Letter to the Editor: Open the Doors

The problems we are having on the homeless front should not be blamed on anyone but our federal government. It is not because of Santa Barbara’s nonprofit organizations. Santa Barbara works hard every day when it comes to the homeless issues. We need to look at the big picture and that is hard for many of us. As we continue to allow greed and corporations to rule us. Trillions of dollars are taken away every day we fight wars and continue to bomb Libya. As this goes on, millions of Americans will lose their jobs, their houses, only to find themselves living out of their vehicles. We must realize that our government is not going to save us — they never have. As a city, we all need to come together and discuss the problems and solutions. We must open the doors of communication — now.

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!
