MONTECITO JOURNAL

The Voice of the Village

Editorial

by Bob Hazard

Mr. Hazard is an Associate Editor of this paper and a former president of Birnam Wood Golf Club

discussion of community character is fairly straightforward, if discussion never moves past the mantra that Montecito is a great place to live because of its climate and its semi-rural character. The interesting challenge is to dig deeper into what makes Montecito unique and special, relative to other affluent beachfront communities such as Santa Monica, La Jolla, Malibu, or even Hope Ranch. Based on readers comments received to date, here is a composite profile of what responding Montecito residents find most appealing about this village, apart from its climate and topography. Semi-Rural Does Actually Mean Something Most often mentioned were Montecitos narrow, winding, tree-lined roadways, built for scenic beauty, not for speed of travel. Our local roads, lined with handmade stone walls, hedges and overhanging trees, serve as both community connectors and landscape art. Montecito has a completely different feel from Santa Monica or Malibu. Others suggest that the Countys $290 million deficit in deferred maintenance for county roads, and increased local traffic seeking to bypass the 101, pose significant future challenges. Two unique points of difference are our handmade wooden street signs and rustic creek bridges. Absence of street lights in Montecito creates magical nighttime skies. There are few sidewalks and only one traffic light. A network of hiking and equestrian trails have been acquired and maintained by the Montecito Trails Foundation. Residential Feeling Residents admire Montecitos proliferation of beautiful private homes, many sitting on one acre or more of land, set back from the roadways with gorgeous stone pavers, wrought-iron gates and tree-lined driveways. At the same time, some respondents fear for the survival of more modest neighborhoods near the Lower Village and question whether gated homes create a sense of isolation. Too often, when residents are separated from their neighbors by walls and gates, their best friends become their housekeepers, their gardeners and their Mercedes and BMWs. A wide variety of plants and flowers flourish in Montecito as well as its residents do. Lush, landscaped gardens, gorgeous overhanging coast live oak and sycamore trees, flowers that bloom year-round, roadside vistas of low handcrafted stone walls, flowering shrubs, all beautifully maintained by caring neighbors, are defining community characteristics. Community Treasures Within an area of only 9.3 square miles, we are blessed with world-class treasures like Lotusland, The Music Academy of the West, the Biltmore, the Coral Casino, Butterfly Beach, the San Ysidro Ranch, Westmont College, the historic Birnam Wood Clubhouse, Casa Dorinda, Casa del Herrero (House of the Blacksmith), the Charlie Chaplin-inspired Montecito Inn, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church & School, All Saints Episcopal Church-by-theSea & Preschool, El Montecito Presbyterian Church & Pre-School, Crane School, Montecito Union School, Cold Spring Elementary, Laguna Blanca School, Manning Park, the Corner Green, the YMCA, fine restaurants, locally-owned specialty shops, a hometown newspaper (thats us!), the 4th of July Parade and Pancake Breakfast, and almost 200 years of a storied history. Two Village Centers Unlike Hope Ranch, Montecito enjoys two charming neighborhood centers, one in the Upper Village and one in the Lower Village. They serve as gathering places for dining, shopping and staying in touch with neighbors. Our community is blessed with enlightened developers like Richard Gunner who gets it with respect to community character in designing and creating the new villagefriendly center just above the San Ysidro Pharmacy. Conversely, there is a growing concern over the potential for increased height, mass, density and traffic on Coast Village Road, where zoning is controlled by the City of Santa Barbara. Responders point to the Montecito Community Plan, now 21 years old, as the protector of land use and zoning concerns. The Montecito Association and the Montecito Planning Commission are seen as the guardians at the gate for regulating development in conformance with community standards. Some suggest that both institutions need to find new ways to become more relevant to the community, and become more pro-active than re-active in planning for Montecitos future. If you have additional thoughts on this subject, please email me at bobhaz ard@gmail.com. In coming weeks, we will tackle a series of issues identified by readers that pose challenges to the future of Montecito and its cherished semirural status. MJ 8 15 August 2013

Deal With The Devil


ocal writer Peter Lance has hit the publicity jackpot! Peter, who has just published his fourth book Deal With The Devil, about the governments relationship with gangster-murderer Gregory Scarpa Sr., spoke at the one-year-old Mob Museum in Las Vegas at the weekend, which was filmed for Book TV on C-SPAN 2, the cable satellite public affairs network. They have covered my three previous books, says Peter, a five-time Emmy Award-winning investigative reporter. The piece should start airing in the next week or two. They will run it multiple times, as well as archiving it. It is great promotion.

LETTERS

TO THE EDITOR

Still Pumping For Cityhood?


r. Hazards disingenuous call for a community conversation about the future of Montecito (Editorial, MJ # 19/29) does not disguise his perennial agenda: cityhood. He has not succeeded so far, but he will obviously keep trying. Glenn Jordan Montecito (Editors note: Hopefully, our community can have a meaningful conversation about Montecitos strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and problems without tossing disingenuous bricks at each other. Fortunately, of the more than 35 responses to bobhazard@gmail.com received so far, only one has mentioned incorporation in passing. B.H.)

Now that the weed problem at the roundabout has been addressed (see various Letters to the Editor and Village Beat articles over the last four or five issues), perhaps attention should be given to the mess at

Weeds Be Gone

the northwest corner of Hot Springs Road and Alston Road. Years ago this area was very well maintained and covered in pink geranium plants. In the last few years it has become an eyesore covered with fallen eucalyptus limbs and other debris. At times it has even been used as a makeshift parking lot. Yes, this is where the strawberry truck owner parks to ply his wares, but it really needs some TLC. Hundreds of drivers pass this area every day. Perhaps the Montecito Association can beautify this area as a fall project? Terry Tyler Santa Barbara (Editors note: Now that the Montecito Association has read your plea, some on the Beautification Committee are very likely to take it from here! J.B.)

many years ago when I had a hard time pushing that old lawn mower, so I decided to get rid of the grass in my front yard. That plus the fact that it was crabgrass which never turned brown, and was so embarrassing to have green grass during the drought years when we were required to conserve water. So one day I dug up all that crabgrass and piled it up, since I didnt want to pay to have it taken away. After covering the pile with black plastic, it looked like I had buried someone. So I made a wooden sign that read: Here lies Mrs. Crab Grass Killed by Mr. Round Up 1940 - 1990 May she rest in peace. I loved to watch people walk by, read the sign, and burst out laughing. That lasted until someone stole my sign. That was a bummer. I continued with my plan to plant ground cover. While planting, I had several macho men drive by and yell out that my plan will never work because nothing can be planted on crabgrass. I also wanted one taller plant. My boyfriend Bob gave me a cactus and I planted that with the idea it probably wouldnt work. Well, it got huge, and I have to keep cutting away those big heavy stems. As soon as I saw what a success it was, I set my old, rusty lawn mover out front to be taken away by the trash collectors. A neighbor asked to take it and used it for years. I did not envy her, and felt great about my healthy ground cover and cactus.

Thanks For Being A Friend

Thank you to Lynda Millner for her continued support of the Womens Board of the Santa Barbara Museum

In the few years since her passing, Huguette Clark has become the obsession of investigative reporters, longlost relatives and (I imagine) countless lawyers. Before her death, the woman was a little known recluse living in a Manhattan hospital. She quietly maintained her privacy and several magnificent homes without ever appearing in tabloids, gossip columns or Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous.Yes, her financial advisers may have been a bit on the careless side by installing her for a long, long-term stay in a pricey New York hospital. Luckily, for the relatives or the ultimate beneficiaries of one of her wills, they did not install her on Richard Bransons private island at $420,000 per week. Even the great Clark fortune could not have withstood such 21st century extravagance. As is usually the case with great fortunes, concerned and now outraged relatives are attempting to save what is left. There is a great wringing of hands about the alleged abuse of this lovely and private woman and herfortune. Yet, in spite of eccentricity and isolation, Huguette lived a long generous life. One need only pass the Andree Clark Bird Refuge to see a prime example of her largess. For many decades her grand estate has remained a guardian of the much lost Santa Barbara past. By charm or chance, we have been spared endless development or re-development schemes for the aforementioned property. Thankfully no

one has gone broke trying to build condos, resort hotels, beach club spas or amusement parks on the property. Best of all, the estate has remained in relative oblivion, not troubled by celebrity owners or garish weddings. Paul Kael Santa Barbara (Editors note: The conflicting claims of caretakers, nurses, maids, and family members should keep a fleet of lawyers fat and happy for the next decade. In the end, however, it is difficult to see how Santa Barbara comes out ahead. J.B.)

Old Spanish Days celebrations are over now, but Im sending on this recipe from the 1950s that we have made each year for Fiesta anyway. I thought MJ readers might like to have a taste of what this huge citywide celebration means to the healthy soul of Santa Barbara. Fiesta in Santa Barbara is like an annual cleansing of the soul,a sort of purification that re-makes the participant and this remarkable city in a mystical way. Its really a celebration of the early California ideal of romantic, unfettered spirit and breathtaking landscapes with stunning architecture. For the native born in Santa Barbara, this ritual is a chance to demonstrate a remarkable heritage and in this way insure the future of our rare legacy for yet another year. Finally,it is a passionate plea to all who live here, and all who visit, to love it deeply, and preserve it always. And whos kidding who? there is a certain amount ofjustdownright shameless letting loose. Inour early years, the Fiesta traditiondid herald the planning of many events like today but in a much more homespun way. No fancy polka dotted dresses and shawls for us; we made our tiered skirts and giant flowers with colorful crepe paper. Beside the spectacular dancing and outdoor markets, a favorite happening wasthe Fiesta Block Party with a fabulous spread of classic Fiesta dishes. The stars of the banquet table in our neighborhood were our very special enchiladas that always vanished soon after they were served.We are still famous for these mouthwatering favorites. Famous Santa Barbara Fiesta Enchiladas Ingredients: 16-18 yellow corn tortillas 2 lbsground meat, turkey or veggie substitute Large yellow onion chopped, medium 3 cloves garlic 1/4 cup chopped cilantro or parsley 1 tbsp spicy paprika, plus powdered chipotle (or to taste) Salt & pepper 1 large can diced tomatoes 8 15 August 2013

A Fiesta Recipe

1/2 lb Longhorn cheddar cheese cut to 2 sticks 1/2 lb. Monterey Jack cheese cut to 2 sticks 1 C. Parmesan cheese grated Extra cheese grated large for top 1 cup chopped scallions 1 large can sliced black olives (drained) 2 avocados, diced 1 head iceberg lettuce, shredded 3 fresh tomatoes, sliced thin For the cooking oil, we use combo of corn oil-butter or lard. Use what you like.Enchilada saucewe make our own or useLas Palmas (can). Directions: This is a great dish to make with family or friends helping and sipping some zesty Margaritas. Start by adding some cooking oil in a large skillet on medium heat and add the chopped yellow onion... as it turns translucent, add the ground meat, turkey or substitute... add the garlic and the spices and cook until nicely browned. Remove to drain on kitchen paper. When ready to use, add the chopped cilantro or parsley and place in bowl on the assembly line. Now prepare the other bowls filled with the following ingredients... Cheddar & Monterey cheese sticks, Parmesan cheese, chopped scallions, black olives sliced, avocados diced, iceberg lettuce shredded and fresh tomatoes sliced. Now the process begins: You will need two skillets, one you will already have with the remains of cooking the meat. In this pan add the 4 cups of sauce or 2 cans of Las Palmas and the large can of diced tomatoes. Heat this to simmer. In another skillet add cooking oil to fill bottom by 1/4 and heat to slightly smoking. Now take the tortillas, one at a time and dip them into the sauce tenderly with tongs and then be careful and step back and put the tortilla in the hot oil for only ten seconds and then delicately place in a non-reactive baking dish (this can be tricky and takes a little time to get it right). Now it is ready to fill with each ingredient in the assembly line. Do not pack too tightly and roll so that the seam is toward the bottom. When the enchiladas are all filled, take the remains of the sauce and add additional diced tomatoes if needed. Taste for spices, add salt and pepper, and then pour over the enchiladas, finishing off with a generous sprinkling of cheese. Now these can sit in the refrigerator until one hour before serving or just pop them in a 350-degree oven covered with foil and bake for 45 minutes. Remove foil and bake for another 10 minutes to create a slightly brown & bubbly finish. To serve, we have all the classic accompaniments: rich chili beans, Spanish rice, sour cream, chopped cilantro.

ObamaCares Data Mining

As if it werent already wildly unpopular enough, we now learn that ObamaCare will include a massive data mining operation empowering the Department of Health and Human Services to collect vast amounts of personal information via the IRS, the Veterans Administration, the Defense Department, and the Social Security Administration. This information will be placed in the hands of a group of as-yet-unidentified patient navigators who will assist ObamaCare enrollees in the 34 states that have refused to set up their own insurance exchanges. These navigators will serve as the public face for ObamaCare enrollment, but they will be woefully unprepared for the task that awaits them. Training consists of 30 hours or less of online schooling in the gargantuan law, and navigators need not have any prior experience in the insurance or health care fields to apply. In fact, HHS currently has

no plans to administer even background checks on the navigators it hires (what happened to e-Verify?), and it may rush some of them into the field before training is completed. If ObamaCares miserable track record to date and the recent NSA and IRS scandals are any indication, were in for a real disaster. In related news in California, Anthem Blue Cross, the states largest insurer for small businesses, has announced that they will not participate in the ObamaCare small business exchange. Anthem now joins UnitedHealth and Aetna in opting out of the states individual consumer pool, a development that threatens the exchanges viability in the marketplace. Elsewhere, Indiana insurance regulators expect a 72% hike in premiums after ObamaCare kicks in next year, and Ohio expects an 88% hike. Republicancontrolled states appear to be taking a bigger hit because Democrat-controlled states are already more highly regulated and expensive, so the impact of ObamaCare is somewhat muted. But the Government Accountability Office is warning of insurance premium rate shock in all 50 states. So all in all, it was just another dreadful week in the implementation

ing havoc as a drug dealer, loan shark, bank robber, hijacker, and high-end securities thief. Drawing on 1,153 pages of newly uncovered secret memos which went to every FBI director from J. Edgar Hoover and Louis Freeh Peter documents how more than half of Scarpas homicides were committed from 1980 to 1992, when his handler was former FBI supervisory special agent R. Lindley DeVecchio, the celebrated case agent on the 1985-86 Mafia Commission prosecution, who ran two organized crime squads in the FBIs New York office. After four murder charges against

DeVecchio were dismissed in 2007, a New York state Supreme Court judge described the FBIs association with Scarpa as a deal with the devil, says Peter, a seasoned ABC Network correspondent, who worked on 20/20, Nightline and World News Tonight. In the interest of full disclosure, I was a commentator on ABCs World News Now for many years. During his lengthy time as an informant, the FBI facilitated insurance rewards and paid Scarpa fees that equal more than $1 million, adds Peter, who is also a research scholar at the Orfalea Center for Global and International Studies...

Horsing Around There were a lot of neigh-sayers present when veteran actor Tab Hunter celebrated his 82nd birthday. Tab, who co-starred with Sophia Loren, Debbie Reynolds and Natalie Wood in his Hollywood heyday, as well as having a Number One with the song Young Love in 1957, is about to hit the big screen again in a documentary based on his 2006 New York Times best selling autobiography, Tab Hunter Confidential: The Making of a Movie Star, which is being produced by his longtime companion, Allan Glaser, Neil Koenigsberg and Jeffrey Schwarz.

Tab Hunter celebrates his 82nd birthday with Jane Burkemper, host Mary Jo England, and Hilary and Bill Neiman

The party was a strictly horsey affair, Allan, a film historian and collector, tells me. It was a small group with just Tabs equine oriented friends, given his big day coincided with the Santa Barbara National Horse Show at Earl Warren. Hilary Burkemper rode Tabs horse, Harlow, and won a ribbon that day. In the evening a small dinner party was thrown at the home of Mary Jo England, with guests including Jane Burkemper and Billy Neiman. Book Bash

Author Peter Rand and Daphne Moore at Tecolote

Prolific author Peter Rand, a former longtime resident of Montecito and Carpinteria, celebrated the publication of his sixth book Conspiracy of One with old friends and acquaintances at Tecolote, the lively literary lair in the Upper Village. It was so nice to get back and see everybody, says Peter, a former editor of Washington Monthly and a regular reviewer for The New York Times Book Review, who now teaches journalism at Boston College. His research for the book, which involves a secret plot against FDR and Winston Churchill, began when he uncovered a small amount of material in the late 1990s, which involved further research in Moscow and London,

he Santa Barbara County Planning and Development department is soliciting comments by the public regarding the Montecito YMCAs proposed Master Plan update. The environmental document (a Draft Mitigated Negative Declaration) is available to view online; comments should be submitted by Monday, August 12, by 5 pm. The YMCA, located on Santa Rosa Lane in Montecito, has submitted a request for a revised conditional use permit to update the Master Plan for the purpose of renovating, enhancing, and expanding the existing facilities. The revised conditional use permit would allow for the demolition and reconstruction of existing buildings and the construction of several new buildings, as well as the continuation of existing programs including a selection of recreational, fitness and wellbeing programs for all age groups and licensed preschool and afterschool daycare programs. The proposed project includes an enhanced main building, a new preschool building, a natatorium with a new indoor pool, and a

gymnasium to cover the current outdoor sports court on the 4.25-acre site. The YMCA currently operates their programs with approximately 10,732 net square feet of interior space in two buildings, plus approximately 1,725 square feet of covered exterior spaces and freestanding storage units. The property also hosts an existing 12,797 square foot outdoor sport court with night lighting. The proposed project, designed by architect Mark Kirkhart, will more than double the current square footage of the YMCA. The current membership would also be expanded from 1,550 to 2,050. The plan to renovate the YMCA has been in the works for over two years; early on in the process many residents, as well as the Montecito Association, voiced concern over the style and scope of the project. After taking into consideration public comments, Kirkhart modified rooflines, changed building facades and colors, and modified the view of the gymnasium from San Ysidro Road. Most of the changes have been cosmetic in nature, Kirkhart told us earlier this

week. Weve also made significant changes to the gymnasium, he said. Montecito Board of Architectural Review has already given the green light on the project, saying the addition of board and batten siding and the modification of the rooflines and color scheme make the mass of the main building approachable and compatible with the neighborhood. The project is expected to be seen by the Montecito Planning Commission, who will take up traffic and usage issues, in the fall. The Countys issuance of a Negative Declaration affirms the opinion that any significant adverse impacts associated with the proposed project may be reduced to a less than significant level with the adoption of mitigation measures, and that the project does not require the preparation of an Environmental Impact Report (EIR). The Negative Declaration prepared for the project identifies and discusses potential impacts, mitigation measures, residual impacts and monitoring requirements for identified subject areas. Due to the non-complex nature of the project, a separate environmental hearing will not be held, according to the staff report. Kirkhart tells us once the CUP is revised and the project is approved by MPC, fundraising will begin to pay for the renovation, which will take

place in several phases. The YMCA plans to remain open and operational throughout the construction; it is likely the first phase of the project will include both the gymnasium and the preschool, followed by the main building. The natatorium and pool will be the final phase. To do all of the things we want to do, it takes a long time to get through the county process, Kirkhart said. It takes a long time to get it right. The project site is located at 591 Santa Rosa Lane at the intersection of Santa Rosa Lane and San Ysidro Road. The document may be obtained and all documents referenced in the report may be reviewed at Planning & Development offices located at 123 East Anapamu Street, Santa Barbara and online at www.sbcountyplan ning.org/environmental/active.cfm. Draft documents are also available for review at the City of Santa Barbara library.

here in Santa Barbara could you find a Venetian gondolier in full regalia paddling his gondola and singing Italian love songs? That was the coup de grace of Lotuslands annual sold out gala fundraiser Romancing the Garden. The theme was all about love. After all, creator of Lotusland Madame Ganna Walska had six husbands. As we strolled through the gardens, there were small easels with love quotes all around. One said Love may be blind, but it can find its way around in the DARK. Another, When I first saw you, I fell in LOVE and you smiled because you knew. Further down the path there were guy poets spouting sonnets of romance. Then the Japanese Garden pond appeared with the gondolier. What a surprise! Did he come from the yellow pages? Some of my favorite memories of living in Italy were Italian love songs sung in many of the restaurants. Further at the lily pond there were two couples from

her dad was also Commodore a few years back. Regatta chair Tom Parker told the audience, We have a head start of over $110,000 already. Proceeds from the Regatta go to VNHC. We help anyone that needs us regardless of their ability to pay, said VNHC president CEO Lynda Tanner . Since they opened their new 18-bed Serenity House in 2011, they have had over 500 patients. The youngest was 18 years old and the oldest 103. Jeff and Steve Berkus told of their experience when their architect dad was dying and they could no longer keep him at home even with VNHCs

The party animals were out in force when one of Fiestas most popular events, Celebracion de los Dignatarios, was held at the Santa Barbara Zoo. More than 2,200 turned out for the hilltop hoopla co-chaired by Greg Wilson and Joanne Funari featuring 33 eateries and vineyards, which was expected to raise $80,000, split equally between Old Spanish Days and the magnificent menagerie. As usual, local ABC affiliate KEYT-TV was well represented with meteorologist Alan Rose broadcasting the weather reports from the bustling site for the nightly newscasts and interviewing the festively festooned foodies.

This is always great fun to be part of! says Alan, who is a regular at the boffo bash. Among the throng checking out the colorful scene were mayor Helene Schneider, Paul Orfalea, Tom Reed, Craig Case, Colin and Sharon FriemWallace, Chris Lancashire, Catherine Gee, Bilo Zarif, Clas Lensander, Salud Carbajal, Mindy Denson and Frank Hotchkiss... Magnificent MAW Music Academy of the West staged a wonderful version of Mozarts popular opera The Magic Flute at the soldout Granada.

The production, with Warren Jones as conductor and David Paul as stage director, was a thoroughly entertaining two and a half hour show, with baritone John Brancy as a delightfully mischievous Papageno, the impish bird catcher, and soprano Julie Adams as the alluring Pamina, backed by 23 academy fellows chosen from 600 applicants in the voice program. Tenor Andrew Haji as the princely love interest fit the bill perfectly, along with Matthew Anchel as Sarastro and John Kapusta as Monostatos, while sopranos Claire de Sevigne as Queen of the Night and Emily Siar as Papagena added admirably to the cast.

Charles Corcorans ambitious set designs were impressive, as was surreal Ben Pilats lighting, but much kudos has to go to Stephanie Cluggish for her innovative costume designs. It is no wonder The Magic Flute is one of the most produced operas in the world! Earlier in the week it was time for Japanese violinist Midori to shine brilliantly at Hahn Hall playing three works by Bach.

Public intoxication in Summerland

Montecito Planning Commission Chair Sue Burrows and Commissioner JAmy Brown have helped organize an interactive informational presentation to get the community prepared in case of an emergency

Tuesday, 30 July, 6:21 pm Deputy Welch was dispatched to the intersection of Hardinge Avenue and Ortega Hill Road in Summerland. At the bus stop at the intersection, several citizens were waiting for the bus; they pointed the deputy in the direction of a man who had been urinating in public. The deputy noted the man smelled of alcohol and was intoxicated. The man admitted to urinating in public and drinking too much alcohol. He was arrested for public intoxication in the interest of his safety and the safety of the community. He was housed at the Santa Barbara County Jail pending sobriety.

The Commission will receive a community disaster preparedness report and an emergency management joint presentation by the Montecito Fire Protective District and the Santa Barbara County Office of Emergency Services. Guest presenters will include Montecito Fire Chief Chip Hickman and Richard Abrams, CEM, from the Countys Office of Emergency Management. Possible topics include current conditions of High Fire Season, fire prevention activities, notification systems, and neighborhood planning. The discussion will also include pet evacuation, family communications plans, 72-hour emergency preparedness supplies, and how to pre-planning an evacuation. We believe a safe community is a well-planned community and, because this is a very dry fire season, we felt the August meeting of the MPC would be an opportune time to hear about local emergency preparedness from both Montecito Fire District and the Countys office of Emergency Management, said MPC chair Sue Burrows. The public is invited to attend the meeting, which starts at 9 am. Questions from the audience will be taken both before and during the presentation; residents watching from home can also participate by emailing questions during the presentation. Questions may be addressed to Commissioner JAmy Brown at j.amy. brown@att.net. The presentation, which will be attended by First District Supervisor Salud Carbajal, will begin at 9 am on August 21, and is expected to last 1.5 hours. The MPC meetings are held in the Planning Commission Hearing Room, Room 17, County Engineering Building, 123 Anapamu Street. The presentation will be televised live on Cox Channel 20.

Last month, Laguna Blanca School announced the appointment of Andy Surber as the new Head of Lower School. Mr. Surber brings over 15

Laguna Blanca Head of Lower School

years of experience in education, and began his new role at the Montecito campus on July 1, 2013. Laguna Blanca Board of Trustees formed a Search Committee, composed of trustees, Lower School parents, teachers, and administrators, to identify outstanding candidates. We believe Andy is a terrific fit to lead the Lower School into the future and build upon its strengths, said Search Committee Chair and Board Member Hani Zeini. The committee was duly impressed by Andys positive energy, focus on child development, collaborative leadership skills, and administrative experiences, and we believe he will be a tremendous asset to our school. Mr. Surber comes to Laguna Blanca from Grace-St. Lukes Episcopal School in Memphis, Tennessee, where he held the position of Head of Lower School for four years. He also has elementary teaching and middle school leadership experience at Phoenix Country Day School in Paradise Valley, Arizona and at Dakota Elementary School in Dakota, Illinois. In addition to administrative and classroom duties, he has coached track and field, basketball, and football at the middle and high school levels. Mr. Surber earned a B.S. in Child Development from Rockford College and a M.Ed. in Educational Leadership from Northern Arizona University. Im thrilled to be joining this wonderful school community, and Im looking forward to meeting each Laguna Blanca student and their family, Surber said. Mr. Surber and his wife, Mary, have two sons, Keenan (9) and Logan (7), and a newly adopted boxer named Stryker. He and his family look forward to relocatingto Santa Barbara from Memphis this summer. Families interested in meeting Mr. Surber and learning more about Laguna Blanca are welcome to drop by for a chat and enjoy a summer tour. For information, call Kim Romanov at 969-1085 x415. MJ

Coming
On Their Way To Tahiti


& Going
by James Buckley

Scott Puailoas grandfather, who arrived in the U.S. in 1924 from Samoa via a vaudeville troupe called The Royal Samoans, was a founding member of the Screen Actors Guild. I used to do a lot of the dances, like the Samoan Fire/Knife, Scott reveals, but now I have a hard time getting out of the chair, so I just play music. Both Malia Rojas (left) and Lenicia Lopez learned to dance to Tahitian music because both have Samoan blood. Both Malia and her father learned to dance Tahitian style at Tinas Ports of Paradise in Oxnard, run by Scott Puailoas cousin, Tina Tuitama Vainuku.

fter last weeks invigorating Aloha Sunset Cruise onboard the Condor Express, I was still in close proximity to my island gear, so it was an easy costume change in order to attend Charles de LArbres fun-filled Tahitian-themed sunset gettogether on the rooftop patio of the Canary Hotel in Santa Barbara on August 1. The big draw this time was the band and two charming grass-skirted dancing ladies Lenicia Lopez (related to KEYTs Paula Lopez, but not her daughter, she says) and Malia Rojas gyrating to the mellifluous sounds of Aiga (family in Samoan), headed up by Malias father, Scott Puailoa. The other members of the band included Scotts brother Steve Puailoa as lead guitarist and on vocals, Montie Wayne (Were first cousins; our moms are sisters, informs Scott) on steel guitar, Bobby Montanese (a boyhood friend) on ukulele and acoustic guitar, and drummer Jesse Catilan, another friend. Scott plays bass guitar, ukulele and Tahitian drums (called toere). Scott Puailoa is an accomplished

musician but his day job is Director of Golf at the Valley Club in Montecito. When my dad got out of the navy, he explains as we plop ourselves down at one of the inviting tables on the patio, he played football at Pasadena Junior College. He [was offered] a full football scholarship to USC out of Pasadena Junior College, but he hurt his Achilles. It was 1954, and Scott had just been born. My dads coach in the navy was Stan Williamson, Scott continues, and he was coaching UC Santa Barbara at the time. So my dad came up here to play football and I came here when I was eight months old. Scott has been Director of Golf at the Valley Club for the past thirty-six years. His wife, Darcy, was his San Marcos High School sweetheart; they were married in 1975. Scott, who played football and golf in college at the University of the Pacific, came back to Santa Barbara to join his father, Sut Puailoa, who coached football at San Marcos High School from 1960 to 1989 and was head coach for ten years. Scott became

Suts assistant coach, and also began working at the Valley Club. In 1977, I was first assistant and I was going to the PGA Tour school to qualify to play professionally, Scott recounts. But the pro Dick French left and they hired me in 1979 to become the golf professional. Ive been there ever since, he says, adding with a big smile, The Valley Club is a pretty good spot to end up in. The reason for the Tahitian-themed party was to garner interest and excitement towards an upcoming

ten-day Tahitian cruise aboard the Paul Gauguin that will be hosted by Charles and his wife, Barbara. Charles and his brother David de LArbre own and operate the Santa Barbara Travel Bureau; it has been in the family since 1947 and Charles has been with the company since 1974. The cruise will take in Bora Bora, Huahine, Rangiora, Fakarava, Tahiti, and Moorea on the Paul Gauguin, the highest-rated and longest continually sailing luxury cruise ship in the South Pacific. The ship can handle a maximum of 332 guests. Tahiti is just the greatest place in the world, Charles enthuses. My favorite thing to do is rent a wave runner and circumnavigate Bora Bora. On Moorea, we rented a small car and drove around the island, found a little restaurant for lunch, a little wine a little seafood The trip departs Wednesday, November 13; fares begin at $4,441 per person and include roundtrip airfare from Los Angeles on Air Tahiti Nui; it also includes eight hours of rest time in ones own room at the InterContinental at Papeete after arrival and before departure.

directly to the gardens and upkeep. Violinists serenaded guests, with signs along the paths proclaiming romantically, The irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired and Love is a caress furnished by nature, embroidered by imagination, while a gondolier on the lake, suitably oar-struck, burst into La donna e mobile from Verdis popular 1851 opera Rigoletto. Further down the path to the main lawn, where guests had to find Walskas six suitably costumed husbands in a treasure hunting exercise in this case, a free raffle ticket , poets, including doppelgangers of John Keats, E.E. Cummings and Serge Gainsbourg, recited romantic works. Adding to the mix were four members of the State Street Ballet Ryan Camou, John Piel, Leila Drake and Alyson Mattoon draped in white dancing to their own choreography, after which Sothebys auctioneer Eliza Osborne brought her gavel skills to attracting bids for a five-day trip to London, a diamond and white gold ring from Silverhorn and a contemporary art work by Laura Scandrett, which raised $113,000 alone. Among the garden gurus and green fingered guests were Leslie RidleyTree, Brian King, Robert and Margo Feinberg, Robert and Gretchen Lieff, Adam and Penny Bianchi, Jamie and Julie Kellner, Lynda Weinman and Bruce Heavin, Robert and Christine Emmons, Mike and Anne Towbes, Bill and Sandi Nicholson, Harold and Annette Simmons, Carolyn Amory, John and Betsy Waggoner, Henry and Rita Hortenstine, Pat Hinds, Paul Orfalea, Susan McCaw, Tipper Gore and Bill Allen, Steve and Caroline Thompson, Chris Toomey, Morrie and Irma Jurkowitz, Palmer and Joan Jackson, Frank Goss, and Chuck and Stephanie Slosser...

The boffo bash raised around $65,000 towards scholarships for 13 to 25 year old students at John Westleys popular polo school, which has attracted more than 300 students from Westmont, City College, UCSB, Laguna Blanca, Cate, Crane Country Day School and the Thacher School in Ojai, since its formation. Earlier this year a team from Westmont won the USPA National Championship in Texas, beating out players from SMU, Colorado State and Cornell along the way.

t sixty years of age I can finally see and feel the error of my ways. Yes, I ate too much, saved too little, drank too much, exercised too little, watched too much TV, read too little, and failed to learn the Macarena. To put it simply what Alex Trebek has been to trivia, Ive been to the seven deadly sins. Because Im basically a chicken (the fraidy-cat, not the Colonels secret recipe) and reluctant to face what I fear old age has in store for me, Im willing at this time to donate my brain and body, or whats left of them, to any person or corporation thats willing to take better care of me than I have. For the duty of overseeing my future, my new custodians can do with me what they wish, keeping in mind that I have a deep fear of musicals, and I look horrible in Capri pants. If it will benefit humanity, Im open to experimental scientific stuff, providing it has nothing to do with animal cruelty, or full-length mirrors, and as long as it doesnt involve me ingesting kale or beets. It may sound like Ive given up, but I still have longings. I hope any individual who claims me will be kind,

Introducing The iJim

by Jim Alexander

Mr. Alexander, who sold his soul many years ago at what he says was a fair price, continues to search for a buyer for his beatenup, broken-down but under-appreciated body

imagine what they could cram into something my size. I could be the prototype iJim. With a few well-placed microchips and apps, I could be the first walking, talking, pizza-eating computer. Unfortunately, I have very little memory, but Id make up for it with 250 pounds of RAM. So, here I am, available just for the asking. I wouldnt be a complete char-

substitute than I? Strap me into some satellite and send me into Deep Space Nine. All I ask is some vodka to go with the Tang, the complete works of Dave Barry, and a laptop that has the first three seasons of Duck Dynasty downloaded. An android named Heidi would be a bonus. I love sports more than peanut butter on bacon, so itd be a dream come true

gentle, and have a strong resemblance to Sandra Bullock, but Ill settle for a curator who owns his/her own bass boat, and/or golf course. As for corporations, Id gladly hand myself over to 3M, Google, or Playboy Enterprises, but I pray Monsanto isnt interested one genetically engineered Jim Alexander is almost certainly enough.

I love sports more than peanut butter on bacon, so itd be a dream come true if ESPN would become my overseer
ity case I still have skills. I swing a mean paintbrush and can handle a TV remote better than most. I can load a dishwasher and do laundry, on the assumption that someone else separates the colors from the whites. I have mastered three culinary dishes spaghetti, cinnamon toast, and a killer Ramen-baloney casserole that any eight-year-old would gladly give his NERF Centurion Blaster for. I have a six-decade library of jokes, and Im willing to do almost anything for a laugh, again, as long as it doesnt include ingesting kale or beets. I hear funds for NASA have dwindled, and public opinion probably wont let them use chimps anymore. Well, who would make a better chimp if ESPN would become my overseer. Speaking of dreams, Id make a great subject for any corporation doing dream research. I have at least two dreams a week that would make Timothy Learys visions look like cave drawings. Id like to stay local but its not a deal breaker. If permitted to remain in the area, Id appreciate being allowed to visit friends and family a few times a month. Upon further contemplation, once a month would probably be plenty. And an occasional conjugal visit with my wife would be nice. I can hear her reaction to such a visit now Perfect timing. I just finished making a kale and beet salad for dinner. Like I said, NASA, Im your chimp. MJ

Available For The Asking

Id love to be in the middle of a bidding war between Microsoft and Apple. Just think, Mr. Gates, I could be Jimi Microsofts answer to Siri, only without all the attitude. And a Windows Alexander operating system would have to be better than Windows Vista. As for Apple, if they can jam all that technology into a little iPad, just

LETTERS (Continued from page 9)

of a horrible law. Janice Evans Santa Barbara (Editors note: Not to worry; what with all the verbal focus on jobs, jobs, jobs by the lead actors in this administration, we can be assured that the best that can possibly result from all the empty palaver will be a slew of part-time burger-flipping jobs not that there is anything wrong with that that will keep most of those workers away from any employer mandates coming down the pike J.B.)

If a government agency were to solve the problems for which it was created, there would no longer be a need for that agency. Common sense tells us that it is not in their best interest to eliminate their own jobs. Funding is required to perpetuate the need, and additional funding is required as the need expands. Expansion is the product and the goal of bureaucracy. This logic can be applied to all manner of situations and conditions which exist in our society. A need is found or created, defined, and then carefully cultivated until it assumes jungle-like characteristics. A tenacious growth which can be temporarily restrained on occasion, but which will always evade our control and continue to grow. We, the citizenry, are seemingly incapable of taking charge and killing off the growth, and find ourselves continuing to feed the monster on the assumption that one day we will find the solution to the problem. There are some very bad people in America today who, using the same tactics, manipulate us into thinking that ethnic differences are evil. They are not interested in solving problems. They are not interested in us at all. They simply realize that in America, power and financial gain are there for the taking because we are a decent, law-abiding country of fair-minded people. They know they can lie and cheat and disseminate evil propaganda to divide and conquer ethnically diverse groups who react with their

hearts and not their minds. While there are many elements of ethnic polarity which contribute to ill will among the population and exacerbate matters of local, regional and national disagreement, by far the most volatile and deep-seated animosity exists between blacks and whites, and we must ask ourselves why. A slave who became the first legitimate black leader in America; a man highly respected by all, once said there is a class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs partly because they want sympathy and partly because it pays. Some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances, because they do not want to lose their jobs. So said Booker T. Washington. He warned against what he called problem profiteers in the black community. The Good And The Bad Black Americans take heed. Your enemies are not white people per se. There is good and bad in mankind, and therefore, good and bad in both races. Bad people dont solve problems; they are the problem. Your enemies are mostly within your own race. You have good, decent, upright community leaders among you and many of them you cannot name. Your national leaders are self-proclaimed. You follow them because you hear them every day and believe their messages of hatred and division. They are the most vociferous and the most visible. Freedom of speech, one of our most cherished rights, allows them to spew their vitriol with impunity. In many neighborhoods people of ethnic variety reside side by side. They support each other and their families, and practice real citizenship in community matters and are dismayed by the ceaseless racial rhetoric. Their children attend school together, are in the same choral societies, school plays and sports teams. They have slumber parties at each others homes, laugh at the same jokes, pray in the same churches. Truly one nation under God Contrast that with our public perception of race relationships as delineated by television talk shows, newspaper

opinion columns and racists. There are haters among us. You know, for the most part, who they are and yes, they are black and white. They are losers in life. Hiding behind the pseudo-religious and political organizations they create to mask their real purpose: to divide and conquer. They wield words as cudgels to drive good people to their knees. They construct and inflate slights where they dont exist, just as false witnesses condemn those unjustly accused in the courts. They are pathetic and easily defeated if we respect each other. Without a gullible audience, they are nothing. Among the black community, these haters tell you their only purpose in life is a quest for social justice. In reality, they couldnt care less about their brethren. They do not want your problems to disappear; on the contrary, they want them to grow and fester because without your anger and racial animosity, they would not continue to amass the fortunes they covet, or live the lifestyles they do. You, in the black community who believe them and follow them, are their product. They must have you hating the white community for all manner of imagined injustices or their business dries up. Martin Luther King said, We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools. Yet many who profess to be his disciples and constantly invoke his wisdom and compassion, ignore his teachings in their daily lives. Those who are sincere in their desire for unification must make it happen. Nelson Mandela and F.W. de Klerk did. The first step in correcting our misguided attitudes is to never again refer to race when addressing an American issue. Keep your individuality but be an American first. Martin Luther King also said that we should judge each other by our character, but we are being exhorted by contemporary black leaders to judge each other by the color of our skin. Our communities need non-political leaders with a burning desire to rededicate America to the principles upon which it was founded. That is the only cause we should all espouse. None of us are perfect, but some are endowed with more understanding and vision than others. Abraham Lincoln was one such when he uttered these indelible words, A house divid-

ed against itself cannot stand. Harry Wilmott Goleta

The Way It Was




The C.C. Parks: Devotees of Spanish Culture

by Hattie Beresford

Santa Barbara artist Alexander Harmer painted five images that were reproduced in black and white in A Plaything of the Gods.In this seemingly peaceful scene, Joaquin Murieta rests from his labors in the placer fields while his wife, Carmella, sews.

r. Charles Caldwell Park and his wife, Helen, moved to Santa Barbara in 1893 where he set up a medical practice. The son of a Pittsburg steel family, Park established an estate which became known as Tipperary in Montecito. In addition to their many social and philanthropic activities, he and Helen became devotees of Santa Barbaras Spanish past. Charles learned Spanish and enjoyed speaking with the Spanish residents of Montecito. They both worked to preserve the older culture, and to that end, in July 1907, Mrs. Park hosted a dance for 12 couples at the Country Club (then on Channel Drive). In addition to the standard waltzes and two-steps, the event included instruction for the steps of La Jota, a lively folk dance from the Aragon province in Spain. In 1914, Dr. Park began hosting Christmas parties for the descendents of Californio families, mostly elderly ladies. In 1922, the eighth year of the party, a plethora of historic names from Arrellanes to Valenzuela enjoyed a feast of turkey and all its fixins topped off by dessert of mince pie en el modo de la fiesta de Dr. Park. Tables were cheerfully decorated and all the guests received Christmas favors. After dinner the floor was cleared for dancing and the lilting strains of Sobre las Olas (Over the Waves) enticed the guests to respond to the rhythm of the waltz. The old songs were sung, the old dances danced and the old days brought to life. Then Dr. Park was presented with a surprise, a special rendition of Los Pastores, staged by his guests as a way of saying thanks. Performed in the traditional way and using the old words

and music, it featured Juan Calderon as El Bartolo and Francisco Lopez in the dramatic role of Lucifero. In her column in the Morning Press, Julia Redington wrote, The little group of players managed to give the real feeling of the Christmas mystery, and from the moment when they marched in singing Adeste Fideles to the last tableau in which they crooned a lullaby to the Holy Child (El Nino Jess), they played their parts with real skill.

The New York Times review of A Plaything of the Gods, reported, Mr. Gray has endeavored, he says, to paint a true picture of Joaquins life. He exhibits the man as one who, naturally kind and gentle, was so changed by the persecution and brutality he suffered that he became almost fiendish in his cruelty. Alexander Harmer illustrated Parks book. An original of one of these illustrations is part of the current exhibition at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. It and three other Harmer gouache paintings were given to the Museum by Dr. Parks grandson, the late Carl Gray Park, and Carls wife, Barbara, several years ago.

Budding Playwright

Vicious Murderer or Wronged Rebel

Under the pseudonym of Carl Gray, Charles Park was inspired to write two books detailing the history and legends of Spanish California. The first, A Plaything of the Gods (1912), tells the story of one of Californias most notorious bandits, Joaquin Murieta. To this day, Murieta remains a controversial figure. Was he a modern day Robin Hood avenging the wrongs perpetrated against himself and other Californios by the Americans, or was he a vicious killer and thief, taking the fruit of other mens labor and delighting in their slaughter? Legend being more interesting and appealing than facts, Murieta as Righter of Wrongs captured the worlds attention and played on the sentiments of the vanquished

Californios. Almost all Old-Timers in California had a (tall) tale or two to tell of their encounter with the dashing Murieta who had visited every town, stayed in every hotel, drunk in every bar, and had a hideout in every county. In Santa Barbara, legend says Murieta had a hideout up the coast at the old Ortega Adobe at Arroyo Hondo. For entertainment hed ride into Spanish Town in Montecito to attend fandangos underneath the parra grande (big grapevine) at the Dominguez abode. One night as he was gamboling to La Jota with a beautiful seorita, word reached him that the sheriff was coming to arrest him. Acting quickly, he broke a twig off the grapevine to use as a whip, vaulted onto his horse and sped away up one of the canyons. Riding all night, he made his way to a hidden camp at the base of Big Pine Mountain. There he stuck the grapevine in the ground and it took root. Supposedly it is still growing in Grapevine Canyon. 

In 1915 Park wrote a second book, Tales of Old California, a series of short stories set in Santa Barbara. Alexander Harmer is believed to have illustrated this book as well, and Dr. Park became a patron of the arts for those who painted subjects from Old Spanish Days in Santa Barbara. In 1917, Dr. Park developed one of these stories, Doa Perritos, the Dog Woman, into a play presented at the two-year-old Country Playhouse in Montecito. It was called The Atonement and featured local talent in the dramatic roles and included dancing and singing. Dr. Park was much influenced by popular literary, stage and film styles of the times and his Atonement has all the features of a musical melodrama. The Morning Press summarized the plot as follows: The play is written around the tragic story of Felisa Escharren. The plot develops from the incident of Felisas borrowing, in a fit of girlish vanity, a pearl necklace which is the only thing of value remaining in her family, after the wild extravagance of her father, now dead, 8 15 August 2013

In Dr. Parks version of the Murieta story, Joaquin was not killed by California Ranger Harry S. Love who beheaded the corpse and preserved it in a jar of alcohol so it could be identified. Instead, he lives on to endure further outrages, this time at the hands of a Jesuit priest. (Courtesy of Hattie Beresford)

Thus does she atone for having killed and, as the priest receives the gems which are worth a kings ransom, she sinks back dead into the arms of one whom she had formerly known, who had not forgotten her. Heady stuff, indeed, and all accompanied by singing and dancing and a climactic performance of the Contradanza. Best of all, the cast was composed of such Montecito residents as Ester and Gardiner Hammond, Miss Delfina de la Guerra Dibblee, and Mr. Joel Fithian as the amatory ranchman. Dr. Parks play was the high point of the season and numerous dinner parties were given at the hotels, country clubs, and private estates before hosts and guests flocked to the Country Theater for the much-anticipated performance.

Fiesta Special

had dissipated their fortune. Her two aunts, with whom she lives, believe that if ever the pearls are allowed to pass from their keeping, the family will die. For this reason, they are guarded carefully, and kept hidden at the feet of the Madonna, in the little shrine in their home. Felisa takes them from the secret place to wear to a party, intending to return them, but they are stolen from her by an English sailor whom she kills in regaining the pearls. Driven from home by her hardhearted aunt; deserted by her lover, and maddened by the thought of having committed murder, poor Felisa, who is but a child in years, goes quite mad. She wanders and lives alone in the hills, with only dogs for her companions. Fifteen years pass and the great earthquake of 1812 destroys the mission. Felisa is shocked to such an extent that her reason returns. She finds her way to her former home in the village, remembers where the pearls are hidden and gives them to the padre, to be used in the restoration of the mission. 8 15 August 2013

In 1928, Dr. Parks adaptation of A Plaything of the Gods was staged by the Dramatic Branch of the Community Arts Association. It was called Joaquin Murieta and played all five days of Fiesta to rave reviews. In an interview for the Morning Press, Dr. Park said, I think that people should know something about Murieta. He is one of the great figures of Old California history. Park admitted that since he wrote his book, he had heard many conflicting stories regarding Murietas life, but he believed his to be the most authentic. He also said, I think that it is a fine thing that we can give the play here using the Old Californians in the cast. It will assure us of the real songs and dances of the native people. Charles Meredith, a well-known leading man of the time, came to direct and play the role of Joaquin Murieta. The cast numbered 140, and between the singing, dancing, costumes, and set, the entire production approached extravaganza status. The reviews were glowing: From the moment the curtain went up until it fell down on the last scene, Joaquin Murieta, Santa Barbaras

own play, adapted from the original written by Dr. CC Park and enacted by descendants of many of the families whose lives the play depicts, held the audience in a grip that at times was too tense to be comfortable. It sounded the whole gamut of emotions: joyous gaiety, gripping love scenes, tragedy, revenge, and the undying devotion of a mother who could not forget her dream for her child. The scene was colorful and picturesque in the extreme. Crowds gathered before the doors were opened and thronged the entrance at the street. Practically everyone attending was in Spanish costume in keeping with the stage settings and costumes. The scene was like a leaf taken from an album of the days of 49.

There are some who may quibble with Santa Barbara High Schools iconoclastic Drama Department head Otto Layman that he sometimes chooses material that might prove too challenging, too risqu even, for a high school production, but he plows ahead anyway; he knows his students perhaps even better than some of their parents. At least, Otto really,

His latest challenge is Cabaret, the musical, and the first of what Otto presumably hopes will be a yearly Summer Stock production, headed up by students from all around Santa Barbaras high-school universe, a last hurrah for many of the seniors if you will. Cabaret, produced in conjunction with Upstage Left, is a tough show, in that it deals with the rise of Hitler and the tragedy of Germanys Jews, along with an examination of

Castanets And Caballeros At The Courthouse

One of Santa Barbaras treasures and a National Historic Landmark is the Courthouse, yet there are no funds to maintain the historical pieces. That is why the Santa Barbara Courthouse Legacy Foundation (SBCLF) is so important. Those are the folks who raised funds to replace the iconic fountain at the entrance as well as the renovations to the clock tower. Their next project is the whole Mural Room, which is deteriorating. The drapes have been there since the l920s.

Introducing Falkor Montecitos Eric Schmidt has taken the wraps off his latest venture an ocean research vessel. Named the Falkor, the ship was bought by the Schmidt Ocean Research Institute and underwent a threeyear, $94 million retrofit before being unveiled last week in San Francisco. It was built under the guise that researchers will be able to use it free of charge, with the only caveat being 8 15 August 2013

that any findings are shared with the public within two months of the research trip, according to Forbes. Eric, who bought comedienne and Oscar host Ellen Degeneres estate, says they have received 120 applicants for the seven slots available. Named after a character from The Neverending Story, the Falkor last year used sonar to help find the S.S. Terra Nova, a polar exploration ship that sank off the coast of Greenland in 1943. The ship was originally built in 1981 as a fishery protection vessel and underwent an extensive rebuild from 2009 to 2012 and can go on voyages as long as 28 days. The most important element about the character is that he was really lucky, says Erics wife, Wendy Schmidt. The oceans are in trouble. They have absorbed so much carbon dioxide that they are destroying coral reefs and the bottom link of the food chain. When we spill in the ocean, were disrupting a generation of living species. Having just finished a high-resolution mapping of reefs off the coast of Honduras, the Falkor is now heading to Hawaii, where it will study a newly forming island... Details on Diana British heiress Jemima Khan claims the late Princess Diana was so besotted with heart surgeon Hasnat Khan that she actually considered ditching the U.K. and moving to his homeland of Pakistan. Jemima, daughter of the late tycoon Sir Jimmy Goldsmith, says the ex-wife of Prince Charles sought her advice during fundraising visits to Lahore. She wanted to know how hard it had been for me to adapt to life

in Pakistan, Jemima, who was married to Pakistani politician and former cricketing ace Imran Khan, tells the September issue of Vanity Fair. Indeed, Diana was apparently desperately keen to impress Hasnats immediate family, especially his mother. But in spite of her best efforts, it would appear that this second love would see the princess yet again falling on the wrong side of an influential family. Even though Diana had an aristocratic lineage and was mother to the heir to the British throne, Naheed Khan was unlikely to approve of her son contemplating marriage with an English woman. For a son to marry an English girl is every conservative Pashtun mothers worst nightmare, says Jemima. You send your son to be educated in England and he comes back with an English bride. Its something they dread. Though the couple discussed marriage and children, the relationship fell apart around the time she met Dodi Fayed. And, as they say, the rest is history...

ore than 100 runners are expected to compete in Santa Barbaras toughest 5K race Thursday, August 15, beginning at 6 pm at the Westmont track. The fourth annual Westmonster, part of the 2013 Santa Barbara Athletic Association Grand Prix Series, is a fundraiser for Westmont student-athlete scholarships. The course, which climbs 284 feet, weaves through Westmonts beautifully wooded campus in the Montecito foothills. A free childrens 1,000-meter race will follow the Westmonster. Dinner will be provided for all participants after the races. We wanted to make it different since we know there are a lot of races in town, says Dave Odell, Westmont athletic director. We developed into the course this big hill, which is kind of a monster. Its very steep, probably a fifteen percent grade. So its a play on words: were Westmonsters and we

Twenty first-year Westmont students will meet on campus August 8 before heading into the California wilderness on a unique 12-day orientation program. TheInoculumtrek begins in the Eastern Sierra town of Bridgeport and winds around many 10,000-foot peaks in the Toiyabe National Forest. The students will be backpacking, rock climbing, and going on an overnight solo,says Eileen McMahon McQuade, associate professor of biology and Inoculum director. They are also scheduled to climb an 11,000-foot peak on the Sierra crest. Faculty accompanying the two student groups are Kaitlin Jones, biology instructor and lab coordinator, Robin Lang, outreach and public services librarian, and Eric Meyer 03, a doctoral candidate in theology at Fordham University. Students, who lead discussions on two books during backpacking breaks and write a paper later in the semester, earn two units of academic and physical education credit. The Inoculum experience was begun in 1974 by alumnus Dave Willis 74, who is coordinator of Sierra Treks, a program that seeks to build Christian faith through wilderness experiences. Willis coordinates the mountain phase of the Inoculum program every year with a team of logistics staff and trip leaders, many of whom are also Westmont alumni or faculty/staff. Two Sierra Treks guides lead each Inoculum student group. Participants get to know some other students they can rely on during the toughest first few weeks of school because of what theyve done together in the mountains, he says. It helps students learn to explore, enjoy and protect wilderness. We hope students will get past thinking that wilderness is merely to be survived and finish Inoculum feeling theyve thrived in the wilderness, Willis says.

THE WRITE STUFF


Who Buys Books?
by Susan Gulbransen

Tecolote Book Shop manager Mary Sheldon with Herb Simon, one of the Montecito bookstores three co-owners

ust who goes into a bookstore and buys a book these days? Who clicks onto the internet and orders one? This profile is elusive because firms that research it require a fee for access. Being a Cheap Charlie, I instead played the Google game and came up with scattered statistics about who that book-buying junkie might be. She (64% of buyers are women) is about 42 years old, according to Bowker Marketing Research in 2009. So much for the stereotype that only older adults buy books and read. Generation Y, those born between 1979 and 1989, spent the most money on books (30% of book spending in 2011). They took over the book-buying leadership from Baby Boomers, according to Bowkers latest statistics. The older generation, or Matures, come in third. More than 40% of Americans over the age of 13 bought at least one book that year. The average book buyer ends up with 12 new books a year. A fifth of all purchases were for childrens books, a most heartening number in my book. At the Santa Barbara Writers Conference in the early 80s, local resident Clifton Fadiman spoke about book buying. A board member of Book-of-the-Month Club since its inception in 1926, he had a handle on who was buying what. According to him, the mystery genre had reached its peak in the 80s decade and would decline. Not so. Mysteries are stronger than ever with women buying 60% of them. Fiction continues as a big seller, 8 15 August 2013

especially on e-books. The biggest nonfiction area for print and electronic is biography and autobiography, including memoir. That tells me we still love to stick our noses into others lives.

The Montecito Market

Who buys books in Montecito? One of Santa Barbaras oldest bookstores, Tecolote Book Shop, began in downtown Santa Barbara in 1925. Located on De la Guerra Plaza then, with a large, tall window overlooking the Plaza, Tecolote advertised itself as a bookseller and lending library;

in other words, it rented out books, a common practice then. In 1954, Tecolote sold to owners of Montecito Book Shop. They closed up the Santa Barbara store in 1970 and combined the two and became Montecitos only bookstore. Tecolote still offers a comfort spot for residents to peruse and perhaps buy books. I ask manager Mary Sheldon at Tecolote, Who buys books in Montecito? Her eyes light up conveying the message that she knows her customers well. She says local book buyers are almost evenly split between men and women. They come in after reading a book review, seeing it on The New York Times bestseller list or hearing about the book from a friend. Her buyers often purchase books as gifts. We have lots of kids coming in, Sheldon says, sometimes with parents, sometimes on their own. At a certain age, about thirteen, we lose them in part because they have so much reading for school. They also get busy. A few good readers keep coming in or parents buy for the kids. When they get to the young adult level, I see them again. We do well with that age group. A common topic among active readers is the use of electronic readers. She says, I sense a decreasing use of Kindle and electronic readers. Bookstores are seeing a slight increase in hard print sales. I personally like to have a book in hand. People find with electronic readers, they cant give the book as a gift or share them. The topic of what is selling this summer comes up. Sheldon looks around the room and smiles with a cat-ate-the-mouse look of satisfaction. Her list includes A Dance With Dragons by George R.R. Martin (author of a Crown of Thorns), Beautiful Ruins by Jess Walter, Whered You

Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple, The Language of Flowers by Vanessa Diffenbaugh and Tenth of December: Stories by George Saunders. One of Sheldons personal favorites is Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn and Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed continue to sell well. She adds, There is no book everyone wants, but we can always count on another good book coming out. Im always looking. Sheldon sums up the book business, Even after twenty-one years, its a pleasure to sell here because of the people. You get to know your customers, what they like and who they are. You have to know about the person to help them choose a book. You recommend a book. Then they come back happy about that choice. Its a great feeling. MJ

Music Academy of the West


efore we get too far down the road, lets clear one thing up: James Gaffigan, who conducts the Academy Festival Orchestra in the final event of the Music Academy of the Wests 2013 summer festival Saturday night at the Granada, is not Jim Gaffigan, the comedian of Hot Pockets fame, who most recently showed up as the guest in the Not My Job on NPRs news quiz Wait, Wait, Dont Tell Me a couple of weeks ago. Although that hasnt stopped folks from mixing them up. They billed him for my purchase of a new MacBook, and he thought I stolen his identity and was using his credit card, Gaffigan explained. We had a very funny conversation. Now we follow each other on Twitter. The thing is, you really cant blame Gaffigan the comedian for the confusion. After all, unless you follow classical music, it would be hard to discover who Gaffigan the conductor is, since he doesnt even have a Wikipedia page. There isnt one youre right, he said. I dont think anyone has done it. I dont even know how it works. Do they contact you? How do you get one? The absence of a reference on one of the Internets most visited sites is a bit strange, considering that lovers of strings and things on both sides of the Atlantic are quite familiar with Gaffigan. He was appointed chief conductor of the Lucerne Symphony Orchestra and principal guest conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra in nearly 2010, just six years after his international career was launched when he was named a first-prize winner at the 2004 Sir Georg Solti International Conducting Competition in Frankfurt, Germany. Since then, hes served as a guest throughout Europe,workingwith prestigious orchestras in Munich, Dresden, Berlin, London and beyond, while also serving as guest conductor of the Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Minnesota orchestras as well as the Los Angeles Philharmonic, among many others. In fact, hes conducting the L.A. Phil again at the Hollywood Bowl just days before the Granada concert. This week, he returns to Montecito to close out the MAW season for a second consecutive year, following his smashing debut with Mahler 1 last August. On Saturday, August 10, Gaffigan will lead the instrumental fellows in a program of grand Romantic works including the overture to WagnersRienzi, songs from 8 15 August 2013

Mahlers Des Knaben Wunderhorn, and BerliozsSymphonie Fantastique.

Q. How or when did you know that you wanted to conduct? A. I knew at eighteen, but I wasnt sure it would happen. I loved scores, and didnt like being a small piece of the puzzle, a player in the orchestra. Theres so much more to conducting. I had the physicality for it, too... I knew right away when I stepped in front of an orchestra the first time in a conducting class that it felt right. And in a way I feel more comfortable there than any other place. Youve had a lot of success at a very young age. To what do you attribute your accomplishments? The most interesting thing about conducting is everything besides studying the score. Diplomacy is paramount. Its about how you treat your colleagues. I remember the dictators who made things very unpleasant. But then theres the other side, where the orchestra is always making jokes and not respecting the conductor. So Ive always walked the fine line between being friends and being in charge. I worked extremely hard to be diplomatic. And Im also my hardest critic. Im never happy with the results. And thats partly why good things happen. I never settled for anything. I wish I could. My stress level would be a lot lower. You stay very busy, though. Whats that about? Thats a good question. I ask it myself everyday. Im not good at vacations, or having time off, and my wife is upset about that. But I need to be working, doing something to make music with people. I cant just study in a room alone. It keeps me happy and fresh. But I am going to calm down the schedule. Theres only a handful of orchestras that Im still looking to debut with, and otherwise Id rather return to the ones I love. So Im trying to make a schedule where Im not going back and forth between Europe and the U.S. all the time. Can we talk about the program for this weeks concert? Its about balancing artistic desire with what young people can do in that amount of time. You want to challenge them, but not make it too difficult... We thought about a big Wagner concert, but in the end decided on some core repertoire. So we came up with (the Mahler excerpts) because I wanted to work with voice students at Music Academy

Ending this week


Concerts in the Park Santa Barbaras favorite free summertime soire series takes place Thursday evenings in Chase Palm Park, on the beautifully sculpted Great Lawn across from the beach.

Cabrillo Boulevard COST: free INFO: 897-1983 or www.santabarbaraca.gov Ventura County Fair Ventura lies a full county away but only 25 minutes south of Montecito, and the annual 12-day fair is one of the best in the state. Rather than sweltering in Santa Maria or Paso Robles, visitors here are cooled by ocean breezes (make sure to dress in layers) as they wander among the usual fair fare (animal competitions, plant displays, homemaking exhibitions, tons of greasy food, etc., etc.) but also enjoy nightly entertainment included in the price of admission. The final four at the fair includes Santa Barbara-connected Plain White Ts on Thursday, Kool & the Gang on Friday, and the PRCA Rodeo fresh off last weekends

appearance at Earl Warren as part of Fiesta on Saturday and Sunday. Get the full schedule, including hours, ticket & ride coupon information and more online at www.venturacountyfair.org. On stage PCPAs big stage production of the big Monty Python musical Spamalot goes the way of spoiled canned meat, heading off into the ether after this weekends final performances. But that still leaves a few days to catch the knights, maidens and other wacky characters who make up this hilarious song-filled romp through the forest, made all the more charming by the outdoor castle-like setting in Solvang Festival Theater. WHEN: 8pm daily through Saturday, August 10 WHERE: 420 2nd Street, Solvang INFO: 922-8313 or www.pcpa.org

Saturday, August 10
Knight music San Luis Obispo-based singersongwriter Jill Knight might just be the best independent artist around these parts. She writes remarkable songs that impress for both breadth and depth, and she sings them with a stunningly soulful voice that blends Southern belle (Knight hails from Savannah, Georgia) with rootsy Americana. And while Knight has received all sorts of awards and attention from festivals and academies, scored accolades from the likes of India.Arie and toured with Shawn Colvin, David Wilcox, Phoebe Snow, Richard Thompson and Little Feat, among others, shes never really broken through the mainstream. All of which mean we can still see her in places as intimate as the Song Tree Concert Series in Goleta, where they remodeled a church building to serve as a multipurpose music room perfect for Knights show. WHEN: 7:30pm WHERE: Live Oak Unitarian Universalist Congregation, 820 N. Fairview COST: $15, free for children under 16 INFO: 403-2639 or www.SongTree.org with Donna Greene & the Roadhouse Daddies.

Alfred Hitchcock Nights: Eight Classic Films of Obsession, Mystery and Suspense includes screenings of some of the famed directors iconic films, with the downtown screenings taking place outdoors under the night sky at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse Sunken Gardens on Fridays, so you never know what might creep up beside you, or drop down from above. (For the more timid, the films also show indoors every Wednesday at UCSBs Campbell Hall). This week (August 7 & 9): Notorious, Hitchs Oscar-nominated 1946 suspense masterpiece combining an edge-of-your-seat thriller with a deeply romantic love story, as Ingrid Bergman plays a beautiful woman whos recruited to infiltrate a group of Nazis in South America by a government agent played by Cary Grant. How far will she have to go to win them over? Remember to bring blankets and/or low-backed beach chairs and a picnic dinner, if desired, for the Courthouse screenings. Next week (August 14 & 16): The Birds, which even the notoriously stingy Village Voice called A major work of art when the horror film opened in 1963. Tippi Hedren stars as a wealthy San Francisco socialite whose trip to the Bay entangles her in her would-be beaus relationships, while the birds in the area begin randomly attacking people. Are you really sure you want to watch this one outdoors, barely a mile from the ocean?

Stompin at the Stow House The historical Stow House and Rancho La Patera in Goleta doesnt have the ocean just steps away, nor is there a natural, gently sloping hill to provide graduated seating on the lawn. But the tree-lined grounds are stunningly beautiful, providing shade and natural beauty thats clearly conducive to concerts. And while the crowds arent as large for the summertime Music at the Ranch series, that also means a lot more room for picnicking, frolicking, dancing (on an actual portable dance floor, to boot) or what-have-you, to similar sounds that youll find on the beach, albeit with a purely local flavor. This week (August 14): rock, blues and swing

Come hear the music Montecito resident Cheri Steinkellner has already had a busy summer and its only early august. Through her Upstage West company of young actors, the playwright and former showrunner for Cheers directed a terrifically fun production of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) at Elings Park, re-staged for one night only her hopefully-on-its-way-to-Broadway musical Hello! My Baby at Santa Barbara High, and now shes teaming with SBHS artistic director Otto Layman to mount Cabaret. Based on John Van Drutens 1951 play I Am a Camera, which was adapted from the 1939 short novel Goodbye to Berlin by Christopher Isherwood, Cabaret, with music and lyrics by Kander and Ebb, is set in early 1930s Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power. Cabaret is based in nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw. The show represents the first-ever summer production of the nationally-award winning theater program at the school, and features some the areas most-talented high school performers and

Youth & Urinetown Hold on to your bladder Rubicon Theatres Summer Youth Program is reviving Urinetown, the Musical. The theater camps production of the hilarious tale of greed, corruption, love, and revolution plays for five performances only on the main stage in Ventura. With book and lyrics by Greg Kotis and music and lyrics by Mark Hollmann, Urinetown won three Tony Awards on Broadway, winning praise for reinvigorating the very notion of what a musical could be. The story centers around a Gotham-like city where a terrible water shortage, caused by a 20-year drought, has led to a government-enforced ban on private toilets. The citizens must use public amenities, regulated by a single malevolent company that profits by charging admission for one of humanitys most basic needs. Critics raved that Urinetown catapulted the comedic romp into the new millennium with its outrageous perspective, wickedly modern wit, and sustained ability to produce gales of unbridled laughter. Brian McDonald, who appeared in the national tours ofMiss SaigonandForever Plaid and has starred and directed at Ensemble Theatre, directs RTCs version.

I still remember the people who had patience and time for me when I [was coming up]. Its a daunting business, and there are a lot of things they dont teach you at school. At that age, theyre open to new ideas, not cynical at all, and soak up the information like sponges... And this is the cream of the crop in Santa Barbara. Its a beautiful place to be and to work. But Im there for [the fellows], not for vacation. So Im happy to do anything I can do.

of the West. I loved the Mahler last year and Im doing the opera next year, so it made sense to combine them. We picked many different songs to give more than one person a chance to sing with the orchestra. Theres lots of storytelling, sad and happy, and a great variety of music in this, call it mini-Mahler. Berliozs Fantastique has fantasy and stories and psychotic colors, which young people invariably love. Its the (classical) equivalent to the Beatles Sgt. Peppers, when they went through the drug experience. And the Wagner, his Rienzi was a failure as a long opera, it just didnt work as a piece, but the overture is a masterpiece. Its early Wagner at an extremely high level, with beautiful long tunes; the strings get to bang their wood in a way that sounds like a skeleton and the brass and percussion also have a good time. Its a great opener. On the final Friday last year, I saw you spending quite a bit of time in the afternoon meeting informally with the fellows, answering all of their questions. It seems like you really enjoy working with young folks in every aspect, not just the conducting.

Collaborative pianist Tania RiversMoores bio mentions that she is studying neuroscience at Harvard, which would seem far-fetched for someone serious enough about music to attend (and get invited to attend) MAWs summer festival. But it turns out its not that unusual for these young artists to have such disparate interests. After a masterclass just two days into the 2013 festival, Rivers-Moore, 19, and Emily Williams, her 26-yearold violist partner in the Walton sonata, talked about the Academy and their non-musical pursuits. On studying science: Williams: I went into Indiana as a pre-med. My intention was to have both options, because I couldnt envision not doing music but I also really loved science. I still would if I could live two lives simultaneously. But as I went along it was increasingly difficult to do both as well as I wanted to. In the end, music was more the thing that I couldnt imagine my life without, but I did do all the pre-med requirements. So I could at any point pursue that. Its comforting that I could take the MCAT and apply to medical school if its ever necessary. Rivers-Moore: Im so impressed to hear that. I cant imagine having the

time to do music if I were taking premed courses. Neuroscience major isnt that super intensive. I have time to practice at least when I dont have finals. You can make your own priorities at Harvard. I came in not knowing what I wanted to major in. I havent always been that passionate about science; I was more of a humanities person in high school. I thought I would be a psych major and music. But I got into neuroscience because Harvard people tend to be scientific. And Im one of those people who cant do one thing. If I had to do music all the time, I would probably lose motivation and not pressure myself. But Ive been practicing a lot more since I got to Harvard than I ever did in high school, because were a minority there. And its really freeing not to be at a conservatory where everybody is doing the same thing. I know that I could stop whenever I want to and still stay in school. But I have decided that I want to do music after all. On choosing their instruments: Williams: The short version is that I was a pianist, and didnt start playing viola until age sixteen. I went into it loving it but with no idea I could pursue it professionally because I was so late. I just wanted to play quartets. I have long arms and fingers and the instrument felt natural. So I fell into it. I would have never guessed that this would have been my instrument I would follow once I chose music. Rivers-Moore: Thats actually really crazy! My story isnt as exciting. I was born in France, and at seven you go to the local conservatory and choose an instrument. I wanted to play accordion because I was seeing people in the streets, and I still think its really cool. My dad had an upright piano at home from taking singing lessons twenty years before, and thats how

it happened... Im in the collaborative piano program here, but I play solo too. And I love chamber music. Its great discussing with people, having a four-hour rehearsal just arguing about how it should sound. I also like the fast pace of collaborative... It feels very natural to me to play with other people. When I go on stage Im never nervous when Im with someone else. Its just fun. Not self-conscious. On coming to the Music Academy: Rivers-Moore: I took a semester off last fall, and practiced solidly. Then I took a Greyhound bus around the U.S. just to travel by myself. I decided I should have a goal, which was to prepare for an audition in New York at the end of my trip. I brought along Brahms F minor duo sonata. I was very surprised when I got accepted because most people have a lot more experience and repertoire than I do. Williams: Id always heard about MAW, and it sounded like the ideal place, with the mountains and ocean nearby because I love nature and being outside. Also my teacher studied with Donald McInnes and she encouraged me to come here. I love playing in orchestra, chamber music and solo. You dont wither away out of sight. I get to learn and grow and collaborate and improve in so many different ways because you do everything... Musicians are often really interesting people. Ive been all over the place, and young musicians are usually focused by the time they come here. But the ones who come here are still curious and I love that. Rivers-Moore plays in the final collaborative piano masterclass on Thursday afternoon, August 8, at 3:15pm in Weinman Hall. Williams will perform in the AFO on Saturday night, August 10, at the Granada. Both may also appear on Fridays final Picnic Concert. MJ
