SB City Council Loans $30,000 to Proposed Coast Village Road Community Benefit District

T

By Daisy Scott / VOICE

HE SANTA BARBARA CITY COUNCIL WILL LOAN $30,000 to support the Coast Village Association’s efforts toward creating a Coast Village Community Benefit District. If formed, this district would establish a stable local funding source for special services in the Coast Village area. “The Coast Village Association is advocating for the area’s businesses and properties and the need of assistance, having sustained back-to-back disasters in the past several years,” expressed Jason Harris, the city’s Economic Development Manager to the City Council on February 9th. “The association feels strongly that the special services that could be delivered by a community benefit district would help support business recovery.” The proposed district would cover the Coast Village Road commercial area extending from Olive Mill Road to Los Patos Way, which contains over 350 businesses. According to initial questioning of the area’s property owners, there is great interest in raised district funds going toward responding to homelessnesss through street outreach, marketing promotion, and holiday decor and street festivals. Other potential services include beautification, safety ambassadors, and regular sidewalk and gutter sweeping. The exact costs and services offered will be determined later in the process. While the CVA has already raised $30,000 to hire the consulting firm New City America, Inc. to review and guide the district formation process, it requested that the City Council grant an additional $30,000 to cover remaining consultant costs as they continue to work on the necessary reports. The funding was approved on a loan basis, with the amount to be paid back if and when the district successfully forms. For now, the $30,000 will come from funds allocated for business corridor improvements included within Measure C funding. However, while the City Council was generally supportive of the idea of the Community Benefit District, there was concern over the CVA’s proposal for the district’s enabling ordinance. According to Marco Li Mandre, a New City America consultant, an initial survey sent out to property owners in October 2020 found that approximately 50 percent were interested in continuing to investigate the idea of a community benefit district. Yet he and the CVA expressed that they wanted the enabling ordinance’s initiating petition threshold to be lowered to 30 percent of support from property owners, with a maximum district term of 20 years. Traditionally, state law requests a 50 percent petition support and a five year term. “I cannot imagine, however you’re weighting it, that a 30 percent positive response rate is indicative [that] people see this as a great way to do whatever it is you’re going to do,” voiced Councilmember Mike Jordan.

Word and Life: Confronting Racism Series

Lifting the Mask of Racism: Dueling Consciousness and Power By Maura Conlon-McIvor / Special to VOICE

“AMERICANS HAVE LONG BEEN TRAINED TO SEE THE DEFICIENCIES OF PEOPLE RATHER THAN POLICY. It’s a pretty easy mistake to make: People are in our faces. Policies are distant,” writes Ibram X. Kendi in his New York Times bestseller, How to Be an AntiRacist. Vashti Tameka Wilson – a presenter at Word and Life’s “Confronting Racism” series – asserts that “knowing what it’s like to be in the skin of an African American” is a prerequisite to any intellectual discussion of racism. She says, “By removing my mask as an African American woman, I hope to give you a glimpse into the dueling consciousness that permeates every facet of my daily life.” Wilson, a Diversity and Inclusion Strategist, former Air Force linguistic cryptologist whose language was Russian, and co-founder of the non-profit Madi’s Treasure Box, addressed the historical significance of “dual consciousness,” a term coined by the Black Civil Rights activist, W.E.B. DuBois. He describes this reality as “a peculiar sensation…this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One feels Vashti Tameka Wilson his two-ness,—an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings.” She evoked Kendi’s book – requisite reading for the Confronting Racism series – where “dual consciousness” is equivocated as a “dueling consciousness.” According to Kendi, “The White body defines the American body. The White body segregates the Black body from the American body. The White body instructs the Black body to assimilate into the American body. The White body rejects the Black body assimilating into the American body.” Mirroring these fraught racial dynamics, Wilson played The Look (www.youtube.com/watch?v=aC7lbdD1hq0) told from the point of view of a roving camera that represents the “presence” of an African American man entering public spaces, its lens capturing reactionary faces and armored pauses of surrounding white people, insinuating he doesn’t belong. Wilson also shared Maya Angelou’s recitation of We Wear The Mask, a poem addressing the ameliorative facial expression, “a survival apparatus,” worn by African Americans. “We wear the mask that grins and lies./It shades our cheeks and hides our eyes,” speaks Angelou. (www.youtube.com/watch?app=desktop&feature=share&v=_HLol9InMlc.) The mask and the dueling consciousness create a hyper-awareness, such that an individual African American often feels as if they represent all Black people. “People don’t get to see the screaming behind the mask,” Wilson added. “It’s an enormous weight to carry on a daily basis,” she said, noting “the constant necessity to convince others I belong in the room.” She described implicit bias, how, for example, using a Black or “urban name” when applying for a position will lead to a 50 percent less chance of “moving on to the next round.” Wilson, who holds an MBA and served in Iraq and Afghanistan goes by her name, Vashti, sharing that in not using her [original] name “makes me feel a little part of me had died.” In denying racism, a white individual may speak about the one AfricanAmerican person they know, but Wilson asserted, “that is akin to tasting caviar only once in your life and saying you know caviar. How can you truly understand something if you’ve barely experienced it?” She also noted how in literature, a white person is ascribed many hues, “auburn hair, ice blue eyes, pale skin, rosy cheeks,” whereas an African American person is referred to as a “Black man” or a “Black woman.” She also mentioned how prominent African Americans are often described as being “articulate,” as if that’s not the norm, a term rarely ascribed a white person. Wilson, who points to living beyond the mask, evokes a hopeful future. She cites her eight-year-old daughter who, while watching a movie asked, “They don’t have any brown people—do they not like brown people?” With Wilson’s guidance, her daughter launched Madi’s Treasure Box, disseminating to schools newly designed, multi-colored crayons reflecting a range of 16 skin colors. The non-profit has been featured on Cuomo Prime Time, NBC Evening News, The Today Show, The Washington Post, NPR, and other media. Wilson added, we all can speak up when witnessing racism by saying: “‘That behavior is not okay.’ That’s all that’s required.” “What convinces people are your actions.” Word and Life’s “Confronting Racism,” series runs January 14th through March 18th, Thursdays, 10 to 11:30am. Podcasts of completed presentations are online at www.wordandlife.us.

Community News Cover Story Restoration to support formerly homeless women

Historic Home To Be Turned Into Affordable Housing

T

HE RESTORATION OF A HISTORIC PROPERTY BY PEOPLE’S SELF-HELP HOUSING will soon be creating affordable living space for homeless women. The home will be called Heath House and is expected to open this month. “We were thrilled to have the opportunity to restore this historic property and to bring much-needed permanent affordable housing to the City of Santa Barbara,” said Morgen Benevedo, Executive Vice President of PSHH. “Heath House is truly one-of-a-kind and we look forward to welcoming our new residents home in a few short weeks.” The home, located on E. Sola Street, was formerly a hospice for AIDS patients. In 2020 PSHH purchased the property, with plans for an extensive restoration and rehabilitation. Heath House will provide housing for seven formerly homeless women in the area. The two-story, 2,500 square-foot home will be comprised of seven bedrooms, five-bathrooms, multiple common areas, and a shared kitchen and dining room. PSHH will also provide onsite supportive services, including case management, counseling, education programs, and compassionate property management – all free of charge for the residents. At the end of 2020, generous community donations of over $34,000 were raised to help complete the furnishings, provide bedding and personal items, and other household essentials for the new residents. According to PSHH, additional donations are needed to complete the landscaping, provide a community garden, and to add final finishing touches in the restful outdoor areas.

Founded in 1970, People’s Self-Help Housing is the longest-serving nonprofit affordable housing organization on the Central Coast. PSHH has a presence in San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Ventura, and Monterey counties, manages over 2,000 rental units, and employs over 200 staff members.

N AN EFFORT TO SUPPORT LOCAL RESTAURANTS THAT ARE SUFFERING FINANCIAL HARDSHIPS as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Elaine F. Stepanek Foundation Restaurant Fund has announced a new grant program. Through this program, small, independently owned, dine-in restaurants in the City of Santa Barbara and the Santa Ynez Valley are eligible to apply for relief grants up to $10,000. “Our local restaurants are a vibrant and important part of our community,” said President of the Elaine F. Stepanek Foundation, Dan Gainey. “With this fund, we hope to give some of our small, independently owned restaurants which have been severely impacted by COVID-19 some financial assistance to support their basic needs in the short term when there are gaps in federal, state, and local funding related to pandemic relief. We strongly believe that providing support to these businesses will benefit the entire community.” Applications are currently open for the grant program, and will close on Monday, February 22nd. The Elaine F. Stepanek Foundation Restaurant Fund is a committee-advised fund within the Santa Barbara Foundation.

N A HEARTWARMING DISPLAY OF COMMUNITY CONSIDERATION AND ACTIVISM, brothers and San Marcos High School students Jaden and Jordan Lind have raised and donated over $12,000 to help Santa Barbara Unified School District students in need get access to WiFi. Aged 17 and 15 years old respectively, their actions will make a difference for many students’ learning experiences. “With 3,000 families in the district in need of financial support to pay for quality WIFI so their kids can participate in remote learning, Jaden and Jordan’s generous donation will go a long way towards meeting this need,” said Santa Barbara Education Foundation Director Margie Yayhavi. “We truly can’t thank them enough.” Jaden and Jordan began their efforts as soon as the COVID-19 pandemic forced schools to shift to remote learning. They started reaching out to their extended family and friends, and were able to successfully organize a WiFi fund campaign for SBUSD students in need. The raised funds have been donated to Jordan and Jaden Lind the Santa Barbara Education Foundation, a nonprofit that works toward raising money to support SBUSD. Both water polo players, Jaden and Jordan have a history of giving back to their community. Beyond their school and extracurricular responsibilities, the brothers volunteer and serve food at local homeless shelters each weekend. Additionally, a little over a year ago, they and their family travelled to India in order to distribute holiday gifts to an orphanage. https://sbefoundation.org

Anticipation of the Awards Season Heats Up As Santa Barbara International Film Festival Honorees Are Announced DELROY LINDO is set to receive the American Riviera Award at the 36th annual Santa Barbara International Film Festival. Lindo will be honored on Thursday, April 8th and will be recognized for his many contributions to the art of film over the years, most recently for his work in Spike Lee’s DA 5 BLOODS from Netflix. “I’ve been a big fan of Delroy since I saw him on stage on August Wilson’s Joe Turner’s Come and Gone in 1988. He is one of cinema’s most indelible actors. This is an overdue recognition,” noted SBIFF’s Executive Director Roger Durling. Lindo can currently be seen in Spike Lee’s critically acclaimed film Da 5 Bloods available on Netflix. Lindo has had memorable roles in films such as The Cider House Rules; Heist; and previously garnered critical acclaim in a trio of films with director, Lee: Clockers; Crooklyn, and Malcolm X. He’ll be seen next in the Netflix film, The Harder They Fall. On TV, Lindo appeared for four seasons as Adrian Boseman in Delroy Lindo CBS’ The Good Fight. He debuted on Broadway, in Master Harold and the Boys; received Tony and Drama Desk Award nominations, playing Herald Loomis in August Wilson’s, Joe Turner’s Come and Gone; and played Walter Lee in the Kennedy Center and Los Angeles productions of A Raisin in the Sun (Helen Hayes Award Nomination and NAACP Image Award, Best Actor). Lindo has an Honorary Doctorate in Arts and Humanities from Virginia Union University; a BFA degree from San Francisco State University; and an MFA from New York University’s Gallatin School. The American Riviera Award was established to recognize actors who have made a significant contribution to American Cinema. Previous recipients include Renée Zellweger, Viggo Mortenson, Sam Rockwell, Jeff Bridges, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams, Mark Ruffalo, Patricia Arquette, Ethan Hawke, Robert Redford, Quentin Tarantino, Martin Scorsese, Annette Bening, Sandra Bullock, Mickey Rourke, Tommy Lee Jones, Forrest Whitaker, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Kevin Bacon, and Diane Lane.

Harbor VOICE Talking “plans” with 2021 Commodore Andra Escola

I

Photo by Sigrid Toye

T WAS SO ENCOURAGING TO SEE ALL THE RESTAURANTS ALONG CABRILLO BOULEVARD BACK IN BUSINESS with outdoor dining in full swing over the weekend! And the weather, still a bit nippy, looked like it might be gearing up for Spring …. certainly the ornamental pear trees in full bloom are the first harbingers for the season to come. Down at the harbor, the deck of the Santa Barbara Yacht Club was also dotted with happy campers enjoying a spectacular view of the harbor environs as they dined. On the subject of the Yacht Club, this organization (along with the rest of us here in Santa Barbara) is learning to navigate the limitations of the Coronavirus environment with a few exciting plans of its own. And what better way to find out about them, than a chat with 2021 Commodore Andra Escola. The daughter of 1993 Commodore Edward Marini, Escola grew up at the Club and in the sailing community with all the credentials and experience needed for building a bridge between an honored past and a hopeful future. “It’s important to me to maintain the long standing traditions of the Yacht Club as we approach our 150th anniversary year while preparing to move forward keeping up with the approaching times,” she related. Of course, I was curious as to what the Commodore has planned for the year ahead. “Lots!’, she exclaimed without hesitation. “With the continuing support of the Board and the assistance of our amazing General Manager, Rich Nahas, a complete remodel of the Club’s present facility is in the final planning stages in preparation for the 150th year.” Young Construction of Santa Barbara has every tool at the ready for the project awaiting the Board’s final approval. “This dormant phase of the COVID pandemic couldn’t be a more perfect time for the upgrade,” added Escola. “Our Clubhouse will be revisioned for the future and our creativity extends to other programs for the uncertain year ahead.” The Yacht Club’s location and its huge success has been the beach front. “The use of the beach has the potential for many family friendly activities along with other outdoor gatherings going forward as weather and California regulations permit,” explained Escola. Opening day, the Commodore’s Ball, and the Charity Regatta might be held in other than in-person formats, but all are being planned.

Temporary Flagship of the Yacht Club with Commodore Andra, Tracy, and Jeff Escola

The Club’s cruising program has been a roaring success and the racing programs will continue either on the water or virtually. “Last year’s virtual racing program established by our racing director, Brad Schaupeter, had over 100 participants, another example of innovative thinking,” she chuckled. As the mother of 12 year old Taylor, Escola is heavily invested in youth sailing, including the Yacht Club’s Youth Sailing Foundation. Thanks to the Club’s youth programs, Taylor (along with many other young people) is well on her way to carrying on as the third generation of Santa Barbara sailors! Broadening the Yacht Club’s involvement in the community and developing partnerships with other harbor entities is definitely in the Commodore’s play book. The Yacht Club’s website will be expanded to include the Monday Lunch lectures accessible to the general public along with other community events of interest. “When it’s COVID safe at some point, a dream of mine is to establish a yearly event sponsored by the Yacht Club open to everyone in the harbor community to join together on the water or on land to honor and celebrate the year. Father Larry of the Santa Barbara Mission would provide the blessing, as he does for all community wide events.” Speaking for myself, I thought this was an awesome idea! One of the advantages of living in Santa Barbara is that the city truly is a connected community, reaching out to all of us who live here. For the duration of 2021, Commodore Andra Escola’s picture, as the Santa Barbara Yacht Club’s third female commodore, hangs on the wall above the stairs of the clubhouse. However, her vision extends much farther and I look forward to her accomplishments during the year ahead. Until the Escola family finishes rebuilding their 1988 Duffy 35 foot lobster boat, the official Flagship of the Yacht Club (also hanging in a place of honor above the stairs) is a sturdy rowboat meant for three: Andra Escola, her husband Jeff, and their daughter Tracy. Opening Day will be on Sunday, March 7th, so do stay tuned! Sigrid Toye volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project.

2001 Employment Recession

January Employment Barely Rises

T

By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

https://covidtracking.com/data/charts/2-metrics-7-day-average-curves

HE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FELL BY 0.4 PERCENTAGE POINTS to 6.3 percent in January, while nonfarm payroll employment changed little (+49,000), the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported. The U.S. labor market continued to reflect the impact of the (COVID-19) pandemic, which means much more economic aid is needed to offset the damage. The Calculated Risk 2020 line in the graph portrays the damage done by the pandemic in the tenth month of this recession vs. earlier recessions, with ten million jobs still lost and almost 20

million receiving unemployment benefits of some kind. In fact, BLS reports the jobs picture began to worsen in November and December. The change in total nonfarm payroll employment for November was revised down by 72,000, from +336,000 to +264,000, and the change for December was revised down by 87,000, from -140,000 to -227,000. With these revisions, employment in November and December combined was 159,000 lower than previously reported. The report also showed where most of the

damage was done and why unemployment benefits must be extended past March for those in the lower-income brackets. Leisure and hospitality lost 61,000 jobs in January due to the pandemic. In March and April of 2020, leisure and hospitality lost 8.2 million jobs, and then gained about 60 percent of those jobs back. However, leisure and hospitality lost jobs in December and January, and is now down 3.9 million jobs since February 2020. But professional firms in tech, science, and so forth added 93,000 employees last month to lead the way in hiring. And 23 percent of the employed “teleworked” from home, a sign of future job trends. These data refer to employed persons who teleworked or worked at home for pay at some point in the last four weeks, specifically because of the pandemic, said the BLS. Employment fell in almost every other part of the economy. Jobs in leisure and hospitality —

restaurants, hotels, casinos, theaters, and the like — dropped by 61,000 in January after a massive 536,000 decline in December. States began to lift business restrictions last month as coronavirus cases began to recede again, but not enough to give a big boost to employment. Retailers shed 38,000 jobs, healthcare providers cut 30,000 positions, and firms in warehousing and transportation cut payrolls by 28,000.

Clear Cooperation Leads to a Fair Playing Field By Brian Johnson, 2021 President, SBAOR

L

19

Local News for a Global Village | www.VoiceSB.com

AST YEAR, THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS implemented a new policy across the country called Clear Cooperation. The policy states that within one business day of marketing a residential listing to the public, brokers must submit the listing to the MLS for cooperation with other members. Most people when they learned of this policy would ask, “Weren’t they already doing this?” and “What’s the big deal?” To understand why it is a big deal, we really must start with understanding the first question, of “Was this done previously?” As it turns out, “pocket listings,” or listings that are selectively marketed, were becoming very popular across the country. The use of these pocket listings had the effect of excluding consumers and undermined the commitment that REALTORS make to providing equal opportunity access to housing. Numerous studies show that different demographic groups have different experiences in the housing market and the National Association of REALTORS is committed to working to reduce inequalities in housing, thus this new policy. It is important to understand why Clear Cooperation is a benefit to both consumers and to our profession. Clear Cooperation protects the consumer. By marketing a property on the MLS, it exposes the property to the largest group of potential buyers, making sure that a seller can achieve the best outcome for their Brian Johnson,

property. It also adds transparency to the home buying process. If it is out there being marketed to everyone, then there will not be any questions from a client to an agent about why that agent did not tell their client about the listing. Sellers become better informed about the exposure of their property to the market and buyers have fair and equal opportunity to purchase. Concerning our profession, transparency is key. We are trusted advisors for a reason. We earn the trust of our clients and that means keeping their best interests in mind. Additionally, we owe that same level of professionalism to our fellow agents. That means making sure that one segment of the public does not have more information than other consumers have. It also means that we agree to follow the rules that we have set up for ourselves. By allowing these “pocket listings,” it creates a shadow, secondary market that can be controlled by a smaller group of agents who may or may not allow other agents or customers access. This creates inequality in the housing market and consumer distrust about our profession. At the end of the day, we have to decide what kind of profession we want to be – one that earns the trust of the public through a transparent transaction process or one that fosters different levels of access and information for different groups. I am proud of my fellow REALTORS for having adopted this policy and for their commitment to equality in housing.

After all, oil reserves account for nearly all the hydrocarbons whether its presence might prime the ocean to break down spilled we encounter. But the few hydrocarbons that trace their origin to biological sources may petroleum. The key question, play a larger ecological role than scientists originally suspected.

Samples from near the oil seeps quickly developed blooms. “Within to collect samples and run experiments. about a week of adding pentane, we saw an abundant population develop,” Valentine said. “And that The team sampled seawater from a nutrient-poor region of the gets slower and slower the further away you get, until, when you’re out in the North Atlantic, you can Atlantic known as the Sargasso Sea, named for the floating sargassum wait months and never see a bloom.” In fact, Arrington had to stay behind after the expedition at the seaweed swept in from the Gulf of Mexico.

Obtaining the samples was apparently a rather tricky endeavor. Interestingly, the team also found evidence that microbes belonging to another domain of life, Because pentadecane is a common hydrocarbon in diesel fuel, the team Archaea, may also play a role in the pentadecane cycle. “We learned that a group of mysterious, had to take extra precautions to avoid contamination from the ship globally abundant microbes — which have yet to be domesticated in the laboratory — may be fueled itself.

A Modern-Day Old Master N STEVAN SHAPONA’S REALIST PAINTINGS OF THE FEMALE FIGURE — now on view at the Thomas Reynolds Gallery on State Street — one can find qualities of light, color, and composition not often seen in work by contemporary artists. “I’m a traditionalist,” Shapona noted. “My aim is to take a concern for formal abstract values in one hand and a concern for representing the human figure in the other. My hope is to harmoniously combine these two concerns.” A native of San Francisco, Shapona has strong formal training. He has painted still lifes and landscapes, but it is figure work that has commanded his attention in recent years. “The female figure is my preference,” he added. “My enjoyment of form — as well as the intimacy of the human condition — is for me best expressed by working with female models.” The Thomas Reynolds Gallery has exhibited Shapona’s work for more than two decades. The gallery — recently relocated from San Francisco to 1331 State Street, in Santa Barbara’s arts district — is presenting an intimate selection of Shapona’s paintings just in time for Valentine’s Day.

ITH A MISSION TO “CREATE MEMORABLE IMAGES AND CAPTURE THE MAGIC OF THE MOMENT,” Roe Anne White uses a camera to “portray the essence of the individual,” or to “reveal the affection of the couple, family, or group” she is working with. In her fine art work she also takes the time to savor details of the environment that she then shares with those around her. A member of Professional Photographers of America, White’s website offers Flora 87 by Roe Anne White examples of her portraits – of families and headshots for business and graduates – as well as architecture and an array of fine art photography. White has worked in commercial and Fine Art Photographphy since the 80s, and her work has been featured in solo exhibitions in Santa Barbara, Montecito, Carpinteria, and Los Angeles as well as in group exhibitions here and abroad including Women in the Wilds, Lahania, Rhodes, Greece.
