The $CENT OF MONEY (KCCN.tv, 2011)
To the dismay of a few whiners, KCCN.tv’s Dan Blackburn released his 15-minute documentary, The $cent of Money, on March 21. The documentary covered the Los Osos wastewater project and some of its “really big” infrastructure problems. The last Los Osos sewer video to grace YouTube was “Crisis in Los Osos” by Insider Exclusive from November 27, 2007, an infomercial that covered Gail McPherson and her “nightmarish story” about the state water board’s regulatory abuse. Unlike the video from 2007, Blackburn’s 15-minute documentary focuses on issues that have been the subject of hot debate amongst the sewer politicos — and the fiery debate has continued even after the video was released.
On Blackburn’s KCCN.tv and Calhoun’s Cannon, the anonymous bloggers have vigorously weighed in, including a few familiar faces.

Tornatzky mooning the community.
If Taxpayers Watch‘s Lynette Tornatzky is any indication of the ignorance and cynicism that some residents have about the Los Osos wastewater project, the town is in serious trouble and may never heal.
On March 16, KSBY reported that the $189-million Los Osos wastewater project was unanimously approved by the Board of Supervisors. At the March 15 County Board of Supervisors meeting, KSBY interviewed Tornatzky and former Los Osos Community Services District director Julie Tacker: two people from different sides of the controversial debate. It was Tornatzky’s comments that caught the attention of Razor Online.

The Tribune is the worst newspaper in America.
The Tribune is known for many things, but journalism is not one of them.
In an opinion column titled, “It’s your right to be contentious, just don’t get violent,” Tribune’s Bob Cuddy, on Tuesday, again aimed his crosshairs at Los Osos residents who often speak at San Luis Obispo County Board of Supervisors meetings. The article itself was published on the very same day when residents talked about an item on the agenda: a resolution officially declaring the County’s intention to proceed with implementation of the Los Osos wastewater project.

Where has all the sewerage gone?
When people think of Morro Bay, they think of the beautiful waterfront community with striking sunsets over Morro Rock and the harbor. But many are beginning to see Morro Bay in a different light that is very unsettling and disturbing.
The Morro Bay-Cayucos wastewater project has become a significant source of controversy for several reasons. As we previously documented in The ROCK, there is undeniable evidence that the current incarnation of the sewer system is discharging untreated wastewater around Morro Bay. After years of delays, the City of Morro Bay decided to proceed with an “upgrade” to the system with a controversial contractor and severe environmental concerns and impacts (as indicated in the March 11 California Coastal Commission staff report that analyzes the project).

Gibson has dollar signs in his eyes.
That’s how 2nd District Supervisor Bruce Gibson has characterized loud and frequent public warnings from Los Osos residents that thousands will be forced to sell their homes and move as a result of average $250-a-month sewer bills to pay for the County’s wildly over-priced project – and that’s not just “speculation.”
Facts are Gibson’s nemeses.
