/February & March 2002/

Dear Gauchos,

I apologize for missing an issue last month. I have been busy with school,
trying to secure a (meaningful) summer job and planning our wedding.

But good things come to those who wait… for we only found out this weekend
that both the men's and women's UCSB basketball teams have won the Big West
Tournament. This automatically qualifies both teams for the NCAA
championship tourney.

- The men's team (20-10) is 14th-seeded and will face 3rd-seeded Arizona
(22-9) on Thursday. This is the first time since 1990 - those were the days
- that UCSB has qualified for the NCAA tourney.

- The 12th-seeded Lady Gauchos (25-5), boasting the nation's second longest
winning streak at 21 games, is making its sixth-straight appearance at the
Big Dance. They're facing 5th-seeded Louisiana Tech on Friday.

So dig up those groovy blue/yellow UCSB beachcomber shirts and root for the
home team!

Best wishes,

ALISTAIR JEFFS and JOANNA MOREL are proud to announce the birth of LILIAN
VICTORIA JEFFS on Tuesday, Feb. 12th at St. Mary's Hospital, Paddington,
London, England. The labor was long and hard (24+ hours) but mother and daughter endured and greeted each other at 23:43 with midwives, doctors, Juliet (Jo's sister), and Alistair shouting words of encouragement to them.

"Since then, Lilian's adapted to our brave new world with amazing grace and
style. The girls came home to the Maida Vale on Valentine's Day - a
wonderful present for a very proud dad." Alistair writes. "We hope you'll be
able to meet Lilian in the near future. After various shows in the UK,
she'll be touring later this year in California with gigs in San Francisco.
We're also working on getting her to perform at an exclusive London event in
2002 - Alistair & Jo's wedding."

ASHER GARBER has become a local celebrity in Old West Austin for standing up
for his right to walk his dogs Abby and Lopez without a leash in a local
park. Asher was arrested for failure to identify himself to a police
officer, which along with walking dogs off leash, is a Class C misdemeanor.
"BUT, you do not have to identify yourself to a police officer if you
haven't done anything wrong," Asher writes." This is why the case is going Supreme!"

GEOFF GREEN has helped organized a community response to a harrowing crime
that has rocked Santa Barbara:

Clinton Scott Risetter, a 37-year-old Santa Barbara man was killed in a
brutal way because he was gay. Martin Thomas Hartmann has admitted to
dousing Risetter in gasoline last month while Risetter slept and then lit
him on fire because he was gay. Murder, arson charges and hate crimes have
all been filed against Hartmann.

This type of horror is the last thing I would expect to happen in sleepy and
socially liberal Santa Barbara.

"To help us plan the event, could you also please include the following information:
what years did you program, what was your DJ name, what was your show name,
what kind of show was it, did you hold any KCSB leader positions, do you
TENTATIVELY have a guess how many adults and children will attend,

Saki also desperately needs your help in creating an alumni database.
"We have a VERY limited amount of alumni information and we need your help to
fix that. If you are still in contact with any KCSB alum, PLEASE email us
their information so that we can contact them. We want this event to be
great, but we need your help to make it successful. Thanks in advance."
