Talk Back: Medical pot, Sutter campus and health care
Yuba County is still fine-tuning its ordinance to define when medical marijuana growing is a public nuisance, and supervisors approved the introduction of three ordinance amendments on Tuesday.
If you call about a noise complaint, a barking dog, etc. the police tell you to try talking to your neighbor first. This issue should really be no different. Talk to your neighbors and maybe ask them to grow a strain that doesn't smell as strong.

I think the only way to solve the "grow" problem is to make it to where the plants must belong to the resident of the address and I mean live there not get mail there.
— Chris Turner
These supervisors have the wrong idea. Proposition 215 CANNOT be rewritten. Limits are not set by the MEDICALLY INCOMPETENT. This is done by the patient and then backed up by a doctor. And let the opponents cry about a smell, it is only a smell for the pete of sakes!

Completion is nearing on Yuba College's Sutter County campus and classes are wide open for enrollment.
I don't understand the need for a Yuba City campus. In this day and age we have electronic delivery of courses. And Linda is not that far away. Nobody has provided me with a convincing argument as to why we need a satellite campus in YC. I see this as another waste of taxpayer funds.
— Karen Hess
So, this bit of empire building is finally going to take off. Gee! Only five of the 80 offered classes are filled, I guess the need for more buildings is not as great as touted. Meanwhile, classes have been cut, and salaries reduced at the Linda campus.
— Michael Paine
At least the district did manage to eliminate one of the seemingly endless administrative positions which was siphoning funds away from academic programs.
— Michael Stone
The Supreme Court decision upholding much of President Obama's health care reform bill drew a variety of responses in Yuba-Sutter, some of them surprising.
Now that health insurance is mandatory, what will stop the price gouging that is going to happen? People like me that have to purchase their insurance have seen our premiums skyrocket already in the last two years!
What middle class? Does anyone really believe we will have a middle class to tax? Not just because of this newest tax, but the accumulation of the fleecing that Dems and Repubs have been placing on American taxpayers for the last few decades. But believe me, it won’t be the taxes anyone will be complaining about in the near future. No, it will be the fall in level of care we will receive from the hospitals. If you think you aren’t getting your money’s worth now, just wait.

The government touch is sort of like the Midas-touch; except the transformation treats us to a steaming pile of fly infested ordure. Now we’re supposed to eat it and like it... but I don’t like eating manure all that much. Perhaps, if enough Americans feel the same way, we can pry the government’s greasy fingers from what’s left of our healthcare system. Hopefully before the transformation is complete.
