Hopefully there's some effort to get this info into Spanish-speaking parts of our community. I'd hope some low-income Chihuahua owners in my neighborhood might take advantage of the free "snip snip" if they know about it (any chance of a mobile clinic?).

Really cheesy. It looks like a giant fly died in front of the building.

The problem, as you'd learn by reading this book, isn't a plastic shopping bag on the beach. The problem is the plastics that break down, almost but never dissolving, that have become denser than plankton in some parts of the ocean.
Of course, there are those who agree with Sarah Palin who, as governor of Alaska, decided since Alaskans weren't the ones who put the mountains of trash on their beaches, they weren't going to clean it up.
Maybe it's not all our "fault," but it's become a problem that involves all of us. We all share the same global environment, for better or worse.

Don't forget the old guys! If you're not up for the "10-15 year commitment," a senior dog is always grateful for a home, usually very easy to integrate into your household routine. Often they've been someone's companion for many years before circumstances changed and they need a new place... it's sad to know they often won't be with you much longer, but those final years are truly golden.

Kudos to the volunteers!

Agricultural subsidies are critical for keeping farms in our communities. These are the groves and agricultural lands that have helped buffer higher-density residential areas during fires, that feed our families, that keep our county beautiful. Local farms are essential to our food security and environmental health. We would all lose it they were forced out by higher water rates.
To compare doubling a $40 household water bill with doubling a thousands of dollars agricultural bill doesn't, um, hold water. Private residents can reduce water use without reducing their income. Farmers and ranchers can't simply choose to use less water than the crops need without additional consequences.
Golf courses, not so much.

I think part of the point is that there are songs with lyrics that pass for good poetry and that you CAN hear them on the radio. At least for an hour on Monday mornings.
There's not much to like about most commercial radio in town. I'm happy to find a few places of refuge on KCSB.

So, 14noscams is FOR city services like maintenance of our streets and beaches, but AGAINST supporting city employees and unions? Huh.
Kudos to those folks who are willing to put in some sweat equity in their community, in addition to supporting a living wage for city employees.
