Music at the Ranch Kicks Off

Tony Ybarra and Sonido Morenos will start the free summer concert series Tuesday evening.

The Goleta Valley Historical Society kicks off Music at the Ranch on Tuesday.

The free concerts are from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesdays through Aug. 19 in the gardens of Rancho La Patera and Stow House, 304 N. Los Carneros in Goleta.

The community is encouraged to bring a picnic dinner. Wine and other beverages will be available for purchase.

Tony Ybarra and Sonido Morenos start off the series this Tuesday and will entertain with romantic melodies, invigorating rhythms and virtuosic guitar performances.

The second annual Music at the Ranch” series follows the cancellation of the Goleta Valley Historical Society’s largest fundraiser, Old-Fashioned Fourth of July, because of the Gap Fire.

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!
