No injuries were reported during the incident, although county officials noted that some property damage had occurred in the public defender’s office. “I think they had to rip out some carpeting and there’s a lot of the ceiling tiles that were pulled down,” said William Boyer, spokesman for Santa Barbara County. Attorneys and office staff relocated to temporary digs across the street in the county administration building and are expected to stay there through the end of the week as crews repair the damage.

Former Santa Barbara Mayor Harriet Miller, a strong force in local political circles for decades, died yesterday at her home. She was 90. Friends and colleagues described her as the essence of a strong, hands-on mayor. She is remembered for her tenacious and direct approach on the dais, where she sat as a council member from 1987 to 1995 and as mayor from 1995 to 2001. “Harriet was probably the best mayor this city has ever had,” former council member Dan Secord said. “She knew what was going on, she was extremely bright, and she had a lot of personal

power and personal directness that people really liked.” From her fervent efforts to win approval for the skate park at Chase Palm Park to her strong support of the Granada Theatre restoration project in recent years, Miller’s dedication to public service and lasting impact on the community is evident throughout Santa Barbara. “If you look around our city, her legacy is everywhere,” said Mayor-elect Helene Schneider. “She has definitely left her mark in a good way.

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

The first would require relocating the storage yard where the dredge equipment is located as well as the storage units (known as the “Seashell condos”) used by the Santa Barbara Seashell Association to store their boats. It would also require upgrading the appearance of the outrigger storage area. The second phase would include the building of an outrigger Hale See BEACH, page 2

As county officials assessed damage to the Santa Barbara County Courthouse caused Tuesday by a small electrical fire, fire investigators had yet to pin down the exact cause of the blaze yesterday. Smoke started filling the third-floor public defender’s office just before 5 p.m. Tuesday, and fire officials quickly called in extra resources because of the historical and cultural significance of the landmark building. Using thermal imaging cameras, firefighters located the source of the smoke in an electrical and mechanical room above the offices. Authorities described the blaze as an electrical fire, but have released no additional details about its cause.

In April of 2008, two years after it debuted on newsstands on the South Coast, The Daily Sound launched home delivery to several hundred homes. After putting the paper to bed at 11:30 p.m. Publisher Jeramy Gordon and General Manager John Leonard started rolling bags of newspapers that were hot off the presses. At 2 a.m. they drove around town tossing papers on porches. The bold move to go from coffee shops and news racks was a calculated risk, but not the first for Gordon, who started the paper in Santa Barbara at the age of 23 in March of 2006. The former managing editor of the Palo Alto Daily News seemingly parachuted out of nowhere into Santa Barbara to challenge the local daily and the Independent. No one knew the paper was coming.

March 19, 5:15 a.m: Officers arrested a woman for scratching and threatening her live-in boyfriend with a knife. Officers were called to Cottage Hospital where a man was being treated for scratches on his upper and lower body. The man told police that his 18-yearold girlfriend came home at 3 a.m. and they got into an argument about bed positions. The girlfriend got on top of him and got angry when he pushed her off. She allegedly scratched him, then got a knife and threatened him. The man told the police she’d attacked him the week before which also required hospital treatment. When questioned, the woman admitted to scratching the man, but claimed he had slapped and choked her. Police didn’t see any visible injuries consistent with her story and arrested her for spousal battery.
March 21, 9:57 a.m: Police arrested a mentally ill man after he allegedly smashed a newsstand with his skateboard and threw bricks at cars. Officers responded to a report of a man hitting a newspaper stand with a skateboard near the intersection of Cliff Drive and Meigs Road. A witness told police the man had hit the newsstand and then walked up the road, picked up a brick and threw it at a passing car. Officers found the 25-year-old man at the corner of Cliff Drive and Camino Calma Street. The man shouted “You’re a lesbian,” at one of the officers as they approached.

March 17, 3:00 p.m: An officer detained a parolee involved in a fraud scam. While on the 1st block of East Valerio Street, an officer recognized a parolee that had failed to check in with his parole officers. The officer stopped the man who initially refused to cooperate. After a struggle the 54-year-old man was arrested and found to have a forged check for $3,000. Detectives questioned about another fraud scam. The man allegedly solicited $2,000 from an acquaintance, telling the man it was for a movie investment. Using a fake e-mail, the man conned the victim into thinking he was a friend of Robert Zemeckis who was also interested in investing in his film. The man admitted that he used the money for personal expenses and there was no movie nor did he know Robert Zemeckis. March 18, 4:05 a.m: Police arrested a 48-year-old man for multiple property hit and runs along State Street. A man was allegedly involved in three hit and run collisions over several blocks.

NEWS IN BRIEF
Support for nuclear power slips
U.S. public support for expanding nuclear power appears to be slipping after Japan's nuclear crisis while New York's governor said on Tuesday an aging plant near New York City will be the top priority in a federal review of earthquake risk to such facilities. President Barack Obama last year announced loan guarantees to build the first U.S. nuclear power plant in nearly three decades. But the nuclear disaster triggered by Japan's 9.0 magnitude earthquake may be making Americans less inclined to embrace more nuclear energy due to safety fears. In a poll released on Monday by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, 52 percent of 1,004 U.S. adults surveyed from March 17-20 said they oppose the expansion of nuclear power now, up from 47 percent last October.
Detroit: Modern day ghost town
Detroit's population dropped 25 percent over the last decade to its lowest level in a century, according to Census figures released on Tuesday. The city's population fell to 713,777 last year from 951,270 in 2000 when the last census was taken as the region suffered from a struggling automotive industry, plant closures and job losses. In the same period, the state of Michigan's population dropped 0.6 percent to 9.88 million. Detroit's 2010 population compares to 1.85 million people living in the "Motor City" in 1950 and was the lowest total since the 1910 Census showed a population of 285,704. Even before news of the steep population loss, Detroit's shaky finances were a major concern in the $2.9 trillion municipal bond market, where the city's bonds are rated in the junk category. The city was cited in a recent Reuters poll as a potential candidate for rarely used municipal bankruptcy.
Capitalism ended life on Mars?
Capitalism may be to blame for the lack of life on the planet Mars, Venezuela's socialist President Hugo Chavez said on Tuesday. "I have always said, heard, that it would not be strange that there had been civilization on Mars, but maybe capitalism arrived there, imperialism arrived and finished off the planet," Chavez said in speech to mark World Water Day. Chavez, who also holds capitalism responsible for many of the world's problems, warned that water supplies on Earth were drying up. "Careful! Here on planet Earth where hundreds of years ago or less there were great forests, now there are deserts. Where there were rivers, there are deserts," Chavez said, sipping from a glass of water.

The Santa Barbara School Districts Board of Education heard the first student survey results from Honors students since the program merged with Gifted And Talented Education. A year ago, the board made a controversial decision to merge the GATE and Honors program. While many believed it would allow students that don’t test well to receive better education, some felt it would water down the previous GATE classes which were seen as being more advanced than Honors. The survey prepared by Davis C. Hayden, Director of Research and Sandy Robertson, Secondary District GATE coordinator, is the first since the merging. It surveyed the demographics of students involved in the Honors program, as well as their feelings about classes, and influences in joining. The statistics were taken from groups of 7th and 9th graders throughout the district. Caucasian students appeared to have the greatest number responding, with almost 55 percent. Hayden cautioned that the number may not reflect reality as new federal tracking guidelines may have caused some Latino students to register in the Caucasian and multiracial categories. The survey showed 16 percent of respondents as Latino, but Robertson estimated that the number was closer to 22. This caused some consternation among the board members as closing disparities between ethnicities had been the primary goals of merging the two pro-

grams. “We want to be sure classes are reaching a broad spectrum and including students that are traditionally underrepresented,” Board President Annette Cordero said. Ed Heron also expressed some frustration with the numbers. “We have a goal for what these numbers might be used for,” Heron said. “But garbage in, garbage out.” Hayden said he didn’t really have an immediate fix but believed the district would have a better idea on the numbers as awareness of the new guidelines improved. Somewhat more encouraging was Hayden’s report that apart from number of responses, numbers within each category were the same for all ethnicities. Seventy percent of students identified themselves as GATE, while only 10 percent did not. Eight out of 10 percent of students said they were in classes because of test scores or grades, the most common way of entering the classes. Lower numbers existed for requests from The study also tracked influences on student enrollment. Many students reported multiple sources for encourage-
ment 61 percent said they were urged to sign up by their parent or guardian. Forty-two percent said a teacher encouraged them. Twenty-five percent said a friend. Nearly 21 percent had a sibling. Seventeen percent had a counselor advise them, a concerning stat for counselors. Only 24 percent said they had no one encouraging them. The majority of students rated their overall Honors classes as excellent. Most students reported their classes were moderately challenging. However, science and math classes seemed more polarizing with greater numbers of students saying the classes were too challenging or not challenging enough than their English and Social Studies counterparts. Hayden and Robertson also gave a report on college prep students that scored higher than a 380 on the California Standards Test for English Language Arts or math categories—students that demonstrated a capacity for Honors classes but were not enrolled. Hayden noted that this study had a much smaller sample size. Looking at influences on enrolling in Honors classes parents scored higher for encouragement again, but counselors had some of the lowest scores. The breakdown in student reasons for not enrolling in Honors classes revealed one more concern. A plurality of students thought that they were not allowed to take Honors classes. Hayden said changing that number will be a priority for the program. “I’m hoping that when we do this again that will change considerably,” Hayden said. “I hope it will be zero.”

The paper was also recognized for Local News Coverage for “Pedro Nava Faces Political Quandary,” written by Joshua Molina, a story about Nava’s struggle to decide whether to endorse Das Williams, the man who defeated Susan Jordan, Nava’s wife in last year’s June primary. The Awards Ceremony is April 16 in Los Angeles. — Daily Sound Staff
DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT The Santa Barbara City Council voted 4-3 Tuesday against allowing a homeowner to cut down a Coast Live Oak tree on his property. Peter Hornemann, who had appealed a denial of his request by the city staff and the street tree advisory commission, to the City Council, wasn’t in attendance for the appeal. He had Mayor Helene Schneider read a letter on his behalf.
It didn’t matter. The tree, 320 Cooper Road, is healthy, and with proper maintenance, could live a long time in the spot. Hornemann said the 30-year-old tree grew big and the branches started to hang over his neighbor’s yard. The tree’s root also began to threaten Horneman’s underground utilities, such as TV and electricity. He said the tree must go. Councilman Frank Hotchkiss was on
the homeowner’s side. “I am really hard-pressed to say removing this has any impact on neighborhood ambience,” Hotchkiss said. “I don’t think it is a big loss.” But Hotchkiss was overruled by a majority of council members. “I think there are legitimate options,” councilman Grant House said. “I think there are different options that could really enhance the beauty of this tree.”
City Council says tree must stay
FROM PAGE 1 expertise in solid waste competitive bidding. “This is a very complicated analysis,” Armstrong said. “It is not just as simple as ‘accept the county’s RFP.’ If we don’t do this right we are going to end up not doing the analysis that we need to do.” The contract would last for 10 years and be worth more than $80 million. If Marborg wins the city contract, it could end up with a monopoly on the South Coast. Allied is owned by Republic, the second-biggest trash hauler in the country. Marborg is a locally owned company that has given generously to local elected officials, nonprofit groups and schools. Elected officials also like Marborg because the company has helped local agencies meet state mandates for trash and recycling.
Marborg’s recycling and construction and debris facility on the Eastside has been instrumental in helping the city divert a majority of its trash from local landfills. Without the facility Santa Barbara would The consultant, HF&H Consultants, LLC. has offered its expertise on hundreds of contracts throughout the state.
City Finance Director Robert Samario agreed. “This is a firm that has helped cities receive good results,” Samario said. “It isn’t like we just pulled this firm out of the sky. This could have long term implications for the ratepayers. We only do this once every 10 years. It is really important that we do what’s best for the ratepayers.” Some members of the council said they weren’t necessarily against the idea of the consultant, but that they wanted to bring the costs down lower. If reviewing the county bid will help
the city lower costs, then it’s wise to wait, officials said. “I think we just want to make sure that we are doing this right,” said Santa Barbara mayor Helene Schneider. The council on Tuesday seemed headed toward approving the expenditure for the consultant. Councilman Grant House, in fact, made a motion to hire a consultant because “this is the time to measure twice and cut once,” he said. He said an outside consultant would bring an objective view to the process. “With the staff being down three fulltime equivalents, it is hard and almost insulting to ask the staff to work harder at this time. By the end of the meeting he had flipflopped, saying he wasn’t sure that the consultant had been vetted enough. He withdrew his motion and then suggested city staff do more to make the sure the consultant was the most qualified for the job.

DAILY SOUND FILE PHOTOS
Family, friends and staff of the Daily Sound, above, pose for a photo at publisher Jeramy Gordon’s mansion. Below, columnists from left, Leslie Dinaberg, John Dickson, Karen Lee-Stevens and Melanie Doctors.
FROM PAGE 2 Few expected it to survive. Five years later, The Daily Sound is still growing, and Gordon says, poised to explode in the coming years. “We really have our legs now and we're ready to run,” Gordon said. “There are big things on the horizon for both the Daily Sound and its readers, but most of all, I look forward to continue bringing the award-winning news coverage this community deserves.” Gordon has showed resiliency and a pugnacious spirit in keeping the paper going for five years. It debuted in a market already oversaturated by news and advertising and as other newspapers across the country were downsizing because of the availability of free news on the internet. Despite the state of the newspaper industry at the time, The Daily Sound got a boost from an unexpected turn of events in local media. Three months after The Daily Sound debuted, dozens of reporters and editors resigned from the News-Press in a highly publicized dispute between reporters and management over newsroom ethics. Some advertises also departed. Many people in the community turned to The Daily Sound to instantly become the paper of the record. For a start-up company still in its infancy, the pressure was a lot for Gordon, who knew that the paper could not grow as fast as some people wanted it to. With a small news reporting and advertising staff, the paper plodded on, providing regular news coverage of local government, features and business.
DAILY SOUND / Gary Lambert
Daily Sound Publisher Jeramy Gordon hard at work in the early years.
The biggest challenge for Gordon was trying to survive and grow a newspaper amid a down economy and tanking newspaper industry. In the past five years, the paper has bounced from as high as 36 pages to as small as eight. Today, on average, the paper publishes at 12 pages, most days in color. The paper debuted at five days a week, moved to six, and then scaled back down to five to cut costs. Gordon started home delivery to much fanfare, then dropped it when it no longer became economically viable. The paper has also met its share of legal See FIVE YEARS, next page

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE trouble in its first five years. Gordon altered the look of the mast head in 2007 because of legal concerns by the NewsPress that the paper too closely resembled the daily. A judge ordered Gordon to hand over photos taken of a crime scene by a Daily Sound photographer. The paper quite simply didn’t have the legal resources to

fight the demand. The paper and the Montecito Bank & Trust are currently working on a settlement plan over a loan the bank called in late last year. Still, Gordon said, the paper has endured and is moving in the right direction. “Running a business in the current economic climate is not fun,” Gordon said. “I have learned so much from the past three years of economic hell.” Gordon has made The Daily Sound’s survival his first priority. “Cut backs are never easy,” Gordon said. “And I had to make a lot of them over the past three years. I had to make lots of concessions — both in business and in my personal life — in order to survive the economic meltdown. It was exhausting to say the least.”

sensationalize or slant the news. The paper has won multiple journalism awards in its first five years and covSee PAPER, page 12

An opportunity for a move should be acted upon. 3 stars CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Don't reveal too much about what you are up to personally. If you are reconnecting with someone from your past, make sure this development isn't going to cause additional stress on your current personal situation. Resolve one set of circumstances before you decide to take on another. 4 stars AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Too much, too fast will end up costing you. Don't let emotional matters lead to deception and sorrow. Keep everything you do out in the open so you aren't blamed for hiding information that might incriminate you. 2 stars PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Make change based on what you see and hear, first hand. Don't be fooled by someone trying to push you in a direction that doesn't suit your needs. Anger will surface if you feel threatened or pushed by someone with whom you are in an emotional or financial partnership. 5 stars Birthday Baby: You are unpredictable and always ready for action. You show your emotions and are a master at the art of persuasion.

FROM PAGE 7 ered every major story, even with a small, young staff, along the way. “On the whole, I think the Daily Sound has done a good job of covering the community for the last five years,” said Craig Smith, Santa Barbara’s premier blogger and media pundit. “It's been there for all of the big stories, the fires, the gang stabbings as well as the more routine things like local government.” Smith said “the reporting has really been the strength of the paper throughout the five years of its existence.” Smith, who was once a columnist for The Daily Sound, said that the Daily Sound has filled a key role in the community for people wanting an alternative to the News-Press. “With so many newspaper readers turning away from the News-Press for philosophical reasons, the Daily Sound has filled an important gap,” Smith said. “For people who enjoy getting their daily news from the printed page, the Daily Sound is the only daily source for them. And even for those of us who prefer to get our local news from the Internet, the Daily Sound's website makes the major stories of the day available online for free.” As the paper continues to advance its business model, Gordon is increasingly looking to marry the www.thedailysound.com to the printed product. Although the printed newspaper still pays the bulk of the bills, Gordon said online advertising and content is an increasingly vital component. The focus on the web is paying off. Since
August of 2010, the paper’s monthly unique visitors to the Web site has grown by more than 50 percent. Because of web traffic growth in the last seven months, more people are reading The Daily Sound today than ever in its short history. The paper is also about to launch a mobile application for the iPhone. “The Daily Sound plays an immensely important role in Santa Barbara's media landscape,” Gordon said. “Journalism in our country is in a transition period, and for the readers sake, the more outlets the better. There is so much mis-information out there, it's important to have 'real' journalists who actually care about the truth on staff. We're here for one reason and one reason only: to print the truth.” California state Assemblyman Das Williams, who was on the Santa Barbara City Council when the paper debuted in 2006, said the paper has proven itself as essential to the community. “It’s vital to have daily news that intensely covers daily life, events and politics in Santa Barbara,” Williams said. “Often with the inside story, the Daily Sound delivers.” For Gordon, who has served on several local boards, in 2011 and beyond he hopes to continue play a strong role in the community. “I love working with non-profits and community organizations to help make this a better place to live,” he said. Still, the news comes first. “I am addicted to news,” Gordon said. “I love knowing what's going to be in the paper a day before everyone else and the rush you feel when you know you've scooped the competition on a good story.”
