EEKING TO PRESERVE 101 ACRES OF THE SAN MARCOS FOOTHILLS, a campaign to purchase the West Mesa area has entered its final days of fundraising headed for a June 1st deadline. The Foothills Forever effort hopes to combine this additional acreage with the 200 acres already making up the San Marcos Foothill Preserve.

As the deadline approaches, many are pitching in to help. A Virtual Benefit Concert will be held on May 27th. The concert will feature music by Glen Phillips, Zach Gill of ALO, Bruce Goldish, and Rich Mahan. The free concert will be available on You Tube from 6pm to 7pm, at http://bit.ly/foothillsforever. “A heartfelt thank you to the Allemall Foundation, that joined us as a conservation partner last month, to Judy & Jack Stapelmann who matched our first anonymous donor with a $1 million gift, and to the more than 4,300 individuals who have donated amounts large and small,” expressed Marianne Para, a member of the executive committee and campaign leadership team. Campaign volunteers are also providing docent-led tours from 10 to 11:30am every Saturday and Sunday through the month of May. Tours may also be scheduled through www.FoothillsForever.org. “Our task as we navigate this last and largest fundraising goal to buy and protect the San Marcos Foothills West Mesa is to remember that every one of us can benefit from this land as public open space, and every donation large and small helps us achieve that goal,” Parra added. To be successful in purchasing the property, the Foothills Forever Fund, a fiscal sponsorship fund of the Santa Barbara Foundation, must raise just over $6 million more by June 1st to cover the purchase price, repay the short-term loan, and cover the essential campaign and closing costs to complete the escrow and obtain control of the property. After June 1st, they will develop the longterm management plan for the property and create an endowment for the maintenance and restoration of the property. Tax deductible contributions can be made by check, payable to “Santa Barbara Foundation.” Include “Foothills Forever Fund” in the memo line and sent to: Santa Barbara Foundation, 1111 Chapala St, Ste. 200, Santa Barbara, CA 93101. For more information email: info@foothillsforever.org

Carbajal Announces Offshore Wind Development Agreement

O

By Mark M. Whitehurst / VOICE

NE OF THE MOST PROMISING CLEAN ENERGY PROPOSALS IN A GENERATION has taken a large leap forward with the White House, Department of the Interior, Califronia, and Congress acting in agreement to construct a Wind Farm on the Central Coast. One of the nations largest at 399 square miles, the agreement details the size and scope for the development off the coast of Morro Bay, according to Salud Carbajal, U.S. Representative for California’s 24th District, who is co-chair of the Congressional Offshore Wind Caucus. Carbajal joined the White House in making the announcement. “After years of negotiations between federal, state, and local partners, I am thrilled to announce we have an agreement on the size and location of an offshore wind project that serves our environmental, energy, and national security interests. Offshore wind holds incredible promise as a means to tackle climate change while also creating economic opportunity, and the Central Coast is uniquely poised to reap the benefits,” said Rep. Carbajal. “This potential project will help secure the Central Coast’s dominance as a renewable energy powerhouse, which will attract new businesses and good paying, future-oriented jobs in a burgeoning sector of the economy. The future is in renewable energy, and the Central Coast is leading the way.” The agreement identifies an area of development approximately 17 to 40 miles offshore of northern San Luis Obispo County and is the product of negotiations conducted by Rep. Carbajal’s Offshore Wind Working Group. The Working Group was created in August 2019 to coordinate between federal, state, and local partners and is composed of representatives from the offices of Rep. Carbajal and Rep. Leon Panetta (D-Carmel Valley), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Bureau of Ocean Energy Management, Department of Defense, Department of the Navy, and California Energy Commission. “I believe that a clean energy future is within our grasp in the United States, but it will take all of us and the best-available science to make it happen. Today’s announcement reflects months of active engagement and dedication between partners who are committed to advancing a clean energy future,” said Secretary of the Interior Deb Haaland. “The offshore wind industry has the potential to create tens of thousands of good-paying union jobs across the nation, while combating the negative effects of climate change. Interior is proud to be part of an all-of-government approach toward the Biden-Harris administration’s ambitious renewable energy goals.” Offshore wind is one component of a multi-pronged strategy to transform the Central Coast

into a renewable energy hub. The Central Coast is already home to the California Valley Solar Ranch and Morro Bay could soon host the largest battery plant in the world. With the addition of an offshore wind project, the Central Coast is positioned to lead the country in renewable energy construction and output. Negotiations had previously stalled amid hesitation from the Navy, until Rep. Carbajal offered an amendment to the FY2021 National Defense Authorization Act in order to move the development forward off of Morro Bay and get negotiations back on track. Following the amendment’s passage, Carbajal secured a written commitment from the Navy indicating a willingness to collaborate with the Working Group to identify an area for development that would meet energy production goals. The next phase of the process involves an environmental impact review and public comment period. “We applaud the Congressman’s leadership in brokering this opportunity to bring new forms of renewable energy and local jobs to the Central Coast region, cementing our role as a renewable energy innovation economy and pioneers of offshore wind on the west coast,” said Andrew Hackleman, Chief Operating Officer of REACH. “By bringing a minimum of 3GW of new energy development off the Central Coast, we have the potential to realize thousands of new jobs and multimillions in economic impact to our region by supplying the infrastructure and workforce to advance this burgeoning new industry all while helping the state and federal government meet their ambitious renewable energy goals.” “I remain committed to working with the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management and the Department of the Interior to make sure the voices of local fishermen and all Central Coast residents are heard as this process moves forward,” said Rep. Carbajal. This transition toward renewable energy is vitally important as the Central Coast prepares for the job and energy losses that will follow the Diablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant’s impending closure. Last year, Rep. Carbajal reintroduced the Energy Opportunity Zones Act which utilizes tax credits to encourage business growth and job creation in the renewable energy sector to offset those losses. Rep. Salud Carbajal is the founder of the Offshore Wind Working Group and serves as the CoChair of the Congressional Offshore Wind Caucus, a bipartisan coalition of lawmakers dedicated to strengthening America’s clean energy leadership. He sits on the House Armed Services Committee, Agriculture Committee, and Transportation and Infrastructure Committee, where he serves as the Chair of the Subcommittee on Coast Guard and Maritime Transportation. Rep. Carbajal’s district encompasses Santa Barbara, San Luis Obispo, and part of Ventura County.

Remembering Hal Conklin, 1945-2021

H

By Jerry Roberts / Newsmakers / www.newsmakerswithjr.com

“I have re-engaged in a lot of conversations in the community about where the community could go, and I’ve been asked to head up a lot of conversations about where the community could go,” he told Newsmakers this week. “And in some respects it’s like being the mayor without being the mayor,” he added with a smile. Today, we’re re-publishing that interview, both to honor one of Santa Barbara’s most caring, involved, compassionate, and distinguished citizens, whose personal values matched his public persona and pronouncements, and to remember his enduring spirit and zest for life. As he said back in February, “I have nothing but gratitude at this point.”

AL CONKLIN WAS A GREAT MAN – a gifted political leader, passionate environmentalist, dedicated champion of the arts, economic visionary, and true community hero. His love for Santa Barbara and concern for its future were constant and authentic, and the lasting influence of the former Mayor and longtime City Council member may be found throughout the city, from Stearns Wharf to Paseo Nuevo and “We love Hal because the Arts District to the Granada Theatre, not to mention Common he was a seeker. His Table community dinners on State inquisitive, hopeful, Street and beyond. “We love Hal because he was a and open mind and seeker,” is how the Capps family, with whom he worked on many heart led him to Rest In Peace, Hal. campaigns and projects, described JR foster connections, him. “His inquisitive, hopeful, and Watch Newsmakers interview with Hal Conklin via YouTube open mind and heart led him to at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6v7cQqdi2SU build community, Hal Conklin foster connections, build community, and be guided by compassion.” and be guided by “Our hearts are heavy with the passing compassion. of our long-time family friend...yet we are buoyed by the inspiration of such a life lived – The Capps family so fully, graciously, and spiritually grounded,” they said. A few months ago, Newsmakers was privileged and delighted to have the opportunity for an extended conversation with Hal, his first full-length interview since he had fallen ill last summer, and one of the final in-depth published records of Jerry Roberts is a California journalist who writes, blogs and hosts a TV talk show about politics, policy and media.

Letters to the Editor

Please Save the San Marcos Foothills!

Hello,

As I write, there is barely over a week left to raise $8 million dollars to pay a developer to purchase 104 acres on the San Marcos Preserve. Bulldozers are literally standing by to start construction on eight luxury homes. I might sound a wee bit ambitious, but considering it was $20 million six ago weeks I’m holding on to hope.

I’m writing to you for support to save the San Marcos Foothill Preserve. This public environmental space is in danger of being permanently marred. All of the coyotes, rabbits, deer, birds, trees, and natural growth that inhabit this land are in danger. Public parks and outdoor recreational areas are essential. There are a myriad of studies showing how important being out in nature is for both mental and physical health. In times like these especially, we need to preserve this sacred land permanently for future generations to enjoy. I visit the preserve often with my girlfriend to go for walks and take in the beauty of the natural land, as many in our community do. We need to rally together to save this sacred Chumash land, not just for our community, but for everyone. Santa Barbara is a massive tourist destination. This cause is for everyone. As a young adult with next to no income I feel so strongly about this cause I donated $500 to preserve it. Please take this opportunity to spread awareness in support of land preservation. It would be greatly appreciated and well received. The deadline to save the San Marcos Foothill Preserve is June 1st. So far, this cause is over half way funded, but the deadline is approaching fast. I know we can meet this goal. Together, we can achieve it. www.foothillsforever.org Thanks, Ian Chidester

I’ve been walking on the Preserve for 15 years. It’s my escape. It’s where I go to ease my mind and find peace and calm. There are other places I can go, but this area is special, so it’s important to me. It’s also important to you…you just might not know it yet. Edward Abbey in Desert Solitaire said “we need the possibility of escape as surely as we need hope”. He also said “Wilderness is not a luxury, but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself.” That’s heady stuff, but I know I’m not the only one who goes outdoors for escape…have you visited a National Park in the summer? But I’m not here to spell doom & gloom…I’m here to encourage you to donate a few million dollars (in small increments if need be). So, where do I begin? First let me ask, do we need eight more luxury homes in Santa Barbara? In the 15 years I mentioned earlier, the Preserve has burned twice. And I don’t mean little brush type fires. We’re in yearround fire season in California, in part because of rising annual temperatures, but also because we have built so deep into lands that were meant to burn. Chaparral and foothill foliage have depended on heat and fire to regenerate for millennia. It’s what keeps them alive. It provided for the original inhabitants…the Chumash…and it provides for us. Eight owners will pay for these new homes and then we will pay for the resources to save them every time a fire threatens. Which, if you live here…you know is often. The wildlife here is also important. Again, maybe not that important, you might think, there is wildlife elsewhere… But at some point, there won’t be an elsewhere. News reports are constant about owners upset over mountain lions and coyotes in their backyards when we are the ones in their backyards. They are running out of room. A project to build a wildlife bridge/corridor over the 101 near Thousand Oaks is underway because so many animals are killed on our freeways. It’s dangerous for us and deadly for them. This is their land too. The circle of life is real and we are also dependent on it for survival. We need all of the pieces of nature to make this thing called life work. And life abounds in the Preserve. Roadrunners, coyotes, mountain lions, deer, black-shouldered kites, chipmunks, raccoons, black tarantulas, pinacate beetles, lizards, beetles, oaks, pepper trees, and so much more. Two creeks cross through, gushing torrents of water after big rains connecting the hills to the ocean. When they are dry, they serve as thoroughfares for all manner of creatures. In Spring, the fields come alive with mustard grass, lupine, and sage. It’s worth visiting if you haven’t already. But do it soon… like next week. Once homes are built here this land is gone forever. To ask for the kind of financial donation that’s needed, one usually has to make a pretty sound economic argument. Wildlife and trees don’t generally equate to dollars…but this plot of land is important for its own sake. This is our children’s inheritance. This is a city that catalyzed the start of Earth Day and has a long history of saving wild properties. I know I’m not the only one who needs to escape once in a while…I’m hoping you will realize the importance of having wild places to go where you can do that. Please donate whatever you can. www.foothillsforever.org. Thank you. Eric Zobel

Hospice of Santa Barbara’s “Coping with COVID-19” Series

Joy (and Hugs) for our Seniors in Care Facilities

B

By Jeanne M. West, Community Engagement Manager, Hospice of Santa Barbara

ACK IN MARCH OF 2020 when awareness of COVID began to surface, I felt it was important to reach out to our colleagues in long term care settings, just to offer moral support and ask what major issues were emerging. As Community Engagement Manager for Hospice of Santa Barbara, that was a very natural extension of my work and I quickly found that administrators and staff were quite pleased with the outreach and relieved to discuss their concerns about what residents and families were experiencing. Like all other care settings here and everywhere, residents at Oak Cottage Assisted Living Community were not permitted to have visitors for most of the past year, except for seeing loved ones via ‘window visits’ or Zoom or Facetime, followed later by “porch” visits. Imagine that your loved one is in a care setting and you are isolated from seeing them, to keep both of you safe and protected from the dreaded COVID-19. Now take that a step further. These residents have memory loss and family worries magnified, causing one daughter to wonder, “Will Mom recognize me when I do get to visit her in person?” Or as yet another daughter tearfully shared, “Will my Mom still be alive by the time the COVID restrictions are lifted?” These comments surfaced during the Family Dialogue Zoom meetings held monthly (starting June 2020) with Oak Cottage family members who gathered virtually to share their worries and feelings. As group facilitator, my role was to provide a safe environment for each person to tell their story and for me to listen and be supportive as they reached out for hope. Gratitude for the loving and expert care being given to their loved ones was mixed with sadness over not being able to touch or hug or just be present with their family member during this challenging time. It truly was a loss for all concerned. Holiday time came and families continued their virtual visits and became creative in keeping memories alive. Taking or sending photographs or other memorabilia enhanced the feeling of “doing something meaningful that felt good and had meaning.” Fast forward to March 2021 – a time for JOY had finally arrived. Oak Cottage residents had all been vaccinated and County-wide, COVID numbers were on a dramatic decline. Hoorah! Family and friends who had also been vaccinated were now able to visit, wearing mask and social distancing upon entry to the building. Now for the good news - visiting residents at Oak Cottage is now permitted without a mask, when in the apartment with their loved one. I remember being tearful when I read the following notice: “No age restrictions on visits. Hugging, holding hands is welcome (and encouraged).” Then I had to giggle when I read, “dogs are welcome, however they must be on a leash, vaccines need to be up-to-date, they need to be potty trained and please, no fleas.” So now, we have spouses and adult children, grandchildren and dogs and a very happy staff thrilled to be watching their residents come to life in a new way. At the March 31, 2021 Family Dialogue Group Meeting, John said, “I took my wife out twice and it made me so happy. I had a feeling of being in love again.” His out of state daughter, Claudia stated, “it made me so happy to see my Mom with my Dad together and enjoying each other.” The joyful comments continued! Kay told the group that she took her Mom out for lunch and she (Mom) “acted like it was a date.” At first anxious that her Mom’s physical status may have changed, Kay said, “her strength and mobility were really good and I can’t wait to take her out again.” Ann and Beth, both in other states said that her brother from San Diego comes up to Santa Barbara every weekend to visit their Mom. Brother Jim “took Mom up the street to McConnells’s for an ice cream and though Mom had been less verbal during window visits, she laughed with delight, chatted more and just seemed more like her old self and was so happy.” Barb took her husband on the back patio at Oak Cottage and appreciated just having a “normal visit” and enjoying the beautiful outdoors together. When asked how they would describe what JOY felt like, Ann said “I loved hearing my Mom’s laughter again – that has not changed.” Kay’s description of JOY was “it felt normal to take my Mom (who, by the way is 97 years old) out ... we got my Mom and laughter back again.” For Claudia, “my joy is relief knowing that we can see her again. Dad was so happy to be out with her, like normal times.” Beth’s description of JOY, “it was like watching my Mom wake up.” It was heartwarming to hear the stories and to witness the real JOY that these families were experiencing as they were able to see and personally experience togetherness with their loved ones. It was a reminder that we take so much for granted in life, until we no longer have it! May you experience a feeling of JOY as you read this heartwarming story, as we are hopefully, getting closer the final phase of the COVID journey. Smiles and laughter, missed for so long, will not ever be taken for granted again. Though speech may be limited, the smiles and the memories have been brought to life again. This article, written at their urging, is dedicated to all the families at Oak Cottage and all other senior care communities in Santa Barbara and everywhere. Where there is life, there is still laughter and a whole lot of love.

“Lidiando con COVID-19” Serie de Hospice of Santa Barbara

Alegría (y abrazos) para nuestros adultos mayores en centros de atención

E

Por Jeanne M. West, Gerente de participación comunitaria, Hospice of Santa Barbara

N MARZO DE 2020, cuando comenzó a surgir la conciencia de COVID, sentí que era importante acercarnos a nuestros colegas en entornos de atención a largo plazo, solo para ofrecer apoyo moral y preguntar qué problemas principales estaban surgiendo. Como Gerente de Participación Comunitaria para Hospice of Santa Barbara, esa fue una extensión muy natural de mi trabajo y rápidamente descubrí que los administradores y el personal estaban bastante complacidos con el acercamiento y aliviados de discutir sus preocupaciones sobre lo que los residentes y las familias estaban experimentando. Como todos los demás entornos de atención aquí y en todas partes, a los residentes de esta comunidad de vida asistida no se les permitió recibir visitas durante la mayor parte del año pasado, excepto para ver a sus seres queridos a través de “visitas por la ventana” o Zoom o Facetime, seguidas más tarde por visitas en el “patio.” Imagina que tu ser querido está en un centro de cuidados y estas aislado sin poder verlos, para mantenerlos a ambos seguros y protegidos del temible COVID-19. Ahora da un paso más. Estos residentes tienen la pérdida de memoria y las preocupaciones familiares magnificadas, lo que hace que una hija se pregunte: “¿Mamá me reconocerá cuando la visite en persona?” O como otra hija compartió entre lágrimas: “¿Mi mamá seguirá viva para cuando se levanten las restricciones de COVID?” Estos comentarios surgieron durante las reuniones de Zoom de Diálogo Familiar que se llevan a cabo mensualmente (a partir de junio de 2020) con los miembros de la familia de Oak Cottage que se reunieron virtualmente para compartir sus preocupaciones y sentimientos. Como facilitador de grupo, mi función era proporcionar un entorno seguro para que cada persona contara su historia y para que yo escuchara y apoyara mientras buscaban esperanza. La gratitud por el cuidado amoroso y experto que se les brinda a sus seres queridos se mezcló con la tristeza por no poder tocar o abrazar o simplemente estar presente con su familiar durante este momento desafiante. Realmente fue una pérdida para todos los involucrados. Llegó la época de las fiestas y las familias continuaron sus visitas virtuales y se volvieron creativas para mantener vivos los recuerdos. Tomar o enviar fotografías u otros recuerdos realzó la sensación de “hacer algo significativo que se sintió bien y tenía significado”. Avanza rápido hasta marzo de 2021: finalmente había llegado el momento de ALEGRÍA. Todos los residentes de Oak Cottage han sido vacunados y en todo el condado, el número de casos de COVID estaban disminuyendo drásticamente. ¡Hurra! Los familiares y amigos que también han sido vacunados ahora pueden visitar, con cubrebocas y distanciamiento social al entrar al edificio. Ahora, las buenas noticias: los residentes que visitan Oak Cottage ahora se les permite no usar cubrebocas, cuando están en el apartamento con su ser querido. Recuerdo haber llorado cuando leí el siguiente aviso: “No hay restricciones de edad para las visitas. Abrazar, tomarse de la mano es bienvenido (y alentado).” Entonces tuve que reírme cuando leí, “los perros son bienvenidos, sin embargo, deben estar atados, las vacunas deben estar actualizadas, deben estar entrenados para ir al baño y, por favor, no pulgas.” Así que ahora, tenemos cónyuges e hijos adultos, nietos y perros y un personal muy feliz y emocionado de ver a sus residentes cobrar vida de una manera nueva. En la reunión del Grupo de Diálogo Familiar del 31 de marzo de 2021, John dijo: “Salí con mi esposa dos veces y me hizo muy feliz. Tuve la sensación de estar enamorado de nuevo.” Su hija Claudia que vive fuera del estado, dijo, “me hizo muy feliz ver a mi mamá con mi papá juntos y disfrutando el uno del otro”. ¡Los comentarios alegres continuaron! Kay le dijo al grupo que llevó a su mamá a almorzar y que ella (mamá) “actuó como si fuera una cita.” Al principio, preocupada de que el estado físico de su mamá hubiera cambiado, Kay dijo, “su fuerza y movilidad eran realmente buenas y no puedo esperar para sacarla de nuevo”. Ann y Beth, ambas en otros estados dijeron que su hermano de San Diego viene a Santa Bárbara todos los fines de semana para visitar a su mamá. El hermano Jim “llevó a mamá a McConnells para tomar un helado y, aunque mamá había sido menos verbal durante las visitas a la ventana, se rió con placer, charló más y parecía más como antes y estaba muy feliz.” Barb llevó a su esposo al patio trasero de Oak Cottage y apreció tener una “visita normal” y disfrutar juntos del hermoso aire libre. Cuando se les preguntó cómo describirían cómo se sentía la ALEGRÍA, Ann dijo: “Me encantó volver a escuchar la risa de mi mamá, eso no ha cambiado.” La descripción de Kay de la ALEGRÍA fue: “Me sentí normal sacar a mi mamá (que, por cierto, tiene 97 años) ... recuperamos a mi mamá y la risa.” Para Claudia, “mi alegría es un alivio al saber que podemos volver a verla. Papá estaba tan feliz de estar con ella, como en los tiempos normales.” La descripción de Beth de la ALEGRÍA, “fue como ver a mi mamá despertarse.” Fue reconfortante escuchar las historias y presenciar la verdadera ALEGRÍA que estas familias estaban experimentando al poder ver y experimentar personalmente la unión con sus seres queridos. Fue un recordatorio de que damos tantas cosas por sentado en la vida, ¡hasta que ya no las tenemos! Que experimentes una sensación de ALEGRÍA al leer esta conmovedora historia, ya que esperamos que nos acerquemos a la fase final del viaje de COVID. Las sonrisas y las risas, extrañadas durante tanto tiempo, nunca se volverán a dar por sentado. Aunque el habla puede ser limitado, las sonrisas y los recuerdos han vuelto a la vida. Este artículo está dedicado a todas las familias de Oak Cottage y todas las demás comunidades de atención para personas mayores en Santa Bárbara y en todas partes. Donde hay vida, todavía hay risas y mucho amor.

SB Public Library Welcomes Back Community with Increased Building Access

By Daisy Scott / VOICE

OOK-LOVERS, STUDENTS, AND ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS who relish using the Santa Barbara Public Library’s resources will soon be able to browse bookshelves in person again. Beginning June 1st, SBPL will increase access to its library buildings by welcoming patrons up to 25 percent capacity, with each visitor will be limited to a 30-minute visit. This move is SBPL’s latest effort to safely serve the community amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. “SBPL has continued to support the community’s information and educational needs during the pandemic by modifying the way we deliver service,” shared Library Services Manager Molly Wetta. “Our buildings haven’t been opened, but we never truly closed.” SBPL service adjustments have included mailing library cardholders books and offering patrons Sidewalk Service, according to Wetta. Most recently, SBPL opened the Faulkner Gallery and other locations’ meeting rooms for limited browsing and reserved item pick-up. Additionally, SBPL has expanded its digital library resources, hosted virtual and outdoors events, and lent laptops and hotspots to community members in need of internet access. Now, SBPL locations look forward to once again providing more traditional in-person browsing, along with access to computers, Wi-Fi, copiers, and printers. However, indoor programming and meeting room reservations will still not be offered at this time. Shipments of items between Black Gold Library Cooperative member libraries will

also remain unavailable until July 1st. To allow for social distancing, visitors will be admitted on a firstcome, first-serve basis. Accordingly, the Central Library will permit 94 people inside at one time, with the Eastside Library admitting eleven individuals. Given their smaller sizes, the Carpinteria Library will welcome only one household or six people, while the Montecito Library will allow one household or four people. Due to these limitations, SBPL asks community members to limit themselves to one 30-minutes long visit per day, so that all interested individuals may utilize the library’s resources. The Library will also ask patrons to not eat food and wear a face mask during their visit. “The Library will continue to require masks for entry to buildings, even if the State and County public health orders no longer require them for the foreseeable future,” said Wetta. “With less than half of the county’s population currently vaccinated, and young children not able to receive the vaccine, we want to ensure the most vulnerable members of the community are protected.” Beyond welcoming back patrons, SBPL has also invited existing volunteers to resume their duties as of this month. The libraries are also currently hiring library pages and teenagers interested in paid internships. More volunteer opportunities will be made available this summer. All SBPL locations will be closed on May 29th to prepare for their reopening on June 1st.

Community invited to Raise Gun Violence Awareness by Moms Demand Action

E

ACH DAY over 100 people are killed by guns in the United States. To increase awareness of this fact, along with the issue of gun violence nationwide, the Santa Barbara Chapter of Moms Demand Action invites the community members to create their own paper Soul Boxes, which represent the lives injured or lost by gun accidents, violence, or suicide. Boxes can be dropped off with Moms Demand Action volunteers at the Santa Barbara Central Library from 11am-2pm Wednesday, June 2nd. Prior to this drop-off event, Moms Demand Action gathered on May 26th to fold 100 Soul Boxes representing the people who die from gun violence every day. These boxes, along with the ones created by the community, will make up a display at the Central Library this June. Beyond folding Soul Boxes, Moms Demand Action members and other supporters will wear orange on Friday, June 4th to honor individuals lost to gun violence and promote awareness. “Orange is the color that Hadiya Pendelton’s friends wore in her honor after she was shot and killed in 2015 at the age of 15,” explains a statement from the Santa Barbara Moms Demand Action chapter. “After her death, her friends asked people to stand up, speak out, and Wear Orange to raise awareness.”

HarborVOICE MOXI Lures Harbor Visitors up State By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

Photos by Sigrid Toye

PPORTUNITIES FOR DISCOVERY ARE EVERYWHERE and I’m excited to have so much to write about! A quick glace up State Street from the harbor’s Cabrillo Boulevard reveals the glorious architecture of MOXI, the Wolf Museum of Museum of Exploration & Innovation, just a short distance from the ocean. Who could resist that imaginatively designed building with a special entrance just for kids? The Barry Berkus designed structure celebrated its official Opening Day in 2017. Its existence is a testament to the work of a dedicated and determined group of founders supported by countless generous donors, businesses, and foundations from our philanthropically minded Santa Barbara community and beyond, many of whom are honored on the walkway to the entrance of the museum. MOXI certainly has delivered on its original mission statement and vision and much more. Especially impressive are MOXI’s Core Values which reflect a common philosophy: a space for Experimenters who are willing to take risks and embrace failure in a safe, playful, collaborative, and diverse environment. Even during pandemic closures, its mission has continued to motivate the staff to develop projects outside of normal on-site opportunities. Since MOXI’s reopening on April 29th, access is available under County guidelines for optimum safety for both visitors and staff. Opening at 25 percent capacity, it was clear to me that the greatest precautions were being taken within the the 25,000 foot structure, with staff assisting parents and their children at each exhibit. As I wandered about with my cell phone camera, I couldn’t help but admire the creative interior spaces and

May 28, 2021

the colorful accent pieces all designed in support of the mission to ‘ignite learning through interactive experiences in science and creativity’. Each one was a photo-op in its own right, making the entire experience an artistic thing of wonder! On the second floor, I was stunned by the most amazing display, created exclusively by members of the community and their kids, called CurioCity. This was one of the innovative projects developed during the restrictive COVID-19 summer, when the building was shuttered. The museum’s creative staff invited participants to design, engineer, and build a model of a city. The challenge was that it had to be made primarily out of cardboard. In addition to encouraging the creative reuse of cardboard, this project also introduced the science and process of city planning, including the concept of zoning. The ‘city planners’ were encouraged to make structures and features meet a variety of needs for the citizens of CurioCity, including residential buildings, recreational activities/locations, service providers, and utilities which totaled 43 individual creations woven into a complete cardboard community. Director of Marketing and Communications Martha Swanson noted, “Since that was a few months into “lockdown” – we found people were excited for safe human interaction – They were excited to have something to do and somewhere to go in order to drop off their cardboard creations.” How about that for a hands-on innovative educational project? Also noteworthy was one of the museum’s most popular exhibit: Build It. Test It. Race It., where guests build race cares and test them on a large race track located front and center on the second floor. The number of kids waiting for their turn certainly underscored the exhibit’s popularity. It’s a reminder that, in many ways, the museum experience is still the same – the difference being that one has to wait and take turns due to still present safety restrictions. Not a bad thing to learn as well! Photo by MOXI, The Wolf Museum of Exploration + Innovation

EconomicVOICE Some Workers Reluctant to Return to Jobs By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

“IN THE WEEK ENDING MAY 15, the advance figure for seasonally adjusted initial (jobless) claims was 444,000, a decrease of 34,000 from the previous week’s revised level. This is the lowest level for initial claims since March 14, 2020 when it was 256,000,” says the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis. Most of the decline came from a decrease in those getting benefits through pandemicrelated emergency programs. States showing the largest declines included Georgia (-8,216), Kentucky (-7,175), and Texas (-4,828), according to unadjusted data. New Jersey showed the biggest gain, with 4,384. Along with the steady slide in the headline number, the total of those receiving various government benefits tumbled by nearly 900,000 to just shy of 16 million, according to BEA data through May 1st. The high number still receiving benefits has caused some 23 states to back out of the $300 weekly federal bonus checks as soon as June, with Florida being the latest state to announce it is canceling extended federal unemployment benefits. That’ll cut off more than 3.6 million people from getting enhanced benefits related to the pandemic that Congress has authorized to expire in September.. State governors claim that this unemployment coverage discourages workers from taking jobs, citing labor shortages. Some economists and analysts disagree, noting that several factors are preventing people from finding suitable work, including lack of child care and fear of contracting COVID-19. The two million person gap between Job Openings and actual Hires in the government’s latest JOLTS report is growing evidence that there is a red-hot demand for workers after what I call the pandemic recession, even with the high number out of work and still receiving benefits. Why the record number of job openings at the same time so many are still receiving benefits? It will take time for workers to find suitable jobs, while employers need to raise their minimum wages for essential workers in the service sector (that are the lowest paid) to attract them back to work. Service sector employers such as Amazon say they are raising their minimum wage to $15 per hour, while Bank of America is raising the minimum wage from $20 to $25 per hour for its clerical workers. It is perhaps why a record number of small businesses said they could not fill open jobs in April, adding to a growing national controversy over whether extra unemployment benefits are keeping scores of people from re-entering the labor force. Some 44 percent of small businesses reported job openings went unfilled, according to the National Federation of Independent Business. The NFIB is the nation’s largest smallbusiness lobbying group. It is less understandable why the red states are the first to terminate extra aid to their own lowest-paid workers before September, maintaining that it is keeping them from working in jobs that probably pay less than the weekly benefits (aid that is also free $$ to the states). It not such a good idea, because cutting off the additional benefits is exacerbating the

income inequality that has been a major cause of record drug use and suicide rate among high school-educated white males that have lost formerly high-paying jobs in the rust belt. It also tells us that red state governors, (such as Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson in a recent NPR interview), think little of the plight of Arkansas’ own essential workers that fill most of the lower-paying jobs after having weathered one year of pandemic hell. The good news is that workers are now getting to pick and choose what jobs they would prefer. That is just one of the changes we are seeing as the 2020’s economy begins to roar.

O YOU HAVE FOUND THE PERFECT PLACE FOR YOUR BUSINESS and it is time to negotiate the lease. Aside from the basics such as term and rent, what should a tenant (Lessee) be looking at in their commercial lease? There are three main types of commercial leases. Which one the property owner (Lessor) wants to use will determine what your responsibilities are as the Lessee. Who is paying the real estate taxes? Who maintains the air conditioning? Who is responsible for utilities? These are not small expenses, and depending on the lease used, it can make the difference in making your business Run your legal notice successful. There are three main types of commercial in VOICE Magazine leases; triple net (NNN), modified gross (MG) and full Fictitious Business Name service gross (FSG).

A triple net lease (NNN) means that in addition to paying your base rent, you are also responsible for your Brian Johnson, proportionate share of property taxes, insurance, and SBAOR President common area expenses for the property. The charges are not limited to those three items, but they are the big ones and thus why they call it a triple net lease. There is very little that is not passed on to the Lessee by the Lessor and these types of leases are preferred by Lessors and usually used for investment properties. A Full Service Gross (FSG) lease is one where the rent that the Lessee pays is inclusive of everything, including utilities. These leases are the simplest in terms of a Lessee understanding their responsibilities. They pay a single amount and the Lessor covers the costs for everything. Often times, these types of leases will have an expense stop or cap where a Lessee may be responsible if the expenses exceed a certain level. This type of lease is most popular for Lessees for obvious reasons. Modified Gross (MG) leases are a middle ground between NNN leases and full service gross leases. In a modified gross lease, the Lessee is responsible for paying the rent and utilities and, depending on how the lease reads, a portion of the common area expenses. In some leases, the Lessee is responsible for any increases in the expenses after the first year. This type of lease is very flexible in handling expense responsibility and so they can be a good compromise for Lessors and Lessees. These descriptions are not absolutes and often times Lessors and Lessees can negotiate terms that will alter these in order to work in a specific situation. That is why it is important to have an experienced commercial real estate agent working for you in your negotiations. They see dozens of leases every year and will be able to assist you in negotiating the best terms for your agreement.

Poetic VOICE Little Soul

All this means something something absolute whenever I start to explain it I forget words altogether —T’ao Ch’ien (365-427 c.e.)

W

By Richard Jarrette / Special to VOICE

ILLIAM STANLEY MERWIN (1927-2019) encountered again the one poem attributed to Emperor Hadrian in Marguerite Yourcenar’s novel, Memoirs of Hadrian (1951). The book opens with a reproduction of a stone plaque with chiseled Latin words and it seems to be Hadrian’s death poem—

Little soul little stray little drifter now where will you stay all pale and alone after the way you used to make fun of things

To the Soul

Photo by Josh Gaines

Richard Jarrette, Vesuvio Cafe

In many of his poems, reader—and William too I’m sure—are regularly startled by soul’s sudden appearance (the infinitude of feelings, images, and sensations, one might associate with “soul”) as if something beyond words itself chose to appear—and his genius was to somehow, miraculously, manifest a poem about that. You invisible one resounding on your own whatever the others happen to be playing source of a note not there in the score under whatever key unphrased continuo gut stretched between the beginning and the end what would the music be without you since even through the chorus of pure joy the tears hear you and nothing can restrain them

Amor Fati Little soul, you have wandered lost a long time. The woods all dark now, birded and eyed. Then a light, a cabin, a fire, a door standing open. The fairy tales warn you: Do not go in you who would eat will be eaten. You go in. You quicken. You want to have feet. You want to have eyes. You want to have fears. A month ago Jane sent me a note about my book, The Pond (2019), with this comment: “How lovely that we share reflections on Hadrian’s “Little Soul” with your “Little Sparrow.” After I picked myself up off the floor, confused, I went to the poem—

Emperor Hadrian hoped to enter death with eyes open as I’ve seen your brothers do. Maybe we’ll recognize the way and meet at the threshold among those we love for millions of days. I recalled writing the poem in response to finally, after a year of puzzlement (my Latin is primitive and ancient), figuring out that the closing pages of Yourcenar’s novel paraphrase Hadrian’s poem and also the inscription on his tomb, which I paraphrased in my poem. The “Little sparrow” is simply a sparrow hopping around my feet on the porch of my favorite coffee shop hoping for bagel crumbs. And then it suddenly hit me for the first time—my poem was actually the beginnings of The Beatitudes of Ekaterina (2017) my lamentation at the death of my beloved Ekaterina Anna Oxana Galiyeva in 2014 who I called “Vorobyshek”—Little Sparrow—from a story by her Russian countryman Alexander Pushkin. Goodness gracious, “No surprise for the writer, no surprise for the reader,” sayeth Robert Frost. The deeply occupied consciousness that wrote the poem in the year of her death about her death, myself unaware, was the work of soul, my own “sorrow string.” I certainly had not intended to write a “Little Soul” after Hadrian let alone join William and Jane in homages to the poem in some unmapped future. And now they are arriving, a kind of seafarer’s vessel steering itself toward a destiny to which the only righteous response must be—“Yes.” Thus begins transition on behalf of the new work and the necessary landfall for its realization—somewhere near the confluence of Rio Tamega and Rio Douro.

Is anyone there if so are you real either way are you one or several if the latter are you all at once or do you take turns not answering

To the Sorrow String

Prior to the publication of Jane Hirshfield’s Ledger (2020), reviewed in this column, I was startled and delighted to see her own “Little Soul” poems appearing in literary magazines. I thought how wonderful that she had been inspired by our dear friend William’s translation of Hadrian’s gem. Here is the first of her “Little Souls”—

Little sparrow, my breath of soul makes brief flights and hops I too carry weeds in my mouth.

William spent thirty years pondering how one might translate the poem “despite the numerous commentaries about it.” He told me that he finally settled on the most literal choices he could manage which felt “closest to its singular truth.” He addressed soul directly throughout his career –

is your answer the question itself surviving the asking without end whose question is it how does it begin where does it come from how did it ever find out about you over the sound of itself with nothing but its own ignorance to go by

May 28, 2021

Two backlit mallards heading north like crazy not waiting for death little soul you never hole up intimations nonstop quit the job kiss those lips laugh it off don’t wait do you hear death saying fly together it’s late . . . Little soul a person asks what is a person everything that is everything that is not never not answers like walking on a mirror and you down there drifting off wheresoever whenever you feel like it out of the frame out of the question

Richard Jarrette is author of Beso the Donkey (2010), A Hundred Million Years of Nectar Dances (2015), The Beatitudes of Ekaterina (2017), The Pond (2019), Strange Antlers (Fall 2021), and Wheresoever (2022).

ANTA BARBARA LOCALS ESCAPE INTO REALMS OF COLOR AND PAVEMENT during the annual I Madonnari Italian Street Painting Festival. Held at the Santa Barbara Mission every Memorial Day weekend, artists and community members alike gather together to craft and admire a stunning collection of chalk drawings. Now, while pandemic restrictions prevent this traditional in-person celebration, the spirit of I Madonnari will continue online this weekend with its virtual festival May 29th to 31st. “The festival is a wonderful tourist attraction for Santa Barbara,” shared Kathy Koury, Executive Director of the Children’s Creative Project. “It has been a very popular community event, people of all ages come.” The Festival also benefits the Children’s Creative Project, a nonprofit arts education program of the Santa Barbara County Education Office. Holding the mission of providing students with cultural experiences and visual and performing art education, the organization serves over 50,000 students across Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo County schools each year. It has continued this work in the face of the pandemic, offering students various virtual activities. This year’s I Madonnari Festival will showcase the works of 77 artists from across our community, California, the United States, and Mexico. Sponsored by a number of companies and organizations, the artists will create their chalk pastel drawings in their driveways. As they work, they will take photos showing their progress. These photos will then be shared online via the I Madonnari website and social media for festival viewers’ enjoyment. “What’s interesting about the festival at the old mission is you get to see a creative process, the drawings from beginning to completion,” explained Koury. “So I wanted to replicate that somehow with the virtual event.” Artists: Tracy Lee Stum and Sayak Mitra – Sponsored by So Cal IP Law Group A special highlight will be the festival’s featured work, created by artists Sharyn Chan, Ann Hefferman, and Jay Schwartz. Together, they will craft a 40’ by 20’ street painting depicting a part of Mexican painter and historian Miguel Covarrubias’ Map of Mexico. This same team of artists also worked on last year’s 48’ by 12’ street painting of Thomas Hart Benton’s Achelous and Hercules, which is featured on the 2021 I Madonnari poster. The festival will also feature a “Chalk for Kids” element, which invites children to create their own chalk drawings during the festival. They can then share these drawings with Eleven year old Alisson’s 2020 chalk drawing the community by posting them to Instagram with the hashtag #KeepOnChalking. Children interested in participating can receive free chalk between 9am and 1pm on Saturday, May 29th at the Village Properties parking lot on the corner of State and Micheltorena Streets. The Children’s Creative Project has also opened an I Madonnari Brianna Johnson, REALTOR; Renee Grubb, Village online store through its website, where event supporters can Properties Owner; and Dianne Johnson, REALTOR purchase notecards, posters, tote bags, face masks, and more.
