On Trees Being Cut Down at UCSB

Kidding is right on this one - what little chance the county had to have any influence what the tribe wants to do got thrown out the window when they rejected the g-to-g agreement.
On Chumash Expansion Ignites Valley Fever

Safety is obviously important, but I also think the city needs to address our obtuse and confounding permitting system. I know this because I have been through it - "the parking lot you purchased isn't large enough for the building that it came with....You can't expand your parking lot without taking down those trees...you can't take those trees down without approval...you can't have a new parking lot without adding an ADA compliant garbage enclosure...adding that ADA compliant garbage enclosure will reduce the amount of parking you have and now you don't have enough parking for the lot that came with your building...that garbage enclosure direction won't work...sorry, permit to operate your business denied and here's your fine...
Maybe if the system were easier to navigate so many property owners wouldn't try to get around it...
Oh yeah and realitycheck - this is one of those "SB lefty dems" speaking that you seem to know so much about...

District primaries with a city wide general seems like a reasonable way to go.
On Six Santa Barbaras?

rukidding - I just checked Lois Capps' website and in the past 18 months she has sponsored 29 house bills and co-sponsored 100. That doesn't seem like inaction to me...
On Congress Jumps into Dodger Broadcast Dispute

If you drop your cable TV you still won't be able to watch the Dodgers unless you go to a game (legally, that is).

The real problem was hidden in this opinion: "Recently, a consumer of a local day program in Santa Barbara testified in Sacramento about the need to protect funding for the agency he attends."
Which the legislature did by adding small, but desperately needed increases in funding. These were subsequently axed by Gov. Brown just before the budget bell tolled.
The real discrimination against people like this person happens systematically every June when the funding that keeps them out of hospitals and engaged in their communities gets slashed or ignored year after year.
On Voting Rights for All

It amazes me how many people are "pro-life" until it is time to execute a convict.
I think we need to get rid of capital punishment completely, but I agree with the perspective that as long as it continues there is no reason to hide the brutality of it from the public by using injections.
On Death Penalty Terminated

Drivers should probably pause for a moment before becoming outraged and consider whether they actually want to wait for bike riders to come to a complete stop...
On You Damn Dirty Dogs!

I see a lot of green lawns at hotels around town. Goleta was also watering their baseball fields at Girsh Park in the middle of the day on Sunday while baseball games were being played. The city council sure does like to point fingers at residential consumers...
