Speaking of Vinnie, he of course now only announces games west of the Rockies. Living where he does, he is not able to watch Dodger away games, just like the other 70% of Dodger fans. This is because Time/Warner does not offer cable TV where he lives.
What is the point of being a Dodger fan when the team makes deals that keep you from watching them? In the meantime the Dodgers are now owned by the "Guggenheim Foundation" (NYC). The creep Frank McCourt (Boston) is still lurking and raking in with his parking lot concession. I have been a Dodger fan since they moved to LA. Now I don't even know who's on the team. Even when ESPN broadcasts the game, Time/Warner insures it's blacked out as well.
Unmitigated greed at work. Not a pretty sight.

Now, just why do you suppose that someone donating $800K plus to the sheriff would want to remain anonymous? Just bashful?

I feel the Chumash's anger and pain. You see, their culture was never technologically capable of building something as complex as a teepee. They lived in huts made of brush. They couldn't even figure out drums, using sticks instead.
In related news, Vincent Armenta, whose ancestry is 3/4 German, was re-elected as tribal chairman while the 12-story "finger in the sky" building project is well under way.
Yah Ta Hey!

On Farr, County Keep Talking Chumash Expansion Concerns

Let me get this straight:
For many years, the white folks have trashed the environment to make a quick buck.
Now, in order to be fair, the "Chumash" are going to trash one of the last remaining rural valleys of Southern California . . . to make a quick buck.
Once every place is filled with high rise, high crime casinos, everything will be cool? Revenge is sweet, ain't it?

"What's the Camp Four property? I may work in the area but have no idea where that is."
Then again, you may not work there? Pretty hard to miss Camp 4, so I would suspect you are unfamiliar with the SY Valley. Do feel free to express your (uneducated) opinions.
" . . . And unless the Valley puts a ban on future expansion, then the Chumash has every right to expand regardless of the resources they eat up (IMO)."
Unfortunately, "the Valley" is not a legal entity. If by that, you mean Santa Barbara County, well, there *are* hundreds (if not more) of restrictions on the use and development of property in the SY Valley. All of us property owners here have to abide by them. Oh , . . . except for the "Chumash", who claim extraterritoriality and deal only with the State (to a limited extent), and the BIA in Washington DC. The zoning laws, developed over many years by planners and legislators, concern themselves with land use, preservation, environmental issues, infrastructure, etc. etc. etc. The "Chumash", in their money - making venture, can and do ignore such trifling matters.
So, legally speaking, they may have a "legal right' to do such things, but their neighbors are gravely concerned by the future of what was once one of the last pastoral coastal valleys in Southern California.

County officials may have "concerns", but the way the Chumash gambling deal is structured, there ain't one damn thing they can do about it. Think the twelve-story hotel tower is out of place? Wait until they get going on building out the Camp4 property.

"Why should the government be telling the television industry how much to charge for their services?"
Very simple. Broadcast frequencies are owned by us, The People. Commercial broadcasters lease frequencies from the government to broadcast programs (and make plenty of $$). In exchange for this, they are supposed to follow rules formulated by Congress, administered by the FCC. Unfortunately, the FCC was gutted by Reagan while president so that, instead of protecting the people, the big corporations are protected. Sound familiar?
