Re: “Out for justice

Nice try, Shred, trying to blame the Megan's Organic "Market" grow citation on oh, so, big, bad, county enforcement. Responsibility for the bootleg structure is squarely on the owner, Veley's, lap, including any subsequent issues (such as the grow disqualification). Next time, read the article before pumping up your huff.

Re: “Fight erupts over CalCoastNews name

Often, the actions engaged in after a verdict like this, in an effort to delay, discombobulate or prevent the seizing of assets end up causing the debtor substantially more trouble than the original verdict.

Re: “An opportunity for developers, but what's in it for us?

On another note on "what's in it for us?" I'm not sure why there needs to be anything in it for you or me or any other current homeowner. This is about people who work and want to live in San Luis Obispo, of which I'm sure there are many. However, I'll probably take full advantage of the recreational opportunities that are also being developed as part of this project. So, yes, I guess if you really want to "look at the bigger picture" there may be something in it for you.

Re: “An opportunity for developers, but what's in it for us?

While the questions are valid, you seem to be living in a fairy-tale world where proper planning is actually performed and roads are built before homes so traffic can move seamlessly and everything is wonderful. Sorry, but that's not the way things are done in California. You're right in that it should be part of a long-term plan, which it is because every development of this size requires long-term planning. My recollection is that several different owner's of this property have attempted to develop it multiple times over the last couple of decades, so it isn't as though SLO didn't see it coming. Also, the current developer has already been working on this project for multiple years. SLO actually received the first formal application for the proposed San Luis Ranch Specific Plan project on June 10, 2015 and it was finally approved on June 7th (2 years later) by the Planning Commission. Now the City Council needs to approve it, the property has to be annexed, then it goes back to the City Council. Opportunity, for developers? Maybe, but how would you like to work on a project for several months and years and never receive a paycheck until the first house is sold, which is still another year away? I could be wrong but I believe this property is entitled as "Agricultural" so I guess the owner could just put up some fences and purchase a couple thousand pigs and let them stink up the place.

Re: “Dogs chased mailman prior to deadly Grover Beach attack

Pit-bulls aren't killers because they have the wrong owners,rather they attract the wrong owners because they are killers. Responsible pit-owners is a myth, right from the start aquiring the most dangerous dog and living near children is IRRESPONSIBLE

Re: “Behind the spark

Nicely written story but some facts are missing and wrong. From what I understand, she did NOT LET them access the road thru her property. They were utilizing Batdorf's easement which they have been doing for the past 15 to 20 years. And to my knowledge, these men have never hunted anywhere back there other than Batdorf's property. Also the person in the unregistered jeep was Jesse Arthurs, who accesses the property thru Shetler's locked gates and is known to hunt around that area.

Re: “Cunningham proposes bill to keep pot off school grounds

May work on paper, but needs a serious reality check. If kids want it, they will find it, they don't need a dispensary same as when I was a kid and dispensaries did not exist. Politicians with efforts such as this are not connected with people, just their party. Spend the money on parenting classes for people, not ridiculous regulation we al know is only effective when wearing rose colored glasses.
Stop wasting our tax dollars!

Re: “The 29th annual Live Oak Music festival amazed

We loved our first Live Oak festival! Check out the @liveoakfest Instagram for some fun photos and videos from the weekend. One of the best things about this music festival is its proximity: after all that dance sweat and dirt, you're just over an hour from home if you live in SLO County. Can't wait for next year!

Re: “Rhetoric & Reason: Faith, politics, and the founders

The attempt mentioned in the first paragraph is, properly, only to prevent **governmental** pronouncements and displays of faith. Government must remain neutral in order to represent and respect all citizens and all faiths, as well as those without faith. By characterizing the arena as [any] public pronouncement or display of faith, the writer sets up a straw man, the better to knock it down.

No serious critic attempts to prevent anyone - in their role as a private citizen - to pronounce or display their faith in public. For instance, any citizen can pray to themselves at a city council meeting all they want, and they can offer prayers during public comment, but the city officials - when acting in their role as a city official - must maintain neutrality.

Re: “Meteorologists, do your job

"I cried underwater!" These were the words of a research diver reporting on the death of coral reefs in the island chain northwest of Hawaii. This was just one of many saddening reports at a scientific symposium put on by the Pacific Division of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAASPD) two weeks ago. Coral reefs, huge living structures in all warm oceans, are among the earth's features being destroyed by rising temperatures. The relatively predictable climate patterns that earth has known since the dawn of agriculture and the rise of modern civilization are going away. These climate patterns govern our food supply, the spread of diseases, and the availability of livable space. To say "at least we spoke up" is a pretty weak response. Please give strong support to organizations that are fighting to end the destruction of the earth as we know it in exchange for short-term profit.

Everyone needs to follow the rules. Simple details win the day. If a company can't get it right, then move on. The stakes are too high for these blunders.
