Episode 041: Susan Jordan for State Assembly

Brass Backbones Indeed

This episode features an election campaign event by Susan Jordan, Democratic candidate for California State Assembly, District 35 (map). The event with 100+ guests was held 14th November 2009 at the Hope Ranch home of Betty Stephens. In this video, Jordan speaks about her biography and readiness for this elected position, along with her accomplishments as an advocate for coastal and consumer protection in California.
__The Statewide Primary election will be held 8th June 2010. Considering that a strong majority of voters in this Assembly District are registered as Democrats, the Democratic Party nomination in the June Primary often is considered a more vigorous and lively contest than the General election held later in November for Democratic versus Republican candidates. For the June 2010 Primary election, Das Williams is the Democratic opponent to Susan Jordan.
__Touting the need for brass backbones in the fortitudinal combat of the State Assembly, speakers featured in this video include: Connie Hannah, long-time community activist and coastal protectionist (in a separate interview); Betty Stephens, host for the event and social and political activist-philanthropist; Susan Rose, former Second District County Supervisor; Sheila Kuehl, former Assemblymember and State Senator; Delaine Eastin, former Assemblymember and State Superintendent of Public Instruction, and Susan Jordan herself.
__The end of this video includes 15 minutes where Susan Jordan responds to questions from the audience, as video content not included in the 28-minute version played on cable TV-17. Photos from the event were recorded by Kyle Woollet. Co-Producer Cathy Murillo recorded the video and co-Producer David Pritchett edited it. An 8-minute excerpt video highlighting Jordan's biographic remarks is at YouTube.

Episode 038: Healthy Business, Healthy People

Multi-Topic Episode
Camp Canine local business, DAWG dog "micro-chipping"
Healthy to the Core rally, Policy Talk with Cathy & David

1. Off-Leash Public Affairs co-producer David Pritchett interviews Mary Sorosky and Jane Sorosky, proprietors of Camp Canine, a homegrown local business for doggie day care on East Montecito Street near Milpas Street in the mixed M-1 zone.

2. Also at Camp Canine, DAWG veteran volunteer Shirley Jansen explains the benefits of "micro-chipping" where a passive integrative transponder (about the size of a rice grain) is injected under the dog skin. A scanner can read the encoded data about the dog with the tag, so naked dogs still can have an identification.

3. The second location in this episode (timecode 7:25 min.) features the Healthy to the Core rally held 28 June 2009 at Plaza De la Guerra, downtown Santa Barbara. This event through Organizing for America promoted the health care reform initiatives of President Obama. Michael Just and other local people spoke to the crowd with their personal testimony on the health care crisis. Local Obama campaign organizer Sherry Holland also described the Obama health care reform effort accelerating in summer 2009. (Facebook photos by Vicki Allen).

4. The third location in this episode (timecode 17:30 min.) features OLPA co-Producers Cathy Murillo and David Pritchett conversing about local effects of the national health care crisis, skateboard parks, and a proposed Public Works Commission that David would want to form after getting elected to Santa Barbara City Council.

Double Feature
MTD Transportation & Opening Day for PONY Baseball

1. Off-Leash Public Affairs co-producer David Pritchett describes community efforts about schedule changes for MTD (Metropolitan Transit District) and how important riding the bus is for anyone who wants to be elected as a Santa Barbara City Councilmember.

Episode 035... Citizen McCaw World Premiere

"What Happened to the Public Trust?"

_To complement the film Citizen McCaw showing on SB Channels TV-21 starting 01 March 2009 (as CraigSmithsBlog reported), Off-Leash Public Affairs is please to be showing our own related production often scheduled for replay on TV-17 just before or after Citizen McCaw replays on TV-21.
_This OLPA episode, Citizen McCaw World Premiere, features interviews about the News-Press-Mess from the crowds ready to see the premiere of Citizen McCaw when that local documentary debuted 07 March 2008 at Arlington Theater and 05 April 2008 at Marjorie Luke Theatre in Santa Barbara.
_To about 15 different interview subjects, OLPA co-Producer David Pritchett asked:
1. What do you think of The Mess?
2. Where do you get your local news?
3. If you could ask the News-Press publisher any question, what would it be?

_The various responses were compelling, insightful, and/or amusing. Edhat was a popular and enthusiastic response as the source of local news, while others like Santa Barbara Daily Sound often were mentioned even though its readers often could not recall its name. That was in March 2008, though.
_People interviewed for this video include: Rod Lathim (Citizen McCaw co-Producer and local community arts magnate), Sara Miller McCune (who reminded assertive OLPA co-Producer Cathy Murillo that a newspaper buyer first needs a willing seller), Al Bonowitz, Josh Molina, Roy Regester, Starshine Roshell, Brian Barnwell, Sander Vanocur, Ann Moore, the unknown comic's brother, the emphatic Shirley, and quite a few others who spoke eloquently but did not state their name or whose name (more likely) was lost in editing.
_ OLPA episode 014 also covered an earlier chapter in the News-Press-Mess when the Teamsters Union prevailed in Federal court, twice. Encore replays of that video from January 2008 also is showing on TV-17 in March 2009, to pile on our Citizen News-Mess Fest.

Watch the Video of this show!!
45:00 minutes, including bonus content (not in the TV 28:30 version) of journalism tutorials from the Citizen McCaw website and the full interview with Rod Lathim)

Episode 034... Nicholas Cavalier: a Story of Hope

In Conversation with Nick's Mother, Faith Magdalena
As the KEYT news story led:
Nick Cavalier, 21, of Santa Barbara seemed to have everything he needed for his young life, plenty of friends, good parents, and a job at the beach. But all of that changed in an instant during a fight on Chapala Street in Santa Barbara six months ago. Cavalier sustained serious brain injuries that night when he tried to break-up a fight between his friend and group of young men.
_This episode of Off-Leash Public Affairs features an interview by OLPA co-Producer Cathy Murillo with Faith Magdalena, determined mother of Nick Cavalier. They discuss what Nick is going through and her hopes for her son.
_This video was recorded 11 Jan. 2009 by co-Producer David Pritchett, on the creaky side deck of Magdalena's home in the Mesa Alta West neighborhood of Santa Barbara.
_Another casualty of the American Health Care Crisis, Nick Cavalier needs some long and expensive specialty therapy. On 05 Feb., his old and new friends held a fundraiser event, with a Facebook page. A fund for contributions under his name has been set up by Santa Barbara Bank and Trust (PO Box 60839, Santa Barbara 93160-0839).
_SB Daily Sound reported on his plight, in addition to opinion essays by Paul Rivas at his Goleta blog and an Independent Voice by Faith Magdalena, which includes some highly lively and illuminating comments there.
UPDATE (10Feb.2009) by Faith Magdalena: "The fundraiser was a great success. So much love and support! We will be planning another one at Deano's hopefully and then a homecoming BBQ at Ledbetter Beach. Nicholas will be entering Sylmar Health and Rehab Center [in Santa Clarita] instead of CNS in Bakersfield. I am very happy with what Sylmar has to offer in that they can help him with his learning how to maneuver with the lack of sight."

Episode 033... Fiddlers' Convention by Rotary Club, Santa Barbara Sunrise

Service above Self
Rotary Club Sunrise grants funds to local non-profit organizations and puts on a great Fiddlers' Convention!
_Since 2001, Rotary Club Santa Barbara Sunrise has put on the annual Old-Time Fiddlers Convention and Festival, held in recent years at Stow House park in Goleta the Good Land. The event is a fundraiser for the separate Foundation for this local Rotary Club, which raises about $10 thousand per year for several small grants to local non-profit organizations doing good work in the Santa Barbara community. They also support international projects, as also shown in this video.
_In this video, between scenes of musical acts and jam sessions during the 37th annual Fiddler's Convention, Off-Leash Public Affairs (OLPA) co-Producer David Pritchett interviews Rotarians Bill Boyd, Dennis Johns, and Gary Jensen, who describe their fun Club and some community grant projects, including the picnic area at lower Elings Park.
_David Pritchett interviewed other grantees, including Joan Esposito and Les Esposito of Dyslexia Awareness & Resource Center; Sara Templeton and high-achiever Girl Scout Sara(h) __ of Girl Scouts of California Central Coast; and Christine Bowman of St. Vincent's, who described their services to local mothers and children.
_Fiddle purveyor Steve Joynes also informs about the brain-building value of school music education and the beer-worthiness of fiddles versus violins. The family of Okie Adams also is honored on the stage for his lifetime of contributions to old-timey music and banjo-making.
_In addition to various pick-up jam sessions shown close up, this video also feature a solo of Danny Boy; Old Time Fiddler Band from Meiners Oaks (Ojai); and homeboys Tom Murray and Rod Rolle of Stiff Pickle Orchestra, who play out the show through the end titles. The lead sponsor for the Fiddler's Convention this year was Duncan-Turner Acoustic Research of Goleta.
_As a companion video, a Short-Leash Subject also was produced and posted at YouTube. This 10:30 minute video features the long version of the interview with the 3 Sunrise Rotarians and some additional Fiddlers' Convention music jams not included in the full-length OLPA video episode.
