SCE Settlement Set in principle for $360 Million

Santa Barbara to Receive $6.8 Million / Montecito WD $8 Million from SCE


By Robert Shutt / VOICE

FIRE AND DEBRIS SETTLEMENT OF $6 MILLION PLUS has been agreed upon for the City of Santa Barbara, with $8 million to the Montecito Water District, by Southern California Edison for damages from the Thomas Fire and Montecito Debris Flow, paired events that claimed the lives of 23 residents in 2017 and 2018. The settlement in principle with SCE resolves claims by public entities only that resulted from the Thomas Fire, Montecito Debris Flow. “The Thomas Fire and Montecito Debris Flow were unprecedented events and, beyond the tragic human loss, our community suffered economic impacts as well,” Santa Barbara mayor, Cathy Murillo, said in a news release. “This money will cover the city’s losses related to public assets and services, offsetting city taxpayer resources.” The city will receive just under $6.8 million to cover lost property, lost revenues, unplanned expenditures, and lost community assets such as environmental and recreational resources and government infrastructure. Additionally, the city is receiving about $24 million set aside for FEMA/OES reimbursement of pending city claims. The Montecito Water District will receive approximately $8 million to cover infrastructure damages and is continuing to defend against claims brought against the district as a result of the debris flow. “The Water District suffered significant infrastructure

damages including the loss of water supply and storage capacity at Jameson Lake,” Montecito Water District Board President Floyd Wicks said. “Accepting this negotiated settlement will eliminate the prospect of protracted and uncertain litigation and will help complete repairs of critical infrastructure damage. This is an important step by SCE to help our community continue its recovery from these devastating tragedies.” Both settlements are part of a larger $360 million settlement that is to be shared by a group of 23 cities, counties, and special districts that filed suits against SCE after the destructive events. $150 million will be allocated to those entities affected by the Thomas Fire and Montecito Debris Flow while the remaining $210 million will be given to those affected by the 2018 Woolsey Fire. In a news release on November 13th, the SCE described the agreement as a compromise that serves to resolve the claims by the 23 entities, but is not an admission of wrongdoing or liability. “We are pleased to reach agreements to resolve the claims brought by local government entities related to the 2017 and 2018 events,” Pedro Pizarro, president and CEO of Edison International, said in the news release. “We look forward to engaging with other parties who have similar interest in good faith settlement efforts. We also will continue to make substantial investments in our system and enhance our operational practices to reduce the risk of wildfires in our service area and safely provide power to homes and businesses.”

The $360 million total does not address claims brought against SCE by residents, individuals, or businesses affected by the fire and debris flow nor does it affect the existing cross-claims that SCE continues to maintain against four of the 23 public entities in connection with the debris flow. The in-person mediation sessions in Los Angeles, where this settlement was reached, were presided over by Judge Jay Gandhi. Those 23 entities that participated in the mediation presented various claims over a period of several days. Ultimately, Gandhi brokered settlements that totaled the aforementioned $360 million amount. SCE and all 23 entities accepted the settlements offered. The local public entities grouped in the settlement agreements related to the Thomas Fire and Montecito Debris Flow include City of Santa Barbara, Montecito Water District, County of Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara County Fire Protection District, Santa Barbara County Flood Control and Water Conservation District, City of Buenaventura, Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection District, Montecito Fire Protection District, County of Ventura, Ventura County Watershed Protection District and the Ventura County Fire Protection District. In relation to the Woolsey Fire, the public entities included in the settlement are the County of Ventura, Ventura County Watershed Protection District, and Ventura County Fire Protection District.

Now let’s work together to get the community onboard.” Services and equipment procured through one805 efforts continue to be put to good use. “The mobile command units made possible through the generous donations by one805 have already proven to be valuable resources on a few different significant events within the County,” noted Santa Barbara County Fire Chief Hartwig. One805 was created in the aftermath of the 2018 Thomas Fire and debris flow to show appreciation for our heroic First Responders and raise much needed funds.

The Fill the Foodbank! Drive-thru Food Drive on Saturday, November 16th, is an opportunity for the community to donate non-perishable food items that are urgently needed to provide healthy groceries to the community this holiday season. Drop items off between 9am to 3pm at Foodbank’s Santa Barbara warehouse at 4554 Hollister Ave. The goal is to collect enough food to fill one large truck, or 40,000 pounds of healthy groceries. Most needed food items: Nut butters, Whole grain cereals and pasta, canned tomatoes and sauce, canned meats, and tuna. The Drive was planned in lieu of the annual South County letter carriers food drive, typically held in November. Turkeys for the Turkey Drive may also be dropped off during that time. www.foodbanksbc.org La Colecta de alimentos ¡Llena el banco de alimentos! que se llevará a cabo el sábado, 16 de noviembre es una oportunidad para que la comunidad done alimentos no perecederos que se necesitan con urgencia para proporcionar alimentos saludables a la comunidad durante estas fiestas. Entrega los artículos entre las 9am y 3pm en el Almacén del Banco de Alimentos de Santa Bárbara ubicado en 4554 Hollister Ave. El objetivo es recolectar suficientes alimentos para llenar un camión grande, o 40,000 libras de alimentos saludables. Artículos alimenticios más necesarios: mantequillas de nueces, cereales y pastas integrales, tomates y salsa enlatados, carnes enlatadas y atún. La colecta se planificó en lugar de la campaña anual de la Colecta de Alimentos de los Carteros del sur del condado, que generalmente se realiza en noviembre. Los pavos para la Colecta de Pavos también se pueden dejar durante ese tiempo. www.foodbanksbc.org

OZART & MAHLER and the multi media Fuel for Strings by Julia Wolfe, the Pulitzer Prize composer, will comprise the center of the Santa Barbara Symphony performances this weekend which will move between Mozart’s joyous Exsultate, Jubilate to Wolfe’s powerful Fuel for Strings accompanied by the Bill Morrison film, to a musical view of heaven through a child’s eyes in Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, creating a timely program for a season of thanksgiving and gratitude. The concerts will also include an up-to-the-minute addition of American soprano, Anya Matanovič for November 16th and 17th concerts at the Granada Theatre. “It is an incredible coincidence that brings Anya to collaborate with the Symphony,” said Santa Barbara Symphony Music and Artistic Director Nir Kabaretti. “Schedules, repertoire, and voice all had to come together as we searched for a replacement soprano to perform with the Symphony this weekend. My attention was captured by Ms. Matanovič for a number of reasons, first, she has the type of virtuosic voice and fast coloratura needed for the Mozart, and also for the boy’s magic horn ‘heavenly life’ for the Mahler... Her schedule aligned with our rehearsals and performances, and, as I discovered recently, Anya just so happens to live in downtown Santa Barbara!” Matanovič was engaged by the Symphony late last week to replace Croatian soprano Lana Kos, who cancelled her engagement due to illness. Matanovič (ma ta’ no vich) made her professional opera debut as Mimì in the Los Angeles commercial engagement of Baz Luhrmann’s Tony Award-winning production of La bohème. Praised for her “thrilling vocal color” and “sweetly winning” presence, she made her international opera debut as Musetta in Franco Zeffirelli’s captivating production of Puccini’s La bohème with the New Israeli Opera and in her debut with the Glimmerglass Festival as Micaëla. Matanovič is a graduate of the Seattle Opera Young Artist Program where American Soprano Anya Matanovič she appeared in their productions of Britten’s The Turn of the Screw as Flora, Mozart’s La Serva Padrona as Serpina, and Falstaff as Nannetta. She has won prizes from Gerda Lissner Foundation, Opera Buffs, Leni Fe Bland, and the Sun Valley Opera, and was Regional Finalist in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. Mozart wrote this motet in appreciation for Roman castrato Venanzio Rauzzini, as thanks for his debut performance of Mozart’s opera Lucio Silla. A delightful work, whose text is religious but not part of the regular liturgy, is a brilliant showpiece that was tailored to Rauzzini’s considerable vocal talents. The opening movement supports Alfred Einstein’s evaluation that this work is a “vocal concerto.” The finale, based on the single word Alleluja, is one of the most familiar movements from Mozart’s sacred pieces, and provides a luminous ending to this wonderful work of the sixteen-year-old Salzburg prodigy, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Julia Wolfe composed Fuel in 2007 as a joint project with filmmaker Bill Morrison. The collaboration was the result of a commission from the European string orchestra Ensemble Resonanz. Wolfe took the request and the result is high-intensity music that explodes to life, taking the audience on a white-hot musical ride throughout its 20 minutes. The music is a perfect correlative to Morrison’s film depicting time-lapse vistas of busy waterfronts which will accompany the Santa Barbara Symphony’s performance of this great contemporary work. Morrison has collaborated with some of the most influential composers and performers of our time, including John Adams, Philip Glass, Kronos Quartet, Steve Reich, and Julia Wolfe. Warm and lyrical, Mahler’s Fourth Symphony combines deliberate simplicity with a wealth of invention. It is also the most modest in length and orchestra size of his ten, and was composed during a time that Mahler was very interested in the folk traditions of Germany as they were set down in an early-19th-century anthology of poems titled Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Youth’s Magic Horn). Mahler’s interest in these simple peasant verses infused a sense of innocence and child-like simplicity into the heart of his Fourth Symphony. The entire mood and structure of this symphony was built to lead to the finale which exudes a beauty, calm, and simplicity that place the performance of this work among the most pacific moments in all of music. Pre-concert talks will continue with musician and music scholar, Saïd Ramón Araїza in Behind the Music. Araїza’s extensive musical background, insights, presentation skills and humor will take you on a journey of discovery about each program, bringing each work and its composer to life in a whole new way. Open to all ticket holders, the talks are approximately 30 minutes and are held 75 minutes before each subscription concert begins at the Granada Theatre (Holiday Pops and New Year’s Eve Pops excluded). For Saturday evening performances, the talk begins at 6:45pm and for Sunday matinee performances, the talk begins at 1:45pm. Behind the Music is sponsored by Marilynn L. Sullivan and The Chalfant Family Trust, and Patricia Gregory for the Baker Foundation.

A new masterpiece for horn trio marks Steven Gross’ 25th season at UCSB


Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE

TEVEN GROSS, PROFESSOR OF HORN and Head of the Wind, Brass and Percussion Areas at UC Santa Barbara, capped his 25th year on the faculty by commissioning a magnificent new Trio for Horn, Violin and Piano (2017) from iconic American composer William Bolcom. With colleagues Philip Ficsor violin and Constantine Finehouse piano (American Double) Gross gave the West Coast premiere of the work last Saturday at the Music Academy of the West. The world premiere took place at King Center Recital Hall, Denver in September 2018 with the same players. American Double is not unknown to Santa Barbarans. Ficsor served on the Westmont College Music Department faculty for some years and is presently based in Denver. Finehouse is currently on the faculty of New England Conservatory Preparatory and Extension Divisions in Boston and has performed here often as Visiting Artist/Faculty at Westmont College. The two gained considerable critical notoriety in 2007 for their Bolcom Project two CD set of the composer’s complete works for violin and piano. It was a natural fit for Gross to invite these experts to join him in preparing and recording the premiere of the new Bolcom Horn Trio. On the program as well, the composer’s Second Sonata for Violin and Piano (1979), a movement from Jirí Havlik’s Concerto for Horn (1976) and a fun opener, Václav Nelhybel’s Scherzo Concertante for Horn and Piano (1966). Czech American composer Václav Nelhybel (1919-1996) is a favorite among brass and wind players for his wonderfully exciting use of folk tunes, catchy rhythms, massive sound structures, and unique modalities. His wide portfolio of works including dozens of masterpieces for concert band are well known, but Gross’s choice of Nelhybel’s Scherzo Concertante for American Double - Philip Ficsor violin, Constantine Finehouse Horn and Piano to open his program piano with Steven Gross French horn at Hahn Hall, immediately established the French horn as the heldentenor of the brass choir, capable of color and mood and texture beyond all other brass instruments. Demonstrating the amazing chops necessary to make the fickle beast behave, Gross made it clear that on a good night, humans can persevere over the instrument. Displaying stunning control, Gross invigorated every jolly Nelhybel riff with delicious bravado, collaborating pianist Constantine Finehouse adding wonderfully detached thus spacious accompaniment. The last moment of the piece, a testament to Gross’s edgy understanding of the sound spectrum, shocked and satisfied. Virtuoso fun. The Molto lento second movement of Havlik’s Concerto for Horn arranged here for piano and horn

and performed in memory of Edna and Roy Gross, provided a pre-intermission meditative pause for the audience and offered Steven Gross the opportunity to pay tribute as well as canvas his mastery of the instrument’s splendid colors, sound illusions, and expressive elasticity. The program’s compelling raison d’être and focus were two works of William Bolcom his amazing, puzzling, powerful, and utterly unique Second Sonata for Violin and Piano performed before intermission and Steven Gross’ new Bolcom commission, the Trio for Horn, Violin and Piano which occupied the second half of the program exclusively; music of masterful construction and lyrical sensibility that will very shortly carve a giant niche for itself in the repertoire. Placed in the middle of the first half of the program and performed by violinist Philip Ficsor from memory, Bolcom’s Second Sonata for Violin and Piano was a joy to see and hear. Both Finehouse and Ficsor have made Bolcom’s art theirs and after years of familiarity, live and recorded performances, thinking and re-thinking the four descriptive movements of the piece, the product heard last Saturday was a revelation; beauty and consciousness personified. As American as jazz and Charles Ives, the sonata’s four movements are encyclopedic histories and world’s in collision. A mass and jumble of contrasting albeit organized, emotions and stylistic temperaments from cool jazz to schizophrenic, the sonata is all about its last movement In Memory of Joe Venuti the first great American jazz violinist. I heard these two artists perform the sonata when it first came into their repertory in 2007. It’s a challenging work to make sense of, but twelve years or more in their blood have given American Double bragging rights; the interpretation heard last Saturday is certainly definitive in every detail. The West Coast premiere of Bolcom’s new Trio for Horn, Violin and Piano was the much anticipated, highlight of the evening and as Steven Gross intended, will certainly join Brahms’ Horn Trio, Op. 40 as a regular masterwork of the repertory for this combination of instruments. Bolcom describes his new work as a musical reflection of the times in which we are living. “So many of us feel desperation from the constant endangering of our country and the world,” Bolcom writes. “I wrote the Trio to express this, hoping listeners might possibly feel less alone.” The first movement Plodding, implacably controlled, is a macabre march, conjuring fantastical images of Roman Legions and ancient empire with its various fanfare-like riffs. The second movement, Headlong, brutal, is a sea of busy transitions and a cornucopia of horn color which conjures a witches’ brew of emotions sublime and damned. Fabulous playing from all three artists. A solo horn opens the third movement, As if far away, misterioso which is vaguely reminiscent of the horn writing of Benjamin Britten, with magical sprinklings of chords in piano before the first violin entry. Later, another solo horn soliloquy is followed by a final section for all three instruments. The fourth movement Very controlled and resolute, begins with a marcato figure in fiddle and piano to lopsided, even grotesque horn passagework, the first scene devolving into chaos before another tableau, this time mawkish and comedic formulates from the remains, leading like a guiding light to a final bravura section for the ensemble. As might be imagined, considering they have just finished recording the work for release, the performance was categorical.

Y FATHER USED TO SAY one has not truly lived until eating a Cuban sandwich. Those who frequent the Cubaneo are getting a taste of immortality! The most popular meal, according to Cadence, a server with an uplifting smile, is the “Cubano,” which the menu states is comprised of “mojo pork roast, Benton’s country ham, Jarlsberg cheese, coriander pickles, mustard aioli, and caramelized onions on pressed roll.” Not a pork eater? No problem! Try the “Pollo Y Ajo”: marinated chicken, cohoyo sauce, and Mama Lil’s goat horn peppers. Executive Chef Julian Martinez seeks to blend the freshest Santa Barbara ingredients with Cuban flavors, and has created an ambiance as relaxing as a Havana summer night, or a Cuban cigar. The term “Cubaneo” illustrates the grace, passion, and pride of Cuban culture: eating the flavorful food in the stimulating company of good friends IS life!

EGETARIAN? Saunter to the back of the building and order The Blistered Shishito Peppers or try some Avo Toast with your can of take-home, Ghost Mountain. The Realty Maze, on-tap, will tantalize, along with 30 others. The Academy of Recreation Science, the newest tasting room of “The Modern Times,” a West Coast Brewery, specializes in crazy names and hazy IPAs. Enjoy the fried mushroom risotto balls on the “largest outdoor patio in Santa Barbara,” as their website boasts. Patrons will surely get an education at the Academy, by General Manager/ Cicerone Justin Crider, who hosts member-only tasting events. “This one sold out in two minutes!” raved Shawn, who referred to the menu of Chili Verde Cheese Fries and Seared Beyond Meat (Burger) as “Vegan Junk Food.” His colleague, Sommelier Anne, poured a generous and tasty “Carnivorous Death Parrot,” as she chirped about the business being employee-owned, environmentally conscious, and decorated with art made with recyclables.

Beach City: Student Housing with Heart and Solar

November 15, 2019

November 1st to December 4th


ITH THE INSTALLATION OF THE LARGEST ARRAY OF SOLAR PANELS IN SANTA BARBARA, Beach City on Cliff Drive is about to become the city’s greenest site – and, officially, a dream come true for Ed St. George. Located at 801, 811, 821 and 831 Cliff Drive, Beach City is a development of furnished, high-end yet affordable bed units. For the past several years, St. George, a prominent local developer, has made it his mission to convert the property into a bedrock of sustainability, for the future and for the direct benefit of its 450 residents – who, save a few remaining longtime elderly tenants, all are students at Santa Barbara City College. The solar panel installation is beginning to roll out and is slated for completion in June. It will be the final piece of a massive, $2 million sustainability project at Beach City that has included: • Completely retrofitting all units with low-flow plumbing fixtures. • Converting all lights to LED. • Installing all new energy-efficient appliances. • Changing all windows and sliding glass doors to dual-glaze. • Installing vinyl, low-heat-emitting roofs that stay cooler in summer and warmer in winter. • Relandscaping the grounds to be more sustainable and, soon, to include a state-ofthe-art coop for chickens that will eat food scraps, supply eggs, and provide natural fertilizer. • Installing a low-flow drip irrigation system that cuts water use by 50 percent.

The solar installation “is the final phase,” St. George said – “finally.” “We’ve been watching the solar industry closely for four years, waiting for the technology to evolve sufficiently,” he said, “and we’ve been working with Brady Electric, and this year is when they told us, ‘This is it.’ These panels are so much more efficient than anything that’s ever come out, with a guaranteed 25-to-30-year life span that will last even longer than that.”

At the Goleta Valley Library 500 North Fairview Avenue, Goleta

The solar project alone has cost $1 million, but when asked about the costs of creating such an elite infrastructure for community college students, St. George deflected with a chuckle and a brief pause. “Yeah,” he said. “It’s a very long-term investment.” About Ed St. George When it comes to Beach City, St. George is not doing this for the money. A highly successful residential developer for 35 years in his native, beloved Santa Barbara, St. George also is the father of two children (ages 14 and 11) who is motivated more these days to invest in the future of his kids, his community, and his planet than in financial rewards. At Beach City, he said, “we take being landlords to these kids very, very, very seriously.” “This is a huge responsibility that we’ve taken on,” said St. George, who visits the complex virtually every day he’s in town. “We train our people about signs of depression, drug use, aggression. … When these kids go to college they’re so vulnerable, they’re so insecure. They’re heavily influenced by older kids. We need to be there for them.” Beach City is a mecca, with its elite accommodations, helpful managers, and warm community vibe that includes regular social events – all involving food, St. George said, laughing. “We have hot dog parties, tacos, pool parties. … It’s seriously such a cool place.” And soon even cooler. “Once we get the solar panels up,” St. George said, “I really will feel like we’ve done something big here.” Meanwhile, he’ll just have to take everyone’s words for it. “I’ll be out to dinner and have current or past tenants come up,” St. George said, “and they’ll say this is the best experience they’ve ever had. … That’s the jackpot. That right there is the triple-7s on the machine.” For more information on Beach City, visit beachcity.com.

Our Lady of Mount Carmel School 75th Anniversary Gala By Angela De Bruyn, Contributor

Lobero Jazz & Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Gala


Beverley Jackson, Special to VOICE

Photos by Beverley Jackson

S I WALKED UP THE STEPS OF THE LOBERO THEATRE, it went through my mind that this is one place in our town that hasn’t changed. It appears the same as the years I served on the Lobero Board in the 1970’s, except we did things in a more glamorous way then. I remember in April 1977 when we had a gala party for the show opening of Salute to Broadway. Mrs. Phillip Terry was chairman and the dinner was held in Scott Hogue’s Epicurean Catering Restaurant. Most of you won’t know that Scott had a restaurant and did lots of catering before his well known floral business. The mink and sable covered crowd, yes we dressed for opening nights then, crammed into this small very popular French restaurant. Everyone seemed to know everyone in those days. The list of attendees included the Nelson Howards, Bill Reppys, Hall Adams, Lincoln Dellars, Jack Mitchells, Ali Maurachers, Ken Snyders, Sen. Al Weingand, and Ron Latimers, to give you a few names you might remember. Following a delicious dinner featuring Beef Bourguignon that Scott made in a gigantic pot he’d brought from France, everyone headed to the Lobero for the show. Last week, I was going to the Lobero Theatre to hear some good gypsy jazz from Dorado Schmitt and The Django Festival All-Stars, but there was a problem. Dorado was stuck at the airport in Paris! The band did carry on, but it wasn’t what I expected. Dorado was a student of the late Django Reinhardt whom I admire tremendously. A Belgian born Romani (Gypsy), minus two fingers, Django Reinhardt is considered one of the greatest musicians of the 20th Century and one of ten greatest guitarists of all time. He was also a composer of fame. He even composed a Mass for the Gypsies. Django had settled in Paris at a pivotal time A treasure ~ Scott Hogue and Mrs. Phillip (Rosalind) in the 1930’s when African-American bands Terry in 1977 had fled there as they had great problems getting work in the United States due to all of the awful segregation problems. So Django worked along with such greats as Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway, and Duke Ellington. And from Django, they came home with what became famous as Gypsy Jazz! Listening to it, I always marvel that he played that guitar so marvelously with eight fingers. In another today, it was at the brand new Rosewood Hotel where Our Lady of Mount Carmel held their 75th anniversary gala. What a young, attractive, and enthusiastic crowd filled the ballroom to capacity! This is a very important event for the church school as they are dependent upon fundraising to make up the difference between tuition and the actual cost of a child’s education. Founded in 1944, this school has become a mainstay in the Montecito community from its humble beginnings with classes first held in the rectory, now they have nine classrooms, a preschool, a library, and a parish hall. The Rosewood event honored alumnus Eustacchio Teresa McWilliams and Father Guadagnini (class of ’56) who came to Santa Barbara from Lawrence Italy as a young boy. Mt. Carmel became a most important part of his life, and he has given back to the church. Among the mob filling the ballroom were Dacia Harwood, Deputy Director of the Santa Barbara Historical Museum; Monsignor Steve, just back from a family visit in Ireland and as always with wonderful funny stories to tell. At my table, centered with a cylinder solidly covered with sparkling rhinestones and filled with white roses were the Flint family, including Gina and Nate Flint, Josh and Nicki Cook, as well as Michael and Margaret Burchiere, Tiffany and Justin Duran, and Chui Faising. I also saw in attendance: Cristina Ricci; Andrea and Shawn Forry; David and Louise Borgatello; Celine & Brian Borgatello; Judy and Mario Borgatello; Kathy Borgatello Koeper; Theresa and Derrick Carlson; and Kerri and Matt Boeddeker. Ron and Andra MacLeod 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.


DAZZLING BLACK TIE EVENT at the beautiful Rosewood Miramar Beach Resort set the stage for Our Lady of Mount Carmel School’s largest fundraising event of the year on Saturday, November 9th, their 75th Anniversary Gala. Also the 36th Annual Auction event for the school, the gathering 75th Anniversary Co-Chairs Natalie Strahl, Angela De Bruyn, and Cristina is of tremendous benefit to Ricci with Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School Principal Tracie Simolon the students, and receives generous support from parents, parishioners, and the MontecitoSanta Barbara community. Such fundraising efforts allow an affordable well-rounded Catholic education for all who seek it. School Principal Tracie Simolon emceed the event, sharing, “It is humbling to be a part of the legacy of Our Lady of Mount Carmel School. While Stephan Biersmith, Doris Biersmith, Honoree Eustacchio Guadagnini, and Tracie Simolon, School Principal many things have changed over the years, in essentials, Mount Carmel is still the closeknit, familycentered school community it has always been.” The evening honored OLMCS alumnus and long-time Montecito resident, A few of the Mt. Carmel School Teachers attending: Erin Kim, Mary Beth Leei, Lisa Llim, Eustacchio Terri Leon. Standing: Larissa Feramisco, Dianne Duva, Co-Chair Natalie Strahl, Gloria Guadagnini Solano, Amy Zoltoski, and Carly Van Eyck (Class of ’56) who came to Santa Barbara from Italy as a small boy. Valuing the education he received from OLMCS, he and his wife Merle chose to send their sons to Mount Carmel as well. Known for his ready smile, compassionate heart, and willingness to serve, Eustacchio has been a valued member of the school and parish community. Also in attendance were many alumni including David and Mario Borgatello, Owen Guitteau (part of the first graduating class in 1947), and alumna and former principal Karen Regan. Principal Simolon also expressed gratitude to Auction Chairs Beverley Jackson and Chui Angela De Bruyn, Cristina Ricci, and Natalie Strahl for their hard work orchestrating a stunning event. She also thanked many school Faising families who contributed their time and talents to the auction. Corporate sponsors and community businesses were recognized in the program and during dinner for their generous donations. Tony Branquinho and his team from Central Coast Auctioneers handled the live auction portion of the evening. Although the final total numbers aren’t in, Mt. Carmel shared that the Adopt-AStudent live ask appeal alone brought in a record-breaking $178,000. The evening concluded with dancing to the sounds of Billy Mandarino. Founded in 1944 by Rev. John Meehan, Our Lady of Mount Carmel School has become a mainstay in the Montecito community over its history. From its humble beginnings, the school has now grown to offering an educational program from preschool to eighth grade. Honoree Eustacchio Guadagnini (class of ‘56); introduced Owen Guitteau, (class of ‘47); with grammar school classmate David Borgatello (class of ‘56) all sharing humorously true stories

S PROMISED, I made it my Numero Uno priority to attend the latest art exhibit at our harbor’s Gallery Extraordinaire, the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, for the opening and artist’s reception of Fishing with Paper and Ink, featuring the amazing prints of Dwight Hwang and Eric Hochberg. The art of printing objects from nature goes back at least to the 15th Century when Europeans printed impressions of plants. In the 17th and 18th Centuries scientists used nature prints in botanical books for an accurate, detailed record of stem, flower, and leaf formations that aided them in species identification. The more complex art of fish printing came along in the 1800’s in Asia. Gyotaku is the Japanese art of fish printing. ‘Gyo’ means fish and ‘taku’ means rubbing. As the story goes, fishermen in Japan invented this art form as a way to record the size of their catch – remember, there were no cameras! Ink was applied directly to the fish and the image was printed on rice paper to memorialize the moment. Talk about a “fish story!” These folks had an actual image to prove that their tale of bagging a huge catch wasn’t an exaggeration. Artist Eric Hochberg maintains that nature printing’s appeal lies in the immediacy of the art. “In nature printing you’re translating the shape and texture and pattern of a life form through your Emily Falke, Adel Hochberg, and Dwight Hwang, artist hands to your head, then back to your hands again and out to the paper.” Hochberg believes that tactile awareness is a great way to learn about the basic elements of any form of nature. Drawing, tracing, or running your fingers over sea life, as in this exhibit, is an expression that the object is real, that it exists, and has a form all its own. Dwight Hwang strives to fine tune the art of fish printing based on his many years of experience in Japan. He uses only the materials and techniques of this age old tradition in creating his art. “How I view the Japanese artistry is the cultural love and admiration for the ‘Perfect Mimi Michaelis, art Imperfection,’ an appreciation and celebration of the part that makes sponsor and Don something wonderfully unique,” he related. Hwang wishes to instill in Barthlemess, SBMM Board President the viewer the undeniable sense of life and motion of these underwater creatures that will inspire a sense of awe in those who look upon them. Emily Falke, the Maritime Museum Curator, and Executive Director Greg Gorga greeted Adel Hochberg (attending on behalf of her father Eric) and Dwight Hwang along with over 100 guests. The exhibit, located on the second level of the museum, communicated the artist’s stated intentions visually. In the exhibition, the clarity of form and the placement of the image on the surface of the rice paper reflected the Japanese traditions innate in this long standing art form. A door definitely opened in my mind to consider our West Coast sea life with a new and different perspective. I encourage you to stop by the Maritime Museum to enjoy this very unusual and spectacular exhibit. As a further follow-up to last weeks National (single handed) Championships in our very own “backyard,” the college single handed competitions took place this last weekend in streamlined Lazer boats. Hoards of well-wishers, parents, and friends sat atop the Yacht Club deck and on boats in the water in front of the harbor to view the race. The weather was perfect, with enough wind to ensure a good race for all participants - and of course the onlookers. I couldn’t resist taking this picture... Photos by Sigrid Toye

FAMILY GATHERS TO COMMEMORATE the 25th edition of Martha Fisher’s celebrated volume of poetry. Absent, however, is Martha herself, who committed suicide soon after the book’s original publication. Haunted by the past and by events they can’t explain, Martha’s family struggles to reconcile the Martha who wrote so brilliantly about the joys of living with one who took her own life. What Martha Did, actress and Blake Thompson and Betty Galindo in rehearsal of playwright Enid Graham’s darkly What Martha Did funny drama about regret, facing the truth, and finding forgiveness, will be presented November 15th to 24th by LAUNCH PAD, the innovative playwright-in-residence laboratory at UC Santa Barbara. “I feel like I’ve hit the jackpot with LAUNCH PAD,” said Graham. “I feel really lucky to be having this experience in a place with so much talent and devotion to the process.” What Martha Did is the 15th preview production to come out of LAUNCH PAD, a program founded by theater professor and artistic director Risa Brainin. The program enables a playwright in residence to see how all the elements — actors included — come together when a play is fully staged and designed. Among those working on What Martha Did are costume designer Ann Bruice, scenic designer Ann Sheffield, lighting designer Michael Klaers, and undergraduate composer Gaurav Mishra. Graham’s “jackpot” got that much better when special guest artist Risa Brainin Julie Fishell, a lecturer in the theater and dance department, joined the cast. Graham and Fishell were colleagues at The Juilliard School in New York. “Having her work on my play is a dream come true,” said Graham. In addition to Fishell, the cast includes Brian Harwell and seven students from the theater and dance department’s BFA Acting Program. “Our preview production has all the talent of the professional world without the pressure,” said Brainin, who is directing the fall production. “It’s exciting for the actors and the audience. By staying in previews, the playwright gets to make changes all the way through. We are thrilled to launch this powerful play.” What Martha Did will be presented at the campus’s Performing Arts Theater. Later in November, in The White Card, a dinner party thrown by Shirley Jo Finney an influential Manhattan couple for an up-and-coming artist sets the stage for a moving and revelatory distillation of racial divisions as experienced in the white spaces of the living room, the art gallery, the theater, and in the imagination itself. The production at UC Santa Barbara marks the first time the play by award-winning writer Claudia Rankine has been performed on a college campus. Directed by Shirley Jo Finney, The White Card opens November 21st and continues through November 24th in the campus’s Studio Theater. “The White Card is an important story of a well-intentioned family trying to heal and confront themselves through art, identity, and politics,” said Finney. “The play is composed of two scenes: the aforementioned dinner party, and one set a year later, in which Virginia and Charles visit Charlotte’s art studio. The White Card stages a conversation that is both informed and derailed by the black/white American drama,” explained Rankine. “The scenes in this one-act play, for all the characters’ disagreements, stalemates, and seeming impasses, explore what happens if one is willing to stay in the room when it is painful to bear the pressure to listen and the obligation to respond.” An award-winning writer, Rankine was elected chancellor of the Academy of American Poets and is a recipient of the Jackson Poetry Prize. She is the author of five collections of poetry, including Nothing in Nature is Private, Citizen: An American Lyric, Don’t Let Me Be Lonely, and The End of the Alphabet. Tickets for The White Card and for What Martha Did range from $13 to $20. Advance purchase and additional information about the productions is available at www.theaterdance.ucsb.edu.

Making Montecito Safer – Part 2 20

Vowing to “keep it in the creeks,� a new group explores ways to permanently reduce the damage from recurrent debris flows. Early next year, he said, RenewSB will begin reaching out to landowners who lost their homes on January 9th, 2018; they may HAT IF THE BOULDERS AND DEBRIS that want to sell all or part of their creek-side properties for debris obliterated whole neighborhoods in Montecito on basins, instead of rebuilding in the path of danger. January 9th, 2018 could have been captured in the “It requires somebody like us to approach those neighbors,� creeks? Skene said. “The county can’t do it.� Partners in Community Renewal, a new nonprofit group in Montecito, called RenewSB for short, is on a mission to accomplish The fire-flood cycle that seemingly impossible task. Drawing on experts here and Geologists say there is a higher risk of debris flows in beyond California, the group has embarked on a $4 million, Montecito through 2023 in the wake of the Thomas Fire, which four-year study of the geology, hydrology, topography and violent laid waste to the mountainside in late 2017 and early 2018. Still, history of debris flows in Montecito. the community is approaching its third rainy season since the fire “This is my home; it’s our home,� said Curtis Skene, the with a greater margin of safety than in January, 2018.

When I got out after 1/9, I kept saying On December 5th, Montecito Fire and the county Office to myself, what’s the opportunity in this big problem?� of Emergency Management will release a new “red zone� map RenewSB will design a masterplan for Montecito’s five main showing the properties at highest risk of damage from debris flows watersheds, encompassing Montecito, Cold Springs, Hot Springs, or debris-laden floods this winter.

In search of longer-term solutions, RenewSB has finished “As they come down, debris flows build up a snout of boulders, a preliminary study of San Ysidro Creek; next, it will focus on logs and trees that can be quite high,� Gurrola said. “There would Montecito Creek, where 17 people died below East Valley Road in last year’s disaster.

During last year’s disaster, a number of bridges in Montecito quickly clogged with debris, effectively pushing battering rams of boulders into residential neighborhoods. Some of these bridges could be elevated or modified with hydraulic engineering to help “keep it in the creeks,� Gurrola said. “It’s well-known these bridges are under-designed for debris flows,� he said. “They were designed for clearwater flows.� Photo by Melinda Burns

Nearby, four people died when the river of mud, boulders and debris jumped the banks of San Ysidro Creek above Randall and East Valley roads.

According to the Montecito Fire Protection District, 80 percent of the chaparral that burned in the Thomas Fire has grown back on the steep slopes above Montecito and Carpinteria. Jonathan “Yonni� Schwartz, coordinator of the Los Padres National Forest Burn Area Emergency Response team, is shown here taking measurements of the vegetation in Cold Springs Canyon in August, at the end of the growing season.

Throughout Montecito, 23 people perished. During a massive debris laden flood in 1969, Skene had witnessed a river of mud rising outside his home as a boy of 12. After his narrow escape in 2018, he said, “I was saying to myself, ‘What the hell was I doing there? I saw this in ’69.’� In the weeks after January 9th last year, Skene came up with the concept of a new debris basin on San Ysidro Creek at Randall and East Valley. He got the county and eight landowners on board, and the $20 million, eight-acre project is on a fast track. It will hold 80,000 to 100,000 cubic yards of debris and will be the secondlargest debris basin on the South Coast. The Santa Monica Creek debris basin above Carpinteria can hold 200,000 cubic yards of debris. The new basin on San Ysidro Creek is expected to be in place by the fall of 2021, paid for in large part by the Federal Emergency Management Agency. Seeing those results, Skene said, Montecitans from other neighborhoods asked him, “‘Would you consider a broader initiative?’� The result, he said, is RenewSB; the group has raised $2 million in pledges from individuals and private foundations to date, money that was targeted but is no longer needed for the Randall debris basin. In all, Skene said, the group will need to raise $2 million more to complete its watershed masterplan. Skene and Kirkelie have been so busy, they only recently got around to demolishing Skene’s wrecked house. It was the last to come down on their block. “We can take this traumatic disaster and turn it into a model for other communities not to overbuild, but to rebuild and renew,� said Kirkelie, a home designer who volunteers her time for RenewSB. “We’re looking for long-term solutions to historical problems.� Melinda Burns is a freelance journalist based in Santa Barbara.

Nonfarm business sector labor productivity decreased 0.3 percent in the third quarter of 2019, the first decline in five years, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported, as output increased 2.1 percent and hours worked increased 2.4 percent…From the third quarter of 2018 to the third quarter of 2019, productivity increased 1.4 percent, reflecting a 2.3-percent increase in output and a 0.9-percent increase in hours worked.


HIS ALMOST ARCANE STATISTIC followed by professional economists is one of two major reasons U.S. economic growth has slowed to a crawl, as seen in the graphs. Individual workers are no longer producing as much per worker as they did through 2000, even with a fully employed economy and the introduction of modern technologies that boost production. Another reason is declining population growth, as American mothers no longer produce enough replacement babies. A main contributor to the falling population growth rate is the decreasing fertility rate. The fertility rate has fallen from 3.7 in the 1960s to 1.9 today, when 2.1 births per mother is the natural replacement rate, leading to a lower increase in the U.S. population (excess of births over deaths). In fact, the national birth rate (12/1,000) still remains higher than the national death rate (8/1,000), which means more people are still being born in the U.S. each year than are passing away. Additionally, the arrival of immigrants with larger families, has kept the U.S. population steadily increasing, albeit slowly. I suggest that lower fertility is just the tip of the melting economic iceberg, because populations also increase with new immigrants. So we shouldn’t be cutting back on immigration quotas as the current administration is doing— to some 700,000 last year from the 1.3 to 1.4 million per year in recent decades. And combined policy missteps—such as

spending less on capital investments that would increase labor productivity and not introducing policies that would enhance birth rates; such as better health care, family leave, more liberal vacation and sick leave policies are a start—as European countries have been doing. This has kept U.S. GDP growth averaging two percent since the Great Recession, but no higher. EU countries have declining birth rates and the same productivity rates, which has knocked down EU GDP growth rates to around one percent. But they also have greater longevity and better healthcare outcomes than the U.S., which is ranked 37th in health outcomes by the World Health Organization. An example, French residents now live an average four years longer than Americans, said Nobel economist Paul Krugman in a recent NYTimes Op-ed. “Why? Universal healthcare and policies that mitigate extreme inequality are the most likely explanations,” Krugman wrote. There is much more that can be done to boost economic growth and income equality, in other words. Fixing schools would boost educational levels, switching to alternative energy sources would inject $trillions into new technologies and bring down pollution costs, fixing our infrastructure would boost productivity immediately by cutting down on commute times and lost work hours, and better enforcement of environmental regulations would decrease healthcare expenses as well as job losses. The list goes on and on. Maybe we do need a Green New Deal to make all this happen? Harlan Green © 2019 Follow Harlan Green on Twitter: https://twitter.com/HarlanGreen.

Antique Japanese Prints Showcased @ SBMNH


INELY DETAILED AND OFTEN COLORFUL, more than 40 Japanese woodblock prints from 18th and 19th centuries, a special loan from artist and collector Bill Logan, are on view through Sunday, January 5th in the SB Museum of Natural History’s John and Peggy Maximus Gallery. The antique prints are by notable 18th and 19th century Japanese artists like Katsushika Hokusai (who created the iconic Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji and The Great Wave off Red Peonies, Japanese woodblock print Kanagawa) and Kawamura by Tanigami Konan Bumpo. Also includeed are a carefully arranged selection of chrysanthemum prints, and a menagerie of spirited animals that seem prepared to leap, swim, fly, and slither off the page. As a complement to the exhibit of antique prints, a special display in the Maximus foyer will showcase work by Bill Logan, whose exuberant ink paintings of owls, cats, and blooms look as if they might have tumbled onto his paper in the manner of early Japanese brushwork. What is Kachō-e?: The uniquely Japanese art form called ukiyo-e, or “pictures of the floating world,” flourished from the 17th to 19th centuries and produced great quantities Owl in Moonlight, Japanese of woodblock prints depicting scenes woodblock print by Imao Keinen of daily life, landscapes, and portraits. Within that broader framework was kachō-e, a genre of nature studies that included birds, flowers, insects, reptiles, www.sbnature.org and other animals.
