Where are the "they were here first" comments like we get about co-existing with coyotes? I object to having land taken off tax rolls. Other than that, exploiting idiots who did poorly in math is a time-honored tradition in America.

This is a terrible idea for an agricultural area. My brother lives in Las Vegas, which at one time was small and had some problems with crime, but nothing like it is now. Large casinos bring in crime, addiction, drunk driving and increase the portion of the taxes of the local population spent for policing and all of the infrastructure associated with rampant development. Local politicians tend to get influenced by the money and corruption becomes common. Just look at Morongo Valley or any of the casinos that have grown and expanded. Ugly, wasteful and degrading of the environment. What's next? The Stratosphere?

Santa Barbara Sued for Voting Right...

2014-07-30 03:21 PM

If you can't win by any other means, rig the system in your favor! Latinos have ZERO excuses for not fielding candidates that can win. The population here IS almost half Latino, so where are the candidates? There aren't any. The last thing I would want is a Councilperson who is only there because of their race. Race is irrelevant in representing the public because the public aren't all one race in ANY district.

The Councilperson in a District will still have to represent all the people there, not just Latinos. This lawsuit is race-based and a crybaby tactic. Like I said if you can't win in this town of almost 50% Latino, as a Latino candidate, then you suck and stay out of politics. If these racists lose will they put up the money to reimburse the taxpayers? No. it's take, take, take and avoid the HARD WORK to field a decent candidate. Whimps and whiners generally don't win elections.

I went to a winery a few weeks ago with some friends who are the same as age I am, and the bartender asked for ID from all my friends but not me. I felt bad since I think I actually look younger than most of my friends. After it quieted down in there the bartender came over and said "Hey don't you remember me from highschool? We played football together." Didn't feel so bad after that.

PetSafe Licensing Clinic in Goleta

2014-07-30 02:43 PM

While I agree in principle with licensing dogs, I do not approve of the way licensing is done in the city of SB. You have to deal with a third-party bureaucracy in Irving, Texas, which can totally screw up even the most basic things. Dealing with the county, however, is a walk in the park. Why the city can't license dogs any more is a mystery, but I guess the city likes outsourcing jobs out-of-state instead of providing employment to locals.

Not that I would ever admit to doing this, you understand, but I understand that SOME city residents actually use addresses of friends or relatives who live within the county but out of the SB city limits to license their dogs Perhaps this isn't 100% legal, but at least the dogs are getting licensed.

Come on, city of SB. Bring back local dog licensing.

734P: If we had District Elections, the people running for Council would be very different than the candidates we get under our At-Large system. There would be multiple people from your District running, giving you the choice of who would represent your neighborhood best.

If District Elections means people on the Council are fighting for their neighborhoods instead of only funding projects for downtown and Milpas Street, that would be FANTASTIC!!!! I want Councilmembers fighting to fund projects for every neighborhood rather than a Council filled with people who just want to go to the biggest ribbon-cutting ceremony available.

I have worked in the oil industry for 30 years. First, there is not that much oil production in this immediate area and there hasn't been for a long time. Second, if you have installed oil extraction equipment, you must maintain it or things can get very bad very quickly (or slowly which is usually worse). This country is dependant on oil - plain and simple. That is not going to change in my lifetime. Maligning the oil industry is not going to change that either. If it makes you feel better - this area is a very, very minor player in the oil extraction world - y'all just have more time on your hands than any other place I have ever seen.

Santa Barbara Sued for Voting Right...

2014-07-30 01:40 PM

718: That's understandable but I want the system to remain At Large so that I have a choice more than once every four years for a councilperson. Judging by the ones from my general neighborhood who ran last time, I wouldn't - and didn't vote for any of them. Murillo on the westside made more sense.

As for funding local neighborhoods, I keep in mind that the monies are generated city-wide and should be spent city-wide, as I think they are. District elections will mean less choice and a greater likelihood of councilmembers fighting with each other for spoils, as happened when the City did have district elections.

However, it won't matter what we want if this lawsuit prevails. Some will be happy; some won't; and city opinions won't matter at all.

The way our Council is now, they are able to just ignore whatever problems don't get them any political mileage, ignoring certain neighborhoods, and only funding projects that get lots of publicity and positive PR.

District Elections are better for everyone! (except for the do-nothing Councilmembers who are able to endlessly pass the buck under our current system).

681P: Silverfish are actually silver-colored and much, much smaller. These are House centipedes.

I think I've seen four postings now, on Edhat, in the past 6 months (or less) showing a pic of a House centipede and asking what it is.

They are super cool BENEFICIAL bugs. They EAT silverfish. (They also eat many other bugs, as D8 has written above.)

Fuel Depot gasoline is definitely not top-tier because they mix gasoline from different sources. The combination (it varies all the time) hasn't passed top-tier testing requirements (e.g. gumming tests) even if it contains a certain percentage of top-tier gasoline.

Regarding the fruit recall, kudos to the grocery stores for getting the word out. Listeria can be dangerous for small children, the elderly, and those with compromised immune systems.

I've never seen a Silverfish that looks like that, but I just did a Google search images, and that variety comes up. But, on further search, it definitely is a "House Centipede", know as a Scutigeridae. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~`

What Silverfish & Centipedes Eat Silverfish like any type of carbohydrates and sugars. That means they'll consume paper -- a silverfish favorite -- natural fibers, wallpaper, crumbs and dried food. House centipedes are bad news for silverfish, as they're known to feed upon these smaller insects. Centipedes inject small amounts of venom into their insect victims and they occasionally bite people. Such bites usually just cause a local reaction of swelling and slight pain. If you see centipedes in your house, especially in large numbers, that means you've got other insects infesting your property. In addition to silverfish, they nosh on spiders, termites, cockroaches, bedbugs and the larvae of carpet beetles.

I use Ralphs fuel points because it lowers the cost of purchasing "Top Tier" gasoline. Locally available gasoline brands that are Top Tier include 76, Chevron, Mobil, Shell, and Texaco.

Brands like Fuel Depot are not Top Tier. Google "Top Tier gas" to get more info and decide for yourself whether it's worth it to you.

Top Tier is an industry standard set by major automakers (GM, BMW, Honda, Toyota, etc.). Top Tier gasoline has more than the minimum level of EPA-required detergents.

In this town, the brand of Top Tier gas that's often the cheapest is 76. But when you use the Ralphs fuel points, the price of Shell gas comes close. Be a smart consumer and use the Gasbuddy website to search for the best prices.

Santa Barbara Voted Best Small City

2014-07-30 10:06 AM

There was a period during the 1950's and 1960's that Santa Barbara sought to attract planning, research and development related companies, often referred to as "smokeless industries". This was a good balance because it created a large middle and upper middle class with relatively high paying jobs. We have always had some tourism due to climate and scenic beauty but it was not something that we had to spend so much money and hoopla on to attract. The problem with tourist dollars, that seem like the golden goose to many in government and in businesses that get wealth from tourism, is that the jobs created are generally low wage and minimum wage jobs for worekers that cannot afford to live here! This creates both the housing shortage and the tremendous transportation, traffic and parking problems that we now suffer daily!

When you have to raise $100k to win a seat around here, you have to be darned palatable to the majority of voters, not just the Latino voting block, which actually doesn't even exist. This guy's thinking is that if he could compete in a smaller pool, he could win. That's what this suit is all about for him. For Cappello, suing cities for the voting rights act violations is a new growth industry he's discovered.

To me, the bigger issue (nationwide) is low voter turnout. If more registered voters actually voted there would be better representation. I talk to too many people who see voting as pointless. Our system is imperfect, but we only stand a chance of being a real democracy if we actually use it.

Why do we allow this roping off areas! Where does it end? People had claimed the entire width of chase palm park for the 4th of July. What's to stop someone claiming half the lawn at the mission?
Why can't people do the space holding? Just dumping off all your camping equipment at 6:30am is unsocial.

It happens in a lot of places not just SB but it's also stopped in a lot of places by a simple "human required to reserve space" rule.

If they make good music, and people enjoy listening to the music, what does age have to do with it. If they are playing well in an old age home, go for it.

Life has many rules to keep us healthy and safe - banning music players based on age is not one of them. Could not think of a more hideous law.

I thought we were all supposed to be equal, but apparently Latinos are different than Asians, blacks, South-sea islanders, whites, Native-Americans and "other". Perhaps we need a council person for every possible race, sex, sexual orientation and religion to make sure we are fairly represented. I know - that as a German, English, Irish, recovering Catholic, single male, with not enough money to retire though I'm over 60, homeowner, who is sick of the taxes and waste in government, who walks and bikes, started recycling when I was 16 (years before it was mandatory) and has cut back 30% on water - that no one on the council represents me. Where is Mr. Capello when I need him?!!!

Tuberose and plumeria aren't the same plant. Tuberose grows from a bulb, is a perennial small plant, many small waxy flowers along a tall stem. The fragrance is similar, but not identical. They're often available in season at the farmers' markets, and sometimes there are bulbs for sale at the markets, too.

This will cost the county Millions if this thing passes. The county is self insured for only $500,000. The rest of the litigation costs will come out of your services - that's a fact. Rather that believing me or what is written above, go to the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisor's website and click on meetings/agenda.
