Whales Are Superheroes!

EACHING UP TO AN IMPRESSIVE 110 FEET LONG AND WEIGHING OVER 300,000 POUNDS, the blue whale has long been celebrated for its majesty and title as the largest animal living on Earth. Its five subspecies live across all of the planet’s oceans except for the A blue whale arctic, with the Northern Subspecies swimming through the Santa Barbara Channel and the Channel Islands. Santa Barbara whale watchers are most likely to spot blue whales in regional waters in the summertime when they migrate from wintering along Central America to feed. Despite their large size, blue whales primarily eat minuscule krill, filtering the krill out of the water using baleen plates in their mouths. Blue whales are considered endangered under the Endangered Species Act, as populations continue to recover from heavy, historic commercial whaling practices. Today, they are largely threatened by being caught in fishing nets and gear, and being hit by boats.

Legal Actions Challenge Huge Logging Project in Los Padres National Forest Three lawsuits filed against Forest Service for failing to protect environment and cultural resources on Pine Mountain & Reyes Peak COALITION OF ENVIRONMENTAL, BUSINESS, AND RECREATIONAL ORGANIZATIONS—joined by the County of Ventura and the City of Ojai—filed suit in federal court today to challenge a commercial logging and vegetation removal project atop Pine Mountain and Reyes Peak in the Los Padres National Forest. The project area—equivalent in size to 575 American football fields—is located on ancestral lands of the Chumash. It is historically and culturally important to Indigenous people, popular with locals and tourists for a range of recreational activities, designated critical habitat for the endangered California condor, and home to other sensitive wildlife, rare plants, old-growth conifer forests, and unique ecosystems. As today’s legal actions against the U.S. Forest Service note, more than one-third of the project area is in a protected roadless area that has never been degraded by commercial logging or other industrial activities. The area is proposed for wilderness protection under the bipartisan Central Coast Heritage Protection Act (H.R. 2199), now awaiting final approval in the Senate. “We’re proud to stand with Indigenous leaders, local businesses, conservation and recreation groups, and city and county governments in demanding a more thoughtful environmental review of this harmful project,” said Los Padres ForestWatch executive director Jeff Kuyper. “Pine Mountain must be protected, not offered up to logging companies using loopholes that make a mockery of our bedrock environmental laws.” “There is no question that Reyes Peak will be adversely affected by this logging project, which authorizes the removal of large trees in an area that includes unique ‘sky island’ habitat, sacred cultural sites, potential wilderness, and sensitive wildlife,” said Maggie Hall, Senior Attorney at the Environmental Defense Center. “The Forest Service’s approval of the project despite these impacts violates several important environmental laws.” “This commercial logging project will hack a brutal scar through one of Los Padres National Forest’s most beautiful roadless areas,” said Justin Augustine, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity. “The Forest Service wants to let chainsaws chew up old-growth conifers and crucial habitat for wildlife. It’s immoral, it’s illegal and we hope to stop it in court.” “Logging projects like this, conducted under the guise of deceptive euphemisms like ‘thinning’ and ‘fuel reduction’, not only damage wildlife habitat but also tend to increase overall wildfire severity by reducing the shade of the forest canopy and creating a hotter, drier, and windier microclimate,” said Dr. Chad Hanson, forest and fire ecologist with the John Muir Project of Earth Island Institute. “The Forest Service seems to have no concern about logging many thousands of old-growth conifers from Pine Mountain,” said Alasdair Coyne, conservation director at Keep Sespe Wild. “These ‘sky islands’ of giant trees only survive at the rare high elevation peaks of Southern California’s National

Forests. Threatened by climate change, they need protection, not logging.” “Pine Mountain is 90 minutes from our corporate headquarters in Ventura and the area is important to our employees and customers because of its outdoor recreation opportunities including rock climbing, hiking and camping,” said Hans Cole, head of Environmental Activism at Patagonia. “This mountain is also home to old-growth conifers and some of the most diverse and unique habitats in the Los Padres National Forest. We have opposed this project since it was unveiled in 2020, we have been advocating for more conservation of this area since the Central Coast Heritage Protection Act was introduced in the U.S. Senate in 2017, and we have been supporting the grassroots environmentalists protecting Los Padres National Forest since 2004.”

“The unique geology, ancient forests, and primitive setting of Pine Mountain make it a premier climbing and outdoor recreation destination “ said Taylor Luneau, Policy Manager at the American Alpine Club. “More than just threatening the future of this regional recreation hub, the Reyes Peak Project endangers the viability of an important biological hotspot and carbon reserve, degrades a sacred Chumash site, and undermines several of our most prized environmental laws. We hope this legal challenge will protect the recreation experience and the many natural and cultural resources of Pine Mountain, as well as encourage the Forest Service to more intentionally look before they leap.” The project would allow unlimited mechanized cutting and removal of live and dead trees of any age up to two feet in diameter and an undisclosed number of trees up to five feet in diameter as well as the destruction of chaparral across 755 acres. The lawsuits were filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California in Los Angeles allege violations of the National Environmental Policy Act, Roadless Area Conservation Rule, Endangered Species Act, National Forest Management Act, and take aim at the Forest Service’s failure to collaborate with stakeholders. Such collaboration is required whenever the Forest Service relies on a categorical exclusion under the National Environmental Policy Act to expedite a project. Originally designed for small maintenance projects like painting buildings, categorical exclusions allow forest officials to bypass standard requirements under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) to consider project alternatives and conduct a detailed study of potential impacts on the area’s unique ecosystems—studies the plaintiffs say are crucial to the protection of important environmental, recreational, and cultural resources. The plaintiffs claim that the Forest Service violated the 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule’s prohibition on the removal of larger trees. The suit also alleges violations of the Endangered

Species Act for allowing the removal of an unlimited number of large trees in which endangered California condors roost, providing places to rest during long flights across the landscape. The project would also harm rare California spotted owls, northern goshawks, rare plants, and two species of bats whose populations are declining. Lastly, the plaintiffs allege that the project violates the National Forest Management Act because the agency failed to comply with the Los Padres National Forest Plan standards that protect scenic integrity and the natural character of the area. Clearing thousands of trees and hundreds of acres of chaparral on Pine Mountain, an area prized for its natural beauty and abundant outdoor recreation opportunities, is a drastic elimination of native vegetation with effects that will linger for generations and is not allowed under the 2005 Forest Plan for the Los Padres National Forest. The project was approved over the objection of local elected officials, Indigenous leaders, scientists, more than 30 area businesses, 70 environmental and social justice organizations, and 15,000 members of the public. Those objections amounted to a multitude of comments many times greater than any single project in Los Padres National Forest has received. Despite this unprecedented level of community opposition, the Forest Service failed to make any meaningful changes to the project and approved it in September 2021. The project is part of a spate of proposals issued during the Trump Administration when timber targets were increased, the use of categorical exclusions was encouraged, and the price that timber companies paid for lumber harvested on certain public lands was lowered. Three similar projects have been proposed in the immediate region including a project along Tecuya Ridge in which a panel of federal appeals court judges recently found the Forest Service in violation of the Roadless Rule. Another, on Mt. Pinos, is scheduled for approval this summer. The organizations filing the lawsuit are Los Padres ForestWatch, Keep Sespe Wild Committee, Earth Island Institute, and American Alpine Club, collectively represented by the Environmental Defense Center; along with the Center for Biological Diversity, California Chaparral Institute, and Patagonia Works, represented by the Center for Biological Diversity. The County of Ventura and the City of Ojai each filed similar suits simultaneously with the other plaintiff groups. The cases will likely be combined and considered together.

Meet Tess Harris:

Santa Barbara’s State Street Master Planner



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

By Daisy Scott / VOICE

ALLING STATE STREET “A BACKYARD THAT EVERYONE SHARES,” State Street Master Planner Tess Harris is hard at work reimagining how this community space can evolve to serve generations to come. Since August 2021, it has been her responsibility to manage the creation of a State Street Master Plan that will guide the street’s — and consequently downtown Santa Barbara’s — future.

“I want [State Street] to be the best version of itself while preserving what makes it uniquely Santa Barbara,” she said. Harris has lived in Santa Barbara for over ten years, originally moving here to attend UCSB, studying environmental studies and English. She went on to earn her master’s degree from the Middlebury Institute of International Studies, simultaneously working in planning at the City of Pacific Grove with a focus on its urban forestry and coastal trail program. Upon graduating, Harris worked at the U.S. Department of State in the Bureau of Oceans, Environment, and Science. Ultimately, she traveled to Cyprus after receiving a Fulbright Scholarship to research water conservation and irrigation technology in the agricultural sector. “Still, Santa Barbara is home – it’s where my daughter was born and is growing up - and I can’t imagine anything greater for someone in planning than getting to help improve one’s own community,” shared Harris.

Now, these efforts are taking crucial steps forward as the City of Santa Barbara prepares to hire a consulting firm to work alongside Harris and the State Street Advisory Committee in crafting this plan.

Locally, Harris has managed projects and teams in Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties’ Planning Departments, including leading Santa Barbara County’s planning effort after the 2018 Montecito Debris Flow. Her past experience also includes working on the Tajiguas Landfill, multi-unit housing projects, and the expansion of Highway 101.

“My main priority is to keep the momentum going to improve our downtown, make Santa Barbara’s downtown the best it can be, and ensure that the entire community is heard,” she said. “When the State Street Master Plan is complete, a thriving downtown will be one that everyone can enjoy. It’s said often, but it truly is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

As Master Planning efforts continue, Harris will gather advice and input from SSAC members as she works with the city and eventually its chosen consulting firm. Firms who have submitted proposals include: Gensler; MIG, Inc.; Rios, Inc.; Sargent Town Planning, Inc.; Stantec Architecture; Stoss, Inc.; Studio One Eleven; and SWA Group.

Harris was hired prior to the SSAC’s formation by City Administrator Rebecca Bjork, after being interviewed by City management staff, an SB Office of Arts and Culture representative, and a State Street Master Planner Tess Harris City Historic Landmarks Commission representative. She began the role Harris emphasized the value of engaging the community beyond local government after the SSAC’s first meeting, where she continues to work with the city and committee meetings and the SSAC. to achieve the city’s current goal of hiring a consulting firm to join the State Street Master Plan effort. “Doing it right requires meeting community members where they are already, engaging property and business owners, talking to students and teachers, working with local Ultimately, the city hopes to finish the State Street Master Plan in late 2023 or early organizations, participating in neighborhood meetings, and creating opportunities for 2024. Harris emphasized that the final plan will be the result of many discussions on what people to provide input – in multiple languages and formats,” said Harris. downtown Santa Barbara should represent and include. The plan will address issues such as economic development, historic resources, sustainability and resiliency, mobility and Harris invites community members with questions or comments about the future of downtown Santa Barbara to contact her at FutureStateStreet@SantaBarbaraCA.gov circulation, and streetscape design. The next State Street Advisory Committee meeting will take place on May 16th. For info, visit www.santabarbaraca.gov/gov/brdcomm/nz/ssac/default.asp

Wine Icon Pierre Lafond Has Died


IERRE LAFOND, THE WINEMAKER WHO SHAPED SANTA BARBARA COUNTY’S WINEMAKING INDUSTRY, passed away on Sunday, April 24th, at the age of 92. Widely celebrated for his fine wines and restaurants, Lafond founded Santa Barbara Winery in 1962, making it the county’s first winery since prohibition. He also opened the first tasting room in what ultimately became Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone in 1964. Pierre Lafond & Co. and Wendy Foster Inc., and the Lafond family released the following statement:

Pierre Lafond

Pierre had a strong appetite for steady and true work. He invested whole-heartedly in his current ventures as well as creating ongoing opportunities. He was attentive, consistent, and caring, working right alongside his many employees throughout his entire career and was a leader to the very end. Pierre was a staple in our community, ever present at our many locations, where his steadfast presence will be sorely missed. With gratitude in our hearts for his influence and dedication, we look forward to carrying on his legacy and honoring his commitment to family, hard work, and service.”

May Day Celebration

Sing springtime songs, learn a traditional English country dance, and make your own floral nosegays and wreaths when the Santa Barbara Revels hosts its May Day Celebration in Paseo Nuevo’s Center Court at 1pm on Sunday, May 1st. A timehonored tradition to welcome spring, this free event offers fun for community members of all ages. Attendees will sing new and familiar songs with SB Revels Song Leader Erin McKibben, followed by a Revels Dancers performance of the English country dance “Upon a Summer’s Day.” Guest musicians will provide lively, upbeat musical accompaniment, including performances by members of the SB Bagpipe & Drum Corps. Finally, the community will adorn the May Pole with bright, festive ribbons. Working together, participants will hold streamers and walk around each other in two circles, weaving beautiful patterns worthy of a true, old-fashioned spring celebration.

Celebración del Primero de Mayo

Canta canciones de primavera, aprende un baile country inglés tradicional y haz tus propios ramilletes de flores y coronas de flores cuando Santa Barbara Revels celebre su celebración del Primero de Mayo en el patio central de Paseo Nuevo a la 1pm el domingo, 1 de mayo. Una tradición para dar la bienvenida a la primavera, este evento gratuito ofrece diversión para los miembros de la comunidad de todas las edades.


Los asistentes cantarán canciones nuevas y familiares con la líder de canciones de SB Revels, Erin McKibben, seguido de una presentación de Revels Dancers del baile country inglés “Upon a Summer’s Day.” Los músicos invitados brindarán un acompañamiento musical animado y optimista, incluyendo las presentaciones de miembros de SB Bagpipe & Drum Corps.

¡Viva la Fiesta!

Fiesta Returns to Santa Barbara

“Fiesta is about community, family, and cultural traditions,” said 2022 La Presidenta Maria Cabrera. “It’s truly Santa Barbara’s premier festival!”

Since 1924, Fiesta has annually united the Santa Barbara community in celebrating its shared history and culture. It also A 1940 parade participant on Cabrillo Boulevard, supports the local where this year’s parade will be held economy, attracting hundreds of tourists. This summer’s events, spanning August 3rd through 7th, mark the first full Fiesta in three years, making the festivities all the more heartfelt. “We look forward to being together,” said Cabrera. “The last two years have been difficult for all of us, and it has changed every single one of us in different ways. What I miss is being together.”

Fiesta’s dance performances will also fully return, beginning with opening night’s Fiesta Pequeña at Old Mission Santa Barbara on the evening of August 3rd. Then, Noches de Ronda will fill the County Courthouse’s Sunken Gardens with music and traditional dancing on the evenings of Thursday to Saturday, August 4th to 6th.

2022 Fiesta La Presidente Maria Cabrera and her husband, Francisco Cabrera

To accommodate individuals who do not feel comfortable attending in-person, KEYT will simulcast Fiesta Pequeña. Old Spanish Days voiced that it will follow the COVID-19 protocols called for this summer. “As always, Old Spanish Days will follow all of the [COVID-19 and health] protocols in place at the time,” said Fiesta Primer Vice Presidente David Bolton. “We take our direction from the city, county public health, the state, and obviously the federal government in terms of the CDC.” Mercado De La Guerra downtown and Mercado del Norte in MacKenzie Park will also invite people to enjoy delicious food, local musicians, and crack cascarones from August 3rd to 6th. Individuals can then shop local artists and vendors at the Fiesta Arts and Crafts Show along Cabrillo Boulevard by West Beach on Saturday and Sunday. The Fiesta Rodeo will also make its comeback at the Earl Warren

The main change distinguishing this summer’s Fiesta is the decision to host El Desfile Histórico along the length of Cabrillo Boulevard instead of traveling up State Street in light of the promenade’s development. The parade will begin at 12pm on Friday, August 5th, and stretch from the traditional parade’s start at Castillo Street to the Hilton Hotel.

“Now that we are going public again, we have a great opportunity for people who may be new to the area, who really don’t know about the great traditions of Fiesta,” said Kirst.

The Old Spanish Days leadership team, Spirits of Fiesta, Saint Barbara, and city officials announced Fiesta’s return from SB City Hall’s steps on April 25th

Showgrounds between August 4th and 7th. Watch for the return of Mutton Bustin’ and more! Old Spanish Days also announced the return of its numerous pre-Fiesta fundraising events, including La Primavera on May 21st, Fiesta Ranchera on June 16th, and the El Presidente Party on July 31st. In the final month leading up to Fiesta, the Santa Barbara Historical Museum will once again invite community members to explore its Project Fiesta in July, detailing the past 90 years of Fiesta history. For more information visit www.sbfiesta.org

Lynn Kirst Named Fiesta’s 2022 Saint Barbara


EPRESENTING OUR CITY’S PATRON SAINT WITH GRACE AND POISE, Lynn Kirst has been named Fiesta’s 2022 Saint Barbara by the Reina del Mar Parlor No. 126 of Native Daughters of the Golden West. Dating back to 1926, each summer a Saint Barbara is named to promote goodwill and history by appearing at Fiesta events in full regalia.

“Not only is it a great honor, but Saint Barbara being the patron saint of the City of Santa Barbara is so apropos because Saint Barbara is the patron saint of architects, and we have such beautiful architecture here,” said 2022 Saint Barbara Lynn Kirst Kirst. “And [she is] also the patron saint of firefighters and calamities, and given that our area has gone through major fires, and calamities, and the pandemic, it’s kind of nice that we have Saint Barbara as our patron saint, and now we’ve come through it all, and we’re looking forward to a great Fiesta.” Kirst attended Bishop Garcia Diego High School before studying art history at the University of Southern California. She then worked in museum fundraising, acting in senior development positions at the Laguna Art Museum, the Southwest Museum, and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Kirst is also a non-fiction writer and photographer, previously writing the Montecito Journal’s “Trail Talks” column for ten years. Kirst is a Sustaining Member of the SB Museum of Art Women’s Board, and serves on the Advisory Boards of Santa Barbara’s Hearts Therapeutic Equestrian Center and the Santa Ynez Valley Therapeutic Riding Program.

ROMISES OF CONFETTI-FILLED DAYS OF SUNSHINE, MARIACHI MUSIC, AND DANCING AT THE COURTHOUSE once again await locals and visitors during this summer’s Fiesta celebrations. Old Spanish Days officials announced the return of the community’s cherished in-person festivities this week, including the return of El Desfile Histórico with a new parade route along Cabrillo Boulevard.

Per tradition, the parade will include horses, musicians, dancers, and floats, including one that will carry the 2022 Saint Barbara, Lynn Kirst. In this role, Kirst hopes to promote greater awareness of the importance of history in our area.

Insomnia Cookies —

Making Downtown SB a Little Sweeter HETHER YOU CRAVE CINNAMONY SNICKERDOODLES, OATMEAL RAISIN, OR CLASSIC CHOCOLATE CHIP, THERE IS NO BETTER MIDNIGHT SNACK THAN A WARM COOKIE. With this thought in mind, Insomnia Cookies opened its Santa Barbara location’s doors in 2020, serving and delivering a whole host of cookies, brownies, and ice cream into the early hours of the morning. In a downtown where late-night snack options are limited, the store has proven to be a local favorite.

“We were inspired to open a Santa Barbara location to satisfy the cravings of local Insomniacs all day and late into the night,” said Danielle Chase, West Coast Regional Director at Insomnia Cookies. “Our Santa Barbara store brings a warm and deliciously indulgent offering to the vibrant local restaurant scene, allowing Insomniacs the ability to bring their dessert dreams to life and feed their culinary curiosity with endless customizable cookie, brownie, and ice cream creations.”

Insomnia Cookies’ downtown store

Insomnia Cookies was launched almost 20 years ago by Seth Berkowitz, who was at the time an undergraduate student at the University of Pennsylvania. Since then, the chain has grown to include over 100 locations nationwide, with all stores

— as its name promises — offering sweet treats late into the night. Photos courtesy of Insomnia Cookies


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

Santa Barbara’s location along the 400 block of State Street has made the store a popular spot to grab a late-night snack downtown, where the majority of restaurants close after the dinner hour. The store’s delivery system has also been utilized by local college students, sending boxes of warm cookies to UC Santa Barbara, SB City College, and Westmont College, not to mention other cookie-hungry locals. With the decadent smell of sweet ice cream and sugar in the air, customers can choose from a wide variety of cookies, including chocolate chunk, double chocolate mint, salted caramel, white chocolate macadamia, and more. The store also offers a rotating selection of limited-edition flavors, such as this month’s spring collection, including a berries & cream cookie and a flower cookie cake. Vegan and gluten-free flavors are available as well. Non-cookie options include brownies and ice cream. Customers can also create their own cookie-ice cream sandwiches. Cookie cakes and cookie packs are also available. In offering this range of individual or party-sized treats, the Insomnia Cookies location aims to provide all of its customers with a sweet experience, day and night. “Whether they’re celebrating life’s latest milestone moment, making meaningful memories with family and friends, or simply craving some ‘me time,’ we’re here to help our Insomniacs indulge in life,” shared Chase.

Spring’s Musical Harvest Continues Campbell Hall Classical Highs:

When the Kanneh-Masons graced the Campbell Hall stage last week, consummate musicality converged with a fascinating and unusual program to create a special night out. Thematically, the program followed a mentorprotégé scheme, between Frank Bridge and his student Benjamin Britten on the British front, in the first half, and Armenian Karen Khachaturian and his student, Russian great Dmitri Shostakovich in the second half. If Bridge’s late romantic swoop-fest left

Isata Kanneh-Mason, piano and Sheku Kanneh-Mason, cello perform at Campbell Hall on April 19, 2022.

something to be desired, Britten’s Cello Sonata was the highlight of the evening, given the composer’s fusion of tonal lyricism and boundary-stretching Modernist touches, expertly rendered here. Khachaturian’s Cello Sonata furthered the trend of 20th century sounds at once accessible and progressive, with Shostakovich’s signature saltiness spicing up the concert’s climactic piece, his Sonata in D minor for Cello and Piano. Between the siblings – part of a yet-larger musical family – an obvious and one could

say “lived-in” sympatico was evident in their musical connection. We hope to catch this family unit back in the 805 soon.

Ray’s Return: Ray LaMontagne, who has wowed crowds at the Santa Barbara Bowl and the Arlington in his unique, scruffy-folky-soulful way, is back on the road and stopping at the Arlington on Wednesday. His last full album was 2020’s earthy Monovision, another fine entry in a distinguished discography including his beloved 2008 Gossip in the Grain, with its loveable “hit” You are the Best Thing.

Speaking of notable acts making their way back to touring, and to our town, the Portland-based indie-folk-rock band Blitzen Trapper makes a welcome return to SOhO on Tuesday. The band, born in 2000, has played in town several times, at SOhO, the once-thriving small-but-mighty club Muddy Waters, and elsewhere. What rang so true and sweet in the thick of the “indie rock” era still impresses, as heard on their slightly surreal, witty, ever-tuneful 2020 album Holy Smokes Future Jokes.

No doubt, at the Arlington, we’ll hear LaMontagne’s new tune I Was Born to Love You, a duet with impressive young Rounder Records artist Sierra Ferrell, who also opens the show. Ferrell’s album of last year, Long Time Coming, swerves soulfully from shades of vintage jazz to new bluegrassy beauty, with a cameo by no less a bluegrass-fired star than Billy Strings (who recently did a two-night stand at the Santa Barbara Bowl).

Head’s up: Music hits the streets next Thursday, when the monthly “1st Thursday” event hosts a series of musicians lining State Street and other downtown hot spots.

To See And Hear: Last weekend, the Santa Barbara Symphony proudly featured the SilverGarburg Piano Duo going to town with a world premiere arrangement, by Austrian composer Richard Dünser, of the Schumann Piano Quartet in E-flat, with strings attached. Hot on the heels of that notable musical event in town, the orchestra returns to the Granada Theater on May 1st and 5th for another special program, dubbed Fandango Picante. Ironically, this make-up date following an Omicron-mandated cancellation earlier this year features the Santa Barbara-connected violinist Anne Akiko Meyers performing Mexican composer Arturo Márquez’

Fandango, a marriage of mariachi and classical manners. She premiered the piece with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl last year. Stars and calendars have aligned to allow for a Cinco de Mayo connection with the May 5th concert. Also on the program is Márquez’ well-known earlier piece Danzón No. 2. The addition of the concert makes for a concentrated threepack of SBS concerts within a month, ending with the season closer, featuring jazz pianist Marcus Roberts and his trio, May 20th and 21st. In a refreshing but logical organizational collaboration, Roberts’ trio will also play in jazz trio mode at the Lobero Theatre on May 18th, while in town.

UCSB Arts & Lectures’ 2021-22 season has, all in all, been a rousing “comeback” season for live music (apart from the lull during the Omicron sneak attack in January). Its classical component has boasted a stellar line-up, including a twofer from the Danish String Quartet, a world premiere (touted in a New York Times piece), Everything Rises, from Jennifer Koh and Davóne Tines, and the Santa Barbara debut of famed British siblings Sheku and Isata Kanneh-Mason. The late-season high profile surge continues in the next week, with the return of the much-celebrated pianist Daniil Trifonov on Saturday and the French-connected duo of cellist Gautier Capuçon and pianist JeanYves Thibaudet on Wednesday.

Ray LaMontagne will play the Arlington on Wednesday, May 4th.

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 News-Press. 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. Woodard is also a musician, a guitarist, songwriter, and head of the Household Ink Records label.

Harbor VOICE Behind the Scenes at the Waterfront


By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

Locals and visitors enjoying the harbor walkway

Photo by Sigrid Toye

HEN I THINK OF HOW MANY TIMES SINCE WRITING THIS COLUMN I’ve trudged up the stairs of the Waterfront Department’s offices on the harbor walkway, I’m already exhausted. If I had that Fitbit armband, I’d have qualified for the LA Marathon, trust me! During those years, despite all the changes brought about by the coronavirus, the crazy fluctuation in temperatures due to climate change, and the occasional appearances of Jaws Jr. in our warmer waters offshore, I’ve come to know that services and assistance provided by the Waterfront Department do not appear out of the mist each morning like the mythological Brigadoon for the benefit of those who work and play along our harbor and waterfront… No siree - it doesn’t just appear… An aerial view of the Santa Barbara harbor reveals the protective arm of the breakwater enveloping 1,100 plus vessels peacefully docked in their slips just a short distance from Stearns Wharf, the city’s iconic landmark. Thousands of visitors arriving by ground, air, and sea (plus the locals!) have a similar mental picture: peaceful, wellordered, and bucolic… in other words, the Brigadoon Effect. But the fact is that the waterfront always has goings-on, 24/7, all year long!

Not a surprise because the area considered “the waterfront” is an expanse of 252 acres. Dissimilar from most city departments, the Waterfront Department is established as an enterprise fund and operates solely from revenues generated from the lands it manages. Tenant rents, boat and parking fees, and other sources are put back into improvements and services. Maintenance, capital improvements, parking, public safety, boat services, and public education are among the services under the department’s umbrella. Also included are the special events that are scheduled during the course of any year such as the July 4th fireworks display, the Harbor Festival, holiday events, and others. And that’s just during the “normal times.” But what about the “not so normal times,” like the last couple of years? “The Waterfront Department was not immune to the effects of COVID,” said Mike Wiltshire, Director of the Waterfront Department, responding to my inquiry regarding the coronavirus lockdown and restrictions. “Over the last two years there have been numerous impacts to the operations and budget.” He recalled that approximately 1.6 million dollars in rental revenue from waterfront area tenants had to be deferred for local business owners to keep their doors open during the shutdown, consequently depriving the Waterfront Department of essential income. The cancelation of 45 scheduled cruise ship visits resulted in an additional loss of roughly $750,000 of proceeds. “The department was forced to terminate over 30 hourly employees, a great loss to us and to the employees and their families while we kept essential positions vacant.” With the decrease in revenue, roughly $2 million in capital maintenance projects had to be delayed or deferred. “‘When these revenues aren’t coming in, we have to take measures to balance our budget by cutting costs, services, and maintenance of our infrastructure,” noted Wilshire regretfully. But what a difference a month or two came make! “The Waterfront Department is optimistic … and there are signs that the worst of the pandemic’s economic woes are behind us,” Wiltshire stated. He observed that over the last few months there has been a very strong return to the wharf, harbor, and beaches. Good news also for area tenants who make their livelihood from the increased traffic. Sounds like things are picking up at last! On a personal note, I also find it gratifying having enjoyed the weekend down at the harbor. In closing, I include a word of caution: the harbor is no exception and that crazy coronavirus may not yet be done with us. So take care of yourselves, keep that mask on hand, exercise caution, and stay tuned! Sigrid Toye volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project.

Fundraising Drive Continues for Plaza del Mar Band Shell A FUNDRAISING DRIVE IS UNDERWAY to raise the final money needed to renovate the historic band shell at the Plaza del Mar - Pershing Park site in Santa Barbara. About $50,000 is left to be raised, with the project estimated to cost approximately $800,000. The band shell was established in 1919, and is in need of various repairs and renovations. “Let’s get ADA access, getting electrical in there, maybe some lighting, and getting it more of a usable facility so it then becomes turnkey,” said PARC Foundation member Ed Cavasos. The project will not change all aspects of the band shell. “We don’t have to totally tear this down, we’ve got to clean it up; we’ve got to hook into the grid; then we’ve got to start using it,” said Casavos.

SB County Education Office Honors Six War Veterans with Retroactive High School Diplomas


IX VETERANS WHO WERE UNABLE TO COMPLETE THEIR HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATION DUE TO MILITARY SERVICE OR INTERNMENT IN A RELOCATION CAMP finally were presented their high school diplomas in a special April 7th graduation ceremony. Hosted by the Santa Barbara County Education Office, four of the six diplomas were awarded posthumously through family members who received the diploma on behalf of their deceased father or grandfather. Over 200 community members attended to honor the veterans. Diploma recipients included: Guadalupe Lopez; Marcos Ramirez Carrillo, represented by his daughters Molly Carrillo-Walker and Julia Cory; Jesus Torres Jr., represented by his daughter, Ana Torres; Modesto T. Cardenas, represented by his granddaughter Destiny Trigueros; and Shukichi Hokedo, represented by his son, Paul Hokedo. Clark Hoyt also received a diploma, but was not present at the ceremony. “After the tremendous service you’ve given, and the sacrifices you’ve made, it is now our moment to provide a tangible acknowledgment of our gratitude in your honor, and in honor of your legacies,” said County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Susan Salcido to the audience. “To those of you who are here on behalf of a veteran who is no longer with us, we are so deeply grateful that you have chosen to be part of this milestone occasion in tribute to your loved one. Today, we are recognizing individuals who have served our country and then went on to serve their communities. Their life’s work reflects

SB Education Foundation Executive Director Margie Yahyavi Steps Aside


ARGIE YAHYAVI WILL STEP DOWN FROM HER POSITION AS ETHE XECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF THE SANTA BARBARA EDUCATION FOUNDATION after serving with the organization over the past twelve years. She joined the Foundation in 2010 as its only part-time employee with annual revenues of $300,000. During her tenure, SBEF’s staff grew to five positions and an annual budget of $2.5 million, supporting ten SBEF programs and serving as a fiscal sponsor for 14 other education programs. “I’ve loved every minute of working with this organization, the program directors, the donors, the community, all of it,” said Yahyavi. Margie Yahyavi

SBEF hosts long-running summer music programs for local students, including the much-loved Nick Rail Summer Band Camp. Yahyavi created the Get Ahead Program, a passion project that enabled high school students to earn academic credits during the summer. While SBEF operates independently of the SB Unified School District, it frequently supports district initiatives. During Yahyavi’s tenure, she secured funding to pilot and launch SB Unified’s literacy intervention program for struggling readers, a grant program for teachers awarding more than $100,000 annually, and an emergency fund that provided wi-fi access for students and their families during the pandemic. Yahyavi will remain with the organization during its search for a new Executive Director, and will help facilitate the transition to new leadership. She looks forward to spending more time with her family and exploring new endeavors. Visit www.santabarbaraeducation.org

Housing Trust Fund Launches North County Workforce Homebuyer Program


O EXPAND HOMEOWNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES FOR LOCAL WORKING FAMILIES AND INDIVIDUALS, the Housing Trust Fund of Santa Barbara County has relaunched its North County Workforce Homebuyer Program. The program helps bridge the homeownership affordability gap for local employees by providing 30-year deferred payment loans up to 20 percent of the home purchase price or a maximum loan of $100,000 to assist lower income households in purchasing an entry-level home in the community. A combined $2.2 million in funding for the program has been provided through grants to HTF from the State Department of Housing and Community Development CalHome Program, and the County of SB Housing and Community Development department. Funds from the program may be used for down payment and closing costs for households who earn a maximum of 80 percent of the Area Median Income. The loans have no current interest or principal payments, accrued simple annual interest at three percent per year and are repaid upon sale, transfer or refinancing of the home or at the end of the loan term.

The Goleta City Council meets biweekly on Tuesdays at 5:30pm • To learn more about the council and other City department meetings, visit www.cityofgoleta.org

Applicants must be residents of or work within the county, be a part of a lowincome household and agree to have their income certified, take a homebuyer education course, be pre-approved for a fixed-rate 30-year first mortgage loan from one of HTF’ lending partners and contribute three to 3.5 percent in cash towards the purchase of their home. Applicants must also be a first-time homebuyer.

The Carpinteria City Council meets on the second and fourth Monday of the month at 5:30pm • To learn more about the council and other City department meetings, visit www.carpinteriaca.gov

Restoring the Band Shell at Plaza del Mar Santa Barbara Foundation


Tuohy Foundation


Ann Jackson Family Foundation






A Stage For The Whole Community

Renovation of the Band Shell will revitalize Plaza del Mar for music, drama, dance, and celebratory events. As a public park, the City provides low-cost access for non-profit organizations that serve a broad cross-section of the community.

Project Partners And Funding

The PARC Foundation The Parks and Recreation Community (PARC) Foundation is partnered with the Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department to raise the funds needed to achieve Band Shell renovation. To make a donation to this exciting project, please visit the PARC Foundation website at www.parcsb.org.


All the funding needed to complete the project is $45,000.

A Parks and Recreation Department and Parc Foundation Project Established as a City park in 1899, Plaza del Mar was a favorite location for strolling and outdoor gatherings. The Plaza del Mar Band Shell, a designated City of Santa Barbara landmark, was constructed in 1919 to provide a venue for public concerts. Five thousand people attended the opening concert on May 4, 1919, which featured a 22-piece municipal band.

Home Construction Catching Up


HE MOST RESIDENTIAL UNITS are under construction since 1973 according to Calculated Risk’s Bill McBride.

“Combined, there are 1.622 million units under construction. It is the most since February 1973, when a record 1.628 million units were under construction (mostly apartments in 1973 for the baby boom generation),” he wrote. And privately‐owned housing starts (new construction) in March of this year were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,793,000, which should keep builders and homebuyers satisfied for the rest of this year, at least. New starts are 0.3 percent above the revised February estimate of 1,788,000 and 3.9 percent above the March 2021 rate of 1,725,000. Single‐family housing starts in March were at a rate of 1,200,000; this is 1.7 percent below the revised February figure

of 1,221,000. The March rate for units in buildings with five units or more was 574,000.

out of the housing market with limited incomes.

Housing construction should now begin to catch up to demand. Many of the single-family and rental unit completions were held up by supply delays during the pandemic that are finally beginning to ease as the pandemic has eased.

“The housing market faces an inflection point as an unexpectedly quick rise in interest rates, rising home prices, and escalating material costs have significantly decreased housing affordability conditions, particularly in the crucial entry-level market,” said NAHB Chief Economist Robert Dietz.

Builder confidence is still high for newly built single-family homes, though it moved two points lower to 77 in April, according to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)/Wells Fargo Housing Market Index (HMI) released today [April 21, 2022]. This is the fourth straight month that builder sentiment has declined, but it is still above the 60s index confidence levels that prevailed in earlier decades.

Mortgage interest rates have jumped more than 1.9 percentage points since the start of the year and currently stand at five percent, the highest level in more than a decade, as can be seen with the FRED graph of historical 30yr conforming fixed rates. They were as low as 2.5 percent in the past two years during the pandemic.


But there are still problems with rising interest rates that makes everything more expensive and knocks many first-time buyers

a hit on purchasing power,” Lawrence Yun, chief economist for the National Association of REALTORS, said in the report. “Still, homes are selling rapidly, and home price gains remain in the double-digits.” Yun now predicts that home sales will contract by ten percent in 2022, as surging mortgage rates curb home-buying demand and home-price growth. With slower demand, the inventory of unsold existing homes increased to 950,000 as of the end of March. That would support 2.0 months at the monthly sales pace, which is still way below the four to six month supply available, historically. So, we will depend on the construction of more rental units, apartments, to satisfy the continued demand for housing in years to come, just as we did in the 1970s for the growing population of baby boomers.

Art of The Jewish Deli – at Skirball Art Matters

The exhibition, with its appropriately theatrical installation, tells the story of the Jewish delicatessen when more than two million Jewish immigrants settled in the United States between 1880 and 1924. In today’s LA Times article, Tasty Nosh on Jewish Delis at Skirball, one reads that the Jewish deli was brought here from eastern and central Europe and has become mainstream in American life, “It has gone from being a humble Jewish cuisine to being an important part of American culture.”

When Harry Met Sally, 1989

Like a good Jewish boy, I am eating my Matzah Ball soup right now while writing this, which makes me think about the delicious food served at Skirball during the exhibition reception. So, my friends, I definitely recommend that you not only see this exhibition, but also taste the food at Zeidler’s Café at Skirball. The exhibition runs through September 4th. Another challenging exhibition I had the pleasure of seeing recently was the one at Craft in America Center on W. Third Street east of La Cienega. This first ever retrospective of LA artist, Ferne Jacobs (b. 1942), covers 50 years of her career focused on fiber sculptures. “Reinventing and advancing traditional techniques used for basketry, including knotting, coiling, and twining, Jacobs has generated an entirely new language of sculptural art.”

KIRBALL CULTURAL CENTER’S NEW EXHIBITION, “I’ll Have What She’s Having”: The Jewish Deli, is not only properly informative, but is delicious and even a touch naughty. And when I say naughty, I mean sexy. How else can you explain the exhibition’s title with its reference to the unforgettable scene in the romantic comedy, When Harry Met Sally? It is the moment when Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan’s characters share a meal at Katz’s Delicatessen arguing over sex and relationships. Sally with her ecstatic moans pretends to have a climax making everyone in the deli stare at her. Then, an elderly woman stops the waiter and delivers the famous line, “I’ll have what she’s having!!!”

I’ll Have What She’s Having: The Jewish Deli Skirball Cultural Center

Looking closely at her small and medium-sized sculptures, it is difficult to avoid the temptation of touching them not just with your eyes, but with your fingers. Their texture, their color stays with you even after you’ve moved away. To my surprise, some of Jacobs’ abstract-shaped sculptures made me think about human bodies hugging each other. And all of them, either hanging on the walls or sitting on a pedestal, refuse to stand still. They have a hidden personality and energy of dancers ready to perform. This must-see exhibition runs through June 18th. And while you are there, check out the adjacent gift shop, Free Hand, presenting an amazing variety of artifacts. I also paid my respects to Easter by watching the documentary, Easter In Art, at the Laemmle Theater. I will pay respect to one of my Gods—Raphael—by watching a documentary about his art commemorating 500 years since his passing. Talk about timeless art...

Tree-of-the-Month, April 2022:

Western Redbud Cercis occidentalis


By David Gress / Special to VOICE

Photos by David Gress

HE WESTERN REDBUD is a California native tree with a big wow factor! For several weeks in the spring, it produces a dazzling display of magentaWestern Redbud pink flowers that immediately catches the eye. Despite its relatively small stature (six- to 15-feet tall), it makes a large splash of color. It is a drought-resistant form of the closely related Eastern Redbud, with many of the same desirable family attributes. (The Eastern Redbud was Tree-of-the Month in March 2022.) The Western Redbud differs from its eastern cousin by being smaller, having somewhat larger and more reddish flowers, bearing larger seed pods, and carrying a denser and more rounded crown. While the Western Redbud has attractive features in all seasons, its spring flowers are its glory. In March and April, clusters of lustrous magenta-pink flowers seem to magically appear on its bare, shiny-brown, branches. Flowers can even occur sporadically into early summer, well after the leaves have emerged. The flowers, shaped like pea blossoms, are tiny (½ inch wide), “perfect” (meaning they each have both male and female reproductive parts), and hug the branches or hang on short racemes in clusters of varying Western Redbud Seed Pods numbers. Sweet nectar is produced deep in the throats of these little flowers; only long-tongued bees, such as carpenter bees and bumble bees, can drink there. Hummingbirds and butterflies also find the nectar delicious. All of these serve as pollinators. Redbuds are in the Legume family (Fabaceae); consequently, their pollinated flowers create seed pods (up to four-inches long and ½ inch wide) that look much like common snap peas, each pod containing ten to twelve brown seeds (¼ inch long). In autumn, after the spent leaves have fallen, these maroon-brown seed pods continue to hang decoratively from the branches. During the winter months, the tree shows a lovely sculptural silhouette. The leaves have their own distinct beauty. They are three-inchlong and are normally heart-shaped with a rounded tip. Occasionally, they are notched on the tip and slightly folded upwards - creating a charming vision of opened butterfly wings. New leaves emerge a glossy bronze in color; as they mature, this changes to light green and then to a satiny darker green. In the fall in colder locations, they will turn a vibrant yellow and red. Western Redbud Flowers


The Western Redbud’s native range spreads from California’s Sierra Nevada foothills to the coastal ranges of Northern California and down into San Diego County, with small populations also in Southern Utah and Northern Arizona below 4,000 feet. It is found in foothill woodland and chaparral plant communities, on dry hillsides in arroyos and canyons, usually near sources of water. These locations normally provide higher rates of seasonal rainfall and colder winter temperatures than in the Santa Barbara area. Established trees are cold hardy down to ten degrees Fahrenheit. This tree is perfectly suited for our Mediterranean climate. Even though it is admirably adapted to survive in drought conditions, it certainly will thrive with garden irrigation - and will look better with a little extra water. It can grow in full sun or partial shade. The best flowering occurs in areas with cold airflow, such as in canyons and near creeks. While it prefers well-drained soils, it will adapt to most soil conditions, including clays. It is relatively maintenance-free. Remarkably, it is highly resistant to oak root fungus (Armillaria), which is such a stubborn problem in all our local soils. It naturally grows as a large shrub or low-branched tree; however, given judicious pruning early in its life, it can be trained into a single- or multiple-trunked tree. It can be propagated easily from seed or cuttings. When grown from seed, it can be highly variable in its volume and color of blooms. In rare instances, a white-flowered variety will be found growing naturally in the wild; a white-flowered cultivar, ‘Alba’, is sometimes commercially available. The botanical name for Western Redbud is Cercis occidentalis. The genus name, Cercis, comes from the Greek word, “kerkis,” meaning “weaver’s shuttle,” referring to the shape of its seed pods. The specific epithet, occidentalis, refers to the word, “occidental,” meaning a native of the west. The Western Redbud has a wide range of uses in the garden. It is an absolute must for a California native garden. Its smaller size makes it perfect for areas with limited space - as it can be an excellent patio tree, a lovely small garden accent, or a fine specimen in a decorative pot. Planted in a line, it can be an attractive screen. In a mass planting, it can make a dramatic statement and can stabilize slopes. Western Redbud can be seen at Alice Keck Park Memorial Garden, at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, and in many local private gardens. Given its fine qualities, it is a native tree that really should be planted more frequently in our landscapes. Tree-of-the-Month articles are sponsored by Santa Barbara Beautiful, whose mission includes increasing public awareness and appreciation of Santa Barbara’s many outstanding trees and, in a long-time partnership with the City Parks & Recreation Department, the funding and planting of trees along the City’s streets. Those who wish to honor a special someone can do so with an attractive commemorative marker that will be installed at the base of an existing street tree in the City of Santa Barbara. Because Santa Barbara Beautiful has participated in the planting to date of over 13,000 street trees, there are plenty of trees from which to choose!

Children's Event


GARDENING, COMPOSTING, AND FOOD JUSTICE This quarter’s children’s and family event will focus on the food we eat and all ages are welcome to participate. We will learn the basics of gardening, explore worms through composting, and learn about food justice. Afterwards, participants will then get to taste the food they planted (MCC Courtyard). Participants will also take away gardening starter kits and one of many children books related to food justice and gardening as tools to learn how to eat and stay healthy. After all, if you want to feel good, you have to eat good!
