Victory for MarBorg
Locally owned trash hauler wins support from county staff to pick up trash in the Eastern Goleta Valley
Fight shakes up Goleta Beach
MarBorg positioned itself as a community leader in recycling innovation. They also invested in the community by constructing a recycling center on Santa Barbara’s eastside.

In a major victory for the locally owned MarBorg Industries, the county of Santa Barbara is recommending that the hauler collect trash and recycling in the Eastern Goleta Valley. The $2 million contract for the County’s Zone 2 was previously owned by Allied Waste Services. MarBorg and Allied have been in a fierce battle over trash contracts in the last several months. MarBorg wrested Goleta from Allied last year, and now the county contract is within its grasp.
“The whole MarBorg team and all of its employees are really happy to receive the staff recommendation,” Mario Borgatello, the company’s president, told The Daily Sound. “We have worked very hard in this community for many decades. We feel that we have been very proactive and we definitely have been the leader in recycling innovations.” The county board of supervisors is expected to approve the contract at its Tuesday meeting. The new contract would begin on July 1. The county staff is also recommending that Waste Management
provide service in Lompoc and the Santa Ynez Valley. Allied also bid unsuccessfully for the North County contracts. Rates are expected to decrease by a minimum of 10 percent, according to county staff. The county staff said customers will see enhanced services such as: • Increased recycling and green waste collection at no additional cost • Curbside collection of batteries and electronic waste Provision of postage pre-paid containers for the collection of sharps (needles).

Foodbank prepares for Leadership Day NEWS

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT
A bank isn’t just a place where people drop off and pick up money. Likewise, the Foodbank isn’t just a place where people drop off and pick up food. That’s why for the last five years, the Foodbank has held Leadership Day, where community leaders are invited to come in and see all the programs the bank offers in action. There will be the usual food sorting activities, as well as a spotlight on some of the new programs like the Children’s Farmers Market and an interactive display educating people how to enroll in CalFresh Program (formerly known as FoodStamps). “If you give us an hour of your time you’ll be able to move through each station and participate in the work that the food bank does,” Foodbank Development

that reached an estimated 165,000 residents of Santa Barbara county. But the bank does much more than give leftover cans of fruit salad to charities. It also gets fresh produce from businesses, and teaches families about nutrition and healthy eating. It delivers groceries to low-income seniors, brings “mobile pantries” to 11 rural areas not served by other nonprofits, and provides low income children with nutritious food. “The Foodbank is about more than just dropping off cans,” Volunteer Marq Taylor said. Krista Morely, a community relations manager for CenCal Health, discovered that when she went to the previous Leadership Day. CenCal helps manage health insurance for low-income families and collaborating with the Foodbank seemed like a natural extension of the work the company already did.
Morely went thinking the Foodbank was a small but well-meaning grassroots distribution center. But when she got there she found herself overwhelmed at its organization and the sheer volume of food it worked with. “I was floored,” Morely said. “I was amazed at what the Foodbank did.” Morely said she broke down when she heard about the children’s BackPack program which provides children living in poverty with a backpack full of nutritious, easily-cooked food. “It was shocking to me that children in our community sometimes went home on Friday afternoon and weren’t sure when their next meal was going to be,” Morely said. Morely said through her job she’d seen the number of families on lowincome insurance programs rise since the economic downturn. But seeing faces put See FOOD, page 5
Officer Gina Fischer said. For almost 29 years the Foodbank has served as a distribution center for over 220 nonprofit organizations that help feed the hungry. Bins for its annual food drives are regular sights at supermarkets around Santa Barbara. Last year, the bank distributed almost 10 million pounds of food

Summer Solstice celebration moves to three days
DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT Santa Barbara’s Summer Solstice Celebration in Alameda Park will last three days this year – the first time in the event’s 37 year history. The celebration will go from June 24 through June 26. “We’re now celebrating ‘Sun’ Day,” said Claudia Bratton, the Solstice executive director. “We want an afternoon in the park filled with art and jazz, and fun for the whole family.” The Festival begins at 4 p.m. June 24 in Alameda Park, with an afternoon and evening of non-stop theatrical and musical entertainment until 9 p.m. “Randy Tico, one of Santa Barbara’s premier musicians puts together an amazing evening of entertainment, not to be missed, which also incorporates some of the parade ensembles,” Ms Bratton said. “Last year Kenny Loggins joined the band on stage.” The Saturday festival begins at noon
FROM PAGE 1 Authorities are trying to determine if the fight was gang related. After the fight, the alleged stabbers fled in a car. As the vehicle was speeding out of the parking lot, the vehicle hit a pickup truck, shattering glass and light reflector. The fight broke out just steps away from where children on Spring Break played in the sand, in the ocean and on the playground. Families were having picnics and adults were throwing horseshoes at the time of the fight. Authorities searched for the suspects and eventually took in two suspects.

Sheriff’s deputies used a helicopter to search for the suspects. An armed officer holding a rifle paced Cathedral Oaks near Dos Pueblos High School searching for a suspect. Sheriff’s deputies eventually found the car parked near Dos Pueblos High School a short time later and took a male into custody. A second male, with a cut on his back, was later found a short distance away and was also detained. None of the injuries appear to be life threatening. Investigators are interviewing witnesses to identify which persons were involved and whether the fight was gang related.
from noon until 6 p.m. with a variety of family and children’s activities, free art projects, booths, musical entertainment. The Solstice Parade will begin at noon Saturday, June 25, at State and Cota streets in downtown Santa Barbara. The Solstice Parade, which draws more than 100,000 people to the downtown, ends at Alameda Park. On Sunday, live entertainment will be featured from 1:30 to 6 p.m. on the main stage featuring soft jazz music as well as entertainment on the children’s stage from 1:30 to 6 p.m. All of the arts and crafts booths, food booths, and beer and wine garden will be open for all three days of the festival, Ms. Bratton said “The focal point on Sunday will be a community mural under the direction of mural artist Carlos Cuellar,” Bratton said. “We hope that people of all ages will help create this mural which will be approximately 60 feet long.”

NEWS IN BRIEF
Rubber duck search on high seas
Men have gone to sea in search of adventure since history began but few have searched for toy ducks and then written a book on the environment, the commercialization of childhood and consumer society. “MOBY-DUCK: The True Story of 28,800 Bath Toys Lost at Sea and of the Beachcombers, Oceanographers, Environmentalists, and Fools, Including the Author, Who Went in Search of Them” is Hohn’s tale of doing just that. Hohn, 38, now a features editor for GQ magazine, was a high school English teacher in Manhattan when he first learned of a cargo of plastic toys washing off the deck of a cargo ship in reading a student’s essay. Later he had an idea for a book, a map in his hands and a vision of a journey. “Perhaps the craziest thing I did—forget the seafaring and walking around in the habitat of polar bears—was quit my job and give up employer subsidized health benefits,” said Hohn. All told the book consumed some five years of his life, and that was more than a dozen years after the ducks disappeared.
Thieves stole four diamonds worth several million dollars from a trader’s stand at the world’s biggest watch and jewelry fair in Basel on Wednesday, prosecutors said. “Three men engaged the staff in a sales talk while one or two others opened the showcase,” said Markus Melzl, spokesman for the Basel prosecutor’s office. “These were real pros who had done some research ahead.” Watch and jewelry makers meet retailers from all over the world at the Basel fair which closes its doors on Thursday.

Brain scans of aggressive, antisocial teenage boys with the condition known as conduct disorder have found differences in the size and structure of parts of the brain that may be linked to their behavior. A study by British scientists showed the differences were there regardless of the age at which the patients developed the disorder— a finding which challenges the view that adolescents who develop conduct disorder are merely imitating badly behaved peers and do not have differences in their brains. Conduct disorder (CD) is a psychiatric condition characterized by higher than normal levels of aggressive and antisocial behavior. It is more common in boys than girls, can develop in childhood or in adolescence, and experts say it affects around five out of every 100 teenagers. Children and adolescents with CD are at greater risk of developing further mental and physical health problems when they are adults. “Changes in grey matter volume in these areas of the brain could explain why teenagers with conduct disorder have difficulties in recognizing emotions in others,” said Graeme Fairchild, who led the research and is now based at the Britain’s Southampton University.
Teen brain scan shows antisocial behavior
I have a confession to make: I’m not just a garden-variety chocoholic. I don’t just “like” chocolate, I am truly, madly, deeply, absolutely, completely and totally addicted to it. And I don’t have particularly high standards when it comes to chocolate. See’s Candy is great, but chocolate chips will do in a pinch, and so will that last finger-full of canned frosting. I admit it. My name is Leslie, and I am a choco-slut.
around the aisles of Vons when I spot the first itsy bitsy seasonally-attired Hershey Bars of each holiday season—and I can’t for the life of me figure out why they don’t do them up in red, white and blue for the Fourth of July, Memorial Day and Veteran’s Day.
Seriously, I can’t get enough of it. When I’m having a bad day (or, let’s face it, a good day, or an average day, or just a day), I put a piece of chocolate in my mouth, close my eyes and melt as the delicious flavor of cocoa spreads warmly over my mouth, caressing my tongue with its deep, rich essence. Plus, chocolate is a lot cheaper than therapy and I don’t need to make an appointment. And I finally have science on my side. A study at Johns Hopkins University found that a little chocolate every day can cut the risk of heart attack.
You can imagine my excitement when I heard I was going to a chocolate festival. Scrumptiously delicious visions of chocolate rivers, waterfalls, dancing Oompa Loompas and magic glass elevators danced in my mind, as we drove to our destination. The festival’s website said we could help build a giant castle out of chocolate bars. I could just picture Count Chocula overseeing the towers by wielding a fudge-filled scepter over us minions. By the time we arrived I was drooling with anticipation. Unfortunately, there’s no way to sugarcoat this: the festival was a bittersweet bust.
Maybe my expectations were just too high. After all, I’ve been known to dance
A little chocolate usually goes a long way with me. And like I said before, the choco-slut in me isn’t all that particular.
But in the case of this particular festival, it was a little chocolate and a whole lot of tchotchkes.
For every Churro dipped in chocolate (which wasn’t as good as it sounds) there were at least three vendors pushing decorative loaves of soap and two selling animal-themed wind chimes. For every super-anti-oxidant dark chocolate menopause cure (which tasted exactly like it sounds), there were at least three Balinese clothing importers and two old ladies selling knitted purses.
Nothing says chocolate like bankruptcy lawyers, life insurance salesmen, and Jacuzzi vendors. At least give me some chocolate with my junk mail, guys. Sure, there were thick slabs of generously frosted cake, chocolate chip cookies up the wazoo, and thousands of tons of varieties of fudge by the pound—but there were no chocolate castles, no chocolate rivers, no chocolate waterfalls and no friggin Oompa Loompas. Quite frankly, I felt a bit betrayed. I walked through three pavilions and I still had money in my wallet and a shirt that was relatively free of chocolate stains. Talk about a disappointment! Then I came across a scroll, with the “The Rules for Chocolate” on it. The author is unknown, but I feel quite cer-
tain she (and these were most certainly written by a woman) wouldn’t mind if I shared them with you:
• If you’ve got melted chocolate all over your hands, you’re eating it too slowly.
• Clearly, chocolate is a vegetable. Chocolate is derived from cacao beans. A bean is a vegetable. Sugar is derived from either sugar cane or sugar beets. Both are plants, which places them in the vegetable category. Therefore, chocolate is a vegetable.
• Chocolate-covered raisins, cherries, oranges, and strawberries all count as fruit. Eat as many as you want. Fruits are an important part of the Food Pyramid.
• Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It’ll take the edge off your appetite and you’ll eat less.
• If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories are afraid of heights, and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect themselves. • Chocolate has many preservatives. Preservatives make you look younger, therefore, chocolate is therapeutic.
• Put “eat chocolate” at the top of your list of things to do today. That way, at least you’ll get one thing done.
• A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place. Isn’t that handy? And finally,
• If you can’t eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you can’t eat all your chocolate, what’s wrong with you? Send it to me.

FROM PAGE 2 on the numbers moved her so much she started volunteering for the BackPack Program on a weekly basis. “When you’re actually preparing a backpack for a child that’s going to get them through the weekend, you know you’re making a difference,” Morely said. Leadership Day also won over Santa Barbara Bank and Trust’s Community Relations Officer Randy Weiss. Weiss said he, “had a blast,” doing a bread run at Albertsons last year. “Spending a morning with the Foodbank staff, touching and tasting—if you will—what they do really has much value for me personally and professionally,” Weiss said. Weiss said Bank and Trust values partnerships with the community and the two organizations have since collaborated on other projects together such as a Thanksgiving dinner at the Santa Barbara Boys and Girls Club. Taylor’s worked at the Foodbank for three years and said experiences like Weiss and Morely’s aren’t unique. All three have the same advice for anyone the least bit curious.

Buckle down with new car seat recommendations HEALTH
When the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) announced it’s new recommendations for car seats last week, I nearly had to restrain several parents. Let me help you get clicked-in to the AAP’s new safety guidelines. Rear-facing until 2 years old The AAP’s last policy on car seats came in 2002, with a recommendation to keep infants rear-facing until 20 pounds and 12 months of age. The new Aprill 2011 policy advises parents to now keep toddlers rear-facing until the age of 2 or until they meet the maximum height and weight restrictions for their car seat.
Many parents could barely wait for the 12 month/20 pound milestone, so it will be interesting to see how many parents try to stick it out until the two year mark. The rear-facing position offers superior protection to an infant’s head, neck and spine in the event of an accident. A 2007 study demonstrated that children under the age of 2 were 75% less likely to die or be severely injured if they are in a rear-facing position. While parents
often complain about lack of leg room and keeping their babies entertained, the idea of keeping their babies safe will likely win out.
5-point harness vs. booster seats vs. lap belts 5-point harness car seats are the safest forward-facing restraint and should be used until children reach the maximum weight or height limits for their car seat.

The safest seat in the car The safest spot in the car is the seat furthest from impact. As a result, most parents will use the center, back seat when possible.
I can remember how exciting it was to finally get to sit in the front seat of my parents’ cars. These days, the AAP recommends that children stay in the back seat until age 13.

FROM PAGE 1 The MarBorg victory is a blow to Allied, which is owned by Republic, the second largest trash hauler in the country. Allied has made a full-court press in recent months to stop MarBorg from taking control of the multimillion-dollar contracts. Stephen MacIntosh, general manager of Allied, said he is hopeful that the board of supervisors will disagree with the county staff. “If the supervisors award this contract to MarBorg on Tuesday the competitive environment of the south coast will be gone,” MacIntosh said. “If the board approves this, MarBorg will have a monopoly on the South Coast, and as a resident of the South Coast, I am really troubled by this.” MacIntosh, who left the city of Santa Barbara to work for Allied, said his trash company can offer lower rates than MarBorg. “Allied Waste provided the county with a superior proposal for Zone 2 in both price and services, and the services that would be critical in helping the county meet its required diversion amounts,” MacIntosh said. “We offered 12.5 percent rate reduction to residential rates. With MarBorg, ratepayers would pay more than $657,000 over the life of the 8-year-contract, than they would with Allied. But the county evaluation considered more than just lowest price. MarBorg has made a multimillion-dollar investment in the community with its con-
struction and debris and recycling facility on Santa Barbara’s Eastside. The facility has helped the county and the city divert tons of trash from the landfill.
MarBorg’s proposal, for example, offers to sort through commercial trash to pull out cardboard and other debris to increase diversion. Allied offered lower rates on recycling bins

for companies—to encourage recycling. MacIntosh said that the county should value proposals that encourage diversion, not rely on the hauler to sort through their trash. MacIntosh said that Allied is better prepared to respond to a natural disaster. The parent company can bring in trucks from all over the country if there is an emergency. Most importantly he worries that 20 Allied truck drivers will lose their jobs. The county, however, is convinced that the locally owned MarBorg will the best for the residents. “After a comprehensive and deliberative process, the County is very pleased with the outcome of this competitive process, which will result in additional services to our customers at lower rates,” said Mark Schleich of the County’s Public Works Department. Borgatello said that the winning proposal would not have happened if not for the hard work and dedication of MarBorg employees, who make the company run efficiently and successfully every day. “We most certainly feel that we earned this recommendation,” Borgatello said. “Our customer satisfaction survey reports have consistently been higher than any hauler in the county. Borgatello also said that MarBorg’s recycling facility proves that the company has been committed to the community for decades, not just in the last year. “We put our hard earned money at risk and we spent millions of dollars to divert trash from the Tajiguas Landfill,” Borgatello said.

APPLICATION OF TYNAN GROUP AGENTS FOR AMERICAN BAPTIST HOMES OF THE WEST, 900 CALLE DE LOS AMIGOS, (APN/ZONE DISTRICTS: VALLE VERDE CAMPUS 049-040-054/E-3; 049-440-016/A-1 & A-1; 049-040-050/A-1&E-3; 049-040-053/E-3; RUTHERFORD PARCEL - 049-440-015/A-1, GENERAL PLAN DESIGNATION: RESIDENTIAL 5 UNITS/ACRE, 1 UNIT/ACRE (MST2005-00742) The proposed project would be for an amended Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for additions and remodeling to the facilities at the Valle Verde Retirement Community facility. The CUP would also expand to encompass an adjacent parcel, known as the Rutherford Parcel, which is currently owned by Valle Verde. The project would involve the demolition of 3 independent living residential units (defined as each unit containing a kitchen), and the construction of 40 new independent living residential units for a net increase of 37 new independent living residential units. The existing 10 studio units (defined as one shared kitchen per four studios) would be reduced to 6 units through the demolition of 4 units.
Project components involving the support facilities for the residents would include a two-story addition to the Administration building, where a 6-room bed and breakfast and a small banking office would be located. The existing bed and breakfast, currently located in a former independent living unit would be demolished. The Assisted Living facility would include an addition for four new beds, and the Dining & Multi-Purpose Building would be remodeled along with minor additions totaling 1,300 square feet. The existing 4,348 square foot Maintenance Building would be demolished and a new 5,642 square foot maintenance facility would be constructed within the same location.
Several of the existing parking areas on the project site would be reconfigured for dedicated residential, visitor and employee parking, and would provide a total of 83 new parking spaces. A parking permit program would be implemented to track the residential and employee parking. After project implementation, a total of 414 parking spaces would be provided on the project site. A new driveway from the Rutherford Parcel would provide access to six of the eight proposed residential units on that lot, with the remaining two units accessed from within the campus. The project would include the dedication of a 9.8-acre oak woodland area on the western portion of the project site. The project also includes a minor Lot Line Adjustment between two parcels owned by Valle Verde. The discretionary applications required for this project are: 1. A Conditional Use Permit Amendment to allow expansion of the Valle Verde Retirement Community (SBMC § 28.94.030); 2. Modifications to allow less than the required front setback for the proposed development along Tornino Drive and proposed development along Valle Verde private roads (SBMC § 126.96.36.199); 3. Modifications to allow less than the required interior setback for some of the proposed development (SBMC § 188.8.131.52); 4. Modifications to allow less than the required distance between buildings for some of the proposed development (SBMC §184.108.40.206); and 5. A Lot Line Adjustment between APN's 049-440-015 & 016 for an equal trade of lot areas (SBMC §27.40).
Environmental Review: A Final Environmental Impact Report (FEIR) has been prepared along with responses to comments received during the comment period, and, prior to an action on the project, the Planning Commission will consider certification of the EIR, and must make findings pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act Guidelines Section 15091. A copy of the FEIR and response to comments can be found online at http://www.santabarbaraca.gov/Resident/Environmental_Documents/ listed under 900 Calle de los Amigos and is also available at the Planning Counter at 630 Garden Street.

Dating a divorcee is like dating a martial arts spy KITTY IN THE CITY
Dear Miss Kitty, I have been dating this guy for two months that is separated from his wife. They have filed for divorce but there is a lot of paperwork and the actual divorce is going to be about a year from now. He seems a very nice and normal man and is sad that their marriage didn’t work out. My friends say I shouldn’t get serious with him, but I am falling in love and don’t want to wait until the divorce is final to date him. —J.K, Montecito
Dating someone fresh out of serious is like playing twenty-one using the Roulette Wheel and cashews for chips. Doesn’t make sense and god knows, you can’t win much of anything. Is it really worth it to invest your one night in fabulous Las Vegas for a mouth full of nuts? I didn’t think so.
Your friends have your best interests at heart here, and I would listen MISS KITTY to them loud and clear. Perhaps they could do you a favor and borrow the dirty ropes from the bad guys and tie you up until your love-struck mind is thinking again.
