Hasn't Sansum over time matched in health care a reputation as sterling as that enjoyed by the Mayo Clinic? I seem to recall it attracting patients from all over the United States as well as abroad.

From reading your article, it's hard to believe that once upon a time Goleta was considered the boonies, the tullies. And we could always tell if you were native or not to the area if you gave Goleta a long "o." You were definitely native if you said "Guh-leeta." My, how things have changed! So, yeah, maybe it's time to revisit and "smell the roses."

The come as you are accommodation policy might have been a pragmatic one. There were savings in public monies for ambulance and ER services (such services proving repetitive and thus costly) since the inebriate was in shelter where no physical harm could develop. Businesses were spared the use of public restroom facilities by nonpaying customers. Law enforcement could turn its energies to critical trouble spots. And personal hygiene regimens could be maintained where otherwise there might be challenges to the person and to the community. But the question now is, what options are available for those refusing long-term care towards rehabilitation? And addressing the question of rehabilitation, do statistics show any pluck for the buck spent towards such an end?

Thanks for the salute and walk down Memory Lane, Ms. Lopez. Did I miss the name of affable golfer Al Geiberger somewhere? Her life was cut short prematurely, still we remember Adele Crago, who went on to movie fame as Carolyn Craig ("Giant"). Ernie and Joyce Brooks, they of the Brooks Institute of Photography, should be charter members of the Hall of Fame as well as international photographer, David Muench.
But, heck, there are some of in-house Hall of Famers deserving of some mention. In football, for example, their careers may not have extended beyond SBHS, but we do recall sparkling hometown play on the football field at Peabody Stadium by Peter O'Garro, Willie Peters, and Danny Powell. The CIF Championships always included these names.
Thanks for the memories, to plagiarize Bob Hope. Aw, hell, so long as I'm stealing, let me go the distance:
" Santa Barbara, hail to thee, Strong thy ties shall ever be. Son and daughter praise thy name, Honor thee and spread thy fame. Learning and fellowship always thou art, Deep graven these on ever heart. Strong they ties shall ever be, Santa Barbara, hail to thee!

May I please add that I do respect the time honored innocent until proven guilty element of Anglo-Saxon Law, as opposed to the rush-to-judgement stance.

Years ago it occurred to me that a series of on-campus lectures, beginning at junior high school level, particularly by women in law enforcement, might be helpful in matters of this nature. Was there a background check done here? I know after the fact criticisms are not helpful. Yet I do raise the question why one of the rules of employment did not address a policy of no intimate, private, contact between staff and student? Then, too, under what circumstance was he allowed such personal and obviously unsupervised contact in the first place, especially when one student complained of repeated felonious behaviour?

Change the culture, change the outlook. With this in mind, it's something of an irony that there exists tension between the African American and Mexicans. History has it that the original colonies of San Diego and Los Angeles were populated by African Americans, Mexicans, and Spaniards. In fact, the mother of the first governor of California, Pio Pico, is listed as a woman of mixed African/Spanish heritage, "una mulata." So history, considering what must have been an easy interaction between the two groups, has indeed taken an unfortunate turn for both these marginalized groups. There is no historical basis for this poisonous development between the two other than the possibility of assimilation of Anglo culture. But then again, penal colonies are breeding grounds for this kind of toxic social interaction.

"In response to these allegations, Mahony issued a lengthy statement apologizing for not doing more to protect the children of his archdiocese." An "apology" for not doing more? Come again. Did someone within reach of a telephone watch the neighbor's house burn down before calling responders?

And just what is the basis for these "Latest in Personnel Shake-Ups at the Station"? Is there something the public is unaware of? Why would any sane person with such employment in lovely Santa Barbara want to leave but for unspoken and guarded reasons? The very use of the word "shake-ups" raises eyebrows! Aw, heck. Let me cut to the chase. Is there some "dirt" under the rug?
