  • Bill Plaschke: Clayton Kershaw's actions were Cy Young-worthy

    The first perfect game in American League history was thrown by a pitcher who ended it with a taunt, defending his teammates against an insult, screaming at the final batter, "How do you like that, you hayseed?" The year was 1904, and the pitcher was Cy Young. On Wednesday night at Dodger Stadium, imitating that long-ago barb with an inside fastball, a battling Clayton Kershaw proved worthy of winning the award that carries Cy Young’s name. Although Kershaw will never admit it, his pitch that plunked the Arizona Diamondbacks’ Gerardo Parra in the elbow in the sixth inning of the...

    SacBee: Capitol Alert ^ | 9/23/8 | Dan Walters
    Democratic Assemblywoman Nicole Parra, who is being forced of the Legislature by term limits this year and has been squabbling with her party's leaders, is planning a final act of defiance - supporting the Republican candidate for her San Joaquin Valley seat. The Fresno Bee's Capitol correspondent, E.J. Schultz, broke the story of Parra's plans, which stem from her family's long-running political and personal feud with state Sen. Dean Florez, D-Shafter, and his family. Parra's father, Pete, lost his seat on the Kern County Board of Supervisors in one manifestation of the feud. Schultz's account in the Fresno Bee continues:...

    SACRAMENTO, Calif. A Democrat in the California legislature has been kicked out of her Capitol office for not supporting the party's state budget proposal. Assemblywoman Nicole Parra of Hanford said Monday she wasn't surprised about being punished but was "a little taken back" by Democrats' decision to move her out of the Capitol. When she abstained from Sunday night's budget vote, the bill fell nine votes short of the two-thirds majority needed. Parra was the only Democrat present who didn't vote for it.

(That's Parra in the photo at right.) Bass ordered Assemblywoman Nicole Parra of Hanford out of her fifth-floor Capitol office and into an office building across the street where legislative staffers work. “They wanted us to have everything packed up by 4 p.m.,”...

    Two members of the board that appointed Judge Kathe Tuttman now want her booted from the bench, charging that former Gov. Mitt Romney did not inform them of her involvement as a prosecutor in a botched case that freed a child rapist. “This is ridiculous. The Romney people didn’t do their investigation,” Governor’s Councilor Marilyn Pettito-Devaney said. Romney has not responded to numerous requests for comment about the case of child rapist Daniel Parra, who walked free after prosecutors headed by Tuttman missed deadlines in their failed bid to have him committed as a sexually dangerous person in 2005.

    SACRAMENTO -- Nearly every time I've walked into the Capitol building this week, I've been buttonholed by one Republican or another who says something like, "Did you see that Nicole Parra voted for driver's licenses for illegal immigrants?" It's all part of the GOP's search for anything they can use to help Republican Danny Gilmore in his campaign to unseat the Democratic assemblywoman who represents the west valley 30th Assembly District. Republican strategists believe the district, while it is heavily Latino in population, is conservative, especially on social issues like immigration, abortion and guns. They hope to paint Parra as...

Accompanied by local police chiefs and several high profile crime victims, Schwarzenegger also said he has appointed Susan Fisher of Sacramento to the newly-created position of Crime Victim Advocate and that he is expediting a program to use global positioning systems to track dangerous criminals. He said he supports "The Crime Victims Bill of Rights," a comprehensive legislative proposal authored by Assemblywoman Nicole Parra, D-Hanford, to help crime victims overcome the hardships caused by criminal acts. Schwarzenegger said he has directed...

    SACRAMENTO — Assemblywoman Nicole Parra and her father traveled to Cuba in early December on what has reportedly become an annual event organized by one of California’s most powerful lobbyists and political fundraisers. Parra, D-Hanford, and other participants said the trip was arranged by Darius Anderson, founder of one of Sacramento’s premiere lobbying firms and a top fundraiser for former Gov. Gray Davis. Since travel to communist Cuba is generally prohibited except under a license from the U.S. government, Anderson’s repeated trips there with lawmakers, business people and others raise a number of questions. Why is a lobbyist arranging religious...

    Did you know that in California, child molesters and rapists are a protected class? It's true. Not only are California landlords banned from using the state's Megan's Law database to decline renting their properties to sex offenders, they're not even allowed to warn other tenants that these paroled criminals are now their neighbors. If they do the first, they can be fined $25,000 for housing discrimination. But if they don't do the second, they can be sued for failing to protect tenants against a known danger. Landlords are caught between a rock, a hard place and the California State Assembly's...

    SACRAMENTO -- Under threat of a subpoena, embattled Secretary of State Kevin Shelley agreed Thursday to testify voluntarily before a committee investigating his handling of federal election funds. Assemblywoman Nicole Parra, D-Hanford, the committee's chairwoman, said Shelley would be sworn in as a witness, leaving him vulnerable to possible perjury charges if he lies. Shelley is willing to testify under oath at the committee's next hearing Feb. 3, said spokeswoman Caren Daniels-Meade. "If that's what the committee wants, yes," Daniels-Meade said. Parra's Joint Legislative Audit committee is holding hearings on a stinging audit report that found Shelley mismanaged millions of...

At the conclusion of a committee hearing late Monday night, Parra said she would seek a subpoena if Shelley had not agreed by noon Tuesday to appear before the committee's next hearing. Tuesday afternoon, she released an exchange of letters between herself and Shelley in which the secretary of state asked for more time to consult with his attorneys before responding.

    When Kern's Democrat Assemblywoman Nicole Parra said "no stone would be left unturned" in her committee's investigation of scandal-plagued Secretary of State Kevin Shelley, she must have meant only the light stones. Next week's hearing by the Joint Legislative Audit Committee seems destined to fall short of Parra's pledge to hold Democrat Shelley accountable for his management of millions of federal Help America Vote Act dollars. A review by the state auditor concluded Shelley's management of federal voter outreach and election reform funds was inept and much of the money was used to promote Democrat election efforts. Shelley also is...

    SACRAMENTO -- Kern County Assemblywoman Nicole Parra found herself at the center of a storm of controversy Friday over her handling of a hearing on allegations of wrongdoing by Secretary of State Kevin Shelley, a fellow Democrat. Republicans and even one Democrat said it looks like a partisan "whitewash" may be under way. Parra insisted that is not the case. A report by the state auditor last month found that Shelley mismanaged millions of dollars of federal voter education funds. The audit followed news reports of allegations that Shelley had used some of the money for self-promotion and partisan political...

    SACRAMENTO -- Assembly Democratic leaders thought they were doing Assemblywoman Nicole Parra a favor when they installed her as chairwoman of the Assembly Veterans Affairs Committee. It's no secret that she was given the job to give her a chance to win points with one of the more conservative voting blocs in her tight re-election battle this year. It didn't work out that way. When politically active veterans got together in Clovis on Monday night and listened to both candidates, they endorsed her Republican opponent, Dean Gardner. The fact is, Parra probably never had a reasonable chance to win the...

    SACRAMENTO -- It's been a roller coaster first term for Democratic Assemblywoman Nicole Parra. When the two-year legislative session ended late last month, she had won credit for passage of a bill to make it easier for parents to check for convicted sex offenders in their neighborhoods by putting the Megan's Law database on the Internet. She was also instrumental in boosting state funding to protect military bases from closure. But she also spent most of the time walking on political eggshells to avoid making mistakes that could be exploited by her Republican challenger in what is expected to be...

That is a measure to put sales taxes back on farm fuel and equipment and use the money to subsidize health insurance for farmworkers. Ross himself has come under fire for...
