There will be a festive 4th of July spirit all over Santa Barbara and Goleta. Groups in the cities will celebrate the United States’ 235th birthday on Monday with a slate of festivities such as parades, concerts and a fireworks show. The 49th annual 4th of July Parade, put on by the Spirit of ‘76, will be the main attraction during the day in Downtown Santa Barbara. The parade starts at 1 p.m. on State and Sola streets, going down to Cota Street. This year’s parade will feature floats, restored cars, marching bands and Miss Liberty, a 15-foot scale model of the Statue of Liberty. After the parade, the Spirit will also be

putting on a concert at the Sunken Gardens at the Courthouse from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Paul Lamberton, organizer for Spirit of ‘76, said the concert is a revival of the event once put on by the Santa Barbara Symphony. The concert features local musicians playing traditional American tunes. “We felt this was an opportunity to bring together all members of our community that perhaps have not shown their artistic talents in the past,” Lamberton said. Artists include Debra Brietling, Andy Russo, Gary Smith, Megan Wilson, Bryan Andrew Tari and the Santa Ynez Valley Choral Society. West Beach will be transformed

Monday for the 2011 Freedom Celebration. Food and drink booths will be open starting at 11 a.m. and live music starts at 7 p.m. The celebration culminates in the annual fireworks display at 9 p.m. Because of parking restrictions, alternative transportation or carpooling is strongly encouraged by event organizers. Those feeling like celebrating can spend a little more money and attend at the Canary Hotel, 31 West Carrillo St., Santa Barbara, at “S’More Sparkle.” It’s a barbecue on the hotel’s rooftop, The Perch, from 5:30 to 10:30 p.m. In addition to the traditional barbecue fare, drinks and a live DJ, the hotel offers some of the best views of the mountains and See 4TH OF JULY, page 12

Government debt and you ASK SETH & BRAD

With the August government debt ceiling approaching, you may be concerned about what it means to you, your financial security and the probable outcome. While guessing exactly what politicians will do is impossible, it is widely believed that not extending the debt limit could result in a worse financial situation than we just went through. For this reason alone, we believe the following solutions and results are most probable. Since 1917, the debt limit has been increased numerous times, usually associated with great political drama. If history repeats, the outcome will be a compromise. For the average investor, the probable result will be higher taxes for those in the upper-income ranges as well as higher taxes on dividends and capital gains. Budget cuts will most likely impact older Americans as Medicare and Social Security pose the greatest future financial challenges to the country if not addressed. And with the end of the Federal Reserve monetary easing programs (QE2), interest rates are naturally expected to rise. The summary outcome appears to be a compromised “fix” at the expense of those who are older and those who are wealthier. If this is the case, you need to be prepared to have saved enough and that you are protected sufficiently against higher taxes and increased interest rates. Without diving into particulars, the issues are straight forward, our government has been running huge deficits and we are maxed out on the national “credit card.” We have only a few options which span the spectrum of increasing our “limit” once again or making tremendous spending cuts mixed with increased taxation. Some combination seems to be the direction we are heading toward. Regardless of the solution or political party posturing, the numbers indicate that the budget cannot be balanced strictly by cutting discretionary government spending. If we cut all of the nondefense discretionary spending, that would only account for half of the current deficit according to the government budget reports. Well, then how about cutting 100 percent of defense? That does not do it either. You would have to cut 100 percent of defense along with all of Social Security and then you

cover the deficit. From all the reports and numbers we have reviewed, it does not appear as though the budget can be balanced without spending cuts to Social Security, defense, Medicaid and Medicare while increasing taxes as well. This is our conclusion, what do others say on the matter?

dations for cuts to taxes but a reduction to some tax breaks. Social Security and defense spending seems to be largely untouched. The President’s plan focuses on tax increases, lower interest costs and the majority of savings coming from nondefense discretionary, defense and medical programs. His proposal already assumes the repeal of the Bush era tax cuts already set to expire on their own in 2013. So why not just cut some spending and increase taxes to fix this today? If the “fix” was immediate, the last recession would seem like a walk in the park as the economic hit would be too great. The reason why we believe the politicians will address this “appropriately.” So what is the most likely scenario? Your guess is as good as anyone but we would expect a rise to the debt limit associated with some kind of budget limitation. This will kick the can down

‘As a society we will have to save more for ourselves, rely less on government, pay more in taxes – especially for those earning more than $250,000 – and expect fewer benefits coming from Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.’ Last December the Deficit Commission issued a report that was supported by 11 of 18 members with the following major points. Discretionary spending levels should be cut to pre2008 levels with increases at 50 percent of inflation (thus not keeping up with price increases … a further “cut”). A recommended 15 cent gasoline tax for a few years. A cut to corporate and individual tax rates but taking back some mortgage deductions and tax benefits associated with municipal bond interest, dividends, capital gains and health insurance. While increasing Social Security age eligibility and making reforms to Medicare and Medicaid. The “Ryan Plan” focuses on spending controls to Medicare and Medicaid (mostly State driven to put them in control to promote hopeful efficiency). Then some kind of subsidized health care premium program along with some similar Deficit Commission recommen-

the road into 2012 where we have the same argument again. But from all the proposals and reviews from both sides of the aisle, the themes are clear. As a society we will have to save more for ourselves, rely less on government, pay more in taxes – especially for those earning more than $250,000 – and expect fewer benefits coming from Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. And every government program will be under fire, including defense, which has to be cut as well. When the family hits financial troubles, everyone feels it. From top to bottom, we all need to chip in on this one … and for a long time. Save more, protect your portfolio, globally diversify, position for higher taxes and stay tuned for changes and remain nimble.

NEWS IN BRIEF

Minn. begins gov. shutdown

MINNEAPOLIS (Reuters) - Minnesota’s state government began a broad shutdown on Friday going into the July 4 holiday weekend after the Democratic governor and Republican legislative leaders failed to agree on a budget. Robert Bernstein photo The impasse means around 23,000 of roughly 36,000 state Pieces from last weekendʼs Solstice Parade and Festival are being dismantled and salvaged. employees will be furloughed, and all but the most critical state functions suspended. Parts of the government had already begun to shut down Thursday ahead of the midnight deadline. State parks and campgrounds have closed ahead of what is usually their busiest stretch of the year for the July 4 holiday, and dozens of highway rest stops were shut down for one of the biggest travel days of the year. As with tensions across state governments from Wisconsin to Ohio, the shutdown had its origins in elections last November, when Minnesota voters elected the state’s first Democratic governor in 20 years and Republican majorities in the House and Senate that were not big enough to override his vetoes.

Maria Shriver files for divorce

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Former California first lady Maria Shriver filed for divorce Friday from estranged husband, Arnold Schwarzenegger, ex-governor and film star who admitted fathering a child out of wedlock more than a decade ago. Shriver, 55, a former television journalist and a daughter of the Kennedy political dynasty, filed papers seeking to dissolve her 25-year marriage to Schwarzenegger, 63, in Los Angeles County Superior Court, citing irreconcilable differences. According to the divorce filing, Shriver seeks unspecified spousal support and joint custody of the couple’s two minor children. They have two adult children together. Shriver and Schwarzenegger, the Austrian-born former bodybuilder turned Hollywood action star and politician, announced their separation in May, just four months after he left office.

Court kills affirmative action ban

CHICAGO (Reuters) – A federal appeals court on Friday struck down a Michigan law that banned affirmative action in college admissions, creating the possibility of a U.S. Supreme Court battle. The 6th U.S. Circuit of Appeals, in a 2-1 decision, found that a 2006 amendment to the Michigan constitution, “unconstitutionally alters Michigan’s political structure by impermissibly burdening racial minorities.” Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette said he will appeal the ruling through a formal request for a rehearing by the entire 6th Circuit. The law, known as the Michigan Civil Rights Initiative, will stay in effect pending a final decision.

Solstice Festival volunteers are working on dismantling floats used in last weekend’s parade and invite the community to help take art apart and take some home. Solstice officials said they will give away or recycle whatever materials are salvageable and pack away things that can be used in next year’s parade. The entire workshop must be packed away into a storage trailer. Work continues until the facility is cleared. Volunteers invite those interested in picking up pieces from Solstice to the workshop on the corner of Garden and Ortega streets. – Daily Sound Staff

The cityʼs Redevelopment Agency is coordinating public workshops to discuss a revamp of the plaza at the Central Library. In February, the Santa Barbara City Council approved up to $2 million to renovate the area near the corner of Anacapa and Anapamu streets.

DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT The city of Santa Barbara’s Redevelopment Agency and design firm Campbell & Campbell will hold public workshops starting later this month to discuss the Library Plaza Improvement Project, the city announced in a news release Friday. The Redevelopment Agency is funding the design of renovations for the Central Library plaza and landscaped areas along the Anapamu Street and Anacapa Street sides of the library. The city hopes to improve the appearance and safety of the area. Santa Barbara City Councilmembers in February voted 61 to allocate no more than $2 million for the project, which is expected to take nine months. The first of the workshops will be held from 9 a.m. to noon July 16 on the lower level of the Central Library, 40 East Anapamu St. The agency is targeting a second workshop for August at the Central Library. The Historic Landmarks Commission is tentatively scheduling hearings on the proposed concept design in August and September at the David Gebhardt Memorial Hearing Room, 630 Garden St. For further information contact Peggy Burbank, Redevelopment Specialist, at (805) 564-5461 ext. 4582 or PBurbank@SantaBarbaraCA.gov.

everything from debt payments to retirement benefits, have been rising after Republicans walked out of budget negotiations led by Vice President Joe Biden last week. The political impasse has driven credit rating agencies to warn about possible downgrades to the United States’s top-notch AAA credit rating. A U.S. default could spark a new financial crisis. Economists say interest rates could spike, equity markets might plunge along with the value of the dollar, and the country could fall back into a recession.

ʻVINDICTIVENESSʼ

Biden expressed frustration at the politicking behind the budget talks. In a speech in Las Vegas to Teamsters union members he also sharply criticized Republican efforts to protect tax breaks for the wealthy at the expense of seniors. “This is heavy politics. And part of this is just vindictiveness,” said Biden, whose bipartisan negotiating group had agreed to between $1 trillion and $2 trillion in cuts over 10 years before Republicans walked out. Though the two sides have agreed to trillions of dollars in cuts, they are holding firm to some entrenched positions. Republicans refuse to consider any tax hikes, arguing that they would dampen an already sputtering economic recovery. On the other side of the aisle, Democrats do not want to see cuts to the expensive Medicare healthcare plan for the elderly. After the Biden talks collapsed, President Barack Obama took a bigger role, speaking to Senate leaders from both parties. He also chidSee BUDGET, page 12

DAVID BAZEMORE

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Treasury on Friday stuck with an August 2 deadline for Congress to approve new borrowing and avoid a default, applying more pressure on lawmakers to break partisan gridlock and reach a budget deal. The Obama administration’s estimate of when the U.S. would exhaust its ability to borrow money held steady from its last projection, and came a week after deficit reduction talks between Republicans and Democrats collapsed over tax hikes. Treasury has shifted the date before, prompting some Republicans to question whether the country would actually face a default on its debt if the ceiling were not raised in time. The White House wants a deal even sooner. Democratic officials said a deal needs to be in place by July 22 to give Congress enough time to pass it, though some budget experts question whether that would even yield enough time. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner has warned of huge risks if Congress fails to raise the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling by August 2, potentially triggering a default that could send shivers through an already-fragile banking system. “The Treasury Department continues to project that the United States will exhaust its borrowing authority under the debt limit on August 2, 2011,” assistant Treasury secretary for financial markets Mary Miller said in a statement. “Secretary Geithner urges Congress to avoid the catastrophic economic and market consequences of a default crisis by raising the statutory debt limit in a timely manner,” she said.

FROM PAGE 6 down so that I could spend time with him,” Epstein said. “The Village is a fulltime position. It needs a full-time director.” Epstein will continue to work as a consultant with Village “I couldn’t imagine a better successor,” Epstein said. “Naomi has the experience and drive to hit the ground running. I look forward to working with her as a consultant, as the Village moves forward.” Kovacs completed her undergraduate studies at UCSB and earned a Master’s degree in Public Administration with an emphasis in non-profit management from USC. Santa Barbara Village is a collaborative initiative of the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara, the Center for Successful Aging, United Way of Santa Barbara County, and AARP Santa

Membership is non-denominational and open to all South Coast residents 50 years and older. “Naomi brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to this wonderful and important community project, and we are thrilled to have her on board as the new director,” said Michael S. Rassler, executive director of the Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara, the fiscal sponsor for Santa Barbara Village. “Naomi is very familiar with Santa Barbara’s nonprofit, local governance, development, and social services landscapes, and has a great history of collaborating and working with multiple partners, which will be a key factor in Santa Barbara Village’s ability to enhance the quality of life for its members.” Hap Freund, associate director of the Village, said he is thrilled to work with Kovacs. “She will definitely help make Santa Barbara Village a community success,” he said.

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Apple asked a U.S. court to issue a preliminary injunction against Samsung on four patents in a dispute between the two companies, according to a court filing. The iPhone and iPad maker also asked for a faster trial schedule to resolve all of its intellectual property claims against Samsung. The legal battle between the two tech giants has been building since April, when Apple sued Samsung in a California federal court. Apple claims the South Korean firm’s Galaxy line of mobile phones and tablets “slavishly” copies the iPhone and iPad.

Apple was Samsung’s second-biggest customer last year after Sony, accounting for about $5.7 billion of sales to Samsung mainly by purchasing semiconductors, according to Samsung’s annual report. Samsung then countersued in California, and earlier this week asked the U.S. International Trade Commission to impose an import ban on Apple’s iPhones and iPads. In the latest salvo, Apple asked the U.S. District Court in San Jose, Calif. on Friday to issue a preliminary injunction that would prevent Samsung from infringing three Apple design patents, and one utility patent, according to a court filing.

If granted, the preliminary injunction would apply to Samsung products including the Galaxy S 4G smartphone and the Galaxy Tab 10.1 tablet computer, Apple’s court filing says. “We’re going to actively protect and defend our intellectual property and our ability to provide consumers with innovative technology,” Samsung spokesman Kim Titus said. Apple also asked that a trial on all of its claims be held in February 2012. Samsung’s Galaxy products use Google’s Android operating system, which directly competes with Apple’s mobile software.
