Jana Zimmer, a longtime Santa Barbara environmental attorneyturned-artist, is the newest member of the California Coastal Commission, one of the most powerful land use groups in the state. Assembly speaker John A. Perez, DLos Angeles, announced the appointment on Monday. Zimmer told the Daily Sound that she ZIMMER was “honored” to serve in the post. She applied for the seat once 15 years ago, but did not get it. “I have 30 years of experience working with the Coastal Act and have enjoyed living in Santa Barbara for most of my adult life,” Zimmer said. “It is very dear to my heart and I am very anxious to get to work. The appointment begins immediately. The Commission was created in 1972 to “protect, conserve, restore, and enhance environmental and human-based resources of the California coast.” It has long been a hotbed for controversy and conflict between coastal advocates and developers. While the commission is charged with protecting the coast and apply the Coastal Act, property owners often feel that the commission goes to far and tramples on the rights of property owners near the coastline. Zimmer graduated from San Diego State University and Loyola Law School and has more than 30 years of experience as a Coastal Act advocate. As a land use attorney, Zimmer has represented homeowners, environmental groups, ranchers and business owners among others. “I am delighted to name Ms. Zimmer as a member of the Coastal See ZIMMER, page 5

Santa Barbara City Council will likely decide to exempt TV screens at local gas stations from the stringent guidelines of the cityʼs sign committee at its meeting today.
BY NICK C. TONKIN
DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT
The advertisements blare from the television monitor at the Union 76 as Debra Vance pumps gas into her car. She doesn’t like the sound or the visuals of the digital displays, designed to inform and entertain customers as they fuel up at the corner of State Street and La Cumbre Road. “I just think we’re bombarded with advertising everywhere, why put it at the gas station?” Vance said. That question will be among the many regarding digital display signs answered at today’s 2 p.m. Santa Barbara City Council meeting The 7-member City Council is expected to exempt digital displays at gas pumps, which are relatively new, but
booming in popularity, from needing authorization from the Sign Committee. While some drivers find the screens that play advertisements and public announcements annoying, some council members don’t think the signs should be regulated by Santa Barbara’s stringent sign ordinances. “This is just following through the direction the council gave back in March,” Mayor Helene Schneider said. Santa Barbara has strict rules to keep the streets free from overbearing advertisement signs. But the city ordinances haven’t always kept up with the times and the latest technology permits advertisers to use more eye-catching animation and sound to lure in customers on displays. In March, the city moved to change
that by banning digital displays from being within 10 feet from the door or window of a store front, provided the intent of the display is to draw customers in from off the street. However, at a March meeting, the council opted to make an exception for gas pump displays. The pumps are outdoors and the displays can’t be seen by people not using the pump. The council instructed staff to insert language to exempt the pump screens from the regulations. “If it’s not really visible from the public realm, if it’s not audible from the public realm, I don’t think it’s in our purview,” said council member Grant House.

Santa Barbara County The Democratic Party honored its own at the 3rd Annual Roosevelt-Hamer Dinner on Saturday night. Set at the Rockwood Women’s Club, just up the street from the Mission, the dinner was a time of reflection on the past, celebration in the present and preparation for this year’s upcoming local election. “I’ve never been prouder to be a Democrat,” said Daraka Larimore-Hall, the chairman of the Santa Barbara County Democratic Party, in a powerful speech. “These are our values and we’re going to fight for them.” Referring to what he called the Republican mantra of “God, guns and gays,” which he said also now includes “pensions, taxes, immigrants,” Larimore-Hall blasted the “right-wing takeaways” but applauded his party’s efforts, past, present and future. “Are we going to quit, are we going to give in, or are we going to say, uh-uh, no?” he said. “No one is useful as a martyr.” The night was a mix of seriousness and silliness, too, with the selling of Obama earrings and a fundraising song sung by Assemblyman Das Williams. Other attendees included Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider, Rep Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, and members of the UCSB Campus Democrats,

who helped set up the dinner and serve the guests prior to the awards ceremony. Supervisor Salud Carbajal, who was presented with the Democratic Values Award, said the party is one that “doesn’t try to corner the market on what is patriotic in our country.” Larimore-Hall, who was given the Democratic Future Award, an award decided by ‘young Democrats,’ thanked
the 35-and-under crowd for their political efforts, calling them “the lifeblood of the party” and “very inspiring to me.” And after being given the Solidarity Award, the California Labor Federation was represented by its president, Connie Leyva. “Your fight is my fight and my fight is your fight,” said Leyva. “We have to keep fighting and we have to fight on.”
KEYT to air local firefighter show
Cut back or quit? It’s your decision. We’ll help.

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT
The spin-off of “On Patrol,” “On Duty” – which follows the daily goingson of local firefighters – will soon be airing on KEYT 3, starting on June 4 at 6:30 p.m. The show has grown to be so popular that it will now also be aired in Ventura County, in addition to its airings in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties. “There are many excellent shows that follow police officers, but almost none that follow firefighters,” said Ira Distenfield, the executive producer of the program. The show, about to start its second season, allows viewers to see the firefighters respond to emergency calls, perform training exercises and work on their equipment. Santa Barbara County Fire Capt David Sadecki voiced his support for the show’s openness, saying “On Duty is an opportunity for the public that we serve to gain an understanding of what we do on a daily basis.”

NEWS IN BRIEF
High Court orders releases
The Supreme Court yesterday ordered California to release tens of thousands of inmates or take other steps to ease overcrowding in its prisons to prevent "needless suffering and death." By a 5-4 vote, the high court told the nation's largest state prison system to sharply cut its inmate population in stages over two years in one of the biggest prison release orders in U.S. history. Justice Anthony Kennedy said for the court majority that the medical and mental health care provided by California's prisons had fallen below the standard of decency required by the Constitution. Kennedy cited suicidal inmates being held for prolonged periods in telephone booth-sized cages, backlogs of up to 700 prisoners waiting to see a doctor for care and as many as 54 inmates sharing a single toilet. He said drastic action was needed to prevent "needless suffering and death." California's 33 adult prisons were designed to hold about 80,000 inmates and now have about 145,000.
Beating suspect still in custody
A 31-year-old ex-convict arrested in the beating of a San Francisco Giants fan at Dodger Stadium on Opening Day remained in custody yesterday on a parole hold, prosecutors said. Giovanni Ramirez was taken into custody early on Sunday morning in connection with the attack on Bryan Stow, a crime that touched off a furor in Los Angeles over a failure by team and city officials to provide adequate security at the stadium. "The arrest of Giovanni Ramirez, the suspect in the Dodger Stadium beating, is under review by the District Attorney's Office," spokeswoman Sandi Gibbons said. She said Ramirez, who has two prior felony convictions, remained in custody on a parole hold. He has not been charged in the case. Police say they are still searching for two alleged accomplices in the March 31 beating of Stow, a 42-year-old paramedic and father of two who remains in critical condition at a San Francisco hospital.

FROM PAGE 1 Commission,” said Assembly speaker John A. Perez, in a prepared statement. “She has a unique background and skill set that will make her a valuable addition to the Commission charged with protecting California’s coastline, which is a source of pride and jobs for our entire state.” Over the years, Zimmer has represented groups such as the Santa Barbara Fishers, Friends of Toro Canyon and the Urban Creeks Council. “Jana Zimmer has a 30 year track record of fighting for the coast,” David Pettit, Senior Attorney in the Santa Monica office of the Natural Resources Defense Council said. “Jana is fairminded, tough, and a problem-solver. She has no agenda but to do the right thing. She’ll bring deep knowledge and pragmatism to the work of the Commission.”
Zimmer had a team of supporters in Santa Barbara County lobbying for her to win the appointment. Local environmental groups such as the Gaviota Coast Conservancy, Santa Barbara Channelkeeper , the Santa Barbara County Action Network, and various individuals pushed for the appointments. Union groups also lent their support. “Building Trades workers understand that a healthy environment and a strong economy go hand-in-hand,” said Bob Balgenorth, President of the Building & Construction Trades Council. “We applaud the appointment of Jana Zimmer to the Coastal Commission because she is committed to the responsible stewardship of California’s coastline, and also understands the importance of rebuilding our economy in the process. “Her history of work as an expert in land use issues has demonstrated her commitment to environmentally responsible development, a record that translates into economic and environmental
where they languish for years without due process of law. Once that ethical line is crossed for foreign enemies of the state how long before it is crossed for U.S. citizens suspected of being such? Not long. Ask the Americans of Japanese decent who were confined to remote concentration camps during World War II, or those Americans of Mideast decent who have been spirited away to prisons during the war on terror. On two fronts U.S. forces are mired in a seemingly endless war on terror. The military expeditions in Iraq and Afghanistan have cost thousands of U.S. lives and over a trillion dollars—so far. It is difficult to calculate an acceptable return on these costly ventures. The way we are going about it, any victory over terrorism will be a Pyrrhic victory. Although he now sleeps with the fishes, Osama bin-Laden has a victory that we have given him. Our panicked reaction to his 9/11 attacks has undermined our constitutional rights, drained our treasury, killed thousands of our military men and women, and compromised our ethics. We have allowed him to change us from what we should be, to what we have become—fair weather Americans who abandon our principles, surrender our rights, and diminish our freedom for government’s tenuous promise of physical safety. As long as we continue to react like this bin-Laden will laugh from his grave. Randy Alcorn’s Right on Target appears every other Tuesday in the Daily Sound. E-mail him at RandyAAlcorn@gmail.com

She briefly worked for a another client again and then set her sights on the Coastal Commission. “I was casting about for another way to contribute so when I understood that there were these opportunities at the commission, that resonated with me,” Zimmer said. “It is an important position.” Zimmer said she’s long been an advocate for the coast and serving on the Coastal Commission will allow her to continue her passion. “I am the most interested in trying to help move the discussion forward in terms of finding a better balance and better relationships between state interests and local interests,” Zimmer said. “I am really anxious to incorporate the concerns and interests of all the interested stakeholders in our community.”
