Be careful Union. You do realize that there are many out there who can get a class B license who DONT have a job.
And MTD, if you cut some of your ABSURD executive salaries you may be able to afford this contract! Where are all the fee hikes going if your not paying your employees better?

So not only did they NOT pay for their cars, they sold them to unknowing buyers. I would LOVE to have comments from the buyers to find out if they bought the cars at market prices? Were they able to easily register the vehicles? OH, Did these two pay DMV and TAXES ?
Have fun the FEDS boys!

They all sound like good fits for the office. Sheila cant take responsibility for her team as the leader.
The others ones sound like they have a political agenda of their own, they will fit lovely into the board!

Duh? Was there any doubt?
He came from Bishop Diego H.S before CC. If anyone can make a school with limited resources pull together a competitive and successful team its Tim!
Also, Please do NOT forget. Its not just his recruiting or his staff. Its his persistence, love of the game and overall rigid coaching style that brings out the best in any of his players!

Does working for the GOOD of your constituents ring a bell?
Seriously, I hope everyone knows that your personal opinion outweighs the GOOD of the many!
Secondly, If you had any education you would be intelligent enough to work out a plan where EVERYONE can be happy versus delaying it further and "sweeping it under the carpet".
We will lead by your example and make sure we sweep you under the carpet when your term is up!
Why such outspoken comments? Have you ever seen someone suffer from chemotherapy? Unable to eat... vomiting it all up if they do, in miserable pain; unable to sleep. Sure they are SOME doctors who dont require a physical even to get a "recommendation" but you ALIENATE those who DO have legitimate needs. Next time consider the FEW when you consider yourself!

Thank you for your LOGIC!! I am surprised that you live in the "valley" and DO NOT indulge in MJ and still use LOGIC and COMMON SENSE!!
Preservation of Los Olivos sounds like Tea Partiers to me...the "Drug War" is just a parellel to the Race War. Just some elitist people who need something to put down to make themselves feel better. IE Whites needs to oppress the minority ; or in this case Wine Drinkers needing to secure their demographic by oppressing Cannabis otherwise OMG they MIGHT LOSE MARKET SHARE. The "Santa Ynez Cannabis Fear" lol!
Anyways, thanks again for your comments, I enjoy reading an impartial commentary whether or not it supports my argument!

Lars failed to mention an impact of 100 families salaries may only charge the demand for labor in markets that the city hires from such as janitorial, maintenance, etc, etc.
My concern is if people encouraged by this also want to raise the wage of all employees in Santa Barbara. It will drive the cost of goods up, it will also make it harder for local business to compete.
Chains and corporate stores can afford losses for a couple years at a store to corner the market then dominate and price gouge... Ie Best Buy etc now that all the electronic stores are closed in the area. etc.*Not saying its insanely expensive but nothing like a "best buy".

Ask a materials engineer!
Simple answer... They used the WRONG kind of screws to mount the shot pins. When the concrete absorbed moisture as all concrete does (some from the ground and some from the leaky roofs) Leaking after 8 years? SUE the construction company! The concretes bond on the surface of the screws weakened because of the moisture content and viola the screws came out!
Test the moisture content of the concrete and test it against "cured" levels.... you will see that higher concentrations of water (more moist cement) means that it doesn't pass materials engineering / stress testing standards

Why would it need to differentiate REP/DEM? Does all politics have to be discerning one from the other? Its not all about separation sometimes UNITY is the ONLY answer!
