Hi Carl: DFW spokesman said that if State-hosted meeting, then State covers insurance for facility and the venue must meet ADA and other requirements. Pescadero has such a venue to meet those needs, but State thought only Native Son's Hall was possible venue. Native Son's's undergoing retrofits and other constructive improvements. State didn't allow time for the Church to confirm availability and rushed for Press Release. Turned out, twelve hours later, church was confirmed; however State moved to…
FMR will never be closed entirely by a state or federal agency. A Marine Reserve is defined only as a "No Take" area, not a restricted access area. The entire coast of California is, by law, accessible to the public. Unless an area enjoys special federal protections, such as military occupation in the case of Pendleton or Vandenberg, public access must be allowed. If you try to close FMR to the public, you might have a situation such as Martin's Beach on your hands. Public access has been established.…
"Maybe you could help clarify?" I do not see the funding possibilities by the county in protection for Fitzgerald Marin Reserve. Please note that she did agree (above) that the county won't provide money towards Fitzgerald. There is no "out-of-context personality conflict manifesting here," there is only my request (stated above) to Sabrina to provide solutions. I will admit that I find Sabrina's ubiquitous internet rhetoric annoying; as she is someone who has campaigned for a public office, and…
I don't see the funding connection, but if you do then go get 'em tiger.
The county hasn't money for coastside requests. Don't demand that it "live up to its responsibilities." Every California State Beach is un-(der)managed/funded, every National Recreation Area chases dollar opportunities, and most all of these cherished locations are overrun. But take a look at Pescadero Creek and decide if you really want a government agency, whose attentions focus anywhere but coastside, to manage the local natural resource? Review our MLPA zones and determine where they work or…
You need to present a solution to the problem.
This effort to protect Fitz MR reminds me of the La Jollans' efforts to protect the seals at Children's Pool:
It's a controversial effort:
and tensions are intense:
If you can't make the meeting and have comments to share that are related to Maverick's contest, Rich Gordon's office confirms that we may send comments via email: [email protected]
Word is the spray used this time is "Milestone," see the MSDS: http://www.cdms.net/ldat/mp77N002.pdf (defined by OSHA as a Hazardous Chemical, but by the Superfund Amendment & Reauthorization Act as "No Real Health Hazard." Please note all the special handling instructions for the product), and a little article about second-hand effects of its use: http://www.motherearthnews.com/Grow-It/Milestone-Herbicide-Contamination-Creates-Dangerous-Toxic-Compost.aspx
Laguna Beach, "Laguna" and its Canyon, aka, "The Canyon." All that other stuff was just being built in the 70s (Laguna Niguel, El Toro it used to be, now it's "Laguna Woods") and then 80s (all the other that you mention above). Laguna Beach was established in 1860 with the Homestead Act and is the original, plain old "Laguna." PCH went from dirt road, no stop signs, to paved road with some stop signs, to some traffic lights and pedestrian button crossways, to now mostly traffic lights. That's how…
Kevin: That's how it was in Laguna in the 70s and traffic moved reasonably along just fine. Pedestrians safely crossed PCH and summertime So Cal traffic got from Point A to Point B in time to make dinner reservations.
ME Retreats, LLC: If you build it, they will come.
Excellent graphs, Barry!
But guys, c'mon...the Maverick's traffic is The Worst, without compare, not even Monday through Thursday evening commute traffic crawls like this!
The better question is, Why do we allow for such an utter and complete shut down of our highway infrastructure so that residents must prepare to not leave their homes unless they want to sit in 2 hour traffic to drive the 8 mile stretch from HMB to Montara? Would Palo Alto put up with this for an Art Faire? Would even the City of Santa Cruz tolerate such stoppage for its own surf contest? No. They would not, and, these towns would provide alternative traffic routes, when needed. The midcoast allows…
The men walked off trail. Game Warden Foy called the lions "aggressive." Steinstra feels the need to point out that the most attacks have occurred in the past 25 years and implies that lions didn't earn their protected status because they were not threatened nor endangered. The photo on this news post looks to be more of a mugshot which furthers a representation of the California cougar as a criminal at large. It's a crime to be a mountain lion in our culture, with only a death sentence to receive…
Check it out, for your mountain lion sighting pleasure:
"Why do people in this area always dismiss mountain lion sightings?" 1. Determine if your area is truly considered "mountain lion habitat." Typically, mountain lion habitat is where deer are found. Deer are not plentiful west of Highway 1. Additionally, MLs prefer deer and other game to people. We smell bad to the ML. 2. Mountain Lions like dense vegetation and are better at hiding than humans are at detecting their presence. Mountain Lions are found dusk to dawn, but prefer the night. 3. from this…
And with the occasional off-leash dog on the bluff trail above, a possible sighting of a Golden Retriever? :P Sorry to be cheeky, but our California Cougar is seen less and less in the past 30 years due to their shrinking wilderness. A cougar could not cross busy Highway 1 without notice. When someone sights a tawny puma, THEY WILL KNOW its a puma. Usually these cats remain unseen, unless someone is prey. The attack provides confirmation of a "mountain lion sighting." We see more wildlife lingering…
Were there additional reports near airport, and across Highway 1?
I like the competition, but hate the traffic!
Shock! I enjoyed pinging June about what historical facts she knew along the Coast Road. RIP June.
