What a set of screwed up priorities the County commissioners have... can't afford to help people with serious mental illness and medication problems, yet they can put $100k into upgrading a tourist attraction. I wonder if there is a projected return on investment for the $100k they are putting into the San Eli jail. If the investment would result in eventual payback, or even an eventual profit, I would understand. Otherwise, what makes the jail a higher priority than the community's mentally ill who are poor?
tired of the ignorance

I could not agree with you more. I am embarassed and baffled at the ignorance the Commissioner is showing. How does she sleep at night knowing she is funding an attraction while so many in need are going without. Shame on you Commissioner!
