Turf replacement project paying dividends

Dave Roberts

We are loving our new, artificial turf. All 6,000 square feet of it.

Earlier this month, the front and back yards of our Solana Beach home bustled with activity as crews ripped out a very-thirsty lawn and replaced it with nice, artificial turf that looks so real that you wouldn’t know it’s fake until you run your fingers through it.

Recent spotlight on domestic violence brings up questions

The news regularly reminds us that we live in a violent world. Ever since Europeans colonized America, violence has been glorified and its consequences minimized. From movies about the Wild West to “Roadrunner” cartoons to NFL and ESPN highlight videos of “best hits” to violent video games and rap music lyrics, we have become numb to the results of physical aggression. Until the past few months!

Disturbing videos of partner violence and violence towards a child by a professional athlete have understandably horrified people. Although most of us suspected that domestic violence occurred in some homes, seeing the evidence has created a groundswell of disgust.

Rant with Randi: Domestic violence is real

Randi Crawford

Do you remember Richard Sherman’s infamous interview with Erin Andrews after the Seahawks NFC Championship win? Sherman set up the interception that sent his team to the Super Bowl, and after the play, he went ballistic in an interview with Erin Andrews, dissing San Francisco 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree. And before you knew it, everyone was calling Richard Sherman a thug.

I want to talk about a real thug and a real issue that needs national attention. Ray Rice beating up his fiancée, and then dragging her out of an elevator, unconscious, like a sack of potatoes. I hope this video is going to help victims of domestic violence gain credibility. We see these men play football, large companies sponsor some, and then we hear about various charges made against them — rape, violence, and even murder. We (the public) never know when it’s real, or whether it’s false accusations. How could we know? We aren’t there!
