Weekly Poll
How much do you think large monetary contributions to campaigns can sway elected officials?

Way too much; it’s seriously time to big take money out of politics.
Enough to reevaluate campaign finance laws and how they impact our political system.
Maybe a little; but in the end they still must answer to voters.
Not a concern; it’s how things work, and any serious candidate must stack some chips.

Thanks for not running into me with your car

By Betty Kennedy - San Luis Obipo

I am grateful to have survived 2013 walking in the crosswalks of beautiful San Luis Obispo—thanks to those drivers who actually stopped for all of us.

My wish for 2014 is that more drivers will learn why brakes were installed and maybe learn what crosswalks are for. Thank you for the 2014 drivers who have stopped for pedestrians.
