Montecito OKs smaller Miramar SEE STORY BY JOSHUA MOLINA, PAGE 4
INSIDE Man stabbed repeatedly

The wait to restore Montecito’s iconic Miramar Hotel may soon be over. The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors will vote on a scaled-back version of the project at its March 15 meeting Developer Rick Caruso this week announced that he was reducing the hotel size down from 192 to 186 rooms, eliminating one level of underground parking, moving a separate ballroom into the main building and reducing the size of the project by about 100,000 square feet.
The Montecito Planning Commission has given its blessing to the revised proposal, paving the way for the supervisors to decide the fate of the historic — and embattled — hotel. “Not withstanding any major fatal flaw, I think it is just a matter of making sure the project moving forward is keeping within all the standards and policies that this community has worked to put in place and aspire to have,” said First District Supervisor Salud Carbajal. “I anticipate being able to come up with a win-win on this matter.” The Miramar has long been one of the See MIRAMAR, page 12

A 47-year-old man was stabbed multiple times and two men were severely beaten in two separate attacks late Wednesday night. In the first attack, Santa Barbara police officers found a man bleeding from several stab wounds, on the front porch of a house on the 1200 block of East Yanonali St. The man walked to the front door of the housing to ask for help. He told police that he was on the 100 block of North Soledad Street when a light-colored car drove past him. A man in the vehicles asked him where he was

from. The victim told the man in the car that he was from “no where.” Two people then got out of the car and chased the victim into a park. The suspects chased him toward the bathrooms, when one of them allegedly shouted a gang slogan before stabbing the victim several times. The suspects then left in the vehicle. In the second instance, authorities found two men who had been severely beaten near the corner of State and Haley streets. The victims told police that they were walking on State Street when three large men approached them and demanded See STABBING, page 12
SB’s hottest new show debuts
DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT “On Duty with Santa Barbara Firefighters” debuts at 7 p.m. tomorrow night. The show spotlights firefighters from the city and the county in action. About 150 people last night viewed the first two episodes at private screening at Woody’s Roundup at Earl Warren Showgrounds. Ira and Linda Distenfield are producing the show. They have modeled it after “On Patrol,” a reality show about the Santa Barbara Police Department. The Distenfields believe the new show is even more unique because few reality shows follow firefighters. The show will focus on firefighters battling fires, but also firefighters in
training and the department’s public outreach efforts. “Our goal is not only entertain people but to show them what firefighters do every day — to go on calls, to see what firefighters do, to get to know them,” Linda Distenfield said. In the first episodes, viewers will see firefighters battling house and car fires. All of the footage was filmed within the last three months. The show broadcasts on Fox 11 and repeats at 6:30 p.m. on KCOY on Sundays, before “60 Minutes.” The show will also air at 10 p.m. on Fridays on COX communications. “We are excited to take everyone on a ride along with the fire department,” Distenfield said.

City faces suit over sewage

A cold winter storm will impact our area in a big way over the next couple of days, with the cold front first bringing us moderate to heavy rain and gusty winds by this afternoon. Behind the front, a chance for showers will persist into tomorrow, and snow could even fall at the 500 to 1,000 foot level.

NEWS IN BRIEF
Lien on me: IRS eases rules
In a rare show of leniency, the Internal Revenue Service on Thursday announced new rules designed to make it easier for people struggling with tax debts to climb out of the hole. Among the changes, the IRS said it would place fewer claims on taxpayers' property and would make such "liens" less damaging to taxpayers' credit ratings. Other changes are intended to help small businesses and forgive debts of more people who are unable to pay. Commissioner Doug Shulman called the changes an effort to "stand in taxpayers' shoes" following "the worst recession in a generation." "This is a real effort to consider taxpayers' needs," said Benson Goldstein, a tax expert with the American Institute of CPAs.
Police out to find Democrats
A leading environmental organization plans to file a lawsuit against the city of Santa Barbara over the city’s pattern of sewage spills dating back several years. The Santa Barbara Channelkeeper on Thursday served the city with a notice that intends to file the lawsuit, claiming that the city has violated the federal Clean Water Act. “In a world-class beachside town like Santa Barbara, where residents and tourists alike place a high premium on clean water, this patter of sewage spills is unacceptable,” said Kira Redmond, executive director of the Channelkeeper. Santa Barbara has the highest spill rate among similar-sized sewage systems of any community between Santa Cruz and Thousand Oaks, according to public records. The city has had at least 171 spills in the last five years. In 2009, the city’s spill rate was triple the California average. “The sewage pipes are old,” Redmond said. “They are decaying. The city is not devoting enough resources to fix the problems.”
Some Santa Barbara officials felt blindsided by the Channelkeeper’s actions. “The city is both surprised and disappointed by this action,” said Water Resources Manager Rebecca Bjork. Bjork in a prepared statement said that the city has taken “aggressive action to reduce sewage spills.” Three spills in the last six months were “relatively small,” Bjork said, and none made it into the ocean. Bjork said that the city has reduced spills by more effective cleaning of sewer mains and that the city is on course to becoming one of the best systems in the state. The city in its formal response said the Channelkeeper’s actions will only cost taxpayers more money. “We are disappointed that valuable rate payer money will now be diverted to pay attorneys fees for a group seeking to compel us to do what we have already committed to doing.” Santa Barbara has long struggled with sewage spills. Most of the city’s pipe system was built between 1900 and 1960.
When pipes crack or leak, the sewage spill into the groundwater, creeks and ultimately into the ocean. Santa Barbara currently has committed to replacing 1 See SEWAGE, page 12

Final Performances This Weekend!
Wisconsin Republicans dispatched police to the homes of absent Democratic senators on Thursday to try to round them up for a vote on a plan to strip public sector unions of most collective bargaining rights. While the search failed to find the Democrats, it raised the stakes as Gov. Scott Walker's self-imposed deadline of Friday for approving the proposal neared. Wisconsin has become ground zero in a national struggle over labor unions power, and union members from all over the country have converged on the state to protest the proposal. All 14 Democrats in the Senate fled to Illinois last week to deny Republicans a quorum and a vote on the bill. Republicans hold a 19 to 14 majority but need a quorum of 20 to vote on spending bills. The Democrats fled because they feared they could be compelled to attend if they remained.
Discovery takes final flight
Space shuttle Discovery blasted off for the last time Thursday, carrying six astronauts and carting a load of supplies, spare parts and a robot for the International Space Station. The shuttle lifted off at 4:53 p.m. EST from the Kennedy Space Center, riding a flame-tipped pillar of smoke across the Atlantic Ocean as it soared through partly cloudy skies toward space. The launch was delayed three minutes due to a glitch with a range safety computer minutes before the scheduled 4:50 p.m. EST liftoff. The problem was resolved with seconds to spare. "This was one for the record books," said launch director Mike Leinbach.

Talk to someone you trust to guide you in the most suitable direction. 4 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Don't let your emotions interfere with what needs to be done or said. If you take what's going on personally, you will not stand a chance of getting what you want. Be open-minded and adaptable. 2 stars Birthday Baby: You are eager to follow your own path and to achieve the goals you set for yourself. You are sentimental and aggressive.
can go two ways today: the know-it-all way or the interest-in-learning-more scenario. It's your future and the choice you make will influence your personal and professional status. Keep things simple. 3 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You'll be in a partying mood but, even so, you must avoid overindulgence. Your best bet is to do something that improves or updates your lifestyle, looks or knowledge. Different cultural traditions and ways of doing things will help you make the right choice. 5 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You'll be drawn to unusual people who can offer you an insightful view into people, activities and skills that are foreign to you. What you learn from others will lead to an interesting union or partnership that can turn into a profitable enterprise. 2 stars LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Watch your back. Not everyone is on your side. Don't overreact or you will be open for criticism. Keep your thoughts to yourself and keep close tabs on what so-called friends and acquaintances are doing and saying. 4 stars SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You can work from home and accomplish personal and professional goals.

“ON THE MOVE” by Lucas Whetstone
CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Justin Berfeld, 25; Chelsea Handler, 36; Sean Astin, 40; Tea Leoni, 45 Happy Birthday: Proceed with caution. Do not act on impulse or hearsay. Creating opportunities by incorporating old ideas with new ones will turn out well and bring you long overdue recognition. Your no-nonsense way of explaining how you want things done will make a difference when it comes to your success. Your numbers are 3, 13, 16, 24, 35, 41, 46 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Keep your secrets locked up tight. Being too open about personal matters will lead to rumors that can hurt your reputation. Instead, put the emphasis on others, showing interest in whatever pursuits they are tackling. An opportunity will arise. 5 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): A sudden and unexpected turn of events will ignite your personal and romantic lives. Be ready to follow through so you don't miss out on what's being offered. Your knowledge and offer of time and services will put you in the limelight. 3 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): This is no time to take chances with your reputation. Expect emotional matters to lead to a confrontation if you have taken matters into your own hands without sufficient knowledge or understanding. 3 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): You

With hotel rooms on the sand, two swimming pools and historic rail car on the property, the Miramar was once the most sought-after place to stay on the South Coast. Billionaire real estate developer Ian Schrager, founder of the famed New York nightclub Studio 54, bought the

In recent years the city has also offered incentives, including rebates, for homeowners who replace their sewer laterals, which connect to the city’s sewer mains. The city’s beaches are sometimes closed because of sewage spills and unhealthful conditions. Redmond said the city has made “token” efforts to fix the sewage problems, but has not made the necessary “comprehensive reforms.”

Police said that the suspect threw a plastic case for the cell phone into the bushes. He also had a battery to the phone in his pocket.

hotel from the Gawzner family in 1998. Schrager closed the hotel in 2000 to bring the hotel up to modern standards. But the hotel would never open its doors to guests again. A lack of financing for the renovation forced Schrager to sell the hotel to another billionaire, Beanie Babies mogul Ty Warner. Warner sold the hotel to Caruso Affiliated in 2007. All of the owners have been unable to secure financing to rebuild the hotel. Now, the once classic resort is a community eyesore. A chain-link fence sur-
rounds the hotel. Plywood boards cover the windows. And the deep blue tile roofs are in shambles. Caruso Affiliated, however, believes that a new day has come. “We were pleased with the outcome of our hearing before the Montecito Planning Commission,” said Matt Middlebrook, senior vice president of Development for Caruso Affiliated. “We believe our revised plan is a better plan and the commission agreed. We now look forward to presenting the plan to the Board of Supervisors in two weeks.”
The notice of intent to sue allows the city 60 days to come into compliance with the Clean Water Act. “The ultimate end goal is to bring the high number of sewage spills down to zero,” Redmond said. “If the city wants to spend money on attorneys instead of engineers that is their choice.” Channelkeeper officials want the city to perform an assessment of its sewage system and identify the amount of money it would take to fix the problem. “The city is in violation of federal law and Channelkeeper is filing this legal action as a last resort to ensure that the sewage system gets fixed and the spills stop,” said board president Sherry
Madsen. “We hope the legal issues are resolved quickly and city staff and engineers are rapidly deployed to jumpstart the kind of comprehensive and proactive program needed to upgrade the city’s sewer system.” Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider said she will do what she can bring a positive resolution to the situation – without going to court. “I know our city staff is taking this very seriously,” Schneider said. “Everyone wants the same thing. We all want to reduce sewage spills. The challenge is how do we get there with the funding we have available.”
