Goleta ice rink gets funding

Sunrise: 6:33 a.m. Sunset: 5:50 p.m.

Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District bus drivers and maintenance crews are poised to strike if a final mediation session produces no results. Last August, members voted to reject a contract put forward by


MTD. Eight months later, state mediation sessions have fallen apart and the workers are near the end of the line. Bill Elder of the Teamsters Local 186 said workers don’t want a strike anymore than MTD management does, but that there hasn’t been any change to the original August con-


tract. If a deal is not worked out by March 1, drivers and maintenance workers could go on strike. “They’re trying everything they can to see that we get a fair deal without a labor dispute,” Elder said of the union negotiators. “But at some point if it’s just not going to change, the


members have spoken and we will have to have a strike.” Elder said the drivers and maintenance crew are well aware that the economy has suffered over the last few years and they know that typical wage and pension increases aren’t feasible in this climate. See STRIKE, page 12

The Ice in Paradise campaign to build an ice rink in Goleta reached the critical $3 million mark after a large donation from two local residents.

Santa Barbara city officials are proposing major changes to Cabrillo Ball Field, all aimed at driving out the homeless and making the area suitable for kids and familes.

Residents want homeless out and basketball, handball courts in BY JOSHUA MOLINA DAILY SOUND EDITOR

For decades, the Cabrillo Ball Field has been a place for youth and adults to play baseball. And it’s also been a hangout for the homeless. Now, city officials and business owners near the beachfront field are

looking to drive the homeless out and transform the park into a vibrant community destination. Among the ideas on the table include, building basketball courts, soccer fields, and even a wall for people to play handball. Some people want a children’s playground or a walking track around the existing

field. The city’s Parks and Recreation Department met Wednesday to talk about overhauling the Cabrillo Ball Field. The changes could cost as much as $900,000. “I hope we can do something that will work,” said business owner and commissioner Scott Burns. “It is

kind of exciting to be here and hopefully say yes to something instead of no.” The park has been at the center of controversy for years largely because of the growing number of aggressive homeless people at the park. Parents have complained that See CABRILLO, page 4

Goleta ice rink plans move ahead BY JOSHUA MOLINA DAILY SOUND EDITOR

The dream of an ice skating rink in Goleta has moved a step closer to reality. Two local residents, Norm Waitt and Christina Djernaes, have donated $250,000 to the Ice in Paradise campaign. The fundraising effort has now moved past the critical $3 million mark. The entire project is expected to cost about $8 million. With the donation, the "Ice in Paradise" campaign can now seek bidders for the design-build phase. "It's wonderful to receive these generous gifts that help move the Ice in Paradise campaign forward significantly,” said Kathy Mintzer, the Greater Santa Barbara Ice Skating Association president. The organization is raising funds to build a public ice skating arena near Girsh Park in Goleta. Waitt is co-founder of Gateway Computers, and is involved in various other business ventures. Waitt is also founder of the Kind World Foundation, a non-profit organization that supports performing arts, the environment, health

and human services and education and scholarship programs. Djernaes is a Santa Barbara native, and an employment attorney with experience in juvenile justice and helping atrisk youth. Djernaes grew up in the city and remembers skating at the Ice Patch on the Mesa as a child. She has two children, Sophia, 11, and Torben, 7, who are learning to skate at the Oxnard rink. "I love the idea of an ice rink returning to my hometown,” she said in a prepared statement. “Local kids from all walks of life would greatly benefit from afterschool and weekend programs at the skate rink, where they can develop personal skills, mastery and overall confidence they can take with them anywhere in life. It's really a fantastic idea." She also worked as a deputy district attorney in San Luis Obispo County’s child protective services. Waitt and Djernaes said they both recognize the big need for accessible recreational outlets in the Santa Barbara region and the benefits offered by the ice skating project. Waitt added, "It's a good thing for

Californians on the coast to have because there are no outdoor skating rinks like in my hometown of Sioux City, Iowa. It's a wonderful outlet for kids.” The gifts received from Waitt and Djernaes and the Kind World Foundation include the naming rights for the junior rink scoreboard and for five VIP spectator seats. Like the lack of a miniature golf course, parents and youth have long perceived the unavailability of a skating rink as a major community deficiency. Dozens of families every week drive to Oxnard to treat their children to an ice skating experience. Such a trek south, however, is costly, time-consuming and can be unreasonable for families on a budget. Backers of the project believe that the ice skating rink will provide a safe recreational resource for the entire community. The rink will be a place for all skaters to feel welcome, regardless of ability. As Santa Barbara struggles with problems related to youth crime, supporters of the ice skating rink believe that it will offer a much-needed recreational outlet for at-risk youth.

Police to hold weekend DUI checkpoints

DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT The Santa Barbara Police Department will hold DUI checkpoints on Friday and Saturday this weekend. The department will also be checking for valid driver’s licenses. The checkpoints will take place from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. at undisclosed areas. “The Santa Barbara Police Department encourages everyone to drink responsibly, pre-arrange for a ride home, designate a

driver and understand that every officer will be diligently looking for the impaired driver,” said Sgt. Mike McGrew, in a prepared statement. “Additionally, DUI enforcement officers will be on patrol throughout the weekend and we would prefer to arrest the DUI driver than to find them in a collision.” Funding for this program is provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

hope to fix. It’s unclear how the city would pay for any park improvements. The city has made dramatic cuts to its park maintenance and recreation programs over the last few years. “We don’t always have the funds to maintain our facilities the way we would like to maintain them,” Zachary said. The Ball Field is within the city’s Redevelopment Area, so the city might spend redevelopment funds. With the state threatening to take the city’s redevelopment funds to help balance the statewide budget, officials are looking at ways to spend the money before it is taken away. Longtime Parks Commissioner

Beebe Longstreet said the city should come up with a plan for the Field so that it can move forward once more funding becomes available. The Cabrillo Ball Field, she said, is long overdue for a makeover. “We have to maximize the use of any fields we have available,” Longstreet said. “It is wonderful to sit in a community meeting where we are a planning again as opposed to complaining.” Many of the speakers Wednesday night expressed an interest in building basketball courts, claiming that there’s a lack of courts in the area. “Santa Barbara has a real dearth of public basketball courts, particularly near the beach,” said Steve See BALL FIELD, page 10

Quaids may stay in Canada

Hollywood actor Randy Quaid is a step closer to being allowed to live in Canada, after fleeing from what he said was a conspiracy of "star whackers" who were out to get him, his attorneys said on Wednesday. Canadian border officials have ended their efforts to send him back to the United States where he is facing criminal vandalism charges in a property dispute, the attorneys said. Quaid's wife Evi was granted Canadian citizenship this month because her father was born in Canada, and she is now allowed to sponsor her husband to remain in the country as a permanent resident, lawyer Catherine Sas said. A final decision on his residency request will be made by Canadian immigration authorities, but he can remain in the country while that happens.

Wall St. slides on Libya unrest

U.S. stocks dropped for a second straight session on Wednesday as Libya's violence sent oil prices up briefly to $100 a barrel and tech shares sank, adding credence to calls for a market correction. Oil futures jumped to their highest since October 2008 amid worries about supply disruptions in Libya, a top oil producer. Late in the day, oil eased off the day's highs, helping stocks trim losses. The day's drop follows a 2.1 percent decline in the S&P 500 on Wednesday, and the second straight session of above-average trading volume. However, since a modest correction is expected, investors at this point are taking the declines in stride.

Are We All In Jeopardy Now?


ast week, when the IBM supercomputer Watson handily defeated two top Jeopardy! champions during an exhibition contest of the popular trivia game show, media commentators had a host of questions. "What other jobs will machines soon be taking over?" Time Magazine wanted to know. "Does the IBM supercomputer herald man's imminent subjugation by machines?" Wired inquired. "Is Watson the wellkept secret behind Jennifer Aniston's new baby bump?" asked Us Weekly. All the buzz was certainly warranted. Using a 15-terabyte database filled with 200 million pages of information and a problem-solving formula that took IBM engineers over six years to develop, Watson made quick work of challengers Brad Rutter, Jeopardy!'s top all-time money winner, and Ken Jennings, the show's record-holder for most consecutive wins. Watson finished the two-day contest with a score of $77,147 to Jennings' $24,000 and Rutter's $21,000, pocketing $1 million in first place prize money in the process. Watching Watson mow down such stiff competition, some people reasonably began to wonder whether this event might foreshadow a Terminatoresque future where we wake up one day to find that machines have run amok and begun to hunt down their human creators. The IBM engineers behind Watson scoffed at this notion, reassuring interviewers that any machine capable of achieving the level of sentience necessary to start exterminating humans would surely get to us before we ever woke up. In the meantime, we can take some comfort from knowing that Watson wasn't a perfect trivia-answering machine. During the two day contest it did occasionally stumble, at different times mistakenly calling Toronto a city in the United States, suggesting that grasshoppers eat a kosher diet, placing the birth of the Oreo in the


1920s instead of the 1910s and identifying the illness that wiped out a third of the population of Europe during the middle ages as "Disco Fever." OK, I made up that last one. But if Watson still has to work out some kinks before subjugating the human race, what's it after in the meantime? My guess is that Watson will turn its attention to becoming adept at some other activity that’s just as quintessentially MALCOLM human - and pointFLESCHNER less - as answering trivia questions on TV. So we may soon see Watson clones tangoing circles around the other celebrities on Dancing With the Stars, taking MTV on tours of palatial “robo-cribs,” and not only keeping up with, but perhaps even surpassing, the Kardashians at whatever it is that the Kardashians do. Needless to say, this is not the direction IBM claims to be taking Watson's specialized talents. Instead, we're told that Watson's technology will be repurposed for the medical field to replace some of the functions currently performed by doctors and nurses. Early results show promise, too, indicating that today, in a clinical setting, a Watson computer will typically make patients wait for 20 minutes in a small, windowless room before answering their questions, and researchers suggest that they expect to bump that figure up to 30 minutes by early 2015. And what about psychiatry? With Watson’s near-mastery of the entirety of human knowledge, it’s reasonable to believe that a machine using similar technology could be placed in an office setting, listen to a patient on a couch describing his or her life’s

woes and then, at appropriate intervals, offer up phrases with proven therapeutic value like "Really? Tell me more," "And how does that make you feel?" and "Our hour's up. That will be $200." Ultimately, the IBM engineers seem to be shooting for machines that can exceed human capabilities in areas once thought to be uniquely human endeavors, but free of our many all-too-human failings. For as Ken Jennings observed, unlike a live player, Watson couldn't be intimidated, never got discouraged by a wrong answer and didn't grow cocky after getting an answer right. Not to mention that Watson has no underarms in which to generate expanding pools of flop sweat. Well, despite Watson's success at trivia, I remain skeptical. Because like it or not, much of what we consider the height of human achievement in art, literature, music and a range of other creative arenas would have been impossible without those very same "failings." Could the ancient Egyptians have built the pyramids without enslaving thousands? Could Hemingway have written The Old Man and the Sea without also being an angry, drunken lout? Could Charlie Sheen be such a talented comedic actor without regularly going on four-day-long cocaine-fueled binges and locking $1,000-a-night prostitutes in exclusive hotel bathrooms? OK, bad example. But the point is that while I'm duly impressed that engineers have programmed a computer to beat humans at answering trivia questions, I'm not too concerned. When the computer starts taking the prize money and blowing it on hookers and coke, that’s when I’ll start worrying. Malcolm welcomes reader suggestions for averting the coming Robopocalypse at

Bald Mice and Other Things We Should Never Have to Put Up With T MIKE ON THE MOVE

he other night I checked out a couple of rental movies and accidentally clicked on ‘French’ as the language of choice. I’ve been to Paris a few times and I’ve mastered the French phrase most necessary to survive there, mainly, “Du chocolat croissants si’l vous plait,” but it didn’t take me long to realize I had no idea what was going on in the movie. Funny thing. I had worked all afternoon on my tax forms and although they are reportedly in English, I don’t have any idea what is going on there, either. In fact, it’s worse, I can’t even order chocolate croissants in tax language. My question is, why do we put up with all this tax gibberish? It’s ridiculous, oppressive, repressive and ridiculous. I know I said ridiculous twice, but that’s what it is -- ridiculously ridiculous. Why not a flat seven percent tax for everyone? No deductions. Just seven percent across the board. Most economists agree that would generate more income to the government than the current system, which is used and abused by the fat cats who end up not paying anything. Then the entire American tax code could be written in one sentence, in English -- “Pay seven percent of your income to the government.” The end.

*** And while we’re at it, why are we putting up with having our troops in Iran? Quick, can you give one good reason we’re over there, other than we can’t think of anything else to do with a cou-

ple of billion dollars a day? If we really need to occupy someplace, I say let’s focus on Ojai. There are rumors of subversive activity up there, of course that could just be the bulb-out supporters who have reportedly moved out of Santa Barbara into insurgent camps near Lake Casitas. *** Couple of local MIKE items need our BOWKER attention. First, a good guy named Rudy Carlos needs a donor for a bone marrow transplant to help him fight a rare form of leukemia. He has a wife and four daughters and could use a hand in paying for mounting medical costs. A trust fund has been set up at the Santa Barbara Bank & Trust and some local restaurants and doing what they can to help. For more info go to:

*** Also, while state budget cuts have to come and they aren’t going to make many people very happy, Gov. Brown needs to forego cutting services to the 1,200 families with children with disabilities in Santa Barbara County. I mean, come on…

*** Finally, I just have to share these last

two items with you. The New York Times News Service recently reported that relieving stress on bald male mice enabled them to grow hair again. That’s amazing to me…I’m thinking we could probably reduce male pattern baldness by 25 percent just by simplifying the tax code.

*** And last, and probably least, I ran across this blog recently on the five things that women should not put up when it comes to single men. The first four seemed reasonable, although one of them was single guys who spend too much time with their friends….there’s a little ’yikes’ in that one, but the fifth one still has me laughing. Here it is: “Guys who are clamoring for a good girlfriend, but who insist on dating hot, high-maintenance crazy chicks. If you want a girlfriend, don’t go for the bartender in a studded vest. I mean, do you want to settle down or just have sex on a consistent basis?”

*** P.S….Tomorrow at 5 p.m. there will be an historical lecture in Solvang on the Danish Pastor Grundtvig, whose followers were called Grundtvigians, or “Happy Danes.“ Being Danish, I now happily consider myself a Grundtvigian, although I had not heard of them before yesterday. Nevertheless, I will probably remain one unless I have to settle down with the above-mentioned blogger. The lecture will be held at the Bethania Lutheran Church.

Berry, a 5-2 sophomore, nearly had a

triple-double with 13 points, 12 rebounds and eight steals. The Vaqueros (21-10) won their fourth straight game and earned a second-round date at No. 2 seed San Bernardino Valley on Saturday at 7 p.m. The Wolverines beat the Vaqueros 80-56 on Nov. 20 in the championship of SBCC’s MTXE Tournament. Berry tied her career high in rebounds on a night when the Vaqueros won the board battle 52-37. SBCC had a whopping 25 offensive rebounds, led by Berry with six. Her eight steals are a new career best.

Berry picked up her fourth foul with 17:51 to play and her team leading 42-31. “I had Brooke’s back,“ said Bealer, who was named first-team All-WSC North earlier in the week. “She had four fouls and I had to step it up as a sophomore. It‘s like we‘re competing for steals -- when she gets one, I have to get one.” Berry sat out for 6½ minutes and shortly after she returned, SBCC went on a 16-7 run to take extend the margin to 64-47. Bealer started the run with a 3-pointer and had six points in the outburst as did


Lyndsay Bergus. Jennifer Jimenez had 12 points and six rebounds for the Vaqueros, who played without guard Nanice Kollee (flu), the No. 3 scorer at 9.4 points. Mercedes Gonzalez had eight rebounds off the bench. Janelle Wong hit 3-of-5 from downtown and scored 12 of her 14 points in the first half as the 15th-seeded Vaqueros built a 3828 lead. Berry’s 12-foot jumper ignited a 12-0 run that boosted the lead to 33-20 with 3:50 left in the opening half.

Plan Santa Barbara General Plan Update City Council Meeting to Provide Direction on the Plan Santa Barbara General Plan Update Tuesday, March 1, 2011, 2:00 p.m.* City Hall, City Council Chambers, 735 Anacapa St. Plan Santa Barbara (PlanSB) is the planning process to update Santa Barbaraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s General Plan. The General Plan shapes development in the City through goals, policies and programs concerning growth management, environment, housing, transportation and land use to meet community needs now and in the future. The draft General Plan document was last considered by the full Council in November 2010. Since then an Ad Hoc Subcommittee of Council has been discussing residential densities and targeted locations which could be included in the General Plan. The purpose of meeting with the full Council is to get direction on key issues including density and the overall course for the General Plan Update.

Fairly to join Hall of Champions SPORTS



Rusty Fairly, a former baseball coach at SBCC, will be inducted into the Long Beach City College Hall of Champions as an emeritus selection. Fairly is one of six former Vikings to be honored on Friday, Feb. 25, in a noon ceremony at the Hall of Champions Gym. As an emeritus selection, the inductee must have completed his participation at Long Beach City College 50 years prior to induction or be deceased. Fairly played football and baseball at LBCC from 1951-53. He was a quarterback and co-captain of the football team and


FROM PAGE 4 Romanowsky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There would be a palpable excitement in the community if word got out about beachside basketball courts.â&#x20AC;? Still, despite the optimism, the recent changes to the park have brought unintended consequences. The city recently installed a fence around the backstop of the ball field, to keep the homeless away from people on the baseball diamond. The fence has succeeded at keeping the aggressive homeless at bay, but it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stopped the homeless from causing problems in the area. The homeless have simply moved on. Nancy Rapp, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parks and

played catcher on the baseball squad. He went on to play both sports at the University of Denver and was a two-time all-conference selection in football and honorable mention All-American in 1954. He was the MVP of the 1954 Sun Bowl and played pro football in the Canadian Football League. He was inducted into the University of Denver Hall of Fame in 2002. Fairly was an assistant football coach at SBCC and spent 18 years as head baseball coach (1965-82). He also served as a Santa Barbara City Councilman and Mayor Pro Tempore from 1987-98. In 1989, he was inducted into the Santa Barbara Athletic Round Table Hall of Fame.

Recreation Director, said the homeless are now causing problems along other parts of the waterfront. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are now getting complaints about transients on East Beach,â&#x20AC;? Rapp said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are also seeing an increase in problems at Chase Palm Park. We do have a continuing problem in our other parks. We just have shifted the problem to other park areas.â&#x20AC;? Still, for some, driving the homeless out of at least one popular city park is a good start. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This area should be aimed at youth activities, such as youth football and handball courts and other stuff,â&#x20AC;? said Parks and Recreation Commissioner Michael Yi, who is an intern on the board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am very excited that the transient population has migrated from this area.â&#x20AC;?

The General Plan documents can be viewed on the PlanSB website, or at the Planning Division office, 630 Garden Street, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and alternate Fridays. You are invited to attend this hearing and address your verbal comments to the City Council.

HOROSCOPES by Eugenia Last

Happy Birthday: You'll tend to overreact and take on insurmountable projects and responsibilities this year. Doors will open to learn new skills and to meet new people, but you can only take advantage of such opportunities if you haven't burdened yourself with impossible tasks. Don't do anything you don't have the time or the desire to do. Your numbers are 4, 7, 16, 24, 39, 40, 44 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Look over your books and personal paperwork and you will find something interesting that you overlooked. You may have to argue your concern with an institution or government agency but it will be worth it. 5 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don't get railroaded into doing things for free when you need the cash. It's important not to underestimate yourself. A bad job will result in a poor review and possible job demotion or loss. Call in favors. 3 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Someone is watching your every move and, with the slightest error, you will be penalized for your shortsightedness. Emotions will play a factor in the way you react personally and professionally. Be sure you have the facts to back you up. 3 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): You

don't have to impress anyone if you put every effort into doing your best. Presenting and promoting what you have to offer will lead to an opportunity. Don't exaggerate about what you have to offer. 3 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You'll be eager to spend, travel and do whatever you can to find a little adventure and excitement. Don't let your desires turn into a costly venture that will leave you strapped financially. Emotional deception is apparent. 5 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don't be afraid to make a move or to put pressure on someone from whom you need an answer. Love is in the stars and, if you are upfront and honest, you stand a better chance of receiving what you ask for. Personal changes will boost your confidence. 2 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Limit your spending and don't fall for a fast-talking salesperson offering a product that claims unrealistic results. Focus on damage control at home where someone is likely to be overindulgent or to overreact. 4 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Put more time into your personal and home life, interacting with the people you love. The things you do to smooth over any personal problems will bring about stellar results, enabling you to follow a sought-after creative path. 3 stars SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Be honest with yourself about what you want and what you don't want.

Edited by Timothy E. Parker September 18, 2007

Personal changes are necessary. Create the opportunity you need to move forward by eliminating what isn't working in your life right now. 3 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): You have to offer what you can to the groups you feel deserve help. Once you get involved in something you believe in, you will begin to meet people who can offer you something in return. It's time to mix the past and present to find your future. 4 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Stability, hard work and self-improvement are all in the stars. Learning something new about your past will help you understand where you've been making a mistake. It's time to look honestly at your personal situation. 2 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Your aggressive, productive and self-starting approach to both your personal and professional lives will send a signal to friends and enemies alike. Don't stop until you reach your goals. Now is not the time to rest nor to let someone get away with something. 5 stars Birthday Baby: You are sensitive and emotional and you change your mind based on your feelings. You are enthusiastic, original and play to win.

FROM PAGE 1 “They’re not trying to hold up the district in any way,” Elder said. “They’re just trying to hold on to what they have.” A strike by the drivers could have dire effects to users of the main public transportation system in the Santa Barbara area. MTD provides almost 8 million passenger trips per year from Carpinteria to Winchester Canyon. MTD and the mediator are set to meet again March 1, but if that meeting fails to produce any results, drivers and mechanics are authorized to strike. The sticking point has been health benefits and the retirement age. Citing the state of the economy, MTD’s contract required workers to stay on until 65 before being eligible for full retirement benefits instead of 62. Both sides are hoping there won’t be a need for a strike. MTD officials said they could not comment on specifics of the negotiations, but reiterated that they were committed to the mediation process. “We’re trying to get some results,” MTD Chairman Dave Davis said. Doug Large, attorney for MTD, said that the

organization is committed to its talks with the union. “MTD is working in good faith with a state mediator in the hopes of avoiding an impasse in negotiations to reach a new contract with the Teamsters,” Large said. MTD has also said that supervisors in August reached a deal with the district. Elder said it’s unusual for the two groups to vote differently, but not unheard of. He doesn’t know what the reasoning was, but noted that neither vote got unanimous support. There’s still a chance the March meeting could be successful, but if isn’t, Elder’s not sure much can be done to avoid a strike. “If there’s no change after March 1, then my hands are pretty well tied,” Elder said.
