A BIG congratulations to Hillary Hauser and Heal the Ocean for working hard to remove the septic systems from Rincon Point, South Santa Barbara County and North Ventura County.

Hillary Hauser and Jeff Young created Heal the Ocean in 1998 for this extremely important environmental project. For the past 15 years, Heal the Ocean has fought through countless lawsuits in order to make the impossible happen.

The press release that was released yesterday notes just how important this project was to the community. It states, “Surfers, who had asked Hauser to start the campaign and who had complained for years about getting illnesses from surfing the world class Rincon Point, held fundraising surf contests to raise money for the cause, and much funding came through HTO donors and finally, the Rincon homeowners themselves.” Hauser also said, “This road has been so long and hard that at our Board meeting tonight, we all looked at each other and said, ‘Can this really be over?’”

There will be a hearing for the Board of Supervisors as well as the CSD Board of Directors on May 7 at 5pm at the District Hearing Room at 5300 6th Street, Carpinteria.

Another CONGRATULATIONS to Hillary, Heal the Ocean and everyone who has helped push this project forward!

The Ocean is one of the Earth’s most valuable resources. It provides 99% of the Earth’s living space, and is the largest known habitat for living organisms in our universe. The Ocean carries more than 90% of global trade between countries, and fish supply the greatest amount of protein consumed by the World’s population. It is important for us to care for the environment and the Ocean is the biggest part of it. Heal The Ocean is a Santa Barbara based non-profit organization that serves to protect the Ocean from pollution and mistreatment. In their mission Heal The Ocean (HTO) states “Heal the Ocean focuses on wastewater infrastructure – sewers and septic systems – as well as ocean dumping practices that contributed to ocean pollution. We are focused on Santa Barbara County, but our methods are now serving as a model for other coastal communities across the country.”

Slightly Stoopid has had a long and successful career and they have never forgotten to give back.  They have been ambassadors for I Went Hungry by donating to their cause and more recently they are heading down to Florida to show their support for Save My Oceans.

This is from their newsletter:

On Saturday March 27, Slightly Stoopid is heading south to Gainesville, FL to play a special show at The University of FL on Flavet Field, brought to you by Save My Oceans. This show is FREE and open to the public! Our boy G. Love & Special Sauce will kick off the show.

The SAVE MY OCEANS TOUR is part of Participant Media’s Social Action campaign for OCEANS, which recently launched online at, and is designed to provide information about the various issues currently affecting our oceans as well as solutions and actions that people can take every day, from supporting national oceans policy to modifications in the types of fish they eat or household cleaning products they use.

We at Oniracom have had a long partnership with Heal The Ocean and like to partner with like minded people, groups and organizations so its great to see our clients Silverback Mangement (Slightly Stoopid) and G. Love and Special Sauce backing this great cause.
