Who is suffering? Just do the right thing. If you are having an outrageously large party at a private home, GET A PERMIT. Big whoop. Everyone can still party, property rights are still intact, no need to get panties in a bunch...

I dunno boys, I think it's bad and it's only going to get worse...
"We have a dilemma in California - we're currently removing existing dams that conserve rainwater and allowing it to flow into the ocean so that it's available for steelhead trout migration. "
Yep, file that along with all the other ways we're destroying the environment in order to keep our lawns green.
"Patience, prudence and persistence will get us where we need to be. Put the pressure on the state to get big ag to use water wisely. ... Meanwhile, maybe it would be wise to stop granting new building permits locally."
Yes. Yes, and Yes. However, I worry that this drought will be here for the long haul. Let's just keep all our priorities on the table, and not throw the rest of the environment out with the bathwater.

Yowza, I agree with nativeson on this one. More water is not coming naturally, and everything we do to artificially bring water here is beyond detrimental to the environment. The best thing to do is greatly reduce using water. Period.
In 13 years my house is paid off and I assumed I'd sell it and go retire somewhere NOT in SB county. Maybe I need to do that now, let the next owner worry about how much their house will be worth in our "paradise" that has no water to drink. In 13 years I might have to beg people to buy my house.
Why can't the richies in Montecito see this? Well, maybe they are beginning to, as the likes of Steve Martin, Don Johnson, and Drew Barrymore have already sold.

I'm not sure if it's still the case, but when I went to SBCC and UCSB (I was born in Goleta, btw, before you get upset that I might have been a transplant) I paid a fee each quarter/semester for the bus. Regardless of if I used the bus or drove. So I think the students fund the busses pretty much themselves.

I'm actually with Jarvis2 on this. And the new building will be MASSIVE compared to it's neighbors. SB does not need massive housing, does not need more low-income senior housing, does not have the water for new housing!
I thought people moved to Florida in retirement? Why don't low income seniors here in SB move to a place with a lower cost of living? Seems like the easiest solution to me.

dou4now: The student would have to be convicted FIRST, and then the schools could expel or discipline them. There's no way the school would have legal ground to stand on if the student hadn't been convicted first.

14noscams - here's a link to the proposed water rate increase info: http://www.santabarbaraca.gov/gov/dep...
Where do you see the increased water meter charge, at 65%? Can you tell us more about which charge, specifically, you're talking about? I'm curious to learn more about what you're saying about illegal city utility billing. Would you please elaborate further?
I'm serious. Please elaborate.

Came here to comment on the lush, green lawns, but kook has me beat. I guess the statewide drought doesn't occur on that property?

Denunzio sounds like a real winner. I'm sorry to be so outwardly judgemental, but wow. Hopefully he can clean up his act.
