"It’s one of the only places in California where one doesn’t need a license to fish."
You can fish off any public pier or wharf in CA without a license, it's hardly a rare thing.

Without the wall, the park will cease to be... shouldn't we leave the rocks in place?

el_smufo for the win. I agree, I am spending my money at the local fish market in the Harbor. I have for years and I will continue to support local fisherman and eat local fish. I've been in this Public Market twice, there is nothing enticing for me there and I don't live in it's area, so even if it were convenient I'm not it's target consumer. Fail. And I'm still laughing that only a tiny fraction of the condos have sold. How was this place green-lighted? Who was so high they couldn't see how misguided of an idea it was/is?

OMG, there's an "ad" for someone's GoFundMe on an article against GoFundMe? These people have NO humility. (Sorry AshleySomics.)
I'm with Starshine on this issue. BTW, If you can't afford fertility treatments, you can't afford a kid, and you certainly don't have the morals to bring one up if you think a KickStarter is the best way to ask for funds.
Boop misses the point. These people are hoping for money to fall from the sky. That's not how you go about bettering your financial situation. You work an extra job, cut out frivolous spending, go to family in private and have a plan established for repayment. And you certainly don't ask for money for things you don't truly need.

It's disgusting to associate the blame to the victim. It's disgusting to assume that she was under the influence. It's disgusting to label all rape victims as falsifying their accounts. It's disgusting to demand that she not hold UCSB accountable when she lives in housing on their campus. It's disgusting that you probably have women in your lives that you love but judging from your beliefs stated here, you'd rather throw them under the bus than support them, if they were to be violated. It's disgusting that so many men would rather react that the victim here, as a woman, be to blame for the rape. It's disgusting that the male knee jerk reaction to this story is to believe that the female is lying. It's disgusting that people are raising children who grow up to be adults, who would rather great a victim with harshness and disbelief instead of with compassion and understanding.
Should I go on?

Of course an auto shop sees more damage to cars by rodents than the general population. I've owned at least 20 cars while I've lived in SB/Goleta, and only one has ever had mice come live in it - it was a non-running car I parked for a couple of months in a side yard.
Please don't use poison bait. It's really bad for our ecosystem.
And please don't let your kitties (yours or your neighbors) get into your engine for the heat. That sounds like a quick way to end a cat's life. Oh, and as already stated, cats shouldn't be outside at all anyway. Better for the cat all around.
Otherwise, the rest of the article is spot on. :rolleyes:

SO MUCH VICTIM BLAME AND STEREOTYPES BEING PERPETUATED.
You should all be ashamed of yourselves. Absolutely DISGUSTING the comments I am reading here.
If your wife/daughter/sister/mother/aunt/lady neighbor is ever raped, I hope they don't go to you for support.
Not all women who are raped are under the influence. Not all women who are raped retract their statement (false accusation made). Not all women feel comfortable going to law enforcement. And most importantly, not all women who are raped have someone to support them as they heal and move past the violence. Instead of blaming this poor woman student, and perpetuating stereotypes about drunk college girls making poor choices, you COULD stand up for her (and others) and make a change.
But let me guess - all the commenters here are men. Maybe I should stereotype YOU????

I don't read "pitbull" in this report, anywhere. It says "mixed breed".

" I did not see any benefits that the cruise ships brought to S,B. which justified the inconvenience, congestion and disruption they caused."
Can you report back with more specifics? I thought these cruise ships were relatively small, just a couple thousand people. I haven't heard any official complaints about congestion and disruption.
I'm hesitant to blame the cruise ship as well. This sounds more like having the undercover TSA armed agent on your plane.
