A complicated issue made even more difficult by the recalcitrance of many in the regulated community. We were supposed to have a revised waiver by July 2009. Unfortunately, the existing waiver expires today (March 31), thereby exposing every ag discharger on the Central Coast to serious legal liability, starting tomorrow (April 1). Only wish it were a joke.... Time to start cleaning up the water - immediately.

Fantastic news! As a Nevada City-to-Santa Barbara transplant, I have missed Citronee dearly. Can't wait for the transition!!!

Beautiful sentiments for a beautiful life. Thank you, Marjorie, for sharing, and thank you, David, for being. Santa Barbara will most certainly miss you.

The Coastal Commission simply follows a mandate spelled out by the 1972 state-wide voter initiative that was its genesis (and which was reinforced by legislation in Sacramento in 1976). It's a matter of the people getting exactly what they asked for (and a GOOD thing, in my book!). Kudos to the responsible landowners and agriculturalists on Gaviota (keep up the GOOD work!), but it's rather naive to think that Coastal Act protections have nothing to do with how SBC looks and feels today....

Thanks for shining a light on this, Nick. SBCAG needs to get its act together in a big way. Show some leadership! FYI, the Community Environmental Council is a great resource for folks interested in local implementation of SB 375.
