Bottom Line: Bill Brown blew it badly by NOT closing down the streets as authorized by the Supes.

His excuse that it could be "argued both ways" & there wasn't enough time is complete B.S. It's their job to respond to any emergency. No excuses, thank you.

This guy needs a change of work environment & pronto. The upcoming election will give the community a chance to say if they are satisfied with his admin. style or enough is ENOUGH!

Where do you stand?

On The Deltopia Disaster Debriefed

Time for the County, via the S.B.S.O, to triple the fines for an arrest at one of these unsponsored events.

No wiggle room either! Mommy & Daddy can pony up the funs or let their kid sit in the lockup for a "field trip" from UCSB they'll never forget.

If they don't attend school here, aka an outsider, then they too will have a memorable experience either kissing lots of dollars goodbye or checking out our jail. Heck, maybe they'll be the first to sit in Sheriff Bill's new Taj Mahal in Santa Maria.

As Looper mentioned, did Bill Brown of the S.B.S.O. really send the day shift home at 9:30 pm to avoid overtime?

Where was he during all of this? Was he even in town because know he likes to travel frequently?

I also read one chopper had a serious fuel problem and needed to refill. Why aren't there contingencies for emergencies like this? Yes, I know SBA was "officially" closed at the time, after 11:30 pm, BUT what the hey! This seems like a complete lack of emergency planning on the part of - yes - our S.B.S.O. Gads!

I certainly hope the City leaders & more importantly, the Board of Supervisors, call Bill B. on the carpet to answer to all these concerns.

When this happens the next time, and yes, there will be another incident somewhere in this fair city, the S.B.S.O. better be ready & not standing behind their vehicles for hours watching the punks ruin the place.

I noticed that "public hair," too. Hmmmm

I still remember the Long Dong Silver references. That was some riveting TV back in the day. Anita held her ground and Clarence was probably soaking wet from sweat a la the movie "Network."

No wonder he's kept his mouth shut all these years. Do his job, retire with a huge pension & go off into the sunset to fish & think about all the women he could have had. Hah!

Miller-Young is so out of order here and just plain WRONG!

Regardless of her beliefs & that she's pregnant, this did NOT give her the right to violate the young girls' right to free speech & expression.

Sorry, professor, but this isn't over yet and it's most likely going to cost you far more than the value of the poster in the end. Good learning lesson.

Oh, I suggest some anger management sessions before you get to court just to save yourself additional stress & also for your baby's sake.

The Jalama Burger is simply THE BEST anywhere. That's why people drive their cars, motorcycles, & bicycles from all over the southland to sink their teeth into this amazing taste thrill.

It's well worth the picturesque drive to savor this unique creation!

Think he might be able to get a haircut while in the pokey? I'll bet the county has a certified stylist come in daily to the tune of $1000 per day.

If one of Genis' family members or relatives was killed by a multiple DUI convicted person would he change his song & dance?

Would he still run the same ad to get accused drunk drivers off the hook?

I THINK NOT!

I agree with many here in this was great the folks did the cleanup.

However, I think it would go a long way to find out the source of the trash as some have suggested. Did it come from island campers, cruise ships, pleasure boaters, flotsam from Japan...?

The fact the Chumash had to "pay off" some legislator from out of the county of SB is absolutely horrible!

Talk about buying what you want with essentially unlimited cash. This is certainly not going to win the rez any points with the citizens of the Santa Ynez Valley!

Boo

I say it's time for every entity in the county to stop accepting one more dime from this group of indians.
