* Re: Frank Schillo's Ahmanson trial balloon:
I used to think Vince Curtis did not have a snowball's chance in Phoenix to get elected to Schillo's seat on the Board of Supervisors. But after reading Schillo's logic I'm starting to think he has a good chance.
While City Councilman Steve Bennett of Ventura and Councilwoman Linda Parks of Thousand Oaks are working hard on SOAR, an initiative to put huge land zoning in the hands of the public, Schillo is weaseling out on inadequate mitigation and displaying his ignorance.
Money can't buy open space that does not exist, nor can it buy clean air, clean water and a virgin upper Malibu Creek watershed; the watershed the Ahmanson Ranch development, in its current form, will destroy.
Only the higher consciousness that our few remnants of endangered habitat--which works 24 hours to clean our air and water--should be protected at all costs, will keep this a livable world into the 21st century.
