My car has been hit twice by unlicensed and uninsured drivers; both times, the unlicensed driver was breaking other traffic laws - i.e., they did not know HOW to drive. One ran a red light.
Whatever your political beliefs, remember that drivers must pass a test to get a drivers license. If they don't have a license, they don't have to show that they can drive safely and understand the vehicle code, and this is bad for all of us. I would rather the cars were impounded than used as lethal weapons outside the law.

Wow. Isn't this about a lawyer caught using dirty tricks to keep drunk drivers on our streets, and nothing more? I am not a cop, but I do believe in the rule of law, and behavior like this (filming witnesses in court, taking photos when told not to by the judge) is unprofessional and gives lawyers everywhere a bad name.

I wonder if Whatsername IS one of the new trustees. Look at some of the posts from the same user, here and on
noozhawk. Weird.

On SBCC Trustees Chided

Community colleges are designed to have shared governance. The role of board, president, academic senate, student senate are all defined clearly. If the new board had wanted to, they could have followed long-standing statewide guidelines on how to act appropriately and still got the job they were elected to do done. For some reason, they decided that the rules, policies and procedures were just an obstacle and that they knew best.

I want my kids to go to college and find room in core classes so they can get a good education. When they get to college, whether it is SBCC or Yale, I expect that those chosen to run the institution will be focused on education, not on promoting free adult ed classes for Marsha Croninger's husband.

Edhat has a copy of his resignation email, complete with typos and grammatical errors. We have to stop accepting second best when it comes to our public schools!

So long as we don't have to tolerate these environmentally unsound ships in the long term... Seeing that hulk off our coast made me really thankful that we don't make a habit of putting out the welcome mat for these cruise ships.

It's time to shut that Jack in the Box down. It serves no purpose, except attracting hobos and gangbangers, and makes that intersection dangerous too...

I wish I wish I wish I wish KJEE played contemporary music - yes, I am a complainer, but why can't this radio station be more like KCRW? Not everyone likes listening to rehashed replayed "modern" rock from ten years ago every morning, and it is an insult to the intelligence of Santa Barbarans to think our tastes are so outdated.

Does anyone know the name of the lady who died?

At a time when nearly 150 local children are about to be left without access to quality education, it is insensitive and wrong-headed to resort to unsupported assumptions about how Hope School District came to be so successful.
Where is the support in this story for the suggestion that "Since the district's inception, proponents aggressively recruited families in the Santa Barbara School District to jump ship and bring their money with them?" Did someone say that to the reporter? Who? Is it even true?
When there is a real story to report, then resorting to opinion in a news story is insulting to readers. How about asking Ms. Fausset whether she is still working for her former employer, SBSD, in trying to send these kids back to the underperforming and underfunded schools she left behind, rather than focusing on maintaining the thriving schools she inherited in Hope, Monte Vista and Vieja Valley?
