Was there any community discussion on these sweeping pay raises?

That's pretty slick how the department heads also received handsome boosts to their monthly checks. Wowzers!

Bill Brown better darn well earn that huge salary by stepping up his department's game considering all the negatives the past 18 months. Yikes!

Lastly, I wonder if they ever pay for gasoline in their personal vehicle, even when traveling on the weekends & on vacations? Hah!

On Supervisors Approve Own Pay Raises

Right now the RNC has nobody even close to vetting for a Presidential run. If they keep up the infighting, let the Tea Party continue to jerk them around & keep swooning over their "hottie" Sarah P., the Dems will have no problems in the next Big One.

Wowzers! The folks in Carp are going to get fleeced compared to their extremely wealthy neighbors to the north if these bond (aka tax increases) are approved.

Carp = $47 per 100,000 in assessed valuation
Montecito= $12 per $100,000 in assessed valuation.


Regardless how this is painted, it's more taxes. Granted, the heavy hitters in Montecito can easily afford this, so why not a flip flop?

On Two School Districts Asking Voters for Money

I've been completely undecided until today on Measure P, but my decision has been made.

After receiving more mail than I could ever imaging to vote No, & getting at least two calls per day at all hours from "opinion groups" etc. & quickly finding out they represent the No on P group, I'm voting YES!

As the days draw closer to the election, I hear & read complete lies & scare tactics from the opposition. This is complete BS, in my opinion.

If I am to believe these people, the firefighters are going to stop saving us from fires while the police are going to be too short handed to protect us all from the evil that's coming.

Again - complete BS!

My advice: When you receive a call form the No on P lobby, tell them you are indeed voting no. Then you know what to do next - VOTE YES!

On Dodging Measure P Oil Slicks

Regardless of what, if anything is ever built, SEPARATE BIKE LANES need to be a key part of the final solution.

There are just far too many vehicle vs bike accidents and far too much hate between cyclists & drivers.

The implementation of separate bike lanes would go a long way to keep everybody moving regardless of their preferred mode of transportation.

Fig, Mtn. Brew is far and away the best local brew in the tri counties area. They pride themselves in quality vs massive batches. This is unlike the Firestone 805 which is like the Central Coast Coors or Bud as far as beer aficionados are concerned. This has been very apparent from many conversations I've had at brew events all over the central coast the past six months.

I'm confident that Fig's new "experimental" brews are going to be nothing short of amazing. Heck, I sound like I work for them, but done; I just love great tasting & quality brews.

Does anybody here really think Tudor or Cam Sanchez will ever be let go? Does the City Council check into this at all or just completely trusts the opinions from the SBPD chief & the head City Admin?

Any bets this case is settled out of court & it will be sealed, so we'll never know what the City coughed up to make this all go away?

This will only end when the SBPD gets it their way & the money, especially over time, flows like crazy.. Next report will be how successful it is, but we need more.

On Police for Lease?

Posted on September 12 at 1:26 p.m.

Spot on, Geeber.

What scare tactics! I wonder what Big Jim is getting paid for his endorsement?

Oil money is here by the gazillions in an attempt to send this down. It reeks, pun intended, just like big tobacco's tactics.

YES on P!
