Facing budget problems, city ends loans to employees BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

Brinkerhoff residents win

The Santa Barbara City Council unanimously voted to keep the diagonal parking spaces on Brinkerhoff Avenue after overwhelming support from residents.

City trash consultant

The city of Santa Barbara plans to hire a consultant with expertise in trash to help draft a bid proposal for a city trash contract set to expire in 2013.

U.S. to review Pakistan

In the face of a massive public backlash, the Santa Barbara City Council halted its controversial, seven-year employee mortgage loan program. “I think we have consensus from

all seven of us that we have no intention to continue this program,” Mayor Helene Schneider said. The city loaned police chief Cam Sanchez $500,000 in 2001 to buy a house in Santa Barbara. A year later, the City Council adopted a formal Employee Mortgage Loan Assistance

“I think we have consensus from all seven of us that we have no intention to continue this program.”

Program. The city made 45 loans since 2002. Nine employees have paid the loans back. The city loaned more than $4.4 million to 36 other employees to help purchase homes in the Santa Barbara area. The terms of the program were first revealed in a Daily Sound series of articles. According to the terms of the deal, the employee would have to come up with 80 percent of the financing and five percent of their own money, the city would kick in the remaining 15 percent. The employees would be required to pay interest on the loan for the first

five years. The city would buy down the interest rate to a below-market value. After the fifth year the loan would become amortized over a 30year period but due in 15 years. Members of the City Council said it is important to stop the program going forward. “It’s not a matter of going back and wagging our finger at the past staff or employees,” Randy Rowse said. “It’s more a matter of saying from this point forward we should assume these kinds of programs should not go forward.” See LOANS, page 6

Brinkerhoff keeps its slant BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

The Santa Barbara City Council unanimously voted to keep the diagonal parking spaces on Brinkerhoff Avenue after overwhelming support from residents. The city set up the diagonal parking on the street during construction work on the Mission Creek Bridge. Residents started skeptical, but found the changes improved safety and convenience on the street. After a year, they began circling a petition to make the parking changes permanent. Owners of 16 out of the 17 properties

street’s landmark status. “We feel strongly that parallel parking is a character of the cityscape … the kind of feature that gives you that rich visual picture of the neighborhood that has existed for over 50 years,” Murray said. Caroline and Tony Vassallo were the only dissenting residents on the street, believing that the change blighted the historical district. “When you do not allow the commercialization of big box stores in Santa Barbara, I would find it sharply inconsistent to allow the diagonal strip

“We are not a static neighborhood who’s dying. You gave us an improvement that we loved and we’d like to continue that improvement.”

for their action. Grant House said the effort that the community put it alone was almost enough to grant the request. “I think there’s a great spirit here that we want to honor,” House said. Mayor Helene Schneider called the residents’ effort, “democracy at its best,” and congratulated them on winning over the entire council with their lobbying efforts. “E-mails work,” Schneider said. The council instructed the Landmark Commission to find a design that keeps the street one-way and maintains the diagonal parking.

on the street signed on to the petition. The Transportation and Circulation Commission unanimously approved it in early March. But the Historical Landmark Commission rejected the idea and denied the request. With the two agencies at odds, city staff looked to the council for direction. Supporters turned out at yesterday’s meeting and lobbied the city council to make the changes permanent. Neighbors said the parking increased pedestrian safety, eased congestion, and made parking more convenient for homes and businesses. “It looks better, it’s safer, it’s quieter,” resident Barbara Primeau said. The diagonal parking did have its opponents. Fermina Murray, a member of the Landmark Commission but not speaking on behalf of the commission, told the council that the commission believed Brinkerhoff’s previous parking arrangement stayed true to the purpose of

commercial parking of 41 vehicles in one block honored with Landmark status,” Caroline Vassallo said. Other residents rejected that argument. Jeanne Kahre told the council that the neighborhood has changed over the years and most of it has been for the better. “We are not a static neighborhood who’s dying,” Kahre said. “You gave us an improvement that we loved and we’d like to continue that improvement.” DAILY SOUND / Matt Graves Council members praised the residents Angled parking spots line the street of Brinkerhoff where most of the local residents consider them an improvement.

City to hire trash consultant NEWS

BY JOSHUA MOLINA DAILY SOUND EDITOR

The city of Santa Barbara plans to hire a consultant with expertise in trash to help draft a bid proposal for a city trash contract set to expire in 2013. The council voted 6-1 on Tuesday to hire consultants HF&H to help draft a request for proposals. The contract will not exceed $106,000 and will be reimbursed by the hauler who wins the contract. Allied Waste Services’ contract to haul trash on the Westside of Santa Barbara is set to expire in 2013, The city pays about $15.5 million to Allied Waste Services and Marborg Industries for trash services. Kristy Schmidt, the city’s employee relations manager, said the city simply does not have the expertise or time inhouse to oversee and manage a complex request for proposals. “Staff is recommending professional support for the procurement process,” Schmidt said. “They bring in expertise that staff doesn’t really have.

Schmidt said she wanted to make sure that the bid process was fair and objective and hiring an outside consultant would help ensure that. Some members of the council earlier in the meeting wanted to rely primarily on the work recently done by the county on the issue of solid waste. The county of Santa Barbara recently

said councilman Dale Francisco. “There is a great overlap or should be a great overlap.” Councilman Frank Hotchkiss said it was probably a good idea for the council to hire the consultant rather than “micromanaging” the process. He said denying the consultant now could be pennywise, but pound foolish.

“I believe that our trash problems are not that different from the county of Santa Barbara’s trash problems. There is a great overlap or should be a great overlap.”

selected Marborg to haul trash in the Eastern Goleta Valley after a competitive bid process. The city of Goleta also recently chose to negotiate a contract with Marborg. “I believe that our trash problems are not that different from the county of Santa Barbara’s trash problems,”

As part of the vote, the council directed the city staff to use the results of the county’s RFP as a baseline; to engage a council subcommittee on the status of the RFP along the way; and make sure that any elements of the RFP do not conflict with any future city plans for conversion technology.

compound north of Islamabad and engaged in a firefight there. Officials were still debating whether to release a “gruesome” picture of his body. Washington kept Pakistani officials in the dark about the special forces assault carried out on Monday, fearing they might “alert the targets” and jeopardize the mission, which ended with bin Laden’s death, CIA Director Leon Panetta told Time magazine. The revelation that bin Laden had holed up in a fortified compound in the military garrison town of Abbottabad, possibly for five to six years, prompted many U.S. lawmakers to demand a review

of the billions of dollars in aid Washington gives to nuclear-armed Pakistan. Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, issuing his first response to questions about how bin Laden was able to live undetected for so long near the capital Islamabad, did little to dispel suspicions. “Some in the U.S. press have suggested that Pakistan lacked vitality in its pursuit of terrorism, or worse yet that we were disingenuous and actually protected the terrorists we claimed to be pursuing,” Zardari wrote in the Washington Post. “Such baseless speculation ... doesn’t reflect fact.” It was the first substantive public comSee PAKISTAN, page 12

The White House also released more details about the killing of the world’s mostwanted man, including that bin Laden was unarmed when he was shot at least once in the head by a U.S. commando.

the opportunity to sample cheese made from human breast milk, getting mixed reviews and some puzzled looks. The Lady Cheese Shop is a temporary art installation by Miriam Simun, a graduate student at New York University who hopes to use the craft of cheese-making to raise questions about the ethics of modern biotechnologies. “Cheese is the conversation starter,� Simun said. “Some people are loving it, and some people are gagging.� Simun found three nursing women willing to have their milk turned into cheese. She screened the milk for diseases, pasteurized it and learned the basics of cheese-making. Three varieties were available on Sunday—West Side Funk, Midtown Smoke, described as “creamy and just pure heaven,� and Wisconsin Chew, the taste of which apparently reflected the vegetable-filled diet of the woman who provided its milk.

Telescope for space aliens shut down

The search for intelligent life in the universe, at least beyond planet Earth, has been dealt a major blow by government budget constraints. The world’s only radio telescope array specially designed to eavesdrop on potential signals from distant worlds was shut down earlier this month after money ran out, said Seth Shostak, senior astronomer for the group that runs the northern California facility. The setback comes at a crucial time for the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute, headquartered in Mountainview, California. Astronomers there were anticipating a slew of potential new research targets from the dozens of potentially life-supporting “exoplanets� newly detected by NASA’s Kepler space telescope to be orbiting distant stars in the Milky Way Galaxy. “It’s a frustrating thing to know that there are worlds out there that may have life, intelligent life, and not be able to look for them,� Shostak told Reuters on Thursday.

Construction on new airport terminal nears completion; officials plan June party BY LYZ HOFFMAN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

The new terminal at the Santa Barbara Airport is almost here. Scheduled to open and be operational sometime in the middle of July, the new building terminal will feature elevators, escalators and various other new amenities, said Hazel Johns, the assistant airport director. “The new building is substantial,” she said. “It’s what we’ve been planning for.” With the entire project about 68 percent completed, the rest of the work should only take about another six months or so to be finished, depending on the weather, said Johns. Those other steps towards completion include finishing the roadway and parking improvements and relocating the historic terminal, for what Johns called “a huge change.” One noteworthy feature of the new terminal will be its more contained design, with the baggage tents, security and car rental services all in one building. The airport has taken steps to make its project more environmentally friendly, too, registering with the United States Green Building Council Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). “It’s under construction every day,” she said. “The inside of the building is being completed while [we’re] still working on the outside. [It’s] coming along fine.” Santa Barbara City Council on Tuesday

Dale Francisco said the program was nothing novel, pointing out that the city has grappled with the issue of housing in the past and the results have been mixed. “We tried to do subsidized housing for public safety employees and that didn’t work out either,” Francisco said. Mayor Schneider said it was good to have the program come to light but lamented the tone it took on. She did not cast blame but said it provided a good lesson on how to proceed if similar issues come up. “When things like this happen in the future, I hope we can look at it and ask questions,” Schneider said. “‘Ok, why did the council do what it did?

PAKISTAN

FROM PAGE 3 ment by any Pakistani leader on the airborne raid that killed the al Qaeda leader, who had become the face of Islamist militancy since masterminding the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. Pakistan has come under intense international scrutiny since bin Laden’s death, with questions on whether its security agencies were too incompetent to catch him or knew all along where he was hiding, and even whether they were complicit. “It would be premature to rule out the possibility that there were some individuals inside of Pakistan, including within the official Pakistani establishment, who might have been aware of this,” White House counterterrorism chief John Brennan told National Public Radio. “We’re not accusing anybody at this point, but we want to make sure we get to the bottom of this,” he said. Reflecting a U.S.-Pakistani alliance strained by years of mistrust, Islamabad was not told about the raid until after all

LOANS

FROM PAGE 6 Employees of the Santa Barbara Police and Public Works Departments were the biggest beneficiaries of the city’s mortgage loan program, according to a review of public records. Ten people in the police department— nine police officers and one parking enforcement officer—received mortgage

U.S. aircraft were out of Pakistani airspace. At the same time, killing bin Laden— who became the epitome of evil for many Americans as architect of the 2001 attacks on New York and Washington—has given Obama a popularity boost at home where his standing had been eroded by economic woes and high gasoline prices. About four in 10 Americans say their opinion of Obama improved after he ordered the bin Laden raid. But the bump in his ratings could be short-lived as voters focus again on domestic concerns crucial to his 2012 re-election prospects. Obama may face more pressure to speed the planned withdrawal this July of some U.S. forces from the unpopular war in Afghanistan. The White House was also wrestling with releasing what it called a “gruesome” image of bin Laden’s corpse—a move that could quell any doubts in the Muslim world on whether he was dead and also give closure to Americans nearly a decade after the 2001 attacks. But critics say such photos could also offend Muslim sensibilities and be exploited by extremists.

White House Press secretary Carney, cautioned: “There are sensitivities here in terms of the appropriateness of releasing photographs of Osama bin Laden.” The Afghan Taliban challenged the truth of bin Laden’s death, saying Washington had not provided “acceptable evidence to back up their claim” that he had been killed. No photos or video of bin Laden’s swift burial at sea have been released. While Islamabad hailed the killing of bin Laden as an important milestone in the fight against terrorism, Pakistan’s foreign ministry expressed “deep concerns” that the operation was carried out without informing it in advance. Pakistan, which for years has said it did not know bin Laden’s whereabouts, said it had been sharing information about the targeted compound with the CIA since 2009. “He was not anywhere we had anticipated he would be but now he is gone,” Zardari said, crediting a “decade of cooperation and partnership between the United States and Pakistan.”

“When things like this happen in the future, I hope we can look at it and ask questions.” loans each ranging from $78,000 to $139,000 to buy homes on the South Coast. Although the program was conceived as a tool to recruit and retain city employ-

ees, the city does not have any data on whether the loans actually attracted highly skilled employees to the area or whether it was able to keep the employees.
