Community Television Broadcasts Foreclosure Seminars

English and Spanish versions will be available

Santa Maria Community Television (SMCTV) will cablecast Home Foreclosure Prevention Workshops on Comcast Channel 23, the government public access channel in the Santa Maria/Orcutt area.

These 30-minute programs, in separate English and Spanish versions, are videotapes of workshops presented in February at the Santa Maria Public Library. The workshops were co-sponsored by the City of Santa Maria and the Cabrillo Economic Development Corporation (CEDC), a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development-approved counseling agency.

The shows are designed for people worried about current mortgages, who are facing home foreclosure or who just want to learn more about options that may be available. English showtimes are Mondays at 7:30 a.m., Saturdays at 9 a.m. and Sundays at 7:30 p.m. Spanish showtimes are Mondays at 6:30 a.m., Saturdays at 8 a.m. and Sundays at 6:30 p.m.

CEDC staff is available for one-on-one counseling to assist in an effort to negotiate a workout plan with lenders and talk about alternatives to foreclosure when home ownership cannot be maintained. Call 805.614.0267 to make an appointment.

Santa Maria Community Television (formerly Television Access Partners, Santa Maria), 910 S. Oakwood Dr., provides public access television services in support of non-commercial programs produced by individuals, schools, government agencies and non-profit organizations. SMCTV has been in operation since August 2004, and is entirely funded by Comcast Cablevision through its franchise agreement with the city of Santa Maria. Click here for more information.

Questions may be directed to SMCTV Station Manager Alan Sutterfield at 805.925-0951, ext. 501.

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!
