Grants are nice but finite. How do we pay to operate this thing once it's built? Sheriff Bill is depending on his union-captive illiberal cronies to fund it using what for money?

On County Awarded $38.9 Million Jail Grant

All this guy knows how to do is ask for money. Time for Sandra to have a chance.

And do a little research on Officer Involved Shootings in Santa Barbara county under Sheriff Bill. I guarantee you will be shocked. Many times higher than NYC on a per capita basis. But no guns for law-abiding citizens under Sheriff Bill - oh no, better they be sitting ducks.

Oil companies provide a product that everyone needs, as opposed to eating everyone's cake. Demonizing them is just so 70's. Try to at least imitate a thoughtful person instead of spouting bumper stickers.

I don't understand. Is Goleta trying to have its cake and eat it too? Easy to cast Venoco as the bad guy, but ya know when a politician is lying? Lips are moving.

Renewables will be wonderful, when there is a large enough supply at a reasonable price.

Funny dprince but you seem to be taking the same approach. foo is no more self-serving than any other poster herein - he (she) simply has a rather different view than yours. Yes, by all means, follow the money, ALL the money, to ALL the candidates.

On Wolf Collects Another $20,000 From Labor Union

Seriously, DrDan, do you think a union-owned self-serving politician is the answer? Read the NP article today on "illiberal" - very interesting view.

If everyone thought like you we'd still be on dial phones owned by The Telephone Company. What advances in science and standard of living have been made entirely by government (except, of course, for increased standards of living for the "government class")? I watch the Hunger Games and see your vision of the future - self-appointed special people holding onto power by threat of force and being supported by the masses. Kinda the old Soviet model.

The answer, I suggest is neither "conservative" nor "liberal" but thoughtful and selfless. Did you know that State Senators in NH get a salary of $100 per year? Sounds like a fine idea to me. Means that they have to have a real job and ensures that the legislature cannot be full time causing trouble for the citizens. Worst things ever to happen to this country are the two party system and the unthinking mind.

Thank you, Eckermann, for being the voice of reason. Unfortunately, the envirofanatics have taken the position that private property rights count for nothing. It's about time they were slapped down hard. They need to learn to compromise. But of course, they go to court instead.

Brooks Firestone elected not to run after observing what a poisonous illiberal (see today's NP) atmosphere exists in the BoS - definitely not conducive to rational financial planning and problem solving.

Wolf is the anti-Firestone and possibly the antiChrist :-) No concept of long term implications of decisions, no apparent objective but to shovel ever more money down the gaping union maw, not even honest on the Goleta beach front - could she have waited ANY longer to change sides? Not a moral bone in her body. Apparently not very smart. And that's the good things I can say about her.

@K_V: I certainly don't think that Aceves is a saviour, but breaking Wolf and the Demachine's hold on the office would be a step in the right direction. Since I can't vote in that district, my opinion, as always, is only that - an opinion.

@foo: keep it up buddy. Don't let the illiberals get you down. Remember, the majority of people in this county make their living off the government - kinda makes for a pro leftie big spending bias. Not to mention the long term effect of too many UCSB grads not moving away.
