Sbarbarian-I was mostly referring to that short on ramp right in front of the hotel heading south (Jameson Lane on ramp?). I am not sure how a round a bout there will do anything to alleviate the 0-60 time necessary to get on there, unless it is backed up like it usually is. Also mix in a bunch of people, all at once, perhaps with a few cocktails in them...could add up. Hopefully when the freeways is fixed up, it will alleviate some of this potential traffic pressure. Regardless, I am glad it went through and thing it will be a gem once built. I mean, what a dramatic entrance into SB: first Fernald point, then the Miramar. Nice.

No rocket science here people, that last paragraph says it all. There are no more standing water supplies around. There will be coyotes an all sorts down there this coming summer. Watch your pets.

Awesome! Enjoy your own version of the Bacara Montecito. Be careful getting on and off that freeway!

Jarvis is to GOP what Loon PT is to WEED. But Shirley I digress.
On Capps Announces She Won't Seek Reelection

Some people are like Jacka$$es on Facebook just constantly taking selfies. Whether or not they are on Wendy's payroll, or maybe have been given the specific task to sit and respond to every comment not in favor of the SBNP travesty is debatable. I have a hard time with your definition of Philanthropic. With the damage done to this town, and the degradation of the news paper does this mean it is a wash because of her animal donations? Nevermind the lives and careers ruined because of her own narcissistic self interests mixed with some tantrums and a litigious lifestyle. I wonder if Shelly Sterling needs a play date? Can you imagine if the SBNP had a section like this where any one could comment? It would truly blow up the internet.

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".

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.
