What's the point of soliciting sealed bids if all that's going to happen is those in the room can then outbid them?

"David Thurman, the project rep from BonDrak (an L.A.-based development firm pegged by CrossHarbor to potentially build the project), asked that his team be “treated a little bit more fairly” the next time they meet with the county."
He must be new to this party, huh?

They're going to lose on the lawsuit though... stupid to force inclusion of restaurants in this.

WTF is the County smoking?if it will cost $1.5 million to scrape the property, tell my WHY the County should rebate Caruso $18 million? Explain that?
Also, what this deal really amounts to is fraud, perpetrated on each and every occupant of the finished hotel. Every guest WILL be charged the "tax", yet it isn't really a tax... it is going directly to the hotelier, no matter what twisted game of 3 card Monte they use. That is fraud.
Hey.. better idea: Let the County condemn the buildings and remove them. Then, after Caruso get's his sh*t together, he can pay that bill too. Even if the county forgave the costs, they'd still be ahead $16.5 million... is this really Rocket Science?

most of this is window dressing.when you take a peek under the hood, you find stuff like this:
"$3.5 billion will be dedicated to relieving 32,000 homeowners of unpaid balances remaining when their homes are foreclosed."
So, basically, the banks won't try to collect any amounts owed over what the banks sold the properties for, something they typically don't bother to go after anyway.

"Don Monkerud is an Aptos, California-based writer who follows cultural issues and politics and writes occasional satire."
And Satire this certainly is. Perhaps the author should take off his partisan rose colored glasses and research the real facts if he wants anybody to take him seriously.
Articles like this are dangerous because there are so many people that refuse to actually think and research for themselves and have been taught to accept as truth anything at face value, as written.

tabatha... how brilliant...and completely wrong.
The reason there is not suicide barrier is because there is NO SIDEWALK... this is on the freeway - people are not supposed to be up there at all, that's the difference.

I thought Josh Lynn was an attorney, not a PR person... The penalties for a second offense DUI usually follow the mandated guidelines, so Lynn's approach is rather strange as he is basically admitting his client's guilt.
The violator's political leanings shouldn't have anything to do with this at all, but that seems to be what a lot of posters have focused on. Again, pointless.
So, basically, we have an admitted alcoholic crash into a tree off the freeway while seriously under the influence of alcohol... unlike the previous two cases, this one is a no brainer - Joe, you're in serious trouble.
On Carpinteria Councilmember Joe Armendariz Arrested for DUI

Why was there no audio on the beginning of the video?
There are at least two or three other videos of this incident from different perspectives, where are they?
Without a resisting charge being filed against DeNunzio, its hard to imagine his suit against the city will not get settled out... think about it, the only justification to use excessive force (or "beat down", which this certainly was) is to overcome resisting arrest... without those charges, Denunzio wins his lawsuit. Probably loses on the DUI, but he'll still get paid.
I'd really like to see the other videos though...
And now, it seems, quite a few of the witnesses are saying they don't want to testify to what they saw... why not? Could it be that they are afraid of retaliation by the PD?
Any of you SBPD shills wanna chime in here?
