"Concessions" consisted of loss of salary through mandatory, unpaid furloughs, giving up raises that had already been agreed to in multi-year contracts, and laying off workers. Real money, not the situation foofighter posits.

JohnLocke has hit the nail on the head. Goleta has always tried to make Venoco go away, so they shouldn't act too surprised that when they speak out of both sides of their mouth that Venoco will recognize the bs and withdraw their offer. The Goleta City Council acts, and has for a long time, like a bunch of bozos.

My prediction is that State Lands will approve Venoco's application and will do what it needs to do to move the oil, and Goleta will be left on the sidelines, fuming like a petulant child.

Lorna, Rocket, being a dog, which have pack sensibilities, sees you as the Alpha of the household, and sees himself as the second in command. Now, with the introduction of a new male into the mix, Rocket feels that his position is being threatened, and is trying to protect his status. Jim needs to establish his position as the new Beta, or Alpha, in a manner that Rocket will feel comfortable with. EastBeach is actually not that far off the mark as food is a powerful motivator. If Jim starts regularly feeding Rocket at mealtime that will establish Jim in the provider role that Rocket will respond to.

No, J_A,, let's go further back in time and only allow white, land-owning males to vote! Just kidding. I moved here in 1971 to go to UCSB, graduated, got a job, bought a house, and am still here. According to some people's thinking I should not have been able to vote while I was "just" a student.

It probably doesn't mention encroachment into public areas because zoning ordinances typically regulate private, not public property. The City can come through whenever they want and remove vegetation within the right-of-way (including public sidewalks) that is impeding pedestrian or vehicular traffic or causing safety issues.

Yes, those bulobouts are an expensive menace to society! Of course, if SB drivers actually drove responsibly, the City wouln't have to spend money on traffic calming devices.

Maybe if all the neighbors un-converted their garages from storage or illegal units there wouldn't be such a street-parking problem.
