School Board gets creative to avoid layoffs BY JOSHUA MOLINA DAILY SOUND EDITOR

Despite facing tough economic times, the city of Santa Barbara is moving ahead with several big ticket community restoration projects.

It was a bad night for Santa Barbara schools. But it could have been much worse. The Santa Barbara School Districts Board of Education voted last night to eliminate 10 days from the school year – five of them classroom time – to save about $4.1 million.
The Board only needs to find $6 million more to close a projected shortfall of $10 million for next fiscal year. “I don’t want to cut $10 million, but it is going to have to come from somewhere,” said Board member Kate Parker. The reduction in school days means the district would add 15 minutes of class time to the day and

teachers would take a 5.4 percent pay cut. The school board put off making more serious cuts, including laying off teachers – which would increase Kindergarten-3rd-grade class sizes from 25 to 30 students. Also on the table is cutting high school counselors, librarians, and school programs such as Mock Trial and Leadership.
“As an educator, these are tough cuts,” said board member Monique Limon. “We all realize this will impact the quality of education in the classroom.” Instead, the school board is banking on its proposal to unify the elementary and secondary districts to save $6 million.

In front of a crowd of shocked onlookers, a 44-year-old Santa Barbara man jumped to his death yesterday afternoon from the Santa Barbara County Courthouse clock tower. Tourists, Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputies and other observers in the busy area saw the man jump 85 feet from the tower to the ground. He landed on the grass facing Anacapa Street. Bystanders attempted to revive him, but he was pronounced dead on the scene. A team of sheriff’s deputies, firefighters and police officers attempted responded quickly to the scene of the suicide. “He leaped to his death,” said Santa Barbara Police Lt. Paul McCaffrey. Authorities said that three tourists in the clock tower saw the man climb over the railing and stand on a narrow edge facing Anacapa Street. The tourists called police for help. Sheriff’s deputies in the area then raced up the stairs to save the man. Other deputies ran to the grass area, telling bystanders to move from the area where the man was standing. The man landed next to the stone pathway that leads to the Courthouse arch. The dramatic scene stunned many people who were having lunch in the area and enjoying the afternoon in the sun. Lt. McCaffrey said the man did not leave behind a suicide note. Authorities do not know why he jumped. He was carrying identification on him. The Santa Barbara County Coroner is attempting to confirm his identity and notify the next of kin.
As oil muddies outlook, Fed policy less certain
WASHINGTON (Reuters) — Surging oil prices are deepening a split inside the Federal Reserve, blurring the likely direction of monetary policy and making next week's policy meeting all the more contentious. The sharp rise in energy costs, precipitated by a wave of pro-democracy uprisings across the Arab world, could affect the economy in different ways, by retarding growth, boosting inflation or, in the

worst case, both. This complicates the terrain for policymakers, hardening longheld positions ahead of the Fed's March 15 gathering. "The meeting has definitely gotten more interesting for the participants than they'd like," said Mitch Stapley, chief fixed-income officer at Fifth Third Asset Management. "The stakes are rising," he said. "The nightmare scenario is some kind of
stagflation outcome. That's some ways down the road but you begin to see that discussion emerge." At the heart of the debate is the concept of economic slack, an attempt to measure the gap between current levels of activity and the economy's full potential.

Tardy kids get wake up call
Chronically tardy and truant high school students in Fall River, Massachusetts may think they're having a nightmare when they are aroused at sunrise on Wednesday by their principal's voice. “It's 6:15 and it's Durfee High School calling,” booms the voice of Principal Paul Marshall of B.M.C. Durfee High School in a prerecorded call set to ring through to about 500 of the school's 2,400 students, Vice Principal Ross Thibault said on Tuesday. The so-called “robo-calls” are aimed at rousting the worstoffending sleepyheads from bed and getting them to school on time. Robo-calls are typically used to notify parents of weather-related school delays and cancellations. Durfee joins the ranks of U.S. schools taking on the added role of alarm clock to combat high rates of tardiness and absenteeism, including New Bedford, Massachusetts and Chicago, Thibault said. In New York City, the wake-up calls feature the voice of former professional basketball star Magic Johnson.
Man allegedly gropes girl, sparks fight at Wildcat CRIME BLOTTER
March 6, 5:45 p.m: Officers arrested a 54-year-old woman for scratching her partner with a coat hanger. Police responded to a domestic disturbance call on the 1200 block of Alta Vista Road. The woman allegedly attacked the man with a coat hanger and then kicked him in the groin. When police arrived, the man had a bloody cut on his face and a broken coat hanger with blood on it was at the scene. The woman said, “nothing happened.” She was arrested for domestic violence and booked into county jail on $30,000 bail.
March 3, 1:37 a.m: Officers arrested a man for assaulting bouncers at the Wildcat Lounge. A 27-year-old man allegedly saw another man grab his girlfriend’s buttocks in the Wildcat club. He began punching the man. When security guards tried to break it up, the man hit a bouncer several times, breaking the bouncer’s nail and making his finger bleed. Police arrested him for battery and booked him into county jail on $2,500 bail.’
March 2, 5:05 p.m: Police caught a woman with drug paraphernalia in her purse and bra. While at the Westside Boys and Girls Club, officers spotted a woman with felony warrants. A search of her purse turned up syringe parts, a metal marijuana pipe and a glass pipe Inside her bra, they found a morphine The “three-year glitch” has replaced the “seven-year itch” as pill, and a bag with 0.2 grams of marijuathe tipping point where couples start to take each other for na. granted, according to a new survey. Weight gain, stinginess, toe-nail clippings on the bathroom floor and snoring are a few of the passion-killers that have led to a swifter decline in relationships in the fast-paced 21st century, said the study commissioned by Warner Brothers to promote the release of comedy film “Hall Pass” in UK cinemas. The survey of 2,000 British adults in steady relationships pinpointed the 36-month marker as the time when relationship stress levels peak and points to a new trend of “pink passes” and “solo” holidays away from partners and spouses that many Britons resort to in order to keep romance alive. “Longer working hours combined with money worries are clearly taking their toll on modern relationships and we are seeing an increasing trend for solo holidays and weekends away from marriages and relationships in order to revive the romantic spark,” said pollster Judi James who oversaw the survey.

Sheen outranks Obama, Gaga
If you think Charlie Sheen has been “winning” media attention these past few weeks, you'd be right. The now former “Two and A Half Men” star has topped all Internet and social media discussions since the beginning of 2011, beating out buzz and controversy surrounding the iPad, singer Lady Gaga and U.S. President Barack Obama, according to a survey released on Tuesday by the Global Language Monitor. “Charlie Sheen...is everywhere. The growing pervasiveness of social media only enhances this global echo chamber,” said Paul JJ Payack, president and chief word analyst for the Global Language Monitor.
When questioned, the 25-year old woman claimed it was an old bra and she didn’t know there was anything in there. She was arrested for possession of paraphernalia and booked into county jail without bail due to the outstanding warrants.
March 2, 3:45 p.m: Police arrested a man prowling outside a family home. A witness heard footsteps on a rooftop in the 700 block of West Sola and said a man tried to enter the second window where a woman was showering. The woman left the shower and hid with the rest of the family in the bedroom. When officers arrived, they heard something moving in the bushes next door. When they went to investigate, a man bolted from the front yard to the side of the building. Police set up a perimeter and summoned a K-9 unit. The man ran from the K-9 unit and an officer used a high voltage stun gun, but it did not take the man down. The K-9 unit caught up with the man and apprehended him. The 21-year-old man refused to answer questions. A search found three “Slap Tags”—stickers used for graffiti— in the man’s pants. He was arrested for prowling, resisting arrest, and possession of graffiti tools and booked into county jail without bail due to a probation violation. March 2, 12:15 a.m: Officers arrested a parolee for threatening to kill his
girlfriend and her son. Officers responded to a report of a domestic disturbance in the 500 block of West Victoria Street.

He then shoved her into a fence and then knocked her to the ground. The woman fled into her house. The man then allegedly called her up and said, “I’m going to kill you and your son.” While officers were talking to the woman, the man called her cell phone. She put it on speaker and the man confirmed he had threatened her earlier. He was arrested for domestic violence, making criminal threats, and booked into county jail without bail for parole violation.

They were charged with trying to start a fight with a gang enhancement and booked into county jail on $100,000 bail.

Despite economy, city moves on with restoration projects
DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli
Marina One is currently in the middle of a ten phase restoration plan that began in 2007 but was halted due to the poor economy.
BY NICK C. TONKIN
DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT
Despite facing tough economic times, the city of Santa Barbara is moving ahead with several big ticket community restoration projects. Work is underway to upgrade the aging Marina One in the Santa Barbara Harbor. The marina project is among many of the environmental, infrastructure, and recreational works projects underway, said Assistant Public Works Director Pat Kelly. The Santa Barbara City Council discussed the capital projects at Tuesday's meeting. “In the city of Santa Barbara, our team is doing excelsior work and producing for the people in Santa Barbara hundreds
of millions of dollars of return on our investment,” said councilman Grant House. The first phase of the Marina One replacement project finished off with a final cost of $2.1 million. It included a new headwalk, gangway, and shore-side electrical upgrades. Additional phases are underway with construction cost estimates at $4.6 million. Built in the 1970s, Marina One has sixteen “fingers” that allow 500 vessels to moor in the harbor. An extension in 1998 added two more fingers allowing space for another 100 slips. An engineering assessment several years ago determined that the original structure and fingers needed to be replaced. Staff developed a ten phase restoration plan in 2007
but the ensuing economic crisis delayed the start of the project. With the central part complete, each additional phase start upgrades on the outermost fingers and works its way inwards with each phase. Another critical, though less visible, project finished. The Water Main Replacement project fixed 2.25 miles of the city’s 300-mile underground waterline for $2 million. Two other big ticket projects finished. The West Cabrillo Pedestrian Improvements put in new crosswalks and artwork to make foot traffic between Stearns Wharf and the Harbor more accessible. The cost came in at $2.8 million.

DEAR EDITOR: So why won't Wisconsin Gov. Walker accept the ample concessions that state unions have offered? Because this battle isn't really about budget deficits-it's about union busting. Like Republicans politicians in Ohio and Indiana, Walker wants to crush unions so they're “no longer able to raise money to oppose him, as they did in last year's election.” Curiously, the two public unions Walker has conspicuously exempted-police and firefighters-both backed his campaign last year. This isn't about cost, it's about “power.” While Walker is demanding savings from state employees and the low- income citizens who rely on public services, he's also advocating a cut in corporate taxes-which will increase the state's deficit-and proposing no-bid sales of government assets. Public employees aren't responsible for the huge deficits in state budgets. And any politically sustainable resolution will require broadly shared sacrifice. “They will never be public acceptance” if political opponents carry the brunt of the load
while political favorites are spared. “Gov. Walker's program fails that test.” Leoncio Martins Santa Barbara
DEAR EDITOR: I wish I could agree with Randy Alcorn’s column (“The larger leech on the economy,” Daily Sound, March 8) that the Great Recession might have some positive impact on the governmental wish to take ALL of our money. One just has to look here at home to see the Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors doling out raises for 2011 with money they do not even have a prayer of finding. Two plus two no longer equals four in this out of control economic society we now live in. When it comes to spending our money, as my Granny used to say “Common sense is anything but common.” All politicians seem to become infected with OPM disease immediately upon beingelected to office (other peoples money), and there is evidently no cure! Do I sound like someone marching and shouting “No taxation without representation?” Not yet, but maybe soon. Bud Stuart Santa Barbara
Local firm lets iPhone users test apps before they buy BY RAY ESTRADA
DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT
A Santa Barbara company called New Leaders has released a new version of Sound Stage for Mac, a desktop application that makes video demonstrations of iPhone and Mac desktop applications. This means iPhone users can try out an “app” before having to buy it, New Leaders officials said. “Today, Sound Stage 1.3 is going to live up to their expectations by introducing the newest version that incorporates these features.” said Kevin Milden, cofounder of New Leaders. “How many times have you purchased an app merely on its image and winding up not enjoying it?,” company officials asked in a news release. “With the introduction of Sound Stage, New Leaders hopes to help curb, ‘Whoops, I bought it!’ syndrome that plagues many of our credit card statements.”

The School Board has backed the proposal, which must go before the California Board of Education in the next few months. The debate over the future of the school district has sparked passionate emotions on all sides. Teachers, nurses, counselors – even students, have peppered the school board members with emails and phone calls all calling on the board to spare them. “One of the reasons I love San Marcos
FROM PAGE 2 Chairman Ben Bernanke, firmly believes broad price pressures are highly unlikely to overtake an economy plagued by high unemployment and meager wage gains. A vocal minority of inflation hawks, however, are skeptical that the so-called output gap is a good determinant of U.S. inflation. If the monetary authorities wait for the country's 8.9 percent jobless rate to fall to more desirable levels, they say, it will already be too late. This camp points to the Fed's massive expansion of credit to the banking system, including zero interest rates and
Sound Stage helps developers provide complex support documentation, share iterative concepts and explain their product in a more clear and straightforward way, company officials said. The app’s first version was released opening day of the Mac App Store in January. Since its release thousands of customers have downloaded the new app. “Since Sound Stage’s launch we’ve had the opportunity to hear from hundreds of customers,” New Leaders said. “Above all else, they want lossless recording quality, low processing time and the ability to record not only the iPhone Simulator, but their full desktop. New Leaders is lowering the barrier to entry by bringing down the introductory price of Sound Stage 1.3 to $4.99, Milden said. is because of these extra programs,” said Isaac Wright, a junior at San Marcos fighting to keep Mock Trial. “The one thing that makes our school a place where we want to go is programs. I strongly urge the board not to cut these programs.” David Holmes, director for San Marcos High Schools Performing Arts program, called on the board to make cuts to the administrative office. “It seems to me that the cuts are heavy on your professionals in the classroom,” Holmes said. “When you offer administrative office cuts that total $40,000, it’s embarrassing. It’s insulting.” The board has already cut about $20 million in the last four years. “I don’t know how long we can keep
$2.3 trillion in government and mortgage bond purchases to prop up credit markets hit by the worst financial crisis in generations. The purchases have more than tripled the central bank's balance sheet and Philadelphia Fed President Charles Plosser calls it the "kindling" of future inflation. In next Tuesday's policy statement, the Fed will likely manage this dissonance by acknowledging a recent pick up in energy costs but also reiterate that inflation expectations remain well anchored. At this point, most analysts see the Fed completing its current $600 billion bond purchase program and calling it a
Existing customers can download the new version a no additional cost. “We are already under way on our next app to add to our lineup of Mac software products,” Milden said. “While there are a number of screen casting recording utilities available for the Mac, we aim to make Sound Stage the go-to application for recording.” To accomplish that, he said, New Leaders needs to bring down the price point as low as possible to encourage users to give it a try. During the next few months, New Leaders will introduce even more features that allow different types of recording.” said Sound Stage’s creator Raffaello Colasante. Sound Stage will require the user to have Mac OS X 10.6 pre-installed with the Mac App Store. Developer tools and iOS SDK should also be installed to take advantage of iPhone App video recording.
it all going with less and less,” Holmes said. For now, the district is content. In addition to the money from the unification process, the board is hopeful that Gov. Brown’s education proposals for the state budget would help close the gap. Brown is pushing a series of ballot initiatives. If approved, could bring in about $4.5 million to the district. The proposals, however, are still tied up in the legislature. If both the unification and the ballot measures fail, the school board will be forced to make even more drastic cuts. “We will be back real soon if that doesn’t work out,” said board member Ed Heron.
day, even if the situation in the Middle East has widened the range of possible outcomes.
THE PSYCHOLOGY OF ECONOMICS Unlike the European Central Bank, which recently hinted it could raise rates as early as next month, few believe Fed tightening is imminent. "We still assume no interest rate hike until 2012," said Nigel Gault, chief U.S. economist at IHS Global Insight in Lexington, Massachusetts. "The Fed is not the ECB. It will not raise interest rates just because headline inflation is rising."
