We truly do care. By Sara Miller McCune

We should all care. Two years ago, at this time, COVID-19 was simply an outlier, something that seemed to be impacting “others” and not destined to alter life as we all know it. Some 24 months ago, life did change. For business owners. For politicians. For children. And it put our teachers to the test. But this wasn’t one they could study for, this was a fly-by-the-seat-ofyour-pants situation. And time and time again, through one variant after another, they’ve aced this endless quiz. And they’re exhausted. But they keep showing up, refusing to give up on our youth.

And I’m here to say something quite simple: We care. It’s such a simple phrase, but it’s one that we hope becomes a communal rallying cry to shower our educators with a little bit of love. There are some 1,500 staff members with the Santa Barbara Unified School District that continue to show resolve that has never been required of a school district. Which is why it warms my heart to see SBUSD partner with the Santa Barbara Education Foundation (SBEF) to start the “We Care” campaign, one that will kick off a series of support actions under the same campaign name. But, today, I want to focus our collective hearts on supporting our staffers. SBEF and SBUSD are already putting bold actions into play — every staff member has received a “We Care” card, where they can ask for literally anything they want up to $25. Want a gift card to Renaud’s? Done. Want movie tickets? Done. Want an Amazon gift card? Done. I’ve never seen something like this — personalized gifts on a mass scale. It’s unheard of, and I’m grateful for the effort. Even more amazing? Many staffers are donating their gift cards to colleagues — a selfless action, but one that should not come with any surprise. And, no, these are not gifts for their classrooms, they are for personal use.

If you want to help visit: sbefoundation.org/we-care or email Rebecca Benozer at rebecca.benozer@sagepub.com

And going beyond the gift, SBEF also worked with Jersey Mike’s to cater a teacher appreciation luncheon at every school—free of charge.

That’s what this community is all about, banding together in tough times and in good times, but always having each other’s proverbial backs. Jersey Mike’s didn’t have to do this, they chose to do it. And I know the SBEF could use more donors, albeit worldwide companies or the mom-and-pop shops that are the spine of Santa Barbara. The SBUSD staff has not wavered in the face of one of the worst health crises of any generation, willing to adjust with little notice to continue to put our children first. Some 20 district staffers even recently went through Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) mental health training with SBEF, all in

the name of making sure that our children get the attention they need. For the next few months, let’s make sure we do the same for them. Thank you for all that you do, teachers, support staff, and administrators, we are in your debt.

Vincent –

An Intimate Exploration of an Artistic Icon


Review by Daisy Scott / VOICE

POWERFUL, HEARTFELT TRIBUTE TO ONE OF HISTORY’S GREATEST ARTISTS, Vincent exemplified theater’s potential for communal reflection and celebration. Directed by Brian McDonald, and co-produced by the Santa Barbara Museum of Art and the Ensemble Theatre Company on March 20th, the one-man play starred Charles Pasternak portraying Vincent and Theo van Gogh. Combining factual information with a brother’s poignant commentary, viewers experienced a comprehensive examination of Vincent’s life, art, and love. This production was the latest in a series of community partner events celebrating SBMA’s exhibition, Through Vincent’s Eyes: Van Gogh and His Sources. As attendees filtered into the sold-out Mary Craig Auditorium, the air filled with anticipation only a highly-celebrated name like Vincent van Gogh can generate — and Pasternak delivered on all accounts. Set a week after Vincent’s death, Theo van Gogh chokingly

SB County Invites Community to Test Internet Access and Speed


O SUPPORT THE DEVELOPMENT OF A COUNTYWIDE BROADBAND STRATEGIC PLAN, community members are invited to participate in the internet needs assessment survey and speed test campaign launched by the Broadband Alliance of Santa Barbara County (Alliance) this week. This campaign is a part of the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments (SBCAG) effort’s with the Alliance to better understand local internet needs and availability, as well as direct funding toward projects that will support affordable, high-speed internet access. “The COVID-19 pandemic brought to light what many residents were already unnecessarily enduring, the lack of reliable and affordable access to [the] internet,” said SBCAG Board of Directors Vice-Chair Jenelle Osborne, mayor of the City of Lompoc. “The broadband survey and speed test is vital to our efforts to advocate for fast, flexible, affordable, and reliable internet service for all residents and businesses in our county.” Through the campaign, community members can take a speed test on a personal computer or laptop at home, work, or wherever they most use the internet. They can also self-report internet needs, identify regions with poor or no internet service, and report where internet access is unaffordable. Data collected will include a user’s location, internet speed, and monthly internet cost, with an option for anonymous participation. The survey and speed test is available in English and Spanish.

Responses are requested by May 31st. To participate, visit www.sbcag.org/broadband Individuals without internet access can call SBCAG at 1-805-961-8902

explained that he was too overwhelmed to properly eulogize his brother at his funeral. He then launched into an intimate account of Vincent’s final ten years, reading snippets from his letters from Vincent and offering impassioned commentary. Through its script penned by actor Leonard Nimoy, viewers learned of Vincent’s initial desire to be a minister and serve poor mining families. At Theo’s urging, he later pursued art and moved to France. There, he developed the style that secured his modern fame — yet, as Theo lamented, he also faced illness, rejection, and ultimately, suicide. The script beautifully paired widely-known information with personal details, including Vincent’s failed romances, allowing a resonant and rounded image of the artist to emerge. Currently, Pasternak serves as the Designate Artistic Director of the Santa Cruz Shakespeare theatre company, and will assume the role full-time next year. This familiarity with Shakespearean acting shone through his performance as he performed a dynamic, 70 minutes-long monologue. As Theo, Pasternak used wry smiles and humor to celebrate his brother’s stubbornness, genius, and capacity for love. In a climactic moment, he explained to the audience that society asks too much of its artists; emphasizing that if an artist makes the world a better place, then people should not care if they follow social conventions. In short, Pasternak masterfully portrayed a brother fraught with grief and awe at his brother’s spirit. However, when recounting a specific quote or scene, Pasternak portrayed Vincent himself. Sometimes he used an item onstage, such as a scarf or paintbrush, to indicate the shift. Yet the real skill of these moments derived from Pasternak’s ability to seamlessly shift his voice and mannerisms to transform into the more energetic, passionate Vincent. The performance’s emotional weight was further heightened by the set, which paired a stage filled with antique furniture and art supplies with a presentation screen. Throughout the play, images of Van Gogh’s art were projected onto the screen, visually punctuating Pasternak’s ardent speech. As Theo paused to process his grief, a montage

Feeling anxious, fatigued, depressed, or just experiencing isolation challenges?


Reaching into the depths of our unconscious mind, we are able to find the resources needed to remain calm, feel inner peace, and even find joy in the midst of the chaos in our lives and the world. In-person or on-line sessions.

Hypnosis can help.

Montecito Bank & Trust’s 30th annual Anniversary GrantsTM reception honored nonprofits


By Megan Orloff, Special to VOICE

RANTS TO LOCAL NON-PROFITS were the centerpiece to the celebration of Montecito Bank and Trust’s 47th anniversary. The annual Anniversary Grants program was started in 1993 by the Bank’s late founder, Michael Towbes, who wanted bank associates to have a say in the direction of the Bank’s corporate giving and to celebrate the exceptional volunteer service they give back to Central Coast communities.

In recognition of the 30th annual Anniversary Grants Reception, the Bank awarded grants of $3,000 to each of the ten local nonprofits instead of the traditional $2,000. The recipients were all hand-selected by Bank employees after they campaigned, rallied, and voted for the organizations that mean so much to them. Recipients also received a short promotional video showcasing each organization’s extraordinary work. In addition, our friend Mark Whitehurst and Voice Magazine have agreed to continue their generous donation of a half page ad about each organization that will run in Voice Magazine for one week during the month they are spotlighted.

“We always look forward to celebrating the Bank’s anniversary with this event, but this year is extra special as we are also celebrating 30 George Leis, President & COO, Montecito Bank & Trust; Derek Swafford, VP, Community Banking years of Anniversary Grants Sales Manager, Montecito Bank & Trust; Chris Harris, Board President, Alpha Resource Center; and getting together in-person Marc Sucher, Board Member, Alpha Resource Center; Joshua Weitzman, Executive Director, Alpha again!” shared Janet Garufis, Resource Center; and Janet Garufis, Chairman & CEO, Montecito Bank & Trust Chairman & CEO. “Despite the continuing presence of a global pandemic, in 2021 our associates dedicated more than 5,400 hours serving on boards, teaching financial literacy and cybersecurity curriculums, and volunteering with organizations throughout our community. I can think of no better way to honor our Bank’s anniversary than by recognizing our associates – the heart of our bank – and the organizations that mean so much to them. I am so proud of the work our teams do each and every day, and am grateful for the work this evening’s recipients continue to do throughout our communities.” Jennifer Oakley, Mesa Branch Manager, Montecito Bank & Trust; George Leis, President & COO, Montecito Bank & Trust; Lindsey Leonard, Executive Director, Alzheimer’s Association; and Janet Garufis, Chairman & CEO, Montecito Bank & Trust

Founded in 1975, the bank celebrated its 47th anniversary on March 17, 2022 and operates eleven branch offices in Santa Barbara, Goleta, Solvang, Montecito, Carpinteria, Ventura, Camarillo and Westlake Village. Montecito Bank & Trust has a history of unwavering corporate philanthropy in the local communities it serves, annually donating over $1.5 million dollars and volunteering over 5,400 hours to nonprofit organizations in Santa Barbara and Ventura counties. montecito.bank Christine Garvey, Montecito Bank & Trust Board Member; Angela Krablin, Montecito Bank & Trust; Michael Shanklin, Executive Director, kidSTREAM; Anne Towbes, and Suzi Schomer, Montecito Bank & Trust

Santa Barbara Symphony


KRAINIAN COMPOSER MYROSLAV SKORYK’S Melody for Strings, with its tender, hauntingly elegiac folk-like melody, was added to the Santa Barbara Symphony’s concert pair at the Granada last weekend in tribute to the ongoing heroic fight by the Ukrainian people to keep their independence. It was performed by the Symphony, in addition to the printed program featuring guest artist, organist Cameron Carpenter.

Soaked metaphorically in Ukraine’s blood and history, Melody helped all in the room to reflect on, and be in the moment with, Ukraine’s existential struggle. Special guests Tetiana and Stepan Kisilevich, who had escaped the war zone two weeks earlier, were in the house Saturday night to watch their daughter, Myroslava, play the piano part in the Saint-Saëns Organ Symphony No. 3, which brought the concert to a rousing close. Interestingly, the two main works on the program, selected by conductor Nir Kabaretti long before COVID and the invasion of Ukraine, nevertheless suited perfectly, the present historical circumstance. Francis Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, Strings and Timpani in G Minor (1938) while light and Parisian in so many ways, also has its dark side; the impending World War and the death of Poulenc’s lover (most agree), composer Pierre-Octave Ferroud. Camille Saint-Saëns’ stunning Organ Symphony No. 3 in C Minor (1886) has its own sub-basement of grief, the death of both his infant sons in 1878, a loss that haunted, with gossamer melancholy, the composer’s remaining compositional output.

Guest Artist Organist Cameron Carpenter

1886 at the height of his career. Considered one of the greatest organists of his age, a virtuoso pianist, and composer, his enormous and technically complicated Symphony No. 3 is more a sprawling tone poem, than four-movement symphony. Conducting from memory, Kabaretti turned in a stellar performance. The orchestra, most of whom having played this glorious war horse on several prior occasions, clearly enjoyed themselves, though the tough bits, as always, were exhausting. Cameron Carpenter, utterly still and pensive when not playing, sprang into action as the score required, giving the piece its sonic boom audiences love, while also managing to sprinkle improvised embellishments throughout, including what sounded like a completely improvised cadenza. Splendid! Daniel Kepl has been writing music, theatre, and dance reviews or Santa Barbara publications since he was a teenager. His professional expertise is as an orchestra conductor. For more reviews by Daniel Kepl visit: www.performingartsreview.net



Presented in collaboration with the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s Through Vincent’s Eyes: Van Gogh and His Sources and with Sonic Boom! as its marketing hook, last Saturday’s concert welcomed a house brimming with anticipation.

“I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again,” Camille Saint-Saëns said about his Organ Symphony No. 3, composed in



Cameron Carpenter’s approach to the work - a trance of razor-focused delicacy examined each chord with scholarly care, particularly the dissonant ones, eliciting their secret beauties, like cracking open the interior of a crystal geode. Improvising embellishments here and there, Carpenter stamped his unique personal imprimatur on the piece. A treat. The Santa Barbara Symphony under Kabaretti’s elegant baton, created both velvet and ominous sound textures, all within Poulenc’s clever conceit of a gigantic French Overture.


Francis Poulenc’s Concerto for Organ, Strings, and Timpani in G Minor (1938) is in seven sections, played in one musical arc. A work of sublime coloration, and not so subtle dissonance (for a reason), the composer uses his 20th century harmonic palette to express apprehension at the approach of World War II, as well as his profound melancholy (the composer almost went into the priesthood) at the loss of composer Pierre-Octave Ferroud. A leader of the movement known as Les Six, this work, while doggedly tuneful and straightforward in its way, is nevertheless colored in tears, and tempered by an impending, if still distant storm.


Guest artist, organist Cameron Carpenter, did not disappoint, opening the concert with a solo, Bach’s Prelude and Fugue in E-flat Major BWV 552 (St. Anne - 1739). Sitting at the console of his newest traveling electronic organ, a magnificent beast planted stage right in front of the orchestra with phalanxes of speaker towers arranged along the back wall of the orchestra shell above and behind the players, Carpenter’s intensely focused and personal interpretation of this monumental construction, based on the mysticism of the Holy Trinity was, well, mind boggling. Taking the art of embellishment to heaven and back again, Carpenter improvised, noodled, tweaked, and toggled around Bach’s written superstructure at every opportunity, spinning a cotton candy dervish of Baroque performance practice. Exactly.

(alt-J is, from one angle, a keystrokebased band name) and classic rocking ingredients.


For The Sake Of Her Continuing Song: Texan singer-songwriter and new bluegrass star Sarah Jarosz pays an eagerly-awaited return visit to the Lobero on Wednesday. The now four Grammy awards on her mantle include one for her 2020 album World on the Ground, produced by John Leventhal, and an album from the all-star new folk trio I’m With Her, in cahoots with Sara Watkins and Aoife O’Donovan, both of whom have found a happy performance home and destination point at the Lobero (O’Donovan performs in the venue on April 12th).

“The T DOES THE MUSIC LOVER’S HEART only vision GOOD to realize that, as of Saturday’s we had was concert from British indie sensation alt-J to write alt-J and Portugal.

Grosvenor would have made his Santa Barbara debut in a CAMA-hosted recital at finding its hybrid sound of electronic/computer tools the Lobero. Alas, COVID altered the face of musical culture, three days before his slated appearance on March 13, 2020. Last Friday, we were granted audience with this young master as Grosvenor (pronounced “GROVE-ner”), now two years older (all of 29) and one suspects deeper in music, dazzled with his make-up date. In a refreshingly inventive program of Franck, Schumann’s Kreisleriana, music by seldom-played but important Spanish composer Isaac Albeniz, and two Ravel treats to close, Grosvenor won us over from start to finish. An engaging and poetic virtuoso, he channels intensity and flourish where required, but also maintains an abidingly lyrical sensibility, as heard in the slow “langsam” sections of the Schumann mosaic and the impressionistic haze of Ravel’s Jeaux d’eau. By contrast, his take on Ravel’s deliciously woozy masterpiece La Valse embraced that score’s inner drunken genius, with erudite abandon to spare.

Ending an altogether enthralling evening, Grosvenor offered up two very different dance steps as encores: Ginastera’s sad-sweet The Dance of the Beautiful Maiden and, upping the energy ante, Liszt's brisk sweep across the keyboard, Dance of the Gnomes (Gnomenreigen).

Operatic One-Two Act: Tonight (March 25th) and Sunday afternoon at the Lobero, Opera Santa Barbara continues its current resourceful and adventurous season with As One, with music and concept by Laura Kaminsky and libretto by Mark Campbell and Kimberly Reed, described as a “chamber opera for two voices and string quartet.” The narrative caveat, hinted at in the title, concerns dual-singular male and female roles (Evan Bravos and Ashley Armstrong) doubling up on the role of a single transgender character at the story’s center. Needless to say, this is not your father’s/mother’s bel canto operation. Josef Woodard is a veteran cultural critic, who wrote for the Los Angeles Times for 25 years, has contributed to Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, DownBeat, and many music magazines, and a long association with the Santa Barbara Independent and News-Press.

Woodard is also a musician, a guitarist, songwriter, and head of the Household Ink Records label.

Tree-of-the-Month, March 2022:

Eastern Redbud Cercis canadensis

Eastern Redbud Flowers

Eastern Redbud is easy to grow, provided it is in an irrigated landscape with good drainage. In poorly drained heavy soils, it can develop severe root diseases. As an understory tree, it does best in partial shade, particularly in a hot location. If properly placed and kept healthy, it will be relatively free from pest and disease problems. It is a slow-growing tree that can be either low-branched, multitrunked, or single-trunked; judicious early pruning will create the form you prefer. It is an excellent tree for smaller and more intimate landscape spaces. Because of its unique beauty, Eastern Redbud has long been popular as an ornamental tree and planted, primarily, in city parks or in private yards. It can be enjoyed as an individual specimen - or, for added impact, installed in groups or in rows. Two especially delightful cultivars, ‘Forest Pansy’, and ‘Ruby Falls’, were found to be so outstanding that they received the Royal Horticultural Society’s Award of Merit. These cultivars are prized for their stunning purple to greenish-purple leaves and their brilliant fall color. ‘Ruby Falls’ has the additional feature of a gracefully weeping growth habit. Although Eastern Redbuds are rarely used here as street trees, they do stand in our landscapes: in the front courtyard of the Carrillo Recreation Center (100 E. Carrillo St.); S.B. Architectural Foundation (229 E. Victoria Street); on the 2000 block of Chapala Street; on the 500 block of N. La Cumbre Road; and, at the corner of Alston Road and Augusta Lane. They are more often seen in private yards and gardens. The white flowering variety can be seen in the Japanese Garden at Lotusland. Because they are such lovely trees, they really should be planted more frequently about town. Photos by David Gress


By David Gress / Special to VOICE

OTHING SAYS, “Spring is here!” like a deciduous tree coming into full bloom. Even with the amazing variety of flowering trees that grow in our community, there is a special one that always captures our attention this time of year - the Eastern Redbud. This may be somewhat surprising because it is a rather diminutive tree, reaching a maximum height and spread of only 20 feet. Nevertheless, with its open and picturesque form, delicate branching, and petite blossoms, it creates as refined a silhouette as you might see in a Japanese painting - and one that you will want to see in your own garden. Its main attention-getters are its showy flowers - pops of magenta-pink against otherwise-bare, almost-black, narrow stems. Selected cultivars have white flowers. The flowers, shaped like pea blossoms, are tiny (½ inch wide), and are “perfect,” meaning they each have both male and female reproductive parts. Flowers typically occur in clusters of four to ten that emerge along the stems and, remarkably, sometimes along the trunks. Sweet nectar is produced deep in the throats of these little flowers; only longtongued bees, such as carpenter bees, can serve as pollinators. All Redbuds are in the Legume family (Fabaceae); consequently, their pollinated flowers create seed pods (two- to four- inches long) that look much like common snap peas, each containing ten to twelve brown seeds (¼-inch long). It has lovely foliage and, when fully-leafed, will resemble a tree full of paper Valentines! This is the result of each leaf being “cordate,” meaning “heartshaped.” Growing to three- to five- inches long and wide, the leaves have smooth margins with pointed tips and are arranged in an alternating zig-zag pattern along the stems. Satiny-textured on their surfaces, they first appear in a muted green to blue-green color, which will turn yellow to light orange in the fall. The Eastern Redbud is native to an immense area, stretching from southern Ontario in Canada, south to much of the United States, including New Eastern Redbud England, the Midwest, and the South, and then extending further into northern Mexico. In its natural setting, it is primarily an understory tree that grows along streams or on the edges of woodlands. There is also a Western Redbud, Cercis occidentalis, a California native. It is distinctly different from Eastern Redbud and, therefore, will be featured in another Tree-of-the Month article. The botanical name for Eastern Redbud is Cercis canadensis. The genus name, Cercis, comes from the Greek word, “kerkis,” meaning “weaver’s shuttle,” referring to the shape of its seed pods. The specific epithet, canadensis, refers to its native range in Canada.

She first grew inspired to establish an eco-friendly beauty line about four years ago, through speaking with her daughter, an ocean conservationist, about the harmful effects of plastic on the ocean.

“The choices people make are really important... our dollars, and the dollars we spend have an impact on life in general,” explained owner and founder Lynn Venturella. “And if we are buying things that don’t hurt the environment, don’t hurt animals, more of that type of thing will be produced...

It is also a terrific opportunity to open our doors and welcome new audiences who do not typically attend opera.” Mezzo-soprano Created by Laura Kaminsky, Mark Campbell, and Ashley Armstrong Kimberly Reed, As One centers on Hannah, a woman who is transgender. As her story unfolds, audience members join Hannah in her efforts to love herself and ultimately discover her gender identity.

Ahoy to Returning Cruise Ships! By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE


OW MANY OF YOU SAW A MASSIVE FORM THAT APPEARED ON THE HORIZON JUST BEFORE SUNRISE ON WEDNESDAY IN THE MIDDLE OF LAST WEEK? It seemed that a mega-hotel, like an island in the middle of the ocean, had sprung from the depths, a shadow between the morning light and the coastline. Yep! It was a cruise ship – a huge one - and the first to anchor offshore since 2020.

Photo by John Palminteri

Cruise ships in the Santa Barbara Channel bring millions of dollars to the local economy (and a $7 per The Majestic Princess offshore of Santa Barbara passenger revenue stream to the Waterfront Department) and serve to showcase Santa Barbara’s picturesque coastline and Chamber of Commerce weather on a global scale. But with the onslaught of the pandemic in March of 2020, the Waterfront Department decided to pause the cruise ship program until March of 2022 as the health and and safety of our community and that of the ship’s passengers became its number one priority above all other considerations.

Call for availability

www.TheTouchofStone.com Kerry Methner • 805-570-2011

Off the coast of Santa Barbara, most of the city had a clear view of the massive Majestic Princess, definitely a positive sign that the coronavirus has lessened (at least for the next little while). This magnificent monolith is the first of 17 cruise ships scheduled to visit Santa Barbara during the Spring months. The Majestic Princess is considered to be a Royal-class - loosely translated: HUGE! - cruise ship currently operated by Princess Cruises, built in Italy and made ready for service in 2017. Originally designed to accommodate the Chinese market, she first visited the coasts of Asia, after which she traveled to the Mediterranean, Australia, across the North Atlantic, and eventually to the West Coast of North America. The Majestic Princess has 18 decks, a length of 1,082 feet and measures almost 150,000 gross tonnage. She contains 1,780 passenger cabins – most of which have balconies – for up to 3,500 guests and 757 for her crew – a whopping maximum capacity of 5,600! During their time onboard, passengers enjoy a selection of lounges and specialty restaurants, pools and spas, fitness centers, 24/7 entertainment such a movies, music, and dancing, Las Vegas-style showrooms, and a casino to match. During her stay in Santa Barbara, the passenger count was estimated to be around 6o percent of capacity. Nevertheless, I’d say that’s one huge floating hotel and entertainment center! Prior to March 2022, the Waterfront Department worked out the regulations for health and safety with all COVID health protocols required by the Santa Barbara Health Department in place. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have since established a Conditional Sailing Order which requires at least 95 percent of crew and passengers to be fully vaccinated and testing for non-vaccinated persons before coming ashore. This year’s schedule was designed to minimize the impact on residents but strategically support Santa Barbara businesses. Sounds like the balance that is being sought by most of the world to navigate its way through our uncertain ‘new normal’. Although every safety precaution has been taken, the new normal, after months of isolation and coronavirus restrictions, takes time to process. While cruise ships are a bonus for the economy and an important income stream for our community, some residents find them intrusive in the calm ambiance of Santa Barbara. Achieving a balance to preserve the environment, public safely, and the economy requires continual evaluation and a good deal of patience. With the approach of summer, we’ll share the beauty of our community by welcoming visitors arriving for short stays from offshore! Sigrid Toye volunteers for the Breakwater Flag Project.

Some of the drivers deliver food through apps such as Instacart.

Better off Today or in the Future? By Angel Iscovich, MD, Special to VOICE

I WAS RECENTLY MOTIVATED, DUE TO RUSSIA’S INVASION OF UKRAINE, to explore the following two questions: “Is the world better off today than it was in the past?” and “Will our future be better than it is today?” To answer the first question, I read the book Factfullness by Hans Rosling. He is a Professor of International Health and a global TED phenomenon who revealed the ten instincts that distort our perspective to think that the world is not better off. He notes that we have tendencies to “divide the world into two camps, “us” versus “them” and we also consume media where events of “fear” predominate and we perceive progress in a way most things are getting worse. Rosling asked some simple questions about global trends in 2015 at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Over 1,000 of the most influential people in the world there were asked 13 simple questions about world trends, such as — “what percentage of the world’s population live in poverty?; why the world’s population is increasing?; how many girls finish school?”—they got the answers wrong 66 percent of the time. Test yourself on a few of these questions: In all low-income countries across the world today, how many girls finish primary school? A) 20 percent B) 40 percent C) 60 percent

How many of the world’s 1-year old children today have been vaccinated against some disease? A) 20 percent B) 50 percent C) 80 percent How did the numbers of death per year from natural disasters change over the last 100 years? A) More than doubled B) Remained about the same C) Decreased to less than half (Find the answers below.) Our Dramatic Instincts make for an Overdramatic World view. As, he states, “Think about the world. War, violence, natural manmade disasters, corruption.” Additionally, “the rich getting richer, and the poor getting poorer, and we will soon run out of resources. It makes for stress and is misleading.” But if you look at the facts you find the world lives closer to middle income of the income scale, and poverty by definition, has been reduced by 80 percent since the beginning of the 20th century. Rosling adds, “Step by step, year by year, the world is improving. Though the world faces significant challenges, we have made tremendous progress.” As we look to the forward, demographic futurist Bradley Schurman in his book the Super Age explains the coming of a Super Age, writing, “Societies all over the world are getting older, the result of the fact that we are living longer and having fewer children.” He notes that in the near future the most developed world will have at least 20 percent of their population being 65 years or older. “The seismic shift in the world

population can portend a period of tremendous growth—or leave swaths of us behind.” For me, the most pivotal moment in our near future is that the greatest wealth transfer in modern history has begun. Baby boomers and older Americans have spent decades accumulating an enormous stockpile of money. At the end of this year’s first quarter, Americans age 70 and above had a net worth of nearly $35 trillion, according to Federal Reserve data. Estate planning has become a significant business in the United States to carry out this wealth transfer. In 2020, only 16 percent of Americans ages 18 to 34 said they have a will or another estate planning document. In 2021, that percentage rose by nine points – an increase of 63 percent in just one year according to www.caring.com. The millennials will be the beneficiaries of this wealth. Today, Millennials earn more money than any other generation has at their age, but hold significantly less wealth. This is because the cost of living has outpaced wage increases and two recessions and student debt has not been helpful. This will be important to our collective future. If fewer people are working as baby boomers retire, then less taxes will buttress our Social Security and Medicare programs just when they are needed the most.



• Do not allow economic stagnation • Do not allow isolation of at-risk-populations • Do not allow an accelerated decline of rural communities • Make for extended and healthier lives with ethical technology • Make for generational cooperation at work and home • Make for new markets and products to support all demographics We are better off today than we were in the past, but will be able overcome the current challenges and evolve a better world?

Answers: C, C, C As these three answers to Rosling’s quiz indicate, the world is doing much better than most of us might have otherwise suspected. Following are some of my suggestions to insure that the next hundred years offer their own improvements:

A Soft Landing For Energy? By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE

SHOULD AMERICANS WORRY about the price of gas and oil in coming months because of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine? And might it ultimately cause a recession if energy prices remain elevated? That is what some economists seem to believe, such as former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers.

Yet the current unemployment rate is 3.8 percent, and more than 1,747,000 jobs were created over just the past three months, so it’s hard to imagine a recession is anywhere on the horizon, unless the Ukraine invasion turns into something more. In fact, our current inflation surge


Professor Summers in a recent Washington Post Op-ed, said “I believe the Fed has not internalized the magnitude of its errors over the past year, is operating with an inappropriate and dangerous framework, and needs

to take far stronger action to support price stability than appears likely. The Fed’s current policy trajectory is likely to lead to stagflation, with average unemployment and inflation both averaging over five percent over the next few years — and ultimately to a major recession.”

is due to our very robust economic growth, more than three percent above the prepandemic level, and at a 40-year high. The U.S. Energy Information Agency says we have plenty gas and oil reserves, in fact a surplus, which we can export to the EU, if necessary, to help maintain the sanctions until Putin cries Uncle on his Tsarist fantasy of a greater Russian empire. “After record-high U.S. energy production and consumption in 2018, energy production grew by nearly six percent in 2019 while energy consumption decreased by about one percent, with production exceeding consumption on an annual basis for the first time since 1957. Total energy production declined by about five percent in 2020 but was still about three percent greater than consumption: production equaled 95.75 quads and consumption equaled 92.94 quads,” they wrote. Unfortunately, we are still overdependent on fossil fuels: “petroleum, natural gas, and coal— accounted for about 79 percent of total U.S. primary energy production in 2020,” said the USEIA. It is leading to prolonged

Economic VOICE

“We will take the necessary steps to ensure a return to price stability. In particular, if we conclude that it is appropriate to move more aggressively by raising the federal funds rate by more than 25 basis points at a meeting or meetings, we will do so,” Powell said in a speech to the National Association for Business Economics. So, who is right?, Summers or those who predict a prolonged trajectory of U.S. economic growth? Nobelist Paul Krugman gets the last word in a recent NY Times Op-ed: “We recovered fast from the pandemic recession and seem to have avoided the long-term “scarring” effects that many feared. Most, though not all, of the inflation we’re experiencing reflects

By Harlan Green probably temporary global forces, and multiple indicators — consumer surveys, professional forecasters, and financial markets — suggest that longer-term expectations of inflation remain “anchored,” that is, inflation isn’t getting entrenched in the economy. I believe we shouldn’t overlook the newfound unity of western, democratic nations that oppose Putin’s wars. How long can Putin and Russian citizens tolerate their economy reverting back to the size it was in 1980, as Daleep Singh, one sanctions expert interviewed on the TV news show Sixty Minutes put it?

Call for Artists:

Sip & Paint a Van Gogh A

OCALS WILL GET A FEEL FOR VINCENT VAN GOGH’S ARTISTIC VISION and process when they sign up for Sip & Paint A Van Gogh, a series of classes at the Paseo Nuevo presented in conjunction with the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s exhibit, “Through Vincent’s Eyes.” Taught by local artist and Paseo Nuevo’s Marketing Coordinator Danielle Renée Methmann of Danielle Renée Art, each class is set around one of Van Gogh’s more famous works, Starry Night (March 26th), Sunflowers (April 30th), Almond Blossoms, (May 21) and will include step by step instruction, and stories about the artist’s life. “Each class will learn about Vincent’s iconic painting style, mediums, techniques, fun facts about the artist, and then the final application onto canvas to create their very own Van Gogh,” Methmann shared. Some of the fun facts “The fun facts include his history, relationships with other French artists, and the “lifestyle he indulged in.” Danielle Renée has been teaching Sip & Paint classes for some time at locations around Santa Barbara County - including painting with wine. She has been working Paseo Nuevo for the last three years. She is looking forward to hosting this, her first Danielle Renée Methmann class at Paseo Nuevo, and will award two free tickets to of Danielle Renée Art Paseo Nuevo social media followers, with the winner announced Thursday, March 24th at noon. Wine can add a fun and improvisational element to the Sip & Paint experience for those old enough to give it a try. “Wine plays a significant role in the creative process and has for hundreds of years,” Danielle Renée explained. “Those of age, will receive a complimentary glass of wine to sip during the class to open our creative side; it also brings down our own insecurities and allows the creative flow to come out easier when the road blocks are out of the way.” The results of the experience, according to Methmann are positive: “In every class I teach there is at least one person who discovers how much talent they really encompass and are inspired to continue their own artistic outlets.” These classes may be the perfect way to re-enter the current public space in a creative way. “It’s exciting to see so many people interested in art and recreating famous artwork together, in person... The exhibition is proving to be a great vehicle for the community-wide events in conjunction with SBMA stunning exhibit. Visitors walking through Paseo Nuevo are making the connection with an eagerness to see and do all the Van Gogh’esque events,” Methmann concluded. Each class costs $55 and is held from 1 to 3pm at 311 Paseo Nuevo, next to Aveda. Get tickets at: https://paseonuevoshopping.com/events/sip-paint-a-van-gogh/

ONFRONTING VIEWERS WITH HIS THOUGHTFUL GAZE, SIGNATURE RED BEARD, AND EVER-BURNING PIPE, Vicent van Gogh’s Self-Portrait with Pipe is his only self-portrait displayed in the Santa Barbara Museum of Art’s exhibition, Through Vincent’s Eyes: Van Gogh and His Sources. According to historian Sjraar van Heugten’s commentary in the exhibition’s catalogue, Van Gogh had never painted a self-portrait before moving to Paris to live with his brother, Theo. This is largely attributed to the fact that Van Gogh likely did not own a mirror large enough for the task, as well as his difficulties securing models for his paintings. The work speaks to his beginning explorations of color.

“Van Gogh had realized after arriving in Paris that his use of very dark color was very old-fashioned, and he had started to experiment with stronger and brighter colors, at first going back and forth between his old manner and new insights,” writes van Heugten. Technological analysis also reveals that Van Gogh reused the canvas, painting over another portrait depicting a woman.
