There is a bigger story here that hasn't yet been covered adequately. As far as I know, there is still no position on the board of the Santa Barbara Certified Farmers Market Association that represents the interests of the citizens of Santa Barbara and local consumers - even though we supply the space for the markets to operate. As the plaintiffs point out, many of the board seats are held by non-local growers who don't represent the interests of small, local farmers or consumers. Something needs to change if we are to realize our goal of providing the best truly local, fresh food to Santa Barbarans. Right now the Farmers Markets are fooling many of us into thinking we're supporting local farmers by buying at the markets, when that's not always the case.

We moved to Santa Barbara from Venice, CA because we couldn't stand the constant police helicopter noise overhead. I agree that the helicopters need to go to Goleta Valley hospital which has an existing airport and flight paths.
