Noozhawk Set to Storify Santa Barbara’s Independence Day Celebrations

You can help us cover the South Coast on the Fourth of July — and enjoy some lemonade, too

Noozhawk will be out and about on the Fourth of July, and we’re inviting you to join us — either in-person or virtually.

If you’re in the vicinity of the Santa Barbara County Courthouse Sunken Garden, 1100 Anacapa St., stop by Noozhawk’s lemonade stand for some free refreshments during Monday’s patriotic concert from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Noozhawk marketing director Melinda Johansson and marketing intern Chloe Balma will be keeping the glasses half-full while they tell you about several exciting projects and initiatives our reporters are working on this summer.

Throughout the day, meanwhile, you can watch the South Coast’s numerous Independence Day celebrations unfold in real time on Noozhawk.

Using Storify, a new social-media blogging platform, we’ll be curating a timeline of your posts from Facebook, Flickr, Twitter, YouTube and a handful of other Web sites. To join the conversation and help tell the story, use the #J4nooz hashtag on Twitter.

Noozhawk photographers Garrett Geyer and Nick St.Oegger will be putting together a slideshow and we would like to include your pictures, too. Email photos to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

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!
