Man convicted of sex with teen caught teaching tennis lessons again

POT Santa Barbara goes back to

BY JOSHUA MOLINA DAILY SOUND EDITOR

Peter Aibor Jeschke, the tennis coach who was convicted of having sex with a 16-year-old girl in 2009, has been arrested again, for violating the terms of his probation. Jeschke, 37, was arrested after authorities learned that he was giving teenagers tennis lessons, without informing them of his criminal past. Witnesses reported seeing Jeschke giving tennis lessons to minors and told authorities, said Det. Jaycee Hunter, who arrested Jeschke.

Jeschke faces another trial later this year on charges of witness intimidation, after he allegedly asked several teenagers to call key witnesses and threaten them during his trial.

After losing a court ruling, the Santa Barbara City Council is considering a change to its 2010 medical marijuana dispensary ordinance, a move that could allow five dispensaries to operate within city limits. The City Attorney recommended changes to the ordinance after a recent court ruling against the city in a lawsuit by one of the dispensaries that was ordered to close down due to the new ordinances. Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider predicted an easy passage for changes, believing they were reasonable given the court rulings. “I hope to get a 7-0 vote out of it,” Schneider said. The trouble began when a number of dispensaries began cropping up in Santa Barbara in 2007-2008. In response, the city created zoning ordinances for dispensaries in March of 2008. Concern began to grow over the dispensaries as a number of them were accused of violating state laws. They were shut down or raided. In 2010, the city revisited its regulations, opting to change the ordinance, putting a limit on three dispensaries in the city. The city also extended the minimum distance that a dispensary could operate from a school from 500 to 600 feet. These changes put the Green Well, located 532 feet from Santa Barbara Junior High, in violation of the ordinance. The city gave the owners six months to close down their business. Instead, they sued, arguing that the city’s order violated their Constitutional rights. In a preliminary hearing, federal court judge Dean Pregerson granted them an injunction against the city’s order, writing that it violated their “due process”. According to the City Attorney, though a preliminary ruling isn’t final, it does indicate that Pregerson would likely side with the plaintiffs. Furthermore, Pregerson would also be presiding over a similar case with the Green Light dispensary on Olive Street, an area designated to be outside of the five zones permitted to operate dispensaries. No rulings have been made in that case yet, but the similarities suggest they

Jaime Merrick of Pacific Coast Collective worries that if other medical marijuana dispensaries will have an dvantage if they are not required to follow the 2010 amendments,

would not favor the city. On Jan. 11, City Attorney Stephen Wiley went to the City Ordinance Subcommittee to propose amending the City’s June ordinance to allow exemptions for the two dispensaries. Wiley stressed that the amendment would only exempt them from the zoning requirements provided by in the 2010 amendment. They would still have to comply with the 2008 ordinance and cannot cease operations for longer than 30 days. The subcommittee, composed of council members Frank Hotchkiss, Grant House, and Bendy White voted to approve the amendments. House cast the lone dissenting vote on the 2010 ordinance, citing the effect on the two dispensaries. Though they are “grandfathered” by the amendments, the dispensaries cannot transfer their permits to another operator. Should the operators leave or close down business, they could not be replaced. Owners of the Green Well and Green Light could not be reached for comment on how the amendments would affect their cases against the city. Jaime Merrick, operator of Pacific Coast Collective, said the amendments won't affect him directly as his location is within the 2010 guidelines. But Merrick said he and the other dispensaries are wondering if the Green Well and Green Light day-to-day operations

have to conform to the 2010 amendments. Merrick said that the new ordinance restricted membership to Santa Barbara City residents, required 24 hour confirmation period before a patient can use the dispensary’s service, put in a 6 p.m. curfew, and prevented operations on Sunday. The 2008 ordinance does not have these restrictions. “Is there going to be fair business practice enforced?” Merrick asked. “Or will these two clubs that have injunctions have an unfair business advantage over the store fronts that have been compliant?” Schneider doesn’t believe there will be any lingering effects on the city’s dispensary policies. She said the new guidelines were there to make sure the dispensaries were not clustered in one neighborhood. “My philosophy is to provide reasonable access for people who need and have doctor recommendations and also create enough regulation so that we know it’s a safe operation,” Schneider said. Marijuana dispensaries have been a heated topic in Santa Barbara politics. The council has tightened their restrictions on dispensaries over the years, and a ballot initiative, Measure T, banning dispensaries in the city lost at the polls in November amid a campaign that included vandalism on pro-T signs.

As many come and go, India House survives on the 400 block of State St.

Krishan Gupta, co-owner of India House on State Street, expanded from goods to a small restaurant, and is looking to add a buffet.

BY KYLE ROKES

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

Giant, corporate retail chains swapping space with giant, corporate retail chains on the 900 and 800 blocks of State Street has created a sonorous din. Corporate dollars, the critics squawk, are more important to the city than local identity. Meanwhile, the tone on the 400 block is a buzz. It’s known more for its raucous nightlife, a few restaurants and shops that have withstood the economic downturn, and a variety of characters less welcomed farther up the corridor. But the 400 block of State Street’s also prime real estate ready to pop. “It’s in transition,” says John Thyne, lawyer, broker and half of Goodwin and Thyne Properties, a group looking to fill the massive space at 424 State that used to be a Pep Boys complete with auto service center. “Yes, the block has struggled for its personality, but it’s definitely becoming a great place.” Thyne won’t say anything on the record, but he will share that they receive calls constantly about the property, and some options are more attractive than others. “There are a lot different ideas,” he says. “It’s an exciting block with a ton of potential.”

And whatever moves into the 424 address may very well turn the block’s fortunes around. “The 400 block is like a step-child the city’s left on its own,” says Krishan Gupta, co-owner with his wife Yana of India House.

‘Yes, the block has struggled for its personality, but it’s definitely becoming a great place.’

– JOHN THYNE

Technically, the Guptas started the India House on the 500 block, in the alley between the Church of Scientology and Pierre La Fond eight years ago, where they still operate. They sold imports from New Dehli, India, mostly tapestries, pillows, carved wooden pieces, and the like. And they still do, now they just have more room for inventory. Gupta says the city has yet to force them out of open space, even though some nearby property owners, he intimates, would very much like to snag it for another commercial-condominium

hybrid building. So, the Guptas still pay rent month to month there while they now operate the 27,000 square foot retail space one block away that opened its doors last April. And at the newer locale, the white haired Gupta says he averages 10 hour work days, pays the bills and the staff and is breaking even. “Surviving on State Street is not easy, but I am book smart and street smart,” he says, with emphasis on the word ‘and.’ To be sure, Gupta’s hit the books. He shares that he is an attorney, holds a Masters in Economics, and graduated the culinary program at SBCC years ago. “I always had the intention of opening a restaurant someday in Santa Barbara,” he says. Gupta and his family operated restaurants back in Queens, New York after they came to America 15 years ago. Before that, he says they had ones in Europe, including Berlin, which is where he moved after leaving India in 1982. Shortly after coming to Santa Barbara, Gupta says he started selling smaller pieces at the Veterans Memorial building. See INDIA, page 4

UCSB works with Belize officials to research Mayan city, El Pilar BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

UCSB researchers are teaming up with officials from Belize to study the ancient Mayan city of El Pilar. On Monday Belize representatives will sign a Memorandum of Understanding to start a research and management program called “Archeology Under the Canopy.” The event is hosted by Exploring Solutions Past: The Mayan Forest Alliance, a nonprofit conservation organization, and UCSB’s MesoAmerican Research Center. The signing will take place at 2 p.m. in the Chancellor’s Conference Room at Cheadle Hall and there will also be a reception for the dignitaries.

Green jobs growing faster than total California employment INDIA

From January 2008 to 2009, the most recent observable year, jobs in the green sector grew more than three times faster (3 percent) than total employment in California (1 percent). And the rate of growth of green jobs has been similar to that of software jobs since 2005, according to new statistics released by Next 10. The "Many Shades of Green" report states that the core green economy now accounts for 174,000 jobs in California. "The green job data is significant because these jobs are growing in every region across the state, outpacing other vital sectors, and generating business across the supply chain," said F. Noel Perry, founder of Next 10. "There are very few business sectors in a state as large as California that employ people across every region. The emergence of this vibrant Core Green Economy can be attributed to California's history of innovation, as well as our forward-looking energy and energy efficiency policies."

Giffords flies to rehab center

U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords arrived in Texas on Friday to start the next phase of her recovery at a Houston rehabilitation center following 13 days of treatment at an Arizona hospital for a gunshot wound to the head. Doctors told a news conference after the congresswoman's arrival that Giffords' transfer went "flawlessly." They said she would begin physical therapy on Friday but remain for now in the intensive care unit because of a drain in place to remove a buildup of fluid in her skull, which puts her at higher risk for infection. Giffords, 40, left Tucson's University Medical Center by ambulance earlier in the day and was flown from an Air Force base in Arizona to a Houston airport aboard a private jet owned by Texas billionaire Tilman Fertitta. She and her entourage were then whisked by three helicopters to the rooftop of the Memorial Hermann hospital, and she was admitted to the neurological-trauma intensive care unit for immediate evaluation. The Institute for Rehabilitation and Research at the hospital is renowned for its treatment of brain and spinal cord injuries. Once she is out of the intensive care unit, doctors said, she still faces at least four to six months of intensive therapy to recover.

It now sits at the heart of a 5,000 acre archaeological reserve that links Belize and Guatemala. UCSB archeologist Anabel Ford mapped out the city of El Pilar on the border between Belize and Guatemala in 1983. She started a preservation campaign in 1993 and the site now has protected status in both countries. This Memorandum renews the agreement between UCSB and Belize have had since 2005.

ness. And in a step toward that eventual restaurant, Gupta now serves a brief but robust menu while he waits on the city to OK his new buffet station. Jacinto’s in the kitchen slow cooking three kinds of curry and the clay oven imported from Germany is already fired up. Gupta says the curries are all family recipes and the naan, a rich and chewy Indian flat bread, is made fresh in the oven for each order. So Gupta may well achieve his Santa Barbara dream of a restaurant, perhaps as part or replacement of India House’s massive location. There’s another way the Guptas get some of their larger wooden sculptures

That UCSB can foster this relationship is proof of forward thinking. Here is where the past can help the future of the Maya forest.”

Wholesale, dining, party rentals and even his wife Yana’s interior decoration, it seems another key to the Gupta’s success on the 400 block is innovation and flexibility. Gupta’s own transition to the block may prove helpful advice, from the street smart aspiring restaurateur to his future next door neighbor. “Now, if you’ll excuse me,” says Gupta as two of the first planners arrive, “I must unwrap the camels.”

Max Returns Minimize Risk

Dear S&B: How do I earn solid investment returns but also protect myself as well? The story of having one’s cake and eating it too. Bobby – Santa Barbara

There are four fundamental things you can do with your investment portfolio to help address your question. Let’s investigate “super” diversification, rebalancing, tactical tax planning and time vs. timing. Everyone by now knows the story of diversification. But that can mean different things to different people. In order to reduce risk in a portfolio, it is academically wise to use investments that have different correlations to one another. Simply put, investments that don’t typically react the same way during times change. As the financial system has become more “global” in nature, diversification strategies are becoming more sophisticated and necessary. The use of foreign denominated currency investments, alternative trading strategies and new asset classes are becoming more commonplace for instance. That does not mean that they may be appropriate for you, but it does mean that you should investigate whether or not a more diversified strategy makes sense. It is often the case that mixing in “risky” investments into a portfolio can mathematically lower risk assumptions and increase probable returns. Do a little homework on “modern portfolio theory” and “efficient frontier” methodologies.

Jeschke was found guilty of sexual penetration by a foreign object, three counts of oral copulation and two counts of unlawful sexual intercourse, as well as a misdemeanor charge for possession of marijuana, by a jury in May of 2009, in a case prosecuted by then deputy district attorney Joyce Dudley. Dudley is now the District FROM PAGE 1

Ask Seth & Brad

Historically speaking, the only real way to reduce risks and gain solid returns is to have time on your side. And throw in some patience into the mix as well. One of the best ways to reduce long term risk in a portfolio is through rebalancing in our opinion. This is the process of resetting your portfolio back to the original mixture on a regular basis. Quarterly would be our recommendation. According to various Morningstar reports, this process resulted in portfolio risk reductions as high as 15%+. What does this force you to do? In summary, it usually makes you trim Attorney. At the time, Dudley said if Jeschke violated his probation, he could be sentenced to the full prison term of seven years and eight months. According to the police report, Jeschke faces another trial later this year on charges of witness intimidation, after he allegedly asked several teenagers to call key witnesses and threaten them during his trial. Jeschke served as a volunteer for the boys tennis team at Santa Barbara

back holdings that have increased out of proportion to other investments and to add to those that have not done as well. Yes, this means selling some of your winners and buying the losers. Another way of looking at it may be selling positions at a “high” and buying others at a “low?” People don’t like doing this. They would rather chase winners and if you have reviewed any of the data we have provided over the years, you know that is a general recipe for disaster. Tactical tax trading does not reduce risk but it can reduce your tax bills and that translates into more money in your pocket. Pay attention to tax lots and the holding periods of your investments. The more diversified your portfolio, the easier it generally is to be strategic in your trading decisions. We often times recommend having a larger long term positions as well as a smaller “trading” investments. This allows you to choose which vehicle makes the most sense when rebalancing your account. Historically speaking, the only real way to reduce risks and gain solid returns is to have time on your side. And throw in some patience into the mix as well. If everyone could make tons of money with no risks and do it overnight, then that opens up a whole different philosophical discussion.

High School in spring 2006 before being hired as an assistant coach for both tennis teams. The victim’s friends apparently learned of a sexual relationship between the 16-year-old student and the then-34-year-old tennis coach, leading to his arrest. This time, according to the police report, Jeschke was working as a selfemployed tennis coach. Det. Hunter said Jeschke is still in County Jail.


Warhols for Target Practice and Other Art Thievery ANTIQUES

Clients always ask how to safeguard precious art and antiques, and my advice is – don’t mess with furniture or art. It is true that a refinished 18th C. piece will be devalued if the nice old finish is removed, but the same advice may not hold for a more common late 19th C. piece. Usually a damaged work of art will not be worth as much as a perfect example; the exception to this is a work which, even damaged, is so rare it retains value. Recently the famous actor Dennis Hopper’s estate had a nice surprise when his Warhol screen-print, estimated at $20-30,000 sold for $302,500 at Christies auction on January 12, 2011. Why the huge sales amount? Well, Mr. Hopper came home one late night and believed his screen-print of Mao Zedong looked especially frightening; therefore he grabbed his pistol and shot two bullet holes into Mao’s face. Andy Warhol was amused by this story and signed one big hole “Warning Shot”, and the other “Bullet Hole”. Thus the damage did not devalue the print, it increased the value greatly. But I wouldn’t try that at home tonight. Theft is another way to ruin value. Surprisingly some famous art thefts actually increase the notoriety of a work of art, if the artwork is recovered. My favorite story regards the Mona Lisa by Da Vinci, which was stolen on August 21, 1911 from the Louvre by employee Vincenzo Peruggia, who allegedly had the original masterpiece copied four times before it was recovered 2-years later. Art experts have never found the copies, which lead some to speculate if the little lady at the Louvre is in fact the original. In 1934 two panels of the glorious Ghent Altarpiece by the Van Eyck brothers were stolen by thief Arsene Goodertier, who, although he sent ransom letters, died without dough. The panel, which was hidden, has never been found. One of my appraiser colleagues in New York City was the expert in the trial regarding the theft of a beautiful 16th C. German Illuminated gold and silver and bejeweled manuscript. In 1945, during the war, American soldier Joe Meador stole this irreplaceable tome and kept it quietly on the bookshelf at his farm in Texas until he died in 1980.

The City’s contact for this project is Frank Cunningham, Project Manager, 805-564-5395.

Project Addendum notifications will be issued through Ebidboard.com. Although Ebidboard will fax and/or email all notifications once they are provided contact information, bidders are still responsible for obtaining all addenda from the Ebidboard website or the City’s website at: http://www.santabarbaraca.gov/Business/Purchasing/Projects/.

Bidders are advised that this project is a Federal-Aid Construction project and the Contractor shall agree to all requirements, conditions, and provisions set forth in the specification book issued for bidding purposes entitled “Proposal and Contract.” Attention is directed to Section B2 of the “Proposal and Contract” specification book for federal requirements and conditions, as well as documents required to be submitted with this proposal request. This project is subject to the “Buy America” provisions of the Surface Transportation Assistance Act of 1982 as amended by the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991.

Bidders are hereby notified that pursuant to provisions of Section 1770, et seq., of the Labor Code of the State of California, the Contractor shall pay its employees the general prevailing rate of wages as determined by the Director of the Department of Industrial Relations. In addition, the Contractor shall be responsible for compliance with the requirements of Section 1777.5 of the California Labor Code relating to apprentice public works contracts.

Attention is directed to the Federal minimum wage rate requirements in Appendix D of the specification book entitled “Proposal and Contract.” Addenda to modify the Federal minimum wage rates, if necessary, will be issued to holders of the “Proposal and Contract” specification books. Future effective general prevailing wage rates, which have been predetermined and are on file with the California Department of Industrial Relations, are referenced but not printed in the general prevailing wage rates. If there is a difference between the minimum wage rates predetermined by the Secretary of Labor and the general prevailing wage rates determined by the Director of the California Department of Industrial Relations for similar classifications of labor, the Contractor and Subcontractors shall pay not less than the higher wage rate. The City of Santa Barbara will not accept lower State wage rates not specifically included in the Federal minimum wage determinations. This includes “helper” (or other classifications based on hours of experience) or any other classification not appearing in the Federal wage determinations. Where Federal wage determinations do not contain the State wage determination otherwise available for use by the Contractor and Subcontractors, the Contractor and Subcontractors shall pay not less than the Federal Minimum wage rate which most closely approximates the duties of the employees in question. Per California Civil Code Section 3247, a payment bond in the amount of 100% of the bid total will be required from the successful bidder for bids exceeding $25,000. The bond must be provided within 10 calendar days from notice of award and prior to the performance of any work. The City of Santa Barbara hereby notifies all bidders that it will affirmatively insure that in any contract entered into pursuant to this advertisement, minority business enterprises will be afforded full opportunity to submit bids in response to this invitation and will not be discriminated against on the grounds of race, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, sexual orientation, political affiliations or beliefs, sex, age, physical disability, medical condition, marital status or pregnancy as set forth hereunder.

Bidders are also advised that there is a goal specified for Underutilized Disadvantaged Business Enterprises (UDBE) for this contract of 8%. Bidders must meet this goal or demonstrate that adequate good faith efforts to meet this goal have been made as outlined in Section B2.

Sundance debuts with Belafonte documentary

REUTERS NEWS SERVICE The Sundance Film Festival opened on Thursday night with a new look -- four feature films instead of only one, including a documentary about calypso singer Harry Belafonte and a teen lesbian drama. The documentary, "Sing Your Song," follows the social activism of the 83-year-old singer of "Banana Boat Song" and "Scarlet Ribbons." Belafonte has been at the vanguard of the U.S. civil rights movement, anti-apartheid efforts in South Africa and ending gang violence on the streets of Los Angeles. Sundance founder Robert Redford called Belafonte's tale "a story about a man whose story should be told for generations to come," and the documentary earned a standing ovation. The other screenings included: "Pariah," the tale of a young black lesbian who yearns to come out of the closet; "The Guard," an Irish buddy-cop comedy starring Don Cheadle and Brendan Gleeson; and "Project Nim," a British documentary about a chimpanzee raised as a human being in an ethically questionable experiment. The annual showcase for independent movies runs through January 30, and takes place as bold discoveries from last year's event, including "The Kids Are All Right" and "Winter's Bone," vie for attention during Hollywood's awards season.

Sundance chief programer John Cooper, in his second year at the helm, told Reuters that this year's selection of some 115 feature films reflects a desire among directors to look reality squarely in the face and build stories around how they fit into that world. "They are sticking more to the truth within themselves and the stories they have to tell," Cooper said. "There are several films dealing with religion, faith and redemption, and we kind of can't help but think it has something to do with the world we are living in." Coming into the festival there are, as always, movies generating industry buzz, including "Little Birds," about two teenage girls (portrayed by Juno Temple and Kay Panabaker) learning about life and love, and "The Ledge" in which two men are forced to examine their lives. Numerous stars will again turn out on the snowy streets of Park City, a ski resort east of Salt Lake City. Oprah Winfrey is expected to promote documentaries on her new OWN TV network. Money will be on the minds of distributors and financiers looking to scoop up the next "The Kids Are All Right", paying small for a big box office hit. After about three tough years, experts say business is looking up, if conducted sensibly.
