No credit for the Nature Conservancy people- they had to be taken off the Channel Islands in handcuffs because they were trying to kill ALL the wildlife when their contracts said only 50% were to be killed. Any wildlife left would have meant expense money spent by themto maintain the Channel Islands if the Nature Conservancy had gotten a conservancy contract after the thinning project was done. In other words, total deaths of the Channel Island wildlife means $$$$$$ coming into the Nature Conservancy.

Williams is part of the trouble that needs fixing- he transfers resources that locals need- then a couple of years later the trouble is bigger so he costs the locals more resources. What does his cars have anything to do with education in this story? Is he wanting a raise(for making things worse!)? It was his stupidity for not having transportation in this instance not the taxpayers fault!

When he Los Angeles Archdiocese of the Catholic Church gave the land for the gardens and I registered the organization(Santa Barbara Botanical Garden(never anything formal before)) I set up a volunteer board with guidelines and ONE paid employee. Expanding the paid staff has failed- support the volunteers. By the way I noticed some faking of putting in new plants(to draw in donations) in recent years- watch for that because a good reputation is needed for future donations.

In California, “Fair Trade” is basically money that is given as bribes to a few in the state government for protection from law suits that occur when the “Fair Trade” product has damaged another product's sales.

"humanistic health care" meaning that they are too fat-headed and money-greedy to recognize that other types of healthcare people are humans also who care about people- that is one heritage of Isla Vista: damn the others, "We are the humans, you are not!"

False about palms being at East Beach and Cabrillo Boulevard since the 1890s-there were none in the early 1950s when a Santa Barbara mayor started a memorial program where people paid for small potted palms at $2 each, then the mayor ordered the palm plants and I planted them on the ocean side the business paid for the others that I planted on the inland side(donations paid for the present plants in Chase Palm Park that I planted when everything died of root rot one year(new soil was put in)). Some city employees resold the memorial part where there are small plaques next to the palms close to the swimming pool-those I had planted myself maybe 30 years prior(similiar to the creek project people who have said they did the plant work in the creeks(that I did 50 years ago!). "the bitter end" refers to corrupt government employees who say the tree is no good(a lie) so that somebody gives the department a bunch of money to replace ONE tree. Real corruption did not happen when that mayor was beaten by the Nature Conservancy in their attempt to make the city stop giving me plant projects(no charge by me) so that they could set up theit conservancies. The mayor pretended to do as they said but I kept on with what is about 500,000 trees in and around Santa Barbara now. Santa Barbara was treeless when the Catholic Church started their mission in Santa Barbara- almost without any plants, the Spanish brought their own seeds to grow feed for their horses and cattle.

The clean creek project is a scam meant to give certain "environmental" people money for doing nothing but watchers are preventing them from taking the coffer money without being noticed so there is much talk and no action. UCSB draws much "environmental" money that they do little or nothing- from people far away that cannot see that UCSB is basically stealing their money. UCSB has been, for example, accepting much grant money to put in plants at various places- plants that I put in more than 50 years ago! The locals have been trying the same trick in the creeks but, like I said, people notice that they do not do anything! I know because I put plants on every creek bank in and around Santa Barbara 50 years ago. Already some people have been lying by saying they did some of that plant work I did. I did all that for love,not any money at all(a few bullets came towards me from the Nature Conservancy). New people want money- without doing any work except complain,complain,complain.

Old park- I put in hundreds of thousands of trees and other plants by seed- by hand and by arial seeding more than 50 years ago plus prepared some of the camp sites at that time. Chuck Graham: check your facts.
