Our Election Choices
A
ny reader of this publication probably knows and has known for some
time we are not fans of President Barack Obama. His pre-election
promises of halving the annual budget defcit (he more than doubled
it), putting new legislation up online for at least a week so that voters would be
able to read and comment on proposed bills (Weve got to pass this [Afordable
Health Care Act] so we can fnd out whats in it, said former Speaker of the
House Nancy Pelosi); none of it or anything else has been put online for voters
perusal were just that, empty campaign rhetoric. None of President Obamas
budget proposals have been taken seriously by either member of the two
dominant parties in Congress, and he has made no serious attempt to restrain
government spending. In fact, hes done the opposite, helping add over 17
million new food stamp recipients to the rolls, giving out what are now called
Obama-phones indiscriminately, etcetera. As for the current Vice-President,
Mr. Joe Biden, the less said the better. In light of all that, we wholeheartedly
endorse former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and his running mate,
Paul Ryan, for President and Vice-President. We pray they win, as four more
years of the current drift is a disheartening prospect. Mr. Romney probably
wont help lower the sea levels or heal the planet, but he and Mr. Ryan may,
just may, help begin to steady our badly-listing (to the port side, of course) ship
of state.
The Rest Of The Candidates
U.S. Senator: No preference. Dianne Feinstein is a shoo-in for re-election and
we really dont know much about her Republican opponent, Elizabeth Emken.
U.S. Representative 24
th
District: Abel Maldonado would be a refreshing
change from the current officeholder. Maldonado is about as moderate as
Republicans come these days, so he may appeal to enough crossover voters to
beat the six-term seat holder, Lois Capps.
State Senator 19
th
District: If he doesnt win, this will likely be Mike Stokers
last campaign for public office. He is a good and passionate man who deserves
to win, and he may. Stoker has successfully managed to make the Taxin
Jackson moniker stick to his opponent, Hannah-Beth Jackson. We at the Journal
enjoy Ms Jacksons company from time to time and find her intelligent and
engaging. She is also rabidly partisan and as far as we can tell, really has never
come across a proposed tax she couldnt or wouldnt support.
Santa Barbara Unified School District: Lou Segal is our choice, hands down.
You can vote for three of the four candidates, but we are eager for Mr. Segal to
win, so he is our only candidate. He had the courage to state in his Argument
Against Measure A2012 that There is no plausible reason why teachers are
granted lifetime tenure, are paid based on seniority and are effectively shielded
from any reasonable measures to evaluate their performance. It is a disgrace
that these practices along with an antiquated curriculum are allowed to con-
tinue, while many of our children are graduating our public schools barely able
to write a coherent sentence or perform basic math. Mr. Segal has publicly
called for major reforms in the bureaucracy and within the teachers union. We
strongly support Lou Segal.
Montecito Fire Protection District: You can vote for up to four of the eight listed
candidates, but our choices (via Bob Hazard) are Martha Collins, Gene Sinser,
Susan Keller, and John Abraham (Abe) Powell. My son, MJ Publisher Tim
Buckley, and I are also strongly partial to Mindy Denson. You can only vote for
four, not five, so our advice is to include Gene Sinser and Mindy Denson first,
then choose two of the other three candidates based upon your own knowledge
of them and their likely agenda.
The Propositions
Proposition 30: Forget all the crap about this being a temporary tax, or that
the money collected (some $6 billion a year) will be used to fund education
or anything else. Prop 30 is simply another heavy tax that will allow the gover-
nor and his minions to avoid facing major reforms to the public union pension
system. No on Prop 30.
Proposition 31: On balance, this will begin to remove some of the power the
state legislature has taken from local governments. Its not much, but its a start.
Yes on Prop 31.

Pilgrimage to
Santiago de Compostela
Monte ito
Miscellany
by Richard Mineards
Richard covered the Royal Family for Britains Daily Mirror and Daily Mail before moving to New York
to write for Rupert Murdochs newly launched Star magazine in 1978; Richard later wrote for New York
magazines Intelligencer. He continues to make regular appearances on CBS, ABC, and CNN, and
moved to Montecito five years ago.
P
ilgrimages are nothing new to
Maurice OMahony, pastor
emeritus of Montecitos Our
Lady of Mount Carmel, but his latest
was, shall we say, a most moving
experience.
Having previously visited Rome
and Lourdes in France, Maurice has
just returned from Spain having
trekked on a historical and well worn
pilgrimage path that is more than
500 miles long, stretching across the
Pyrenees from France to Santiago de
Compostela in north western Spain,
believed to be the resting place of St.
James the Great since the 10th century.
Historically it is known as the Way
of James and it is something Ive
always wanted to do, says the ram-
bling reverend. Last year more than
450,000 people of all ages walked
part or all of the route from St. Jean-
Pied-de-Port on the French side of the
border, ending at the city of Santiago.
My brother in Ireland completed
the pilgrimage and I thought it would
be good exercise, as well as the spiri-
tual aspects. I saw a fascinating cross
section of the world when I walked
from Pamplona to Burgos, which is a
distance of 126 miles.
Maurice, a cancer survivor, walked
an average of 14 miles each day, much
of it on footpaths and trails going back
a thousand years.
I went through fields, woods, vine-
yards, and across many rivers and
streams. There was quite a lot of hill
walking at the beginning and every-
body was very helpful in giving direc-
tions, with yellow arrows on many
buildings, trees and rocks on the trail.
It was also a very safe route as attested
by thousands of pilgrims over the
centuries.
You meet so many wonderful and
interesting people, including a French
couple in their sixties with their don-
key carrying their backpacks. Another
great character was a young German
man who was making the pilgrimage
with his black standard poodle named
Einstein!
Maurice stayed at hostels, pensions
and bed and breakfasts en route.
In the late afternoons youd meet
up with fellow pilgrims at one of the
many outdoor cafs and everybody
shared their stories. The reasons were
many and varied, but all had at the
core a spiritual component or founda-
tion.
It takes about thirty-five days to
walk the full distance, but many are
constrained by time like I was, so
walk for a certain number of days and
then catch a train or bus to Santiago
de Compostela to participate in the
pilgrim mass at the magnificent cathe-
dral. When I arrived it was absolutely
packed with pilgrims and tourists.

old pilgrimage route

The mass was said in many languages
and the singing was extremely uplift-
ing.
Maurice spent two days in the city,
which has a population of around
90,000 and is famous for its food reci-
pes, including a Galician octopus dish
called pulpo.
At first I wasnt overly keen, but
eventually succumbed. It was actually
fantastic.
In due course the peripatetic pas-
torwould like to return and complete
walking the route.
Sole searching, indeed...
Imagine That
Former Westmont student, Frances
Forte, has launched an art business
with a difference.
Frances, 20, whose father, Igor, is
network manager at the college, has
started Imagine That, a company
that produces paintings from photos
sent in by customers.
I specialize in portrait painting and
celebrity art, and I thought it would be
fun to create reasonably priced per-
sonalized paintings, she says. We
hand paint any photograph, idea or
request people send us and deliver it
within two weeks.
I came up with the idea one day
when I realized I didnt want to sell
people my own art. I figured that was
what every other artist was trying
to do and I wanted to do something
different. I wanted to make art more
personal for people.
I had previously had requests from
people to paint their favorite musi-
cians, actors and writers, and put two
and two together. People want art that
is personal to them.
The great thing about Imagine That
is that it serves wonderfully as inex-
pensive gifts for birthdays, holidays,
weddings, anniversaries, that sort of
thing.
With the help of an old friend, film
director Nick Tolkien, great-grand-
son of Lord of the Rings author J.R.R.
Tolkien, Frances set up a website and
landed her first orders.
Nick has done everything possible
to help nourish the company and make
it grow, she adds. I have received
great feedback so far, with sixteen
requests in the first few weeks. Theyve
included favorite celebrities to rela-
tives, children and even family pets.
The possibilities really are endless.
Painting is something I really enjoy
and I have found that I enjoy it most
when I am doing it for other people.
Art is always a creative way to show
someone how much you love them.
Just knowing that one day my paint-
ings can be appreciated and enjoyed
in a lot of different places and homes
around the world is enough for me.
With prices from $150 to $315, what
could be nicer?

Words of Wisdom
At the age of 95 most people would
be taking it easy, but Montecito resi-
dent Kirk Douglas reveals he likes
to do nothing more than help others
despite his advanced age,
The veteran actor says being able to
do something positive fills him with a
sense of achievement.
Im always asked, What are the
lessons youve learned from life? To
me, the most important thing is that
a person should always try to help
another person.
My charity, The Douglas
Foundation, recently gave $50 million
to the Motion Picture and Television
Funds retirement home. It made me
feel so good to do that. Helping other
people makes me happy.

Four Years After Tea Fire
And Still Cant Build
M
y property is at the top of
a private access road in
Montecito. I moved there in
December 1962, so am coming up on a
50-year anniversary. I am also coming
up on the four-year anniversary of
losing my home in the Tea Fire and
not yet being able to rebuild and
return home because of Montecito Fire
Districts current approach to enforcing
its code upgrade requirements. The
Tea Fire destroyed 11 of the 13 homes
served by the shared private access
road, locally known as Upper Hyde
Road. Steve McGlothens letter to

#18/42) described the Fire Districts
current approach as appropriate for
building new subdivisions, but not for
rebuilding burned-out family homes.
While he mentioned a fve-million
dollar special property tax assessment
and a multi-million-dollar driveway,
Id like to translate this into more
specifc fgures, both emphasizing
the human dimension of what the
fgures might mean and recognizing
that among owners there are diferent
views of the pros and cons of these
fgures.
Our first go at presenting engineer-
ing designs to the Fire District came
back with a preliminary cost estimate
of $2.4 million for construction costs
plus fees and other costs bringing the
total to $2.8 million. According to the
cost-sharing and conforming agree-
ment all owners signed before having
any figures, individual owners maxi-
mum shares of the $2.8 million ranged
from $34,411 to $666,551 depending
on a propertys distance from East
Mountain Drive. Given the special tax
assessment district, also referred to
as the Mello-Roos District sponsored
by Montecito Fire District, any owner
not able to prepay his or her share
could than pay their assessment over
30 years as an annual special tax lien.
Even the lower tax may represent an
insurmountable financial hardship for
some individuals, especially seniors
on a fixed budget. We can see this in
Marge Gordons concern over the
$48/$45 parcel tax associated Measure
A and B in her letter to the editor
(Time To Pay Back, MJ #18/42).
Owners, working closely with Fire
Chief Chip Hickman and Fire Marshal
Al Gregson, are making a great effort
to reduce costs through a second go
at engineering. Even if this effort is
successful, and we reduce costs by as
much as 50% or more, the costs may
still be too great for some owners. At
the time of the Tea Fire, eight owners,
on six properties, were seniors. Six
of these seniors were in their 80s and
had lived on and legally accessed their
properties over Upper Hyde Road
for around 60 years. They served the
greater community in many ways
over their working life, for example,
as educators, nurses, musicians, and
writers as well as in the military in the
Vietnam and the Second World wars.
There were also several second-gener-
ation families in other homes with the
first generation having passed on.
Owners agreements with Montecito
Fire District (2010) states our indi-
vidual and shared goal and motiva-
tion: to rebuild and resume living on
our properties. This expressed inten-
tion represented all owners, not just
some. The need is for an affordable
road home for all owners. We need
a solution other than a Mello-Roos
tax assessment district that places a
30-year tax lien on our properties,
a tax lien that clouds our titles and
complicates refinancing and sale and
makes obtaining potentially avail-
able grant money for portions of our
rebuilding costs impossible.
For some time now, most of my
personal time, thought, and energy
outside of my job go to finding a way
to make this intention a reality. I place
strong hope in the combined abilities
of three of the candidates endorsed by
the Montecito Journal, Susan Keller,
Abe Powell, and Gene Sinser, to
carefully examine and work towards
a balanced community-focused res-
olution to the complex and sensi-
tive issues around access road code
upgrades following losses in fire and
other disasters.
Sincerely,
Ivana Noell

Wasting Votes
Ive tired of the two major partys
form of the best government that money
can buy and went with the Libertarian
candidate. For the unknowing, one
may also leave any part of his/her
election ballot blank for a None Of
The Above vote.
Lastly, not to discourage handing
in your ballot, but for those who think
their vote means a whole lot, a PolySci
professor I once had said ones vote
doesnt carry any real weight unless
there are 19 or fewer other vote cast-
ers voting on any particular issue or
person.
B. Burned
Montecito
(Editors note: Were not quite sure
what your PolySci professor meant, but
we can be quite confident that a vote for
the Libertarian Party candidate for presi-
dent is surely a wasted vote J.B.)
Weve Suffered Enough
Presidents of both parties enjoy a
honeymoon for a period of time after
their election. Arguably the short-
est on record was that of George W.
Bush in 2000. While honest people can
argue about the shortest, no one can
argue about the longest. There is no
doubt our current president is the ben-
eficiary of the most extended period
of honeymoon bliss in the history of
our Republic.
That charmed period ended dra-
matically on October 3, 2012, the date
of the first presidential debate. It
was during the debate that the view-
ers of all parties saw the president
as the person he really is: someone
who despite all the perks of his posi-
tion couldnt deliver a knockout blow
to his opponent. He could not defend
a failed presidency because he truly
didnt think he had failed.
The reasons for his failure, while
many, can be said quite simply: Barack
Obama has never had to play by the
same rules as everyone else. His entire
life if one of having benefited from
a society that felt a sense of obliga-
tion to ensure his success. Despite the
nobility of the programs that allowed
him to attend the best universities in
the world, and a willing electorate
that wanted to see positive qualities

1 8 November 2012 MONTECITO JOURNAL 11 What other culture could have produced someone like Hemingway and not seen the joke? Gore Vidal
Proposition 32: This will begin to reduce the power of public sector unions and
their unholy alliances with politicians theyve put in their pockets. The list of
public unions that oppose this proposition is enough to vote for it, regardless of
what it proposes to do. A Big Yes on Prop 32.
Proposition 33: Again, just a small step in giving insurance companies the flex-
ibility of adjusting insurance rates based upon some kind of actuarial evidence
rather than being mandated to cover everyone for everything at the same rate.
Insurance companies may be allowed to actually reward safe drivers; imagine
that. Yes on Prop 33.
Proposition 34: We have no preference on this one. There already is effectively
no death penalty in California, and the alternative life in prison without the
possibility of parole we find an abomination. We are in favor of fixed terms,
as even a forty-year sentence has an end and offers the human involved a sliver
of hope that he (or she) can find salvation somewhere near the end of his exis-
tence.
Proposition 35: This seems like governmental over-reach to us, although we
are not in favor of human trafficking. No Preference.
Proposition 36: This seems like a common sense adjustment to the Three
Strikes law that automatically imposes life sentences upon three-time offenders.
It also allows judges to be judges. Yes on Prop 36.
Proposition 37: While it all sounds good, promising exact labeling of geneti-
cally engineered food, what it really does is punish small food producers and
organic farmers while protecting giant food processors. No on Prop 37.
Proposition 38: Just another tax. The key here is the deceptive wording, Funds
used for schools, child care, and preschool, as well as providing savings on state
debt payments There is a whole bunch of other stuff this $10 billion a year
tax is likely to be spent on besides schools. No on Prop 38.
Proposition 39: On balance, it seems fair that out-of-state businesses doing
business in California pay California taxes on the amount of business they do
in this state. Its a little frightening, however, that this proposition mandates the
state to spend half the estimated $1 billion per year this is supposed to bring in,
for the first five years, on energy efficiency projects. Can you say Solyndra?
This should have been a no-brainer, but because of the special provision for
energy efficiency projects (such as high-speed rail?), we say voters should
wait for a clean proposition that only addresses the tax inequity. No on Prop
39.
Proposition 40: Whether state senate districts are drawn by a Citizens
Redistricting Commission or are adjusted by officials supervised by the
California Supreme Court seems a minor point. We take no position on Prop 40.
The Measures
Measure A2012: This proposes a $45 annual secondary parcel tax for four
years to help pay for ongoing academic (math, science, technology, music, arts,
foreign language and theater) subjects in the Santa Barbara Unified School
District. This Measure is another back door way of undermining Prop 13, so
we remain extremely wary. However, as weve learned over the years, pub-
lic sector unions (teachers unions in this case) will do anything to keep their
unsustainable benefits, so we reluctantly support this Measure, realizing that at
the moment the unions have the upper hand and the only people that would
feel the negative effect of a No vote would be the students. The oft-quoted no
funds for administrator salaries or benefits is something of an inside joke, as
school administrators will simply use other monies for those purposes. A reluc-
tant Yes on Measure A2012.
Measure F2012: Dont even think about this one. The Montecito Fire Protection
District needs to be drawn into the 21
st
century. Its three-man board is an anach-
ronism that no longer works. A big Yes on Measure F2012!

Beautification Day Winners
Village Beat
by Kelly Mahan


T
his Saturday, November 3,
Montecito Association hosts
the 27th annual Beautifcation
Day at the Village Green; the event
is expected to bring out droves of
Montecito residents and school
children, who will select routes and
then be supplied with plastic gloves
and trash bags with which to pick up
garbage along streets, beaches and
trails in Montecito.
The morning begins at 9 am, with
route selection and a light breakfast
provided by Montecito Country Club.
After the litter pick-up, about 11:15 am,
participants will reconvene to cele-
brate Citizen of the Year, Bill Palladini.
Bill, a member of the Montecito Board
of Architectural Review, and a for-
mer president and Land Use Chair of
Montecito Association, has a lengthy
list of community involvements.
This year Beautification chair
Mindy Denson and her commit-
tee, Elisa Atwill, Darlene Bierig,
Helen Buckley, Caryl Crahan,
LeAnn Madden, Dana and Andrea
Newquist, Nina Terzian, Jo and
Willard Thompson, Birgit Gutscher,
Dana Hansen, Jean von Wittenburg,
John and Christy Venable, and
Chris Denson, have chosen three
Beautification Award recipients.
Montecito Community Foundation
and Paul Musgrove are being hon-
ored for their dedication in keeping
Montecitos iconic street signs main-
tained. Musgrove, Montecitos Sign
Man, has been servicing the signs
for the past eleven years, funded by
Montecito Community Foundation.
Musgrove has restored or replaced
170 out of 210 signs in Montecito! The
old wood signs are gradually being
replaced; the new signs have an iron
core, so they are not edible, and can-
not be sawed off. The posts are now
pressure treated instead of redwood,
to deter termites, and have reflec-
tive lettering. I like to think that I
take the lowest form of signage and
make it art! says Musgrove, who
has been a professional sign maker
for 35 years. He is so dedicated in
keeping Montecito beautiful, Denson
tells us, MCF and Paul were a given
choice for this years award. This
years Beautification tee shirts are
brown with white lettering in a nod to
Musgroves signs.
Other award winners include Nina
Terzians sustainable coral reef gar-
den, which features hand selected
beach landscaping and succulents,
made to look like an underwater
scene. The 1300-sq-ft bluff overlook-
ing Miramar Beach is drought toler-
ant, and has been a labor of love, says
Terzian. She has added driftwood,
sea glass, and recycled materials. It
just keeps evolving, she said. Gary
and Lyn Hocks beautiful gate on East
Valley Road is also a winner. The gate,
designed by Mr. Hock, features an
intricate, hand-painted wooden tree
with flowers and leaves.

S
o much culture, so little time!
The same evening the Santa
Barbara Museum of Art had
its latest opening, the Santa Barbara
Symphony had the opening at the
Granada of its 60
th
season. Music
and Artistic Director Nir Kabaretti is
active around the world conducting
Opera and Symphony performances
in places like Buenos Aires, Jerusalem,
Rochester, Vienna and Madrid. We are
lucky to have him.
Up in one of the boxes was a beam-
ing lady, Emma Lou Diemer, 85. She
had composed the Santa Barbara
Overture, which was being played.
Diemer was composing short piec-
es by age seven and by twelve she
was writing piano concertos. After
a varied career, she came to UCSB
in 1971 and stayed for 20 years. She
is also organist emerita at the local
First Presbyterian Church. The over-
ture was composed in 1995 for Gisele
Ben-Dor and the symphony. Gisele
asked for happy, beautiful music, and
that it is. The bells of the Mission are
even portrayed in the score.
Besides hearing Beethovens
favorite Symphony No. 5, the icing
on the cake with a cherry on top
was Andre Watts performance of
Rachmaninoffs Piano Concerto
No. 2. Andre burst upon the music
world at the age of 16 when Leonard
Bernstein chose him to make his debut
with the New York Philharmonic in
their Young Peoples Concerts broad-
cast nationwide. Two weeks later
Bernstein asked him to sub at the last
minute for a sick Glenn Gould. And
the rest his history. More than 45
years later he is still lauded as one of
todays superstars. Ive never been
at a performance where the standing
ovation lasted so long.
As to the longevity of the sympho-
ny, Nir said, From our modest begin-
nings as a combination of community
and UCSB student musicians, today
the orchestra is made up of musicians
from many different states and coun-
tries. These musicians now need to
pass a very tough audition and proba-
tion process before becoming tenured
members of the orchestra.
Board president Paksy Plackis-
Cheng is proud, stating, The sym-
phony now brings its artistic excel-
lence to 25,000 residents including
4,500 students from third grade
through high school every year.

view reception of The Artful Recluse:
Painting, Poetry, and Politics in 17th-
Century China at the Santa Barbara
Museum of Art (SBMA).
Docent Gwen Baker, who had spent
four months studying the exhibit so
she could lead tours, took me on
a mini one. Gwen is also chair of
Friends of Asian Art. She expressed,
This is a very important tour and it
required many sponsors to make it

We were standing in front of Shitaos
(1642-1707) set of 12 hanging scrolls,
which are ink on paper. They are
rarely loaned out from the National
Palace Museum in the Republic of
China, Taiwan, and will only be dis-
played here in Santa Barbara. They
will not go with the rest of the show to
the Asia Society Museum in New York
January 20, 2013.
Gwen explained, When war came,
Shitao was put in a monastery at
age two to save him. He grew up to
be a monk, but left it at about thirty
to commence his art career. Politics
influenced art in many ways with the
collapse of the Ming (1368-1644) and
the early years of foreign conquest
by the Manchu-ruled Qing dynasty
(1644-1911).
This show of nearly 60 paintings
was currated by Susan Tai, Elizabeth
Atkins Curator of Asian Art at
SBMA, in collaboration with Peter
Sturman, professor of History of Art
and Architecture at the University of
California.

Taste Of Hope
The Santa Barbara Historical
Museum courtyard was a perfect
venue for the third annual Peoples
Self-Help Housing (PSHH) Taste of
Hope wine and food tasting. Over
30 of our central coast wine, beer, res-
taurant and gourmet food purveyors
were there to give our taste buds a
treat. Montecito Jazz Project kept the
music going while guests bid on the
silent auction, all the while sampling
the fare.
PSHH president Jeanette Duncan
and board chair Carolyn Johnson
told us what this group is all about.
Peoples is celebrating its remark-
able history of Opening Doors for
thousands of low-income families,
seniors and special needs households
since its founding in 1970. During
this period, PSHH has developed and
now manages 1,350 units of affordable
rental units, community facilities and
commercial space. It has also pro-
vided over 1,100 households with the
opportunity to build their first home

his humble beginnings as the son of
Russian immigrants.
My parents were illiterate Russian
peasants. They escaped by boarding a
ship to America. Because of that, I had
the opportunity to go to college and go
into the field I wanted. Everybody here
can become a movie star or a millionaire.
In America, you have the chance
to be anything, anyone. One of our
most famous presidents, Ronald
Reagan, was an actor, and Arnold
Schwarzenegger became the gover-
nor of California.
But Kirk says the biggest light in his
life is his marriage.
My greatest joy comes from my
wife, Anne. Weve been married for
58 years, and married twice! I know
Im lucky. People in Hollywood dont
always stay married. Theres a secret
to our success.
In The Prophet, Kahlil Gibran wrote:
Let there be spaces in your togeth-
erness. I think my wife has always
been her own person and she allows
me to be myself, too. We have a
ritual where we sit in front of the fire-
place to talk every night before dinner.
Communication is so important. At
that moment of the day, were just two
people who love each other.
Presidents Council Brunch
With tuition fees up 100 percent and
budget cuts of 40 percent with possi-
bly more to come, Santa Barbara City
College is certainly feeling the need,
according to Neil Kreisel, president of
the colleges foundation.
Last year we raised $4 million,
helping 6,000 students and 2,500 dis-
abled students, he told a presidents
council brunch, introducing new pres-
ident, Lori Gaskin, to many of the
foundations major donors.
We would like to continue on that
path.
Among the guests were Leslie
Ridley-Tree, former mayor Marty
Blum, Peri Harcourt, Lee Luria,
former college president Peter
MacDougall, Stan and Betty Hatch,
Silvio di Loreto, Allan Ghitterman,
Stan Fishman and Patty Forster...
Landlocked Affair
It was a unique occasion when mem-
bers of the Santa Barbara Symphony
League boarded Charlie Mungers
yacht, the Channel Cat, for a two-hour
Sail-a-bration.
For only the third time in ten years,
the impressive vessel was unable to
leave port because of particularly
choppy seas.
Its a very rare occurrence, one
longtime crewmember remarked.
So the symphony swells amused them-
selves on board, while executive direc-
tor David Grossman entertained the 70
guests with a live auction that included
the chance to conduct the orchestra, cur-
rently celebrating its 60th season.
Board member Christopher
Lancashire splashed out $2,000 for the
occasion, but as he will not be in town,

Broadway Here They Come
The State Street Ballet has a bona

premiere of An American Tango at the
Lobero.
The hugely entertaining tour de
force has the 19-year-old company
soaring to new theatrical heights with
one of its most innovative productions
ever.
The packed audience was in rap-
tures with the Broadway-style show,
conceived and written by Guy
Veloz, featuring Jack Stewart and
Leila Drake as his parents, Frank
and Yolanda Veloz, who were the
most famous dancing duo in America
in the 30s and 40s, even rivaling
the global fame of Fred Astaire and
Ginger Rogers, appearing on the
cover of Life magazine in 1939 and
holding the record for attendance at
the Hollywood Bowl until the Beatles
broke it in 1964.

Montecito
Consensus Builder
Re: the Montecito Fire Protection
District Board of Directors election. If
you are fact checking, heres what you
should know about me:
1) I am the only candidate endorsed
by the Montecito Journal and the four
retired Fire Chiefs. I did not solicit
their endorsements in any way. I have
not accepted any campaign contribu-
tions. I intend to stay as independent
from the heat of local politics as much
as possible as I dont see that the
interests of cityhood, political ambi-
tion, and the need for public spotlight
serve the fire protection and emer-
gency service needs of the Montecito
community.
2) If you live on a private road, you
are responsible to conform your road
to State fire safety standards and local
fire standard enforcement. The process
of conforming is usually triggered by
the application of a Land Use Permit.
The homes that were burned in the
Tea Fire and rebuilt had to apply for
a Land Use Permit. It would also be
applicable if you wanted to remodel
your home on a private road. There is
some misrepresentation out there that
the Tea Fire homes were targeted on a
local level and that is not true.
3) Re: October 25th MFPD Board
meeting.
It is common for a president or
chairperson to ask staff, who have
an expertise in a subject, to facilitate
the presentation of information to the
public. I have worked for and been on
over 14+ nonprofit Boards and this is
how professional organizations dis-
seminate the best quality information
to their group/community.
The Brown Act Pamphlet 2003
from the Attorney Generals
Office, State of California
(ag.ca.gov/publications/2003_Intro_
BrownAct.pdf) is to guarantee that
the public has a right to attend public
meetings, an opportunity to attend,
and a guarantee of a standard of trans-
parency in decision making regarding
the operations and activities of a pub-
lic agency.
4) I am the only candidate who lost
a home in the Tea Fire. I have a back-
ground in the rehabilitation of dis-
tressed properties so I consequently
began working pro bono on behalf of
the owners of our private road from
2008-2012. This work included:
Organized community rebuilding
efforts for 13 parcels on a private road
that required engineering, soils test-
ing, contractor bid specifications and
negotiations, permit applications and
facilitation.
Negotiated with County and Fire
District officials and public and pri-
vate attorneys on behalf of private
road community to determine and
coordinate rebuilding requirements,
equitable cost sharing, and consistent-
ly obtained 100% community commit-
ment to 7 major agreements.
Designed, crafted, coordinated
and negotiated with owners to create
contemporary rights agreements: a 13
parcel mutual easement agreement, an
agreement to conform the private road
to 2011 building and safety standards,
and a repair and maintenance agree-
ment.
Private financing was not avail-
able to a majority of owners on the
Road: consequently, coordinated
and negotiated with the Fire District
to create a Mello-Roos Community
Facilities District (CFD), to finance the
project. The scope of work and the
cost of the project is in the process of
being determined;
Coordinated a water mainline
extension to service a new private fire
hydrant, pump station and easement
agreements and permit facilitation.
I have the experience. I am a consen-
sus builder. I produce results.

In Defense Of Obama
In your reply to my recent letter
(Factually Incorrect, MJ # 18/43),
you asked an interesting question,
...the so-called worst recession since
the Great Depression officially ended
in June 2009, barely five months into
Mr. Obamas presidency. Very little of
the stimulus had even been allocated
let alone spent. If the recession was
already over, what the heck has all this
spending been about?
In early 2009 our economy was like
a gravely wounded person. Actions
by the Bush and Obama adminis-
trations and by the Fed were stabi-
lizing the patient, but further treat-
ment was needed to help the patient
recover and become active again.
The $789 billion American Recovery
and Reinvestment Act was passed
February 17, 2009. Republicans have
described the ARRA as all govern-
ment spending, however it actually
included three elements: 45% ($357
billion) was for federal spending pro-
grams, 37% ($288 billion) was for tax
relief, and 18% ($144 billion) was for
state and local fiscal relief. The $357
billion of tax relief had an immediate
effect on the economy and so did the
extension of unemployment benefits
included in the spending programs.
The ARRA also has had measurable
long-term benefits. In November
2011 the Congressional Budget Office
reported that the ARRA had increased
the number of full-time equivalent
jobs by 3.3 million. Assisted by this
legislation, our economy continues to
grow stronger every day.
Regards,
John D. Kelley
Santa Barbara
(Editors note: I guess youll continue
to believe all that so there isnt any point
in taking issue with those conclusions.
Lets just say that many of us on the other
side of the aisle believe that nothing in
government works so fast. That, barely
three months after ARRA was signed into
law, the so-called worst recession since
the Great Depression was officially over
leaves me scratching my head. If legisla-
tion can indeed work that fast, however,
then perhaps we can expect a Romney
victory could herald new boom times as
early as three months after his inaugura-
tion the vaunted first one hundred days.
We can only hope for such change. J.B.)
Cell Phone Plan A
Good One
I would appreciate your consider-
ation of this letter to the editor
regarding Bob Hazards recent editori-
al (Montecitos Cell Phone Coverage
Conundrum, MJ # 18/43).
The community-planned, co-locat-
able micro- or mini-cells concept sug-
gested for Montecito represents a
thoughtful, proactive approach to a
wireless coverage challenge for our
neighborhoods. I offer some addition-
al points for consideration:
1) The community should consider
the development opportunity to site
wireless facilities as a revenue source
to supplement financial support of our
public safety services and/or schools.
If the community were to own or con-
trol each facility it plans and develops,
net revenue from each facility might
exceed $5,000 to $6,000 per month.
If the community sited four facilities
(discreetly) throughout Montecito, net
inflows to community coffers might
exceed $20,000 per month.
2) I appreciate that the health con-
cerns referenced in the article cause
many residents pause; however, I
believe that wireless users run bigger
health risks by holding their phones
against their heads than by standing
even 25 feet away from a wireless
site. The physics of Radio Frequency
signals cause the power density of
the broadcast from cell towers to
decrease rapidly with distance.
3) I offered the Montecito Association
my help in siting facilities many years
ago. I remain happy to assist with this
worthwhile effort. During the 1990s
my firm developed in excess of 3,000
wireless facilities on behalf of Nextel,
Sprint, ATT, Metro PCS and other car-
riers in North and South America.
As a resident of Montecito who
lives and works on San Ysidro Road,
I know firsthand how frustrating
dropped calls can be. I sincerely hope
the unique community wireless plan
approach suggested by Mr. Hazards
editorial is ultimately implemented.

playing go-between, offering up only
wireless choices. Its like tobacco
executives step forward to design the
anti-smoking campaign brochures for
the California Department of Public
Health.
Not a word about RF health effects
in this lets get together and spread
wireless RF radiation to every part of
Montecito idea Hazard is concoct-
ing with McCaw and Esrey, the two
pillars of telecom (Cellular One and
Sprint) at the helm.
These are engineering solutions
without any regard for health impacts.
Compliance with the current outdated
FCC safety limits is not the same as
safe for health, nor can these guys
make any positive assurance of safe-
ty by deferring to the FCC.
The cumulative layering up of RF
in this community from wireless util-
ity meters (courtesy SCE, and soon
SoCal Gas Co), the NextG mesh net-
work antennas on utility poles, and
other involuntary RF sources is not
taken into account in anybodys com-
mercial plans for rollout of new wire-
less technologies.
We have absolutely no idea of the
cumulative RF burden we already
have here, and nobody is looking.
These two local captains of industry
have already brought us to the verge
of a brain tumor epidemic with their
damned cell phones. They now want
to help design a system of what they
call low-power antennas spewing RF
throughout the community. Really?
Equal carcinogens for all? Better ask
the community before you go off on
this plan.
Along the way, Hazard, McCaw
and Esrey must have missed the
headline that radiofrequency radia-
tion (wireless RF) has been classi-
fied as a Possible Human Carcinogen
by the World Health Organization
International Agency for Research
on Cancer. Since McCaw himself is
electro-sensitive, what kind of crazy
hypocrisy is this? He knows what
happens when you get too much of
this stuff.
Our county officials should be send-
ing out cease-and-desist notices, not
asked to aid and abet the telecom
industry giants who routinely ignore
the health consequences of their tech-
nologies. Especially when safe alter-
natives exist for communities to put
in wired infrastructures for Internet,
voice communications and data trans-
mission. McCaw and Esrey just dont
make any money off those solutions.
The community better wake up if it
doesnt want Big Telecom taking over
Montecitos future and making it all
about wireless.
Dont be bullied. We can and

negotiating an implementation agree-
ment with the County.
Last week, County Executive
Officer Chandra Wallar informed
the Caruso Affiliated team that the
County was done with negotiations
in regard to the application, a move
Carusos Senior Vice President of
Development Matt Middlebrook
calls stunning.
At issue is the fact that the County
will not agree to a 15-year commit-
ment to pay the rebate, which is
estimated at $1.5 million per year.
The entire purpose of the ordinance
is to incentivize banks and increase
their risk tolerance. Without locking
in the fifteen years, the banks see it as
worthless, Middlebrook explained.
The County says that not stipulating
an annual review of the agreement
goes against state laws that prohibit
taking on long-term indebtedness. To
mitigate the Countys position, the
Caruso team continued to negotiate,
offering an agreement term which
would penalize the County should
they renege on the rebate. It would
have allowed us to pursue damages,
but for no more than what the rebate
would have been in the given year,
Middlebrook said. We believe it was
a legally sound suggestion, consis-
tent with the laws of the county and
state. The County did not agree.
As part of the implementation
agreement, Caruso would also have
been required to pay prevailing
wage, which is estimated to be
$12 million in additional construc-
tion costs, without guarantee of the
15-year rebate. Its not logical or
fair, Middlebrook said.
Last week, Middlebrook sent a let-
ter to Ms Wallar, which included let-
ters from two reputable banks that
state the importance of the 15-year
agreement in regard to lending.
Both bank letters stated that no for-
mal negotiations for financing the
Miramar revival had taken place.
Also included in the letter was a
suggestion that the County seek a
third opinion from the California
Attorney General, to clarify the
Countys legal issues with the pro-
posed agreement.
Caruso told the Board of Supervisors
in March that he would demolish
the buildings immediately once his
application for the HIP was approved.
Everyone wants to see the Miramar
rebuilt. We believe there is a viable
path to move forward and continue
negotiations, Middlebrook said. If
they do not reconsider, it throws a
wrench in our plan. We are waiting to
hear back from them, he said.

Property Damage on north Jameson
Wednesday, 24 October 12:49 pm Deputy Baisa was dispatched to North
Jameson Lane to investigate a possible attempted burglary which had been
caught on video surveillance. The reporting party told the deputy that over
the last six months he has noticed an increase of petty thefts and burglaries at
his condominium complex, so he installed surveillance cameras overlooking
the carport. On October 19, the owner noticed the cameras were no longer
pointed in the direction of the carport. He watched the footage, and saw two
male subjects and one female loitering around the carport and the owners
two vehicles. The subjects were looking in the windows of the vehicles,
when one of the males hit the camera so it was no longer focused on the cars.
Although the cars were not broken into, the camera was damaged so it no
longer works. A neighbor who the owner showed the video to recognized the
subjects as 11 and 12 year olds living in the area. An incident report was taken,
and the deputy is in the process of alerting the parents of the kids about the
loitering and camera damage.
Death on Channel Drive
Thursday, October 25, 12 pm Santa Barbara Sheriffs Lieutenant Kelly
Moore reports a body was found sitting in the front seat of a vehicle parked
along Channel Drive in Montecito. The deceased is 62-year-old James Victor.
Although the cause of his death is still not known, it appears to be natural and
not suspicious, reports Moore. The County Coroners office is handling the
investigation. MJ
Read n Post Opens
Third Location
While waiting to move into its
permanent location, Read N Post
will open a third pop-up shop at
Montecito Country Mart this week.
Located next to Summerland
Mercantile and the Read N Posts
post office, the small store will
house holiday merchandise includ-
ing cards, gifts, wrapping paper,
ornaments, and more. We want to
give people the opportunity to start
their holiday shopping with us,
says manager Jan Hendrickson.
Currently broken up into three
small spaces in the Montecito
Country Mart, the popular store,
which lost its lease next to Starbucks
after being located there for 35 years,
is waiting to consolidate into one
large store in the Mart. It will be
located in the former location of
River Blue Salon, which has already
vacated. We are just waiting for
permits at this point, Hendrickson
said. In the meantime, landlord
James Rosenfield has allowed the
store to open in three separate spac-
es: one with magazines and books,
one for the post office, and now one
for holiday merchandise.
The final destination of the Read
N Post is expected to open before
Thanksgiving. Until then, they request
you to visit one or more of their pop-
up shops in the shopping center at the
intersection of Hot Springs and Coast
Village Roads. MJ

Cindy Sage
Montecito
(Editors note. Ive known Cindy Sage
for some time and am well aware of
her concerns regarding RF radiation. We
worked together to eliminate the NextG
distributed antenna nodes on utility poles
near Montecito Union School. In that
fight, we learned that both the Montecito
Planning Commission and the County
Board of Supervisors are prohibited by law
from denying carrier antennae applica-
tions when measureable RF emissions fall
within FCC safety standards.
Cell phones and wireless transmission
are a part of our normal lives and are
here to stay, whether we like it or not. We
have an opportunity to design and build a
broader telecommunication strategy for our
community, rather than let carrier applica-
tions drive the process haphazardly.
Accusing retired Montecito residents
and industry giants Craig McCaw and
Bill Esrey as men who have brought
us to the verge of a brain tumor epi-
demic with their damned cell phones
is inaccurate and insulting. Comparing
them to tobacco executives designing a
no-smoking campaign, and calling them
dont worry, be happy is irresponsi-
ble and reckless. Would this community
turn down the advice and counsel of the
now-deceased Steve Jobs (Apple) or Eric
Schmidt (Google) if they volunteered their
time and expertise to help design a model
community computer network solution?
We should take this unique opportunity
to gather community expertise to explore
a model for Montecito that addresses this
communitys telecommunication strategy
for the next 50 years. Community safety
would be a part of that discussion, as well
as the appropriate use of landlines and
wireless technology.
Cindys criticism is premature. The
plan has not yet been developed and the
public, and consultants such as she will
have ample opportunity to express their
opinions on any solution put forward for
consideration. B.H.)
Awesome Piece
of Journalism
I have tried to keep abreast of the
various pieces of advance public-
ity related to An American Tango, and
have found nothing at all that remotely
approaches the remarkable accuracy
and painstaking detail of the awesome
piece of journalism James Buckley
managed to achieve in his decep-
tively well-chiseled prose (Coming
& Going, MJ # 18/42). Essentially
all the salient background details of
this project were drilled right through
the old bulls eye, especially that of
(choreographer-director) William
Soleaus superhuman preparation
and research.
What is most striking is that Mr.
Soleau (whom I from time to time oth-
erwise refer to as God) decided to
forego featuring Russian Superstar
Sergey Kheylik as your article
rightfully terms this international bal-
let sensation, a sort of huge, strap-
ping howitzer with Nijinsky leaping
power, as I like to style him and
courageously chose instead more local
terpsichorean talent Jack Stewart
and Leila Drake as the shows two
stars.
Mr. Kheylik had only two rath-
er truncated performances in a
supporting role as a murderous heavy
the notorious prohibition gangster,
Dutch Schultz although Sergey will
be used to much better effect in the
upcoming production of My Secret
Garden next month in New York City.
Guy Veloz
Lake Balboa, CA
(Editors note: Why shucks, call-
ing what Id written an awesome piece
of journalism by a natural storyteller
such as Guy Veloz is a compliment I
will cherish. Deceptively well-chiseled
prose indeed! And, anyone that attended
the world premiere of Mr. Velozs An
American Tango knows what a terrific
story Guy tells. The show, its two stars
Leila Drake and Jack Stewart , along
with the rest of the formidable cast were
an immeasurable joy to watch, savor, and
revel in. Congratulations to all, includ-
ing of course the shows director-chore-
ographer Bill Soleau, and State Street
Ballets founder Rodney Gustafson for
a wonderful, exhilarating, and unforget-
table experience. On to Broadway! J.B.)
Vote For A & B
One of the many incites of Confucius
suggested that creating a one-year
plan for the future would entail plant-
ing rice; a ten-year plan: planting trees;
a plan for life: educating the children.
Wisdom is apparently unchanging.
Today, our strategies for Americas
future in fact for the future of our
planet are inexorably linked to edu-
cation. With the advent of remarkable
advances in science and technology,
our world continues to shrink and
the globalization of the planet poses
challenges and opportunities that our
children will undoubtedly grapple
with. How can we best prepare them
to navigate this course, to become the
scientists, engineers, teachers, doctors,
business leaders, artists and architects
capable of leading and shaping their
futures? It is by embracing Confucius
plan for life educating the children.
Our community has a history of
showing great foresight in support-
ing public schools and investing in
our most precious resource: our kids.
My daughter, after graduating from
MUS and SBJHS is now a happy Don,
thriving in her sophomore year at
Santa Barbara High. In all of our
experiences, my wife and I have been
impressed by the commitment of our
school administrators, teachers and
by the families who all participate
in delivering the best education our
resources can provide. Many families
come to Santa Barbara because they
know public education is not bro-
ken here. Good schools not only help
the families of our city, offering real
choices and good options to parents
and their children, but good schools
also have a measurable effect on our
local economy and real estate market,
adding measurable value to homes
and businesses.
Unfortunately, we are acutely aware
of the financial difficulties we face,
especially here in California. State
spending for education has forced
public schools in Santa Barbara to
endure $20 million in budget cuts
since 2008. To respond to that crisis,
four years ago Santa Barbara vot-
ers generously approved Measures
H and I, putting in place a four-year
stream of local funding that generated
$7.6 million for math, science, tech-
nology, foreign language, arts, music,
and theatre programs in our elemen-
tary, junior and senior high schools.
In Junes primary elections we barely
missed passage of their renewal (by
only hundreds of votes) falling short
of the two-thirds majority required by
law to enact these vital measures.
If you believe as I do, that qual-
ity education is our obligation to the
future, and that it is essential to make
serious investments in public edu-
cation for our children, please help
to support Measures A & B. Local
parcel tax support of our schools is
needed now more than ever. Vote to
continue to help offset the draconian
cuts schools have suffered as well as
several million more in budget reduc-
tions looming ahead this year.
Parcel taxes cant fix everything,
but they will go a long way in pro-
viding a consistent source of funding
that supports the kind of high-qual-
ity educational programs that mark
our students for success. Our com-
munity can provide a brighter future
for more than 9,500 students from
Santa Barbara, Montecito, and Goleta.
Please, cast your ballot for them and
vote YES on Measures A & B this
Election Day.

Carolyn Brown:
Kids Are My Life!
The Montecito Rotary Club is
proud to announce Carolyn Brown
as Rotarian of the Month. Carolyn
has been the Executive Director of the
Downtown Boys & Girls Club of
Santa Barbara for almost three years,
after spending 14 years in Bellingham,
Washington where she was Executive
Director of two Bellingham Boys &
Girls Clubs.
Carolyns passion for kids
is contagious. Boys and girls are
simply amazing, said Carolyn. Its
my purpose in life. I love watching
them and helping them grow up.
Naturally, she believes in the
positive programs and results that
the Boys & Girls Clubs offer young
people from ages 6-18.
Eighty percent of our Santa
Barbara Boys & Girls Club kids are
living below the poverty line, added
Carolyn. About 70% are Hispanic.
Our goal is to help kids learn skills
they dont pick up at school and to
reinforce values they need for life.
Carolyn also sees Rotary
as a great way to make a positive
contribution in her community. I
love the way Rotary does so many
good things here in town and around
the world, she added. Life should
be fun and Rotary makes serving
extremely enjoyable.
For the past three years Carolyn
has been a major player in organizing
the Montecito Rotary Clubs Annual
Golf Tournament. Its our major
fundraiser. Recent benefactors
include the local Storytellers, SBCC,
and the YMCA.
She also loves the outdoors,
and with a Recreational Forestry
degree she worked nine years for the
California State Parks and the U.S.
Forest Service. She also lived in
Moscow, Idaho for nine years on the
western edge of the Rockies.
Carolyn plans to continue being
an integral part of Rotary for many
years to come.

ROTARY CLUB OF MONTECITO
LETTERS Page 284
warded to Montecito Journal)
Dear SBCAG members:
As a resident on San Ysidro Road in
the Hedgerow area of Santa Barbara
I am concerned with the plans now
being considered for the area essen-
tially between Sheffield and the Hot
Springs-Cabrillo interchange.
Given the widely held concerns for
the conservative and efficient use of tax
dollars in our present economy as well
as the huge impact on traffic diversion
and congestion that will result from the
contemplated work you have before
you a matter that will severely impact
residents and businesses, not only in
our immediate area but also the thou-
sands of those to the north and south
who rely upon the freeway passing
through this area. I am not opposed
to the obvious and necessary need to
keep this infrastructure at its best. I
am, like many now and many more in
the coming years, strongly opposed to
waste of taxpayer dollars and needless
congestion and disruption.
I appreciate the vote of SBCAG to
include for study and fair consid-
eration the plan submitted to you
by Montecito Planning Commissioner
Jack Overall called the Community
Coalition Plan. This plan will save tax-
payers many millions of dollars and
obviate much of the disruption of the
flow of traffic in an area that is a true
pinch point of freeway traffic flow.
It is important to note that the disrup-
tion will occur not only on the freeway
but also on adjacent surface streets.
You have it in your ability to insist
on a plan which best protects and
serves the members of your constitu-
encies. They will thank you for that
protection and when the issue gains
more public attention, and when the
full impact of the disruption is felt,
they will be more acutely involved.
The converse is likewise very true.
You are not obliged to accept any
plan, and certainly not a plan merely
because it is espoused by Caltrans.
The objections to left-hand exits that
Caltrans makes is not an absolute.
Neither is the presence of HOV lanes,
which serve a useful purpose in the
correct locations but can present an
obvious safety concern when traffic
must make lane changes within the
limited areas between the on- and off-
ramps that serve our needs.
Very truly yours,
Edwin C. Martin, Jr.

LETTERS (Continued from page 27)
letter (Partisan Preferences MJ #
18/43): Nancy ODell is the host
of Entertainment Tonight. In August,
she conducted an interview with the
Obamas during which the president
declared he was not at all divisive, but
rather he has been working very hard
at uniting the American people.
A truly remarkable claim on his
part.
Thanks for publishing so many of
my letters.

ODells name but probably would not
have come up with the additional informa-
tion you have supplied. Your letters are
always provocative and informative, so
please keep em coming. J.B.)
Libertarian =
Conservative
As a small L libertarian, I vote
conservative because I believe that:
Individual freedom is an inalienable
human right and that our federal
government is formed to protect that
right.
Government serves the people and
not the other way around.
Capitalism is the most produc-
tive and moral economic system yet
devised by man. It is based upon
logical self-interest, free exchange, and
competition, not force or guilt;
Peace is achieved through military
strength and strength of national char-
acter, and that, along with the Bill of
Rights, National Defense is the prior-
ity for Federal Government not the
redistribution of wealth and success.
The Rule of Law is supreme in
America and that the Constitution is
our legal bedrock.
Changing the Constitution requires
amendment by the people, not loose
interpretation by the president or the
courts.
Everyone wants a clean environ-
ment, and that EPA regulations did
a decent job for the first ten years
but that the EPA has now become a
rogue agency more focused on Social
Justice than a clean environment.
People can better ration their own
healthcare expenditures through indi-
vidual choice than the government
can through regulatory fiat.
Each side of the abortion issue pres-
ents a powerful argument. Although I
am pro-choice, I am not pro-abortion.
Respect for each side of the argument
makes me ambivalent to the point that
the issue is rarely a priority when it
comes to choosing a candidate.
Education is the foundation of a
functioning democracy and public
education is being destroyed by pub-
lic unions.
Freedom of religion is not the same as
freedom from religion. That, although
a pantheist myself, I recognize the role
of religion as an important source of
solace, inspiration, and morality. That
morality precedes government and is
the source of our law. That freedom
from religion is too often conflated
with freedom from being annoyed by
the religious.
Special rights according to ethnic-
ity, gender, race, religious affiliation,
and sexual preferences are anathema
to our Constitution. Our Supreme
Court should strike down college
admission preferences according to
ethnicity.
The concept of gay marriage rede-
fines the already fragile institution of
marriage away from its central pur-
pose to ensure children have a father
and mother to educate and nurture
them. Add the equivalent rights and
privileges to Civil Union but do not
take away marriage by redefining it.
And finally, I believe that the nation-
al debt is the most dangerous and
existential threat facing our country
since WWII. That the governments
number one priority is to not hinder
its citizenry from pursuing a robust
economy and sound currency.
These things I believe and are the
reasons I will vote for the Republican
Party in November 2012.

Paramedics Required
Montecito has not always had com-
munity-based paramedics.
In the early 1990s, the Montecito Fire
Protection District had been negotiat-
ing with the County of Santa Barbara
for local paramedics. Our community
supported this effort, but to no avail.
After negotiations failed, the
Montecito Fire Board of Directors
moved forward with a lawsuit chal-
lenging the Countys control of
Montecitos right to its own communi-
ty based paramedics. Herb McElwee,
Fire Department Chief at the time,
joined the Board of Directors in sup-
port of this action.
At the same time a very dedicat-
ed couple, Phil and Elaine Kearny
(sadly, both now deceased), estab-
lished a community based Citizens
Committee made up of communi-
ty leaders such as Eleanor Wright
and others. This Committee acted
in support of the effort by our Fire
Department. There were meetings
across Montecito as citizens stepped
forward with time and resources in
support of our Fire Department and
local control for Montecito.
The case was heard by Judge Bruce
Dodds. The Citizens Committee
filled the downtown Courtroom that
day. When Judge Dodds ruled in
favor of Montecito, cheers filled the
Courthouse. All of us that were there
then moved to a private residence in
Montecito where we recognized the

No topic in the relationship between science and
religion has generated more prominent public attention
and heated intellectual debate than creation/evolution,
particularly the issue of scientific and biblical
accounts of human origins. Someboth theists and
atheists assert that we must choose between
evolution and the Christian faith. Others claim there
is no conflict or even any significant overlap between the two. Still others think
there is both deep concord and also some tensions, depending on the issue and how
we interpret the science and the scriptures. Jeff Schloss, a biologist, and Tremper
Longman, a biblical scholar, will explore a range of issues in the relationship between
Genesis and science.
good work of Phil and Elaine Kearny
and Fire Chief McElwee.
This was a huge victory for
Montecito, a decision that continues
to serve our community well.
If you visit the San Ysidro Road fire
station, please pause for a moment
and read the dedication plaque to
the left of the front door. You will
see Phil Kearny listed as Chair of the
Citizens Committee. He and his
wife, Elaine, are most deserving of this
recognition.

Pensions & Perks
I agree with Mr. Hazard 100% that 40
years on any board is too long (Editorial
MJ # 18/42). Mr. Jensen should have
left long ago. SBCC is in the same
boat. They have two people that have
been trustees for almost 20 years. If 8
years is the term limit for President of
the United States, then 20 years is way
too long to be on a public board of any
kind. After such a long period of time,
the trustees or board who are supposed
to be watchdogs become part of the
system that they are supposed to gov-
ern and oversee.
People should also not hold the
same jobs for too many years. Caught
in September in Oak Park, Illinois, a
town of only 15,000, the lady that had
been controller for 22 years had stolen
$53 million. This is equal to $3,500
for each resident! She made the fatal
mistake of an embezzler: this year,
she took a vacation and her assistant
blew the whistle. Oak Park also had
no oversight and controls in place to
watch the money flow.
Chief Cam Sanchez had no oversight
and no control systems installed to
prevent theft over the years, as the
Santa Barbara Police Department had
almost a million dollars stolen in traf-
fic fines by a long-time and trusted
employee.
On the MFD Chiefs salary: It is
too high, but peanuts as to the mess
in pensions and salaries all over
California. In the three years end-
ing in 2011, the State of California
alone, paid out over $800 million to
retiring state employees in accrued
and unused sick days, comp time and
unused vacation days. Twenty-seven
received a total of $609,000 down to
$251,000 and over 4,000 more have
retired with amounts from $250,000
down to $50,100; 16,310 state workers
retired with amounts from $10,000 to
$50,000 each.
Not to be left behind, a SBCC
Captain retired in August with a check
for $115,000 to cover 2240 unused sick
and vacation hours.
One must remember that all these
people were paid a like amount for
working instead of taking days off.
They were paid double in each and
every case.

A Vote For Abe
As a former, multi-term Fire District
Director who lives in Montecito, I urge
your readers to vote for Measure F
and John Abraham (Abe) Powell for
MFPD Board.
I have been actively involved in all
areas of community safety for many
decades now and I learned a great
deal about the particular needs of
this Special District. As a founding
director of MERRAG (I personally
drafted the 501-C-3 applications and
by-laws) and as the Chief of the only
volunteer fire company in Montecito,
I have worked very closely with
the community to improve safety
throughout the area. As a Director
of the MFPD, I served as the Boards
labor negotiator with the Montecito
Firefighters Association and repre-
sented the District as a Director on the
California Fire Districts Association
board in Sacramento and the Santa
Barbara County Independent Districts
Association.
Every year, as our budget increased
from approximately $5M when I start-
ed, I urged the District to propose a five-
person Fire Board to the voters. Roy
Jensen consistently rejected this step.
There was also resistance from
Staff and the Chief, which was and
is deeply concerning. Running a
$14,000,000.00+ public safety entity
with a three-person board is irrespon-
sible. Absences due to conflicts, vaca-
tions and illnesses combined with the
lack of perspective and inability to
form working committees makes a
three-person Board utterly impractical
as well. A five-person board would
allow the District to be truly effective
and would lighten the load on any
given individual.
The whole point of an independent
district is more local control and con-
stituent oversight. The composition
of the Board should always reflect
the will of the voter and not that of
District staff or former staff.
I am surprised and disappointed
with the former Chiefs and their agen-
da in this election. If they do not live
in the District how can they represent
the best interests of the District? I
hope the voters will accordingly be
suspicious of the four former Chiefs
and their recommendations.
A five representative Board made
up of strong, independent community
representatives like John Abraham
(Abe) Powell is a vote for pro-active,
flexible, and responsive local control.
Thank you
Henry Childs

No Trail Untried
Tecolote, the bustling bibliophile
bastion in the Upper Village, turned
into a bridle salon when Montecito
author Maxwell Dickinson threw a
bijou bash to launch her fifth book No
Trail Untried, which relates her eques-
trian adventures over the last eight
decades.
The 259-page tome came together
over the last 20 years and covers her
colorful career in 63 chapters, from
riding her first pony on an Arabian
horse farm in Tennessee and her move
to California as a teenager when she
was introduced to trail riding, which
eventually led to her exploring innu-
merable trails, mapped or unmapped,
on three continents America, Europe
and Australia.
Guests, including her daughter,
Whitney Ingersoll, admissions direc-
tor at Santa Barbara Middle School,
quaffed Sin City Knockouts, a potent
combination of Kahlua, vodka and
ginger ale, topped with whipped
cream and a cherry, concocted by the
SB Sage Hens, a rancheros-like group
founded in 1964.
It has a nice punch! quipped Maxi,
who often takes her pet miniature
pony for walks around our rarefied
enclave.
Others at the equine oriented bash
included Chuck Montague, Janna
Newton, Barbara Cleveland, Jean
Hayward, Judith Pearce and Iver
Petersen...
Herbert Bayer Home Tour
Supporters of the Santa Barbara Arts
Commission had the rare opportunity
to tour the Montecito home and studio
of the late Herbert Bayer, who designed
the 21-ft. high steel Chromatic Gate,
next to Fess Parkers Doubletree hotel
in Cabrillo Park, which is undergoing
major renovation.
Austrian Bayer, who died in 1985
aged 85 after making our tony town
his home for the last ten years of his
life, was a former Bauhaus master
the internationally renowned German
school of fine arts and crafts who
went on to achieve fame as a photog-
rapher, sculptor, painter, and graphic
and interior designer.
The property on Middle Road
started life in 1912 as the original
Santa Barbara Polo Club, which cel-
ebrated its centennial last year at its
Carpinteria locale, a highlight being
the visit of Prince William and his
wife, Kate.
It was part of the Bartlett Estate
and had a concrete clubhouse with
a concrete roof so members could
watch matches, featuring the likes of
actors Douglas Fairbanks and Charlie
Chaplin, from on high. The club even-
tually moved to its current location in
1928.
Business executive James Melillo
bought the 101-year-old property,
now renamed Villa Polo, four years
ago and spent 18 months totally reno-
vating the house, taking it from a war-
ren of dark pokey rooms into a sun
filled expansive home.
It has been completely trans-
formed, he says. Funnily enough,
the original architect, Francis
Underhill, comes from Oyster Bay on
Long Island where I hail from.
San Diego-based artist Paul Hobson,
a former assistant to Bayer, related
anecdotes from his time in the busy
studio.
A fascinating blast from the past...

Association Agenda
In Support of MFD Board Increase
by Richard. J Nordlund
O
n the November 6
th
ballot,
Montecito voters will be
asked to give their approval
to expanding the Board of Directors
of the Montecito Fire District from
three to fve directors. Assuming this
measure will pass, there will be four
open positions on the board. The
Montecito Association fully supports
increasing the size of the board for
the following reasons:
1) Practicality A three-member
board was entirely appropriate in
1917 when the District was char-
tered. Montecitos population was
small and services were limited.
New board responsibilities have
multiplied the burden many times
over.
2) An increase of complexity the
MFD plays far greater role in our
citizens lives that it did almost 100
years ago. For example, protection
today includes specific life-saving
services as paramedics and person-
nel trained in hazardous materi-
als issues. In addition, an incident
on Highway 101 today presents an
entirely new array of health and
safety issues
3) A need for flexibility the State
of Californias open meeting laws
have precluded the present board
from meeting in committees. The
development of a consensus on seri-
ous issues has become problematical
as current issues have become more
complex. Also, the simple matter of
one member being on vacation can
bring the board action to a halt.
On September 24
th
the Montecito
Association and the League of
Women Voters (LWV) held a forum to
introduce the eight candidates run-
ning for the Montecito Fire Board of
Directors. A crowd of about 70 inter-
ested residents showed up to hear
the candidates answer five questions
prepared by the Association and the
LWV. Questions about the need for a
third fire station, fire preparedness,
excessive pensions and long-term
financial viability of the fire district
provided a lively exchange between
participants. Martha Collins, Mindy
Denson, Susan Keller, Warner
Owens, John Abe Powell, Gene
Sinser and Peter van Duinwyk par-
ticipated. Roy Jensen did not par-
ticipate.
The Montecito Fire Department to
date has not had a finance commit-
tee. The candidates discussed the
financial obligations of a third fire
station and the commitments made
by the department without a study
of future cost and effects on quality
fire protection. With so many tal-
ented financial people in Montecito,
most candidates supported a vol-
unteer committee to look into the
department financial condition.
Santa Barbara County Registrar of
Voters has released the Voter Sample
Ballot with statements from the
candidates and I would encourage
Montecito voters to pay close atten-
tion to this election. MJ

Top Guitarist Returns for Rising Star
by Scott Craig
W
orld-renown guitarist Mak
Grgi returns to Westmont
for the Rising Star Concert
Series on Saturday, November 3, at
8pm in Deane Chapel. The suggested
donation at the door is $10; Hotel Santa
Barbara sponsors the performance.
Grgi, who is 25, will perform great
masterpieces for solo guitar and gui-
tar and cello. Westmont cello instruc-
tor John SantAmbrogio, former prin-
cipal cellist of the St. Louis Symphony,
will join him.
SantAmbrogio hopes the concert
series will inspire young musicians
and the Santa Barbara community by
introducing them to the incredible tal-
ent of the many young musicians he
has met during his 46 years with the
Boston and St. Louis Symphonies.
Grgi, born in 1987 in Ljubljana,
Slovenia, distinguishes himself as
a versatile guitarist, playing classi-
cal and improvised guitar music in
repertoires ranging from baroque to
modern and jazz. He earned a bach-
elors degree with Alvaro Pierri at the
University of Music and Performing
Arts in Vienna, Austria. He is work-
ing on a masters degree at the USC
Thornton School of Music as a stu-
dent of William Kanengiser of the Los
Angeles Guitar Quartet. Grgi took
first prize at the Pacific Guitar Festival
and Competition 2011, and has been
honored with highest prizes at inter-
national competitions in Austria,
Germany, Italy and Serbia. He per-
forms the music of Nejc Kuharon
on a new album, String Modulations.
He has recorded a music score for
the upcoming film, Regrets of White
Camellias, which stars Cybill Shepherd
and is directed by Russell Brown.

Getting To Know Them
In response to retired Fire Captain
Ziliotto I would like to offer first many
thanks for his great service in the past,
and a response to comments he made
in his letter to the editor (Montecito
Fire District Politics MJ # 18/43).
He says the district receives 1/16%
(this translates to 6.25%) of the prop-
erty tax collected. This is totally incor-
rect. The district actually receives
approximately 17% of these taxes. The
district in their reception area over the
last few weeks displayed a handout
claiming to receive 1/17% (5.88%) It
appears someone in that office can-
not calculate accurate financial data
or place the decimal point in the right
spot.
The financial report issued by the
SB County Auditor for fiscal year end-
ing 6/30/2011 shows, and I quote
Deficiency of Revenues under
Expenses $2,177.983. I know gov-
ernment accounting is strange. The
District claims no such deficit. Why
would the District disagree with its
own auditors?
He claims that there is ever-increas-
ing building going on the east side of
Montecito. Not only is there not a great
deal of building going on, but the
Montecito Plan limits the building to
19 parcels in all of Montecito per year
and for the last few years that total has
never been reached.
He claims that almost all of Warner
Owens signs were removed whereas
those by others remain. Mr. Ziliotto:
wrong again. Peter lost at least five
sign and I lost six over the same
period. He alludes that past or present
members of the Montecito Association
Board had all their signs still in place
implying that we had something to do
with Mr. Warners signs disappear-
ing. We reject that implication and are
offended by it.
With all due respect to the retired
Fire Chiefs, their endorsement of their
candidates is suspect. Except for Chief
Wallace, not one of the other three
ever have made an effort to get to
know me (or some of the others) to be
able to judge that those they endorse
are indeed the best candidates for the
board. They may be, but should that
not be based on knowing and under-
standing what the other candidates
are about?
Finally, the past chiefs seem to have
ample funds to promote their candi-
dates, especially Mr. Jensen, who has
served for more than 38 years as a
board member. He has been absent a
fair amount of time according to other
letters to this paper. I have attended
several MFPD board meetings and
cannot recall him participating in
the discussions with more than an
occasional word. Not my image of
a president running the prestigious
Montecito Fire Department efficiently
with updated knowledge of finances
and management skills.
I urge the readers of this esteemed
publication (those that have not
already voted) to get to know the
candidates, contact them on the phone
or e-mail (as a great many have done
with me) and find out what they stand
for and then vote accordingly.
Thank you,
Gene Sinser
Montecito
Candidate of MFPD Board
Steep Learning Curve
Ahead
The upcoming Montecito Fire
District election for a proposed
expanded Board of Directors concerns
me greatly. We have some candidates
who have never even attended a
District Board meeting prior to last
week. Nor have they attended even
one of the monthly public training
classes that have been available for the
past decade or more. These candidates
now feel they should have the power
to say how the Fire District is run.
Some of these same candidates also
are seemingly very privileged folks
who find a long-proposed fire station
an unworthy neighbor. I remind them
that Fire sirens are a comforting sound
when they are coming to you.
One candidate thinks his logisti-
cally precarious neighborhood with
its substandard roads was slighted in
the Tea fire. One or two candidates
may simply be looking for a power
base in Montecito, as small as it is,
to begin cityhood talks again or seek
combining of service districts to serve
their own purposes. Since they have
shown no prior interest in the fire
district and its governance one has
to wonder what is really the prize
they seek. There would be no hubbub
if these candidates had not created
it to suit their own agendas. At the
specially called board meeting last
week it was distressing to watch as
candidates preened for the press and
the attendees.
Some have suggested that current
board member and former fire fighter
Mr. Jensen is a problem. The truth is
that he has served long and honorably.
He, his fellow board members, and the
highly skilled past chiefs should be
congratulated for guiding this depart-
ment to the point that it is recognized
as one of the very best in the state.
The best costs money. Montecito
always demands the best some say,
as long as we dont have to pay for
it. Yet the Montecito Fire Department
has not asked to raise the tax rate.
Several of the current candidates
seemingly do not recognize that their
hands will be tied by all sorts of State
and Federal regulations; and, by the
demands of Montecito residents. They
may think they will have free reign
over department funds. Taxes gath-
ered for the Fire Department need to
stay with the Fire Department.
The new directors will have a steep,
time-consuming learning curve to
negotiate very quickly if they are to
be effective. I am fearful about what
will happen to the District if those
with their own agendas are elected.
I will vote for the candidates our
highly skilled, recently retired chiefs
endorse. The professionals know best
what this very critical, scientifically
based public entity needs in the way
of leadership. I dont think an elec-
tion should be bought by those with
big bucks who paid for a negatively
slanted, Florida-based phone survey,
or by angry people who have their
eyes on their own agendas and not on
public safety for all.
I am voting for the candidates who
have bestirred themselves to get some
training or, at least, shown willingness
to learn. Please join me in voting for
voting for Jensen, Denson, Collins and
Owens.

OSB Presents
Madame Butterfly
On Entertainment
by Steven Libowitz
Steven Libowitz has
reported on the arts and
entertainment for more
than 30 years; he has
contributed to Montecito
Journal for over ten
years.
O
pera Santa Barbara is bringing
back Puccinis popular tragic
love story Madame Butterfy
to kick of its 2012-13 season Friday
and Sunday at the Granada. But if
its an old story, the players are new:
Japanese soprano Mihoko Kinoshita
makes her Opera Santa Barbara debut,
as does conductor Sara Jobin and
stage director Keturah Stickann an
all-female production team, still a
rarity these days.
Stickann, a former dancer and cho-
reographer with scores of opera pro-
ductions under her belt, talked about
the opera, her approach and her take
on the company late last week.
Q. Can we start off with something for
the newbies? Why is Madame Butterfly
a good opera to see if you dont know much
about opera?
A. Puccini and especially Butterfly
is a great way to start because its a
story that sits in the collective con-
sciousness. Weve all heard the name
and with good reason. The story touch-
es our heartstrings. Its very emotion-
al. Its an interesting look at cultural
schism and a beautiful take on a very
strong woman. The music is accessible
and even hummable. And its also not
incredibly long so its a great taste
of what opera can do to our senses.
Which is, of course, why I love it.
On the other hand, after so many ver-
sions of this work, how do you avoid the
stereotypes or repetition and come up with
something original in the staging? Or is
that not even the goal?
This is the fourth time Ive worked
on Butterfly and Ive seen it in all
different incarnations. What we need
to do is not about looking at a new
way to view the piece. Its the same
as in Shakespeare. You cant do it in a
way that nobody has ever done before;
everything has already been tried. The
idea is to take a look at your cast and
making sure that you are loyal to
the piece but also allow your cast to
embody the characters the way they
need to. You discover new things each
time. Im still walking into rehearsal
the week before we open and seeing
new moments, new ideas. If youre
honest with yourself and the people
and with the source material youll
create something exciting. You move
forward with a true piece of theater as
opposed to either copying or trying so
hard to step outside the box that you
forget the storytelling.

Can you tell me what you came up
with?
Its a traditional set and costumes so
you tell it in a very authentic way. But I
hope that we surprise and shock a little
bit. There are small elements that make
you sit up and take notice. But for the
most part the story is told very genu-
inely. Im blessed with a cast that can
not only sing beautifully and act, but
also talk intelligently about who these
people are that theyre playing. So its
a much clearer look at these characters
than you might normally see.
This is your debut in Santa Barbara.
How so far has the company compared
to the scores of other places you have
worked?
Just before this I was in San
Francisco. The resources here are
much smaller, of course. We dont
have everything at our fingertips to
make anything happen on stage. But
what we do have is a very accom-
plished cast and a very dedicated cho-
rus and from what I hear a very fine
orchestra. Its a team working toward
the same goal. We struggle with the
idea that opera must be expensive,
that you have to spend lots of money
to make it a gigantic spectacle. It can
be amazing, but sometimes in a larger
theater you dont have such a unified
front. Its very special and we need to
celebrate it more rather than lament-
ing the lack of monetary resources.
The more we push for dedication, the
more good work we create. And thats
what keeps a company like OSB alive
in the community.
Getting a Head
Legendary Hollywood costume
designer Edith Head began her career
shortly after women won the right to
vote, stuck around Hollywood for 60
years, won eight Academy Awards
out of an astonishing 35 nominations
for her work on more than 1,100 films
in total, regularly outfitted the great-
est stars of Hollywoods Golden Age,
and even had a character in a hit
animated film (The Incredibles) based
on her career. But despite publishing
a memoir, very few folks knew much
about the person behind the costumes.
Susan Claassen aims to change
all that. Her one-woman show, A
Conversation with Edith Head, which
plays at Center Stage Theater Friday-
Sunday, November 2-4, provides an
intimate portrait of the enigmatic
Head, including behind-the-scenes
stories of her relationships and accom-
plishments.
Comprised largely of material taken
verbatim from Heads own words,
Conversation takes place during
the shooting of her final film, Dead
Man Dont Wear Plaid, as the designer
looks back over her long career, and
includes a section for audience Q&A.
Claassen talked about the work
from her home in Arizona last week.
Q. How did you come up with the idea
for this play?
A. I was watching the Biography
Channel and saw one about her. Im
artistic director at a theater in Tucson
and had created other one-person
plays for people, but when I saw this
I thought it was perfect for me. I look
like her. And were the same height.
And it was such a fascinating story
beyond just the glamor of Hollywood.
Her tenacity and determination really
appealed to me dramatically: what
she accomplished, what she did and
how she went about doing it. When
I found out that no theatrical show
had been done on her, I was in. Then
I ended up doing probably close to a
year of research.
What kind of research did you do to cre-
ate the show?
There were thirteen hours of taped
interviews. Then we went to the
AMPAS to be able to represent Oscar,
and they actually loaned us two prop
Oscars, the ones they use in rehears-
als for the show. We talked to Art
Linkletter, because House Party was
so influential a show. He was instru-
mental in bringing her out of her shell.
Edith was doing makeovers before
they even coined the term. I got to
see some of her personal wardrobe.

And then once we started doing the
show, people have always come up
at just about every show to share a
story. Elke Sommer. Tippi Hedren has
seen the show twice Ediths attor-
ney gave us some info People know
Im not Edith Head, but they want to
share a moment to feel that connec-
tion. So they are always offering me
more information. I never break char-
acter after Im in my Edith drag. I
invite people up to examine the pho-
tographs and the other paraphernalia
after the show. There are recreations
of the dresses. So when the audience
arrives, theyre swept up in that era.
Theres a sense of that magic.
How has doing this show for a while
changed your life? Has your style changed
since youve been portraying Edith Head?
Its given me the confidence to con-
tinue to have my own style. Nobody
prior to me doing the show ever said
you look like Edith Head. But since I
started, now everybodys going, Oh
yeah, you look like her. I always had
my own style, my own trademark,
but I never had the confidence in it.
But now my friends are always ask-
ing me, Do I look alright? or Hows
this on me? because theyre worried
Im going to be judging them the way
Edith judged people. I love it!
Back to the Garden(er)
Spencer the Gardener (STG) has
been plying their brand of Latin-
tinged surf rock and SoCal party pop
all over Santa Barbara for more than
two decades, showing up at festivals
(Fiesta is an annual must), clubs, pri-
vate parties and wherever else their
groovy sound fits. But theres only
been six albums since Spencer Barnitz
yes, he actually was once a gardener
put together the outfit mostly for fun
back in 1990.
So when a new recording arrives,
its an event. Especially when the title
in question, Breaking My Own Heart,
evinces a step forward for the quirky
band that can be more laid back than a
lazy afternoon spent sipping Coronas
to Eagles tunes at the beach, while
somehow rocking harder than Van
Halen at the Forum. The dozen songs
on the new set range from achy bal-
lads (Someday She Said) to fairly
straight-forward pop-rock albeit with
horns (There She Goes) to an almost
Springsteen-like anthem (Chelsea
Radio), with a highly-Latinized
version of the Loving Spoonfuls
Summer in the City tossed in for
good measure. But the world-weary-
yet-positive theme remains the same
throughout.
This record is an exploration into
solitude and loneliness, said Barnitz,
who composed the entire album (save
for Summer, of course). Its the
joys and sorrows, the ups and down,
of isolation. There are equal parts of
each in being alone. Thats what Im
exploring.
Why now, one wonders?
I dont know exactly, Barnett said
with a laugh. You know, I am a little
bit older. Ive been feeling a little bit
melancholy. All STG records deal with
those thoughts, happy and sad simul-
taneously; Ive always been blessed
with that. The fall which is when I
wrote most of these songs just always
brings those feeling up even more.
Spencer the Gardner celebrates
Breaking My Own Heart with a show
a SOhO on Saturday. Special guests
and a whole lot of longtime fans are
expected to drop by, dance for a cou-
ple of hours and pick up the new disc
on the way out.
And if they dont? Barnitz takes it
all in stride.
I do love what Im doing, but I dont
really have a whole lot of other skills,
he said. I hope this album buys me
about three more years before I have
to take on my rightful role as crossing
guard or parking attendant.
Focus On Film
The Alliance for Living and Dying
Well is bringing back its innovative
film series featuring movies that
explore the impact of loss, aging, and
mortality as well as affirmation of
life followed by a facilitated discus-
sion not simply a Q & A session in
which participants are encouraged to
acknowledge unfinished business and
share their feelings. The screenings, in
Parish Hall at the Unitarian Society
downtown, take place on Friday all
month, save for November 23, kicking
off on November 2 with the French-
Canadian film, Monsieur Lazhar.
The schedule includes The Visitor
(November 9), Moonlight Mile
(November 16), and On Golden Pond
(November 30). Speakers include
UCSB film professor Charles Wolfe,
Alliance executive director Susan
Plummer, Fielding Institute found-
er Don Bushnell, and SBIFF found-
er Phyllis de Picciotto. The events
are free. For details, contact the
Alliance at 845-5314, or visit www.
AllianceforLivingandDyingwell.org...
On a tangentially related note, Tony
Bennett, who shows few signs of slow-
ing down at age 86, is the subject of a
new documentary film slated to open
at the Arlington on Friday. The Zen of
Bennett, produced by the singers son
Danny, captures the famous crooner
on the eve of his 85th birthday as he
reflects back over his 60-year career
while looking ahead at another duets
recording project. In a first person nar-
rative, Bennett discusses his philoso-
phies of life, lessons learned, and his
passion for art and music. There have
been a couple of earlier films about
the singer, but this one feels the most
personal. Its a good bet youll leave
your heart with Bennett. MJ

EASING RECOVERY
FROM SURGERY
Recovering from surgery can be a long and arduous
journey. Painful incisions and infammation are
frequently present even after the most successful surgeries.
Using a feather light touch the body is speeded along
the road to recovery. Recently, scientists at the Pacif ic
Advanced Technology Laboratory were able to provide
proof positive that I emit and transfer energy. Using
sophisticated infrared research equipment scientists
were able to identify that the energy from my hands
was successfully transferred to my subjects, If you go to
my website you can view this... just click medicine and
science.

Tis healing energy may reduce infammation, heal


hematomas and reduce scar tissue. Please allow me to
assist you along the road to recovery

CELEBRATING HISTORY
by Hattie Beresford
Westmont Celebrates 75 Years
with Lecture and noticias
Ms Beresford is a retired
English and American his-
tory teacher of 30 years in
the Santa Barbara School
District. She is author of
two Noticias, El Mirasol:
From Swan to Albatross
and Santa Barbara
Grocers, for the Santa
Barbara Historical Society.
D
ouglas A. Diller, Executive
Director of the Santa Barbara
Historical Museum, presented
Professor Emeritus and featured
speaker John Sider to the learned
congregation of Westmont College
faculty, staf, and friends who had
gathered for a lecture celebrating
Westmonts 75
th
anniversary. Himself
a Westmont graduate, Mr. Diller
recalled his years at the institution
and credited Westmont for shaping
his future. Speaking in the Museums
main sala on Thursday evening,
October 25, Dr. Sider, in turn, honored
the many dedicated faculty and
staf whose enthusiasm, hard work,
and expertise over the years shaped
Westmont College.
Westmont College began in 1937
when Ruth Kerr, president and chair
of the Kerr Glass Manufacturing
Company, and several others formed
The Bible Missionary Institute in Los
Angeles. They soon became con-
vinced that they wanted a four-year
Christian liberal arts college and con-
vinced Dr. Wallace L. Emerson, dean
of students at Wheaton College in
Illinois, to move west and help them
found it in 1940.
Despite an enthusiastic young staff,
those early years were financially pre-
carious, reported Professor Sider. The
college was not able to pay the teach-
ers their full salary, paying only 45%
the first year and 65% the second.
When it became clear they would fall
short again the third year, Emerson
sold his car to help meet the payroll.
By 1945 Westmont was thriving,
and enrollment was so high that the
trustees sought a new location for
the school. When a deal for land
in Altadena fell through at the last
minute, Ruth Kerr and others headed
north to Santa Barbara. The former
Murphy estate of El Tejado proved to
be the ideal location and the sale was
quickly consummated. The rush to
move in and open the college for the
fall semester was on.
The history of Westmonts growth
and development, perils and triumphs
is expertly chronicled in the new
Noticias, the quarterly publication of
the Santa Barbara Historical Museum.
Nancy L. Phinney, Westmont gradu-
ate and director of public affairs at
Westmont and editor of the Westmont
Magazine, writes of WWII Quonset
huts purchased from the Naval base
at Port Hueneme to use as dormitories
and other facilities. Six months later,
the school purchased I.G. Watermans
elegant Mira Vista estate as a dormi-
tory for women.
Ms. Phinney writes also of the men
and women whose vision developed
the ever-expanding curriculum, pro-
grams and campus into one of the
leading liberal arts colleges in the
nation. Ms. Phinney drew from the
historical work of several Westmont
notables, among them Thursday
nights speaker, Professor Sider,
whom she credits with doing notable
historical work and conducting many
oral history interviews.
Copies of the Noticias, which are a
benefit of Museum membership, may
be purchased for $8.95 plus tax by
visiting the Santa Barbara Historical
Museum at 136 East De La Guerra
Street, or by calling 805-966-1601. MJ

PUBLIC NOTICES
Community Association, I am writing
to bring a couple of items to the atten-
tion of the Montecito community.
Four years ago, the Tea Fire took
our family home on Banana Road in
Montecito. The loss caused real emo-
tional and physical hardship for our
family just as it did for the other 210
families who lost their homes in the
Tea Fire. We knew it wouldnt be easy
to deal with the insurance companies,
the permits, engineers and contrac-
tors to rebuild, but what we did not
expect was that our own Montecito
Fire District would prevent us from
rebuilding for four years. Why
would they do this? Because they
want us to build a new road before we
can replace our former home.
That old home and road had
Montecito Fires approval for 50
years and we paid property tax to
the Montecito Fire District in return
for service all that time. The Fire
Department wasnt able to evacuate
our neighborhood or to save our home
in the Tea Fire, but they have been able
to keep us from rebuilding and out of
that home for four years now. Some
of our next-door neighbors who share
that road didnt lose their homes. They
are still served by Montecito Fire on
the same driveway that Montecito
says they cannot serve us on any
more. Does that make sense to you?
Montecito is defined by wind-
ing narrow roads and driveways,
from Riven Rock to Hidden Valley to
Miramar Lane many of the public
and private roads are less than 20
feet wide. If you live on one of these
narrow roads this could happen to
you. The Tea Fire will not be the last
fire to burn homes in Montecito. God
forbid a wildfire should ever take
your home, but if it does I hope
you dont have to go through an
Eminent Domain, create a $5-mil-
lion special Tax District, get legal
easements from your neighbors or
disinterested third parties, and then
build a multi-million dollar drive-
way before you can rebuild. This
all actually is happening in our com-
munity.
The Montecito Fire Protection
District exists to provide a profes-
sional and timely response to the
needs of the community in prepara-
tion for, during and in recovery from
emergencies. Somehow this isnt
happening. Four years and counting
we continue to be stonewalled by the
Fire Districts legal counsel and offi-
cials who seem to have lost sight of
their mission to serve the Montecito
community.
Please consider this as the election
draws near and there is a chance to
bring fresh ideas and compassion into
our community.
Sincerely,
Thomas Cole
Montecito
Smaller Engine
Required
At last weeks Special Meeting
of the Board of Directors of the
Montecito Fire District, a repre-
sentative of the County Auditor
Controllers Office made a presenta-
tion on the Fire Districts financial
picture and answered questions from
many in attendance. Then, Fire Chief
Chip Hickman, who presided over
the meeting in place of Chair Roy
Jensen, presented an estimate of
annual expenditures for the proposed
Fire Station #3 along with a five-year
projection for income and expenses.
To my knowledge, this is the first
time any such detailed information
has been made available to the com-
munity, and it is clearly a step in the
right direction. By Chief Hickmans
admission, his projections are some-
what of a moving target, and antici-
pated Fire District revenues may be
rather optimistic. However, it was
reassuring to hear Chief Hickman
state several times that without the
certainty that Fire Station #3 can be
completed and operated within the
constraints of available resources, it
will not be built.
Clearly, much more in-depth
financial analysis must be conduct-
ed. This makes it clear how critical
it is to vote Yes on Measure F2012 to
increase the size of the Fire District
Board to five members. Lacking the
ability to put together a financial
subcommittee or study group, the
current three members of the Fire
Board have had no input in regard to
the projections presented by the Fire
Chief. This means that community
voices have not been heard in regard
to Fire District financial issues and
priorities, and many questions may
not have been asked.
One such question, posed at the
meeting by a woman who lost her
home in the Tea Fire, is why the
smaller fire engine contemplated for
Station #3 cannot be purchased right
now with available funds and locat-
ed at Fire Station #2 on Sycamore
Canyon. This equipment would be
of enormous and particular benefit
to the northwest area of Montecito
where many homes are inaccessible to
conventional, larger fire enginesas
was discovered to devastating effect
in the recent fireand the new pur-
chase could also provide additional
coverage throughout all of Montecito.
This is a very important question, one
that the Fire Chief did not address and
one that our community needs to have
answered.
Sincerely,
Susan Keller
Montecito

Montecito Fire Protection District
Board) MJ

1st Thursday With the 2012 New

annual event next weekend, music rules in
the performing arts wing of Novembers
1st Thursday offerings. Pianos on State is a
collaborative production from New Noise
and the Downtown Organization that has
visual artists painting donated upright
pianos that are then placed outdoors
on State Street, where amateur and
professional musicians alike are scheduled
to perform while anyone can hop on and
tickle the keyboards during the vast open
times. Youll see several of the pianos
up and down the main thoroughfare
this evening. Meanwhile, New Noise
Music Foundation itself previews the
upcoming festival at Casa de la Guerra
with live bands and information about
the 2012 event set for November 8-10.
Aussie transplant Natalie D-Napoloen,
recently back to the live performance
scene, is joined by Dan Phillips for a
fusion of Americana, indie-rock and alt-
country music on the Marshalls patio,
while roots-rock/reggae singer-songwriter-
guitarist David Courtenay holds forth
in the tiny plaza at the corner of State
and Anapamu Streets. At the monthly
Forum Lounge over at the Santa Barbara
Contemporary Arts Forum, American-born
artist Ellie Ga presents a narrative-based
performance that combines memory with
a vast array of documents both created
and appropriated, based on a six-month
residency on the Tara, a research sailboat
frozen into the ice of the North Pole,
purposely drifting to gather scientifc
data. The presentation superimposes
live storytelling, recorded sound and still
and moving images to conjure up the
terms and rituals of daily life in the Arctic
night. More combinations of music and
art include Encanto, which features a
trunk show with Bradley Davidowitz,
owner of One Great Day in Los Angeles,
alongside live Jazz music from the Blue
Moon Trio; the monthly live sing-along with
piano at CASA Magazines offce, which
is displaying work by artists in the Abstract
Art Collective; and Nootenboom

Bipartisan solutions? While rancor and
obstructionism is the order of the day in Washington,
D.C., a couple of former Beltway insiders are getting

woes. Alan Simpson, a former Republican senator from
Wyoming, and Erskine Bowles, who served as White

AStill Sleepwalk-ing? Comedian Mike Birbiglia
apparently no longer strolls his home in an altered state
during early morning hours, but the star of Sleepwalk
with Me is back with another personal-becomes-universal
monologue just a few months after the original off-Broadway
hit was turned into a Sundance Audience Award-winning
indie flm. My Girlfriends Boyfriend, also an off-Broadway
hit, is described as a painfully honest but delightfully funny
tour-de-force in which Birbiglia struggles to fnd reason in
love, that most enigmatic of human relations. The Comedy Central and This American
Life star shares a lifetime of romantic blunders and miscues in this tale that was called
ridiculously enjoyable by The New York Times as hailed as genuinely heartrending
and laugh out loud (funny) by Time Out New York. Raved the New York Daily News:
Theres not a comic monologist out there who is funnier when it comes to fuffng
personal foibles and foul-ups into endearingly amusing tales. Fittingly for a piece
its own creator called a the most cynically optimistic piece that I could write about

T
he Montecito Heat Index
explores the present demand for
homes in Montecito and thus
answers the question, How hot is the
market today? By measuring homes
currently under contract, compared
to homes available for sale, we fnd a
metric of present demand. And since
real estate activity is highly seasonal,
todays Heat is compared to this
date a year ago. All data is from the
Santa Barbara MLS and is uniformly
deemed reliable.
Under $1m
When this column launched in 2007,
just about the time when the national
market was beginning to reverse, the
Heat Index was structured to measure
single family homes from $1m up; we
just didnt have homes below $1m
with the exception of the extremely
rare tear down. As the market contin-
ued to correct downward, the under
$1m group grew larger and soon
became our most sought after sector
and remains so today. What is differ-
ent, however, is the remarkably few
homes available for sale today in this
sector and nearly everything is selling
and selling quickly. In fact, todays
Heat score is an extraordinary 363%
higher than last year.

$1-2m
This group has also been attrac-
tive to buyers since the great correc-
tion. Last year, this group scored a
respectable 12 and with 86% fewer
homes for sale today, it scored a
strong 39, our second most in-
demand group.
$2-3m
This sectors score of 29 is our third
highest and outperforms last years
score by a significant 217%.
$3-4m
Last year this
group scored
a zero. Today it
scores 15 and is
a big number for
a sector who has
had to struggle to
pull market share
from the lower
end of the market
for the past five
years.
$4-5m
This sector has been the most
impacted by the downturn and many
months has found no interest at all
from buyers. Although todays score
did not meet last years 18, with 56%
more homes for sale here than last
year, a score of 12 is welcomed.
5m and Above
These estate properties, which for
many exemplifies our market, has
received relatively little attention
since the correction compared to the
beloved lower end. Immediately
following the beginning of the credit
crisis, there was a rush to sell these
properties and the inventory reached
into the 90s. For the last two years,
this number settled to the mid 60s.
Todays score is a very presentable
14; last year it was zero, and reflec-
tive of a long awaited increase in
buyer confidence in the high-end
estate market.
Market Analysis
So how hot is todays market?
Hot hot indeed. With an Index
score of 234, it is a record. It is the
highest score the Index has posted
(last years score was 63). In addi-
tion, we also lead the greater Santa
Barbara area with a year over year
increase in sales of 50%. And if activ-
ity is predominately in the lower end,
we are also seeing a deliberate rota-
tion to the higher-end witnessed by
an increase in our average sale price
over last year of 19%.
With inventory decreasing, partic-
ularly in the low end (more listed
homes in the under $1m sector have
accepted offers than not), and demand
as strong as it currently is, many sell-
ers are betting that prices must rise.
We will wait and see if buyers take
that bet. MJ
