The City of Goleta is making major strides in increasing pedestrian crossing safety on major roads, especially near local schools. Goleta is in the process of installing enhanced crosswalks near schools at the intersections of Cathedral Oaks Road and Brandon Drive, Evergreen Drive, and Carlo Drive.

Montecito’s Market

If you are moving to Montecito, you are likely doing so for a specific reason or for a few. We arrived 20 years ago to raise our daughter here, among the many generations of family we had in the area at the time, and so we could reset from city life to a more chill, yet high energy and vibrant community. We found all that and more. Our time with our daughter in the 2000s at Montecito Union School was amazing, often referred to as time in the Montecito Bubble. But it is not really a bubble, it was (and still is) just a safe and beautiful, easy to navigate day-to-day environment with others who appreciate their good fortune in settling here in Montecito, all trying to maintain a community we can be proud of.

LA, Ventura gun shop closures unconstitutional

A federal court says an order that closed gun stores in L-A County in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic was unconstitutional. In its ruling, a three-judge panel on the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals says that both L-A and Ventura counties violated the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms when they shut down gun and ammunition shops in March 2020. At the time, they were labeled as nonessential businesses as the pandemic began. This decision reverses a lower court ruling. Not clear if it will be appealed.
