The statement, "She also designed El Paseo (off De la Guerra Plaza)" is incorrect. The original part of El Paseo "off De la Guerra Plaza" was designed in the early 1920s by husband-and-wife architects James Osborne Craig and Mary McLaughlin Craig, and was completed in 1924 at about the same time that the Lobero Theatre (designed by George Washington Smith and Lutah Maria Riggs) was being constructed. The Anacapa Street section of El Paseo was designed by Carlton Monroe Winslow and completed in 1928. The State Street entrance to El Paseo was reconstructed in 1965 and was designed by Lutah Maria Riggs.

Once again, this SB cop, Jaycee Hunter, is at the center of police misconduct charges. Hunter has a long history of misconduct allegations, including abuse of minors in the PD's Explorer program, lying under oath, assaulting bicyclists with a Taser for running a stop sign, manipulation of witnesses, exceeding authority, etc. He has serious anger and other emotional issues and is unfit to be a police officer. This recent court incident is just the latest episode.

This kind of thing is common and goes on routinely at both the City and County design review boards. The real underlying problem is the waste, inefficiency and unfairness of the overly complex and convulted procedures set up by staff to process an application to build or remodel anything in this town. Staff calls for every unnecessary study, report, plans, etc. they can simply to generate as many permit fees as possible to pay for their own salaries and benefits (including pensions). If anybody has a "conflict of interest" its the staff who process the applications. Why doen't the FPPC investigate that?

The real criminal in this case is Ofcr. Kasi Beutel -- lying, perjury, forgery, exceeding authority, etc. She is such a slimeball there's a good chance that Lance was never over the legal limit, but we will never know because she mishandled his case so badly. A rogue cop like Beutel who ignores all the rules is a far greater danger to society than a .09 DUI driver. She and a few other bad apples need to be thrown out of the SBPD.

Feminism, Inc. has been cut back on the federal gravy train, so all those extreme feminists are scrambling to keep their fat salaries running scam "rape crisis centers" that do little but claim they do a lot. Williams is just pandering to the lefty voters, as usual.

What are the sources of the two major grants that didn't come through? Were they government money or private money?

This landmarking by the City Council is truly historic. For the first time in the city's history (or the county's for that matter) a private home has been made a Historic Landmark WITHOUT THE OWNER's CONSENT AND OVER HIS OBJECTION. The fact that there is little if any historic importance attached to the house makes it an even more egregious violation of private property rights. True (not pretend) historic preservation in Santa Barbara has been seriously damaged by this radical government overreach. The Landmarks Commission is dominated by extremists who want to control every property they can, property owners' rights be damned.

This is either an early April Fool's joke or it should get some kind of award for the dumbest idea ever. Would someone please explain how telling everyone who goes to the beach that they are "Entering a Tsunami Hazard Zone" could possibly "save lives"? Are they trying to tell us that to avoid getting killed by a tidal wave we should not go to the beach? Somebody who makes these signs must be laughing all the way to the bank.

If he was "resisting" at all, it was passive resistance according to all eye witnesses. (i.e. moving slowly, not putting his hands behind his back, etc.) He was punched 10-15 times, kicked, tasered 10 times, and got 4 broken ribs and a broken nose. That level of force is NEVER justified except in self defense. (No one has claimed that DeNunzio was physically attacking Tudor.) If that is "standard procedure" of the SBPD as Sanchez claims, then the procedures need to be changed.
Use of a Taser is potentially deadly and cops are trained to use it only in self-defense. With all witnesses saying that DeNunzio was not physically threatening Tudor, the cop should be charged with Assault with a Deadly Weapon, a felony. If the DA fails to prosecute Tudor it will send a message to all cops that they can use their weapons whenever they they feel like it and then falsely claim the victim was "resisting".
