I commuted for years from downtown to upper State Street; shopping, recycling, lunchtime errands all easier than messing with a car. Now, for one year I've lived in northern Connecticut; no safe streets, no designated paths, no parking facilities, lousy weather. Oh, and no coffeehouses. These are my top criteria for judging a place liveable, let alone civilized. So of course I am coming back to SB/Goleta. People, I'll see you out there! By the way, have customized fenders put on, wear your crazy-bright gear, and join your bike clubs and the Bike Coalition. Your safe future is in your own hands.

The closure of the Sisquoc is a sensible decision; you need steelhead to fish for steelhead! More importantly, restoring a viable population is the right thing to do. The fish is a "local". Of course the Sisquoc should have been closed to avoid overfishing back in 1997--Thank goodness some tenacious people do more than flap their lips when it comes to preserving the wild. Thank you, EDC and Fish and Game!

"In addition to Saran Wrap, Ziploc bags, and those adorable Scrubbing Bubbles, Dow Chemical has given the world ruptured breast implants, Agent Orange, and a number of other unsavory "innovations." Is that what UCSB will help them do more of? Check out theyesmen.org, search on "the truth about Dow". The DOW Infomercial you just published is missing highly relevant, easy-to-find data on Dow's history and of campus activity around that company. MIght we also see a line about Bhopal?
