God, what fun! We used to run over to Jimmy's while serving food over at The Soj. Wally would buy us tequila shots and we'd run back. Also lots of fun after Cahoots shows over at Alhecama. Care to sidle up soon, Mother?

Ahhhh, Alex, what a nice, smart, open and inviting soul. He was always warm to me, guided me, and laughed at life with me. I honor him and his wisdom. I was lucky to have known him. Rest In Peace, Alex.

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.

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?
