Re: “SLO shouldn't eliminate natural gas in new buildings

Who pays for all of this additional "Administrivia" associated with the development and maintenance of these types of programs? Your tax dollars at work? Has anyone ever mentioned the # of FTE (Full-time equivalent) employees required to manage it? Also, isn't someone probably burning something somewhere in order to make the electricity? I guess I don't know enough about it to say "It's a bad idea", but with all of the issues we already have with housing, aren't we just exacerbating them with these types of programs? I have to wonder!

Re: “Clock's ticking: The Hourglass Project takes steps toward a stronger economy for the Central Coast

Let me just say, "good luck" and I think we should all do what we can to help everyone living here not just survive, but thrive. The economic challenges are great and I hope we can make an impact on the direction of this state. It makes absolutely no sense to have the 4th largest economy in the world and at the same time have the highest poverty rate in the nation. Something has to change.

Re: “Chevron pours $4 million into fight against Measure G

All politics aside, do you drive a car that runs on gas or diesel? Do you want to continue driving that car? Then you may want to have gasoline to fuel the engine and oil to lubricate it. How do we get those products......Just saying.

Re: “Emotional road manipulation by our government

If CA would just pay their bills (debt) they wouldn't have to pay $4 BILLION a year in interest, which would go a long way towards repairing our infrastructure. Additionally, what about the $X BILLIONS of dollars they are receiving from the Marijuana Taxes? Where is that money going? Also the MILLIONS of dollars being save because we have released the prisoners who were only in jail because of low-level drug convictions and we don't have to arrest, convict, and jail them anymore. Now that CA has an $8 BILLION surplus, can you give us our money back, please?? I'm with Lucio, #VoteDemsOut in November as they have FAILED us all.

Re: “More stupidity on the way

This is like the 6:00 news where a snippet is picked out of a story to get the storyteller's point across. I guess it's not important that the USA is getting unfair deals by many countries and now someone is actually trying to do something about it vs. just sit on their hands and doing nothing. In the short-term there may be some consolidations but in the long term I hope that we have much better trade deals with all countries, which will help the entire country. I guess time will tell, but to me stupidity is letting the USA get ripped off every day.

Re: “What's up with Caltrans?

The minimal amount of work and energy that has been put into making highway 41 safe over the last 30 years is disturbing. For a state with one of the largest economies in the world it is extremely disappointing to me that CA wastes billions of dollars every year just paying government debt but we can't find the money to fix what has been known as "Blood Alley" for decades. Over the last few years they have made some attempts and it has gotten better, but still much more needed to make the road safe and WHY IS IT TAKING SO LONG?? We all need to hold the state more accountable for their spending on infrastructure and other major functions.
