Vietnam Moving Wall visits Santa Barbara BY NICK C. TONKIN


The names of the 58,256 Vietnam veterans, 98 of whom called Santa Barbara home, stretch out along the dark granitecolored wall across from Chase Palm Park. Docents guide visitors to names on parts of the Wall. Some people take pictures, some people stare, and some just cry. For 27 years, the Moving Wall, a traveling half-sized replica of the Vietnam Memorial, has moved across the United States, with the names of the fallen remembered by friends, families, and even complete strangers. Hap DeSimone, Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 218 president, remembered the first time he saw the original monument in Washington D.C. it overwhelmed him. He said he stood back in the trees for two-and-a-half hours before going near it. “It’s blatantly simplistic and absolutely gorgeous,” DeSimone said. Because of the surplus of Vietnam movies, DeSimone said the real impact of the war can get lost in Hollywood dramas. But the Moving Wall is a chance for people who’ve never experienced the real monument to learn about the memorial and talk with veterans. “They can have a real connection with what happened back then,” DeSimone said. For some people that’s already happening. Accountant Pamela Stanbrough stopped by with her daughter, wanting to see the memorial in person. She plans on bringing her son around for the flyby on Saturday. Stanbrough doesn’t know any names on the wall, but she says she knows a lot of veterans that don’t talk much about the war and hopes it’s a good chance to find out more. “You don’t know what everybody goes through,” Stanbrough said. But for some, the memorial is also a place to make new friends. A bullet in Quang Ngai South Vietnam forever separated Michael Dominguez from Carrie Dominguez, the six-month old daughter the U.S Marine would never meet. But at the Wall, Dominguez’s memory lives on between two strangers.

DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli Docents are available to guide visitors along the Moving Wall Vietnam Memorial.

Buellton resident Jim Stewart, himself a Vietnam veteran, made a charcoal rubbing of Dominguez’s name. Stewart never met Dominguez, but he did meet and eventually marry Dominguez’s widow and helped raise Carrie.

Buellton resident Jim Stewart, himself a Vietnam veteran, made a charcoal rubbing of Dominguez’s name. Stewart never met Dominguez, but he did meet and eventually marry Dominguez’s widow and helped raise Carrie. “She always called me dad,” Stewart said. Carrie died of breast cancer at the young age of 28. Stewart had kept in contact with her grandparents, Dominguez’s mother and father, and he decided to come down to the memorial to get a charcoal rubbing. As chance had it, Moving Wall docent

and fellow veteran Domingo Nunez recognized the name. A friend of Nunez’s that made commissioned frames had given him a framed rubbing of the Dominguez’s name from the original memorial in Washington D.C. Nunez didn’t know Dominguez, but he liked his friend’s work and he held on to the rubbing after she passed away. “I kept it in my place so when you’d walk in you’d always see it,” Nunez said. When Nunez saw Stewart with the name, he asked him about the name and learned Stewart’s story. The two began talking and Nunez offered to give the framed rubbing to Stewart, who accepted it. “I feel like it has a home,” Nunez said. Michael Dominguez died thousands of miles from home leaving his infant daughter nothing except his name. But here in Santa Barbara, that name brought two total strangers together. FYI: The memorial is on display 24 hours a day from now until Sunday at 323 Cabrillo Boulevard across from Chase Palm Park. A dedication ceremony along with a flyby of a Vietnam era aircraft will take place Saturday at noon. A candlelight vigil will be held Sunday at 6:30 p.m. Volunte--ers at the memorial are available at all times to help find names on the monument.


Democrat Nava backs Milpas activist Byrne

Daily Sound

Friday, September 30, 2011


In a move that further scrambles the Santa Barbara City Council election, former California Assemblyman Pedro Nava has backed Sharon Byrne for Santa Barbara City Council. Nava, a Democrat, and Byrne a conservative-leaning independent, bonded last year over their alliance against the proliferation of medicinal marijuana dispensaries on the Eastside. Now, Nava, a former prosecutor is throwing his political muscle behind Byrne — the only candidate he plans to endorse in the high-stakes race for City Council. “This campaign for City Council has a Democratic Party slate and a conservative/Republican party slate,” Nava told The Daily Sound. “City Council elections are supposed to be nonpartisan. You want to elect people whose only ambition is to serve the residents of the city and not be tied so heavily to a particularly party.”

Byrne said she is honored that a state-level Democrat would such as Nava would support her.

Nava’s support is the latest boost to Byrne’s campaign, as she tries to define her candidacy in a crowded field. Byrne jumped into the race late, infuriating conservatives who wanted her to stay out and run in two years. The conservative incumbents, Dale Francisco, Randy Rowse and Michael Self, and their political strategists, felt that she would take votes away from the conservative candidates. In the last year, Byrne has organized rallies, creek and street cleanups and protests, all in attempt to get City Hall to be more responsive to the needs to businesses and the residents on the Eastside.

DAILY SOUND FILE PHOTO Pedro Nava addresses constituents in front of the Santa Barbara Courthouse in this file photo.

As executive director of the Milpas Community Association, Byrne has emerged as the face of the Eastside, and she is hoping to propel that momentum into a City Council seat. “I have watched her for more than a year and I have been very impressed with how quickly she grasps issues and how passionate she is about bringing everybody to the table, whether is has to do with public safety or bringing compassionate solutions to the homeless. “She has proven that with passion, activism and dedication that she can pull people together who would normally feel powerless.” Byrne said she is honored that a state-level Democrat would such as Nava would support her. “I am really appreciative that he understands my nonpartisanship,” Byrne told The Daily Sound. “One thing that working with him has taught me is that what is right is not always popular and what is popular is not always right, and you just have to be strong enough to do the right thing. I appreciate him having a backbone and doing this.” Although Nava is a Democrat, he has fallen out of favor with the local party in recent years. His once-tight relationship with current 35th District Assemblyman Das Williams crumbled after Williams trounced Nava’s wife Susan Jordan in a bitter Democratic primary a year ago. The bad blood still runs deep and Nava never forgave the local Democratic Party’s support of Williams in that campaign. “It’s no secret that for the past few years, Nava has been publicly airing his vendetta against the Democrats on our City Council,” said Daraka Larimore-Hall, chairman of the Santa Barbara County Democratic Party. “This is just the next step of that Quixotic Vision. For a man who wouldn't have been elected three times without the work of a party organization, he certainly has changed his views.” Nava said one of Byrne’s strengths is that she does not come from a party. “The City Council should not be about political party,” Nava said. “It should be about the person who is most capable of embracing solutions to city problems, regardless of where they come from. No political party has all the right solutions to the issues facing Santa Barbara.” Nava, who many expect to challenge Democrat Hannah Beth-Jackson for a state senate seat, said Byrne is the one to beat on the City Council. “In looking at all of the candidates, it is very clear that Santa Barbara voters are confronted with two approved political party slates. I am endorsing Sharon and only Sharon because she doesn’t have that kind of party support.”

US sanctions militant leaders

The U.S. Treasury Department on Thursday announced sanctions on individuals it said were linked to militant groups in Afghanistan and Pakistan, but stopped short of declaring the Haqqani network, blamed for recent attacks on American targets, a terrorist group. "These financiers and facilitators provide the fuel for the Taliban, Haqqani Network and al-Qaeda to realize their violent aspirations," Treasury Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David Cohen said in a statement. As a result of the action, U.S. companies and individuals are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions with the targeted individuals and any assets they hold under U.S. jurisdiction are frozen, Treasury said.

Wall Street standoff continues

A standoff near Wall Street between protesters opposed to what they say is corporate greed and police may drag on into winter, with a march on police headquarters the likely next test of whether tensions escalate. The Occupy Wall Street movement was planning on Friday an unauthorized demonstration on the streets outside the New York City police center of operations. The group is adding complaints of excessive police force against protesters and police treatment of ethnic minorities and Muslims to its grievances list, which includes bank bailouts, foreclosures and high unemployment. Police have made about 100 arrests and used pepper spray, which they called a better alternative than night sticks to subdue those blocking traffic.

Banks seek CA mortgage deal

The largest U.S. banks, eager to get legal protection after widespread evidence emerged of foreclosure shortcuts, are trying to convince California to be part of a multi-state mortgage settlement and not pursue its own aggressive deal. Representatives of the banks met with California's attorney general, Kamala Harris, in Washington last Friday, in part to discuss concerns unique to California and determine whether the state is on board with a larger deal, according to people familiar with the talks. The banks see California, with its massive distressed mortgage market, as critical to a wider settlement, especially after New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman last month was removed from a small panel of AGs negotiating a deal. The leader of the state coalition said Schneiderman had "actively worked to undermine" the talks, after Schneiderman balked at releasing the banks from claims beyond the mortgage servicing and foreclosure problems that sparked the negotiations.

It’s all about the arts at candidates forum BY ELISE CLEMENTS


Taking a break from rigorous campaigning, candidates in the upcoming high-stakes Santa Barbara City Council race unwound during a unique Arts Collaborative forum yesterday. There are 10 candidates vying to fill three seats in the Nov. 8 election. The incumbents are Randy Rowse, Dale Francisco, and Michael Self. The Democratic party is backing Cathy Murillo, Iya Falcone, and Deborah Schwartz. Sharon Byrne, Jerry Mateo, Cruzito Cruz, and Sebastian Aldana are also running for office. All the candidates attended except for Falcone who was tending to a family emergency. The event was held at Santa Barbara Junior High’s Marjorie Luke Theatre. About 20 people attended. Cruz stole the show dressed from head to toe in traditional Native American attire. With a feather headdress towering on his head, he stood high above the rest of the candidates, and favored the audience with a jig and a performance on a drum he made himself. The other candidates also got to unwind and reveal a more personal side of themselves. Murillo has a theater arts degree,

Byrne used to provide free acting lessons to teenagers, and Matteo was talked out of a career as a trumpet player by parents who couldn’t afford it. Perhaps the biggest shock came from Rowse, who was a background dancer in a group called Crazy John and the Meteorites during his college days.

“It’s third world,” he said. “Most employers would be taken to task by OSHA if they had their employees working in there.”

Key issues were also addressed by the candidates, whose responses blended their concern with the arts with larger issues in the community. Graffiti was a topic heavily seized upon by the candidates, who were asked whether they believed it to be art. “If it’s inflicted upon us then it doesn’t feel like art,” said Byrne. She was backed by Rowse who said that graffiti has the potential to be art if it is not destroying property. Murillo and Cruz suggested that there needs to be a creative outlet, such as a graffiti wall, that would allow this form of creative expression in a controlled environment.

“It’s a formal expression of one’s soul, one’s social condition,” said Cruz. He advocated a “restorative model” to graffiti vandalism that would stick perpetrators with the task of cleaning it up themselves for free. Including more art in the classroom was brought up a number of times by various candidates. Dale Francisco said having a music program in his school growing up was “a life changing experience,” and that these types of programs need better funding. Rowse said that this type of self expansion could also translate into a societal benefit. “Those complete people become more productive people,” he said. Redevelopment Agency funds were another issue candidates were asked to address. Opinions ranged on the amount of funding the Granada received, and whether the 20 million in RDA funds set aside for a new Police Department headquarters is too much. Murillo said that the amount the Granada received was a shame because the tickets there are not affordable. But Francisco countered that although the project may have been expensive, the theater's contribution is important and the investment worth it. He also added that once completed, Victoria Hall might be a smaller venue See FORUM, page 16

Bank of America to begin charging debit card use fee

(Reuters) - Bank of America Corp plans to charge customers who use their debit cards to make purchases a $5 monthly fee beginning early next year, joining other banks scrambling for new sources of revenue. U.S. banks have been looking for ways to increase revenue as regulations introduced since the financial crisis limited the use of overdraft and other fees. The Dodd-Frank Act's Durbin amendment, due to go into effect on October 1, caps fees banks can charge merchants for processing debit card transactions at 21 cents per transaction from an average of 44 cents, potentially costing banks billions of dollars. Banks also face broader operational challenges as low interest rates and higher capital requirements hit profitability, and the sluggish economy depresses loan demand. Other large U.S. banks including Wells Fargo & Co, JPMorgan Chase & Co and SunTrust Banks Inc are testing or planning monthly debit card fees.

"The economics of offering a debit card have changed," Bank of America spokeswoman Anne Pace said on Thursday. Bank of America is the largest U.S. bank by assets. Senator Richard Durbin, architect of debit card interchange fee reform, bashed the proposed monthly fee. "Bank of America is trying to find new ways to pad their profits by sticking it to its customers," he said in a statement. It's overt, unfair, and I hope their customers have the final say." A FEE TOO FAR? Even before introduction of the Durbin amendment's rules on debit fees, Bank of America's fee income was dropping at its deposits and card services units. The bank's deposits unit reported fee income of $1 billion in the second quarter of 2011, down 34 percent from $1.5 billion a year before. Card services, which includes the bank's credit and debit card operations, reported fee income of $1.9 billion, down 23 percent from $2.5 billion in second quarter 2010.

Boeing workers busted in drug sweep at plant THURSDAY




8 PM



2I 8 PM






(Reuters) - Federal authorities on Thursday charged 37 current or former Boeing employees with selling or trying to buy painkillers and anti-anxiety drugs at a suburban Philadelphia plant that makes military aircraft. Following a four-year investigation, U.S. Attorney Zane David Memeger said 23 people were charged with selling the prescription painkiller Oxycontin and other illegal drugs and 14 were charged with attempted possession of various drugs. All but one of those charged is a current or former Boeing Co (BA.N) employee. Another person was expected to be arrested. "This investigation and prosecution focused not only on the sellers, but also on the users because of the critical role that these employees play in manufacturing military aircraft," Memeger told a news conference. Boeing employs more than 6,000 people at the Ridley Park plant, where the V-22 Osprey vertical take-off aircraft and H-47 Chinook helicopters are produced. The Osprey and Chinook are standard U.S. military aircraft used in Iraq and Afghanistan. There was no evidence that the integrity of

the work on any aircraft had been compromised, Memeger said. Boeing spokesman Damien Mills said the company cooperated with the investigation and made sure the employees under suspicion were in no position to compromise the safety or quality of the aircraft. All but one of those charged is a current or former Boeing employee. Another person was expected to be arrested as well. The employees charged in the case were suspended, Boeing said. FBI and Drug Enforcement Administration agents launched the raid early Thursday morning at the plant. The bust turned up the power painkiller Oxycontin as well as fentanyl, which is sold in lozenge form as Actiq. It also found the painkiller buprenorphine, which is sold as Suboxone, and the anti-anxiety drug alprazolam, sold as Xanax, officials said. Boeing spokesman Damien Mills said that in May 2006 some employees contacted the company's internal ethics group with suspicions there was illegal drug activity at the plant.

Facing uncertainty, Oshkosh pushes for auto worker deal

(Reuters) - Pressure is mounting on the United Auto Workers union as Oshkosh Corp plans to pull a key financial incentive off the table if thousands of workers in Wisconsin fail to ratify a new contract by midnight on Friday. Oshkosh has offered 3,000 UAW workers an 8 percent pay hike and a $2,000 signing bonus under its new deal. In exchange, the UAW must agree to a four-fold increase in healthcare premiums. If the deal fails to win ratification on time, the signing bonus will no longer be valid due to concerns about 2012. UAW-represented workers at Oshkosh, a heavy-vehicle maker and major U.S. defense contractor, are scheduled to vote on the contract on Friday afternoon. The UAW is Oshkosh's largest union, representing a collection of Wisconsin-based workers that equals about a quarter of the company's employees worldwide. Bargainers for both sides were still at the table as of Thursday. Insurance premiums, Oshkosh's stance on temporary workers and demands related to seniority are issues that have recently been on the table, according to UAW officials stationed at Local 578 in Northeast Wisconsin. This negotiation has taken a relative backseat for the UAW

compared with ongoing talks in Detroit, where labor deals affecting tens of thousands of domestic auto workers are being hashed out. [ID:nS1E78R0VD] However, the fragility of Oshkosh's business outlook presents a fresh challenge to the UAW's ability to negotiate favorable deals for members in the face of sustained economic uncertainty. LOOKING FOR 'FAIR SHAKE' Oshkosh has prospered over the life of its most recent fiveyear UAW deal. In fiscal 2010, the company reported nearly $10 billion in revenue and a $1.4 billion operating profit, up 216 percent and 337 percent, respectively, from 2006. As it returns to the bargaining table, its success has been referenced by workers several times in local newspaper and television interviews as a reason to expect more from Oshkosh. "We've got to let them know that we do want a fair shake," Don Forster, a member of UAW Local 578, said in a recent interview with NBC's WGBA-TV. "I know they're making money." Oskosh's operations in Wisconsin make vehicles sold to the U.S. military. But recent government spending cuts have clouded the view for the company's core defense business, which is operating under the weight of fewer contract prospects and increased competition.

U.S.-Mexico governors sign shared crime-fighting pact

ENSENADA, Mexico (Reuters) Governors along the U.S.-Mexico border agreed on Thursday to examine how to create shared databases where they can swap DNA and other biometric information on criminals in an effort to curb the flow of guns and drugs between the two countries. Officials announced the agreement at the end of an annual conference of regional leaders from both sides of the border that this year failed to attract many chief executives. New Mexico's Republican governor Susana Martinez was the only U.S. governor in attendance along with three governors, out of the six invited, from the Mexican side. The Texas governor, Republican Presidential hopeful Rick Perry, was not present and his state did not sign the final agreement. Drug violence has exploded along the border in recent years as the Mexican

government, with U.S. support, takes on powerful cartels smuggling narcotics, illegal immigrants and weapons across the nearly 2,000-mile line. "The hope is that every convicted criminal (deported from the United States) will return with biometric information that follows him back into Mexico," said Jose Osuna, governor of Baja California. The data could then be used by Mexican authorities to fight crime, he said. Mexican President Felipe Calderon says voracious U.S. drug consumers are partly to blame for the spiraling violence, which has killed more than 42,000 people in Mexico during the five years of his term. He also points to a river of U.S. guns flowing south across the border, including high-powered assault weapons that fuel escalating drug battles. The U.S. government is still dealing

with a scandal around a controversial operation at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), known as "Fast and Furious," that allowed weapons to move freely over the border. Governors at the meeting urged U.S. officials to better track weapon sales and showed their support for U.S. President Barack Obama's latest efforts to curb the weapons trade. The nearly three-decade-old conference was designed to soothe tensions along the busy dividing line. But last year, Arizona Republican Governor Jan Brewer canceled the event after her Mexican counterparts protested the state's tough immigration laws. This year the governor pulled out at the last minute, saying through a spokesperson she had to attend to pressing state government business.

(Reuters) - Just before solar panel maker Solyndra scrambled in August to get more cash from private investors and better loan terms from federal bureaucrats, top company officials went on a political road show. Brian Harrison, Solyndra's CEO who on Friday refused to answer questions posed by a House panel, met in July with congressional Republicans who were skeptical about how much money the Obama administration had sunk into the company's factory. He also met Democrats eager to support clean energy. "Things were on the upswing, that's what they told me," said Diana DeGette, a Democratic member of the House of Representatives. "I don't understand how they could paint such a rosy picture to us and then

five weeks later be in bankruptcy court," DeGette told reporters. The CEO's assertions were part of a long pattern of Solyndra putting on a positive face for the public as it struggled to keep its business alive. The rosy scenarios Harrison presented now face intense scrutiny from lawmakers, the FBI and other investigators. Details of the FBI probe of Solyndra have not been revealed. Internal watchdogs for the Energy and Treasury departments are also looking at what went wrong. Congressional investigators want to know if the California-based company was misleading the government and hiding severe financial stresses it faced when its costly technology was undercut by cheap overseas panels.

Concerned about a House Energy and Commerce Committee investigation that had begun in February, the solar company's lawyer in mid-July e-mailed Republican investigators with what he called an "upbeat letter" with "current data on Solyndra's positive economic and job situation." The company's lawyer in the e-mail chided investigators for continuing "to perpetuate an incorrect picture of Solyndra's condition." Solyndra's Harrison then met lawmakers and congressional investigators faceto-face, bragging that the company had shipped record numbers of innovative panels around the world from a factory built with an Energy Department loan guarantee, competing with China in a made-in-America success story.

(Reuters) - With holiday shopping season near and and billions of dollars in sales tax at stake, financially strapped state and local governments are pushing to collect more tax on online purchases, but real progress will require action in Washington where political gridlock prevails. Recent efforts by California made headlines nationwide when (AMZN.O), one of the world's largest

online retailers, agreed to begin collecting taxes on sales in that state as early as next September. The state, which faced a $25 billion budget deficit at the beginning of the year, is estimated to be losing $1.7 billion annually in uncollected online sales taxes. Sales over the web are the fastest growing area of retailing and states are anxious to up their share. Deloitte LLP

projects that this holiday season, retail sales overall will grow up 3 percent, but 14 percent online. Goldman Sachs has estimated that online shopping will jump from less than 10 percent of retail sales to over 17 percent by 2020. Under a Supreme Court decision now almost 20 years old, any national framework for collecting tax on remote sales would have to come from Congress.

At all times during the terms of this Franchise, the Grantee shall maintain on a twenty-four (24) hour-a-day basis a fully-operational computer-aided system, such as Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA), or a similar and equivalent system designed for the purpose of controlling and monitoring rates of flow, pressures and fluid characteristics or provide adequate emergency equipment and a properly trained emergency crew or representatives within a radius of fifteen (15) miles from any franchise property installed or maintained pursuant hereto for the purpose of shutting off the pressure and the flow of contents of the franchise property in the event of an emergency resulting from any earthquake, act of war, civil disturbance, flood or other cause.

B. Plans. The Grantee shall, before it uses any franchise property to transmit oil, gasoline or other liquid hydrocarbons, submit to the Community Services Department an oil spill prevention and cleanup plan pertaining to oil spills which may occur in the territory of the City. Such plans shall coordinate with plans the Grantee will submit for spills occurring in areas not within the City. SECTION 15. NATIVE VEGETATION.

The Grantee shall, in connection with restoring the City street surface, also concurrently replant all areas from which native vegetation was removed, with the same or a similar type or types of native vegetation and shall include appropriate measures to the satisfaction of the Community Services Director to prevent soil erosion and to maintain such replanted vegetation until it has established itself.

Daily Sound

independent Geotechnical (Soils, Engineering, and Engineering Geology) Consultant approved in writing by the City.

The City shall be notified promptly of any faults discovered.

Prior to use of the franchise property, the Grantee shall file with the Community Services Department an exact map or maps at suitable scale of the final franchise property route, including cross sections of intersections with public highways and other utilities and diagrams of the relationship to other features within public highway and railroad rights of way.

The Grantee agrees to operate its franchise property transporting oil and other fluid hydrocarbons as a common carrier subject to the jurisdiction of the California Public Utilities Commission, including any regulations relating to shared use. SECTION 21. DEFAULT.

A. Default. In any event that the Grantee shall default in the performance of any of the terms, covenants and conditions herein, including any neglect, failure or refusal to fully comply with any of the provisions of this Franchise, the City Manager may give written notice to the Grantee of such default. In the event that the Grantee does not commence the work necessary to cure such default within ten (10) business days after such notice is sent or prosecute such work diligently to completion, the Grantee agrees and acknowledges that the Council may declare this Franchise forfeited by giving written notice thereof to the Grantee, whereupon this Franchise shall be void and the rights of the Grantee hereunder shall terminate and the Grantee shall execute an instrument of surrender and deliver the same to the City. If the Council declares this Franchise forfeited, it may thereupon and thereafter exclude the Grantee from further occupancy or use of all City streets authorized under this Franchise. A forfeiture of said Franchise shall not of itself operate to release the bond filed for this Franchise. Upon declaring this Franchise forfeited, the Council may elect to take and accept the bond as liquidated damages therefor and pursue any other legal remedy for any damage, loss or injury suffered by the City as a result of such breach. After forfeiture, the bond shall remain in full force and effect for a period of one (1) year unless exonerated by the Council. No bond shall be exonerated unless a release is obtained from the Community Services Director and is filed with the City Clerk. The release shall state whether all excavations have been back filled, all obstructions removed, and whether the substratum or surface of City streets occupied or used have been placed in good and serviceable condition. Release shall not constitute a waiver of any right or remedy which the City may have against the Grantee or any person, firm or corporation for any damage, loss or injury suffered by the City as a result of any work or activity performed by the Grantee in the exercise of this Franchise. B. Cumulative Remedies. No provision herein made for the purpose of securing the enforcement of the terms and conditions of this Franchise shall be deemed an exclusive remedy or to afford the exclusive procedure, for the enforcement of said terms and conditions, but the remedy and procedure herein provided, in addition to those provided by law, shall be deemed to be cumulative. SECTION 22. FRANCHISE NONEXCLUSIVE.

This Franchise is granted under and pursuant to the provisions of the laws of the State of California applicable to the granting of franchises by cities and this Franchise shall not be exclusive, but the Council reserves the right and power to grant other and additional franchises to persons, firms and corporations as authorized and provided by law so long as such additional franchises shall not unreasonably interfere with the rights granted to the Grantee hereunder. SECTION 23. PERFORMANCE BOND.

The Grantee shall file a bond running to the City with at least two (2) good and sufficient Sureties or a corporate surety bond to be approved by the Community Services Director in the penal sum of Two Hundred Fifty Thousand Dollars ($250,000 00), conditioned that the Grantee shall well and truly observe, fulfill and perform each and every term and condition of this Franchise,

The City shall receive thirty (30) days advance written notice of any proposed reduction in coverage of the insurance policies on which it is carried as a named insured, as well as on coverage required to be maintained by this section. Such advance notice shall also be required as to any proposed or actual cancellation of any such policies of insurance. Insurance endorsements of such coverage shall be filed with the City. SECTION 25. INDEMNIFICATION BY GRANTEE.

For all claims relating to activity taken during the times subject to this Franchise, including any retroactivity dates, the Grantee shall indemnify, defend with counsel selected by the City subject to approval of the Grantee whose approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, protect and hold harmless the City, its officers, employees, agents, assigns and any successor or successors to the City’s interest from and against all claims, demands, losses, costs, expenses, penalties, damages of any kind (including but not limited to special and consequential damages, the death of persons, damage to property), attorneys’ fees, consultant’s and expert’s fees and costs (“Liabilities”) directly or indirectly arising as a result of the Grantee’s exercise of the Franchise or operation of the franchise property, regardless whether any act or omission complained of is authorized, allowed, or prohibited by the Franchise.

HOROSCOPES by Eugenia Last

Happy Birthday: Put greater effort into your future. Pick up more skills and knowledge, or consider an apprenticeship. You can achieve success if you stop daydreaming and start doing. Opportunities are present, and life improvements can be made with a little effort on your part. Don't wait for others to do for you. Your numbers are 8, 15, 19, 28, 33, 36, 47. ARIES (March 21-April 19): Before moving forward, take note of what is going on around you. A change of plans will catch you by surprise but shouldn't stop you in your tracks. Accept the inevitable and leap in the most positive direction being offered. 3 stars TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20): Press on with your plans. For every door that shuts, another will open. Look optimistically at the choices you have and don't be afraid to act aggressively if you can get what you want. A change of scenery will rejuvenate you. 3 stars

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20): Get down to business and do whatever is required. Relying on someone else is a waste of time and will not impress onlookers. Love, romance, socializing and being the one who takes action will bring excellent results. 3 stars

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 22-DEC. 21): Take pride in being the one everyone comes to. Your progressive way of dealing with matters will impress someone who will make you an offer you cannot refuse. Prepare to alter your living situation to accommodate your future plans. 3 stars

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22): If you go against the grain you'll take two steps forward and three steps back. Know what's expected of you and work with what you have. Attending a reunion or traveling to old familiar places will help put your life in perspective. 4 stars

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 18): Be a leader, not a follower. Trust in your abilities. Invest in your future, not someone else's. Financial, contractual and emotional gains can be made. An unexpected turn of events will bring benefits far greater than you can imagine. 2 stars

To solve, every number 1-9 must appear in each of the nine vertical columns, each of the nine horizontal rows and F each of the nine 3x3 box. No number can occur more than once in any row, column or box.


PISCES (FEB. 19-MARCH 20): Reconnect with old friends to discover something about yourself that you didn't realize. The information you gather will help you make an important decision. A money matter will be riddled with deception. Keep your end of it straight. 5 stars

Birthday Baby: You have great stamina and drive. You are charming, smart, talkative and persuasive.

SCORPIO (OCT. 23-NOV. 21): Don't wait until someone backs you into a corner. Make a decision before it is made for you. If you don't participate, you won't be able to complain about the results. Do your part and you will prove yourself worthy of the support offered. 3 stars



CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19): Listen and take whatever is said to heart. Be ready to make adjustments if you want to get help and support. Using reverse psychology will bring far better results than trying to implement force. Orchestrate and you will achieve success. 4 stars

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 22): Memories must not interfere with productivity. Finish what you start before moving on to social events. Being responsible will make an impression on someone you need in your corner. Live up to your promises, keep your thoughts open and be upfront. 3 stars

The three Democratic Party-backed candidates for Santa Barbara City Council lead the pack in fundraising, according to campaign disclosures filed Thursday at City Hall. Planning Commissioner Deborah Schwartz leads the pack. Schwartz raised $61,638. Trailing her is Cathy Murillo, a former journalist, who would be the first Latina on the City Council if elected. Murillo has raised $57,270. All three received $7,500 donations each from the Service Employees International Union Local 620. The three Democrats are challenging three conservative incumbents for a seat at City Hall. Dale Francisco, Randy Rowse and Michael Self are all running for re-election. Only Rowse, however failed him campaign disclosure electronically as of press time on Thursday. Rowse, the owner of the Paradise Café raised $35,262. Even though Rowse is an incumbent, this is the first time he has campaigned for office. He was appointed to the council in December, to fill the seat vacated by Das Williams. Williams was elected to the state Assembly. Rowse received $3,100 from neighborhood activist Jim Westby and his wife Sharon, for the campaign.

Sharon Byrne, who jumped into the race late, has raised $11,355.25. Byrne is the executive director of the Milpas Community Association. Byrne, who has advocated for a greater police presence on the Eastside, and for the city to better address its homeless problem, received $5,731.25 from the Santa Barbara Police Officers Association. Schwartz also received $3,000 from 12th District tate Assemblywoman Fiona Ma.

But Cruz felt these funds would serve the community more directly if more was spent on neighborhood projects. Contestants also voiced the need to bolster art festivals and programs that would further enrich the community through the arts, such as after school programs for children and more publicly funded murals and projects. Many praised art in Santa Barbara as a unique feature of the community. “The scenic beauty of Santa Barbara through the arts attracts people from all over the world every day,” said Schwartz.


and more affordable option that could address that concern. Incumbents also defended the funding of the headquarters. “Police departments need to be built to the same standards as a hospitals,” said Self. Rowse added that the basement of the current building is particularly substandard. “It’s third world,” he said. “Most employers would be taken to task by OSHA if they had their employees working in there.”
