Good for her! Trump running for president may come across as a joke for many but this country seems to reward people for breaking the rules. He had some very valid points yesterday, and I imagine he will drop out again as soon as his television show is about to come on, but either way, hopefully some of these ideas will filter down to the rest of the candidates in both parties. Oh and please get rid of the middle class destroying H1-B Visa program. Ridiculous!!!

A helicopter??? Does that seem just a little excessive?

Why am I paying this gas tax again??? I am thinking my favorite oil companies should be paying it.

On Supes Gently Grill Feds over Refugio Spill Response

Posted on May 28 at 9:29 a.m.

21,000 gallons my A$$. 21,000 barrels was more like it. 21,000 gallons is a fair sized swimming pool. Hopefully the county sinks it's claws into this and does something. All of the gas tax I pay for what? Some one not having the nads to tell someone to put a shut off valve on a pipe? It is sickening. This a federal blunder as well. Can you imagine, an earthquake...oil and Diablo Canyon at the same time? I hope not.

On Refugio Oil Disaster Reminds There Will Be Spills

Wow, hard to believe. Great report. The only pipe without an automatic shutoff valve says it all. Speechless. Some heads are gonna roll.

On Huge Oversight Gap on Refugio Pipeline

Posted on May 21 at 11:21 a.m.

Trying to scoop up oil in 5 Gallon buckets, anywhere between 20,000 to 100,000 gallons, (4000 to 20,000 barrels in oil dude talk) isn't going to do jack!@#$!

Why are they not spreading out hay bales on the beach, letting them soak up the oil, especially during low tide, and then scooping them up? Trucks and heavy equipment at least for a few days. This dilly dallying around is ridiculous. You could probably make a big pile of hay/oil and incinerate it instead of filling a land fill with 5 gallon buckets mixed with sand, water and oil. Heck, you might be able to throw some of the hay bales in the near shore and get some too. I think this clean up has been a bit slow and poorly directed.

If there is something good to come out of this, it will be a learning experience for a couple of reasons:
1. Make the oil companies have their own emergency response plan, equipment etc as a collective. You are part of the petroleum industry around here, you pitch in and reviewed by local fire department. I am blown away there is ZERO local oversight apparently. Make the petroleum industry pay for this over sight, I will further provide decent jobs and reduce conflict of interest.

2. There will be collateral losses of wildlife sadly, but throwing some horsepower at this clean up quickly would be better than letting things stew for longer and make it's way down the coast. Hear it is has made its way all the way to Haskells now.

3. Should be an education in the value of the jewels of the Gaviota coast. This accident ironically happened SMACK dab in the middle of the prized coastline. Now potentially both campsites will be closed for how long? This will be a huge BLACK EYE for the petroleum industry locally. I would like to see them jump in, clean up, and buy a couple more large properties along this coast and make camp sites out of them as a sign of good faith. Or split. (I hear Naples is up for sale, wink wink, nudge nudge..) And please!!, we don't need another ridiculous snowy plover sanctuary. These campsites educate all sorts on the beauty of the Ocean, seashore, wildlife etc. Countless children get their fist, maybe only experiences camping at these beautiful spots.

I don't think big oil will go away, and they do support many with decent jobs in the area. But as my uncle used to say, "You wanna play, you gotta pay". There needs to be a higher level of accountability enforced upon these companies/corporations. Sounds like local government needs to get involved too instead of standing around until something hits the fan.

On State of Emergency Declared for Refugio Oil Spill

L Dighera your statement of 5 gallon buckets for 20,000 gallons of crude I would say is most poignant. Why are they not spreading out hay bales on the beach, letting them soak up the oil, especially during low tide, and then scooping them up? Trucks and heavy equipment at least for a few days. This dilly dallying around is ridiculous. You could probably make a big pile of hay/oil and incinerate it instead of filling a land fill with 5 gallon buckets mixed with sand, water and oil.

Awesome work Mr Policeman. Keep up the good work!!

On Deputies Seize Five Pounds of Meth During Traffic Stop

Awesome! This kind of crap goes on all the time in these good old boys club professions. These are the growing pains of modern litigation regarding labor laws. I am kind of amazed the man in charge would be ignorant enough to pull crap like this and thinking there wouldn't be any ramifications. Actually considering the male ego...yeah it is feasible. A woman friend in the legal profession underwent many of the same challenges a while back and to make it even better had to deal with the opposite sex issues. Many of these events are squashed by good old boys clubs and the threat of a scarlet letter in a small town. I am glad the plaintiff's had the courage and prevailed. Maybe someone in the SBPD can man up.
