Known the Capps family many years. Kind and decent people. Thank you for your service. Don't let the trolls get you down. I am not buying some of the responsibility slinging for the actions of staff members. It is impossible to control people actions 24-7 that work for you. I am also not sure of the entire story, nor ever will be. Sad all around no doubt. Enjoy retirement.
Please take Helene Schneider off the "short list".

On Capps Announces She Won't Seek Reelection

Actually, it does come across as somewhat retaliatory from what is mentioned in this article with the "remarkable coincidence" of timing of the termination. This action, in conjunction with all the other shenanigans Team Wendy has pulled, will probably add up in the eyes of a judge. An employer HAS to provide a safe working environment. Although, will the SBNP dispute the test, the timing of it also as to put a retaliatory measure back on the disgruntled employee? Lots of money behind that SBNP legal staff. Then there is always the endless appeals process. It would be nice to have someone hold Wendy accountable.

Speaking of bias and self interest, did anyone notice the FRONT PAGE article she ran on campaign contributions her EX HUSBAND Craig McCaw made to Salud Carbajal campaign yesterday? Talk about bitter! Laughable. And why is Craig giving Carbajal money? Hmmm...let me guess (pinky in corner of mouth) Maybe so he can build his McMansion next to the Bacara? All of this STINKS like pooh!

Katich is starting to remind me of Hannity, a twirp with no grasp on reality but rolling with a ridiculous slant as a media whore. I know people with allergies and asthma issues. Black mold is a life ruining situation for them. I hope this guy takes Wendy and her cronies to the cleaners. And by the way, my crappy paper had NO bag on it this morning and was soaking in wet grass. WTF?

Wow this is a really interesting read for a few different reasons.
1. You wonder if the the litigious hobbies of the uber rich will ever come into play? Remember that show Celebrity Deathmatch? Wendy vs Ty.
2. The whole eccentric MJ no friends alienated kids crappy sibling childhood Howard Hughes mean mom thing is pretty gnarly.
3. The way a fad takes over speculative buying. It actually reminds me of the music industry in the way there is an effort to create a "buzz" about a band even if they are crappy as all get out.

Great article Indy. I hope there are is no weird backlash like the Montecito Journal received. But then again, who cares, that is why they call it the Independent right?

Screw the neighbors on street parking. If they live out there, they should have a driveway big enough to accommodate normal needs. Won't I get a ticket if I park on "their" street currently? If they want to have a party, hire a valet service like anyone else out there. Too bad so sad Montecito, now you are going to get a taste of what is like to be in Goleta. Just wait until the freeway work is being done at the same time construction is going on. Look at the bright side, maybe Justin Bieber will come stay at the hotel when it is done.

Next @#$%ing April? are you kidding me? I agree with Greg, at last someone is trying, but much in the way Cal Trans chief came by and put the kibosh on the left hand exits, I think they should have a word with Union Pacific. I think the key word/problem in that title UNION Pacific is UNION. Further more, I didn't know that a TV has such sensitive feelings that it can't travel the tracks in off business hours. Shortsightedness on the Union Pacific peoples part. Less commuting time means more time for people to consume the crap that goes on their trains.

On All Aboard the Commuter Rail?

the drought? I thought it was all the crap people were buying at Home Depot and spraying around in their back yards?

On Weapons Charges for Standoff Suspect

So much negativity..I think this is a start albeit a very late one. A commuter rail line next to the regular tracks is the ticket. Probably could use a smaller train too instead of gigantic antiquated amtrak monsters. Sounds silly, but think monorail Disneyland people. This would be a boom for down town business all those people being dropped off at the train station, and you could probably put a few more stops in. Look at the Carp train station. Takes 10 minutes from SB, instead of the 45 you all sit and burn gas in your cars. Instead of an inner city subway, create one along the tracks with numerous stops. I believe this should be done before the 101 project is started. It is funny, the high tech world of the USA, all the UCSB technology and innovation and we want to go with 1950's locomotive technology or even worse, just let it sit there idle during rush hours. Does it piss any off you off while you sit there (0 mph) and watch empty giant antique trains go by? I see this high speed rail project as a misallocation of funds and resources, instead a central coast commuter line should be done. It is amazing to me local business does not not get behind this 1000%. Regarding tack use, there has to be away to cut who ever is in charge in on the deal. Let the business sharks earn their keep and do their thing.

Regarding the 101, lots of Cal Trans surveyors doing their jobs the last couple weeks from SB to Carp. Yay! Oh and it looks like someone is cleaning up that dump of a freeway in Montecito. Funny, with all the $$ there, no one would do a sponsor the highway gig and clean up that dump.
