The Adventure Pass sham has been unenforceable since it started. Just ignore the signs and drive through. They may bark a lot about you needing one but there is no bite. If they want to leave a ticket on your window just thank them for the scrap paper.

You should not have to have money to enjoy the outdoors.

Anyone wonder why flu shot usage is low among health care workers?

Maybe because these people know the risk vs reward ratio of flu shots.

As a healthcare worker myself I would not even consider putting the crap they preserve these shots with into my body.

To bad for those at Cottage.........either support the pharmaceutical companies agenda or wear a scarlet (letter) mask.

Bernard I would be interested to hear your opinion on bicycles and our local trails specifically.

Since when is $150-200 a night affordable camping?

Why not expand the campground? Just what this town needs another boutique camping experience......pretty soon only the rich will be able to go to the beach.

Mr. Locke maybe you should also read green eggs and ham...or maybe just eat some green eggs and save us all the headache of listening to your tea party psyco-babble.

This law was passed, upheld by the supreme court, and is now the law of the land. That's how things are done in this country. What is there for the Democrats to negotiate?

Ted Cruz and his tea party wacko's are masters at framing the debate to suit their purpose. Luckily most people are aware of their tactics and don't buy the BS. It's ok though, the longer this craziness goes on the more people realize just how out of touch these guys are. Good luck with re-election tea party, you guys are digging your own graves.

Please enlighten me Mr. Clausen. I don't really like what cars have done to our society but I doubt their going away anytime soon.

I've never heard anyone pushing for more bike infrastructure saying cars should be banned. As for the Utopian society, I'm a realist, I'm sure you'll be able to drive your car for many decades to come.

You pro car guys just like to scream "the sky is falling" and whine about how everyone is trying to take away your cars.

If you think building a few protected bike paths is a "utopian society" then maybe your the one that needs to think things through a bit more.

I don't think anyone ever suggested we take away your cars Holly. You could probably just drive where you want. Why does better infrastructure for cyclists always have to mean no cars in the drivers mind.

Maybe you could even do the rest of society a favor and carpool or take public transit. With more focus on alternative transportation maybe the bus would be practical.

Oh Mr. Adams......I'm outraged that you think your right to drive is more important than my right not to breathe your pollution, that your right to drive is more important than all the political chaos and world turmoil that our dependance on fossil fuels brings, that your right to drive is a god given or an American right, that paving the planet so we can all drive around in our cars is somehow ok because the collective delusion says so.

Ok, I'm not really outraged but no one is really trying to force you out of your point is that more cycling infrastructure is good for all of us and the planet. We are running out of room for more pavement and sooner or later we are going to have to accept that bike lanes and other alternative transportation options are not responsible for the ever increasing congestion on our roads, cars are.

All of you who see this as an erosion of personal liberties are in denial.

Second hand smoke affects other people and is undeniably dangerous to everyone's health.

I quit a 2pack a day habit 25years ago and I know firsthand that you have to be in denial to smoke in the first's an addiction.

So please take you personal freedoms into your hermetically sealed room and smoke all you want because when you smoke in public you are affecting my freedom to live without your carcinogens.

Wow foo.....that's some brainwashed rhetoric there. How many of us are one paycheck away from being on the street. Maybe we should remove all those people too as a preventative measure. That's a pretty slippery slope your walking on.

Maybe the "public guardian" should relocate you somewhere you would be more safe.
