In defense of my mother, Sally Green I must comment. My mother has been in education for over 40 years and was thrilled when Joyce Powell passed the torch to her (for the Carpinteria area) to be on the Board of Trustees, almost four years ago. This summer she retired from Canalino school where she was principal for seven years. She was so excited to pay full attention to SBCC, Carpinteria Education Foundation, Carp Women's Club, etc. etc. Alas SBCC has taken up much of her time in the last five plus months, there's not much time for other things, at the moment.
Despite all of this, I must tell all of you my mother cares nothing of status symbols, labels, recognition, etc. she does this for SBCC, she actually cares about education and the students. Young, old, toddlers, it doesn't matter the age, she just wants the best for the student. You can all vote for whom you like, but please know that Sally Green really does care about Santa Barbara City College, the students, educators, administrators, the Adult Ed and the Parent-Child Workshops.

Venoco is actually not an evil corporation and has done much in the way of donations for Carpinteria. The problem that many of us have is the way they are going about this whole process. It is only going to a vote because Venoco didn't like the way the City was finding their EIR, it was not going well, so Venoco pulled the plug. They paid non-residents to solicit signatures, telling the real Carpinteria residents they were signing something about their electricity bill. The whole process that Venoco has taken to get this far is shady to say the least.
Many of us are far more concerned about the outcome of this whole thing, than perhaps the oil itself. If this passes it still needs to go through many loops, however Venoco will have a very different stronghold on the situation and the City. This sets a very dangerous precedent not only for Carpinteria, but the County and the entire Coast. Yes, we need oil, but we need it done the best way possible for everyone not just the ones that will really benefit, the Corporations and the Shareholders.
Please read the Initiative you will find more information there, then make your own decision. But we need your help Indy and readers to educate people on this, it is a very dangerous, scary situation.

I too wondered why it was significant that the "Church" Reality was mentioned at all.... Does this have anything to do with the other???
