Re: “Atascadero denies warming shelter at Armory

Hey M.G.

I see you're courageous enough to post your Trumpian opinion with your name well hidden from the community. It appears the only thing more yellow than your Fox News journalism is your SPINE. If you're brave enough to express your bigotry, why aren't you brave enough to use your real name?

I notice you managed to insert a God reference in there... do you think Jesus would agree with your hatred of poor people?

Tax generating venues are in great demand for stale small town cities here on the central coast.

Re: “ICE arrested 20-year-old DACA 'dreamer' outside of SLO County Jail, family claims

Shielding an illegal alien from detection by ICE is a felony punishable by up to 5 years for each shielded alien under 8 USC 1324(a). Planning with another person to shield an illegal alien from detection constitutes conspiracy and is punishable by up to 10 years. California law cannot override federal immigration law. Do here's a great idea for illegal aliens to reduce the likelihood of detection and deportation: Don't commit crimes.

Re: “ICE arrested 20-year-old DACA 'dreamer' outside of SLO County Jail, family claims

Why was he arrested in the first place? Another example of stupid writers from the New Times not having the brains or are simply hiding the Facts. To give simple information to the reader like "WHY WAS HE IN JAIL IN THE FIRST PLACE" might provide context to the "reader"! Your Bias and foolish publication deserves to be ignored and please stop buying advertising from this ridiculous publication, supporting it just shows me how shallow the advertisers here are. Take note readers, they think your morons! I will attempt to avoid buying anything from these advertisers until such time as they tell the "WHOLE" story!

Re: “Addiction treatment advocates worry about the impact of SLO County strike on Drug and Alcohol Services

When the service we are providing, is similar to that of a Utility, we should not allow those working for us, to strike.
What a bummer, this dept. took an active part, instead of a supportive part in the strike. This service is needed daily.

Re: “SLO County strikers demand better pay, flood supervisors meeting

Until the County workers, and management gets paid, what the private sector gets paid... everyone will always want more money. Why not retire on your neighbors taxed wages?
Downgrade the county salaries to the public sector average salaries.
That would be financially be amazing.... how many roads we could fix, and less demand for public taxes.
More private sector folks could afford houses, instead of just the county employees.

Re: “Fatal accident spurs study of potential closure of El Campo Road intersection

For those who want to support putting in a safe crossing - here is the petition - http://chng.it/Fsy6b7Pd2d

Re: “Fatal accident spurs study of potential closure of El Campo Road intersection

El campo is a mayor part of our system of roads in south county and a significant emergency route for fire and other evacuation routes. The solution outlined in the 2000 study and subsequent studies indicated that the best soulution is a proper 2 lane overpass 1/4 mile to the south of the existing crossing that will support a safe northbound and southbound route. Any effort to close or partially close the current crossing would impose additional congestion and safety issues around the AG Highschool, AG Community Hospital, Los Berros Road, Halcyon Road, Valley Road, Traffic Way, Grand Ave, and the already overburdened 101 exchanges at Grand, Fair Oaks, and Brisco.

It needs to be fixed properly with a safe interchange.

Re: “SLO County strikers demand better pay, flood supervisors meeting

Hello SLO County Supervisors?!! If you think this kind of inequity is going to fly in these times, well, good luck with that. To get an idea of which direction the wind is blowing, take a look at what's happening in France right now with the yellow vests movement. They started out with modest, fair demands that were met with disdain by the government, and now the genie is out of the bottle and the people will no longer be placated by some token concessions. You think this is a localized issue and that the people don't see what's going on?! Think again...long and hard. We working people, everywhere, are tired of politicians lining their pockets, padding their paychecks and feathering their nests at our expense. Through the global communications media we all know what's happening all over the world, in real time, and we all see that the game is increasingly being rigged by those who we have entrusted to run it. It's time for you, SLO County Supervisors, and other politicians to start playing fair or lose it all. At a certain point even honest, hard working people will take to the streets and stop carrying you on our backs. If you had a minimum of integrity you would rescind your own salary increases, or at least reduce them to the 0.5% you seem to think appropriate, and raise the county workers' salaries by the amount you had raised your own pay, or at least to be comparable with other agencies. Shame on you! We are ALL watching and we are no longer going to be silent and passive. You might as well do the right thing, because we, the workers, people who actually get things done in this country, are going to start enforcing a policy of "Play fair or pay the price". Caveat imperium!

Re: “SLO County strikers demand better pay, flood supervisors meeting

The cost of living in San Luis Obispo County is accelerating at a rate that is driving county employees and the service industry out of the area. It is a beautiful place to live, now.

If the county wages are failing to keep pace with the cost of living here, then the beauty of this area will suffer. Rents are in excess of what it causes to own a home, but most county employees dont make the income necessary to finance a median value home in this market.

Ask the County what their succession plan is and many departments will indicate they are shifting to telecommuting where county employees dont live here, but work from home.

What does that say about our county future?

Yes, we live two miles from US 101 and three miles from Walmart, but internet-wise you'd think we were in the hinterlands of Alaska. Thank goodness for Peak WiFi. And now you know why Elon Musk has begun to launch a global broadband flock of 7.500 satellites.

Re: “Fatal accident spurs study of potential closure of El Campo Road intersection

The median should be closed. Right-hand-merging lane for south-bound El Campo traffic. Not rocket science. It's a miracle more fatalities haven't occurred here, as the typical speed seems to have increased over the years. It's now often 70-75MPH along this stretch, from my experience.

Re: “ICE arrested 20-year-old DACA 'dreamer' outside of SLO County Jail, family claims

Although the article said his crme was a misdemeanor, a three month sentence indicates that it was a significant crime. And, it was surely pled down from something worse. Would have given more context, if exact crime was reported. Public might have less sympathy then.
