    Thirsty McDonald’s

    In April, the San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors approved a minor-use permit for McDonald’s to open a drive-through in Los Osos. The fast-food mega-chain plans to open in the old Bank of America building in the Vons shopping center.

    Where’s Lois Capps?

    Funny thing about Lois Capps: You never see her, or hear anything about her, until re-election time comes around. Then she hits the road in her district like a vacuum sales lady: breakfast and lunch meetings, shaking hands, all smiles like she knows she will win the race — well, maybe! She ...
