The Spanish Colonial revival style was started by architect George Washington Smith in California, about 100 years ago. Smith gave up his Harvard studied to work in bond trading. After some years, he moved to Santa Barbara to pursue his hobbies. But, he changed his mind after he noticed the locals loved his work. He went on to create new buildings for the city, and used authentic Spanish materials in his designs. He combined the old with the new, and his structures are admired today for their beauty and complexity. Smith was the inspiration of many new artists and is known as a Santa Barbara founding father. Kenny Slaught recognizes the attention to detail needed to develop such complex structures.

“The professionals at Hospice of Santa Barbara strive to provide the highest level of service to clients by offering effective, cutting-edge therapies,” Kenny Slaught noted on his blog, praising the work of the organization. “Dealing with grief and loss is extremely difficult, but a new therapy has emerged to help individuals through difficult times.” Veterans with PTSD experience overwhelming and painful emotions whenever they remember their past trauma. Those dealing with loss and grief frequently have similar reactions to painful emotional triggers. With EMDR, these negative emotions can be mitigated via the use of dual stimulation—both bilateral eye movements and tones or taps. In therapy sessions, clients recall past traumas in a safe environment while focusing on an external stimulus of the tone or tap. Practitioners then assist clients in finding new insight about the difficult emotions and make more positive associations with current triggers.
The Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation sponsored the Girls Rock Santa Barbara program in 2015. Kenny Slaught sees music as a way to empower teen girls, and believes that the foundation offers a place for kids to boost their self confidence. The program provides music classes, workshops, and the girls also perform live. They are invited to work as a team, be tolerant of each other and challenge traditional gender roles. So, Girls Rock Santa Barbara stays true to the Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation’s mission to make arts available to all.
Santa Barbara’s commitment to charity is the third reason why it has such a strong community, says Kenny Slaught. The city has numerous nonprofit organizations and charities ever since 1928, when the Santa Barbara Foundation was founded. The local nonprofits respond fast to the community’s requests, and minimize the need of involving national foundations.

Santa Barbara is a popular tourist destination, with thousands of tourists visiting each year. The city is famous for its great weather, gorgeous scenery and beautiful architecture.

Property investor Kenny Slaught offered a timeline of historical events in relation to the city’s architecture on his blog at KennySlaught.com.

Coworking online platforms are becoming more popular thanks to the accuracy of data they provide, says Kenny Slaught.
