Thank you, Jackson, finally!
The real solution, of course, is to secure the tracks through eminent domain and charge Union Pacific for its use.
How come the richest State of one of the richest countries in the world does not have regular train service connecting its major cities? Shouldn't we have electrified double-track from Santa Rosa to San Diego?
Did we spend all our money on roads instead?

What part of "zero" does the oil industry and their paid stooges do not understand?
How much more environmental degradation are we supposed to endure for this tantalizing "economic paradise" that keeps slipping further away with each new tax break and measure to unleash economic "freedom"?

You are taking over Nick's job! Well done!
This town desperately needs someone like you, now that the Indy gets a little confused about things like Measure P and seems on its way to follow the News Press descend into geriatrics.
On Excuse Me, Mdm Mayor

Regarding Schneider, you are waking up late. The problem with her is that, given the choice between what may be good for SB versus what may be good for her political career, Helene will betray everything and everyone in order to get ahead.
Did you forget all those inglorious years mimicking Iya Falcone when she thought her position as Mayor was at risk? Her duplicity about Measure B ("let the voters decide")? Her loss in the woods during PlanSB? Where were you, NIck?
Yes, Helene is smart and, when convenient, she will push forward a progressive agenda of social justice to slow gentrification down but, when push comes to shove, she will betray everything she believes in. In this case, the Montecito money.

JarvisJarvis,It's OK to let others have a word in once in a while -life is not about you exclusively. Didn't you learn to raise your hand in kindergarten and wait for your turn?

The HOV lanes are needed, and a wider bridge over Cabrillo is another priority. The rest is BS.

It is extremely pitiful to watch Schneider, Carbajal and Francisco doing whatever it takes to line up Montecito donors for their future election plans!
As far as I can tell, the cost savings and environmental benefits of the Montecito plan are just smoke and mirrors hidden behind vague sketches.
Regardless of how the 101 widening through Montecito proceeds, the loss of vegetation will be enormous -with or without left ramps. Our only hope is an intense re-vegetation program to bring back some of what will be inevitably lost. This, and the replacement of the Cabrillo RR bridge is what Schneider, Carbajal and Francisco should be pushing for.
And why is Jeremy Lindaman calling the shots? Who elected him?

Nick,You are wrong: the City Planning Commission does not support the Montecito Association's alternative plan for the 101 widening. See PC comment letter of June, 2013. PC absolutely opposes truncating the HOV lanes.
