Supes delay decision BY NICK C. TONKIN


The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday voted to delay a decision on whether to allow an Environmental Impact Report on the Park Hill Estates project to go forward. The project would add 15 homes, including one affordable unit, to a 14.87 acre property along the 4700 block of Via Los Santos above Tuckers Grove. But residents and activists expressed concerns that there aren’t enough fire evacuation routes to support more homes and the environmental studies done by the county hadn’t been thorough enough to judge the effects on local wildlife. In January, the Planning Commission agreed and ordered a more focused EIR to gather more information. The Oak Creek Company filed an appeal with the Board of Supervisors. Company representative Jeff Nelson told the board yesterday that the new developments would be safer than the vacant lot. “The project is built to be more fire safe than the grass that is there now,” Nelson said. He added that the project meets all the standards put forward by the fire department and the evacuation issues fall with the county, not with Park Hill. “Almost everything you heard is about this area-wide issue,” Nelson said. Danny Vickers, president of the San

little has changed in terms of access with one important exception. “Today there are 75 more homes or lots that have already been approved to build and we still have the same situation in terms of fire safety,” Vickers said. See HOUSING, page 3

Yes on Measure Y

EVELOPER Mark Lee is proposing to build 25 homes on undeveloped land in the Las Positas Valley. In addition to that, Lee also wants to restore an 1,800-foot-section of Arroyo Burro Creek to its natural state. Six acres of degraded, essentially unused city land would be cleaned up and restored for public use Lee would like to do this all on his own dime — at no taxpayer expense. But first he needs your help. Voters in June must decide whether to approve Measure Y, which will allow him to build a bridge over Arroyo Burro Creek to allow residents and the public to access the land. Because the area is city property, a passive city park, voters must approve any change in use for private gain. The Daily Sound urges voters to


approve Measure Y and allow Lee to move forward with the project. Lee proposed the project more than a decade ago. He has shown tremendous resiliency to keep the project alive, even in the face of repeated defeats. Environmental groups have consistently opposed the project because they believe that Lee’s restoration project is weak and not up to Santa Barbara’s standards. Lee’s project, they say, is more about stopping the degradation, rather than truly restoring the watershed. City officials and environmentalists must take a holistic approach to Arroyo Burro Creek, they say, and not allow a private developer with deep pockets to essentially buy approval of a project through the promise of creek restoration.

While we believe they make some valid points, the bottom line is this: The city doesn’t have the money to restore the creek; the developer does, and he is willing to do it. The city would also get additional housing stock, new trails, and the public would benefit from a restored watershed. “Measure Y is a great deal for city taxpayers,” says Dr. Dan Secord. “We get a creek and parkland restored, and an environmentally state-of-the-art bridge at no cost.” Santa Barbara has bigger problems to face — such as pension reform — and shouldn’t be getting in the way of a private developer’s attempt to build a project, and partner with the government for a better, shared common goal. Voters should support Measure Y and allow the Veronica Meadows project to move forward.

Officials arrest man who sent sexually explicit photos to girl NEWS

A Ventura man who allegedly sent sexually explicit photos to a teenage girl in Carpinteria was arrested on Tuesday by the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office. Authorities arrested Joel Arana, 23, of Fillmore. He was booked in Santa Barbara County Jail on $20,000 bail on suspicion of sending harmful material to a minor with the intent to seduce. A Sheriff’s deputy made the arrest after he noticed Arana and the girl walking out of Marsh Park about 10:30 a.m. Wondering why the girl wasn’t in school, the deputy stopped them both and asked them questions. The girl apparently skipped school to be with the 23-year-old who she met on the internet. The man, authorities said, sent the girl sexually explicit photos on their cell phones. The girl told authorities that she thought the man was younger than 23. — Daily Sound staff writer


Vickers did say that the neighborhood isn’t proposing to cancel the project, only that more studies needs to take place. “We know at some point the project’s going to be developed, we’re not against that,” Vickers said. But in twist of irony, the board, with second district supervisor Janet Wolf recused because of the proximity of her home to the project, felt it didn’t have enough information to decide whether the Planning Commission had enough information. The questions the supervisors had trouble grappling with were whether an EIR would tell them anything they didn’t already know and if it this was even Nelson’s problem in the first place. Fifth district supervisor Steve Lavagnino said fire safety had to be a number one priority. But he didn’t it would make sense to have Nelson pay for a study that would just call for more evacuation routes. “I think we’re going to end up with an EIR that comes back and tells us we have an areawide access problem and it’s not Mr. Nelson’s responsibility,” Lavagnino said. “That was


there before this project.” First district supervisor Salud Carbajal, while noting his district had seen four fires in three years, felt going the extra distance to ensure safety is worth it. “I’m willing to do more environmental review to really flesh out those issues,” Carbajal said. “I think to do otherwise for me, doesn’t feel prudent.” But Carbajal agreed with Lavagnino’s point that it didn’t necessarily fall to Nelson nor should the county undertake an EIR that would just tell them what they’d already heard. Third district supervisor Doreen Farr said there just wasn’t enough information for her to act one way or another. She recalled similar issues coming up for projects in the area when she’d been on the planning commission and wanted to know what had been done in those cases. County CEO Chandra Wallar said staff could compile information on past projects in the area, but would need two to three weeks to do so. That met with approval from Farr and the other supervisors who voted 4—0 to continue the hearing at a later date. “I’m after solutions here and I would just like better information,” Farr said.

Gunman kills 4 near Phoenix NEWS IN BRIEF

A gunman shot and killed four people including a toddler girl in a Phoenix suburb on Wednesday afternoon before apparently committing suicide, police said. Gilbert Police Sergeant Bill Balafas said the gunman opened fire at or near a house in a neighborhood of single-family homes in the town of Gilbert. Police recovered two handguns and a shotgun from the scene. The youngest victim, a girl of between one and two years old, was still alive at the scene, but later died in a hospital, Balafas said. The other dead were two men and two women. Police believe the shooter was among the dead. Local resident Scott Kirkwood, 43, said neighbors were shocked by the shooting at the home, which he believed was occupied by a family.

Racist Zimmerman website found

A MySpace page created in 2005 by George Zimmerman has surfaced in which the man charged with killing black teenager Trayvon Martin appears to disparage Mexicans and makes apparent references to two brushes with law enforcement that year. On the social media page, Zimmerman, who is white and Hispanic, writes about missing his friends in Manassas, Virginia, and starting his own insurance agency in Florida. Zimmerman also seems to make reference to a pair of restraining orders that he and an ex-fiancée filed against each other in 2005. In another section, he writes, in street slang, that among the things he does not miss about his former Virginia hometown is having "knifes pulled on you by every mexican you run into!"

Divers to clean sea floor

A team of divers will dive deep in the Santa Barbara harbor waters on Saturday to search the bottom of the sea floor. Crews typically pick up seafood traps, bicycles, steering wheels, barbecues and other items. The seafloor often gets discarded with junk, which can impact boating safety, navigability and the environment. The Santa Barbara Harbor’s Sixth Annual Operation Clean Sweep takes place in Marina 1 “E” through “H” finger docks, from 8 a.m. to noon, supported by dozens of dock workers who will cart off what the divers retrieve. Volunteers from Waterfront Department and the Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, Surfrider Foundation, Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, Channel Islands National Marine Sanctuary will take place in the cleanup. The public is welcomed to come down and watch the activities.

THINK LIKE A MAN 2 Stars – Troubling Steve Harvey wrote his best-selling book “Act Like a Woman, Think Like A Man” in 2009 to share his experiences and wisdom on relationships. In bringing his advice to the big screen, Harvey partnered with screenwriters Keith Merryman and David A. Newman who wrote the dialogue for the explicit and sometimes vulgar “Friends with Benefits.” As producer of the film, Harvey secured the directing skills of Tim Story due to his work on such films as “Taxi” and “Barbershop.” Combining the forces of these artists produces a work that is a fascinating combination of moral counsel, relationship manipulation, gender and racial stereotypes, and raunchy comedy in an expose on modern dating relationships. The storylines acted out by the ensemble cast are based on the various chapters of the book and explain how different men look for and need different things from the women in their lives. The “player” Zeke (Romany Malco) has avoided meaningful relationships by seeking only sex and needs to be taught to love the woman first. The “mama’s boy” is Michael (Terrence Jenkins) whose single mother has inappropriately bonded him to her and he must learn to choose to prioritize the woman who could become his wife over his mother. The man who has lived nine years with his woman but will not commit to marriage is Jeremy (Jerry Fararra) who must take responsibility to commit to both a career and marriage. The underachiever who has finished culinary school but still works as a waiter and parking attendant is Dominic (Michael Ealy) who needs to take action


to achieve his dreams. And the mouthy divorcee who needs to realize that he still loves his wife and their tumultuous relationship is Cedric (Kevin Hart). All of these men share the basketball court, rowdy friendship and open discussion of the relationships they have with the women in their lives. Balancing these men are a beautiful group of women whose unique journeys cause them to become catalytic in the lives of the men as they begin to apply the lessons learned in Harvey’s book. Coming to understand that they have been duped by the rules of dating in the modern world, they begin to understand and respect themselves as they begin to expect more from their men. These women include Mya (Meagan Good), Candace (Regina Hall), Lauren (Taraji P. Henson), Kristen (Gabrielle Union), and Sonja (La La Anthony). Although the comedy is sometimes formulaic, and the tensions and resolutions are often predictable, the film has a clear morality that reflects Harvey’s views. However, the lack of any positive spiritual values in the lives of these men

June 10, 2012

and women helps explain why they are faltering in finding their way in the dating world as well as in life. “Think Like a Man” is a funny adult comedy about the modern dating scene. Though it deserves at least its PG-13 rating, many viewers will find some truth in the lessons taught in spite of the sexually explicit dialogue. Discussion for those who have seen this film: 1. In the modern dating scene, sexual union seems to be expected before marriage. What do you think this does not only to the ability of a person to be faithful after marriage but also to the expectations of male and female relationships? 2. The predictable discovery that the women are reading Harvey’s book but are offended when the men also read the book to counter their actions reveals how the whole experience of dating is seen as a “game” and a “battlefield.” It is only when each person becomes sincere and stops playing the games and strategizing the schemes is true love found. Do you believe this lesson is adequate to counteract the “new morality” of modern dating? 3. The advice to introduce your date to your children from a previous marriage early in the relationship so they can get to know and care for each other seems both reasonable and risky. What do you think is the best plan and why? ________________

Former NFL linebacker dies in apparent suicide


The mother of former San Diego Chargers linebacker Junior Seau, Luisa, reaches after a coroners van as it departs with the body of her son who was found dead at his home in Oceanside

OCEANSIDE (Reuters) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Former San Diego Chargers linebacker Junior Seau, considered one of the best defensive football players of his generation, was found dead at his home in Southern California on Wednesday from a gunshot wound to the chest in an apparent suicide, police said. He was 43. A young woman who identified herself as Seau's girlfriend alerted police to the death, saying she had found him wounded and unconscious in his beachfront home just north of San Diego, Oceanside police chief Frank McCoy told reporters. The death was at least the third apparent suicide by a former National Football League (NFL) player since February 2011, when former Chicago Bears defensive back Dave Duerson killed himself in a case that led to increased scrutiny of the effects of head injuries in football. Seau, a 12-time Pro Bowl selection whose last NFL season was in 2009, played most of his 20-season career with the Chargers before moving to the Miami Dolphins and the New England Patriots. He was named to the Pro Football Hall of Fame's All-Decade Team of the 1990s. Seau's mother, Luisa, was weeping as she spoke before television cameras outside her son's house, where family and friends gathered as police continued to work at the scene. "I pray to God please take me, leave my son," she said. "But it's too late." Seau was inducted last year into the San Diego Chargers Hall of Fame, and was expected to be considered for the NFL Hall of Fame. He will become eligible for induction in 2015. His death was being investigated as a suicide, police said. Seau, however, did not have a documented history of concussions. He suffered a broken arm in 2006 that caused him to miss games, and before that sat out some contests with injuries to his chest muscle and Achilles tendon.

Seau was found in the bedroom at his home, and investigators recovered no suicide note, Oceanside police spokesman Lieutenant Leonard Mata said. The weapon Seau apparently used on himself was a revolver, Mata said. In 2010, hours after his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence, Seau drove his car off a cliff in what he said at the time was an accident. Seau said he fell asleep at the wheel, and prosecutors later declined to file charges in the domestic violence complaint. His death came less than a month after former Atlanta Falcons safety Ray Easterling shot himself to death at age 62. Easterling had been diagnosed with dementia. PLAYER SAFETY

Hundreds of former NFL players and their families have joined in legal action against the NFL, claiming negligence for not doing enough to lessen the risks from head injuries. Duerson's family filed a wrongful death suit against the NFL, arguing that a series of concussions he suffered during his NFL playing career damaged his brain. Duerson, who also shot himself in the chest, had told friends he wanted his brain examined after his death. The league, in the face of criticism, has focused in recent seasons on health and safety issues. It has cracked down on hits to the head, and stiffened rules that prohibit players using their helmets as a weapon by making contact head-first, which is subject to fines and suspension for repeat offenders. At Seau's home, across the street from the Pacific Ocean, his mother sat on driveway next to a coroner's van and sang a song or hymn. Over 30 family members and friends joined in before the van carrying Seau's body left the property. Luisa Seau followed the van down the driveway with her arms outstretched, crying and wailing, and was held back by several people. On the dashboard of the coroner's vehicle was a Chargers placard.

‘All true environmentalists are going to support this’ BY NICK C. TONKIN


Battle lines are being drawn up in political circles as the controversial Measure Y heads for election in June. An assortment of politicians, commissioners, and activists held a press conference outside of City Hall yesterday to voice support for the initiative which would give the go ahead for a new housing project and bridge construction on city land. “It is a melding of development along with a tremendous amount of environmental concerns,” former mayor Marty Blum said. The project by developer Mark Lee puts in 25 homes in a plot of land near Los Positas Road across from Elings Park. It builds a bridge across Arroyo Burro Creek, installs six acres of park land, puts in bike lanes and pedestrian trail, restores a 1,800-foot section of the creek to its natural state, and leaves 44 acres of open space. “All true environmentalists are going

to support this,” Lee said. Lee had been attempting to get approval from the city council for several years. However environmental groups had been fighting the project, arguing that the project would do much more harm than good. While council approved the project, the courts ruled that the city couldn’t give up public land without voter consent. In January, the city council voted to put the measure on the June ballot. Current Santa Barbara City Council members Grant House and Dale Francisco both spoke out in favor of the proposal. House said the project would be an incredible benefit to the city and provides creek preservation that the city can’t do on its own, even despite measure B. “This is an environmental opportunity that we cannot miss,” House said. Francisco agreed, saying the number of advantages this would provide to the See MEASURE Y, next page

Munch’s ‘The Scream’ sells for record $120 million One State Street - Santa Barbara www

Across from Stearns Wharf

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Edvard Munch's painting "The Scream," one of the world's most recognizable works of art, sold for $120 million at Sotheby's on Wednesday, setting a new record as the most expensive piece of art ever sold at auction. The sale at Sotheby's Impressionist and Modern Art auction featured other works by Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali and Joan Miro,


but Munch's vibrant piece was the centerpiece of the auction in a salesroom packed with collectors, bidders and the media. The vibrant pastel from 1895 was conservatively estimated to sell for about $80 million at Sotheby's, but two determined bidders drove the final price to $107 million, or $119,922,500 including commission, during a 15-minute bidding war.

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE city is unprecedented in any other housing project. “It’s about as environmentally sound a development project as you can get,” Francisco said. “This is truly a Santa Barbarastyle residential development.” Other political hitters chimed in with their support of the project. Dr. Dan Secord, former California Coastal Commissioner and Santa Barbara City Council member said it’s an excellent public-private partnership that can address a growing the degradation of the creek. “It’s a landowner that will spend hard money to improve a creek which is in dire need of work,” Secord said. Planning Commissioner Addison Thompson said this project isn’t a handout to the developer. He said the city gives space for 25 homes and in return gets parkland, creek restoration, and open space it wouldn’t be able to get any other way. “From the city’s perspective, it’s win-win,” Thompson said.

One of four versions by the Scandinavian painter, which was being sold by Norwegian businessman Petter Olsen, "The Scream" easily eclipsed the old auction record held by Picasso's "Nude, Green Leaves and Bust," which went for $106.5 million at Christie's two years ago. The sales room at Sotheby's erupted in applause and cheering when the hammer came down. The buyer, who won the auction via telephone bidding,

Others approved of the new bicycle and pedestrian trails. Jeff Gorell, a resident of Bell Air Knolls, a neighborhood located just off of Los Positas Road, said the project would make the journey to Arroyo Burro Beach safer for his family. “I have children and I cringe every time they go to Hendry’s Beach,” Gorrell said. Architect and alternative transportation advocate Alex Pujo said the project would provide better bike paths and walking routes. “I’ve spent the last 20 years of my life campaigning for this kind of pedestrian and bicycle access,” Pujo said. But some say the project does none of these things. Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider said that the claims that project doesn’t cost the city anything are misleading. Though Lee may foot the construction cost of the bridge, the ongoing costs surrounding its installation fall to the taxpayer. “‘Yes on Y’ is making it sound less impactful than it really is,” Schneider said. Schneider added that claims that Measure B funds are inadequate are false. She said that money from that measure is used


was not identified by Sotheby's. In recent decades "The Scream," a picture of a person with hands pressed to head against a backdrop of swirling vibrant colors, has become a ubiquitous image, appropriated for everything from coffee mugs to editorial cartoons. For many mainstream art lovers, it is perhaps second in familiarity only to the "Mona Lisa" and is certainly among the bestknown works of art still in private hands.

to leverage state and federal grants to restore creeks far beyond what the city alone is capable of. “We can do a project right without putting in 25 luxury homes,” Schneider said. Environmental activist and former Creeks Commissioner David Pritchett also blasted the project, saying that the project has very little in the way of environmentalism. He said the term “restoration” is a misnomer and city staff on the Creeks Commission has never once approved the project. He said all the project does is prevent the creek from eroding parts of the road and the housing project itself. It doesn’t do anything to help the long term conservation of the creek and puts limits on what future restoration efforts can be undertaken. “They like to call it ‘restoration’ because it presents a positive image to the public,” Pritchett said. Pritchett said the development isn’t right for a city that often goes on about the need for more affordable housing, environmental conservation, and better transportation. “This Veronica Meadows project achieves none of those things so why is the city perpetuating that?” Pritchett said.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Go to the heart of the matter. Ask questions and find out what you have to do to keep the peace. Ignoring what's going on in your personal or financial affairs will make matters worse. Face the music and clear the air. 3 stars
