Sounds like this judge has a great head on his shoulders. Playing by the rules, being a good neighbor and keeping integrity with your agreements is the way to go. Sometimes, I really appreciate the law. Human beings don't naturally go towards abiding by the above ideals and need to be directed, obviously.

I totally agree with you, East Beach. It's like everyone flapping their gums is just feeding off of the other's fabricated drama. It's actually quite funny to watch. It happens quite a bit, here on this blog!

Oh, you guys. It sure is easy to hide behind a keyboard, isn't it? It would appear that the legislative branch of the county will decide. Don't quit your day jobs!

Why are you harping on the neighbors? If you've read anything about the issues re: Elings and the county, you'd have seen that there's a noticably huge problem with the Elings Park Foundation exhibiting difficulty with honoring their agreements: not just with the CREF and the county but also with their neighbors. If you'd have watched the proceedings Board of Supervisors meeting on TV, you might have also noticed a lack of representation for Elings side and a very large number of (apparently intelligent and respectful neighbors) on the opposite side.
The EPF also said on the record that they had "no intention of honoring those agreements" regarding the CREF in the first place. This was stated by someone who said that he represented their legal defense! Also, you might have read that the county has sent many letters and given them many, many chances to step up to the plate, re-evaluate, re-negotiate. Wow, no surprise that there's been NO response from Elings.
The EPF appears to be attempting to play "look at the silly monkey" by pointing to the neighbors in order to distract from themselves, nothing more, nothing less. Get your facts straight, people. Your fact-free words and judgements are all lost in the smoke-screen haze. Not that this is a bad thing...

"The executive functions of the frontal lobes involve the ability to recognize future consequences resulting from current actions, to choose between good and bad actions (or better and best), override and suppress unacceptable social responses..." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frontal_...) I am a proponent of this sentencing reform and always have been. Young people are simply unable to fully comprehend the future consequences of their actions until they're in their 20's, due to lack of frontal lobe development. This doesn't mean that they are totally off the hook for their actions. I believe that they need to be educated about this issue and know that they're responsible for their own adjustments in thinking. However, I believe that it's wrong to punish someone (who's essentially developmentally disabled until about the age of 25) with a life-sentence.

So, I'm wondering what resources there are in Santa Barbara for families who are dealing with suicides and/or suicide prevention? If this is really as much as an epidemic as it appears, I think it's appropriate to have some links and numbers for those who need them included as a follow-up. Can we please get some info here? Thanks.

Yes, welcome back Dr. Wright! I've heard such great things about you and your work. I'm relieved to know that the animals are getting this type of care now and also that you've hired back many of the former employees. Sounds like a win-win situation.

No words but just love for you and your family outpouring from this community. I have friends who know your family and have yet to meet you but your love for life and humanity shone through your son. I was inspired to watch the memorial service and inspired to "seek peace and pursue it" through the support of the Avi Gross-Shaefer Fund. Thank you for the light you gave and give to the world.

This just makes me really happy. He's an immense talent and it's nice to see him appreciated while he's still at his best. He truly deserves all the accolades that come his way and I'm grateful to him for what he's given to us through his craft. Also, nice to know that he's got a fantastic support system (his wife, Sue) as well!
