Santa Barbara, CA - March 14, 2018 /MarketersMedia/ —

California investor Ken Slaught not only dedicates his time to the growth and development of the Santa Barbara community, but also serves various humanitarian causes throughout the county including at the Hospice of Santa Barbara, where he promotes the good work of those who help people at the end of life. As he continues to educate the broader public of the importance of social support, particularly for people who have experienced the loss of their beloved ones, Slaught has recently promoted Hospice of Santa Barbara’s Anticipatory Grief Services program on his blog at KennySlaught.com.

Hospice of Santa Barbara provides a wide range of compassionate care services to individuals facing terminal and chronic illness, as well as to their families. Many of the programs at the organization focus on the needs of children and youth as they struggle with the impending or recent passing of a close family member or friend. About 20 percent of children experience the death of a loved one before they turn 18, and one in 20 children must face the loss of one or both parents before they reach adulthood. Hospice of Santa Barbara endeavors to provide individuals in these situations with free support through a number of programs. This support helps individuals cope with grief to avoid or mitigate depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

Ken Slaught recognizes that both individuals facing death and their loved ones have to deal with anticipatory grief as the unavoidable draws near. He notes an unmatched level of professionalism and compassion that the dedicated staff of Hospice of Santa Barbara has demonstrated to help loved ones and people with terminal illnesses confront and deal with this grief in constructive ways so that they can enjoy their final days together with minimal stress and anxiety. Facing this grief directly can improve communication between loved ones and lay the foundation for saying what needs to be said and achieving a sense of closure, which can ease the grieving process after the loss occurs.

Founder of Investec Real Estate Companies, Ken Slaught has been in the industry for more than four decades. A dedicated investment strategist, he manages more than 3 million square feet of property throughout California. With total transactions valued above $1.2 billion, Investec has grown to become one of Santa Barbara’s leading real estate firms. An avid philanthropist, Mr. Slaught is involved with many non-profit and community organizations, including Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation and the Music Academy of the West. Contributing to the benefit of youth in the area, he dedicates considerable time to these and other worthy causes.

Big Five? Talent-rich Celtics embracing lofty expectations

Sep 25, 2018

CANTON, Mass. — Last summer, new Boston Celtics arrivals Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward beamed just imagining what it would be like to share the court together. Those dreams lasted all of five minutes before Hayward was lost for the season to a gruesome leg injury on the opening night of the season. The Celtics somehow survived it and had set themselves up to make a run at the Eastern Conference title when Irving was lost for the final stretch of the regular season and the playoffs following a pair of knee surgeries. But four months after a season with...

No LeBron, no spotlight: Cavaliers start anew without star

Sep 25, 2018

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — As the Cavaliers wandered around posing for silly photographs, reading radio promotions and doing interviews, everything felt different. This media day was nothing like the past four. Cleveland heads into the season with very little buzz, zero drama and low expectations. The spotlight, which has illuminated the Cavs in recent years, is pointed elsewhere. LeBron James left and it all went with him. "I'm still here," coach Tyronn Lue said, laughing. The Cavs began life without James in earnest on Monday, taking their first steps since the superstar signed with the Los Angeles Lakers this summer and...

With new coach and new arena, Giannis, Bucks are all smiles

Sep 25, 2018

MILWAUKEE — Giannis Antetokounmpo was all smiles but had no jokes. The Milwaukee Bucks' All-Star forward was more business this time around: While he didn't indulge reporters by opening his media day session on Monday with a gag, as he had done in previous years, Antetokounmpo still flashed an infectious grin. Things are looking up for the Milwaukee Bucks as they move into a new arena this fall, with a new coach leading a team headlined by one of the NBA's bright, young stars. The organization once had billboards around the city that read "Own the Future." That future is...

The Latest: Cosby lawyer argues to keep him out of prison

Sep 25, 2018

NORRISTOWN, Pa. — The Latest on Bill Cosby's sentencing hearing (all times local): 3:45 p.m. Bill Cosby's lawyer says the 81-year-old comedian is a poor candidate for prison because he's old, legally blind and dependent on others. Defense lawyer Joseph Green argued at Cosby's sentencing hearing Monday that Cosby would be at risk behind bars. He called prison an "excessive hardship." Green suggested an alternative punishment program would be more appropriate. Court has adjourned for the day. A judge is expected to sentence Cosby on Tuesday. Cosby's lawyer says a psychologist set to testify Tuesday will be the only defense...

Porzingis rehabbing conservatively, unsure when he'll return

Sep 25, 2018

GREENBURGH, N.Y. — Kristaps Porzingis is a one-of-a-kind player, a 7-foot-3 package strong enough to pound in the paint but with plenty of speed and shooting to play on the perimeter. That's ideal for the basketball court. Not so much for rehabbing a serious knee injury. Porzingis said Monday his size has necessitated a slow recovery from a torn left ACL and prevents him or the New York Knicks from establishing a timetable for his return to action. "We've done things differently because there is no protocol for a 7-3 guy," Porzingis said. "There is no timetable for my type...
