Lawmaker Wants Law to Ban Carrying Unloaded Guns Openly in Public

Ms. Sharma says: "The way the law is written now, a person cannot carry a loaded firearm, concealed or unconcealed. But he can openly carry an unloaded firearm. That gap in the law has spawned a movement called open carry". The "GAP" in the law she refers to is only our constitutionally-protected RIGHT. There is no gap Ms. Sharma, its called your right.

$1 Billion May Be Needed For Lines Tied To Sunrise Powerlink

Where would you get these 3 billion for roof-top solar panels? The bankrupt State of California? Are these panels going to work as efficiently on the foggy coast compared to the desert? I believe that companies like Sempra Energy know a thing or two about power generation, and they wouldn't be putting this kind of money in a project that is not viable.

$1 Billion May Be Needed For Lines Tied To Sunrise Powerlink

Ms. Sharma "forgets" to connect the dots in this article. Poor journalism or hidden agenda - we will never know. From what I gather, the extra billion dollar cost described in the article is a good thing. It looks like the power line will be used to channel even more renewable energy projects than previously thought. As far as the "unfairness" of the cost being passed to ratepayers, that is imposed by the State's target of having 33 percent renewable energy by 2020. The power line is just a tool that will help this target to be met. If this article was more through, it could have explored the extra energy cost that the 2020 target will result to consumers. Instead, it just bashed the power line project like KPBS always does without presenting a solution.

Sunrise Powerlink Project Faces Legal Challenges

What a selfish farmer. Can you imagine if everyone required a limitless vista around their house? There is a lot of potential for sun and wind-generated power in the east part of the state. The problem is that people like this farmer will never let the power flow to the populated coastal areas. There are always excuses, sheep preservation, etc. Meanwhile, people on the coast burn fuel right in their backyard to generate power (Chula Vista and Oceanside power plants). Shame on KPBS for not even touching the other side of the issue regarding the pressing need to change the way we generate and distribute power. If solar and wind generation will ever be a reality in a substantial way, we need a much better power distribution system whether you like it or not. That means a lot more power lines. If this balanced account was presented to listeners, they could make their choice in a more grounded way. Instead, all I hear is how this power line is going to negatively affect everybody, including the farmer who will have her vista blemished. Worse of all, the same folks that are vehemently against these projects, are the ones that ask themselves why we are addicted to oil. We are not addicted to oil. Everyone would like to stop burning fossil fuels, but people need a choice. This choice will not come priceless - that blemished vista is part of the cost.
