Yes, we are so thankful to all the crews in every capacity fighting our local fires. I heard that many of our local Forest Service members worked 16 hour shifts daily throughout the Sherpa fire. I'd like to express our deepest gratitude that you worked so hard and successfully to preserve our quality of life.

Sherpa Fire is 93% Contained

2016-06-24 08:14 PM

We flew over the burn area and lower offshore this afternoon around 5pm and the wind was ripping. We couldn't see the crews, but assumed they were out there enduring the blown dust and ash to watch for flare ups. We thought there might've been a few small smoke plumes near the East perimeter, and I texted a couple of pix to Ed. I'm about to put some on our blog and send two to Ed again via email. I wanted to alert anyone living near that area to watch for smoke, though the wind seems to be abating.

313 read the article. it clearly states: The website obtained these never-before seen videos and reports from the Sheriff's Office.
They were not leaked by the prosecutor or the defense as you suggested could have happened. The article clearly states that the documents were leaked from the Sheriff's office. I am horrified by the things in these documents. But no matter how horrific they are, and not matter what new information they bring to light, these documents should never have seen the light of day. Whatever happened, MJ was tried and found not guilty. What is our justice system worth if it can be so easily broken? Whoever leaked these documents needs to be found and prosecuted.

@sacjon - funny you should bring the "hat" issue up. I talked with the 2 Officers about those hats, after a different Officer was teasing them about it!!! They told me they are official attire, but most of the other Officers don't like to wear them.

The wide brim protects them against the sun. Sounded like there have been some cases of sunburn necks and ears, and some skin cancer.

They looked really nice and comfortable.

After taking the picture, I showed it to him, for his final approval, which he gave! (even though we were out in public and I really / legally did not need his permission, unless he makes money off his own image and has it protected, which was NOT the case).

His friend helped him get up and get into a family members car. The friend rode the motorcycle away.

The Officer said that this accident caused major traffic back-up for the freeway exits, and on Eastbound Carrillo, let alone the lookie-loos slowing to check it out. They had to close the slow lane, Eastbound Carrillo, to deal with this accident. It's hard to see, but there was a Fire Engine on Carrillo also.

The injured motorcyclist is seen sitting up in a couple pictures, but by the time I got there, he was laying down and in a lot of pain. His leg was wrapped by the EMT's, along with treatment of a couple other minor injuries.

The vehicle involved was not cited and was released to leave the scene. I think they said there was no damage to the vehicle. The motorcyclist friend was able to ride the motorcycle away.

For years, the way the news spun it, it seemed as though MJ was innocent rather than guilty. I never knew what to think, but there was always something creepy about him. After hearing about this a day or so ago, I have no doubt in my mind that he was a child predator. On top of that, it disgusts me that he possessed images of animal abuse. Whenever a song of his plays anywhere, I'll feel really uncomfortable and offended. It's sad that many people still consider him an idol.

I doubt you could sneak into a hotel pool in SB during the summer. Most of them have personnel that would know you were trespassing, especially because you usually need a room key to get towels and it is a giveaway if you bring your own. If you don't know anyone that has a pool, then maybe you could put an ad on craigslist. I'm sure someone with a pool would let you use it for $5,000 a day.

To have been abused by the person trusted to care for her is unthinkable. This on top of the unknown circumstances leading up to her placement in foster care.

I hope that she is able to find a stable and loving home to remain in and not have to move anymore between foster families, until she is on her own as a well adjusted adult.

Then he just sat there for 10-15 seconds holding up traffic, making the entire 1-lane street into his personal turning lane as he waited for a chance to cut into the opposite lane. Seemed like a pretty reckless and self centered move but then again i had to remind myself i was in Montecito!

I truly doubt that anyone with a pool is going to rent it to you for a variety of reasons. The most important reason is liability. The pool owner would be liable if you or more importantly, because you can not sign away a minor's rights, one of your children is hurt either in the pool or on the property or drowns in the pool. You could not possibly pay enough rent to make it worth the private pool owner's potential liability when renting it to you.

162--the players on the UCSB team were as close to professionals as any other NCAA team. These kids move around from high school to community college to university if they can't get a pro contract yet. In the off season they play semi-pro ball in the Cape Cod or California league or elsewhere. That said, it was good to see West Coast teams get some respect after the NCAA treated them so shabbily in the play offs. Meanwhile the Florida schools which were such darlings of the media are gone and Texas is faltering as well. Fun games to watch.

They are to be complimented and supported. The community and the school needs to get behind them and the needed improvements at the UCSB baseball stadium including needed rest rooms, lights and additional seating. They are now a World Series caliber program under coach Checketts and deserve to have a first class playing facility.

Goleta Man Arrested for Alleged Ani...

Poor little dog! And many thanks to Julia Di Sieno who devotes her life to caring for the voiceless. And thanks to our DA's office for taking seriously animal cruelty.

An interesting article would be a comparison of the adoption policies of the various dog/cat agencies in Santa Barbara County. How much of a background check is done, including the ability of the adopter to provide for food and care. How much should be done? (I adopted a wonderful little dog from the Baldwin Park shelter about 5 years ago and there was no background check at all.)

Smokin' Hot

178 - wind driven fires burn everything in their path. A firefighter made a comment on another board that fires like that, seem to create their own weather, and what was once high-moisture fuel is almost immediately desiccated to the point where it is indistinguishable from low-moisture fuel. (It could take a few hours to find that quote, but I will try.)

The response of the after-fire environment, usually a deep layer of very sandy soil with no fibrous matter populated with burned brush limbs, has a great deal to do with how many fires that area has seen. Too many fires, and the area turns into a chaparral-denuded weed lot. If there is a large interval between fires, then chaparral will eventually recover, after fire-following plants first cover the area. That is well covered in that section on fire on that site. (In fact, it pays to read all of the material on that site on fire, and then delve into some of the links.)

[excerpt]"The age and density of chaparral has little to do with the occurrence of large wildfires

The map below shows how the 2007 fires in San Diego County overlapped the 2003 fire scars (bright purple), burning nearly 70,000 acres of four-year-old, recovering vegetation. According to conventional wisdom this was not supposed to happen. It did. The ecological health of these re-burned landscapes has now been seriously compromised."

Finally, the Chaparral Institute author trained as a fireman and worked some fires with firemen. He has also worked with Jon Keeley who has researched fires for many years.

Goleta Man Arrested for Alleged Ani...

I agree 248. I think that Santa Barbara has come a long way in response to handling animal abuse. I commend how the Sherriff's dept, the SB police and the DA's office all are taking the approach that these perpetrators are serious offenders who make our community less safe. The formation of Davey's Voice and Davey's legacy in our County have made it easier for people who witness animal abuse to have network of people to support them in their efforts to bring justice. What I don't understand is why Davey's legacy finds it necessary to condone the work of the Davey's voice people. I know several of the Davey's voice group who have been asked, by witnesses and family members of pets who were killed, to be in court for them as they recount the horror of what they are going through. I think that is very honorable. I also personally know one of their board members, Deborah Hall - a wonderful human being , in deep in the trenches right now in China assisting Marc Ching of The Animal Hope and Wellness Org., in saving dogs from being tortured alive from the illegal meat trade that supports the Yulin Dog Festival. Davey's voice will be paying for the vetting and fostering of those tortured animals who come to SB county. The $ to help them will come from fundraising and the Davey Beanie (made in China) will be part of the fundraising efforts. Out of the darkness of Chen, Davey's convicted torturer, comes some light that just might one day put an end to the Yulin festival. So, let's not bash others who are also in the trenches. Let's stop pointing fingers . If you are helping to make animal cruelty laws stronger, why not stop bullying others who are making a difference as well. And I thank you for being there for Floyd

I just went through the pictures and see a majority of the things you list above in the pictures submitted. Take another look, a good long look, then beat that dead horse again.
