Santa Barbara Historical Museum Exhibit is

Tip of theIceberg

of Extensive Old Spanish Days Collection


By Julia McHugh, Special to VOICE

ROJECT FIESTA! now on view at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum represents just a fraction of the Museum’s extensive collection of items related to Old Spanish Days. The exhibit spans the first 50 years of Fiesta and features beautifully restored costumes, shawls, posters, artwork, artifacts, historical photos, and some surprises. New this year are handmade masks from the 1950s and 1960s on loan from the Profant Foundation, along with one of 47 scrapbooks recently transferred from Old Spanish Days to the Museum.

Harwood revealed more about the collection, her personal favorites, items still needed for an Old Spanish Days’ 100th anniversary exhibition in 2024, and more when she answered a few questions for VOICE readers.

One of the historic Fiesta scrapbooks

Harwood: We held the exhibition outside in 2020, including a carriage on loan from the Carriage and Western Art Museum, with enlargements of our Fiesta postcard collection and other items that could be outside. Last year, because the Historical Parade was cancelled, we recreated it in our gallery using life size models of horses dressed in elaborate saddles, with costumed mannequins portraying the Spirits, Saint Barbara, flower girls, and dignitaries riding in authentic carriages. McHugh: How else does the Museum participate in Fiesta?

Harwood: We have a popup exhibit of Fiesta history in the De la Guerra Plaza Mercado, and we also sell Fiesta related merchandise. But you can then walk a block down to see the complete exhibit, which is free. The Museum Julia McHugh: Do you have The steer head stuffed by Edward and the Museum Store are also open until Borein that was on view during 2021. a favorite item in the Fiesta 7pm during 1st Thursday of Fiesta Week. collection? Recordings of several talks related to Old Spanish Days Dacia Harwood: It has to be the head of a steer which was history are available on our website in the first Fiesta parade and then later stuffed by local artist (www.sbhistorical.org) for free. Go to our Calendar section, Edward Borein. We had it on view last year, click on Events, and there’s a link at the top of the page. and is the most unusual thing we’ve put in the exhibit.

“It’s the tip of the iceberg,” noted Museum Director Dacia Harwood, “and our collection just continues to grow.”

McHugh: What did the Museum do for Project Fiesta! during the pandemic years?

McHugh: What else is special to you?

Harwood: Some of my favorites are among our more than 200 costumes and items of clothing. A couture gown made with Christian Dior lace designed for Fiesta is on permanent display, along with Dwight Murphy’s black and gold velvet Fiesta suit. Some of the clothing came from historic families like the De la Guerras, and actually pre-date the Fiesta celebration. But many costumes were made at home by just doctoring up suits and dresses by hand. I love how heirlooms are passed along the generations and that traditions continue to this day. McHugh: Are there items that you still want to add to this collection?

Handmade masks from the 50s and 60s on loan from the Profant Foundation

Harwood: Our collection is vast, but there are some gaps. We plan to go all-out for a major Fiesta exhibition for the hundredth anniversary. For example, we have Fiesta posters from 55 years, including the very first poster from 1924. Many more are still to be acquired. We’d also like to have more film and home movies from past festivals. People with possible donations should contact the Museum’s library at archivist@sbhistorical.org

Beautiful Posters and Fiesta attire! Project Fiesta! A History of Old Spanish Days is on view through September 11, 2022 at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum located at 136 East De la Guerra Street. Hours are Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from noon to 5pm, and Thursdays from noon to 7pm. www.sbhistorical.org

Old Spanish Days’ Historical Parade Returns

¡Viva El Desfile Histórico!

PREADING FIESTA JOY with vibrant dancers, historic carriages, and hundreds of skilled equestrians, El Desfile Histórico (the Historical Parade) unites thousands of locals and visitors in celebrating our varied community. Now, after two years without a parade and months of ongoing preparation, Santa Barbara is ready for the return of El Desfile Histórico along its new Cabrillo Boulevard route from 12 to 2pm on Friday, August 5th.

As the new route offers limited parking options, free trolley shuttle service will be available to transport parade attendees from the 900 block of Chapala St. and the 1100 and 600 blocks of Anacapa St. Commuters will be dropped off at State and Yanonali Streets, one block away from the parade route.

“We just want to make sure everybody has the opportunity to come out and celebrate because it is a completely new Fiesta this year and a new parade route,” shared Miller.

“It takes a lot of donations and a lot of volunteer hours to make this El Desfile Histórico leads The parade’s historic carriage and wagons are housed at the whole operation work,” said Carriage Museum year-round with Los Niños de las Flores OSD Pageantry Division spreading cheer and Spirit of Fiesta Tara Mata dancing front Chief Tony Miller. “There’s a lot of build up to just one week; and center along Cabrillo Boulevard. Historic carriages will it almost seems like it just magically, automatically happens carry local government leaders, and representatives of area and everyone’s like, ‘It’s Fiesta!’ and it kind of comes out of businesses and nonprofits. David Borgatello of MarBorg thin air. But, it’s a lot of work, obviously, that goes unseen Industries will serve as parade Grand Marshal in honor of leading up to it.” his continued support of Fiesta and the community. Planning for El Desfile Histórico, as well as Fiesta overall, begins shortly after each August’s festivities end. The Santa Barbara Carriage and Western Art Museum also plays the important role of maintaining the historic carriages that star in the parade. Faced with a shorter route along Cabrillo, organizers knew the 2022 parade would need to be scaled back. Rising fuel prices added to the matrix as many participants who travel from across the nation decided not to attend, naturally cutting down the number of entries. Groups and organizations interested in participating in the parade fill out entry applications on the OSD website by early summer. Traditionally, the parade includes 75 to 100 groups and approximately 700 horses. On Friday, just over 50 groups, largely from the regional area, will march along Cabrillo. “We tried to hold down the amount of people that entered, but it seemed like it worked out that most of the people that wanted to be a part of it, were able to be part of it,” explained Miller. “And then we’ve had some people fall out and some people that were

Charro groups will also return, riding just over 300 horses by the waterfront in traditional garb. Posse groups such as the SB County Sheriff ’s Mounted Unit will ride among them. Beautiful, community-crafted floats will also return, including a float dedicated to the 2020 and 2021 OSD Presidentes and Spirits of Fiesta.

and her family will ride her float. Father Larry Gosselin, OFM, of Old Mission Santa Barbara has participated in Fiesta for the past eleven years. He shared with VOICE that the Mission’s float “represents the invincibility of a community that’s bound together in a family of love.” He added of the parade, “It gathers people together and we truly celebrate who we are as a community.” The parade generates a sense of community among its hundreds of volunteers, including OSD team members, announcers, float constructors, Horsemen’s Rendezvous volunteers, and approximately 30 marshals to direct the parade’s traffic. Volunteer sign-ups are ongoing via the OSD website. “We need as many people from the community as we can get,” said Miller. “It’s an all-volunteer operation.” El Desfile Histórico will begin at the west end of Cabrillo Boulevard, proceed along the beach to Calle Cesar Chavez, then go back down Cabrillo. www.sbfiesta.org

Free Trolley Shuttle

Services Promote Parade Accessibility Partnering with the City of Santa Barbara and the Downtown Organization, Old Spanish Days will run free trolley shuttle services from 10am to 5pm from the downtown to the parade route area.

28th Annual Sadako Peace Day


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

NDERSTANDING THE VALUE OF ACTIVE REMEMBRANCE IN PREVENTING FUTURE TRAGEDIES, the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation will host its 28th Annual Sadako Peace Day to honor the victims of Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and other wars. Free and open to the public, the event invites community members to experience poetry, music, speakers, and moments of reflection at Montecito’s La Casa de Maria from 6 to 7pm on Tuesday, August 9th.

The ceremony is named for twelve-yearold Sadako Sasaki, who folded over a thousand paper cranes while sitting in her hospital bed in accordance with a Japanese legend claiming doing so would grant her a wish. Having developed what ultimately proved fatal radiation-induced leukemia from living in Hiroshima during the 1945 atomic bombing, her powerful act of hope has inspired people worldwide for generations. Sandy Jones, NAPF Director of Communications, emphasized the value of reflecting on the history of the attacks and our society’s understanding of them so that future nuclear warfare is prevented.

Hoag has been a regular gallery exhibitor since 2014.

“In our busy lives, the Sadako Peace Day commemoration is a moment to slow down and feel,” said Jones. “And to understand that we must do what we can so that nuclear weapons are never again used.”

A Time for Remembrance and Reflection This marks the first year since 2018 that Sadako Peace Day will be held in the Sadako Peace Garden at La Casa de Maria. NAPF’s new President, Dr. Ivana N. Hughes, will serve as the program’s keynote speaker and discuss her work in the Marshall Islands and advocating for nuclear abolition. NAPF Board Chair Frank Bognar will open the program. The evening will also feature poetry readings by Santa Barbara Poet Laureate Emma Trellis, Poet Laureates emeriti Sojourner Kincaid Rolle and Perie Longo, and Franciscan priest Father Larry Gosselin. Local singer-songwriter Hal Maynard and Sandy Jones will perform two original songs. Bob Nyosui Sedivy, a komusō monk, will play the shakuhachi, an ancient fiveholed flute.

House Judiciary Committee Approves Rep. Carbajal’s Measure to Prevent Deportation of U.S. Servicemembers’ Parents


N A LANDMARK STEP TOWARD PROTECTING SERVICEMEMBERS’ FAMILIES, the House Judiciary Committee has approved and advanced the Protect Patriot Parents Act. Authored by Representative Salud Carbajal, the measure would let parents of service members apply for a green card.

Estimates indicate that there are as many as 80,000 undocumented parents and spouses of former and active duty U.S. servicemembers living nationwide. The measure was inspired by the stories of one of these individuals, Juana Flores.

El Comité Judicial de la Cámara de Representantes aprueba la medida del representante Carbajal para evitar la deportación de los padres de los militares estadounidenses


Juana was deported in 2019 even though she had lived in the United States for 30 years and is the mother of Sergeant Cesar Flores, who was actively serving in the U.S. Air Force. Ultimately, Juana was allowed to return home following support from Carbajal, additional community leaders, and members of the public. “Not too long ago, I got to know a Central Coast mom by the name Juana Flores. Juana was cruelly ripped away from her family despite the fact that her son is active duty in the Air Force,” explained Rep. Carbajal. “As a veteran and immigrant myself, I find it unconscionable that someone could step up to voluntarily serve in the military and be willing to sacrifice their life for our country only to have their family torn apart. The Protect Patriot Parents Act will help shape an immigration system that is fair, keeps families together, and recognizes the positive contributions immigrants and their families make to our communities.” The measure is now available for consideration by the full U.S. House of Representatives. www.carbajal.house.gov

N UN PASO HISTÓRICO HACIA LA PROTECCIÓN DE LAS FAMILIAS DE LOS MIEMBROS DEL SERVICIO, el Comité Judicial de la Cámara aprobó y promovió la Ley de Protección de Padres Patriotas. Escrito por el representante Salud Carbajal, la medida permitiría a los padres de los miembros del servicio solicitar una tarjeta verde. Las estimaciones indican que hay hasta 80,000 padres y cónyuges indocumentados de ex miembros del servicio militar de EE. UU. y en servicio activo que viven en todo el país. La medida se inspiró en las historias de una de estas personas, Juana Flores. Juana fue deportada en 2019 a pesar de que había vivido en los Estados Unidos durante 30 años y es la madre del sargento César Flores, quien estaba sirviendo activamente en la Fuerza Aérea de los Estados Unidos. Finalmente, a Juana se le permitió regresar a casa gracias al apoyo de Carbajal, líderes comunitarios adicionales y miembros del público. “No hace mucho tiempo, conocí a una madre de la costa central llamada Juana Flores. Juana fue cruelmente arrancada de su familia a pesar de que su hijo está en servicio activo en la Fuerza Aérea”, explicó el representante Carbajal. “Como veterano e inmigrante, me parece inconcebible que alguien pueda dar un paso adelante para servir voluntariamente en el ejército y estar dispuesto a sacrificar su vida por nuestro país solo para que su familia sea destrozada. La Ley de Protección de Padres Patriotas ayudará a dar forma a un sistema de inmigración que sea justo, mantenga unidas a las familias y reconoce las contribuciones positivas los inmigrantes y sus familias aportan a nuestras comunidades”. La medida ya está disponible para la consideración por parte de la Cámara de Representantes de los Estados Unidos en pleno. www.carbajal.house.gov

Ambulance Service Contract Request for Proposals Released


OR THE FIRST TIME IN ITS 50 PLUS-YEAR HISTORY, Santa Barbara County’s exclusive ambulance service contract will go to a public procurement. At the direction of the Board of Supervisors, the Santa Barbara County Emergency Medical Services Agency (SBCEMSA) has announced the release of the first Request for Proposal (RFP) for the contract. The bid process is expected to conclude with an award in November of this year. The new contract will start on March 1st, 2024. The ambulance contractor will provide emergency medical care and transport to the County’s residents and visitors. This RFP emphasizes clinical care, following a nationwide trend to focus on patient-centered metrics. Since faster response times are not generally associated with better patient care, the RFP focuses on the Triple Aim approach – patient experience, population health, and reducing system cost. This RFP process incorporated the feedback from over 60 EMS stakeholders and partners, which was collected during a 2018 EMS System Review. In addition to this input, SBCEMSA solicited feedback from the public and local providers in September 2021 and released a draft proposal in November 2021 for potential bidders to provide comment. Based upon the draft’s feedback as well as the Santa Barbara County 2018 EMS System Review, SBCEMSA worked with consultants from Fitch & Associates to develop an RFP designed to allow for both public and private organization bidders, with a focus on clinical performance. www.countyofsb.org/2024/EMS-Agency

Ingrid Law’s


By Daisy Scott / VOICE


LAYING OFF OF THE ANXIETIES THAT SURROUND GROWING UP WITH WIT AND A BIT OF MAGIC, Savvy by Ingrid Law reminds readers of the value of friendship in difficult times. Published in 2008 and followed by two sequels, Scumble and Switch, Savvy follows Mibs Beaumont, a girl on the brink of turning 13 years old as she discoveres her “savvy” — the unique power all Beaumont family members develop when they reach teenagedom. A chapter book best suited for the third grade and up, it is currently included on the Santa Barbara County Education Office’s Battle of the Books reading list.

Days before her 13th birthday, Mibs’ father falls into a coma from a horrible car crash. Left with the neighboring preacher’s wife and her children, Mibs and her siblings grow increasingly anxious about what will happen when she discovers her savvy. After all, her brother who can control weather accidentally caused a hurricane on his 13th birthday. azon tesy of Am Photo cour

Once her savvy kicks in, Mibs realizes that it may help her father, motivating her to stow away on a Bible salesman’s truck and rush to her father’s side. A wacky adventure

through the American midwest follows, as Mibs, her siblings, and friends learn more about each other and growing up. At its core, Savvy is a true coming-of-age story, using the concept of savvy as a metaphor for puberty. Law adroitly writes Mibs as a stubborn and awkward protagonist, making her relatable to both young and older readers. As Mibs and her siblings confront their father’s accident, larger themes of fear and loss emerge, lending this quirky tale a profound seriousness. The concept of fear moves through the book as Mibs begins to understand that everyone, regardless of age, carries their own anxieties with them, from the seemingly self-assured 16 yearsold neighbor to a middle-aged Bible salesman. Readers are ultimately left understanding the importance of extending empathy to all individuals, and utilizing their own “savvy,” whatever that may be, to make a positive impact on those around them.

Mission Santa Barbara Recognizes JoAnn Cota and Joan Cota For Dedicating Over 60 Years of Service


WO EXTRAORDINARY LOCAL WOMEN, JoAnn Cota and Joan Cota, were honored with a celebratory reception hosted by Old Mission Santa Barbara last week for working at the Mission for 65 and 67 years, respectively.

Upon being recognized, both JoAnn and Joan voiced surprise at time passing so quickly. Over the years, their favorite part of working at the Mission was just that: coming to work together every day and getting to meet people from all over the world. This included the Queen of England, who visited in 1983. JoAnn and Joan watched as the royal entourage brought bloodhounds through the Mission before Queen Elizabeth entered. They also watched as she planted a tree in the Mission cemetery. The duo has also witnessed many social changes at the Mission. When they started working there in September 1955, women were not allowed to enter the Mission garden, where the Mission’s tour route now starts. As they weren’t permitted in the back, a friar would bring them coffee in the afternoons. JoAnn and Joan would also climb on their office desk to look through the window to watch the friars walking and praying in the garden. The pair were also not originally allowed to wear pants to work, only skirts or dresses. JoAnn Cota and Joan Cota

Additional memories include

JoAnn Cota, Father Virgil, and Joan Cota

hosting the friars in their homes, making them enchiladas and drinks, and letting the friars help with the dishes after dinner. The pair fondly remembers the many friars they have worked alongside, including Father Basil Kelly, Father Virgilio, and Father Virgil Cordano. JoAnn has lived in Santa Barbara County her entire life, marrying Edwin Cota in 1953 and having two sons and one daughter. She now has seven grandkids and 18 greatgrandkids. Joan moved to Santa Barbara from Evanston, IL in 1945, becoming JoAnn’s sister-in-law after marrying her husband’s brother, James Cota, in 1962. Joan’s daughter, Theresa Cota Pote, also works in the Mission shop, and is celebrating 40 years of service.

Music Academy Festival Orchestra

There’s something about the French!

N FINE MUSICAL FORM ALL SUMMER, the Music Academy Festival Orchestra has come together as an ensemble of superb peers. Under a host of world-famous conductors, the ensemble has quickly acquired a delicately honed and carefully balanced arsenal of orchestral color, imagery, and flat-out thrilling finesse in performance.

dynamic contrasts as they were intended – unexpectedly thrilling. Denève, a large man, was in mesmerizing control of all things, including minutia. The third movement, Allegro – Allegro vivace – Allegro, for example, was extraordinarily re-examined and codified on several levels by the conductor, while the last movement, Allegretto – Allegro vivace, particularly the fugue section, served up a satisfying sonic lush out in his hands, despite not having a single memorable tune.

Review by Daniel Kepl / VOICE

The pleasure of hearing the full orchestra in all its sonic glory last Saturday at the Granada Theatre, especially considering its well-deserved imprimatur The Music Academy Festival Orchestra led by Masetro Stéphane Denève this summer for gorgeous romantic orchestral sound, was enhanced not just in dollops, but ladles the Third is nevertheless worth at least occasional dusting off of crème fraiche by guest conductor and French music specialist, for its rich orchestrations, if not its currency in 1936 European Stéphane Denève.

Determined to find and sensibility that puzzled and satisfied, simultaneously. something to save in the chassis, the conductor spruced up the Sergei Rachmaninoff ’s Symphony No. 3 in A minor, Op. 44, undercarriage, replaced some spark plugs and chrome, and composed near the end of the composer’s life in 1935-36 opened found value in his re-tooling of the work, à la française.

After demonstrating a flair for Russo-French rapprochement with his Rachmaninoff interpretation, Denève let loose his inner Gaul for a magical performance of Maurice Ravel’s, Daphnis et Chloé Suite No. 2 (1913). The Second Suite is a pastiche of dance segments - Lever du jour, Pantomime, and Danse generale - from the fulllength ballet composed for Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes in 1912. From its mystical opening bars - animist warbling in winds intimating a panhellenic nature idyl - straight through to its triumphant Dionysian finale of shifting rhythms and irregular meters, the Second Suite is an imaginative tour de force for orchestra, with one of music’s most exhilarating endings – a sonic whirling dervish celebrating pagan love. The audience, quiet as church mice throughout the roughly 18-minute musical orgy, erupted in roars and hoots of delight after the last tsunami chord – an apt acknowledgement of an extraordinarily exhilarating performance.

Tech Meets the ‘30s


By Daisy Scott / VOICE

HEERS OF “LIFE IS A CABARET” rang throughout Hahn Hall when the Music Academy presented its Lehrer Vocal Institute Series performance of Hahn Hall: 1922-2022: An Original Cabaret last Thursday night. Featuring dazzling solo and ensemble performances by all of this summer’s talented vocal fellows, the evening transported audiences on a romantic, humorous, and sexy musical journey through time as the Academy showed off Hahn Hall’s new technological abilities. Directed by James Darrah and music director Craig Terry, Hahn Hall’s stage was transformed into a 1930s nightlife scene, complete with card-playing, a bar, and a rotating cast of piano fellows providing lively music. The

cherry on top of this creative vision was costume designer Molly Irelan’s skill, as she decked each fellow in old-fashioned suits, dresses, or undergarments befitting their character. Soprano Krista Renée Pape kicked the evening off with a playful, soaring performance of Gershwin’s Boy Wanted. Tenor Maximillian Jansen and mezzo-soprano Tivoli Treloar hopped onstage to welcome the sold-out audience, encouraging everyone to forgo traditional concert decorum by laughing, clapping, or cheering as they wished — after all, cabaret is about doing what makes you happy! Rather than following a narrative or the musical Cabaret, the concert highlighted the range of emotions explored through cabaret. Fellows captivated the audience with serious pieces, such as mezzo-soprano Joanne Evans’

Hughes also noted NAPF’s long tradition of inspiring artistic involvement in the movement for peace and organizing important community events, such as Sadako Peace Day, set for this Tuesday, August 9th. She is also looking forward to the Foundation continuing the Frank E. Kelley Lecture and the Evening for Peace. It also has plans for a new event, the inaugural luncheon Women Waging Peace, which will take place this November. “I am very excited about these special opportunities to meet many community members and to continue to bring these issues to a broader public. Only through greater engagement can we hope to bring our lofty goals to reality,” she shared.

HE LOCAL FOLKS WORKING ON THE INTERNATIONAL STAGE, as well as at the local level, to end nuclear weapons proliferation and nuclear war have landed a star in their new team leader, Dr. Ivana Nikolić Hughes. She stepped into the role of President of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation on Monday, August 1st.

We look forward to the new energy she will bring to the Foundation and its goal of ridding the world of nuclear weapons.”

“For 40 years, the Foundation has been a beacon of light in a dark world that has seen crisis upon crisis with the threat of nuclear war

looming over the whole of humanity,” Hughes shared. “I couldn’t be more excited to advance the vision of a world free of nuclear weapons; my commitment to this vision is boundless. There is a gravity to the current moment of intertwined global crises that we must turn into an opportunity for creating a better world, one we will be proud to leave to our children and future generations.” Dr. Hughes sees the work ahead at the Foundation to lie in three main areas. “NAPF has a long and rich history of fighting for a world free of nuclear weapons, so in many ways my vision for the Foundation revolves around strengthening and reviving existing programs and initiatives. There are three areas of our programming that I am passionate about: work on the existing international treaties that focus on nuclear security, in particular the TPNW; outreach and assistance to impacted communities; and youth involvement.” Turning her focus to victim assistance in impacted communities she noted, “NAPF has a long history of working with Hibakusha, survivors of nuclear attacks on Japan, and Japanese peace and anti-nuclear organizations. NAPF also supported the government of the Marshall Islands (the site of U.S. nuclear testing) in filing Nuclear Zero lawsuits against the U.S. and other nuclear weapons states. These lawsuits were based on the premise that the nuclear weapons states have not been making enough progress on nuclear disarmament, as is their obligation according to Article VI of the NPT [Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons].” Hughes would also like NAPF to engage in working with communities in the Southwest “that have been devastated by both uranium mining and nuclear testing.” She continued, “Overall, the efforts to assist affected communities within and outside of the TPNW [Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons] will continue to be a big part of our work.” Engaging and inspiring younger generations to tackle this thicket of issues and move toward a world free of nuclear weapons will continue to be at the heart of the Foundation’s work. “Prior to joining NAPF I devoted my entire career to teaching and research, including for 14 years at Columbia University, where I have focused my efforts on undergraduate students,” Hughes shared. “My own experience teaching and discussing nuclear disarmament issues with them is that they simply need to learn about this and when they do, a fire is lit.”

Dr. Hughes graduated with Honors from Caltech in 1999, earning a B.S. in Chemical Engineering, and completing her senior thesis with Frances Arnold, the first American woman to win a Nobel Prize in Chemistry. In 2005, she earned her PhD from Stanford University in the laboratory of the National Academy of Sciences member Daniel Herschlag, in the Department of Biochemistry, and was an American Heart Association Predoctoral Fellow. While at Columbia, Dr. Hughes has been a University Senator and a member of several committees and boards. She is also the recipient of the Lenfest Distinguished Columbia Faculty Award, Provost Large Scale Teaching Award, Provost MOOC Award (co-recipient with David Helfand), and the Global Scholars Program Award (corecipient with Emlyn Hughes). “I have been interested in questions surrounding nuclear technologies - both nuclear weapons and nuclear energy - for more than ten years,” she explained. “A particular focus of my work has been the environmental - and therefore the human - impacts of nuclear weapons testing, most notably in the Marshall Islands, as well as a broader interest in nuclear disarmament education. My work in the Marshall Islands was directly inspired by the NAPF initiative on the Nuclear Zero Lawsuits, brought to the International Court of Justice, in 2014. Helping the world to understand the environmental impacts and the human suffering caused by this horrific nuclear legacy has been deeply meaningful to me.” This recognition of the contributions of those around her may be a long term trait. A colleague at Columbia’s K=1 Project, Pierre Cristofari, Professor of Astronomy at the University of Paris, said of Hughes, “Ivana has a unique ability to eliminate distance: whether talking to a Nobel prize laureate or a first-year undergraduate, she always provides undivided and benevolent attention. Among her numerous extraordinary capacities, this trait leads her to a very distinctive overview of any organization she has run or has taken part in. It also allows every member of her staff to feel highly supported, encouraged, and cared for.” With hope for the future, Hughes concluded: “NAPF has always been a non-partisan organization, attracting people from all walks of life to its mission. I look forward to continuing in this tradition. We want to bring people together, not set them apart. And I truly believe that a commitment to peace can do just that.” Welcome to Santa Barbara, Dr. Hughes! The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation’s mission is to educate, advocate, and inspire action for a just and peaceful world, free of nuclear weapons. The Nuclear Age Peace Foundation is a non-partisan, non-profit organization with consultative status to the United Nations. www.wagingpeace.org

Retail Sales Keep U.S. Growing


.S. RETAIL SALES REBOUNDED STRONGLY in June as Americans spent more on gasoline and other goods amid soaring inflation, which could allay fears of an imminent recession but not change the view that economic growth in the second quarter was tepid, if not slightly negative. Is it good enough to stave off a recession next year? Consumer spending drives almost two-thirds of economic growth, with retail sales half of spending. The post-pandemic spending spike has slowly subsided from a 100-mph speed aided by government subsidies to its present 60-mph cruising speed, as I said last week, still above average per the FRED graph. This depends in part on the inflation picture, of course, which will slowly subside as the supply-shocks diminish. Gas prices, for instance, have dropped more than 40 cents over the past month, which is a large part of the recent inflation surge.

Receipts at sporting goods, hobby, musical instruments, and bookstores also rose. Online store sales rebounded 2.2 percent. The annual CPI retail rate in the U.S. accelerated to 9.1 percent in June of 2022, the highest since November of 1981, from 8.6 percent in May and above market forecasts of 8.8 percent.


It was mainly energy prices that rose 41.6 percent, the most since April 1980, boosted by gasoline (59.9 percent), fuel oil (98.5 percent), electricity (13.7 percent, the largest increase since April 2006), and natural gas (38.4 percent, the largest increase since October 2005).

Reuters reports the nearly broad increase in retail sales last month was led by receipts at auto dealerships, which rebounded 0.8 percent after declining 3.0 percent in May amid shortages. Sales at service stations increased 3.6 percent. “Gasoline prices surged in June, averaging above $5 per gallon,” said Reuters, “according to data from motorist advocacy group AAA. Prices at the pump have since declined from last month’s record peaks and were averaging $4.577 per gallon in mid-July. Receipts at bars and restaurants, the only services

Inflation worries are still causing the whipsaw in financial market prices. So, how long can this surge in prices last, given the Ukraine war, China’s COVID problems, and the ongoing pandemic restrictions?

Concern about inflation eased in July alongside a sharp drop in gasoline prices over the past month, reports the University of Michigan consumer sentiment survey.

Consumer spending is keeping up with inflation to date, with personal consumption expenditures (PCE) still up 7.2 percent overall, 5.2 percent YoY without more volatile food and energy prices, which is causing most of the current inflationary spike.

Girls Inc. of Carpinteria Launches “Her Legacy” Campaign and Plan for Outdoor Courtyard


OLLOWING DONATIONS TOTALLING $350,000 FROM TWO DEDICATED COMMUNITY MEMBERS, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria has revealed its plans to establish its new Lynda Fairly Courtyard. $150,000 was donated by philanthropist and community leader Lynda Fairly, and $200,000 was contributed by an anonymous donor. The courtyard will be developed into an intentional mixed-use community space, complete with dedicated outdoor classroom areas and an interactive natural playground, in an environmentally conscious and meditative landscape. Fairly has also challenged Girls Inc. of Carpinteria to raise another $250,000 from other women philanthropists to expand and further compensate Girls Inc. staff. When this is achieved, Fairly will contribute an additional $100,000 to fund the “Her Legacy” investment opportunity, ensuring the organization’s programs will continue to grow and inspire generations of young women and girls. “I was raised by a single mom, and I know the need to help young women to become healthy, educated, and independent,” said Fairly. “Girls Inc. starts this process at a young age and encourages girls to believe in their futures.” All contributions will support Girls Inc. of Carpinteria’s efforts to attract and retain a qualified, caring and stable workforce by offering competitive wages and benefits. This will offer local girls the opportunity to build relationships with trusted, caring adult mentors. “The Lynda Fairly Courtyard will serve as an intentional, beautiful outdoor space where we will continue to cultivate our future female changemakers,” said Jamie Collins, executive director of Girls Inc. Carpinteria. “We are so grateful to Lynda for investing in our mission and inspiring other female leaders to be a part of this legacy – rightfully named Her Legacy. The funding will support our talented and dedicated staff and ensure

Concept plan for Girls Inc. of Carpinteria’s new Lynda Fairly Courtyard

that more girls and young women are given the space, mentoring and resources to thrive.” Gifts for Her Legacy are $25,000 or greater and funded by women or women-owned foundations. Donors will be honored with a naming opportunity in the new Lynda Fairly Courtyard. Donations will support Girls Inc. of Carpinteria’s part-time direct service staff, full-time coordinators and educators, and promote the organization’s efforts to create a resilient culture that remains felixble and responds to the community’s needs. www.girlsinc-carp.org

The 49th Annual

King Harbor Race a Success!

You might think that things down at the Santa Barbara Harbor might have taken a little breather after the annual (majorly successful!) Fiesta Cup Regatta, chaired by Santa Barbara Yacht Club member Jane Watkins, entered the history The King Harbor Welcoming Committee books a short couple of weeks ago. But Bottom row: Beverly Toole, Suesan Pawlitski, oh no! Completely undaunted, the Yacht Julie Hinkle, and Jo Sadecki Bridge: Gary Pawlitski and Dan Durbeck Club, along with the King Harbor Yacht Club, co-hosted the 49th annual King Harbor Race from Santa Barbara to King Harbor. One of the premier distance races, part of the SBYC Wilson series, 75 yachts from up and down the coast of California and neighboring states have reveled in the hospitality of the Santa Barbara and King Harbor Yacht Clubs. The off-shore race spans a distance of 81 nautical miles and, depending on wind and weather, the sailors normally reach their destination at the King Harbor Yacht Club in the LA area in several hours or, considering the distance and weather conditions, as long as an entire day.

HIS IS ONE OF THE COLUMNS THAT HAS MY HEAD SPINNING! There’s so much going on in Our Town that it’s hard to even stay afloat. Old Spanish Days is now well underway and the rerouted Fiesta Parade – the first after a couple of coronavirus restricted years - is to take place on Friday, August 5th followed by the Los Niños Children’s Fiesta Parade the next day. Judging from the crowds, the explosion of enthusiasm that can be seen on every street corner, restaurant, and venue is certainly a testament that partygoers near and far are anxious to join in Santa Barbara’s traditional Fiesta celebration. “Viva La Fiesta” can be heard throughout the city as the rich cultural heritage of Santa Barbara is being celebrated with music, dance, and traditional activities. But that’s not all, folks…

of the Yacht Club at the Palapa Bar. Local and King Harbor skippers and their crews socialized in the sand, after which they were invited to dine inside the clubhouse. On Friday, July 29th the race was on! This year, I understand, the winds took a portion of the weekend off, so the race was somewhat longer than anticipated. The return of the winds mid-race helped make the almost 100 nautical mile sail seem a bit less like a trans-Atlantic voyage! I don’t know about you, but to me that would take one hardy gang of motivated sailors and a lotta Red Bull!

At the conclusion of the race, the King Harbor Yacht Club hosted the competitors with their traditional welcoming party, followed by the awards ceremony and the presentation of the trophies. The 2022 overall winner was BOLT, a 68-foot Nelson Marck, a competitor from the Balboa Yacht Club. The page has turned on another successful King Harbor Race (and celebration)... but not one to miss a beat, the Yacht Club motors on with its yearly Catalina Cruise. Is this an action packed time of year in Santa Barbara, or what! Viva La Fiesta! Sigrid Toye volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project.

She loves all things creative, including her two grown children who are working artists. Send Harbor tips to: Itssigrid@gmail.com

In planning for the regatta much preparation and coordination is needed, especially due to the uncertainties created by the on and off again environment of the pandemic. This year’s race chairs Rob Miller from the Santa Barbara Yacht Club and Dorian Harris from the King Harbor Yacht Club - with the assistance of Race Director Brad Schaupeter worked hard over a longer period of time preparing for the live 2022 race with volunteers at their side. The Santa Barbara Waterfront Department planned dock assignments for the sailboats that needed mooring – not an easy job for a harbor as snug as our own. For the start of the race, a long-standing (at least a decade) Registration Committee staffed by Santa Barbara Yacht Club volunteers prepared the necessary instructions and information for the competitors, registered the participating boats, and ensured that the regatta, and the day, had a smooth start.

The start of the race was spectacular in the glistening mid-day sunlight. Always a “do not miss” event, this is one of the largest regattas to be launched from our harbor. Preactivities began Thursday, July 28th with celebratory libations, music, and fun in front

Restoring the Great Arch

Santa Barbara Courthouse Legacy Foundation 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. 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.

Restoring the Band Shell at Plaza del Mar Santa Barbara Foundation


Tuohy Foundation


Ann Jackson Family Foundation






A Stage For The Whole Community

Renovation of the Band Shell will revitalize Plaza del Mar for music, drama, dance, and celebratory events. As a public park, the City provides low-cost access for non-profit organizations that serve a broad cross-section of the community.

Project Partners And Funding

The PARC Foundation The Parks and Recreation Community (PARC) Foundation is partnered with the Santa Barbara Parks and Recreation Department to raise the funds needed to achieve Band Shell renovation. To make a donation to this exciting project, please visit the PARC Foundation website at www.parcsb.org.


All the funding needed to complete the project is $45,000.

A Parks and Recreation Department and Parc Foundation Project Established as a City park in 1899, Plaza del Mar was a favorite location for strolling and outdoor gatherings. The Plaza del Mar Band Shell, a designated City of Santa Barbara landmark, was constructed in 1919 to provide a venue for public concerts. Five thousand people attended the opening concert on May 4, 1919, which featured a 22-piece municipal band.


Scanto todonate donate Scan SOURCE to this project to this project ARPA

If all goes according to plan, the project will receive building permits by the spring of 2022. With construction scheduled to start in the summer of 2022, the Band Shell could be ready for a concert series as soon as this fall!
