"Some hedges hit way over 10 feet. In a worst-case scenario, it means going to court. You pay the downslope owner for a view corridor running with the title. Don’t laugh. It happens." That's the way it should happen. The City should not be in the business of protecting private views.

I'm sure the Sheriffs were concerned about a drunken bozo dancing on the roof of that car, and possibly damaging it, becuse if he fell off and injured himself he might sue them for allowing him to do it.

@CManSB - our figures agree on John McInnes salary, and I also agree with your statements regarding the top-heavy management structure that we rate-payers support. Fully half of my monthly water bill (I just received Decembers) is a "meter charge" which has no relation to the amount of water I use each month.

I've always thought it a little smelly that candidates accept money from employee groups that they control the salaries of. Janet would be well served to return the money, but I'm guessing that's not going to happen. If unions want to support a particular candidate they should do so independently.

Again the choice we have is the lesser of two evils. At least Wolf is predictable. Aceves is a loose cannon.

Caltrans always over does it. The curve re-alignment mentioned in the last paragraph is not necessary but Caltrans wants to do it because too many stupid drivers can't keep their speed below 65 MPH and negotiate the curve without smacking the center divider.

On Rainstorm Lands With Ferocity

From the County website:
"The most recently calculated County costs for services within the City of Goleta in fiscal year 2013to 2014 is $11.8 million, and the revenue received under the tax sharing agreements is $8.8 million resulting, in a net annual subsidy to the City of Goleta of $3.0 million. In addition, the County separately estimated the cost of fire services in the incorporated City of Goleta for the fiscal year 2010 to 2011at a net loss of approximately $3.1 million."
So, if the City wants to revise the RNA, maybe they shoutd start providing the municipal servcies themselves.

Exactly, I would have gone back inside and let the police deal with it IF it truly was a dangerous dog.
