Measure I, the attempted $900 million extraction of local property taxes by the Morgan Hill Unified School District for a vaguely defined range of construction projects, was rejected in a veritable landslide. For once, the voters mobilized and rose up to crush a measure...

Driving along Avenue 12 in Madera and then passing the future intersections at Avenue 11, there are structures but the connections are nowhere in sight. They are abandoned and not properly secured as links in the future construction.
