Why Reinvent the W(heel)?

No1

Riptide contributor Alan Wald has been checking out "No on W" logos used against other "Measure W" ballot propositions around the country. Alan says his top choice (above) for possible use against Pacifica's Measure W (the quarry initiative on the November ballot) "is concise, catchy -- and green." Alan notes that the above logo was created by opponents of the Measure W outdoor pot ban in Nevada County, California, last June. The logo helped defeat the measure.

If you've ever seen a street hustler playing three-card monte against a gaggle of suckers, you'll love the numbers game going on between quarry owners Eenhoorn/Heule and the City of Pacifica.

Pacifica City Council: Library Bond on November Ballot

Press Release

Really bad legal advice to Pacifica City Council forced a July 21 special meeting to reconsider the library bond measure (see city memo below). On July 21, council heard public comments (including a rude overtime diatribe by the head of the chamber of commerce that the mayor tried without success to gavel down), debated briefly, then voted 4-0 to put the bond on the November ballot. Council member John Keener said he would vote NO in November due to environmental and fiscal concerns about the planned site for the new library.
