@531- The guess the key word is "hidden".... how is that thief supposed to see a "hidden" camera???

And, YES, there are some cameras that are easier to spot than others.....

Now, if the plant owner had put those little tracking devices, they would be able to track them down.

Despite the boycott talk, people are or aren't shopping at Haggens on the basis of price/selection. As far as supporting the remaining employees, if the store fails another will take its place, and if successful, even more employees will be hired. Poorly managed stores don't deserve automatic support.

Chorro Fire Continues Burning Near ...

2015-08-04 08:32 AM

Its another colossal waste of money. 200 firefighters for a fire that will burn through deep wilderness and will probably never get near a home or ranch. Just like the Zaca fire, that only got near a couple homes back near Los Olivos and cost Hundreds of Millions of dollars. We need to get back to the fire "management" science and recognize that the wilderness NEEDS to burn every 5 years or so. Cleans out the under brush, helps many plants re-seed AND it lessens the risk of very big and hot fires as a result. Current techniques are only about how much money can go into pensions and pay for subcontractors supplying fuel and flying planes.

I heard Haggens is now blaming the individual store managers for their failed sales predictions

I feel bad for the first round of people laid off, then the disabled, and the old contract lifers who are working harder and for few hours just trying to keep a hold on their jobs

What Haggens needs to do is to apologize to all the communities, reset their prices and beg the customers to return or they will be out of business before any lawsuit gets to court

By opinion:

This is a Private Equity Ponzie scheme.
With No intention of serving the public.
And Not in it for long-term business purposes.
It's a short-term milking play for raking all the cash.
Chosen as a patsy to satisfy FTC monopoly requirements.
It is massively debt-laden and not sustainable, by design.
Layoffs, high prices, late bill payments, all a part of the ploy.

See it now for it's guaranteed to disappear later. By design.

It's not an illusion and not your fault if it goes out of business because nobody shops there. The intent is to take out as much cash as possible, as fast as possible and leaving behind an empty carcass is irrelevant.

How many of you walk through the process of discovery in your mind. A helicopter flies over. People look out a window. They decide it's natural seepage. Are they right? It's guessing.

Occam's razor suggests the obvious. Oil "seeping" in an area that has an oil derrick right in the center of it? Hmmmm. Wonder what it could be.

Not to mention. In foods? "Natural ingredients is the catch-all for everything not qualified as real food. Like MSG is a natural ingredient. Is it natural? Is seepage out of an old well natural?

Naturally, the industry needs you to think it is.

504, no, there are not. But the corporation doing the layoffs has to pay some of the unemployment salary that the state provides. I think for up to 26 weeks. During the recession you could get unemployment for up to 99 weeks or something.

Vons can't wait until Haggen goes under and they have a virtual lock on supermarkets in this town. Then we will be much better off, I'm sure.

Motorcycle Accident on Cabrillo

2015-08-04 08:02 AM

@491, not necessarily true. A motorcycle isn't designed to broadside a steel car at 40mph and bounce off. The U-turn implies the car was not moving in the direction of the motorcycle, so the difference in speeds between them was high - full impact speed for the moto if the car was perpendicular to traffic.

I just purchased some items at Haggen's that were cheaper than those at Von's.

I will continue to shop at Haggen's, unjustly targeted by biased reporting. Pathpoint has done a great disservice to the community and to the disabled. Now hiring a disabled person will risk a lawsuit.

Please consider supporting the remaining employees at Haggen's and stop the witch hunt. Haggen's is certainly less expensive than some of the alternatives in town. .

Haggen Sued for Discrimination

2015-08-04 07:38 AM

Long before these lay-offs the Haggen chain came in cleaned up the stores a little, hung a new sign and jacked up most of the prices except for a few loss leaders. To the apparent surprise of the upper management the price increases did matter and large numbers of customers began shopping elsewhere. I have shopped at the Vons/Safeway in the Turnpike center for 33 years and I estimate fairly accurately my family and I have spent roughly $200,000 dollars there during that time. Like most of my neighbors I am not rich and I am not lazy. I will drive a little further to a store like Ralphs (Magnolia Center) to save substantial money, NOT just a few dollars. Current price of dog food at Ralph's is $.79 cents a can, at Haggen's $1.49 for the same can. The difference on just that one item is $5.00 a week for me. This is not indignation over lay-offs but rather pure economics.

I don't know what her folks told her but probley something bad about me... The little BRAT started yelling at Joey and chasing him around. Now I'm looking at family woodchippers on Amazon...:).

While it's pretty clear that an illegal u-turn makes the Lexis driver blameworthy, if the motorcycle was "broken in half" or even close to broken in half it must have been moving at a very dangerous speed. Even a full freeway speed collision normally won't break up a motorcycle structurally.
