Opera Meets Broadway! The Light in the Piazza


LOVED, The Light in the Piazza will make Opera Santa Barbara history this spring as the company’s first-ever Broadway musical. Starring current and former members of Opera SB’s Chrisman Studio Artist Program, performances will be held at 7:30pm on Thursday through Saturday, March 23rd through the 25th, with a 2:30pm matinee on Sunday, March 26th.

“For me, this is a story of pure love and overcoming obstacles in order to find happiness,” said director Layna Chianakas. “It is also a story of parents who deeply love their children, and want what’s best for them, even when it means letting go of their own needs. It is unselfish love.”

Set in 1950s Florence, The Light in the Piazza follows Clara and her mother, a wealthy Southern woman named Margaret Johnson, as they vacation in Italy. While crossing a piazza, Clara’s hat flies off her head and is caught by Fabrizio, a young Italian man. The two succumb to love at first sight, and attempt to make plans for a future rendezvous. However, both Margaret and Fabrizio’s parents’ reservations

about the young couple’s romance throws their future into uncertainty.

Originally based on a novella by Elizabeth Spencer, the musical premiered on Broadway in 2005, running for 504 performances. Its score spans both English and Italian, making it an ideal play for a cast of professionally-trained opera singers to navigate.

“Language is one of the main characters in The Light in the Piazza,” explained Chianakas. “We have two women vacationing in Italy who do not speak Italian, a family of Italians who do not speak English well, a character who constantly breaks the fourth wall with the audience, and the use of Italian, making it so that the audience doesn’t understand. These miscommunications are what craft this beautiful story into one that is filled with understanding.”

Beyond offering the Santa Barbara community a moving love story, Opera SB’s production of The Light in the Piazza has presented its Chrisman Studio Artists with the unique opportunity to develop their Broadway sea legs. Named for supporters Sarah and Roger Chrisman, the program offers California artists training opportunities, short-term residencies, and performance contracts.

“The contemporary opera singer has to be versatile and sing a broad range of styles and repertoire spanning centuries and now including musical theater as well,” said Tim Accurso, Opera SB’s Chrisman Studio Artist Program Director and Principal Pianist. “For many of our performers, this was their first dialogue-heavy show, and it has been wonderful for them to flex their acting chops outside of their traditional operatic roles.”

To ensure the involvement of all members of the Chrisman Studio

when I stopped asking about what was appropriate and made decisions about how I wanted to sing the music. This was the first time preparing a role where I didn’t feel tied or obligated to honor musical traditions.”

“Working through dialogue is not something we often do in opera, and it’s been fun to work on that aspect of my acting while playing around with the vocal inflection of a young Italian man trying to speak English,” commented Matthew Greenblatt. “The singing really requires technical aspects of both classical and musical theater singing.”

Artist Program, as well as several alumni, Opera SB’s production will feature a partially rotating cast. On March 23rd and 25th, husband-wife duo soprano Brooklyn Snow and tenor Matthew Greenblatt will star as Clara and Fabrizio. On the 24th and 26th, the roles will be played by current artists soprano Ariana Horner Sutherland and tenor Kyle Rudolf.

“It’s been an incredibly special experience getting the chance to work alongside my husband and having the opportunity to go through the character development of Clara and Fabrizio together,” shared Brooklyn Snow. “I believe that the simplicity and pure nature of their love will touch the hearts of our audiences.”

Multiple cast members have voiced the distinct challenges of adjusting their traditional singing and acting styles to meet the demands of a Broadway musical. By embarking on this collective learning experience together, the group has reveled in the fun of expanding their horizons as artists and performers.

“The music can easily lend itself to an operatic style, as it can in a more contemporary-pop musical theater style,” said Kyle Rudolf. “When I was preparing the music I often found myself wondering ‘is this stylistically appropriate?’ It became freeing

The hope is that Santa Barbara community members enjoy a lively night of theater that highlights the capacity for individuals of all abilities and backgrounds to love.

“Not only is the music extremely beautiful and the melodies accessible, the story can speak to every one of us: Everyone deserves a chance at love and at life,” said Christina Pezzarossi, who will portray Clara’s mother. “Margaret says it best in the show: ‘She mustn’t be made to accept less from life because she isn’t like you or me.’”

Local Elementary Schools Organize Lunchtime Sports League for Students

BOUT 60 SANTA BARBARA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL STUDENTS gathered for an afternoon of fun on February 13th as the first local lunchtime student soccer league met. Organized by the teachers and staff of Monroe Elementary, Cleveland Elementary, Harding University Partnership School, and Adelante Charter school, the event brought together 6th grade students to play, exercise, and connect in the sunshine.

Shen also considered how first responders may use the campus maps by ensuring the maps had all of the doors properly identified. The map’s evacuation zones were also color-coded to be colorblind-friendly. School leaders and a Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s deputy approved the design, and the maps have since been mounted across the DPHS campus. Currently, Shen is waiting to schedule his Eagle Scout Board of Review.

“My hope is we’ll be able to do this again and bring back the positive vibes to school,” said Martin Cook, Assistant Principal at Harding. www.sbunified.org See

CommUnify Announces Water Assistance Program

COMMUNITY MEMBERS STRUGGLING TO PAY WATER BILLS may now qualify for Communify’s new utility payment program — the Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP). Recently launched, the program serves individuals who are struggling financially following the pandemic to the extent they are unable to afford their water bills.

“CommUnify is so happy to be participating in the LIHWAP program and offer this vital assistance to our community,” said Patricia Keelean, Chief Executive Officer of CommUnify. “With so many Santa Barbara County residents still striving for financial independence, this program can help provide some support to get them on a successful path to reaching that goal.”

Clean water is a right that all Californians deserve access to, and LIHWAP is able to offer assistance to many households that need assistance now. Santa Barbara County income eligible residents may now be able to pay water or wastewater bills through this federally-funded program through the California Department of Community Services and Development. LIHWAP offers low-income households a one-time payment – of up to $2,000 – to help pay bills for residential water or wastewater costs.

The amount of help that each resident will receive depends upon the past due balance and current charges of the household’s residential water and wastewater bills. Households whose utility payments are included in their rent may also be eligible for LIHWAP. Program participation is limited to households receiving services from water and wastewater providers enrolled in the LIHWAP partnership to receive the payment of assistance benefits.

Please contact Joni Kelly, Communications Manager for CommUnify at 805-964-8857 ext. #1109 or via email jkelly@CommUnifySB.org for more information about the Low Income Household Water Assistance Program (LIHWAP).

What Is the Fed’s Next Move?


PRICE INDEX rose from essentially zero in May 2020 to 8.9 percent YoY in June 2022. It has dropped to six percent in February, per the U.S. Census Bureau’s latest inflation report.

This is what panicked Federal Reserve officials to begin the draconion interest rate increases that have caused at least two bank failures, and maybe more, of mid-size banks whose oversight was weakened with a modification of the Dodd-Frank legislation in 2018.

The largest failure to date is the Silicon Valley Bank, whose depositors withdrew a record $42 billion in a matter of days. Taxpayers might now be picking up the tab because of the promise by the US

Treasury and FDIC to make all depositers whole (but not stock and bond holders).

The rising costs of renting and homeownership accounted for more than 70 percent of the increase in consumer prices last month due to the welldocumented housing shortage.

The cost of recreation, plane tickets, auto insurance, and furniture also rose sharply because the service sector is booming. Leisure/Hospitality, Education & Health had the fastest job growth in last Friday’s February unemployment report.

Economic VOICE

Some good news was that the cost of energy, including gas and natural gas, declined in February. And grocery prices rose 0.3 percent to mark the smallest increase in 21 months. They are still up 10.2

percent in the past year, however.

The wholesale cost of goods also fell last month in the Bureau of Labor Statistic’s Producer Price Index as well, led by the third straight decline in food prices. Notably, wholesale egg prices sank 41 percent. The cost of eggs had soared since the fall, doubling in price in some parts of the country.

The PPI report captures what companies pay for supplies such as fuel, metals, packaging and

so forth. These costs are often passed on to customers at the retail level and give an idea of whether inflation is rising or falling.

Crunching the numbers, it has taken nine months for CPI inflation to drop to six percent from its peak last June. It should take approximately six months to return to the Fed’s two percent inflation target, if it continues to decline at the same rate that it rose, which is sometime in

the fall.

But supply chains are taking longer to recover because of China’s COVID missteps and the Ukraine war that has no end in sight.

So what is the Fed to do? It would be a good time to pause and see if inflation continues to decline, as well as to ascertain whether higher interest rates do more damage to the banking industry that may have invested too heavily in certain assets.

Keep the Beat Instrument Drive Brings in 60 Instruments for School Music Programs


dozens of local students will have access to musical instruments through the Santa Barbara Education Foundation and 99.9 KTYD’s Keep the Beat Instrument Drive. Hosted each February, the program promotes local music education and invites listeners to donate financial support and their gently used musical instruments to area schools.

The 2023 campaign brought in over $10,000 for SB Unified music programs and 60 musical instruments.

“The instrument fund has put instruments in kids’ hands and given them an infinite gift, a purpose, a superpower, a reason and excuse to show up to school, and life,” said to Monroe

Elementary School Music Teacher Liz Caruso. “Instruments provide support and gateways for students to find their voice and navigate their way throughout their formative school years. You never know how music and specifically interpreting the world through an instrument will impact a child’s life.”

In addition to on-air appeals, the month-long radio program included interviews and performances by current Santa Barbara Unified music students, teachers, and professional musicians who found their love of music in public school music programs. These included local stars such as Glen Phillips, Madalena Fossatti, and Bucket Baker.

“Every day, we are astounded by the generosity of our community,” said 99.9 KTYD Morning Mojo host Lin Aubuchon. “Thank you, KTYD Tribe!”

A Tribute to Remember: Lowenthal’s Legend


POWER OVERTOOK HAHN HALL when five criticallyacclaimed pianists united in honoring one of the instrument’s prolific musicians: Jerome Lowenthal. A Music Academy faculty member for 50 years, Lowenthal has touched the lives of countless musicians, motivating Montecito’s premier music hub to present Lowenthal’s Legend on March 9th.

The evening began with a champagne reception honoring Lowenthal, known as Jerry to his Academy friends. Guests mingled with the evening’s talent, which included Ursula Oppens, Vassily Primakov, Evan Shinners, Nadia Shpachenko, and Lowenthal himself, joined by his daughter, Carmel Lowenthal.

“Tonight is about family,” announced Music Academy President & CEO Scott Reed. “Jerry, you are such a part of the family here at the Music Academy. We are delighted we get to spend this night with you.”

A sold-out Hahn Hall hushed as Lowenthal and Carmel appeared onstage for a four-hands performance of a series of pieces from Gabriel Fauré’s Dolly Suite, Op. 56. The father-daughter team expertly captured the light and airy musicality of the belle époque suite, shifting their tone to convey the emotions of Fauré’s Tendresse.

Next followed Evan Shinners, who Lowenthal proudly declared to be a “baroque wizard and a wizard of the baroque.” Matching Lowenthal’s humor, Shinners announced that he would perform a club sandwich concert of “French bread and German meat,” with three works by Louis Couperin dividing pieces by Wilhelm Friedemann Bach and Johann Sebastian Bach. Shinners certainly lived up to the “baroque wizard” title as he navigated each work with profundity and passion.

Vassily Primakov devoted his time to Franz Liszt, including Valse oubliée No. 1 S. 215, the first piece he ever performed in Hahn Hall or on an American stage. Through his tremendous enthusiasm, the piano reverberated with gravitas and fervor.

Lowenthal and Ursula Oppens followed Liszt’s intensity with a regal performance of Mendelssohn’s Nocturne and Scherzo from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Evoking Shakespeare’s imagery with each note, the duo dedicated their performance to Scott Reed for his years of service to the Academy.

The evening took a modern twist as Ukrainian pianist Nadia Shpachenko presented the world

premiere of composer Harold Meltzer’s Dribble. Inspired by soccer star Lionel Messi’s playing, the work is one of multiple Shpachenko has commissioned to celebrate soccer through music.

This jumpy piece preceded a far more emotional presentation as Shpachenko played two works she commissioned from the recently-deceased composer Lewis Spratlan. Titled Speck Pond Rag and Pelham Lake Rag, the pieces are featured on an album she has compiled to support Ukraine amidst Russia’s invasion. Two paintings, each inspired by the music and created by Ukrainian artists, were displayed as Shpachenko performed the engaging works.

The evening ended with the meeting of two master pianists: Chopin and Lowenthal. Mustering all of the energy and happiness demanded by Chopin’s Impromptu in A-flat Major, Lowenthal inspired smiles throughout Hahn Hall. His heart and skill for transporting listeners through music continued as he seamlessly transitioned to Chopin’s Fantaisie-Impromptu in C-sharp Minor

At the song’s end, Lowenthal was greeted by applause, cheers, and a unanimous standing ovation. Relenting to his listeners’ demands for more, he delivered a surprise encore befitting any piano tribute — Debussy’s incomparable Clair de Lune. Despite the piece’s popularity, Lowenthal’s skill breathed new life into its tranquil tenderness, ending the night on a note of peace and hope.

A Triumph of Power & Elegance: Ballet Hispánico’s Doña Perón

BOLD ACROBATIC LEAPS INTERLACED WITH SENSUAL TANGO and dynamic pirouettes graced the Granada Theatre on March 11th as Ballet Hispánico embraced the complexities of Argentina’s cultural icon: Eva Perón. A welcome continuation of the New York company’s relationship with UCSB Arts & Lectures, Doña Perón

demonstrated Ballet Hispánico’s innate talent for uniting Latinx dance with powerful storytelling.

As a woman, radio star, and political figure, Eva Perón has long been the subject of widespread celebration and speculation. In much of popular culture, she is remembered as an elegant advocate for women and workers’ rights. For many others, her identity is inseparable from the crimes of her husband, Argentinian President Juan Perón, who forcibly silenced his opponents and aided Nazis fleeing Europe after World War II.

Choreographer Annabelle Lopez Ochoa aptly captured the nuanced legacy of Eva Perón, better known as “Evita.” A stunning ten-act ballet with no intermission, Doña Perón pushed Ballet Hispánico’s dancers to acrobatic limits while maintaining impeccable visual beauty and the grace of ballet.

As the Granada curtain rose, Evita (Amanda del Valle) towered above the stage, held aloft by a dancer hidden beneath a flowing white dress. As recordings of Evita’s voice resonated throughout the theatre, she was confronted by her younger self (Laura Perich). A biographical plot unfolded, beginning with young Evita, who was an illegitimate child, seeking the love of her father (Antonio Cangiano). Throughout the production, Perich reappeared during pivotal moments, haunting Evita with memories of her past rejection.

Sensual and vibrant dances portrayed Evita’s early adult life, as del Valle playfully carried out a

number of onstage costume changes with male partners to reflect Evita’s personal relationships and her climbing the ladder of success. In a profound instance of visual repetition, del Valle mirrored the dance movements of young Evita, leaping into the arms of different men much like her younger self tried to jump into her father’s arms.

The only man to catch and hold on to her, however, is Perón (Chris Bloom). In a series of passionate pas de deux, Bloom and del Valle channeled fantastic chemistry to exhibit unwavering love. This love quickly turned to determination as Evita used her radio and popular influence with the Descamisados, or working class, to help Perón rise to power.

Working as a collective entity reminiscent of a Greek chorus, the Ballet Hispánico ensemble merged tango, malambo, African dance moves, and more to cement Doña Perón as a visually compelling and culturally representative work. This was heightened by the production’s live music, which similarly played with the rhythms of tango and African beats.

A darker tone shift emerged as Evita and Perón celebrated their power, the couple addressing an invisible crowd from pedestals while dancers in military uniforms attacked and murdered journalists and the couple’s enemies. In a disturbing crescendo, the dancers alluded to Perón’s fascist ties with a Nazi salute.

As Evita, del Valle shone as a dancer and actress, performing breath-catching leaps and midair splits with minimal breaks for the approximately 90-minute-long production. With unwavering expressiveness, she concluded Evita’s tale as she worked to prove herself as a philanthropist, distributing resources to the Descamisados before dying of cancer in Perón’s arms. As Perón, Bloom maintained a constant air of gravitas, matching del Valle’s intimate movements with a solidity that could be read as rigidness or reassuring strength.

Applause swept the Granada Theatre as Evita resumed the opening scene’s original position, towering and then sinking into her white silk skirts. The praise continued as Ballet Hispánico Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro emerged to answer community members’ questions, displaying dance’s role as an art form that sparks vital conversations.

Win for UCSB Men’s Basketball, Heartbreaking Loss for Women’s East Beach Volleyball Courts Washed Away by Storm

to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three years! 72 -62 over Cal State Fullerton.

TUESDAY, MARCH 14TH: The steady rain this winter has resulted in a strong runoff at Santa Barbara’s East Beach where volleyball courts have now been impacted. The courts are world famous and said to be the birthplace of beach volleyball as a competitive sport that has eventually made

it to the Olympics.

The city says before the storms it had 25 courts at East Beach. Now, it’s down to ten.

Longtime coaches, players, and the group Friends of East Beach say they are working with the Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation department to save equipment and make plans to put it all back when the sand fills in again.

De la Guerra Plaza Remodel Still Not

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 8TH: The center of Santa Barbara is not going to be redesigned without many opinions, meetings, hours of work, and emotions.

That all began in 2019 and while many steps have been taken to design something more functional in De la Guerra Plaza for the times we live in, there’s a strong case being made for just fixing what is there, saving money, and avoiding a facelift.


An estimated 14 meetings have taken place so far.

The current plans include removing any area for cars, taking out the lawn, and adding in a hardscape, a water feature such as a bubbler, and building a performance area.

There would also be a new design for the Anacapa St. side of Santa Barbara City Hall. That, however, was criticized for not having a new ramp for handicap access. There is one on the De la Guerra side.

THURSDAY, MARCH 9TH: The next roundabout project in Montecito will be at San Ysidro Road. A public meeting to describe the work, alternative routes and the timeline took place today at 5:30pm at the Montecito Library.

Construction is scheduled from March 2023 through the end of 2023. This project

is being delivered early to help local traffic ciruclation due to regional funding and Measure A.

Drivers will have access through the intersection during construction with the exception of June and July when the overcrossing over Highway 101 will be closed to enable roundabout, bridge rail, and on- and off-ramp construction simultaneously.

THE JOY AND ARTISTIC ACHIEVEMENTS of Santa Barbara’s transgender, non-binary, and gender-nonconforming communities will be celebrated when the Santa Barbara Transgender Advocacy Network hosts the local return of Transgender Day of Visibility. An evening full of hope and connections, the event will feature an art show, dinner, music, and plenty of opportunities for community members to connect with friends old and new.

Open to individuals of all ages and gender identities, the event will take place from 5pm to 9pm on Saturday, April 1st at the Unitarian Society of Santa Barbara.

“A lot of times at these events, a lot of the people in the community we’re serving are looking around the room and they can’t believe that there’s so much love and support,” shared Kathy Abad, SBTAN co-founder and board member. “They don’t get to see that on a daily basis, to walk into a room for an event that was created for them and to have all this support.”

Abad, joined by other local parents with transgender children, launched SBTAN in 2014, addressing Santa Barbara’s need for an organization devoted to supporting transgender individuals and their families. The organization’s Transgender Day of Visibility has played an integral role in supporting Santa Barbara’s transgender, non-binary, and gender-nonconforming community since 2016.

International Transgender Day of Visibility is officially celebrated each year on March 31st. First observed 14 years ago, the holiday works to counteract the heavy prevalence of media coverage about the transgender community that centers on violence, hardships, and transphobia.

By highlighting the uplifting aspects of

transgender individuals embracing their identities, Transgender Day of Visibility amplifies the joy and accomplishments of transgender people and shifts social narratives to be more positive.

“I think that every community should be doing a Transgender Day of Visibility for their communities to show their support because I think that the trans community wasn’t as visible eight years ago, and now I feel like there’s just so much vibrancy in the community,” said Abad. “Us celebrating it and other communities celebrating it is, I think, really important for our country, our city, our county, and the world.”

This year’s SBTAN Transgender Day of Visibility will feature an art show of works completed by local transgender, non-binary, and gender-nonconforming artists. Previously, the event has been a music-focused, full of singing, spoken word, and more. However, in planning the event’s comeback, SBTAN decided to offer community members the chance to express themselves through visual art.

Dinner will be provided by a local chef who is one of SBTAN’s dedicated parent members. There will also be an acoustic guitar performance by a community member.

While SBTAN’s event supports transgender, non-binary, and gendernonconforming community members and their families, all individuals are welcome to participate in the festivities, including those who do not identify as LGBTQ+.

“I think it gets them more familiar with the community,” said Abad. “They can mingle and talk with each other, their kids might connect with someone else in the trans community. It might be a great opportunity for different people to make different kinds of connections and it’s just a really good learning experience.”

The bid security must guarantee that within ten days after City issues the Notice of Award, the successful bidder will execute the Contract and submit the payment and performance bonds, insurance certificates and endorsements, and any other submittals required by the Contract Documents and as specified in the Notice of Award.

6. Prevailing Wage Requirements.

6.1 General. Pursuant to California Labor Code § 1720 et seq., this Project is subject to the prevailing wage requirements applicable to the locality in which the Work is to be performed for each craft, classification or type of worker needed to perform the Work, including employer payments for health and welfare, pension, vacation, apprenticeship and similar purposes.

6.2 Rates. The prevailing rates are on file with City and are available online at http://www.dir.ca.gov/DLSR. Each Contractor and Subcontractor must pay no less than the specified rates to all workers employed to work on the Project. The schedule of per diem wages is based upon a working day of eight hours. The rate for holiday and overtime work must be at least time and one-half. Pursuant to Section 1773 of the Labor Code, the general prevailing wage rates in the county in which the work is to be done have been determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations. These wages are set forth in the General Prevailing Wage Rates for this Project, available at the City of Santa Barbara, General Services Manager, Purchasing Office, 310 E. Ortega Street, Santa Barbara, California, and available from the California Department of Industrial Relations’ Internet web site at http:// www.dir.ca.gov/DLSR/PWD.

Attention is directed to the Federal minimum wage rate requirements in the specifications. If there is a difference between the minimum wage rates predetermined by the Secretary of Labor and the general prevailing wage rates determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for similar classifications of labor, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the higher wage rate. The City of Santa Barbara will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes

“helper” (or other classifications based on hours of experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations. Where Federal wage determinations do not contain the State wage rate determination otherwise available for use by the Contractor and subcontractors, the Contractor and subcontractors shall pay not less than the Federal minimum wage rate, which most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question. Federal wage determinations issued under the Davis-Bacon and related Acts are available electronically at no cost at Wage Determinations OnLine.gov, http://www.wdol.gov/ Index.aspx.

This is a federally-assisted project and Davis-Bacon (DBRA) requirements will be strictly enforced. The Federal Contract Provisions will be incorporated into the successful bidder’s contract as applicable and are attached hereto as “Special Conditions Part 1 - Federal Contract Provisions for FAA AIP Projects.” Contractors, including all subcontractors and apprentices, must be eligible to participate. Actual prevailing wage rates will be determined as of the bid opening date. If any modifications have been issued to the wage decision, the contractor must adhere to the modified wage decision.

6.3 Compliance. The Contract will be subject to compliance monitoring and enforcement by the DIR, under Labor Code § 1771.4., and the Federal Contract Provisions for AIP Funded Projects, and the Federal Aviation Administration Advisory Circular 150-5370-10H.

7. Performance and Payment Bonds. The successful bidder will be required to provide performance and payment bonds, each for 100% of the Contract Price, as further specified in the Contract Documents.

8. Substitution of Securities. Substitution of appropriate securities in lieu of retention amounts from progress payments is permitted under Public Contract Code § 22300.

9. Subcontractor List. Each Subcontractor must be registered with the DIR to perform work on public projects. Each bidder must submit a completed Subcontractor List form with its Bid Proposal, including the name, location of the place of business, California contractor license number, DIR registration number, and percentage of the Work to be performed (based on the base bid price) for each Subcontractor that will perform Work or service or fabricate or install Work for the prime contractor in excess of one-half of 1% of the bid price, using the Subcontractor List form included with the Contract Documents.

10. Instructions to Bidders. All bidders should carefully review the Instructions to Bidders for more detailed information before submitting a Bid Proposal. The definitions provided in Article 1 of the General Conditions apply to all of the Contract Documents, as defined therein, including this Notice Inviting Bids.

11. Disadvantaged Business Enterprise: Bidders are advised that, as required by federal law, the State has established a statewide overall Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) goal. This Agency federal-aid contract is considered to be part of the statewide overall DBE goal. The Agency is required to report to Caltrans on DBE participation for

all federal aid contracts each year so that attainment efforts may be evaluated. This agency federal aid contract has a goal of 1.0% DBE participation.

12. Bidders’ Conference. A bidders’ conference will be held on March 28 , 2023, at 10:00am (PST), at the following location: Santa Barbara Municipal Airport 601 Firestone Road, Santa Barbara, CA 93117 to acquaint all prospective bidders with the Contract Documents and the Worksite. The bidders’ conference is not mandatory.

13. Federally Funded Project. The majority of this project is funded under the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Airport Improvement Program (AIP). Contractor(s) will be required to comply with specific federal contract provisions as listed herein and contained in the Bid Documents.


A. The Offeror’s or Bidder’s attention is called to the “Equal Opportunity Clause” and the “Standard Federal Equal Employment Opportunity Construction Contract Specifications” set forth herein.

B. The goals and timetables for minority and female participation, expressed in percentage terms for the Contractor’s aggregate workforce in each trade on all construction work in the covered area, are as follows:


Goals for minority participation for each trade: 19.7%

Goals for female participation in each trade: 6.9%

These goals are applicable to all of the Contractor’s construction work (whether or not it is Federal or federally assisted) performed in the covered area. If the Contractor performs construction work in a geographical area located outside of the covered area, it shall apply the goals established for such geographical area where the work is actually performed. With regard to this second area, the Contractor also is subject to the goals for both its federally involved and nonfederally involved construction.

The Contractor’s compliance with the Executive Order and the regulations in 41 CFR Part 60-4 shall be based on its implementation of the Equal Opportunity Clause, specific affirmative action obligations required by the specifications set forth in 41 CFR 60-4.3(a) and its efforts to meet the goals. The hours of minority and female employment and training must be substantially uniform throughout the length of the contract, and in each trade, and the Contractor shall make a good faith effort to employ minorities and women evenly on each of its projects. The transfer of minority or female employees or trainees from Contractor to Contractor or from project to project for the sole purpose of meeting the Contractor’s goals shall be a violation of the contract, the Executive Order and the regulations in 41 CFR Part 60-4. Compliance with the goals will be measured against the total work hours performed.

C. The Contractor shall provide written notification to the Director of the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) within 10 working days of award of any construction subcontract

in excess of $10,000 at any tier for construction work under the contract resulting from this solicitation. The notification shall list the name, address, and telephone number of the subcontractor; employer identification number of the subcontractor; estimated dollar amount of the subcontract; estimated starting and completion dates of the subcontract; and the geographical area in which the subcontract is to be performed.

D. As used in this notice and in the contract resulting from this solicitation, the “covered area” is City of Santa Barbara, County of Santa Barbara, State of California.


The CITY of SANTA BARBARA, in accordance with the provisions of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (78 Stat. 252, 42 USC §§ 2000d to 2000d-4) and the Regulations, hereby notifies all bidders or offerors that it will affirmatively ensure that for any contract entered into pursuant to this advertisement disadvantaged business enterprises will be afforded full and fair opportunity to submit bids in response to this invitation and no businesses will be discriminated against on the grounds of race, color, national origin (including limited English proficiency), creed, sex (including sexual orientation and gender identity), age, or disability in consideration for an award.


Bid Information submitted as a matter of responsibility:

The Owner’s award of this contract is conditioned upon Bidder or Offeror satisfying the good faith effort requirements of 49 CFR § 26.53. As a condition of responsibility, every Bidder or Offeror must submit the following information on the forms provided herein within five days after bid opening.

1) The names and addresses of Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) firms that will participate in the contract;

2) A description of the work that each DBE firm will perform;

3) The dollar amount of the participation of each DBE firm listed under (1);

4) Written statement from Bidder or Offeror that attests their commitment to use the DBE firm(s) listed under (1) to meet the Owner’s project goal;

5) Written confirmation from each listed DBE firm that it is participating in the contract in the kind and amount of work provided in the prime contractor’s commitment; and

6) If Bidder or Offeror cannot meet the advertised project DBE goal, evidence of good faith efforts undertaken by the Bidder or Offeror as described in appendix A to 49 CFR part 26. The documentation of good faith efforts must include copies of each DBE and non-DBE subcontractor quote submitted to the bidder when a non-DBE subcontractor was selected over a DBE for work on the contract.


All contracts and subcontracts that result from this solicitation incorporate by reference the provisions of 29 CFR part 201, et seq, the Federal Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), with the same force and effect as if given in full text. The FLSA sets minimum wage,

overtime pay, recordkeeping, and child labor standards for full and part-time workers.

The Contractor has full responsibility to monitor compliance to the referenced statute or regulation. The Contractor must address any claims or disputes that arise from this requirement directly with the U.S. Department of Labor – Wage and Hour Division.


By submission of an offer, the Offeror certifies that with respect to this solicitation and any resultant contract, the Offeror –

1) is not owned or controlled by one or more citizens of a foreign country included in the list of countries that discriminate against U.S. firms as published by the Office of the United States Trade Representative (USTR);

2) has not knowingly entered into any contract or subcontract for this project with a person that is a citizen or national of a foreign country included on the list of countries that discriminate against U.S. firms as published by the USTR; and

3) has not entered into any subcontract for any product to be used on the Federal project that is produced in a foreign country included on the list of countries that discriminate against U.S. firms published by the USTR.

This certification concerns a matter within the jurisdiction of an agency of the United States of America and the making of a false, fictitious, or fraudulent certification may render the maker subject to prosecution under Title 18 USC § 1001.

The Offeror/Contractor must provide immediate written notice to the Owner if the Offeror/Contractor learns that its certification or that of a subcontractor was erroneous when submitted or has become erroneous by reason of changed circumstances. The Contractor must require subcontractors provide immediate written notice to the Contractor if at any time it learns that its certification was erroneous by reason of changed circumstances.

Unless the restrictions of this clause are waived by the Secretary of Transportation in accordance with 49 CFR § 30.17, no contract shall be awarded to an Offeror or subcontractor:

1) who is owned or controlled by one or more citizens or nationals of a foreign country included on the list of countries that discriminate against U.S. firms published by the USTR; or

2) whose subcontractors are owned or controlled by one or more citizens or nationals of a foreign country on such USTR list; or

3) who incorporates in the public works project any product of a foreign country on such USTR list. Nothing contained in the foregoing shall be construed to require establishment of a system of records in order to render, in good faith, the certification required by this provision. The knowledge and information of a contractor is not required to exceed that which is normally possessed by a prudent person in the ordinary course of business dealings.

The Offeror agrees that, if awarded a contract resulting from this

solicitation, it will incorporate this provision for certification without modification in all lower tier subcontracts. The Contractor may rely on the certification of a prospective subcontractor that it is not a firm from a foreign country included on the list of countries that discriminate against U.S. firms as published by USTR, unless the Offeror has knowledge that the certification is erroneous.

This certification is a material representation of fact upon which reliance was placed when making an award. If it is later determined that the Contractor or subcontractor knowingly rendered an erroneous certification, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) may direct through the Owner cancellation of the contract or subcontract for default at no cost to the Owner or the FAA.

Bookworm Corner:



SHE FEELS FREE. Having learned to fly when she was just eleven years old, Ida is determined to pursue her passion by becoming a pilot. However, while aviator Bessie Coleman was able to earn her pilot’s license as a Black woman in Europe,

1940s American society is too racist and misogynistic to provide that opportunity to Ida.

As engaging as it is historically insightful, Flygirl by Sherri L. Smith shines a light on an often overlooked chapter of World War II: the Women Airforce Service Pilots (WASP) program. Launched in 1943 at the height of the war, the WASP program hired women pilots to undertake non-combat aviation jobs typically assigned to men, such as ferrying supplies and testing aircrafts. The program proved essential in supporting the American war effort and expanding opportunities for women at a time when they were barred from enlisting for active service.

Community Arts Music Association

Sunset by the Sea To Raise Money for SB Music


(CAMA) has been a staple in the Santa Barbara arts and music community that aims to enrich the community through music performances and educational programs. Join CAMA and other community members in a toast to young musicians at their upcoming fundraiser event, the second annual Sunset by the Sea, which takes place on Monday, March 20th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm at the Cabrillo Pavilion.

“Giving young people the power to overcome their disadvantages and be able to communicate across language and cultural barriers is a noble cause,” said Musette Profant, Vice President of the CAMA Women’s Board.

Sunset by the Sea will feature wine from Artiste Winery and hors d’oeuvres for guests to enjoy at the beachfront. There is also a silent auction featuring items ranging from bottles of wine to jewelry, and even a gourmet dining experience at Casa Cima Linda. The Women’s Board of CAMA, which raises money to assist with concert sponsorships, educational outreach, and CAMA’s own Music Matters program, has invited world-renowned luthier Robert Brewer Young to be the keynote speaker of the Sunset by the Sea fundraiser.

“[Young] is really a dynamic speaker who is passionate about the work that he does,” said CAMA Women’s Board president Deborah Bertling. “He does things that our organization is a fan of. We want to get music into the hands and hearts of as many kids as we can.”

Increasing access to music for young children increases their communication skills, improves their test scores, and decreases violence in their communities. The social impact of music is undeniable, but the cost of obtaining and then maintaining an instrument proves too much of a financial burden for some to bear. As a luthier, or a craftsperson who creates and fixes stringed instruments with a neck and sound box such as violins or cellos, Young is among the world’s most respected. What truly makes Young shine are his efforts to spread access to music and music education to youth around the world through the work of his nonprofit, The Open String.

Beginning as a free service to rehair bows and repair instruments for blind musicians playing on the streets and subways of New York City, The Open String now works to provide kits to build high quality instruments to young musicians in poverty that rival the sonic quality and resonance of revered Stradivarius instruments. The kits were developed in partnership with Cambridge Department of Engineering, and combine Baroque violin making with computerized manufacturing. This manufacturing allows The Open String to provide these kits for just $3, which is a remarkably less expensive route than purchasing a new instrument, and also incorporates the young musicians into the construction process. Renowned violinist Lisa Lee will join Robert Brewer Young at Sunset by the Sea to demonstrate the “side-by-side” sounds of a Stradivarius violin and The Open String’s kit-assembled violin.

For tickets ($100), to view the silent auction items, or to make a donation, visit www.camasb.org

Yet this opportunity was not open to all women, namely Black female pilots. A dynamic work of historical fiction for ages 12 and up, Flygirl challenges this reality through the story of Ida Mae, a Black woman who dreams of earning her pilot’s license and working as a crop duster like her father. When she takes her pilot’s exam, however, the instructor tells her that while he would have no issues giving her license as a Black person,

he would never certify a woman. When WWII breaks out and the WASP program begins, Ida Mae realizes that it may be her only chance for a career in aviation — but only if she is willing to pass as a white woman.

Readers embark on a thoughtful, compelling read full of vibrant characters. Ida Mae, her family, and WASP peers each boast distinctive personalities that bring to life the hope, determination, and obstacles of a generation of women and people of color. The book’s very premise also approaches the issues of identity, friendship, and prejudice from a nuanced perspective. Ida Mae’s struggle to justify her actions to her family — and herself — asks readers to reflect on the nature of denying one’s identity to achieve success in an intolerant society. Her decision also highlights the issue of colorism, the reality of existing as a Black woman in the South during the Jim Crow era, and the perils of defying those laws.

In pairing Ida Mae’s story with the plights of the women she befriends, Smith leaves readers with a better understanding of the bravery and determination of the WASP aviators and secures Flygirl as an empowering read for Women’s History Month and beyond.

Spring Magic is in the Air

foliage with disembodied eyes that watch a small, long-tongued, eldritch creature that is equally Lovecraftian as it is cute. An observant chameleon sits on a leaf assessing the danger of the scene below as the creature passes by.

“LA artist, Allois, creates her own world born of magic and mysticism and mythology in oil on canvas,” said Rubenstein. “The scenes are dark, yet amusing, enhanced by her old master style painting.”


BRINGS IMPENDING JOY AND BURSTING HAPPINESS, this sense of rebirth carries the reminder of the dark, cold winter that passed. In between these sensations lies Silo118 and BG Gallery’s satellite exhibition, Spring Magic Paintings, sculptures, and photographs cover the walls depicting subjects such as psychedelic naturescapes, plastic animals on a world tour, and people enjoying the outdoor world.

Open at VOICE Gallery in La Cumbre Plaza until March 31st, Spring Magic is Silo118’s first endeavor in testing out new “satellite” gallery locations around town.

“Hanging artwork is always an art in and of itself and this exhibit takes the viewer through several journeys as each artist has his or her own niche,” shared Bonnie Rubenstein, owner/director of Silo118. “You get the sense that you are walking into a museum.”

Spring Magic delivers an assortment of experiences that reference artistic aesthetics from the grotesque and the surreal to the fantastic and the absurd. One piece that embodies the sense of Spring Magic is Reawakening by Mat Mazza. Created from wood and steel, the Palm Springs sculptor’s piece features a small red bench with thin, snaking branches poking up through one end of the seat. The branches are gnarled and twisted, and barren save for small little red orbs at the tips that call to mind budding fruits that are ready to grow, but still need time to reach the point of ripening. That these branches are part of the bench creates a feeling of compassionate patience. If one can wait long enough for the fruits to ripen, then they will also be able to enjoy a seat in the tree’s shade.

Spring Magic includes works from painters Airom (owner and curator of BG Gallery), Gregory Horndeski, Salvatore Matteo, Hung Viet Nguyen, Larry Vigon, and Robin Walker. Sculptors Enrique Avilez, Jim Mcininch, Gerald Patrick, mixed media artists Jessica Darke and Lana Schmulevich, and photographers RT Livington and Ryan Schude also have featured pieces.

“A recent visitor to the exhibit expressed appreciation for the diversity of the work,” shared Rubenstein.

The darker side of the exhibition holds The Power of Willhelm by LA artist Allios, which depicts alien-faced mouthless cherubs that hunt a crowned boar in the sky. Another painting by Allios titled Existence features a dark background covered in dense

This venture marks the latest artistic addition to La Cumbre Plaza, which has developed into an upand-coming arts location for the Santa Barbara community. In addition to this collaboration between VOICE Gallery and Silo118, the Plaza is home to the La Cumbre Center for Creative Arts, the Arts Fund, and the Museum of Sensory & Movement Experiences.

A150 years of arts presentations, March 10th, 2023 at the Lobero Theatre brought a gathering of music aficionados also celebrating the 85th birthday of Charles Lloyd.

As Mr. Lloyd came onto the stage, he and his band were greeted with a robust, reverential standing ovation. After the applause receded, he began to fill the space with his mellifluous filigree musings on his tenor sax, weaving worlds with his compatriots through the stories explored and revealed. Lloyd is a griot, narrating his stories with an incredibly wide array of dynamics, so quiet and yet capable of becoming a wall of sound.

The background of these musicians is a virtual “who’s who” of the jazz lexicon. Lift Every Voice opened by Jason Moran, tender, reverent, sometimes creeping at the edges hinting at, then bursting into social discontent, evocative of the civil discord in which we find ourselves embroiled. Music reflects and captures us so beautifully. He and his trio are masters of this most treasured art form.

This was an evening of seamless interplay, replete in filling one’s soul with so much goodness – simultaneity of being alone, yet together. His other explorations included Rabo de Nube and Soaring, played on his alto flute, finishing with an encore of La Llorona on his tenor saxophone.

A small cadre of people began singing happy birthday. It was beautiful. Within a few moments the song spread across the hall, everyone joining in to wish Charles a most heartfelt rendition.

The backdrop video and paintings were created by his wife, Dorothy Darr: serene, sensual, and edgy.

This was Lloyds’ 19th concert at the Lobero.

The evening continued with a party where guests had the opportunity to share their love and appreciation of and for the many decades of extraordinary music with Lloyd. As he said during the concert to Jason, “play it...play it man.”
