ADVENTURE GIRL: Vista Lago Adventure Park

By Courtney Haile ~

For the new Adventure Girl series in Tolosa Press I try new activities, push beyond my comfort zone of the gym, and explore what our little bubble of California has to offer. It seems dubious to write about Central Coast adventures without a visit to Vista Lago Adventure Park, located in the Lopez Lake recreation area in Arroyo Grande.

Grover Voters will Decide City’s Cash for Grass, Marijuana That Is

By Theresa-Marie Wilson ~

The Grover Beach City Council unanimously voted to move ahead with a ballot measure asking voters whether or not to place a tax on the sale of marijuana. The levy would include medical cannabis and, quite possibly, recreational pot use should California voters approve legalizing it in the November election.

“I think it makes sense that we do move forward to place something on the ballet,” said Mayor John Shoals. “I do want to make sure we do something that is fair and put that to the voters.”
