Months Later, Sniper Attack at Power Hub Still a Mystery
By NORIMITSU ONISHI and MATTHEW L. WALDFEB. 5, 2014
SAN FRANCISCO — A mysterious and sophisticated sniper attack last year on a Silicon Valley power substation has underscored concerns about the vulnerability of the country’s electrical grid and prompted debate over whether it was an act of terrorism.
The chain of events is not in dispute: Shortly before 1:30 a.m. on April 16, 2013, one or more people methodically cut communication cables near a Pacific Gas & Electric substation in San Jose, sprayed more than 100 rifle bullets and knocked out 17 of the station’s 23 transformers before fleeing and avoiding capture. A grainy black-and-white surveillance video released by the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s office in a search for leads shows shots being fired for about a minute at the substation.
Though the utility was able to prevent a power failure by diverting electricity from other areas, the damage took 27 days to repair, said Brian Swanson, a spokesman for Pacific Gas & Electric.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation has been investigating the attack, but says it has no evidence of terrorism nor any suspects.

New Orleans nun's truck towed while she delivers food to homeless

There should have been a sign reading, "Thou shalt not park here." Then a New Orleans nun — who was delivering food to the homeless — might not have gotten towed.

I wish some one wealthy would buy out this "zoo" ? Fire everyone who works there and either hire new people to care for the animals or parcel them out to other sanctuary's. Unbelievable!
