The information posted about that night is inaccurate, and I'm not sure if its deliberate or not.Read More Anybody can look up a 1982 calendar online and see September 4th 1982 was a Saturday night. It was Labor Day weekend just before the school year started. Now, I can't say for sure whether there was a Golfland in 1982, but where Golfland is today at Wolfe and ECR (El Camino Real) did not exist. It was the Woolworth Garden Center at that time. The report I read in the paper stated a driver delivering to Woolworth Garden Center found her. Not a year goes by that I don't think about Karen, especially in September. I remember the night I heard the news. I had just gotten home from camping at Pinnacles with my mom, step-dad, sister, and her friend who lived next door to us. When we got home, my next door neighbor called me and asked what Karen's last name was. When I told her Karen's name, she told me she had been murdered. She then brought over the newspaper for me to read the story. Karen and I dated that previous school year. Her murder was part of my desire to become a police officer. While I realize the colder the trail goes, the harder it is to find witnesses and evidence...I will never lose hope that her killer(s) will be brought to justice. And if I'm able to, I will be in that courtroom to see the face of the animal(s) that took such a wonderful life away from her family and friends. She will always have a place in my heart.

Despite the obvious nightmare of mass immigration, "our" cowardly politicians andRead More "our" treasonous media keep trying to shove mass amnesty for illegal aliens down our throats. ----- They think calling it "immigration reform" is supposed to fool us. ----- They know very well most Americans are FED UP with the alien invasion, but they (politicians) take their orders from cynical billionaires like Zuckerberg, Bloomberg, Adelson, Gelbaum, Soros, etc. etc.

Leaving all accusations of guilt aside, I see this ruling as an erosion of the legal definition of aRead More minor. In essence now, a high school kid or maybe even a middle school kid could be tried like an adult under this ruling. I do not think the courts have thought this through. And just for the sake of argument, where does the real responsibility lie? The drinker? The server (who maybe not be experienced enough to judge someones intoxication level) or the manufacturers and advertisers who promote drinking to the teen/college demographic? If minors are going to be treated as adults in the courts then they should be given the full rights of an adult!

oh yes ,but the under folks ,kids or what ever knows that you are not to drink booze til you are atRead More the age of 21. but i guess the kid could drink and driv e and kill some one and he or she can get away with it . that is wrong . if you are under age and you know it so what grow up and pay the price . the ones that charge you a fee or ask for a donation is still charging you a fee they should go to jail if you hurt or kill some one . time for the under age to grow up or send you to a nut hospital til you understand what you did is wrong and now you grow up fast if you wantout of the nut hospital you got to tell the courts why you were so dumb .

"....where have you been the last two days...." Uh, following the story, Ken. Yeah, iRead More heard all that, that you're talking about. What i HAVEN'T heard or seen is that "the report of kidnap came from them" that, supposedly, was "on the news today and all day". I asked a question of "reference" around 4 hours ago, and as yet haven't received an answer. From either April or anyone else who saw/read that "the report of kidnap came from them".

Good news. Another jack ass out of our streets and some less drugs being out there. Awesome! Can'tRead More wait to see more arrests like this in 2014. Can't wait to see the day Santa Cruz be a drug- free city where we can feel safe without worrying who is going to deliberately stab or shot us just because being under the influence of drugs. Get out of here weirdos... we don't want you here. Let us be in peace with the pace of the ocean.
