  1. 28 California colleges, universities have a restrictivea protest, demonstration policiesRead the original story w/Photo

    Sunday Aug 9 | San Bernardino County Sun

    Sonoma State doesn't have a free speech zone of the kind that got Cal Poly Pomona into hot water earlier this year - and cost them $35,000 to get back out - but it does have the Mario Savio's Speakers Corner, named after the activist-turned-math teacher. Although political speech isn't restricted on campus, some groups still choose to use the site, to honor the teacher who fought for the rights of students to be politically active at the University of California in Berkeley in the 1960s.

    Jul 18, 2015 | San Bernardino County Sun

    Five years after the Obama administration promised to move swiftly to permanently plug unused oil and gas wells in the Gulf of Mexico, even more shafts are lingering for longer periods with only temporary sealing, an investigation by The Associated Press shows.

A bill to legalize so-called lane-splitting cleared the Assembly last week by a wide margin, bolstered by a recent UC Berkeley study that found the controversial practice is relatively safe, so long as motorcyclists do it at 50 mph or slower.
