I hope that the 'Publicans nominate Donnelly, in order to seal their own tombs once and for all.

Maybe it was something that someone scavenged from VAFB or nearby, which used to be grounds for tank and artillery training (Camp Cooke). I've found worse during my years in the field. And, loonpt, I presume that you were being facetious. A drill for "evacuations and internment"--in Solvang? Yeah, very clever, just like the Zaca, Gap, Tea and Jesusita fires, which all used reverse-911 calls. Yeesh. Get a grip on reality.

At the Bacara, hosted by the Goleta C of C? -groan- And Aceves wants bed tax monies diverted to chambers of commerce and film commissions? That's the ultimate in cognitave dissonance.
You know, in San Roque this morning, the foggy air smelled of beach tar. Now, I understand better.

A candidate with significant contributions from two SEIU locals and their statewide organization, representing tens of thousands of public and private service workers, plus the county firefighters; versus a candidate with significant contributions from oil & gas companies and construction interests, including the Chumash, and the Deputy Sheriffs' Assn. It's definitely a classic battle drawn along the traditional Santa Barbara County lines, and one that'll be repeated over and over until big money from every source is taken out of political campaigns.
In the meantime, I support Ms. Wolf. As I've said before, she's voted contrary to my preferences many times on many issues, but is thoughtful and honest. I can say the same thing about three of her Second District predecessors: Bob Kallman, Tom Rogers and Susan Rose. As did they, she serves the Second District and the entire county very well and capably.

Agree, easternpacific. I wish they'd promote from within the ranks, and that goes for the county too.
Also, as a county pensioner, I have to add that we public-sector pensioners of modest means support a dollar cap on lifetime pensions. We also support something better than 401(k)s for everyone, everywhere. There's no bright future in having tens of millions of impoverished old folks on welfare.

Last week I was at a conference in Costa Mesa, and a UCSB alumna from our time ('70s) asked me, "WTF is going on with IV?" At the time, I'd only seen a few minutes of sensationalist coverage on local TV "news." Since then, I've read a lot, and this is the best article or column that I've read so far.
Halloween has turned IV into a concentration camp, with fences and troops to keep outsiders out rather than to keep IV & UCSB residents in (though, you'd better not breach the perimeter and try to get back in, unless you have multiple IDs proving you live there). Regrettably, maybe the same thing has to happen for the first weekend of Spring quarter. I ask the residents of IV, esp. the ever-and-always precious denizens of DP: is it worth it?
