  • "You make some very good points. Nevertheless, roads need to be maintained under an ever-increasing traffic burden. My guess is that even if the waste and the fraud were to be eliminated, there would still be not enough money to maintain the highway system properly for the future. If funding of a public good should be attached to those who use it, I don't see many other possibilities other than a gas tax, a vehicle tax, or toll roads."

  • "SPLC is not the most credible source for a list of true "hate" groups. Several of those on their list are those that stand for traditional values and do so without vitriol or violence toward anyone. A better caption for their list would be "Groups that Do Not March to Our Liberal Tune.'"

  • "The working poor, who will bear a disproportionate cost of this tax, commute from the outskirts of the county to SLO city and elsewhere to relatively low-paying jobs. They can't afford to live in SLO. They don't just drive around for pleasure, they have to drive to get to work.. Also they tend to drive older, less fuel-efficient cars because that is all they can afford. This tax will also raise the price of food and all other commodities and items shipped on trucks. The more we spend on basics like food, the less money for other things, which will all be more expensive due to the gas tax. Riding a bike is fine but we don't ship stuff that way. In a rural state like California, this is a disaster! Be assured most of this money won't go to roads, and even if it did, it wouldn't come to SLO County. With so many Legislators from LA county and the Bay area, we are low on the priority list."

  • "Health & Safety Code mandates that the board of the sewer district is comprised of the mayors of Grover Beach and Arroyo Grande and the president of the OCSD. Should they be unable or unwilling to serve, their alternate is chosen by the respective council or board. Mayor Hill could choose to step down but no one can relieve him of his position as a director of the SSLOCSD, nor should they. Jim Hill has been the voice in the wilderness calling for reform and standing up to corruption that runs deep and wide beyond just the sewer district."

  • "Alaskari and Boggess placed their daughter in a dangerous situation, being that she was in close proximity to decomposing human remains, a sheriff’s office press release states. --------------- Ya, I doubt that. What danger? Danger of being grossed out? Also, illegal narcotics and paraphernalia were readily accessible to the teen, according to the sheriff’s office. ------------ Now, this I believe."

  • "I can understand being uneasy with this, and that is exactly what was intended by the report. Anyone close to Lin Hill, including the accusers who very well know the truth, but chose to pretend otherwise, knows that Lin Hill does not use a computer and has to ask friends to read reports and newspaper articles to her because she has severe eye problems. It's a shame that this personal health issue has to come out to expose the truth. Even if she could have read the password on the post-it, she wouldn't have been able to use it because she can't use a computer."
