Most Doctors are not union, some Rn"s are. Soon, Cottage will have a hard time filling openings. Why more to SB with a couple of hundred thousand of dollars of education debt, where the average house nears 1 million? Santa Barbara will always have waiters, cook and sale people, as long as UCSB and SBCC are open.
Md's and RN's? Probably not.

Union tool. How friendly. It was a serious question. I hope for your sake the big one or the next wildfire doesn't strike at midnight or when the 101 jammed with traffic from all the little people tyring to get to their pesky, union job.

If Santa Barbara is for the wealthy, and only those who can afford to live there, where are the people who provide essential services going to live? You know, doctors, nurses, police and fire, dentist and trash collectors. Do you want to have to drive to LA for all that?

The best and perhaps cheapest solution is indirect potable reuse. Take sewage, clean with reverse osmosis , and then pump up to Jameson, where it will be aged and blended with the water there, and then pumped back down for use. It is easier to remove the "stuff" from sewage than the salt from the ocean.

No matter how you cut it, there are 12 months in the year. Schools maybe in session only 9 months, but teachers have to pay rent, utilities, mortgages and car payments 12 months a year. Some even go to school in the summer to further their education and become better teachers.

Where is your evidence that Hamas kidnapped and murdered the youths? There are multiple accounts that a gang in Hebron murdered them the first day. Even so, if Hamas in Hebron committed this crime, why bomb Gaza?
Finally, America is a continent, the United States is a county. I do not fear Hamas.

While I like trains, have ridden trains and think the LOSSAN corridor should be massively upgraded, trains alone are not the solution. Much of the traffic on 101 are cars and trucks and RV's trying to get through Santa Barbara heading to points north or south. No amount of rail improvements will change that.

The Bundy family may not have been there 130 years.
He either owes taxes or rent on that property. He seems to think he should pay neither.

If it is his land, where are the tax bills and payments? Nevada law on adverse possession requires open and notorious occupation and payment of 5 years of taxes. Bundy is just a squatter refusing to pay the required fees to graze.
