Stereotyping is a horrible personality trait.

On Million-Dollar Cycling Challenge Hits S.B.

What I don't understand:

The pursuit on 10/3 ended at 154/Cath Oaks w/ DePerna getting away.

The pursuit on Sat involved her again, and the SAME CAR.

How did she get the car back from the 154/Cath Oaks area? Did she just wait in the bushes until the cops left and then drove away?

On Three Arrested After High Speed Chase and Crash

Gotcha! I can attest to trains "sneaking up". It happened to me once when we were just crossing the tracks to hit the beach.

No noise, no horn, all of a sudden there's an Amtrak coming around the bend. We had looked both ways and were not dallying on the tracks, but one of our group came close to having to dive out of the way. It was on a pretty gentle bend too.

blahblah, they didn't have their fate thrust upon them, they CHOSE to go on the trestle instead of staying on the bluffs where the view is very nearly identical.

The dumb thing is they could've gotten the same photos/view by standing on the cliffs to the east of the trestle. There'd have been no danger even when the train passed. There is plenty of space there to cross the tracks and look at the view. There's even the same view without even crossing the tracks at all.

It's so disappointing the tribe feels the need to put up a 12 story building. There's nothing remotely close to that in the Valley. Is there even anything that tall in SB County?

It'll also bring increases in crime, DUI, accidents, traffic, etc.

I'd expect property values will decrease for those who live nearby.

But I guess it's ok because Armenta says they do their best to work with the community (yeah right!). Thanks for nothing.

I'm curious if crusher-destemmers could be made to use the technology available on table saws whereby the blade stops instantly if it hits something soft. They won't even damage a raw hot dog. I know the winery machines don't have a blade like a saw but the technology might work?

It's not "IN" Goleta per official maps. 93111 is SB.

loony goes off on a tangent about Bundy and we're no longer talking about the Adventure Pass. . .

On Adventure Pass Foes Claim Victory

Posted on April 30 at 3:51 p.m.

The adventure pass was put in place to fund improvements in the forecast. Initially it was run by FS employees.

With outside concessionaires running it and taking their profit, how can it possibly be making any money to fund anything? I want to see the balance sheet on the program, complete with how much the outside vendor is taking, what it has funded in the forest, and so on.

The concessionaires have a racket going and they aren't going to give it up. It's complete and utter BS.

If I drive to the Upper Oso area, park on the public road before the campground, and travel into the back country, I am NOT going to be buying a pass.
