Vol. 24, No. 9

Oceano’s usually contentions political voices all seem to align on one thing: SLO County 4th District Supervisor Jimmy Paulding’s proposed civility contract is not for them. But that’s where the agreement ends. Paulding’s suggestion that the unincorporated community consider a future as part of Grover Beach stirred the pot once again. While some believe the Oceano Community Services District is perfectly capable of serving town residents, others see the district’s move to remove fire services from its responsibilites as proof it needs help. New Times Staff Writer Bulbul Rajagopal, from the Sun’s sister paper, jumps into the political fray [6].
This week, you can also read about why Santa Ynez High School’s principal is resigning after a year on the job [4]; a screening of a documentary focused on Sweden during World War II [22]; and the upcoming Los Alamos Flea festival [25].
