The candidates that will appear on Saturday are Santa Barbara Mayor Cathy Murillo; Santa Barbara City Council Member Jason Dominguez; Jonathan Abboud; and Elsa Granados. The 37th District Assembly seat is currently held by Monique Limon, who has announced a run for State Senate, a position that has opened because Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson has termed out.

United Way of Santa Barbara County Helps Fund American Red Cross Emergency Response Vehicle (ERV)


EARLY TWO YEARS AFTER THE DEVASTATING THOMAS FIRE AND MONTECITO DEBRIS FLOW, a brand new, state-of-the-art emergency response vehicle (ERV) has been secured for the Santa Barbara County community by the American Red Cross of the Pacific Coast. United Way of Santa Barbara County (UWSBC) was a lead funder of the ERV through the United Way Thomas Fire and Flood Fund. In Santa Barbara County, through the United Way Thomas Fire & Flood Fund, UWSBC has distributed $2,045,988 to 421 households representing 1,200 individuals affected by the disasters, and 20 community organizations providing short- and long-term relief efforts. UWSBC also remains involved with long-term support of affected families through its role as fiscal agent for the Community Long Term Recovery Group and the Montecito Community Fund. These two funds have distributed an additional $295,846 to 37 households since March 2019 with more distributions forthcoming. The American Red Cross’s ERV was forced into retirement after the Thomas Fire and the subsequent debris flow after serving more than 23 years to communities impacted by disaster in Santa Barbara County and across the country. “United Way is happy to join with Montecito Bank & Trust and other generous donors to ensure that this vital community resource is available and ready to deliver supplies and help to those in need during future disasters,” said Steve Ortiz, President and CEO of United Way of Santa Barbara County. “All of us benefit when our community is prepared for emergencies.” It is through the emergency response vehicles that families affected by disaster can meet the Red Cross and its volunteers in the community – whether it be a warm blanket, a hot meal, or disaster relief supplies. The new ERV costs $150,000 to build, featuring a new design that includes more room inside, desks, a counseling station, a place for people to lay down, and an updated metal transfer pull out for heavy items. Both United Way of Santa Barbara County and Montecito Bank and Trust donated lead gifts of $50,000 each. The new ERV will be branded with United Way of Santa Barbara County and Montecito Bank & Trust logos. United Way of Santa Barbara County has the unique and positive vision that “in our community, everyone has a hopeful future.” Since 1923, UWSBC has served Santa Barbara County community through funding, volunteer development, and by utilizing its own unique initiatives that involve dozens of local non-profit and public sector agencies. UWSBC’s local community driven Power of PartnershipTM priorities help children, families & seniors with a focus on Education, Income and Health.

The Practice of Remembering

A Dynamic Addition Newly arrived on campus, historical economist Trevon Logan is the inaugural North Hall Chair in Economics

By Shelly Leachman / The UC Santa Barbara Current


N EXHIBITION REPRESENTATIVE OF ARTISTS whose teaching methodology is based on the process of making art as an intergenerational discussion will be on view Tuesday, October 8th from 7:30 to 9:30pm at the UCSB MultiCultural Center Lounge. “Our practice (whatever the form) is the ground from which the awareness of what matters — the theoretical, political, and spiritual – interconnect and emerge in conversation with the communities we seek to address and engage.” Artists contributors: Margaret ‘Quica’ Alarcón, Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, Culver City Unified School District ; Yreina D.

Warren, Art Department, Laney College, Oakland.

REVON LOGAN FIRST VISITED UC SANTA BARBARA as a participant in an intensive summer training program in economics meant to increase diversity in that field by preparing talented students for doctoral work in the discipline. More than ten years later — and now a noted scholar of economic history and demography, and a champion for diversity in academia — he has returned as a faculty member. Filling an essential and new role at the university, Logan is the inaugural holder of UC Santa Barbara’s North Hall Chair in Economics. He also will serve as associate dean of social sciences and as faculty Trevon Logan equity advisor for the division. “Our campus is honored and delighted to welcome Professor Trevon Logan as UC Santa Barbara’s inaugural North Hall Chair in Economics,” said Chancellor Henry T. Yang. “He is a renowned scholar and award-winning teacher, and we look forward with excitement and enthusiasm to his contributions to our university. Professor Logan’s deep expertise in the areas of historical economics and demography will be a great addition and asset to our esteemed economics department, and his dedication to issues of equity and diversity in higher education will benefit our campus and our

Water District’s largest customers, would require between 60,000 and 80,000 gallons of recycled water daily. Goleta and Santa Barbara have been using non-potable recycled water on parks, schools, and golf courses for more than 25 years. But many past Montecito water boards opposed the idea, citing concerns for cost and potential health risks. During the recent seven-year drought, facing stiff penalties for over-watering, Montecitans voted in an all-new water board that was backed by more than $120,000 in donations, including significant contributions from golf course members. The candidates pledged to provide “water security” with local supplies, including recycled water. But it’s not a panacea. Montecito is a community of big estates, resort properties, and one-acre lots, and most of its water goes to keep the landscaping green. As a result, Montecitans are some of the highest per-capita water users in California. Only about ten percent of their water is used indoors and can be captured through the sewer system for recycling.

community.” “Trevon Logan is a prominent scholar and a committed advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion. His scholarship dovetails with these commitments beautifully,” noted Charlie Hale, SAGE Sara Miller McCune Dean of Social Sciences. “We are extremely pleased that he has joined the economics faculty as North Hall Chair, and that he has agreed to serve as associate dean and faculty equity adviser. His work in this position is sure to be transformative for our division, and for the entire campus.” Logan comes to UC Santa Barbara from The Ohio State University, where he was the Hazel C. Youngberg Trustees Distinguished Professor in the Department of Economics and was awarded the 2014 Alumni Award for Distinguished Teaching. Much of his research focuses on economic history, including studies related to public accommodations for African Americans and to health outcomes of black Civil War veterans. He was recently named to a new national committee exploring the issue of reparations. “This is a really exciting time to think about the role of a university in an increasingly diverse society and I think UC Santa Barbara is a good distillation of that, and is really on that cutting edge,” Logan said. “This campus is experiencing a lot of change in the composition of its student body, so it also is a dynamic time for the university to think about its purpose and mission as a public institution and as a research-intensive institution, serving a large number of first generation students and being a Hispanic-Serving Institution, with a socioeconomically, racially, and ethnically diverse Courtesy Photo.

student population.” Committed to expanding diversity across academia — undergraduate, graduate, and faculty — Logan in his role with the Division of Social Sciences plans to assess the climate for faculty relative to diversity, and to collaborate with other new members to identify opportunities and challenges with an eye toward potential enhancements. His larger aims extend to diversifying academic leadership at the highest levels. To that end, Logan and other UC Santa Barbara colleagues will convene a small cohort to discuss exactly that. “Having a diverse range of administrators beyond the chair level will really influence the way that a university and its culture embodies principles of diversity and inclusion,” Logan said. “We need to be proactive and we need to be deliberate. First generation college students in academic leadership, people from underrepresented groups in academic leadership — that will change the way that colleges and universities operate and will also improve the student experience.” Logan received his B.S. in economics from the University of Wisconsin, Madison; M.A. degrees in economics and in demography from UC Berkeley (2003); and a Ph.D. in economics, also from UC Berkeley. He was awarded tenure as a professor of economics at The Ohio State University at the age of 32. Logan has held visiting positions at Princton University’s Center for Health and Well-Being and was a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Scholar in Health Policy Research at the University of Michigan. He is a research associate at the National Bureau of Economic Research and was the youngest-ever president of the National Economics Association.

At the Heart of New House 12


At the Center of Santa Barbara’s Cultural Conversation | www.VoiceSB.com

October 4, 2019

By Kerry Methner, PhD / VOICE

STORY OF HOPE AND HEALING IN THE FACE OF DEVASTATION unfolded as members of the New House community gathered on September 14th for the 4th Annual Heart of New House Luncheon. This year the luncheon singled out two long time supporters of the program, Charlie Alva and Penny Jenkins, to receive Heart of New House Awards. Known for the tasty luncheon and beautiful setting provided by the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort, the annual event also is known as one of the more uplifting benefits of gala season. With its own low key style, the luncheon raises funds for New House resident scholarships and program expenses. Over the last year, New House granted 102 scholarships to residents who faced the loss of job, the lack of funds to enter the program, or temporary health issues. In 2020 the program will pilot a dental scholarship program to assist with debilitating pain and help repair resident’s self-confidence. As in previous years, local celebrity and Santa Barbara’s best known hailfellow-well met John Palminteri Master of Ceremonies John Palminteri occupied the podium as Master introduced Paula Lopez, who presented two of Ceremonies. He began his documentary shorts featuring New House comments by providing context graduates in the face of recent community tragedies by noting, “Isn’t it good to be part of a community like this?” and adding, “Santa Barbara takes care of its own.” Palminteri kept things moving with humor and insight, introducing New House Board President Jeff Daugherty, and then after a lunch, New House Executive Director and CEO Gordon Guy. Santa Barbara District Attorney Joyce Dudley “This year is Santa Barbara with NH Board Secretary and previous Heart CADA Executive Director Scott Whitely and of New House Award recipient Deborah New House’s 64th year of Adam Burridge of Project Recovery Talmage helping men recover from alcoholism and other drug addictions. It does it by providing an environment for sobriety to flourish, with 12 step programs, with structure, and accountability. That’s 64 years of rebuilding lives, of transforming lives, and of saving lives,” shared Daugherty. Guy brought each Board President Jeff Daugherty and guests (standing) Rochelle Zanini , Cathy Macaulay, Sandi Owens, Heart of New House Nelson Owens, and Diana Daugherty. Seated: Kerry Methner, Mark Whitehurst, Jeff and Jacquelin Award recipient to the

Honoree Charlie Alva was everywhere! Here he is between James Garcia and Erin Graffy de Garcia

stage, introducing them, sharing a bit about the importance of their support, and allowing them to tell their own story. Alva is a founding sponsor of the luncheon. A Korean War Veteran, he has a passion for life and for giving. Each year he extends his love and support to New House and several other non profits including Transition House, and the Nature Center at Lake Cachuma “for the kids!” Jenkins, longtime Executive Director of CADA recently retired, is an old friend to New House and to Gordon Guy, who early in his tenure as Executive Director selected her as the gold standard example of non-profit leadership. She is also a current board member. Next up Palminteri introduced Paula Lopez, who again created two moving documentary short biopics on New House graduates. Keeping things short, focused, and on time, the event ended with dessert (Passion Fruit Chiffon Cake with Raspberry Coulis in the shape of a heart) and a Scholarship Appeal. There’s still time to join in supporting the New House community. For more information visit www.sbnewhouse.org

Bathe like an Egyptian: Cleopatra’s Famed Beauty Secret, The Milk Bath By Kris Seraphine-Oster / Special to VOICE


Photo by Shirley Ann Aphrodite

HE BEAUTY SECRETS OF THE EGYPTIAN QUEEN, CLEOPATRA, are well documented in both fiction and history. After the 1963 epic blockbuster film Cleopatra was released, we have forever associated the femme fatale’s face with the Hollywood icon, Elizabeth Taylor. However, many historical accounts report that she was on the homely side. Even so, she was able to hook (despite her large, beak-shaped nose) any man that crossed her path. Cleopatra still is the symbol of the feminine power of seduction, perhaps because the greatest aphrodisiac is power. Cleopatra claimed it with abandon – seducing some of the most powerful statesmen the world has ever known: Julius Caesar and Mark Antony. Cleopatra mothered three sons with Mark Antony and together they plotted to rule the Roman Empire, which was their undoing. After deifying themselves in public ceremonies as Dionysus-Osiris and Venus-Isis, they forever became immortal lovers. The Egyptian queen was not just a political powerhouse. Cleopatra wrote a medical treatise about cosmetics, hygiene, and makeup! She knew the value of silky hair and dramatic, kohl-rimmed eyes. Her mastery over her image rivals the trendsetting shape-shifters of our own culture: think Madonna, Beyonce, and Lady Gaga. She befriended decadence and good skin exfoliation with her infamous, daily milk bath. I offer you my favorite recipe and it’s quite easy. We won’t be using donkey milk, like

Cleopatra did, but cow’s milk will work just as well. If you’re allergic to cow’s milk and are worried about putting it on your skin, goat’s milk will do the job. For the Vegans out there: sorry, almond or soy milk won’t cut the mustard. The skin softening agent in milk is lactic acid (an alpha hydroxy acid), which helps cleanse and release dead skin cells. Soak in this for 30 minutes and your skin will feel unbelievably soft. Plus, you will smell heavenly, like Venus herself. Ingredients: 3-4 Cups Organic Cow or Goat Milk 1-2 Cups Organic Honey 1 Cup Sea Salt ½ Cup Baking Soda Lavender Essential Oil Rose Essential Oil (Optional) Sandalwood Essential Oil (Optional) Fresh Flower Petals of Choice: Rose, Jasmine, Lavender, and Orange Blossom are my favorites.

Instructions: Pour your milk into a pot. When it is steaming, add your honey. Stir frequently until the honey is melted and blended into the milk. Remove the pot from the heat and add drops of essential oils – add as much fragrance as pleases you. As the milk concoction cools, down run your bath. Add sea salt and baking soda to the water, mixing with your hand so they distribute and dissolve. When you are ready to bathe, pour the entire contents of the pot into the bath – it will become a beautiful gold-white-ish color. Sprinkle in your selection of fresh flower petals. Step in and relax. Soak for 30 minutes or more.

Lit candles, soft music, and your favorite crystals will be a wonderful added touch and bring the sacred aspect of your Aphrodisiac beauty bath to life. Fill your bathroom with as much sensory beauty as possible!

Yatch Club Welcomes Rick Nahas

AN ANYONE TELL ME how to get over jet-lag? Feeling lagged, in all fairness, is just Mother Nature’s way of reminding us that we are still earth bound creatures not meant to traverse multiple time zones in less than a day. It’s not only passing through time that’s physically confusing, but the mind is also squeezed into making the adjustment. Picture the shock of landing at LAX when, just a short 12 hours before, I’d come from a herd of sheep grazing along a winding country road! Now, back in beautiful Santa Barbara, I’ve traded the serenity of the countryside for the glorious expanse of the Pacific ocean framed by the Channel Islands, the California sunshine, and the majesty of the surrounding mountains. Since I’ve been gone, there’s new news in the harbor community, as I discovered sitting under an umbrella on the deck of the Yacht Club last weekend. The biggest news is that the long awaited new General Manager has finally arrived at the Santa Barbara Yacht Club to the cheers of the entire membership! Richard Nahas comes to the position after 19 years as general manager of the Glen Annie Golf Club where he was head of all operations: the golf club and its activities, gourmet dining, banquet facilities, snack bar, community programs, and administration. Nahas was not only at Glen Annie, but was director of sales and marketing at nearby Sandpiper Golf Course where he developed strategies for not only one, but two championship golf courses. How impressive is that? Originally from the Los Angeles area, Nahas attended UCSB and, like so many out of area students before him, never left Santa Barbara after graduation. Thank you, Gauchos! His new position at the Yacht Club brings him full circle back to the ocean and yachting. “Some of my fondest memories as a child were spent sailing with my father out to Catalina or just spending the night on the boat in the Marina. Being involved with the joy of seamanship once again is the icing on the cake,” he shared. It seems the Yacht Club’s happiness at welcoming Nahas is indeed reciprocated. “I’m grateful to be the General Manger of an organization so rich in tradition and entrenched in our community, and I look forward to being part of the harbor community,” he added. Welcome to the club and to the harbor, Rich!

The Santa Barbara Harbor & Seafood Festival is Saturday, October 12th

Speaking of full circle, once again the 18th annual Santa Barbara Harbor & Seafood Festival will take place on Saturday, October 12th from 10am to 5pm. There will be over 50 vendors on and about the harbor area enhancing the restaurants and shops, as well as the Maritime Museum’s activities on walkways. There will be something there for everyone! A large selection of seafood delights will be offered by local fisherman accompanied by background music and activities for all ages. Seafood delights will include lobster, albacore, oysters, crab, fish tacos, and paella, topped with roasted corn, shortcake, and plenty of desserts and sweets. Beneath the tents lining the entire harbor area will be a huge selection of clothing, jewelry, hats, beachwear, and ocean related crafts on display for sale. To add to the fun, the face painting booth is always a popular spot for kids and their parents to enjoy. Volunteer fisherman operate the seafood booths, and volunteers from the Waterfront Department help make the day flow seamlessly. This is the biggest all-harbor event and is an occasion not to be missed. In another week, I’ll be jet-lag free and ready to ‘shop until I drop’ while noshing seafood delights. Hope to see you there... Sigrid Toye volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project. She is on the board of directors of the Maritime Museum and participates in Yacht Club activities. An educational/behavior therapist, Sigrid holds a Ph.D in clinical psychology. She loves all things creative, including her two grown children who are working artists.

Then, at 8pm October 24th, 25th, and 26th, the Department of Theatre and Dance will present Boys Like Us, a work by UC Santa Barbara professor of dance Brandon Whited. “It’s a coming of age story of a young gay boy, and how his relationships with himself and other people are changed in the course of this process,” Bridges said. “I’m excited by the idea of putting people into the audience of a dance performance who don’t traditionally come to dance performances,” he added. “I think these kinds of inter-campus conversations are really vital. One of the things I want to use the series for is to make new connections between groups interested in similar issues and ideas, but who are less often in conversation because of disciplinary boundaries. Many of us are doing similar work along similar ideas.” Tickets for Boys Like Us are $17 to $19 general admission, and $13 to $15 for UC Santa Barbara faculty, staff, and students.

In a three-year study, she explored how teachers and students come to identify certain students as exceptionally gifted, and found that label gradually got attached to “a small collection of white boys.” Finally, at 1pm Novebmer 18th in the McCune Conference Room, Washington University sociologist Adia Harvey Wingfield will talk about her research into the ways men tend to rise to the top of femaledominated professions such as health care, and how black men’s experiences generally do not follow that pattern. Bridges is well aware that many men are reluctant to question a system that gives them some clear advantages (along with burdensome expectations). But he is optimistic that this series may open some minds. “Sometimes I think men just need permission to have these kinds of conversations,” he said. “Hopefully, with this series, we provide permission in a variety of different forms.” The annual Critical Issues in America series is sponsored by the College of Letters and Science. It is co-sponsored by the Office of the Executive Vice Chancellor, the Office of the Associate Vice Chancellor for Diversity and Equity, and the Academic Senate.

Honoring A Lifelong Force For Peace Nuclear Age Peace Foundation ~ Evening for Peace

David Krieger to receive Distinguished Peace Leadership Award from Daniel Ellsberg


Contributed By Sandy Jones / NAPF

IPPING THEIR HAT TO A STRONG FOUNDING VOICE FOR PEACE, David Krieger, who co-founded the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation (NAPF) in 1982 and has served as its President for nearly four decades, will be honored with the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation’s 2019 Distinguished Peace Leadership Award at the 36th Annual Evening For Peace. The event will be held at the Four Seasons Resort, The Biltmore on Sunday, October 20th. Daniel Ellsberg, NAPF Distinguished Fellow and author of the book, Doomsday Machine, will be the evening’s guest speaker and will present the Distinguished Peace Leadership Award to Krieger. Ellsberg is a former national security advisor who released the Pentagon Papers in 1971. In 2006, Ellsberg received the Right Livelihood Award, known as the David Krieger “Alternative Nobel Prize,” “for putting peace and truth first, at considerable personal risk, and dedicating his life to inspiring others to follow his example.” This year’s event will also include a rare opportunity to experience a live performance of Soka University of America’s Koto Club. The students will play the hauntingly beautiful Japanese koto wearing traditional Japanese kimonos for their performance. The evening will celebrate David Krieger who is retiring at year’s end to become president emeritus of the Foundation. He has dedicated his life’s work to ending the nuclear age, lecturing throughout the world on issues of peace, war, international law, and nuclear abolition. Under Krieger’s leadership, he and the Foundation have been nominated ten times for the Nobel Peace Prize. He has written or

co-authored 26 books. He is both a mentor and a respected colleague to countless people all over the world and has served as an advisor to many peace organizations. Krieger has been a steady voice in the struggle for peace and a nuclear weapon-free world. His stand against these weapons of mass annihilation has never wavered. It never will. The Distinguished Peace Leadership Award is presented annually to an individual who has demonstrated courageous leadership in the cause of peace. The Foundation has a rich history of honoring remarkable leaders. Past recipients include Beatrice Fihn, the XIVth Dalai Lama, Dr. Helen Caldicott, Walter Cronkite, Setsuko Thurlow, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Captain Jacques-Yves Cousteau, and Medea Benjamin, to mention just a few. The Evening For Peace raises much-needed funds to support the Foundation’s work for a world free of nuclear weapons and inspires the next generation of young leaders to work to toward achieving a more just and peaceful world. Many students from local colleges and high schools will attend this year’s event thanks to sponsors who have underwritten the cost of their tickets. This year, proceeds from the event will also fund the newly established David Krieger Fund For Peace. Created to honor David Krieger’s life’s work, the Fund will serve to ensure the future of the Foundation as it works to create a just and peaceful world, free of nuclear weapons.

Beverley Jackson, Special to VOICE

O MUCH HAS BEEN GOING ON IT SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE TO KEEP UP. First and most important was trying to get information on dear Father Larry who underwent emergency open heart surgery in Rome just after leading a long strenuous pilgrimage following the path of St. Francis to Assisi. They came prepared for the heat at the A visit to the Santa Barbara Mission was another Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation luncheon: Elia Rodriguez, Rachel Ponce, Sarah one of my activities. Maria McCall put together a McElellard, and Nicolette Worley wonderful private tour for a small group of us to see the hidden treasures of the Mission. The very knowledgeable Executive Director of the Archive Library, Dr. Monica Orozco, was our host. It was particularly interesting to me to see the Archival library. In 1967 at the urging of the late Brigitte Welty, Gold Ribbon Luncheon Co-Chair; Eileen Dill, Gold Virginia Martini (better known Ribbon Luncheon Co-Chair; Jim Bechtel and Vanessa Bechtel, Gold as the first wife of Cary Grant!) Ribbon Honorees; Lindsey Leonard, Executive Director; Rich Schuette, Board President and Pearl Chase, I headed up the committee to raise the money to build this archival library – and I had never before seen it finished! She showed us fascinating books and paintings from the past, wearing clean white gloves before touching anything. One of most interesting items was a gigantic ancient hymnal with beautiful illuminations on some of its pages. The book happened to be opened to an illumination of St. Francis of Assisi dated 1774. It was interesting to see that the musical notes were squares instead of the shapes we know today. We also toured the lovely gardens and lunched in the Shaun and Carla Friars dining room. Tomson I’m not going to tell you about the big classic car show at the Santa Barbara Polo Field, because everyone has written about it. I will say the catering truck they had made one of the very best melted cheese sandwiches I’ve ever had! I will tell you about the beautifully planned Teddy Bear Cancer Foundation’s 7th annual Gold Ribbon luncheon. It was held in the green lawn area at the back of the Four Seasons Biltmore. It turned out to be a very hot day, but the group had planned for luncheon tables to all be under an open tent and big white umbrellas dotted the lawn over seating areas. The thick green lawn was a bit difficult for me to walk over amidst the deep crowds of people. Then suddenly a very tall handsome young man Ryan Gosselin (no relative of beloved Dr. Larry) appeared and took my arm and maneuvered me through the crowd, found my seat, and got me safely and comfortably settled. Needless to say, some of the stories of children who had Dr Monica Orozco shows off treasures cancer were heartbreaking, but this group has brought so much help and happiness to hundreds who have heard that horrible diagnosis. Good news was that there are 350,000 survivors of childhood cancer in the United States. Bad statistics, one of every 225 children will be diagnosed with cancer before they are 21. I was surprised to see what a young group this organization has. And they now have a junior group starting age nine who were fundraising for them all summer. They did everything from bake sales and baby sitting to car washing and lemonade stands. And they earned over $16,000 this summer. The list of major donors and sponsors is too long to start. This year, there were 397 attendees who helped contribute to TBCF’s September goal of raising $430,000. Each of the $150 luncheon tickets, Nancy Newquist Nolan the money from the junior group, the and me in front the Saint Ancient hymnal brought out of silent auction, and the raffle tickets all Barbara statue in the inner vaults to show us.
