Matt Kettmann’s article about Venoco’s plans to open the pier off Ellwood Beach, also referred to as Lease 421, has many of us residents and our visiting friends and family from all over the world concerned about the claim that there is a pressure buildup — we believe this is just an excuse by Venoco to reopen a closed well, which would put all of us at risk. The link to a petition to the State Lands Commission that we are circulating is located at, a site. We had several hundred signers in just 36 hours. Please help get the word out as all submissions are due to the California State Land Commission by Friday, December 20.

Not to undermine your concerns, but their are gas detectors and alarms all over the Baccara Resort, just in case. So there must be some kind of pressure else the Baccara wouldn't go thru the expense to avoid lawsuits.

All that risk!

Good grief. If you add up all the oil spills in SB county for the past 40 years you get 1/100th of what is in the garages and curb areas from oil changes and mini spills by residents. And we're all suffering so much!

Oil and oil products are terrible! Including the pen you write with, the computer you are using to read this and the medical equipment at your doctors office. OMG we're all in so much danger!

It's so much cooler to start and circulate a petition so you can pretend to protect people from.... Nothing.... And feel self congratulatory at your lib-dem meetings and parties.

What a waste.
