Betrayal Silence Darkness linger, dark clouds transfuse Thunderstorm, raging seas Burning fires, tremors and twisters Lightning zapping, Whirlwind overwhelms Pandemic, Death Brutality, Murder Poverty, hopelessness Injustice everywhere, they cry for justice! Out in the streets Mothers, fathers, brothers, and sisters Children and adults Traumatized, grieving, sadness No justice, No peace! Black Lives Matter! This skin, Matters! Where is empathy? Where is sympathy? Where is equality? Where is justice? Where is leadership? Where is the voice of reason? I hear his voice In my brain, it reverberates That strong voice yearning for equality “There comes a time when silence is betrayal” That voice, Martin Luther King’s reassuring voice! “Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter” “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

Meet the Poet: Kundai Chikowero


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

UNDAI CHIKOWERO IS THE 2021 FIRST PLACE WINNER in the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Essay and Poetry Contest’s Ages 13-18 Poetry Category. A 17 year-old Engineering Academy senior at Dos Pueblos High School, Kundai has won awards in this contest since she was in the seventh grade. Her poem, Betrayal Silence, was inspired by her continued passion for racial justice and equality, as well as the pandemic’s disproportionate impact on the African American community and the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and others. “Poetry activism plays a fundamental role in effecting change in society,” shared Kundai. “As a poet, I observe the injustices and I pour my heart out through my pen. My pen is my sword. I use words and my pen to bring to light the impediments that racist society does not tire throwing on the path of progress. This is one accessible way to sustain the iconic voices of our fighters, such as Martin Luther King, Malcolm X, and others who freed Africa from the clutches of colonialism. Kundai Chikowero To remain silent is to preach a falsehood, namely, that we have attained a society that we are proud of.” Kundai’s passion for activism extends beyond her writing. A member of Youth Making Change for four years and independently organizing school supplies drives for Isla Vista Elementary, she was awarded the Outstanding Youth Leader Award by the City of Santa Barbara in 2018. She has also self-published two books of poetry whose themes explore racial equality, the environment, women’s and individuals from minority backgrounds’ rights, and more. “The destruction of a population that was coercive ‘with whip’ to build this country brought back the transgenerational traumas of Jim Crow back onto my shoulders and psyche, and I could not bottle up the transgenerational mandate to challenge a society that replays its gory founding rituals with relish in unending cycles,” said Chikowero. When injustice is everywhere How can one stay silent and give up? When democracy is on the line How can one stay calm? How, oh, how? When a pandemic ravages your loved ones How can one stay still? When brothers and sisters are hashtags!

Murdered, like it’s 1865! Black codes, The Civil War, Jim Crow, “redemption!” Redlining, gentrification In this raging storm, silence is betrayal Speak up, fight with love, fight for equality! – By Kundai Chikowero

Search for New SB Fire Department Chief Continues


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

Screen Shot Virtual Meeting

OMMUNITY MEMBERS CAN EXPECT A BIG ANNOUNCEMENT for the Santa Barbara Fire Department this spring. Following the retirement of SBFD Chief Eric Nickel this past October, the search for a new chief is ongoing. With applications closing on January 25th, it is projected that a final selection will be made in mid-to-late March. The City of Santa Barbara’s Fire & Police Commission met on January 7th to review the qualities they’re looking for in candidates and the selection process. “We are recruiting from mainly looking toward the western region of the country,” said Lamont Ewell, senior consultant with Ralph Andersen and Associates, which oversees the applicant search. “That does not eliminate people from other parts of the country, but California as you well know has some very unique characteristics, including now yearround fire season.” Ewell further explained that they are looking to present a diverse pool of applicants, especially those with experience and who hold top positions within fire departments. Additional desired qualities include interpersonal skills, honesty, trustworthiness, a positive relationship with labor, and being “politically astute but yet not political.” Applicants are expected to have at minimum a bachelor’s degree. Following this presentation, commission members shared additional aspects they wanted considered. Vice Chair Lizzie Rodriguez emphasized the importance of selecting someone

experienced in working with diverse communities. “Santa Barbara has a large Latino and Spanish-speaking community, student community, and senior community. I think it would be important to have a Fire Chief who is comfortable or has experience working with a diverse community,” said Rodriguez. “Also, homelessness is a critical, complex social issue across the state and particularly in the city of Santa Barbara, so I think it would also be an important factor to consider this in the recruitment process.” As of January 7th, there were 18 candidates. Once applications close, Ewell will assess the applicants until he has a list of six to eight candidates to present to City Administrator Paul Casey. These candidates will then speak with an interview panel, who will consist of fire professionals, a Fire & Police commission representative, representation from the firefighter union, and a general management employee within the city organization. This panel will narrow the list to two or three candidates, who Casey will individually interview. He will then have a closed session with the commission for final input before the selection is made. “It’s worked well, we had a great process for police chief five years ago, we had a great process with Chief Nickel two years ago, and I fully expect us to have a very strong recruitment for fire chief this time as well,” said Casey. John Allman was voted to be the commission’s representative on the interview panel, with Chair John Stedman as an alternate.

Temporary Traffic Control and Striping Changes on Las Positas Road Take Effect


S PROGRESS CONTINUES WITH LAS POSITAS AND MODOC ROADS MULTIUSE PATHWAY PROJECT, temporary traffic control and striping changes have been implemented along Las Positas Road between Modoc Road and Cliff Drive. Having gone into effect January 11th, changes consist of reducing the speed limit to 35 mph and shifting traffic to allow buffer space for construction work to safely operate. Additionally, the northbound bike lane will be temporarily removed in a portion of this area, just north of Cliff Drive. The changes will continue through October 2021. “Drivers must temporarily share the road with cyclists and proceed cautiously within the Las Positas corridor during construction,” reads an announcement from the City of Santa Barbara. When completed, the Las Positas and Modoc Roads Multiuse Pathway will offer a 2.6 mile long path for bicyclists, runners, and pedestrians to safely travel alongside vehicle traffic. A Vision Zero project, funding is primarily provided through Active Transportation Program grant funds, as well as local Measure C funds.


SEEAG Launches SB County Child Wellness Initiative


IDS SHOULDN’T JUST EAT THEIR GREENS, they should also learn about them! according to Students for EcoEducation and Agriculture (SEEAG) which launches its Santa Barbara County Child Wellness Initiative this month. A free program, SEEAG intends to educate and inspire children to eat healthily and locally. “We want to engage students in an interactive, fun way, as we know how hard it can be for young students to be away from their friends and teachers while learning remotely,” said Kathleen Knight, SEEAG Child Wellness Initiative educator and program developer. “Our program encourages kids to use their detective skills to learn about Santa Barbara County’s local agriculture, to engage in thoughtful discussions about healthy eating, and even gets students up and dancing with their classmates and teachers.” Through this program, local third graders will learn about a different crop each month through live, hour long virtual presentations. Specifically, the program will highlight the nutrients and health benefits of Santa Barbara County specialty crops, including strawberries, avocados, broccoli, and more. Students will also learn about how their food grows from being a simple seed to something at their local market, the importance of exercise, and how different fruits and vegetables benefit their bodies.

Mobile COVID-19 Testing Unit Available in SB County; Testing Expanded in Santa Maria and IV

Samuel Klein Appointed New SDRI Chief Scientific Officer


N ORDER TO INCREASE THE AMOUNT OF COVID-19 TESTING THROUGHOUT SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, a mobile testing unit was activated on January 11th. The unit is currently located at CenCal Health in Santa Barbara at 4050 Calle Real, and will operate from 7am to 7pm, Monday through Friday. “I’m grateful that we have an incredible partner like CenCal, who quickly responded to our need for space to host the mobile testing unit,” said Santa Barbara Public Health Director Van Do-Reynoso. “Because of CenCal’s support, we are able expand testing in our community during this very difficult surge in COVID transmission that we now find ourselves in as a community.” The mobile COVID-19 testing unit will remain at this location for at least two weeks following its opening. It will then move to a new location in the county, which is yet to be announced. Additionally, expanded COVID-19 testing is now offered in Santa Maria and Isla Vista. In Santa Maria, testing is now available at the Santa Maria Health Care Center at 2115 Centerpointe Pkwy from 10am to 12pm and 1pm to 3pm, Tuesdays through Fridays. Walk-ins are not permitted — rather, online appointment registration is available the day before each day of testing. These virtual registrations close at 5pm or when all available slots are full. In Isla Vista, testing is now available at the Isla Vista Theater at 960 Embarcadero del Norte, Isla Vista from 12 to 5pm Fridays and Saturdays. This location accepts walk-ins only.


Participating students will also get links to access additional online activities to learn beyond live classes. Ultimately, SEEAG aims to include 1,000 children in this program over the course of 2021, including Title 1 students from low-income backgrounds. The plan is for SEEAG to transition to providing in-person education when students return to school campuses. The program is in the process of fundraising for a Santa Barbara County Farm Fresh Mobile Classroom van, to bring SEEAG educators to schools for hands-on nutritional education and to provide students with fresh produce from local farms. www.seeag.org

With each delivery, students received a Nature Notes activity card, encouraging them to play outside. “One little girl was so elated about our Nature Notes, she was jumping up and down with excitement,” remembered Eisaguirre. NatureTrack’s deliveries helped provide meals to families who were unable to pick up food from the school district’s traditional distribution sites. Students received a journal and a new Nature Notes activity card each week, which listed fun, outdoors activities for them to complete. Going Sue Eisaguirre delivering food forward, NatureTrack will resume delivering meals and Nature Notes starting January 11th. “As long as they need us to deliver, we’ll do it,” said Eisaguirre. For the past ten years, NatureTrack’s goal has been to inspire kids to explore and learn about the natural world around them. In this time, the organization has offered 25,000 free outdoor experiences for local students from elementary through high school. As the ongoing pandemic prevents schools from arranging traditional field trips, it is hoped the Nature Notes will motivate children to keep playing and learning outdoors. NatureTrack is also offering virtual field trips, virtual hikes, and online resources on its website. Courtesy Photo

Applications Open for Ensemble Theatre Company’s Young Playwrights’ Festival


F ALL THE WORLD’S A STAGE, then no one is too young to start writing their own plays. In the spirit of encouraging and supporting young writers, Santa Barbara’s Ensemble Theatre Company is hosting its 4th Annual Young Playwrights’ Festival. Designed for writers aged 13 to 19, applications for this free, four-month long program are open until January 31st. “Responsibility to the story is the thing,” said Brian McDonald, ETC’s Education Director. “And the development of storytellers for the future of the American Theater may be one of the most valuable youth educational programs that Ensemble Theatre Company can offer the Santa Barbara community.” 20 student participants from Santa Barbara County will be selected. Through its three phases, this program guides students through the process of writing their own ten-minute-long play that is then produced and staged with professional directors and actors. The program’s first phase is weekly classroom instruction, with classes covering topics such as the playwriting techniques and the history of American theater, as well as supporting students as they craft their play drafts. Phase two then offers participants individual meetings with a professional playwright mentor as they revise their drafts. In the final phase, students partake in a live casting session with professional actors and collaborate with actors and a theater director to produce a live, staged reading of their play. Students will also have an on-stage discussion with the audience. Due to the pandemic, this year’s program will initially start online. If health guidelines permit, the performances will take place at The New Vic in May 2021. Having received a $19,000 grant from the California Arts Council, the ETC will not charge students any participation fees. “Arts and culture are inextricably linked to our humanity,” said Nashormeh Lindo, California Arts Council Chair. “They serve as a universal touchpoint for understanding and addressing our societal issues— dismantling inequity, healing trauma, reframing justice, inspiring truth and shaping futures. The Council is humbled to support the vital work of Ensemble Theatre Company and its passionate efforts to make a better California for us all.”

Girls Inc. of Carpinteria to Launch New STEM Lab


VER AN ADVOCATE FOR GIRLS PURSUING SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING, AND MATHEMATICS, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria will now create a STEM lab on its Foothill Road campus. Funded by a $75,000 grant from the Avantor Foundation, this lab will encourage and allow more interactive STEM learning experiences for local girls. “Education for girls in science, technology, engineering, and math is paramount at an early age,” said Jamie Collins, Girls Inc. Carpinteria’s Executive Director. “The generous donation from the Avantor Foundation will enable life-changing programs and experiences that have the potential to shape the future of so many young minds. The addition of an on-site stem lab will also enable the Eureka! program to engage teens year-round to STEM, a core component of the program.” Avantor Inc. has also donated KN95 masks for the Girls Inc. of Carpinteria staff, members, and families. Moreover, the Aldrin Family Foundation has donated materials to be used in the new STEM lab, including a 3D lunar model, “giant moon map,” and curriculum about outer space for students. Projected to open in March, the STEM lab will be utilized for all students, especially middle and high school students in the daily Teen Center and Eureka!, a STEM-based college bound program. Girls Inc. will work with its college and business partners to host individuals who will connect STEM activities to various possible college majors and careers. For younger members, the lab will be open for both independent use and research-based programs after school hours. “Before entering Girls Inc., I never imagined I would be interested in a STEM-field career,” said Briana Rodriguez, a Girls Inc. of Carpinteria member. “Girls Inc. has shown me that women can be equally as successful as men in any science field, and they have always addressed the need for more women to be involved in STEM. Girls Inc. explores and introduces us to new STEM activities every day, and it has encouraged and inspired me to become a successful biomedical engineer.” www.girlsinc-carp.org

Super High Tides

Remembering the Montecito Debris Flow After Three Years REMEMBERING THE MONTECITO DEBRIS FLOW - a special ceremony with candles followed by a light display that could be seen for miles, took place Saturday night. 23 died in the weather disaster in 2018. https://keyt.com/news/santa-barbara-s-county/2021/01/09/ live-raising-our-light-evening-of-remembrance-held-for-montecitomudslide-victims/?fbclid=IwAR3d_yIDmjrZhM3n_4fGYEJ_ YVtGqzXeq0Uc27TX3Te1aHB5nviqg7Py7aQ

The week started with the first SUPER HIGH TIDE PERIOD of the year and some dramatic moments along the Santa Barbara County coast. High tides and SLAMMING SURF put on a big Monday morning show along the Santa Barbara Coast. Thankfully we aren’t in the middle of a January storm! BEATING THE HIGH TIDE - Heal the Ocean, Big Green, and Santa Barbara Sheriff’s dept. teamed up to clean abandoned homeless beach camps at the west end of Montecito before the waves washed them all into the ocean.

Building a Harbor Refuge


N A PLEASANT DRIVE LAST SUNDAY TAIL WINDS BLEW ME in the direction of the Andrée Clark Bird Refuge, a peaceful spot huddled between East Beach and the Montecito foothills. A lone biker sat comfortably enjoying the view of ducks congregating on the water and a bevy of seagulls perched on the sand looking for a snack. You might wonder why I chose the Bird Refuge to begin this week’s column and what this restful spot has to do with Santa Barbara’s busy harbor? As it turns out, a whole lot! Community interest in a harbor in Santa Barbara began as far back as the mid-1800’s, just after the Spanish American War. At the time, Santa Barbara was a town of just over 2,300 and accessible only by water or an arduous journey by land. During the 1870’s, though, tourists from the East Coast seeking the mild climate and local hot springs arrived in numbers. Stearns Wharf was completed in 1872 creating better access for commercial trade and boating. With the resulting growth, the city fathers approached Washington for federal funding to develop a harbor and a group of U.S. Army engineers followed to survey the area. They nixed the idea – not once but multiple times – wars and earthquakes notwithstanding. This is where the Bird Refuge, at the time locally known as ‘the salt pond’ – a secluded inland estero with access to the sea – comes into play as the site the city fathers had hoped would be the location of their harbor. This plan was ideal since it would be in keeping with the natural flow of ocean currents and in a protected location. Also in limbo was another suggested harbor location: an off-shore breakwater to the west of Stearns Wharf to protect west facing beaches from the stormy seas. The problem was that the creation of a breakwater to the west would disrupt the flow of ocean currents up and down the coast and initiate an enormous sand build-up. But of course at this point, the entire project stayed on the drafting table …. for almost 60 years!

Harbor VOICE To the rescue in 1925 came Summerland resident Max C. Fleischmann, millionaire heir to the yeast fortune, and the owner of a 218 foot mega-yacht. And by a strange coincidence his floating home away from home, the Haida, had no place to dock! Fleischmann made the city council an offer they couldn’t refuse; $200,000 as a matching fund for the construction of a harbor. At that point, the location of the harbor was of little importance as long as it appeared... somewhere! Ecological considerations were scrapped, as was the Bird Refuge location, and construction began on a 1,200 foot detached jetty west of Stearns Wharf. Soon Fleischmann determined it wasn’t long enough for his yacht and after two more dips into his pocketbook for a total cost of $775,000, the 2,435 foot breakwater that now surrounds the present day harbor was finally completed. And, the Haida was moored! Decisions made in the 1900’s still resonate today. The sand build up forced by the breakwater created what is now Leadbetter Beach, the area upon which the Yacht Club and a good portion of Santa Barbara City College now stand. The interception by the breakwater also caused beach erosion, as the natural flow of currents have been interrupted up and down the coast. The dredging equipment permanently housed at the sand spit in the harbor serves to keep the harbor entrance free of sand – most of the time. Today Santa Barbara’s beautiful harbor, envisioned so long ago, is indeed the jewel in the City’s crown. But it didn’t come without a price. Tipping my hat to the adage that ‘Truth is Stranger than Fiction,’ the thread that links the present Bird Refuge to the harbor still exists. And, as they say, that’s m’story and I’m stickin’ to it!

Economic VOICE Finding the Path to Greater Equality By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE


www. equitablegrowth.org

CONOMIC THEORY IS FINALLY CATCHING UP to political theory in showing policymakers how to right the record income inequality—worst in the developed world—that has plagued working Americans since the 1970s. It is about time, when we have just witnessed one of the consequences of that inequality—the storming of the U.S. Capital by extreme-right terrorists bent on overthrowing our duly-elected government that was in the midst of verifying the electoral victory of President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris. Economists are modernizing New Deal Keynesian economics that brought us out of the Great Depression and World War II, the economics that says government must be part of the solution to today’s problems, including the protection of workers’ rights, the environment, and keeping America strong and prosperous for all Americans, not just the one percent. For instance, a recent MIT research project confirmed that four decades ago, for most U.S. workers, “the trajectory of productivity growth diverged from the trajectory of wage growth. This decoupling had baleful economic and social consequences: low-paid, insecure jobs held by non-college workers; low participation rates in the labor force; weak upward mobility across generations; and festering earnings and employment disparities among races that have not substantially improved in decades.” Much of that divergence was caused by trickle-down economics, a political theory from the Reagan era that rationalized making the wealthy wealthier with the teaser that some of that wealth might trickle down to the 80 percent, which are wage and salary earners that power most economic activity.

January 15, 2021

While new technologies have contributed to these poor results that promote labor-saving AI and robotics, researchers are now saying these outcomes were not an inevitable consequence of technological change, nor of globalization, nor of market forces. Similar pressures from digitalization and globalization affected most industrialized countries, and yet their labor markets fared better. It was, “the decay of unions and collective bargaining, the explicit hardening of business (by the Business Roundtable formed in the 1970s), the popularity of right-to-work laws (mainly in conservative red states), and the fact that the wage lag seems to have begun at about the same time as the Reagan presidency all pointing in the same direction: the share of wages in national value added may have fallen because social bargaining power of labor has diminished,” said the MIT study. And therein lies the solution that only government policymakers and legislators can enact by expanding government healthcare, raising the minimum wage, more progressive taxation, making college education more affordable, and expanding workers’ collective bargaining rights that red state right-to-worker laws have drastically curtailed. This list of economic can-dos has been obvious to any professional economist that has not been defending the one percent’s right to most of the wealth created by working Americans. Free market ideologies have held sway for the past 40 years—not based on empirical research—that advocated unfettered economic growth by any means, and enshrined maximized profits as the greatest good, while ignoring business ethics and a morality that promotes caring for our brothers and sisters. The economic disparities are growing due to the pandemic, as I reported earlier. In April, nearly 12 million low-wage workers were laid off, while some six million workers who were earning between $18 to $29 an hour were laid off. By November, all but 400,000 of those workers earning $18 to $29 an hour had returned to work, Raj Chetty, a Harvard economics professor, has said. Meanwhile, some six million workers who earned less than $13 an hour have yet to return to work. Now the coronavirus pandemic has reinforced the need for an economic science that recognizes we are all in this together. As many have said before now, we are poorer if we ignore the plight of the poorest.

ROPOSITION 19 WAS APPROVED in November of 2020. Its goal is to give seniors, people with disabilities, and victims of disaster the ability to take their current property tax assessments with them when they move within California. Previously, only 11 of the state’s 58 counties had opted in to the property tax portability laws that allowed an owner to sell their property in one county and move to another and take their tax assessment with them as long as the replacement property didn’t exceed the value of the relinquished property. This was helpful for seniors looking to downsize or move closer to family without seeing a huge increase to their property tax bill. It also allowed a property to come to market that might not have otherwise. The intent of Proposition 19 was to expand this to all 58 counties in the state. It also expanded the opportunities from just seniors to those with disabilities and those impacted by fires and other Brian Johnson, disasters. These were all positive outcomes for SBAOR President portions of our society that could be most at risk from new property tax assessments when they move. In order to pay for this measure there were changes to the inheritance laws for real estate. One big change was the closure of the “Lebowski Loophole.” This is in reference to the inheritance rules in California that allowed parents or grandparents to pass on a property to their children or grandchildren after their death and the property would not be reassessed for tax purposes. A 2018 Los Angeles Times article reported on how Jeff Bridges, the actor famous for The Big Lebowski and his siblings were benefiting from this by paying only $5,700 per year in property taxes on an ocean side home in Malibu that his parents bought in the 1950s while renting it out for $15,000 per month. Mr. Bridges did nothing different from thousands of other Californians who utilized the same law in the same way to benefit their children or grandchildren but because of the circumstances his situation became fodder for the Legislature to look to overturn these rules. After the failure of Prop 5, a similar effort to allow for property tax portability in 2019, the authors realized that the state was going to go after these loopholes and if they could work with state legislators and other groups they could try and salvage as much of the inheritance protections they could while giving seniors and others the much needed tax portability that would benefit them and increase the supply of housing for all Californians. Thus, the compromise of Prop 19 was born. The inheritance rules were changed so that a primary residence could be passed down, but it would have to remain the primary residence of a child or grandchild and there would be no reassessment on the first $1 million of current assessed value. So if a parent bought the house for $500,000 and it was now worth $1.5 million, the house would not be reassessed. The exemptions for rental or investment properties were removed altogether so those would now be reassessed upon the transfer. Additionally, the proceeds from Proposition 19 are set to go into a fund that is to support fighting fires around the state. Now the question becomes, “What can I do to protect my real estate investments for my children or grandchildren?” There are avenues out there that should be investigated. They include making gifts now to your children or setting up the properties into entities that would allow for them to transfer upon the death of a parent to a child without more than a 50 percent change in ownership. These options and others should be considered in consultation with your attorney, CPA, and real estate professional. Everyone’s situation will be different and there’s no one cookie cutter solution. There will be tax implications not just for property taxes but for income taxes and capital gains. However, by working with your trusted advisors you can protect your family and investments for generations to come.

Fluoride to the Rescue? In Michelle O’Malley’s lab, a simple approach suggests a big leap forward in addressing the challenge of antibiotic-resistant bacteria

Photo courtesy of UC Santa Barbara


Yoo explained that the role of the fluoride transporters had only recently been elucidated, in 2013, when this project began. Emerging approaches to implementing biocontainment have focused on using biological parts that are foreign to the organism of interest, shifting focus toward what Yoo described as “brilliant, yet complex, systems,” while perhaps diverting attention from this simpler approach. ey

CIENTISTS HAVE LONG BEEN AWARE OF THE DANGEROUS OVERUSE OF ANTIBIOTICS and the increasing number of antibioticresistant microbes that have resulted. While over-prescription of antibiotics for medicinal use has unsettling implications for human health, so too does the increasing presence of antibiotics in the natural environment. The latter may stem from the improper disposal of medicines, but also from the biotechnology field, which has depended on antibiotics as a selection device in the lab. “In biotech, we have for a long time relied on antibiotic and chemical selections to kill cells that we don’t want to grow,” said UC Santa Barbara chemical engineer Michelle O’Malley. “If we have a genetically engineered cell and want to get only that cell to grow among a population of cells, we give it an antibiotic resistance gene. The introduction of an antibiotic will kill all the cells that are not genetically engineered and allow only the ones we want — the genetically modified organisms [GMOs] — to survive. However, many organisms have evolved the means to get around our antibiotics, and they are a growing problem in both the biotech world and in the natural environment. The issue of antibiotic resistance is a grand challenge of our time, one that is only growing in its importance.” Further, GMOs come with a containment issue. “If that GMO were to get out of the lab and successfully replicate in the environment, you could not predict what traits it would introduce into the natural biological world,” O’Malley explained. “With the advent of synthetic biology, there is increasingly a risk that things we’re engineering in Michelle O’Malley the lab could escape and proliferate into ecosystems where they don’t belong.” Now, research conducted in O’Malley’s lab and published in the journal Nature Communications describes a simple method to address both the overuse of antibiotics, as well as containment of GMOs. It calls for replacing antibiotics in the lab with fluoride. O’Malley described fluoride as “a pretty benign chemical that is abundant in the world, including in groundwater.” But, she notes, it is also toxic to microorganisms, which have evolved a gene that encodes a fluoride exporter that protects cells by removing fluoride encountered in the natural environment. The paper describes a process developed by Justin Yoo, a former graduate student researcher in O’Malley’s lab. It uses a common technique called homologous recombination to render non-functional the gene in a GMO that encodes a fluoride exporter, so the cell can no longer produce it. Such a cell would still thrive in the lab, where fluoride-free distilled water is normally used, but if it escaped into the natural environment, it would die as soon as it encountered fluoride, thus preventing propagation. Prior to this research, Yoo was collaborating with the paper’s co-author Susanna Seppala, a project scientist in O’Malley’s lab, in an effort to use yeast to characterize fluoride transport proteins that Seppala had identified in anaerobic fungi. A first step in this project was for Yoo to remove native yeast fluoride transporters. Shortly after generating the knockout yeast strain, Yoo attended a synthetic biology conference where he heard a talk on a novel biocontainment mechanism intended to prevent genetically modified E. coli bacteria from escaping lab environments. At that talk, he recalled, “I realized that the knockout yeast strain I had generated could potentially act as an effective biocontainment platform for yeast.” “Essentially, what Justin did was to create a series of DNA instructions you can give to cells that will enable them to survive when fluoride is around,” O’Malley said. “Normally, if I wanted to select for a genetically engineered cell in the lab, I’d make a plasmid [a genetic structure in a cell, typically a small circular DNA strand, that can replicate independently of the chromosomes] that had an antibiotic resistance marker so that it would survive if an antibiotic was around. Justin is replacing that with the gene for these fluoride exporters.” The method, which O’Malley characterized as “low-hanging fruit — Justin did all of these studies in about a month,” also addresses a simple economic limitation to antibiotic-driven cell selection in biotechnology labs. Aside from fueling the rise of resistant strains of bacteria, she continued, “from a biotech standpoint, the process of creating antibiotic-resistant organisms is also pretty darn expensive. If you were going to run a ten-thousand-liter fermentation, and it may cost you thousands of dollars per fermentation to add some antibiotics, that’s a crazy amount of money.” Notably, using fluoride at a low concentration would cost only about four cents per liter. Clearly, said Seppala, “we’d much rather use a chemical like fluoride that’s relatively benign, abundant, and cheap, and can be used to do the same thing that is achieved using a conventional antibiotic.”

ANTA BARBARA VISUAL ARTISTS WERE EAGER TO SPRING INTO THE NEW YEAR and have launched a virtual Spring art exhibition to demonstrate it. One of the first local arts groups to adapt to restricted inperson viewing venues due to the pandemic, SBVA also put together a “Meet the Artists” event to go along with the exhibition that took place on Thursday, January 14th called “Spring Forward Into 2021.” (Zoom, 4pm PST Contact JanBakerArtist@gmail.com for Zoom info). The event will be posted on SBVA’s website and available for visitors to learn about the creators of the work they find on the site. The Meet the Artist event also included music by Pat Hamilton, a singer, songwriter, and guitarist from Vail, Colorado and her performance will also be part of the interview stream. Besides performing original songs, Hamilton covers folk, country, light jazz and rock, ranging from Lucinda Williams to Norah Jones to the Grateful Dead to Johnny Cash. SBVA Spring Virtual Exhibition Artists include: Jan Baker, Carol North Dixon, Elizabeth U Flanagan, Mary Freericks, Karen Frishman, Carissa Luminess, Rebecca Marder, Hepzibah Michaels, Dee Faia Parkins, Robert Voorhees,Jr, Debbie Watts, and Felice Willat. SBVA is an active arts group. Their non-pandemic schedule, in addition to “creating personal and original works of art,” includes three Social Mixer/Meetings per year and participating in three Displays/Receptions per year in venues such as: SBVA Gallery @ 1019 State Street Pop Up, Santa Barbara Tennis Club, Faulkner Gallery, and more. They also plan museum and gallery tours, master workshops, and members paint together. “We also encourage artists to participate in other worthwhile greater Santa Barbara area associations with a long history of encouraging and supporting local artists,” Jan Baker, their president noted, adding, “It is our intention to promote art and artists as well as to help support other social and charitable endeavors in the www.sbvisualartists.com Santa Barbara Community.”
