After public outcry over allegations that officers used excessive force when arresting Tony DeNunzio on October 21st, Santa Barbara Police Chief Cam Sanchez released footage from a “dash-cam” to the media. During a press conference, Sanchez re-affirmed his support for Officer Aaron Tudor, the officer who pulled DeNunzio over. Some witn “Based on my observations of this video, it was my conclusion that nothing out of policy happened,” Sanchez said. But Sanchez also acknowledged that the use of force could seem brutal to some witnesses. “Any use of force, even when we use it legally and appropriately, is never pretty,” Sanchez said. The District Attorney’s office declined to charge DeNunzio with resisting arrest Wednesday, citing conflicting witness statements. Sanchez said the police department had planned on releasing the footage to the public regardless of what path the D.A. took and noted that D.A. did not condone the release of the footage. “This is something we had been planning all along whether all charges or no charges are going to be filed because of the fact that the community was asking, ‘What is this use of force?’” Sanchez said. The 18 minute-clip started with Tudor entering his vehicle near Arroyo Burro Beach. Sanchez said Tudor had seen DeNunzio’s vehicle missing its front license plate. Tudor’s car follows DeNunzio’s truck up Las Positas Road. The first of DeNunzio’s three alleged lane changes happen at Las Positas and Modoc Road as DeNunzio moves into the left lane.
He switches to the right lane on the Highway 101 overpass, passes another vehicle, and switches back without appearing to use his turn signal. Tudor activates his lights as DeNunzio signals to pull into Loreto Plaza. Sanchez said Tudor waited until Loreto to pull DeNunzio over because Las Positas Road doesn’t have any safe places to pull over. DENUNZIO Once in the Plaza, DeNunzio parks the truck and gets out with a cigarette in his mouth. Tudor can be faintly heard on the footage ordering DeNunzio to get back in the car and gesturing at DeNunzio. DeNunzio appears to turn away and Tudor grabs him by the arm, appears to hold him and then pushes him against the truck. Much of the ensuing scuffle is obscured by DeNunzio’s truck. Tudor performs a leg sweep, taking DeNunzio to the ground. At points, Tudor can be seen using an open hand strikes on DeNunzio, and later uses his Taser in a “Drive Stun”, a less effective charge that doesn’t deploy the darts. The struggle moves out from away from the truck and behind another car. No more view of the actual arrest is seen after that. Additional officers arrive and after a minute and seven seconds according to Sanchez, the three officers succeed in handcuffing DeNunzio. DeNunzio is later seen being lead past the camera a short while later saying, “What the hell did I do?” “That’s called resisting arrest in my opinion,” Sanchez said. Sanchez said SBPD use of force is rare, but it does happen. Of the 297,000 calls for service in last three years, he said the police
Motion to remove Larimore-Hall fails BY JOSHUA MOLINA DAILY SOUND EDITOR
A motion to remove the chair of the Santa Barbara County Democratic Central Committee failed overwhelmingly at the group’s Thursday night meeting. Daraka Larimore-Hall serves as the party chair, an elected position. Two supporters of Jason Hodge, a candidate for state Senate, criticized Larimore-Hall at the meeting for his comments about Hodge in Tuesday’s Daily Sound. Only three people – out of 28 on the committee – supported a motion to remove Larimore-Hall. Hodge is running against Hannah-Beth Jackson for the newly drawn 19th state Senate District race next June. Both candidates are Democrats.
See DASH-CAM, page 3
Larimore-Hall in The Daily Sound suggested that Hodge was relying on his wife, Fiona Ma, to line up endorsements for him in the campaign against Jackson, who served six years in the state Assembly. Hodge, a firefighter, has spent one year on the Oxnard Harbor Commission.. Ma, from San Francisco, is the Assembly Speaker Pro Tempore, “This whole thing is a maneuver to create a narrative for Jason that we are the big, evil bad guys picking on his wife,” said Larimore-Hall, a charismatic speaker who grew up in Santa Barbara. “People who are for Jason and those who are against me pulled a maneuver and it failed miserably.” Hodge has attempted to cast himself as a Sacramento outSee DARAKA, page 7

Genis said he filed a government claim and DeNunzio will go for a civil suit if the claim is rejected. DeNunzio still faces charges of driving under the influence, driving with a suspended license, and driving with a blood-alcohol level over .08.

NEWS IN BRIEF
Brown seeks $7B in tax hikes
The wealthy in California would pay more income tax and shoppers would face a sales tax increase under a measure to be unveiled by Governor Jerry Brown to raise $7 billion for the cash-strapped state. Details of the initiative were being nailed down on Thursday with lawmakers, advocates and labor unions so it could be made public as soon as Friday, according to sources in the state capital of Sacramento familiar with the measure. Brown aims to put the initiative on next November's ballot, which may see several more tax measures if proponents manage to gather at least half a million signatures to qualify them. The measures are likely to face tough opposition from the state's entrenched anti tax activists. Brown's plan would tack on a half-cent to the state sales tax. It would also impose income tax increases of 1 percent to individuals with income starting at $250,000 a year, 1.5 percent for those who make between $300,000 and $500,000 a year and 2 percent for those making more than $500,000 a year.
LA wind storm cuts power for 350K
A powerful wind storm with gale-force gusts left much of the Los Angeles area strewn with toppled trees and downed power lines on Thursday, slowing traffic, damaging homes and knocking out electricity to over 350,000 customers. An hourlong power outage at Los Angeles International Airport forced nearly two dozen inbound commercial flights to divert to other airports, and flight delays lingered even after electricity was restored, LAX spokeswoman Nancy Castles said. Damaging high winds also extended into other regions of the West, including Utah, where power was cut to an additional 55,000 residents, and 10 tractor-trailer trucks were tipped over by crosswind gusts north of Salt Lake City. Los Angeles County declared a state of emergency as a result of the winds, a move that hastens the ability of state and federal authorities to provide assistance, said Tony Bell, a spokesman for county Supervisor Mike Antonovich.
Second Mile charity to freeze assets
The Second Mile charity has agreed to freeze its assets to settle a lawsuit filed by a man identified only as Victim 4 in a sexual abuse indictment against a former Penn State football coach, the man's lawyers said on Friday. The Second Mile charity to help troubled children was founded by assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, who is charged with molesting eight men when they were juveniles in a scandal that rocked the multimillion dollar world of college athletics. The man identified as Victim 4 in a grand jury report filed the lawsuit last month in state court in Philadelphia to preserve Second Mile's assets. His lawyers, Ben Andreozzi and Jeffrey Fritz, said the charity has settled that suit.

These amendments would institute regulations that specify and clarify the process by which a mobilehome park may be closed within the unincorporated County. The amendments will require an applicant to file a Closure Impact Report assessing the negative impacts of park closure upon the park residents, and specify the assistance the applicant must provide to mitigate those impacts, prior to approval of the Conditional Use Permit necessary to close a park. A mobilehome park is defined as an area or tract of land where two or more mobilehome lots are rented or leased or held out for rent or lease to accommodate mobilehomes used for human habitation.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
COUNTY OF SANTA BARBARA PLANNING AND DEVELOPMENT
Howard, what most people fail to realize is that financial independence is not a "net worth" number; it is all about cash flow. Would you rather have a net worth of $3,000,000 that generates $100,000 per year of income, or a net worth of $2,000,000 with $150,000 of annual income? We know, you’re tempted to say "I would sell part of that 'extra' $1 million from the $3 million and live life off of that", but what if that means selling your home and moving out of town? In Santa Barbara, it is common to find residents with a high real estate net worth but with low relative cash flow. Here’s what you need to know and plan for: Wealth Management: People with accumulated wealth tend to hate spending principal and generally don't sell assets to live off of them. They usually become financially independent because they have prioritized saving over spending. They typically don’t spend money on things they don't value but they do get accustomed to a certain lifestyle which is hard to change. So when you retire, it is imperative that you have sustainable cash flow for your specific life style needs. Investment Management: An investment formula we created called “90/70/30” is a good rule of thumb to determine if you have reached, “financial independence.” When 90% of your lifestyle expenses are covered by known income sources, and it takes 70% or less of your investable (non-residence) assets to generate that “income,” you probably have a sustainable retirement. We believe the remaining 30% of your investable assets at minimum should be
allocated for growth to combat future inflation. The younger you are, the more growth you may need to account for inflation; the older you are, the less. Risk Management: Financially independent people don’t just look for ways to accumulate and invest their assets. They also manage their risks. An extended, unexpected health care crisis can destroy a lifetime of savings. So as you plan for retirement, it’s best to set money aside to account for this possibility or allocate some of your income to pay for long term care insurance. No one wants to buy insurance or think they may become ill, but not addressing this unknown risk is a potential recipe for disaster. From our experience the cost of care in Santa Barbara typically starts at $25 per hour and increases to as much as $350 per day depending on the level and type of care needed. Tax Management: Taxes are typically the single largest individual expense we see. You can employ numerous tax strategies, but the one most typically overlooked is allocating investments to the wrong "type" of account. For instance, with the current tax laws, money withdrawn from IRA's, 401k's and pension plans are taxed at higher marginal rates than long term capital gains. If you are heading into retirement and you need cash flow from your investments, it generally makes tactical tax sense to put your taxable bonds in your IRA and your stocks in your taxable accounts. This way, as your stocks grow, you can take advantage of the lower long term capital gains tax rates, while the income coming off your IRA from taxable bonds is taxed at the same rate regardless. Over time, these types of strategies can potentially save a tremendous amount of money.

Maps and/or a staff analysis of the proposal may be reviewed at Planning and Development, 123 East Anapamu Street, Santa Barbara, CA, 93101 a week prior to the public hearing. For further information, please contact Paul Clementi at (805) 568-2011, by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or FAX to (805) 568-2076. If you challenge these projects (Case Nos. 11ORD-00000-00017 & 11ORD-0000000018) in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this notice, or in written correspondence to the County Planning Commission prior to the public hearing.
