It sounds pleasant and creative, but it's hard to imagine young punks who join gangs sitting around and feeling their way to being law-abiding. Do we really need another program in Santa Barbara? Seems like we are always getting programs for homeless and mentally ill people, and we have more than ever.The use of the word "sententious" is funny. How many people even know what that is?The adjective name idea is a little too much like the gang names they already give each other.Oh well, everyone is entitled to their idealistic thinking, as long as I have a choice on whether to pay for it.

Seriously, only a tiny fraction of smugglers caught so far are even prosecuted, and the two who were got less than a year?? Imagine what that was cut down to with overcrowding. And then are they escorted to the border, so they can find a boat and start right back up?

I hate to rock Lodge's world, or the other arts supporters' dreams, but all that matters right now is ascertaining which will is the legal one. A will expresses a decedent's last wishes. This is not about what Santa Barbara wants for the property, it's about what Miss Clark wanted.It's extremely greedy, self-serving and premature to form a committee now. Let the process play out to see which will prevails, then jump in and make your wishes known to the trustee.

It would be nice to hear a bit about her dogs, since it is part of the story, and they were no doubt dear to her (and probably so freaked out). Hope they have someone to care for them, for her sake and theirs.

The victims and their families are first and foremost on my mind. No one comes along ten years later to "free" them from the loss of their child or their permanent injuries or emotional trauma. What sort of system lets the sick perpetrator enjoy the most trouble free aftermath of such a horrific event?I am also offended at a relatively minor issue. What judge issues a decision so riddled with typos and grammatical errors? There are several items even spell check would have found. A high school teacher would not have given this a passing grade, and yet it is the document that effectively sets the wheels in motion to free a killer. The whole process is appalling.

THOUSANDS of clients? Please! I agree it's terrible this has happened to the employees, and they are entitled to their salaries and an apology, but everyone else will somehow survive the abrupt departure of their apricot scrub mask and cucumber lemon facial wrap outlet. It's not like there aren't a zillion other day spas in this town.

"Prize winning show birds?" Is that a quote from her attorney, or factually verified reporting? I'd be surprised if she's been participating in bird shows any time recently. Sounds like a fluffy phrase to make her hoarding sound more legitimate. No matter how stellar a person's intent, it is functionally impossible to provide proper care for as many animals as she had, under her circumstances (financial, space, etc). That does not negate her good intentions. Most hoarders have abundant good intentions, but have taken on responsibility for a number of animals that is far in excess of their ability to properly and humanely feed, medicate, house and otherwise care for. Most hoarders also repeat offend. She will be back in the news sooner or later.

Oh my, this whole situation is a horrible, unavoidable tragedy. What a bunch of egos. This is all fragmented and will deteriorate even more. Glick should be replaced with fresh, invigorated leadership. And warehousing every single sort of nice pit bull WON'T work. I've never seen any city with such a morass of animal shelters and support groups. There are professional standards and training to help people make good, humane, kind euthanasia decisions. Obviously, no one is availing themselves of these resources!

What a thankless, challenging, stressful job. If they do too little, someone can get killed, kidnapped, or there can be a robbery. If they do too much, they get 2nd guessed.i was a patient for a scant five hours a few weeks ago. In that time, parked on a gurney in the hall, I saw a mentally ill homeless man pull his pants down and urinate on himself and the hall floor, and expose his privates and backside, I heard another man screaming the "N" word at a employee, and three more people were drunk and disorderly (and combative).
