Sorry to offend VetteGuy but politics are becoming an issue. Goleta has approved the addition of over a thousand new homes and several thousand hotel rooms that will be built within the next couple years. How will this affect our serene way of life? Remains to be seen. At least it is "our" choice. The airport and UCSB impact our way of life without any offsets - expanding and bring thousands of people onto our roads without so much as a "may I?" There's the politics for you. Can we get the County to force them to either be accountable for their actions and/or pay their own way in the form of public transportation and infrastructure? Does anyone sitting in the GCC (besides Johnny and maybe Roger) even care?
Please support the candidates for GCC who are not funded by the Chamber of Commerce this November.

Time to look to the election! Let's get one more reasonable person in there to offset the Idiot(s) at the helm. Who will run for our Goleta City Council? Please step forward now so we can mobilize voters.

Sevendolphins needs to remember that ALTHOUGH shopping/spending areas like Costco, Bacara, and the Fairview/Calle Real business district serve a larger area than the City of Goleta, only Goletans pay for the trash on the streets around these areas, and deal with the traffic and added air pollution from these. I can't imagine Mesa people dealing with the impact from a Costco.
Sandon71 needs to check the logic behind Goleta city line choices. These were chosen to omit those near the Patterson border who did NOT want to become Goletans, who prefer to hope for SB City inclusion. Isla Vista was omitted because the huge services burden would prevent most Goletans from voting for incorporation, and wisely so - these costs should be born by UCSB. We Goletans continue to be walked all over by their policies that impact our daily life without one iota of input from we who are most affected. Heil, UCSB! (GCity Council wake up and fight back!)
We deal with SB's airport pollution and traffic too!

Thanks to fenwayne for helpful observations. Tailbear: the Feds have relaxed the rule against heavy machinery inside the wilderness area, according to the Fire Chief while speaking on the Channel 20 fire update. He is thankful for the super wide 'dozers'. Note to tailbear and the other whiners: you probably could go help serve meals or something if you want to help those who are in the line of danger. Don't complain, go help! Or sit on your butt and complain. Your choice.

I've been hearing a lot from / about this man for a while now - his fight is admirable - you should always fight for your rights - but I believe in this case he's wrong. He doesn't pay sales tax - his customers do. Only he is exempt from tax. Chris
