Covering civic issues, news, and the secret life of Encinitas
And no way to get from the east side of the 101 to the beach side.
May 22, 2020 - the day the dicks disappeared.
Blakespear Needs to go away now!!!! She continues to ruin our City
Seriously hasn’t everyone had enough of Blakespear? Vote in Julie Thunder as ANYONE would be better than this social engineering oddball.
Marco and his band of evil marxist political operatives no doubt part of this conspiracy
This project is a nightmare that gets worse by the day. Too many hands in the pot maybe. Or maybe it's intentional. I cringe to think about what traveling on this road is going be like on a busy summer weekend and feel sorry for the people who will have no choice.
I don't know Julie Thunder, but I'm sure as hell going to vote for her. I'm done with Blakespear!
ABC...Blakespear constantly supports bad decisions for Encinitas. Blakespear stands for increased homeless, increased homeless crime, increased density, increased traffic, increased pollution, increased crowds at beaches, increase carbon footprint.Blakespear is worse than Jerome StocksBlakespear is bad for Encinitas.ABC
If you are on the Solana Beach Rail Trail going North how do you get to the West side of 101 to continue your walk? Where is the Encinitas Rail Trail from Chesterfield to Solana Beach?
EU has descended into sad partisan hack territory.
Yes, because flagging dangerous designs is a partisan issue.
I was referring to the childish headlines that ascribe the actions of a five member council to one person.Hack.
If you don't think one person is pulling the other four's strings, then you have your head in a severely dark place.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but did other council members' spouses actively campaign for this idiocy? Did other council members' spouses get in social media arguments with everyone who tried to inject a little common sense into the project?Have other council members gleefully celebrated the project in their newsletters?This was a Blakespear pet project pure and simple.
At your job, with the decisions you make, do your colleagues care what your wife thinks, or do they hold you accountable?Pretty sexist to suggest that a woman's professional decisions are a reflection of what her husband thinks.
Pretty accurate to say that that's exactly went down here, 7:17. Word is JB won't ride near cars so the hare-brained design was created by him and professional staff to make him feel safe.Whoops, how'd that work out for ya, Catherine?

In other action Wednesday night, May 20, the council agreed:To reduce speed limits along the southern portion of Coast Highway 101 to improve pedestrian and cyclist safety. The speed limit will be lowered from 45 mph to 40 mph from K Street to Chesterfield Drive, and from 45 mph to 35 mph from Chesterfield Drive to the Solana Beach city limits.
Is that an active bus stop on that route, how would you get there safely without the current striping?
There used to be a bike lane without barriers so bicycles could safely go around pedestrians.
Right, but you still have to walk to get there. I've always thought they should move that one.
Dennis C good question. Wouldn't it have made more sense to continue the SB trail up the East side of the 101 and cross the street at Las Olas?? There is space for it on land on the East side. Does this pretty much boil down to an excuse to remove all the parking on the West side of the 101 for cyclists? The quality of life in Enshititas has really plummeted.
All of these issues came up well before Blakespear deemed herself smart than every other pedestrian and bicyclist design expert and proved her ignorance. The bike coalitions and hundreds if not thousands of pedestrians and bicycle advocates did not support the plan. That should tell you something. The people that did support it, just supported doing something to improve the existing condiditons becuase they suck so bad but I doubt they though they were supporting a plan to make unsafe conditions. Blakespear ignored all the comments from bike and ped advocates and professional road designer and supported this severely flawed plan. Now she is held accountable for the injuries (so sad for all families and the needless pain and suffering, and the huge payouts in lawsuit claims.I voted for Blakespear in the past. I thought she stood for Active Transportation and community quality of life. I am sorry Encinitas I failed you and I promise i will not fail you again.What she stands for increased homeless, increased homeless crime, increased density, increased traffic, increased pollution, increased crowds at beaches, increase carbon footprint, and lower quality of life for all existing residents.Blakespear is worse than Jerome StocksBlakespear is bad for Encinitas.ABC
Sorry, I pushed send without editing. Below is my edited version. All of these issues came up well before Blakespear deemed herself smarter than every other pedestrian and bicyclist design expert and proved her ignorance. The bike coalitions and hundreds if not thousands of pedestrians and bicycle advocates did not support the plan. That should tell you something. The citizens that did voice support it were just supporting doing something to improve the existing conditions considering the existing road conditions were so deadly but I doubt they thought they were supporting a plan to make the conditions worse.Blakespear ignored all the comments from bike and ped advocates and professional road designer and supported this severely flawed plan.

WC Varones is an official, bonafide, and certified Tea Party hack:http://www.theslobs.org/About/default.aspxYou know it’s an authentic Tea Party site, because they spell Varones two different ways.
You are so clueless. I think the appropriate term would be dumb=ass.
Ha. Good one. 9:52You sound like one of those stupid Blakespear supporters that thinks they are doing good when in actually you are supporting:increased homeless,increased homeless crime,increased density,increased traffic,increased pollution,increased crowds at beaches,increase carbon footprint, andlower quality of life for all existing residents.So sad people do not try and use their brains. Remember common sense is a good thing. -Encinitas Voter.
12:24 / jeffPlease present your "increased homeless crime" statistics. You're not credible.
BS- 12:24- You are FOS. Everyone sees all the bums hanging around after Blakespear announced to the world that Encinitas welcomes the homeless with open arms, free food and free living at the beach with super freindly easy-pickins locals. Blakespear opened the flood gates and now all you need to do is see all the weird crappy crap and gross things that happen by going to next doors and hearing about all the crap that went down last week. Blakespear is bad for Encinitas. She is worse than Jerome Stocks.
Except we've had a homeless problem in Encinitas and So Cal long before Blakespeare was in office...
7:06- We had a very minor problem. OC and LA had major problems. Now with Blakespears open call to the world's homeless, we have Major problems.Free drug haven living at the beach. Next on Blakespears program will be free needles exchange program and free methadone clinics for the poor helpless homeless. Thanks Blakespear. We neighbors on Saxony really love what you have done with our neighborhood. You are really great if you love sketchy shit every night!Blakespear is worse than Jerome Stocks.
7:04 is Jeff. What a dope. And you suck at surfing.
9:25 - You must be either a girl or Barney or both.Who cares if I surf or suck at surfing? and I am not Jeff. Focus on the fact that our Mayor is doing bad things to our nice town. Anyone but Catherine in November.ABC
City made "improvements" and needs to have some place for people to walk as in ADA requirements.
Yup thats what all the bicycle and pedestrian advocates told Blakespear when this was infront of City Council. Blakespear never listens. Her mind is made up months before any item gos on the City Council agenda. Blakespear is bad for Encinitas. Blakespear is worse than Jerome Stocks. Anyone But Blakespear in November.
Write the Coastal Commission and tell them that the city prohibits walkers along the 101.
I saw five close calls with pedestrians and bikes near misses in the "new" protected bikelanes in Cardiff. The pedestrians think it's a safe walkway until their toddler gets mowed down down by a 150 lbs drunk chick beach cruiser going 20 miles per hour downhill on her bike. There is going to be soooo many senseless injuries from this bad design endorsed and promoted as great by Blakespear. Get ready Scripps Encinitas for the head trauma toddler victims. And get ready Encinitas tax payer for the millions and millions of pay out$ to the victims.

Has anyone noticed the dead ballfields the City Of Encinitas has let go for the last 10 weeks? Way to give the younger generation hope! Let the SDA baseball fields grow weeds and basically let the entire field die. Next thing they're going to say is they are saving water. F you asshoes. Excuse my while I click on the Enc Votes site and LMAO at screaming karens complain abot how families at ECP are letting their toddlers play on the monkey bars and how someone should call 911. Time for screaming karens to be euthanized. The world would be better - do same to Enc Chokes.
Missed the monkey bar discussion (if there ever was one) and could do without the labels, 12:59.Want some insight into the mayor's mind? Her Cardiff School Board email exchange is now posted for your viewing enjoyment. Best part is her getting schooled by the school.
On Encinitas Votes in case it wasn't clear. Good times.
One more time...Karen is a colloquial term that is used to typify a person perceived to be entitled or demanding beyond the scope of what is considered appropriate or necessary. One of the most common Karen stereotypes is that of a white middle-aged woman, typically American, who displays aggressive behavior when she is obstructed from getting her way; such women are often depicted as demanding to "speak to the manager" and sometimes have a variation of the bob cut.The Karen archetype carries several stereotypes that are common to "basic white women"; the most notable is the stereotype that a Karen will demand to "speak with the manager" of a hypothetical service provider. Further common stereotypes associated with the Karen pejorative include anti-vaccination beliefs, racism against black people, use of Facebook and a bob haircut with blonde highlights—pictures of Kate Gosselin during the airing of Kate Plus 8 were used in earlier memes about a "can-I-speak-to-your-manager haircut", and continue to be used in Karen memes—engagement in multi-level marketing schemes, and Facebook posts sharing trite motivational messages.
Snore, 6:17. Just say "entitled and aggressive Catherine Blakespear." No need for a snore fest. You're welcome.
Quote from Reagan: “If you're explaining, you're losing.”
Just put "I hate all women".....Here's another Reagan quote.."They (the South African government) have eliminated the segregation that we once had in our own country . . . "
To 6:17's point, "Karen" sounds like Marco Gonzalez except that in addition to bitching and whining, he calls people racist and threatens to sue.
MArco's over on Encinitas Votes duking it out with Pam Slater....
Baseball field outrage poster... not sure you understand that the City does not have anything to do with SDA's fields. That's a school district issue. City ball fields at the Y and Leo Mullen have been taken care of the whole time! Buy a clue with your Trump check!
Is it legal to tell pedestrians that they are prohibited to walk along a road that has no place for them to walk and has been turned into a bicycle highway? Highway 101 is the means to get from one city to the next city such as Solana Beach and then to Del Mar for anyone.
There was one. I hate myself for reading that group due to the fact that after reading close to 90% of the time I find myself completely discouraged about the current state of peoples intelligence.Label:a word or phrase used with a dictionary definition to provide additional information Labels are certainly necessary in this histrionic day and age we find ourselves in. They are becoming much like fablesFable:a short story, typically with animals as characters, conveying a moral.Now, the current state of the City of Enc could even be described as a Fabliau. Study that word a bit and maybe you'll agree.In this particular context it applies to certain and maybe all decisions by many of the current local leaders recently.One for instance would be the Mayors email you speak of.The kind of man (or woman) who wants the government to adopt and enforce his ideas is always the kind of man (or woman) whose ideas are idiotic...H.L. MenckenAs opposed to fables
There never has been anything there. It only has paint. Which might help on your way into damnation alley. Bizarre how much money goes into Delmar Salona Beach Encinitas Etc. And it's weeds in between.
100,000 Covid-19 deaths. Where is the outrage? It's crickets. But look at this fucking sign!
2.8 Million deaths in the USA ever year those 100,000 are part of that number. Now what's your outrage again??
12:29 - for real. It's such a small percentage of our country. It's only about twice the number of those dummies who died fighting in Vietnam. But this sign, now that really makes my blood boil. Why can't I cross the fucking street where I want!
10 people die every year on the railroad tracks, no outrage there. Again I ask, what's your outrage??
12:29 Get lost, you loser. What kind of person are you? A sick individual that probably needs mental help.
sorry 12:29 the above post was directed at !:25. The sicko that thinks those that died fighting for their country in Vietnam are dummies. He has to be a democrat because they are the only people that resort to name calling when they have no other facts.
Democrat? No. I am Republican. I watched the boys get sent to Vietnam. The working class, the underclass, the blacks and latinos. The working capital stock. I kept my boys home.
People die every day, from all sorts of causes, some preventable, some not. No outrage, its just the way it is.Get over it.Data are for the U.S. 2019Number of deaths for leading causes of death Heart disease: 647,457 Cancer: 599,108 Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936 Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201 Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383 Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404 Diabetes: 83,564 Influenza and pneumonia: 55,672 Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome, and nephrosis: 50,633 Intentional self-harm (suicide): 47,173
The monthly rate of COVID deaths is greater than #1 on this list.
"Lies, damned lies, and statistics"
Many people attribute that quote to Mark Twain, but it was actually first written by Sir Joseph Chamberlain, in his diary. He was writing about a radical challenge to Whig control of the Liberal Party in the 1870s, and was touted as a future prime minister, although his aspirations to higher political office were effectively terminated in 1885 after a notorious and well-publicized case of butt-sex with a young prostitute in the basement of Trinity Hall at Cambridge.
I’m so glad the Trump bimbo and fake doctor’s wife is on her way out, and that the County Board of Supervisors will be under the control of rational people who trust in science and have compassion for immigrants. Primary voters skew Republican. Even with that advantage, the Democrats in the race earned 57% of the vote. Barbie got 43%.Say buh-bye to Sup Barbie.
I have compassion for illegal immigrants as long as they stay in their country.
The greed wing of the GOP lured them here for cheap labor.
Republicans are mostly self serving asshoe.But the reality of the matter is if you want to have any chance of a better life for you or your children you must vote for R because D is for destruction and it's become the party of complete and total destruction. Just take a gander at some of the CA D's. Complete and total Destruction
Actually CA is doing just fine. We have the largest economy of any state, and among the highest growth rates. We have fostered innovation that’s created tons of good paying jobs and trillions in shareholder value. There’s a reason California is the home of the personal computer, the smartphone, the internet, the mass market electric automobile, the self-landing rocket, rapid DNA sequencing, targeted gene therapies, the movie and entertainment business, the best universities on earth. Not to mention, California is produces and sells more agricultural products than any other state by miles. Without CA subsidizing moocher red southern states, they’d be even more ignorant, poor, and racist hellholes than they already are.

Dude the corona bros are like little russian bots...We know these folks want nothing more than continued sickness, disease, covid infections and deaths for the masses but mostly nursing and long term care home deaths because to them it's fun and a game and maybe just maybe they can prolong the lock em downs and hysteria and collapsing economy long enough to just maybe get their racist dementia ridden candidates to win in November!
