Cellular Antenna Nodes Complicate Montecito Undergrounding

ell phone antennas installed on utility poles look bad; they reputedly lower property values; and they inhibit attempts to bury utility lines underground. The invasion of cell phone nodes in Montecito began in September 2010, when NextG Networks received county Board of Supervisors (BOS) approval to install eight cell phone antennas in Montecito on poles owned by Southern California Edison (SEC). BOS approval was contingent upon NextGs agreement to voluntarily withdraw pole sites on Santa Rosa Lane and School House Road, both near Montecito Union School. A promise was made to never reapply for these sites. BOS approval overrode a Montecito Planning Commission (MPC) denial in January 2010 of the NextG request on the basis that the antennas and their pole vault boxes created a cumulative negative visual impact. Local jurisdictions are prohibited by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) from denying permits based on concerns about health hazards from radio frequency (RF) emissions in residential areas, but can attempt to deny installations based on visual aesthetics. The county supervisors feared a NextG lawsuit claiming that the eight installations in Montecito did not rise to the level of denial for visual aesthetics, despite vocal opposition from Montecito residents Cindy Feinberg, Sarah Wilson, Shaun Tomson, Ted Simmons, Abe Powell, Cindy Sage, and others. Installation included sites on Middle Road, Sheffield Drive, two on Olive Mill, San Ysidro, North Jameson, Park Lane, and San Leandro Lane. NextG offered to vault the equipment underground for six of the eight sites instead of installing ugly 36 utility boxes on the poles as originally planned. Fiber optic cable was installed between poles to connect the network nodes, which were offered to Metro PCS for its cellular phone service.

Antenna Creep: Bait and Switch

Less than two years later, in April 2012, Crown Castle International acquired NextG Networks for a billion dollars, and immediately submitted permit applications to install 15 additional antennas in Montecito. In January 2013, the Board of Supervisors unanimously approved Crown Castles plan to mount additional larger antennas on eight poles with existing smaller nodes that remained in place. Five locations were added in the existing Caltrans right-of-way on Sycamore Canyon-East Valley Road Route 192. Two new poles were permitted, including a new steel pole and antenna on Santa Rosa Lane above Sinaloa, an area that NextG in 2010 had vowed to spare. Fast-forward another year. In May 2013, Crown Castle submitted applications to the County for an additional 32 node system in the Romero, Bella Vista and Park Lane neighborhoods, and along North Jameson, adding brown or white pole-mounted utility boxes, or above-ground Crown Castle vaults and below ground Edison vaults. Approvals of more and larger nodes and vault boxes have become more or less routine.

Preserving and protecting the Montecito community character from outside invaders is a never-ending battle that often goes on unnoticed by most residents. This summer, Montecito resident Dorinne Lee Johnson, a Director of the Montecito Association and a recently appointed commissioner to the Santa Barbara County Historic Landmarks Advisory Commission (HLAC), noticed an unusual Crown Castle-NextG work crew installing an oversized 58-60 high illegal above-ground vault adjacent to her 1921 George Washington Smith home at the corner of East Valley Road and Picacho Lane.

Missed an important event due a headache or migraine? Had to call in sick because you had such a splitting headache? Had to pass on eating your favorite food because your jaw hurt?

anta Barbaras oldest radio station, KDB93.7 FM has been put up for sale by the Santa Barbara Foundation. The foundation, which has owned the frequency for the past ten years, hopes to relinquish ownership of the station, one of only a handful of classical music broadcasters in the country, by years end, I can exclusively reveal. While the station has been a wonderful addition to the Santa Barbara cultural scene for over eighty years, the rising costs of operation coupled with exploding competition from alternative technologies that provide music and information, led the foundations board to conclude that there are more efficient and strategic ways for it to support the arts throughout Santa Barbara County, explains foundation president, Ron Gallo. Weve been looking at it for several years because of this changing environment. The station was worth around $4 million five years ago, but just $1.25 million more recently. Very much a diminishing asset and we do have a fiduciary responsibility as a foundation. We need to support things and arts get between 38 and 40 percent of funding, and KDB has done a very credible job to increase its donor base. But the station has been running at

a deficit. It was around $130,000 last year and we expect it will be more for the current year, possibly $175,000. Unfortunately, although loyal, it is not a young audience. The foundation has already met with a number of philanthropists and organizations to take on the station, which first went on the air as KFCRAM in 1926 and changed its call letters to the current format three years later. Since then it has been bought and sold a number of times until banker Michael Towbes, David Anderson, and Jean and Barry Schuyler pur-

e had the experience of a lifetime while on safari in Amboseli National Park in southern Kenya: we rescued a baby elephant from certain death. Amboseli is a huge arid plain close to Mount Kilimanjaro (across the border in Tanzania). It is known for its elephants lots of elephants. This was our third trip to Kenya. Those who have been know you cant wander around without guides, and for your safety, you rarely get a chance to set foot on the ground, in case some predator is around, like a lion. Guides here are mostly Maasai, who are rigorously trained, tested, and certified. They know just about everything about the creatures that live there. On our cloudy, gray early morning game drive, our guide, Joseph Chege, noticed some zebras looking at something. If zebras look, its usually at lions. A short, bumpy ride took us to an elephant mud wallow. These are pits they make that fill up with water (Amboseli has a high water

Trapped, abandoned, and frantically struggling to climb out was a baby elephant that had fallen in. You may be asking yourself why his family wasnt there to protect him or get him out. Elephants are famous for caring for family members, right? Well not in this case. No one knows why he was aban-

doned, but there he was. There are few things cuter than a baby elephant, and to see one shivering in the cold water, struggling to climb out, and slipping back into the water has got to tug at your heartstrings. It did mine. He was less than a month old. What to do? Fortunately, our guides knew what to do and called the local park rangers to get permission to try to get him out. One guide, Juma, rolled up his pants, jumped into the wallow, and tried to push him up the side, but that didnt work (Elephant babies weigh in at 250 pounds). Joseph then got a tow strap out of our Land Cruiser and Juma wrapped it around the babys body. Joseph pointed at me and I grabbed one end, Joseph the other. We pulled, Juma pushed, and with assistance from some of my fellow tourists, we pulled the guy up the bank on his side to freedom. He was quite a load. But, my god, we just rescued a baby elephant from certain death, and that makes you feel pretty damn good. But it wasnt over. The little boy (as we discovered) wanted to flee, but he was exhausted and soon settled down. I could actually feel his body warm up. Pretty soon his trunk was sniffing around, and he started to suckle on Josephs thumb and then my thumb. They suckle with their mouths, not their trunks. I can tell you it was soft, warm, wet, and toothless. They drink mothers milk for almost three years. He also made baby elephant distress noises now and then. Did I mention that elephants have excellent hearing over long distances? We saw eight elephants way off on the horizon. They were led by a large matriarch, heading straight toward us, and flapping their ears. They heard their baby boy. Uh, Joseph, arent those, uh, elephants coming our way? Our guides were pretty cool about this actually. The idea was that wed drive away, the little guy would see his fellow kind, and they would take over. Goodbye, little dude. But it wasnt that easy. He started running after us, touching the back of the vehicle with his trunk, as if to say, Hey you just rescued me! Dont leave now! But he gave up, turned toward the approaching group, and started running toward them. That didnt go too well. The herd was really nervous about him and they backed up as he approached. Then the big matriarch went over, gave him a good sniff, and bolted away like he was poison. The little guy kept trying to go to them, but big mama gave him a trumpeted warning, turned, and they all ran away. He stood there alone watching them go. Dont worry; this has a good ending. 

The park rangers showed up, some armed with M16 rifles (there are poachers around). It wasnt the first baby elephant theyve dealt with. They knew all the elephant families in Amboseli. Their idea was to find his family and hope hes taken back in with loving trunks. Unfortunately, that didnt work either. They couldnt take too long to do that because he needed to eat. So arrangements were made to helicopter him to an elephant orphanage near Nairobi the same day. During our Kenyan wanderings, we were able to find out that he was safe and healthy at his new home. We even visited him just before we left. The orphanage is the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a non-profit organization that cares for abandoned baby elephants. Over the years, they have developed a baby formula for their charges, and it works well. They feed him every three hours by hand. Hes kept in a stall with a human companion who stays with him 24 hours a day (hes too small to roam around with the older kids). He was named Empaash after the area where he was found. When we visited, he was asleep covered with a blanket. We adopted him and will continue to follow up on his progress. You can read all about the organization by going to www. You can also donate to their cause if you are so inclined. Tourists rarely get to interact with wildlife, so for us, it was a once-ina-lifetime experience, perhaps a bit bittersweet since al-Shabaab militants hit the Westgate Mall in Nairobi the day before. But, hey, we helped save a wild baby elephant. Jeffrey Harding Montecito

A Little Give, A Little Take

There were some interesting takes on both sides, and some fair shots given and received during a recent exchange in the letters section. But a sentence in one editors response did catch my eye: If people are starving as you suggest, then that should be dealt with via welfare (Letters to the Editor, The World As It Is, MJ # 19/39). A close friend was found homeless, and consequently has been staying in our guest quarters for the last few months while restructuring and seeking employment. Seeking employment was not an easy issue, as severe over-qualification seems to be a detractor for the type of jobs found locally. A recent trip through the countys welfare gauntlet brought back the following story. I would recommend the process to anyone who enjoys being a professional victim or has masochistic tendencies.

selves to the full enjoyment of rude interrogation, condescending questioning, and demeaning behavior on the part of the county staff for a solid two hours. It certainly does save tax dollars and helps de-boost morale amongst the unfortunate. The poor really learn their place in the system at the end of the two-hour interview. Owning an old car seemed also to be a major stumbling block. Thus, sans car, one can stumble to work, assuming one has a job. My point: the welfare system has to be tough, but it should also be compassionate. It seems that the ohso-superior staff make it a difficult process for some of those who are structurally out of work and yet overqualified, and consequently, out of funds and on the street. Please Withhold My Name Santa Barbara (Editors note: We can agree here. If the government really wanted to help, it would set up free dining rooms for indigents and anyone else seeking a meal. No pre-qualifications, no information gathering, just food for the hungry. Would some people abuse that? Yeah, maybe, but what we have now, for example in the free lunch programs at public schools, is a system whereby one group of people (lets call them taxpayers) is required to pay for breakfast and lunch for another group of qualified people, and yet those whove paid for the food cannot partake of the food. That seems crazy to me. J.B.)

Its Exhausting

Ken Wallis, the world-famous autogyro expert and pilot, recently died at age 97. He had a huge influence on my life. I had the privilege of meeting him when I asked for his help with my first world ballooning record attempt. He gave me practical advice and so much more. I was thinking of giving up, but he offered me the encouragement I needed and I went on to set the world record. Our meeting turned out to be a crucial turning point in my life, not just for the project, but for my entire career. We kept in contact ever afterwards. He flew in my balloons and I flew in his autogyros both taking off from his wonderful country house, Reymerston Hall. Within the last few months, we had spoken by phone. When do you think I last went flying? he asked me. This morning! he said with a chuckle. In flying, enthusiasm is not enough. I feel he instilled something much more valuable in me: a strong sense of pilot wisdom. I believe that I am alive today, despite decades of extreme experimental flying, because of the attitude I learned at an early stage from Ken Wallis and just a few others. On September 29, there was a memorial fly-in at Old Buckenham, a 10 17 October 2013

Celebrating Ken Wallis

A new study by researchers at the University of New Mexico has again found, asmany other past studies havefound,that car and diesel exhaust emissions put people at highrisk for respiratory illness, including asthma and lung cancer (Letters to the Editor, Breathing 101 Fumes, MJ # 19/35).The more theauto exhaustdensity and the closer people are to the emissions, the higher the risk. Even thoughthis all makes no sense to Frank Hotchkiss, State Street is more dangerous to public health than some of theother streets in Santa Barbara because of the great number of cars going very slowly, or as is the case at busy times, idling their way down.And the people with their kids eating and drinking outside on State Street are effectivelybeing gassed and breathing in diesel particles that lead to illness and death.They are sitting within several feet of the cars! I have been asking City Council to at least test a closure of State Street sincelong before all of you decided to run for the council.It is time for a test. Bendy White is open-minded on the subject and Frank does not believe in the science.Where do the rest of you stand? You owe it to our city to at least test the idea! I am not giving up.

She immediately contacted Santa Barbara Public Works and was told Crown Castle had obtained an encroachment permit from Caltrans for work on State Route 192 Valley Road, which bypassed County of Santa Barbara approvals. In July, County Public Works issued a Stop All Work order and asked Edison to remove its oversized aboveground vault. A month later in August, Ms. Johnson encountered a Crown Castle-NextG installer measuring for a 3rd antenna on her pole at East Valley and Picacho Lane.

EDITORIAL (Continued from page 5)

Overloading Utility Poles Increases the Danger Of Wildfires

On October 21, 2007, three power poles in Malibu Canyon jointly shared by SCE, AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint, and Crown Castle-NextG snapped in high winds, causing live electrical wires to ignite nearby dry brush. Investigators concluded that at least one of the three top-heavy power poles that fell was illegally overloaded with telecommunication equipment. The blaze burned 3,836 acres, destroyed 16 vehicles and 14 structures, and injured three firefighters. L.A. County Fire listed the dollar loss at a relatively modest $14,528,300. Six years later, in May of this year, Edison agreed to a $37 million settlement for its share of the overloaded poles and cross-arms and acknowledged its fire responsibility. Last February, Crown Castle-NextG settled for $14.5 million for its contribution to pole overloading. In September 2012, AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint settled for $12 million. This brings the total settlement for unsafe, overloaded power poles to $63.5 million, plus millions more in legal defense costs. For $63.5 million, Edison and its partners could have easily undergrounded every utility pole and line in Montecito. The dollar damage in Malibu Canyon was only $14.5 million, a pittance compared to the potential $8.4 billion in residential real estate at risk from a wildfire caused by a downed, overloaded, termite-ridden power pole in Montecito. Cell node proliferation, and the difficulty of undergrounding cell phone technology, complicates future Montecito community efforts to underground its utilities. Are the 8,965 residents of Montecito willing to tolerate a growing fire and safety risk for the next 50 years, without a peep of protest to SoCal Edison? At a minimum, the main feeder roads for power and communications need to be undergrounded for obvious fire safety reasons.  MJ

Padaro Lane Shooting
t this months Montecito Association board meeting, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Lieutenant Brad McVay called the recent officer involved in a shooting on Padaro Lane an unfortunate incident. The shooting occurred on Sunday, October 6, in the 3200 block of Beach Club Drive near Carpinteria. At around 7:45 pm, the Santa Barbara County Emergency Communications Center received a 9-1-1 call from a concerned neighbor who reported a possible trespasser at a residence where the homeowner was not present. Three Santa Barbara County Sheriffs Deputies responded to the scene and located a white male in his twenties inside the residence. They received confirmation from the homeowner that no one was authorized to have access to the residence and that any intruder should be arrested. Sheriffs Deputies detained the suspect and conducted an investigation into the trespassing incident. The suspect was interviewed and a loaded handgun was discovered in a backpack that he identified as belonging to him. The suspect was arrested and a tow truck was called to remove his vehicle from the location. At around 9:30 pm, the suspect, who was handcuffed in the rear secure area of a patrol car, knocked out the Plexiglas partition and gained access to the front of the patrol car, which contained several loaded law enforcement firearms. He attempted to flee by driving the patrol car from the area. Deputies gave chase on foot and during the resulting confrontation, a Sheriffs Deputy fired several shots, some of which struck the suspect. He was transported to the hospital and remains in critical condition. Due to his medical condition, the suspect, who has an extensive criminal history, has not been able to be interviewed by Sheriffs Detectives. The Sheriffs Forensics Bureau has confirmed his identity as 29-year-old Jeremy Leon Bordegaray of Cayucos in San Luis Obispo County.As is standard in officer-involved shooting cases, there is also a Departmental Administrative investigation underway to determine if proper policies and procedures were followed. The Deputy involved in the shooting has been placed on administrative leave, which is routine in cases of this nature.

Superintendent Tammy Murphy and Cold Spring School Superintendent Tricia Price discussed with the board the changes in standardized testing statewide. This year, Montecito kids will be part of a pilot program using computers for state tests instead of scantron sheets and pencils. Teaching and test taking is not the same as it used to be, Dr. Price said. Information about the computer assessments is on both schools websites.

Land Trust of Santa Barbara County Executive Director Michael Feeney was in front of the MA board at their meeting, giving an update on the acquisition of the Hot Springs Canyon property. The Land Trust purchased the property in March of 2012, with the original intention of deeding it to the Los Padres National Forest. There have been major issues with the transaction, but Feeney says the two groups are close to finalizing the details. The Land Trust purchased the 462acre, six-parcel property, which was owned by the McCaslin family, for $7,600,000, funded by donations from community members and business organizations. All but 40 acres will be given to the Forest Service. The remaining 40 acres will be owned by the Land Trust, and will be maintained in part by the Montecito Trails Foundation, Feeney said. The last year and a half has been a series of meetings; the Land Trust has had to overcome many hurdles including negotiating a road easement with neighbors on Hot Springs Lane, negotiating changes to water rights with Montecito Creek Water Company, removing contaminated soil, removing rubble including several metal water tanks, and performing fire clearing and maintenance on the entire property. Staff and legal fees have cost the organization close to $50,000, Feeney said. In November, the Land Trusts intention and management plan for the remaining 40 acres will be approved by their own board. Feeney says the Land Trust intends on keeping the property

Historically at the Granada there have been sneak previews of films such as Gone With the Wind and Guys and Dolls. Appearing on stage have been the likes of Charlie Chaplin, Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Henry Fonda, and the list goes on. Two elevators took the guests down to the auditorium for the digital cinema presentation. Sarah and Roger Chrisman gave a lead gift of $100,000 to fund this camera.

in Santa Barbara. It was founded in November 2000 to provide mental health services and outreach programs for lower income individuals regardless of their ability to pay. NBCC has been recognized internationally for its success with its RV Safe Parking and Homeless Outreach Program, most recently in an 11-page article in the July 2012 issue of Rolling Stone magazine, interviews on CNN, Larry King Live, People magazine, the Discovery Channel and more. NBCC works with churches and non-profits to provide safe overnight parking for individuals and their families and pets who are living in their vehicles. Some have jobs but no homes. A safe place to park coupled with social services and case management provided by NBCC caseworkers can be the New Beginning for them. The phone number is (805) 845-8492. NBCC held their dinner gala at the El Encanto for 160 guests. Executive Director Kristine Schwarz proudly told me, The entire evening has been underwritten.

One truly feels a little bit country when you park in gopher hole heaven, a large dirt field with plenty of space for cars, horses, and trailers. The whole event began at 9 am with president Bobbi King in charge of hoof-it and run-it, Dick Drosendahl was hike-it, and Stan Cowell was bike-it. We always joke about the time we took the easy hike and ended up back at the ranch long after the hard hike. You can even rent a horse if youd like to join the horsy set. This year we arrived just in time for the silent auction, music by Steve Woods on guitar, pulled pork tacos, and a Santa Maria style BBQ catered by Los Padres Outfitters. Did I mention the famous MTF margarita bar? Bobbi reminded us, We are entirely a volunteer organization and continually work behind the scenes to make sure this incredible network of trails is well-maintained, protected, and safe for everyone in the community.

chased it in 2001 with the goal of retaining ownership until such time as it could be sold to a non-profit that would keep the classical music format and local orientation. It was sold to the foundation in November, 2003, through a generous donation from Michael. We are actively seeking the best new ownership and hope, but cannot guarantee, it will maintain a classical format, adds Ron. But wed like to get it into the hands of some sort of a consortium to continue it as it is and wed be willing to take less money to do that. The station currently has eight employees, but that number is being pared down in readiness for sale, possibly through a broker. Even if it broadcasts only partially classical music that might work, but we could end up just selling the frequency. On Tuesday, a meeting is being held with members of the arts community at the foundations Chapala Street headquarters to discuss the stations future. Stay tuned... Oprah Goes Househunting As she empties her Montecito mega manse in readiness for her 60th birthday celebrations in the New Year, former TV talk show titan Oprah Winfrey would appear to be house hunting in Hollywood. Last month Oprah, who is getting considerable Oscar buzz for her role in Lee Daniels The Butler, was seen looking at a number of exclusive properties around Los Angeles as sources say she plans to become more involved in the film business. It follows her highly-lauded performance as Gloria Gaines, the wife of White house butler Cecil Gaines, played by Oscar winner Forest Whitaker, in the hit movie. Oprah, says my man with the martini, looked at a private residence at the Montage in Beverly Hills, where a sprawling apartment can cost up to $16.8 million. Each of the 20 residences benefit from concierge services and amenities from the fivestar hostelry, including the spa, and offers private balconies with sweeping views of the surrounding hills and cityscape, as well as a private elevator. But while Oprah liked all the private services, she reportedly ultimately decided against the property because it wasnt separate enough from the hotel and she was worried about privacy. The billionairess then looked at a home in the gated Beverly Park area, home to Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and rocker Rod Stewart. She then headed to Trousdale Estates, where former American Idol

Craigs Cool Car It would seem that communications tycoon Craig McCaws $35 million purchase of the worlds most expensive car 16 months ago may well have been a good investment. Craig, 64, who is number 314 on the Forbes rich list with $1.8 billion, an increase of $300 million from last year, bought a 1962 apple green Ferrari 250 GTO which was formerly owned by British racing ace Stirling Moss, but has just been eclipsed as the record holder as a year older version of the extremely limited model just went for $52 million, a spectacular increase of 533,233.33 percent on its original purchase price. The car, one of only 36 models built between 1962 and 1964, was originally bought by Connecticut-based car collector Paul Pappalardo and recently sold to an unknown buyer, according to Bloomberg. Remarkably, the vintage sports cars value has gone up by 49 percent in the last year alone. It is fitted with a 3-litre V12 engine developing 300bhp meaning a 0-60 mph time of 6.1 seconds with a top speed of 174 mph. The official Ferrari website says: With only a relatively small production run of 36, and with many of the examples produced having a great race pedigree, it has become one of the icons of Ferrari production history, with a revered position in collectors circles.

Why is competitive athletics important at a liberal arts college? Kirsten Moore, who led her team to an NAIA National Championship last year, will talk about the role coaches play in educating students. While she wants to win, she also wants her players to grow and develop in all areas of their lives and to excel in the classroom. The personal disciplines and leadership skills developed through intercollegiate athletics not only help students in their studies but prepare them to be successful in their lives after graduation.

n a perfect Santa Barbara day in September 1913, Captain Cols Vazquez of the Otter cast off from Stearns Wharf carrying a hermetically sealed copper urn containing the ashes of Dr. Jane Edna Spaulding, the much-loved first superintendent of Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. As she wished, a small party of intimate friends consigned her mortal remains to the waters of the Santa Barbara Channel. Upon her death a month earlier, a friend had written, She was a rare woman, strong in her convictions of duty, capable beyond most women, tender and loyal as a child in her affections; always ready to help anyone in distress, never saving herself if she could in anyway add to the comfort or happiness of another. Jane Spauldings contributions to the community were done quietly and without fanfare. Her actions rarely showed up in the newspapers and her activities did not make the Society pages. Consequently, one hundred years later, we know little about her life and work, and much of what has been published is inaccurate. Additional research into her past reveals a brilliant and witty woman who found the courage to break the strictures of respectability to find her true place in the world.

The Respectable Jane Spaulding

Jane Spaulding was born in January 1832 to Stern and Caroline (Dewey) Spaulding in Lewiston, New York, the birthplace of Niagara Falls and the final stop on the Underground Railroad. By 1850, the family consisted of five children and owned a farm of 1/8 section of land. She was born at a time of great change in the United States. The Industrial Revolution was gaining steam, and the Age of Reform tackled issues ranging from temperance to womens rights to abolitionism. As the American frontier continued to expand westward, the family was drawn to new opportunities in Michigan. By 1860, Stern and Caroline were raising sheep for wool and growing wheat, rye, oats and Indian corn in Adams, Michigan, while Jane was living with her uncle Volney who was farming in Palmyra. Stern eventually gave up on farming and moved to Palmyra to run a hotel and sell liquor. Jane, meanwhile, recognized that she had to earn a living. In an 1866 interview, she stated, 

I inherited a reasonable amount of poverty, an inheritance that I have always retained and still possess and which was a constant stimulus to all my efforts. Necessity, therefore, being a continual reminder that something must be done whereby I might earn my bread and butter, I naturally looked around as boys do, endeavoring to find something for which I had some attraction and adaptation. You will probably say that I looked around very much as girls do, when I tell you that the first object to which I was attracted was a young man. The attraction not proving mutual, something else must be thought of and it was at this time that the idea of studying medicine first occurred to me. When she made known her desire to family and friends, her father worried that the work would be too difficult and her friends were aghast! Would she really compromise her respectability in such a way!? Consequently, she said, the idea was for a time relinquished, and I became a respectable school-mum in a stable village school, where I remained for four or five years. During those years I grew wiser, whether my pupils did or not, and concluded that 10 17 October 2013

respectability was an elephant I could no longer afford to carry. Jane left the school to become a clerk in a store and was determined to begin studying medicine. The law at the time required that a medical student had to study medicine with a regularly qualified physician for three years and attend two full courses (years) of medical lectures before he or she could receive a degree. She found a physician who was willing to take her on, and he gave her free use of his medical library. She was especially impressed with his fine manikin and skeleton. Studying a minimum of two hours a day, and continuing to work a full shift at the store, she was surprised to find how much she had learned in a year. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Lucretia Mott had organized the first womens rights convention at Seneca Falls in 1848, and women had made various advances in the years following, but little progress had been made regarding the inequality of pay for equal work. Jane said, I worked [at the store] as many hours a day and did my work equally well as any clerk, and yet received less than half of some of the male clerks I had frequent 10 17 October 2013

controversies with the proprietors during the two years I was in their employ, trying to convince them that I ought to receive as much as a man but they couldnt see it and never did. When I left them, they (very generously as they thought) tendered me a present of $50. I replied that I would accept it not as a gift but as a portion of my wages they had hitherto refused to pay.

Our Dear Friend the Doctor

ing was crowded with an intellectual audience. Commencement speaker Professor Carroll Dunham bid farewell to the class of 15 students and welcomed them as fellow practitioners. He reminded the all-female class that having asserted they were fit to practice medicine, a college was created for them, and now the public would expect them to justify that assertion. Nothing will secure the public esteem as surely as earnestness and single-minded devotion to the profession, he said. Jane Edna Spaulding took these words to heart. That same year, Jane secured her first position as a doctor on Kelleys Island on Lake Erie in Ohio. Its economy, established by Datus and Irad Kelley in the 1830s, was based on viniculture, winemaking, quarrying, and commercial fishing. Initially, Jane lived and kept her office at the home of Captain William Samuel Webb, a Civil War veteran who had married into the Kelley family. Webb had accumulated quite a competency through merchandising and steamboating. The long road to an M.D. hadnt taken the edge off of Janes pixy-like sense of humor. One of her business cards in the local paper stated, Miss

Spaulding, homeopathic physician, cures all infirmities that flesh is heir to, except chronic laziness. Charges depending on how much she thinks she can get. She guarantees the cure will not be worse than the disease. From 1865 until 1873, Jane contented herself with caring for the islanders. A news account from February 1867 reveals that when George Elfers fell off some scaffolding, he was raced to the office of Miss J.E. Spaulding, who skillfully set the dislocated joint and bound up his other bruises without pain to the patient by successfully administering to him chloroform. In January 1872, she was dealing with an epidemic of mumps. Then, on September 27, 1873, the Islander announced, Four of our esteemed fellow citizens, Mr. and Mrs. Webb, son, and the doctor expect to start for California next Tuesday. They go for health and pleasure, and if they like the climate, country, and people, may conclude to remain there. We shall miss them socially very much, and hope they may conclude to return. The doctor, Miss Spaulding, we shall scarcely know how to get

On November 1, 1863, the New York Medical College for Women opened its doors thanks to founder Dr. Clemence Sophia Lozier, and in March 1865, Jane Edna Spaulding of Coldwater, Michigan, graduated with a degree as a homeopathic physician and surgeon. Homeopathy was a popular and increasingly respected form of medical practice at the time mainly because the standard practice of the day often relied on ineffective, dangerous, and, at times, harmful treatments. Patients of homeopaths generally had much better outcomes. The commencement exercises were held at the Athenaeum, and the build-

he Hair Lounge of Montecito will celebrate its one-year anniversary this Saturday, October 12 from 4 to 7 pm and, everyone is invited, says salon owner Pamela Tivnon. The event will include appetizers, wine, cupcakes, music by D.J. Fab, and a raffle for Kerastase and Moroccan Oil hair products. Located in the Las Aves complex of shops and offices across from the Andree Clark Bird Refuge, the Hair Lounge of Montecito is situated in the open-air flagstoned courtyard villagelike setting across from a large fountain among complementary neighbors offering services including Pilates, acupuncture, dentistry, spray tanning, and family health care.I liketo think of it as a one stop shop for all of your wellness needs, says Pamela. Boasting salon services for men, women, and children, Pamela says, We offer all aspects of hair cutting and coloring. We specialize in Great Lengths hair extensions to give you a little extra vavoom, keratin straightening, blow-outs, special occasion styling, manicures, pedicures, and soon to come makeup application. Im following my dream. Ive always wanted to have my own salon. I wanted it to be pretty, and I wanted it

to be pleasing to my clients, explains Pamela, adding that being a salon owner and hair stylist is not even a second career, but a third career for me. I wanted to have an environment in which I can work because I spend more time there than I do at home, and I wanted all of our clients to have a place where they could come and feel at home like they are in a place where they know they will be taken care of nicely. The mother of two daughters, Lynzi Massey (26) and Paije Massey (22), Pamela says she was a stay-at-home mom for many years, and adds, I was a manicurist for fifteen years. I was a pharmaceutical representative with Eli Lilly for eight years, and I was on my way to becoming a teacher, in a teaching credential program working at Montecito Union Elementary School as a sixth grade aid in 2010, when, as she explains, the economic crisis of 2008 occurred, they werent hiring, they were firing in different school districts, so I made the decision to move to Los Angeles and attend Sassoon Academy. I lived there for a year in 2009, graduated, and came back, worked for various salons, and learned what I wanted my own salon space to be like. This is my last career

and I wish it was my first because I love it so much. I dream about it. If Pamela werent doing hair, she would be an interior designer; she personally designed her 1,100 square foot salon. The look and feel of her salon is modern, chic, fresh, and clean. The space includes a 14-foot vaulted ceiling, lots of windows, and two French doors, so tons of natural light spills in from all directions, circulating air and welcoming a breeze.The predominate color of the walls I chose is a sea grey and theyve been polished with a glaze so theyre shiny, says Pamela, explaining that the shine with other design features makes the space feel wonderfully open. Those shiny walls paired with the 12-foot by 12-foot beveled mirror wall by the Takara-Belmont adjustable shampoo bowls reflects light from the front doors and window, giving the appearance of windows everywhere. Wooden floors, white lacquer furniture, and one wall, which is papered in black with metallic drops of beads, pearls, and diamonds, and a mosaic mirrored backsplash all add successfully to her vision.

The seven stylist stations host five full-time stylists, two part-time stylists, and one manicurist in a semiprivate room.My stylists are really what make the salon buzz with positive energy and creativity. I have a great team who has between ten and over thirty years in the business. I feel grateful to have each and every one of them. They all bring something unique. Constance Kronja was the first stylist that followed me and she has a following of over thirty years. Everyone loves her and thinks of her as their sister or best friend. Nicole Goldis the sweetest, kindest stylist and has a very peaceful, humble demeanor with asolid following. Audrey Johnson is just a creative beast. She mixes her potions and comes up with great color combinations and has a loyal following. 10 17 October 2013

Dream Team

Amanda Leone is a meticulous hair cutter and colorist with the sweetness of a Southern belle although not from the south. As for the part-timers, explains Pamela, Donna Kirkpatrick brings thirty plus years of experience. She is seasoned and talented, and is the firecracker of the group everyone adores. Every six weeks she travels to the East Coast where she also has a long-standing following. Carla Ross from Los Angeles trained with Jingles International in London and New York, and comes up here to service her Montecito clients once a month. Lynzi Massey, my daughter and salon manager, is a Sassoon graduate with almost ten years of experience in hair cutting, coloring, and extensions. She is a fashionista and it shows daily in her work and style. And finally, we have Bobbi Younce she is our fastidious manicuring artist, providing manicures and pedicures for men and women. She is meticulous with all aspects of her work; she has a truly refined eye, and a penchant for cleanliness that rivals mine. Pamela says she likes to keep up on styles, trends, and advanced trainings, and when asked why she is drawn to her work says, I like people. I like the feeling I get when I can help somebody, and I absolutely love it when someone leaves my chair and they feel better about themselves. Whether it be about the hair or the friendship or that they were able to relax at my shampoo bowl with a hot towel on their head for a few minutes to get away from the hustle and bustle of life. Pamela says courage, strength, and a splash of fashion sense are important to her and her work, and she wants women to feel their best, and as for the best way to do that, she simply smiles and says, Keep your head, heels, and standards high! The Hair Lounge of Montecito is located at 1807-A East Cabrillo, (805) 695-0100. Appointments can be made with Pamela online at at any time of day. MJ

The William Samuel Webb family and Jane Spaulding arrived in Santa Barbara in October 1873. There being no rail system, they arrived by ship and tied up at one of the two wharfs, the Chapala Street wharf constructed in 1868 by a group that included Dr. Samuel Brinkerhoff or the one-yearold deep water wharf constructed by JohnP. Stearns in 1872.

along without. We shall not be likely to get another physician that will for a long time earn the confidence of the community that she has in the seven years she has been with us. She will make herself popular in any country, and for this reason we shall not expect her to return.

The Webb family and Dr. Spaulding arrived in Santa Barbara on October 10, 1873 and registered at the one-

year-old Occidental Hotel, the largest in the city. Jane and the Webbs stayed with relatives of Captain Webb on the outskirts of town, and Jane quickly acquired three patients. Due to the remote location, she hoped to acquire a horse so she could hang her shingle in town. The Webbs eventually purchased a home on De la Vina Street and the June 1874 edition of the Santa Barbara Press announced, The office of Jane E.

corner of Ortega. In this connection we may say that Miss Spaulding has grown in favor as a homeopathic physician since her advent here, and everywhere we hear her spoken of as a lady of marked ability in her profession. In July 1874, the Daily Press reported, A boy of about 15 years of age, who works for Colonel Bond in the Montecito Valley had his arm broken a few days since by a fall from a colt which he had been riding. Jane E. Spaulding, M.D., set the injured limb, and Colonel Bond and family are enthusiastic in the praise of the skillful manner in which it was set. That same year the California State Legislature passed a Local Option law, which left it up to each community to decide whether to license saloons or not. Jane Spaulding climbed on the bandwagon promoting an end to saloons in Santa Barbara. After mass meetings and much singing of hymns, she and two other leaders in the cause presented a petition containing the names of the requisite number of legal voters, and the question was placed on the ballot. (Santa Barbarans voted to go dry and then largely ignored the new law.) Jane wrote enthusiastic letters about Santa Barbara to her friends at Kelleys Island. The longer I remain, the bet

ter I like it. Mrs. Webb says I like even the dust and fogs and wont admit the fleas are not the most agreeable company Well, what is the use, I came here to live and I am not going to live in a place I dont like. Now about this promised land, she continued, nothing it seems to me can be more enjoyable than this climate. True, it is a little monotonous, but then we can stand the monotony of pleasant days with better grace than that of cold, stormy ones. She reported that it only rained at night and, anticipating Lerner and Loewe by 80 years, said, by nine the morning fog has disappeared. In short, there was simply not a more congenial spot. The Webbs, missing their children, decided to leave in spring, 1875. The previous December, Jane had contracted a painful eye ailment, which she believed was the consequence of a severe cold. She was confined to a darkened room for three months, so painful was exposure to light, and it was feared she would lose the use of both eyes. One eye was completely restored but the other eye only partially. One source (unconfirmed) says that in her later years she lost the eye altogether and had a glass eye. Though her eyes were much better by spring, Jane, too, returned to Kelleys Island.

In August, 1879, Jane Spaulding returned to Santa Barbara for a very short time. She opened an office in the Pierce block (600 block) of State Street and resided at the Arlington Hotel. Eighteen-eighty found her living with her brother Trumans family in Gibson, Illinois. About 1881, the Webb family inexplicably moved to Larned, Kansas, and by 1884, Jane had joined them. Built on the route of the Atchison, Topeka, and Santa Fe Railroad in 1873, Larned was a bustling center of commerce and boasted 50 businesses by the mideighties. Captain William Webb was twice elected mayor of Larned and served as councilman for many years. Jane went into business with Dr. J. M.

On Entertainment
f you dropped into the Granada Theatre in the middle of the Santa Barbara Symphony program this weekend, you might think youd stumbled into a rock concert or jazz gig for just a moment. But that would just be Ted Atkatz, the former principal percussionist of the Chicago Symphony who left to concentrate on his own rock band, romping around the stage playing Christopher Rouses witty Fantasy for Percussion and Orchestra. The modern work by the Grammy- and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer is the centerpiece of a concert pair that also features Wagners epic Tannhauser Overture and Holsts popular The Planets Suite, all part of Wagner, Percussion and Space, a concert that kicks off the Symphonys season with a bang. Music Director Nir Kabaretti, now entering his eighth season at the orchestras helm, talked about the program and the new season in an interview earlier this week. Q. The new series is dubbed Season of Rediscovery. Would you elaborate please? A. A part of our mission is to put pieces of lesser-known music together with those that are well known but with a different perspective. The idea is to try to find a balance between the blockbusters and the pieces that havent had as much opportunity to be performed. So, for example, when we decided to program The Planets, I try to imagine what could speak to that. Wagners Tannhauser has the Venus theme, which is a connection. And the concerto by Rouse was inspired by Wagners Ring Cycle. So its about discovering the connections, tying things together, relating the pieces together from different points of view. Percussion is obviously prevalent in all of the works for this opening weekend. Yes, you hear piano and violin concertos all the time, but not often percussion and its great to explore. Rouses piece is very beautiful. It uses a lot of different instruments, and you get to see the percussionist running from one to another. There are technical issues of where to put everything, and its great to be able to see him (soloist Ted Atkatz) right there in front of me. It also brings up motifs and themes of the Ring, melodically, even though its only being played on tom-tom or other percussion. Its not only a rhythmic connection. 10 17 October 2013

Ted played timpani with us on many occasions. And hes on the faculty of the Music Academy of the West, so hes part of the community. Im always interested in collaborating with other organizations in town and putting together our talent. We all benefit. Lets talk about the rest of the season: there are some interesting programs, starting with Verdis Greatest Opera Hits in January. Its the 200th anniversary of [Verdis] birth also Wagner, who together were two of the greatest composers of their time. Both were born in a time when symphony was the highest form of music a composer could do, but they both wrote opera. I thought it would be nice to dedicate an evening to Verdi, bringing together pieces from different periods of his life. There was an incredible development from his early creations to his last one. So we will play overtures from his opera, and famous choruses, and there are fantastic soloists who will do some of the solos and duets. This is a. new idea for us, and its a way to make us more

THE WRITE STUFF n.o.t.e.s. from downtown


erb Caen, the famous (now deceased) San Francisco Chronicle columnist, wrote about American life. Public library, he wrote, Such a nice pair of words. Right up there with cellar door, back porch, spring training, and bread pudding. Mention the public library to a reader and youll likely elicit an animated response about memories of going to the library as a child. Fannie Flagg, author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Caf, did just that when she spoke recently to a group interested in the new Santa Barbara Childrens Library Project. When I was six or seven, she said, my mother took me to the Birmingham, Alabama public library to get my own library card. That little card allowed me to travel all over the world and meet all kinds of people. At the time, I never dreamed Id have eight of my own books on those shelves one day. Our library started when Miss Sarah Plummer visited Santa Barbara in 1870. She decided to settle in our small town but was dismayed there was no library. Piri Korngold Nesselrod, author of Biography of a Library, described that year in Santa Barbara: cock fights in the square in front of El Paseo. Wooden sidewalks had not yet been laid and grass grew on streets where there was little traffic. The big event of the day was the arrival of the Concord Stagecoach, passing through on its way from Los Angeles to Santa Ynez. Plummer opened a notions store, selling everything from toys to stationery, but felt Santa Barbara deserved a library. She collected 400 books from friends on the East Coast and dedicated a corner of the store to a rental library. She soon married and sold her books to the Odd Fellows. They donated 2,000 more books from their collection and gave the package, including space in their building, to the City for a community library. They were probably following the lead of Andrew Carnegie, who was starting libraries across the country. Over the years, the City hired librarians and moved locations twice before building the current library at Anapamu and Anacapa streets in 1917. The 1925 earthquake took down one wall, but much was salvageable. They reopened a year later. In all incarnations, the library set aside a corner for children. My mother took us nearly every week to the library. I remember believing the Anapamu main entrance to be the most beautiful door in world. Its ornate carvings above the lintel

This The Santa Barbara Childrens Library SWAT hen police in

included the State of California seal with portraits of Aristotle and Socrates on each side. My own card took me inside to the childrens section while Mom disappeared into the stacks for her book selections. Those memories echoed in my head three weeks ago when second grader Taj Paszkeicz told the group of supporters, I like the library because its quiet and I get to read books. San Marcos High School ninth grader Diego Almanza followed up with his experience: At school I didnt hang out with kids who like books, but I could come here and read. The librarians helped me find good books. I dont know where Id be without our library, probably at home playing video games. Diego now volunteers at the library to fulfill his high school graduating requirement of community service hours. Since 1980, the library has housed the childrens area in a nearly windowless corner, shadowy in sunshine and dark gray on gloomier days. Even back then, the 1,500 square feet was never enough to serve Santa Barbaras children and families. Over the years, the space has grown more cramped and unpleasant. Meanwhile, the downstairs area that once housed newspapers, magazines, and files has remained closed due to cutbacks. The idea to create a childrens space there has been tossed around for several years. The new childrens library will occupy 6,000 square feet with good window access looking out to the courthouse. Children and families will have ample room to enjoy performances in the storytelling pit and window seats along the wall for kids to curl up with a book on their own. Under the leadership of Library Director Irene Macias, the library and Friends of the Library have searched three years for ways to make private funding and grants available to pay for the project. When Peter MacDougall and Jim Jackson, who grew up using the Montecito branch, agreed to be cochairs for the Santa Barbara Childrens Library, the project took on energetic life and is now underway. The total campaign cost is estimated at $5,624,000, which includes a $2 million endowment for programs and sustainability. So far, $1.6 million has been committed. Since kids who read statistically do better in school, are more likely to stay away from drugs, and lead healthier lives, this investment in Santa Barbaras future is more than worthwhile.

by Susan Gulbransen 
Arlington, Texas used a SWAT team to raid an organic farm recently, they took the opportunity to try out a new crime-fighting weapon: vegetable-sniffing dogs. Officers of the Arlington Police Department seized 17 blackberry bushes, 15 okra plants, 14 tomatillo plants, and sunflowers (Im not making this up). Why should a raid on an organic farm in Arlington, Texas concern me or the citizens of Montecito? Ill tell you why: because I happen to believe were all citizens of the world and I couldnt come up with anything else for a column topic. Police also confiscated native grasses during the raid, but, according to the newspaper article, they were hoping to find grasses of the non-native, illegal type. The SWAT assault followed complaints from neighbors that the farm might be cultivating merryjoo-wanna. If I lived in Arlington, Id be a little concerned about at least two things: one, that the local police cant tell the difference between marijuana and tomatillos, and two, that blackberries, sunflowers, and okra are apparently illegal in Texas. I must confess, I smoked a little okra back in the 70s, but I didnt inhale. It didnt get me high, but it did leave an aftertaste similar to vegetarian gumbo. According to the property owner, Shellie Smith, the farm residents were held at gunpoint and the entire raid took about ten hours, the same length of time as an average Major League Baseball game. Police didnt waste the trip; they arrested farm resident Quinn Eaker for an outstanding traffic violation. Let me guess: driving while under the influence of pumpkin seeds? Local officials had recently cited the Garden of Eden farm for nudity, the illicit eating of forbidden fruit, and concealing a big serpent (okay, that parts made up). But seriously, they did cite the farm for code violations that included grass that was too high, bushes growing too close to the street, and a couch and piano in the yard. That sounds like what we locals call Isla Vista. Shellie Smith said that the police didnt produce a warrant until two hours after the raid began, that the officers were standoffish, and they covered their nametags. I cant say that I blame them. First of all, I imagine the overpowering aroma of patchouli made the officers keep their distance, and secondly, if I was a big, bad SWAT team member sent on a sunflowerokra-tomatillo bust, I dont think Id want to be identified either.

This incident isnt an isolated case of police taking extreme measures to combat crimes that are less than SWATworthy. SWAT teams have in the past few years raided a bar in Virginia for a regulatory alcohol inspection, assaulted another for underage drinking in Connecticut, invaded an Amish farm that might have been selling unpasteurized milk, and raided bar-

bershops in Florida for license inspections. If like me and The Donald youve ever received a particularly bad haircut, the latter doesnt seem all that excessive. If this trend continues, they might have to change the acronym SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) to WBSLTTTOAGKSH (Were Bored So Lets Take The Tank Out And Go Kick Some Hiney). Admittedly, WBSLTTTOAGKSH would be a bit harder to say and spell (unless youre of Eastern European descent), but it might be more accurate. Keeping in stride with this recent law enforcement overkill movement, its been rumored that our local SWAT team is utilizing all its resources to go after Santa Barbara life coaches who dont actually have a life. Ive also heard through MGAG (Montecito Grapevine And Gossip) that the FBI has been citing Butterfly beachgoers for building sand castles without a permit, and that the CIA is investigating parents who send their children to Montecito Union School without an iPhone 5. Lastly, heres another reason why we should be concerned about what happens at a little farm 1,500 miles away: If the Arlington Police Department ever gets their hands on a drone or two, native grasses and sunflowers will be in peril everywhere even in Montecito.

Cummins and had her office at his home, site of todays Jordaan (once Cummins) Library. Jane maintained correspondence with her friends in Kelleys Island, and the Islander in 1885 reported, The many friends of Miss J.E. Spaulding (who was our practicing physician a few years since) will be pleased to learn that she is half owner and proprietor of a drug store in Larned, Kansas. She reports business good and that Larned has doubled in population in the past year. In 1892, Jane received a letter from Mary Ashley, one of the founders and president of the Board of Directors of the new Cottage Hospital, which had opened for business on December 8, 1891. The Board, which had tried to supervise the running of the hospital, realized they needed an on-call physician and professional to act as superintendent. Mary offered Jane a princely sum of $75 a month plus room and board at the hospital if she would take the position. Jane, now in her 60th year, accepted.

Jane arrived in the fall of 1892 and set to work. Cottage Hospital was not on solid financial footing, and the general economy was experiencing a depression as a consequence of the failed land boom of 1887. The hospital relied on annual donation day in December and financial support for free beds by several organizations in town. The woman who had demanded equal pay for equal work voluntarily reduced her salary to reduce the debt. Also looming on the horizon were reports that Dr. Richard Hall was planning to open his own private hospital, which would create competition for Cottage. In her annual report for the year ending in 1894, Jane reported that the hospital had served 157 patients of which 10 died. Proving that age hadnt dulled her wit, she stated wryly, Of the deaths, all were in the last stages of disease when admitted. While the records of the Hospital would make a better showing if such cases were not received, the purposes for which it was established would not be carried 10 17 October 2013

out were they refused admission. In December the Morning Press published Mary Ashleys announcement that despite the most economical of plans, under the judicious management of Dr. J.E. Spalding [sic] and the board of lady directors, it has been impossible to make ends meet. We now appeal to the citizens and friends of this good work to contribute to the liquidation of this debt. Then in 1895, Dr. Richard Hall, having rethought plans to establish his own hospital, set up a surgery at Cottage Hospital. His presence increased business and income. Dr. Spaulding reported, The Hospital was never in a more prosperous condition than at present. For the first time in its history, the balance at the close of the year is on the credit side of the ledger. Still, the surplus is not so large as to tempt the Treasurer to abscond, or the Superintendent to embezzle. In 1896, business was on solid footing until Dr. Hall suddenly died, and the hospital was forced to take austerity measures for 1897. According to Walker Tompkins, Jane took no salary that year, and the nursing program was suspended for a year. Jane reported that no patients were admitted who didnt pay in advance or had a responsible person vouch for them. Doctors have been known to pay office rent and support families on air, she wrote, but hospitals are not maintained in that ethereal manner. Promises to pay do not settle grocers bills. The surplus in the treasury for 1897 was 51 cents. The statewide depression had eased significantly by 1898 and the hospital was on its way to becoming selfsustaining. By 1909, it was clear that Cottage needed a larger, more modern hospital. Mrs. C.C. Park gave voice to the idea and a capital campaign was initiated. Jane was an ardent supporter of the cause and wished for nothing more than to see it completed. In 1911, Dr. Jane E. Spaulding retired due to the increasingly debilitating effects of arteriosclerosis, though she continued to live at the hospital. On July 31, 1913, the new hospital, of imposing proportions and pleasing design hosted a formal opening. Jane

Dr. Jane Spaulding arrived in Santa Barbara in 1873 and stayed at the Occidental Hotel (16). She opened an office in the Stanley Building until moving her practice to a residence (probably Webbs) on De la Vina Street. It seems possible that this home was in the Brinkerhoff block (A). Having left in 1875/76, she returned in 1879 for a short time and established a practice in the Pierce Block of State Street (B). (1877 Birds Eye View map courtesy Hattie Beresford)

was the guest of honor at the tea reception and the first patient admitted to the new hospital. Twenty-one days later, Dr. Jane Edna Spaulding died. The annual report for that year says, By many and varied services she manifested her attachment to the hospital and her belief in its behalf. She was a woman of strict honor and integrity, and united to an iron perseverance that overcame all discouragements [was] a tenderness of heart that showed itself to those who came in close contact with her. Janes early friends feared she would lose her respectability by becoming a doctor, but she found the courage to throw off that yoke. When we wish to do a thing, she once wrote, instead of asking our neighbors if it is respectable, let us first ask ourselves if it is right. For if it be right, we can very easily make it respectable. The amazing Jane Edna Spaulding embodied the very essence of respectability.

The Association board agreed to continue to explore the idea of longterm lease options for 1469 East Valley Road, the property in which Community Hall and Montecito Library are located. The Association has been looking for options to expand the archive room, in conjunction with Montecito Historical Archives, a nonprofit formed to honor Montecito historian David Myrick and his extensive collections of Montecito memorabilia. One idea is to build a basement at Community Hall, essentially doubling the size of the building. President Dave Kent has been in talks with the County, which owns the property, about the idea, and about possibly acquiring a long-term lease in order to make the renovations to the building. Board member Tom Bollay estimates the cost of the renovations to be roughly $1.2 million, which would need to be funded by community donations. We will continue exploring the idea; this is very preliminary, Kent said. The next Montecito Association Board Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, November 12, at 4 pm. 

Last Tuesday, October 1, a new specialty home and lifestyle shop opened its doors in Montecito Country Mart, next door to Roris Creamery. The store, Mate Gallery New York, is owned by Ron Brand and Matt Albiani, who say they hope to bring a little East Coast style to Montecito. California is known for its own beachy vibe, but this is a little different, Albiani said about the offerings of his new store, which also serves as a gallery for his beach-themed photographs. Mate Gallery has been carefully curated, and features vintage pieces, photographs, oil paintings, and more, all sourced from either east coast vendors or estate sales from around the world. The collection includes vintage books, tabletop accessories, ocean paraphernalia, tapestries, and some new items, including a skin care line by Ursa Major, and Sea Bags, reusable bags recycled from old sails. Montecito has nothing like Mate Gallery, so we thought it would be the perfect place to open the shop, said Brand. The store is the brainchild of the two men; Albiani, a New York-based fashion photographer, and Brand, a Santa Barbara-based Sothebys realtor, collaborated to find the perfect location. Albiani has spent several years as a popular vendor on One Kings Lane, an online marketplace specializing in vintage dcor and designer accessories. It all stemmed from there,

A&L Off to Good Start After just one year of fundraising, UCSB Arts & Lectures is more than halfway to its goal of $20 million in its five-year capital campaign, Miller McCune executive director Celesta Billeci revealed as the popular series kicked off its 54th anniversary season with multi Emmy and Golden Globe winner Alan Alda entertaining a sold-out crowd at the Granada with Things I Overheard While Talking to Myself. Alda, 77, who made his mark as Hawkeye Pierce on the long running TV series M*A*S*H from 1972 to 1983, recounted his 40-year career, starting with his near death experience from an internal blockage on a mountain top in Chile to his interest in science collaborating on PBSs Scientific America Frontiers and creating the Alan Alda Center for Communicating Science at Stony Brook University in New York. After a question and answer session on stage, the affable actor and many of the series top donors, including Sara Miller McCune, Robert and Gretchen Lieff, Robert Weinman, Lynda Weinman, Bruce Heavin, and Dan and Meg Burnham, adjourned to the McCune Founders Room for dinner. Just 24 hours later many of the same audience were back at the theater for

the Alonzo King LINES Ballet from San Francisco, founded by the former Santa Barbara High graduate in 1982. The 11-strong contemporary troupe performed two entertaining pieces, a new work Meyer with interesting use of real water spouts at the back of the stage, and a 2011 16-part work Resin, which moved from intimate duets to the barely visible foot work of a quartet of dancers exploring the possibilities of the vast and diverse field of Sephardic music. A delightful kickoff of another varied and exciting season... Longer Length for Lutah The forthcoming documentary on Lutah Maria Riggs, the first licensed female architect in Santa Barbara, has been super sized! Originally set to be a half-hour-long work for entry in next years Santa Barbara International Film Festival, award winning documentary filmmaker Kum-Kum Bhavnani tells me it will now be an hour long, given all the access they have been given to properties designed by Riggs, as well as memorabilia that has come to hand. It really is an absolute treasure trove that deserves to be seen, she told members of the Lutah Maria Riggs Society at a bash held at Los Suenos, the George Washington Smith estate of Robert and Gretchen Lieff.

Celebrating Seabaugh Tecolote, the lively literary lair in the Upper Village, suffered major social gridlock when Santa Barbara psychologist Michael Seabaugh launched his first novel, The Cure for Love, described as an intense psychological dissection of the subject. I was compelled to write this book as a way of more honorably exploring the conundrums of love that have plagued so many of my patients over the years, says Michael. There is an intoxication that comes from the Hollywood version of love and then there is the reductive version that comes from your typical self-help book. We havent been necessarily well served by these models, nor perhaps from the models we had in our own families of origin. Ive attempted to address the subject of adult relationships and its complexities, not by romanticizing them or reducing them to bullet points, but by expanding the dialogue. Ive attempted to do this in the context of a hopefully compelling story. Michael, who is also a journalist writing for a number of magazines and other publications, is now working on a new novel called Gwendolyn and Eddie, about a Midwestern couple who end up with a Capuchin monkey, won in a poker game, in their home.

Margaret Halbig accompanied on the piano while another mezzo-soprano, Tate Ericson, played the harried stage manager. At the end of the operetta, Nicely sang a selection of works with Gershwins Our Love Is Here to Stay, Oscar Hammersteins The King and I and Leonard Bernsteins Candide.

Alessandro Cartumini, was churning out exotic culinary fare, part of a two month tour of the western U.S. covering eight destinations in California, New Mexico and Arizona, driving more than 1,000 miles. We are showcasing our chefs talents and keeping up with food trends, says Alessandro, dealing with an extremely long line of customers eager to check out the five-star food at considerably less than five-star prices. Around the corner on East Canon Perdido father and son, Bob and Clay Lovejoy, opened the Pickle Room, next door to their popular Three Pickles Deli, and formerly the home for 59 years of the legendary Jimmys Oriental Gardens. We want to honor our neighborhoods heritage and have totally restored the iconic red bar, with a decor of red, black and gold, says Bob, who has also hired longtime bartender Willy Gilbert, who worked at Jimmys for more than 25 years. Among those checking out the new joint were mayor Helene Schneider, Dan Murphy, Mike and Terri Imwalle, Brian and Jan Escalera, and Jesse Aldana...

unique in the artistic environment of the city. Also, I have a lot of experience with this music from when I moved to Italy and started to work in Italian opera houses. Thats the bread and butter of what we do there. So I thought it would be nice to bring some of that expertise to our local audience.

didnt work in the Arlington. And you can exaggerate those areas. And if we havent played something in years, which is how things are when you only have one program a month, it has a fresh approach anyway. What are you most looking forward to this year? There are a lot of highlights, but personally, Noam Sheriffs Akeda (The Sacrifice of Isaac) is by my teacher who I just saw again this summer, so its certainly an emotional moment for me to bring his music to town. And I think our collaboration with Hlne Grimaud, who is one of the worlds leading soloists, is something we will remember for a long time. And I do think doing the modern stuff will also stick around in our minds for a while.

repertory work Sand Into Glass, choreographed by company founder Devyn Duex that originally premiered as a six-minute piece and has evolved into a six-section story line. Duex talked about the performances over the telephone earlier this week. Q. How did you hook up with Brooklyn Hughes? A. Its a pivotal year for us. Wed done everything organically before, just by word of mouth. But we had our first formal audition process this year thirteen people came out for dance positions. And we did the same thing for choreographers, using a submission process. When we met up with Brooklyn, it was clear that she was a good fit. What can you tell me about her piece? The initial idea was that she was very inspired by trees the history, mythology, and stories that have been told. There are so many interesting places you can take it. There are seven sections, and the piece has evolved into a storyline of unconditional support and love that trees and nature give us. But you can also draw your own stories from the work. She has a very specific line in her mind, but there are the broader aspects that every viewer can take from it... Brooklyn really used our platform well, because were highly collaborative, and the dancers get a lot of input, lots of back and forth and sharing. Its also highly technical, like a fairytale come to life. Theres lots of color, with big beautiful elaborate headpieces that the three tree characters wear. All of the elements make it into a beautiful and hopeful story. Her technique comes from a strong ballet background, so theres contemporary ballet influence, which is new to our company, and warmly welcomed. Its great to push and be challenged. We want to have a rich repertory when we look through our works. Its the first piece where weve had our new dancers, including two who just graduated from UCSB, and its a very deep pool of talent with lots of experience. Were excited with this project. Its a longer new work, and weve put a lot of heart and soul into it.

I notice, of course, that theres also a full complement of Mozart, Beethoven, and lots of other classical favorites, including the William Tell Overture. Is the programming getting more conservative? I dont think thats entirely accurate, as there are lots of works by living composers and other pieces that arent played that often as we do try to bring to the table pieces that are less known... But we need our audience to survive. You cant go against the taste of what people want. We can lead them to discovering and exploring pieces that are new to them, but you cant do that for a whole concert. We have to be very careful. This is Santa Barbara, not Berlin or Munich, where there are four to five million people where a lot of people would be interested in avant-garde music. In fact, its remarkable that we are able to have two concerts repeating the program. You have to respect what they want. So we will do Tchaikovsky and Brahms, and balance them with pieces that are worthy of hearing. But we cant not try to please our audience at all and lose our base. How do you make the classics fresh and new? Ideally, when you revive the pieces, you have to respect the tradition but look for ways to make it personal. You know how Mahler or Brahms should be played, after hearing them over the last 100 to 150 years. We know the recordings, and what the composer wanted. But with that in mind, every one has his own language, every conductor should look for how to make it personal without changing the notes, or the dynamics to the point where its not recognizable. But there is a certain freedom in tempo, slower or faster with modern orchestras, who can play that way. And you shape it in a way where it sounds natural in your hall. The Granada enables us to do things like playing very soft which

Whats new with Sand Into Glass? Its been a work in progress over many years, and its taken on a powerful place. This season, having the three new dancers has given it different life. Weve taken a couple of moments, particularly in the first section, and expanded them more, built then out and given more depth. If youve seen it before, youll recognize it, but there will be new parts that will capture you. And we think its even more powerful than it was before. The company doesnt have any male dancers. How does that play out? You know, its hard to find them in town, because the professionals are with other bigger companies or theyre out of town. But its a neat experience to have all women because you have that challenge of creating the relationships on stage. You cant go to the easy male-female duo and already have a storyline in place. You have to make it happen with the dance.

Nebula Dance Labs Floodlit & Fallen

Dance performances come in all shapes and sizes. On the one hand, this week brings in a big behemoth of a company, in Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane, who have garnered just about every possible award and recognition and lured large audiences over its 30-plus year existence (see Events Calendar for details). On the other end of the spectrum are companies like Nebula Dance Lab, a fledgling Santa Barbara outfit that put on its first performances less than two years ago, and whose basic local performance season consists of one weekend in October. But Nebula is still a very ambitious outfit, and this weekends presentation includes both a 40-minute long world premiere plus a re-worked, updated version of its signature piece from previous shows. Floodlit & Fallen features a new work by Brooklyn Hughes, her first choreography since the former SB resident (once associated with State Street Ballet) returned to town. The show also reprises the

Julika is undoubtedly our best selling local artist and she is currently talking to a gallery in Zurich, Switzerland, which Im sure will garner her international acclaim, says Alex, whose artistic hotspot is celebrating its sixth anniversary. We deal with some three hundred artists and she is at the top! We initially saw some of her work on display at a sushi restaurant in L.A. and brought four of her works here, selling two. Since then weve sold a dozen of them. Food for the launch bash was from Zabars, the famed gourmet and kosher food store on New Yorks Upper Westside. Theres nothing to beat it, laughs Alex.

The Brothers Comatose headline the Old-Time Fiddlers Convention and Festival this Sunday, October 13, at Rancho La Patera & Stow House

42nd Annual Old-Time Fiddlers Convention and Festival this Sunday afternoon, October 13. And in a lot of ways, the band encapsulates what the event is all about, even as it has transformed for a purely amateur gathering filled with competitions and lots of jamming to a more full-fledged festival with a nonstop lineup of performers. The Brothers Comatose grew up in a house that was known for its music parties, a gathering place where everyone would bring an instrument, call out tunes, call out changes, and just play for hours, says bassist Gio Benedetti, who grew up with the brothers, in a statement. I learned more in that living room than in any class I ever took. Now joined by Philip Brezina (fiddle) and Ryan Avellone (mandolin), the string quintet has kept that party atmosphere going even if it generates from the stage. Also on the performance roster for this years Fiddle Fest are Rafe & Clelia Stefanini, a father-daughter duo who favor fiddle duets, banjo tunes, songs, and ballads; Sausage Grinder, a Los Angeles-based all-natural hillbilly and country blues band; Stuart Mason and Gary Arcemont, who play a variety of old-time country music on fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandola, and mandolin who also play together as part of the Old-Time Fiddle and Banjo Show based in San Luis Obispo; Sam n Ash, a Venturabased folk duo who play mostly original material on accordion and mandolin; SBs own Honeysuckle Possums, who have expanded the core singersongwriter trio into an Appalachian music-loving quintet named after the worlds smallest marsupial; and Hay Dudes, which brings together Kenny Blackwell, Mike Mullins, and Wally Barnick, three of the finest musicians from the Central and South Coasts 10 17 October 2013

(the latter two comprise two-thirds of the Cache Valley Drifters, too), who will appear with special guest fiddle master Dennis Caplinger. But heres one thing that decidedly sets the Old-Time Fiddlers Convention and Festival apart from Hardly Strictly Bluegrass and its ilk: wed venture to wager that all of the artists, virtually every last one of them, will do a little free form jamming either before or after their own stage sets which for some of these folks is at least half the reason they book these gigs anyway. Theres nothing like hearing acoustic music truly acoustically i.e. with no amplification at all. So partake of the performances, cruise by the competitions, and wallow in the workshops to your hearts delight, but dont miss the impromptu jam sessions that pop up all over the grounds, perhaps the grassroots heart of the fiddle fest. The 2013 Old-Time Fiddlers Convention and Festival takes place 10am-5pm Sunday, October 13 at Rancho La Patera & Stow House, 304 N. Los Carneros Road, Goleta. Admission costs $20 general, $15 seniors/students, free 17 and under. Call 450-2243 or visit MJ

Thursday, October 10 UCSB Music season begins The programs and presentations from the university department at the Isla Vista campus might be one of the best-kept secrets in the arts world in town or at least one of the most affordable. The new academic season gets underway tonight with a lecture by composer Yann Orlarey called An Overview of FAUST, about the software (Functional Audio Stream) a synchronous functional programming language specifically designed for real-time signal processing and synthesis he created (6pm, UCSB Studio Xenakis [Music 2215], free)... Also this week: David Viscoli guest artist from the University of Minnesota who has won awards in the Los Angeles Liszt Competition, the Carmel Music Society Piano Competition, and the Joanna Hodges International Piano Competition performs Beethovens Sonata in E-flat Major, Op. 27, No. 1 and Sonata in F-Sharp, Op.78 and Rachmaninoffs Etudes-Tableaux, Op. 39 (4pm Sunday, Karl Geiringer Hall [Music 1250], free)... Also, the SF Jazz Collective, which appears in concert via Arts & Lectures next Thursday night, lead a workshop with the UCSB Jazz Ensemble in the afternoon (4-5:30pm, UCSB Music Room 1145, Free).

Angelas ashes One of the icons of the 60s is about to turn 70. But despite 40-plus years having gone by since her protests with the Black Panthers got her placed on the FBIs 10 Most Wanted list, nearly 30 since she twice ran for Vice President on the Communist Party ticket and her recent retirement as professor in the History of Consciousness Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz Dr. Angela Davis remains active in a variety of fields, including prisoner rights. Now, UCSB is screening Free Angela and All Political Prisoners, a 2012 documentary that traces her case and career and highlights the struggle of the educator and activist. Davis herself will be on hand for a Q&A session following the film. (Note: the event is sold out, but the Q&A will be live streamed over the Internet, accessible through the Pollock Theater homepage at approximately 8:45pm).

Deja Yuja Generally speaking, UCSB Arts & Lectures doesnt present specific classical artists or other musicians, for that matter on any sort of a regular basis. The idea is not only to keep offering fresh fare to keep concertgoers interested, but also, as part of the educational environment, to bring new perspectives to the college audience. But theyve made an exception for Yuja Wang. The vibrant young pianist first played at Hahn Hall in spring 2009, and returned to the venue less than two years later in January, 2011. No one was complaining as Wang delivered another stunning performance, displayed a nearly superhuman technique boasting speed and agility as well as an eloquence and nuance that far belies her years, and a remarkably charismatic stage presence. Somehow, there were still a few empty seats at the 300-capacity hall. Now just 30 months later, Wang is back again, but this time the world (and Santa Barbara) has caught up to her gifts. Hot on the heels of a new Deutsche Grammophon CD out just this week featuring her live performance of Rachmaninovs 3rd Piano Concerto and Prokofievs 2nd Piano Concerto with the Simn Bolvar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela, led by conductor Gustavo Dudamel, and just months before she begins a stint as the featured artist with the London Symphony Orchestra next year, Wang is stepping up to the much larger Campbell Hall back on the UCSB campus. The perform includes Prokofievs Piano Sonata No. 3 in A Minor, op. 28; Chopins Piano Sonata No. 3 in B Minor, op. 58; Nocturne No. 1 in C Minor, op. 48; and Ballade No. 3 in A-flat Major, op. 47; Kapustins Variations for piano, op. 41; and Stravinskys Three Movements from Petrushka.

The album, which came out just last fall, is an eleven-song rumination on love and relationships, hence the clever title. But nothing recorded compares to hearing Sweet Talk Radio live in concert, where their harmonies, melodies, and incisive lyrics are brought forth by their winning stage presence. No strangers to SB clubs and coffeehouses, Schorr and Burlingame show up this time at Song Tree Concert Series, the monthly singer-songwriter series in a space that was re-designed partially with live music in mind.

Beamer, who is considered one of the premier singersongwriters, arrangers, and composers on the Islands, was one of Hawaiis  first recording artists to integrate Hawaiian chants and instruments into contemporary music. He was nominated for a Grammy in Hawaiian Music in 2011, and has won several N Hk awards (Hawaiis equivalent to the Grammys), including a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2009. And his music has also been heard prominently on film, including several songs that were featured on the soundtrack for The Descendants, which earned five Oscars nominations. For the evening concert, Beamer will be joined by flutist R. Carlos Nakai, pianist Geoffrey Keezer, and Moanalani Beamer, Keolas hula master wife. And while there is only the one concert, the oneday festivals preliminary events include a hula workshop with Moanalani at 11am, a one-hour session with Keola titled The Art of Slack Key Guitar and the Meaning of Aloha at 2pm, and a 3pm artists reception with wine, hors doeuvres, coffee, and dessert with the added bonus of a VIP ticket with seats in the first five rows.

Alt.something strikes again Folk-rock bands seem to be popping up like dandelions on a well-watered lawn these days, but dont dismiss the Avett Brothers like some soulless piece of freshly-laid sod. The North Carolina band composed of actual brothers Scott Avett (banjo) and Seth Avett (guitar) with touring members Bob Crawford (double bass), Joe Kwon (cello), and Mike Marsh (drums) has been around since the year 2000, winning fans and critical acclaim for a quirky combination of bluegrass, country, punk, and ragtime with folk and rock. Maybe the San Francisco Chronicle said it best, lauding Avett Brothers for having the heavy sadness of Townes Van Zandt, the light pop concision of Buddy Holly, the tuneful jangle of the Beatles, the raw energy of the Ramones. The bands mid-career releases of albums Emotionalism in 2007 and I and Love and You in 2009 got the commercial ball rolling for the brothers, who cashed in mightily when last years The Carpenter debuted at No. 4 on Billboards album chart, and earned a Grammy nomination. The follow-up, Magpie and the Dandelion, is due out next Tuesday. Get a sneak preview of the new songs along with old favorites at the bands concert tonight at the Santa Barbara Bowl, with bespectacled singer Nicholas David who made a strong run last year in the third season of the reality TV series The Voice playing an opening set.

Genius in dance Choreographers and dance companies dont come a whole lot more decorated than Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Co. Jones received a MacArthur Genius Award in 1994, and was one of five recipients for the Kennedy Center Honors in 2010. Over the years, he has created more than 100 works for the company he founded with his late partner more than 30 years ago, and also choreographed for Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, AXIS Dance Company, Boston Ballet, Lyon Opera Ballet, Berlin Opera Ballet, and Diversions Dance Company. And on Broadway, Jones has received two Tony Awards for Best Choreography, for Spring Awakening in 2007 and Fela! in 2010. So its no exaggeration to call Jones a modern dance icon whose inventive choreography has shaped the evolution of contemporary dance. And its quite a feather in their cap that UCSB Arts & Lectures has enticed the company back to Santa Barbara to perform a program of company repertoire called Play and Play. Included are Jones Spent Days Out Yonder (2001), a meditation on the second movement of Mozarts String Quartet No. 23 in F Major; D-Man in the Waters (1989, revised 1998), a joyful tour de force set to Mendelssohns Octet for Strings in E-flat Major, op. 20; and Continuous Replay (1977, 1991), which traces Arnie Zanes interests in photography and film and is based on 45 precise gestures accumulated in space and time. A new score by Jerome Begin incorporates material from Ludwig van Beethovens String Quartet op. 18, no. 1 and String Quartet op. 135. Los Angelesbased Calder Quartet will accompany the dancers, both as a quartet and as an octet with some of their colleagues. (Note: the quartet is also slated to appear next February in their own performance via UCSB at Hahn Hall.) As part of his campus residency, Jones will also appear in An Afternoon with Bill T. Jones on Monday, October 14 at 4pm at UCSB Hatlen Theater. Admission is free. WHEN: 8pm WHERE: Granada Theatre, 1214 State Street COST: $35-$45 INFO: 893-3535/ or 899-2222/

The documentary American Winter follows the personal stories of families struggling in the aftermath of the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression. Filmed over the course of one winter in one American city (Portland, Oregon), the film presents an intimate snapshot of the state of the nations economy as it is playing out in millions of American families, and highlights the human consequences of the decline of the middle class and the fracturing of the American Dream.

Mark and his wife, Sheela Hunt, are real estate agents. They live in Montecito with their daughter Sareena, a student at SBHS. His family goes back nearly one hundred years in the Santa Barbara area. Marks grandparents Bill and Elsie Hunt were Santa Barbara real estate brokers for 25 years.

here have been very few new homes coming on the market in our ZIP code recently, and certain price ranges have more inventory available than others. This situation impacts buyer options, prices for homes, and other market conditions for everyone. Within the past couple of weeks, three homes hit the market in Montecito that are worth inspecting. One of these, the 7,000+/- square-foot Mediterraneanstyle home with ocean views in guard-gated Ennisbrook, which has a heated pool at the clubhouse, is selling for $5,150,000. Another has been on the market and is resurfacing as a new listing. Located in the foothills, it has a southwest positioned pool and is selling for $2,595,000. Heres our current caravan: This ranch-style home was built in 1963 and features a private setting on one acre at the eastern end of Montecito, near the Romero Canyon area. The home has three bedrooms and 2.5 baths and is advertised as having 2,700+ square feet. The home is in mostly original condition, with room for upgrades and improvements. The price reflects motivation, as there are no other one-acre properties in the Montecito Union School District on the market at this time priced under $2 million (per MLS as Three bedrooms, two and a half baths, a swimming pool, and a price just under $2 million are of Sept 28, 2013).
