Riverside County joined four other counties in implementing state Proposition 90, which gives homeowners 55 or older a tax break by allowing them to transfer the assessed value of a home they are selling to a new home in another county. The county Board of Supervisors voted 4 to 1 for implementation after hearing testimony from the California Assn. of Realtors, the American Assn. of Retired Persons and other supporters.

Pit bull advocates on Tuesday derided a new ordinance requiring that pit bulls be spayed or neutered in unincorporated parts of the Riverside County. Officials said the move was an attempt to reduce the number of pit bull-breed dogs euthanized by county shelters but also to stem a threat to public safety highlighted by recent attacks. Speakers became emotional as they stood before the Riverside County supervisors Tuesday, telling them about their encounters - both positive and negative - with pit bulls.

Protesters targeting a Church of Scientology compound near Hemet now face stricter limits on how they can conduct demonstrations, according to a new ordinance adopted Tuesday by the Riverside County Board of Supervisors. The measure, which critics say violates the 1st Amendment and gives the church special treatment, requires anyone protesting near private residences to stay at least 30 feet from the property line.

Riverside County supervisors are considering an ordinance that would require pit bulls not owned by certain groups to be sterilized in all unincorporated cities. The ordinance - which would affect pit bulls older than 4 months if they are not owned by licensed breeders, law enforcement or people who need them for assistance - was initially approved 5 to 0 Tuesday with a second reading scheduled for next month. Dogs in special training would also receive an exemption. Supervisor Jeff Stone said the law was particularly relevant given recent headlines on pit bull attacks.

After weeks of protests from Mead Valley residents living near a high-risk paroled sex offender, the Riverside County Board of Supervisors unanimously passed an ordinance Tuesday that tightens restrictions on where paroled offenders can live. The ordinance was written by Supervisor Jeff Stone this month after convicted rapist David Allyn Dokich, 52, was placed in a Mead Valley neighborhood, near Perris in western Riverside County.

The Vagos Motorcycle Club alleges in a lawsuit that Riverside County law enforcement authorities defamed the group and damaged its reputation by falsely linking members to attacks against Hemet police officers. Statements made by officials, including former Riverside County Dist. Atty. Rod Pacheco and Hemet Police Chief Richard Dana, described the group as "cockroaches" and "terrorists" who "practice an extreme brand of violence," the lawsuit states. The comments implicated the Vagos club in the attacks and were made in the wake of Operation Everywhere, a March 2010 law enforcement action targeting 30 alleged members, according to the suit filed Thursday in Riverside County Superior Court.
