The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors’ redistricting discussion started Tuesday afternoon cordial, but devolved into a circus of corruption allegations. When the board approved a concept map in July that divided up Lompoc, many north county residents grumbled that the south county supervisors railroaded new district lines. But a new map put forward by first district supervisor Salud Carbajal tried to remedy that. Carbajal’s map put the entire city of Lompoc into the fourth district. This fixed a key complaint by fourth district supervisor Joni Gray and fifth district supervisor Steve Lavagnino on the map approved on July 12. “Supervisor Carbajal, I’d like to start by hugging you, but that’s just inappropriate,” Gray said.

Density a big issue for city BY ELISE CLEMENTS

The application of a simple equation would increase the amount of affordable housing in Santa Barbara, said Detlev Peikert, chair of the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Smaller unit size, fewer number of parking spaces, and increased density add up to lower rents, said Peikert in a presentation to the City Council yesterday. “We worked to demonstrate how we can make affordable housing for our workers, in dense, attractive housing,” he said.

He said the district needs to work on developing an infrastructure first, possibly using successful programs like Santa Barbara High’s Multimedia Arts and Design Academy. “We have some programs but every kid needs that kind of experience,” Cash said. “But the support network has to be there first.” The district will need to move its tech game forward by the 2014-15 year, when a new, computer-driven testing format called Smarter Balance supplants the current STAR testing.

goers. The proposed design would bring aesthetic improvements to the building, said Derek Westen, who serves on company’s board. He criticized the current diminutive staircase and theater front. “It’s really very, very awkward,” he said. “It already doesn’t look like a theater because of the cars parked in front.” Red curbing in front of the landing would also be a feature of the project. The design is controversial because these adjustments would push the existing sidewalk forward, causing a bulb out in front of the theater. It would also pos-

sibly compromise up to seven parking spots in a highly used area. Parking was another concern voiced by multiple councilmembers. Many felt that more options needed to be explored. Councilman Frank Hotchkiss was also concerned that skateboarders might be attracted to the landings ample ramp. He was assured bumps on the railing would decrease the magnetism of ramps to recreational users. Mayor Helene Schneider voiced approval for the project and what it could do to bolster an important community resource.

The National Weather Service has issued excessive heat warnings for Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois, Iowa and Arizona. Heat advisories were issued for an additional seven surrounding states. High temperatures Tuesday afternoon are expected to be 95 to 100 in most areas east of the Mississippi River, while highs of 85 to 95 are expected in the mountains, along the central and eastern Gulf Coast and in Florida, The Weather Channel's Kevin Roth said.

Thai temple practices death

For those facing a run of bad luck and wanting to start things over, one Thai temple has an unusual solution: "rehearse" death with a mock funeral, including lying down in a coffin. Pram Manee temple in Nakorn Nayok province, 107 km northeast of Bangkok, holds two of the rituals every day: at exactly 9:09 a.m. and 1:09 p.m., since the number nine is believed by Thais to bring good luck. Participants in a recent ritual stood in front of their designated coffins, holding flowers and praying for bad luck to go away, then asked to receive good luck. All had paid 180 baht ($6) for the flowers, a white sheet and "merit set" -- a collection of necessities sometimes including toothpaste, toothbrushes and food -- to be offered to monks, and the promise of a better life.

Katy Perry makes history

Pop princess Katy Perry's "Teenage Dream" reached a new height this week as "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" became the album's fifth single to reach the top of Billboard's pop songs chart, marking the first time any album has amassed such a feat in its 19-year history. If Perry's newest No. 1 also lands atop the Hot 100 later this week, "Teenage Dream" will be the only album other than Michael Jackson's "Bad" to generate five separate No. 1s. "Bad" was released in 1987, before Billboard began issuing the pop song chart. Prior to "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" reaching No. 1, "Teenage Dream" was tied with Justin Timberlake's "FutureSex/LoveSounds" (2006-07) and Lady Gaga's "The Fame" (2009) which both had four singles snag the top spot.

FOR PET’S SAKE

A day to celebrate ... a day to reflect It’s hard to believe that a mere 50 years ago—on August 2, 1961 at 4:28 pm, to be exact—a tiny baby with a huge set of lungs was ushered into this world at Cottage Hospital in Santa Barbara. This tiny baby had grown so big in her mama’s womb that friends and family were convinced she was a boy, so she spent the first year of her life swaddled in blue onesies and overalls. Her blue baby blanket still KAREN LEE sits, wrapped in protective plastic, in STEVENS her closet. As she grew, this little girl did all the normal things that little girls her age were supposed to do: She played with dolls. She toted her “baby� Susie everywhere she went. She dressed up in frilly outfits with white lace socks and black patent leather shoes. She even climbed trees and body surfed in the Pacific Ocean. She was a true Southern California girl. Like most children, she had a natural curiosity toward animals. Cats, dogs, chickens, horses, chinchillas, hamsters

and, oh yes, a spider monkey named Pancha – this little girl loved them all. She loved them so much, in fact, that she became a Junior Volunteer at the Santa Barbara Zoo and later, a volunteer at the Santa Barbara Humane Society, where she spent many a blissful Saturday afternoon cleaning litter boxes and petting the adoptable kitties. This little girl, if you haven’t already guessed, was me. And, if you’ve been reading my column for awhile, it should come as no surprise that I grew up to become an outspoken advocate for the humane treatment of animals. In 1997, I started All for Animals which, in those days, was a “pet� project of sorts – an online resource for animal lovers. The site listed all the animal rescue groups, pet stores, veterinarians, and dog friendly parks in Santa Barbara, as well as photos and descriptions of adoptable cats, dogs and bunnies at local shelters. Since those humble beginnings when my office was a rusty 10’ x 12’ patio room, my internet connection was dialup, and my browser of choice was Netscape, I have been dedicated to making the world a better place for animals and humans alike. All for Animals has certainly evolved over the years. After officially incorporating as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organiza-

tion in 2002, we set our sights on developing a humane education program that would teach children to be kinder and more respectful to animals. Today, our “Compassion for Critters� program reaches hundreds of elementary school children every year and gives them an opportunity – through reading, storytelling and interaction with wellbehaved dogs and other critters – to create safe and satisfying relationships with animals that will last a lifetime. And now, I’m thrilled to announce our latest project – our forthcoming children’s book entitled “Animals Have Feelings, Too!� Through the generosity of the Wendy P. McCaw Foundation, next month, we will be publishing this entertaining and educational book for kids! It is our goal to be able to give a copy of our book to every child, ages 47, who attends one of our “Compassion for Critters� presentations at their school. To accomplish this goal, we need your help. Whether you’re an individual or a family, a small business or a large corporation, please consider sponsoring one child, one classroom, one grade or an entire school with a financial contribution and help our children blossom into adults who are caring and responsiSee PETS, page 7

DENSITY

tects cumulatively spent $300,000 worth of donated time to create a series of hypothetical projects that could demonstrate proposed changes to the General Plan. Yesterday they presented their findings to the council. High density housing is likely to be a key issue in the November City Council election. “I’m really impressed with all the effort put in,” said Councilman Randy Rowse. “This was very helpful.” The presentation consisted of multiple projects in key areas of the city: De la Vina at Figueroa streets, Cota at Salsipuedes streets, and Milpas at Ortega streets. The projects followed existing height requirements, included 10 to 15 percent open space, and architectural and landscaping features to boost attractiveness. Projects included apartments and condos and rent prices ranged from about $1,200 to $2,300. Using the proposed guidelines would reduce rent by as much as $1,000 a month in some cases. “Are we only going to provide for Rolls-Royce owners?” asked Santa Barbara resident Mickey Flacks. If things remain as they are, she said she foresees a

Santa Barbara devoid of Chevys and Toyotas. About 45,000 people commute to work daily in Santa Barbara said Peikert. “(If changes are adopted) you don’t end up with a monoculture,” he said. “You want to provide a range so that you can add diversity downtown.” Some designs also featured the inclusion of solar panels and creative solutions to fit parking. “Adoption of a sound General Plan is important to our community,” said Peikert. “Perhaps first and foremost, it needs to address the concerns of the future.” Reducing the amount of cars on the road by increasing housing close to downtown and public transportation would be a prescient measure in light of issues such as global warming and increasing unviability of oil dependency. Not everyone present saw the presentation in such a positive light. The most vocal skepticism directed at the project came from Councilwoman Michael Self. “I don’t call it social justice to degrade Santa Barbara by doing these high density projects,” said Self. She said she had reservations to the city being “experimented on.” “Where has density increased and

housing prices decreased?” Self queried. “It’s a call into the wild.” The councilwoman said she has been trying to get an example from staff for the past year. Councilman Dale Francisco said that he would like to see more data, but Councilman Harwood “Bendy” White indicated that where figures are always nice, it is now time to move ahead. The council will meet to discuss such changes to the General Plan in September. “We could spend another five years and three million on Plan SB, but eventually we’re going to have to come forward and make a decision,” he said. He also said that Peikert’s formula is a good option, even if it doesn’t guarantee affordable living. “If you give the developer the option of doing that,” said White, “you are at least giving the free market a chance to run with that.” Still, Francisco questioned whether such housing is necessary in Santa Barbara. He mentioned other projects he deems similar that have not been popular. The city, he said, has no idea who the work force is in Santa Barbara or the reasons why they might commute. “Who is our workforce?” questioned Francisco. “What do they want?”

He argued that having political contributors submit district maps questions the legitimacy of the county’s redistricting process. “To me, this process is tainted,” Lavagnino said. Lavagnino argued that the board should avoid drawing up district lines and instead leave it to an independent panel. County redistricting rules state that if the supervisors haven’t agreed on new district lines before November 1, the task goes to a panel composed of the district attorney, clerk recorder, and the superintendent of schools. Some citizens had advocated this approach during public comment, but second district

said the district is already mapping out how to administer the state-mandated test. Sitting to Cash’s left, Deputy Superintendent Eric Smith was happy to say the district managed to fill an anticipated $10 million deficit – just. After years of sharp cuts necessitated by the state’s worsening financial condition, Smith said the district was able to close its budget gap this year, albeit aided by a one-time $6 million savings by unifying the former elementary and secondary districts earlier this year. And administrators still haven’t relaxed over the final state budget approved by Gov. Jerry Brown. Smith said in case the state’s revenue estimates were optimistic, the district already negotiated 10 furlough days with teachers and staff members. “We’re in a really good place,” Smith said. “But we hope we don’t have to trigger any of

supervisor Janet Wolf dismissed those suggestions, saying the board would be shirking its responsibility if they left the matter to the panel. Lavagnino didn’t see it that way. “There’s an easy out for us,” Lavagnino said. “And I don’t think it’s abdicating our responsibility.” Carbajal mocked Lavagnino’s comment, saying that the new map had nothing to do with the map approved in July and Lavagnino might have carried more weight if he’d made it at the start of the redistricting process and not sounded like a conspiracy theory. “While you continue to look for the killer of JFK, I will tell you that the map that I put forward has nothing to do with this so-called map that we were initially looking at,” Carbajal said. Second district supervisor Janet Wolf called Lavagnino’s comments “disappointing” and, “a new low.” She pointed out that Relles’ map hadn’t been the first choice and Lavagnino’s statements would have a chilling effect on members of the public coming forward. “I think the comments today are so insulting on so many levels, I’m actually speechless,” Wolf said. The supervisors voted in the end to approve Carbajal’s map as a conceptual basis for new district lines. Another hearing is scheduled for August 9.

the furlough days.” Ann Peak, personal analyst for certified staff, said the district was able to hire back 133 instructors and school administrators, including 113 who were given pink slips last school year. Peak said the district was also able to bring back one person who was laid off in 2009. But Smith said the district is still only able to take in 80 cents for every dollar it receives from the state. To make matters worse, Cash said about 40 percent of the money owed by the state to the district comes as much as a school year late. Sawaske said class sizes, which have been slowly growing as the district, are going to stand pat this year. She said K-3 classes average between 25 and 26 students per classroom, grades 4-6 about 30 students, and 7-12 between 33 and 35. Smith and Cash said returning to smaller class sizes – K-3 classes used to be limited to 20 students – isn’t likely unless the state and district’s financial situations improve drastically.

HOROSCOPES by Eugenia Last

Happy Birthday: You can learn a lot if you watch how other people do things. Anger or being too proud to admit a mistake will be your downfall. You have to be willing to acknowledge what's working and what isn't to get ahead. Love is highlighted, and a favorable change is heading your way. Your numbers are 7, 18, 26, 29, 30, 32, 45. ARIES (March 21-April 19): You need a pick-me-up. Take a spa day or spend time with someone you love. Shop for a new look or get involved in a hobby that stimulates your mind. Voice your opinion, but don't force it on others. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): You will pick up information if you discuss your plans with someone knowledgeable. A window of opportunity will lead to a new way of doing things and an interesting alternative to your current lifestyle. Don't let love stop you from heading down the path best suited to you. 5 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Love is highlighted. A serious relationship can develop if you are single or improve if you are already a couple. Make sure you are doing your share. Disappointment may develop if someone expects more than you are prepared to offer. 2 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Make changes at home that will please you and others. Stabilize any relationship that is important by laying down ground rules and compromising when necessary. Give-and-take will make your life easier. Arguments will be a waste of time. 4 stars

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't let your pride stand in the way of getting what you want or need. A change in how you live or do things at home can help out financially. A false impression of how much you have will be your downfall. 4 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Do something to update your image or add to your qualifications. Check out an industry that interests you to decide whether you want to make a change. The economy is changing, and you must strive to secure your place in the work force. 3 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Nothing will be easy or stable when dealing with friends, relatives or neighbors. Don't count on anyone or anything, and you will do OK. Put what you need into play by doing the work yourself and defending your position and your reason for your actions. 2 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): You will instinctively know what will work and what won't. Invest in your ideas. Selfimprovement projects will pay off, enabling you to diversify. Communication will be your strong point, so speak up. Love is on the rise. 3 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Do your research before you take on responsibilities that don't really belong to you. It's important to keep your time open for the projects, people and things you truly want to do. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): You'll get what you want if you use a little pressure. If you share your thoughts, everyone who counts will come on board and help you make your plans pan out. Career objectives will take precedence over playtime, so do your best to close a deal. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Personal encounters will cause confusion. You'll have to separate your emotions from what's going on to recognize who is being straight with you and who isn't. Avoid overindulgence and overspending. 3 stars Easy Sudoku Puzzles, Book 11
