Free Speech and Measure P

2014-10-30 11:51 AM

To COMMENT 565558 - 2014-10-30 11:01 AM
There will always be hypocrisy in how everyone lives their lives so there’s no point in going there as it's irrelevant to the issues in this Measure......
The Measure does NOT ban oil in this county, just the FUTURE use of high intensity methods that involves pumping harmful substances underground that has accidentally contaminated ground water sources in other places. Keep in mind that there’s been more earthquakes in flat lands of Oklahoma than California and Alaska during the past couple years; all due to the methods being banned. Do you think the oil co’s would take any responsibility if they triggered the next big one due to fracking? No..

This Measure is so accommodating that it even exempts the current uses of these dangerous processes from the ban (See page 26 - Section 5 of the Measure). It also does not even address offshore operations where more of these processes are being used.

The current 10 day forecast for Santa Barbara on the weather channel's website shows a 20% chance of rain for friday and saturday - ie 80% chance of no rain. However, there is also a local weather advisory on the same site which is much more rain oriented. Clearly there are many uncertainties with this system - and only 3 days ago, there was no mention of any rain.

Most amazing burger ever, and worth the drive to Los Olivos...Sides Hardware and Shoes (it's a restaurant!) owned by the brothers who own Mattie's Tavern. Sides just won an award for the best bacon. This is a pricey burger, but worth every penny. I've gone back 4x, and they never disappoint. Incredible meat, bacon steak on top, great sauce and homemade bun. Too large to eat by myself, which makes the $16 or $18 fee more reasonable. My husband (big guy) and I actually share one, and we are full and happy for the rest of the day.

People used to play bocce ball (sp?) at noon most weekdays on the lawn at De la Guerra Plaza. I'm sure there would be plenty of room in the Plaza to play petanque, plus it's so centrally located.

Domestic Violence Murder Suspect Ar...

2014-10-30 09:43 AM

This is why we need as many resources out there as possible to help, assist, and teach victims and encourage them to leave abusive situations. It sounds like this wasn't the first time there was a domestic dispute/violence at this location. It's so hard to leave relationships that are violent when you love someone who hurts you, sometimes especially if you have a child with them. Often we want to believe people are capable of changing for the better.

@391 Best way to prevent these things from happening is teaching our children (and leading by example) that hurting anyone, however big or small, is wrong. Kids learn by watching, listening, and experiencing situations, as well as by active teaching. By letting little boys and girls understand that violence isn't the answer and never okay, they'll grow up to not perpetuate the cycle.

My heart goes out to the victim, and her child, and her family. I hope that justice is served.

505 The problem is that those people out of work in the 1930's had moral integrity and wanted to work. WPA provided that work for those gladly participating. These "young travelers" have no such work ethic and are listless drifters and leeches. The have decided to call themselves "travelers" because the previous sympathy ploy of using "homeless" as a label has worn thin. It is like the whiny so-called progressive left who perceive the need for "political correctness" as more important than dealing with the truth and the realities of life.

One solution might be to bring back the WPA. Our national parks and forests need lots of help. Our infrastructure is crumbling. Instead of more and more people in prison, and urban travelers who didn't get raised right or who screwed up or both, offer them the opportunity to be housed and fed (& earn a small salary that is saved for when they leave) in exchange for hard physical work. It strikes me as crazy that we don't use low risk prison labor and abundant young jobless labor and give them job and life skills, room & board in exchange. There's a lot of Caltrans, Granite construction, and related 'public' works that could either keep costs the same or reduce costs if they exchanged some supervision for lower cost/ publicly supplemented labor. The total costs might even go down.

No one is having a yelling match on this…certainly not from the Measure’s supporters-this ban is only for future use of high intensity on-shore based oil extractions in Santa Barbara County. Current such practices can even continue as explicitly exempt by this Measure. The current low price of oil will make more of an impact slowing future extraction projects that this Measure ever will.

High intensity processes are those that pump foreign substances or high pressure steam into the ground. Accidents with these types of processes have made some ground water basins unusable in other places. Unlike surface oil spills that can be cleaned, underground contamination of groundwater is permanent.

Here's an idea for SBCC. Get the money from the rude, obnoxious foreign SBCC students that moved in next door to us. I realize that they have less respect for women in their country. That does not mean they can be rude and obnoxious in our country while going to our schools.

Better yet, just get rid of them. We're sick and tired of them drag racing down our street, walking side-by-side down the sidewalks forcing women to squeeze by, throwing cigarette butts on our lawn, and now that they bought pit bulls - they have the audacity to laugh at us when we pick our child up when their dogs lunge at them.

Fed up.

NO ON S and NO MORE FOREIGN STUDENTS AT SBCC.

Yep big bad oil raping the countryside again and right here in Santa Barbara. Sure looks like the committee to get the Yes on P vote is hard at work on Edhat. If I remember correctly the Edhat poll on the measure a few weeks ago was a solid No on P. Well gotta go and fire up the Prius.

Just in case the unpaid person is an illegal, don't hesitate to use the Small Claims court. It will not be an issue. Many illegals are routinely unpaid by employers because they think they can get away with it, but Small Claims is for everyone and I have helped 2 people this way.

We all need oil, right? How about setting practical boundaries instead of imposing bans? In other words, let's work together to QUANTIFY what we're comfortable with, instead of having a yelling match over extreme positions.

Cox Milpas Service Down

2014-10-30 07:50 AM

OP you were not the only one experiencing an interruption of service. I had same issues in Carp the day before and pals of mine who, by the way, are SF Giants fans off Foothill spent hours trying to get their service up and running. The Cox people never told them they had issues everywhere. So they stayed on the phone with the rep missing a lot of their game on hold. I also encourage you to issue your complaints because I have several times and received at least a $25 credit and sometimes a lot more!

Union Ale and The Burger Bus are by far the best downtown. I'm kinda shocked at other responses thus far.

That said, Sly's in Carp kills both of the above.

I access it from over by the big Moreton Bay Fig tree entrance to the train station parking lot--Montecito St, I think it is. Tricky access, so check your map.

One only has to see & listen to the No on P advertisements currently running where the out right lie about how all oil production will be shut down and we will lose jobs and schools will be shut down to realize after you read the actual text of the measure that it doesn't effect any oil production that is currently in production to know that this is just the usual scare tactics the republicans & big oil companies use to get what they want. the truth, who cares about the truth?

The claim about millions lost to the schools is false. If the oil industry is allowed to add 7,000 new wells, there might be a bit more coming in but it's still a small percentage of the overall school budget. The teacher of the year that the oil companies have spouting their mantra has a financial tie to the oil industry. County schools made him stop identifying himself as SB County..teacher of the year. And now they have to come up with new policy language so no teacher who gets this award will be able to hire themselves out as some industry spokesperson. This guy also appeared at several public hearings speaking for the oil companies when he should have been in his classroom teaching.

141. You really should make time to try some classes at Adult Ed. Over the years Adult Ed classes taught me how to garden organically, create some basic cabinetry items, whip up some mouth-watering vegetarian meals, speak better Spanish, repair bicycles, and even how to bind books.

These are all skills I have put to good use and knowing them has enriched my life immensely.

Current Condition of Lake Cachuma

2014-10-30 12:31 AM

Right now I'm just trying to keep my fruit trees alive long enough to make it until we get some good, soaking rain. Our lawn has been dead for over a year.

A plastic bottle filled with water is better than a brick. Bricks deteriorate and if you get a bit of brick stuck between the flapper valve and the valve seat, you get a running toilet. Yep. And there goes about 1,000 gallons before you even know what's what.
