The unidentified man is a member of the Board of Directors of a local surfing club. Not much is known about the man, except he has a propensity to call others "IDOTS" when he is upset with them. He allegedly pointed a gun at his wife, who escaped and called police, authorities said. A SWAT team surrounded the couple's house, and officers were able to talk the man out Tuesday morning after an all-night standoff.
He was charged Tuesday with second-degree reckless endangerment, and could be sentenced to up to 10 years in prison if convicted. The man's wife told police her husband came home around 6:30 p.m. Monday after drinking at the Rib Trader, but that she didn't know if he was drunk, a sheriff's detective wrote in a criminal complaint.
She said her husband drank a bottle of beer during dinner and they settled down to watch "Dancing with the Stars." When Palin, the daughter of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, began her routine, the man jumped up and began swearing, saying something like "The (expletive) IDOTS politics." His wife said he was upset that a political figure's daughter was dancing on TV even though he felt she didn't have talent. She told officers her husband left the living room and reappeared 20 minutes later with his Luger, "raging" with his face bright red, and blasted the TV.
"He scared the bejebees out of me," she told police. She left the home and called police from a nearby lawyer's office, according to the complaint. The Internet has been abuzz in recent days about how Bristol Palin, who has consistently landed at the bottom of the judges' leaderboard, has been able to remain on the ABC show. Some have suggested that voters -- particularly supporters of her mother -- have been voting in blocs.

The mystery of a missile launch last night off the Southern California coast deepened today as U.S. military officials continued to deny that the missile was one of theirs. The unmistakable contrail streaking into the California sunset was captured on video last night by a KCBS news helicopter flying over Los Angeles at around 5 p.m. CNN

sand bar is back, outer reef is uncovered, the dirt road will not be paved, life is good. The telephone poles acting as barricades could be removed allowing motor homes to be backed up to the water, and Tony's Market has agreed not to send his catering truck filled with munchies. Maybe, just maybe
camping will be allowed. Bldg. 1 thru 6 will have pocelean bowls for your comfort including germ free seat covers.

Before long there will be 400 surfboards in the water at the same time. It is anticipated 25 riders will occupy one wave. The Rangers are at San Onofre Surf Beach to prevent alcohol consumption and ticket parking violators. It is the responsibility of San Onofre club members to clean open latrines
1 thru 6 five times daily. Boogie boards and canvas inflatable surf mats are encouraged at Old Man's while beach is open. Thank you for your cooperation.

Bill Barnars, Hi Ho Silvers, Art Lavagnino, and a host of others. Now she's diminished to cherry-pit spitting contests, horse-shoes, bocci ball tournaments, anything divorcing itself from the sport itself. I wish I'd anticipated this when I spent hard earned money to join. It's too late now. There's no use crying over spilled milk.

Labor Day: How it Came About; What it Means
Labor Day, the first Monday in September, is a creation of the labor movement and is dedicated to the social and economic achievements of American workers. It constitutes a yearly national tribute to the contributions workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of our country.
Founder of Labor Day
More than 100 years after the first Labor Day observance, there is still some doubt as to who first proposed the holiday for workers.
Some records show that Peter J. McGuire, general secretary of the Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners and a cofounder of the American Federation of Labor, was first in suggesting a day to honor those "who from rude nature have delved and carved all the grandeur we behold."
But Peter McGuire's place in Labor Day history has not gone unchallenged. Many believe that Matthew Maguire, a machinist, not Peter McGuire, founded the holiday. Recent research seems to support the contention that Matthew Maguire, later the secretary of Local 344 of the International Association of Machinists in Paterson, N.J., proposed the holiday in 1882 while serving as secretary of the Central Labor Union in New York. What is clear is that the Central Labor Union adopted a Labor Day proposal and appointed a committee to plan a demonstration and picnic.

West Nile Virus is NOT going to magically pass over San Onofre. If you're planning on surfing, or being at, San Onofre near dawn or dust, your risk is much higher than at midday.
There is no time of day or night that is guaranteed to be safe. You should apply insect repellent containing DEET, Picaridin or oil of lemon eucalyptus AT ALL TIMES while at, or near, San Onofre. Apply it to all skin not covered by clothing. It can also be sprayed onto clothing for extra protection. Long sleeves and pants are strongly recommended. You are not in any way "safe" from mosquitoes when you are out in the water. The Great White Sharks at San Onofre don't scare away mosquitoes.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, people infected with WNV can develop a severe illness. Symptoms include: high fever, headache, neck stiffness, stupor, disorientation, tremors, convulsions, muscle weakness, vision loss, numbness and paralysis. Some people infected develop milder symptoms such as fever, headache and body aches, nausea, vomiting and sometimes swollen lymph glands or skin rash. Some will not have symptoms. West Nile Virus can be a life-altering and even fatal disease.
It is best to dump out water that has been sitting around in items such as buckets, tires, plant saucers, bird baths, pet water bowls and children’s pools. Mosquitoes only need a half inch of standing water to lay eggs. The eggs can hatch in as soon as two days!
Camp Pendleton officials are "taking measures to protect base occupants from WNV" by treating only large bodies of standing water, and they will do so on a 28-day cycle through October. If you take much comfort in this, you are not paying attention. Standing water by showers, bathrooms, drinking fountains, drainage pipes, ditches, etc., will not be treated. Mosquito eggs hatch in only two days, so that leaves about 26 days of virtually no protection, even around large bodies of water on the base.
I'm cautious not to tempt fate by saying "It can't get any worse a San Onofre," but you've got to wonder. And don't think you can hide from the mosquitoes. Most of then will be too small to see, only a few million will be as big as the San Onofre Mosquito (pictured).

- "The 9-mile channel of San Onofre is the migration route for the big whites that go to Hawaii and Guadalupe Island from the Farallon Islands."
- "Keep your feet up."

If you have a fear, there will always be someone willing to take your money and promise to save you. These guys near Barstow, California, promise to save you and serve you a diet including Sloppy Joes. You don't want to try to survive the Apocalypse on a diet of cream cheese in rolled tortillas, do you?

I sense that the tide is turning in terms of national reaction to Arizona's new immigration law.
When the law was passed, opponents reacted swiftly and fiercely and spun it as a civil-rights issue.
Opponents charged that Arizona was relegating Latinos to second-class status. The law was racist and xenophobic. Allusions to police states, the segregated South and even Nazi Germany abounded.
It's become clear, however, that most Americans see this principally as a law-enforcement issue. A steady stream of national polls consistently show the same thing: A solid majority of Americans (usually around 60 percent) believe that local law enforcement should be doing the kind of things the Arizona law provides. Moreover, a solid majority of Americans also believe that Arizona was right to take action on its own, rather than wait for the federal government.
That changes the game. It's easy for critics to depict a small state as a bunch of racist rubes. Harder to do that for the entire country.
• Attorney General Eric Holder's admission, in a House committee hearing, that he hasn't read the Arizona law is also likely to be a turning point.
Holder has denounced the Arizona law. He has said that the federal government would be closely watching its implementation and will consider suing to keep it from going into effect. All without actually reading the bill.
Holder's admission was both breathtaking and unsurprising.
Opponents of the bill routinely and grossly mischaracterize its provisions. Even national news accounts are far more often inaccurate than accurate in describing them.
I suspect that among those denouncing the law and Arizona, Holder is more the rule than the exception.
• Meanwhile, immigration-rights groups, whose top priority is legal status for those currently in the country illegally, are touting their own polls to encourage Democrats to get bold on immigration.
According to them, comprehensive immigration reform, including legalization, is an electoral winner. In fact, they claim that even legalization standing alone, not buried as part of ostensibly tough border and workplace enforcement, is a winner.
It's clear that Democratic politicians actually running for office don't believe this. Almost universally, their strategy is to allow as little daylight as possible between them and their Republican opponents on immigration.
Arizona's Democratic candidates are a good example. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, running for re-election in southern Arizona, is stressing her call to deploy the National Guard to the border. Ann Kirkpatrick, defending her seat in northern Arizona, has introduced a bill providing for an additional 3,500 border guards and denounced the calls to boycott Arizona because of the new state immigration law.
Harry Mitchell, running for re-election in the East Valley, will tell you he supports comprehensive immigration reform - if you ask. But what he voluntarily tells voters is all the enforcement stuff he favors. Jon Hulburd, the impressive Democratic candidate for John Shadegg's open seat, has a tough-as-nails statement on immigration on his website that doesn't even use the word "comprehensive" or refer to legalization at all. In fact, it flatly embraces the new John McCain position: "No discussion of immigration reform is possible without first addressing real border security."
Presumptive Democratic gubernatorial nominee Terry Goddard is stressing his support for making illegal border crossings a federal felony.
This is all because Democratic politicians understand an electoral dynamic that the immigration-rights groups don't: What a majority thinks isn't as consequential as what a majority of those who care about the issue thinks. In American politics, intensity matters.
• Most of what is being discussed in the U.S. Senate won't really do much to protect taxpayers against future bailouts. An exception is an amendment offered last week by McCain.
It would have reinstated the $400 billion cap on taxpayer subsidies to Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, eliminated their federal conservatorship in two years, and required them to be stand-alone entities without any implicit federal support within five years.
The taxpayers are already into Fannie and Freddie for $145 billion with no end in sight. The Obama administration lifted the $400 billion cap, clearly indicating an expectation to blow by it.
The amendment was defeated 56-43, with only two Democrats, Evan Bayh and Russ Feingold, voting for it.
I sometimes wonder how much different 2008 might have been if McCain had stuck with his anti-bailout instincts rather than succumbing to the apocalyptic warnings of Bush Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson and Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke.

Keep trestles clear of any kind of development including developed footpaths and tunnels and toilets and rangers and ranger buildings and lifegaurds and lifegaurd traffic, cars sirens, expensive salAried park employees and regulation of any sort. why are californians sitting by and watching their own infrastructure grow to the point of not being able to sustain it? why are californians letting the park system get so top heavy that it is closing the parks? why are we doing this type of construction right in the middle of the holy grail of surfing, and one of the nicest examples of a natural setting left on our coastline? lets fight this the way we fought the toll road. The "San Onofre Foundation" is trying to negotiate it's own long term vision , and quite frankly is a compromise too great for our immediate releif, and cost too much for future generations. TODAY; A FOOTPATH TOMORROW; PAVEMNT, PARKING METERS AND OVERCROWDING! contact the SANO ONOFRE FOUNDATION TO VOICE YOURSELF, MAYBE THEY WILL LISTEN??????????? www.sanofoundation.org/

Mexican whiteflies suffer from an identity crisis, as they are not “true” flies at all. Their appearance resembles tiny, pure white “moths” but they are in fact, closely related to sap-sucking aphids. Aphid-cast skins can easily be mistaken for whitefly, but whitefly will quickly flutter up and fly away when disturbed.

It’s amazing how many times I have driven the road to San O and never once gave it a thought as to what Basilone road was named after. I did a little research and found out the following: Basilone Road is named after a Gunnery Sergeant John Basilone, (November 4, 1916 – February 19, 1945). He was a United States Marine who received the Medal of Honor for his actions at the Battle of Guadalcanal during World War II. He was the only enlisted Marine in World War II to receive the Medal of Honor and the Navy Cross. His story will be told during the new TV series called The Pacific.A section of U.S. Interstate 5 running through Camp Pendleton is named the "Gunnery Sergeant John Basilone Memorial Highway".About the TV series:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Pacific_(miniseries)About Gunnery Sergeant John Basilonehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Basilone

The plot unraveled over the weekend when a student tipped off police, Camber reported.
School officials said they never imagined that some of the 8- and 9-year-olds boys and girls at the school would think of bringing physical harm to a teacher, KSBR reported.
"A plan had been developed amongst several of our third-grade students to allegedly do harm to their teacher," said Theresa Martin, of Orange County Schools District. "It's shocking that they would think of this at their young age. I think that is probably the most shocking part for all of us," Martin said.
In addition to the knife being found, the school officials said other students had duct tape, handcuffs, ribbon and a heavy crystal paperweight relatives said each child at Malcom Elementary School in Laguna Niguel, had a job to do, including one assigned to wipe up the blood.

School officials said they never imagined that some of the 8- and 9-year-olds boys and girls at the school would think of bringing physical harm to a teacher, until the teacher deserved it after correcting them one too many times by pointing out their "run on" sentences and correcting their grammer and punctiuation. a Teacher said...
"These" is present tense."Those" is past tense."Were" is also past tense.As the photo appears to be dated, we must assume that you mean "Those were the days" and not "These are the days" or "These were the days".It is also customary to capitalize the first letter of a sentence." apparently, said one youth "the teacher deserves to die".

One of the largest sewage spills along the Southern California coastline in years has forced the closure of three miles of popular beaches and surf breaks in south Orange County.An underground sewage main in Rancho Santa Margarita ruptured Tuesday afternoon, sending an estimated 500,000 gallons of raw sewage gushing into a creek that empties into the ocean at Doheny State Beach in Dana Point, officials said Thursday.Beaches from the breakwater at Dana Point Harbor to Capistrano Bay Community Beach could remain closed through the weekend, or until water quality test- ing meets state standards for two straight days, Orange County health
