Andy Alexander: Get Rockin’ in Funk Zone to Assist Teen Court

The Santa Barbara Association of Realtors Community Outreach Committee is hosting an upcoming event Rockin’ in the Funk Zone, 5-8 p.m. Aug. 17 at Shalhoob’s Funk Zone Patio, 220 Gray Ave.

The event supports CADA’s Teen Court program and will feature singer and songwriter Lois Mahalia and her band.

The Teen Court program is a juvenile justice diversion program for early teen offenders where youth, accompanied by their parents, go in front of an adult judge and a jury of teen peers, who create unique and restorative sentences, rather than the traditional juvenile justice or school disciplinary process.

On average, 300 local teens go through the program each year. This past year, less than 2 percent of teens graduating from Teen Court had any further offenses in the six months following program completion.

Delicious Shalhoob tri-tip, beer and wine will be available for purchase at the event. Tickets cost $25 and automatically enter you into a drawing with great prizes.

To buy tickets, visit the SBAOR office, 1415 Chapala St., or visit https://sbaorsupportscada.eventbrite.com.

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!
