Apocalypse now? Some await rapture DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli

Students leave class at Santa Barbara Junior High Friday, which is now part of a unified Santa Barbara School District, which officials hope will save money next fiscal year.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – The U.S. evangelical Christian broadcaster predicting that Judgment Day will come today says he expects to stay close to a TV or radio to monitor the unfolding apocalypse. Harold Camping, 89, previously made a failed prediction that Jesus Christ would return to Earth in 1994. The head of the Christian radio network Family Stations Inc says that he

is sure an earthquake will shake the Earth on May 21, sweeping true believers to heaven and leaving others behind to be engulfed in the world’s destruction over a few months. “We know without any shadow of a doubt it is going to happen,” Camping told Reuters. His Family Radio has 66 U.S. stations and broadcasts in more than 30 languages through international affili-

ates. His supporters have posted about 2,200 billboards around the United States about the coming apocalypse, and dozens of followers have driven across the country to spread the news. Camping, a civil engineer who once ran his own construction business, plans to spend today with his wife in Alameda, Calif., and watch the doomsday unfold.

“I’ll probably try to be very near a TV or a radio or something,” he said. “I’ll be interested in what’s happening on the other side of the world as this begins.” Like his last prediction, Camping’s doomsday date is based on his reading of the Bible and a timeline dating back to ancient events including the Biblical flood survived by Noah.

Leaders brace for heated November election BY LYZ HOFFMAN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

Tonight, politicians and Santa Barbara County Democratic Party activists will come together for their 3rd Annual Franklin Roosevelt-Fannie Lou Hamer Dinner. Tomorrow, the hard work begins. Having lost their Democratic majority of the Santa Barbara City Council, the local Democrats are rallying to regain control, looking to oust incumbent council members Dale Francisco, Michael Self and Randy Rowse, who replaced the liberal Das Williams at the end of last year, in this year’s upcoming election. And their annual dinner may be poised to be the perfect jumping-off point. “We’re harkening back to an old tradition when there was a conservative majority,” said Daraka Larimore-Hall, the chairman of the Santa Barbara County Democratic Party, “when activists got together to come up with a slate of candidates very early to build the momentum necessary to win against incumbents.”

‘It’s important to understand we want to elect three Democrats who share our general values and priorities for the city.’

– DARAKA LARIMORE-HALL, SANTA BARBARA COUNTY DEMOCRATIC PARTY CHAIR

Although he maintained that the dinner is to be “mainly a time of celebration,” Larimore-Hall also hinted at the dinner’s importance in terms of the future. “It’s one of our most important fundraising opportunities that we have in the year,” he said. The Democrats have got a running start in the November election, having already endorsed three candidates to fill the three Council seats up for grabs. Iya Falcone, a former council member, Cathy Murillo, a journalist and Deborah Schwartz, a city planning commissioner, were all officially backed by the Party earlier this month.

“We’ve done the same thing that’s been done in the past – put out a wide net, have open and broad discussions in the community and try to build a consensus around a team of candidates that have the skills and the drive to take on three incumbents,” Larimore-Hall said. Larimore-Hall, who grew up in Santa Barbara, will be receiving the Democratic Future Award at the dinner, an award bestowed upon ‘young democrats’ by ‘young democrats.’ “It’s very flattering,” said the 34-yearold. “[I will be] continuing to work as hard as I can. We’ve made a lot of strides See AWARDS, page 12

Gifting techniques made simple ASK SETH & BRAD

The Tri-county area has wonderful charities that do fantastic work supporting education, arts, culture, families, children and the list goes on. Work that enhances the community at large. When making a gift to a charity, here are some emotional considerations and planning tips to factor. Whenever a substantial gift is mulled over, donors often time wrestle with “Self, Family and Community” conflicts. The “self” being, “do I have enough for my future if I make this gift?” The “family” being, “how will my children feel about giving away part of their inheritance and will they have enough?” The “community” being, “I really like this organization and what they do, they could always use more money for their work.” Once a person satisfies the above questions and they are comfortable making a gift, the next question generally becomes, “what is the best, most tax effective way to maximize results?” Beyond making a cash gift, here are gifting techniques that are commonly used for the situation at hand (before engaging in any of these activities, please consult your tax advisor first as every situation is different). Appreciated stock: Yes, it is true; there are still people out there with appreciated securities. These are usually long term assets with large capital gains and often times represented by a single holding. The donor can gift shares, claim a tax deduction and the charity can sell the stock without anyone paying taxes. IRA Assets During Life: Retirement accounts are funded with pre-tax dollars and they grow tax deferred, so when money comes out, taxes are due. This is

generally the most “tax toxic” asset a person owns. There is a special provision in the tax code that expires this year allowing up to $100,000 to be gifted from your IRA to a charity with no taxes due by anyone. This is especially appealing to those over 70 ½ that have to take required minimum distributions and they would rather send those to a charity instead. IRA Assets At Death: If you have a large estate today or even a “small” one in 2013 when the laws are set to change again, your IRA can be subject to taxation as high as 70 percent on the balance at death (when figuring estate and income taxes). If you are going to leave money to charity at your death and you have a retirement account, naming them as a beneficiary on that account can be one of the most tax efficient ways to pass on that wealth. Your estate won’t pay any taxes on the distribution and the charity will not either. Annuities: These contracts grow tax deferred and when they are paid out, income taxes are due at that time (similar to IRA accounts). Adding a charity as a beneficiary will allow them to

receive the funds without taxation. Life Insurance: These contracts pay an income tax free benefit when the claim is paid. Normally, this is one of the best assets for a child to inherit or use to replace assets given to a charity. But sometimes people want a specific dollar amount guaranteed to a charity or they have an old contract they just want to gift to them now. Donor Advised Fund: These vehicles are used for people that want to make a current tax-deductible donation but don’t want to doll out all the funds today. This is most typical for last minute year-end charitable contributions or when a person wants to spread the money across many different charities (it’s an administration thing). Charitable Trust: This structure is most commonly used when a donor wants to convert a low yielding asset into a lifetime income stream and they don’t want to pay the taxes associated with selling the asset. The charity will end up with whatever is left in the trust upon the passing of the last income beneficiary. The hardest part in giving money is coming to a figure you are comfortable with. Once you are set to give … then the next part is relatively easy, find the assets that provide the best benefit for all involved. It usually falls into one or more of the categories above. If you are having difficulty finding the “right” charity, we encourage you to talk to the people at the Santa Barbara Foundation as they can help guide you to the charities, which best support your objectives.

Officials to review plans for road race

The final route through Santa Barbara for this year’s Mille Miglia classic car race may be decided at a Monday meeting with city officials and South Coastbased Stratus Media Group, which is organizing the event. Participants in the meeting include: Peter Doctors, Transportation Operations Public Works Department; Diana Palmer, city Waterfront Department, Susan Jang-Bardick, city Parks and Recreation Department, and Santa Barbara police Sgt. Marylinda Arroyo, special events supervisor. A Salute to the Mille Miglia, a more than 100-mile tour, will begin the morning of Oct. 28. It is the official start of the 25th Santa Barbara Concours d’Elegance, which again will be at the Santa Barbara Polo Grounds, 375

SOUTH COAST BIZ

Foothill Road. The tour is open to all cars participating in the Concours d’Elegance event. It will not be a timed event. Tour participants will enjoy VIP Hospitality along the way and at the finish. RAY “Mr. Indy 500” ESTRADA Andy Granatelli agin will serve as grand marshal at the Concours d’Elegance on Oct. 29 and 30. Last year’s attendance was hurt by a Friday night rainstorm, which kept many exhibitors away, even though the weath-

er was sunny and bright the first day the event. More than 350 cars are expected to be displayed. Saturday’s program will feature the Worldwide Classic Car Show. Sunday’s program will present the more than 20 classes of cars judged to be the best on the polo grounds. Festivities include the second Vino d’Elegance festival, with artisan cuisine, luxury and local brands and merchandise. Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the United Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara.

NEWS IN BRIEF

Apple near cloud music deal

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Apple Inc is close to launching an online music storage and streaming service after reaching deals with three of the four major labels and is expected to wrap up the fourth in a few days, according to people familiar with the plans. The iPhone and iPad maker completed work on the new service a while back, according to two people, and will beat Google Inc and Amazon.com Inc in the bid to launch a comprehensive ‘cloud’ music service. The iTunes cloud-based service will offer users the ability to buy, store and stream favorite songs and albums wherever they have an Internet connection on any device. Warner Music Group Corp was the first to reach a cloud deal with Apple more than two weeks ago and was followed by EMI Group and Sony Corp’s Sony Music Entertainment more recently, according to three people with knowledge of the talks. Vivendi SA’s Universal Music Group is “within days of putting pen to paper on the new cloud service,� said a fourth person. Spokespeople for Apple and the labels declined to comment. Apple has discussed plans for a cloud-based iTunes service on and off over the last year with the labels. It stepped up negotiations recently, according to these people. It is now expected that Apple will likely be in a position to announce its cloud music plans in time for the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference on June 6. There is a chance the new music service could be ready to launch by June 6, but it would also need deals with song publishers. Apple has opened talks with some publishers, according to two people.

Pawlenty to launch campaign

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican Tim Pawlenty, a conservative former governor of Minnesota, will formally announce his 2012 presidential bid on Monday at a campaign event in Iowa, a Pawlenty aide said. Pawlenty had formed a committee in March to explore a White House run, as Republicans begin to line up for the right to challenge President Barack Obama’s re-election. Pawlenty was the sole top-tier contender to participate in the first Republican presidential debate in South Carolina earlier this month, and he has been traveling for months to try to woo supporters in states with crucial early nominating contests like Iowa. The Iowa stop on Monday will be a town hall meeting where he will be introduced by his wife Mary. Pawlenty also will visit Florida, New Hampshire, New York and Washington D.C. later in the week. Pawlenty has highlighted his work balancing the budget as governor of Minnesota and his support for spending cuts and reduced government as he courts conservatives who often dominate the Republican nominating process.

Unified district could save $6M

Brian Sarvis, Santa Barbara School District Superintendent, looks over school documents Friday after the press conference announcing the unification of the elementary and secondary school districts. Officials hope the change will plug part of a projected $10 million budget shortfall.

BY NICK C. TONKIN

DAILY SOUND CORRESPONDENT

Santa Barbara will merge its two school districts to generate $6 million, and possibly avoid major layoffs. The Santa Barbara School Districts announced the unification of its elementary and secondary districts at a press conference Friday morning. The change will give the district a huge financial boost. It is facing a potential $10 million shortfall next year. “This is a tremendous advantage to our school district,” Superintendent Brian Sarvis said. The two districts have been operating on a local level as one for the last five years. The districts have the same superintendent, the same board of education, and the same administration. Sarvis said on an operational level, very little would change. The more major administrative changes involve more cursory things like changing the name on district letterhead. Finances are a much different story. Sarvis said every report to the state has to be done twice, once as the elementary district, and once as the secondary district.

‘This unification means a lot as far as the resources that are coming into the district. But we’re still left with some tough decisions.’

– SANTA BARBARA SCHOOL BOARD MEMBER MONIQUE LIMON ON MERGING THE ELEMENTARY AND SECONDARY DISTRICTS

That adds up to a lot of paperwork. “We spend a lot of time on being two separate districts even though we’re a single resolution district,” Sarvis said. Though there are savings on the bureaucratic front, the main revenue comes from the increased district size. The district also qualifies for state funding as two different entities with lower limits on the funding allowed per student from the state. Merging into a single district raises the funding limit on students. Assistant Superintendent Eric Smith, is credited as the architect of the unification move. “Fiscally, it made a lot of sense,” Smith said. The school board has yet to meet to talk about the effects of unification on

the budget. But after having to major cuts, the board members are more than willing to praise the move. Board Kate Parker called the unification “historic” and said the revenue could potentially save jobs and scale back some of the largest cuts, such as the shortened school year. “It’s a huge change for the district and I think a really positive one,” Kate Parker said. Monique Limón echoed Parker’s views. But both she and Parker noted that $6 million still leaves another $4 million for the board to ax. “This unification means a lot as far as the resources that are coming into the district,” Limón said. “But we’re still left with some tough decisions.”

Savage dies near home NEWS

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla (Reuters) – Professional wrestling great “Macho Man” Randy Savage died after a car crash on Friday near his home in Seminole, Florida, the Florida Highway Patrol said. The colorful champion -- known for his husky voice, gaudy costumes and “oooh, yeah!” catch phrase -- appeared to have lost control of his 2009 Jeep Wrangler on Friday morning, crash investigators said. Savage, 58, drove over a concrete barrier into oncoming traffic lanes before crashing head-on into a tree. He died of his injuries at a nearby hospital, a crash report said. Though some media outlets quoted his brother as saying the former wrestler suffered a heart attack while driving, the Florida Highway Patrol said that could not be confirmed until an autopsy is performed. The crash was not alcohol-related, authorities said. The wrestler, whose legal name was Randy Mario Poffo, and his wife Barbara, who was a

passenger in the car, were both wearing seat belts. His wife suffered minor injuries. Once a minor league baseball player, the wrestler rose to fame as “Macho Man” in the 1980s. He was “an iconic figure,” said hall of fame professional wrestler Dusty “The American Dream” Rhodes on Friday. Under contract with the WWE from 1985 to 1993, he sparred against Hulk Hogan and Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat. He clinched two WWE Championships, two World Heavyweight Championships and held a 14month reign as Intercontinental Champion. His entrance music was “Pomp and Circumstance” and his signature accessories were sunglasses, bandannas and cowboy hats. “WWE is saddened to learn of the passing of one of the greatest Superstars of his time,” read a statement posted on the WWE site on Friday. “Our sincerest condolences go out to his family and friends.”

Garden Court was given a $3,600 grant to improve programs for its elderly residents.

Stephen O’Leary, an expert in religious communication at the University of Southern California, said the idea of rapture espoused by Camping and some more mainstream Christians first appeared in Christian teaching in the 19th century. “It is very appealing to people,” said Barbara Rossing, professor of the New Testament at the Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago who describes a huge apocalyptic “prophecy industry” including video games, board games and books. Atheists are reacting to Camping’s pronouncement in their own way.

Barnes & Noble reinvent itself now that electronic books are all the rage. The smaller Borders Group, the nation’s second-largest bookstore chain, filed for bankruptcy protection in February. It is closing about 225 more of its 642 stores and may sell half of its remaining stores. Guess who wants to buy some?

In Tacoma, Washington, atheists have organized a party for Saturday night at an arcade, under the banner “countdown to backpedaling,” on the assumption that Camping and Family Radio will change their story if Judgment Day does not come. At least 100 people are expected at the party, said Sam Mulvey, 33, an organizer of the event and the producer of a weekly atheist radio show in Tacoma. “If the world still exists the next day, Family Radio is going to have to say something and most of the time they backpedal, and that’s what we’re counting down to,” he said.

The company put itself up for sale in August because of pressure from billionaire shareholder Ron Burkle during a proxy battle he started against the company to fight a “poison-pill” plan that limited any single investor to a 20 percent stake. Shareholders ratified the plan late last year.

HOROSCOPES by Eugenia Last

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): It’s up to you to make things happen instead of waiting around for someone else to do the work. Get together with someone from your past and rework an old idea to fit the current economic climate. You can bring in extra cash with a couple of minor adjustments. 3 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Your patience and understanding will be rewarded. Enjoy interaction with people with similar interests. Love is highlighted, so plan to enjoy the company of someone special this evening. 5 stars

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Express your feelings sincerely and you will get the response you are looking for. Knowing where you stand will make it easier to make personal decisions that will alter your life, home and family. Don’t limit what you can do. 3 stars

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Change may be something you want but picking the right time to make a move is crucial, if you want to get good results. Not everyone is on the same page as you. Work quietly getting your finances and legal paperwork together. 3 stars

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): You’ll have to juggle in order to get everything done. Don’t let someone’s lastminute change of plans cause you to make a mistake. Think matters through. Don’t let your pride stand in the way. 3 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Get involved in something that you truly believe in and you will satisfy your needs to nurture and help others. The people you meet while volunteering or lending a hand will touch your heart and form friendships with you that will mold your future. 3 stars

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): Put everything you’ve got into your career. Express your feelings for someone you have wanted to befriend or get into a business or personal relationship with. You will get a favorable response. 4 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Your best effort should be going into your work and professional reputation. Not everyone will be on your team and it will take plenty of hard work to win some of your critics’ approval. Don’t leave anything to chance. 3 stars

Birthday Baby: You are steadfast and a little bit stubborn. You deal with whatever comes your way responsibly and efficiently. You are patient but persistent.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Be where the action is and you’ll fit in nicely. All sorts of opportunities are available. You shouldn’t have to spend money in order to get ahead. Use your charm, experience and skills. Love is apparent. 5 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): A short trip that will help you out with regard to business or an important partnership must be taken. The ground you will gain and the deal you can strike will help you get something off the ground that you’ve wanted for some time. Mix love and romance into your plans. 4 stars

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Telling someone else what to do will result in discord and a lack of productivity. Personal change and improvement will get you much further than trying to change someone else. A problem with a partnership is likely. 2 stars

Iya Falcone – pictured with county supervisors Salud Carbajal (left), Janet Wolf, late Mayor Harriet Miller, District Attorney Joyce Dudley and former supervisor Susan Rose – announcing her aborted 2009 mayoral campaign. Falcone, already a two-term council member, was endorsed by the countyʼs Democratic Party this month for Novemberʼs Santa Barbara City Council election. Party leaders hope she and two other candidates will take down the conservative majority, which is up for re-election.

in building this party in the last six or seven years.” Other award recipients include Jim and Charlotte MacMillan, the Democratic Leadership Award; the California Labor Federation, the Solidarity Award; and Salud Carbajal, the Democratic Values Award. Carbajal, who’s on the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors, said he felt “honored and humbled” at being awarded, his commitment to the title of his award very important to him. “Democratic values are inclusiveness to make sure that we consider all interests, we consider all people, that we look at those that are the most vulnerable in our community,” Carbajal said. “[It is] making sure that opportunity is vast and broad for as many people as possible.” Named after President Franklin D. Roosevelt and Fannie Lou Hamer, a voting rights advocate, the dinner will offer a sense of unity and serve as impetus going into election season. “The dinner’s always a chance to honor the hard work and the organizations that share our values,” Larimore-Hall said. “I hope that the future will hold more organizing.” Looking to the future, Larimore-Hall believes “you can tell the differences” between

the two parties, and the two sets of groups representing the Council. “The differences play out in everything from decisions on city contracts to bike paths,” he said. “Despite the notion that city councils are normally nonpartisan, people’s values and general political outlook very much influence how they make decisions.” And those decisions, he said, should reflect the good of the Santa Barbara population, decisions that he believes the Democrat’s candidates can do a better job of making. “It’s important to understand we want to elect three Democrats who share our general values and priorities for the city,” LarimoreHall said.
