  1. You have this story wrong. The pedestrian did not die, he caused the accident that caused a motorcyclist to die. The pedestrian described is wanted since he walked away before the sheriff’s department arrived. Please check your sources you are way off! It is a shame to the real victim.

  2. Jim, re the GGUSD Trustees meeting. Does this portend the Trustees intend to become politically active in the community?
