CADA/Fighting Back Forms Media Task Force

The Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse has formed a new Media Task Force.

Headed by Catherine Remak, the committee will meet quarterly but will work together year-round to pool media resources and brainstorm creative ideas for helping CADA achieve its mission: to create a safer, healthier community by reducing the negative effects of drug and alcohol abuse in Santa Barbara County.

CADA offers myriad services, both school- and community-based, from preventive to recovery programs.

The Task Force met recently to discuss media support for CADA/Fighting Back’s banner projects, such as the annual Mission for Mentors Telethon this month and Summit for Danny on Oct. 26.

— Alice San Andres Calleja represents The Mesa Paper.

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!
