The first time my husband took me to Kauai in 2006, back when we were still just dating, UB40's music became our theme song. The few radio stations our little rental car would get played a good deal of reggae and "Here I Come" and "Don't Break My Heart" was on nearly every hour. Whenever we longed for the warm trade winds of the island we would play UB40 and be taken back to that magical week.
In September of 2007 we returned once more, this time to be married. Not 30 minutes on island and "Here I Come" was on the radio again! In all the emotion of getting married, I actually cried while I sang my heart out, my husband belting it out with me, despite the eye rolling. We made sure to include a good bit of UB40 at our reception and to this day whenever we hear them, the magic our very first trip comes back like those warm trade winds.

Why is it necessary to berate people in your comments? I just dont get it the judging that goes on here. Comment on the article, not the commuting behaviors of others who leave comments.
That said...
Whole Foods is a great addition to the community, think of the number of jobs it will create. Not to mention that Lazy Acres may have to drop their price a bit, dont think that would hurt anyone!

I agree that something has to be done to put an end to this gang violence before it escalates to guns, and we have small children and other innocents caught in the crossfire. The State of California continually cuts programs to help fund our local agency's efforts in curbing this violence. There are many programs out there aimed at getting to these kids before they are on probation with gang terms and conditions, however without proper funding, they can only help so many and they usually dont get referred until after they have been arrested.
Furthermore our local law enforcement seems inept at doing anything (the police are too busy catching people driving through crosswalks in Goleta or catching speeders on De la Vina) and even the witnesses to assualts aren't calling the it me or does this appear to me a trifecta of apathy?
