You can call your service provider, and register a 911 response address to your cell phone. If you have not already done so, I suggest you make haste.

On State Urged to Fix Fatally Flawed 9-1-1 System

No on 1. If it passes, your tax dollars will be used to repair the SF and LA water pipes, an expense most assuredly the responsibility of the rate payers in those cities. If it passes, it will further the criminal miss handling of water by the state allowing Bureau of Reclamation to accidentally dump SB water down the drain, mind your own business we know what we are doing. We actually have enough water in the state, it largely flows out the Sacramento River in the winter during storms. We need off stream storage to catch this water so that storage does not conflict with flood control. The two dams proposed are a start, but the operational math is flawed. Jerry is a liar, and we should not trust him. Send them back to the drawing board; no on 1.

People who are slaves to fashion deserve to look like clowns.

There is no form of life lower than someone who does not pay subcontractors. Run them out of town on a rail. Don't forget the tar and feathers.

On S.B. Contractors Shafted by S.F. Builder?

Comb should begin legal proceedings against the Bureau of Reclamation, sue them for being asleep at the switch. Meanwhile, when it comes time to vote for the State's water bond, remember how idiotic, inefficient and incapable the Bureau of Reclamation has been in this case and extrapolate to a case where the state is handling all the water. What a bunch of bozos.

Hey reality check, take your religion out into the world and do something about it. How about you start with volunteering at an adoption facility, or perhaps you could be a foster parent. What do you say?

In Placer County, the PCWA included in their emergency water declaration of April 11, 2014 a clause that new construction of SFR could continue but that NO OUTDOOR WATER USE at the new homes would be allowed until the emergency was lifted. Pretty progressive for a bunch of right wingers. Concrete trucks carry their own water by the way.
The writing is on the wall with water in CA now. Ever heard of sustainability?

On Appeals Pour In, but Montecito Has No Water to Spare

I would love to see the right wing religious anti abortion folks actually practice their religion and perhaps apply themselves to doing something positive, like adopting and orphan. It is always easier to complain than to work out and implement a solution. And didn't SCOTUS apply a 100 foot buffer zone for military funerals? And don't the justices enjoy a buffer zone of similar size outside the court?

On 'Bubble Ordinance' Not Yet Popped

The Asian Citrus Psyllid is a very serious pest that could lead to the destruction of all Citrus in the state. It can carry a virus for which the only recourse is tree removal and burning. Ironically, it is spread not by the fruit, but by the foliage. It is being spread by the cultural desire for citrus with "stem and leaf". If the bug is discovered in your orchard, you can spray, or you can remove your trees, no questions. Santa Barbara is part of the State of CA, and needs to take this infestation seriously, cooperate with the USDA, and not be the reason the bug gets loose. Neonicotinoids are not the only materials available for control of this pest.

Hey Jerr, How about pardoning a few thousand non violent three strikers currently clogging the for profit prison system and causing the redirection of state prisoners to underfunded county facilities. By the way, I think you are a liar.
