You should have offered to indemnify her for damages and clean up the mess in order to save the trees or do you just try to make others do ass you say and they must deal with the consequences?

They like to call each other "ese" just greet them the same way, say whats up heces... it sounds the same but heces is feces in Spanish and that is what most of these gang bangers are.
On July Fourth Felonies Increase

I'm not talking about picking up trash, I do that, I'm talking about having a tractor and gathering up the seaweed and driftwood and then raking the beaches so they look nice and are more user friendly. I don't own a tractor and other beach towns do groom their beaches daily or weekly.
On Waterfront Parking More Expensive Now

Even if prop. 13 is modified or repealed, politicians will squander away the money and come back looking for more. There need to be radical changes in the system. The way things are going, the poor and unfortunate are coming to California to suck off the government teet and the shrewd and wise are getting out before it all boils over. Overpopulation and a wave of illegal immigrants and their legal offspring who donÂ't assimilate, educate and respect others simply clog the jails, courts, emergency rooms, etc. These people are not welcome back in their own countries and learn to work the system here. Couple that with the average AmericanÂ's laziness and complacency and it is doubtful that things will change soon. California needs more educated, respectful people with the means to support themselves (they can come from other states or any other country). Right now there seems to be an influx of the opposite with politicians pandering to them for votes while bankrupting the state with pork and bribes for votes.

It is expensive to live here and people paying below market rent need to plan for the day when they will have to pay market rent and prepare accordingly. Failure to plan on their part should not create problems for others.
On Stronger Relocation Rules Pushed for Displaced Tenants

Most people living in SB will wake up one day when they are 60 and find out that they are screwed. I see so many people living paycheck to paycheck with nothing in savings and no retirement. There are some who have dumped all their money into a home but then have no retirement. If.... (and that is a BIG IF) Social Security is still around, that will probably be enough to pay their property taxes.
I agree that SB is a beautiful place to live but so many people here are trapped or are naive and really shouldnÂ't be living here. IÂ'll be leaving in a few years. It has been fun here but I donÂ't want to be in my 60Â's and at the best only have a home to show for it. IÂ'd rather own my own home AND have a nice retirement income so I can enjoy my golden years and not have to spend them working at Walmart as a greeter or at the Golden Arches.
Many here in SB have inherited real estate but as time goes on and families have more than one kid, they cannot all live in the same home and with people living beyond their means and mortgaging their homes inheriting a home saddled with debt could be worse than inheriting nothing at all!

Why doesn't SB take care of its beaches like every other beach destination on the planet? I was at the beach the other day and there was loads of seaweed all over the place with flies and trash.
They are raising fees as the people now have new duties but the flip side is that it was done before by somebody else who will now have less work. Just another fee hike or tax in disguise.

The city of SB would go broke if nobody broke parking laws, drove drunk or speeded. Making people criminals keeps the city afloat. DonÂ't question and just pay. The new reasoning is to make everything a Âcivil offenseÂ where you donÂ't have the protections of criminal offenses and it is revenue enhancement where the deck is stacked against you.

They will deny it until the very end if it does happen, that is the way it goes down every time. You really cannot trust anybody. Their service has been kind of crappy and no real reason to have your money there over other banks. IÂ'll be taking my money out next week, there is no reason to leave money there except naivete.
On Pacific Capital Bancorp Refutes Takeover Gossip

There are 2 problems here. The first is so many people want affordable housing and they grab it up and then want to sell years later for a profit. It doesn't work that way, prices should be tied to wages. If you want to buy low and sell high then don't do it with subsidized housing.
The second and biggest problem I see is with Johnny come latelys and carpet baggers. These people have given little to the community and then come in at the last minute to get the affordable units. People should only be allowed on the list if they have lived in the community for the last 10 years consecutively. Let the people who have worked here and supported the area benefit, not some people who decided to come here at the last minute.
