Local News

To Our Readers

It wasn't the earthquake that was the problem, it was the aftershock.

Fortunately, Tuesday morning’s earthquake provided little more than a thrill ride for Santa Barbara and Goleta residents. In the quake’s wake, however, a deluge of traffic overwhelmed Noozhawk‘s third-party Web host, and some of you may have experienced intermittent access problems. Our server service has since been upgraded but please do continue to challenge us. Set Noozhawk as your home page, visit as often as you like. We’re open 24 hours.

On behalf of our staff and our advertisers, Noozhawk would like to thank you for your support. We’re proud that South Coast residents are increasingly turning to us first for local news, information, and knowledge.

— William M. Macfadyen
Noozhawk founder, publisher and CEO

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!
