Insult to injury.
After UCSB grew past sustainable levels within Santa Barbara, they go ahead and congest the area with more pollution, traffic, and destroy the rental market for locals.
I.V. already is the densest area this side of the Mississippi. Money corrupts.

Montecito Water District is nuts not to recycle their water since most of it goes to irrigation anyway. Mosby says it's not economical to recycle water but his "desal only" approach is the least economical option.
Montecito Water District needs lots of options to draw water from during the good and bad times.

Lower green fees would increase use. Green fees weren't always so high. That would help the restaurant too.

A clear violation of Title IX.
If this ever reaches a court of law, SBCC won't have a leg to stand on.
Also, requiring $30,000 to consider reinstatement sounds like a bribe. I doubt that bogus threat has any legal justification since other sports, both men and women, don't face similar bribes. Discrimination, discrimination, discrimination.
I'll vote No on P because of this boondoggle..
If SBCC could get back to healthy priorities, like focusing on students, the community would want to help. If the bond went to reducing tuition, so local high school graduates could afford to attend SBCC, I would support it. Many low-income high school graduates don't attend because $46/unit is too much.

"Proposition 1 won’t increase the state’s water supply, won’t provide drought relief, and won’t improve California’s long-term water outlook."
Please tell the readers what desal and water recycling is. Have you heard of these concepts Ankur.

The Indy hasn't been using all their marbles this election year. Hopefully they haven't lost them.
I think their endorsements just came from the owner and don't reflect the journalists thinking.
Extreme birth rates, which create over-population, are a problem based in ignorance, religious beliefs against contraception and birth control, and poverty.
Refusing to create a healthy, safe water supply in California will not limit population growth.
As long as we remain in a drought, we're gonna need a new, reliable source of water for crop irrigation and drinking water. Since water-recycling is probaly cheaper and safer than desal, it makes since to prepare for this continuing drought with water projects that are economically viable.
Yes there has been waste in the past with "State Water" projects, but at least water recycling is water we already own and control right here locally.
To just dump our own local water in the ocean after one use is STUPID.

Foreign government, sovereign nation, either way they need to conform to local land-use rules.
If the BIA process has loopholes to get around local land-use rules, Lois Capps needs to introduce legislation to fix that. She may fail due to the corrupt nature of congress, but she should at least try.

“I will continue monitoring the BIA process closely but maintain this issue is best resolved at the local level,” she said in a statement.
It's not a local issue, it's a federal issue. The County has no jurisdiction.
The process that allows land purchased from the County by foriegn governments, to not conform to the same land-use regulations should be illegal.
Otherwise the tribe can buy a house anywhere and put up a 12 story monstrosity or buy ag-land and build houses.
It's a federal issue and our Congresswoman needs to take ownership of this issue, which is negatively effecting all of us, including the Chumash whose tribal government has been taken over by gambling interests.
If the BIA process is broken, then intoduce legislation to fix it.
