SB Neighborhood Clinics Reaches Milestone


By Kerry Methner, PhD / VOICE

N UP-SWELLING OF CREATIVE GRASSROOTS RESPONSE to our community’s healthcare needs has seen the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinic’s comprehensive fundraising campaign hit its goal to raise $20 million. Making it possible were their Santa Barbara neighbors who recognize the value of the accessible clinics for their community and for their families.

Mark Asman, Co-Chair Katina Zaninovich, Co-Chair Peter MacDougall, Chair James Armstrong, Past Board Chair Steve Ainsley Laurie Ashton Ed Birch Jon Clark Domenic Caluori, DMD Brian Gough Vicki Hazard Steve Hicks Fred Kass, MD Bob Knight David Landecker Marshall Rose Melinda Staveley

“We are grateful to the Santa Barbara Community. Thank you for caring for our health,” shared local artists, donors, and patients of Santa Barbara The Honorary Committee Neighborhood Clinics, Lady Leslie Ridley-Tree, Chair “We are Caro Clarke and Andrew Lois Capps Leonard. grateful to the Respresentative of the Linda Gluck Whatever You Need by Andrew Leonard Santa Barbara many supporters, Andrew Stan Hatch grew up in Goleta Community.

While in New York, he met artist Caro Kurt Ransohoff our health.” Clarke. The artists married and returned to Santa Barbara, where they are raising their family. Maryan Schall As artists and parents, they knew that close, affordable health care is essential and so, when the – Caro Clarke & Ron Werft campaign got under way, Leonard began sharing a portion of all of his sales in support of the clinics. Andrew Leonard At this point they’ve donated over $1,000. And, their generosity continues. Leonard’s work reflects the architecture and community where he grew up and now finds himself. Visit his website, where he’s known as “digital sunsets” (www. digitalsunsets.net) and discover places you’ve likely cruised past or hung out... Rose Cafe, El Superica, the Santa Barbara Mission, Guadalajara Market. Evoking an entirely different, mysterious feel is the work of Caro Clarke, found on her website (www. quierocaro.com). A devoted mother and artist, she studied at UC Santa Cruz before meeting Leonard when she also became a student at the Art Students League in NYC. Offering a sense of the intensely mystical feminine, Caro’s website includes original art, apparel, Tarot cards, and prints. The Campaign will fund the Clinics’ capital improvements and equipment for their current facilities, cover annual operating funds for five years, and fund a new state of the art westside neighborhood clinic. Currently, the new Westside Clinic is working its way through the local planning process. Print by Caro Clarke The groundbreaking can’t come too soon, as SBNC’s many supporters have demonstrated.

Blaze On TV Hill Leads To Post-Fire Open House ACE TO FACE WITH AN EXPLOSIVE FIRE, Westside residents are asking for an opportunity to meet with fire and police officials about safety plans, exit strategies, and cell phone notifications after the dangerous Loma Fire, last week. Mayor Cathy Murillo and District 3 council member Oscar Gutierrez are taking the lead on the Loma Fire follow up, which burned ten acres on one of the most visible hillsides in Santa Barbara and scared thousands of citizens. The city council met with safety officials during an emergency meeting last week and now will meet with concerned citizens. “I think people should meet and see the Fire Chief Chris Mailes and Interim Police Chief Bernard Melekian in person and review the event and talk about the future,” commented council member Oscar Gutierrez, during an interview with Voice Magazine. The fire was fully contained by Monday and a suspect who allegedly started the fire has been arrested. "Mayor Pro Tem Oscar Gutierrez and I are organizing a post-fire open house with the community invited to hear from the Police Chief and the Fire Chief. We are focusing on lower Westside residents as we have heard from them that they wanted emergency notifications that night,” stated Mayor Cathy Murillo on Wednesday. The meeting has been set for Parque de los Ninos from 12 noon to 2pm on Saturday June 12th, according to Murillo. “It will be walking distance to families from Lower Westside neighborhood, she noted. It will be “casual... walk up to ask Fire Chief questions, Police Chief, and Liliana Encinas who will discuss disaster preparedness.” The fire was moving uphill, away from the lower Westside, and was controlled within 45 minutes, so there was focus instead on

evacuating residents on the hill, where the fire was headed, according to Mayor Murillo. "Still, we want to connect with these concerned residents, let them know how we will adjust our notification procedures, answer their questions about stabilizing the hillside in the event of rain, and also encourage everyone related to disaster preparedness,” continued Murillo. Council member Gutierrez offered this eye witness account of the evening. “I was dining with friends downtown and our discussion turned to Sundowners and fire possibilities. After dinner I took them for a ride to Loma to see the famous view of the city and harbor and upon reaching the street we saw the entire hillside explode on fire in front of our eyes. I immediately put the car in reverse and left… it was so close and so dangerous… It was surreal and like a movie,” Gutierrez shared, still shaken by the instantaneous confrontation with the fire. According to a police report, "Due to the fast-moving fire and proximity to neighborhoods, multiple off-duty Santa Barbara Police Officers were recalled to assist with evacuations. Santa Barbara County Sheriff 's Office assisted the Santa Barbara Police Department with evacuations and road closures. Hundreds of residents in the surrounding neighborhoods were evacuated.” Apparently, residents in the path of the fire were notified by cell phone alerts, but, residents across from the fire and not in the path were not notified by cell phone, but were notified by police officers going door to door. The SBPD gave this account of the arrest: "Around midnight, City Fire Investigators noticed a suspicious subject scrambling down the lower portion of the hill and hiding in the brush between Loma Alta Drive and West Ortega Street. Investigators detained the suspect and called for immediate Police back-up. Officers, Detectives, and Fire Investigators detained Victor Hernandez, 23, a Santa Barbara resident. Hernandez has been a suspect in other recent arson cases within the city." Photo courtesy of SB Police Department

How Tax Pay-Outs from the 1% Fueled Gov. Gavin Newsom’s State Budget Spending Spree By Jerry Roberts / Newsmakers / www.newsmakerswithjr.com / May 26, 2021


NE YEAR AGO, the (all rise) Deputy Director of California’s Department of Finance checked in with dreadful news about how the pandemic would batter the state budget – a $54 billion deficit, vast revenue losses, painful cuts, deficits as far as the eye could see. This week, Sacramento fiscal honcho H.D. Palmer returned to Newsmakers to explain why that doomsday forecast was totally wrong. “We didn’t know where the bottom was,” Palmer recalled of the saturnine fiscal landscape of May 2020. In a seeming miracle of economic jujitsu, the Department of Finance today foresees a $56 billion surplus for the fiscal year that begins on July 1st, Palmer told us on Wednesday, within a $286 billion budget that includes an expansive spree of new spending – $600 cash payments for a large majority of citizens, whopping increases on programs for the homeless, a big boost in per-student spending, a new pre-K public school program, health care for aging undocumented citizens, H. D. Palmer for starters – which Gov. Gavin Newsom, not immodest by nature, has been trumpeting daily as his “California Comeback Plan.” In a happy surprise for Gavin, Sacramento finds itself awash in money at the very moment he’s campaigning to fight off a recall. Oh, did he mention the cash for rural broadband, the 2028 Olympics, or his parking ticket forgiveness program? Buy, buy, sell, sell... As a financial matter, California’s budget bonanza has little to do with acts of governance the governor or Legislature did or did not perform. As Palmer makes clear in our interview, the single biggest factor in the turnaround is the massive stock market gains thrown off by the COVID catastrophe – unforeseen in 2020 by state forecasters – generating capital gains that accrued to the most wealthy Californians, who in turn paid a chunk under the state’s top-heavy system of taxation. The three most critical revenues for state government are corporation, sales, and

Foothills Forever Nears Preservation Goal


HE SAN MARCOS FOOTHILLS FOREVER CAMPAIGN is on the last mile of what has turned into a golden path to the Santa Ynez Mountains, with millions of dollars rolling in for the cause, a deadline extension to June 9th, and an offer of financial assistance from Santa Barbara County to help complete the fundraising. The campaign reported the extension to June 9th and the need to raise $725,480 to make the land purchase. In a surprise move, Santa Barbara County Commissioners, on the same day, voted to unanimously support the project, potentially up to $2 million. A proposal for the project was made by 2nd District Supervisor Greg Hart, which will be voted on at the June 8th meeting, just one day before the deadline. During the last week, two major donors came forward with million dollar donations, joining more than 3,500 donors from the community. The total goal for Foothills Forever is $20 million. Along with the inclusion of $2 million for the Foothills Forever campaign, the board will also consider granting $100,000 for coastal conservation efforts in the North County unincorporated areas. If the goal is not met, a development called The Terraces will proceed. It would include eight large homes, on 20 acres each, with common open spaces. The housing project is being developed by the Chadmar Group, Santa Monica.

personal income taxes, and it is the latter that is largely responsible for enabling what the embattled governor has termed a “transformational...historic budget.” As Palmer noted, the top one percent cohort of taxpayers finance about 40 percent of the general fund via the state income tax. More broadly, the top 20 percent pay out 90 percent of income tax revenues, which finance two-thirds of the operating budget. Such a good deal for everyone else! Except...the market goes up, the market goes down, and state government’s heavy reliance on its fluctuations and foibles makes California’s tax system enormously volatile – and subject to sudden plunges, like the one that accompanied the first dot.com crash at the turn of the century, paving the way for the, um, recall of Gov. Gray Davis. As the Legislature begins to impose their imprint on Newsom’s latest budget proposal, their actions will affect millions of students and their teachers, hundreds of thousands of public employees, unemployed workers, and the rolls of poor, homeless, and otherwise vulnerable residents, immigrants, and children who rely on medical, welfare, and food programs – not to mention every taxpayer who uses state roads, parks, and beaches, or lives at risk of earthquake, wildfire, or flood. In our interview, Palmer clearly explicates this and many other complexities, contradictions, and complex crosscurrents of politics and policy underpinning the astonishing resurgence of state government’s wherewithal, preparedness, and ability to spend your money.

Congressman Carbajal Reintroduces Small Transit Communities Modernization Act


By Daisy Scottt / VOICE

Photos courtesy of https://sbmtd.gov/plan-your-trip/accessibility/

N A SIGNIFICANT STEP TOWARD SUPPORTING SMALL PUBLIC TRANSIT PROVIDERS, Congressman Salud Carbajal has reintroduced the Small Transit Communities Modernization Act. If passed, the bill would phase out Small Transit Intensive Cities (STIC) funding over the course of three years for non-qualifying transit providers, rather than immediately halt funding. This would prove especially valuable for the Santa Barbara Metropolitan Transit District, which is expected to no longer qualify for STIC funding following 2020 census results. “Many people on the Central Coast depend on community transit providers to get to work, school, and go about their daily lives,” said Congressman Carbajal in a statement. “It is important that we continue to support local transit operators as their customer base grows and they plan for the future. I’m proud to introduce this bill to prevent an abrupt and significant funding cut in order to preserve transportation options as we come out of the pandemic and return to normal activities.” The STIC program distributes federal funding to transit providers that serve urban areas with a population between 50,000 and 200,000 individuals, and surpass average service levels in comparison to larger transit companies. Six criteria determine STIC apportionment amounts, including data such as passenger miles per capita and passenger trips per capita. According to Hillary Blackerby, MTD’s Planning and Marketing Manager, MTD has consistently received STIC funding on the basis of all six of these criteria, historically being awarded approximately $1.9 to $2 million per year. This funding in turn has supported a range of MTD’s capital and operational costs. Yet as of this year, MTD anticipates that it will go over the STIC population threshold in the 2020 census results,

and will subsequently lose this source of significant funding. By reintroducing the Small Transit Communities Modernization Act, Congressman Carbajal has proposed a way for MTD and other non-qualifying agencies to gradually adjust to this loss of funds. First introduced in 2020, the bill calls for a three-year phasing out period, during which time non-qualifying agencies would receive half of the funding they did during the previous fiscal year. “We do think that this Small Transit Communities Modernization Act would provide that softer landing for us and for any other agency,” commented Blackerby. “Just because we have a few more people in our region doesn't mean that more money is pouring in from somewhere else to backfill those funds that we’ve come to rely on.” Looking ahead, MTD continues to prepare its budget plans around the fact that it will, in all likelihood, ultimately lose its STIC funding. However, Blackerby remains optimistic for the future in light of Congressman Carbajal’s action, as well as the current administration’s interest in supporting public transportation. “We’re really appreciative to Congressman Carbajal for introducing this, he really has a good understanding of what’s at stake here,” shared Blackerby. “It remains to be seen what’s going to take place in Washington and in Sacramento when it comes to investment in transit and making sure that we’re able to not just keep things together... but to actually thrive and invest further in transit infrastructure and operations. It’s actually a pretty exciting time, things on the horizon look bright, but obviously we’ve got to make sure it happens.” For more information on Congressman Carbajal and the Small Transit Communities Modernization Act, visit www.carbajal.house.gov.

It’s Happening Around Town... Memorial Day

Washed Ashore & Destroyed

Making Local Waters Safer

DESTROYED BY WAVES, a beach boat is cleaned up with an all out effort at dawn along Santa Claus Beach near Carpinteria. It broke loose from its anchorage and first hit the shoreline Saturday.

MEMORIAL DAY 2021 in Goleta, Santa Barbara, and Carpinteria. Impressive turnouts and great respect for those who fought and died for our freedoms. (Santa Barbara did not have a program this year, but flags were out and they will be back in 2022.) Boaters get advice and safety inspections during SAFE BOATING WEEK with Memorial Day weekend and summer ahead. Santa Barbara Harbor entrance often gets very crowded with several types of water craft.

Managing local conditions could help coral reefs persevere in the face of climate crisis


By Harrison Tasoff / The UC Santa Barbara Current

ORALS ARE IN TROUBLE. All across the globe diverse and dynamic ecosystems are taking huge hits year after year. The Great Barrier Reef has lost half of its coral since 1995. Scientists are seeing similar declines in reefs from Hawai‘i to the Florida Keys and across the Indo-Pacific region.

The widespread decline is fueled in part by climate-driven heatwaves that induce coral bleaching — the breakdown of the relationship between shallow-water coral and the symbiotic algae they rely upon for nutrients. Climate change is a clear and present danger to the persistence of coral reefs, and global reductions in carbon emissions is critical for the future of reefs. But according to a new study published in the journal Science, managing local environmental conditions can help give coral a fighting chance. “Some have argued that climate change is so overwhelming that conserving coral reefs on a local scale is futile,” said lead author Mary Donovan, a former postdoctoral researcher at UC Santa Barbara, now Sea goldie school around a large coral in the Gulf of Aqaba off Eilat, Israel. an assistant professor at Arizona State University. “But our study found that local impacts on coral reefs magnified the effects of climate-driven for their livelihoods. However, local factors offer opportunities for management heatwaves.

Excitement Above & Below the Ocean’s Surface

AST WEEKEND’S MEMORIAL DAY CELEBRATIONS extended to the entire city of Santa Barbara and appeared to attract 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 seemed like a slalom course but I was determined to watch the annual Memorial Day yacht race. The conditions were perfect, just the right wind, and the sand was filled with beach lovers of all ages watching the sails floating by. From my comfortable spot on the strand a thought occurred to me: Do any of the mariners sailing in the direction of Montecito know that they could be navigating over a hidden wine cellar located in the depths beneath their race course? That’s right, you heard it here, a deep sea wine cellar! Ocean Fathoms, a California company, has been aging a cache of 1,800 bottles of wine on the ocean floor at a spot about 1.2 miles off the coast of Montecito. From Rick Caruso’s Rosewood Miramar somewhere on a direct line toward the islands is their secret location, the optimum cellar in the sea. With a yearly temperature of 54 to 55 degrees and no oxygen, the wines are kept fresh in an environment lacking ultraviolet light or sound. Thanks to the constant current as its squeezed through the channel, the sea provides a perpetual pulsation of the bottles. A team of divers in thick wetsuits and a commercial fishing boat loaded with gear made this underwater aging location a reality. The venture began when Emanuele Azzaretto, who grew up in Italy making wine with his family, longed to have a bottle of ocean aged wine for himself. After failing to get his hands on a a bottle, he decided to make his own. With Todd Hahn, Jordane Andrieu, and Rajat Parr completing the team, they founded Ocean Fathoms here in Santa Barbara with the blessing of the Santa Barbara Harbormaster, the California Coastal Commission, and the U.S. Coast Guard. The concept of the ocean being a preservative began with a shipwreck in the Baltic Sea that left 168 bottles of French champagne submerged for 170 years. The sunken trade schooner was discovered off the coast of Finland in 2010 and scattered amongst the wreckage 160-feet below the surface, were the bottles of bubbly. The tops were popped and experts who tasted the contents said the champagne preserved its taste even after decades thanks to near-perfect wine aging conditions found at the bottom of the Baltic

Sea with a temperature 35-40 degrees Fahrenheit, relatively low salinity, low levels of light, and high pressure. The plethora of marine life in the nutrient-rich waters off Santa Barbara’s shores plays a role as well. The underwater environment creates its own patterns turning each bottle into Mother Nature’s palette. Studded with barnacles, shells, coral, and traces of creatures like sea worms and octopi, each and every bottle is a unique work of art, definitely a conversation piece to be treasured and kept as a memento. Ocean Fathoms’ drops – recently done in March - include wines made with Santa Ynez Valley fruit, as well as bottles by other select winemakers. Although as yet a fairly unknown concept, there are high-profile partnerships in the works with labels like Dierberg and Star Lane, Francis Ford Coppola, and Taittinger. So how is that for an interesting thing going on just below the surface off-shore in the Santa Barbara Channel? I had no clue until it was pointed out to me – what a concept that is! Feedback from those who have had the pleasure of tasting those wines nested in our cellar in the sea have given them a huge thumbs up!

EconomicVOICE Job Openings Soar “The number of job openings reached a series high of 8.1 million on the last business day of March, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Hires were little changed at 6.0 million. Total separations were little changed at 5.3 million. Within separations, the quits rate was unchanged at 2.4 percent while the layoffs and discharges rate decreased to a series low of 1.0 percent.”


By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

And we have yet to see the enactment of an American Jobs Plan for massive infrastructure spending that will create even more jobs. Does that mean we have a labor shortage with more then eight million still out of work who say they are looking for work? There are supply bottlenecks while companies ramp up production again, and the inflation rate is hitting new highs since the Great Recession. Will wages begin to rise as well from their lows of the last 40 years? The consumer price index soared 0.8 percent to match the biggest monthly increase since 2009, the government. Economists had forecast a smaller rise. The rate of inflation over the past year jumped to 4.2 percent from 2.6 percent in the prior month — the highest level since 2008. Wages have been held down for most workers by the rising power of corporations and weakening of labor unions since 1980. However, the trend is about to reverse as the demand for workers increases. Will it cause the Fed to boost their short term interest rates? Fed Chair Powell doesn’t want to, but Treasury Secretary Yellen believes rates will have to rise if higher inflation Job Openings continues. Who is right? It is too early to tell. This also means the U.S. economy is in for a wild ride this decade. Hires Harlan Green © 2021 Follow Harlan Green on Twitter: https://twitter.com/HarlanGreen


In the arts, entertainment, and recreation industry, vacancies increased by 81,000 jobs, Reuters has reported. Vacancies also increased in manufacturing, trade, transportation, and utilities industries, as well as in finance. Job openings rose in the Northeast and Midwest regions. But vacancies dropped in the healthcare and social assistance industry. There is a red-hot demand for workers after what I call the pandemic recession. So we are essentially at the starting gate of the next growth cycle with first quarter GDP already showing 6.4 percent growth. So economic indicators will have crazy numbers until we reach herd immunity and everyone—including teachers, day-care workers, and government workers—are able to return to work. There are still two million fewer women and 1.5 million fewer men in the labor force than pre-pandemic levels. This Calculated Risk graph shows that companies are holding on to more of their employees with lower separations and quits, while the recent unemployment report actually showed some one million new jobs were created, but just 266,000 above the normal seasonal rate of hiring. The two million gap between Hires and Job Openings in the graph means companies are looking for workers. But it will take time for workers to find suitable jobs, and employers perhaps to begin to raise their minimum wages for essential workers in the service sector (that are the lowest paid). A record number of small businesses said they could not fill open jobs in April, as well, adding to a growing national controversy over whether extra unemployment benefits are keeping scores of people from re-entering the labor force. The extra $300 in jobless benefits was extended to September in Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Recovery Act. Some 44 percent of small businesses said job openings went unfilled in April, according to the National Federation of Independent Business. The NFIB is the nation’s largest smallbusiness lobbying group.

T WAS MAY OF 2009 AND THE JESUSITA FIRE WAS QUICKLY SPREADING through the hills above San Roque and threatening to cross Foothill Road in several areas, potentially turning catastrophic. We raced to evacuate the area and headed to Los Angeles to stay with friends. In what felt like a sign of sympathy to our situation, the Grateful Dead played Fire on the Mountain at their May 9th show at the Forum. That fire ended up burning almost 9,000 acres and destroyed or damaged 80+ homes. It does not even come close to Brian Johnson, the impact from the Thomas Fire or other historic SBAOR President fires, but it was the first one that caused us to evacuate, so it will always stand out in my mind. Summer is almost here and that means fire season is here as well. New laws are going into effect this summer that will affect homes sold in the high or very high fire severity zones. A good bit of Santa Barbara falls into those zones and that means that homes being sold will have to provide documentation that they are in compliance with maintaining a defensible space or “buffer zone” between the home and flammable materials such as grass, trees, or wildland areas around the property. There are a few ways to comply with this law. There will be some areas without a local ordinance requiring an owner to obtain documentation of compliance with the defensible space laws. In this case, the buyer must agree to obtain documentation of compliance within one year after closing escrow. Alternatively, if the seller has obtained documentation of compliance within six months prior to entering into contract, the seller must provide that documentation to the buyer and provide information on the local agency from which a copy of that documentation may be obtained. For areas that have a local ordinance requiring an owner to obtain documentation that the property complies with defensible space laws then one of two things can happen. The buyer can agree to comply with the requirements of the local ordinance, if the ordinance allows the buyer to do so. Alternatively, the seller shall provide the buyer with a copy of the documentation that complies with the requirements of that local ordinance and information on the local agency from which a copy of that documentation may be obtained. It is critical to remember these requirements when purchasing your home. Discuss the requirements with your agent and your insurance carrier. Vigilance is a small price to pay to live among such beauty. Brian Johnson is a California licensed real estate agent and the Managing Director of Radius Commercial Real Estate.
