Shame on the Tribune

OPINION by T. KEITH GURNEE Shame on the Tribune for its latest editorial on the Housing Accountability Act. That our own newspaper would defend the State’s top-down, autocratic act to “build baby build” regardless of the consequences couldn’t be more misplaced. We came here for the character of this community, its quaintness, its scale, and […]... (Continue Reading)

What are they doing to our town?

T. Keith Gurnee

OPINION by T. KEITH GURNEE What San Luis Obispo’s current mayor and city council are doing to our city is deeply disturbing, but it is the speed and joy with which they’re doing it is even more so. Let’s just look at the things they’ve been doing: On July 17, the council unanimously approved the […]... (Continue Reading)

Andrew Holland’s legacy

T. Keith Gurnee

OPINION by T. KEITH GURNEE It was heartening to read of the Holland family’s resolve to use a significant portion of the $5 million legal settlement from the County to raise our consciousness about mental illness while grieving over the loss of their son. Their commitment to starting a foundation named for Andrew Holland to […]... (Continue Reading)

Jerry Brown’s misplaced indignation

OPINION by T. KEITH GURNEE Governor Jerry Brown’s incendiary response to Attorney General Jeff Session’s recent Sacramento announcement that he was suing California for violating Federal immigration laws was both entertaining and troubling. And with Trump visit to California, we will see if Jerry further embarrasses himself and those he represents. As an American first […]... (Continue Reading)

The impending demise of the new Progressives

T. Keith Gurnee

OPINION by KEITH GURNEE The stunning rise of the local new Progressive movement looks like it may be matched only by its pending rapid decline. Its cause? An emerging public perception of the movement’s hypocrisy, it’s single-minded ideology, and its self-destructive overconfidence. The previous chapters of the national Progressive movement led to some great things […]... (Continue Reading)

It is too late for Supervisor Adam Hill

T. Keith Gurnee

OPINION by T. KEITH GURNEE The Tribune’s coverage of San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill’s recent obscene outburst against a constituent, and Hill’s reaction that he will be getting help for depression, were both welcome news. For the Tribune—Hill’s primary public enabler—to ask him to get help or resign was remarkable. Hill’s admission that […]... (Continue Reading)

SLO City Council should put residents before the bike riding minority

T. Keith Gurnee

OPINION by T. KEITH GURNEE Open letter to Mayor Heidi Harmon and members of the San Luis Obispo City Council: As long-time residents of what has been one of the nicest neighborhoods in our community—the Anholm neighborhood—we are beseeching you to spare our neighborhood from an action that will diminish the livability and character of […]...

Schumer shot himself in the foot

T. Keith Gurnee

OPINION by T. KEITH GURNEE Having been a Democrat for most of my life, I can’t believe what the Democrats did to themselves last week. In orchestrating a deliberate shutdown of our federal government, Senate Minority Leader Chuck “Shutdown“ Schumer irrevocably harmed the Democratic agenda and, in turn, his own party. Schumer not only shot […]... (Continue Reading)

Supervisors Hill and Gibson dismiss the public

T. Keith Gurnee

OPINION by T. KEITH GURNEE The first San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisor’s meeting on Jan. 9 is now history. The selection of John Peschong as chairman of the board and Debbie Arnold as vice chair is now a fact, despite the Tribune’s advocacy for a troubled Adam Hill as chairman of the board. […]...

Adam Hill needs discipline, not the chairmanship

OPINION by T. KEITH GURNEE An open letter to the San Luis Obispo County of Board of Supervisors: As one of your District 5 constituents, I must express my profound disappointment at the apparent inability of the Board of Supervisors to somehow discipline Supervisor Adam Hill for the abusive and obscene emails he sent me […]...
