Wow, so there's life still in Goleta's General Plan!?! I thought it was dead, eviscerated by a not so-loving council, itself the face of a citizenry that didn't care to put up more than two candidates for two seats.
But it's promising a return to health! We can barely wait. There's little time remaining: "To sleep, perchance to dream - ay, there's the rub,For in this sleep of death what dreams may come...”

Thanks for this report - and research. Can you point to where these campaign $ reportings are available for the public? I searched the County Elections office site and did not find a link.

Living in an area where there have been several stabbings, seen blood on the sidewalk, I think it would be helpful to market our house as being in a gang-free zone.
But I don't think real estate values should be the important factor: public safety is; alternatives for young people are. Perhaps there can be a combination, an injunction that targets only the worst of the bad AND an increased reach-out to youth with healthy (for them and for the city) options. For instance, there's a program in LA of working with teens and shelter dogs, teaching compassion. Another was shown on PBS last night, PAW (Pups and Wards) working with teenage probationers, former gang members, through the Orange County Probation Department.
It's not an either-or, at least not for many.

Wonderful conversation! I, too, benefitted greatly from studying French and Latin in high school, wishing now (but not then!) to have started in elementary school. Having both French and Latin helped me later learn Russian. ...Using none of them now, they're mostly forgotten but helpful in beginning a study of Spanish.
It will be interesting to see if the Adelante students do better than their one-language counterparts. That 87% of SB City College students are below college level in English is shocking: http://www.thechannels.org/news/2014/...

Sounds great, but if you don't have a shuttle, don't know anyone who would want to share the walk, anyone know if there is any bus service? Or maybe it would have to be done in two stages.

Is there a video of this interview available anywhere? No doubt SBIFF videoed the interview and it would be good if it were on the SBIFF.org website.

Thank you for this and I am shocked at Jackson's apparent attitude. I am not a Republican, let alone a conservative one, but I completely agree with Fleishman on the need to show that our government representatives are not above the law.
How interesting that there are othe members of the our government who are lying about their actual residences AND that Sen Jackson, the head of the judiciary committee, knows it snd, apparently, is doing nothing about it. Shocking!
The single largest problem state government, Senate and Assembly, has is its bad reputation. This enforces the lack of respect. Where are the calls from good government agencies, like the LWV which have been supportive of Jackson? Reciting the minimum requirement of truthfulness and then doing nothing is shameful.
"Next steps" should include an immediate suspension of this convict, Wright, a recouping of all public monies paid him during the course of his fraudulent behavior, and a clarification and correction of how the law is unclear, if it is.

How funny! Is this the same Gregg Hart who when hundreds and hundreds of Santa Barbarans petitioned to have Council adopt a resolution, as was being done by many cities in California and the US, against a preventive war in Iraq voted "NO!"?
The same one who a year or so later when the Council was asked to take a stand against the Patriot Act and its invasive aspects, conveniently absented himself from the vote? (In both cases, the resolutions passed - and in the first he was the only council member in opposition.)

What is the link to examine the details of the supervisors' contributions? Aceves must be reaching into some deep pockets?

I agree about the brilliance of La Jaula de Oro/The Golden Dream, but it was introduced as a film from Guatemala where there is more than the beginnings of a film industry. The cinematography and the story are memorable, hard when you see three or four films a day!, and so far, for me, it's the best in the festival, tying with Two Lives.
It's a multi-award winner also: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2042583/a...
