Vista del Monte takes the safety and security of our residents very seriously. In this instance, our security team acted prudently. They determined that this individual did not belong on our community and he was escorted off the campus. Once off the campus we contacted the authorities. We are very pleased that our actions were efficient and effective in preserving the safety of our residents. Douglas Tucker, Executive Director Vista del Monte

"How did the suspect get passed security and enter Vista Del Monte, not good." That was the question from another reader. The first call I heard was that the suspect was in the weight room going through purses so obvious he got through your security team. That is all we were asking because the fact is he got in and that should not have happened in the first place...

Oh wait I cannot preform my job so I have to down vote this guy because the truth hurts so it's his fault for pointing it out.

Yes, they allow senior outsiders to join. It is an excellent gym with new senior friendly equipment. Don't have to compete with those youngsters for a machine. The pool is large and heated. Your membership will also allow you to take various exercise classes. The staff is helpful as well as the friendly volunteers.

Some retirement communities do offer community memberships, or club membetships, others do not. It’s a decision of residents with management. Some offer community programs such as use of warm pools to eliminate need to travel to Ventura to access Easter Seal pool for therapy. Others may choose to open community campus for recreational use. Still others deliver meals to private nearby homes when ‘a neighbor’ is recovering. Each SB community is private. Call to inquire.

I only have one question then...."How did the suspect get past security to enter Vista Del Monte?" PS Your empty headed threat don't scare me one bit. "If you presented deadly force to me or anyone in my charge I would shoot you dead." I guess that is suppose to scare me I don't care about you we asked a question you never answered it but you left a threat on the table to intimidate me and it did not work. I guess the question will never be answered just more threats..The proofs in the pudding the suspect got past security...

Actually word games aside, if you presented deadly force to me or anyone in my charge I would shoot you dead.

Oh My God Another Excuse from the defenders of the worthless security team...Guess You have never done rounds at a large complex facility where technical data and environmental conditions are recorded hourly...Logging made rounds site secure doesn't count. Big words and more games more excuses if you cannot do the job you were hired to do for the pay you accepted because standing guard is much too hard please find another job before a real threat enters that place and hurts or kills someone. I'm betting by all your excuses that you are the type of person that would run away while people are getting hurt then later on make excuses on why you had to save your skin instead of theirs. This one instance proves to me you are incapable of doing your job...YACHT ROCKED had a question it was never answered.. I have worked in many places for alot less money and did my job. I'll be waiting for more excuses.....

Your right a guard can't be everywhere at once but they can be where they were supposed to be and they were not there.

SBWOMAN. Do try to keep up. We are talking Security guards (3rd) party employees. My comment( re labor ) is firsthand fact. I briefly worked there for extra holidays money as security and did plunge a couple toilets and move furniture . You need to look in the mirror .

Fact Check: The Vista Del Monte Staff are exceptional! Unlike elsewhere there are employees from 1990, committed for so or more years both serving, and caring for residents. Little “depends on pay”. People with integrity and competency take great personal pride in their work and performance. Look in the mirror. Do you like who you see?

They also use the guards there as laborers , plunge toilets, move furniture , etc. Those that refuse (many) are fired thus a high turnover .

Security becomes lax in some places when not much goes on it depends on pay to when some people don't get a decent wage they don't take their job as seriously as they should.

That women that has a financially unfortunate sign is actually a man who dresses like a female. He wears skin tight leggings and you can tell it's a man if you get my drift

Well, okay then. The impeccably groomed older female who sweetly asked me for money over near Trader Joe's is not the same panhandler. The woman I spoke with was definitely XX chromosome, with no man parts.

Lots of homeless along Modoc and the tracks. Huge homeless camp at Las Positas in the Caltrans right of way. since when does Caltrans allow pedestrians to walk up and down on/off ramps? Seems these homeless are given 'permission' to be out on Las Positas off ramp (southbound) every day. Heard that a homeless guy was found on campus at Adams School earlier this week. Had spent the night and was located in an inner courtyard. Where did he go to the bathroom? Who had to clean up after him? Maybe we need police presence to protect our children on their campuses. What about the guy who sits on the wall by Quality Inn and leaves all his trash stuck in the hedges? Why does the motel have to put up with this? I know they have called the police. And how about the guy who begs out in the 'triangle' at Dela Vina and State.....barefoot and in his pajamas? He is out there for hours every morning? And where is he going to the bathroom? When does the city put a stop to this madness.

It's beyond bad. These people are career vagrants who have no intentions of getting of the streets. People enable them by giving them money and food. They do not want to be functional members of society. Only thing they care about are drugs and having an easy life. If you spend enough time around them you will realize this. Obviously there are some homeless who lost their job or there houses, but those type of people are actually trying to get off the streets and make en effort too. All these vagrants who panhandle, litter, and go the bathroom in public are homeless because they use drugs or make no effort to better themselves. They just want everything handed to them for free. If you put these people in public housing they wouldn't suddenly want to work or go find a job. They would live the very same lifestyle they had on the streets, but now they have a roof over there head. It's reality and a lot of people refuse to believe that.

I wonder if he's one of those people who live on the tracks near the Las Postas off ramp. I see a few older Hispanic makes panhandling there from time to time.

Bet it was the same woman who was standing near Trader Joe's last week, telling me she was asking for money for a hotel room for the night. She looks like your everyday granny, impeccable grooming. New to Santa Barbara and has joined the ranks of panhandlers; wonderful.
