnel" despite the hardship. By the way, who are the "other relevant county departments and service providers" exactly? Are the service providers outside agencies - contractors or religious organizations? It will be important to know if these groups are qualified to do the job or is this just another boondoggle to use "volunteers" to get around spending the money which otherwise would go into other construction projects that benefit some privileged groups in the county? Without the qualified personnel in place this program doesn't have a chance to succeed. That is why it is important to know the details.

This has got to be a boondoggle. A trip paid for by the voters. It shouldn't happen. There has gotRead More to be a serious reason why the only "university" Placer County has is a religious knock-off of the real thing?

There are many universities in the United States, and to search in the UK by financing a trip fromRead More taxpayers who can't afford to take their own vacations, to me is irresponsible. Why do you need to travel out of the country? I am certain there are private universities in California that would be interested in a Placer County campus. The article says that the costs will be minimal...what is the figure?
