Local bank expands 805.845.2800 | archrockfish.com
Locally owned and operated Bank of Santa Barbara is expanding out from its downtown branch into Goleta.
BY NICK C. TONKIN
DAILY SOUND STAFF WRITER
Locally owned and operated Bank of Santa Barbara is expanding out from its downtown branch into Goleta. The tentative opening date for the new 5880 Calle Real branch is July 1st. CEO Eloy Ortega said it’s the next logical step after a successful start for the local bank. With its focus on making personal connections with each of its clients, Ortega said it’s best to have the bank move out to Goleta for its
brand of personalized service. “I think that it’s important for Goleta to now have an extension of that service,” Ortega said. “We’re coming to them, we’re not making them come to us.” The Bank of Santa Barbara, better known as “The Bank”, started in 2009 after a conversation between Ortega and Tom Parker. The group acquired the bank from Capitol Bancorp Limited in 2009 and started up after stabilizing the bank’s finances. The Bank has done well since then and is now looking
to expand its lending. The Bank has most of its dealings with non-profits, businesses, and professionals. Outside of Downtown Santa Barbara where The Bank has set up shop, Goleta has the largest concentration of small to medium-sized businesses, making it the best spot to move. It’s location in Calle Real shopping center in the outgoing Blockbuster Video building seemed like an ideal fit with its proximity to the business community. The building had also been a savings and

loan in its earlier days, so much of the infrastructure needed for a bank already existed. Ortega said what sets the Bank apart is its local ownership. The three top shareholders are philanthropic organizations the Orfalea Family Foundation, Hutton Parker Foundation, and Tim and Bernadette Marquez of Veneco. All have a track record of investing back in Santa Barbara. “They’re not just paying lip service, they’ve demonSee BANK, page 3

strated for many many years their commitment to this community,” Ortega said. The Bank also focuses on restoring a personal touch to banking He said the bank wants to make connections with its customers to let them know that they’re not just another number and BoSB is not just another bank. “We want to take the time to get to know our clients,” Ortega said. But he said it isn’t just about a smile and handshake. It’s also about looking beyond a client’s numbers and credit score. Times have been hard and The Bank knows 2008, 2009, and even 2010 aren’t the years to judge someone’s finances by. “We try to look beyond just the numbers and at the plan, the business itself, and the individual,” Ortega said. Ortega said loan officers at
larger banks are often told to examine how a loan can go wrong. The problem, he said, is that if someone looks at any loan hard enough, they can find a reason not to take it. “There isn’t a loan out there that I can’t turn down,” Ortega said. “Our job is to find out how can we make up a loan.” That’s not to say anyone can get the loan they want, but Ortega said it’s often the case that the bank can get the client what they need when they sit down and talk it out. Someone looking for a line of credit might actually be better off with an equipment loan or long term capital investment. “You should be doing what you do best which is your business,” Ortega said. “Let me help you do the financial side.”
Ortega said The Bank isn’t looking to turn itself into a multi-national conglomerate; it’s local and it wants to stay local. While some of the shareholders are looking to make money, there’s no external pressure to keep expanding business. Ortega said recent economic troubles have been caused in part because managers felt pressure to grow the business no matter what and that caused them to make investments they might have otherwise turned down. “You get this shareholder pressure to make decisions that aren’t necessarily the best decisions to make,” Ortega said. “But I don’t have that pressure to ‘Grow, grow, grow,’ for the sake of growth.”

Romney campaigns in Ohio NEWS IN BRIEF
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney appealed for the support of working-class Americans in industrial Ohio on Wednesday, a day after narrowly averting a humiliating defeat by rival Rick Santorum in Romney’s home state of Michigan. Romney focused almost exclusively on the U.S. economy, China and stiff criticism of President Barack Obama’s leadership at his first campaign events after Tuesday’s Michigan primary. “The reason I won yesterday in Michigan and Arizona is because I’m talking about the issue people care most about and I understand that issue,” Romney said at a rally in Bexley, outside the state capital of Columbus. “Rick Santorum’s a nice guy, but he’s an economic lightweight,” said Romney, who made a fortune as a private equity executive
Lindsay Lohan goes straight
Troubled actress Lindsay Lohan says she is putting her bad girl image behind her and starting a fresh chapter in life, getting back to acting after recent years of personal turmoil that included arrests and stints in jail. The actress, 25, who is on probation from a string of legal troubles including drunk driving, drug possession and theft, has recently impressed court officials with good behavior and seemed eager to continue on a straight-andnarrow path. Lohan, who became a fixture on the Hollywood nightlife scene as a young actress told Matt Lauer of NBC's "Today" news show that parties were "not my thing anymore" and she was more comfortable being a "homebody."
Laga Gaga wants to stop bullying
Pop diva Lady Gaga brought her star power, her mom and some of her famous friends, including Oprah Winfrey, to Harvard University on Wednesday to launch a new foundation aimed at empowering young people and stamping out bullying. “If you have revolutionary otential, you must make the world a better place and use it,” Gaga said as she officially kicked off the “Born this Way Foundation,” named after her 2011 hit album and single, with a series of events at the top U.S. university. “This is about transformative change in culture.” The singer has often given a voice for people she feels lack representation in the media, and she formed the foundation to address issues like self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying and mentoring. Cynthia Germanotta, Gaga’s mother, will serve as president. Lady Gaga’s given name is Stefani Germanotta.
1st Thursday tonight will feature Westmont artwork
It’s located on the corner of Anacapa and Ortega, across from Paradise Café—no, not the corner that has the French crepe place, not the one with Seagrass restaurant and the parking garage, but the other corner. You’ve probably gone past it more than a few dozen times and thought nothing of the unassuming building with lightly painted corrugated metal siding, but it’s worth another look. And this 1st Thursday is the perfect time to take a peek. “It’s the only building of its kind in its area, serving its original purpose,” said Dan Patterson, metal artisan and owner of Santa Barbara Forge & Iron, which inhabits the space. “It’s been a blacksmith metal fabrication shop since the 1920s. We got into there a year and a half ago after it being closed for 11 years,” he continued, of the shop that used belong to Craviotto Bros. and is now run by Patterson and his two younger brothers, Joel and Andy. During Downtown Santa Barbara’s 1st Thursday event featuring arts, culture and entertainment from 5-8 p.m., the community is invited to the shop and its Gallery Acero (“steel” in Spanish) to see the latest exhibit, tour the building and view some of the modern-contemporary work—mostly sculptural furniture that encompasses beauty in both function and

We get to know people on a personal level.” For tonight’s 1st Thursday, Patterson will have beer that he’s brewed especially for the event. He usually names his beer after tools in the shop or after a project they do; tonight, visitors can look forward to The Gates of Hell bourbon oatmeal stout, named after a particularly tough project. But it shouldn't be a tough decision to attend. "We all just have a great time," said Patterson.

A father who really is a father PARENTING
Seven years ago today I woke up as a single person, by days end I was a married woman. A lot has changed in those seven years, but without a doubt the biggest change is having our daughter. Itâ€™s so heartwarming to see how The Husband is as The Father. Heâ€™s the father: Who plays endlessly with Fia. Who enters Fiaâ€™s imaginary world and makes it even more magical.

Whose nickname, made up by Fia is Six. I donâ€™t know why. Who is teaching her about every sport, and showing her that girls are just as good as boys. Who is proud of the fact that Fiaâ€™s first word was Dodgers. Who sits on the Dodger seats in the backyard with Fia and shares a cold popsicle with her on a warm, or even not so warm, afternoon. Who still carries her on his shoulder even though he knows heâ€™s going to be achy. Who knows he canâ€™t carry a tune, but will sing with Fia anyway. Who will watch Dancing With the Stars, just because Fia likes the ball gowns.

Who, in the mornings, makes his special â€œPapa Wafflesâ€? which includes butter, syrup, whipped cream and sprinkles. Who slowly walks Fia to school, almost every single day. Who has created PF Repair (Papa/Fia Repair) so whenever thereâ€™s a project around the house all I have to do is call PF Repair. Who has run out of magic tricks because he started doing them when Fia was so young, sheâ€™s already figured them out. Who makes Fia laugh and roll her eyes at his jokes. Who is making Fia so much wiser, by trying to pull the wool over her eyes, in such a kind joking way. Who has given his sense of humor to Fia. Who is known to Fiaâ€™s friends as â€œthe funny dad.â€? Who, according to another one of Fiaâ€™s friend, is â€œa natu-
ral at everything.â€? Who when Fia falls and scrapes her knees will be the umpire and call her safe. Then comfort her and clean her wound. Who snuggles up with Fia every Sunday to watch the CBS Sunday Morning Show. Who after watching the CBS Sunday Morning Show goes with Fia to buy donuts. Who creates the character sounds when reading books to Fia. Who checks Fiaâ€™s homework. Who is neat and tidy and instilling that in Fia. Who gives Fia great rides to bed at night and knows how to perfectly tuck her in. Who works hard for our family. Who makes it to 99% of Fiaâ€™s school events even though he works 45 minutes out of town. Who makes his family his priority. Who is making sure we are creating wonderful memories and traditions for our family. Who loves Fia completely. Who tells Fia he loves her every single day. Who is showing our girl what a great father and husband is. Who make me so happy to know Fia has a great father. Happy anniversary DT.

THE VOW: 3 stars, engaging CINEMA IN FOCUS
The question of how fate and faith impact us is the story behind the story of â€œThe Vow.â€? Based on an autobiographical book by Kim and Krickett Carpenter with this same title, the film changes the core message of the book from one of Christian faith to one of fateful â€œmoments of impact.â€? The underlying tragedy that occurs is told in both, when a head injury costs a young wife her recent memories of her relationship and marriage to her husband. But rather than divorcing and trying to find their love once more, the real-life couple kept their vows to each other and to God and found their healing within their marriage. This core difference reveals the inability of the film makers to understand the worldview of persons of faith when they choose instead to rewrite
BY DENNY WAYMAN AND HAL CONKLIN history to match their limited experiences. This causes the film to be reduced in depth and causes us to wonder what the real story could have been. The novice director of the film is Michael Sucsy, who has experience in television but this is his first feature film. There are four writers, two who have only written for television, Jason Katims and Stuart Sender, while Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein worked together to write
â€œHeâ€™s Just Not That Into Youâ€? and â€œValentineâ€™s Day.â€? The couple in the film is Leo (Channing Tatum) and Paige (Rachel McAdams). Meeting serendipitously in the city of Chicago, they quickly fall in love. Their ability to accept one anotherâ€™s unique personalities and abilities provides the foundation for a creative and passionfilled love and marriage. When a snow-storm accident causes the trauma to Paige, she reverts to her high school memories and interests, unaware of the woman she had become in the intervening years. This makes Leo a stranger to her. The journey they begin at that moment is made even more fascinating by the question of identity. Is Paige only See VOW, page 7

the sum total of her experiences, the memories of which are now lost, or is she still the same person who had chosen to leave behind her demanding family and self-absorbed fiancĂŠ and will do so again? This question is not easily answered and provides the tension of the tale. Why we stay faithful to the people to whom we have pledged our faith is also an underlying question of the film. If we wake up one day, either from an automobile accident or a loss of love and feel that the other person has become a stranger, do we divorce or keep our vows and seek to fall in love once more?
