The Rising Price of Water

ater, even in Montecito, has traditionally been our cheapest utility, behind electricity, natural gas and cable TV as a drag on the family pocketbook. Next year, water users in Montecito and Summerland will see a 16.3% increase in both meter service charges and variable water usage fees, followed by increases of 7.4% in each of the following four years. That means that over the next five years, Montecito Water District (MWD) customers will see a 55% increase in their water bills for the same amount of water used. Single-family residential users, who account for 94% of all MWD customers, will see their water bills increase from an average of $2,089 a year to $3,238 a year at the end of five years. Over the same period, large users like Casa Dorinda will pay $164,000 a year for water compared to their current bill of $104,000. Westmont will pay $140,000 compared to $90,000. Birnam Wood Golf Club will pay $228,000 compared to $147,000 today. Oprah will pay $153,000 compared to her current bill of $99,000. Residents on fixed incomes and the 37 agricultural users, who need low water costs and low energy costs to stay in business, will be impacted the most.

Long-time residents of Montecito recall the four-year drought from 1986 to 1990. Lake Cachuma became a pond holding only 20% of its normal capacity. Gibraltar, which provides 30% of the City of Santa Barbaras water, went completely dry. Water trucks from Ventura and points south plied the streets of Montecito, selling water to panicked homeowners. In 1991, frightened voters on the South Coast approved construction of the Coastal Branch of the State Water Project as an emergency water supply buffer against future drought. Voters were told that for $270 million, the water agencies in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties would be linked to the California Aqueduct for the treatment and delivery of state water. When construction was completed in 1997, costs had jumped to $600 million. After all costs of financing, maintenance and operations through 2030 are included, the total cost of the SWP will have ballooned to $1.76 billion. Alarmingly, if Jerry Browns proposed Twin Tunnels project, with its estimated cost of $24 to $60 billion is approved, those costs would automatically and arbitrarily be added onto current SWP debt, unless MWD can find a legal precedent to opt out of this new open-ended cost exposure. This year, tiny MWD will pay $5.3 million off the top to fund its share of SWP fixed costs, regardless of whether or not MWD uses any SWP water or not. The problem is this leaves just $8.4 million in revenue for MWD to fund $12 million in operating expenses. Since 1998, MWD has spent $67 million for its share of the fixed costs of the Coastal Branch hookup. MWD still owes another $88 million to be paid off by 2035, plus the cost of any SWP water used. Since 1998, MWD has used only a trickle of its SWP allocation. With 20/20 hindsight, many feel that the SWP connection has been an expensive and dubious drought insurance program. The decision to use SWP as the primary backup was a regional choice where MWD had very little influence. The alternative to continued SWP participation could be the re-activation of the Santa Barbara desalination plant as an emergency backup water choice.

State Water Project (SWP)

Peace of



Montecitos not-for-profit water district is completely self-sustaining. All revenues flow from fees and charges. There are no tax revenues. Historically, MWD has used bonds to fund capital improvements, but its borrowing capacity and credit rating have been severely limited by its SWP indebtedness. To reduce its long-term debt, MWD has opted to fund routine replacement projects on a payas-you-go basis. For larger capital improvements such as MWDs $10 million share of the $20 million Ortega Reservoir cover, or MWDs $4 million share of the $20 million City of Santa Barbara Cater Treatment Plant ozone facility, MWD will use long-term debt. The 2013-14 rate increase of 16.3% is expected to generate an additional $2 million in income next year for MWD. The added revenue will be used to offset increased operating costs, provide financing for capital programs like the

Just Say No to the Twin Tunnels Project

ontecito residents were snookered way back in 1991, when we were convinced to hook up to the Coastal Branch of the State Water Project. Residents were understandably concerned about a drought that had hit the South Coast, and the price tag didnt seem all that onerous; state officials told us it would cost the participating Central Coast Water Authority (CCWA), made up of eight Santa Barbara County public water agencies, no more than $270 million. In return, we were promised water security; we were assured to get 97% of our contracted promise abundant supplies for both household use and landscaping, regardless of the vagaries of Mother Nature. It is now twenty-two years down the road, and we all know the aftermath of that decision. By the time the bonds are paid off for the Coastal Branch, the price tag will have inflated to $1.76 billion.

And what about the water? To date, the four participating South Coast water agencies have received only 36% of their allotted deliveries. This year, it will be less than that: state officials have notified contractors to expect only 30% of their allotments due to a subpar snowpack. Meanwhile, we are obliged to continue paying for the fixed costs of this boondoggle, regardless of the quantity of water we receive or rather, dont receive. For Montecito ratepayers, that amounts to $4.9 million annually. And that, apparently, is just the start. Black & Veatch, a consulting firm retained by the Montecito Water District, recently recommended raising the districts water rates by 55 percent between 2013 and 2018 to retire existing debt and address capital improvement and reserve requirements. Nor does it end there. Adding insult to this profound economic injury, the

state is advancing a new water conveyance scam, one that dwarfs the Coastal Branch in expense, environmental destruction and sheer gall: the Twin Tunnels project. Pushed by Governor Jerry Brown, his legislative allies, and southern San Joaquin Valley corporate agribusiness, the Twin Tunnels would shunt water from the Sacramento River under the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to the western San Joaquin Valley and the South State. In the process, it would greatly restrict freshwater flows through the Delta, imperiling our salmon and Dungeness crab fish-

Montecito ratepayers believed the honeyed blandishments of state bureaucrats in 1991. That, it turns out, was a mistake.

eries. The estimated cost for the project range, without debt interest, is from $24 billion to $64 billion all to be paid by us, ratepayers who have contracted for State water. The Tunnels, it must be noted, are simply a delivery system; they will not increase South State water supplies by a single drop. And of course, southern California ratepayers will be saddled with a big chunk of the bill for this so-called essential infrastructure. For the eight members of the CCWA, that could mean an additional debt load exceeding $5 billion. Of course, the state is equivocating on just what this white elephant will mean for monthly water bills. The math, however, is fairly straightforward. That 55 percent increase in Montecito water rates cited by Black & Veatch? We should be so lucky. If the Twin Tunnels are built, expect our rates to go up by as much as 200 percent or more. Clearly, it is not in the interests of Montecito ratepayers to sign on to this hare-brained scheme. In its size, openended costs, uncertain benefits and roots in centralized and unresponsive government, it harkens to the massive and catastrophic public works projects of the Soviet Union in the 1950s. Such economic models were ill-conceived then; today, they are grotesque. It is especially unworthy for California, a state renowned for its innovation and vast technological capacity. We live in a semi-arid region, and water always has been and always will be scarce. Our state will continue to grow, and we must plan for 

the equitable distribution of water as part of that growth. But the Twin Tunnels are not the solution. We can adopt a resilient and far less costly approach that involves conservation, recycling, groundwater recharge, and the retirement of selenium impaired agricultural lands in the western San Joaquin Valley. (For more information on a rational alternative to the Twin Tunnels, please go to http://www.c Montecito ratepayers believed the honeyed blandishments of state bureaucrats in 1991. That, it turns out, was a mistake: we were saddled with enormous debt, and received very little in return. We cant turn back the clock, but we can learn to say no to officials who have already brazenly betrayed us. Contact our First District Supervisor, Salud Carbajal, and ask him to get Santa Barbara out of the Twin Tunnels nightmare. In the immortal words of The Who, we wont be fooled again.

Weedy Wonder

I am wondering how everyone else feels about the weeds growing magnificently in the center of the CabrilloHot Springs roundabout and the approach roads to it; they are now higher and far healthier than anything planted there. Why would a goodly sum be spent on landscaping this area and then neglect the maintenance? I have asked for help from the Montecito Association and tried to penetrate the departments of the city but drew a blank. Has anyone any idea on how to restore the good look to our Montecito entranceway? Ruth Deeley Montecito (Editors note: You must have missed Pete and Gerd Jordanos letter to the editor on the subject in MJ # 19/25, and Kelly Mahans coverage in the same issue that has led to city workers being sent to that location to manage the weeds. Theyve already done the sidewalk leading to the roundabout and the central area in the roundabout. No doubt theyll soon take care of the rest. Thank you for your letter and your concern. J.B.)

Salud Acts Quickly

(Referencing the abovementioned weedfilled roundabout, Gerd Jordano and others asked First District Supervisor Salud Carbajal to contact Santa Barbara City Mayor Helene Schneider about the weed situation. Mr. Carbajal responded 11 18 July 2013

quickly and sent the following e-mail to the mayor:) Dear Helene, I was contacted by a number of my Montecito constituents today who asked me tocontact you becausethey have contacted city staff on a number of occasions to express their concern that the roundaboutat Hot SpringsCoast Village Road has become overgrown with dead vegetation and that their request for the removal of the weeds and the planting ofappropriate vegetation has fallen on deaf ears. They do not feel that they are getting an appropriate response and asked that I contact directlyyou on their behalf. I got the sense that they are frustrated and inclined to organize an effort to bring attention to this issue and include the media. I let them know that I would be contacting you on their behalf.

Bobcats On Middle Road

Perfect for Owner/User!

Chris Ley has been a preschool teacher at All Saints by-the-Sea Parish School for the past 34 years. As parents of her students, we want to express our gratitude and give her the recognition she so rightly deserves. Ms Ley is as fine a teacher as one could wish for in life. She has integrity in all aspects of her teaching and most importantly, the safety of the children is her top priority. Preschoolers were celebrated in Ms Leys class. She taught them to wonder, explore, create and imagine through her directed play-work stations. She taught them about fairness, kindness, preservation, generosity, equality, discernment, trust, intention, orderliness, respect, interdependence, self dependence, patience, concentration, and compassion.

Nothing But The Best

Last week, in the middle of the afternoon, a family of three bobcats sauntered through our garden; I think it was a large mother with two little ones. Unfortunately, we were only quick enough to get pictures of two of them. We believe it was a good omen and had a symbolic meaning to have a sighting like that. The mom ran up a tree trying for one of our squirrels, unsuccessfully. We thought we were back in the veld of the homeland. Hope you are all well. Did they come by your place?

t this months Montecito Association Board Meeting, a conversation ensued regarding the proposed renovations and upgrades set to eventually take place at Montecito Union School. Last week, MUS superintendent Tammy Murphy was in front of the MAs Land Use Committee, giving them an update on the project, which is expected to cost $40 million. Ten million of that is earmarked for legally required work including ADA compliance and energy conservation requirements. As part of the potential project, which is still in preliminary stages, is a new multipurpose Commons building, which would house a cafeteria and a staff dining area. Located near the Commons would be an outdoor bowl area, which would accommodate up to 800 people, according to the Land Use Committee report. Other components include a storage and shed building, realignment of the ball fields, an expanded media center, and an area for interior physical education, and more. Neighbors have expressed initial concern over noise, privacy, and visual impacts, and Murphy says the Facilities Committee, which is helping facilitate the project, is planning community outreach. The MUS board will meet again at the start of the school year, and will discuss financing, which will likely come in part from a ballot bond. Well have much more on the proposed project in an upcoming issue.

Also at the meeting, Montecito Fire Chief Chip Hickman said this fire season is expected to be longer and more difficult this year, due to lack of rain. Working with MERRAG and Montecito Trails Foundation, the District has been patrolling local trails during weather events, to monitor hikers and happenings in high-risk areas. Two new people were introduced at the meeting: Santa Barbara County Sheriff Lieutenant Brad McVay, who will be the new contact person for Montecito, and Susan Robles, who is taking Carol Celics position as office coordinator for the Association.

n route to Las Vegas on Highway I-15 we had a surprise nostalgia trip back to the 50s. We exited at Ghost Town Road in Yermo just a few miles north of Barstow. There in big block letters was announced Peggy Sues 50s Diner. We thought we had stumbled onto Route 66 and remembered the old saying, Get your kicks on Rt. 66.

As we entered it was like a time machine stopping in 1954. Peggy Sues Diner had been built back then with nine counter stools and three booths. It was built from railroad ties and mortar from the nearby Union Pacific Rail yard. The present owners, Champ and Peggy Sue came from southern California in 1981, reopened the diner in

1987 and attempted to restore and preserve it in its original state. Before they moved to the desert Champ worked for Knotts Berry Farm (an amusement park with an old western town) and she had worked in the movies. The Diner was the perfect place to display their extensive collection of

movie and TV memorabilia. To complement the cozy atmosphere, they wanted good homemade food (comfort food) and great 50s music. They used Peggy Sues grandmothers old fashioned recipes. Build it and they will come! And they did: the loyal locals, trusty truck drivers, mighty military and terrific tourists. It became so popular that they needed more room and turned it into an old-fashioned tourist stop complete with a Five & Dime souvenir store, soda fountain and pizza parlor. The walls are covered with photos of the famous stars from the golden era.

Life-size statues of Elvis, James Dean and their cohorts are strewn throughout the various rooms. The waitresses wear authentic 50s uniforms (I used to wear one) except they had on the ubiquitous tennis shoes instead of saddle shoes. They also had my favorite curly French fries and I ate every one. My folks served them in their 50s restaurant, but you can hardly find them this century.

Its always fun when the Community Arts Music Association (CAMA) Board of Directors invites members and friends on their annual cruise aboard the Channel Cat. Chair of the Legacy Society John Lundegard greeted everyone as they came aboard and told us, Its through the generosity of Charlie Munger that we are able to be here. Board president Andre Saltoun was mingling along with Bitsy Bacon, the outgoing chair of the International Circle.

But the Montecito-based racketeer, who got engaged to Evert in 1974 the year they both won Wimbledon responds: To be honest with you, all this reaction has kind of taken me by surprise. It was never done to hurt her. And Jimmy, 60, claims he did try to contact her before the revelatory tome hit bookstores. I called her twice and tried to hook up before it came out.

California market research firm E-Poll. Forbes credits 59-year-old Oprahs $77 million earnings between June 2012 and June 2013 as well as her prominence on TV, on social media and in the press for her placing. The magazines scribe, Dorothy Pomerantz, says: She still wields an enormous amount of power, which is really what we look for in our fame matrix She is taking her cable network and turning it around just through the sheer force of her will, her connections and her ability. Oprah, who has topped the list on four previous occasions, is just one of three celebrities who have been featured on the prestigious list every year since its inception in 1999, along with TV talent judge and radio host Howard Stern and mega director Spielberg. But she wasnt the highest earning star over the last year. Madonna earned $125 million in the past 12 months. Last years Number One, Lopez who topped the chart thanks to her public profile and earnings of $52 million drops to 12 on the latest countdown. Meanwhile, Lady Gaga, despite being forced to cancel numerous dates on her moneymaking Born This Way Ball tour due to hip surgery earlier

this year, raked in $80 million from the global jaunt. Forbes also deciphered how often individual stars appeared in the media and used Starcount a Singaporebased company that studies celebritys presence on 11 different social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, to assess popularity and influence. Royal Baby on the Way With a royal baby anticipated within days, the phone at Maison Mineards Montecito has been ringing off the hook with TV and radio interview requests drawing on my 40 years of experience covering the British Royal Family. Appearances in the last few days included CNN and Fox, as well as BBC radio in London, asking about the various traditions involved in the process, possible names for the child and what title he or she will hold after the delivery at the private Lindo Wing at St. Marys Hospital in Londons Paddington district, where William and Harry also came into the world. As the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, William and Kates child will automatically become a Prince or Princess with the title of HRH and become third in line to the throne after Prince Charles and William, moving

Prince Harry into fourth place in the royal rankings. Following many decades of royal tradition, the birth announcement will be on framed royal stationery placed on a highly polished easel inside the main gates of Buckingham Palace. And, in due course, like Charles and William, the baby will be christened in the palaces music room wearing a gown of Honiton lace and silk, originally made around 150 years ago for Queen Victorias eponymous daughter. The new addition will be brought up in the confines of Kensington Palace the former home of Princess Diana , with the Queens late sister

Princess Margarets 57-room apartment currently undergoing a multimillion-dollar renovation in readiness for the family. The word apartment is somewhat misleading, given the property is more a four-story house with a large southfacing walled garden, part of KPs Clock Tower wing, designed by St. Pauls Cathedral architect Christopher Wren for King William and Queen Mary in the 17th century. As CNN anchor Fredricka Whitfield remarked after my appearance: If no one was excited before this, they are now! Stay tuned....

Leaning Tree Near Cemetery

Intermix, a new clothing store in Montecito Country Mart, opened late last month

Allora by Laura owner Laura Dinning at the new boutique on Coast Village Road

A leaning tree on Cabrillo Blvd near Los Patos Way concerned one of our readers; local arborist Tim Downey says the lean is normal for the species

As a follow up to a Letter to the Editor published in MJ # 19/26, we contacted Santa Barbaras Urban Forest Superintendent Tim Downey, regarding the leaning tree near Cabrillo Blvd and Los Patos Way. After surveying it, Downey tells us the tree, which is located on cemetery property, is an Araucaria columnaris, Cook Pine or New Caledonian Pine. This species of tree actually bends naturally, and it is not unsafe or uncommon, Downey told us. At this time the tree will remain as is, according to Downey.

After being vacant over a year, the space at 1269 Coast Village Road has been filled with a new clothing boutique, Allora by Laura. Owned

Allora by Laura Opens

by Santa Barbara native and former Antoinette creative designer Laura Dinning, the shop offers several European clothing collections. Ive been a shop girl my entire life, Dinning told us earlier this week. She says she is passionate about retail and style, and hopes to bring the quintessential Santa Barbara look to Coast Village Road. She has worked in the industry since her teens, including buying and merchandising in Beverly Hills and Santa Barbara. Dinning, along with her daughter TJ, a recent grad of FIDM (Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising), have turned the corner space into an airy, open, clothing boutique. Racks and shelving are minimal, designed to showcase the clothing in an elegant way, Dinning described. The store features mostly womens clothes, handbags, shoes, and accessories, but will eventually feature a line of mens cashmere. Much of the clothing is Italian knitwear, cashmere, and silks, designed to be styled together to create a casual but refined look. Dinning also carries denim, cashmere tees, and 100% certified Mongolian cashmere scarves. Custom jewelry, featuring precious and semi-precious stones, will be

offered soon. Designers include Amina Rubinacci, Peter Cohen, Sally Lapointe, Azzedine Alaia, Hache, Borbonese, and Tapeet, among other names, all hand picked by Dinning. Allora by Laura will also feature a line of private label snakeskin bags. The pieces are relaxed luxury, Dinning says, Clothes that women love to wear. Dinning says she is striving to offer the very latest in trends by designers who are the next it designer, and she only carries collections that cannot readily be found in major department stores. I want shopping at the store to be an experience not found elsewhere, she said. The store opened last Saturday, July 6, and a Grand Opening will be held in September, when the fall collections are unveiled. The boutique joins high-end consignment store Mattie & Me, located on the other side of the Liquor & Wine Grotto, and a new mens clothing store, called Best Dressed Monk, which is expected to open in the fall in the space formerly occupied by Living Green. Allora by Laura is located at 1269 Coast Village Road. Call 565-2425 for more information.

featuring a mix of casual and elegant womens clothing, accessories, home dcor, and fragrance. The company, known for its upscale resort wear and home goods, has close to 40 shops throughout the country. Were told Space NK is also poised to open in the Mart. Named after founder Nicky Kinnaird, Space NK is a London-based company with twodozen stateside stores and 62 stores in the UK, featuring an edited selection of the worlds best beauty products. The beauty apothecary is known for its staff of skincare specialists and makeup artists who help customers find beauty solutions across many different brands of products. The unnamed farm-to-table restaurant set to open this summer by Los Angeles Chef Suzanne Goin and business partner Caroline Styne is no longer happening, according to publicist Jannis Werman. The deal is off due to extenuating circumstances, Werman told us, without more details. She did say there is a possibility of a restaurant deal in the future, but whether it would be in the Mart is unclear. The restaurant space, located across from Rorys Creamery, remains vacant and for lease. Montecito Country Mart is located on the corner of Hot Springs Road and Coast Village Road.

I was just about to exit the Taj Mahal Roundabout when I was struck by a shattering thwaaaack on the right rear end of my car. As soon as it was safely possible, I pulled over the side of lower Coast Village Road. The other driver got of his car saying, Im so sorry it was all my fault; you see, Im a stranger here and was looking at my map. Since then, I have noticed people entering the roundabout while brushing their teeth, applying mascara, changing their socks, phoning their mothers while solving a crossword puzzle. In short, doing everything but keeping their eyes on the road. I urge your readers to look up the meaning of the word yield. They then might try singing along with the Taj Mahal Roundabout Players hit record, I yielded once too often on the roundabout of life. Remember, you can never yield too often.

While Caltrans has adamantly and repeatedly stated that retaining the left-hand ramps is not viable, Eades also says a new southbound on-ramp from Cabrillo will only fit if the southbound lanes are moved inland into the area where the left-side ramps exist or if the railroad tracks are moved toward the coast. Without relocation of the tracks (which would require permission from Union Pacific and be very costly and time consuming), there simply is not enough room to keep left-hand ramps and build a new southbound on-ramp. The best alternative that gives us the much needed Cabrillo on-ramp is the Caltrans F-Modified configuration. While no alternative is perfect, F-Modified hurts no one: not Los Patos, not Coast Village Road, not Hermosillo. Sincerely, Thorn Robertson Montecito (Editors note: There is another alternative for a southbound on-ramp at Cabrillo: make an on-ramp that crosses over the railroad tracks! J.B.)

Blame It On Bush

I agree with your comments to a recent letter writer emphasizing the need for a new southbound onramp at Cabrillo (not Los Patos) to relieve the congestion on Coast Village Road. Regarding the time to complete the project, Scott Eades, project manager for Caltrans, said in his recent presentation to SBCAG that the Cabrillo-Hot Springs portion of the project would only take 24 to 29 months, not four to six years as some have suggested. There was also a suggestion to re-

arise on earth? Here is the thing: It all worked perfectly for the earth, and thus also for us. Even though there are billions of stars in billions of galaxies, and billions of possibilities, what we have here may be quite rare in our galaxy, and even in the universe. It takes a star: our sun. It has to be the right sort of star, one that will last a long time, and one that sends out consistent energy. Check. The planet to be inhabited must be the right size and distance from the star, the habitable zone (the Goldilocks zone). Otherwise it will be too hot or too cold... Check. You need the advent of water and the right size ocean, i.e., one with enough water (not too much and not too little) to last for billions of years. Check. You need the advent of oxygen, atmosphere, a stable circular orbit, and a strong gravity neighbor like Jupiter to clear out the comets, and asteroids, which help to stave off those nasty mass extinctions. Check, check, and check. You need a spinning iron core that sets up the magnetic field around the planet to protect the planets inhabitants from the harmful aspects of the sun. Check. You even need plate tectonics, a large moon, tilt, right temperature, carbon, and it even helps to be in the right place in the galaxy. Checks all around. You must know this list in not complete. Yet, dont we take all these amazing things for granted?This life, this planet is just life as we know it, and it is no big deal... Well, it is a big deal. So, you have to ask yourself, how

are we doing as a species?? How are we treating this world that took 4.5 billion years to perfect so that we could live in its splendor?? Even if you are the congressman who recently said he thought the planet was 9,000 years old, and that the big bang and evolution came out of the pit of hell or some such, you still have to ask how we are doing. How are we doing with our corruption, nuclear bombs, nuclear waste, war, starvation, governing ourselves, our spewing Fukushimas, guns, rape, greed, using up all the oil, not treating women equally, fracking,the insane and costly mistake of a drug war we just cant stop? The list of problems of consequence is pretty massive. As a species, for some reason, we have gone down a path that has the enterprise in a lot of trouble. Do we listen to the wise ones who have come to tell us of a more enlightened path, and if not, why not? On this planet we are the problem, and we just think the waythings are... is normal. How crazy is that? If we really knew as a species what it took to get us here, if we really knew what a beautiful, rare thing we have here in this solar system, would we be operating this way? Is there some way we could stop, just for a moment, collect ourselves, and change course? Glenn Griffith Santa Barbara (Editors note: We hate it when questions asked by readers are left unanswered, but in this case, we have no answer, and perhaps there really isnt one. What we can say is Cheer up! It will all be over one day, whether it is one hundred years from now, or a billion years from now, and when that time comes, therell be no way to change course anyway.

n.o.t.e.s. from downtown

very summer our three grandchildren, currently age 15 (girl), 11 (boy), and 7 (hippogriff), visit us for a couple of weeks. This year we flew them in from their new home in Texas. Every year it takes a day or two before we remember the previous years calamity and begin to repeat the refrain of past years: Remind me of this when we start to make arrangements for them to come next year. The first few hours of their stay is always Rockwellian hugs, kisses, snacks that Lora never buys for me but like the Los Angeles Dodgers after spring training, things always go downhill from there. This years downward spiral started at the fourhour twenty-two minute mark. Thats when the youngest ran into the bathroom like the Tidy Bowl Man was giving away two-headed snakes. I dont know why young boys wait to go to the bathroom until theyre about to burst like Harry Houdinis appendix, but they do. We continued our carefree conversation with our other two grandchildren until I said to Lora, How long has he been in there? Grandmas smile turned upside-down and she aptly groaned, Oh, crap. I knocked on the door. Everything okay in there, Buddy? Yep. I could hear water splashing and immediately thought of the new bathroom carpet Id installed two days before. No problems? Nope. I opened the door and saw that this visits grace period was over. It seems that everything, and Ill be as delicate here as possible, did not flush as well as hed hoped, and his seven-year-old brain figured the best solution was to take grandmas nice toilet brush and try to stuff the remainders down the hole. I did what every good grandfather would do. I closed the door and went back into the living room. Lora asked, Is everything okay? Yeah, sure, no problem. It mightve been the look on my face, or possibly the fact that my eyes were watering, but she didnt believe me. She dashed into the bathroom and used an expression thats usually reserved for day seven of our grandchildrens visit: What the &^#@* are you doing!? After cleanup and a ten-minute lecture on the differences between a plunger, a toilet brush and a plane ride back to Texas, Lora returned to the living room and said to me, Remind me of this when we start to make arrangements for them to come next year. Our lives change drastically when the kids are here. Such as, I often say

When you add three kids to the spring on the toilet paper holder equation you can wear out the

in a fortnight, or even a thirdnight

I went to the store for a jar of mustard and spent twenty dollars, but with visiting grandkids I say I went to the store for a gallon of milk and fifteen minutes of peace and quiet, and spent two hundred dollars. And, one single solitary roll of toilet paper can last Lora and me more than a week, but when you add three kids to the equation you can wear out the spring on the toilet paper holder in a fortnight, or even a thirdnight. Laundry is a big deal when the grandchildren are here. Lora and I usually get by with two loads of laundry on the weekend, but with the kids here... lets just say that our daughter shouldve considered sponsorship and named the kids Kenmore, Tide and Downy. We also forget that you have to check the pockets of grandchildrens pants before laundry for rocks, gum, lipstick, Game Boys, live lizards and dead birds. Lora and I seldom need stain removers but when the kids are here we use a product called Spray n Wash Stain Stick almost as much as we use margarita mix. On their third day here Lora held up an article of clothing and asked me, What do you think this big brown stain is, blood, chocolate, or Just hit it with the stain stick and dont ask any questions. And check the pockets! Remind me of this when we start to make arrangements for them to come next year. But then theres always that one day when the planets line up and theres no bickering, crying, or Hazmat cleanup. This year it happened when we took them to Hendrys Beach. The day was warm, the sand relatively tar-free, and the waves were just big enough to be thrilling to a seven year old. On our way home the middle grandson said, Grandpa, that was the best day ever. I turned to Lora and said, Remind me of this when we start to make arrangements for them to come next year. MJ MONTECITO JOURNAL

The Power of I Will Former world champion surfer and Montecito resident Shaun Tomson is launching his fourth book, The Code: The Power of I Will, this month, based on a speaking engagement at Santa Barbaras Anacapa School. Shaun, 57, who also wrote the best seller Surfers Code: 12 Simple Lessons for Riding Through Life, says: I spoke with the students and engaged in some lively discussion. I decided to give them an assignment. I told them Id written the original Surfers Code in twenty minutes a quick exercise to capture the essence of what was important for me. I told them to create their own code. Take twenty minutes and tell me about all your goals. Begin every sentence with the words I Will. About a week later Gordon Sichi, the headmaster and founder of the school, sent me their answers. They were beautiful, sensitive, full of humor and hope. In essence the kids wrote a series of promises they had made to themselves. Shaun, who is also an award-winning documentary filmmaker for his work Bustin Down the Door, says the 156-page book is about faith, courage, creativity, determination, the promises we make to ourselves about the future. Hopefully it will encourage kids to make a commitment to the future, adds Shaun, wholl be doing a book signing at Tecolote, the bustling bibliophile bastion in the Upper Village on Wednesday, July 17. Its motivating and liberating for people. Its a wave that keeps breaking!

The Music Academy of the Wests Summer Festival continued at Hahn Hall with the Academy Festival orchestra, under Bernard Labadie, performing works by Gluck, Mozart and Haydn. The highlight was a rarely performed 45-minute 1761 ballet work Don Juan by German composer Christoph Gluck, with a delightfully lively and entertaining score, wonderfully handled by the talented newcomers. Mozarts Overture to La clemenza di Tito, which premiered just three months before his death, and Haydns Symphony No. 101 in D Major, The Clock one of the Austrian composers 12 London symphonies , wrapped up the show under Labadie, music director of Les Violons du Roy and La Chapelle de Quebec. Hahn Hall was the setting for another entertaining concert, when four pianists John Churchwell, Warren Jones, Jonathan Kelly and CarrieAnn Matheson performed Wagners Ride of the Valkyries on two sideby-side Steinway grands, with other works by Desenclos, Poulenc and Francks Piano Quintet in F Minor, with longtime academy faculty member Jerome Lowenthal on the keyboard. 11 18 July 2013

Summer Days at Miraflores
by Steven Libowitz
Flutist Timothy Day (far right) played Martinu Nonet on July 2 during the Tuesdays@8 faculty recitals

Steven Libowitz has reported on the arts and entertainment for more than 30 years; he has contributed to Montecito Journal for over ten years.


imothy Day leans against the wall in the back of Weinman Hall at the Music Academy of the West, his bare feet grounded on the fine wood floor as he listens to flute fellows perform at his Monday masterclass. In a world where even in Santa Barbara most faculty members dress in coat-and-tie or dresses and the students are similarly formally attired, Day if you will marches to a different drummer. Or make that scampers and dances. Day, who has been the principal flutist of the San Francisco Symphony since 2007 after stints in Baltimore, Minnesota and Boston, loves to wander around the room as he listens to the fellows perform, jumping in often during a passage with a quick bit of expert advice, usually bopping and weaving or at least waving his arms to make a particularly eloquent point if hes not actually demonstrating on his own flute. Do that again, he tells fellow Jennifer Zhou, who has nailed a segment of C.P.E. Bachs sonata in A minor. Do you know why? Because it was great! Later he alternates between technical suggestions such as using more leading tone, or increasing the air speed of the breath, and more esoteric ideas like be freer, sell it and lure us in. I try not to put too much importance on any one aspect, Day, now in his 22nd MAW summer festival, explains privately later, after the public coaching session ends. But I do try to find parallels in real life situations in the way we make music. Thats why Im always asking the fellows what images come up in nature or from their own personal feeling... Its to get them away from playing the commercialized version and instead

really finding their own voice... [We do] study of fundamentals, but with the object of getting the instrument out of the way and have it become your voice... So I avoid the lofty terms and try to hit a direct line to their psyche. Whatever hes doing, it works. As in the other departments at MAW, applications for flute fellows have soared in recent years 91 young artists vied for the four coveted spots this summer. And without fail, the young musicians come away with a new perspective that shows up in their playing. We can have this insane quest for purity of tone, which gets you to close down, rather than open up to the music, Day says. When you get to the other side, theres a lot more elasticity and flexibility in the voice, and a purer representation of who you are as a musician... Theyre great listeners. I make a suggestion and two minutes later, they have it. All I have to do is find the right button to push. His bare feet and casual clothes are a hallmark, but Day is not unique in his informal approach to communicating with his musical charges. In fact, he says, the students are surprised about how normal and human the faculty are. They see were really not much different than they are, and they can relate in a different way, and realize, This is possible for me. Its that time of breakthrough that Day finds so gratifying, which has kept him maintaining a weekly schedule of 10 hours of teaching at the San Francisco Conservatory during the winter despite his busy schedule with the symphony. Its a load but its also my island of sanity, he says. Its great when the [students] go out and find their own niche in the music world.

Meanwhile, Days duties at MAW also include participating in several of the Tuesdays@8 faculty recitals. He played the Martinu Nonet on July 2 a piece that was new to many of the performers and is looking forward eagerly to his next assignment: Debussys Sonata for Flute, Violin and Harp, reuniting with former Minnesota Orchestra colleague Cynthia Phelps and hooking up for the first time with faculty harpist JoAnn Turovsky. We havent played the piece in fifteen years, so were looking to recapture some of the magic, Day says of the work he calls one of the great chamber music masterpieces of 20th century. The pastoral nature of the blend of those three instruments the textural possibilities that are mostly more intimate than extroverted theres a good deal of poetry possible that you dont ordinarily hear. There wont be a lot of muscle, but plenty of feeling with softer voices. Day is also slated to play Vivaldis Concerto in G Minor, RV 103, with early music master Nicholas McKegan (and oboist David Weiss and bassoonist Benjamin Kamins) on July 30. Its just a delightfully entertaining piece, he says. I used to play a one-key flute in another life and Im looking forward to looking back through that window at the time period. To be sure, Day does don footwear for the formal recitals at Hahn Hall. But hes always shoeless for the Monday masterclasses, and often wore shorts before the recent move to air-conditioned Weinman. Im much more sure-footed with my shoes off, he says. Ive been doing it for twenty years. And by now, if I dont go bare foot, I get crap from the audience.

This Week @ Music Academy of the West

Thur., July 11: Its the annual Academy Open House, during which all the events are free and open to the public, including regular masterclasses, a special evening masterclass sampler, plus tours of the grounds and more. Activities begin at 11:30am with a tour of the Music Academys magnificent gardens, historic Main House, Hahn Hall, and the Luria Education Center, led by Academy Emeritus Director and accomplished gardener Carole Halsted. At 1pm, 

faculty artists Jerome Lowenthal and Benjamin Kamins will lead piano chamber and bassoon masterclasses in Lehmann and Weinman Halls, followed at 3:15 by masterclasses in percussion with Ted Atkatz at Hahn, Jonathan Feldman will lead a collaborative piano in Weinman, and a rare harp class with JoAnn Turovsky in Lehmann Hall. Then, yes, its more masterclasses: a sampler at 7pm in Hahn Hall that offers instruction/ coaching from Kathleen Winkler (violin), Carrie-Ann Matheson (vocal piano and interpretation) and Lowenthal (solo piano), back for a second dose in six hours. Also, as part of the open house, The Rack and Treasure House, the Academys on-campus shops, will be open their regular hours of 12noon-3pm, offering a 10 percent discount on purchases. Fri., July 12: This years MERIT recital features 21 accomplished students from the Santa Barbara community and beyond (in fact, this year only eight of the youngsters hail from the South Coast) in a broad and varied concert including excerpts from chamber and vocal works by Mozart, Dvork, Haydn, Kronke, Ernst-Thilo Kalke, Saint-Sans, Brahms, Debussy, Rodrigo, Faur and Gluck. The recital is the culmination of the students participation in the Music Academys MERIT program (Music Education Reinforces Intellect and Talent), which provides musicians ages 11-18 with an intensive two-week immersion in the Summer School and Festival, including mentoring from and masterclasses with Academy fellows. This years participants also received instruction from Mosher Guest Artists Brooklyn Rider. A reception on Lind Patio in the Luria Education Center will follow the performance (12:30pm; Hahn Hall, free). Sat., June 13: Nothing odd about Leonard Slatkin conducting the Academy Festival Orchestra again, unless youre referring to the fact that his three visits to MAW have come in odd-numbered years, 2009, 2011, and this week. The former music director of both the St. Louis and National symphony orchestras who is now music director of the Detroit symphony and Orchestre National de Lyon in France kicks off tonights program with Roberto Sierras Fandangos, which the six-time Grammy-winning Slatkin commissioned and premiered with the NSO back in 2001. The piece blends the Sierras Hispanic heritage with his years of study in Europe, the source of the major works that make up the bulk of the concert: Beethovens Symphony No. 8 in F Major, Op. 93, and Shostakovichs No. 5 in D Minor, Op. 47, one of the most frequently performed symphonies of the 20th

EDITORIAL (Continued from page 5)

No! The last rate increase in Montecito in 2008 set up tiers targeting larger water users with higher rates in an effort to encourage water conservation. The plan succeeded brilliantly. Customer demand dropped from an all-time high of 7,100 acre feet (AF) in 2007-08 to 5,300 AF in 2011, before rising again in the last two years. The good news is that a tiered rate increase encouraged conservation. The bad news is that conservation worked so well that revenues fell below projections, while fixed costs continued to rise, creating the need for another rate increase.

Will Conservation Lower Rates?

plus $14 for a 5/8 meter). Agricultural users in the City of Santa Barbara can buy their allocated water at $1.51 per HCF in Santa Barbara, while MWD will charge $2.43 per acre foot, a 61% premium. Single-family residents in bone-dry Phoenix enjoy a water bill of only $38 per month, fifth lowest of the nations 20 largest cities. Their water comes from the federally-funded Arizona Canal. Similarly, water bills in Las Vegas are low because water comes from federally-funded Lake Mead. Cities like Chicago, Detroit and Milwaukee offer inexpensive water because of their proximity to abundant nearby lake water.

Recycled Wastewater, Reclaimed Water

MWD is scheduling a community meeting to discuss its proposed increase in rates on July 24, followed by a public hearing at the end of August. The implementation date for the first of five rate increases (16.3%) is September 1. While some concerned residents may show up at the hearing to protest, it would take 50% +1 of the 4,378 Montecito-Summerland customers to file written objections to block MWD from raising its rates. This is highly unlikely. Users have little choice except to grit their teeth and accept the proposed 5-year 55% increase in water cost.

How Certain is the MWD Increase?

Single-family residents of Montecito-Summerland who now use the MWD average of 36 hundred cubic feet (HCF) of water (about 27,000 gallons per month) now pay a blended rate of $4.83 per HCF or $174 a month for water AD Advertisement plus the meter charge, increasing to $263 a month in five years for the same amount of water. The average single-family residential user in the City of Santa Barbara uses only 12 hundred cubic feet (HCF) of water per month, compared to Montecito average of 36 HCF, due mainly to Montecitos more extensive irrigated landscaping. This means the average residential customer in Santa Barbara in 201314 will pay only $68 a month for water (a blended rate of $4.50 per HCF of water

Comparative Water Rates

In Montecito, the amount of water used for drinking, bathing, cooking, dishwashing and laundry is relatively modest, accounting for only one quarter of total consumption. The big water hog is landscaping water to Keep Montecito Beautiful, which accounts for three-fourths of total residential water usage. MWD customers use expensive, purified, potable water for landscaping and agricultural use, rather than much less expensive recycled wastewater because MWD lacks the pipes and pumps to recycle Santa Barbara reclaimed water from treatment plants to our larger users. Santa Barbara, Goleta and Carpinteria all have the necessary infrastructure to allow their largest users to choose recycled water for landscaping at $2.16 per HCF rather than the $4.36 to $6.86 per HCF paid for potable water in Montecito. MWD says that adding the pipes and pumps to use recycled water is not yet cost effective, in part because only the largest users like cemeteries, golf courses and parks would qualify for recycled water. The problem is that reducing the water bills for large institutional customers would have the unfortunate effect of raising water bills for the 94% of residential users in order to cover the fixed cost of MWD service in a small District.

How can Water Rates be Reduced in Montecito?


District Proposing Changes to Rates and Charges

Learn more, provide input, and have your questions answered.
An independent financial study has determined that the District must increase rates and charges for the first time in five years if it is to continue to provide safe, reliable water service to customers.

The Montecito Water District is relatively small, with only 4,378 customers. It made sense to have an independent water district in Montecito when ample water was available from wholly-owned Jameson Lake-Doulton Tunnel and Montecito groundwater. Today the major supplier is the Cachuma Reservoir, shared by all coastal users, augmented by a flow of expensive SWP water that flows into Lake Cachuma in periods of drought. An independent study needs to be commissioned to measure the potential economies ensuing from a consolidation of the Montecito Water District, the City of Santa Barbara Water, the Goleta Water District, the Carpinteria Valley Water District and the La Cumbre Mutual Water Company. it makes little economic sense to have five water districts with five separate rate structures, borrowing water from each other, with duplicate overhead, including separate billing systems. The looming choice for a reliable emergency water supply seems to be between reactivating the Santa Barbara desalination plant and mandatory participation in the Twin Tunnels project. This issue can only be resolved by a regional consensus. While MWD customers are being asked to accept a fiveyear, 55% rate increase, a gigantic Twin Tunnel fixed cost expenditure could automatically and without recourse lead to water rates that are 5 to 10 times higher than the increase currently proposed by MWD. While MWD projects a need for more rate increases, the City Water website for Phoenix reads: There will be no increase in water rates in 2013-14 due to reducing management staff by 25% and eliminating 39 additional water service positions. We have enjoyed budget savings of more than $19 million in 201112, plus $10 million in 2012-13 due to employee and management ideas, and an efficiency study reviewed by a citizens advisory council. We have reduced debt by $43 million by improving our credit rating and refinancing. We generated a new $4.5 million by selling reclaimed water. We saved $0.8 million in energy conservation and $0.7 million by outsourcing carbon regeneration. Consolidation could result in significant economies of scale that offset historic preferences for local control.

A 16.9 fluid ounce bottle of Evian water from the French Alps costs $2 at Pierre Lafond, or $15.15 a gallon. Obsessed with water purity, Americans paid $10 billion last year to drink 700 brands of bottled water with hardly a whimper about the price. Can we really complain about the price of water, purified and delivered to our homes 24/7, at a price of less than one cent a gallon when we happily pay $15.15 a gallon for water in a plastic bottle that is probably no better in quality, but 1,515 times more expensive than tap water will be after the new price increase?

Vehicle Break-in on Channel Drive

Thursday, 13 June, 9:33 pm Deputy Mendez was dispatched to Channel Drive in regard to a vehicle burglary report. A woman said she parked her vehicle in a staff parking lot earlier in the day, and when she returned from work her passenger side window had been broken and her purse was taken from the floorboard. In her purse she had cash, credit cards, a checkbook, and her drivers license. The deputy suggested the woman go home and cancel all of her credit cards. The next day, the woman called the deputy to report that her bank account had been drained. She also said that when she returned home she found a beach towel in the back seat of her car that did not belong to her. She believes the towel was left by the suspect. A report was taken.

Intoxicated Woman Apprehended

Friday, 21 June, 2:18 pm Deputy Calderon was contacted by dispatch regarding an intoxicated female at the Montecito Library. Senior Deputy Messmore assisted Calderon with the call. While they were en route to the library, they were advised the woman had gotten into her vehicle and was headed towards the freeway. Additionally, the woman had a juvenile in the back seat, later identified as her son. Messmore observed the vehicle traveling north on San Ysidro Road, but he was stuck in traffic and was unable to initiate a traffic stop. Calderon, who was traveling in a different car, observed the woman heading onto the freeway onramp. Calderon followed her, and witnessed her make a severe movement from the number one lane, cross the number two lane, and exit the freeway at Salinas Street. Calderon then initiated a traffic stop; he said the woman seemed confused. The deputy explained that people had seen her at the library and were concerned for her safety, and the safety of her son. At that point the deputy called in California Highway Patrol officers to assist, since the traffic stop was in their jurisdiction. While waiting for CHP, the womans son whispered to the deputy that his mother had a drinking problem. The case was forwarded to California Highway Patrol officers.

HTEC recently held its annual horse show, which celebrates rider achievements. The show was free except for $10 if you wanted a barbeque lunch. Opening ceremonies were at 9:15 am with events lasting until 3 pm. Don and I arrived in time to see some special riding demonstrations with riders in all shapes and sizes. The only rule is that they have to be at least three years old. We also ran into several friends who volunteer or sponsor like Linda Hedgepeth, Betty Stephens and Lindsey Fisher, and Barbara and Sam Toumayan. Other names we recognized on the program were Chad and Ginni Dreier and Hannah and Doug Dreier, and Jean Schuyler (who also rides there weekly.) Executive director Kirby Gillespie told me, We have about one hundred volunteers, eight horses and two miniatures. We are looking for more horses, so people can call here if they have a horse that might qualify. Sandy Webster is the associate executive director who handles many of the various programs. Volunteers do more than simply 

give their time; they help special individuals achieve real life goals. Advisory board member Laurie Ballard told me about Will Gear, who is now a mid-teen. He had a stroke as a baby and was given only a 3% chance of ever walking. He rode with Hearts from age two to twelve and will become a volunteer this summer, helping others to ride. Hes walking just fine. There is also a program for veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). They cant say enough about how these horses have changed their lives. Call 964-1519 or check out www. for volunteer orientation and training schedules. There is also a summer horse camp for kids 8-16 where they learn grooming, tacking, horsemanship and riding. All abilities accepted. Dont forget about the horse sponsorship benefits. As a sponsor you may choose to be involved in grooming and riding independently, having a group ride or having back in the saddle riding lessons besides helping those with serious disabilities stride toward excellence! 11 18 July 2013

Polo Party The impeccably manicured fields of the Santa Barbara Polo Club were looking more lustrous than usual when Mikimoto, one of the worlds top luxury goods companies, hosted a polo challenge with 350 guests to raise monies for the Polo Training Center of Santa Barbara. The 120 year-old Japanese company, known for cultivating the worlds first cultured pearls, teamed up with Montecito milliner Lana Marm, bankers Northern Trust and the Auto Gallery of Calabasas, among others, to raise around $30,000 for the center, based at the lush Carpinteria locale since being founded four years ago under the direction of Sunny Hale and Geannie Sheller, daughter of polo patriarch Glen Holden, former U.S. ambassador to Jamaica. How much better could this have gotten with this debut event? gushed Geannie. It totally sold out! As well as featuring a David versus Goliath four chukker closely fought polo match between a Northern Trust ten goal team and a 30 goal team fielded by Hoffman International Properties, one of the colorful events highlights was the Battle of the Chefs, featuring David Reardon of the Bacara, Alessandro Cartumini of the

Biltmore and Jason Tuley of Anchor Woodfire Kitchen. Diners had to choose the best entre from Reardons grilled lamb chops with herb goat cheese, Cartuminis Maine lobster with peach and watercress salad with avocado pure and white chocolate, and Tuleys oak grilled sea bass with olive oil poached spot prawns.

It was a closely fought culinary battle accompanied with Chateau Ste. Michelle wines from Washington, with Cartuminis scrumptious creation leading the rankings, after each table of ten had to signify their favorite dish by bursting colored balloons to delete the competition. If those balloons werent quite big enough, a gigantic Ford Trucks tethered hot air balloon allowed participants to go up and up, but, thankfully, not away. Among those joining in the equestrian fun were Glen and Gloria Holden, Arlene Montesano, Robert and Christine Emmons, Corinna Gordon, Chris and Mindy Denson, Pat and Ursula Nesbitt, Charles Ward, Bilo Zarif, Beverley Jackson, Memo and Carlos Gracida, sheriff Bill Brown, Leslie Ridley-Tree, Jeep Holden and Elizabeth Skene.

Red Carpet Treatment When it comes to red carpets, they didnt come much longer than the one rolled out for the world premiere of The Lone Ranger at Disneys California Adventure in Anaheim starring local resident Michael Hammers son, Armie, as the masked ex-Texas ranger. Ive never seen anything so long, exclaims Michael, an inveterate car and art collector. Armie and his costar, Johnny Depp, must have been exhausted just walking down it! There were more than 150,000 fans lining it to catch a glimpse of them. It was almost surreal to think of Armie when he was a young boy and how he is being treated these days. It is pretty darn cool. But he is very grounded. Thats how we raised him in the Caribbean and it has stuck. He is a very gracious celebrity and the fans love him. Im so unbelievably proud. The film, which had a reported budget of $250 million, opened on July 4 and was expected to be one of the blockbusters of the summer, based as it is on the popular 1950s TV series with the late Clayton Moore. Next up for Armie is another TV remake, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., which was originally scheduled to have Tom Cruise in the role of Napoleon Solo against his Illya Kuryakin.

But because of scheduling conflicts Cruise had to bow out and has been replaced by British actor Henry Cavill, who is now soaring at the box office as Superman in Zack Snyders Man of Steel... More Mayer for Perry Santa Barbara warbler Katy Perry must really be determined to forget about her former husband, British comedian Russell Brand.


Stock up:





The Firework singer has just slashed $430,000 off the asking price of the Hollywood estate that she and Brand planned to use as their marital home. The tony twosome, who got divorced after only 14 months together, had big plans for the three-acre historic estate before their relationship crumbled. Park Hill is currently on the market for just over $6 million. The former Dos Pueblos High student originally paid $6.5 million for it back in June, 2011. Ironically, the moving vans never got to move their furniture in before the couple got divorced and the huge property has remained empty ever since. It was listed in April this year, but the price was slashed further to attract a buyer. Built in 1921, the Mediterraneanstyle residence had a two-story grand entrance hall that continues into a two-story living room overlooking Los Angeles and the citys dramatic skyline. The property, just a tiaras toss or two from Sunset Boulevard and the star studded Chateau Marmont, also has a two-story guest house. Katy, 28, has already moved on in the property stakes since her divorce, recently splashing out $11.5 million on two adjacent properties in the Hollywood Hills, as I reported in this illustrious organ. In the meantime, it seems Katy, who has been seen out and about with British Twilight star, Robert Pattinson, is now back with singer John Mayer. They were spotted at New Yorks Waldorf Astoria for the Friars Club roast of veteran comedian Don Rickles, 87. They looked one hundred percent back together, crowed one eyewitness. Watch this space... Curios Collections Social gridlock reigned when the

Arts Fund opened its latest exhibition SPECIMEN, featuring works by a number of local artists including Dug Uyesaka, Dan Levin, Tracy Beeler, Jim OMahoney, Sue Van Horstein, Norm Reed, Michael Long, Ethan Turpin, Matt Straka and Ted Mills. The show, which attracted 400 guests, grew out of a visit to Jims museum in the Funk Zone, where an alternative history of Santa Barbara is represented by an odd collection of curios, says Ted, who is also the curator of the exhibition. And that tapped into an early childhood visit to the British Museum of Natural History, with its old cabinets of skeletons, eggs, weird drawings and old machinery. So I decided to ask several artists many of them work in assemblage and hence spend their lives surrounded by fascinating objects to create their own cabinets filled to the brim with stuff. I like small, fiddly things. I hope for this show to keep you coming back, because theres going to be things you missed. The exhibition runs through August 10...

Born On The Fourth Of July

COMING & GOING (Continued from page 32)

All of Shakespeares 37 plays are condensed into one ridiculously short rib-tickling performance in Elings Park for three nights only: July 12, 15, and 17

Kessler Buckley arrived at 11:41 am on the Fourth of July; pictured here, he is already two days old

money will have been well spent, as you are sure to enjoy this quick and somewhat ridiculous compilation of every one of the Bards 37 surviving works. Go online to www.upstageleft. for more info. Otherwise, just show up at the park.

Kessler Buckley was born at 11:41 am (mom, Jacqueline Buckley went into labor around 8:30 am) on July 4. Little Kessler weighed in at 8 lbs 5 oz and measured 20 inches. It was a home birth and Jacquelines baby boy was delivered by midwives Laurel Phillips, Alice Levine, and Jenna Humphreys. The women work through Santa Barbara Midwifery in conjunction with the Santa Barbara Birth Center. Mother and child rested comfortably afterward. Present nearby were Jacquelines parents, Jon and Josee Cox, who had flown in from Great Falls, Virginia, where they live.

Lances Book

We go back over a decade with Peter Lance, former 20/20 producer, Emmy Award winning ABC investigative reporter, and most recently of DUI fame, chronicled extensively in a 13-part News-Press series that ended with Lances exoneration and some bad publicity for the Santa Barbara Police Department and police officer

Kasi Beutel. Peter lived in Montecito, right around the corner from my house at the time and we connected when his first book on the World Trade Center terrorist plots came out, dealing with the culpability of one Ramzi Yousef in both the 1993 and 9/11 incidents at the World Trade Center. His book, 1000 Years for Revenge, revealed in minute detail the complicity of Yousef, Ali Mohamed and Khalid Shaikh Mohammed in those plots. Lance has shifted his attention somewhat lately, and his newest tome, Deal With The Devil, exposes the sordid connection between the FBI and Gregory Scarpa, a mob killer. I havent read it yet (I will), but Peter tells a terrific tale that he hopes will become a mini-series somewhere down the line.

The anticipated Santa Barbara Wine Festival paired perfectly with a warmer than usual Saturday in June, when winemakers and wine tasters gathered to pour, drink, eat and repeat. Ami Kearns of Cargasacchi approached the toasty weather conditions decanter-half-full: A lot of people are happy because they came from Santa Ynez, she observed as she poured a Pinot Grigio that had just been bottled in honor of the winerys new tasting room near the Hitching Post in Buellton. Pouring for the Santa Barbara Winery, Ginny Holt provided a refreshing respite from the heat in the form of a Ros of Syrah grown in the Santa Rita hills. For most people, they think that Ros is very sweet, she explained, but this one is a wonderful barbeque red for summer. Floral on the nose, the festival wound its way through the idyllic outdoor areas of the Santa Barbara Museum of Natural History, expand-

ing to reveal not only area winemakers best, but also excellent offerings from local purveyors of fine foods. Matt Brady, Co-Winemaker for Jaffurs Wine Cellars, summed up the event: This is my favorite festival of the year. We do something like this every week, and out of all of them, I think this is the best one. The setting back here in the trees next to the creek is so cool. The quality of the food is really good. Thats really my personal barometer for gauging the quality of any event how good the food is. The food heres great. Its elegant, but not complex: this festival provides a perfect balance of wineries, restaurants, and atmosphere that keeps the makers and the appreciators coming back year after year. MJ

Happy Together tour The cynic might say, Well, of course theyre happy theyre getting paid to play the same old songs theyve been doing for decades. But those who have come to one of annual these 60s-70s extravaganzas at the Chumash Casino know that the concert is a terrific trip down memory lane, performed by the original hit-makers of some of the most iconic songs from nearly 50 years ago. And more often than not, the guys still have their chops. This years edition features Chuck Negron, the original lead singer of the rock-soul band 3 Dog Night whose hits were their own special covers of a wide variety of songs, from country bar favorites (Hoyt Axtons Joy to the World) to Broadway musicals (Easy to be Hard from Hair), to quirky singer-songwriters Harry Nilsson (One) and Randy Newman (Mama Told Me Not to Come); Gary Puckett, the lead singer of the Union Gap (Young Girl, Lady Willpower); Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere & the Raiders (Kicks, Hungry, Indian Reservation); Gary Lewis & the Playboys (This Diamond Ring); and of course tour founders and Turtles frontmen Flo & Eddie (You Showed Me, Elenore, Happy Together, Shed Rather Be With Me).

The multi-heat, all-skill-levelswelcome event has two levels Family Fun or Paddling Pros for makeshift mariners of varying skill and confidence (or folly, if you prefer).

The loneliness and despair of depression can be overwhelming. When talking cures and drug therapies are not working a gentle touch using healing energy could be an answer. By lightly manipulating and massaging the facets of the skull, depression may begin to lift. I developed this fascinating approach to remediation of depression by working with many clients who have exhausted all other possibilities. I feel blessed to have been given this wonderful inherited gift. Using my intuition I follow my hands and help you experience an emotional and physical homeostasis. I feel confident about this work and I offer a money back guarantee. You have nothing to lose. Please call today for an appointment.

century (8pm; Granada, $15-$48). Mon., July 15: This weeks Mosher Guest Artist is the pianist Jeremy Denk, known for both his virtuosic playing and his writing, including an ongoing blog that covers subjects musical and beyond. Denk, who performed at UCSBs Campbell Hall and conducted a masterclass with students there just last March, begins his visit to Miraflores with another public coaching session with the talented solo piano fellows (1pm; Hahn Hall; $15 keyboard side, $13). Denk who will be back in the area again next June to serve as artistic director of the prestigious Ojai Festival will also participate in Tuesdays@8 tomorrow night at Hahn, and play a full recital at the same venue on Wednesday... With soon-to-be-former New York Philharmonic concertmaster Glenn Dicterow set to join the full-time festival faculty next summer, the Academy is employing visiting violinists to fill the slot long held by Zvi Zeitlin before his death late last spring. This week, its Brian Lewis, a versatile and charismatic violinist who has offered concerto debuts in both Carnegie Hall and Avery Fisher Hall, as well as appeared with the Orchestra of St. Lukes and the Berlin (Germany), Louisiana, Kansas City, Syracuse, Hartford, Odense (Denmark), Greenwich, Wichita, Lima (Peru), Topeka, Boulder, Guadalajara (Mexico), and Sinfonia Toronto (Canada) symphony orchestras, among many others. His numerous recital appearances include performances across the United States, including the Mostly Mozart Festival and the Great Performers Series at Lincoln Center in New York. His only public appearance at MAW 2013 is todays violin masterclass (3:15pm; Lehmann, $13/$12). Tues. July 16: Weve seen plenty of New York Philharmonic principal violist Cynthia Phelps in the 805 recently, including the NY Phils first Santa Barbara concert in 44 years at the Granada in spring 2012 and again last winter as a co-soloist with Dicterow for the Santa Barbara Symphony, not to mention the last two summers here at the Music Academy. Phelps, who isnt retiring next year, has so many accolades theres no point in beginning to list

them here, save perhaps for mentioning that her most recent album, with the Les Amies trio, was nominated for a Grammy Award. Which makes her the perfect leader for todays string chamber masterclass (1pm; Lehmann, $13/$12)... Phelps also gets two slots on tonights Tuesdays@8 concert, teaming with pianist Denk for Benjamin Brittens Lachrymae, the first of two works commemorating the English composers 100th birthday (the Phantasy Quartet is next week), and joining flutist Timothy Day and harpist JoAnn Turovsky for Debussys pioneering sonata that established a new instrumental ensemble that has become de rigueur today. Also of note: percussion faculty member Ted Atkatzs 2012 composition Turn Key Hotel, in which hell be joined by fellow faculty percussionist Michael Werner for the piece written for guitar and percussion. Lowenthal plays Ravels Sonatine and pianists Natasha Kislenko and Margaret McDonald perform John Mustos two-piano arrangement of Symphonic Dances from Bernsteins West Side Story to round out the generous program (8pm; Hahn; $40). Wed., July 17: The guests just keep on comin: todays its cellist Joshua Roman, a one-time prodigy who just keeps growing in ability, confidence and stature; hes now serving as the festivals first Academy Alumnus in Residence. Roman conducts the cello masterclass featuring fellows just a few years younger than he is (1pm; Lehmann, $13/$12), and hell also play in the Britten in next weeks Tuesdays@8... Denks recital features just two works, but theyre monumental pieces: Schumanns Davidsbndlertnze, Op. 6, and Bachs Goldberg Variations BWV 988 (8pm; Hahn, $50).

Off Campus

Normally, we get to see the fellows and faculty of the summer festival only on the Miraflores campus. Sure, you might catch a glimpse of fellows shopping on State Street or strolling back from sunbathing on Butterfly Beach in a rare spare hour or two.

Montecito estate, save for orchestral concerts at the Granada. But the fellows also carpool downtown for weekly concerts at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art on Thursday afternoons. The performances mirror the popular Picnic Concerts at Hahn Hall, as the students perform pieces theyve been working on during the summer in coachings and mas-

terclasses, and since the space is small and admission is free, theres a huge demand for the limited seating. Complimentary tickets are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 1:30pm at the museums back entrance, so dont tarry. Even more special is the one-off appearance by NYCO at SOhO on Thursday. This is the rock band that Ted Atkatz left his position as Chicago Symphony Orchestras principal percussionist in order to pursue, which made headlines back in 2007. Atkatz, who is the bands guitarist-singer-

songwriter, reformed NYCO when he moved to LA in 2008, and since then the trio has played at SXSW and the Coachella Festival just this past spring. NYCO has three albums out, including last years Future Imperfect, and you can bet all of his percussion fellows and a whole lot of other MAW supporters will be on hand for the 10pm concert. Finally, Slatkin also has a special date on Thursday; the music director will discuss and sign copies of his new book Conducting Business at Chaucers Books on upper State Street at 7pm.  MJ
