Santa Barbara Police Partners with Data Giant LexisNexis – Unveils ‘Near-Real-Time’ Online Crime Map


URIOUS ABOUT WHY THERE WERE A GROUP OF POLICE CARS IN YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD ON A CERTAIN DAY? You’re now just one click away from a potential answer. Santa Barbara City residents now have a new interactive online tool to keep up on police calls for service and crime statistics within the City. The Santa Barbara Police Department has added LexisNexis Community Crime Map to its website. Within the Police Department’s home page, click the purple “Neighborhood Crime Activity” box in the left column of the page. Community Crime Map helps the public get a better idea of the crime activity in their area so they can make more informed decisions about how to stay safe. The map analyzes crime data, allows residents to hear about crimes in their area by signing up for email alerts, and provides a way to submit an anonymous tip - in onehundred-ten different languages. The tool can even drill down by neighborhood zip code. It transparently provides the identical data that Police use to better understand trends and make resource allocations. The Santa Barbara Police Department keeps detailed records about each incident that occurs within the jurisdiction. LexisNexis’s regional data sharing Community Crime Map takes this data, cleans it to protect victim privacy, and displays it to the public so citizens can be aware of the events that occur in their area. The crime map automatically syncs with the Police Department’s records system in near-real time. Key stakeholders, business owners, and community leaders can access this information to heighten awareness levels of what’s happening around the City, enhance existing security efforts, and keep people and property safe.

A Multiuse Path on Las Positas and Modoc Roads is Beginning to Take Shape


HE CITY’S LAS POSITAS MODOC ROAD BICYCLE AND PEDESTRIAN PATH PROJECT, which aims to construct a 2.6 mile long separated pathway for cyclists and pedestrians, is well underway. The path should improve the area’s safety, accessibility, and opportunities to walk and bike, though for now, pedestrians and drivers alike should take care as construction continues along Modoc Road between Calle De Los Amigos and Las Positas Road. “Traffic control is implemented to ensure worker, pedestrian, and cyclist safety,” reads a statement from the City of Santa Barbara. “Drivers are advised to be alert and proceed cautiously within the Modoc corridor and through the Las Positas and Modoc Road intersection during construction.” Beginning November 19th, contractor C.A. Rasmussen began installing about 3,600 linear feet of curb and gutter. Additional progress will be made by Friday, November 20th, as C.A. Rasmussen will finish pouring the first retaining wall segment between Calle De Los Amigos and the private entrance to the Vista Del Monte Retirement Community. To date, the median island on the south leg of the Modoc and Las Positas intersection has been reconstructed. C.A. Rasmussen is also almost finished with the water services relocation and storm drain installation on the east side of Las Positas Road between Modoc Road and Meadows Lane. Looking ahead, between November 23rd and December 3rd curb, gutter, and sidewalk will also be installed along this portion of Las Positas.

Virgil Elings Donates $4 Million for New Dos Pueblos High School Facilities


N A DISPLAY OF GENEROSITY AND COMMUNITY SUPPORT, local philanthropist Virgil Elings has donated $4 million to Dos Pueblos High School toward the construction of new facilities benefitting the school’s Engineering Academy, among other Career Technical Education programs. “The Engineering Academy offers a worldclass education and I want people to know that,” said Elings at the project’s October 19th groundbreaking ceremony. “Besides, this whole thing is dirt cheap if you calculate how many students are going to be impacted by the new opportunities offered in these buildings — thousands — and to just save a few lives by getting people started on a different track than they’re on is worth it.” The project consists of constructing two new buildings covering 30,000 square feet, and will cost a total of $16 million. Originally, DPHS was going to just replace portable classrooms, having received $5 million in Measure I bond money for that purpose. However, through state grants and philanthropic support, DPHS raised the remaining $11 million needed to plan and begin its ultimate goal. When completed, these new buildings will feature specialized educational spaces that will increase resources and opportunities available to DPHS students. “The contributions of Virgil Elings to facilities projects for the DPHS community have been tremendous,” said DPHS Principal Bill Woodard. “His generous support of this new project gives our school the opportunity to go from merely replacing dilapidated, portable classrooms from the 1970s to creating a hub for Career Technical Education programs. These new facilities will enable our students to learn, create, and collaborate on real-world projects for generations to come.” Telacu Construction Management has been awarded the project’s contract, and construction is projected to be finished in fall 2022.

One Climate Initiative Promotes Engagement and Awareness for County Responses to Climate Change


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

HE MESSAGE “ONE COUNTY. ONE FUTURE. ONE CLIMATE,” greets each visitor on the County of Santa Barbara’s One Climate Initiative website. Launched this month, the Initiative offers a one-stop, online resource that reviews the county’s ongoing efforts to address climate change. Through its promotion, the county hopes to encourage community awareness and engage as many voices as possible in our local response to climate change. “We recognize that each planning process can be quite technical, and we really want to take a different approach to make sure that we’re — on the county’s side — sharing resources and leveraging each others’ work, and also reaching a different and more broad and diverse audience when it comes to this work,” explained Garrett Wong, Climate Program Manager for the County of Santa Barbara. The One Climate Initiative covers four county projects: the 2030 Climate Action Plan, the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Plan, the Active Transportation Plan, and Central Coast Community Energy service. While 3CE service will begin next year, Wong expressed that the other projects will be long-term planning efforts. “Once the County Board of Supervisors adopts these plans, they ultimately become programs and policies and projects that we’ll later see materialize in different ways,” said Wong. “They’re pretty big in scope and nature, so we want to make sure these get enough of a high level profile and visibility in the community and people understand the importance of them.”

The 2030 Climate Action Plan aims to reduce carbon emissions by 50 percent in the county’s unincorporated areas by 2030. This plan will cover municipal operations and the community sector, and will encompass building related energy, vehicles and fuel type, waste and waste treatment, natural gas systems, and agricultural and natural lands. The second project, the Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment and Adaptation Plan, will update the county’s safety elements. Currently, the county’s Comprehensive Plan’s safety element largely lists environmental concerns that are not driven by climate change. This project will change this, and the new safety element will in turn influence land use and development policies. The county will also enact the Adaptation Plan following the assessment, which will examine local infrastructure and what actions the county should take to protect our community from climate change. The Active Transportation Plan will focus on infrastructure and programs that would make it safer for community members to walk and bike. While the county is still selecting a consultant to aid the process, the plan will ultimately produce a list of projects for the county to review and implement. The final program in the One Climate Initiative is the beginning of Central Coast Energy (3CE) service. Made up of local governments, including representatives from Santa Barbara County, 3CE will provide our community with more electricity from cleaner and renewable sources. Power line maintenance, distribution, and billing will still be performed by PG&E and Southern California Edison.

Customers in the north unincorporated county areas, Guadalupe, Santa Maria, and Solvang will be automatically enrolled for 3CE service this January. Utility bills will not increase as a result of this change, however individuals do have the option to withdraw or increase their involvement with 3CE service. All One Climate Initiative information is consolidated on its website, https://sbco. mysocialpinpoint.com/oneclimatehome. Visitors can learn more about projects, sign up for newsletters, and participate in online workshops. Ongoing community engagement is taking place through the website’s interactive map, where individuals can share location-specific climate change concerns. Community members can also join the

Equity Advisory Committee, which aims to represent and engage marginalized populations who would be disproportionately affected by climate change. “We’re trying to engage with the Equity Advisory Committee to help inform our plan and our assessment to ensure policies, programs, and projects are done equitably, and that we’re doing more to ensure that people who have been historically marginalized are now centered and lifted up,” said Wong. The first One Climate Initiative online workshops will take place on December 9th.

Keeping Our Cool

To limit global warming, the global food system must be reimagined OSSIL FUEL BURNING ACCOUNTS FOR THE MAJORITY OF GLOBAL GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS, and to the world’s credit, several countries are working to reduce their use and the heat-trapping emissions that ensue. The goal is to keep global temperatures under a 1.5° to 2°C increase above preindustrial levels — the upper limits of the Paris Climate Agreement. If we stopped burning all fossil fuels this minute, would that be enough to keep a lid on global warming? According to UC Santa Barbara ecology professor David Tilman, petroleum energy sources are only part of the picture. In a paper published in the journal Science, Tilman and colleagues predict that even in the absence of fossil fuels, cumulative greenhouse gas emissions could still cause global temperatures to exceed climate change targets in just a few decades. The source? Our food system. “Global food demand and the greenhouse gases associated with it are on a trajectory to push the world past the one-anda-half degree goal, and make it hard to stay under the two degree limit,” said Tilman, who holds a dual appointment at UCSB’s Bren School of Environmental Science & Management and at the University of Minnesota. The world’s growing population as well as its diet are driving food production practices that generate and release massive and increasing David Tilman amounts of carbon dioxide, methane, and other greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. According to the paper, left unchecked, agricultural emissions alone could exceed the 1.5°C limit by about 2050. These findings are especially concerning given that we haven’t stopped using fossil fuels, Tilman said. And with a 1°C average increase in global temperature since 1880, we’ve got only a slim margin before global warming results in widespread sea level rise, ocean acidification, biodiversity loss, and other effects that will change life as we know it.

“All it would take for us to exceed the two degree warming limit is for food emissions to remain on their path and one additional year of current fossil fuel emissions,” Tilman said. “And I guarantee you, we’re not going to stop fossil fuel emissions in a year.” Reducing the emissions from food production, “will likely be essential” to keeping the planet livable in its current state, according to the scientists.

Seeds of Solutions “It’s well known that agriculture releases about 30 percent of all greenhouse gases,” Tilman said. Major sources include deforestation and land clearing, fertilizer overuse, and gassy livestock, all of which are increasing as the global population increases. In “highyield” countries such as the U.S., which have the benefit of large scale modern agriculture, intensive animal farming and heavy-handed fertilizer use are major contributors of greenhouse gases. Meanwhile, in “low yield” countries such as those in sub-Saharan Africa, population growth and increasing affluence are driving demand for more food, and toward more “urban” diets that are richer in meat and meat products, Tilman explained. “Their demand for food is going up, but the farmers don’t have the resources to have high yields, so they just clear more and more land,” he said. And yet, it isn’t as though we can just stop producing food, which is perhaps the main reason why agricultural emissions have received less attention than fossil fuels as a target for reduction, according to the researchers. “You can’t look at agriculture as if we can somehow get rid of it,” said Tilman, whose research focuses on the environmental impacts of agriculture, as well as the links between diet, environment, and health. “We need it; it’s essential for society.” But, according to the paper’s authors, global warming does not have to be an unavoidable impact of feeding the the world. Through early and widespread adoption of several feasible food system strategies, it is possible to limit emissions from agriculture in a way that keeps us from exceeding the 2°C limit by the end of the century while feeding a growing population. The most effective, according to the paper, is a switch toward more plant-rich diets, which aren’t just healthier overall, but also reduce the demand for beef and other ruminant meats. That, in turn, reduces the pressure to clear for grazing land or produce the grains and grasses (more farming, more fertilizer) required to feed them. “We’re not saying these diets have to be vegetarian or vegan,” Tilman said. Widespread reduction of red meat consumption to once a week and having protein come from other sources such as chicken or fish, while increasing fruits and vegetables, in conjunction with decreasing fossil fuel use, could help keep the planet livably cool in the long run. Another strategy: ease up on fertilizer. “Many countries have high yields because from 1960 until now they have been using more and more fertilizer,” he said. “But recent research has shown that almost all of these countries are actually using much more than they need to attain the yield they have.” A drop of roughly 30 percent in fertilizer use would not only save the farmer money for the same yield, it prevents the release of nitrous oxide that occurs when excess fertilizer goes unused. “About 40 percent of all future climate warming from agriculture may come from nitrous oxide from fertilizer,” Tilman added. “So adding the right amount of fertilizer has a large benefit for climate change and would save farmers money.” Other strategies the researchers explored included adjusting global per capita calorie consumption to healthy levels; improving yields to help meet demand where it may reduce the pressure to clear more land; and reducing food waste by half. “The nice thing is that we can do each of these things sort of halfway and still solve the problem,” Tilman said. The sooner we employ these strategies, the closer we can get to keeping the Earth cool and avoiding the wholesale changes we would have to adopt if we wait too much longer, he added. “I’m optimistic,” he said. “We have a viable path for achieving global environmental sustainability and better lives for all of us.” Research in this paper was conducted also by Michael A. Clark (lead author) and John Lynch at University of Oxford; Nina G.G. Domingo, Kimberly Colgan, Sumil Thakrar, and Jason D. Hill at University of Minnesota; and Inês L.

4,000 Pounds of Rainbow Trout Added to Cachuma Lake


ON’T BE SURPRISED IF YOU SPY far more rainbow trout than usual swimming in Lake Cachuma this week. In coincidence with Veterans Day, the lake received 4,000 additional pounds of rainbow trout for local fishing enjoyment. Currently, Cachuma Lake is open and operating under COVID-19 health guidelines, which are posted throughout the park. “Everything an angler needs is available for rent or purchase at the Cachuma Lake Marina and Boat Rentals, which also offers pontoons, outboards, and kayak rentals, as well as one-day and annual fishing licenses,” reads a statement from the County of Santa Barbara’s Parks Division. “Fishing from shore in the recreation area or from a boat is open year-round with a valid fishing license.” This is the second rainbow trout delivery made to Lake Cachuma this fall. Earlier this year, Santa Barbara County Parks, in cooperation with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, received a Private Stocking Permit for triploid rainbow trout. This permit allows for up to 16,000 pounds of rainbow trout to be delivered for the 2020-2021 year. The first delivery of this grant took place in late October, and also consisted of 4,000 pounds of trout.

Boats must be inspected and tagged by Cachuma Lake staff at least 30 days before an individual visits. Same-day launching for kayaks, simple boats, and canoes are permitted at Cachuma Lake. More information on boating vessel requirements and launching protocol can be found at: www.countyofsb.org/parks/cachumaboating.sbc. To learn more about fishing, hours of operation, and more, visit www.countyofsb.org/parks/cachumafishing.sbc.

Paseo Nuevo Celebrates 30th Anniversary with Unity Shoppe Fundraiser


ITH ITS CHARMING BRICK PATHWAYS AND RANGE OF STORES, Paseo Nuevo beats at the heart of downtown Santa Barbara. For 30 years, it has been a beloved shopping destination for both locals and tourists alike. Now, as Paseo Nuevo celebrates its anniversary, it continues to serve our community by hosting its 30 Days of Giving campaign to benefit Unity Shoppe. “Our role as stewards of the downtown commerce core extends beyond the retail and restaurant square footage we manage; it extends to the community in which we all live,” said Mary Lynn Harms Romo, Paseo Nuevo’s Senior Marketing Director. “When we considered how to celebrate our 30th anniversary we quickly knew that supporting a local nonprofit would be the best way for us to honor our history and this community. For years we have supported the Unity Shoppe’s annual telethon and this year we felt a month-long campaign leading up to the telethon would be a great way to add more support.” Between now and December 11th, individuals can participate

in the 30 Days of Giving campaign whenever they shop or dine at Paseo Nuevo. Participants only have to text “UNITY” to 89881 to share a photo of their receipt from the stores or restaurants they visited. Upon doing so, Paseo Nuevo will donate a percentage of the purchase to Unity Shoppe. The funds raised by this campaign will then be added to Paseo Nuevo’s annual $3,000 donation to Unity Shoppe. Each participant will also be entered into a drawing for a $500 shopping spree at Paseo Nuevo. “If we’ve learned anything these past few years, it’s how much farther a spirit of collaboration can take our Community when we’re confronted by a monumental task like a natural disaster, health crisis or economic downturn,” said Tom Reed, Unity Shoppe’s Executive Director. “We are so grateful to Paseo Nuevo for continuing to partner with Unity Shoppe and make a difference for so many.” Paseo Nuevo will present its final donation during the Unity Shoppe telethon, which will air on KEYT December 12th from 4pm to 8pm.

I believe that Santa Barbara is in the forefront at this moment. Just as the earthquake provided the impetus to re-imagine Santa Barbara, the result of that effort has been used as the inspiration for other communities. So too the current effort to re-imagine will inspire other communities.” Local art historian Nancy Clare Caponi weighed in,

Because State Street has an interactive relationship with climate, a series of water management features were proposed, culminating with an expansion of water filtration concepts. A major commonality in many teams was found in a desire to see expanded public art programs. Margie Yahyavi, Chair of the City’s Arts Advisory Committee supported the effort, noting, “We support art in the public realm and the design process that includes the broad community in the exploration of ideas to revitalize our downtown. I am supportive of the Community Vision Charrette and look forward to working together to achieve a vibrant space for all.” Some of the ideas can be seen in 19 design boards that are on display in the windows of two vacant storefronts - at 827 and 901 State Street, near Canon Perdido, put together by an exhibit committee. The work will be shown through the end of the year. This ambitious effort has already received a 2020 Golden Leaf Award from Santa Barbara Beautiful.

ARL STORZ IMAGING OF GOLETA CELEBRATED ITS 30TH ANNIVERSARY on November 12th. Since 1990, KSI has been a pillar of California’s Central Coast technology industry and is one of the area’s largest employers, with almost 400 team members. With the pandemic wielding its influence this year, 2020 hasn’t been easy for the company that designs and manufactures cameras and camera control units used for patient airway management in the battle against COVID-19. “It has been 30 years since KARL STORZ acquired Medical Concepts Inc. creating KARL STORZ Imaging. We have kept our assembly lines in operation at some personal risk to all of us (despite huge measures to reduce the potential transmission of the virus) and have provided an uninterrupted flow of product to health care professionals globally,” recalled Miles Hartfeld, President and General Manager of Karl Storz. “As Team KSI, we overcame the challenges of 2020. Through adversity, we brought ourselves together even though physically distant. If we can do all of this, we can overcome the next inevitable challenges…. and they will come, our future IS Nancy Henderson, Executive Admin Assistant; and Miles Hartfeld, President and General Manager, Karl Storz bright.” KSI is a subsidiary of KARL STORZ SE & Co. KG, a family-owned company based in Germany that employs more than 8,000 people in 44 countries. KARL STORZ is a world leader in endoscopes used for medical diagnostics and minimally invasive surgery, which can achieve shorter hospital stays and recovery times, with reduced pain and improved outcomes. As one of the largest privately held medical device companies in the world, KARL STORZ has achieved global preeminence in production and sales of endoscopes and medical imaging devices. The KARL STORZ Imaging 30th anniversary celebration was held virtually with global participants recognizing the historic company milestone with employees, the community, and special guests. In 1990, KARL STORZ purchased the Goleta startup, Medical Concepts, Inc., creating KARL STORZ Imaging. KSI put down more permanent roots in 2014 by purchasing its current building at 1 South Los Carneros Rd. with an eye on expansion. This 100,000-plus square foot facility houses the internationally renowned product development group, integrated with high-tech manufacturing and service. KSI has made significant advances in medicine while contributing to the economic growth of the Central Coast of California. This success was recognized in 2015 with the dedication of its street as Karl Storz Marc Amling, Karl Storz Head of Product Drive.

Preparing for Winter...


By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

TROLLING ALONG THE HARBOR WALKWAY TOWARD THE BREAKWATER, I noticed children climbing the recently created sand berm in front of the Yacht Club for a fun slide back down. Extending to the end of Leadbetter Beach, the berm seemed a far better option than sledding down a snowy slope on a freezing winter morning. Why not have some good fun on the beach sliding down a sand hill on a sunny summer-like day? Sand berms are constructed along the shoreline to protect our coastal areas in anticipation of large waves associated with the winter storms. As opposed to seawalls, breakwaters, or other “hard” coastal structures (discouraged by the California Coastal Commission), sand berms are considered “soft” structures and acceptable solutions in dealing with coastal erosion. Watching those big machines creating sand mountains along the shoreline was a lot of fun and certainly less effort than building my own (somewhat pathetic) sandcastle! The Waterfront Department has created two separate sand berms: at Leadbetter Beach and at the mouth of Mission Creek. The Leadbetter berm provides protection for the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, its parking lot, and storage facilities. The berm also protects the Harbor Marine Works boatyard and the Waterfront Maintenance yard. Occasional erosion and the overtopping of the sand berm has resulted in significant flooding of Harbor Way and the harbor commercial area. The Mission Creek berm, beginning on the east side of Stearns Wharf, extends along the south side of the Mission Creek lagoon. Flood waters from Mission Creek have historically flowed underneath Stearns Wharf causing the piling to become unstable that could result in a partial collapse of the pier. The Mission Creek berm is essential for the wharf’s stability during periods of high tides and flooding. Needless to say, berms are essential during the winter months … but especially this last week with the arrival of the King

Tide on November 16th. King Tides happen when the sun, moon, and Earth are in alignment and the moon is closest to the Earth, creating a stronger gravitational pull. Although both the sun and moon influence our tides, the moon’s gravitational pull is about twice as strong than that of the sun. Just as we experience a change of seasons because of our yearly trip around our star, we experience different tidal forces for essentially the same reasons. In the case of the King Tides, this whole process happens on ‘steroids,’ as was obvious on November 16th when the entire sand spit usually found at the end of the breakwater was completely underwater! As we know, the California coast is a dance of dynamic forces: waves, wind, rivers, rain, tectonic activity, and human development and intrusion. King Tides provide a great opportunity to get a glimpse of what our coastline might look like as sea-levels rise. The water levels reached by the recent King Tide could become the ‘new normal’ in the very near future. With the phenomenon of global warming, much like our weather, the tides will also undergo equivalent changes. Just the up and down temperatures of the last few weeks makes us aware of the unusual weather patterns now beginning to emerge. I’ve noticed over the years that during the winter months, depending on the weather, the sand berms need to be reconstructed numerous times. Fortunately, the Waterfront Department is always on alert monitoring the berms along with the rise and fall of the tides during this uncertain period. Thanks to everyone over there for keeping watch over the waterfront community! With Santa Barbara County’s recent return to the Purple Zone for public safety, let’s do the same by wearing a mask and observing social distancing to keep The sandspit at the California’s COVID-19 cases in breakwater was under water check. during the recent King Tide.

La Casa de la Raza Designated a Historic Landmark


A CASA DE LA RAZA, located at 601 E. Montecito St., now joins the ranks of official Santa Barbara landmarks. On November 10th, the Santa Barbara City Council unanimously designated La Casa de la Raza as a historic landmark, pointing to its architecture and history of representing the Latinx community in Santa Barbara. The building itself was constructed in 1931 in the Spanish Colonial Revival style. Its octagonal tower particularly distinguishes it from the other buildings in Santa Barbara’s Eastside. In 1970, the building began to house the communitybased, social justice organization La Casa de la Raza. Within the building, murals created by local Chicano artist Manuel Unzueta were installed. “These artistic pieces—along with Teatro de Esperanza and many musical groups from that era who played concerts at La

Casa—demonstrate that La Casa de la Raza was a space where Chicana/o culture and identity was affirmed and valued,” reads the City’s Historic Landmark Designation Report. Beginning in the 1980s, La Casa de la Raza began offering resources such as childcare, computer skills classes, career services, English-language classes, educational workshops, and more. Events such as weddings, fundraisers, and quinceañeras have also been consistently held at this location. In recent years, La Casa de la Raza has provided emergency services following the 2018 Thomas Fire and flood, distributed supplies and food to families in need during the COVID-19 pandemic, and worked alongside and supported Black Lives Matter activists this summer.

Art From Scrap Celebrates Anniversary with $30 for 30th Birthday Fundraiser


OU WOULD BE HARD-PRESSED to find a Santa Barbara resident who doesn’t know about Art From Scrap. From its field trips, gallery shows, to providing creative reuse materials, the Art From Scrap Creative ReUse Store has worked to make a difference for local environmental and education efforts for 30 years. To celebrate this milestone and raise funds for Art From Scrap’s future, the store has launched its $30 for 30th Birthday Fundraiser. “Every day is an adventure of fun, creativity, and inspiration at Art From Scrap,” said Tara Patrick, Art From Scrap Creative ReUse Store manager. “Our patrons are the best! Across all demographics, Art From Scrap is a place where we can all agree on the adage — one person’s trash is another person’s treasure. It’s an honor to carry on the powerful mission and message of Art From Scrap’s founders.” Art From Scrap was founded in 1990 by a group of parents who wanted to increase art supplies’ availability in local schools. Since then, it has promoted reuse practices and worked to educate students and adults alike about the role waste reduction plays in saving our environment. In addition to its reused items, the store also features low cost art supplies, Art Workshops, and a Gallery that supports local artists. Due to the pandemic, the

Creative ReUse Store location has been closed since March. It is hoped that the $30 for 30th Birthday campaign will help fund the ventilation and air filtration system needed in order to safely reopen the store. Community members wishing to participate in the $30 for 30th Birthday campaign can donate directly to Art From Scrap via its website, and are encouraged to spread the word among their family and friends. The fundraiser will also feature an educational social media campaign on the benefits of upcycling and reuse. Interested community members can even submit a short video showing their support for Art From Scrap to use in the online campaign. “We want to hear from you — the artists, teachers, families, and shoppers who have kept Art From Scrap thriving these past 30 years,” said Jill Cloutier, Explore Ecology’s PR Director. Until the Creative ReUse Store is opened, individuals can purchase materials through the Art From Scrap online store at https://exploreecology.org/ecology-shop. Art From Scrap has also continued to offer virtual art programming for children and adults. For more information, visit https://exploreecology.org/art-from-scrap.

Habitat for Humanity Makes Critical Home Repairs for Elderly Residents Carpinteria Resident Lori Ann Graham Among Those Served


OR THE PAST EIGHT MONTHS, local and national health officials have urged individuals to stay home as much as possible for their own health and safety. However, for many local seniors with houses in need of critical repairs, staying inside has proven to be a challenge. To address this issue, as well as make it possible for individuals to age safely in their homes, Habitat for Humanity of Southern Santa Barbara County is making home repairs for elderly homeowners. Recently, Habitat Santa Barbara has served Carpinteria senior Lori Ann Graham. Graham’s home was in need of several repairs that would not only contribute to its preservation, but its long-term safety. Habitat Santa Barbara stepped up to the task, repairing a large hole that had Lori Ann Graham opened in her bathroom floor as well

as addressing painting, fencing, and flooring needs. Graham has expressed her daily gratitude to Habitat Santa Barbara for their generosity and service. “I walk outside early every morning with my first cup of coffee, and to this day I still can’t believe this happened,” shared Graham. “Never does a day go by that the kindness and generosity of Habitat go unappreciated.” Habitat Santa Barbara firmly believes that a safe and healthy home is essential, and has made it their mission to assist locals in gaining stability for the past 20 years. To date, Habitat Santa Barbara has placed 22 families in new homes, and repaired more than 150 residences from Goleta and Carpinteria. This dedication has not faltered amidst the pandemic, as now more than ever maintaining one’s home is crucial to their wellbeing. “Home preservation maintains the existing stock of affordable housing in Santa Barbara, where the cost of living is nearly double the national average,” said Jessica Wishan, CEO of Habitat Santa Barbara. “Behind the façade of prosperity, many www.sbhabitat.org struggle to afford basic needs.”

Honoring the Legacy of Toby Bradley


By Staci Caplan, SBAOR President

HIS WEEK THE REAL ESTATE COMMUNITY LOST A GREAT LEADER AND FRIEND when Toby Bradley passed away on November 15th. Toby served as President of our local Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS in 1992, and then went on to become the second female Treasurer for the California Association of REALTORS (CAR) in 2000 and 2001. When she served as CAR President in 2003, her mission was to create cultural diversity and inclusivity within the organization. Most notably, Toby was the founder of CAR’s Housing Affordability Fund (HAF), a legacy which has grown and helped many into home ownership. Every year since its inception, REALTORS have donated to the fund, and this year the CAR Board of Directors contributed an additional $1,000,000 to further the HAF mission. Toby served extensively as a CAR and NAR Director, serving on many committees over the years, most notably on Taxation and Government Finance. I remember being inspired by her as a newer CAR Director when observing Toby speak so passionately and eloquently at the microphone. She was so persuasive and influenced many positive outcomes. In fact, according to Bob Hart, our local SBAOR CEO, Toby was a proponent of tax portability long before the recent passage of Toby Bradley Proposition 19 on this year’s ballot. According to Diana Bull, another SBAOR and CAR past President/ Treasurer, “Toby was highly respected at the National Association of REALTORS for her keen knowledge of real estate tax and finance legislation. We often debated strongly with each other on many issues, and then went out to dinner to laugh and share champagne!” Toby became a REALTOR in 1979 and created many friendships with clients and colleagues alike. Her Broker, Renee Grubb of Village Properties states, “She was so smart and such an asset to our real estate profession. If you did not know Toby, you really missed out. She was such a caring person.” Toby was highly respected throughout our nation by many REALTORS and will be missed.

Santa Barbara County Assigned to the Purple Tier


ALIFORNIA RECENTLY REACHED THE MILESTONE OF 1 MILLION COVID-19 CASES STATEWIDE. With transmission and hospitalizations on the rise throughout the state and concern for acute care hospital capacity, the state has made changes to the Blueprint for a Safer Economy to curb disease transmissions and reduce case rates. As a result, Santa Barbara County is among 28 of the 58 counties throughout the state who will be moved back to Tier 1 (Purple/Widespread). Health Officer Order 2020–12.14 has been issued to reflect sector changes and took effect on Tuesday, November 17th at 11:59pm. Governor Newsom announced the following changes to the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy for this week’s tier assignment: • Case rate and test positivity data will be from a four day lag instead of a seven day lag, to give better visibility into recent changes. • Counties will be moved to a more restrictive tier with one week of worsening metrics. Previously, it took two weeks for a county to be moved. • Counties may be moved by more than one tier if metrics determine this is needed. • The health equity metric was not used for this week’s tier assignment from the State as there has been no forward movement for any county.

This change from the red to purple tier means that many businesses will be required to move to outdoor-only operations including restaurants, gym and fitness centers, places of worship, family entertainment centers, wineries, movie theatres, museums, zoos, aquariums, and cardrooms. Bars, breweries, and distilleries will be able to remain open as long as they are able to operate outside and with food with any purchase of alcohol. For all sector changes, view the latest Health Officer Order at https://tinyurl.com/y6ya9mbt. “We are not only seeing cases increase in our county, but across the state and nation,” shared Dr. Henning Ansorg,” Santa Barbara County Health Officer. “Mixing that occurs indoors with people from different homes is the ideal environment for the virus to spread quickly.” With movement to the most restrictive tier, schools that haven’t reopened will have to remain closed until the county moves back into the red tier or, for grades TK – 6, until they receive a waiver from the state to reopen for in-person learning with modifications. “I cannot reiterate enough the seriousness of the current situation. We are at a critical point where every person must wear a face covering, avoid any gatherings with persons outside their home, and stay home if you are ill,” said Dr. Ansorg. “Holidays must look different this year if we want to avoid overburdening our health care system and further impacts to our economy.”

El Condado de Santa Barbara Asignado al Nivel Púrpura


ALIFORNIA ALCANZÓ RECIENTEMENTE EL HITO DE 1 MILLÓN DE CASOS DE COVID19 EN TODO EL ESTADO. Con la transmisión y las hospitalizaciones en aumento en todo el estado y la preocupación por la capacidad hospitalaria de cuidados agudos, el estado ha realizado cambios en el Plan para una economía más segura para frenar la transmisión de enfermedades y reducir las tasas de casos. Como resultado, el condado de Santa Bárbara se encuentra entre los 28 de los 58 condados en todo el estado que volverán al Nivel 1 (Púrpura / Generalizado). La Orden del Oficial de Salud 2020-12.14 se emitió para reflejar los cambios y entraró en vigencia el martes, 17 de noviembre a las 11:59pm. El gobernador Newsom anunció los siguientes cambios en el Plan estatal para una economía más segura para la asignación de niveles de esta semana: • La tasa de casos y los datos de positividad de las pruebas serán de un retraso de 4 días en lugar de un retraso de 7 días, para brindar una mejor visibilidad de los cambios recientes. • Los condados se moverán a un nivel más restrictivo con una semana de empeoramiento de las métricas. Anteriormente, el traslado de un condado demoraba dos semanas. • Los condados pueden moverse en más de un nivel si las métricas determinan que es necesario. • La métrica de equidad en salud no se usó para la asignación de niveles de esta semana por parte del Estado, ya que no ha habido ningún avance para ningún condado.

El Condado de Santa Barbara reporta 91 nuevos casos de COVID-19 hoy (11/18/20). Hay 301 casos aún infecciosos, con 17 hospitalizados (4 de los cuales están en la UCI). El recuento de casos confirmados es 10,702.

Este cambio del nivel rojo al morado significa que muchas empresas deberán mudarse a operaciones solo al aire libre, incluyendo los restaurantes, gimnasios y centros de fitness, iglesias y templos, centros de entretenimiento familiar, bodegas, cines, museos, zoológicos, acuarios y salas de juegos. Los bares, cervecerías y destilerías podrán

permanecer abiertos mientras puedan operar al aire libre y con comida con cualquier compra de alcohol. Para conocer todos los cambios del sector, consulta la última Orden del Oficial de Salud (en inglés) en https://tinyurl.com/ y6ya9mbt. “No solo estamos viendo un aumento de casos en nuestro condado, sino en todo el estado y la nación,” comentó el Dr. Henning Ansorg, Oficial de Salud del Condado de Santa Bárbara. “La mezcla que ocurre en el interior con personas de diferentes hogares es el lugar ideal para que el virus se propague rápidamente.” Con el movimiento al nivel más restrictivo, las escuelas que no hayan reabierto deberán permanecer cerradas hasta que el condado vuelva al nivel rojo o, para los grados TK-6, hasta que reciban una exención del estado para reabrir en persona con modificaciones. “No puedo reiterar lo suficiente la gravedad de la situación actual. Estamos en un punto crítico en el que todas las personas deben usar cubrebocas, evitar reuniones con personas fuera de su hogar y quedarse en casa si está enfermo,” dijo el Dr. Ansorg. “Los días festivos deben verse diferentes este año si queremos evitar sobrecargar nuestro sistema de atención médica.” Para obtener más información sobre la pandemia de COVID19 y orientación local, visita www.publichealthsbc.org o llame al 2-1-1.

Feathered Friends: Portraits of Santa Barbara Birds by Emil Morhardt By Kerry Methner, PhD / VOICE


PENDING MORE TIME OUT OF DOORS – or perhaps just looking out of windows – birds have come more into focus as active community members in the last months of pandemic social life. Artist Emil Morhardt has been tracking this phenomena and is offering Portraits of Santa Barbara Birds through the end of November at Gallery Los Olivos. In all, 28 paintings of birds, all previously unexhibited and created since April 2020, of twelve local species are included. Visitors can discover Marbled Godwits from Hendry’s Beach; Great Blue Herons from Lake Cachuma; Great Egrets from Morro Bay State Park; Common Ravens from the Carrizo Plain; Acorn Woodpeckers; Common Crows; a California Scrubjay and a Roadrunner from Mission Canyon; and a Great Horned Owl, Peregrine Falcon, and Barn Owl from Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History. “When I moved to Santa Barbara a decade ago, I realized the approachable birds on the beach were a great resource, so I started Emil Morhardt there, shared Morhardt of his choice of subject, adding there are, “More of them than us, and their societies are quite complex. If we watch them closely, there is much to learn about the different ways social interactions can proceed.” The works in the gallery are really bird portraits, with many of the paintings focused on each individual bird’s head. “My paintings are about understanding what individual birds are doing and how different individuals of the same species vary from one another in appearance and behavior over the year and throughout their lifetimes,” Morhardt explained. “It’s easy to think of ‘birds of a feather’ as being nearly identical, but when you start watching them carefully you quickly see it isn’t so.” The exhibition includes large-scale paintings with a dimension up to four feet and dramatic dark-background paintings of Great Blue Herons and a Great Egret. Some of the paintings are of individuals and some include groupings of birds. “Watching, photographing, and painting birds increases one’s sensitivity to the natural world, and for me, intensifies the need to protect it,” Morhardt noted. That doesn’t just include shorebirds. He is also delighted when he sights others. “I love to see the occasional roadrunner in my yard in the hills above Santa Barbara.” Acorn Woodpecker with Admirers by Emil Morhardt

Gallery Los Olivos is located at 2920 Grand Ave in Los Olivos. Reach them at 805-688-7517 or visit www.galleryLosOlivos.com. Find more of Morhardt’s work at www.emorhardt.com.

Sharing An Art Cake With The 100 Years Young Wayne Thiebaud

ET’S START TODAY WITH SOMETHING INSPIRING AND POSITIVE – an ArtNet interview with Wayne Thiebaud, the famous California artist, who is celebrating his 100th birthday. Yes, Thiebaud is alive and well, and he not only allows us to savor his fabulous cakes, but also gives us advice on how to stay healthy: “enjoy it when you have it, but don’t have too much.” When asked if he “remembers another time Cake Rows (1962) by Wayne Thiebaud (during his long life) when so much seemed to be going wrong in the world?” Thiebaud responded, “I experienced the Depression...but it was somewhat different. People were not divided. They seemed to be willing to help each other...It wasn’t so anxious and strident, as it seemingly is today.” All of the above reminds me of Marie Antoinette’s famously naughty statement: “Let them eat cake.” Today, 200 years later, looking at Thiebaud’s paintings, we can have his cakes and eat it too... And talking about priceless advice from another smart and famous California artist Beatrice Wood (b. 1893-1998) who miraculously lived and worked up to the last 105th year of her life. When asked what was the secret to her personal and artistic vivaciousness...she famously replied, “there is no secret, just young men and plenty of chocolate.” Hmm, good food for thought... Last weekend I visited two Los Angeles artists, Anthony James, at his studio in Downtown LA’s Art District, and Simon Ouwerkerk, at his studio in Manhattan Beach. It was my first experience seeing Wayne Thiebaud at home in Sacramento in 1961. James’s art in person. His spacious studio was filled with his Artwork ©Wayne Thiebaud/Licensed by VAGA at Artists Rights Society, New York. signature monumental geometric sculptures incorporating glass, steel, and LED structures. As impressive as they are from a distance, at first glance, they are even more magical up-close when you discover that you are staring into the illusionary infinite space. British-born Anthony James lives and works in New York, Los Angeles, and Munich. Looking at his bronze, copper, and aluminum sculptures inspired by his love for Ferraris, made me think that Los Angeles, the City of Angels and Cars, is James’s place to be... I have had the good fortune to know Simon Ouwerkerk and his art for a number of years. I was looking forward to seeing his solo exhibition Form and Movement at the Manhattan Beach Art Center, envisioned and curated by Chairman of the Board, Homeira Goldstein. The exhibition presents Ouwerkerk’s recent abstract organic sculptures. Unfortunately, because of the pandemic, this exhibition is currently not open for visitors. But here’s the good news; Manhattan Beach Art Center made a courageous and creative solution to the problem. Most of the metal sculptures by Simon Ouwerkerk, installed inside of the galleries, will be moved and installed -just Portrait of Beatrice Wood in her Ojai studio, 1983, from the Jim McHugh Artist Archives for a day- outside of the Art Center. So, we have a chance to see his art on Saturday, November 21st and for yet another daySaturday, December 19th. I am particularly eager to see his organic-shaped silver shining metal sculptures, inspired by breathing and moving human bodies. My advice to those of you who are planning to visit the exhibition, take a look at the video introducing you to the artist and his art making at https://tinyurl.com/y5n2lypb Let me finish today with the news about upcoming Zoom Webinar Lecture at the Wende Museum (https://tinyurl.com/yy8k3xdb), this Friday, November 20th, at 12pm PST. The subject of this lecture by Arch Getty, Professor of History at UCLA, is “Soviet Anti-Semitisms.” Before the Anthony James Studio - REPOSE, 2020.

Fishing’s Hidden Carbon Footprint Researchersdiscoverthatfishingreducescarbonsequestrationintheocean

FISH THAT DIES NATURALLY IN THE OCEAN SINKS TO THE DEPTHS, taking with it all the carbon it contains. Yet, when a fish is caught, most of this carbon is released into the atmosphere as CO2. An international research consortium including scientists from UC Santa Barbara has estimated that because of this overlooked phenomenon, carbon emissions from fishing are actually 25 percent higher than what up to now was considered from fuel consumption alone. What’s more, part of the carbon extracted from the oceans is in areas where fishing is not economically profitable in the absence of government subsidies. This study is published in Science Advances. Carbon is a major component in the molecules that make up living tissue. Large fish like tuna, sharks, and swordfish are composed of 10 to 15 percent carbon. When they die, they quickly sink to the deep sea. As a result, most of the carbon they contain is sequestered for thousands or even millions of years. They are therefore literal carbon sinks, the size of which has never been estimated before. This natural phenomenon, a blue carbon pump, has been greatly disrupted by industrial fishing. “When we catch fish for our consumption, we also extract the carbon in their bodies, a fraction of which would have naturally sunk to the bottom of the ocean Juan Mayorga where it would have otherwise stayed, sequestered for many years,” said coauthor Juan Mayorga, a marine data scientist at UC Santa Barbara’s Environmental Market Solutions Lab. Scientists had never estimated the amount of carbon extracted and released into the atmosphere as a result of fishing. “This is a step forward toward more holistic, science-based assessments of the status of fisheries management,” Mayorga said, “and opens the door to innovative financing models including tapping into carbon markets.” Industrial fishing would therefore emit a double amount of CO2 into the atmosphere: not only do the boats massively emit greenhouse gases by consuming fuel Steve Gaines oil, but in addition, by extracting fish from the sea, they release CO2 which would otherwise remain captive in the ocean. “This is the first time that we have estimated the quantity of this ‘blue carbon’ that is released into the atmosphere by fishing,” explained coauthor David Mouillot, a professor at the University of Montpellier. This estimate is far from negligible since researchers consider this carbon sequestration deficit in the deep ocean would represent more than 25 percent of the previous carbon balance of industrial fishing activities. The researchers’ findings imply that estimates of carbon emissions from industrial fishing should be revised upwards. “Three quarters of these real emissions are related to fuel consumption, and one quarter comes from the fact that the carbon contained in the fish caught is released as CO2 into the atmosphere instead of remaining buried in the seabed,” the researchers said. For the authors of the study, these new data bring another strong argument in favor of more reasoned fishing: “The annihilation of the blue carbon pump represented by these large fish suggests that new protection and management measures must be put in place, so that more large fish can remain a carbon sink and no longer become an additional CO2 source,” said lead author Gaël Mariani, a doctoral student at the University of Montpellier. Above all, we need to fish better, added Mouillot. Fishing boats sometimes go to very remote areas, which causes enormous fuel consumption, even though the fish caught in these areas are not profitable and fishing is only viable thanks to subsidies. Researchers estimate that 43.5 percent of this “blue carbon” extracted by fishing comes from such areas. “We do not have to stop fishing to regain many of these carbon sequestration benefits,” said coauthor Steve Gaines, director of UCSB’s Bren School of Environmental Science & Management. “If we fish in the right places and at sustainable rates, we can rebuild a significant amount of this natural blue carbon sink.” PrintedwithpermissionofUCSBOfficeofPublicAffairsandCommunications
