California Qb Outdoes Even Cam Newton’s Elusiveness On Wild Hail

Reports through June 30 show a 26 percent increase in such assaults since realignment. Simultaneously, the state Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation saw a 15 percent drop in inmate-on-inmate assaults within state prisons, while attacks on employees dropped 24 percent as the prison population dramatically declined last year, according to official website statistics obtained through a separate public records request by the AP. Los Angeles County, which houses by far the largest county jail population in the state, experienced a 44 percent increase in inmate-on-inmate assaults last year compared to an increase of 21 percent in its inmate population. Sheriff's spokesman Steve Whitmore attributed the additional 704 assaults to "sheer numbers." The average daily jail population increased by more than 3,000 inmates since realignment, about 4,300 inmates over designed capacity.

California Hostage Situation Unfolds After Gunman Shoots Officer In Los Angeles Suburb, Police Report

Its a boring drive without much visual delight to keep your eyes alive and you keep following the interstate up to Sacramento after which you get onto State Highway 50. Sensational seafood at the Fog Harbor restaurant on Pier 39 As you get closer to Lake Tahoe, the road begins to climb and while it appears flat you sense the gradient by the engine straining and the speed dropping. The Jeep Grand Cherokee wasnt fazed by this. Its V6 petrol has enough grunt but the uphill trudge also means you consume a lot of fuel. On average expect to pay around 4 dollars for a gallon of unleaded, fuel prices fluctuate depending on the proximity to large towns or metros as well. <br>Read more:

After the officer was shot, a policewoman trying to help and shield him fell and was slightly injured. "The female officer began running back down the avenue. She collapsed in front of us ... and they slung her over the shoulder like a sack and took her out," witness Kimberly Edwards told KABC-TV. The female officer was treated at a hospital and released. Both injured officers have been with the department for at least a decade, Mejia said. It was unclear whether the gunman was wounded. <br>Read more:

As time closed out on the first half of a California Interscholastic Federation Southern Section Southeast Division semifinal between Muir High (Pasadena) and Norwalk High (Norwalk), Muir quarterback Dejon Williams had to find a way to buy time so his receivers could get free down field. To be more precise, the 6-foot-3 passer had to kill 18 seconds before he could find a celebrities tapes free man downfield in the end zone. In the process, Williams eluded between four celebs and eight defenders (depending on what you count as an attempted tackle), then connected with teammate Marceles Clash in the end zone on a pass play that officially registered 38 celebrities tapes yards but included a pass that was definitely released from farther out than that. Heck, Clash probably ran more than 38 yards in his own backfield before passing the ball. Unfortunately for Williams and his teammates, the wild touchdown would be the final truly fantastic highlight of Muirs season; while the touchdown gave Muir a 28-14 lead at halftime, Norwalk rallied in the second half to capture a 35-28 victory. <br>Read more:

California water woes hit hard in driest year on record

But the driest year on record has left the reservoirs so depleted - and the delta so fragile - that state water officials say they may be able to provide just 5 percent of the water he and others were expecting for next year. Other sources of water, including resources from a federal project that also pumps from the delta, are also drying up, prompting cities to dip into reserves and forcing farmers to scramble. "It's scary, because you don't know how you're going to come up with the balance of your water," Coleman said. Last week, he agreed to pay $160,000 for water from other sources - about three times the amount he usually spends. The water districts that supply Coleman and farmers like him in the state's San Joaquin Valley were told last week that barring an unexpectedly wet winter, the state would be able to provide 5 percent of the water that districts had contracted to buy for next year. <br>Read more:

California cities re-introducing clean energy incentive

While San Francisco was forced to shut down its PACE program in 2010, the city is now looking to revive the scheme, now known as GreenFinanceSF. San Francisco is one of a growing number of cities and counties that are re-introducing PACE incentives throughout the state. State leaders are hoping that federal regulators soften their stance on PACE programs, which could also make their comeback possible in other parts of the country. San Francisco Supervisor Mark Farrell, who introduced a resolution last week to begin the process of re-establishing the citys PACE program, told SFGate that although there was already "a real movement out there to push forward on this," a reversal by the Federal Housing Finance Agency would be "a game-changer." SFGate points out that the housing market is in better shape now than it was in 2010, when the Housing Finance Agency stopped the program. In addition, the report says the agency may soon get a new director who is more open to PACE. Some PACE schemes remained in operation despite the federal opposition and have demonstrated a successful track record, SFGate added. The San Francisco resolution would solicit proposals from companies rely on private financing. <br>Read more:
