The Community Action Commission of Santa Barbara County has announced its 2012 Community Action Champions.

The awardees are Patricia Stewart, recently retired chief probation officer for the Santa Barbara County Probation Department; Sylvia Ng, founder of both the Central Coast and Golden Valley Altrusa International service clubs and community fundraiser on behalf of children; and Randy Weiss, vice president of community relations for Santa Barbara Bank & Trust.

Champions are selected because of their profound effect on the greater good of the community and their emphasis on helping those who are most vulnerable.

The honorees are chosen by a committee that includes CAC board members, elected officials and representatives of community agencies and nonprofit programs.

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!
