In case you're not aware, the land parcel carries rights as it has been kept intact since theRead More original land grants long ago, legally that predates any Coastal commission edicts. The Coastal Commission rules do not apply, and that has been upheld in court.

I have the solution !! open a Pit Bull defense training facility on the property. With postedRead More warning signs the owner would not be liable when the dogs chew up the trespassers. Win - Win for everyone. Maybe a wounded rattle snake hospital, hopefully none would escape, but warning signs would limit liability here too. Ha !

As far as Hawaii is concerned, there are many property parcels that have unique land rights thatRead More prevent trespass to the beach or some adjoining property. In this case the beach is not in question, only access through this person's private property.

Thanks for letting us know the goats are back!

Love it! No poisons or weed killers! This is the way to go for sure!

This concept really works. While working for the City of Los Angeles (30 yrs) a lot of propertyRead More owners (vacant land lots) used goats on empty lots for removal of overgrowth of grass and weeds. (City or County would fine them for overgrowth) A few weeks of feeding and company picked up goats and moved on to next lot.

Attn: Mr. R. Terry Date: Monday June 09, 2014 It is because of gamblingRead More that some horses and bulls lose their lives. When horses continue to have a losing streak the owner is not making any cash off that horse, it is off to the Glue Factory with that horse. If a horse breaks it's leg in the race it is off to the Glue Factory with that horse. Bulls will die automatically in a Bull Fight after the Matador sticks both swords in the bull's throat from the left and right side of the bull. So don't tell me gambling has nothing to do with your comment. I understood what you were saying. But these animals are going to be killed if there is no money to be made that is all there is to it. I don't like it anymore than you do. But it seems that way the ball bounces and one of us is going to have to catch and stop that ball from bouncing. The best.

The NRA and its gun loving clones are absolutely disgusting.

Let's not loose our heads with this terrible tragedy and jump on the gun control bandwagon. TheRead More first three were killed with a knife. In a perfect land of no guns I belive these killings would have continued. Once again reconizing mental illness was the key.
Vito Spago June 3, 2014 at 01:37 pm
What did the NRA do. I do not think the NRA has made any comment on the IV killings.

A couple thoughts on this article.... Can someone simply tow the poor thing a few more miles out,Read More lance it to relieve the gas and let it sink to it's rest. "several agencies to assess the whale's status and determine how to respond" -- Good lord, I think a homeless person washing up would get much less attention. And who is paying for all this ? All the animal rights people out there have no issue with multiple agencies dissecting and eviscerating this poor thing.

i agree

The whale has been ashore since yesterday afternoon - someone should get down here and remove it andRead More do the testing. It smells awful, and people are driving from nearby towns to look at it, thus affecting traffic. It is a sad sad sight and it would be great to know if it died of natural causes or was hit by a boater. I have called numerous times regarding seals etc and no one ever comes - the body is left on the beach to decay for weeks.

San Franciscans are ruining their own city. Do you really want to take actions to curb tourism?Read More Tourism that provides valuable tax revenue, income to thousands of people, pumping millions into our economy. I feel the same way about blocking buses in Alamo Square. These people consciously moved to a tourist location and then want to ban the tourists? Get a grip on reality and what those tourists bring to the city. Just like the whole "techies are evil", block tech busses and being against tech firms and residence. People can't get through their heads that these people provide tax revenue and pump millions of dollars into our local economy. The more people of SF do things like block major tourist destinations and combat businesses the faster they are going to move to the Detroit model of city planning.
Geo Kitta May 22, 2014 at 12:11 pm
I hear you loud and clear MM but in the same breath careful what you wish for as some of thoseRead More "techies" are the very ones likely to push this kind of libertarian attitude. Tech booms come and go and change is inevitable but as you say SF's tourism industry is a constant and will always be of economic importance. If people don't like the congestion in these long-standing tourist areas - they should move away from it.

In the area I live, not so famous as SF, people move next to a school or an open space preserve andRead More then lobby to get restrictions on the street in front of their house like resident only parking, no right turn from the main street to their street and no drop off zones. It's disgusting that this can happen when the taxpayers are paying to maintain these (not their) streets. Also, those destinations were there when they purchased their house and they bought it at a market price when those restrictions didn't exist.
