Botany - so, despite the age-old tradition of college students (and people of that same age group) having loud parties and drinking alcohol, we should just expect young people to STOP partying? It's just not reasonable. Kids party. FACT. There is NOTHING in the world that will stop that short of armed guards marching the streets all night (and that might not work either).
The reality is, that young people in college will party. More laws won't stop it. Just look at Floatopia and its morph into Deltopia which will morph into something else probably.
Drunk college kids are a part of life. They will never change. Sure, there may be some considerate ones, but the majority get drunk and loud. That's just how it is. This is the EXACT reason I would never move to IV or near SBCC if I wanted to live in a quiet area.

Ok, I know I will probably be branded a racist, but I honestly want to know, exactly how were Latinos restricted from the voting process? Is the "blatant discrimination" based on the fact that there are not more "Latinos" in the Council? Or are there claims that Latinos were some how stopped or hindered from placing actual votes on election day?
I mean, just because more Latino candidates didn't win doesn't sound like "racism" to me. But then again, I'm white so I guess I don't get to make that determination. I even asked a Latino friend of mine why having Murillo and Francisco on the Council is still racist (that's 2 out of 6 or 33%) and he told me the Francisco "isn't a "Latino, he's a Spaniard."
Ok, now I get it? Nope.

"The majority of cases arose in children who were unvaccinated."
Above is fact in regard to this situation.

Sorry, let me qualify my last post - I meant to refer to VAPORIZED marijuana smoke, not regular old pot smoke from a joint, etc.

Reality - the studies that have proven marijuana smoke to be less harmful than cigarettes are too voluminous to cite here. Maybe JohnTieber will post some sources for us.
But seriously, until pot is legalized, why would anyone write letters about the smoke? That's like complaining that no one is writing letter about the dangers of smoking crack (not that pot and crack are even close to comparable dangers). It's not a big enough social issue to complain about. Now cigarettes and e-cigs, well, that's a different kitten kabboodle (or is it kit and Kaboodle?) You get my drift.

Nuff - You are free to make any decision you want. I don't give a flying rat's ass honestly. BUT, I'm free to make my decisions too. And my decision is to send my children to school with other kids.
So, with that said, keep "you and yours" AWAY FROM MINE! My son has a weakened immune system due to serious asthma so please, for the sake of my child and all the others out there with similar situations, keep your unvaccinated self and/or child(ren) away from mine.

Oops - I missed that part of the very short article about that says the new bill would increase the fines. My bad! But still.....

$100 fine? That's nothing. How much does the permit cost (in dollars and time)? Probably cheaper and easier to just pay the measly fine than deal with going downtown, finding parking, dodging aggressive panhandlers and protesting Aztec dancers or blabbering racist Tea Party folks from OC all in the effort to obtain a permit.

Tabatha and Makwa - I think you both (intentionally?) dodged the main point. What the author is asking, is "why aren't ALL the descendants of the Chumash benefiting from the Casino?" Why are only 150 or so out of thousands of local Chumash reaping the benefits of the Casino?
So, I'll ask again, why?
