Which College Will Scoby Sign With? | Unemployment Rates for Monrovia and the State

~ Speculation about what college Monrovia running back Kurt Scoby will choose. Arizona State?

~ Unemployment dips in California, but is up a bit in Monrovia (Patch: ). Comment: What bugs me about news reports I've seen on employment numbers (here's a Star-News report, too: ) is that they don't address the main criticism: the claim that employers are switching to part-timers to avoid Obamacare mandates. For example, if you fire one full-timer and hire two part-timers, you are "adding jobs," but I don't think that is exactly good news. I hope the criticism is wrong, but I'd like to hear it addressed. Are more hours being worked or not?
