Reif, who until recently was Resident Conductor at the San Francisco Symphony, will lead the Symphony through two of Mozart’s most celebrated compositions. Composed near the end of his life, Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito, adapted by Caterino Mazzolà from Pietro Metastasio’s original of 1735, was created to celebrate the Coronation Day of Emperor Leopold II.

By Mark M. Whitehurst, PhD / VOICE


AKING STORIES THAT MAKE SENSE AND A LITTLE BREAD TOO, Noah benShea will bring his wit and wisdom to the Marjorie Luke in a conversation called “An Evening with Noah benShea and Jacob the Baker.” benShea is a local resident and Jacob is an igneous and jocose character in benShea’s books. While it may be hard to tell who is who, for sure the talk will begin at 7:30pm on February 11th. benShea took some of his precious time to answer a few questions from VOICE via email this week.

VOICE: When did you know you were going to be a poet philosopher? NOAH benSHEA: I had been selected for a US State Department program and was in Calcutta on the eve of my 21st birthday. That night I knew the calling. VOICE: Do you have a favorite philosopher? benSHEA: I have two favorite Noah benShea philosophers: my mother and my father. Their teaching was that love, family, and caring are triumphant. VOICE: What do you enjoy most about writing ~ about Jacob or through his voice? benSHEA: (Noah benShea in the voice of Jacob the Baker) “Jacob the Baker is a reed. And the breath of God blows through him. Makes music of him. My pleasure is also my prayer. And my prayer is that my work will be a source of strength to others... Of all the things you can make in life, why not make a difference.” VOICE: Do you have a big dream for the world? benSHEA: In the land of big dreams, our work isn’t what we do, but who we are. In the latest Jacob book, We Are All Jacob’s Children, please find this ‘big dream’: “People of all faiths are of one faith, if their religion is kindness.” – (Noah benShea in the voice of Jacob the Baker)

VOICE: When interviewed, what question do you most enjoy being asked? benSHEA: I don’t know if this is the question I most like being asked, but it is surely the question I am most often asked: “Are you and Jacob the same person?” And my reply is: “Yes, Jacob and I are the same person, except I am the one with character flaws.” Now that Jacob and I have been together for fifty years, I find that this reply still holds true. VOICE: Finally, an open ended question: Is there anything in particular you would like to tell our readers? benSHEA: To your readers from an ally on the journey, perhaps give this meditation your pause and reflection: In gratitude find prayer. In prayer find faith. In faith find grace. In grace find peace. In peace find gratitude. - Noah benShea / We Are All Jacob’s Children VOICE: How would you describe your process for writing? benSHEA: Many years ago I woke up in a hotel room in London and discovered next to my bed this note scribbled in my hand, “I write things wiser than I am.” My “process for writing” begins with slipping the bonds of ego. Aristotle wrote, “Honesty is the portal to all wisdom.” Well, if honesty is the portal to all honesty; humility is the portal to all honesty. Noah benShea is a Pulitzer Prize-nominated, internationally best-selling author of 28 books that have been translated into 18 languages, including the Jacob The Baker series. In these books, the central figure is Jacob The Baker, a poor but pious baker living an anonymous life in a timeless world. While waiting for the ovens to heat, Jacob writes notes to himself, trying to make sense of life to himself. One morning while waiting for the ovens to warm, one of his notes fell into the dough and was baked in a loaf of bread. The woman who bought the bread is profoundly moved and rushes to the bakery to see who wrote it. Word spread rapidly and soon people from the village and from far and wide came to the bakery to seek Jacob’s wisdom and teachings. This event is sponsored by VNA Health, Gerd and Peter Jordano, and Naomi and Ben Bollag. The Mind, Body & Soul Series is sponsored by Cottage Health, Pacifica Graduate Institute, and VNA Health. For general seating tickets to this family-friendly event ($25), call 800-838-3006 or visit www.luketheatre.org.

El componente espiritual de la muerte y el morir y por qué es importante


Por David Selberg, CEO Hospice of SB

A ESPIRITUALIDAD SIGNIFICA COSAS DIFERENTES PARA DIFERENTES PERSONAS. La religión y la fe pueden ser parte de la espiritualidad de alguien, pero la espiritualidad no siempre es religiosa. Todos tienen necesidades espirituales a lo largo de sus vidas y esto puede ser en forma de un “poder superior,” una conexión con el universo, la naturaleza, el arte, etc. y puede guiar nuestra brújula ética y moral a medida que avanzamos en la vida. En Hospice of Santa Barbara, el cuidado espiritual ha sido una parte integral de nuestro trabajo desde nuestros inicios y está disponible cuando un paciente, un familiar o un cuidador lo solicitan. Este trabajo puede llevarse a cabo en nuestras oficinas, en hogares de clientes y en centros de atención, incluyendo Sarah House y centros locales de enfermería especializada. Los consejeros de cuidado espiritual exploran los problemas espirituales que rodean el final de la vida y brindan consultas sobre el significado, la esperanza, el aislamiento y la pérdida. Ofrecen un lugar abierto y honesto para la revisión y reconciliación de la vida, que puede incluir arrepentimientos y perdón. También pueden abordar las preocupaciones sobre la muerte, el sufrimiento de antemano y lo que sucede después. El cuidado espiritual puede permitir a los moribundos una liberación del sufrimiento y una sensación de paz en sus últimos días. También puede ser importante para aquellos que buscan respuestas y consuelo como resultado de la pérdida de un ser querido y es un componente de nuestros servicios de apoyo para el duelo. Hospice of Santa Barbara también puede referir, coordinar y volver a conectar a las personas con sus propias comunidades religiosas para rituales o ritos espirituales específicos. “El Cuidado Espiritual está aquí para apoyar a las personas y las familias a medida que comienzan

a procesar estas preguntas sin ninguna agenda,” explicó nuestra Consejera de Cuidado Espiritual, Rev. Kristen Rohm, sobre nuestro programa de Cuidado Espiritual. “Creamos un espacio seguro para que participen y enfrenten lo que temen, y gradualmente hagan las paces con él. Las tradiciones religiosas tienen varias respuestas y estrategias para estos problemas, y son de gran y efectivo apoyo y consuelo para muchos. También pueden causar estrés o miedo para unos pocos. El cuidado espiritual ayuda a las personas a conectarse más profundamente con lo que funciona para ellos y a procesar o liberar lo que no funciona. Utilizamos cualquier lenguaje sagrado y prácticas espirituales que la persona usa, siguiendo sus creencias únicas y apoyando y alentando su fe.” Con todo esto en mente, me complace anunciar un próximo componente educativo para la espiritualidad—un enfoque en diferentes tradiciones religiosas relacionadas con la muerte y el morir como parte de nuestra serie “Learn @ Lunch” (Aprende durante el almuerzo) en Hospice of Santa Barbara. Hospice of Santa Barbara organizará ocho sesiones los viernes a la hora del almuerzo, cada una con un líder de una tradición religiosa diferente para abordar la muerte y el morir desde esa perspectiva. Cada uno revisará las preocupaciones, creencias y rituales comunes en torno a los problemas y prácticas al final de la vida dentro de su tradición. Trae tu almuerzo y únete a Hospice of Santa Barbara para esta serie gratuita y continua, que se llevará a cabo de 12 a 1pm, el tercer viernes de cada mes. La oficina está ubicada en 2050 Alameda Padre Serra # 100. El punto de reunión será la sala de conferencias. El próximo “Learn @ Lunch,” como parte de esta serie, es el viernes, 21 de febrero con Art Cisneros, Líder Chumash y “Firekeeper.” Será seguido por la Rev. Elizabeth Molitors, Rectora Protestante de la Iglesia Episcopal Trinity, el viernes, 20 de marzo; Pravrajika Vrajaprana del Templo Vedanta, el viernes, 17 de abril; y el Cantor Mark Childs de la Congregación B’nai Brith el viernes, 15 de mayo. El espacio es limitado. Reserva tu lugar para las presentaciones de “Learn @ Lunch” llamando al 805-563-8820. Cuídate,

David Selberg CEO, Hospice of SB

Harbor VOICE Superbowl Sunday: A Day at the Beach By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE


Photos by Sigrid Toye

HE AFTERNOON WAS SO BEAUTIFUL on Super Bowl Sunday, I decided to visit the Shoreline Cafe on Leadbetter Beach during a period of guaranteed absolute quiet throughout the city - football fans were MIA glued to their TV, munching on Hot Wings, and knocking back a Cold One... basically off the streets. With an unmistakeable and ideal location situated right on the sand, one of the Shoreline’s many benefits is a spectacular view, access to the parking lot, and a full bar! Now how welcoming is that? The sun was beginning its decent as General Manager, Cameron Pyles, was kind enough to sit down with me to tell me a little about the restaurant. “This is our 23rd year,” he stated proudly, “and our owner, Steve Marsh, offers a menu of California and Baja style cuisine with lots of choices for a variety of tastes.” All day beach favorites include calamari, ceviche, fish and chips, and a selection of juicy burgers Cameron Pyles (including a vegan burger for the faint of heart). The seafood choices are, with few exceptions, from local waters. Should the temperature drop, a warm seafood soup or a clam chowder bread bowl are always ready for a quick warm up. For the early morning risers among us, breakfast is also available with everything from traditional favorites to Baja specials. To top it off, if I had wanted to grab take-out for the Super Bowl fans at my house, there’s a snack bar at the front of the restaurant. Now I’d say that’s full service! The Shoreline Cafe opened its doors in 1997 under the ownership of a trio of well know Santa Barbara restauranteurs, including Randy Rowse, Kevin Boss, and Steve Marsh. Over the years, ownership eventually landed in the hands of Marsh who continues to expand and improve the menu and the facility. “Steve often took trips to Baja,” noted Pyles, “which definitely adds zest to our California style cuisine.” As he escorted me to the newest patio expansion and bar extending to the sand with a separate section devoted to beach chairs for relaxation and cocktails, he added with a chuckle, “Although we have a full bar, believe it or not, Corona is still our best seller.” The beach chairs and the ambiance of the late afternoon made me want to order one myself! Although a native of Santa Barbara, Pyles found his way to Los Angeles where he was employed in the hospitality business developing restaurants. “Steve is a family friend and although I wasn’t in any way dissatisfied in L.A., he convinced me to come back to Santa Barbara as a manager,” Pyles noted. He is hoping to continue at the Shoreline Cafe learning from Marsh and to become increasingly involved. He related that it is Santa Barbara residents who sustain the restaurant, some coming in three to four times a week, though during the summer months the eatery attracts out of town visitors and tourists. Its proximity to the harbor and the fact that it is one of the few dining spots directly on the sand, accessible to the beach, makes it a popular location. And as it states on the menu, “Life is better at the beach… right on Leadbetter Beach, Shoreline Cafe is the perfect place...”

CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST PLAINS ALL AMERICAN PIPELINE by Santa Barbara County property owners who have easement contracts with Plains and whose properties were impacted during the 2015 Refugio oil spill was certified by United States District Court Judge Philip Gutierrez, on Jan. 28th. The property owners are represented by Cappello & Noël LLP, Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein LLP and Keller Rohrback LLP, with Barry Cappello acting as lead trial counsel. In 1991, Plains predecessor, Celeron Pipeline Company of California, built pipelines on 130 miles of private property to transport crude oil and other liquids from the California coast to inland refinery markets in California. At the time, property owners signed easement contracts allowing Lines 901 and 903 pipelines to be built on their property. Notification of the class certification will be sent to all affected property owners. The law firms mentioned above are also representing two other certified subclasses against Plains involving the oil spill: fisheries and beachfront and beach easement property owners/renters. They also are seeking compensation for 500 oil workers who were terminated from their jobs on the oil platforms and onshore facilities when Plains shut down the pipeline.

Scholarship Foundation of SB Selects CFO


MY China


By Beverley Jackson, Special to VOICE

INCE I’M BASICALLY KNOWN FOR WRITING ON CHINA, not my other writings, due to the five books I have written about it and my Chinese collections. And, since everything being written daily about China right now is very negative, I’ll write some vignettes about MY China which started in 1974. A woman with whom I worked on Santa Barbara Border in 1975 between China and New territories charity projects with Pearl Chase, Lily Wen, started it all. Lily saw me write shorthand notes at meetings, and although I was a student of Italian Renaissance painting, she remembered me saying I had great interest in China, just so that I could walk on the Great Wall. So one bright day, I got a phone call from the late actress, Jayne Meadows, saying that Lily had been to China to visit her mother (it was unheard of getting in and out of China back then as the Cultural Revolution was still raging) and she found out that they were holding the first annual Tientsin Carpet Fair and they wanted ten Americans. They only had countries like Romania, Bulgaria, Hungry etc. representing so far, so Lily and her friend Jayne, and Jayne’s husband, the ultra talented Steve Allen, quickly formed a carpet company, and Lily had Jayne call to see if I wanted to be one of the ten as secretary of their new company. I never said YES so fast in my life, not giving a thought to what the trip would involve. This was the proverbial invitation of a lifetime. Next thing I knew, I was one of the ten and chugging into the New Territories from Hong Kong heading to the entry/customs into China on an old train with a steam engine in February 1975 with Jayne and Lily singing Hello Dolly in Mandarin. That’s where it all began, and many fascinating trips to China Wall around Ping Yao alone were to follow. On one of the trips, I traveled with Tamara Kinsell. Tamara is a wonderful travel companion. I have refused many people who asked to go with me on one of my trips. Tamara agreed to go anywhere I dreamed up for us to visit. One place I dragged her to was the remote ancient city of Ping Yao, in central Shaanxi. What we went through to get there! But that’s a whole story in itself. Jayne Meadows and Steve Allen at Ping Yao is a UNESCO site, but doesn’t get the tourist mobs the carpet fair. He recorded everything most of them do, although the general area became known during the trip for a book he wrote. world wide through the great film Raise the Red Lantern, which was filmed in the general area. Ping Yao is the only city in China that still retains its original walls totally surrounding the city. I had been fortunate enough to get to Peking that first trip while one section of their City Wall still stood, as did several of the towers of the wall. In fact, I had the thrill of seeing camel caravans from the north still plodding into Peking, now known as Beijing. But back to Ping Yao. Almost nothing had been changed. The houses and shops were the same. However, a few of the mansion compounds were intact, but had been turned into very simple, barely modern bed and baths for rent. It was truly a step back in time, way back. Incidentally, Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA bought a great old compound a few years ago from that area and had it totally restored by workers they brought from China so it would be done authentically. No nails. Well worth visiting if you are in the Boston area. Another great China memory was seeing the army of seven thousand 2,000 year old terra cotta soldiers in China’s Shaanxi province, found in 1974, almost the first time outsiders were allowed to see them. My reaction? I was so overwhelmed, I just stood there crying. The soldiers guarded the tomb of Emperor Qin Shi Huang 221 to 210 BCE, and interestingly, an additional two hundred soldiers, as well as a large number of weapons have just been uncovered as they continue excavating the massive tomb area. These soldiers are said to be sculpted in Me with two children in Ping Yao. two positions, either clutching pole weapons with their right arms bent and fists partially clenched, or carrying bows. They were arranged in different positions in the pit according to their military tasks. And all of the 200 figures found so far are distinctly individual - their facial features, hair styles, and expressions on their faces. All because a Chinese farmer digging a well in 1974 struck something strange, fragments of a clay figure that looked like a soldier. I can’t wait to see/read what new treasures they find that were buried in the tomb. I actually have Zhou Enlai, the first Premiere of the People’s Republic of China to thank for all of this. But that is a very special piece of information that you’ll have to wait to read in my next book. I didn’t find it out myself until 35 years after that first trip during the Cultural Revolution.

Santa Barbara – Kotor Sister City Exchange

Lingua Franca: Santa Barbara and Kotor Musicians Make Music Together Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE


N 1956, PRESIDENT DWIGHT EISENHOWER LAUNCHED HIS PEOPLE-TO-PEOPLE PROGRAM promoting friendship between countries regardless of race, creed, nationality, or color. The Sister City program has contributed to world peace by encouraging a vision of the planet and its many cultures as less confusing and more cohesive. Since 1956, Santa Barbara has made friends with seven sister cities including Kotor, Montenegro. Under the leadership of Founding Chairman and Co-Chair George and Denise Lilly, regular exchanges between Santa Barbara and Kotor have taken place since 2009, including visits between water polo teams, theater groups, and culinary schools. Montenegrin classical musicians, including pianist Ratimir Martinovic, have been a regular part of the Santa Barbara-Kotor Sister City exchanges as well, presenting recitals on two or three occasions since 2009. A promising new collaboration between the Santa BarbaraKotor Sister City organization and UC Santa Barbara’s Department of Music was inaugurated last Friday night in Weinman Hall at the Music Academy of the West, which promises to significantly increase contacts between musicians in the two cities. With funding from the SJL Foundation, four young professional musicians – two from Santa Barbara and two from Montenegro – came together for the first time to present a recital of music by Dvorak, Shostakovich, Fauré, and Mozart. Music is indeed humanity’s lingua franca and the quartet Violinist Nastasja Vojinovic of pianist Andrija Jovovic (Montenegro), violinist/violist Sara Bashore (Santa Barbara), cellist Katrina Agate (Santa Barbara), and violinist Nastasja Vojinovic (Montenegro), despite meeting to rehearse together for the first time only days earlier, played as one mind for a thoughtful and duly appreciative audience. Originally scored for two violins, cello, and harmonium, Dvorak’s Bagatelles, Op. 46 (1878) opened the program. Performed these days with piano replacing the harmonium, violinists Bashore and Vojinovic, cellist Agate, and pianist Jovovic found immediate Cellist Katrina Agate interpretive common ground in the first bagatelle of the set, Allegretto Scherzando, warming to each other still more in the second Tempo di Minuetto, Grazioso. As ensemble cohesion became more confident, blend and balance more focused, a vibrant energy and more nuanced discourse also evolved. By the Andante

King Tides ~ February 8 - 9

F YOU MISSED CATCHING THE KING TIDES IN JANUARY, you’ll have one more chance to witness these extra-high tides this season. On February 8th and 9th at 8:18 am, and 9:02 am, respectively, head out to your favorite coastal spot to get some insight into what a 6.5’ tide will look like. Observing these naturally occurring highest high tides provides a visualization of future sea levels and how it will impact our shoreline. Snap and share your photos on social media I.V.

con moto, the fourth bagatelle, one could sense a golden moment had arrived, the disparate musicians having found their collective sweet spot. A gorgeous wealth of color, dependent always on trust and consensus as much as technical prowess, filled the room with the wonder of the last bagatelle Poco allegro. Its playful galop and fascinating trio section, performed with gusto by the four musicians now colleagues, gave the audience a beautiful example of music’s indomitable connectivity with all souls. Dmitri Shostakovich’s assistant Lev Atovmian arranged many of the composer’s works for various instrumentations over the years, all with the composer’s blessing, including Five Pieces for Two Violins and Piano, the second work on the SB-Kotor program. Drawn from music Shostakovich composed for various other Violonist Sara Bashore projects, like the film The Gadfly (Prelude); the Third Ballet Suite (Gavotte and Elegy); a cartoon film The Tale of the Priest and his Servant Balda (Waltz), and the First Ballet Suite (Polka), the Five Pieces are, if nothing else, a sentimental musical journey most of us have never heard. More powerfully, these settings to images of peasant life and summer harvests – a Russia between the two World Wars – is both fun and bittersweet. Violinists Vojinovic and Bashore, with pianist Jovovic, were in particularly sensitive liaison, giving the pieces their nostalgic due with colorful dollops of panache, including lots of stylish playing in the Gavotte, a subtle understanding of the Viennese waltz rhythm from Jovovic, and a canny prescience about Shostakovich’s sly winks and coy nods throughout the set, particularly in the last piece, Polka. Gabriel Fauré’s Élégie for Cello and Piano, Op. 24 (1880) found cellist Agate and pianist Jovovic in excellent partnership, executing Fauré’s lamentations, as well as his busier riffs with characterful aplomb. Mozart’s signature Piano Quartet in G minor, K. 478 brought the program full circle with all four artists (Bashore switching from violin to viola) offering sterling performances of its three movements. Rich ensemble playing, intelligent phrasing and embellishment, very little pedal from the pianist (thanks), and excellent balancing and voice leading throughout, produced a polished performance. Post-recital catering by Goran Milic, guiding light of the culinary aspect of the Santa Barbara-Kotor Sister City exchanges, served by members of the Santa Barbara water polo club who will visit Kotor this summer, gave credence to the ecumenical nature of Pianist Andrija Jovovic the Santa Barbara-Kotor Sister City programs. Daniel Kepl has been writing music, theatre, and dance reviews or Santa Barbara publications since he was a teenager. His professional expertise is as an orchestra conductor.

TOCK AND BOND PRICES ARE GYRATING when the world economy doesn’t seem to know what to make of China’s coronavirus that has now spread to some 23 countries, according to latest reports. And that is not a good time for irrational exuberance to appear in the financial markets, since much of the financial gyrations are driven by excess liquidity—too abundant cash from the 2017 corporate tax cuts are pushing stock prices to record highs, and bond yields to record lows—both signs of price bubbles sure to burst on signs that world trade in particular could be affected by what economists call such an unpredictable, “exogenous” event. The medical consensus to date is that the coronavirus doesn’t seem as virulent as the 2003 SARS outbreak, yet the number of deaths and infection rate to date has already exceeded that of the SARS virus. The New York Times reports this respiratory virus has infected more than 17,000 people, killing “at least” 360, writing, “But the Wuhan coronavirus may be highly transmissible, as contagious as seasonal influenza that kills many

more, and the death rate is still unknown.” Why could this pandemic that the World Health Organization has now labeled a global public health emergency be dangerous to global growth? Nobel economist Paul Krugman says it’s because China’s economy is many times larger than it was in 2003, so the effect of closing down major Chinese cities until more is known about the virus could be economically devastating to China and other economies that depend on Chinese goods and services. The EU is one such market that is worried because 20 percent of its exports now go to China. Crude oil imports to China, the world’s largest consumer of oil, have also dropped 20 percent and oil prices are down approximately ten percent, which has OPEC producers scrambling to cut production quotas. Other economists are voicing similar warnings. Yale economist Dr. Stephen Roach, former Morgan Stanley chief economist and chairman of Morgan Stanley’s Asia Desk, is making good sense with his predictions of worse things to come. He’s talking about world trade volumes, which have dropped

precipitously. And that worldwide growth depends even more today on world trade, which has already been harmed by the Trump trade wars. Roach in recent Project Syndicate comments, said that from 1990 to 2008, annual growth in world trade was fully 82 percent faster than world GDP growth. And this cushion has shrunk dramatically, to just 13 percent over the 2010-19 period, “leaving the world economy more vulnerable to all-too-frequent shocks.” “The IMF’s latest assessment put global trade growth at just one percent in 2019 – its seventh consecutive downward revision,” said Roach. “Indeed, last year was the weakest trade performance since the historic 10.4 percent plunge in 2009, which was the worst contraction since the early 1930s.” Is Roach being an unnecessary alarmist? I don’t think so, when compared to the Great Depression. Now is not the time for irrational exuberance of any kind with world economies retreating in the face of so much geopolitical uncertainty (e.g., rising isolationism from rising nationalism). Are we prepared?

Building Peace in the 21st Century


By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

T WAS A HUMBLING EXPERIENCE to join more than 1,000 Rotarians and other peacemakers at the 2020 Rotary World Peace Conference this January. It gave me hope to see both young and old attending to learn from each other how to make the world a more peaceful place. Let’s start with the 160 assembled presenters comprised of not only Rotary Peace scholars and Good Will Ambassadors, but representatives from the Peace Corps, CARE International, the UN Refugee Agency, The Carter Center, and even a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize. They shared their expertise on how to advance peace in a world of increasing dangers, not only from global warming, but populations threatened by human trafficking, child abuse, spousal abuse, cyber-bullying, war trauma, sexual harassment, as well as regarding violence prevention in our cities, homes, and schools. There were ongoing workshops throughout a weekend held by violence prevention experts and ‘peace activators’, such as Aussie Steve Killelea’s Institute for Economics and Peace that has created the Global Peace Index and Positive Peace Report which rank nations for their attitudes, institutions, and structures that create and sustain peaceful societies. Of particular interest are those countries and regions that were able to increase their Global Peace Index in 2019: The Ukraine, Sudan, Egypt, North Macedonia, and Rwanda. “The 2019 GPI reveals a world in which the conflicts and crises that emerged in the past decade have begun to abate, but new tensions within and

between nations have emerged,” states the Global Peace Report. The Global Peace Index showed the first improvement in five years, in part because Rotary with its 1.2 million members has improved health outcomes in particular, giving some $250 million in grants to peace organizations and projects, such as developing drinking water facilities and health clinics in many of the same countries as the Peace Corps. Rotary clubs have been a large part of creating a more peaceful world. My local Montecito, California Rotary Club has raised more than $200,000 in financial aid for a small valley in the South Lake Kivu District of Eastern Democratic Republic of Congo to help women and children in particular recover from the devastating civil wars and rebel militias’ ongoing rape and pillaging that has killed thousands as they fought over the rich supply of so-called conflict minerals like Coltan, a rare mineral essential in cell phones. But what raised my hope for a more peaceful world above all was the 250 high school Rotary Interact Club members from Southern California and Arizona that were there to learn and train in conflict resolution skills. Where else should we put most of that hope for peace but in our children who will inherit this world?

Nordstrom Santa Barbara

Shopping Spree with Cherie and Me


NSPIRED BY THE NOSTALGIA OF SHOPPING at Haggarty’s Department Store in downtown Los Angeles in the 50’s, local artist Lenore T. Hughes has created a Valentine’s Day art installation at Nordstrom in Santa Barbara. The opening takes place at 10am Saturday, February 8th, and will remain on view through February 22nd. “As easy and efficient as shopping on-line is now – and it’s definitely a big part of the present and future in shopping – I like to continue the in-person, shopping tradition of getting all dressed up and taking my grandchildren to Nordstrom – the Haggarty’s of today – the only big department store in town, for the fun of it all, to experience all the sensory pleasures we just don’t get ordering in front of the computer screen in our pj’s,” Hughes shared. Nordstrom is located at 17 W Canon Perdido St.
