  • "FAFCo will NEVER allow Los Osos to dissolve. Do you know who makes up LAFCo? ELECTED representatives for other districts! Do you think for one second that they would agree to take on the cost and bother of Los Osos and hand their constituents the bill? What color is the sky in your world?"

  • "How sad is this, another bureaucrat justifying their job at the expense of those who are the most vulnerable and easy targets. Barely monetary funds to even defend themselves. What a cowardly move. Hope you can sleep well tonight Mr. Brescia. I hope your family never needs help in hard times. You will find swallowing that bitter pill quite hard to choke down. JMO. Bless these people who continue to fight for these kids, They are true of our human kind."

  • "The Mesa residents should replant all the eucalyptus trees that were cut down to make way for their homes. Those trees were there for a reason, to block the wind. How does anyone live downwind from a beach and NOT expect the sand to blow? The wind is always going to blow- -we live on the coast! Blaming the State Park is ridiculous."

  • "Posts an ad in Craigs list for sex with a minor ?? It goes to show that what a difficult situation it is with sex offenders, this guy was convicted 30 years ago for doing the same stuff. I really don't think that there is a cure for them so what do you do? you can't lock them up for life."

  • "I live next to a giant pile of sand blown there by the wind...but I want to Sue when it blows into my yard. Are these people smoking crack? Of course all the APCD cares about is operating budget money...hello...water is wet and fire will burn. What don't people understand about how Government works? The goal here is to shut down the dunes from those evil Bakersfield hicks that come over here with the ATVs. We all know and understand this."

  • "Dr. Brescia made a decision based on legal counsel, which has thus far been silent on the matter regarding the change in MOU with the Friends of Camp Hapitok. What exactly changed in the last month? Did nobody at the county's legal office see this change coming? Was Dr. Crocker aware that these changes were coming? In essence, when and where did the ball get dropped? It seems to me that when working with a group of volunteers (Friends of Camp Hapitok) who provide a program for students in need, that the county's legal department *must* work to ensure that this program is protected. It is a sham that mistake of the magnitude has come about at such a late hour in the camp planning process. The Friends of Camp Hapitok is working hard to make sure camp runs in 2016, but in the meantime we all need to keep an eye on the COE and their legal counsel."

  • "Nice work from the new Superintendent...working out just like the Bureaucrat who anointed him, King Crocker. Maybe if someone would have run against him, we would have found out what kind of human being he was...that comes out in an election. But the anointing did nothing to expose his character...only the 95 people in his district knew anything about him...the state of education is a joke."

  • "Just how many more examples do we need before people will slowly wake up from the Fog. Government and the Bureaucracy that makes up ALL Government programs doesn't give a rats ass about you, the children, the homeless, the battered woman, Nothing. They care about the process, the paperwork, and their Jobs. If this example of SLO Government booting out special needs kids doesn't wake people up nothing will. This is Government at Normal and today you are seeing what the future holds for a people willing to place their trust in Government rather than themselves."

  • "Bingo jorge, The slo county flood control district is already the lead agency for all the individual unincorporated water districts of the county and supposedly already manages each of those. And the BOS already has that plaque on the wall that says "the buck stops here". They are the 5 most powerful people in the county who have the final say in what these agencies do and how they get their funding. IMHO, it is purposely made confusing and hard to follow. And why would the county tax payers be expected to fork over even more tax money to pay for a "new" agency and fund it's now needed employees, if there is already one now. Are these new positions for this new agency going to infilled by existing employees or new hires? It was my impression the county is already having a hard time keeping all the departments funded and positions filled. County staff always makes it's staff report to the BOS on every topic and always make their recommendations to the board based on those staff reports, whether or not the public is actually allowed to see or comment on them at the BOS meetings."

  • "Yes you are missing something here. First, Supervisor Arnold is most definately not an instigator for creating another layer of governance. I consider this whole basin discussion to be like minded with what is mine is mine and what is your's is negotiable. Sure the coined answer is that this is all very complicated. Complicated it must be inorder to cloak the taking. The simple answer would be to first hold our ground and test the sovereignty that our Incorporated County of San Luis Obispo is afforded under the Sate of California Constitution. This would be my first challenge before funding county staff to run in every dirrection, again, at your expense."

  • "True, but the person relating the story of talking to County Counsel identified herself on KPRL. Even if it's not true, it does appear that County Counsel did not protect the BOS from voting on something illegal. So, I stand by my position that she is incompetent and needs to be replaced."

  • "Mbwaiter, you said, "The more you post the more I really understand that you really do not understand anything about Morro Bay, the Government Process and how inconsistent your statements are. CEQA review is require for every single project" No, that is not so. Please review this City of Morro Bay document: www.morro-bay.ca.us/DocumentCenter/View/6836 It is called, simply, "ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW (CEQA)" The document says, among other things, "“In some cases, state-level decision-makers have decided that no environmental review is necessary. Some kinds of projects are exempt from the environmental review process. There are two sources of exemptions. One source is the CEQA statute” Many Morro Bay projects have been declared exempt from CEQA. One example that comes to mind is the 2009 project to upgrade the desal plant. Some of us thought that one should have been subject to CEQA because the project essentially doubled plant capacity and thus the potential environmental effects of increased brine disposal. However, the Capital Projects Manage did declare it "categorically exempt from CEQA",and that declaration was formally recorded"

  • "It might be time to follow the money. Who have been the biggest donors to Mecham and Arnold in respect to these water issues. I think Mecham has stated that he will not be running for office again although Arnold will be. The campaign money should start rolling in soon as the campaigning will soon begin if it hasn't already. As usual the little guy will more than likely be the big loser when this is over and the big guns with the money will prevail. Politics as usual."
