Re: “The Coastal Commission is Not the Enemy, Developers Flouting the Rules Are the Real Problem

Right on J A. I appreciate your honest and straight forward analysis of where the fault lies in this situation. In the past, I've worked on a building project where the front property line was improperly located.....concrete forms were placed, we were ready to pour. The inspector asked to see property corner stakes. We were five feet too close to the county road easement. Forms were taken apart, new excavations for footings were done, the building had to be re-engineered to allow a now five foot cantilever over the bank on the side away from the road. There was no slack or leeway to "let the project move forward". We simply followed the rules and got the job done.

Re: “'All Hands On Deck'

The concept of reducing organic waste in land fill operations and (hopefully) reducing methane emmisions from the decomposition of said material is worthwhile. One problem with large scale commercial composting operations, at least according to some information that I have come across, is that they are not efficent at producing humus rich compost which incorporates the hydrocarbon content into the soil but rather produce methane (which will be just fine assuming that said methane can be collected, stored and used as a fuel).

My biggest concern about this "mandate" is the fear of being individually forced to contribute to and pay for the operation. I can not remember the last time I put any organic material in the trash, any waste organic material that I generate gets fed to my flock of chickens that I am fortunate to be able to raise at my urban "homestead". It is my desire to continue to be allowed to do so.

If this program is approved, I would hope there will be provisions to allow people to opt out of forced participation and allow for individual on--site use or self--hauling to approved facilities. I post this in the spirit of acknowledging the need to address the issue of organic waste utilization and wish success to this project's implementation.

Re: “EDD Fiasco Takes a Surprising Turn

I think it is important to clarify that the source of the "fraud" being discussed here IS NOT being committed by legitimate unemployment insurance claimants. Rather, it is the action of criminal hackers who are illegally gaining access to individual debit card account numbers and then stealing the funds from the authorized users. A simple way to completely eliminate this problem would be to return to the good old fashioned paper check. Along with that, require any state licensed or regulated bank or credit union to cash those checks, with proper ID of course, free of charge.
