Weekly Poll
Do you support the SLO County Board of Supervisors electing John Peschong as chair over Adam Hill?

Yes, the new conservative majority has a right to flex its muscle.
No, the board broke a nonpartisan tradition of rotating the chair, and Hill was next in line.
It doesn't matter—the liberals are screwed either way.
I've stopped following this circus years ago.

Just despicable, Hodin

Santa Margarita

By Don Lampson

I think Hodin’s cartoon of April 25 was despicable, and he owes Mike Cole’s truck drivers an apology! His cartoon implied a Las Pilitas gravel truck operator would brag about accident victims, with symbols on their rigs like some World War II fighter ace!
He made the truckers out as some kind of fiends! I’m certain that safety is on their minds at all times, and know they’d never boast of an accident!
I am firmly opposed to that strip mine—but I sure don’t blame the truck drivers any, and don’t think Hodin should either!
