DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER

After a lengthy Santa Barbara City Council meeting yesterday and years of planning, developments to a Westside home at long last received approval. This is the second time the council has had to approve Heidi Ferguson’s designs for her home on West Mission Street following the appeal of her neighbor, Pamela Brandon. Ferguson’s brother, TJ Ferguson, was there to ask the council to uphold previous decisions of support for his sister’s project. Heidi, a widow with two kids, is planning to expand her home so her parents can move in. “I hope that you’re supportive of moving the neighborhood forward, “ said TJ Ferguson. “As you know See APPEAL, page 12

Zizzo’s sizzles in Goleta BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

In the face of economic uncertainty, Sue and Michael McDonald have transformed South County's only remaining drive-through coffee shop from a franchise branch into a mom-and-pop store. Zizzo’s Coffee, on Storke Road just past the Camino Real Marketplace in Goleta, has been going strong for more than two years. The McDonalds say the secret to their success is right in the shop’s motto, “Good Friends, Great Coffee.� They also credit advice and support from Women’s Economic Ventures, a nonprofit organization that provides training to aspiring small business owners. Sue, a licensed real estate agent, said she and her husband got their start a few years ago when they decided to do something different with their lives. Both have been self-admitted coffee lovers for many years and Sue said that a coffee house is one of the few places that can change someone’s mood within 15 minutes. “You give them that cup of coffee and they leave happy,� Sue said. That’s when the idea of a coffee house came to them. Being small business novices, the McDonalds’ sought out franchises to avoid having to, “go it alone.� They found their match in Zizzo’s Coffee, with its upscale granite-andwood look and surf theme. The company provided the McDonalds with two-week training and operating manuals and they were off. But after a year, the owner decided to sell and offered the McDonalds the chance to go independent. The prospect seemed daunting, but the McDonalds took it on. Still new at business, the McDonalds put their networking skills to the test, getting advice from all their businessowning friends. Sue also enrolled in Women’s Economic Ventures’ Self Employment Training course. While the McDonalds’ friends had plenty of business management advice for them, they didn’t find much encouragement. “Everyone we talked to said ‘don't do it,’� Sue laughed. But Sue said WEV gave plenty of sup-

port, even for someone with a business already in hand. The McDonalds had to hammer out a business plan. “It makes you think of everything,� Sue said. Things seemed tough at first. They had little experience managing employees and the drive-through meant having more people on hand during the morning and afternoon rushes. Sue herself admits she had a fear of customer service back then. She described herself in training as, “A deer in headlights,� a problem in an industry where customer service can make or break a shop. “People will go out of their way to go to a coffee house that has good customer service and not go back to one that doesn’t,� Sue said. But Sue found herself rising to the challenge, memorizing names, drink orders, and sharing her life with her customers. As testament, a Zizzo’s regular invited

the McDonalds to his wedding. Sue remembers him sharing the details of the courtship right up to the moment when the man walked in and told the McDonalds, “I proposed.� Sue recalled the moment after the man left with his coffee that day. “Michael turned to me and said ‘that'd why we do this business!’� Sue said. Running their own business has given the McDonalds more control over their lives and new opportunities to make their mark in Goleta. The shop holds bands, movie nights, and even a fireworks viewing party on the Fourth of July. “There’s just a lot of flexibility for what you can do for yourself or for the community,� Sue said.

No illegal drugs in Winehouse

Toxicology tests showed there was alcohol, but no illegal substances in British singer Amy Winehouse's system when she died last month aged 27, her spokesman said on Tuesday. "Toxicology results returned to the Winehouse family by authorities have confirmed that there were no illegal substances in Amy's system at the time of her death," a spokesman for Winehouse said. "Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death." The soul singer, famed for her beehive hairstyle and erratic behavior on and off stage, was found dead at her London home on July 23. The Grammy-winning star behind acclaimed album "Back to Black" had a history of drug and alcohol abuse, and it was widely assumed that they played a part in her death.

Once-a-century temblor rattles East Coast NEWS

WASHINGTON (Reuters) — strong earthquake rattled the East Coast on Tuesday, sending tremors as far as Canada, damaging well-known buildings in the nation’s capital and sending scared office workers into the streets. There were no reports of major damage or serious injuries from the 5.8 magnitude quake, which was centered in Mineral, Virginia, about 90 miles southwest of Washington, D.C. It was the largest quake in Virginia since 1897 and struck at a shallow depth, increasing its potency. The Pentagon, White House and U.S. Capitol were evacuated in Washington, and thousands of alarmed workers scurried into the streets up and down the East Coast as the lunchtime quake sent items crashing down from store and office shelves. “We were rocking,� said Larry Beach, who works at the U.S. Agency for International Development in downtown Washington. “It was definitely significant.� Federal workers were sent home early. Washington’s National Cathedral, host to state funerals and memorial services for many U.S. presidents, suffered damage with three spires in the central tower breaking off. The U.S. East Coast does not normally experience quakes as strong as Tuesday’s. The U.S. Geological Survey said the quake was of 5.8 magnitude, downgrading an earlier estimate if 5.9. Earthquakes of magnitude 5.5 can cause damage to buildings and other structures. In addition to the Virginia earthquake, there were nine tremors in the area immediately around Cokedale, Colorado, near the border of New Mexico. “Today we had two significant earthquakes shake large portions of the country,� said David Wald, a geophysicist with the USGS. “The Western earthquake, magnitude 5.3, within the last 24 hours, shook roughly four western states, primarily Colorado and New Mexico, but also parts of Kansas, Oklahoma as well as Texas -large states, but probably experienced by tens of thousands of people,� he said. U.S. CAPITOL SHAKEN

As if a rare strong earthquake were not enough, the East Coast was also on alert for powerful Hurricane Irene which was heading up from the Caribbean and could hit at the weekend.

Evacuated workers seek safety on the median strip in the middle of WashingtonĘźs New York Avenue in front of the U.S. Treasury Department building (L-Rear) yesterday, following a magnitude 5.9 earthquake struck the U.S. East Coast.

The quake made chandeliers sway in the U.S. Capitol and the floor of the U.S. Senate shook before staff headed for the exits. Some minor damage could be seen in the rotunda, under the dome of the Capitol. Bits of paint and plaster fell from high on the walls and chunks of plaster fell from above a doorway in the Capitolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Statuary Hall. The U.S. Congress is in recess so most members were away. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought at first somebody was shaking my chair and then I thought maybe it was a bomb,â&#x20AC;? said Senate aide Wendy Oscarson-Kirchner. Phone service was disrupted throughout the region as network congestion blocked cell phone users from making calls. There were also nuclear safety fears when one of four emergency diesel generators at the North Anna nuclear power plant in Virginia lost power due to the quake and automatically halted operations. The plant operated by Dominion Resources was designed to withstand an earthquake of magnitude up to 6.2, a company spokesman said. Dominion

reported no major damage to the facility. Three generators were needed to kick in and keep the reactorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; radioactive cores cool. A fourth diesel unit failed. In New York, the tremors prompted evacuations of courthouses, City Hall and halted work at the World Trade Center construction site. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What a spooky, strange feeling,â&#x20AC;? said Billy Simeonidis, the owner of BareBurger in Brooklyn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any control. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how they do it on the West Coast.â&#x20AC;? Control towers at John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City and Newark Liberty Airport in New Jersey were also evacuated, and flights were grounded briefly in Washington, Philadelphia and New York. The quake was felt as far away as Toronto. Buildings in Boston were evacuated, and some people who experienced swaying offices said they felt their stomachs turn. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We see we had shaking from Canada and Maine all the way down to Georgia and in Michigan and Illinois. So this was over about 20 states,â&#x20AC;? said the USGSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wald.

Stopping the violence

DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli

Officer Adrian Gutierrez speaks to a group about starting a neighborhood watch program. On the front page, Sharon Byrne attends the neighborhood watch meeting

For residents of the lower Eastside, it was a step forward. About 30 members of the Milpas community met for the first time Tuesday at Our Lady of Guadalupe church to discuss instituting a neighborhood watch program. Residents said they could no longer tolerate drug use, gang violence and other inappropriate behavior. “We want a better quality of life in the Milpas corridor, said Sharon Byrne, the executive director of the Milpas Community Association (MCA), which hosted the meeting. “We all deserve a healthy, clean, safe neighborhood.” The watch program is meant to focus mainly on six-to-eight particular blocks, mainly those bounded by Cacique, Voluntario, Punta Gorda and Salinas streets. Neighborhood watch signs, paid for by the MCA, will be posted throughout the area. And a clean-up is planned for Sept. 10 to unite neighbors who want the area they call home to feel – and look – safer. “We’re pouring a lot of resources into that neighborhood,” Byrne said. “If we

succeed, it will be great for the neighbors and great for the city.” Santa Barbara Police Officer Adrian Gutierrez has more than one vested interest in seeing the neighborhood watch program succeed. In the line of duty, Gutierrez has witnessed the violence of which the residents complain. And he is also a Milpas-area resident himself. Gutierrez, who listened to the attendees concerns, stressed the benefits of a neighborhood watch program, saying it can help serve as “the eyes and ears for the police.” “I’d like to see more communication amongst residents,” he said. And at last night’s meeting, communicate they did. As the meeting progressed, residents formed watch groups according to their streets of residence, shared contact information and made plans for future meetings. A male resident, who signed up to be part of the neighborhood watch, said that, although such actions are good, there are possibly other ways of dealing with the problem. “We need more preventative measures,” he said. “Children’s education starts in the home.” Two residents in attendance, a couple

who volunteered to be “block captains,” shared their desire to get involved after years of living in the area. They recall how a man was once stabbed in front of their home while they were eating dinner. “People are kind of scared,” they said. The MCA, which strives to make the area “a place where everyone can live, work, play, go to school, and prosper,” was formed in October of last year only days prior to the murder of George Ied. Syrian immigrant Ied was beaten to death, allegedly by four Eastside gang members, while walking to his Salinas Street home after work. In addition to the neighborhood watch program, the MCA has also seen that a police department gang suppression team start patrolling the area, along with gang intervention resources. The Association has also led marches for public safety, organized multiple neighborhood cleanups (including weekly graffiti removal), and made street lights more visible. One woman cited her firsthand experiences with carjacking and mugging as her reasons for attending the meeting. “It gets old,” she said, of the violence. “But this…this is good.”

LONDON (Reuters) - British youngsters are ditching Dickens, Shakespeare and Keats for Facebook and Twitter, with one in six failing to read a single book in a month, according to a survey. The poll, which questioned 18,141 children aged eight to 17, also showed less than half of youngsters choose to read a book outside of class at least once a month. Instead, children's exposure to the written word arises mostly from sending messages via texting, emails, and social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. The poll was carried out for British charity the National Literacy Trust. "Getting these children reading and helping them to love reading is the way to turn their lives around and give them new opportunities and aspirations," said Trust Director Jonathan Douglas in a statement.

Older pupils were "considerably more likely" to say they have not read any book in the past month than their younger counterparts, the survey showed. The trends it highlighted could have significant consequences for the children as they enter adulthood. "We are worried that they will grow up to be the 1 in 6 adults who struggle with literacy to the extent that they read to the level expected of an 11-year-old or below," Douglas said. With indications that reading frequency has a direct link to attainment, fresh approaches are "urgently needed" to encourage young people to read more, the charity said. It described Secretary for Education Michael Gove's proposals that all pupils aged 11 should read 50 books a year as a "huge challenge" in the light of the findings.

Initiate change. 4 stars VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Change will tempt you, but think twice before making a decision that cannot be reversed. Ulterior motives are apparent and can easily lead you down a slippery slope. Sit tight and let everyone else go first. 2 stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Communicate, network and drum up interest in whatever you are doing. Attend a seminar or trade show if it will help your cause.

LYBIA

FROM PAGE 4 hostile fire around the city center as darkness descended and looting broke out. Omar al-Ghirani, a spokesman for the rebels, said loyalist forces had fired seven Grad missiles at residential areas of the capital, causing people to flee their homes in panic. He told Reuters Gaddafi forces had also fired mortar rounds in the area of the Tripoli airport. The continued shooting suggested the six-month popular insurgency against Gaddafi, a maverick Arab nationalist who defied the West and kept an iron

FROM PAGE 1 a neighborhood is not made of buildings, it’s made of people.” The vote was identical to last year’s decision, 4 to 2, with Councilmembers Michael Self and Dale Francisco again apposing. Mayor Helene Schneider was absent. Both Francisco and Self had issue with the proposed structure’s neighborhood compatibility, and Francisco said that ultimately his decision was influenced by a process he said was “tainted.” Brandon argued that the size of the proposal – which would expand the garage, add a “granny flat”, and expand the main house – is too large and the materials too foreign. “How can anyone say that an industrial style, metal roofed, metal sided building is compatible with our neighborhood’s character?” she asked. Her supporters echoed her concerns. One, Miranda Livernas, was especially critical of the project’s look. “Some people like hairless Chihuahuas – I don’t know…” she said. “How are any of you going to stand it when people look at it and say ‘who authorized that?’” Others, including Self and Don Haws, a member of the Westside Neighborhood Watch Committee, said that the building clashed with the traditional style archi-

hand on his oil-exporting, country for four decades, had not completely triumphed yet. A spokesman for Gaddafi said the Libyan leader was ready to resist the rebels for months, or even years. "We will turn Libya into a volcano of lava and fire under the feet of the invaders and their treacherous agents," Moussa Ibrahim said, speaking by telephone to the pro-Gaddafi channels. Rebel leaders would not enjoy peace if they carried out plans to move to Tripoli from their headquarters in the eastern city of Benghazi, he said. But Gaddafi was already history in the eyes of the rebels and their political lead-

tecture of the neighborhood. Four associations back Brandon. But many, including councilman Frank Hotchkiss, said that the neighborhood displays an eclectic array of designs and will accommodate modern architecture. Some further argued that even once charming portions of the area were falling into decay. “Fifty percent of historical looking homes in the neighborhood are rotting, infested with termites, or illegal dwellings,” said neighbor Rick Hannay. “It’s time for a renaissance, that renaissance will include new materials.” Part of Brandon’s appeal centered around the decision of staff to allow the project to proceed to final approval regardless of “illegal plans” and “mishandling and bias” on behalf of staff. Brandon said that a protruding portion of an upper story was not in compliance with zoning laws after the project had passed preliminary approval. Staff withdrew the approval and then quickly reinstated it following the removal of this portion of the design. Staff felt that the provisions made were in compliance with what was set forth by the council in their initial decision to oppose Brandon’s appeal. They received advice from City Attorney Steve Wiley before proceeding. During Brandon’s half-hour slide show presentation she outlined what she

Another meeting was scheduled for Thursday in Istanbul. "It's over! Gaddafi is finished!" yelled a fighter over a din of celebratory gunfire across the Bab al-Aziziya compound, Gaddafi's sprawling citadel of power in the Libyan capital. Opinion was divided about Gaddafi's whereabouts. Colonel Ahmed Bani told Al-Arabiya TV that rebels believed Gaddafi was probably holed up in one of many hideouts in Tripoli. "It will take a long time to find him," he said.

Aurell is under investigation by California Fair Political Practices Commission following Ferguson’s complaint. Wiley said that his case should not be a factor to influence the council’s decision. Aurell counter attacked Brandon by questioning the sincerity of her appeal. He showed video of Brandon telling the Board in August last year that she would be ok with the plans if her privacy concerns were addressed. A window seven feet up was reduced in size, and the protruding second story portion eliminated – yet though Brandon attests that the privacy issues have been resolved, she still appealed the case.

Councilman Harwood “Bendy” White said he hopes that peace will be restored and the issue laid to rest. “I heard harsh words on both sides,” he said. “I would hope that now everyone can move forward.”
