It could cost Americans 20 percent more to get their bacon fixes as a deadline virus sweeps through the nation's hog barns. (Patch file photo)

The price of pork can also go up because the price of beef is up. It's not just weather andRead More disease, it's also cost of fuel.

With prices rising in all industries, I call it the disease of liberal Democrats! And it is theRead More disease that will wipe out civilization!

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

the good news is that a reputable company bought Safeway; the bad news is they may keep the sameRead More awful management personnel therefore stifling its rebuilding.
Steve Pogue March 8, 2014 at 06:08 pm
Interesting that the price paid for long-established Safeway with 1,305 stores in 20 states is lessRead More than half of what Facebook paid for Whats App. Seems a little out of balance, no?
Gladwyn d'Souza March 10, 2014 at 08:47 am
Only if there is an earthquake or other natural disaster and folks are dependent on the three dayRead More supply at Safeway. Hopefully Albertson closes all these dumps. Remember Safeway's response to selling pink slime- all our products are approved by the USDA.

how these lower wage employees can live in the bay area is a real conundrum. good luck with theseRead More good idea retailers. at least you know of a good place to go shopping

Throwing more money into education is not the answer. We have the highest per-student spending someRead More of the worst results. With the highest taxes of any state, we still have to raise money for schools through auctions and fundraisers. What a joke. If we want to fix the schools the state needs to: 1) Stop implementing Common Core 2) Get back to basics of reading, writing and math. Get ride of the hippy dippy social engineering crap. Having the internet in schools does nothing as all engineering and science is based on math. 3) Pass a right to work law so teachers aren't forced to join a union or at least end mandatory political contributions so the State can get out of the clutches 4) End tenure and make teachers' pay merit-based. 5) Require everyone to learn English rather than make everything bi/tri/quad-lingual.

If ten year is ended, make it merit based. Then shouldn't our legislative body also be paid on meritRead More based compensation plan. We have lost some excellent teachers to other fields because each year they were receiving pink slips on whether or not we as Californians could balance our budget. Start math and science education early and young. Vote for people who can do the math and the work. Their is still way too much waste in the state and not good strategic planners and problem solvers. Some how that was missed in law school. Ethics would be helpful too!

Ummm. California is in the bottom five in state funding for education.
Ralph Garcia February 7, 2014 at 04:46 pm
No the people (myself included) voted against. Further proof that a lot of us can't look into theRead More future. If Google can pay for the pick up point at the 2 ports the government may be cut out and then it will get done and way cheaper than with the government.
Mary McLinden February 7, 2014 at 06:43 pm
Google (or any company) providing a free commuter option for their employees causes housing pricesRead More in San Francisco to rise? How does that even compute?
Vid Prod February 10, 2014 at 09:11 am
The recent threat of a BART strike shows the value of CalTrain and the fact that such a strike can'tRead More tie the entire Bay Area into a catastrophic gridlock.

Kudos to CVS, I smoked for half a century and quit three years ago, I am one of the lucky ones.
Phillip Bailey February 7, 2014 at 01:46 pm
Mike (above said) How about letting us make our own choices? PC is alive and well at CVS. By theRead More way, what a dumb name for a drug store. I miss Long's. Gee Mike C.V.S. is the acronym and once stood for Consumer Value Store. It now stands for 'Convenience-Value and Service. I personally think CVS should be applauded for this. Smokers just don't SMOKE ... they walk into establishments and sit down near non smokers and the smokers often REEK of cigarette smoke and REEK is an understatement.
Bob Rosenthal February 8, 2014 at 12:20 pm
I'm elated to see the stance CVS has taken. I quit smoking 12 years ago after 60 years of smoking. IRead More could feel a difference almost immediately. I had triple bypass surgery three years ago as a result of smoking. If people want to smoke their brains out I have no problem. Freedom of choice. However, I feel that CVS should also discontinue the sale of all alcoholic beverages. Same goes for Walgreens. How can a drug store sell cigs and alcohol and the sell drugs to combat the effects of same? How can the citizenry allow this to happen and on the other hand vote to ban the sale of guns? Makes no sense to me.
