Council candidates square off

DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli

From left: Iya Falcone, Deborah Schwartz, Dale Francisco, Randy Rowse, MIchael Self, Jerry Matteo and Sharon Byrne at the South Coast Community Coalitionʼs forum, ʻSo You Think You Can Run the City?ʼ held Friday at Fess Parkerʼs DoubleTree.

BY JOSHUA MOLINA DAILY SOUND EDITOR

The name of Friday’s Santa Barbara City Council candidate forum was, “So You Think You Can Run the City?” Cathy Murillo, a former journalist and now a candidate for City Council, answered the questioned square-on. “My answer is yes, I can!” Murillo told the crowd of at least 100. “But my philosophy is to serve the residents and the city. I consider every resident my neighbor.” Murillo was one of 10 candidates at Friday night’s forum at Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort on Santa Barbara’s waterfront, in an event hosted by the South Coast Community Coalition. The event was the first candidate forum of the election season. Three conservative incumbents – Dale Francisco, Michael Self and Randy Rowse – are running for re-election against a Santa Barbara County Democratic Party-

backed liberal slate of Murillo, Iya Falcone and Deborah Schwartz. Public safety and Milpas area community activist Sharon Byrne is a force in the race. Jerry Matteo, Cruzito Cruz and Sebastian Aldana are also attempting to win seats on the council. The conservatives have hired Ventura County Republican Party chairman Chris Collier to run their campaigns. After years of a liberal majority on the council, conservatives took control beginning with the election of Francisco in 2007 and culminating in the appointment of Rowse last December to fill the seat vacated by Das Williams who was elected to state Assembly. The Democratic Party is looking to take back City Hall with its slate of candidates. Although the race is technically nonpartisan, it has shaped up to be a battle between the liberals and the conservatives for power at City Hall.

The conservatives have made homelessness, gangs and public employee salaries and benefit their core issues, while the liberals have focused on building more affordable housing, compassionate solutions to the homeless problem and working together with public safety unions to come up with long-term solutions to the city’s budget challenges. Candidates on Friday night expressed their views on everything from public safety staffing levels and development to gangs and the homeless. Almost everyone agreed that Santa Barbara can do a better job handling the homeless and that there is a gang problem. Moderator and former councilman Phil Bugay posed the question bluntly: “Does Santa Barbara have a gang problem?” “When you have teens and young adults killing each other and stabbing each other on State Street, the answer is ‘Yes,’” See FORUM, page 20

What Wall Street is saying ASK SETH & BRAD

Dear S&B: When you talk to market insiders, what are their impressions of what is going on? – Ray, Santa Barbara

The guarded optimism of the past year has shifted to questionable uncertainty. If we were to take a poll today, we don’t think the confusion or pessimism is anything close to what it was like a few years back. Corporate balance sheets are much stronger, earnings have greatly recovered and the average family has decreased their debts. However, the general feeling is that a long road to true recovery is ahead. Since the 2008 crash, society in general has been skittish when it comes to investing and frustration has mounted as the world economy has not rebound as quickly as all hoped. While this has been a surprise for many, we have been writing for years now that a deflation debt cycle, one we believe we have been in for some time, normally takes 8-16 years to work through. We are in the beginning phase of a hopeful long term recovery. Many are referring to a “Japan model” that we may be following, a series of government and banking actions over the past 20 years that some argue have anchored their growth. Japan has been going through rolling debt recessions and many believe that we will need to mentally shift to accepting this possible reality. The general theme on Wall Street from our conversations is that starts and slowdowns with sluggish

economic growth are the most probable reality for the foreseeable future. Wall Street is a mixed bag of ideas, theories and perceptions. The viewpoint of one is often times in complete disagreement of the other. And while this can be frustrating to sift through the various opinions, the differing perspectives are completely necessary for the system to be healthy. For every seller you need a buyer and vice versa. Without an “orderly” system with various perspectives, we would experience an endless series of extremely large, sharp and narrow pricing bubbles both on the up and the down. As you read this we can imagine someone thinking, well, these sharp pricing changes happen anyway, what orderly system are you talking about? Take a look at the chart, “Intrayear Declines vs. Calendar Year Returns.” We believe the general media and the average investor don’t really understand what to expect when it comes to price changes.

Going back 30 years, 17 of them have intra-year declines in the double digits. Taking an average, it comes to almost a 15 percent loss each year at some point. A problem that we have today is that investing has transitioned more into speculation and that needs to change. But when we look at society, we have created a problem. We have a lot of baby boomers heading into retirement that have not saved enough money where they can earn basically nothing on “safe” investments. Previous generations headed into retirement with lower debt levels and “safe” money earning high single to double digit ranges. Not the case today. If you are in retirement or heading that way, Wall Street data is telling us that we are in for an era of lower expected returns as society is saddled with debt levels that will take years to work through. The one bright spot, depending on your perspective, centers on the emerging growth countries of the world. These countries have the demographics and the massive populations that can change the entire playing field. One thing is crystal clear however; “riskless” investments just do not provide the yield that society will need to fund retirement. So the general consensus is that risk assets should attract attention at some point in time … with positive numbers on the job front and economic activity to be the probable catalyst. Stay tuned.

NEWS IN BRIEF

Wall Street falls for 4th week

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Wall Street ended a fourth week of losses on a down note on Friday as most buyers left the market before the weekend on growing fears of another U.S. recession and destabilization in Europe’s financial system. Investors already reeling from big losses in growth stocks were thumped by a dismal outlook from Hewlett-Packard, which dropped nearly 20 percent, its worst day since the stockmarket crash of 1987. It was the latest discouraging event in a month full of bad surprises ranging from the U.S. credit rating downgrade to a sharp slowdown in world growth. The S&P has lost 13.1 percent so far this month – on track for its worst month since October 2008. Hewlett-Packard’s shares tumbled 19.9 percent to a six-year closing low at $23.60 and were the biggest drag on the Dow, a day after the company said it may spin off its PC business, the biggest in the world, and lowered its outlook. The losses follow a day of sharp declines. At the session lows on Thursday, the Dow was down more than 500 points, while the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq each shed more than 5 percent at the day’s worst. Worries that the United States and the global economy may be headed for another recession have unnerved investors in recent weeks. Thursday marked the sixth time in the past two weeks that the S&P 500 has moved 4 percent or more. For the week, the Dow ended down 4 percent, the S&P 500 dropped 4.7 percent and the Nasdaq lost 6.6 percent.

Tribune to pay ex-employees

(Reuters) – The bankrupt publisher of The Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times said it agreed to pay $32 million to settle a lawsuit filed by former employees. In 2008, former Tribune employees filed a lawsuit against the Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) trustee, GreatBanc Trust, alleging violation of pension law. The deal also resolves claims asserted by the United States Department of Labor (DOL) in connection with the ESOP and the DOL’s and GreatBanc’s objections to Tribune’s proposed plan of reorganization. Under the agreement, insurers will fund $26.4 million of the payment, Tribune $4.45 million, and GreatBanc Trust will pay $1 million. “This is a good result for all parties and ensures a smoother exit from bankruptcy once we have a confirmed plan,” said Don Liebentritt, Tribune chief restructuring officer. Tribune said the multi-party agreement must be approved by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware and by the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois.

In a bid to finish up its new campus, Antioch University is pushing to get a special designation to gain addition classrooms and offices. The Santa Barbara City Council is expected to designate 2,700 square feet of a proposed extension as Community Priority space. The project would clear out the second floor of the Anacota building at 602 Anacapa Street to make room for more classrooms, office space and a library. The university needs the designation because the new space would otherwise exceed current zoning allotments. Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider said Antioch’s addition, coupled with the nearby Brooks Institute would make a new education corridor in downtown Santa Barbara. “Having students there will create some vitality along that part of the city,” Schneider said. Trish Allen, senior planner for Suzanne Elledge Planning and Permitting Services, said the university’s commitment to higher education in the Santa Barbara Community qualifies it for the design. “The mission statement of Antioch University is to nurture in their students the knowledge, skills, and habits of reflection to excel as lifelong learners, democratic leaders, and global citizens,” Allen said in the letter. Other projects that have been given Community Priority designation are Elings Park, Braille Institute and Santa Barbara Zoo. Antioch teamed with the non-profit Hutton Parker Foundation to purchase the

Recognizing her as a parolee, the officer asked the woman to stop. She ignored the officer and continued walking. When the officer caught up to her, she allegedly turned to the officer, raised her fists and charged. The officer used a Taser but it had no effect. The woman then punched the officerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forearm. Other officers arrived and restrained the woman. They found a pair of scissors in her pocket, a metal bike lock cover wrapped around her wrist, and a stick with a sharp metal object attached to it.

Aug. 12, 1:20 a.m.: A man ran from Ralphs after he took a bottle of Jägermeister. The 19-year-old man allegedly walked into the store, took the 750 ml-bottle valued at $12.99 and ran. A police officer in a patrol car saw the man running down the 1000 block of De la Vina Street. When the man kept running after the officer asked him to stop, the officer got out of the car and ran after the man.

Lucian Freud and the Art World ANTIQUES

My dear reader Shelly asked me to write about the passing of Lucian Freud on July 20, one of my favorite artists. The world’s most expensive living artist, Lucian Freud, died last month at 89. He ELIZABETH was the grandson of Sigmund Freud. STEWART And like the depth psychology of his famous grandfather, Lucian painted in a style I like to call Psychological Realism, from the 1940s onward. Although his first works were inspired by 17th Century meticulous still lives, his style developed into his signature flabby, earthy, broad strokes, in images of unforgiving nudity. A good friend of Francis Bacon’s, Freud’s portrait of Bacon from 1952 was stolen from a museum in Berlin in 1988, lost forever. However, Freud witnessed his second portrait of Bacon selling for $8.3 million in 2008, in his 86th year, the year, which also saw the sale of Freud’s “Benefits Supervisor Sleeping” for $30 million to a Russian billionaire. At this point, size, for Freud, doesn’t matter; a self-portrait of the artist, which measures 11x8 cm. on cardboard, sold for $4.6 million recently. At this point, Freud’s work flirts in value with his great pal Francis Bacon’s at around $77 million, the selling price for Bacon’s “Triptych.” Thus Lucian Freud becomes a legend, right up there with the Art World’s respect for his gifted friend Francis. Just to make my readers jealous, I had the great experience of seeing Bacon’s 1954 “Figure with Meat” in the permanent collection of The Art Institute of Chicago last week, in which Bacon plays with terror with a revision of Velazquez’s “Pope Innocent X.” The Polish radical artist Roman Opalka also died this month at 79, which ended his one work of art, begun in 1965. This one work of art was a series of canvases on which Opalka painted a series of numbers, white on white. He used the exact same size canvas for each painting, the same type of paint and the very same paintbrush. He began in 1965 with the number 1 and covered his first canvas with as many numbers in succession as it could hold. Then with that final number one the first canvas, he began his next canvas, and so on, for 45

Lucian Freud at his easel.

years. For 45 years he painted exactly the same way, until he reached 1,000,000, when he began recording his voice counting the numbers out loud and photographed his face at the beginning of each work. Each self-portrait photograph has the same blank lighting, the same bored expression and the same white shirt and white background. What changes is his hair color – becoming whiter until his final photo this year, in which he is completely white. Finally, because the numbers he painted became huge, essentially his canvases became completely white, like his selfportraits. (St. Peter more than likely said to him at the Gates “take a number!”) Thus, time crosses the numerical canvases, measuring space and time, and time crosses the artist’s face. At auction, his three paintings, successively called Details 5006016-5023628, and the next called 502369-5049738, and the next 5049739-5065512, sold for $1.1 million. France is celebrating Opalka’s work in a show called “The Edge of Infinity” in Thonon-Les Bains this summer should you want to experience Opalka’s incredibly strange numerical journey. Finally, whilst we are in France, we should visit the headquarters of my favorite Internet art valuation source, Art Price, founded by artist Thierry Ehrmann, 20 years ago, now publicly traded on the European stock market. Thierry predicts, by the way, that China will have led the art marketplace globally at the year’s end of 2011. Back at Thierry’s headquarters, an old castle in St. Romain Rhone-Alps, called “The Abode of Chaos,” Thierry and his gang at Art Price have staged

“Borderline Biennale 2011, Survive the Apocalypse,” an alternative stage for the more money-related Biennales Art Venice and Art Basel in Europe. Thierry wants a new Art World: he writes in his Manifesto: “by transforming contemporary art into basic consumables, whose originals become speculative titles, and their reproductions becoming simple decoration sold at supermarkets, the Temple Merchants of today’s art market have stripped art of its conceptual essence and its sense of social critique.” The Borderline Biennale charges no money, houses no press, prints no program, and reads more like a Burning Man event than an art show. In fact, here’s some of the events scheduled, which begin this very weekend at the Mansion, Thierry’s own “Abode of Chaos”: the “999 Anonymous Apocalypse Art Fest,” “Human Chaos, Cyberpunk and Cybertheory,” “Hacking the Human Body (Body Hacktevism), “”Propaganda Resistance” and Thierry’s own outdoor installation, “The Torture Garden.” Coco Katsura, the Naked Cellist, will give a special performance. Thus the chaos of our time becomes the material of art, or, as I see it, a really great “end of days” party. If you want an alternative to Burning Man, coming up at the end of this month, I’ll see you there! Elizabeth Stewart (www.elizabethappraisals.com) is a certified appraiser of art and antiques.

BACK SCHOOL

Daily Sound

BY ELISE CLEMENTS

DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER

Schools within the Santa Barbara Unified School District begin Thursday, and a number of new developments promise to make 2011 an interesting year for the new district. There are 22 schools in the district and enrollment this year is about 5,500 elementary students and 9,700 high schoolers. As the district joins others statewide in holding its breath against possible budget cuts, it will also see the completion of a few construction projects and bang out a new Strategic Plan. For the first time ever, students in grades 7 12 will not be able to attend class or even receive their schedules before undergoing a whooping cough vaccination. A State Assembly bill mandating the inoculations came into effect in July. All this is happening under the watch of a new superintendent, David Cash, who took his post July 1. The elementary and secondary districts unified this May, making the unified district new as well. Still, officials are optimistic about the upcoming year, and praised the district for coming up with solutions to economic challenges. “Something parents and students can look See SCHOOLS, page 9

SCHOOLS

forward to is the continued efforts of our teachers and administration to offer quality education in hard economic times,â&#x20AC;? said Board of Trustees member Monique Limon. Meetings held last spring that included the Board of Trustees, the Santa Barbara Teachers Association and California State Employee Association drew up a plan of action to mitigate the damage of anticipated cuts. Though 120 pink slips were sent out, it was ultimately decided to unify the districts and cut school days if needed. The union saved them $10 million in cuts over the next year, and generated a little over half that in revenue. Spring Vacation will be longer and/or the year shorter if needed, said Trustee Kate Parker. So far the district received an amount similar to last year from the state, but if California does not reach its goal of raising $4 billion, it will see dramatic cuts along with districts statewide. So far the state is already lagging to meet this goal, and a lawsuit challenging the decision by the state to take $1.7 million in Redevelopment Agency funds to prevent cuts to schools poses further setbacks. Parker said lawmakers are expected to tally the results of the revenue experiment this winter and make a decision. District officials are confident that the new superintendent is well equipped to face budget challenges and will bring a skillset useful to the district. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very calm and outgoing,â&#x20AC;? Parker said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also the type of guy who will get things done.â&#x20AC;? Limon added that Cash has a record that backs the good impression he makes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think he brings in a level of expertise both within and without the district so it will be a great benefit to our students,â&#x20AC;? said Limon.

Cash was a principal of Dos Pueblos High School from 1999 to 2004 and of Goleta Valley Junior High before that. He was also Superintendent of Claremont Unified School District and Clovis Unified School District. He spent a couple of years at both districts, Parker said. Limon said that because those districts faced worse economic challenges then Santa Barbara, Cash has the experience needed. He also has worked closely with disabled students, and broadened the use of technology in classrooms in past positions as superintendent, she said. Beginning in November, the district will launch bilingual workshops for parents of special needs students, Limon said, and technology is also something that the district is continually trying to incorporate. The new Engineering Academy building under construction at Dos Pueblos will include a robotics program. It will be finished Oct. 1, Limon said. San Marcos High School is also currently See SCHOOLS, page 14

New Superintendent Cash joins a newly unified district BY ZAC ESTRADA

DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER

Superintendent David Cash in early August outlined plans for the newly unified Santa Barbara School District’s upcoming school year, which starts Thursday. The district is full of both optimism and caution heading into the 2011-12 school year. Among the major goals Cash outlined was the desire to improve communication with students and parents. “I don’t think we ask our students enough, ‘How’s it going?’ or ‘Is this working for you?’” Cash said. Unlike former Superintendent Brian Sarvis, Cash said he said he wants to meet with PTAs and PTOs, as well as parents who don’t go to formal parent group meetings at their neighborhood schools. More significantly, Cash will begin meeting this fall with district administration and community leaders to develop a strategic plan for the district. The superintendent calls it a “road map” for the next 3-5 years. Cash joins the district at a time when several schools are in line for some major changes. San Marcos High will be getting a new wing of classrooms on the Turnpike Road side of the campus, replacing old portables. Santa Barbara High is in the first phase of a cafeteria kitchen remodel – the school has made do for several years without having an on-site kitchen.

Cash was eager to talk about advancing technology in classrooms, something he believes needs to become an integral part of the education experience. “We have some programs but every kid needs that kind of experience,” Cash said. “But the support network has to be there first.” In the 2014-15 year, the state will put in place a new, computer-driven testing format called Smarter Balance, which supplants the current STAR testing. This means that the district must make some technological improvements in the next two years. Associate Superintendent Robin Sawaske called the new test “very, very difficult and extremely rigorous.” She said the district is already mapping out how to administer the state-mandated test. The district is struggling with big budget problems. .After years of sharp cuts necessitated by the state’s worsening financial condition, Smith said the district was able to close its $10 million budget gap this year, albeit aided by a one-time $6 million savings by unifying the former elementary and secondary districts earlier this year. Some of the budget problems are out of the district’s control. Smith said the district is still only able to take in 80 cents for every dollar it receives from the state. To make matters worse, Cash said about 40 percent of the money owed by the state to the

district comes as much as a school year late. Sawaske said class sizes, which have been slowly growing as the district, are going to stand pat this year. She said K-3 classes average between 25 and 26 students per classroom, grades 4-6 about 30 students, and 7-12 between 33 and 35. Smith and Cash said returning to smaller class sizes – K-3 classes used to be limited to 20 students – isn’t likely unless the state and district’s financial situations improve drastically.

Funding for music, math, and science programs are also partially funded by local initiatives, said Keyani.

The community will be welcomed to provide input for the new district during the formation of its new Strategic Plan, which provides direction for the school. Through a series of public meetings beginning in October, the district will input community priorities regarding education and resources, said Parker. They will be hearing from both large and small focus groups, she said. Though the district could feel too jarred by the events of the past year to muscle through the next, officials expressed unanimous confidence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are responding to all these state issues in a local way,â&#x20AC;?

UCSB coach Vom Steeg, athletes reprimanded NEWS

DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT UCSB soccer coach Tim Vom Steeg and four players were given a public reprimand Friday in a statement from the National Collegiate Athletic Association, following what association officials call “unsportsmanlike actions.” The university filed an appeal following what it said were questionable calls made by a referee in November at the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Championship in November at UC Berkeley. Those calls cost UCSB the title in a 2-1 loss in overtime. Vom Steeg was given a reprimand following comments at a postgame press conference. He was quoted in November by publications, saying, “I don’t knock Berkeley, they didn’t do anything wrong. But the bottom line is we are done for the tournament. What I have is a red card on a play that was not even a foul and when that player stood up he was punched. He falls to the ground and he gets the red card and the other player gets the yellow. I’m not sure how that happens.” Vom Steeg also said at the postgame press conference that he would “qualify my statements by saying I have my checkbook, so the NCAA can take my money.” The NCAA also Friday fined Vom Steeg

$600 for his comments. The association upheld an earlier threegame NCAA postseason suspension for Machael David, a player ruled to have verbally abused a referee during the game. His transportation expenses and championship per diem will also be withheld. David’s teammates, Tim Pontius and Waid Ibrahim, were also charged with verbally abusing an official and will too have transportation expenses and championship per diem withheld. The NCAA determined athletes Danny Barrera and Michael Tetteh engaged in misconduct, but the charge was not appealed by UCSB. Barrera and Tetteh were hit with a threegame NCAA postseason suspension and a loss of transportation expenses and championship per diem. “We believe these types of behaviors only serve to discredit the NCAA Division I Men’s Soccer Championship and trust that the appropriate actions will be taken to prevent these types of behaviors from occurring again in the future,” said John Diffley, chair of the Division I Men’s Soccer Committee in the news release. Vom Steeg and officials at UCSB Athletics were unable to be reached for comment Friday.

LITTLE ROCK (Reuters) – Three men imprisoned for the “satanic” 1993 slayings of three 8-year-old boys in Arkansas walked free on Friday after nearly two decades of proclaiming their innocence from behind bars. Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley Jr., known as the “West Memphis Three,” took an “Alford plea” in which they could continue to claim their innocence but pleaded guilty in exchange for an 18-year sentence and credit for time served. Their release came after DNA tests failed to link them to the crime and before an evidentiary

hearing due in December to determine if they should receive a new trial. Teenagers at the time of the killings in the Arkansas-Tennessee border town of West Memphis, Echols, now 37, had been on death row, while Baldwin, 34, and Misskelley, 36, had been serving life sentences. Despite the guilty pleas, the defendants maintained their innocence in a news conference after the hastily called hearing in Jonesboro, Arkansas, at which they were released. They said they would continue to seek justice for the See VERDICT, page 20

said Byrne, who as president of the Milpas Community Association has raised the issue of violence. On homeless issues, most of the candidates believed that Santa Barbara spends enough money, time and resources helping people get off the streets, but that efforts are disjointed. “I’d like to adopt effective and compassionate homeless policies that reduce the number of people on the streets,” Byrne said. Some candidates said if elected they would do more to help Santa Barbara’s middle class. Iya Falcone, a former two-term City Councilwoman, spoke passionately about the issue. Falcone, while on the City Council from 2001 to 2009, supported a living wage ordinance, greater salary and benefit packages for city workers and affordable housing as a way to allow the people who work in Santa Barbara to also live here. She said that she is “distraught” over the direction of the conservative City Council the last two years. “I am really concerned about the dwindling middle class,” Falcone said. “Housing is becoming unavailable for the teachers, the electricians, the first responders. This affects our multigenerational families. It affects our history.” Some candidates said Santa Barbara needs to be more inclusive of its Latino population. Even though Santa Barbara is about 40 percent Latino, Santa Barbara has not had a Latino council member since Gil Garcia was termed

out almost a decade ago. Three Latinos are running for office, although their campaigns are not affiliated with one another. Murillo didn’t shy away from the issue. “I don’t like it that our Latino community is not more engaged in civic life,” Murillo said. Cruz advocated for district elections. He frequently spoke in Spanish at Friday’s forum. “We don’t need a gang injunction,” Cruz said. “We don’t need more discrimination. We need more education.” The incumbents, who sat next to each other during the forum, said that they were happy with the current direction of the City Council. They said finally there was balance on the council. “We have moved the council in a positive direction for the first time in a long time,” Rowse said. Francisco frequently talked about the city’s spending patterns. He has called for reforming pensions. “If we do not have pension reform and pension and benefit reform, we will go bankrupt,” Francisco said. Francisco is running for office for the third time in five years. He ran unsuccessfully for mayor in 2009. The crowd was mostly silent during the forum. There wasn’t a lot of cheering or booing. The loudest reaction came on the question of what grade would the candidates give the city for how it handles its homeless problem. Bugay called on Cruz first. “What grade would you give the city?” Bugay said. Cruz’s response was “Incomplete.” The crowd erupted into laughter.

“We can still bring up new evidence. We can still continue the investigations we’ve been doing. We can still continue to clear our names. The only difference is now we’re doing it from the outside,” he said. Police at the time of the murders called the killings “satanic” because the children’s naked bodies had been bound and mutilated.
