I too spent many a blissful summer in IV enjoying the peace and quiet. The only bummer was that many of the restaurants like Serranitos closed for their well-desearved vacations as well! Who remembers the massive squid die-off on the beach?

Is the "pulsating radiation" emitted from smart meters any different from the cell phone you hold next to your head, or your wi-fi connection, or many of your electric appliances in your house?

Whine, whine, whine.

Flagrant rights violation? What right, to trash the environment? The Coastal Commission has a duty to balance coastal access with the protection of sensitive coastal resources. The temporary inconvenience is far outweighed by the potential for long-term damage to the fragile coastal ecosystem. If the partygoers had been more responsible to begin with, the County wouldn't have to close the beach in the short-term in order to protect it for the long-term.

This is one of the hardest things one has to do as a pet "owner." Jasper will tell you when it is time, and it's your responsibility to not prolong his life just for your own benefit. There comes a time when their quality of life just isn't there anymore, and they are in constant pain.

Lanny keeps spouting that “The bottom line is public employees have higher pay, better benefits, more days off, greater job security, and especially higher pensions than the private sector,” however, he never backs up that claim with any hard evidence. Hmmm...

According to the artilce if the Board of Supervisors opts to not accept the Coastal Commision modifications then the County "would default the county back to an 'uncertified' land-use code reality (something that it has basically been living with for two decades now), creating the potential for any and all projects in the coastal zone to be appealed to the Coastal Commission."

The actual situation is that the County would retain the existing Article II Coastal Zoning Ordinance that was certified by the Coastal Commission in 1982. Whether this creates the potential for any project in the Coastal Zone to be appealed to the Coastal Commission is debateable; the Coastal Commission has never asserted this position in the over 28 years that the County has been implementing the Article II ordinance.

Actually, isn't it better if Randy does plan to run for re-election? Otherwise he could be voting without any consideration of the consequences of his positions.

I'm sure he would have attended the public forums had he been invited!

I'm curious how many people voted for Das just to get his smarmy ass out of town?

Oh Randy, what have you stepped into?

Doesn't "legion" refer to a demon in the New Testament? And just because Prop 8 passed by a majority vote does not make it morally right or constitutional.
