Its funny about the comments about two levels of justice since the only reason we are even talking about this is because she is a celebrity. Bit hypocritical?
I find it interesting she had .20 readings a good 30 minutes or later from the time she could have left Cold Springs (allowing for travel time). Is it possible to get to .20 from 3 beers consumed over some time (assuming she didn’t chug 3 beers in a row then get in car)?

I appreciate the news but Marborg sent out emails which said the same thing and I really don't see how this is news.

I thought the camp at Dos Pueblos was an interment camp not a POW camp. We are talking about the camp which was located just off 101 where there was a water tower. Were there two camps on DP?

This is probably one of those the grass is greener choices. The other SB has high crime, gangs, a center for drug sales. Any wonder why the current chief is leaving after 2 years. I live in Goleta so Cam doesn’t impact me as directly but I have admired his apparent leadership in tough times. I think it would be Santa Barbara's loss if he was to go.

Bob will be missed and it is such a shame. He has supported so many organizations here in Santa Barbara. The Big 5's and Sport's Authorities of the world can never be as involved as a good local store like Goleta Sports.
As far as the landlord situation I would really question Towbes as I look at the empty store fronts in his center. I’m no economist but zero is still zero.
No Presto Pasta, No Golf Klub, No PickupStix, No Chinese restaurant, etc etc etc. Now no Goleta Sports.

Thank you for the tribute article and history on Jeff. Though I was never a surfer I used to come into the shop on Cabrillo (probably as much to talk to Char) but to chat with Jeff. I admired the man and think of him often as I pass by the location.

I took Larry’s class in the early 70s at UCSB. His insight and knowledge was and is important to me as I was a physics major and it was during the Vietnam War. The ability to have integrity vs. situational integrity is needed in most scientific endeavors. To not take responsibility in the name of science leads us down many a rat hole. Studying with Larry the people and their actions during the Manhattan project and afterwards showed both sides with people like Teller and Oppenheimer. I think a key to how he affected me is that almost 40 years later I can remember those lessons.

I feel most of this discussion is pie in the sky. There are simple truths in play here:
1. We need oil until we can find a substitute. No current technology has any smaller footprint than oil. Hybrid cars have a huge problem with batteries. Biofuel is simply inefficient (it trades food for fuel).
2. Any costs pushed on to an oil company by extra costs or fines or taxes eventually gets passed on to me and you. As has been shown, the oil cartel controls that pricing so well that those costs are insignificant. For every dollar BP spends they will get it back 3x or more by increased pricing.
I’m not sure I have an answer other than nationalizing the oil companies which I think is a terrible idea.
