Editorial


by James Buckley

He Really Was Larger Than Life

nthony Andy Granatellis death on December 29 leaves a great big giant gap in the human palette. He was a dear, dear man and I was fortunate to have been among his and his wife Dollys circle of friends. Doctors say he died of heart failure, but that seems unlikely. His body may have failed him, but his heart couldnt; it wouldnt; it was too big, too generous, too vital. Half a dozen years ago, my wife, Helen, and I accompanied Andy, Dolly, Andys brother Vince and his wife, Lori, and about two dozen other Montecito and/or Santa Barbara race fans to that years Indy 500. Andy had attended every Indy 500 race for 63 years at that point, either as a racecar owner or simply as an observer. His passion for and dedication to the annual Longtime Montecito resident Andy Granatelli (18 March Memorial Weekend 500-mile 1923 - 29 December 2013) was synonymous with both STP, of which he was CEO, and the Indy 500, which his race team race was legendary. nearly won a number of times before finally coming in first We noted in the very first in 1969 and again in 1973 issue of our semi-annual glossy edition (Winter/Spring 2008/9) that: As recognizable as the name Granatelli is in the racing world and even among the general public, there is one place where the name is not just well-known, but is held in near reverence: Indianapolis, Indiana. Granatelli is the G-word in Indianapolis, and given a choice between God and Granatelli, one would be hard-pressed to determine which name mattered more in the Bible Belt city. Everywhere we went in our two white vans with Granatelli writ large across the front windshield, doors, gates, and locks opened magically as soon as the vans were spotted. Whether it was to visit Gasoline Alley, drive around the Indy 500 track for a little sightseeing, enter a private parking lot for a museum visit, or simply to descend upon a restaurant for lunch or dinner, the Granatelli vans were met with hospitality, deference, and genuine joy. Andy was in his element there. Although by then hed been relegated to a small battery-powered scooter in order to get around, he was regularly swamped with well-wishers and autograph seekers, and he always generously stuck around to sign and converse with his fans. Andy asked that no memorial service be held for him. We must respect his request, but we cant allow him to pass into that good night without honoring the wishes and remembrances from those who knew and loved him. One of those friends fellow vintage auto enthusiast Dana Newquist suggested that anyone who had been touched by Andy should e-mail us (jim@montecitojour nal.net). Well be pleased to run their letters and remembrances in future issues. Andy may not have wanted a memorial service, but I do know one thing he did want. In my will, Andy said to me during a quiet moment, I tell my family that I want to be cremated and I want my ashes spread on the track. They dont condone that, he said, but some in the know are aware of others whose ashes have been scattered on the track, including a two-time Indy 500 winner. We wont speculate on who that two -time winner was, but we believe Andy Granatellis ashes should not only be scattered on the track, but some should also be ceremoniously buried near the bricks that run across the finish line there. A simple brass plaque is all thats needed to remind one and all of what a fine, funny, vibrant, dynamic, passionate, bigger-than-life presence he was. As for me, Im going to miss his gruff voice, his quick mind, those wet kisses, MJ and the warmth of his sweet hellos.  9 16 January 2014

Back To The Future 101


was compelled to grab a copy of Volume 19 Issue 50 because the snapshot of our traffic issue on the cover transported me to a conversation I had with a Caltrans worker back in the spring of 1991 (Ease The Squeeze, Please!, MJ # 19/50). Before I get into the details of the conversation, I would like to point out that I did enjoy reading from those that appreciated Bob Hazards comments from the previous issue (My Take: To Widen or Not to Widen the 101, MJ # 19/49) and also from those that disagreed, but I couldnt help but wonder if that conversation should have even taken place. For many years, a good number of Caltrans workers were known to frequent my fathers market, and those numbers increased when the highway project began in (I believe) 1989 with Measure D funds we voted on. At any rate, I befriended one of the crewmen and he would update me with the happenings as they progressed. I vividly recall telling him what a relief it will be to not only be done with the portion they were working on, but also how sweet it would be to drive through the rest of the way to Ventura. I was shocked to hear from him that the Milpas overpass would be the end of the line for the project and that plans to widen through Montecito would be scrapped. I dont know if I was more heartbroken or angry to hear the news, especially when I listened to the reason he gave me. He said that the higher ups were getting a lot of grief and were essentially coerced into shutting the remaining widening plans down. The phrase that stuck in my head and still rings is and Im quoting my Caltrans buddy here they (Montecito residents) didnt want our quaint little freeway to look like L.A. Well, depending on what time you go through the bottleneck at Olive Mill, it looks exactly like L.A. traffic. Nobody wanted Santa Barbara to look like L.A., but we couldve avoided a lot of this mess if we had just toughed it out a bit longer back then, had an open mind to the widening project, and believed that Caltrans would keep our architectural needs in the forefront. Lets not forgot my point. If you look at the numerical carvings in the State Street underpass, it says 1991, indicating the year of its completion.

many parades that followed.) Those markings not only indicate the completion date, but can be used to roughly calculate the completion of the two miles weve been fussing over for the last five years to somewhere around 1995 or 1996. Im sure we wouldve encountered some issues here and there, but not only would it have been done a long time ago, theres a good chance the Caltrans engineers back in 1991 wouldve been sensitive to our current needs. I guess well never know. If someone ever builds a time machine, be sure to send a time traveler with the December issues of the Montecito Journal. Hopefully, they can go back to 1991 to use those heartfelt sentiments and concerns to reason with those that unwittingly interfered with and sabotaged progress that was long overdue back then and above all inevitable. On another subject, I found it very interesting that you would agree with Mr. Alex Taron in regards to ObamaCare (Letters to the Editor, No-Profit Businesses, MJ # 19/50). Im not sure if you were expecting someone on the lower rungs of the socioeconomic ladder to pick up your free publication and chime in, but I can say this: just because our hard work and lack of education still isnt enough to afford some of the basic needs that should be accessible to all Americans including proper and affordable healthcare we dont deserve to be shunned, left behind, and accused of having our hand out. Many of us have to work very hard for what others take for granted, which is fine. But it still doesnt stop me from wondering if well ever see the day when the more fortunate stop spending their energy stepping on the fingers of those that are trying their hardest to hang on, but instead use that same energy to find ways to open up new opportunities that will lift others out of mediocrity, even those that deserve to be there. Doing so would not only help in immeasurable ways, but Im certain it would increase their net worth in the process. My youngest daughter will be the last of the third generation of Santa Barbara High School graduates in our family, and we anxiously await the fourth generation to follow in our footsteps. So I would like to finish by asking a rhetorical question: what would America be like if we could find a way to revisit the spirit similar 9 16 January 2014

to that which was there for the baby boomers when they graduated and began their families? Thomas Aguirre Santa Barbara (Editors note: As for your Caltrans workers comments regarding those obstreperous Montecito residents who apparently had the political ability to halt the 101 project, lets just say that, at the time, Caltrans one-size-fits-all plan was to create three lanes of concrete slicing through this area. It was indeed L.A. like and though there is no proof that Montecito residents had the power or wherewithal to stop the project, we are pleased it never happened that way. The reason traffic is so miserable so often around here is mostly the result of Caltrans decision to close the southbound on-ramp off Cabrillo Boulevard. A freer market in healthcare and insurance would go a long way towards correcting the imbalances that have developed in that world. The spirit of baby boomers was fine, but their inability to even think about paying for the excesses of government spending that have occurred under their watch is not something worth emulating. J.B.)

Cars Are Basic, Inc (CAB)read Bob Hazards comments on 101 widening with great interest (My Take: To Widen or Not to Widen the 101, MJ # 19/49). CAB was started as a grassroots reaction to intentional destruction and obstruction of roads and freeways conditions Mr. Hazard mentions in his article. Fifteen years ago, the cry was air pollution and destruction of our way of life. Today, the same political factions champion high density and alternative transportation as the cure for more and more cars. Car trips are a result of destinations in Montecito and Santa Barbara drawing tourists. Many people moved here because of these destinations, adding to daily car trips. These new residents impact the very quality of life they supposedly want to save. CAB attended the first consensus planning groups where Caltrans, the City of Santa Barbara, and groups from Montecito showed up. The past decade has seen the following: the Ortega Ridge bike lane built at 100

percent over budget, the closing of the southbound 101 on-ramp at Cabrillo, the cement wall preventing cut back of Ortega Ridge, and the building of the Hot Springs roundabout. Our proposals for these locations are unchanged. Move the bridges inward, allowing for right lane off-ramps and reopening the Cabrillo on-ramp. Remove the Hot Springs roundabout. Remove the Ortega Ridge bike path and put it where it should have been built on the mountain side of Ortega Ridge Road. Mr. Hazard provides an impressive bibliography, most of which this group has quoted in the past. 1) The Ortega Ridge bike path failed the stated purpose of providing alternative transportation to alleviate the need to widen 101 (signed by Supervisor Schwartz). 2) Opening the southbound on-ramp eliminates the massive rush hour and holiday traffic on Coast Village Road, taking away pressures on Olive Mill. It adds to quality of life. 3) The Hot Springs roundabout has resulted in increased accidents, made pedestrian and bike travel dangerous, and increased exit speeds, making the 101 northbound on-ramp dangerous for traffic turning left from Cabrillo. A standard intersection allows for greater off-ramp holding capacity, ease of access for commercial trucks servicing businesses, lowers exit speeds, breaks in traffic flow, and left turns to the beach away from Coast Village Road. Unintended consequences of two and three above have increased cutthrough traffic on residential roads, further infuriating residents in and around the lower village. Regarding costs: yes, this will be more expensive initially than the short-term bandage approach. If rational planning had been allowed to work, most of the CabrilloHot Springs-Coast Village Road construction would be complete, at less cost to the taxpayer. Instead, those who would build Utopia won the day, resulting in problems currently facing Montecito. Two of the loudest Utopian voices now live completely outside the area affected by this type of planning (one a Santa Barbara traf-

ast month, major landscaping maintenance and tree trimming was performed at Upper Manning Park; photographer Dan Seibert, who was dismayed by the maintenance, brought the work to the Journals attention. Seibert says he was shocked to see significant amounts of shrubbery gone, along with many trees. It was once a lush landscape you could get lost in, he wrote, Not anymore. Earlier this week we met with park ranger Doug Norton, who has supervised the park for the last 37 years. He walked us through the park, showing us what non-native trees had been removed, and why. The majority of the removed vegetation was pittosporum trees, or mock orange trees, which are non-native and were overgrown along the ravine. We had to edit, to help build the park into a mostly native habitat, he explained. The pittosporum, which are typically used for hedges, are very invasive, and smother specimen oaks, eucalyptus, and other trees. Norton, who came out to meet us on his day off, showed us several examples of oak tree branches without leaves, because the pittosporum had overgrown and shaded the specimen trees, leaving them without sun. Many of the oaks in the park have branches, which are dying due to the invasive species, Norton said. He supervises the 13-acre property on a daily basis, and says

he knows the park inside and out. I know where every rock is, and how it got there, he laughed. The work was done by contractors hired by the county; usually Norton performs the work himself or with his small team. Thats why it seems like more was done, because we were able to have a contractor come in, he said. The work took place in December.

he Lobero Theatre Associates send out proper invitations each year for a proper holiday tea, but that doesnt mean it isnt full of chatter and delight. This year it was held in the lovely El Mar room at the Biltmore, and it began with festive, bubbly sparkling wine. Everyone came bearing gifts unwrapped toys that will be delivered to CALM to be given to children in need of a Santa Claus. One couldnt ignore the sumptuous table of savory

finger sandwiches and sweet desserts. The Associates president Emily Johnson thanked co-chairs Lily Marx and Leslie Haight for coordinating the event. She then presented a certificate to the last Lobero Associates founding member, Marilyn Schuermann, proclaiming her an Honorary Member Emeritus. It all began 40 years ago. President of the Lobero board Jeff DeVine spoke to the ladies, thanking them for the hundreds of thousands of dollars they have given to the theatre

throughout the years. Theyve redone the courtyard three times, bought a tent to cover it, given a Steinway piano, contributed to youth programs, and more. Jeff was excited about the remodeling the Lobero has just completed. He said, Its the same, but in a shiny new wrapper. Youll love the esplanade, which is in front of the Lobero where it is now level. No more catching your heels and tripping. And the way George Washington Smith envisioned it in the first place. We now have heating and air conditioning for the first time. The ceiling has been restored. New wood floors and carpet and especially the new seats, which are wider and more comfortable. We are now selling seat dedications for $2,500 each. I thought I heard applause when Jeff said the ladies restroom has been considerably enlarged. The Lobero only needs $200,000 more in donations to close on the $6.8 million they needed for the renovation. Ladies, keep up the good work and well see you all at the new Lobero Theatre.

ers from around the states, if not the world, and each Christmas the Montecito Union School fifth and sixth graders come to sing traditional Christmas music. Their director Pam Herzog told us, These kids volunteer their time and are with me four days a week at 7:30 am to practice. Before they sang, our own Gil Rosas was at the piano getting us in the holiday spirit. After lunch at Fess Parkers DoubleTree Resort, Erin Graffy introduced world-renowned scientific celebrity Julian Nott, who lives right here in Santa Barbara with his wife, Anne Luther. As Erin said when she introduced Julian, The balloons Julian flies are not like Dorothy and Toto coming back home to Kansas. He has broken seventy-nine world records and ninety-six British ones. According to the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum, Julian is the leading figure in applying modern science to manned balloon design over the last twenty years. You dont get to sip champagne while gently gliding over animals in Africa. His balloons go into the solar system. Among his many achievements are the first crossing of the Sahara Desert, first crossing of Australia, crossing the Alps, and piloting the first solar balloon across the English Channel. Hes right in there with the Wright Brothers, C. S. Rolls who founded Roll Royce Motors, and Neil Armstrong. They all received the Gold Medal of the Royal Aero Club.

He is widely educated; he graduated from Epsom College in England and has a Masters Degree in physical chemistry from Oxford. Whew! But theres more. His lecture at Channel City Club was titled Intellectual Courage and Ballooning Exploring Landscapes Near & Far. He told about how he developed his love of balloons when

at age 21 he asked a young lady to go for a balloon ride like in Up, Up and Away. As he said, That did it. Within two years I had gone to an altitude of six thousand feet, which was a world record. In case we didnt know, Nott informed us that the Wright Brothers werent the first to fly. It was the French Montgolfier brothers in a hot

He would have been telling the religious and scientific worlds they were wrong. A tough thing to do. Julians father did not support his ballooning efforts, saying, No good will come of it. But when Julian met the Queen and introduced his father to Prince Charles, his dad decided perhaps it was a good thing. There was a standing ovation at the end of Notts speech a tribute indeed.

The Cancer Center of Sansum Clinic held its 6th Annual Exhibit & Reception of Art Heals. This was a new and exciting program to me. The exhibition represents the collective courage of students that have been touched by illness. Oncology programs coordinator Lisa Winebrenner gave me a tour and explained. Instructor Rick Stich holds weekly art classes all year round and has been doing it for 13 years. He likes sharing his creativity with the patients. At year s end, a new collection is installed in the halls of the Cancer Center where they remain until the next December. The exhibit keeps on giving all year, providing a source of inspiration for not only patients, but also family members 

and staff. The students demonstrate the power of the creative process and the role art plays in health and healing. Patients, survivors, caregivers, and community members that participate in creative art classes at the Cancer Center composed the paintings. These watercolors were mostly created by beginning students and were surprisingly good. I say that knowing how bad I am. I draw stick figures. Credit should also go to Martha Inman Lorch, a committed volunteer assistant instructor in the art class. Then there is Nancy Rogers, who brings her expertise to frame and mat each piece making the painting look its best. There were 20 artists participating who would echo what survivor Susanne VonDuinwink said: To enter the art room, one finds a joyful peace. MJ 9 16 January 2014

They liked the accurate readings of peoples aura colors and the detailed information they provide about ones life path, personality, relationships, career potential and much more. I will be on for six to seven minutes, which will include reading the auras of two audience members. It is obviously great exposure, but it will also be a challenge given Ive only got sixty seconds or so with each of the audience members. Sometimes my readings take an hour or longer. It would seem appropriate that former Oscar presenter Whoopi is hosting the segment, given she starred as a psychic in the 1990 hit Jerry Zucker directed film Ghost with Demi Moore and the late Patrick Swayze, which landed her an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

Reclusive heiress Huguette Clarks estate is being sued by nurse Geraldine Coffey

STATE FARM YOUTH ADVISORY BOARD AND KIDS HELPING KIDS PRESENT:

Coffey Versus Clark A nurse who cared for reclusive heiress Huguette Clark for 20 years before she died leaving $300 million is suing her estate for a slice of the fortune. Geraldine Coffey earned $130,000 a year looking after the copper heiress and received more than $1.5 million in gifts over her lifetime. But the night nurse, who claims Clark promised to provide for her, is now reportedly suing her late bosss estate after receiving nothing in Clarks will. Coffey, who looked after her until she died aged 104 in 2011, says she was left out of the wrangling last fall over two wills written by the wealthy woman in 2005 when she was 99. Her legacy left millions to former members of staff and philanthropic organizations, rather than her distant family members, many of whom she had never met, but are battling for a share of the cash. Clarks former employees say they were given gifts by their employer, and last September a deal was agreed between many of them and the heiress estate and relatives. In the deal, Clarks lawyer, Wallace Bock, and accountant, Irving Kamsler, were cut out of $1 million gifts in exchange for a promise they would not be involved in any future litigation. But Irish immigrant Coffey says she was left out of negotiations and thus received nothing. Meanwhile lawyers for the estate are 9 16 January 2014

accusing her of causing Clark anxiety and distress by nagging her to give her a $7.5 million apartment, it was reported, and putting her own needs before her elderly patients. In court papers attorney John Morken alleges: While purportedly caring for Clark, Geraldine repeatedly pressured her patient to make gifts to and for the benefit of her family. At that time Mrs. Clark was reported in nurses notes to be confused during the night and delusional. But Coffey, who is being sued to return gifts said to include $385,000 to buy real estate in New York and $85,000 for school fees for her children, is reportedly refusing to sign off on the deal. She denies the allegations, claiming Bock and Kamsler were heavily involved in the allegations that she pressured Clark to hand over some of her fortune. Coffey worked 12-hour days for Clark, the childless daughter of senator and industrialist William Clark, who made a fortune in mining and railroads. Clark lived alone in a 42-room Manhattan apartment overlooking Central Park with only her extensive collection of dolls and a nurse for company. The case is being heard in New York later this week... A Particular Pair They are both celebrity rock stars in their own right. So it seems that dynamic duo Katy Perry and John Mayer come with their own individual list of diva demands too. They might not be such a down to earth couple after all, according to the entertainment glossy Life & Style. The magazine claims Mayer always requests a bottle of Lagavulin 16 scotch, water, soda and a full fruit platter in his dressing room at all times. Meanwhile, former Dos Pueblos High student Katy is said to have a penchant for ranch dressing, six types of drinks, a directors chair and a cof-

Rational Not Emotional

I just got to the editorial from a recent Montecito Journal (Heres Our Plan For 101, MJ # 19/50). Bravo! It is long overdue to have a sane voice on this matter. The community desperately needs the widening, and it should be done in a way to provide the safest travel for all. Thank you for advocating a rational, rather than emotional, approach.

Support For Bob

We write in support of Bob Hazards recent editorial (My Take: To Widen or Not to Widen the 101, MJ # 19/49), which points out, among other things, that the best kept secret of the Montecito Associations Coalition Plan for the Highway 101 widening is that it does not include a new southbound on-ramp at Cabrillo. We live and work on Coast Village Road and have witnessed firsthand the increase in traffic and congestion. The 1.2 million cars per year that previously used the on-ramp are now clogging not only Coast Village Road but neighboring streets as well. The increased volume of traffic is discouraging commerce and degrading our neighborhood. Lets use some common sense and replace the much needed southbound on-ramp as proposed in the Caltrans F-Modified

We so enjoyed reading the excellent article written by young Tyler Greenwald on the Santa Barbara High School theater program and its masterful director Otto Layman (On Theatre, SBHS Theatre: A LifeChanging Experience?, MJ # 19/50). As a teacher and mentor, Mr. Layman deserves enormous praise and appreciation from this community and the young people he has inspired and guided over the years not just for the wonderful plays and musicals he produces with them, but for a much greater gift that he gives. Tyler asked if the Santa Barbara High School theater program is life-changing. Does it deliver more than just applause? he asks. The answer to that question is a resounding Yes! Three of our four sons attended Santa Barbara High School. Our son Wyatt, who is developmentally disabled as a result of an illness as a baby, was placed in special classes as well as mainstream classes. For much of high school, he was lonely, isolated, and terribly hurt when he was the subject of taunts from some of his classmates. We tried hard to find activities he could be a part of if not a central teammate or participant. When Wyatt was a senior, Otto Layman was open to having him in his theater class and vowed to find a role for him in the stage crew or other part of the production they were doing that year. Through Ottos efforts, Wyatt became a real part of the group. He ended up with a small speaking part and attended all rehearsals and performances. He was voted most improved and received a wonderful

cement gargoyle as a trophy from the group. It sits today in a place of honor in his apartment. It was the happiest we ever saw our child during all his years of school and all the hardships he endured to overcome his disabilities and become independent. The other members of the class gained as much as Wyatt did by learning that despite his disabilities he was a smart, funny, pretty cool guy after all. Today Wyatt is 34, lives in the Bay Area in an apartment with a roommate, and has a job and a girlfriend. A big part of his journey and heroic efforts to accomplish independence was the confidence Otto Layman instilled in him by including Wyatt in his class and nurturing both him and his classmates to have it be a positive life experience for all of them. We can never thank Otto Layman enough. He deserves every good review he gets as a director, as a teacher, and as a man. Kip, Kim, Christian, Kas, Wyatt, and Alex Seefeld Montecito

Cottage Hospital is closing the Subacute Unit at the Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital.

As a result of the closure, on December 10, 2013,Cottage Hospital announced that all residents will be relocated to St. Johns Hospital in Camarillo. Many of the patients do not wish to leave Santa Barbara, but there are no other Subacute Units nearby.

So now the plan to move downtown isout. Now the residents of the

I joined five neighbors attending a meeting with Salud Carbajal and his assistant recently to express our ongoing concern over the antenna cell phone towers scheduled to blanket Montecito in the coming months. Mainly, we wanted to hear Saluds thoughts. Basically, Federal Communications cut local government jurisdiction, limiting communities to visual effects only. The community can mount a land use matter to examine the issues, but we only have latitude with visuals. We could plea neighborhood compatibility, but its an impossible uphill battle. The Montecito Board of Architectural Review (MBAR) could disagree with Crown Castle, leading to possible litigation, although the chance of losing is 99 percent. The underground utility pole idea fizzled when the price tag was $60 to $80 million (for all of Montecito). Individual streets with neighbors pooling expenses never got anywhere. The sad thing is that once Verizon puts up their boxes, there is nothing to stop other companies from boosting their power; then the feel and look might be too much for the trees to cover up. Another idea bantered about was to couple utilities with the ongoing water pipe replacement project. By raising water rates, the district now has the funds to replace by prioritizing the oldest pipelines delivering to the most customers. The aging 23 miles of infrastructure was laid down in the 1920s. The idea to lay utility wires in the same trenches being opened up rests with Southern California Edison, but there are a number of problems. The new trenches are already wide as

Sarah House Success

Bah, Humbug

This is the time of year when many of us take a moment to remember those who made a difference in our lives, and with that in mind, Sarah House would like to thank the Montecito Journal. We are profoundly grateful for the many ways in which the Journal helped us share the light of Sarah House with the community. The center placement of our ad for the Northern Lights event and Debbie McQuades guest editorial (The Story of Sarah House, MJ # 19/46) was central in making this years event a success. In addition, we appreciate [MJ Founder] James Buckleys personal interest in the mission of Sarah House as a home and end-of-life care for people of low-income as well as providing care for men and women with HIV/AIDS. On behalf of the Board of Sarah House, thank you.

Indeed, the Christmas spirit lives.

Pop the Bubbly Music Academy of the West board member Robert Weinman got to show off his conducting skills at the Santa Barbara Symphonys sold-out New Years Eve Pops concert at the Granada. Former rocket scientist Robert, dashingly attired in candy stripe colors of red and white with matching red footwear, paid for the privilege of using the baton for the second consecutive year at a charity event in the fall and did a most commendable job with Sousas Stars and Stripes Forever. As the talented musicians vied with the sounds of popping champagne corks, noise makers and the rustle of party hats, jaunty guest conductor Bob Bernhardt, making his third consecutive appearance, took them through their paces with an eclectic program that went from George M. Cohan to Leonard Bernstein, Verdi, Glenn Miller, Morricone and John Williams, whose Olympic Fanfare

and Theme wrapped the two-hourlong concert. Five members of the State Street Ballet Ryan Camou, Anna Carnes, Lilit Hogtanian, Kate Kadow and John Christopher Piel added to the energized event dancing the tango and waltz. As usual, Bernhardt, music director emeritus and conductor of pops with the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera, delivered up a glorious musical feast to welcome in 2014...

In Passing
he greatness of a man can be measured by the lives of the people he has inspired, the beauty he created, and the realization of his dreams. Jim Burkemper was such a man and he left a legacy of pursuit and passion to guide those he loved. Jim was born and reared in St. Louis, Missouri. After attending the University of Chicago, he served in the United States Navy for four years. Then, Jim graduated from Washington University in St. Louis, where he met his beloved wife, Jane. Jim had a very successful career in real estate, serving as president of Ira E. Berry, Inc., the leading real estate firm in St. Louis, with over thirty-five offices nationwide. He was also president of the St. Louis Real Estate Board and received many local and national honors and awards. Jim and Jane were one of the cornerstone families of the St. Louis community, before they moved to Montecito in 1999. Contributing to the Santa Barbara community, Jim continued his passionate interests in philanthropy, theater, art, opera, and music. He also served on the board of directors for the Opera Theater of Santa Barbara. Jims number one interest and passion in life was his love for his wife, Jane; six children, Ira, Paul, Bruce, Hilary, Carrie, and Leslie; and ten grandchildren. His family lives respectively in Santa Barbara, Newport Beach, Denver, and St. Louis. Jim and Jane regularly attended Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Montecito. All who knew Jim were touched by his devotion, thoughtfulness, generosity, kindness, gentleness, keen sense of humor, and his true love for God and family. He will be greatly MJ missed by all of his loved ones and be in our prayers.

That would not only have been clumsy, but would also have entailed losing parking on Los Patos. Such a configuration would also create unnecessary havoc at the Las Aves commercial development and would likely disturb the creatures living in and around the Andre Clark Bird Refuge. The likelihood of such a traffic plan being actually approved by the Coastal Commission is zero to none. J.B.)  MJ 9 16 January 2014

his Christmas, the bone, ligament, and tendon gods were apparently looking out for me because there was not enough snow at Yosemites Badger Pass to open the ski area. Its not that Im a bad skier, its just that I seem to excel at falling. When regulars spot me, they often grab their GoPro cameras and follow me down the slope. Whoa, dude, that was awesome! A full split, double front somersault with a twist. And the ski poles sticking out of your ears. Brilliant! Of course, there are many other things to do in Yosemite in the winter besides skiing. Sometimes we hike. Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? No this is just the trail head. The head is at the bottom? Yes, just like yours when you tried snow tubing.

Theres No Business Like Snow Business

Fortunately, the scenery at Yosemite is incredible whether you are right side up or upside down, so this year we found a listing in the Yosemite Guide for a Camera Walk with a professional photographer. Unfortunately, it was at 9 am, a somewhat brisk time of day. Feels pretty warm out, I said. Im not even bringing my jacket. Hm, my wife said. She can be such a naysayer sometimes. Whheerrree the heecckkss the suuuuun? I asked. Takes a while to come up over the mountains, the guide said, slipping on her arctic gloves and hat. My wife pulled the hood up on her parka, as did many of the other Eskimolooking participants. I pulled the collar up on my polo shirt, which I wore beneath my golf sweater. If we hurry, the guide said, we can see the rainbow at the bottom of Yosemite Falls. Hurrying seemed like a good idea. So we all took three steps forward into a deep shady spot when a

woman said: We have to wait for my husband; hes using the restroom. Five minutes later I was afraid he might have gotten frozen to the toilet seat and I was going to suggest someone go back for a can of de-icer, but he showed up. Three steps later: Look, deer! Sure enough, a doe and her two doettes walked out from behind a tree. Wheres the dad? a shivering preteen girl whose parents had talked her into coming out in the predawn cold, which would probably come up in some future counseling session asked. The bucks usually stay by themselves during winter, the guide said. Probably having a stag party at a heated condo, playing cards, and drinking spiked eggnog, while discussing vacation options like the Florida Everglades. I suggested. I love Florida, the preteen said. We moved forward several more feet, rounded a corner and saw Yosemite Falls and the rainbow. I took about a thousand photos, mainly because my finger was stuck to the shutter release. We are going to cross the meadow now and head over the bridge, the guide said, great photo ops but it is the coldest part of the Valley. I waited for her to laugh but she didnt. Im going to the lodge for break-

fast. Try not to fall through any ice, My wife said. I joined her several hours later and she fed me breakfast because my hands didnt work. The next day we decided to try something else new snowshoeing. We met the Ranger at the bottom of Badger Pass and he outfitted about 80 of us with snowshoes and off we went. How much of this will be uphill? my wife asked All of it, said the Ranger. There was a collective groan. He did keep stopping to allow some of us to breathe again and to point out interesting trees and footprints. These middle prints are from a squirrel. These odd marks outside the footprints are owl wings. See how the squirrel prints end right here? Immediately I looked up to see if any owls were watching us. This caused me to fall over backwards and tumble into some trees. Say, isnt that Ernie? someone asked. Several people took out GoPro cameras and aimed them in my direction. Next year how about we join the stags in the Everglades? my wife said. Its flat and warm. Great. But if the alligators are wearing GoPros Im outta there. MJ

from Four Seasons representatives regarding plans to add three plunge pools on the Biltmore property. Biltmore rep Steve Welton and architect Paul Newton explained the plans, which will place three spa-like structures (referred to as plunge pools) on three patios adjacent to three of the Biltmore guest cottages. Two of the pool additions require setback modifications; the third was not discussed because it is within the property line. The two pools requiring modifications will be located on the patios of the Fremont and Ortega Cottages. Newton plans to extend the patios of both cottages, pushing out the fence line about 10 feet, which will encroach on the front setback of Hill Road. The fence height and design will remain, as well as the landscaping, Newton said. The 48-inch deep spas will have jets, Newton said, but screening and technology will ensure they do not create excess noise. The MBAR members, who were looking at the project for conceptual review, asked the reps for a more detailed landscape plan, and said they will each make a point to walk or drive by the area to get a better idea of the impact on the neighborhood.

Crown Castle Back at MBAR

Also on Monday, January 6, Crown Castle rep Sharon James was back in front of MBAR, where nine more Montecito antenna sites were discussed. Crown Castle is proposing a 29-site Distributed Antenna System (D.A.S), which requires 2-ft long antennas to be placed on existing utility poles; the project also includes a small utility box, which, on most sites, will be located underground. The project is to allow Verizon Wireless to have stronger signal strength in Montecito. In December, MBAR looked at the projects 11 coastal sites, and gave suggestions on how to minimize the networks impact on the community.

The inland sites have been broken up into two MBAR meetings; Mondays agenda listed sites on Sheffield Drive, Lilac Drive, Birnam Wood, Park Lane, Bella Vista, Romero Canyon, and a new pole at 935 Park Lane. Several neighbors were at the meeting, asking Ms James to make modifications to the sites to make them less noticeable. MBAR asked James and planner Megan Lowery to consider reducing the size of the network, and moving various controversial poles. Several members of MBAR said they would not be able to support the placement of a new pole on Park Lane. Its an intrusion into that space, said Claire Gottsdanker. Its a scenic, beautiful vista, and I cannot support a utility pole there, she said. The owner of the property agreed, and called Crown Castle irresponsible for even suggesting a new pole be erected. Lowery and James will be back at MBAR next Monday, January 13, for a special meeting. At that time the remaining nine sites will be discussed (Orchard Avenue, Bella Vista Drive, Romero Canyon Road, Camino del Rosario, Veloz Drive, Lilac Drive, and Tollis Avenue), and James will give an update of the neighbor requests to move or eliminate poles within the proposed network. The project is expected to be heard by Montecito Planning Commission in March. Next Mondays meeting is at 1 pm in the Board of Supervisors Hearing Room, 105 East Anapamu Street, 4th Floor.

A TREE LOVER ALERT


1. If you own a big pine tree or cypress, just know they are under serious attach by the TERPINTINE BEETLE....It can be stopped if I am called ASAP. We are losing at least one big pine tree a day here in town. If you wait, itll too late! 2. One third of the oaks in San Diego have died because of the 2 SPOTTED OAK BORER.(check google) and Santa Barbara is where these insects are headed to. Field tests show this insect infestation can be halted if we can stop these victors from hatching their eggs on your oaks. Call me for more information and inspection. 3. This is a very serious drought!!..Oaks, olives and acacias are really suffering.. The upshot of this problem is LEAF FUNGUS on oaks called (cryptocline)Clumps of dead leaves must be cut out of the tree and sprayed as it can spread over and take the whole canopy. A deep root water and feeding is a MUST at this time.

I first met Bill Richardson when I worked up the courage to ask his beautiful daughter, Jolie, out to dinner. I was seventeen, just beginning to learn who I was and what a man was. My glimpses of Bill are vivid and had a profound effect on me. They still do. In the candlelight at a restaurant in Ojai, she told me that for their meat, her father, along with his dogs, would run through the backcountry, hunting wild boar with a knife. Theyd ride their horses deep into the desert mountains north of Santa Barbara. She made a lean fist with her hand and held it up for me, coiled at the end of her arm; it was a rattlesnake standing his ground in the dust on the trail one day. I thought of Bill many times when I was alone, learning what a man was and how to pray and survive in those mountains. Bill and my father fought against an enemy in WWII that wanted to bring hell to earth and rule over it. Bill received a Purple Heart at Iwo Jima. My Dad fought the Nazis and he was my hero, but I grew up in the sixties and seventies thinking rock musicians and Hells Angels were what a man was. Like men that go to war, it all turned out to be very different from what I thought. Sometimes a father has to let his son find his own way. If I had known Bill Richardson in more than glimpses, I think I would have made more beauty on earth. He would have shown me different glimpses of what a man was. The first time I witnessed Bill dance was after I had composed a piece for a ballet in Santa Barbara. I sat in the audience at the Lobero and watched as he held the prima ballerinas waist and danced with her across the stage. He held her in the air as she sprang like a gazelle, and then with no anticipation, in her final leap, she just kept going up, floating above his head like an angel in his arms. He was so strong. I love telling people about it

William Richardson was born March 16, 1926, and passed away December 14, 2013

and Ill never forget it. In awe after he did this, I glimpsed over my shoulder and met the eyes of this dignified and beautiful South American woman and thought, This is the kind of woman I want to marry, and years later, I did. I wish I had walked a few doors down on Mountain Drive, knocked on Bills door, and asked him what a man was. Its taken me fifty years to find out, and ironically, its a virgin thats shown me, the Virgin Mary, but in Bill I saw glimpses. Ill end with a glimpse my mother had of Bill. He was her creative writing teacher. She would come home from his class on the bus and walk up Hot Springs Road glowing with a joy and excitement I loved seeing in her. One day, she told me the class was debating about a right wed been given that she thought only God should have. My mom said the usual arguments for and against and leapt back and forth across the classroom floor, while Bill sat still, watching. He had a look on his face, she said. Im not sure what it was, but it felt like exasperation. Bill was tall, and without anticipation, she said, he rose with his hands at his sides and in a shrug said in a deep voice, Everybody knows its wrong! She said there was this effect like suddenly they were all humbled. I cant judge anybody, because Im one of them, but I think Bill would have told me that to rise up for what is highest, what is most beautiful and true, is what a man is.

Harold Clark Simmons (1931-2013)


Entrepreneur and philanthropist Harold Clark Simmons, 82, passed away peacefully on December 28, 2013, surrounded by his wife and children. Their primary residence was in Dallas, Texas, but he and his wife also owned an estate in Montecito. As one of three sons, Harold was born on May 13, 1931 to strong rural Texas schoolteachers, Reuben Leon and Fairess Clark. At the age of 16, Harold and his family moved from Golden, Texas to a community near Austin, where he enrolled at the University of Texas and was a member of the Southwest Conference championship basketball team of 1951. He then earned his bachelors and masters degrees and was awarded a Phi Beta Kappa key. Mr. Simmons first job was as an investigator for the U.S. Civil Service Commission, then as an Assistant Bank Examiner at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation and an assistant loan officer at Republic National Bank. After five years, he decided he would rather work for himself. So at age 29, Harold became an entrepreneur when he purchased a small drugstore near SMU in Dallas. In 1966, he began to acquire other drugstores, including Williams Drug Co., Wards Cut-Rate Drug Stores, and MadiganDugan. He ultimately built a chain of 100 drugstores that he sold in 1973 for $50 million to Eckerd Corporation for stock. Mr. Simmons was founder, chairman, and CEO of Contran Corporation, a holding company that over the years held interests in a variety of industries, including chemicals, titanium metals, steel, component products, hazardous and low level radioactive disposal, refined sugar, timber and forest products, fast food restaurants, oil and gas services, real estate, and others. Mr. Simmons was actively involved in philanthropy with his wife, Annette, and served on various honorary and executive boards. He was a man of few words but giant actions. He once said, Life has been good to me, and I want to be good to life. This philosophy led to the establishment of The Harold Simmons Foundation in 1988, for which he served as chairman. The Foundation focuses on education, health care, social welfare, civic improvement, and the arts and has generously provided funding for a great many charitable institutions, including the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa. Harold was a well-known and sometimes outspoken top GOP donor, friend to politicians and presidents, a 9 16 January 2014

proud Texan, and a patriot whose eyes would fill upon hearing the national anthem. He traveled a long way from his East Texas childhood days to become a successful businessman, a champion tennis player, a jet pilot, and later in life, a passionate golfer. Harold Simmons will be greatly missed by his family, his friends, his state, and his country. He is survived by his loving, gentle, resilient, and faithful wife of 33 years, Annette Caldwell Simmons, his children Lisa Simmons and her son, Harrison Simmons Epstein, Serena Simmons Connelly and her husband Thomas

The Kavli Institute of Theoretical Physics (KITP) is the only of its kind in the country. Fred Kavli, philanthropist and founder of the Kavli Foundation, passed away on November 21. His foundation established institutes around the globe including the one at UCSB that continue his mission. Hundreds of the top physicists in the world come to KITP at UCSB to speak about the latest findings in physics, especially about data culled from the Large Hadron Collider, to try to prove or disprove the validity of String Theory. UCSB has an entire team that oversees part of the Hadron Collider and analyzes data. Speakers at KITP have included astronaut John Grunsfeld, Brian Greene, and Stephen Hawking. Anyone can become a friend of the Kavli Institute and attend these informative talks. The year-end Friends of KITP event was held in Montecito at the estate of Michael and Nancy Gifford. Michael has been a member and supporter of KITP for over five years. Members in attendance included UCSB Chancellor Henry Yang and his wife Dillon Yang, co-founder of Friends of KITP Virginia Castagnola Hunter, KITP Director Lars Bildsten, Derek and Beth Westen, Marty Einhorn, Debbie and John Mackall, Sarah Vaughan, and Hallie Anderson.

With their oldest son, 20-yearold Matthew, already out of home, studying at North Carolinas Duke University, and their 18-year-old John Owen not far behind, the couple is rediscovering their lives as soon-to-be empty nesters.

Kids Helping Kids
im Lopez was thrilled to be asked to perform at the fifth annual Kids Helping Kids concert at the Granada Theatre on Saturday night, January 11, and not because the guitarist-singer-songwriter of the veteran pop band Plain White Ts wanted to rekindle his days as a student at San Marcos High School. I remember my econ class and it was frightfully dull, Lopez said over the phone in late December. So its awesome that Jamie DeVries (the San Marcos teacher who created the Kids Helping Kids program as a fully student-run organization and production company) is teaching these kids this way. Its such a rad method. I mean, no offense to Mr. Ridley, but it wasnt his favorite class either. The Kids Helping Kids event, which will be headlined by Andy Grammer, also features the high schools talent show winner, a choral group, and lots of silent auction items, in a real-world test for the students enrolled in the honors class. But both teachers would have to be proud of the way things turned out for Lopez. For the past decade, hes been an integral member of Plain White Ts, who scored major hits with the pop ditty 1-2-3-4 and the Lopezcomposed Rhythm of Love. But PWT wasnt his first brush with the music business. The sixth generation Santa Barbara native formed his first band, Bright Life, fresh out of high school with a couple of former classmates. But things burned out quickly. We made an album that we recorded on my parents street, then got signed to Capitol on a development deal, Lopez recalled. But when we went out on tour, we started bickering like crazy and ended the band. A sad tale, but its also how Lopez hooked up with Plain White Ts, a Chicago-based group fronted by Tom Higgenson (and formed with his high school friends) that had already scored with the single Hey There Delilah. The two bands shared a manager and Bright Lifes demise came at an opportune moment, Lopez explained. They lost their guitarist just when we dismantled. I did one rehearsal and, boom, I was in the band. No one was more surprised than Lopez, who admits he wasnt even a fan of PWT at the time. For me, it was a job, a way to get out and tour and see the country as a musician. I just wanted the experience. I never thought Id be in it for a decade, and eventually become a main songwriter for the band. If joining Plain White Ts came out

of left field, what happened for Lopez last spring and summer wasnt even in the ballpark. Thats when the musician who moved to Austin five years ago at age 27 after his marriage dissolved in Santa Barbara starred on Ready for Love, a The Bachelor-inspired TV show produced by Eva Longoria for NBC. Really? A rock star needs help getting a date? I couldnt imagine myself doing it either, Lopez said with a laugh. When it originally came up, it was kind of a joke, just talking about it for fun. I was worried it might take away from my credibility as an artist, but the band and my friends all supported me. And I figured at worst it would be an experience. Id date a few girls and see if anyone livened me up. The series was canceled after only three episodes aired, but Lopez found something that has already lasted a lot longer: a romantic relationship that passed the nine-month mark over the holidays. It wouldve been harder for us to continue our relationship if the show blew up, Lopez admitted. And even though [the show] had very low numbers, I still get recognized at airports for Ready for Love ten times as often as for Plain White Ts. So Im glad it happened on such a small scale. As if finding the possible love of his life werent enough, Lopez also received another unexpected gift from the TV experience. I was outside my comfort zone the entire time, extremely nervous and awkward. But coming out the other side, Ive gained a lot. I can walk into any situation

and just feel comfortable with myself. Seriously, how much more challenging than [starting a relationship on TV] can things be? To top off his 2013, four of Lopezs songs wound up on American Nights, Plain White Ts next album due out in the spring, twice as many as appeared on any previous album. Three were inspired by his new relationship, while Giving Tree was a reaction to running into one of his exes back in Santa Barbara. Dance Off Time relays his connection with his new love even when the steps might not fit, Here Comes That Sunrise chronicles leaving behind the dark period before he met her, and Havent Told Her is about his reluctance to say the three little words to Jenna too soon. I was on a high. I started writing it right after we finished the show. At that point I hadnt yet told her that I loved her, and its that feeling that if you say too much too early they might backpedal. But I was so excited about the relationship and was falling in love with her. So its a pretty simple sentiment. Which could describe most of Plain White Ts radio hits. But at the Granada, Lopez plans to unveil a somewhat harder rocking new band. Or actually, an old one, updated: hes hooked up again with his old band mates from Bright Life plus two other musician friends from Austin in an as yet unnamed project. When we broke up the first time, it was just a tough stage in life, and we had so much on the line that the pressure was pretty tough, he said. But now were all in a good place, and coming together again feels right. Weve got about ten songs weve done together and are hoping to cut a record next year, he said. What you likely wont hear, however, is Delilah or 1-2-3-4, as Lopez is reluctant to perform songs that were written and sung by Higgenson. Unless I can convince him to come up and play with me, just sit on the stage and sing them. That would be cool. Given Kids Helping Kids track

The Flavor of Red

Christopher Pilafians first new work for Santa Barbara Dance Theater after he stepped in as artistic director in late 2012 was descriptively named Leap of Faith. The title represented both the dancers aerial adventures and the trust between the performers and the choreographer, and that leap landed well on local audiences, who gave the work a warm welcome. Now, a year later, the annual SBDT concert is titled much more nebulously Time in Motion, although it just as easily could have been called Leaping Deeper, as Lindsay Mason has joined Kyle Castillo, Monica Ford, Tracy R. Kofford, and Christina Sanchez as the companys newest permanent member. We checked in with Pilafian to find out how bumping up the companys roster has played out, and delve into the new works, which will be performed Wednesday through Sunday, January 15 to 19, at UCSBs Hatlen Theater on campus. Q. Whats special about the companys new dancer? A. Lindsay was a talented dance major who graduated in 2011 and then worked with the Nebula Dance Lab in town. As an educator, its very exciting to see what growth steps occur for a recent graduate of the program. She works really well with us. Shes intelligent, focused motivated and gifted and you can see all that in the studio. Having her in the company balances the artistic maturity of Christina and Monicas liquid exotic grace.

THURSDAY, JANUARY 9 But what I really want to do... As thrilling as it is to sell a screenplay, it can also be agony to see what the director and his team end up doing to the script before it hits theaters. And with the advent of digital lmmaking, more writers than ever are able to shoot their own scripts. So its not that farfetched that the Screenwriters Association of Santa Barbara opens 2014 with Jim Pasternaks Writers! Direct Your Screenplays! Pasternak a member of the directing faculty at the Los Angeles Film School who offers master classes around the world specializes in teaching screenwriters how to become directors, training new directors on the ins and outs of helming short lms or rst features. He helped Catherine Hardwicke (13, Lords of Dogtown) transition from production designer to director, while two of his students have won Oscars: Christine Lahti for Lieberman in Love and Ray McKinnon for The Accountant. Pasternak himself recently directed Certiably Jonathan, a documentary comedy feature starring Jonathan Winters (the recently deceased longtime Montecito resident), Robin Williams, Sarah Silverman, and Howie Mandel, and One Hell of a Guy, starring village resident Rob Lowe and Michael York. He also wrote the nal draft of Cousins, directed by Joel Schumacher, with Ted Danson and Isabella Rossellini. WHEN: 7pm WHERE: Brooks

Institute, 27 East Cota Street COST: free INFO: 617-4503 or www.screenwriterssb. org FRIDAY, JANUARY 10 Bach to Flentrop The Flentrop Organ might be one of UCSBs best-kept secrets. The organ, which was made by the Dutch organ company that shares its name and is based on baroque models from the instruments inception, has fallen in and out of favor since arriving on campus in 1972. Currently residing behind a wall at the Lotte Lehmann Concert Hall, the Flentrop has been played by both students and faculty over the years including an inaugural concert by Larry Moe and recitals with world renowned organists Albert Campbell, Ennis Fruhauf, and Dame Gillian Weir. Now, former university organist and carillonist (19771993) Dr. James Welch returns to campus to perform on the Flentrop, showcasing a set of Bach compositions specically written for the Flentrop along with some contemporary pieces tailored for the instrument. The event honors the contributions of Karl Geiringer to the Music Department and also features a short lecture by UCSB alumnus Edward Johnson. Presented in association with the American Guild of Organists. WHEN: 7:30pm WHERE: Lehman Hall, UCSB

Harbison & Harmonia Its already been a busy year for Camerata Pacica. Santa Barbaras 24-year-old chamber music ensemble jetted off to New York to record its rst commercial recording for Harmonia Mundi, featuring the music of modern composer John Harbison (promptly getting stuck in a snowstorm that blanketed the city last weekend) and is returning just in time to play a meaty (and mightily romantic) program that includes Harbisons piano quintet. Also on the bill: violinist Amy Schwartz Moretti, cellist Amy Schwartz Moretti and pianist Warren Jones playing Haydns C Major Piano Trio, Hob 27, and violinist Paul Huang and violists Richard ONeill and Jonathan Moerschel joining Moretti and Aznavoorian for Brahms G Major String Quintet, Op. 111, both before intermission, before the Americans take over the second half. ONeill and pianist Warren Jones play Elliott Carters Elegy for Viola & Piano, followed by the Harbison quintet.

Each of the well-established local artists have made music on their own for years, each has also put out at least a couple self-produced CDs, and all three have been deeply involved in local song circles and the renowned songwriters workshop known as SummerSongs West. The trio also form the nucleus of the Honeysuckle Possums named after the Australian honey possum, the nectar-drinking smallest marsupial in the world a sort-of Santa Barbara singer-songwriter supergroup thats full of wit, whimsy, and lots of foot-stomping good times. That latter part comes mostly courtesy of Ruth Alpert, who offers Appalachianstyle atfooting, teaming with bassist Lisa Macker to form the Possums recently-added rhythm section. With the new lineup intact and fresh off several gigs all over town, the Honeysuckle Possums are set to bring their blend of old-time American, country, Irish, and original acoustic music augmented with gorgeous carefully-constructed harmonies to the Song Tree Concert Series in Goleta tonight.

Grammy nominee, for free La Santa Cecilia, whose latest release Treinta Das has been nominated for a 2014 Grammy for Best Latin Alternative Album, kicks off the new year as the rst performer in the popular Viva el Arte de Santa Brbara! concert series. The group, which was also nominated for Best Tropical Song in 2012 (La Negra) and was named Best Alternative Latin Band by LA Weekly that same year, will play in Goleta tonight, Guadalupe tomorrow, and Isla Vista on Sunday with free refreshments and photos with the artists offered at post-show receptions. The new album features a duet and co-writing with Elvis Costello and La Santa Cecilia lead singer La Marisoul on Losing Game, reciprocation for La Marisouls contributions on Costellos recent collaboration with The Roots, Wise Up Ghost. Meanwhile, the protest song El Hielo (ICE) has a deeply personal resonance for the band, some of whose members entered the U.S. as children without documentation. Since its release last spring, the song has become an unofcial anthem for immigration reform, and La Santa Cecilia has taken it across the country performing at rallies and events including the May Day march through downtown L.A. La Santa Cecilia named for the patron saint of music and musicians features a hybrid of Latin culture, rock, and world music, the result an upbeat, dance-ready sound that utilizes pan-American rhythms like cumbia, bossa nova, rumba, bolero, tango, jazz, jarocho, rock, and klezmer.

Grizzlies, Piranhas, and Pigs, oh my It doesnt have quite the ring of The Wizard of Ozs lions and tigers and bears, but photographerconservationist Joel Sartores tales of Close Encounters with the angry and/or hungry animals (the pig is the man-eating variety) are thrilling and gripping nonetheless. Sartore, who is coming to town as part of the National Geographic Live series from UCSB Arts & Lectures (hes a 20-year contributor to the magazine), has repeatedly put himself at risk to get the story, including dancing with rattlesnakes, surviving multiple trafc accidents all around the world, and encountering all of the above animals. Hes suffered infection by a esh-eating parasite, and experienced a Marburg virus scare (bat guano!) that caused the Center for Disease Control to airlift him from assignment and quarantine him for three weeks. You might wonder why. Simple, says Sartore its the desire to document endangered species and incredible landscapes that show a world well worth saving. One of Sartores current projects is taking him to zoos around the world to photograph the planets entire spectrum of endangered species for his ongoing Photo Ark project. Indeed, as part of his visit to town, hell take pictures of animals at the Santa Barbara Zoo, adding to the intimate, studio portrait-like photos of nearly 3,000 animal species already on le in order to draw attention to the loss of global biodiversity. Sartore is also the author of books including Lets Be Reasonable and RARE: Portraits of Americas Endangered Species; hell sign copies after the illustrated talk.

Well versed in Stanzas Poet Wallace Levines early experiences as an autoworker and a succession of other industrial jobs provided the grist for gritty, ercely unpretentious free verse about American manliness, physical labor, simple pleasures, and profound grief, said Publishers Weekly of the 2011-12 U.S. Poet Laureate, who has also won a Pulitzer Prize. Levine the author of 20 poetry collections including News of the World, The Simple Truth, and What Work Is had a vision even back then, though, that the work served a higher purpose: I believed that if I could transform my experience into poetry I would give it the value and dignity it did not begin to possess on its own. I thought too that if I could write about it I could come to understand it. His ethos has spurred The New York Times to call Levine a large, ironic Whitman of the industrial heartland quintessentially urban. Levine, who taught at California State Fresno for more than 30 years, recently won the 2013 Wallace Stevens Award, which comes with a $100,000 prize. Hell read from his works in the New Vic, the just-renovated theater thats far more intimate than UCSBs Campbell Hall, and a far cry from his roots in Detroit. Levine will also sign books at the end of the evening, produced by UCSB Arts & Lectures.

Youve got two new pieces on the program. What was the genesis? If Leap of Faith was a gettingto-know-you piece, than these pieces are more Who are we if...? The incentive grew from my response to the color red, which emerged as a jumping off point. I didnt realize they were going to be two different pieces at first, but after working in the studio they grew that way naturally. Theyre unspooling in different ways, related but quite distinct. How is the color red involved? Its highly subjective. I woke up one day and the color red presented itself as asking for attention. I was reading the book A Perfect Red about the history of dye and pigment through the ages. Theres no linear link, its more a sensory channel, like a quantum leap. The pieces both string from red and are about it, but not in an obvious way. Id like to have a red floor and red backdrop, but Im not sure that will happen. The fantasy is to create a world that is steeped and saturated in red to see where that takes us. Well actualize as much of that as we can given our budget.

Classical Corner

The closing of the Lobero Theatre for the last half of 2013 forced a lot of arts organizations to make other plans during that span. But now that its back, chamber music lovers get to enjoy a full season of CAMAs Masterseries concerts in a few short months. The treasure trove opens with the nonpareil Kalichstein-LaredoRobinson Trio, who are still going strong and enthralling audiences 36 years after debuting at the White House. The threesome who are brilliant soloists that create a group somehow clearly greater than the sum of its parts through the joy in collaborating play a tasty program meaty with the masters on Saturday night: Schuberts Notturno (Adagio) in E-flat Major, Op. 148 (D. 897); Mendelssohns Piano Trio No. 2 in C minor, Op. 66; and Brahms Trio in B Major, Op. 8, rev. 1891. Next up for CAMA at the Lobero are two consecutive MacArthur Fellowship Genius Awardwinners: mandolinist Chris Thile, who wowed the crowd with the Punch Brothers last winter, on

February 11, and pianist Stephen Hough, winner of eight Gramophone Awards among his 50 recordings, on April 8. The equally brilliant pianist Richard Goode closes out the season with an all-Beethoven program on May 14. Contact the Lobero at 963-0761 or www.lobero.com for tickets or for more information call CAMA at 966-4324 or www.camasb.org

Jazz Giant

The Santa Barbara Jazz Societys January concert kicks off 2014 with the great L.A.-based singer Barbara Morrison . The Detroit-raised Morrison eschewed Motown for a foray into jazz and blues when she moved to Los Angeles at 21, and in the ensuing 40-plus years has had quite a career. Shes sung with everyone from Dizzy Gillespie, Count Basie, and Kenny Burrell to Ray Charles, Etta James, and Mel Torm, to name just a few. More recently, shes been running her own theater, the Barbara Morrison Performing Arts Center, as well as playing with Jack Hale, a guitarist/arranger who favors swing styles from the 1920s-50s. We expect well see lots of sides to her when she plays SOhO on Sunday afternoon, January 12.

No saving sinking ships for Speaking of Stories. The spoken word series launches its 20th anniversary season with the latest of edition of Nothing But Laughs, featuring stories from the lighter side of life aiming to tickle the literary funny bone.
