Ernest Righetti High Holding Saturday Fundraiser to Benefit School Magazine

The Santa Maria Valley is invited on Saturday to chow down on barbecue fare, listen to music and enjoy a car show to support Ernest Righetti High School’s magazine The Legend.

The fundraiser will start at noon and wrap up about 3 p.m. on the ERHS campus, 941 E. Foster Road.

The publication is put together by more than 20 students, and they expect to complete six or seven issues next fall.

Teacher Robert Garcia said he isn’t sure how much money will be raised, but every penny will help keep the publication alive.

“The magazine class is a valuable experience for our young people because it teaches them group work and its importance,’’ Garcia said. “It teaches them that the real world is about deadlines and being able to work with others. You don’t get much done if you are not able to corroborate and cooperate.’‘

The publication features a selection of photographs, sports coverage and even personal perspectives from foreign exchange students. The magazine is a chronicle school activities and is available in print and online. The students’ news gathering efforts have sparked many conversations about way young people dance, parent relationships, having a closed campus and bullying.

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!
