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.
On Have Idling Sheriff Cars Wasted More than $1 Million?

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.http://www.noozhawk.com/article/toro_...
On Investigators Determine Cause of Miguelito Fire

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?
Posted on May 9 at 3:41 a.m.
Mr.Thorn , again I ask -are the lies that the Bush administration used to justify invading Iraq of no consequence to you? Why do you obsess over an event that cost 4 lives , yet never once address the known lies of theBush, Cheney, Rice, Rumsfeld coterie that cost over 4000 American servicemen their lives? It's hard for reasonable people to take you and the Mrs. seriously when you exhibit such a lack of balance in your world view.

Proponents can whitewash the situation all they want with standard industry pr talking points. Truth is that job creation is minimal and water usage is unsustainable. It's a pipe dream to think recycled water will supply 7700 more wells. These drillers will find private well owners, discretely buy potable water and truck it to these wells. Does that sound like a good idea to you? Of course having vast underground areas contaminated with their toxic brew of benzene, toluene, xylene and other vocs will never be a problem either , right? If the Supervisors duck the issue, we can all have our say in November thanks to Water Guardians. Special thanks to Becca, Katie and all the other incredible volunteers who organized this effort . Well done!
On Fracking Ban Coming to Santa Barbara?
Posted on April 25 at 6:30 p.m.
Mr. Reality , one doesn't need to be an oil field engineer to understand the process. You cannot truthfully deny that millions of gallons of at least agricultural grade, usable water are not permanently used( lost) per well , regardless of the " recycling" that SOME ( not many yet) producers do. To deny that I would reveal you to be a great story teller.
On Sign Now to Ban Fracking
Posted on April 24 at 5:06 a.m.
What is shameful, reality , is your bs about water. With thousands of new fracking wells proposed for our county , water alone should be a disqualifier and that is before we even approach the arguments about the toxic brew pumped underground. And please don't respond with that worn out argument that recycled water will cover all the needs of these trackers. It is not logistically possible .
Posted on April 24 at 4:52 a.m.
Many thanks to the Indy and Matt Kettmann for such a comprehensive article. While generally opposed to the expansion of fracking and other intensive extraction operations, this is an existing, viable and profitable operation that returns millions of dollars of drastically needed revenue to our state. I say let it live .
