PUBLISHER’S NOTE

This week I have a few things to gush about. As you may or may not know, a few weeks back we placed ourselves on the Montecito Messenger Watch List after receiving numerous complaints concerning home delivery. Several residents voiced littering and security concerns regarding JERAMY our distribution method. Problem solved. Today we are proud to announce we are officially the only newspaper in the universe with guaranteed delivery to every home in Montecito. While we land on news stands all over the South Coast every Friday morning, beginning with this edition — our ninth already — we will be mailed to every home in 93108 every Saturday. This is a huge step for us as we spent a great deal of time pondering ways to quash concerns about home delivery. Keeping Montecito informed is our number one priority, but keeping it clean and safe is also high on our list. And due to high demand for our new

publication, we’ve upped our distribution by another 1,000 copies this week and added dozens of new pick-up locations. Best of all, we have another fantastic issue out this week and at 28 pages, it’s our biggest issue yet.

Caltrans Joshua Molina’s cover story on GORDON what Caltrans has in mind for the 101 through Montecito and beyond is a real eye-opener. Assuming current plans are executed, there will be at least two fundamental impacts on our community. The first is even more congestion on the freeway as various aspects of the work proceed. Over the years another lane will be added, bridges demolished or reconfigured, and exits and entrances closed. Increased congestion on the freeway is a certainty, meaning congestion elsewhere, as well: the best example being Cabrillo Boulevard near the Andree Clark Bird Refuge. What once was a fairly easy way south and east around 101 jams is now, itself, often clogged. One driver reported a 20-minute stop and go pace from East

Beach to the stoplight under the 101 near Vons. The second inevitable impact, and a real quality of life changer for Montecito, is what will happen to our surface streets. As Caltrans works to speed traffic north and south, people who are trying to access or leave the freeway at traditional Montecito access points will have fewer options. Molina’s story has all of the details about what is planned and when it will happen. Bottom line is that Montecito’s rural character will be diminished and it will become increasingly tough to get around certain parts of town, particularly the Lower Village and its access roads. Miramar Editorial Just for the record, in case you missed last week’s edition, this paper expressed the opinion that Los Angeles developer Caruso Affiliated has a civic responsibility to demolish the ruins of the Miramar Hotel now. We pointed out that demolition could be accomplished without triggering the project’s overall completion clock. The 850plus member Montecito Association took

this same position over a year ago. You can vote on this issue and read the editorial at www.montecitomessenger.com.

Write to us We know we’re the new kid on the block, but we want to hear from you. Send us letters to the editor on anything Montecito and we will publish them in the paper. If you have a concern, a complaint or just want your chance to talk about whatever, send us an email to Letters@MontecitoMessenger.com. Please be sure to include your name, address and telephone number for verification purposes only.

Viva La Fiesta And finally, I hope everyone has a fun, safe Fiesta weekend. Love it or hate it, Fiesta is one of Santa Barbara’s oldest traditions and definitely the biggest party of the year. If you missed last week’s Fiesta cover story by Ann Peyrat, I suggest you check it out online at MontecitoMessenger.com. It has everything you ever wanted to know about the 87-year-old celebration. Jeramy Gordon, publisher

WATCH LIST

This weekly feature highlights necessary “fixes” that are obvious to any passerby. We’ve checked another item off the list this week ... ourselves! We put ourselves on the list due to issues with our home delivery, but effective today, we’ve decided to deliver the paper via U.S. mail, eliminating any littering or security concerns. Please email us your suggestions, with location and photo, to WatchList@MontecitoMessenger.com

The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors approved the San Ysidro Road Safe Routes to School path plans at its Tuesday meeting this week. The 2,400-foot path will run along San Ysidro Road from North Jameson Lane to Montecito Union Elementary School. Construction is scheduled to begin this month and is expected to be completed in November. The construction contract of about $320,000 was awarded to D-Kal Engineering, Inc. One resident voiced concern about the project. Kellam DeForest said he was concerned with the aesthetics and environmental impact of the project.

He said that orange dots on concrete ramps that are part of project “could be quite ugly.” DeForest was also concerned for the safety of the many Camphor trees in the area. “I would hope that great care would be taken by the contractor,” he said. Supervisor Salud Carbajal, who represents Montecito, told DeForest that the board worked with the community on the project, and that the Montecito Association approved the plans. Could Bacara Foreshadow Miramar? The Bacara Resort & Spa has been sold to an investment firm from Hawaii for just half of its original construction cost, according to published reports,

which said it cost $220 million to build the property last decade. The news prompted a Montecito Messenger reader to email the paper the following note: “Considering the huge sale price reduction on the Bacara (obviously losing money), I now find it difficult to believe Rick Caruso will ever rebuild the Miramar. The new build figures and pay back certainly do not add up now!” Recently Caruso Affiliated, the Los Angeles developer, released a statement that said in part, “Given the uniqueness of this project and the improving market, we remain cautiously optimistic that we’ll be able to move forward in the months ahead.”

VOICES

R.H.I.P (Royalty Has Its Privileges)

For my column this week I thought I would tackle what has been one of the great mysteries around here. Something has been nagging at many of us for the past two weeks. Did the opposing players go easy on Prince William in that polo game he played in CRAIG when he was here recently? The guy scored four goals you know. I’ll explain a little later why that’s raising eyebrows among some skeptics. I know what you must be thinking. What the heck does Craig Smith know about polo? The answer is, more than you might think. Many years ago when I first came to town, I went out with a woman a couple of times and was beginning to wonder whether I was going to invoke the three strikes law against her and move on. So, one evening over drinks, I subtly asked her whether I stood a chance of ever getting past first base. My baseball metaphor was responded to with some straight talk from an equestrienne. “Not unless you have a big fat wallet and a whole bunch of polo ponies for me to ride!” Swell. All it takes is a jigger or two for her to be telling me I better know how to play a chukker or two. Not only was she looking for a polo player, she wanted a patron to boot! The patron is the “big daddy.” He’s the

guy who owns the horses, puts up the money for the tournament and recruits the other players for his team. Back then I had as much chance of becoming a patron as a black man had of being elected President. Well, I figured even if I was never going to saddle up SMITH on a polo pony, I should learn a little bit about polo so I could at least talk a good game. So, let me put that knowledge to work to answer the question: Did the other players ease up on His Royal Highness last month? First clue that The Prince shouldn’t be scoring four goals is the number he wore on his polo shirt during the match. While a baseball player might choose and wear a number because he feels it is lucky or has some sentimental meaning, polo players wear numbers that correspond to their assigned duties on the field. There are four polo players on each team and no reserves or substitutes. The best player on the team is usually the player wearing number 3. He is the one who is expected to be the big scorer. The second best player on the team usually wears number 2 and the primary defensive player on the team wears number 4, the number The Prince wore. Now, I didn’t say this was

the weakest player on the team. Not by any means. But this is supposed to be the player whose primary duty is to play defense. So The Prince is supposed to be playing defense and he scored four of the five goals that were scored by his team? The final score was 5-3 meaning The Prince single handedly scored more goals than the opposing team combined! This was reportedly the first time in the history of the Santa Barbara Polo & Racquet Club that a player scored four goals in a game. If somebody’s going to score four goals in a game you would expect it to be the team’s big gun, the player wearing number 3. I guess R.H.I.P (Royalty Has Its Privileges). It’s kind of like when Barack Obama showed up to a University of North Carolina basketball practice to shoot a few hoops during the 2008 campaign. When he drove the lane trying to get a lay-up I didn’t see any North Carolina players stepping into the paint and planting their feet in order to draw the charging foul let alone trying to send him any messages about whose “house” he was in. I rest my case. By the way, anybody out there know if there’s any trash talking in polo? I mean other than what I heard at that bar a long, long time ago. Craig Smith is a local blogger and cultural scene observer.

Jill Latham with a Vibrant Earth Juice.

MONTECITO MESSENGER / Judy Foreman

Liquid nutrition from the ground up: Jill Latham BY JUDY FOREMAN Montecito Messenger

The words “detox and cleanse” have become a regular part of the vernacular these days when people talk about jump-starting a diet or cleaning out their bodies of unwanted toxins. I have been approached many times to try some of these programs, but there was something about this whole idea of not eating and being on a liquid diet that reminded me of prepping for a colonoscopy. My fear of the detox and cleanse process was recently debunked after being introduced to Jill Latham, one of Santa Barbara’s newest young entrepreneurs and owner of Vibrant Earth Juices. A recent transplant from Thousand Oaks, she was drawn to the Santa Barbara area, which is not saturated with such companies as is Los Angeles. Being drawn to the health-conscious and outdoorsy lifestyle and accessibility to organic fresh fruits and vegetables yearround, Jill felt the Central Coast was the ideal place to launch her business. Giving up a lucrative career in Hollywood’s fast lane with a management company laden with stress and anxiety, Jill began drinking fresh raw juice five years ago while taking a time out at the Miraval Wellness Resort. Upon returning home, she immediately began the journey to juicing her own fruits and vegetables, making these juices part of her daily life. According to Ms. Latham, “The benefits of this new obsession were incredible.” She immediately noticed the lack of sluggish mornings that relied on coffee and an

improvement in her skin tone. Her cravings for unhealthy food went away. In addition to changing her diet, she also changed careers. She went back to school, and now at 31, four years later, has earned degrees in nutrition, dietetics, and food science, and is set to complete her ultimate goal of becoming a registered dietician by the end of this year. Jill’s concierge juicing company, Vibrant Earth Juices, was conceived and designed to provide her clients with a personalized nutrition service incorporating an abundance of nutrients through raw, fresh fruit, and vegetable juices, which she manufactures herself at a commercial kitchen in downtown Santa Barbara. I decided after a personal consultation at my home in which she introduced me to her juicing program and inquired into my current supplement regime and other prescription drugs, that I would indeed take the plunge and commit to a “three-day” freshly pressed organic fruit and vegetable juice cleanse. No coffee, no alcohol, no diet soda—only the 16-oz. juices, hot water with lemon, and, if starving, some toast with peanut butter. Jill assured me the juices assimilate into the bloodstream, decreasing the strain on the digestive system during normal eating and, unlike other cleanses, she promised me I would not be starving, overly hungry, or cranky. I would decrease my caloric consumption but still be providing my body the basics to rev up toxic elimination. I also would be getting the required 5-9 See JUICE, page 25

flaws, will always be there. Bootstraps and binding: Such concerns are not directly at issue in the trial, at least on the surface. The facts of the breach of contract case are these: In November 2009, Campbell got an offer sheet for purchase of the paper, or at least of his 51% ownership stake, from a company that publishes other weeklies in Ventura and elsewhere; Partridge, a minority stockholder, saw this as a hostile act, and found a financial angel, business attorney Joe Cole, to front her $1.3 million to buy Campbell’s shares, which she swiftly offered to do. After all the testimony and evidence, the key question the judge must decide is this: was the deal that Campbell brought to Partridge and other shareholders a formal offer that triggered her right of first refusal to buy his shares, according to terms of the company’s buy-sell agreement, or not? “Mr. Campbell can’t withdraw the offer – it’s been accepted,” Partridge attorney Gary Hill argued. “Ms. Partridge is ready, willing and able to close.” His lawyer, John Rydell, countered that Partridge and Cole used the offer sheet to “mousetrap” Campbell: “Ms. Partridge is trying to bootstrap what is a non-binding offer into a binding offer, and you just can’t do that.” Cole, who’s been quietly listening to testimony while awaiting his turn on the stand, would likely end up as partowner and publisher of the paper if Partridge wins the case, and with it the right to buy Campbell’s shares. If Campbell prevails, management would likely revert to the uneasy partnership in place before the nasty fight suddenly erupted into public view nearly two years ago, a possibility Judge de Bellefeuille at one point characterized this way: “In these rough economic times, this marriage must remain intact.” Prize-winning journalist Jerry Roberts writes about California politics at www.calbuzz.com

The battle over Highway 101 through Montecito escalates as officials propose a dramatic overhaul BY JOSHUA MOLINA Montecito Messenger

Nearly 20 years ago, the people of Montecito blocked Caltrans from widening Highway 101. It was an ugly battle between one of the most powerful organizations in the state and one of the most influential communities in the region. Although Caltrans predicted the traffic would get dramatically worse, Montecito residents fought the plan because it would have wiped out lush vegetation and destroyed healthy trees to fit the lane in. The backlash was too much. Caltrans dropped the plan and shifted the millions of dollars they had available over to other Highway 101 projects. Montecito’s power and influence won. “That was the dumbest thing the people in Montecito ever did,” said longtime Montecito resident Bob Short, vice president of the Montecito Association. “They wanted to save the trees.” Now, Caltrans is back with a plan to widen the Highway 101 again. And this time, the proposal includes a lot more than just adding a third lane. Officials want to close both the southbound and northbound fast lane exits on Highway 101 as part of bigger plan to add a carpool lane in both directions. If officials agree to close the left-sided See HIGHWAY 101, next page

exit headed north at Cabrillo Boulevard, the Hermosillo offramp onto Coast Village Road could become the gateway to Santa Barbara’s waterfront. The proposal has angered many people in Montecito who believe that eliminating the left-sided exits would only worsen traffic congestion. Coast Village Road, with its coffee shops, boutiques, and restaurants is already clogged, they say. Gregg Hart, spokesman for the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments, said most people would exit on Milpas Street, not Hermosillo. The bottom line, he said, is that the leftsided offramps must close because they are unsafe. “We don’t think it is realistic to worry about additional traffic on Hermosillo,” said Hart, a former member of the Santa Barbara City Council.

FROM PREVIOUS PAGE

Dramatic battle The rift has set the stage for a dramatic battle between Caltrans, local officials and Montecito residents over the future of Highway 101. Caltrans has proposed the $425 million plan, which would add the carpool lane through Montecito, and close the left-sided exits at Cabrillo Boulevard and Hot Springs Road. Later this fall, the agency will release a draft environmental impact report outlining several options for reconfiguring the highway to add the third lane. The proposals are in the conceptual stage. Drawings released by the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments show several configurations and proposals that include closing offramps, adding new ones, and building new bridges All of Caltrans’ proposals, however, call for the closure of the fast lane offramps.

See ROAD WORK, page 19

The Road Ahead

Overview ® The project would add one high occupancy vehicle (HOV) lane in each direction on Highway 101 from 0.44 mile south of Carpinteria Creek in the City of Carpinteria to Sycamore Creek in the City of Santa Barbara. ® Adding one HOV lane in each direction will result in a six-lane freeway. ® The project would close both northand-southbound fast lane offramps at the Cabrillo Boulevard and Hot Springs Road interchange.

The Proposals ® Option J would keep Hermosillo open as an off ramp; widen the bridge headed North over Cabrillo Boulevard; redesign the Los Patos exit, making it the main off and on ramp to Cabrillo Boulevard; raise the railroad bridge to accommodate the new ramps. A variation of this option includes creation of a new offramp that exits onto Cabrillo Boulevard, just west of the Hot Springs Roundabout, requiring reconstruction of the northbound bridge, as included in option M. ® Option M would close the Hermosillo offramp and create a new offramp that exits onto Cabrillo Blvd, just west of the Hot Springs Roundabout requiring reconstruction of the northbound bridge; redesign the Los Patos exit, making it the main on and offramp to Cabrillo Blvd; raise the railroad bridge to accommodate the new ramps. A variation of this includes keeping the Hermosillo offramp open. ® Option F would keep Hermosillo open; widen and shift the Highway 101 bridges in both directions over Cabrillo Boulevard; create a new Cabrillo Southbound on and offramp between the railroad traks and the freeway; Milpas would be the main exit to the beach.

Why ® Traffic volume is overwhelming the existing capacity of the U.S. 101 during weekday and weekend peak periods. Without improvements, congested traffic is expected to increase to 10 hours a day by 2030.

The government eye on Montecito

The debt ceiling vote has come and gone but debate continues. Affluent communities like Montecito have been front and center in the tax vs. spending cut dispute and many are trying to figure out what it means to them going forward. Let’s investigate the statistics to see why this issue is important as it relates to our economy, the government fiscal issues and the local community. While many may feel as though they already pay their “fair share of taxes,” communities like Montecito will most likely play a larger role in balancing the Federal and State budgets going forward. Round #1 of this issue was settled with government spending cuts. But it seems unrealistic that future solutions won’t surround tax hikes. With the debate raging on how to address our government debt issues, the majority of the published “action” reports come to the conclusion that broad based cuts to government spending coupled with revenue are the

solution. When it comes to wealth and taxation, the economic reality is that both are concentrated. The top 20 percent of income earners make over 50 percent of the total income. Not surprisingly, this group also controls over 70 percent of the country’s net worth. Regardless of political or social arguments, this is where the money is located and where attention will continue to be focused when it comes to taxation discussions because there is little choice (without a national sales tax). The academic question remains, how much can you tax the “wealthy” and not harm economic activity? With the President campaigning on increasing taxes to those who make over $250,000 per year, it came as a surprise to many when the current lower tax rates were extended. However, in a 2010 study, Goldman Sachs estimated a negative three percent drag to GDP (Gross Domestic Product) if

SETH STREETER & BRAD STARK

the Bush era tax reductions were to expire on an already shaky economy that could not absorb that decrease. There are two financial truths when it comes to the affluent; they have a lot of the wealth but they also drive much of the economic activity. While it is clear that higher income and net worth households will be a focus for tax revenue, the larger question revolves around structure and how it may impact the rest of the economy? This is not meant to be a political article but rather just reality. At the end of the day, you can either tax the rich or the dead. We were slightly surprised when the current tax rates were extended but astonished when the unified credit exemption for estate and gift taxes were set at $5,000,000 (slated to expire January 2013 and revert back to $1 million). Our guess would have been that a $3$3.5 million per person exemption would have been the mark because government

reports indicate wealth concentration really resides in estates at $6 million-plus. The tax planning opportunity that is currently available, set to expire and most impactful today, clearly pertains to generational estate planning to take advantage of the $5 million exemption. This especially pertains to advanced techniques such as GRAT’s, QPRT’s and other discounted gifting structures. Beyond the normal tax planning techniques, more strategic opportunities will surely surface this year as the government comes to conclusions on how they plan to tackle the debt issues long term. Planning topics we will address in upcoming articles. Brad is an adjunct professor of finance for California State University CI Campus, MVS School of Business and Economics.

Salud Carbajal The man who is at the center of the debate, who will largely carry the most influence over the final decision is Salud Carbajal, First District Supervisor, who represents Montecito. He was chief of staff to Naomi Schwartz in the early 1990s, when the first battle over widening emerged. He doesn’t want to see the same fight 20 years later. It is too big of a decision, he said, to get wrong. He encourages Montecito residents to See HIGHWAY, page 26

The new fight Still, members of the Montecito Association are not happy about the way Caltrans plans to widen the highway. They adamantly oppose closing the fastlane offramps unless Caltrans builds a new offramp past Hermosillo near the roundabout. But why go through all that trouble? “They could save a lot of money and a lot of congestion if they left it alone,” Short said. He’s not alone. “If it ain’t broke don’t fix it,” said J’Amy Brown, a longtime activist in Montecito. Closing the fast lane offramp headed

Caltrans and the staff at the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments claim they need to close the exits because they are unsafe. Statewide, Caltrans would like to reduce the number of fast lane offramps, saying that they confuse motorists and contribute to a higher accident rate than traditional offramps. The proposal is fueled by a desire to alleviate traffic congestion on Highway 101. It’s a problem that has been brewing for decades. As it stands now, Highway 101 traffic slows to crawl during morning and evening commute hours. On Sunday afternoon, the traffic backs up all the way from Carpinteria to Las Positas Road in Santa Barbara. As Santa Barbara’s housing prices have skyrocketed over the last decade, fewer workers have been able to buy homes on the South Coast. Instead, they buy homes in Oxnard, Ventura and Santa Paula and commute into Santa Barbara to make a living. Traffic projects over the next decade show the commute times getting considerably worse. Hart said, if Caltrans were to do nothing, it would be constant gridlock all day on Highway 101 through Montecito and Santa Barbara by 2040. “The folks in Montecito are at Ground Zero of this whole thing,” Hart said. In the 1990s, more than 5,000 Montecito residents signed a petition to block the widening. Today, there is considerably more support and acknowledgement of the fact that the highway must be widened. “It should have been done in 1992,” Short said.

toward Santa Barbara, and making Hermosillo the main entrance to the beach would be a terrible move, she said. “It would add more traffic to already gridlocked Coast Village Road,” Brown said. “It would draw unintended traffic to the residential neighborhoods into Coast Village Road.” The city of Santa Barbara would add a stoplight on Coast Village Road, under such a scenario. Brown pointed out that Montecito only has two stoplights, and adding a third would be unnecessary. “It really eliminates the semi rural village feeling of that part of town,” Brown said. “I think the left lane offramp to the beach works just fine.” She scoffs at the idea that people would get off on Milpas Street to go to the beach. “People use GPS (Global Positioning Systems) and the shortest way to get to the beach is Hermosillo,” she said. “People find the fastest routes and I think they would use Hermosillo because it is the prettiest route. “The best thing they can do is leave it as is, and allow the left lane exit to the beach,” Brown said. If they close the exit, the best option is to make a new offramp by the roundabout, she said. Brown, who was president of the Montecito Association in 2004 and 2005, said forcing people onto Coast Village Road would “have a severe impact on the value of our homes and the character of our neighborhood.” The decisions-makers need to listen to Montecito, she said. If not, she predicts there will be another war, similar to the one in the 1990s. “Leave our left lanes and leave Hermosillo alone,” Brown said. “That’s not too much to ask. It is our money. It is our neighborhood.”

The cuisine at night is best described as comfort food (think classic steak Diane) together with market-driven creativity like roasted loup de mer with Beluga lentils. It’s all a bit reminiscent of Provence’s Chevre d’Or or the Moulin de Mougins on the Cote d’Azur. But it is the return of regular Stonehouse lunches that excited us. The waiter got things off on the right foot by pouring us a taste of sparkling wine on the house, a nice touch for all luncheon guests.

Pascale’s Table: Mint

I adore fresh herbs and the markets are teeming with huge fragrant bunches of them right now. Mint is one of the herbs that encapsulates the summer season. Fresh, clean and invigorating, it cleanses the palate and lightens dishes, leaving a pleasant cool taste in ones mouth. You can get fabulous herbs from BD Farms stand. The owner, PASCALE BEALE Bob Dautch, a Santa Barbara farmers market regular since they first began in the 1980’s, has an incredible variety of herbs, from thyme to rosemary, tarragon to hyssop, chives to lavender and everything in between, including fresh mint of course. His sustainable, organic and local philosophy is evident in all he grows. The common name of most plants from the genus “menthe”, it has been cultivated for millennia. It was brought to England by the Romans who used to, amongst other things, pickle it in vinegar. Its medicinal and culinary uses are spread though centuries of cookbooks and it features strongly in English and Middle Eastern food. In Greek mythology it is said that Prosperina, consort of the God Pluto, grew jealous of his attentions to the nymph Mintha and turned her into the plant – hence its name.

ni with freshly picked basil, and a 10 Cane rum infused with English cucumber and mint mojito. So far, so good. We ordered wines by the glass, a $15 2009 Alsatian Pinot Blanc from Domaine Marcel Deiss, and a 2009 Melville Pinot Noir for $17. What with the debt crisis looming, we shied away from a glass of Dom Perignon 1999 at $39. We could have also ordered bottles of wine from the Ranch’s extensive cellar but we thought it wiser to try and control our own personal deficit spending. Best of all was the arrival of Executive Chef Jamie West’s inspired regional cuisine prepared with herbs and vegetables harvested from the on-

MINT SOUP WITH CILANTRO AND CRÈME FRAICHE

PEPPER CRUSTED ROASTED HALIBUT WITH A MINT SAUCE

1 tablespoon olive oil 1 Large onion – finely chopped 2 large English cucumbers – peeled and diced 2 cups chicken stock 1 bunch cilantro – de-stemmed 1 bunch mint – de-stemmed and finely chopped ¼ cup yoghurt ¼ cup crème fraiche Salt and pepper

2 cups of panko (Japanese style bread crumbs) 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves 2 tablespoons garlic, minced 4 tablespoons pepper, coarsely ground 4 tablespoons grated lemon zest 4 tablespoons lemon oil 8 halibut filets, approximately 1-inch thick

Serves 8

1. Pour the olive oil in a large saucepan, placed over medium heat. Add in the chopped onion and cucumber and a good pinch of salt and cook for 10 minutes, stirring frequently. 2. Add in the chicken stock and the cilantro leaves and cook over low heat for a further 15 minutes. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup as finely as you can. If you do not have an immersion blender, you can use a regular blender but be careful as the mixture will be hot so only fill the jar half way up. 3. Mix the yoghurt, crème fraiche and mint together in a small bowl. Add the mixture to the soup and whisk to combine well. Taste the soup and adjust the seasoning if necessary with salt and pepper. Remove from the heat. Leave at room temperature until ready to serve. Note: If you are making this earlier in the day, proceed through step 2. Add in the crème fraiche mixture only one hour before serving, the mint will turn black otherwise.

The dishes above capture the delights of this refreshing herb. A treat for our warm summer days. site chef’s garden. This is West’s second stint at the Ranch and he never disappoints balancing fanciful ingredients with the best products money can buy. His summer dishes are never heavy and complex with flavors. The lunch menu offers a daily garden soup as well as the Ranch’s signature chicken tortilla soup, both at $14. There is a jumbo shrimp cocktail ($18), a chicken and cobb salad ($24), and a traditional Caesar ($14) to which one can add chicken, shrimp or blackened salmon for $10-$13 additional. When we were there last, a half dozen oysters with pineapple-ginger mignonette was on the menu ($18); so was Iberian ham with toasted tomato baguette ($21); and a grilled marinated Carpinteria artichoke ($16). Popular entrees include a grilled nat-

Serves 8

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. 2. In a small bowl, combine the bread crumbs, thyme, garlic, pepper, salt and lemon zest. 3. Brush the halibut steak with the lemon oil and then dip in the bowl with the crumbs so that each side is lightly coated. Place on a baking sheet and bake for about 15 minutes 4. Remove from oven and serve on warm plates with mint sauce. Mint Sauce

4 cups loosely packed mint leaves chopped ½ cup sliced almonds, toasted 2 cloves garlic Olive Oil

1. Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil into a blender. Add the almonds and run the blender for 20 seconds, then add the garlic and blend again. Add the mint leaves and enough oil until it catches and creates a smooth paste. This is delicious served with steamed green beans or sautéed snap peas.

included kale, romaine, dandelion, parsley, celery, cucumber, apple, lemon, and flax oil. The follow-up, late-morning immunity drink included pineapple, lemon, mint, and flax oil. I made it through the three days with ease and, yes, I did feel great. I did not have any digestive upsets nor found myself starving. I was very happy when I drank the last bottle, though, and eased back into my regular eating with light meals. I did realize how much fun it was to share meals with friends and enjoy the social aspect of eating in restaurants.

decided to join members of a nonprofit group called Sports Outreach who were traveling to northern Uganda for two weeks. She toured the local schools and discovered classrooms with more than 70 children, no doors, no windows and most importantly to her, no books. Upon returning to California, she formed Turn the Page Uganda (www.turnthepageuganda.org/) her nonprofit group whose mission is to provide texts for schools in that area based on the belief that through education and literacy, children have an opportunity for change. It is one of the world’s worst humanitarian crisis areas and many of them have been orphaned due to the warfare raging since l987. One of Harbison’s goals is to link up local Santa Barbara schools with their Ugandan counterparts and raise social consciousness to their plight. While there, Harbison met a charismatic young man named Davies Kabogoza who had come from Kampala to northern Uganda to take part in the Sports Outreach soccer meet. At 21, he was the same age as her youngest son and she immediately felt a kinship with him. After two weeks of long conversations and watching him interact easily with both the kids and the adults, she knew that he was a leader who had the potential to really effect change in his country. When she asked her husband Jeff about bringing

question the proposals on the table. “The community has expressed concern about making sure that Hermosillo Road doesn’t become the floodgates to the waterfront,” he said. Question the proposals will result in a better project in the end, he said. “This is going to be a major project that is going to go through the middle of Montecito,” Carbajal said. “It is going to have implications for air pollution, for congestion, for a number of years. “This will

Davies to Santa Barbara so that he could have the opportunity to finish college, Jeff said “I thought you were going to bring home a bunch of first graders anyway” and they went about applying for the proper documentation for admittance to the United States. This was a huge family decision because all expenses were shouldered personally by the Harbisons. I asked Vicky why she had come to this momentous decision and she replied, “Life is a process. Things happen to you at certain times. I read the book and it started eating away at my soul. This is one of the reasons that we are all here – to help each other.” Powerful words. Davies is now studying computer science at SBCC and is quickly becoming their soccer team’s secret weapon. I had the privilege of meeting him and listening to the stories of his childhood and his dreams for the future. This soft spoken, handsome young man with shining eyes and a tremendous smile told me about working as a child in order to support his ailing mother and three younger siblings, about the two hour walk to school each day and the constant nagging hunger. He admitted that even now he forgets to eat during the day because it’s such a foreign concept. When I asked him about Vicky who he calls ‘Mom,” he said, “She’s a great mom. She’s a great and loving woman.” Yes, Davies. She certainly is. To contact Marilyn Gillard, email mgillard@mac.com.

affect their quality of life.” His biggest hope for the outcome is that whatever is built has the least amount of impact on Montecito residents’ quality of life. “Our success depends on Caltrans being a good listener and the community working collaboratively,” he said. Certainly, both sides will have to change their attitudes this time around. It’s clear already, that this time, Caltrans will not back down. “What the Montecito Association is asking for,” Hart said, “Caltrans simply can’t do.”
