Gov.-Elect Gavin Newsom (Credit: Gavin Newsome) Commentary Gavin Newsom will inherit troubled bullet train project State auditor rips the project for wasting billions of dollars By Dan Walters | CALmatters Columnist The messiest bit of unfinished business Gov. Jerry Brown will bequeath to successor Gavin Newsom is one of the outgoing governor’s pet projects, a north-south bullet train project. One could even say it’s a hot mess, given the revelations of a new audit of the multi-billion-dollar project’s first phase.

However, State Auditor Elaine Howle told the Legislature that the High-Speed Rail Authority’s “flawed decision making regarding the start of high-speed rail system construction in the Central Valley and its … [Read more...] about Daily Business Report-Dec. 3, 2018, San Diego Metro Magazine

Drew Costley Updated 10:25 am PDT, Monday, September 10, 2018 Now Playing: Vader, a K9 with the San Francisco Fire Department, climbs a ladder during company drills outside of the de Young Museum in San Francisco. Media: Courtesy of the San Francisco Fire Department Vader, a search K9 with the San Francisco Fire Department, had a moment in the spotlight last week when the San Francisco Fire Department posted a video to Twitter of the dog climbing a ladder outside of the de Young Museum. "This K9 may save your life during a disaster. Vader is trained as a live body search K9. Good job Vader!" reads the Twitter post.

Vader was scheduled to be euthanized when he was found by the National Search Dog Foundation. He was a stray living at the Rescue Ranch in Yreka, Calif. when the ranch got into touch with the foundation, an organization based in Southern … [Read more...] about WATCH: San Francisco Fire Department search dog climbs a ladder
