Here we go with this King Street thing again. Interestingly, I just realized as I was driving down King Street yesterday, that it was 2:32pm and that the students from Mission Hill were getting out of school (which must be what Kelly Newman actually is referring too)...well, bad timing on my part. So yes, the small section outside of Mission Hill school is congested with parents in cars picking up children, little kids running everywhere etc...just like when I went there back in the 70's. It didn't bother me, I patiently waited, proceeded slowly and cautiously, turned on my car lights (for safety) and was out of that section in about a minute and a half. No big deal. And again, no problem with King Street...life goes on.

Any candidate that would allow an illegal person to be offered up to win an election should be ashamed. It was disgusting and one of the creepiest thing I have seen.

I wish the dribble you write was representative of the intellectual heavyweights POV...Ms. Hudson's POV is that of a confirmed Dimocrat spouting their dogma.

Pathetic...

You are aware the recession ended in June 2009?

How colossally weak does BHO & the Dimocrats stimulated recovery have to be before you recognize the value of President Reagan?

The effect of stimulus has backfired:

Will Hahn, executive director, Dientes Community Dental Care

Well of course Mr. Hahn, you would support the fluoradation. YOU are in the dental field.

I am totally against it, I want nothing in my water that will cause harm or that is used in pesticides. That is just a start.

The people spoke and our ELECTED officials did not listen. Some were bought off.

Uncontrolled doses in your water supply. Uncontrolled. How this makes it past medical testing is simply amazing.

And it's affordable. Only a few million dollars after the first two years.

A "small but vocal group", including an overwhelming majority of voters on more than one occasion.

Exactly.

King Street is not dangerous. Around Mission Hill, it is hazardous when the kids are being dropped off and picked up, and it has been for decades. If a person is picking up a kid, pick them up 15 minutes after school gets out. Dropping off? Drop them off a little bit early. This avoids that problem. If a person is not picking up or dropping off, use Mission.

If a person is not picking up or dropping off a kid, avoid King near Mission Hill between 7:45am and 8:15am, and between 2:15pm and 2:45pm.

King Street is a parking lot certain times of the day. Since the Mission Street Widening Project finished, Mission is more efficient. Cut over at Bay, Laurel or Walnut.

I can't figure out if the letter writer is a People Power person, or a parent, or a new King Street resident, but King Street is pretty safe. Want it safer? Don't use it if you don't have to, or slow down.

The Lib response...biased.

That all you can come up with? PATHETIC!

Future Shock can do an Ostrich on discussing the issues, but escape them? NSF.

I surmise Future Shock doesn't even know who Bill Lockyer is, or what he said to the Dimocrats that run the Legislature.

Hint: BANKRUPTCY was the subject; another subject NOT worthy of discussion by the Lib kids. LOL!

From the Pajaro Valley Community Health Trust list of grants - Spring 2010:

Dientes Community Dental Careľ-$10,000 to support the delivery of dental services to low-income, uninsured adults from the Pajaro Valley.

The CEO of PV Community Health Trust Kathleen King has a letter in today's Register-Pajaronian offering the same old pro-fluoride talking points as Dientes Director Will Hahn in today's Sentinel. Yes, it is about money. If King would give me $10,000, even I might write a letter to the editor saying how great fluoride is.

The PV Community Health Trust site also shows a $10,000 grant in Spring 2010 to Salud para La Gente, plus $2000 to United Way, and directors from both those organizations were among the mere 8 (22% of the speakers) people at the Watsonville Council Meeting speaking in favor of fluoridation. Plus none of those 8 people were Watsonville residents. Shame on the Watsonville city council gang of four (Alejo, Bersamin, Rivas and Petersen) for betraying their own community out of loyalty to their fellow government employees - the county health bureaucracy was the main force pushing this poison down our throats.

How many nay-sayers about flouridation in our water have kids with rotting teeth causing them pain all day? The dentists see those kids in Watsonville daily, as they attempt to keep the kids from growing up into adults needing dentures for life.
Get the facts about the difference in the numbers of kids with major dental needs living in communities which have flouridated water and those kids growing up in communities without it.

My kids don't have rotting teeth because I don't have them drink Soda all day, every day.

So...poison me and my kids so those parents can keep on feeding their kids soda.

How about offering free daily doses in 30 month supplies and saving money while controlling doses?

Right, you make a great point.

dON is what most people call a Troll, with nothing new to say, ever.

Democrats bad, Republicans good. Citing articles all over the web which is obviously where he gets his opinions, not from thinking for himself.

If he thought for himself, he'd realize that republicans and democrats are the SAME people.

But he doesn't, same Trolling every day.

So true and while shes entitled to her own opinion she isn't entitled to her own facts. Too bad bho hasn't taken a page out of John F. Kennedy's play book and man up. Kennedy inherited a huge mess and he never once complained. He asked for the job and he manned up. bho has added to the mess he inherited big time and continues to blame anyone right of center. A Statesman he is not.

Hey numb-nuts! Flouride ions at 1 part per million (1 PPM) has been medically tested and found to be the optimum for ensuring a safe greatly effective means to supress tooth decay in maturing infants through childhood! This fact is substantiated by numerous long term studies. A majority of misinformed voters doesn't change the facts Lib!
