LAKE ELSINORE RESIDENT April 18, 2014 at 12:03 AM
The rumor mill has been working overtime. They are saying those trees were over 100 years old andRead Moret hey were a refuge for endangered migrating birds. Isn't that a federal crime? There is also a wetland in that area which endangered species were living before the trees were cut and the land was bulldozed. Those endangered species are probably dead now. Once again in my humble opinion what the heck is going on, and why haven't they received a big fat fine? Does anyone know if the creek running through all this goes into the lake???
William Horn April 18, 2014 at 02:51 AM
LER - It's the overflow channel FROM the lake to the Prado flood basin.
LAKE ELSINORE RESIDENT April 18, 2014 at 08:34 AM
William thank you for the information.

Good Morning Renee, would you please see who is continuing to delete Martha's post along withRead Moreothers ?
Joseph Morabito April 17, 2014 at 10:11 AM
Yes Renee, it would be good to get this cleared up. Then again, on this thread, if anyone wasRead Moreactual ly reading it... we know that Martha initially posted something with a typo. She had said, "...are themselves breading the law..." Since it has since been corrected... my guess is that she "deleted" her own comment as she was correcting it. Perhaps she can assuage the fears of her friend from the north.

Renee Schiavone (Editor) April 17, 2014 at 01:00 PM
I just deleted all personal comments.
Renee Schiavone (Editor) April 17, 2014 at 01:01 PM

Thanks Renee what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
Andy the Analyst April 17, 2014 at 04:33 AM
It is not right that persons can just delete other persons decent comments. However I think it isRead Moreri ght for anyone to flag obscene cursing and filthy language and threats of death or violence.that . ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Because of the recent abuse the flagging should continue but not automatically make the flagged comments be deleted. The flagged comments would then be reviewed by the human editor for conformance to Patch policy.
Andy the Analyst April 17, 2014 at 04:37 AM
I have posted many comments to some other newspapers and never seen anything approaching the hatred Read Moreand animosity or threatening that has been in these comment columns the past year. continuing and maybe increasing the past month or so.
ChrisG April 17, 2014 at 09:11 AM
The auto delete is a flaw. If this isn't happening in other areas as Renee suggests it is becauseRead Moret hey haven't figured out that 3 flags will delete the comment. Pick a number, 10 flags before an editor or moderator gets the message to review a comment. Put a like and dislike button for each comment. Let people see how positive or negative their neighbors feel the comment is.
turnitaround April 15, 2014 at 11:56 AM

I call code enforcement weekly, and i'm nosy as hell about my neighbors. when I see punk kids or thugs I find out where they live and what they drive. I hurl rocks at anyone with modified exhausts and will shoot a stray pitbull within seconds. Why is Murrieta so much better than LE? Because we have people that care about the place. People like me.

the BLM backed off. They were worried about creating a few more Tm McVeighs....
trueconservative April 17, 2014 at 03:01 PM
I am sure the BLM backed off because they were ordered to. The Federal Authorities hired someoneRead Morefro m Utah to round up the cattle and hired someone else to sell the cattle at a cost of $966,000.00 of taxpayers money; to wrangle these cattle and take them to Utah. Then Utah's Governor refused to let the stolen cattle into Utah. So not only was taxpayers money wasted but BLM also destroyed private property and shot corralled bulls, a very cowardly act. Why doesn't PETA and the rest of the save the land groups stand up and fight for a ranch owners land for him? BLM probably damaged more habitat for the tortoises than a few e cattle could do. The Federal Government is heading down the wrong path. The POTUS says he wants entrepreneurs to start up businesses, but for his policies we have lost manufacturing and other business, but then instead of contacting this man and trying to work something out he sicks the Fed's and BLM on him. Our politicians do not want to work with anyone they just want to crush the human spirit.

It has nothing to do with how the banks compute interest. It is a California Civil Code LawRead More2954.8. It is only paid on impound accounts and from what information I get is that most people do not have their property taxes and insurance premiums impounded with their payments, I do.
Cousin Clem April 13, 2014 at 04:42 AM
There was and probably still is the law that places that pay interest do not have to report it toRead Moreth e IRS on form 1099-Int if the amount of interest is under $10.00 If your new loan started near the end of 2012 that could explain no statement for 2012, but the place told you they do not pay any interest on impound accounts, so that is also a reason for no statement for the whole year 2013.
trueconservative April 17, 2014 at 09:25 PM
There are 13 or 14 states that require that mortgage loans with impound accounts pay interest. Read MoreThe law in California Civil Code 2954.8 requires the mortgage company, bank, etc. has to pay 2% interest, they don't get a choice in California that they can pay it if they want or not..

One cannot be moral and a politician at the same time. It's not possible.

Robbie. So what is the alternative not to vote at all because they are all morally corrupt? YouRead Moreca n bet the big money will be behind the winners of the game if no one votes. I don't want our reporters to not report the bad things they politicians do. As taxpayers I think we should be informed. I agree both sides have their power politicians that think that once they are in office they can quit behaving because no one ever has to pay for the negative they do. Just don't know where the voters go from here.
Rob Turmer March 31, 2014 at 09:44 PM

@ ChrisG YES, IT LOOKS LIKE THREE FLAGS AND IT IS OUT. But each flag must come from a differentRead Morepe rson or user name. I asked Clem to help and confirm that is what is happening. I used to think that there was a human editor that reviewed all the flagged comments and deleted the ones she agreed were inappropriate. But that is not the way it works. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I noticed over the past two or three months some persons that post appropriate comments have though Renee was deleting them. ~~~~ Now it is obvious that someone else that disagreed or did not like some other postings by that person was deleting them wrongfully.

Nancy had the use of the air force jet while she was speaker of the house, third in line for theRead Morepre sidency. She did not want to go on a small plane. Also she carried other members of the California Representatives as long as she was going anyway, Otherwise I think, without checking, that all hose memberws are eligible for reimbursement of commercial travel from DC to their districts. This issue is several years old. The actual subject was in regular news back in 2010, and gets revived somewhere as if new every few months.
Mindful Macey March 25, 2014 at 11:12 AM
How does that work James when you're not on your property and they are not on your property? TheRead Morerea l tragedy, no funding for police officers and citizens knowing that calling is a waste of time and criminals who also know that the police won't come and getting away is more the norm than not. Instead, Kilroy is requesting $25,000 tonight at the City Council meeting for a boat dock so that LE can take a state grant of $33,000+ for water safety. Talk about a waste of money from state and city. More cops hello. No one wants to get in the lake because the city is so crapped out with tweekers and anything goes.
James P Hosty March 25, 2014 at 01:00 PM
you can follow them and find out where thy park those nice cars. Invariably its in a driveway orRead Moreout in the street in front of their cheap apartments.

The cops are overwhelmed, too many cuts. It will take post like this and citizens taking itRead Moreseriousl y, neighbors looking out for one another to hopefully run this out. We also need a city that doesn't want to put a $25,000 dock in on a lake that is so green no one wants to be in it. Focus on the crime first, then worry about bringing fun activities here. This is why we need to pay attention to who is in office and what they are doing.
