    Urban school districts from Los Angeles to Philadelphia are experiencing declining enrollment in traditional public schools as more parents enroll their children in charters, depleting millions in per-pupil funding from district budgets. In states experiencing population growth, such as Arizona, charter schools help relieve overcrowding. But for districts that are struggling financially, the student flight is costly. …

    Last year the UK TV personality Ursula Presgrave generated controversy by her Facebook posting: “Anyone born with down syndrome should be put down, it’s just cruel to let them lead a pointless life of a vegetable.” Aside from the remarkable ignorance she displays about people with Down Syndrome, I’m troubled by the dehumanizing rhetoric. She thinks we should “put down” some of our fellow human beings, as though they are nothing but animals. It may seem at first glance that her comments have no real connection to the assisted suicide debate, because she is calling for murder, not suicide. However,...

This time the mob turned their malice on a black Trump supporter. They surrounded him and spewed vile racial insults at him. In their world, if you're black you're not allowed to think for yourself. And if you try, the mob will turn on you and make you into an unperson - a sub-human not worthy of respect or the most basic dignity. It's despicable. And it's been on display at anti-Trump protests for months. This is just...

Among them were the Council on American-Islamic Relations, the Islamic Society of North America and the North American Islamic Trust.

    Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said critics should stop focusing on Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton's email controversy and start concentrating on the issues facing the country. "This goes on and on and on. We're reaching the final stages of a primary," she said on ABC's "This Week" in an interview that aired Sunday. An internal watchdog determined in a report sent to Capitol Hill last week that Clinton and her senior aides didn't comply with the State Department's record-keeping policies. The report said Clinton never requested permission to use her personal server, and it "would not" have been approved, in part,...

Born to an Alexander Valley grape-growing family in 1923, Saini (sigh-EE-knee) was 20 when he died early on in World War II’s deadly, three-day Battle of Tarawa. He was buried on the Pacific atoll along with more than 1,000 other Marines and sailors and more than 5,000 Japanese and Korean soldiers. Informed of his death, his shattered immigrant parents in Healdsburg, Mike and Mary Saini, awaited word of where he was interred and how they might return his earthly remains to Sonoma County for proper, Catholic burial....

To many legislators, the Second Amendment is the real loophole. Most Register Opinion readers already know this, of course, but they might not understand some other dismal realities: Law enforcement is generally not on our side on this.

That's one of the findings of a new Field Poll released Thursday, just 12 days before the June 7 runoff. Seven out of 10 likely voters across the political spectrum rated the economy as a top concern, according to results from the Field Poll conducted for the USC Schwarzenegger Institute for State and Global Policy.

The presumptive Republican nominee was speaking to an enthusiastic crowd of supporters in San Diego's convention centre. But outside around 1,000 people demonstrated against the billionaire tycoon, in tense scenes which included police pepper spraying some of the protesters. Police arrested one man who climbed a railing separating protesters from officers. His arrest led demonstrators to spray water and throw empty plastic bottles at officers. In another tense exchange, police shoved back demonstrators to separate them from...

Legalize 11 million.” Another: “Trump, Shame of America.” Another: “Jesus would not vote for Trump.” And: “Racist, go home.” As the rally progressed inside, a few protesters — including two women...

In this case, two young anti-Trump protesters in San Diego yesterday were holding the Mexican flag upside down and the Telemundo cameraman gave them directions on the proper way to hold the flag. This is followed by a really nasty attitude by one of the protesters including spitting in the direction of Marcus. But, hey, that behavior is understandable...

Somehow, it has to be taught that this is not a good idea. This is actually stupid.” The memorial was...

Construction costs of the project have escalated so rapidly since the times state voters narrowly approved a bond issue that instead of constructing new tracks in the Bay Area and Los Angeles, the trains will share existing tracks with conventional freight and commuter trains, drastically increasing travel time, and making the trains half-fast at best.

The killing of Kate Steinle in July 2015 and the arrest of Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez put San Francisco's leaders on the defensive as critics and outside politicians called for a change in the city's sanctuary law. Despite national outrage, San Francisco's Board of Supervisors on Tuesday upheld those protections for people in the country illegally. The...

    If the Trump/Sanders debate proceeds as planned in California, you’re about to witness one of the most important moments of a 2016 general election that hasn’t even begun yet. To say such a debate would be an unmitigated disaster for Hillary Clinton would be the understatement of the century. Let’s explore why. First of all, Hillary Clinton outright rejected a debate request from Bernie Sanders ahead of the June 7th California primary. Given Sanders’ recent momentum, as well as her need to persuade a significant number of his supporters to back her in November; such a denial was not only...

    Gov. Jerry Brown’s solution to California’s affordable housing crisis is to build, build, build, and not let local politics get in the way. Earlier this month, the governor introduced a bill under which proposed urban housing developments that meet local zoning requirements and reserve some portion of their units for low-income residents would be exempted from any additional environmental or local government review. The governor’s theory is that neighborhood opponents and other parochial interests have consistently blocked or downsized badly needed development projects, leading to a housing crisis in which California's major cities are increasingly unaffordable for most of its...

Out. Out. Out," Trump, from the podium, told security officials. "Don't hurt him," he added. "I say that for the TV cameras, but don't hurt him." It's unclear what happened to the protester.

    Ruling in the case of a Richmond teenager serving 50 years to life for a 2011 killing, the California Supreme Court said Thursday that youths serving potential life terms for murder are entitled to parole hearings within 25 years under a new state law. The court also ruled 6-1 that the teenager, Tyris Franklin, should have another hearing before his trial judge in Contra Costa County to allow witnesses to describe his mental state, lack of maturity and other factors that might have contributed to the crime. That evidence wasn’t allowed at Franklin’s sentencing hearing, because the 50-to-life term was...

    The latest auction in California's cap-and-trade market for greenhouse gases fell sharply below expectations, as buyers purchased just 2% of the carbon credits whose sale funds a variety of state programs -- notably, the proposed high-speed rail project. The quarterly auction, conducted May 18 and announced Wednesday, will provide just $10 million for state programs, including $2.5 million for the bullet train. The rail authority had been expecting about $150 million. Whatever prompted the lack of buyers, the auction is a stark example of the uncertainty and risk of relying on actively-traded carbon credits to build the bullet train. The...

    They believe she will send American jobs to other countries, that she supports fracking and the deportation of immigrants. "I do not support Hillary because every one of her policies is against the American people," said Alfonson Guitterez. "She flip flops on everything that she proposes to the American people. It's clearly stated in the literature that she lies."

  • Courts To Decide Future Of Man’s Private Island In Suisun Bay

    A legal battle is raging in Bay Area courts over a landowner’s plans to transform an island in the Delta into a playground for Silicon Valley. Secluded Pt. Buckner Island in Suisun Bay has become well known for its kite-surfing and other sports. When John Sweeney bought the small Delta island, it was in pretty bad shape. The levees were breached in several places, allowing water to cover part of it. As the new owner, Sweeny says “by law” the Suisun Marsh Preservation Act now makes that his problem. “When you buy the property, you have a compliance period where...

    In a slap in the face to the family of Kate Steinle, a young woman who last year was killed by an illegal immigrant, San Francisco has decided to retain its status as a sanctuary city. The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved legislation that upholds the city's policy on limiting law enforcement from providing assistance to federal immigration authorities aiming to apprehend or deport individuals. The board's decision allows illegal immigrants like Juan Francisco Lopez-Sanchez to escape proper punishment. Sanchez, who had been deported five times before, shot and killed Steinle last summer while she was walking along the...
