Panga Boat Bust 9/6

Weekly Poll
Are you comfortable with prayer in public meetings?

Yes, atheists have too much control over what's allowed.
No, keep church and state separate.
Let anyone from any religion pray in public and that will make it fair.
I'm more uncomfortable with the fact that local politicians think they need divine assistance.

No, we don't need more alcohol

Santa Margarita

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.
