In the 2012 elections, J Street, the relatively new pro-Israel lobby whose stated purpose is to promote a progressive peace agenda in the Middle East, says its PAC disbursed more than $1.8 million to candidates from 26 states, thus helping eight Senate and 63 House hopefuls win their races. Among the winners are the chairs and ranking members of five committees, including the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Armed Services Committee, as well as chairs and ranking members of more than 30 subcommittees.

It's good to be reminded that Sacramento isn't just a consumer of our tax dollars and a dispenser of red tape. It's also a real place with real seasons - daunting heat in summer, golden leaves in fall, chill winds in winter, rampant green renewal in spring. My family and I spent a weekend in November, when fall foliage was still draping Capitol Park (between L and N and 10th and 15th streets) with gravitas. I found J Street livelier than I remembered from a few years before. My wife and daughter liked the wooden sidewalks and Old West flourishes of Old Sacramento.

A transient was arrested on suspicion of rape after a 19-year-old woman was found crying on a park bench, police said Thursday. The woman described the man to police and said she had been sexually assaulted near a bike path. A short time later police arrested Fernando Perez near Hueneme Road and J Street. The woman identified Perez, 30, as the man who had attacked her. Perez was arrested Wednesday and taken to Ventura County Jail, where he remains in lieu of $100,000 bail.

A 63-year-old Oxnard woman who had just walked her grandson to a school bus stop died after being struck by a sport-utility vehicle Wednesday morning at the intersection of Hill and J streets. Apparently blinded by the sun, a 17-year-old Santa Clara High School student struck Helen Calderon Martinez after first stopping at a stop sign, said Senior Officer Don Mulville, traffic coordinator for the Oxnard Police Department. Martinez was in the crosswalk on J Street.

I have been a resident of Port Hueneme for 10 years. My condominium overlooks Hueneme Beach and adjoining Ormond Beach. Over the years, I gradually saw the beaches flooded with all-terrain vehicles and the wildlife disappeared. My neighbors and I led a movement to have Oxnard ban the vehicles from its beach and join Port Hueneme in policing the areas. Once again, the wildlife began to return and this past year was spectacular. We were visited by three sizes of egret and heron of various types.

Later this month, the Palestinian Authority intends to go before the United Nations to request recognition of an independent Palestinian state. Although there is strong backing for the bid, the United States, in the name of supporting Israel, has stated its willingness to use its Security Council veto power to keep the Palestinians from joining the U.N. as a full voting member. The U.S. has also refused to join in a more symbolic General Assembly vote that could change the Palestinians' status from a "nonvoting observer entity" to a "nonvoting observer state.
