Nigella Lawson

FROM CREATING A GREAT COOKBOOK to being named Author of the Year, Nigella Lawson’s star continues to shine... She will spend an evening in conversation about food and recipes that have shaped her life with Evan Kleiman, host of KCRW’s Good Food, at the Granada Theatre in a program presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures on November 12th, beginning at 7:30pm.

Embodying her sentiment, “You cannot truly say you live well unless you eat well,” Lawson is an iconic home chef, bestselling cookbook author, and star of countless television specials. She has also become an unstoppable and empowering force in the world of food since publishing her first cookbook, How To Eat, in 1998. She is the author of twelve bestselling books, including her latest, Cook, Eat, Repeat, and the beloved personality of a string of TV series called Nigella Bites, that first aired in 2000. Lawson was voted author of the year at the British Book Awards and Best Food Personality

at the Observer Food Monthly Awards.

In conversation with Evan Kleiman, host of KCRW’s Good Food, Lawson will recount her trajectory by way of the people and food that shaped her unique life of cooking, as well as discuss her latest book, Cook, Eat, Repeat

Nigella Lawson read Medieval and Modern Languages at Lady Margaret Hall, Oxford and went on to become deputy literary editor of The Sunday Times at the age of 26. This was followed by a successful career as a critic and op-ed columnist, writing for a range of newspapers including The Times and The Guardian.

In 1998 she published her first cookbook, How to Eat: The Pleasures and Principles of Good Food. Her books have sold over 12 million copies worldwide.

Lawson was a judge on the three seasons of The Taste, which broadcast in the U.K. and U.S. in 2013 and 2014. She has made several appearances on MasterChef Australia.

She lives in London.

Evan Kleiman, a native Los Angelena, knew she was a culinarian by the age of nine, and a geeky food scholar by 20. Food was the way she navigated the world.

Her first visit to Italy at the age of 17 changed her life. Food became linked with cultural experience and was to infect every part of her world.

Eventually Kleiman walked into a professional restaurant kitchen and found her home. She cooked first for others, then opened her own restaurant, Angeli Caffe, in 1984. By serving rustic, regional Italian food in a beautifully designed, yet casual atmosphere she created a restaurant archetype that inspired imitations all over the country. By the time her beloved restaurant closed in 2012 it was a Los Angeles institution known as much for the warmth of the welcome as for the food.

Since 1998, the radio show and podcast Good Food has been the place where Kleiman could explore every aspect of food and how it intersects with human (and sometimes animal) life. The show airs on KCRW, an NPR station in Southern California, and has a worldwide audience on the web.

Pre-signed copies of Lawson’s books will be available for purchase at the event, courtesy of Chaucer’s Books.

Ortega Park Community Update Meeting to be Held November 12th

THEORTEGA PARK RENEWAL PROJECT AND THE EVOLUTION OF THE PARK’S DESIGN over the past year will be the focus of a meeting in November hosted by the Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department. The Department is also soliciting final public input to refine and finalize the design before drafting construction drawings for the future park.

The meeting will take place on Saturday, November 12th, at 1pm at the Ortega Welcome House. Spanish translation services will be provided.

Updates provided by the Parks and Recreation Department will include details on the following: Murals and Public Art – Four community meetings informed the locations for 12 existing murals and 12 new murals; Community Pool – The 25-yard pool increased from 4 to 6 lanes to support expanded programming options; All-Wheel Park (formerly Skate Park) – The skate park now has an all-wheel design suited for skateboards, scooters, bikes, rollerskates, and rollerblades; Community Gathering Space – The community gathering space has been expanded to support large-scale community events. This change required the removal of the bocce ball and cornhole courts, and ping-pong tables. The splash pad has also been removed, and splash features have been incorporated into the wading pool within the community pool area; Fencing – Fencing will be used around the pool, all-wheel park, and multi-sport field to ensure safety. The perimeter fence allowing the park to be secured after-hours has been removed.

According to the Parks and Recreation Department, all design refinements have been guided by public request and feedback, with outreach for the Ortega Park Renewal Project beginning in 2018. The Master Plan was released in January 2019. From there, the project moved through the planning and design review process with extensive community engagement before receiving final approval from the Planning Commission in September 2021.

The November 12th meeting seeks to confirm public agreement on the communitydriven refinements made to the plan since the 2021 approval. Following this meeting, the Parks and Recreation Department will complete final construction documents and obtain building permits.

Members of the public who are unable to attend the in-person event may submit public comments by email to JVanMullem@SantaBarbaraCA.gov.

She Kills Monsters Sends Viewers on a Memorable Quest

PORTER THEATER INTO A MAGICAL LAND ridden with formidable foes, sword fights, and loyal friends, She Kills Monsters speaks to the power stories hold to change our lives. Presented by Westmont College Theatre and led by Director Mitchell Thomas, the play follows a high school cheerleader who turns to Dungeons & Dragons in hopes of reconnecting with her sister’s memory. The result is a dramedy peppered with wit that celebrates the nerd within us all. Performances continue through Saturday, October 29th.


A hooded narrator (Annika Daglish) positioned above the stage greets audiences just as a D&D “Dungeon Master” might set the scene for their players, explaining how Agnes (Emily Derr) lost her nerdy sister, Tilly (Rachel Herriges) in a fatal car accident. Upon discovering a home-brew D&D campaign her sister wrote prior to her death, Agnes enlists the help of freshman Chuck (Noah Nims) to play through Tilly’s game. They quickly realize that this game also served as Tilly’s diary, forcing Agnes to confront her grief and how little she knew about Tilly’s life.

Given Agnes’ unfamiliarity with D&D, audiences do not require a working knowledge of the game in order to enjoy the play. She Kills Monsters aptly captures the game’s charm, with Agnes continually popping between reality and the D&D realm. There, she meets and fights alongside characters Tilly created based on people she knew, in addition to “talking” with her sister’s memory via her D&D persona, Tillius the Paladin.

The Westmont cast does a fantastic job of striking an ideal tone to address the play’s range of silly and serious topics. Derr demonstrates Agnes’ great character growth, evolving from a hesitant and scornful D&D player to a devoted sister full of grief and hope. As Chuck, Nims embodies an absolute nerd, playing well off of Anges’ boyfriend, Miles

(Jacob Siaki). Siaki heightens the play’s humor and heart by playing a well-intentioned jock who is more than meets the eye.

As Tilly, Herriges delivers a profoundly moving, stand-out performance that exhibits tremendous passion as well as fear, as it is revealed Tilly was bullied not just for her nerdy interests, but also for her sexuality. Surrounding her in friendship and love are her faithful D&D campaign mates, Lillith (Junia Coe-Renner), Kaliope (Maegan Randolph), and Orcus (Alaina Dean). The trio highlights the support D&D can provide as a place for selfexploration, connecting with others, and having fun.

The unquestionable cherry on top is the production’s impressive utilization of stunning puppets and costumes, courtesy of Puppetry Designer Christina McCarthy and Costume Designer Lynne Marie Martens. Handcrafted and intricately detailed, these elements bring to life cyclops, a floating beholder, and even a five-headed dragon in thrilling fight sequences.

Add a solid supporting cast and countless clever D&D references, and She Kills Monsters presents a fantastical adventure chronicling grief, sisterly love, and friendship. For tickets visit www.westmont.edu/watchtheater

Andrew Antone Releases First Book, Opens Photography Exhibition at Santa Barbara Zoo

PRESENTING A STUNNING VISUAL ADVENTURE THROUGH AFRICA, Andrew Antone has released his first book AFRICA in conjunction with opening a fine art photography exhibition at the Santa Barbara Zoo Discovery Pavilion. Including approximately 500 photos, 50 percent of the proceeds raised by the book and exhibition will be donated to the SB Zoo.

Spanning 456 pages, AFRICA explores the diversity of Africa’s animal kingdom and its endangered members, with photo locales ranging from Okavango Delta, Botswana and Nairobi, Kenya, to the Serengeti, Tanzania. Lions, leopards, elephants, giraffes, zebras, and more make for beautiful and fascinating subjects.

A SB Zoo member and donor for over 15 years, Antone is deeply passionate about the Zoo’s conservation programs. He is joined in his commitment by his husband, Patrick, a SB Zoo volunteer-turned-employee, who has supported the Zoo since he was twelve years old. Antone took the photographs now on display at the Discovery Pavilion and in AFRICA during his and Patrick’s March 2022 expedition to Africa, which was part of the Santa Barbara Zoo’s Adventure Travel program. Delayed from 2020, the journey acted as the couple’s honeymoon.

“Born out of love—love for animals, love for travel, love for life—this expedition across Africa was a life-long dream come true,” said Antone. “Devoid of windows, doors, or barriers—to be less than six feet away from, and look into the eyes of lions, leopards, elephants, and giraffes in their natural, unadulterated habitat—was an experience that can’t be communicated in words.”

Copies of AFRICA are available for purchase at the Santa Barbara Zoo Gift Shop or online via Amazon. The Discovery Pavilion exhibition will continue through January 31st, 2023.

A constitutional amendment put on

Back at last!

expressly protects


freedom, consistent with existing

with rights in the state

PROP. 31

A constitutional amendment put on the ballot by the Legislature. It expressly protects reproductive freedom, consistent with existing California laws and with rights in the state Constitution.

PROP. 31

In 2020, California passed a law banning the sale of flavored tobacco products, e-cigarettes and menthol cigarettes, at stores and vending machines. A YES is a vote to keep the ban in place. A NO vote would repeal the ban. Prop 31 is an important step to protect the health and safety of Californians.

THE LOBERO THEATRE CHAMBER MUSIC PROJECT, a legacy of the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, sprang back to life last week (October 18th) with a program of music for piano trio and piano quartet that was both elegant and enlightening. Heichiro Ohyama, former conductor of the Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra, functions as Artistic and Music Director of the Lobero Theatre Chamber Music Project. As everybody knows, Ohyama can’t keep his hands off the viola, so subs as needed in that role, as he did for one of the pieces on the program last week. Violinist Benjamin Beilman serves as violinist and Musical Advisor to the Chamber Music Project.


Would raise the sales tax rate by 1%, or 1 cent per dollar spent.

In 2020, California passed a law banning the sale of flavored tobacco products, e-cigarettes and menthol cigarettes, at stores and vending machines. A YES is a vote to keep the ban in place. A NO vote would repeal the ban. Prop 31 is an important step to protect the health and safety of Californians.

Beginning in 2024, providing approximately $10,600,000 annually until ended by voters. Currently Goleta receives less than a tenth of its 7.75% sales tax, but the increase would all go to the city for much needed services.

With the assistance of colleagues pianist Lucille Chung and cellist Edward Arron, the Lobero audience was treated to a magical interpretation of Dvorák’s Trio No. 4 in E minor, Op. 90 for Violin, Cello, and Piano, Dumky (1890-91) and a refined performance of Faure’s Piano Quartet No. 1, in C Minor, Op. 15 (1876-79 & 1883). Focusing listener attention throughout the evening was the integrity and breathtaking reflective quietude of the Dvorák, and the seminal fortitude of the Fauré, both works performed in lush, late nineteenth century style by the ensemble. Virtuoso technical execution and an essential equality of empathy between the musicians made it all work.


The League of Women Voters of California has no recommendation on the other propositions.

Would raise the sales tax rate by 1%, or 1 cent per dollar spent.

The League ofWomenVoters of California has no recommendation on the other propositions.




Opening the program with Antonin Dvorák’s slightly quirky Piano Trio No. 4 in E minor, Op. 90, Dumky (1890-91), pianist Lucille Chung, violinist Benjamin Beilman, and cellist Edward Arron made its six sections a marvel, not just of musical finesse and interpretive insight, but also that secret ingredient that enlightens performance, ensemble intuition. For all its flighty, folkloric friendliness, there’s something going on in this work that presages the composer’s mind-bending four-year stint as Director of the National Conservatory of Music in New York City (1892-1895). Violinist Benjamin Beilman, firmly yet ever so delicately in charge, guided his colleagues, already acutely attuned to one another, on a phrase-centered journey, ensemble attacks and releases meticulously executed and stylishly honed. Time vanished in fevers of ensemble beauty and high-wire emotional attitude. The big surprise that took the performance over the top? Transformative passages of immaculate quietude.

Gabrielle Fauré’s Piano Quartet No. 1 in C minor, Op. 15 (1876-79 & 1883) was the second and last work on the program. Ohyama joined the others on viola. From the first bars of the opening Allegro molto moderato, ensemble playing was nicely balanced, tutti attacks and releases stunning, fluid, and subtly colored. The players gave the second movement, Scherzo-Allegro vivo its playful due, but the slow movement, Adagio, wherein so many of Fauré’s secret regrets lie hidden, was given an exquisitely painful interpretation, a tribute to the humanity of the artists, and Faure’s musical messaging. The lively last movement Allegro molto, picked up the pace appropriately, Fauré’s lively and heroic themes passing amiably between the players.

Project Reboot, Social Media Addiction Program

Taught at UC Berkeley, Comes to Santa Barbara


STUDENTS AND PARENTS/ADULTS how to tame social media addiction and replace it with healthy tech habits, the Mental Wellness Center will present Project Reboot, a 3-week screen time program that kicks-off with a compelling presentation by Dino Ambrosi, Project Reboot

Founder. The kick-off, at Santa Barbara City College’s Garvin Theatre on Sunday, November 6th at 4:30pm, will offer up new skills and habits aimed at countering the need for social media and technology to fill up our free time and ease pervasive anxiety and depression felt by so many.

The November 6th event, is free for students; registration required. Visit www.mentalwellnesscenter.org to register.

What is Project Reboot and how did it start?

Dino Ambrosi: Project Reboot is a program designed to help people (particularly high school and college students) build relationships with technology that empower them. It was inspired by my own struggle to maintain a healthy relationship with my phone in college and was initially taught as a semester-length course at UC Berkeley.

What is the goal of the program?

Ambrosi: To guide students to informed intentions for their screen time and help them stick to them. I don't believe in deleting social media or throwing your phone off a bridge. In fact, I think our phones are incredible tools that have the potential to enhance our lives. However, teens need to understand that they pay for social media with their time, and the apps are designed to capture as much of it as possible. The answer isn't to cut screen time to zero,

it's to clarify what value it provides you and determine what it looks like for you to get a good deal out of social media.

What are your hopes for the future of the program?

Ambrosi: I believe there is a massive gap in the education system regarding how we interact with technology and I'm on a mission to close it. In the short-term, I'll be focusing on delivering the program in-person at high schools. Long-term, I want to bring this curriculum to as many high school and college students as possible and am working towards a scalable solution to achieve that. What are you hearing from parents and what is their biggest concern?

Ambrosi: The reaction from parents has been extremely positive. I think screen time is a difficult thing for them to talk about with their kids because they didn't grow up with social media and frankly, kids don't really want to hear criticism about their tech use from them. The fact that I'm 23 and can speak to my own experience about becoming addicted to my phone in college allows me to relate to kids and facilitate productive conversations about screen time in a way parents can't.

Why is senior year in HS and first year in college so critical?

Ambrosi: The transition into college is really difficult because your schedule loses a lot of structure, academics get harder, and you become surrounded by distractions. Even if your screen time has been under control for your whole life, that can be a recipe for a massive spike in social media use. College is (and should

be) uncomfortable. If you face that discomfort head on, you will grow, if you run from it by turning to your phone you won't. Are there specific health issues (emotional and physical) associated with too much screen time?

Ambrosi: There are a lot, but for the sake of brevity I'll focus on two.

First off, your brain changes based on how you use it. When we are online we are constantly switching our attention between different tasks and pieces of information, and over time this damages our ability to sustain our attention on anything for an extended period of time. For more information on the cognitive impacts of screen time go check out the Ledger of Harms that the Center for Humane Technology has published.

Second, using your phone as an escape from discomfort lowers your tolerance for future discomfort. I believe this is upstream of many of the psychological and emotional issues that people talk about when discussing the consequences of screen time. If your phone inhibits you from to doing things that challenge you, processing uncomfortable emotions, and responding to stress, it's very likely there will be mental health challenges that result.

What kind of feedback are you getting?

Ambrosi: The feedback has been amazing. My average student in the course at UC Berkeley reduced their screen time by over 3 hours per day, with some cutting back by 6+ hours. Students have told me the program has helped them get ahead in school, spend more time with friends, improved their physical health, and allow them to find more joy in the simple pleasures that life has to offer.


and inspired by blues, rock, Latin, and even hip hop, ¡Flamenco! Santa Barbara will present Navajita PlateaNoches de Bohemia & Friends on Friday, November 4th at 7:30pm. Navajita Plateá is a Latin GRAMMY® nominated contemporary flamenco duo from Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. Together for over three decades and both from renowned gypsy family dynasties, Idelfonso de los Reyes (“Pelé”) and Francisco Carrasco (“Curro”), have captivated fans all over the world with their eclectic sound compositions.

Navajita Plateá has shared the stage with artists such as Chuck Berry and many others.

Their first album, Navajita Plateá, was the soundtrack for the film Días Contados, by Imanol Uribe. Their second album, Contratiempos, took them directly to the

Billboard charts, obtaining their first gold record with their hit Frío Sin Ti. Their third album, Desde mi Azotea, received triple platinum status, and Noches de Bohemia was the Best Song of the year at Spain’s Music Awards. Their fourth album, Hablando en Plata, was nominated for a Latin GRAMMY®, and their fifth album, En Familia, was recorded live and positioned them as the top-selling artist of contemporary flamenco.

Navajita Plateá will be joined by celebrated dancer and artistic director María Bermúdez, who was recently honored as an Embajadora del Flamenco de Jerez (Ambassador of Flamenco), along with dancers Manuel Gutiérrez, Timo Nuñez, and friends.

The show at the Lobero Theatre is presented by Flamenco Santa Barbara and Flamenco Live Productions. Flamenco Santa Barbara is a local nonprofit dedicated to expanding access to authentic flamenco through performances, music, and dance education and student scholarships.

AFTERRECOVERING FROM THE 2022 HARBOR & SEAFOOD FESTIVAL (the greatest all-harbor related party ever!), I had time, courtesy of my camera, to review the amazing sights, sounds, and events of that day. There were so many yummy seafood offerings, and lots of ‘shop till you drop’ opportunities accompanied by serious rock ‘n roll. These photos jolted me into a reminder of yet another wonderful thing: The DeepWater Diving Monument, to be placed at the entrance of the harbor, honoring Santa Barbara and its legendary divers for establishing what has become a worldwide industry.

“I’m often asked why Santa Barbara became the hub of diving and the diving industry - an easy question with three simple answers: abalone, oil, and the Channel Islands,” recounted Professor Emeritus Don Barthelmess of Santa Barbara City College’s Marine Diving Technology Program. “It all began with the Chumash who dove for abalone, not only for food but for dishes, fish hooks, whale bones, and other practical tools. The asphaltum that seeped naturally from the ground was also a large part of the Chumash culture and was used to waterproof everything from the tomol (canoe) to housewares and other utensils used for everyday life for centuries.”

As Santa Barbara began to expand commercially, the asphaltum and oil seepage along the California coastline attracted the oil industry. In 1896, offshore oil drilling began with the Summerland Oil Fields, and in 1898 Japanese divers appeared with underwater technology; air-diving, suits, helmets, and experience. The Japanese dominated the industry until 1942 when entire Japanese communities were relocated to internment camps, after which local divers filled the vacuum. “Early oil divers attempted greater depths, sometimes at dangerous levels, on behalf of the oil companies,” explained Barthelmess.

“Unfortunately, issues such as physical limitations, heavy gear, and nitrogen assimilation, limited divers to a depth of 200 feet.”

In November of 1962, Santa Barbara diver Dan Wilson shocked the diving world with a record-shattering dive of 400 feet assisted by Naval technology - oxy-helium for breathing. “Everyone thought that Danny was nuts to even attempt that dive, and some even predicted it would be his last,” recalled Barthelmess, “but instead he changed the art of diving and opened the door to the future which included exploration and technology.”

Subsequently modern diving helmets, designed by local abalone divers, the late Bob Kirby and Bev Morgan (Kirby Morgan Dive Systems), became the international standard for militaries and deep-water divers. Additionally, local companies were formed to support helium diving such as Cal Dive, originally located on Stearns Wharf. The world’s largest publicly traded dive company, Oceaneering International, had its corporate headquarters on Cota Street in the 1970s. Cal Dive and Oceaneering still trade today on the New York Stock Exchange. Well over 90 percent of the deep-water diving helmets used by working divers globally are made in Santa Barbara. The subsequent introduction of the diving bell, much lighter equipment, and the WASP suit (similar to a space suit with an internal environment) made diving to depths of thousands of feet possible.

Santa Barbara City College developed the only community college program in the United States to train Marine Technicians and divers to support the worldwide industry. The unique environment in Santa Barbara has been the breeding ground for the manufacture of equipment and of diver training, not only commercially, but as scientists, entrepreneurs,

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Dan Wilson’s pioneering 400’ dive that revolutionized commercial diving. In anticipation of this historic year, The Santa Barbara Diving Monument Committee was formed by diver Leslie Leaney, local historian and a founder of The Historical Diving Society, and Don Barthelmess of Santa Barbara City College’s Marine Diving Technology Program, to design and raise funds for the installation of a diver monument. The monument, designed by famed sculptor Greg Polutanovich, is a gift to the City of Santa Barbara Waterfront Department. This imposing eight foot bronze sculpture will provide an enduring local attraction that confirms Santa Barbara’s historic significance in the development of global ocean exploration and marine research. The committee is raising funds privately by selling replicas of the monument. Taxpayer dollars will not be used as the cost of labor, sculptor, permits, and architect’s fees are included in the total fundraising effort.

Bookworm Corner: Uncle Monarch and the Day of the Dead

EXAMINING FAMILY, LOVE, AND HOW JOY CAN COEXIST WITH GRIEF, Uncle Monarch and the Day of the Dead by Judy Goldman captures the beauty of Día de los Muertos. Richly illustrated by René King Moreno, the 2008 picture book follows a girl named Lupita as she and her family prepare to celebrate Día de los Muertos following the death of her uncle, Urbano.


Written in a descriptive style ideal for second-grade readers and up, this poignant premise not only introduces young readers to the traditions of Día de los Muertos, but acts as an uplifting reminder that our memories will always let us keep our loved ones close.

The story opens as Lupita and Urbano welcome monarch butterflies returning to the trees by their home. Urbano teaches Lupita that monarchs are thought to be the visiting souls of departed loved ones, emphasizing the value of memories during Día de los Muertos. However, as Lupita and her family prepare for the holiday by decorating their ofrenda and preparing meals their deceased relatives enjoyed in life, Urbano becomes ill and dies.

Eventually, by participating in her family’s and community’s Día de los Muertos festivities, Lupita is able to process her grief, described as a “gray feeling,” replacing it with hope and love after seeing a monarch butterfly resting on her uncle’s grave.

In maintaining a focus on Día de los Muertos as a joyful celebration, Goldman meets

the challenge of addressing grief in a manner straightforward enough for young readers to understand. Lupita’s story lets readers explore the holiday’s meaning from a personal angle, perhaps helping those who have lost loved ones themselves reflect on their grief.

Goldman also includes a wealth of information on families’ observations of Día de los Muertos, explaining how Lupita’s family builds an ofrenda for Tío Urbano, decorates their house with marigolds, and ultimately sings and celebrates at the cemetery. There is also a glossary of Spanish phrases as well as an explanation of Día de los Muertos.

Combined with Lupita’s story, these educational elements make Uncle Monarch and the Day of the Dead a read that is as informative as it is moving, making it a heartwarming read for Santa Barbara families celebrating Día de los Muertos this week.

Bookworm Corner is a weekly column dedicated to highlighting children’s and young adult books that carry positive messages. It is penned by Daisy Scott, a lifelong reader and lover of children’s literature who holds her degree in literature and writing from UC San Diego.


CONFIDENCE IN THE MARKET FOR NEWLY BUILT SINGLE-FAMILY HOMES dropped eight points in October to 38—half the level it was just six months ago— according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI) released October 17th.

This is the lowest confidence reading since August 2012, except for the onset of the pandemic in the spring of 2020, and means the housing sector has been hit hard by higher interest rates, which have reached nosebleed territory for prospective homebuyers.

“This will be the first year since 2011 to see a decline for single-family starts,” said NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz. “And given expectations for ongoing elevated interest rates due to actions by the Federal Reserve, 2023 is forecasted to see additional single-family building declines as the housing contraction continues. While some analysts have suggested that the housing market is now more ‘balanced,’ the truth is that the homeownership rate will decline in the quarters ahead as higher interest rates and ongoing elevated construction costs

continue to price out many prospective buyers.”

Existing-home sales look no better. The National Association of REALTORS reports year-over-year, sales faded by 19.9 percent (5.99 million in August 2021).

“The housing sector is the most sensitive to and experiences the most immediate impacts from the Federal Reserve’s interest rate policy changes,” said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. “The softness in home sales reflects this year’s escalating mortgage rates. Nonetheless, homeowners are doing well with near nonexistent distressed property sales and home prices still higher than a year ago.”

This is small comfort to a housing market already in recession, said economist Diane Swonk.

inflation that has spiked higher interest rates, something that President Biden and Democrats have little control over. Worldwide food and energy prices first began to surge with Russia’s invasion of the Ukraine.

prices, which increased by 14.5 percent on year compared with 13.1 percent in August. Meanwhile, the continued fall in the price of motor fuels made the largest downward contribution, the ONS said.

“Mortgage demand plummets 86 percent from a year ago as refis continue to evaporate along with new mortgage demand.

The data adds to the collapse we saw in home builder sentiment earlier this week and marks a 25 year low. The housing market recession will get demonstrably worse,” she said in a recent Tweet @DianeSwonk.

The real problem hurting housing is

The UK just reported its consumer-price index increased 10.1 percent in September year-on-year, up from 9.9 percent in August, according to data from the U.K.’s Office for National Statistics published Wednesday.

The rise in inflation was driven by higher food and nonalcoholic beverage

The UK has one of the better inflation numbers. Turkey, Russia, Brazil, and many other countries hit hard by the supply shortages still have double-digit inflation rates.

So, let’s put the blame for high inflation where it belongs—China’s troubles with COVID lockdowns, a war, and lingering hangover from the pandemic, ok?

THE SHOESTRING ACACIA earned its unusual name from its distinctively long and thin leaves that hang from its gracefully arched branches.

This picturesque tree is a relative newcomer to Santa Barbara, having become more common here in just the last 25 years. Its popularity can be attributed to its pleasing appearance and its perfect adaption to our various soils and Mediterranean climate.

The Shoestring Acacia is a mediumsized evergreen tree that is fast growing when young. At maturity, it can reach a height of 30 feet with a canopy width of 25 feet. It can also be grown as a multiplestemmed spreading tree or large shrub. A young tree, though rather lanky at first, quickly develops a dense crown that becomes more open and sculptural over time - giving the tree a lovely, willow-like, appearance.

The crown has long arching branches, which are covered with long thin leaves (six- to 16-inches long and ¼ inch wide) that are straight or slightly curved – the “shoestrings.” The “leaves” are actually modified petioles, called phyllodes, that function like leaves for photosynthesis.

This tree has a pleasing floral display of small (up to ½ inches in diameter) creamywhite puffball-like flowers in late summer through early fall, though some flowers can be seen sporadically throughout the year. The flowers develop along the ends of branches in clusters of three to five heads called racemes. Each head has 25 to 40 flowers.

Shoestring Acacia is actually a legume, as are beans, and is in the plant family, Fabaceae. It is not surprising then that its pollinated flowers develop bean-like seed pods (four- to ten-inches in length). The enclosed dark brown seeds are ¼ inches long and elliptical in shape. The pods are moniliform, meaning they are tightly constricted around the seeds and, consequently, resemble a long string of pearls. The

pods are green when young and turn brown as they age and dry. The numerous seed pods dangling down from the branches are another distinctive feature of this tree.

The bark on the trunk has rusty-red furrows with light gray longitudinal plates on the ridges that blacken with age. Bark on the branches is smooth and sometimes maroon-colored.

The Shoestring Acacia is native to Australia, primarily in the eastern and central parts of the country, though smaller populations can be found in northern and southwest Australia. Its wide native range explains why it is so adaptable to various soils and climates. It is normally found in areas with a minimum of 16 inches of annual rainfall, which is similar to our normal rainfall.

The botanical name for Shoestring Acacia is Acacia stenophylla. The genus name, Acacia, is Latin but was derived from the Greek word, “akakia,” meaning “Egyptian thorn acacia”. The specific epithet, stenophylla, is a combination of the Greek words “stenos” meaning “narrow”, and “phyllon” meaning “leaf”, which refers to the narrow leaves. It has many common names in Australia, including Black Wattle, Ironwood, Native Willow, and River Cooba. In the United States, its only common name is Shoestring Acacia.

In our area, Shoestring Acacia is used exclusively as a landscape tree. Because of its widespread distribution in Australia, it has historically had many other utilitarian uses. The extremely hard wood is used for fabricating furniture and tools and for building fences. The seed pods and seeds are roasted by indigenous Australians to be used in cooking.

Shoestring Acacia

should be planted in full sunlight. Some pruning might be necessary to train for structure and to reduce the number of trunks to the desired number; however, it should be thinned only when it is young. Watering is usually only needed until it is well established and during prolonged droughts. Fertilization is not necessary, because it has nitrogen-fixing nodules on its roots. It is not affected by any serious insect or disease pests. It is also very tolerant of high heat and of soils with clay and high salt content. It is cold hardy to 20 to 25 degrees F. Propagation is easy from seed. It grows quickly at first, up to three feet per year, but slows as it gets more mature.

The Shoestring Acacia makes an excellent drought-tolerant tree for residential and commercial landscapes. It is particularly useful on sites with poor soil. It can be planted as a single specimen for a dramatic focal point - or in groups for a grove effect. It is perfectly suited for modern lawn-free landscapes, where it can be used effectively with succulents and cactus. Planting it against a building or white wall will show off its open branching structure. It is particularly rewarding in locations where you want a quick tree.

Shoestring Acacias can be seen locallypredominantly in commercial landscapes. Mature trees can be seen at the southwest corner of State Street and De La Vina Street, at the corner of State Street and La Cumbre Road (parking area), at the northeast corner of Cliff Drive and Meigs Road, at the southeast corner of Gutierrez Street and Milpas Street (on the corner and in the back parking area) and, at the northeast corner of Chapala Street and Canon Perdido Street (in the parking area). A few can be seen as street trees at the corner of Samarkand Drive and Santa Anita Road and in the 1400 block of Lou Dillon Lane.

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!

Tacos & Tequila Aplenty

WITHHUNDREDS OF TEQUILAS AND SPIRITS available for tasting and cocktails topping off a menu of Mexican bites, Augie’s of Santa Barbara brings a new dining experience to the State Street promenade.

Drawing inspiration from the Bay Area bars of owner Berkeley “Augie” Johnson’s youth, the restaurant’s interior is stylishly detailed, including hand-blown glass lamps and wrought-iron decor. Customers enjoy this atmosphere while savoring high-end dishes that blend local ingredients and California flair with authentic Mexican flavor.

“Think Old San Francisco type of proper dining experience, infused with that Santa Barbara casual vibe. It’s where you go for an anniversary or a date,” shared Johnson. “It’s somewhere where locals can come and have a really positive, warm, friendly experience.”

A Santa Barbara resident for 25 years, Johnson has forged a unique path into the restaurant business. After he and his family lost their home in the 2018 Montecito debris flow, Johnson learned how agave can act as a natural firebreak. To prevent further tragedies, he began planting agave plants by the score along his and other community members’ homes.

“Then I said, ‘well, maybe I can convert these into alcohol,’” he remarked.

Motivated to explore the world of agave spirits, Johnson traveled to Jalisco, where he met regional distillers and ultimately launched two tequila labels — Augie’s Tequila and Firebreak. As he distributed these labels to local restaurants, he grew more compelled to open his own place that would merge his passion for tequila with food as well as offer people a good time.

Helmed by Chef Eduardo Gonzalez, who previously worked at the Rosewood Miramar, Augie’s four-course menu offers a wide range of seafood appetizers, including oysters, uni, and octopus. Additional entrees include fish caldo verde, carne asada steaks, and mole

tenderloin pork, with vegan and veggie bowl options. Sides, such as esquite, poblano rice, and a charcuterie plate, round out the menu, followed by desserts including buñuelos, churros, and more. To support the community, Augie’s uses as many local ingredients as possible.

“We use the local fishery and also the local organic farms,” said Johnson. “We’re just in this perfect bread basket as far as getting really good food from the local markets.”

This regional focus carries through the restaurant’s design, with Johnson working with local artisans to add many of the creative accents surrounding its wooden tables, booths, and expansive bar.

However, drinks remain a main attraction for Augie’s diners, with approximately 300 tequilas available in addition to mezcals and other agave spirits. These spirits can be enjoyed as part of tasting flights or in cocktails, with drinks mixed and served in clay cups in the style of Guadalajara drinkware. There are also non-tequila cocktails, wines, and beers available.

“Here, everyone knows a lot about tequila and they can help guide people,” explained Johnson. “The person that doesn’t know tequila at all is welcome here.”

A Time of Gifts: Six




all donated to the Santa Barbara Museum of Art were recently unveiled at the opening of A Time of Gifts: Six Years of Photographs Given to the Collection, 2016–2022. On view through January 15, 2023, the exhibition of photographs by Robert Adams, Diane Arbus, Kwame Brathwaite, Nell Campbell, Awol Erizku, Janna Ireland, Aaron Siskind, and Hiroshi Sugimoto, among many important artists, is the first exhibition presented by the Department of Photography and New Media in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s newly-renovated McCormick Gallery and Wasserman and Family Gallery.

“The premise of this exhibition is to exhibit the superb work of nearly 70 artists and their extraordinary vision, but also to thank the donors who have been with us through some very challenging times,” shared Curator of Photography and New Media Charlie Wylie.

“Everything in the gallery was either given to us outright or the funds were given to us to acquire the works. So it’s an extraordinary compendium of works of art and true generosity and support for this marvelous institution.”

The extensive exhibition celebrates the generosity of numerous SBMA donors

whose gifts of photographs and funds have allowed the Museum to add over 600 photographs to its collection between 2016 and 2022, roughly the era of the Museum’s recentlycompleted renovation project.

Reflecting the breadth of photographs given to the collection, A Time of Gifts expands into the Von Romberg and Emmons Galleries, amply demonstrating the extraordinary vision of Museum benefactors in guaranteeing that SBMA’s collection of photographs continues to grow and thrive in depth and distinction. This exhibition has been made possible by the generosity of Patricia Aoyama and Chris Kleveland, Martha Gabbert, Eric A. Skipsey Fund, The Dana and Albert R. Broccoli Charitable Foundation, and SBMA PhotoFutures.

FOR18 YEARS, the members of the Mesa Artists Studio Tour have earned a reputation for quality art and hospitality. Their annual autumn weekend event, set for 11am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday, on November 5th and 6th, welcomes the public at no charge to home studios perched on airy slopes, or tucked along seaside lanes, or down shady byways. For many visitors, taking the tour has become a autumn tradition. Most drive, but some tour by bicycle, or even walk.

Since the early 20th century, the Santa Barbara Mesa has been a haven and inspiration for noted Western artists. That’s not surprising since The Mesa soars upward just west of the city’s picturesque harbor, with bright hillsides above miles of dramatic beaches and sea cliffs. Removed from the bustle of the city center, The Mesa is blessed with gorgeous views of mountains, ocean, offshore islands, and natural areas unsurpassed on the California Coast. It’s simply fun to explore and tour studios along the way.

All award winning artists, the Mesa group makes sure each visitor enjoys a peek into their working world and their art. Many offer light refreshment. Original works on display are for sale, with a wide range of sizes and prices. Some artists also offer limited edition prints, or greeting cards based on their art, and credit cards are widely accepted.

To take the 2022 tour, go to the website home page and select map or tour brochure to download. The materials include dates and times, artist profiles, and art samples. Or, you can view the information via the website on your cellphone or computer notebook. On tour days, yellow signs point the way to each studio.

To find the studios download the map or tour brochure on the MAST website at www.santabarbaramesaartists.com or follow the yard signs & red balloons on tour days.

The Environmental Footprint of Food

Researchers map the environmental pressures of global production for all foods on land and ocean

IN AN AGE OF INDUSTRIALIZED FARMING AND COMPLEX SUPPLY CHAINS, the true environmental pressures of our global food system are often obscure and difficult to assess.

“Everyone eats food, and more and more people are paying attention to the planetary consequences of what they eat,” said UC Santa Barbara marine ecologist Ben Halpern. Figuring out this impact to the planet proves to be a gargantuan task for many reasons, including the fact that around the world there are a lot of different foods produced in many different ways, with many different environmental pressures.

By ranking foods on factors such as greenhouse gas emissions or water pollution, scientists have made useful headway on assessments of the environmental impacts of food by pound or kilogram. While these evaluations are helpful in guiding consumer choices, Halpern explained that a more comprehensive examination of the environmental footprint — the locations affected by the various pressures from food production and the severity of that pressure — is needed for decisions that have to be made in a world with a booming population.

Lopsided pressures and hidden connections

“Did you know that almost half of all environmental pressures from food production come from just five countries?” Halpern asked.

For Halpern, executive director at NCEAS and a professor at UCSB’s Bren School of Environmental Science & Management, understanding the impacts of food production along with the local context of these impacts has been a longstanding interest. By taking detailed data about greenhouse gas emissions, freshwater use, habitat disturbance, and nutrient pollution (e.g., fertilizer runoff) generated by 99 percent of total reported production of aquatic and terrestrial foods in 2017, and mapping those impacts at high resolution, the researchers were able to create a more nuanced picture of the pressures — the inputs, processes, and outputs — of global food production.

“I became a pescatarian years ago because of wanting to reduce the environmental footprint of what I eat... Now that we have the results, I see that from an environmental perspective, chicken is actually better than some seafood. And so I’ve shifted my diet to start including chicken again, while eliminating some high-pressure seafoods like bottom-trawl caught cod and haddock. I am actually eating my words.”

“The individual choice of eight billion people adds up,” he said, “and we need to know the overall impact of total food production — not just per pound — especially when setting food policy.”

To fill that need, Halpern and colleagues at UC Santa Barbara’s National Center for Ecological Analysis & Synthesis (NCEAS) have mapped for the first time the environmental footprint of the production of all foods, both in the ocean and on land. Their research is published in the journal Nature

Sustainability [https://www.nature.com/articles/s41893-022-00965-x].

The findings are eye-opening.

“Cumulative pressures of food production are more concentrated than previously believed, with the vast majority — 92 percent of pressures from landbased food production — concentrated on just ten percent of the Earth’s surface,” noted Melanie Frazier, a research scientist at NCEAS and coauthor of the paper. Additionally, the space required for dairy and beef farming accounts for about a quarter of the cumulative footprint of all food production. And those five countries accounting for almost half of all food production-related environmental pressures? India, China, the United States, Brazil, and Pakistan.

The study also examines the environmental efficiency of each food type, similar to the perpound of food approach that most other studies use, but now accounting for differences among countries rather than just assuming it is the same everywhere.

“The environmental efficiency of producing a particular food type varies spatially, such that rankings of foods by efficiency differ sharply among countries, and this matters for guiding which foods we eat and from where,” said Halley Froehlich, assistant professor in environmental studies at UCSB and a coauthor of the study.

Methods of production factor into the research team’s assessment. For instance, thanks to technology that reduces greenhouse gases and increases yields, the United States — the world’s number one producer of soy — is more than twice as efficient as India (the fifth largest producer) at producing the crop, making American soy the more environmentally friendly choice.

The research also uncovers connections between land and sea that get missed when looking only at one or the other, and that result in significant environmental pressures. Pigs and chicken have an ocean footprint because marine forage fish such as herrings, anchovies, and sardines are used for their feed. The converse is true for mariculture farms, whose cropbased feeds extend the fish farms’ environmental pressure on to land.

Assessing cumulative pressures can bring to light results that could not have been predicted by examining individual pressures alone. For instance, while raising cattle requires by far the most grazing land, the cumulative pressures of pig farming, which produces a lot of pollution and uses more water than cattle farming, are slightly greater than that of cows. Measured by cumulative pressures, the top five offenders are pig, cow, rice, wheat, and oil crops.

In order to feed a growing and increasingly wealthy global population while reducing environmental degradation and enhancing food security, major shifts will need to be made to current food systems, according to the researchers. In some cases, farming might need to improve efficiency; in other cases, consumers might need to change their food choices.

“We need this comprehensive information to make more accurate decisions about what we eat,” said Halpern, who modified his own food choices based on the results of this study.

“I became a pescatarian years ago because of wanting to reduce the environmental footprint of what I eat,” he said. “But then I thought, I’m a scientist, I should really use science to inform my decisions about what I eat. That’s actually why I started this research project. And now that we have the results, I see that from an environmental perspective, chicken is actually better than some seafood. And so I’ve shifted my diet to start including chicken again, while eliminating some high-pressure seafoods like bottom-trawl caught cod and haddock. I am actually eating my words.”

Unsettling California

Mellon Sawyer seminar unpacks global migration in podcast and exhibition

AMIDST THE L.A. RACE RIOTS OF 1992, the Black man whose beating by white police was caught on video sent a question like a missive into mainstream media: “Can we all just get along?” asked Rodney King. In the recent exhibition Unsettling California, the question resurfaced in perforated letters cut from a wax-dripped paper box by Mexican-American artist Pilar Agüero-Esparza. The wax pigment is the result of melting the “skin tones” from Crayola’s “multicultural” crayon sets.

Agüero-Esparza is one of eleven artists who presented work in Unsettling California, in the Glass Box Gallery, co-curated by Dani Kwan and Samantha Harris, graduate students in art and education, respectively. Other artists exhibited include Debra Scacco, Devon Tsuno, Hillary Mushkin, Jessica Bellamy, Kate Saubestre, Marisa de la Peña, Margaret Laurena Kemp, Mercedes Dorame, Sarah Rosalena Brady and Silas Munro. Three of the artists are affiliated with UCSB. Sarah Rosalena Brady(link is external) is an assistant professor of art in computational craft and haptic media. Marisa de la Peña is a recent MFA graduate of the Department of Art, and Kate Saubestre is currently pursuing her MFA degree.

The exhibition was the culminating event of the 2021–22 Mellon Sawyer seminar: Race, Precarity, and Privilege: Migration in a Global Context, led by faculty members and principal investigators Kim Yasuda, Lisa Parks, John S. W. Park, France Winddance Twine and Jean Beaman. Together, the professors made up the 2021–22 UC Santa Barbara Mellon Sawyer Seminar Initiative.

Faculty provided research-based forums on race and immigration, with particular attention to California, France, and South Korea. Last fall, for example, Twine, a professor of sociology, facilitated a seminar with Parks, a professor in film and media studies, and Yasuda, a professor of art. The seminar attracted graduate students from seven different departments, across the arts, humanities, and social sciences.

Participants in Twine, Parks, and Yasuda’s fall quarter of the year-long seminar recently launched both a podcast and exhibition, inviting expert guest speakers from diverse fields, in-person and virtually, to explore dominant migration narratives such as the “American Dream” and the “California Dream.”

“Our seminar focused on the relational experiences of Asians (Chinese, Japanese), Blacks, White, Latinx, and Native Americans related to race, labor, and migration in California,” Twine said. Twine has been teaching in the UC system for two decades and said the opportunity to work with Parks and Yasuda was the most rewarding research and coteaching collaboration that she has experienced.

“What made it so rewarding,” she said, “is the ability to collaborate across disciplines with scholars with whom I have deep respect but with whom I had never co-taught.”

Through assigned readings, film screenings, and invited guest talks, seminar participants were guided in reflecting on and situating their family’s migration histories within the cultural history of other groups in California.

The seminar ultimately led to the podcast, “The Deferred Dream,” published on Buzzsprout and the Unsettling California exhibition. Both co-curators, Kwan and Harris, participated in the seminar with Twine, Parks, and Yasuda.

“Because we value community outreach and the concept of a university without walls, we produced a podcast based on interviews with scholars who visited our seminar,” said Parks, who is the director of Global Media Technologies & Cultures Lab.

Parks also said she thought it was vital for faculty and students to have opportunities to learn about complex histories of race, ethnicity and migration in the state of California. “Our seminar last fall assembled methods from sociology, art, film and media studies, and social history

to explore American Indian, Black, Mexican, and Japanese migration experiences in California,” she added.

Many of the discussions provided context to engage with the art presented in Unsettling California. Yasuda explained that the exhibition brought together diverse contemporary artists from across California, including UC Santa Barbara faculty and graduate students. “These artists powerfully excavate unsettled California land histories,” Yasuda said.

Kwan emphasized they wanted to work with artists who questioned the persistent presence of colonial ideologies, structures, and policies still present in the state.

Through learning about the artist interactions with their race or land history, visitors are invited to self-reflect on their own personal histories.

“We are offering visitors an opportunity to evaluate their own place in the settler colonial systems that have shaped this state to reveal our history and what is our role in that history,” Kwan said. “We wanted to try and bring together these important stories, conversations and marks that people can spend time with.”
