Being a survivor of the Vietnam era riots in the early 70s at UCSB and IV this is same blah blah blah we heard then. The school was going to break down the Eucalyptus Curtain, watch and control with the county what was happening in IV. Here we are 40 years later and they are saying the same stuff. Seeing is believing. There are so many issues: over crowding, outsiders coming to IV to party with no respect etc. Gun control for a specific area like IV won't work unless they put up a fence around IV, do a complete search of guns and remove them and then search every vehicle and person coming. Guns per se are not the biggest issue in IV.

IV has become known as party central. Many if not most of the people being arrested are not UCSB students. At halloween it was mainly SBCC. The guy who stabbed someone was from Lompoc and not a student. The guy jumping on cars WAS a UCSB student. And who knows about the rioter. The guy at the Hawaii game was a student also.
When the Vietnam era riots happened in the 70s the administration was blamed for ignoring IV behind the Eucalyptus curtain. The students, landlords, admin and law in force have to have a plan. I don't see they work together yet

That’s kind of like naming the San Fernando Valley after the land barons and water thiefs that stoled the water from the Owens Valley. One of the worse cases of land grabs in CA.

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.
