Tuition Fee Rollback - by Julianne Hunsdorfer
The passing of Proposition 30 is supposed to provide more money for education in California. Tuition fee rollbacks in the CSU system meant that students should have gotten money back for the tuition fees they paid for their Fall term. Those students who receive assistance through Cal Grants, however, did not receive any of the refund, even if they paid a portion of their tuition fees out of pocket.

Organic Doesn't Mean Radiation Free - by Tomas DiFiore
Organic in it's strictest sense only means that there haven't been any 'banned' inputs to a selected environment in the 3 years prior to certification. “There are no specific requirements or guidance on seaweeds in the FDA standards. Each certifying agency has drawn up specifications that must be met to receive their certification.” And no one is testing the seawater per aqua-crop relevant to any 'Organic Certification' standards.

Appropriate Incentives For Parks - by Tomas DiFiore
Private Concession Operated Parks pay a penny on the dollar for ALL CARD FEES, the campsite reservation, purchases in onsite stores, food, fuel, bait, anything that is sold and a credit card is used - but particularly the campsite fees. And the State of California can’t figure out how to take the tickets and collect the fees. (Reservation and cancellation fees would supply millions of dollars annually to fund local non-profits working to keep parks open).

Reporter Arrested for Recording Public Meeting - by David Gurney
In my own case, there were NO requirements for press credentials, and the public policy meeting was NOT being recorded. The corrupt private contractors claimed the authority to break the law, and establish their own rules recarding coverage of their public meetings. They later changed their illegal "rules," after universal public outrage over the arrest.

Hidden Behind Concrete and Barbed Wire: Hearings Expose Torture in California's SHUs - by Revolution Newspaper
On August 23, in Sacramento, attorneys, psychologists, religious leaders, and most of all former prisoners and their family members and loved ones testified on the savage treatment in California's Security Housing Units (SHUs). Their testimony revealed a prison system that can only be described as torture, a nightmarish system in which a prisoner can be thrown in solitary confinement for decades based on anonymous informants and rumors, a system which would be cruel and unjust if it were appl...

How can the corrupt MLPA fiasco be open and transparent? - by Dan Bacher
Rather than being an "open and transparent" process as former Assemblywoman Virginia-Strom Martin claims, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger's fast-track MLPA Initiative is a corrupt fiasco that represents the biggest threat to tribal gathering and fishing rights in the last 30 years.
