Panga Boat Bust 9/6

Weekly Poll
Should police be allowed to use surplus military equipment?

Cheap or free gear for local police? Sounds good to me.
No. Police are meant to serve the people, not to threaten them.
If they use it properly I don’t see any reason why not, but I don’t feel comfortable seeing cops with assault rifles.
Nothing says democracy like a bayonet to the butt.

Fracking is a myth

Margaret Careaga - Paso Robles

Let’s face the fact that there is no fracking in Santa Barbara County. Why they brought up this initiative is a distraction because they know there is no fracking, but rather a ploy to stop oil production. The loss of those tax dollars, more than $16 million, is going to come out of the already distressed taxpayers’ pocket. It’s going to cause the loss of the much-needed jobs in the North County’s depressed economy, as well as the loss of donation monies to the schools and other nonprofit groups that the oil companies will not be able to help.
