In the mid-1990s, Stevens moved to San Diego, where he continued to work as youth soccer coach. In 2008, authorities arrested Stevens for allegedly sexually assaulting a minor in Yuma, Arizona. He was convicted and is now serving a prison sentence in Arizona, authorities said. Last August, Stevens was extradited to the custody of the Santa Barbara County Sheriff's Office to answer the local charges from the 1980s. He now faces17 felony counts of

Penn State mourns Paterno

Penn State students and supporters laid flowers and lit candles on Monday as they mourned the death of Joe Paterno, who won more games than any other U.S. major college football coach but saw his legacy tarnished by a child sexual abuse scandal at the school. Paterno, 85, died of lung cancer on Sunday, two months after being fired after a former assistant coach, Jerry Sandusky, was charged with serial child sex abuse. University trustees filed Paterno because he failed to tell police what he had been told about the alleged abuse. "You have no choice. You have to get through it," Penn State senior Steve Atz, 21, said. He had a friend shave the initials "JP" on the back of his head.

Armendariz gets lucky

DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli

Carpinteria City Councilman Joe Armendariz fate was put off for at least another week because two council members didn't show up to last night's meeting.

Carp council postpones censure vote because of a lack of quorum; one member says he needs to go to rehab BY NICK C. TONKIN


In shocking series of procedural twists and turns, Carpinteria City Council member Joe Armendariz received a reprieve when the council couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t reach a quorum on whether to censure him. Armendariz had been under pressure to resign after being arrested for allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol in December, but has vowed to stay on the council until his term is up. After hearing from the public at its last meeting, the council asked staff to report what disciplinary actions, if any, the council could against Armendariz. The council itself cannot remove a sitting member, however they can vote to censure and can strip a member of their committee assignments, according to the staff report. The report had even drawn up a censure proposal. But the council never got the chance to vote on it. Mayor Al Clark began the meeting with only Armendariz and council member Gregg Carty present. Vice-mayor Brad Stein had called in sick and council

member Kathleen Reddington had not arrived. The three approved the consent calendar, but when the issue of whether the council should censure Armendariz came up, only Carty and Clark had standing to vote on the matter. City manager Dave Durflinger said the council could hear a report, but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take action with only two votes. Clark and Carty opted to continue the item until the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next meeting

That unexpected turn angered many citizens who had come out to speak against Armendariz. And in another twist, Reddington arrived to the council not long after the issue had been continued. Whether a political move, as one man who claimed Reddingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car had been in the parking lot the whole time, or not, people said it had been a huge error on her part.

Romney reports $6.2M tax bill NEWS

WASHINGTON (Reuters) — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney released tax records on Tuesday indicating he will pay $6.2 million in taxes on a total of $42.5 million in income over the years 2010 and 2011. Bowing to increasing political pressure to provide more detail about his vast wealth, the former private equity executive released tax returns indicating he and his wife, Ann, paid an effective tax rate of 13.9 percent in 2010. They expect to pay a 15.4 percent rate when they file their returns for 2011. Romney's tax rate is below that of most wage-earning Americans because most of his income, as outlined in more than 500 pages of tax documents, flows from capital gains on investments. Under the U.S. tax code, capital gains are taxed at 15 percent, compared with a top tax rate of 35 percent for wage earners. Romney released the tax returns after a week in which his chief rival for the Republican presidential nomination, former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich, questioned whether Romney was hiding information about his finances and cast him as being out of touch with most Americans. Gingrich's attacks on Romney helped him upset the former Massachusetts governor in the South Carolina primary on Saturday. Since then, Romney has vowed to be more aggressive in returning fire. He has launched a series of attacks

questioning Gingrich's character, judgment and lucrative work as a Washington consultant, and released his tax returns to try to nullify Gingrich's criticisms on that front. The tax rates Romney reported paying could add fuel to a national debate over the fairness of the tax code, and coincides with broader concerns about income inequality symbolized by the Occupy Wall Street movement. Romney's campaign officials stressed that his tax rate is based mostly on income from investments that are held in a blind trust. Romney's holdings include an undisclosed amount in funds based in the Grand Cayman Islands and other overseas entities. Romney advisers stressed that the holdings in the Caymans - along with those in a Swiss bank account that was closed in 2010 after an investment adviser decided it could be politically embarrassing to Romney - were reported on tax returns and were not vehicles to avoid taxes. They also stressed that Romney, whose holdings are in three blind trusts, makes no decisions as to how his money is invested. Regardless, the emerging picture was of a man of great means who contributes mightily to charity. The documents showed he and his wife contributed $7 million in charity over the two years, much of it going to his Mormon church. That represents more than 15 percent of the Romneys' income for those years.

My brother and many of my high school mates served in Vietnam and witnessed captured Viet-Cong being drawn and quartered by jeeps driven by South Vietnamese regulars.

Romney, whose estimated net worth is $190 million to $250 million, is among the wealthiest Americans ever to seek the presidency. Top campaign officials and the director of Romney's blind trust, Brad Malt, briefed Reuters on the details ahead of a more general release of the information Tuesday morning. Campaign counsel Ben Ginsberg, asked why Romney was not releasing tax records for the years in the 1980s and 1990s in which Romney made his fortune at private equity firm Bain Capital, said the two years covered by the tax returns should give a broad picture of Romney's financial situation. "We're not going to get into the game of once you give them something, they demand more," Ginsberg said. "This is a fulsome release and we're proud of it." The tax issue may have been a factor in Romney's loss to Gingrich in South Carolina. It became a distraction to Romney's campaign, and Romney's fuzzy answers on when and if he would release his records aggravated the problem. First he said he might release them, or might not. When the questions kept coming, he said he would put them out in April, after his 2011 forms were completed. Only after he was defeated in South Carolina did his aides say he would release them this week. Gingrich has released his returns for 2010, but has not released an estimate for last year, as Romney did.

homicidal savagery are eventually inevitable in war, and can only be eliminated by avoiding war. Those who are ultimately responsible, therefore, for such horrors are any past and current occupiers of the White House and Congress who initiated and perpetuate unnecessary wars.

HOROSCOPES by Eugenia Last

Happy Birthday: Good fortune can be yours if you are selective in your pursuits and investments. Do your due diligence and find out the pros and cons of anything you want to incorporate into your life. Opportunity is heading your way, and the chance to improve your living quarters and arrangements will come into play. Your numbers are 8, 17, 20, 27, 35, 38, 47.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): A disciplined approach to what needs to be done will enhance your reputation. The people who gravitate toward you will have something to contribute that will help you reach your goals. Push hard and success will come your way. 4 stars TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Not everyone will be honest with you, but if you listen carefully, you will be able to weed out who is on your side and who isn't. Remain moderate in all that you do or say and you will come out on top. 2 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Put greater enthusiasm into whatever you do and you will draw attention. Your ability to utilize your imaginative originality, as well as your ability to bring logic and reason to whatever you do, will be most impressive today. 5 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Money matters may have to be handled in an unorthodox manner. Separate your personal and professional goals to see your assets and liabilities clearly. A change at home will help you ease any stress you've been feeling. 3 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): You are on a roll and nobody can stop you. Your ideas are unique and workable, and your ability to make a profit will push you to the head of your class. Enjoy your good fortune, but don't go overboard or all will be lost. 3 stars

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Emotional deception can cause problems when dealing with colleagues, peers and institutional matters. Keep things simple, and refuse to let anyone lead you down the wrong path. Call the shots and avoid questionable people. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Emotions will be difficult to hide. You can help eliminate your problems if you share your concerns with a partner, close friend or confidant. Open up and you will find a way to turn any negative you face into a positive. 3 stars

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Interacting with other creative people will bring interesting results. Diversity is essential, and the more you bring to the table the more valuable you will become. Don't let a personal matter slow your professional progress. 5 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Give help and get it in return. The guidelines you set up now will help you accomplish your goals. Keeping things equal will be the factor that will allow you to continue to work in partnership with others. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Not everyone will understand what you are trying to accomplish. Stick to the people who get what you are doing and you will receive input that will allow you to finish what you start so that you can receive the benefits. 2 stars

Birthday Baby: You are original and trendy. You set goals and aspire to them.

Reddington’s tardiness, particularly with such an important topic high on the agenda, was unprofessional. “It’s frustrating for people, one of whom drove at least an hour to be here,” Landreau said. Reddington later said she had been caught in traffic coming back from Santa Barbara and hadn’t been able to contact staff before they went to chambers. She did address the censure option before the council adjourned however. She proposed allowing Armendariz to take a leave of absence for rehab. She said allowing Armendariz to enter rehab would spare the city the choice of a $60,000 special election or functioning with a four-member council for an extended period of time. “If we are to be leaders, we have to look at not only pressuring someone to walk away,” Reddington said. “But also giving someone the opportunity to come back, clean, together, and whole.” Armendariz seemed taken aback by Reddington’s proposal and thanked her for her comments and consideration. He acknowledged his conduct in his private life had been reprehensible and said he understood there seemed to be an “appetite” for the council to do something. But he also emphasized that this is about his personal life. “At the end of the day, whether or not I go into a formal rehabilitation program is my choice,” Armendariz said. “For what it’s worth, I am in a recovery program.” Clark agreed to support putting rehab as another option for the council, but stopped short of approving it. Carty, who had called for Armendariz to resign before, remained silent, except to say, “I am,” when told he was part of the conversation. In December, Armendariz rolled his gray 2001 Volvo while traveling southbound on Highway 101. According to CHP reports, when he failed to make a turn in the roadway,

he veered to the left, struck the center divider, flew across both lanes and crashed through a barbwire fence. He sustained injuries to his head and neck. Tests allegedly showed his blood alcohol level allegedly to be .18. He faces two misdemeanor charges of driving under the influence of alcohol. Armendariz has been convicted of similar charges in 2006. A conservative Republican, Armendariz has emerged as the face of the GOP in recent years. He has been active in the community. A frequent critic of government and a staunch supporter of business, Armendariz spoke out at city and county meetings, served as the executive director for the Santa Barbara County Taxpayers Association, and chaired the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments in 2011. After the meeting, Armendariz said he never tried to deny or justify his behavior. But he did have concerns that the censure measure could set a precedent for making future council members have to judge others on their personal, rather than professional lives. “I would just hope that if my colleagues decide to vote to ask me to resign that they will be able to come up with at least one solitary item that speaks to my performance as a city council person,” Armendariz said. “Not my poor performance as a human being in a private capacity on a late Friday night.”
