SBPD Officers Receive the Guerry Award

HONORED FOR SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE, nine law enforcement officers in the Santa Barbara police department were awarded the H. Thomas Guerry Award on May 24th.

Officers who received the H. Thomas Guerry Award included: Officer M. Tonello and members of the Santa Barbara Police Department Community Action Team: Sgt. R. DeJohn; Sgt. C. Payne; Ofc. J. Duffy; Ofc. J. Hesketh; Ofc. K. King; Ofc. M . Renaud; Ofc. D. Reyes; and Ofc. T. Van Eyck

Officer Tonello was awarded for his excellent work in 2022, when he responded to the Olive Mill Road

History of the H. Thomas Guerry Awards:

On January 12, 1970, Detective H. Thomas Guerry was conducting an investigation and driving on Chapala Street. The detective noticed two wanted men walking in the area of Ortega Street and Bradbury Avenue. As he approached the intersection, the wanted men split apart from one another and began to walk back to each side of the front of the police vehicle. As the detective stepped from his vehicle, both wanted subjects opened fire with handguns, fatally wounding Detective Guerry. In memory of Tom, the Santa Barbara Citizens Council on Crime established the H. Thomas Guerry award. Each year, law enforcement officers from agencies in the County of Santa Barbara are honored for valor, skill in conflict resolution, and outstanding overall performance. Information courtesy of the California Peace Officers’ Memorial Foundation.

overcrossing of US 101 for a report of a suicidal male threatening to jump off the overpass. Officer Tonello arrived and began primary negotiation with the subject and immediately began to de-escalate the situation and establish rapport. Over the next two hours Officer Tonello patiently negotiated with the subject and eventually convinced him to receive treatment at Cottage Hospital. The peaceful resolution to this challenging situation was due to the tireless commitment of Officer Tonello.


The other officers receiving the H. Thomas Guerry Award are members of the Community Action Team (CAT). The SBPD, in response to the need to partner with communities to build meaningful relationships, created CAT. Their skilled approach as a knowledgeable team has supported the ever-changing and complex needs of the city’s most vulnerable community members.

Santa Barbara Meals On Wheels Recognizes Volunteer Drivers

CELEBRATING VOLUNTEER DRIVERS, Santa Barbara Meals on Wheels held their annual Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on May 10th at the Santa Barbara Carriage and Western Art Museum.

“I drive and Terry jumps out to make the deliveries,” said Joyce Fernandez, whose husband began joining her on their 90-minute route when he retired in 2014. The couple always brings their dog along for the ride, and until recently, they covered two routes. “We really believe in volunteering in our community.”

Sherry LaFerriere received an award for her 25 years of service, and Joyce and Terry Fernandez – who cover a route together – were honored for 15 years of delivering meals throughout Santa Barbara. There were three drivers who have driven for a decade, and five who have reached the five-year mark.

With a team of drivers covering weekly routes, Meals on Wheels delivers hot meals seven days a week. Seniors and homebound individuals receive affordable, nutritious food, and the service helps them stay healthy, independent, and exactly where they want to be – in their homes. Many clients look forward to visits from volunteers who have made personal

“We’ve never missed a day since Meals on Wheels began in 1971, and that’s because our volunteers are so dedicated,” said Dan Kronstadt, Co-President of the nonprofit’s Board of Directors. “They really care about their clients, and today, over 200 clients receive meals freshly prepared by Valle Verde retirement community, our partner for the past 35 years.”

“We don’t receive federal funding but do rely on grants, donations, and the willingness of volunteers to play an active role in daily operations,” said Board Co-President Scott Reid. “We have just two part-time employees, and our board members and volunteers do the rest, from interviewing new clients and delivering food to writing grants and working with our partners at Valle Verde.”

Solvang Amber & Viking Museum to Debut New Viking Ship Exhibit

VOYAGE THROUGH TIME to learn about Viking history and remarkable craftsmanship when the Solvang Amber & Viking Museum reveals an exciting addition on Thursday, June 8th. The home of the nation’s largest museum collection of archaeological Viking artifacts, the Solvang Amber & Viking Museum will now include the Viking ship Snorri, named after Snorri Thorfinnsson, supposedly the first Viking and European born in North America.

The replica ship was built almost exclusively by hand and with axes in order to maintain authenticity to how Vikings would have built ships over a thousand years ago. It was built at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde, Denmark, and is a replica of a ship found onboard the larger, 9thcentury Gokstad Viking ship in Norway.

The ship will join the museum’s authentic Viking swords, spearheads, jewelry, and coins, as well as burial urns from approximately 0-400 A.D., around the time of legendary Danish King Heremod of Beowulf lore. “Killed weapons” from Viking burials are also on display.

“The Viking ship and the archeological artifacts which we’ve been able to secure for the Solvang Amber and Viking Museum are truly unique to this Danish-settled town – which is in and of itself, unique,” said René Gross Kærskov, owner of the Solvang Amber & Viking Museum at The Copenhagen House. “Our Viking history is ingrained in Danish culture, and this enhanced exhibit gives us an avenue for educating visitors about our storied past.” www.TheCopenhagenHouse.com

SB Botanic Garden and CA Native Plant Society Discover Only Known Population of Rare Plant

AN EXCITING LOCAL DISCOVERY has resulted in the capturing of the only photos of living Santa Ynez groundstar plants. Found earlier this month by the California Native Plant Society (CNPS) and Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, the native plant species had not been documented in close to 30 years. Yet thanks to the hard work of local and state botanists, the plant’s only known population has been discovered on Vandenberg Space Force Base.

Scholarship Foundation Holds Awards Ceremony

“It was a true joy to find and observe the Santa Ynez groundstar in nature,” said Dr. Matt Guilliams, the Botanic Garden’s Ken & Shirley Tucker Systematist and Clifton Smith Herbarium Curator. “The plants are quite small and easily go unnoticed most of the year. We look forward to continuing to search for new populations of this rare plant so we can study and learn more about its role in nature and how best to protect it.”

IN A CEREMONY AT THE COURTHOUSE SUNKEN GARDENS, annual awards honoring and recognizing scholarship recipients were presented by the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara and their partner, the Santa Barbara Foundation, on May 24th.


Santa Barbara Beautiful Annual Awards

Save the Date: October 1st Rooted in Beauty

Each of the last 50+ years, Santa Barbara Beautiful has called on our community to recognize and appreciate their neighbors who work to build on the city’s natural beauty. At the Annual Awards, the results of their beautification efforts are recognized. Property award categories have been adapted to meet the real and growing importance of climate change and the need for environmental stewardship.


1. Street Address (required):

2. ZIP (required):

3. Category(s) (required):

4. Property Owner or Business Name:

Scholarship Foundation Board Chair Matt Rowe and Santa Barbara Foundation Board Chair Steve Hicks were the featured speakers at the ceremony. More than 500 people attended, including students, parents, educators, and community leaders.

Prior to this find, the Santa Ynez groundstar (Ancistrocarphus keilii, CRPR 1B.1) was known only from very old records and one or two occurrences. It was originally described as a new species in 2004 from analysis of dried specimens. By piecing together details from these dated documentations, a team comprised of CNPS and Botanic Garden scientists were able to obtain permits to search areas on Vandenberg Space Force Base (VSFB) where the plant was recorded having existed.

This year the Scholarship Foundation will award college and vocational scholarships totaling nearly $7.2 million to 1,864 students throughout Santa Barbara County.

5. What makes this a winning nomination?

6. Submitted by: Telephone/email:

The Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara is the nation’s largest communitybased provider of college scholarships, having cumulatively awarded in excess of $140 million to more than 60,000 county students since its founding in 1962. www.sbscholarship.org

Project collaborators included Dr. Guilliams; CNPS Rare Plant Program Manager Kristen Nelson; Botanic Garden Rare Plant Techs Sean Carson and Kevin Mason; and Center for Environmental Management of Military Lands Lead Botanist Dr. Sarah DeGroot. The search was coordinated with VSFB Botanist Luanne Lum, with location information being provided by Botanic Garden research associate Dr. Dieter Wilken, who was previously the only person to have seen the Santa Ynez groundstar since it was recognized as a distinct species.

According to a report by NatureServe, 34 percent of plants across the United States are at risk for extinction, with California plants facing the most risk. By working to update plant occurrence data, scientists can better understand the status of various species and improve conservation efforts.

“Plants such as this are or could be on the brink of extinction and we can only confidently say they are doing okay once we get eyes on the ground and find them,” said CNPS Rare Plant Program Director Aaron Sims. “Even though this species has been found, the population is extremely limited, and it’s important that land use changes do not occur.”

Our mission is to provide accessible news for everyone along with a broad and inclusive perspective on our local community in both our FREE digital and print editions. If everyone who reads VOICE Magazine supports it, our future will be made secure.

New specimens of the Santa Ynez groundstar were collected for deposit at four herbaria, including the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, Hoover Herbarium at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California Botanic Garden Herbarium, and the herbarium at VSFB.

Neighborhood Restorative Justice Program Seeking Volunteers

IN MAY 2021, the District Attorney’s Office, in partnership with the Second District Supervisor’s Office, implemented a Neighborhood Restorative Justice (NRJP) pilot program. This pilot program served firsttime offenders in the City of Goleta.

The NRJP is a community-driven, pre-filing diversion program designed to divert low-level misdemeanor offenses from entering into the criminal justice system. Offenders in this program are given an opportunity to take responsibility and repair some of the harm they caused through a community-based process using restorative justice principles instead of a courtroom. The NRJP addresses criminal violations that impact the quality of life in the community.

According to Santa Barbara County District Attorney John T. Savrnoch, the Neighborhood Restorative Justice Program will program will be expanding countywide beginning in July 2023. Community panelists and facilitators who will be trained in restorative justice principles and participate in leading restorative justice proceedings (conferences) are being solicited. The facilitators will be trained in leading the conferences and guide participants through a step-by-step restorative process. The panelists play a supportive role in representing the community’s needs, interests and perspectives concerning the crime(s) committed.

To become a volunteer facilitator or panelist: Complete the application and a Live-Scan fingerprinting and criminal record check (Immigrant status is irrelevant and will not be checked.) Volunteers must have no recent felonies or misdemeanors, complete volunteer facilitator and panelist training, and make a two-year time commitment. Bilingual/bicultural Spanish/English volunteers are highly encouraged. For more info and to apply, visit https://da.countyofsb.org or email the program at sbdaneighborhoodrjp@countyofsb.org.

The rich ambiguity of Tár, and why director Todd Field wouldn’t have it any other way

EW CONTEMPORARY FILMS have been dissected as thoroughly, and debated as vigorously, as Tár. The Oscar-nominated 2022 drama, which traces the downfall of a brilliant, world-famous, emotionally abusive orchestra conductor, stubbornly refuses to judge its central character.

Is she a predator who finally gets caught, or an unfair victim of cancel culture? Is her fate at film’s end a deserved punishment, or a moment of grace and renewal? And are all the strange plot twists actually happening, or products of her increasingly unhinged mind?

Don’t expect director Todd Field to provide any answers when he engages in a Q&A with Tyler Morgenstern, assistant director of the Carsey-Wolf Center, Saturday, June 3rd, at UC Santa Barbara’s Pollock Theater. He politely declines all invitations to interpret his work.

But do expect a lively discussion following the 2pm screening of the critically acclaimed film. Tár (the title is an anagram for art) is a great catalyst for conversation.

“The centerpiece of the film is the incredible performance by Cate Blanchett in the title role. I’m interested in how they worked together to create this character who feels so complete that, for a long time, people were convinced she was a real person, and this was a biopic of some kind,” Morgenstern said. “I’m also interested in this question of the persistence of the Global South in the film, and how it might change the way we think about abuse and exploitation. If we take this story of workplace abuse in the Global North and place it in a larger geopolitical frame, as I think Field is inviting us to do, it opens up wider questions about the nature of abuse, where it resides and how it plays out across different scales and intensities.”

To emphasize that easily overlooked part of her origin story, Morgenstern (with the help of UCSB’s Christian Thomas) has arranged to display a photograph created for the film in the theater’s lobby during the event. Created by David Díaz Gonzalez, an affiliate of the Indigenous-focused Peruvian arts nonprofit Xapiri Ground, it features Blanchett in character, her face decorated with ceremonial markings suggestive of her time as a researcher in the Amazon.

The photo can be seen, fleetingly, in the film; it hangs on the wall of the second apartment she keeps as a work space. As a keepsake, it suggests Tár’s time in the rainforest played an important part of her life. More subtly, it raises a potential link between her abusive behavior in Berlin and the histories of exploitation that link the Global North and Global South. “We’re going to dive into that angle at the event,” Morgenstern said.

Global geopolitics aside, “putting the credits right up front basically forces us to recognize the amount of labor that goes into the making of a film,” Morgenstern said. “We then see a film about the kinds of abuse and exploitation that are enabled when one particularly powerful person comes to believe she has earned all of this through sheer individual merit — not through the support and contribution of others. That’s a pretty strong statement!”

“Why do we feel compelled to dominate and rank those within our sphere of influence? What does the animal part of us gain by contaminating our better angels? The film revolves around hierarchy and how it corrupts any and all human beings involved with building and supporting the scaffolding of that structure.” — Todd Field

Field said. “(It’s) something we hear about, or experience first-hand from an early age. As Marin Alsop rightly points out, this is a narrative fact, but also a real obstacle if you want to examine the corrupting influence of power itself.”

Tár will be screened at 2 pm Saturday, June 3rd in the Pollock Theater on the UC Santa Barbara campus. Admission is free, but reservations are recommended.

For more information, go to www.carseywolf.ucsb.edu/pollock-events/big-screen-tar/

The fact Field made Tár a woman has been widely criticized. Conductor Marin Alsop called it a travesty to tar (as it were) female conductors in this way, when men are far more likely to engage in this sort of abusive behavior. Morgenstern said he understands the criticism, but also gets why Field made that counterintuitive choice.

“Why do we feel compelled to dominate and rank those within our sphere of influence?” he continued. “What does the animal part of us gain by contaminating our better angels? The film revolves around hierarchy and how it corrupts any and all human beings involved with building and supporting the scaffolding of that structure.”

“I don’t think it sneers at the fact that vibrant music cultures have grown up around the video-game industry, so I don’t think the film sees her working at that space as simple debasement. But I’m also not convinced that it redeems her in any real way. That would send the film down the Eat Pray Love path, where the Global South becomes a place of redemption for a troubled white person.”

If you saw the film but missed that particular thematic thread, join the club: It is largely absent from the voluminous online commentary and analysis. But Morgenstern argues it is in the film from literally beginning to end.

Disconcertingly, the movie opens with a quite lengthy title sequence. While name after name flashes onto the screen, the soundtrack features audio of a young, pre-fame-andfortune Tár doing ethnomusicological research in the Amazon rain forest.

“Having a male in the lead role would lead more people to see it exclusively as a #Metoo movie, which really localizes its analysis of power within a specific cultural context and historical moment,” he said. “By sidestepping that, he opens up a larger set of questions. I think it makes for a more interesting film. Elite institutions position and incentivize people to abuse their power in all kinds of ways. One’s particular identity does not necessarily guarantee insulation from those enticements.”

That’s exactly right, Field told the Current “We all know, or should know, how we feel about the men who hold and abuse power,”

In the film’s final scenes (spoiler alert!), Tár is back in the Global South — specifically somewhere in Southeast Asia, where, having lost her prestigious European position, she is conducting a young orchestra in a video-game score. Some commentators see this as her ultimate humiliation; others point to it as the delayed fulfillment of a piece of wisdom she once received from Leonard Bernstein, that the sole purpose of making music is for other people’s enjoyment.

“I have not been able to come down on either side of that debate, partly because I think both sides require of the film certain things that it does not seem interested in doing,” Morgenstern said.

Rather, in his view, “It puts her in a position where she, as a kind of avatar for Western cultural authority, is dislodged from her very sealed world, and suddenly finds herself among a totally new set of cultural poles. I think that’s more of a question about the shifting ground of cultural power than it is a final statement about Tár herself.”

Of course, there is no right or wrong answer, to this or any of the other questions the film poses. The debate continues, which is terrific as far as Field is concerned. “The level of engagement, and sense of agency and ownership from the individual viewer is thrilling,” he said.

Morgenstern fully agrees. “One of my biggest pet peeves is when movies overexplain,” he said. “I admire films that allow for ambiguity.” Printed

The Adderly School Celebrates 30 Years




as the Adderly School for the Performing Arts celebrated their 30th Anniversary on Saturday, May 27th at the Lobero Theatre. The remarkable evening showcased the dedication of both the faculty and school attendees and their commitment to the culture and creativity of American musical theatre, past and present.

Special guests included rockstar Kenny Loggins who, in a jam-packed, happy take on Loggin’s own Footloose, was accompanied by dozens of current Adderly School students. Other key attendees included the accomplished Tony awardwinning stage, film, and television producer Debra Martin

Chase (A Strange Loop, The Princess Diaries), and the founder of the school, actress Janet Adderly (Starlight Express). Other special guests included alums filmmaker John Alexander, actress Marissa Reyes, Tonywinning actor Ben Platt (Dear Evan Hansen), and Jack Dylan Grazer.

Happy to be there to greet the wellwishers, proud parents, and current and former students, the evening illustrated the success of Ms. Adderly's performing arts programs for kids and their positive impact on a young generation of performers.

“Providing world class performance and training opportunities for students with live musicians, professional sets, and exceptional guest Broadway directors and choreographers is an essential component of what Adderly has to offer children,” Adderly noted. “Our mission to expand our outreach to underresourced children is my most fervent focus.”

The witty emcee for the evening, actor and entertainment personality James Corden, opened the program, followed by Adderly students and guest performers. On stage the first impressive act included songs from Pippin, Oliver (forcefully sung by Maile Kai Merrick), Into the Woods, Grease, The Music Man (Trouble); climaxing with Footloose featuring Loggins and company. Act II offered songs from Cabaret, Chicago, Legally Blonde, West Side Story, My Name is Alice,  Les Misérables, and You Can’t Stop the Beat from Hairspray as the finale. Performers

included students from the Pacific Palisades branch, Santa Barbara, Austin, New Orleans and Connecticut, key places of Adderly’s reach across the country and a successful indicator of their widespread efforts. Commitment and energy were on full display as well as the polish and bravery of these young and budding performers in every chapter of the night’s musical scenes. The students were treated to multiple standing ovations for their professional displays of dancing and singing.

Sponsors included the school’s non-profit arm, The Adderly School Foundation, (TASF) which was established to expand access to the school in regard to their focus on after-school musical theater enrichment programs. Also on board were Stephen Sherill, The Shulte Family Foundation, Beverly Dale, Homer Montecito, and Laurie Robinson Hayden. Wines, for the adults, were provided by Babcock Winery and Vineyards, as well as the key players from Juice Consulting, a public relations firm from Austin, Texas. The pre-performance celebration was held at Intermezzo and the post-party behind the Lobero under the green festivity tent. www.theadderleyschool.org

We ask that you continue to support small businesses here in Santa Barbara, as they are the center of the community that connects all of us.”

TUESDAY, MAY 30TH: Stolen! The Santa Barbara City Parks department confirms the Burton Mound plaque at Ambassador Park has been stolen. It is California Historic Landmark No. 306.

Music Academy The Magic of Miraflores

Elegant Gala to Launch Summer Festival


GLASSES will sweep Music Academy gardens once again when its annual benefit gala kicks off this summer’s festival. The Magic of Miraflores, the June 3rd affair will present music aficionados the opportunity to mingle with Academy teaching artists and alumni before enjoying a star-studded concert by Metropolitan Opera star Michelle Bradley and the Sing! children’s choir.

“It’s warm, it’s welcoming — it was a place for me to grow and discover myself,” said soprano Michelle Bradley of her time as a Music Academy fellow. “It really was a life changing experience, one of the best summers of my life.”

Saturday’s gala, which is co-chaired by Mindy Budgor, Belle Hahn, and Lily Hahn, serves as a benefit for the Music Academy’s full scholarship program as well as its Sing! children’s choir programming.

“This year’s three dynamic cochairs represent the next generation of volunteer and philanthropic leadership for their respective families who have done so much for the Academy and the Santa Barbara community,” said Music Academy President and CEO Scott Reed. “We are the fortunate beneficiaries of their creativity, energy, and generosity.

Currently, 137 fellows from around the world are preparing to spend the summer in Montecito fine-tuning their musical skills with the Academy’s critically-acclaimed teaching artists.

Bradley, who participated in the 2014 Summer Festival, reminisced with VOICE Magazine about her time singing the third act of Verdi’s Aida at the Academy. She shared that the experience helped her realize her knack for acting — a talent that has proved her well on the Metropolitan Opera and Fort Worth Opera stages, where she recently starred in Aida’s title role.

She emphasized the Academy’s value as an institution that prepares fellows for a career in classical music today.

“I can speak as a professional a lot of opera houses are moving toward the contemporary and being innovative,” commented Bradley. “I think that the Music Academy will prepare students for this new opera era that we’re in, and of course, prepare them for the traditional as well.”

The Sing! children’s choir is a free program for first through sixth grade students in Santa Barbara County. Participating students have the opportunity to explore a range of cultures and historical periods through

Wagner, Verdi, and In the Wand of the Wind by Lee Hoiby. She will be joined by the Sing! children’s choir for a moving performance of We are the World

“We are the World incorporates what we need right now in the times that we’re in. Everyone seems so divided, and we can’t seem to work together when we absolutely can,” said Bradley. “I think this song will bring that forth, that we can be together no matter what our backgrounds are.”

Bradley added that she knew she had to sing We Are the World with the Sing! children after she first met the choir in February.

“I saw a lot of leaders, a lot of wonderful spirits,” she shared. “I’m inspired that there is a group of young people who are inspired by what I do... The opera world has a future, there are still young people who want to learn music, how to read music, how to sing.”

music, working with Academy faculty and guest artists such as the London Symphony Orchestra and the Young People’s Chorus of New York City. Sing! will also perform in the Academy’s July production of La bohème.

The Magic of Miraflores will unite community members in celebrating these two facets of the Academy’s educational programming. Upon entering, guests will stroll the Miraflores garden sipping cocktails and savoring hors d’oeuvres. All will then enjoy an outdoor, candlelit dinner before an intimate concert experience.

Bradley shared that she plans to sing a program of “happy tunes,” including

Gala attendees will also enjoy performances by pianists and Academy alumni Natasha Kislenko and Vassily Primakov. A faculty member at UC Santa Barbara and the Music Academy, Kislenko is an award-winning pianist who has played with orchestras internationally.

Academy devotees will remember Primakov from this past March’s concert devoted to teaching artist Jerome Lowenthal, where he passionately performed pieces by Franz Liszt. A cofounder of L.P. Classics, Inc., Primakov has cultivated a reputation as a master of Chopin and Mozart.

The Magic of Miraflores will also act as a celebration honoring Music Academy CEO & President Scott Reed,

CA Offshore Race Week Begins!

LAST WEEKEND’S MEMORIAL DAY CELEBRATIONS extended to the entire city of Santa Barbara and attracted visitors in droves. Along the waterfront the hotels, Stearns Wharf, beaches, and parking lots were filled to the brim. Navigating my way along the harbor walkway, I was able to watch the annual Memorial Day yacht race. Concurrently, the weekly Wet Wednesday races have been up and running despite the cloudy, sometimes very chilly weather. It seems that pesky fog layer, and the ominous looking clouds hugging the mountains, can’t get the clue that summer’s approaching and sunshine is mandated, especially for holiday weekends!

Looking forward to the challenges of winds and weather in the Channel outside of the breakwater, mariners (and their visitors!) have remained undaunted by clouds and sunshine as an even more ambitious racing calendar in and around the Santa Barbara harbor begins this week. Once again the Yacht Club is co-hosting the 2023 California Offshore Race Week beginning in San Francisco on Saturday, May 27th and ending on Saturday, June 3rd in San Diego. The Race Week has been a premier offshore California regatta series since 2015 and consists of three different races combined under one heading: the Spinnaker Cup from San Francisco to Monterey, the Coastal Cup from Monterey to Santa Barbara, and the SoCal 300 from Santa Barbara to San Diego.

This huge California Offshore Race attracts some of the best and fastest boats not only from our shores but nationwide, many of whom compete in other challenging races such as the Transpacific Race to Hawaii. After seeing the popularity of the SoCal 300, there was growing interest in including the Spinnaker and Coastal Cups, combining all three races under one umbrella to be held in sequence in one intense week of sailing down the coast, now known as the California Offshore Race Week.

The prestigious race also includes the CA 500 designed for larger faster boats with a course from San Francisco to San Diego. Indeed, it is a bucket list trek starting in San Francisco, stopping in picturesque Monterey Bay and Santa Barbara and concluding in San Diego.

For sailors wanting to limit their adventure and stay closer to home, each of the individual events will still provide plenty of offshore adventure plus a trophy for each. The Race Week’s steering committee consists of representatives from the Monterey Peninsula Yacht Club, the Encinal Yacht Club, as well as the Santa Barbara and San Diego Yacht Clubs. The 2023 steering committee will include Santa Barbara Yacht Club Race Director Brad Schaupeter and Staff Commodore Bill Guilfoyle, Coastal Cup & So Cal 300 Co-chair.

For those racing fans and fellow mariners wishing to view the start of the Santa Barbara based So Cal 300 Race from our shores, the view is best from Stearns Wharf and the harbor breakwater.

Again, the date is Thursday, June 1st and the ETD is 1pm. This race officially serves to end the Offshore Race Week three days later in San Diego where a celebration is to take place.

Sadly, I won’t be joining this year’s big sendoff as I am going out of town for a few weeks. You all will have to be at the start of this race for me! So, head on down to the harbor for some good fun! And stay tuned ...

The Theatre Group at SBCC Reveals 2023-2024 Season

STEALING THE SPOTLIGHT with swashbuckling pirates, mischievous matchmaking, and New York City’s underground 1950s gambling scene, The Theatre Group at Santa Barbara City College has announced its 2023-2024 season. A shift from this past year’s successful focus on comedy, the upcoming season embraces theater’s power to reimagine well-loved stories with a line-up spanning Guys and Dolls, Emma, Treasure Island, and The Outsider

“I feel that audiences should be transported to another perspective, another country, another time period, another possibility of romance, adventure, and excitement,” said Katie Laris, SBCC Theatre Arts Department Co-Chair and stage director. “That they emerge feeling like they’ve been in another place where they forgot their day-to-day and saw something they hadn’t ever experienced before.”

Running October 13th through the 28th, this fourth wall-breaking work promises a “fresh feminist take on a treasured classic.”

A more dramatic reinterpretation will emerge with the Theatre Group’s Treasure Island, in which the adventurous Jim Hawkins is a girl. Adapted by Bryony Lavery and premiered at London’s National Theatre, the play brings Robert Louis Stevenson’s book of pirates and riches to life with a heroine as the lead. It will run March 1st through 16th.

Safari Local

The Theatre Group invites all actors, regardless of SBCC student status, to audition for their productions. This contributes to each production’s joyful, community-focused atmosphere, with exclamations of surprise and support often heard as audience members spot familiar faces onstage.

“The book is almost completely guys, so one of the things the adapter wanted to do was to center a young woman,” explained Laris. “It’s a version that’s really exciting, it’s very physicalized. There’s an experimental theater quality to it because the actors are really creating the sense of the boat, ocean, and the island.”

Guys and Dolls kicks off the season with a classic musical rom-com, following Nathan Detroit as he tries to organize a high-rolling crap game while under heat from the police. Desperate for dough, Detroit makes a bet: that Sky Masterson, a suave gambler, will fail to take the pious missionary Sarah Brown on a date. With Nick Ehlen and KEYT’s Anikka Abbott set to play this unlikely couple, musical sparks should fly. Performances will run July 14th through 29th.

Actividades en persona y en línea para todos BILINGUAL / BILINGÜE

Unexpected matchmaking will continue in a fall production of playwright Katie Hamill’s interpretation of Emma. Jane Austen’s masterpiece, the lighthearted romance follows the titular Emma as she tries to pair off her friends — inadvertently finding love for herself along the way.

Safari Local

The Outsider concludes the season with its political comedy. Reminiscent of Mr. Smith Goes to Washington, the play chronicles the struggles of Ned Newley, who is appointed governor despite being afraid of public speaking. Audiences are left with an entertaining look at the clashes between public perception and actual proficiency in politics.

“It’s a piece that in an age of cynicism is really about optimism, how we can all come together to actually get things done in politics,” said Laris.

Season tickets are now available online. Single performance tickets will be available on June 20th. Visit www.theatregroupsbcc.com

Economic Life Signs Improving

AFTER A SPUTTERING START, it looks like the U.S. economy is picking up steam. First Quarter GDP growth was revised upward from 1.1 to 1.3 percent in the BEA’s second estimate yesterday.

And the Personal Consumption Expenditure Index (PCE) out Friday, the Fed’s favorite inflation indicator, shows consumer spending is the main engine of growth. The PCE is the best measure of consumer behavior, and rather than pulling back because of higher inflation and interest rates, spending is keeping up with inflation.

Economic VOICE

The result won’t make our Federal Reserve Governors happy who have been hinting at the possibility of a rate pause in June, since the PCE inflation index ticked up from 4.2 to 4.4 percent YoY.

Compound this with predictions of up to 2.9 percent GDP growth in Q2, and we could be off to a ‘roaring’ 2023 year and decade that I’ve been touting.

The revised Q1 GDP number was buoyed by consumer spending as well. PCE data also showed consumer spending sprang back to life in April, rising 0.8%, the largest gain in three months, “surpassing expectations for a 0.5% increase as Americans bought more cars and spent more on services,” said a MarketWatch commentator. Why not, when fully employed and feeling more secure about their prospects?

Within services, the largest contributors to the PCE increase were spending for financial services and insurance, health care, and “other” services (notably professional and other services). Within goods, spending for motor vehicles and parts (led by new motor vehicles) and “other” nondurable goods (notably pharmaceutical products) were the largest contributors to the increase.

And lastly, orders for U.S. manufactured goods jumped 1.1 percent in April largely because of the military, but business investment also rose sharply in a positive sign for the economy. Manufacturing output has been shrinking in the last six


In a good sign, business investment rose a sharp 1.4 percent. What are corporations seeing that induces them to invest more? They are also expecting economic growth to improve.

The latest results show that consumers are in a tug-ofwar with the Fed, which has been outspoken in its efforts to slow consumer spending with boosts to credit card and installment loan interest rates.

Yet Americans remained worried about the future of the economy, especially against the backdrop of another fight in Washington over the debt ceiling.

The University of Michigan sentiment survey final reading in May rebounded slightly to 59.2 from earlier in the month but was still lower than April’s 63.5 final reading.

“Consumer sentiment slid seven percent amid worries about the path of the economy, erasing nearly half of the gains achieved after the all-time historic low from last June. This decline mirrors the 2011 debt ceiling crisis, during which sentiment also plunged,” said survey Director Joanne Hsu.

But they can’t be but so worried as the post-pandemic surge in prosperity seems to more than cancel out such bad news.

‘Keep calm!’ The economy stays steady despite inflation and the impacts of remote work

still relatively high.



in 1929, there have been dozens of adverse events that have threatened to cripple the U.S. economy, including wars, recessions, and government shutdowns. And to be sure, the economy has taken some big hits, especially during the pandemic. But overall, it trends in a positive direction.

“Our economy is tough,” said Peter Rupert, a professor of economics at UC Santa Barbara and director of the university’s Economic Forecast Project (EFP). “That’s why I say, ‘Keep calm!’”

Rupert was speaking to a crowd of several hundred gathered in downtown Santa Barbara for the EFP’s annual South County Economic Summit, where early chatter in the lobby of the Granada Theatre centered around inflation. This year, the summit brought in Christopher Waller, who sits on the Federal Reserve Board of Governors, to offer the Federal Reserve’s broader perspective on the economy, particularly inflation.

Waller emphasized that the unemployment rate — now at 3.4 percent — is the lowest it’s been since 1969. Gross domestic product (GDP), retail sales, and hourly earnings continue trending upward. Our banking system overall, he said, is “sound and resilient.” But he also acknowledged that he was “concerned about the lack of progress on inflation,” with food prices and rents, among other indicators,

Currently, inflation is running around five percent, the highest it’s been since the late ’70s and early ’80s. Waller said the Federal Reserve’s target is to stabilize inflation at two percent.

“The tool the Fed (Federal Reserve) uses is the federal funds rate, an overnight rate that banks charge to one another for loans,” explained Rupert, who’s been with UCSB’s Department of Economics since 2007. “Higher rates lead to fewer loans and, in their view, slows the economy.”

Waller concluded by saying that the Federal Reserve will review updated numbers concerning the labor market and consumer pricing, expected to arrive in the coming weeks, before deciding on a potential interest rate hike this summer.

Case Study: City by the Bay

As the national economy as a whole rebounds from the pandemic to realign with overall upward trends, not all is well in the Golden State. In particular, San Francisco can provide a cautionary tale.

“We’re not heading toward a Detroit situation,” said Ted Egan, the chief economist for the city and county of San Francisco for the past 16 years. “But the next five to ten years are going to be rough.”

Over the past two years, San Francisco has lost upward of eight percent of its population, the biggest drop in any city nationwide. Former residents have left town. Many tourists are staying away. And with the massive increase in remote work, especially in the technology sector, downtown office buildings remain all but empty.

“The pandemic showed that you don’t need occupied offices,” Egan said, adding that the office industry

— which encompasses transportation, food services, retail, and development, among other factors that fuel a city’s economy — generated 80% of San Francisco’s GDP. Fortunately, he added, there is no sign that tech workers are leaving the region, “they’re just working from home.”

Among other issues, the city must weigh the prospect of raising taxes to compensate for the drop in business-tax income as employees work remotely, and how to tackle the perception that city streets are overwhelmed by poverty and homelessness.

“San Francisco does not seem to be an outlier,” Rupert said. “It just happened a lot faster due to the predominance of the tech sector and remote work. LA is now seeing problems in the office market.”

It’s too soon to tell how widespread remote working might impact the economy, Rupert noted. “But it is extremely likely that working arrangements will look different than the prepandemic allocation.”

Mixed-Up is on view through June 17th • Open 10am to 4pm Mo-Fr, 11am to 5pm Sa • Westmont College, Montecito


Tri-County Juried Exhibition

WELCOME TO MIXED-UP, where saddles rest in trees, lampshades house birds, and busy cafes serve eager and reflective customers. Currently on display at the Westmont Ridley-Tree Museum of Art, the gallery’s annual Tri-County Juried Exhibition is an eclectic celebration of local imagination and talent, inviting viewers to look at familiar vistas ever-sodifferently.

“To me, the theme ‘Mixed Up’ suggests a blending, merging, or juxtaposition of different elements, ideas, or perspectives,” explained Bay Area artist Rae Dunn, the show’s juror. “It also implies a departure from traditional norms or expectations and encourages the exploration of unconventional combinations.”

A ceramist with a nationwide line of household items, Dunn is known for her minimalist, whimsical style. She is also an author, most recently publishing the interactive guidebook In Pursuit of Inspiration: Trust Your Instincts and Make More Art Dunn received hundreds of submissions for Westmont’s Mixed-Up exhibition. In reviewing pieces across styles, subjects, and mediums, she aimed to highlight those works that evoked inspiration, strong emotions, and thought.

Intimate vignettes group the gallery’s 50 works. Monochromatic pieces border the entryway walls, beckoning viewers to examine grayscale patterns, a carved tablet, and the exhibition’s Best in Show, Terminal Basins by Caroline Kapp. Composed of tone cyanotypes, the photograph depicts a rock patterned with circles reminiscent of a fingerprint, or ripples in a pond.

“Each viewing made me want to understand it more but there’s a mystery to it that won’t allow me to fully understand it, which I love,” commented Dunn.

Colors envelop the main gallery space, with bold pops of blue, green, and purple punctuating its hanging canvases. Portraits range from the overtly surreal, such as Gary Silverstein’s I See U, to the quietly introspective, such as the pensive gentleman of Polly Griscom’s Reflections. The overarching theme begs viewers to examine the subjects’ faces closer, asking what they may be thinking.

Juxtapositions of subject and movement carry through the exhibition’s landscapes and still lifes. Several works observe human impacts on the environment, such as skies streaked with airplane trails and a washed-up tire being bathed by ocean surf. These complement the exhibition’s still lifes of human objects engaging in abnormal behavior, including Is It Love?

by Cody Cammbell — showing two handheld phones spooning on an unmade bed.

Other artists depict “mixed-up” pairings, such as Amanda Colacchia’s Dragon Avocados, depicting dragon fruit and avocado, and Melinda

Mettler’s G&T

Viewers are left with a vibrant glimpse into the tri-county area’s enormous pool of talent that sparks appreciation and admiration.

“One thing that can be difficult while viewing art in a crowded exhibition is to have the adequate time and space to really view each piece and let it resonate with you,” shared Dunn. “My hope is that viewers won’t rush through the show and instead be able to absorb each piece more fully. I find when I slow down, that’s when I discover those stronger emotions and can be more inspired by those pieces that I really connect with.”

Santa Barbara Junior High School Celebrates 90th Graduating Class with New Mural


commemorating its 90th graduating class. SBJH opened its doors in 1932 as the first junior high school in the City of Santa Barbara.

The following year, artisans from the Works Progress Administration added the Marjorie Luke Theater.

To keep in the theme of the school’s mascot, the Condors, the mural highlights what makes students soar.

The artwork features feathers created by students and

staff that include decorations on the front and a statement about what makes them soar on the back.

School leaders unveiled the new mural during an event on Thursday, May 25th.

The entire project was spearheaded by SBJH English teacher and Emergent Multilingual Learner lead PJ Carmean.

Carmean applied for and was awarded a $3,000 grant from the Santa Barbara Education Foundation to fund the project.

In collaboration with SBJH art teacher Darren Iacono and SBJH woodshop teacher Michael Nott, 650+ feathers were applied to wooden backing and affixed to SBJH’s new Multipurpose Building.

“This mural reminds us that when we combine our diversity and differences, it creates something beautiful,” shared Carmean in her remarks at the unveiling.

Iacono’s and Nott’s students also helped with the project. In true community fashion, four former SBJH (and current SBHS) students spent many hours after school assisting Iacono and Nott with the final product.

“What I love most about this project is that it was both community-inspired and community-created; it brought the entire school together,” said SBJH Principal Dan Dupont.

“SBJH is truly proud of the community effort it took to bring this project to fruition. We’re excited that generations of future Condors will be able to benefit from this collaborative project.”

Superintendent Dr. Hilda Maldonado noted, “I want to thank everyone who contributed to this project that celebrates the vibrant Condor Community. SBJH educators have inspired nine decades of scientists, engineers, writers, artists, athletes, and more. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for the school in the next 90 years.”

Santa Barbara Junior High School’s 90th graduation will take place on June 8th.
