Sunrise: 6:27 a.m. Sunset: 7:30 p.m.

For those celebrating the 41st annual Earth Day in Santa Barbara the action is at Alameda Park. From 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday, participants may check out over 250 exhibits. Organized by the Community Environmental Council, the festival will have entertainment, eats, and environmental awareness for all ages. “It’s great to have a day when you focus in on the needs of a planet but we want to have an influence on people’s lives for the rest of the year,” the Council’s Donor Relations Manager

Kathi King. “Earth Day every day.” Earth Day had its genesis in Santa Barbara. After seeing the devastation from the 1969 Platform A oil spill, then-Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson proposed a national teach-in day at universities all over the country to educate people on the environment. On April 22, 1970, his vision became a reality with over 20 million people participating. In 1990, organizers took it international with over 200 million participants in 141 countries, growing it to over 175 countries today. Since 1990 the Council has put on a special festival to celebrate Earth Day. For the 40th anniversary last

Energy efficiency is going to be on the highlights this year. It’s going to include a life-sized, “Power House,” where people can look at the ways to make a home produce as much energy as it uses. Look at solar panels, See EARTH, page 2

DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT The Santa Barbara Symphony will present one of the greatest harpists of this generation, prize-winning Italian virtuoso Letizia Belmondo, performing Henriette Renié’s Concerto for Harp and Orchestra, at 8 p.m., Saturday, April 16 and at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 17. The program will open with Wagner’s Siegfried Idyl and close with Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 “Jupiter,” his final work, considered the pinnacle of his musical genius. “We are very happy to welcome the fantastic Italian harpist, Letizia Belmondo, to perform in our April concert,” said Nir Kabaretti, Music and Artistic Director for the Santa Barbara Symphony. “We don’t often get the pleasure of hearing a harpist of her caliber because there is very little music written for orchestras with harp solos and Letizia herself rarely tours the United States. Thus, our April concert stands out as a unique gem of the fantastic collection of music we are so pleased to present this season!” Belmondo won the First Prize and the “Esther Herlitz” Special Prize for the best performance of a contemporary piece in the 14th International Harp Contest in Israel.

Find the O Street truck day or night





Part of an ongoing series

It’s been a mere two-and-a-half weeks into the O Street Truck’s operation and the team has already proved that it isn’t afraid to change the game plan. The food truck came charging out of the gate in late March, serving breakfast and lunch at various locations, primarily corporate business parks, throughout the Santa Barbara/Goleta area. “ It’s a little bit of a shotgun approach, we’re trying everything,” said proprietor Liz Bradley. “ We eighty-sixed breakfast. We found that ... breakfast just isn’t the kind of thing people do at corporate places.” However, she says, lunchtime and late-night are “working really well.” Stationing a gourmet food truck with eminently affordable menu items outside of the likes of Wildcat, for instance, has inherently obvious potential rewards— and challenges. But O Street Truck isn’t afraid to capitalize. “It’s an ‘adapt and survive’ attitude, which we can easily do in this mobile scenario,” Bradley shared. That willingness to try anything and take a flexible approach may embody the optimism and hustle of a young, firsttime entrepreneur, charging from the gate—but Bradley, 53, and her tight-knit team are hardly newcomers. To the burgeoning Santa Barbara food truck scene, sure. But O Street Truck is an outcropping of long-time Santa Barbara-based business Olive Street Table, a manufacturer of French pastry-based products— predominately pizzas and tarts— that can be found in many retailers’ freezers (such as Lazy Acres and Costco). Bradley, who founded Olive Street

Table in 2003, readily shares the realities of doing business in the current economy. “We had a couple of bad years,” she admitted. “So it’s become ‘how do we recreate ourselves?’ I don’t mean completely, we’re not losing our other channels of trade. But how do we find a new channel to help support this ship?” Collectively, the Olive Street Table team—Bradley, along with Molly Mull and David Ross—decided a food truck would be that new channel. The truck, a 1993 GMC, was built for them in Los Angeles, a city seen by many as the progenitor of the food truck trend. The O Street Truck’s kitchen, says Bradley, “is nicer than any kitchen I’ve ever been in my life.” “Seriously,” she emphasized. “And I’ve got a commercial kitchen.” Taking it to the Streets For a company that’s never had direct

The O Street Truck carries some products similar to what Olive Street Table has available for purchase in stores: a couple of pastry-crust pizzas, for instance, that the truck can sell for $4, since they’ve cut out all the middle men and are selling direct to the consumer. Among other menu items, O Street Truck also currently has a tomato-basil soup available. But the stars of the menu all contain the words “banh mi.” The French Vietnamese-style banh mi sandwiches ($5) contain either marinated chicken or beef on a fresh baguette with cilantro, carrots, and cucumber, as well as a sauce with just about the perfect amount of kick. The truck also serves banh mi-style tacos, just $2, which Bradley says are a hit with the late-night crowds. While sampling several of the truck’s offerings could result in a typical Santa

contact with the end consumer until a few weeks ago, Bradley, Mull, and Ross have seem to hit a few things out of the park right off the bat. They’re appealing to the eyes, the stomach, and, importantly, the pocketbook, as they strive to put the truck in front of as many customers as possible. The truck’s graphic design, created by local artist Maria Rendón, is snazzy and distinctive with its text-heavy plastering of yellow and white on a red background. Ross, who manages the truck’s day-today operations, says that he takes advantage of the truck’s visibility, driving it through commercial corridors at times just to be seen.

Barbara lunchtime bill, it’s also very possible to spend $5 at O Street Truck and walk away satisfied—something that is rare amongst restaurants both mobile and stationary in this area. Mull has taken lead on making sure the truck has places to operate. The truck’s lunch service, which rotates through business sites such as Mentor Corp., Allergan, and Commission Junction, is catching on. Bradley shared the results from a recent day at Mentor, with approximately 150 transactions in a two-hour period. (O Street Truck’s schedule can be found on its Web site, See TRUCK, page 6

Time to make a spring for yourself KITTY IN THE CITY

Daily Sound

I have been in a relationship for the past three years. My other half is a widow and we met right after he lost his wife. He is a lovely man in all ways except there isn’t that sparkly thing and never has been. For once in my life I would really like to have my heart beat a little faster, but I don’t want to hurt him. Suggestions are more than welcome. DEAR MISS KITTY,


Sunny & Warmer 78°


Sunshine and warm temperatures will make for a gorgeous end to the work week as highs climb into the 70s today. Another degree or two of warming will take place tomorrow before a significant cooling trend develops, with Sunday’s highs down nearly 10 degrees from what we’ll see on Saturday.

Parents of tipsy toddler sue

The parents of the Michigan toddler accidentally served alcohol at an Applebee’s restaurant last week have filed suit against the chain’s parent company, saying its employees have made similar mistakes with other children. The suit claims the two suffered emotional distress as a result of the incident and seeks unspecified monetary damages from the company for medical bills and non-economic losses. Last Friday, the family visited an Applebee’s in Madison Heights, Michigan, where—among other things—they ordered a child’s meal for Dominic Jr. that was supposed to come with apple juice.What the little boy got instead was a margarita mix with alcohol in it. When the child was taken to a nearby hospital, he was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.10—above Michigan’s drunk-driving limit of 0.08. He also suffered “headaches, nausea” and other classic hangover symptoms “for a period of days after the incident,” according to the suit.

CA tosses solar plant lawsuit

California's supreme court refused to consider a lawsuit filed by an influential environmental group seeking to delay construction of a solar plant because it might harm rare plant and animal species. The state supreme court said it would not review the Sierra Club's complaint against the Calico Solar Project—one of a string of lawsuits accusing solar power plant projects across the largest U.S. state of harming the environment. The court offered no explanation. In its complaint, America's oldest environmental organization argued to the courts that the California Energy Commission had approved the Calico project improperly, failing to take into account potential harm to native flora and fauna. "We support well-planned projects. This was not one of them," Graham said.

And finally in another little known secret, Mother Theresa was given the entire Dior Spring collection every single year, but just didn’t think it would be right to wear couture in Calcutta.

now maybe since three years have gone by, he is ready for a little sparkle himself.

Dead or alive is something that goes hand in hand with a classic western wanted poster, not something that one lives on a daily basis. There is no guarantee that anyone will find heart pounding romance, but you get points for trying. Unfortunately romance isn’t in the same category as death and taxes, but everyone does have the opportunity to not only entertain the thought, but to go on the mission and to not even try is like coloring celery instead of eggs or floating a pork chop in matzo ball soup—disgusting and rather unforgiveable.

Darling L, Boys and Girls: Spring in all its forms and traditions heralds newness, growth and change. It isn’t that the harshness of what is part of our world suddenly doesn’t exist—but it does mean that this is a time and has been for all the ages to acknowledge what is miraculously new again. Are we so jaded or scared that we can’t reach out and make a Spring for ourselves? I don’t think so—sometimes we just need someone to tell us or give us a little push to know its O.K. That push, combined with the strong pull of focusing our own thoughts on the positive has the power to buff a rusty relationship into a permanent and harmonious sparkle, or propel us to find one that does. And that’s another secret I found in an old and dusty book, written in invisible ink.


You said that he is a lovely man in all ways, a regular Mr. Mensch, which means I would take a bet that he is eternally grateful for the rock you have been during the last three years. It is no small thing to lose a life partner and what you have done and been is commendable. He will understand that you deserve to have happiness in the form you want it to be. And here’s another secret, if you don’t have sparkle with him, he doesn’t have it from you and


It is a known (but secret) rule of the universe that whatever you choose to put out (sparkle or dull frustration) is what you get right back at you, every time.

Time to play ball!

With the infield dirt raked and the foul lines chalked, the umpire yells “Play ball!” The batter moves into the batter’s box, steps up to the plate, taps his bat once on home plate and sends a screamer down the line. It’s opening day at Dos Pueblos Little League.

The smell of freshly cut grass and the sound of the bat hitting the ball are two reasons why I love this time of year. Growing up as a little leaguer, I looked forward to getting my new hat, my uniform and meeting my new teammates. In my first season, I played for the Tigers.

I fondly recall my orange mesh hat with the Tiger’s patch that my mom sewed onto the front. I remember not wanting to ever take my hat off and even trying to convince my

that a baseball PEDIATRICS mom player was supposed to IN PARADISE go to sleep with his hat on.


This baseball season could not have come soon enough. Both older boys are now of age to play, Josh in the coachpitch division and Andy in Tee-ball. Having two of my best friends join me in the dugout as assistant coaches makes it a grand slam.

Baseball will always have a special place in my heart. Many of my fondest childhood memories are about playing ball with my dad.

I remember a special night each year when my dad would get out our gloves out and we would condition them with oil, place a ball in the leather and tie them up tight to form the perfect pocket. A couple days later, we’d take our gloves and a bucket of balls to the school yard and play for hours. Being able to coach my sons’ baseball teams is a special privilege. This season I am able to manage Josh’s team, the Mets, and help out with Andy’s team, the Lil’ Angels. This gives me invaluable protected time to spend with each of my older boys.

The truth was quite the opposite. “There’s been great enthusiasm from the private locations,” Mull said. “I was very surprised that all these people want us on their property.” She says that the people working in corporate business parks appreciate that when the O Street Truck is there, they don’t have “miles to go” to find a lunch spot.

Karma's a bitch, and I certainly had my moments. As a former teenage girl, I know just how mean they can be.

Plus the fact that my genetic eggs are in this one and only one precious basket makes me guard it all the more zealously.

But here's the rub. As a parent I've found that it's almost impossible to try to comfort someone and develop their character at the time. With girlfriends and husbands, your job is just to listen and be supportive and hate whomever they hate at that moment. In those cases it's easy to blame it on the other guy. But when you're comforting a child you sometimes have to fess up to the fact that it's not always the other guy's fault. Human relationships are complicated and they're only just beginning.

Kind of makes me wish for the good old days when I would dream up tactical scenarios of how I would jump into the lion's cage at the zoo to rescue my son.
