Should oil companies be allowed to drill off the coast in SLO County?

Who are we to stand in the way of a company's profits? Drill away!
Yes but we should be sensitive to environmental concerns and only allow a few drilling operations.
No. It's environmentally destructive and the costs of a spill would be disastrous for SLO County.

Thoughts from Earth


It’s never too early to instill a love of nature and poetry into the next generation.

That’s why Cayucos-based author Kime recently published a book of poems called Our Earth Has a Voice. This book of rhymes depicts nature’s beautiful creations. Kime envisioned this book as a quiet-time read for children ages 3 to 7 years old. According to the author, her words allow readers to immerse themselves in their everyday surroundings and appreciate the colorful splendor that life has to offer.

Our Earth Has a Voice costs $13.05 for the paperback version on Amazon and $9.99 for the Kindle edition.
