An awesome show, my son said. I think it's great that Katy came back to Goleta to perform for free for about 1.5 hours. Giving back to the kids!

I think maybe a drug deal gone bad? I'm sure they will figure out his story soon.

All of you are wrong. @ Santa Barbara County Animal Services you can purchase a license for 1,2 or 3 years. It is your choice. Keep in mind if your dog passes within this time you will not be refunded any money. I found this out the hard way ;(
You can license online also at

First of all this article doesn't say he isn't said he owned the car but did not have a license. Maybe he just didn't have the license on his person.

I was a victim of suicide by way of vehicle on Northbound 101 over 4 years ago in the dark of night. A homeless man walked into the path of our truck as we were traveling on the 101 through Sea Cliff. I have seen many times homeless wavering back and forth in traffic to the point of dodging vehicles. They are so inebriated that they can not walk straight. Since none of us were there how can we judge Mr Castillo? Sure the 63 year old man was in a crosswalk and by all means a pedestrian does have the right of way but without seeing all the evidence or being a witness to the scene you can't pass judgement.

Elizabeth, I couldn't agree with you more. I attended all three days and didn't miss one band. I was upset by the F bombs and particularly the acid dropping comment. There was another reference by another band there prior to Pepper going on who said " Stick with marijuana and not hard drugs" I am no longer a Pepper fan and have seen them in concert many times.

Get some class guys!!

On Warning: West Beach Festival Not Family Friendly

I live in the GAP area and would love any feedback that anyone has on the contamination effects of the hydromulching in the GAP area. Is there a health concern from inhaling this while it was being applied? I was in the flight path and I can say that my swimming pool didn't fair too well during the flyovers. Algae bloom big time!

Isn't Edgecomb the one who was on the sheriffs counsel with sheriff Chief Jim Anderson? They had a fight in the office.Chris has been a bully for years and this is nothing new to me. It's time this city stops rubber stamping events, permits, special interests for people. Everyone should go by the guidelines and have no preferential treatment. Shame on all the departments for cutting corners or looking the other direction.

I saw Das Williams skanking to the upbeat and it seemed like he really was enjoying himself. It was a great day..but I have to say that Dishwalla outdid themselves. They played a dozen songs...including Counting Blue Cars. Great show for a terrific cause. Our family donated heavily and my 13 year old really enjoyed the Calstar rescue helicopter that he had the opportunity to sit in. I hope there will be more benefit shows in the future for the wonderful couple and all the Tea Fire victims.
