Raphael Kunz, the Rotary Club of Goleta Noontime’s exchange student from Switzerland, was the featured speaker at the club’s luncheon meeting last week at the Elephant Bar & Restaurant, 521 Firestone Road.

Kunz, a senior at Dos Pueblos High, arrived in mid-August 2008 and is scheduled to return home this summer. He provided Rotarians and their guests with a slide show and some perspective on his home country. Afterward, he exchanged Rotary banners with club president Barbara Tzur.

Also attending the luncheon were Sandra Iraheta, a San Marcos High senior and the reigning Goleta Teen of the Year, and three fellow finalists: San Marcos High senior Danielle Gemberling and Dos Pueblos High seniors Caitlin Racich and Blaz Uribe.

Rotary Club of Goleta Noontime meets at 11:44 a.m. each Tuesday at the Elephant Bar. Click here for more information.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
