Santa Barbara City Councilman Dale Francisco told The Daily Sound Friday that he plans to pull papers next week – the first step toward formally launching his re-election campaign. Francisco’s two conservative colleagues on the council, Michael Self

and Randy Rowse, have already pulled papers signaling a run for office. Francisco said he wants to continue the work he has started on the council and as community activist.

“We need to get the city’s fiscal house back in order,” Francisco said. The former software company executive said he also wants to help the city address its worsening homeless problem. “The majority of the people in this town feel the homeless problem is out of control,” Francisco said.

Concerns over homeless persist BY ELISE CLEMENTS

DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER

Santa Barbara residents have mixed feelings over the plan to spend $2 million to transform the plaza outside the Santa Barbara Central Library. The plaza area is downtown near the corner of Anacapa and Anapamu streets, but much of the grass area is either vacant or occupied by homeless people resting. Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider said she sees great potential in the area.

The area near the corner of Anacapa and Anapamu streets is near the Museum of Art.

“It’s the real anchor for the cultural arts district in Santa Barbara,� Schneider said, mentioning the art museum and galleries that surround it. “It’s this under-utilized space that really could be made more open and welcoming for everybody.� The city recently held a public workshop on the plaza makeover and officials plan to hold two similar events this summer. Opinions on the project range from believing the redevelopment would improve safety, to viewing the project as frivolous. Library patron Amy Odette said that when she first heard of plans to redevelop the area, she wondered if the real goal of the program was to give the homeless the boot. See PLAZA, page 12

ASK SETH & BRAD

Financial psyche near retirement

Dear S&B: Should I manage my savings differently as I approach retirement? – Ben, Santa Barbara

As you approach retirement, we imagine you are looking for techniques to solidify your income and protect against inflation so that you can maintain your lifestyle well into the future. How you manage and view your wealth in the “distribution” phase of life can often times be different than what you did to “accumulate” the money. Whether you plan to our not, your psychology and actions toward your wealth will either change or it probably will need to change as you age. This can be tricky at first. The “accumulation” vs. “distribution” stages of life are distinctly different and they often times require alternative perspectives. During the working years, the focus is on saving and growing the nest egg. As you head into retirement, the distribution stage of your financial life is when people start to convert the savings into cash flow to replace salary. The investment philosophy and risk tolerances are often significantly different from years past. The directional flow of assets is reversed and the techniques for drawing and investing the money can be different than how one saved the funds. For people accustomed to saving and with a drive to increase their nest egg the first psychological hurdle is to real-

ize that your wealth may level out, if not decline during retirement unless you have really over saved. Instead of reinvesting capital gains, dividends and interest, most people take those funds to support their lifestyle needs in retirement. Uninsured long-term health care costs and over-spending are the most common threats we see to retirement security. For people approaching or living in the distribution stage of their financial lives, we encourage time and attention focused on the following: • Fill the gaps between “known income” and “known expenses” with reliable dividends, rents and interest vs. having to solely rely on capital appreciation. This is a struggle today with interest rates being so low. • If excess income exists, could those funds be better used for estate planning purposes, family gifting, charitable

intentions, enhancing lifestyle, building the nest egg further, or addressing future health care needs. • Where possible, implement an investment plan where at least 90 percent of known expenses are covered by known income sources (Social Security and pension to go along with investments). This investment philosophy usually provides psychological comfort that a monthly “salary” is coming in. While this structure is generally the most consistent, your wealth probably does not grow like it did in the past. But the up and down swings are generally less as well allowing people to sleep better at night. • Strategically plan on where your income will come from and at what anticipated times. This is especially important for tax planning when you are withdrawing funds from your 401k and IRA plans. • Fill all your insurance gaps with coverage. In retirement, you can’t generally go and re-earn it and this is especially true if health deteriorates. • Reposition assets which no longer support your current needs. The first place to look would be old life insurance plans which may no longer be necessary. Those can often times be repositioned to create income or go toward long-term care protection. • Try to maintain at least 30 percent of your savings in “growth” assets to combat inflation. If you can accomplish more and still have the “known income” See SETH & BRAD, page 7

NEWS IN BRIEF

80-plus dead in Norway attack

OSLO (Reuters) – A gunman dressed in police uniform opened fire at a youth camp of Norway’s ruling political party on Friday, killing at least 80 people, hours after a bomb killed seven in the government district in the capital Oslo. Witnesses said the gunman, identified by police as a 32-yearold Norwegian, moved across the small, wooded Utoeya holiday island firing at random as young people scattered in fear. Norwegian television said the gunman detained by police was described as tall, blond and had links to right-wing extremism. The bomb, which shook the city center in mid-afternoon, blew out the windows of the prime minister’s building and damaged the finance and oil ministry buildings. Prime Minister Jens Stoltenberg, who was not in the building at the time, will give a press conference at 6:00 a.m. GMT on Saturday. Police seized the gunman and later found undetonated explosives on the island, a pine-clad strip of land about 500 meters long, to the northwest of Oslo.

Obama tries to save debt deal

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Barack Obama summoned top lawmakers to a Saturday meeting to try to salvage a deal on the government’s borrowing limit from the wreckage of deficit talks whose collapse pushed the world’s largest economy closer to a catastrophic default. With the Treasury set to run out of money to pay all of its bills on August 2, Obama said the window may have closed for a “grand bargain” of spending cuts and tax increases in exchange for Congress raising the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling. Credit rating agencies also want spending restraints for the United States to keep its prized AAA rating that makes Treasuries the solid foundation for global investors and lowers borrowing costs for state governments, businesses, homeowners and consumers. “We have now run out of time,” Obama said on Friday after John Boehner, the top Republican in Congress, broke off talks on a deficit reduction package worth more than $3 trillion over 10 years.

AT&T retains iPhone customers

Robert De Niro Sr.: Bohemian Artist ANTIQUES

Actor Robert De Niro testified last week against prominent New York art dealer Leigh Morse, who was found guilty of selling more than 80 works of art from four estates for $5 million without informing the owners. Why did Robert De Niro take the stand? Some of the works Morse sold ELIZABETH (pocketing the money) STEWART were original oils on canvas by Robert De Niro Sr., who was part of the celebrated New York School of Post-war American artists, famous for the abstract expressionist style. Robert De Niro, Sr. was a rising star in his day, and had a series of solo exhibitions in the 1950s at the renowned Charles Egan Gallery in New York, along with his friends William de Kooning, Jackson Pollock, Franz Kline and Mark Rothko. By the mid-1950s De Niro was showing in important group exhibitions at the Whitney Annual, the Stabile Annual and the NY Jewish Museum. He showed in Peggy Guggenheim’s incredibly important Art of This Century Gallery on 57th Street in New York. (Reviews of the show at Art of This Century praised De Niro). The senior De Niro was awarded a scholarship in his mid-20s at North Carolina’s avantgarde Black Mountain College where he studied under Josef Albers, becoming Albers’ star pupil. Fellow students included Hans Hoffman, Lee Frankenthaler and Ray Eames. In his 30s he spent years painting in Paris, where the famous collector Joseph Hirshhorn purchased his canvases; those works are now in the permanent collection of the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. In 1968 Robert De Niro, Sr. was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. Yet De Niro, Sr. is best remembered in his famous son’s own collection, and his son has been known to take his feelings to court. Last week’s appearance is the second case De Niro, Jr. has brought. Robert De Niro, Jr. appeared last week at

Artist Robert De Niro Sr. with part of his expensive art collection that was eventually part of a trial.

the trial of Leigh Morse claiming theft of his father’s works totaling $65,000. The New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, under Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr. clamped down on Morse, who today owes clients $1.65 million. What did Robert De Niro say as he stood with his father’s art in court? “Don’t call me Junior, Judge.” Before Robert De Niro the famous actor, there was Robert De Niro the famous bohemian painter, and as well as bearing a physical likeness to his dad, he has the same Italian temper. Although De Niro, Sr. died in 1993, De Niro, Jr. has maintained his father’s studio loft in SoHo exactly as he left it. It’s a time capsule of 1950s bohemia, and De Niro, Jr. has left all the paintbrushes in place; even his dad’s hairbrush sits on the sink. The studio is De Niro’s private sanctuary, as quoted in the British newspaper The Telegraph: “Sometimes I just go there and sit.” De Niro has preserved his dad’s studio, not as a public museum, but because he wants his children to “feel” their grandfather. Admiration and sadness are mixed.

In a stunning development that has rattled the local hotel industry, the owners of the Bacara Resort & Spa have announced that they have sold the luxury waterfront resort to a Hawaii company. Ohana Real Estate Investors plans to buy the elegant beachfront paradise just steps from the ocean waves. “We are pleased to pass ownership of Bacara, now one of the leading luxury resort hotels in the world, to Ohana, a premier luxury hospitality organization, whose long-term ownership philosophy aligns with our own,” according to a statement put out by the ADCO Group, which had owned the Bacara. “We wish Ohana every continued success as it assumes ownership and management of what has been and what will remain the very special Bacara experience.” Ohana owns the branches of the Montage luxury hotels in Laguna Beach, Beverly Hills and Deer Valley, Utah. Sheila Bautista, a representative for Ohana, said many details of the sale are still private. Bautista said that while ownership will change hands, all Bacara employees will remain in place. “We’re going to keep running the hotel as it’s been run,” Bautista said. Bacara management declined to com-

ment on the sale. Located on the Goleta coast, the 78acre Bacara boasts 311 rooms, 49 luxury suites as well as restaurants, a 42,000 square-foot spa, swimming pools, two miles of beach, tennis courts, conference center, and is adjacent to the Sandpiper golf course.

Rooms start at $475 per night and can go up to $1,150 a night for one with an ocean view. Suites range from $1,200 for a 545 square-foot junior, to $2,300 for a 925 square-foot signature. Penthouse rates vary according to the resort, but the price is currently $10,000 a night. See RESORT, page 10

A Santa Barbara County resident was diagnosed with the first human case of West Nile Virus this year in California, County officials announced Friday. The county has not had a case of the virus in any animals, according to a news release. “Summer is the time when mosquito activity increases. It’s a good reminder for us all to take steps to avoid mosquito bites,” Dr. Peter Hasler, medical director

of the Santa Barbara Public Health Department, said in the release. West Nile Virus is contracted through mosquitos that feed on infected birds and then bite humans or animals. Humans cannot contract the virus from other humans. People who are infected often do not have any illness – others only contract mild fevers, headaches or body aches – but West Nile can be severe for the elder-

ly or those with weakened immune systems. The county encourages people to avoid contracting the virus by avoiding going outside at dusk and dawn, when mosquitos are most active. West Nile Virus has been detected in animals in 14 of 58 California counties this year.

Studying painting in his 20s in Provincetown – the bohemian capital of the 50s – De Niro, Sr. fell in love with Virginia Admiral, Robert Jr.’s mother, also an accomplished painter, and writer, as secretary to Anais Nin. Robert Jr. was born in 1948 and his parents split when the boy was two, but his mother, unlike his starving artist father, dropped art to start a typing service, and among her clients was the theadding to savings or withdrawing from them.

The proposed Line 96 Modification Project consists of a new oil transportation pipeline approximately 9 miles long beginning just outside the Venoco Ellwood Onshore Facility identified as Assessor Parcel Number 079-210-042 located in the City of Goleta and ending by connecting to the Plains Pipeline L.P. pipeline system located on Assessor Parcel Number 081-230-021 adjacent to Las Flores Canyon. The pipeline route travels north from the Venoco facility under Highway 101 and Calle Real Street and then turns west and continues along the North side of Highway 101 along the Gaviota Coast to the terminus at the tie into the Plains pipeline system. The FEIR also analyzes, at a programmatic level of review, the abandonment, decommissioning and potential removal of the existing Line 96 pipeline, located in the City of Goleta. The pipeline transports oil from the EOF to the Ellwood Marine Terminal (EMT) where the oil is transferred offshore to a barge for transportation to market. The existing Line 96 pipeline route starts just outside the EOF, follows Hollister Avenue along the road right of way west to east to Pacific Oaks Road, then turns south along Fair Oaks Road to Phelps Road where it turns west to Canon Green Drive and then south to the EMT. Both facilities are operated by Venoco, Inc. Once the new onshore pipeline is operational, decommissioning and abandonment of the existing Line 96 pipeline and the Ellwood Marine Terminal would occur, resulting in the cessation of marine barging.

Owned by the Franchard Corporation since 1960s, the ADCO Group developed the site after acquiring Franchard and opened the Bacara, then valued at $300 million, in 2000. “Not only did we create an oasis where our guests love to stay, but we have also created an amazing place to work where our team members feel part of the Bacara family,” the statement said. Though it’s brought scores of conventions to the area, the Bacara has had its run-ins with slow-growth proponents that have opposed some of its expansion projects such as the condominiums. ADCO isn’t done with the Santa Barbara area. According to its website, the company is developing a 1,050-acre ranch to be known as Tecolote. The project preserves 94 percent of the land for wilderness and agriculture cultivation. The remaining six percent is set to hold 26 secluded homes. FROM PAGE 6

CRIME

Officers, responding to a report of a fight on the 500 block of Coronel Place, followed the suspect into an apartment. When police knocked on the door, the man who answered said he saw the fight on his balcony but denied letting anyone into his apartment. The man said he had people in his bedroom, but wouldn’t open the door. After the people inside refused to come out, officers opened the door and found between 8 and 10 people inside including two minors. The room also had a marijuana pipe and open alcohol containers. The man refused to let the police search anywhere else in the apartment. He was arrested for contributing to the delinquency of a minor and obstructing an officer and booked into county jail on $2,500 bail. FROM PAGE 4

FROM PAGE 1 safety. The council reduced the number of police officers on the street before he was elected, a move that he said has resulted in a rise in crime and homelessness. The city, he said, had catered too much to public employee unions. His message connected with voters. His election opened the door for more conservatives to follow, including Self and Frank Hotchkiss, who elected in 2009. Now, Franciso leads a conservative majority on the council, including Rowse who was appointed to replace Das Williams last November. He has established himself as the conservative leader on the council, and has emerged as the most powerful person in City Hall. “The old council was completely under the thump of public employee unions,” Francisco said. “The unions have their interests, but it is not always in the best interest of the taxpayers.” Francisco is the rare councilman who was elected to office with the support of public employee unions or developers. Francisco said that he, Self and Rowse are not running as a slate, although he is

FROM PAGE 2 She acknowledged that the city has a homeless problem, probably due to good weather, but said she disparages “sweeping it under the rug.” “These are human beings, worth much more than architecture,” she said. Schneider, who attended a July 16 community meeting on the issue, said that many residents voiced safety concerns regarding the area. Roger Hiles, library services manager, said that the library receives frequent complaints from its patrons that typically result in calls to the police. “We feel it could be

improved,” he said. Even one homeless person, Andrew Schoneman, 21, said he would like to see money spent wisely on the library. If done correctly, redeveloping the library would trump homeless lawn usage, he said. “You don’t need to be sleeping in front of the library,” said Schoneman. “The library is for reading.” He suggested people instead use parks to conduct such activities. Hiles said he thinks it would be great if the library could utilize the space for activities. “I hope that this project can result in a design that is more functional, safer, and inviting, and that will result in more library programs,” he said.
