DEAR EDITOR: Re your Montecito Messenger article in the March 16-22. Why did you not mention that though this expansion may be welcomed so would be the lowering of their price for gas. They as well as the 76 station at the other end of CVR charge at least 33 cents more per gallon of all grades than stations in Santa Barbara. We need also include the station on East Valley Road as well. I refer you to a free gas price compare app called Gasbuddy. Howard Cooperman Montecito DEAR EDITOR: Apparently, the elimination of the world's most wanted terrorist, Osama Bin-Laden, was not good enough for Sean Hannity of Fox Entertainment and others of his factually challenged ilk. Their argument being that President Obama was asleep at the switch and woke up just in time to see the brilliant plan of his predecessor, George W. Bush, come to fruition. FYI - When President Bush was questioned at a news conference (March 13, 2002) regarding the whereabouts of the alQaeda leader, his reply was "I don't know where Bin-Laden is. I have no idea and really don't care. It's not that important. It's not our priority." This was a plan? Really? Looking back on President Bush's "plan" during his seven years in office after 9/11/01, it seems like it

involved spending a good part of the remainder of his two terms "clearing brush" on his dude ranch in Crawford,TX. and waiting for Bin-Laden to die of kidney failure or old age. Some plan. Robert Baruch Santa Barbara

DEAR EDITOR: With the start of a Chinese designed car built car here in the U.S. is the U.S. Automotive industry doomed to the same fate that Studebaker met, benign neglect, taken for granted? For some people at the time when Studebaker began a long slow death spiral into history it was hard to reconcile with the fact of Studebaker's demise after being in business for over one hundred years. For the complete story read the book "Studebaker The Complete History" by Patrick Foster, published by Motorbooks . The facts are clear and well presented to explain how and why many car companies have pasted into oblivion when they could not compete or give people what the buying public wanted. Granted the Chinese Coda is way over priced and that this may turn off the enthusiasm to buy this car now but the gauntlet glove has been thrown down at the U.S. industries door step, so how will they respond?

SB Mayor won’t reveal ballot funding sources Schneider wants to raise sales tax BY JOSHUA MOLINA Montecito Messenger

Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider won’t disclose where the money is coming from to pay for her efforts to gather signatures to qualify three measures for the November ballot. Schneider, in her first term as mayor, has been making calls and raising money to pay signature gatherers who are out on the streets trying to qualify her controversial ballot proposals. Schneider, however, has decided to keep the sources of the funding secret. “There are a number of community groups and individuals putting money into this,” Schneider told The Montecito Messenger. “A number of them are people who I have known for a number of years.” The mayor also declined to release her fundraising goal for the effort, a move that she described as “typical of campaigns.” She said the sources of funding would be released later in the summer, per statewide reporting rules. Schneider’s lack of disclosure is the latest mystery surrounding the ballot proposals. The mayor stunned the political establishment when she announced her plan to “Invest in Santa Barbara” in February. Her plan included forcing police officers and firefighters to pay 100 percent of their employee contributions to their public employee retirement plans. She married that proposal to a half-cent increase in the sales tax. Both must pass for either to go into effect. She also wants to increase fees for downtown businesses that serve alcohol past 11 p.m. because she says they create a strain on public safety resources. She recently dropped a fourth advisory measure that she proposed for the ballot which would have allowed some of the sales tax money to go to the Santa Barbara Unified School District. School officials, however, opposed the timing of her measure because they were concerned that it would conflict with two June parcel tax proposals on the ballot.

Schneider announced her proposals from a private suite above Starbucks on State Street, with no supporters in attendance. She has been trying to explain the logic behind her proposals ever since. Police and fire unions, SEIU, city, county and many education officials were all taken aback by the proposals. Schneider said she spoke to a few key people about the proposals before going forward, but declined to state whom. None of the county supervisors were contacted, and neither were members of the Santa Barbara Education Foundation. Schneider’s willingness to strike out on her own has sparked division between her and many of her longtime allies. The Santa Barbara County Democratic Party formally called on her to suspend her signature gathering until there is more opportunity for public input. Police and fire unions have not taken a position on her proposals. In eight years as an elected official – six as a councilwoman and two as mayor – Schneider has never faced this kind of public opposition. The mayor is normally careful, cautious and guarded. In eight years she has rarely blundered, and she developed a reputation as coalition-builder who valued public opinion over personal agenda. But now Schneider faces criticism for proposing her ballot measures. Business leaders have had a lukewarm

response to her proposal to increase fees to establishments that serve alcohol past 11 p.m. Economists have pointed to the fact that there is likely to be a statewide sales tax increase on the November ballot. Despite confusion and criticism surrounding Mayor Schneider’s ballot proposals, the onetime New Yorker says she will charge ahead with her controversial ideas. “Unless there’s an alternative presented, there’s no need for me to stop getting signatures,” Schneider told The Daily Sound. “There’s no official opposition.” Daraka Larimore-Hall, chairman of the party, said that there needs to be a community dialogue before an alternative can be presented. “Any alternative should come from discussion, with a broad swath of stakeholders, and in the meantime, we’ve asked the mayor to stop circulating this set of proposals,” LarimoreHall said. “It is very important for people to understand that once a ballot measure qualifies for the ballot it cannot be altered.” Schneider needs 15 percent of the city’s registered voters, or about 6,700 people, to sign each petition to qualify it for the ballot. The mayor said she hopes people get past the process and focus on her measures. Someone, she said, needs to address the issue of pension reform. As the mayor, she believes it is her job to take a leadership position. In response to criticism that she didn’t vet the proposal with the community and has decided to pay people to gather signatures regardless of community input, Schneider said: “Asking voters to sign the petition is part of the vetting process.” Schneider said she’s not doing this to jumpstart her re-election campaign or any other political office she may seek down the line. “If I was solely concerned about my re-election, I wouldn’t do this,” Schneider said. “I understand this is a political risk. But it can also be a great thing for the city.”

TAKE 2

In the Blink of an Eye

Michael Brinkenhoff wanted to do something special for his wife. Gayle had been diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 33 after her mother -- who was dying from the disease -begged her to get a mammogram. “I did MARILYN everything possible to avoid breast cancer my whole life. I exercised, I nursed my kids, I had them young, I wasn’t overweight, I ate a really healthy diet.” But her genetic makeup overruled and Gayle began a 22-year battle with the disease. After a mastectomy, radiation and chemotherapy, she went into remission for 10 years, but the cancer resurfaced 16 times over the last 12 years. Gayle had just endured another bout in the series of debilitating chemotherapy treatments and this latest round had left her with little hair or eyelashes. Michael, an opthamologist for more than 25 years, thought he might be able to formulate a product that could revitalize Gayle’s lashes and hopefully, help her to feel beautiful once again. He succeeded and ultimately created something that not only worked for Gayle, but

delivered what all women wanted - longerlooking, more luxuriant eyelashes. RevitaLash is now a bestselling cosmetic and Dr. Brinkenhoff, a Montecito resident, has left his practice to concentrate on running the GILLARD company with his wife, parlaying it into a philanthropic venture as well. The Brinkenhoffs met professionally when Michael needed an optician to help in his busy Ventura practice and in walked Gayle, a vivacious, pretty, divorced mother of two. The “chemistry was undeniable” and it wasn’t long before the relationship blossomed. Michael, with four kids of his own from a previous marriage, was there when Gayle first heard the diagnosis. “We realized that every day was precious and we wanted to spend them together.” They married and several years later, had what the doctors called their “miracle baby.” The family of nine enjoyed a carefree California lifestyle. “We had to buy a shuttle van that held 15, there were always friends and dogs and surfboards.” But one day, Gayle found a nodule in her neck. She dismissed

it as a swollen gland, but Michael knew right away that something was wrong. So did her oncologist. “My doctor actually stood out in the corridor crying before he came in to tell me the news. We really thought we had beaten it.” Gayle Brinkenhoff is a fighter, determined to win, not only her own battle, but an all-out war against breast cancer. She is a tireless fundraiser, inspirational speaker and proponent of integrative therapies. A recipient of a double stem cell transplant, she continues the chemotherapy coupled with her regimen of yoga, diet and meditation. She has also flown to Brazil several times to see Joao Teixeira de Faria, a healer known to millions worldwide as John of God. Like many, Gayle was skeptical at first, but now she is a firm believer in his power to heal. “Miracles...I saw it, I felt it. The first time, half my disease went away -- my doctor noticed it immediately. The second time, I had neuropathy in both my arms and it disappeared.” Michael, a physician and scientist, supports his wife on her journey. He says it is part of the reason he fell in love with her, that she is “so open to things, so present, so alive with life”. Leaving

Michael and Gayle Brinkenhoff

his practice was not an easy decision; he misses the relationships he had with his patients and the intrinsic rewards of helping people recover through medicine and surgery. But in 2006, after Gayle’s friends started noticing Gayle’s eyelashes and requesting samples of the formula for themselves, RevitaLash grew from a small venture literally running out of his garage into a thriving national business. “I was willing to take the risk. I knew it was a great product, the work was creative and stimulating and Gayle was beside me every step of the way.” The Brinkenhoffs moved to

Montecito almost two years ago so their youngest son could attend the Media Arts and Design Academy in Santa Barbara High School. They donate gift baskets (the line has extended to other products as well) to local fundraisers and oncology offices and contribute a percentage of their profits to breast cancer research. Gayle, who has been living with stage four metastatic breast cancer for so long, is the poster child for the company and for the phrase “cancer is a word, not a sentence.” Today the Brinkenhoffs have turned a crisis into hope, gratitude, and big plans for the future.

Putting the Country Back in Crane

Special to the Montecito Messenger

For Anne Dascomb, assistant to the Head at Crane Country Day School, starting Crane’s After School Discoveries Chicken Farming Program for kindergarten through fifth graders was a natural. When she was a student at UCSB, her roommates were completing their prerequisites for the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and always had chickens around. Dascomb’s animal husbandry skills, combined with a generous grant by Parents from Crane (Crane’s parents’ association) and a large chicken coop and five hens donated by Ramsey Cronk, provided Dascomb with all she needed to launch the Chicken Farming Program. "I always say that I'm putting the 'country' back in Crane Country Day School," said Dascomb, dressed in a flouncy Western skirt and stylized leather cowboy boots. A quick stroll from the administration building past the Sprague Science and Technology Center to the far end of the parking lot leads to a small knoll above the basketball courts. There sits a bucolic patch of land that hosts the chicken coop, the chicken pen, a compost, vermicompost, the school's organic gardens, and an outdoor classroom with wooden benches and an oversized white board. “We were so lucky to have Eric Haessler, our Lower School Drama teacher, donate money, materials and a weekSee CRANE, page 11

end of his time to construct and install the chicken run,” said Dascomb, pointing to a long, extended run that is enclosed by chicken wire and opens up to the coop with hinged doors. “The pen gives the chickens plenty of room to run.” Known affectionately around campus as "The Chicken Lady," Dascomb says she loves the program because she is no longer "just an administrator behind the desk."

Children visit her all day, bringing her empty eggs cartons from home in hopes of being one of the "winners" of the dozen egg giveaways (a half-dozen each) at school assembly.

More than 150 people attended the Foundation for Santa Barbara City College’s Campaign for Student Success VIP kick-off party and call night at the John Dunn Gourmet Dining Room. The interactive six-week campaign (March 14th - April 30th) is the most important initiative that the Foundation embarks upon to raise funds for student support and critical college programs during the year. The community’s top leaders, businesses, Foundation for SBCC Board Members, current students and alumni, SBCC faculty and

staff, and College supporters came together to show their support of education and student success. The evening included hors d’oeuvres prepared by SBCC’s School of Culinary Arts students, wine, live music, a photo booth and whimsical props, displays showcasing student on-campus organizations and more. Within one hour, nearly $30,000 was raised in addition to a recent anonymous matching grant of $250,000 towards the Foundation for Santa Barbara City College’s campaign goal of $750,000 for student programs and services.

no harm in enjoying my glass while Fia’s still awake. We even go to restaurants with her and sit at the bar. Oh, for shame. Fia eats sugary sweet cereal for breakfast. It’s not every day, but if she’s not eating cereal, her next choice is a waffle with syrup. Not sure which is better or worse for her, but in any case, that’s the reality of breakfast in our house. The other reality is that Fia knows the difference between, Lucky Charms, Fruit Loops, Corn Pops, Frosted Flakes and all those highly nutritious treats. I don’t know about the rest of you, but bath time in our house is maybe twice a week. I know we should have Fia bathe more often, but for some reason, it just doesn’t happen. There are often nights when I look at The Husband and ask him if he can remember the last time Fia took a bath. We’ll go back night by night thinking of what we did and often come up with, “oh my God, it’s been a week! Bath night tonight, for sure.” Answers I’m sure there are lots of other things I do as a parent which would ruffle feathers.

and two of Crane’s inaugural chickens. The person who draws the winner of the eggs enthusiastically recites the catchy chicken phrase, “Winner, winner, chicken dinner� as he or she pulls the name of the egg-cellent prize. In fact, many of the first-, second-, and third-grade girls are “totally into the Crane hens,� says Dascomb. “They collect the eggs from the nests daily and bring them up to the office, and they beg to announce the winner of the eggs. It is so much fun to see an otherwise shy little first-grader stand up and, all on her own in a brave voice, shout out to the 280 assembled students, faculty and administrators, “Winner, winner, chicken dinner.� Besides barnyard activities, Dascomb has a “flock� of curriculum ideas. The students watched the Virtual Chicken DVD, a movie produced by Auburn University’s (Alabama) Department of Poultry Science that takes a “trip� through the hen-making apparatus. They’ve also whipped up tantalizing chocolate eggs and formed their hair into rooster-like styles using egg whites. The students crafted felt "flock" jackets for the chickens, better known in the poultry industry as "hen savers.� These jackets provide chickens with extra protection from aggressive, pecking peers, which are often

the more dominant hens in the flock. One chicken “farmer,� Rhys, glued cut-outfabric letters onto a hen saver for his cleverly named chicken "Fly." Besides the care and feeding of the chickens, the students also learn about chicken anatomy and by the end of the class, are required to know the Chicken Farmer’s Glossary of Terms from backyardchickens.com, a popular chicken blog. During the final egg-xamination, the students crowded around the outdoor picnic table next to the coop and began answering Ms. Dascomb’s questions. “What does a chicken need to lay an egg?� asks Dascomb, which is in itself a bit of a trick question. Zane raises his hand and proudly says, “A hen doesn’t need a rooster to lay an egg.� “You’re right,� says Dascomb and hands him a rubberized see-through egg with a yellow yolk inside. Other questions are asked. Enthusiastic answers are given. Each member of the Chicken Farmers Club receives an egg toy and accolades from Dascomb. “You’ve all graduated,� Dascomb says proudly as she holds up the Chicken Farming T-shirt. “And, you’re now official members of the Chicken Farming Club.� She hands them each a T-shirt. On it, it states, “Crane Country Day School. Eggucation at its best.� And, that it is.

The two-day event ended with some inspirational words on world peace from Judi Weisbart, founder of A Busy Woman Consulting, and a poetry reading by Lucia De Garcia.

Mad Men

Watch in T

By Valerie Rice, www.eat-drink-garden.com

he return of Mad Men Sunday night is the perfect excuse to get out of your nightly lounge wear (yoga pants and waffle tee for this girl) shimmy into a shift, kitten heels, put on a strand of pearls and enjoy a night with Sterling, Cooper, Draper & Pryce. It’s easy to create whimsy around the everyday events of our lives. It doesn’t have to be a big ordeal—you’re cooking dinner anyway— why not have fun with it? All that’s required is a little creativity, a sense of humor and, for this particular occasion, a well stocked bar. Plan a fun night, even if it’s just for you and your significant other or a few close friends. Tuck the kids into bed early (but just don’t pull a Betty, make sure you kiss them goodnight) and set up a

retro-inspired cocktail hour in front of your TV celebrating the return of Mr. Don Draper (hubba, hubba). The first step in conjuring up that Mad Men aesthetic is to use trays or place mats laid out to create a distinct cocktail-hour area. Then, dust off your own retro serving pieces, whether it's crystal from your wedding, something you snagged

from your mom's bridge club stash or fun vintage finds—go on use it, what are you waiting for, the Cold War to end? As for flowers, keep it simple and get inspired by something in your garden. A couple of camellia or gardenia blooms from your yard floating in a bowl would be perfect. Or grab a bunch of baby’s breath and daisies from the market and drop in a vase. Instead of making a full meal, assemble a collection of stylish housewives of the ‘60s fare: pigs n’ blanket, shrimp cocktail and of course the relish tray— black olives, celery, sweet pickles, and carrot sticks, all drenched with a little olive brine. For dessert, serves small wedges of pineapple upside-down cake.

Change it up: stir, don’tshake your cocktail. Mix your drink in a glass pitcher stirring with a long metal spoon. That clink of ice, metal and glass along with the swish of scotch is an instant mood shifter. It’s fun to serve up his and her cocktails; for the men, a classic Rob Roy and for the ladies an Americano. Rob Roy (top, inset) To me, this is the quintessential drink of the era because it’s what my super stylish dad always drank back in the day. This cocktail shows an attention to detail that reflects the times ceremony of cocktail hour. Yield: 1 Drink Ingredients: 1 1/2 oz Scotch 1/4 oz sweet vermouth Old-fashioned bitters to

taste Angostura bitters to taste Maraschino cherries for garnish Preparation: Pour the ingredients into a mixing glass with ice. Stir well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry. The Betty (Above) Since the beautiful Betty has been known to throw her Italian speaking skills around, it’s only fitting to do an Italian inspired cocktail. Plus the color is gorgeous. Yield: 1 Drink Ingredients: 1 oz Campari 1 oz sweet vermouth Club soda Lemon twist or orange slice for garnish Preparation: Fill an old-fashioned

glass with ice cubes. Build with the Campari and vermouth and top off with club soda. Garnish with the lemon twist or orange slice.
