1. I think the dog dudes are ripping off the school district. $13K?? Do your job cops. The dogs need walking anyway.
2. This could be handled in more casual way instead lining people up with a dog sniffing every nook and cranny, do some random walk throughs unannounced.
3. I think this is a good program generally and showing results. I am not a police state fan, but if you aren't bringing dope to school, what does one have to fear?
4. It may also, though interaction with troublesome parents, result in other clues to nefarious activities.

The truth shall set you free...Other than the Los Lobos concert I saw back there in in the 80's I haven't had much use for the place and it's politics.

There hasn't been any opposition from the Ranch owners because A) they know it wont' happen for years, and B) when it is done they will go throw a big pail of resin on the controls. Same old story.
Pretty lame with Goleta beach down too. With this years impending El Nino, it may turn out to be a wise move not to rebuild yet as both of them may totally be wiped out.
For 20 million they could probably put in a groin and a boat launch ramp... that would be awesome!

This really is a sad story. Many of our people in the 70's and on are so lonely, isolated and abandoned by family. I hope that she gets the help and support she needs.

I would say this is the most concerning fact to me:
"Ortiz claimed that as his complaint worked its way through the court system at the same time he was applying for new jobs, RESON’s attorneys would often serve subpoenas to the companies he was applying to, which may have hurt his employment chances."
The ability of the companies lawyers to ruin this guys life during the case, even it is completely irrelevant, should be addressed. By them doing this they make any labor laws moot because no one in their right mine will pursue discrimination issues because counsel can literally ruin your life while it is at trial with no worry of accountability. I would love to see this guy go after opposing counsel in a civil case if that is at all possible. Probably not. At the very least he should turn their dirty asses into the bar.

Geeze finally the voice of reason from a government agency! yay! Who ever came up with narrowing State street was a moron. Or just outright greedy. I think it is perfect the way it is. La Entrada needs to accommodate the city instead of the other way around.

I guess my point would be they are not contributing enough for the amount of crap they are subjecting the rest of us to. My quality of life continues to decline here in Go Go Goleta with regards to beach access, crappy traffic, more UCSB sprawl, and these developers (which represent progress right?) run back to Laguna Beach with a few more million? I guess that is capitalism. Perhaps when the lake runs dry, people will take heed.
On Traffic in Goleta

I would like to see some of these developers get a bill for improving the roadways and or providing alternate transportation. Often if not always, they reap the huge financial rewards, yet rarely contribute to infrastructure (that actually helps) to accommodate traffic which at it's worse is during rush hours. The problem with rush hour traffic is that often times kids are in the mix in the morning hours. On bikes, skateboards, whatever. Also when developers promise something, like a park or an ice rink, or improving roads they actually follow through.
Instead it turns that we who live here, the taxpayers have to fund these large scale projects to pay for road widening, creek flood control, so some JACKA$$ developer can make another few million on another stripmall or apartment complex. Also note, Condo/Apartment complex's are way more dense than regular trace housing so number of car trips in and out onto the main thoroughfares will be much more. The people who initiate and reap the financial rewards of these developments need to consider the infrastructure, or at least the stewards of those thoroughfares (local government) should call it on them.
Goleta has some soul searching to do before this mess turns into a hole they won't be able to dig themselves out of and the quality of life out there is compromised. Also it would be great to see UCSB (and the Chumash) fall under the slightest bit of regulation as far as building goes instead of living large under the status of autonomous nations.

Is there a reason we need a pride "season"? People may not like it, but I think dewdly has a valid point. If the market will bare a gay bar then there will be one. When I see a hetero couple making out they are told GET A ROOM as it is tacky. So enjoy your pride but don't ram it down the rest of our throats.
