Cambrian: Opinion

Cambria CSD shouldn’t panic at prospect of losing Jerry Gruber’s services

In reference to Cambria Community Services District Director Jim Bahringer’s “not tone deaf CCSD” Viewpoint (The Cambrian, May 12), I would like to respond. Mr. Bahringer agrees with the people of Cambria that public sector pay has gotten out of hand, while unconvincingly arguing that General Manager Jerry Gruber’s new contract is cheaper than the cost to replace him. Mr. Bahringer informs us that in order to retain our “high-quality personnel” and to be competitive, we must raise Mr. Gruber’s salary and benefit package to the stratosphere, retroactively, no less, to “keep him in Cambria.”

Cambrian: Opinion

Ireland an inspiration to the palate

Several folks have asked where one can find a plain brisket such as the one we featured on March 17 from Nancy Allen. She suggests Whole Foods in San Luis Obispo or Trader Joe’s in Templeton, where I saw some nice but expensive ones labeled kosher, for Passover. They may be available seasonally, so I am tempted to try tri-tip in the slow cooker as a substitute, but we’ll see.
