So nice to read that David and Marsha Karpeles are still investing in the area and rebuilding after the debris flow) and to see that Joan Wells is endorsing a candidate. Joan and Supervisor David Yager were helpful in getting my Toro Canyon lot split approved in 1979.
David and Marsha were acquaintances in the 1980-90s. They visited my Toro ranch for a BBQ c 1985, and I once played Dave a couple games of chess — and lost all of them. I heard he was a former president of the Santa Barbara Chess club and held a Master rating. David and Marsha now sponsor the Karpeles Manuscript Library/Museum. Nice folks all of them!
