One Week in May

Good show today (Monday). Nice way to start the week, though guest Chris McSweeney got clobbered by the callers when he tried to discuss his campaign for District IV supervisor. It got pretty bloody. Nice guy, but I think he has to think his positions through a bit more carefully.

Some good shows coming up this week:

TUESDAY — the famous C-SPAN yellow bus will be visiting SLO and parked outside KVEC/Clear Channel at 51 Zaca Lane. If you’re a C-SPAN fan, c’mon by and take the free tour. They use the bus for remote broadcasts and it’s a school on wheels. Nice people doing great work. Also, we’ll hear from opponents of the Cuesta College bond measure and Judge Roger Picquet.

WEDNESDAY — We’ll have a little salute to cookies in honor of Mother’s Day. Also big-time author Susan Branch has opened a store in A.G. She’ll drop by for a visit. Also Mike Breenler discusses the recent Op-Ed piece in the Trib about Jim Gardiner and the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association.

THURSDAY — Tentative plans for Korie Bayer and Susan Mullin to respond to last week’s appearance by POPR. Also, we have a minister visiting from Chicago who wants to discuss the movie “The DaVinci Code.”

FRIDAY — 4th District supervisorial candidate Judith Wirsing. Also a visit with my Mom.

And we’ll put people on the bus for the Reagan lilbrary all week. Want to wrap that up by Friday.

    I wish I had known about the C-SPAN visit sooner. I just read about it now, and there’s no way I’ll be able to make it over there. Maybe next time. (If there is a next time.)

    The Thursday show will be good…anytime the lib-left identifies something as significant (like the Evangelical right and the Bible) they try to re-invent to fit their own personal agenda (and we all know what that is…(hate Bush-loves gays). I hope your listeners will keep an open mind. I know the evan/right has…can you?
    It truly must be asad time to be a lefty lib…well just sit back…next to go is Roe

    Jerry there is about 2 degrees of separation between your beliefs, backed up by your take on the Bible (which of course is the only true word of God), and the Taliban. Brett

    I agree with your assessment of Mr. McSweeny’s appearance on your show. I’m looking forward to Ms. Wirsing’s appearance on Friday. Both of these candidates, if you listen very carefully to them are single issue candidates. Their issue is growth/water. They also both attack the incumbent Katcho as being pro growth, and allowing growth to spin out of control. This is nonsense. Katcho has accomplished a great deal over the last 8 years as our 4th District Supervisor. Some of his accomplishments include:

    1. Purchase of an additional 10 acres of parkland for Nipomo Park and currently preparing a Park Master Plan;

    2. Through Katcho’s connections and working relationship with the donor, the county accepted a donation of 30 acres for a passive park;

    3. Improved the ordinance to remove obstructions in existing equestrian trails;

    4. Acquired $1,000,000 for the Dana Adobe and through personal connections brought investors to purchase 100 acres of land surrounding the Dana Adobe;

    5. Partnered with Nipomo High School to provide soccer fields for the community and to build restrooms;

    6. Found funding to build Avocado and Branch Roads to county standards in order to come under the county maintained system;

    7. Advised San Luis Obispo County to consider a pilot project to extend Willow Road and Build a Highway 101 overpass.

    8. Acquired several school sites through the approval of new developments;

    9. Created a strong advisory committee (now the South County Advisory Committee);

    10. Provided support staff in the collaboration of creating a deign plan for West Tefft Street;

    11. Allocated funding for and participated in several Nipomo Clean Up Days;

    12. Acquired funds to pave the unpaved portion of Sandydale Street;

    13. Acquired over $1.5 million in additional funding to complete the Olde Towne Nipomo Project;

    14. Completed ADA compliance project and remodeled the kitchen at the Nipomo Senior Center by allocating General Fund money;

    15. Acquired over $1.7 million for roads related flood control project, and continues to work in conjunction with the Nipomo Community Services District and Regional Water Quality Control Board staff to collectively address flood related issues.

    It will be interesting to see whether Ms. Wirsing will deal with the facts on Friday, or continue her negative jabs at an excellent supervisor.
