Our Meglomaniac president, Ken Beurmann, once again bragged about what a super stud he was in high school. He played a video of himself, during his Liberty high school days, running a football 99 yards for a touchdown. Apparently he holds a record of some sort. Here's your ribbon Ken, you still ain't no Josh Sherley.

Answer: A stripper doesn't have to beg people for dollar bills.

Program

Our guest speaker today was District Board of Supervisors Chairman Phillip Peters.
 
In the time it took me to jot down his name his presentation was over. I believe he composed his presentation on the way to the podium. The fact that he's a millennial cemented that opinion.
 
But one thing came across was that he's a really good guy that cares about his District 1 constituents.
 
He took the position in March right before the pandemic hit. One of the big agenda items this year is redistricting based on the census report. What the supervisors have to do is comb through tons of data and move boundaries around. This is a HUGE task made much more difficult by the fact the State hasn't released that data and probably won't until October. Nevertheless, the Supervisors must submit a map by November. Phil told us all this with a confident smile. He's not afraid of a challenge.
 
Speaking of pinheads in our state government, the County is watching their tax resources disappear in the form of renewable energy.  "Stop oil production" they say. "Build solar farms" they say. Then THEY turn around and give tax exemptions for the land on which the solar farms are built. Basically, somebody owns a bunch of acres being taxed as non-improved land. Then they install a bunch of solar panels to generate money, but the County doesn't get to reaccess the property.
 

Meanwhile, in other news:

Vaccine supplies are up, while the number of people seeking out vaccinations are down.
 
Upcoming projects: The Hard Rock Casino at Tejon Ranch has been approved although environmentalists will be throwing road blocks every chance they get. The Aerospace industry is expanding. Kern County is quickly becoming THE place to locate Logistic headquarters and warehouses. And the housing market continues to stay strong.
Even with the mask, Cindy Pollard is easy to recognize.
Traco Matthews finally gets his swag bag of Rotary crap.
Despite the short presentation, Phillip received a first place ribbon. He couldn't wait to call his mom and tell her about it!
Jay Rosenlieb: "So this lawyer and a doctor go into a bar..." Dr. Shambaugh: "I've heard this one."
