To frack or not to frack?

Dave Roberts

More than 30 wells in San Diego County could be using a process called “fracking” to extract petroleum products from far underground, according to a panelist who spoke during a frank and lively discussion I hosted earlier this month at the County Administration Center.

We already know that fracking is taking place in Northern California and in other states along the Colorado River, an important source of our drinking water. Yet, what effect fracking has on San Diego County’s water and energy resources remains open to debate.

Drumming up awareness for Convention of States

The federal bureaucracy in Washington is out of control with a rash of scandals and regulations without oversight and accountability. We have a failure of leadership and an oversized centralized government which have not been responsible to the voters. It’s also about time our leaders obey the Constitution…..The Law Of The Land.

Fortunately, the States possess the authority under Article V of the U.S. Constitution to reorganize the power structure and stop the spending spree and the power grabs by our government agencies and the Federal courts. Article V allows the States to call a convention to propose amendments to the Constitution with a single subject matter, “to Limit The Power and Jurisdiction of the Federal Government.”

From competitive pricing to unmatched customer service, EZ Cars 101 truly makes the car-buying experience easy. But what really sets the Encinitas-based company apart from other dealerships is its 90-day warranty on qualified cars.

“When you buy a car from us, you don’t have to worry about it,” said Karen Ventura, who co-owns the business with her husband, Gene Ventura. “When we get our cars through trade or we buy them from auctions, we fix them. We don’t want you to have any problems.”

Rant with Randi: How should we define ‘Student Athlete?’

Randi Crawford

Have you seen the movie “The Hunger Games”? The scene where Katniss Everdeen is paraded in front of thousands of people, with her long dress that bursts into flames while she’s twirling round and round like she’s on top of the world. But in reality, it’s all for show and what lies beneath is dirty and ugly. That’s sort of how I feel right now.

Kudos to Solana Beach City Council for providing great leadership

After mentioning how unsafe it was to walk dogs from Solana Beach, north on Highway 101 to the Cardiff State Park Beach, and south to the Del Mar dog beach, our City Council did not hesitate to act. The Council carefully studied the issues and then voted to provide a sidewalk from Ocean Street to the Cardiff State Park Beach, and to allow leashed dogs on the beach north of the Tide Park steps and south of the Del Mar Terrace. These actions will provide safe access for dog walkers to our adjoining dog-friendly beaches.

Help for people with mental illness

Dave Roberts

May is Mental Health Month, which the County of San Diego and many of its affiliates have observed through events and screenings.

In 1949, Mental Health America – a Virginia-based advocacy group – launched the observance. This year’s theme is, “Mind Your Health.”

Increasing public recognition and understanding of mental health issues is important. During 17 months in office, I am proud to have advanced a number of mental health reforms. And I am always pleased to support our mental health partners.
