UCSB Arts & Lectures

Brings Movies Back to the Sunken Gardens


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

CONIC DANCE NUMBERS, THE QUIRKY WORLD OF WES ANDERSON, WACKY ROAD TRIPS, AND MORE WILL BE SCREENED UNDER THE STARS when UCSB Arts & Lectures returns its free Summer Cinema series to the Santa Barbara Dirty Dancing hits the screen July 15th Courthouse Sunken Gardens. With a Hot Fun in the Summertime theme, the vibrant line-up offers well-loved favorites like Dirty Dancing and Thelma and Louise as well as lesser-known gems and modern releases, offering something for all community members. Films will be shown at 8:30pm on Fridays from July 8th through August 26th, except for Friday, August 5th to leave the Sunken Gardens available for Old Spanish Days Fiesta.

“We just thought, what are some quintessential summer movies?” explained Arts & Lectures Associate Director Meghan Bush, who determined this summer’s films along with the organization’s programming team. “Some buddy movies, some road trip movies, summer camp, summer themes, things that will make people want to gather and really share in the nostalgia of not just summertime, but summer films and really just the nostalgia of this particular event.” This marks the 13th year UCSB Arts & Lectures has hosted free Summer Cinema, inviting movie lovers of all ages to gather at the Sunken Gardens to view movies centering on fun themes, such as James Bond films, Alfred Hitchcock, and ‘80s and ‘90s throwbacks. When the pandemic hit, the organization continued to prioritize this community aspect by moving screenings to West Wind Drive-In so people could safely enjoy films with others.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle screens August 19th

Now, Arts & Lectures and the community at large are eager to return to the event’s home at the Sunken Gardens. “Here’s what you can’t do with Netflix — you can’t share that experience with 4,000 other people; you can’t hear the universal ‘ahhs,’ and sighs, and applause, and cheers; and there’s something about the momentum of that group of people all sharing a moment that can be really magical,” said Bush. “It’s not just about the art of cinema, it’s about the sort of shared experience and catharsis that everybody has together that really makes it a fully rounded, artistic experience.” Moonrise Kingdom screens August 12th

In planning this year’s Hot Fun in the Summertime, Arts & Lectures aimed to not only choose films that embody summer, but highlight diversity by including characters of different genders, sexualities, races and ethnicities, and backgrounds. The schedule also features films that will appeal to a broad range of ages, from those better suited for adult audiences to family-friendly choices.

The series kicks off with American Graffiti on July 8th, centering on the last night of summer vacation in 1962. Locals can then have the “time of their lives” with the coming-of-age romance Dirty Dancing on July 15th. Next, Thelma and Louise will follow two best friends as they run from the law on July 22nd.

American Graffiti screens July 8th

Another cinematic road trip — this time featuring drag queens and a bright bus — embarks on July 29th with The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Then, two young lovers have a wild adventure in Moonrise Kingdom on August 12th. The treacherous world of Jumanji is re-imagined as a video game in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle on August 19th. Finally, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s hit musical In the Heights will have viewers dancing on the courthouse lawn on August 26th. Filmgoers can start setting up their viewing spaces at noon on the day of each screening, and are asked to only use permeable blankets and low-to-the-ground chairs.

In the Heights will screen August 26th

There will also be pre-screening festivities before each film, including music by DJ Darla Bea and other to-beannounced highlights. To encourage attendees to support local businesses and restaurants, there will be no food trucks by the courthouse. UCSB students will also be able to view each week’s film at student-exclusive screenings on Wednesday evenings at Campbell Hall. Premiere sponsor: Montecito Bank & Trust. Additional sponsor: Union Bank. Media sponsors: KCSB-FM 91.9, K-LITE 101.7, Santa Barbara Independent, and VOICE Magazine.

Ensemble Theatre Company

Anthony Shaffer’s Sleuth –

Photo by Zach Mendez

Virginia Woolf on steroids

Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE


ITH ITS PSYCHOLOGICAL EVISCERATION AND INSULTS, Sleuth, English playwright Anthony Shaffer’s 1970 two-person narrative study is winding down Ensemble Theatre Company’s 42nd season. Running through June 26th at the New Vic with Jenny Sullivan at the directorial helm, the playwright’s raw verbal acid reflux between the play’s two protagonists serves as both main course and punishing subtext for a dark pugilistic journey toward mutual extermination, hosted with stone-faced analytic honesty by Sullivan. Fun and games, puzzles, platitudes - all viddy-viddy English - are for keeps and have deadly consequence in Sullivan’s clear-eyed understanding of the play. Wading unblinkingly into a vitriolic and ultimately murderous fray, laughter happens, but Sullivan makes sure we squirm. Anthony Shaffer (1926-2001) whose tombstone reads, ‘Grand Artificer of Mysteries,’ was a lot of things, including screenwriter, novelist, lawyer, and playwright. His keenest focus: detective stories – especially those of the Deus ex machina sort. Sleuth won the Tony for Best Broadway Play in 1970 and has stayed before the public for over 50 years, with three film versions in 1972, 2007, and 2014. Michael Caine immortalized the role of Milo Tindle on the screen, making Sleuth Shaffer’s most successful artistic statement. The tricky bit, like Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, a couple generations of movie viewers, let alone play goers, know already, how it’s going to turn out. For American audiences, understanding Brit-speak can be a

problem. It’s an English play, the situations are ridiculously English. Words, so many coy and clever words, need to be expressed, well, Englishly, as a former American president might put it. Daniel Gerroll, as the ultra-snobbish, culturally passé narcissist of the English mystery novel genre circa 1940, Andrew Wyke, is English himself. Helpful, considering his are the most convoluted, wickedly sarcastic, and evil-purposed word mashes of the evening. Think Virginia Woolf’s notoriously scathing barbs, then twist the garrot tighter. Tone, inflection, pause and parry – all crucial to the verbal swordplay, were in fine, frothy order when I saw Sleuth on June 14th. Gerroll, a veteran of over 30 productions on and off Broadway, let alone his continuing engagements throughout North America, London, and the planet in general, enjoyed excellent, finely-honed inflection, the pungency of his character’s frothy pronouncements and heady South London-revealing epithets, spot-on. Gerroll gave us an upper caste wanna-be characterization of Wyke, who when the pressure’s on, fails to impress. Subtle, brilliant! Veteran American actor, Matthew Floyd Miller, assuming the role of Milo Tindle, the handsome and fresh lover of old man Wyke’s wife, managed his English accent more than admirably. Kudos, dramaturgist, Anna Jensen. Shaffer’s Tindle represents modernity, egalitarianism, free choice. Tindle is therefore a direct threat (sound

familiar?) to Wyke’s shrinking world of perceived exceptionalism, made the more irrelevant by caste-crossing cuckoldry. Wyke is out for blood, his complicated faux and real murder plot, a set-up for instant karma. While Daniel Gerroll’s Wyke is allowed by the playwright but one, rigid persona, Tindle is given a riot of personality interest, and costumery affectation. Tindle’s spectrum is all bright color, and however misdirected, happy expectation. Wyke’s dull tweeds reveal the disparate diaspora between the two. Even Wyke’s red smoking jacket is boring, outdated. The contrast between the two characters, their psyches, their “class struggle” truths ultimately revealed as sham, is the brilliant visual work of Dianne K. Graebner’s costume design. Brava! Fred Kinney’s scenic challenge was to create a gasp-worthy, if completely static set; the massive drawing room of mystery writer Andrew Wyke’s posh country estate. Mission accomplished on the New Vic stage, with a two-story structure, reeling in purgatorial Tudoresque ornate hardwood walls, symbols perhaps of Wyke’s Medieval intentions and antique tastes. Fitted out by property designer, John M. McElveney, the set basked unashamedly in a shoddy-chic collection of pre-blitz to mid-century furniture relics, en suite with sundry gameboard puzzles, disturbing robots, and other fetishistic objects, including a gun and blanks. Sprinkled like IED’s on the road to Baghdad, loaded with explosive clues to the play’s raw underbelly, the set and set pieces became a Jungian minefield. Satisfying. An off-stage aural tour de theatre by actors Doug Ralston (Detective Sergeant Tarrant) and Charles Patrick (Constable Higgs) worked admirably. Speaking of puzzlements though, I’m still wondering about Cornelius Patrick’s role as inspector Doppler. Was he ever on stage? Did poor Matthew Floyd Miller have to languish backstage in full doppelganger drag until some magical theatrical switch for the reveal? One man in his time does indeed, play many parts. Daniel Kepl has been writing music, theatre, and dance reviews or Santa Barbara publications since he was a teenager. His professional expertise is as an orchestra conductor.

Dirty Streets,

Ugly Planters –


Two Years On!

ANTA BARBARA IS AN ARCHITECTURAL GEM for locals and visitors alike. But for the past several years, the community has been appalled at downtown Santa Barbara’s gummy, grimy streets, smell of urine, and the cheap, careless look of our sensational downtown. The City’s response has been piecemeal together, disorganized, and unsuccessful. Decades of planning were thrown out the window when the city’s transportation department put together some oversized planters, plastic bollards, and painted a double wide freeway for bikes in the middle of State Street without conferring with the Historic Landmarks Committee, Architectural Board of Review, the Planning Commission, Arts Advisory Committee (all made up of citizen representatives), or even the landscape architect that designed the Downtown State Street Plaza. Some of the necessary modifications for the Promenade work, but, for more than two years nothing has changed about the city’s haphazard “implementation design.” With the city’s budget passed, the time is now to make your opinions known to the Ad Hoc State Street Committee. The key corners that connect the State Street Promenade and the side streets need to be beautiful and welcoming. There have been some recent steps to address

Many private business have provided landscaping and perked up tree wells.

a significant build-up of grime, but organization and results are lacking. The city has purchased Zambonitype street cleaners and has been saying for months that they will pick up the pace of cleaning, including side streets and sidewalks, which have not been cleaned in years. The sidewalks smell of urine and are sticky. The police department is working with a social worker, and they have purchased more bikes and added more street patrols - which have helped significantly with serving people experiencing homelessness. But for clean up, even volunteers such as The Downtown Organization and the South Coast Chamber have hosted just three clean up days in two years, and these citizen-powered volunteer days do little more than pick up trash. Deep dive cleaning, complete with the required water reclamation, needs to be done by the city - and it isn’t being done in any adequate way. Attention also must be paid to the nearly 1,000 empty tree wells in the downtown area. There is much that should be done regarding transportation and parking issues in the area. There is currently a confusion of approaches, none helpful. Public access to and from the beach by way of a shuttle has ceased. It was the victim of a budget cut of $1.3 million over two years ago. Alternative routes, like alternative parade routes that the city required of other organizations, have not been implemented and the cost to businesses and tax payers alike is significant. Traffic circulation has been reviewed, but the 400 and 1300 blocks of State Street have cars and traffic patterns that are unsettled, and parking and curb paint have not been adjusted even-handedly or to satisfaction yet. The Community Development Department, with dozens of planners, hopefully could improve traffic circulation and parking, as well as change the curb colors and lengths to fit the new corners. Implementation of calming devices to slow bicycles’ downhill racing speeds, would also be helpful. Looking forward, it’s important to note that every block of State Street is its own neighborhood and has a distinct vibe. They need to be viewed as the unique entities they are. Any planned activations and safety issues need to be addressed block by block, with unique answers that match and support the individual needs and energies of that block. There is a good deal of promise for the new Promenade with plenty of examples of individual owners, like La Arcada, which have added beautiful landscaping to our cityscape. More can be done by private owners and

non-profits like Santa Barbara Beautiful, which grants money for tree replacements for the city. The broader business community has sent emails and spoken out about this at both Downtown Organization meetings and Chamber meetings to no avail, so far. Currently, the State Street Ad Hoc committee, composed of council members Mike Jordan, Oscar Gutierrez, and Kristen Sneddon, instead of the State Street Master Plan Committee, has been designated caretakers of the interim needs of State Street. They have been faithfully walking the streets and talking compliance and soliciting ideas. However, they have also considered putting cars on more blocks, despite the outcry of the business community to keep streets closed. Also, opening State Street to cars at this point would lead to dangers caused by unpredictability. The Ad Hoc State Street Committee will be offering their ideas (and hopefully reflecting the community’s sense and feelings about the interim process and progress) to the City Council on June 28th. Now is your opportunity to contact them with your thoughts and ideas. Email them today!

Bookworm Corner: Prince & Knight

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



In 2019, Prince & Knight was ranked as the fifth most-challenged book by the American Library Association, with all challenges and restrictions made based on the book’s positive portrayal of a LGBTQ+ relationship and marriage. As Pride Month comes to a close, this book, along with countless others, remain worthy of protection and amplification to support a more accepting, inclusive future.

DELIGHTFUL, INCLUSIVE TWIST ON TRADITIONAL “KNIGHT IN SHINING ARMOR” FAIRY TALES, Prince & Knight by Daniel Haack and illustrated by Stevie Lewis shows that living “happily ever after” is for everyone. Published in 2018, the picture book follows the titular prince as his parents attempt to find him a princess to marry. However, the prince is not interested in any of the princesses he meets. When a dragon attacks his kingdom, the prince rushes to the rescue — only to discover a knight preparing to battle the beast as well. The pair fall in love and decide to marry, much to the joy of the prince’s parents and the kingdom. With its rhyming text, adorable illustrations, and messages of inclusivity, Prince & Knight represents the LGBTQ+ community in a heartwarming, direct manner. For children with parents or family members who are part of the LGBTQ+ community, the book is a welcome opportunity to see their loved ones included in a fairytale. For other young readers, the book sparks greater awareness and understanding that people can love whomever they wish.

Home Sales Returning to Normal


By Harlan Green, Special to VOICE

HE HOME SALES FRENZY that has prevailed since COVID and rock bottom interest rates is finally subsiding.

Existing-home sales retreated for the fourth consecutive month in May, according to the National Association of REALTORS®. Month-over-month sales declined in three out of four major U.S. regions, while year-over-year sales slipped in all four regions. This is slowing rising prices, though the national median price just topped $400,000 for singlefamily homes, up 15 percent in a year. But it also means annual sales are returning to the range that prevailed since the Great Recession in 2007, as can be seen in Calculated Risk’s above graph. Calculated Risk’s Bill McBride predicts that housing supplies will increase this year because a record number of homes will be completed due to a record number of housing units under construction—some 1.7 million residential units.

“Supply constraints have lengthened the time from start to completion. We can see the impact of supply constraints by looking at the gap between single family starts and completions. It usually only takes about six months between starting a single-family home and completion, but it has taken longer during the pandemic,” said McBride. Total existing-home sales (https://www.nar.realtor/existing-home-sales), completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, fell 3.4 percent from April to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.41 million in May. Year-over-year, sales receded 8.6 percent (5.92 million in May 2021).

“Home sales have essentially returned to the levels seen in 2019 – prior to the pandemic – after two years of gangbuster performance,” said NAR Chief Economist Lawrence Yun. “Also, the market movements of single-family and condominium sales are nearly equal, possibly implying that the preference towards suburban living over city life that had been present over the past two years is fading with a return to pre-pandemic conditions.”





















































Total housing inventory registered at the end of May was 1,160,000 units, an increase of 12.6 percent from April and a 4.1 percent decline from the previous year (1.21 million). Unsold inventory sits at a 2.6-month supply at the current sales pace, up from 2.2 months in April and 2.5 months in May 2021.

























The problem is that first-time buyers have an even more difficult time in purchasing, hence the surge in apartment construction. First-time buyers were responsible for 27 percent of sales in May, down from 28 percent in April and down from 31 percent in May 2021. NAR’s 2021 Profile of Home Buyers and Sellers – released in late 2021 – reported that the annual share of first-time buyers was 34 percent. In fact, first-timers have made up to 40 percent of purchases when interest rates were lower, so will now have to wait for either a change in zoning laws that allows a greater housing density near transportation hubs, something that communities should encourage that want to attract more working folk to their towns, or the next time interest rates begin to decline.

Spike in Gray Whale Strandings Declared ‘Unusual Mortality Event’


N INCREASE IN STRANDED GRAY WHALE DEATHS on the West Coast, over the past four years, has initiated a federal investigation and a NOAA declaration of an “Unusual Mortality Event.” While there is not a definite answer as to why the increase in strandings have occurred, it has been observed that the gray whales found stranded are emaciated and the cow-calf pair numbers are lower than historical records, according to project coordinator of Gray Whales Count, Andrea Dransfield.

“In 2019 and years prior, we estimated there to be 27,000 gray whales in the eastern Pacific population and current estimates are at about 20 to 21,000, so there’s been a significant decrease in these last few years,” said Diane Alps, Large Whale Stranding Coordinator of Channel Islands Cetacean Research Unit. Surveying the northbound migration of gray whales through the Santa Barbara Channel, Gray Whales Count previously counted the number of gray whales in Santa Barbara annually. In 2020, they stopped the count due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the original founder of the

Cow-calf pair

organization’s retirement. According to Dransfield, the organization is regrouping and working on new grants in hopes of starting the count again next season. Gray whale strandings were the highest in 2019, according to NOAA Fisheries, with 122 strandings along the West Coast. In 2022, this number dropped to 23 strandings. The fact that the number of gray whale strandings along the West Coast is declining is hopeful, however, they are still occurring within an an abnormally high range. The Unusual Mortality Event that was declared in 2019 allows the federal government to allocate funds to investigate the cause, thereby giving

support to organizations such as CICRU and Gray Whales Count. This support will hopefully allow for the continuation of gray whale counts along the Santa Barbara Channel, as well as further the study of West Coast gray whale strandings.

Santa Barbara Residents Receive Appointments as Dame and Knight


Mental Health Arts Festival to Showcase Local Artists

MANDA PAYATT WAS NAMED DAME OF THE ORDER OF ST. MICHAEL of the Wing from His Royal Highness, Dom Duarte Pio, Duke of Braganza, head of the Royal House of Portugal, at a ceremony held at Princeton, New Jersey earlier this month. She was joined by Richard Payatt, who was named a Knight of the same order. The Payatts are Santa Barbara residents and long time writers and authors, including serving as Voice Magazine Food and Wine Columnists.


“It was a great honor to receive these appointments. One does goods work not for fame or glory, but because the work needs to be done. People need help, and we had the ability to help make things happen,” commented Richard Payatt. “We never expected that anyone would ever notice what we did... What a delight to receive these honors.”

Held from 11am to 3pm on Saturday, July 16th, styles and art forms will span painting, drawing, jewelry, poetry, sculpture, and general arts and crafts.

Festivities included a black tie dinner at Princeton University

The Payatts received these accolades in appreciation for their over 20 years performing volunteer hospital work around the world, helping WWII veterans, leprosy patients, and patients needing sophisticated eye operations.

JOYFUL CELEBRATION OF CREATIVITY AND POSITIVITY, the Mental Wellness Center will showcase a broad range of local artists at its 26th annual Mental Health Arts Festival at De La Guerra Plaza.

“It’s an opportunity for artists to display their work and showcase their talent to the community in a way that is positive, productive, and meaningful for them,” said Darcy Keep, MWC Board Members and Administrative Director of Psychiatry and Addiction Medicine at Cottage Health.

2022 Mental Health Arts Festival poster by Kristine Kelly

The Order of St. Michael of the Wing is currently assisting refugees in the Ukraine. The Order also purchased a monastery a few years ago as a center for soldiers with PTSD. The monastery is currently housing over 200 refugees as they seek permanent housing arrangements.

The 2022 featured festival artist is Kristine Kelly, who will share her fused glass artwork, which largely depicts nature scenes. Recently, Kelly’s art depicting Yosemite Valley won first place at the National Glass Expo held in Las Vegas. She designed the 2022 Art Festival poster, creating an underwater scene from her glass artwork.

Amanda and Richard also recently received knighthood/damehood in the Order of the Amarante, which is under the Royal House of Sweden. The Order of the Amarante is likewise assisting Ukrainian refugees, helping many to fly from refugee centers in Poland to a new life in Canada.

“Most of these artists have been exhibiting for years and years,” added Keep. “We also get new artists who are members of the Mental Wellness Center’s Fellowship Club. The Center has an art room and members who start creating want to display their artwork.” To learn more visit www.mentalwellnesscenter.org

Tree-of-the-Month, June 2022:

Guadalupe Palm Brahea edulis


By David Gress / Special to VOICE

June 24, 2022 After the flowers are pollinated, the inflorescences become decorative dangling stalks that are covered with round fruits (one inch in diameter). When new, the fruit is green - gradually turning yellow – and then, when ripe, turning black; the ripe fruit clusters often resemble bunches of grapes. Oddly enough, it can take two years for the fruit to ripen. The long wait will be rewarded with edible, semi-sweet, palm fruits that can be eaten directly or, more commonly, used to make preserves and jelly. The seeds can easily be used for propagation, taking up to six months to germinate. The botanical name for Guadalupe Palm is Brahea edulis. The genus name, Brahea, honors the Danish astronomer, Tycho Brahe (1546-1601). The specific epithet name, edulis, is derived from the Late Latin word, “edibilis”, meaning “edible”, referring to the fruit. The versatile Guadalupe Palm can grow anywhere in our community and in practically any soil type. However, it does not do well in wet conditions or with poor drainage. Once established, it is drought resistant. It can grow in full sun to partial shade. It will withstand both coastal saltspray and high heat. It tolerates windy locations, but does look lusher when given some wind protection. It is cold hardy to 18 degrees F. In addition, it is apparently not susceptible to any insect pests or diseases. Guadalupe Palm can be planted as a fine individual specimen – or in groups of three or more for visual impact – or in formal rows along borders or driveways. It is such a good choice for so many of our varied landscapes that it really should be planted here more frequently. Guadalupe Palm can be found all around town but most are seen in the green spaces along our waterfront and harbor, where it is mixed with other types of palms (primarily Mexican Fan Palms). Mature specimens stand at the County Court House (Figueroa Street side), in East Alameda Park, in Franceschi Park (east side), as a street tree in front of 436 Foxen Drive, as a row of street trees in the 500 block of Cota Street, Lotusland, and as a row of trees on the south side of the Goleta Valley Medical Building (5333 Hollister Avenue).

HE GUADALUPE PALM is an ideal palm for our area, for many reasons. Its luxurious, light green, foliage provides beauty all year long. It is perhaps the most sustainable palm - once established, it is drought-tolerant. Because of its slow growth and small stature at maturity, it has a good scale and Guadalupe Palm shape for most gardens and landscapes. It is low maintenance, not requiring pruning. On top of that, the fruit is edible. What Guadalupe Palm has several attributes that make it more more could anyone ask of a palm? desirable - and often the better design selection than Guadalupe Palm loves central California’s coastal climate, its (much, much, taller) Mexican Fan Palm cousin - for which is similar to that on Guadalupe many landscape applications.

HE IMPACT OF THE MODERN, as it wended its way through artistic imaginations and began to shape an increasingly connected global cultural realm, is on view in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s newest exhibition Going Global: Abstract Art at Mid-Century. Drawn from the Museum’s permanent collection by the Museum’s Curator of Contemporary Art James Glisson, with several works that are a delight to remember from previous exhibitions in alternative contexts, the exhibition opened with receptions for donors and members last Friday and Saturday. On both days guests arrived in droves for a first peek. After a short walk though Ludington Court’s multi-cultural, multi-century splendors, visitors’ eyes were arrested by Going Global’s three freestanding sculptures, including a masterpiece by Isamu Noguchi, Ceremony, created in 1982 and purchased by the Museum with funds provided by the Mary and Leigh Block Fund in 1983. Noguchi’s piece is abstract – and also evokes a sense of the natural world by virtue of its raw and carefully worked materials... jasper, granite, and wood. It is in the company of Edgar Negret’s Tower No. 3 from 1969, a gift of Robert B. and Mercedes H. Eichholz and George Tsutakawa’s Obos #5 from 1957, a Museum purchase from their Third Pacific Coast Biennial Fund.

The exhibition is made up of work by artists born in Argentina, Sculptures by Isamu Noguchi, Édgar Negret, and George Tsutakawa are center stage in Going Global Colombia, Germany, France, Hungary, Israel, Japan, Mexico, Portugal, Peru, Venezuela, the UK, and the USA according to Glisson, and represents the global nature of abstract art’s impact. Its 35 artworks employ a range of media and styles. Glisson, to help filter the work and highlight connections organized it into four groupings: Op Art, Layers, Gestural Abstraction, and Signs & Symbols. Made possible through the support of the Santa Barbara Museum of Art Women’s Board, the exhibition will be on view through September 25th.

Volleyball & Father’s Day

By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE


OW! The beaches were packed on Father’s Day weekend, almost like one of those paintings with a rainbow of colored umbrellas dotting the strand and an occasional sailboat or two in the distance framed by a clear blue sky. This was one of those Chamber of Commerce days and that apparently wasn’t lost on hundreds of fun loving beach-goers! Parking (legal parking!) is always hard to find, but luckily, cruising by East Beach’s parking lot, I saw someone pull out. Voila! … an instant spot with my name on it!
