Re: “Cal Poly showcases local poet Michael Hannon in Pilgrim's Process

I am proud to call this man my Brother-in-law. He maybe doesn't know it, but much of his work has inspired me and given this old woodworking Norwegian direction.

Re: “Pismo revokes Alex Bar-B-Q project coastal development permit

Its a shame it was torn down. City of Pismo is doing the right thing. I would hate to be that contractor right now.

Re: “Pismo revokes Alex Bar-B-Q project coastal development permit

I'm confused. I'm pretty sure that Pismo Beach had to know that Compass Health isn't in the restaurant business. In order for a healthcare facility to be built at that site, in compliance with current California Building Code, it would need to be rebuilt from the ground up. That being said, there seems to have been a lack of honest forthcoming or intentional miscommunication between the Planning Commission and the contractor/Compass Health.

But the biggest loser here is residents of Shell Beach/Pismo Beach. How long are they going to have to look at that demolished ugliness before someone wins the pissing contest going on between the city and Compass Health? Squash it, find a way for Compass Health to make a "generous contribution" to the community's quality of life, and have everyone get on with their lives.

Nicely written. Encapsulates the news very well, and that's not a word you see every day.

Re: “Enough is enough!

I knew a woman once who was driving drunk and ran into a tree. In the hospital she seriously talked about cutting down the tree. It was the trees' fault.....These fires are increasing not just in California. Don't you remember British Columbia being ablaze just months ago? A million and a half acres this year......
Forty years ago Dr James Hanson (NASA's Goddard Institute) testified before congress that climate change will be our future unless we move to clean energy. That we can expect increased droughts and fires. Forty years ago the US Forest Service's budget for fire suppression was 17% of its budget. It is now over 60% and rising. This is not a coincidence. If you want to blame, please blame the cause, Global Warming. Its caused by us, and there are solutions. Cutting down forests are part of the problem not the solution.

Re: “The 'disgruntled' will not rest

In her otherwise laudable letter, I remind Ms. Czech that much of the anti-Harmon resentment was directed at the mayor's requirement to implement earlier building plans that previous SLO City administrations had earlier approved. In other words, and in legal terms, there was/is no going back on mandated construction.

Re: “Enough is enough!

OMG, now it's "environmentalists" who are responsible for wildfires in the National Forests??? Not global warming fueled by Big Fossil? Not profit crazy PG&E transmission lines snapping in the breeze and igniting fossil baked brush and timber? Not stupid local zoning laws that allow development in the middle of dangerous wildfire zones? Not Federal policies that have suppressed controlled burns nor the firefighting lobby that makes millions contracting its services?

Ex-probation officer Harmon sounds like she needs a bit more environmental education to get the objective facts. So much easier to scapegoat those enviro socialists.

Re: “Cambria landowners file petition and complaint against SLO County, CCSD

My husband and I have owned a lot since 2001. We would like to join this petition too. The situation in Cambria clearly constitutes A Regulatory Taking and most of the lot owners are paying taxes without representation. This has gone too far for too long. The moratorium was supposed to be temporary. It seems to me that 17 years is not temporary. There is no emergency for water and since the desalination plant was installed and has proven to function well, there should be no water moratorium. Property owners should be allowed to build and this grotesque property rights violation should be put to rest once and for all. The town of Cambria is in sorry need of vitality and new blood. The Cambria Community Service District needs money. This would be a win-win for all. Please reach out to me at joan@re-pro.com.

Re: “Those were the days: Cayucos in the '60s

I lived in Cayucos as a child while my father was on maneuvers. Went to a three room schoolhouse where my sister was the entire fourth grade. My teacher was Mrs. Manedi. The principal regularly spanked a naughty girl named Barbara Ferreri. When Pearl Harbor was bombed my father was immediately sent to the Hawaii (code name Plum). Mother,sister and I made a hasty retreat to the safety of Salt Lake City, leaving all our belongings behind except for two guinea pigs that proved to be a hit on the over crowded train. It was their contribution to the War effort. I was seven years old. December 7 is coming up. Remember Pearl Harbor!

Re: “DA declines to charge former Paso police officer accused of sexual assault

Consensual sex leaves the same evidence behind as forcible sex. Proving rape in these circumstances becomes simply a matter of the complaining witness' ability to convince a jury (beyond a reasonable doubt) that forcible sex occurred, because any evidence can be reasonably explained away as evidence of sex, but NOT as evidence of a rape. In these cases, the credibility of the witness becomes paramount, and the trial is often as traumatic as the crime that required it -- especially if the complainant does not convince the jury.
A prosecutor will have amassed reams of information about the specifics of any case that will not be available to a commenting public. That is why we won't always understand a given decision, and why we must, ultimately, elect prosecutors who can be trusted.
We have achieved that here in Mr. Dow. We should all realize that our assessments are performed with the assistance of incomplete information, while the DA's office has total information.
Additionally, a rush to trial with a shaky case will eliminate the chance to try the accused should further evidence develop.
I, for one, am in favor of Mr. Dow's fiscal responsibility in passing on this case, even knowing there would be a flap. He could have just as easily brought the case and wasted a grip of time and money on a losing case in the name of political expediency.

Re: “ALS hasn't stopped Devin Ward from contributing towards a cure

I was diagnosed with ALS in May 2008. our doctor put me on riluzole, letting me know there was no cure but the medication might provide me a few more months of delayed symptoms. ALS progresses at different rates and affects different body parts first. me being 62 at the time, fell into a category of what they call "fast progression" (older female). My arms weakened first, then my hands, my mouth, and throat, and finally mylungs. Throughout my two-and-a-half-year ordeal, Iwas able to walk with assistance until I was told to usetotalcureherbsfoundation.com herbal formula which helps me get rid of this ALS totally after using it for just 15 weeks treatment plan. The total cure herbal foundation brought me back to life again and terminate all the symptoms.I have a great doctor and a team of wonderful people working at foundation Most of all, my husband!

Re: “Cunningham wins second term in state Assembly

So Cunningham paid $13.18 for each vote, while Ostrander spent just $2.90 per vote. Good thing all the corps gave Cunningham so much money. Wonder who he'll be beholden to. Ostrander didn't take money from the corps. He would have been a far better choice. Not least of which because Cunningham is in favor of trophy hunting. Nothing makes that OK.
