The question is, would the supporters vote for it if it was coming out of their pocket for the next 25 years? No, that's why local sales tax increases fail. It's all good when someone else is paying. I'll have the lobster please.

They already have the money spent and have some pretty grand plan. they If you think the traffic and crowding in the neighborhood near the West Campus is bad now, just wait. Link below for a full description.

The comment that sticks out is that 60% of the budget is spent on public safety. Maybe if there was some comprise on the departments side to address the unsustainable pension benefits, and if our elected representatives were not so indebted to them for their seat, they could have some balls and push for real reform and we could have both safety and infrastructure. Future pension cost is the biggest unfunded mandate and the elephant in the room that no one wants to talk about. Look at the authors of this piece and connect the dots. The only thing that is transparent is government electing government.

I've cooked with both, but prefer the nobillis which I have in the garden. It does well, but is not a fast grower. I have seen them for sale at the Saturday farmers market and also 7-day Nursery and imagine they are available elsewhere. Very nice to have fresh bay leaves no matter which type

The act ended up causing someone great harm. That being said, if you are rich kids from Westmont who traspass on private property, light a fire that causes mass destruction of propery severe burns and permanent injury to 2 people, the DA protects your indenity for as long as possible and then you get off without penalty.
It does seem excessive and out of line with other crimes that cause even greater harm and/or were premeditated or carried out over years.

The Santa Barbara Vew reports the costs of 1 million which seems low and the Indy 11 million which seems high. Mmm

Hopefully going forward the Indy will provide a equal forum for all candidates who file to run for local elections, and not repeat the travesty of selective inclusion of the last election.

Per the Indy article, multiple officers saw SG being beaten before they could intervene. They decided to taser the guy being beaten. That does not make sense. I am guessing their story will change during the the investigation. Like gang members witnessing a crime, amnesia will set in. As one cop told me, " we protect our own". I am willing to wait for the investigation, but I have little faith. " absolute corruption corrupts absolutely ".

Reducing usable beach area and eliminating any parking along the beach side of La Conchita so bicyclists can have a ocean view along that stretch of coast. It would have made more sense to run the bike lane on the other side and not reduce beach access. I guess La Conchita will become the unofficial parking lot.
