After slipping onto the council through the back door in rare appointment process, Paradise Café owner Randy Rowse wants Santa Barbarans to vote him in through the front. More at home serving burgers, beer, and clam chowder at the Paradise Café, Rowse is quick to share a joke, a handshake, and a “How’s your day?” before getting into politics. But with concerns mounting over public safety, homeless issues, and the budget, Rowse became a frequent critic of City Hall. But Rowse said he’d been told that if he really wanted to change things, he should get on the council. Mounting a campaign hadn’t seemed like a possibility. When a seat opened up after Das Williams won a place in the state Assembly, Rowse threw his name in with 45 others. “It was a put up or shut up moment,” Rowse said. Rowse’s appointment shook up a City Council that hadn’t seen a conservative majority in decades. It came as a shock with an evenly divided council named him to fill the seat vacated by then-Assembly-elect Das Williams. Williams’ vacancy left the council with a

NOT JUST THE SAFEST CHOICE. BUT THE CHOICE FOR SAFETY. In the last ten years, public safety in Santa Barbara has steadily declined. During the same span, the number of Police and Firefighters has decreased substantially. It is for this reason, Santa Barbara Police Officers Association and Santa Barbara City Firefighters Association urge you to elect these three city council candidates.

three-three split. Rowse had garnered the support of conservative members, Francisco, Self, and Frank Hotchkiss. After Francisco mentioned Rowse didn’t plan on running for reelection, Grant House broke ranks with liberal colleagues and threw his support behind Rowse. Now a professed decline-to-state, Rowse has still found himself alongside conservative incumbents Michael Self and Dale Francisco, trying to hold on to a conservative majority. They face off with the Democrat-backed Deborah Schwartz, Cathy Murillo, and Iya Falcone and independents Sharon Byrne, Cruzito Cruz, Sebastian Aldana, and Jerry Matteo. Rowse said he never made any promises to just serve out a term. He decided to run again after he saw the field of challengers. “If I thought any of my opponents could do better than I would, I’d step aside and say, ‘Go get ‘em,” Rowse said. He believes the council needs someone with a background in local business, someone who’s raised kids at local schools, and someone who knows the community organizations that make Santa Barbara tick.

Oakland police, protesters scuffle
(Reuters) - Police and protesters scuffled in Northern California on Tuesday as more than 1,000 people marched on city hall in Oakland to voice anger over arrests at an "Occupy Wall Street" camp. Police surrounded a group of demonstrators on a downtown Oakland street, taking several into custody before setting off what appeared to be a stun grenade to disperse the throng. The bulk of the crowd headed for city hall, with leaders saying they intended to reclaim Frank Ogawa Plaza, the site of two weeks of protests against economic inequality before police firing beanbags cleared the area before dawn. At the plaza, police ordered protesters to disperse and were met with some cooperation. "I'm here because I'm incredibly sad and incredibly angry, protester Samsarah Morgan, 51, said. "I'm hoping our city government comes to their senses and stops dealing with us like a fascist state." Oakland city spokeswoman Karen Boyd said those arrested at the encampment overnight faced charges for camping or assembling without a permit in the plaza.
Turkey seaches for survivors
(Reuters) - Turkey clung to hopes on Wednesday of finding survivors under rubble three days after a powerful earthquake killed at least 459 people, and the government finally requested foreign help to shelter thousands of homeless families. The survival of a 14-day-old prematurely born baby girl called Azra had lifted hearts Tuesday. She was flown to the capital Ankara with her injured mother. While the death toll stood at 459, officials said it was likely to rise as many people were still missing. Survivors being treated at a hospital in the provincial capital Van told of their ordeal while waiting to be rescued. "We were holding our breath, we were thirsty. At some point we saw rescuers working to remove rubble. They said, 'Hold on for five minutes, we will get you out of there'. But they didn't rescue us that day," Omer Yildiz told Reuters.
Bear roams NASA JPL campus
(Reuters) - Employees of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory near Los Angeles were advised to stay indoors on Tuesday after a 200-pound bear was spotted roaming the campus. The lab arranged escorts for workers at the north side of the facility, which manages many of NASA's planetary space missions, JPL spokeswoman Veronica McGregor said, after the bear was seen there at about 4 a.m. local time. By 9 a.m. the animal had apparently wandered back into the hills surrounding JPL, which is nestled in the foothills above Pasadena next to the Angeles National Forest, McGregor said. "They did estimate the bear's size at about 200 pounds and it was spotted in the early predawn hours so that's why we were able to put out the notification," she said.
Though households across the country are plagued with the disease of alcohol and drug addiction on a daily basis, there is only one week each year truly dedicated to eradicating that sickness. This is that week. Red Ribbon Week was born in 1985 following the death of D.E.A officer Enrique Camarena who was tortured and murdered by Mexican drug lords. Since then, the last week of October has been celebrated in schools nationwide by wearing red ribbons or wristbands to commemorate all the lives lost due to drug and alcohol abuse and to raise awareness. Teenagers from Friday Night Live, a group of local highschoolers, presented the Santa Barbara Unified School Districts Education Board with wrist bands at a meeting last night. “We’re here to raise awareness,” said Stephanie Vargas, a senior at Santa Barbara High School. She was joined by two other members of the group also from that high school, Jenny Castro, a sophomore, and Derek Johnson, a senior. The other high schools in the district, Dos Pueblos and San Marcos, also have chapters of the group.
Vargas and Castro told the board of the group’s efforts to combat drug use and raise awareness throughout the celebrated week. They have decked campus with posters, put up messages on bulletin boards, organized activities during the lunch hour, and dances with competitions. They have given presentations and also held workshops on issues such as alcohol consumption and safe driving. Member Ed Heron thanked and congratulated the students and reflected on a parents pledge he took in when his children were in school. It outlined vigilant parenting techniques such as not letting parties happen in one’s house or aid in consumption, and to develop a clear “hugs not drugs” message. He said he is glad he adopted those principles and stuck to them. “A lot of people thought I was crazy,” he said, “but I still believe in them today and my kids turned out really good.” In addition to the on campus activities during the week, schools are also promoting involvement in the Summit for Danny fundraiser, a public event put on by the Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. Sponsored event participants will raise money for the Daniel Bryant Youth Family Center, and have the choice of three hikes, all leaving from Manning Park.
(Reuters) - President Barack Obama is taking steps to ease the burden of student loans, the White House said on Tuesday, potentially helping millions of cash-strapped college graduates in a tough economy. Obama plans to accelerate a plan to cap student loan payments at 10 percent of income, bringing it forward to start in 2012 instead of 2014. "Steps like these won't take the place of the bold action we need from Congress to boost our economy and create jobs, but they will make a difference," he said in a statement. The loans initiative will be the third such move by Obama in as many days, following action to aid homeowners and boost hiring of military veterans. The White House wants to show he is an activist president battling a "do-nothing" Congress. The loan changes do not require approval by Congress. Republican lawmakers blocked a $447 billion jobs plan put forward by Obama last month because it raises some taxes. Students helped push Obama into the White House in 2008. As he campaigns for reelection in 2012, Obama's public approval ratings have fallen near 40 percent, the low of his presidency, because of dis-
content with his economic stewardship. Americans owe more on student loans than on outstanding credit card debt, and total loans outstanding are slated to exceed $1 trillion this year, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. The rise in private student lending and growing debt defaults have also been highlighted by the Occupy Wall Street protesters. Obama will announce the student loan measure in Denver on Wednesday as he wraps up a swing through western states that will be vital to his re-election campaign in 2012. The White House estimates the loan changes could cut monthly payments for 1.6 million graduates. Student debt will also be forgiven after 20 years, compared with 25 years under current law. More than 36 million Americans have federal student loan debt, but only 450,000 have so far taken advantage of the existing income-based repayment program. Obama will also make changes to allow 6 million students to bundle together certain federal loans to allow a single monthly payment, reducing the risk of default caused by juggling multiple debt obligations.

School district tackles new discipline models BY ELISE CLEMENTS
DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER
Based off the findings of a recent report, the Santa Barbara Unified School District may switch to a restorative justice model of discipline. The district’s Board of Education members discussed the report at last night’s meeting, prompting conflicting and emotionally charged responses from board members. Member Ed Heron felt that the report, which drew its findings from a sample of 42 students, was an errant portrayal of staff based on a limited and unrepresentative sample. “It’s a broad indictment of school personnel that I don’t really buy into,” he said. “I don’t believe there is physical abuse, verbal abuse, and students avoiding school for fear of violent action.” But Heron was opposed by the two Latina members on the board, Monique Limon and Board President Annette Cordero. “I’d love to tell you that this is not a part of my reality, but it is.” Limone said. “This is real, and it’s real to me.” She pointed out that where 42 students out of the district’s 15,000 might not seem like a very representative sample, that it is a historical prob-

lem that has been happening for decades. She said that national reports reflect the experiences shared by local students, adding further validity to the claims. Cordero said it is important to get the input from these voices for the betterment of not only students and schools, but the community. “I’m concerned that we need to hear it and we need to believe it,” Cordero said. She said that she was particularly struck by a statement by one student in the report who said “people will find respect however they can get it.” Schools, Cordero said, need to be a place where students can find the respect they seek. “We need to get back to that idea,” she said. “If we can get them getting that respect in the classroom, they won’t be looking for it out there.” Superintendent David Cash acknowledged the sensitivity of the issue but said the confusion and emotion surrounding it could be used to an advantage. He is eager to move forward and work more with its findings. “This will be the first time our district will be taking an in-depth look at this issue,” he said. “I’m excited about that. Whatever comes out will be good for kids because we’ll be having a highlevel conversation.”
County of Santa Barbara Housing & Community Development Public Workshop
The Santa Barbara County Department of Housing & Community Development will be hosting a public workshop in preparation for the upcoming 2012-2013 Program Year funding cycle. The County serves as the lead agency in the Urban County (Buellton, Carpinteria, Lompoc, Solvang) and the HOME Consortium (Urban County members plus Goleta and Santa Maria), which receive federal grant funds from the US Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD) through three programs: • Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) – community development projects • HOME Investment Partnerships Act (HOME) – affordable housing projects • Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG) – homeless programs Every year, the County announces the availability of these funds through a Notice of Funding Availability (NOFA) process, which is administered by the County on behalf of the Urban County and HOME Consortium. Interested organizations, community stakeholders, and members of the public are invited to participate in this workshop, which will provide information on estimated funding available during the 2012-2013 Program Year, the funding application process, and the criteria by which applications will be evaluated. This will include information on local and congressional priorities and objectives under the CDBG, HOME, and ESG programs. County HCD welcomes feedback on the NOFA process and will report to the County Board of Supervisors in November on the feedback received through the workshops. Public Workshop times and location: Thursday, November 3, 2011 10:30 AM St. Mark’s Episcopal Church 2901 Nojoqui Avenue Los Olivos, California This facility is accessible to persons with disabilities. If you require further accommodations, please contact the Housing and Community Development office at (805) 568-3523, 72 hours in advance.

Odd and entertaining tales of medical mishaps
“The Woman Who Swallowed Her Cat and Other Gruesome Medical Tales” by Rob Myers, M.D. c.2011, ECW Press BY TERRI SCHLICHENMEYER
Cut back or quit?
THE BOOKWORM SEZ
You are the safest person you know. Why risk it? That’s your motto. You always buckle up when you drive, you only go the speed limit and you rarely pass anybody on the road. Your house is filled with grab bars, anti-slip mats, environmentally safe products, extra everything so you never run out, the neighbors’ phone numbers, and a written back-up plan. Always Be Prepared, that’s your way of life. But things happen - usually in the worst way, as you’ll see in “The Woman Who Swallowed Her Cat and Other Gruesome Medical Tales” by Rob Myers, M.D. When you hear about somebody involved in an oops, you have to wince. Yep, you’ve been there and accidents are no fun.
Who would believe, for instance, that a man could choke on a cue ball he’d forced into his own mouth? Or that someone would happily inject hair tonic into her own body, just to get attention?
But at least you’ve lived through them. It’s not always that way, of course, and this book is filled with “bizarre… unbelievable, bewildering and incomprehensible” cases that really happened. Or did they? Who would believe, for instance, that a man could choke on a cue ball he’d forced into his own mouth? Or that someone would happily inject hair tonic into her own body, just to get attention? Or that anybody could consume enough alcohol to think that a lawn mower would make a right fine hedge trimmer? Then again, there are those accidents that make rumors: delusional thieves who climb down a business’s furnace vent and get stuck; or things that end up in, um… places they shouldn’t be; or people who die because of allergies they never knew they had; or people who underestimate the power of powertools. And then there are the cautionary tales you’ve heard, the
It’s your decision. We’ll help.
ones that make you want to sit in your house and not move a muscle: the worms that can infest your body, the dangers of driving too recklessly, the things that recreational drugs can do to mind and body, the problems with eating too much, too fast, too wrong. Even your everyday pleasures are suspect, but there’s some advice to be gleaned from this book. Don’t open your mouth if you go fishing. Don’t try to outrun police on a hot day. Don’t sit anywhere near moving toys. Taste your coffee before drinking. And always watch where you swim. Life is weird and, apparently, so is death. But both are featured in this odd and oddly entertaining little book. Toronto cardiologist and author Rob Myers has pulled together dozens of short, sometimes disgusting, mostly incredible stories of death, disaster, and dismay. That may seem like something you’d want to avoid reading, but what’s most amazing is how addicting this book really is. Although some of the stories may seem dubious – indeed, Myers tantalizes readers by admitting that one tale is fictional – and though the stories are sometimes cringe-worthy, this book, much like the proverbial car crash it includes, is hard to resist peeking at. “The Woman Who Swallowed Her Cat” isn’t for everybody, but if you’re the right reader in the right frame of mind, it’s highly entertaining. For you, this book is a pretty safe bet.
