More Like That

Thank you for publishing Paul Relis’s excellent, important story of how Carpinteria Valley agriculture came to be protected back in the ‘70’s. Similar issues are with us still, so it was interesting and instructive to learn about a successful, collaborative effort from the past.

I’m wondering if you plan to run more articles about the environmental movement in those early years when so much was accomplished here. Santa Barbara’s influential role is a source of local pride and interest. I’d love to read more.
