School bonds deserve support: Yes on G and H

    No, it’s not a good time to be asking voters for money.
    But for two of Tuolumne County’s school districts, it is a necessary time. With budgets stretched to the breaking point, the schools have no way to pay for needed campus maintenance and improvements. Help from the taxpayers is essential.
    Measures G and H, before Summerville High School and Sonora Elementary School district voters on Nov. 2, deserve passage.

Voters should reject legalizing recreational pot

    California Ballot Proposition 19 is also known as the “Regulate, Control and Tax Cannabis Act of 2010.” It would legalize the limited, personal cultivation and use of marijuana; legalize recreational use by Californians 21 and older; and allow cities and counties to control, regulate and tax commercial marijuana enterprises.
    This is not a well-crafted measure. It provides no structure, no guidance, no taxing mechanism and no upfront funding for cities and counties to regulate, control and tax marijuana. Even if Prop. 19 passes, the sale of marijuana will remain illegal under federal law. It will create chaos, confusion and conflict with federal enforcement agencies.

Budget reform via Prop 25 deserves support and passage

    In a perfect world — a world of reason, give-and-take, compromise and cooperation — California’s two-thirds budget requirement would work.
    Sadly, today’s political world is far from perfect and it doesn’t work. Now gridlock, standoff and refusal to compromise are the norm. Budgets are always adopted late, often adopted very late or, at least so far this year, not adopted at all.
