Fresh & Easy draws crowds, but faces city appeal over size
DAILY SOUND Photos/ Victor Maccharoli
Fresh & Easy opened to huge fanfare on Wednesday, drawing large crowds and jamming its parking lot with eager customers.
BY CODY BRUMBAUGH DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER
Supermarket cooperation Fresh & Easy opened the doors to its first Santa Barbara store on Milpas Street Wednesday under a 30day permit from the city. In the same location as the old Fairview Market, the building has come under some scrutiny. Although the building is up to code and meets all safety regulations, neighbors of the
store are appealing some of the designs, which is why it opened with a 30-day permit. Dino Frangos owns a store next door to the new market and is mostly worried about the height of the wall on the south end of the parking lot. “I wish Fresh & Easy the best and hope they succeed,” he said. “They made some promises to build in a certain way and I just want them to keep those promises.” City planner Bettie Weiss doesn’t expect there to be a
problem getting the full permit, which is up for appeal to the city on June 19. “It’s a commercial structure, and we wanted to make sure there were quality designs and that it would be safe,” she said. “We want to keep our neighbors happy.” City Council member Grant House said its important that developers honor their promises to community members and the city has a tradition of holding them accountable.
As for Fresh & Easy, House said the Eastside needs a store like this to help infuse retail energy into the area. “[Fresh and Easy] is a great business, I think it will be a nice uplift,” said White. “It will really be a chance for that part of Milpas to get a breath of fresh air.” Even with out a full permit, the market opened with a bang. Fresh & Easy markets are known for their healthy choices and low prices and See FRESH, page 6

Flag to fly at Lobero BY KELLEY DRECHSLER DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT
A 30 x 60 foot Memorial American Flag will fly at the back wall of the Lobero Theatre for 56 minutes in honor of the victims of 9/11 at 12:30 p.m. today.
“It’s a chilling moment— it’s chilling when you see it there,” said Paul Lamberton, director of the Spirit of ’76 Association, which has raised funds for the flag. When asked of the significance of the Lobero Theatre, Lamberton explained that the building has the appropriate
atmosphere for hanging a patriotic flag. “It’s a landmark building,” he said in observation to the rich history of Santa Barbara as well as of the United States. When the flag starts flying, the public is welcome to bike, drive, or march down
Anacapa Street toward East Canon Perdido Street for those 56 minutes, he said. During this time, Lamberton wants the public to observe the amount of time it took for the South Tower of the World Trade Center to collapse in the attacks against the United See FLAG, page XX

NEWS IN BRIEF
Billionaire to give Romney $10M
U.S. casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, whose millions helped prop up the now-defunct presidential bid of Newt Gingrich, is ready to give another $10 million to the Super PAC backing presumed Republican nominee Mitt Romney, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday citing sources with knowledge of the matter. The donation would make the billionaire Las Vegas gambling mogul the largest donor to the so-called "super" political action committee (PAC) Restore Our Future. Restore Our Future does not comment on its donors or donations and Adelson's spokesman could not be reached for comment.
CNN drops John King show
CNN said on Wednesday it was canceling John King's daily TV show "John King, USA," and shifting the veteran journalist to head up its 2012 presidential campaign coverage. King's show will end on June 29, and Wolf Blitzer's "The Situation Room" will be extended to three hours to replace King's time slot at 6 p.m. EDT, CNN said. King, 48, who joined CNN in 1997 and served as White House correspondent, will provide reports to other CNN shows. CNN said the changes would help bolster its coverage of the 2012 race to the White House.
Civil Grand Jury wants county to move quickly to halt truancy problem Truancy has more than doubled in three years BY NICK C. TONKIN
DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER
The Santa Barbara County Grand Jury is recommending that the county implement truancy reduction programs by the start of the 2012-2013 school year. Last year the jury authored a report “Where is the Truancy Program in Santa Barbara County?” recommending that the County of Santa Barbara, the Office of the District Attorney, the Santa Barbara County Education Office and Santa Barbara County school districts develop anti-truancy programs. The previous report found truancies spiked from 20 percent to 48 percent since the
county cut its anti-truancy programs in 2008. After forming a subcommittee to work out the issue, the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors endorsed the programs’ restoration in May. “The Grand Jury has been closely following the progress of this subcommittee and has been impressed with the deep commitment of the representatives of the various participating agencies,” Sten said in a written statement. The program is expected to cost around $170,000 for a dedicated deputy district attorney and staff member to oversee the program. At the board meeting in May first district supervisor Salud Carbajal said the pro-

gram could help students stay on track and turn their lives around. “This is an extraordinary opportunity to put a program back in place that will help us salvage our children,” Carbajal said at the meeting. The board agreed to look into funding the program during budget hearings. Grand Jury Foreman Ted Sten applauded the county’s efforts. Enforcement will work in a
series of levels starting with a letter to parents, then after school meetings with parents and students, a truancy mediation team, or a school attendance board. Districts throughout the county will be handling policies individually. A student is considered truant when he or she has more than three days or 18 periods of unexcused absences.

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

For Greater Glory: 4 stars, inspiring CINEMA IN FOCUS
Dean Wright (Director) and Michael Love (Writer) bring to the screen the inspiring and tragic story of the Cristeros War in Mexico (1926-29) where the government tried unsuccessfully, but brutally, to rid the country of the influence of the Catholic Church. Like Mel Gibson’s “The Passion Of The Christ,” this film is “R” rated and is not for the faint of heart as it portrays graphically the extent that an evil government is willing to go to fight with God. Although this is a film of historical significance to Mexico, filmed in Mexico, and supported by the Mexican Film Fund, the producers chose to broaden its appeal in North America by using some internationally known American actors and filming the story in English. While the facts may be distinctly tied to a period of Mexican history, the imagery and evil portrayed is universal and often harks back to images of the Roman Empire in its quest to crush the early Christian movement as a threat to their political power. The Cristeros War is a fascinating and troubling period in Mexican history that had a spillover impact on California as a refuge for those who wanted religious freedom. The genesis of the rebellion had its roots in the adoption of a new Mexican Constitution in 1917 that gave broad powers to the government at every level to restrict the impact of the Catholic Church. Much of the world at that time was following the emergence of socialism in Europe and Russia, and in Mexico there was an attempt to implement these same atheistic reforms under the guise of “separation of church and state.” “For Greater Glory” gives us a glimpse of three elements of this universal battle. The first is the impact of personal courage and Christian example lived out in front of their persecutors. Father Christopher (Peter O’Toole) is an elderly priest
BY DENNY WAYMAN AND HAL CONKLIN
who chooses to defy the government’s ban on saying the Mass, and he refuses to abandon his parish even though his townspeople plead with him to leave. His martyrdom has a profound impact on a young boy, Jose Luis Sanchez del Rio (Mauricio Kuri), who ultimately gives his life in martyrdom himself when he follows Father Christopher’s example and will not denounce Christ in front of his family and the army. Jose’s martyrdom motivated leaders to come forth to fight the evil being perpetuated by the government. The second element of truth is the fact that no amount of brutality or harsh political treatment can escape moral judgment. Mexican President Plutarco Elias Calles (Ruben Blades) follows the path of Stalin and tries to crush the church by executing priests in the street to set an example of his power. One graphic scene shows many believers hung from telephone poles stretching into the horizon similar to the crosses the Romans would line up down a road to make their point. The unintended consequence was that a highly decorated military leader Enrique Gorostieta Velarde (Andy Garcia), rose up to lead thousands of “Cristeros” in a fight to challenge President Calles and ultimately defeating his plan. Enrique Velarde was not a deep believer, but his moral outrage and the courage of the Cristeros moved him to action, even though it put his
family at great risk. He was among the best military strategists in Mexico and his skill galvanized the many anti-government groups that were operating independently into an army. The final lesson of the film is that although evil may be suppressed at any point in history, it has not been eliminated. Armed conflict may bring an end to an unjust war, but it doesn’t transform peoples’ hearts into pure love in a way exemplified by Christ. Ongoing discernment and sacrifice, living out moral courage as an example in front of others, and standing up for what is right in the political process is a necessity every day. It isn’t something we recognize as just a contribution in the past. The Cristeros War may have ended in 1929, but in Mexico it is still illegal to hold a Mass outdoors or for a priest to hold a public office. We are never more than a few moments, steps, or actions away from evil remerging and assuming leadership in our midst. Discussion for those who have seen this film: 1. Why do you think government is so fearful of the Christian faith? Why does it attempt to silence pastors and priests? 2. When the Christians were killed by Rome and by Mexico it strengthens the faith. Why do you think this is? 3. What will you do when government attempts to impede your religious freedoms? ________________

Armstrong faces new doping allegations
(Reuters) The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) has brought formal doping charges against U.S. cyclist Lance Armstrong and he has been immediately banned from competition in triathlons as a result, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday. Armstrong, a seven-time Tour de France winner, denied the charges in a statement: "I have never doped, and, unlike many of my accusers, I have competed as an endurance athlete for 25

States on 9/11. The all-volunteer Spirit of ’76 Association has donated the money, time, and effort to bring the flag back to the public eye after two years of no celebration. The flag has been hidden from view simply due to limits ensued by physics. The flag, which weighs less than 200 pounds, has such a large surface that it can fly only under mild weather conditions.
years with no spike in performance, passed more than 500 drug tests and never failed one." The Post cited a 15-page charging letter by the USADA. It said the agency, which oversees anti-doping in Olympic sports in the United States, was empowered to bring charges that could lead to suspension from competition and the rescinding of awards but did have not authority to bring criminal charges. A spokesman for the USADA was not
As with a sail on a sailboat, strong winds will put pressure on the flag, which will then put pressure on the building. A historical building like the Lobero Theatre can withstand only so much pressure. “It can be an engineering nightmare, if it’s windy,” Lamberton said. It will take the Lobero Theatre staff approximately three to four hours to put the flag up on Thursday morning. The Lobero staff will wake up early, at 8 a,m. to set up the flag that means so much to locals who still grieve about the losses from 9/11.
immediately available to comment. Armstrong said: "These are the very same charges and the same witnesses that the Justice Department chose not to pursue after a two-year investigation." In February, the U.S. Justice Department dropped an investigation centered on whether Armstrong and his teammates cheated the sponsor of their bike racing team with a secret doping program.
“It’s called the Garrison Flag, which means it’s the largest flag in the community,” said Paul Lamberton, who explained that the community usually makes a big deal out of this event. “People ask, ‘Why isn’t the flag up?’” said Lamberton. “It is a lot of work. It’s kind of like flying a parachute.” The Spirit of ’76 Association raised approximately $5,000 for materials to make and hang the flag. “It’s the same size flag that was on the Pentagon on 9/11,” explained Lamberton. In fact, the flag is a replica
of the American flag that was displayed at the U.S. Pentagon following the attacks on September 11, 2001. The flag will also be displayed at the Fourth of July Concert in the Sunken Gardens at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse on July 4th at 1 p.m. Also on July 4th, the Spirit of ’76 Association will celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Fourth of July Parade, which will include another flying of the flag.

(Reuters) - So far, President Barack Obama has not been able to convince most Americans that they are better off than they were four years ago. His next step may be to try to convince them that they would be worse off under his Republican rival, Mitt Romney. In an economic speech on Thursday that could set the tone for months of campaigning, Obama is not likely to unveil new ideas to boost the economy and create new jobs, according to Democrats familiar with the preparations for the address. Instead, he will make the case that he needs four more years to undo the damage left by George W. Bush, his Republican predecessor in the White House, and argue that a President Romney would bring back the weak financial regulation and budget-busting tax cuts of the Bush years. Obama already is making this argument to small groups of supporters. "The last thing we want to do is return to the very policies that got us into this mess," he said at a fundraiser in Baltimore on Tuesday. The strategy carries risks for Obama. Too much finger-pointing could diminish his presidential status and lead voters to question whether he is ducking responsibility, analysts say. The strategy defies the widely held view among political analysts that most voters decide whether to fire or re-hire an incumbent president based on his own record. And an overly negative campaign could invite unflattering contrast with the "hope and change" motto that carried Obama to victory in 2008. But many Democrats believe that Obama must put his achievements into context by explaining that he has spent his first term digging out from a disaster that was brought on by a Republican
presidency. They point out that the recovery hasn't been any more lackluster than those that followed recessions in 2001 and 1991; the difference is that the economy is digging out of a much deeper hole. The 69,000 jobs added last month, while not nearly enough, should be measured against the 800,000 jobs that disappeared the month Obama took office, Democratic activists say. "Even though 2007 was five years ago, it's very important to explain to people how we got to where we are," said Jared Bernstein, a former economic adviser to Vice President Joe Biden. Democrats also are aware that while Romney remains largely undefined to many voters, the budget-slashing policies of the former Massachusetts governor's fellow Republicans in Congress have spooked many Americans. Democrats also see some evidence that the Obama campaign's attacks on Romney's record as a private equity executive may be resonating with voters, despite the objections of prominent Democratic allies such as former President Bill Clinton. A slew of weak data has led economists in recent weeks to ratchet back their expectations for U.S. economic growth. A Reuters poll published on Wednesday found economists expect the nation's Gross Domestic Product to expand at only a 2 percent annual rate in the second quarter. Projections for hiring also have been cut. According to the poll, the economy is likely to add an average of 147,000 jobs a month between now and October, too few to make much of a dent in the nation's 8.2 percent jobless rate. As the economic recovery threatens to stall for the third summer in a row, voters are registering deep doubts about
Obama's leadership, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Tuesday. More now believe Romney would be stronger than Obama in dealing with the economy and creating jobs. A White House news conference on Friday compounded Obama's problems when he said that the U.S. private sector is doing "just fine." The gaffe obscured his larger point that Republican-backed austerity has undercut the recovery by forcing layoffs of teachers and other public employees. "I don't think the president, for all of his narrative gifts, which are enormous, has done a very good job up to now of integrating the economic difficulties of recent years into a broader story about the future of the American economy," said William Galston, a former adviser to Clinton. Democrats believe that Obama already has laid out plenty of ideas for improving the economy that have been blocked by Republicans in Congress, such as spending to improve the nation's transportation network and helping local governments avoid further layoffs of teachers and firefighters. Obama will face a nearcertain loss in the November 6 election if he does not shift the campaign's storyline away from his economic track record, three Democratic strategists wrote in a memo released on Tuesday. "We will face an impossible headwind in November if we do not move to a new narrative, one that contextualizes the recovery but, more importantly, focuses on what we will do to make a better future for the middle class," strategists Stan Greenberg, James Carville and Erica Seifert wrote. In focus groups, voters told the three strategists that they have seen little evidence of an economic turnaround as they struggle to pay for basic necessities.
Santa Barbara School District looks to November for parcel tax measures NEWS
BY CODY BRUMBAUGH DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER
The Santa Barbara Unified School District’s Board meeting Tuesday night focused on why Measures X and W failed and discussing its options of where to go from here. The Board agreed that both measures should be placed on the November election ballot and some changes in language along with details. This board must act quickly. June 28 is the last day to add any measures to the November ballot. “We need to take a strong stance and craft the right message,” Board President Susan Deacon said. There was solid support from the public at the meeting as well. “It’s critical for this Board to move forward with some sort of parcel tax on the

November ballot,” David Holmes said in a public statement to the Board. “We have invested enough money to buy every fourth grader in the district a violin but without the parcel tax money we wont have enough funds to instruct them.” Board member agreed that extremely low voter turnout was one of the reasons the Measures failed this time around, but there is sure to be no shortage of voters in a Presidential Election. Board members also had their own ideas of how to change the measures going forward. Deacon suggested taking out the restrictions on class sizes but was adamant about keeping career tech classes. California educational funding per student per year is $2,800 below the national average. Without the parcel

tax money provided by Measures X and W, the district will lose an additional $6 million in funding on top of $20 million in budget cuts. Board member Ed Heron dominated the debate playing devil's advocate and saying it wont be any easier this time around. “The language of the measure needs to be more specific,” he said. “We need to spell it out for people and sell them on it; tell them how much of the money is going to which program.” He also pointed out the need to bring the Republican Party, who opposed the measures, into the loop when craft-
ing the revised measures. “This funding is too important to fail,” she said. “It's important to preserve what [funding] we have, it really makes a difference what the price is.” The Board seems to be shaking off the tough losses of Measures X and Y and looking forward to November. “I think we are all still kind of processing all the emotions we felt after such a heart wrenching loss," Deacon said. “Needless to say I want this to pass and we should be willing to do whatever is necessary to get it passed.” Challenging Sudoku Puzzles, Book 7

Grammy winner Adele ascends back to top (Reuters) - British singer Adele regained her place at the top of the Billboard 200 album chart for the 24th time on Wednesday with her Grammy-winning album "21," holding off new entries from Alan Jackson, The Beach Boys and Neil Young. Adele's "21" sold 75,000 copies according to Nielsen SoundScan figures in its 68th week on the chart, buoyed by NBC's special "Adele Live in London," which aired on June 3. The album has yet drop out of the top 10 since its U.S. release in February 2011. The "Someone Like You" singer beat out debuts from three veterans of the music industry. Country crooner Alan Jackson debuted at No. 2 with his latest studio album "Thirty Miles West," selling 73,000 copies. It is Jackson's 15th studio album, excluding holiday and compilation sets, and his 12th
time in the top 10 of the Billboard album chart. The Beach Boys made their highest debut since 1974, as their 29th studio album "That's Why God Made The Radio" entered at No. 3, selling 61,000 copies in its first week of release and kicking off the band's 50th anniversary celebration. Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young's 35th studio album "Americana" landed at No. 4 after selling 44,000 copies, giving Young his second-highest debut following 1972's "Harvest," which debuted at No. 1. Newcomer rapper Big K.R.I.T entered the chart at No. 5 with his debut album "Live From The Underground," while New Orleans rapper Curren$y debuted his seventh studio album "The Stoned Immaculate" at No. 8. One Direction's "Up All Night"
fell to No. 6 from fourth place, and John Mayer's "Born And Raised" dropped from two straight weeks at No. 1 all the way down to No. 7. Country star Carrie Underwood dropped to No. 9 from the sixth spot with her hit "Blown Away," while folk singer Brandi Carlile rounded out the top 10 with her fifth studio album "Bear Creek," selling 27,000 copies. On Billboard's Digital Songs chart, Carly Rae Jepsen continued her reign at the top with flirty pop anthem "Call Me Maybe," while Maroon 5's "Payphone" featuring Wiz Khalifa held steady at No. 2, as did Gotye's "Somebody That I Used To Know" featuring Kimbra in the No. 3 slot. Katy Perry climbed to No. 4 with her ballad "Wide Awake," and Canadian pop star Justin Bieber stormed in at No. 5 with "All Around The World."
