One in three teens in our community report experiencing dating abuse daily. Working directly with teens, parents, school staff, and community organizers, What is LOVE helps students build healthy loving relationship skills and prevents dating abuse. This researched program improves social emotional strengths, gives educators and parents the tools needed to identify abuse, and connects students to much needed resources.
Enter What is LOVE’s Executive Director Christy Stillwell, MA Psychology, a dynamic educator and activist with over twenty years of working to implement a healthy relationship curriculum in schools across the country. Through What is LOVE, Stillwell works directly with young people, parents, school staff, and mental health providers to educate, empower and prevent the harmful impacts of relationship abuse and violence. With the support of the Future Bender Fellow Award, Stillwell plans to bring What is LOVE’s curriculum to the next level by creating an online educator portal for teachers, mental health professionals, and researchedorganizations.community-basedThecurriculum is designed to fit seamlessly into a classroom or workshop and contains everything needed to improve critical relationship skills, responsible decision making, and positive character development. What is LOVE will also amplify its #teachLOVE message by providing an online space for discussion, modeling positive behaviors, and guiding our young people to effective solutions through technology. Thus, strengthening networks, a sense of community, and connecting youth to mental health resources beyond its current reach. “I am so honored and excited to be named the 2022 Future Bender Fellow by the Brill Family Foundation,” said Stillwell.
The Brill Family Grant will host a reception for What is LOVE at 5pm on Monday, August 22nd, at Crush Bar & Tap.
“For our students, this means increased access to healthy relationship education and mental health resources. Because of the generosity of Peter and Karen Brill, What is LOVE can reach many more youths before the crisis”.
What is LOVE’s mission is to teach the next generation to love in a healthy, abuse-free way to end the cycle of relationship violence. Teen dating violence is a significantly underreported public health crisis: a recent study found that 60% of teens ages 13 to 18 reported experiencing physical, sexual, or emotional relationship violence. Youth who are victims are more likely to experience symptoms of depression and anxiety, engage in drug and alcohol abuse, engage in risky sexual behavior, and think about www.whatisLOVEteens.orgsuicide.
Over the past few years, Peter and Karen Brill have explored ways of facilitating significant social and environmental impact through transformative change. They searched high and low for organizations and individuals that fit specific criteria that would make the most impact. Or, as they call them, future benders.

By Daisy Scott / VOICE CELEBRATION OF COMMUNITY, MUSIC, AND MOVEMENT, roller skating has surged in local popularity during the pandemic as a way to connect with others and express yourself. No one knows this better than Val Selvaggio, a colorfulSelvaggio’swaterfront,weeklyskatersandtherollerWithBoutique.XanaduPaseoandparticipantskateSBdedicatedRollersclubownerofNuevo’sSkateanewrinkonhorizondozensofmeetingbythestore ensures that people of all ages can join in the fun with style. “Everyone who leaves here buying a new pair of skates, I tell them I’m so excited, and it’s not just because I just sold a pair of skates — I’m so excited to just have made another roller skater,” shared Selvaggio.AUCSanta Barbara alumna, Selvaggio has made the region her home since the early ‘90s, working at local venues such as The Four Seasons and the Coral Casino. During the pandemic, she got her first taste of launching a business by starting the company Mission Rose Pasta with her family. As the pandemic continued, Selvaggio began noticing SB Rollers’ Sunday afternoon meetings by Santa Barbara City College. When a friend let her borrow a pair of skates, Selvaggio jumped at the chance to join the group. As a former dancer, she immediately became hooked on how roller skating engages people of all ages in shared celebrations of music, dance, and community.“It’sjustbeen a complete life changer to roller skate,” commented Selvaggio. “It’s like a combination of dance and walking and exercise.” When Selvaggio learned that the Aloha Fun Center roller rink was due to open in Paseo Nuevo, she realized the shopping plaza would be the perfect location to share her new passion with others. The store’s name is inspired by one of her favorite films, Xanadu, which stars Olivia Newton-John and a rollerskating disco. In true Xanadu fashion, customers are immediately greeted by eyepopping, colorful displays of roller skates and accessories. To best serve the skating community with

City Installs New Police Evacuation Siren
“We will, and we’re asking now,” responded Iacofano.
“I don’t expect you, coming from out of town, to come here and figure out our community and how to get connected in different ways; it’s our job to do that with you,” said Saxon. “So ask us.”
State Street Advisory Committee members and City Staff at Monday’s meeting: Tess Harris (City Staff, State Street Master Planner), Susanne Tejada, Peter Lewis, Ed Lenvik, Hillary Blackerby, Dianne Black, Robin Elander Dave Davis (SSAC Chair), Kristen Miller Marge Cafarelli Michael Becker Ken Saxon (SSAC Vice Chair), Mike Jordan Elias Isaacson (City Staff, Community Development Director), Timmy Bolton (City Staff, Project Planner)
To hear the siren in an English PSA visit: https://youtu.be/IFX-mvLGr9k En Español: https://youtu.be/sus3W1n306k
ANEW, UNIQUE SIREN HAS BEEN INSTALLED on Santa Barbara Police Department police vehicles to alert community members in the event of a need to evacuate a specific area. Similar to police sirens heard in Europe, the siren is known as the “Hi-Lo” tone for its alternating between a high and low pitch. The siren sound will only be used for emergencies where individuals may need to evacuate, such as vegetation/wildland fire, any natural disaster, or hazardous materials spill incidents. If you hear this new siren tone, turn to a media source to learn if you need to evacuate your current area. All other previous evacuation notification methods, including reverse 9-1-1, Everbridge text notifications, and personal door-to-door notifications, will continue.
“During the council hearing on the consultant selection, Ken, Robin, and I and others spoke of the amount of excitement that we had to be a part of this moment in our city’s future,” said Davis. “Mr. Mayor, I think you missed your Pearl Chase moment when you talked about the interim operations and what have you there. That’s been very confusing to the public.” Malhotra also discussed MIG’s ideas for future public engagement, including meeting people on the street, hosting special feedback events, online and hybrid meetings, and community surveys featuring interactive maps. Ultimately, MIG hopes to engage all stakeholders, from business owners to individual workers and traditionally under-represented groups, including children and the Spanish-speaking community.

Consultant Meets with State Street Advisory Committee
By Daisy Scott / VOICE
Going forward, MIG will craft a design framework that will inform the creation of a community-based preliminary concept. Public engagement events and stakeholder meetings are expected to begin in October, with the Master Plan aiming to be completed by February 2024.
“One of the key things is to make sure we make this a world-class destination that is designed for locals,” said MIG Project Manager Mukul Malhotra. “We know if you design for locals, you still get the tourists from all over the world...but at the same time you also get the people who live and work in this wonderful community.”
SSAC members voiced the importance of public engagement, emphasizing the need for feedback from people across economic backgrounds, and the local Spanish-speaking and Indigenous communities.
August 19, 2022 Local News for a Global Village | www.VoiceSB.com 7
SSAC members expressed differing opinions on downtown Santa Barbara’s overarching style, with some supporting its historic feel and others favoring more modernSSACdevelopment.ChairDaveDavis opened the meeting by remembering how Pearl Chase helped shape Santa Barbara following the 1925 earthquake, connecting it to the pandemic’s current “economic earthquake” and the State Street Master Plan’s vital role. “This is our community’s Pearl Chase moment,” said Davis.Noting that the public remains largely confused by the difference between State Street’s interim operations and long-term planning, Davis directly addressed Mayor Randy Rowse, who was in the meeting’s audience. Currently, the City Council’s State Street ad hoc committee oversees interim issues such as parklets.
COMMITTEE AND COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT WERE TOP PRIORITIES at the State Street Advisory Committee meeting with newly hired consultant MIG, Inc. This marked the committee’s first meeting since May as they waited for the City’s hiring of a consultant. Following a presentation by MIG, SSAC members were granted the opportunity to directly voice their concerns and priorities for the downtown’s future.
Monday largely served as an introductory meeting, with SSAC members briefly sharing their backgrounds with Malhotra, MIG CEO Daniel Iacofano, and Deputy Project Manager Ryan Kucinski. Malhotra highlighted past projects and MIG’s current goals to make State Street experiential, accessible, equitable, and environmentally and financially sustainable.Thecity hired MIG with a $780,000 contract in July. Previously, the firm worked with the City of Santa Barbara on community engagement for the Santa Barbara General Plan in the 1980s and in 2011. “This, to me, is what will make or break the whole thing,” said SSAC member Hillary Blackerby about public engagement efforts. She suggested going into neighborhoods beyond downtown. Each SSAC member had two minutes to share their ideas for State Street’s future. Many members supported the promenade, calling for a more experiential downtown experience by including more art and activities, engaging side streets, and establishing outdoor spaces for passersby’s enjoyment as well as community events or festivals. Members also highlighted the need to address vacant spaces and diminish feelings of incongruity between street blocks.Others pushed for increasing affordable housing and engaging educational institutions downtown. Additional areas of concern included resources for people experiencing homelessness, sustainability, and downtown transportation, including shuttles and the issue of e-bikes on State.Several

THE SEA-KISSED SHORES OF NEWFOUNDLAND COME ALIVE in Thunder
Bookworm Thunder From the Sea ofcourtesyPhoto Scholastic By
From the Sea by Joan Hiatt Harlow, setting the stage for a story that shows readers that family is determined by so much more than blood. Published in 2004 and best suited for students in the third grade and up, this straightforward and charming coming-of-age tale centers on Tom, a thirteen-year-old orphan, as he goes to live with a fisherman, Enoch, and his wife, Fiona, in Newfoundland in 1929. This unique historical setting becomes the backdrop for Tom’s adventures as he adopts a Newfoundland dog he discovers amidst a thunderstorm, and adjusts to his new home.
Similar to other literature focusing on the relationship between a child and a pet, Tom’s relationship with his dog, Thunder, helps him process his emotions and surroundings. Like Tom, Thunder is a stranger to the area, with no known family. Tom’s anxieties about Thunder’s real owner being found parallel his own worries about losing his home with Enoch and Fiona, which are only heightened when Fiona announces she is pregnant. However, Tom is met with constant reassurance, allowing readers to explore the concept of family as something defined by love and commitment.Thesethemes are interwoven between Thunder’s heroic acts, as he repeatedly protects and saves his family. This makes for an exciting read which, it is worth noting, young readers can enjoy without worrying about Thunder meeting a tragic end like so many other dog-centered tales. Harlow’s efforts to capture the atmosphere of early 20th-century Newfoundland cements the book as a compelling, historically-rooted story. From dialogues peppered with terms common to the island to references to “jannie talk” and mummers, readers inherently learn more about Newfoundland culture as they read. The book also examines historical details of everyday life, such as the reliance on local medicine and struggles with accessing formal academic instruction due to the school’s distance from the town. These elements craft a robust setting that actively shapes the story’s plot and engages readers in drawing comparisons between Tom’s world and their own.Readers are left with a sense of uplift built on themes of love and acceptance alongside adventure and perseverance, making Thunder From the Sea an enchanting work of historical fiction.

“It’s thrilling to have two Pulitzer Prize winners and one Golden Globe nominee on the roster for our coming Speaking with Pico series,” said Pico Iyer. “We’ve never had the chance to host an actress-cum-philanthropist before, and I’m sure that Isabella Rosselini will wonderfully complement the transformative, almost prophetic fiction of Jennifer Egan and the inspiring human stories of kindness and hope amidst great suffering offered by Tracy Kidder.

Gretchen loves the Grenache grape and its expression both in red wines and rosés. Working with winemaker Kris Curran, Gretchen is creating two really wonderful expressions of the potential of rosé. One is the more Provençal style of rosé – playful on the nose, full of strawberry, green melon, rosé petal, salted almond, sour cherry, tangerine, and watermelon flavors. The other is the more California style of rosé, which in her case is slightly cherries,followedwatermelonsweeter:upfront,bybrightsweetstrawberry,
celery, and sweet basil. Yet, these wines are made from the same grapes from the same fields. They are simply handled differently. This makes for a rare opportunity to taste the difference between winemaking styles. It also makes these wines interesting and fun to taste. They will be perfect for a summery afternoon, a plate of charcuterie, some lightly grilled shrimp or salmon, and some lovely richAnd,cheeses.ontop of that, Gretchen is also making a full-bodied red Grenache wine with winemaker Mikael Siguoin. It is full of strawberries, dark plums, leather, and deep dark grilling spices. This is a red wine that will stand up to the spiciest foods, roasted meats, and even Santa Maria tri-tip. But for Gretchen, the wines are only part of the equation. The tasting room is very much a part of her vision for La Lieff. She wants the tasting room to be a community-oriented place, a place for wine lovers to go and hang out after five; a clubhouse, if you will. She wants it to be, as she says, “A women-centric place that is very, very male friendly!” It will also be “nurturing and very dog friendly.” Once the new La Lieff Wines tasting room officially opens on September 8th, Lieff is planning for lecture evenings on Tuesdays, making the tasting room available for fund-raising events for local non-profit organizations, and other activities. She was even open to our suggestion of hosting play readings. There will be a kiosk for the Wildlife Care Network in the tasting room and local art and products. So, when this little gem of a tasting room opens… don’t miss it [rumors are there was already a soft opening...]. La Lieff Wines tasting room will have a life of its own and you can be part of Andit.don’t forget to do a side-by-side tasting of the rosé wines. You won’t be sorry!

By Richard and Amanda Payatt, Special to VOICE GRETCHEN LIEFF saunters out of the front door of her Funk Zone tasting room in a pair of well-worn jeans and a Wildlife Care Network t-shirt. She sets down two glasses of rosé wine, each made in a very different style. We take a sip from each style and both nod with smiles. She explains that she wants to have the two styles for a good reason and concludes with a smile, “I hope it deepens the conversation about rosé wines.”

And the cost of goods fell 1.8 percent in July, the largest decline since the 2020 pandemic recession. These results show that it will take a concerted private-public effort to further tame our inflationary impulses if we want to slow down the Fed’s rate increases and return economic growth to the plus column for the rest of this year.

The U.S. producer price index fell 0.5 percent in July, the Labor Department said today. That’s down from a 1.0 percent jump in June and the first negative monthly number since April 2020. Core PPI prices are up 5.8 percent from a year earlier, down from 6.4 percent in June.
Nine container ship carriers dominate the Asia to North America imports, which the U.S. importers would have no control over without more government oversight and regulation. It’s one more example of the U.S. government’s role in keeping us growing during the trying times Americans are currently experiencing.
“The passage of the law has already had an impact, say exporters,” continued Goodman, “prompting ocean carriers to make more containers available at West Coast ports. It has also changed perceptions about the commission’s once-cozy dealings with the carriers.”
BOTH THE RETAIL CONSUMER PRICE INDEX (CPI) and wholesale inflation index for raw materials—the Producer Price Index (PPI)—fell in July. Since the PPI feeds into retail prices, it’s a sure sign that inflation is on the wane.Themore important U.S. CPI index was unchanged in July, the Labor Department said Wednesday, compared with the 1.3 percent gain in the prior month. The rate of inflation in the 12 months ended in July retreated to 8.5 percent from a 41-year high of 9.1 percent in June. Energy prices were the main culprit, up 33 percent YoY (energy bar in BLS graph). But gas prices have been plummeting of late. The nationwide average price for a gallon of gas dropped to $3.99 on Thursday, according to AAA. That’s down 20 percent from the mid-June high, and it’s the first time the average has dipped below $4 since early March.Both indexes brought the annual increase of core products without volatile food and energy fluctuations back into the five percent range, which is still high, but causing markets to breathe easier, because it substantiates that most of the price pressure was due to short term events, like a return to more normal activity from the COVID pandemic, which was a 100-year event, and the Ukraine war’s effect on energy and food shortages. There are still supply-chain shortages as other countries begin to catch up to the surging demand by American consumers to buy anything and everything available in goods and services. And there is some good news on that front as well. The Biden administration signed into law the Ocean Shipping Reform Act last June, which is engineered to bolster the maritime commission’s authority to regulate shipping that goes into American ports, which is dominated by foreign carriers. “The law directs the agency to bulk up enforcement while creating systems that make it easier for aggrieved shippers to file complaints,” said Peter Goodman of the NY Times, noting, “It increases the agency’s funding 50 percent by 2025.”

In fact, governments working together to fix the energy and food shortages worldwide would have the greatest effect on inflation and return all of us to less trying times.
Is the Inflation Scare Over?
The closely watched “core” CPI measure of inflation that omits volatile food and energy rose 0.3 percent in July, down from a 0.7 percent gain in the prior month. The 12-month rate remained steady at 5.9 percent.

The Coast Guard is the principal Federal agency responsible for maritime safety, security, and environmental stewardship in United States ports and inland waterways, along more than 95,000 miles of coastline and on the high seas. The over 50,000 members of the Coast Guard operate a fleet of 259 Cutters, 200 fixed and rotary-wing aircraft, and over 1,600 boats. The roots of today’s Coast Guard were established in 1790 by Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s founding fathers and the first U.S. Secretary of the Treasury. Hamilton proposed the formation of the Revenue Marine, a seagoing military service that would enforce navigation laws and collect tariffs. The first Coast Guard Academy established in 1876, then called the Revenue Cutter School of Instruction, was held aboard the two-masted topsail schooner Dobbin. The present day Coast Guard Academy, located in New London, Connecticut, graduated its first class of women one hundred years later in 1976. Lucky for Santa Barbara that it did! Many thanks, Captain Sandstedt for the long awaited interview and my tour of the Blackfin Hopefully the Coast Guard will have another ‘Open House’ very soon!

“The Coast Guard’s mission is for national maritime security but is essentially search, rescue, and enforcement here in Santa Barbara and along the coastline,” she Theexplained.Captain’s journey to Santa Barbara began in her hometown of Chicago and Wheaton College, where she was part of the military on campus. After moving to North Carolina, she strolled by a Coast Guard recruitment office and the die was cast. “As I was in the military in college, this seemed like a good fit. I chose to go to Officer Candidate School and establish my career as an officer.” Sandstedt explained that under the auspices of the Navy, the Coast Guard had its own screening for commanding officers to which all candidates were subject. After serving on two ships, the Blackfin became her first command. “A captain in the Coast Guard is designated by the size of the ship, senior officers having command of the largest ships in the fleet. I’ve landed in such a great place for my first command and have enjoyed being part of the maritime as well as the entire Santa Barbara community.”
By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE INALLY! After what seems like the hundred years (well… at least as long as I’ve been writing this column!) I’ve sought an interview with a Real Live Person in the Coast Guard... and I’m here to announce that it actually happened! The Coast Guard (and the Harbor Patrol) are an essential part of our community’s marine safety and security and a resource for ocean related information. Docked at the heart of the Santa Barbara harbor, those vessels are the guardian angels of our maritime community. The Coast Guard Cutter, the Blackfin, was of special interest to me after multiple inquiries to Professor Google about its mission… naturally, in hopeful anticipation of an interview and of being invited aboard!

July 23rd, was my lucky day! All it took to be welcomed aboard the Blackfin was the Navy’s version of a nautical “Open House” for the entire Santa Barbara community to come down to the harbor from 10 to 3pm for a “meet and greet!” Needless to say, I grabbed my notebook and pen and headed toward the harbor’s main dock where the Cutter is moored. The harbor walkways, shops, and restaurants were crowded with visitors as is often the case on weekends. By the time I wound my way to the main dock, the Saturday Fish Market had just closed shop. At the end of the dock a canopy had been set up with the Coast Guard insignia and an information table, and nearby stood The Real Live Person dressed in Navy blues I had long sought to interview. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that Christina Sandstedt was not only a member of the Coast Guard but the Captain of the Blackfin! “I’ve been captain here for 13 months now,” she smiled, “although the Coast Guard itself has been in Santa Barbara since the year 2000.” Captain Sandstedt explained that this was her third vessel and her first command.
Restoring the Great Arch
Santa Barbara Courthouse Legacy Foundation
The CLF is now focused on raising funds to begin Phase II of the conservation effort, which will address damage to the sandstone blocks, failed mortar joints, and loss of ornamental stone features on the Great Arch. Legacy Foundation
In 2004, a small group of committed citizens came together and formed the Santa Barbara Courthouse Legacy Foundation (CLF), dedicated to the conservation and restoration of this magnificent building for generations to come. The CLF ensures all conservation, restoration, and restoration projects meet federally mandated standards for a National Historic Landmark.
The Santa Barbara Courthouse is one of the most distinctive courthouses in America and its Great Arch is in need of restoration. Completed in 1929, in the Spanish Colonial Revival style, the building is a functioning courthouse, an iconic symbol of the Spanish heritage of Santa Barbara, a focal point for community festivals, concerts, weddings, and public events, and a landmark attraction for nationwide and international tourism. Because of this need, the Courthouse Legacy Foundation is now seeking financial support for an ongoing project to restore the Great Arch entrance into the Courthouse and its Sunken Gardens. Doorways under the Arch lead to the Courthouse lobby, active courtrooms, County offices, the famed Mural Room, and the Clock Tower. The Great Arch and Clock Tower are the most photographed features of the building. Over the years, the Great Arch has suffered weathering and deterioration. A Comprehensive Conditions assessment of the Courthouse identified a number of restoration requirements for the Arch. Cracks and erosion in the sandstone masonry and cast-stone carvings and sculptures, have led to water infiltration and damage to stone and cast-stone features on the Arch. A previous attempt, at an unknown time in the past, to protect the stone and castings with a clear coating, has actually resulted in discoloration and further erosion of these features. There is also a potential danger that some pieces may fall onto public spaces. The ultimate goal of this project is to completely restore the Arch to its distinctive appearance as the signature entrance to a designated National Historic Landmark building and an iconic symbol of the Spanish heritage and identity of the city of Santa Barbara. In 2020 EverGreene Architectural Arts, Inc. performed the sophisticated work of removing the degraded stone coating that was causing deterioration of the Great Arch. They conducted a multi-step analysis for best methods of treatment and followed Federal standards for preserving a National Historic Landmark. Their Phase I cleaning activity was completed on time and on budget for $175,000.

A talented and varied group of creatives, Santa Barbara Studio Artists all maintain working studios in the area along with exhibiting their work. The annual tour offers the chance to venture in and see the seat of their creativity.“Mystudio is part of Clay Center, which is becoming a creative hub for the Santa Barbara arts community of ceramic artists, sculptors, and painters.

After a 35-year career in electrical engineering he returned to art fulltime, focusing on charcoal, ink, and watercolor drawings, and waterbased clay for his sculptures, which he casts himself in bronze.
