Walk To End Alzheimer’s Committee Members Dedicate Fight To Loved Ones

GARCIA are on the committee for

this year’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s, happening at Chase Palm Park on Saturday, November 5th.

On Walk day, participants honor those affected by dementia with the poignant Promise Garden ceremony, where they receive a flower in one of four colors to represent their personal connections to the cause before embarking on the Walk route along East Beach.

Walk Chair Gabriella will hold a purple flower, signifying that she has lost a loved one to the disease.

“They say grief is the price to pay for having loved someone so much, and I think about that every day when I look at my poppa’s photo,” said Gabriella. “He was my father figure and my hero.”

Gabriella became a caregiver for her grandfather at just 19 years old, sacrificing a lot of the “normal” things that people her age were doing, like going away to college. Although their journey navigating Alzheimer’s was long and hard with many heartbreaking times, Gabriella explained she wouldn’t have changed it because it was all for a reason.

“I learned so much about life and love, perhaps more than some people learn in a lifetime,” she said. “Alzheimer’s does that to you. When someone’s life and wellbeing is in your hands because they no longer have a voice, it changes you.”

Gabriella recalls the memories they shared together growing up, like playing baseball and accidentally breaking their front window, going to the store in his truck to buy snacks that her mom would never let her have, to the night prior to his passing, holding hands while she


listened to his heart beat as he slept.

After a 10-year career providing support for families affected by dementia, Gabriella has chosen to volunteer her time as a Chair for the Walk to End Alzheimer’s to help keep her poppa’s memory alive.

“He was such a wonderful man with the biggest heart and a passion for helping those in need, and I strive to do the same,” she said.

Alongside Gabriella’s purple flower, David will hold a yellow flower on Walk day, representing that he is caring for someone living with the disease.

David’s mom was diagnosed with earlyonset Alzheimer’s eight years ago, after first experiencing mild cognitive impairment. The disease’s progression had been slower than expected, but it has begun accelerating in the last few years.

David was fortunate enough to be able to take this last year off of work to live with his

mom, helping her in day-to-day activities and preparing for her transition to an assisted living facility. His mom’s parents both had dementia, and he watched her care for them in their later years.

“I remember seeing the pain and frustration of both my grandparents living with dementia and my mom caring for them,” David said. “It breaks my heart to be in her position now, but I’m trying to practice the perseverance and support that she taught me all those years ago.”

David’s commitment to the Walk comes from his desire to support the community and help fund research.

“Together we can make the lives of people living with Alzheimer’s better and work toward a future without the disease,” he said.

Add your flower to the fight to end Alzheimer’s and join this year’s Santa Barbara Walk to End Alzheimer’s on Saturday, November 5th, at Chase Palm Park.

I AND J BONDS have been sold by the Santa Barbara Unified School District for $53 million.

Measures I and J were approved by voters in 2016, with $193 million dedicated to the modernization of the district’s facilities.

“While internally we have felt that we were on solid financial footing, to have an external agency (Moodys) validate our fiscal practices is not only reassuring for us, but also for the community that invests in us,” said Dr. Hilda Maldonado, SB Unified Superintendent.

In 2016, the following commitments were made to aid elementary schools through Measure J, a $58-million bond: replacement of old portables with new permanent classrooms; repair outdated underground utilities – water, sewer, and natural gas; repair playground surfaces and outdoor paving; modernization of classroom lighting, windows, heating, and ventilation systems; repair old, leaky roofs; and modernization of old bathrooms.

Rep Carbajal Sponsors Bill To Allow DACA Recipients to Join Military AHOUSE

BILL CALLED “FIGHT FOR THE AMERICAN DREAM ACT,” has been introduced by US Rep. Salud Carbajal and Rep. Ruben Gallego, which would create a pathway for participants of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) program to join and serve in the United States military.

“When my parents brought me to this country as a young child, I was granted the opportunity to get a good education, serve my country in the military, and call the nation I volunteered to protect my permanent home. America’s DACA recipients, young Americans who know no other country to call home and work every day to support that home, deserve that same opportunity,” said US Rep. Salud Carbajal. “I’m proud to join my colleague and fellow veteran Congressman Gallego to introduce this commonsense and straightforward bill to give our DACA recipients a clear pathway to serving their nation and the security to call that nation home in the course of their service.”

Currently, DACA recipients are barred from joining the U.S. military. The Fight for the American Dream Act would reverse that restriction. Similarly, for DACA recipients who are honorably discharged after their service, the Act creates a pathway to grant them permanent residence status.

“DACA recipients were brought to the U.S. as children. They’ve gone to college, started successful businesses, and raised their families here in the United States–the country they call home,” said Rep. Gallego. “However, there currently isn’t a path for DACA recipients who want to serve in the military. Immigrants from all corners of the world can join our armed forces, but unfortunately, DACA recipients are excluded from that same opportunity. My bill fixes that and provides a path to permanent residence for DACA recipients so they, too, can pursue their American Dream.”

Rep. Salud Carbajal represents California’s 24th congressional district, encompassing Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo and part of Ventura County. He sits on the House Armed Services Committee, Agriculture Committee, and Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he serves as the Chair of the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation.

SB Zoo Director Nancy McToldridge Retires

After 40 Years of Service FOLLOWING

FOUR DECADES OF DEDICATION AND CARE, Santa Barbara Zoo Director Nancy McToldridge has announced her retirement. First joining the SB Zoo in 1982 as its Director of Education, she went on to support and expand the zoo’s programming as Assistant Director and Chief Operating Officer before ultimately becoming Zoo Director in 2007. Today, the SB Zoo is the city’s most-visited attraction. McToldridge’s late husband, Ted McToldridge, served as the Zoo’s first director from 1964 until his retirement in December 1997.

“Being a part of the Santa Barbara Zoo and this beloved Santa Barbara community has been such an honor,” shared McToldridge. “I know Ted would agree with me that our many years together at the Santa Barbara Zoo were some of the best of our lives! Looking back to see how far we’ve come, and everything that has been accomplished with our amazing team, all while being advocates for wildlife conservation worldwide, is tremendously rewarding. I look forward to supporting the Santa Barbara Zoo for many years to come!”

In recognition of McToldridge’s 40 years of service, the Zoo has established the Nancy H. McToldridge Zoo Camp Scholarship Fund to continue her commitment to education and connecting people with animals in a meaningful way. www.sbzoo.org

When Every Drop Counts

Competing in the national Collegiate Inventors Competition, undergraduate student Visala Tallavarjula tackles water scarcity with her innovative irrigation solution.

PEOPLE NEED WATER TO DRINK, but we also need it to grow our food. This simple reality poses a complex dilemma for an increasing number of communities as climate change saps the moisture from some of Earth’s most fertile regions. The situation has mobilized people around the world, from farmers and inventors to scientists and government officials. When it comes to water, everyone is trying to figure out how to use less and lose less.

UC Santa Barbara student Visala Tallavarjula is among those who’ve set their minds to this task. And now the fourth-year environmental studies major has made it to the final round of the 2022 Collegiate Inventors Competition with her innovative solution: Sequestron. The irrigation technique promises to increase food production while slashing water use, all with readily available materials.

As one of five finalists in the contest run by the National Inventors Hall of Fame, she will present her idea at the United States Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, Virginia, this week. “This is a really exciting opportunity,” she said.

So is her technique, which can be accomplished with off-the-shelf components. “You can do this in your own garden,” Tallavarjula said. Sequestron comprises three innovations in one package. The first is a topsoil layer of perlite-amended soil to reduce evaporation. The second is an infiltration insert that delivers water from drippers four inches below the surface, right to a plant’s roots. Finally comes a layer of soil and charcoal spread in patches below the roots to prevent water from percolating deeper into the ground.

Tests suggest the system increases crop yield while cutting water use in half. The perliteamended top layer alone reduces water use by 30 percent. Sequestron even enables farmers to grow crops in sand. “This could actually arrest desertification,” Tallavarjula said.

Tallavarjula’s natural curiosity and desire to implement ideas drove her forward

from a young age. “Science has always been a big part of my life,” she said. Raised in Santa Clara, California, she’s the daughter of a Polish mother and an Indian father who both have a deep connection to farming. Her parents supported her curiosity and ambition from an early age. “I’ve participated in science fairs pretty much my whole life,” she added.

The seed of the Sequestron project was planted while Tallavarjula was in junior high school. The family was driving through California’s Central Valley, passing by field after field being irrigated by sprinklers. “You could literally see the water evaporating off the fields because it was hot,” she recalled. Yet time and again they saw billboards and signs cursing the drought and imploring people to conserve water.

With support from her father, a nuclear engineer, Tallavarjula began investigating subsurface drip irrigation. These systems deliver water directly to a plant’s roots. Unfortunately, they are expensive due to the additional hardware, time, and labor involved in installation. They’re also more difficult to maintain than a simple sprinkler system.

Even the greatest innovation is useless if no one adopts it. As Tallavarjula noted, “Farmers tend to be distrustful of people coming in and introducing new systems.” Farming is part of their identity. Many of them have been in agriculture for generations and have developed their own methods.

Tallavarjula wanted to work with farmers to develop a system they were likely to adopt. Her solution was to synthesize several promising technologies into a single approach. Sequestron combines practices that are already familiar to many farmers. It’s also modular, so different aspects of the system can be adapted to a farmer’s individual needs.

Sequestron’s charcoal layer keeps water near plants’ roots, and the charcoal’s tiny crevices also provide habitat for beneficial microbes, much like an aquarium filter.

She’s made significant progress. Tallavarjula just returned from setting up a pilot project in Sedona, Arizona. A grant from the Strauss Scholarship Foundation enabled her to implement Sequestron with the Sedona Greenhouse Project, a non-profit using regenerative farming methods to providing fresh produce for the Sedona community.

That trip marked the fourth time Tallavarjula has installed Sequestron. She previously implemented the project in the South Bay at Jacob’s Farm in San Jose and at Full Circle Farm in Sunnyvale. In 2020, thanks to a grant from UC Berkeley’s Big Ideas Competition, she took her project to Centurion University of Technology and Management in Odisha, India.

Tallavarjula has accumulated quite a CV of accomplishments while pursuing Sequestron. In addition to the Strauss Scholarship and Big Ideas Award, she was a regional finalist in Google’s 2016 science fair, won second prize in Amgen’s 2018 Bay Area BioGENEius Competition, and was the Synopsys ‘n+1’ Next Break Through Award winner in 2018. She also was part of the National U.S. Stockholm Junior Water Prize after being chosen as California’s representative three years in a row: 2016, 2017, and 2018.

That said, she’s quick to share credit for her success. “This project is more than just me. It’s my advisor, my dad, my mom, everyone involved,” Tallavarjula said. “No one ever builds anything on their own, and if they say they did then they’re lying.”

Tallavarjula plans to develop Sequestron into a product and start a company. In fact, she’s already applied to a startup accelerator in Northern California. After a lot of thought, she decided against going the non-profit route. “It takes a long time,” she explained, “years and years of work where you’re not getting paid very much, and you’re dependent on the donations of others.” She wanted a more reliable, hybrid way forward to ensure that Sequestron succeeds and can help farmers and their communities.

She envisions the company as a tiered enterprise, where sales revenue supports pro-bono work with small communities in developing and arid regions. Tallavarjula is currently focused on small operations, though she hopes to introduce Sequestron to industrialized farms in the future.

“This project could save lives,” she said. It has the potential to restore soils and create more arable land, increase food production and ensure communities conserve clean, freshwater for drinking.

“Priorities are shifting, but I think it’s just starting to hit people now that they don’t have water,” she continued. “And everything runs on freshwater.”

Bookworm Corner: If You Give a Mouse a Cookie

READERS ON AN INCREASINGLY RIDICULOUS, LIGHTHEARTED JOURNEY following an extremely energetic mouse, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff aptly reflects the way young readers may think. First published in 1985, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie kicked off Numeroff’s popular If You Give series of picture books, all full of charming illustrations by Felicia Bond. Today, the series has expanded to include other animal friends and silly situations, including If You Give a Moose a Muffin, and If You Give a Pig a Pancake.

Intended for new readers, each book follows the same basic premise as If You Give a Mouse a Cookie, centering on a mouse who makes progressively more humorous requests. After asking for a cookie, mouse wants a glass of milk — but then he needs a mirror to check for a milk mustache, and then he wants a haircut, and then he needs to clean the house, etcetera. Gradually, mouse’s whirlwind logic brings him back to where he started: contentedly munching on a cookie.

On an entertainment level, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and its counterparts offer funny stories with straightforward vocabulary ideal for beginning readers to explore on their own or with an adult. From a teaching angle, though, these books provide valuable examples on the nature of cause and effect in storytelling. Every action mouse takes results in a reaction from the human assisting him, who grows more and more exhausted as he tries to meet the mouse’s whims. This emphasizes that whatever action a character in a book takes impacts those around him, even if they are seemingly insignificant.

Moreover, the way mouse’s thoughts bounce from one association to the next mimics the way many young minds work, mirroring the dynamic between a parent struggling to keep up with their child. Because of this, young readers will easily be able to follow the mouse’s thread of logic, even though its sporadic nature makes predicting what exactly will happen next difficult. Yet this delightful unpredictability is what makes this book and its sequels classics, inviting readers of all ages to reflect on how they may act similarly or differently if asked to give a mouse a cookie.

Catherine Gee

Timeless in Style , Bold in Statement

CREATING AT THE INTERSECTION OF ART AND FASHION, local designer Catherine Gee has brought her distinctive, elegant styles to La Arcada just in time for autumn wardrobe updates. Opened last month, the airy shop embodies all the elegance and grace captured by each of her carefully designed fashions, ranging from her quintessential silk blouses and dresses to tees, pants, and jackets. When combined with

her 2022 fall line, Gee’s inventory presents a thoughtful selection of what she refers to as “desk to dinner style.”

“I look at myself now as a utilitarian wardrobe builder,” explained Gee. “The goal from the beginning is to create high quality, beautiful, timeless silhouettes and styles that a woman can grab tomorrow or in ten years and still have it be very chic, but also just wearable.”

Gee’s childhood was immersed in art. The daughter of painter Frank Gee, Gee began drawing and painting

herself from a young age. She pursued this passion into college, studying art history and fine art at Sewanee: The University of the South before going on to work in art museums and eventually moving to Santa Barbara to serve as the Assistant Director of the Morris Squire Art Foundation.

In 2012, Gee became the Executive Director of The Arts Fund, where she worked on the Funk Zone Charrette Project. Through learning the necessary skills to operate a nonprofit, Gee began reflecting upon her childhood aspirations to launch her own fashion line.

“I remember having a moment when I was 11 or 12, as I feel most girls do, of ‘I want to be a fashion designer,’” shared Gee. “I remember having a spark moment of I would want to have a silk line.”

After studying with Jodi de Marcos of De Marcos Fashion Academy, Gee launched her first collection of styles in 2016, winning the Emerging Designer competition at the MAGIC Fashion Trade Show in Las Vegas. Today, Gee sells her designs wholesale and online beyond her storefront in the heart of the “American Riviera.”

the Catherine Gee line offers, including the silk blouses and slip dresses that have become synonymous with the Gee label. Glamorous in their chic simplicity, customers can choose from rich, monochromatic button-downs to bold prints, including lipstick kisses, paint swirls, a photographic print of Bali, and more.

Additional items include cotton tees with and without graphic designs, denim and cotton twill pants, and floral jacquard jackets.

Gee’s new fall line matches earth tones alongside neutrals and animal prints to provide a “city chic” look.

The boutique’s welcoming atmosphere is rounded out with fun accessories, including purses, sandals, and a small selection of jewelry. The store also offers candles and perfumes from the same company that does the private label for the White House, including a new custom Catherine Gee scent.

This year dedicated to the souls of little angels and teachers who died in the elementary school of Uvalde Texas, we will present our curatorial collection of cartonería as the Catrín, the dog Xoloitzcuintli, miniature ware, and variety of objects and toys created by Mexican artisans as little skeletons, of diverse and humble materials as papier mâché, corn husk, wood, clay, tint, etc. Admission is Free

Open 10am to 5pm Mo-Sa; 11am to 5pm Su 1114 State St., Suite 24 • www.catherinegee.com

“Being Catherine Gee, being the brand, and having created it here, all the inspiration comes from the natural state of Santa Barbara,” said Gee, adding she hopes to provide a personalized shopping experience.

The new La Arcada shop encompasses all that

Rounds Out

Stearns Wharf put on quite a party for their 150th anniversary celebration and it seemed that the entire city of Santa Barbara celebrated right along. If the crowds were any indication, the party was not limited to the wharf but spilled over to every quadrant of the waterfront and surrounding areas, including the harbor itself, the Santa Barbara Yacht Club (also celebrating their 150th), and the Maritime Museum. Ending the day was a spectacular display of fireworks visible to all up and down the coastline.

The most spectacular event of the day, the one to be featured here, was the arrival of the tall ship Mystic Whaler. Watching it make its way into the Santa Barbara harbor to be a part of the Stearns Wharf extravaganza was quite a sight to see. This 110 foot, 97 ton vessel is a reproduction of a late 19th-century coastal cargo schooner with 3,000 square feet of sail, a steel hull, and a diesel engine. On board are Italian oak floors and fir wainscoting with mahogany accents. The Mystic Whaler was built in 1967 as a tribute to the coastal trading schooners that sailed the Atlantic coastline a century ago. The schooner had quite a journey from her home waters in far off Mystic, Connecticut. She made her way down the Eastern Seaboard to Florida to be placed aboard an ocean freighter to carry her through the Panama Canal. Helmed by her captain, Christine Healy and assisted by crew, Mystic Whaler embarked on the long, long journey up the Pacific coastline to Southern California and her new home in the Channel Islands Harbor.

Thanks to the generosity of Sarah and Roger Chrisman, whose newly formed non-profit Central Coast Ocean Adventures (CCAC) now owns and operates the schooner, the plan on the West Coast includes frequent visits to Santa Barbara starting with the very first during the Stearns Wharf’s 150th anniversary celebration. Moored for the weekend’s festivities at the harbor’s main dock, she was greeted with a celebration of her own sponsored by the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum. Preceding the official reception on the terrace in front of the museum, a regulation limited group of guests were welcomed aboard the schooner to enjoy a glass of wine (or two!) and munchies to match. A special event (within a special event) was the appearance of members of Opera Santa Barbara’s company who performed highlights from Gilbert & Sullivan’s Pirates of Penzance on the Mystic Whaler’s deck. Each member of the cast played several characters by changing hats, hitting all the highlights of the operetta within one hour. The many comical interludes were met with applause laced with laughter. Unfortunately, my pictures don’t do this marvelous performance justice. But hopefully you’ll get the idea.

After the performance opera lovers walked to the larger reception honoring Roger and Sarah Chrisman. Cocktails and hors d’oeuvres preceded a short presentation of gifts for the couple which included a hand painted image of the Mystic Whaler by the museum’s talented Curator, Emily Falke, and a special bouquet of flowers for Sarah. The microphone was handed to Roger Chrisman, a long serving member of the Maritime Museum’s Board of Directors who shared, “This has been a real adventure from the time we found the Mystic Whaler until the time she arrived here on the California coast. In establishing a non-profit, Central Coast Ocean Adventures, now the owner and operator of the schooner, its mission will be to serve, to benefit the good work of the charities along the Central Coast. The Mystic Whaler will be available to schools, corporate and other groups, and, of course, especially the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum for its educational programs. Aboard the vessel, all will experience voyages of nautical, scientific, and personal discovery.”

What a noble mission – and gift - that is!

There was so much going on that day that my feet couldn’t make all the rounds I would have liked to make. However, I was able to at least watch the return to the harbor of the Yacht Club’s Parade of Fleet in honor of Stearns Wharf. And … lucky me, after this spectacular day, I was able to view the fireworks over the wharf at the conclusion of the festivities.

What a day!

Wow! UCSB Arts & Lectures’s Opening Week!


WEEK of the UCSB Arts & Lectures season featured super stars and a community connection with Ukraine, all of which intensified Santa Barbara’s hunger for cultural connections and experiences.

Charlie Crockett strummed his way into local hearts with his award winning earthy country music at the Arlington Theatre with a colorful fan base that added Wow! to his unforgettable performance.

UkraineFest was an exceptional experience of music, dance, and variety of handmade goods that evoked the personal connections of local Ukrainians with the world wide solidarity movement concerning Ukraine. This event added to local 1st Thursday activities and brought State Street to life in front of the Granada Theatre.

The folk musicians, DakhaBrakha filled the air with the whispers, wailing, and heart beat drumming soulfully unique to Ukraine. A full house at the Granada bathed in the once-in-a-life-time experience these four individuals conjured from their heart strings. They were dressed in traditional Ukrainian garb and played an array of instruments.

Lindy Hop hoppers were in an ecstatic and swinging mood with the performance of Swing Out on Saturday night at the Granada. Acclaimed choreographer Caleb Teicher brought the best of the swing dance world plus the live music of the Eyal Vilner’s Big Band.

The first lecture of the season was delivered by political expert, leadership guru, and author David Gergen. Gergen gave an inspired call to action for national civil service, while emphasizing the need for leadership training and a vision for the future. He encouraged the audience to get involved locally, embrace centrist ideals, and to reach across the political aisle.

Table of Life


BOUNTY AND GENEROSITY, as well as FoodBank of Santa Barbara County’s new capacity to capture, store, and distribute that bounty via their a Sharehouse, the 2022 Table of Life gala welcomed friends and benefactors to the ocean view estate of Steve and Cindy Leonard, while being serenaded by the Summerland Trio.

“We saw a big spike in the need for our services that developed from the spring onwards as a result of inflation, which hits the lowest earners the hardest, as they spend the highest percentage of their incomes on things such as gas and food which continue to increase in price,” commented Eric Talkin, Foodbank CEO.

Honored at the gala were the members of the La Centra-Sumerlin Foundation – including of Suzanne, Reece, Michael, and Lindsey Duca, and attorney Michael Cooney. The Foundation’s early campaign gift was an important leadership factor which paved the way for the Sharehouse campaign’s success.

Patricia Bragg was honored for giving the Foodbank their early scripts and for helping brand its mantra of “Food is Medicine.” “Out of her tiny frame and bright pink cowboy hats, her generous spirit and sisterhood partnership seamlessly lifted our campaign toward a close,” Emcee John Palminteri noted.

“This was also a year that we grew innovative new programs, such as our farmworker program which we are running in partnership with Ventura County foodbank, that allows us to help the workers who do so much to help our county – with food and food literacy education,” continued Talkin.

The event was attended by about 130 guests who raised around $500,000 towards the $16.5 million cost of a new 57,000-square-foot warehouse called “Sharehouse.”

Carmen Jones A Sexy,



ALL THE ENERGY AND CHARM OF A HAMMERSTEIN MUSICAL against the stunning operatic backdrop of Bizet’s iconic Carmen, Ensemble Theatre Company’s Carmen Jones sets a high bar for the company’s 2022-23 season. A stripped-down version of the Broadway musical, Carmen Jones’ ten-actor cast demonstrates powerful vocal storytelling skills to transport audiences to a World War II-era African American community. The result is a vibrant tour de force that emphasizes the opera’s timeless themes of love, hope, and loss. Performances run through October 23rd at The New Vic Theater.

At its core, Carmen Jones is American theater legend Oscar Hammerstein II’s modernization of the opera Carmen. Yet when viewed through a historical lens, the musical takes on greater significance. As ETC dramaturgist Anna Jensen explains in the production’s program notes, Oscar Hammerstein opened Carmen Jones on Broadway in 1943 with a cast of over 100 African American actors. By setting the play within a parachute factory, Hammerstein pushed back against racism and highlighted

the increasing ways Black Americans were supporting the war effort.

As the titular heroine, Fredericka Meek drives Carmen Jones’ spirit with a playful passion, deftly alternating between moments of coy flirtation and deadly seriousness. The musical follows Carmen as she pursues, wins over, and ultimately rejects Joe (Chauncey Packer), who devolves from an ambitious soldier into a desperate, obsessive man. Packer accomplishes this transformation by gradually building up to an emotional crescendo, his resounding voice reflecting Joe’s internal turmoil in a series of commanding solos. The cast’s individual and collective vocal talents remind viewers that Carmen Jones’ roots lie in opera. Troy D. Wallace delivers a stand-out performance as Carmen’s lover, the boxer Husky Miller, singing Stan’ Up An’ Fight with motivating intensity. As Cindy Lou, Joe’s hometown sweetheart, Zelda Carmen carries all the grief of unrequited love with her poignant yet powerful voice.

Rounding out the musical’s phenomenal numbers is a strong supporting cast, including Michael Howard-Dossett as the authoritative Sergeant Brown, and Constance Jewell Lopez, who sings a lively rendition of Beat Out Dat Rhythm On A Drum. Together, the cast’s

seamless chemistry helps the play shift from high energy to quiet intimacy.

An ever-present band visible through a screened loft above the stage fuels the production’s beautiful score and minimalist style. Conducted by music director William Foster McDaniel, the band — featuring just clarinet, flute, piano, cello, and two violins — captures the essential beauty of Bizet’s score. The constant presence of the musicians’ silhouettes places the music in a starring role and enhances the set’s straightforward charm.

Designed by François-Pierre Couture, the set features a two-level scaffold framed

with frosted windows, with only the rotation of tables, chairs, and other props to indicate scene changes. Lighting plays a key element, as different types of lamps descend from the ceiling and a backdrop screen provides colorful mood lighting. The effect is an understated stage that centers all focus on the actors and music.

Add period-accurate costuming by Alex Jaeger and animated choreography by Lisa Ruffin, and Carmen Jones provides a gorgeous, bold production sure to please opera and musical fans alike.

GROWTH IS SLOWING, but is it enough to call off the inflation hawks, including the Federal Reserve Governors, from wanting more rate hikes?

The U.S. Economy is still fully employed for those wanting to work; with a historically low 3.5 percent unemployment rate, 263,000 nonfarm payroll jobs, and hourly wages rising at five percent in September’s unemployment report.

It was the smallest jobs gain in 17 months, and we are back to pre-pandemic levels of employment, but inflation is still high because of the Ukraine War and a shortage of goods and services. The so-called supply-chain shortages really mean there is still a worldwide supply shortage, though now there are now plenty of trucks, ships, and planes to deliver them.

such inflationary spikes, and they all pretty much behave the same, regardless of monetary policy.

His graph shows that inflation spikes have come down as fast as they rose. Paulsen maintains this is therefore an excellent buying opportunity for investors because it’s now possible to predict approximately when the inflation surge ends and interest rates decline, which tend to follow inflation trends.

An inflation surge usually takes approximately 12 months to end, so since this inflation peaked in March-April 2022, we should see inflation returning to a normal range by next March-April 2023.

And he sees inflation already subsiding:

Energy prices are down sharply. West Texas

Intermediate crude prices CL.1, 3.36 percent are down 30 percent from June. A gallon of gasoline has fallen 23 percent since peaking in the same month. Energy is central to the economy, so its price has a big impact on the prices of almost everything. Plus, there is a psychological angle.

director of multifamily analytics.

Retailers are slashing prices to clear excess inventory. Target TGT, -1.96 percent grabbed headlines in early June when it reported it will have to cut prices to clear inventories. Nike NKE, -2.27 percent followed suit last week. Those two are not alone in over-ordering merchandise, expecting the pandemic-induced consumer preference for goods over services to continue. This inventory clearing will show up in headline inflation numbers soon.

Supply chains are improving. Recent Fed surveys show that inventories are rising and delivery times are falling. Freight rates are down by one-third from recent highs. Monday’s Institute for Supply Management manufacturing business survey confirmed that order backlogs fell by 2.1 percentage points compared to August. Inventories also rose, indicating an easing of supply chain congestion.

Consumer surveys already show consumers becoming more confident about their future with inflation expections now below three percent over the next five years.

Almost all business sectors continued hiring, and people continued to travel and dine out in large numbers, as hotel, restaurants, and other companies in the hospitality business created 83,000 new jobs, reflecting strong demand for services such as travel and recreation.

Hiring also rose sharply in health care and professional businesses. Manufacturers added 22,000 jobs and construction firms hired 19,000 people.

All this activity is keeping prices from falling fast enough to please the hawks, but do we even have much choice in the matter? Noted market strategist Jim Paulsen of the Leuthold Group has done research on the history of

Commodity prices are falling fast. The S&P Goldman Sachs Commodity Price index is down over 20 percent from its early June peak. Copper, steel, and aluminum prices have fallen 31 percent to 48 percent since March. These are basic building blocks in the economy that go unfollowed. But the price declines are feeding through to headline inflation.

Rents are now dropping. A big concern is that services inflation is hot. That’s driven to a large degree by rents, which are rolling over. Follow updates from CoStar Group CSGP, -1.89 percent, a great source of data on real estate trends and analytics. “We’re seeing a complete reversal of market conditions in just 12 months, going from demand significantly outstripping available units to new deliveries outpacing lackluster demand,” says Jay Lybik, CoStar’s

This should be enough to convince inflation hawks to ease up on their inflation fears, and the Fed to pause and see what the holidays bring. Consumers and businesses seem to be tolerating the moderate Fed rate hikes to date. And there’s no hurry to reverse course, unless prices begin more dramatic declines leading to outright deflation, which would mean a recession. Why not show some patience, Chairman Powell, as consumers seem to be doing and enjoy the holidays!

Prayer Flags & A Tale of Longing Artistic, Personal Reflection



holding a tender reflection on a natural element, Prayer Flags & A Tale of Longing by local artist Mary Heebner provides a thoughtful viewing experience. On view at the Architectural Foundation of Santa Barbara Gallery through November 5th, the exhibition serves at once as a creative study of our shared environment and a personal travel account.

Composed of three books and a collage series, the exhibition demonstrates Heebner’s skill as a maker of artist’s books, which she publishes under the label simplemente maria press. Strung on a gold ribbon, Prayer Flags calls for increased environmental appreciation and care through its handwritten text and inkprinted designs.

“It’s a lament, as well as a prayer or an invocation, and also a celebration of the love for the air we breathe, the water that is such a perfect cycle,” explained Heebner.

Penned in cursive, Heebner’s prayers gently examine how we understand each of the elements, highlighting her skills as a poetic writer as well as a visual artist. References to climate change and pollution reinforce the need for action as well as awareness, tenderly motivating viewers.

In traditional Tibetan culture, prayer flags must be hung outside where their printed prayers can be carried by the wind, sharing peace, compassion, and positivity. Their different colors signify different natural elements, with fading colors considered to be a sign that the prayers have been spread. Historically steeped in the religious practices of Bon and Buddhism, individuals should maintain positive, selfless mindsets while hanging the flags.

By creating her variation of prayer flags, Heebner explained that her intentions were not to co-opt Tibetan culture, but rather to reflect her appreciation for the region and connect it to her personal experiences.

“How do you respectfully take in another person’s way of seeing the world as much as you can understand?” asked Heebner. “That is, to me, an act of bridging rather than building walls.”

Prayer Flags & A Tale of Longing is the culmination of 30 years of work. Its inspiration sparks from Heebner’s travels to Sikkim, India, in the 1990s, where she was first introduced to Tibetan prayer flags. Struck by their beauty, she faithfully recorded her experiences observing a monk using wooden blocks to create the flags.

It wasn’t until the COVID-19 pandemic, though, that Heebner revisited those writings. In response, she began to ask herself what people long for when they travel, and how places impact individuals. Simultaneously, she reflected on the natural elements that unite us and the threats of climate change. Gradually, Prayer Flags & A Tale of Longing was born, with Heebner learning more about Tibetan culture from her daughter, Sienna, who works as an anthropologist in historically Tibetan regions.

Upon entering the gallery, viewers immediately observe Prayer Flags strung across the walls. The double-sided pages feature ink prints, handmade paper pulp paintings, and accompanying prayers for five elements: earth, air, fire, water, and aether (or consciousness).

A spiral-bound notebook titled A Tale of Longing provides context, chronicling Heebner’s visit to the Rumtek Monastery in Sikkim. Its handwritten pages are displayed beside Prayer Flags, boasting delicate ink drawing illustrations.

The third book, Elemental Offerings, contains the same texts as Prayer Flags, collecting them into a hand-sewn booklet. This provides a more affordable option for viewers who want to purchase one of Heebner’s books, and comes with a small flag banner.

A series of paper collages complete the exhibition, featuring rich watercolor swirls of purple, black, yellow, and white. Titled Equivalents, Heebner created the collages after watching monks dance in Sikkim, abstracting their movements and connecting them to the music of Thelonius Monk.

“I hope viewers take enough time to read some of the text and to meditate on what it might mean for them; thinking about what is water to you?” added Heebner. “I want it to be beautiful... but I also want it to provoke some thought and some sense of, ‘what are we doing here?’ ‘Where are we going?’”

Community members are invited to join Heebner for an artist talk from 2 to 3pm on Saturday, October 22nd. Attendance is free, and reservations are required. Email molly@afsb.org or call 805-965-6307.

Arturo Tello & John Wullbrandt Dos Arbolitos Exhibition

Dos Arbolitos

Two small trees have grown tall to stand among the mighty Oak Group. Co-Foundering member Arturo Tello has been joined by his friend and fellow painter John Wullbrandt to share selected paintings that illustrate their passion for our environment. Both artists have deep roots in local land preservation and conservation efforts. The mutual support they enjoy has been recognized by Santa Barbara Fine Art Gallery with this two person exhibition.
