Riding a fixed gear bike without any brakes may sound elite but basically it's a stupid idea. I commuted between SB and IV for several months on a track bike with a front brake and can't tell you the number of times I had to use it due to stupid behavior by primarily drivers and the occaisional dog. There is no way you can safely stop in a short distance without one.

Existing pension plans are protected by the State Constitution and recent court decisions (see San Jose Police Officers Association vs. City of San Jose) have invalidated attempts by jurisdictions to cut employer costs for pensions earned by current workers. It will be difficult for the Board of Supervisors to change the existing defined benefit plans for existing workers absent a change in the State Constitution.

"The MWD should not have allowed so many private wells to drain down the relatively shallow water table, especially since groundwater was the MWD's important fall back option."
Unless MWD owns the water rights they have a hard time preventing a private property owner from drilling their own well.

From the County Parks website:
Beginning Friday, December 27, 2013, all vessels seeking to launch at Cachuma Lake will be subject to a TEMPORARY MANDATORY 2-WEEK QUARANTINE. There will be two exceptions: 1) Boats with existing, intact boat launch security tags from Cachuma Lake will be allowed to launch without a 2-week quarantine, and 2) Canoes and kayaks will be allowed to launch after passing the inspection program AND after receiving an additional power wash as boats do.

Not sure why these people are assumed to be here illegally, because of their surname, or their crime?

I don't think it was the "poor families" in IV that caused the Goleta City Formation Committee (or whatever they were called) to draw the boundaries to exclude IV, rather it was because they didn't want to have to pay for the law enforcement costs associated with all the UCSB and City College students.

Whine, whine, whine. You made the deal, you got what you wanted, now live up to it. You want the County to re-negotiate, then you need to put something on the table, like annexing Goleta Beach Park and Isla Vista.
