Exactly. This is a cop out - and being PC under pressure is not being policy-wise. You were right the first time, Indy. This is a deeply flawed measure. Vote "NO" - and let them try a better do-over down the road. Fair is fair.

This paragraph says it all: "What’s more, regardless of whether the specific technique is fracking, acidizing, or steam injection, the problems of water use, water contamination, air emissions, health impacts, and climate change concerns remain the same." P is blatant fear-mongering, but the P for Price the taxpayers will pay is not. Noonmeasurep.org for more INFORMED insights. This s a very badly written policy. P is for Poor.

No on P is the only way to vote if you care about the Santa Barbara County you have come here to inhabit! See what Chamber of Commerce says: http://www.santabarbaraview.com/santa...

I guess Jay's been drinking the Kook-Aid. Yeah, I spelled that the way I want to. I'll listen to Dr. Fauci, head of NIH, instead. GOD JAY - WTF UP! http://weaselzippers.us/202944-nihs-f...

Infectious Diseases aren't racist, they aren't politically biased and they're equal opportunity . Political correctness, on the other hand, has brought us "workplace violence" and scary diseases from other countries because we're too PC to stop the stupidity. That is dumb.

I remember the bingo tent lit up like a giant mushroom on quiet Santa Ynez nights. Agree with supervisors & Barney - Just Say No to Las Vegas in the Valley, and the drinking and gambling addictions that have sprung from the bingo tent. There simply has to be a better way... (And never mind 143 new houses in the worst drought on record). Really? Really?!?

The question remains, why were dogs allow to "maul" each other unsupervised? I have walked in this facility many times and I never assume all the gates are shut, which is quite scary considering some of the inhabitants. I would support more security measures when dangerous dogs are being housed. And I do not support adopting them out to ignorant owners who call them "loving and friendly." Having had my dogs attacked numerous times by pits/pit mixes, and unruly dogs at large, I do not feel I'm off base. Sad as it is, some animals are not fit for public consumption. (Neither are their owners). YES, the humans who "create" these dogs are to blame, and they should be prosecuted for animal cruelty (like child abusers). It's CRUEL to raise an animal whose fate is imprisonment or euthansia or death by mauling.

I think we have reached a right-center-left agreement. NO WATER - no more BIG water using projects! And that's not discriminatory, that is a FACT. Perhaps the cash-flush Chumash can fund their own desalinization plant and pipe water in from the Pacific. Then they can build their dream casino. Until then, there is no way such a project should be approved, never mind whatever they envision on the old Fess Parker land. If Big Ag has to cut back too, so be it, fair is fair. We do not have unlimited WATER.

Where, oh where... Is the EPA when you really need them? Didn't I see some quibble about vintners and wetlands lately? Why doesn't this massive water grab merit the same level of Fed scrutiny? Who's F-ing who?
