Gee, this sounds like such a good idea. However, our own Democrats in Sacramento continue to let ourRead More rainfall release downstream and into the ocean. If we can't expect them to do their part, how do they expect us to do ours? Diana Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, lifelong Senators for the State of California are determined to save one little fish and put the rest of California in jeopardy because of it. I, for one, will start conserving (even though I always have) when our elected officials lead by example. The delta smelt, or whatever that little fishes name is, isn't above the crops that we grow in California. Take a drive up I-5, I-99 toward Fresno and Sacramento and see all the damage they have caused the farmers of California. As the old adage goes "I will if you will." Well, ladies? What will it be?

Of course it's down when the City removes funding from shelters and resources.Read More "Transferring" budget to prevention programs doesn't solve the main causes of homelessness in SD County (& elsewhere): 1) a 9-12 year waiting list for affordable housing [eliminating developers' requirements to BUILD more affordable housing certainly doesn't help] ; 2) no prevailing wage jobs ("working poor;" it's delusional to think folks can live in SD County on $8/hr.), and 3) mental illness. Closing soup kitchens and shelters just eliminates an initial point of contact to get them help.

Isn't Ocean Beach part of San Diego? I counted about 75 white seemingly homeless individuals, aboutRead More a dozen or so with dogs in just a short drive along the corner of Newport and Abbott. The truly homeless congregate near churches (aka) social service facilities where they are getting some help but who helps the churches? I unlike most of you have actually sat down and talked to some of these people and for the most part they are "homeless" by choice. The common reply of "it's better to live on the streets of paradise than freeze to death in the mid west".

It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

Of course the bicycle community are happy. That is their preferred choice of transportation. So,Read More they absolutely must shove that down everyone else's throats. If any of the people in the entire county of San Diego, would actually educate themselves on who is behind this, and where it is leading..they would be shocked. I am not holding my breath. Has anyone in California ever read Madison's views on private property, and the SANDAG"S views on NO private ownership (eventually) of automobiles? I didn't think so.

Thanks again T I L. Robbie, major legal battles have occurred following several earthquakesRead More concerning the explosions that ensue because gas lines burst. Then the house burns down. Then the owner submits an insurance claim on his fire policy. Insurer won't pay because the owner did not have earthquake coverage. The sun zone of American really needs to be solarized.

The Oceanside City Council is helping these people by creating two hotels near the pier that willRead More eventually pay low wages for cleaning rooms. They could have had in the past several years much better wage potential. They made it impossible for Costco to build a store at the old Drive-in land, they didn't want Car Country Carlsbad and the Mall. So we wound up with three (now 4) Walmarts, a Target and many other low paying companies. The eighth largest city in California should be able to do better than that. We instead get our money by ticketing people's cars that are parked in front of their own residences on street sweeping day. Towns like Carlsbad let them alone and just go around. But Oceanside, with their City Council wisdom, would rather make money that way. We don't want to expand our highway so as to draw a crowd, we don't want to create more roads (Melrose extension) to save commuters time, money and energy because it might upset the 2 or 3 people left in the city who ride horses. It cracks me up the way such a large city thinks so small. At least we have the weather and the harbor. At least our council can't mess with the former.
