Morning fire scorches apartments

DOW: 12,657.20

It’s your town ... this is your paper TM

A fire started early Friday morning at 1419 De la Vina Street, reducing a building with five apartments to a pile of charred timbers and leaving the seven occupants homeless but unharmed. Liz Ortega said she’d been asleep in Apartment E when she heard yelling and crying outside.

She didn’t know what had happened until someone began banging on her door. “I opened the door and there was just smoke everywhere,” Ortega said. When Ortega ran back in to get her essential items, the flames had already begun to creep out from under the walls. Ortega managed to escape with her purse, camera and some photographs, but everything else burned in

the fire. “I’m just in such shock,” Ortega said. “I don’t even know how to take it, it’s just gone.” Santa Barbara Fire Department spokesman Hank Homburg said a call came in around 2:51 a.m. The fire started on a 20-by-80-foot building on the Flying A Boarding House property. The building, separate from the main house, had five apartments

inside. The occupants of the apartments had already left when the fire engines arrived. Homburg said smoke alarms alerted the sleeping residents to the fire and gave them time to escape without injury. “The smoke alarms really saved lives,” Homburg said.

Bitter sweet Goodbye Grant House closes sewing machine shop, but spirit of customers lives on BY ELISE CLEMENTS

DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER

A sewing machine might not seem life changing or capable of building a community. But that is what blossomed from the sewing machine given to Grant House by his Eagle Scout uncle, as a parting gift before House went to college. For House, the sewing machine marked a new beginning, even if he didn’t know it yet. House went on to create his own business – an undertaking that changed his life and touched others. Yet Sunday, after 37 years, House will close Grant House Sewing Machines. The Santa Barbara City Council member said the economy is partially to blame. He has also been too busy serving the community to care properly for his business. He will be dedicating his extra time now to a new atrisk youth program that he has been developing. In an interview with The Daily Sound, House explained that his business over the years was about much more than making money. It exposed him to Santa Barbara’s See HOUSE, page 2 DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli

Grant House, 37-year owner of Grant House Sewing Machines, moved some sewing machines Friday in his Canon Perdido Street store preparing for its closure this weekend. House, a Santa Barbara City Councilman, said the tough economy is forcing him to shut his shop, which is the last of its kind on the South Coast.

And now, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feeling the emotional costs of that loss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a real privilege to have the relationship Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had with my customers,â&#x20AC;? House said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way to put words to that. We have two different economic classes in this town, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been witness to both of them.â&#x20AC;? Both his customers and employees have contributed to this education. He described going to factories and interacting with workers. An employee of his own inspired him to learn Spanish. His sewing machines range from $69 used models to $13,000 industrial machines. Some of his customers buy them on $10 layaway. Others are highly successful businesses, such as Goleta- based Deckers Outdoor. House, who sells and fixes machines and shows people how to use them, got his start when he was laid off from Styled Steer Leatherworks, a company that eventually become Deckers. He was the third sewer hired by the company started by two UCSB business graduates. It was his first sewing job and he crafted leather handbags. When he was let go after three years in 1977, parting words clued him to the next chapter of his life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They said to me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one thing you do well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fix our sewing machines,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? House said. He started working from his car, driving around town to fix industrial machines. He got so absorbed that he began traveling across the country to receive training from major sewing machine manufacturers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hundreds and hundreds of ways to make stitches,â&#x20AC;? House said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I really studied hard over the years.â&#x20AC;? Just two years after being let go from his job, he moved from his car to his garage and finally opened a shop on East Haley Street. Soon he was supplying Deckers with all of their machines.

Tips to optimize your portfolio ASK SETH & BRAD

Dear S&B: What is portfolio rebalancing and is it important? – Andrew, Santa Barbara We imagine that navigating the economy and the investment markets are important for you in order to obtain the financial security you desire. While there are many philosophies on how to implement and manage portfolios, there are several universal techniques that you can employ to help you manage risks and hopefully obtain more consistent results. Portfolio “rebalancing” is one of the most common but powerful ways to control risks and potentially take advantage of market movements. Investment implementation should start with an “asset allocation.” It can range from being conservative to ultra aggressive but over time; the allocation will change as investment values naturally shift. What typically occurs over time is that one part of the portfolio grows faster than another. For example, if you started with a portfolio that is 60 percent stocks and 40 percent bonds and stocks outperform bonds, you can find yourself with a portfolio that is 70 percent stocks and 30 percent bonds. While you may be happy with the performance, your allocation is now more

aggressive than how you started and you are taking on higher risks. On the flip side, if stocks underperform, you can find your portfolio too low on equity holdings. So what can rebalancing do to address this? By resetting the portfolio back to the original allocation, you will find that you tend to trim back your best performers and purchase the other securities which may not have increased as much in value. In other words, maybe selling the “winners” and buying the “losers.” Another possible way of looking at this: selling those “higher” and buying those “lower?” This typically accomplishes two things by keeping your portfolio risk more consistent and it reduces emotional conflicts.

For this part quarter, if you followed a rebalancing process, you would have been selling bonds, which had appreciated in value, and you would have been buying stocks that fell in value. From an emotional standpoint, you may have wanted to so something else? Tax planning can also be integrated into rebalancing accounts where you have the opportunity to either trigger gains or losses. If you have unrealized losses, you may want to do tax loss “harvesting” where you replace the specific investment with a substitute so that you can use the losses later to offset future gains elsewhere. There are always new investment opportunities that reveal themselves. During the rebalancing process, this gives you the ability to add new investments and asset classes. It may make sense when you trim back winners to see if new investment “slivers” should be added to the overall “pie.” Quarterly reviews make sense on our opinion. Rebalancing also provides the opportunity to integrate economic, mean variance optimization and capital market assumptions into the mix…topics we will cover in future articles. If you have a question you want addressed, please submit them to asksb@missionwealth.com.

Carp man booked for exposure

Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s officials announced Friday the arrest of a Carpinteria man charged with indecent exposure towards an 18-year-old female caregiver he hired from Craigslist. Investigators announced Glenn Merrill, 61, instructed the woman – after she made him dinner at his Casitas Pass Road residence – to give him a sponge bath. Then Merrill told her MERRILL to masturbate him. The woman left the home and informed authorities the next day. Merrill was taken into County Jail on a felony charge of indecent exposure. Bail is set at $20,000. The Sheriff’s Department asks anyone who had a similar encounter with Merrill to contact detectives at (805) 681-4150 use the Sheriff’s Anonymous Tip Line, (805) 681-4171.

Goleta driver injured in crash

A Goleta man remains in critical condition after a Friday morning accident on Cathedral Oaks Road, the Sheriff’s Department announced in a news release. Taylor Gonzales, 20, lost control of his Dodge Dakota pickup and hit a tree around 5:55 a.m. on Cathedral Oaks Road, between Los Carneros and La Patera roads, according to the report. Gonzales was taken to Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital and remains in critical, but stable condition. Alcohol is not currently considered a factor by investigators.

Ex-First Lady Betty Ford dead

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Betty Ford, the wife of the late President Gerald Ford, who overcame alcohol and prescription drug addictions and helped found a rehabilitation clinic that bears her name, died on Friday at the age of 93. Ford once was dubbed the “fighting first lady” by Time magazine because of her outspoken political views, which often differed from those of her husband’s Republican Party. She strongly supported women’s rights while her husband was president from 1974 to 1977, working the phones in a vain attempt to get states to pass the Equal Rights Amendment, which sought to give women and men equality under law. Ford also was an early campaigner against breast cancer. She underwent a mastectomy in 1974, less than two months after her husband succeeded the disgraced Richard Nixon as president. Her frank discussions about her disease helped raise awareness about breast cancer and she eventually took the same approach toward her alcoholism, which she battled even as first lady.

FROM PAGE 1 construction made the fire spread faster than in a more modern building. Homburg said it didn’t take long for the heat from the flames to begin threatening the neighboring 19-unit apartment at 1429 De La Vina St., blowing out windows on the top floor and leaving a large v-shaped scorch on the side. Authorities evacuated about 43 people from the surrounding buildings. Firefighters went to work keeping the flames out of the 1429 building, and away from the original Flying A Boarding House, which shared a similar construction to the burned building. The 40 firefighters on the scene put the blaze down a little after 4 a.m. In addition to destroying the apartments and scorching the 1429 De La Vina building, several cars in the back of the house were burned. Fire investigators estimated that the damage to the surrounding buildings and cars totaled $800,000. The Red Cross provided the evacuees with clothing and shelter. Brandon McKeegan lives across the street from the building. He could see embers flying up from inside his apartment and went to the sidewalk to investigate. He said the flames started low, but grew two about stories high in 15 minutes. “It was a pretty gnarly and pretty big fire,” McKeegan said. “You could feel the heat all the way on this side of the street.” McKeegan, a 22-year resident, said he knew at least one couple from the building had lived there for at least 15 years. “But I feel bad for everyone in there,” McKeegan said. Ortega had a much shorter stay. After moving from Bakersfield to Ventura, she came to Santa Barbara on June 18 to study photography at the Brooks Institute. “I’m finally moving to Santa Barbara and my house burns down,” Ortega said.

Louise Salgado has been in business 30 years, making fiesta costumes. Jim Jones made his first quilt out of his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothing shortly after she died. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been huge for me to do,â&#x20AC;? Jones said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It kept me off the streets and out of the bars.â&#x20AC;? Jones has made and given away about 50 quilts in the 8 years since, including one for a man whose wife was killed in a car wreck, and another for a woman out of her wedding dress. Interactions with customers like these, and with his employees, have enriched Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. With one employee, Jose Fajardo, House made a deal to learn Spanish if Fajardo would learn English. Both made true on their bargain. Fajardo went on to get his citizenship and now has a business in Bakersfield servicing sewing machines. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gained a lot of friends I would not have,â&#x20AC;?

There will be no sewing stores left in Santa Barbara, she said, and crafting stores do not carry products of the same quality. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt somewhat devastated,â&#x20AC;?

Long before Lady Gaga started straddling grand pianos during her live performances, an 18-year-old Debbie Gibson was doing it first, and with at least as much passion in her voice. At the 1:55 mark of her biggest hit, “Lost in Your Eyes,” wearing pink shoes and a blue stonewashed jacket and pants folded up to the knees, Gibson left her piano bench and hopped on top of the musical instrument during a live performance at the American Music Awards. “And if I, can’t find my way, if salvation, seems worlds away, oh I’ll be found, when I am lost, in your eyes,” she sang to the world. That was 1989, and Gibson was basking in the glow of her second No. 1 hit, an internationally successful tour and admiration from young girls and boys all over the world. “Lost in Your Eyes” would stay No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for four weeks. “I always love “Lost in Your Eyes,” Gibson said in an exclusive interview with The Daily Sound. “That song was channeled. I just sat at the piano one day and it came pouring out without any thought.” Gibson will perform today at Leadbetter Beach at the Santa Barbara Pride Festival. She’s the headliner of the free festival, which begins at 11 a.m. and goes until 7 p.m. The former teen pop star will turn 41 next month, a fact hard to fathom for those who remember when the pop star was the hottest ticket in music. She’s aged well, and gone from the cutesy, sweetheart-looking teenager, to an elegant, sophisticated woman, who looks like could double as a runway model. But adding another job title to the palette of the multi-talented Gibson might be too much, even for her, a woman who has built a career on endless energy, boundless enthusiasm, hard work and perseverance. See GIBSON, page 7

And she can write, sing and dance, all at the same time. But it hasn’t always been easy for the girl who grew up in Merrick, New York. Like many of the ‘80s stars, Gibson’s music stopped getting radio airplay in the 1990s, as grunge rock and gangsta rap redefined music on the radio. So Gibson reinvented herself. In some ways, she went back to her roots. Gibson moved from music to theatre and became a Broadway star. While other ‘80s acts disappeared, Gibson varied her experience and kept growing as an artist. She landed the role of Eponine in “Les Miserables” and reinvented “On My Own,” Debbie Gibson style. She played Belle in “Beauty in the Beast,” Sandy in the London production of “Grease.” Gibson also had lead roles in productions of “Gypsy,” “Cabaret” and “Chicago.” As a child she always wanted to be a Broadway star. “I am proud of the fact that I have kept it going all of these years and continue to grow every minute just in my day to day life,” Gibson said. “This growth feeds my growth as a writer and performer. I have insecurities like everyone else but when I face a challenge, scared or not, I take the leap. In that sense I am brave and continue to push myself and stretch and grow. I don’t have any other measure for success than that.” FROM PAGE 6

Gibson, who as child idolized the likes of Billy Joel and Elton John, said being on top of the charts has never been what drives her. Personal growth and achievement always comes first, she said. “If I am running in place, yet have hit records, that is not success to me,” Gibson said. “And on the flip side, if I am growing daily, whether the world knows about it or recognizes it or not, I am successful!” In 1988, a 16-year-old Debbie Gibson became the youngest singer to ever write, arrange, produce and perform a No. 1 song. “Foolish Beat,” capped a series of hit singles, such as “Shake Your Love,” and “Only in My Dreams,” off her debut album, “Out of the Blue.” Sweet, wholesome and irresistibly cute, Gibson caught the eye of the music industry not necessarily because of her vocal abilities, but because of her talent as songwriter. Sure, teens have had hits songs, but Gibson was different. She idolized songwriters growing up and had developed into a talented young piano player and musician. As a child she taught herself how to play the ukulele and wrote her first song at the age of 5, called, “Make Sure You Know Your Classroom.” Her first album was released in 1987 and in 1989, the same year she performed at the American Music Awards, she won the ASCAP Songwriter of the Year award, tying with Bruce Springsteen. As successful as she was right out of the

gate, Gibson followed up her debut with an anthem album, “Electric Youth,” a song with a message that she has certainly taken to heart: Age is just a number. Gibson has also starred in a handful of movies, and released 9 studio albums in the last two decades. Her music and songwriting has grown with each album, where she has focused on everything from social issues to respecting your elders. In the 1990s, she sang about safe sex and AIDS prevention in the song, “Kisses 4 One,” from the album “Body Mind Soul.” On the song, “Two Young Kids” from the album “Think With Your Heart,” Gibson sings a love letter to her grandparents, in admiration of their 50 years together, through thick and thin. She has also regularly performed at Pride Festivals over the years. “I have a wonderful, loving relationship with the gay community since I was 16 and performing “Only in My Dreams” in gay clubs around the country,” Gibson said. “ … Prides are a celebration of being yourself. That is a beautiful reason to have a party!” Of all her strengths, Gibson’s greatest strength is perhaps the ability to be herself, through personal and professional ups and downs. She is where she is, not because of anyone or anything, other than her own ambition and drive to be her personal best. In that regard, she has something else in common with Lady Gaga (who was famously cut by her first record label), besides performing on top of musical instruments. “Just do what you do, enjoy it, listen to cues

ANTIQUES STEWART

Mike Mitchell.” Sales are expected to reach $100,000 or more. Don’t be afraid, take those old film canisters in! You might get lucky. If you are interested in Beatles memorabilia, the most valuable collectibles (including not only records but dolls, photos, shirts) came out between 1964-68 and are marked “NEMS.” Pick up Perry Cox’ book, “The Official Price Guide to the Beatles,” for more information. A 45-rpm record sleeve with bold blue ink signatures off all four Beatles, plus 1960’s WQAM radio DJ Charlie Murdoch’s John Hancock from Sept.11, 1964, realized more than $6,000. If you missed this next auction, and you are a chess fan, you will be heartbroken, because you could have bought the chess set used by Bobby Fischer and Boris Spassky in 1972 at the World Chess Championship in Iceland, signed by both masters. The board and the pieces went for $76,275 at Philip Weiss Auctions in New York in April. There’s nothing special about the wooden board, except for the signatures and the provenance. Just another example why provenance is important, and should be noted even in your own collections for future generations.

FROM PAGE 3

This chess set is the “back room” board – Fischer had a tantrum when he lost his second match and blamed his loss on the cameras in the main hall. So this, the third match board, was used in a small private room with no cameras. Fischer won, and captured the title. And of course the auction house got a hold of Fischer’s letters to Zita, the love of his life, and auctioned them, too for $9,888. Finally, I visited a client who had a great old late-1960s California psychedelic rock concert poster tacked up on a wall. These are highly collectible. If you were at the California Rock Festival in San Jose May 2325, 1969, you would have seen Jim Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Jefferson Airplane, Eric Burdon, Chuck Berry and Santana. The little poster, originally designed by Linda Segul, is 14x20”, in pristine condition, and it fetched more than $2,000 last week. The ‘60s and ‘70s rock items are getting red hot, and we here in Santa Barbara saw the greats early and often, so scour your shoeboxes in the closet and trunks in the garage!
