Housing sparks flap Construction crews are hard at work on Cottage HospitalĘźs St. Francis housing development.

Neighbors furious with Cottage Hospital over project BY JOSHUA MOLINA DAILY SOUND EDITOR

Cottage Health Systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction of 115 condos on Santa Barbaraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upper Eastside has sparked a new wave of neighborhood controversy. Cottage is building the Bella Riviera project at 601 East Micheltorena Street â&#x20AC;&#x201D; at the site of the former St. Francis Medical Center. The city has issued Cottage 52 warnings since demolition and construction began about 18 months ago. In the last six months, the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project environmental coordinator has issued 17 infractions, including 13 verbal warnings and four violations.

All of the warnings and violations were issued over truck operation errors, such as delivery trucks arriving early to the site and trucks not following the approved haul route. Despite the violations and warnings, the city has not fined Cottage a dime. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There needs to be a monetary fee attached to the violation,â&#x20AC;? said planning commissioner Charmaine Jacobs. On top of the construction violations, many neighbors are outraged over the recent installation of a 65-foot-tall utility pole on the 500 block of East Arrellaga Street, which blocks the city and ocean views of many existing residents.

Suspected drug dealer arrested near labor line BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

An officer arrested a suspected drug dealer near the labor line on Yanonali Street Saturday morning. Sergio Garcia, 21, allegedly got caught with 10 bindles of heroin and allegedly concealed an 11th. An officer patrolling East Yanonali Street stopped on the 400 block at 8:52 a.m. He noticed Garcia standing alone and did not seem to be trying to attract the attention of vehicles for work like the other individuals. The officer got suspicious and talked Garcia into allowing a search. The officer found a plastic bag in Garcia’s pocket that contained 10 bindles of heroin. After arresting Garcia and taking him to the police station, the officer found another bindle in the patrol car where Garcia had been sitting. He was booked into county jail for Possession of a Controlled Substance for Sale and Destruction/Concealing of Evidence.

COUPLE ARRESTED AFTER ALLEGED TRESPASSING

Police arrested two people on felony drug warrants after receiving a complaint about two strangers drinking in an apartment on Garden Street. Officers allegedly found Nicole Causing, 41, and Stephen Morgavo-Chasteen, 22, in the

parking lot of an apartment complex on the 600 block of Garden Street at 2:18 p.m. on Saturday. After questioning them, police found the two did not have any legal reason to be on the property. They found a syringe in a nearby bush. Background checks on both Causing and Morgavo-Chasteen found both of them had outstanding felony warrants. Both were booked into county jail on the warrants.

Ex coach: I’m not a pedophile

Jerry Sandusky, the former Penn State University assistant football coach charged with child sex abuse, said on Monday he is not a pedophile, but admitted he showered with young boys. In a full-court media press across two television networks, Sandusky and his attorney, Joe Amendola, said they have answers for all 40 charges that Pennsylvania prosecutors have leveled. "I am innocent of those charges," Sandusky told NBC's Bob Costas in a telephone interview with the television network on Monday. The former coach and founder of The Second Mile charity for disadvantaged youth acknowledged that after workouts he has showered with boys. "I have hugged them and I have touched their leg without intent of sexual contact," Sandusky told Costas.

Study identifies nightmare roads

The single most congested stretch of highway in the United States, according to a report released on Tuesday by the Texas Transportation Institute at Texas A&M University, is on the Harbor Freeway in Los Angeles, specifically the three-mile stretch of northbound California Highway 110 near Dodger Stadium. The report estimates more than 1.4 million person hours are wasted each year by people sitting in traffic at that one intersection, using 2.1 million gallons of gasoline. A person hour is an hour spent by one person; if six people are in a car stuck for an hour in a traffic jam, that's six person hours lost. The second-worst stretch of highway is just a few miles to the south, where the Harbor Freeway intersects with Interstate 10 just south of downtown Los Angeles near the Staples Center. In that six-and-a-half-mile corridor, 1.1 million person hours are wasted and 3.6 million gallons of fuel are lost each year.

When the law itself is unjust the enforcement of it is oppressive, which makes the police objects of dread, mistrust, and loathing. The police are not supposed to question the law, just enforce it, but good cops know when a law is unjust. They understand that such laws undermine respect for law in general and for the entire justice system. Having to enforce such laws day after day must haunt the psyche of good cops.

LETTERS@THEDAILYSOUND.COM

DEAR EDITOR: I attended the dedication ceremony for â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Moving Wallâ&#x20AC;? (Vietnam Veterans Memorial Replica) on October 1, 2011 in Santa Barbara. The dedication reminded me of a letter to the Editors of the Atlanta Journal Constitution (Lessons America Learned in Vietnam helped save lives in Persian Gulf War) I wrote 20 years ago when the troops returned from the Persian Gulf War. The troops were hailed as heroes. We were very proud of the success of those troops. We should realize that a country not only achieves greatness because of its successes, but also because of lessons learned. The successes we had in Desert Storm and succeeding wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are in part due to lessons learned in the past. Someone had to pay a price for those lessons learned. I would like to thank another group

of heroes for paying that price. Vietnam vets can hold their heads high realizing that the price they paid was not in vein. The political and military decisions that were made in Desert Storm and succeeding wars were as a result of some of the lessons learned in Vietnam. It can be concluded that the loss of American lives in Desert Storm and succeeding wars were kept to a minimum because of the price paid by Vietnam Vets. Although we all hate war, we have learned that it is not necessary to hate the warrior. The Vietnam Vet did not come to parades or thanks from a grateful nation. However, this country poured out its heart in a richly deserved tribute to the heroes of Desert Storm. Thus the Vietnam Vet paid for another lesson learned. This country should welcome home the veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts with the same tribute of thanks.

The investment made by the men and women who served in Vietnam paid off in big dividends and saved hundreds and probably thousands of American lives in Desert Storm and succeeding conflicts. Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another. Our veterans should always be hailed as Heroes. Mr. Kelly Reid Goleta

County may partner with BEACON on bag ban NEWS

BY ELISE CLEMENTS

DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER

On the heels of the Santa Barbara City Council's decision not to ban plastic bags this summer, a key multijurisdictional agency is seeking an extensive report detailing the environmental impact of plastic bags. The charge is being headed by BEACON, the Beach Erosion Authority for Clean Oceans and Nourishment, an agency comprised of the Counties of Santa Barbara and Ventura and coastal cities within the region. The agency adopted a resolution last month to promote the restriction of plastic bag use within its jurisdictions and seek funding for the $60,000 to $80,000 report. Today the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors will vote whether to contribute the $15,000 the agency has asked. The board’s vote is important because it will be the first reaction from its members the agency receives. But Salud Carbajal, first district supervisor, and agency chair, said that it is possible for the agency to move forward with a regional ordinance regardless. “We could have done this already,” Carbajal said, “but we wanted to get the feel for what the agencies think and receive their support. It’s high time we considered it from a regional stand point” He said the agency, if it feels there is enough support to move forward with an ordinance and choose to do so, may seek funding elsewhere if members cannot contribute what it asks. If they go through with a report, it is possible they will draft a regional ordinance, he said.

police unions to have extracted lavish compensation packages from taxpayers, packages that include early retirement with lifetime full pay and benefits; the public is further exploited by police zealously enforcing those laws that generate the most revenue for the force. Confiscatory rights allowed in the insane War on Drugs are liberally employed by police to augment department treasuries.

Oceanographer Jean-Michel Cousteau puts on an anti-plastic bag demonstration in Santa Barbara in this December 2008 Daily Sound file photo.

A regional ban makes sense, he said, saying it would be similar to having a different seat-belt policy in Goleta from that in Santa Barbara. “It would create a mosaic of policy that provides for inconsistency,” he said. “The best type of policy overlaps multiple jurisdictions.” Generously manned DUI check points not only produce overtime pay for the cops, they are also opportunities to impound cars at high fees from which the force takes a generous cut. Under these conditions, it is hard to expect that all police will practice a code of chivalry, but if we want to arrest the descent into a police state, we must hold the police accountable for their behavior. That is not easy to do when cops are shouting at you to put the camera away or face arrest.

Regardless of what BEACON would choose if a report is made, it would mean a much cheaper and sound option for municipalities in the area teetering on a ban or other restrictive legislation. When Santa Barbara voted no in July, several council members who voted against it expressed See BAGS, page 14 Pressure must be put on our elected officials to control the police. It really starts at the top. Who hires, trains, and supervises the force? Those are the folks who must inculcate and enforce a code of chivalry. The key position is the police chief. You got to have a good cop there.

County considers poverty study NEWS

And the picture the county does have is bleak. About 75,000 people, or 18 percent of the population, lived below the federal poverty level in Santa Barbara County in 2010. The federal poverty level is $22,050 per year for a family of four. In 2007 only 11 percent of the population lived below the level. But the federal poverty rate has been criticized in that it may not reflect local costs of living. According to a study by the Insight Center for Community Economic development, that difference is substantial. The study reports the cost of living for a family of four with a twoparents, one school-age child and one preschooler in Santa Barbara County is almost triple the federal poverty level at $66,779. By comparison, the median income for a family of four in the county is $66,848. Seniors aren’t much better off, though

only 7.1 percent live below the federal poverty level of $14, 570 for a family of two. Seniors owning their own homes with the mortgage paid off needs $18, 361, while those who still have mortgages require $48,402. The average social security payment for a couple in 2009 was $18,288. The report notes that seniors have more trouble supplementing their income. Countywide, Santa Barbara has an unemployment rate of 8.6 percent, close to the national rate of 9.0. However three of the county’s major cities, Lompoc, Guadalupe, and Santa Maria have been hit hard by the recession with unemployment rates at 15, 14.5, and 13.3 percent respectively. That accounts for nearly half of the county’s unemployed. The report will be paid for with a $30,000 allocation from the county general fund and matched by a $30,000 federal grant. The allocation requires a 4/5 vote from the supervisors. Carbajal believes his colleagues will see the importance of the study. “Our community in Santa Barbara County has always demonstrated the value of stepping up to help the least among us,” Carbajal said.

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors is pondering a comprehensive poverty assessment study. The supervisors today will consider giving the go-ahead to develop a $60,000 report that assesses the impacts of poverty in the Santa Barbara area, and then recommendations to improve services. First District Supervisor Salud Carbajal put the proposal forward after new census data came out. Carbajal said he’d been concerned about the increasing impact of poverty on county resources. “This is a step in a positive direction in trying to make sure the most vulnerable and those that have the least among us have their needs and concerns better addressed,” Carbajal said. The release of census data this year raised more alarms as it show more Americans living in poverty. The problem appears to be worsening in Santa Barbara. “Every indicator is affirming the statistics put forward by the federal government,” Carbajal said. Carbajal said the study will also help look for some solutions. Right now, the county doesn’t know if it has services

that overlap with other agencies, or if there are any critical gaps, or even if it could do better coordinating with city agencies and non-profits. “We don’t have a picture that’s as clear as it could be,” Carbajal said.

CHIPOTLE REPLACING BAJA FRESH: The Santa Barbara News-Press reported last week that Baja Fresh at 3851 State St. near La Cumbre Plaza will be replaced by Chipotle.

next to California Pizza Kitchen. This is completely unconfirmed. Though I always risk a public beating for posting potentially-bogus information, it is my job to keep you on the cutting-edge of local food news so I thought I would just put it out there for all of us to ponder…

In the end, working the truck was consuming all of our family time, and we had to make the very difficult decision to let it go. This Saturday, 11/19, we’ll be making a final appearance at Oreana winery. Thanks again, we’ll miss you! Sincerely, Hayden and Sudathip”

WOODY’S AT EARL WARREN CLOSES: I called Woody’s BBQ in Goleta and was told that Woody’s Roundup Bar & Grill at Earl Warren Showgrounds closed their doors a few weeks ago. Woody’s Roundup opened in July 2010.

It’s been a real pleasure sharing our food with you, and we hope you liked it! We’ve grown to know many of you personally, and will truly miss seeing you at the truck each day.

The executive director of the Santa Barbarabased non profit The Teddy Cancer Foundation will be stepping down at the end of the year, but the foundation remains optimistic. Marni Rozet, executive director, said she is leaving to take care of her family, but will still remain a figure within the organization and has been working with other members to plan future expansion before she steps down at the year’s end. She said it was a “difficult decision,” but ultimately felt it was important to spend more time with her kids. Michelle Pickett, chair of the organization, praised Rozet for her accomplishments but said she anticipates continued growth. “We are grateful...for her dedication in

the need for such a comprehensive report. Helping smaller cities such as Santa Barbara and Ojai, which is also considering a ban, is the intention behind the agency’s resolution, said BEACON board member and Santa Barbara city councilman Grant House. “BEACON really has ocean water quality at heart,” House said. “This is really a nice use of that agency to provide something that all of its members could use.” Recent local and statewide developments have sparked hope in those waiting to see the plastic bag go down. Just days after the Santa Barbara vote, the California Supreme Court upheld Manhattan Beach’s ban which was challenged by a plastic bag industry interest group. Riding on the success of a local Albertsons in eliminating single-use bags, the city of Carpinteria set in motion plans for a ban last month. At least 13 municipalities in California have adopted restrictive measures, including Los Angeles County, which banned bags in unincorporated areas in 2010.

implementing two major fundraising events during this time – both of which reached new levels,” said Picket. “It is with excitement and the full support of our Board and our staff that we are ready to grow Teddy Bear and reach more families than ever.” The foundation provides financial aid services for middle- to low-income families of children battling cancer. Since it was founded nine years ago, the organization has spread to service all areas of the Tri-Counties. It provides 10 times more financial aid than any other national organization that provides assistance to children with cancer. To fill the position the organization is looking for a dedicated, passionate individual with a track record in growing foundations and can help the organizations continued need to expand. Supervisor Doreen Farr said that the success of the Albertsons store, which has reported that it has not seen a decrease in business, has been important in testing the waters and could ease some of the oppositions concerns. “That is a model that is out there, which is always a good thing,” she said. Environmentalists decry the bags for a number of reasons. They are a petroleum based product and release toxic chemicals during production. They are often discarded and end up in ocean. Santa Barbara ChannelKeeper, a nonprofit that does multiple beach and creek cleanups annually, cites them as one of its top 10 items found. Once in the ocean, they can cause problems, even death for wildlife who become entangled in them or mistakenly ingest them. Californians use about 12 billion bags annually, and global pollution has caused 25 percent of the world to restrict or ban them. “The science is out, the science is clear,” Carbajal said. “Unless we take a proactive approach we are keeping our heads in the sand.”

ing, when Cottage presented a required sixmonth status update on the project. Cottage won approval in 2006 to demolish the beloved, but financially unsustainable, St. Francis Medical Center. Cottage purchased the property with the goal of building so-called “workforce housing” for its doctors, nurses and other key hospital staff. Santa Barbara’s high cost of living makes it financially difficult for employees to afford a home in Santa Barbara. The project was designed to improve recruitment and retention for the hospital system. Many residents fought the closure of St. Francis, then the size of Cottage’s project. Each time Cottage prevailed. Crews expect to complete construction by Dec. 2012. But in the meantime, Cottage’s development team will have to decide whether it wants to work with the neighbors to resolve some of the recent flare-ups. The neighbors want Cottage and Southern California Edison to put the pole underground. Cottage doesn’t want to spend $40,000 to do so. “I don’t have ill-will toward Cottage,” said neighborhood resident David Boire. “But I have ill-will toward the carelessness of them not approaching this pole properly and not being sensitive to our needs.” Boire is also upset that Cottage has not been fined for any of its recent violations. “This is highly irregular to not negatively incentivize the contractors to cease noise and truck traffic violations,” Boire said. Officials with Cottage’s real estate development team said they are not going pay to have the pole moved. In fact, Ron Biscaro, vice president of project management, and the former president of the torn-down St. Francis Medical Center, AIRMON E EP COM Y.

‘I don’t have ill-will toward Cottage. But I have ill-will toward the carelessness of them not approaching this pole properly and not being sensitive to our needs.’

Neighbor David Boire

downplayed the concerns of the neighbors. “I have a pole in my backyard,” Biscaro said. “We have no intention of doing anything about it. We are not going to redo what we have done.” Legally, Cottage doesn’t have to move the pole. Assistant City Attorney Scott Vincent said Edison has a franchise agreement with the city to install and maintain the polls. The design and makeup of the poles are largely dictated by the public utilities commission uniform building code standards, he said. “There are solutions, but whether they are solutions everybody wants, is another question,” Vincent said. Some city planning commissioners and neighborhood residents believe Cottage should take the moral high ground and pay for the pole to be placed underground. “It’s a just a gigantic thing sitting up there,” Commissioner Jacobs said. “I think this is a very poor response from Cottage. “I would have expected better. I am disappointed that we have no legal recourse to do anything different.” Planning commissioner Deborah Schwartz agreed. “I really feel for the neighbors,” she said.
