It's amazing how shortsighted we (once?) were...thinking, 'Hey, how 'bout we just use that island out there to test these new bombs? What could it hurt, right?"

1. - Can't we all just get along?
2. - As much as I loathe to admit it, Helene Schneider is right (I think I just threw up in my mouth a little bit). That train bridge widening is a MUST and should be added to the initial plan.
3. - MesaJim for City Council. There. I said it.

When is this project slated to commence? I run a business with a warehouse located in Carpinteria, and will not abide the convoluted commute. I'll be looking into relocating our facility to Goleta from Carp. prior to the mayhem...

Why is nothing reported here about the individual she hired to beat her? Was he detained? Isn't there something with which this man should be charged? Or is it legal to beat someone with their consent/payment for services rendered?

Absolutely ridiculous that the PD would take aim at this. "...don't have enough cops"?! What about the SEVEN they just swore in within the last month? ...or the NEW officer position currently being suggested/considered to act as a downtown beat enforcer?

Removal of the bench would be like banning motorcycles to prevent smog.

Why not simply invert every other brick to an upright position to give it a jagged edge, eliminating the sitting appeal? Geez--do I have to think of everything?

Vote MesaJim for City council!

There are more laws in this "free country" telling us what we CAN'T do than there are those telling us what we CAN do.

Stop the madness.

OK, this argument has gone on long enough that I think it's almost time for someone to incite Godwin's Law...who's it gonna be?

"No Tap water drinking for the next 120 days"? If you're still drinking tap water, well, good luck with that. That ship sailed 20 years ago. I'm not even sure tap water in Alaska would be safe anymore...and as far as this spill goes, let's just hope CalTrans isn't in charge of the clean-up efforts. We all know how THAT will end: 154 shut down in both directions for six weeks while two guys with shovels fill one wheelbarrow a day, "supervised" by twenty others standing around texting each other.

This would've been a huge blunder. Glad to know our voices were not only heard, but heeded. Power to the people!

Conversely, the money will need to come from somewhere, so let's keep our minds open to other possibilities--like charging a dollar to walk through a park.
