*Sometimes the thoughts in my head get so bored they go out for a stroll through my mouth… this is rarely a good thing.
There are at least 10 of registered sex offenders folks living within the Dixon City limits. You can go to the state site and see their addresses and photos. You can expand the search for the rural areas and nearby cities.
They may have their rights but we do too. We have the right to know who our neighbors are and we all need to be on alert to protect our children and citizens. You need to go to this site and check the areas where you, your friends, and relatives live and/or send them the information they need to keep informed.
You Can’t Fix Stupid
Our stupid, ultra-liberal California Supreme Court ruled last month, that once again, California voters have no say about their state, their safety, or what idiots are appointed to the Supreme Court.
They ruled the 2,000 foot barrier that was required between where registered sex offenders live and schools and parks where children gather was get this, “too restrictive”. So they neutered Jessica’s Law: (The passage of Jessica’s Law was a historic moment for the State of California, which has the highest population of sex offenders in the nation.) and officials now have 60 days to review the files of about 6,000 paroled sex offenders living in the state… of which about half are convicted child molesters according to published reports.
Sooo… you can now have a known, convicted, child molesting pervert watch your children at school or playing in the park from the comfort of their front yard/porch… Isn’t that special? What in the hell are these clowns thinking? Voters passed the law by a 70 per cent margin… how can a few on the court overrule the will of the people? Simple, appoint the right people that think the wrong way and have little to no regard for the will of the voters or the rights of taxpaying citizens… And you still wonder why the world looks at California as the land of fruits and nuts?
- Inform children that it is wrong for adults to engage children in sexual activity.
- Stress to your child that he or she should feel comfortable telling you anything, especially if it involves another adult. If your child does not feel comfortable being completely honest with you, then together you should find another trusted adult your child can talk to in confidence.
- One of the major reasons why it is important to be informed about sexual assault is so that you can take steps to prevent it. And, there are indeed steps you can take to reduce your risk of sexual assault, your child’s risk, or the risk facing others. Also remember that in the vast majority of cases (up to 90%); children are molested by someone they know. Your efforts at keeping your child safe must be informed by this fact and not focused exclusively on the danger that strangers may present. Go to megan’slaw.com and read, “How to Protect Yourself and Your Family”.
- This is why we (Dixon TFT’s) don’t let anyone buy their way into children’s homes at Christmas with “gifts”. No adopt-a-family or any such thing. The children and families come to visit with us and our screened Santa who hands out all gifts.
Nearby Park Neat But Expensive
…With summer here already
We launched a boat from Brannan Island State Recreation area last week to fish for stripers out of Rio Vista. It was my first time there. We normally stay on this side of the bridge and launch from either the Rio Vista City launch or the county’s Sandy Beach recreation area launch… each cost $10. Sandy Beach has a neat RV park, swimming and fishing from both bank and boat. You just go to downtown Rio Vista and follow the signs to either place.
Now the state place is a different breed of carp. They charge $33 peak time camping with a $2 discount for seniors. Then if you want electric and water it goes up to $44 but if you pay that, you can launch a boat for $8. For day use you’ll pay $10 and/or $18 to launch. It’s run by American Land and Leisure. The moral of this story? Stay on this side of the bridge and use the city or county sites.

*If I had a dollar for every time one of my kids said “Dad, you’re not funny!” I could buy a house at the beach… and live alone.
*Don’t confuse my personality with my attitude. My personality is who I am… my attitude depends on who you are.

*If you find yourself being anxious over something you’ve said or done, relax… just remember that 90% of the world only cares about what you look like.
