Great and informative and well-written article. Thank you for all the info and links!

A super-duper nasty, intense poxy disease curse on all bike thieves.

I have had two bicycles stolen. One wasn't locked. The year was 1974. Location was in front of Rexall Drugs (State & Anapamu, back in the day). I did get my favorite sweater back. The sweater was attached to the rack on back of my bike. The thief knew it was an identifying "red flag," and so he tossed the sweater into a gutter. A kind citizen brought it to me.

The other bike was locked up at SBCC, year 1988. A security guy heard bolt cutters and chased the thief down, catching him on the steps of the stadium. I got my bike back when I identified it at the SBPD station.

The SBCC Channels paper had a small blurb about this theft, chastising me for not locking up my bike in a designated rack. My bike was about one foot from said rack, due to no space at the rack. Hah. Score one for the SBCC security guys and one for lucky me.

It's males here commenting and blaming the victim. Classic.

What constitutes "an attack?" The fact that the dog "lunged" at the deputies repeatedly? Nowhere does this article state that any deputies were bitten or even grazed by dog teeth.

This whole thing stinks to high heaven. Apparently SB Deputies need a course in how to deal with dogs without having to use deadly force. Utterly shameful and murderous.

That photo of Caruso and crew coming out, grinning ear-to-ear is perfection itself. The face of greed personified and gratified.

anotherdayinparadise: I'm throwing a penalty flag on your snarky personal attack on Jarvis. Your comment is immature and mean-spirited. Really uncalled for and beneath you.

I haven't subscribed to the News-Press in years, but unlike many others on this thread, I remember exactly how the slippery slope began for the N-P and it had nothing to do with unionizing with the Teamsters or any of that. It had everything to do with Rob Lowe's address being printed and then the N-P's Editorial Page editor being busted for drunk driving. Then, AFTER that, was when the N-P disgruntled employees decided to grouse about Wendy's oversight, their pay and bring in the Union.

As for the Independent and its writers: I think Barney Brantingham was a turncoat, considering the fact that he was on the N-P payroll for decades and owes that entity at least some shred of loyalty. Who put food on his table for all those years? How many times has he told us in print how vile the N-P is? Such bad form.

And the other writers for the Indie? In recent years, the only one whose writings I can stomach are those of Nick Welsh. With nearly all the others, I can barely get through one paragraph of prose without mentally lashing out with the red pencil. Such terrible grammar! No subject-verb agreement, loads of appallingly confusing run-on sentences and mistakes even a Jr. HIgh School journalist wouldn't make. Sometimes you have to read the article twice to make certain you know what the subject really is. Did the copyeditor go on permanent vacation?

Without Wendy McCaw, the News-Press would have died long ago. I believe a lot of people jumped on the "Let's diss the News-Press" bandwagon without ever really having a true grasp of the facts.

Yes. It's always easy to dislike those who are rich. And Wendy will always be a target, with those deep pockets of hers. Best of luck to Eliason, when suing Wendy. He's going to need it.

Eliason, whose photographs I have always admired, should have gone straight to the top and told Ms. Mccaw about the mold and other issues. Since he alleges his "supervisors" weren't of any help, why didn't he tell his employer? Did McCaw even know there was a problem?

These restrictions will keep trash out of the Condor habitat, keep human handouts (accidental or intentional) out of the Condor habitat. I am hoping it will keep lead bullets out as well. Be well, Condors.

As for "babying," no care at all would have been necessary if not for humans always mucking everything up. I hope these magnificent birds thrive and that all measures taken adequately promote their survival.
