The problem is that we have universally and blindly voted in the same type of politicians for the past 40 years. What else should we expect? We have one choice here, and that is to vote (D). Dems are in complete disarray from the top down. If you do not think so, please let's us know who leads the Dem party. Pelosi? Soros? Al Franken? It is nothing short of bizarre.

2017-03-24 12:42 PM

The Democratic Party has become the party of race baiting and fear! If one listens to local and national Democratic office holders, one would believe that ICE is in the process of rounding up every illegal alien living in this country. This is just not true! ICE is picking up and deporting illegal alien criminals and leaving the rest of the law abiding illegal aliens alone! There is no wholesale roundup of illegal immigrants taking place! In some cases, families are broken up, but that also happens with criminals who are sent to prison, leaving their families to fend for themselves.

YMCA to Replace 28 Trees

2017-03-24 12:41 PM

Yes, the new trees will take awhile to get big and shady, but both species are perfect for that beautiful space inhabited by the YMCA. And you can always do fun arts & crafts projects with sycamore leaves :-) That creek by the parking lot is San Roque creek flowing into Arroyo Burro creek, which carries on to the ocean.

it is normal...yes really, have worked in Goleta, next to airport for years. Now, what kind of training, where to/from...not sure, . They usually stop for lunch/refueling. I saw 2 take off from airport about 10 minutes ago. Those two were some sort of AH-1 Cobras (not sure variant). Now have we seen them lately? No, probably as Spring has sprung...yadda, yadda..Wed. and Thurs. you will probably see either an E2-C Hawkeye (AWACS) from the "Sun Kings" based out of Mugu. Or the non-AWACS Greyhound. Occasionally, a C-130 from either Air National Guard or Marines, do touch-and-gos...All good

Schneider and White are pretenders. They both ran on a platform of caring about Santa Barbara and wanting to keep our town's charm and laid-back loveliness. Then they both proceeded to vote in every housing development, allow cruise ships, allow those hideous behemoth Land Shark vehicles. The gentrification of the Funk Zone is thanks to them.

We need to stop this rampant growth. Let's vote S & W out next election and get some council people who will fight to keep Santa Barbara from becoming even more jam-packed with people.

Saw the police race up Valerio on the west side. Not sure they got the guy because I saw a guy at that matches that description run down the hill in the middle of the street cutting out of someones yard at about 1210. Was weird to see this time of day as runners are usually on the sidewalk with all the traffic that we have on upper west v. Either way the response was swift from what I could tell.

My only complaint is the Ralph's property on Chapala tends to be strewn with trash. but I think they have made an effort lately to keep it in check.

We understand from speaking with witnesses that the truck runs on compressed natural gas and one of the tanks of gas exploded for some reason, possibly catching the Bottle Shop on fire. Fortunately, there appear to have been no injuries.

I hate it when people practice with their throwing knives in public. Especially at trees. Can't they find a target that isn't living? There's one tree at the wilcox that has a huge scar (bigger than me) on the side that took over a year to heal and not seep sap. Stabbing a live tree repeatedly is a great way to introduce fungus and disease. They may be inanimate to you but they are living things, and in a public place they do not belong to you. Plus next to the playground? Dude needed to stop.

And hells bells, an AR-15 went missing? ...

Sprouts and Whole Foods are extremely bad employers who treat their workers with disdain. Vons at least still has employees that can earn a wage that sustains a mid level life. People who ignore the needs of the folks who serve them in order to allegedly save a few bucks a week are simply selfish. And of course Sprouts is not "organic" if that was meant to convey that they only sell "organic" stuff. In that regard they are little different than Vons.

On Wednesday, I was on the UCSB side of Goleta Beach parking lot. I saw 3 what I guessed were pilot whales, not Dolphins, swimming up the coast not 50 yards offshore. It appeared to me they swam between the pier pilings as it seems odd they would swim around the end of the pier and suddenly swim towards shore and then turn parallel to it. Always uplifting to see marine life from shore these days.

Sprouts is fine - for a few things, but I hate having to go to two or more markets (Trader Joe's is one I won't give up!) for my favorite laundry detergent and other familiar brands. Albertson's on Calle Real has helpful staff but is way too cramped for comfort or convenience and the one by Costco has a great selection except now you can't do self-checkout anymore. Bring back Von's and self checkout and I'm happy! (Oh, and can we squeeze a Target in somewhere - pretty please?)
