Frequency Wines Invites Locals to Sip and Savor Downtown SB

ERVING DELICIOUS WINES ON A SUN-DRENCHED PATIO, Frequency Wines’ new tasting room presents locals and visitors alike the opportunity to fully appreciate all that Santa Barbara has to offer. Located at the former site of the Presidio Cafe, customers enjoy high-quality wines while supporting a local family-owned company. Ideal for wine aficionados or individuals searching for a relaxing experience to share with friends, Frequency Wines’ tasting room is a welcome addition to the downtown scene. “Our tasting room will act as a place of coming together for the local community and a place of discovery for tourists wanting to experience local Santa Barbara culture,” shared Frequency’s Winemaker Zac Wasserman. “With Frequency — we hope to capture the beauty of Santa Barbara County — both in our tasting room and of course in the wines we bottle — in order to share the magic of where we are from, with the world. A bottle of wine holds an experience of Santa Barbara within it, encapsulated for others to enjoy.” Born and raised in Santa Ynez, Wasserman understands the region as only a true local can. After graduating from Santa Ynez High School, he moved to the Bay Area, where he studied molecular biology at UC Berkeley and briefly worked in a genetics lab on campus before moving back to the Santa Ynez Valley region. After his sister introduced him to Joey Tensley, the owner and winemaker of Tensley Wines in Los Olivos, Wasserman grew inspired to launch a business that would merge his business aspirations and family values. A family-owned and operated company, Wasserman bottled the first commercial vintage of Frequency Wines in Maria Wasserman and her son, Winemaker Zac Wasserman 2011. Previously, the company

operated a tasting room space next to Cheese Shop Santa Barbara for close to four years. However, when the opportunity to move Frequency Wines to Anacapa Street was presented to Wasserman by local businesses, he knew they had to take it. Featuring string lights hanging over its patio decked with chairs, tables, and umbrellas, Frequency Wines’ new patio space is as welcoming as it is stylish. Seating is also offered within the location’s chic interior. Customers can choose to either order wine by the bottle, glass, or partake in that day’s tasting flight to experience a delightful sample of what the tasting room has to offer. As the tasting room regularly rotates its wines, visitors can always anticipate something new. As of last week, visitors could enjoy a Santa Barbara County Blanc, John Sebastiano Chardonnay, Hilliard Bruce Vineyard Pinot Noir, and more. “With the multitude of wines that exist in this world, unique is necessary,” explained Wasserman. “This comes with capturing the essence of the vineyard, the place where the grape comes from, that is truly unique. We are making one-of-a-kind bottlings through cellar techniques that shepherd the honest and clean expressions of the fruit.” In the future, customers wishing to host special events at Frequency Wines’ new location will be able to rent out the space. For the time being, Wasserman is excited to be a part of efforts to revitalize the Anacapa St. courtyard and downtown Santa Barbara. Frequency Wines is open 12-6pm Mondays - Fridays, 11am-6pm Saturdays & Sundays. It is located at 804 Anacapa St. • www.frequencywines.com

BOOK REVIEW

A

S LONG AS THERE HAVE BEEN INDIVIDUALS WHO WRITE DIFFICULT TRUTHS, THERE HAVE BEEN PEOPLE WHO OPPOSE THEM. Calls to ban books deemed “inappropriate” for their refusal to conform to American society’s comfort zone by discussing nuanced subjects such as racism, gender identity, or sexuality, have been around for centuries. On a more recent — and local — level, banning books is inextricably linked to efforts to ban the exploration of equity in the classroom, as seen with Fair Education Santa Barbara’s 2018 lawsuit against the Santa Barbara Unified School District for providing implicit bias training for teachers and students. The court unanimously determined that this training was and is lawful. Over the past months, there has been an alarming increase of groups nationwide — including politicians, school boards, and parents — calling for the banning of particular titles, with proposed restrictions ranging from their presence in schools to completely removing them from area libraries. According to the New York Times, the American Library Association has reported that it received 330 book challenges last fall. Each of these challenges can consist of requests to ban multiple books. The leaders of these charges are largely white, indisputably privileged individuals. The majority of authors that they are striving Beloved by Toni Morrison is to ban are predominantly BIPOC writers (Black, Indigenous, ranked #45 on the American & People of Color), and members of the LGBTQ+ community, Library Association’s list of the whose books openly address long-silenced, neglected, and vitally top banned books from 20102019 important issues. There have even been efforts to ban personal accounts of Holocaust survivors, including Night by Nobel Peace Prize winner Elie Wiesel, and Maus, a graphic novel by Art Spiegelman. According to the National Coalition Against Censorship, schools have the authority to determine which books they teach as a part of their regular curriculum. Yet, per the First Amendment, “they could be acting unconstitutionally if they decide to remove a book solely because of hostility to the ideas it contains.” Those who wish to ban books often hide behind the assertion that they include profane language or sexually explicit content. On more transparently discriminatory occasions, books are banned for confronting racism (Beloved by Toni Morrison) and including LGBTQ+ relationships and characters (All Boys Aren’t Blue by George M. Johnson). Children and teenagers, they argue, should not be subjected to such ideas. However, to even entertain these claims is to give credence to The Absolutely True Diary of a the dizzyingly arrogant concept that only these politicians, parents, Part-Time Indian by Sherman and school boards have the right to determine what literature is Alexie was the most banned book between 2010-2019 “appropriate” and worth sharing. It also ensures that centuriesold efforts to silence historically marginalized communities and perpetuate broken traditions continue. Essentially, banning books invalidates the experiences, ideas, and humanity of not only a book’s author, but the thousands of readers who find representation in its pages. This can be especially harmful to young readers, particularly teenagers, who need to understand that they are not alone in their feelings, experiences, or in their struggles. Nationwide, LGBTQ+, as well as BIPOC, students continue to face high rates of bullying and intolerance. For many students, reading may be the only opportunity they have to explore and connect with others over their identity. For many, reading is an act of survival. Banning books also prevents community members at large from educating themselves on the lived experiences, perspectives, and history of their peers. As understanding is the first step toward supporting a more equitable and diverse society, limiting young readers’ exposure to different ideas will only prove detrimental to all. Change will not happen if we cannot experience an uncensored exchange of ideas. Throughout history, totalitarian regimes have utilized censorship and the banning of books as means of controlling the public discourse. While this may appear to be an intense comparison, the basic concept and ramifications remain the same: if you limit a child’s exposure to different perspectives and ideas, they are at risk for growing up believing that only the dominant voices are valid. As a nation, as we continue to break down our society’s historic racism, misogyny, and homophobia, there will continue to be individuals who respond with intolerance and determination to maintain the unjust status quo. In the face of this, schools, libraries, and the general public have the responsibility to stand up and keep reading.

Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay By Daisy Scott / VOICE

“This is a memoir of (my) body because, more often than not, stories of bodies like mine are ignored or dismissed or derided. People see bodies like mine and make their assumptions. They think they know the why of my body. They do not.”

A

S VULNERABLE AS IT IS DARING, Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body by Roxane Gay redefines the creative and social potential of the memoir genre. Released in 2017, on the heels of her successful 2014 book of essays Bad Feminist, Gay tells her story with a sense of intimate immediacy peppered with pointed social commentary. What unfolds is an extremely personal tale that not only speaks to one woman’s journey, but emphasizes areas where we as a society can improve. When Gay was twelve years old, she was raped in the woods by a boy she liked and his group of friends. Faced with a very different story being circulated around her school, as well as the fear of her Writer and social commentator Roxane Gay family’s rejection, Gay kept the assault to herself. She ultimately turned to food as a coping mechanism, understanding that if she were to make herself physically larger that, by society’s standards, she would be “undesirable to men.” Readers follow Gay as she goes on to earn her Ph.D. and establish herself as a successful writer. All the while, she continues to face great internal struggles and evaluate her relationships with her family, romantic partners, her sexuality, food, and society, until the present day when she has gained the courage to be completely vulnerable with readers. While Gay’s story is unique to her, she maintains the powerful ability to relate her emotions, doubts, triumphs, and concerns in a manner that readers can connect with. She writes with a raw and thoughtful candidness, artistically structuring each chapter so its themes heighten and expand upon other sections. It comes as no surprise when Gay tells readers this memoir has been “the most difficult UCSB Arts & Lectures will host Roxane writing experience of my life.” Gay at the Granada Theatre at 7:30pm Further distinguishing Gay’s Friday, February 25th. For tickets ($26-41 general, UCSB students free) visit memoir is her ability to connect www.artsandlectures.ucsb.edu her personal experiences to larger societal shortcomings and observations. Gay reflects upon how our society judges and refuses to accommodate individuals it labels as “morbidly obese,” from having reality television shows about weight loss to medical bias. She also offers insightful commentary on the experiences women and Black people regularly face within this country. With Hunger: A Memoir of (My) Body, Gay surpasses the traditional expectations readers place upon memoirs. Her story offers vitally important insights through a deeply personal lens, forcing readers to reconsider multiple aspects of society that have been tolerated for far too long.

N HONOR OF VILLAGE PROPERTIES’ 25TH ANNIVERSARY, the independent real estate company is launching a rebrand of the firm. Originally founded in a single office along Coast Village Road, the company has expanded from 25 agents to its current team of 185 community members. The celebratory rebrand will affect all of the company’s marketing channels. “We are so proud of how far we’ve come as a company and as a team. We really wanted to honor this incredible achievement by taking time to do a deep exploration of our origins and values,” said the firm’s owner, Renee Grubb. “Through this rebranding effort, which we have rolled out over the past few months, we hope to communicate to the world what makes our community and Village Properties so special.” In 2021, the brokerage’s annual sales volume was $2.3 billion, accounting for almost a fifth of the region’s residential real estate market. Village Properties has hired 1000Watt to assist with the brand redesign, which includes a new logo, typeface, graphics, and color palette for its website, business cards, flyers, and more. By combining photos of the Santa Barbara area, local colors and motifs, and regional architecture and landscapes, the redesign speaks to the company’s history www.villagesite.com and current standing.

Vaccine Requirement Divides Area Law Enforcement Departments

A

VACCINE REQUIREMENT MAY FORCE THE REMOVAL OF 4,000 LA COUNTY SHERIFF DEPT. WORKERS. In response, the Kern County Sheriff issued a recruitment video which contrasts their opposing view to the vaccine requirement, their need for officers, and an invitation to apply, last week. The differences between vaccine requirements and anti-vaxxers was intensified by LA County Supervisors who moved to take vaccine enforcement away from Sheriff Alex Villanueva, last week, in the face of a 54 percent vaccination rate in his department. The county may terminate 4,000 deputies and workers under the new rules, which were opposed by Sheriff Villanueva, according to the LA Times. The recruitment video states, “So take back your freedom, and APPLY today to work at the Kern County Sheriff ’s Office. You deserve a job that welcomes you and your values, with open arms.” Kern county doesn’t require vaccinations for its workers. Its sheriff, Donny Youngblood, said in a press conference on Friday that he doesn’t know how many of his department’s deputies are vaccinated. Current statistics show 52 percent of Kern county residents are vaccinated, compared to 70 percent of LA county residents, according to the New York Times. COVID-19 was the number one cause of death for law enforcement officers in 2021, with 301 killed by COVID, according to the National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum. There was a 55 percent increase in officer deaths last year. The 301 is out of a preliminary total of the 458 federal, state, tribal, and local officers dying in the line-ofduty. Kern County law enforcement has a conservative reputation and in 2015 killed more people relative to its population than any other county in the U.S., according to The Guardian.

Santa Barbara International Film Festival

Festival Launch Press Conference

I

By Robert F. Adams, Special to VOICE

N THE ELEGANT DOWNTOWN SPACE of Sullivan-Goss: An American Gallery, Santa Barbara International Film Festival Executive Director Roger Durling welcomed press representatives for the 37th Festival launch event, on February 10th. Ambitious plans for an in-person festival with special events and programs were the focus. After a short welcome, Durling acknowledged Santa Barbara’s new mayor Randy Rowse and honored the Board of Directors, Phyllis de Picciotto the original founder of the Festival, and the hard-working SBIFF staff team. Presented by UGG®, the upcoming festival will be held from Wednesday, March 2nd through Saturday, March 12th. The programming will spotlight 48 World Premieres, 95 U.S. Premieres, with selected films originating in 54 countries.

Artist Hank Pitcher designed this year's poster.

Americana Heroism in the (Arlington) House

Sounds ABOUT TOWN By Josef Woodard

Symphonic Nature:

A

T THE RISK OF STRETCHING AN ANGLE, Italian-Santa Barbara links continue with this weekend’s eagerly awaited return (after last month’s postponed concert) of the Santa Barbara Symphony, helmed by Israeli/Italian/ American maestro Nir Kabaretti leading a particularly local-minded program on Saturday and Sunday at the Granada. Beethoven’s Sixth “Pastorale” Symphony justified the event’s title Composer Jeff Beal “Beethoven in Bloom,” but the key point of interest is The Great Circle, a new work by EMMY-bedecked Hollywood composer Jeff Beal, responding to the Thomas Fire and Montecito debris flow of 2018. Filling out the program, blessed by living female composer cred, is Jennifer Higdon’s Harp Concerto, with SBS harpist Michelle Temple upfront and duly spotlighted.

Americana icon Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit with special guest Shawn Colvin will play the Arlington on February 26th

NE INCIDENTAL POSITIVE ASPECT OF THE PANDEMIC (we do need to find and relish those) had to do with us great unwashed music fans gaining intimate access to artists deprived of life/work on stages. Case in point: as part of UCSB Arts & Lectures’ laudable streaming content during the 20-21 season lockdown, luminous and earthy-cool Americana icon Jason Isbell, joined by his gifted and empathic fiddler-vocalist wife Amanda Shires, serenaded us from their homey hoedown zone in the fall of 2020. It was a heartwarming and memorable visit to the inner, fancified barn-like studio from their family home. Somehow, we feel like we know them better and deeper now.

Shires broke the ice first in this exchange in the streamed-from-home show: She: This is the most fun I’ve had since February (2020). He: This is the most fun I’ve had. Ever.

SBS Principal Harpist Michelle Temple

She: Exclamation point. He: This is the most fun I’ve had in these pants. And I’ve had a lot of fun in these pants.

OR MUSIC-LOVERS WITH AN EAR BENT TOWARDS SOUNDS OF THE NEW – and living composer – varieties, the hot ticket tonight (Friday, February 18th) takes us to Hahn Hall, where the seasoned Camerata Pacifica is venturing back into the live music arena with a provocative, contemporary-colored program. Noted percussionist Ji Hye Jung is featured on a program including music, apart from the late, great Lou Harrison, by composers lacking a post-hyphen number after the birth year, e.g. Mark Applebaum (1967-).

Photo courtesy of Ji Hye Jung

During the personable set, including such jewels as What Have I Done to Help and If We Were Vampires (“Maybe we’ll get 40 years together/But one day, I’ll be gone, one day you’ll be gone”), the couple also dished up giddy banter. Isbell masters the melancholic and sensitive songwriter cause, along with his neo-Southern Rock impulses, but humor is a constant back pocket warmer.

As promised, Isbell was folded into A&L’s current series, bringing his band the 400 Unit to the Arlington Theater on Saturday, February 26th, with Shawn Colvin on the bill. After last month’s Punch Brothers show was canceled (thanks, omicron), the Isbell/400 show qualifies as 2022’s the first major league Americana concert in town. Isbell’s Santa Barbara history included another type of grand-yet-intimate show at the Luke Theater in 2013, going solo in the legendary “Sings like Hell” series. This time out, Isbell’s 400 Unit, his go-to band after leaving his careerlaunching Drive-By Truckers in the ‘00s, boasts two strong recent albums to bolster the set list – Reunions (2020) and the cover song fest of Georgia Blue (2021).

Special note: First Responders are invited to attend for free.

ERSATILE CLASSICAL-MEETS-JAZZ PIANIST ANTONIO ARTESE –who studied at UCSB many moons ago and has been involved with various Italian jazz and classical festivals, hits the Lobero Stage on Tuesday (2-2-22), with hyphenates in tow. Presented in conjunction with Opera Santa Barbara, the tellingly titled Two Worlds: Jazz/Opera showcases the Italian Artese’s piano trio (with local heroes Jim Connolly, bass, and Luis Munoz, drums). They will traverse and extemporize on operatic and jazz-based themes, in keeping with Artese’s twin reference points. Among Artese’s albums are Italian Sketches, Live in Santa Barbara, The Change, and Voyage, all solo. Now, enter trio mode.

Josef Woodard is a veteran cultural critic, who wrote for the Los Angeles Times for 25 years, has contributed to Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, DownBeat, and many music magazines, and a long association with the Santa Barbara Independent and NewsPress. To date, he has published two books for Silman-James Press, on jazz legends Charles Lloyd and Charlie Haden, respectively. He recently published a debut novel, Ladies Who Lunch.

Exploring Insights into Human Nature Health, Wellness, Longevity, and Work

W

HEN I FIRST HEARD THE WORD “techmanity” it quickly translated in my brain to its components – the words “technology” and “humanity.” What a fabulous new word! The concept of discussing the interface of technology and humanity must surely be a most philosophical invention. Interestingly, it is derived from the investment and financial worlds and, according to Bank of America Merrill Lynch, a “market worth more than $600 billion is set to emerge” in the coming years.

Precision Medicine is defined as “medical care designed to optimize efficiency or therapeutic benefit for particular groups of patients, especially by using genetic or molecular profiling.” The advances in cancer of a particular tumor’s genetic editing are making for novel therapeutic approaches that are effective in curtailing – and eventually preventing cancer. Prevention in genetic diseases is becoming more commonplace and the cost of genetic sequencing has become affordable. Future food solutions such as lab-grown meat and the rise of ‘flexitarian’ diets that reduce meat consumption may improve nutrition. In “Our World in Data” we can see the advances by following the change in life expectancies. The overall mortality rate in the United States declined markedly over the 20th century, resulting in large gains in life expectancy. In 1900, the average U.S. newborn could expect to live to 47.3 years of age. In 2010, they could expect to live more than 30 additional years of life, with a life expectancy at birth of 78.7. This statistic is improving, though pandemic COVID deaths put a temporary barrier in this trajectory.

Techmanity refers to companies and research that are proliferating in the areas of Artificial Intelligence, Big Angel Iscovich, MD Data, and genomics. These technological advances are being put to work by biotech, pharmaceutical, and life science companies. So, how will the market revolution caused by techmanity affect us? It will lead to a higher quality and length of life. Longevity will accompany personalized

It is believed that if you are born today you will have a 50 percent chance of living to 100 years of age.

Brian Patrick Green, a gerontologist at the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics at Santa Clara University, has concentrated on the potential consequences of this increased longevity. These issues include justice, access, and inequality. There is a lack of ethics regulations for genomics as evidenced in the case of the Chinese scientist that broke all sorts of societal norms to create the first gene-edited babies. As we live longer, we may exacerbate healthcare costs, cause overpopulation, change life insurance actuarial tables, make pension plan funding difficult, and possibly have a static elderly population requiring more care.

OCALLY-BASED NONPROFIT VITAMIN ANGELS focused their 2021 efforts on reducing the barriers to accessing essential nutrition that underserved pregnant women and children face in the U.S. and internationally. As a result, Vitamin Angels program partners were able to extend their health and nutrition services further than ever before. “Although 2021 was a tough year for our world, I am so proud of the Vitamin Angels team for continuing our work and expanding our reach to even more women and children who need essential nutrition the most,” said Howard Schiffer, Vitamin Angels Founder & President. “Our achievements wouldn’t have been possible without the support of our long-standing corporate partners and donors, whom gave more generously in 2021 than ever before.” At the conclusion of 2021, Vitamin Angels reached a total of 70 million underserved pregnant women and children in 65 countries, including all 50 U.S. states and Puerto Rico, through their network of 1,200 program partners. Specific initiatives that further expanded reach and supported program partners included expanding implementation research, strengthening monitoring and evaluation programs, and launching a monitoring and supervisory checklist for program partners. The organization also joined the Healthy Mothers Healthy Babies Consortium, and joined public health organizations in submitting a letter of support to WHO advocating for MMS (prenatal vitamins and minerals) to be added to the WHO Model List of Essential Medicines. Ultimately, MMS was added to this list. Vitamin Angels also experienced a 22 percent increase in corporate partnerships in 2021, and launched a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative.

NDERSTANDING THE IMPORTANCE OF QUALITY, COMPREHENSIVE SEXUAL AND REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH EDUCATION, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria has teamed with Planned Parenthood California Central Coast to host “Teen Talk.” A weekly virtual series offered to the college-bound girls involved with Girls Inc.’s Eureka! program, the talks will provide a evidence-informed, LGBTQ+ inclusive programming on sexuality and sexual health. “Girls deserve comprehensive education that empowers them to be healthy and take ownership of their sexual health,” said Jamie Collins, executive director of Girls Inc. Carpinteria. “We are proud to partner with Planned Parenthood California Central Coast to bring this virtual series to our girls to ensure they have the skills, knowledge, and support they need to make positive decisions and lead healthy, safe lives.” Girls Inc. has been providing sexual health educational programming in Carpinteria Unified schools and on its campus for the past 25 years. In addition to educating participants on sexuality and sexual health, Teen Talk will offer information on healthy relationships, sexually transmitted infections, birth control, and anatomy and physiology. It will also encourage parent and trusted adult communication. Each component of this series starts with a Parent Orientation and supports girls’ knowledge in four areas — Healthy Relationships, Sexuality Thumbprint, Sexual Health and Reproduction, and Sex, Media, and Technology. “Healthy Sexuality assists girls in understanding and embracing sexuality with a positive, empowered approach that is built on a foundation of accurate information, cultural sensitivity, and values of inclusiveness and respect,” reads a statement from Girls Inc.

SBIFF 10-10-10 FILM SPOTLIGHTS: Compiled by Daisy Scott

The Artificial Christian

C

ENTERING AROUND A CONVERSATION BETWEEN A PRIEST AND A GIRL CONVERTING TO CHRISTIANITY, The Artificial Christian questions the nature of change within religion. Written, directed, and edited by Atticus Fehr, a University of Texas at Austin freshman, the film will be screened Film still from The Artificial Christian at the 37th Santa Barbara International Film Festival. “The short to me at its base surrounds the questions of whether or not religion can change and develop,” explained Fehr. “In my short film, a young girl comes into conflict with a priest when she disagrees with parts of his beliefs. The priest grapples with the idea of a different perception of his teachings and is ultimately unable to accept it. For me this stemmed from the conflict I have seen in the modernization of religion in the cultures around me. People seem to be divided between the two views of religion, one that develops and changes with new beliefs and discoveries, and another which refuses to adapt. The short is about the clash of those two identities.” Fehr was inspired to apply to the 10-10-10 Program after he interned with SBIFF as a Villanova Preparatory School student. At the festival, he experienced the joy of creative people coming together to support each other, and knew he wanted to participate. Fehr plans to pursue a career in the film industry, and holds the goal of having one of his films screened at SBIFF. His works can be viewed at www.Atticusfehr.com

Dreams in Black and White

A

N EXPLORATION OF RELATIONSHIPS’ TEMPORAL NATURE, Dreams in Black and White examines how an individual can let go of the past. Directed by Mark Candore, a third year transfer student at California State University Long Beach, the film will be shared with the community at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. “I am inspired by the style of Terrence Malick’s films, which are less plot-driven and more focused on bringing emotions to the visual forefront,” said Candore. “It’s the visual poetry I love. All sorts of relationships, I think, can fit into this style.” Formerly a Santa Barbara City College student, Candore was motivated to join the 10-10-10 Program in order to gain valuable insights and advice from industry mentors. Over his time with the program, he has greatly enjoyed being able to collaborate and network with other filmmakers. Ultimately, he is eager to positively impact the film industry, whether that be as a director or an Director Mark Candore innovator. “I just want to say a huge thanks to my crew and cast for this collaborative effort,” shared Candore. “Filmmaking is the most collaborative art form there is, and it is a shame that people tend to only focus on the actors or directors. We all rely on each other’s strengths to bring out the best in our art.”

Rona Barrett Foundation Partners to Build Harry’s House

An architectural rendering of Harry’s House

N KEEPING WITH ITS MISSION TO PROVIDE AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND SUPPORTIVE SERVICES FOR SENIORS IN NEED, The Rona Barrett Foundation has partnered with the Housing Authority of the County of Santa Barbara to build Harry’s House. Located at 890 Refugio Rd. in Santa Ynez, Harry’s House will be a new Independent Congregate Care Facility for low-income seniors and complete The Golden Inn and Village Master Plan. “I’m thrilled to see the large construction trucks already on the property,” said Rona Barrett, founder and CEO/President of The Rona Barrett Foundation. “This means the last phase of The Golden Inn and Village campus in Santa Ynez is now underway.” Harry’s House will include 60 studio apartments in a two-story building. Its construction will complete RBF’s vision for a community where senior residents can experience a continuum of care that meets their needs as they age in place. The location’s services will include offering meals, activities, transportation, and oversight for individuals who would benefit from a more supportive environment. This will let more frail seniors be served on site, prolonging their independence and delaying the need for higher levels of care in a medical setting. RBF and HASBARCO have teamed with The Parsons Group, manager for Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara’s Garden Court and Gardens, to develop these services. “Our goal is to provide a new reality in which income limited seniors can expect housing, services and socialization that are commensurate with private pay models,” said Barrett. “We can no longer settle for treating those who have less, as any less deserving of a safe and supportive home in which to enjoy their golden years.” www.ronabarrettfoundation.org

SB Maritime Museum Partners with Girl Scouts to Host Weekend Cookie Sales

I

T’S THIN MINTS AND PEANUT BUTTER PATTIES SEASON ONCE AGAIN, and the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum is partnering with the Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast to support their cookie sales through March 13th. Every Saturday and Sunday between 10am to 6pm, excluding February 26th and 27th, girl scouts will be selling cookies on the museum patio. Every cookie purchase goes toward opportunities for girls to learn, grow, and explore. All proceeds from SBMM sales will remain in the local community to support our region’s girl scouts. “The Girl Scout Cookie program fuels local Girl Scouts’ adventures throughout the year: exploring what interests them, discovering their passions, and taking action on issues they care about,” said Tammie Helmuth, Girl Scouts CEO for this area. “The museum can be a part of that for them. Having a Girl Scout cookie booth here is a great fit.” To learn more about the Girl Scouts of California’s Central Coast, visit www.girlscoutsccc.org

KCSB FM Celebrates 60th Anniversary

L

ED BY UCSB STUDENTS AND COMMUNITY DRIVEN, KCSB is the oldest of all University of California radio stations. In honor of its 60th anniversary, the station is hosting its annual fund drive from February 9th-18th, and will hold a KCSB programmer reunion in late April. “Founder Bill Harrision, then a student at UC Santa Barbara, launched KCSB in his dorm room in 1962,” states KCSB’s announcement. “Today its signal on 91.9 FM covers most of Santa Barbara County and portions of Ventura and San Luis Obispo Counties.” With studios located at the base of Storke Tower on UCSB campus, most of KCSB’s on-air hosts are students, faculty, and university staff, with other community volunteers sometimes getting involved. It has been a valuable source of information over the years, from covering student demonstrations in Isla Vista in the 1970s to sharing the current leadership team: Program Director latest COVID-19 updates amidst the KCSB’s Diana Escamilla, General Manager Zena Omar, and pandemic. The station also features Assistant Program Director Al Simpkins music programming and public affairs coverage, and provides valuable experience to aspiring broadcast journalists and radio hosts. “I never would have imagined that KCSB would have evolved into what it is today,” said station founder Bill Harrison. During the station’s annual fund drive, listeners are encouraged to donate to the station online, with the opportunity to purchase KCSB merch. In April, KCSB will welcome current and former programmers for a reunion, with all individuals who have worked with KCSB over the past 60 years invited to attend. Details will be released via the KCSB email newsletter. Courtesy photo

Oak Park Dance Floor Restoration Project to Last through April

T

HE 96 YEARS-OLD DANCE FLOOR AT OAK PARK WILL RECEIVE MUCH-NEEDED CARE this spring as the City of Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department continues the floor’s restoration project. Through early April, the dance floor will be closed to undergo comprehensive waterproofing, evaluation and replacement of lumber, the removal and replacement of all visible framing, and more. The historic structure is the site of regularly hosted dance and fitness classes, and is a part of community celebrations held in the park. It was originally built for a gala honoring Prince George of England hosted by the Campbell family in Goleta. It was transferred to Oak Park after a local farmer purchased it at auction following Col. Colin Campbell’s death in 1941.

Intro to Reparations:

a primer for community conversation

T

By James Joyce III, Special to VOICE

HE WORDS THAT FOLLOW are not intended to make a case for reparations, per se. There are countless essays, articles, and books that do a great job of that. One such, in the June 2014 issue of The Atlantic, American journalist and scholar, Ta-Nehisi Coates, renewed the contemporary push for reparations, arguing that until America truly reckons with its compounding moral debt whose principal is chattel slavery, our nation will never be whole. However, in observing the birth of the Tea Party movement and growth through its adolescent rebellion via the January 6, 2021 insurrection, one thing that has become abundantly clear is that reparations for descendants of enslaved Americans will do little to advance our society if the majority of the population harbors a resentment that comes from a genuine lack of understanding. An ideal approach to such atonement, would include both financial and educational components. The concept may seem relatively new to some, but to know American history is to understand that as emancipation spread in the 19th Century, the formerly enslaved did make demands for compensation for generations of unpaid labor. Those demands were most notably inscribed in Special Field Order 15, issued on January 16, 1865 by Union General William T. Sherman. This order came in the final months of the American Civil war and just days after the Ohio-born West Point graduate, General Sherman met with a group of 20 Black ministers on the topic. The ensuing military order to confiscate hundreds of thousands of acres of Atlantic coastal property in three states for formerly enslaved Black families to settle, gave birth to the concept of 40-acres and a mule. Those reparative efforts were stymied a few weeks later following the assassination of President Abe Lincoln. In 1989, 124 years later, with a nod to the unfulfilled promise of the 40-acres and a mule concept, U.S. Representative John Conyers (D-Mich), introduced what is now House Resolution 40. H.R. 40 is the federal proposal to establish a commission to study the effects of slavery and discriminatory policies on African Americans and recommend appropriate remedies, Community Conversation On Thursday, February 24th, starting at 6pm, community members will have an opportunity to get a better understanding of reparations as Coffee with a Black Guy presents Reparations 101, a community conversation. For this free virtual community offering, Coffee with a Black Guy founder James Joyce III will be joined in conversation by Kamilah Moore, the reparatory justice scholar and attorney who chairs the CA Reparations Task Force; Laura Pitter, deputy director of Human Rights Watch’s U.S. Program, and UCSB senior, Mekhi Mitchell, diversity and equity advocate for the UCSB Office of Black Student Development who will share some of his senior research thesis project to help frame the community conversation.

including reparations. In his spark that renewed the call for reparations, Coates highlighted H.R. 40 in his 2014 article; pointing out that despite it being introduced each congressional session, little progress had been made. When the late, Rep. Conyers retired in 2017, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) picked up the torch in introducing the federal proposal calling for a commission to study reparations. Finally, in 2021, for the first time in three decades, H.R. 40 passed out of committee and is positioned for a vote on the floor of Congress. Parallel to the federal efforts for reparations, a few local governments have entered the conversation. In 2019 the city council in Evanston, Ill., a suburb of Chicago, approved a reparations program that is a restorative housing effort that provides $25,000 for some Black residents of the city for a home loan down payment, mortgage, or home repairs. The first group for recipients through a drawing began receiving notification in recent weeks. In the summer of 2021, a group of eleven mayors led by those from Los Angeles and Denver, pledged to pay reparations for slavery to groups of Black residents. That followed statewide efforts in California the year prior when the legislature approved Assembly Bill 3121, a bill that established a task force to study and develop reparations proposals for African Americans, the first state to take such a measure. California’s nine-member reparations task force consists of both Gubernatorial and legislative appointees who are tasked with engaging communities throughout the state as they form a final proposal to be presented to the legislature by July 1, 2023. It appears that the movement for reparations for descendants of enslaved Americans has advanced further in the past 30 years than it has since emancipation. And while the topic may make some people uncomfortable, the best way through discomfort is through it. Let’s dive into the conversation to learn the facts and concerns. Reparations is a viable path forward through to greater racial understanding. It’s a model that has been used in the past, both domestically and abroad.

EconomicVOICE Is Inflation So Scary? T CAN BE NO SURPRISE that retail prices have risen 7.5 percent in a year as reported today, Feb. 10th, by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and in the FRED chart. COVID-19 has scared financial markets and some three million workers from returning to their pre-pandemic jobs. The question is what can be done about it? “The all items index rose 7.5 percent for the twelve months ending January, the largest twelvemonth increase since the period ending February 1982, said the BLS. The all items less food and energy index rose 6.0 percent, the largest twelvemonth change since the period ending August 1982. The energy index rose 27.0 percent over the last year, and the food index increased 7.0 percent.” Part of the confusion is what has contributed to it. Studies show that it’s mainly worker shortages due to Omicron, countries slow to recover that are part of the disrupted supply chains, and consumers with lots of savings due to pandemic aid. The hope is that the Fed can tame some of the inflation by raising interest rates and

making borrowing more expensive, which is the conventional tool to cool down activity. But the ultimate inflation cure is when the Omicron and any other COVID-19 variant eventually morphs from a pandemic into an endemic virus, like the flu. In fact, Omicron variant infections are declining faster than expected. As of February 2, 2022, the current seven-day moving average of daily new cases (378,015) decreased -37.6 percent compared with the previous seven-day moving average (605,735), the CDC’s COVID Tracker reported. Omicron infections are sharply down from the more than 800,000 at its peak in January. At this tempo, it could be back to last October’s rate of approximately 100,000 daily new cases in March, per the CDC. More good news is that 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

There are many parts to the inflation puzzle, but it’s probably safe to say that once the fear of Omicron begins to subside and more economic activity kicks in, that will further boost employment—such as from infrastructure spending over the next five years that repairs and upgrades the roads, bridges, energy grids, and water systems, and inflation will subside.

Tree-of-the-Month, February 2022:

Evergreen Pear Pyrus kawakamii

HE EVERGREEN PEAR CREATES A REMARKABLE DISPLAY of blossoms in midwinter, when many other trees are dormant and quite bare. Ushering in the first hint of spring, this lovely tree will be completely covered by its white flowers. Afterwards, it will mimic a snowy winter, as its flower petals fall - gracefully as snowflakes - to cover the ground in blowing drifts. In summer and fall, its shining leaves will provide cooling shade over a broad area. Truly a tree for all seasons! In late January to February, delicate flowers (¾-inch in diameter) appear in large clusters that are attached to the branches on short, terminal branchlets. Bees and butterflies love the nectar and pollen feast. After pollination, the flowers produce small (1-inch) round, though seldom-seen, bronze-colored fruits. These are inedible for humans - consequently, Evergreen Pear is considered an “ornamental” pear tree. Fortunately, birds do find the fruits delicious. In the summer, when not in bloom, Evergreen Pear Flowers the tree is still attractive, because it fills its dense canopy with glossy, yellow-green, leathery, ovate leaves (three-inches long and two-inches wide), bearing wavy, finely tooted, margins and a pointed tip. In the fall, it develops its prized and colorful foliage display: the leaves will turn fiery red, mixed with bright yellow and orange. Technically, it is not an “evergreen” tree; it is semi-deciduous - and may drop all leaves after a freeze. Evergreen Pear is a small- to medium-sized tree that, under ideal conditions, can grow to 30-feet in height with an equal spread. However, it is usually maintained in a smaller size, because it can easily be shaped to serve as an ideal courtyard or patio tree. In any size, its naturally irregular growth habit does require early pruning, in order to give the tree an upright form and symmetrical crown. Be careful not to over-prune or to thin the canopy too much. Evergreen Pear Bark A mature tree is distinguished from younger ones by its deeply furrowed, dark brown to gray bark, which is arranged in a blocked pattern. The Evergreen Pear is native to temperate areas in China and Taiwan. Its botanical name is Pyrus kawakamii. The genus name, Pyrus, is from the Latin word “pirus,” meaning “pear tree,” which was derived from the Greek word “pir,” meaning the element of fire. The specific epithet, kawakamii, was given by the botanist Bunzo

Hayata (1874-1934) to honor his fellow Japanese botanist, Takija Kawakami (18711915), who was the National Botanist for Formosa (now Taiwan). It is in the Rosaceae (Rose) family. For a long time, Evergreen Pear was considered rare in our area. In the 1940s, only one was noted in the local horticultural literature - a single tree that stood on the grounds of Westmont College. In Evergreen Pear the 1960s, 1800 blocks of Garden Street and on the 900 to 1300 Evergreen Pear began to be generally available blocks of East Gutierrez Street. They can also be seen commercially. Since then, it has been used on Ferrara Way and Palermo Drive (in Hidden Valley), extensively here both as a street tree and as a on Barranca Way (on the Mesa), and on Eileen Way and landscape tree.

Fire Blight is a bacterial disease that causes the ends of twigs to appear as if they had been badly scorched by fire. It can be controlled, reasonably well, just by pruning out affected twigs. Fungal Leaf Spot, rarely a big problem, can be controlled with copper-based fungicides that, surprisingly, also help control Fire Blight.

An Intimate Glimpse Into a Local Icon

I

By Daisy Scott / VOICE

MMERSING VISITORS IN THE RICH TALENT AND HISTORY OF ONE OF SANTA BARBARA’S MOST INTRIGUING YET LARGELY UNDERAPPRECIATED WOMEN ARTISTS, Huguette Marcelle Clark: A Portrait of the Artist presents a uniquely insightful viewing experience. The first exhibition of Clark’s artwork since 1931, the intimate gallery deftly pairs information with 13 paintings to provide a comprehensive overview of Clark’s life and work. Presented in collaboration with the Bellosguardo Foundation, it will remain on display at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum through June 12th. “We wanted to show the breadth of Huguette Clark’s talent,” said Dacia Harwood, Santa Barbara Historical Museum Director. “She lived a fascinating life, and we’ve learned more about her time in our community while preparing this exhibition.”

honor of her deceased older sister.

Ever inspired and moved by art, Clark avidly studied painting, with portraitist Tadeusz Styka acting as her teacher. Her works were eventually displayed at the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington D.C. as well as in Paris. Locally, Clark painted at her estate and downtown at Meridian Studios on East De la Guerra Street, next to where her exhibition is featured at the SB Historical Museum almost 90 years later. She also participated in a local artists’ show at the Santa Barbara Public Library’s Faulkner Gallery.

Untitled [Self Portrait while Painting], by Huguette Clark

Born in 1906, Huguette Clark was the daughter of senator and copper tycoon William A. Clark. She grew up between Paris and New York, where her father maintained a 121-room mansion that included five art galleries that welcomed the public for tours. Then, in 1923, William Clark purchased the Bellosguardo estate in Santa Barbara, launching her artistic and personal connection to the community. Many locals may know her name from the Andrée Clark Bird Refuge, which she established in

Viewers can immediately appreciate the great artistic skill and historic significance of Clark’s work upon entering Huguette Marcelle Clark: A Portrait of the Artist. All of her paintings possess a distinctive, gauzy aura, utilizing soft lighting and brushstrokes to heighten the intimacy of the depicted scenes. The majority of the works displayed center on female subjects, Untitled [Portrait of Ballerina] by Huguette Clark including two delicate nudes, a graceful ballerina, and several piercing selfportraits. Seemingly determined to portray each woman as an individual, Clark’s portraits center on one figure at a time, with great care and attention to detail given to their facial expressions and sense of movement. There is even a portrait of a Spanish dancer, pointing to Clark and her mother’s involvement with Santa Barbara’s annual Old Spanish Days celebrations. Multiple paintings also highlight Clark’s appreciation for Japanese culture, showing Japanese women wearing traditional garb. Accompanying these paintings are historic images and newspaper clippings that grant visitors glimpses into Clark’s accomplishments and work. There is also a slideshow of photographs that have never been shared with the public before. The slideshow spans Clark’s childhood into her adult life, allowing her story to unfold in a personal and informative manner. The SB Historical Museum has also opened its Lockwood de Forest: Lighting the Way exhibition in the adjacent gallery room. As many of de Forest’s landscape paintings depict familiar sights, including the Old Mission and East Beach, the exhibition pairs beautifully with Clark’s showcase to create a wholly local artistic experience. Community members can also anticipate an upcoming talk presented by author Bill Dedman, who wrote a biography about Clark titled Empty Mansions, at 5:30pm on Wednesday, March 16th. Hosted at the museum, general admission is $20, $15 for museum members. To register visit the museum’s website. Untitled [Portrait of Japanese Woman Arranging Flowers] by Huguette Clark

GETTING TO KNOW

W

HILE ONLY A HANDFUL OF HIS PAINTINGS FOCUS ON SUNFLOWERS AS THE MAIN SUBJECT, Vincent van Gogh’s name has become permanently linked with this sunny, happy flower. Floral still lifes were all the rage when van Gogh was studying art, and he recognized that they provided a unique opportunity for him to explore and practice color theories. This interest in using brighter colors was inspired by the Impressionist movement, including works like Peonies, by Édouard Manet, (right). However, ever the creative non-conformist, van Gogh was compelled to specifically capture sunflowers’ vibrancy, even though many considered them simplistic and provincial. “I find comfort in contemplating the sunflowers,” he wrote to fellow artist Émile Bernard in 1888. Van Gogh’s appreciation of sunflowers reached a delightful peak when artist Paul Gauguin came to live with him. Upon hearing that Gauguin liked his sunflower works, van Gogh crafted his now-famous sunflower paintings and decorated Gauguin’s bedroom Édouard Manet (French, 1832–1883), with them. At van Gogh’s funeral, many Peonies, 1864–65. Oil on canvas, 23 3/8 × 13 7⁄8 mourners brought sunflowers. in. The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Bequest of Joan Image courtesy of SB Museum of Art
