One of city’s largest economic engines sees comeback

Santa Barbaraʼs 2011 summer tourism seasons saw slight recovery, exceeding expectations, according the Kathy Janega-Dykes, president of the Santa Barbara Conference and Visitors Bureau.



Despite an overall lackluster economy, some experts are forecasting a boost in Santa Barbara’s recovering tourism industry. Kathy Janega-Dykes, president of the Santa Barbara Conference and Visitors Bureau, said the summer’s season exceeded expectations. But some uncertainties remained and it’s important for a town like Santa Barbara to examine travel patterns, conference schedules, how people plan their vacations in order to attract more tourism business. “We need to know where this business is originating from,” Janega-Dykes said. Dan Mishell, a research director at the California Travel and Tourism Commission, told a crowd of tourism industry executives at Fess Parker’s Double Tree yesterday thatGolden State tourism is going to keep its shine. In 2010 California’s 213 million visi-

tors spent $95 billion in state. Mishell said 2011 is projected to hit $104 billion by the end of the year. Mishell said 61 percent of people said economic situation has improved or stayed the same since last year, indicating there could be more potential visitors in the upcoming year. He also said that statewide room demand is above prerecession levels. He said that stems from people eschewing more day trips and instead opting for a fewer number of overnight stays. This indicates people are starting to favor quality over quantity. “People value their travel experience,” Mishell said. “They want to make the most out of their money and do it right.” However Mishell also made sure to add “caution” next to any optimism. He said uncertainty is still a problem. With high unemployment, people are nervous about hanging onto their jobs and are hesitant to spend money.

That hesitancy feeds back on itself as it makes companies shy about expanding and hiring. Mishell said that while corporate profits are up, the money tends to stay in the bank. “They’re not really doing anything with it right now,” Mishell said. Bruce Baltin of PKF Consulting said Santa Barbara County can expect revenue from rooms to see a 6 percent increase this year and 6.5 percent increase next year. He expects the uptick to continue for another two or three years. Some of the growth is a result of market correction. Baltin said travel, like most industries, dropped off in 2008. While it stayed low in 2009, 2010 saw gains as the financial situation showed some signs of stabilizing, if not recoverying. “We’re getting back to a more normalized travel pattern,” Baltin said. Baltin also touched on the need to get See TOURISM, page 11

urge you to elect these three city council candidates.




For a couple used to speeding toward a finish line, Kim Anderson and Aaron Olson are taking a “slow and steady wins the race” attitude when it comes to their new business. Anderson, 43, and Olson, 33, are both coming off of decade-plus careers as professional cyclists, have been roasting artisan coffee under the name “Handlebar Coffee Roasters,” for just shy of a year. The pair is now taking the plunge into opening a retail location. They’ve been hands-on in renovating the former home of Three Pickles at 128 E. Canon Perdido since August. After working to make the shop ready for inspectors, they opened it on Tuesday. The brand name and spiffy logo, as well as some of the shop’s décor, are in homage to Anderson’s and Olson’s pasts as professional cyclists. They met through the sport; and, among their travels, raced through and lived in Europe for several years. They were introduced to Santa Barbara when participating in The Tour of California, and have now lived here for more than three years. Anderson, who hails from Colorado, and Olson, who is from Oregon, found that they enjoyed Santa Barbara’s style and weather; also, the presence of a nearby airport was very important when they were actively racing. The decision to make their post-cycling

careers revolve around coffee was also inspired by their travels as cyclists. Olson shares that their passion for coffee was fostered through often relaxing in European cafes in after five or six hours of intense training. With Handlebar Coffee Roasters, said See COFFEE, page 16

Espionage: U.S. soldier arrested

A U.S. Army specialist who was serving as a military policeman has been arrested at an Alaska military base on suspicion of spying, an Army spokesman said on Tuesday. Specialist William Colton Millay, 22, was taken into custody at Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson on October 28 following a joint espionage investigation by the FBI and Army Counterintelligence special agents, Army spokesman Lt. Col. Bill Coppernoll said. “We do expect to prefer charges sometime this week,” Coppernoll told Reuters. He said the charges would be brought under the Uniform Code of Military Justice, and the FBI said the case would be tried in military courts. Coppernoll did not say who Millay, of Owensboro, Kentucky, was suspected of spying for or what sensitive information he may have had access to. He said the investigation was ongoing.

Slave safe haven now monument

President Barack Obama created the first national monument of his presidency on Tuesday, signing a proclamation to preserve a former Army fort that was a safe haven for slaves during the Civil War. Fort Monroe, in Hampton, Virginia, was the third-oldest Army post in continuous active service until the Department of Defense recommended its closure in 2005. The U.S. Army earlier this year handed over Fort Monroe in Hampton, Virginia, to the state and an authority charged with deciding the future of the site. “Fort Monroe has played a part in some of the darkest and some of the most heroic moments in American history,” Obama said in announcing the designation. In 1861, three escaped slaves were given safe haven at the fort that managed to stay under Union control despite being in a Confederate state.

Dealership owner awarded $7M

The owner of a large southwest Alabama car dealership derided as "Taliban Toyota" by a competitor has been awarded $7.5 million in damages after a jury trial for his slander claim. Iranian-born Shawn Esfahani, owner of Eastern Shore Toyota in Daphne, Alabama, sought $28 million in compensatory and punitive damages from Bob Tyler Toyota, claiming employees at that Pensacola, Florida-based dealership falsely portrayed him as an Islamist militant to customers. "The feeling I received in the courtroom for the truth to come out was worth a lot more than any money anybody can give me," Esfahani told Reuters on Tuesday. Esfahani's lawsuit said that Bob Tyler sales manager Fred Kenner told at least one couple considering buying from Eastern Shore Toyota in 2009 that Esfahani was of Middle Eastern descent and was "helping fund the insurgents there and is also laundering money for them."


Drinking tied to breast cancer

NEW YORK (Reuters) — Women who drink just a few glasses of wine or beer a week may have a slightly increased breast cancer risk, researchers said Tuesday. Their findings are based on more than 100,000 nurses followed over three decades and add weight to earlier studies linking alcohol to breast cancer and other tumors. “Even at low levels of alcohol consumption, three to six drinks per week, we found a modest increase in risk,” said Dr. Wendy Chen of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, whose findings appear in the Journal of the American Medical Association. And, she added, “There wasn’t a particular period in which it was safe to drink alcohol.” But before you put away the Pinot, there are some important caveats to consider. First, it wasn’t a huge effect -- about 15 percent higher risk among drinkers compared with teetotalers. For example, even among women who sipped three to six glasses of wine per week, only 3.3 percent would develop breast cancer over 10 years. That compares to 2.8 percent of abstainers and 3.5 percent of women having up to 13 drinks a week. Second, there is still no ironclad proof that alcohol itself is to blame, even though the researchers did their best to rule out competing explanations such as smoking or older age. They also adjusted

‘There are no data to provide assurance that giving up alcohol will reduce breast cancer risk.’

Dr. Steven Narod, Women’s College Research Institute

for other influences on breast cancer risk, like whether or not a woman has had children and breastfed. “This is an observational study, so we really can’t say anything definite about cause and effect,” Chen, also of Harvard Medical School, told Reuters Health. Still, she believes the link between drinking and increased breast cancer risk is likely to be causal. Alcohol raises estrogen levels, which play a role in the development of many breast tumors. Overall, the researchers estimate that if drinking really does promote breast cancer, it might be responsible for 10 percent of all cases in the U.S. “The recommendation would not be to stop drinking altogether, but to keep it below the range of three to six glasses a week,” Chen said, adding that going over that limit occasionally -- say, during vacation -- would be alright. But that’s not the end of the story because some research suggests a drink a day may be beneficial for the heart. Just recently, one study of women showed that both light and heavy drinkers lived longer after a heart attack than abstainers. (See Reuters Health story of October 27, 2011.)

“One drink a day is a really good target, assuming that a person can be disciplined about that,” Dr. James O’Keefe, a cardiologist at St. Luke’s Health System in Kansas City, Missouri, told Reuters Health last week. In an editorial published along with the latest findings, Dr. Steven Narod of the Women’s College Research Institute in Toronto said the results probably aren’t relevant for women with breast cancer. And even for women without the disease, the picture is murky. “There are no data to provide assurance that giving up alcohol will reduce breast cancer risk,” writes Narod. “Furthermore, women who abstain from all alcohol may find that a potential benefit of lower breast cancer risk is more than offset by the relinquished benefit of reduced cardiovascular mortality associated with an occasional glass of red wine.” Chen acknowledged those shortcomings and said her group is currently studying the link between drinking and death from any cause, as well as whether people who stop drinking have a lower risk than those who don’t.



Top fundraiser Deborah Schwartz received $2,500 from Santa Barbara County Supervisor Salud Carbajal, according to the most recent campaign statements for the City Council election. Schwartz has raised $92,000 in her bid to win a spot on the City Council. Much of Schwartz’s support during the last month has come from a variety of unions. Schwartz also received $500 from the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 639; $1,000 from the Peace Officers Research Association of California PAC; and $500 from the Plumbers & Steamfitter’s Local Union #114. She took in $2,000 from the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters PAC. She also received more than $10,000 from police and fire unions — through non-monetary donations. Those group paid for several mailers and other advertising pieces. Candidate Iya Falcone, who already served two terms on the City Counci last decade, received $1,500.00 from the California Real Estate Political Action Committee; $750 from the District Council of Iron Workers; $1,000 from the Districts Council of Plasters and Cement Masons; $500 from the IBEW

Local 952 Political Action Committee. Falcone also received $1,000 from the Peace Officers Research Association of California. The former councilwoman took in $2,000 from the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters Political Action Fund. Falcone also accepted $3,000 from Democratic political activist Betty Stephens and $2,000 from Supervisor Carbajal. Like Schwartz, Falcone received more than $10,000 from the police and fire unions for literature and advertising pieces. Candidate Cathy Murillo raised $75,000. She has less support from unions but did received $2,000 from the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters Political Action Fund and another $2,000 from Supervisor Carbajal. Murillo has dozens of individual donations for $100. Councilman Francisco received a chunk of money from real estate managers, property owners, and retired individuals. He took in $1,500 from the California Real Estate Political Action Committee; $1,000 from the Lincoln Club of Santa Barbara — A Republican club. The councilman also received $2,000 from MazCorp2 Inc; $1,500 from the Santa Barbara Rental Property Association; $1,100 from Jim and Sharon Westby; and; $1,000 from


Richard Berti; and $2,000 from Commercial real estate investor Richard Gunner. Councilman Randy Rowse, owner of the Paradise Café, has raised $75,000 — $40,000 of which gushed in during the last six weeks. He accepted $1,500 from the California Real Estate Political Action Committee; $1,000 from the rental property association; $1,000 from Gunner the investor; $1,000 from Arthur Petersen, an investment banker; $1,500 from the Greater Lodging and Restaurant Association; $2,000 from Berti, and like Francisco, dozens of donations from retired individuals. Councilwoman Michael Self has raised $72,000; During the last filing period, $2,000 game from Gunner; She took in $2,000 from MazCorp2 Inc; $1,500 from the Santa Barbara Rental Property Association; Jim and Sharon Westby also gave her $1,100. She also took in $1,000 from Richard Berti. Sharon Byrne, executive director of the Milpas Community Association, has raised $27,000. Her largest donation came from the California Real Estate Political Action Committee for $1,500. She took in $1,000 from the Peace Officers Research Association of California and $1,000 from Tony Vassallo.

The Daily Sound endorses three candidates who we think can be the most effective in shaping policy. We care less about political affiliation and more about how a candidate approaches problems and their willingness to understand and reach solutions near the middle.

DEBORAH SCHWARTZ We like that Schwartz understands that her role is to not be a seat warmer, or play it safe because she’s worried about her next political move.

SHARON BYRNE There’s a Democratic slate running on the left, and a conservative Republican slate running on the right, but there’s only one person running a campaign right down the middle — that’s Sharon Byrne

DALE FRANCISCO An advocate for historic preservation, Francisco speaks for a part of Santa Barbara that doesn’t want to see the city change or lose its uniqueness and charm.

Foodbank calls for Turkeys

DAILY SOUND / Victor Maccharoli

Foodbank of Santa Barbara County Intern volunteer Selina Pino stacks crates of oranges in this April 2011 Daily Sound file photo. The foodbank is in need of donated turkeys for the Thanksgiving holiday.



The Santa Barbara County Foodbank has officially announced its annual Thanksgiving Turkey Drive, and with the economy the way it is, is requesting more birds than in years past. After buying 2,000 turkeys with its own funds, the Foodbank expects a need for 2,000 additional birds.

A total of 4,000 turkeys, Foodbank representatives said, would go a long way toward feeding those in need. “Without the turkey drive, many families will go without a healthy meal this holiday season,� said Erik Talkin, the executive director of the Foodbank. According to the Foodbank, about a quarter of the county’s residents need the organization’s services.

Through November 18, those more fortunate can donate a turkey at the Foodbank’s centers at 4554 Hollister Avenue in Santa Barbara and at 490 West Foster Road in Santa Maria. Those centers are open Monday-Friday from 7 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Turkeys can also be dropped off at those locations on Saturday, November See TURKEYS, page 9

Surviving the day: How women do it

“Nikki Turner Presents Street Chronicles: A Womanʼs Work,” edited by Nikki Turner. c.2011, Ballantine Books. $14.00 / $16.00 Canada. 242 pages


A mere eight-hour day has been a dream of yours for years. Just eight hours of work? That would be heaven. As it is, you hit the floor running when the alarm clock goes off and you don’t stop until you flop into bed at night. An eighteen hour workday is more like it for you but you’re a woman and you can handle it. If you can’t, well, four authors tell you how to do it in the new book “Nikki Turner Presents Street Chronicles: A Woman’s Work.” You’ll learn how to handle things – but you might not like how it goes down. All her life, Melissa James wanted nothing more than to be a famous R&B singer. At age sixteen, she defied her parents, joined an R&B girl-group, began sleeping with her boyfriend, and was surprised when Reverend and Mrs. James kicked their disobedient daughter out of the house. But in “Dying to Be a Star,” by Keisha Starr, Melissa never learns patience or control until the time comes when fame is almost fatal. Mama Bev Woods was beloved in her neighborhood. She was an honorary grandmother to many, and mother to Aisha, Kayla, and Terry. So when Mama Bev was beaten to death by three thugs looking for drugs, it was only a matter of time before there’d be revenge – especially since Kayla was a “hood legend” and girlfriend of the man who currently ruled the streets. But in “Money, Stilettos, and Disrespect” by Tysha, the revenge came from an unlikely source. Madame C ran her brothel with an iron fist, promising her girls that if they worked hard, she would set them up after they “retired.” But because gorgeous Abie brought home more money and more new recruits, there was no way she’d be let out of her contract. In “Southern Girls’ Escort Service” by Lakesa Cox, Abie was going to quit The Life, do or die. And if your man was unable to run his business, would you run it for him? In “Ms. G-

Stacks” by Monique S. Hall, that’s what Taylor Dixon did. And she did it with brains, beauty, and a nine-millimeter Glock. Like other books in the Street Chronicles series, hip-hop author Nikki Turner pulled together a few writer gal-pals to create this anthology. When you start it, hang on to your seat – but be warned. Harsh, raw, nasty, violent, hot as flame, and oh-so-fun, “Street Chronicles: A Woman’s Work” is escapist literature at its’ finest. But, while the characters here are mostly easy to like (and are surely easy to sympathize with), I thought the violence in this book was sometimes unnecessarily gruesome and possibly stomach-turning. That can tend to distract from the story – and yet, these novellas are set in the streets, which you know ain’t gonna be pretty… If you can cringe past the brutality of this book, I think you’ll find a good way to spend a couple afternoons. Keep that in mind and “Street Chronicles: A Woman’s Work” will be a dream.

Volatile Oakland faces general strike today NEWS

OAKLAND(Reuters) — After Oakland emerged as a new center for the Occupy Wall Street movement — largely because an Iraq war veteran was seriously injured in a clash with police — local protest leaders decided on a tactic with a storied history in the city: a general strike. The strike, scheduled for Wednesday, aims to disrupt commerce, with a special focus on banks and other symbols of corporate America. Protesters will also try to shut the city's port, one of the nation's largest, in the late afternoon. Local labor leaders, although generally sympathetic to the Occupy movement, say their contracts prohibit them from proclaiming an official strike. City officials say government offices are scheduled to be open; it's unclear whether many businesses will heed the call to close down for the day. Craig Merrilees, spokesman for the International Longshoreman Worker's Union, said workers will be on the job at the Port of Oakland. The ILWU is "encouraging members to participate before work, after work, at lunch and during breaks," he said on Tuesday. Still, the tense relationship between protesters and police, rooted in a series of violent political demonstrations stretching back a decade, has left the city on edge. Images of tear gas wafting through down-

town streets beamed around the world last week after the city dispersed protesters who were trying to reoccupy a makeshift camp near City Hall. Scott Olsen, a 24-year-old former U.S. Marine who had served two tours in Iraq, was struck in the head during the protests and became a rallying cry for the Occupy Wall Street movement nationwide. He remains in hospital with a brain injury, after his condition was upgraded to fair from serious. Yet many in Oakland believe it is no accident that street violence has thrust the city into the national spotlight, given a recent history of erratic responses to large demonstrations and a demoralized police department that has a fractious relationship with City Hall. "This is sort of a perfect storm of dysfunction," Oakland Councilwoman Patricia Kernighan told Reuters this week, acknowledging that she and her fellow elected officials bore some of the blame. In April 2003, at an anti-war protest at the Port of Oakland, police fired beanbag rounds, wooden dowel bullets and other crowd-control ammunition, injuring protesters and longshoremen going to work. The New York Times at the time said the clash was "the most violent between protesters and the authorities anywhere in the country since the start of the war in Iraq." than 10 million pounds of food to more than 100,000 of the county’s in-need residents.

past uncertainty,displayed graphs that showing that travel demand had a correlation to corporate profit. He reported that surveys have shown the top reason given for staying home during vacation is lack of money. Americans will travel if they have the means. Baltin said that represents a change in attitude from 30 years ago. “The U.S. joined the developing world in saying travel is not a privilege, it’s a right,” Baltin said. The Conference and Visitors Bureau’s website got a sterling review from keynote speaker David Bratton, founder of Destination Analysts.

In a study, Bratton found that out of every 1,000 unique visitors to the website, 55 decided to come to Santa Barbara as a direct result of having been to the webpage. In contrast, he said the average number for cities in another study amounted to 34 out of every 1,000 being won over by the site. In raw numbers that amounts to bringing $14 million extra. Janega-Dykes credits the Bureau’s marketing that directs people to the website. She said the website shows off Santa Barbara’s attractions and diversity while providing useful information for potential visitors. “The results of the website [Return on Investment] study seem to indicate that,” Janega-Dykes said.

HOROSCOPES by Eugenia Last

Happy Birthday: Anxiety will strike if you are mentally or physically aggressive. Use your energy wisely and make every move count. By remembering past experiences and lessons, you may be able to avoid a dispute that can end in disaster. Nurture your partnerships, compromise if necessary, but most of all be true to you. Your numbers are 5, 9, 14, 24, 28, 33, 49.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Don't be too proud to accept help. You must not let someone you love cost you. Keeping the peace does not mean paying for someone else's mistake. Offer suggestions, but don't promise the impossible. It's time for a personal change. 2 stars

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Put your heart into whatever you do. A partnership will bring good results. Sharing responsibilities will help you finish what needs to be done. Aggressive behavior will be taken the wrong way. Use your energy to get things done, rather than argue. 5 stars GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Taking on too much will be your downfall. Concentrate on what's most important. What you learn now will help you in the future. A new perspective on what you have to offer and how you can create demand for a service will pay off. 5 stars

CANCER (June 21-July 22): You'll be tempted to take a risk. Impulsiveness will cause stress and lead to problems with someone you deal with daily. Social networking will be fun, but don't expect to get the whole truth from someone that interests you. 3 stars

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Welcome change, but make sure your motives are honorable. Don't run away from controversy or move on when you should be facing problems head-on. Emotions will be difficult to control, but the truth will tell you how to proceed. 3 stars

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You don't need to use force. You will get what you want by showing interest in others. Altering your image or the way you present what you have to offer will lead to compliments and Easy Sudoku Puzzles, Book 3

Olson, the goal was to “try to find a nice little spot,” where they could provide “some of the café experience we had in Europe.” About transitioning from the life of a professional athlete into a coffee retailer, Olson says that being a cyclist “wasn’t your typical job, but we had the passion and trained hard and did everything we could to be the best.” “We took that same mentality into this business,” he added. “If you have passion, if you put the time and effort into it, you can do a good job.” In addition to independently studying the coffee business, Anderson and Olson attended the American Barista & Coffee School in Portland Oregon. For about the past year, Handlebar’s coffee was roasted in a garage, and sales were done via a website (, as well as in person at Southern California cycling events. As the store gets ready to launch, “Hercules,” Anderson’s nickname for their 25-pound capacity Probat coffee roaster, now sits in the front of their store. “It’s pretty small; made for cafes,” Olson said. Even so, it’s an impressive piece of machinery; a dial-and-switch-laden



FROM PAGE 7 dog as anything less than WHO, but my fish could probably be a THAT.” Fogarty’s flippancy about her fish notwithstanding, many of us are simply seething about syntax as it relates to our four-legged friends. For instance, In Defense of Animals, an animal rights organization based in Mill Valley, CA, wants to elevate the status of animals by changing our everyday lexicon from animal ‘owner’ to animal ‘guardian.’ “Animals were long recognized in legal terms as mere commodities or property, not as individual beings, and often their exploitation and abuse was ignored, rationalized and even justified,” states the IDA Web site. In response, Elliot Katz, a veterinarian and founder of IDA, created The Guardian Campaign in 1999 as a “nationwide platform to reflect growing public support for a redefined public standard of

machine that makes it clear the “roasters” part of the shop’s name is not just for effect. Now, Handle Coffee Roasters can roast in the store, for the store. The coffee, which Anderson and Olson create in mostly medium or lighter roasts, will be available in 12-oz. bags of whole beans for customers to purchase. Coffee consumed at the coffee bar will be brewed in one of two ways. Espresso shots—the backbone of drinks such as lattes, cappuccinos, and Americanos— will be pulled on a double-boiler, three group La Marzocco FB 80. The “regular” coffee will be anything but, as it will be made via press pot rather than an auto drip machine. In addition to coffee, Handlebar will sell tea, chocolate (from local company 24 Blackbirds), and kombucha. While Olson says Handlebar will have a limited food menu, he points to the abundance of “great surrounding businesses” in the area, and says that Handlebar’s goal is to complement them rather than compete. The space seems significantly larger once you’re inside. Olson and Anderson were able to install three sets of double glass doors against the courtyard side of the space; the result offers a bevy of natural lighting. It adds to the homey-yet-sophisticated feel of the shop, which is adorned with colorful (yet understated) signage,

relating to animals.” In other words, Dr. Katz wants everyone to realize that animals deserve more respect than, say, a toaster or a TV. I support any movement that seeks to enhance the deep, symbiotic relationship we share with cats, dogs, and other animal companions. That’s why I joined Dr. Katz when he asked the Santa Barbara City Council several years ago to add ‘animal guardian’ to the city’s animalrelated ordinances. While our efforts failed locally, The Guardian Campaign caught on in many other cities and states such as Boulder, CO (2000), the state of Rhode Island, West Hollywood, and Berkeley, CA (2001), Marin County, CA (all 28 cities) and San Francisco, CA (2003), Santa Clara County, CA (2006), and San Jose, CA (2007). To date, more than 5 million Americans and Canadians have declared themselves ‘Animal Guardians.’ (What do you say, Santa Barbara—shall we give it another try?) Like most of you, I’m sometimes
