What a heart-breaker. I had a great time when I stayed there a year ago. Was treated like a queen while actually being a pauper. I wish you much success in your ongoing ventures, and a big hug for this loss. Shameful for the 80 yr old owner. I bet it sits idle for some years. SB landlords are sharks, cold-hearted, dead-eyed sharks.

God, I love me some Keith Puccinelli!! He's a great artist, a good-humored man and I bet a super-duper husband. Wish I could be at the opening and see the show, but I have vacated for parts NW. Sharon

The tone of the comments here are so mean-spirited. Glad I moved away from your horrible tight-ass town.

Our Daily Bread, Ze'ev, Laurie, gave me my first job in SB: delivering bread. The hardest part of the job was getting there around 5 AM and bagging the loaves on that old machine. I felt like Lucy Ricardo working the conveyor belt. I loved the "culture" that happened in the alley between Soj and ODB, and in the back between Jimmy's and Soj, ODB. Good memories and a very valuable time in my life. Congratulations! Sharon Bettis

Most of you sound like immature, unreasonable brats. Brain injuries often result in a lack of impulse control and violent behavior. It's awful and a shame, but that doesn't mean the people around them who try to contain and treat them should be blamed for increasing the means needed to provide safety.

First, hurray for the Grand Jury... someone with some authority needs to illuminate this issue in SB County to the point where there has to be some accountability. But to say that the Bd of Sup's are afraid of the union is over-kill. The union works closely with the Board, and the union rightfully advocates for the patients' needs and the staff needs. The staff deserve every penny they earn, they do a very difficult job with heart and perseverance. I know there are some useless admin staff, but not all, and the front line staff are dedicated and hard working people who are walking the talk that those of us who are commenting here want to see SB county offer. Go Get 'Em.
On High Price for Neglect

The comment about the County MH dept being shameful for hiring back its own patients is obviously from a person who is not familiar with the practice of hiring peer to peer employees, and people who are functioning at a level where they can contribute to our culture based on their experience. Wow, lady, do you want people to just lay around even if they are qualified to work and want to work?

Hey, hey, kids slow down! Who said you'll never be able to afford anything there? For corn sake, do you know what every night of the week of the rest of the year and decade holds? NO. I just booked tickets for a world class dance ensemble, coming in May, and I got the top of the line BOX SEATS for $40. Try doing that in LA, SF, NY. You won't be able to. And, I'll be sitting up there like the Queen, flask in my jacket, friends at my side, opera glasses on a stick, watching every move and spying on the other patrons in a world-class, intimate venue. It's LIVE THEATER, Baby, SUPPORT THE ARTS!! Dress up and splurge!!
On Granada's Re-Opening: Suitably Grand?

Finally, as I read through the comments it seems as if people are remembering that the evidence in a case is presented in a court room, not a newspaper. I agree with "livinginsb" that the article written by Seefeld was skewed. I also attended the trial and was there most days. Seefeld did not mention the DNA evidence found on Frimpong, his scrotum, penis and under his fingernails. She did not mention the time and effort spent by the prosecutor delineating the different forms of bodily secretions and the ability to somewhat differentiate between sources of the fluid, such as tears, saliva, vaginal fluids. This was presented in court, through scientists with the benefit of being cross-examined as thoroughly as either side desires. Seefeld also states that the jury was somehow composed by the prosecutor, but has she forgotten the jury is decided by both prosecution and defense attorneys? Both sides have the ability to remove jurors based on both "cause" and no cause whatsoever. I suggest Seefeld look at her own motives and be more honest and balanced in her perspective next time. Or perhaps the Independent edited the article for space and left out some of these facts. Nonetheless, it comes across as a hack piece.
