RIVERSIDE, Calif – The Riverside County Board of Supervisors chambers morphed into a sound stage recently, filling in on a family friendly film when a production company lost its original shooting location. That supporting role was just the idea Supervisors Jeff Stone and John Benoit had in mind last year when they proposed amending a county ordinance to give commercial production companies temporary, free use of county-owned property and facilities during filming.
BLYTHE, Calif – On Tuesday, September 9, at about 6:00 in the morning, officers from the Blythe Police Department responded to a reported disturbance with a gunshot at an apartment in the 200 block of North Lovekin. When officers arrived, they contacted the residents of the apartment. They learned that a male subject, who did not reside at the apartment, but did have a child with a female who lived there, had attempted to shoot another male outside the apartment. Parties at the residence identified the suspect as Kyle Cole, age 25, of Blythe.
BLYTHE, Calif – On July 15 the Blythe Police Department investigated an overnight burglary to a home in the 400 block of N. Second Street. The victim of the burglary told police that she had been awakened by the sound of her back door opening. The caller got up and saw a thin Hispanic male in his late teens or early twenties, about 5’8” tall, standing in her living room. The female yelled at the intruder and he ran out of the home.
SACRAMENTO, Calif – Californians who want to know if they overpaid sales or use tax when buying a car or truck should verify their local tax rate (www.boe.ca.gov/taxrate) and review their vehicle registration paperwork carefully.
Sales and use tax rates vary widely across California, and consumers may be unaware if they are being charged the correct amount of tax. When purchasing a motor vehicle, a buyer should generally pay the tax rate where it will be registered (usually the owner’s home address). MORE

September 14, 2014
BLYTHE, Calif – On September 10, Governor Edmund G. Brown Jr. signed the Healthy Workplaces, Healthy Families Act of 2014 (AB 1522) by Assembly member Lorena Gonzalez (D-San Diego), which provides paid sick days to the millions of Californians—roughly 40% of the state's workforce—who do not currently earn this benefit.
Almost a half a decade ago myself, my wife Terry and a team of competent, animal law attorneys huddled in conference calls and discussed multiple ways and means in an effort to halt the BLM from attempting to zero out the Adobe Town wild horse herd of Wyoming. Money was spent, research was done, plaintiffs were identified and one wild horse advocate and photographer was given hope that the herd which she loved might be saved, and then the potential promise
was yanked out from under her, just as it was done this past week when history repeated itself much to the chagrin and pain felt by photographer Carol Walker of Wild Horse Freedom Federation.
I have always felt guilty about the impotence experienced when attempting to save the Adobe Town herd; of being handcuffed and helpless in failing to be of any assistance. And I have talked openly about letting Carol down, I was hoping that it would be different, this time, but sadly it was not. MORE
Physician assisted suicide is becoming a bit more popular in America. A New Mexico judge recently ruled that terminally ill, mentally competent patients have the right to ask a physician to end their lives. This would make New Mexico the fifth state to make it legal.
Q: As hard as I have tried over the years, I am still dealing with the same feelings of extreme inadequacy. Whatever I do to improve myself or to be successful, it is never enough. Last week I went to a holiday party. It was hosted by a very successful guy—my age—in his beautiful, enormous house. Having gotten back into exercising and playing music again, I was feeling pretty good about myself. But soon after I walked inside, I began to feel less than. I was comparing myself to this guy, and to the other guests, and feeling like a complete failure. It was overwhelming. I could not get out of there fast enough. What is my problem and can I ever expect to solve it?
A: Many of us kick the crap out of ourselves because we can never measure up. No matter what we do, accomplish or achieve, it's never quite good enough. It never quite gets us "there." Well, here’s how one man expressed his similar frustration to the men in his men’s group:
