Temporary Restraining Order Issued Against Buellton All Sport Fitness Center

P

ANDEMIC HEALTH ORDER VIOLATIONS have led to the closure of a Fitness Center in Buellton this week. All Sport Fitness Center will cease its indoor operations after receiving a temporary restraining order (TRO) from Santa Barbara Superior Court Judge Jed Beebe. Located in Buellton, this TRO follows All Sport’s continued violations of both state and county health orders. These orders prohibit gyms and fitness centers from holding indoor activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “The District Attorney’s Office remains committed to protecting public health and safety by enforcing state and local public health orders,” said Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley. “Compliance with these orders is essential to combatting COVID-19 in Santa Barbara County.” Leading up to the hearing, the City of Buellton’s code inspector and the District Attorney’s Office issued warnings to All Sport to act in accordance with state and county public health orders. Despite this, All Sport continued to host indoor operations. The Consumer Protection Unit of the District Attorney’s Office has filed a civil complaint, alleging that All Sport violated California’s Unfair Competition Law. Judge Beebe issued the TRO after a hearing on August 31st, and it will remain in effect until September 11. At that time, Judge Beebe will decide on the appropriateness of a preliminary injunction in preventing All Sport from violating public health orders while the case is pending.

The case is filed under People v. Jayda, Inc. et al Case No. 20CV02717. For information on the most recent Santa Barbara County health orders, visit https://publichealthsbc.org/.

SB Beaches Closed to Stationary Activities over Labor Day Weekend

F

OLD UP YOUR BEACH CHAIRS AND UMBRELLAS — Santa Barbara County Public Health Department (SBCPHD) has announced that over Labor Day weekend all stationary activity on Santa Barbara beaches will be barred. The restrictions will go into place September 4th at 12:01am, and run through September 7th at 11:59pm. “Reduced disease transmission is critical in the fight against COVID-19,” said SB County Health Officer Dr. Henning Ansorg. “We anticipate a high volume of visitors at our beaches during the Labor Day weekend, which will impede the practice of safe and necessary social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Santa Barbara County. Our community has remained diligent in their efforts and now is the time to protect all the positive outcomes we have accomplished.” As the SBCPHD specifically prohibits stationary activities, walking to and from the ocean for water sports and exercising on the beaches will be allowed. The prohibited activities include, but are not limited to, standing, sunbathing, sight-seeing, picnicking, sitting, or lying on the beaches or the beach parkways. Similarly, items used for stationary beach activities like umbrellas, sand and beach toys, chairs, grills, and coolers are also banned. The SBCPHD Health Office Order also called for the closing of all Waterfront parking lots from September 4th at 2am to September 8th at 6am. The exceptions to this order will be Harbor Main, Stearns Wharf, and Launch Ramp.

Hollister Ranch Coastal Access Program Opens Third Public Survey

A

S A PART OF THE EFFORTS TO UPDATE THE HOLLISTER RANCH COASTAL 15 ACCESS PROGRAM PLANS, the state of California has opened its third public survey. Focused on gathering public feedback on HRCAP’s Objectives and Evaluation Criteria, this survey will inform any future plans proposed to allow public access to the shoreline of Hollister Ranch. “This process is proceeding quickly so it is important to make your opinions known now,” expressed Gaviota Coast Conservancy Executive Director Doug Kern in his statement announcing the survey’s opening. The|conservancy continues to be an active supporter of the At the Center of Santa Barbara’s Cultural Conversation www.VoiceSB.com HRCAP. HRCAP plans have been in the works for over 30 years, with the original propositions being made by the California Coastal Commission between 1981 and 1982. These plans proposed allowing for access to Hollister Ranch’s 8.5 miles of beach, with limits placed on the number of daily visitors due to environmental concerns. However, these plans never came to fruition. Adding to the delay was the vetoing of the 2018 attempt to pass bill AB 2534, which would have allowed funding for means of public access to Hollister Ranch shores. This veto was made on the grounds that the HRCAP plans need to be updated, leading to the series of surveys that are currently being opened to the public. This planning process is ongoing, but a 2020 timeline posted on the California Coastal Commission website indicates hopes for hearings and plan adoptions to take place in Spring 2021.

OST COVID GUIDELINES HAVE STRESSED THE 6-FOOT PHYSICAL DISTANCING RULE, with the idea being that the virus spreads through large droplets produced when we talk, cough or sneeze. Relatively heavy, these droplets tend to fall to the ground before they travel more than a few feet. “However we are having these outbreaks even when people are keeping this sixfoot distance, and especially indoors,” said Bjorn Birnir, the director of UC Santa Barbara’s Center for Complex and Nonlinear Science. More recent evidence suggests that Bjorn Birnir the virus also travels in smaller droplets and aerosols, which can linger in the air for hours. Birnir and his colleague Luiza Angheluta — a professor at the University of Oslo and currently a visiting researcher at UCSB’s Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics — decided to apply their expertise in fluid dynamics to COVID super-spreading events to understand how they might have happened. The crucial factor, they found, was air circulation. Their results appeared on medRxiv, the preprint server for health sciences, and are currently undergoing peer review. In late January and early February, ten individuals from three families all fell ill after having eaten at the same air-conditioned restaurant in Guangzhou, China on Chinese New Year. The cases all were linked to a single contagious customer at the restaurant. All the diners who came down with the infection Whatwediscoveredwas were seated in one section of thattheconcentrationof restaurant, thesedropletsandaerosols the which was served areactuallybuildingup by a single air conditioning unit. overtimeinaconfined Patrons at another space....Basically,our table close to the conclusionisthatthese infected person, superspreadersarenot but under the breeze of a different reallypeople,theyare AC unit, did not airconditioningand become ill. recirculatingairflowin The topic confinedspaces. Birnir studies seemed perfect – Bjorn Birnir for understanding what happened at the restaurant. He specializes in fluid dynamics and was working on a class of problems called Lagrangian fluid dynamics, which involves following a fluid’s flow. “This is exactly what you want to do with these droplets and aerosols,” he said. “You want to follow them, and you want to see where they go.” Fittingly, Birnir had just made significant progress in this domain in January. Fluid flow is random and irregular, so mathematicians don’t try to capture all the details. Instead, they take statistical averages of the total fluid flow over a period of time. This technique allowed Birnir and Angheluta to build a model of how the flow carries around particles, which are called “passive scalars” because they are carried by the flow, but don’t influence it. “What we discovered was that the concentration of these droplets and aerosols are actually building up over time in a confined space,” he said. This

contrasted sharply with the belief that infectious droplets were large and would just settle out of the air. After 15 minutes in an unventilated room the size of that section of the restaurant, a person anywhere would experience the same effects as if they had been sitting next to the contagious individual. “And in an hour, it’s four times what you would get if you were initially sitting next to the infected person,” Birnir said. Many people had assumed that air conditioning would mitigate this issue. Namely, that the combination of the AC filter and the intake of outside air would be enough to keep viral loads in check. But the researchers found that normal air conditioning only delayed the particle buildup in the restaurant by ten minutes, and decreased the one-hour exposure rate to 2.5 times what it would have been initially right next to the contagious person. “Basically, our conclusion is that these super spreaders Theairconditioningintherearsectionoftherestaurantallowed are not really people, they are air conditioning and thevirusparticlesfromcontagiousindividual(purple)torecirculateand recirculating air flow in confined spaces,” Birnir said. infectotherdiners(red)thatwereseatedinthatarea.

OULD IT BE THAT THE SEASONS are about to change once again? It seemed the heat of the last few weeks signaled a summer in high gear with beaches dotted with umbrellas, visitors strolling on the sidewalks and harbor walkways, and restaurants along State Street and Cabrillo Boulevard packed with happy diners. And now suddenly it’s … Labor Day? How is that possible? Clueless as I might be, Mother Nature definitely is not! The chill in the air that suddenly arrived was the first clue, not to mention the leaves on sycamore trees are beginning to don their Autumn colors. During my evening walks I’ve noticed that some have already fallen to the ground in anticipation of the coming season. Judging from last weekend’s huge crowds and those this Labor Day weekend, I’m in good company being astonished that a seasonal change is upon us! The good news is that last weekend I finally found a (legal) parking spot over the crowded weekend, even though every lot along the waterfront seemed completely full. How about that kinda luck? After the fog lifted I was finally able to get a full view of the Fall yacht regattas from the deck of the Yacht Club. Nearby was another racing fan perched on the railing, apparently also enjoying the view, although I suspect he might have had another motive, the goodies served to the on-deck diners. From his vantage point he was also able to scope out the crowds of visitors below sitting on the walkway walls and the strand noshing on take-out sushi or fish delights from the harbor’s restaurants - all potential donors. I’ve decided that seagulls are the smartest creatures on the planet: they fly, swim, walk, and wrap and unwrap packaging with the skillset of Amazon Prime! On the subject of our Labor Day weekend, summer’s end celebrants are here in Santa Barbara in vast numbers. Restaurants are full, the Funk Zone teeming with visitors, and State Street’s pedestrian zone packed with shoppers - truly a wonderful way to wave the summer months Adieu and to keep our local merchants happy. The County of Santa Barbara however, has issued restrictions as a reminder of the ever present coronavirus, closing all Santa Barbara area beaches to stationary activities from Friday, September 4th through Monday, the 7th. Stationary activities include sun bathing and beach parties, but not pedestrian access to and from the ocean for water sports or active physical activity. “We anticipate a high volume of visitors at our beaches during the Labor Day weekend, which will impede the practice of safe and necessary social distancing to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in Santa Barbara County,” stated Health Officer Dr. Henning Ansorg in a press release last week. “Our community has remained diligent in their efforts and now is the time to protect all the positive outcomes we have accomplished.” As much as I like to sit on the beach enjoying the panorama of the coastline and the Channel Islands that frame our horizons, I do feel the need to exercise caution during this busy end of the summer weekend by complying with the County’s mandate. Nonetheless, I wish everyone a happy four day holiday here in beautiful Santa Barbara and I look forward to the activities scheduled for Fall down at the harbor at the heart of the city. Stay tuned...

T A GLANCE, ONE WOULD THINK THE PHOTOS — SHOWING HUNDREDS OF MASKLESS YOUNG PEOPLE ON BALCONIES AND STREETS — were pre-pandemic. Yet these images, taken by University of California, Santa Barbara student Max Abrams, depict Isla Vista in the days after Chancellor Henry Yang asked students to avoid returning to the area. They show that despite Yang’s statement, and the Santa Barbara County Public Health Department prohibiting gatherings, Isla Vista party culture persists. “Although this is news, I don’t really think this is new,” said Abrams, who is the lead news editor for UCSB’s student newspaper The Daily Nexus. “People will always find a way to party out here, no matter what the consequences are.” UCSB is taking active steps to decrease

the number of students on campus this fall. Almost all classes will be held online, except for laboratories or classes needing in-person interaction. All indoor study locations are closed and no in-person events will be held. Yang also announced last week that on-campus housing will be reserved for students with “special circumstances.” He further implored students to not return to the Isla Vista area, citing COVID-19 concerns. “Since the beginning of August, our campus has been informed of more than 65 cases of COVID-19 among our students,” wrote Yang in his August 28th statement. “This number represents more than 60 percent of the COVID-19 cases in Isla Vista since March. The relatively high population density of Isla Vista and the crowded conditions in which many students live are contributing factors to this recent surge. We urge all of our students who can to avoid being in Isla Vista for fall quarter.” However, despite these efforts to limit Isla Vista’s population, students are moving back. According to fourth year UCSB student Karina Cota Fierro, this influx of people has contributed to the recent rise in partying. “I’m not sure if it’s freshmen who decided to move to IV because the dorms aren’t available or returning students, but it seems they care more about their ‘college experience,’ especially parties, than the virus and their own health,” explained Fierro, who lived in an off-campus Isla Vista apartment this summer. “It’s not because people who already lived in IV started feeling more confident, it’s people who are barely moving in.” Fierro also spoke to her experiences witnessing the area’s nightlife, and expressed that she has temporarily found alternative housing

Isla Vista Party Culture Rages On – Despite UCSB’s Requests for Students to Stay Away

outside Santa Barbara as a result of feeling unsafe. “IV is full of people wearing masks in the morning, but is hectic at night,” Fierro said. “There are crowds of people walking along the streets, going into rooms together, getting drunk at 2am and walking around at night.” Abrams knew that he had to bring Isla Vista’s party culture to the attention of UCSB and the greater Santa Barbara community. On the nights of August 28th and 29th, geared with a face mask and a long-lens camera, he set out to photograph Isla Vista’s party culture. Students on the street responded by screaming and yelling insults at him. “My goal going into this was really just to shed light on what was going on,” explained Abrams. “So I had really no goal to bring change or bring discipline to anybody, the only thing I wanted to do was bring attention.” Abrams published his images on The Daily Nexus website and social media, showing hundreds breaking SBCPHD’s guidelines on public gatherings. Throughout the summer, health orders have specified that all large gatherings, save for exemptions or sociallydistanced outside activity, are prohibited. Health Officer Order No. 2020-12.7, which went into effect August 31st, continues to uphold this. But that has not stopped Isla Vista. “I have heard from some folks that it seems like a lot of these houses that I took pictures of and that have been on social media for hosting parties are repeat offenders — the same houses are hosting the same parties,” said Abrams. Police officers from the Santa Barbara County’s Sheriff Office (SBSO) were present and monitoring the partying both nights Abrams went out. He heard a conversation between an officer and a young person about social distancing, and observed one of the parties dispersing after police arrived. Beyond that, he shared he did not witness further action to curb the partying. “There’s a massive lack of oversight, because you live in your own place with your own friends, you pay your own rent, off in this little — not even a town — a designated area with very few consequences and you can kind of do whatever you want,” said Abrams. “And that’s it, that’s the

way IV has always been. And right now it’s a blessing to the few who want to party, but a curse to the rest of the town who wants to stay safe.” The Isla Vista Foot Patrol has been advised to take an educational approach first when encountering parties, according to Raquel Zick, SBSO Public Information Officer. Beyond these efforts, there have been three instances of enforcement action taken against health order violations in Isla Vista since the SBCPHD began prohibiting gatherings. “The practice that the Sheriff’s office has employed throughout the COVID-19 pandemic is when we encounter situations like this that are a violation of the health order, our aim is to educate the public...with the goal of gaining voluntary compliance,” Zick explained. Beginning this weekend, there will be an increased presence of officers in the Isla Vista area. Zick added that local law enforcement is currently strategizing with UCSB, Santa Barbara City College, county officials, and landlords on addressing the partying issue. Andrea Estrada, UCSB’s Director of News and Media Relations, later elaborated on these ongoing plans. “SBCC and UC Santa Barbara are jointly sending messages to the residences for which violations have been reported, and we have been working with County officials regarding outreach to the landlords in Isla Vista,” said Estrada. UCSB has also provided students with a link to an online incident report form, where they will be able to report violations of public health guidelines to campus officials. These violations will be shared with the Office of Student Conduct, and students could face disciplinary action for violating the university’s Student Conduct Code. “The COVID-19 pandemic is a public health crisis, not a student conduct crisis, and we will continue to approach our work as an educational institution from this perspective. However, there are limits,” warned an August 27th email sent to UCSB students with the form’s link. To view all of Abrams’ photos, visit www.dailynexus.com.

Voucher Program at Housing Authority Offers Security During Pandemic

El programa de vales de la Autoridad de Vivienda ofrece seguridad durante la pandemia

NPRECEDENTED HOUSING ISSUES are being met head on at the Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara. With the pandemic causing job and income losses, both renters and landlords are finding relief in the programs provided by the Housing Authority. Six months into the COVID-19 pandemic, many Santa Barbara residents are bravely facing the strain of reduced work hours, furloughs, layoffs, job and income loss, not to mention a loss in federal unemployment aid and state benefits that have been exhausted. Many families are forced to downsize from two to one income in order to care for young children at home due to unaffordable day care or to manage their school age student’s online distance learning program. This economic downturn comes at a time when our residents are already stressed from coping with sky-high rents and a historically low inventory of clean, decent, affordable housing. These negative forces have bred a looming crisis as we enter a new month when rent is due and tenants, even though they are protected by an open-ended eviction moratorium, have no way to pay for mounting back rent. According to the PewTrust.org’s Stateline blog, “Housing advocates fear a surge in evictions and homelessness. An estimated 19 to 23 million renters risk being evicted by September 30th, according to the Aspen Institute.” “Eviction moratoriums, on their own, aren’t enough — they simply delay the inevitable as renters accrue debt and small landlords struggle to operate their properties without rental income,” Diane Yentel, president and CEO of the National Low Income Housing Coalition, told Stateline in an email. Eviction moratoriums, Yentel wrote, “must be paired with substantial and sustained rental assistance.” At least $100 billion is needed to keep renters stably housed during and after the pandemic, she said. The Housing Authority of the City of Santa Barbara (HACSB) is actively engaged in addressing these daunting circumstances through their landlord incentive program. The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is designed to attract, enroll, and retain rental property owners and property management companies who want to achieve an economic boost by keeping their units occupied with a steady revenue stream. Guaranteed, “pandemic-proof” rental income is just one of many landlord “perks” that come from being part of the HACSB Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. A few of the many other benefits include: $500 signing bonus for new landlords leasing up a Section 8 participant with a City issued voucher; Available Section 8 unit damage protection; reimbursement to the owner of up to $2,000 for unpaid unit damages, rent, and related court costs; Referral bonus of $100 to person referring a new landlord to the program (Section 8 participants not eligible); and a Dedicated Housing Authority staff to answer questions when a housing case manager is not available. “In a time when our health is intertwined with the need for the stability and security that comes from having a place to call home, our organization is working to ensure that individuals and families have the means to remain housed,” shared Rob Fredericks, HACSB Executive Director and CEO. “No one should have to worry about being displaced and made homeless because they have lost their job and income due to COVID-19. Our program is a three-way winning partnership between our organization, tenants that need and deserve to keep a decent roof over their head, and property owners who rely on sustainable rental income to maintain their property and livelihood. We encourage all property owners with available rental units to come forward, join us, work together to secure great tenants, and enjoy all the benefits of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.” “Often property owners and management companies are not aware that the qualification process for their property is straightforward and takes place in a timely fashion,” noted Skip Szymanski, HACSB Deputy Executive Director/Chief Operating Officer. “It takes just five easy enrollment steps.” Find the steps to apply and get approved online at: www.hacsb.org.

ROBLEMAS DE VIVIENDA SIN PRECEDENTES se encuentran de frente en la Autoridad de Vivienda de la Ciudad de Santa Bárbara. Con la pandemia causando pérdidas de empleo e ingresos, tanto los inquilinos como los propietarios están encontrando alivio en los programas proporcionados por la Autoridad de Vivienda. Seis meses después de la pandemia de COVID-19, muchos residentes de Santa Bárbara se enfrentan con valor a la tensión de la reducción de horas de trabajo, suspensiones, despidos, pérdida de empleo e ingresos, sin mencionar la pérdida de la ayuda federal por desempleo y los beneficios estatales que se han agotado. Muchas familias se ven obligadas a reducir de dos a uno los ingresos para cuidar a los niños pequeños en casa debido a que la guardería es inasequible o para administrar el programa de aprendizaje a distancia en línea de sus estudiantes en edad escolar. Esta recesión económica llega en un momento en que nuestros residentes ya están estresados por lidiar con alquileres altísimos y un inventario históricamente bajo de viviendas limpias, decentes y asequibles. Estas fuerzas negativas han generado una crisis que se avecina medida que entramos en un nuevo mes, cuando la renta se vence y los inquilinos, a pesar de que están protegidos por una moratoria de desalojo indefinida, no tienen forma de pagar el aumento del alquiler atrasado. Según el blog Stateline de PewTrust.org, “Los defensores de la vivienda temen un aumento de los desalojos y la falta de vivienda. Se estima que entre 19 y 23 millones de inquilinos corren el riesgo de ser desalojados antes del 30 de septiembre, según el Instituto Aspen.” “Las moratorias de desalojo, por sí solas, no son suficientes; simplemente retrasan lo inevitable a medida que los inquilinos acumulan deudas y los pequeños propietarios luchan por operar sus propiedades sin ingresos de alquiler,” dijo Diane Yentel, presidenta y directora ejecutiva de la Coalición Nacional de Vivienda para Personas con Bajos Ingresos, a Stateline en un correo electrónico. Las moratorias de desalojo, escribió Yentel, “deben ir acompañadas de una asistencia de alquiler sustancial y sostenida.” Se necesitan al menos $100 mil millones para mantener a los inquilinos alojados de manera estable durante y después de la pandemia, dijo. La Autoridad de Vivienda de la Ciudad de Santa Bárbara (HACSB, por sus siglas en inglés) participa activamente en abordar estas abrumadoras circunstancias a través de su programa de incentivos para propietarios. El Programa de Vales de Elección de Vivienda de la Sección 8 está diseñado para atraer, inscribir y retener a los propietarios de propiedades de alquiler y las empresas de administración de propiedades que desean lograr un impulso económico al mantener sus unidades ocupadas con un flujo de ingresos constante. Los ingresos por alquiler garantizados y “a prueba de pandemias” son solo uno de los muchos “beneficios” para los propietarios que provienen de ser parte del Programa de Vales de Elección de Vivienda de la Sección 8 de HACSB. Algunos de los muchos otros beneficios incluyen: bono de firma de $500 para nuevos propietarios que arriendan a un participante de la Sección 8 con un vale emitido por la Ciudad; Protección contra daños de la unidad de Sección 8 disponible; reembolso al propietario de hasta $2,000 por daños a la unidad no pagados, alquiler y costos judiciales relacionados; Bono por recomendación de $100 a la persona que refiera a un nuevo propietario al programa (los participantes de la Sección 8 no son elegibles); y un personal de la Autoridad de Vivienda dedicado para responder preguntas cuando un administrador de casos de vivienda no esté disponible. “En un momento en que nuestra salud está entrelazada con la necesidad de estabilidad y seguridad que proviene de tener un lugar al que llamar hogar, nuestra organización está trabajando para garantizar que las personas y las familias tengan los medios para permanecer alojados,” compartió Rob Fredericks, Director Ejecutivo y CEO de HACSB. “Nadie debería tener que preocuparse por ser desplazado y quedarse sin hogar porque han perdido su trabajo e ingresos debido al COVID-19. Nuestro programa es una asociación ganadora de tres vías entre nuestra organización, los inquilinos que necesitan y merecen mantener un techo decente sobre su cabeza y los propietarios que dependen de ingresos de alquiler sostenibles para mantener su propiedad y sustento. Alentamos a todos los propietarios con unidades de alquiler disponibles a que se unan a nosotros, trabajen juntos para asegurar excelentes inquilinos y disfruten de todos los beneficios del Programa de Vales de Elección de Vivienda de la Sección 8.” “A menudo, los propietarios y las empresas de administración no son conscientes de que el proceso de calificación de su propiedad es sencillo y se lleva a cabo de manera oportuna,” señaló Skip Szymanski, director ejecutivo adjunto/director de operaciones de HACSB. “Solo se necesitan cinco sencillos pasos de inscripción.” Encuentra los pasos para solicitar y obtener la aprobación en línea en: www.hacsb.org.

EconomicVOICE Joblessness to Increase This Fall? By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE / “Popular Economics”

T

HE INITIAL CLAIMS FOR UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE CURVE HAS FLATTENED, rather than continuing to decline as the U.S. economy opens. Why? The coronavirus infection rate hasn’t declined, in a word, and studies are showing that consumer fears of COVID-19 are hurting the economy more than government decrees to combat the virus. There were a seasonally adjusted 1.06 million new claims this week, and initial claims have been hovering around the one million marker for three weeks. The question is when will it decline further, indicating more hiring. But new research posits that may not be happening soon. The National Bureau of Research (NBER) just put out a Working Paper entitled Consumers Fear of Virus Outweighs Lockdown… showing that fear of the effects of COVID-19 outweigh the government restrictions on business operations in causing the “steep drop in business activity.” This is while CDC director Robert Redfield recently warned in a WebMD interview that America is bracing for “the worst fall, from a public health perspective, we’ve ever had.” He feared that when the second or third surge in the pandemic hits (depending on who’s counting) with the fall flu season, unemployment might rise again, maybe to levels not seen in recent history. We are still at a 10.2 percent unemployment rate, and next Friday’s August unemployment report might not show improvement in the rate, but may even worsen. “By comparing counties with and without restrictions, the NBER researchers conclude that only seven percentage points of the 60 percentage points overall decline in business activity can be attributed to legal restrictions,” said their public summary of the report. “Most of the decline resulted from consumers voluntarily choosing to avoid stores and restaurants.” And average daily deaths haven’t yet declined from more than 1,000 per day since July and the summer openings. So, any lifting of those restrictions will not have much effect until consumers feel safe enough that the COVID-19 pandemic is under control. In fact, the researchers’ counter-intuitive conclusion is that lifting lockdowns could

have the unintended effect of discouraging consumer spending (which drives 70 percent of economic activity these days), “if repealing lockdowns leads to a fast enough increase in COVID infections and death.” Retail sales rose 1.2 percent in July, the government said. Economists polled by economists had forecast a two percent advance. Receipts have slowed from a 8.4 percent increase in June and a record 18.3 percent gain in May when the economic rebound began. In other words, consumers may be seeing the writing on the wall as we approach the cold season. There are other more heartening signs that fall economic growth could surge. Real PCE spending rose by 1.6 percent in July. The combination of the July gains and the upward revisions to May and June puts real spending in July eight percent above the Q2 average, which guarantees a very large contribution to Q3 GDP from the consumption component. The consensus is that GDP growth should spring back some 26 percent from its 32 percent drop in Q2. That could mean an end to the current recession that officially began in February, but no assurance there wouldn’t be a repeat unless consumers feel safer than they do today. What’s the alternative if consumers still live in fear that COVID-19 hasn’t been controlled, and an effective vaccine developed that can protect 300 million plus Americans? Is anyone listening?

A Leap of Faith By Staci Caplan, SBAOR President

T THE BEGINNING OF THIS YEAR, I asked how your real estate dreams were coming along. Everything has changed since then, although one thing remains – the importance of home, especially now – as a sanctuary, where we have learned to structure our lives in new ways. We have noticed how our homes function – or not – and have had plenty of time to spend at home to mull it over. Have you been thinking of downsizing – letting go of a property more suited to another time, another purpose? Or do you and your loved ones need more space? Have you been looking online at the available properties, looking for that “perfect” replacement? Unless you have cash ready to go, you most likely will need to sell in order to buy, perhaps with your REALTOR orchestrating a concurrent closing, with proceeds from your sale being wired in to close on the new house. If you haven’t found that house that makes you want to move, it’s hard to take that leap of faith to put your home on the market first, and trust that the right property will come along. But in today’s market a contingent offer – contingent upon selling a property first – just won’t make the cut. Especially one in which the sale of the prior property has not yet begun. The Staci Caplan very strongest offer with a home to sell would be one listed, in escrow, and with all contingencies released. And yes, it is a leap of faith, but it sets in motion the decision to get your property sale-ready, and to get your ducks in row before house hunting (in so many virtual ways, and with COVID-compliant guidelines) so that when the right one comes along, you will be ready to make a solid offer. The sale of your home can be contingent upon a replacement property – your “safety net” – so that you can be sure to find your next home before signing off on the sale of your current home. Your REALTOR can guide you through the process and make the transition of selling and buying as seamless as possible. Yes, it can be a lot of work to get a property ready for sale, but so much better to be prepared before you find your next dream home, so that when you find it you will be ready to make a realistic offer. Call your REALTOR® today to make a plan of action, and to find out what your home is worth in today’s ever-changing market. Contact the Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS® at www.sbaor.com for the virtual open house directory.

JUST WEAR IT! - You know what IT is...

A plaque was unveiled Sept. 2nd at the Santa Barbara Harbor at the Lost at Sea memorial site, with the names of the 34 people killed when the 75-foot commercial diving vessel CONCEPTION caught fire Sept. 2nd, 2019. It was off of Santa Cruz Island. The National Transportation Safety Board report on the tragedy will be out next month. https://keyt.com/news/ santa-barbara-s-county/2020/09/02/special-plaque-createdfor-the-conception-memorial-site/

Electric bike thefts and attempted thefts are ON THE RISE. Three suspects stopped at one shop.

WINDOW BARS are going up in a stylish way. One suspect faces a felony. Some bikes also often stolen out of yards and garages. The back story and a top lock is shown here: https:// keyt.com/news/crime/2020/08/28/ two-electric-bike-thieves-stopped-insanta-barbara-but-others-very-activeon-the-central-coast/ Remembering the 34 who died in the CONCEPTION BOAT FIRE one year ago near Santa Cruz Island. A special rock memorial was unveiled in a virtual ceremony at the Santa Barbara Harbor. https://keyt.com/news/santa-barbara-scounty/2020/09/01/santa-barbara-commemorate-one-yearanniversary-of-conception-boat-fire/

A “September to remember” your face coverings! JUST WEAR IT as many of my FB followers are showing me with their pictures. Some say it’s becoming fashionable and fun to put on their many masks. Don’t leave home without it. (Send me yours!)

POPULAR and TRENDING! ELECTRIC BIKES sales in motion faster than ever. Non-electric bikes also in big demand with a waiting list in some places. https://keyt. com/news/topstories/2020/07/05/ electric-bikes-ofsanta-barbaraseeing-surge-insales/

Heading out today? JUST WEAR IT. You know what IT is. The numbers go down when the masks go on. This ongoing reminder has so many people sending me pictures of their masks, artist creations, messages and verification that it is not too hard to wear a mask, keep your distance from everybody but your closest, trusted group, and wash often. (This is a great day to send me your mask picture!)

The Santa Barbara Bowl and Arlington Theatre in Santa Barbara lit their buildings in red, Tuesday night, along with many performing arts sites impacted by COVID-19 financial losses. #SaveLiveEvents #RedAlertRESTART #SBBowl Donate: sbbowl. com/2020Shortfall

This is the CORN MOON rising over the Santa Barbara Channel. It gets its name from the Native Americans, according to the Farmers Almanac. Time to harvest corn. (Although I have seen it three for $1.00 in the stores for about two months.)

“Masks do not have to be PERFECT to be effective.” - Dr. Henning Ansorg Santa Barbara Health Officer. These photos show it’s easy and colorful to wear them. (Send yours. You might be featured!)

Marcia Burtt Gallery: Grandeur

Nature’s Sublime: Experiences and Reflections Transcending Into Art

T

By Michelle Tahan / VOICE

HERE HAS NEVER BEEN A BETTER TIME THAN NOW to appreciate the beauty of nature around us. While some choose to spend their time visually meditating on the vastness and wildness of nature, others are lucky to get a peek into their perspectives. Grandeur, exhibited online through October 11th by Marcia Burtt Gallery, provides viewers with a curated collection of breathtaking artwork that appreciates the vastness and wildness of nature, all created by a group of talented local artists and associates. “This exhibition springs from the feelings most of us

experience these days of being suppressed and separated from nature. We want so much more than our little rooms!” related Marcia Burtt, Director of Marcia Burtt Gallery about the exhibition. Grandeur is a reference to the concept of “the sublime,” that arose in the mid-1700s, referring to the sense of awe that humans experience in the presence of nature. Each of the artists’ work in Grandeur emanate from this deep appreciation, bringing to the canvas a sense of tranquility, peacefulness, and spirituality that cannot be put into words. “Inspiration comes from seeing what’s around me. The more I paint, the more I am able to see. Standing in front of the easel, intently looking, peels away the layers of vision until we painters feel we are looking at the divine,” Burtt shared. For the exhibit, local artists Marcia Burtt, Patricia Doyle, Marilee Krause, Susan Petty, Robert Abbott, and Bill Dewey are joined by Erling Sjovold (Virginia), Randall David Tipton (Oregon), Michael Ferguson (Washington), Ann Lofquist (Massachusetts), and Anne Ward and Ian Roberts (Los Angeles). All except Dewey, a photographer, work in painterly media

including watercolor, pastel, acrylic, and oil. Burtt’s Ascending Shadows in acrylic showcases the top of mountains kissing the sky in a romantic and dreamlike perspective. Michael Ferguson’s Cliffy in acrylic showcases ocean water crashing against a cliff with a fascinating use of colors. Bill Dewey’s photograph, Channel Reflections, is surreal and calming, capturing the ocean’s boundless size and enchanting colors at sunset. “Time spent looking, so greatly intensifies the ability to see, that driving home from a day of painting, I practically sob as I look out the windshield, realizing that I’m unable to grab it all,” Burtt confided. When even those who intently analyze and absorb nature find it difficult to capture it all, and during this time when we may feel disconnected and alone, opening our eyes, hearts, and minds to the outdoors can remind us of our place in this Sublime world. Sharing and appreciating artwork reflecting nature is a way to escape, or perhaps, find connection and peace.

Community News Santa Barbara Participates in “Forward Into Light” Campaign

S

Photos by David Gala

ANTA BARBARA JOINED THE NATIONWIDE WOMEN’S SUFFRAGE CENTENNIAL COMMISSION’S “FORWARD INTO LIGHT” CAMPAIGN honoring the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment on August 26th. Named for the historic slogan “Forward through the Darkness, Forward into Light,” this celebration consisted of illuminating landmarks in purple and gold, the colors of the women’s suffrage movement. In Santa Barbara, participating landmarks were the Santa Barbara Historical Museum, El Presidio de Santa Bárbara State Historic Park, and Casa de la Guerra, which also projected the 19th amendment’s text. To further celebrate women’s right to vote, local art galleries Sullivan Goss and Rondo Studio also projected a video depicting photos and propaganda from the women’s suffrage movement in their front windows. Created by Jonathan PJ Smith, Kym Cochran, and Tracy Beeler, the video remains available for viewing on “The Environment Makers” YouTube channel.

HEN IT BECAME APPARENT THAT NOT EVERY STUDENT IN THE CARPINTERIA UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT (CUSD) would have access to the technology necessary for online learning, Westerlay Orchids knew it had to help. As part of Westerlay Orchids’ annual Carpinteria Education Foundation, Inc. (CEF) Fundraiser, all of the profits raised from retail showroom sales August 31st to September 5th will be donated to giving technology resources to children in need. “Along with a deep commitment to environmental sustainability, we pride ourselves on impactful community outreach,” said Westerlay Orchids Owner and President Toine Overgaag. As Southern California’s largest commercial orchid provider, this marks the third year Westerlay Orchids will give back to the community through the CEF fundraiser. Its 2020 goal is to match last year’s total of $18,000 in donations. Through directing funds toward giving children access to necessary technology, Westerlay Orchids hopes to make sure that no student falls behind this fall due to a lack of resources. Once the fundraiser ends, CEF will provide families on a need basis with reliable internet, devices, and more. “We would not be where we are today without a strong local network behind us. This community’s success is our success - we both grow and thrive when we work together - and CEF is doing a great deal to ensure that Carpinteria’s next generation gets the support and resources they need during this extremely tough time,” said Overgaag. www.westerlayorchids.com / www.sites.google.com/carpedfoundation.org/cef/home

MTD Transitions to Using All-Electric Chevy Bolts as “Relief Vehicles”

I

N AN IMPORTANT STEP TOWARD IMPLEMENTING CLEANER ENVIRONMENTAL PRACTICES, Santa Barbara’s Metropolitan Transit District (MTD) has begun using fourteen all-electric 2020 Chevy Bolts as a part of their non-revenue services. Thanks to support from Southern California Edison (SCE) and grant funding from Santa Barbara County Air Pollution Control District (APCD), MTD has also installed fourteen electric vehicle chargers in order to support the use of these electric cars. “I’m really excited to announce our first Chevy Bolts that we’ve introduced to our fleet of relief vehicles and we’re thrilled with the partnership with the Air Pollution Control District to get this project done,” said MTD General Manager Jerry Estrada. The electric vehicles will be used predominantly as “relief vehicles” in order to transport MTD bus operators and employees to and from buses and shifts. Each car is white, and has “Santa Barbara MTD” clearly printed in blue on the sides. MTD currently has ten of the vehicles available for use, with the remaining four on their way. Before this transition to electric transportation, MTD used gasoline-powered sedans for their non-revenue service needs. By transitioning to utilizing these 2020 Chevy Bolts in these daily operations, MTD will noticeably reduce their emissions and environmental impact. All of the cars’ ChargePoint Level 2 electric vehicle chargers are located in MTD’s Terminal 1 yard. Before their installation, SCE’s Charge Ready Program ensured that this location was well-equipped for this new technology. This was accomplished through the program’s covering electrical upgrade and infrastructural costs, as well as providing partial rebates for each new electric charger. Santa Barbara County APCD also supported this effort by distributing grant funding to MTD. A part of the district’s Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Grant Program, this funding went toward MTD paying for the fourteen vehicle chargers. “I’m very happy to be here today in this partnership to expand the use of electric vehicles through our region to serve the needs of MTD,” expressed ACPD Executive Director Aeron Arlin Genet in MTD’s YouTube video introducing the cars to the community.

To view MTD’s video about the new electric vehicles, visit the Santa Barbara MTD YouTube channel. More information about MTD and their service schedules, visit https://sbmtd.gov.

Los ensayos comienzan el 21 DE SEPTIEMBRE • ¡Registre a su hijo HOY! Cuando Sing! se conectó en linea, seguí a mis dos niños entusiastas y vi la alegría que era para ellos conectarse con otros a través de la música. Estoy tan impresionado con la forma en que el grupo fue dirigido de forma remota, y lo bien que se trató a los niños de una manera muy personal y de forma profesional, enseñándoles mucho más allá de las notas.”

Nir Kabaretti Director musical y artístico de la Sinfónica de Santa

El programa coral de Music Academy of the West para la comunidad del condado de Santa Bárbara

Now in its third season, Sing! is designed to empower young people, from 1st to 8th grade, to communicate with confidence, empathize with others, and encourage creative thinking. Sing! will help children learn about their own personal history through music and provide an opportunity to connect with others through the joy of singing.

Presented by The Music Academy of the West’s children’s choral program for the Santa Barbara County community Sing! Children’s Chorus

Concert Choir

Remote Rehearsals & Performances

In addition to the Sing! Children’s Chorus, students interested in more challenging repertoire are also encouraged to audition for the Sing! Concert Choir. This additional commitment includes Saturday rehearsals from 10 am -11:30 am. Those accepted are expected to perform in both ensembles.

Every Tuesday, 3 PM to 7 PM Every Saturday, 10 AM to 6 PM De La Guerra Place at State Street

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sing! Children’s Chorus now offers online rehearsals five days per week over Zoom, from 3:30 pm-5 pm. Rehearsals begin MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 21, and participants are required to attend a minimum of two rehearsals per week. Choristers work with program director Daniel Newman-Lessler and choral directors Christine Hollinger and Erin McKibben. Students will also participate in virtual concerts, recording themselves from home for mixed and mastered performances to be streamed online for friends and family to enjoy.
