This is what many of us are writing and warning people about. One group caught doesn't mean we're rid of this!

Many homeowners felt that the city will just go with the cheapest option, which is nothing. The group…Continue
My neighbor had a visitor over the weekend, who left his car unlocked. With his laptop and check book in sight. Needless to say it only took a couple of minutes for someone to come by and take them. 30 minutes later the thief was already attempting to cash one of his checks for a hefty amount!

The Daily Breeze has the corrected information in their paper today and on their website.

“As far as what protections the driver's have if they hit a skateboarder, it is of course always dependent on the nature of…Continue
