NattyG makes fun of a situation that scientists and farmers recognize as a crisis. How surprising.

Since the article is about leaking pipes and lack of infrastructure maintenance, I regret that JarvisLamberton has hijacked the conversation with his focus on the homeless. Since he thinks that ridding Santa Barbara of homeless people to be more important than fixing pipes and other sources of pollution, perhaps we should nominate him to be our Homeless Abatement Czar. He could be judge and jury making all decisions about who gets put on the bus to Trona. Hope he doesn't spot me on a Saturday when I'm in my weekend chore rags or he might be paying my way to Trona too. As usual his head is in the clouds. Abundant complaints with no reality based solutions. My suggestion is that he quit the Tea Party and start paying taxes again so we can afford to pay our deferred maintenance bills.

JarvisLamberton is correct in pointing out that there is significant waterway pollution caused by Santa Barbara's transient population. In fact all of SoCal experiences the same problem, although I would wager a bet that people's pets contribute far more fecal pollution than the homeless do. Just walk a creek sometime, or better yet participate in a creek clean up day and you will see it all. Has Jarv ever cleaned a creek? Doubtful. White linen clothing and penny loafers don't fare well when doing dirty work. Does Jarv have a positive solution or is he content to poke and run as usual?

Forgive my naïveté NattyG, but I've never associated news of a bankruptcy with the term "great news". To me bankruptcy means reorganization/lost jobs, creditors getting screwed for money owed to them, hardship for local companies trying to make payroll, and lost revenue/ taxes to pay for all the firefighters and schools you NoP folks promised. It just looks like an opportunity for vultures to strip the carcass to me. It is common practice for polluters to use Bancruptcy Code to shift cleanup costs to the EPA( taxpayers). If ERG has left a mess in their wake, will you think it "great news" if the public ends up shouldering that burden? I know it's all about the money to you guys, but where is all the concern for the good of the county as a whole that you guys have been telling us about?

Consider this- for many election cycles a major platform issue for Republicans has been frivolous lawsuit and tort reform. Yet every time a Republican loses a local race, it ends in a frivolous lawsuit. Huh? I wonder if Pappas has ever paid Farr the hundreds of thousands owed for his little hissy fit?

A rule of thumb to live by- stay out of crosswalks after six pm if you see Jarvis Lamberton coming down the road.

Too bad nattyg hasn't been able to find a job that doesn't involve lying and polluting. Things haven't changed much since Unocal employees covered up their dirty deeds at the Guadalupe Dunes production facilities for parts of two decades. 12 million gallons of toxic laden diluent leaked into the dunes, groundwater, beaches and the ocean. Just one more example of oil industry criminality. An industry that nattyg so ardently supports and obviously supports him.

Agree with ahem that Jarvis Lamberton misses the mark when criticizing this story as somehow trotting out an old story. The point is that Kunzia won a Pulitzer, something that will not happen ever again at the SBNP under current ownership.

Is this comments section an extension of the Twilight Zone or what? You scarydycat conspiracy theorists really think Army Special Forces wouldn't be putting bullets in the middle of foreheads if ISIS had camps along our border? You guys are trippin.
