Thanks RHS & JohnAdams for bringing a little common sense to the discussion. SME & the other drillers would have us believe that "recycled" water will supply their needs for 7000 + new wells. Isn't that a cute story? There is no polite way to say it - THEY ARE LYING ! They will pipe a token amount of recycled water to a couple of locations to have a good story to tell, but.....
It is not logistically possible to supply 7000 wells in totally divergent rural locations with recycled water by pipeline, and trucking all that water creates a whole other nightmare. These Slick Willies will out bid farmers, arrange shady deals with local ranches to buy well water and otherwise cause all sorts of mayhem in their in reaching their goals. I say no dice.

On High-Intensity Oil-Extraction Ban Headed to Ballot

I don't like the Tea Party or the far right faction that has hijacked the GOP. That being said, I think it best that we give Adam a little slack. There is no doubt that our government has evolved into a lumbering behemoth. He is right about the costs of our county labor force. Consider this from his recent letter in the SB View-
" The problem is labor costs. It’s not that we have more workers. The county workforce has actually shrunk by 5 percent over the last 10 years. The problem is cost per worker. Ten years ago, the average county worker cost $79,333. Ten years later, the number is $125,732. That’s an increase of 57 percent. "
Sometimes we have to listen to folks we don't agree with and I think there is some merit in his arguments about our maintenance liabilities and spiraling labor costs.

Mr. Fareed can thank Thorn for a number of votes that her ringing endorsement will bring him. Zero is a number, isn't it?

Jeesh ....this reads like a mystery. Will someone please complete the story that Mr. Hayden left so open ended.

Congratulations again to Becca, Katie and the army of volunteers who coalesced around this cause and got this truly grass root movement off the ground. An amazing feat !

My pet peeve is seeing cops flooring it all the time . We've all seen it ...following behind cops who floor it from the green light , just to be sitting there at the next red with everybody else. Obviously the pedal goes to the metal on emergencies , but not when they are racing to meet their buddies for breakfast at the restaurant. See it all the time. Who cares right? It's only taxpayers money.

What agency neglected power line maintenance this time? As happens so often, utilities neglect maintenance and the public pays the price.
Are we ever going to get the story behind the Toro Canyon fire in February that almost turned into a major incident ? SCE said they would issue a public statement after investigating the cause. Still waiting . Here's the link to remind folks how close we came to another Tea Fire in Toro Canyon.

You , Foo , should heed your own words. Thanks for the silly lecture about partisanship from the most slanted commenter (well ....except for the Thorns perhaps) on Indy pages.

So the proportionality of 4500 American soldiers sent to their deaths in Iraq by Bush lies warrants one sentence in Foo's diatribe ? Yet some perceived coverup of administration actions following 4 deaths at Benghazi gets thousands of indignant words? Don't like our leaders lying to us Foo? Jeesh , you must really be pissed off about the Valerie Plame incident.

Foo, I'm gonna start a petition drive to re-open hearings into the Downing Street Memo and also ask Congress to start an inquisition into Bush's aluminum tube and yellow cake uranium from Niger claims. Since you are so preoccupied with perceived administration lies and four dead, I'm sure you would support getting to the bottom of lies that cost thousands of American lives, right?
