Re: “Newly passed vaccination laws are pushing one parent to pull her children from school

Forcing anyone into a medical procedure that comes with risk is unacceptable. Forcing a medical procedure onto a child who has already been harmed by said procedure is inhumane. Pharma, government, and doctors are free of liability from vaccine injuries. The government has already spent $$$ and not found a single fraudulent exemption. Doctors will be unable to protect their patients from potential harm, even if they know that harm would be probable. Our rights to body autonomy and medical freedom are being stripped. Many parents will be faced with deciding between homeschooling, moving out of state, or playing Russian roulette with their childrens health and lives. The government overreach must stop!

Re: “Adam Hill gets a challenger in District 3 supervisor election

Stacy is phenomenal - the ultimate communicator, business professional whos personal demeanor is calming and steady. Stacy has been our insurance provider for more than 20 years (maybe even 30) and I have never known her political affiliation. She is a great listener, and the ultimate professional with a non partisan approach. I have seen her moderate political opponents and was completely neutral so I never could tell whether she was a democrat or a republican. Never in a million years would I say she is another ! No doubt, she would bring civility to the table and bring people together, no matter where there are differing political beliefs. She is absolutely the right person for the job!

Re: “Newly passed vaccination laws are pushing one parent to pull her children from school

I find it interesting that the article states there are only 75 children in our county with medical exemptions, out of how many students? I find it hard to believe that our local drs are jeopardizing investigations by the medical board (who can fine them regardless of whether or not they find any wrong doing, which then increases their malpractice insurance, resulting in loss of insurance contracts), to write fraudulent exemptions for profit? How much money would they have to be charging for these 75 fake exemptions in order to justify losing their practice? Every pharmaceutical has side effects. The Vaccine insert lists side effects that are recognized by the FDA. It should be a red flag that the CDC does not recognize contraindications listed by the FDA. Why do we as the readers, public health authorities, journalists, or the legislators for that matter, have the authority to say whether or not a child who has had some of those side effects should be forced to continue vaccinating in order to attend school? I think that should be a risk to benefit analysis that should be done on an individual case basis between the parents and the doctor.

Re: “Newly passed vaccination laws are pushing one parent to pull her children from school

Some things need to be clarified.

1. This bill doesn't eliminate medical exemptions. It's to prevent unethical doctors from writing bogus exemptions. If doctors believe these children should not be vaccinated, then they'll write an exemption.

2. The vaccine inserts are legal documents. All are available online. Any reader should be very careful not to confuse vaccine reactions with "adverse events", which often list things that were observed during clinical trials but are unrelated to vaccination.

3. The opposition to sb276 was organized by dishonest anti-vaccine activists, including professional fraudsters and scam artists. Anyone who supports known frauds like the producers "vaxxed" shouldn't pretend they aren't anti-vaccine.

Re: “Newly passed vaccination laws are pushing one parent to pull her children from school

Ian... do you know this mom? I dont think so. To say shes overreacting is ridiculous. You have no idea if her kids are hurt by vaccinations. Her compassion is for a reason. This isnt about parents for or against. Its about doing the right thing. Having medical freedom and for actual parents who have kids that have been hurt by vaccinations. Your kinda missing the idea and sound like an idiot.

Re: “Newly passed vaccination laws are pushing one parent to pull her children from school

I cant believe this passed. Such a sad and disappointing time for California. Being forced into a medical procedure repeatedly that is potentially dangerous made from a liability free product is NOT OKAY! This decision is an informed decision between a patient and their doctor!

Re: “Power pivot: Community Choice Energy arrives on the Central Coast

This whole setup makes me feel good and thats about it. I still get the power from PGE. All I am doing is paying another company to have a portfolio of green energy producers. I choose to produce my own green energy and offset my own power consumption on my property.

Re: “Newly passed vaccination laws are pushing one parent to pull her children from school

Ian,
So glad you brought up the $4 billion medical malpractice industry because it is so important to understand that It is completely irrelevant when talking about childhood vaccines as doctors can not be sued for giving vaccines that harm people. Likewise, for profit Pharmaceutical companies who make the childhood vaccines can also not be sued for harm or death caused by these products. So now we have a situation where govt is mandating drugs manufactured and sold by convicted felons (ie Merck, Glaxo Smith..) that have no liability and no accountability for safety. Children and families shoulder all of the risk yet are being denied choice and informed consent.

Re: “What's really killing plovers

Neither Sierra Club, nor CBD, offers any proof the birds weren't already dead. It's pure salacious speculation and hyperbole. Even so, Oceano Dunes produces more fledged birds than any other Recovery Unit on the west coast. And it's ONLY because OHV presence that the dollars are available for such astounding success. The Club has always managed to find and focus on a single turd in a a valley of gold.

Re: “Newly passed vaccination laws are pushing one parent to pull her children from school

Nicole,

Why spend the effort? Oh, you know, to save lives. They spent the time and effort because they want to help the kids who are actually unable to get vaccines. Remember the whole "herd immunity" thing. Second, this bill is aimed at the exemptions, not the doctors. This bill is designed to give the people in charge of public health a seat at the table. Public health officials, like school nurses, now have a mechanism to question exemptions. Where before, it was solely between the doctor and patient, but that trust was broken, when some unscrupulous doctors started giving exemptions for money. And if you think that any doctor is not liable for prescribing medicine that can harm you, you must have forgotten about the $4 billion medical malpractice industry.

Julie,

Seriously? It's in the news paper. Sorry I overstepped by commenting, here in the comment section. Furthermore, I did not comment on the children's medical care. Only that when she's saying that she is unwilling to even request an exemption from the doctor, and instead will go straight to pulling her kids out of public school, that is over-reacting.

Re: “What's really killing plovers

For Mr. Tanner's edification:

"In March 2016 one snowy plover was found dead in tire tracks and another was found crushed in the riding area, on October 10, 2016, a snowy plover was found dead in a vehicle track, on November 1, 2016, a snowy plover was found dead in a vehicle track, and 2 additional snowy plover were found dead in vehicle tracks later in November 2016."

Re: “Newly passed vaccination laws are pushing one parent to pull her children from school

Ian - I am not sure its your place to judge whether or not this mother is overreacting. I think its fair to assume that she knows her kids better and cares about them more than you do. Maybe now is a good time for you to start minding your own business.

Re: “Newly passed vaccination laws are pushing one parent to pull her children from school

SB276 will revoke valid medical exemptions. The CDC contraindications to vaccination don't even include seizures or paralysis, some of the most serious side-effects listed on vaccine package inserts. That means that doctors wont be allowed to protect patients who have already had seizures after vaccines by exempting them from further vaccines. The standard of care wont protect these cases.

Re: “Newly passed vaccination laws are pushing one parent to pull her children from school

Ian Tanner - why spend so much time, effort and money making this law to just review doctors? The CA Medical Board already has the authority to do so. All exemptions will be found faulty if they do not conform to the very narrow requirements set in the bill - such as if someone almost died from a vaccine. And then they will only be exempt from that particular vaccine. This bill will harm medically fragile children and since neither the Pharmaceutical corps, the doctors, the Politicians or the State will be liable when a child is hurt, parents and kids are just SOL.

Re: “Database error leads to warrantless police search and arrests

Based on a tip from Morro Bay police, SLO police officers searched the home of Cheyne Orndoff, 33, believing he was on probation, subject to searches without probable cause, and possibly in possession of Cantrell's weapon. Sounds more like the SLOPD needed to a little retribution on an innocent person, pretty much sums up what's going on behind closed doors at the PD's offices.

Hill added that there is "no time for novices, certainly no time for a fourth Trump Republican on our Board of Supervisors." This guy is a real charmer, what a joke. I guess all across America Trump has failed in every category making for a robust economy and GDP.

Re: “SLO building code on hold after council member accused of conflict

"Because Ms. Pease is a professional who specializes in clean-energy consulting, and because she is also a highly placed insider in the city's political and administrative structure, the new Clean Energy rules will drive a great deal of business to her architectural firm," talk about a conflict of interest. Just another opportunist seeking a way to line her pockets, she knows that going all electric vs the choice of using natural gas is ridiculous of promoting a climate change for the better. She had no business voting for this measure and she knew it.

Re: “Newly passed vaccination laws are pushing one parent to pull her children from school

Tina,

1. If a doctor writes more than 4 exemptions, it's the exemptions that can be reviewed, not the doctor. Not all exemptions from a doctor that writes more than 4 must be reviewed, but if someone like a school nurse asks, they can be reviewed.

2. If the exemption is legit, the review should agree.

3. The existing medical exemptions that do come under review, can be revoked only if they are found faulty, the rest will remain.

These new rules are designed to combat doctors who were giving exemptions fraudulently, for money.

Re: “Power pivot: Community Choice Energy arrives on the Central Coast

"I think it's a safe bet," said Mike Cordero, a Santa Maria City Council member. "The cost of power goes down, and we won't be using any fossil fuel energy." I'd like to see that report, tell me Mike how you came up with that equation power costing less being reduced more BS from all these climate trolls thinking that by eliminating natural resources like natural gas as a viable source and going all electric is going to resolve the issues. Tell me how they will produce more electricity without the use of a power source like Diablo Canyon, they'll have to replace it with more natural gas turbines, windmills have already shown not to be able to meet the demands as once promised. Imagine when the power grids fail from overloading think we have a crisis now during a temporary outage, what a joke.

Re: “Octagon Barn reopens at nexus of bike path expansion

I am 65 years old, I was diagnosed of Parkinsons disease at the age of 59. I had severe calf pain, muscle pain, slurred speech, frequent falls, loss of balance, difficulty getting up from sitting position. I was placed on Sinemet 3 times daily, it helped me but not very much. My neurologist advised me to try natural treatments and introduced me to Rich Herbal Garden Parkinsons Disease Herbal formula, I read alot of positive reviews from other patients who used the treatment and i immediately started on the treatment. I had great improvement and relief with this treatment, total decline of symptoms. Great improvement with speech, co-ordination, balance, muscle, mood etc, I gained back my life with this treatment and can never be thankful enough.
