Judge releases long-time city employee on recognizance BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

The case against the Santa Barbara Police Department employee accused of stealing more than $100,000 in parking funds took a new twist yesterday, when prosecutors accused her of also destroying parking tickets. Karen Flores could face an additional two years in prison for allegedly destroying four park-

ing tickets, authorities said on Tuesday. She is also accused of allegedly embezzling $100,000 from city parking citation funds. Sources told The Daily Sound that the discrepancy in parking ticket funds actually totals $1.5 million. Flores, Santa Barbara Police Department business manager, was arrested on Friday.

SMART METER

SMACKDOWN City Council split on environmental impacts BY JOSHUA MOLINA DAILY SOUND EDITOR

The debate over Smart Meters made its way to Santa Barbara City Hall on Tuesday, in an emotionally charged meeting. The council voted 4-2 to send a letter to the California Public Utilities Commission expressing concerns about a lack of information and public outreach about Smart Meters. But the council stopped short of going on record in support of a free opt-out program for residents who oppose the meters. Only councilmembers Michael Self

and Dale Francisco supported the freeopt program. The controversy centers around Southern California Edison’s plan to install so-called Smart Meters at homes throughout California. Edison serves Santa Barbara. “The real issue is why do people have fears and concerns about a piece of equipment brought to their home to conserve energy,” said Mayor Helene Schneider. “The real reason behind all of this is to reduce the amount of electricity use.” Edison says Smart Meters are more See METERS, page 16

A spoonful of grant money to sweeten the deal wasn’t enough. The Santa Barbara City Council still can’t get over the taste of bulb outs on city streets. After two hours of debate, the council on Tuesday rejected a proposal by city staff to build bulb outs to improve the intersection of Figueroa and De La Vina Streets. The intersection saw 12 collisions – one of them fatal — during three years. With funding to improve conditions scarce, city staff secured $326,300 in federal grant money.

Bulb outs have been a hot-button issue for the past few years. Councilwoman Michael self won a seat on the council in 2009 largely because of her opposition to bulb outs and other traffic calming devices. Some argue that bulb outs create unnecessary impediments to traffic, tamper with aesthetics, and potentially pose safety problems. Those in favor view bulb outs as necessary safety measures. The idea is to extend the curb at high-risk intersections, giving pedestrians a safer right of way

Montecito Barbers reopens after fire BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

Montecito Barbers is back in the old shop just a year and a month after a fire raged through the iconic Coast Village Road barbershop. Matt Sanchez, manager and son of founder Bob Sanchez, is happy to be back to cutting hair in his old haunt. “It’s really exciting,” Sanchez said. “So many people have stopped by to say hi.” A fire that started in Xanadu Bakery burned down most of the shop last July and until this week, the Sanchez family has been working out of a temporary shop on the other side of the building. While there’s still a few mirrors, pictures, and a vintage television set needing to be replaced, anyone walking in wouldn’t know today is the shop’s first official day back in business. The walls are bright and white, magazines are strewn across the waiting chairs, and the classic barber chairs have been reupholstered. Though they had the opportunity to change the shop, Sanchez said he wanted to stick with tradition and kept the old look. “I can’t see changing something that’s worked,” Sanchez said. Tradition means a lot to the Sanchez family. There’s more than 40 years of history in the barbershop, which has been in its current spot at 1028 Coast Village Road since 1966. “We’ve got three generations working here,” Sanchez said. Tradition is also what keeps the customers

NEWS IN BRIEF

Fed promises to keep rates low

The Federal Reserve on Tuesday took the unprecedented step of promising to keep interest rates near zero for at least two more years and said it would consider further steps to help growth, sparking a rebound in stocks. The Fed painted a gloomy picture, saying that U.S. economic growth was proving considerably weaker than expected, inflation should remain contained for the foreseeable and unemployment, currently at 9.1 percent, would come down only gradually. An unusually divided central bank pledged to hold benchmark rates at rock-bottom lows until mid 2013, and opened the door to other tools to support growth. The announcement demonstrated just how long the central bank expects it will take before a flagging economy can gather significant momentum. “The statement was extremely negative in its outlook on the economy,” said Omer Esiner, chief markets analyst at Commonwealth Foreign Exchange in Washington.

The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved a revised contract with the Deputy Sheriff’s Association – a move that will save the county’s gang unit and restore 12 sworn positions. The county will be able to save $1.7 million annually. That money will allow the county to keep a streamlined Gang Unit, Narcotics Team, Aviation Unit. “The money the members of the Deputy Sheriff’s Assocation gave up will go to the Sheriff’s Office budget, giving us the opportunity to salvage some of our most important functions, albeit at reduced levels,” said Sheriff Bill Brown, in a statement. The county also intends to add four custody deputy positions to expand the Santa Maria Branch Jail operations to seven nights a week. “Everyone who lives in Santa Barbara County owes the members of the Deputy Sheriff’s Association a great debt of gratitude,” Brown said. “They didn’t defer

their raise, they gave it up. That means the savings will be ongoing year after year. They were under no obligation to do this. They came to the table because they recognized public safety had been compromised as a result of the County’s dire financial situation.” In June, the Board of Supervisors approved sweeping cuts to the Sheriff’s Department, including slashing or pulling funds from 50 positions and axing the gang team. The county’s at the time voted to eliminate Gang Enforcement Team, which consisted of one deputy sergeant and three deputy sheriffs. Supervisors also voted to quash the CAL-MMET team – investigating Methamphetamine crimes – that was made up of two deputy sheriffs. The narcotics team will lose funding for four positions. The county had intended to cut back operating hours at the Santa Maria Jail to three days a week. Since 2007, the sheriff’s department has had its workforce sliced by 13 percent, or 92 positions, according to the release.

Wal-Mart’s Vudo now on iPad

Wal-Mart Stores Inc’s Vudu video-streaming service launches on Apple Inc’s iPad on Wednesday, but it doesn’t come with the type of app that’s common on the best-selling tablet computer. Wal-Mart said iPad users can now go to vudu.com to buy or rent 20,000 movies and TV episodes to watch instantly. Once bought or rented, the videos can be viewed online or through more than 300 devices including Internet-capable HDTVs, Blu-ray Disc players and the Sony’s PlayStation 3, Wal-Mart said. Such services often come with an app that lets iPad users access content directly from the tablet’s home screen. Wal-Mart said a Vudu icon can be put on the iPad home screen, but when users touch it, they will be taken to Vudu’s website to buy content.

Apple’s value a sign of times

Apple Inc briefly edged past Exxon Mobil Corp to become the most valuable U.S. company on Tuesday, displacing an old economy stalwart and heralding an era where technology holds sway. Although Apple slipped back to the No. 2 spot after the close, market watchers said it is simply a matter of time before the company that defined the smartphone and tablet markets with the iPhone and iPad ascends the top. The technology giant’s market value rose on Tuesday to $341.5 billion in severely choppy afternoon trading, just above Exxon’s $341.4 billion, even though the oil major’s annual revenue is four times that of Apple’s.

“The Mindset Lists of American History” by Tom McBride & Ron Nief c.2011, John Wiley & Sons, $19.95 / $23.95 Canada 261 pages

BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER THE BOOKWORM SEZ

Last week, something happened that hasn’t happened in you-don’t-knowhow-long ago. You got a letter. Hand-written on paper. Brought to your house in an envelope with a stamp. And it wasn’t asking for money, giving you doctor’s results, or telling you that garbage pick-up day got changed. It was from someone who was “thinking of you.” These days, a letter in the mail is something so rare that it makes you really notice. But in your mother’s day, sending letters was common and easier than making a phone call. In the new book “The Mindset List of American History by Tom McBride & Ron Nief, you’ll read about those and other generational markers. Sometimes, when you look at the state of the world today, you almost wish for a vacation back in time. But be careful what you ask for… As an 18-year-old in 1898, GreatGreat-Grandma had already seen many of her peers leave school before puberty. The lucky few who attended college became doctors, perhaps, in order to cure deadly diseases not yet identified, but overall, higher education was unlikely. Instead, people went to work. Unmarried women might find office employment, and the new QWERTY typewriter. They could type, but they couldn’t vote. Fast forward. Great-Grandpa, born in 1900, might have skipped high school to work twelve hour days, seven days a week in a factory. After four days, he’d have enough to buy a few groceries but times were improving: politicians had long been lobbying for national health care and automobiles were becoming a means of real transportation rather than just a hobby. Fast forward By the time Dad was born in 1939, he could count on zippers to keep his coat on and radio drama to make his heart pound. Upon graduation from high school, he’d seen scrap drives, victory gardens, and the invention of ballpoint pens, and though his parents

Cut back or quit? It’s your decision. We’ll help.

complained about tax withholding from their paychecks, they got a deal on his college tuition: it cost them a whopping $2,000 for four years’ matriculation. Fast forward. This years’ college freshman have probably never dialed a telephone. Computers have always been portable, TVs have always been flat, and “friend” is both verb and noun. For them, there’s always been Disneyland, MTV, and HIV. Fast forward – again? Nobody knows, but the authors take a guess… Okay, so maybe you don’t want that time machine after all. “The Mindset Lists of American History” is probably

more affordable anyhow. It’s surely more fun. Authors Tom McBride & Ron Nief have consolidated just about everything you’d find fascinating about pop-culture in the past 113 years, they’ve done it with lists and short narratives, and they’ve done it in one lively book. This is a jawdropping, yet lighthearted read that puts plenty of things into perspective, and I couldn’t put it down. If you’re a trivia fan, a historian, Boomer, or lover of unique knowledge, I think you’ll enjoy it, too. In fact, you’ll want to give “The Mindset Lists of American History” one thing: the letter “A.”

NEW YORK (Reuters) — Is it too late to buy gold? It soared to a record $1,700 an ounce Monday after the United States suffered its first-ever debt downgrade at the hands of Standard & Poor’s. With gold rising 30 percent this year and nearly 400 percent over the past decade, it’s reasonable to ask when the fever might break. In recent days it’s gone completely viral as the debt crisis plunged financial markets to the biggest losses in two years. “People who weren’t talking about it even six months ago are heavily interested in gold today,” says Frank Trotter, president of EverBank Direct in Jacksonville, Florida, which holds nearly $500 million worth of precious metals in the form of hard assets for clients. Gold purchases leaped to more than 18 million ounces over the past month — from 8.4 million for the entire year up to July, according to data from the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. People are betting gold will come through the present debt crisis shining. In the depths of the 2008 financial crisis, gold dropped by 20 percent — but the metal was hurt as the U.S. dollar became the safe haven of choice. In the debt showdown this year, the dollar has suffered and gold leaped.

THE BULLISH CASE

Financial adviser Jeffrey Sica of Sica Wealth Management in Morristown, New Jersey, says it’s not too late to profit from gold

fever — he sees 20 to 25 percent upside in the glittery stuff. “What we are seeing is the tip of the iceberg in terms of the downgrade,” says Sica, a selfdescribed stock market bear who forecast Standard & Poor’s downgrade in a blog post to clients back in March. He said gold’s value has grown due to central banks’ inability to contain the debt crisis. “The fundamentals to invest in gold have not changed,” argues William Rhind, managing director of ETF Securities, which manages $4.2 billion in exchange-traded fund assets. “The only thing that has changed is that investment case is stronger — the world’s best credit, the U.S. government — has been downgraded. It’s no longer as safe as it was.” Nor is gold overvalued at these levels, Rhind said, since it hit $873 in 1980. Adjusted for inflation, the equivalent would be just over $2,391 today. That’s about the level JP Morgan Chase told clients the spot gold prices could hit this year. It said in a note $2,500 per ounce is possible. OTHERS ARE SKEPTICAL

Among doubters, though, are people like Pat Dorsey, Morningstar’s former director of equity research and now vice chairman of Sanibel Captiva Trust Company, which has $500 million under management. “I’ve never been a fan of gold. I am in the camp of that thinks it generates no income and has no utility (like copper), so the valuation is See GOLD, page 16

Still, the safety of bulb outs could not be conclusively determined by the council, and even the appropriateness of grant money was questioned.

Facebook to boot prison accounts 8

NEWS

Wednesday, August 10, 2011

Daily Sound

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) — Facebook has begun closing the accounts of California prison inmates after a convicted child molester viewed the pages of his victim from behind bars, authorities and the social networking site said on Tuesday. Facebook has shut down the accounts of at least two prisoners and officials are working on identifying other accounts that had been accessed from behind bars, said the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. Though most prisoners in California do not have access to the Internet, they often log onto the Internet with contraband cell phones, despite an effort to crack down on the devices, corrections officials said. California corrections officials, who formally announced the partnership with Facebook on Monday, said they have received hundreds of complaints from victims who were contacted by prison inmates behind bars. They include the convicted child molester, who prison officials said viewed the Facebook and MySpace pages of his victim, then mailed her family some drawings of the girl, officials said. The victim was 10 years-old when she was molested and 17 when she was contacted by the offender, who had used the Web to learn how she wore her hair and her brand of clothes.

“Really, they’re just limited by their imagination, you’ve got high ranking gang members shot-calling, ordering crimes to be committed on their behalf,” California Department of Corrections spokeswoman Dana Toyama told Reuters. Palo Alto, California-based Facebook lets inmates use the website if they are located in a state that allows them to access the Internet. But since California prohibits inmates from using the Web, the company confirmed that it is working with state officials to remove them from Facebook. The policy will not apply to inmates who created an account before they were sentenced and have not used it while incarcerated. Facebook’s policies prohibit an individual other than the registered user from updating a Facebook account, which happens occasionally when an inmate asks a friend or family member to access their page. “We will disable accounts reported to us that are violating relevant U.S. laws or regulations, or inmate accounts that are updated by someone on the outside,” Facebook spokesman Andrew Noyes said in a statement. California has seen the number of contraband cell phones taken from inmates jump from 261 in 2006 to 10,760 last year, which shows the problem is increasing. “We’re on track to way surpass last year’s numbers,”

Tea Party faithful wonder if Rick Perry walks the walk

NEW YORK (Reuters) — Rick Perry has been widely touted as a Republican presidential candidate who could appeal Tea Party voters, but some in the anti-tax movement wonder if his record as Texas governor stacks up to his rhetoric. After all, they say, there are reasons to think he's a spendthrift. He once campaigned for Democrat Al Gore, reviled by the Tea Party for being Bill Clinton's vice president and for his campaigning on climate change, and he even spoke kindly about Hillary Clinton's health-

care reform efforts. Then there is the issue that he was once a Democrat.

Sect leader Jeffs gets life in jail

SAN ANGELO, Texas (Reuters) — Polygamist leader Warren Jeffs, who heads a breakaway Mormon sect, was sentenced to life in prison yesterday for sexually assaulting two underage girls he claimed as “spiritual” brides. The Texas jury of 10 women and two men deliberated for less than an hour before giving him a 99-year, or life, sentence for one charge and 20 years for a second — the maximum for both. The case against Jeffs and others stems from a raid on his sect’s Yearning for Zion Ranch in rural Texas in April 2008. Authorities took custody of some 400 children but returned them to their

ducted a 7-month investigation. Flores, a 22-year employee of the city, for a period of time led the investigation that ultimately led to her arrest. In addition to the one count of grand theft, Senior Deputy District Attorney Brian Cota also charged Flores with four misdemeanor counts of destroying a parking citation. Cota expressed confidence in the ability to obtain a conviction on all counts. “If we didn’t believe we could prove them we wouldn’t file the charges,” Cota said. Flores was scheduled to enter a plea on Tuesday, but her arraignment was delayed until Aug. 25 at the request of her attorney Dan Murphy. He declined to comment on the case. Judge Clifford Anderson released Flores on her own recognizance. Cota told the Daily Sound that Flores didn’t need to post bail. He said pretrial services determined the recommendation for recognizance. Basically factors for bail are flight risk and danger to the community. Additionally, with a case where restitution might be in order, the judge might prefer the defendant to not have to spend money on a bondsman, Cota added. Flores cannot leave the county or engage in any money handling employment. But she’s also barred from contacting police department employees, accessing her retirement account, or liquidating any of her assets without court approval. Flores allegedly admitted embezzling $100,000 from parking citation money, in a scandal that has rocked the Police Department. Cota said he had not been informed of

families after an investigation and DNA tests. Prosecutors said Jeffs, 55, “played a sick game of child molestation under the guise of religious ceremony.” He will serve his prison terms consecutively and is not eligible for parole until 2070. Jeffs was convicted last week of aggravated sexual assault on a child and sexual assault on a child in connection with two girls he “married” when they were 12 and 14 years old. He fathered a child with the older girl and was heard on audio recordings telling groups of teenage girls they would be “rejected by God” if they

refused his sexual advances. A crowd heckled Jeffs as he was put into a police car after the sentencing. “Do you still think you’re the prophet?” one woman yelled. Jeffs abused his position as leader of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints “to victimize children, to break up families and to satisfy his own personal appetites and desires,” Assistant Texas Attorney General Eric Nichols told the jury. Jeffs, who represented himself at trial, had argued in loud outbursts that the court was trampling on his religious rights by hearing the case.

Deputy Police Chief Frank Mannix speaks to reporters at last Fridayʼs press conference.

any $1.5 million discrepancy. “That number would be inconsistent with what we’ve been given so far in the investigation,” Cota said. Police spokesman Sgt. Lorenzo Duarte said the investigation had been handed over to the District Attorney’s office and that he is not commenting on the case. Flores faces up to three years for embezzlement with an extra year because of the amount stolen. The four misdemeanor charges of destroying a parking citation carry a sentence of up to six months each. The arrest is the result of a 7-month investigation started after the City Finance Department noticed discrepan-

cies between parking ticket revenues posted by the police department and the funds in the general ledger. Police said the money taken in from parking tickets is a complicated process. Tickets can be paid in person, by mail, or online. Delinquent tickets can double in price and money is often spread out over city, county and state agencies. No one knew the system better than Flores. City council member Frank Hotchkiss stood by the police department. “The council has every confidence in the police and even though this is really unfortunate, it should not be any kind of reflection on the rest of the force,” Hotchkiss said.

FROM PAGE 6 based on the opinions of other people,â&#x20AC;? Dorsey says. Others cite its volatility as a negative factor, since the gold price is affected by fast-money traders lured by the leverage of commodities contracts. The price can tumble just as quickly as it rises. Still, even some conservative managers recommend a small allocation in gold as part of a balanced portfolio. EverBankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Trotter puts his own account at 5 percent to 10 percent. HOW TO INVEST

Here are three ways to invest in gold: 1.Buy Funds. If you are looking for a way to invest in gold, one of the easiest ways to do it is to buy an exchange-traded fund, such as SPDR Gold Trust ETF, iShares Gold Trust or Market Vectors ETF Trust, which tracks gold miners. And there are ETFs that are tangentially linked to gold, such as ETFS Physical Platinum Shares along with ETF baskets of precious met-

als, such as Etfs Physical Precious Metals Basket Shares - which holds gold, silver, platinum and palladium. The advantage that ETFs have over mutual funds is that they are easier to trade and ETF costs are usually lower. But the downside of investing in a goldrelated ETF is that the gains are not always direct and can sometimes lag the rise in gold prices. The risk is that prices can rise and fall quickly. 2. Buy Stocks Another way to play gold is to go straight to the source - gold mines. While prices for physical gold are soaring, gold mining stocks have slumped. Winmill of the Midas Fund likes Freeport Mcmoran Copper and Gold, which is one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest mining companies. Yearto-date, the stock is up only about 5 percent, â&#x20AC;&#x153;even though revenues and earnings are exploding on the upside,â&#x20AC;? Winmill says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people are thinking the world is going in reverse, but global Gross Domestic Product growth - if you include emerging markets - is 7 percent. And a lot of that emerging markets growth has to

do with infrastructure build out which demands copper,â&#x20AC;? he argues. 3. Buy Hard Assets The upside of buying actual gold bars and ingots is that when the price of gold rises, the value of a gold block tracks the gains on an almost one-for-one basis, unlike other assets which only track the value. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People want to put their money into hard assets, which retain a value when currencies lose value,â&#x20AC;? says Tod Mcelhaney, president of LaSalle Futures Group in Chicago. But while physical gold has the most direct value, the downside is that it is also more difficult to offload should investors want to let go of the asset. One way to buy physical gold is Everbankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pooled Gold and Silver Accounts, which lets you to pool your investment with other investors. The advantage is that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to cough up huge sums - the minimum investment is $5,000 - nor do you have to pay storage, delivery or annual fees to stash your gold. The ideal investor? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Someone who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an apocalyptic view that they need to have it in back yard,â&#x20AC;? Trotter says.

BARBER

FROM PAGE 3 ing the Sanchezes get back on with their work. After the shop had been repaired, Sanchez said people turned out in droves to help put things back in place. And now Matt and his son Tim are both cutting hair, answering the phone, and chatting with customers as if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s any other day. People walk by the shop and poke their head in to say hi. One UPS delivery man with a shaved head jokes that the shop will lose business now that his hairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone. Another man comes in and drops a strong Joe Pesci impersonation. Both Tim and Matt said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business as usual. Montecito Barbers is more than just a place people come to have to have their hair done. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also the â&#x20AC;&#x153;greetersâ&#x20AC;? of the shopping center and a place to just hang out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody that comes in just grows friendships,â&#x20AC;? Sanchez said.

METERS

energy efficient and reliable. The meters are meant to cut back on energy usage by allowing consumers to see their usage. Consumers can track their energy usage more closely because it is displayed throughout the day. Some people, however, fear that the meters, which would be interconnected in webs called smart grids, pose threats to personal privacy. Others also worry that smart meters are harmful to peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health and can even cause cancer. The councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision was different from the countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vote last month. The county agreed to send a letter to the California Public Utilities Commission, which regulates both Southern California

FROM PAGE 1

DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli

A worker cleans up debris after a fire at Xanadu Bakery next door destroyed most of the shop last July.

Edison and Pacific Gas & Electric, requesting a no-cost smart meter opt-out program. Self also the opt-out measures â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have enough information,â&#x20AC;? Self said. â&#x20AC;&#x153; I am not big for experimenting in our community or the people in our community. I like to err on the side of caution. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think we are asking for too much not to be the guinea pig in the cage.â&#x20AC;? Councilman Dale Francisco agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Until we know more and until we have support for the community for this concept, there needs to be an opt-out provision,â&#x20AC;? Francisco said. PG&E currently has an opt-out program; it costs users an initial fee of $135 and a per month additional charge of $20. Many local environmental groups

support the Smart Meters, saying that they reduce energy consumption through better efficiencies. Schneider said that she was disappointed that there was not a better public outreach education plan, but that she is not convinced that there are legitimate health concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think Edison wakes up everyday saying how do we freak out our customer,â&#x20AC;? Schneider said. The cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter will state that many in the community would like an opt-out program, but not put the city on record as wanting such a program. Councilman Grant House said that fear of the unknown seemed to be driving most of the concerns. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see a public health issue, honestly,â&#x20AC;? House said.
