Re: “April Fools, climate same, looking ugly, and more

"Greg" falls into that category of blind subservients; willingly led by manipulated data and the likes of quasi-scientists like the hypocritical carbon-squandering "Algore"

"California facing the worst drought in history" - In history? Hardly; ask anyone that survived and/or was misplaced by the "Dustbowl".

Ice caps ebb and flow--always have, always will--making Mr. Wark and "bv" correct, and you, uneducated at best.

If blind subservience and patently obvious ignorance foster regurgitative episodes, good luck keeping lunch down, LOL!

Re: “Trail Etiquette

Hallelujah!! Thank You Bob for your article on Trail Etiquette! I am one of those who ride horses on our city's great trails. Dogs off leash is a major problem. I do not go riding in an off leash dog park so please leash your dogs on the trails. Most people are very respectful of holding their dog as we pass but every ride there is usually at least one person who's dog(s) are running after us, nipping at our horse's feet and jumping on them. My horses are very good about not freaking out about these dogs but they can get irritated and kick and step on them. I can't believe how many people just let there dogs behave like this and don't realize what damage a kick from a horse can do to their dog.

Re: “Climate change: Deal with it

John is correct about the threat from global warming. Deniers are not. I explain why in detail at "Global Warming Denial" http://www.exponentialimprovement.com/cms/…

Re: “April Fools, climate same, looking ugly, and more

John Wark's "common sense" thinking to an issue for which it does not apply because it is dynamically complex. His "thinking" and obfuscation is a threat to life on earth. Similarly, bv is confused and doesn't understand the issue.

Re: “Trail Etiquette

Why do the dog owners have to pick up their dog's poop but the horse owners don't? Horse poop spreads noxious weeds (even when "certified" weed free) and attracts swarms of flies!

Re: “Gazette: concerns beyond pot

Excellent. I know that The Gazette thinks, "But hey! Others who agree with us in the first place are toats linking!" But that seems to be where the thinking on its part and its audience's part ends.

Re: “Revisiting Palmer's Vision: Right-of-way width

Sorry, the right-of-way is the legal area that is owned by the city. It can include all the areas that you referenced. It typically is the area where the street, sidewalks, public utilities, curbs, etc fall within.
Buildings are typically outside the right-of-way with exceptions of historical buildings where the building may have been in place prior to the legal definition of the right-of-way.

Re: “Revisiting Palmer's Vision: Right-of-way width

This article is entirely unhelpful because the author doesn't define his terms. When he is discussing "rights-of-way" is he talking about easements? Parkways in the middle of the street? The streets themselves? Bike lanes? It is so unclear that one cannot glean anything about his point.

Re: “April Fools, climate same, looking ugly, and more

I have to wonder what other obstacles Ms Mullen resents having to stop for on Cresta Rd, Elementary school picnics, preschoolers crossing at Argus for nature walks, the lights at Argus and Rio Grande? I would expect if horses are crossing Cresta they would be using the lights as any other person crossing Cresta would be doing. Bear Creek park has multiuse trails which include horses and has homes and property surrounding it which has historically been horse property.

I for one am quite happy to see a small stable rather than another housing development on unstable ground, which puts all of us as taxpayers at risk of another law suit fo permitting such developments, Certainly that would be a much higher traffic hazard on Cresta than a few horses

Sad news, indeed. Barney's served the best cheeseburgers made with Callicrate beef.

Re: “Pet project

Yeah, y'all got me yesterday! I thought this was true and reposted it on FB. After I did that, I realized, "Hey, how in the world could you have a cat park without some sort of netting at the top or something? Cats aren't going to stay in a park!" I'm 53 years old and still gullible. I'm not stupid, but gullible I am sometimes! It was a great April Fool's joke I have to admit! I laughed at myself for 10 minutes! Well played, Independent, well played.

Re: “Gazette: concerns beyond pot

Yes, we know the author of the Gazette's propaganda, Christine Tatum, as a prohibitionist shill for the drug treatment industry -- her husband is anti-cannabis crusader Christian Thurstone.
