While I'm no fan of fracking, I would not support Measure P if you care at all about the county being able to fund public safety, public works, parks, etc. since the measure as written is so poorly done, it will certainly result in successful litigation against the county, at massive taxpayer expense.

Multiple-stabbing homicide. Tragic. Ban all the guns! Oh, wait...

It's astonishing how many Lois Capps lovers/defenders there are out there. I would never vote from Chris Mitchum, but we all should admit Lois Capps is a do-nothing train wreck who has totally overstayed her welcome in Congress. We need a legitimate DEMOCRAT to challenge and beat her. Someone who has a well-developed vision, who can articulate it to the district. Until then we get to settle for two out-of-touch seniors as our candidates. We can and should expect better.

I think the scariest part of this is Tom Fayram being in charge of our precious water, and being referred to as a "Czar". If you've ever met the man, the words "Peter Principle" pop into your head. Tom certainly tries hard, but he's a lifelong county civil servant with a vapid look in his eyes.
I wonder what his plans are to keep the south coast supplied with water?

I like going there. The food is excellent, and it's a great "hub" of activity, good for people-watching. I think the prices, although not "cheap", are reasonable considering the downtown location in the center of the SB Public Market. For me and my wife, for two very filling entrees and at least one Thai Iced Tea, it's probably around $40 total, which is probably about $5 more than we'd pay at Tap Thai.

Uh, and Mr. Easton resigned and moved out of the city. Now they picked the best candidate, and it's only to serve out the remaining term.

I'll be shocked if they don't appointed Onnen, if only for his previous council experience.

Such an odd event, even for SB. I might show up and offer someone ca$h for anything good, but not likely there will be any. It's usually stuff from Granny's attic.
