That is one of my favorite areas to explore, in general. I still haven't made it all the way up to Alder camp, but I plan to backpack out to Upper San Ynez camp soon. In 5 years I am yet to see the San Ynez dry at the Juncal crossing so your report surprises me, EastBeach. Fox creek and Alder creek seem to have water even in the worst of droughts, though.

I know that brackish discharge is a problem with desalination, but it is interesting to me that solar powering our desal. plant hasn't been mentioned once. That would at least solve the problem of the expense of powering the plant.

My father-in-law has gone from smoking two packs a day to no cigarettes at all in less than a year because of these things. He has also reduced his nicotine intake as well. It's been great for him and good for the rest of us too; strawberry banana vapor certainly smells better than stale cigarette smoke. That's enough research for me...

I agree with the points about creating additional public transportation options and I have always been a strong advocate for commuter rail (why not add additional weekend routes too?). I also think the bridge widening needs to be a continued demand on SB's part.
However, this sentence smacks of classic and entirely unnecessary SB classism: "It’s always seemed insane to spend half-a-billion dollars to widen an eight-mile stretch of road to spare 13,000 Venturans the hell of rush-hour gridlock as they go to and from jobs in Santa Barbara."
I had a hard time pushing through the rest of the piece after reading that.

This is the second time in as many weeks that I have read a column criticizing the fairness of the Senate based on population without a mention of the House. It seems like any discussion of one needs to go hand in hand with the other.
I agree that the Electoral College is ridiculous.

It seems very wrong that someone with prior DUI and Hit and Run incidents on his record would be working as a local representative.

I've met quite a few cruisers in wineries and breweries. That is money spent that directly effects local business. $92 per person is a significant impact.
