Authorities arrested Morgan Hill’s Antolin Garcia-Torres on May 21, 2012, for the kidnap and murder of Sierra LaMar. Morgan Hill teen Sierra LaMar went missing on her way to school on March 16, 2012. The authorities had Antolin Garcia-Torres under-surveillance since March 28, 2012. They were gathering evidence and hoping he would lead authorities to her body. The authorities strongly believe that Sierra LaMar is dead. Authorities and volunteer are continuing to look for her body. On May 23, 2012 divers were looking in Uvas Reservoir in Santa Clara County. With the all DNA evidence against Antolin Garcia-Torres, his sister is saying "they don't have enough evidence to convict him." If it they did not have enough evidence, why was his DNA found on her clothes in the Juicy backpack and Sierra’s DNA found in his car? Did they know each other? Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith said they have no evidence that knew each other. Antolin Garcia-Torres’s DNA was in the system, because of an assault back in March 2009. In 2009 there were three assaults at the Safeway parking lot 840 E. Dunne Ave. in Morgan Hill. The suspect would enter women’s car through the drivers-side rear door. One woman said her attacker used a Taser gun to stun her, authorities believed the attacker was the same in all three cases. If this was Antolin Garcia-Torres attacking women back in 2009 it is a shame that he was not arrested back then he would have been off the streets and Sierra would have probably been a live today. As the authorities continue to search for Sierra’s body, I just hope they have the right sick S.O.B. off the streets. My prayers go out to the LaMar family.

After 41 years Oakland’s Golden State Warriors will be back in San Francisco in 2017. In 1962 the Warriors left Philadelphia and move to Daly City right outside of San Francisco to play at the Cow Palace. The Warriors moved to Oakland -Alameda County Coliseum Arena in 1966, but the move didn’t become permanent until the Oakland Coliseum was renovated and renamed the Oracle Arena this was in 1971. That is when the Warriors became the Golden State Warriors. The new sight for the Golden State Warriors is going to be in San Francisco’s waterfront district at the foot of the Bay Bridge at Piers 30-32. This project is going to be good for San Francisco it will bring much needed jobs to the city. It is being funded privately at a cost of $300 million to $500 million. That is also good because the people of San Francisco won’t have to pay extra taxes. This new arena could have some great concerts and other events there. Some of the draw backs of this project would be the city of Oakland would be losing a lot of jobs. Will the people of Oakland be able to get jobs at the new arena and help build it? What about the traffic? What if there is a Giants game at the same time the Warriors are playing? I sure would hate to be in that traffic. Over all this seems like a good move maybe this might help the Warriors become a winning team again. Don’t hold your breath.

When I saw the cover of Time magazine, I laughed and said what a person would not do to be noticed. Jamie Lynn Grumet is a 26 year old model, decided to use her 3 year old son as a prop. This little boy is going to be known for standing on a chair sucking on his mother’s breast, on a national magazine cover. Jamie Lynn Grumet did not take into consideration on how this would affect her son in the long run. This little boy is going to be teased unmercifully, I feel so sorry for him. This 3 year old boy had no control over what his mother did, shame on you Jamie Lynn Grumet. Being a mother myself I wanted to breastfeed up to six months, but do to a health reasons that was not possible. I would not put my child in a situation like that, to be teased all his life. I think there should be a cut off for breast feeding of a child, when the child is walking, talking and is of preschool age that should be it. If you don’t agree, then do it in private. Hey! Is that why most men are fascinated with breasts did their mommies’ breast feed them until they were toddlers or older.

On May 9, 2012, President Obama came out and said that he is in support of same sex marriage. Back in 1996 when he was running for Governor of Illinois he checked a box that said “I favor legalizing same-sex marriages and would fight efforts to prohibit such marriages.” When the President was elected, the same question was asked again it was the complete opposite, he said “marriage is between a man and a woman that was in 2004. In 2010 he said “my feeling are constantly evolving, I struggle with this”. In 2011 he was still struggling with it. I say it is about time that there is a President that came out in support of same-sex marriage. Remember he did check that box in 1996, he probably thought it was right back then. I think it is brave of President Obama, because homosexual should have the same rights as “the man and woman union”. I know in every family in this nation there is a family member or someone who knows a homosexual. I say yes, why not give them the right to marry they contribute to this society just like the heterosexuals do. They raise children, pay their taxes and are in the military. What is the big deal? Who knows if this will hurt Presidents Obama’s reelection? I just want say, he has the strength and poise of a great leader to change his mind and let the people know about it. No matter what happens with the reelection I am proud to call him President.

The May Day protests got out of hand in Northern California. In Oakland it started off peaceful, then by noon time the trouble makers started up with the Oakland Police. Some protesters with black shields with the letter “A” on it shoved the police lines, threw things at the police, pounded on police vehicles, threaten the police with a pole, 23 people were arrested. The Oakland Police in my opinion did very good to keep their composure with all they had to deal with that day. These Anarchists are trouble makers and they cause a perfectly peaceful and relevant protest to become tainted with things that they do. Thinking bad press will help the protest. Not only does the Anarchist do stupid things. In San Francisco 2 men threw pipes and bricks from on top of a building at the San Francisco police. They hit one man in the crowd in the head. What in the world was this dummy trying to prove? People like this in my opinion deserve to get treated the way they do from law enforcement because they don’t have in regards for others.

On April 28, 2012 18-year-old Osana Futi a star running back at Newark Memorial High School was stabbed at a house party in Fremont California. When police responded to a loud party and reports of gunshots they found Osana Futi stabbed and bleeding. Osana Futi was pronounced dead early Sunday morning at the hospital. The man who was arrested for the stabbing Osana Futi was another 18-year old from Fremont named Abraham Hade. Three male juveniles were also arrested on accessories. It is sad that the youth of today are killing each other.
Osana Futi life was cut short and the young men who did the crime as well. Osana Futi had some anger issues in the past, because his best friend was killed. Osana Futi was getting his life together he was looking forward to graduating and going to college. What could have been that serious? The youth of today are so, quick to pick up guns and knives to settle disputes they think it shows how hard and gangster they are, but it really shows how utterly stupid they really are. Youth of today stop killing each other!
