I had two stories in the Sunday paper:
This onewas about Red light camera violations going way down at the intersection of Mission Boulevard and Mohave Drive after Caltrans lengthened the yellow light by 0.7 seconds. I’ve got a bad feeling I wrote “Mohave Boulevard” in the story instead of “Mohave Drive.” Good thing street signs can’t call and demand corrections.
And this one is about Paddy’s Coffee House in Union City giving up live music rather than paying another $400 to get a license for copyrighted music.
From the cops:
A motorist lost control of his car and crashed into a tree while driving to pass a dump truck on Mission Boulevard south of Paseo Padre Parkway. The driver of the dump truck tried to assist, but did more harm than good. He forgot to put his truck in park. The unattended truck rolled right into the car that smashed into the tree.
Police arrested a knife-waving man who was ranting about the government outside the Armed Forces Recruiting Center.
A student at Horner Junior High School lost an iPod to a knife-wielding robber.
Four men with handguns robbed the safe and laptop from the McDonalds near Fremont Boulevard and Mowry Avenue.
Police arrested a man they say attacked his ex-girlfriend with a broken bottle at the El Camino Real bar in Niles.
A customer at CJ Liquors got between a drunk man and his pronography and nearly paid a dear price. The store clerk wanted the drunk man out of the store. The customer tried to help, and ended up punching the drunk pornography peruser in the face several times. The drunk left the store, but came back shortly with a knife yelling
at the customer, “You’re going to die.” There was a short struggle before the the drunk left again. He was later arrested.
