SANTA YNEZ, Calif. -

The wife of local fallen firefighter Sean Misner gave birth to a baby boy, named after his Dad.

Amanda Misner welcomed Sean Jaxson Herbert Misner into world on Thursday. He was born weighing six pounds, 15 ounces and was 19 3/4 inches long.  The news was posted Friday on the Sean Misner Memorial Facebook page.

Misner, 26, was a member of the Granite Mountain Hotshots killed battling the Yarnell Hill wildfire in Arizona.  He and 18 of his comrades died in June when they were overrun by the wind-driven blaze.

Misner graduated from Santa Ynez Valley High School in 2005.  He was the nephew of Montecito Fire Protection District Chief Terry McElwee and the grandson of the late Montecito Fire Chief Herb McElwee.

Baby Sean Misner will likely make many trips to the Santa Ynez Valley, where his grandparents still live.

    Meet Axel Rose: Therapy Bunny Helps With Healing

    Visiting Nurse & Hospice Care is making special visits to some of the area's senior care/assisted living homes with their pet therapy bunny, Axel Rose. Axel is a certified pet therapy bunny who participates in VNHC's pet therapy programs for their patients, and they are taking him around to make these special visits to patients before the Easter holiday to spread some love and cheer.

    A visit from a pet often leads to both physical and mental health benefits. VNHC nurses notice lower blood pressure, improved cardiovascular health, lower overall physical pain, and that the act of petting produces an automatic relaxation response, sometimes reducing the amount of medication necessary.
