  • Montecito Journal
    • The Montecito Journal - In the summer of 1995, a new and unusual community newspaper made its first appearance. That first issue of “Gold Coast Journal, Montecito’s hometown newspaper” featured 16 pages and no advertising, but was chockfull of local news, something that Montecito had been without for over a year. The second issue, we became “Montecito Journal”, and have enjoyed decades (and counting) of publishing success. Beginning with 5,000 copies once a month, the Journal has grown to 12,000 every week: remarkable in a community with only 10,000 residents.
