That's really too bad. Uncontested elections don't instill much confidence that our elected officials are really the best people for the job. It would be nice to replace pro-growthers like Aceves with true leaders who are committed to the preserving the interests of Goleta and its residents, and not just blindly following the $$ of new development. The out-of-control development in Goleta and the problems that it is creating will forever alter the charm and character of the community.

This same tripe -- citing the same incorrect data -- has been published in various local sources. Since you asked, Frank, I'll let you know what I think. I think you're trying to stir up anti-bicycling sentiment, but for what purpose I do not know. Our community would be better off if more people rode bikes instead of driving. It's in our collective self-interest to promote cycling and make it safer and more convenient. There would be less pollution, less road congestion, and less cost to the tax-payers. Why do you oppose this?

Loonpt, what's the relevancy of whether or not they ever had consensual sex? If they did, does that mean that he could not have raped her? Does providing consent once mean that he has complete access to her body from this point forward? Of course not! You're question and the implication behind it are ridiculous.

It seems like the issue isn't whether or not A CONTRACT should be signed, but whether or not THIS contract should be signed. Considering the seriousness of the concerns, I'm glad the County Supervisors did not approve it. But why did the Chumash need to take such a hard-line stance by refusing to negotiate? Is there no room for middle ground, a negotiated agreement that would be amenable to all sides?

I'm curious about the statement that UCSB has opposed the cityhood incorporation of Isla Vista: "such an option was opposed by the UCSB administration, which, in alliance with the county, had created the pressure-cooker community." I don't necessarily dispute it, but I wonder exactly what the University has done. Can you elaborate on UCSB's position or cite examples of their actions?

If you want to go car-free in LA, why not take the train? Union Station is serviced by the Metro (Red, Gold, & Purple lines) and there are other public transportation options. It's also possible to take a bike on Amtrak and get around LA on two wheels.
