Will there be a new sheriff in town? 10 MIN, 12 SEC

Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown is up for re-election, and two lieutenants have stepped up to challenge him. This week, the Deputy Sheriffs’ Association voted to endorse one of Brown’s competitors, Lt. Brian Olmstead, citing low morale and staffing issues as the main reasons for the union’s call for change.

Guests:
Matt McFarlin, Sheriff deputy and member of the Santa Barbara County Deputy Sheriffs’ Association

ICE audits on California farms 7 MIN, 22 SEC

Last month, federal immigration agents served several farms and packing houses in the Central Valley with notices that they would be conducting I-9 audits, according to a Fresno-based agriculture advocacy group. Undocumented immigrants often use a fake social security numbers when filling out I-9 forms, which are used to prove you’re a U.S. citizen or are legally allowed to work in the country. Could work-site audits hit the Central Coast next, and what would that mean for local growers?

Guests:
Robert Roy, Attorney with the Ventura County Agricultural Association

Stories of early California, through the eyes of women 8 MIN, 30 SEC

To celebrate Women’s History Month, the Santa Barbara Historical Museum has been putting on a slew of events to remember the women who helped make the Central Coast region what it is today. In Testimonios: Early California Through the Eyes of Women, authors Rose Marie Beebe and Robert Senkewicz transcribed, translated and edited thirteen firsthand accounts from women growing up in the early 1800s, when California was still part of Spain and Mexico. They share the story of a Mexican orphan who found her way to Santa Barbara and became one of the first female landowners in California.

Guests:
Rose Marie Beebe, Author and professor at Santa Clara University
