Mr. Solvang, look no further than Santa Maria Energy's prospectus that was circulated to potential investors. I saw it numerous times before it mysteriously disappeared a short time ago. They claimed leases had been procured for areas that could support up to 7000 wells. Just one company gets you to 70% of the 10,000 wells in question. And why has that prospectus been scrubbed of any reference to the 7000 well potential? Duh.
On Big Oil Wins over <em>Indy</em>

Davey, you are only partially right. Mine is a very rational disdain( hate too strong) for CalTrans planning based upon decades of watching them make blunder after blunder. My earliest horrific experience with them was watching them needlessly and callously wipe out one of our best surfing beaches. The saga of Stanley's is a sad and infuriating example of abysmal planning that permanently eliminated a beautiful, popular, much needed recreation area. Thousands of tons of boulders piled out to sea to create an offramp because an oil company did not want their entry altered. When you take the southbound offramp to Hwy. I south of SeaCliff you are driving over Stanley's. It could have easily been saved but CalTrans didn't give a damn and we didn't know how to fight. Now look at the new bike lane enclosure they have installed south of Rincon. Access to the beach along that stretch, used for years by hundreds of people daily , has been eliminated. Technically, there are maybe twenty parking spots now where there were hundreds before. Beach goers get screwed again. Schneider is standing up for city traffic interests and you build baby build types are just giving her rightwing opposition fodder for their cannons. As if Andy Caldwell needed anything more to bitch about.
On Mayor Blasted for Alleged Conflict-of-Interest

I'm all for the county split. Revenue studies have shown that noco can't sustain itself without leaning on the soco tax base. I'm all for cutting the umbilical cord, especially before we get suckered into financing the new jail that will house all their noco homeboys.

No wonder you call yourself get a clue. County road maintenance funds will be zeroed out for about 10 years because of the unholy agreement to co -fund this freeway expansion. If you don't know that then you really do need to get a clue?

Dr. Imperato, you wouldn't be a geologist who makes a living off more oil drilling would you?

Yeah , so Doc, I said lefts are out . End of conversation there. Got anything on county road maintenance ?
Posted on October 18 at 2:38 p.m.
Doc, left side ramps are out. We all know that the Caltrans Neanderthals will not let that happen despite the safety record and still not an accident at any of these fast on & offs since your band of amateur road building experts deemed them unsafe. On to the next item -the Caltrans plan will leave our county road maintenance revenues at sum zero for at least a decade. The Mayor is doing her job to protect local interests and gets crucified by the Andy Caldwell nut cases aided by a bunch of short sighted Indy road building "experts".

It's the word of the day, Doc. I also have used "the" & "and" numerous times. SFW?
