Jacob Collier to Light up Santa Barbara

Djesse Vol. 4. North American Tour

PLUGGED IN AND SWITCHED ON, Jacob Collier will bring his music and incredible performance to the Arlington Theatre on May 19th, presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures.

A viral sensation and five time Grammy winner at age 29, Jacob Collier last appeared in Santa Barbara at the UCSB Arts & Lectures season kick-off event, which was an ecstatic sold-out debut at Campbell Hall.

“The language of musical harmony is an absolutely extraordinary one. It's a way of navigating one's emotional frameworks, but without the need to put things into words, and I think that, as with many other languages, it doesn't matter how much you know about a language," he once said on TED Radio Hour.

Collier’s thrilling blend of instrumental and vocal virtuosity, pop showmanship, and uniquely immersive audience engagement are the talk of the musical world. Catch Collier on his largest North American tour to date performing music from his new album Djesse Vol. 4 live with his band.

Recognized by audiences, critics, and fellow musicians alike as one of the most gifted young artists of modern times, Collier already boasts a seemingly endless list of achievements. On top of his Grammy wins — which saw him become the first British act in history to win four Grammys for each of his first four albums — he's had 11 Grammy nominations including Album of the Year in 2021.

Collier has an astounding roster of collaborators. He has recorded or performed with UK music icons such as Coldplay and Stormzy, and also with American superstars like SZA, Alicia Keys, John Mayer, Malian singer Oumou Sangaré, and Moroccan Gnawa mâalem Hamid El Kasri.

Each artist has sought out Collier’s distinct musical identity, helping to cement his status as the conduit for a generation’s ineffable creativity.

Collier has now embarked on the finale of his 4 Volume epic Djesse series, with Volume 4 released in February. Its most recent single, "Little Blue," features

Collier's prolific output and enthusiasm can be attributed to growing up unencumbered by musical constraints. As a child, He turned down classical piano lessons when offered, determined to strike out on his own path. This is reflected in his approach to making music.

Opening for Collier will be Kimbra, a New Zealand-born pop star who is a musical force innovating the shape of pop music today. Her 2011 debut album Vows, reached No. 14 on the Billboard Top 200 and was certified platinum in Australia and New Zealand.

Kimbra exploded into the public consciousness that same year with Somebody That I Used to Know, a duet with Gotye that earned her two Grammy Awards for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/

Performance. The song topped Billboard’s Hot 100 chart in 2012 and was the best selling song of that year in the U.S., eventually selling over 13 million copies. In 2014, she released the highly acclaimed album The Golden Echo, recruiting artists as diverse as Thundercat, Omar Rodríguez-López of the Mars Volta, Bilal, and John Legend to highlight her eclectic musical style. Kimbra released her third LP, Primal Heart, which she co-produced with Grammywinning producer John Congleton (St. Vincent, Goldfrapp)

in 2018. In 2023, she followed Primal Heart with A Reckoning, the latter release demonstrating her ability to surprise audiences with distinct moods and collaborations.

Jacob Collier is presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures. Community Partners, the Natalie Orfalea Foundation & Lou Buglioli, have provided generous support for the 20232024 season.

For tickets ($125 Gold Circle, preferred seating / $100 / $75 / $60 / $45 / $20 UCSB students (Current student ID required) call UCSB Arts & Lectures at 805-893-3535 or visit www.ArtsAndLectures.UCSB.edu.

Compassionate Care of Carpinteria hosts the 6th Annual

The Light Shines Ahead Luncheon

WCarpinteria Local Jessica Clark will share her Personal Story of Love, Loss, and Transformation

ITH SOULFUL STORIES AND THE PROMISE OF COMMUNITY SERVICE, KINDNESS, AND NEEDED CARE DELIVERED, Compassionate Care of Carpinteria will host its 6th Annual luncheon, The Light Shines Ahead, on Thursday, May 16th, 2024, from 11:30am to 1:30pm at the Rincon Beach Club, 3805 Santa Claus Lane, Carpinteria. The impact of CCC, an initiative of Hospice of Santa Barbara, has been tremendous and is helping to fulfill a need for grief counseling and end of life care and support for anyone who needs it in the Carpinteria Community—just as Hospice of Santa Barbara provides for the greater Santa Barbara community.

a great deal of Carpinteria community support, which helped her through the darkest of times.

This transition made Clark a widow, just when all of her friends were getting married and having children.

“I saw my friends moving forward with their lives, the life I thought I would be living, too, and it was hard and lonely. I felt isolated and wasn’t sure where I belonged. I was at widow at 26. It was hard to find peers who could relate to my circumstances,” Clark related.

And then a year later her dad died in 2005, also from cancer.

a large portion of our community that doesn’t have the kind of emotional support that she had and, therefore, wants to shine light on the free services of CCC so others can get the help they need in a similar situation.

Clark is also deeply engaged in grassroots initiatives aimed at fostering community support and empowerment.

She started a club in Carpinteria called Club Kind, where local women help others in need in a variety of ways providing gift cards, plane tickets, and even art supplies for one local homeless artist...anywhere there might be a need or gap.

The Light Shines Ahead luncheon will feature special guest speaker Jessica Clark, owner and founder of The Connected Co. Clark’s dedication to her community was forged through both triumph and tragedy. After enduring the loss of her first husband and her father within a year to cancer, she found solace and strength in the support of her community.

Clark is a Carpinteria native, graduating from Carpinteria High School in 1995. She went on to study at SBCC and transferred to San Diego State where she earned a B.A. in Communications in 2001. She then moved back to the Carpinteria area.

Her journey with grief began after her first husband, another local Eric Pintard, died of cancer in 2004. He was initially given six months to live and ended up living for 11 years. During Pintard’s long illness and after his death, Jessica received

“My relationship with my dad was amazing,” said Clark. He taught my sister and I the value of hard, honest work and the importance of doing things with integrity. We were extremely close with him, and I feel a big void without him. I try my best to live my life in a way that will honor his memory and carry on his legacy of compassion.”

With the support of her friends and the Carpinteria community she found the strength to keep moving forward and a bit of serendipity and timing led her to her current husband, Kevin Clark, who had lost his parents when he was in his twenties. This shared experience of loss and grief helped bring them closer together. They were married soon after and now have two children, daughter Harper, 11 and son Dax, 9. She credits Kevin with helping her to be vulnerable again.

The profound love and assistance Jessica experienced in the wake of her sadness ignited her commitment to her work as well as giving back with a renewed sense of purpose. She realized there is

She and her husband have gone on to establish, manage, and sell multiple restaurants in the region including three in Carpinteria; Corktree Cellars, PB&J, and Rincon Brewery. She has recently ventured into business coaching and consulting and launched the company, The Connected Co.

The Light Shines Ahead luncheon will also feature steering committee chair, Marybeth Carty; Virginia Benson Wigle, founder of the Starfish Connection, a nonprofit organization offering bridge gap grants to individuals who would otherwise fall through the cracks; and David Selberg, Hospice of Santa Barbara’s CEO.

“The Light Shines Ahead has become a beloved annual event and fundraiser that brings this compassionate and close-knit community together to

support our work in Carpinteria,” said Selberg. “We look forward to once again gathering with fellow CCC supporters, united in our dedication to offering assistance to anyone affected by serious illness or coping with the loss of a loved one.”

Compassionate Care of Carpinteria an initiative of Hospice of Santa Barbara offers programs and services, completely free of charge, to adults, children and seniors who are struggling with grief or life-threatening illness. Services include counseling, practical care, and medical navigation. All services are offered in English and Spanish throughout Carpinteria. Since the beginnings of Hospice of Santa Barbara fifty years ago, the organization has been proud to serve children and families in Carpinteria struggling with the loss of a loved one or coping with life-threatening illness.

Carbajal Urges President Biden to Uphold U.S. Law Regarding Humanitarian Aid to Gaza

CONGRESSMAN SALUD CARBAJAL, A SENIOR MEMBER OF THE HOUSE ARMED SERVICES COMMITTEE and a U.S. Marine Corps veteran, has urged President Biden to enforce U.S. law and policy amid evidence and reports that Israel has restricted the flow of U.S. aid to Gaza, where over one million Palestinians are experiencing catastrophic levels of starvation.

In a letter to President Biden, Carbajal and 86 Members of Congress raised concerns about the Israeli government’s conduct of the war in Gaza, especially its restrictive policies on humanitarian assistance. The letter also calls for the administration to enforce National Security Memorandum 20 and its underlying law, Section 620I of the Foreign Assistance Act.

“Section 620I of the Foreign Assistance Act prohibits the United States from providing security assistance

DignityMoves’ La Posada Village

Recognized by County Board of Supervisors

For arms sales to any country when the President is made aware that the government ‘prohibits or otherwise restricts, directly or indirectly, the transport or delivery of United States humanitarian assistance,’” the members wrote. “We believe that despite recent advancements, there is sufficient evidence that Israel’s restrictions on the delivery of US-backed humanitarian aid violate Section 620I of the Foreign Assistance Act, and therefore call into question the assurances Israel provided pursuant to National Security Memorandum 20.”

The new letter comes two weeks after Carbajal helped Congress approve $9 billion in humanitarian aid as part of the latest national security funding package.

ILLING THE IMPORTANT NEED OF TRANSITIONAL HOUSING, DignityMoves grand opening of La Posada Village was honored and recognized by The County of Santa Barbara Board of Supervisors.

Supervisor Laura Capps and Aaron Edelheit, DignityMoves Advisory Board Member who received the award on behalf of the organization

“La Posada opens doors for some of our community’s most vulnerable. It opens doors for shelter, food, warmth, and safety. It opens doors for a chance to forge a new path and to reclaim dignity and hope. I couldn’t be more proud of the County for partnering with DignityMoves to address the issue of homelessness head on – and to have La Posada housed in the Second District,” said Supervisor Laura Capps

La Posada opened on Friday, April 12 at 4500 Hollister Avenue in Santa Barbara, the former Santa Barbara County Juvenile Hall site. The 80-unit housing community is meant to close the gap between living unsheltered and achieving housing stability through a collaboration between DignityMoves, the County of Santa Barbara, and Good Samaritan Shelter, the service provider and operator.

“This recognition is very meaningful for DignityMoves as it validates the important work that we are doing with our partners including Santa Barbara County and Good Samaritan, the service provider for the Village,” said Jack Lorenz, Regional Advancement Officer, Santa Barbara. “We are grateful for the leadership of our SB County Supervisors,” said Lorenz.

This location will serve individuals living in encampments near the 101 freeway and nearby railroad tracks. With 24/7 security, intensive case management, three free meals a day, and on-site mental and physical healthcare services as well as transportation access, La Posada will help unhoused individuals reach the stability they need to focus on their mental health, addiction recovery, career exploration and longer-term stable housing solutions.

In partnership with the County of Santa Barbara and Good Samaritan, DignityMoves’ La Posada Village is part of a Santa Barbara County-wide effort to end homelessness.

Congressman Carbajal advocated for the passage of that humanitarian aid over the past six months, and has continued to push the Biden Administration to help scale up efforts to deliver life-saving aid to Palestinian civilians in Gaza, seek the renewal of a humanitarian ceasefire, secure the release of the remaining hostages held by Hamas, and emphasize to Israel the need for a strategy that protects civilian life.

In addition, Rep. Carbajal has repeatedly voiced concerns to President Biden over Israel’s military operational strategies, and signed a resolution calling for a renewal of a humanitarian ceasefire that had previously helped facilitate safe delivery of humanitarian aid and the release of hostages being held by Hamas.

Oil Spill Settlement Totals $70 Million For Property Owners A

PIPELINE RUPTURE AND OIL SPILL NINE YEARS AGO, along the Santa Barbara coastline and on private property, near Refugio State Beach and into the Pacific Ocean, has resulted in the preliminarily approval of a $70 million class action award, by U.S. District Court Judge Philip Gutierrez, on May 1st.

The case, titled Grey Fox, LLC et. al v. Plains All American Pipeline, L.P., et. al, in U.S. District Court, Central District (Case Number 2:16-cv-03157-PSG-JEM) is to satisfy all outstanding class claims. The attorney’s epresenting the property owners are Cappello & Noël LLP, Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein LLP and Keller Rohrback LLP.

In 1991, Celeron Pipeline Company of California (predecessor to Plains All American Pipeline), built pipelines on 130 miles of private property to transport crude oil and other liquids from the California coast to inland refinery markets in California. At the time, property owners signed easement contracts “allowing Lines 901 and 903 pipelines to be built on their property with the easement contracts stating the pipeline owners would maintain, operate and repair the pipeline as needed.”

One year after the May 19, 2015 oil spill, the Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration concluded that the cause of the rupture was integrity management failures by its then-owner, Plains.

The Settlement class consists of private owners of 183 class properties. The owner of each of the class properties is proposed to receive at least $50,000, with average payments of $230,000.

In addition, Sable Offshore Corp., the current pipeline owner, agrees that the ruptured pipeline will not be replaced with a second, new pipeline system without first renewing easement agreements and that Sable agrees to safely operate the pipeline under a Federal Consent Decree requiring the defendant to follow requirements for pipeline maintenance and operation under federal regulations. Sable also agrees to take necessary steps to install automatic shutoff valves on the pipeline. In addition, Sable must use the best available safety technologies to restart the pipeline. In exchange, the class agrees that the settling parties may repair and re-open the pipeline and record notice of easement clarifications.

Class members will receive direct mail notice of the settlement. A settlement website and tollfree number will be created to provide settlement details. A fairness hearing is set for September 13, 2024 to determine whether the Settlement should receive final approval. Class members have up to 15 days before the hearing to file a response to the settlement approval.

For a copy of the proposed Settlement and for more information, please contact Mandy Duong, mduong@cappellonoel.com, 805-564-2444.

How Campus Protests Could Shape the 2024 Elections — And Not Just the Presidency

With hundreds of arrests and more campus standoffs looming, local law enforcement officials could face consequences at the ballot box.

STUDENT PROTESTERS ARE CAMPING OUT AND TAKING OVER BUILDINGS, demanding that their universities divest from companies connected to Israel’s war in Gaza. Police have already arrested hundreds, and university leaders are deciding whether to forcibly eject them ahead of graduation ceremonies. Seeking their own advantage from the moment, politicians are pushing university presidents to resign, calling for more arrests and deportations of foreign students and demanding that President Joe Biden call in the National Guard.

This all may sound familiar, given how calls for law and order on college campuses are part of a long political tradition, particularly on the right. During the Vietnam War, Ronald Reagan accused campus “beatniks” and “radicals” of fomenting “anarchy” as he ran for California governor in 1966. Today’s anti-war protests recall demands to divest from South Africa in the 1980s.

But here is a new dynamic: Local prosecutors, now beginning to face questions about how they’ll handle charges against student protesters, may find that their decisions matter when they seek reelection this fall and beyond.

A decade of Black Lives Matter protests against killings by police, and ensuing news coverage, have educated the public about the choices facing prosecutors, judges, police chiefs and sheriffs. District attorneys used to run quiet races with little opposition; now they attract donations from billionaires and endorsements from celebrities.

Add this to the growing generational divide over Israel and the future of the Palestinian people, and efforts in state legislatures to target students involved in proPalestine activism. These developments altogether suggest that during the 2024 election, voters may think about Israel and Gaza not only when they consider the presidency or Congress — the people with actual power over foreign policy — but also far down the ballot, where choices about policing and prosecution are made.

“The overwhelming police response to what appears to have been a peaceful demonstration should be concerning to all who believe in our Constitution.”

Travis County Attorney Delia Garza

These tensions have already flared in Austin, Texas, where I live. Last Wednesday, hundreds of University of Texas students walked out of class to protest the school’s financial ties to Israel’s military. “These protesters belong in jail,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott wrote on X, earning praise from some Jewish students who say they feel unsafe on campus. (Across the country, there is an ongoing debate about whether specific slogans cross a line into antisemitism, but the protesters — some of whom are themselves Jewish — broadly deny antisemitic intent.) The Texas Tribune reported that the demonstration “showed no signs of violence before authorities intervened.” State troopers descended upon the campus with horses and riot gear, wrestling protesters to the ground and zip-tying their wrists.

By that evening, 57 people were in jail on trespassing charges.

But over the next two days, all the protesters walked free.

County Attorney Delia Garza, who prosecutes misdemeanors in Travis County, dropped the charges while citing “deficiencies” in police affidavits. But she also criticized the arrests themselves, saying in a statement, “The overwhelming police response to what appears to have been a peaceful demonstration should be concerning to all who believe in our Constitution.”

Over the weekend, I saw a fundraising text message from Travis County District Attorney José Garza (no relation to Delia) referring with alarm to “crackdowns on protesting students” and criticizing Abbott directly.

He defeated a Republican-funded primary challenger in March and is currently unopposed in November. But he is also facing a lawsuit seeking his removal, under a new state law championed by Abbott and other Republicans as part of a larger conflict between blue cities and red states.

Although I have not found more examples of local prosecutors fundraising off the campus protest crackdowns, a few have made statements that appear calculated to appeal to their progressive bases. “This office is not interested in prosecuting people for exercising their First Amendment rights,” a spokesperson for Sam Bregman, the prosecutor for Bernalillo County, New Mexico, told The Appeal. Bernalillo County includes the University of New Mexico campus, where there is currently a student encampment. Although New Mexico State Police have also arrested students, the state’s Democratic governor has not been publicly cheering them on.

Cook County State’s Attorney Kim Foxx recently told the Chicago Tribune her office will not “prosecute protesters arrested for disorderly conduct, unlawful gathering or criminal trespass to state-supported land, among other laws.” But her caveat is that protesters must remain “peaceful,” and that she would set the policy aside entirely for the Democratic National Convention in August, sure to draw massive protests about Israel and Palestine, and much else.

In the coming months, we’ll see scrutiny of the harshest measures that have been used by police at these protests so far, including the use of a Taser and rubber bullets at Emory University, guns pointed at Ohio State protests and the forcible removal of Muslim women’s hijabs at Arizona State University. The courts will also consider possible felony allegations against protesters.

Beyond criminal penalties, university leaders will have to decide whether to expel or ban student protesters from campus. And there will surely be debates about the choices made to bring police to campus in the first place. Some of these calls are being made by private university administrators, who answer to their own students, faculty, donors and trustees. Others are made at public universities, which are overseen by state governors and legislatures, who officially answer to voters.

But it will be in elections of prosecutors, sheriffs and judges that voting this November could have a direct impact on the fate of campus protesters — and, by extension, the demands they are making.

Santa Barbara Zoo Director Recognized as Pioneering Female Conservationist

DR. ESTELLE SANDHAUS, DIRECTOR OF CONSERVATION & SCIENCE AT THE SANTA BARBARA ZOO, has been recognized by the Disney Conservation Fund for her pioneering work in the field of conservation.

“We are incredibly fortunate to have such a visionary leader in conservation like Estelle on our team at the Santa Barbara Zoo,” shared Rich Block, President & CEO of the Santa Barbara Zoo. “Her dedication and passion for conservation have not only benefited the wildlife she and her team work so directly to protect but have also inspired those around her.”

Estelle’s journey in conservation began as a biology student at the University of California, San Diego, volunteering for the San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance’s giant panda project. This led her into graduate research, eventually landing her at the Santa Barbara Zoo, which works with various agencies to recover threatened and endangered species endemic to their biodiverse region. Under her leadership the Santa Barbara Zoo partnered with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to develop the California Condor Nest Guarding Program, and condor nest success has dramatically increased. Today, more than one quarter of the southern California condor flock is wild-born.


Gastroenterologist Dr. Mick Meiselman Joins Sansum Clinic

WITH EXTENSIVE TRAINING AND EXPERTISE IN ENDOSCOPIC ULTRASOUND, Dr. Mick Meiselman, a board-certified and fellowship-trained gastroenterologist, is joining Sansum Clinic.

In his role, Dr. Meiselman will be working with Clinic and community gastroenterologists, surgeons, oncologists and doctors when they notice areas of concern in another form of imaging like a CT or MRI, or they have patients with gastrointestinal symptoms which require further investigation.

“Before recruiting Dr. Meiselman to Sansum Clinic, patients had to travel hours from Santa Barbara to receive this state-of-the-art imaging,” commented Dr. Kurt Ransohoff, President, Sutter Health Greater Central Coast Market. “Dr. Meiselman offers a valuable service to our community, and his hiring is a great example of how our partnership with Sutter Health further elevates the level of care and access we provide.”

Dr. Meiselman is a fellow with the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), serves as its Foundation Treasurer, and has served as a faculty member for its provided medical coursework. He earned his medical degree from Northwestern University Medical School, and is board certified in gastroenterology and internal medicine.

New Ideas for Franceschi Park to be Considered

ACOMMUNITY WORKSHOP TO REIMAGINE WHAT COULD REPLACE THE FRANCESCHI HOUSE at Franceschi Park will be held on Satuday, May 11th, at 10am at the Riviera Ridge School. Franceschi Park, a 17-acre park in Santa Barbara’s Riviera neighborhood that features picnic areas, walking paths, and panoramic views, has the house boarded up and awaiting an uncertain fate.

The old redwood craftsman-style home on the property was purchased by social reformer and philanthropist Alden Freeman, who made extensive changes to the house and property to transform it into a venue for public and civic events. In 1931, Freeman gifted the property and house to the City for use as a public park to recognize Dr. Franceschi’s horticultural legacy and contributions to Santa Barbara’s development in the early 1900s.

In 2018, the City Council voted unanimously to replace Franceschi House with an open-air structure that would honor the legacy of Dr. Franceschi and Mr. Freeman, incorporate elements of Franceschi House, and provide access to the public. The decision was supported by the Pearl Chase Society, which had previously advocated and attempted to fundraise for the building’s restoration and preservation.

SB Community Members Invited to Town Hall


CENTER, the city of Santa Barbara will hold a town hall to discuss the city’s finances and the status of city services. The City and its elected leaders are committed to supporting essential local services; this includes public safety, streets, affordable housing, parks, libraries, and many other services and infrastructure maintained by the General Fund.

Like many California cities, the increasing cost of maintaining these services continues to exceed projected revenues, and despite ongoing efforts to balance the budget, the City is projected to face a structural budget deficit in the coming years.

This deficit is anticipated to grow to 5-7% of the General Fund within the next 3 years which, if not addressed, will present challenges for the City’s long term fiscal health and ability to maintain many core services. The City’s leadership is currently exploring ways to meet these and other challenges, including the potential for new revenue sources.

One805 Names Mental Wellness Ambassador

RECORDING ARTIST JORDAN ASHER HUFFMAN has been named One805’s Mental Wellness Ambassador for 2024. His hit single, Out Loud, has been selected to be this year’s anthem for One805LIVE! events. Out Loud calls out the stigma of mental health in society, and shines a light on the idea it is to ask for help when you need it.

After relocating to California in 2022 to be closer to family, Peytchinov joined AB design studio soon afterward, emboldened by conversations with the firm’s founders. “Josh and Clay empowered and inspired me to feel like I can contribute something that was missing,” he says.

Huffman will debut his song locally on May 19th at the One805LIVE! event at Sunstone Winery, along with an impressive line-up of rock legends. As Mental Wellness Ambassador, Huffman will work to challenge the stigmas around mental health and encourage mental wellness in Santa Barbara County and beyond. He will speak to the issues regarding mental health and our First Responder community.

Many mental health conditions, including depression, substance use disorder, posttraumatic stress disorder, and even suicidal ideation, are more common among First Responders.

“I am honored, and I am privileged to be this year’s campaign Ambassador to help those who help us,” said Huffman. “ I wrote Out Loud with the intention to lend a voice and a light to those of us who might be in the dark with no view to a way out.”

Patron Saint of Santa Barbara Selected for 100th Fiesta


FIESTA, REINA DEL MAR PARLOR NO. 126 has selected Caroline Wedderburn

to portray Saint Barbara, the city’s patron saint and namesake. Alongside her sisters of the Native Daughters of the Golden West, Wedderburn will carry on the parlor’s mission in the preservation of historic California, state conservation, and charitable works. The NDGW also contributes to veterans welfare and college scholarships.

“It is a tremendous honor to be selected by the Native Daughters of the Golden West, Reina del Mar Parlor 126, to portray our city’s patron saint, Saint Barbara,” Wedderburn said. “I look forward to representing Saint Barbara at the various events, not only as a symbol of tradition and heritage but also as a reminder of the values she embodies — resilience, strength, and faith.

“Being part of the Old Spanish Days Fiesta as Saint Barbara fills me with pride and gratitude. It’s a chance to connect with fellow community members, share stories, and create lasting memories that will be cherished for years to come. I am eager to immerse myself in the festivities, embracing the vibrant colors, lively music, and joyful spirit of the fiesta.”

In Fiesta events such as Fiesta Pequena, the Historical Parade, and Noches de Ronda, Wedderburn will be seen in the traditional white gown and scarlet cape, wearing a golden crown. She will carry the martyr’s palm frond and golden chalice. For less formal affairs Wedderburn will wear a white Spanish-style dress and a mantilla with comb.

A Californian native, Wedderburn holds a BA in Religious Studies from UCSB and has been a member of Reina del Mar Parlor No. 126 for five years, where she has served as recording secretary. She attended Mary Immaculate Queen School and then went to Lemoore High School. Wedderburn is currently employed as an Admissions Engagement Specialist at Fielding Graduate University, a non profit graduate university dedicated to educating leaders, scholars, and practitioners. In 2018 Wedderburn was presented a Certificate of Appreciation from the Education Committee of the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation, where she has dedicated herself to their programs.

“I am also committed to honoring the rich history of the Chumash people, the original inhabitants of this land. Their enduring legacy and profound connection to this region are integral to the fabric of Santa Barbara’s identity. As we celebrate fiesta, it is essential to recognize and respect the contributions of the Chumash people and their ongoing presence in our community.”

A member of Baile de California, she danced at Fiesta events in 2018 and 2019, and says, “It was a memorable experience that I will never forget. Not only did I have the pleasure of dancing, it was a wonderful opportunity to share historical California dances with the community and build friendships with the other dancers.”

Saint Barabra is considered the patron saint of artillerymen, miners, architects, and firefighters. The Santa Barbara Channel was named in her honor, as well as the Mission Santa Barbara in the late 1700s.

Structure Fires

THURSDAY, MAY 2ND: Wednesday night at 6:30pm Carpinteria-Summerland Fire responded to a structure fire at 1008 Cindy Lane in Carpinteria. Firefighters first on-scene reported smoke showing from a large, singlestory commercial building. All occupants of the building evacuated safely, and no injuries were reported. Firefighters called for a hazmat response due to potentially hazardous chemicals on site. Within 45 minutes, firefighters fully knocked down the fire and mitigated the hazmat concern. Carpinteria-Summerland Fire was assisted by Montecito Fire, Santa Barbara City Fire, Ventura County Fire, AMR, and the Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Office. Firefighters stayed on scene completing mop-up and decontamination work. The cause is under investigation. (Info: Carpinteria-Summerland fire)

Under the artistic direction of Dr. Isabel Bayrakdarian (UCSB), the Opera Gala gala will feature beloved arias and ensembles performed by talented young opera stars. From the romantic allure of the opera stage to captivating dance performances choreographed by Christina McCarthy (UCSB), a contemporary multimedia piece by João Pedro Oliviera (UCSB), all accompanied by a live orchestra from Ventura College Performing Arts directed by Brent Wilson (UCSB, VCPA), every aspect of this gala is

“We are thrilled to extend the Opera Gala to various venues, allowing access to diverse audiences, fostering collaboration among our talented students, faculty, guest performers, and creative teams, enhancing our community outreach, and strengthening relationships within our community to foster engagement with our supporters and to attract and recruit new talent to UCSB,” said Dr.

The Opera Gala “tour” will take place on three consecutive evenings, offering audiences multiple opportunities to experience the grand spectacle: May 15th | 4pm, Venue: Casa Dorinda (abridged performance); May 16th | 7:30pm, Venue: Helen Yunker Auditorium, Ventura College of Performing Arts; May 17th | 7:30pm Venue: Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall, UC Santa Barbara.

Spring at the Waterfront

SPRING HAS DEFINITELY SPRUNG ALONG CABRILLO BOULEVARD judging by the onslaught of last weekend’s crowds. A beloved Sunday tradition, the Santa Barbara Arts and Crafts Show is one of the major attractions along the waterfront and an opportunity to enjoy the artistic spirit of Santa Barbara.

Exclusively for local artists and craftspeople showcasing and selling their creations, the Arts and Crafts Show displays an array of work, including paintings, sculptures, ceramics, jewelry, photography, and more. Visitors can stroll along the waterfront, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and take home work purchased directly from the artists themselves. It’s such a wonderful opportunity to highlight local talent –and the perfect opportunity for me!

After a short stroll (and lots of stops!) I found myself standing in front of a display of easels with painted images of landscapes in and around the Santa Barbara area. The specific painting that attracted me was a view from the hills overlooking the city with an expanse of blue water between the shoreline and the Channel Islands.“The actual image for this painting was taken with my camera,” explained John Grandfield, as he approached from his seat beneath an umbrella. “When I’m home I go through my pictures and ‘dial in’ an image allowing me to choose what portion to recreate on a canvas.” Grandfield shared that working in the studio was where he felt most comfortable, not all of his paintings came from photographs. “Some of my work comes from memory, often from my childhood growing up here in the Santa Barbara area.”

When Grandfield was five years old his parents moved from Massachusetts to the West Coast with their son and his two older sisters. They settled in Montecito where he attended local schools: Cold Spring School and Santa Barbara Junior and Senior High. As a child he loved to paint and draw–something that came naturally to him. Once real life began, he worked in carpentry during his 20’s and early 30’s, and art was relegated to occasionally on weekends.

“During my years on the job, my wife introduced me to meditation,” Grandfield recalled, “and I started to practice meditating on a regular basis.” He credits his meditation practice to awakening his creative side, opening the door to a serious interest in pursuing art. “It was then that I started to develop my craft as an artist, keeping at it until I felt I was ready. When a painting of mine was chosen to be exhibited at the Faulkner Gallery–and was sold–I decided to pursue art as a full time occupation … plus the Art Walk since 1989!”

In addition to his paintings, Grandfield also displays framed photographs. “As you can see I love texture, the textures of the paint highlight an image. I’ve created texture in my photographs and in the frames I’ve constructed for all of my artwork through the use of various mediums.” The texture in his work is one of the things that attracted me to the art – and what seemed to bind it together with a flow that is the artist’s personal signature. These landmark images can be viewed every Sunday at the Art Walk and online on Grandfield’s website at www.grandfieldart.com

AWC-SB Honors Four Leaders in Education at Women of Achievement Awards Luncheon

FOUR OUTSTANDING LEADERS IN EDUCATION were honored at the Association for Women in Communications – Santa Barbara’s 16th Women of Achievement Awards luncheon on Wednesday, May 1st. All four honorees, Katya Armistead, Assistant Vice Chancellor and Dean of Student Life at UCSB; Yolanda Medina-Garcia, retired Director of Starr King Parent-Child Workshop and SBCC educator; Susan Salcido, Santa Barbara County Superintendent of Schools; and Wendy SimsMoten, Executive Director of First 5 Santa Barbara County, were present at the event which was presented by Women Connect4Good.

More than 150 guests, including AWC-SB members, public officials, and sponsors, filled the historic Cabrillo Pavilion to celebrate the honorees and their work that embodies this year’s theme, Lessons in Leadership: Connecting & Communicating as Education Evolves. Emcee Catherine Remak led the discussion, illuminating the communication skills that all of the honorees bring to their work on a daily basis.

“Celebrating our educational champions highlights the pivotal role of communication in their leadership journey,” said Hilary Lyn, AWC-SB Board President. “The impact of their work underscores the importance of effective dialogue in driving positive change and shaping future generations.”

The four honorees shared the joys and challenges in their work including insights into a range of topics, such as verbal and nonverbal personal communications, transparency, navigating social media, and using new technologies for messaging students, parents, and community members.

“Communication is key,” said Wendy Sims-Moten. “And learning and listening are evergreen.” All of the honorees highlighted the importance of being true to oneself, respectful, and “graciously honest.” They also said a few times that children should be encouraged to be creative, bold, social, and to go outdoors.

Yolanda Medina-Garcia, who has worked with parents and young children for decades, mentioned the role of nonverbal communication and the importance of being real. “Children know if you’re being sincere.”

Toward the end of the discussion Catherine asked the honorees to give the younger generation recommendations for effective communication. Susan Salcido said, “I encourage young people to remain curious, and to take time to do research before coming up with quick answers and sound bites.” The other honorees expressed their hopes that adults

will model civic engagement, and that those starting out will be honest, have positive dialogue, and become lifelong learners.

As individuals and collectively, this year’s honorees capture the essence of leadership recognized by theAWC-SB Women of Achievement event, which recognizes exemplary women communicators, providing inspiring role models for women pursuing careers in journalism, public speaking, writing, public relations, filmmaking, photography, and related disciplines.

The 2024 Women of Achievement Luncheon was supported by the Santa Barbara Independent, Fielding Graduate University, Natalie Orfalea Foundation, Montecito Bank & Trust, La Boheme Dance & Productions, Santa Barbara Foundation, SBCC Foundation, Ken & Jo Saxon, Parent Square, Santa Barbara County Supervisor Das Williams, and KCSB. www.awcsb.org

Breakdancing and Passinho Find Synergy in EAD’s Odeon




TO UCSB ARTS & LECTURES with her ground-breaking Odeon, on Wednesday, May 15th at 8pm in UCSB Cambell Hall. Often a high energy blur of athleticism, virtuosity, and showcasing (she is a b-girl, after all) Ephrat Asherie Dance (EAD) exudes a raw energy and expressive power, casting street dance and the diaspora it pulls from within the disciplined confines of contemporary dance choreography.

A Bessie winner as well as a Jacob’s Pillow recipient, Asherie’s work tends to breath and feel like essential New York. In Odeon, however, she departs familiar soil for Brazil, and finds a kindred spirit in passinho, a Brazilian answer to breakdancing. This comes as no surprise, considering EAD’s almost anthropological interest in the roots of human movement.

the ideas we are most excited about and sometimes (like all siblings) we don’t agree...on tempos for example. But we always find our way, and it’s better together.”

whacking, vogue, Latin hustle, Brazilian samba, house music, and West African influences. What could be a lot of too much, under the threat of chaos, however, is soundly held within Ephrat’s extensive discipline in ballet and modern dance. The energy and experimentation in Odeon doesn’t stray too far, and sticks with breakdancing’s ethos to keep it ‘in the pocket.’

“Breaking asks a lot of you as a person in terms of your commitment to an art form that requires mountains of discipline and tenacity,” Asherie added. “Those values are integral to my work as a choreographer and director.”

Besides her pedigree as a NYCbased director, choreographer, and performer, Ephrat Asherie is a 2016 Bessie Award Winner for Innovative Achievement in Dance. Over the years she has received numerous awards in support of her work including Dance Magazine’s Inaugural Harkness Promise Award and two National Dance Project Awards. The

Also a family affair, Odeon is the second collaboration between Ephrat and her brother Ehud, a jazz musician in his own right who shares her interest in fusing African and Latin movement and sound into something new, a rousing synchronicity of dance and music.

“We have a shorthand in the way we communicate, a directness that is super helpful in the creative process,” Asherie shared. “Of course we can also be stubborn about

What Should Fed Do?—Part II


was even more surprising than Fed Chairman Powell’s dovish remarks after the Fed’s May FOMC meeting, as if Powell might have known that April’s unemployment report would be weaker.

It was, with the unemployment rate rising to 3.9 percent from 3.7 percent and just 175,000 nonfarm payrolls jobs added, vs. last month’s 315,000 jobs added after slight revisions.

"I think it is unlikely that the next rate move would be a hike,” said Powell at the time. “The Committee judges that the risks to achieving its employment and inflation goals have moved toward better balance over the past year.”

Revisions to previous months took the March gain to 315,000, or 12,000 from the initial estimate, and February to 236,000, a decline of 34,000.

Powell’s remarks and the weaker jobs report are causing some economists to predict the Fed could once again begin to cut interest rates in June or July, with at least one more rate cut later this year.

Economic VOICE

And the U.S. economy is moving towards the Fed’s desired goal of slightly higher unemployment and slower wage growth, which economists are saying is the ‘goldilocks’ condition similar to what it was in the last decade—not too hot (inflation) nor too cold (employment).

Average hourly earnings rose just 0.2 percent from the previous month and 3.9 percent from a year ago, both below consensus estimates and an encouraging sign of lower inflation.

The jobless rate tied for the highest level since January 2022. A more encompassing rate that includes discouraged workers and those holding part-time jobs for economic reasons also edged up, to 7.4 percent, its highest level since November 2021.

Health care led job creation, with a 56,000 increase. Other sectors showing significant rises included social assistance (31,000), transportation and warehousing (22,000), and retail (20,000). Construction added 9,000 positions while government, which had shown good gains in recent months, was up just 8,000 after averaging 55,000 over the previous 12 months.

means investors will take time to register what Powell and the Fed Governors are now hinting.

a recession is looming, has risen from its most recent low of 3.7 percent in January 2024 to 3.9 percent in April.

Another sign of weakening inflation was the just released ISM service sector index that measures non-manufacturing jobs in areas such as healthcare, construction, and transportation. The Institute for Supply Management said on Tuesday that its service-sector PMI dropped sharply to 49.4 percent in April from 51.4 percent in the prior month.

“In April, the Services PMI® registered 49.4 percent, 2 percentage points lower than March’s reading of 51.4 percent,” said Anthony Nieves, Chair of the Institute for Supply Management. ‘The composite index indicated contraction in April after 15 consecutive months of growth since a reading of 49 percent in December 2022, the first contraction since May 2020 (45.4 percent). The Business Activity Index registered 50.9 percent in April, which is 6.5 percentage points lower than the 57.4 percent recorded in March.

The service sector has been powering most economic growth since the end of the COVID pandemic, so it will also affect the Fed’s decision on when to begin to lower interest rates.

This is big news in an economy still at full employment, as I have said. The herd behavior (follow the leader mentality) typical of market movements

Economist Claudia Sahm, who I’ve mentioned before, is looking more like a truth-teller than ever. Her “Sahm rule” that if the unemployment rate rises +0.5 percent over the last three-month average,

So who is right? We will now see if the more hawkish Fed Governors, that had been hinting there may be no rate reductions this year, will begin to change their tune in upcoming speeches.

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of Santa Barbara will conduct a Public Hearing on Tuesday, May 21, 2024, during the afternoon session of the meeting which begins at 2:00 p.m. in the Council Chamber, City Hall, 735 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara, for the consideration of the renewal of the Wildland Fire Suppression Assessment District and the levying and collection of assessments to fund the cost of wildland fire suppression services within the District for Fiscal Year 2024-25.

On May 7, 2024, the City Council adopted Resolution of Intention No. 24-045 declaring its intention to hold this hearing (hereinafter referred to as the “Assessment Hearing”) and to consider renewal of the Wildland Fire Suppression Assessment District. All interested or affected property owners will be afforded the opportunity to be heard by the City Council at the Assessment Hearing. Written comments are also welcome up to the time of the hearing and should be addressed to the City Council via the City Clerk’s Office, P.O. Box 1990, Santa Barbara, CA 931021990, or by sending them electronically to Clerk@SantaBarbaraCA.gov.

The total cost of the Wildland Fire Suppression Assessment District is estimated to be $349,589 for Fiscal Year 2025. This cost results in a proposed assessment rate of $99.70 per single-family equivalent benefit unit in the Foothill Zone and $123.63 in the Extreme Foothill Zone for Fiscal Year (FY) 2025. Parcels located within the assessment area are assessed based upon their receipt of special benefits from the services over and above general benefits conferred on real property or to the public at large. The Assessments include a provision for an annual increase equal to the change in the Los Angeles Area Consumer Price Index (CPI), not to exceed 4% per year without a further vote or balloting process. The change in the CPI for 2024-2025 was 3.47% and with the carryover of 0.53% from 2023-2024 it will bring the total CPI increase to 4% for FY2025, and the rates have been adjusted, accordingly.

An updated Engineer’s Report for the Wildland Fire Suppression Assessment District has been prepared and was preliminarily approved by the City Council on May 7, 2024. The Council will consider final approval of the report during the Assessment Hearing. The updated Engineer’s Report is available for review by contacting rdiguilio@santabarbaraca.gov or cbraden@santabarbaraca.gov.

If you challenge the Council’s action on the appeal of the City Council’s decision in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this notice, or in written correspondence delivered to the City at, or prior to, the public hearing.

Dazzling support for healthcare and reporductive rights

FIVE HUNDRED PEOPLE CAME OUT TO CELEBRATE AND SUPPORT REPRODUCTIVE HEALTHCARE AND FREEDOM; four hundred for the fabulous dinner and an additional hundred for the After Hours dance party with DJ Ian Soleimani, celebrating PPCCC’s 60th birthday and 50 years of the Mary Jane McCord Planned Parenthood Book Sale. The anniversary event raised $550,000 for the region’s six clinics.

The Hilton Beachside Resort’s rotunda sparkled with stylish supporters. VOICE spoke to some. “My husband and I have two children, and we know how much responsibility is involved in parenting,” explained PPCCC board member and event sponsor Leslie Sweem Bhutani, a supporter for over thirty years. “Family planning is essential for everyone—for the parents and the children. Planned Parenthood provides reproductive health care to everyone who needs it, with or without insurance or the ability to pay. Society is better off for its existence.”

“It’s essential to preserve and protect fundamental reproductive rights and the rights of women’s control over their bodies,” said Merryl Zegar, whose family foundation also sponsored the event.

Event sponsor Carrie Towbes shared, “I’ve been a Planned Parenthood patient, volunteer, and now a board member, and I couldn’t be more proud of the essential services they provide to our community. PPCCC serves 30,000 people annually, providing birth control, cancer screening, treatment for sexually transmitted infections, and evidence-based sexual health education.”

National Planned Parenthood Federation President Alexis Magill Johnson made a video

appearance to congratulate the work of the Santa Barbara organization, and to personally thank the main event sponsors: Leslie Sweem Bhutani and Ashish Bhutani, Rachel Kaganoff, Kristen Klingbeil-Weis and Karl Weis, and Beatrice Teodoro Oshika, PhD.

Board chair John Romo thanked the team of 160 “Planned Parenthood Heroes,” working for the clinics in San Luis Obispo, Santa Maria, Santa Barbara, Ventura, Oxnard, and Thousand Oaks.

Some of the almost two hundred volunteers who make the book sale run were present to receive an ovation.

The annual sale doesn’t only raise funds for the clinics, but “they’re also promoting literacy,” said PPCCC CEO Jenna Tosh. “The sale has fully stocked the library at the Santa Barbara County Jail with surplus books. The last day of the sale provides free books to teachers and nonprofit professionals.”

Tosh spoke passionately about the organization’s sixty year journey, from humble beginnings as “a small group of mostly volunteers who were passionate about distributing birth control and information.”

“Thanks to 5-year Teen Pregnancy Prevention Grant from the Federal Government,” she recounted, “PPCCC added dedicated educators and critical new programs to shore up our young people with the information they need to live healthy lives,” including mental and behavioral health programs, a postpartum home visitation program, and healthcare for trans people.

“We continue to expand our gender affirming hormone therapy program which serves over 600 patients each year,” Tosh added.

“We will remember this year as the year when the cruelty of abortion bans were crystallized in public consciousness with heartbreaking stories,” Tosh noted, remembering people like Kate Cox in Texas, or Brittany Watts in Ohio. “She was told by her doctor that her fetus was nonviable, but because of the state’s abortion laws she experienced delays and denials of care. Brittany, who is Black, was then charged with a felony for how she handled her miscarriage.”

“We refuse to cede our hope and our determination to judges and politicians who wish us harm. If anything, this environment has only made us bolder, and more focused. That’s why Planned Parenthood California Central Coast continues to make critical investments to expand healthcare access and health equity,” Tosh concluded, to a standing ovation.

Santa Barbara Historical Museum

A ray of SUNSHINE for the Arts

Summer Solstice Parade is about to hit the half-century mark & it seems Santa Barbarians cannot wait to celebrate.

and to The Brassers at the entrance, each serenading two giant inflatable sculptures by Hungarian artist-in-residence Pali Mano, who admitted the old dragon needed some major restoration, including teeth whitening, around 600 people gathered at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum last Thursday, for 1st Thursday and a new exhibition Here Comes The Sun: Celebrating 50 Years of Santa Barbara Summer Solstice

Inside the galleries, the Elevated Dreams Aerial dancers did impossible acrobatic maneuvers, surrounded by every single poster from the celebration’s 50-year history, each drawn from the museum’s collection

Overall, a total of 240 images of Solstice through the years were projected up and down one of the halls, most of them by Nell Campbell, who has photographed many political marches, but also the Solstice Parade, almost from the

first year. She remembers seeing the first parade, as Michael Gonzales and his friends of the Mime Caravan went up Street on a wheeled bed to celebrate Michael’s birthday back in 1976. “I thought they were Hare Krishnas, because they were big at the time,” remembered Nell, who went through thousands of slides and negatives to present 156 from 13 of the first 20 years. “At the beginning it was a renegade organization. The parade is now about music and dance. It used to be about satirical art, besides music and dance. I’d like for it to come back and play a bigger part.”

This writer has to admit that the Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration holds a special place in my heart, since my wife and I had our first date at its workshop. She was a rainforest fairy. I was a giant macaw.

Mark Sargeant, one of the early organizers and one of the voice recordings that are part of the exhibition agrees: “In those days, floats were very interactive with the audience. That was the point of Solstice, to bring art in from the community and share it with the spectators, the audience. And so there was a lot of interaction with the people watching.”

The engine behind those Legacy recordings is Penny Little, Executive Director of the Solstice organization. “This well-curated exhibition is a testament to the importance of what Solstice brings to Santa Barbara, a celebration of art, life, and community,” she told VOICE. “The importance of the arts and creativity cannot be overstated, especially in these troubled times.”

Thanks to a grant from the Towbes Foundation for the Performing Arts, the Summer Solstice Celebration will be able to offer new performance art ensembles financial assistance. “This generous grant will help with the successful transfer of skills to new artists, ensuring the continuity of the Solstice Celebration as a uniquely creative and joyous event for our community,” said Justin Gunn, President, Solstice Board of Directors. “Being able to pay artists with the skills, the ability to mentor and bring the community together is essential to build, rather than lose what it brings to the community.”

Learn more about the celebration’s return to its roots at the May 10th Birthday Bash, 5 to

9pm, at the 631 Garden St. workshop, where the four winners for the Towbes grant will be announced.

There’s still time to join the two-month workshop, where you can get assistance from one of the many artistsin-residence, or you may even fall in love.

Here Comes The Sun runs through June 27th at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum.

UCSB Department of Art MFA Thesis Exhibition to Open

ABOUT TO STEP OUT INTO THE REALM OF THE ART WORLD with soon to be bestowed degrees, eight UCSB Masters of Fine Arts students will be featured in Incadescent, their MFA Thesis exhibition at UCSB Art, Design & Architecture Museum.

Opening with a reception on Friday, May 17th from 5:30 to 7:30pm and running through June 9th, Incandescent, asks, “despite the relentless cycle of global conflicts, colonization, erasure, and human rights violations... who are we making art for, why does art matter when unconscionable suffering occurs, and how can we challenge and dismantle hegemonic and oppressive systems through the act of making?”

The students acknowledge that “though art alone cannot fully resolve these issues, it possesses the power to ignite hearts, spark discourse, and amplify visibility and compassion,” according to a release.

“Drawing from Michel Serres’ notion of incandescence, art emphasizes the interconnectedness of humans and nature, underscoring a shared, unfolding history. The act of making can be a means of reclaiming and honoring ancestry, culture, and identity. Across divergent practices ranging from sculpture to painting and performance, a luminous resistance emerges,” they continue.

A diverse cohort of artists with heritage from Mexico, Nigeria, Iran, the Philippines, and beyond, the student group who entered the MFA program together “have found cohesion, commonality, and unity regardless of our disparate backgrounds.” They relate, “As we create, we grapple with relentless exploitation, genocide, and struggles, like those unfolding across Palestine, Sudan, Congo, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. We continue to resist, protest, rally, and to cry out. We seek to understand how histories are lost, diasporas form, and how we empathetically mourn. From within us, this incandescent glow generates our art making, healing, and resistance.”

Panteha Abareshi’s work situates itself in the crook of discomfort, yet greets the audience with technicolor- inviting an examination of the sick//disabled subjectivity, and dissecting the manner in which fetishization festers within dynamics of imbalanced power.
