Katy, while I agree with you on the jist of your sentiments here, I disagree that any of this is the school's responsibility. In school a child should learn math, science, and language. AT HOME, they should learn about how to treat others, what is right and what is wrong, how to cultivate friendships, and how to be successful in society. I don't understand why adults procreate if they don't want to teach these things to their kids. No one else should teach a child the basics of human interaction, that should be learned at home.
Schools and teachers are overburdened as it is. Keep the teaching of values at home.

Katy; perhaps not up to us to bail out the 25 year old with three kids on a $10/hr salary. But we've got to feed and care for his kids. Otherwise the cycle continues, doesn't it?

That's right. We finally have heard the ol', "if you can't afford it, don't live here" argument. Which makes perfect sense to a 4 year old who is hungry... I can see all those kids packing up their bags right now and starting to walk to Bakersfield. Good job, Jarvis! You've solved the problem!
Come on. You have to know that's not the solution.

That was some interesting reading (the comments above mine). I'd just like to leave this gem here and move on: I believe marijuana is the root of the problems that cause gun violence. If we remove MJ and guns from society, we'll be fine.
How's that for a proposal?
(This is totally tongue in cheek, btw.)

At noon in Goleta the clouds were almost gone, and it was bright and sunny. Wish the rain had stuck around all day as forecast.

"Morua, who had two prior DUIs before last year’s incident, was sentenced in May to 20 years to life in prison. "
"...as does Morua’s new wife, Teresa Montoya Morua. The two were engaged before Morua’s arrest and have since been married. "
That's an interesting life choice on Teresa's part, to go ahead with the wedding, considering his past and future.

Maybe SBCC should operate dorms. Get those young and immature kids out of the surrounding neighborhoods where established families live (for more than 9 months at a time), give them some rules to live by with RAs and other adult supervision. MTD could have a dedicated route between the dorms and the campus. I'd pay for a bond for that to happen. Could the UCSB campus open some of their dorm space to SBCC'ers?

Can we vote to ask the Indy to change the title of this annual farce to "Most Popular" instead of "Best of"?
+1 Vote FOR this change.

Loon, in your account of a drunk girl initiating sex with a drunk guy, THAT'S NOT RAPE. No one is saying it is. If somehow later she claims it is, and bad things happen to the guy (kicked out of college? Really? Where, which colleges are doing this?) then shame on the guy for not having better representation. Seriously. In the real world this fantasy of yours isn't what's behind the intent of this new law.
Clearly you've never been raped. It is an assault. It is violent. It is not pleasant. It is never initiated by a victim. That's the type of interaction the law is working to prevent. NOT a "he said/she said" after a drunken party.
