Very assumptive to elude that Mr. Rowse won't have some stiff competition.

Attention Mesa. Mr. Rowse was not selected as your representative. He was chosen At-Large. This is not an incumbency but instead an opportunity for real leadership.

How to stop rape?

Okay young ladies, you've been warned. Apparently there's a ton of rape going on out there. It's a hostile and scary world and you've got every reason to buy into the fear of living in such a place.

So. As anyone in the military would wear body armor and a helmet to protect themselves in a war zone, you need to as well.

1) STOP DRINKING ALCOHOL and walking around INTOXICATED in this environment that YOU call SCARY.

2) STOP SAYING NO MEANS NO. It actually doesn't, apparently. (Ask any salesperson) No doesn't mean no. No actually means you've gotten too close to the fire and it's time to NOT DRINK ALCOHOL and walk around such a hostile environment in such a way.


It's pretty simple. 95% of these "rapes" would stop if PEOPLE just took their own precautions and stopped acting like the world owed them a red carpet to walk on while DRUNK.

On UCSB Students Call for Tougher Rape Penalties

Dear Sheriff,

Put it into your protocol that during arrests, officers on call are cognizant enough to remove eminent threats prior to apprehension.

Additionally, rate the overall threat based on necessity to grab, block or pursue a prospect or assailant.

This person had a misdemeanor rap sheet. There is a better way of handling these encounters.

We found the corium! We found the corium! Fukushima reactors are now located beyond the floor and in the sea. What are they doing? Radiating plankton, killing it which is causing the sun to warm the oceans with no plankton to take in sunlight and convert it to energy (food) that supports the ocean's animal kingdom.

Thanks GE for building the reactors! For your slogan now is truly ironic. "We bring good things to life".

If that photo is accurate and taken from the Motel 6 parking lot of the cars stolen, then it looks to be an inside theft job from Toyota. (Do I really have to do this type of deduction? Why doesn't the reporter mention the probable theft location?)

If this was an inside theft job then those cars were going international for sure or destined to a chop shop. Which means this was probably more than a drive by vehicle check and more of an excellent piece of work by our crack detectives.

Good work good guys!

10X Revenue? That's the claimed upside potential when most of the business growth has been OUS? I'm all for education of the masses, however, as a LinkedIn member, I'm certain 90% of users are dormant. It does make perfect sense as a job search site and Lynda fits in well here. But there's tons of direct competition in the online education space. Sure, LinkedIn members will now have not far to access a library. Yet I'm beyond comprehending how it's received such a valuation. Congrats to are newly minted local millionaires.

This isn't a roaring economy. It's the endless cashflow and flooding of the liquidity gates from reserve banking cartel's across the globe. Not enough real assets worldwide to satiate the quest for capital.

Nice try Realtor thinking it was your marketing savvy though...

What a comedy show these comments are. Both the disgruntled ex-employees who can't get over losing their jobs. And the bleeding heart brigade that trolls in pretense claiming this McCaw as some type of saint.

The reality? On my daily walk this morning. I noticed a SBNP sitting in the gutter. Reason? There's not enough content to weigh the paper as for the deliveryman to get the paper out the car window and up driveway on the delivery driver's toss.

Such is the destiny of this silly little news rag regardless of all this hubbub.

This basically shows how incompetent people become when they stand behind rules and procedures as opposed to common sense. First the city says it's unsafe to rebuild and to bad, we won't pay you fair compensation for that decision. It takes the courts and huge attorney fees to remedy. (Stephen Wiley says "thanks" for his highest salary and overtime bill of $325k.) Then once remedied, the city goes AGAINST their very own common sense of how it's unsafe, and modifies the rules instead. This means only one of two things: 1) The city incompetently set a rule that was false. 2) The city is participating in gross negligence and allowing a build on unsafe land. Guess what happens if and when that land slides again? These very people can and will sue for damages.

Mandatory water rationing immediately. Start dredging the silt buildup in Gibraltar and Cachuma today. Stop using the desal plant as an illusionary pipe dream. Allow commercial grey water installations for homes and business immediately.
