Bening’s Big Night

Annette Bening receives the American Riviera Award at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival

DAILY SOUND EDITOR

If you are a shopper who loves your plastic bags, don’t worry. Santa Barbara isn’t ready to ban the convenient sacks just yet. But the city is considering making the voluntary “Where’s Your Bag?” Program mandatory. The move would force businesses to place signs and train its staff to encourage shoppers to use reusable bags. The ordinance would also require business owners to provide more data on how many plastic and paper bags people use.

‘If we are going to do this because it is the right thing for the environment, why are we taking such baby steps?’

After a disappointing 2010 season for SBCC’s men’s volleyball, new head coach Armen Zakarian is confident a strong middle attack will lead them to a winning season in 2011.

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak refused demands that he quit, and sent in the army to quell protests against his 30-year-rule. After three days of protest, 24 people have been killed and thousands injured.

“The best thing Santa Barbara can do, as many cities across California and the world are doing, is to ban plastic bags,” said Kira Redmond, executive director of the Santa Barbara Channelkeeper. “Santa Barbara has been a leader in so many environmental areas, but on plastic bags we are really laggards. It’s embarrassing and not OK. Just making signage mandatory isn’t going to do the trick.” Still Redmond and her group believe the proposal is a good first step. The City Council is set to discuss the matter at its Tuesday meeting. The sevenmember panel is likely to refer the proposal to the ordinance committee. Representatives from The Channel Keeper, the Where’s Your Bag program and other environmental groups are rallying supporters to appear at Tuesday’s council meeting.

Bening lights up the Arlington, receives prestigious award BY MICHAEL BOWKER

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

Friday night at the Arlington Theatre, Annette Bening did what she does best, prove that there is enormous strength in feminity. Gracious, articulate and generous with her comments on life and acting, Bening entertained and charmed a full house as the Santa Barbara International Film Festival celebrated its second night. “A movie can go inside a person,” Bening told the audience, as she conversed with Film Festival Executive Director Roger Durling in a “talk show” setting that clearly worked. “It is a joy for an actor to attempt to help make that happen.” Bening was in town to receive the American Riviera Award presented for the 8th year by the Film Festival, honoring actors for their career work. After the chat with Durling, she was

given the award by actor Kevin Costner. She arrived at the Arlington and walked the familiar red carpet before the press accompanied by her husband, actor Warren Beatty. But it was during the discussion period with Durling that the evening really took off. Bening talked for more than an hour, mostly about the process of acting. “You are your character’s advocate, their ally,” she said, clearly relaxed and enjoying the chance to talk about her profession. She discussed the challenge of all artists – how to reach into the subconscious for the “rich stuff” that resides there. “That’s what actors and artists talk about all the time,” she said with a laugh. “How to capture that thing that you don’t know what it is.” Throughout the evening, Bening was candid and comfortable with her comments. “Yes, she said at one point,

“if I wear a different pair of shoes it affects the way I feel about myself. You have to know those kinds of things about yourself to be an effective actor.” Bening and Beatty got high marks from attendees for signing autographs with many of the people coming to the theater. “They were wonderful,” said Candace Williams, who works for the theater and is in charge of just about everything at the Arlington. “Sandra Bullock was the same way last year, but James Cameron, (producer of Avatar, Titanic and other films), gets a thumbs down. He didn’t want to talk to anybody. He shouldn’t be that way because if it wasn’t for us, they’d have to get a job. And what would they do? I wonder.” Somehow, after listening to her Friday night, you get the feeling that Bening would do just fine.

Makers of ‘Skateistan’ visit SB Middle School NEWS

BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

John Seigel-Boettner, Dean of 6th and 7th grade at Santa Barbara Middle School stands in the school’s quad and addresses the throng of students clutching skateboards and helmets. “On a Friday afternoon, to have everybody in your middle school bring their skateboards is like the stupidest thing you could ever do,” Seigel-Boettner said. “It’s crazy, nuts — almost as nuts going to skate in Afghanistan.” Of course, the filmmakers Seigel-Boettner then introduced did just that. They’re the makers of “Skateistan: Four Wheels and a Board in Kabul,” a documentary about a group of aid workers who went to Afghanistan and taught kids on the streets of Kabul how to ride a skateboard, opening Afghanistan’s first coeducational skateboarding school. The film takes the viewer through the bustle of city life in Kabul, interviews with families, skateboarding instructors and students, and the cross-cultural bonds that are forged through the common love of a clean kickflip. Santa Barbara Middle School has a long history of student bike trips around the country. Seigel-Boettner said that strong friendships are forged while on those roads, and students can relate to the Afghan school’s experience even if their ride has four wheels instead of two. “Even in what we might think of as the most awful places, the wheels stop us and bring us together,” Seigel-Boettner said. After a brief introduction, students gathered around Louisa Menke, one of the skateboard instructors featured in the movie, and showed their moves to the sound of “Iron Man” playing in the background. The proficiencies ranged from smooth jumpers and kick flippers, to the few who seemed happy to skate across the quad without falling. Headmaster Brian McWilliams admitted the skateboarding lead made him “fret like a concerned parent,” but later said it’s part of Santa Barbara Middle School’s innovative

FYI

“Skateistan: Four Wheels and a Board in Kabul” is playing at the Lobero Theater on Jan. 29 at 7 p.m., and at the Metro 4 on Jan. 31 and Wednesday Feb. 2nd at 10:20 a.m. and 11 a.m. respectively.

approach to teaching. “You never know when you’re going to get a learning opportunity,” said McWilliams. “Sometimes you’re going to get them in class or on a bike or at the beach, and sometimes you’re going to get them on a skateboard.” “Skateistan” producer René Kock said the project got started when aid workers brought a few skateboards with them to Afghanistan. The children there had never seen one before and children from all walks of Kabul life gathered to watch them skate. Seeing the mix of wealthy, poor, and middle income boys and girls gave them the idea to use skateboarding as a way to bring them all together. “They found out it was a very simple tool to connect with the kids,” Kock said. Menke said she had been amazed at how the students cooperated and pushed each other to learn. She also noted the skating conditions in Kabul were much different than in America. In the footage, one skateboarder accidentally flips his board into a street gutter, pulls it out of the urban muck, and jumps back on. Menke admits that seems a little gross, but it shows the dedication of the student. “It’s very inspiring,” Menke said. Executive producer Ken Meyer said it’s one of life’s little ironies that in 1980 he was working on another documentary about Afghanistan — following the mujahedeen as they fought the Soviet Union. Thirty years later, he’s moved from war to peace. “We just want as many people to see it as possible and fall in love with it,” Meyer said. “It would be great if people could be inspired to do what people who are actually in the film are doing.”

Egypt's Mubarak sends in army, refuses to quit BY EDMUND BLAIR

REUTERS NEWS SERVICE

Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak refused on Saturday to bow to demands that he resign after ordering troops and tanks into cities in an attempt to quell an explosion of street protests against his 30-year rule. Demonstrators were still out in the streets in the early hours of Saturday morning, as were looters. Parts of Cairo looked like a war zone, filled with smoke, rubble and the choking smell of tear gas. Mubarak dismissed his government and called for national dialogue to avert chaos after

a day of battles between police and protesters angry over poverty and autocratic rule. Medical sources said at least 24 people had been killed and over a thousand injured in clashes in Cairo, Suez and Alexandria. "It is not by setting fire and by attacking private and public property that we achieve the aspirations of Egypt and its sons, but they will be achieved through dialogue, awareness and effort," he said in a televised address, his first public appearance since the protests began four days ago. The unprecedented unrest has sent shock See PROTESTS, page 5

When asked if the 2011 SBCC men’s volleyball team would be better than last year, returning setter Kaahukane Leite-Ah Yo didn’t hesitate. “For sure,“ said the 6-3 sophomore from Kamehamea High in Hilo, Hawaii. “Guaranteed.“ Three starters return from last year’s 8-9 edition that went 3-7 and finished fifth out of six teams in the Western State Conference. “We have guys with more experience,” said Leite-Ah Yo. “And the returners from last year have made great improvements.

Jared Loughner hearings headed PLASTIC to Tucson: court

Court proceedings against accused Tucson shooter Jared Loughner are set to move to a U.S. federal court in Tucson, after the prosecution and defense reached agreement, court documents showed on Friday Prosecutor Wallace Kleindienst and Loughner's attorney Judy Clarke agreed proceedings should "be held in the Tucson Division, without waiving the right of either party to raise motions or objections to venue in the future," according to documents filed in U.S. District Court in Phoenix. Loughner, a 22-year old college dropout, pleaded not guilty in the Phoenix court on Monday to federal charges of attempting to assassinate U.S. Representative Gabrielle Giffords and attempting to murder two of her staff members. He is accused of opening fire on Giffords and a crowd of bystanders outside a grocery store on January 8, killing six people, including a federal judge, and wounding 13. Giffords was shot in the head but survived. The agreement between the two sides would still have to be formally approved by Judge Larry Burns, the San Diego federal justice who is hearing the case, the U.S. Attorney's Office said on Friday. In a motion filed last Sunday, prosecutors sought to shift any future proceedings against Loughner to Tucson, citing the principle that defendants stand trial in the jurisdiction where their alleged crimes took place.

Pentagon releases guidelines for repealing gay policy

New Pentagon rules allowing gays to serve openly in the military prohibit separate bathroom facilities based on sexual orientation and say that not all benefits will be extended to same sex dependents. The Pentagon issued new guidelines on Friday as a first step to ending the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy that forces gays to keep their preferences secret in order to serve in the military. The new guidelines ask the military top brass for precise plans within a week to implement the policy. It says that while some benefits such as choosing the beneficiaries of life insurance and death gratuities are a matter of individual preference of service personnel, federal laws such as the Defense of Marriage Act mean certain benefits that go to married couples will not apply to same-sex partnerships. "Strong, engaged and informed leadership will be required at every level to implement the repeal of (Don't Ask, Don't Tell) properly, effectively, and in a deliberate and careful manner," Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said in the guidelines.

FROM PAGE 1 many European countries have embraced the model where customers bring their own bags, the culture in California and the nation is still that the store will supply the bags. Environmentalists believe that the production of plastic bags harms the environment and that very few of the bags are actually recycled. Many of the bags, which essentially do not disintegrate, end up in creeks and the ocean, polluting waterways. Marine mammals such as sea turtles and birds die every year from ingesting plastic bags, which they mistake for food. Californians use about 19 billion plastic bags per year. The bags are also a major source of litter on the beaches, in the creeks, and on streets and highways. “There are significant environmental

skill and that makes our practices better.” The Vaqueros open on Saturday at the 12-team Long Beach Invitational. The other returning starters are 6-5 Justin Hertlein and 6-7 Cody Zoesch of Dos Pueblos High. Armen Zakarian is the new head coach and at 26, he’s the youngest coach of SBCC’s 17 intercollegiate teams. “We’re going to be strong through the middle,” said Zakarian, a former SBCC and UCSB star. “When we can control the ball, we’ll be deadly up the middle.” Zakarian said the return of Kyle Benskin, a 6-5 sophomore from Dos

Pueblos, will also be a key to success. Benskin played for the Vaqueros a few years ago. “He’s going to clog the middle and be a big force blocking,” Zakarian noted. “He’ll definitely be one of our captains.” Bernardino Garcia and Morgan Youngs, a pair of sophomores from Carpinteria High, are also expected to challenge for starting spots along with a trio of 6-3 freshman -- Logan Weis, Brock Skriloff and Justin Carroll. Michael Naki also figures to see action at outside hitter. Jacob Jenkins, a freshman from Kamehameha High, will be the libero. See VOLLEYBALL, page 7

impacts from the use of plastic bags,” Redmond said. “We need to shift to reusable bags quickly as possible.” Steve Cushman, executive director of the Santa Barbara Region Chamber of Commerce, is supportive of making the voluntary signage program mandatory. In his experience, he said, businesses support the idea. “The impact of this is fairly minimal,” Cushman said. He wondered why the city wasn’t doing more. “If we are going to do this because it is the right thing for the environment, why are we taking such baby steps?” Cushman said. For now, making the Where’s Your Bag? program mandatory seems like a good first step. “It does seem to be the right thing to do,” Cushman said. “I think people will embrace it in the end.” Many environmentalists have pushed

for a statewide law so that cities would not be forced to implement conflicting policies. Lawmakers pushed a proposal to tax the use of plastic bags last summer, but political opponents shot down the proposal. “Everything we do at the local level will have an impact on the state level,” said Kathi King, a partner in the Where’s Your Bag? program. “We are hoping for even-handed state legislation.”

Financial Rabbit Holes ASK S&B

Do you ever struggle with greed and fear emotions when dealing with finances? Do cable news programs and internet articles add more fuel to the fire? Let’s touch on the main financial “rabbit hole” discussions that are going on today and tackle these practically. Yes, this will be tough to take emotions out of the picture but we must do so. Will California and other states fail and all my bonds be worthless? While some failures are probable, massive defaults are possible but highly unrealistic. Our January 15th article goes in depth into the struggles facing California but keep in mind that 7 percent of Sacramento’s receipts go toward paying interest and principal on their debts. To put that into perspective, many homeowners have 30 percent or more of their paychecks going toward their home payments. California has a spending problem and their situation is fixable but they must get on it. Higher taxes and fewer services should narrow the gaps in their budgets rather quickly. The legal issues surrounding bankruptcy with municipalities is complex. Though history may not repeat itself, just do a little searching and see what has happened in the past when troubles occur – you may be surprised by what you find out (this is why municipal bonds are considered the 2nd safest types of bonds behind the federal government issues). Aren’t we going to have massive inflation and our money will become

I bought a few of the $100 trillion dollar Zimbabwe notes recently as a reminder of how monetary forms can be destroyed (people today are pointing to the actions of the Federal Reserve and the government in this regard). There are ultimately two rabbit holes this argument ends up going down – the first being Gold or some other form of non-fiat hard currency is the solution.

More than half of the dead in Friday's clashes were reported in Suez, the eastern city which has been ground zero for the most violent protests over the past four days. Mubarak, 82, has been a close ally of Washington and beneficiary of U.S. aid for decades, justifying his autocratic rule in part by citing a danger of Islamist militancy. The Muslim Brotherhood opposition, however, appears to have played little role in the unrest. The protests were triggered by the overthrow two weeks ago of Tunisian President Zine al-Abidine Ben Al Ben Ali. Street protests in Tunis focused on similar issues of poverty and political repression. Demonstrations have also

calamity to occur to either be right or take advantage of. Though timing the “bottom” is really tough. Did it occur last year? A hyperinflation type of event could happen in the United States, but we think people should view this as a probability/magnitude trade-off. Yes, an outright hyper-inflation in the United States would have a huge magnitude outcome into all our life savings and is worth guarding against… but how high is the probability? We think rather remote, so not something we would bet the farm on. What is more likely is that the Fed will continue to over and under shoot on monetary policy because the data comes in with sizeable lag times and we will be forced to deal with volatility, speculation and panic so long as the Fed meddles in the financial markets. The best strategies may be to have multiple asset classes in a portfolio that you rebalance when you have the opportunity to sell risk assets high and re-deploy into fixed income and cash when it is cheap (and vice versa). Maybe only take on the risks you are comfortable with? Always be careful of taking on too much investment risk or too little. Mistakes on either side may become unrecoverable as you can fall way behind. If you have a questions you would like answered, please submit them to asksb@missionwealth.com.

"There will be new steps toward democracy and freedoms and new steps to face unemployment and increase the standard of living and services, and there will be new steps to help the poor and those with limited income," Mubarak said. "There is a fine line between freedom and chaos and I lean toward freedom for the people in expressing their opinions as much as I hold on to the need to maintain Egypt's safety and stability," he added. Obama also called on the Egyptian government to halt interference in access to the Internet, mobile phone service and Internet social networks that have been used by protesters. "I want to be very clear in calling upon the Egyptian authorities to refrain from any violence against peaceful protesters," he said.

Bird brains should not have access to them. I keep a Browning automatic 12G shotgun as well as a Smith and Wesson 35 cal revolver for personal hunting and safety so am not totally anti-gun.

Roadshow Comes to Goleta Next Week! By Jason Delong

Treasure Hunters Roadshow STAFF WRITER Clean out your attics, closets and lock boxes because the Roadshow is coming to Goleta. Roadshow experts will be in town examining antiques, collectibles, gold and silver. While the Roadshow will accept anything that’s old, they will be focusing on gold and silver coins made before 1964, military items, toys and trains, musical instruments, pocket and wrist watches. Scrap gold is expected to be a popular category this week due to soaring gold prices.

“U.S. coins made before 1964 are most sought after by collectors. Coins made before 1964 are 90% silver and valuable because of the silver content or could be worth even more if one happens to be a rare date.� Expert buyers for the Roadshow have noticed a tremendous increase in the amount of gold coming to the Roadshow and for good reason. Record gold prices have Roadshow guests cashing in on broken jewelry or jewelry they don’t wear anymore with our “fair and honest� purchase offers.

Got Gold? Next week, visitors can cash in on antiques, collectibles, gold, silver, coins or just about anything that is old. The Roadshow encourages anyone planning a visit to take a minute and examine their jewelry box or their lock box at the bank and gather anything that’s gold. If a guest is not sure if something is gold, bring it anyway and the Roadshow staff will test it for free. Other gold items of interest include gold coins, gold ounces, gold proof sets and dental gold. Other types of items Roadshow experts hope to see include old toys and train sets. Archie Davis, toy roadshow expert spoke about some of the top toys getting great offers. “Old tin windup toys from the late 1800’s through the 1960’s are in great demand now,� said Davis, “Especially those that are character related. Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, the Flintstones or any character toys are sought. Old Buddy L toys from the 1920’s to 1960’s are in demand.� Basically

any toys made before 1965 are wanted. Train sets made by Lionel, American Flyer, Marklin and others have the potential to fetch a large sum. Davis also stressed, “Toys with boxes and in mint condition bring sensational prices. Most of the toys that come

to the Roadshow are not in perfect shape but can still bring good prices from collectors.� When expert Tom Fuller was asked what he enjoyed most about working at the Roadshow, he was quick to answer, “Old coins and paper currency. For as

long as I can remember I have been fascinated with collecting coins. I would go through the change in my parents grocery store looking for rare dates and errors. Once, I found a silver quarter that I sold for $300.00. Not bad for an 8 year old.� Fuller went on to explain that any U.S. coins made before 1964 are most sought after by collectors. Coins made before 1964 are 90% silver and valuable because of the silver content or

“If you go to the Roadshow, you can cash-in your items for competitive prices. Roadshow representatives will be available to assess and purchase your items at the Hampton Inn, next Tuesday through Saturday, in Goleta.�
