Homeless issue needs a community-wide solution

    Some would be tempted to dismiss last week’s Sonora Planning Commission rejection of a proposed winter-weather homeless shelter for men at the Red Church Parish Hall as short-sighted, insensitive and parochial.
    Others might see the commission’s unanimous decision as the final word on the community’s homeless problem. And a few might be relieved, thinking that this uncomfortable, difficult issue won’t be aired again in public any time soon.

Housing ordinance concessions make sense

    The Board of Supervisors has reached a balanced and needed compromise with its amendments to Tuolumne County’s affordable housing rules.
    To their credit, supervisors earlier this month resisted building industry pleas to totally scrap the two-year-old inclusionary ordinance or put it on indefinite hold. As originally adopted, the law requires developers of 10 or more lots to make 10 percent of the homes they build affordable by families earning the county’s median income or less.

Prop 23 over-reaches – it should be voted down

    Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown, as anyone who has heard their gubernatorial debates can attest, agree on very little.
 So it is telling that they have this in common: Both will vote against Proposition 23, which would suspend a 2006 law (AB 32) aimed at reducing California greenhouse gas emissions to 1990 levels within a decade.
    Assembly Bill 32 is a major concern to many Californians. After implementation, it’s expected to cause an increase in energy costs for consumers and businesses.
