Emma Cohen said she thought Santa Barbara City Council members might get hungry during yesterday’s long meeting. So she made them a snack. She stood at the podium and offered her tray of goodies — about a dozen triangular sandwiches made with scraps of plastic litter from local beaches. “They're delicious and tasty,” she said, offering

Councilman Frank Hotchkiss, who favors plastic bags, reinforced doubts he previously expressed concerning the environmental hazard of the bags. Matt Fore, environmental service manager, explained to Hotchkiss once again that the bags fill the stomachs of marine wildlife who then See PLASTIC, page 4

Carlin Dunne is at home on two wheels. He raced bikes and motorcycles growing up. He eventually developed a career out of it. And last week, he completed one of the toughest, most celebrated courses in the world in record time. So when the 28-year-old former competitive motorcycle racer wanted to transition out of the racing scene, he naturally grabbed a bigger role at the family shop, Ducati of Santa Barbara, advancing to a co-owner. After staying out of competitive racing for the better part of four years, Dunne – who was born in Santa Barbara but raised in Ojai – was an unlikely candidate to take a practically stock Ducati Multistrada 1200 to the 89th annual Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, near Colorado Springs, Colorado in the front range of the Rocky Mountains. And he was an even more unlikely candidate to set a course record for motorcycles. Dunne wasn’t even familiar with the race. “I felt kind of guilty not knowing what it was, being a motorcycle guy,” he said. But Dunne did just that on June 27, with a time of 11 minutes, 11.32 seconds. In addition to a first place trophy, he also left Pikes Peak with the Rookie of the Year award. “In the race Dunne got the hole shot at the start and never looked back,” Ducati said in a press release issued after the race. The Pikes Peak course has long been
notable for its mix of conditions, shifting from tarmac to gravel, and back to pavement. It has 156 turns over about 13 miles. Significantly, it’s an uphill race, with the finish line at 14,100 feet. “The only constant is that there’s no constant,” Dunne said of the race. Next year, the entire course will be paved. Dunne said this year was his “last chance” to compete on the classic course.
Unlike many competitive racers who spend months or even years staking out the Pikes Peak course, Dunne hardly had any preparation. And on a course with so many variables, he said he was always thinking. “It’s a calculated risk, you have to know exactly when you’re out,” Dunne said. “It’s like a chess match.

NEW YORK (Reuters) — Sherwood Schwartz, the Emmy-winning television mastermind behind “Gilligan’s Island” and “The Brady Bunch,” has died at 94. “He had a lot of favorite projects and a lot of favorite shows and his favorite one was always the next one,” SCHWARTZ his son and producing partner, Lloyd J. Schwartz, told TheWrap. “He didn’t really die. He just ran out of time to do things.” The father and son were working together on the upcoming Warner Bros.
film adaptation of “Gilligan’s Island” at the time of Schwartz’s death, Lloyd J. Schwartz said. Besides creating shows that became syndicated staples across generations, Schwartz wrote for legends including Bob Hope, Red Skelton, and Milton Berle. Born in Passaic, New Jersey, in 1916, Schwartz studied pre-med at New York University before writing for “The Bob Hope Radio Show” in 1939 with his brother, Al. After four years with Hope, he wrote for the Armed Forces Radio Service, then for the radio version of “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet.” Once he turned to television, he worked on more than 700 shows, by his
own count. They included “I Married Joan,” “The Red Skelton Show,” and “My Favorite Martian.” He shared a 1961 Emmy for writing for Skelton. In 1963, Schwartz created “Gilligan’s Island,” which would become a TV staple and provide a classic setup for shows as diverse as “Lost” and “Survivor”: a group of diverse people are trapped on an island, trying to live as comfortably as possible and perhaps one day go home. The simple scenario endures in reruns, and its theme song, which he cowrote with George Wyle, is one of the catchiest in TV history -- perhaps only matched by the “Brady Bunch” theme that he co-wrote with Frank DeVol.
