Re: “SLO police chief disciplined after leaving gun in restaurant

This is the Chief. The top of the department. The buckstops here person. Surely not adequately responsible for the postion she holds?

Re: “Paso says Salinas Riverbed is a public safety emergency

People like Lisa really make me sick to my stomach! This may seem blunt and uncuth to some, but how dare you say something like that! Have you ever wondered when you're going to get your next meal?! Where you were sleeping that night, Or not been allowed in some places because you're mentally unstable, and truly felt bad about yourself because you couldn't control those outbursts?! I think not! Ever wonder why there's so many suicides? I personally think that since people like Lisa obviously have funds to live comfortably, happily ever after, blah blah blah, then they should try and cut back on their special vacations and cruise ship trips or whatever it is that they spend their extra cash on and maybe contribute to the city to start a program that will help get these people the help they need to get off of the streets, off the drugs etc... I realize there are resources to help them already, but the funds aren't great enough because the folks who want to run their mouth about the fact that they exist are too snubby to help! And trust me I get that your extra cash may be hard earned money, maybe not either way that's not my business! but think about this, Has anyone ever walked into an establishment for a job application and been shot down because of your appearance or your background? Chances are, not many! I've had a drug adiction problem in the past, I've been homeless, and hungry, and I've been shot down from potential jobs due to my past and appearance! I am one person who has been through all of that, but luckily for me, I had a few great friends and family members who WERE WILLING to help me get through the dark hallway and push me up the hill that I couldn't make to the top on my own! I now am a proud mother of a healthy, happy, 3 almost 4 year old boy, an in home caregiver, bill and taxpayer, voter, etc. I still drown in bills and am stressed out 85% of the time about it, mind you I only make $13/hour but hey, I may be barely making it by, but I still do what I can to help better the community rather than complain about it on the internet! Ever heard the saying "don't judge a book by its cover" or "walk a mile in someone else's shoes" ??? I highly encourage you to stop and really think about what you're saying and think to yourself how you would feel if you were one of them! Stay humble people! Have a nice day!

Re: “Los Osos approves new GM

Karen Garcia, I called you after your last story to correct you on the false assertion that the district has anything to do with the wastewater project. It was false then, it's still false. The wastewater facility belongs to the County of SLO, the district doesn't manage it or have ny "hurdles" to overcome associated with it.

The district is primarily a water company (they contract with Cal Fire, and perform some lighting and drainage functions) for half the community. It has failing infrustructure and management responsibilities associated with the court ordered adjudicated basin. Implementation of the the projects associated with the Basin Management Plan are costly and controversial.

Their financial health has always been a concern as previous General Managers have had weak accounting skills.

I'm pleased they have chosen Mr. Munds to tackle the issues at hand.

Re: “Paso says Salinas Riverbed is a public safety emergency

For those that say they want government to do something about the homeless crisis, what have you brought to the table? Have you attended city council meetings, build or sign petitions? Are you willing to pay more taxes? Nothing is government funded! It's all tax payer funded. Try starting a petition for rent control, it's not easy because I tried in the 80's, but with more effort and the current crisis, you might get somewhere. Maybe go after the drug dealers with harsher punishment so they will be less likely to deal in your state. Vote, attend council meetings, write your Congress, Govenor. You do something and make your government work for you, as this is what was intended. Cali is a shithole because of it's so called leaders! Hold them accountable! We are in a recall effort to get our governor out before we end up like California. Rant over

Re: “Dunes, dust, drama: Coastal Commission votes against proposed limits to vehicle riding in Oceano Dunes

Actually, six deaths this year. As the article notes, there was one of the very day this agenda item was being heard at the Coastal Commission meeting, and two days later, another death occurred. State Parks needs to address this, and the sooner, the better!

Re: “Paso says Salinas Riverbed is a public safety emergency

Just don't tell the homeless go to residential areas just out of city limits!! Our neighborhood has spent months dealing with those evicted from the River Lodge and RVs parked adjacent. They claim Paso PD pointed them our way! Now we have vagrants with dogs camping and fouling the land and over-running the home of an elderly, mentally unstable single woman. The Sheriffs have helped but we can't get Paso PD to handle crimes from within city limits.
Paso has failed to deal with panhandling, vagrants with animals off leash and RV's being used as homes so now it's become a bigger problem for the larger area.

Re: “Paso says Salinas Riverbed is a public safety emergency

Well, that's an interesting way to solve homelessness; make the world more unattractive. Sheesh, if you voted for this guy, what are you thinking about him today?

Re: “Paso says Salinas Riverbed is a public safety emergency

This councilman thinks the solution is to make the riverbed a more unattractive place to live? It's time for the state or federal government to step in to fix the housing crisis--local government has completely dropped the ball.

Re: “SLO police chief disciplined after leaving gun in restaurant

If a civilian had done the same thing, wouldn't the punishment have been more severe?

Re: “Unlivable: Tenants loudly demand habitable living in their North County apartment complex

If there were more housing available in the community in the first place it would be easier for tenants to avoid substandard dumps like Grand View.

Re: “Show it off: A little body positivity goes a long way

Stephanie what rights are you fighting for? You have the right to get married, no one is denying you a job because ur gay with weird colored hair, no one is denying you housing because ur gay. How are you oppressed? If you think being surrounded by 'breeders' is oppressive then maybe you should move to SF or LA. This USED to be a conservative christian cow town and by golly most people that live here and that have deep roots here like it that way. Its not that I am against gays or think they shouldnt be happy or have rights I am honestly just sick of you people complaining when you having nothing to complain about. Movies and tv ALL have gay characters, HUGE media and clothing companies are aimed to sell you rainbow flag goods. Its amazing to me that you people think you need safe spaces when the entire first world is catering to your every whim. Last of all the name 'Juicy Cunt whore' is not an acceptable name for an adult to be using around kids. What are you going to be pushing next Stephanie?Pedophilia? Because a grown man in tights hanging out with a bunch of impressionable young teens seems like the set up for 'How to catch a predator'. I just want to keep our children safe Stephanie. I'm praying for you.

Re: “Atascadero, SLO County won't join Monterey Bay Community Power

I was at the Atascadero City Council meeting about this, both of them, and it was clear that the conservative majority was not interested in being leaders and letting their voters decide what they wanted, but rather were rulers that tell the voters what they want to do. Leaders vs Rulers, big difference. If they actually wanted answers to their questions, they could have agendized the issue and directed staff to report back on their questions. But no, they know better than staff and the voters, and wouldn't even consider this. It seems the Board of Supervisors had a similar situation.
Elections are coming, voters of Atascadero and County of SLO, remember who decided that YOU dont get to decide.
