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.

This is what we call 'transference'

By Marsha Lilly - Oceanside

I thought the March 20 article “Dune denouement?” was very thorough, unbiased, and, of course, expedient, but need to comment on longtime dunes advocate Kevin Rice’s statement, which absolutely makes solid any beginning psych book’s definition of, I believe it’s called, transference. The question is, he says, “How far should we modify, impact, or destroy the natural state of the dunes for the benefit of the residents of the Nipomo Mesa?” Please substitute the last six words of his statement with “the non-resident riders at ODSVRA.”

Thanks for your good journalism.
