What's wrong with answering questions? It's good to question! These are public agencies and there should be public accountability.
As for the Grand Jury, a new one is in the process of being impanelled. It starts in July. They decide by majority vote which questions to research and there's no guarantee at all. (This year, unlike all past ones, there is nothing posted on GJ web site: http://sbcgj.org so maybe it is defunct.)
If it still exists, formalize your question and submit it sometime after July. It is certainly within the jurisdiction of the Grand Jury.

Great! Now, how about a fence along the cliff at the Wilcox/Douglas? So many dogs have gone over the cliff there, many to their deaths! Others, as the other day, rescuers risk their lives in rescues.

Thanks for the yapping! Richard Falk is a most exceedingly boring speaker, predictable in his opinions. Indeed, the timing of his latest was poor, just as poor as the over-reaction, civil liberties tramplings of the Boston police force and FBI.
As for Falk, he helps give the UN a bad name, costs it support in this country --- and that's greatly unfortunate.

Goleta is becoming Santa Maria south; consider the cement walls risen along Hollister; take a look at the Santa Maria Target and mourn the demise of "the good land" whose ethos was local.
Too bad they can't or won't build it underground and have a park on top.

Libraries are NOT on the chopping block, it's a question of choices. There's a lack of education, selling the idea to the voting, paying public why "new" libraries are needed at Washington and Adams, for instance, when a lot of effort and public fund expenditures have been made to make and correctly make the SB Central Library student-welcome.
I am guessing that most classrooms at Washington and maybe Adams are internet-connected. I am also guessing that part of the new libraries wishes would be to upgrade the computer aspects. Isn't that duplicative? If not, please explain Trustee Parker.

I just watched the video and it is shocking. If that bald-head is Tudor, he should be severely chastised ...or else we in this city should be very, very afraid. I completely agree with blackpoodles. If de Nuncio's driving was impaired, why wouldn't he have been pulled over rather than allowed to drive for miles to the Gelson's parking lot! Should be a fat lawsuit against the city.

Santa Barbara School District needs a trustee like Ms. Hiles. Less than a year since they got $110,000,000 in bonds they are thinking about coming back for more $$$?! Thank you, trustee Ed Heron, for reminding your colleagues and the School District of their so-easily forgotten promises.

The story, an excellent one, is in the News-Press, Chilango999999. Agreed, the ghost of the New & Review is stirring, rolling, ghostly fingers in ears, covering eyes.
Bees know no property lines and have no legal rights. It is up to us who value their work to protect them. This use in Goleta of the Bayer beecide Metro 2F is outrageous anytime, but particularly when the trees are in full blossom. Shame on those homeowners for allowing this. Thanks to Todd Bebb and Marc Chytilo for their efforts. Thanks to those brave homeowners saying "no!"
What say our state representatives Williams and Jackson?

Did anyone watch the entire hearing on Tuesday and see how ridiculous Councilmember Murillo was, waving her arms, wanting, practically demanding to make a motion before the mayor had a chance to speak on an agenda item that didn't require a motion?!

Why no story in the Independent on how Dudley has backed down?
Thankfully, this county has at least one judge willing to follow the law. And we also have Noozhawk for "nooz": http://www.noozhawk.com/article/04111...
