Tea Fire Direct Relief Video

  |   by admin    Bookmark and Share

Direct Relief International's Brett Williams explains how the organization is supplying Santa Barbara residents with N-95 grade ventilator masks to prevent public health issues due to smoke caused by the Tea Fire. All drug stores in the area are reportedly out of these masks, making Direct Relief one of the sole sources in the fire area.

Huge Fire in Montecito

  |   by test_user    Bookmark and Share

Taken from our roof a few moments ago.. The flames are clearly visible from West of State Street.

 UPDATE:  this post was originally titled ' Huge Fire on Riviera'.. Apparently, the fire is BEHIND the Riviera in Montecito near Coyote and Sycamore Canyon Road.  The flames were so big (not really visible in the photos due to the timed exposures) that they dwarfed the Eucalyptus trees in the foreground.

Barack Obama to be the next President of the United States

  |   by ws1    Bookmark and Share
It seems like only a short time ago that Barack Obama was a long-shot candidate when he visited Santa Barbara City College in 2007. Now he is the President Elect of the United States. Aside from the groundbreaking racial implications, Obama is radically different than past presidents in other important ways. His candor, humility and directness are astonishing in an age where so many are jaded, indirect and pandering. Here is a picture of him last year, taken by Warren Schultheis at the beginning of the primary season. Even then, the crowd was swelling with excitement. Of course, the Jury is still out on Obama. He's certainly got his work cut out for him. But no one can deny the long list of 'firsts' that he has brought to American politics.
