Art Brown I agree with carole mason. Illegal immigrants are easy prey for those who want to use andRead More abuse and control others. Enforce our immigration laws and cut off a source of potential victims.

Coastal Clean Up Day in the rain! Thank You to all of the Hardy Volunteers who worked sopping wet (Read More most of us were caught off guard and were not prepared to get so wet). Did you see the rivers flowing down the streets; we call that A Big Flush... Because it flushes all the litter from the streets through the pipes and out onto our beaches ( the same ones we cleaned up today) SO, if you can visit a beach on Sunday or Monday and help clean it up, you would have lots to do and we would appreciate it very much. You can go to www.pacificabeachcoalition.org and fill out an online form to record what you picked up. Happy Coastal Clean Up Day Pacifica!!!! Claudia.

I'm very happy to see this money going to our local, indispensable social agency - Pacifica ResourceRead More Center. It's vitally important that people make sure our city council continues Pacifica's very small subsidy ($83,000?) of this private agency, as one in four Pacificans now qualify for some sort of government assistance.

Let's hope this doesn't increase the number of "dependent" people and instead decreasesRead More that number. So far I haven't witnessed a grant or govt. assistance program that does. We shall see.

Fantastic! Pacifica is in desperate need of this.

This paragraph contains three errors in calculating the increase of homelessness: "In 2007,Read More only seven homeless individuals were counted in Pacifica. The number of homeless in Pacifica more than doubled by 2009 to sixteen, and then rose by over 600% two years later in 2011 to 95. In 2013, the number of homeless increased again by over a third to 150 – an over 900% increase since 2007." To calculate an increase or decrease over time, subtract the old figure from the new figure to derive the absolute change, then divide this number by the old figure and multiply by 100 to express the increase (a positive number) or decrease (a negative number) from the old value as a percentage. For example: in your report, the 16 homeless people counted in 2009 should be subtracted from the 95 counted in 2011 to give the absolute increase of 79 homeless people, which is divided by the old value of 16 to give 4.94, which is multiplied by 100 to indicate the correct increase of 494%, not 600% as reported. Similarly, the 95 homeless in 2011 should be subtracted from the 150 reported in 2013 to indicate an increase of 55 homeless, which is divided by the old homeless figure of 95 to give 0.58, an increase of more than one-half, not one-third as indicated in your report. To calculate the overall increase, subtract the 7 homeless counted in 2007 from the 150 reported in 2013 to get the increase of 143 homeless. Divide 143 by 7 to get 20.43 and multiply by 100 to get 2043%, the (arithmetically correct) increase in homelessness, not the 900% indicated in the report. A shortcut to making these calculations is to divide the new number by the old number and subtract one, but this algebraic simplification obscures the logic; unless you remember that one represents stasis.

They make it so too easy. I was thrilled that I could drop my cat off in the morning before work andRead More pick him up after work. The hours are great for working people. If $50/$60 is too much, checkout the PHS website for info on how to get a free voucher from the county.

Politically incorrect but ultimately true: Many chihuahua owners do not have the culturalRead More understanding that caring for one's pet includes reproductive responsibility (i.e., get 'em fixed!!) nor English language skills to learn from articles like this. We need an aggressive campaign for the Spanish speaking community to educate them about the tragic result of not getting pets spayed or neutered and to teach them responsible pet guardianship (they aren't disposable!) Until the SPCA acknowledges that there are significant differences in how pets are treated by various ethnic communities, articles like this one are just preachin' to the choir!
