RIP BRAD WOODINGTON – COUNTY COMM – UPDATE – SEE https://thefarsider.net/2023/08/10/rip-brad-woodington-county-comm/


Leroy, please help me with a request…In July 1983 a photo was taken at Williams Street Park of the entire SJPD traffic unit in a “V” type formation. (I was on vacation when the photo was taken and never got a copy of it.)  Since Larry Otter was the Captain of the unit, it’s possible he may be in the photo.  Whether or not, his family would certainly like to have a copy of that photo.  If someone has a copy could they please scan and email the photo to me at tucsonron1462@msn.com and I’ll forward it to Larry’s daughter.  Thanks

“I just saw Scott Cornfield’s post in Farsider. That left me thinking… The SJPD family has birthed a number of good authors. Maybe consider doing a story on as many as we can think of with some photos, blurbs of their backgrounds and books published., Might be an interesting read. Here’s a few I can think of right away.”

Funny Joke: Happy Couple

Organized retail crime ‘particularly acute’ in California, industry expert says

Nordstrom in Los Angeles ransacked by large group of criminals who nabbed as much as $100K worth of productS

Organized retail crime is a burgeoning issue impacting retailers nationwide. However, the incidents in California are “particularly acute,” according to Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) President Brian Dodge. 

“As it relates to crime and organized retail crime, California is truly in a league of its own,” Dodge told FOX Business. 

Dodge specifically referenced policy decisions California has made in recent years that he said made it easier for criminals to avoid prosecution and recruit boosters, a term for individuals who steal goods and merchandise as part of a bigger operation.

 Ivek Ramaswamy shares 10 commandments of 2024

I do not think Vivek has a chance to win, but I do believe he is probably the most intelligent, articulate candidate with the best plan for the defense of our Nation.
Vivek Ramaswamy, a biotech entrepreneur seeking the GOP nomination for the 2024 presidential election, offered a list of 10 ideas that he said were true. CLICK HERE


1 . Law of Mechanical Repair
– After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you’ll have to pee.

2. Law of Gravity
– Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least
accessible place in the universe.

3. Law of Probability
– The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the
stupidity of your act.

4. Law of Random Numbers
– If you dial a wrong number, you never get a busy signal; someone always answers.

5. Variation Law
– If you change lines (or traffic lanes), the one you were in will
always move faster than the one you are in now.

6. Law of the Bath
– When the body is fully immersed in water, the telephone will ring.

7. Law of Close Encounters
– The probability of meeting someone you know INCREASES dramatically
when you are with someone you don’t want to be seen with.

8. Law of the Result
– When you try to prove to someone that a machine won’t work, IT WILL!!!

9. Law of Biomechanics
– The severity of the itch is inversely proportional to the reach.

10 . Law of the Theater & Hockey Arena
– At any event, the people whose seats are furthest from the aisle, always arrive last. They are the ones who will leave their seats several times to go
for food, beer, or the toilet and who leave early before the end of the
performance or the game is over. The folks in the aisle seats come early,
never move once, have long gangly legs or big bellies and stay to the bitter end of the performance. The aisle people also are very surly folk.

11. The Coffee Law
– As soon as you sit down to a cup of hot coffee, your boss will ask you to do something which will last until the coffee is cold.

12. Murphy’s Law of Lockers
– If there are only 2 people in a locker room, they will have adjacent lockers.

13. Law of Physical Surfaces
– The chances of an open-faced jelly sandwich landing face down on a floor are directly correlated to the newness and cost of the carpet or rug.

14. Law of Logical Argument
– Anything is possible IF you don’t know what you are talking about. 15. Law of Physical Appearance
– If the clothes fit, they’re ugly.

16. Law of Public Speaking

17. Law of Commercial Marketing Strategy
– As soon as you find a product that you really like, they will stop making it OR the store will stop selling it!

18. Doctors’ Law
– If you don’t feel well, make an appointment to go to the doctor, by
the time you get there, you’ll feel better. But don’t make an appointment and
you’ll stay sick.
