Daily Fetch 05.20.14: Latest GOP heavy hitter for Liccardo steps forward as Guardino wants to raise your taxes, and Potted plants in San Jose are in danger as criminals get weirder

Tuesday, May 20th, 2014

The latest GOP heavy hitter to pump thousands into helping Sam “Cheaties” Liccardo is Lonnie Smith, no, not the baseball player, silly, Saratoga’s Lonnie Smith who in 2012 dropped in excess of $100,000 smack-a-roos to unsuccessfully get Mitt Romney into the White House.

GOP Darling Sam Liccardo

Fetch has been scratching its tummy and chasing its tail trying to figure out why the SVLG CEO, Carl Guardino, is pushing so hard for his bike-ride buddy Sam to replace lame-lame duck Chuck Reed.  Thanks to our spies and this article by Jason Green from the Palo Alto Daily News it is becoming clearer and clearer what motivates Guardino.  He wants to raise transportation taxes, again, and may use Sam, if he makes the mayoral runoff, in the campaign mail and television advertisements to try and pass the 30-year county-wide tax increase and help his bike ride buddy become Mayor all at the same time.  Ingenious, if true.

So, just how many more tax increases will the residents of Palo Alto, Morgan Hill, Gilroy and other areas of Santa Clara County that won’t be near a BART station have to shoulder to help Guardino, Sam and others achieve their dream?  What will this mean for a sales tax measure in San Jose to bolster public safety and other city services?

Now onto other non-GOP fat cats backing Liccardo news

What next, door mats?  Downtown San Jose has a serial potted plant thief on the loose terrorizing front porches.  Luckily, the thief was caught on camera, now if only there were some po-po to nab the bandit.

Potted plants appear safe in this SJ Evergreen neighborhood as this crook decides to torch two cars parked in this home’s driveway.  So, the lesson to be learned for SJ residents is that it’s best to leave nothing of value in front of your homes.

Fetch says, “Sock it to me,” Sake San Jose.  TheSanJoseBlog announces what looks to be a fun event in SJ’s Japantown this Thursday where the 9th Annual Sake San Jose event will take place starting at 5:30 pm.  Get the deets here.

Jeff “I am the Law” Rosen has decided to seek the death penalty against the accused killer of Sierra LaMar.  Rosen has used his authority judiciously when it comes to seeking capital punishment, as this is the first time Rosen has sought the ultimate penalty.

Mi Pueblo Market is back in business as it is emerging from bankruptcy proceedings with a clean balance sheet in a process that was expedited to meet a deadline by some lenders.  Nate-dog from the SVBJ has the scoop.

The San Jose Biz Journal is also reporting that some local IBM scientists accidentally created a new, stronger, better plastic…by accident.  This sounds eerily similar to what happened in Weird Science, do you think they still wear those lab hats at IBM?

President Obama is a job-creating machine.  The proof is scientific and precise.  See, Obama visited Walmart last week and this week the retail behemoth announces it will add 1,000 jobs to expand their digital operations in Sunnyvale.

USA Today also backs up the President’s prowess when it comes to adding jobs as it reports on business expansion and how it calculates state-by-state to jobs being created.

San Jose’s Weed Wars continues today as the city council try again to come up with a resolution that has evaded them for several years.  That means the council chambers will be chock full of incense, rastafari braided hair, tye-die tees, and bic lighters for a second week in a row.

And one potential 2016 GOP presidential candidate, Marco Rubio, is having his own war with weed as he refuses to answer whether or not he ever lit up and partook (is that a word) in some cannabis consumption.  Let’s see, a 2.1 high school GPA is a pretty good indication that Marco did.  What do you think?

Daily Fetch 02.28.14: Madison Nguyen has amnesia, Honda cruising in new poll, and Rocha’s Challenger is Dr. Phil in Drag

Friday, February 28th, 2014

Gee, who’d of thunk that some on-line, geek-fest money scheme like Bitcoin would crumble into chaos and cost dip$hits tons of money?  Those Bitcoin believers must be feeling like Liccardo’s contributors right about now.

Clearly Madison Nguyen did not read this post on SJ Inside from Rich Robinson before she sent this piece into the Merc for publication.  She must have forgot that a mere 8-months ago she was the deciding vote to NOT restore the burglary investigation unit.  Madison should call 911 and get rushed to VMC to get checked out for amnesia.  Oops…forgot that you can’t call 911 in San Jose and get rushed anywhere.

There is a reason why our Hottie AG Kamala Harris wants to take guns off the street…See below.

Those pesky damn guns and Republicans…one Grand Old Party member running for Governor of California forgot to register his handgun and another GOP candidate for State Assembly decided to cap off a few “warning shots” as he and his friends were about to get their A$$ES kicked and was arrested and convicted.  Gotta love the 2nd amendment.

Sike!  One BART board member thought banning strikes in the wake of two transit worker strikes last year would get support from other board members…NOT.  Looks like the dysfunction will continue just like it does for BART’s family.

In more dysfunctional news, SJ Council-hunk Don Rocha’s challenger will be like Dr. Phil and try to group session the city council into making the right decisions.  Lois Wilco-Owens tells the Merc’s IA blog that she wants to get all touchy-feely if she gets elected.

One SJSU po-po might have some ‘esplaining to do as the local Quincy says the perp he was threatened by was shot in the back.

Mike Honda is going to win, so says the latest poll released by Democracy for America.  Ro must feel like Sam Liccardo, all that money can’t buy an election. SJ Inside has the scoop.

Didn’t read this story in the SV Biz Journal but we like his hair.

Fireworks in urine-stained downtown SJ may return if Dave Cortese has his way.

Daily Fetch 01.30.14: Menlo Park is looking for a new logo and Facebook knocked it out of the park

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Tech salaries in Silicon Valley shot up 7.2% and now average $108,603.  Not bad for our pocket protector loving, calculator watch wearing, Rubik’s Cube mastering tech nerd friends, L’Chaim!

Menlo Park is considering a redesign of its logo. We have a suggestion…

Menlo Park Logo Suggestion

Speaking of Facebook, the Menlo based company stuck its tongue and waved a finger, we are guessing the middle one, at authors of a recent study out of Princeton that predicted the demise of the social media giant in the not too distant future.  Yesterday, Facebook posted record earnings on the back of solid mobile ads and blew past analysts’ projections for revenue and growth.  The SV Biz Journal has the scoop.

Millbrae has a committee to make its downtown more interesting, meanwhile Belmont’s plans to add some life to it’s downtown is moving forward.

In “you’re going to hell news,” some guy arrested for smashing church windows in East Palo Alto says “it wasn’t me!”

Slain BART Sgt. Tom “Tommy” Smith Jr. was laid to rest yesterday at an emotional funeral attended by thousands in Castro Valley.  Smith, 42, was accidentally shot by a fellow officer on January 21 and was the first BART officer killed in the line of duty.  He will be missed.

Daily Fetch 01.30.14: Charter School lab rats, Laurie Smith beware, and Starbucks throws a Venti Frappuccino at San Jose’s Office of Economic Development

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

Education Week author Benjamin Herold, no relation to Scott “Tool Time” Herhold, dismantles Rocketship’s charter school experiment taking place in labs schools throughout San Jose.  This piece by Herold, Benjamin’s not Scott’s, should be read by any parent considering sending their kid to these experimental and ever changing “learning labs”.

Learning Lab

Declining test scores and student-to-teacher ratios of 50-1 are just part of what critics are trying to expose about some charter schools, others, like Stop Rocketship dot com, well, they want everyone to know about the corporate conflicts inherently intertwined in the surge for more charters.  A statewide initiative was submitted to Cali’s Hottie AG and the link below tells a story of (alleged) deception, greed, and conflicts that may get corrected if this initiative makes it to the ballot: “The Stop Corporate Exploitation of Charter Schools Act.”

The Merc’s new guy at city hall takes to the Internal Affairs blog to tell readers that Starbucks ain’t coming to the Convention Center or City Hall.  In fact, as Starbucks tells it they never heard back from the Economic Development staff at City Hall when they had questions they needed answered about locating in these spots…really?  Maybe the Economic Development staff should spend their time helping businesses locate in SJ and not pitching a sales tax measure to the Chamber of Commerce…thanks to our spies for the tip.

As for seeking an exemption around the living wage policy in SJ, Starbucks issued a statement that includes the line: “Starbucks never requested such an exemption with the City of San Jose.” But that did not stop a majority of the City Council voting to let someone, anyone, have a pass on paying its workers a living wage at city owned properties.  You can guess who the majority was, can’t you?

A 20-year old after-school counselor thought it was a good idea to sell weed to students at Willow Glen Middle School.   He was nabbed and now sits in a jail cell on $55,000 bail.

Maybe the fake letter writers trying to close pot clubs could have sent the 20-year old pot pusher above one of these letters.  NBC Bay Area tells us of the phony letters sent to pot clubs hoping their owners are so stoned that they actually pack all their bongs and close their doors.

Santa Clara County Sheriffs and Jail Guards have made it official, they have formed a Super-PAC to try and unseat incumbent Republican Sheriff Laurie Smith.  The “Santa Clara County Public Safety Workers
 Support Kevin Jensen for Sheriff 2014” will be the vehicle for the massive amounts of mud that must be slung to unseat the popular Sheriff Smith.  Looks like Smith’s political consultant Rich Robinson won’t be able to phone this one in and may have to actually do some political consulting to secure a win.

But at least one deputy won’t be participating in the Super-Pac as he is sitting behind bars today.  KTVU’s Robert Handa has the story.

A Twitter war, well, more like a skirmish or water balloon fight, broke out in the 17th Congressional District race between Honda and Khanna.  The Metro’s Fly tells us about a pretty lame back and forth between the opposing campaigns that indicates a slow news week for the publication.  Although the pic of Khanna in the post sure looks like he is ready to say, “Here is the church, here is the steeple…”

Slain BART Sgt. Tom “Tommy” Smith Jr. was laid to rest yesterday at an emotional funeral attended by thousands in Castro Valley.  Smith, 42, was accidentally shot by a fellow officer on January 21 and was the first BART officer killed in the line of duty.  He will be missed.

Daily Fetch 01.22.14: $Cashkari$ for Gov., SJ to spend another $525G’s for pension legal dream team and a perfect bracket will score $1B from Buffet

Wednesday, January 22nd, 2014

Some fat cat Republican named Neel Kashkari wants to be Governor of California.  Democrats were quick to pounce that Neel has skipped voting in a few elections and that he should change his name to Cash and Carry. The name change is in honor of the $700 billion in taxpayer’s money he doled out to Wall Street as the chief architect of the financial bailout, in addition to all of the bankers’ water he carried during the Great Recession.  Brown will crush him.

Cash_Carry_Sign

A 42-year old BART officer was slain yesterday—The 20 year veteran was accidently shot by a fellow officer while conducting a probation search.  KTVU has the sad news.

KPIX-5’s Ann Notarangelo brings us a story about Human Sex Trafficking in the Bay Area and the horror it brings to women’s lives.

Maybe this is why Congresswoman Zoe Lofgren and County Supervisor Cindy Chavez are teaming up with the County of Santa Clara Office of Women’s Policy the South Bay Coalition to End Human Trafficking, and the YWCA, to host a panel on Forced Labor Human Trafficking in Santa Clara County and the South Bay. The event is tomorrow and the details are in the Palo Alto Patch.

Another day in SJ and another violent incident as a man tries to disarm a SJ cop and then barricades himself in an apartment.  Hours later he is taken into custody.  The Merc has the story.

At least the crook from the post above has an apartment to return to versus these 4 families living off Blossom Hill who lost their homes to a raging fire captured on video from a cell phone.  NBC Bay Area has the pics.

Roll Call’s Emily Cahn rolls out the prediction that the new Republican entrant into the Honda-Khanna cage match will hurt Ro.  The electoral math may not add up for the congressional district hopper but the money math sure does, Khanna has over $2M in the bank versus Honda’s $622K.

$425,000 here, another $100,000 there.  Chump change when your trying screw your workers…right?  That giant sucking sound is the City of San Jose’s General Fund, you know, the one that pays for the po-po, firefighters, libraries, and senior services as it may get lighter to the tune of $525,000 to pay for the legal team that lost the key portions of Measure B.  The SJ Council will vote next week to sweeten an already sugar laden deal with its outside legal beagles.  So how many more millions will go down the drain trying to defend the doomed Measure B?  Thanks to our spies for dropping this our way.

And San Jose’s pension wars get more national attention in this Huffington Post article by Teague Paterson that warns municipalities to not compare San Jose or virtually any other city to Detroit and its fiscal train-wreck.

The charter school wars are not contained to Silicon Valley.  San Diego Unified just shot down a charter school application and many are concerned that soon there will be parallel school districts in SD.

Commercial real estate giant Cornish & Carey has been gobbled up by a New York firm, well, sort of, as Nate-Dog from the SV Biz Journal explains.  A change in ownership but not much else as it looks like business as usual for the commercial king.

ESPN says Warren Buffet will dole out $1B (yes that’s a B) to anyone that can pick a perfect bracket in the upcoming March Madness that year end college basketball has become.  The odds: 1 in 9 quintillion or about the same as Rose Herrera’s chances of becoming Mayor of San Jose.

The three “adult” SJSU alums recently charged with hate crimes may have hearings on the same day in March.

Daily Fetch 01.14.14: The Bromance Burns on, Will Khanna run for Miller’s seat, Merc Ed Board admits they got it wrong on SJ’s Measure B

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

KTVU reports that San Jose’s DT didn’t burn last night as the suspected arsonist took a night off and gave residents some peace after nearly a week of danger.

Nothing like a few homes going up in flames to strengthen a bromance.  Scott “I want to hold your hand” Herhold and “Rocketman” Liccardo strolled the neighborhoods plagued by an arsonist and warned residents to be vigilant and change their smoke detector batteries.  The Fetch wonders if Herhold asked Liccardo about all the votes Liccardo took to gut the fire service by closing stations, mothballing engines and trucks and laying off firefighters?

liccardo herhold bromance catches fire

Or what about Liccardo’s support for Dynamic Deployment, where some computer program was going to predict fires and emergency medical calls so you don’t really need fire stations or as many firefighters.  That worked out real well, right?

Congressman George Miller is calling it quits after a distinguished 40-year run representing his East Bay district.  Miller has always been a proud supporter of liberal causes and a champion of education.  His seat is a coveted prize for many who have been waiting for this very day to occur.

Have carpet will travel?  That was the immediate question many asked of shallow roots Ro Khanna when news of the Miller exit started to circulate.  The questions grew so loud as to whether Khanna would Ro his way upstream and move to another congressional district to run for Millers soon to be vacated seat that his campaign had to issue a denial.

The Merc Ed Board, in full apology tour mode, does its best backtracking to date as it admits the mistake that San Jose’s Measure B is when it comes to city workers being injured and disabled in the line of duty.  The daily wants a fix to the poorly written disability section of the new Measure but now that it is in the City Charter, it may be unfixable and more cops and city workers will leave while the City tries to figure it out.  Geniuses!

Rich Robinson takes to The Left Hook to castigate the Mayor and Council for putting the legally flawed Measure B on the ballot in the first place and points a finger, or two, at the law firm that produced a legal opinion paid for by the city that told them Measure B was a loser.  Robinson saves his harshest criticism for Sam Liccardo and Chuck Reed, both lawyers, who Robinson says should have known better.

The Measure B mess may be the reason why new City Manager Ed Shikada passed over one of its biggest cheerleaders, Alex Gurza for his number two.  Shikada picked Norberto Duenas over Gurza in what many are seeing as the first step in mending the broken relationship with city workers that many blame on Gurza.

In the latest edition of San Jose Weed Wars, pot club owners have submitted a ballot measure to the San Jose City Clerk to legalize their operations in the Valley of Hearts Delight.  The City Council has spent years bumbling around the issue for years and have not come up with a solution so the stoner advocates are going to the ballot.  The SV Biz Journal has the story.

2.15 million have signed up for health care coverage and Californians are still leading the way. The Merc’s Seipel spells out the numbers in her latest medical mash up.

As Americans are signing up for health care the number of flu related deaths in the Bay Area has increased to 15. Ummm, wash those hands, get the flu shot if you can find one, and stay the fu#@ home if you are coughing and sneezing.

The state pension fund, CalPERS, earned 16.2% last year.  The fund has more assets now then before the recession and is yet another bucket of cold water poured on the fledgling Reed initiative to eliminate worker’s retirement security.

Dunkin Donuts announced yesterday that it plans on opening 80 new stores in the Bay Area in the next 5-6 years. No word yet on where the stores will be located.

In San Jose’s DT District 3 race Raul po-po Peralez pushed out a press release announcing the endorsement of the San Jose Police Officers Association.  Since Raul is a 7-year veteran of the department, the news here would have been if he had not gotten the endorsement. Thank you to our spies for the tip.
The second BART union has ratified the contentious contract and now commuters will only have to wait a little over 3 years for the two sides to fight again and leave them stranded.

Daily Fetch 01.14.14: Good BART news for the peninsula, flu death toll hits 15 and mountain lions

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

Finally, there’s some BART news that has nothing to do with management/labor disputes. The Millbrae City Council has two proposals to develop over 13 acres of land near the Millbrae BART station. The proposals would add hundreds of new homes, commercial development and hotel space.

In other BART news, while parking fees at BART stations around the Bay are going up, fees at all peninsula stations will remain the same.

If you haven’t already gotten your flu shot, get ready to wait in long panicked lines at your doctor’s office. With San Mateo County reporting it’s second flu related death of the season, the Bay Area’s flu related death toll has climbed to 15.

A mountain lion was spotted at a park in Redwood City. It ran away when spotted. That is all.

Dunkin Donuts announced yesterday that it plans on opening 80 new stores in the Bay Area in the next 5-6 years. No word yet on where the stores will be located.

Daily Fetch 01.03.14: Phone app gives San Mateo residents the power, and is a bakery to blame for spare the air days?

Friday, January 3rd, 2014

San Carlos City Hall will be getting a $1.1 million facelift this year. Part of the improvements will include improving the building’s fire protection…probably a wise investment given the recent safety questions with PG&E’s nearby gas pipeline.

The popular “Off the Grid” food truck extravaganza may soon be coming to Menlo Park. Organizers have submitted a permit application, which will be reviewed by the city’s planning commission on January 13th.

The City of San Mateo has a new graffiti reporting smart phone APP. Now you can wage your own one-person war on graffiti…you have the power.

tumblr_m336glqeNC1r04pibo1_500

The BART Board has voted to accept a contact with its workers. We really hope this one has all of the typos fixed this time.

We’ve encountered a ton of “Spare the Air” of late. Well…according to a whistle-blower formerly employed by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District many of these may be due to a poorly placed sensor sitting on top of a Mexican bakery in Napa.

Daily Fetch 01.02.14: BART ticket fees and San Mateo County supervisors’ salaries on the rise

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

Happy New Year ladies and gents! Welcome back.

If you took BART into work this morning you may have noticed it was more expensive. The system hiked rates yesterday 5%.

Things are looking so rosy in San Mateo County even the politicians are now getting a raise. Pay for county supervisors rose 3% last year, 1.5% yesterday and could go even higher later in the year.

Some jackass decided to go for a joyride in an ambulance on Monday. (Apparently) when Daly City paramedics were in a house saving someone’s life,  some jerk stole their ambulance. Fortunately, the idiots didn’t take it far…it was found a half mile away.

Half Moon Bay is looking to contract out its Parks and Recreation services to the Boys and Girls Club.

Daily Fetch 12.20.13: Liccardo slings first mud of 2014 Mayoral race, Madison tries to hypnotize your mind, California times 6 and PG&E puts lump of coal in our stockings…

Friday, December 20th, 2013

Rocketman Liccardo slings the first mud of the Mayoral campaign…unfortunately for him it’s at himself.  Sam calls himself a liar for proposing something he has no intention of actually accomplishing.

In September, with much fanfare, Liccardo and Reed announced a plan to add 200 cops to the SJPD.  He even had a cute little petition urging himself to implement his plan.

Fast forward to this weeks disclosure by the Merc’s new guy at city hall that crime is soaring and it takes 20 minutes for the po-po to respond to attempted rapes and gang fights and Liccardo now says, “Every (mayoral) candidate will fall over themselves to tell voters how they will restore staffing in the Police Department, the truth is that none of us will.”

Shame on Sam for calling himself a liar and slinging the first mud in this race.

Sam Liccardo Liar-Liar

As for the self-proclaimed money front-runner Madison Nguyen, she told the Merc’s new guy that she wants to bring back the SJPD Burglary Investigation Unit.  Ummm…great idea, but this is the the same SJPD Burglary Investigation Unit Madison voted against bringing back a short time ago.

Here are the minutes from the council meeting:

Council Member Kalra moved approval to amend the motion as outlined in the memorandum he coauthored with Council Member Chu, dated June 8, 2012, to create a burglary investigation unit within the San José Police Department, with an additional clause that it be under the direction and timeline of the Police Chief. The motion was seconded by Council Member Chu.

On a call for the question, the motion failed. (5-6. Noes: Constant, Herrera, Liccardo, Nguyen, Oliverio; Reed.)

Madison Hypnotize

Soooo…voters beware of slick campaign mailers from Madison Nguyen with this image on them…Insiders tell Fetch that her campaign plan is to hypnotize voters into a deep sleep to try and get them to forget her voting record.

KTVU shows video of thieves running rampant ripping off packages on front porches this holiday season.  San Jose PD spokesflak Heather Randol says that many of these cases won’t even get assigned to an investigator.  Crime prevention tip, request signatures for anything you may be sending this season.

San Jose announced, sort of, a gang crackdown that has resulted in numerous arrests in the neighborhood south of SJSU.  We wonder if these gang arrests will have an asterisk next to them or not?

Tech investor Tim Draper wants California voters to play a massive game of Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon.  Techcrunch reports that Draper will be pushing a statewide initiative to break up California into 6 states.  And it looks like Draper used a sharpie while on a Po-Go Stick to carve up the state in the rendering at the end of the story.

The Willow Glen Neighborhood Association thinks Don Rocha may be running for Mayor and is trying to confirm what Don announced at his fundraising event held yesterday at Flames Restaurant in DTSJ.  Our spies tell us that he’s running for re-election to the City Council and that he has endorsed Dave Cortese for Mayor.

Don Rocha Mayor?

Did San Jose officials improperly divert airport revenue (what there is of it) to the city general fund?  That is what a Federal Aviation Administration audit alleged and NBC Bay Area has the follow up story as the City and the FAA have yet to resolve their differences.

The Sobrato’s step up.  SV Biz Journal scribe, Nathan Donato-Weinstein tells us about the $525,000 dollar gift to non-profits that provide emergency shelter to the growing homeless population in Silicon Valley.

BART wants to ban transit workers strikes.  An “advisory” ballot measure to take the temperature of the voting public is being pushed by veteran BART board member Joel Keller.  Hopefully BART will check the typos in any ballot measure so that it does not give out more money to its workers or actually strengthen the current law that allows strikes to occur…BART has issues with spell check.

PG&E wants to raise natural gas rates…Merry Christmas!
