The Samoa Project Ad Hoc Committee Does Their Homework

For the record, the Fresh and Easy exceptions to the FBCSP were unopposed at yesterday's hearing; for those who keep track of such things, this is the oversized signage. That was the only Fresh and Easy item on the agenda. The Fresh and Easy Bill AB 183 was signed into law recently by Governor Brown and Fresh and Easy will have to comply by adding manned checkouts to its design. And while the welcoming committee gladhanded and backpatted at the hearing,  community members juggled countless other responsibilities like diligent and in-depth research on the community opposition to the Samoa Project. The next meeting on this more current hot topic will be held at Sunland Tujunga's North Valley City Hall this coming Monday, October 24th at 7:30 pm at 7747 Foothill Boulevard in Tujunga 91042.

There has never been any reason to believe that F&E would not be coming to Tujunga. And now they will hire a checker to be on duty during all business hours. That makes me very happy.

Personally, I dislike self checking. It reminds me of the days when you used to pull up to a service station and got your oil, water, and air checked, your windows washed, and your tank filled for the price of the gas. But the price of gas climbed up as the service declined, and you know what happens at the gas station today - no service and you have to walk inside to pay if you have cash. And if you are lucky the machine that takes quarters to supply you air or water is working.

I'll take a real live person helping me every time.

So welcome F&E and good luck to the Farmer's Market. I hope you can handle the competition. And that goes for you, too, Albertson's.
