sbTNN needs to raise $6,000 NEWS

BY ELISE CLEMENTS

DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the 2011 Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Christopher Nolan is planted on the red carpet faced by a young reporter and her questions. She asks him about his own dreams and whether they worked their way into â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inception,â&#x20AC;? his latest mindbending, dreamscape film. Nolanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eyes squint and dart smartly and a smile plays at the corners of his mouth as he issues a reply. But perhaps even more amusing than the question asked him is that the reporter, Hailey Sestak, would celebrate her 17th birthday the following day. Sestak, a senior at Santa Barbara High School, is a member of the Santa Barbara Teen News Network (sbTNN.) For a month lead-

ing to the interview Sestak trained relentlessly with her director. During this red carpet moment she also had over two years worth of television training provided by the program. Thanks to all of this, none of which she had to pay for, Sestak was able to interview a high-profile star she personally admires, and deliver it with professionalism she is proud of and will use as she pursues a career in broadcast journalism. But the education and opportunities sbTNN provides may not be available to students in the future. Currently sbTNN is provided free to all students though the Patricia Henley Foundation. But the threeyear-old organization needs $6,000 donated by December

31 to stay on its feet. Following a five-year probation period that is coming to a close, the foundation either needs to boost the amount of money it receives through donations from 31 percent to 33 percent or it will lose its non-profit status. If the program does not receive immediate support from the community, losing this status could jeopardize sbTNNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eligibility for grants and fundraising. It is seeking individual and business sponsors, and if it cannot find a way to stay alive, the money from Henleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donation will run out by the end of next year, terminating the program. For students like Sestak, for which the program has come to mean so much, this is unthinkable. The program has

Cowboys’ Romo to play Sunday

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo expects to play in Sunday's regular season finale against the New York Giants, when the NFC East title will be on the line, despite struggling with a bruised right hand this week. Romo suffered the injury during last Saturday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, when he banged his throwing hand against the helmet of a defender, and was limited in team practice on Wednesday. "It's continuing to improve a little day by day," Romo said on a conference call with New York reporters. "Today was good. I was able to do some things with the ball that we weren't sure about. "It was a good start to the week. We'll continue working on it and getting treatment on it. We'll be good to go this weekend. I expect to play."

Cops make arrests for drugs, downtown fight BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER

Dec. 21, 2:23 a.m.: Officers arrested a man for allegedly cutting his wife with a knife. The couple came back to their motel room after having drinks at a bar and got into a verbal argument. The man allegedly pulled a folding blade knife out from his pocket and cut his wife’s forearm. They got into a “scuffle” and the man dropped the knife. The wife kicked it over to the closet and the man ran away. Police arrested him for assault with a deadly weapon, making criminal threats, and domestic violence when he returned. Dec. 20, 7:10 p.m.: A drug overdose led to two men getting arrested for possessing weapons and stolen street signs. After attending to the overdose victim, who had

been visiting two friends on the 400 block of Alameda Padre Serra, officers went to get the man’s property from one of the rooms. Inside they found a bag of heroin, an expandable baton, several Santa Barbara City street signs, and a magazine for an AR-15 rifle. The 25year-old occupant of the room denied any of the items belonged to him and said they belonged to another friend. That 20-year-old friend admitted to police that the rifle magazine had been given to him, but claimed the street signs had been left by a previous occupant. Police arrested the 20-year-old man for possession of stolen property and the 25-year-old man for drugs and the baton. Dec 18, 3:15 p.m.: Police arrested a 61-year-old man for allegedly stealing liquor and razor blade cartridges. The man allegedly walked

into a Milpas Street drugstore and stuffed a $1.99 bottle of Mickey’s Malt Liquor into his waist band. He then went over to another isle and picked up a package of Gillette Fusion razor cartridges. When he couldn’t get the package open, he allegedly took a pair of scissors from the shelf and cut the package open. He put the cartridges in his pocket and left the store. Staff stopped him outside and retrieved the items. He was arrested and booked into county jail without bail due to a probation violation. Dec. 18, 9:23 p.m.: Officers arrested a 40-year-old man for allegedly fighting a woman on State Street. The woman had been standing on the corner of State and Haley Street when she saw the suspect, who she knew as an acquaintance, approach her. The suspect allegedly grabbed her by the neck and began

Lakers try to recover from slump

With egos badly bruised after losing their first two games of the regular season, the Los Angeles Lakers enjoyed a rare day off on Wednesday having avoided their first 0-3 start since 1978. The 16-time NBA champions were beaten 88-87 by the Chicago Bulls in their season opener then 100-91 by the Sacramento Kings before returning to winning ways with a 9671 romp at home to the Utah Jazz on Tuesday. Three games crammed into three hectic days at least ended on a winning note after many Lakers fans despaired while watching their team squander an 11-point lead against the Bulls and then look worryingly old and slow against the younger, faster Kings.

49ers drop wide receiver Edwards

Wide receiver Braylon Edwards has been released by the San Francisco 49ers after an injury plagued season where he had only 15 receptions in eight games. The former Cleveland Browns and New York Jets receiver injured his right knee in the second game of the season at Dallas. "I was released today by the 49ers due to my injury that required more time to rehab and hasn't allowed me to re-sync with the offense. I wish the 49ers organization the best of luck during the playoffs. I will be working hard this off season to strengthen my knee and prepare for the 2012 season," Edwards said in a statement on his website. Edwards was nearing the end of his one year contract with the 49ers who will now likely look to add a receiver to their roster ahead of Sunday's game at St. Louis where they hope to clinch the second seed in the NFC.

punching her in the body. The woman grabbed the suspect’s groin to get away. When questioned by police, the man claimed the woman had attacked him first. He claimed she’d punched a friend of his earlier that day. He was arrested for battery and booked into county jail on $2,500 bail. Dec. 17, 3:51 p.m.: A traffic stop got two men arrested for drug possession. An officer pulled over a vehicle after seeing an expired registration sticker. The 33year-old driver had a suspended license and no proof of insurance. Both the driver and the 30-year-old passenger had burnt spoons, syringes, and other drug paraphernalia. The passenger advised officers to be careful searching the vehicle because there were several uncapped needles near the car seats. Both men were arrested for possession and booked into county jail.

Creating a new vision for children in 2012 EDUCATION

could form a circle of responsibility around all our children. We could make sure that our efforts are focused on improving the conditions of children in our communities. We also need to acknowledge that working to benefit and nurture our young people is enlightened self-interest. We want what is best for our own children, but we must care about other people’s children as well — after all, it is other people’s children who will staff the emergency rooms, fly the planes, and eventually pass the laws that govern all of us. A joint effort for today’s children could make a real difference in everyone’s future. That is my vision for all of us this coming year. I hope you will all join me as we continue our work to make it a reality.

When a new year gets underway, I feel it’s wise to take stock and share visions for the future, especially for our children Though we seem to be divided on a wide range of issues, it can be helpful to lay out a unifying vision for children in Santa Barbara County that will help direct our efforts locally and make sure our priorities remain in proper focus. No one knows what 2012 will hold. But I believe we can once again agree on a vision that embraces all of the county’s young people. It’s a simple vision, but so important that it bears repeating: In this vision, we continue to see children growing up in good health, with a zest for learning and living. We see them with a spark inside that makes them want to share their talents with those less fortunate, and work for the good of the order, just because it's the right thing to do. We see children who are

free of fear, free of abuse, free of drugs, free of prejudice. We see children who are free to reach beyond their circumstances, whatever those might be, and to join a society that welcomes their contributions on the job, in the community, and in the voting booth. And we see a community willing to work together to bring all our children closer to that dream. It’s a vision that can become reality. If we all work together, and resist the urge to point the fingers of blame, we

Bill Cirone is the Santa Barbara County Superintendent of Schools.

Children in poor urban neighborhoods need more chances for old-fashioned playtime in their daily lives, says a new report from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). A number of experts have raised concerns that children these days have little time for unstructured play -- which, they say, is important for kids' physical and mental develop-

ment. The new report follows another from the AAP a few years ago, which argued that U.S. suburban children are "overscheduled" with formal classes and lessons, leaving them little time for simple play. "That's not the case for poor children," said Dr. Regina M. Milteer, lead author of the new study.

"But they're still not getting free, unstructured playtime," she told Reuters Health in an interview. For poor children, in cities in particular, the problems are a lack of safe places to play, parents who are busy trying to pay for housing and other basics and schools that are cutting out recess and physical education to make more time for academics.

and high-schools throughout Santa Barbara, Goleta, and Carpinteria, take the helm. Though most productions focus on current events and teen lifestyles, the program’s 40 participants have a lot of leeway. A handful of members yesterday gathered to film a short three-minute comedic sketch written by two students: Coby Kaufer, an eighth grader at Santa Barbara Charter, and Aaron Linker, a freshman at Santa Barbara High School. Finished productions are aired about 25 times a week on several local television stations and websites. In addition to their regular weekly productions, sbTNN also has ties with the Santa Barbara Bowl, which allows them free pit tickets to Neederlander concerts such as Jack Johnson and Janet Jackson. When Katy Perry played at Dos Pueblos High School, sbTNN received backstage passes. They have also covered every film festival since they started, scoring interviews with prestigious stars such as Nicole Kidman and Geoffrey Rush. But aside from the shear

fun and productivity the program provides, students are also finding long lasting career direction. Julie Koonce, foster mother of Morgan Dishmon, an aspiring star and sbTNN member, said that the program is helping Morgan figure out what she wants to do. “She keeps asking me: ‘What’s it like to be a bank teller? What’s it like to be a grocery store clerk? What’s it like to be a sales rep?’” said Koonce. “This has given her the opportunity to see what this is like.”

Dishmon, 15, said that she has always dreamed of being a star, and the experiences she had have encouraged her to pursue this dream. She wants any opportunity to be in front of a camera, including newscasting. She is going to trying for a summer KEYT internship. Like others in the program, being a part of sbTNN has also helped give her an outlet during a troubled adolescence. Pending her placement with her current foster parents, Dishmon spent eight

months in Noah’s Anchorage Youth Crisis Center. She said along with cheer leading, sbTNN was her only escape. “As you can imagine, losing this program would not only be sad, but it would take away opportunities for the youth in this community,” said Trixie Geyer, associate director of the Patricia Henley Foundation. “sbTNN has provided countless growth experiences, skill-building, and important connections in the community for the youth who are the future of Santa Barbara.”

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Don't let your emotions get the better of you. Think matters through before you decide to share your thoughts. Not everyone will agree with your plans, and some may even try to stand in your way. Take care of your own interests first. 2 stars

Putting time and effort into something you want to pursue as a moneymaking venture will pay off. 4 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Confess how you feel and what your plans are for the future. This is the perfect time of year to make longterm decisions that can benefit you. Love is in the stars, and planning a romantic evening will pay off. 2 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Emotions will be difficult to contain but will also help you say what needs to be said in order to clear the air. Communication is a must if you want to solve problems, make the necessary alterations and move forward with your life. 3 stars
