Despite recent layoff announcements by Raytheon, unemployment in Goleta remains at less than five percent and the city appears poised for growth in the summer and beyond. With a stable budget, expanding economy, and a recent courtroom victory, city manager Dan Singer said recently that the upcoming year held promise. Many Goleta’s companies such as FLIR, Deckers Outdoor and

Yardi, are planning expansions and adding jobs. Singer said at a recent state of the city event that in 2012 the city will receive an income boost when its revenue agreement with the county changes, allowing it to keep its hotel bed tax and a larger percent of its sales tax. That bump translates to a $17.7 million revenue projection for the 2012-13 fiscal year, well above the $14.3 projected for 2011-12 and going above the previous high of See FINANCES, page 4

Delphine Louie massages the face of the Virgin Mary, making sure her skin is the right tone and her hair is the correct color. Louie looks back and forth between her artwork the piece of art she is referencing, anxious to make it look just so. “It symbolizes the Madonna looking over her community,” Louie said of her Mission-sponsored, steps-adjacent painting, her chalk-stained hands gesturing to the bottom of her square, to the other artists in the distance, to the lawn and the rose garden. The images adorning the asphalt outside of the Mission are not mirages. They can actually be “chalked” up to this weekend’s 25th annual I Madonnari Festival, a chance for artists – “madonnaris” and their aficionados alike to share in the event’s colorful sidewalk creations. The festival runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday through Monday. Tens of thousands of people from all around the world are expected to attend the weekend festival.

‘It’s not often that you get to see a work of art being created. I’m excited about it. I love it. It’s home. It’s what I look forward to all year.’

– JAY SCHWARTZ, I MADONNARI ARTIST

Louie and her partner-in-painting, Jane Durand, are among the hundreds of artists expected to participate in this year’s festival, which happens to coincide with the 225th anniversary of the Mission. Some squares away from Louie and Durand, Tom Meaney, this year’s featured artist, is hard at work painting his own Madonna, but with a twist: Meaney is incorporating paintings of his own children into the image. A self-described “architect by day,” Meaney is a 25-year veteran of the festival. “The fun part for me is just doing it,” he said. “People get to share in the [artistic] process and [artists] get to share with other artists. It’s fun to be in this position.”

Joy Lynn, a professional painter in her fourth year at the festival, agreed. “It’s more about the experience and interacting with people,” she said. “There’s definitely an energy to this place.” Painting a Nepali mother and her child – based on a real photo she herself took and her interpretation of the Madonna concept – Lynn said that there is something distinctly unique about street art. “You can’t get too attached to it,” she said. Louie and Durand agreed. “That’s the charm of it,” Durand said. “It’s part of the performance.” The impermanence, Louie said, “is the whole reason we do it.” “In life,” she said, “this is how it is.

In comparison to stocks, the bond market is largely inefficient and there are tremendous opportunities for investors to be taken advantage of. While there is an electronic system to trade bonds, a lot of transactions are done over the phone via negotiations. Let’s investigate the recent trades that took place for one bond and see how 5 percent was made in 19 minutes (made by the broker that is). See the Exhibit: Bond Transaction Detail to review all the trades that took place on May 10 for this CA General Obligation bond – two sales to customers, five purchases from customers and three transactions between dealers. The two transactions that are most interesting are the ones that took place at 12:50 p.m. and 1:09 p.m., just 19 minutes apart. A broker purchased a bond from a customer and turned around and sold it to another customer ‌ with a total mark up of 5 percent. Undoubtedly, neither party knew the commissions being built into the transaction, a customer usually only sees the small “ticket chargeâ€? (probably thinking they got a good deal when in reality, not so much). This has been the reality of the retail bond market for years, endless stories about how people think they are only paying small transaction fees but to find out through a little research it was really hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of mark-ups they never saw. Understanding how the bond market works is the first step to getting yourself better deals on your transactions. In simple terms, bonds are bought and sold between dealers and investors. The price

Senators against mortgage law

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Close to 40 senators have signed a letter they plan to send to regulators on Friday in which they contend the rule will make it harder for credit-worthy borrowers to get homes. The Dodd-Frank law takes aim at widespread criticism that lending standards became too lax in the run up to the 2007-2009 financial crisis because loans were bundled together and sold as securities. Critics argue that the originator of the loan or the firm creating the security had little stake in whether the loan performed because it was being sold to investors. In response, the law requires the securitizer to hold onto 5 percent of the loans being securitized so they have a stake in the loan’s performance, or “skin in the game.” Mortgages that meet strict underwriting standards, however, are exempted from this risk retention requirement. These exempted loans are known as Qualified Residential Mortgages (QRM). In March, regulators released a proposed rule that would require these exempt home loans to have, among other standards, a 20 percent down payment. In their letter, the senators argue the underwriting standards regulators have developed go beyond what Congress intended and will make it harder for many borrowers to get a home loan. The lending industry and consumer advocates have also criticized the rule as being too strict in a rare moment of agreement over how the Dodd-Frank law should be implemented.

Joplin tornado toll rises to 132

Joplin, Mo. (Reuters) – The death toll from the tornado that tore through Joplin Sunday rose to 132 on Friday after six more victims were identified, Joplin City Manager Mark Rohr said. The tornado, the deadliest single twister in the U.S. since 1947, injured more than 900 people, though officials said that figure could be higher because some people did not got to hospitals. Some 156 people were still unaccounted for on Friday, as dozens were confirmed alive, six were determined to be dead and others were reported missing and added to the list of names authorities had released on Thursday, officials said.

Authorities are searching for man who allegedly robbed a branch of Santa Barbara Bank & Trust Friday morning. The suspect was described as a 20-40 year old man of average build. He is described as being between 5-foot-10 and 6-foot-2, and wearing a dark blue suit and a cap similar to a yarmulke. Around 10 a.m witnesses described seeing a man walk into the bank at the 5000 block of Hollister Avenue, in the Magnolia Shopping Center and threaten

The city also chalked up a win on the social front two weeks ago when the U.S. Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal of Daniel Guggenheim, owner of Rancho Mobile Home Estates, a rentcontrolled mobile home park. After incorporating in 2002, the city voted to keep the same rent control ordinance that the county had adopted.

Guggenheim, hoping to repeal the decades-old ordinance, sued the city and after an appeals court loss in December, took his case to the Supreme Court. The justices’ refusal to hear the case effectively upheld a city’s right to protect residents from uncontrolled rent increases. Goleta Mayor Margaret Connell See RDA FUNDS, page 12

Love Fox Vintage offers Foxy finds at Foxy prices Faith Mickler, a local Santa Barbara resident, teamed with Benicia Smith to create Love Fox Vintage. After a year of being located in Ventura, they have decided to bring the unique vintage store to Santa Barbara. When asked why they decided on this type of store, both Mickler and Smith stated that they “have had a passion for vintage for as long as they can remember. It has always been their dream to open a store.” Their friendship began two years ago while working for the Santa Barbara school district, specifically focusing on children with Autism. After a year they decided to become business partners. Says Mickler, “It has been a great adventure and we are excited for our new store front. After the success of the Ventura store we canʼt wait to see our future.” Love Fox is an Indie Boutique that specializes in fashion forward vintage and “pretty things” at reasonable prices. They also buy, sell, and trade on-trend clothing and accessories. Starting in early June, Love Fox will be found at 7 West Haley and State Street in downtown Santa Barbara.

Flea markets and the lure of stuff ANTIQUES

Some of us are “stuff” people. I see many of my “stuff” friends at the flea market, at Alpha’s, at the Assistance League Bargain Box and at the Goodwill. What kind of people are “stuff” people? Why do I buy other people’s used stuff? What exactly does a flea market mean, aside from the French origination in the 19th Century, the Marches Aux Puces? Check out the new book, “Stuff: Compulsive Hoarding and the Meaning of Things” by Psychiatrists Frost and Steletee, the first scientists to study the hold that stuff has on people, even to the point of pathology. Does my stuff own me, or do I own my stuff? Stuff can become a problem. I have been appraising stuff in peoples’ homes for 26 years and almost every year I encounter a real bona fide hoarder, which is one end of the disease. But what about us “stuff” people who are compelled to haunt the “thrifts” and the “fleas?” What exactly are we looking for? As quoted in May 15’s The New York Times, Dr. Michael Prokopow, who teaches a course called “Stuff” at the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto says, “for most people who go on these ritualized scavenger hunts, looking for something that they may not know exists, it is a kind of pilgrim’s progress through the detritus of the past.” He solemnly explains that those of us who search for stuff that “flea markets proliferate a volume of goods needing to be sold and people who are hungry – emotionally and aesthetically – to sort out the meaning of life.” Wow, that’s depressing. But maybe

Hayes brokers predict activity will continue to slowly improve into 2012. “Our current State Street listings are seeing activity and offers,” Martz said. “We expect that most of the vacancy on the 900 block will be absorbed by year’s end.” Martz said attendance at the conference has not have to the 50,000 range seen in 2006 and 2007. However, more than 30,000 attendees this year saw more than 1,000 exhibitors spread across 1.4 million square feet of convention space. “This year’s conference confirms

there’s another most delicate, nostalgic reason for loving the Fleas. The economy, for one. For another, “stuff” people don’t want to dress or decorate like other people, for example, those people who buy stuff from ELIZABETH the big box stores STEWART and the banal strip malls of life. That’s new junk, not real junk. Those places are too predictable, too boring. “Stuff” people like to scavenge; we like the unpredictability, we love the carnival atmosphere, and we love the competition of the hunt. I guess we are, in fact, looking for liveliness, if not exactly looking for the meaning of life. I hold that “stuff” people don’t really use, nor need, their stuff. They just like it around, maybe because it triggers a memory. One of my fellow hunters loves to collect old lunchboxes, bringing her back to childhood. Another collects silk scarves, her affordable luxury. Another collects old typewriters, his useless throwback sculpture. Another gent collects old vacuum tubes, those antique radio bulbs. Why? Because there’s meaning in these things. Stuff people can say to others – “I’m the type of guy who collects old electronics,” or, “I’m the type of gal who wears old cowboy boots.” Our stuff sends other people a message about us. We are unique. And finally, thrift and flea market

shopping is communal. It’s a ritual which can’t be done while ordering stuff online, or buying stuff in line in a Costco or at Wal-Mart. Finding something “almost thrown away” can also have an heroic feel – “stuff” people rescue things. We assert our personal taste in a very public setting, and we don’t need technology for a few hours. In fact, we openly pine for the simpler days as we buy those ancient 20-year-old outmoded, outdated and anachronistic things. I “saved” a pair of men’s size-12 white patent leather platform disco shoes at the Goodwill. I can’t wear them, but I saved their life. That’s nostalgia, not mental illness, don’t you think? It’s about respecting the life of “stuff.” Finally, I love the performance aspect of the flea market setting. I am performing a ritual hunt towards becoming unique. I am looking for something no one else has, I tell myself (not that no one else wants – that’s too realistic). I will be different after I buy this stuff; I will be wearing my uniqueness. Call me crazy, but did I tell you about the yellow vase? An older lady told me that the high point of her life was finding her mother’s yellow vase at a flea market, one that her mother had to abandon fleeing the Nazis. She knew it was her mom’s by the unique crack it bore. There’s a message about the meaning of stuff in that story.

The entertaining “Pirates of the Caribbean” series is strengthened by its interest in the spiritual world. From the curse of the Aztec gold, to the beating heart removed and locked away for safe keeping, to the journey into the afterlife, and scores of other spiritual and supernatural allusions to vessels and creatures in the first three films, this fourth film of the franchise continues the tradition. Weaving mythology with the occult and Christianity with politics, the adventure continues for the charming pirate, Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). Directing the fourth film in the series is Rob Marshall (“Nine,” “Chicago”). Though this is his first time directing a Pirates film, the writing of Ted Elliot and Terry Rosso continues to bring depth and insight to both characters and plots. Having written all the films in the series, the twists and turns of the tales are evolving into an art form. Touching the deeper longings of their viewers, the writing duo takes us into the world of myth and religion by focusing on the quest for the fountain of youth. This quest for unending life is central to human desire but it also has political implications and individual motivations. These are seen clearly in the various characters of the tale. In the case of Angelica (Penelope Cruz), her only desire is to save the soul of her evil father, the brutal Pirate Blackbeard (Ian McShane). Blackbeard’s power was legendary. Able to control the rigging of his ship with diabolical effect, his crew were zombie masters of the occult. But when Angelica reunites with her

father, she stops him from taking the life of a Christian missionary, Philip (Sam Claflin). We won’t spoil how he becomes a central part of the tale, but his presence creates both a backdrop for the other motives and intentions as well as demonstrates the power of love to redeem. A familiar character from past “Pirates of the Caribbean” films is Capt. Sparrow’s archnemesis, Captain Barbossa (Geoffrey Rush). But in this chapter of the ongoing tale, Barbossa is far more set on vengeance for what Blackbeard did to him than either his struggle with Sparrow or the opportunity for perpetual youth. In addition to the theology and actions of the Spaniards, perhaps the most intriguing figure in the film is the mermaid Syrena (Astrid BergesFrisbey). Embodying the varied folklore concerning these half-women/halffish creatures, Syrena is an intriguing character. Suggesting that her mermaid tears have power as Chinese mythology suggests, and that she can lure sailors to their death with her song only to devour

them as English mythology asserts, Syrena and Philip’s relationship is intentionally perplexing on both a mythical and theological level. Resolutely uncommitted to anything, Capt. Sparrow is the personification of the films. Though in love, he leaves his beloved and rejects even the commitments of love. This is true of the film’s mythical and spiritual leanings as well as the pirates’ choice of lifestyle, making this a true Pirate’s tale as sung in the Disney attraction: “A pirate’s life for me.”

DISCUSSION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE SEEN THIS FILM:

1. When the Spaniards declare that eternal life is not found through a fountain, what do you understand them to mean? 2. At the end of the film, when Syrena takes Philip with her into the deep, what do you believe happens? In some mythical stories of mermaids, there is an underwater kingdom in which sailors kissed by a mermaid can live without drowning. Do you believe this is the point of the scene or is it something else? Why do you answer as you do? 3. The decision made by Blackbeard is assumed by Capt. Sparrow when he offered Angelica and Blackbeard the chalices. It demonstrated an evil that would take life from even his own daughter. Have you ever met such evil? How did you survive or escape it?

SB takes 7-2 win at home

DAILY SOUND / James Sinclair

Santa Barbaraʼs Cameron Gniadek slides around a tag in the sixth inning of the Donsʼ 7-2 win Friday over Harvard-Westlake at Eddie Matthews Field. The team travels Tuesday to face Mission Viejo.

The Santa Barbara High School baseball team scored in every inning but one to back pitcher Danny Zandona, as the Dons took down Harvard-Westlake 7-2 in a CIF Division 2 quarterfinal game. The Dons (23-6) will travel Tuesday to face Mission Viejo in the semifinals, and the winner will play for the championship Thursday at Dodger Stadium. Spencer Fraker, Lucas Benenati and

Zandona each hit solo home runs early on in the game. Fraker finished 2-for-3 with three RBIs. Cameron Gniadek had three hits and scored twice. Zandona went the distance for the Dons, scattering six hits while striking out nine. The Dons have not been in the CIF championship game since 2000.

The Hospice of Santa Barbara’s Leigh Block Gallery is currently accepting submissions of photographic works inspired by illness, mourning and end-of-life. The submissions, which are due by 4:30 p.m. June 10, must include a cover letter, an up-todate resume and the images or proposed work on a disk. Individuals and groups are both permitted to submit. The Hospice’s Art Review Committee can

select up to four entries for each exhibition, which will be available to view for about three months. The Committee is looking for “creativity, aesthetics and appropriateness of concept.” Since the Gallery opened in June of last year, six exhibitions have been featured.

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR THE CITY OF SANTA BARBARA WILDLAND FIRE SUPPRESSION ASSESSMENT FOR FISCAL YEAR 2011-12

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City Council of the City of Santa Barbara will conduct a Public Hearing on Tuesday, June 7, 2011, during the afternoon session of the meeting which begins at 2:00 p.m. in the Council Chamber, City Hall, 735 Anacapa Street, Santa Barbara. The hearing is to consider renewal of the Wildland Fire Suppression Assessment District and the levying and collection of assessments to fund the cost of wildland fire suppression services within the District for Fiscal Year 2011-12. On May 24, 2011, the City Council adopted a Resolution of Intention, No. 11-030, declaring its intention to hold this hearing (hereinafter referred to as the "Assessment Hearing") and to consider renewal of the Wildland Fire Suppression Assessment District.

We’re not really here forever.” While all 25,000 expected attendees are at the festival, though, they can expect a wide range of good times, said Marilyn Zellet, the festival’s coordinator. From the wide variety of Italian food to this year’s brand new use of a professional sound mixer, and, of course, the chalk art, the festival is “a true family event,” Zellet said. And that means the paintings – and their creators – have to adhere to certain rules, Zellet said. The paintings, which are sponsored by a variety of organizations and businesses throughout the community, can’t advertise or offend. “It’s more about the art [than about making a statement],” Zellet said.

But the festival does stand for something: arts education. The nonprofit event supports the County’s Children’s Creative Project, which provides artistic workshops and performances to over 50,000 kids across over 100 schools. Just one section away from Lynn, a group of artists is hard at work for that cause, making sure their preliminary sketches are just so. Painted in the 1930s as part of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Federal Art Project – which created over 5,000 jobs and yielded over 225,000 pieces of art – the murals that the group is recreating are part industry, part agriculture. “It’s not often that you get to see a work of art being created,” said Jay Schwartz, a 19-year veteran of the festival, of I Madonnari. “I’m excited about it. I love it. It’s home. It’s what I look forward to all year.”

RDA FUNDS

praised the city’s attorneys and previous councils for standing up to Guggenheim. “This is a decision that has impact not just in Goleta, but across the whole country,” Connell said. Some problems remain. The city has a number of projects dependent on Redevelopment Agency funds, which are under threat from the state legislature. This puts several affordable housing plans and a $24 million flood control project on the San Jose Creek in jeopardy. Without the San Jose Creek improvements, much of Old Town Goleta remains on a flood plain. This prevents other projects to revitalize the area from moving forward, a key priority in the city’s general plan. “There couldn’t be a worse time for this action,” Connell said.
