De La Guerra Plaza to Awaken for the Holidays


By Robert Shutt / VOICE

T’S TIME PULL OUT YOUR HOLIDAY SWEATERS and pop on a wool cap because a European-style twilight market is opening on December 6th at De La Guerra Plaza in Santa Barbara featuring craft goods and artisanal food and drink from over 70 local vendors. The event is designed to help along the city’s plan to reestablish the plaza as the heart of downtown. In addition to a wide array of food and unique products for purchase, the market will have a wine garden with local wineries pouring their latest creations, live music, Santa and friends, and a kid’s zone with activities and games. The City of Santa Barbara is presenting the event with help from Santa Barbara Trading Post, Bright Event Rentals, and Bella Vista Lighting. A pop-up preview of the holiday market will take place the weekend after Black Friday. The pop-up will feature live art, local designers, and several craftgood vendors. With big plans for De La Guerra Plaza already being put together at City Hall, city leaders are hoping the holiday market will help people rediscover the plaza and draw public interest to changes that are coming to the area. Discussions and plans for the revitalization of De La Guerra Plaza in downtown Santa Barbara officially re-launched recently with the first meeting of a design advisory committee. The city sees the plaza as an opportunity to revitalize the public space, first designated in 1853, and reactivate it as the center of town. Tasks to be completed will include expanding the available space in the square by making structural and aesthetic improvements that will create a more functional space that can be utilized for the community’s arts and cultural

events, such as Old Spanish Days, and throughout the year. An expansion could also give a “permanent” home to the weekly Saturday Farmer’s Market. The entire revitalization is projected to cost $3 million and be completed by the end of 2020. The first committee meeting took place on November 8th and information gathered from a public workshop that took place earlier in March as well as input from key stakeholders in the plaza was discussed. Representatives from RRM Design Group, the firm selected as the project architect, were instructed to create a design that facilitates the main priorities for the plaza. Keeping in mind several historic features like old trees and an adobe wall, design ideas like a single-level ground surface, landscaping that will provide shade, and an alternative to pavers were discussed. The concept of removing parking from the plaza’s section of De La Guerra Street so that it would be a pedestrian-only space was also presented. A process of organizing adjacent businesses that currently face away to have their storefronts modified to face the plaza was presented as well. Over the next five to six months and several more meetings, the committee hopes to create a concept plan that will go through the city’s development review process with approval of the final design coming from the Historic Landmarks Commission. RRM will be returning


to the committee on January 23rd with two conceptual design options, based on public and stakeholder input that will be evaluated and discussed. These designs will, ideally, take into account existing constraints on the plaza and integrate its historical context. With funding from Measure C and the support of the community, the committee will continue with guiding staff members and architects in developing conceptual drawings. City Councilmember Kristen Sneddon has been elected as the committee’s chair and Lesley Wiscomb, of the city’s Planning Commission, has been elected as vice chair. The committee also includes representatives from Parks and Recreation, the Historic Landmarks Commission, the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation, and the Santa Barbara Certified Farmers Market including: Jason Dominguez, City Council; Michael Jordan, Planning Commission; Michael Drury and Julio Juan Veyna, Historic Landmarks Commission; Beebe Longstreet and Roger Perry, Parks & Recreation Commission; Sam Edelman, Santa Barbara Certified Farmers’ Market; Dr. Anne Petersen, Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation; Brad Hess, Principal Project Manager; Sara Iza, Senior Planner; and Phil Davis, Engineering Technician.

Geek. Poser. Jock. Beauty Queen. Wannabe. These are the labels that can last a lifetime. With an unforgettable rock score from Tony Award-winning composer, Jason Robert Brown, (Parade, The Last Five Years, Bridges of Madison County) 13 is a musical about fitting in – and standing out! Evan Goldman is plucked from his fast-paced, preteen New York City life and plopped into a sleepy Indiana town following his parents divorce. Surrounded by an array of simpleminded middle school students, he needs to establish his place in the popularity pecking order. Can he situate himself on a comfortable link of the food chain... or will he dangle at the end with the outcasts?!?

Resurrection and Realpolitik: Mozart, Mahler, and Julia Wolfe


Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE

USICAL PROGRAMMING SELDOM CREATES EXQUISITE CONTRASTS such as found in The Santa Barbara Symphony’s performance last weekend, which was insightfully prepared by Maestro Nir Kabaretti. The Santa Barbara Symphony, with guest artist soprano Anya Matanovič, offered an intriguing program at Santa Barbara’s Granada Theatre that outlined a lovely and sensible narrative arc. Two works focused on ecstasy and metamorphosis Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate, K. 165 which opened the program and Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 in G Major which brought the evening to a gentle and meditative close. Sandwiched between was Julia Wolfe’s automaton nightmare about the world in which we live today, Fuel for Strings (2007).

Performing Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate, K,165 Conductor Nir Kabaretti, The Santa Barbara Symphony, and Soprano Anya Matanovič

Kabaretti opened last Saturday night’s concert with a lean and polished performance of Mozart’s Exsultate, jubilate Motet for Soprano and Orchestra K. 165 (1773). Emphasizing the elegant virtuosity and stylish phrasing the orchestra has achieved over the years under Kabaretti’s attentive leadership, the performance also highlighted local soprano Anya Matanovič’s clarion Returning from intermission are SBS Advocates singing.

Of course we all started talking and outgoing Channing invited us to visit his ranch the next day.

I had known Tony from our Art Affiliates of UCSB in the late 1990s. And then many years later when I decided to start taking UCSB Adult Education classes, Tony was one of my teachers. Meanwhile, of course, he and wife Barbara were good social friends. It was he who stirred up my former interest in collage, which I first was introduced to by the late great Bill Dole. Never would I dream that I would be represented in an exhibition with these two men in a gallery named for Channing. It has been a tremendous thrill for me. And there is a show brewing where I not only am represented with Tony, but superb printmaker Rosemarie Gebhart (well represented in the Gifford collection) and another former teacher of mine. I took assemblage with Susan Tibbles. This is a story that has to wait until A treasure from past - Tony Askew over mid-December and then I will have lots to say. 40 years ago Photos by Beverley Jackson

Cameron Douglas and actress Kelsey Douglas, and director Scorsese’s wife, the accomplished book editor Helen Morris. This gathering of film luminaries was followed by presentations and a multi-course dinner in the ballroom. Pacino spoke with VOICE about the importance of film locations and settings, bringing back fond memories from his experience of filming Godfather II on the forested shores of West Lake Tahoe, in the autumn of 1973. Following the red carpet experience, welcoming remarks from SBIFF Executive Director Roger Durling and Board President Lynda Weinman were offered. Between courses, attendees enjoyed film clips from Scorsese’s films. Special thanks to YTS Digital Films for providing video coverage of the presentation in the ballroom for the main event which offered limited press access. One of the presenters included a spirited Al Pacino, who revealed Helen Morris and Honoree Martin Scorsese his admiration for Scorsese, exclaiming, “You experiment, you take chances. He is so easy to trust…He sets the stage for you, like a tightrope walker; Marty is a net. He sets it up, and then he’s there. Things come out of you because he is there. He gets some of the greatest performances to film.” Pacino added, after seeing The Irishman: “I didn’t know what to do after I saw the movie. Marty had somehow expressed something about our world and, about ourselves, that is more than just a story. And that is one of his great gifts.” He then dove into a comic tale involving a Frank Sinatra concert and drummer Buddy Rich, offering vocal impressions of staccato drums, comparing Scorsese’s artistry to the masterful percussions of Rich. Mr. Pacino then yielded the podium to Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio (The Revenant) who mentioned, “He [Scorsese] treats everyone as a real collaborator…he has become much more than a director to me….and has one of the greatest bodies of work in film history... He has a special kind of cinematic immortality. There is quite likely no individual more fitting on this earth to receive Honoree Martin Scorsese shares his thoughts this award.” Called forth to receive his award, Mr. Scorsese acknowledged DiCaprio’s film career: “I see the same kind of commitment in Leo that Kirk Douglas had. He was inspired by Bob [De Niro] and Al’s [Pacino] generation, which was inspired by Kirk’s generation. I realized that dedication to the art form is always rare, so when you see this incredible commitment and dedication, please don’t take it for granted.” He further shared, “Today, we’re in a world where some acting has to be vigilant. Some actually believe that these qualities that we’re talking about can be replaced by algorithms and formulas and business calculations. But please remember this – we are the only solution. There’s no substitute for individual participants, as Kirk Douglas knew and expressed in his long film career, and that’s why I’m so honored to be accepting this award.” Scorsese, award in hand, received an overwhelming ovation from all those present as he walked offstage for more portraits. Another solidly successful fundraising venture raising thousands, this evening provided support for a variety of the Festival’s community and educational programs including Mike’s Field Trip to the Movies, the 10-10-10-student filmmaking competition, and Apple Box Family Films.

NE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL FILMMAKERS IN CINEMATIC HISTORY, Martin Scorsese, and scores of his film lovers and friends gathered within the luxuriousness of the Ritz-Carlton Bacara Resort and Spa, for a black-tie event and sumptuous banquet on Thursday, November 12th honoring the film director and historian. Convened as 14th edition of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival’s Kirk Douglas Award for Excellence in Film which recognizes superlative accomplishments from individuals in filmmaking, the event drew 260 guests. The anticipated event was sponsored by one of the last remaining studio-era veterans in Hollywood, the 102 years-young actor/producer Kirk Douglas, and award namesake. Past honorees have included actors and directors such as Hugh Jackman, Dame Judi Dench, Warren Beatty, Jane Fonda, Jessica Lange, Forest Whitaker, Robert De Niro, Michael Douglas, and Quentin Tarantino, among others. Scorsese is at the top of his profession at age 74, recently completing a remarkable new project produced by the streaming service Netflix, called The Irishman. Primarily renowned for his stylish illustrations of the Leonardo DiCaprio, Honoree Martin Scorsese, and Al Pacino hidden world of organized crime, Scorsese’s body of work has encompassed gangland thrillers such as Mean Streets, Good Fellas, The Departed, Gangs of New York, and The Aviator, as well as the musical, New York, New York, and a wealth of documentaries including The Last Waltz, showing The Band in concerts, and My Voyage to Italy, a keenly compelling examination of the heritage of Italian filmmaking. He has also been a leading proponent of film preservation. His cinematic brush often portrays the brutality of the criminal class and his new film is no exception to his legacy as a vivid cinematic storyteller. The film stars are Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci. At the red carpet reception before the dinner, guests were served Belvedere Vodka with cocktails such as the Belvedere Collins, and the Belvedere Eastern Standard. Famous supporters arrived including the legendary actor Al Pacino (The Godfather), and Hollywood mega-star Leonardo DiCaprio (Once Upon A Time in Hollywood). Also attending were the grandchildren of Kirk Douglas,

Refining Montecito Water Rates for “Desal”: A Balancing Act


By Melinda Burns / Contributor

HICH MONTECITO WATER CUSTOMERS SHOULD BEAR THE GREATEST SHARE of the $4.3 million yearly cost of purchasing Santa Barbara water for the next 50 years? A draft overview of potential water rate increases, presented by the Montecito Water District board at a sparsely attended public workshop on Monday, included scenarios that would raise the monthly service charge for a ¾-inch water meter, standard for many single-family homes, from $45 now to up to $128 by 2024. Higher fixed charges would provide more fiscal stability for the district, the presentation showed, but small users would be hit with larger bills.

The Montecito Water Board wants to buy enough water from Santa Barbara to meet about a third of the community’s annual demand. The city would produce the extra supply at its $72 million desalination plant, but the water shipped to Montecito would come from other city sources as well. The Montecito Water Board is scheduled to adopt rate hikes to pay for Santa Barbara water next April; they would go into effect on May 1st. Under one scenario unveiled by the board this week, residential water bills, currently $142 per month, on average, would more than double to $291 by 2024, while commercial and institutional bills – for large users such as the cemetery, golf courses and hotels – would increase by 47 percent during the same period, from $851 per month now, on average, to $1,251.

Growing Solutions


With a city supply on hand, district officials said, Montecito could reduce its dependence on state aqueduct water, saving up to $1 million per year. The new rates would include increases to cover inflation, officials said, but would not cover the future costs of drawing up a groundwater sustainability plan, repairing district storage tanks, or building a wastewater recycling plant. On Tuesday, at its regular monthly meeting, the board for the first time announced its intent, in collaboration with the Montecito Sanitary District, to supply non-potable recycled water for irrigation to the Santa Barbara Cemetery and other large customers. Estimates for that project range from $5 million to $16 million. Melinda Burns is a freelance journalist based in Santa Barbara.

F YOU WANT TO EASE FOOD INSECURITY, foster social bonds, encourage health and wellbeing, protect the environment and maybe even promote equity within the community, you might consider throwing on some gardening gloves and picking up a trowel. According to UC Santa Barbara’s Daniela Soleri, a research scientist in geography, and David Cleveland, a professor of environmental studies, food gardening is more than a pleasant pastime with healthy results. Taking a more prosocial and ecological approach, they say, can make it a local action with the potential for positive broader outcomes as well. Though food gardens have played an important role in our food system for millennia, as an area of study they have been neglected by researchers. In the Anthropocene — the most recent, and human-influenced, geologic time period — food gardens are facing a unique set of challenges. There is the existential threat of the climate crisis, but also new conditions resulting from increasing resource scarcity, environmental degradation, noncommunicable diseases, social inequity and other trends. “Addressing these new conditions often requires new responses, different than the coping strategies gardeners use to deal with familiar variation,” said Soleri, who with Cleveland and University of Arizona professor Steven Smith recently published Food Gardens for a Changing World, (CABI Publishing, 2019). The book is a resource for students, instructors, researchers, policymakers, and gardeners who want to understand the impact of Anthropocene trends on food gardening, and how to successfully respond to the changes incurred by those trends. It is based on the biological, ecological and social concepts underlying food gardening, rather than the recipe approach found in most gardening books. “Unlike learning recipes, understanding concepts empowers gardeners to be resilient in responding to new challenges,” Cleveland said. The book offers many examples of such concepts being applied, as well as worked examples for conducting simple garden experiments. “While climate scientists can confidently predict the broad effects of climate change, no one really knows the details of what it’s going to bring to food gardens in California or elsewhere,” Soleri said. “It’s the same with other trends. For example, no one really knows all the specific consequences that the current, incredible amount of social inequity is going to have for access to

Sense and Sensibility: Adapted by Kate Hamill ANE AUSTEN’S NOVEL Sense and Sensibility has been adapted by Kate Hamill and turned into a magical, memorable, theatrical experience. In this commedia dell’arte production, a wild and delicious interpretation of Austen’s romantic novel is brought to life leaping from the 18th Century! Beautifully directed by Katie Laris, the Dashwood sisters, sensible ‘Elinor’ (Penny O’Mahoney) and ALEX hypersensitive ‘Marianne’ HENTELOFF (Miranda Ortega), are THEATRE REVIEW financially destitute and socially vulnerable after their father’s sudden death. Yet the high energy of this version is more than simply a wild, delicious commedia dell’arte interpretation by Austen. It holds true to her values of persons, society, and human frailties and shows us how much of Austen’s world is still with us. (Think the #MeToo movement.) Ms. O’Mahoney and Ms. Ortega are splendid throughout and they share those feelings with all the ‘Gossips’ who follow them around and enhance the sense of a socially stifling world. The staging,

involving moving chairs and other furniture, windows and doors is vigorous and punctuating. The flow is elegantly choreographed. The emotional acrobatics the ladies must go through would be exhausting, were it not so exhilarating. Winding through so large a group of characters, we must take note of strong support from the comic joys of ‘Mrs. Jennings’ (Robert Allen) and young ‘Margaret Dashwood’ (Isabelle Marchand), as well as ‘Lucy Steele’ (Anjolie Ochalek) and her sister ‘Anne Steele’ (Lizzy Urwick) and the fine men who love the sisters: ‘John Willoughby’ (Ryan Rathbun) and ‘Colonel Brandon’ (Johnny Waaler). Sense and Sensibility’s artistic team includes Director Katie Laris, Patricia L. Frank (Scenic and Lighting Design), Pamela Shaw (Costume Design) and Katya Bloom (Movement Advisor). Everyone was superb!

This student showcase plays at SBCC Theatre Arts Dept. through November 23rd at the Jurkowitz Theatre, SBCC West Campus.

Start of a New Housing Boom?


By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

E SHOULD BE CAREFUL announcing a new housing boom. It can be a two-edged pronouncement, since a housing bust followed the last housing boom and precipitated the Great Recession. But it certainly looks like residential construction is one sector on a tear at present; at the same time there is a significant housing shortage and housing construction isn’t yet back to historical levels, per the single-family starts graph (on the right). Housing construction is booming per the latest U.S. Census Bureau report on housing starts and permits, but is far below the peak of some 1.7 million units just prior to the Great Recession. October starts are at a 1.314 million annual rate, the strongest showing since May last year. Permits are the big positive in today’s report, well above expectations at a 1.461 million rate which is the strongest since the subprime housing bubble bust in 2007. The National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) Chairman Greg Ugalde said, “Home builders are seeing more building opportunities as market conditions remain solid. Builder sentiment remains strong, and we are seeing an uptick in buyer traffic.” The October 1.31 million starts is the number of housing units builders would begin if they kept this pace for the next 12 months, explained the NAHB in their press release. Within this overall number, single-family starts increased 2.0 percent to 936,000 units. The multifamily sector, which includes apartment buildings and condos, increased 8.6 percent to a 378,000 pace. “Led by lower mortgage rates, the pace of single-family permits has been increasing since April, and the rate of single-family starts has grown since May,” said NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz. “Solid wage growth, healthy employment gains, and an increase in household formations are also contributing to the steady rise in home production.” Three-month averages for the key single-family category confirm the construction and future permits strength. Starts are running at a 923,000 rate on the average which is another 12-year high and up sharply over the last two months. Single-family permits are at an 888,000 rate which is likewise pivoting higher and also the strongest in 12 years. But longer term, single-family construction has consistently been at or above one million annualized units since the 1970s with a much smaller U.S. population. So there is a lot of catching up Computer Oriented RE Technology For Information on all Real Estate Sales: 805-962-2147 • JimWitmer@cox.net • Cortsb.com

from the housing bust and Great Recession. According to FRED, most Americans are in fact still recovering from the Great Recession. And to even begin to approach the historical starts’ average, it needs record-low interest rates to continue, given the depressed earnings picture for most Americans since the Great Recession. Personal incomes have been consistently lower because most new jobs created today are in the lower-paying service sector, such as warehousing, health care, transportation, and the like, even in our fully-employed economy. But the prognosis for interest rates is they could even go lower, which should continue the housing ‘boom’, or whatever we call it. EU countries such as Denmark are already offering negative fixed interest rate mortgages, believe it or not. Can that happen here? It will be the subject for a future column.
