Celebrating Mothers, Nurses, & Caregivers at Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon

E

By Karina Lucero-Aleman, VNA Health

VERY YEAR, NURSES WEEK is May 6th to May 12th (ending on the birthday of Florence Nightingale); and sometime during that week is Mother’s Day. On Nov. 8, 1908, VNA Health was “born” and its mother was Miss Marian Watts, a visiting nurse. The annual Mother’s Day Luncheon is uniquely special for VNA Health as the organization honors mothers, nurses, and caregivers. This year, the COVID-19 Pandemic presented a unique challenge, and thanks to the dedication and innovation of sponsors, performers, partners, and supporters, the 19th Annual Mother’s Day Luncheon transformed into a virtual celebration and the community is invited to join at vna.health/luncheon. Usually at the luncheon, sponsors host seats for VNA Health clinicians and caregivers, allowing for the opportunity for guests to meet nurses, physicians, therapists, social workers, chaplains, and aides. In recognition of Nurses Week, we asked the VNA Health President & CEO and the hospice leadership team to share why they chose to be a nurse. I chose to be a nurse because I wanted to help others and have a profession that could support me while working in a community. I like being a nurse because it’s a profession that makes a difference and never stops giving. – Lynda Tanner, RN, MSN, President & CEO I chose to be a nurse, and a hospice nurse in particular, because it was a calling. When my mother was dying, she was on hospice care at home, and I was her main caregiver. For many, dying is shrouded in mystery. I was called to pull aside the veil and step into that mystery, how better to do this than to become a hospice nurse. – Susan “Miki” McGibbon, RN, Clinical Hospice Manager I chose to be a nurse because I wanted to give back to a profession that has given so much to me and my family. Before I was a nurse, I was in and out of hospitals due to some health issues my son had when he was a baby. As a mother, there is nothing scarier; and I got through it because of the nurses. – Jadona Collier, RN, Clinical Hospice Manager

I chose to be a nurse because I wanted to be able to serve people in the most tangible way possible, to walk with them through their hardest time, and let them know that they are valuable. – Sena Woodall, RN, MSN, Director of Hospice Join VNA Health in celebrating mothers, nurses, and caregivers.

Thank You to our Local Heroes!

Santa Barbara Looking From Behind Masks to Re-Open

Governor Releases Updated Policy

C

ALIFORNIANS HAVE FLATTENED THE COVID-19 CURVE as the results of the stay at home order issued on March 19th. The success of these efforts allowed the state to move forward to Stage 2 on May 8th. “Californians, working together, have flattened the curve. Because of that work, our health data tells us that California can enter the next stage of this pandemic and gradually begin to restart portions of our economy,” said Governor Newsom. “It’s critical that businesses and employers understand how they can reduce the risk of transmission and better protect their workers and customers. COVID-19 will be present in our communities until there is a vaccine or therapeutic, and it will be up to all of us to change our behavior and eliminate opportunities for the disease to spread.” Stage 2 of the Resilience Roadmap allows for the gradual reopening of retail (curbside only), manufacturing, and logistics. Later there will be the relaxing of retail restrictions, adapting and reopen schools, child care, offices, and limited hospitality, and personal services. The Resilience Roadmap stages that California is using to guide its gradual reopening process are: Stage 1: Safety and Preparedness; Stage 2: Lower-Risk Workplaces; Stage 3: HigherRisk Workplaces; and Stage 4: End of Stay at Home Order.

Robin Elander Named Downtown Santa Barbara Interim Executive Director

D

OWNTOWN SANTA BARBARA has named Robin Elander as its new Interim Executive Director. She will start her new job on May 11th. Downtown Santa Barbara (DSB), commonly referred to in local circles as “the DO,” has over 1200 members and comprises the city’s largest Business Improvement District (BID). It is responsible for promoting downtown businesses, non-profits, and associate members. DSB has for many years also administered the City’s Plaza Maintenance contract. Elander has a master’s degree in Public Policy and Administration and a bachelor’s degree in Park, Recreation, and Tourism Management. She has worked for numerous municipal Robin Elander governments and nonprofits. Elander began her career working on large-scale projects in diverse neighborhoods in Raleigh, North Carolina from 1999-2002, then for the City of Ventura from 2002-2011. She has worked locally since 2011, supporting the startup efforts of Impact Hub, now KIVA SB. She also has extensive event experience and has worked with The Fund for Santa Barbara and many other local non-profits and organizations. She also does business consulting and is founder / director of Global Good Impact. Many people know Elander in her role as the Executive Director of the Santa Barbara Summer Solstice Celebration, where she’s worked for the last five years. That annual event draws over 100,000 people. She will be continuing with Solstice this summer to put on a virtual community workshop and parade while serving as Interim Executive Director for Downtown Santa Barbara. “It’s going to take us all working together to recover, innovate, and grow in these unprecedented circumstances,” related Elander. “Let’s get the conversations started and make some downtown magic happen.” www.downtownsb.org

EELINGS ARE MIXED HERE AND ACROSS THE COUNTRY about when and how to re-open the economy in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. While questions about who will watch the children and when testing will begin continue to swirl, last Friday, about 100 locals gathered for a mostly car-based (and protected) protest. Signs and conversations made it evident that they believed opening immediately is the answer. Similar gatherings – some much larger – were repeated around the state, many without the benefit of social distancing and face masks. Governor Newsom was not convinced by the demonstrations, though re-opening has been on his agenda. Last week he laid out criteria for what he and his advisors believe will safely allow for the addition of activities and businesses to the thousands of essential businesses already open. This week he designated May 7th as a day of prayer for historic challenges and will announce additional businesses and recreation sites to open. According to him, “When it comes to deciding between state or local rules, it is the strictest rules that apply.” Here in Santa Barbara, that meant that the municipal golf course and Glen Annie Golf Course opened their gates to eager golfers - all working to play at a good distance from each other. The County has contracted with a consulting firm to help develop a reopening plan with blue ribbon committees around the county. The firm, recommended by San Luis Obispo County, is called REACH, a nonprofit that specializes in economic development problem solving. The Santa Barbara Farmer’s Market continues to be open with people observing physical distancing and participants wearing the face masks now mandated by the city while shopping and during various activities. As the state progresses to the Governor’s Stage 2 this Friday, more businesses will open - though mostly for curbside service only - no shopping for shoes inside or sitting down for a meal at a restaurant. Locally, testing for the Novel Coronavirus is on the rise and available for everyone with testing sites open in both north and south county. While new cases continue to rise (70 new cases were reported Wednesday with 66 of them at the Federal Prison in North County) hospitalizations are down and the numbers of those who have fully recovered are on the rise. The timing of the move to re-open involves complex considerations pitting people’s physical welfare and a potential second wave of deaths against people’s and businesses’ economic welfare, with some instances of economic hardship already impacting people’s ability to feed their children and themselves - though that was not necessarily the case for all of Friday’s protesters.

FTER A BEAUTIFUL WEEKEND, the sun lovers were definitely out, happily with a good deal of social distancing. Why, you may ask? Because the Santa Barbara strand was being monitored just to make sure everyone was a safe distance from each other, certainly not the Coney Island scene captured at many beaches the weekend before. A great idea actually, because there was plenty of sand and water to go around. Sailboats were floating about offshore along with a few swimmers, almost like a normal Spring/Summer weekend. Almost. The real excitement took place in Summerland on the Friday before. About 2:30pm, the Carpinteria-Summerland Fire Protection and an ambulance received a report of a woman who had been bitten by what was suspected as a shark while swimming 60 feet offshore near Padaro Lane. She was transported to Cottage Hospital and eventually released with relatively minor wounds, a couple of one inch lacerations to her foot. She reported that the shark might have been five to six feet in length, with a black dorsal fin. According to a dispatch from the Sheriff, there had been several other sightings in the area, including Santa Claus Lane and off Carpinteria State Park. Historical data indicates that white sharks are quite common south of Pt. Conception and north of the Baja California peninsula, an area known as the Southern California Bight. “We occasionally see white sharks close to shore because Southern California, especially the Southern California Bight … is known to be a nursery for white sharks in the northeast Pacific,” Dr. Chris Lowe, director of California State University, Long Beach’s Shark Lab, explained to The Log, a marine centered publication in 2017. “The way we know is that it’s not uncommon for fishermen to catch baby white sharks off our coastal piers anytime between May and about October.” The likelihood of spotting – or catching – a white shark coincides with water temperature: the warmer the water,

WEST. GO GOWEST.

the more likely they’ll be in the area. The shark that appeared on Friday off Padaro Lane was most likely a juvenile seeking warmer waters, that somehow bumped into the woman and then swam away. It seems that sharks have been around a whole lot longer than we have – say, 400 million years! How’s that for a number? Not to disturb Steven Spielberg’s scary image of that 25 foot Great White man-eating, boat crushing image of a predatory shark, the facts are quite different. Sharks are rarely interested in dining on humans and find their delights in seals, seal lions, porpoises, and large fish such as tuna. Speaking of predators, the greatest predators are actually humans: the dangers of overfishing, hunting for sport, and the taste of the shark’s fin that brings thousands of dollars on the open market, have culled the shark population to a degree that they have become endangered due to human activity. They are actually sleek, beautiful animals that help to keep the ecological balance of the oceans so necessary for our own environment. If you are interested in more information about sharks, I’d like to suggest a couple of online lectures on the Santa Barbara Maritime Museum’s website given by Richard Salas and Dr. Chris Lowe. Discover them at www.sbmm.org/events. Remaining vigilant during the months between Spring and Fall when the young sharks tend to explore the warmer waters closer to the shore is nonetheless important for swimmers. Santa Barbara County Parks posted “Shark Advisory Signs” at Santa Claus Lane and Loon Point in Summerland Saturday morning to warn beach goers of the potential danger. On the other hand, if you’re looking for some real fun, Steven Spielberg’s JAWS still takes the cake! Photo by Talia Cohen

The Coming Anxiety Pandemic By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

A

www.adpemploymentreport.com

MERICANS’ CONFIDENCE IN THEIR FUTURE is dropping substantially as they decide who to trust during the COVID-19 pandemic. Hence what Nobel laureate economist Robert Shiller has called the result of the loss of confidence—an anxiety pandemic. Dr. Shiller’s predictions on financial behavior include a psychological element. As can be seen from the rising debate over masks, or when and how to open public spaces, the level of anxiety over this pandemic is already sky high. This, unfortunately, will slow down any sustainable recovery that doesn’t take into account how consumers in particular react to the remedies being proposed to tame COVID-19. A good outcome doesn’t look good at the moment because of the mixed messages coming from on high—the federal government vs. states, Trump’s advisors vs. actual

scientific experts. “It is not good news when two pandemics are at work simultaneously,” Shiller said in a recent ProjectSyndicate column. “One can feed the other. Business closures, soaring unemployment, and loss of income fuel financial anxiety, which may, in turn, deter people, desperate for work, from taking adequate precautions against the spread of the disease.” The University of Michigan’s final April sentiment survey sank to a seven-year low of 71.8. The current conditions component bore the brunt of the deterioration, falling 33 points to 74.3. Expectations posted a smaller decline, with that index falling just ten points, albeit to a lower level of 70.1. The record low for the monthly Michigan headline index is 51.7, set 40 years ago, and that could be repeated. Expectations for the recovery are now running all other the map. The White House has revised its estimate of coronavirus deaths from 100,000 to more than 200,000, while Washington state modelers raised their estimate to 135,000 deaths, in part because of some states opening too early and thus ignoring White House guidelines of at least

Limits on Food Delivery Fees Beings Considered

Economic VOICE

two weeks of declining infection rates before lifting stay-at-home orders. Why so much confusion? Major economists are beginning to sound alarms. Nobel economist Paul Krugman attributes the uncertainty of message to Trump and the Republican Party’s refusal to rely on scientists for advice. “The disdain for experts, preference for incompetent loyalists and failure to learn from experience are standard operating procedure for the whole modern G.O.P.,” he said recently. Obama economic advisor Austan Goolsbee said as much on the struggles to provide recovery money: “The administration has been adamant that it is not required to be fully transparent or accountable in handling these (recovery) funds…They undermine the credibility of the crisis response, which the government will desperately need soon enough.” Add to this the latest employment numbers. Private payroll data service ADP just predicted a loss of 20 million payroll jobs in its latest private sector survey. In other words, we will be seeing much darker days ahead if the American public cannot trust the words of our leaders. They cannot unite if they are listening to different voices. “It’s not about red or blue states,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has been saying at his daily press conference. “It’s not about ‘you’ or ‘me’, it’s about ‘we.’

ELIVERY FOOD APPS HAVE COME UNDER THE WATCHFUL EYE of the Los Angeles City Council, because of fees as high as 30 percent are being charged to restaurants by delivery services. As a result, a city ordinance governing charges is being considered. The proposed ordinance would hold delivery fees to 15 percent of the purchase price per order during the COVID-19 pandemic. DoorDash recently lowered its commission fees to restaurants with five or fewer locations by 50 percent and San Francisco placed a 15 percent ceiling on delivery fees earlier this month, with New York looking at a ten percent limit, according to the Los Angeles Times.

A Message About Taking Action:

It’s Your Moment to Shine

A

S THE INITIAL SHOCK AND PANIC WEAR OFF and as a sense of the immensity of the impacts of the pandemic and the disparities it has brought into the open become clear, it is very important to decide where you stand and how you want to respond. In our community, the varied responses have been amazing. They offer all of us hope and connection. People care. But, now we’re entering a new phase and each of us is tasked with an ongoing opportunity to evaluate how we as individuals and community members will stand, in this time. Will you look first to those you love? Most will. Will you look to your street and the neighbors you’ve seen over the months and years you’ve been calling Santa Barbara home? Hopefully. Will you look to the businesses that have provided the context for your life, here in our exquisitely beautiful paradise? Looking around, everyone needs the arm of community wrapped around unsteady shoulders family, individuals, businesses, nonprofits - everyone. While the shelter in place orders haven’t been lifted, we may not be able to literally extend our hands to lift and embrace. But we can do that in other ways. At VOICE Magazine, we have been raising up the efforts of our community members, as well as offering needed updates and information - along with sharing the voices of our regular columnists and community members. This unfortunately comes at a difficult time for us as a local media outlet. We were impacted by the general decline in advertising revenue for printed papers even prior to the catastrophic effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on our economy. But, the Community of Santa Barbara and the community of the world is called into action by the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our city, our lives, our ways of doing business, our families will never be able to return to their old normals. We all are moving forward - now by Sheltering-in-Place; later, by re-emerging with a new sense of the importance of everyone working together to support each other and help everyone evolve into people and businesses prepared to live in a world where pandemics are part of everyone’s experience. If you are able, please support us, VOICE Magazine during this transitional time. If you’re reading our digital version, please forward it to a friend and encourage them to sign up for a free subscription. If your business is about to re-open, we applaud you. Consider an advertisement. We have ads that fit anyone’s budget. Or, consider an outright gift. Our readers have been very supportive in the past and we thank them for their generosity over the weeks and years. You are important to us and keep us going.

The response of every single person is, and will be, integral to the health of our community. VOICE Magazine will continue to support the people and nonprofits, the businesses and government agencies working on the front lines by providing important public information, and business and personal news to sustain Kerry Methner, Ph.D. Mark Whitehurst, Ph.D. community life. And, we’ll continue to Publisher & Editor Publisher & Editor support our creative community with stories, information, reviews, and news. For the past 26 years VOICE Magazine (AKA CASA Magazine) has remained free to Santa Barbara residents, both in print and digitally. With your continued support we are planning to go forward into the future. Journalism is evolving, though. Over 50 percent of local news sources have disappeared since 1991 - more since the pandemic has shuttered businesses. In our community we have seen many loved media outlets come and go. We’ve been blessed that while providing local service, we have managed to outlive many of them. VOICE Magazine has survived because of its advertisers, readers, and its hard working staff that put in countless hours to support a diverse community that believes in being inclusive. We thank-you, each and every one of you! We hope you will consider stepping up with your helping hand.

Sincerely,

Kerry & Mark It’s time to decide how you will respond in this new time. We hope your response will include making a contribution today. VOICE Magazine: 924 Anacapa Street, suite B1-F; Santa Barbara, Ca. 93101 Phone: 805-965-6448 • email: publisher@voicesb.com

Alive And Well With Art

By Edward Goldman / Art Matters

Y FRIENDS, YOUR RESPONSE TO MY LAST ARTMATTERS NEWSLETTER was so enthusiastic that I decided to continue to share with you the photos of the artworks that you love and enjoy in your homes. Penny Wolin, a photographer par excellence and a dear friend of mine sent me a photo comprised of multiple images, of yours truly. There is quite a story behind it. In 1987 Penny invited me to her studio and photographed me with a camera that her brother brought back from his recent trip to the Soviet Union. She was joking that this Russian camera was so primitive she planned on throwing it out. But before throwing it out, she wanted to use it at least once to photograph me, her Russian Penny Wolin, Untitled (1987) friend. Next day after photographing me, Penny called me after stepping out of the dark room where she developed these photos. There was a big surprise in her voice, “Edward, never mind this damn camera, I can’t believe how well these photos came out!” Now 30+ years later this photo Gilbert “Magu” Lujan, Our Family Car taken by Penny Wolin stares at me from the wall behind Petersen Automotive Museum my computer…. Not all of our favorite artworks are hanging on the walls, some of them are hiding in our garage. Yes, I am talking about cars. Paul Dunlap shared with me a photo of his car, painted over by well-known Chicano artist Gilbert “Magu” Lujan. I remember seeing this gorgeous painting/sculpture/car on display at the Petersen Automotive Museum exhibition, The High Art of Riding Low (2017). Wouldn’t it be a dream to drive this car down Pacific Coast Highway? Lionel and Ariane Sauvage gave us a peek of their collection, including impressive life-size bronze sculpture by French sculptor Christophe Charbonnel (b. 1967). There is no cross behind this crucifix, but still Jesus hangs over the collection of European art on the walls. It strikes me as very challenging juxtaposition of classical and contemporary art, the juxtaposition Christophe Charbonnel, Christ that one would expect to see only in a daring museum exhibition. I have been friends with Lori and Jack Grapes for many, many years- through which we have followed the careers of the number of the artists we both liked and got to know on a personal level. Here is an image of a small painting (1993) by Margaret Kelley (b. 1954) whom we Margaret Kelley, Untitled 1993 met while she was still living in LA before moving to Germany. To see her small and large paintings, bursting with energy was a pure joy. Some of them were 50-60 feet long on paper wrapped around gallery walls. Here is a link to her website: www.m-kelley.com/espresso Now, let’s take a look at this sensual and seductive large marble sculpture, that my friends Jane and Michael Wilson enjoy moving around the garden at their house in London. It is made by American sculptor Helaine Blumenfeld (b. 1942), and it is titled Sappho in reference to ancient Greek poet Sappho. From this particular angle the sculpture looks as if two bodies are embracing each other. Michael describes it as “puff of smoke” which represents the “flame of passion.” And Jane compares it to “what you see when you blow a candle out…a puff of smoke making its way upwards to the heavens.” Looking at this photo and reading my friends loving description of their sculpture I fantasize putting my arms gently around this irresistible white Carrara marble “puff of smoke.” Photo Courtesy Paul Dunlap

Identifying the Novel Coronavirus

May 8, 2020

Scientists develop a faster, less expensive COVID-19 test that can be deployed in the field By Sonia Fernandez / The UC Santa Barbara Current

HEN YOU TAKE ON SOMETHING AS VIRULENT AS THE NOVEL CORONAVIRUS, you have to act fast. In the three months since the first report of COVID-19 infection in the United States, the virus has spread to all 50 states and U.S. territories except for American Samoa, Micronesia, Palau, and the Marshall Islands. It has caused quarantines, lockdowns, illness, and death, and brought abrupt and significant changes to life as we know it. One of the greatest frustrations in the response to the pandemic in the U.S. has come from the lack of tests. COVID-19 is swift and stealthy, spreading through person-to-person contact as well as via contaminated surfaces. Many carriers are asymptomatic, often unaware they are shedding the virus wherever they go. How can its path be traced, let alone predicted, if we can’t figure out who has it — and who doesn’t? One of the main reasons for the lack of testing can be the critical and worldwide shortage of essential reagents needed to detect the virus, said UC Santa Barbara molecular biologist Max Wilson. “They are depleted around the world,” said Wilson, who with his colleagues a few weeks ago donated 600 “reactions” to Santa Diego Acosta-Alvear Barbara’s Cottage Health System Assistant Professor to aid their efforts to identify who could be infected. Currently, Santa Barbara County reports 544 cases and nine fatalities due to COVID-19 infection — a relatively low rate of infection that can be attributed to effective social distancing. However, it is highly likely that the true number of carriers is far higher; testing is currently limited to particularly vulnerable individuals, such as Carolina Arias the elderly and those who may Assistant Professor have visited a coronavirus hotspot Graduate Diversity or had contact with a confirmed COVID-19 sufferer and are presenting symptoms themselves. Wilson, along with colleagues Kenneth S. Kosik, Diego AcostaAlvear, and Carolina Arias are hoping to help change this situation. They have developed a CRISPR-based test that promises to be just as sensitive as conventional tests, but also faster and deployable in the Max Wilson field — qualities that the current Assistant Professor method of testing lacks. And because the researchers’ CREST (Cas13-based, Rugged, Equitable, Scalable Testing) assay is based on a method different from the conventional PCR (polymerase chain reaction) test, it is not subject to the ongoing reagent shortage. “We’ve scaled up massively,” Wilson said. “For example, we’ve purified enough of the protein for our CRISPR-based assay to do Kenneth S. Kosik 500,000 tests in one go.” Harriman Professor of The researchers’ work is in Neuroscience preprint form at bioRxiv.

The Hunt for Viral RNA By far the most common test for the novel coronavirus — and the one endorsed by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) — is a real-time PCR test, in which genetic material (in this case, single strand RNA) is extracted from sample tissue and converted into double-helix DNA by exposing it to an enzyme called a reverse transcriptase. “DNA is way more stable and we’re way better at working with and detecting it,” Wilson said. Placed in a mixture of reagents, and subjected to cycles of heat and cooling, the DNA strands separate and “primer” molecules designed to recognize the virus’s genetic material attach to sections of the genome. An enzyme then copies the missing parts of the strand between the primers and a fluorescent probe signals the complete copy. Now there are twice as many DNA strands as before, and the cycle repeats until millions to billions of strands are present. A fluorescence in the sample indicates that the genetic material has been recognized as being from the SARS-CoV-2 virus, and duplicated, amplifying the signal. Though sensitive, the real-time PCR test can take up to several days to return results. The researchers’ assay detects the virus in a more direct manner. Based on CRISPR gene editing technology in which bacterial Cas (CRISPR associated) proteins seek, find and interact with genetic material, the method uses the gene-seeking capability of these proteins to scope out the coronavirus’s genome. “In general, these Cas proteins are used by bacteria as a sort of immune system,” Wilson explained. Cas9, the protein most closely associated with CRISPR, is used by bacteria as a pair of programmable “molecular scissors” to recognize DNA sequences from viruses and mark them for destruction. “But this coronavirus and other viruses have RNA genomes, and other Cas systems have evolved to recognize RNA,” Wilson said of Cas13, the protein of choice for this application. Instead of cutting specific sequences of genetic material, Cas13, when it finds its target, will “turn into a nonspecific enzyme that degrades any sequence of RNA,” Wilson said. In the microbial world, when Cas13 is turned on in a bacteria by infection with a virus, it will typically degrade the bacteria’s RNA in an action somewhat akin to throwing one’s self on a grenade. “There’s actually some thought that that bacterial ‘suicide’ is a form of protection to help the population of bacteria around it,” Wilson said. “It’s the ultimate form of selfquarantine.” For coronavirus detection, the researchers programmed Cas13 to recognize specific sites of the virus’s genome. “Once it locks on to those sites and recognizes them, the enzyme becomes active,” Wilson said. Fluorescent indicators glow in the researchers’ assay when the enzyme starts chewing on nonspecific RNA. “Our little wells just light up if the virus is present when we mix all these things together,” he said — no delay, no machine needed. In the effort to deploy this as an additional method of

novel coronavirus detection, the CREST assay faces the same hurdles as many of the other emerging coronavirus tests: FDA approval requirements and lack of recognition from the CDC. Then there is the fact that it was developed in a research lab and not in a clinical laboratory, which means that per privacy rules, the identities of subjects cannot be linked to the specific results. “Right now we cannot distribute it for diagnostic purposes,” said Wilson, who with his team is on the cusp of rolling out trials. “We are evaluating the potential need and hurdles.” Indeed, the landscape around COVID-19 diagnostics is constantly changing: The FDA has been issuing emergency use authorizations for point-of-care COVID-19 diagnostics to “expand the number and variety of diagnostic tests,” as major pharmaceutical companies are gearing up to share resources and increase testing capacity. “It appears that the UCSB team has produced what Dr. Deborah Birx asked for earlier this week — a testing breakthrough,” said Joseph Incandela, UC Santa Barbara’s vice chancellor for research. “They did it while shifting to teaching remotely, taking care of kids at home, and all the other challenges of the situation we’re in. This is phenomenal, and I hope that we can now navigate the path of FDA approval quickly, for everyone’s sake.” Tracking Community Transmission Regardless, there’s plenty to do. The researchers want to maximize the capability of the Cas13 test and compare it to the CDC’s test, essentially testing the “gold standard.” “We have shown that CREST is able to detect ten copies of RNA per microliter,” said research team member Carolina Arias, whose research focuses on understanding virus-host interactions. Additionally, the researchers are pursuing a surveillance study wherein they will collect samples from healthy, asymptomatic individuals in the general community to get a sense of where hotspots are, the frequency of asymptomatic infection, data that might inform the logistics of response. They also want to sequence the genome of every positive test for clues on any variants that may have developed as the virus crosses the globe — information, Wilson said, that could prove useful in the search for a treatment or cure. Their findings will be placed online at bioRxiv, a preprint server for the biological sciences that allows researchers to make their findings immediately available before or during journal submission. For scientists whose individual research “ground to a halt” as a result of multiple shutdown orders — first from the campus, then from the state — in response to the pandemic, Wilson, et al are very busy. “I’ve long since mourned that loss,” said Wilson, who joined the biology faculty a year and a half ago and spent his time trying to get his research program off the ground before the pandemic came to town. “But I don’t even worry about it because this is just what we have to do.” On the other hand, the circumstances have presented a unique opportunity to witness the best of science, and of scientists. “I see the scientists in this effort as our nation’s cavalry to fight off this disease,” he said. “And I’ve been completely astounded by the level of coordination and innovation from my colleagues who just a few weeks ago were studying totally different things. And now we’re all COVID-19 researchers working to get the nation back on its feet using science.” Research on this project was also conducted by Jennifer Rauch, Eric Valois, Sabrina C. Solley, Friederike Braig, Ryan S. Lach, and Naomi J. Baxter, all from the Department of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at UCSB.

Someone’s In The Cellar!

A Bottle of Wine To Go, Please!

S

ANTA BARBARA, IT IS NOT JUST YOUR RESTAURANTS WHICH NEED YOU! Your wineries need you, too. Yes, they can’t be open at all for a wine tasting, but many of them are open with the aim of keeping their clientele… and also staying alive. Like restaurants, they have a lot of employees, and they need to keep them working just as much as any restaurant does. Many of the wineries in town are doing pick-up. Some are even offering free delivery within reasonable distance, and usually with a minimum order of bottles. And, of course, they can ship the wine to you if you are reading this online from afar. Yes, most are open limited hours for pick-up. But they are open. So, take a look at some of our favorite wineries with wine tasting rooms here in Santa Barbara. Order a few bottles, and you can have a glass that you can be proud of on that Happy Hour Zoom call.

Au Bon Climat Jim Clendenen is one of the greatest winemakers in America, and argued to be one of the best in the world. We wouldn’t argue that point. Jim’s Pinot Noir is breathtaking. His are Amanda’s favorite Chardonnays. (She got bored with Chardonnay in the 90s, but will always drink Au Bon Climat.) Their tasting room is open for purchase and pickup noon to 2pm daily. Order by phone 10am to 5pm daily. They offer free home delivery (from Goleta to Carpinteria) available for six bottles or more.

Silver Wines Ben Silver was trained by Dan Gehrs way back in the Winemaker University days of Zaca Mesa Wines. Jim Clendenen is also a graduate of Zaca Mesa. So, while Ben’s wines are very different from Jim’s, they are just as wonderful. We love his Pinot Noirs. But we love his Italian varietals and blends even more. They offer free local delivery with no minimum purchase. The tasting room is open for pickup and purchases Thursday through Sunday at varying hours.

And then add in $5 shipping for any size order (only $1 if you are a wine club member). Grassini Family Vineyards • 24 El Paseo • (805) 897-3366 • $5 shipping on any order! • www.GrassiniFamilyVineyards.com

Jamie Slone Wines Jamie and Kim Slone are making some marvelous wines. The single designation wines are great, but he is best known for his red blends.

Paul Casey Knows He’s “Got a Lot of Targets on My Back” – But Is “Giving 110 Percent to Community” D.A. Dudley on In-Home Crimes: ‘We Know It’s Happening – Our Only Chance Is if People Step Up’

S

By Jerry Roberts / Newsmakers / www.newsmakerswithjr.com

ANTA BARBARA COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY JOYCE DUDLEY checked in via iPad from an undisclosed location near the beach on Tuesday, to talk about how the coronavirus has upended the criminal justice system - and made some changes to her personal life as well. The D.A. described how the pandemic shutdown has effectively switched off many operations of the legal system – due to an ongoing postponement of jury trials, an emergency judicial order mandating “zero bail” for misdemeanors and low-level felonies – and a troubling sudden decline in reports of criminal child and domestic abuse. “Certainly justice delayed is justice denied, and justice (so far) has been delayed for eight weeks,” Dudley said in a Newsmakers interview. “There’s no chance of a jury trial until, I believe the latest ruling was mid-June, and it could be extended beyond that. “So whether it’s a criminal justice case that needs to be resolved or a civil matter that needs to be resolved, the fact that a critical part of our system has put its brakes on, and stopped, means that people are suffering from that,” she added. On a personal level, Dudley is doing as much work as she can via Zoom and other virtual tools. A workout fanatic, she now bikes to work and back on the two days when she goes in, and has District Attorney transformed her living room into a stay-at-home gym. But she Joyce Dudley admits she’s struggling with some privations of social distancing. “I haven’t had a hug in seven weeks from anybody,” said Dudley, who lost her husband last year. “I think that’s just a silly thing, when I think about all the other things that people are going through, but I have these beautiful grandchildren I can’t touch (and) my sons. “And I think sometimes during my worst moments, I go to exercise or talk to friends, but sometimes you just need a hug,” she added. “I miss them the most on a very personal, very selfish level. I think the first hug I get is going to be so sweet.” Top priority. On March 13th, a week before Gov. Newsom issued his statewide stay-athome order, Dudley gathered with her executive team to talk through the complex criminal justice issues at stake as the COVID-19 pandemic steadily advanced, and began transforming day-to-day life in Santa Barbara and around the world. At the top of the priority list was the category of “in-home crimes” – domestic violence, spousal rape, child abuse, elder abuse and animal abuse – which would be enabled behind closed doors as stay-at-home orders became more strict. Dudley explained in the interview: “As we thought about, what are the ramifications on Santa Barbara County, who are we not going to have eyes on – it’s people behind the door of their homes. “Under normal circumstances, kids go to school, people walk the streets, people see their family, people get to grocery shop without masks on; a whole bunch of things happen, so that when there is some concern (about in-home crimes), somebody reports it. “Now, all the mandated reporters – and people who just care about you reporters – aren’t seeing those victims. “The other piece is that the stress level in many homes is off the chart. Financial burdens, children home from school, fear of getting the disease, lost loved ones, loved ones in the hospital, anxiety is up, stress is up and alcohol and drugs are nearby. “We all knew these crimes would be increasing. The problem is, we all knew the reports would be decreasing.” The D.A. worked with other law enforcement, county officials and social agencies to roll out a new public awareness campaign, centered on a new, bilingual hotline number (805-5682400), staffed 24/7, to field reports. The public campaign has focused on urging friends, family members and neighbors to call the hotline, because victims themselves often are reluctant to report abuse, she said. “They’re either intimidated – they fear this, for the sake of their life, for the sake of their children’s lives, for the sake of their elders lives, their pet’s life, they fear if they make that phone call something horrible will happen. “That’s one, and two is, that neighbors just don’t want to get involved so the only chance we have is if people step up,” she added. “If friends, family and neighbors make those phone calls...it’s going to get the top priority in our criminal justice system.” Watch the full interview at: https://www.newsmakerswithjr.com/post/d-a-dudley-on-in-homecrimes-we-know-it-s-happening-our-only-chance-is-if-people-step-up?postId=5eb234db6f94ad00173d7918

OT SINCE HERCULES HIT THE AUGEAN STABLES has one man faced such a catastrophic clean-up job as City Administrator Paul Casey, who’s confronting massive wreckage the pandemic has inflicted on Santa Barbara’s economy and City Hall’s budget. “This is gonna be brutal,” Casey tells Newsmakers. “I don’t want to give any false hope that the community’s not going to feel this...in service reductions.” In a one-on-one interview, the city’s veteran chief executive afforded a substantive and detailed outline of the enormous challenges wrought by the most severe public health crisis since the 1950s polio epidemic and the economic SB City Administrator collapse it has triggered, the deepest at least since the Great Recession. He also Paul Casey described the status of City Hall efforts to respond to a looming $30 million budget gap, and talked about ongoing negotiations over “concessions” by public employee unions. Casey stressed that he has his head down working on the immediate crisis, and said that plans for sweeping, long-range strategies that re-envision the future economy of Santa Barbara will have to wait, even as calls grow louder in the media and in pockets of the community for a far-reaching and visionary approach to the recovery. “I haven’t thought a lot about five years from now, because I am managing in the moment and trying to understand where we’re going to be six months from now,” he said. “We’ve got this huge crisis. We’ve got to focus on the near-term first just to get people back on their feet and then talk about longer term visions.” Amid the crisis, however, Casey also said that he remains focused on streamlining and improving operations of the embattled Community Development Department, a target of developers and elements of the business community unhappy with its slow and exasperating operations on planning, permitting and building issues. He said he has made clear to department Director George Buell the urgency of the problem. “George Buell has a challenge on his hands and we need to see improvement there,” he said. “I think he understands that as well.” Casey said he has heard the vocal criticism from some individuals and factions of the business community who are openly campaigning for him to be canned, in part because of the problems with Community Development, and who blame him for ineffective, pre-pandemic efforts by the city to mount an aggressive economic development effort to revitalize State Street, build more housing and invigorate downtown business. “I’ve got a lot of targets on my back and arrows coming my way,” Casey acknowledged. “City managers and city administrators are often in the line of fire in lots of communities and you’re seeing it more so now up and down the state,” he added. “I hear the criticism. I get it. But I wake up everyday and I give 110 percent to the community.” Watch the full interview at: https://www.newsmakerswithjr.com/post/paul-casey-knows-he-s-got-a-lot-of-targets-on-my-back-but-is-giving-110-percent-to-community?postId=5eab67e0e39df80017323588

Meagan Harmon on SB: ‘This is a Moment for Us to Figure Out What We Want Our City to Be’

A

By Jerry Roberts / Newsmakers / www.newsmakerswithjr.com

MID AN OUTBREAK OF POLITICAL HOSTILITIES AT CITY HALL, SB Councilmember Meagan Harmon tells Newsmakers that the harsh challenges of the coronavirus pandemic represent a unique opportunity to reimagine downtown and revamp the local economy. “This is a moment for us to figure out what we want our city to be,” the District 6 council representative said on Wednesday, in the latest in our series of Zoom Chats. The emergency of the pandemic, which already is forecast to cost the city at least $30 million, coupled with chronic delays to move forward on a plan City Council Member to revitalize State Street and downtown business, now have combined into an Meagan Harmon urgent need for City Hall to devise a coherent, long-term strategy for economic development. One day after an unusually tense and volatile city council meeting that generated angry words and sharp exchanges, Harmon offered her perspective on the state of interlocking policy and political conflicts that shape the broader debate and controversy. Among the issues: The failure of city planners to move with urgency on a set of amendments to the Average Unit-Sized Density program, aimed at spurring housing development downtown. The delay in an audit of the Community Development Department, whose tangled operations and byzantine workflows over permitting have frustrated developers, residents and councilmembers alike. A clash between Mayor Cathy Murillo and councilmembers Alexandra Gutierrez and Oscar Gutierrez over the mayor’s appointment of a new “Business Advisory Team” to help lead the city out of a pandemictriggered recession, a move that also drew sharp criticism from State Street property owners and managers. Sticking to her glass-half-full line, Harmon attributed the friction and antagonisms that surfaced at Tuesday’s meeting to the “passion” that all the various personalities and parties in the disputes feel about the gargantuan task of getting the city back on track economically. At a time when some prominent individuals in the business community are unhappy with the mayor over these and other matters, and looking for a candidate to challenge her re-election next year, we asked Meagan if she is considering such a move. She told us she has ruled out a 2021 run for mayor.

Asset and Loan Growth Reported by Montecito Bank & Trust

Santa Barbara Symphony Embarks on Next Phase Upon Departure of CEO Kevin Marvin

I

N A FIRST QUARTER REPORT, Montecito Bank & Trust’s assets grew 6.1 percent or $92.08 million during the 12-month period ending March 31st, closing at $1.60 billion, with loan growth of 12.99 percent year-over-year, ending the first quarter at $1.08 billion. Deposit growth saw a 3.27 percent lift year-over-year, with quarterend deposits totaling $1.37 billion. Total net income for the first quarter is flat at $2.9 million year over year. The bank's total risk-based capital remains very strong at 14.59 percent, exceeding the ten percent regulatory minimum required to be considered wellcapitalized. “Our hearts go out to our Central Coast communities, and our hands applaud the front line professionals who are working tirelessly to keep us all safe and healthy as we continue to weather the unimaginable impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic. For 45 years Montecito Bank & Trust has stood strong with our communities and our commitment to making the communities we serve better places to live and work is as alive today as it was 45 years ago,” stated Janet Garufis, Chairman and CEO of Montecito Bank & Trust. “While the Bank’s first quarter performance was solid in many areas, it’s what our associates have done, and continue to do day in and day out, since we shifted our operations on March 16th that inspires me each day,” continued Garufis. “As we continue to adhere to the guidelines and policies in place, we remain committed to providing a world class experience in this new normal, and most importantly, securing as much Paycheck Protection Program funding as we are able to for eligible businesses, organizations, and individuals across the Central Coast. It is my commitment to do so until the SBA’s funds are depleted. This is one of the greatest challenges of our lifetime, but our communities will prevail and Montecito Bank & Trust will be there every step of the way.” In April, Montecito Bank & Trust earned the highest marks from both The Findley Reports and Bauer Financial, two independent services which rate the financial performance of banks. Montecito Bank & Trust received a 2018 designation of a Super Premier Performing bank by The Findley Reports, and has been designated a Premier Performing or Super Premier Performing bank 34 times since it opened its doors 44 years ago. The bank was also awarded a 5-star, Superior Bauer rating for December 31, 2018 financial data.

OLLOWING THE RESIGNATION OF KEVIN MARVIN, CEO of the Santa Barbara Symphony Association, the Symphony Board has appointed veteran arts leader Kathryn R. Martin as interim CEO/Executive Director. As a transition strategist and Next Chapter Coach, she has a 30-year career leading arts and culture organizations during times of change and transition. Martin will once again bring her vast arts leadership experience to our community, as she so successfully did for the Santa Barbara Symphony several years ago and most recently, at the Tucson Symphony Orchestra. Martin and her husband recently moved to Santa Barbara and is a board member of the Association of California Symphony Orchestras. Marvin has resigned and returned to Colorado for personal and family reasons. During his tenure, the Symphony presented three seasons of concerts under the direction of Music and Artistic Director, Maestro Nir Kabaretti performed by Central Coast and Southern Californian orchestra musicians. Marvin was responsible for bringing the healing power of music to the community with the benefit concert Music for Healing and Community at the Granada Theatre, after the twin disasters of fire and devastating mudslides. In addition, he organized and presented the Symphony’s successful 65th Anniversary Gala fundraiser. Kathryn R. Martin is the Symphony’s interim “We are proud to have been led by Kevin and we wish him success in CEO/Executive Director his future endeavors,” Board President Janet Garufis stated. “We are Santa Barbara’s Symphony and have been here for our community during many challenges over our more than 65-year history - a testimonial to the healing power of symphonic music and the loyalty of our Symphony family and friends. The Board, artistic leadership, musicians, and staff all share a resolve and optimism in this fluid environment.” Clearly, and especially because of the human and financial impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, this next phase in the Symphony’s journey creates an unprecedented opportunity to explore new and innovative ways to deliver its mission in virtual settings, capitalize on the Symphony’s reputation for artistic excellence, and experience partnering with schools and youth throughout the region in music education programs. A national search is anticipated to be launched in the Fall.

Montecito Bank & Trust is the oldest and largest locally owned community bank in the Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Founded in 1975, the bank celebrated its 45th anniversary on March 17, 2020 and operates 11 branch offices in Santa Barbara, Goleta, Solvang, Montecito, Carpinteria, Ventura, Camarillo and Westlake Village. www.montecito.bank

The Santa Barbara Symphony was founded in 1953 on the belief that a special city deserves a special orchestra. www.thesymphony.org

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

By Kristen Rohm, Hospice of Santa Barbara

W

E ARE ALL GRIEVING. We have all lost our normal lives. We have been ‘sheltering in place’ for many weeks now. Our schools have closed for the rest of the year. Many of us, the lucky ones, are working from home. Unfortunately, too many of us have lost our jobs or had our hours reduced. Some of us must continue to go out to our work which means that we are at far higher risk of catching COVID-19 because we are interacting with many people. There has been a lot of loss for all of us. Loss of important events like school, sports, music. Large life markers like graduation, weddings, births, and deaths. We are not able to gather in comfort or in celebration and it’s hard. We may be surprised by all our feelings – sadness, fear, laughter, anxiety, anger, gratitude, depression all mixed up and right near the surface. Families are at home, spending much more time together without the structures and routines of regular family life. Young children need constant attention and supervision from parents

who are also expected to work. Many are taking care of aging parents or partners whose caregivers can no longer make home visits. Others are alone, day after day. And none of us know how long this uncertainty will last. Maybe the hardest thing of all is that we have lost the illusion of being in control of our lives. And we have lost our sense of safety, for we are all vulnerable now. There are so many things, small and large, that we have had to give up. Some days it might be the big things that get us down or fill our minds with endless worries. Other days, it might be the smallest thing that breaks our heart. My young adult son lives a few minutes away. I can no longer hug him. How I miss those hugs. What do you miss? What is the most poignant thing you have lost? Let’s all take a breath together. Remember, we are in this together. We are all grieving. We have all lost so much of what we knew, expected, and planned for. There is no normal anymore, or rather the new normal is just so very strange. And yet, we have been reminded in clear and concrete

Grieving the Loss of Normalcy

ways that we are all connected. Across the globe, all of humanity is affected by the same virus. For me, there is comfort in knowing that you and I share this experience, we are in these tough and challenging times together. So I take a breath and I remind myself, in this moment, I am well. In this moment, I have what I need. In this moment, all of the human family shares my worry, my sadness, my exhaustion. I

am not alone. You are not alone. We are connected by our shared experiences. I am sending my care and compassion to you. I hope you will also send me yours. May we both find moments of unexpected beauty to lighten our days. May we both be kind to ourselves and each other. May we both know gratitude. We are getting through this together. www.hospiceofsantabarbara.org

Forbearance: Be Cautious

B

By Staci Caplan, SBAOR President

ECAUSE OF THE FINANCIAL IMPACTS from the efforts to stop the spread of the coronavirus, homeowners may not be able to afford their mortgage payments. An option that may be available is Forbearance. Forbearance is where you and your lender, or the loan “servicer” on behalf of the lender, agree to put your payments “on hold” for a specified amount of time. Usually there are no added fees or interest during the forbearance period. Be cautious when considering this option, as many servers will offer a payment plan which will increase the monthly payment when payments are resumed or will offer a loan modification to wrap the amount owed into a new loan. However, loan modifications are not possible for every homeowner. Many lenders have their own Staci Caplan guidelines for loan modifications or forbearances. If your financial situation meets the guidelines, a loan modification is possible by documenting your financial hardship. If you do not meet the lender’s guidelines, a loan modification may not be possible. If you cannot pay off the forbearance and do not qualify for a loan modification, you may be at risk of losing your home if you are unable to resume payments. Also, be cautious of scams falsely claiming that they can guarantee a loan modification or forbearance or stop a foreclosure. Avoid scams by contacting your lender directly

to request a loan modification or forbearance that works for you and your lender. Take detailed notes about your calls, who you speak with, what was said, what you need to do, and what offers are discussed. You can do this yourself, without help from anyone and without paying someone a fee. If you cannot negotiate a loan modification yourself or if you do not want to, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) offers free housing counseling through HUD approved, non-profit agencies in California. Go to HUD’s website at www.hud.gov to find counselors. You can work with a legitimate, licensed, and qualified person or company if you cannot negotiate a loan modification by yourself and decide not to use the free counselors provided through HUD. However, beware – you need to find someone who is legitimate, licensed, and qualified by experience and training. It is illegal for anyone (including DRE licensed persons and licensed attorneys) to demand, charge, or collect any advance, up-front, or retainer fees, or any other type of pre-payment compensation, for residential loan modification or forbearance services. Red flags include any type of advance fee payment, guarantees of success, instructions to pay someone or some company other than your home loan lender or servicer, or being advised to miss payments to improve your chances of getting a loan modification. Following this advice will put you on the path to foreclosure. The bottom line is be very careful when considering a forbearance option.

The Santa Barbara Courthouse Legacy Foundation is dedicated to the conservation, restoration, and educational legacy of the historic Santa Barbara Courthouse. “I’m so honored to have the opportunity to lead this incredible organization,” said Fairbanks, an attorney and certified family law specialist with family law offices in Santa Barbara and Los Olivos. “The Santa Barbara Courthouse is an icon for our community, and my goal is to ensure this magnificent building can be enjoyed for many generations to come.” Completed in 1929, the Santa Barbara Courthouse is a nationally recognized architectural gem and one of the most famous examples of the city’s Spanish Colonial Revival civic style. While the County of Santa Barbara is responsible for maintaining the courthouse, it does not have the artistic resources or funds to authentically restore the building. The Santa Barbara Courthouse Legacy Foundation is the only organization dedicated to preserving and restoring the courthouse, which has been designated a local, state, and national historic landmark. Since its founding by a small group of Renee M. Fairbanks committed citizens in 2004, the foundation has funded numerous conservation projects, including restoring murals and paintings, rehabilitating the Hall of Records, and restoring the Courthouse Seth Thomas Tower Clock. Fairbanks has served on the foundation’s board since 2018. She is also active in many other community organizations, including the Legal Aid Foundation of Santa Barbara County, the Fund for Santa Barbara, and the local Animal Shelter Assistance Program. A graduate of UCSB and Santa Barbara College of Law, Fairbanks has spent more than a decade advocating for clients in divorce, legal separation, support, parentage, and custody proceedings in Santa Barbara County and along the Central Coast. She is a member of the Santa Barbara County and the Northern Santa Barbara County bar associations, a past president of the County Bar Foundation, and a former board member of Santa Barbara Women Lawyers. She is also an adjunct professor of law at the Santa Barbara College of Law, where she teaches www.reneemfairbanks.com / www.courthouselegacyfoundation.org community property. Courtesy Photo
