In 1970 some stupid junkie stole my only guitar that I needed to play at the then Sportsman’s Bar. The cops busted the junkie but told me the guitar was going to be held as evidence. At the suggestion of a friend I went to see Mr. Whatley. He listened to my story and made a couple of phone calls while I was in his office. After some heated arguing with the Detectives, Mr. Whatley told me where I could go to pick up my guitar.The cost? Zero.
Thanks again, Mr. Whatley.

If UCSB is going to tolerate and promote illegal and/or unlawful behavior, why stop with having just a building for illegal immigrants? How about putting up a building for NAMBLA, the North American Man/Boy Love Association? Aren’t they just misunderstood individuals looking for love? So what that it’s against the law! At UCSB, THEY get to decide which of our nation’s laws are going to be respected, and which ones are not! And if you DARE to question any of this (as one of the posters describes) you are going to either get fired or (God forbid!) called a racist! Oh, the shame of it all! lol!
Why, they could put the building right next to El Centro de Arnulfo Casillas. And next door to that could be the Michael Vick animal abuse and Wanna-be Terrorist resource clinic. And on and on and on----until bedlam.
It is just shameful to see public monies squandered by limousine Liberals who feel so special promoting lawlessness. They should be fired.

Why shouldn’t Clayton rob an Elementary School? After all, elementary school was the best 9 years of his life!

I am SHOCKED by this and other unavoidable things that have happened to me personally. Once we had 15 people in my VW bug and the shocks broke! Can you believe it? And another time my uncle, who weighs 400 pounds, tried to ride my little sister’s hobby horse, and guess what? IT broke too! If only I knew that I could have SUED!

HOORAY!In 1984 I was a high school drop-out with VERY low academic skills. It was a lucky day for me when I found this great school. They took me where I was and encouraged me to advance. After two years I was ready and able to transfer to UCSB where I finished my BA (in three years) and was accepted to the graduate school of education there.
Thank you SBCC for a (so far) great 23 years in education!

I went to La Cuesta High School, and although I didn’t graduate, the school helped to keep me out of trouble. God always has the last laugh, as for the last 23 years I have been teaching at a continuation school. Schools like this save the community money in the long run and are essential in saving kids from jail. Sad to see this one go.
