Three large dogs mauled a 46-year-old
Santa Barbara woman on 11/5 in the yard of
a Dibblee Avenue home. The woman had
entered the house to feed the residence’s
five dogs, which were pit bulls and pit bull
mixes, while their owner was out of town.
As she exited, three of the dogs began nip-
ping at her feet before violently biting her
legs. The woman screamed for help, and
two neighbors helped pull her from the
yard. Responding police and animal-control
officers used pepper spray and tranquil-
izers to subdue the animals. All five have
been placed under mandatory quarantine
as officials decide whether to deem them
“vicious.” The victim remains hospitalized
with severe injuries to her legs.

the number of bathrooms from 19 to 12.

Classrooms “resemble more of a work-place or company than a traditional school,” said
Head of School Patricia M. Colby in a prepared statement on the Montessori philosophy.
With a 12:1 student-teacher ratio, the nonprofit institution teaches students via multiage
grouping in which older children help younger ones master classroom tasks under the guid-
ance of a teacher and an assistant teacher who facilitate each child’s learning pace. Students
are clustered into three levels: primary (3-6 years), lower elementary (6-9 years), and upper
elementary (9-12 years).
Key to Montessori’s project-based ideology are aesthetic learning objects such as colorful
moveable alphabet letters and geometric blocks, which reappear at different levels of the
curriculum like motifs. According to Colby, the Montessori method develops goal-oriented
thinking patterns in students, preparing them for future success. Rather than letter-grade

immersion elementary school, became Adelante Charter School
and adopted a 90:10 two-way immersion method between Spanish
and English. At Adelante, 90 percent of instruction is given in Spanish
from kindergarten to 1st grade. Instruction time in English gradually
increases until 5th and 6th grade, when class is taught equally in Spanish It’s the perfect opportunity

appointment. all members of the Santa Barbara School of Squash (SBSOS), a unique, 9-year-old nonprofit
that tutors disadvantaged South Coast youth while coaching them in a niche sport that may
one day help them get into college.
David Quintero is a senior at
San Marcos High School. He’s
been with the program seven
santa BarBara sChool of
years, and next week he’s visiting squash, a new path to College
Bates College, a private Maine
university where the squash coach by tyLer hayden
wants him for the team. After that,
he’s checking out the University of Connecticut. “Yeah, I’m really excited,” he said with a big
nod and grin. Quintero explained SBSOS played no small part in getting his grades to where
they are now, and it has allowed him to travel for tournaments, which introduced him to
people and places he’d otherwise never experience.“It’s helped me a lot,” he said.
Right now the Santa Barbara program — under the umbrella of the National Urban
Squash + Education Association and its 20 locations across the country — serves 33 students
from 15 different schools around the South Coast. Each of them lives below the poverty line.
Participants are required to complete 100 hours of academics, 100 hours of squash, and 15
hours of community service every year, while 30 volunteer tutors — ranging from former
college professors to high school students — monitor their grades every week and provide
extra help as needed.
In addition to its home at the Santa Barbara Athletic Club, which donates court time dur-
ing slow hours, SBSOS operates from the Louise Lowry Davis Center and the Santa Barbara
YMCA. Every so often, the kids go on field trips to places such as the Museum of Natural
History or a soccer game in Ventura. Parents pay an annual fee of just $25.
Between drills on Saturday, Franklin Elementary School student Monica Paredez sits on
a bench with her feet dangling and twirls her racket in her hands. She’s wearing the same eye
protection and navy shirt sported by the rest of the kids. Paredez, 9, talks about how SBSOS’s
tutors have improved her reading and writing and how she and her teammates have “lots of
fun” every time they get together. No one else at Franklin plays squash, she said, but now that
they’ve heard her talk about it so much, they want to try.
Familiar to relatively few West Coasters, and then usually as just a cousin of sorts to rac-
quetball, squash is a much bigger deal on the East Coast and in other countries, especially
Egypt and England. Merith Velasquez, a 15-year-old Laguna Blanca student with braces and
dreams of becoming an engineer, said she’s excited to see how the sport is played in other
parts of the country when she starts touring colleges.
Velasquez has been with SBSOS a year and is one of six students to receive a scholarship
to Laguna Blanca with its help. “You’re never alone,” she said of SBSOS. “It’s a really good
atmosphere.” Velasquez made sure to specially thank executive director Robert Graham.
“He’s really funny,” she said, “and he always asks about your day. If you’re not having a good
day, he’ll find a way to cheer you up.”
Graham is a former squash pro who reached #30 in the world rankings and #1 in the U.S.
during his 14-year career. He worked at the Athletic Club as its racquet ContinueD on p.25 

teach this year at DPEA while absorbing and reinvent-
ing its lessons for younger students back at Crane.
Before partnering with DPEA, Crane was already
a few years into the development of its engineering
program, “but we had some blanks that needed to be
resolved,” said Head of School Joel Weiss. During a
DPEA tour with a visiting educator in February, Weiss
and Crane Board President Tom Kenny were impressed
with the facility and its founder, Abo-Shaeer. The light-
bulb went off for Weiss and Kenny — some sort of col-
laboration with DPEA was in order, especially after
hearing that Abo-Shaeer needed more hands to help
out. “It was very serendipitous,” Weiss said. “[DPEA’s]
need was more high-level teachers. Our need was a
degree of expertise. The best partnerships happen when
both sides are invested with the other.” If construction
of Oak Tree Quad stays on track, its engineering and
design center — sometimes refereed to as a maker space Amir Abo-Shaeer
—will be filled with students next fall.  
At the same time, DPEA will be tackling the steady constant of drumming up about
$680,000 each year to keep the lights on in its 18,000 square feet of workspace. The pro-

set out to create music, it’s always been with this drive to touch that kind

Snyder, too, seeks out “unusual spaces,” pushing beyond the boundaries
of civilization to places and risky situations “where I don’t have as much
control. And a certain kind of magical things happen in a way; I can see
things that no human has ever seen before,” he said.
The two invite the intrepid and continually intrigued to hear their shared
explorations of unique music and geologies. Snyder opens the night with a

ab Hunter is a few minutes late com-

who produced an autobiographical
documentary about Hunter and has been
his mate for three decades, wonders out loud
where he’s been and why he doesn’t come into
the front bedroom where the television is to
see this amazing thing. A longtime eques-
trian, Hunter, it turns out, was with his new
filly, Skylark, in Santa Ynez, and he’s already
guessed what’s on TV: “Is it that commercial
for our movie on TCM?” he asks.
“I taped it,” Glaser says. “It’s the first time it
ran.” Hunter joins me on a comfortable bench
at the end of a bed and sits back. He looks
tired and calm, but he has his characteristic
questioning gaze turned on, which seems
both skeptical and naïve. Long ago, Hunter
