What a sad and unfortunate lose-lose situation. Somehow or the other SBCC manages to fullfill it's educational mission with or without the Administration or it's governing board.

On SBCC Trustees Chided

Interestingly enough, the US constitution doesn't grant the right to a "free education" although we enjoy a number of other inalienable rights. Unfortunately, the California state budget cannot fund a free education either. I take adult education classes and recognize what a privilege it is to have such a high quality program in Santa Barbara that is available at an incredible bargain. I don't mind paying a modest fee for this and SBCC has also made it a high priority to provide financial aid for those in need.

On New Board, Same as the Old Board

All of our children participated in school sports. It brought a much needed dimension to their day-to-day well being but some of the coaches on the high school staff don't have a clue about appropriate behavior with adolescents. Talent and self-control are among the essential traits. Jeschke is a clumsy and easy example. Across the board, many high school coaches need to show demonstrable proof of character to be put on payroll. ADs also need to expect character and provide education and oversight as well.

On Good Buy-Out

Been there and done that!!

Hhhmmm!! I tried alternate forms of transportation while working downtown. I used the bus and it was so full I had to stand and trashed my back. Next, I purchased a commuter lot pass, which was great. When there was rain I took the shuttle and when it was clear, I walked. Even during the early morning hours I kept myself completely alert for traffic. One glimpse in the wrong direction and it was outright scary. In spite of what everyone who never rides the bus or walks opines, the bulb outs and crosswalks are very helpful for those of us are trying to reduce carbon monixide and take advantage of the wonderful environment that we are blessed to enjoy.

We are so lucky to have a wonderful and healthful walking environment in downtown Santa Barbara and Google flags don't help those of us on our feet walking. Visual signals great--electronic signals--how this helps real people!!

Keep on looking for the best solutions for people walking on the Earth!!

On De la Vina-Figueroa Won't Be Safer Soon

Liberty4all...Really?!? You are pulling your kids out of SBCC? As college-age students, your kids ought to make these decisions on their own if they are allowed to think and act on their own.

What about your money? The cost of education at SBCC is basically free so what money, exactly, are you talking about? Money to the Foundation? And, what is the Foundation doing to make the first two years of a college education or vocational education available to those who are truly capable and poor? Out of state tuition? International Tuition? Private school? Perhaps your kids ought to decide!

On An Insider's Colorful History of SBCC Politics

These thugs belong in an outdoor, tent-city, supervised chain gang. Army boot camps are more effective than the parents who raised them or the law enforcement overseeing their incarceration. The Sheriff makes every excuse to rationalize bigger facilities and more expensive staff to oversee what amounts to a zoo. How much do zoo keepers get paid? Do they get overtime or belong to unions? How about drill sargents in the army? Come on, Sheriff Brown! There isn't big money for overtime, over paid law enforcement or fancy digs.

What is the point of this article? SBCC earned it reputation over the last 30 years by providing the best vocational education and 1st two years of post-secondary education available in this community.

The quality and success of SBCC have nothing to do with the board, the current president, or the current administration.

Lanny Ebenstein has done absolutely nothing to contribute to the quality of SBCC and I would like to know whether or not he has health insurance and retirement benefits as a result of his UCSB employment. It's time to come clean, Dr. Ebenstein.

Sheila Lodge is a former mayor. What are her credentials towards the success and history of SBCC and who is Robert Casier? Dr. Kay is the only person who signed this letter and earned the respect of his students and contributed to the quality of SBCC.
Who is Robert Casier?

SBCC will survive based on the contributions of the people who are and were there to serve the educational needs of this community.

Interesting!! So where might this be?

On SBCC Prez and Her Job Search

The new SBCC Board is not collaborative. Surprising that the Prez eeked out those words. Serban hijacked the entire College--her way, get out of her way, or no way.
