The Friendship Adult Day Care Center of Santa Barbara has welcomed new members Roger Aceves and Karolyn Hanna to its board of directors.

Returning this year are Joanne Talbot, a registered nurse and marriage family therapist, and past board president Marty Moore, superintendent of Birnam Wood Golf Course.

A registered nurse, Hanna worked at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital as director of nursing education before assuming a faculty position with the Associate Degree Nursing Program at SBCC.

She retired from full-time teaching at SBCC in June 2010, but before that was active in campus committees and served two terms as president of the SBCC Academic Senate at the college.

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!
