Re: “Not the happiest place

Too true!
What happened to the green waste to energy project? I did find a use for the little green bucket. It holds the apples that fall off my tree til I take them to my friend with chickens.
Denmark burn so much trash to produce energy they are now buying trash from Germany and England. Better idea than the green waste since it uses all waste.
What about recycling paper? Paper is a huge problem and can be reused as wall board and other products thereby saving our trees. Hemp is also a good source of paper and wood for building.
Have our leaders a clue at all? Seems not or we would be growing and using Hemp and recycling paper as well as turning trash into power.

Re: “Paso approves its intention to change voting procedures

Where are these residents?
Is it actually possible to design a district so that each 'race' has a shot at serving on the city's governing board?
Does anyone still believe any and all candidates cannot appeal to the whole of the community?

Re: “Public, SLO City Council to workshop rental inspection program

I was not looking at the date. I'll get used to the New Times methods eventually. I thought I was reading this week, not last years issue.

Re: “Public, SLO City Council to workshop rental inspection program

Feb 16? 2019? Nearly 6 months from now?
How many resident will forget this by then?

Re: “Millions pour into the 24th District Congressional race while candidates take aim at each other's donations

3.1 Million? For a first run for Congress?
Over 2 million for reelection?
Does that count as buying votes?
I think it does if the votes in June reflect the amount of money spent by the three candidates.

Election Date: 6/5/2018 Term Length:2 Years
Candidate Party Votes Percent of Vote
Salud Carbajal Democrat 67,748 53.33%
Justin Fareed Republican 46,574 36.66%
Michael Woody Republican 12,719 10.01%
Data from Associated Press

How important is it to the Democrats and Republicans to win this seat in Congress? Apparently millions!

Too bad Top Two does not let other candidates appear on the Nov ballot. Some voters might prefer to say No to the top two and the candidates out to buy their votes.

Re: “Debbie Arnold took the wrong stance on the opioid lawsuit

Excuse me? Since when are we excused from misuse of medications?
Not only do all opioids require a triplicate prescription from an MD, those Rxs are filled by local licensed pharmacists. Both the MD and the pharmacist spell out the proper use and remind individuals to follow usage recommendations precisely.
How do drug manufacturers sell directly to consumers? They do not, they sell to MDs who should be able understand the danger of addiction.
Any adult who thinks opioids are risk free, lives in a sheltered cocoon with no contact with the rest of us at all.

Re: “Frack the rock?!?

Why are MDs denying prescriptions? Because the feds keep saying,"We think you are writing too many of those narcotic prescriptions, so you better curb it".
Without a legal prescription, of course people in pain look for relief other ways. If homeopathic methods don't work, they turn to street drugs. Why not, they are often less expensive?
