    YORBA LINDA (CBSLA.com) — An intruder fatally shot by a Yorba Linda homeowner was intoxicated, “hallucinating” and talking about “zombies” and a gun, authorities said Monday. Paul Michael Bracamontes, 22, of Fullerton, was shot after breaking through a sliding glass door in the 5100 block of Wendover Road about 3:15 a.m. Sunday, Orange County sheriff’s Lt. Jeff Hallock said. Sheriff’s deputies did not identify the homeowner, who did not know Bracamontes, he said. Considering Bracamontes’ “bizarre” behavior, the shooting appears to be justified, Hallock said. The case will be turned over to the Orange County District Attorney’s Office for routine...

    For five years, he was known as the leader of the Free World. But for the first several years of his life, Richard Milhous Nixon had a more modest title: farm boy. Wednesday will mark the date, 100 years ago, of a winter day so cold that Hannah Nixon was advised it would be better to bear her fifth son at home than risk traveling in the chill to a hospital. That was the day a small, kit-constructed home surrounded by citrus trees saw the birth of the man who would become the 37th president of the United States.

    PASADENA (CBSLA.com) — The pair of quakes that hit near Yorba Linda last night and Wednesday morning were detected by a new earthquake warning system that was showcased at Cal Tech. A 4.5-magnitude temblor struck one mile northeast from Yorba Linda at 11:23 p.m. Tuesday. Less than 10 hours later, a 4.5-magnitude quake struck two miles from the same location. “In the case of the first event last night, here in Pasadena, we got about nine seconds warning before the strongest shaking was felt here,” said Douglas Given from the U.S. Geological Survey. “In the case of the second quake,...
  • Will Alexander Resignation Leter (Protests Leftist Bias at Taxpayer-Supported Nixon Library

    I'm writing to offer my resignation from the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace Docent Guild. While the decision was tough, the reason is simple: The president, who admirably redeemed himself in the sunset of his life from the monstrous shadow of Watergate, is now being enthusiastically dishonored at his own library by a "Manchurian" figure, Dr. Timothy Naftali, director of NARA. Naftali is so driven by his personal ideology that none of his unquestioned brilliance and tireless audacity is now capable of producing an ounce of basic common sense. What is that basic common sense? That presidential libraries are built,...

    Library Throws Book at Nixon by Brian Calle Some controversy over the recently revised Watergate exhibit at the Nixon Presidential Library & Museum in Yorba Linda has provoked some questions over presidential libraries, their value, purpose for public consumption and their role in the remembrance of past presidents. One docent at the Nixon library, my Register colleague Will Alexander, opted to resign in protest of the new exhibit after 10 years of volunteer service. And friends and former colleagues of Richard Nixon have been critical of the museum's new director, Timothy Naftali. Some critics have even suggested that the...

    YORBA LINDA – From former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Barbara Franklin to TV personality Ben Stein, friends and former staffers of President Richard Nixon are being drawn together this weekend to celebrate, reminisce, and debate the meaning of Nixon's legacy. The weekend-long celebration marking 20 years since Nixon came to Yorba Linda to open his library and birthplace includes some events that are free and open to the public. President Nixon dedicated his library in Yorba Linda on July 19, 1990. The library is now part of the National Archives and Records Administration. The Richard Nixon Foundation is calling it...

  • Global Fireball - Al Qaeda Planning New Environmental Terror Attack “Forest Jihad”

    Extremists are threatening an environmental disaster by sparking a series of catastrophic wild fires. We first posted on this last year. Western intelligence agencies fear that Al Qaeda terrorists are planning a “global fireball” in a new departure in its war on the West. Deliberately lighting forest blazes in Europe, the US and Australia would not only stretch emergency services but leave insurance companies facing multi-billion pound damage bills as the credit crunch bites. The fires would also create a pollution disaster, with billions tons of climate change gases escaping into the atmosphere. The so-called “forest jihad” is being championed...

    City Council Defies Public Notice Requirement on Town Center Zoning Without properly notifying the public, Councilman Ryan amended the Town Center Planned Development zoning, and the City Council rezoned the Yorba Station shopping center for 72 residential units mixed with commercial. The public may have been notified of the proposed PD zoning, but Station Center shop owners and nearby residents had NO opportunity to question or respond to the change, which was performed the same night of the meeting. The Brown Act requires that cities notify residents of agenda items 72 hours in advance. This zone change was improperly noticed,...

    Yorba Linda City Clerk Will Not Certify "Right to Vote" Initiative In what appears to be a classic legal delay tactic on behalf of the City of Yorba Linda, City Clerk Kathy Mendoza will not certify the "Yorba Linda Right to Vote Amendment." On advice from her independent legal counsel, the Clerk would not certify the petition, based on a 1999 Appellate Court interpretation of the State Election Code. Rather than go into the complex details of the case and the actions of the City Clerk in this text, you can download the complete report at Yorba Linda Forum....

    A California man dubbed a "Satanist" on an online message board has posted photos of himself dancing on President Ronald Reagan's grave, raising the ire of the former chief executive's admirers. Posted on Ruthlessreviews.com (warning: vulgar site), the photos show a thin, white man likely in his 20s wearing an AC/DC T-shirt and having hopped over the fence that protects Reagan's grave.
