As much as I am against joining the military and that I am anti war (I went to UCSB) , I think that high schools are the most appropriate place to recruit. It's when kids enter the military career when they turn 18. It is a viable career path towards an actual job. Many college recruitment focuses not so much on career but just to get into the college, where as career tabling occurs at most colleges. We have huge student debt these days, and many college grads have no clue what they want to do for a living, and many vocational skills are being outsourced to migrant workers at the lowest and highest pay levels. High school is a great place for military to set up recruitment centers. Although kids need to see the realistic career paths of duty and service within the military, so that they can understand how to make decisions (and even what path they will make instead of the military in order to save up for their educational goals. Education is almost free, whereas degrees are not...i predict there will be a big shift in appreciating actual skill instead of expensive pieces of paper called degrees. There is a growing gap among parents opting for their kids to be home schooled, which in the future will produce more self education skill set building vs attending physical class. The new generation, for lack of financial resources will need to have real options, and i predict the military will increase civil and vocational programs in order to fill domestic demands. Back to the topic, if they are recruiting at the high school, parents, educators and the school need to also educate the impressionable minds about other options (other than 4-year colleges and military) Give the kids the whole picture.

Who cares if 12am is noon or midnight. If the city were writing tickets at 3pm, under your logic, then you can get angry...but thats not happening.

Call it revenue generation, but that many people violating the signs, it cant be the police fault. A discussion with business owners needs to take place to find out if they support the removal of restrictions.

I have lived in SB for 24 years and know that at some point I will hit that age or time when i will start to complain about how good things use to be. I think that no matter where you live, the same complaint is universal. It's part of getting old. Rather than complain, adding your wisdom and knowledge so that newer generations don't make the same mistakes. Technology moves at rapid pace. I am sure that delivery drones, self driving cars, and crazy technology will bug me, but be embraced by the newer gen.

On The Mayor Just Wants to Have Fun

I was there shortly after the incident, so i saw no action. What baffled me is when I got on the scene was why a visibly majorly injured man was laying on the ground in a pool of blood with cuffs on. They let him lay there for what seemed like a long time, when i witnessed the police walk the other guy into the Mercado area, sit him down and interview him on the other side of the food booth away from the back of the restaurant. We were trying to guess what happened, who may have been at fault. We left thinking that the guy bleeding must have clearly done something big in front of witnesses in order for the police to be confident to let him just lay there in his own pool of blood. The other guy was unscathed, but visibly upset and aggressive in his manor. Without details, its hard to tell. I think there was tons of witnesses, and I believe he may have a valid case if he can get someone to testify on his behalf. Police officers have a hard duty during fiesta, and usually use zero tolerance. This was near the end of the night and most people had left the plaza, so it was not a packed fiesta riot atmosphere by any means..
