A tribe is preparing to invest more than $100 million in an expansion and upgrade of its Vegas-style casino in the Santa Ynez Valley, tripling the size of its hotel and opening the door to negotiations that could lead to a greater footprint in California's $7-billion Indian gambling industry. But word of the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians' expansion plan has ratcheted up tension and distrust between the Native Americans and some of their neighbors in Santa Barbara County. "It's huge - a huge expansion," said Robert F. Field, a local resident.

Laguna Beach knew it had to bring its best game to topple top-seeded Santa Ynez in Saturday's Southern Section Division III boys' volleyball championship match at Cypress College. Unfortunately for the Artists, they didn't play well and their opponents were sharp, resulting in a 15-4, 15-8, 15-2 blowout that took a little more than an hour.

The parents of a 4-year-old girl were arrested on suspicion of felony child endangerment earlier this week after allegedly leaving the child alone in a car while they gambled at the Chumash Casino. Santa Barbara County sheriff's deputies were called to the casino in Santa Ynez about 12:30 p.m. Tuesday after the child was found by herself, walking around the parking structure at the casino. "The passerby, who found the child, took her to the security desk and the Santa Barbara County sheriff's office was notified," according to a news release from the agency.

Another year, another good team and another season of highlights and high hopes ended for Lincoln in the Southern California Division IV Girls' Regional semifinals Thursday. The second-seeded Hornets, an efficient team through much of the season, came up short, 53-44, against second-seeded Santa Ynez, Southern Section runner-up. The Hornets shot only 22%, making 15 of 68 shots from the field on their home floor.

Fourth-seeded Corona del Mar, plagued by unforced errors and a shaky passing game, fell to second-seeded Santa Ynez, 15-9, 15-5, 15-8, in the Southern Section Division IV boys' volleyball final Saturday at Cypress College. "It's a simple equation," Sea King Coach Steve Conti said. "The team that makes the most mistakes is going to be on the losing side, and that was us." The teams battled back and forth in the first game, with Brian Gallagher's kill tying the score at 7-7 for the Sea Kings.

Santa Barbara County sheriff's deputies seized 19 roosters and detained four people, including an 85-year-old man, over the weekend after discovering an alleged cockfighting ring, authorities said Tuesday. About 11 a.m. Sunday, deputies responded to complaints about a group of cars parked on private land near the Santa Maria Airport, said Santa Barbara County sheriff's spokeswoman Kelly Hoover. When the deputies arrived at the wooded area, Hoover said, they found about 20 cars parked in a field and could hear roosters.

Re "Tribal plan roils Santa Ynez Valley," Dec. 16 The Santa Ynez Valley, where I live, has retained its rural ambience with carefully crafted zoning laws. Community members who have participated in the planning process labored over plans that stated the community's preference for how development should proceed. A key element of these community documents included a desire to keep as much agriculturally zoned land as possible outside the valley's five population centers. The 1,400-acre Camp 4 property purchased by the Chumash is currently zoned to allow for parcels no smaller than 100 acres.

SANTA YNEZ, Calif. - The Chumash Indians, first seen by explorers along the California coast in the fall of 1542, did not have running water on their tiny, sickle-shaped reservation until the 1960s. Over time, the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians clawed its way to sustainability, and more. The tribe harnessed Depression-era laws of self-governance, state and federal gambling initiatives. A casino opened in 2003. Healthcare is paid for. The tribe foots the bill for any recognized descendant who wants to go to college.

The renowned Sashi Moorman makes the wines for Stolpman Vineyards in Santa Barbara County's new Ballard Canyon appellation. Though Stolpman's Syrahs tend to get most of the attention, I'm more impressed with the Roussanne called L'Avion. The vineyard, farmed organically, the vineyard is actually planted on what was once the landing strip for planes in the '30s and '40s. Fermented in big French oak casks and aged on its lees for over a year, the 2010 L'Avion is rich and complex with scents of honey and jasmine.

August 20, 2013 | By The Times editorial board
The Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, which operates a popular casino and resort on its reservation northwest of Santa Barbara, is eager to expand beyond its current acreage. With that it mind, in 2010 it purchased a huge tract of land - nearly 1,400 acres - a few miles away and eventually announced plans to build houses on it. The tribe may have a persuasive case for building homes for more of its people among the vineyards of the so-called Camp 4 land. But the Chumash shouldn't be able to exclude such a large swath of property from county rules and taxes by claiming tribal jurisdiction over the property.
