  2. I looks like these extra steps for all but a few people who want their names known is really cutting back the functionally and enjoyment of the blog. Too Bad. I used to be so much better!

    I guess the forces for evil win again.

  3. Yeah, I have a great smartass comment about skateboarders but I cannot make it now because I'm not anonymous anymore.

  4. This is great! Unfortunately, I will not be able to attend the meeting tonight due to family care obligations. After checking in on some of Mike McIntyre's previous work, he has a built some amazing skateparks. I would suggest to make model the park after ones like the Berkeley skatepark, the Glendale Verdugo skatepark, and the Yuba City skateparks. I have skated all these parks and they provide a wide variety of terrain to suit all levels of ability ranging from the beginner to the professional. I think variety is key so the terrain is not too difficult yet allows room for growth and challenge as a skateboarder. The terrain at this park could determine the types of skateboarders that come out of Encinitas. PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE, don't make it like the Luecadia skatepark as the terrain (if we can call it that) is so limiting. That park is really great for the beginner, but is limits all other skateboarders. Lastly, I'm assuming this will be of concrete construction which is definitely the way to go. Good luck and thanks for listening/reading.

  6. Mimilling-

    You are anon, as is Peter and Brian.....

    The only one not anon is Teresa.

    Its all anon. The only difference is all the extra key strokes and BS keep interesting and comical comments to a minimum and now the blog is half dead. The change is killing the blog. Maybe that’s the exit strategy.

  7. A 17-page CalPERS sales brochure told legislators a decade ago that a major increase in state worker pension benefits would not increase state costs, but annual state payments to the pension fund have soared from $159 million to $3.9 billion since then.

    The professionally designed pamphlet apparently helped build a persuasive case in 1999 for SB 400, which sailed through the Senate on a 39-to-0 vote and passed the Assembly 70-to-7.

    But now Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger wants to roll back pensions for new state hires to pre-SB 400 levels. The governor with only a half year left in office has said he won't sign a new state budget without pension reform.

    "The single biggest threat to the fiscal health and to California's future obviously is our public pension system and the crisis that we have," Schwarzenegger said in April as he endorsed a Republican-backed reform bill rejected by the Democratic majority.

  8. Lawmakers in Maine have found an unusual tool for tackling their state’s pension woes: Social Security.
