The Santa Barbara City Council approved a draft ordinance for a ban on plastic bags yesterday, taking the city a step closer toward freeing itself of plastic bags. The council voted 6-1 to send a draft to the Beach Erosion Authority for Clean Ocean and Nourishment(BEACON) organization as a model ordinance for other cities to consider. The ordinance committee drafted a ban similar to one passed by Los Angeles County which bans plastic bags and imposes a 10-cent fee on paper bags. Exceptions are made for produce, takeout restaurants, and certain low-income individuals would be exempt from the fee. Once implemented, stores with 10,000 See PLASTIC, page 6

City Council backs tobacco tax BY NICK C. TONKIN
DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER
The Santa Barbara City Council endorsed Proposition 29, a $1 tobacco tax increase, yesterday. Jayne Brechwald, co-chair of the AntiTobacco coalition, told the council the proposition would raise $600 million a year for cancer research, law enforcement, and smoking prevention and education. She said it would be critical in reducing the amount of young children that take up smoking. “Over the last decade big tobacco spent 10 times more on marketing their products in California than the state spent on tobacco education and prevention,” Brechwald said. Brechwald also assured council members that allegations that the funds would be spent out of state were false. The council voted 4-3, split between the conservative and liberal blocs. Council members Dale Francisco, along with Randy Rowse and Frank Hotchkiss, voted against taking a stand. Rowse and Francisco both said the proposition sounded good, but
believed it isn’t the city’s place to take a stand on this particular issue given that it has no direct impacts on Santa Barbara itself. “I worry about the city council taking positions on ballot initiatives that are not directly related to city operations,” Francisco said. Council member Cathy Murillo, after confirming that there’d been precedent for the council taking stands on propositions, disagreed. She argued that the council should raise awareness of political issues and if the majority of the council felt Prop 29 had merit, then the council should endorse it. “We can’t pretend that we are not political animals,” Murillo said. Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider framed it as a budget issue for the city, saying that smoking took up already strained public health resources that could be better spent. “When the county has to spend more money on public health issues that can be prevented, that’s less money that can go towards other things that relate to city and county health issues,” Schneider said.

NEWS IN BRIEF
Facebook stock plunder probed
Two top U.S. financial regulators said the issues around the initial public offering of Facebook should be reviewed, putting fresh pressure on the company, its embattled lead underwriter and the Nasdaq. After Friday's nearly flat close and Monday's 11 percent plunge, Facebook shares closed 8.9 percent lower at $31 on volume of 101 million shares. At that price the company has shed more than $19 billion in market capitalization from its $38-pershare offering price last week. Investors were still shaking their heads over the botched opening trading of Facebook when Reuters reported late Monday that the consumer Internet analyst at lead underwriter Morgan Stanley cut his revenue forecasts for Facebook in the days before the offering, information that may not have reached many investors before the stock was listed.
San Francisco best for parks
San Francisco has the best city park system in the United States, while its neighbor less than 200 miles away, Fresno, has the city parks most needing improvement, according to a new ranking of 40 local park systems released by the Trust for Public Land. Using "the most comprehensive park rating system ever developed," the trust found that San Francisco has the highest score in terms of park access, size and services and investment. Nearby Sacramento ranked second, while east coast metropolises Boston and New York tied for third, followed by Washington, D.C. Altogether, cities on the coasts dominated the top 10. Parks in the west coast communities of Portland, Seattle and San Diego made the cut. And those in the east coast's Virginia Beach and Philadelphia also ranked highly. The rating system looked at the percentage of residents living within a 10-minute walk of a park, the proportion of local land dedicated to parks, and the number of playgrounds and spending per capita on systems.
Nevada wildfire destroys homes
A fast-moving wildfire burned down seven homes in Nevada on Tuesday as winds fanned the flames, and firefighters battling a series of dangerous blazes in the U.S. Southwest in dry weather and strong winds made slow progress. Blazes in rugged, mountainous areas of Arizona, New Mexico and Colorado have already forced the evacuation of several small towns and torched more than 70 square miles (112 square km) of forest, brush and grass over the past 10 days. The Arizona blazes were the first major wildfires in the Grand Canyon state this year after a record 2011 fire season in which nearly 2,000 blazes consumed over 1,500 square miles, according to the National Interagency Fire Center.
Political powerhouse to try hand at running own business
DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT Steve Cushman, the man who popularized the slogan “business is great in Santa Barbara and Santa Barbara is great for business,” and longtime president of the Santa Barbara Region Chamber of Commerce, announced on Tuesday that he will retire at the end of June. Cushman plans to start a business development and fundraising company and pursue his interests, including art, poetry and travel. Cushman has served as the face of the business community for the last three decades. His jolly personality, advocacy for small businesses and passion for Santa Barbara helped keep him at the center of Santa Barbara social and business circles. He was heavily involved in local politics, frequently speaking out at City Council meetings on behalf of business interests. He unsuccessfully ran for mayor of Santa Barbara in 2009. In his 29 years as chamber president, Cushman served on more than 100 nonprofit boards and commissions. He has raised in excess of $60 million for local projects and has produced more than 1,000 events, according to a news release. Cushman said in a news release that his most memorable Chamber experi-

His sculpture can be seen at the Sullivan Goss Gallery and in local businesses throughout town. “We thank Steve for his many years of commitment and service to the Santa Barbara business community and wish him happiness on this next chapter in his adventure,” said Chamber Chairman Janet Garufis. “ We will miss his creativity, leadership, and dedication.”
Home sales on the rise
Increase in pace bodes well for U.S. economy
WASHINGTON (Reuters) â€” The pace of sales for existing homes in April rose to its fastest in nearly two years and a falloff in foreclosures helped cause an unexpected jump in prices, hopeful signs for the country's economic recovery. Home resales increased 3.4 percent to an annual rate of 4.62 million units last month, the National Association of Realtors said on Tuesday. Housing has been one of the economy's weakest links as it recovers from the 2007-09 recession, but many economists think the sector will actually add to economic growth in 2012 for the first time since 2005. The report on April resales supports that view and helps to dampen fears the recovery was stagnating after a report earlier this month showed tepid job growth in April. "We're still a ways from looking at an encouraging picture of the U.S. economy, though when it comes to housing, every little bit helps," said Camilla Sutton, a currency strategist at Scotia Capital in Toronto. The annual sales pace was the fastest since May 2010. That was in line with expectations and pushed U.S. stock prices higher. U.S. Treasuries prices fell as investors awaited news on how Europe will tackle its debt crisis, which continues to loom over the U.S. economy.
Nationwide, the median price for a home resale jumped to $177,400 in April, up 10.1 percent from a year earlier. That was the largest year-over-year gain since January 2006, and the NAR attributed the gains in part to a drop in homes sold following foreclosures. Socalled distressed sales accounted for 28 percent of resales, down from 29 percent
in March. Still, Wall Street analysts were cautious about taking the increase as a sign home values were at the cusp of a big comeback. NAR's calculations for prices may have been skewed by larger homes coming onto the market, analysts and the NAR said. NAR economist Lawrence Yun said some seasonal factors might have played a role in the price increase because families tend to buy in the spring, which means bigger homes comprise a larger share of total sales. "It does echo the message sent by most other related measures that have shown house prices stabilizing or firming," said Daniel Silver, an economist at JPMorgan. Home prices, as measured by the S&P/Case Shiller composite index, have fallen by about a third since mid-2006.
Yun said prices may rise 1 percent or 2 percent this year. Last month, the number of unsold homes in the market appeared to contract a little. The NAR estimated the number of existing single family homes for sale would supply the market for 6.3 months, down from 6.5 months in March. Total inventories rose 9.5 percent to 2.54 million, although that reading is not adjusted for seasonal shifts and April tends to be one of biggest months of the year for new homes going on the market, the NAR said. The number of unsold homes on the market has fallen sharply over the last year and is currently at similar levels to those in 2004. The NAR's reading for inventories, however, doesn't include the country's so-called "shadow inventory" homes that will eventually hit the market following a foreclosure.
DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT Strong sundowner wins are expected to strike Santa Barbara today through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service. The combination of the gusty winds and low humidity have forced county fire officials to issue a red flag warning. A red flag warning means that weather con-
ditions could lead to fire and a quick spread. The Santa Barbara County Fire Department along with other area fire agencies have increased staffing and response levels to meet the threat throughout the duration of the event. County fire officials have been in contact with county officials and operational
area fire departments to determine countywide preparedness and to ensure a coordinated response, according to a news release. Sundowner winds are expected to gust at times up to 50-60 mph in some down canyon areas. Winds are expected to be the highest in the mountains above Montecito and Highway 154.

square feet or more would have six months to clear out their plastic bag inventory. Smaller stores would be given a year. The city used the Los Angeles ban as it survived a court challenge, a judge ruling that the 10-cent fee, which goes to the businesses for education purposes did not constitute a tax. Some bans have failed in court due to a lack of exemptions for restaurants, failure to pursue an Environmental Impact Report, or implementing a tax without taking it to the voters. The neighboring City of Carpinteria is facing a lawsuit from a ban it enacted earlier in the year. To save costs on an Environmental Impact Report, the city is sending the draft to BEACON organization to coordinate with other jurisdictions. Brian Brennan, director of BEACON, said the organization would start its hearings in September and hopefully get the cities together in the summer. Brennan estimated that an EIR would cost between $55,000-$75,000 if the city paid for it on its own. By going through BEACON, Santa Barbara could potentially split the cost amongst 10 different cities. Brennan added that the organization is also looking into getting third party funding as well. The ban has been an ongoing issue within the city with interest waxing and waning. Various environmental groups had been pushing the “Where’s Your
FROM PAGE 2
Bag?” campaign as part of an educational outreach effort. Momentum for an actual ordinance started in 2010 but dropped after word that the state may consider such a ban. When that bill died in the legislature, environmental groups began another push for a ban, saying that education alone hadn’t been enough. But that failed to pass a conservative leaning city council. But after last November’s election shifted the council makeup, it voted to pursue an ordinance. While well-received by, some groups encouraged further modifications, such as eliminating requirements on what the 10-cent fees can be spent on and restrictions on reusable bag giveaways to prevent larger chains from pushing out smaller shops by giving away more bags. City Attorney Steve Wiley advised against further modifications. Wiley said that drifting too far from language that’s already been upheld in court could invite another lawsuit. “When a court decision has validated a draft ordinance we try to stick very closely to that draft,” Wiley said. Mayor Helene Schneider acknowledged the work of staff and the ordinance committee for making a draft that could work on an entire regional scale and at minimal cost to the city. “The cost savings just make so much sense,” Schneider said. Council member Grant House said the ordinance is a big step forward for protecting the environment. He felt that it allowed whole communities along to
coast the ability to help clean up the planet. “This is not just solving one problem, this is a bigger opportunity,” House said. Council member Dale Francisco had opposed a ban in the past and still felt the council had other priorities, but believed this is the best way for the city to proceed. He had said a ban should be undertaken on a state level, but given the unlikelihood of the legislature taking action, making this a regional effort would make things easier on the city. “I’m not 100 percent on board with the importance of passing this particular ordinance,” Francisco said. “But I am very much in agreement that it’s worthwhile working with other jurisdictions.” Council member Randy Rowse felt outreach would have been the better option, but recognized the ban would go through and like Francisco, thought this would be the best way to go about it. “I am a bigger fan of moving people through education rather than legislation,” Rowse said. Council member Frank Hotchkiss cast the lone dissenting vote. Hotchkiss said he wished he could say the ban would save the world, but felt it would just conserve a few plastic bags. He recognized it would probably move forward but felt opponents of the ban should feel that the council wasn’t oblivious of their concerns. “I’ll probably be voting against this just philosophically so that people out there who I know are against this know somebody at least is listening on the city council,” Hotchkiss said.

â€œThe Lost Yearsâ€? by Mary Higgins Clark, c.2012, Simon & Schuster $26.99 / $29.99 Canada, 292 pages
BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER THE BOOKWORM SEZ
Finders keepers, losers weepers? What do you do when you find something that belongs to someone else? Do you pocket the object, thanking the universe for an unexpected gift? Or do you go to the ends of the Earth to give it back to whomever it might belong? For most, the answer lies somewhere in the middle but Jonathan Lyons knew that an incalculably rare item absolutely needed to be returned after disappearing some 500 years ago. But in the new novel â€œThe Lost Yearsâ€? by Mary Higgins Clark, he canâ€™t do the deed if heâ€™s dead. â€œSo much noiseâ€Ś so much blood.â€? Those six words were the most intelligible things that Kathleen Lyons said. She was the only witness to the murder of her husband, Jonathan â€“ but maybe she wasnâ€™t just a witness. Suffering from Alzheimerâ€™s, frightened, and covered with blood, Kathleen was discovered by her daughter, cowering in a closet and clutching a gun. Twenty-eight-year-old Mariah knew that her mother wasnâ€™t a killer. Still, it was true that Kathleen went into a rage when, in moments of lucidity, she remembered that she had evidence of her husbandâ€™s infidelity. It was that infidelity that caused a rift between Mariah and her father, and it hurt Mariah to know that mending their relationship would never again be possible. It also hurt that her father hadnâ€™t shared his joy at what was surely the pinnacle of his career: Jonathan Lyons had discovered a priceless Biblical document, a letter from Jesus to Joseph of Arimathea. And that document was missing. As Kathleen Lyons was led away in handcuffs, crying and confused, Jonathanâ€™s four best friends - all experts
in antiquities - denied having seen the letter. Mariah was sure that one of them had been privy to her fatherâ€™s discovery, or maybe Jonathan had confided in his
mistress, Lily. Mariah hated Lily, so that wasnâ€™t a pleasant thought. Rory Steiger needed to get out of See BOOK, page 12

Mountain lion wanders into Santa Monica, is killed
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) — A mountain lion ventured into the center of a crowded Southern California city on Tuesday, and was shot and killed when authorities had trouble corralling the animal in the courtyard of a building, police said. It was not immediately clear how the 3year-old mountain lion weighing about 75 pounds ended up in the middle of the beachside city of Santa Monica, which lies just west of Los Angeles. Police received a call from a janitor who spotted the predator at about sunrise, a block away from a pedestrian thoroughfare called the Third Street Promenade that during the day is filled with shoppers and street performers. The giant cat ended up in the courtyard of a building a few hundred feet from a bluff overlooking the beach, with Santa Monica police officers and California Department of Fish and Game wardens at the scene. "A variety of means were used to try to keep the animal back inside the courtyard area," Santa Monica police spokesman Lieutenant Robert Almada said. "We deployed less-lethal pepper ball, we deployed fire hoses, and the animal continued to charge in (an) attempt to flee out of the courtyard. Regrettably, the animal was euthanized in order to protect public safety." Santa Monica police Lieutenant Calisse

A mountain lion is seen as it is cornered in Santa Monica, California in this photograph released by the Santa Monica Police Department yesterday.
Lindsey said it was the first time she could remember such an incident in her 24 years in the department. The densely populated city is several miles south of the Santa Monica Mountains, an area that is home to many different kinds of wildlife including mountain lions. Madeline Bernstein, president of Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Los Angeles, said her organization was "dismayed" with the killing of the mountain lion. "Basically, they agitated and frightened a cornered cat before they killed her," she said.
history. The surprise is that it contains an appealing new crimesolver who, while meddlesome and a bit folksy, is somebody you can’t help but like. And speaking of like, I like the gentle edginess of this novel. There’s blood in here, but no guts or gratuitous violence. That’s refreshing for a genre in which so many writers like to up the ante on gore. If you’re someone who enjoys sharing novels with others, though, beware: lend this book and you may never get it back. That’s because, for mystery fans, “The Lost Years” is truly a keeper.
