Underserved, Yet IndividualsDeserving,

Receive Care at Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics

Santa Barbara

FNeighborhood Clinics is moving forward with new leadership and with their sights ever set on affordable health care for every neighborhood — which is an expensive proposition.

“It is with great pride that I take the helm of one of Santa Barbara’s most beloved non-profits”, stated Mahdi Ashrafian, MD, MBA, CEO of the Santa Barbara Clinics.

“For over 50 years the clinics have delivered high-quality affordable healthcare with compassion, respect, and dignity… this could not be done without the dedicated clinicians and support staff, which I am proud to work beside.”

The Santa Barbara community was built on the shoulders of dedicated individuals that see and act on the personal needs of all people — like pediatrician Anupama Sharma, MD. Dr. Sharma’s home and family life mirror the service she provides in the neighborhoods of Santa Barbara.

There are eight Neighborhood Clinics in the local web of SBNC, all serving deserving and previously underserved individuals. SBNC provides necessary and important information and care, like flu shots.

“Please help the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics thrive so clinicians like Anu Sharma can continue caring for each unique child, adult, and family, whatever their circumstance, in our modern-day courtyard — compassionately, one patient at time… As time goes on, it is my hope that I will get to know each of you, and until then I hope you will continue to support the Neighborhood Clinics,” said Ashrafian.

Dr. Sharma’s Story:

“I say I’m from Louisiana, but my early years were spent in India. In the summers I stayed in my grandparents’ village — a rural village, monkeys and all,” explained Dr. Sharma who is now Pediatrician at the Eastside Clinic.

“My grandfather, affectionately called Baba, was the village doctor. Baba and Amma’s house was a square-shaped bungalow with a large central courtyard. His office was at the front end. The other living spaces — a kitchen on the left side, a prayer hall, and dining space on the right — completed the square. These all opened into the courtyard, and this is where my family and his patients gathered, while the monkeys chattered and looked down from behind an iron railing above.

The patients would come inside our courtyard and visit with my grandmother while they waited for the doctor. She was an active participant in his practice. For this reason, I always saw Baba’s patients as just members of the community, guests in our home‚ not unlike the culture of Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics today.

The conversation was lively... Together, they helped each other troubleshoot their concerns while waiting. Sometimes they left before even seeing Baba, for their problems had been solved.

And…they were poor. They paid what they could, sometimes in potatoes, and no one was turned away. We didn’t have much, and I had always regarded this as normal. Through a child’s eyes, this was my view of how a doctor and their family lived and worked, and I fell in love with every bit of it.”

It wasn’t until adulthood that I realized how rare and foundational those summers were. I was cocooned in a life where there was no boundary between patient and doctor, despite castes, religions, or privilege. Now, oceans away and a lifetime later, as I look around the waiting room in my community clinic, it hits me that it looks a lot like my ancestral home. Here in the shadow of my late grandfather, and at a time when I worry so much is fundamentally wrong with the world, I find solace and purpose in advocating for my little patients and their families.”

Your generosity today makes a world of difference! Together, we can give those in need the most important gift ever- The gift of good health! Become a member of SBNC’s Family of Donors.

Ortega Park Revitalization Project

ITH PROMISES OF AN ALL-WHEEL SKATE PARK, a six-lane swimming pool, and to maintain and expand its gorgeous murals, the Ortega Park Revitalization Project is steadily moving forward. On Saturday, November 12th, the City of Santa Barbara’s Parks & Recreation Department presented an update on several project changes to community members, gathering final ideas and input in preparation for sending out requests for funding and grant opportunities.

ready,’ which means we have to finalize our site plan and start our construction drawings so we can get in line for the funding,” said Parks & Rec Capital Projects Supervisor Justin Van Mullem.

Over a year has passed since the City’s Planning Commission approved the project’s Master Plan, with several changes taking place within that time. Now, Parks & Rec is preparing to work on its construction drawings in anticipation of grant applications.

The current Ortega Park revitalization plan includes an expanded community gathering space by way of a paved plaza, grassy area, and more paved space surrounding a basketball court. The swimming pool now proposes six lanes instead of four, with the addition of starting blocks, water slides, and a wading splash pool. This will also lead to a minor enlargement of the restroom facilities. A multi-sport athletic turf field will allow for soccer games, baseball, and more.

Another change is installing an all-wheel park instead of solely a skate park. This will allow for a more flexible space that can be used by scooters, rollerskaters, skateboarders, and wheelchair users. True to the original Master Plan, parking spaces will be added along Salsipuedes St. and Ortega St., with a drop-off area at the corner.

Twelve park murals, which have emerged as a community-wide point of concern, will remain a key element of the revitalized Ortega Park. Five original murals will be relocated, four will be repainted with a similar theme, and the remaining three will be repainted to match the existing design. Multiple locations for additional, new murals will also be available.

Van Mullem opened the floor up to comments and feedback on the park’s elements from the approximately 20 community members in attendance. He explained that Parks & Rec is working to finalize the plans in anticipation of upcoming funding opportunities.

Community members voiced a desire for the addition of picnic tables, barbecue pits, a ping-pong table, and shade structures, especially by the all-wheel park. The idea of incorporating new art into the all-wheel park itself was also introduced.

Attendees also voiced concerns about neighborhood congestion and ensuring that there would be ample parking spaces available. Additional questions emerged about if the all-wheel park would be large enough to avoid conflicts between different types of users, and the possibility of hosting swim meets at the community pool.

Looking ahead, the Ortega Park Revitalization Project’s current schedule estimates that the project design should be finalized by June 2023, with a construction contract awarded by March 2024. The park is expected to be completed in June 2025, seven years after revitalization efforts officially began.

ShelterBox USA

Honor National Family Caregivers Month

NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL FAMILY CAREGIVERS MONTH, a time to recognize and honor family caregivers everywhere. It’s an opportunity to raise awareness of caregiving issues, educate communities, and increase support for caregivers. Locally, the Caring Together Santa Barbara County network is available to support area caregivers.


Over $200,000 with aa “Evening to Experience ShelterBox”

MORE THAN $200,000 WAS RAISED by the 200 guests who attended Global disaster relief organization ShelterBox USA’s virtual “Evening to Experience ShelterBox” on November 3rd. Similar to ShelterBox USA’s in-person event in September, it provides an opportunity to learn about ShelterBox’s history, aid items, and current responses around the world.

“We are deeply grateful to everyone who attended our event,” said ShelterBox USA President Kerri Murray. “Whether it is through spreading the word about ShelterBox, volunteering their time, or donating, these amazing supporters allow us to reach more families around the world who have lost everything in an instant. There are more than 100 million displaced around the world right now – more than ever before – and our work has never been more important.”

Thursday’s program highlighted how ShelterBox was one of the first humanitarian organizations on the ground in Ukraine, establishing programs to provide 12,000 mattresses to those fleeing to collective centers, send Shelter Kits including tarps, tools, and water filters to those sheltering in damaged homes, and distribute hygiene kits and funds to refugees fleeing Ukraine through Moldova.

This work earned ShelterBox USA the United Nation Association of Santa Barbara’s 2022 “Peace Prize” last month. Local Congressman Salud Carbajal also presented the organization with “Certificate of Special Congressional Recognition” for its work. Guests were invited to make donations online, and an anonymous donor matched gifts up to $100,000. www.ShelterBoxUSA.org

It is estimated that 80 to 85 percent of care provided is by family members. As a caregiver, it is important to prioritize your own health and well-being to best support your loved ones. Make time for yourself, exercise, and join a support group and build your caregiving team to ensure you do not feel alone.

The Caring Together SB County network encourages working caregivers trying to balance employment and caregiving to ask their employer if they have any benefits that fit caregiver needs such as Employee Assistance Programs, paid family or sick leave, flexibleand predictable scheduling.

Family caregivers seeking support can access information at www.CaringTogetherSBC.org or via social media @CaringtogetherSBC.org


, Congressman Salud Carbajal issued this statement:

“I am humbled to have again earned the confidence and support of Central Coast voters in today’s election, and I look forward to serving our communities in the next Congress.

“Our families, our region, and our entire nation are facing fundamental challenges–from rising costs of living and the worsening effects of climate change to the threats against our democracy and fundamental rights.

“While there are still millions of ballots left to be counted, regardless of the outcome I am committed to tackling those challenges and others on behalf of my constituents. As someone who has worked in Democratic, Republican, and divided Congresses in the past, I will be as committed as ever to doing the work that is needed to deliver for them, to create economic opportunity and good-paying jobs, and protect our Central Coast for this and future generations.”

Santa Barbara Unified School District Awarded Three Grants from the California Energy Commission

OVER $1.7 MILLION HAS BEEN AWARDED to the Santa Barbara Unified School District by the California Healthy Air and Plumbing Efficiency Program, or CalSHAPE through three grants.

“We want our district’s buildings to be as up-to-date as possible,” said SBUSD Superintendent Dr. Hilda Maldondo. “We thank our partners at the California Energy Commission for the funds and look forward to beginning this vital work for our campus communities.”

The first grant of $191,825 will upgrade plumbing at select locations, with about $83,000 devoted to remodeling the Santa Barbara Junior High School restrooms with replacing toliets and faucets with low water flow and high efficiency models.

Dos Pueblos Mock Trial Team Wins Third Place at National Competition

REPRESENTING SANTA BARBARA COUNTY among mock trial teams from across the nation, the Dos Pueblos High School Mock Trial team placed third overall in the Empire Mock Trial invitational tournament in Baltimore, Maryland this past September. The team celebrated their accomplishment with Congressman Salud Carbajal in late October.

“I’m so proud that the mock trial team represented us so well at the national level. We are working to be a school district that’s on the move and building successful people in our community. These students are living up to that goal,” said Dr. Hilda Maldonado, Santa Barbara Unified’s Superintendent.

Following three days of intense competition and weeks of practice, the Dos Pueblos team celebrated with a day exploring Washington D.C. Students went to the African American History Museum and toured the Capitol Building, where they met with Rep. Carbajal.

Rep. Carbajal presented the team with Congressional Commendations on October 26th at the Dos Pueblos campus to celebrate their achievement.

The Empire Team included Edo Barel, Amelia Mendro, Jacob Molina, Maxfield Steele, Lo Zhu, Charlotte Choi, Anastasia Li, Sienna Valentine, and Liam Avolio. Hannah Krieshok is the team’s teacher advisor. The team is also coached by attorneys Christine Voss and Lisa Rothstein.

“Being able to argue the law, tour the nation’s capital, and even see a baseball game with some of my closest friends was an unforgettable experience I’ll treasure for the rest of my life,” said senior Edo Barel.

Attorney coach Lisa Rothstein noted how much adversity the team has worked through after competing primarily on Zoom for two full seasons due to the pandemic. “It was extraordinary to allow these hard-working students to travel and compete live at an advanced level. Each one of them exceeded our high expectations. As coaches, we could not be prouder.”

Teacher’s Fund Celebrates Raising $2 Million in 20 Years for Local Schools

IN BETWEEN, no topic remains safe from Oscar Wilde’s signature scathing wit in The Importance of Being Earnest. This month, local audiences can enjoy this masterpiece of tongue-in-cheek critiques in a refreshed, 1960s England setting led by director Katie Laris and realized by the Theatre Group at Santa Barbara City College.

Viewers are left with an intimate theater experience that reflects that what ultimately defines a play is its actors. Performances continue through November 19th at SBCC’s Jurkowitz Theatre.

Wilde’s comedy follows Jack Worthing (Ben Watkins) as he attempts to marry the socialite Gwendolen Fairfax (Sydney Davidson). Gwendolen eagerly accepts Jack’s proposal, only there is a small hitch — she believes Jack’s real name to be Earnest.

After much prying, Jack reveals to his friend, Algernon (Augustus Woolf Muller) that he has led a double life, pretending to have a misbehaving brother named Earnest so he can escape his country home to “deal” with Earnest

whenever he likes. Meanwhile, he gallivants about as Earnest in London, away from the eyes of his ward Cecily (Grace Wilson). Algernon, intrigued by Jack’s description of Cecily, decides to sneak away to Jack’s estate, posing as Earnest himself. Chaos abounds, resulting in a silly series of miscommunications that ends in an improbable but thoroughly entertaining happy ending.

Since The Importance of Being Earnest is a conversationcentered play with dialogue that largely reads as a series of one-liners, delivery proves essential to capturing Wilde’s wry humor. The Theatre Group of SBCC’s cast demonstrates full awareness of this, with each actor embodying their character’s idiosyncrasies in their demeanor as well as tone.

As Jack, Watkins endears himself to the audience as a well-intentioned if not slightly desperate lover, going to comic lengths to prove himself. Muller’s Algernon plays off Watkins’ energy with hilarious indifference, reveling in the prospects of “Bunburying,” a term he coined for using a fictitious friend, Bunbury, to get out of obligations. Yet as he falls deeper in love, he ultimately succumbs to the same lovesick desperation as his friend.

Davidson’s performance as Gwendolen is equal parts proud and rebellious, making her a dynamic force opposite Watkin’s Earnest. Sparks fly when she confronts Cecily, who Wilson portrays with a youthful naiveté that fills the theater with laughter. Lexie Brent rounds out the performance as the formidable Lady Bracknell, Gwendolen’s mother, delivering ridiculous ultimatums with a droll sense of humor.

Given Jurkowitz Theatre’s small size, audience members enjoy an intimate viewing experience that is enhanced by a straightforward set designed by Patricia L. Frank. Consisting of a handful of tables, chairs, and bookcases, Frank’s set transports viewers into the living rooms and patios of 1960s England.

Between acts, supporting cast members reposition the furniture to create different vignettes, dancing to 1960s music from The Beatles and beyond all the while. This soundtrack, combined with impeccable costuming courtesy of Pamela Shaw, further transports viewers without altering Wilde’s original script — emphasizing the applicability of his observations through the ages.

CLOSED IN 2018, the Santa Ynez Valley lost an old favorite friend. The good news is that it reopens on Wednesday the 16th of November. It will be open initially for dinner only, but as the weeks roll by, breakfast and lunch will appear as they once were. In early 2023, the hotel end of the establishment will reopen with 67 rooms. The new owners are the Auberge Resort Collection, so quality amenities can be assured.

The hotel itself was opened in 1866 by Felix Mattei. It was one of the first stagecoach stops in California. Mattei said he wanted his stagecoach stop to be a restaurant first, and a hotel second. And so it is again. Auberge has arranged for seven different food and beverage outlets on the property. When you consider that there are only 67 rooms, that is a pretty amazing proportion per guest. The restaurants and bars are all under the direction of Chef Rhoda Magbitang and beverage director Rasmus Marquart.

The Tavern and hotel are aiming to be a community social spot that is simple and unfussy; a place to repose, like the original Stagecoach stop. Dusty boots are allowed, and even encouraged. Unfussy is the mantra for Chef Rhoda, who is after ingredient driven cooking. The bar is also straightforward with a good list of mixed drinks, and a massive tray of homemade bitters. The wine list is a good mix of local wines and wines from around the world. Sixteen beer taps can be found among the seven food locations. And they even have mini kegs that you can use to fill up and take your beer around the property.

TRUE TO ITS ABSURD TITLE, Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! by Mo Willems inserts young readers into the midst of an argument with a self-righteous pigeon and his madcap efforts to get behind the wheel of a bus. Published in 2003, this Caldecott Medal-winning book has charmed an entire generation of readers, with its titular Pigeon becoming an instantly recognizable character to children and parents nationwide. The book has also become a classroom staple for elementary schools, speaking to its educational value as a story that breaks the fourth wall between readers and characters.

At its core, Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! is a straightforward, silly tale. It begins with a bus driver asking readers to watch after his bus and not to let the Pigeon drive it — hilariously implying that he and the Pigeon have an ongoing stand-off. The remainder of the book focuses on a one-sided conversation with the Pigeon, who begs readers to let him drive the bus. As the Pigeon grows increasingly desperate, he tries all possible methods of persuasion, from trying to evoke pity to bribery. All the while, readers are assumed to continue responding “no” until the bus driver returns... and the Piegon spots a semi-truck he could perhaps drive instead.

Beyond being a fun read, however, Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! introduces ample opportunities for conversations about the art of storytelling. By directly addressing readers, Willems actively makes them a part of the story and places them in a position of authority over the Pigeon. His childish antics reinforce this dynamic, making the reader behave similarly to a parent or teacher confronted with an insistent student.

Students also explore the fundamentals of what makes a convincing argument, as they confront the Pigeon’s appeals to readers’ logic and emotions, as well as his temper-driven outbursts. Ultimately, readers are left with a clever, original picturebook that remains just as entertaining regardless of how many times they read it.

A Fairytale for the Modern Age


Guillermo del Toro has proven his innovative storytelling and world-building skills in his retelling of Pinocchio. Due to hit Netflix in early December, Pinocchio has been del Toro’s passion project for 16 years, with its breathtaking stop-motion animation taking 1,000 days to shoot. The result is a magnum opus on both an artistic and thematic level, as viewers encounter a tale of acceptance and love.

Reimagined to take place in Mussolini’s Italy, del Toro’s Pinocchio is a far cry from the happy-go-lucky tale Disney popularized. The film opens with Geppetto (voiced by David Bradley) suffering the loss of his young son, Carlo, amidst the horrors of World War I. Years of grief pass before Geppetto drunkenly decides one night to carve a wooden boy to fill the emptiness he feels.

A wood sprite (Tilda Swinton) takes pity on Geppetto, breathing life into Pinocchio (Gregory Mann) and charging Sebastian J. Cricket (Ewan McGregor) to act as his moral guide. Yet this task proves difficult, as Pinocchio acts on his impulses regardless of the consequences.

From this point on, the film consistently subverts viewers’ expectations by masterfully weaving new concepts with familiar elements of the original Pinocchio story. Similar to del Toro’s other dark fairytale, Pan’s Labyrinth, much of Pinocchio hinges on the fact that it takes place within a fascist regime. Accordingly, Pinocchio’s existence is viewed as a threat to social conformity, introducing a sense of political anxiety that will undoubtedly resonate with viewers.

“I wanted to do a movie about a world where everybody behaves like a puppet,

except the puppet,” explained del Toro at the Santa Barbara Film Festival’s Cinema Society’s screening on November 13th.

“I wanted to make a movie where disobedience is a virtue,” he added. “Where Pinocchio doesn’t have to change to be loved, he can be loved exactly for who he is.”

The film’s premise allows for nuanced conversations on father-son relationships, with Geppetto’s struggle to accept Pinocchio running parallel to the relationship between a local fascist official and his own son, who is desperately trying to please him.

Death also emerges as a main theme, as Pinocchio realizes he is caught in a limbo of being alive, but not fully human. Rather than dwell on death as a dark subject, however, del Toro approaches this concept with profound hope, emphasizing the preciousness of our time spent with loved ones.

“I think it is a beautiful instrument to talk about life,” said del Toro, adding with a laugh, “If you’re a kid, you’re going to need to have a chat about death at some point. It’s either, you know, the hamster dies, or you watch my movie.”

Above all, Pinocchio is a stunning work of art. Running almost two hours long, every second is the work of 24 photographs taken of the clay puppets’ carefully adjusted movements. The prevalence of bright colors, along with upbeat songs and a moving score composed by Alexandre Desplat, maintains the impression that Pinocchio is a fairytale. Yet other elements provide the eldritch atmosphere viewers have come to associate with del Toro’s worldbuilding, such as the wood sprite boasting eye-covered wings one might find on an Old Testament angel.

Ultimately, Pinocchio is not only a testament to the wonders of stop-motion animation, but the potential for fairytales to spark meaningful conversations and personal reflection.

SB Loves a Race...

ON THE SUBJECT OF RACES... Did you notice last weekend’s excitement on the water off the Santa Barbara harbor? As the runners in the Half Marathon race on Cabrillo Boulevard faded into history, a new race appeared on the other side of the breakwater, the Pacific Coast Collegiate Championship sailboat race hosted by UCSB’s sailing team. The views from the breakwater were absolutely spectacular last Sunday on a breezy, beautiful autumn day. And the sun drenched deck of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club was the perfect place for a bird’s eye view of the yearly regatta.

The UC Santa Barbara Sailing Team partnered with the Yacht Club to present collegiate sailors from universities up and down California and Canada’s west coast as they competed in the Pacific Coast Championship. A few of the university teams that participated included the University of Southern California, Stanford University, UCLA, UCB, UCSD (only a sample of UC competing teams), University of Victoria, University of Washington, Cal State University Channel Islands, Cal Poly University SLO, University of Hawaii... Need I go on? This was a huge competition with a valued tradition!

In August of 1936 Yachting Magazine headlined that the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate Association was formally organized at a June 15th meeting held at the San Diego Yacht Club to form what is now known as the Pacific Coast Collegiate Sailing Conference (PCCSC). The very next day, June 16,1936, the first organized regatta of the Pacific Coast Intercollegiate Sailing Association was hosted in San Diego. Five schools entered the event, University of Arizona, California Institute of Technology, University of California at Los Angeles, and University of Southern California –members of SDYC provided the boats. The yearly competition continued until 1942 when World War II intervened, and resumed again in 1946 and continues to this day. The PCCSC is one of six national Collegiate Conferences within the United States, streching from the East Coast through the middle of the country. There are currently 25 teams in the Pacific Coast Collegiate Conference and over the November 12th-13th weekend 19 of them made the trek to Santa Barbara to participate in the competition. Looking out on the water on Sunday, the F-J two handed small sailboats competing against the background of the Channel Islands on a deep blue ocean was a sight to behold. PCCSC Conference Commissioner and SBYC Race Director Brad Schaupeter noted, “The weekend’s regatta required a good deal of coordination by our team. The 19 boats competing in three divisions were in 24 separate races, the timing of each race is equal to the amount of participating boats. Lots of stats!” From what I know of organizing and scoring yacht races, the preparation and coordination involved to pull off this kind of event simply blows my mind!

“Our entire sailing community is excited about the opportunity to host these kinds of events,” concluded Schaupeter. “It’s not every day that we have national championships in our own backyard, and it’s awesome to share what a special sailing venue Santa Barbara is with student sailors from up and down the West Coast and Canada.” He also noted that few people are aware that UCSB is one of the only two programs west of the Mississippi that compete at the most elite level of college sailing and one of very few

programs with this type of competitive success.

Races such as this one provide an opportunity to showcase not only UCSB and its Sailing Team as excellent competitors but also serve to highlight the many activities that take place within the greater community. Never let it be said that the shameless bragging for which this column is well known will ever cease, because things are never dull down at our Santa Barbara harbor!

Cruise Ship Season Ends, Community to Offer Feedback

HIKES, the Fed should slow down its rate increases, say at least three Federal Reserve Governors. That is good news as we try to assess the likelihood of another recession.

It’s good news because there are already signs of a possible soft landing in 2023, if the Fed will take their foot off the economic brakes until there is more certainty of its tightening efforts down the road.

Reuters quotes the Chicago Fed’s President Charles Evans (San Francisco and Richmond Fed Presidents also advocate slowing) saying it is time for the Federal Reserve to shift to smaller interest rate hikes to avoid tightening monetary policy more than needed and slow the pace further once risks become more “two-sided,” (i.e., a possible recession).

“From here on out, I don’t think it’s front-loading anymore, I think it’s looking for the right level of restrictiveness,” Evans told Reuters in an interview, referring to the U.S. central bank’s string of supersized rate hikes.

If the Fed did nothing more this year, we could have a ‘soft landing’ since growth is already slowing in both the manufacturing and service sectors of our economy.

New orders for factory goods are down, for instance, and holding at a lower level of activity. Orders for manufactured goods rose 0.3 percent in September, the Commerce Department said last Thursday, and orders have risen eleven months of the past year. The factory sector led the economy’s recovery from the pandemic because of huge pent-up demand for things like automobiles and other durable goods after the pandemic.

The ISM’s manufacturing index is now close to break even. The S&P global U.S. manufacturing PMI inched up to 50.4 in its “final” reading in October from the “flash” reading of 49.9. This is down from a reading of 52 in September.

“The U.S. manufacturing sector continues to expand,” said ISM Chair Timothy Fiore, “but at the lowest rate since the coronavirus pandemic recovery began. With panelists reporting softening new order rates over the previous five months, the October index reading reflects companies’ preparing for potential future lower demand.”

The Institute for Supply Management (ISM) serviced sector (non-manufacturing) Index that measures conditions at companies such as retailers and restaurants fell to 54.4 percent in October and touched the lowest level since the U.S. lockdowns in 2020, pointing to a slowing U.S. economy. A number

above 50 signals expansion; but settling in a more normal range typical of a slower growing economy.

Granted this is before the Fed’s latest rate hikes take hold that could reduce the demand for goods and services even further, consumer borrowing that is reported by the Fed is a better indicator of consumer wherewithal, since they wouldn’t be shopping as much as they have been if they fear an imminent recession.

Consumer credit has been declining slowly, but again it is back to more normal prepandemic levels. Revolving credit, like credit cards, rose 8.7 percent in September, less than half of the 18.1 percent gain in the prior month. Nonrevolving credit, typically auto and student loans, rose 5.7 percent, up from a 4.5 percent growth rate in the prior month. This category of credit is much less volatile.

The growing danger is to continue to tighten while there are still shortages of food and energy supplies, while demand is already shrinking in the rest of the world.

China’s economic woes are one example. Reuters reports “China’s exports and imports unexpectedly contracted in October, the first simultaneous slump since May 2020, as a perfect storm of COVID curbs at home and global recession risks dented demand and further darkened the outlook for a struggling economy”

The San Francisco Fed has also flagged the danger with its own published research that suggests we have already tightened too much. U.S.

monetary policy is tighter than the Federal Reserve’s policy rate suggests, according to research published Monday by the San Francisco Fed, with financial conditions by September 2022 reflecting the equivalent of a 5.25 percent policy rate, which it the top boundary of Chairman Powell’s own prediction.

“Accounting for the broader stance of policy and comparing the proxy rate to simple rules suggests U.S. monetary policy

tightened sooner and more sharply than has been generally recognized,” the Letter said.

Given what could be a brutal economic winter for much of the world and demand maybe reaching parity with supply, so that risks become more “twosided” in Chicago Fed President Charles Evans words, we may now see a more benevolent Federal Reserve and enjoy a soft landing.

Women Waging Peace

Inspiring the Fight for a Nuclear-Free Future

HOPE AND CALLS FOR A FUTURE WITHOUT NUCLEAR WEAPONS were met with resounding applause as Santa Barbara community members joined the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation for its first annual Women Waging Peace Luncheon on November 10th.

Hosted at the Hilton Santa Barbara, the afternoon celebrated two inspiring women actively fighting for a nuclearfree planet: Cynthia Lazaroff, founder of Women Transforming our Nuclear Legacy, and State Senator Monique Limón.

“Both Cynthia and Senator Limón are role models for women’s leadership,” said Dr. Ivana N. Hughes, NAPF President. “Both of them embody one of NAPF’s favorite mottos: that peace is more than the absence of war.”

Now in its 40th year, NAPF works toward the abolishment of nuclear weapons through international advocacy and community events such as Sadako Peace Day. After opening remarks by Event Chair Jill Dexter, Dr. Hughes welcomed luncheon attendees by emphasizing the importance of NAPF’s mission in light of the war in Ukraine, and the organization’s goals.

“A world free of nuclear weapons is no longer just a dream,” shared Dr. Hughes. “It is in fact, part of the international law through the United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of

Nuclear Weapons. This historic treaty is now fully in force, and it has the support of 124 countries. It has been ratified by 68 of them. Our goal...is for this treaty to become universal and for all remaining countries to join it.”

Cynthia Lazaroff then shared her experiences during the 2018 Hawaii missile scare. A documentary filmmaker and expert in U.S. and Russia relations, Lazaroff is also the founder of Women Transforming our Nuclear Legacy, an initiative that supports women’s leadership in the field of nuclear disarmament.

Lazaroff captivated guests as she recounted the 38 minutes in which she believed that she and the rest of Hawaii were about to be hit by a nuclear attack. Terrified, she fled to a neighbor’s meditation cave to seek shelter, calling her daughter living in Los Angeles to say goodbye.

She asked everyone to reflect on who they would call if Santa Barbara suddenly faced a nuclear attack, emphasizing what was at stake while nuclear weapons still exist. She ended on a hopeful note, expressing that there is still time to enact weapons bans.

“Abolishing nuclear weapons is about love,” explained Lazaroff. “It’s about saving all we love and hold dear. So let’s write that story together.”

Senator Limón took the podium to discuss her decision to introduce Assembly Joint Resolution 33 when she served as a State Assemblymember. Passed in 2018, this resolution staunchly declares California’s opposition to nuclear weapons and calls upon federal leaders to embrace the United Nation’s prohibition treaty.

Senator Limón spoke of the catastrophic climate damage, famines, and refugee crises that would emerge from even a small-scale nuclear war. She highlighted that while the worldwide inventory of nuclear weapons has decreased since the Cold War, their global threat to our well-being persists. She encouraged all to continue fighting for nuclear abolition, thanking attendees for their unwavering support.

“We need your continued advocacy, not just in our state, but across the country and through the globe,” said Senator Limón. “It is becoming very

Guests’ eyes turned to the future generation of women leaders as 2022 Youth Poet Laureate Ambassador Kundai Chikowero read her poem Dilemma, written especially for the luncheon. With thoughtful verse, Chikowero bridged reflections on past atrocities and the importance of the current moment.

Former State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson closed out the luncheon with a lively call to action and request for donations. As she praised NAPF and its honorees’ invaluable work, applause filled the plaza as activists of all ages united in supporting a nuclear-free future.


clear that nuclear war is not a concern of the past. It is a concern of today, and we all need to work towards a nuclear-weapon-free future.”

HILE KNOWN PRIMARILY AS AN ELEGANT INDOOR FOLIAGE PLANT, in our Mediterranean climate the Weeping Fig matures into a stately, medium-sized, broadleaf evergreen landscape tree. Undoubtedly, many of the Weeping Figs around town were first grown inside as house plantsoutgrew their pots and spaces - and were subsequently planted outside.

In our area, the Weeping Fig normally reaches 25- to 30-feet in height and carries a rounded dense crown that spreads to 30feet in width, providing generous shade. Under ideal conditions, it can grow even larger, so be careful where you plant it!

The limbs and branches grow upright but arch downwards at the ends, creating a graceful weeping effect. While it is normally a single-trunked tree, it frequently has lower branches that develop into multiple trunks; subsequently, these can self-graft into a single trunk. Young trees can also be pruned to have a single trunk.

Perhaps the Weeping Fig’s most distinguishing characteristic is its shiny green leaves. These are ovate-elliptical shaped (4-inches long and 1½-inches wide) and appear alternately on the twigs. Each leaf has a pronounced end pointed (acuminate) tip that is often bent backward and twisted, making it easy to identify this tree from other Ficus species.

The Weeping Fig is monoecious, meaning each tree bears both female flowers and male flowers. The flowers develop and remain entirely sheltered on the inside of a fleshy, hollow, receptacle called a syconium. On all fig trees, this type of flower-bearing structure (inflorescence) is also the fruit. The encased flowers are pollinated by tiny wasps that enter the syconium’s tiny hole at its terminal end. Once the flowers are

pollinated, the resulting spherical fruits (1/3- to ½-inch in diameter) usually occur in pairs, are green when young, and turn orange-red when ripe. The fig fruit is technically edible; however, it is usually only eaten by birds.

Its bark is light-gray and relatively smooth when young; this surface changes to raised horizontal lenticels as the tree matures. At any age, the bark is quite striking in contrast to the glossy foliage and accentuates the often deeply contoured and sculptural trunk and limbs.

The Weeping Fig is native to a wide area extending from the tropical areas of eastern India, Southeast Asia, Indonesia, and northern Australia. In all areas where it is endemic, it is highly valued and appreciated for its dense shade, for firewood, and for many medicinal uses. In Thailand, it is so revered for its beauty that it has been designated the official tree of Bangkok.

In addition to the common name of Weeping Fig, this lovely tree has many other common names, including Benjamin Fig, Java Fig, Weeping Chinese Banyan, Weeping Laurel, Java Laurel, and SmallLeaved Rubber Tree.

Weeping Fig is in the Moraceae or Mulberry plant family, which includes all figs trees, including the species, Ficus carica, that bears the delicious edible figs found in markets around the world. Weeping Fig’s botanical name is Ficus benjamina. The genus, Ficus, is the Latin name for the edible fig. The specific epithet, benjamina, is derived from the Sanskrit word, “banij,” meaning “banyan tree” (which is also in the fig family).

Mature Weeping Figs are often confused with Indian Laurel Figs (Ficus microcarpa, var. nitida), since they have a similar crown shape and identical bark and leaf color; the Weeping Fig’s twisted pointed leaf tips distinguish it from its cousin.

Weeping Fig, although a tropical tree, is easy to grow in our Central Coast area and, once established, appears to be surprisingly drought tolerant. It does appreciate some deep watering in the dry season and during extended droughts. It is not cold hardy, so it does need to be placed in a frost-free or protected location; otherwise, when

temperatures dip below 30 degrees F, it can experience significant leaf and twig damage and dieback. It prefers well-drained, moist, loamy soil and full sun to partial shade.

There are numerous cultivars of Weeping Fig that have been developed in the nursery trade for use as indoor foliage plants, because of this tree’s ability to photosynthesize at low light levels. Such cultivars have been selected for their variations in leaf color and/or for white or yellow variegation. Most of these lovely cultivars can also be used in our community as home garden trees, either planted in the ground or potted in containers. The cultivar ‘Starlight’ has earned the coveted Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Garden Merit. Miniature cultivars, such as ‘Too Little’, are especially popular with bonsai enthusiasts.

Weeping Fig is not susceptible to serious insect or disease pests but is prone to some bothersome (but not lifethreatening) insects, like Cuban laurel thrips (which curl the leaves) and stem scale (which sucks the sap and deposits a sticky substance that creates sooty mold).

Fair Warning: As with most species in the genus Ficus, Weeping Fig will develop aggressive surface roots, which can be destructive to nearby structures and to hardscapes, particularly sidewalks. Always plant it in a location that provides sufficient space to accommodate its roots at maturity.

When planted in smaller spaces, it is advisable to prune it periodically to keep it in scale with the planting area and to limit root expansion.

The Weeping Fig can be planted and then regularly pruned, for use as a screen or hedge. However, it is best suited for planting in city parks and on large estates, where it will be given the space needed for its full beauty and grandeur to be appreciated.

Weeping Figs can be seen in many locations about town: in Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden; east of the Los Banos Pool on West Cabrillo Boulevard (7 trees); in the 200 Block of West Mason Street (7 trees); at the southeast corner of West Padre and Castillo Streets (4 trees); in the first block of Bath Street (3 trees); at 622 Bath Street (2 trees); at 402 De La Vina Street; and, at 21 S. Alisos Street.

Tree-of-the-Month articles are sponsored by Santa Barbara Beautiful, whose mission includes increasing public awareness and appreciation of Santa Barbara’s many outstanding trees and, in a long-time partnership with the City Parks & Recreation Department, the funding and planting of trees along the City’s streets.

Those who wish to honor a special someone can do so with an attractive commemorative marker that will be installed at the base of an existing street tree in the City of Santa Barbara. Because Santa Barbara Beautiful has participated in the planting to date of over 13,000 street trees, there are plenty of trees from which to choose!
