Cottonwood AZ (August 5, 2014) – Since the arrest of Robert Reed, 60, in September of 2013 for the murder of Kristal Forest, YCSO detectives have made it their mission to find her remains. Lead detective Doug Brown, assisted by Cold Case Unit volunteer and retired detective, Paul Chastain, spent hundreds of hours chasing leads, conducting searches, and interviewing anyone who might have information regarding the case, including Reed. The persistence paid off in July of this year when Reed confessed to murdering Forest and dumping her body in an area near El Paso, Texas. The action was part of a plea agreement with Reed who pled guilty to a 2nd degree Murder charge.   Read More→

… nearly everywhere in the world … the bay area is especially so and the magic that is Sausalito invites wonderment and an imagination that drifts with the wisps of fog flowing down the hill … spirits fill the air and homes absorb the fleeting moments of sun before retreating into the coolness and quietude of the mists. Sus and I spent Friday afternoon in Sausalito and memories of times long ago now absorbed in the mist flooded back in the present. Corky and I used to enjoy weekend trips up the coast and we spent several weekends (and longer) each year exploring and enjoying the beauty that is San Francisco and environs. Tiburon and Sausalito were always high on our list.

(August 5, 2014) – I posted a video on Facebook yesterday – As a defense of Israel, it was satisfying in its clarity – explaining the current situation in a way that made it impossible to misunderstand Israels actions this past two weeks – these most current hostilities as they relate to recent history and serve as predictors of the future. However complicated the ultimate solution may be – however long that region of the world may have to wait for a durable peace – Israel holds the moral high ground and with it, justification for whatever may need to be done to preserve sovereignty and protect it’s citizens. Good guys and bad guys. Black and white. At a time when so little is clear, I found satisfaction in this video’s and my own conclusion that Israel was fighting the good fight. However many Palestinians might die that night, the Israeli army are the good guys. They were my team! I slept well. Read More→
