Japanese rescue workers search through rubble in front of a Shinto shrine in residential area of tsunami hit Otsuchi

FUKUSHIMA, Japan (Reuters) — Japan's prime minister warned this morning that radioactive levels had become high around an earthquakestricken nuclear power plant after explosions at two reactors, adding that the risk of more radioactive leakage was rising. Naoto Kan urged people within 18 miles of the facility north of Tokyo to remain indoors. The French embassy in the capital warned in an advisory that a low level of radioactive wind could reach Tokyo — 150 miles south of the plant — in about 10 hours. The reactor operator asked the U.S. military for help, while Kyodo news agency said radiation levels nine times normal levels had been briefly detected in Kanagawa near See JAPAN, page 10

(Reuters) — U.S. stocks fell in the aftermath of Japan's devastating earthquake yesterday, but other than specific industries such as nuclear power, the broad impact on equities was expected to be short-lived. Trading volume was unusually low compared with other sell-offs, coming in at 7.68 billion shares traded on the New York Stock Exchange, the American Stock Exchange and Nasdaq, below last year's daily average of 8.47 billion.

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

Santa Barbara city leaders today will decide whether to move a controversial detox center out of the Casa Esperanza homeless shelter and into a house near downtown. The Santa Barbara City Council will likely approve $865,000 in grant money to the city’s Housing Authority to buy a house at 1020 Placido Avenue to be a new home for the program. The center, run by the Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse, has long been part of the Casa Esperanza homeless shelter, but both sides believe it’s time to

part ways. The 12-bed detox center has been located at Casa Esperanza, 816 Cacique Street, since 2004. In the past year, however, there’s been a surge in mentally ill shelter residents and Casa is beginning to need more space. The increasing service demands at the center make it difficult to maintain the tranquil environment required of a detox center. Mike Foley, executive director of Casa Esperanza, said the absence of the detox center would give Casa more space for educational purposes and provide better control over the coming and going of residents. The center started at Casa as part of the

shelter’s goal of being a central location for all homeless services. This included a detox facility. However, the idea behind the shelter is to get people to use services they need regardless of their sobriety. But in a detox center like Project Recovery, residents have made a commitment to get off drugs and alcohol. The center has strict rules about what residents can and can’t do. They are monitored around the clock, have a set schedule, and cannot consume drugs and alcohol—none of which can be said about Casa residents. “You want to create an environment See DETOX, page 10

Local raises funds for Japan NEWS

BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

In the 10 years that Lia Suzuki trained in Japan, she would get laughed at whenever she ran to a doorway after feeling the ground shake. “They were always so cool about it,” Suzuki said. “So when I saw them running out of buildings, I knew, ‘Oh my gosh, something big is going on here,’” Suzuki now runs Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara, an aikido school in Santa Barbara, and is planning fundraisers to help the country that helped give her a 15-year-and-counting career as an aikido instructor. Since turning her studio into a nonprofit in 2009, Suzuki has learned a lot about fundraising to sponsor low-income students, managing to raise money from places like Scotland, Macedonia, and of course, Japan. Those efforts helped her to move classes out of a community church and into a larger dojo on East Mason Street. Now she’s going to use space in that very dojo to return the favor. “We’ve had so much support from Japan over the years,” Suzuki said, “Why not now give back?” Wednesdays, the dojo will host a 15minute meditation session called “Gasshou”—which means “putting the

palms together”—where participants of any age, aikido practitioner or not, can meditate, pray, or just sit on the mat in silence. The session has a suggested donation of $10. In addition, the normal 6:30 p.m. adult class will be a “Gohdoh Keiko”—meaning joint class—where aikido practitioners from anywhere are invited to come to

the dojo and train. The class has a suggested donation of $15. “Any amount really does help,” Suzuki said. FYI: Aikido Kenkyukai Santa Barbara is located at 121A East Mason Street. To sign up for either of the sessions or to find out more go online to aksb.org or call 870-5437.

Cottage Health System’s Ron Werft has been named the 2011 chair of the California Hospital Association. The CHA is one of the largest health care trade associations in the country and represents more than 400 hospitals and health systems in California. “It’s truly an honor to lead an association as respected as CHA,” Werft said in a prepared statement. “CHA has a wellearned reputation for effectively advocating on behalf of hospitals and the patients and communities we serve. This is especially important for California’s community hospitals in these very challenging times.” Werft led Cottage during a major growth expansion for the nonprofit organization. Cottage Health System purchased St. Francis Medical Center, Santa Ynez Valley Community Hospital and Goleta Valley Hospital, and now owns all

the hospitals in southern half of the county. A recent effort to purchase Sansum Clinic, however, was unsuccessful. Werft said that the state’s budget crisis and the uncertainties surrounding the implementation of national health care reform make 2011 an critical year for hospitals and other health care providers in the state. “It’s important to acknowledge that the governor and the Legislature face a monumental challenge in getting the state’s fiscal house in order,” Werft said. “And, although reasonable people can disagree on the details of national health care reform, nearly everyone agrees with the goal of improving coverage and care in our communities. We must be vigilant in our advocacy efforts to ensure that hospitals are able to meet the growing expectations of our patients while making health

care more affordable and accessible to all.” Werft joined Cottage Health System in 1987 and became president/CEO in 2000. The hospital sees more than 20,000 inpatients and 64,000 emergency department visitors each year. Cottage is the largest private employer in Santa Barbara County. CHA President and CEO C. Duane Dauner called Werft “an exceptional choice” to serve as CHA’s Board Chair during such challenging times. “California’s community hospitals will be well-served by having Ron Werft guide our association this coming year,” Dauner said. “Ron’s in-depth knowledge of health care and his inspiring leadership style will make him an effective advocate with state and federal policymakers on behalf of hospitals and the patients who receive care.”

Crews rescue Montecito hiker

Crews on Monday rescued a hiker who slipped off a rock on the Cold Springs West Fork Trail. The woman, who authorities said was in her 50s, was unable to walk. Her hiking companions called 911 for help. Crews from the Montecito Fire Department hiked more than a mile up the trail, where they found the hiker, about 2 p.m. They used a stretcher to carry her out She was carried to an ambulance and then taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. The crews were who made the rescue were all volunteers.

Wisc. Dems down but not out

Scott Walker, Wisconsin's newly elected Republican governor, won his battle last week to get the curbs he backed on public-sector unions approved by the state legislature and signed into law. But the Democratic Party and organized labor, which opposed the bill, show signs of being energized by the setback, which up-ends more than 50 years of collective bargaining by nurses, highway workers, nurses and other Wisconsin public employees. Mark Pocan, a Democratic member of the Assembly who opposed the Walker bill, told protesters this week: "They may have won the battle, but I guarantee you they've lost the war." With Republican majorities in both the state Assembly and the Senate making a legislative counter-attack impossible, Democrats and their allies are focusing their hopes on a number of fronts, including eventually a recall campaign for Walker.

Quake would devistate CA

California will experience unthinkable damage when the next powerful quake strikes, probably within 30 years, even though the state prides itself on being on the leading edge of earthquake science. Modern skyscrapers built to the state's now-rigorous building codes might ride out the big jolt that experts say is all but inevitable, but the surviving buildings will tower over a carpet of rubble from older structures that have collapsed. Hot desert winds could fan fires that quakes inevitably cause, overwhelming fire departments, even as ancient water pipelines burst, engineers and architects say. Part of the lesson from the disaster that hit Japan on Friday is that no amount of preparation can fully protect a region such as California that sits on top of fault lines. Even so, critics fear the state may have long skimped on retrofitting older buildings. Yet the cost of cleaning up after a big quake is likely to be much higher than the cost of even the most expensive prevention, they warn.

Peebee & Jay’s opens in Carp A SantaBarbara.com NEW CAFE named Peebee & Jay’s opened last Wednesday at 1007 Casitas Pass Rd in Carpinteria, the former home of the Caje coffee shop. I first mentioned their pending arrival in my column on October 27th of last year. Peebee & Jay’s was founded by Jessica Pintard, owner of Corktree Cellars Wine Bar & Bistro on Linden Ave in Carpinteria. I asked Jessica why she started her new JOHN gourmet soup, salad DICKSON and sandwich shop and she tells me “I’m tired of going to Santa Barbara for a good sandwich!” Peebee & Jay’s offers 20 different sandwiches that come with soup from a recipe they make themselves. You can build your own sandwich as well. They offer 9 different salads, 2 soups every day (one is always vegetarian) and they get fresh bread daily from local bakeries. Everything on the menu is under $10. I asked Jessica if there is a particular sandwich she would recommend and she suggested the “Chicken Dressed Up Like A Salad.” It comes with spiced chicken, avocado, bacon, gorgonzola spread, sliced hard-boiled egg, french fried onion, ranch dressing, lettuce, tomato and balsamic rosemary bread. Peebee & Jay’s is open 7 days a week from 10am to 4pm. For more information call (805) 220-6912.

Book examins relationship between pet and owner NEWS

Your dog can’t talk. But you know exactly what he wants. One woof means “out.” A different grumble means he wants a treat. A certain look means “scratch my belly.” Sure, he may not carry on a conversation with you, but he communicates just the same and he gets you to do his bidding. One of you is very well-trained. Because of that, despite what scientists say, it’s hard not to attribute human qualities to animals that share your home. But you’ll never look at your dog again in the same way, once you’ve read “Emily and Einstein”, the new novel by Linda Francis Lee. Alexander “Sandy” Portman was going to ask his wife for a divorce. When he first laid eyes on Emily, he knew he had to have her – and since Sandy got everything he wanted, it was only a matter of time before he cajoled Emily into his arms, daring her to love him. She couldn’t resist. Alas, that was two years ago and now it just wasn’t working for Sandy. Divorce would break Emily’s heart. Oddly, he didn’t care. But that was all before he died. It was all before he begged the old man in

feathers for a second chance. Before the old man, cruel jokester that he was, gave Sandy a new body he wasn’t happy having… Saving the scruffy, wire-haired little mutt was all that was important to Emily in the days after Sandy’s accident. Not her shaky job at Caldecote Press, not her wild younger sister, not the fact that Sandy’s mother was being a harridan, nothing else distracted her like taking care of the dog she named Einstein. She had spent money she didn’t have on sav-

ing the pooch and though she initially had no intention of adopting him, she was ultimately glad she did. He was a curmudgeonly little guy, kind of stand-offish, but he surely lived up to his name! Einstein was so smart. He seemed to know everything about Emily and he acted as if he’d lived in her Dakota apartment all his life. Strangest of all, he reminded her so much of Sandy… Who really resides within the fur of the four-legged one at your feet? You’ll think of plenty of possibilities to ponder when you’re finished reading this adorably smart book. “Emily and Einstein” is one of those novels that captures your imagination and takes it for a ride. I really enjoyed the way author Linda Francis Lee leads her readers with observations through the eyes of a small, fuzzy, accidentally-quadrupedal man, and the way she envisions his spiritual life is just perfect. Lee was so good at creating Einstein, in fact, that you shouldn’t be surprised if your mind is drawn to your own pet and his humanlike characteristics: what, exactly, is going on behind those liquid “Pet Me” eyes? More fun than a squeaky ball, tastier than a bacon-flavored bone, “Emily and Einstein” will charm you quick. If you’re looking for something cute to read, this is the book you want.

The Radcliffe Choral Society will perform a free concert at 8 p.m. tonight at First United Methodist Church. The performance will be conducted by Harvard’s Director of Choral Activities, Andrew Clark. The Radcliffe Choral Society is made up of more than 50 women. The group

performs both sacred and secular music, ranging from medieval chant to renaissance polyphony, romantic masterworks, and contemporary arrangements of both American and international folksongs. The society will also perform March 17 in Pasadena and March 18 in Los Angeles. The concert is free, but dona-

OFF TOPIC: Yesterday Microsoft discontinued development of their portable iPod-like music player named "Zune." Word circulating in the tech media is that Microsoft will replace it with a new online music service named "Ventura" that will compete with the popular music streaming service Pandora. The only problem is that Microsoft doesn't own Ventura.com - The Restaurant Guy does and has since 1998. In my opinion it is unlikely Microsoft will name the new service Ventura. At this point I think it is just a codename and that the real name is being kept secret.

As concern about the crippling economic impact of the double disaster mounted, Japanese stocks plunged 7.0 percent to their lowest level in nearly two years, compounding a drop of 7.6 percent the day before. The two-day fall has wiped around $500 billion off the market. There have been a total of four explosions at the plant since it was damaged in last Friday's massive earthquake and tsunami. Authorities had previously been trying to prevent meltdowns in three of the Fukishima Daiichi complex's nuclear reactors by flooding the chambers with sea water to cool them down. The full extent of the destruction wreaked by last Friday's massive quake

Foley also said that with the detox center moved, Casa would be able to designate an entrance and an exit, which would make it easier to keep track of residents and also reduce disturbances in the neighborhood—a growing complaint from the nearby Milpas community since the shelter opened. Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider said relocating the center has been part of the city’s updated 12 point plan to end chronic homelessness. The 12-bed recovery program is currently the only one on the South Coast. Complicating the issue is the requirement that men and women not share the same room. The Casa location—which

"It's a scene from hell, absolutely nightmarish," said Patrick Fuller of the International Red Cross Federation from the northeastern coastal town of Otsuchi. Kan has said Japan is facing its worst crisis since World War Two and, with the financial costs estimated at up to $180 billion, analysts said it could tip the world's third-biggest economy back into recession. The U.S. Geological Survey upgraded the quake to magnitude 9.0, from 8.9, making it the world's fourth most powerful since 1900.

Restricting participants to six, particularly when there may be half or less as many women, can be serious “They finally say, ‘Ok, I’m ready,’ and then get told, ‘Well there’s a waiting period for two-weeks can you hold on?’” Schneider said. “By the time two weeks go by, they may not last,” Women end up being sent to facilities in Lompoc or Santa Maria. The new center would give greater flexibility on that score. With a larger number of bedrooms, gender assignments could be made more readily available. Given neighborhood responses to other homeless housing projects, larger public outreach measures have been taken to assuage the worries of Placido Street neighbors. Penny Jenkins, President of CADA, said there are a lot of misconceptions about detox facilities.

"This is a knee-jerk reaction, but it could put a lid on building new nuclear plants," said James Dunigan, chief investment officer at PNC Wealth Management in Philadelphia, which oversees $105 billion. Japanese ports handling about 7 percent of the country's industrial output sustained major damage, disrupting the flow of goods globally. in Japan and disrupted the global manufacturing chain.

BLAST DAMAGES ROOF, WORKERS TOLD TO LEAVE The fear at the Fukushima plant is of a major radiation leak after the quake and tsunami knocked out cooling systems. Jiji news agency said the first explosion on Tuesday damaged the roof and steam was rising from the complex. It also reported some workers had been told to leave the plant, a development one expert had warned beforehand could signal a worsening stage for the crisis. The worst nuclear accident since the Chernobyl disaster in Ukraine in 1986 has drawn criticism that authorities were ill-prepared and revived debate in many countries about the safety of atomic power.

Jenkins said too many people hear “detox” and think screaming patients breaking out in the middle of the night and wandering the streets. “It’s not like that,” Jenkins said. “It’s very much a treatment; it’s like going to a hospital room so you can get healthy and go on to the next step.” Jenkins said residents are not allowed to wander outside on their own. Staffers are on hand 24-hours a day. There are no unsupervised visits from guests. The center makes discharge plans with each patient so that when the program ends they’re not right back out on the streets. If the council approves the grant, the property will go into escrow the next day. Jenkins said some modifications will have to be made to the property to ensure handicapped access, enlarging the kitchen, and acquiring furniture. Jenkins estimated the center could be up by May but cautioned that much of it depended on construction time.
