Hey, why are the lobbist for Solano Co not working on this for us, to save our jobs and help put local folks to work? George Miller, what in the heck, why are you not on the phone to Washington insisiting that work be given to locals. Two other ships were already dragged out of Solano co and given to a company in San Francisco to "clean."

They aren't working because Solano Co is just another rotting stinking job loosing dark blue democrat hive! George Miller, like the rest of his extremist greenie global warming scam party, is LETTING this happen! Do you see how the jobs and money goes instead to the RED state of Texas? Meanwhile, I am sure the parole population of said county increased accordinaly with the revenue loss...

Enjoying that hope and change mah bruthers? Mmm, mmm, mmm!

Thanks for the work! I expect that the scrapping operation in Texas will now most likely increase capability to take as many of these from California as possible now that the door is open to do it.
This is great!!...for Texas

Our leaders have been swayed by the downtown VIB types to keep heavy industry out of the waterfront area. Why? Because it does not fit their vision of fresbie feilds and dog parks along with birdwatching. They would rather see section 8 booming and felons rolling into town because that's what happens when regular families are leaving for a better place to raise kids. All these negatives will work together to destroy this city. Crime+no jobs+bad school system+little city service+more section 8 + no vision= Vallejo!!!!!

They just put the ships there to let them rot.

So sad considering what Vallejo once meant to our country...now Vallejo is just rotting along with the ships.

Like Texas needs the money and jobs.

The middle class has fled Vallejo for the most part. I saw a post from side show Bob at VIB proclaiming that Vallejo families have to start sending their kids to public schools instead of private ones as part of the rebirth of Vallejo. Completely stupid.

VIB was never for or against it as far as I saw. Show me where they said something against it? As a matter of fact, they did an investigation of CA Drydock owner's current business (the scrap yard in Oakland) and they were impressed by his operation.

Its the feds you need to go after, George Miller in particular. What has he done for Vallejo?

Sounds like Texas is a place that would suit most of you well, why don't you move there? They aren't a liberal blue State, they execute people regularly even those that are mentally impaired. They also have ship dismantling jobs which I am certain all the hard working City of Vallejo employees that post here would take in a minute.

I thought you liberals were supposed to hate George Bush and republicans and Texas. And here you go sending our ships and jobs from the worst run state in the nation to the best run state, " WHY "?
Don't you think that some in this state could use the jobs, that business' could use the income, that some on your beloved welfare might get a job. Democrats just hate people who have jobs because then the dems can't use them to further their agenda.
Everyone must vote all democrats out, just look at Sen, Dodd and Dorgan they see the future and know it won't include them.

I find it a little ironic that the whole purpose of removing the ships is to prevent further environmental damage, yet we'll TOW A SHIP a zillion miles, through the Panama Canal, to Texas for this environmentally-sound dismanteling. How much gas does it take to tow a ship??? I'm guessing a LOT!! So much for being "green"!

Keep the ships local, preferably in Vallejo. I'd venture to say it's less environmental damage to keep the ships until the Mare Island operation is up in March, rather than tow them to Texas (which has got to take at least a month!)

Ah, yes... dismantled in Texas and not at the old Vallejo shipyard! Must be less expensive to pay transportation cost Out of State, then in State service?

Ha! Really really has it wrong. This absurd scheme to tow these derelicts to Texas is costing us taxpayers 3 or 4 TIME more than it would if they expedited the Mare Island permits so they could be opened and operating.$3 or $4 million per ship is being blown on this Panama Canal deal, when they would be dismantled at Mare Island for $1 million.

And we wonder why both the Federal government and the government of California are essentially bankrupty.

George Miller should be dragged out of his digs in Washington & sent packing.

I think Vallejo should loan money from the water fund to the company that is towing the WW2 boats from Suisun to Texas and not requre them to pay it back kind of like the transportation department. I think Vallejo should give another 3 million dollars to the Empress so it can lose more money and buy more out of date movies that nobody wants to watch. Vallejo should then buy new engines for the ferries and then give the ferries to the Government. Vallejo should make another bad loan to the transportation department. Vallejo can then place all the homeless people in the empty fire stations and feed them with a loan from the water fund. I am getting a loan from the water fund to hire a PR company to find a new name for Vallejo.

Vallejo has it's own problems distinct from the problems rising from national politicking.

The State has been at loggerheads for the last twenty some-odd years with Republican governors and a democrat-controlled congress.

California is truly a bipartisan mess.
