I was out there during the great oil spill here and near folks forming GOO at that time: the oil industry patriarchs are NOT interested in being good stewards of the earth. The letter writer virtually admits that oil doesn't care and stresses we have to defeat P or else no "blame [to] California corporations for moving to states that have a secure energy source?" Pure blarney and BS.

Leaning toward YES on S... yet as Nick Welsh pointed out a coupled of Angry Poodles ago, this may be a boondoggle.
The looks sloppily written, and I have become much more suspicious of "buildings, tech infrastructure, building demolition" parts of these education bond measures... WHAT ABOUT TEACHERS?? and wonderful, creative, FACE-TO-FACE teaching with emphasis on teacher:student ratio and creative pedagogy, and NOT always based on gadgets and hi-tech.. it's always about infrastructure...

Close Diablo Now! Where's the Abalone Alliance? If Germany can close half their reactors in a year, WE can close one in California by August 2015.

all the above so correct, guns don't kill people only "pills, razor blades' etc. -- oops, how about the 9-year old in Arizona who killed her gun instructor?
oh yea, just an accident, like a razor blade slipping out of one's hand. what a load of junk you guys push, baloney!

agree with Indyholio, and the sarcastic tone! ...Yet, drdan09 feels a bit disingenuous when claiming "its foolhardy to purchase water anywhere to provide green lawns, irrespective of how rich one is[.]" <-- what? you just figured out the USA is a capitalistic economy?? Plutocracy reigns, materialism rules, groundmine all the water beneath your private plot, don't give back to "the common good", create your wonderful individual life, don't support public education.

23 acres feels like more than a vacant lot...? We DO need such a facility, but dolphin's right, some need it at an earlier age to make collages.

Kudos to all who finished the Nine Trails -- a monster, and esp. in August! Wonderful photo of King Snake engorging the rattler...thanks! Would that have been a mountain King or a regular King??

it's so exorbitant, and horrendously redundant, that let's can this white elephant now -- we paid a fortune for the first one, never used it, mothballed it right away... the answer here,folks, is REDUCE DEMAND. It can be done.
