Cam Sanchez touts hiring, more services

DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli

Santa Barbara Police Chief Cam Sanchez is excited about a positive 2012 in the Santa Barbara Police Department.

BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER

After seeing drastic cuts over the last few years, the Santa Barbara City Police Department reported more robust hiring and some expanded community services. During a budget presentation to the city council yesterday, Chief Cam Sanchez reported the number of officers employed is holding steady and the department had put in beat coordinators and restorative policing. Deputy Chief Frank Mannix said the city has been working hard to increase the number of sworn officers out on the street and the numbers were looking good. The number of officers in the police department comes in three types: Authorized, Operational, and Functional.

Authorized refers to the number of officers the department has the budget to pay for, Operational is the number of officers the city has hired, and Functional refers to the number of hired officers that are able to work at one time. Increasing the number of Authorized officers had been a priority of previous councils and the department is seeking 144. Currently, 141 are Authorized with 140 vacancies filled. With 9 officers out on training or injury, the functional number comes in at 131. Due to training and hiring standards, Mannix said there’s always a delay between hiring an officer and getting them out in the field. “It’s a little bit like putting water in a garden hose and waitSee POLICe, page XX


Susan sends her child away for the weekend — for the first time PARENTING

No texts, no calls, was Fia OK?

A couple of weeks ago, I was picking Fia up from a sleepover at her friend’s house. The mom quietly asked me if we were going to be in town the first weekend of May. “Yes,” I said. She said she’d call me about it. I went home with no real inkling as to where she was going with that question. It all seemed so cryptic and code for something, but what? I wasn’t sure. A couple days passed and I, somewhere along the way, got in my head she was going to ask us to watch her daughter for the weekend. (Which, by the way we would be more than happy to do.) No call came, but I got an email laying out her plan. The plan did involve a weekend, it did involve a night away from home and it involved being out of town. However, it wasn’t just the parents leaving town, they also were taking their daughter, their son and they were inviting Fia. While I was expecting to have two girls in my house for the weekend, I was not expecting to be childless. With the temptation of a quiet weekend, my first inclination was a big excited yes! Then the reality set it. My daughter would be gone for the weekend. Gone for the weekend, out of town. Gone for the weekend, out of town, hours away. Gone for the weekend, out of town, hours away, camping. Then the inner dialogue began. This would be a weekend on easy street. No child, do what I want, when I want, no kid’s birthday parties, no playing pretend. I could sleep in, read books, watch Bravo TV before 9 p.m. My mind was spinning with the options. On the other side of the dialog, is she too young to send her away for the weekend with another family?

SUSAN TORREY

What if something went wrong? Fia would be so far away…hours away. It’s not like I could run across town if she completely lost it in the middle of the night. Would she be OK sleeping in a tent? It also meant a weekend of full of new experiences for Fia. It meant a way for my daughter to do things she’s never done before and go places she’s never been to. And so the answer was yes. We packed her bag, bought her a warmer sleeping bag and sent her off on early Saturday morning. I told the family to text when they could and we waved as the car pulled away. I sighed a heavy sigh. The Husband I filled the day with chores around the house and doing projects which we had set aside for another day. I checked my phone often with hopes of news. We got a text mid-morning, they were still on the road and the trip out to the desert was taking longer than they had anticipated, but all was going well. A few hours passed with no word. It’s okay I thought. They must have gotten to the camp site and were out having fun. Then ding! Late afternoon, another message came saying they’d been in an area without cell service, but the girls were like mountain goats climbing the rocks and having a really fun time. We got pictures of

two very happy girls and it confirmed the right decision was made. But what happened next I wasn’t quite ready for, or rather what didn’t happen next I wasn’t quite ready for. Radio silence. No texts. No calls. No emails. Saturday turned into Sunday. Early morning turned into late morning. Late morning turned into early afternoon. All was quiet. At first, it wasn’t a big deal. They again must be out of cell service, right? Everything was fine, right? If something was wrong, they would find a way to contact me, right? And then, almost 24 hours of no news, news came. All was fine. Just out of range and this was the first chance they had to touch base. Whew. Worry for naught. They were on their way home, everyone was fine and everyone had a great time. In a mere few short hours easy street would be coming to an end. The trip was a success. Fia had a blast. She loved camping and sleeping in a tent. She loved making s’mores over the campfire and her favorite part was climbing the big rocks. I loved that she was confident enough to be away from us for the weekend. I loved that she explored part of the world she hadn’t been to before. I loved that she had new experiences she can add to her long list in her short life. I love that this is just another example of having a village to help raise my child. But, most of all I love having my little girl home safe with a big smile and stories to tell.

Baseball announcer dies NEWS IN BRIEF

Carl Beane, the longtime "Voice of Fenway Park," died on Wednesday after suffering a heart attack while driving and then crashing his car, the Boston Red Sox said. He was 59. Beane had manned the public address system at the 100-yearold baseball park since 2003. A veteran sports reporter in Boston, Beane won a competition after the 2002 season to secure the coveted spot. The team said Beane had a heart attack while driving in Sturbridge, about 60 miles southwest of Boston on Wednesday afternoon. The Worcester Telegram and Gazette showed an image of Beane's silver Suzuki SUV, which had crashed into a stone wall and tree. Beane was alone, and no other vehicles were involved in the accident, local authorities said.

Fashionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Vidal Sasson dies at 84

(Reuters) - Vidal Sassoon, hair stylist and fashion world pioneer who created a natural look in the 1960s and built a multimillion-dollar business on his name, died on Wednesday after a long battle with leukemia. He was 84. Sassoon died at his home in Los Angeles surrounded by loved ones and his wife of 20 years, Ronnie, his family said in a statement. "He will be greatly missed," they said. The British stylist's scissors spelled the end of the 1950s-era beehive and the bouffant - untouchable hairstyles that owed their existence to lacquer and hair pins - and brought him international fame and fortune. Sassoon was dubbed a pioneer for coming up with so-called wash and wear looks - liberating many women from weekly salon trips to have their hair done. But as much as he was a genius in the salon, Sassoon was a whiz in business. He began marketing his name, styles and cutting techniques in a worldwide line of beauty salons, hair-cutting schools and later, related lines of hair products.

Brad Pitt the new face of Chanel No. 5

Actor Brad Pitt is to be the new face of Chanel No.5 perfume, one of the most famous fragrances in the world, the French fashion house said on Wednesday. "Chanel has selected world renowned actor Brad Pitt to be the face of the upcoming advertising campaign for Chanel No.5," Chanel said in a brief statement on its Twitter account. Chanel gave no details but the deal is thought to mark the first time that the iconic perfume for women will be marketed by a man. Pitt, 48, the star of movies like "Moneyball" and "Ocean's Eleven," joins the likes of Nicole Kidman and Catherine Deneuve who have represented the fragrance.

ing for it to come out the other end,â&#x20AC;? Mannix said. When council member Frank Hotchkiss asked if there was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;magic numberâ&#x20AC;? for a ratio of police to population, Chief Cam Sanchez said thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been a few, but every community has its own issues and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no real way to tell except by feeling it out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a shot in the dark really,â&#x20AC;?

Sanchez said. But despite news looking a little better, the council made little note of current negotiations with the Police Officers Association. While the council looks to hire more officers, the cost to employ those officers in the future is less clear. The city is in talks to extend the POAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contract. Public safety is the largest portion of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget, with combined Fire and Police totaling almost $58 million of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $105 million General Fund. Of the Policeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $35.8 million budget almost

87 percent goes towards salaries and benefits. Mannix said he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t comment on any specific offers and demands. However, Mannix noted that even if negotiations fall through, the current contract extends through July 2013 and wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t affect next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s projections. Beyond then, how the city wants to proceed with any new costs associated with officer pay will be up to the council. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of a look and see process right now,â&#x20AC;? Mannix said after the session.

Roberts resigned from the News-Press in July of 2006, claiming that News-Press owner Wendy McCaw interfered with the news. Several

other editors and reporters also resigned and by end of the summer dozens of staff members had also quit the paper claiming ethical problems. The community held rallies in support of Roberts and the staff members McCaw filed a $25 million breach of contract action, claiming that Roberts was to blame for the mass exodus and drama surrounding the resignations.

Police are seeking the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s help in identifying two suspects in an attempted sexual assault two weeks ago. At 8:30 p.m. on April 26th the two suspects allegedly attacked a woman as she exited her RV near Cacique Street and Quarantina Street. The suspects managed to remove

some of her clothes but fled on foot when a vehicle drove by. The first suspect is described as a white or Hispanic male of unknown age between 6â&#x20AC;&#x2122;1â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;6â&#x20AC;&#x2122;3â&#x20AC;? with a medium build and wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, light colored canvas carpenter pants, and work boots.

(Reuters) - After years of "evolving" on the issue, President Barack Obama said on Wednesday he believes same-sex couples should be allowed to marry, a stance that is likely to please his political base and complicate efforts to attract some independent voters. "It is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married," Obama said in an interview with ABC's Robin Roberts. Obama's comments marked the first time a U.S. president had publicly expressed support for gay marriage, and his position was hailed by Democrats, gay rights groups and others as a benchmark for civil rights in the United States. "This is a major turning point in the history of American civil rights" said

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, an independent whose city is in one of six states that allow same-sex marriage. Neera Tanden from the Center for American Progress described the president's expression of support as "another large step toward realizing this country's promise of equality." Others, including Republican activists and conservative Christian leaders, criticized Obama's stance and called it a huge political risk on a divisive issue. Some said it could lead independent voters who oppose gay marriage to support Mitt Romney, Obama's likely Republican opponent in the November 6 election. Noting that 29 states have approved bans on same-sex marriage, they said Obama's announcement also could

help Romney consolidate support among evangelical Christians who, like Romney, oppose gay marriage. "Today's announcement ensures that marriage will again be a major issue in the presidential election," said Tony Perkins, a prominent evangelical leader and president of the Family Research Council, a conservative Christian group. "The president has provided a clear contrast between him and ... Mitt Romney." Added Ralph Reed of the Faith and Freedom Coalition: "This is an unanticipated gift to the Romney campaign. It is certain to fuel a record turnout of voters of faith to the polls this November." Romney, campaigning in Oklahoma City, said he believes "marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman."

‘Someone Like You’ singer Adele drops to No. 4

(Reuters) - "American Idol" winner and country music star Carrie Underwood topped the Billboard 200 chart on Wednesday with her fourth studio album "Blown Away," while the Beastie Boys returned after the death last week of Adam "MCA" Yauch. "Blown Away" sold 267,000 copies in its first week according to Nielsen SoundScan, coming only second to Madonna's "MDNA" earlier this year, which sold 358,000 copies in its initial week of release. This is Underwood's third album to debut at No. 1 on the chart.

The death of Beastie Boys' Yauch last week led to a rise in sales of the band's catalog of albums, as their 1986 record "Licensed To Ill" reentered the Billboard 200 at No. 18 with 19,000 copies sold. Six other Beastie Boys albums also re-entered the Billboard 200 chart, with collective sales of 55,000 in the two days following Yauch's death last Friday. Online music streaming site Spotify said it saw a 1700 percent increase in people listening to Beastie Boys songs between May 3 and 4. Grammy-winning blues singer Norah Jones' fifth stu-

dio album, "Little Broken Hearts," entered the Billboard 200 at No. 2 after selling 110,000 copies, while the new "Now 42" music compilation of current hits including those by Kelly Clarkson, Chris Brown and Gotye, entered the chart at No. 3 with sales of 95,000. Rapper B.o.B.'s second album, "Strange Clouds," debuted at No. 5 with sales of 76,000, leaving Adele's Grammy-winning "21" at No. 4, the only non-new entry in the top five this week. Two more new albums entered the top 10, with the soundtrack from hit TV musi-

cal "Smash" at No. 9 and gothic rocker Marilyn Manson's tenth studio album "Born Villain" debuted at No. 10. Last week's chart-topper, Jack White's "Blunderbuss," fell to No. 7 this week. Gotye continues to lead an unchanged top five on Billboard's Digital Songs chart with "Somebody That I Used To Know" featuring Kimbra. Maroon 5's "Payphone" featuring Wiz Khalifa, Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe," Fun.'s "We Are Young" featuring Janelle Monae, and Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend" fill the No. 2 to No. 5 positions respectively.

Kids who watch too much TV eat too much junk food (Reuters Health) - Kids and teens who watch a lot of television are less likely to get their fruits and veggies and more likely to snack on candy or drink soda every day, according to a new survey of close to 13,000 U.S. students. The link to poor eating habits remained even after researchers took into account how much exercise kids typically got as well as how often they snacked while in front of the tube. Though the findings weren't particularly surprising, this study alone can't prove that watching too much television, itself, causes kids to make worse diet choices. Researchers couldn't tell which of the extra TV or poor eating habits came first, since they only looked at kids' behavior at one snapshot in time, in what's called a crosssectional study. The association between TV and diet jibes with past

research showing that when kids have their TV time cut back, they tend to eat less and may lose weight, researchers said. "It certainly is consistent with the idea that TV is maybe adversely affecting dietary intake and food choices," said Leah Lipsky, who worked on the new study at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, along with colleague Ronald Iannotti. Previous studies have also suggested youth who spend more time in front of the tube are more likely to be overweight or obese. One explanation is that advertisements touting fast food and sweets during kids' programming may be driving youngsters who see a lot of those commercials toward unhealthy foods. "These studies suggest the food advertising has kind of

an unconscious effect and just makes you want to eat more," said Jennifer Harris, from the Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity at Yale University in New Haven. Kids in the new study -- a nationally-representative group of 12,642 private and public school students -watched an average of two and a half hours of television each day. The researchers found that for every extra hour of daily television-watching reported by kids in fifth through tenth grades, the students were five percent less likely to eat vegetables every day and eight percent less likely to get daily fruit. Each extra average hour of TV also meant kids were 18 percent more likely to say they ate candy each day, 24 percent more likely to drink soda at least daily and 14 percent more likely to go to fast food restaurants once a week or more.
