In Placer County, the PCWA included in their emergency water declaration of April 11, 2014 a clause that new construction of SFR could continue but that NO OUTDOOR WATER USE at the new homes would be allowed until the emergency was lifted. Pretty progressive for a bunch of right wingers. Concrete trucks carry their own water by the way. The writing is on the wall with water in CA now. Ever heard of sustainability?

I would love to see the right wing religious anti abortion folks actually practice their religion and perhaps apply themselves to doing something positive, like adopting and orphan. It is always easier to complain than to work out and implement a solution. And didn't SCOTUS apply a 100 foot buffer zone for military funerals? And don't the justices enjoy a buffer zone of similar size outside the court?

The Asian Citrus Psyllid is a very serious pest that could lead to the destruction of all Citrus in the state. It can carry a virus for which the only recourse is tree removal and burning. Ironically, it is spread not by the fruit, but by the foliage. It is being spread by the cultural desire for citrus with "stem and leaf". If the bug is discovered in your orchard, you can spray, or you can remove your trees, no questions. Santa Barbara is part of the State of CA, and needs to take this infestation seriously, cooperate with the USDA, and not be the reason the bug gets loose. Neonicotinoids are not the only materials available for control of this pest.

Hey Jerr, How about pardoning a few thousand non violent three strikers currently clogging the for profit prison system and causing the redirection of state prisoners to underfunded county facilities. By the way, I think you are a liar.

Plastic bags are completely recyclable, light weight, easy to ship, convenient, sanitary and efficient. Banning them may appear to be a good idea, but this is only because the opportunity cost of the alternatives is not understood or financially realized. It doesn't work in Santa Monica, why would it work in podunk, I mean Santa Barbara.

Tom, you are obviously part of the problem. Here is the simple solution to health care: deny coverage to anyone who is not A: a rich entitled writer with a credit card, like Tom, B:insured. The rush to sign up would be immediate.

Hey, Fire Department, stop polishing your trucks and watch the traffic in town for five minutes. If you did, you would see that people do not stop at stop signs or red lights, they cannot stay in there lanes, they never signal, and they are all on the phone. You are nuts to be a pedestrian in SB. It is safer to play on the freeway than to walk anywhere near traffic in town. The City and County could balance their budgets with traffic tickets in one day.

If you want your Post Office to stay around then you have to help it show a profit by using it to mail letters and packages. If you purchase your labels on line, you can enter any post office zip code for the sending location, and that post office will get the credit for the sale. You can purchase your stamps from your local post office instead of the supermarket. You can purchase their fancy boxes. Stop whining and put your actual support into it. I go way out of my way to make sure that my small rural post office is in the black. I ask Bob how it is going. I ask Bob if I can help. I supply him with postal boxes that only customers can order so that he can have them for counter customers. The postal service is a part of your community and if you have not been supporting them, then it is your fault they are short of money. This goes for any other service you value, by the way.

Beutel and her fiancee/husband are running amok and should be fired. No pension, no gold anything. Everybody knows those breathalizers are delicate and easily manipulated. Plus, she was denying the victims their rights to blood or urine tests, which are repeatable because they knew the department policy would shred the forms and therefore destroy the forgeries. The City needs to step up and recompense these victims.
