Well, if parking spots at the hotel are at such a premium, take one guess who is going to be "encouraged" to take public transportation. I don't think it will be upper management!

This is about a breach in security of privately owned hospital medical records. My argument is that not everything done privately is done well. I have heard that EVERYTHING is always done better privately. This proves my point.

And not a mention of Obamacare! Isn't this a privately run hospital? You mean everything run privately isn't perfect? I'm shocked.

At John_Adams@ Thank you for pointing out something I already mentioned as being a non topic - you make the obvious more obvious! When they redid the area where I walk for the third time, I wondered if all the rubble, which ended up in the landfill, was also included in the long range cost? Maybe that's where we got the "chump change" idea of which you speak?

This isn't only about making a good neighborhood better! This is about better access to a county beach, a county road, and access to the Mesa. It's about reducing pollution. It's about making a good decision which will affect traffic patterns for far into the future. I won't bring up my favorite non topic, in closing, about the ridiculous waste of money spent putting in red bricks for crosswalks down on Cabrillo Blvd. which later had to be paved over with .... asphalt!

The only thing that bothers me are the No Parking All Day signs. If they know the ship needs to shuttle people from 10-4 then mark the signs appropriately i.e., 10-4. Those two hours till 6 p.m. are critical for some of us who use the parking along Cabrillo Blvd.

I agree with most of what Sothep has to write until the last line. This proves bilid's assertion that the mask indeed becomes the scarlet (letter) mask. Just because someone didn't get a flu shot you are willing to base all future medical needs of a loved one on this?

At Dr Dan - Please be careful equating young with vibrant - I've been teaching for over 30 years and I'm still young and vibrant. I give some of those youngsters (and I mean the "young" teachers") a run for their money...daily. My experience also makes for a nice combination. I absolutely love, love, love my job!

So, about 1 in 5 living in poverty? Is it any wonder we have an achievement gap? I think we should thank every teacher who goes into the classroom everyday knowing that 6 out of a classroom of 30 kids is already dealing with extenuating circumstances.

You are wrong willy88. The Superintendent and the School Board have more to do with scraping the tests than the teachers' "union". Please educate and update your woefully and profoundly outdated opinions. For starters, the teachers in the Santa Barbara Unified School District belong to an association. I will let you do your homework and figure out the difference.
