Celebrating 50 Years 1969-2019


EALIZING THE POTENTIAL FOR GROWTH AND ENTHUSIASM, as well as a zest for competition in people with intellectual challenges, Special Olympics of Southern California has carried out their mission for the last 50 years. In this Golden Anniversary year, the Santa Barbara region has served 341 athletes in community programs and 844 in school programs across eleven sports. So now, the thriving program is taking a moment to look back and say thank-you to their year round sponsors and the 500 plus volunteers who make their programs and events possible. Special Olympics was the vision of Eunice Kennedy Shriver. She believed in justice, but in the late 1950s and early 1960s, she saw little justice in the way people with intellectual disabilities were treated. She saw they were excluded and routinely placed in custodial institutions. They were often ignored and neglected, yet she knew they had many talents and gifts to offer. She believed that if people with intellectual disabilities were given the same opportunities and experiences as everyone else, they could accomplish far more than anyone ever thought possible. She put that vision into action in 1962 by inviting young people with intellectual disabilities to a summer day camp she hosted in her backyard. She called it “Camp Shriver.” The goal was to explore the children’s skills in a variety of sports and physical activities. The idea behind that first Camp Shriver began to grow. In July 1968, the first International Special Olympics Games were held in Chicago, Illinois, USA. In her remarks at the Opening Ceremony, she said the inaugural Chicago Special Olympics proved “a very fundamental fact” – that children with intellectual disabilities can be exceptional athletes and that “through sports they can realize their potential for growth.” She pledged that this new organization, Special Olympics, would offer people with intellectual disabilities everywhere, “the chance to play, the chance to compete, and the chance to grow.” What began as one woman’s vision evolved into Special Olympics International – a global movement that today serves more than four million people with intellectual disabilities in more than 170 countries. In 1968 Eunice invited Rafer Johnson, an Olympic Gold Decathlon winner to attend the first Special Olympic Games in Chicago. Rafer wrote later, “I thought it was a great concept and I wanted to be a part of this program of support of children and adults with intellectual disabilities.” Rafer was hooked and had the idea to start California Special Olympics in 1969. With Rafer’s great step in 1969, an Odyssey of joy and service began, leading up to this 50th year when Special Olympics Southern California is celebrating their 50th Anniversary of providing year-round sports training and competition to over 35,206 athletes throughout the Southern California. Opportunities to participate in Special Olympics programs are open to everyone, a hallmark of the welcoming program’s inclusiveness. Become an Athlete: Special Olympics athletes are children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The minimum age requirement for participation is eight years old with no maximum age. Programs are offered at no cost and provide athletes with the chance to develop physical fitness, sports skills, self-esteem, and social skills. Athletes meet new friends and experience great rewards in achieving their best. Become a Volunteer: Special Olympics would not exist without the energy, enthusiasm, and generosity of its volunteers. The time commitment varies from a few hours per year at specific events to working several hours a week year-round. Volunteers support every facet of the organization’s mission, ranging from, but not limited to hands on sports training as coaches, organization wide day-to-day operations, school youth based programs, building awareness, creating partnerships, and above all, being committed to our athletes. Become a Supporter: Special Olympics provides year-round programs at no cost to the athletes and their families, thanks to the support of individuals, foundations, corporations and community groups. For every dollar raised 86¢ goes directly to our programs. Supporters can cheer on our athletes at local competitions and watch their contribution make an immediate impact. • Attend or sponsor an event • Sponsor an athlete or underwrite a program/ competition • Provide in-kind donated goods or services • Create corporate volunteer teams • Carry out cause marketing & individual fundraising Find out more about Special Olympics Santa Barbara at www.sosc.org/santabarbara or by calling 805-884-1516.

Sam was a key defender on his floor hockey team and helped lead the Santa Barbara Dolphins to a 3rd place finish at the Floor Hockey Championship this past March in Bakersfield. Sam is a year round athlete who also competes in tennis and bowling. In describing Sam Jauregui, tennis coach Liz Frech said, “We call him ‘Sam Sam.’ He is our comforter who does his best to make us all laugh. We know that in sports (as in life) there are frustrating moments and a little levity and kind words go a long way. He has matured a lot in his tennis and attitude over the years. He is always grateful for each day, and says thank you after each practice.” In addition to Sam’s athletic abilities, he is a key contributor to the Special Olympics programs and volunteers in the office. He is always eager to help with the Tip A Cop events, runs with law enforcement officers in the Torch Run, and participates in the Annual Give-A-Palooza fundraising event. “Sam and I have worked together in the Special Olympics office doing a variety of jobs. Sam is always ready and willing to do the job,” shared Coach Dan Weiner. “He has a great attitude and it is a pleasure working with him.”

with respect to women officers is the increasing number who are serving in their services’ mainstream combat occupations. These include pilots, navigators, and other aircrew in all services, surface, and submarine warfare in the Navy, and long-range air defense in the Army. Women now command Air Wings and Naval Fleets, as well as combatant vessels, long-range artillery battalions, air squadrons, and carrier strike groups. Women aviators, surface warfare officers, and long-range field artillery officers have been promoted to flag and general officer—a few have attained four-star rank. As women progress through the ranks in recently-opened ground combat units and occupations, we can expect them to reach command positions in platoons, companies, battalions, and brigades, right up through general officer ranks.” Global Gurus International, a Britishbased provider of resources for leadership, communication and sales training, ranked McDargh as number #1 among the World’s Top 30 Communication Professionals following a global survey of 22,000 business professionals.

accompanied by a skilled interpreter, filmmaker Joon-ho stated, “The architectural setting really drove the mood of my film, almost as an overarching character in the film. I found it interesting to show the different levels that the people exist in and the film is kind of a metaphor of our existence. I like to mix styles in moods, it is what keeps me interested in the journey of my characters.” Parasite could be one of the most outstanding films of 2019 and brings to mind some of Alfred Hitchcock’s psychological thrillers where the audience knows secrets that the onscreen characters have not discovered yet. A scene of urban flooding is a memorable centerpiece of the film where the lower income levels of society face the full force of environmental disasters. This film will likely be showered with year-end film awards as Joon-ho’s defiantly unique mix of humor and intensity are expertly layered. Fortunately for Santa Barbara audiences, Parasite is scheduled to be shown at the downtown Paseo Nuevo Cinemas this week. One of the dramatically balanced films of the year, Parasite should deliver a successful reception from both audiences and critics – a mission accomplished by this creative filmmaking team.

EVERAL NOTEWORTHY FILMS have screened for the SBIFF Cinema Society over the past month and a couple were especially keenly realized and films that are must sees. First off, the recently released Netflix-funded film The King, directed by the actor-directorwriter David Michôdn (Animal Kingdom) and starring Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name). The director co-wrote an earth-bound script with accomplished Australian actor Joel Edgerton (Loving, The Great Gatsby). The script is a contemporary adaptation of Shakespeare’s historical plays that include Henry IV, Parts 1 & 2 and Henry V in kinship to terrific films of the past including one of Orson Welles’ finest achievements, Chimes at Midnight and both of Sir Laurence Olivier’s and Kenneth Branagh’s cinematic versions of Henry V from 1944 and 1989 respectively. The muck and grime and medieval weapons illustrated in director Michôdn’s take reveal a primitive yet intimate brutality in the battle scenes. The landscape settings, filmed on location in Hungary, but standing in for England of the early 1400s provide the remarkable terrain where most of the action takes place.

HIS IS THE TIME OF YEAR for the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum’s annual Tall Ship Education Program aboard Spirit of Dana Point – a not-to-miss opportunity, so I dropped by for a visit. As one of the Museum’s most popular programs for young people, the Tall Ship Program is always booked and this week was no exception. I arrived just in time for the last group of 20 students! The ship, Greg Gorga, Executive Director added, “Thanks to the support of our donors and local foundations, the docked in the heart of the harbor, is a replica of a 1770’s privateer schooner and comes to Santa program is provided free of charge to Title I schools. The Spirit program is one of our most Barbara from the Ocean Institute of San Diego. It has appeared in the harbor every year since popular education programs and one of the most rewarding.” 2001 for the benefit of the CORE 4th grade California history curriculum. Watching a group of While on the subject of generosity at the Maritime Museum, author Willard enthusiastic nine and ten year olds, standing at military attention being ‘mustered’ as crew by a Thompson, a past board president, has generously donated all the rights to his nonfiction barking, order-espousing First Mate, is a real experience! book, Keepers of the Light: The History of the Point Conception Lighthouse, to the SBMM. Based on Richard Henry Dana Jr’s book Two Years Before the Mast, this final group of 4th All the proceeds from Thompson’s book, including online purchases through Amazon and graders had the opportunity to relive the unique circumstances Dana faced as he left Boston and sales through the museum’s store, are to be donated. Thompson wrote Keepers of the Light rounded the Cape Horn of South America headed to the California coastline to trade hides and during the time that the Point Conception Lighthouse Fresnel Lens was in the process sallow. Having read an abridged version of Dana’s book for better understanding of the challenges of finding it’s new home in the museum complex. It’s a worthy testament indeed to the of the voyage, the kids are ready to begin their adventure – without the benefit of concerned importance of preserving the Maritime History on the California coastline. Willard Thompson parents! During their 18 hours aboard the schooner they lived the life of an 1800’s sailor, which included hide gathering, cooking meals for the crew, rigging a block and tackle system to load cargo, ship maintenance, raising and lowering the flags, and of course, standing watch all night long, which made me think it’s not all that bad being in a modern kitchen banging away at those pots and pans. After all, if a 4th grader could manage the rigging of a tall ship, stand watch all night, and prepare meals in an ancient galley, the least I could do is to stop whining. I could be the one swabbing decks! “These young people learn about our ocean and develop an appreciation of maritime traditions, while experiencing life in another time,” observed Liz Perry, Director of Education at the Maritime Museum. “Through hands-on activities such as problem solving, teamwork, and critical thinking they learn to work as a functioning unit as sailors. Plus they love it … it seems the harder it is, the more fun they have.” Perry added, “These are local kids...406 of them, actually, from eleven local schools all over the County. Some of them have never been down to the harbor, or even our coastline, so it’s quite an exciting experience for them… and of course, for us.” Sigrid Toye volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project. She is on the board of directors of the Maritime Museum The Spirit of Dana Point Tall Ship Education and participates in Yacht Club activities.

HEN THE QUEEN OF ENGLAND VISITED SANTA BARBARA she wore a simple felt hat, perfect considering the rain that greeted her to our town. Actually, I think she’s happiest wearing a triangular scarf tied around her head which is what she wears when she’s with her horses she loves. But for the annual opening of Parliament, it is tradition to go all out, fancy flowing velvet and white ermine cloak behind her, ornate gown, and on her head an Imperial Crown that lives in the Tower of London and weighs in at least three pounds. It has 3,000 diamonds, (those diamonds get heavy), 17 sapphires, eleven emeralds, 270 pearls, and lots of rubies. But for the opening of Parliament two weeks ago, she threw the country into total confusion by wearing her oldest tiara, the George IV State Diadem. Her comment about the change was, “You couldn’t look down at your speech without it falling off!” referring to the usual Imperial Crown. No, it’s definitely not a surprise that the 93 year old Queen of England chose the light weight crown this year. It only has 1,333 diamonds weighing in at 320 carats and 170 pearls. And instead of the heraldic fleurs-de-lis usually seen on British crowns, the diadem has four bouquets of roses, thistles, and shamrocks, the floral symbols of England, Scotland, and Ireland The Queen in SB with Mayor Sheila Lodge alternating with four jeweled crosses. George IV had the State Diadem made in 1830 at a cost of 8,216 English pounds. He wore it over his velvet cap of maintenance in the procession to his coronation at Westminster Abbey. Doesn’t sound much more comfortable than the one she chose not to wear to me! It’s been awhile since I wrote about an important person who lived in Santa Barbara, and Veteran’s Day approaches, so here’s Yesterday. I’m speaking of the late Major General Pierpont Morgan Hamilton. If his name sounds familiar, it could be that he was descended from two United States Presidents and there’s a fabulous library in New York that was his uncle J. Pierpont Morgan’s home. When I first knew Norah and Peter Hamilton (his name of George IV crown he had made for choice) they lived in a large home in Montecito decorated by Dick his coronation. The Queen wore it Meyn. I was impressed that their dogs’ beds were covered in the opening Parliament in a redone simplified form. same English chintz as was used freely by Dick throughout the home. In later years, they moved to a condo on the beach near me. Peter was well along in years and he liked a quiet life of bridge at Valley Club and walking his dog Frosty on the beach. He and my then dog, Rosie O’Grady, used to take almost daily walks on the beach and sometimes not talk at all. But the things Peter could have talked about! An easterner with a school background of Groton and Harvard University, he left Harvard temporarily in April 1917 (during WWI) to perform special technical work in the marine division of the NYC police department. On August 7th, 1917, he enlisted in the aviation section, Signal Reserve Corps at the Military Aeronautics at Cornell University. At the end of the war he was honorably discharged from service, but he was back in the army in February 1942 (WWII) and commissioned a major in the US Army. Among his activities, he was appointed assistant chief of staff for intelligence of the sub-task force assault on Northern French Morocco. During this assignment, Major General Pierpont Morgan now a Lieutenant Colonel, he earned the Medal of Honor on a Hamilton mission with Colonel Demas Craw for which they volunteered with the French commander in French Morocco to try to bring about an end of hostilities. They landed their boat under heavy fire and set out for French headquarters in a light truck. Colonel Craw was killed by machine-gun fire that hit their truck. Hamilton was captured but successfully completed the mission with the local French commander for the cessation of hostilities. Among the medals he wore when he retired were the Medal of Honor, Legion of Merit with Oak Leaf Cluster, World War I Victory Medal, American Campaign Medal, World War II Victory Medal, Army of Occupation Medal, Order of the British Empire, Order of Merito Cristo (Portugal) Air Force Longevity Service Award, and many more. 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.

Heal the Ocean Benefit 2019





Santa Barbara Days & Evenings Priscilla, SantaBarbaraSeen.com

By Gail Kvistad / Special to VOICE

EAL THE OCEAN CONTINUES TO MAKE WAVES and direct the current environmental landscape in Santa Barbara to protect more than just our oceans. For over 20 years the organization has been working with city and state governments on initiatives to remove pollution and ensure our waters are clean and safe for all to enjoy. The salt of the earth and local environmental pearls came out to the El Paseo on a recent Saturday evening to support Heal The Ocean 5 2019 Annual Benefit Celebration, and founder and director Hillary Hauser did not disappoint! The evening began with Hillary Tequila toasting her friend and long time supporter, celebrity and local resident, Julia Louis Dreyfus who unveiled the pioneering initiative and latest monumental mission of Heal The 1 Ocean – a pilot Styrofoam recycling and repurposing program with MarBorg to launch in March 2020. Now all those coffee cups will be up-cycled into a plethora of products from picture frames to hardware parts, all the brainchild of Hillary Hauser and her longtime board of directors who are committed to protecting our environment and bettering our future with support and collaboration from the Borgatello family at MarBorg. HTO is also celebrating Montecito Sanitary District diving into the action and supporting a pilot recycled water program in our community. Heal The Ocean has long protected our pristine Santa Barbara coastline with initiatives like the capping of leaking oil wells in Summerland, a project in collaboration with the State Lands Commission and made possible by generous support from locals Michael and Nora Hurley. Current Septic system removal and pollution are projects underway and pioneering research in the field of recycled water systems are a few of the ways HTO benefits everyone in our community. 2 – Let’s all celebrate Heal The Ocean!

Thomas Tighe Honored As Healthcare Hero


OCAL HEALTHCARE GIANT, THOMAS TIGHE, President and CEO of Direct Relief was honored as the Healthcare Hero for 2019 by Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics at a luncheon held October 16th at the Montecito Country Club. Tighe has been an advocate for health services for low-income individuals and has guided Direct Relief, since 2000, with grants exceeding $40 million and support provided in excess of $4 billion. During his tenure, the company has been named among the world’s most innovative nonprofits by Fast Company. Direct Relief is headquartered in Santa Barbara. The audience at the sold out event was welcomed by Melinda Stavely, Board President and then screened two videos, 1 one about Neighborhood Clinics and the other a Tribute to Thomas Tighe. The video Tribute was a compelling highlight, according to Maria Long, Director of Development and Community Awareness. A collaboration done with Jeff Martin, it brought together staff from many of the communities and organizations where Direct Reilief has stepped in after a 2 disaster, including some impacted by The Thomas Fire and Montecito Debris Flow. Also assisting with the program were Dr. Charles Fenzi, CEO and Chief Medical Officer for SBNC; Rev. Mark Asman, SBNC campaign co-chair; and Dorothy Largay, Direct Relief Board Member. The Neighborhood Clinics consist of four medical clinics, two dental clinics, an integrated care clinic, the Bridge Clinic, and health promotion services that serve and provide care to over 22,000 unduplicated patients a year. This was the first time since its major renovation that the 3 Montecito Country Club had hosted a full, non-profit event. Long related, “They did a beautiful job keeping it organic and simple.”

Eagles Nest Ocean Views

By Kris Seraphine-Oster / Special to VOICE

N THE MYSTERIOUS AND MYSTICAL SEASON OF AUTUMN, the veils between worlds becomes thinner. I find this time of year perfect for divination, visioning, and of course, LOVE magic. Venus herself appears in the symbol of the five pointed star, known as the pentagram. Often misinterpreted as a Satanic symbol, the pentagram is a powerful representation of protection and manifested abundance. Five is one of the numbers associated with Venus because of her association with the pentagram and pentacle. When you slice a luscious, red apple in half at its equator, at the center lies a hidden pentagram formed by five seeds. Apple cores are known as “Stars of Knowledge” by the Roma peoples (popularly referred to as “gypsies”). Eve was tempted by the serpent in the Garden of Eden to eat the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge – the actual fruit is not named in the Bible. But, the Garden is associated with story to the ancient Greek Garden of Hesperides, from which we hear many legends about Golden Apples. One such myth tells of the woes of a man named Melanion, who wished to marry Atalanta by beating her in a race. No men had been able to best her speed, and were put to death. The desperate suitor prayed to Aphrodite for help, since he knew he could not legitimately beat Atalanta in a race. The goddess of love gave him three golden apples to distract his fleet-footed huntress. He won the race and wed his true love. The Arthurian legends recount the priestesses, led first by the Lady of the Lake, who was succeeded by the great sorceress and half sister of King Arthur, Morgan LeFay, who lived on the mystical Island of Avalon (“the isle of apple trees”) and were able to lift the mists and reveal the path of the soul. When I visited the physical location where it is believed that Avalon once existed, the town of Glastonbury in the UK, I made a pilgrimage to the apple orchard on the side of the Tor. If you leave a small ribbon, stone, or crystal at the base of


Voice of Venus the tree from which you pick an apple (or two or three), your love is sure to be blessed. Apples in many cultures have been prized as the fruit of the Goddess and the symbol of knowledge, sexuality, love, and temptation. Apple Love Magic 101

Are you ready to open your heart to love and attract your life partner? Or, perhaps you are already in a relationship with that special someone and want to grow closer. Apple magic is one of the easiest and most delicious ways to promote the growth of love within and around you! Begin by holding your apple and thinking of your true love. If you’re currently single, picture the ideal romantic partner in your mind’s eye and feel the love flowing to them and back to you. Do this visualization for as long as you like. The purpose of it is to evoke deep and strong feelings of love. When you feel all nice, warm, and tingly, send that energy into your apple. Now, it’s time to incarnate that energy by taking a bite. The eating of the apple represents becoming one with your true love. If you enjoy a raw apple you can take a bite and then slice it up and offer a sliver to Venus on your altar or shrine space. Eat each slice as if you are offering your true love the food of the goddess … because, in fact you are! I love to slice them up, sprinkle them with something sweet (honey, brown sugar, stevia, or monkfruit), and add vanilla paste/extract, cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and cardamon. I mix it all up, put the spiced apples in a baking dish with four to five pats of butter on top and then bake for 30 minutes at 350°. Stir the apples after 15 minutes to make sure all the slices get coated by the melted, buttery goodness. Tip: don’t slice the apple pieces too thin. Cut them at about ⅓ to ½ inch thick. Optional yumminess: add hot apples to Vanilla ice cream and pour on a bit of melted caramel sauce. The baked apple slices make the kitchen smell divine and attract Venusian abundance of all kinds: love, money, joy, and delight.

Surreal Virtual Reality Studio:

436 State Unit B


RIDAY NIGHT, I sauntered out into the darkness of lower State Street for some fresh air and was summoned by an intriguing sign – Virtual Reality: free demonstration – to a mysterious, sedate, indigo-glowing room (the new Surreal Virtual Reality Studio). Inside, people were battling dragons, morphing into knights in shining armor, and fending off demonic monsters. I opted for a chill ride in a hot air balloon, and was instantly transported to the Italian Alps, companioned by eagles and eerie men in jet propulsion flying suits, Tony Stark-style. The scenery was absolutely awe-inspiring, and as I moved in 360 degrees, it felt as real as anything. All it took to get there was putting on an Iron Man-like headset, with the help of Manager Alejandro Carbajal, who was gracious with his time, with me and a couple of college kids romping on imaginal horses.“Teens and young adults don’t have so many entertainment options here; I think Virtual Reality will become a staple.” Team Leader Mark Carlson oozed, “Working here is so great, it’s so people-centric: people are bringing friends and family, even young kids. VR, in the near future, will have a big part to play in computers and education! We’re creating regulars, so we know people’s names. Josh and Haley just played the Horror Games we brought in especially for Halloween.” Indeed, the news is spreading: as my balloon was landing safely on a shimmering lake, celebrity news anchor John Palminteri came hurrying in with a friend, who proclaimed, “We are just here to try out the Virtual Reality!”

Planners could When it comes to evacuation plans, the primary

strategy in the U.S. is to get out. Unfortunately, with these large, fast-moving fires, some people aren’t leaving in time — or don’t have enough time to escape. “That’s a big part of what we saw up north this year,” said Moritz. “Lots of people leaving too late and either dying in their cars or having to get out of their cars and run.” Both Roberts and Moritz hope that California will continue to provide earlier evacuation warnings to people in the fire’s path. The researchers also agree that we should consider additional strategies for protecting ourselves, such as the use of local fire shelters (much like tornado shelters), which could protect individuals who find themselves outpaced by the flames. The practice of sheltering in place is so common in Australia that the country has an associated saying: “Prepare, Stay and Defend, or Leave Early.” In essence, property owners decide whether to flee the flames or hunker down and protect their land, and many of them are prepared for just such a situation, said Moritz. This strategy has now begun to emerge in the U.S. For instance, Pepperdine University, in Malibu, told students to shelter in place during the November 2018 Woolsey fire, since the school’s concrete buildings and well-watered lawns were unlikely to burn. “The question is do we want to advocate shelterin-place?” said Moritz. “Most firefighters do not because it’s a lot of liability for them. They want to get this message really clear, ‘when we tell you to go, you go.’ And there’s no gray area here.” “But there is a gray area,” he said, “because what if people don’t get the message in time?” We don’t have an education campaign or a plan for this unfortunate and quite deadly possibility, he added. Australia has also taken a more nuanced approach to fire warnings since the Black Saturday bushfires of 2009, which claimed 173 lives, according to official findings. The country has since revamped its evacuation protocols. “Now there doesn’t even have to be a fire for them to trigger an evacuation,” said Moritz — the potential danger of a particularly hot, dry, windy day can prompt an evacuation order. California may do well adopting a similarly cautious approach, Roberts and Moritz suggested.

Out in the wild, management works only up to a point: until shifting conditions change the game. “Fires are behaving in ways that many of these agencies have not experienced before,” said Roberts. “Under extreme weather conditions the best management in the forests is probably not going to be good enough.” Different ecosystems have different fire regimes. Yellowstone’s lodgepole pine forests have adapted to immense conflagrations that strip the landscape once every few centuries. Much of the California chaparral, on the other hand, has evolved to cope with fires sweeping through every 30 to 60 years. “The natural fire regime of all these systems actually varies quite a bit,” Moritz explained, “but the key is that we want

fire in those systems doing the right kind of work that they’re adapted to.” California’s forests and chaparral are adapted to periodic fires. Many plants even require fire at some point in their lifecycles. Take the bigpod ceanothus, a shrub endemic to California’s central coast and Channel Islands. It needs fire for its seeds to germinate, otherwise they lie dormant in the soil. However, smaller, more frequent fires can kill new shoots and sprouts before they can prepare themselves for the next fire. What’s more, large fires can occur in surprisingly rapid succession under severe weather or drought conditions. “Under extreme conditions it only takes maybe two or three years of recovery before a fire can easily spread through an older scar,” said Roberts. This leaves the landscape vulnerable to invasive grasses, which can go up in flame on a yearly cycle. “It’s a positive feedback loop,” added Moritz. “You have more and more fire in the landscape, which is knocking out more and more native chaparral, bringing more grasses and fire to the landscape.” Some fires are driven by accumulated fuel. For these, a thick layer of dry underbrush from decades of fire suppression can lead to an inferno. “However there’s a tradeoff between the weather conditions and the fuel,” said Moritz. “When the weather conditions are bad, the fuel doesn’t matter as much, and when the conditions are mild, the fuel characteristics matter a lot more.” “Under extreme conditions, fires just burn everything in their paths,” added Roberts. And as the climate shifts, the Western U.S. has experienced more frequent, more severe weather conditions. Higher average temperatures, prolonged droughts and lower humidity all contribute to the region’s growing fire problem. In California, these conditions are often exacerbated by intense, dry winds that bear down upon the coasts from the state’s interior. “Given that there’s going to be big fires, and there’s likely going to be no way to prevent them from happening, what we need to do is figure out ways to minimize damage,” said Roberts. “We have to adapt.” “For us it’s fires, but for other places it’s floods, and other places it’s hurricanes, and then other places it’s sea level rise,” he added. “There’s all these things that we’re going to have to be pretty adept on our feet and adapt to.”.

The County & Goleta Union School District Address Food Waste


N A PARTNERSHIP BETWEEN THE SANTA BARBARA COUNTY PUBLIC WORKS DEPARTMENT AND GOLETA UNION SCHOOL DISTRICT (GUSD), nine elementary schools have successfully implemented food share and food scraps composting programs. This program has made a huge environmental impact by preventing thousands of pounds of fruit, milk containers, and packaged food from heading to the landfill. “Food that is thrown in the trash currently ends up buried in the landfill where it slowly releases methane, a potent greenhouse gas that is one of the largest contributors to climate change,” explained Program Specialist Sam Dickinson. In addition to reducing greenhouse gases, the program helps students and staff develop good habits for disposing food waste. “Learning extends beyond the classroom. The cafeteria is a place for students to not only be exposed to new foods but also serves as a resource for students to learn about sustainability,” Gshared USD Food Services Director Kim Leung. “ We are proud to be making a difference on this planet for future generations and beyond.” With the new Food Share Program, students place unwanted qualifying food and beverage items on designated share carts so that others can enjoy them during lunch. The carts are located in school lunch areas and are managed by cafeteria staff and adult volunteers. The County, in partnership with local environmental education group Explore Ecology, has increased student engagement by holding assemblies at participating schools. The County Public Health Department has also helped ensure food sharing safety. Supervising Environmental Health Specialist Kendra Wise says that this program is a “great way for schools to provide additional food to hungry people while keeping safe-to-eat foods out of our landfills. The program teaches students about food safety as well as the environmental impacts our daily actions can have. Santa Barbara County Public Health Department is excited to partner with our local schools and the Public Works Department to help make this program a success.” GUSD has also implemented a kitchen food scraps recycling program, and several schools have started pilot programs to collect student plate waste for composting. Public Works Intern Celeste Argueta has helped support these programs at Isla Vista Elementary School and Kellogg Elementary School. Argueta related, “I am extremely proud of the District’s efforts to compost student plate waste. The schools are making a positive environmental impact and are setting a great example for other schools.” A new food waste reduction guide was recently developed for schools called Food Forward: School Edition, and provides schools with resources to start their own food waste reduction and composting programs. For more information about this resource and food waste programs, call 805-882-3618 or visit the County’s waste reduction website, www.LessIsMore.org. For information on how to compost where you live, visit www.LessIsMore.org/Compost.

Cottage Heart and Vascular Center Surpasses 300 TAVR Procedures


HE COTTAGE HEART AND VASCULAR CENTER at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital has surpassed more than 300 transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) procedures. TAVR makes it possible to replace a heart valve without openheart surgery. More than 1.5 million people nationwide suffer from aortic stenosis, a serious medical condition where the aortic valve begins to narrow, reducing blood flow from the aorta to the rest of the body. This can cause shortness of breath, dizziness, and heart failure. The standard treatment is an aortic valve replacement. However, many patients, especially the elderly, are not able to have open-heart surgery due to the risk of complications. TAVR involves a collapsible aortic heart valve that is inserted into the body via a catheter through the leg, and threaded up to the heart. The breakthrough technology means a surgical incision through the chest is not needed. The first TAVR was performed at Cottage in September 2015, and Margaret Kalin of Lompoc was among the earliest group of patients to have the procedure. She recently celebrated her 102nd birthday. “I had my TAVR when I was 98. I feel great!” Margaret said. “The doctors and nurses at Cottage were the best. Everyone was just wonderful.” “Since we launched TAVR four years ago, we’ve completed 314 procedures,” said Dr. Joseph Aragon, interventional cardiologist on the TAVR team. “We’ve seen remarkable results with our patients.” Dr. Michael Shenoda, interventional cardiologist on the Cottage TAVR team said, “TAVR is truly a life-changing procedure.”

Governor Signs Jackson Bill To Assess The Price Tag Of Shutting Down Oil And Gas Infrastructure


S THE STATE WORKS TO COMBAT CLIMATE CHANGE and move toward a fossil fuel-free future, Governor Gavin Newsom recently signed Senator HannahBeth Jackson (D-Santa Barbara)’s legislation to assess the eventual price tag of shutting down and cleaning up California’s oil and gas infrastructure. Senate Bill 551 directs the Division of Oil, Gas and Geothermal Resources (DOGGR) to develop a process for assessing the costs of decommissioning all oil and gas infrastructure within its jurisdiction, and requires operators of an oil or gas facility to report its total liability for plugging and abandoning all wells and other facilities beginning in July 1, 2022 and at least every five years thereafter. “I am very pleased Governor Newsom signed this bill into law, recognizing it as a key step in the planning process as we transition away from fossil fuels. If we do not know or fully plan for these costs, the public, in far too many instances, will be left unfairly holding the bag for this industry’s mess,” said Jackson. Over the next several decades, California will face the significant challenge of infrastructure that remains from oil and gas production. While oil and gas operators are required to bear the ultimate financial responsibility for shutting down their wells, removing infrastructure, and remediating sites, in several cases they are refusing to do so, leaving California taxpayers paying the costs. One example of California state funds used to decommission oil and gas wells can be found in the offshore production off the Santa Barbara coast. The decommissioning of Platform Holly, initiated in 2017 as a result of the 2015 Refugio oil spill and subsequent bankruptcy of oil operator Venoco, is currently estimated to cost upwards of $180 million. Similarly, the state now bears responsibility for shutting down Rincon Island, an artificial offshore structure formerly owned by a now-defunct and bankrupt operator. Estimated costs to the state are more than $50 million. This legislation is part of Jackson’s long-standing efforts to address the fiscal and environmental impacts of oil and gas production in California. Her prior legislation includes: · Senate Bill 834, which became law on January 1, 2019, blocks the Trump Administration from expanding federal oil drilling off the California coast by ensuring that new pipelines and other infrastructure needed to support federal oil development cannot be built in California waters. · Senate Bill 44, Coastal Well Cleanup and Remediation Act (2017): Requires the State Lands Commission to monitor and plug orphaned wells when the original oil company that operated the well no longer exists. · Senate Bill 414, Rapid Oil Spill Response Act (2015): Authored in the aftermath of the Refugio Oil Spill to make oil spill response faster, more effective, and environmentally friendly. · Senate Bill 295 (2015): Helps reduce the risk of oil spills from pipelines by requiring the State Fire Marshall to annually inspect all intrastate pipelines and pipeline operators. Jackson represents the 19th Senate District, which includes all of Santa Barbara County and western Ventura County.

Shallow water table, proliferation of private wells will limit injection of a recycled water supply, geologists say.


By Melinda Burns / Contributor

HE GROUND WATER BASINS ON MOST OF THE URBAN SOUTH COAST are drought buffers of last resort, to be conserved for pumping in emergencies. But in Montecito, as many as 1,500 private well owners may have “straws” in the same small basin as the Montecito Water District with its twelve public wells, a team of consultants told the district board this month. The private wells, together with the shallow configuration of the basin, will make it hard for the district to treat wastewater to drinking water standards and inject it into the ground, Tim Thompson, a hydrogeologist with GSI Water Solutions, a Santa Barbara company, told the board. “It’s not the story I was hoping to tell here,” he said. The seven-year drought has ended, but it has left the Montecito Water District thirsting for supplies that don’t rely on rain and reservoirs. Among other initiatives, the district board is poised to raise rates to purchase a $4 million yearly supply of Santa Barbara water for the next 50 years. The district serves 11,000 residents; the city would produce the extra supply at its desalination plant. In pursuing recycled wastewater, the board commissioned the $125,000 GSI study of Montecito’s ground water basin, brushing aside a 2015 geological report that found the basin had “limited recharge potential.” A state grant is expected to help defray half the cost of the GSI report, district officials said. It will be released later this year. Floyd Wicks, the water board president, has promoted the injection of highly treated wastewater into the ground – called “indirect potable reuse” – as a way of employing a recycled supply year-round, including during the wet months. The cost of such a project has been estimated at $31 million. But the district’s hopes for indirect potable reuse in Montecito seemed to evaporate last week, as Thompson presented a series of three-dimensional digital illustrations to the board, showing how earthquakes have thrust up massive chunks of bedrock into Montecito’s ground water basin. “All the basins are challenging around here: it’s unfortunate,” Wicks said. But he found a silver lining to the partial privatization of this critical supply. “The best way to get the most water out is to have many small wells out there: For this community, it seems to work,” Wicks said. “We want people with wells to keep using them. We don’t want this community to look like the Mojave Desert.”

Recycled water that is injected into the ground must typically remain there for at least four months, filtering through sand, before it can legally be drawn out for residential use. In Montecito, given the shallow water table and hundreds of private wells, there are very few places where a recycled supply could travel far enough underground unchecked, Thompson said. He referred to one sub-basin as “a real dog.” Montecito’s underground aquifers are largely composed of ancient debris flow deposits. According to Thompson, “They’re really lousy for holding and transmitting water.” The district could perhaps inject only 140 acre-feet of recycled water per year into Montecito’s basin, Thompson told the board. That would meet only three percent of customer demand, currently at 4,000 acre-feet per year. By contrast, district studies show that a simpler recycled water project could deliver as much as 370 acre-feet of non-potable water per year through “purple pipe” to some of Montecito’s largest water users – the Santa Barbara Cemetery, Biltmore resort, and Birnam Wood and Valley Club golf courses – meeting nine percent of customer demand. That project is estimated to cost up to $16 million. The Montecito Sanitary District plans to build a $3 million plant next year to provide non-potable recycled water to the cemetery, one of the district’s biggest customers. Combing through state permit records, the GSI team was able to pinpoint the location of 900 wells that property owners have applied for in Montecito – but some of those may never have been drilled, or they may be inactive, Thompson shared. At the same time, he said, it’s possible that many existing wells were never properly recorded or permitted – hence, the “guesstimate” of 1,500 in all. There was a well drilling boom in Montecito during the drought, as wealthy property owners sought to elude heavy district penalties for overwatering. But no one knows how much water the private wells are pumping out. Of about 70 wells that GSI was able to find flow rates for, only a handful were very productive, according to Thompson, including two that were drilled at the Valley Club golf course in recent years. Under state law, the district has five years to develop a ground water sustainability plan for Montecito’s basin. In years of normal rain, only about five percent of the district’s water supply comes from district wells. Most of the district’s supply for the next three years is expected to come from Lake Cachuma and Jameson Lake. Melinda Burns is a freelance journalist based in Santa Barbara.

United Way’s 2019 Red Feather Ball Delivers a Revitalized, Record Breaking Night!

Shari Lui, Co-Chair, Amber Ortiz, Co-Chair, Steve Ortiz, President & CEO, Belle Hahn, Co-Chair


HE 2019 RED FEATHER BALL – A RED STATE OF MIND was held on Friday, October 11th at the Four Seasons Coral Casino, and was the most successful in the event’s 23-year history. A sold-out crowd helped raise over $326,000 to support United Way of Santa Barbara County’s national award-winning Fun in the Sun and United for Literacy programs, which make it possible for more than 8,000 disadvantaged children and families in Santa Barbara County access to benefit from life-changing educational programs. The revitalized event connected new friends with longstanding supporters of United Way. The night was a stunner with an outdoor oceanfront living room filled with photo ops, a transformed ballroom, a lively band that had everyone on the dance floor, and an epic red-themed Four Seasons Biltmore dining experience. “Thank you to all who joined and supported the Red Feather Ball this year,” said Steve Ortiz, President and CEO of United Way of Santa Barbara County. “We were blessed with amazing sponsors, event Co-Chairs and committee members, and a fantastic crowd that brought all the enthusiasm Santa Barbara could muster to set the stage for a very successful night,” said Ortiz. Honorary Chair Merry Snow Zegar and her son David Jackson, representing the Zegar Family Foundation, addressed the audience to show support for Fun in the Sun (FITS) and why they believe FITS is in one of the best learning community partnerships in Santa Barbara County. Each summer, FITS offers participants a fun learning environment with a daily emphasis on literacy, including reading and writing; science, technology, engineering, arts and math (STEAM); servicelearning projects; character education; financial literacy; educational field trips; and much more. FITS is ultimately designed to combat summer learning loss, which disproportionately affects students from low-resource neighborhoods. “What makes this program so effective are all of these connections and people, truly devoted to better educated kids. Kids, who, in turn, grow up to make a better future for our exceptional city and county,” said David Jackson during his remarks. United Way of Santa Barbara would like to thank their Red Feather Ball event committee and sponsors, without whom the Red Feather Ball would not be possible: This year’s Event Committee includes Honorary Chair, Merryl Snow Zegar; Chairs Belle Hahn, Shari Liu, and Amber Ortiz; Auction Chair Rosemary Mutton; Sarah Argyropolous; Xorin Balbes ;Baret Boisson; Alice Brophy; Mimi DeGruy; Kendra Feshbach; Marc Gelinas; Erin Gianni; Lily Hahn; Julie Barber Henderson; Chloe K.

We Need a Jobs ‘New Deal’ By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE


HE BEST PICTURE WE HAVE OF CURRENT AND FUTURE JOB TRENDS is the Labor Department’s JOLTS report (Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey). Calculated Risk’s graph shows Job Openings (white line) hasn’t yet dropped below seven million openings in August, though it is falling. This is a given. While there were 5.8 million Hires (black line), there are still 1.2 million job vacancies searching for employees. The chart gives a good picture of the huge labor turnover rate in the $20 trillion U.S. economy. It is also why it is so difficult to predict the next recession, or depression. I maintain we need another New Deal that boosts public spending on health care, education, infrastructure, R&D, and the environment, if we want to continue the longest economic recovery ever. How low must the number of Job Openings fall—maybe one to two million?—for anyone to begin to worry that a lack of available jobs might begin to hurt growth? The white line of the Job Openings tally dipped to some 2.4 million openings in 2009 at the bottom of the Great Recession. The dark gray and light gray columns show Layoff, Discharges and other, and Quits (light gray column), which are basically flat, which means we are at the top of this business cycle. The only hint of a downward trend in job formation is the downward curve in the number of Job Openings (white line). We really must look for any downward trend in retail sales and consumer

spending to tell us the direction of economic growth. Retail sales dropped 0.3 percent last month as households slashed spending on building materials, online purchases, and especially automobiles, the first spending decline since February. What else should we look for? Nobel prize-winning behavioral economist Robert Shiller believes consumer spending is holding up this longest economic upturn since WWII because of the Trump presidency. The fact that he touts himself as a successful businessman creates a general sense of optimism about jobs and the economy. “Trump has for decades touted a glamorous narrative of his life by “surrounding himself with apparently adoring beautiful women and maintaining the appearance of vast influence,” Shiller said in a recent op-ed in Britain’s the Guardian newspaper. “The end of confidence in Trump’s narrative is likely to be associated with a recession,” Shiller warned. So such optimism can be a twoedged sword. While Trump’s affluent lifestyle has been “a resounding

inspiration to many consumers and investors … a severe recession may be his undoing,” according to Shiller. What else could cause such an outcome? The Great Recession that ended in June 2009 could have been a second Great Depression, but for the Obama administration’s passage of the $850 billion American Reinvestment and Recovery Act emergency aid package that gave states, as well as Washington, enough dollars to stop the losses. But, alas, the religiously right wing Tea Party that resisted almost all public spending took over the house in 2010, sharply cutting back further government programs. The focus turned to austerity measures that hurt the Midwest and southern states which were depending on government largesse to support them after the loss of all those manufacturing jobs. The result is the discontent we see today. We need another New Deal that will invest in our future generations, rather than a “glamorous lifestyle,” to sustain this recovery.

American Riviera Bank Reports Loan and Deposit Growth


N A THIRD QUARTER ANNOUNCEMENT, American Riviera Bank reported an unaudited net income of $4,821,000 ($0.96 per share) for the first nine months of 2019. This amount represents a 10% increase in net income from the $4,398,000 ($0.99 per share) for the same reporting period in the prior year. “We continue to invest in the expansion of the Bank and consistently report strong earnings. This is a direct result of our loan and deposit growth, expanded regional presence and the strength of our relationships throughout the Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo Counties,” states Jeff DeVine, President and Chief Executive Officer, in the announcement. The Bank reported an annualized return on average assets of 1.00% and return on average equity of 9.36%. The Bank reported unaudited net income of $1,547,000 ($0.31 per share) for the third quarter ended September 30th, 2019 compared to $1,571,000 ($0.35 per share) for the same quarter last year. Share count has increased primarily due to the $8,500,000 common stock capital raise closed in the quarter ended March 31, 2019. According to the report, ARB continues to experience significant growth, reporting $697 million in total assets as of September 30th, 2019. Total deposits increased 20% from September 30, 2018 reaching $603 million at September 30th, 2019. Non-interest bearing demand deposit accounts increased $41 million, or 25% from the same reporting period last year, reaching $208 million at September 30th, 2019. The Bank reported strong loan growth, with gross loans increasing $59 million, or 12% from September 30, 2018, reaching $548 million at September 30th, 2019, with no other real estate owned and no loans 30 days or more past due. The Bank’s net interest income increased by approximately $2.1 million, or 12% for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, compared to the same reporting period in the prior year. The Bank reported an annualized net interest margin of 4.30% for the nine months ended September 30th, 2019, reflecting only modest compression from the 4.47% reported for the same reporting period last year. As of September 30, 2019, American Riviera Bank has a strong capital position with a Tier 1 Capital Ratio of 12%; well above the regulatory guideline of 8% for well capitalized institutions. The tangible book value per share of American Riviera Bank common stock is $13.74 at September 30th, 2019, a 15% increase from $11.96 at September 30th, 2018. American Riviera Bank is a full-service community bank focused on serving the lending and deposit needs of businesses and consumers on the Central Coast of California.
