Well follow the money! Bush tried to assassinate him for the oil. He would give oil every year toRead More the people of Alaska's Bush who every year have to make a choice between eating or heating. The Gov does nothing. http://bit.ly/13FeZTO http://bit.ly/103xNar Its all about Money/Oil. And Fred before you call someone a PIG look in the mirror first you may be shocked. Medicine won't help you either when you get CANER!

Chavez was a murdering scumbag. He's roasting in flaming eternity. Hopefully, Venezuela canRead More recover from that pig.
Mike March 7, 2013 at 08:39 pm
So from what I understand from the 2 comments made here so far, Fred thinks the man was a murderousRead More scum bag, and wolfone believes Chavez was a good guy, everything connected with oil or failure is almost always George W Bush's fault, and Medicare is not going to help anyone when they get cancer. As for the article we have the owner of Pica Pica Maize Kitchen who is from Caracas mourning the death of his/her president. I find that statement most interesting, my immigrant grandparents after once stepping foot on US Soil NEVER referred to any president other that the President of the USA as being their president. I guess that is because they planned on staying here and wanted to be part of the USA not to just benefit from what the country has to offer. Who knows what that person is thinking or what they believe but, I find the statement "interesting" because I do not see or hear anything that is even similar from my good friends immigrant Asian wife, or my Marine nephew's South American immigrant wife who are now both naturalized citizens and they made that transition in less than 9 years.

It doesn't matter whose fault it is when a life is lost....feel bad for the victim's family; whetherRead More jaywalking or not, people have to slow down. I can't believe how people drive in South City streets as if they were highways, especially Spruce.
Jim C October 31, 2012 at 09:39 pm
How about people need to slow down AND people need to stop jaywalking? Condolences to all involved.
wolfone October 31, 2012 at 10:12 pm
Exactly! These people speed down the Mission RD like its a FREEWAY and don't stop in STATE markedRead More crosswalks! You know who does stop? The truck drivers! The only ones that obey laws! We should make driving laws as strict as for driving a truck maybe people will obey the laws. And where are the PD? Get out of the donut shops and monitor the speed of these people! They will sneak around at 1:30 am and put a citation on your car for expired reg but not make the streets safe for all! Peds & Bikes go on the roads/Streets too! These drivers don't care they speed EVERY day I'm sick of it. RIP the poor Senior who was killed...Senior someones, Mom or Grandma, Father or Grandfather won't be at the Thanksgiving table. :( From the DMV Handbook: STOP AT ALL CROSSWALKS WHERE PEDESTRIANS ARE WAITING! DO NOT STOP IN THE MIDDLE OF A CROSSWALK.! Do not Turn RIGHT without LOOKING FIRST! I don't see any drivers doing any of the above! Except Commercial drivers! Shame on all you drivers and Shame on the police busy giving parking tickets instead of monitoring crosswalks! Yes I'm mad almost everyday I'm almost run over in a State marked crosswalk by some idiot in a hurry! Oh and more violators...BART police and Colma police and SSF police! If the police won't obey, why will the other drivers?

I recently found out about Don`s passing. Don was one of my childhood to high school friends. I willRead More always remember Don`s great sense of humor and his care for all living things. He is a lifer friend from Midland. To his family I send my deepest condolences. Godspeed Don!

With Dr. Griffin you knew your beloved family member was in the best possible hands when he or sheRead More was in the doctor's care. You just knew you could trust him, you knew he was honest, and you knew he wasn't doing it just for the money. Dr. Griffin was truly empathic. A rare quality for any human being and especially for a doctor. He knew how much you loved your boy or girl and was right there with you. His practice never turned into one of those assembly line practices that seem to be everywhere else. When my girl became very sick there were distinct possibilities that I would have to see him with no prior notice; he just told me, "don't worry about it, if you have to bring her in just come on in, don't bother calling, just bring her in and I'll see her no problem". My girl passed away several years ago and I haven't seen the doc in quite a while. I just found out today that he passed away and I guess deep down inside I just thought he was going to be around forever. We truly lost a great one. Bye doc. We love you.

I just learned of Don's death when I tried to track him down. I was in the Army Veterinary CorpsRead More with Don 34 years ago at the Letterman Army Medical Center. Don was unforgettable - quick mind, quick athlete, and one of the funniest people I ever knew. We played basketball together at lunchtime, and he always made fun of my jump shot. I can still see his odd, rolling gait, and hear his non-stop trash talk on the court. I met Sylvia a few times, and they seemed like a great couple. I'm sorry that I did not try sooner to track down Don. I've often thought of him over the years, and it's hard to grasp that a spirit as energetic as Don's could be stilled so suddenly. It's a great sadness.

Somehow I missed the news about Dr. Griffin and just found out 2 hours after the memorial. He wasRead More the vet for my dogs for 20yrs..after I got out of the biz. He was the only Vet I trusted. I'm still in a state of shock over his passing. I'm hoping maybe we can get something together at Orange park park for him and maybe get a Memorial at the dog park there in his honor. I don't know who can fill his shoes. No one. Laura & Marshmellow and Rainbow bridge dogs Shadow & Sandy♥ You will always be remembered and loved Doc♥
Stacey October 20, 2012 at 11:35 am
The memorial sounds like a great idea. How would you go about making that happen? I also just foundRead More out about the memorial 45 minutes before it was over. I feel similiarly about Doc, he was the vet I trusted most. This is a huge lost for our community.

Our heart goes out to the Griffin family. Don has been a good friend growing up up in Midland. HeRead More was a fine classmate and great member of our Chemic football team and was always fun to be around. ----- Jack Hedelund & John Jackson

Godspeed Gentlemen..Rest In Peace.
Tracey Harris October 31, 2013 at 11:52 pm
I remember this story; it made me so sad. The One that created us never intended for these belovedRead More men or any of us to pass away tragically or unexpectedly (Ecclesiastes 9:11). Rather, His original purpose for mankind is to live forever, and to never even grow old and die. (Romans 6:23) He guarantees that he will bring our loved ones back from death, and we can be on hand to see them again if we learn about Him and His purposes, and act on what we learn. (John 17:3)

I would agree that Walt was the model for city managers; long range planning while running the cityRead More on a daily basis, all without fanfare or a need for recognition. As a member of two different commissions during his tenure, he was accessible and informative. May he rest in peace.

Rest in peace Derrick.

Rest in peace Derrick...You will always be missed.

Derrick will never be forgotten by the One who made him. He longs to restore him to life andRead More reunite him with loved ones. (Job 14:15)

Jane would have been very surprised at the outpouring of love and the numbers in attendance at theRead More Mass; I was not, but then again, I knew how much people loved and respected her.
Cecille Mortel May 18, 2012 at 02:21 am
My thoughts and prayers to Jane's family and loved ones. She was one of reasons why I felt safe atRead More El Camino High School. She will always be remembered.
Veronica Chan May 18, 2012 at 03:22 am
Over 10 years ago, Jane was so upset at me the one time I cut school and got caught. She set meRead More straight and let me know why I couldn't continue doing the bad things I'd been doing. Thank God for the way she cared for all the students and staff at El Camino. You're surely loved and missed, Jane, rest in peace with the angels.

does anyone know where to send sympathy cards to?

Koti, you were a wonderful person, and a great deputy. I know your peers will be missing you veryRead More much. God is with you always.

It was 1969 and I was with the band Mercy. Dick Clark had me on the phone as his audience onRead More American Bandstand was rating our song "Love Can Make You Happy". Dick Clark tells me, "the kids love your song!" The rest was history. Mercy went on to make the Top 10 second only to The Beatles' "Get Back."
