Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider wasn’t in the room that evening at Pea Soup Andersen’s in Buellton. And that was the problem. In her absence, a group of Party Democrats sat inside a banquet room debating Schneider’s proposals to increase the city’s sales tax, raise business license fees for downtown bars and restaurants, and force public safety employees to pay more into their pension plans. And it got ugly inside that room last week. Members of the Democratic Central Committee quarreled, bickered and verbally brawled over the ballot proposals that she sprung on the public in January. At one point, Mayor Schneider’s ideas were compared to those of Scott Walker, the governor of Wisconsin who successfully pushed for the end of collective bargaining in that state. After hours of debate, the committee called on Schneider to suspend her signature-gathering effort and halt her plans to place the measures on the November ballot. Although the committee didn’t take a formal stand to oppose her proposals, it was a stunning rejection of the mayor, a
woman who has been the shining star of the left since she won office in 2003. The message was clear. “I think the mayor erred in the way she advanced the proposals in that she didn’t consult with other groups,” said longtime community activist Mickey Flacks. “I don’t understand this. It doesn’t make any sense.” Schneider hasn’t told anyone where she was that night, or what was more important than explaining her proposals to the most influential group of Democrats in the county. She did say that she told party chairman Daraka Larimore-Hall nearly three weeks prior that she could not attend the meeting, and that he refused to reschedule. “I had a personal commitment that I made weeks before that I couldn’t change,” Schneider said. “I was disappointed, but I was grateful to the many members of the committee who wanted to wait for me.”
A new day
For nearly a decade, Helene Schneider reigned as the queen of progressive politics in Santa Barbara. But for the first time in her political career, Schneider now faces criticism and pushback from her longtime allies. Schneider finds herself on the outs with some Democratic Party leaders and long-

time activists. It’s an unfamiliar position for the mayor. Schneider, who is typically cautious and careful in her political maneuvers, stunned the political establishment in January when she announced four proposals that she envisioned for the November ballot. The package consisted of a license fee increase for businesses in lower State Street that serve alcohol past 11 p.m., a requirement for city public safety employees to increase contributions to their retirement fund, and a half-cent See SCHNEIDER, page 6

Sierra Club supports Hannah-Beth Jackson BY KYLE ROKES
DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT
The Los Padres Sierra Club yesterday announced its endorsement of Hannah-Beth Jackson's run for re-election to the state senate. "She is a true environmental champion," said Los Padres Chair Gerry Ching. According to the Los Padres chapter, Jackson "not only votes correctly on environmental issues, but also leads the fight to protect California's clean air, clean water and special places." The group also announced that it would commit its ranks of volunteers to the cause of her re-election. "Scores of Sierra Club volunteers will contact voters on her behalf," said Selma Rubin about the Los Padres chapter's intent. "We will speak to the pub-
lic as often as possible about her exemplary environmental record," she said. Jackson is running for the seat against Democrat Jason Hodge and Republican Mike Stoker. The last time she served as a State Assembly member was for District 35 from 1998 to 2004. While there, Jackson's appointments included serving as Chair of the Assembly Committee on Natural Resources and Chair of the Assembly Select Committee on Coastal Protection. Prior to her time as a representative, Jackson was a deputy district attorney for Santa Barbara County. She's also been a member of the Santa Barbara County Commission for Women, Santa Barbara Shelter Services for Women, and the Santa Barbara Women's

Romney, Santorum in tight race NEWS IN BRIEF
Rivals Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum made their final pitch for support in the vital battleground state of Ohio on Monday, the day before 10 states hold Super Tuesday nominating contests that could be pivotal in an unpredictable Republican presidential race. Romney has been gaining on Santorum in Ohio polls all week, erasing a double-digit lead for the former senator from Pennsylvania. Three new surveys on Monday showed a tight race: one gave Romney a slight edge, one had Santorum with a small lead and the third showed a dead heat. Ohio is the largest battleground and most closely watched prize of the 10 contests on Super Tuesday, the biggest day of voting in the Republican race to find a challenger to President Barack Obama in the November 6 election. At campaign rallies and in a conference call with reporters, Santorum kept up his attacks on Romney for backing an individual mandate to purchase insurance in the Massachusetts healthcare plan, a precursor of Obama's federal overhaul.
Court: guns ok on campus
The University of Colorado overstepped its authority when the school's board of regents imposed a ban on the carrying of concealed weapons at its four campuses, the state's Supreme Court ruled on Monday. In overturning the policy, the court said that a concealed carry law passed by the state legislature trumped the school's ban because it did not carve out an exception for the state's flagship university. "We hold that the (concealed carry law's) comprehensive statewide purpose, broad language, and narrow exclusions show that the General Assembly intended to divest the Board of Regents of its authority to regulate concealed handgun possession on campus," the ruling said.
Netanyahu won’t rule out action
President Barack Obama appealed to Benjamin Netanyahu on Monday to give sanctions time to curb Iran's nuclear ambitions, but the Israeli prime minister offered no sign of backing away from possible military action, saying his country must be the "master of its fate." The two men, who have had a strained relationship, sought to present a united front in the Iranian nuclear standoff as they held White House talks. But their public statements revealed differences over how to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons. Behind closed doors, however, Netanyahu confirmed to Obama what the president has already stated publicly - that Israel has yet to decide whether to hit Iran's nuclear sites but retains the right to resort to military action, a source close to the talks said. Kicking off one of the most consequential meetings of U.S. and Israeli leaders in years, Obama and Netanyahu made no mention of lingering disagreements over what Washington fears could be an Israeli rush to attack Iran's nuclear program in the coming months.

Growgirl grows up BOOKS
A quirky memoir from The Blair Witch Project actress BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER THE BOOKWORM SEZ
Nothing ever happens the way you think it will. Once upon a time, for instance, you had your future mapped out. You knew where you were going, you had an image of yourself in mind, and maybe youâ€™d even gained a toe-hold on making that image a reality. Then it happened that others had a different image for you, which made it easy to lose sight of who you really were. Thatâ€™s when life got a whole lot disjointed. In the new memoir, â€œGrowgirlâ€?, the opposite happened to Heather Donahue. In her case, life became definitelyâ€Ś jointed. Heather Donahue was an actress â€“ or, at least thatâ€™s what she moved to Hollywood for. She knew that she could have done anything with her life, but no other option â€œsound[ed] as much fun as being an actress.â€? Eventually, Donahue became â€œthat girl on The Blair Witch Project,â€? and appeared in a few other bit parts. But the fun didnâ€™t last and neither did the calls for work â€“ which was okay, since Donahue â€œwanted [her] story back.â€? Heavyhearted, she purged herself of everything to do with her former Hollywood career and escaped to a meditation retreat, where she met a man. His name was Judah and he fell for Donahue right away. He lived in a place called Nuggettown, a little burg on top of a huge vein of gold, though the only gold that Judah had was of the smokable kind. That appealed to Donahue in a freshly-independent, sassy-woman kind of way. She agreed to apprentice with Judah. She
learned how to grow, tend, and nurture barely-legal medical marijuana plants but, by the time her apprenticeship was done, Donahue and Judah had parted ways. By then, though, Donahue was determined to be Country Girl. She signed a one-year lease a house in the woods, got a dog and some chickens, and reluctantly accepted help from The Community to start her own growhouse. But The Girls, as Donahue thought of her plants, required a lot of tending. Their needs were specific or they wouldnâ€™t flourish. It was imperative to know that â€œWhen a bud is ripe, itâ€™s time to harvest, trim up, move on.â€? Which was good advice for a growgirl, too. Oh, my, thereâ€™s plenty of unconventionality inside â€œGrowgirlâ€? â€“ so much so, that I didnâ€™t like this book at first. Author Heather Donahueâ€™s wry sense of humor and sarcastic bluntness takes some getting used to, but her wide-eyed blundering into farming (even farming of the weed-encouraging kind) is genuine, appealing, and keeps readers wondering what could possibly happen next. After awhile, though I started to think that the babe-in-the-woods, carefree, semi-slacker personae is what really makes this book so much fun. The anticipation (will she get caught?) and the sweet conclusion make it even more addicting. In the end, I think that if youâ€™re looking for a quirky, uncommon memoir, you shouldnâ€™t waste time weeding through the shelves of some book joint. No, I think you should just grab â€œGrowgirlâ€? because, for you, itâ€™s a good hit.

sales tax increase to fund city services and the school district. The proposals caught many liberals and Democrats off-guard. Schneider announced her plans at a press conference in a suite above Starbucks, with no supporters – only her political consultant Jeremy Lindaman in the back of the room. The idea of a Democratic mayor proposing pension reform shocked many observers. Schneider hadn’t discussed the proposals with police and fire unions. Since her announcement, the mayor has been meeting with those groups, hoping to explain her logic. “Certainly a Democratic mayor offering a form of pension reform is unusual,” Schneider said. “This is something that I think we as a community need to talk about.” FROM PAGE 2

Larimore-Hall said there was no reason why Schneider could not have sent someone else to speak on her behalf or submitted written materials supporting her case at the Democratic Central Committee meeting. He said Schneider wanted him to put off discussion of the ballot measures until April so that she could attend the meeting. But Larimore-Hall said that would be too late. Schneider is already circulating the petition and asking voters to sign them so that they can qualify for the ballot. “The clock is ticking on any opportunity to
change the measures before they are put on the ballot,” Larimore-Hall said. “These things were just announced and they surprised really the entire progressive community. All of this would have been a lot of easier if there would have been dialogue about these issues at the beginning.” Given Schneider’s recent positions on matters of importance to local party Democrats, it wasn’t likely that the group was going to bend over backwards to accommodate her this time. Schneider took no position on the Measure B proposal in 2009. The measure would have lowered maximum building heights in the El Pueblo Viejo District from 60 feet to 40 feet. Affordable housing activists opposed the proposal because they felt that reducing building heights would crush affordable housing in the city. Schneider, a longtime affordable housing activist, didn’t take a public position. Then last year, Schneider refused to endorse any of the Democratic Party-backed candidates for City Council. Breaking tradition of previous mayors, Schneider didn’t help any Democrats campaign. After only one of them won office, Cathy Murillo, Schneider was blamed privately that had she made a few telephone calls for Democrats that she might have helped them get elected. Iya Falcone, for example, finished fewer than 300 votes away from winning back a seat on the council. Schneider’s political consultant Jeremy Lindaman is also disliked by many progressive See MAYOR, page12
