@ someguysb. The verb is "pooh-pooh," not as you've written it. "Poo-poo," as we all know, is #2.
Speaking of #2, I prefer my nature without the acrylic coloring. To me it is just another version of graffiti; some putz displaying his ego, saying "Hey! Look at me! I can disfigure nature and you have to look at it, like it or not."

What about the regular Joes/Josephines that sit in their vehicles, engines idling, so that they can check their texts, keep their AC going and play their car stereos? I bet the driving populace (other than LE) wastes a ton of fuel, out of pure ignorance.
Ann Landers (harking back a while, now) told us an idling engine is polluting. I think she had that in her column back when we still had lights at Hwy 101. Why are so many people still unaware of the fact that an idling engine is extremely polluting? Maybe the Indie's article will help spread the word.

It's the other "nine or more" that we need to save, too. I don't eat crab meat and haven't in decades. Why can't the crab fishermen be made to put their pots elsewhere or out at times not in conflict with whale migration? But then . . .what about the dolphins?
I have never liked those who rape the ocean to fill their wallets.

This ban makes my heart sing. Long overdue.

I couldn't wait to sign that petition. But I hope the Supes will enact this ban first, as it's not always smart to leave things to the voters. Look what happened with State Water and Saving the Oaks up in Santa Ynez. Voters can be bamboozled so easily.

County Vector Control has an office in Summerland. Phone #: 681-4900. Go there to get your FREE gambusia (mosquito fish). Anyone with a pond should have some of these fish to help take care of any mosquito problem.
Just don't let the gambusia go/rehome them into any of the local ponds or creeks, as they are considered to be an invasive species. They are known to interfere with native fish procreation.
Also: Do not feed your gambusia. They will do just fine nibbling on aquatic plants/moss and consuming mosquito larvae.
