Re: “Gun scares, student threats, and fights roil Paso Robles school community

And the public has never gotten a satisfying explanation about that weird tradition with the Paso high football team where the players pour maple syrup on each other in the locker room and the coach pretends to lick it off.

Re: “Dire consequences

Simply put AR-15s and similar weapons in the same legal category as machine guns and bazookas. Done. Simple. And lives will be saved.

The Second Amendment might be worth preserving, but it should also be followed, requring all these yahoos with military weapons to be part of a "well regulated militia" if they want to play gun dude with military style killing machines. Unfortunately, so many gun nuts don't want anythign to do with being "regulated" and have no true understanding or respect for the Second Amendment as concevied by our leaders of the past.

Re: “Sheriff's Office, jail receive threats in wake of Holland footage release

Why should anyone believe anything Tony Cipolla says or writes? His credibility is shot. Reporters covering the sheriffs office should ignore him and request that someone credible represent the sheriffs office when talking with the media. How are we to know when hes telling the truth or covering it up? We've had enough of Tonys baloney. Doesnt matter how nice a guy Tony is. Nice is not the same as honest or trustworthy. He seems to have lost his way. A sheriffs spokesman should put truth and the publics interest above all else...even when that displeases the boss.

Re: “Social workers, you have our support

What a shame that county supervisor Lynn Compton (good buddies with supervisors Debbie Arnold and John Peschong and an eager if mindless tool for unethical COLAB lobbyists) does not hold the same respect for social work, going out of her way to publicly denigrate social workers, implying they are fools and hypocrites for working at jobs that make it difficult to afford decent housing in San Luis Obispo County. From Comptons perspective, anyone having difficulty affording housing should simply marry someone wealthy or grab a job as a hedge fund manager...or get elected to a seat on the county Board of Supervisors.

Re: “Who's buying Jimmy Paulding?

It looks to me like Jimmy Paulding is scrupulously following all campaign legal requirements. When scrupulously following the law there is nothing wrong with using wise political strategy, good timing and respecting the requests of campaign donors.

It would be helpful if Lynn Compton was more forthcoming about her connections to COLAB lobbyists and their continual efforts to circumvent democracy in our county.

Put Lynn Compton and Jimmy Paulding side-by-side and ask them the hard questions and it is easy to see who is the better candidate.

Compton needs to realize that just because people want to vote her out of office does not mean they want to quote destroy her unquote as she claims. Compton had her chance and failed. Its now time we give the opportunity to someone new who is competent and well-liked.

Re: “Sorry, Lynn Compton: Doesn't work that way

I heard the radio show the letter writer tells us about and I was also appalled by the openly condescending and arrogant attitude freely expressed by Lynn Compton who continually judges a persons value to our community and worthiness for respect by the size of their bank account or land holdings.

Comptons comments were shameful but her attitude was shameless.

Seriously, what good has Compton done for our community? Shes had her chance and has revealed her true colors and her failings, sowing more division,discord and unfairness throughout the county. Our community deserves to give someone else a fresh chance to do the job that she has not been able to do well.
