Panel: Montecito Billionaires Clash Over Pickle Ball as SB Moves on Homeless Camps, MS-13 Trial Set
An only-in-Santa Barbara battle of billionaires pitted Beanie Baby titan Ty Warner against subprime mortgage rogue Angelo Mozilo this week, in a land use permit conflict over pickle ball courts and batting cages.
Josh Molina has all the details on the latest edition of Newsmakers TV, as Noozhawk colleague Janene Scully breaks down the latest on the epic multiple murder case involving the international criminal gang MS-13, and SB Independent honcho Nick Welsh offers a first-person look at the city's effort to move homeless people out of hazardous encampments into temporary hotel housing.
Then the gang goes around the horn to examine a shocking and embarrassing report about pollution at East Beach, the city's approval of a big, affordable housing project and the Coastal Commission's okay for tests of a new artillery system at Vandenberg, despite its detrimental impact on sea critters.
Plus: It's the 15th anniversary of the meltdown in De La Guerra Plaza. If it's Friday, it's Newsmakers TV.
