I wish them luck. Unfortunately, the wholesome-sounding message doesn't jibe with the grody reality of SB's skatepark. Basically, a significant contingent of foul-mouthed, cigarette and/or pot-smoking teenagers (first hand observation) who ignore safety equipment rules and intimidate and bully the few skatepark monitors the city tried sending down there. The bikers are even worse. I have personally watched a huge gang of 20 - 25 punks on bikes taunting and swearing at SBPD officers after they were told to leave the park. Skateboarding, as a sport, may be a lot of fun, but skateboard culture is gross, and should not be sponsored by the city.

Not very many Hispanic names on the Old Spanish Days board. Maybe we should call it Old Anglo Days.

More than 10 to 15 officers just for this ride? Lighten up, people.

Pini: SB's own Teflon Don. Does he have something on city officials? Are they in cahoots? I can't imagine any other reasons for Pini's lax treatment over the years.

I want as many people as possible to take the bus so that there is less traffic for me. I also want the city to stop building poor housing everywhere. SB's already ghetto enough.

How about this idea? If you can't afford to live in SB, then live (and work) somewhere else until you can.
