Six years ago, Marty Blum and Iya Falcone barely talked to each other, much less got along. They feuded publicly over city policy and privately over personality and style. Blum was the mayor and Falcone wanted one day to be mayor. The battle damaged both of them. Blum lost the support of public safety unions, who were solidly in Falcone’s corner. But Falcone fell out of favor with the Service Employees International Union and progressive City Councilman Das Williams. But in a strange twist of political irony, the two officials who worked so hard to hurt one another in 2005, are now allies in 2011 – battling together in unison against a conservative council majority that they feel is out of touch. Blum on Wednesday formally decided to support Falcone in a move that says a lot about how united liberal and moderate Democrats are in taking back power at City Hall. Falcone, in her bid for another term at City Hall, has emerged as a coalitionbuilder among Democrats.
Liberal and moderates have banded together behind the once-controversial Falcone and put their own political differences aside in their quest to oust conservative incumbents Dale Francisco, Michael Self and Randy Rowse. Now what the feuding the Dems did among themselves in 2005 seems pettyas they have watched a conservativemajority seize the power. “Iya is a proven leader,” said state Assemblyman Das Williams. “She’s just the right person to take on the Tea Party conservatives at City Hall.” Blum said Falcone has always been “a good thinker.” “Iya certainly knows the ins-and-outs of city government,” Blum said. “If you were on the City Council, you would want Iya in you corner.” Falcone served two terms on the City Council before backing out of a planned run for mayor after she failed to gather 100 signatures to qualify for the ballot. Falcone’s husband Vince died right before the start of the mayoral campaign, and Falcone said she just needed a break from the politics and some time to heal. After Blum and Falcone left office in 2009, and Williams left to serve in the

state Assembly in 2010, conservatives have taken power at City Hall. The conservatives have focused more on curbing the homeless problem, reducing the number of high-density housing projects in the city, and eliminating medicinal marijuana dispensaries in the city. “We need three candidates who reflect our values in Santa Barbara,” Blum said. “I don’t think the conservative incumbents reflect Santa Barbara’s values.” Falcone said she is honored to have Blum’s support. The problems in the past were much ado about nothing, she said. “Whatever was there in the past has long been over,” Falcone said. “We are on the same team and we share the same values. Marty is an important person in this community.” Falcone said she and Blum are both “grown-ups” who know how to forgive and move on. “I think peace is a beautiful thing,” Falcone said. “I am very glad for all the support and that we can mend whatever differences we may have had in the past. I want to see the whole community move together in the future. I am all about building bridges and bringing people See FALCONE, page 5
City to debate plaza DAILY SOUND / Nick Tonkin Santa Barbara is considering multimillion dollar changes to De La Guerra Plaza.

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT
As the city ponders a $2.2 million overhaul of De La Guerra Plaza, most Santa Barbara residents said the city should leave the look of the iconic area alone. “It seems like it’s still old Santa Barbara,” Santa Barbara resident Billy Austin said.
“Why should they do anything different?” For more than six years, the city has been planning to revamp the street and lawn that has served as the focal point of celebrations and demonstrations for decades. The Santa Barbara Planning Commission will talk about the matter at today’s 1 p.m. meeting. See PLAZA, page 10

NEWS IN BRIEF
Beauty And The Beefs CULTURE SHLOCK
House defeats spending bill
(Reuters) - The U.S. House of Representatives unexpectedly defeated a bill that would fund the federal government past September 30 on Wednesday as dozens of Republicans broke with their party to push for deeper spending cuts. The unexpected outcome was an embarrassment for House Republican leaders who have at times struggled to rein in a conservative wing that remains closely allied with the anti-spending Tea Party movement. "This is a democracy. This is the sausage factory," said Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers, who sponsored the bill. The vote could further rattle consumers and investors who have been unnerved by the high-stakes budget battle that has played out in Washington this year. Congress pushed the government to the brink of a shutdown in April and the edge of default in August.
Georgia executes Troy Davis
(Reuters) - The state of Georgia executed convicted murderer Troy Davis on Wednesday in a case that drew international attention because of claims by his advocates that he may have been innocent. Davis, convicted of the 1989 killing of a police officer, was put to death by lethal injection at 11.08 local time Thursday at a prison in central Georgia after the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear a final appeal, a prison official said. The case has attracted international attention and an online protest that has accumulated nearly a million signatures because of doubts expressed in some quarters over whether he killed police officer Mark MacPhail in 1989.
Whitman possible CFO at HP
(Reuters) - Hewlett-Packard Co's board convened on Wednesday to consider ousting Chief Executive Officer Leo Apotheker after less than a year on the job and replacing him temporarily with former eBay CEO Meg Whitman, a source familiar with the matter said. HP's board of directors -- facing shareholder lawsuits and intensifying criticism from investors -- is thrashing out a host of issues, including whether to name Whitman as the interim CEO, the source told Reuters, The storied Silicon Valley giant is fighting to restore its crumbling credibility. During his 11-month tenure, Apotheker slashed sales forecasts repeatedly, backtracked on promises to integrate Palm's webOS software into devices, and struggled to halt a 50 percent plunge in the share price. No decisions have yet been made about leadership, the source said on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.

The criticism of the Q&A portion Naturally, many people couldn't care is usually that the contestants offer up
bland, vapid responses designed to win easy applause. But the critics are mostly missing the point. The questions aren't designed to elicit the candidates' deep thoughts on poverty, global warming or the prospects for a peaceful resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In fact, the goal is the exact opposite - it's to find out how well the candidates can take serious questions on complex issues with no easy answers, and then go ahead and give us easy answers anyway (note: this is also an important skill for parents of young children). By this measure, Miss Angola performed well, responding to a question about what part of her appearance the statuesque beauty would like to change by responding that - surprise! - she's pleased with how she looks now. Then, much like a figure skater throwing an extra triple axel into a routine for added points, she also managed to work in meaningless references to "character" and "inner beauty." But my favorite part of the Q&A involved Miss China, who was asked whether countries should allow nude sunbathing. I wasn't so much taken by her answer, which involved standard pap about the importance of respecting cultural differences. No, I was more interested in imagining Miss Colombia, standing in the background, seething and thinking to herself, "Dammit, I would have nailed that one!"

“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Disliked NEWS
BY ELISE CLEMENTS
DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER
In 1983, on the brink of being promoted to Colonel and eventually gaining an advanced position as a General, Claude Lassen was scooted into retirement because he is gay. Lassen had served 20 years, two in Vietnam during the war, but the U.S. Military’s long history of forbidding gays to serve in the military bungled his blossoming military career. “I was a good officer. I got several medals,” Lassen said. “When I was on active duty I did my job very well. When I was asked questions about why I wasn’t married I said I was married to the service.” Yet after waiting a year to get the promotion he was promised, and instead being shuttled into a dead end job, Lassen concluded that his secret second life had been exposed. But following the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” on Tuesday, gays and bisexuals no longer have to live in the

closet to serve under the flag. “It means that they don’t have to hide, don’t have to lie,” Lassen said. “They can go on doing the professional job that they’re doing. It speaks to the fact that people should not be discriminated against based on race, gender, or sexual orientation.“ “Don’t ask, don’t tell” was instituted in 1993 under the Clinton administration. It was a compromise formed from a botched attempt to repeal strict anti-gay policy stating homosexuality was incompatible with military service. In the end, the “don’t ask” part of the deal was scant comfort for non-heterosexuals. “When there’s such a large institutional policy against gay and bisexual people it sends a message,” said Joshua Moon Johnson, director of LGBT resources at The Resource Center for Gender and Sexual Diversity at UCSB. He said that in his position he works with veterans and students currently enlisted. He said that campus life has
been difficult for those with both a military identity and a non-heterosexual identity because of the conflict between the two identities. “A lot of pressure was on them,” he said. While in the military some suffered harassment and the difficulty of finding a partner. Harassment, he said, went unpunished because to report it could ultimately lead to the victim being discharged. Finding and keeping a partner could be difficult when you aren’t allowed to be open, he said. The history of suppression by the military also causes conflict among gays who serve or might be interested, Johnson said. “As much as they want to support their country it also causes a lot of conflict with who they are,” he said. Lassen related his own experience of discovering his homosexuality and struggling with it while serving. He didn’t know he was gay until a series of double dates all ended with him more See MILITARY, page 7
since 2005. It’s the Democratic machine, he said, that has changed in their quest for control of City Hall. “The local Democratic machine is about one thing and that is about winning,” Francisco said. “That’s all that is important to them. I feel, by the statements that I have read by Daraka and Das, that all they care about is having power. That’s what is important to them and Iya is the chosen candidate that they will line up behind.” Williams and Blum said their support
of Falcone is about the both of them wanting what’s best for Santa Barbara. “She has a proven track record for helping public safety and helping the middle- and working class, Williams said. “Iya has the experience we need at a tough time.” Blum said she knows Falcone will always put the city’s best interest first. “She and I had some hard times, but it’s all over now,” Blum said. “People do change. People do grow.”

Johnson said that it would be hard for him to determine how many such students attend UCSB partially because they might be afraid of being seen when entering the center decked with rainbow banners dangling from it’s windows. “Just coming into this space carries a lot of weight for people,” he said. “That can be risky.” Johnson’s own story is unique. He is the only of three siblings who has not yet
joined the military, and his father and grandfather both served. But for him serving has never been an option. “It’s been a trend in my family to join in the late twenties,” he said. “I have seven months before I turn 30. Whether I’m going to join the military as director of LGBT at the center is a question.” He said he has reservations about the military that extends beyond the previous limitation against serving openly, See JOHNSON, page 10
