The Royal Ball Partying with Pride

P

acific Pride Foundation (PPF) has again partnered with Merryl Brown Events to deliver its 2019 gala, which will be held at the Rosewood Miramar Beach. Limited to 400 guests, this Royal Ball is the first major fundraising event at this stunning new resort. Because planning and production on the event are so significant, PPF presents the event only every other year, with full license to dazzle. Co-chaired by Lynn Brown and Justine Roddick, the Royal Ball is in its sixth year, and once again promises a unique, regal experience. Merryl Brown gave me some inside information on her vision of the event. “Our theme this year,” she says, “is Platinum Palace. It will be elegant and chic, with décor primarily in platinum, with elements of muted gold, and ivory floral and masses of silver.” Ms Brown will be working closely with Theoni Collection, which has donated all the décor. Attire is black tie, coat, and tails, or regal silver, gold, or glimmering attire. Diamonds, jewels, crowns, and/or tiaras, are strongly encouraged. High-energy dance music will keep the party moving with DJ Alex Merrell, who has provided party soundtracks for celebrity clients such as Miley Cyrus, Leona Lewis, Selena Gomez, and others. Additional entertainment includes an

Daphne Moore celebrates Easter with Dinah and Ricardo Calderon (photo by Kevin Speer)

by Richard Mineards

Richard covered the Royal Family for Britain’s Daily Mirror and Daily Mail, and was an editor on New York Magazine. He was also a national anchor on CBS, a commentator on ABC Network News, gossip on The Joan Rivers Show and Geraldo Rivera, host on E! TV, a correspondent on the syndicated show Extra, a commentator on the KTLA Morning News and Entertainment Tonight. He moved to Montecito 12 years ago.

Easter by the Sea

I

t was an eggs-cellent and eggs-travagant weekend as two of our rarefied enclave’s toniest hostelries, the Four Seasons Biltmore and the Rosewood Miramar, hosted Easter events for the youngsters in our Eden by the Beach. More than 700 parents and children turned up at Beanie Baby billionaire Ty Warner’s hotel where two Easter eggs hunts were staged on the impeccably manicured lawns, with six lucky winners finding golden eggs that won them a mountain of Beanie Baby products and Amazon gift certificates. The event, which has been held for more than 25 years, also had miniature pony rides for children, a caricature artist and, clearly the most popular, an enclosure for Easter rabbits, some fully grown, others just a few

weeks old. “It’s so much fun watching the children having a really good time,” enthused Biltmore manager Karen Earp, as William and Barbara Tomicki, Coral Casino manager Kevin Speer, David Bolton, and Ricardo and Dinah Calderon joined in the fun and frolics emceed by Drew Wakefield. Just a tiara’s toss or two down the coast from Butterfly Beach, Los Angeles developer Rick Caruso’s newly opened Miramar was positively heaving with moms, dads, and kids as it also hosted two Easter eggs hunts near the 16-acre, 495-foot oceanfront property’s Great Lawn. “It has been a complete sell-out,” enthused manager Sean Carney.

Archie’s Last Days

I

just had a neighbor say... “Why would you let them print this (“The Last Days of Archie McLaren,” MJ # 25/15)?” My answer even surprised me. Archie wanted this story told so dying people had a choice. He actually requested me to find someone just weeks before he died. So back in late April 2018 I had an interview with a local paper and just before we went to print it was pulled due to its complicated story nature. I simply forgot about Archie’s request until I met Jim (James Buckley) at a book launch in Santa Barbara. I always knew it would take a bold writer/paper to show the world Mr. McLaren’s fearlessness. I am so proud of what he wrote that I could yell from the rooftops of Avila Beach! Bev Aho Avila Beach

I really liked your story about Archie McLaren. I didn’t know how the end came for him and like most of his “brothers,” was just sad that he had departed. But now reading your piece filled in the blanks. It only seems natural that Archie would set his departure date and time although I wonder what 3:30 pm represented to him. Arthur von Wiesenberger Santa Barbara (Editor’s note: It’s a question I should have asked before putting that article to bed, but I have since contacted Bev Aho, who tells me, “Archie always used the number thirty-three in his life. It was always his paddle number at an auction.” She says that Archie regarded the number 33 as sacred geometry. “He discovered it while studying The 33rd Degree of Masons, she adds. “All the old buildings were built to this theory and Archie really understood it well. Yet, he was not a Mason.” Archie always looked for the magic of how life was created and how secrets were kept on energy around the world. Archie chose to die at 3:30 in the afternoon of February 20, 2018 because of that nearly lifelong connection with the “magic” of the number 33. – J.B.)

Good, Bad, and Ugly

The president could never be convicted of the crimes of “collusion” or “bagusion” (whatever that is) since both are fake news: neither is a crime.

“Whenever I feel the need to exercise, I lie down until it goes away.” – Paul Terry



Notice that no one cited the “elements” of the mythical “crime” of collusion. The idea of a Special Counsel is based on there being a reasonable suspicion to believe that an actual crime may have been committed: so why was this Special Counsel created? Even at the beginning of the 22 months of investigations there was testimony from one of the 19 lawyers that there never was any “there” there, which is consistent with their shifting, within approximately 60 days, to focusing on “obstruction of justice.” The results support this. Despite impressive numbers of interviews and subpoenas as the mid-term elections approached, their efforts became more aggressive as Manafort was placed in solitary confinement before being tried, and CNN was tipped to film a raid conducted by more agents than were used for Osama Bin Laden to roust 69-year-old cooperative witness Stone from his home and question his wife at gun point as she sat in her negligee in her bed. Compare that with visiting H. Clinton in her home with a room full of her attorneys. What were the results? Zero convictions for collusion. For obstruction, General Flynn pled guilty, but due to delays by the DOJ he has not been sentenced; Papadopoulos pled guilty and served less than two weeks. Manafort was convicted of various charges not related to any campaign. Carter Page was never charged with anything. There is a gag order on Corsi. Several Russians were indicted but will never be tried since Mueller will not comply with their discovery requests. So what did 22 months of constant accusations accomplish? This is a difficult question to answer since a related question is: what would have been accomplished if there had been no threats discussed every night by Congressional people, representatives from a former administration, or talking heads, on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC and ABC? Here are some possible areas of impact: the mid-term elections; negotiations with NATO, North Korea, Mexico, Canada, China, the EU and other countries, as each of these must have wondered if stalling would enable them to outlast Trump; many court decisions where judges erroneously cited campaign rhetoric to overturn policies; support from such

Hats Off to Hattie!

by Lynda Millner

Karen Byers, Diane Brighton, and Lily Marx at the Hats Off Luncheon

T

he Lobero Theatre Associates have a winning event every year when they present the Hats Off luncheon in the Loggia Ballroom at the Santa Barbara Biltmore. The members rummage through their closets for those little worn items, a dress hat, dust them off and then tip them to the honored keynote speaker. This year that was author and historian Hattie Beresford, who also writes for the Montecito Journal paper and magazine – The Way It Was. Today she was to tell us stories about the Lobero Theatre. The luncheon began with a meet and greet and a chance to buy raffle tickets. One of the precious items was a pair of pearl and diamond earrings from Silverhorn later won by long time member Hope Kelly. Hope always has one of the best hats because she’s like Dr. Seuss’s Bartholomew Cubbins and the 500 hats. She inherited one hundred from her late mother. We sat down to tables with clusters of roses in “paint cans” in the center. Quite beautiful. The welcome came from president Annie Williams followed by emcee Catherine Remak. She reminded us, “The Lobero is the longest continuously running Theatre in California.” Another bit of news was that the Association has raised over $1 million to add to the Lobero

coffers since it was established in 1972. They have bought a Steinway piano among many other improvements. The next is to raise money for the courtyard to cover it with a sail “roof” during the warm months instead of the hot Moorish tent. Architect Jeff Shelton has donated his time and talent to the project. Joan Crossland told us about Hattie’s latest book, The Way It Was – Santa Barbara Comes of Age. The first thing Hattie did was take her hat off. Jose Lobero came here from Italy and had a saloon at first. But he dreamed of an opera house and it came true. Amazingly his theatre held about 1,200 people while the population of Santa Barbara at the time in the 1870s was only 3,000. The area where the opera house was located was right by China Town. Some of the ladies objected to walking

week to discuss the business, and how it’s evolved since opening in 1989. Back then, the American Heart Association had a heart healthy certification system for restaurants, and the Briners set off on making a healthier version of Mexican food that would earn them the coveted “heart healthy” emblem on their menu. “A representative from the American Heart Association helped us tweak our recipes, and we removed certain oils and fats from our cooking, which we still adhere to today,” Mrs. Briner said. With no lard in the tortillas or the beans, the food has long catered to vegetarians; the eatery is also known for its freshness, with all housemade sauces and salsas. Favorites include enchiladas, pork chili verde, and the chicken soup. The menu has remained mostly the same over the years, and the chefs have, too, with several of them also marking 30 years at the restaurant. “It truly is a family business,” Mr. Briner said, adding that all five of the couple’s children as well as their grandchildren grew up working at the restaurant, and so did the children of many of the longtime chefs. Customers have remained loyal as well, bringing their kids, who then bring their own kids years later. “We see the same families year after year, which is part of what makes this place so special,” Mrs. Briner said. The eatery’s reasonable prices draws customers from all walks of life, and has catered to families since day one, the Briners say. From construction crews to celebrities, the place has a large following of loyal customers who worry that the restaurant won’t stay in business with the evolving look and style of Montecito Country Mart, which has welcomed over a dozen new businesses in the last several years. “We want to be here another thirty years, and we are hopeful that will happen,” Mr. Briner said. Recent updates to the corner space include new flooring and paint, as well as new signage. Mrs. Briner is a 7th generation Santa Barbarian, with many of her older relatives owning shops and restaurants in Montecito and Santa Barbara. “Our

family was the first to have a wedding at the Presidio downtown,” she said, adding: “That’s how long we’ve been here!” Her grandfather’s siblings once owned a juice stand on the road, which was then known as Old Coast Highway; it was one of the few first established restaurants on the road. The Briners, who have been married 51 years, are currently in a month-tomonth lease at the Mart, and are hopeful to negotiate a longer lease. “We feel we are part of the community, and we want to be here,” Mrs. Briner said. A celebration of the anniversary is planned for May. On May 8th, some prices will be rolled back to 1989 prices, and on May 11th, there will be an anniversary celebration as a thank you to customers, from 2-5 pm. A portion of the sales from May 8 through May 11 will benefit the Montecito Firefighters Charitable Foundation. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, seven days a week from 8 am to 9 pm, with an 8 pm close on Sundays. For more information, visit www.littlealexs.com.

Montecito Planning Commission

At a special hearing last week, the Montecito Planning Commission voted to approve a project to restore Hammond’s Meadow, a plan that is eight years in the making. “This is a very significant site and area,” said Pat Saley, who has been heavily involved in the project plans. Hammond’s Meadow is a 2.25-acre portion of a 3.82-acre County-owned parcel located next to the Sea Meadows subdivision, bordered by Eucalyptus Lane to the east, Montecito Shores to the west, and the ocean to the south. In 1985, as part of the Sea Meadows development, it was designated as an open public space; the site is part of the original Chumash settlement, and is considered a sacred site with archeological sensitivity. In 2014, the County entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Channel Islands Restoration, to

people as Speaker Ryan; and time, energy and resources that could have been used constructively. Perhaps as important as who the Special Counsel kept the focus on, is who was able to escape review, until now. The latter stages of the investigation started to uncover more problems on the side of the investigators, a few of which are the falsification of the FISA warrants, spying on a presidential candidate, and obstruction of justice. This has the potential to be the biggest impact of the Special Counsel. Some pundits are citing that Mueller did not “exonerate” Trump from obstruction of justice. The real Attorney General Barr said that it is not the role of prosecutors to “exonerate” anyone. Prosecutors use a binary test of “yes or no” on sufficient evidence to prosecute. Even judges and juries find defendants “guilty” or “not guilty” but do not have the power to find somebody “innocent.” The “good, the bad and the ugly” seem to describe the future. The “good” is the mythical “collusion” is dead. Obstruction of justice requires that justice be obstructed through some act. This country has never made mere thoughts a crime. Smart executives rely on counsel’s advice on whether to take certain actions. The “nasty person” theory is also not a crime. The administration will have more leverage in negotiations. Maybe some actions will arise from the hundreds of pages of the Mueller, not Barr, report, that discuss Russian involvement during the administration of Obama, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, et al. The “bad” appears to include that some will attempt to convert Mueller from savior to villain in one swoop. The “ugly” might (hopefully not) be continued focus by some in Congress and most of the networks on using the same adjectives and verbs to create myths that could influence the 2020 elections.

seem to have much concern about economic inequality. This is a theme Bernie Sanders emphasizes and has a sympathetic ear within the scholarly community. However, when people ponder in depth the ideal distribution of wealth in a country, they actually come to realize that they prefer unequal societies despite appearances to the contrary. Why? Because there is no evidence that people are truly bothered by economic inequality itself. Rather, they are bothered by something that is often muddled with inequality: economic unfairness. The Nature Human Behavior Journal found that, apparently, we are not natural-born socialists. Humans naturally favor fair distributions, not equal ones and that when fairness and equality conflict, people prefer fairness of opportunity not equality of results. Yet, some rage against inequality as such, insisting there is something fundamentally wrong with a nation in which some have so much more than others. They are actually confused about what they really want, which is justice and fairness, not equality. Rather, think about when it is unjust to treat people the same. Are not factors such as boldness, hard work, talent, skill or even luck, ample reason for dissimilarity, or inequality? Teachers constantly deal with these factors when grading students; it is a discriminating moment indeed. That is not to say that extreme economic inequality isn’t troubling, I think it is. But, the cause of this indignation is not that people see inequality as inherently wrong; it is that they see it as a result of unfairness, e.g., getting rich by inventing or making something is fine; getting rich by cheating and/or stealing is not. Something to keep in mind to sharpen political discourse with the scholars among us as you casually mention how important that degree is in this competitive and unequal world. J.W. Burk Santa Barbara

Fairness Versus Inequality

The Prop 30 Squirm

Many of the general public and especially our college communities

Your article (“On Education,” MJ # 25/15), regarding Paul and Jane Orfalea’s contribution to the educa-

tional needs of local children was very positive and uplifting. What a tremendous task they are taking on in a very creative way. It was very encouraging to hear of the results. And, a great model for leveling out educational opportunities for all children. I have a question for our community. My question: what is Proposition 30, pushed by Governor Brown, doing to meet the same needs? Proposition 30 was touted as a temporary tax on the wealthy to improve schools throughout California. It was a seven-year fix. In 2016 we voted to extend this taxation well into the ‘20s. Again, as an educational fix. Within months of its initial passing Governor Brown was bragging of the amount of money that “we have now” going to schools. Which in that article amounted to a third of the money taken in from the tax. Huh? Accountability for that supposed money for the schools should be requested immediately by all of us. Especially in light of what can be done with money per the example of the Orfaleas’ foundation. We the community, voted in money to be used for programs like this, even by voting for more taxes. But, per the next line down on the original prop 30 bill voted in, said it “can be used for other purposes.” Did anyone read that line? When will we stand up to the politicians and question the use versus the proposed (sold to us) use? I think we should right now. On another note re the same article, I believe to be true that some of the “higher-funded schools” don’t take from the state’s school monies, but take from local property taxes. The article could be interpreted that some schools are given more money from the state. To the Orfaleas: thank you for your

Fentanyl Outrage

In January (2019), 254 pounds of Fentanyl was seized at the southern border. In 2017, drug overdoses killed 72,000 people, 200 a day. Why are we not outraged? If Congress won’t help solve the problem of chaos at the border, they are the problem. Their greed for power has destroyed any patriotism they might have had. It is doubtful they ever cared about our country. Unfortunately, a lot of the rot in Congress comes from California. Gretchen Kieding Solvang

The Electoral College

Our Constitution (Article 2, Section 1) clearly says that the President is chosen by the states through the Electoral College and not by overall popular vote. I like the Electoral College (EC) and I believe it “served its purpose” in the 2016 elections. Personal experiences lead me to believe that many intelligent people do not understand the EC and why our Founding Fathers created it. A recent newspaper letter referenced a seminar where half of over 20 younger adults thought the EC was a “place” that should close down. In the 2016 Presidential Election,

5 1/2 Easy Steps to Writing and Delivering Great Speeches

M

ost people are happier being audited by a fiber-deficient IRS agent than speaking in public. They’re even less enthusiastic about writing their own speeches. Sometimes, we have to do both. I can make it easy for you using the following suggestions. 1) Prepare early. The minute the date is set and you know you’ll have a speaking part in the celebration-memorial, start thinking about what you might say. Scribble everything down. There are no wrong answers. 2) Don’t be intimidated. You’re not addressing Congress or the Supreme Court. This isn’t your Harvard entrance essay or Doctoral thesis. You’re not Jimmy Kimmel, or Stephen Colbert, and you won’t be appearing on national TV. Not even on cable. And everybody will be cheering for you. 3) Make lists. Before trying to write sentences for my clients’ speeches, I make lists. Then my lists make lists. I move ideas around and add new ones. As a writer, I know better than to sit down at my desk, thinking I’ll nail something perfectly in the first draft. Instead, as ideas pop into my head, I scribble them on anything I can find, including my favorite green yoga t-shirt, or a jumbo brown egg carton from Trader Joe’s. And rather than feel the panic of having to sit there and finish this speech tonight-tonight-tonight, I make an appointment with myself to write for five minutes a day. Not everybody has a couple of hours each morning, but we all have five minutes – no skipping. I mark the appointment with me in my day planner. And even if the page

is blank when my five minutes are up, I check off that time anyway. I’ve kept my commitment. Maybe tomorrow something good will appear during my writing session. Eventually, it always does. Be assured it’s all there in the hopper, and just needs time, plus gentle coaxing, to pop up. When I get a draft – no matter how scattered it is, I congratulate myself and haul out the candy corn. Rewards for good work go a long way. Psychologists agree that it is the kid in us that does the creative work. So we have to keep that child happy. And all the kids I’ve ever been love candy. 4) Hook ’em with a great opening. You have a captive audience. Don’t lose it by starting with recycled language. You’re not a cliché. Your speech shouldn’t be a collection of them, either. “We are gathered here today…” not so much. In your opening sentence, be clever. Maybe a little funny, too. Not all seemingly solemn occasions have to be approached as serious anymore. If you’re speaking at a memorial service, instead of a sad beginning, you could say, “I’m not going to rush my eulogy because the coroner assured me that Joe will be gone for quite a while.” 5) How long should I speak? Less is more. Keep it short. If you’re the only speaker, three minutes. If you’re sharing the time slot, two. You want to say what’s in your heart; leave your fingerprint in the room, and then, sit down. 5.5) To practice, using your phone, record your speech and listen back. Tweak the speech where necessary. Then re-record, and listen back, until it feels just right. Don’t forget the candy corn when it does. •MJ

formulate a plan for rehab of the site, which is currently infested with tall weeds and gophers. The project includes nonnative vegetation removal, gopher control, soil import and jute netting, erosion control, native planting, temporary irrigation for two years, and ongoing maintenance. The currently established monument, trail, and rock circle will remain. Because of the sensitivity of the site, a number of constraints exist including not being able to dig into the soil, bring heavy equipment on the property, or add a water source. The project is expected to cost $700K, with funding expected to come from foundations, neighbors, and others. The hope is that the site will be self sustaining in five years, and that the access through the property to the beach will not change. Saley has been in coordination with County Parks Department, the Barbereno Chumash, the Sea Meadow HOA, and the California Indian Advisory Committee and has approval from all. Three public meetings on the project were held in 2018; two on site and one at County Parks office. Because there are not substantial changes from the original proposed project in the ‘eighties, the new restoration plan only requires an addendum. For more, visit www.sbcountyplan ning.org.

Carpinteria Home & Garden Tour

A modern farmhouse on Shepard’s Mesa is just one of the five homes on tour this Saturday for Carpinteria Beautiful’s Home & Garden Tour

This Saturday, April 27, five unique homes will be on display in Carpinteria, as Carpinteria Beautiful hosts its annual Home & Garden Tour. From a modern farmhouse on three acres in the foothills to the exquisite “Little Gem” by the Salt Marsh, there is something for everyone, according to committee chair Susan Everett. Visitors will see how one family found room to grow by adding a craftsman-inspired second story to their former tract house. They will also visit a classic Concha Loma home sitting serenely on the edge of Carpinteria Creek, and they’ll be able to catch sight of the surfers from an elegant Rincon Point home once featured in Architectural Digest. “We’re thrilled to be back after last year’s disaster-related cancellation, and we’re tremendously grateful to the generous homeowners who have agreed to open their homes to our visitors,” Everett said. The tour is Carpinteria Beautiful’s main fundraiser, helping to finance on-going work in the community as well as special projects including the tile murals at Linden Plaza, the Millstone Fountain by the Friends of Library Bookstore, the Community Garden fountain, the ping-pong table at the beach, and the dolphin sculpture at Tomol Park, among others. “We’re dedicating this year’s tour to long-time Carpinteria Beautiful member Donnie Nair, who conceived of and led the tour for 20 years before her retirement this year,” Everett said. Tour guests receive a map with locations and descriptions of the five homes. Being a self-guided tour, guests may visit the homes in any order. Docents are available to answer questions and the homeowners are often on site too to welcome guests. Homemade cookies and punch are on offer at one of the homes. Visitors from out of the area are encouraged to spend the day and enjoy lunch and shopping in Carpinteria’s quaint downtown.

Balls

I

sn’t it remarkable that the vast majority of all the games we play involving physical activity are focused upon an object, usually round, which we call a “ball.” It can be small as a marble, or large as a bowling ball, light as a ping-pong ball, or heavy as a “medicine ball,” a sphere, as in billiards, a disk, as in ice-hockey, or an oval, as in American Football. It can be stitched (like a baseball), feathered (badminton), rough-surfaced (tennis) or smooth (lacrosse), leathery (soccer) or rubbery (squash). Then there’s the great variety of methods of moving the ball, from use simply of human feet, hands, heads, and arms (afoot or on animal backs, on land or in water) to all kinds of sticks, bats, mallets, poles, and paddles, for whacking, poking, and otherwise propelling the object. The surfaces employed can vary from soft to hard, grassy to icy, smooth and level, as on a cloth-covered snooker-table, to simply sandy, as in beach volley-ball. They can be confined, like a tennis court, or as broadly extensive as a golf course. And the goals at which these objects are directed range from holes in the ground (golf), upright spaces (soccer, hockey), “hoops” stuck in the ground (croquet), and sticks to be knocked down (cricket), to netted “pockets” in a table (pool), or metal circles, as in basketball. Then there are balls that bounce, balls that just roll, and balls that will not even roll in a straight line (as in lawn-bowling). With all this generally pleasurable activity associated with balls, it is not surprising that our language refers to a lavish dance as a “Ball,” or that, even in slang, enjoying a good time came to be called “having a ball.” And it would be nice to conclude that balls overall have been a blessing to humanity. But then we’d be forgetting that, for nearly a thousand years, thanks to the “blessing” of gunpowder, virtually all ammunition was ball-shaped. Musket balls and cannon balls were the staples of warfare. Even the word “bullet” comes from the French for “little ball.” And cone-shaped bullets didn’t come into use until the 1830s. In terms of destructive power upon people and property, we can only look back nostalgically to the days before explosive weaponry, when a cannon-ball could 25 April – 2 May 2019

at least make a neat hole in a wall, without bringing the whole building down. Looking at balls from a broader perspective (and understanding that they are not always perfectly spherical) we, of course, live on one, spinning in space, and many or most of the celestial objects of which we are aware, beginning with the planets in our own solar system, and the sun around which they revolve, seem to favor that shape. What is it about being a ball which makes that form so popular? Mathematicians and physicists will probably tell you that it is the most efficient way of distributing the substance of a single piece of matter. A sphere (in case you care) is the only three-dimensional configuration in which all points on the surface are equally far from a single point, which we call the center. It is also the shape on which, as navigators on Earth well know, the shortest distance between any two points on the surface is an arc of the circumference – which is why you had better use a globe, rather than a flat map, when planning a flight from New York to Hong Kong. All of this, of course, made or makes little or no difference to the users of golf balls or tennis balls. But it is worthy of note that the whole scientific study of the motion or flight characteristics of projectiles is known as BALListics. And where would we be without all our many kinds of wheels (which are essentially only sliced balls), and the ball-bearings, upon which entire industries depend to keep their machines rolling? With all their importance in our lives, balls have attracted little interest among poets. Edgar Allen Poe came closest, with his celebration of “The Bells.” Inspired by this epic, I offered my own version (in my book, Be A Good Neighbor, And Leave Me Alone.) It is called “The Balls.” I will close with an extract, which is about a tennis match: In the beat, beat, beat, Of the searing summer heat, While the semi-apathetic watchers lean against the walls, Watching balls, balls, balls, balls, balls, balls, balls – Watch the bouncing and the trouncing of the balls.  •MJ

Spirituality Matters by Steven Libowitz “Spirituality Matters” highlights two or three Santa Barbara area spiritual gatherings. Unusual themes and events with that something extra, especially newer ones looking for a boost in attendance, receive special attention. For consideration for inclusion in this column, email slibowitz@yahoo.com.

Playing ‘Games’ to go Deeper

A

uthentic Relating Games (ARG for short) – an entry point into the relational field that I’ve been a part of locally for the better part of five years – went on hiatus more than a year ago when its Santa Barbara founders Simon Darcy and Tamra Rutherford stopped leading the once monthly events. But this Friday the series of short interpersonal experiences that can deepen conversations and quickly create connections are returning to Yoga Soup, courtesy of Damian Gallagher and Jenny Calcoen, locals with extensive experience in personal growth work. “ARG is a modality that can be a way for people to relate to each other on a deeper level than we are used to,” Gallagher explained. “It opens a door to the possibility to go beyond simply having an exchange of information and instead have profound experiences, even with strangers.” Given that many of us were not taught tools to relate to each other in an authentic way, the Games can provide a structure and method to bypass mere formalities and hone in on “what lies beneath,” the more human qualities that connect each of us. “It’s a safe container where you are guided to get to something beyond just speaking about things, perhaps a more emotional level, and, also importantly, in relation to each other in the present moment.” The Games can be as simple as filling in a sentence stem. For example, one of the popular introductory experiences is called “The Noticing Game” and involves two people standing or sitting directly across from each other, making eye contact. One person starts by saying, “Right now, I notice…” and the other, after a pause, responds, “Hearing that, I notice…” Each member of the dyad alternates with a new observation, a present-time experience

that can prove quite revealing given its simplicity. “The Games set a framework where it’s not open-ended, which can be intimidating, and instead the rules and structure provide a feeling of comfort,” said Gallagher, who also facilitates yoga, sound healing, breath work, meditation, and somatic experiences. “That way, people can be revealed, get vulnerable, share true emotions, and express authentic feelings with each other and feel more connected.” Gallagher and Calcoen will take turns in leading various exercises, initially an ice-breaker to create a unified field, followed by a group movement piece with brief interactions, he said. Then the leaders will take a few minutes for participants to “share impact” of the previous game – a tenet of the Authentic Relating practice – before breaking into smaller groups for other games that lead to connection. The perhaps unexpected benefit of participating in the interactive experience of ARG is also a deeper relationship with oneself, Gallagher said. “The Games can help me access my own inner world, which might not always come easily and therefore feels even more vulnerable to me. To be able to reveal that in a safe space is so important, and helps to create deeper connection.” Which is why he’s happy the Games are not only back but that he is serving as co-host. “The experience of facilitating something I already love to do is very fulfilling. It nurtures my own being.” Authentic Relating Games: Connections takes place 7-9:30 pm Friday, April 26, at Yoga Soup. Admission is $18 in advance, or $25 day-of.

Memorializing

Barbara Marx Hubbard, the futurist, author, speaker, and co-founder and president of the Foundation for Conscious Evolution who passed away at age 89 on April 10, had a significant connection to our community, having spent more than a decade dwelling part-time in the Montecito hills beginning with the new millennium and frequently visiting the area before and after. Hubbard, the author of several books on social and planetary evolution, was still very active in her work regarding a potential quantum leap for humanity via integrating emerging scientific, social, and spiritual capacities, including co-creating and participating in the weekly Evolutionary Church every Saturday for more than two years right up to the weekend before her death. While there have been several memorials online and elsewhere in the two weeks since her passing, two more right in are neighborhood have been scheduled. The Association for Global New Thought (AGNT), the Santa Barbara-based organization co-founded by Hubbard in 1997, will be holding a celebration of her life and work at 5 pm on Tuesday day, April 30, at El Capitan Canyon, the sacred indigenous land about 15 miles north of the city, where Hubbard’s family and friends will create enlightened space for a prayer vigil and candle lighting ceremony in her honor. Hubbard’s daughter Suzanne, AGNT leaders, colleagues, and others will speak, while Hubbard herself will appear via video expressing some of her most enduring ideas. The memorial will also be streamed live on Facebook. Visit www.facebook. com/events/1981189195320365. Next month, on Friday, May 17, Ani Ahavah – who used to run a monthly Hubbard-inspired “Love Grid” at the Ayni Gallery – will host a Commemoration of the Life of Barbara Marx Hubbard at Unity of Santa Barbara, where all who have been “touched by the life of this amazing futurist, teacher, luminous soul, and beloved friend are invited to gather and share heartfelt expressions of gratitude for Hubbard’s enormous impact in our local community.” For more information about the 7 to 8:30 pm event, contact Ahavah at (805) 450-2238 or email ani@iamuniverse.com.

Creating Conscious Relationships

interrelating, and co-creative experience to help bring more awareness, curiosity, and openness into our relationships, how we love, and our sexuality.” Love, who is certified by The Tantric Institute as an expert level Love, Sex, and Relationship Coach, splits her time between Santa Barbara and Boulder, Colorado, where her mission includes helping people live from the truth of who they are so that they can experience deeply-connected love, expand their potential and enrich their experience of life, and enjoy “a love life where you don’t have to compromise essential pieces of your authentic nature to make the relationship work.” Participants will learn how to quickly and effectively neutralize conflicts in relationships, and to maximize smooth, loving flow in daily interactions. The 4 pm workshop on Saturday, April 27, at Unity of Santa Barbara, costs $20-$25 and is limited to 45 people. Visit www.eventbrite. com.

Also at Unity

Devotional music duo Jaya Lakshmi & Ananda return to the venue on Friday, April 26, as part of their 8th annual California tour. The singer-songwriters will share a combination of kirtan (call and response singing), bhajan (devotional hymns), and original singer-songwriter compositions in English, Sanskrit, and Gurbani while alternating on guitar, harmonium, keyboard, and bansuri flutes and being joined by Marla Leigh on percussion and flute. Their music is said to channel a powerful blend of modern and ancient soundscapes that touch the heart and invoke a meditative and connected state. Tickets for the 7:30 pm event are $20 in advance, $25 at the door. Visit https://www.facebook. com/events/2335461643155400/

Qigong on the Sand

Many local teachers of the healing and meditative mind-body practice, including the popular Carpinteria practitioner Jessica Kolbe, will be offering free demos and exercises at Carpinteria’s Linden City Beach from 9-11 am on April 27.

Clinton had almost 3 million more popular votes than Trump. Clinton won the California popular vote by over 4 million votes. Simple math indicates that Trump was the total popular vote winner in the remaining 49 states. So, California “determined” the national popular vote victory for Clinton. All of California’s 55 electoral votes went to Clinton. However, Trump won the popular vote in 30 of 50 states, ending up with a 306-232 victory in the EC. In the 2000 Presidential Election, George W. Bush beat Albert Gore 271266 in the EC while losing the overall popular vote. Sparsely populated North Dakota’s 3 electoral votes went to Bush. Had Gore won that state’s popular vote, he would have won 269-268 in the EC. Also, had Gore won the popular vote in his home state, Tennessee (11 electoral votes), he would have won 277-260 in the EC and become president. I haven’t attempted to explain the EC. I am suggesting that before jumping on the liberal bandwagon to get rid of it, one should make an effort to understand the EC and the reasons it was created. Westmont College is a place. The Electoral College is not. I can’t visit it, but I do like it. It’s worth preserving. Sanderson M. Smith, Ed.D.

When the Montecito Journal and other publications give locations of marijuana dispensaries, it would be helpful to include if they are wheelchair accessible. Not all are. Patients have rights under Prop. 215 to obtain pot under the Compassionate Use Act. Until there are better protections for frail elderly and people with disabilities please remind your readers to check out delivery services before inviting strangers into your homes. Should marijuana be taxed if it is used for medical reasons with a doctor’s recommendation? Are growers and sellers responsible for taxes if they are operating as non-profits? California has a history of tensions over land use in the past. Keeping users safe should be a major concern for all. Karen Friedman Montecito

Beat,” MJ # 25/14), it was stated that “because the building is owned by the County, land use permits and design review were not required.” If this is true I call Foul! If a County-owned property can be given a design review and building permit based solely on ownership, then what is the purpose of all the extensive and expensive discretionary design reviews and plan reviews that we common folk have to endure? Apparently they must have nothing to do with insuring quality architecture and safe design as advertised. The County and Montecito can look to their neighbor, the City of Santa Barbara to see how it should be done. There, every project is subject to all the same reviews and scrutiny as private property projects, as they should be. Perhaps more details about this by MJ would be helpful.

Remembering Julian

Your article on Julian Nott was beautiful (“He Landed Safely,” MJ # 25/13). Last year at this time, I met with him at his home with a signed book from a friend’s hot air balloon photos and had Julian sign the front cover of the Montecito Journal glossy edition with Julian on the cover. It is now framed over my desk. Bob Evans Santa Barbara (Editor’s note: I have never, ever, moaned over the loss of family or friend as loudly or as often as I have for Julian Nott. Two other losses come close: that of my lifelong friend Charlie Barnes and longtime compatriot Andy Granatelli. Life is a tough game and the longer one plays the more one loses I guess, but still, Julian had big, exciting, plans and much more life to live; that he left us accidentally is difficult to accept. – J.B.)  •MJ

The concert kicked off with Beethoven’s Sonata No. 4 in A minor, with other works by Debussy, a most entertaining solo with Coll’s Hyperlude No. 5 and Ysaye’s Sonata No. 6 in E major. The show wrapped with Brahms sonata No. 2 in A major, Debussy’s L’Isle joyeuse, and John Adams Road Movies. He can’t come back soon enough... Legal Immigrant Multi-talented Scottish actor and performer Alan Cumming brought his highly entertaining show Legal Immigrant to the sold-out Granada, part of the popular UCSB Arts & Lectures program. The almost two-hour intermission-free performance, with a four-member backup band, was a meditation on his ten years as an American citizen and the experiences and change he has witnessed during his time living in the U.S. With a set list that included songs made famous by Adele, Peggy Lee, and Edith Piaf and composers as diverse as Sondheim and Schubert,

at the Lobero with its contemporary dance program Ballroom by artistic directors Rodney Gustafson and William Soleau. The seven pieces of the entertaining show with New York choreographer Soleau’s 2002 work “Five” by Gershwin, and two world premieres, “Stand By Me” by Kassandra Taylor Newberry, featuring the music of the late Otis Redding, and Soleau’s Misty, with works by the late Ella Fitzgerald, stood out, as well as Laurie Eisenhower’s 2017 work “Bubbles,” with music of the late dance band king Lawrence Welk. The show wrapped with Soleau’s 1997 work “Nuevo Tango” featuring ten dancers with wooden stools showing their talents. Kudos to Sammy Jelinek for her dramatic lighting design. Feast on Easter Our tony town’s Rescue Mission hosted its annual Easter Feast for our community’s more impoverished residents and for the 12th year I volunteered as a waiter.

The hefty gift from Montecito’s most famous resident will be split between the Hispanic Federation for its disaster relief and the Flamboyan Arts Fund, dedicated to fostering the island’s rich heritage of arts, culture and creative development. Oprah, 65, says she was inspired by the efforts of Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who took his hit show to the island for a limited 23-performance run in January. “I wanted to join in the rehabilitation efforts of an island so rich in culture, Rescue Mission staff members Stan Casares, Alana Chessmar, Leticia Nicholson, and Kevin Carroll (photo by Dale Weber)

After the Flames I am sure, like me, we were all affected seeing the TV coverage of the fire that enveloped France’s iconic 850-year-old Notre Dame Cathedral. Luckily the historic Gothic building’s three medieval stained glass rose windows all survived and many of its priceless religious artifacts, including the crown of thorns supposedly worn by Christ during his crucifixion, were saved. It was particularly touching to see thousands of Parisians lining the banks of the Seine praying as they viewed the conflagration enveloping their beloved building, which I have visited many times over the years. Now, with more than $1,124,750,000 in donations coming in from all corners of the globe, including huge financial commitments of $155 million from French fashion mogul Francois-Henri Pinault, and $230 million from Louis Vuitton tycoon Bernard Arnault, it is to be hoped the Ile de la Cite landmark will rise from the flames like the proverbial Phoenix, with French president Emmanuel Macron vowing to rebuild within five years. Richard Retires On a personal note, I mark the retirement of an old friend, New York Post gossip king Richard Johnson, longtime editor of the tabloid’s legendary Page Six. Richard joined the Rupert Murdoch publication at the same time I started as gossip columnist at the Aussie publisher’s Star magazine in 1978 on my move from London. Page Six became a must-read column chronicling the dirty laundry of celebrities and the power elite. Richard, who I went on a number of press junkets with, including Morocco, Iceland, Brazil, Japan, Antigua, and Uruguay, spent almost his entire career at the Post, with brief detours with the New York Daily News and New York Observer in the early 90s. His presence will be missed, but I eagerly await an eye-opening autobiography in due course... Sightings: Actor Alan Alda checking out Pierre Lafond...

Celluloid Heroes: Tierney Tackles Soundtracks

J

azz singer Tierney Sutton has such a clear, compelling, and communicative voice, it’s surprising to learn that early on in the 20-plusyear career of the band that carries her name, Sutton was a reluctant focal (and vocal) point for the group. “When I came out to L.A., my heroes were Bobby McFerrin, Al Jarreau, Flora Purim – the instrumental kind of singers, not the ones who specialized in the lyrics,” the Wisconsin native recalled. “So when the group got together, I was thinking, ‘Yeah, OK, I’m the singer, but I’m really just another instrument in the band.’” That initial impulse is still an element of the Tierney Sutton Band’s (TSB) philosophy – indeed, that Sutton’s flexibility and penchant for sound shaping with her singing along with the crack quartet is one of the band’s signatures. But Sutton soon eventually realized that the TSB’s arrangements, however musical, have always served the lyric. “The music never obfuscates the story,” she explained. “Everything has to make sense and it starts with the words. Now, that sensibility is thoroughly baked into the cake.” All of which makes it even more interesting that Sutton & Co.’s latest project is ScreenPlay, featuring songs from the first century of American cinema, perhaps somewhat ironically as movie music is often intended to be unobtrusive, or at least not call attention to itself. But there is reason in the choice, as after tribute albums to singer-songwriters Joni Mitchell and Sting, the Tierney Sutton Band was looking to return to standards idiom. That, and the band’s penchant for painting pictures with its approach. “The way the band arranges, how we go about things, has always had a kind of cinematic approach,” she explained. “There’s almost always a through-story, a narrative, to the song. The musical underpinning of TSB arrangement is ‘What’s the story and how can the music underscore it?’ Plus, we’ve been in L.A. for all of our existence, and everyone has had a hand in doing work for film.” Most recently, it was as a band, as Clint Eastwood hired Sutton and the group to score his 2016 film Sully, a project that came together very quickly and proved popular among both audiences and the musicians. But if Eastwood was the entry point, a more local set of cinematic heroes provided the actual avenue: 25 April – 2 May 2019

Alan and Marilyn Bergman, the three-time Academy Award winning lyricists who live in Santa Barbara and have collaborated with Sutton for years. Bergman songs provide the first set of five suites that comprise the album – followed by Technicolor, Golden Age, Montage, and music from Sully – the bulk of which will make up the repertoire when the TSB returns to the Lobero on Monday night, April 29. The 93-year-old Alan Bergman even joins Sutton for a sublime vocal duet on “How Do You Keep the Music Playing?” Alongside such favorites as “The Windmills of Your Mind,” “On a Clear Day,” and “Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend” – all of which feature unusual, often percussion or bass-led arrangements – the album takes a couple of decided left turns, first with Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Sounds of Silence” and much more so via two tracks from Grease: “Hopelessly Devoted To You” and “You’re The One That I Want.” “When [pianist] Christian [Jacob] suggested them, you could have

knocked me over with a feather,” Sutton said with a laugh. “But then he wrote these glorious arrangements, and I thought, ‘Wow, it’s very cool to go back and have a more sophisticated way to look at those songs I grew up with.’” Also off the beaten track is Kevin Axt’s arrangement for “If I Only Had a Brain,” largely featuring only his bass and Sutton’s vocals on The Wizard of Oz track. So much so that you can hear the band members laughing at the end of the recording. “I wanted to do something groovy with it and this turned out to be a lot of fun,” she explained. “So when we laughed, we decided to just leave it in.” Meanwhile, fans of the band’s instrumental interplay need not fear Sutton’s acceptance of herself as the singer. While the new arrangements are exacting, there is still a lot of room for improvisation from everyone on the stage, she said. “It’s very

through it, but others didn’t seem to mind the scent of opium that wafted from the shops. One of the entertainments was the sextet of dancing Floradoras. They were all a “tall” statuesque 5 ft. 4 in. and weighed 130 pounds. One of the coups the Lobero had was giving the play Beggar on Horseback while it was still playing on Broadway. That’s unheard of and still is today. As the theatre deteriorated, it was now after World War I and the city wanted something to bring people to town. In the 1920s they decided to build a new theatre and commissioned George Washington Smith and Lutah Maria Riggs as architects. When it was finished in 1924, a Fiesta was planned to celebrate and draw tourists. It is almost the 100th anniversa-

There’s a new walking tour in town! It’s a tour of the Funk Zone and it’s free. If it’s too good to be true, this one is true. This is all because John Ummel took walking tours in Europe so when he came to Santa Barbara, he went to the city fathers to suggest we have one of the waterfront area and now the Funk Zone. They suggested that he do it, so he did. I went on the Waterfront tour (two hours) some time ago and just the other day took the brand new Funk Zone walk (90 minutes). John spends many hours in research. He said, “You can’t go to the library and check out a book on the Funk Zone. I searched through old magazines and newspapers, as well as conducting interviews. I reviewed nearly all the address files at the Building Department for the ten square block area to find out what was previously here. It was also hard to find old photos because this part of town was ignored. It took him six months to locate an old photo of the Weber Bakery building

(the first sliced bread) once on Mason Street. He credits John Woodward, who has the largest collection of old Santa Barbara photos. Also John Fritche, who is an expert on local aviation history. The Funk Zone tour combines the art, food, beer, and wine scene along with the historical component. Historically this has been somewhat of a slum with cheap rents especially after WWII. There were also many gas stations and car dealers. The Oscar Meyer wiener truck was made here as well as world famous Channel Island surfboards. The last house to sell in this area was held onto by a little old lady until the offer went over $2 million. Not too shabby! One piece of trivia I found the most fascinating is why there is no graffiti on the murals on several buildings. Turns out there is some code of honor where one artist shouldn’t spoil another’s work. 25 April – 2 May 2019

There are 12 stops on the tour, all equally fascinating. John especially likes the Lockheed aircraft story, the grape growing history of Santa Barbara and the story behind the old and new Hotel California. I highly recommend the tour and at the end John will give you the only map of the Funk Zone. He had it illustrated and printed.

Miller Time, 2019 Style

Stephanie Havey, who is directing Opera Santa Barbara’s season-ending production of The Crucible, has long been interested in working on the adaptation of the Arthur Miller work that was written during the McCarthy Era in the 1950s ostensibly about the Salem Witch Trials. But recent political and sociological events have made the message even more relevant. “It’s amazing how timeless it is,” Havey said earlier this week, a few days before Opera Santa Barbara presents the opera at the Lobero Theatre this Friday night and Sunday afternoon, April 26 and 28. “At the core, the story is really about how fear creates division. But it feels especially prescient right now with what’s happening in Washington, and Trump accusing more and more people of being on a ‘witch hunt.’ Hearing the use of that phrase over and over made it feel even more timely. But it’s really just about the idea of how easily we fall into identifying people as The Other and then persecuting them.” Haver talked about how an operatic adaptation and theatrical design help enhance the power of Miller’s now sixdecade-old tale. Q. What is lost or gained in the conversion to opera? A. It was unique adaptation because Miller was involved, and much of the text was taken directly from the play. The love triangle is more heavily featured, and it’s one of the few parts that’s not historically accurate. It exists to show us that the hero of the story is also a flawed character. What stands out to me is that when someone feels flawed or guilty, they believe they no longer have the right to stand up for what’s right. He uses that as an excuse not to speak out. So it’s another message to us that there is no one who is perfect who can represent all of us and make change in the world. It has to be you. Come as you are and stand up for justice. If not you, who will? I’m not sure how much this is your area or responsibility, but how does the music enhance the message of The Crucible beyond the words that Miller wrote? As an opera director, I always look at the score. What is it bringing to the piece that’s new? The composer can drop hints and clues in a key change or tempo change. Those are the things I dig into in the rehearsal hall. What does this mean? What does the moment represent? There’s no correct answer, we explore and experiment… There are very dramatic transitions between the scenes – it’s almost like 

a story is being told in between each scene. So we decided to do all of the scene changes a vista (“in view”) so that the audience is watching it happen and feels part of the story. How else were you able to make this piece more modern, and your own? It’s easy to look at the past and say “We would never do such a thing like the witch trials or the Holocaust. We’d never act this way.” But it happens again throughout history. So I wanted the design to avoid the Puritan style so people wouldn’t separate themselves from the story and instead be able to see themselves…. Our set represents more the emotional life of the town, very pared down and simple so the allegory rings through crystal clear. It’s still a period piece with period costumes, but we’re focused on human interactions and choices people are making, not the furniture. Can opera or theater have much impact in our current short attention span society? My style and mission as director is to always find the message where we can learn from one another,– those are the stories I want to tell. Empathy is the beginning of change, the root of compassion. If you find what you have in common – realize there is no Other – it can change your actions moving forward. That’s why I do theater.

Pacific Pride Foundation has been serving the LGBTQ+ and HIV/AIDS Justine Roddick (photo by Megan Sorel) communities in Santa Barbara County for more than 40 years. In 2017, PPF moved its location in Santa Barbara to 608 Anacapa Street. The new space has been customized, with new resources like a community room for group gatherings and events, workstations for volunteers and counselors, and a fresh, clean, and transparent look and feel. Because of the move, PPF is now a more visible, welcoming, and impactful center for the more than 10,000 clients annually. Mental health has been a focus point for PPF, with 2019 marking the second year of funding through Cottage Hospital’s Behavioral Health Initiative, partnering PPF with Antioch University. PPF’s counseling services have also expanded into Santa Maria, with affordable counseling available in both English and Spanish and a team of seven counselors countywide specializing in LGBTQ+ and HIV/AIDS topics. The majority of PPF’s fundraising is done via The Royal Ball, its biennial event, which provides a significant portion of two years of operation budget for the organization. “We are so grateful for our Royal Ball supporters and our donors yearround,” says Colette Schabram, Pacific Pride Foundation Executive Director. “Together,” she adds, “we are making a real difference in this community.” You can book a Royal Ball box or table at PacificPrideFoundation.org/ RoyalBall or call Jackie VanLingen, Development & Events Manager at (805) 963-3636 x106 for more information.

THURSDAY, APRIL 25 Getting Catty at CST – The Amazing Acro-Cats are a Chicagobased troupe of touring performing house cats who offer a one-of-a-kind, two-hour “purrformance” that – in defiance of the adage that compares an impossible task to “herding cats” – features the talented domesticated felines rolling on balls, riding skateboards, jumping through hoops, and more. The finale is the only allcat band in the world – Tuna and the Rock Cats (who hopefully don’t show off their legs like their human play-on-words counterparts), with a current lineup of Nola on guitar, Asti on drums, Nue on keyboard, Ahi on woodblocks, Albacore on cowbell, Buggles on trumpet, and Oz on saxophone. Yes, you have to feed the kitty, as treats are involved for the notoriously disinterested animals; check out the YouTube videos. Meowww!

laughter. Born David Adkins, Sinbad took his stage name out of admiration of the clever and resourceful fictional character, Sinbad the Sailor, and has had similar success in real life over the decades. Sinbad’s career took off after he appeared on Star Search in the mid1980s, then landed TV roles on The Redd Foxx Show and A Different World before he debuted his own The Sinbad Show in 1993. He had his own HBO specials in the 1990s and a reality TV show Sinbad: It’s Just Family, and, after a fallow period in the 2000s, he was given a new comedy special on Comedy Central called Where U Been in which he dealt with his own tax issues and that a lot of folks online thought he had died. Sinbad’s good humor is what has kept him on an even keel despite his fall from glory, and that shows through in his ongoing stage shows.

THURSDAY, APRIL 25 Of Thi I Sing – Thi Bui was born in Vietnam three months before the end of the war and emigrated to the U.S. in 1978 as part of the “boat people” wave of refugees after the fall of South Vietnam. The now Bay Area-based Bui’s debut graphic memoir, The Best We Could Do, is an intimate portrayal of her family’s journey from war-torn Vietnam to California, an evocative work that both searches for a better future and longs for the past. Viet Thanh Nguyen, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Sympathizer, called the memoir – which employs haunting, poetic writing, and breathtaking art to examine the strength of family, the importance of identity and the meaning of home – “A book to break your heart … and heal it.” The cartoonist comes to Campbell Hall tonight in a free UCSB Reads Event.

FRIDAY, APRIL 26 ‘Heroes’ Journey – In celebration of its 20th anniversary, the Grammy Award-winning Silkroad Ensemble will perform the world premiere of a bold new project, Heroes Take Their Stands, that engages with the social and political turmoil of our time. UCSB Arts & Lectures is the lead commissioner of the evening-length multimedia program that tells the stories of five heroic figures from diverse cultures – including Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Elektra of Greek mythology, and Arjuna of Hindu epic poetry – capturing the drama of the moral borderland between conflicting values, and asking, “What does it mean to take a stand in a moment of moral uncertainty? What does an everyday hero look like? And how can an ordinary person make a difference?” The cycle of stories that spans time, space, and human experience were written by five different composers for the Silkroad Ensemble with instrumentation including kemancheh, shakuhachi, tabla, western strings, pipa, Galician bagpipes, percussion, sheng, and piano. Each composer involved in the project worked with artists in other media, including Bharatanatyam dancer/choreographer Aparna Ramaswamy (with Colin Jacobsen) and puppeteer/filmmaker Hamid Rahmanian (with Kayhan Kalhor). The ensemble performs the evening before a special program with Yo-Yo Ma (see next page), who conceived Silkroad in 1998 in tribute to the historical Silk Road, recognizing in it a model for productive cultural collaboration.

SATURDAY, APRIL 27 Yo-Yo’s Class and Culture – World-renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma will draw on his life as a musician and citizen to explore the role culture can play in helping us to imagine and build a better future in an evening program that follows a presentation in the morning where he will more directly pass on his musical knowledge. At 10 am, the master cellist – who has enjoyed a long and fruitful collaboration with UCSB Arts & Lectures – will lead a Master Class with students from the university on stage at the Granada. Then, come evening, Ma – who conceived Silkroad in 1998 in tribute to the historical Silk Road, recognizing in it a model for productive cultural collaboration (see above) – will discuss the role of culture in creating a strong society, drawing on examples from his own life. Ma’s presentation, titled “Culture, Understanding, and Survival,” is rooted in the belief that at a moment when our world is challenged by the pace of change and the divisions it can cause, culture’s ability to create and share meaning is essential to shaping the next stage in our evolution.

Going by Peter, Paul & Mary, the folk trio’s first album full of folk/protest songs and heavenly harmonies shot to the top of the charts, where it stayed for two years. It was just a few years later that Peter, Paul & Mary performed “If I Had a Hammer” and “Blowin’ in the Wind” at the 1963 March on Washington when Martin Luther King, Jr., delivered his famed “I Have a Dream” speech. Five decades later, the intimate nature of Rubicon Theatre in Ventura reminded Stookey – who had just moved to Ojai – of a number of the small clubs and intimate coffeehouses he had come up in.

Stookey’s solo concerts at Rubicon in 2016 and 2017 were both immediate sell-outs. While his 1967 song “I Dig Rock and Roll Music” was the inspiration and basis for last year’s Rubicon world premiere concert of the same name for which he also wrote an original anthem, “Standing on the Shoulders,” a song that reflects the four-time Grammy Award-winner’s belief in bringing the spiritual into the practice of daily life.

Real Gauchos Downtown – UCSB Arts & Lectures is bringing back Che Malambo, the powerhouse ensemble of Argentine gauchos – the cowboys from which the university borrowed its nickname for its alums and sports teams – for another exhilarating percussive dance and music spectacle. Danced solely by men, the malambo began in the 17th century as competitive duels in skills of agility, strength, and dexterity with fast-paced footwork inspired by the rhythm of galloping horses. French choreographer and former ballet dancer Gilles Brinas – who created the company after being compulsively drawn to the particular rhythms, the haunting characters, and the lonely expressions of the gaucho who spends his life on horseback – directs the all-male Che Malambo, showcasing the precise footwork, rhythmic stomping, drumming of the bombos, and singing and whirling of boleadoras (lassos with stones on the end) in a performance style that would even have the Marlboro Man sitting up and taking notice.

Montecito Heat Index

The Montecito Heat Index: How Hot is Today’s Market?

Michael Phillips is president and principal broker of Phillips Real Estate. He can be reached at 805.969.4569 and info@ MPPRE.net.

30 Heat Index

T

he Montecito Heat Index identifies demand for Montecito single family homes in five price sectors. By measuring buyer demand (signed contracts) rather than sales (closed escrows), we create a forward looking indicator of both market strength and direction rather than sold data which is typically a month or more old. This metric also shows us the price point(s) where value is most recognized by buyers and a forecast of likely properties soon to close escrow. And since real estate activity fluctuates often monthly, today’s Heat Score is compared to this date last year. All data are from the Santa Barbara MLS and are uniformly deemed reliable. Comparing today’s demand to this date last year is sobering. No one needs to be reminded of the conditions on the ground here following the debris flow. The immediate impact upon our community including our real estate market was stunning. The difference between today’s buyer demand and that of a year ago is a notable 113.46% in spite of a potentially dangerous rain season and three municipally ordered evacuations. Very clearly, with very few homes to choose, buyers have come and taken a chance on a community in recovery. As the adjacent chart demonstrates, all price sectors easily exceeded last

year’s numbers except the high-end $5m-and-up estate properties. The $2-3m group is the buyers’ choice, scoring a big 35 compared to last year’s 15. The often difficult $4-5m homes, which had no demand last year, scored a strong 28, and close behind, the $1-2m group scored a 27. Last year there were 23 for sale in this sector, today 15. Year over year, every metric is higher for Montecito. The Median Sales Price is up 6% to $3,049,500 and the Average Sales Price is significantly higher than last year, up 20% at $5,153,079 evidencing strong demand above our median price point. The total number of sales rose just 23% (Hope Ranch sales are down 38%). These strong numbers may not be sustainable. In fact, comparison to an aberrant prior year may be masking a slowing market here in Montecito. Nationally the slowdown is well in place and in California, the

number of sales has been down for ten months in a row. For the past six years, prices have been steadily rising as sellers have been in control and defining both price and terms. This control is beginning to transition to buyers. With asking prices at or near 2006 highs, the California Association of Realtors claims buyers are objecting. And a staggering 30% of California sellers are today choosing to move out of state to more affordable markets, up 10% since 2013. The 2017 enacted Administration’s limit on mortgage interest and property tax deductions impacts virtually all of our market (95% of households nationally will be unaffected), mak-

ing it even more expensive to purchase here. It seems that affordability has become a steeper barrier for too many buyers nearly everywhere. The considered view is that with buyers stepping back from current asking prices, and the inflation threat most likely receding, median sales prices will slightly decline for the near future. Advantage buyers, yet most likely a slow transition. And here the transition will likely be slower than most places. In fact, whether future Montecito buyers, always facing limited inventory and steep prices, will be better able to negotiate future price and terms with our notoriously stubborn sellers remains a legitimate question. •MJ

‘Beyond’ the Boxes

Back in the professional world, Rubicon Theatre is opening Women Beyond Borders, a world premiere play inspired by and loosely based on Lorraine Serena and the group of California-based artists who founded the nonprofit of the same name. Serena and her friends came up with the idea of

box as metaphor – hope chest, treasure chest, womb, coffin, etc. – then replicated a miniature wooden box and sent them to curators and friends in other countries with the goal of encouraging dialogue, collaboration and community among women and honoring creativity. What came back was an expected experience of the universality of women’s experiences throughout the world, the boxes accompanied by artists’ statements as letters, poems, and stories about transcending barriers. The Rubicon premiere of Women Beyond Borders has company members sharing the journey of the organization

Curtain Goes Up

Lights Up! Theatre Company, Santa Barbara’s newest youth theater organization, presents Big Fish as its inaugural professional musical production this weekend. The 2013 Broadway musical – based on Daniel Wallace’s 1998 novel and Tim Burton’s 2003 film, with music and lyrics by Andrew Lippa and book by John August – is a magical realism/relationship story that revolves around Edward Bloom, a larger-thanlife yard-spinning traveling salesman, and his adult son, Will, who wants to know what’s behind his father’s tall tales. Montecito mudslide survivor Lauren Cantin and fellow Teen Star finalist Julia Galloway are among the cast of 26 teens who have been rehearsing and/or working on production for the past six months. Amy Love, who founded Lights Up! after a performance and production career in New York and L.A., directs. The production features dancing elephants, a mermaid, an actor being shot out of a cannon, and a live orchestra. Big Fish previews this Wednesday, April 24, 25 April – 2 May 2019
