New Santa Barbara Park Regulations

Updated Park Hours, Playground Rules, and Guidance on Use of Portable Barbecues Aim to Make Local Parks Safer and More Enjoyable for All


ANS OF CITY OF SANTA BARBARA PARKS now need to keep a few new rules in mind when visiting City parks. All meant to “make local parks safer and more enjoyable places to recreate,” the changes to the Santa Barbara Municipal Code, were approved last month by the City Council to put consistent park hours in place, protect playgrounds as safe children’s play areas, and provide guidance on the use of portable barbecues in City parks. “These changes are something we considered carefully, and we took into account feedback from the public when drafting the ordinance,” said Parks and Recreation Director Jill Zachary. “You won’t have to wonder when a park is open, because they all close at the same time now – a half hour after sunset. There are clear rules about who should be using designated children’s play areas, such as any of our 22 City playgrounds. And we created a simple standard so picnickers will know where they can use portable barbecues. Overall, the new rules are clear and consistent, and they should minimize confusion for everyone who enjoys using our parks.” Park Hours: Beginning October 17th, all parks – with a few exceptions – are open to the public from sunrise to a half

hour after sunset. Sunrise and sunset on any particular day is as determined by the National Weather Service, making it easy to check online when planning a visit to the park. The three parks that are exceptions to this rule are: Skofield Park, Franceschi Park, and Hilda McIntyre Ray Park. All have caretakers living on site, so gates will open in those three parks at 8am and close, as with all other parks, at a half hour after sunset. Other exceptions will still be made for permitted special events, recreational activities, and rentals. For instance, areas with lighted sports fields, such as Cabrillo Ball Park, Dwight Murphy Field, Pershing Park, and the Municipal Tennis Courts, may be open after dark for approved activities. Playground Use: Adults (18 and older) are only allowed to enter City playgrounds when accompanying a child 12 or younger. An exception to this rule is if an adult is accompanying a person aged 13 years and older with special needs. Establishing rules limiting access to playgrounds by adults maximizes the usability of the equipment by children, reduces wear and tear, increases the longevity of the equipment, and supports safe play conditions.

Portable Barbecues: To provide safe and well maintained amenities for visitors, new guidelines for portable barbecues and camp stove usage have been established. Portable barbeques and camp stoves that are self-contained, enclosed with a lid, and raised at least six inches off a surface may be used at any park picnic table or on a City beach. The exception is Parma Park, which does have a picnic area, but portable barbecues are not allowed in the park due to high wildfire danger. Barbecue users must remove hot coals and ash from the park, unless a hot coal disposal receptacle is provided. Currently, three parks have hot coal disposal receptacles: Oak Park, Shoreline Beach Park, and Leadbetter Beach Park. To stay informed about this and other Parks and Recreation Department initiatives, sign up for the email list at bit.ly/LoveParksAndRec and follow the Department on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. The City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department maintains a wide range of parks, facilities, and programs designed to serve community needs. The Department’s mission is to provide clean and safe parks, beaches, and recreation facilities; to enhance Santa Barbara’s beauty; to promote stewardship of resources; and to provide quality recreation, cultural experiences, and community services to improve quality of life for Santa Barbara residents.

Día de los Muertos Opens Hearts and Doors By David Selberg, CEO Hospice of SB


ÍA DE LOS MUERTOS, celebrated this year from October 31st to November 2nd, is a traditional Latin American celebration that honors those who have died by creating colorful altars where offerings such as bread, sugar skulls, figurines, candles, incense, yellow marigolds, and photos are placed. Offerings are often very personal, such as photographs of the deceased and their favorite food items, beverages, and flowers. Many human service organizations in Santa Barbara face challenges when attempting to reach the Spanish-speaking/ Latino population. Our Spanish speaking population, many of Mexican heritage, David Selberg, approach death and CEO Hospice of SB grieving in very different ways and it was important for Hospice of Santa Barbara to be sensitive and knowledgeable about these differences. In the early 2000s, we utilized Día de Los Muertos as a unique entrée into these communities. Hospice of Santa Barbara reached out to the Parish Nurse community, which was critical to our linking with local Catholic churches. We were invited into some of the larger churches with significant populations of Latinos and Spanish speakers, such as Our Lady of Sorrows, Our Lady of Guadalupe and Saint Josephs in Carpinteria. Parish Nurses helped us communicate to the congregation about our free services for the dying and for the bereaved. We learned a lot in the process such as: many in this population grieve very privately, communicate in more subtle ways about death and often seek the guidance of the church. In many cases, it was not appropriate for these families to come to our offices, so we went to them. We built Día de los Muertos altars alongside parishioners at their churches and more recently have created one of our own at our offices on the Riviera. We also had Spanish speaking staff on Spanish language radio and TV to communicate that our services were available in Spanish. Over the years our relationship with Latinos/ Spanish speakers has grown tremendously by being present in their communities and sharing

Día de los Muertos abre corazones y puertas

our Hospice of Santa Barbara information in Spanish language publications and over the Spanish-speaking airways. Today, I am proud to say that Hospice of Santa Barbara’s offers the full and extensive range of its free services in Spanish: free counseling for adults and children, Patient Care Services for patients and families in which a member is facing a life-threatening illness, and support groups and education to help Spanish-speaking adults, teens, and children cope with the death of a loved one. Hospice of Santa Barbara now has eight full-time Spanish-speaking employees across all our services. As a result, in 2018 we served 698 Latinos (mostly Spanish speaking), including 188 children. Since our founding in 1974, our goal has been to serve all the children, teenagers, and families of our community with free, compassionate, and practical care. Over the years we have strived to make that an increasing reality among all people. We are already seeing the profound difference this is making in the lives of more and more families. Not surprisingly, we’ve also embraced many of the Latino cultural approaches to dying and grieving the death of a loved one for all our programs and services. We have learned a great deal in the process. Hospice of Santa Barbara will be creating a Día de los Muertos altar in our lobby starting this week. Those in our community, including staff, patients and clients are welcome to display a photograph or special memory item in honor of a loved one on our altar.  For more information about any of our services visit www.hospiceofsantabarbara.org. Be well,

David Selberg CEO, Hospice of SB

ÍA DE LOS MUERTOS, celebrado este año del 31 de octubre al 2 de noviembre, es una celebración tradicional latinoamericana que honra a los que han muerto creando coloridos altares donde se colocan ofrendas como pan, calaveras de azúcar, figuras, velas, incienso, la flor de cempasúchil y fotos. Las ofrendas suelen ser muy personales, como fotografías de los fallecidos y sus comidas, bebidas y flores favoritos. Muchas organizaciones de servicios humanos en Santa Bárbara enfrentan desafíos cuando intentan llegar a la población hispanohablante / latina. Nuestra población de habla hispana, principalmente de herencia mexicana, aborda la muerte y el duelo de maneras muy diferentes y fue importante para Hospice of Santa Barbara ser sensible y conocer estas diferencias. A principios de la década de 2000, utilizamos el Día de los Muertos para nuestra ventaja, ya que nos dio una entrada única en estas comunidades. El Hospice of Santa Barbara se comunicó con la comunidad de Enfermeras de la parroquia, lo cual fue fundamental para nuestro vínculo con las iglesias católicas locales. Fuimos invitados a algunas de las iglesias más grandes con poblaciones significativas de latinos y hispanohablantes, como Nuestra Señora de los Dolores, Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe y San José en Carpinteria. Las Enfermeras de la parroquia nos ayudaron a informarles a la congregación acerca de nuestros servicios gratuitos para los moribundos y los afligidos. Aprendimos mucho en este proceso, como muchos en esta población lloran de manera muy privada, se comunican de manera más sutil sobre la muerte y, a menudo, buscan la guía de la iglesia. En muchos casos, no era apropiado que estas familias vinieran a nuestras oficinas, así que fuimos a ellas. Construimos altares del Día de los Muertos junto a feligreses en sus iglesias y más recientemente hemos creado uno propio en nuestras oficinas en la Riviera. También contamos con personal de habla hispana en la

radio y televisión en español para informarles que nuestros servicios estaban disponibles en español. Con los años, nuestra relación con latinos / hispanohablantes ha crecido enormemente al estar presente en sus comunidades y al compartir nuestra información sobre Hospice of Santa Bárbara en publicaciones en español y en las vías aéreas de habla hispana. Hoy, estoy orgulloso de decir que Hospice of Santa Bárbara ofrece la gama más completa y extensa de sus servicios gratuitos en español: asesoramiento gratuito para adultos y niños, servicios de atención al paciente para pacientes y familias en los que un miembro enfrenta una enfermedad potencialmente mortal, y grupos de apoyo y educación para ayudar a adultos, adolescentes y niños hispanohablantes a sobrellevar la muerte de un ser querido. Hospice of Santa Bárbara ahora tiene ocho empleados de habla hispana de tiempo completo a través de todos nuestros servicios. Como resultado, en 2018 atendimos a 698 latinos (en su mayoría hispanohablantes), incluyendo a 188 niños. Desde nuestra fundación en 1974, nuestro objetivo ha sido servir a todos los niños, adolescentes y familias de nuestra comunidad con atención gratuita, compasiva y práctica. Con los años nos hemos esforzado por hacer de eso una realidad cada vez mayor para todas las personas. Me enorgullece decir que ahora podemos ofrecer a las familias de habla hispana nuestra gama completa de servicios. Ya estamos viendo la profunda diferencia que esto está haciendo en la vida de más y más familias. No es sorprendente ®® que también hayamos adoptado muchos de los enfoques culturales latinos para morir y llorar la muerte de un ser querido en todos nuestros programas y servicios. Hemos aprendido mucho en el proceso. Hospice of Santa Barbara creará un altar del Día de los Muertos en nuestro lobby a partir de esta semana.

Coast General Insurance Announces Acquisition Coast General Insurance Brokers is expanding again. The Oxnard-based company announces it has acquired the life and health book of business from Carpinteria-based Burch Insurance Services. Burch Insurance Services was in business in Carpinteria for 26 years before the recent acquisition by Coast General, which took place under the direction of Coast General’s president, Brenda Allison. It’s the latest in a series of expansion efforts for Coast General. Earlier this year, the company acquired Global Peak Insurance Agency, based in Rancho Cucamonga, and expanded its services from Ventura County east, into San Bernardino and Los Angeles counties. “Each acquisition has been creatively custom-made to preserve and honor the legacy of each seller,” Allison said. In the previous acquisition, Allison brought on board Max Haghighi, RHU, CIA, CLCS, who had led Global Peak. Heading the San Bernardino County office, Haghighi brought along more than 20 years of insurance experience including a background with insurance carriers as well as owning and managing insurance agencies. The acquisition of Burch Insurance Services life and health book will help to broaden Coast General’s tri-counties Brenda Allison reach up the Central Coast, into San Luis Obispo County and Santa Barbara County, where Carpinteria is located, about 25 miles north of Oxnard. Coast General is an insurance brokerage firm that partners with business clients to manage their risk as their businesses evolve. Coast General matches strategic insurance products and loss control to help mitigate claims, and has dedicated teams for commercial insurance as well as health and wellness benefits for any size company. Allison has a Bachelor of Science degree in urban and public affairs and a Master of Business Administration in marketing. She earned her Health Insurance Professional (HIP) designation in 2010 and her Agribusiness and Farm Insurance Specialist (AFIS) designation in 2011. Coast General Insurance Brokers’ main office is located at 2775 N. Ventura Road, Suite 209, in Oxnard.

Symphony Family Celebrates 66th Season Opening


AMILY STYLE ITALIANO, an exquisite meal in the Miller McCune Founders Room was the warm and friendly beginning for the Santa Barbara Symphony’s 66th season titled Festa Italiana, with Anne Smith Towbes, Honorary Board Member, the host at the pre-concert gathering. “We wanted to introduce this new concept about symphony supporters being a family and Nir suggested we have a meal focused on Italian Music… Everyone said, ‘That’s perfect,’ then Anne said, ‘Let’s make it family style.’ And here we are sitting down together,” stated Kevin Marvin, President and CEO of the Symphony, as he welcomed guests to the event. Individual service and passing platters of Italian food around the table, created a memorable family atmosphere, with Chef Renato of Via Maestra 42 1 personally serving guests. Joined by Maestro Nir Kabaretti, Marvin celebrated and honored three board members into a new group called Board member Emeritus: Patricia Gregory, Gillian Launie, and Arthur Swalley. Several Honorary Board Members were also honored for their service and named including: David Chernof, Jim Franzen, Natalie Myerson, Marilynn Sullivan, and Anne Smith Towbes.

Santa Barbara Symphony - Review

Festa Italiana – molto bello!


By Daniel Kepl / VOICE

RE-CURTAIN CHAMPAGNE flowed generously, the opening night crowd buzzed in happy fraternity, even the orchestra looked younger at last Saturday night’s launch of the first pair of weekend concerts at the Granada Theatre to open the Santa Barbara Symphony’s 2019-2020 season, it’s 66th. The ensemble’s affable maestro, Nir Kabaretti had assembled a program – Festa Italiana! – which erred cheerfully on the side of pure entertainment. Verdi’s Overture to La Forza del Destino; Nicòlo Paganini’s insanely fun and hugely difficult Violin Concerto No. 1 in D Major, Op. 6 with Italian virtuosa Francesca Dego, and after intermission, Mendelssohn’s puckish take on the Italians, his Symphony No. 4 in A Major, Op. 90 (Italian) and Tchaikovsky’s magnificently Italo-czarist Capriccio Italien, Op. 45. Conducting entirely from memory with the exception of the Paganini concerto – a field of landmines for soloist and conductor alike requiring a good road map – Kabaretti opened the program with a complicated comfort piece, the Overture to Guiseppe Verdi’s 1862 opera La Forza del Destino. Audience members not aware previously of Kabaretti’s extensive and continuing conducting career at the opera houses of Rome, Milan, Florence, and elsewhere around the world, were set straight immediately as the maestro wasted no time and spared not the rod in leading a taught, authoritative, stylish, moody, fast, and furious performance. The orchestra, God bless them one and all, followed Kabaretti’s gutsy tempi, navigating the composer’s sometimes nightmarish avalanches of notes with an aplomb bred of their own extensive professional experience; the cherished war horse snorted fire and popped with energy. Nice, very nice. In 2008 London-based violinist Francesca Dego became the first Italian female prize-winner at the Genoa Paganini Competition. She hasn’t looked back since. Her violin, a Francesco Ruggeri (Cremona 1697) produces an intoxicatingly rich tone and because of its extraordinary sonority, also enables a wide range of colors that facilitate the encyclopedic cornucopia of fiddle effects and affectations that were Niccolò Paganini’s (1782-1840) calling card and earned him the adoration of audiences throughout Europe as the most celebrated violin virtuoso

of his time. The three movements of his Violin Concerto No. 1 are among the most difficult solo challenges in the repertoire. Essentially one gigantic cadenza, the concerto is chock-o-block with episodes and asides, a baker’s dozen at least of finger-twisting double stops, harmonics, spicatti, pizzicati, and other visually dazzling bow and fingering effects meant to blow the minds of listeners and warn lesser talents to stay away. Dego played the concerto with consistently perfect intonation and spectacular technical wizardry. Kabaretti and the orchestra accompanied adroitly. For encore Dego offered nothing less than the B-flat Major Caprice No. 13 (Devil’s Laughter). Santa Barbara Symphony Principal Cello Trevor Handy opened the second half of the program with a lovely tribute to cellist Geoffrey Rutkowski, Principal Cello of the orchestra from 1968 to 2011, who passed in July. An elegantly simple performance by Handy of the Sarabande from Bach’s Cello Suite No. 1 gave those many in the audience who knew Geoff an opportunity to reflect before a high-octane performance of Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4 in A Major (Italian). The orchestra has a fresh, younger look this season after a summer of auditions and placements. An important aspect of maestro Kabaretti’s job description is to continually elevate the standard of the orchestra’s personnel and the new hires for 2019-2020 did not disappoint, making their presence and virtuosity known immediately, with a sublimely effortless and fleet-footed performance of Mendelssohn’s sunny masterpiece. Topping off the evening was Tchaikovsky’s Capriccio Italien, Op. 45 in a razzle-dazzle reading that found all sections of the orchestra – strings, winds, brass and percussion – in excellent voice. Without compromise, Kabaretti pushed tempi, shaped imagery, and forged narratives of sound that quickened the pulse and pumped 8 up expectations for the season ahead. Sending everyone home with an Italian standard that says it all, was a magnificent arrangement of Funiculì Funiculà.

Altars for Remembrance & Sugar Skulls For Fun


FFERINGS ON THE ALTARS, ALEBRIJES (SPIRIT ANIMALS), SUGAR SKULLS, AND MARIGOLDS are at the center of Día de los Muertos or Day of the Dead, a colorful Mexican tradition that translates to a celebration of life in the United States. Rather than mourn their loved ones, Latin American countries honor those who have passed by remembering the lives they led and the things they enjoyed during life every year on November 1st and 2nd. Folklore tells us that on midnight, October 31st, the gates of heaven open to the souls of deceased children and they are allowed back to earth to reunite with their families

for one day. The next day, November 2nd, the souls of deceased adults are allowed to visit. This tradition can be traced back to the Aztec people over 3,000 years ago and continues through to Mexican culture today. In an effort to embrace our Latin American neighbors and their tradition, Santa Barbarans will celebrate Día de los Muertos along with the U.S. tradition of Halloween with an array of festivities over the next couple of weeks. You can take part in this special tradition by participating in one or more of the events throughout the city. There is something for everyone to enjoy.

T THE RISK OF SOUNDING LIKE A BROKEN RECORD, a trip down to Marina One to visit the Maiden and her crew of 12 ladies has set me on LP (long playing) for yet another round! There is no way to properly communicate how awesome that yacht, it’s history, The Maiden Factor Foundation, and its mission is in today’s world. Hopefully many of you will have had the same wonderful experience visiting the 58 foot Farr designed craft on October 13th and 14th. When I arrived at Marina One where the Maiden was located, the dock was lined with visitors such as myself. Many of the female crew were present and in the process of welcoming an assortment of guests which, I’m happy to say, included a group of teens and their mentors and parents. After spotting the pink rimmed helm, I was greeted by a crew member who had a T-shirt that displayed The Maiden Factor’s logo on the front, and a foreshortened version of its mission on the back. Unfortunately I failed to get her name before she turned to greet other guests, but her words still resonate. “It’s important to remember that the original Maiden inspired a whole generation of women… the purpose of today’s Maiden is to raise funds and create an awareness of girl’s education world wide and equal human rights for generations to come.” After the 1989-90 Whitehead Around the World Yacht Race, Tracy Edwards who skippered the Maiden into the history books with an her female crew was forced to sell the yacht. For many years it had been missing, but in 2014 the Maiden was discovered languishing in disrepair in a port on the Indian Ocean. Edwards began a campaign to rescue and restore her to her former beauty and once again the late king’s daughter, HRH Princess Haya Blint Al Hussein of Jordan, helped make the project a reality, and The Maiden Factor was born! The mission of The Maiden Factor, under whose umbrella the present day Maiden has embarked on it’s two year round the world tour, is to empower and educate girls to meet their full potential. In partnership with charities such as The Girl’s Network, Room to Read, the Orchid Project, I am Girl, and others, it has become a worldwide project. The Maiden Factor and its partner charities can have a greater impact educationally, socially, and environmentally collectively. I have to tell you that this was quite an experience for me and I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to visit this iconic yacht. Thank you, Maiden, for stopping here! As long as I’m bragging about girls, let me include one of Santa Barbara’s very own adventurous trend setters, 16 year old athlete and environmentalist Paige Kieding. Born into a seagoing family, (daughter of Ken and Krista Kieding), Paige takes to the water like a fish – and continues to prove it. Earlier this month Paige jumped into the icy waters at 3am near Anacapa Island to swim the 12.4 miles across the Channel to Oxnard in just over seven hours. Not only that, but it was her seventh open water swim, the first being at 13 years old from Alcatraz Island to San Francisco. How’s that for a dip in the Bay? As Paige explained to Coastal View, “I feel so lucky to be able to spend time in the ocean almost every day, and it’s so, so important to me that we do everything in our power to protect and conserve it.” Her mission is to help raise funds for Santa Barbara Channelkeeper. In closing all I can say is, “You GO, Girlfriends!” Paige Kieding

LAYING GAMES OF WHICH ELEVATOR BUTTON TO PUSH as some of us were going down and some up to the rooftop of the Canary Hotel, I was admiring one very chic woman in our crowded elevator and realized the very chic woman in black and merlot was Joyce Dudley our District Attorney. She was with Patrick Clouse, Chief Investigator. Conversation was rather limited to someone shouting “I want two!” or “Let me off at lobby...” The District Attorney was trying to get to the garage and we were trying to get to the roof, but we all made it. It is impossible to think of a lovelier setting than the Canary rooftop at sundown with a sky displaying the most incredible assortment of clouds. The occasion was Hospice of Santa Barbara staff, donors, and board members being honored at a fall cocktail party. Officially they were celebrating the group’s Shining Light Society. Well, the splendid sky certainly was the backdrop for a Shining Light event! The Shining Light Society of Hospice of Santa Barbara provides a whole person approach that is grounded in the belief that Anita Balboa, Linda Cherish, and Judy Goodbody supportive human relationsips are the best way to help those suffering from a threatening illness or grieving the loss of a loved one. The wish is to improve their clients’ quality of life by providing deeply personal psychological, practical, and spiritual support to meet their personal needs. We almost all know people whose lives have been touched in some way by Hospice. It was hard to tear myself away from the view up there, but I certainly did when I ran into the late Stuart Taylor’s daughter Gwen. She was a little girl when I used to see her. She’s not a little girl anymore. Stuart Taylor was the most wonderful man! When his uncle Robert McLean bought the then Pulitzer Prize winning newspaper Santa Barbara News-Press, Stuart became the publisher. What a joy he was to work with! At one point I was ready to give up my column By the Way, convinced I didn’t know how to write. I was a student of Italian Renaissance painting not writing, and went whining to Stu with my complaint, who replied, “But you certainly know how to talk, so just keep talking to your typewriter!” And I still do, except Charles Caldwell, Dana Caldwell, and Dan Crawford, it’s a computer now. Both he and Gwen’s who had us roaring with laughter over his experience mother were wonderful friends. with uni ice cream the night before From the Canary Hotel we headed over to the Marjorie Luke Theatre all excited about attending Rod Lathim’s exciting evening of Julia Louis-Dreyfus and husband Brad Hall plus a film about Julia’s father. We’d just settled into our comfortable seats and were about 15 minutes into the film when I realized I belonged home in bed where I had been for four days. My enthusiasm for these events had overpowered my common sense! Why I was in bed, I definitely am going to share with you, as it could happen to you. Without thinking sensibly or at all, at the same time I had two vaccinations, flu in one arm and pneumonia in the other. They should have been done on separate days. And I suffered the most horrendous reaction! It was practically a 911 situation, not just the usual sore arm and chills. So sadly, we had to slip out and miss what I hear was a great evening. Among the guests enjoying the lovely setting were Dawn Sebroldes, Chaly Puyot, Marybeth Carty, and sister Geri Carty who just happen to be married to two Carty brothers. At least no problems with changing Me and David Selberg, CEO Hospice of Santa Barbara monograms for them! Beverley Jackson moved to SB in 1963 from Los Angeles. She wrote a social column for the SB News-Press from 1968-1992. She also wrote the award winning book Splendid Slippers on Chinese footbinding and five other books on China. She latest book is Dolls of Spain. Jackson is avid doll collector and a collector of interesting people. She is also now seriously making and exhibiting pine needle baskets and collage.

HEN MY FIRST BOOK WAS PUBLISHED IN 2010, a friend said, “You must be getting big-headed,” which seemed cosmically false. I’d walked away from a 40 year career, a marriage walked away from me; houses, money, friends, health insurance, identity, confidence— vanished. I spent three years writing about an abandoned jackass named “Beso.” A few cracked, “Obviously an autobiography.” I thought they’d throw a net over me as I fell into a mapless existential abyss. Maybe there was something to celebrate about the book, but with a twist impossible to explain, a fear I had committed malpractice against the donkey—I have drawn a circle around by Beso / by thinking ‘You are a donkey, here.’ / He steps out of it freely and could I follow? It was troubling but oddly correct. Poet Tomas Tranströmer, 2011 Nobel Laureate for Literature, wrote— The strait has become eccentric—swarming with jellyfish today for the first time in years, they pump themselves forward calmly and patiently, they belong to the same line: ‘Aurelia,’ they drift like flowers after a sea burial, if you take them out of the water their entire form vanishes, as when an indescribable truth is lifted out of silence and formulated into an inert mass, but they are untranslatable, they must stay in their own element. In a lucky letter Jane Hirshfield said—“You and Jack Gilbert work hard at writing. I don’t think I’m a writer—poems just seem to come like mushrooms in the night.” Jane spent years in formal zen training after graduating from Princeton, forbidden to write, and ordained in 1979. Sitting in meditation those years, I think she became the mushroom itself—nourished by a source her tendrils seek naturally, insatiably, beyond logic’s words. Dan Gerber, also an ordained zen monk, once said to me, “Your problem is that you write poems, better to make of yourself a

place for them to arrive.” From Jane’s poem, Metempsychosis— In Borneo, there are palm trees that walk on their high roots. Slowly, with effort, they lift one leg then another. I would like to join that stilted migration, to feel my own skin vertical as theirs: an ant road, a highway for beetles. I would like not minding, whatever travels my heart. To follow it all the way into leaf-form, bark-furl, root-touch, and then keep walking unimaginably further. One of William Merwin’s many gifts, he passed last March 15th, was to acknowledge the impossible and then somehow achieve it— What The Bridges Hear Even the right words if ever we come to them tell of something the words never knew celestia for starlight or starlight for starlight so at this moment there may be words somewhere among the nebulae for the two bridges across the wide rock-strewn river part way around the bend from each other in the winter sunlight late in the afternoon more than half a century ago with the sound of the water rushing under them and passing between them unvarying and inaudible it is still there so is the late sunlight of that winter afternoon although the winter has vanished and the bridges are still reaching across the wide sound of being there

infinitude that sometimes winks in poetry of multiple images.” Any one of Mark’s recent paintings succeed on this level, and they sell. Any one of them is going to be the cover of my next book. Yet Mark is not content, there’s organic desperation in his seeking, and together we drink of the relentless, intoxicating, failure to grasp the divine incomplete. Yet another poem by Master Merwin comes close— Nothing that I do is finished so I keep returning to it lured by the notion that I long to see the whole of it at last completed and estranged from me but no the unfinished is what I return to as it leads me on I am made whole by what has just escaped me as it always does I am made of incompleteness the words are not there in words oh gossamer gossamer breath moment daylight life untouchable by no name with no beginning what do we think we recognize I am forever charmed by Master Tranströmer’s lines— From The Outpost I flit over warm moments but can’t stop for long. They’re whistling me back through space— I crawl out from the stones. Here and now. Mission: to be where I am. Even in that ridiculous, deadly serious role—I am the place where creation is working itself out.

Artists have their knowings and for some reason are driven to attempt bringing them into form. My beloved friend and collaborator, Mark Russell Jones (markrusselljones.com), is the finest painter I have ever encountered. I’ve made tapes of my responses to his paintings such as, “At the last Mark Rothko was painting the underlid of his coffin. Jones paints the vault of heaven and what’s on the other side at the infinitely unfolding moment of primal creation. His paintings are the generative gaze itself examining your experience of The Creation as it carries you and him unimaginably further. There are infinite layers of existence in his paintings which alter and reveal as light moves across the canvas or linen. Only in Francis Bacon and the finer Impressionists have I seen this ability to create on a flat surface the

Housing Construction Holding Up By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE


RIVATELY-OWNED HOUSING STARTS IN SEPTEMBER were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,256,000. This is 9.4 percent below the revised August estimate of 1,386,000, but is 1.6 percent above the September 2018 rate of 1,236,000, according to the US Census Bureau. Behind the headline is a small gain, to 918,000, for single-family starts. These boost GDP growth per unit unlike multi-family starts which dropped a very sharp 28.2 percent to 338,000. The three-month average for single-family starts is up very sharply, at 901,000 for the fifth straight increase. On top of that, low mortgage rates are making for increasingly positive signals from the housing sector including a three point jump in the housing market index to a 71 level for October that easily exceeds economists’ consensus range, stated the National Association of REALTORS. Components showing the most strength are present sales and traffic where the index jumped four points to 54 for the best reading since early last year. This move perhaps offers evidence that low rates, now under four percent for conventional mortgages, are attracting new buyers, something that the housing sector, which has struggled

all year to move higher, badly needs. This report will help lift expectations for new home sales and new home permits, as well as existing-home sales. Total existing-home sales, https:// www.nar.realtor/existing-home-sales, completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, fell 2.2 percent from August to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.38 million in September. Despite the decline, overall sales are up 3.9 percent from a year ago (5.18 million in September 2018). Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist, said that despite historically low mortgage rates, sales have not commensurately increased, in part due to a low level of new housing options. “We must continue to beat the drum for more inventory,” said Yun, who has called for additional home construction for over a year. “Home prices are rising too rapidly because of the housing shortage, and this lack of inventory is preventing home sales growth potential.” Lastly, the National Association of REALTORS’ housing affordability index is up 12.6 percent YOY as of August, reports Reuter’s ICAP data research site. This is due to both rising incomes and lower interest rates, while national housing prices have slowed their rise. “Mortgage applications recently

increased 33 percent from a year ago but were down 0.2 percent from July 2019,” reported the NAR. “With improving affordability conditions, new home sales increased in August with an increase in housing starts. Homes are currently affordable due to low mortgage rates and because the job market is performing well, but home prices are currently outpacing incomes.” The REALTORS’ Housing Affordability Index calculation assumes a 20 percent down payment and a 25 percent qualifying ratio (principal and interest payment to income). A robust housing market could mitigate what is increasingly looking like a looming manufacturing recession, as I said last month. With the 30-year fixed conforming rate still as low as 3.25 percent for the most creditworthy borrowers, more homebuyers will be eligible.

16th Annual Santa Barbara Mesa Artists Studio Tour

Sometimes It’s Odd When It’s All About The Art


By Morgan Green / Special to VOICE

T SEEMS WEIRD THAT MASHING UP A MESS OF CACTUS BEETLES should have anything to do with the upcoming 16th Annual Mesa Artists Studio Tour in Santa Barbara. But for weaver Sherri West, it does. And so does printmaker Sara Woodburn’s twisting rope and stretching wet bamboo, painter Bill Hull’s slogging up to the Sierra snowpack, and Meg Ricks’ patiently waiting for copper to corrode. Each of these tasks was tackled by one of the 13 award-winning Mesa neighborhood artists who are opening their home studios to the public on November 2nd and 3rd. From 11am to 4pm both days, they’ll display and offer their latest works, and share true, if sometimes offbeat, tales about the real work of making fine art. Authenticity is a big deal for West, whose fiber artworks are nationally recognized. When she discovered cochineal beetles on desert cactus, she scraped off all she could find. Indian ancients used them to make the scarlet dye craved by 17th century Europe. So, she just had to make it and use it too. “I started experimenting. First, you squish them up, then soak them,” she said. “It took many days to create a dye, but I got some beautiful color.” Bill Hull has gone to great lengths and heights to find scenes for his landscapes. “I didn’t want to just go to the end of the road and paint there,” he explained. “You have to hike an hour or two to see the best places in the mountains. Take food bars and water, then paint as long as you can. When you get to ten or twelve thousand feet you have limited breathing. We wore little bells to ward off the bears. But it’s incredible, the lakes, waterfalls, ridges…” Bill Hull painting in the wilderness Sara Woodburn consults

history to make sure her wood-block prints are the real deal. “I often go and learn from Japanese masters. It’s a tradition to make your own buren,” she said. The tool is used to press paper against inked wood blocks. First, she dissected an old buren to see inside. Then, she reproduced it by twisting a coil of rope just so, and stretching, soaking, and tying bamboo in a particular way to make a sheath. To Japanese wood block print by Sara Woodburn use the buren, “You need two full arms, one hand on top of the other, and press down. It’s quite a Woven sculpture by Sherri West workout,” she recalled. Ricks is ”rusting” some copper. She plans to scrape off the green corrosion called verdigris for paint - “that beautiful green with lavender tones,” she shared. “The latest experiment is still in progress. It hasn’t failed—yet.” Other tour artists have oddments to share as well. Painter Ellen Yeomans, who makes papier mâché sculptures out of used teabags related, “You know the In Her Hand, painting with verdigris ‘paper’ does not compost, so I by Meg Ricks repurpose it.” A little alcohol saved one of Karin Aggeler’s abstract efforts. “I was very tired and nearly stopped painting. But I decided to have a big martini, and I kept going, later and later. The next morning I saw the painting. It worked!” she Dawn Outside Bishop by laughed. “I called it Martini Time.” Morgan Green Visitors can find the open tour studios by following the bright yellow signs from Cliff Drive or Meigs Road.

The Goddard Company Public Relations Adds Online Reputation Management to its Services As the changing world of media continues to adjust and evolve in the digital age, so does the field of public relations and marketing. No longer is a story in the local paper or on the local news the best or only way for a PR firm to serve its clients. It’s with that in mind that The Goddard Company Public Relations has added online reputation management to the cache of services it offers. “ORM is a new frontier on the wild, wild World Wide Web,” said Jennifer Goddard Combs, president of the Carpinteria-based Goddard Company, which has served the Tri-Counties and beyond for more than two decades. “It’s cutting-edge, but it’s quickly become a basic need,” Goddard Combs said. “To serve our clients properly, we must offer them the best options available to keep their names out there and to maintain their reputations, so that’s what we’re Jennifer Goddard Combs doing.” Online reputation management encompasses SEO (search engine optimization) and standard public relations, as well as monitoring services to let clients know what’s being said about them across the vast digital expanses, and strategies for responding (or not) to any news, good or bad, that may turn up. Working with her clients, Goddard Combs figures out how best to handle their ORM in combination with traditional, social media, website and other online content production. This could involve not only the creation on a regular basis of new earned-media content (i.e. free press) but perhaps paid media options (e.g. Google Adwords and social media paid promotions), as well. “With the additional services, we are now a full-service agency to help companies strategize, create, publish and distribute content that accomplishes their goals,” Goddard Combs said. “We’re proud to offer these latest solutions to our clients, and to help them navigate through a public relations world that is changing before their eyes.” The Goddard Company is located at 550 Maple St., Suite G, Carpinteria, CA 93013.
