Weekly Poll
Justin Vineyards and Winery said they won’t plant a vineyard on the land where they clear cut acres of native trees. What should be done with the property?

Put it in conservation for perpetuity, and hope the moonscape can recover.
Build tiny homes. Homeless people deserve to be surrounded by beauty also!
Sell it to someone that dry farms, like everyone else surrounding the property.
Let them keep it and do whatever they damn well please. It’s their property!

No, we don't need more alcohol

Santa Margarita

By Kevin Lee

I really love living on the Central Coast, but there are some politician and law enforcement priorities that I really question. We have a full-blown methamphetamine and heroin problem that seems to be ignored, and homeless that are harassed, and yet they focus on cigarette and tobacco stings. The town of Santa Margarita is less than one square mile, and we have eight places that sell alcohol, yet they do not allow one marijuana dispensary in the county of San Luis Obispo.

We need another liquor store or tavern like we need another panga boat showing up on our coastline.
