Engineers will still have the discretion to use their train horns, especially if they see pedestrians in the crossing. The system is expected to reduce the amount of noise, its level and how far and long it resonates, especially at night. Brett Rekola, NCTD’s chief of rail operations, said the estimate will likely be further refined, noting that

Five United States Marines recently awarded Purple Hearts were also honored at the event with a special award recognizing their sacrifice. Marines have been included in the Chamber’s annual awards event since 2004, Gibbs said. “These men deserve to be recognized for what they have sacrificed and we think this dinner is a great opportunity to do so,” Chamber of Commerce President Ted Owens said. The event was sponsored by Grand Pacific Resorts, Inc., Legoland California, academic experience, advocating that music be available to others engages them in the world as well as the classroom.” Banding Together believes a community of people sharing a passion for music can, in fact, “band together” to assist in making music therapy possible for

some costs are flexible. He said the administrative costs were eliminated after reminders from Hilliard and Filanc that the system would be a first for the county. Other costs, such as materials and labor are fixed. For example, he said it will cost about $75,000 to tear up and repair streets and sidewalks to install underground equipment. Rekola said the price could be reduced if the city is willing to absorb the costs for services such as permits and traffic control.

do think you can do most anything, because, well … you already have. And this, my younger friends, makes me realize that there is extreme pleasure in knowing that I and my generation no longer have to come up with all the answers and solutions. I have tossed that ball right over to those impressive young bucks coming up and, by jiminy, my expectations are high. Remember, short stuff. My generation went to the moon.Oh,yeah.And we did it with nothing more than a calculator.That’s right. Let this all be a lesson to you. If you overachieve and peak early, no one will say, “Oh, that’s lovely. You can quit now.”Oh,no,no,no … we are standing here tapping our foot impatiently, waiting for you to find a way to make even more happen, and without a hitch. I’m talking 4G, a working GPS and Mars, OK? Don’t let me down now, y’hear? Jean Gillette is a freelance writer and editor. Contact her at jgillette@coastnewsgroup.com.

For now, the citizens committee is trying to raise the $363,317. If their efforts fall short, all money will be returned, Hershell Price, the committee chairman, said. “No money will be at risk,” he said. Rekola said NCTD typically requires a 100 percent deposit but he expects the organization will “talk with the city to move the process along.” Visit the city website at delmar.ca.us to view the slide show and cost estimate presented at the open house.

But forensic computer analyst Mark Luque testified that time-zone stamped chats were physically found on Douglas’ computer, that matched up with chats from an undercover agent who was performing a child porn investigation and pretending to be a 13-year-old girl. Luque said that a 64page Internet history report showed many searches relating to pedophilia in the file path of Douglas’ computer, and that it showed that he also belonged to between 35 and 50 interest groups on the topic. There were also images contained in a “my documents” folder on his computer, Luque said. He said that certain software had been installed on the computer for file sharing and the downloaded files were explicitly set to be sent to “my downloads.” “The focus on the application was for file sharing — how can I get that data to me?” Luque said. The nearly two-week trial closed on March 8, and the jury is in the deliberating stages. If convicted, Douglas faces up to four years in prison, according to Watanabe.
