Daily Fetch 6.16.11: SYTYCD?


The State Budget was passed yesterday in Sacramento.  It seems a little (ok, a lot) earlier than usual.  Probably because the Legislature was in danger of losing their paychecks if they didn’t pass the budget.  As part of the budget, there is a new online sales tax.  Which is an F-U to Amazon… Oh, another part of the budget is to kill Redevelopment Agencies… Which is an F-U to (outgoing) Harry
The Merc Editorial Board would like the Governor to veto the aforementioned budget… Let the games begin…
Speaking of budgets… the City of San Jose approved all kinds of fee increases this week… Water – check.  Sewer – check.  Garbage – check.  Storm drain services – check… Any other fees you can think of?  Well, they are going up too…
Speaking of Harry… Apparently he thinks it’s a good idea to run for San Jose City Council in District 10 when Nancy Pyle is termed out next year. Seriously.  San Jose Inside has the details.  Harry is one thing… but former Police Chief Rob Davis running?  That’s quite another.  Perhaps his $200k+ pension and benefits package isn’t quite enough.  He needs another $81k to top it all off…
As if the budget/pension battles happening up and down the County weren’t bad news enough for fire departments, the Civil Grand Jury chimes in about how fire departments waste lots and lots of money responding to non-fire emergencies…
Yesterday, the Merc Editorial Board supported more charter schools being approved by the County Board of Education… and last night the County Board of Education heard from parents about the same thing.
You know that horrible San Antonio Shopping Center in Mountain View? Well, it is getting a “facelift” according to the Daily News (and the Mountain View City Council)…
While Gilroy may be famous for garlic (and young families)… Morgan Hill is trying to stake its claim as the dance capital of Santa Clara County.  Morgan Hiller Ryan Ramirez is in the top 20 on SYTYCD… For those of you who are not as cool as us, SYTYCD is So You Think You Can Dance
