SARAH AND SCOUT: You’d never guess that Sarah Sinclair found her new love in a San Diego bar on a Sunday morning, but it’s true. The barkeep had a litter of shiba puppies there, and Sarah and Scout fell in love. And we know why. In the short week our new advertising director has been here, both ad and edit sides have perked up noticeably. Sarah spent “20 and a half” years moving up the sales ladder from classifieds to advertising director at the Santa Barbara News-Press and then moved to, where she rose to president and CEO before it changed hands. She especially likes that The Indy gets involved in so many events, like Wear Red Day this Friday to combat women’s heart disease. “A newspaper is an integral part of the community,” she said. “It can help so many groups and nonprofits publicize events.”
