Seems no one read what Mr Blankenship said or what he ment to say. He is a gentlemen,and in business to make money. HOW MANY TIMES DID HE HAVE TO GO BEFORE THE PLANNING/POLL BOARD ? HOW MANY RE-DESIGNS AND PLAYING WITH THE POLLS DID HE HAVE TO DO ? I hope he boarded up his properties or what ever bank owns them does asap. The economic and social terrorist (guess workers or whatever you want to call them ) THEY WILL MOVE IN, Happened down the street from me and at least 25 people+ are now living in 3 shifts in a 'middle class' home. Mr Blankenship and his wife are very smart people they can see a city /town in its decline, as did Mr. F. Parker. They dont want to have to put up with any more of this 'city's' goverment and its permits rules and non-sense, while the mad-hatter and her group are filling their pockets, having tea parties. Maybe the Blankenship's can help out with some funding for more police ON STATE STREET, KEEP IT OPEN. YOU MAKE STATE ST. CLOSED TO VEHICLES AND IT BECOMES A NO-MANS LAND, THE GANGS' PLAY GROUND OR HAS THIS GROUP OF DO NOTHINGS THAT ARE IN 'city' HALL, WHILE AWARDING EACH OTHER, CHASED THE BLANKENSHIPS AWAY ALSO. MR AND MRS BLANKENSHIP DONT TURN AND RUN , JOIN WITH OTHER BUSINESS OWNERS THAT ARE FED-UP WITH THE NONSENSE THAT IS GOING ON IN THIS TOWN AND AREA. TAKE A STAND , Now I have heard through the grape vine , APPLE IS 2ND GUESSING ABOUT OPENING UP A STORE HERE BECAUSE OF THE HIGH CRIME RATE , SEEMS SOME ONE AT APPLE LOOKED AT THE TRAFFIC AND THE ACCTUALs (Finance) AND ACTUALs (real people/ crime victims) WHAT THE POLICE & 'city' HALL ARE SAYING AND IT DOES NOT ADD UP ! YOU KNOW WHAT STEVE JOBS AND HIS GROUP WILL TELL THE MAD-HATTER AND HER GROUP TO DO WITH THEIR STICKS , AND IT WONT BE 'LETS DO' LUNCH !

So what else is new ? For a town of this size there seems to be more gangs related fights and stabbings of alot of other towns, ( 100, 000+ since some people , the guess workers, social and economic terrorist is more like it, that dont want to be legally counted ) . SO HOW DOES S.B. NOW RANK IN THE COUNTRY ? SAD TO SAY IN REALITY UP THERE WITH THE BIG BOYS. N.YC. , PHILLY , BOSTON , DALLAS , HOUSTON, and L.A. . The Christmas parade with the gangs on State st at the end of the parade was just one of the many knife fights and gang fights in public ! THESE PUNKS KNOW THEIR PARENTS DONT CARE , THE POLICE DONT SEEM TO CARE. The people of this town seem to be worried about poles and the height of some old buildings , that the owner would get a better return for his money in some other town of 100,000 or some city ! Last week, when the Navy was in port , i would bet the number of gang related problems went down throughout the area. I wonder why ? I walked down State St myself and felt safe , I heard families saying the same thing ! When that knife fight was going on at the Christmas Parade i tried to call the police myself , my cell phone was not working correctly so i went into a store to try to get some one to call the police ! All i heard was , " let them stab each other , at least it will get some of them out of here" . I finally got 911 and was told " well that was an hour ago, we heard something like that ". I watched from inside of Macy's front door as this was going on and i even tried to stop a police car , that car just kept on . SEEMS S.B. IS AFRAID OF THESE PUNKS ,THE POLICE , THEIR PARENTS, ETC . Also notice how no one seems to know the description of the attacker or the car but a few days later in another gang area of the city another stabbing takes place ! So as shops close and State St is becoming a battle ground for gangs , the tourist money is going to other cities , some much larger , because people feel safer. I heard a friend from out of town say to another out of towner , "THE ROPE MUST STOP HERE , THE GANGS TOOK OVER THIS TOWN, THIS USE TO BE A REALLY NICE TOWN " . Sad image for a town of this size and by the way the Navy was waiting for it , i was told by one M.P.

About time , maybe they will start to close down some of these dirty unwashed places in the area and re-store Santa Barbara which was known for its good restaurants! If some of these dumps and high priced ones were in other NORMAL cities around this country they would be closed by the board of health at once. To "Binky " no its not "COOL" its normal in every other city and most counties in the USA. P.S. Kitchen help PLEASE WASH YOUR HANDS AFTER USING THE REST ROOMS, wear gloves. Its time for the real Santa Barbara to stand up , take back your restaurants, close half of that trash on State St. , THAT MIGHT HELP WITH THE DAILY GANG WARS AND KNIFE FIGHTS ALSO . Maybe its time to clean out city hall also and the Police Dept. since they dont care about whats going on. On State St. Add more police , and inspect and get info on all the kitchen help in this county Now ! No Binky its not " COOL" ITS A MATTER OF HEALTH FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC ! P.S. I WAS AT A 4 STAR EATERY, THE OTHER NIGHT, ONE OF THE KITCHEN HELP CAME OUT OF THE MENS ROOM AFTER DOING HIS BUSINESS WITHOUT WASHING HIS HANDS , AFTER I TOLD THE " MANAGER " ALL I GOT WAS A BLANK LOOK. NEED I SAY MORE, I WENT OVER TO THE TABLE AND TOLD EVERYONE IN MY PARTY AND WE ALL WALKED OUT... One More thing , #1 Comment from all over the country now about SBC eateries. " Not unless i have to , most of them are unsafe or just plan dirty" SAD COMMENTS I have heard !
