“Little Orchestra” Pink Martini Returns for Holiday Show


By Caitlin O’Hara, UCSB Arts & Lectures

Photo by Autumn DeWilde

HE GLOBE HOPPING, INNOVATIVE, AND INTERNATIONALLY-ACCLAIMED "little orchestra," Pink Martini, will return to Santa Barbara with their Holiday Show, featuring festive holiday songs from around the world on Sunday, December 8th at 7pm at The Arlington Theatre. At what is sure to be the best holiday party you'll attend this year, they'll perform tracks from their holiday album, Joy to the World – with classics like White Christmas alongside Hebrew prayers, Chinese New Year tunes, and a samba-inspired version of Auld Lang Syne – as well as crowd favorites from their non-holiday albums. "This multidenominational, multicultural jubilee overflows with enough holiday spirit to warm your entire family," writes NPR. Pink Martini Pink Martini's infectiously joyous music will have you dancing in the aisles. In 1994 in his hometown of Portland, Ore., Thomas Lauderdale was working in politics, thinking that one day he would run for mayor. Like other eager politicians-in-training, he went to every political fundraiser under the sun… but was

dismayed to find the music at these events underwhelming, lackluster, loud, and un-neighborly. Drawing inspiration from music from all over the world – crossing genres of classical, jazz, and old-fashioned pop – and hoping to appeal to conservatives and liberals alike, he founded Pink Martini in 1994 to provide more beautiful and inclusive musical soundtracks for political fundraisers for causes such as civil rights, affordable housing, the environment, libraries, public broadcasting, education, and parks. One year later, Lauderdale called China Forbes, a Harvard classmate who was living in New York City, and asked her to join Pink Martini. They began to write songs together. Their first song, Sympathique, became an overnight sensation in France, was nominated for Song of the Year at France’s Victoires de la Musique Awards, and to this day remains a mantra ("Je ne veux pas travailler" or "I don’t want to work") for striking French workers. Says Lauderdale, "We're very much an American band, but we spend a lot of time abroad and therefore have the incredible diplomatic opportunity to represent a broader, more inclusive America… the America which remains the most heterogeneously populated country in the world… composed of people of every country, every language, every religion."

Featuring a dozen musicians, Pink Martini performs its multilingual repertoire on concert stages and with symphony orchestras throughout Europe, Asia, Greece, Turkey, the Middle East, Northern Africa, Australia, New Zealand, South America and North America. Pink Martini made its European debut at the Cannes Film Festival in 1997 and its orchestral debut with the Oregon Symphony in 1998 under the direction of Norman Leyden. Since then, the band has gone on to play with more than 50 orchestras around the world, including multiple engagements with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, the Boston Pops, the National Symphony at the Kennedy Center, the San Francisco Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra and the BBC Concert Orchestra at Royal Albert Hall in London. Another career high includes the grand opening of the Los Angeles Philharmonic's Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall, with return for biannual engagements for New Year's Eve. And, in part because of UCSB Arts & Lectures’ annual presentation of the orchestra, Pink Martini’s Holiday Show has become a favorite Santa Barbara tradition. “Rich, hugely approachable, utterly cosmopolitan yet utterly unpretentious... It seems to speak to just about everybody,” is how The Washington Post describes the popular ensemble. Presented through the generosity of Patricia Gregory, for the Baker Foundation, the Corporate Sponsor of the event is Mission Wealth. Media sponsor is KCBX 89.5 FM Santa Barbara and wine sponsor Potek Winery. UCSB Arts & Lectures 2019-20 season Community Partners are the Natalie Orfalea Foundation & Lou Buglioli and Corporate Season Sponsor is SAGE Publishing.

Montecito Bank & Trust Awards Community Dividends® 188 Local Nonprofits Share in over $1 Million

HE ANNUAL “BANKSGIVING” BY MONTECITO BANK & TRUST, at their Community Dividends Awards Luncheon, was a festive and heart warming beginning to the holiday season, held at the Coral Casino Four Seasons Biltmore this week. “Montecito Bank & Trust is the Best Community Bank on the Central Coast, because Mike Towbes, and a handful of local investors who started the bank 44 years ago, believed in service, service, service… and a vision of meeting the community banking needs while investing a meaningful portion of our profits back into the community,” shared Janet Garufis, Chairman and CEO, as she welcomed the audience. Now in its 17th year, this unique giving program has granted a total of $17 million to local Santa Barbara and Ventura County nonprofits. The Four Seasons Biltmore’s La Pacifica ballroom was filled with 188 central coast nonprofits. Chairman & CEO, Janet Garufis, specifically thanked them for their service to the community and announced a new twist for this year’s event, “As part of his legacy, Michael Towbes always wanted Community Dividends to grow, to find new ways to share the Bank’s success and to have an even greater impact, particularly on the most vulnerable in our communities. As we thought about this year’s Community Dividends, we wanted to celebrate the Bank’s continued strength and success by doing something a little different. Asking ourselves how can we help our communities make even greater strides in the face of challenges that come in all shapes and sizes? It is with that thought in mind that I am so pleased to introduce the Daniel Estrada, MB&T; Karen Arreola, MB&T; and Michael Towbes Community Impact Grant,” said Garufis. Ben Scott, MB&T She then invited Rolf Geyling, President of the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission, up to the podium to accept the inaugural award which included a check for $100,000 to help them continue to serve those in our community that struggle with homelessness and addiction. The Community Dividends grant program was created in 2003 by Michael Towbes, Montecito Bank & Trust’s late owner and founder, with a primary focus on supporting organizations or programs that serve low- and moderateincome individuals and families in Santa Barbara and Shannon Kelly, People’s Self-Help Housing; Ventura Counties. Dividends are awarded to organizations Maria McCall, MB&T; and Gerald Parent, MB&T that serve youth and education, social services, medical and health services, and the arts. Nonprofit organizations look forward to this event especially networking with their nonprofit colleagues, sharing ideas, and building stronger bonds within the community. Montecito Bank & Trust held an educational event prior to the lunch where guest speaker, David Greco, M.A., president & CEO of Social Sector Partners, shared ways that nonprofit leaders can engage funders in conversations on what it Angela Krablin, MB&T; Robin Chesler, Conejo Valley Lifestyle; and Rona Barrett, Rona Barret Fdn really costs to deliver on their mission.

Richard Ross receives Claes Nobel World Betterment Award in recognition of his work documenting incarcerated youth


By Andria Estrada / The UC Santa Barbara Current

Photos by Richard Ross

T WASN’T HIS PLAN, but Richard Ross has become a de facto expert on the subject of juveniles in detention. And now, for his groundbreaking — and, at times heartbreaking — work documenting the lives of incarcerated youth, the UC Santa Barbara Distinguished Professor Emeritus has received the 2019 Claes Nobel World Betterment Award from The National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS). Established in 2013 to highlight outstanding role models for young people, the Betterment

Award recognizes individuals who are making exceptional contributions to the promotion of global unity and cultural understanding in their particular area of influence. “In my work with outstanding students through the National Society of High School Scholars I routinely identify gifted and talented students who have the potential to make a real difference in the world,” said Nobel, who founded NSHSS to continue her family’s legacy of rewarding excellence and promoting peace. “I have witnessed how influential leaders like Mr. Ross can have a profound effect on these young emerging leaders.” Ross, a photographer and activist, is the creator of the award-winning three-volume “Juvenile In Justice Series,” which includes Juvenile In Justice (2012), Girls In Justice (2015), and Juvie Talk (2017). “Juvenile In Justice” documents the placement and treatment of juveniles in facilities that are meant to assist, confine and/or punish them. Girls In Justice explores the conditions and contexts of girls — ranging in age from eleven to 18 — remanded to detention centers, and in Juvie Talk Ross uses the teens’ and adolescents’ own words and vernacular to share what is true about their lives in juvenile placement centers. “It is, of course, a great honor to receive this award,” said Ross. “These kids are the stakeholders and their peers with less privilege and opportunity are the ones who are in juvenile hall, shelters, or group homes. So I am asking them to pay attention to those who are not in the room.” Ross’s work requires a blend of artistic vision, sensitivity, and a high degree of emotional intelligence, all of which he honed over years he spent interviewing and documenting more than 1,000 of these young people. Ross’s work has taken him to over 400 sites and 35 states. Given the sheer number of detention centers he has visited, as well as the number of residents he has interviewed, Ross has a rare perspective on the lives and histories of the teens and adolescents he has photographed. He also has become a conduit between them and the world, giving voice to kids who otherwise have no way to speak up. And the majority of those he has queried have been willing to talk. Like many of Ross’s initiatives, “In Justice” is rooted in an earlier project: Architecture of Authority, which presents unsettling images of architectural spaces that exert power over the individuals — oftentimes children — within them. Among those spaces are churches, mosques, civic spaces, the Iraqi National Assembly hall, an interrogation room at Guantánamo, and a capital punishment death chamber. “By chance, I ended up at the El Paso Juvenile Detention Center, which looked a lot like Guantánamo, where I photographed,” Ross recalled. “I thought, ‘How do you have a juvenile detention center that’s similar to Guantánamo in its architecture?’” “Then I started talking to the kids,” he continued, “and once that happened there was no turning back.” Founded in 2002 by James W. Lewis and Claes Nobel, a senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes, The National Society of High School Scholars recognizes academic excellence at the high school level and helps to advance the goals and aspirations of high-achieving students through unique learning experiences, scholarships, internships, international study, and peer networks. NSHSS membership currently numbers more than 1.7 million in over 170 countries.”

Just in time for the Holidays Paseo Nuevo to celebrate their new look with Exclusive Events


E READY TO BE DAZZLED THIS HOLIDAY SEASON when Paseo Nuevo kicks off the holidays with a fresh new look after completing the first phase of their multimillion-dollar renovation. Visitors can shop new retailers, artisan markets, and pop-up shops, as well as gathering the family for exclusive, free community events! Following is a lineup of the season’s shopping destinations, events, and activities:

LET IT SNOW presented by Cottage Children’s Medical Center – Check out Santa Barbara’s best in snow! Nightly snowfall shows will take place twice each evening in Center Court as a flurry of white snow falls down on the Christmas tree, singing carolers, and shoppers, a tradition enjoyed by the entire family! This magical experience brings joy to all! Snowfall shows start promptly at 6pm and 7pm from Friday, November 29th through December 31st (no shows on Christmas Day). SILENT NIGHT SILENT DISCO presented by Cottage Children’s Medical Center – On Thursday, December 5th from 5:30 to 7:30pm, join friends and family for Silent Night, a silent disco holiday dance party for the entire family! Wear your ugliest sweater and be prepared to dance and sing-a-long to your favorite holiday tunes through headphones! Enjoy snowfall at 6pm and 7pm and of course Santa will drop in too. Join the community for the merriest night of the season – and it’s free! VISIT SANTA – Santa takes up residence in his Santa Barbara home at Paseo Nuevo’s Center Court starting Friday, November 29th! Children will be able to visit him daily through December 24th. Santa will be open early on December 8th from 9 to 11am for children with special needs while Tuesday evenings will be dedicated to pet photos where even the furriest family members can snap a photo with Santa. Every child will receive a free gift and Santa’s elves will be on hand to catch the precious moment in a photo. Photo packages start at just $24.99.

SUSAN CUMMINGS HOLIDAY TRUNK SHOW Visit the Museum Store for a special holiday trunk show with Ojai jewelry designer Susan Cummings. The creative inspiration behind Susan’s designs lies in the softened, somewhat unrefined forms found in everyday life. These forms drive her design direction, along with the observance of how objects co-exist together in nature and how their chaotic ways make them beautiful and perfect in their imperfection. She blends these unconventional forms with hand chosen, premier materials to create an anciently sophisticated yet casual lifestyle collection. See these new ancient-inspired designs at the Museum Store!

The result is their new Santa Barbara Artisan shop at 605 State St, where artists rent booths or sell on consignment. Candles, jackets, necklaces, paintings, honey, bowls and hats grace the display tables Cossman’s supportive husband built. There is still space for new artisans to bring their wares in time for the Holiday rush. Customers were overheard raving “Beautiful shop!” and commending the trio’s altruistic mission, “We need

to help local people!” Lindsey hopes to offer art workshops to Santa Barbara’s Youth in the near future. They will be participating in the 1st Thursdays Downtown. Tuesday - Sat; 11am- 6 or 7pm; Sunday’s 12 - 6pm

Welcome to NEW on STATE! by VOICE Magazine’s newest columnist Amy Beth Katz. Amy will be exploring our community’s lovely downtown and bringing back gems for us all... people, experiences, retail opportunities, and more... Enjoy!

Miss Behavin’, 322 Paseo Nuevo


ISS BEHAVIN’ at 322 Paseo Nuevo is for missies who misbehave, AND those who follow the rules— of fashion. Silky tops celebrating the midriff; serpent earrings slithering; happy hippy blouses and tiger-striped body suits: this is campus-haute couture at its wildest, roaring to be worn on the dance floor, champaign brunch at the beach, or Homecoming.  Owner Kelly Scott knows what Co-eds are craving that will cover— and bare—their Santa Barbara, sundrenched skin. An alum of San Marcos High School and UCSB, she moved to New York City to earn a Master’s degree in Fashion, and a hands-on education at Juicy Couture, Intermix, and Vogue magazine, then returned to Isla Vista in 2007 to open Miss Behavin’ on Trigo Road, right above Bagel Cafe. She planned to open this Paseo Nuevo store as a holiday “Pop-Up”, but going back and forth between IV and SB was too much, so she took the leap and moved everything to the State Street location, deciding to give it her all. “In IV, it was a ghost town during the holidays. But not on State Street in Santa Barbara!” Assured an excited Scott. “I am gearing up for our first Black Friday — it’s really exciting! The country is in middle of a retail apocalypse, but I feel like I am doing alright. Shopping is fun! College age is fun! It is so cool for me to be downtown here now in Santa Barbara.” Scott especially enjoys that former customers that graduated from UCSB are finding their way to her new shop: “The girls see the sign, and me, and are like, ‘oh my god!’ I am excited my IV girls are finding me down here, because this space in Paseo Nuevo mall is way cooler.”(For more info: Miss Behavin’ Boutique (@shopmissbehavin) • Instagram photos and videos)  Hours: Monday - Saturday 11:30AM - 7PM,  Closed Sundays

TORES ARE BASICALLY PASSING THANKSGIVING BY THIS YEAR, with all looking like Christmas is just weeks away. So I won’t be writing about that today. Actually a remark from three year old Lucas Acero led me to my column path today. Lucas simply remarked, “B.B., I saw big ostrich!” (I’m B.B.) Where that remark sent me was back about 15 years to the Solvang area when the big thing for gentlemen farmers had become ostrich farms. Arabian horses had been the big thing before, costing a lot of people a lot of lost money. Ostriches followed the Arabian horses. There were farms Ostrich (Struthio camelus) you could visit and even purchase ostrich eggs. There is still portrait at the Whipsnade Zoo in one you visit, that I know of. During a visit, you could see Bedfordshire, England. the real birds, which are the biggest living birds in the world. Consequently, their eggs are the world’s largest, at approximately 5.9 inches! A female ostrich can lay 40 to 100 eggs a year and remain productive, generally, for 25 to 35 years. I then remembered that at the height of the Santa Ynez ostrich craze my friend Princess Esra Jah was staying at her ranch in the Valley and hosted a party during the Christmas holidays for friends in the area. I was amazed to see that practically every other couple attending brought her an ostrich egg, Ukrainian decorated Ostrich Egg plain or decorated. I don’t happen to own an ostrich egg. I never have. But, I have hats, fans, and dresses trimmed in the ostrich feathers. And, I have memories of once long ago seeing famed fan dancer Sally Rand in a live stage performance on Broadway. She used big fans with huge ostrich feathers and maneuvered them so cleverly you could never tell if she was really nude behind them, as billed. The most elaborate use of ostrich feathers I’ve Sally Rand Fan Dance photo ever seen is on display in London until December 3rd at a private Christie’s auction exhibition. The exhibition is a combination of old master paintings to be coming up for sale and a specially designed collection of gowns by top Italian haute couture designing house Dolce & Gabbana that are suggested by the paintings in the sale. The gowns themselves certainly fit the term masterpieces, although contemporary. The jeweling and embroidery on some of the gowns must have taken three or four months labor to create. The old master paintings and decorative arts in the show date from the 14th to 19th century. My favorite in the Dolce & Gabbana collection is entirely made of ostrich feathers. There are, of course, no prices listed for the gowns, just the expected POR (price on request). Were they to be included in the sale, I have a feeling their prices would be right there with the paintings. Incidentally, not only are ostrich feathers showing up heavily in fall winter clothing and accessories in the U.S., but Thailand is really getting into the act with dresses and long gowns, From the Christie’s Auction Exhibition: Dolce as well as evening wraps of the bird feathers. I even & Gabbana Alta Moda organza corset found a little bridal attendant in an ostrich dress dress, entirely cross-stitched with the painting in Kharkiv, Ukraine.

EXPO: Alternative Uses of the Oil Platforms held at the Maritime Museum

profit organizations presented their ideas at tables throughout the Maritime Museum along with 15 minute presentations inside the second level Munger Theater. The presenters included Ocean Foresters, Marine Megatropolis, Blue Latitudes, Pacific Ocean Energy Trust, HUBBS Seaworld Research Institute, Bardex, and BOEM (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management). The keynote speaker later in the day was George Steinbach, executive director of the non-profit California Artificial Reef Enhancement Program, whose talk affirmed that the conversation was just beginning as to off-shore oil platform disposition. The Maritime Museum’s executive director, Greg Gorga added, “The Museum is proud to be a forum for a conversation to take place regarding the potential uses of the oil platforms. The event taking place today is only the beginning!” By the time this column goes to print, the 2019 Thanksgiving celebration will be over. We’ll all be noshing on turkey sandwiches, turkey hash, turkey burgers, and other post Thanksgiving culinary inventions. The celebratory weekend however, will still be going strong, so wishing you a happy weekend with friends and family will still be timely. So, have fun (and keep the Tums handy)! Courtesy Photo


MOST UNUSUAL AND INFORMATIVE EVENT TOOK PLACE at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum on Wednesday, November 20th … an almost all-day affair! I’m embarrassed to admit that due to a conflict I wasn’t able to attend, but it’s a timely topic important to our Santa Barbara Coastline that I would like to share with you. A half century after the 1969 oil spill in the Santa Barbra Channel, the region is about to experience another upheaval in the form of the large scale removal of the aging oil platforms that are long past their prime. Seven out of 19 of the platforms in the Channel have shut down operations and will eventually be decommissioned beginning in the 2020’s. Many more platforms will probably share the same fate along with their pipelines and onshore processing plants from Carpinteria to Gaviota. The first step is to plug dozens of offshore oil wells with cement – an expensive and time-consuming task, the cost of which the oil companies will bear. But then, what to do with the structures themselves? EXPO: Alternative Uses of the Oil Platforms was held at the Maritime Museum to inform and educate the public about the different options available for creating alternative uses for Santa Barbara’s channel oil platforms as they head toward eventual decommissioning. Proposals ranged from converting them into marine life reefs, protected areas, fishing George Steinbach reefs, or aquaculture facilities. Other potential uses might include renewable energy sources such as wind or wave power and desalination plants. The purpose of the day was to provide a forum and/or an open discussion of ideas as the community moves forward toward the next phase of the Channel oil platforms. Vendors, private enterprises, and non-

No two actors can deliver the goods like Hopkins and Pryce.

Santa Barbara Museum of Art

Jasper String Quartet – The Force is with them! HARISMATIC WELL DESCRIBES THE THRILLING ENERGY, perfect intonation, stunning blend, and intellectual prowess of the Jasper String Quartet which performed at the Mary Craig Auditorium at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art last week (November 21st). The Auditorium is a wonderful chamber music venue. Seating about 125, it offers an intimate audience experience. A bit dry acoustically, visiting ensembles, especially string quartets, must adjust their sound projection accordingly. Philadelphia-based Jasper String Quartet gave a superb recital there filling the room to bursting with their huge sonic presence. On the program, Beethoven’s String Quartet Op. 18, No. 4 in C minor (1801); an intriguing work by composer Vivian Fung, her String Quartet No. 3 (2013); and Schubert’s heartbreaking String Quartet No. 14 in D minor (1824) known as Death and the Maiden, composed at the beginning of the composer’s horrifying five-year decline and death from what was at that time incurable syphilis. Founded in 2006 while they were studying together at the Oberlin Conservatory, violinists J. Freivogel and Karen Kim, violist Sam Quintal, and cellist Rachel Henderson Freivogel have filled their Jasper trophy rack with international prizes and awards ever since. The ensemble’s latest CD, The Kernis Project: Debussy, was released in June and has garnered rave reviews. A compelling force majeure in the heady and competitive world of international string quartets, the Jaspers are the real deal. With the exception of Vivian Fung’s contemporary Quartet No. 3, the program began and ended with virtuoso standard repertory; Beethoven’s Quartet No. 4 and Schubert’s Death and the Maiden. Opening the concert with Beethoven, the Jaspers immediately transformed the room, the audience, and in particular the acoustic, filling the place with a remarkably focused, full-bodied, and gorgeously blended sound. The second movement Andante scherzoso quasi allegretto with its coy humor, Mozartean temperament, beautifully crafted fugato, and bright C

Major tonality in an otherwise C minor sound world sparkled with color and dynamic fun despite Beethoven’s ever-present occasional broods. The Jaspers’ clean, crisp playing, perfect intonation, and flawless technical execution illuminated all four movements, especially the last Allegro – Prestissimo. Canadian-born composer Vivian Fung is gifted with an imagination both intuitive and naïve. Her mesmerizing String Quartet No. 3 composed in 2013 is sophisticated in its compositional structure precisely to achieve the magical simplicity of her several sound illusions - a parlor organ intoning one of the guiding motives of the work; cluster chords of exquisite, otherworldly beauty; an angelic chorale tune; birdsong. In one continuous movement and lasting about ten minutes, Fung’s quartet is a reflection, at least partially, of the composer’s personal milieu, thoughtful and meditative The Jasper String Quartet: violinist J. Freivogel , violinist Karen Kim, cellist Rachel when west and east are in harmony, harsh, Henderson Freivogel, and violist Sam Quintal perilous, and craggy as the mountains of Banff was Death and the Maiden.

Sliding pitches, fascinating modes, players alike? From the first notes, Jasper Quartet’s interpretation sounds from centuries past, and contemporary mashup, the work’s jumped off the page. Informed and stylish, rich in detail, otherworldly ascending drift and dispersal at its end represented profoundly moving, the four voices of the quartet a rich blend of not only magnificently skillful compositional narrative, but timbre and temperament, this was a performance that will remain philosophical metamorphoses.

Consumer Confidence Is Boosting Housing


By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

EW-HOME SALES ARE NOW BACK TO THE LONG TERM AVERAGE in the above right graph that dates back to the 1960s, and consumers are still reasonably confident of their future. “Sales of new single‐family houses in October 2019 were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 733,000, according to estimates released jointly today by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This is 0.7 percent below the revised September rate of 738,000, but is 31.6 percent above the October 2018 estimate of 557,000.” This was the first time since 2007 that the annual pace of single-family home sales remained above 700,000 for three consecutive months, according to Calculated Risk. New-home sales were nearly 32 percent higher on an annual basis in October. This means that residential construction is also increasing the supply of new homes; at the same time as there is a significant housing shortage and housing construction isn’t yet back to historical levels.

And on to Consumer Confidence... Whereas, “Consumer confidence declined for a fourth consecutive month, driven by a softening in consumers’ assessment of current business and employment conditions,” said Lynn Franco, Senior Director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board. “The decline in the Present Situation Index suggests that economic growth in the final quarter of 2019 will remain weak. However, consumers’ short-term expectations improved modestly, and growth in early 2020 is likely to remain at around two percent. Overall, confidence levels are still high and should support solid spending during this holiday season.” So, although consumer confidence is down a bit from last year, it is still enough to cheer consumers for the holidays and boost home sales. I said I was also going to say something about interest rates trends last week. We only have to look to Japan and the EU to see that U.S. interest rates could continue downward, but only if our government doesn’t step in with public investments that are sorely needed—such as in our energy network, infrastructure, education,

President’s Corner C.A.R. Commends California Insurance Commissioner for Expediting Wildfire Victims’ Claims


By Thomas C. Schultheis / Special to VOICE

N LIGHT OF THE CAVE FIRE THAT BROKE OUT ON THE AFTERNOON OF NOVEMBER 25TH, I felt this was an appropriate and applicable press release to share with you. This fire is yet another reminder that we should not neglect to understand our fire insurance coverage and options. The California Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R.) issued the

Thomas C. Schultheis

following statement in response to California Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara’s request for the expedition of claims handling for California’s wildfire victims: “We are pleased that Insurance Commissioner Ricardo Lara has asked for insurance companies to expedite the claims process for wildfire victims so that they can begin the rebuilding and healing process and move forward with

environmental protection, and the like that we have been discussing ad nauseam. As of now, the opposite is true. Republicans rammed through tax cuts that have run up a $1 trillion dollar annual deficit. But the windfall went into corporation profits rather than into public spending programs that would have produced more productive workers and sustained growth. It meant that financial engineering has created a huge savings glut—both here and in Europe— that is driving down interest rates to zero or below. EU countries are so desperate to put their excess savings to work that they are willing to pay investors to use their savings with negative interest rates. The same could happen here if we don’t find a way to use those savings productively. This came out of so-called austerity measures in an overreaction to the Great Recession. Conservative ‘austerians,’ as they were called, worried more about budget deficits than investments that would stimulate more spending by domestic consumers and businesses that would

in turn boost future growth. This is what happens with the savings glut we have now. Too many policymakers and investors are obsessed with saving—in fact, hoarding wealth—rather than putting it to productive use that would lower public debt over the long term. Though it’s really rational financial behavior when individuals hold on to savings for a rainy day, that’s not the case for governments that won’t spend what’s needed for the future. It will bring on the rainy days sooner. Lord John Maynard Keynes knew it in the 1930s. He was the creator of Keynesian economics and a government that gave us the New Deal.

their lives,” said C.A.R. President Jeanne Radsick, a second-generation REALTOR® from Bakersfield. “With so many homes and businesses lost in the state’s recent fires, this move will provide affected communities with more immediate support in their time of need.” Commissioner Lara is asking insurance companies to provide greater flexibility to survivors affected by wildfires across the state with some deadlines and documentation typically required to pay claims, including:

groupings of personal property, such as clothing, shoes, books, or food items rather than listing individual items

• Minimum four-month advance payment of Loss of Use, Fair Rental Value, or Additional Living Expenses • Minimum 60-day billing grace period to allow for lost or destroyed renewal notices • Advance payment of at least 25 percent of policy limits for personal property — without the completion of an inventory • Accepting any inventory form that contains substantially the same information as a company-specific form • Accepting an inventory that includes

JFK ~ November 22, 1963

The Inconceivable Before

Through the immense and terrible echo of injustice a meadow bird sang and sang. —Joy Harjo Muscogee Creek Nation Poet Laureate of the United States

In the dark times Will there also be singing? Yes, there will be singing about the dark times. The master poet, such as Jane Hirshfield, can put everything there is in the smallest vessel: Red Scarf The red scarf still hangs over the chairback. In its folds like a perfume that cannot be quite remembered, inconceivable before. —for L.B. (1950-2004) from After (2006) Tomas Tranströmer (1931-2015), Nobel Laureate for Literature 2011, published 17 Poems in 1954, “enough to be recognized by many critics as the finest poet of his generation,” wrote Robert Bly. My first introduction to Tranströmer was Bly’s Friends, You Drank Some Darkness (1975), his translations from the Swedish of Harry Martinson, Gunnar Ekelöf, and Tranströmer. Side by side with W.S. Merwin (1927-2019), Antonio Machado (1875-1939) from Spain, and the Tang Dynasty Chinese, Tranströmer became my most important teacher at first encounter. This poem, and its muse, refigured my entire being along with its instrument of voice:

May there be many summer mornings when, with what pleasure, what joy, you enter harbors you’re seeing for the first time, may you stop at Phoenician trading stations to buy fine things, mother of pearl and coral, amber and ebony, sensual perfume of every kind— as many sensual perfumes as you can; and may you visit many Egyptian cities to learn and go on learning from their scholars. Keep Ithaka always in your mind. Arriving there is what you’re destined for. But don’t hurry the journey at all. Better if it lasts for years, so you’re old by the time you reach the island, wealthy with all you’ve gained on the way, not expecting Ithaka to make you rich.


OETRY SERVES US WELL DURING TIMES OF SHOCK AND GRIEF, like Jane Hirshfield’s blue-green curve of a vase’s shoulder, which holds whatever is placed within it—the living flower or the dead—with an equally tender balance and knows no difference between them. Reduced to pure grief, silent or wailing, normal speech falters. Today things seen become thoughts felt / this is where you Kennedy in the Oval Office, start forgetting the words—Meng July 1963 Hao-jan (691-740 c.e.). But he wrote that down—which leaves me thunderstruck by soul’s power to push the flower through a thousand yards of ash or ecstasy with poetry’s tongue. Bertolt Brecht (1898-1956):

Ithaka gave you the marvelous journey. Without her you wouldn’t have set out, she has nothing left to give you now.

President Kennedy in Fort Worth, Texas, on Friday morning, November 22, 1963, the day of his assassination.

And if you find her poor, Ithaka won’t have fooled you. Wise as you will have become, so full of experience, you’ll have understood by then what these Ithakas mean.


After A Death Once there was a shock that left behind a long, shimmering comet tail. It keeps us inside. It makes the TV pictures snowy. It settles in cold drops on the telephone wires. One can still go slowly on skis in the winter sun through brush where a few leaves hang on. They resemble pages torn from old telephone directories. Names swallowed by the cold. It is still beautiful to feel the heart beat but often the shadow seems more real than the body. The samurai looks insignificant beside his armor of black dragon scales. Bly writes that “the poem is surely some sort of brief masterpiece, and more moving than any poem written by an American on President Kennedy’s death. It is magnificent.” It is deeply poignant and tragic also in terms of Kennedy’s relationship to literature and poetry in particular. He was friends with Robert Frost, who predicted that he would one day be president, and Kennedy often quoted Frost’s famous lines from “Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening” in his stump speech—But I have promises to keep, / And miles to go before I sleep. Kennedy had asked Frost to compose a new poem for his inauguration but the old bard didn’t work that way and was thus asked to read his 1923 poem, “The Gift Outright,” a brief history of the American land ending, Such as she was, such as she would become. Kennedy requested that he alter the last line to—Such as she will become. At the eleventh hour, Frost did compose a new poem and we recall LBJ assisting him in holding paper to podium in the wind and glare but Frost, unable to see it, smoothly reciting “The Gift Outright” from memory with Kennedy’s edit. The circle was completed at the funeral of Jackie Onassis, leaving its forever opened doorway, when her long-time companion Maurice Templesman recited Greek-Egyptian C.P. Cavafy’s (1863-1933) “Ithaka.” Like her first husband, Madame Onassis was a devotee of poetry and Templesman perfectly crafted a moment of endless farewell and gratitude.

As you set out for Ithaka hope your road is a long one, full of adventure, full of discovery. Laistrygonians, Cyclops, angry Poseidon—don’t be afraid of them: you’ll never find things like that on your way as long as you keep your thoughts raised high, as long as a rare excitement stirs your spirit and your body. Laistrygonians, Cylops, wild Poseidon—you won’t encounter them unless you bring them along inside your soul, unless your soul sets them up in front of you. Hope your road is a long one.

Let’s do the Holidays!


HREE WILDLY CREATIVE WOMEN, Joellen Chrones, Kathy Badrak, and Toni Zybell, have come together to share their love of color and texture in Let’s do the Holidays!, an exhibition on view at The Lompoc Valley Art Association’s Cypress Gallery through December 29th. An artist’s reception is scheduled for Sunday, December 8th from 2 to 4pm. Refreshments will be served. Chrones has been working with glass for 19 years. “I fell in love with making glass objects when Birds by Joellen Chrones someone recommended that I make my own beads; I’ve been hooked ever since,” she shared. “I try to make functional pieces that people can put to good use. I like whimsical subjects, which include birds, vegetables, and flowers.” Badrak had a Stained Glass business for a number of years, where she did commission work and taught classes. In 2009, she attended a series of workshops on weaving baskets and working with gourds. She found that gourds were the perfect medium in which to express herself. “Gourd Art allows me to continue working with the wonderful fibers and weaving materials I use in my baskets. They allow me to add interesting textures to my work. My style continues to evolve as I learn and experiment with new techniques and materials,” she explained. Zybell did fused glass for about 20 years. After closing her studio in 2016, she was looking for her next creative journey. “I’ve always loved jewelry and Gourd by Kathy Badrak have wanted to make it since I was a little girl, the perfect time was now! I started with copper enamel, moved on to hammered metal and am now working with silver. My need to create combined with my love of jewelry has become a perfect marriage,” she added. The Cypress Gallery is located at 119 East Cypress Ave, Lompoc, across from the Museum. For more info visit www.lompocart.org

So Far So Fast To Open at 10 West Gallery


OCIAL CHANGE AND HOW WE GRASP IT motivated the soon to open exhibition So Far So Fast, at 10 West Gallery. “John Sollom’s work embodies the show title, but then I realized how many artists indirectly grapple with societal change and express their relationship with it in less direct ways,” said Jan Ziegler, 10 West Gallery Director. The show references how fast modern society has moved since the industrial revolution. With more people living in an urban environment than ever before, and they have ongoing contact with ever-changing influences throughout their lifetimes. According to Ziegler, each generation lives in a new world, growing up with little reference to the past beyond their living relatives. So Far So Fast includes the work of nine artists: John Sollom, Rick Doehring, Karin Aggeler, Penny Arntz, Iben G. Vestergaard, Mary 13 Windows, Acrylic on canvas by Rick Doehring Neville, Patrick McGinnis, Daniel Linz, with Patrick Hall ceramics. It also includes steel and fused glass reindeer sculptures by Larry Le Brane. The show and gallery will be open for the 1st Thursday art walk, on December 5th, from 5 to 8 pm.

Inner Space, Mixed media on canvas by Mary Neville

10 West Gallery is located at 10 W. Anapamu St and is open Tuesday to Saturday 11 to 5:30pm and Sunday and Monday noon to 5pm. Reach them at 805-770-7711. So Far So Fast, Mixed media assemblage on panel by John Sollom
