    A heads-up for Harris... the people in Fairfield (who fall within a neighboring Air Quality Management District) are up in arms about the tyranny their District is imposing on them regarding "no burn" restrictions on home fireplaces and woodstoves. Nearly every day for a month, the people in Fairfield who have already bought wood or pellets they can't burn must pay more and more to PG&E... not because they want to, but because their Air Quality Management District threatens them with massive fines for not complying with their edicts. That is absolute tyranny, Ms Harris. My suggestion to you is to make sure that tyranny doesn't come to Vacaville.

    Not to mention the Air Quality Resources Board. You know those Goose stepping N_zis. This is breezy Solano County, the home of the Southerly (Most times) Suisun Breezes. Lumping us in with Fremont, Oakland, San Jose, San Fran's, etc. etc. air is totally INSANE, IMO!!!!! The best solution Ms. Harris, would be to get all of Solano county EXCLUDED from those tyrants, since many many more of us are on IGNORE, IGNORE, IGNORE, and that includes paying one red cent to them, EVER!!!!!!!! Mike K. of this paper had a good compromise idea, "Monitor our air quality locally," Do not lump us in with the rest of the East, South Bays Cities. The more you do, the more your tyrannical bunch of bureaucrats will be IGNORED!!!!!
