Solving Problems 101
W
hether its gridlock on the 101, trafc congestion on Coast Village
Road, burying overhead utility lines or demolishing the Miramar
cottages, Montecito has difculty coming together to take action.
Part of the problem is structural. The Montecito Association (MA) is chaired
by a capable leader, Dick Nordlund. However, MA is a homeowners asso-
ciation with little power beyond making recommendations. We have an
appointed Montecito Planning Commission (MPC), chaired by Sue Burrows,
but MPCs power is limited to making recommendations to the County Board
of Supervisors (BOS). We have a well-crafted Montecito Community Plan with
approved goals, but no powers of enforcement. The ultimate political power for
Montecito lies in the hands of 1st District County Supervisor Salud Carbajal,
but his responsibilities extend well beyond Montecito into most of Santa
Barbara, Carpinteria, and Summerland.
Cell Phone Antennas and Where to Put Them
Just about every resident knows that cell phone coverage in Montecito is mar-
ginal, at best. We need more cell phone antenna capacity, not less, as we migrate
from hard line dial-up to mobile broadband. Currently, AT&T-Cingular has
three cell antennae on a rooftop at 512 Santa Angela Lane. Unfortunately, this
location is directly across the street from El Montecito Early School, where some
70 preschool children, ages 2 to 5, reside daily. Additionally, Verizon Wireless
is seeking BOS approval to add a new nine-panel antennae to the same roof-
top. One determined Montecito woman Martha Kay, a retired schoolteacher
of modest means has had the courage to challenge Verizon, a $126-billion
behemoth. Ms Kay and her sister, Mary Goolsby, have retained attorney Marc
Chytilo to oppose the installation of the Verizon rooftop antennae across from
the pre-school.
What happens if Sprint-Nextel, T-Mobile, Google and a whole host of new
competitors like Crown Castle and American Tower demand future antennae
to serve the Montecito marketplace? Will we plan strategically, or just address
each new application as it is received?
The NextG Invasion
In 2010, NextG Networks, a wireless utility without customers, successfully
won approval from BOS to install eight new cell phone antennae on existing
utility poles in Montecito. The Montecito Planning Commission (MPC) denied
NextGs application on the basis that its pole antennae are a visual eyesore
and are not compatible with the Montecito Community Plan. On appeal, BOS
approved the installation and NextG voluntarily agreed to relocate two pole
antennae sited next to Montecito Union School on San Ysidro Road and School
House Road.
NextG was sold to Crown Castle International. Predictably, NextG is now
asking for County approval to add six more antennae on Montecito pole sites
that already have antennae, and to mount five new, larger and uglier devices
on three poles that dont currently have antennae. NextG has applied for a
new pole, antenna box and associated wires on Santa Rosa Lane where utili-
ties have already been undergrounded. Obviously, it is very difficult to find
a suitable site for cell phone antennas in a semi-rural residential community
of 4,238 households nestled onto 5,120 desirable coastal acres.
Location, Location, Location
There are three locations in Montecito that could possibly offer long-term
advantages. One is the 43-acre Casa Dorinda campus; another is the 111-acre
Westmont College campus. Both Casa Dorinda and Westmont are reluctant
(understandably so) to take any action that creates controversy with nearby
neighbors.
Casa Dorinda president and executive director Ron Schaefer has had dis-
cussions with Verizon regarding locating the antennae in the iconic 95-year-
old bell tower of the historic main building. Casa Dorinda is concerned about
noise and vibration from associated equipment at that location. A more
plausible location would be a bell tower, stone chimney or faux tree away
from the senior living quarters invisible to all but the most astute viewers.
Environmental approval would be needed from the County for remote anten-

Dad took great pride in having the best looking
lawn in our neighborhood. He would mow,
fertilize, weed, and water until our front yard
looked like a putting green. Our yard was the
envy of the neighborhood. He spent evenings
after dinner with his pipe and the garden hose. I
still love the scent of tobacco and grass clippings.
Now Dad watches from the window as his lawn
turns brown. The moss has taken over and his
garden hose lies coiled and unused by the side
of the house. He slowly shuffles, bent over with a
cane, and cannot keep up with the chores of a
3-bedroom home, let alone, keeping up the lawn
care. He needs help with the simplest of daily
tasks: food prep, housework and transportation.
Living alone in that big house is just too much
for him.
If an elderly parent needs daily assistance
maybe theyre not independent any more.

it his own way.
Were finally going to cut a record,
says Orlando, who has been appearing
at the Biltmore on Fridays throughout
the summer.
Were sick and tired of playing
numerous shows and having nothing
to send our fans home with. But in
order to make it happen, were asking
them for help in raising $6,000, which
covers everything including the stu-
dio and equipment rental, engineer
fees, mixing, mastering and printing.
That is not a lot of money for a six-
track professional recording.
We have called in plenty of favors
to make this possible at such a low
rate and havent had to cut any cor-
ners so far. We want this record to be
the best it can possibly be, transition-
ing the passion and energy of our live
performance into the sterile environ-
ment of a professional recording stu-
dio. This is not always easy.
The key will be in the songs. I
have been especially discerning about
what tunes were going to cut. They
will be one hundred percent originals
performed by the band with roughly
the same arrangements as our live
performances.
We want hits on the record, not just
cool background music.
Adam Stehr, a longtime friend and
the bands drummer, will be produc-
ing the project, with donors receiving
a hard copy of the CD, a personalized
YouTube performance, credits on the
album cover and even a live perfor-
mance at their home, depending on
how much is given.
Orlando, who is doing his last per-
formance of the season at the Biltmore
on Friday, says those interested in
becoming a backer should access

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

How to Decide
I
f you believe that during the last
four years:
The stature of the United States
in the global picture has grown and
improved;
That peace in the world is expand-
ing and wars are diminishing;
That the USAs dependence on oil
for energy from hostile nations has
lessened;
That the ability of working people
to secure jobs to enable them to
improve their lifestyle is now better
than four years ago;
That opportunities for new homes
or safe housing has grown;
And that the current governing
bodies and the national administra-
tion is assisting you in your efforts,
then you need to work to keep the
current political leaders and the
administration responsible for these
things in power.
If you believe, however, that dur-
ing the last four years:
The stature of our nation has less-
ened or been damaged and other
nations are overtaking the USA in
leadership;
That wars have not diminished,
but spread at the detriment to peace
in the world;
That our economy is not growing,
but is stuck or is shrinking;
That our dependence on hostile,
foreign nations for oil and energy
have not decreased;
That individual real income
shrunk and the ability to achieve
the Great American Dream is
vanishing, and that the govern-
ment, at all levels, is not solving
the problems facing our people or
protecting or enhancing freedom,
then, you need to work to have
current administrations replaced
and have new administrations in
office at all levels after the election
in November.

Montecito Water
District ratepayers
Beware
A new water project pushed by
Governor Jerry Brown in combina-
tion with powerful corporate agri-
culture interests and real estate spec-
ulators threatens to cost Montecito
citizens dearly. It is called the
Peripheral Tunnels Project and is
the latest reincarnation of a previ-
ous proposal called the Peripheral
Canal, which was on the ballot in
1982 and was defeated by a 2-to-1
margin.
A short history lesson: In Santa
Barbara, in 1991, before the State
Water Project vote, voters were
promised it would cost $270 mil-
lion to hook up to the State Water
Project. The reality is that by the
time we have paid off the bonds, we
here in Santa Barbara will have paid
$1.76 billion to receive State Water.
We were also promised the project
was 97% reliable...the reality is that
our four south coast water agencies
have only received 36% of their total
allocation either because it wasnt
there (common in droughts) or we
didnt need it because of reduced
demand from constantly-increasing
water rates.
The problem for Montecito stems
from the fact that we owe a huge
amount for our share of the Coastal
Branch that was approved by the
voters in 1991 and which hooked
us into the State Water Project. For
example, this year the Montecito
Water Districts total budget was
approximately $12.5 million... and
$4.9 million of that went to pay for
its share of the fixed costs for the
Coastal Branch. And the Montecito
Water District didnt order any State
Water because it didnt need the
water and could save money by
not having to pay for the charges to
transport it.
So all of our water bills are
high now but with the proposed
Peripheral Tunnels Project, they get
much, much worse. The Coastal
Branch was the most recent large
capital construction by the State
water Project and it cost 6 12 times
more than we were originally told
it would. We have a lot of trou-
ble believing the cost figures we
are hearing from the state for this
Proposed Peripheral Tunnels Project.
Our economic experts have analyzed
the range of numbers put out so
far... from $20.6 billion to $68, 98
billion (remember the $270 million
we were promised in Santa Barbara
that ballooned into $1.76 billion). So
common sense tells us this will be
much more. But even at these rela-
tively low figures, we here in Santa
Barbara could be in debt for between
$767 million to $5.12 billion for our
share... and that is in addition to the
$1.76 billion we are already paying
for the Coastal Branch.
Before this boondoggle gets start-
ed, it isnt too late to get out and
save ourselves from this bankrupt-
ing additional debt. We need to call
our water agency and register our
concerns and urge our Board of
Supervisors the Santa Barbara con-
tractor with the State Water Project
to withdraw from the Peripheral
Tunnels Project. The tunnels project
will not make our water more reli-
able, but it could bankrupt us with
debt.
Fool me once, shame on you; fool
me twice, shame on me.

Carrying On The
Carriage Trade
Based on old photos and phone
books, the Carriage Trade closed in
1973. I was Marketing Coordinator
and Sales Manager for the 7-Up
Bottling Company in Carpinteria,
which was owned by Mrs. Truman.
The original offices were by the
Moreton Bay Fig tree and train depot
in Santa Barbara.

(Editors Note: We were unaware of
the exact location of the Carriage Trade,
but it occupied what became Pelicans
Wharf and is now Cava from 1970 to
1973 J.B.)
Not On Our Own
President Obama stated that busi-
ness people in the USA are helped
along their road to success by the
infrastructure of government. Mrs.
Goppelt disagrees (American
Dreaming Letters to the Editor MJ
# 18/37) and insists that she was not
helped by government infrastruc-
ture on her path to financial success
in our country and that she made it
on his own.
Mrs. Goppelt, after WWII in Europe,
you were sheltered in a Displaced
Persons Camp paid for and built by
Americas taxpayers; you came to
the U.S. on a government-financed-
and-run U.S. Army ship; you got
to Duluth, Minnesota on train right
of ways paid for by the U.S. gov-
ernment; you earned a living at 3M
Company, which ships its products
on federal, state and local highway
and road systems; you went to pub-

In response to
Montecito Farmers
Market?
Although I am not a current resi-
dent of Montecito, I did grow up
in that neighborhood. When I read
this particular letter to the editor
last week (Montecitos Farmers
Market? MJ # 18/36), I was shocked
and had to send in a reply for
Anonymous.
First of all, there is no denying
that Montecito is a highly afflu-
ent neighborhood. My question for
Anonymous is whether that there-
fore makes the residents of Montecito
any better than anyone else?
The answer is No.
Is Anonymous worried that the
man and girl selling the fruit and
flowers one day a week are going to
bring down his or her property value
or maybe bring the riff-raff into his
expensive neighborhood? These
types of stands have been set up all
over Santa Barbara as long as I can
remember. They are nothing new and
certainly nothing to complain about.
Another thing I would like to point
out to Anonymous in case he or
she has forgotten is that we are all
just trying to make a living right now
in whatever way we can. Im sure
this is the case with this man and
girl. Does he think she enjoys hav-
ing to work at the flower stand every
Saturday morning? She would prob-
ably rather be enjoying her weekend
with friends or family. Have a little
empathy. Anonymous is clearly
blessed to live in a neighborhood as
beautiful as Montecito. They proba-
bly are not, and they are only in that
neighborhood for a few hours a
week trying to earn a living.
Lastly, I want to give Anonymous
the benefit of the doubt by saying
maybe he or she just had a bad day
and simply misdirected that anger
at these harmless individuals. I hope
that Anonymous will re-read his
letter to the editor and realize how
elitist and selfish he sounded. I
suggest that Anonymous wakes
up this Saturday morning and
heads over to those same stands
he recently complained about. Why
not buy a bouquet or two of flow-
ers from that hard-working girl?
Maybe he can pick up some fruit
too while hes there. Itll do your
karma some good, Anonymous.

is in order, it should be directed towards
Lynn, who operates the flower stand in
front of the Bottle Shop at Middle and
Coast Village Roads. She pays rent and
already loses a great deal of business every
Friday to Farmers Market vendors who
operate from 8 to 11:15 am. If the fruit
or flower vendor at Sycamore Canyon
and Hot Springs were selling product
grown on the same property, wed have no
objection; simply choosing a free corner
whereupon to sell ones wares, negatively
affects others selling similar product, but
who have all the costs associated with run-
ning a business. What with the plethora
of regulations many have to contend with,
thats where and with whom empathy
should lie. J.B.) MJ

Verizon Appeal Update
Village Beat
by Kelly Mahan


A
t its board meeting on
September 18, the Montecito
Water District Board discussed
the possibility of housing a Verizon
Wireless antenna facility at the MWD
property on San Ysidro Road. The
board agreed to discuss the alternate
project location after a neighborhood
appeal delayed Verizon in building an
approved facility at 512 Santa Angela
Lane.
While open to discussing the pos-
sibility, some board members voiced
serious concern about the project,
which would require leasing Verizon
Wireless an 800-sq-ft piece of land,
where a 50-ft antenna pole would be
constructed. Verizon has put all of
us in a very awkward position, said
Dick Shaikewitz, as he went through
several issues with the project, mainly
indemnification issues with the lease.
Shaikewitz told the board, as well
as the audience of about a dozen
neighbors, that initial discussion with
Verizon Wireless was less than prom-
ising.
According to Shaikewitz, a lease
with the cell phone company would
be five years long, with four 5-year
options. Verizon Wireless will not be
held liable in case of negative health
effects from the radio frequency emis-
sions, even though the staff report
states the RF emissions are well within
acceptable ranges. If it is truly as safe
as they say, they would put guarantees
in place, but they arent, Shaikewitz
said. Verizon would also be able to
sublease their antennas to another
wireless company, which they fully
plan to do, said David Mebane, a con-
sultant representing Verizon Wireless.
Board member Darlene Bierig also
pointed out several unanswered ques-
tions about the project, including
insurance issues, size of the facility,
communication interference, indem-
nification issues, lease terms, and
more. We owe a fiduciary duty to our
customers, our employees, and our
neighbors, added chair Sam Frye. An
employee of the water district current-
ly lives on the property, and has three
small children, Bierig pointed out.
According to MWD general manag-
er Tom Mosby, the cell phone compa-
ny has already ruled out other MWD

Even if youre not an opera fan,
youve surely heard of the most famous
theater of all the Teatro alla Scala. I
found the exterior to be not impressive
at all. Unfortunately, the interior was
closed the day we were there. However,
the postcard I bought looked mag-
nificent with its 144 boxes. The opera
house opened in 1778 with two men
singing soprano parts since women
werent allowed. No divas then.
If youre a traveler, youve probably
heard about the ABCs, which is the
acronym for Another Bloody Church
or Castle. But the church of Santa
Maria delle Grazie is where Leonardo
da Vinci painted The Last Supper from
1495 to 1497. The miracle is that the
church was bombed in World War II
and Leonardos painting was missed
being struck by one meter.
No cars are allowed downtown
Milan on Sundays because of smog. I
guess you choke the rest of the week.
Next time I complain about the price
of gas, remember it is $8 per gallon
in Italy. We all know the country
is a most celebrated tourist destina-
tion with the worlds greatest hoard
of art. In 1861, when Italy was like
two different countries with the north
advanced and the south economically
depressed, Garabaldi was known to
say, Pasta would unite Italy. Perhaps
today we could add the world.

There was an excursion to the

The Carpinteria resident has just
signed a major book deal with New
York publishing giant Simon &
Schusters Atria Books imprint for an
adventure series.
The first tome, The Explorers Guild,
Volume One: Passage to Shambhala, is
scheduled for release in 2014 and is
aimed at a broad group of readers rang-
ing from young adult to more mature
mystery and adventure enthusiasts,
according to the publicity blurb.
The story is set against the back-
drop of World War I, with Western
Civilization spiraling into chaos, with
members of the mysterious guild
attempting to discover Shambhala, a
golden city of Buddhist myth.
It also ties in nicely as an Indiana

properties in Montecito, including
the Bella Vista reservoir. Negotiations
with other properties are also in the
works, including at Westmont and
Casa Dorinda. A preliminary location
identified on Casas grounds received
negative reaction from the propertys
residents, but other locations there are
being considered, we are told.
Suzy Dobreski, head of El Montecito
Early School, which is directly across
the Santa Angela site, told the board
that they could be quite the heroes of
the community if they agree to allow
Verizon Wireless to locate the facility
on MWD grounds. A huge part of
my job is assuring parents that we are
running a school that is safe, she said,
adding, A lot of families would with-
draw their children from the school if
the facility was constructed.
The appeal of the project, which
was approved by Montecito Planning
Commission in May, is based on the
Montecito Community Plan verbiage
that a project must not be detrimental
to the comfort, convenience, or gen-
eral welfare of the neighborhood. The
attorney handling the appeal, Marc
Chytilo, told the board that AT&T will
also be looking for a site in Montecito;
both cell phone carriers are required
to abandon their current antenna site
at QAD in Summerland at the end of
December. Anything that can offset
your expenses by increasing revenue
would be positive, Chytilo said. The
preliminary Verizon Wireless lease
would earn MWD $2,000 per month,
and it is likely AT&T would ask to use
the property as well, bringing in even
more revenue. We are hoping this
could be a win-win, Chytilo said.
The board voted unanimously to
send the project to the operations
committee, which will gather informa-
tion and report back to the full board
at a later date.
Waxing Poetic
Opens in Summerland
Located at 2350 Lillie Avenue in
Summerland, in the space occupied
originally by Summerlands first post
office, Waxing Poetic co-founder Patti
Pagliei has opened the jewelry shops
second location. The public is invited
to the stores Grand Opening cele-
bration this weekend, Saturday and
Sunday, September 22 and 23.
Established in 2002 by sisters Patti
and Lizanne Pagliei, Waxing Poetic
and their team of artists and cre-
ators opened their flagship store in
Los Olivos in 2010. We relished the
opportunity to share our lovingly-
crafted creations of mixed metal jew-
elry, accessories and treasures, and to
make a connection with our clientele,
Patti explains. The walls and windows
of their boutique offer an additional
canvas to showcase Waxing Poetics
iconic style, and the same can be said
for the new Summerland store.
The 500-sq-ft Summerland boutique
has been renovated and reconstructed
with the help of interior craftsman
and longtime friend of Waxing Poetic,
Erich Riedl. Riedl sourced distinctive
materials and artifacts from around
the world to make the Summerland
boutique an extension of the Waxing
Poetic aesthetic, according to Patti.

Vandalism on Las Tunas road
Monday, 17 September, 9:29 am Deputy Vanwinkle was dispatched to Las
Tunas Road regarding vandalism. The reporting party was a contractor work-
ing on the property to get it ready to be sold. Upon arrival at the site, the con-
tractor found that someone had entered the property; spray paint covered the
walls of the homes dining room. Upstairs in a bathroom, more paint had been
poured on the floor and walls, and a pair of shoes had been dipped in paint
and used to make shoe impressions on the walls, floor, and mirrors. A report
was taken.
Checks Stolen from Vehicle
Monday, 17 September, 10:30 am Deputy Vanwinkle was dispatched to
Camino Viejo regarding a theft. The woman reporting the theft told the deputy
that her mother had received three phone calls from an unidentified man who
told her he had found two checks belonging to her on the floor of a nightclub in
Oxnard. The man offered to return the checks to her, after being given a reward
for finding them. The elderly woman hung up on him.
The woman realized the checks the man was referring to were made out
to her mother; her mother had left the checks in the center console of her
vehicle, in a black bag. The bag also contained various gift cards and a
library card. It is unclear when the bag was stolen from the womans vehicle.
A report was taken. MJ

hether he was writing one
of his more serious and
agonizing moral choice
referendums or what he referred to as
an entertainment, Graham Greene
took care to begin with a fawed,
self-conscious loner. In such notable
entertainments as The Confdential
Agent (1939), The Third Man (1940), and
Our Man in Havana (1958), he not only
entertained, he took us on a bumpier
and more memorable ride, than his
serious work.
All Greenes work leaves us to won-
der a bit more about ourselves than
wed expected, but his entertainments
seem without exception to take us as far
if not farther than his serious work.
His vehicle for these entertainments
was irony, fueled by trenchant humor.
Things are not only not what they seem;
they tend to provoke guffaws of laugh-
ter at inappropriate moments.
A splendid example of Greenes vision
of humanity, serious style is The Quiet
American (1955), which focused on the
American involvement in Viet Nam, as
seen from a recognizable Greene char-
acter, the English journalist, Thomas
Fowler. No less flawed a loner is Charles
Hale, the special assignments newsman
of Greenes often-and-wrongly ignored
Brighton Rock.
Hale had made a name for himself
with his investigative piece on slot
machines and the gang-operated rack-
ets surrounding them. In particular,
Hale had made public the name and
activities of a gang leader who has been
subsequently replaced by Pinkie Brown,
for whom the term sociopath could
well have been coined.
Pinkie did not take well to Hales
accounts of the slot machine politics to
the point where Brighton Rock begins
with Graham Greenes understand-
ing of the need for immediate open-
ing velocity. Hale knew they meant
to murder him before he had been in
Brighton three hours. With his inky
fingers and his bitten nails, his manner
cynical and nervous, anybody could tell
he didnt belong
Brighton is, among other things, a
flourishing seaport and tourist attrac-
tion on the south coast of Great Britain.
Charles Hale is currently there, engaged
in a promotion activity from his paper,
when he realizes members of Pinkies
gang are after him and mean to track
him down. As a part of the activity,
Hales picture is run in the paper. He
is to walk through a route described in
the paper: From ten till eleven Queens
Road and Castle Square, from eleven
till twelve the Aquarium and Palace
Pier
Hale carries cards with him, which
he gives to those who correctly iden-
tify him. The cards are redeemable for
tidy sums of promotional cash. This is
the equivalent of the men and women
wearing chicken suits to attract custom-
ers to Colonel Sanders and his KFC
colleagues. Hale believes he must be the
personality Kolley Kibber (a play on the
English playwright, Colley Cibber) in
order to be considered for more reporter
assignments.
Much of the novel involves Hales
attempts to evade Pinkies lieuten-
ants, his subsequent meeting with Ida
Arnold, who becomes aware of Pinkies
interest in Hale, then with Pinkies sub-
sequent need to remove all traces of
Hales presence in Brighton.
No doubt about Hales importance in
the novel; he is in many ways its driv-
ing force. Nor is there any spoiler in
identifying Pinkie as the dramatic and
philosophical antagonist. There is pain-
fully naive Rose to consider. We may
call her a foil because, as we will soon
see, Pinkie encourages her to become
his girlfriend, and then his wife. The
fact of Pinkie having occasional feel-
ings of tenderness for her adds layers of
nuance and complexity to the dramatic
throughline.
Graham Greene often has a character
set the metaphorical Hand of Justice in
motion to provide a satisfactory ending.
At first blush, Ida Arnold may be seen
as having bumbled into protagonist
role, but Green was too deliberate and
in control of his technique to get by on
happy coincidences.
Brighton Rock was in front of the wave
of purposeful women protagonists step-
ping forth to define justice for us all, and
in the process provides a leg up for the
progression of noir fiction into the same
shelf as literature. MJ

A
fter a recent illness,
Katherine Abercrombies
dear soul left us she passed
peacefully in her sleep on
September 15.
Born on October 10, 1915,
Katherine Opal Tarter, grew
up with two brothers and two
sisters on a farm just outside
Lafayette Indiana. She gradu-
ated Purdue University and
served as an ambulance driver
and field nurse during WWII.
She has lived in San Francisco,
Chicago, Cuernavaca, Palm
Springs and for more than four
decades here in Montecito.
Katherine is survived by her
youngest sister Betty Rankin
and brother Selbe and preceded
in death by Rosella Herbert,
and brother James. She is also
survived by her two children, Pamela and Landon.
Katherine and late husband, Stewart, gave much back to their beloved com-
munity and their tireless philanthropic efforts are legendary. Together they
served on more charity boards and chaired more fundraising events than can
be listed here.
Katherine wanted cremation, and there will not be a formal funeral but a
memorial service will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers please
donate to one of Katherines cherished charities (Girls Inc. for example) or to a
worthy cause of your own choosing.
Katherine Abercrombie led an exemplary life with elegant grace and farm girl
charm. She will be much missed by all she has helped along the way and her
wonderful friends.

nae located in the multi-acre, flood plain area to the rear and south of the Casa
buildings. Schaefer notes: We all crave better cellular coverage and recog-
nize it as an increasingly important part of modern life. Casa Dorinda is, and
remains, open to being a partner in this pursuit. As a community, Montecito
must make sure that the solutions we find today are the right ones for today
and tomorrow.
Westmont College vice president for external relations Cliff Lundberg has
also indicated a willingness to discuss a non-visible, cellular antennae solution,
tucked away on the 111-acre Westmont College campus, provided the college
has the support of nearby neighbors. The third alternative is the rear mainte-
nance area of the Montecito Water District property where the antennae would
also be nearly invisible to nearby residents.
The Water District, Casa Dorinda and Westmont could all benefit from
the rental income of $2,000 per month each from Verizon and AT&T,
compounded at 3% per year for 20 years. That would amount to $644,888
per antenna; $1.3 million for two antennae; and $1.9 million for three
antennae.
Closing the Deal: Who Will Help Martha Kay?
Right now, Verizon and not the local community is driving the site selection
process. To level the playing field, we need to recruit the volunteer services of
neighbors such as Craig McCaw, who sold McCaw Cellular to AT&T for $11.5
billion in 1994, and then went on to found Clearwire, a provider of wireless
broadband Internet service, and/or Bill Esrey, former CEO of Sprint/Nextel,
who changed Sprint from a rural telephone company into a multi-billion-dollar
international telecommunications company. A third possibility is Eric Schmidt,
former CEO and Chairman of Google, and a member of the Board of Apple
from 2006-2009. All three possess the intellect to help craft a sensible plan that
positions Montecito as world-class in wireless, satellite and broadband trans-
mission.
Enlisting the voluntary assistance of these good neighbors would lend
credibility to any Montecito negotiating team and counter Verizons cur-
rent telecommunication claims. We need and deserve an intelligent long-
term telecommunications strategy for this community, now and in the
future. MJ

vintage lamps and chandeliers from

breathtaking 17th century Madonna
altarpiece, Patti says the boutique is a
work of art in and of itself, and is the
perfect chest to hold Waxing Poetics
treasures. Every detail has meaning
for Patti, including a wall featuring a
mural of a tree and its branches, made
from maps of the areas in which she
has lived. There are also familial pho-
tos on the mural, including a picture
of the sisters mother Rita, who they
credit for being their muse.

Montecito singer and songwriter
Haddon Cord will take the stage
on the outdoor patio to entertain

Sunday, Waxing Poetic will celebrate
its artistic origins with some of the

designer Stephanie Kheder will be
waxing about their creative pro-
cess, and Brianna Colburn, Waxing

hers. The Kinds, a local band, will

Waxing Poetic believes in commu-
nity, not just our own, but the overall
global adventure version of commu-
nity, and looks forward to welcoming
Summerland residents and visitors to
our new boutique to create a personal
statement of their own, Patti says.
The brand has an iconic style, and is a
popular line in local stores including
Wendy Foster and Angel; the jewelry
is also sold online.
Waxing Poetic features various
charms with insignia (initials), as
well as collections with iconic images
and words. The jewelry is designed
with mutability in mind: to be mixed
and matched and mixed again, Patti
explained. We help inspire and help
customers create a truly personal
statement, and mark any and all of
their special occasions, she said.
With the exception of the Luminaries
candles (which are made stateside), all
Waxing Poetic pieces are designed in
California, and fabricated in Bali by a
team of artisans. The pieces are hand-
carved into wax and then cast; most
of the jewelry is 50% recycled silver
and brass.
When you come here, you have the
assembly of the perfect gift at your
fingertips, Patti said. Jewelry pieces
can be personalized with birthstones
and other details, and the shop is now
offering custom pieces.

at 2350 Lillie Avenue in Summerland.

Crane Teacher
Honored

Robin Satnick, Crane Country
Days Lower School science teacher,
was recruited this past summer by the
California Foundation for Agriculture
in the Classroom to develop STEM
(Science, Technology, Engineering,
Math) lesson plans that will be used
in elementary schools nationwide.
A national movement to increase
STEM education for students in ele-
mentary through high school has been
a major focus of the Obama admin-
istration and is part of the projected
California state standards that will be
published in 2013. These new stan-
dards are called STEM and the Next
Generation Science Standards.
In todays global economy, there
is no question that Americans need
a deep understanding of STEM sub-
jects, no matter what career path they
choose. The STEM movement is testi-
mony to the reality that we can no lon-
ger study these scientific disciplines
as separate entities, as all sciences
have become interconnected, interde-
pendent and overlapping, explains
Satnick, who has been teaching K-5th
grade science at Crane for eight years.
Satnick say she was the only science
teacher working in her small group of
educators to create hands-on, inquiry-
based lesson plans that are designed
to have real world applications to
motivate and inspire students to excel
in STEM subjects and to hopefully
pursue a career in the sciences.
I am fortunate to be able to teach at
Crane, where hands-on, experiential
learning is a hallmark of the school,
says Satnick. The new, statewide
STEM curriculum mirrors what we
are already doing here at Crane.

tier in 2000, into the second in 2003
and into the top tier in 2005. In 1985,
Westmont tied for seventh in Regional
Liberal Arts Colleges, the first time the
college was ranked.
Westmont improved slightly in the
2013 rankings in the percentage of
classes with fewer than 20 students (60
percent), and improved SAT scores.
The college remained unchanged in
its graduation rate (77 percent) and
percentage of faculty who are full time
(83 percent).
Its an honor to be recognized as
one of the top residential, Christian,
liberal arts colleges in the nation, says
Silvio Vazquez, dean of admission.
In August, Forbes recognized
Westmont as one of the top two
Christian colleges in the country in its
2012 Americas Top Colleges list, which
included 650 institutions. Westmont
ranked 103, second only to Wheaton
College (99) in Illinois for Christian
colleges. The Princeton Review lists
Westmont as one the Best Western
Colleges, saying very personable
faculty members take a genuine inter-
est not only in the academic well-being
of their students, but also their per-
sonal, relational, and spiritual lives.
Viewing of the Stars
Features ring Nebula
The Ring Nebula, M57, will be the
star attraction at a free public view-
ing with Westmonts powerful Keck
Telescope Friday, September 21. The
monthly viewing, held in conjunction
with the Santa Barbara Astronomical
Unit, begins after 7:45 pm and lasts
several hours. The best viewing gen-
erally occurs later in the evening. In
case of inclement or overcast weath-
er, please call the Telescope Viewing
Hotline at (805) 565-6272 and check
the Westmont website to see if the
viewing has been canceled.
The colorful Ring Nebula in Lyra,
the harp, is the atmospheric remnants
of a white dwarf star. Although we
wont be able to see the white dwarf
since it is so faint, we will be able to
see the wonderful blues and greens of
its atmosphere being sloughed off into
space, says Thomas Whittemore,
Westmont physics instructor.
Whittemore also hopes to focus on
the Great Globular Cluster, M13, in
Hercules, the strongman. This ball
of twinklers, estimated to contain
upwards of a million ancient stars,
is a wonderful late-summer treat,
he says. If the seeing is particularly
good this evening, we may be able to
get a glimpse of a distant galaxy, NGC
6207, which lies in the same field as
M13. This galaxys light will have
traveled thirty million years to reach
their eyes.
The viewing may also feature open
cluster M29. This little teapot of
stars may remind viewers of the
Pleiades, the Seven Sisters, but it lies
much further away from us com-
pared to the Pleiades, Whittemore
says. Estimates range from 6,000 to
7,200 light-years due to uncertain-
ties from the nebulosity obscuring
the cluster. At any rate, the clusters
light has been traveling to us from
a time before the pyramids were
built.
The Keck Telescope is housed in
the observatory between Russell Carr
Field and the track and field/soccer
complex. Free parking is available
near the baseball field.
Professor Examines
Psychology of Culture
Carmel Gabriel Saad, who joins
Westmont this fall as an assistant pro-
fessor of psychology, is an Egyptian-
American whose research focuses on
bicultural identities and is interested
in studying dual non-cultural identi-
ties and creativity.
Saads parents are both Egyptians
who immigrated to the United States
about 30 years ago. I was raised
M
any of you have asked if I get
feedback about my column.
In the seventeen years Ive
penned n.o.t.e.s. from downtown
Ive received thousands of comments
ranging from, Youre almost as funny
as Ward Connerly, to, Oh, I read your
column every week in the News-Press.
Many of the remarks I get include
the words brilliant, talented, and
moron, but the comment I get the
most is, Do you really get paid to
write that stuf?
The answer is yes, I do get paid,
but its considerably less than Brit
expat Richard Mineards gets for his
Montecito Miscellany gossip col-
umn. To increase my chances of getting
Mineards Money, Ive tried writ-
ing with a British accent and inserting
phrases like Bobs your uncle, Arse
about face, and Keep your pecker
up, but so far I havent been able to
wangle one extra penny farthing out of
the Buckley Management Group.
Most of the column comments I
receive come via email but I dont
always get to them right away because
Internet headlines often divert my
attention. I have no problem passing
up standard headlines like Hurricane
Picks Up Strength Over Gulf, or
White House Releases Unemployment
Figures, but who can ignore Cow
Gets Stuck In Tree, or Somali Pirate
Tweets Love For Johnny Depp, or
Jailbreak By Popsicle Stick?
Yes, its true; a New Mexico inmate
escaped his jail cell by breaking a win-
dow bar using popsicle sticks and a
razor blade. In true Andy Dufresne
fashion, it took the inmate five months
to wear away the window bar. He also
used popsicle sticks and plastic to cre-
ate a fake window. However, once the
inmate got outside, he changed his
mind and climbed back into his second
story cell using a bed sheet. The article
didnt say why he changed his mind,
but Im guessing it was either Taco
Tuesday or Bruce Willis movie night.
I also like to read the comments after
these stories. One person wrote, I know
someone whos going to lose his ice
cream privileges, and another wrote
Note to self: next time make a popsicle
vaulting pole to get over the fence.
And then there are always several com-
ments that blame President Obama.
Another article that caught my eye
was, Boy Finds Bonanza In Whale
Vomit. At first I thought somehow a
whale had coughed up Hoss and Little
Joes ranch, but on second thought I
realized that couldnt possibly be true
because their ranch was called The
Ponderosa. It turns out a boy, and well
call this boy Charlie because thats his
name, found a chunk of actual whale
barf, a commodity that rivals panda
pee in value. It seems Charlie stumbled
upon this chunk of solidified whale
sputum and he picked it up as a seaside
curiosity. The article displayed a photo
of this oddity, and it looked a lot like
my moms marble cake, only less dry,
Im sure. Charlie and his parents did
some research and discovered that this
curious lump was an expensive per-
fume ingredient and could be worth as
much as $63,350 (leave it to adults to
think, wait a minute, maybe we can make
money off this stuff). They also found out
that theres an actual name for whale
vomit ambergris which sounds
much more pleasant than whale puke
or Moby chunks.
Ambergris is also called Floating
Gold for obvious reasons, and experts
tell us (imagine how proud your par-
ents would be if you grew up to be a
whale vomit expert) that fresh amber-
gris smells like whale poop, but after a
long period of seasoning and harden-
ing it takes on a slightly more delicate
odor, which is why we humans, in our
infinite wisdom, use it to make our-
selves smell better.
After reading this article Ive started
to collect my cats hairballs because
I have grandkids and, who knows,
after several years of seasoning and
hardening they (the hairballs, not the
grandkids) may be worth a college
education or, dare I dream, a Wetzels
Pretzels franchise.
Most of the comments after the Whale
Vomit article ran along the lines of
Yuk! One person was a bit discour-
aged because, as she put it, Even after
six years of college she doesnt make as
much as whale vomit does. Then, of
course, several people blamed the cost
of whale vomit on President Obama. MJ

in a traditional Egyptian family and
had to reconcile it with my American
identity, she says. Thats where my
research comes from its a natu-
ral extension of my personal experi-
ences.
I examine how individuals rec-
oncile sometimes competing cultures
into a cohesive sense of self, she
says. She also hopes to study indi-
viduals with dual, non-cultural iden-
tities, such as people integrating their
Christian identity in a secular society.
I am interested in how bicultural
individuals, who have been able to
integrate their dual identities into a
cohesive sense of self, are more cre-
ative in multicultural contexts, she
says.
Saad graduated from UC Santa
Barbara and earned a Master of Arts
degree and a doctorate from UC
Davis. She has taught at Napa Valley
College, UC Davis and the University
of the Pacific.
I really like the balance that
Westmont has in devoting time to
the students and to the creation of
knowledge, and the integration of the
Christian faith into the curriculum,
she says. Sharing my Christian faith
with students and integrating it into
the teaching, thats something unique.
Coming from public institutions, I
do not have a lot of experience with
that, but am certainly eager to learn.
It makes the undergraduate experi-
ence more meaningful when you can
develop the whole person: the intel-
lectual side and their faith and char-
acter.
The students are very engaged,
welcoming and eager to learn, which
is one of the reasons I chose to come
to Westmont. I can have a more inti-
mate relationship with the students
and important conversations about
the discipline.
Saad, who was born in the U.S., has
traveled to Egypt a handful of times
throughout her life, visiting relatives
and experiencing the Egyptian way
of life. Its a life-changing experi-
ence, she says. Its something you
cant learn about without actually
being there and seeing it with your
own eyes. Im impressed that many
Westmont students study abroad to
experience other cultures because it
makes for a very meaningful educa-
tional experience, she says. MJ

20 27 September 2012 MONTECITO JOURNAL 28 The Voice of the Village
T
he Narragansett Planters of 17
th

and 18
th
century Rhode Island
more closely resembled their
Virginia cousins than they did the hard
scrabble, independent New England
farmers for which the area is known.
Well educated, erudite even, they
owned vast acreages on which they
raised cattle and sheep and developed
the frst American breed of horses, the
elegant Narragansett Pacers, which
are now extinct. For a time they raised
tobacco, but their dairy enterprises,
especially the making of cheese,
brought them the greatest proft. The
few families of this elite group yielded
great economic and political power in
the area.
The Quaker Hazards were the larg-
est and most powerful of this planter
aristocracy. In 1804, however, with
the Industrial Revolution upon them,
Rowland Hazard I (1763-1835) estab-
lished a woolen mill in Peace Dale, the
town he named for his South Carolina
wife, Mary Peace. The business contin-
ued to expand and other manufactur-
ing interests were acquired under his
son, Rowland Gibson Hazard I (1801-
1888) and his grandson Rowland
Hazard II (1829-1898).
Winters
in Santa Barbara
Rowland Hazard II and his family
had visited Santa Barbara in the early
1880s and returned in January 1885 so
his wife, Anna, could recuperate from
a years illness. Santa Barbara at the
time had been touted for its salubri-
ous climate and as a health resort.
The Hazards found Montecitos Hot
Springs to be superior to others in the
neighboring area.
Not doing anything by halves,
Rowland immediately purchased a
parcel of land known as Mission Hill
for its proximity to the old mission.
The former owners home had burned
to the ground and all that remained
were a little stable and a few orange
trees. They fitted the stable up as a sit-
ting room and laid plans for the build-
ing of a home, which was completed
in December.
From then on, the Hazards and
extended family and friends spent the
winter months in Santa Barbara and
kept adding land to their estate. In
1890, Rowland indulged in his favor-
ite pastime; he began to plan, design
and contract masons to build walls.
He wrote in his journal, Am trying
to get a dial made. Bought land, two
acres, across the [Mission Creek] with
a spring on it. Im planning a new
room and have finished the work-
bench in the little shop. Ive laid out
the wall where Eucalyptus have been
cut down along the brow of the hill.
Hazard had designed and built
seven stone bridges in Peace Dale,
and while in Santa Barbara he con-
sulted with mason Joe Dover and
surveyor Alfred Poett on plans
for a stone bridge over Pedregosa
(Mission) Creek. The masons were
paid $1.50 a day and the total cost
for the project was $350. By late April
1892, his walls were finished except
for the Scotch pickets on top. Being
a man of letters as well as an indus-
trialist, Rowland celebrated by writ-
ing for Anna an anniversary sonnet
whose first stanza read:
On Mission Hill, built long ago
Old Mission walls their shadows
throw;
and though with newly quarried
stone,
To wider sweep new walls have
grown.
Behind the old, the violets grow. ..
Besides entertaining their extended
family at Mission Hill, the Hazards
enjoyed the festivities of the com-
munity. In 1892, a Hazard daughter
and Mrs. Ines Dibblee (a member of
the De la Guerra family) worked to
create the first Dance of the Flowers
for the Floral Festival and the Hazard
girls rode in the parade and danced as
daffodils.
Caroline Hazard
Caroline Hazard (1856-1945),
Rowlands daughter, loved taking
horse and buggy jaunts to paint the
nearby missions. Her watercolors have
come down as important historical
documents that show the missions as
they were in the 1890s. For years, the
Santa Barbara Public Library exhib-
ited her work during Easter time.
Caroline received a top-notch pri-
vate education. After a season abroad,
she returned to Peace Dale to conduct
welfare programs for the children of
the employees of the familys Peace
Dale Manufacturing Company. She
wrote poetry and worthy works of
history and biography. In 1899, she

became president of Wellesley College
and for the next eleven years helped
save the institution from financial
ruin.
The familys efforts on behalf of
African Americans was rooted in
their Quaker heritage. In 1841, while
on a business trip to New Orleans,
Rowland Gibson Hazard (Carolines
grandfather) heard that an African-
American man from Newport, Rhode
Island was being held as a slave in
Louisiana. While investigating this
claim, he found than many other free
men had been enslaved. Hazard could
not let this go, and, despite threats to
his life, spent months negotiating the
court systems securing the freedom of
nearly one hundred people being held
as slaves.
In the late 1890s, her father had
assisted Joseph Winthrop Holley, the
son of former slaves, to obtain a high-
er education. Encouraged by W.E.B.
Du Bois, Joseph went on to found the
Georgia Normal School in Albany,
Georgia, an institution that today is
known as Albany State University.
Caroline was among several Hazards
who contributed to the cause of
establishing schools of higher educa-
tion for African Americans. At the
turn of the century various Hazards
served on several college boards and
funded programs and construction at
Tuskegee University, Palmer Memorial
Institute and Lincoln University in
Pennsylvania.
Carolines brother, Rowland Gibson
Hazard II, built a Tudor style home
next to Mission Hill in 1916. He
named it Dial House for its proximity
to his fathers famous sundial. Having
suffered a series of heart attacks, he
retired to Santa Barbara to enjoy his
twin passions of photography and
ornithology. Rowland had an exten-
sive collection of birds eggs, so he
joined the board of the Museum of
Comparative Oology founded by
William Leon Dawson in two small
buildings on his Mission Canyon
property.
After Rowland died of a heart attack
in 1918, Caroline replaced him on the
board and was instrumental in broad-
ening the museums purview. She
donated part of her familys land, and
Rowlands widow, Mary P. Bushnell
Hazard, paid for the construction
of a new museum dedicated to his
memory. Although it was initially
called the Hazard Memorial Museum
of Comparative Oology, the museum
soon came to embrace all facets of
natural history and was renamed the
Santa Barbara Museum of Natural
History. Rowland Hazards Scotch-
picketed stonewall still borders the
Spanish-style entrance.
When Caroline granted the land
to the Museum, she followed an old
English custom of granting a deed by
turf and twig. She dug a spade of earth
and broke a twig from a native lemon
berry bush and gave them along with
the legal deed to the first president of
the museum, James Marwick.
Caroline was also an early sup-
porter of the Loughead (Lockheed)
Airplane Company, and she joined
other women in town to raise funds
to purchase the property in front of
the mission as a city park, thereby pre-
venting housing tracts from obscuring
the view of Santa Barbaras greatest
historical treasure, its mission.
Carolines mother and father had
died in 1895 and 1898 respectively.
She continued to live in Peace Dale
and Santa Barbara until 1943 when she
moved permanently to Santa Barbara
where she died two years later.
In 1953, the Hazard homes, after
serving for a few years as Delta
Gamma and Alpha Delta Pi sorori-
ties, were sold to a different kind of
sisterhood, the Sisterhood of the Holy
Nativity, which created St. Marys
Retreat House.

around $175,000, $125,000 of it before
the doors opened.
It is a real cross section of the
community, says executive director
Geoff Green. It couldnt be more
diverse.
State Senate candidate Hannah-
Beth Jackson conducted the live auc-
tion, with lots including stays in Kauai
and a Montana ranch.
Since 1980, the Fund has awarded
nearly $5 million to more than 900
community organizations and proj-
ects.
Among those at the bash, co-chaired
by Carol Keator and Jane Brody, were
Leslie Ridley-Tree, Brian King, Sara
Miller McCune, and Magellans co-
founders John and Gloria McManus...
Bacara Bash
Social gridlock reigned supreme
when the Scholarship Foundation of
Santa Barbara celebrated its 50th anni-
versary with a Words of Gratitude
gala at the Bacara.
Montecito philanthropist Mike
Towbes, who has been involved with
the organization from its inception,
well remembers the first year when
nine $100 checks were handed out to
grateful recipients faced with escalat-
ing educational costs.
Since then, 32,887 scholarship
awards, totaling more than $75 mil-
lion, have been given to motivated
students.
Its a really fantastic accomplish-
ment which has helped so many,
says Mike, founder of Montecito Bank
& Trust.
To mark the occasion, which was
co-chaired by Joanne Rapp and Patty
MacFarlane past board presidents ,
one recipient of awards from each of
the past five decades spoke, includ-
ing Todd Crow, one of the original
nine scholarship winners from half
a century ago, who is now a profes-
sor of music at Vassar College in
Poughkeepsie, New York.
Montecito event planner extraor-
dinaire, Merryl Brown, cloaked the
hotels massive ballroom in white,
with quotes from award winners pro-
jected on to the walls expressing their
appreciation over the years.
Among the 450 bold faced named
guests were Ron and Andrea Gallo,
Roger and Sarah Chrisman, Bob and
Valerie Montgomery, Peter and Gerd
Jordano, Joe and Susan Cole, Eleanor
Van Cott, Robert and Christine
Emmons, Scott Reed, Janet Garufis,
Karl Hutterer, Lynda Weinman and
Bruce Heavin, Scott Brittingham,
Anne and Carrie Towbes, and Joanne
Holderman.
The boffo bash raised more than
$150,000...

Sunning Scandal
The British Royal Family is certainly
weathering the perfect storm.
First it was Prince Harry cavorting
naked at the Wynn in Las Vegas, which
went global, including the front page
of Rupert Murdochs Sun, the U.K.s
biggest selling daily newspaper.
Now, alas, it is the topless photos of
Prince Williams willowy wife, Kate,
sunbathing by a swimming pool at
the rustic Provencal retreat of Lord
Linley Queen Elizabeths nephew
that has added to the monarchical
maelstrom.
First given an airing in the French
glossy, Closer, the Irish Daily Star and
the Italian magazine Chi, with 50
photos over 26 pages, no less, quick-
ly followed suit, with Buckingham
Palace now bristling about legal
action, including a landmark injuc-
tion banning further publication of
the photos in France.
With voracious snapperazzi armed
with mega lenses that can catch a flea
on a chihauhuas tail over a mile away,
this sort of shot was only to be expected.
It was 20 years ago that Fergie, the
gallivanting Duchess of York, made
lurid headlines when she was also
shot sunbathing topless with her for-
mer financial adviser, John Bryan,
who, to add to the scandal, was also
sucking on her toes.
By coincidence, that was also in the
south of France...

Fessing Up About Food
On Entertainment
by Steven Libowitz
Steven Libowitz has
reported on the arts and
entertainment for more
than 30 years; he has
contributed to Montecito
Journal for over ten
years.
N
ancy Nufer and Rod Lathim,
the Santa Barbara-based
writer and producer of Food
Confessions, a comedy having its world
premiere at the Lobero this weekend,
apparently have taken the saying
food for thought quite literally. The
new work is a series of vignettes about
peoples relationship to food, to their
own pasts, and to each other through
their food choices.
Food Confessions also offers a sub-
stantial bit of sustenance for local
theaters. Nearly all the actors are pro-
fessionals who live in town, and the
work marks the first new piece of
original theater to be staged at the
Lobero in many years. Fittingly, sev-
eral local restaurants are offering tie-
ins with the premiere, serving dinner
before the show, and dessert during
intermission, in a special package.
Nufer and Lathim talked about the
tasty and tantalizing theater piece late
last week.
Q. How did this idea originate?
Nancy Nufer: It started out with a
friend who Id go out to lunch with
all the time, and I noticed she always
ordered macaroni and cheese. I made
a small mental note, and then finally I
asked her, Whats the deal? She liter-
ally went into this well-considered
diatribe about mac n cheese and
how it should be served, and how
restaurants are always messing it up
because they adulterate it with lobster
or peas and onions I went home
and wrote that down and it became
a springboard. I didnt realize how
many likeminded issues had already
been percolating in my head. What I
wanted to address is how food is inte-
gral in our lives, a metaphor for our
personalities and how we communi-
cate with each other Food should
get more credit as a way to get in
touch with our own past and also as a
way we tend to judge others.
Ive certainly seen articles on what you
eat and what it says about yourself, and
other such ideas. Whats the new angle?
NN: Im fascinated by the way
humans interact with their food, the
way they think they eat for a cer-
tain reason. Some people believe they
should eat a certain way and are
almost self-righteous about their food
choices. The more decadent among
us are invested in the sensuality of
eating, and make it almost a spiri-
tual event. Others think its just fuel
and dont want to be bothered, and
dont understand what all the fuss is
about Because were in all these dif-
ferent camps, weve formed opinions
about each other. Thats what began to
interest me not how we interact with
the food, but what we think about
each other because of the food. The
second level was how much of those
choices began in our childhood. Were
mostly unaware of how much food
still evokes those memories and how
we interact.
This sounds awfully serious, but the
show is supposed to be a comedy, right?
NN: It is. Plus comedy is always
serious on a certain level. When we
recognize things that could be us or
someone were close to, it tickles our
funny bone. Thats my basic premise.
The funny shows up on its own. Im
a natural voyeur, and the humor just
shows up by listening and observing.

The format is a series of vignettes?
NN: Yes. Its not a seven-course
meal; its more a casserole. But there
are interconnects, even if they are not
immediately visible at the beginning
of the play. Theyre revealed as we go
along.
Rod, how did you get involved in the
show?
Rod Lathim: The bulk of my artistic
life has been about creating new work.
I love watching that process. After the
first reading, I wanted to keep coming
to see how the play unfolded. At the
third reading, I spontaneously walked
over and said, This show is ready
for an audience, and Id like produce
it. We surprised each other. I had no
plans of doing that.
How has working on the play changed
your own relationship with food?
NN: Oh boy. Thanks a bunch!
(Pause) I want to sound deep and
have a profound answer, but the truth
is it hasnt changed a damn thing. I
still eat whatever I like.
RL: Ive gained weight. Lets leave
it at that.

forms four shows Friday-Sunday. Call the

Sandy Dennis and a then-unknown

Jane Fonda and Jason Robards later

Montecito Diary
by Julia Rodgers
Scholarship Foundations
Dream Team
Julia Rodgers lives in
Montecito with her hus-
band and two young sons.
She is a former journalist
and lawyer who moved
here from Chicago eight
years ago.
M
ontecitos own Joanne Rapp
and Patty MacFarlane co-
chaired an unusual event
last Saturday night: a non-proft gala
with no live auction, no silent auction,
and no paddle raise. In fact, there
wasnt any fundraising at all at the
gala because over $7 million had
already been raised for the Scholarship
Foundation of Santa Barbara to
celebrate its 50
th
anniversary.
For the past 18 months, Rapp and
MacFarlane, along with dozens of
committee members, have worked
tirelessly to raise the funds for the
Scholarship Foundation. Because of
their hard work, the 450 guests attend-
ing the sold-out Words of Gratitude
Gala at the Bacara Resort and Spa
could sit back and relax, knowing they
wouldnt have to raise a paddle to
give money at the end of the evening.
The unique thing about this event
is that it was not designed to raise
money, said Rebecca Anderson,
director of development for the
Scholarship Foundation. The pur-
pose was to have a retrospective of
the history of the organization and to
bring together friends, old and new, to
celebrate the tremendous impact the
Foundation has made in the lives of
local students.
The more than $7 million raised dur-
ing the last year will go towards clos-
ing the persistent gap of approximately
500 qualified and motivated students
who the Scholarship Foundation must
turn away each year, plus more finan-
cial aid and outreach counseling. Since
1962, the Scholarship Foundation has
helped more than 32,000 students
with awards totaling $75 million; last
year it gave away more than $7 mil-
lion in scholarships to local students.
It also provides financial aid advising
services to 25,000 students and par-
ents each year.
Rapp and MacFarlane, both
past presidents of the Scholarship
they are also the most kind, gracious,
and thoughtful people, said Colette
Hadley, executive director of the
Scholarship Foundation. Overall, I
think it is their warmth, sincerity, com-
passion, and humility that sets them
apart. They are true gems.
Quiet Continuous
Cultivation

Friends who were involved with the
Scholarship Foundation introduced
each woman to the organization. For
Rapp, who moved to Santa Barbara
in 1946 with her parents who were
educators, her friend Patty Whalen
took her out to lunch with anoth-
er board member and invited her to
serve on the board. Within a couple
of years, Rapp became board presi-
dent. Rapp is credited for developing
the Scholarship Foundations mantra:
quiet continuous cultivation, which
was also a guiding principle for the
galas vision of not being a fundraiser.
Quiet continuous cultivation is a
touchstone which we can refer to,
said Rapp, who developed the man-
tra in the 1990s. It has defined our
process and method for cultivating
friends and donors for a long time.
Rapp also served as president of the
Santa Barbara Foundation, and was
one of the people who helped guide
the hugely successful collaboration
between the Scholarship Foundation
and the Santa Barbara Foundation. In
addition to her volunteer work, Rapp,
70, is married to Brian Rapp, a retired
lawyer, and has three children and
five grandchildren.
MacFarlanes deep connection to the
Scholarship Foundation came when
she attended the 40
th
anniversary cel-
ebration, a similar event to this past
weekends gala in that there was no
fundraising done during the event.
It was an amazing event. The speak-
ers were so powerful that I got teary
eyed, MacFarlane said. At the end of
the evening, I looked everywhere for a
card on the table to make a donation,
but there wasnt one. So I called first
thing Monday morning and offered to
endow a scholarship.
MacFarlane, 47, a former Wall Street
investment banker, is married to John
MacFarlane, CEO and one of the
founders of Sonos, a manufacturer of
wireless HiFi systems for the home
based in Santa Barbara. They have
two sons who attend Crane Country
Day School, of which Patty is a board
member. She is also the past president
of the board of the Natural History
Museum.
Other key people involved with
the Scholarship Foundations 50

anniversary fundraising effort
included Leon Bartholomew,
Maryan Schall, Christie Glanville,

orator Antonio Sanchez on drums,
and Ben Williams on bass, otherwise
known as the Unity Band, which
also recorded an eponymous CD ear-
lier this year. But this group is also
an anomaly for Metheny, as its been
more than two decades since he last
led an ensemble featuring the sax,
a prototypical instrument for most
jazz players. Then again, Metheny has
always been a force unto his own.
The guitarist discussed the new
project and more via email earlier this
week.
Q. Your two previous recordings were
both solo albums. What prompted you to
return to a band setting?
A. I had never really done any solo
performances. For many years, people
had wanted me to do a solo con-
cert and I knew that if I ever did do
that, I would want it to be something
very special and different. With the
Orchestrion project, I guess I could
say mission accomplished on that
front. The acoustic guitar record that
followed Whats It All About seemed
like the flip side of that same impulse.
Doing something in a more tra-
ditional context seemed the right
response right now to the vibe that
those two projects had set up.
Its of course also the first time youve
recorded with a sax in more than thirty
years. And even then it was only the one
double album. Why now for working with
a sax again?
Over the years I have done a lot
of records with players like Michael
Brecker, Joshua Redman, Gary
Thomas, Tony Williams or Kenny
Garrett where there is a bunch of
music, a few guys who can really play
and in a few days you put something
special together. [But] I have really
only done one record that fits that
profile on my own, which was 80/81,
which has probably been an influen-
tial record in its own right, including
[for] some of the records I have gone
on to make with these other people. I
have admired Chris Potter for a long
time and had heard him a few times
over the past few years where he real-
ly inspired me to want to do another
project like that.
Ive read where you say that jazz has no
tolerance for nostalgia, instead demand-
ing change involving creativity. Which
brings up two questions for me: Is change
valuable in its own right, just for the sake
of change? And as someone who has con-
stantly evolved, how have you managed to
truly never repeat yourself, always reach-
ing for new territory? That would seem to
be a very stressful way to work.
One thing that rarely gets discussed
is that music is really hard. Being
a musician at the level that I aspire
to be at is one of the hardest things
you could do. But it is also incredibly
rewarding. For every hour that you
spend working on music, you get hun-
dreds of hours in return of satisfac-
tion. But also, for every door that hour
of practice opens, hundreds of other
doors appear. But the word stressful
implies that something is kind of a
drag. For me this is the most fun way I
could ever imagine going through life.
I feel it is an incredible privilege every
time I get to play.
When you look back at your career, what
stands out the most as a high point when
you were at your most creative and happi-
est, and is there anything you would like
a do-over on?
No do-overs. Right now is the best
time.

Jarocho to you
Viva el Arte de
Santa Brbara!
kicks off its
2012-13 season
of free family
concerts with
Entre Mujeres, an
all-star jarocho
group featuring
seven female
musicians from
Quetzal, Son
de Madera, Los
Utrera, Caf Con Pan and La Santa Cecilia. An extension of the informal network
Fandango sin Frontera, Entre Mujeres plays son jarocho, the music of Veracruz,
on traditional jaranas, harp, violin, and the tarima, a small wooden dance foor
that resonates with the rhythms of the dancers steps. These seven jaraneras from
Mexico, the U.S. and Canada create an international dialogue of song. Led by
Martha Gonzalez of Quetzal and Laura Rebolloso, a founding member of Son
de Madera, Entre Mujeres includes individual musicians from Son de Madera, Los
Utrera, Caf con Pan, Quetzal, and La Santa Cecilia. The two principals gathered
with women from the village around kitchen tables, cooking and caring for children,
writing songs and sharing experiences, to document voices that are often diminished,
left unnoticed or silenced. Gonzalez brought the recordings back to the U.S. and
added a little Angelino favor to the mix with performances by Rocio Marron, La
Marisoul of La Santa Cecilia, and others. Much of lyrics focus on love love for
children and family and womens experiences as mothers, daughters, and partners.
The result is a combination of original and traditional songs that are slated for release
soon on a Smithsonian Folkways recording. All concerts are free and end with an
informal reception with the artists featuring refreshments. The weekends activities
also feature a free jarocho workshop on Sunday afternoon from 3 5 pm at the Luke
Theatre, where musicians of all levels and abilities can practice song, zapateado
jarocho dancing on the tarima, as well as jarana, leon and other jarocho instruments.
Viva el Arte de Santa Brbara! is an innovative partnership between UCSB Arts &
Lectures and the Marjorie Luke Theatre, which permits both presenters to bring to
Santa Barbara international artists of the highest stature that neither could present
on its own. Coming later this season: Troker, Ballet Hispanico, Mariachi Sol Mexico,

Camerata kickoff Santa Barbaras
chamber music ensemble Camerata
Pacifca opens its 23rd season with a
fourish, not only offering another world
premiere of a commissioned piece, but
also hosting a gala event to celebrate
the new work. Chinese composer Huang
Ruos viola concerto In Other Words was
written for Cameratas Richard Yongjae
ONeill, and refects the composers
logical evolution of the Chinese-Western
expression brought to prominence by
Bright Sheng (from whom Camerata
Pacifca has commissioned three works)
and Tan Dun. The 25-minute piece by
Huang Ruo whose premiere of his opera
Dr. Sun Yat-Sen was cancelled by the
Chinese Government (Santa Fe Opera
has announced it will present the America
premiere) is another in his drama theatre
cycle, employing kinetic elements, using
movement to modulate sound and dramatic
elements with the musicians acting to
intensify the expression. The composer
favors unusual instruments and extended
techniques to create novel colors and
textures, and in In Other Words will be
particularly challenging for the soloist who
throughout the work is required to vocalize
as he plays. The dozen musicians one
of the largest casts assembled by CamPac
in memory will also perform Henri
Tomasis Cinq Danses Profanes et Sacres,
Luciano Berios Opus Number Zoo, both
for wind quintet, plus Beethovens Septet
in E-fat Major, Op. 20. The gala features
pre-concert cocktails and appetizers and
sumptuous post-show dinner. WHEN: 1 &

EASING RECOVERY
FROM SURGERY
Recovering from surgery can be a long and arduous
journey. Painful incisions and infammation are
frequently present even after the most successful surgeries.
Using a feather light touch the body is speeded along
the road to recovery. Recently, scientists at the Pacif ic
Advanced Technology Laboratory were able to provide
proof positive that I emit and transfer energy. Using
sophisticated infrared research equipment scientists
were able to identify that the energy from my hands
was successfully transferred to my subjects, If you go to
my website you can view this... just click medicine and
science.

Tis healing energy may reduce infammation, heal


hematomas and reduce scar tissue. Please allow me to
assist you along the road to recovery

20 27 September 2012 MONTECITO JOURNAL 42 The Voice of the Village
the event was held at Luckys, with
the Ferraris lined up in front for view-
ing. Serving Les Pionniers Sauvignon
Blanc from sponsor Andre Boada
(Capture Winery) and Luckys hors
doeuvres, it was most definitely a
man-heavy event, with the cars being
the only females referenced!
Charles explained, Ferrari North
America sent the featured Ferraris
shown at Pebble Beach down to Santa
Barbara for a few days before their
return to corporate headquarters in
New Jersey. Ferrari was represented
by its nearby dealership, The Auto
Gallery, Calabasas, and Ron Giger,
general manager. On display at
Luckys were two FF four-passen-
ger, four-wheel drive models, two
California hardtop convertible mod-
els, and one 458 Spider model, called
the most sought after car in the world
due to limited production. Over the
weekend, the Ferraris were on display
at the Santa Barbara Polo Club as the
official auto of the Bombardier Pacific
Coast Open match. One of the polo
team owners actually ended up pur-
chasing one of the California models.
Taste of the Town
The Arthritis Foundations (AF) 31
st

annual Taste of the Town took place
on Sunday, September 9. Twenty-eight
restaurants and over 45 wineries con-
tributed, showcasing their fine food
and wine, and local musicians pro-
vided live music.
Event chair John Stempe, who is on
the AF Leadership Council, has been
working the event for 27 years along
with his daughter Jessica, who has been
the winery and restaurant coordinator
for over 10 years. Its a worthwhile
organization and a fun way to have the
community come together for a great
cause, John shared beaming at his
daughter; Johns mother had arthritis.
The event was held at the histor-
ic Riviera Park owned by Michael
Towbes, and all proceeds support
the local programs and services of
the Arthritis Foundation. Honorary
Chairs Tina Takaya and Richard
Yates, owners of Opal Restaurant and
Bar, have been supporting the event
for 17 years. In addition to chairing
the event, they brought their execu-
tive chef Felipe Barajas to make fresh
shrimp hors doeuvres at their booth.
Two items at the event really stood
out to me. The first was the fully
organic and sustainability certified
winery Tolosa with its Pinot Noir,
noted to be reminiscent of a young
fresh Romane-Conti. The second
epicurean find was the Meyer Lemon
Tarte with lavender and honey
infused whipped cream made by San
Ysidro Ranch executive chef Matt
Johnson. One of the winery own-
ers at the event was Fred Brander,
showing his 2009 Pinot Grigio and
2010 Cuve Nicholas. Other favorite
wineries were Summerland, Au Bon
Climat and Qup.
New this year was the addition of
the Urban Wine Trail the collabo-
ration of wineries in Santa Barbara
and beer, namely Island Brewery in
Carpinteria with its Tropical Lager,
Paradise Pale Ale and Blackbird Porter,
and Telegraph Brewing Company
with its White and California Ales.
Chef Gary Menes of Le Comptoir
in Los Angeles served as Lead Chef,
and designed a five-course meal for
gourmet foodies in the Connoisseurs
Circle Pavilion. Music was a jam ses-
sion by Carey Hitsman, David Tovan
and Jack Lee.
Seen at the event were Michael and
Anne Towbes, Arthur Nipper von
Wiesenberger, Chad and Jill Chase,
Cyndi Hitsman, Randy Cobb, AF
executive director Asher Garfinkel,
AF assistant Sheryl Moon, Patricia
Juin, David Collert, Rob Croteau,
and John Dickson (The Restaurant
Guy), along with the AFs event com-
mittee members, namely Jennifer
Jaqua and David Edelman.
The goal this year was to raise
$120,000 and at press time, the AF
announced the event reached that
goal. Sponsors included BMW Santa
Barbara, MarBorg Industries, Hub
International Insurance Services, and
Montecito Bank & Trust.
