A recent tip to the Sheriff resulted in a raid of a Nipomo compound hidden behind fences made up of old garage doors. The sheriff thought they would find a cockfight operation and would shut it down. What they got was one of the largest international cockfighting rings ever found with birds and associated 'stuff' being shipped worldwide. This same compound was raided about 2 years ago.

Planners, in all their wisdom, created a traffic mess by allowing a local shopping center to have driveways and turn lanes arranged in such a fashion as to cause great headaches (and possible vehicle damage) for drivers trying to enter and exit these facilities. To 'solve' the problem, barriers were erected that restricted traffic to only certain directions of travel. This 'solution', although temporary, caused one business owner in the affected center to lose so much business that he closed up shop.
