  • ""7. We will never have affordable housing if cheap construction labor (undocumented workers) are deported." sorry but i'd rather have cost rise to support a citizen make a decent wage. want to know why "no one will do the work"? Because ILLEGAL labor keeps wages artificially low. why aren't the folks on the left screaming about that?"

  • "Geez, talk about taking something simple and turning it into something difficult! Great place to live = expensive, crappy place to live = cheap. How's that for a formula? I must have missed that part of the Bill of Rights where it says; "You have the right to a wonderful home". Try working your ass off and buying your first house when your in your 50's like I did! If you want it sooner, work smarter or move to Detroit, you can buy a big house for a dollar!"

  • "Journalism and being an investigative reporter used to mean something. The media and politicians have lost almost all credibility. Once your integrity is gone you have nothing left. No wonder the Tribune endorsed Adam Hill...he must be a 'good guy' after all, the Tribune said he is, right? As a communtiy we have a DUTY to give CalCoastNews the support they need and deserve. Contrary to what Jack Nicholson said, WE CAN HANDLE THE TRUTH and are owed the facts from media news sources whose No# 1 priority is to report the truth."

  • "I'm trying to find where in the book of life it is written you shall have affordable housing wherever and whenever you want it. What Alan doesn't understand is it's called supply side economics. When more people want to live in nice areas the price will go up due to competition. I know areas in the valley where Allan can buy a house for $150k. That's pretty affordable Allan you could move there and be so happy."

  • "@LOJohnny ... You are full of baloney. You are probably aligned with Parkinson or SLO County Admin folks who are trying to deflect blame and save their ass. I do agree with your question about paying 200,000 a year to someone who is inept .... but the bigger question here is that this is a potential manslaughter case. In this particular case your suggestion that this is not unusual for an autopsy to fail to determine an exact cause of death is complete bull sh*t."

  • "Copperhead "beating"...is that professional and legal?Nope. Just as I said...Bullies with Badges. If you live here long enough, you will find out what they are really like. And once they harass you, they won't leave you alone. They call it the "municipal shuffle". They bring in the worst cops from other cities and hire them. Hired thugs."

  • "Come to think of it, the very phrase Affordable Housing is a Leftist Lie and Scam. Think about it, they (leftists) create the problem and then give it a name and ask for more powers and taxes to FIX the problem they created!!! It's pure Genius by the Political left to deflect the consequences of their actions and policies!"

  • "We will never have affordable housing ad long as new homes are assed a “fee” to support affordable housing. The “fee” automatically raises the price of all homes. We will never have affordable housing as long as renters vote in new bond “fees and taxes” because landlords must raise the rent to compensate. We will never have affordable housing as long as property taxes go up. We will never have affordable housing as long as renters damage property because landlords have to raise rents to cover the risk. We will never have affordable housing as long as laws are made that prevents screening of renters. We will never have affordable housing as long as laws are made that make landlords remodel homes to conform to new codes We will never have affordable housing as long as tenants are irresponsible. We will never have affordable housing as long as California is controlled by Democrats. We will never have affordable housing as long as California schools give free tuition to illegal aliens. We will never have affordable housing as long as California is a criminal haven for illegal aliens."

  • "We could have affordable housing if higher density multifamily units were allowed and there was less demand for open space. The cost of plans and permits and assessments is about $60,000 before even a single teaspoon of dirt is moved. The incredibly slow process to obtain permission to build adds tremendously to the cost."

  • "You will never have affordable housing while SLO County remains a "slow growth" (virtually no growth) county. With government limiting new housing, the demand will always outstrip the supply and so the prices will remain high. Apparently that is what the majority of the voters (particularly the Cal Poly students who will leave after 4-5 years, but really like the "small town" feel while they are here) want."

  • "You missed the mark on this story Cal Coast News. What should we expect the family's lawyer to plead in court? Of course, they will attack the autopsy results. THEY ARE AFTER MONEY from the tax payers. Unlike what you see on television, it is not unusual for an autopsy to fail to determine an exact cause of death. Walter's work seems to be below standard is some cases but using this pleading in a civil lawsuit seeking money from the county adds nothing. The big question is WHY ARE WE PAYING $200,000 A YEAR?"

  • "I'm getting pretty sick and tired of right-wingers calling every news article they don't like "fake news'; right-wing hate websites invented fake news; things like "Hillary Clinton runs a child sex ring out of a pizza parlor" - patently absurd; now they use the term whenever the facts don't fit with their beliefs. Argue the statistics if you like; it has always been easy to manipulate statistics to prove what you want, calling it fake news is just wrong, it is not made-up fantasy like that on right wing fake news websites. BTW: fake news sites don't work on liberals; every time a liberal website has up a fake news article knocking a conservative (as an experiment, by the way, liberals don't practice fake news, it;s a right wing thing), it takes about two minutes for a liberal to call bullshit. Go ahead, look it up...Better yet, find a liberal fake news website; they aren't there!"

  • "It's another case of administrative musical chairs. Administrators lack ethics and morals; they simply follow the buck. It used to be that public servants had some amount of loyalty to the people they serve; now they chase the dollar sign. Worst of all, the people who determine the salaries keep raising salaries as enticement for administrators to stay, which only exacerbates the problem. Lower admin salaries; give the job to someone who is sincerely dedicated to the community rather than people dedicated to making a buck."

  • "Here is the only way , I see to get a home in SLO County, If Mom Or Dad will not loan you a down payment, You need to find a older person , who does not have the time or the money to upgrade their home, You the buyer Find a small down payment ,hand that over,to seller. Next seller , carries the note , with the interest rate not too tough to do, then you make your payments wait till the house goes up then you can refi. to a typical loan Note this only work's if the house is paid for, also if your short on income you can Reverse Amortise stack it onto of the note.. This is how I got my house, I got lucky , you need to have two parties who trust each other , This is a way to go around the Gov/Banking Industry, Run a ad What do you have to lose if your open & Honest with people. The older person wins, monthly income, a pride of ownership helps them not rent a house, It's a win win for both party... Here is my Effort to provide positive,input that works , Look it pained me allot to put my heart & soul into a home, but I learned it made me a better person, it took about 6 years to heal, but I did move on , I bought a 1966 Rancher in Oregon,on 1.25 AC I paired $194.900 in 2012 , Put a big down payment down & got a Priv.party to carry the loan. My property here in Oregon ,is now roughly worth $315. I work hard every day, I do work in the SLO county area & in Oregon, Honesty Does pay off ! Good Luck!"

He is just a Jersey squawk, ranting with no harmony. He's been thrown from the corner stoop because he's the big boy who does cry."

  • "Sinking ship is correct, 150 million sewer plant that has yet to be planned while the original planned upgrade for the existing site would have been running now for over a year, most of the good department heads fired and replaced with inexperienced people who are clearly struggling. Budget and spending out of control and the city headed for financial disaster. Due to the hiring practices of Christine Johnson, Noah Smukler and Jamie Irons. Hopefully Morro Bay will soon realize the consequences of not paying attention to who they elect and make some changes. Everyday that goes by is costing the residents more $$. Shameful! p.s. if you see those elected and former elected folks in town, make sure to "thank" them for what they have done."
