A Letter from Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics’s Dr. Charles Fenzi

Photos ©2021 Isaac Hernández Herrero

Dear Neighbor, We hope you are well and maneuvering gently through this uncertain time. Although we see an end to this pandemic in sight, we still have much work to do. Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics has remained open and quickly and nimbly adjusted to this pandemic, never closing our doors, instead making our clinics COVID-19 ready and safe during this unprecedented time. Currently, we have the monumental task of vaccinating our 30,000 patients. This will take a herculean effort that we cannot accomplish without our dedicated volunteer clinicians and community members. Right now, we need your help. Vaccinating our community is our top priority and the costs go beyond the vaccine supply itself. The cost of syringes and other supplies, clinical and support staff, and onboarding volunteers to help with the effort represent a significant unbudgeted expense to the clinics. This vaccination effort would not be possible without skilled volunteers like Mary Ferris, MD, one of our dedicated board members, and a clinical volunteer. Mary can be found at most of our vaccine events, when not working during the day as a clinical advisor to UCSB’s COVID-19 Response Team. “Our Neighborhood Clinics’ patients are so grateful when Retired SBNC Dentist Dorothy they come in for the vaccines,” says Dr. Ferris. “I’ve seen Holmes volunteers at the Vaccination Clinic restaurant chefs, avocado pickers, and home health aides, along with the very elderly being brought in by their adult children. The clinics have been calling them personally to arrange the appointments, since many do not have access to the computerized appointment systems. The clinics provide tremendously important services in our community, and I am honored to contribute.” SBNC’s collaborative partners, like Direct Relief, have also been providing facilities, pharmacists, and support services to make these clinics possible. Another volunteer, Anu Sharma, MD, a pediatrician at SBNC’s Eastside Clinic, has been working tirelessly to staff our vaccine clinics in her off hours. Community volunteers, including retired nurses like Katina Zaninovich, are invaluable to the vaccine effort. “After I retired from VNA Health,” says Katina, “I thought my ability to have direct patient contact would be over. I have always kept my license current because, well, I worked hard to get it, and the practical side of me wanted to be prepared should I have to go back to work. Then something like this pandemic comes along, and you actually still have some skills that will help (after a teeny bit of retraining!). It gives me joy to see the smile on each person who wants to be vaccinated and also know that by volunteering my time, I can help decrease some of the financial burden on the organizations that are providing the infrastructure to vaccinate our community.” SBNC’s vaccination clinics would not be possible without the financial support of philanthropists like Dr. Mary Ferris, a SBNC Board Dorothy Largay, who also volunteers her time. Member, volunteering at the

“If you want to fill your spirit with hope, optimism, and gratitude,” says Dorothy, “there is nothing better than volunteering for SBNC’s vaccination clinics. It will make your day!” Meanwhile, SBNC’s regular clinic services are in even more demand. Our Bridge Clinic, which treats substance use disorders, has experienced a 60 percent increase in patients since the beginning of the pandemic (650 patients), and our Behavioral Health Providers have also seen an increase in encounters, creating the need for additional staffing. Our dental clinics have transitioned to tele-dentistry and are following Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) directives. We have installed portable aerosol vacuums, air scrubbers, and operatory room foggers to safely provide urgent dental visits, while also using tele-dentistry for pediatric wellness checks and follow-up care. The dental clinics are now able to begin accepting in-person visits again. Please consider giving today. Our community’s health depends on supporters Rosalind Gilbert, Director of Human Resources like you. Thank you and please stay safe. and Philanthropist Dorothy Largay hand out immunization cards

West Victoria Street To Reopen Downtown


by Mark M. Whitehurst / VOICE

SSENTIAL TO TRAFFIC FLOW, West Victoria Street will reopen one lane to all forms of transportation in May, broadening accessibility to businesses and city amenities on that street. “Now that there is light at the end of the tunnel, and Ensemble Theatre Company looks forward to re-opening The New Vic, the city’s plan to partially re-open West Victoria with one-way traffic is a welcomed accommodation to support all of the businesses in our block, and we are grateful for that,” stated Jill Seltzer, Managing Director of ETC. As business restrictions have continued to ease and transportation and circulation needs have increased, the City responded to create greater access to businesses by reopening the 00 block of West Victoria Street between State and Chapala streets with a one-way eastbound traffic lane. East Victoria Street is currently open to traffic. The reopening is scheduled for the second week in May. Also located on West Victoria Street are ten foodservice businesses, including Bouchon, Olio e Limone Ristorante, Olio Crudo Bar, and Scarlette Begonia, and the seven merchants of the Public Market, all of which have been operating outdoor dining services. The Ensemble Theatre Company will be hosting its Young Playwrights Festival May 22nd to 23rd and a Student Summer Camp from July 15th to 17th. Ensemble Theatre Company will open its full five-production season at The New Vic beginning in October 2021, running through June 2022. In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the City Council adopted an Emergency Economic Recovery Ordinance in May 2020 to allow outdoor business activities and the temporary use of the public right of way to help businesses reopen, recover, and survive. In July 2020, the City established a temporary closure of the 00 block of West Victoria Street, between State and Chapala streets, to allow expansion of outdoor dining areas. The Council recently extended the Emergency Ordinance that allows the continuation of outdoor business activities until March 2022. New landscaped planters, k-rail barriers, and signage will be strategically placed through the block to facilitate the one-way configuration. The City will also be initiating a Downtown State Street Area Master Plan in the coming year that will evaluate the transportation and circulation needs and opportunities of Downtown State Street as well as the cross streets such as Victoria Street.

Community News PATH Continues Serving Community Members Experiencing Homelessness Through Pandemic


EOPLE EXPERIENCING HOMELESSNESS have remained one of the most vulnerable communities amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet through maintaining and expanding its services on a statewide level, People Assisting the Homeless (PATH) have continued to provide individuals in need with shelter and care. PATH leaders provided key updates on this crucial work to local and state elected officials during its April 23rd regional briefing. “There was so much fear and uncertainty,” said PATH Deputy CEO Jennifer Hark-Dietz in reference to March 2020. “But one thing that we knew was that our work was essential, and that in order to continue saving lives and providing hope for people experiencing homelessness we had to act quickly.” PATH serves approximately 20 percent of people experiencing homelessness throughout California. PATH Santa Barbara has been active since 2015, when it merged with the organization Casa Esperanza. Since that time, this local branch has served over 3,500 people, with 475 individuals achieving permanent housing. Hark-Dietz began the presentation by discussing the organization’s COVID-19 response, with Santa Barbara Mayor Cathy Murillo, City Councilmember Oscar Gutierrez, and representatives from the offices of Governor Gavin Newsom, Congressman Salud Carbajal, and State Senator Monique Limón in attendance. She explained how PATH formed its Cares Emergency Staff Task Force to address continuing services amidst COVID-19. Through its daily meetings, new initiatives were launched such as tele-case management services and instituting a “drop, knock, and walk” policy when distributing food and hygiene items. PATH has further provided safe lodging by opening six COVID-19 emergency housing sites. Included among these sites is the Project Roomkey non-congregate shelter in Santa Barbara, which lets people experiencing homelessness stay in participating hotels’ available rooms. Through these efforts, PATH as an organization was able to serve 26,423 individuals over the course of 2020.

Hope Awards to Honor Craig Price and Nick Rail


Craig Price

Nick Rail

ONG-TIME SUPPORTERS OF PUBLIC EDUCATION, Craig Price and Nick Rail will be honored during the Santa Barbara Education Foundation’s annual Hope Awards. Featuring a silent auction and mystery wine pull, this year’s event will celebrate these committed locals’ impacts and support of SBEF. The event will take place virtually at 4pm Thursday, April 29th. Both Price and Rail were selected for their dedication to local public education. Price, who currently works as an attorney for Griffith & Thornburgh, spent nine years on the SBEF Board of Directors, with two years acting as Board President. “It was Craig’s vision that elevated the SBEF from a small group of fundraisers mostly focused on music and expanded the organization to include a wider breadth of programs serving all students in the Santa Barbara Unified School District,” explains the SBEF website. Rail, founder of Nick Rail Music, has actively supported local music education for 30 years, providing students access to learning opportunities through donating equipment and founding Summer Band Camp, which is now operated by SBEF. “In partnership with SBEF, Nick Rail Music has donated new instruments valued in excess of $100,000 to Santa Barbara public school music programs,” states SBEF.

PATH serves approximately 20 percent of people experiencing homelessness throughout California. PATH Santa Barbara has been active since 2015, when it merged with the organization Casa Esperanza. Since that time, this local branch has served over 3,500 people, with 475 individuals achieving permanent housing.

Currently, PATH is supporting equitable COVID-19 vaccine distribution by hosting vaccination hubs at its supportive and interim housing sites with public health partners across the state. “We’ve been really grateful for the access that we’ve been granted in Santa Barbara for the vaccines,” Hark-Dietz commented. Hark-Dietz went on to discuss how PATH has continued advancing itself as an anti-racist organization over the past year. Having formed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee in 2019, the organization has recently launched its Listen, Learn, and Lead Initiative to ensure the organization best serves populations disproportionately affected by systemic racism, generational poverty, and homelessness. At this time, PATH is working with consulting group Racial Equity Partners to review procedures with a racial equity lens, working with staff and client-focused groups centered around Black, Indigenous, and people of color to gain personal input, and eventually host racial equity training sessions. “This is a top priority for us, as we know that racist policies have a direct impact on our unhoused neighbors,” shared Hark-Dietz. PATH Santa Barbara further discussed the branch’s ongoing programs to serve the community, including providing 100 beds for individuals in need through its Interim Housing project. In the case of inclement weather, that capacity can double as needed. The location further supports individuals with an Employment Services program and short-term rental and case management services through its Rapid Re-Housing program. People with more long-term needs are served through PATH’s Permanent Supportive Housing, which offers continuing financial assistance and supportive services based in the community. “This is actually the first program of its type in Santa Barbara, but it’s a model that PATH actually operates throughout the entire state,” explained Jonathan Castillo, PATH Chief Regional Officer. PATH Senior Director of Public Policy Zach Schlagel concluded by highlighting legislation the organization supports, namely California Bill AB 71 to establish ongoing funding in the state budget to support efforts to end homelessness. “I fully support your operations,” said Mayor Murillo before offering to write letters of support for PATH’s recommended legislation.

MTD Proposes Termination of Downtown and Waterfront Shuttles By Daisy Scott / VOICE

OR ALMOST 30 YEARS, a classic element of exploring downtown Santa Barbara has been riding the Downtown and Waterfront Shuttles. Charging a mere 50 cents per ride, the electric shuttles have offered hundreds of thousands of locals and tourists alike each year an accessible and fun transportation experience. Now, this service has come under threat, with Santa Barbara MTD proposing the shuttles’ termination following the City of Santa Barbara’s announcement that it is no longer able to subsidize the service. “I would ask the public to understand that we’re in a revenue crunch right now, and we don’t have funds for the shuttle service,” said Mayor Cathy Murillo. “Second, we’re looking at how people want to get around downtown, and the shuttle service may not be the most effective.” The City of Santa Barbara has historically subsidized the Downtown and Waterfront Shuttles on lines 30 and 31, which cover State Street, the Funk Zone, Cabrillo Boulevard, the Santa Barbara Zoo, and the harbor. By contributing just over $1.2 million per year, the city was able to support the shuttles’ general operations and maintain their low fare. However, while the City’s contract with MTD is not supposed to end until June 2022, the City informed MTD in May 2020 that it would not be able to pay the subsidy going forward due to insufficient funds. Consequently, MTD has proposed the termination of the shuttles’ services, which have been suspended since April 2020. In turn, community members have begun voicing their concerns. “The shuttle is a lifeline for downtown businesses, because it brings tourists, carrying about 255,000 every year up State Street to the city’s most important anchor attractions, the Courthouse and the SB Museum of Art. This service, however modified, needs to remain in place,” commented Mark Whitehurst, past president of Downtown Santa Barbara and owner of Voice Magazine. According to Mayor Murillo, the City pays the subsidy from the Public Works Department’s Downtown Parking fund, which took a great hit over the past year amidst the pandemic and the City’s decision to halt parking fees in its early months. She further cited State Street’s ongoing closure to vehicular traffic as a contributing factor in the City’s evaluation of the downtown area and its transportation. Murillo added that ridership levels on the shuttles had decreased prior to the pandemic, attributing this to the increase of individuals using personal vehicles, Uber and Lyft, and rental bicycles to get around downtown. She additionally reflected that the decrease may be the result of businesses closing and fewer people shopping downtown, and commented that the City, along with the to-be-formed

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

Hypnosis can help.

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.

SBCC Foundation and Explore Ecology Receive $100,000 EPA Grant


UST IN TIME FOR EARTH DAY, Santa Barbara City College and Explore Ecology, along with five community partners, received a grant from the Environmental Protection Agency’s Environmental Education Program to form the Santa Barbara Ecological and Edible (SBEE) Garden Project, a network of community gardens that will allow for greater access to locally grown food as well as support biodiversity and a stronger connection between our community and garden ecosystems. “This grant will allow us to create spaces that restore biodiversity, grow healthy food, connect with the community, and educate students,” said Adam Green, Ph.D., Professor of Biology and Environmental Studies at SBCC. “These efforts show how a community college can reach out beyond its borders and partner with residents, community groups, and local schools to make Santa Barbara a healthy and enjoyable place to live and raise your family.” Locations across the community will act as partner sites, including the SBCC Permaculture Garden, Explore Ecology School Garden sites, Mesa Harmony Garden, the westside location of United Boys and Girls Club of Santa Barbara County, El Centro, and more. The range of sites will give students, teachers, community members, and local researchers greater opportunities to learn about topics like ecological health, food production, and water conservation. “This is the largest EPA Environmental Education grant ever awarded to an organization in Santa Barbara County, and one of the largest in California in recent decades,” said Rachel Johnson, SBCC Foundation Director of Grants. “It speaks to the collaborative work and far-reaching impact of Santa Barbara City College, Explore Ecology, and our many incredible community partners.” Learn more at: www.exploreecology.org/sbee-garden-project

HarborVOICE By Sigrid Toye, Special to VOICE

HUGE DARK LOOKING MASS straddled the mountain tops last weekend as if the Olympians were about to unleash a bolt of lightening upon our fair city. It seemed as if the Channel Islands also were playing peek-a-boo behind several layers of peculiar looking clouds uncertain whether to head for cover or be exposed to the oncoming weather. Despite the foreboding weather threat, not a drop of rain fell to the ground. The wind, however, did make an impact as most of the undaunted visitors to the harbor, of which there were many, were bundled up in cozy warm jackets. The rather extensive work underway in the harbor area certainly didn’t dampen anyone’s enthusiasm for a fun filled weekend! The weekend visitors took the long walk from every waterfront parking lot…. except the most convenient one, directly behind the harbor walkway. That parking area (the one closest to the shops and restaurants) is almost fully cordoned off to public parking. “Tow Away” warnings and yellow tape blocking access are everywhere (other than to the Yacht Club’s private parking lot). Pedestrians however, have full access to view the cause of the disruption that eliminated those much revered parking spaces: the Underground Storage Tank Replacement Project! The fuel tanks being replaced service the fuel dock at the end of the harbor pier where, on any given day, dozens of fishing vessels, work boats, sailboats, and power boats tie up to fill up with gasoline and diesel. Without the fuel provided by the underground tanks, most maritime operations would come to a screeching halt. The replacement of the tanks, originally installed in 1983, has nothing to do with their viability, but with a California law that mandates replacing the existing four 10,000 gallon tanks with two 20,000 gallon containers that are double walled (as opposed to the former single walled smaller tanks) by 2025. The project is being undertaken by Santa Barbara Fuel Dock Inc. with oversight by the Santa Barbara County Public Heath Department, assisted by regional and County quality control agencies. As is obvious at the moment with construction underway, all sorts of traffic competes for the same areas. This will include delivery trucks, staging platforms, offloading goods, plus the Harbor Patrol emergency vehicles. Funding for this extensive project was obtained by the Santa Barbara Fuel Dock Inc. without the use of Waterfront Department funds or tax dollars. The replacement project actually had its beginnings in February 2020, but was halted for close to a year due to an electrical line that needed to be relocated. Yet another example of Murphy’s Law, work was restarted in March 2021. During the duration of the project, there is to be no parking in the red and yellow construction zones and vehicular access in and through the area will be limited to operations essential to the maintenance of the harbor. In an email exchange with Waterfront Director Mike Wiltshire for the purpose of this column, he assured me that the project is moving along well and should be completed before the end of May, ahead of schedule. Let’s keep our fingers crossed! But that’s not all, Folks! The waterfront area is a busy place for sure, keeping things in smooth running order. As many of us have noticed, dredging of the harbor is also underway. The twice a year maintenance dredging, funded by federal dollars, keeps the channel at the desired depth and configuration for safe navigation. About 720,000 cubic yards of dredged material is collected and transferred down the coast for beach replenishment. Dredging keeps ocean related activities in full swing while providing our beaches with much needed sand. Lots going on this month at the beautiful Santa Barbara harbor in preparation for the summer to come. For the latest updates, stay tuned ...

SeaSon Five

The International Fine Arts Film Festival is Live! Discover 103 Animation, Dance, Documentary, Experimental, & Narrative Films from 23 Countries, each filled with artists... Through May 15th



A Free Film Festival

ROBUST SELECTION OF FILMS FROM AROUND THE WORLD celebrating and promoting excellence in the art film disciplines of Animation, Dance, Documentary, Experimental, Narrative, and Original Score are ready for viewing at the International Fine Arts Film Festival website. Winners were selected by 12 judges from across the nation, based on criteria such as filmmaking to their ability to create interest, and bring arts from painters, sculptors, hand-drawn animators, professional dancers, musicians, and over the edge experimental artists who combine many artforms to life. The top winners’ include Upwell, Initiation, Walls of Limerick, Bisque, Still Untitled, Perfect Dancer, The Prepartor, Gloria’s Call, Tip Toland, Outlier, Winter, and Birch Grove. These films hail from the USA to Australia, Austria, Canada, Ireland, and Poland. Runner ups, including Semi-Finalists and Honorable Mentions, each phenomenal, are also listed and available for individual viewing on the Winners Page on the website. These also included five Director’s Choice awards picked from a remaining list of 75 films. Notable is UpWell, directed by J’aime Morrison, with Montecito roots, who won top prize in Experimental. It was judged on its story-line and filmmaking, which included women surfers in CA, as well as its display of soulfulness and sheer beauty. The two judges who chose it are not, nor have ever been surfers, nor do they live near oceans. Founding Director Lynn Holley considers their choices a testament to the power of a great film. A local surfing advocate and professional has donated money to the festival and awarded a cash prize to the filmmaker for supporting women filmmakers and women surfers. For an introduction to the Festival by Founder by Lynn Holley, visit the website’s home page. “The amount of films accepted this season is a hundred times more than ever,” Holley shared. “I was shut down in my apartment, and I kept extending the time of entry. As I enjoyed watching so many films, I just started selecting more for eventual screening. I figured it would be a great opportunity for filmmakers to be in a festival, and I believed it would be certainly easier than trying to manage so many people in a physical space.” www.IFAFF.org operates as a non-profit entity of its fiscal receiver Art Without Limits. Donations keep us screening, which is an essential and creative outlet for professional and student filmmakers.

Poetic VOICE

The Seeing of Emma Trelles Santa Barbara Poet Laureate

The devil’s in my rear view mirror and he’s larger than he appears. —from “Country Dada Song, in 4/4 Time” By Richard Jarrette / Special to VOICE


Photo by REgina Reese

ONCE TRACKED THE “SHOULDERS” that appear in Jane Hirshfield’s poems. She said she had no idea, but admitted she’d counted the “flies” in the poems of Galway Kinnell. It’s the “eyes” in the poetry of Emma Trelles, Santa Barbara Poet Laureate 20212023. This is fitting for a seeing poet who wins awards for poetry and analysis of the visual arts, and whose Tropicalia (2010) is inspired by the Brazilian Emma Trelles arts movement of the same name that brought a lush and hard edge sensibility to the art scene of the ’60’s and ’70’s. Her biography has been amply reported in local media since she accepted the crown of our new laureate—here we relish the poetry, the deep story of her soul, via the vision in her poems. from How to Write a Poem: Theory #62 The beginning should eat the eyes. It’s the part of the movie where you step into line at the bodega with Our Lady of the Sponge Curlers. She’s buying toilet paper and Mahatma rice. This is her life and you happened to ease into it at the wooden lull between explosions . . . There is nothing left except the flutter of wings beneath the stabbing, a woman before the stove, stirring rice and wishing death, the river outside her window, how it glosses after rain not like mirrors or a polished lens, simply water, falling, dark. Federico García Lorca is her brother poet and I was lucky to hear her read this one which gave me courage to search for him in my own poems— from Lorca is Green Lorca is green as the sky at the hour of the crepúsculo, when the moon begins its bright ascent and the sidewalks fall to darkness. Lorca is the shadow-green of mangroves and pines, the slash of green beneath the egret’s eye. He is the green that enters in silence; he is the green that returns. Lorca was a poet whose work I read out loud and in Spanish to my mother and stepfather. She made Cuban coffee and served it in tiny china cups . . . That summer when my mother’s hair had finally grown back after the chemo, her head now dark and budding with curls, I could read espadas and adelfa but did not know they meant swords and oleander. It is easier to speak than to understand Spanish, with its velvet-clad consonants and hopeful vowels, each letter sounding exactly as it appears. Nothing is left behind. Nothing is buried. Trelles brings wildness, lyrical fireworks, she manifests— Desire She imagines the way his white shirt will shimmer how his watch will press a blind eye

Local News for a Global Village | www.VoiceSB.com against the seasons ahead. She imagines how his nails wind into thick spirals, how the tiniest of creatures finds path to the jelly of his eyes. At last there is the matter of his shoes ash black, sharp-toed, gleaming like axes or the way we burn when nothing is left. She played in a South Florida all-woman indie rock band, “Secret PE Club”—lyrics, voice, bass. When the guitar player left, they asked Mark Zolezzi from “The Gruntled” to join them. They married six years later. Tropicalia’s unfettered music was a sharp and exquisite choice to win the Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize, she delivers the struggle, cost, pain, the gravitas— Hunger A rusty crab picks across the gold-packed sand— first time in years I see anything besides napkins and foil working the shore. Must be that hole in the ozone, knitting itself together, a surge of redemption, nudging all matters into light. Never mind they’re hiding boats off the coast of Cojimar, patched rafts and blind wooden boxes sagging against the sea, mothers with dead hands, boys broken with thirst, the same way my grandfather looked the day he flew in from Havana, skin the color of dry clay and corneas glazed like porcelain. No food, he said, there’s nothing left. They’re trapping cats in fields. They fill you up all right; just shut your eyes and eat.

Poets with large spirits and deep souls see big, they take in our world, this one, and as Zbigniew Herbert proclaimed, “write letters to the President of the Solar System full of intimate confessions.” from Some of the Reasons Because they sell the promise of the noose. Because the band was nomadic and took my head along. Because a guitar is a box of air. Because I can sing. Because he pedals when he sleeps. Because he kneeled and because he asked. Because the land is covered in salt. Because the land will not cede. Because I am rejected. Because I am released. Because pelicans have returned to fish the inlet. Because the moon is quartered. Because the airport rises from the dark in a castle of light. Fine poets of courage unfurl a life until we are also in the sacred moment. From Nocturne in Parts, in which she visits a psychic— You see this? She holds my hand between her scissor fingers and tells me I should have died at 25. When she’s done, I walk to the park and watch a pigeon slap his wings hard against the wind. All that strain and he only makes it to the curb. I barely made it out of bed this morning. The kitchen fairies hid the oatmeal. I settled for an orange. There is something all-powerful and holy about a cold orange. Imagine peeling each day into one flawless strip. We eagerly await the next collection of Laureate Trelles— Courage and the Clock.

Tax Results for the City of Santa Barbara


HE CITY OF SANTA BARBARA collected $1,262,304 in transient occupancy taxes (TOT) for March 2021. TOT revenues in March 2021 were 119 percent above March collections last year-which was the first month of the COVID-19 pandemic and the related response. By way of comparison, compared to March 2019, March 2021 revenues were lower by twelve percent. The local travel industry is beginning to see increases in demand for rooms relative to recent months that is likely to continue throughout the spring into the summer months as the State has lifted travel advisories and as access to vaccinations has become more available. However, TOT revenues have still not recovered to typical pre-pandemic levels, as there is still public concern with potential new strains of the virus, efficacy of the vaccines and the impacts to the economy. The City has collected $9.6 million through the first nine months of the City’s fiscal year, which runs from July 1 through June 30. The City’s adopted TOT budget is $17.2 million. TOT is projected to end the fiscal year at approximately $14.5 million, which is 16 percent below budget.

A Better Use of Economic Growth By Harlan Green / Special to VOICE


HE ATLANTA FEDERAL RESERVE BANK PUTS OUT A GDPNOW FORECAST of upcoming monthly GDP growth, and its latest estimate puts growth at the highest level since the 1980s. “The GDPNow model estimate for real GDP growth (seasonally adjusted annual rate) in the first quarter of 2021 is 8.3 percent on April 16, unchanged from April 15 after rounding,” said the Atlanta Fed. “After this morning’s housing starts report (last week) from the U.S. Census Bureau, the nowcast of first-quarter real residential investment growth decreased from 10.6 percent to 10.2 percent. However, new-home sales’ figures Friday showed even faster residential investment growth ahead, reported the U.S. Census Bureau. Sales of new single-family houses in March 2021 were at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,021,000, according to estimates released jointly on April 26th by the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Housing and Urban Development. This is 20.7 percent (±23.7 percent) above the revised February rate of 846,000 and is 66.8 percent (±36.7 percent) above the March 2020 estimate of 612,000. The problem is not finding more ways to boost GDP growth, per se, but how it will be utilized. Since the 1980s, a growing percentage of the Gross National Income


Economic VOICE

derived from GDP growth has gone to ‘rentiers’, i.e., people that derive income from their assets rather than wages. That is in part due to the huge decline in personal and corporate taxation of said wealth that has allowed rentiers to accumulate more private wealth, rather than investing in productive enterprises. What creates GDP? The aggregate, or effective demand of all goods and services produced domestically. Economists have broken it into four components, of which consumer spending is the largest portion. The rest is made up of net exports, government expenditures, and investments. Consumers spend on private consumer goods, so it is up to investment and government spending to build for future growth, and that has not happened because corporations haven’t been maintaining a decent level of capital expenditures, and government investments in infrastructure, education, R&D, and our social safety net that would keep workers healthy enough to be more productive has been cut sharply since the 1970s. GDP growth has been paying too little forward for future generations since then, in other words, so taxing some of the wealth accumulated since 1980 is needed to pay it forward for future generations. President Biden’s $2.3 trillion American Jobs Plan is meant to correct the underinvestment in the public good. He is calling for more than $1 trillion to be invested just in the various components of infrastructure, including better roads, bridges, public transportation, expanding broadband and electric grids, as well as electric vehicle use. He is also calling for more spending on health care and the national housing shortage—more than $213 billion to “build, preserve, and retrofit more than two million

homes and commercial buildings to address the affordable housing crisis,” $100 billion to modernize public schools and early learning facilities, $180 billion in research and development of future technologies, and more. This supports much more than infrastructure, as it fulfills every person’s basic needs for food, shelter, and security. Initial first quarter GDP comes out Thursday (April 29th), and consensus predictions are for seven percent growth. Whatever it will be, it is important that it be used in productive ways, and the just-passed American Recovery Act and upcoming American Jobs Plan begin the process of utilizing America’s economic growth to support a better future for all Americans.

Legislative Day: Taking Our Message Straight to the Top By Brian Johnson, 2021 President, SBAOR


OR ALMOST 50 YEARS, the California Association of REALTORS® has participated in an annual Legislative Day in Sacramento. This event gives our REALTOR® members the ability to meet firsthand with their elected officials to discuss real estate issues. In recent years, we have had between 2,000 and 2,500 REALTORS® Brian Johnson, descending on the Capitol to make sure SBAOR President our legislators understood the importance of housing and home ownership. Due to COVID-19, those meetings were largely cancelled last year. However, this year, we have our first virtual event ever planned.

Featuring speakers such as Governor Gavin Newsom, Senate President Toni Atkins, Senator Scott Wilk and Assemblywoman Blanca Rubio, the event will cover critical housing topics including housing supply, fair housing challenges, affordable housing innovation, and the state of the housing market. This is a chance for our members to share their own stories and experiences firsthand with our state leaders. Legislative Day is important because legislators hear from REALTORS® about how policies impact real estate in their hometowns. In addition, it demonstrates the strength of the REALTOR® community by showing them how many of us are committed to spending time advocating for our industry and homeownership.

Brian Johnson is a California licensed real estate agent and the Managing Director of Radius Commercial Real Estate. Johnson handles all types of commercial real estate transactions but has a special focus on multifamily investments. He can be reached at 805-879-9631 or bjohnson@radiusgroup.com

Voices of Art, Human Rights Two books co-edited by UCSB scholars explore Latin America from critical perspectives By Jim Logan / The UC Santa Barbara Current


PAIR OF NEW BOOKS CO-EDITED BY UC SANTA BARBARA SCHOLARS shine lights on Latin America, the sprawling tangle of communities rich in histories and cultures. From the arts to human rights, the books weave the perspectives of diverse groups of writers in essays that critically explore and illuminate their

subjects. Here’s a look at each book: The first, “Caleidoscopio Verbal: Lenguas y Literaturas Originarias (Oro de la Noche Ediciones, 2021), is a coffee table book that arose from a 2018 conference of the same name, said Francisco Lomelí, a UCSB professor emeritus of Chicano and Chicana Studies and of Spanish and Portuguese who was a co-editor of both books. Sara Poot-Herrera, a professor of Spanish and Portuguese, and Osiris Gómez, then a UCSB Ph.D. candidate in Spanish and Portuguese, were co-editors. Gómez, now an assistant professor of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Minnesota, organized the conference and led the book project. He said the intent of the coffee table book was to bring together Indigenous scholars and writers, academics across disciplines, and a variety of works by Indigenous and non-indigenous artists. “We convened essays, visual art, poetry, and book reviews that examined the new waves of Indigenous intellectualisms and art practice,” Gómez said. “This is a monumental task, and in no way could we include the artists, writers, and intellectuals from all indigenous nations.” Poot-Herrera said the book deals with the resurgence of Francisco Lomelí literature in native languages “in terms of the rescue of native languages, their worldview, memory, and identity.” “Not only is it a return to the pre-Hispanic past,” she said, “but it is also the richness of the various present original cultural manifestations. Those are not isolated events, but a vibrant moment in several literary genres Sara Poot-Herrera and cultural manifestations previous to the Spanish conquest that still survive and thrive.” Lomelí noted that the book is one of the few attempts to emphasize native languages and literature from so many countries, including Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, Peru, Chile, Spain, and the U.S. It also includes samples of works in their original language Osiris Gómez and translations. “We also dreamed of having a visually provocative book and the images are in many cases quite stunning,” Lomelí said. The second book, Human Rights in the Americas (Routledge, 2021), features an interdisciplinary collection of critical studies on a wide assortment of related issues in the region. It was co-edited by María Herrera-Sobek, a UCSB professor emerita of Chicano and Chicana studies, Lomelí, and Luz Angélica Kirschner of South Maria Herrera-Sobek Dakota State University. “The collection of essays — written by leading scholars in Latin America, the United States, and Europe — highlights the important issue of human rights extant in the Latin American countries, including Brazil and the Caribbean,” Herrera-Sobek said. “The scholarly articles underscore the long tradition this subject has had since the European colonizing project began. The contributors explore the history, development, and evolution of this topic throughout the centuries.” Born of a conference of the same name spearheaded by UCSB in cooperation with the International Association of Inter-American Studies, the book features essays that address a wide assortment of topics, periods, categories, and disciplines, Lomelí said. Starting with 1492, he noted, the essays examine Eurocentric histories of human rights to bring a greater understanding of the conflicts experienced by the various cultures in contact and through this understanding provide insights and possible solutions. Lomelí noted the editors organized the topics around human rights in the following areas: Central America and the Caribbean; gender; dealing with Mexican Indigenous groups and Mexican Americans; Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Latinos/as and Latinos/as; and animal rights and posthuman rights.

How SB’s Latest Rental Development Scheme Could Remake Downtown into a Canyon of Tall Buildings By Jerry Roberts / Newsmakers / www.newsmakerswithjr.com


HEILA LODGE WROTE THE BOOK – literally – about the history of planning policy in Santa Barbara, and she doesn’t mince words about the latest bright idea before City Council to address our alleged “housing crisis.” The proposal, tagged with the beguiling name “Floor Area Ratio” (FAR), says the longtime Planning Commissioner and former Mayor, “should be dropped.” Policy wonk, urban planning author, and Pearl Chase successor, Commissioner Lodge responded in a Newsmakers interview to to the current City Hall debate over FAR, an abstruse but hugely consequential idea to spur construction of rental housing, being pushed by architects, builders, and a few proSheila Lodge development council members. As Josh Molina and Nick Welsh both have reported, the debate has been put on hold pending a ... wait for it ... new consultant’s report about options for where and how to build apartments and condos that the middle class – think teachers, cops, and firefighters – actually can afford. Sheila, wielding Actual Facts, figures, and the fundamentals of supply and demand, not to mention the laws of arithmetic, makes a persuasive case that substituting such a system – in which building size replaces the number of units as the key criteria in approval of multi-unit developments – not only would fail to meet the goals of churning out “affordable” housing but also pave the way for 60-foot buildings that might signal the end of Santa Barbara’s unique and carefully curated small town charm, design, and aesthetic. In our conversation, Lodge points to Santa Barbara’s high construction costs – three times the statewide per square foot average – provides a precise and favorable accounting of the current prorental development policy – that’s the AUD, not the ADU, for those trying to keep their acronyms straight – and offers historical perspective of how the city’s housing debate has been underway for over a century – her slim but indispensable volume, Santa Barbara: An Uncommonplace American Town/How Thoughtful Planning Shaped a City, should be required reading for anyone feeling the need to opine publicly on the issue. Along the way, she also offers some intriguing political observations – including her endorsements for Mayor and Council (spoiler alert: it’s Randy and Kristen).

A Conversation with the Director

The Light & Life of Local History


By Kerry Methner, PhD / VOICE

HINING WITH ADAPTABILITY AND INNOVATION, the Santa Barbara Historical Museum is among the many museums that call Santa Barbara home. Helmed by Dacia Harwood, wearing the titles of Deputy Director and Acting Director for nearly the last two years, the institution has successfully pivoted its programing during recent closures and, at the same time, continued to reach a wider and wider audience. Now that the Museum is in the process of re-opening, the staff’s enthusiasm to take its place serving the community has only grown. “We just love connecting with our visitors and seeing them get excited about Santa Barbara history,” Harwood enthused. The Museum’s collection boasts, “at least 100,000 objects,” according to Harwood. “They include clothing, furniture, artwork, saddles, jewelry, and so much more. Our permanent exhibition The Story of Santa Barbara, holds the highlights for all to view and we routinely share the others through our online collection, social media, and in our exhibitions.” And now that it is open Thursday to Saturday afternoons, visitors can choose between online and in person experiences. “We just opened Queen on a Hill: Santa Barbara Mission, Harwood shared. “In late June, Dacia Harwood, Deputy we will open Project Fiesta: A and Acting Director, SBHM History of Old Spanish Days focusing on the historical parade, which will be greatly missed by our community this year.” Also on view is Henry Chapman Ford, the Museum Collection, which opened shortly before the pandemic and will remain on exhibit through mid June. Not up for a Museum visit just yet? This Director recognizes that history is all around us in Santa Barbara. “The history of our community is on full display when you wander the streets of downtown... The architecture, and hidden bits of history, are something we hope are appreciated long after you visit our Museum. Santa Barbara is truly incredible because those before us understood how important it was to preserve our history. For example, the Covarrubias Adobe (1817) on our campus, it’s one of the few Spanish era landmarks that can be enjoyed as you walk up Santa Barbara Street,” enthused Harwood. Like most venues that have been closed to the public for most of the last year, SBHM was impacted by the pandemic. “Economically, the Museum was hard hit by a loss of rental revenue (over 50 weddings had to be re-

scheduled or canceled!). We also had to cancel La Fiesta Del Museo in 2020 and 2021....The good news is we took advantage of government support wherever we could, and most importantly, our members and donors have sustained us during this period. With only small adjustments to our staff, we actually accomplished several projects in our underground vault including a new storage system for both our 5,000+ costume collection and our 1,000+ Decorative Arts collection. Plus, we added in new HVAC to our vault to further safeguard our collection. We are not done, but well on our way to completing this very important project,” Harwood shared. Like turning the quiet time into an ideal time to get construction projects completed, the Museum also took a look at one of its very popular programs, and let it grow... “Our popular lectures moved online,” Harwood mentioned. “History Happy Hour became History Happy Hour at Home with over 25 presentations moved to Zoom.” And, “attendance has surpassed our usual in-person limitations and we’ve actually hosted over 5,000 attendees thus far.” The Zoom format also allows for recording so that viewers can watch later, and increasing the Museum’s online resources. Hardwood shared that on one lecture they had 1,000 views on their YouTube channel within one day of posting it! Moving forward, the plan is for “hybrid programming” with both in-person talks (outdoors for now) and also Zoom. “The biggest change we experienced was a broadening of our audience, she explained. “We connected with many former Santa Barbara residents who’ve enthusiastically embraced the series making them feel included in our programs. As we know, Santa Barbara is an international destination and our program attendees definitely reflect that.” A Pastoral Santa Barbara Mission California, c. 1890, Oil on canvas by Edwin Deakin History from Home, a newsletter was also created to share objects from the collection as part of a “virtual visit.” Because SBHM is a regular stop for elementary school field trips, they knew that they would need to step up there, too. “We created virtual programs for our elementary school visitors. In fact, we started doing that two weeks into the pandemic to provide the parents-at-home a little help!” For local Flamenco studios, the Museum was able to offer space for outside exercise sessions, allowing the studios to use the beautiful courtyard to prepare their students for the virtual Old Spanish Days Fiesta in 2020. That’s looking back... Looking forward, the Museum already has a pair of talks on the docket... “We are hosting a lecture by Neal Graffy in June. Then in July, Erin Graffy will be speaking (both in person and Zoom) about the history of Fiesta posters,” Harwood Flamenco Classes took place in the historical courtyard during the pandemic closure because outside exercise was allowed and local studios needed a place shared of upcoming programing. for their students to prepare for last year’s virtual Fiesta. And later this year... “This fall, we’ll be hosting an exhibition curated by Marlene Miller, Edward Borein and his Circle of Friends. As you know, the Museum has a permanent gallery dedicated to the artist, one of the finest interpreters of the American West. He is very important here locally and had an impressive circle of artist friends including Maynard Dixon, Joe DeYong, Alexander Harmer, and many others that will be on display. The exhibition is also in celebration of a major publication about Edward Borein that will be released by the Museum.” And, wedding have returned to this romantic hacienda and courtyard. The first, after a long hiatus, will be Friday, April 30th. Harwood also shared patrons should watch for some seated Flamenco events over the summer... It won’t be Del Museo, but perhaps another tradition is on the way to being born. Castle Rock by Henry Chapman Ford

Featured Lender of the Month ~ Meet Elizabeth “I love being part of this group! Each Leading Lender provides something valuable and unique to the group as a whole and to our clients collectively. I feel that, for my part, Bank of the West, as a bank and a portfolio lender (meaning we keep many of the loans on our books and don’t sell them) provides me with other options and often, greater flexibility. During these crazy times, many lenders got out of jumbo loans, interest only and cut programs. Bank of the West changed very few programs. For example, we still do cash-out loans even on investment properties. The lending world and its process isn’t what I would call “fun” now, but I love the consultative nature of the business and working with my clients in that capacity.”
