    yuck! poorly done and would expect more from a child center

  • Looks like they don't have the training and policy info on site and some sink covering missing. No expired food. No bugs or rat droppings. Not great but I don't think there was significant risk.

'I had no idea the flames could go that fast': Goleta devastated by fire as record heat burns path of destruction

“This one’s the 1873 Winchester,” he said, studying one of them before turning to another. “This is my grandfather’s right here.”

    'I had no idea the flames could go that fast': Goleta devastated by fire as record heat burns path of destruction
    Firefighters on Saturday were battling a destructive fire that snaked through a hillside area of Goleta, one of several blazes that destroyed homes amid a record-setting heat wave in Southern California. Fire personnel spent the night and morning in pitched battle against the Holiday fire, which exploded Friday night amid 100-degree temperatures and dangerous "sundowner" winds that made the blaze impossible to control.

Construction

What is going on with the factory on the 2700 block of armitage? I have not seen anyone working there for months.

  • Rick Stoneham Logan resident since 1984

    Probably a permit issue. I’ve been worried about the lake that formed on the site as a mosquito breeding pond. But yesterday saw workmen draining it. It looks like construction will start again but I’ve been wrong before. I have to look down on it every day.

  • They are awaiting a shipment of steel. The cost of steel went up due to the Trump tariffs and now the supplier can't honor the original quote.

    To clarify: They are delayed waiting for the shipment, the tariff thing is my own speculation. There were men in the yesterday working.

Friendly feral near Belden/Central Park

We've had a black TNR cat slinking around our 'hood for about a year but he's been increasingly hanging out in our yard and on our porch. We like the little guy and don't mind--I'm just curious if he has a caretaker/has a colony he's part of.

  • They do seem to get attached to certain yards..even people..though they don't get close. Was there a pic?

  • You might be talking about our next door neighbor's cat - we're at Fullerton and Lawndale right behind The Little Pickle, and our elderly neighbor cares for a mostly feral black cat that he calls for named "Beady" (i.e., beady eyes). If you see a calico cat around it too sometimes, that is the other cat he cares for, but he much prefers the black one.

Hey everyone, I lost some keys on the 606 trail on Monday, 6/25/18.
I was hoping if anyone has seen them and can return them. They are keys that have a blue buckle, it has two bottle openers ( one is a blue bud light, and the other is a picture of the Virgin Mary). Please help.

Bookkeeper needed

I am looking for a bookkeeper for my business which is in the neighborhood. Experience in manufacturing is a plus as we have many employees and ship a lot of product. I am checking here before posting to the usual places. Let me know if you or someone you know is interested.

  • Hi George-

    I posted about 1 month ago looking for a bookkeeper as well. Hopefully you get more response than I. Where else are you posting?

  • Tomorrow is another day Happy resident of North Park Village

    You might try one of the moonlighting websites. The only one I can remember right now is:

    gomnlt.com

    I'm sure if you did a search for moonlighting jobs, you'd find them.

Home builder suggestions?

Hi all, We've thought about building in the neighborhood, but all the GC's we've spoken to seem to be price gouging. Doing a hail mary pass here, can anyone suggest a home builder that's ethical, with reasonable prices? Every builder we've spoken to seems to look at the land prices in the area, look up the most expensive new houses in the area, subtract the two and then gives us the build price, leaving no equity. Two GC's outright admitted that that's how they determined the bid price.
Thanks for any helpful suggestions.

  • There is also the 'premium' charged for a trendy neighborhood. East of Western is one price, west of western another. I've had contractors tell me that.

  • Scott Rappe Architect, Father, Fourth Generation East Villager

    We are a local architectural firm that focuses on custom residential design. We have a very good builder that we partner with to do design-build. This is a good approach if you want good custom design within a specific budget. Check out www.kplusr.com and feel free to give me a call. No obligation.
