Im confused. Were all of these frightened Noletans direct descendants of the areas first inhabitants? Are they living in a dreamworld that tells them once theyve "arrived" they may shut the door on all future growth and change?

I ALSO had to double check the url to make sure i was not on the Newspress website- what gives, Indy? Use of the phrase "could be" in a news headline? What next-- we'll read how "some say" (another N-P journalistic nugget)....followed by opinion?

On DUI Case Against Peter Lance Could Be Collapsing

John locke- i can think of nowhere that statements
--denying plastic bags are harmful to sealife;
--references to homeless persons as terrorists
--voting to support secret meetings and gutting of Brown Act

Would be considered "moderate". And those examples are just from the past three months.

Ethan- good report, but a fact that really illustrates how this so-called "storm of dissent" emerged is that it was orchestrated by none other than Mike Brown (yes, THAT Mike Brown) in his COLAB role, - the "dissent" is nothing more than a wealthy property owner funding faux public outrage over something that , under Mike Browns reign of power, was never enforced by County staff, to the detriment of neighborhoods. Mike himself was very vocal at the hearing.

Donna thank you for passing on this vital information- since the Baupost group first purchased the treasured Bixby ranch, many of us in the community have tried to discern their long term plans - we must remain vigilant- the degradation of farmland for the purpose of future devlopment must not be allowed to continue.

So true, mr. adams. The tortured description by the colab-synez valleyites of what a community of interest is just gets whackier by the decade- bottom line- in their minds each subgroup or likeminded group who live within proximity of one another should get their own district- which in SB county would produce at least a dozen districts- when five districts are state law.
Ms Heller thanks for a great column.

On Communities of Interest?

The REAL story as usual is in the details. The "Trust Act" is an overreaching piece of legislation that goes FAR beyond what the PUEBLO folks, and Marty Blum, are saying. It goes beyond the so called "opt out" of S-Comm, and actually creates a number of unfunded and LOCAL law enforcement requirements and micromanagement that have nothing to do with Secure Communities. as a liberal dem i am thankful to Das for voting against this ill informed piece of legislation.
