Weekly Poll
Do you think the Carrizo Plain should stay a national monument?

Absolutely. The Carrizo is one of the last undeveloped areas of the San Joaquin Valley, a protected habitat for endangered species, and a natural wonder for the public.
Yes, but I don't think it's as clear cut as some think. The Trump Administration should take a look at its status.
The feds should consider reducing the size of the monument.
No. The Carrizo should be privatized. Allow the market to tap into its natural resources.

Trust the scientists

By Mike Sassard - Paso Robles

I am not a politician, I do not have a Ph.D., but I put my faith in those who have put in a lot of study and are telling and warning us about our climate changing. They also do not have any ulterior motives.

I believe my eyes when I see a video about abnormal ice melting in the Artic and a polar bear who cannot find food for her young.

I can’t help but believe that the recent move, in Paris, about this by our president was a mistake.

We, including him, have these scientists for a reason. They do research and tell us what we need to know. That includes our president, if he will listen.
