Re: “Vote for the climate

I am sure home buyers in California will be happy to have $8,000 to $10,000 added to the cost of all new homes since that will make the cost of a home they wish to sell go all the higher. That is good news for those leaving California to buy a larger home at lower cost in some other state. Often leaving family behind.
Adding that 8 to 10 thousand is a minor part of the costs when you are paying nearly half a million anyway.
Problem is, how many can afford to live here at all.
What will happen when no one but rich retirees live here? Who will provide the services they need? What will those services cost? How many more will be driven out of California?

Re: “County keeping independent jail assessment under wraps

How about putting fewer people in jail?

I really would like to know how many prisoners in our jail truly need to be there for the safety of others.

Re: “We need a new 4th District county supervisor

it is not about who is elected Supervisor.
It is about what the residents demand and do with the cooperation of the business owners.
Do it instead of asking that it be done.
if it is to be, it is up to thee.

As for the election - I will be voting NOTA [None of the Above] because there is no candidate for any local office that does not support something or oppose something against the welfare of our communities.

Re: “Oceano deserves better

I agree that neglecting Oceano is wrong and needs to end.
The solution is for Oceano residents to gather together for action.
Whatever is needed can be done if the residents act together.
Is the Community Center being used? Can meetings be held there?
Is the CSD televised? Can speakers get the word out via those mtgs?
Can homemade signs help bring residents to mtgs?
Will business owners join residents to improve Oceano?
Build a Improve Oceano Committee to work on bringing change to oceano!

Re: “Compton and Paulding exchange shots in supervisor debate

Posted on facebook pages - SLOLP and LP of San Luis Obispo today:

I asked the vital question and here is the answer:

"Gail I can speak to to my experience with Lyn[n Compton, 4th District Supervisor].
"I am a legal cannabis farmer but have been told by numerous people that she won't allow me to move forward with final approval for licensing.
"I have been farming here on my own 10 acre agricultural piece of land since 1997.
"I know of other farms that she has made up her mind on as well, we are all farmers in her district.
We will all be shut out from getting our county license and have to fold our farms if she wins."

Sorry, Lynn. You won't get my vote this year or nay other until you open your mind to cannabis.
It is wrong to shut down legal operations in order to control in ways that end up turning cannabis farming to high dollar operations by shutting down the little guys currently farming in our county.

Vote for candidates who understand the value of many small operations instead of a few big operations that end up being corporate controlled.

Re: “All lying liars must resign!

I fail to see the reasoning behind sending a mentally ill individual to jail rather than home with family.
What was his CRIME to justify confinement in the first place?
Why his family not permitted to take the 'prisoner' home?
No bail?
Why not?
How serious was his crime?
Was he a clear and present danger to the entire community?

Why does the average individual know more about how such mentally ill individuals react to confinement than the individuals managing such confinement?
How isolated from reality are the enforcers so that erratic behavior becomes a joking matter?

What is the thinking of both law enforcement and our Judges that says, "Lock them up, restrain them and worry about it later"?

Disgraceful, until a lasting solution can be found, let's stop making prisoners of the mentally ill. I don't mean a few beds costing millions and tightly regulated, I mean mini individual shelters using vacant land with mobile toilets, showers and laundry services. Meals, counseling and health care as well . We can afford to provide basic service is we think affordable and flexible.

Re: “A cascade of failure

Teens need to hear the importance of respecting and accepting others and be known for their friendliness. If no one is 'left out', ignored, 'disssed' [disrespected], or otherwise marginalized, frustration and anger ot or to lead to violence.
