Lame... kind of like Goleta Pier that has been closed for MONTHS! I bet it is a money thing.

Hopefully they will downsize the Plover reserve.

Does $70 water really hurt them? Probably not. I wonder what it costs per truck to bring water up? Probably even more. I think a nice big fat WATER SMART METER would be a great idea around here. Especially for some of our well to do friends. These fines mean about as much to some as a speeding ticket. Nothing. If it gets out of line on the smart meter, have big brother turn it off! I wonder if water wars are coming but big picture, more and more building, with finite sources of water since no one thinks desal is viable. Just keep on rolling those dice with mother nature and continue to ignore shrinking capacity in reservoirs. Maybe for every truck load someone uses, they should have to truck a load of silt out! I have to give this guy a few props though for actually taking some action to reduce his water use.

Look at that picture.. the whole place is a dump. UCSB must be so proud of their enviro care about the earth attitude kids. Looks worse than the center median of the 101 going through Montecito if that is possible. Chancellor Yang, TEAR DOWN THIS WALL! and put something reasonable up. With what you charge for tuition, it shouldn't be that much of a burden.

On Shipping Barge Capsizes Off Point Conception

Not a giant conspiracy theorist....., but this is bullloney! Wonder what was on the barge? They don't usually tip over unless: 1. they are way over loaded or 2. there were very heavy seas. There haven't been very large swells lately so something is now at the bottom of the ocean in a pretty special area.

What a great boat name: The Island Fox. Anyway, cute little buggers. Good for them and good job for all those that helped. I wonder if getting rid of the pigs helped out in any way?

A felony trespass on a friends boat that was for sale? Hmm... I guess we will have to see how the facts shake out. Are the Marina's private property? Conversely, he probably should not have ran away from the command of the peace officer. Maybe he will pull the old "I didn't hear or see you" trick again.
Yup officers have every right to "confront" and control the situation. This doesn't mean they have to come in with the attitude guns a blazing. Does anyone really think Denunzio is packing heat? Gonna be a fighter? The guy just runs and the Cops have a bee in their bonnets for him and it ends up costing the rest of us more money. And not for a minute do I believe they didn't know exactly who they were dealing with and hoping to gain from it. Yes, that was a double negative.
On Cops Arrest Denunzio Again

To some degree ok. No bars or bar owners I have seen are pinning people down by the throat and pouring drinks down them. But as you(the server/owner) get someone more and more inebriated by serving them and making your business $$$$, their decision making is compromised. It is ironic that this is the teaching you get in the DUI class you receive at the hands of the law that busts you for poor decisions. So at what point do you(the server) cut them off? When you feel they can't make good decisions for themselves? By then isn't it already too late? When you're making just over minimum wage and completely rely on tips for your income, what is the impetus to cut them off when it will just be someone elses problem?
