one thing for sure- someone he respects needs to tell him to stop posting on Facebook- its public and such self-serving, arrogant, junior-high-ish ranting, about the public exercising their right to speak. amazing stuff for an elected official......and to invoke the image of someone bringing a loaded gun...just astounding.

On Why Uribe Supports Byrne

Odd that Chris Meaghers article- and all the comments that follow- omit the fact that Salud Carbajal cast the third, and thus decisive vote on the issue. In fact Carbajals name appears nowhere in the article. Odd.

you know, Beachfan, your caustic bitterness displayed in your comments is most prominent- on all issues--- who are you angry at? the canoes project is a good thing
On Kayaks, Canoes Now Allowed on Lake Cachuma

this is outrageous- though shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone. Let's hope the County, under the guidance of Supervisor Farr, will take this environmental degradation seriously and respond accordingly. If not, let's hope the Coastal Commission can assert some jurisdiction.
On County Continues to Eye Bixby Ranch

Hate to break it to you Georgy- the "big picture" is that the County doesn't "control land use issues" in the coastal zone-and hasn't since the seventies. They are supposed to work in partnership with the CCC. So, as a result of the Board's action Tuesday- now, everything is appealable to the Coastal Commission. The county's own attorney repeated that over and over during the past few meetings. If anyone thinks a "bottom up" process begins with Amerikaner, Petrovich, Pacific Legal Foundation, etc- all of whom widely praised the Board's action- then they deserve what they will undoubtedly get. Mark this day as one on which right-wing property rights-anti-environmental regulation forces hijacked good public process and hoodwinked some otherwise progressive folks. Also note- in 1980, Petrovich was instrumental in getting the County to adopt the LCP that has been the bane ever since. and Bill Wallace voted AGAINST that one cause he knew what was being foisted upon us. Chalk two up for her.
On Wolf Growls

the biggest casualty in this whole, painful, years-long episode is the hijacking of careful growth principles by the right-wing- though in fairness- we- the progressive left of santa barbara- handed those environmental principles over on a silver platter- either by our silence or our deference to the loudest most intimidating voices on the left who were co-opted (sorry for the pun) by developers and their agents who knew that they would never win the battle for development of santa barbara by hitching their wagons to the right. so they found a way to get the left to hitch their wagons for them. and, here we are. a waste of years, money and good will.
On Tempers Boil in Density Debate
Posted on November 21 at 11:10 a.m.
too bad the county's decades-long defiance of its own LCP and attempt to deflect blame onto CCC staff has resulted not only in ridiculous hyperbole and posturing by the BOS, but also in propping up the profile of the state's least environmentally friendly commissioner-Dan Secord- on pg one of the Newspress. Of course he supports the county's defiance of its own coastal plan- that's consistent with his record on the CCC. For a real history of how these modifications happened- go to the video archives link on left side of pg at www.coastal.ca.gov , November 18 video, beginning at about 1 hr 20 min. a real eye-opener.
