Chumash marine sanctuary would be best for SLO County

I want to see the Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary designated because a marine sanctuary alerts us to problems off our coast and brings funding and experts to work on the problems. A sanctuary brings resources to bear to help with the solutions at a level beyond what we can do locally with our current resources.

Salud Carbajal chooses fundraiser over debate

On May 19, San Marcos High School put together a very nice debate that students had been helping plan for months. Almost all of the candidates showed up, except for Katcho Achadjian (he had votes, so we will let that slide) and Salud Carbajal, who decided to attend a fundraiser instead.

Führer Donald Trump is just around the corner

The whole Donald Trump phenomenon is a national disgrace and is making America an international laughingstock! The Republicans have contributed to it for decades by dumbing down our education system in GOP-controlled states, teaching creationism with science. Fox News has helped, too, by presenting a distorted picture of conditions, and blaming real and imagined economic problems on Democratic policies and the policies of that black man people elected as president!

Golfers should pay to keep their course green

Why should taxpayers subsidize the $500,000 deficit for the Dairy Creek Golf Course (“Dairy Creek Golf Course running out of money and water,” May 17) just because “the golf course has a shortfall of 142 acre-feet of water, which is causing the course to turn brown and prompting complaints from golfers of poor golfing conditions”?

Voting no on Cayucos fire tax

I am very concerned about the upcoming Cayucos fire tax. I am 78 years old and have lived here close to 20 years. I live on a fixed income and I barely make ends meet as it is. If this passes, I may have to go without some of my medications.

Eric Michielssen not paid for by special interests

This family will not be voting for Debbie Arnold in the June 7 primary. She has let us down by not committing to defend SLO County from the Phillips 66 oil rail transport plan and ignoring the wishes of the majority of the people by voting to develop the Las Pilitas rock quarry. She is just another Republican beholden to her special interests — certainly not to the voters of this county.
