Area Could Be Charming


Once-graceful State Street has become a Mecca for pan-handling bums. They clog the sidewalk, indulge in obnoxious, aggressive behavior and generally spoil the atmosphere of what could be a charming area.

Better yet vote out the liberal politicians that make their life in Santa Barbara so sweet—at everyone else’s expense.
