An Evening with Sinatra

LISTENING TO “OL’ BLUE EYES” HIMSELF, Tony DeSare learned how to sing the Great American Songbook. A nationally acclaimed singer and pianist, DeSare will join the Santa Barbara Symphony onstage at the Granada Theatre for An Evening With Sinatra on June 15th.

DeSare’s journey as a performer began with his childhood fascination with playing ragtime and the Great American Songbook on the piano. When he was 15, his mother bought him his first Frank Sinatra Capitol years record.

“It was like I was hearing magic for the first time,” DeSare told VOICE. “I just wanted to be able to make some of that magic myself.”

The Symphony’s 70th anniversary season finale promises to share a bit of that very magic by featuring all of Sinatra’s calling cards, including Luck Be a Lady, My Way, Come Fly With Me, and more.

By pairing these familiar favorites with new arrangements and original numbers, DeSare engages both avid fans and younger audience members who may not have heard of Frank Sinatra before that night.

“First and foremost, I want people to be entertained and to come away — even if they were already a Sinatra fan — with a greater appreciation of his art and knowing more about his career,” shared DeSare. “For the people who didn’t know Frank Sinatra, I want them to walk out and have their next move be to go to Spotify and create a

Frank Sinatra playlist.”

DownBeat magazine’s “Rising Star Male Vocalist,” DeSare has performed with more than a hundred symphony orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, San Francisco Symphony, and the New York Pops, as well as collaborated with the band Postmodern Jukebox.

Through it all, DeSare’s most memorable concert remains a performance he delivered in his hometown of Saratoga Springs, New York. Decades earlier, he had seen Frank Sinatra sing live there for the first time.

“Years later I did a Frank Sinatra show on that same stage with the Philadelphia Orchestra, standing exactly where he stood when I saw him,” shared DeSare. “That was a real full circle moment for me.”

With so many accomplished 20th century singers to choose from, concert-goers cannot help but to ask the question: why Sinatra? To DeSare, the answer is simple — when it comes to the Great American Songbook, “Frank is always king.”

“It’s not just about the sound of his voice, it’s the way he approached phrasing, the way he told a story,” said DeSare. “His voice is almost like a cello or viola the way he makes music along with the arrangement.”

DeSare also adds a series of modern standards to his concerts that he believes Sinatra would have ultimately recorded, such as a bossa nova twist on the Bee Gees’ More Than a Woman, so that his productions do not fall under the realm of a tribute show.

An award-winning composer, DeSare will also perform several original works with the Santa Barbara Symphony. To date, DeSare has scored five films as well as composed the theme song for

the film My Date with Drew. Rooted in his passion for the Great American Songbook, his pieces will provide fresh energy to the program.

Combined with the talent of the Santa Barbara Symphony under the baton of Music & Artistic Director Nir Kabaretti, An Evening With Sinatra will leave attendees remarking, in the words of Frank himself, “It Was a Very Good Year.”

For tickets ($55 - $215) and info visit www.TheSymphony.org or call 805-898-9386.

To encourage patrons to make it a party, a 20% discount on ticket purchases of four or more is being offered. Use promo code: PARTY

Stable Income and Capitalization Reported at Montecito Bank & Trust

REPORTING A NET INCOME OF $4.83 MILLION, Montecito Bank & Trust showed a .30 percent increase year-over-year and closed the quarter with $2.11 billion, down 11.97 percent or $287.20 million.

“While we did see slight deposit outflow this past quarter, we also welcomed several new relationships. Our liquidity remains strong, we are highly capitalized with total capital at nearly 15 percent, and our deposit and loan portfolios are well-diversified with no concentrations or exposures to crypto or blockchain,” stated Janet Garufis Chairman and CEO. “Economic headwinds have started to slow growth across the industry, but our strong balance sheet and diversified high-performing loan portfolio provide a strong foundation for our locally based teams to continue providing the world-class experience and community support that is synonymous with our 48-year history. Our clients and communities can be confident in the financial health and community commitment of this organization.”

Loans remained flat at $1.18 million. Deposits, down 12.32 percent year-over-year, closed the quarter at $1.92 billion. The bank’s total risk-based capital remains very strong at 14.87 percent, an increase of 6.98 percent compared to the same period last year, far exceeding the ten percent regulatory minimum required to be considered well capitalized.

The Bank’s ongoing commitment is evident in the January expansion to Santa Maria where Garufis noted, “We are thrilled to have joined the Santa Maria community in January and are grateful for the new clients and partnerships we continue to earn, just a few months into our opening.”

Montecito Bank & Trust is the oldest and largest locally owned community bank in the Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. Founded in 1975, the bank celebrated its 48th anniversary on March 17, 2023 and operates 12 branch offices in Santa Barbara, Goleta, Santa Maria, Solvang, Montecito, Carpinteria, Ventura, Camarillo and Westlake Village. montecito.bank

High Fire Season Announced

HIGH FIRE SEASON for all areas of Santa Barbara County was announced by the Santa Barbara County Fire Department and other local fire jurisdictions, effective June 5th.

“SBC Fire urges all community members to remain proactive and diligent in implementing fire safety practices during this High Fire Season,” stated SBC Fire in the official press release.

With the onset of this season, SBC Fire will suspend all burn permits issued for residential burning and hazard reduction, while simultaneously increasing the deployment of vital resources to combat vegetation fires. The public is requested to follow these guidelines:

Maintain Vegetation Clearance: Individuals are advised to maintain proper vegetation clearance around structures to minimize fire risks.

Review and become acquainted with the “Ready! Set! Go!” wildfire action plan, which outlines crucial steps for preparedness and response in the event of a wildfire. For more details, please visit www.sbcfire.com.

Wildfire smoke and ash contain very small particles called particulate matter, which harm the lungs and heart. The best protection against wildfire smoke is to stay indoors as much as possible, ideally in a well-sealed “clean air room” with an air purifier. The Air Pollution Control District (APCD) provides instructions to create a “clean air room” on their website. APCD’s website also provides countywide hourly air quality conditions. People are also encouraged to sign up for Air Quality Alerts issued during wildfires.

The public is encouraged to sign up for emergency alerts at ReadySBC.org

Today’s decision leaves in place last year’s ruling by the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals that the federal government violated the National Environmental Policy Act, Endangered Species Act, and Coastal Zone Management Act when it allowed fracking and acidizing extraction practices at all offshore oil and gas wells in leased federal waters in the Pacific Ocean.

Environmental Defense Center initially filed a lawsuit in 2014 to stop fracking and acidizing in the region after discovering, through a series of Freedom of Information Act requests, that more than 50 permits had been issued by the federal government without any public or environmental review.

“The Supreme Court was right to reject the oil industry’s latest attempt to allow fracking and acidizing in our waters with zero meaningful environmental review,” said Maggie Hall, senior attorney at EDC. “The Santa Barbara Channel is one of the most ecologically rich and important regions in the world. As the climate crisis escalates, ending these destructive extraction practices is a matter of survival — not just for the whales, otters, and other animals in the Channel, but for all life on earth.”

The appeals court decision also forbids the Interior Department from issuing fracking permits until it completes an Endangered Species Act consultation and an Environmental Impact Statement that analyzes “the environmental impacts of extensive offshore fracking” and “fully and fairly evaluate[s] all reasonable alternatives.”

The ruling was the result of three separate lawsuits filed by the Center for Biological Diversity and Wishtoyo Foundation, Environmental Defense Center and Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, and the State of California. The lawsuits challenged the federal government’s approval and inadequate environmental review of offshore fracking in the Pacific Ocean.

“Protecting the health of the ocean is essential to conserving the ecosystem upon which Chumash people have thrived for more than 10,000 years,” said Mati Waiya, executive director of the Wishtoyo Foundation, a native-led nonprofit dedicated to the protection of Chumash lifeways and the environment. “We celebrate the appellate court’s decision, which by upholding environmental laws, honors the rights of our people and protects our precious, coastal resources.”

The American Petroleum Institute, ExxonMobil and DCOR, LLC, which intervened as defendants in the case, asked the Supreme Court to review the 9th Circuit’s decision. The Department of Justice, representing the federal defendant agencies, opposed the petition for review.

“Today’s decision affirms the importance of assessing the impacts of offshore fracking on California’s marine wildlife, fisheries, and coastal communities,” said Ted Morton, executive director of Santa Barbara Channelkeeper. “With ever-mounting threats to ocean ecosystems from climate change, it is essential that federal agencies adequately evaluate the risks of oil and gas development on marine resources.”

At least ten chemicals routinely used in offshore fracking could kill or harm a broad variety of marine species, including marine mammals and fish, Center scientists have found. The California Council on Science and Technology has identified some common fracking chemicals to be among the most toxic in the world to marine animals.

“California’s amazing coast and vulnerable marine life deserve this victory, which will protect the ecosystem from the many dangers of offshore fracking,” said Kristen Monsell, oceans legal director at the Center for Biological Diversity. “The fracking ban will help prevent more toxic chemicals from poisoning fish, sea otters, and other marine life. But our ocean won’t be truly protected until offshore drilling stops once and for all. We hope this is the beginning of the end of drilling off California’s coast.”

The 9th Circuit’s decision notes that Interior “disregarded necessary caution” when greenlighting fracking practices with unknown consequences.

The Center for Biological Diversity is a national, nonprofit conservation organization with more than 1.7 million members and online activists dedicated to the protection of endangered species and wild places.

The Environmental Defense Center, a non-profit law firm, protects and enhances the local environment through education, advocacy, and legal action and works primarily within Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo counties. Since 1977, EDC has empowered community based organizations to advance environmental protection. EDC’s focus areas include protection of the Santa Barbara Channel, ensuring clean water, preserving open space and wildlife, and addressing climate and energy.

SB Unified Superintendent Hosts Annual State of Our Schools

EDUCATORS, PARENTS, AND COMMUNITY MEMBERS packed Carrillo Recreation Center on May 25th for Santa Barbara Unified School District Superintendent Dr. Hilda Maldonado’s presentation of the Santa Barbara Education Foundation’s annual State of Our Schools.

Currently, SB Unified serves over 12,000 students in 19 schools. 61 percent are socioeconomically disadvantaged, nearly 10 percent are unhoused, 13.1 percent are students with disabilities, and 15.1 percent are Emergent Multilingual Learners. The district, which celebrates the class of 2023 this week, has a 95.5 percent graduation rate.

Maldonado began her talk with a demonstration of ChatGPT to illustrate how artificial intelligence technology is impacting how students access and present concepts. Despite changes to the educational landscape, Maldonado emphasized that the need for schools to support the growth of critical thinkers has not changed.

She also outlined SBUSD’s resources to support student success, including Family Engagement Liaisons, crisis counselors, youth outreach workers, and licensed clinicians. School facilities are also allowing students explore various career pathways. In addition, for the first time since 2007, all elementary teachers will have a common set of materials to teach reading with the recently adopted Wit & Wisdom/Fundations curriculum. Maldonado said that she hopes for community support of students’ literacy development in the form of citywide events and celebrations.

A Surprising Turn for the Promenade

State Street Advisory Committee Reviews Design Proposals

IN A TURNAROUND from past State Street Advisory Committee discussions, city staff and consulting firm MIG, Inc. effectively blindsided SSAC members by only presenting design proposals that prioritized cyclists and vehicles along the State Street Promenade.

The lack of a pedestrian-only space along the promenade prompted surprise and frustration from SSAC members as well as public commenters, sending the May 24th meeting into a spirited discussion that revealed divisions between the committee’s desires and city staff’s intentions.

“I think you’ve created a problem for yourself and us because all of the renderings are pedestrians on an eight-foot strip and bikes on a 12-foot strip,” said SSAC member Ed Lunvik. “None of the renderings really show what people are talking about today — dining outside, ambling along the storefronts, and looking at windows. You’re showing us a problem that’s got to be solved, you’re not enticing us with a State Street Promenade so far.”

MIG, who the City of Santa Barbara hired in July 2022 with a $780,000 contract, presented three design scenarios to the SSAC and the community at large. Each of the three proposals includes a two lane bike path down the promenade, with two plans also allowing for increased vehicular traffic.

“The direction we received was to provide bicycles on all of the scenarios,” said

MIG CEO Daniel Iacofano in response to SSAC members’ queries.

“I’d like to see what happens in a real pedestrian Promenade without bikes,” said Davis. “I thought the community expected us to see that and the three alternatives we have don’t go there. City staff may want to accommodate bikes but we’re in a committee to give you input and I think some of us would like at least the opportunity to talk about a Promenade which doesn’t include [a bicycle path].”

The city formed the SSAC in July 2021, tasking its 15 members to guide the formation of a State Street Master Plan. During the committee’s first ten months, members brainstormed ideas for the future of downtown Santa Barbara. They shared their suggestions with city staff, who ultimately selected MIG as the project’s consultant while the SSAC was put on sabbatical. An SSAC subcommittee and Davis provided input during final consultant interviews.

The May 24th meeting marked the SSAC and MIG’s fifth joint meeting since August 2022. MIG has also reportedly collected public comments from 5,000 to 6,000 individuals over the course of its community engagement efforts.

MIG’s proposed design scenarios divide State Street into three districts: an Entertainment District along the 400 to 600 blocks; a Celebration/Civic District from the 700 to the 900 blocks; and the Arts District

from the 1000 to the 1300 blocks.

The first design, “Flat and Flexible,” proposes a curbless street from the 500 to 1200 blocks that is generally closed to cars, includes two bicycle lanes, and emphasizes street programming and activation. The next “Multi-Modal” design provides a curbed street that is generally open to cars as well as bicycles.

The final scenario is “Mixed/Hybrid,” applying the Multi-Modal style to the 500 to 600 blocks and 1000 to 1300 blocks, while the 700 to 900 blocks are Flat and Flexible.

The SSAC voiced disapproval over each plan’s prioritization of bicycles over a downtown pedestrian-focused atmosphere. Numerous members shared concerns over safety issues with a curbless bike thruway, such as e-bike collisions, street crossings, and a general lack of safety enforcement. Others expressed they felt the plans were misaligned with SSAC and general public interest.

“I think people are anticipating that outdoor dining was going to be prominent and pedestrian space was going to be prominent, yet the scenarios I’ve seen so far basically accommodate bikes and cars,” said Davis.

Several SSAC members suggested rerouting cyclists to the adjacent Chapala or Anacapa Streets so that a portion of the State Street Promenade could be pedestrian-only.

Derrick Bailey, the city’s Acting Streets Operation and Infrastructure Manager, spoke up from the meeting’s audience to check those ideas. He explained that adding bike lanes to Chapala would require giving up traffic lanes and making it a northbound, one-way road; creating issues for the MTD transit center and Carrillo fire station. On Anacapa, he stated the prevalence of turn lanes and the Lobero Theatre’s loading zone created difficulties.

Ultimately, he expressed that the City of Santa Barbara considered that moving cyclists away from State Street was not worth the trade-offs in downtown traffic circulation.

“The cycling facilities on these parallel streets are so impactful to their function that

it kind of backed us into this place of putting it on State Street,” said Bailey.

He echoed MIG’s call for infrastructure that would demarcate designated bike path areas, such as textured strips and dividers.

“I think that’s one of the big challenges I see, is how do you communicate to pedestrians...that they’re in a space for bikes?” asked Bailey.

“I would argue that it’s not just pedestrians that need to understand where bicyclists are, it’s the other way around too,” replied SSAC Member Dianne Black.

SSAC members also raised additional points of concern with the proposed design scenarios, namely its neglecting to outline plans for public art, housing, or how the promenade would support downtown business.

“This is our central business district, this has to work for existing and future businesses,” said Robin Elander, SSAC member and Executive Director of Downtown Santa Barbara.“We saw a lot of different renderings but we didn’t really see how it related to retail, specific restaurants, or different business types. We have more than 1,700 businesses in this area we’re looking at, and so thinking about it as it relates to those businesses is really critical.”

After the over three hours-long meeting, State Street Master Planner Tess Harris confirmed to VOICE that city staff and MIG are again looking into pedestrian exclusive spaces along the promenade.

“We are currently working on revising the designs to be responsive to the Committee members comments and will be discussing tradeoffs and transportation considerations at upcoming meetings,” said Harris. “We are exploring a pedestrian-only area in designs. Public art will certainly be part of the Master Plan throughout.”

The June 22nd SSAC meeting was canceled this week. The committee’s next meeting date is unknown, but expected to take place in July or August.

Looking ahead, MIG and city staff will be collecting general public input via a booth at the Summer Solstice festival on June 23rd and 24th. To learn more about the SSAC, visit https://statestreet.santabarbaraca.gov

SB Lifeguards Ready for Duty

WEDNESDAY, MAY 31ST: Santa Barbara is set with lifeguards for the upcoming summer season. The turnout for tryouts was very high. All beach towers, pools, and junior lifeguard camps will be staffed. Many other cities in the U.S. are short of lifeguards and may not open pools.

Local lifeguards are rigorously trained and tested to be always ready to provide assistance.

“If something happens, you are that first responder,” said Aquatics Supervisor Tony Sholl. “You are that line between are they going to make it or not. You’ve go to take it seriously, you got to be in shape and be well trained in order to do your job.”

The Magic of Miraflores

MUSIC, MERRIMENT, AND MEMORIES in the making set the tune for another promising Summer Festival when the Music Academy hosted its annual gala, The Magic of Miraflores, on Saturday night. Equal parts garden party and concert by powerhouse soprano Michelle Bradley and the Sing! children’s choir, the elegant affair united hundreds in celebrating the Academy and its outgoing CEO & President, Scott Reed.

“The Music Academy, I say often and always, is a place that rewards hard work,” shared Reed. “This is a place where a young intern can come and one day become the president. That is the magic of Miraflores.”

A strolling cocktail hour invited guests to explore the Miraflores gardens, where music filled the air courtesy of violinist and Sing! Site Coordinator Kristine Pacheco-Bernt, harpist Liza Wallace, and guitarist Chris Fossek. A self-playing piano also accompanied the buzzing crowd of teaching artists, philanthropists, and music lovers.

After a sumptuous dinner prepared by Duo Catering, attendees packed Hahn Hall for the main event. Academy Board Chair Maurice Singer welcomed all, with enthusiastic acknowledgments from gala Co-Chairs Mindy Budgor, Belle Hahn, and Lily Hahn.

With sudden flourish, Academy alum and internationally-celebrated pianist Vassily Primakov delivered a whirling performance of Chopin’s Polonaise in A-flat Major, Op. 53, ‘Heroic’ that was lighthearted and reverent.

“My life, my professional life as a musician and pianist, started here in Santa Barbara at the Music Academy of the West,” remarked Primakov.

The joyful voice of Metropolitan Opera star Michelle Bradley suddenly reverberated throughout Hahn Hall, carrying the hope and love of Wagner’s Dich teure Halle. Regal and full of life, she shared gratitude for the Academy while joking about the realities of opera.

“This is one of the first recitals, or maybe the only, where I get to sing happy music,” laughed Bradley. “I’m usually doing heavy Verdi roles, or Puccini roles where I die at the end.”

Accompanied by pianist Natasha Kisleno, Bradley carried her jovial manner throughout the concert, seamlessly shifting from the soaring In the Wand of the Wind to Verdi’s fervent Surta è la notte...Ernani! Ernani, involami. In a detour from the opera canon, Bradley channeled immense passion into renditions of the spiritual Plenty Good Room and If You Believe from Broadway musical The Wiz. Her emotion, rich voice, and vulnerability secured the concert as an intimate, unforgettable night.

The concert ended on a heartwarming note, as students of the Music Academy’s Sing! children’s choir joined Bradley onstage for ensemble performances of He’s Got the Whole World in His Hand and Al Shlosha d’Varim, sung in Hebrew.

Then, Hahn Hall’s screen illuminated with a surprise tribute video for Scott Reed. Dozens of Academy alum, staff, faculty, and community

supporters lent their voices to praising Reed’s devotion and expressing heartfelt thanks.

The night held one more surprise when Bradley and Sing! reemerged for an encore of We Are the World. As the youthful voices harmonized with Bradley, audience members couldn’t help but wonder if they would one day see one of these elementary students performing as a Music Academy fellow.

The Wave Film Festival

Summer along the coast of France — without ever leaving your seat! Voyage to Paris, the French Riviera, and beyond when the Santa Barbara International Film Festival presents The Wave Film Festival from July 14th through the 20th at SBIFF’s Riviera Theatre. A pre-pandemic favorite among local cinephiles, this expertly curated festival will feature eleven new films hailing from France, ranging from side-splitting comedies to thoughtful dramas.

Films to be screened include: Diary of a Fleeting Affair, Final Cut, The Innocent, More than Ever, Mother and Son, The Night of the 12th, Pacifiction, The Passengers of the Night, Revoir Paris, Scarlet, and The Young Imam.

"We hope this festival offers audiences a chance to dive into the past year of French Cinema," said Stewart Short, SBIFF Operations & Programming Coordinator. "The lineup includes films that have made splashes at major film festivals, films that have received some of the highest accolades in the French film industry, and films that have resonated with audiences wherever they’ve played. With films like these not always getting particularly wide releases here in the U.S., we hope The Wave serves as an opportunity for cinephiles and Francophiles to enjoy this selection of new French films and take in the past year's best all at once."

Old Spanish Days Honors Equestrian Community with a Horseshoe Pin for 2023

Submitted by Angelique Davis, Old Spanish Days Fiesta

FLANKED BY MEMBERS OF THE LOCAL EQUESTRIAN

COMMUNITY, the 2023 Fiesta Pin was unveiled by El Presidente David Bolton at The Carriage and Western Art Museum. Shaped as a horseshoe, the bronze-colored pin is highlighted with black lettering that includes this year’s theme, Let’s Fiesta!, and the years 1924 – 2023. Santa Barbara’s first Fiesta was held in 1924.

“The horseshoe symbolizes a variety of things depending on where you are in the world,” said El Presidente David Bolton. “In Spain, Latin America, the Middle East, Germany, Italy, and the Balkans, among other countries, the horseshoe always points down, sending out luck around your house and sharing luck with those around you. In England and Ireland, the horseshoe points

up, believed to bring luck in.”

The horseshoe is a symbol of more than luck. It also plays a key role in a significant architectural feature known throughout the world.

“The Moors first brought the horseshoe into architectural design throughout Spain by introducing the Moorish Arch, which is often called the Horseshoe Arch,” said El Presidente Bolton. “Beginning in 700 AD, the Moors spread their Horseshoe Arch design throughout the Andalusia region of southern Spain. To this day, the Horseshoe Arch depicts a horseshoe sitting on top of two columns. This architectural element is featured prominently in the Spanish cities of Sevilla, Granada, and Cordova.”

Unveiling the Fiesta Pin this week is timely, as attention

focuses on next week’s Fiesta Ranchera event in Goleta. Set for Thursday, June 15th at the Stow House, this annual event celebrates our area’s rich Rancho Period which so much of Fiesta is based on. Tickets are still available via ticketsauce.com.

The Carriage and Western Art Museum features prominently in Old Spanish Days as it serves as the home of the historic and classic carriages and wagons that ride in the annual Fiesta Parade, or El Desfile Histórico. The historic parade will travel along Cabrillo Boulevard from Castillo Street to Milpas on Friday, August 4th, beginning at 12 noon.

The Fiesta Rodeo and Stock Horse Show adds another equestrian element to Old Spanish Days. It will be held this year at Earl Warren Showgrounds August 2nd to 6th. For info, or to purchase a Fiesta Pin or Poster, visit www.sbfiesta.org

Inflation or Deflation Next Year?

THE FED’S FAVORED PERSONAL CONSUMPTION EXPENDITURES PRICE

INDEX (PCE) has been on a sharp downward trend since June 2022 when it reached its seven percent inflation high. Both its overall headline indicator and core index without gas and energy prices (bold line) are now rising in the four percent range.

Economic VOICE

economist at Pantheon Economics, in a recent Barron’s article. “Over the next year, both the headline and core rates—the latter excludes food and energy prices—will drop sharply. By the end of 2024, inflation is likely to be below the Federal Reserve’s two percent target, and policy makers will be trying to stop it falling too far.”

A leading business economist that I like says inflation could plunge below the Fed’s two percent inflation target sometime next year. And that would mean a recession, so the Fed should begin to lower interest rates later this year.

“The forces that drove up inflation since the onset of the COVID pandemic are reversing rapidly,” said Ian Shepherdson, chief

This happened before under Fed Chair Alan Greenspan when the Fed’s prolonged rate hikes busted the housing bubble in 2007 and precipitated the Great Recession.

The inflation rate then sank below two percent for a prolonged period, which required Greenspan’s successor as Fed Chair, Ben Bernanke, to begin the various Quantitative Easing programs that pumped excess dollars into the economy to begin a slow recovery.

Impact Investing Expert Lloyd Kurtz

Joins Montecito Bank & Trust

The main cause of inflation has been the supply shortages due to worldwide shutdowns from the COVID-19 pandemic. We know what happened to inflate grain and oil prices with the Ukraine War. But auto prices also skyrocketed with the shortage of chip supplies that are in all new cars.

Residential rents also soared, as work-from-home use also increased during and after the pandemic. Now rents are also returning to more normal levels.

To make his point, Shepherdson states, “Almost all of the eightfold increase in global container shipping costs has reversed, and domestic shipping costs also are falling rapidly. Semiconductor supply is back to normal, more or less, so vehicle production in April was higher than before the pandemic. About a third of the increase in auto dealers’ margins already has reversed.”

The labor market is the other shoe about

to drop. The unemployment rate rose from 3.4 percent to 3.7 percent in May, with 339,000 new nonfarm payroll jobs created. But there are more workers in the workforce now than before the pandemic, which will slow the wage increases, another part of the inflation picture.

Most of the major economic indicators are either flat or declining, so now would be a good time for the Fed to anticipate what will happen next—a growing surplus of supplies as countries ramp up production that will further depress prices—rather than wait too long to react to changes as it did under Greenspan and during the pandemic.

It would be nice if the Fed allowed employees to keep their higher wages by not seeing rising wages in a tight labor market as the main cause of inflation. It would alleviate the record income inequality—the worst in developed countries—which in turn would help to calm the red state-blue state partisan divide, among other benefits.

We now have both hot and cold wars to win, so there’s no good reason to induce another recession.

Hannah-Beth Jackson and Carmen Ramirez Conferred Honorary Degree from CSU Channel Islands

HONORING THEIR STRONG SUPPORT for the creation and growth of CSU Channel Islands’ Camarillo campus, former State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson as well as the late Ventura County Board of Supervisor Carmen Ramirez were awarded a Doctor of Humane Letters at the Class of 2023 graduation. CSUCI President Richard Yao presented Ramirez’s award to her husband, Roy Prince.

As a State Assemblywoman representing Ventura County in 2001, Jackson co-authored the bill that provided CSUCI with the land where the main entrance was built. She also helped guide the school’s development as a green campus, and represented the district that includes CSUCI in the State Senate from 2012 to 2020. Jackson has engaged with CSUCI’s student government by attending meetings and helping register students to vote.

Ramirez, who died in August 2022, advocated at the state level for the creation and funding of CSUCI. She was a member of the University’s President’s Advisory Board, as well as supported the launch of CSUCI’s Chicana/o Studies program.

CSUCI’s Multicultural Programs presented Ramirez with its 2012 Recognition for Women’s Leadership. At the time of her death, the environmental justice advocate represented the district that includes CSUCI on the Ventura County Board of Supervisors in addition to serving on CSUCI’s Site Authority Board.

“The Ramirez family and I are grateful for CSUCI’s recognition of our beloved Carmen with this honorary degree,” said her husband, Roy Prince. “It’s meaningful because she was instrumental in the forming of CSUCI and worked closely with the University through the years because she believed in education for all people.”

A Roiling Peace On the Water

about our collective responsibility to protect it for future generations.”

THE FIBER OF THE SANTA BARBARA EXPERIENCE includes art, artists, and our beautiful watery environment.

Aquatic, at the Santa Barbara Tennis Club, pulls it all together in their eighth annual juried exhibition. On view through July 5th with an opening reception and awards presentation from 4:30pm to 6pm on Friday, June 9th, Aquatic features work by over 30 artists in many styles and medias, all focused on water.

“Having been raised on the West Coast, swimming, fishing, surfing, and diving are very much a part of the California culture, that I have enjoyed over the years. However, concerns about droughts, declining fish, aquatic bird populations, and pollution have been looming for decades. Water is not merely a resource; it is our lifeblood, connecting us to the very essence of our existence and who we are. Through Aquatic, we strive to draw attention to the pressing environmental issues that affect our planet, highlighting the plight of wildlife and showcasing the undeniable beauty of our coastlines across the globe,” explained Susan Tibbles, Gallery Director.

In the call to entries, Tibbles encouraged artists to

“think outside the box” in their response to the theme, and they took her seriously. Visitors will discover many individual gems in the collection that includes approximately 50 pieces.

“Aquatic artists addresses a diverse range of interpretations, touching upon the mesmerizing colors of the oceans, their healing properties, and sadly, their potential demise. The artists have found inspiration in this theme, transforming it into thoughtprovoking artworks. While some pieces capture environmental concerns, others invite viewers into a world of fun and playfulness, reminding us that, deep down, we are all water babies— eternally connected to the ebb and flow of this life-giving element. Through Aquatic, we hope to foster a deeper appreciation for all things water and inspire meaningful conversations

Professor of Art Emerita, at Westmont College, Susan Savage was invited to be juror of awards, which will be presented during the reception. Savage received her BA in Art and MFA in Painting from the University of California Santa Barbara. She has had a long and rich career in secondary and higher education teaching Art in the Santa Barbara community. She taught for 23 years at Westmont College, and served as chair of the art department for ten of those years. Retiring in 2014 she now dedicates her time to her painting.

Creative Sparks Will Fly: Ensemble Theatre Company’s Presents Seared

ATEMPERAMENTAL CHEF, a tiny restaurant inundated with customers, and mounting pressure - what could go wrong? Hilarity and social commentary will collide when Ensemble Theatre Company kicks off the summer with playwright Theresa Rebeck’s comedy, Seared Previews at The New Vic begin Thursday, June 8th, with opening night held on Saturday, June 10th.

“As the saying goes, ‘If you can’t stand the heat…,’” said ETC Artistic Director and Seared director Jonathan Fox. “And things certainly get hot and steamy in this kitchen, not least of which is the chef’s artistic temperament. Seared, our first production to feature live cooking on stage, is the perfect play for us to close what has truly been an extraordinary season.”

Seared marks Fox’s final production with ETC before he steps down from his position at the end of this month. Since joining the company in 2006, he has continually displayed his directorial skills, leading productions of American Son, Porgy and Bess, Sweeney Todd, and more.

Seared will continue ETC’s tradition of welcoming summer with a comedy. Penned by award-winning playwright Theresa Rebeck, the play follows Harry, hot-headed chef who is catapulted into the limelight when a food critic praises his signature scallops. However, when his business partner, Mike, begins to see dollar signs in the restaurant’s future, the two begin to butt heads over the idea of art for art’s sake versus profits.

Andrew Elvis Miller will star as Harry, having previously been featured in the series Dexter, NCIS, and Halston. Gary Patent, who has received Ovation nominations for performances in Ragtime and The Immigrant, will play the role of Mike. The cast will also feature ETC debuts for Ronald Auguste (NCIS: LA and Dear White People), and Angela Sauer (Jane the Virgin and The Daily Show).
