Capps to Help High School Celebrate Reopening of Net Cafe

Rep. Lois Capps will join Santa Barbara High School students at 10:30 a.m. Friday for the grand reopening of the Dons Net Café.

The Dons Net Café is a student-run business at Santa Barbara High School that helps students learn firsthand about running a small business.

“I am so impressed by the leadership and vision of the Santa Barbara High School students at Dons Net Café,” Capps said. “Kids are never too young to learn the value of hard work and money, and this small business offers students the perfect opportunity to gain precious real-world experience while additionally providing a great service to their classmates and the community.

“I am particularly pleased that students use thecafé for the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance Program, which teaches students to become certified the basic tax preparation so they can help process income taxes for low-income families. Not only is this Net Café teaching students valuable business skills, but it’s teaching them good business ethics and the importance of giving back to their community.”

Emily Kryder is press secretary for Rep. Lois Capps.

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!
