Everyone should thank our wonderful police department. They're keeping our town from deteriorating like Pleasanton has the past few years.

Keep up the good work!

When I see a desperate Danville young man mixed-up with Pittsburg people stealing from cars, I think drugs, and drug money. When you buy illegal drugs not only are you purchasing illicit substances, but also alowing or bringing rift-raft into town, destroying the culture of our town. I understand that if you are doing drugs, you don't care, but I wanted to let you know that your drug buying and usage has more consequences than just a simple exchange of money for goods. The Ryan Fuch murder was drug related, the shooting early this year on El Pintado in Danville was also drug related. The Greenbrook house busted with guns, knives, brass knuckles was also drug related, growing pot plants in the house. Perhaps the Blackhawk fire was drug related, grow lights and pot plants in the attic? (never heard the conclusion for the cause of fire). Time to get tough on drugs in our community. The warning signs are readily apparent, and all around us.

Larry, Moe, Curly, and.... what the heck was the name of Shep's girlfriend again?
Enjoy the food at Santa Rita, and/or wherever they send the Pittsburg duo.

I agree with the comment about drugs - yet why do the police know about minors smoking and dealing marajuana at the skate park on Bollinger and do NOTHING about it??
