The San Francisco Giants win another World Series title. This is the Giants 6th title, to go with their 1905, 1921, 1922, 1954 and 2010 titles. There has been one other National League team to have a sweep a team in the World Series, the 1990 Cincinnati Reds. The San Francisco Giants won two games straight at home, 8 to 3 and 2 to 0. The Giants went to Detroit won game three 2 to 0. The San Francisco Giants won the series in the fourth game with a sweep of Detroit in the 10th inning 4 to 3. This was a team effort. San Francisco took an early lead. Pence hit a one-hop drive over the center-field fence for a double and Brandon Belt tripled on the next pitch for a 1 to 0 lead in the second inning. The third inning, Cabrera gave the Tigers a reason to think this might be their night. He hit a two run home run giving the Detroit the lead 2 to1. The Giants put a dent in Detroit's confidence. Giants Scutaro led off the sixth with a single and then Posey sent a shot that sailed just inside the left-field foul pole for two more runs giving the Giants 3 to 2 lead. Then Cabrera turned around and hit a home run tying the game 3-3. The game continued all the way to the bottom of the 9th with the score still tied. In the 10th inning Marco Scutaro delivered one more key hit with a go-ahead single with two outs in the 10th inning giving the Giants the lead 4-3. In the bottom of the 10th Sergio Romo got Triple Crown winner Miguel Cabrera looking with his third strike for the final out.
The manager Bruce Bochy had the foresight to put this team together and it paid off big time. The pitching was the most amazing thing I have ever seen in a World Series game. The hitting of the San Francisco Giants was also spectacular! The way Giants MVP of the series Pablo Sandoval put on a hitting clinic in game one was incredible. I was so excited that the Giants won the World Series again. I think that 2 championships in less than 3 years are pretty amazing. This shows how great the San Francisco Giants are. San Francisco Giants fans supported their team no matter what. The Giant fans in Northern California are gearing up for a parade on October 31, 2012. All you will be seeing is a sea of orange and black. It is time for celebration for the City of San Francisco and the Bay Area. Congratulations San Francisco Giants!

After all is said and done the Presidential Debates, really got on my last nerve. President Obama stood back in the first one like he did not want to be there. Mitt Romney was feeling himself and spewing lies. I don’t blame the President for his lack of participation. Mitt Romney stood there changing what he had been saying for months about the economy, women’s rights, Medicare, the 47%, and foreign policy. Just listening to an idiot like Mitt Romney would make anyone wish they weren't there. President Obama would answer the question that was asked, but Mitt Romney would only talk about what he thought the President did not do in his four years. Mitt Romney is so wishy washy he reminds me of that Bush character. Overall the debates President Obama made more sense than Mitt Romney he shut Romney down in the last two. I woke up this morning October 27, 2012 listening to the news. The media was reporting that Mitt Romney has a slight lead over President Obama. Of course the press is disguising the truth. The media makes money off political advertising, and the one thing that fuels the election cycle like none other is the presidential race. We will see on November 6, 2012 on what kind of President will have one that is for all the people or one that is for a few people.

On October 16, 2012, Dr. Marvin Bonham of Los Gatos was arrested and accused of supplying drugs to minors and trading prescription drugs for cash. Dr. Marvin Bonham was the medical director of the Valley Health Plan, Health and Hospital System of Santa Clara County. He worked for Santa Clara County for almost five years. When authorities went to search his Los Gatos hills home on October 3, 2012, they found weapons, burnt foils that are used to smoke Oxycontin, and the straws. He was growing marijuana under the house. There was marijuana plants hanging and drying in the garage. His roommate James Schneider 32 was arrested. Dr. Marvin Bonham wrote over 1,000 pills of Oxycontin for James Schneider. Dr. Marvin Bonham is facing charges of possession of methamphetamine for sale, prescribing without legitimate medical purpose, prescribing to addicts, possession of psilocybin mushrooms, possession of ecstasy and possession of marijuana for sale. Dr. Bonham will be arraigned on October 18, 2012 in San Jose Superior Court. He could face 25 years in prison if convicted.
I think Marvin Bonham should get the maximum sentence. He has the nerve to call himself a doctor. First of all he took an oath to do no harm. Well he sure threw that oath is out the window. Marvin Bonham, yes I’m not putting doctor in front of your name because you don’t deserve it shame on you.

On October 1, 2012 at 7 a.m. in the morning a 95-year-old woman was attacked in her home. A man picked the lock on her gate and kicked down her back door at her home on the 1100 block of Laurie Avenue. The man pepper sprayed her in the face. She has lived in the Willow Glen neighborhood for 40 years. Her neighbors are upset, horrified and very uncomfortable. Shanna Desai a mother of two who lives down the street on Laurie Avenue said “People aren't sleeping well at night knowing they could be the next target.” “ We've had too many things happen in a short parameter of time, so nobody feels comfortable.” According to the latest numbers from San Jose police, as of September, response times were majorly lagging. Monday morning’s home invasion qualified as “Priority Two.” The latest numbers show that instead of the target eleven-minute response, it takes an average of nearly 18 minutes for officers to response. Burglaries are up 54- and 72-percent in two areas of Willow Glen, and almost 35-percent city-wide. James Gonzales, a spokesman for the Police Officer Association says “We’re down 340 officers and we’re down a gang enforcement team, burglaries are up 150-percent in areas of Evergreen.” “There should be more press releases, more information provided to the public. We've seen a systemic quelling of information about crime coming from City Hall.”
This situation is scary, because I had no idea that James Gonzales, and home invasions are up in the area where I live. I sleep with my window open I have to really change that. This shows me that City Hall does not care about public safety. This is a very BIG problem. We pay our taxes which pay City Hall’s elected officials salaries so let’s demand they do something about this. Like starting off with the hiring of more Police Officers, so San Jose can become one of the safest cities to live in again.

On September 26, 2012 James Izumizaki 28, was arrested on suspicion of a lewd act with a child under 14 following reports that he had an inappropriate relationship with a former student. James Izumizaki was found dead in his car, of an apparent suicide between 10 and 10:30 a.m. in his car on Via Alamitos in San Lorenzo on October 1, 2012. Sgt. J.D. Nelson of the Alameda County Sheriff's Department said a family member who lives nearby found James Izumizaki. The Albany School community is stunned that their beloved teacher and coach is dead. James Izumizaki was a teacher at Albany Middle School for five years he taught sixth grade.
I’m wondering if he was innocent why he apparently killed himself. Well we will never know if he was innocent or guilty. He took the coward’s way out. I think, James Izumizaki was guilty and he was ashamed. No innocent person would do that. I’m not surprised some the educators that are supposed to educate and keep our children safe are doing unlawful things. I don’t have any sympathy for any adult who prey's on children.
