Loon, head up the beach a way by the top end of Lookout--it's much worse there than at Loon Pt because that's where the open pipes are spewing. You can get a nauseating view of them at really low tides when the sand isn't obscuring them.

I was one of the "little" visitors to Lake Cachuma. I took my family up there many times as my kids were growing up. Was the highlight up there sleeping in a tent or a yurt and making s'mores around the campfire? No. Was it going on the lovely guided hikes through the nature center? No. It wasn't even fishing in the lake.The highlight was always Neal Taylor. We went on that danged boat tour so often that my kids even knew the punchlines to some of Neal's oft-told anecdotes. When he stopped doing the boat tours, we'd time our trips to correspond with his evening talks in the amphitheatre, in hopes of seeing yet another casting trick.
Our community has lost a treasure, pure and simple.

I have been a regular Priceline bidder for a number of years.When you bid on Priceline for a hotel in Ventura, CA, you are given four area options: Camarillo, Pt Hueneme-Oxnard, Thousand Oaks, or Ventura. These different areas are clearly shown on a map. When you bid for one of these areas, you will get any potential hotel at the star level or above that you've selected in that area. If you choose more than one area, you will potentially get any potential hotel at the star level or above within all areas you've chosen.If you do not choose Thousand Oaks, you cannot get a hotel in that area. In my experience, Priceline has been surprisingly good at fixing problems of their own creation. Assigning you to a hotel in an area which you did not check during Step 1 of their process would be an example of their mistake, not yours. However, the responses you've gotten from them suggest that you might indeed have checked that area--or perhaps all areas--within Ventura County. I have saved a small fortune using Priceline to get some good hotels in various cities. I suggest using the services of betterbidding.com to aid you in making your bids.

Obamacare was a giant step in the right direction. The plain truth is that universal health under a single-payer system is what this state and this country truly needs. If SB 810 passes, we'll all win.

I appreciated Mr. Ahmed's article and his POV. And, I agree with him. (Well, maybe not about the hot girlfriend, whom I don't know...hope that shout-out got you points, though!)

Dang. Stephanie Miller was a lot more fun than my morning coffee to get me going. I'll miss her bigtime.
