If this story makes the papers, why can't my 7 year civil lawsuit against CTB McGraw-Hill and Kelly Services? It just goes to show who owns who! Some paper you have!

Lydia Villarreal is a horrible judge. She was appointed to the bench because she's a Latina. Sit in her court room and you'll learn for yourself that's she's not qualified to hear any case other than small claims. She and her bailiff think she's Judge Judy on TV.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, and the allegations against others are just merely allegations from someone who is claiming no wrongdoing and claiming the FBI would raid a home without merit,highly unlikely. Watch to see all that falls out of this closet. Its correct that humans have been hurt, many!

Monterey must be where all the "Monk" and "Psych" writers get their ideas for crimes.

The tone of your piece is most unfortunate.
The use of the word “But” to lead the sixth paragraph is seriously unprofessional.
Likewise the use of the word “Ironically” to lead a paragraph at the bottom of the story.
When the facts come out, perhaps you'll resign, or at least send a note of apology.

Thank you Tony Seton, I couldn't agree more. As I read the article, I couldn't help but wonder if the the writer ever heard of terms like "impartial", or "non-bias". Must have missed that day at Journalism School. It's the unprofessional skills this writer clearly exhibits that has given the sour taste most of us have for today's media. Not only is the tone unfortunate, it's just disgusting. The news is supposed to be a reporting of events, not stating opinion as if it is fact. The 1st paragraph would have you believe that the snake was brandished by Ms. Alexander, however, it is later in the article that it's explained that the serpent was brandished at Ms. Alexander. Was it really necessary to twist the 1st paragraph? Or the use of the word "ironically" in such an inflammatory way? The truth will come out, and when it does, I beg the Herald to send you packing.

Wow this woman seems small time assuming the allegations are true and she seems fairly willing to talk with the media, something criminals rarely want to do so just because there was a raid does not mean wrongdoing.
That said Basil and Roger Mills were a\ccused of elder abuse in a lawsuit involving $500,000. They "took" TWENTY MILLION DOLLARS from City of Salinas employees in a hard money lending scheme that ran through the finance department and Gabilan Mortgage and no raids yet on City Hall or the Mills brothers? The twenty million was just the tip of a hundred million dollar ice berg, plenty of ponzi scheme like borrowing for sure. Seems to me someone needs to phone a friend and ask Basil and Roger and the City of Salinas what was going on there.
Also whats new with Cedar Funding and who did their books, Hayashi and Wayland? That was reported in this paper. During the bubble seems like a lot of ponzi schemes fell apart including the City of Salinas' own scheme with their good old boys.

Who was the unlicensed contractor that made off with 200k ?
The state license board might want to give them a little present . Maybe they should try the snake thing to get the twenty million back for the city of salinas pension fund.Sounds like a great investment where should I send my check ?
refinance some upside down mortgages with that hard money , then when you can't pay you get a snake in the mailbox or a horses head under your blanket.

Thanks I thought so. Kramer probably seduced the woman into giving Alexander (George Costanzas real name) the money.

And judging by raids and such, there's going to be more to come of this.

This article cracked me up. It's funny The Herald allows friends of Barbara to write the article. This is beyond biased. And the snake? AHAHAHAHA it's only a 4ft ball python... since when is a snake a weapon? I kept thinking about Indiana Jones as I read this. The lady is pure evil, and I know karma will have its way with her.

Yo, Tony. Didn't you have the "Quality News Network", a rip-off of CBS News Radio,circa 1970? As if YOU have room to talk.
