Where is this trial? This is outrageous!!! And, SBSleuth99, since you say this is not the whole story, what is?

On Teacher on Trial

10 isn't exactly much of a pool but it certainly shows how little respect is given government. There are too many who dismiss all politicians as "corrupt" and justify that negativity by saying they don't want to read anything about it or do anything for the common good.

For sure, some, as those you interviewed, can't afford to put in the time; others of us are put off by those who are so clearly in local politics for themselves (see some of the SB council and those who were wanna-bes.) But it's up to the rest of us to care and participate. We do get the government we deserve and it is often a mirror image of ourselves.

It also shows what a gap there is when there is no community newspaper. Ignorance flourishes when there is no news.

Thanks for the survey!

On Goleta's Future Coming Soon

Who wrote this story? Usually, Indy stories have by-lines. Where can one see all the proposed changes? Is there a printed copy at the library? --- it's difficult to read this sort of detail online (and the city has spent so much on the changes to the General Plan, the least they can do is provide hard copies.)

It seems to me that a buffer that is flexible is no buffer at all.

And what does it mean, "Goleta is the transition from urban to open space" -- Goleta by definition is urban and has a responsibility to protect the creeks and watersheds in its boundaries for the benefit of surrounding open space - and its residents.
