Aren't the Chumash the original ambassadors of the land in and around what's now Santa Ynez? It seems like they no longer want to care for a protect the lands and resources. Their facility is already taxing on not just water usage, but on the natural landscape and current town as established before the Casino. Personal beliefs about gambling aside, how to they expect water to magically appear for this development, where water does not currently exist? Why do they think their expansion deserves the water (that will hopefully come back someday), and not the long-existing local farms? Should the farms be denied water just so the Chumash can expand? And how will public safety be addressed? The Chumash will need their own fire department in case of emergency at the facility. The town of Santa Ynez does not need extra policing, but the area will for the added customers of the casino. Will SYV look like a police state soon?
It just doesn't fit. Stop the expansion.

The title was about a wedding - the story was about the death penalty? Wow, Indy.

Davy, how short sighted. Mr Rowse lives here and according to this questionnaire, SB is the place he'd most like to live. Of course, he is pro-his own business. Aren't we all? But seeing as it's a SB business, doesn't the success of his business directly translate to a success of SB? He's successful, the restaurant is, the city is.

The name of the 16 year old at the wheel isn't being released, but his 18 year old brother's name is, and his father's name sure is - not hard to deduce who the kid is. Is that some sort of joke, Indy?

Botany, remove your head from your posterior. Electricity is being used to power railroads in many other countries around the world. Pet rock thinkers such as yourself help keep them from proliferating in the USA. And since I know you don't have the brain cells required to make the connection, I'll give you the punchline: the electricity to power those railroads comes from clean power like wind and solar.
We have to stop thinking so close to our own geography and our own today. Is fracking bad today? Some say no. Some have gotten really sick. Some have seen much pollution. All I know is my sister and my friends are having kids. I don't want these kids to be left with a planet that's a disaster because we wanted to retain those few million $ from a couple of Santa Barbara wells. Money to the oil industry? Or a clean planet for our progeny? I'm for the latter.

This story isn't about a couple smoking a little bit of pot, the guy that was arrested was dealing cocaine while on bail for dealing cocaine. Much more dangerous surroundings.

"These local elderly residents cannot opt out of long-term bond issues like the SBCC bond, like they can opt out of school district parcel taxes."
I can opt out of my Hope School taxes??? Sweet! I just saved $38 a year! </sarcasm>

I'm with howgreen... and skresdent2 - and to an extent Bendy. My next door neighbor and I stopped watering our lawns last October. In April we started reusing the tub tap water ("running it to get hot") in our toilets. We have changed how we do our dishes to use less water and we sparingly water our vegetable garden only.
WE ARE THE ONLY TWO HOUSES ON OUR BLOCK with brown grass. I'm sure the neighbors think our yards are eyesores. I think they are irresponsible.
City Council should have made the rate increase happen a year ago! And any public place (included schools, parks and churches) and businesses that retain grass as landscaping should only be able to water their grass if the water is reclaimed. And HEY Goleta - when are you guys going to step up and raise rates on your citizens to match SB???
