    It was things like this going on around me that made me decide to move here in 1988. Time to move again? Where?

      So far it’s just natural selection at work. We’ve got time before it’s off to some other boondock.

    People in this county know where to commit a crime without consequences. (sp?) Everyone is so upset about the smoking and plastic bag laws of course they would go to SLO to commit a crime, it’s a safe haven for lawbreakers. Home to the wicked. Oh well, it used to be a nice place to visit. “The happiest city in the world”. Bull.

    If he knew four of the six it shouldn’t be that hard to find the perpetrator.

    I hope this young man is okay and makes a full recovery. Sounds like a group of teens, but knowing SLO, it could be a group of homeless people.
