to Welcome Ten Oscar-Nominees


Stars Include Cate Blanchett, Brendan Fraser, Austin Butler, and More


ALIGHT with Hollywood’s best and brightest stars when the Santa Barbara International Film Festival welcomes ten of this year’s Academy Award nominated actors to discuss their careers and 2022 performances.

With more festival honorees and attendees still to be announced, including the Outstanding Directors of the Year Award, Tuesday’s Oscar buzz has only heightened community members’ excitement for SBIFF’s 38th year.

Four of the five Actress in a Supporting Role nominees will be in attendance, beginning with Angela Bassett. Nominated for her regal performance as Queen Ramonda in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Bassett will receive the Montecito Award on February 9th. Jamie Lee Curtis, who wowed audiences with her multifaceted frumpy character in Everything Everywhere All at Once, will discuss this nominated role and her career when she accepts SBIFF’s Maltin Modern Master Award on February 11th. Her Everything Everywhere All at Once costar, Stephanie Hsu, will join Kerry Condon of comedy-drama The Banshees of Inisherin for the Virtuosos Award on February 15th.

The incomparable Cate Blanchett, nominated for Actress in a Leading Role, will be honored with SBIFF’s Outstanding Performer of the Year award on February 10th. Blanchett, who has starred in blockbuster films such as Thor: Ragnarok as well as dramas such as Nightmare Alley, demonstrated her full range with a showstopping performance in Tár, following the

downfall of a classical composer.

Actor in a Leading Role nominees include Brendan Fraser, who has triumphantly returned to the silver screen with his emotional performance in The Whale. Fraser will discuss his career from The Mummy franchise to The Whale when he accepts the American Riviera Award on February 14th. The next night, Austin Butler, who is nominated for embodying “The King” in director Baz Luhrmann’s glamorous musical biopic Elvis, will be included among Virtuosos Awardees. Colin Farrell, who is nominated for his portrayal of a well-intentioned but oblivious friend in The Banshees of Inisherin will receive the Cinema Vanguard Award on February 16th.

Farrell’s co-star, Brendan Gleeson, has also earned an Oscar nod with his Actor in a Supporting Role nomination for playing a gruff, uncompromising Irish man in The Banshees of Inisherin. He will receive the Cinema Vanguard Award with Farrell. The festival’s Virtuosos Award will also welcome actor Ke Huy Quan, who has been nominated for Actor in a Supporting Role for his wistful and caring performance in Everything Everywhere All at Once

Beyond SBIFF actor tributes, local elementary school students will have the rare opportunity to speak with Academy Awardnominated director Guillermo del Toro, who will be screening his animated Pinocchio as a part of SBIFF’s Mike’s Field Trip to the Movies educational program.

THE VOICES, IMAGINATION, AND ARTISTIC VISION of the rising generation of filmmakers will be on full display once again when the 38th Santa Barbara International Film Festival screens the student-produced films of its 10-10-10 Screenwriting and Filmmaking Mentorship and Competition.

Unique for its equal emphasis on supporting individual creativity while offering technical instruction, the 10-10-10 program offers twenty local high school and college students the rare opportunity to write, direct, and ultimately debut their original short films at the Arlington Theatre. Community members will be able to view this year’s 10-10-10 films during a special screening event from 2pm to 4pm on Saturday, February 18th.

“Education is at the heart of everything

SBIFF does and the 10-10-10 program is a fantastic example of how we want to educate and inspire future writers and directors,” said SBIFF Education Manager Claire Waterhouse. “1010-10 is special because it spans the entire range of filmmaking from the pitching of a story idea all the way to post-production, all while under the guidance of an incredible array of industry professionals ranging from writing and directing mentors to producing, casting, cinematography, visual effects, and sound professionals.”

A five months-long program, 10-10-10 actively supports young filmmakers by taking twenty Santa Barbara County students — ten high school and ten college — to produce ten films. Students apply to participate either as a screenwriter or a director, with writers partnering with directors to create their own films.

The result is a series of topical, original films that reflect issues at the forefront of young people’s minds. The majority of this year’s films discuss climate change and environmentalism, including many stories set in dystopian and post-apocalyptic worlds. Other films review themes such as consumerism, self-reflection, friendship, activism, love, and more.

“We've been so impressed by the writers and directors in this year's 10-10-10 class,” said Waterhouse. “They have been incredibly creative and hardworking, and it's been a pleasure for us to watch their stories come to life.”

Students’ creative goals are realized with the mentorship of film industry professionals, who provide guidance and key insights into the filmmaking business through both one-on-one meetings and larger group workshops.

2023 marked the first year that 10-10-10 alumni have returned in the role of industry mentors, providing aspiring filmmakers the same support they once received as students.

“The 10-10-10 program is inspiring and valuable for future writers and filmmakers because it gives them a confidence in their voice and in the stories they want to tell,” shared Waterhouse. “We are so fortunate to have such incredible film industry mentors who support our students throughout this process and give them the encouragement to pursue their dreams as well as the guidance and expertise on how to tell their stories.” 10-10-10 screenwriters include: Olivia Miller (San Marcos HS), Siena Kelly (Santa Barbara HS), Leyla Bultan (Dos Pueblos HS), Sofia Parisotto (Bishop Garcia Diego HS), Sarah Conviser (San Marcos HS), Shane Rockenstein Carlson (UCSB), Zhen Smalls (SBCC), Caleb Cavazos (UCSB), Alexander ‘Zane’ Stull (SBCC), and Joseph Buzzella (UCSB).

The 2023 filmmakers: Siena Kelly (Santa Barbara HS), Maddox Henry (Oak Park Independent School), Malcolm Tircuit (Santa Barbara HS), Sheena Rock (Santa Barbara HS), Bodhi Etz (Santa Barbara HS), Lauren Bartling (SBCC), Joseph Buzzella (UCSB), Nicholas Vinan (SBCC), Asiana Weddington (SBCC), and Alejandro Flores (UCSB).

IN A KEY, EARLY SCENE in Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, Queen Ramonda takes the floor of the United Nations to assert her country’s resilience and strength despite the death of King T’Challa, and to defend their refusal to share vibranium, a rare and powerful metal, with the rest of the world.

Overseeing the proceedings with a careful — and somehow familiar — gaze is a distinguished gentleman known on screen as, simply, Assembly Chairperson. Off screen and around UC Santa Barbara, that gentleman is known as Gerardo.

That’s Gerardo Aldana, a professor of Chicana/o Studies, who came into the small role by way of a huge one: serving as a consultant on the film, which vibrantly depicts Mayan and Mesoamerican culture. Of which Aldana is a leading expert.

Aldana speaks about his research, and his experience working on the project, in an interview with writer Ta-Nehisi Coates for the new podcast (https://www.marvel.com/watch/digital-series/wakandaforever-the-official-black-panther-podcast) Wakanda Forever: The Official Black Panther Podcast, which debuted Wednesday, Jan. 18th.

“I have no idea how they found me,” Aldana recalled, laughing, of the email he received “completely out of the blue” in 2020, asking if he’d be interested in consulting on Maya culture for a movie. Initially nervous and non-committal — that first outreach was scant on details — his worries evaporated quickly.

For two years, from pre-production to premier (and undercover — he signed a nondisclosure agreement when he took the gig), Aldana worked with director Ryan Coogler and his team. Bringing his knowledge of Mesoamerican culture, he helped to refine the script, consulted on character development and informed wardrobe and set design for the filmmakers’ reimagining of Atlantis as Talokan, an underwater civilization descended from ancient Maya.

“They had already set the standard with Wakanda, drawing from African culture and creating something people could grab on to and be emotionally invested in,” Aldana said. “With this new version of Atlantis, Ryan told me he wanted to explore themes that are culturally specific with Indigenous communities — migration, having to uproot, those are huge.”

“So it was, ‘Tell me about Mesoamerican religions, tell me about Mesoamerican culture’ — just a massive dump of information at first,” he recounted. “Then we got more strategic: ‘We have this idea – how would it translate into a Mesoamerican space?’ They were very much about deep diving into it and making sure everything makes sense.”

Coogler’s commitment to representing indigeneity — and his dedication to doing so accurately — extended to the film’s producers, art directors, designers, props, and wardrobe teams, Aldana said. He met with most of them at some point.

“So much of it was sharing content, which was a rich experience,” he said. “But so much also was how they’re selecting the content and figuring out how to translate it for film, moving academic stuff into a completely different medium. It felt like an incredible collaboration that I have not had in the academy. It was creative, generative, amazing.”

Aldana gets major props himself from Coogler, who spoke of the scholar’s impact in press materials for the film.

“We were, thankfully, introduced to Dr. Gerardo Aldana, who’s a professor of history and this is his field,” Coogler states. “He was an incredible guide for us in terms of turning us onto any kind of knowledge or literature that would be helpful, and in helping to supervise all of our prep phase in terms of the costumes and the production on design and the language. I think there’s seven languages spoken in the film, Yucatec Mayan being a major one. He’s somebody who has both worked with modern Mayan communities and reads and writes glyphs.

“All these things work themselves into the film, and the more we got into it, the more we realized it was meant to be,” continues the director. “These cultures were very closely related and also different in ways that are really cool. I’m forever indebted to Dr. Aldana and the performers of Mayan origin who we worked with. We wanted to recognize that there are so many Mayan communities in Mexico, Central America, and here in the U.S., even though they are often times misrepresented as a people that don’t exist anymore.”

As an academic, Aldana said, seeing his research translated to the silver screen — accurately, and in a massive Marvel blockbuster, no less — was deeply gratifying.

“In being accurate, everything in the film is a portal to learn more about ancient Maya culture, and I couldn’t be more grateful that is the approach they ended up taking,” he said. “This is a way to inspire new curiosity. There seems to be this movement on social media where folks are saying they’re so moved by the representation of Indigenous and Maya people and the language and the artwork. That’s powerful. This film is saying ‘look at the artistry, the science, the possibilities, the robustness of this culture.’”

Several months into the collaboration, which until then had been facilitated by Zoom, Aldana got some analog facetime with not only Coogler and crew, but with Queen Ramonda herself, when he was invited to film a scene with Angela Bassett.

“When they said, ‘Hey, we want to invite you to have a small on-screen appearance,’ I thought, ‘Oh my god, this is insane,’” he

recalled. “But at the same time there is no way I could say no. They flew me to Atlanta, to Tyler Perry Studios, and it was during COVID, so there were lots of protocols. To be on set with Angela Bassett, she is such a powerful presence. I mean, she is an actual queen. The experience was fantastic.”

Now about that premier.

This being Wakanda, it was a purple carpet rather than red, and yes, Aldana attended. His plus-one was his daughter, Seri, beside whom he binged every Marvel movie during the pandemic without ever revealing just why he was so keen to view the entire canon.

“I signed that NDA so I never told anyone anything about this, the entire time,” Aldana said. “The first she knew about it was when I took her to the premier in Hollywood, which was so much fun.”

With Hollywood’s award season in full swing and Wakanda Forever stockpiling industry accolades — Bassett just won a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Queen Ramonda — it begs the question: If Oscar comes calling, could Aldana attend the ceremony? Would he?

“This is already way more than I could possibly have expected,” he demurred. “I mean, I still don’t even know how they found me. I’m just very grateful to have been a part of it. This is a special film.”

CALLING ALL GREEN THUMBS! Learn how to grow a plant from seed to harvest and meet neighborhood growers when the Santa Barbara Permaculture Network (SBPN) hosts its free, 15th annual Seed Swap on Saturday, Janaury 29th. Gardeners of all levels are welcome to discover how to grow their own food, the power of seeds, and help ensure that their community has access to fresh, high-quality produce for years to come.

“The magic of seeds, they are our past, they are our future,” said Margie Bushman, SBPN co-founder. “Like a small computer chip, they are tiny, but they contain vast amounts of information, the blueprint for life.”

Scheduled from 11am to 4pm at the SB Community Arts Workshop at 631 Garden St., the SBPN Seed Swap will feature exhibits, speakers, beekeepers, live music, activities for children, and more. Visitors will also receive free seeds so they can start their own gardens and return in 2024 to swap the seeds they’ve grown over the year.

For individuals wanting to grow produce that will be delicious season after season, seeds available in stores might not be their best option. SBPN’s Seed Swap will focus on heirloom seeds, which are plants from seed varieties that are from a documented lineage that is at least 50 years old. Heirloom seeds also are capable of producing year after year with the same results. Seeds that can be found in stores are most often hybrid or GMO variety seeds, which cannot guarantee consistent quality if gardeners decide to replant them.

“Seed saving is the most permaculture

thing you can do, and an antidote to GMO’s and commercially produced seeds, [that is] do-able in our own backyards,” said Bushman.

In a place like Santa Barbara, where each neighborhood has its own microclimate, plants are always evolving and adapting to their surroundings, encoding this information into their seeds. A plant that was grown in the cool, cloudy Mesa area wouldn’t be as adapted to the warm, dry San Roque neighborhood. Like humans, plants also pass along specific traits to their offspring, and seed swapping ensures that the seeds you use have a successful history of producing fruits and vegetables.

“Seed swapping is about engaging your community, sharing seeds with friends, neighbors and exchanging knowledge & ideas,” shared Bushman

Food is a gift from the land around us, and saving and protecting the plants that community members eat is a remarkable way to honor that relationship. It’s also a great way to meet more experienced growers and gain tips and information to realize gardening success.

Hammett’s Masterpiece: The Maltese Falcon

Hammett’s Granddaughter to Host Special SBMA Event

IT’S THE “STUFF THAT DREAMS ARE MADE OF” — a fast-talking detective, a savvy femme fatale, calculative gangsters, and a treasure that eludes even those who murder for it. For over 90 years, Dashiell Hammett’s The Maltese Falcon has served as a gold standard of American crime detective stories.

Now, locals will celebrate this novel and director John Huston’s film adaptation when the Santa Barbara Museum of Art presents From Page to Silver Screen: The Maltese Falcon at 1:30pm on Saturday, January 28th.

Leading the event will be Hammett’s granddaughter, Julie M. Rivett, who will discuss her grandfather, the film, and her favorite Hammett novel.

“I would say The Falcon is my favorite, and part of that is because I see so much of my grandfather in it,” Rivett told VOICE

A self-proclaimed “Hammett scholar,” Rivett has researched her grandfather’s work for over 20 years. Meeting Hammett only once when she was

three years old, Rivett grew up viewing him as a mysterious figure residing in the shadows of her family’s history.

This fascination developed into steadfast appreciation, motivating her to maintain Hammett’s legacy and help readers understand the man behind The Thin Man, The Maltese Falcon, and other classics.

“It’s an honor and a responsibility and something that honestly has become very close to my heart,” shared Rivett.

Beyond his novels, most Hammett fans know two details about his life: that he was an operative for the Pinkerton National Detective Agency, and that he was blacklisted during McCarthyism.

Rivettt voiced that while her grandfather held communist and socialist beliefs, his interests in philosophy predated political involvement. She explained that Hammett was reading Kant by the age of 14, and enjoyed keeping up with current philosophers. This passion influenced his writing, contributing to The Maltese Falcon’s depth.

Fed’s Inflation Target Too Low

WHY IS THE FEDERAL RESERVE ENFORCING A TWO PERCENT INFLATION RATE TARGET? Such a monetary policy has meant Fed Governors have endangered economic growth by holding to a target rate that I believe is too low.

Whatever the basis for their fears of inflation—whether it be that so-called inflation expectations are too high, or product costs (such as worker’s wages) rise too fast, the result of their credit-tightening measures has been that household incomes have been kept lower than inflation historically, increasing income and wealth inequality.

It has thus denied workers earning hourly wages as shown in the above FRED graph the chance to ever catch up to historical inflation and better their financial well-being.

maximum employment.

Why? It seems two percent is a common target throughout advanced economies, rather than based on empirical studies that verified that it, in fact, maintained stable inflation and maximum employment—the Fed’s twin mandates.

Economists will tell you the two percent figure is based on their belief that the measured inflation rate overshoots actual inflation by something like two percent, which means they were really trying to get back to zero inflation! If so, that sounds like a great way to tempt actual deflation and a serious recession.

Economic VOICE

But shouldn’t the prime goal of a well-functioning Democracy be to decrease income inequality? Especially when there are so many American voters— especially high-school educated wage earners— questioning whether American-style democracy is serving their needs.

This is what happened in the Great Recession that lasted from 2007-09. The Fed had jacked up their fed funds overnight rate charged to banks to five percent. It was when Fed Chair Alan Greenspan killed the housing market by the Chinese drip torture method, raising the fed funds rate by one-quarter percent 16 consecutive times, thus busting the housing bubble and causing the Great Recession (after Greenspan suggested that an adjustable-rate mortgage might be desirable in such times).

“He did have ambitions for this novel as literature, not just a detective story, and he said so to his publishers when he was starting work on the novel,” explained Rivett.

The Maltese Falcon follows private detective Sam Spade as he is hired by Brigid O’Shaughnessy, a woman searching for a priceless falcon statuette. However, she is not the only one searching, and Spade finds himself in a deadly treasure hunt.

Throughout the novel, readers remain unsure what Spade or other characters are thinking. Dialogue is riddled with lies and misleading details. Accordingly, Rivett encourages readers to “watch the body language” to discover truths. She added that Spade’s refusal to conform to a conventional moral code heightens the book’s existentialism.

“There are those who will make the, I think, valid claim that The Maltese Falcon is the first American existentialist novel,” said Rivett. “Sam

revive their housing market. This meant that a mortgage lender had to literally subsidize the mortgage borrower to induce them to take out a mortgage loan.

Household incomes suffered even more during this time. Average hourly wages didn’t begin to increase until 2015 and inflation return to its longer-term two percent range in 2017 when new Fed Chair Ben Bernanke began the Fed’s policy of buying treasury and mortgage securities to inject liquidity back into the markets to stimulate growth. (He was nicknamed ‘helicopter Ben’ for the huge boost it gave to the money supply).

This is but one example of what happened when the Fed clamped down too hard on inflation. It has been the Fed’s bias since the 1970s that resulted in keeping household income from ever catching up to inflation.

Progressive labor economist Jared Bernstein opined on this matter in the Washington Post shortly after Bernanke announced the Fed’s decision.

“The fact is that the target is two percent because

Spade is very much a pragmatist, he’s a smart guy, and he understands human nature. I think that was perhaps my grandfather’s goal: to examine and expose and talk about human nature, but do it in a way that was readable and fun.”

This quality shines through the 1941 film, as Huston worked to subvert Hays Code restrictions; trying to maintain the book’s essence despite being allowed to only hint at Spade and O’Shaughnessy’s physical relationship and co-star Peter Lorre’s character’s sexuality.

With Saturday’s event, Rivett hopes to enhance locals’ reading and viewing experiences.

“I want people to understand my grandfather and his work a little better, to broaden and deepen what they look for in his work,” said Rivett. “I want them to see him perhaps a little bit the way I see him.”

Former Chairman Ben Bernanke said in 2012 keeping a two percent cap enabled the Federal Reserve to better balance its twin mandates to maintain stable prices with

the target is two percent. Were the target three percent or four percent, you’d be reasonably asking me, why three or four? To the extent that there’s an anti-inflation bias among economic elites (and thus an anti-full-employment bias), and I think that’s often the case, I’d reiterate arguments I made here…that the debates over full employment and Federal Reserve policy are generally dominated by the interests of the minority who worry more about inflation and asset values than those who worry about jobs and paychecks.”

It has in fact become a tool to suppress the incomes of average households and worsen income inequality; just as hourly wages are accelerating. But will that change their minds?

Santa Barbara Symphony

Civilization and Its Challenges

– Sigmund Freud meets Miguel del Águila et al . . .


THE GREAT AMERICAN PLAINS by train was the imagery for an unusually beautiful reflection on the excitement and challenges of immigrant experience portrayed by the Santa Barbara Symphony, under the guidance of Maestro Nir Kabaretti, for their 2023 season opener at the Granada Theatre.

Music of Elmer Bernstein (Toccata for Toy Trains Concert Suite), Miguel del Águila (Concerto for Violin: El Viaje de una Vida-The Journey of a Lifetime) and Antonin Dvořák (Symphony No. 9, From the New World) neatly tagged the source of the immigrant surge (improved transportation),

the finality of leaving one’s homeland never to return, and the bittersweet lessons, psychological and otherwise, telegraphed poignantly to the old world, from the new.

Opening the program, Elmer Bernstein’s charming wind and percussion chamber music score (eight players) for a short 1957 stop action animation film by Charles and Ray Eames, Toccata for Toy Trains, freshened up a bit with a new arrangement by Elmer’s son, Peter. About 17 minutes in length, the concert suite is pure neoclassicism – think Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress. For all its innocent charm, the score is also tricky for its subtle bravura. Kudos in particular to Santa Barbara Symphony principal trumpet Jon Lewis for reliably spot-on virtuosity, and the chamber group for tight, characterful

Portugal, Castles, & Pipe Organs?

Santa Barbara music critic Daniel Kepl is taking a small group of participants on a 12-day tour of Portugal June 8-19, 2023, which will focus on visiting the cathedrals and historic pipe organs of the country. Stays in Lisbon and Porto will be supplemented by day trips to the Douro River Valley, Guimaråes, Braga, Coimbra, Fátima, Mafra, and the city of castles, Sintra. There are three spaces left for this trip. Full itinerary and costs: https://emeritiphilharmonic.com/

Full Rail Service to Return Soon


Rail Corridor Agency, which manages the Amtrak® Pacific Surfliner®, has announced that service between San Diego and Los Angeles will resume on weekends starting on February 4th. Rails in southern California have been out of service since September 2022, when officials noticed they had shifted on the hillside. Recent storms have left rails north of Goleta closed for repairs and construction, though. Right now, thruway bus service connects San Luis Obispo to the Bay area, but train service is anticipated to be fully restored north of Los Angeles the week of February 13th. The temporary schedule set in place in October 2022 will remain in effect until the end of March. www.pacificsurfliner.com


Miguel del Águila’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, Op. 94, El viaje de una vida - The Journey of a Lifetime (2007), is a stunningly accessible if beastly difficult recent entrant in the violin concerto sweepstakes. Its four movements – Crossing the Ocean to a New World, In the Purple Land, The Return, and Finale - the violin soloist accepting the musical mantle of protagonist throughout the work, contemplate the gauntlet of physical as well as psychological challenges all immigrants face when leaving their homeland for a foreign land and culture. De Águila himself a living witness to the immigrant struggle, having traveled from his native Uruguay to the United States (where he received his American citizenship) as a young man, then to Europe for a period of years and back again to America in 1992, has created a score as sweeping as the oceans, actual and allegorical, that separate whole continents and peoples.

Puerto Rican violinist/conductor Guillermo Figueroa, who premiered del Águila’s concerto in 2007 and has been performing it around the

world ever since, was the featured soloist last weekend in Santa Barbara, approaching its virtuoso musical cautionary tales with the sublime self-confidence of one who owns the work – every note of it. The orchestra and Kabaretti jousted and tarried, danced and pivoted, meter changes flying in all directions like bats out of hell while Figueroa, sanguine in his complete mastery of the piece, kept things steady, well-paced, and pertinent. As encore, fellow Porto Rican Ernesto Cordero’s Concertino Tropical.

A particularly expressive and finely honed performance of Antonin Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, From the New World, found the Santa Barbara Symphony in first-rate professional fettle, Kabaretti conducting from memory with the authority of dozens of performances over the years under his belt. Likewise, the orchestra personnel. Nuanced phrasing, careful balances, an indefatigable horn section (yes!), tight percussion battery, super elegant wind and low brass section playing, and lush string ensemble cohesion and color spoke truth to the notion that under Kabaretti’s leadership and humanity, the Santa Barbara Symphony might well be one of the best regional orchestras on the west coast.

WHAT FANTASTIC WEATHER WE ARE HAVING! The fresh air and sparkle of a crystal clear Saturday morning was indeed glorious. The seemingly unending streams of pelting rain and unending storms had migrated to the East but the immediate forecast of King Tides suggested that Mother Nature might not be done with us quite yet. The prospect of the weekend’s large waves appeared threatening. Magnificent and forceful, King Tides appear on our shores a couple of times a year but on the heels of the recent storms they were projected to become a reason for concern.

Curiosity, as always, gets the better of me! Despite warnings, it was hard to resist visiting the harbor and beaches downstream to view the first of the King Tides last Saturday, January 21st. Other curious onlookers and friends had already gathered near the shuttered Yacht Club for a look-see, although the surf-drenched breakwater walkway was avoided due to the whitewater that continually breached its walls. The waves were indeed high but fortunately were not as dangerous as expected … they were actually mild compared to the last weeks brutal downpours that caused so much damage.

Unlike the chaotic weather patterns of the last years, King Tides are a natural phenomenon and not related in any way to climate change. While the term “King Tide” isn’t a scientific term, it is used to describe very high tides, caused when there is alignment of the gravitational pull between sun, moon, and Earth. When King Tides occur during floods or storms, water levels can rise higher and have the potential to cause damage to the coastline and coastal property. Needless to say, Santa Barbara has suffered from the last several weeks’ erosion along its shores and the resulting damage.

Although a bi-yearly event, the King Tides, when added to climate change, elevate rising sea levels caused by carbon dioxide in the atmosphere with the consumption of fossil fuels and other environmental assaults. Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere acts like a blanket trapping in heat (further

thickening the blanket), warming the planet and its oceans. As a result glaciers and ice sheets are melting into the sea, with water expanding as it warms. The California coastline is - and will be - greatly impacted: California State Seal-Level Rise Guidance tells us that San Francisco’s projected a sea rise will be between 1.1 and 2.7 feet at the half century mark and by the year 2100, between 2.4 and 6.9 feet with the potential for more than ten feet if there is extreme melting of the West Antarctic ice sheet. A shade of things to come, perhaps?

The emergency dredge of our harbor entrance is well underway so hopefully the last weeks and months are informing the community to plan for the decades ahead. The changeable weather patterns of the last few years has definitely been a wake-up call. The Thomas Fire and the January 9th Montecito mud slide and debris flow of five years ago and the recent onslaught on exactly the same date in 2023 certainly acts as a reminder of how tightly woven we are with the forces of nature – not to mention serendipitous events! Outside of my window I see blue skies and brilliant sunshine, so let’s hope that Mother Nature graces us with more of the same. Stay tuned ...

Fostering Community

at MOSAIC Therapy Collective

UNDERSTANDING IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO SUPPORT A VILLAGE, MOSAIC Therapy Collective has emerged as Santa Barbara’s newest community resource.

A non-profit multidisciplinary clinic spearheaded by local speech-language pathologists Sharon MacDonald and Caitlin Downie, this innovative space will offer therapists working across fields a welcoming environment to host their sessions.

The result is a collaborative atmosphere that will not only support therapists as they launch their own private practices, but also provide free community programming such as Mommy & Me groups, language enrichment courses, and more.

“We are an accredited 501c3 so we have community initiatives that are also embedded in this program, it’s not just an affordable space for therapists,” shared MacDonald. “We want to really do something to give back and support the community as well.”

MacDonald and Downie met while working with students within the Santa Barbara Unified School District. United in their passion for helping others and desire to maintain their own private practices, the pair began brainstorming how they could achieve their dreams amidst soaring rental prices.

They quickly realized that these rental prices were preventing many other local therapists from starting their own practices, creating a service gap for the Santa Barbara community.

“There’s a huge shortage and the existing practices have really long waitlists, some of them

A Fortune Inside My Piggy Bank

Una Fortuna Dentro De Mi Alcancía De Cochinito

Exhibition January 31st to March 31st

Casa Dolores is very fortunate to feature in this exhibition an array of vintage clay piggy banks of all sizes, mostly from Jalisco (Tlaquepaque style) made in the 1970s. Surprisingly some whistle and other even with old coins inside (pig had to be broken to get money out).

Come and discover their handcrafted technique. Adults and children can be attracted by the cuteness of the piggy bank and to get on the habit to save your pennies, as mom said.

Casa Dolores es muy afortunada en presentar en esta exposición un grupo de antigüas alcancías de cochinito

up to two years,” explained Downie. “This is hopefully going to get more people into the private industry that might not be able to otherwise.”

Motivated to remove overhead costs from the equation, the duo established MOSAIC Therapy Collective, where therapists pay a monthly fee to utilize the collective’s furnished rooms and offices for their sessions as needed.

“The idea is to be able to create a more affordable opportunity for providers, and concurrently drive costs down to be a little more accessible for our community members,” said MacDonald.

With membership options ranging from full-time to part-time or hourly rates, MOSAIC holds the goal of offering holistic care by hosting providers who work with individuals of all ages. This includes occupational therapists, licensed marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and speech-language pathologists, with physical therapists due to start this spring.

By unifying all of these providers in one location, clients can benefit from on-site referrals and a multidisciplinary care approach if needed. Therapists will also enjoy opportunities to collaborate with one another, as well as participate in professional development and networking workshops.

Rather than be assigned one office, therapists will be able to alternate sessions between rooms to fully utilize the collective’s tools and resources, including sensory tools, educational toys, and more.

“We have a lot of curriculums and standardized assessments, which is a huge piece to having a private practice,” said Downie, adding that these assessments’ costs are often another financial barrier for beginning private practices.

Therapists will also have the chance to give back by hosting courses through MOSAIC’s community outreach initiatives, including Mommy & Me programs, aphasia support groups, music and movement classes, support groups for siblings and parents, and more.

Looking ahead, MOSAIC also hopes to offer scholarship funding opportunities to ensure individuals from underserved communities or lower-income backgrounds are able to receive the care they need. Currently, the nonprofit is seeking community partnerships and donors to support this and ongoing efforts.

The taller ones that stand in the sunken garden at the County Courthouse are at least that old; these were fully mature when they were planted on the grounds following the construction of the new courthouse after the 1926 earthquake.

Its most distinctive characteristic is its open canopy of slightly drooping fronds –the quintessential appearance and relaxed feel of a tropical island palm.

The spikes of its brand-new pinnate (featherlike) fronds emerge upright from the top of the trunk; over time, they open and gradually recline into an arched downward position. Each mature frond is long (over ten feet) and bears slender leaflets (up to 20-inches long and twoinches wide). The top surfaces of the fronds are a dark green; the bottoms are often a lighter green.

Inflorescences (flower bearing structures) develop among the lower fronds; their stems are rather long (up to 2½-feet) and emerge in groups of three to seven that are fused at the base of the group.

Small, white, and inconspicuous flowers completely cover the inflorescences. This palm is “monecious,” meaning that male and female flowers occur on the same tree. Flowering can occur over a lengthy period - from February to September.

After pollination, the flowers develop fruit in tight clusters along the stems. Each fruit (one- to two-inches long) is a “drupe” (a single seed inside a fleshy covering) and is

generally ovoid in shape narrowing to a small nub at the end, New fruit is green, later turns yellow, and, when ripe, turns red.

The Kentia Palm grows naturally with a singular trunk. However, it is often planted in groups of three to five for landscape design appeal. Its slender trunk (six- to teninches wide) has a slight flare at the base. It is slow growing, reaching a height at maturity of over 50 feet with a canopy spread of 20 feet. The trunk is a vibrant green when young, somewhat resembling bamboo; with age, it will gray out. The younger trunks are marked prominently with gray bands, which are the leaf scars from detached fonds.

This palm is endemic to the tiny (six miles long and one mile wide!) Lord Howe Island located in the Tasman Sea 500 miles off the coast of New South Wales, Australia. A rugged, volcanic remnant, this island was first discovered by English explorers in 1788.

The most used common name, Kentia Palm, was given in reference to the small town of Kentia on the island – that town was named after William Kent (1685-1748), a British botanist and garden designer. Its other common names include Paradise Palm, Parlor Palm, Victorian Parlor Palm, Sentry Palm, and Thatch Palm.

The botanical name for Kentia Palm is Howea forsteriana The genus name, Howea, refers to its diminutive homeland, Lord Howe Island. The species epithet, forsteriana, refers to the father-son duo of Johann and Georg Forster, both naturalists and authors, who served on Captain Cook’s second voyage to the Pacific Ocean in the 1770s.

Amazingly, though endemic to such a tiny and isolated oceanic island, Kentia Palm would become the most renowned and iconic indoor plant worldwide. Starting in the 1870s, its seeds were shipped from Lord Howe Island to England and other countries, including the United States. It

has now been cultivated and planted out in every tropical and subtropical region in the world.

The export of seeds remains a key part of the economy of Lord Howe Island. However, these sales are now tightly regulated, so seeds from mature palms growing in our area are often harvested and sold to nurseries that specialize in propagating palms.

This lovely palm was given the common name “Parlor Palm,” because it was a must-have accessory for Victorian-era homes, ballrooms, and lobbies of public buildings. It was so highly prized that it was quickly awarded the prestigious Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit. Even today, it is considered a decorative plant that will always add a touch of elegance and refinement to indoor spaces.

Kentia Palm is admirably adapted to our Mediterranean climate. Once established, it is somewhat drought tolerant - but does require periodic watering during the dry season. It is cold hardy to temperatures below freezing and has even survived temperatures down to 25º F. for brief periods. It can be grown in full sun - but looks better within partial shade and wind protection; in hot direct sun, its leaves can sunburn. It is tolerant of many types of soils, including clay and rocky soils, but does best in sandy loam soils that are well drained. It is a slow-growing palm (less than six inches per year). It sometimes requires fertilizing with special palm fertilizer that contains micronutrients, in order to maintain both growth and a deep green foliage color. When planted outdoors, it is mostly insect- and disease-free. When grown indoors, it is susceptible to scale and spider mites, which can be easily treated by spraying with insecticidal soaps.

Kentia Palm can be planted as a single-trunk specimen, in twos and threes for landscape interest, or in mass for a dramatic, lush, tropical effect.

Mature Kentia Palms can be seen in many locations in our community: in the sunken gardens of the County Courthouse; in front of the Carriage Museum at Pershing Park; in the Santa Barbara Cemetery; mixed with other palms in front of the Cabrillo Arts Pavilion; many in Lotusland; on the UCSB campus; and, in yards and gardens all around town.

Tree-of-the-Month articles are sponsored by Santa Barbara Beautiful, whose mission includes increasing public awareness and appreciation of Santa Barbara’s many outstanding trees and, in a long-time partnership with the City Parks & Recreation Department, the funding and planting of trees along the City’s streets.

Those who wish to honor a special someone can do so with an attractive commemorative marker that will be installed at the base of an existing street tree in the City of Santa Barbara. Because Santa Barbara Beautiful has participated in the planting to date of over 13,000 street trees, there are plenty of trees from which to choose!

All the while, Aza yearns to be beautiful. She turns to the queen’s magic mirror for a beauty potion, transforming into a conventionally pretty maiden. However, this beauty will not save Aza from the power-hungry Ivi’s ambitions or the evil forces working within her mirror.

AZA ENTERED THE WORLD SINGING. Discovered as an abandoned infant wrapped in a velvet blanket and adopted by an innkeeper and his wife, Aza’s voice grows more lovely with age, making her one of the Kingdom of Ayotha’s strongest singers. However, with her cast iron hair and stature failing to meet Ayothian beauty standards, Aza finds it difficult to be seen, much less heard.

Set in the same world as Gail Carson Levine’s 1997 book Ella Enchanted, Fairest sends readers on a delightful romp through the world of fairy tales. Captivating readers with elements of Snow White, The Little Mermaid, and others, Fairest emerges as an original novel with a time-honored message: true beauty derives from one’s character.

Fairest follows Aza as she is forced into accompanying a duchess to the royal wedding of King Oscaro and his bride, Ivi. Regularly mocked by inn guests for her appearance, Aza faces great anxiety in journeying to the castle and mingling with royalty. Her anxiety increases when Queen Ivi discovers Aza’s singing voice and knack for ventriloquism, blackmailing Aza into serving as her lady-in-waiting and singing in her place for public ceremonies.

Best suited for students with a fourth grade reading level and up, Fairest serves as an apt introduction for discussing the morals and themes of fairy tales. Young readers will easily draw connections between Fairest and classic fantasy, allowing for comparisons on how stories have utilized poisoned apples, magic mirrors, fairies, and other familiar literary tools. Moreover, while other fairy tales wholeheartedly condemn their villains, Fairest extends sympathy and redemption to Ivi, revealing that her motives derived from a place of insecurity and fear rather than evil.

Aza’s story also offers students a tale of empowerment, demonstrating the value of learning to love yourself rather than ascribe to society’s judgment. In trusting herself, Aza evolves from consistent hiding and self-deprecation to being able to proudly stand before a mirror and call herself dignified — showing young readers that beauty is defined by self-worth and confidence.

Gene Splicing Saved Victor Bartolome's Life


CELLS changed Victor Bartolome’s life — after 30 years of cancer treatments, stress, and mental anguish. It also relieved his wife, Barbara, and their five children from the worry and distress over the health of their loving and devoted father and husband.

Both Victor and Barbara are retirees of UC Santa Barbara. They live in Santa Barbara and raised their family here, as well as home hosted 16 foreign exchange students over the years.

“It sounded unreal, like something from a science fiction movie. I thought that was pretty cool,” said Victor, 74, of the request by Dr. WenKai Weng, Lead Oncologist at Stanford University’s Cancer Center, for him to participate

in the CRISPR CAR-T Clinical Trial. The experimental treatment would make Victor one of the first humans to undergo a unique genome-editing technique which modifies stem cells to fight cancers.

Victor had been diagnosed with a rare type of Cutaneous T-Cell Lymphoma 30 years before. It started with a rash on his hip. After years of chemo, radiation, and topical treatments, he had been told by one Los Angeles based oncologist, who was nationally known as an expert in the disease, that there were no therapies left to treat him. It was devastating to him and his entire family.

Shortly after this tragic news, a local physician, Dr. James Kwako, made the suggestion to look into Stanford University’s Cancer Center and related that he knew of a patient that had been successfully treated there for the same disease. That referral eventually led to Bartolome’s participation in the

CRISPR CAR-T Clinical Trial at Stanford.

Barbara enthusiastically shared, “The Stanford medical team is incredibly top-level, as well as kind, caring, and supportive! Oncologist Dr. Youn-Hee Kim said to me on our first visit there, ‘I want you to know we are going to take excellent care of your husband.’ Then, she hugged me and turned and hugged Victor… and all of the eight doctors in the exam room warmly hugged each of us!”

Victor was one of only 18 patients included in the CRISPR Clinical Trial, administered in multiple medical centers in the U.S. He received the genome-edited donor stem cells on September 9th, 2021. They were easily injected through a pic line in his arm and no side-effects occurred.

On the day of his injection, they drew a blood sample that showed over 1600 cancer cells present. Just 14 days later, there were none!

that showed over 1600 cancer cells present. Just 14 days later, there were none!” related Barbara, who has bravely supported and positively encouraged Victor through his 30 plus year cancer journey.

Now, after 15 months of blood tests showing no presence of Lymphoma, Victor has been declared to be in remission. The Stanford medical team will continue to monitor him for five years.

Making changes to DNA, CRISPR has increased precise editing, which can create an antiviral defense system. For developing this technique, Jennifer Doudna and Emmanuelle Charpetier received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 2020. CRISPR is an acronym for Clustered Regularly Interspaced Short Palindromic Repeats, which are the basis of a bacterial defense system.

The headquarters for the CRISPR organization is in Switzerland, with U.S. based offices and research labs in San Francisco and Boston.

“We took a gift box packed with a selection of food items from Santa Barbara based companies to the San Francisco office of CRISPR and thanked them for their contributions to the Clinical Trial’s wonderful success, explaining that Victor’s life has been saved by his participation in it. We saw tears in the eyes of the employees. We were told that they hadn’t ever met any of the patients in the trial and it was an incredibly moving experience to meet Victor. We hope to eventually travel to the other CRISPR offices with a gift box of Santa Barbara goodies to thank them all, as well,” said Barbara.

CRISPR has also conducted other successful Clinical Trials to eradicate many other diseases like Sickle Cell Anemia and a specific type of blindness.

It was determined that his Lymphoma was eradicated from his blood in 14 days. “On the day of his injection, they drew a blood sample

Victor concluded, “We sincerely hope that hearing of my whole experience gives other people who are facing cancer, or other major disease, much hope!”

Isaac Julien’s Once Again… (Statues Never Die)


4:00 – 6:00 PM McCune Conference Room, 6020 HSSB

Discussion: ISAAC JULIEN

Join us for a discussion with Isaac Julien about his process of creating Once Again… (Statues Never Die) . Commissioned by the Barnes Foundation on the occasion of its 100th Anniversary in 2022, Julien’s immersive, black-and-white, five-screen, on-site video installation Once Again… (Statues Never Die) brings to light the relationship between Dr. Albert C. Barnes, who was an early U.S. collector and exhibitor of African material culture, and the famed African American philosopher and cultural critic Alain Locke, known as the “Father of the Harlem Renaissance.” A reception will follow.

Discussants will include Mark Nash, Professor at UC Santa Cruz, and Jeffrey Stewart, Distinguished Professor and MacArthur Foundation Chair in Black Studies and Interim Vice Chancellor for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion at UCSB. Susan Solt, Distinguished Professor of Theater Arts at UC Santa Cruz, will moderate.

Sir Isaac Julien KBE RA is Distinguished Professor of the Arts at UC Santa Cruz, where he also leads the Isaac Julien Lab together with Arts Professor Mark Nash. Julien is the recipient of The Royal Academy of Arts Charles Wollaston Award 2017. Most recently, he was awarded a Kaiserring Goslar Award in 2022, and was granted a knighthood as part of the Queen’s Honours List in 2022.

Attendees will receive a link to the film in its single-screen format.
