Does anyone else laugh when they hear that the secretary of homeland security is Janet Napolitano?
Good job, city council, banning dumpster diving. I guess digging through recycling was already illegal, and that doesn't stop anyone. That's really where we need to be turning our attention right now, stopping people from recycling discarded furniture and eating thrown-out food. Every time I've dumpster dived I felt like I was doing something illegal.
Ha! Read this sentence from the article about the proposed NBA arena at Cal Expo and tell me if is sounds familiar: The fairgrounds are 42 years old and in sore need of a makeover. Buildings require seismic retrofits. Pipes need replacing. Asphalt walkways are crumbling.
I totally agree. Every time I go to the fair I feel like I'm taking my life into my own hands. Also the locker rooms at the fair are very cramped and are the laughing stock of the NBA. Someone in the comments brings up the issue of the track:
The large graphic claims the basics will be the same, however no mention of a horse race track. Horse racing has been a tradition of the State Fair since its beginning. Why Cal Expo continues to ignore the horse race track and the many jobs and history that will be lost without it is a mystery to me. How can one call it the California State Fair and have no horse racing ? Even the smallest of fairs in California have a horse race track. If the track is not allowed to stay or be rebuilt would be a loss for all. Let's get a clue Cal Expo and keep horse racing alive and all the jobs it creates for the State Fair and for California. The State Fair without horse racing is like a hotdog without a bun. If your not going to allow horse racing at the State Fair you might as well put a Indian casino at the fair. Im sure California could use another one of those...Born and raised in Sacramento..
Save our track! I will chain myself to a horse to stop this arena if need be, despite the fact that I am scared of horses.
Did you guys read the interesting SNR article about the mayor and the possible changes at city hall? That should have been the cover story instead of that mildly interesting thing about local skaters. It seems like Kevin Johnson's office is just in tatters at this point.
