Santa Barbara City Councilman Randy Rowse spoke to roughly 30 supporters Thursday at De la Guerra Plaza as he formally kicked-off his first election campaign for his council seat. Rowse, appointed six months ago, said his platform is based around boosting public safety, cleaning up the streets and keeping the city fiscally frugal.

H&M, Santa Barbara’s newest clothing and accessories store, opened yesterday to eager shoppers. The 15,000 square-foot store occupies the old Barnes & Noble building on the 800 block of State Street. The store has 40 employees. The company’s “High fashion, low

prices” motto has garnered it a large and loyal following. Christina Aguirre-Kolb arrived at 5 a.m., the first of the 515 customers who lined up outside the store. Aguirre-Kolb said she loves the store’s style, sales, and social awareness. “It’s cool Euro-stuff that you don’t get at Macy’s,” Aguirre-Kolb said.

H&M rewarded that loyalty by providing the first 250 customers with free, organic tote bags and scratch cards with prizes like $10 to $300 certificates. Not wanting to leave the other 265 out, the store also provided drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and a live DJ. “We’re really excited to be here in Santa Barbara,” H&M representative Jennifer Ward said.

The store opens at a difficult time for downtown retail. Blue Bee, Borders and Barnes & Noble are among the stores that have since disappeared. Ward said the company had been looking into a Santa Barbara location for a long time. She said the West Coast is an untapped area for the retail See RETAIL, page 7

Santa Barbara Councilman Randy Rowse, at De la Guerra Plaza Thursday, wants to keep his seat on the City Council after being appointed to it in December.

The new kid on the block wants another go. Randy Rowse, appointed to a one-year term on the Santa Barbara City Council six months ago, kicked off his campaign Thursday for his first full term. The owner of Paradise Café and nearly 40-year Santa Barbara resident told supporters he wants to continue the collegial atmosphere on the council since he replaced Das Williams, after the twoterm liberal councilman was elected to State Assembly. “I’d like to continue the work I’ve started with my teammates,” Rowse said. “I think we’ve made some progress towards a safer, cleaner, more fiscally solvent Santa Barbara.” Rowse launched his first council election campaign at De la Guerra Plaza, just a few yards away from where his colleague Michael Self announced her re-election bid two weeks ago. Notable figures in attendance included Self, Hotchkiss, former councilmen Dan Secord and Phil Bugay, and former council candidates Scott Burns and Bonnie Raisin. In his four-minute speech, Rowse outlined his three-point platform to “keep the city safe, keep the city clean, and don’t spend all the money,” he See ROWSE, page 6


Can revisiting an old flame open up new wounds? KITTY IN THE CITY

Dear Miss Kitty, I want to reach out to an old girlfriend and let her know how I think I may have harmed her and also give her the opportunity to let me know of things that hurt her that maybe I am not aware of. I honestly don’t want to cause any harm or bring up the past. My motives are about doing the right thing for the right reasons but I worry that I might cause more harm by contacting her. I have wanted to do this many times, but I didn’t feel, until now I could do this selflessly, and now I think I can. Do you see any issue with this? – J.M., Santa Barbara

Dear J, High above safe and level ground we carefully balance our ethics along with our emotions as we endeavor to right the wrongs that we perceive that we made in this life. Although our side of the street may be clean it is never without a few cracks – some deep that continually trip us up, and some just small dents to remind us of where we have been and how we behaved when we were there. No one’s sidewalk is pristine unless they haven’t been living their life. It is a gracious and noble endeavor to reach out to those that we have in our own awareness wronged. However, making true amends for another presupposes that there is a need. I believe the concept of altruism is flawed by its very definition and reaching out to someone, although generous in sprit is as much about the self as it is the other

human being. It can be no other way. Those that harbor a living grudge or exude the weak, but caustic stench of a victim mentality (not always the same thing) can never be reached by a thousand amends. MISS KITTY Those that have learned from the experience and have compassion for mistakes as learning tools, may be so far along their path that amends are not needed nor necessary. When someone willing steps out into the uncomfortable space of acknowledging their failures, mistakes, or confusions, they truly stick a neck out to be bitten off, ignored or perhaps benevolently accepted. Making amends can also be dangerous business, since there is no money-back guarantee that doing so will not resurrect worms that have long since died in the can and there is only blind faith as to what the reception might be. Regardless of the bravery or closure that they are seeking, no one can “fix,� “undo� or actually mitigate damage that has been done to another. Ultimately the supposed injured party must do that for themselves. That is why it makes sense to be as careful and caring in our relationships as we possibly can. For when a relationship is compromised or dies, along with the emotional collateral damage comes the reality that the lack of any remain-

ing relating indentures both people to the sometimes lonely reality that they will be doing the work of fixing themselves â&#x20AC;&#x201C; solo. And there lies one of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand lessons at your feet: making amends is always for the self-first â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK. The amend-maker gets the full value, since the value isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in the amendees reception or even the outcome of the amends. For the amend-maker, their atonement is the tangible evidence that they have accepted their choices, past, present and future and are accountable for those choices - and that can be worthy of sharing all by itself. Dear J, Boys and Girls, Sometimes the light bulb of wisdom comes with a blinding flash of awareness. Sometime it takes a slow and steady message on a dimmer switch to get it right, but regardless of the method, the difficult truth is that we truly owe both ourselves and others integrity in all we do and say â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that is something never to stop pursuing. As an inventor, Thomas Edison made 1,000 unsuccessful attempts at inventing the light bulb. When a reporter asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How did it feel to fail 1,000 times?â&#x20AC;? Edison replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fail 1,000 times. The light bulb was an invention with 1,000 steps.â&#x20AC;? Have a naughty day!

NEWS IN BRIEF

NY delays gay marriage vote

ALBANY, New York (Reuters) – The New York state Senate again put off a vote on legalizing same-sex marriage Thursday, and the Republican Senate leader said lawmakers would meet again today to decide what to do. The bill is one vote short of enough support for passage in the state Senate. It was approved in the state Assembly by a comfortable margin. If approved, New York would be the sixth and by far the most populous U.S. state to legalize gay marriage, and the vote would be a huge victory for the gay rights movement. “For the good health of all the members and our guests that are here, we apologize but we will be adjourning,” Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos told reporters late on Thursday. Skelos said Republican senators would privately discuss the bill to legalize same-sex marriage on Friday and whether a vote should be taken on the issue. Republicans hold a narrow majority in the Senate and have been holding out for exemptions to same sex marriage for religious groups opposed to gay nuptials. The sticking point for some Republicans is whether exemptions should be extended only to clergy and some religious groups or to any organization or individual with a religious objection to same-sex marriage. A trio of Republican senators met several times this week with Governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat who has made same-sex marriage a top priority this year. Cuomo on Wednesday told reporters he remained optimistic lawmakers will come to an agreement on religious protections and pass the measure before they break for a lengthy recess. They could leave Albany as soon as tonight.

Republicans walk out over taxes

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republicans walked out of budget talks on Thursday, setting up a showdown between President Barack Obama and House Speaker John Boehner over how to extend U.S. borrowing and avoid a looming debt default. Vice President Joe Biden and a handful of lawmakers had been working on a budget-cutting deal that would allow Congress to sign off on continued borrowing, but Republicans quit unexpectedly after saying the group had reached an impasse over tax increases sought by Democrats. An agreement would give lawmakers political cover to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling before August 2, when the Treasury Department has said it will run out of money to pay the country’s bills. Default could occur if Congress does not act by then, which could push the United States back into recession and send markets plunging around the globe.

DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT After 34 years and six different locations, longtime business owner Grant House is closing his popular sewing machine shop. “It is time for us to close,” said House, a City Councilman who was the highest vote getter in 2009. “It’s an economy issue. This has been such a long recession. We were hopeful we could climb out of it.” House will continue service machines, but will no longer offer retail services. An art gallery and frame shop will take over the space, 128 East Canon Perdido St. House was hopeful that someone would buy Grant House Sewing Machines, but the deal fell through a week ago. Right now, the councilman is focused on selling his inventory, and is offering deals. Many of his customers are disappointed that he is closing the shop. “There’s real shock and dismay that we are doing this,” House said. House’s first job was sewing leather handbags in a factory. He opened his shop out of his garage in 1977 then moved it to several retail outlets over the years. House plans to keep the store open through early July.

Authorities arrest four in drug bust DAILY SOUND FILE PHOTO

Santa Barbara Councilman Grant House, owner of Grant House Sewing Machines on Canon Perdido Street, will close his business next month after 34 years.

The Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office and six agencies teamed up to make four drug related arrests on Wednesday. Authorities from the Santa Barbara County Regional Narcotic Task Force, Tulare County Sheriff’s Office, Farmersville Police Department, Exeter Police Department, Tulare Police Department, Lindsay Police Department and the California Department of Fish and Game Warden, assisted in the arrests. Authorities served warrants at the 100

The “main target” of the investigation, Jose Guillermo Perez Lopez, 69, was arrested on the 100 block of Nogal Drive, while attempting to destroy narcotics. Authorities found 8 ounces of methamphetamine, cocaine and heroin packaged

To do that, Rowse joins his colleagues who make up the conservative bloc â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Dale Francisco, Frank Hotchkiss and Self â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in pressing for more police.

and Grant House â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who cast the deciding vote to appoint Rowse â&#x20AC;&#x201C; said they nominated him because he would not seek election. Rowse denies he ever said he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run, but said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t plan to in December. He said he was undecided even two weeks ago. But even though all of the incumbents are running, Rowse said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to campaign as a slate. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also not seeking the formal endorsement of his colleagues. Daraka Larimore-Hall, Santa Barbara County Democratic Party chair, said he expected Rowse to run. But he believes Francisco, Self and Rowse are all equally vulnerable next to the slate of opponents Falcone, Schwartz and Cathy Murillo â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which his group endorsed last month. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been lockstep on a number of issues,â&#x20AC;? Larimore-Hall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They certainly have been working very closely together on realigning politics on the

council away from thinking of ourselves as a broad community.â&#x20AC;? Larimore-Hall said the election would be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;clean sweepâ&#x20AC;? in favor of the Democratsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; slate. The filing deadline for city council candidates is more than a month away, leaving time for more contenders to enter the field. Larimore-Hall criticized Rowse for not being clear enough on his positions on city issues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What I would like to hear form Mr. Rowse is less about him as person, and more about what he thinks about the problems of the city,â&#x20AC;? Larimore-Hall said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal, as a party, is to make the election about the issues.â&#x20AC;? But Rowse said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because constituents view him as a political outsider that earns him support. He said that in both his restaurant and on council, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in my business and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like to serve people,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the wrong business.â&#x20AC;?

The store is offering several sales. Customers are hard pressed to find any item above $20. Shorts can go for $5, jeans around $10, and a pair of gladiator sandals will set customers back $14.95. Alice Upton and Haydee Ramirez, part of the self-described “First 20” in the line, say H&M clothing is durable, versatile, and sus-

tainable. Its skirts, dresses, and other accessories can be worn almost anywhere by anyone. “If you’re a working woman you can wear it and if you’re a teenager you can wear it,” Upton said. They also said the company maintains an eco-friendly attitude and is a big player with international charities like UNICEF. And the staff is peppy and welcoming. “I remember when I first stepped into an H&M in Manhattan,” Ramirez said. “It felt like home.” Further down the line, Janet Sackett believes it’s the right kind of store for Santa Barbara. “It’s nice to have a more normal store in Santa Barbara instead of just the high-end stores,” Sackett said.

The project consists of a proposal to remove a portion of an existing concrete patio that has been undermined by erosion on the coastal bluff, removal of a potting shed; and installation of a new curb, railing and gate at the edge of the remaining concrete patio. The project includes the “as-built” removal of five eucalyptus trees within the 75-year geologic setback (two on the subject lot and three on the adjacent vacant lot to the north), installation of new landscaping with associated irrigation; and redirecting drainage away from the top of bluff and rebuilding access stairs to the lower deck. There is an existing 5,312 square foot two-story single-family residence, a 520 square foot attached two-car garage, a 350 square foot bath house with a 480 square foot covered patio with a deck above on a 20,300 square foot lot located in the Appealable Jurisdiction of the Coastal Zone and the Hillside Design District. The removal of the potting shed and undermined portion of the deck and installation of the curb, rail and gate were previously done under Emergency Permit BLDL2009-02399. The discretionary application required for this project is a Coastal Development Permit (CDP200900016) to allow the proposed development in the Appealable Jurisdiction of the City’s Coastal Zone (SBMC §28.45.009);

The Environmental Analyst has determined that the project is exempt from further environmental review pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act Guidelines Section 15301 (l) (4) Existing Facilities.

CELEBRITIES BORN ON THIS DAY: Minka Kelly, 31; Sherry Stringfield, 44; Jeff Beck, 67; Mick Fleetwood, 69 Happy Birthday: Open your heart and your plans to those who can help you achieve your dreams. Don’t be shy or afraid to change your mind. Putting pressure on others may not be your style, but this year it will be necessary. Greater accomplishments will come your way if you are disciplined and intent on how you deal with any obstacles you face. Your numbers are 3, 12, 20, 24, 28, 33, 48 ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don’t count on anything or anyone. Disappointment is likely to set off an emotional situation that will not end happily. Problems will develop at home because of changes made by either you or someone else. Focus on yourself for a change. 3 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Don’t reveal secrets. Instead, nurture important relationships and to pick up new skills and information that will bring greater professional opportunities. Share your experience and offer your services to someone who can help you promote what you want to pursue. 3 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): It will be difficult to use up all the energy you have unless you offer your help. Be well aware of what’s expected of you. Being overly anxious is what will get you into trouble. It will be difficult to recover from an impulsive financial mistake. 4 stars CANCER (June 21-July 22): Don’t be too quick to judge others for the way situations are handled. Complaining is not an option unless you are prepared to fix whatever isn’t working. Focus on being a team player and a loyal partner. 2 stars LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do what needs doing without making a big deal. Overreacting will hold you back but jumping in and taking an active role will get things back on track. Love and romance are in the stars and will flourish in a function or activity that highlights your versatility. 5 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Don’t expect anything to go according to plan. Someone will try to make you look bad or spread misinformation about you or your motives.
