I rented for many, many years. I consistently paid at least 50-60% of my take home pay for housing since moving here in 1979. I always had roommates. I often worked 2 jobs to make ends meet. The new rental crunch does appear tighter but it has always been just plain tough to live and work in Santa Barbara.

Part of any new requirements should be 5, to begin with, mandatory meetings for parents of those children with staff. The topics would be determined by an advisory board or the Board itself. All topics would include and have improvement and success at school as their target. Let's involve ALL stake holders.

Your title (Hes and Shes) should also probably include the proposed gender-neutral pronoun of choice - zhim, zhers,and zhimself!

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!
