Both Margret and John worked for The Independent back in the 1980s in the classified sales department.

They were soft-spoken and quite pleasant to speak with, very concerned with environmental issues and healthy eating.They both seemed very well-educated, and well-aware of the comings and goings within the community.

And "bigt" is in no way privy to any stand by the Independent, other than what has been published as an Endorsement, usually in an Editorial around election time.

"bigt" needs to make his arguments by speaking for himself.

Although Darryl Genis is a long-time and much appreciated advertiser, The Independent in no way "vouches" for or against his integrity.

Such loyalty is much appreciated!

It is a common misperception that the Independent was in an earlier life the News & Review. Much less often, a long-time Santa Barbaran may think it evolved from the Santa Barbara Weekly.

Neither idea is correct, in fact, although in the past 24 years I've never developed a simple, pithy description of melding two rival news organizations.

It's safe to say the Santa Barbara Independent was born of those two earlier Santa Barbara newspapers, when in 1986 the ambitions and staff were merged, the older companies quietly retired.

And there's about five of us still working here after all those years.

Extremely classless move to produce a press release with no mention of the former Head of School, Nelda Nutter, a women who devoted well over 17 years of her life to bettering Montessori Center School.

Shame on the Board, the Development Director Jenelle Osborne, and the Board President, Celeste Andersen.

Great guy and great tribute, John. Him and Bergmann, who we also lost a while back to another unfortunate illness, were two of my most profound sporting influences.

Hanging out with Adams and BSing after boxing class is a great memory.

Jhern: Your statement "The customer buys some advertisments and part of that deal includes a plug like this one," is patently false.

Such an exchange may happen elsewhere, but in the 23 years I've been running The Independent, such a quid pro quo has never existed (except in your cranky commentary).

Such a reckless and unsupported ideation renders the rest of your commentary suspect.

If it wasn't clear, my intent was to bring an end to the excessive back & forth between the two of you. No need for you to lobby on my behalf.

This is the info, direct from the SBIFF Director:

"You can purchase single tickets the day of the show. I would recommend heading towards the larger venues where they're showing movies like the Lobero theatre and the Arlington (all day Monday the Arlington is screening movies.) Or attend the off-peak times like 8 am, 10 am, 1pm and 10pm. If you do not have a pass, I would evade the Metro theatre at 4pm and 7pm screenings. Priority is given to passholders (they go in first) and then single ticket holders. You can also purchase a mini-pak which entitles you to four admissions or two people for two shows or four friends to one screening. There is also a 10 film mini-pak. I hope this answers your question. And I hope you're able to enjoy the Festival."

All the best,

Good question; you should contact the SBIFF ticket locations; they have promised some sort of exchange for the canceled Director's panel. (And contact us with that information so we can help get the word out.)
