Body Sewage rates to increase found on beach NEWS

Sheriff to probe death

A man’s body washed up on Gaviota beach Saturday morning. The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death. The man’s body was found near an area of the beach called Poison Oak Point. The man’s death does not appear to be suspicious, authorities said. The Sheriff’s Coroner’s Bureau has identified the man, who lived in the Santa Barbara area, but has not released the man’s name. — Daily Sound Staff

Santa Barbara is raising its water and wastewater fees to make upgrades to the city’s aging sewers after outcry and lawsuit from environmental group ChannelKeeper. The City Council will meet this afternoon to approve a rate increase for water service of 3.5 percent while wastewater rates will be up 10 percent across the board for the 2013 fiscal year. All rate increases will be in effect July 1. “The condition of the city’s pipes and plants are not up to par, “ said ChannelKeeper Executive Director Kira Redmond. “There were studies done that showed an increase in sewage material along the coast due to a high number of sewage spills.” With the proposed rates for fresh water, a single family home that uses an average of 12 hundred cubic feet (HCF) of water per month would see its water bill increased by $2.29 per month to $67.71. “Upgrades are always necessary,” said Mayor Helene Schneider. “There is always room to improve. It adds to the over all quality of the system for the long term.” For the waste water increase, six percent will go directly into upgrading sewage systems in accordance with the lawsuit filed for violations of the Clean Water Act, while four percent will be used to offset the increased cost of operation, according to the proposal. The number of pipes and repairs taking place will double with the new revenue, Schneider said.

Upgrades range from replacing and repairing pipes to helping with the cost of construction of the Ortega ground water plant. Santa Barbara was plagued by an increased number of sewage spills over the last decade and but has recently faired better with attentive maintenance. It’s just happening too slowly, Redmond said. “From how many sewage spills we have had [in Santa Barbara], its clear our waste water management system needs to be upgraded,” she said. “We felt it was necessary to file suit so that the upgrades would accelerate and keep fecal bacteria from spilling into the ground and finding its way to the Channel.”

Apple declares war on Google

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) — Apple Inc took the wraps off its own mobile mapping service and improved the search capabilities of its Siri voice assistant, taking the fight into Google Inc's domain. CEO Tim Cook, who took over from late co-founder Steve Jobs last August, spearheaded the unveiling of new services — such as inhouse mapping, beefed-up Siri software, address-bar search on its Safari browser — to help keep at bay Google and its fast-growing Android mobile platform. Apple tweaked several features in its mobile operating system to try to enhance its ability to entice users to stay within its ecosystem. The upgrades marked a bolstering of Apple's arsenal as it tries to keep its top-down applications and hardware environment ahead of competition from Android device makers such as Samsung Electronics and Motorola Mobility. But the highlight was the debut of Apple's inhouse mapping service after years of development, a direct challenge to the same Google service that is one of the most popular functions on both Android smartphones and the iPhone. Apple's new mobile software -- the iOS6 -will be available in the fall. It comes with a mapping system "built from the ground up," said software chief Scott Forstall. It will be replacing Google Maps, until now a pre-loaded app on the iPhone and iPad, with its own in-house map service, delivering a big blow to Google, which gets about half its mobile map traffic from Apple mobile devices.

Apple CEO Tim Cook speaks during the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference 2012 in San Francisco yesterday.

The move signals how the friendship between the two tech giants -- former Google CEO Eric Schmidt once sat on Apple's board -- has become a bitter rivalry shaping the evolution of the mobile industry. Late co-founder Jobs was famously quoted as saying he was willing to go "thermonuclear" on the search leader, after it decided to position Android against the iPhone. Now Apple will do its utmost to reduce its reliance on Google, said Colin Gillis, analyst with BGC Partners. "What happens if one day Google decides to not provide Apple with maps," said Gillis.

Wanna donate? Just text it

Campaigns and political groups can now receive donations through text messaging, thanks to a new ruling by federal election regulators that creates a new cash-gathering tool in this election year's race to raise unprecedented amounts. The Federal Election Commission on Monday gave its unanimous approval to allow candidates' political action committees to collect contributions submitted via text messaging, a near-instant way to garner small-donor cash often viewed as a sign of grassroots support.

British PM leaves daughter, 8, in pub

Prime Minister David Cameron accidentally left his daughter behind in a country pub after a Sunday lunch with friends following a mix-up over which car she was meant to be going home in, his Downing Street office said on Monday. Cameron was swiftly reunited with 8-year-old Nancy, one of his three young children, but the incident will add fuel to critics who accuse him of being overly fond of relaxing, or "chillaxing" as he has called it, when not dealing with affairs of state. Its disclosure in the Sun newspaper has the potential to embarrass Cameron, coming on the day the government launched a fresh drive to tackle "problem families" who lead chaotic lives and cost taxpayers millions of pounds in policing and welfare costs.

Cash Unexpectedly Found In Cars

The economy is wreaking havoc on everyone's finances these days. Along with predictable living expenses, the burden of unexpected debts such as medical or family emergencies, and home or car repair, can prove overwhelming. For anyone who has experienced credit issues, including a bankruptcy, finding sources of cash can be challenging. A creative financing solution exists -- borrowing against the equity (value) in any car for which the driver holds the title. This is called a "title loan", and Santa Barbara-based ACT Finance has recently launched a division that specializes in this type of loan. In exchange for the title, ACT will give the borrower half the vehicle's current value in cash. Customers continue driving their cars while repaying the loan. ACT title loans have no prepayment penalty and can be paid off at any time. It's a win-win for anyone in need of a short-term loan. For more information about title loans, call ACT Finance at (805) 434-8008 or visit www.actfinance.net. PAID ADVERTISEMENT

We’ve heard it, and we agree. We miss the uncensored, raw comments that used to be a main feature of www.thedailysound.com. In the old days (pre-Sept. 2011), the reader feedback portion of The Daily Sound was the go-to site for trolls, hacks, and cowards with a vendetta. It’s kind of that way with all news site that allow anonymous comments. Stories about politics degenerate into attacks on liberals and conservatives. Crime stories often shamefully turn into forums where sexists and racists would launch attacks on those arrested, or even the victims. In this world of new media, news sites, that allow anonymous commenting rarely become a forum for intellectual discourse, but instead turn into a platform for any hack with an opinion to get published. But it made for great web traffic. Still, The Daily Sound dropped anonymous commenting when it launched a new web site last September. Readers can still comment, but they have to identify themselves in some way. The most common method is through Facebook. After the change, Daily Sound commenting dropped off by 75 percent. It’s funny how racists and sexists and general haters disappear when they have to stand by their comments in public. Suddenly, most of the comments now are positive ones. Commenters now say

nice things about nice people or thank a journalist for writing “a good story.” One of the most frequent comments we hear on the street now is that people want the anonymous commenting back – not because they want to comment, but because they like reading the train wreck created by those who do. Sorry. That doesn’t look like it is going to happen anytime soon. The Daily Sound abandoned the anonymous comments because it’s just not fair or responsible to allow the hate speech to go published without accountability. It’s the same reason why letters to the editor in mainstream newspapers traditionally have published the names and city the resident lives in. Behind the scenes opinion page editors usually call or email the letter writer to confirm that they do exist and that they did write those comments. In our efforts to professionalize the online commenting, we lost web traffic, and we are OK with that. About the closest to the old Daily Sound that you will find in the Santa Barbara area is at Santa Barbara View. Although the site allows people to comment without publicly identifying

Kings crowned cup champs

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) — The Los Angeles Kings were crowned National Hockey League champions after a convincing 6-1 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Monday that landed the 45-year old franchise its first Stanley Cup. After failing to clinch their maiden championship in the previous two games of the series, the Kings settled any nerves with three first period goals while Steve Bernier was serving a game-misconduct penalty for a hit that left Rob Scuderi with blood pouring from his mouth. "It's a little hectic right now, I'm getting pulled all over the place but this is

pretty amazing," said Kings forward Mike Richards. "You don't know how it's going to feel until you actually do it." Los Angeles wasted no time making the Devils pay for the Bernier penalty with captain Dustin Brown, Jeff Carter and Trevor Lewis all scoring in a span of less than four minutes to leave New Jersey in a 3-0 hole. The Kings kept their foot on the Devils' throats as Jeff Carter scored his second goal of the game 90 seconds into an ill-tempered second period that saw New Jersey's frustrations result in a string of penalties. Rookie forward Adam Henrique gave the Devils some hope at forcing a deci-

sive seventh game in the series when he scored with 75 seconds to play in the second period to spoil Jonathan Quick's shutout bid. The goal, however, could not spoil the party as the Kings added two more goals in the third period to clinch the series 42, touching off a raucous celebration for the home crowd that spilled onto the streets surrounding the Staples Center. With the Stanley Cup and its white gloved entourage in the building, the champagne on ice and a long-suffering fan base ready to celebrate the end of a long championship drought, the countdown was on as the sellout crowd entered full party mode.

DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT The Santa Barbara Police Department arrested a 26-year-old man recently after he allegedly forced a woman to drive to a Los Angeles motel room where he raped her. Police arrested Jorge Luis Diaz, who is also a registered sex offender, on June 7. Police said that he approached the woman at 8:20 a.m. in Santa Barbara on June 6 as she was walking to her car in Santa Barbara to go to work.

The woman had a restraining order against Diaz. Authorities said the man forced her into her own vehicle, where he took her keys and drove her to the Los Angeles area. Police said he got a motel room and then raped the woman. After the attack, police said he drove the woman, 22, back to Santa Barbara and let her go, but only after she promised him that she wouldn’t tell authorities. Police arrested Diaz outside his home

on the 400 block of South Canada Street. Police said he had a crack pipe on him at the time of his arrest. Diaz told authorities that he victim wanted to drive to Los Angeles and that the sex was consensual. Diaz was booked at the Santa Barbara County Jail on suspicion of kidnapping with the intent to commit rape, rape, and oral copulation. He was also booked on the misdemeanors of violation of a court order and possession of drug paraphernalia. His bail amount is $1 million.

After more than three years of debate, the Goleta Planning Commission on Monday gave a green light to a new 100-unit housing project off of Los Carneros Road. The Towbes Group is looking to expand on its Willow Springs Apartments with Willow Springs II. It’s a 100-unit housing project with one, two, and three bedroom apartments in a condominium-style spread over 4.92 acres on a 6 acre property, including 20 affordable housing units. It will connect with the current Willow Springs Apartments with a 2.37 acre open space in between. The commission had to make eight separate votes just to approve the project for the City Council’s consideration. “It’s a project with a lot of pieces, but not necessarily difficult,” Commission chair Jonny Wallis said. While smaller than its neighbor, the estimated $20 million project is one of the largest the city is taking on. Towbes Group president Craig Zimmerman said the project would provide hundreds of construction jobs in the area as housing for See TOWBES, page 10

APPLE

NEWS

Hewlett-Packard, Dell Inc and other PC makers. Analysts have speculated that the company will begin aggressively competing on price, gradually shrinking the premium its Macs carry in general. More than ever, Apple finds itself in a pitched battle with Google: in smartphones, cloud computing, and a neverending competition to attract the best software developers. That is crucial as Apple looks to draw users deeper into its applications ecosystem. Cook told the audience that customers have downloaded more than 30 billion Apple apps so far, choosing from more than 650,000 apps -- the largest library in the industry. Battling in many arenas, the rivals employ different weapons. Apple's viselike grip on its ecosystem - with the closely managed app store and seamless integration with hardware - stands in stark contrast to Google's free-for-all approach. The open system approach, reminiscent of Microsoft Corp's hugely successful strategy of creating standard-setting software that runs on a variety of hardware, has allowed Android to capture the market lead in smartphones, albeit with nothing close to Apple's profit margins. Android has also helped create several potent hardware rivals to Apple. Samsung Electronics' Android-driven Galaxy SIII is drawing favorable comparisons to iPhone and Amazon.com Inc's cheaper Kindle Fire is challenging Apple in tablets and digital content.

Goleta’s expanding business. Considering the wait, he’s pleased with the night’s outcome. “We’ve been planning on doing this for years so it’s really nice to have unanimous support from the planning commission,” Zimmerman said. While almost any new development requires several permits, a number of factors led to a planning process tangle. The site had been designated an Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Area, but a biological study indicated it didn’t meet the requirements for that designation and the commission needed to exempt it from ESHA regulations. Prior to Goleta’s incorporation, Santa Barbara County had zoned the area as industrial. In 2006, the city council rezoned it residential under the general plan and the commission needed to repeal the old county plan. The Towbes Group is also applying for a condominium development rather than an apartment development. Condominiums allow for more amenities and while selling the buildings isn’t out of the picture, Towbes representatives said they intend to keep it as a rental property, noting a better market for rentals. Housing is becoming an issue as Goleta works to cement its status as a Central Coast technology and business mecca. Companies like ATK, FLIR, Deckers Outdoor and CitrixOnline already have a large presence in the city. Adding in the Goleta Entrepreneurial Magnet program, a recent partnership with UCSB and the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce to bring more business to the city, housing is going to be critical in the future. Kristen Miller, President of the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce, said in focus groups conducted for the program potential entrepreneurs had listed lack of access to appropriate housing had been a barrier to starting up in Goleta. The existing Willow Springs Apartments have an occupancy rate of 98 percent, an indication that it’s the type of housing that potential employees are looking for. And while tech and executive jobs offer higher pay, housing costs still remains an issue with prices in the Santa Barbara area almost double that of other parts of the county. New rentals like Willow Springs offer a chance for people to get in on the ground level or time to transition to a new home. The demand for new development is also spurred by low housing turnover. Unlike some communities, the good weather and small town feel appeals to retirees as much as young professionals. That means homes are getting tied down longer. The commission seemed to understand the issue, the commission almost took more time voting for the project than actual discussion. “It’s a big project for our city,” Wallis said. “And I think our actions here tonight indicate that we think it’s a good one.” FROM PAGE 6

fied that House didn’t write the letter. The Independent apologized and reporter Chris Meagher, who once worked at The Daily Sound, tweeted “The Independent apologizes to Grant House.” Here’s the actually apology: “With Apologies to Grant House On June 2, we posted on on-line letter incorrectly bearing the by-line of Santa Barbara City Councilmember Grant House that was highly critical of President Barack Obama. Councilmember House, we subsequently found out, did not write the letter, nor does the letter reflect his views about Obama or his party. Since its publication, the letter has created a stir in local Democratic circles giving rise to considerable speculation and comment. The mistake, we are embarrassed to admit, was entirely ours. Our apologies to Grant House for whatever flak he took because we saw fit to stick our foot in his mouth. Our apologies also to the actual author of the letter, Grant Marcus.” Here’s what House told the Indy about the letter: “I am horrified that this was published in my name and even more so if anyone were to believe it came from me,” Grant House, Councilmember, City of Santa Barbara. Hmm. When you can’t trust the name behind the letter, maybe anonymous commenting isn’t so bad afterall.

the letter. House is a liberal Democrat. It was hard to believe that even if House or any high-profile Democrat believed such a thing about the president that he would choose to publish it online. Find the column here: http://www.independent.com/news/2012/jun/0 2/ex-democrat/ First rule of Santa Barbara politics: If you want to get anywhere in this town politically, you have to play nice. You can’t burn your bridges, or betray your political backs, and you especially cannot do it in print. How could Grant House do this? Well, he didn’t. The Independent attributed the wrong name to the letter. It wasn’t Democratic City Councilman Grant House, it was a guy named Grant Marcus. Doh! Well, mistakes happen and that’s just how it goes in print sometimes. Journalists 98 percent of the time are responsible and do a great job of printing information accurately. Still, it was embarrassing for the Independent, particularly since Cheri Rae read the letter, assumed it was written by House, and wrote a column on Sunday noting that she herself felt let down and disappointed, not in Obama, but in House for his public service the last few years.
