Senate candidates battle in final days Hannah-Beth Jackson, Mike Stoker and Jason Hodge are battling for the 19th District State Senate seat.

DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli

Jackson, Hodge, Stoker head into Tuesday primary BY JOSHUA MOLINA DAILY SOUND EDITOR

Just five days before the primary, Republican Mike Stoker and Democrat Jason Hodge went on the attack against Democrat HannahBeth Jackson at a Thursday night debate at Fess Parker’s Double Tree Resort on Santa Barbara’s waterfront. The candidates are vying for the 19th District State Senate seat in an open primary, where the top two finishers regardless of party affiliation will battle for the seat in November. Journalist Jerry Roberts, former managing editor of the San Francisco Chronicle,

moderated the businessfocused debate sponsored by the Milpas Community Association. About 75 people attended. Stoker and Hodge acted more like old buddies than rivals for the seat, so much so that Roberts at one point joked that they were practically singing “Kumbaya” together. Stoker took on Jackson early. “Ms. Jackson has never seen a tax proposal she didn’t support,” Stoker said. Later Hodge said the seeds of California’s financial crisis were planted when Jackson was serving in the state Assembly from 1998 to 2004.

Jackson mostly stuck to her talking points, such as “California is the state that invents the future.” The candidates answered a wide range of questions from what California could do to reinvigorate the business climate and how to stop the middle-class exodus to whether the candidates supported Prop. 29, a $1 tax on cigarettes, and their views on pension reform. Political observers expect that Jackson and Stoker will make it through the June primary and challenge each other in November. Hodge, a Ventura County firefighter and member of the Oxnard Harbor Commission has

spent most of his time campaigning in Ventura County and North Santa Barbara County. Jackson is largely relying on her name recognition to give her the edge over Hodge. As the only Republican in the race, Stoker is consider a lock to be in the top two. Stoker seemed unconcerned with Hodge, so much so that he said that if he doesn’t win next week that he would endorse Hodge because “he gets it,” and that they agree that California over-regulates its businesses. “That’s pretty appalling that all these green jobs are See SENATE, page 6

Highway 101 EIR ‘scares’ panel BY NICK C. TONKIN


The controversy over the fate of the Cabrillo 101 Boulevard/Highway interchange shows few signs of cooling down for the summer. The Santa Barbara City Planning Commission gave a frosty response to Caltrans’ draft Environmental Impact Report on the project. Commissioners felt there’d been very little detail on the local impacts to the community in the report. “I think it’s what we’re not seeing scares me the most,� Commissioner Bruce Bartlett said. As the number of commuters between Santa Barbara and other areas is predicted to increase over the years, Caltrans has put in

plans to create a third High Occupancy Vehicle(HOV) Lane, more commonly known as a carpool or diamond lane. The project has come under fire from locals who have concerns regarding the elimination of left hand off ramps in the Montecito area and how that could affect the neighboring Coast Village Road. Though considered part of Montecito, Coast Village Road is within the Santa Barbara City boundaries and falls under the purview of the Santa Barbara Planning Commission. Caltrans released its draft EIR earlier in the year. In early May, it decided to expand the public comment period from May 25th to July 9th. A final EIR must address questions raised during the public comment period.

But after hearing Caltrans project manager Scott Eades give his presentation, the commissioners complained that they didn’t have enough details in the report to ask the right questions. Commissioner Mike Jordan said it had been one of the least organized reports he’d seen as a planning commissioner. “I think I’ve seen about a half-dozen EIRs in two years up here and this is by far the most frustrating and unwieldy one to work with,� Jordan said. The issues for the city focus on the five possible configurations for the Cabrillo Boulevard exits known as F, F-modified, J, M, and M-modified. All eliminate the left hand ramps. See 101, page 7

Job recovery slows down

Private payroll growth picked up only slightly in May and claims for jobless benefits rose last week, suggesting the U.S. labor market recovery was losing steam after a strong performance early in the year. Other data on Thursday showed factory activity in the Midwest slowed considerably in May and economic growth in the first quarter was a bit softer than initially estimated. Economists said the reports reflected business anxiety amid an uncertain global economic outlook as the euro zone's debt crisis escalates and China's economy slows. "The economy is growing at an anemic pace and the job market is showing some signs of hesitation in the pace of hiring. There is a lot to worry about," said Paul Edelstein, an economist at IHS Global Insight in Lexington, Massachusetts. Private employers created 133,000 jobs in May, payrolls processor ADP said. That was only a slight step up from April's tepid increase of 113,000 and below economists' expectations for a gain of 148,000. The report comes ahead of the government's closely watched employment report for May on Friday, which is expected to show nonfarm payrolls increased 150,000, up from a paltry 115,000 in April.

Google shakes up online buying

Google Inc unveiled major changes to its shopping business on Thursday that will likely prove controversial in the e-commerce world. Starting in the fall, product search results for users in the United States will be influenced by how much retailers and advertisers pay, a company executive said. In the past, product search results were based mainly on relevance and the program was free. Google, the world's most popular Internet search engine, will rename its service Google Shopping from the current Google Product Search. "We are starting to transition Google Product Search in the U.S. to a purely commercial model," said Sameer Samat, vice president of product management at Google Shopping. "This will give merchants greater control over where their products appear on Google Shopping." Google has been in the product listing and search business for about a decade. During that time, it has provided merchants with free access to shoppers. The company made money by running paid product search ads along with the organic, or unpaid, product listings, according to Eric Best, CEO of Mercent, which helps retailers sell through Google and other e-commerce websites such as Inc and eBay Inc. "Today, that model goes away," Best said. "It's a very big deal."

Author's Note: Even though my son is halfway through junior high these days, it seems like only yesterday he was scampering off to kindergarten. Every year feels like a big leap year, but that year was still the biggest leap so far, and this is still one of my all-time favorite columns. The tears started when I began to compose a thank you letter to my son’s teacher. Trying to put down on paper all of the amazing things he had learned in kindergarten – about the “bossy E,� who was simply silent when I went to school; about raising your hand to get attention, rather than shouting or pulling on shirtsleeves; about using sign language when you need to go to the bathroom; about taking turns and waiting patiently; that gray wolves mate for life and that little acorns grow into great big oaks – proved an impossible task. I just kept smearing the ink with my big, sloppy, sentimental mommy tears. Kindergarten is such a big year in so many ways. Sure,

Small changes equal big results using calorie math PEDIATRICS IN PARADISE

Did you know that losing weight could be as easy as 5th grade math? Complicated diet schemes really aren’t necessary once you learn the basics of “calorie math”. How many calories does your body need? A calorie is a unit of energy. Each of us needs a different number of daily calories depending on our physical build, metabolic rate and activity level. Calorie math is simple. A person who eats more calories than they use will gain weight. A person who consumes the same number of calories as they burn, will maintain their weight and a person who ingests fewer calories than their body uses, will lose weight.

Putting “calorie math” to use Fact #1: One pound of weight equals 3,500 calories. Doing the math, a person who eats 500 calories less per day can lose about a pound in 7 days. By eating 250 calories less per day, one would lose a pound about every two weeks or 26 pounds in a year! Fact #2: Running a mile burns about 100 calories. A person who keeps their calorie intake stable, but wants to “run off” a pound a week would have to run 35 miles per week or about 5 miles a day! That is ambi-

tious for even an PEDIATRICS avid runner.

going to Texas,” Stoker said. Stoker and Hodge at the beginning of Thursday’s forum also made a point to acknowledge former Assemblyman Pedro Nava, who sat in the front row directly in front of Hodge for the beginning of the forum. Nava has feuded politically with Jackson for years. Hodge took a backhanded jab at current assemblyman Das Williams. “Since he left office, I see him more than any other current Assemblymember,” Hodge said. Stoker later said Nava was a great example of a Democrat who worked in bipartisan way to get things done in Sacramento. It all fell within their narrative of painting Jackson as an environmental ideologue, and out-of-touch Democrat, who was part of the reason why California got into its current fiscal mess. Stoker said California needs to allow slant oil drilling to help build the economy. “We don’t need new platforms,” Stoker said. “We can do a lot of this exploration and development with slant oil drilling.” Jackson fired back with “we’ve got to get rid of our dependence on fossil fuels.

We need to transfer from dependence on fossil fuels to renewable energies.” All three candidates at various points received ovations from the crowd, mostly made up of the business community and activists from each campaign. Jackson said that she was best poised to go to Sacramento. She wants to reinvest in colleges and universities, create green jobs and develop programs that target at-risk children in the first grade — before they end up in the prison system. “The prison system in California is a mess,” Jackson said. “We need to address the issues of crime at the earliest possible stage.” Even that was a point of contention between Stoker and Jackson. “I’m not sold on the first-grade intervention being the first line of defense in this,” Stoker said. Stoker said he would urge state government to dramatically cut its workforce like the private sector has. Stoker supports a two-tier pension system; Jackson does not. Hodge said California must create new jobs quickly, because job growth will take care of much of the state’s financial problems. The latest campaign finance reports show that Jackson raised $218,024 in the last quarter and has a total of $491,764 in

contributions. She has $158,975 cash on hand. Hodge raised $195,013 during the last reporting period, for a total of $338,416. He has $132,246 in the bank. Jackson has made hay of the fact that about 75 percent of Hodge’s money comes from the Bay Area and Sacramento special interest groups. Hodge’s wife is Fiona Ma, a the Assembly Speaker Pro Tempore. At the end of Thursday’s debate, Hodge seemed unaffected by suggestions that he doesn’t have support in the district. After Jackson left the event early because she had an engagement in Oxnard, Hodge seemed proud of the amount of money he has raised.. “I apologize to anyone who likes ‘Dancing With The Stars,’” Hodge said. “I bought the whole show last week.”

Developer pours another $100K into Measure Y NEWS



With the election less than a week away, the Measure Y campaign got a fresh infusion of $100,000 in its coffers from developer Mark Lee. Campaign contribution papers show Lee’s company, Peak-Las Positas, gave the money Wednesday, bringing the total contribution to the “Yes� campaign to $250,000, all from Lee. Calls to Lee were not immediately returned. Most of the money spent so far has gone to political consultants, direct mail postage, printing and graphics, and marketing experts. By contrast, the No on Y


campaign holds roughly $27,000 in funds. Santa Barbara City Council member Cathy Murillo, an ardent opponent of the measure, called Lee’s latest donation, “unbelievable� but said the No campaign would be working hard to get its message out to the public. “We hope the voters find the facts on this issue despite the huge amount of money being spent by the ‘Yes on Y’ campaign,� Murillo said. Passing the measure would allow a bridge to be built over Arroyo Burro Creek on Las Positas to provide vehicular access to the planned Veronica Spring Meadows, a 25-unit housing project in the


Some add new ramps or divert traffic to other streets, and adjust the train tracks to make room for future commuter rail. Rob Dayton, principal transportation planner for the city, said that F-modified appeared to be the best option for the city as it allowed a second northbound off ramp, keeping traffic from spilling onto Coast Village Road. “F-modified is probably where we’re going to end up,� Dayton said. However Dayton said staff felt the EIR left many questions unanswered, such as effects on the bird refuge, visual impacts to city views, and potential conflicts with city plans. Some members of the public agreed. Bob Short, representing the influential Montecito Association, said the report didn’t meet CEQA guidelines and gave a Power Point presentation listing interchange alternatives that hadn’t been considered, studies not mentioned, and other details.

Las Positas valley. Though Lee owns the property the houses will be constructed on, the bridge impinges on public parkland and can only be approved with a vote from the public. The measure has stoked some fierce fighting as its supporters claim it will allow 1,800 square feet of creek restoration, a six acre park, and safe bicycle and pedestrian access to Arroyo Burro Beach. Its opponents claim that it’s just a giveaway to the developer, does much more damage to the creek than the restoration can fix, and sets a bad precedent for giving away public land.

Short said the Association had found the report so lacking that it couldn’t endorse any of the construction options. “We do not even make a recommendation at this time because there’s too much missing information, we feel, to intelligently make one,� Short said. Commissioners also pushed for another hearing. Under normal procedures, the final EIR would not go to the commission and the next time the commissioner saw the projects would be after an alternative had been chosen. Commissioner Deborah Schwartz felt that the project is too important for the commission to have just one opportunity to weigh in. “We cannot get to a point where it’s two-thirds baked and our comments are really just, ‘Thank you for sharing,’� Schwartz said. After consulting with staff, the commissioners pushed to have another meeting. After consulting with Caltrans officials and city staff the commission agreed to meet again on June 14th for another hearing to focus on the five alternatives.

friend, we did meet a lot of nice people and I know that most of them will remain in our lives for a very long time. But we’ll never be in kindergarten again and I can’t help but wish I had spent a little more time volunteering in the classroom. Maybe baked a cookie or two, instead of always buying them. Maybe re-learn how to bake, so that I could actually mean it when I say that. Although, I know that I would still feel guilty even if I had never missed a volunteer opportunity and had been a Martha Stewart lunatic about making perfect goodies for every event. Koss would rather have Oreos anyway, I reminded myself, as I un-packaged the cookies after the end-of-the-year play. Whether it was their first child to

For the finale, when the children signed and sang along to Louis Armstrong’s “What a Wonderful World,” there wasn’t a dry eye in house. Then Ms. Geritz gave them each a memory book with a poem that said they would take a piece of them with her wherever they went. Sorry if my big, sloppy, sentimental mommy tears smudged your paper.

political rise that put him on the Democrats' 2004 White House ticket, but the one-time trial lawyer held his head high on Thursday after a North Carolina jury delivered his most personal victory yet. Twelve jurors in the state Edwards represented in the U.S. Senate from 1999 to 2005 acquitted him on one count of accepting illegal campaign contributions given during his bid for the Democratic presidential nomination four years ago. U.S. District Judge Catherine Eagles declared a mistrial on five other counts because the jury was deadlocked about whether Edwards, 58, took money from two wealthy donors to keep voters from learning he

was cheating on his cancerstricken wife, Elizabeth, with a campaign videographer. The jury's decision on the ninth day of deliberations capped a nearly six-weeklong trial that included salacious testimony more befitting of a soap opera than a campaign for the country's highest political office. Jurors heard about tawdry affair details, furtive phone calls and secret donor checks written under the guise of buying furniture, as former campaign workers and supporters painted an unflattering portrait of Edwards. The trial's outcome marked yet another dramatic turn of events for the two-time presidential hopeful who beat a Republican incumbent senator in his first political race and became the Democrats' vice presidential nominee just

six years later. As the jury's verdict was read, Edwards, who did not testify during the trial and faced possible fines and prison time if convicted, slumped back in his seat in relief. Later, standing in front of the federal courthouse in Greensboro, he maintained his innocence and choked up as he spoke of his affection for the 4-year-old daughter he fathered with then-mistress Rielle Hunter. "While I do not believe I did anything illegal, or ever thought I was doing anything illegal, I did an awful, awful lot that was wrong, and there is no one else responsible for my sins," he said, flanked by his parents and 30-year-old daughter, Cate, who stood by him throughout the proceedings.
