Meanwhile gangs thrive because of communication and visits from the outside world. Want to see gangs get crippled on the outside of prison, cut ALL ties. If someone gets 3 years, then nobody should be able to talk for three years to them, period. No more shot calling behind prison gates, drugs eliminated from prison, etc etc. Draconian you say? Yup... It's prison!!!

The only thing that bothers me is that when people go missing and there are immediate announcements, they usually say, "there is concern because he/she is without medication, or may have a known (undisclosed) medical condition, which is why the search is so important". If you want to actually attract help from the public, you need to disclose needed and known information. I understand if she gave indications of suicide, but even that can be tactfully addressed in a public statement without divulging private matters.

That is a one sided poll. Try adding " yes or no, I don't use politics or values of employees in my decision to patronize businesses". If I am hungry and you are selling something I want, I don't care if you are trying to make burning kittens legal; I would think you are crazy, but make good food.

Congrats to a great accomplishment!! I am just slightly nervous that we have someone patrolling with less than a month on a motorcycle. ( and someone who crashed in training to boot) I can't imagine someone patrolling in a cop car who has only driven a car for only one month. I have a friend who has only ridden a motorcycle for a year and am nervous when I ride with him ( I have ridden since I was 8 years old) It takes years of real experience before anyone is truly competent on the road, and maybe more before they should be an expert motor cop. I hope for the best, am happy that they are training the officers to be versatile, and they are giving women the same opportunities as men!!

To add to the mystery in the name..some theories out there point to a man who last name is Funke who's family owns most of the property on the west side of Kimberly Avenue (some say the westerly border of the zone; mission creek)

to LYZ HOFFMAN, Can you do a follow up article that explains what Goleta is doing different from what Santa Barbara was not able to do, to still have an ordinance that is enforceable? And if they even enforce the No Sleeping ordinance?

I think it's not the youth drinkers causing problems in the neighborhoods...last time I checked it was the homeless alcoholic grifters and bums contributing to "the deterioration of the quality of life in the surrounding neighborhoods"

Ease up Tera, the article didn't say whether he was clinically diagnosed before or after he took the job.. As a parent I would be concerned that teachers are having mental issues, or suffer needing medication.. yes i am not expert but if i am like you and look up on the internet.....There are two exceptions to the requirements of Title I of the ADA:
First, an employer is not required to provide an accommodation if it will impose an "undue hardship" on the operation of its business such as accommodations that are excessively costly, extensive, substantial, or disruptive, or would fundamentally alter the nature or operation of the business.
Second, an employer may refuse to employ or provide accommodations to an individual who poses a "direct threat" to the health or safety of him/herself or other employees in the workplace. The determination that an individual poses a direct threat to self or others cannot be made simply based on stereotypical generalizations about mental illness, but may be based only on objective evidence from a treatment provider or another credible source that the individual’s present condition makes him or her a direct threat to self or others.
Hence, more evaluations! Look.. sounds like the principal was out of line and David is a good guy. I am stating my opinion, he even calls them disabilities.
On Teacher Files Lawsuit Against School District

I am no expert, but these conditions are not protected disabilities for employment. Scrutizing a teacher for anxiety, not being able to pay attention, and being depressed should be policy not prohibited, especially around children. Threatening emails are serious allegations, but if they are ultimatums for performance, they may fall within the law, but outside of district policy. What are the physical disabilities?
