HEN THE POWER OF SYMPHONIC MUSIC converges with nature and community, renewal and rebirth is possible. And that’s exactly what the Santa Barbara Symphony invites its audience to experience at Beethoven in Bloom on Saturday, February 19th at 7:30pm and Sunday, February 20th at 3pm at The Granada Theatre. In partnership with the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, and with support from One805, the Santa Barbara Symphony is creating unique ways to help the community continue to heal after the devastation of the Thomas Fire, Montecito Debris Flow, and COVID pandemic. Its Beethoven in Bloom concert features a unique multimedia work by Emmy® Award-winning composer Jeff Beal, which was inspired by the devastation and rebirth resulting from the Thomas Fire and the Montecito Debris Flow. A video accompanying the Symphony features images from the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. Complimentary tickets are available for First Responders.

This healing and nature-themed performance will also include Santa Barbara Symphony’s Principal Harpist Michelle Temple shining on stage in a performance of renowned composer Jennifer Higdon’s Grammy-award winning Harp Concerto, and Beethoven’s most thematic work Pastorale, inspired by his long walks in the Vienna Woods.

“It is an honor to present such a dynamic program featuring two amazingly talented American contemporary composers,” shared Nir Kabaretti, Music Composer Jeff Beal and Artistic Director of the Santa Barbara Symphony. “We are also excited about our artistic partnership with the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, whose restoration work on the land on which Jeff Beal’s piece depicts, is Propelling this tribute to those impacted by the extraordinary, Thomas Fire and Montecito Debris Flow, images and adds such from the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden will be dimension and used in conjunction with the musical performance to illustrate the damage to the environment and emotion to the the recovery process. presentation. This provides such losing his home in the Thomas a unique way for audiences to Fire. When Beal experienced the further connect with not only the devastation felt by neighbors and music but with nature and the communities from Los Angeles Santa Barbara community as a to Santa Barbara, he became whole.” inspired. “It is a piece about the complexity of our dance with Santa Barbara Botanic Garden — Renewing our Landscape our natural environment, i.e. the power of nature to both destroy After a fire, erosion and and regenerate itself,” he shared. invasive species may prevent This composition depicts nature’s primal elements and enduring power to survive. It includes a visual narrative incorporating images of the devastation, the heroism of First Responders, and new

landscapes from recovering. Knowing where these problems occur can help land managers pinpoint the most effective restoration interventions. The Santa Barbara Botanic Garden has been surveying post-fire conditions in the Thomas and Whittier Fire Scars with the help of over 100 volunteer community scientists. In 2020 and 2021, while hiking

over 280 net miles of fire-scarred roads and trails, volunteers and staff watched the landscape as it recovered. Using their smartphones, surveyors collected data about the erosion, invasive species, and rare plants they encountered. This information is being used to identify where future fire restoration efforts will be most beneficial and provide insight on how local habitats naturally recover after a fire. “We are excited to partner with The Symphony to showcase the regenerative power of native plants and their impact on our lives here in Santa Barbara – and beyond. Through Mr. Beal’s music and the Garden’s imagery, we hope to bring a love of the natural world to a whole new audience,” said Steve Windhager, Executive Director of Santa Barbara Botanic Garden.“We’re also thrilled to promote an appreciation of the Symphony to our members and guests right here in the Garden in the season ahead.” ONE 805 — Renewing our Community Support

Unfortunately, wildfires and other natural disasters are on the rise, but local First Responder budgets are not. In the aftermath of the fire and debris flows, One805 was created to show how much First Responders’ efforts were appreciated and to ensure they’re supported with the latest equipment, effective wellness programs, and topnotch community disaster preparedness in future times of need. It is the only organization providing help to all three of Santa Barbara County’s First Responder groups — Fire, Police, and Sheriff. One805 is a permanent 501(c)(3) corporation with the 2022 Platinum Seal of Transparency from Candid. Unique to One805, its Advisory Council consists of all of the County First Responder Department Chiefs, allowing them to do what other organizations cannot — respond instantly and direct funds to where they are most urgently needed. As we remember the past and prepare for the future, One805 is once again showing its appreciation for those who are always there for us. They have invited all local First Responders to attend Beethoven in Bloom as guests of The Symphony. You too can show your support by n visiting One805.org.

FTER 14 YEARS OF COMMITTED SERVICE, Lynda Tanner, RN, MSN will retire this week from her role as President and CEO for VNA Health. She will be succeeded by Kieran Shah, CHPCA, who is a nationally recognized leader in the fields of advanced illness care operations and patient access. Tanner joined VNA Health in 2008, initially acting as COO before assuming the role of President and CEO in 2010. In the following decade, she ensured that the organization continued to meet the community’s needs by leading multiple crucial projects. “It has been an honor for me to work with such an amazing and passionate team,” said Tanner. “Together we have worked diligently to deliver on our agency’s legacy of trusted and compassionate care. It has been a remarkable journey of transformation and growth. We built and opened Serenity House, pressed for legislative change to utilize all the beds in Serenity House, expanded our home health and hospice services, established a Medicare licensed branch office in Santa Ynez Valley, and created a strong culture of safety to sustain the continuity of care through any crises. I am so proud that VNA Health is well prepared to thrive.” Shah was selected to serve as the new Lynda Tanner President and CEO after a comprehensive search conducted by the VNA Health Board of Directors. Most recently, he served as the Chief Growth Officer with Capital Caring Health. Shah has also worked as the Chief Strategy Officer with the California Hospice Network and Hospice of Santa Cruz County, and was the End-of-Life Care Thought Leader for the Santa Clara County LTSS Integration Subcommittee, an advisory group to the County Board of Supervisors. He lives in Santa Kieran Shah Barbara with his wife, Coriander. Learn more at www.vna.health

FFORTS TO OFFER THE COMMUNITY ACCESS TO DESALINATED WATER CONTINUE with over 1,650 feet of Desal Link pipeline having been installed on the first three blocks of Garden St. between Mission and Valerio Streets. Now, after facing delays from large boulders and historic trolly tracks under the streets, construction will continue down Garden St. toward Alameda Park. Ultimately, the project will establish a new underground desalination pipeline between the Charles E. Meyer Desalination Plant and water mains connected to the Cater Water Treatment Plant. Construction is expected to take place between mid-February and March, with most construction taking place between 7am to 5pm. Local roads will be accessible, but three block sections will be closed during active construction periods.

ACKLING THEMES OF SELF-LOVE IN AN ORIGINAL MANNER, Her and I follows Angela, who discovers that her vagina can speak after a mediocre sexual experience. As the story progresses, Angela develops a relationship with “Her” through her Film still from Her and I struggles with personal issues such as self-image and care. Directed by fourth-year UC Santa Barbara student Stephanie Marin, the film will be shown at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Marin applied to the 10-10-10 Program to channel her passion into a creative endeavor, pursue her dreams, and force herself out of her comfort zone. When she read the Her and I script, she knew that this project would be difficult to capture on film.

ET AMIDST THE 2008 FINANCIAL CRISIS, Downsized follows the personal struggle of one investment firm employee who is confronted with the difficult task of firing a coworker by the end of the day. Written, directed, and produced by third-year UC Santa Barbara student Justin Usami, the film will be screened at the 37th Santa Barbara International Film Festival. “My father inspired this film,” explained Usami. “I watched him struggle with the immense responsibility of keeping his company afloat during the recession in Japan after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami. I really respect my father and wanted to tell a story about that burden of being in control of somebody else’s career and livelihood. There doesn’t seem to be a ‘right decision’ in that circumstance, and I wanted to explore that circumstance.”

“I was willing to take on the challenge and bring a fun and light-hearted twist to a story that would resonate with a lot of young people,” said Marin. “And, as someone who mainly worked as a production designer in past Director Stephanie Marin SBIFF’s 10-10-10 Screenwriting and Filmmaking Mentorship film projects, I saw Her and and Competition provides local high school and college I as a perfect opportunity students the opportunity to create their own films and be mentored by professionals. Learn more at www.sbiff.org to showcase the knowledge I have gained while also getting to step into a role I have never been in before.” Marin’s favorite aspect of the process was collaborating with her peers both on and off the film set. The overall experience has reaffirmed her decision to work in the film industry.

After moving to America in 2018, Usami Filmmaker Justin Usami was inspired to apply to the 10-10-10 Program upon attending the 2019 students’ film screenings. Now, as a participant, he has most enjoyed the opportunities to learn from and work alongside talented mentors and colleagues. Currently, Usami works in the film industry in grip and electric departments. He ultimately hopes to create a miniseries about the 442nd Japanese-American regimental combat team who fought in Italy during World War II.

ANTA BARBARA GOT A TRIPLE PLAY WALLOP OF LIVE MUSIC last week, like a delayed welcome mat to the mercurial nature of live music during COVID-time. Of course, masks and protocols were out in full force, but spirits were duly raised by the prospect of return performances from handsome violin virtuoso Joshua Bell and Wynton Marsalis’ Jazz at Lincoln Center at the Granada on Thursday and Friday, with the Brubeck Brothers Quartet at the Lobero on Saturday, replete with a show-stealing multi-media show celebrating their celebrated late father Dave’s centennial year. Interestingly, as disparate as these events were, they had in common a certain archetypal condition: these are high-

Following the cathartic ecstasy of hearing Elizabeth Ogonek’s Cloudline, in a U.S. Premiere performance by the LA Phil at the Granada a week earlier, Bell’s recital, with bold pianist partner Peter Dugan, both expectedly wowed and, for some of us, disappointed. The token 20th century item on the menu was the thrilling perpetual motion machinery of Ravel’s Violin Sonata No. 2, on a program with beautifullybut-safely played Schubert, Beethoven, a Chopin encore, and a take on Bach’s famed Chaconne in D Minor which seemed to run its objective Baroque splendor through a Romantic’s goopy filter. Bell is one of America’s best-known and most marketable violin virtuosos, but his approach hardly represents America’s forward-thinking or rebel impulses.

The Series head, Robert Cassidy, and John Churchwell will play piano, accompanying soprano Esther Tonea and tenor Victor Cardamone when they perform Love Songs and Dances: An Evening of Liebeslieder. No doubt, love will be in the air, and notes.

805-ers are lucky to have had regular access to the thrill of hearing Marsalis’ JALC big band live, via an abiding connection to UCSB Arts & Lectures. In the grim hazy days of 2020, Wynton and Co. visited our living rooms with a live-streamed performance of his new The Democracy! Suite. Last Friday, the band’s Granada set settled back (if “settled back” is an apt term for this energetic and highly musical ensemble’s handiwork) into the group’s vast and expanding songbook. We got inventive arrangements of music by Thelonious Monk, the recently belated Chick Corea, Sonny Rollins and Charles McPherson, and a taste of Stevie Wonder, through Vincent Gardner’s intriguing and almost Count Basie-esque chart on Smile Please. Intricate choreography of moving parts in the band, coated in deep swing, is a hallmark of JALC’s work and sound, out of which rise successions of bold solos. On this night, the

soloing highlights were supplied by Wynton himself on the first tune and a clowning mute-playful trumpet solo by Kenny Rampton followed by truly wise and gorgeous tenor sax turn by twenty-something Julian Lee (Marsalis beamed after the tune, telling Lee “keep the grown folk’s tempo alive!”) Trumpeter Marcus Printup also dazzled, musically, with his solo on his arrangement of McPherson’s Nightfall. In all, there was much to admire in the one-set outing, as usual. Still, it’s hard not to reflect on the suit-jacketed straightness of Marsalis’ mothership enterprise. This is the flagship jazz big band in America, but its product remains less musically challenging than work done by such underrepresented big band thinkers as Maria Schneider, Vince Mendoza, any number of European/Scandinavian big bands, and inspired newcomer Miho Hazawa (whose new big band music was a sensation of last fall’s Monterey Jazz Festival).

A Very Good Year For Kristen Stewart By Robert F. Adams, Special to VOICE Kristen Stewart responds to a question

NE OF HOLLYWOOD’S MOST EXCITING YOUNG ACTRESSES, Kristen Stewart made a finely-tuned appearance at an event organized by the Cinema Society of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Stewart plays the beloved Princess Diana, in a kind of surreal nightmare of a fairy tale in the movie Spencer (Diana’s maiden name). The film was directed by Pablo Larraín, who previously directed Jackie with a tight-knit intimate crew. For her energetic, physically compelling and edge-of-emotion work, she received the Best Actress Award as well as standing ovations at the Venice Film Festival and critic’s plaudits at the Telluride Film Festival in Colorado last fall. Plus she is nominated for a Golden Globe, Critic’s Choice, and Oscar Best Actress awards. The onstage interview on January 30th, after

a screening at the Riviera Theater, was expertly moderated by Executive Director Roger Durling. Stewart was self-effacing, and freshly reactive to the perceptive questions. In speaking about working with the director she stated, “With the sound of his voice, I said ‘I will follow you anywhere’ and we will touch nothing anyone has seen before, like a poem, and in the film we reach for everything we know about her, like a dream. The script was substantial and bolstered the ideas.” She further added, “I had to tear through lots of research, and try to transmute, absorb her, and love her.” On working with the remarkable cinematographer Claire Mathon (Portrait of A Lady on Fire), she shared, “Claire is a shy person, she uses the camera to get close to you, she doesn’t have a massive ego. The camera penetrated the personal space and a wide-angle lens was used, a little like how Son of Saul was

shot. I feel like you are her and observe her up close. The intent was the most intimate I ever felt; a really nice feeling, where I could not hide from the cinematographer. That’s her. Princess Diana looks like she’s going to crumble. To be big and so small, it is so rare. She is not to be messed with when the kids are around.” Referring to an especially challenging sequence, Stewart related, “For the pearl necklace sequence, it was like a nightmare, and the director pushed it to the extent he did... I was chewing on pearl M&Ms, and the scene goes on and on… It was so surreal. It was a commitment to a nightmare, and Pablo (visualized it, like poetry. In the scene it was like her f##king head was exploding. She wasn’t allowed to talk, she was muzzled to the most crazy extent and she was stripped of any chance to develop. She screamed inside, and her hands spoke more.” She recollected, “Onscreen it’s both of us,

really. [It's] something that I was holding that was hers, but, mine too.” She concluded, “playing the role was such a joy, every single day I was elated to come so close to something so bright and the character made me feel great, but she was sad. But she was able to make you feel better about yourself.” Her talk was greeted enthusiastically by the full-house. Afterward, a reception was held on a rooftop terrace at the El Encanto Hotel, one of the Festival sponsors, where she interacted with supporters as well as young film students. Stewart is gracious and has a lively personality. She will deservedly receive the Festival’s American Riviera Award for her work in Spencer on Friday, March 4 at 8pm, in an event moderated by the veteran film journalist Anne Thompson – an event and evening not to be missed. Spencer is a dark portrait of psychological trauma within the walls of a British Royal palace, Sandringham House, during the holiday season of 1991. Stewart is mostly a non-verbal actress and her physicality approach to the role is stunning. She demonstrates her own way of embodying the character. Her performance is not so much powered by an uncanny resemblance, but by the taut emotional quality that is subtle and effective. She is an actress that has grown by leaps and bounds since the Twilight series about teen vampires and werewolves. She has been taking roles in mostly independent films such as Personal Shopper in 2016 and The Clouds of Sils Maria in 2014, both directed by French Director Olivier Assayas as well as a challenging role in Seberg, a biographical film about actress Jean Seberg from 2019.

Proven Marketing Strategies:

Helping Businesses Share Their Stories By Daisy Scott / VOICE

E

NSURING COMPANIES CAN AUTHENTICALLY AND EFFECTIVELY COMMUNICATE WITH THEIR PEERS, Keith Yeager understands how to meet today’s unique marketing needs. The President and CEO of Montecitobased Proven Marketing Strategies, he operates with the benefit of nine years of experience working with businesses across a diverse range of fields. Today, he remains just as determined in his mission to support all businesses big and small as when he embarked on the business.

Photo by Daisy Scott

“The heart is, what’s your mission statement?” shared Yeager. “It’s about the journey, and what’s your journey as the owner of this company? Once we go ahead and understand your journey, then we can start understanding how we can get that mission out.”

President and CEO Keith Yeager

Yeager came to the marketing field by way of Hollywood, originally working for film producers and as a production manager. Later, as a producer for commercials with KADYTV, he grew familiar with the Central Coast and learned more about the marketing needs of small businesses. It was this knowledge, combined with his desire to support business people in a meaningful way, that inspired him to launch his own marketing company: Proven Marketing Strategies.

As President and CEO, Yeager spearheads the efforts for each client, subcontracting additional people as needed. He works with all types of businesses and nonprofits regardless of size, scope, or field, with past clients including Fortune 500 companies, lawyers in Manhattan Beach, a Lompoc pastor, and a Santa Barbara psychologist. This allows Yeager to offer truly personalized marketing assistance, including conducting market research on trends, social media campaigns, database development, focus groups, and reaction testing. Through it all, he focuses on ensuring that his clients use the best possible keywords that both reflect his clients’ goals and will be picked up by social media and website algorithms. He also offers support with other forms of marketing such as television and print. “I don’t offer one-size-fits-all solutions,” said Yeager, “I work with owners and managers to find out what they need, what their questions are, and what their goals and dreams are.” A firm believer in giving back, Yeager is also an active community member, supporting organizations promoting children’s education and recently working with government stakeholders in Carpinteria. “I strive to build relationships such that all clients feel respected, heard, and empowered,” said Yeager. “Even if we only meet for coffee and you never engage my services, I hope that you walk away from that time feeling good about our time together. And obviously, I want all of my clients to succeed. And success for some is about improving the bottom line, while success for others means feeling like they’ve contributed to a general sense of ‘good’ for the community. All stakeholders must have a voice.” Proven Marketing Strategies is located at 1470 East Valley Rd. It is open 9am to 5pm Mondays-Fridays • To learn more, visit www.psm3.co

Harbor VOICE From Waves to Cement to Snow

T

By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

Photos by Sigrid Toye

HE 2022 WINTER OLYMPICS IN FAR-OFF CHINA HAS ME HOOKED! I use the word “winter” loosely as apparently there’s no snow in and around Beijing! The outdoor skiing and snowboarding events are taking place on manufactured snow framed by mountains the color of a grizzly bear. These athletes are spectacular considering the conditions: icy snow runs, mountaintop gale winds, and a temperamental snow pack. The most mesmerizing outdoor event (so far) was last Saturday’s Women’s Slopestyle snowboarding. All I can say is Wow and WOW! Snowboarding isn’t an event seen in palm tree-laden Santa Barbara... or is it? It doesn’t take Professor Google to reveal that snowboarding’s great-grandparents are actually surfing and the equally challenging skateboarding seen here in Santa Barbara every single day. California has the honor of being skateboarding’s home state, thanks to the surfing culture that exists up and down its coastlines. The sport now known as skateboarding was born in the 1950’s when California surfers wanted something to surf when waves were flat. “Sidewalk surfing,” as it was called at the time, caught on like a fast moving wildfire, spreading throughout beach communities. The first skateboards were nothing more than wooden boxes or boards with roller skate wheels attached, but they became so popular that companies soon appeared building skateboards similar to those seen today. The demand was so great that by 1963 over 50 million skateboards had been sold! In 1972, a young surfer named Frank Nasworthy came up with the idea of using wheels made of soft polyurethane that gripped the ground: serious injuries were curtailed as the result of falling on oil covered streets and slick surfaces. Thanks to the polyurethane wheels, a new generation of skateboarders emerged to safely jump in the air with a skateboard seemingly attached to their feet. Aided by California’s drought of 1976, skateboarders started skating in neighborhood swimming pools drained to save water. Skating down and up the side of a pool ending with an 180 degree flip in the air gave rise to high flying aerial maneuvers such as the ones I saw last weekend watching those amazing snowboarders. Quite a journey from ocean to snow, wouldn’t you agree? Inspired by the Olympics, I decided to visit Daniel Nungaray the closest thing to that here in Santa Barbara, the skateboard park along Cabrillo Boulevard. When I first arrived, smaller children were practicing with their boards, scooters, and skates, cautiously trying new tricks with occasional falls and missteps. Soon teens began to arrive along with a few older people (in their late 20’s!), most on boards, but some on rollerblades, whose talents indicated that this wasn’t their first rodeo. I watched in awe as they practiced,

trying to capture on camera the aerial maneuvers I was observing – and not doing a very good job! Taking a rest with his skateboard under his foot, Daniel Nungaray, one of the most enthusiastic skateboarders, told me about his interest in the sport. “I’ve been skateboarding since... well, forever. This is a great place to come to see my buddies and practice. I love this sport!” he related. He pointed out a friend who was doing some serious maneuvers, much like a surfer going up and down an ocean wave on a really good day, another reminder of its surfing origins. “Since I have a job, I’m not able to come as often as I’d like, but when it gets lighter I can skateboard after work,” he added. I learned that the skatepark was definitely a happenin’ place during the week, but especially on a weekend such as the Sunday of my visit. Standing in the afternoon sun watching the skateboarders was just a reminder of how closely related single board sports really are. With beginnings on the water as a surfboard, then on land with the skateboard, and finally to the kind of Olympic slopestyle and halfpipe maneuvers I watched yesterday, board sports have had quite a journey! Who knew that watching snowboarding in China’s winter weather would lead to the skatepark here in sunny Santa Barbara? The Olympics made me do it. That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it!

Central Coast Fans Attend NASCAR Busch Light Clash

What’s Been Happening? State Mask Mandates Relaxed Goleta Coffee Co. To Close its Doors Central Coast fans joined in on the unique first-ever NASCAR BUSCH LIGHT CLASH at the Coliseum in Los Angeles Sunday, February 6th. Joey Logano gets the trophy, Pit Bull and Ice Cube wowed the spectators with specially scheduled performances.

NEW RELAXED INDOOR MASK MANDATES on February 15th do not have everyone cheering. Some people say they will wait until it feels safer. So far Central Coast counties are not on board either. Others are glad it’s happening and they are ready to unmask.

The GOLETA COFFEE CO. says goodbye next week to Noleta. It opened 25 years ago. The most recent owner, of three years, has a healthy new move in a new commercial kitchen, but not a coffee shop.

BANNED BOOK SPOTLIGHT

Maus by Art Spiegelman AW, POWERFUL, AND INTENSELY PERSONAL, it is no wonder that Maus by Art Spiegelman is the first graphic novel to earn a Pulitzer Prize. Released as a series of comics throughout the 1980s and later compiled into a book format, Maus details the life of Spiegelman’s father, Vladek, a Holocaust survivor, as well as Spiegelman’s own struggles to connect with Vladek and understand his parents’ past. Readers are left with a heartwrenching, eye-opening memoir that not only sheds light on the horrors of the Holocaust, but its lingering effects on survivors and future generations. The first intriguing element of Spiegelman’s work is his decision to use animals as a metaphor for the different ethnic groups of people involved — for instance, Jewish characters are mice, and the Germans are cats. While many may initially view this metaphor as trite, it becomes increasingly clear that it is supposed to highlight the absurdity of prejudice. It also slightly separates readers from reality, helping them to better process the atrocities that the characters suffer.

These atrocities cement Maus as an important, if not extremely difficult read. Readers bounce between two timelines — flashbacks to Vladek’s wartime experiences, and Spiegelman’s conversations with his now middle-aged father. Through this, readers learn of his father’s and mother’s pre-war life, attempts to hide from the Nazis, and time in Auschwitz. This move distinguishes Maus as a comprehensive memoir, with readers following Spiegelman as he creates the comics themselves.

Black Parenting in 2022

Black History Month

A lesson from the Black Cat By James Joyce III, Special to VOICE

D

AYS BEFORE THE 2016 GENERAL PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, I opened my front door to head to my office at the time. Leather bag draped over my shoulder. Cup of coffee in my hand. And at my feet there was an unusual dark energy. Well it was dark, black in fact, a black cat. Its energy was that of calm familiarity as it tried to cross the threshold of my door.

Instinctively, I lowered my bag to make a barrier to let the strange cat know it was not welcome in my petless home. I was able to eventually shoo the cat away and I proceeded on with my day. The next morning as I darted out the door, once again, said black cat was walking across the courtyard towards my door, this time stopping about six feet from my door and taking a seat. Said cat was not rooted with any of my known neighbors, in fact, I later learned that some of them knew her as a stray and had been feeding her. I steered away from the inclination to what I had known since childhood, the superstitious fear telling me to avoid the black cat. Having grown into someone who challenges the status quo, in this instance, instead of accepting the perception of it being a bad omen to have a black cat cross your path, I researched further and quickly learned the negative superstition was mostly the western cultural interpretation of the black cat. For other cultures, such as England, Northern Ireland, and the northern African country of Egypt, interactions with a black cat indicate good luck, a blessing, or protection. Armed with this new, broader understanding of the presence of the black cat, I took the second day with the mysterious black cat at my door as a sign to stay in the house. I took a “sick day” and essentially worked from home, before working from home meant quarantine. The experience however, encouraged me to challenge the things that I had been socialized to understand about other words such as black Friday, which has had both negative and positive associations. Black ball. Black list. Black plague, black death, and other words that have negative connotations and associations with darkness. As opposed to the many positive and pure connotations that we generally have with the color white, like white knight, white hat, white out, the harmlessness of a white lie. Challenging these linguistic perceptions, I am reminded that language is important. Beyond the seemingly superficial over wokeness of pointing out the basic association with black as negative or bad and white as positive or good. Language is important. Language makes up policy. Policy impacts lives. The journey of moving the policy needle toward a more just and equitable society can seem long and arduous, as it has been a plight since our nation’s founding in pursuit of a more perfect union. But having a more conscious understanding of the power of our language seems like an obtainable intermediary goal en route to that larger aim. In my community work, I often hear talk about the challenges associated with systemic change. It is my belief that the best way to change a system is to alter the perspective of the things that make up that system. I offer a perspective that informs my approach to my community work. I harken back to an early childhood memory from elementary school. One of the few male educators I encountered and the only Black educator — despite my elementary school being named after an esteemed Black educator in my hometown, Robert Moton — was my elementary school art teacher, whose name happened to be Mr. Black. I vividly recall sitting on the cold hard stool in the art room that was located to the left of the main lobby and office. The art room shared a wall with the time-out room. The art room is where I recall Mr. Black explaining the color wheel. As we learned ROYGBIV (the acronym for the colors of the rainbow), he pointed out the colors white and black. In his retrospectively targeted comments, he pointed out how the color white is absent of any other colors, thus making it the only color that can exist in its pure form. When Mr. Black explained the color of his last name, our skin, I recall him emphasizing that black is the inclusion of all colors.

As there appears to be a festering division in our communities and country, a division that often seems driven by the color line, be that black and white or blue and red, I offer an opportunity to pause, take a breath, and like I did when I perceived the black cat, challenge the things that we think we know.

Joyce is a former award-winning journalist and runner up in the 2021 Santa Barbara mayoral election.

Reaching For the Sky

T

By Heidi Daugherty, Special to VOICE

HE IRONY WASN’T LOST ON ME RECENTLY, prior to this hallmark month, that I found myself hanging up a tree swing and taking down a noose. Both of these actions are for my biracial daughter and not because of Black History month which, for myself and most people of color is not just February but anything that happened prior to yesterday. The noose has historically hung in our family home, hidden in plain sight above the fireplace mantle and tucked partially behind a framed quotation, for years. It is a thing of beauty, despite the role it has played for generations in my family, and a stark reminder of how ugly our past is but also a beautiful promise that we must hope and believe in change. My mother bequeathed the noose to me, holding it firmly in her hands, along with the convictions, hope, and grief it represented. It is exquisite. It is hand braided and perfectly woven, adjustable by long leather straps of different hues and proudly made so that its victims would feel the love put into it as the last thing they might experience before their untimely passing. It was believed to be retrieved from a burly sycamore tree along with my great, great, great uncle after a planned lynching that sadly required the aid of his relatives, who lovingly replaced the whiskered rope with this smoothly braided artifact I had now put away. Parenting children of color, whether you are black yourself or not, isn’t always easy. It is clear that if I do not remind my children of their race, someone else certainly will. So the noose hung proudly, above our home’s hearth for years. I would allow my children to show it to their white friends, but never to take it out of our home for any reason. I’ve had the white parent of a first-time-ever “playdate” show up to my house to drop her child off and mistaking me for “The Help,” quietly ask if my daughter’s mother was home. The only appropriate response to this type of racially assumptive questioning is a strong sense of humor. It hasn’t always been funny being a black parent. My youngest daughter Stella has seen her mommy’s face smashed against the window next to her carseat during an unwarranted traffic stop with a cop that she would describe later as “The Woody sheriff man telling mommy to reach for the sky and making us cry.” She could only watch helplessly as this happened repeatedly over the years. My older children have seen me “reach for the sky” and then be handcuffed in my driveway for arguing with police, alerted about a group of black kids causing a disturbance and rejecting my response that the property they were standing on and aforementioned children were mine. My kids have been harassed both at school and in public needlessly and we never have the privilege of forgetting what we are, which is to most observers, non-white. Most white kids I know don’t have the same neuro-response to law enforcement that mine (or other kids of color) have. It took me over a decade and a civil rights attorney to have a chocolate dessert on the menu of a restaurant we had dined in changed from Black Joke pie, to mud bottom pie. Most parents want better for their children than they themselves had. We all want a safe environment and access to good schools and healthcare. Our kids are always watching. They learn what they live and I believe that change is in the air for the better. My youngest daughter asked me once while we were in the South why we weren’t wearing our name tags. I didn’t understand what she meant so she explained from her four-year old observations that everyone our color in the stores were wearing a name tag and since we were brown too, we needed to put one on. As my children have grown and changed, so has my parenting, but I never let them forget who they are and from where they came. I now have two adult children and a teenager. It was time to take down the baby swing in the backyard and oblige her request to hang a giant rectangular plank from the tree in our front yard. It’s a lovely piece of California Redwood large enough to hold two teenage girls with lanky legs and big dreams. Recent societal shifts suggested that it was time to take the family noose down and put it away in the same trunk that holds my birth certificate and a rusted “colored entrance only” sign that my mom saved from the bowling alley she met my father in Dothan, Alabama. The times are changing, and our family with them. The noose is down, the swing is up, and I hope my daughter spends many sunny adolescent afternoons and the rest of her beautiful black life “reaching for the sky” in a very different way than her mom and great-great-great relatives have. It’s high time that regardless of color, we ALL take our nooses down, bury our hatchets, and reach for the sky. Heidi Daugherty is a single mother of three, and grandmother of two.

EconomicVOICE Surprise January Jobs Growth!

I

N ANOTHER SURPRISE that will confound the pessimists who see a looming recession, the U.S. added 467,000 jobs in January and hiring was much stronger at the end of 2021 than originally reported. The U.S. added 510,000 jobs in December instead of 199,000. And employment rose by 647,000 in November compared to the prior estimate of 249,000. That’s 709,000 more jobs added to nonfarm payrolls in the past two months. ‘Total nonfarm payroll employment rose by 467,000 in January, and the unemployment rate was little changed at 4.0 percent,” the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today [February 4th]. “Employment growth continued in leisure and hospitality, in professional and business services, in retail trade, and in transportation and warehousing.” It’s easy to see why. Average hourly wages are rising at 5.7 percent, the fastest in decades, luring workers back into the employment fold. This is especially true in the Leisure and hospitality, Education & healthcare, Transportation, and Retail sectors where 295,000 jobs were added. So, companies apparently ramped up

hiring just as effects of the Omicron variant are subsiding. Actually, this hiring surge shouldn’t be such a surprise, since GDP grew at 5.7 percent last year, a 40-year high. The economy is running red-hot, but more employees returning to work will begin to bring down inflation. In fact, could it be that the Omicron variant is subsiding faster than expected? The U.S. is reporting an average of 354,399 new COVID-19 infections a day, sharply down from the more than 700,000 in mid-January, according to a Reuters analysis of official data. It looks like the Omicron variant has actually spurred higher growth, as I said last week. Fourth quarter GDP growth exploded to 6.9 percent, surpassing most estimates of five to six percent, as GDP got a big lift at the end of last year from businesses scrambling to restock empty shelves in time for the holiday season and warehouses hit by disruptions during the pandemic. This could be a surprising year, and the beginning of a surprising decade. There hasn’t been this much support for governments and working folk for decades, maybe even since the New Deal.

O YOU HAVE AN INSTRUMENT GATHERING DUST AT HOME? Do you want to support local students’ music education? Throughout the month of February, radio station 99.9 KTYD will partner with the Santa Barbara Education Foundation for its Keep the Beat Instrument Drive. On-air programming will raise awareness and celebrate music education, while contactless instrument donations sites will be available at two local sites. “We are always stunned by the way our community comes together to support students with the gift of music,” stated SBEF Executive Director Margie Yahyavi. “It’s such a huge win for our students! In addition to the problem-solving and cooperative learning skills learned through playing music, having a creative outlet can be such a huge benefit for a child, especially during this challenging time.” Last year’s Keep the Beat Instrument Drive brought in $30,000 in funding and 60 donated instruments, including accordions, cellos, Indian string instruments, and more. All donated funds and instruments will go to Santa Barbara Unified School District’s music education programming. This Februrary, SBUSD music teachers and local professional musicians will speak on-air about the value of music education in public schools. Guests will include George Pendergast of Dishwalla, Santa Barbara High School music and band director Dylan Aguilera, and Rick Boller from the Santa Barbara Bowl Foundation. A contactless instrument donation site will be available from 9am to 2pm at SBEF’s offices at 1330 State St. during the month of February. Instruments can also be donated at Nick Rail Music at 2801 De La Vina St.

Bodies, Perception, and Examining This Basic Asymmetry

Photo courtesy of MCASB

ARELY ARE VIEWERS CALLED TO CONFRONT THEIR RELATIONSHIP WITH THEIR OWN BODIES AS WELL AS OTHERS IN THE DYNAMIC, INTRIGUING MANNER OF THIS BASIC ASYMMETRY. On display at the Museum of Contemporary Art Santa Barbara through April 17th, the exhibition includes almost every art medium imaginable to create a thought-provoking and, at times, almost unnerving viewing experience. Harnessing the personal nature of each artists’ works, they play off each other to present a multi-faceted glimpse into how individuals perceive the human form. “Our perception or understanding of ourselves is all through what’s going on internally,” explained MCASB Chief Curator Alexandra Terry. “And then we can really only perceive and judge others based on what is going on, externally, so what we hear, what we see. And that really causes this basic asymmetry, this disconnection between us. But the hope with this show is that by bringing awareness to that, we can sort of mitigate some of the potential issues that can come about through that.” This concept, Terry explained, comes from the research of Emily Pronin, Associate Professor of Psychology and Public Affairs at Princeton University. Her work, combined with the pandemic’s surge of social distancing, masks, and greater awareness of the human body, inspired the exhibition’s creation. Upon entering the gallery, viewers are greeted by a photographed self-portrait by Paul Mpagi Sepuya, showing the artist photographing himself, the camera obscuring his face. This repeats through his other Fortune’s Here by Miguel Angel Payano Jr. photographs, forcing viewers to wonder if they are in fact the subject. As the gallery artist statement explains, it also allows Sepuya to “situate queerness and Blackness as starting points for the medium of photography itself.” When viewers cross the room, they encounter two sculptures that resemble a series of forms wrapped together. Created by Patricia Ayres, the pieces evoke an unsettling air with their misshapen shapes and bruise-like stains. This feeling is heightened upon reading her artist’s statement, where it reveals her works offer commentary on the “bodily subjugation”

of the American penal system and the Catholic Church. Artist Gabriela Ruiz’s immersive installation works, From Above and El Camino Solo, also utilize a sense of uneasiness to prove a point. Located in an adjacent room, viewers step into a sandbox as they stand before a life-sized cast of Ruiz’s body and are filmed on a screen. A chaotic soundtrack completes the experience, forcing viewers to examine the difference between self-perception and surveillance. The remaining artists offer a respite from this intensity, with artist Simone Forti’s projected video Flag on the Water exploring the connection between body, nature, and America’s identity by gracefully washing flags in a river. Nearby, Afro-Caribbean artist Miguel Angel Payano Jr. humorously questions what it means to be a part of multiple cultures, languages, and the idea of “code switching” between them through surreal paintings dominated by mouths and eyes. There are also two of his mixed-media busts featuring animal figurines, fake flowers, and shoes. Together, this broad range of styles and perspectives allow viewers to fully reflect on how the human body is viewed and treated. Regardless of an individual’s personal reaction, the exhibition highlights the power of art in tackling complex topics. “One thing I want our community to understand is that there’s no right or wrong,” said Terry. “You could come in and totally dislike the work, or you could love it and not really understand why, but what we really ask is where are these reactions coming from?” MCASB is located at 653 Paseo Nuevo and is open 12pm-5pm Sundays, 11am-5pm Wednesdays, Fridays, & Saturdays, and 11am-8pm Thursdays • www.mcasantabarbara.org

EW ARTISTS DESERVE THE TITLE OF CULTURAL ICON better than Vincent van Gogh. His artistic skill combined with his volatile personality has led to the circulation of many urban legends about his life. However, many of these stories are not true. For instance, it is often rumored that van Gogh would eat yellow paint —a color he famously admired — in attempts to cheer Vincent van Gogh (Dutch, 1853–1890), The Wheatfield, 1888. Oil himself on canvas, 21 3⁄4 × 26 1⁄4 in. Honolulu Museum of Art, Gift of Mrs. Richard A. Cooke and Family in memory of Richard A. Cooke, 1946, 377.1. up. In reality, this story is a romanticization of the artist’s mental health issues, as his physician at the Saint-Rémy mental hospital recorded that van Gogh wanted to poison himself. Another story has van Gogh placing candles in his hat to paint The Starry Night. Yet according to researcher Teio Meedendorp, this myth only emerged with a book written over 30 years after van Gogh’s death and contradicts the artist’s written records. Additionally, while van Gogh did not achieve fame until after death, he did sell a handful of his works while alive, also trading some pieces for food or supplies. It is true, however, that a portion of his works will remain lost, as multiple recipients threw them out.

HERE IS ONE GOOD REASON TO BATTLE TRAFFIC THESE DAYS driving north on the Pacific Coast Highway. And the reason is to see a very special exhibition at the Weisman Museum of Art at Pepperdine University. The Cultivators: Highlights from the Kinsey African American Art and History Collection, features works of art, photographs, rare books, and manuscripts that document “the achievements and contributions of African Americans over the last five centuries.”

A deeply personal reason for sharing their collection with the Weisman Museum of Art is the fact that both Bernard and Shirley Kinsey earned graduate degrees from Pepperdine University.

The exhibition is based on the private collection of LA-based collectors, Bernard and Shirley Kinsey, who have been generously loaning their signature objects to dozens of venues around the globe. I had the pleasure of meeting them at the exhibition and heard the Kinsey’s captivating story about their passion for traveling the world to over 90 countries, which inspired them to become “caretakers of Black history and culture.”

FORTY YEARS AGO, at L.A. Louver gallery, I had my first introduction to paintings by the major British artist, Leon Kossoff (19262019). Now, L.A. Louver presents their seventh exhibition of his works titled, A Life in Painting. And what an amazing life of art it’s been for nearly 60 years. His self-portraits, nudes, and London cityscapes with their impasto technique are not meant to please you. Instead, they are sculpting with a brush intensely personal stories, which makes me think of Kossoff not only as a captivating painter, but as an eloquent novelist. In 2000, Leon Kossoff had an exhibition at The Getty Museum of his works inspired by Poussin. In a very unusual preparation for this exhibition, The Getty shipped a Poussin painting to London’s National Gallery allowing Kossoff to spend hours and days studying and absorbing this masterpiece while creating his own artistic response to it. Kossoff was known to hate flying, and for his opening at The Getty, he traveled by boat. I had the pleasure of meeting him then and was surprised by his modesty and reserved demeanor so unlike his bold and dramatic paintings.

His First Exhibition Was Also His Last

OT MANY PEOPLE KNEW MARK MATSUNO BY NAME, but his lifetime of work has touched countless people.

The San Francisco native, born in 1952, moved to Los Angeles at the age of 20 to work in advertising and specialized in producing printed promotional materials for Hollywood movies. Working on marketing materials for High Fidelity, Saving Private Ryan, and many others, as well as overseeing the production of packaging designs for the Friends DVD box set and the Harry Potter DVDs, Matsuno was known as a rare, talented, and drama-free graphic designer in Hollywood, according to those close to him.

After battling a serious illness for more than two years, Matsuno died December 12, 2021, at the age of 69. In his later years, Matsuno found time to paint. At his death, Matsuno’s paintings were showing at the Thomas Reynolds Gallery in Santa Barbara, and some remain on view. “For many years, Mark would visit my gallery in San Francisco when he came home to see friends and family,” Reynolds said. “I always enjoyed his visits and hearing stories about his work as a big-time Hollywood art director. So imagine my surprise when I received a message from him last year reporting that the pandemic had given him more time to paint, and including a link to some of his paintings. They were terrific! I was especially pleased since I’d recently moved my gallery to Santa Barbara and was eager to include more Southern California artists.” Reynolds added, “We debuted his first exhibition,

Urban Landscapes, last fall, and his paintings stirred a great response. Unfortunately, his first exhibition will also be his last. Farewell to a talented artist and a wonderful human being.” Matsuno wrote in an autobiographical post last October, “Throughout my career as a creative director in advertising, I never forgot my passion for fine art. In recent years, I have fine-tuned my talent as a painter and turned my attention to creating a body of work, which has proven to be a renaissance of sorts for me. I enjoy depicting recognizable icons and structures within the urban landscapes that surround me, in both Los Angeles and my native San Francisco, and turning them into works of art.” His son, Myles Matsuno, said his father “fulfilled a dream” when he started showing and selling his paintings. His daughter, Alyssa Matsuno Dessert, recalled that her father, an eclectic lover of music and film, would put on music and paint all day in his art studio at home. He enjoyed painting jazz artists, but also landscapes of California's urban centers. Matsuno Dessert added that her father encouraged her creative side, and his works would sometimes play off her own work. “I used to take a lot of pictures, and at times he would end up painting some of the pictures I'd taken. So that was kind of our thing,” she said. “Not necessarily a specific place, but traveling together, walking the streets of San Francisco together, walking around France together, just being together. And then, seeing him take those photos and turn them into his artwork was pretty special.” Myles Matsuno, a filmmaker, also collaborated with his father. He asked his father to design the posters for his first feature film, Christmas in July (2021), as well as

his documentary, First to Go (2018). The documentary is about Kchiro Kataoka, Mark Matsuno's maternal grandfather and the first Japanese American arrested by the FBI in San Francisco after the attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. "He was so happy and proud I made that movie," Myles Matsuno said. "I mean, he's part of the reason I made it in the first place — he’s the one, along with my grandma. He's the reason I even started learning about any of that stuff, because that wasn't taught to me in the school system.” Some of Mark Matsuno’s urban landscapes remain on view at the Thomas Reynolds Gallery at 1331 State Street in Santa Barbara.

BIG TECH IS UNDERMINING OUR FREE AND VIBRANT PRESS Quality local journalism is key to sustaining civic society, strengthening communal ties, and providing information at a deeper level that national outlets cannot match. Meanwhile, Facebook increasingly fills the void with untrustworthy sources and misinformation, becoming America's de facto local news source.

February 11, 2022

73%

The public overwhelmingly trusts local reporting – 73% of U.S. adults surveyed said they have confidence in their local newspaper, compared to 55% for national network news.

1540 Counties

Nearly half of U.S. counties – 1,540 counties – have only one newspaper, and almost 200 counties have no local newspaper at all.

THE JOURNALISM COMPETITION AND PRESERVATION ACT CAN LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD THE JCPA WILL: Enable news publishers to collectively negotiate for fairer terms with Big Tech, driving billions of dollars of earned subscription and advertisement dollars back to the publishers who develop journalism

The Journalism Competition and Preservation Act (JCPA), S. 673 & H.R. 1735, is a bipartisan bill, sponsored by Senators John Kennedy (R-LA), Amy Klobuchar (D-MN), and Representatives Ken Buck (R-CO) and David Cicilline (D-RI). The bill provides a four-year antitrust "safe harbor" for news companies to seek fair compensation from Facebook and Google to use their content, ensure local journalists are paid for their critical work, and improve the quality and accessibility of reporting. The JCPA is a reasonable correction for a market failure: it is limited in time and scope, it's procompetition, content-neutral, and non-exclusionary and it enjoys support from hundreds of small and local publishers across the ideological spectrum throughout the country. Congress must pass the JCPA now, before quality journalism becomes yesterday’s news.

Include an allocation structure to ensure that payments to news organizations are evenly distributed and ensure small and medium-sized papers are the largest beneficiaries Allow market forces, not two companies, to determine how and for what price news publishers' content is offered Include funding for "news deserts," areas where local papers have shuttered, encouraging local papers to reopen
