Explains the reasons there are so many for sale on craigslist.

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.

A whale tale sculpture fountain at the entrance to the harbor? Sounds like self promotion. Oh well, if all you have is a hammer, everything looks like a nail.

The questions are, in view of current and future budget considerations is it wise to assume the initial and future costs and liabilities of something that is already being paid for by the state, and is this the highest traffic priority for Santa Barbara? Why buy the cow when you get the milk for free. It is financially irresponsible for our leaders to pander to the vocal and apparently politically powerful Mesa group, without providing a clear accounting of all projected expenses down the road, where the funds are coming from and what projects will be sacrificed to do this. The Mesa group has big plans already drafted for Cliff Drive once responsibility has been transferred. The city can barely take care of maintaing the streets downtown and they want to take over a highway? It is a want, not a need.

Does anyone see the biased reporting? "Based on the verdict, the Housing Authority had better experts..." Maybe the verdicts were based on the facts and that none of the plaintiffs suffered any harm. I get it that Nick doesn't treat landlords with kid gloves, but this the same guy didn't give the last non blessed council runners any space in the Indy in the last election. 1. 2 million? Looks like maybe Budkes working for a HA project as a specialist thought she could retire from some deep pockets. She defiantly had an knowledge of how the system works and I guess $50,000 just wasn't enough of that cash pie. She should have taken the money and ran. It would have been a good down payment on a condo.
Not all mold is created equal, especially on the Mesa where the dampness, post war construction and often limited ventilation is common as is surface the mold that is easily wiped away with a rag and some bleach. We all grew up with it.
Are we talking about major flooding, long standing water leaks and rot that was not addressed when noticed, and positive allergy testing, or long running respiratory issues that seem to be increasing overall?
In case anyone hasn't noticed, the suits filed for mold cases has gone down proportionally since insurance companies stopped including mold it their policies without a rider (which is often available for renters). It's kind of like peanuts. Now you can sue Pad Thai.
