Re: “Paso Robles and Grover Beach create different short-term rental ordinances for their communities

Changing the zoning for selective properties to a commercial use in residential neighborhoods is an out rage. Cayucos and Cambria have fallen victim to what should be illegal activity and are turning into total tourist traps. This is all due to greedy owners trying to make an extra buck with property they dont even live in with 4-5 property managers leading the charge. It sounds like the people in Paso at least have half a brain and want to STOP this in the downtown areas and LIMIT the total with some restrictions that are actually going to be an enforced fully. Keep in mind that no one in Cayucos or Cambria has EVER lost their rental license, no matter what the outrage.

Re: “Money mails

The only assessor Ive ever heard of that had no licensing whatsoever when elected, just name recognition. Didnt have any kind of appraisers license or formal appraisal training as well as no training or licensing in the field of tax consulting or even tax preparation.Then he spends little time in the office and is re-elected to the quarter million dollar a year job. Only in SLO county.

Re: “Cunningham, Ostrander face off at New Times forum

Sounds like Cunningham is hedging every bet he can. I also wonder whos paying for all the mailers in the cold calls on behalf of Cunningham. Just seems a bit desperate.

Re: “Fish out of water: A fishermen's-eye view of the local commercial fishing industry

What a great article. I remember when the hardened environmentalists decided that the sea otter around the central coast were actually a different species then those found in Washington and Alaska where are you find them by the thousands. The otters had an extra stripe down there back so they were able to call them a new and potentially extinct species. Otthers are very territorial so fishing & game decided that they need to be moved south. I asked a young lady other day how she thought they were able to transfer the is otters down to the Santa Barbara islands.? I ask her if she thought they just swim up to the boat and hopped on? Actually, they terrorized those little animals chasing them in the skiffs sometimes for days and then when theyre completely exhausted, they put them in a dark fish holed and haul them 150 miles away to another world Of course many of them died, but you never read about that. Just saying.....

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

Never built hot rods all by myself. Owned a number of them when I was younger.

Re: “More of the same

Love your kick ass style, always read you, but you got the vacation rental deal in Cayucos wrong. You might take a look at my letter to the editor in last Mondays TT. I also sent a copy to the New Times. You might want to read it.

Re: “The real problem

So, a couple of activists from Los Osos want to pave the way for yet more weekly vacation rentals in Cayucos.They are squandering your state tax dollars to accomplish their goals.
To invent that Bruce Gibson voted against the further expansion of the weekly rentals in Cayucos because he lives 8 blocks from a proposed new one, is laughable. That is like saying supervisors should not vote on anything that has to do with roads repairs, because they live near one.
They want to kick open the door and further compound the problem. The ordinance as it already stands, allows for a small commercial motel in every residential block of Cayucos. Its wrong, but they want even more.
I have lived two blocks from downtown Cayucos for the last 68 years and can tell you that these motels in every residential block of town has done more to destroy the character of Cayucos than anything I have ever witnessed. They do not understand how most full-time residents want to see the ordinance completely re-written with strictly enforced provisions. If your license is revoked, it gone forever with a freeze on new licenses. Problem unscrambled.
