We must act now to ensure a healthy, post-Diablo Canyon economy by removing obstacles to business creation and by meeting needs for work-force housing, water and transportation infrastructure. Apathy is not an option, according to San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Adam Hill.
I was amused by a letter in The Tribune on Saturday claiming that conservatives use common sense and not emotion when they vote (“At least conservatives have their heads screwed on right,” June 25). It is funny because that is exactly what liberals claim that they do.
Kudos to all the San Luis Obispo County businesses that have decided to no longer carry Justin wines in their establishments (“Several SLO County restaurants yank Justin wines after oak tree removals,” June 18). Hopefully the list of those making a similar decision will continue to grow.
Does Marc Thiessen (Commentary, “After Orlando, Obama continues to be in denial about terrorism,” June 15) seriously believe that the sort of attacks that occurred in Orlando and San Bernardino threaten the existence of the U.S.? Really?
San Luis Obispo County Supervisor Lynn Compton said that in considering punishing violators of an oak protection ordinance, fines may prove ineffective with mega companies like The Wonderful Co. (“Protests prompt SLO County to consider emergency oak tree protections,” June 21).
The Tribune’s June 21 editorial, “Supervisors must prevent the further destruction of oak trees” (June 20), is right on. Voluntary guidelines by San Luis Obispo County urging landowners to maintain these native trees is not working in some cases. The recent clear-cutting removal within the county of mature oaks on 315 acres is a good example.
Thank you, Tribune editors, for including articles from Tom Fulks. His column is as funny as his claims are ridiculous! A couple glaring examples from his June 19 column (“SLO County Democrats are strong for Bernie, but slow to rally for local liberal candidates”):
In his petty attempt to denigrate President Barack Obama, and at the same time chauvinistically declaring how we are a peace-loving nation, Michael Delbar (Letters, “What if Pearl Harbor were attacked today?” June 22) exposes his ignorance of American aggression.
