  • "I am appalled the Jail Staff wrote letters on her behalf. I am appalled Judge Duffy was so empathic towards a woman with a long consistent criminal history who killed a man then ran away. This woman is not only guilty of murder but of child abuse, child neglect, child endangerment towards her own 4 kids. Did the Jail Staff not see the heartbroken daughter being dragged to the visitations week after week? It was normal for her kids to visit her in jail because of her criminal history. Now 4 kids are left behind to be raised by a man who is not even their biological father. Originally she was looking at 30 years to life and she gets 1/2 of that sentence. What an outrage for the victim's family."

  • "Pedophilia is a horrible crime that leaves many psychological scars. Pedophiles (as one can see from the local news in a small community) is rampant, but it is also is largely undetectable. So, what makes these guys tick? And, why do we find ourselves frequently shocked-as sports coaches, scout leaders, swimming instructors, teachers and (worst of all) relatives are discovered to be hidden "child molestors"? In this case--it was trusted family friend. I have studied pedophilia inside and outside of my profession for a number of years. They operate from a standpoint that often exceeds the smoothly executed moves of a skilled sociopath. They also strike fast and have a 6th sense for children who will not "tell". (One of my own children was violated by the wedding photographer at a wedding I attended and it surfaced in therapy years later). My son is terribly tormented to this day-and very mistrustful of men. The answer is: there is no way to detect them. Ever. Anytime you leave your child alone with a pediatrician, teacher, relative, friend, etc., you are running a risk. You may think this is paranoid thinking--but I cannot tell you how many times I wish I would have not excused myself to use the restroom briefly while my son was being "photographed". I will forever wish I had been more "paranoid", and I am certain he does also."

  • "::doglover:: You are so spot-on regarding how Harmon beat Costello. Harmon sat smug, in the middle of so many city council meeting audiences where she breathed rarified air. Who piped her that rarified air? We all know the answer. Who is next? We need to speak the fuck up. Caren, Kristen, Jim Guthrie? No thank you, fucktards. No thank you @Team Adam Hill accolytes."

  • "I do hope you are not that misogynistic, Mr. Downtown. Hill (as in District 3 Supervisor ADAM) has failed his District 3 residents. He could look fat or thin in that role, who cares, but he just fails, period. Mayor Hill rocks Arroyo Grande at every turn. Jim Hill is at the forefront of every issue, with sage advice and forward planning. Caren (because you do not care about spelling overall) Ray? She is throwing her hat into a ring that has thrived without her for quite some time. Ms. Ray is the past - Tony Ferrara's past, as we can all quote her, chapter and verse. If she thinks we do not remember her provenance? Bad on us. We have to be ever vigilant on who she was aligned too and continues to be aligned too. Caren is a cancer we need to avoid, period."

  • "Ladies & Gentlemen, In my next career, I am going to write a screenplay about a swinger police chief who hooks up her subordinates while in the hot tub, all in exchange for writing a few tickets. It might include a fabulous byline about a city manager who hooks her up with a couple hundred thousand dollars severance pay just for being scandalous....for good measure I would throw in a storyline where her kid gets addicted to drugs and counterfeits currency and robs even the chief's house! You cannot make this stuff up..."

  • "Ladies & Gentlemen, I think it is very obvious that Caren Ray is, by any measure, not fit to serve on the city council. She is hampered by her poor judgement, past behavior, scandals and, worst of all, her associations with people like Adam Hill. I think Caren Ray was able to slide into a few positions because the public knew so little about her, but now she has been exposed-and what we now know of her is astounding! Caren Ray's candidacy reminds me of a quote: "It is important to realize that, just because someone has been placed into a position of responsibility, that doesn't mean they will act responsibly. Dump Caren Ray."

  • "Keep an eye on who was on the board, one name is Noah Smuckler. You will likely see his name running for Gibson's seat in two years. He's been joined by christine johnson and jamie irons in changing a 34 million dollar sewer project to a 140 million project and growing.....just think what he could do for the county!"

  • "Caren's righteous attitude that she knows better than all is a turn off. She needs to be more humble, and realize that the rest of the council can be just as smart as her...if not smarter. She showed her true colors when she sat on the County Supervisor's board. Her loyalty to the dishonest and unethical Adam Hill is shameful. The truth came out when she lost to Lyn Compton. This is a game of power for her, which does not make for a good and fair leader. Her backers are still feeling the burn of their power being taken away. Running a city should not be about who has the power, it should be an opportunity to listen to the citizens and vote for the city improvement. From what I have read, the current council is finally coming together and has the citizens in their best interest. Things can't change overnight, it takes time. But I feel like they are making headway. Don't lose ground by allowing this control freak and sweetheart to the developers come back."

  • "Homeless or illegal, or not, why is it these upstanding citizens always seem to have the money to put those beautiful tattoos all over their bodies? And then the liberals like our Honorable Nancy Capps provides taxpayer money to remove them. They can afford to put them on, they can afford to take them off. Next week the Senate is going to vote on Kate's Law solely. Forget calling your Liberal Senators, they will never vote for it even though it was because of Kate, only only daughter, who was shot and killed in San Francisco by an illegal who had 6 - SIX = felonies and was suppose to be deported by San Francisco did not turn him over to ICE, and Kate died in her Dad's arms. We is still just sitting in jail, no formal charges, no court date!"

  • "Years back, Police Chief Lisa Solomon Chitty left her gun in an UNLOCKED car at her house and we all know what happened. Gun was stolen, later recovered in A-town, Chief Lisa quietly got her gun back and stayed on the job. She should've been fired for that incompetent offense but nope. She stayed on the city's payroll until *poof* she "retired." So now a vehicle was stolen from Lisa's residence (btw, has it been recovered?)... Hopefully Lisa & her SLO PD hubby didn't leave ANOTHER gun behind in the stolen Mustang!"

  • "Ladies & Gentlemen, My contacts at the Santa Barbara Police Department have shared that this man is a resident of Mexico, and he was in California because he had a job offer from Greg France at Mar Vista Berry. He was only in santa Barbara until he could get to Nipomo. I urge SLO County residents to push back against this type of scheme, as the resulting economic benefits of embracing 'Sanctuary City' are far outweighed by the social cost of jails, schools, hospitals, social welfare, etc., etc., etc. Reject Sanctuary City, reject senseless crime."

I am starting to see this web site as honest as the Tribune and other Fish wraps..simply report the incident and don't continue to drag people through the mud....people like honest reporting"
