Frivolous claim by a saddened mother chasing money as revenge...
This is 100% the fault of the deceased. Perhaps if his mother had been a better mother, she would have taught him limits and made arrangements for his safety at all times. An adult child is an adult, and is fully responsible for his own actions and in this case, sheer stupidity.
I've been a drinker most of my adult life but have never been drunk enough to walk onto a freeway...even my friends who are black out drunks aren't this stupid. This was Darwin at work.
On Taxi Company Sued For Passenger's Death

Brimo7272, In a town of < 200k with many, many students, unemployed and underemployed. Why are we importing so much of our workforce?
The symptoms are never the cause. We need to look at the causes of this issue rather than continue to build, build and build to appease an ever increasing population.
I see a ton of single driver cars driving in traffic at 4pm on weekdays all heading south. Where do they work? And why do they spend thousands a year on commuting to jobs that dont pay them well enough to live here but well enough that they are willing to spend thousands of dollars and hours a year commuting to and from?
Something smells fishy here and I'd like to know what is causing the stink rather than just wash down the docks, every day...and ignoring the cause.
On Which Way to Widen 101?

I think the freeway needs to be widened but the community would be better served with a commuter train from Oxnard to Goleta.
Almost all the traffic occurs between weekday commute hours. Which means that the vast majority of SB workers are commuting in from the south. Who are these people? Where do they work?
Why should the entire community need to suffer because they choose to commute 40miles each way, by themselves, everyday? What about the companies that are hiring these folks? Dont they have any responsibility on the impact their hiring practices and employee have on the roads and on the community? I say yes.
I drive this road at all hours from Summerland into SB. Its bad from 7am- 8:30 No Bound and So bound starting at 3:30pm and clears at about 6:15.
I'd like to know what jobs these folks commute to that force them on the road at 3:30pm?
There is something else driving this problem, its either the lack of available housing in SB or the lack of available workers... something is out of balance and that imbalance is causing all the traffic. Why do we have to import so many workers and why do companies hire so many people who live so far away? Its either due to hiring practices or workforce availability. But with the unemployment rate where it is, who are these workers and where do they work?

To blame the private mortgage greed fest that induced the bubble and the crash on any politician shows those with a brain that you have none...
No politician caused the mess. No politician made hundreds / thousands of companies seek out unqualified recipients for their profit and gain. No politician forced the Investment Banks to created derivatives...and sell those on the open market.
You folks are either really stupid or really lazy for you're simply parroting your chosen party and its warlords...when all the facts are easily available. And that makes you the fool for following blindly and jumping on the bandwagon. If you dont know, dont say. It only makes you sound like an idiot.
On Housing Experiment Makes Debut
Posted on May 17 at 12:29 p.m.
Let's be honest. The underlying factor is all of this is illegal immigration. Too many people who cannot afford to live here having too many babies... these people take from the housing inventory and force citizens out...all without providing any value to our community.
We subsidize local business owners by giving them impunity when hiring so they're profits are assured. We subsidize health care, education and even cell phones for the poor... we give the poor, uneducated, unskilled people in this town so much that it really pays to make less and do nothing... And these are not the people we want. Poor, ignorant, unskilled and unwilling to better themselves... and guess what? They all have cable tv and cell phones...
The city has no place in this transaction. They are here to administer basic services and provide a safe, clean environment for the citizens of the city. Not to try and recreate the laws of economics while ignoring the true causes of our housing problem... too many people who should not be here either due to being illegal immigrants or because they are not financially able...

There's no dancing in this town...
What a joke. The whole dance permit issue is so draconian its laughable... You're not allowed to move to music unless the city gets their money... America, the least free place in the modern world...and perhaps the entire world.

Shocking to read that Wolfe and Associates claims to have no record of any reported issue.. shocking!
I sure do hope that Wolfe is sued into the poor house. They deserve to suffer for all the pain they cause others...pain and suffering with no regard. The company is a parasite.

This is a no brainer but unfortunately most of those hard core hunters also suffer from no-brain syndrome...so expect a loud opposition to arise.
Ban lead. Just ban it. They can make the bullets out of other metals.
