Veterans To Be Celebrated and Remembered

Small Business Saturday Set For November 30th


CELEBRATION OF SMALL BUSINESSES will take place at a block party on West Ortega Street Downtown Santa Barbara on Nov. 30th, the day after Black Friday, from 12 noon to 5 pm. Downtown shoppers will find festival tents filled with information, marketing specials along with lively music, tables, chairs for relaxing, and games, sponsored by Montecito Bank & Trust and the City of Santa Barbara. “We’re trying to get our community together to celebrate all of our fantastic small businesses,” says DSB Operations and Outreach Manager, Erik Krueger. “We want our downtown businesses to participate in as many ways as possible.” One of the new avenues of participation this year includes downtown restaurants’s “Sampling State” At 12:00 pm, restaurateurs are encouraged to step outside with samples of their fare. “Our goal with Sampling State is to engage restaurants, enabling each to offer small bites from their great menus with the hope of inspiring more patrons in the door, especially during the busy holiday season,” says Krueger. Some of the games will include Cornhole, Downtown Trivia, and Spin the Wheel, with prizes donated by businesses, and a festive atmosphere to discover or rediscover downtown businesses. “Stores, restaurants, galleries, all businesses are encouraged to supply any kind of marketing collateral they have – coupons, mini-menus, brochures, fliers, 2-for-1 offers – to display on the tables” says Krueger. Along with marketing pieces, businesses are invited and encouraged to provide a staff member at the block party to chat with downtown visitors. Holiday Horns has also been a welcomed tradition of the Small Business Saturday, this year, they will perform tunes of the season on Marshalls’ Patio (900 State Street, from 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm), enhancing shoppers/samplers experience by spreading the holiday spirit with their music. Another new aspect of this year’s event is the ability for businesses to host sidewalk sales, providing yet another opportunity for businesses to display their merchandise and engage with the public. Downtown Santa Barbara was awarded the title of ”Neighborhood Champion” by America Express in recognition of outstanding efforts to rally shoppers and small business owners in the community, because it has hosted Small Business Saturday in support of local businesses for the past six years. For Small Business Saturday business participation, contact Erik Krueger (via email at Erik@DowntownSB.org, or call 805-962-2098, ext 800). Downtown Santa Barbara serves as the champion and advocate for the merchants and property owners of the downtown district in Santa Barbara, California, with more than 1250 members.

Toys for Tots For the Holidays


HE SANTA BARBARA FIRE DEPARTMENT will be participating in the annual Holiday Toys for Tots drive by collecting toys and non-perishable food at each of their eight Fire Stations. The toy and food collection drive has already started and will end on Friday December 20th. Each station will have two collection boxes for new, unwrapped toys and store bought, new, unopened nonperishable food. Toys for Tots began in 1947, when Major Bill Hendricks, USCR and a group of Marine Reservists in Los Angeles collected and distributed 5,000 toys to needy children. The 1947 pilot project was so successful that the Marine Corps adopted Toys for Tots in 1948 and expanded it into a nationwide campaign. That year, Marine Corps Reserve units across the nation conducted Toys for Tots campaigns in each community in which a Marine Reserve Center was located. Marines have conducted successful nationwide campaigns at Christmas each year since 1948. This year all toys and food collected will be distributed by the Unity Shoppe. Toys can be dropped off anytime between 9am and 5pm, seven days a week at any of the Santa Barbara City Fire Stations located at: Station 1, 121 W. Carrillo Street; Station 2, 819 Cacique Street; Station 3, 415 E. Sola Street; Station 4, 19 N. Ontare; Station 5, 2505 Modoc; Station 6, 1802 Cliff Drive; Station 7, 2411 Stanwood Drive; Station 8, 40 Hartley Place; Please call 805-564-5711, for more information.

Making full use of the Granada Theatre’s state of the Madama Butterfly is a many-tiered and art projection system, Chapman gave the audience carefully constructed verismo polemic on child back screen “moving art” projections of Nagasaki abuse, emotional and psychological abandonment, Harbor, with discreet but fascinating animated xenophobia, and the consecration of American actions to enhance the opera’s already intriguing imperialism and military might the whole world stagecraft; a passing junk, changing seasons, and witnessed at the turn of the last century when Teddy finally, sepulchral storm clouds and apocalyptic Roosevelt’s Great White Fleet - referenced several visual portent - Butterfly’s culturally inescapable times in the libretto - circumnavigated the planet from 1907 to 1911 including a stop in Santa Barbara, suicide.

Stage Director Octavio Cardenas moved his characters about the three-tiered set and its superbly efficient pairs of giant scene-changing shoji screens with the mastery of a miniaturist.

period costume authenticity circa 1904 including Kate Pinkerton’s magnificent day dress and Goro’s half Western, Pinkerton facing Geishas and CIo-Cio San half Nipponese business suit. Cardenas handled the on- stage movement in the chorus scenes with quiet authority. Distracting piffle minimalized, unobstructed choral singing was the satisfying musical result. Speaking of musical results, Protopapas gathered an ensemble cast of extraordinary vocal power, musicality, and dramatic savvy for this Opera Santa Barbara production of Butterfly. George Kostantinow, Eleni Calenos (Cio-Cio San); Kostis Soprano Eleni Calenos (Cio-Cio San/Madama Protopapas, Conductor and Chorus Master; and Helene Segal Butterfly) commanded attention immediately for her enormous and carefully nuanced vocal prowess. Gifted with a superb and open high register, her intelligently defiant interpretation of the ill-starred title role was a brilliant and calibrated progression from the character’s 15-year old emotional naiveté to her final defeat as a mature mother some years later; forced to surrender her child to strangers. Tenor Harold Meers (U.S. Navy Lieutenant Benjamin Franklin Opera SB Board Member Susan and Palmer Pinkerton) awed with his magnificently resonant Eric Small with Joan Jackson Jr, Opera SB voice and well considered dramatic realization Rutkowski, Board Chair Executive Chairmain of one of Puccini’s most complex and conflicted characters. Baritone Luis Alejandro Orozco (Sharpless, United States consul at Nagasaki) displayed a voice of commanding richness and vibrant color and gave his character a touching glimmer of empathy. Tenor Benjamin Brecher (Goro, a matchmaker) sang the difficult role with vocal clarity and elevated the role from its too often superficial use as comedic relief to one of social and cultural consciousness. In Brecher’s interpretation Goro knows the ways of the world sadly and well. Christina and Colin Ramsey; Nina Dunbar, OSB Staff; Rosalie Mezzo-soprano Audrey Babcock (Suzuki, Alspay; Bri Sarikaogu; Harold Meers “Pinkerton”; and Julia Butterfly’s maid); bass Colin Ramsey Metzler. Front: Audrey Babcock “Suzuki” and Luna Sofia Majzllin (Sorrow understudy) (The Bonze, Cio-Cio-San’s uncle); bass John Allen Nelson (The Imperial Commissioner), and mezzo-soprano Julia Metzler (Kate Pinkerton) gave solid performances vocally and dramatically.

Beverley Jackson, Special to VOICE

AMOUS BRITISH 1970’S FASHION DESIGNER Zandra Rhodes has had a period of living quietly in San Diego where she was commissioned to design the costumes for San Diego Opera’s 2001 Magic Flute. She stayed on to do many other operas, but now she is back in the international fashion news again. It has always been fashion designing that she was known for. Well, for that and her outrageous attire and wild color hair. Her hair was screaming red one day and the next day bright purple. In the late 1970’s, she was creating clothes with safety pins and holes in the cloth and all those things that were considered chic punk. These days it’s Dame Zandra Rhodes, DBE, not the Princess of Punk from days of old. The Fashion and Textile Museum in London hosted a solo retrospective of her work. Dame Zandra was called on to design for many of the famous stars of her era, and Princess Diana was a favored client. The very colorful late Viscountess Bubbles Harmsworth was one of Zandra’s best clients at wearing her wildest creations as well as Zandra Rhodes and Sir Peter Osborne party in the lovely floating full length gowns of wondrous my London mews patterned silk chiffon she designed. It was Bubbles who introduced me to Zandra originally. She had the wild, fun flair to carry off Zandra’s clothes. Going out for an evening with Bubbles in her Zandra creation meant she’d arrive to pick me up in her chauffeur driven Bentley with three or four handsome young men and enough cold champagne to last a week. We’d really do the town. And it was not unusual to end the evening at almost morning eating fish and chips in newspaper cones in the back seat of the Bentley. She started as a young starlet. Her second husband was Vere Harmsworth, later Lord Rothermere. They had homes in London, New York, Paris, Beverly Hills, and Jamaica. And Bubbles created fun wherever she went. It was said she was as essential to a London party as champagne and canapés. Even a simple ladies luncheon at her home in Beverly Hills was not the usual. For one thing you dined at a table beneath her circus tent type ceiling draped in wild printed chintz. Definitely not the elegant, English antique-filled type of room you’d expect to find in the home of the wife of the Viscount Rothermere. Jackie Onassis and Elizabeth Taylor were two other famous women who wore Zandra Rhodes, but they opted for the beautiful jeweled or patterned floaty chiffons. Bubbles’ extreme fashions were not for them. Interestingly, although Bubbles was very thin in her younger days, the weight went on with the years. But she never tried to hide it. She just wore fuller, wilder patterned dresses, usually by her friend Zandra. Zandra was at the height of her fame during the years I rented my mews in Belgravia, spring and fall. She was a frequent guest at my parties there. And I had the joy of attending soirées at her London home, as well as going with her to fun fashion shows and movies. One dinner party of mine I’d like to forget, she arrived in a superb floor length gown of beautifully beaded layers and layers of white silk chiffon. One of her dinner partners had drunk more than he should and spilled an almost full glass of red Bordeaux from Chateau Mouton Rothschild all over her. She was very gracious about it, but for me it ruined the party. That beautiful gown, worth at least $10,000 retail was ruined forever. Zandra Rhodes gown Zandra is not only back designing clothing for several companies today, she’s also doing an interiors collection for IKEA, has a book coming out, and has an At Zandras London home. We were atelier in London. Liberty of London will be another source playing with her many wigs and a of Zandra Rhodes creations. Celebrating her 50th year in caricature of her. fashion she is a very busy lady. And most importantly, she was recently summoned to Buckingham Palace to be made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth. Beverley Jackson moved to SB in 1963 from Los Angeles. She wrote a social column for the SB News-Press from 1968-1992. She also wrote the award winning book Splendid Slippers on Chinese footbinding and five other books on China. She latest book is Dolls of Spain. Jackson is avid doll collector and a collector of interesting people. She is also now seriously making and exhibiting pine needle baskets and collage.

National Championships In Our Own “Backyard”


’M WONDERING IF YOU NOTICED LAST WEEKEND’S EXCITEMENT on the waters adjacent to the Santa Barbara Harbor. I surely did! The views from the breakwater and from Stearns Wharf must have been spectacular, because from my perch on the sun drenched deck of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club, I was lucky enough to have a bird’s eye view of the entire scene. The Yacht Club and the UCSB Sailing Team hosted the 2019 Cressy High School Singlehanded National Championship featuring 36 highschool champions. You heard it here, these are national champions! Young sailors, winners from all over the United States, who qualified for this one sailor per boat championship racing in our own coastal waters! How’s that for a special occasion? And, it gets even better! For those of you who missed last weekend’s awesome race, next weekend on November 9th and 10th – about the time you read this – the country’s top college sailors will be participating in the Intercollegiate Sailing Association Singlehanded National Championships starting at 11am. As far as I’ve heard, the weather should be as spectacular as it was last weekend, so this might be an occasion to view a truly exciting and fun race. Sailors have come from all corners of the country to compete off the coast of Santa Barbara. Sailing in both college and high school is comprised of seven regional districts from which the competitors will have previously qualified. Competitors are racing in two divisions of singlehanded Laser class sailboats provided by regatta sponsor LaserPerformance, the world’s largest producer of small sailboats and a huge promoter and sailing supporter. For last weekend’s high school regatta, larger sailors, over 170 lbs on average, sailed the Laser Standard, while smaller sailors, typically 145 to 165lbs, sailed the boats in Laser Radial configuration. For next


Harbor VOICE weekend’s college event, women will sail the Laser Radial and men will sail the Laser Standard, also commonly referred to as the “full rig.” Staff Commodore and Regatta Chair Kent Piece is proud to be hosting this national championship event on behalf of SBYC, the second oldest yacht club on the West Coast, devoted to promoting boating activities in and outside of the Santa Barbara community. Brad Schaupeter, the Yacht Club’s Racing Director and UCSB Head Sailing Coach explained, “Our entire sailing community is excited about the opportunity to host these events. It’s not every day that we have national championships in our own backyard, and it will be fun to share what a special sailing venue Santa Barbara is with young sailors, their coaches, and parents.” Schaupeter noted that few people are aware that UCSB is one of only two programs west of the Mississippi that compete at the most elite level of college sailing and one of very few non-varsity programs with this type of competitive success. He also observed that the race is an opportunity to showcase UCSB and the UCSB Sailing Team as high school sailors are thinking about applying to college. I think I know where I’ll be on Saturday and Sunday… back on the deck of the Yacht Club to watch the college competitors in their streamlined Lazer boats. What fun! While there, I’m definitely not going to miss the new exhibit at the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, Fishing with Paper & Ink, featuring the work of two outstanding nature printing artists, Eric Hochberg and Dwight Hwang, with their images of West Coast species of fishes and other marine animals. I’ll report on that very soon so stay tuned... Photos courtesy of the Yacht Club

Why Today’s Irrational Exuberance? By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE


ED CHAIRMAN ALAN GREENSPAN ASKED in a memorable 1996 speech, “How do we know when irrational exuberance has unduly escalated asset values, which then become subject to unexpected and prolonged contractions as they have in Japan over the past decade?” He was talking about the penchant for investors to act irrationally in ignoring very high stock valuations accompanying very low interest rates that could slow a stock market, and maybe the overall economy, about to enter a down cycle. Does that sound familiar? Today we have the S&P index of 500 top stocks with a price-to-earning ratio above 18— i.e., its price is 18 times annual earnings, after expenses (EBITDA---earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortization) when the historical longterm P/E earnings ratio is 15, according to Nobel economist Robert Shiller in his 2000 best-seller, Irrational Exuberance; and which increases the odds of a recession. For instance, the irrational behavior that Greenspan was warning about wasn’t manifested until the Dot-com bubble bust of 2000, and following the 2001 recession, when the P/E ratio reached 44 times earnings. In other words, stock prices were way out of whack with earnings that had been declining—so much so that stock prices had flattened and corporations were barely issuing any dividends at all—a sign that their earnings were depressed. And what depresses an economy more than depressed corporate earnings, which then depresses job formation, consumer incomes, and overall economic growth? Professor Shiller in

his book gave the 100-year history of stock market P/Es. The last time it had reached great heights was in 1929, at the beginning of the Great Depression. So irrational exuberance is something to worry about when looking at stock valuations. We are in similar, but not identical circumstances today. Forbes Magazine puts the S&P P/E ratio at 18, noting,“On a cautionary note related to the earnings skid, the S&P 500’s price-to-earnings ratio has been on the rise and now stands near 18 times projected earnings over the next twelve months. That’s way above the 14 level where we started the year, and it exceeds the long-term average of around 16. Remember, it’s harder to grow the “P” side of that equation when the “E” side is on the decline.” Why such irrational exuberance today, after history tells us what happens when investors act irrationally in the face of reality? Professor Shiller explained it thusly in a recent op-ed in Britain’s The Guardian newspaper, “(President) Trump has for decades touted a glamorous narrative of his life by surrounding himself with apparently adoring beautiful women, and maintaining the appearance of vast influence. The end of confidence in Trump’s narrative is likely to be associated with a recession.” Shiller goes much deeper

into human behavior in Irrational Exuberance. Human beings have a natural inclination to listen to hearsay and word-of-mouth stories when they make financial decisions, such as buying a home, or stocks. This is in part because of the complexity of modern financial markets, but also because such research is difficult and requires some expertise. The busted housing bubble is the best example of such irrational exuberance, when consumers believed that housing prices could never fall, because they hadn’t in modern history— at least since WWII—so they kept elevating housing prices with the aid of so-called liar loans, because interest rates had fallen far below inflation rates at the time. Inflation was so far above interest rates that there was a zero cost to borrowing mortgages, in particular, since rising inflation devalued loan principal faster than the actual loan payments over a 15 or 30-year mortgage. This could happen again today, in other words. Although corporate profits are still at record highs, they may have already begun their descent to more historical levels, and maybe even lower, if consumers become disillusioned with the Trump ‘success’ narrative, as Professor Shiller has said.

A Step in the Right Direction By Thomas C. Schultheis / Special to VOICE


APPY NOVEMBER TO ALL! I’m sharing the information below so that you can become a little more informed about what California has in mind for Accessory Dwelling Units (ADUs). These laws are a step in the right direction when it comes to creating more dwelling units, addressing the affordability crisis, and legalizing existing rental units throughout the state. The summary below is compliments of Californians for Homeownership. This 501(c)(3) non-profit organization works to address California’s housing crisis by enforcing these laws and fighting unlawful policies that limit access to housing affordable for families at all income levels. On January 1, 2020, it will become easier than ever to build Accessory Dwelling Units in California, thanks to

ADUs eligible for this automatic approval include: • An ADU converted from existing space in the home or another structure (e.g., a garage), so long as the ADU can be accessed from the exterior and has setbacks sufficient for fire safety. • A new detached ADU that is no larger than 800 sqft, has a maximum height of 16 feet, and has rear and side setbacks of 4 feet.

Even if not subject to automatic approval, a city generally must approve any attached or detached ADU under 1,200 sqft unless the city adopts a new ADU ordinance setting local development standards for ADUs. If a city adopts such an ordinance, it must abide by the following restrictions: • No minimum lot size requirements. • No maximum unit size limit under 850 sqft (or 1,000 sqft for a two-bedroom ADU). • No required replacement parking when a parking garage is converted into an ADU. • No required parking for an ADU created through the conversion of existing space or located within a half-mile walking distance of a bus stop or transit station. • If the city imposes a floor area ratio limitation or similar rule, the limit must be designed to allow the development of at least one 800 sqft attached or detached ADU on every lot.

Adding Units to Multifamily Properties For the first time, the new laws allow units to be added to multifamily buildings. Cities must permit these types of units in multifamily buildings without applying any local development standards: • New units within the existing non-living space of a building (e.g., storage rooms, basements, or garages). At least one unit and up to ¼ of the existing unit count may be created this way. • Two new homes on the same lot as the multifamily building but detached from it, with 4-foot side and rear setbacks and a 16-foot maximum height. For more information you can visit: www.caforhomes.org/aduupdate

Please be advised that while these laws are planned to go into effect in 2020, there are many issues that need to be addressed to actually implement these laws. It would not be a surprise to me if many cities across the state are not able to seamlessly integrate these laws into current housing policy immediately. *Data prepared by the California Association of REALTORS.
