Diane Mooshoolzadeh, The Indy’s new copy editor, has been tickling the ivory keys since she was 4 years old. Now, on top of mastering sonatas, she’s keeping our writing clean and clear, using what she learned in UCSB’s writing minor to remedy everything from glaring spelling errors to obscure grammatical blunders. “I like fixing people’s mistakes,” she said. Originally from Thousand Oaks and a big fan of the outdoors, Mooshoolzadeh has most recently been slogging through our massive Best Of issue with her trusty Chicago Manual of Style and Merriam-Webster’s dictionary. “I think it’s fun,” she said. “I’m weird like that.”

DEFEATED: Plastic-bag defender Stephen Joseph left no stone unturned trying to persuade councilmembers that a bag ban was necessary, but he proved no match for the coalition of environmental activists.

Penny Estes, the “green” construction contractor who allegedly scammed 10 Santa Barbara homeowners who lost their houses in wildfires out of millions of dollars, pleaded not guilty Wednesday to all 25 felony counts against her. Estes’s charges — which carry enhancements that she targeted senior citizens and fire victims — include grand theft, obtaining services by false pretenses, diversion of construction funds, and tax violations. A number of fire victims had contracted with Estes and her construction company, Green Building America, to rebuild their homes with eco-friendly materials, but officials say Estes spent much of their money on personal items and travel expenses. She is set to return to court on 10/14 for a preliminary hearing. PAU L WELLM AN

Council Enacts Plastic-Bag Ban over Lobbyist Objections

T

BY N I C K W E L S H he Santa Barbara City Council voted 6-to-0 to pass an ordinance banning plastic grocery bags from distribution within city limits and imposing a 10¢ fee on shoppers for each paper bag they are given instead. The idea behind the new ordinance — which goes into effect in two stages — is to promote the use of reusable shopping bags. Six months from now, large grocery stores and pharmacies — 10,000 square feet or bigger — will be required to implement the new regulations. There are about 20 of those in town. Six months afterward, the ordinance will extend to about 64 smaller outlets that sell food. The measure was passed over the strenuous and at times vituperative objections of the Save the Plastic Bag Coalition, whose spokesperson Stephen Joseph contended the ordinance was utterly unnecessary because there is no evidence that plastic-bag litter posed a threat to Santa Barbara’s aesthetic sensibilities, let alone to its waterfront. He dismissed claims that plastic bags kill marine life, arguing that recent studies have documented the deaths of only seven fish and one bird at the hands of seaborne plastic bags. He lambasted as “terrible” the environmental report documenting the impact of the ban, arguing that it grossly understated the spike in paper-bag consumption the ordinance would engender. “It’s the same old spin and misinformation,” he said. Joseph denounced the environmental review process because he was not sent a draft of the final report until a day after the Santa Barbara Planning Commission had approved it. (He had recently moved from San Francisco to Los Angeles). But Joseph ultimately proved no match for the coalition of environmental organizations — the Community Environmental Council, Santa Barbara Channelkeeper, and Save the Mermaids — who’ve been lobbying the council off and on since 2007 in favor of such a ban. Their advo10

cates argued that because plastic bags don’t dissolve in the ocean, but rather break down into tiny specks of micro-trash, they pose a threat to fish, sea birds, and sea mammals. One Surfrider Foundation representative said he had encountered a dead cormorant in just the past week with a plastic bag wrapped around its neck. Likewise, the environmental activists argued that during various beach cleanup days they sponsor, plastic bags rank in the top five or six kinds of trash left or tossed on the beach. Kathie King with the Community Environmental Council noted that Santa Barbara city residents use 47 million plastic bags a year. She acknowledged that many of those bags are reused multiple times — to line trash cans and pick up dog poop — but noted, “We don’t have 47 million dogs.” Likewise, she took exception to Joseph’s argument that most people use reusable bags a handful of times before throwing them out. Leaving the podium, she held her personal reusable bag high in the air, declaring, “This is my bag, which I keep in my purse. I’ve used it twice a week for the past four years.” Nor did it hurt the bag-ban cause any that the California Grocery Association — which represents the state’s biggest chains — has not only endorsed the proposed ban but consistently lobbied on its behalf. Its representative, Sarah Sheehy, said that supermarkets have experienced a 94 percent drop in plastic-bag use in communities that have enacted bans. Councilmember Bendy White expressed great frustration that the State Legislature never tackled the issue and left it up to cities and counties throughout California to waste “a lot of time, energy, and creativity” devising piecemeal solutions. When the Santa Barbara ban was first proposed in 2007, only San Francisco had one. Now, 60 more cities throughout the state have adopted one. City Hall tried an educational outreach campaign to get consumers to change their habits but found only limited

success. Joseph has fought bans up and down the state in court, successfully arguing that they required environmental analysis to be passed. When the council contemplated the $66,000 price tag of such a report, the effort nearly died. But Councilmember Grant House devised a cost-sharing scheme with seven other coastal cities in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, and the price tag for Santa Barbara shrank dramatically. More strategically, the report could be used by any government in the two counties as the basis to enact bans of their own. To date, the City of Santa Barbara is the first to approve the EIR and the ordinance language, but the County of Santa Barbara is currently in the process of drafting a very similar measure, and activists are pushing the City of Goleta to begin the process, as well. The City of Carpinteria passed a much more restrictive measure two years ago but has since suffered legal setbacks in the courts. Even Santa Barbara council conservatives Dale Francisco and Frank Hotchkiss — both of whom expressed keen skepticism about the ordinance and the underlying environmental report — gave their approval. Francisco said the regional approach saved City Hall $58,000, and because of that he voted for it. As for Councilmember House, now in the waning twilight of his council career, he took pains to “appreciate” everyone who partook of the discussion, including Joseph, of whom House said, “Hey, he’s just doing his job.” Councilmember Cathy Murillo was far more pointed, saying Joseph had no one but himself to blame for not knowing when the Planning Commission deliberations took place. “If you didn’t do your job,” she said, “it’s not our fault.” Councilmember Randy Rowse recused himself from the deliberations, declaring that because his wife distributed reusable cotton bags to raise awareness for a nonprofit dedicated to keeping teens clean and sober, he had a conflict of ■ interest.

Former County Fire Department employee Robert Perez (pictured on left) pleaded not guilty 10/1 to charges of grand theft and tax evasion for allegedly stealing $114,000 from his firefighters union between 2006 and 2012. Before retiring earlier this year, Perez had been his union’s insurance administrator for eight years; the alleged theft was discovered in March during an audit. Perez turned himself in in August after an investigation by the Sheriff’s Office and was later released on his own recognizance. Perez’s lawyer, Steve Balash, said his client has been cooperating with authorities and that the case stems from “a lot of misunderstanding on both sides.” Perez faces up to eight years in prison if convicted. His preliminary hearing is set for 10/16. The trial for a Montecito church employee charged with molesting his step-granddaughter ended in a 9-3 hung jury 9/26 after four days of deliberations, leading Judge Frank Ochoa to declare a mistrial. Prosecutor Benjamin Ladinig said a retrial is “a definite possibility.” Carlos Ruano, 67, was arrested after a 2012 incident at his Eastside home. Ruano told detectives that while he was watching over three young children, his step-granddaughter’s brother jumped on her, causing her to suffer stomach pain. Ruano said that he rubbed ointment on her stomach to alleviate the pain and that he may have accidentally touched the girl’s underwear. The girl — 7 years old at the time — told detectives Ruano also touched her inappropriately and exposed himself. San Francisco prosecutors on Wednesday charged 28-year-old Santa Barbara resident Dustin Semenza with attempted murder, alleging he stabbed one of his friends in a hotel room during a drunken argument. Semenza, the 28-year-old victim, and the victim’s brother — all three live in Santa Barbara — had traveled to the

In two different lawsuits filed in January and September of this year, 39 former clinical psychology PhD students are claiming that their alma mater, Pacifica Graduate Institute, knowingly misled them about one of its key accreditations, an alleged omission that the ex-students say robbed them of thousands of dollars in tuition and fees and future income. For more than 10 years, the lawsuits allege, Pacifica misrepresented its clinical psychology program’s accreditation status with the American Psychological Association (APA), which the U.S. Department of Education and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation have endorsed as a top accreditation for professional psychology programs. The former students claim that prior to and during their years at Pacifica, the school told them its program was APA certified or had accreditation pending; the school first applied for the APA stamp of approval in 2008 but was rejected. Eric Woosley, the lead attorney for the former students, said that each student discovered the issue at different times but were unable to transfer units from a non-APA school to an APA school. As a result, the lawsuits state that the students are each about $150,000 in debt — from tuition, student fees, and commuting expenses — and those who are not living in California, where APA accreditation isn’t required to get licensed, are having trouble finding work. Erik Davis, Pacifica’s director of communications, released a statement on the lawsuits: “We are proud of our standard of education and the programs we provide. We have always been forthright about our APA accreditation status, and we are confident that our clinical psychology programs provide our graduates with knowledge and skills sought after by employers across the country.” Davis also added that all of Pacifica’s programs are accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). According to Jeffrey Thomas, the assistant executive officer of the California Board of Psychology, clinical psychology graduates of schools with WASC accreditation can get licensed in California, but other states may require APA accreditation. Woosley said specific dollar amounts have not been set in the cases but that the ex-students are suing the school for the program’s expenses, loss of future earnings, and attorney’s fees.

He remains in jail without bail. A Long Beach gang member who was arrested and served time in Santa Barbara County Jail after a March 2010 high-speed chase along Highway 101 was killed in a gun battle with Long Beach police Wednesday morning. Erick Balint, 32, had been sentenced in Santa Barbara Superior Court to five years and four months in state prison — he pleaded guilty at the time to a number of felony charges, including domestic violence, robbery, vehicle theft, and recklessly evading officers — and had been recently released. Police shot Balint after they responded to a domestic-violence call and he opened fire on officers, officials said.

Leaders from different corners of Santa Barbara’s faith community gathered Friday at the Unitarian Society to sign a pledge saying they would work to reduce the carbon footprint of their individual houses of worship. The event was put on by ECOFaith, a collaboration of area religious groups that formed in 2008 after Rev. Wallace Shepherd (pictured center) of Second Baptist Church spoke with Rep. Lois Capps about align-

ing religious principles with environmental stewardship. Shepherd and the other founding members of the group — Imam Yama Niazi of the Islamic Society, John Reed of Holy Cross Church, and Dr. Ivor John, the organization’s chair — talked on Friday about spreading the “green” message not only to their congregations but also to government officials. “We’re waking the mind up of people as to why the environment is important,” Shepherd said. “The word of God says that we should be good stewards over the environment and take care of everything around us.”

COUNTY The Goleta City Council voted unanimously 10/1 to allow the developers of the Rincon Palms Hotel (proposed for the corner of Hollister Ave. and Storke Rd.) extra time to rework the project after councilmembers and dozens of Goleta residents voiced their concerns — mostly about traffic and obstructed mountain views — at a council meeting on 9/3. The developers came to Tuesday’s meeting with possible changes: decreased building elevation, building height, floor area ratio, and conference-center size (which could reduce the parking). They’re also exploring moving the building farther back from Hollister and reverting back to the original plan for a rooftop deck. The new revisions will be presented to the council at a date to be determined. Vandenberg Air Force Base had a busy week, successfully launching three rockets from its seaside facilities. At 3:33 a.m. on 9/26, it carried out the second of the launches, sending an unarmed Minuteman III intercontinental missile across the Pacific Ocean to a test range in the Marshall Islands. The first launch was another Minuteman test mission on 9/22, and the third was the SpaceX show on 9/29. “It is so exciting to see our mission in action,” said Col.

Although Mayor Helene Schneider has taken her foot off the accelerator in her quest for campaign cash, she’s still managed to raise nearly $95,000 in political donations, roughly 40 times as much as her opponent Wayne Scoles — longtime Mesa activist and City Hall critic, known for his angry council diatribes about gangs, homeless, and the city Police Department. To date, Scoles has raised $800 in donations and loaned his campaign $2,000. Given Scoles’s lack of financial support, the mystery is why Schneider would raise such a blistering sum. Equally curious is how — or why — the mayor has managed to spend nearly $60,000 so far in a race in which her victory is regarded as dead certain. However, the race for the City Council — with two incumbents among the eight credible candidates chasing after three seats — is anything but certain. (Candidate Cruzito Cruz is not raising money, and Matthew Kramer has dropped out, though his name will still appear on the ballot.) The incumbents — moderate Councilmember Bendy White and conservative Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss — have raised $51,000 and $49,000, respectively. But the real fight, at least according to the conventional wisdom, has always been for the third seat. In that regard, candidate and former twoterm councilmember Gregg Hart has raised $75,000, and David Landecker, another former councilmember, has raised $70,000. While Hart and Landecker represent different shades of the gray within Santa Barbara’s Democratic establishment, they represent subtly different viewpoints and constituencies. (Hart, for example, was endorsed by the Democratic Party while Landecker — who is urgently backed by Mayor Schneider — was not.) Among the first-time candidates seeking a seat, Lesley Wiscomb — who has served on the city’s Parks and Recreation Commission — has raised $46,000. Wiscomb is backed by Santa Barbara’s coalition of traditional slow-growthers and political conservatives that’s formed in reaction to the high-density agenda of smartgrowthers seeking to build more affordable housing. Megan Diaz Alley — the most outspoken political progressive in the race — raised $36,000, with $7,500 coming from the Service Employees International Union, which represents City Hall workers. Jason Nelson, the former Marine seeking to add 20 new cops, raised $34,495, the largest donation coming from the Police Officers Association (POA), which gave $5,000. (The POA donated the same amount to Hart and White. The firefighters union — which traditionally has acted in conjunction with the POA — has not yet decided which candidates it will endorse and has made no donations.) Michael Jordan, a member of the city’s Planning Commission and an outspoken middle-of-the-roader, has had a hard time gaining political traction, raising just $12,000. Although election ballots will be mailed out next week, the results will not be tabulated until the first Tuesday — Nick Welsh in November.

Rita Hills and Happy Canyon of Santa Barbara AVAs over the past decade. The move comes more than two years after the first filing of the application, which made the case that the soils and climate of the thin canyon located between the towns of Solvang, Buellton, and Los Olivos make for distinctive wines, particularly for grapes such as syrah and grenache originally from France’s Rhône Valley. Among the 15 vintners included in the new Ballard Canyon appellation are Stolpman, Jonata, Larner, and Rusack. Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Tuesday authored by State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson that will expand the definition of family in the state’s existing Paid Family Leave Program. As the law stands — the new provision will kick in July 1, 2014 — employers are required to award their workers partial pay when taking time off to care for a sick spouse, registered domestic partner, child, or parent. Jackson’s addition, SB 770, will see that family members such as grandparents, grandchildren, siblings, and in-laws are also included. In 2002, California became the first state to institute a paid family leave program, which covers up to six weeks of such leave per year. 12

Rite Aid Corporation will pay more than $12.3 million in penalties after dozens of California district attorney offices — including Santa Barbara’s — charged that 600 of the company’s California stores illegally dumped hazardous materials in landfills over the course of six years. The Santa Barbara DA’s Office joined the lawsuit not because any of the area’s six stores had participated in the illegal dumping but because of risks the toxins could pose to all of the state’s residents and environment. Santa Barbara’s cut of the settlement will include $18,000 in civil penalties and cost recovery for the District Attorney’s Office and $17,000 for the county’s environmental regulators.

Expected to be completed in just under two and a half years, the certified LEED project will add on a 60,000-square-foot, three-story building, and renovate roughly 92,000 square feet of current space. The updated structure will house a grand walkway, new special-collections facility, new arts library, 24-hour information center, naturally lit reading galleries, expanded wireless access, more power outlets, and a faculty collaboration studio. The renovations will also wrap up efforts in recent years to seismically retrofit several buildings on campus.

Fishermen Defeat Feds

PRO BONO POWER: Rusty Brace (right) successfully took on the federal fishing regulators on behalf of Jason Robinson (left) and his brother Shane.

Brothers Prevail over No-Fishing Zone Charges

T

wo Santa Barbara brothers accused of violating federal laws related to a no-fishing zone off San Miguel Island beat the charges in late August when a federal judge determined that the government presented insufficient evidence to prove the crime. The decision highlighted deficiencies in the vessel monitoring system (VMS) used by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to watch fishing boats and enforce the rules surrounding marine protected areas (MPAs), prompting an ongoing review of the system with changes likely on the way. For longtime fishermen Jason and Shane Robinson, the decision saved them from paying more than $17,000 in fines, which is a relatively low amount compared to other penalties, in part because they were only charged with idling in an MPA too long, not for fishing there, which can bring fines of up to $140,000. But the case also revealed what they believe is an unfair culture of guilty until proved innocent when it comes to commercial fishing laws. “They threaten you based on the fact that it costs more to fight these than to accept a settlement,” said Jason. “That’s what they told me, and that’s how they did it. In my mind, this is their ATM machine. … It feels like extortion.” The brothers were only able to fight the charges, which date back to a fishing trip they took on May 17, 2010, because attorney Rusty Brace of the Santa Barbara firm Hollister & Brace took on the case pro bono. Had he been tallying his time on this complicated matter, which he says the feds fought tooth-and-nail despite no hard evidence, the bill would have far exceeded the fines, costing perhaps as much as $80,000 when all was said and done. Brace said that this was the first time he could find where the feds based their arguments solely on the VMS, which sends one signal per hour from every boat working the commercial groundfisheries of the West Coast to NOAA. Usually, said Brace, NOAA presents a witness or other evidence to bolster its charges. In this case, the Robinsons weren’t alerted to the fact that NOAA was going to charge them until 10 months after the alleged crime; at that point, they could not recall what they had been doing, but now believe they were probably crossing the MPA back and forth over the four- to five-hour period in question as they waited for their fishing gear to soak.

“It’s impossible to say what they did,” said Brace, which is basically what the judge determined, as well. Brace appreciates how difficult it must be for the government to watch the entire West Coast and the roughly 1,000 boats working the groundfisheries (the area close to the bottom where many fish swim), and he understands how VMS makes the monitoring somewhat possible, even if he finds the constant tracking somewhat oppressive.“It’s a great way to identify suspect behavior, but it’s not a viable way to prove a case,” said Brace. “You have to have other corroborating evidence.” The government, meanwhile, is standing by its case. “NOAA believes it presented sufficient evidence to find by a preponderance of the evidence that the respondent committed the violations charged, but accepts the Administrative Law Judge’s finding to the contrary,” explained John Thibodeau, a communications specialist in NOAA’s Office of Law Enforcement. “Neither NMFS [National Marine Fisheries Service] nor its enforcement partners have the resources to effectively monitor the various restricted fishing areas off the California coast, so we must rely on the data provided by VMS to determine the activity of fishing vessels at sea.” Due to the judgment, adjustments may be on the way.“NMFS is currently reviewing what changes, if any, will be required in light of the Initial Decision,” Thibodeau explained in an email. One idea, which will be discussed at the next Pacific Fishery Management Council meeting in November in Costa Mesa, is to increase the frequency of the VMS signaling to every 15 minutes rather than once an hour. The increased costs would likely be passed down to fishermen, though, who already pay about $50 a month for the VMS and could see that cost multiplied with the additional signals. “That could go up to $150 or $200 a month,” said Jason, who plans to speak at the upcoming hearing. “That’s pretty significant for us.” Though he’s happy to have prevailed, Jason described the whole situation as “disheartening” and believes he would have been “steamrolled by the government” if it weren’t for the unpaid efforts of Brace, who has known the brothers’ father for years. “My brother and I spend a great deal of time researching the ever-changing regulations and have no intention of violating any regulations made,” said Jason. “There is no one out there who wants a healthy viable resource more then the people ■ who depend on it to feed their family.”

nominations out of more than 500 candidates across the country, Kopeikin was recognized by Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI) Nursing Education for her leadership, professionalism, and inspiring ways. Kopeikin said she was especially excited to receive the honor because her students will get access for a year to Nurse’s Touch software, which includes interactive video clips, tutorials, and case studies. More than 100 preschoolers from El Camino, Ellwood, and Isla Vista elementary schools participated in a free health fair Friday morn-

ing at Isla Vista’s Teen Center. The fair was the first of three upcoming events to check lowincome preschool kids’ vision, hearing, teeth, height, and weight. More than 20 area clinics, nonprofits, and prevention centers contributed resources. Last year, the screenings found that nearly 40 percent of participating pre-K kids had dental decay and another 40 percent were in the overweight or obese range. The fairs expect to serve nearly 750 children total from Isla Vista, Santa Barbara, and Lompoc. The next two events are slated for October 18 at the Franklin Community Center in Santa Barbara and for October 25 at the Lompoc Unified School District’s Adult Education Center. ■

Not Too Cool for School Santa Barbara County elementary school students are attending class at much higher rates than their peers across California, according to a report released this week by state Attorney General Kamala Harris (pictured at right). The recent statewide study found that 13.6 percent of K-6 kids in the county were truant — absent or tardy by more than 30 minutes without an excuse three times in a school year — compared to 29.6 percent of truant kids statewide. Efforts have been made at the district and county levels to help K-12 students stay in class, like increased communication between school staff and parents, after-school meetings, administrator sit-downs, and gatherings of the Student Attendance Review Board (SARB). District Attorney Joyce Dudley restored a truancy program called CLASS last year, which costs less than half of what the previous $500,000 program did and returned 96 percent of the 6,849 K-12 students initially reported as truant back to school during the 2012-2013 year. Deputy District Attorney David Chen, who runs CLASS, said SARBs at the 20 county school districts often resist punitive measures and instead opt to offer resources from area social-services agencies. Of the 226 students who continued to ditch school without a valid excuse, only three cases required court intervention during the program’s pilot year. The county fares better than most of the rest of the state, which Harris declared is facing an “attendance crisis,” calling recent findings “stark” and “alarming.” Noting the link between early truancy and high school dropout rates and the fact that 82 percent of prisoners nationwide are high school dropouts, she called for several hands-on measures, most of which Santa Barbara’s school districts have already — Kelsey Brugger implemented.

Pacific Pride Foundation will hold its 23rd annual fundraising walk this weekend to raise money for services offered to low-income county residents living with or somehow affected by HIV/AIDS. According to a 2012 study by the county’s Public Health Department, there are 553 people living with either HIV or AIDS in Santa Barbara with 29 new cases reported last year. Pacific Pride set a goal to raise $100,000, and Jason Patton, the foundation’s development director, said meeting it is crucial. Patton noted that budget cuts by lawmakers in recent years, starting with former governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, have slashed funding throughout the state for HIV-related programs. “In 2009, we lost a $700,000 contract and laid off more than half the staff,” he said, noting that four people now juggle 50 cases each. The federal sequester has only made things worse, he went on, and the looming real-world effects of the Affordable Healthcare Act remain uncertain for many, especially those financially disadvantaged. Patton said the HIV-related work, like free, anonymous screenings and condoms, education, and medical case management, are the organization’s “meat and potatoes,” but there’s also the needle exchange program, which provides 80,000 clean syringes each year. Pacific Pride also still sends its mobile unit out to bring free screenings and counseling to area college campuses, a demographic widely recognized as “at risk,” and farming communities, where migrant workers often lack easy access to affordable medical services. “We don’t turn anyone away,” he said. A recent $30,000 grant has helped the organization, but as future government support is uncertain, so too is Pacific Pride’s ability to maintain free and affordable help. So far, a little more than a quarter of the $100,000 goal has made it to the coffer. But Patton explained the nonprofit often sees the amount double the day of the event. Patton also stressed that 90 percent of every dollar goes to what he calls “the necessities of life.” The 7-kilometer Heart & Sole walk begins at 10 a.m. on Sunday at — Kyle Rokes Fess Parker’s DoubleTree Resort.

110 New Wells?

Planning Commission Approves Oil Project, but Enviro Group Likely to Appeal

A

BY LY Z H O F F M A N

fter the Santa Barbara County Planning Commission voted 3-2 last week to approve the Santa Maria Energy Oil Drilling and Production Plan — 136 oil wells across 32 acres near Orcutt — people on both sides of the vote began to worry that the project could set a precedent. The vote was in favor of limiting the project’s greenhouse-gas emissions to a 29 percent threshold, meaning that instead of the project’s projected 88,000 metric tons of emissions per year, just under 67,000 will be allowed. While those who voted for the 29 percent mark deemed it too restrictive, others said it doesn’t nearly go far enough and makes this project the first in the county to able to release more than 10,000 metric tons of emissions per year. The Environmental Defense Center (EDC), which has argued that Santa Maria Energy could technically limit its emissions to zero, is likely to file an appeal by the October 7 deadline, said Nathan Alley, an EDC attorney. If appealed, the approval would go to the Board of Supervisors. Alley said the Planning Commission’s thumbs-up to the higher-than-normal limit merits some questions. “They had used the 10,000-metric-tons-per-year threshold for other projects, so at the very least, we were hoping the county would be consistent,” he said. Immediately after the commissioners’ vote, Santa Maria Energy released a statement, saying “We are pleased with the Planning Commission’s approval of our project and want to especially thank all of our supporters. The decision was well-deliberated and we hope that is fully considered before someone decides to appeal.” Without an appeal, said public and government affairs manager Bob Poole, the company could move forward with the permitting process for the 110 new wells — there are already 26 pilot wells on the site — along with two steam generators, a crude-oil pipeline, and a water pipeline that will transfer recycled wastewater from the Laguna County Sanitation District for the steam generators. The oil will be produced through a process called cyclic steam injection, which involves injecting steam into the wells to get the oil to flow. The steam generators will be the producers of the greenhouse gases. The initial vote for the project was 3-2 against a proposed 16 percent emissions threshold, which commissioners Daniel Blough (th District) and Larry Ferini (th District) sup-

ported. The final vote, also 3-2, approved the 29 percent threshold, which st District Commissioner Michael Cooney and rd District Commissioner Joan Hartmann voted against, saying it wasn’t high enough of a restriction on the greenhouse gases. The 29 percent and 16 percent threshold designations came in the wake of the state’s Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, otherwise known as AB . Under the law, California is aiming to get its greenhouse-gas emissions down to 1990 levels by 2020, with a statewide threshold of 16 percent. Santa Barbara County’s threshold is higher, at 29 percent. What Cooney wanted, he said, was for the project’s total emissions to not exceed about 29,000 metric tons per year, a number accounting for the 18,000 metric tons that the existing wells produce now, plus an additional 10,000plus for the new project. The 29,000 metric tons would be more than the 10,000-metricton limit — which has been imposed on projects such as the Goleta Storage Area and Key Site  in Orcutt with the understanding that under that limit, no mitigations are required, Cooney said — but preferable to the 67,000 metric tons approved. “I have a strong belief that new stationary projects like this one should try to eliminate more greenhouse-gas emissions than the Planning Commission approved,” Cooney said, adding his fears about a precedent. “It’s not going to be good enough to just run in place. We have to make up for lost ground.” If the project were to go over the 29 percent threshold, Alley explained, Santa Maria Energy will have to buy credits to mitigate the excess. Buying credits is a process by which other energy companies can sell credits when they clock in under their own thresholds. There aren’t currently any trading programs in the area, Alley said, but that implementing a program in the county would be good for the economy and the environment. Although he voted in favor of the 29 percent threshold, Commissioner Blough said he thought the state standard of 16 percent would have been fairer.“I wouldn’t call it a good compromise,” he said. “I think it’s a bad precedent. I’m not going to do anything to thwart [Santa Maria Energy’s] ability to do business.” Barring an appeal, construction on the project could start next year, Poole said, with the wells drilled over the next few years. ■ ocTobEr 3, 2013

GOOD DEED PUNISHED? When Sonia Wisniewska agreed to let the County of Santa Barbara use some of her land to help the tiger salamander, she never envisioned the mess that would transpire. Today, the county is relying on the power of eminent domain to finalize the deal, which Wisniewska sees as the worst possible outcome.

Conservationist’s Lompoc Land Deal Goes Awry

Is Eminent Domain the Only Option in Tiger Salamander Habitat Case?

E

BY M AT T K E T T M A N N

ight years ago, the County of Santa Barbara accepted responsibility for killing two tiger salamanders, a federally protected species that lives in rural ponds and vernal pools, and the wheels of bureaucracy have been slowly grinding ever since to make things right. But along the way, the woman who tried to save the county from the expensive wrath of federal wildlife officials says she’s been most thoroughly wronged and is dismayed that the county is now blaming her for the need to unleash its powers of eminent domain — the government’s right to take private property for public use — to finalize the deal. “This could have been handled with the feathered touch of diplomacy,” explained Sonia Wisniewska, formerly Anderson, who let the county create habitat and a conservation easement for the rare creature on 16 acres of her ranch near Lompoc, in hopes of showing her regulation-fearing North County neighbors they could work with the government toward mutually beneficial results. “Instead, they came out with the A-bomb,” she said. The specifics of the real-estate transactions that led to today’s situation are tremendously complicated, and there are fundamental disagreements about who should have done what and when. But everyone agrees that the “A-bomb” of eminent domain is a last resort, especially in an agricultural region where worries about further regulations are already explosive. “Had there been an easy and straightforward way of doing this, like sitting down and signing some paperwork, the county would have done so,” explained Renée Bahl, the county’s assistant CEO, who clarified that the move is to simply record the easement, not acquire the land itself. “This is not the county’s preferred route. It is the only option.” Even ultra-conservative Supervisor Peter Adam, whose th District includes the property in question, has accepted that this is the only way to record the conservation easement.

As he explained during the May 21 hearing that kicked off the eminent-domain process, “We may be in a box that we can’t get out of.”

LIENS AND CONTRACTS AND LOANS — OH MY!

With tiger salamander blood on their hands and the U.S. Fish & Wildlife breathing down their necks, County of Santa Barbara officials spent years trying to find a property that was suitable for creating salamander habitat. Wisniewska’s remote property — a 160-acre ranch located three miles up Gypsy Canyon amid the Sta. Rita Hills wine grape appellation — offered an attractive solution. “I bought the land in a critical habitat zone because I am a conservationist,” she explained. “It is my goal to put land into conservation.” So in 2010, the county paid her $240,000 for the deal, began setting up the new ponds, and asked Wisniewska to get the other lienholders — then, Wells Fargo and Santa Barbara Bank & Trust (SBB&T) — to agree to the easement. That’s where things got a little messy. The county says that only Wisniewska would have been able to get the lenders to approve the easement because she was the one who had the loans. But Wisniewska and her supporters — including her friend, Robert Haugan, the attorney who now owns the property after buying her out — find that arrangement to be suspect, and they wonder why the county would have cut the check without finalizing the deal. “You have a legal team, and you have real-estate experts who work for you, and you’re gonna leave it up to some random individual to go out and protect your interest?” asked Haugan.“That, to me, is absolutely silly.” Regardless, Wisniewska believes that she did present the county with all of the paperwork and signatures required to seal the deal but that the county’s real-estate agents moved as “slow as molasses on a cold, wintry day” and “bumbled the transaction” by producing a “flawed document.” At the last minute, the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County, which was to hold

the easement, dropped out of the picture when Wells Fargo wouldn’t pay for further review of the contract. But with federal officials losing patience, the county needed to finalize the transaction anyway, so they added a two-year window to get the lenders on board and paid Wisniewska. At that point, she claims that county officials told her not to worry about the easement agreement and that they — none of whom are still employed by the county, incidentally — would handle it. Wisniewska didn’t worry until a couple of years later when she went through a divorce and fell on hard times. By summer 2012, the banks were ready to foreclose on the ranch, and Wisniewska realized they would be doing so without the conservation easement in place. So to protect the deal and stall foreclosure, she made the only move left. “I threw myself into the flames and filed for bankruptcy,” said Wisniewska. The county is not admitting any mistakes, but Bahl agreed that the whole deal was “unusual” and a “bit of an anomaly.” She explained, “This was the only land they could come up with, and the county knew there were risks associated with it.”

WHO’S HOLDING THE BAG NOW?

Today, though Wisniewska still lives on the property, it is officially owned by Wells Fargo and Haugan, who bailed her out and also acquired the liens once owned by SBB&T. When the county hit Haugan with the eminentdomain plans earlier this year, he foreclosed on the property without the conservation easement in place. But Wisniewska believes that, even now, the county could get the easement recorded if they just reached out to Haugan and Wells Fargo rather than pursuing the controversial and expensive steps required of eminent domain. The county’s Los Angeles–based eminent-domain attorney, Duff Murphy, did not think that was possible. “If they say they

are ready to subordinate,” said Murphy, “have them give me a call.” Haugan would be happy to do so, though he’d want to be compensated, and there seems to be a wide gap between what he wants (he proposed $175,000 as a starting point, figuring that would get chopped down) and what the county will pay (Haugan heard that they were thinking more like $40,000). Wells Fargo’s position is unknown, as a call to the bank’s attorney Glenn Wechsler was not returned, and attempts to get a response from anyone associated with this property inside the bank were unsuccessful. But mortgage experts contacted for this article questioned why a bank would ever agree to a conservation easement that devalues an already highly leveraged property, especially back in the comparably cash-strapped times of 2010. No matter what, Haugan believes that negotiating would be smarter, more predictable, and, ultimately for taxpayers, a cheaper move than the risks and legal costs associated with eminent domain, in which a judge will decide the final outcome. Among other findings, that judge will have to decide whether this is a new deal, which would require the county to pay again in full, or merely the end of the first deal, which would mean less of a payout. That’s what the county is betting on.“We already purchased the conservation easement,” said Bahl. “We are securing the investment we made.” Currently, the eminent-domain case is set for its first hearing in November, at which point Wisniewska’s dream of showing farmers and ranchers how easy it would be to save the tiger salamander with government help will be over. Instead, their fears about regulators coming in and forcibly taking land will be confirmed. “This is going to perpetuate that negative perception, and that upsets me,” said Wisniewska. “I wanted to set an example for my neighbors that, instead of destroying this habitat, they should nurture it. Instead, the county is making everyone’s worst nightmare ■ come true.”

GREEN EGGS AND HAM: Without Dr. Seuss, there would be — could be — no Bob Dylan.

Likewise, hip-hop would not — could not — ever exist. For my money, Dr. Seuss — a k a Theodor Geisel — belongs on the same jammed pedestal of American letters as Mark Twain and Bill Watterson of Calvin and Hobbes fame. For generations, the good doctor — not really an MD — provided the subliminal psychic metronome by which so many of us explored the exhilaration of our own twisted syncopations. So when I saw Senator Ted Cruz, the one-man Texas Tea Party, pimping out the Dr. Seuss masterpiece Green Eggs and Ham as part of his faux filibuster against Obamacare last week, I was inclined to grind my teeth a few miles past the gum line. Certainly the ironies overflowed up like a backed-up toilet. In real life, Dr. Seuss was as progressive as they came and would have no doubt winced at the reactionary hysterics of Cruz and his coconspirators. At its core, Green Eggs was a cautionary tale against digging in one’s heels and just saying, “No.” With Cruz and other Congressional Republicans having now voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act no less than 42 times — each time with no hope of success — clearly they have not taken that message to heart. In fact, it’s impossible to imagine that the self-proclaimed Texas Tornado ever cracked the book’s spine, let alone ever read it to his kids. Given that the Tea Party members and Republicans in Congress saw fit to shut down the federal

government over Obamacare — on the very first day the health-care exchanges created by the Affordable Care Act were open for customers — these insults have become mere incidental details to the more profound injury inflicted by the sublime dysfunction of Congress. Little wonder the popularity of that legislative body — now at 10 percent approval — has plunged lower than that of a colonoscopy. For something supposedly so heinous, there was a striking abundance of interest among Californians about signing up for the new insurance exchanges on day one (but the new law doesn’t go into effect until Jan. 1). Most news outlets report there were 2.8 million e-mail hits, causing the system created by Covered California to crash or freeze multiple times. Like many of my knee-jerk ilk, I regard the passage of the Affordable Care Act as a genuinely historic and imperfectly positive achievement. That’s not to say it won’t be a huge mess. It absolutely will be. At least for a while. Along the Central Coast, an estimated 58,000 people will benefit by vastly improved health care access because of the Affordable Care Act. About 30,000 will now find themselves eligible for Medi-Cal coverage for the first time. That’s because the eligibility rules were expanded to include people who make 138 percent the federal poverty level. Given that the cutoff had previously been no more than 100 percent of poverty — defined by the feds as $11,000 for a single

individual — we’re talking seriously poor. The other major good news is that 28,000 locals now without insurance will be eligible to sign up for one of the two insurance exchanges set up in Santa Barbara. Yes, insurance will be mandatory. But so is car insurance, and I don’t see the Tea Party going to the barricades because city cops issue approximately 1,029 citations a year to motorists for driving without proof of insurance. Yes, it will cost, but even families earning up to $95,000 a year can get subsidies. The whole plan hinges on the availability of primary care physicians of which we have a national and local shortage. It came as a huge shock to me to find out that Sansum Clinic — by far the biggest outpatient care provider in the county — is not part of this new exchange system. Sansum CEO Kurt Ransohoff told me that he’d always assumed Sansum would be involved, but that as recently as a few weeks ago, Sansum was never approached by either of the two exchange providers, Anthem Blue Cross or Blue Shield. At that time, he said Sansum approached the providers, only to be informed that Sansum was excluded. Sansum, it was explained, had failed to respond in a timely manner to an inquiry the providers had sent out. Ransohoff said Sansum has no records of any such inquiries having been made. Since then, he said Sansum and the exchanges have been talking multiple times a week. But the problem, it turns out, goes well beyond the my-dog-

ate-my-homework variety. Ransohoff said the reimbursement rate the exchanges were offering to pay Sansum for treatment provided fell well below the line of economic sustainability. He said Sansum was willing to eat some form of discount but said what the exchanges were demanding was beyond huge. There are many primary care docs outside the Sansum orbit, but many are already booked solid and are likewise leery about the low rate of return offered by the exchanges. Cottage Health System, it should be noted, has signed a contract with the Blue Cross and Blue Shield exchanges, but hospitals are not in the business of outpatient care, despite the intense use of emergency rooms by those without insurance. It’s assumed by many medical professionals that the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics will provide primary care for many of these new patients, and maybe that’s the case. But it’s worth remembering that the Neighborhood Clinics have been bleeding hundred-dollar bills and are currently undergoing emergency intervention. Despite all the optimism expressed over the changes being made, it remains to be seen the extent to which they can shoulder the load. Like I say, there are a lot of bugs still to be worked out. How that happens I don’t pretend to know. I am certain, however, you can’t get from here by shutting down the federal government and voting — 42 times — to repeal Obamacare. As a start, I’d suggest Senator Cruz and his cohorts reread Green Eggs and Ham. Better yet, read it for the first time.

Newton Wayland // – //

Newton Wayland, son of Helen Hart and L.C. Newton Wayland, was born in Santa Barbara at St. Francis Hospital on November , . He died at Cottage Hospital on September . That could read as just a move across town, but there was nothing staid about his living. Even as a boy he was drawn to hugeness, his first passion being steam trains, real ones (the city had a roundhouse in those years). Then came music. By the time he was in his teens, already an accomplished pianist, he had formed both a jazz combo and a chamber group. After graduating from Santa Barbara High School, he made a stab at Harvard, but found himself more engaged with the jazz band he started there, and he soon transferred to the New England Conservatory of Music. He earned a presence as pianist, arranger, and composer before graduating with high honors and bachelor and master of music degrees. He became first-call

keyboardist for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, was musical director at the Charles Playhouse, and arranger and keyboardist for Arthur Fiedler and the Boston Pops. His audition for successorship to Fiedler was lauded, and though John Williams was chosen, Wayland’s career as a conductor then soared. For most of his professional life he was a regular guest conductor for over  orchestras in the US and Canada, principal pops conductor of the Houston, Denver, South Bend, Oakland, and Vancouver B.C. symphonies. He made his European debut leading the Orchestre National de Lyon in his Gershwin program, and his New York debut with Peter Schickele in the P.D.Q. Bach Christmas concerts at Carnegie Hall. He became Rockefeller Artist-in-Residence at WGBH-TV in Boston, music director of the PBS Emmy Award-winning children’s show “ZOOM!”, conductor and more for the engaging Adventures in Music program.

limited. It was in his eclectic nature to want to connect classical, jazz, broadway, and popinfluenced scores. One of his many recordings was an album of his arrangements, played by what he called the Wayland Quartet, titled Jazz Loves Bach. His offbeat programming has been called free-associative, though the seeming spontaneity belied the work he put into making the arrangements interesting for the orchestra and entertaining for everyone else, including himself. Audiences were delighted with his lively and insightful commentaries delivered from the podium, glimpses of his almost encyclopedic musical knowledge. Eventually Santa Barbara drew him back. When not traveling to conduct the sometimes  concerts a year, he also tracked, in person, the last routes of the steam trains in the Americas. One of his later projects was an enactment, with a soprano (a former fellow student at NEC), of the Brahms and Clara Schumann letters and music, “ The Brahms Experience”, playing venues as far-flung as the Canterbury Music Festival in England and our Music Academy of the West. Even in retirement he continued to be the ebullient Renaissance man he had always been. His passion for the theater included an intense study of Shakespeare’s plays. History, philosophy, and geology were only a few of the other subjects he studied in depth. His analyses of Bach’s work were both enlightening and moving to the circle of friends he shared them with. After four years of immersion in the Bach Cantatas he felt he was beginning to understand them. On being hospitalized in what became his last months, he decided to turn to Bach’s organ works, gathering more scores, CDs, and books about him. He leaves two sisters and their families: Lisa Cabryl and her children William Runnette, Sean Runnette and his wife Anna Cunningham, and Deirdre Runnette and her partner Ingrid Anderson; and Constance Brown, her husband Julius, and their children Janelle and Julius Anthony and his fiancée Cara Henry. At Newton’s request there will be no memorial service. Contributions in his name may be made to the ACLU, Planned Parenthood, and the League of Women Voters. More locally, two libraries and their staffs were essential to him. Gifts to the UC Santa Barbara Music Library may be made with a personal check designated to the UC Santa Barbara Foun-

dation (please indicate on the check memo that the gift is for the Music Library in the memory of Newton Wayland, and send to UCSB Library, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA -). He may also be honored by gifts to Friends of the Montecito Library. Gratitude and admiration go to the Cottage Hospital medical ICU doctors and medical staff.

So Dense

I

n his August 8 news article on campaign fundraising [“The Mayor’s Massive Flex,” independent .com/cityracesfundraising], Nick Welsh, who usually gets things right, characterized those supporting Lesley Wiscomb, such as Dale Francisco and myself, as “vehemently opposed to schemes to promote the development of smaller, cheaper housing by allowing higher densities.” This time Nick was wrong. The initial proposals would have been a broad-brush raising of densities with the assumption that this increase would make it possible for developers to build market-rate housing affordable to workforce households. Dale Francisco and I were highly skeptical that this would be the result. We saw land prices increasing, thereby increasing the price of the units. We saw more luxury condos being built, the kind of housing almost everyone agrees is not what Santa Barbara needs. From the beginning of the General Plan process, we did support higher densities for rental projects. We thought these could provide affordable housing for moderate-income households. In July 2011, architects held a design charrette in which they worked to prove that they could design attractive, Santa Barbara–style and –scale buildings with high density that would be affordable to buy and to rent. They proved that they could not build affordable for-sale units with the increased densities. The charrette did prove that higher density could result in rental units affordable to workforce households. Subsequently, the experimental Average Unit-Size Density (AUD) program was developed with incentives for building rental housing. It allows increased density for smaller units. Both Dale and I supported the AUD ordinance. So does Lesley Wiscomb. Dale and I are supporting Lesley Wiscomb because we all agree that new development should be carefully managed to assure that it provides the kind of housing Santa Barbara needs in projects — Sheila Lodge, S.B. that are compatible with the community.

Shut Down the U.S.A.

T

he turbulent trajectory the Republican Party has sent our nation’s well-being through with passage of bills that are guaranteed to be rejected in the Senate and cause a government shutdown has most shaking their heads in disbelief. But this is not the first time a

political group filled with intransigent and supposed patriots have tried to not only pollute the waters of moral decency but blame the group on the side of compassion to be the perpetrators of a heinous act. Called the “Fire-Eaters,” Southern Democrats who staunchly supported slavery claimed that it was not their perverse belief in the institu-

tion of enslavement of African Americans or their religious-based racism that would cause war and possible disunion of the United States but those who advocated for freedom of black people in America. They further proclaimed that the election of a man like Abraham Lincoln would be the cause of a civil war. The adept and politically savvy Mr. Lincoln responded to this charge while campaigning in 1860 with the story of a man traveling down a road who is met by an armed robber: “A highwayman holds a pistol to my ear and mutters through his teeth, ‘Stand and deliver, or I shall kill you, and then you will be the murderer.’��� A destination unknown is fraught with peril, and while polls might vacillate in coming weeks over which party will receive the most blame, the picking of winners and losers will pale in comparison to the perfidious aftermath of a strategy that uses hostage-taking as a replacement for governing as the Founding Fathers intended for our country. — Jeffrey Moualim, Santa Ynez

Apps a Lot

J

ust before midnight last week, a young man in his twenties ran up behind me as I was walking home to West Beach from work on Cabrillo near Castillo. He was wearing tan shorts, a gray hoodie, and a rubber, red devil Halloween mask; he was also right handed as that was the hand the small-caliber revolver was held in. With weapon drawn, he backed me up to the entrance gate of my home and demanded my wallet and phone. I was stunned. I had believed him to be a late-night jogger trying to pass me

on the sidewalk as I turned toward my front door. I dropped my phone on the ground behind my entrance gate, and that confused him. He started toward me at the entrance to my home. My wife, 5-month-old daughter, and almost 3-year-old son were sleeping; any stray bullets could have harmed them. After explaining I would give him my wallet, which had no cash, just IDs and credit cards, I felt he was going to pull the trigger. I put my hand up to deflect him and started advancing. He looked puzzled, shook his head, and must have realized how much noise and time this was taking; he fled down the street on foot. After I called 9-1-1, the police responded in less than five minutes with a police dog that started tracking a scent. The officers searched on foot throughout the area, looking between houses and into backyards for at least a block in each direction, their focus trained on trailing the police dog, and they also drove around the entire neighborhood. Two things I learned from this incident. First, be aware of your surroundings. I had a great night at work, was introduced to a new app on my phone by a coworker, and had my nose glued to my phone as I walked, whistling, to my home. I was unaware of anyone around me until it was too late. Second, do not resist a perpetrator when he has a gun pointed at you. I know this and would practice this under any other condition, but I was not thinking clearly and was thinking of my family’s safety. Be aware and cooperate; things can be replaced, but your family cannot replace — G. Lytle, S.B. you. cont’d p. 25

Library Heroes

T

his letter is in recognition of some unsung heroes. Our society has cruelly abandoned many of our lessfortunate fellow citizens, including the elderly, physically disabled, mentally ill, and others who have lost their jobs and pensions or savings due to costly medical bills and medicines. The sta at the Santa Barbara Public Library, particularly the security people, deal respectfully, compassionately, yet ďŹ rmly when necessary with our less-fortunate neighbors. They oer a daytime refuge with dignity for the homeless. On many occasions I have witnessed the patience exercised by the security people and other sta members with troubled homeless people. So, with no additional salary, they take on the role of social worker as well as their library position. Thank you, all you ďŹ ne people who work at the library, for helping our less-fortunate neighbors feel welcome and comfortable, at least in the library. — Ken Cohen, S.B.

Rehab Wanted

I

was the person in the high-speed chase from Ventura to Buellton on April 14. I was sentenced to four years by Ventura County courts, and the California Highway Patrol has charged me $7,750 for a vehicle that wasn’t totaled by my 1999 Honda; I just bought them a new car — during the pit move [during which the CHP attempted to box him in on the ď›œď˜šď›œ], my car “grazedâ€? a CHP car. I was oered nine years at 80 percent if I didn’t accept the plea of four years and $7,750 restitution. Here’s why California’s prisons are full. I was two times the legal amount (BAC) as a drunk driver — I could have been sentenced to lesser jail time and a program. No one was hurt; no one was seriously endangered; the highway was closed o. I think I’m doing too much time for my crime, without any real program or rehab to help me change my life. Instead I’m sentenced to a crowded place called Wasco State Prison R/C. Ventura County, thanks ‌

for not helping and no rehab for my drinking. All I smell is booty, feet, sweat, and urine in a “way-overâ€?-crowded prison. That’s the state’s way in rehab!!

Dog-Bite Dangers

A

ccording to S.B. County Animal Control ďŹ gures, pit-bull bites rose 50 percent between 2011 and 2012. Unfortunately, the projected bites for 2013 is 180, a 100 percent increase since last year. There are 175 breeds in the U.S., plus many mixed breeds; yet, in the last 30 years, pit bulls are responsible for about two-thirds of the fatal and disďŹ guring attacks in the U.S. Many dog-rescue people deliberately lie to those adopting vicious breeds. Their goal is to save these dogs at all costs, even if that cost could take the life of your child or pet. The S.B. Humane Society does numerous tests on dogs prior to adopting them out. I would not hesitate to — Hazel Mortensen, Solvang adopt from them.

Wanna Run an Arts Foundation?

FOSTERING THE ARTS: You say you want to be in charge of a 27-room, nearly 22,000-squarefoot mansion with 23.5 acres of breathtaking views of Santa Barbara, ocean, and mountains? But not have to pay the taxes out of your own pocket or do the dusting? Just you and a few others sitting around, figuring out what to do with the place and how to “foster the arts.” You probably won’t be able to live there, and you won’t get paid, but what the heck? All eyes will be on you and about $85 million worth of real estate. If this appeals to you, the line is forming. I’m talking, of course, of Bellosguardo (“beautiful lookout”), the late copper heiress Huguette (oo·get) Clark’s French-style estate on an East Cabrillo Boulevard mesa adjoining (yes) the Santa Barbara Cemetery. Always generous, Huguette donated the money in 1928 to create the Andrée Clark Bird Refuge across the street, named for her late sister. Her mother, Anna, fearing invasion after a Japanese sub shelled Ellwood in 1942, bought the 215-acre Rancho Alegre in the Santa Ynez Valley. Later, it was donated to the Boy Scouts. Clark willed the formation of an arts foundation at Bellosguardo, but it took some gnarly recent negotiations in New York to make it happen. (As of now, according to Bill Dedman, NBC News investigative reporter, much depends on the IRS waiving $16 million to $18 million in

Clark’s neglected gift taxes. But there seems to be optimism that the IRS’s cold heart will warm enough to help create the charity.) Here’s the deal: The 10-member Bellosguardo Foundation’s board will start off this way: Seven people will be nominated by Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider; one by Clark’s longtime Santa Barbara attorney, James Hurley; one by Clark’s distant (and I mean distant) relatives; and one by the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., a Clark family favorite also involved in the negotiations over her will. The New York attorney general, who quarterbacked negotiations, will decide who makes the team. Terms are three years. At this writing, I’m not aware of any nominations. Mayor Schneider says, “In the coming weeks, I will establish a working group to assist me in determining these seven nominees.” The goal, she told Dedman, “is to open the Bellosguardo house and gardens to the public as a center that will foster and promote the arts.” That sounds pretty vague, but go ahead; foster away. So far, no one is calling it a museum. It does contain some paintings, including family portraits. Clark’s own artwork will come west from her New York property, but all her fine-art collection will be sold to make the settlement work. The 19 relatives, most of whom never met her, sued to overturn the 2005 will and came out of the negotiations with $34.5 million. Clark’s

beloved doll collection, valued at $1.7 million, will also be shipped west to Bellosguardo. One decision the new board may consider is whether it properly fits in with a fine-arts foundation or should be sold to finance more arty activities. The settlement included $4.5 million for Bellosguardo, but one wonders how long that will last in view of the need to upgrade an aging asset (some of the toilets sport signs reading “Do Not Flush.”) According to the recently published book Empty Mansions (Ballantine Books) by Dedman and Huguette’s cousin Paul Clark Newell Jr., the building’s architectural style is late-18th-century French with Georgian influences, with 13 chimneys. It was designed by famed Reginald Johnson, who had just finished the Biltmore. The home features a grand circular stairway with elaborate railings made of copper (of course). Huguette never visited Bellosguardo after the early 1950s and died in New York in 2011. If you, as a boardmember, hold receptions or tea parties, the largest space would be the music room, 46 feet by 23.

The Santa Barbara Museum of Art approached her in 1991 and 2004 to donate the place, to no avail.

Huguette Clark and the Strange Legacy of Bellosguardo

S

anta Barbara has a new public treasure — Huguette Clark’s former estate Bellosguardo. Now the magnificent 23.5-acre property that’s been sitting empty at  East Cabrillo Boulevard for almost 60 years belongs to a specially created entity known as the Bellosguardo Foundation. With 1,000 feet of ocean frontage and only the quiet folks in the Santa Barbara Cemetery for neighbors, the spectacular mansion on the bluff above East Beach has to be the most conspicuously unoccupied private home in Southern California. Vacant except for a team of caretakers and groundskeepers since the 1950s, Bellosguardo has for many years been kept in Huguette Clark’s preferred state, which is as close as possible to the way it was when her mother, Anna Clark, lived there in the 1930s. The result is already a kind of museum, as rich in period plumbing as it is in period furniture. What’s more, through the auspices of the Bellosguardo Foundation, this one-of-a-kind property will also belong to the city of Santa Barbara. According to the settlement, which was administered by the Attorney General of New York, seven of the 10 initial members of the Bellosguardo board will be nominated by Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider. In a statement expressing her satisfaction with the agreement, Mayor Schneider identified the foundation’s primary mission as “to open the Bellosguardo house and gardens to the

by Charles Donelan public as a center that will foster and promote the arts.” In her remarks at the annual Santa Barbara Beautiful awards ceremony, held on Sunday, September 29, at the nearby campus of the Music Academy of the West, Schneider called on the community to “dream big, and dream bold” about what to do with what has up until now been a conspicuously underused asset. Many questions remain, however, not only about the condition of Bellosguardo, but also about the city’s benefactor, Huguette Clark. Why was the property empty for so long? Who exactly was the reclusive Ms. Clark? As with so many features of Clark’s long and mysterious life, the gift of Bellosguardo to Santa Barbara presents an enigma. While she was alive, the buildings and grounds were almost entirely dormant, as were several other extremely valuable properties that she owned, including an estate in New Canaan, Connecticut, called Le Beau Château and two enormous apartments in a luxury building on th Avenue and nd Street in Manhattan. Huguette Clark inherited a fortune of approximately $300 million from her father, the copper king W.A. Clark, and she could have lived anywhere in the world, but instead she chose to spend the last decades of her life in a darkened hospital room, administering her affairs by phone, letter, and most often, personal check. While the establishment of a center for the arts at Bellosguardo appears likely to entail some additional fundraising, it’s absolutely certain to require considerable creative think-

ing, as well. The task of taking the measure of Huguette Clark will render the formulation of an appropriate identity for the Bellosguardo Foundation an interesting challenge. What kind of public institution will best reflect the spirit of a woman who for most of her long life declined to go out in public?

From Recluse to Best Seller The question of what Clark intended that her Santa Barbara property would become is only one of the many riddles addressed by a fascinating new book. Empty Mansions: The Mysterious Life of Huguette Clark and the Spending of a Great American Fortune by Bill Dedman and Paul Clark Newell Jr. has gotten not just Santa Barbara but all of America reading and talking about Huguette Clark. Through the popularity of this highly readable account of her life, an elderly woman has gone from her status of three years ago as an ultrarecluse, when she was nearly un-findable and living under an assumed name in a nondescript New York hospital room, to the top of the New York Times nonfiction best-seller list. And if the story of Clark’s very private life can stir so much interest, who knows what will happen in Santa Barbara when those East Cabrillo gates finally open? Since its publication on September 10, Dedman and Newell’s brilliantly researched, tough-minded, and fair volume has spent two consecutive weeks in the top 10 of the

The heavily lawyered proceedings, which took place in the office of New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, did not leave all who were expecting something from the estate equally happy. The members of her extended family — all relations from her father’s first marriage — will split approximately $34.5 million, but Clark’s former nurse Hadassah Peri, who received millions in personal gifts while Clark was still alive, gets nothing and will have to pay back approximately one-fifth of what she was given.

1920s and 1930s, and, to the extent that she led any kind of public life as an adult, Huguette did so in Santa Barbara. For instance, she got married here in 1928 in a private ceremony that was nevertheless covered extensively in both the local and the national press. Huguette’s husband, William Gower, was a Princeton grad and the son of W.A. Clark’s top accountant. But Huguette could not be a wife to Bill Gower and was separated from him before the year was out and divorced by 1930. She then resumed her maiden name of Clark while retaining the married title of Mrs. or Madame. Although the failure of her marriage may have had an impact on her desire to spend time in Santa Barbara, it was the deaths of both her sister and her mother that seemed to have pushed Huguette definitively into self-isolation. The sense that Bellosguardo was not a safe place first took hold during the early years of World War II, when the mansion’s exposed position on the bluff was considered vulnerable to a potential Japanese attack. After installing blackout shades and crossing the barbed wire that had been laid on Cabrillo Boulevard in anticipation of an invasion, Huguette and Anna moved to Rancho Alegre, a property that Anna acquired in Santa Ynez and that has since been given to the Boy Scouts. Even after the war, mother and daughter often stayed at the nearby Biltmore rather than an opening the house for their Santa Barbara ara visits. Although Huguette’s shyness yness had a role in her increasingly insular lifestyle, clearly a sense of fear was in n play, as well. Having enjoyed manyy trips to the continent as a young woman, she later admitted that she was afraid to return to France in case of a second French Revolution.

Even though she didn’t come out here, I know that she was in constant contact with John Douglas, the caretaker, and that she intended to preserve and protect the property. She’s been extraordinarily generous to Santa Barbara, and while she was alive, we did what we could to protect her privacy.”

The Investigation and the Empty Mansions Book Journalist Bill Dedman first became interested in Huguette Clark through another one of her empty mansions, Le Beau Château, which he noticed when scanning the real-estate listings. At the time, it was listed for sale at the highest price then being asked for any property in the state of Connecticut. He found that virtually everything about the Château’s owner was mysterious, from the pronunciation of her name to why she had paid to maintain an entirely unfurnished estate in tony New Canaan. When Dedman first wrote about the case for MSNBC, thousands of emails poured in from readers wanting to know more. It was at this time that Dedman became aware of the fact that questions were being raised about the men who managed Huguette Clark’s money. Her accountant was a felon and a registered sex offender, and her New York lawyer had a record of benefiting substantially from the will of someone he had represented, a serious breach of fiduciary duty.“It was at that point, when it came out that both the attorney and the accountant had already once inherited from another client, that it tipped over into a criminal investigation,” Dedman told me.“The nurse, Hadassah Peri, had already received millions in gifts, also raising a lot of questions. The way I saw, it was,“It’s smoke; let’s see if there’s fire.” That’s when Dedman met Paul Clark Newell Jr., a cousin of Huguette’s who had managed to get closer to her than nearly anyone, albeit almost entirely by telephone. Newell’s father died while working on a book about Huguette’s father, and there was already a substantial archive established by that effort. In Dedman’s effort to understand what Huguette’s life had been like, the approximately 50 conversations that Paul Clark Newell Jr. had recorded with her were a great windfall.“Their conversations, which we have included with the audiobook, filled in some of the gaps,” said Dedman. With the help of Newell’s evidence and firsthand knowledge, Dedman was able to begin forming a stronger impression of who this woman actually was, rather than having to accept what other people said about her. This last is a crucial point with Dedman, and one he emphasized in our recent conversation about the book and about Huguette Clark. When I observed that he is scrupulously reticent when it comes to speculating about Huguette’s motives, he agreed and added the following self-description: “By practice and temperament, I maintain distance. For example, I don’t write about what people ‘believe.’ People lie, people posture, and people often give one reason for something they’ve done when they actually have another. It can be tempting to create dialogue, but I won’t, and it’s for the same reason that you won’t find me writing that someone is a devout Christian. The outward signs may be there, but if you aren’t that person, there’s no way you can be certain.” Dedman’s objective attitude becomes particularly important later on in the book, when predatory figures surround Huguette, each peddling some version of her that forwards their cause. I found it hard to continue with the narrative at times, not because I wasn’t interested, but because I found Huguette annoying, especially as she became more reclusive. Dedman, who was aware of this possibility, nevertheless chose to leave it up to the reader to decide what to make of his subject.“I assume readers are smart,” he said,“and if you give them facts, they will think good thoughts. I don’t know why she liked dolls so much or what she found so interesting about the Smurfs. But I can say with certainty that this woman, who was trained as an artist, knew a great deal about animation and that

she liked fairytales of all kinds very much.” But what about the difficulties that many readers may have with accepting the extravagant wastefulness that is so apparent in the book’s main title, Empty Mansions? Won’t people need a way to think about all the resources Huguette Clark marshaled that were never used? “Well, we pushed and pulled at the examples to pair instances of her extravagance with instances of her generosity.

Clark while he is still in his early years as a businessman, and then hit the scandals that arose in relation to his political career and decide that the Senator was not such a great man after all,” he said.“I didn’t write the book to correct people’s perceptions of these figures; I wrote it to present as best I could the known facts about their lives.” Ultimately, the book’s greatest achievement — even more impressive than the massive amount of research and organization it required — may be precisely this reluctance to judge. Dedman offered a personal analogy by way of explaining his adherence to a code of strict objectivity.“While I was working on this book, my grandmother died in Tennessee, and I went down there to clean her house. In her attic, I went through all sorts of things, some dating from as far back as World War I. There were love letters, hats, and even a ledger book that she used to track the money she saved. She tried to save enough so that she could buy one nice new piece of furniture per year. I don’t know that there were any family secrets, but even the old LIFE magazines with her mailing labels said something to me. And then, after meeting Paul, it became much more real to me that this woman was part of someone’s family. And you know, you can learn quite a bit about someone from looking at their checkbook!” As the Bellosguardo Foundation begins its work of building a public institution around this extraordinary legacy, the board will do well to heed the wise path already marked out by Dedman and Newell’s sophisticated, yet reticent approach. As Dedman writes in the epilogue to Empty Mansions, even though Huguette Clark may have preferred to live the final decades of her life “in a hospital room, with her hollandaise and brioche and cashmere sweaters,” she had the “courage … to be an artist at a time when that wasn’t an approved path for a woman, to break away from a marriage that she didn’t want, to resist the manipulations of her hospital and her museum to get more of her money, [and] to leave most of her estate to her friends and a charity that honored her mother’s memory.” Whether or not Huguette Clark truly did lead “a life of integrity,” as this final chapter claims, her story and her legacy Bellosguardo are with us yet, the former already open for discussion and contemplation, and the latter, one day soon, open for visitors and a new public life.

Street photography got a little meta this week, as Robert Perea stopped for a second while walking down state. Perea is in his second year at the Brooks Institute downtown and recently returned from the Big Apple’s New York Fashion Week. “It’s always been something I’ve been interested in — I just gave it a shot and took a leap of faith,” he said about his move from Arizona to S.B. to study at Brooks.

“Jiujitsu was what I found to support myself when I decided to stay [in the U.S.] ... I wasn’t really expecting to start a school and stay for a long time — then once I started teaching, I fell in love with it,” said Rodrigo Clark, owner and head instructor at the downtown Gracie Barra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Clark, originally from Brazil, comes from a strong BJJ family — his father was trained by the Gracie family themselves. He celebrated 10 years of teaching in the S.B. area last week.

Getting Good

Health Care

It’s more essential than ever for folks to take charge of their medical care. But how? In his book, Surviving American Medicine, Dr. Cary Presant gives readers what they need to know to make informed choices. Here are a few tips: Bring a list of your concerns, symptoms, and questions; bring family or a friend to help listen and ask questions; write down the answers; record the doctor’s advice; if you need medicine, ask if there is a generic brand or free samples; ask what illnesses you are at risk of getting based on current health and family history. Dr. Presant will read from and sign copies of his book Saturday, October 26, 3-5 p.m., Tecolote Book Shop, 1470 E. Valley Rd., Montecito. Call 969-4977. Surviving American Medicine is available at area bookshops or amazon.com. — MD

n the 1980s, Jane Fonda famously made aerobics a national craze. To whip yourself into shape, all you needed were neon spandex, a headband, and a VCR. Today, exercise is more complicated; there are myriad fitness disciplines to choose from that target specific parts of the body and achieve distinct goals. It can get pricey doing a Goldilocks to find the perfect regimen, so how do you decide which one is best for you? Fortunately, a group of Santa Barbara folks have been working for the past three years to bring a unique exercise opportunity to town. It’s called Open Streets and consists of a whole day of sampler classes and workshops geared toward a healthy lifestyle. “It’s an initiative for public health and sustainable transportation,” explained Robin Elander, S.B. Open Streets coordinator. “The day is so people can get a feel for a sustainable future, a healthy active lifestyle, and to continue to build a better and stronger community.” Getting fit is just one focus of the event. It is also a call to reduce our carbon footprint by using alternative transport as much as possible, such as walking and biking, rather than relying on air-polluting vehicles. For that reason, Cabrillo Boulevard, where the exposition takes place, will be closed to motorized traffic for the day. People can still park in the Cabrillo parking lots, but twoand-a-half miles of the street will be car-free. There will be plenty to capture the attention of all ages. To get the blood flowing, there are beach boot camps, kickboxing, Brazilian capoeira, jiu-jitsu, zumba, salsa dancing, yoga, and stroller fitness.

or participate in health screenings, classes on how to eat well, and educational workshops. There will also be face painting, artwork on display, and other family-oriented events. It takes a village to pull off an event like this — hundreds of sponsors and volunteers are helping to bring Open Streets to fruition, but more of both are still needed. There will be a volunteer boot camp with Jenny Schatzle Saturday, October 19, at 9 a.m., followed by a volunteer orientation at 10 a.m., at Chase Palm Park. As for sponsorships, a bit more money is needed to make it to Open Streets’ goal of $5,000 by October 7. The purpose of S.B. Open Streets is summed up succinctly on the organization’s website: “By closing the street to traffic for a day and creating a space for families, individuals, and organizations to get out and move, try new fitness classes, walk, bike, or bus to the event and connect and eat in a community space, we are creating a better environment in which to build healthier individuals and a stronger community with less reliance on motorized vehicles.” Now go outside and play.

MATCHMAKER: Isabella Gourmet Foods owner Amy Chalker loves bringing area artisans together.

SPEAKEASY

The

Great Gatsby

4·1·1

Goes Gourmet by Shannon Kelley

I

like to think I’m the matchmaker!” says Amy Chalker, owner of Isabella Gourmet Foods, with a big smile and a mischievous twinkle in her eye. She’s talking about a specific bit of matchmaking mischief in particular, one worthy of the twinkle: It involves cocktails. As part of epicure.sb month, Chalker’s bodega, which specializes in artisan goodies of every stripe, will be transformed into a ’20s-style speakeasy and play host to two pop-up events, dubbed The Great Gatsby Goes Gourmet. And, as anyone who knows anything about Gatsby (man of mystery though he was) — or F. Scott Fitzgerald — would expect, the drinks are going to be serious. And they’ll feature the coming-together of several standouts of Santa Barbara’s epicurean scene. The star of the show will be, not to put too fine a point on it, the booze. For this, Chalker tapped Ian Cutler of S.B.’s only distillery, Cutler’s Artisan Spirits, way back in July when he was still in the midst of the madness that opening his Funk Zone storefront entailed. She’d heard about him and tagged along with a friend who was visiting him one day — a mouthwatering selection of Jar Art syrups and Alchemy vinegars in tow. She was already plotting the Great Gatsby events to be timed with October’s epicure.sb celebration and “wanted to put the bug in his ear early because I knew everybody would want him!” In other words, she called dibs. Cutler loved the syrups and came in to try various other Jar Art products carried at Isabella — all of which had him equally enamored. Chalker passed this bit of “I think he likes you” intel along to David Libby, the artist behind Jar Art (see “Art in a Jar” at right), who in turn got excited about working with Cutler. And a match was made. In addition to putting their heads — and concoctions — together to create the drinks that will be featured at the Gatsby

events (I’ve heard rumors of something involving Cutler’s can’tkeep-it-on-the-shelves apple-cider bourbon mixed with a bit of Libby’s equally popular ginger syrup), the two are currently cooking up a plan to start making artisan bitters. (That sound you hear? That is the sound of Santa Barbara cocktail hounds’ collective head exploding.) But, for now, Cutler is deeply focused on what he’ll be mixing up for the speakeasy nights. For, despite the fact that he is of generations of distilling stock, he does not look down on mixers. Au contraire: “I’ve always had an interest [in mixing drinks],” he says. “My family’s been in the liquor business for quite a while, and I’ve been kind of a bartender since I was a little kid — at every party my grandparents had, I was always the one mixing the cocktails.” He’ll craft three drinks for the events, using his own bourbons and vodkas; guests will get to try all three, each of which will be paired with an hors d’oeuvre. And all of it — the cocktails and the bites — will star the stuffs found on Isabella’s shelves. (In addition to Jar Art syrups, Cutler’s been playing with Noble maple syrups, Lori’s lemonades, Sweet Lady Cook jams — check out her favorite cocktail recipe below — and Alchemy vinegars.) Once guests have reserved their spot, they’ll be given a password and a time to arrive — the event will be slow-paced but staggered to keep groups on the more intimate side so that everyone will get to watch Cutler work his magic — and to give him time to keep up with demand, which is sure to be as hot as Gatsby’s love Get creative!

And while, naturally, they’re perfectly delicious on toast, Blanco loves using a jam to replace the syrup element in a cocktail.“It’s fun to show their diversity,” she says.“We also really love them mixed into homemade vinaigrettes and paired with cheese and charcuterie.” For — SK info, visit sweetladycook.com.

avid Libby may be the most unas-

suming professional chef on earth. The L.A. native has worked the kitchens of restaurants, country clubs, and hotels; he’s cooked for politicians (including President Reagan), actors, and athletes, and, while executive chef at Anaheim White House Restaurant, was even commissioned by French wine society Chevaliers du Tastevin to prepare the cuisine for a winemaker dinner held inside a Tahitian volcano(!). Currently, he’s the executive chef at a private club in Santa Barbara, whose easy schedule (lunch only) leaves him plenty of time to tinker, and — frequently in collaboration with Chalker — to cater smaller events. This allows him to give his food the kind of time and attention he believes it deserves: In both his catering and his Jar Art creations, his intense focus on both flavors and appearance is evident. As Jar artist in chief, Libby likes to experiment. He’s made wine jellies for various wineries for the past year and a half and, more recently, has expanded into organic, micro-batch syrups, extracts, and jams. His line includes everything from vanilla, young ginger, and yuzu syrups and extracts to preserved yuzu peel (gone for the season; sorry!), balsamic onion confit, tomatillo-ginger-chile jam, and the rosemary syrup he’s currently putting together for Cutler. Keeping it small allows him to give his imagination free reign — to play and take risks. He has a small crew of “tasters” around town and will frequently deliver a jar or two of his latest products-in-development to Isabella Gourmet Foods, which serves as a testing ground. (“We tell him if it’s selling, then he brings more, in cuter jars!” Isabella owner Amy Chalker says.) Indeed, the beautiful vintage bottles and jars are undeniably part of the allure, but what’s inside is even more tempting. For info, visit jarartist.blogspot.com or call 636-8044. — SK

BACK HOME AGAIN: Longtime Jimmy’s regular Bob Lovejoy (right) and his son Clay (left) spared no expense in remaking the historic bar into the Pickle Room. “This building deserves it,” said Bob, but he also believes in the people making it happen, namely bartender Willy Gilbert (middle). “Willy is the key to this whole place,” said Bob.

Reincarnating Santa Barbara’s

FAVORITE BAR Jimmy’s Oriental Gardens Reopens as Pickle Room

T

by Matt Kettmann

he world’s done a lot of spinning in the seven years since Jimmy’s Oriental Gardens shut its doors after six decades of serving Chinese food and cocktails to Santa Barbara. I, for one, moved out of the yellow house around the corner and traded my spot at the glossy red bar for marriage and kids. Beloved bartender Willy Gilbert poured for a time at the Wildcat and Jill’s Place but found his steadiest gig amid the bocce ball and dead animal heads of Arnoldi’s. Happy-hour regular Bob Lovejoy went from installing tile and marble to opening Three Pickles deli with his son Clay on the same block of Canon Perdido Street. And Jimmy’s longtime owner Tommy Chung — the one who decided to close his family’s business in 2006 and sell the building to the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation, which runs the Presidio across the street — is no longer with us, having passed away suddenly in July at 70 years old, seven years to the day that he closed the bar. But a couple of Saturdays ago, the night the iconic bar was reopened by the Lovejoys as the Pickle Room, most of those changes were rinsed away — jazz was on the speakers, every stool and booth was packed by buzzing bodies young and old, and Willy was back behind the bar, serving Tommy’s mai tais and cold Tsingtao beers to familiar, smiling faces.“It’s interesting, to say the least,” explained Willy of being back. “I’m still looking at the same walls behind the bar, but the place is actually quite beautiful; it’s almost like working a new bar. It’s gonna take a while to get some of the kinks out, but it’s really nice to see a lot of the old faces and how excited people are to see it back open again.”

Few are as excited as proprietor Bob Lovejoy, who first stumbled into Jimmy’s in 1976 while working on nearby Mexican restaurant La Playa Azul. Stepping

out of Jimmy’s 30 years later for some fresh air, Lovejoy noticed a “For Lease” sign on the building next door — today home to Handlebar Coffee — and decided that was where he and Clay, who’d just sold his wholesale meat company, would realize their long-standing dream of opening a deli. They christened it Three Pickles in spring of 2006, thrilled that their preferred watering hole was literally steps away.“I thought I’d died and gone to heaven,” said Bob. Not even Willy had the heart to tell him that Jimmy’s was closing three months later, but soon Bob learned the bad news like the rest of us, and we all spent that summer soaking up our last drinks, our last nibbles of tea-smoked chicken, our last slurps of pork noodle soup.“I’ve been staring at that building cross-eyed ever since,” explained Bob, and he wasn’t the only one, with just about every bar owner in town inquiring about the space. The Lovejoys got the upper hand in 2010, when they moved Three Pickles into the restaurant side of Jimmy’s.“But once that was opened,” said Bob,“my eye kept turning over here.” So ensued a paperwork quest of grail-like proportions, a nearly two-year-long battle of real-estate chess and liquor-license bingo to get the required permits and permissions.“We maneuvered our way in here nicely,” said Bob, and they spared no expense to carefully renovate the place, spending more than $225,000. It’s hard to imagine anyone better suited for the challenge, as the Lovejoys treated the property with the care of devotees but with the meticulous attention of professional designers.“I grew up in red booths,” said Bob, whose grandpa owned bars and cafés down south, and whose stepmom ran an antique shop when he was a kid.“I’ve always had a reverence for what was old,” he explained. “This is our interpretation and restoration of a 1940s bar.” The updated design is based largely on a faded postcard from decades ago, which revealed mirrors on the back wall rather than the old wood panels, and a bar

Since partnering up earlier this year, the women have articulated and honed a vision that’s aiming to change the face of Hollywood, not to mention bring some stellar cinematic programming to Santa Barbara. “We were all friends and all talking about doing something different,” said Johnson via phone earlier this week. Guided by Johnson’s and Bluitt’s former roles in and around Hollywood, the trio quickly got to work.

The event also features a post-film Q&A with subject and star Angela Davis. “It’s current, it’s a wonderful film, it’s made by a filmmaker we love and whose work we have taught before,” said Johnson.“We just thought it would be an incredible way for us

to announce who we are in terms of our politics and the type of work we’re going to do.” Step two, Johnson and Banks explain, involves creating the first and only online archive for independent films featuring and made by women of color. It’s a huge project and one that’s only in its infant stages, but it’s destined to change the way the film industry operates for people in and outside Hollywood’s Big Six. “Of all of the six gigantic companies who are responsible for generating 90 percent of film content around the world, they’ve only made five films directed by black women — ever,” said Johnson.“It’s an incredible moment to understand why these women don’t have the resources to represent themselves, especially in terms of a digital divide. We see ourselves as the curators of that historical legacy.” In the coming months, Banks, Johnson, and Bluitt will begin cataloging more than 1,000 films, as well as setting up a web-based platform for women-of-color filmmakers to connect with agents, publicity firms, and actors. “We talk a lot about the term ‘minding the gap,’” said Banks,“but we don’t just want to mind it and recognize it — we want to close it.” Sol Sisters Rising present Free Angela and All Political Prisoners at UCSB’s Pollock Theater on Thursday, October 10, at 7 p.m. Call 893-4637 or visit solsistersrising.com for info. — Aly Comingore

It’s been a long time coming — 17 years — but Mazzy Star’s fourth studio album, Seasons of Your Day, has finally seen the light of day. Featuring the original lineup plus My Bloody Valentine/The Warm Inventions’ Colm Ó Cíosóig, it has definitely been worth the wait. Graceful opener “In the Kingdom” is organ drenched and Motown flavored and features Hope Sandoval smoothly singing over an arrangement reminiscent of Smokey Robinson & The Miracles’ “The Tracks of My Tears.” Elsewhere, the dazzling “California” finds Sandoval’s beguilingly sensual voice undulating warmly over David Roback’s exquisite strumming, while “I’ve Gotta Stop” sounds like pure, vintage Mazzy. Further on, several beautifully bluesy tracks predominate: the plaintive “Sparrow,” soporific “Spoon,” (featuring the late, legendary folk-guitarist Bert Jansch’s mesmerizing licks), and fervid album closer “Flying Low,” which chugs away hypnotically with killer slide guitar and harmonica. It’s artfully produced, completely ethereal, and sure to please longtime fans, as well as capture some new hearts and minds. — Sean Mageean

STAGE to SCREEN Tony Kushner on Theater, Movies, and Television by Tom Jacobs

T

ony Kushner genuinely believes in the American political process. That’s not a popular position to take, or an easy one to defend, in the current era of partisan gridlock. But the Pulitzer Prize–winning playwright takes the long view. Kushner wrote the screenplay for the Steven Spielberg film Lincoln, which was released last November to rave reviews. It charted how the man generally considered our greatest president charmed and maneuvered his way into getting a dysfunctional Congress to pass the th Amendment to the Constitution — the one that abolished slavery. The process wasn’t pretty, but it worked, and tracking it leads Kushner to hesitate before endorsing the cliché that politics is the art of the possible. “I believe that politics is also the art of the miraculous,” he said. The author of Angels in America will be in conversation with UCSB theater professor Irwin Appel at 8 p.m. Friday in UCSB’s Campbell Hall. Last week, as he was picking up his poodle from doggie daycare, Kushner spoke with The Santa Barbara Independent by phone. What’s on your mind today? I’m working on a screenplay for Steven Spielberg, so that’s completely what’s on my mind at the moment — the specifics of a couple of scenes I’m working on. I can’t go into any details about it, because I’m not allowed to, but I’m trying to get it done before I come out to the West Coast. I’m hoping I can. It’s based on an actual historical event. It’s a complicated account of a very dense historical moment, and not one an audience is going to be very familiar with, so it presents a lot of challenges in terms of exposition. I’m sorting out how to be true to the complexities of history while telling a dramatically satisfying story. Does crafting a screenplay take a long time for you? There were reports that Lincoln had a very long gestation. Lincoln was about seven and one-half years, between my getting hired and awards season this past year. It was really my whole life. It was such a vast subject. It took me a long time to figure out how to tell the story — and how to condense it. After the filming, Steven and I worked closely during the time when he was editing. It meant everything to me that he was willing to keep talking. I can be tireless; you might say relentless! In the long run, he makes his own decisions. I knew I couldn’t compel anything. But I felt enormously listened to. For Steven, clarity of narrative is a democratic principle. He doesn’t dumb things down, but the idea that anybody would be left behind, in terms of being able to follow the story, is completely alien to him. If you’re confused, he doesn’t say, ‘You’re not smart enough to follow me.’ He’s insistent that our job is to make things clear, and he knows how to do it.

Playwrights are not, by nature, necessarily the world’s greatest storytellers. I don’t think that’s what playwriting’s about. I do think narrative is enormously important in film, and he’s one of the world’s great storytellers. Talk a bit about that. Playwriting is not about storytelling? There are some wonderful dramatists who are not interested in narrative at all. I am. I’m really happy when I come up with a good story or have found a good story to tell. But in playwriting, the argument, the dialectic, is the key. The narrative follows from that, supports that. If you find the right narrative for the battles you’re trying to put onstage, you’ll write a really good play. The story has to have a narrative logic and TALK IT OUT: Playwright, screenwriter, and Pulitzer Prize winner be plausible.

Violinist Ray Chen Gets Intimate at Hahn Hall by Charles Donelan

I

COURTESY UCSB ARTS & LECTURES

A FULL LIFE f you happen to have heard the Los Angeles Philharmonic play Felix Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto at the Hollywood Bowl this summer, then you already know all about Ray Chen. On that night, a giant image of this rising violin star flashed across the Jumbotron screens of an 18,000-seat natural amphitheater. But those who missed out are in luck because on Wednesday, October 9, the hero of the Hollywood Bowl comes to the Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall in the first of UCSB Arts & Lectures’ 2013-14 classical-music offerSTRING FELLOW: Ray Chen takes ings. The 17,700-seat reduchis virtuoso violin skills to the Music tion in the size of the venue Academy this week. will surely only benefit Chen, whose recitals have been universally praised ever since he began touring after consecutive wins in the prestigious Queen Elizabeth and Yehudi Menuhin competitions. Pianist Julio Elizalde will join Chen in a program that features works by Bach, Mozart, Prokofiev, and Sarasate. The handsome young world traveler has parlayed his technical mastery, athletic stage presence, and fluency in Italian into a sponsorship from Giorgio Armani and a blogging position with Vogue Italia. How trendy is he? When I spoke with Chen by phone from his home in Philadelphia last week, he was still raving (and blogging) about some of the brilliant meals he’d had recently in Los Angeles. But rest assured; his playing is at least as good as his taste in restaurants and just as stylish as one of his beautifully cut tuxedos.

You’re off the road for a moment. Do you think of Philadelphia as home now? I have a personal connection to Philly, and I love the U.S. generally. I’m still Australian, but I have permanent residency in this country.

What were you aiming for in bringing together these works? I wanted to showcase a varied program — baroque, classical, modern — but I didn’t choose anything just to fill a category. Even the Prokofiev is still pretty tonal. I’m trying to win people over with this. That’s why I love to do outreach. I’m doing master classes at local schools the day after the concert. And you are diversified, with your writing and other outlets. I believe a contemporary musician’s attitude has to be accessible. It’s important that musicians be perceived as leading full lives and as being well-rounded people. It’s the only way to not just maintain, but to grow the level of interest in our art. That’s why I’m such an advocate for bridging classical with other things. I think we need to share our lives more. Ray Chen performs at Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall on Wednesday, October 9, at 7 p.m. Call 893-3535 or visit artsandlectures .sa.ucsb.edu for tickets and info.

Which do you prefer, concertos or recitals? Well, both really, but what I like about recitals is that I get to choose the program. A lot of times with concertos, it’s more about what the orchestra needs to play. In a recital, there’s no compromise; it shows the personal side of the musician. It’s my show.

Did your mentor Aaron Rosand influence you in choosing a romantic style of playing? Even before studying with Aaron Rosand, I was already super into the romantic approach to the instrument. I know that could be a bad thing, but I felt that it worked for me. When I play the music of Sarasate, as I will in Santa Barbara, I think of Aaron Rosand. For Sarasate, his CD is the one. Sarasate is really his thing. I am more old-school-meets-new-school. The style I like is somewhere between Heifetz and Perlman.

To Derrick Curtis, there’s Felipe Castañeda shared the spotlight at no better reason to dance. Center Stage Theater. Yet the seasoned teacher and performer also feels strongly that the infectious joy of social dance warrants a performance. Fifteen years ago, Curtis helped launch BASSH, Santa Barbara’s social-dance showcase where dedicated amateur and professional dancers could show their stuff onstage. And if last weekend’s spirited show is any indication, social dance continues to thrive in our region. From the opening group work that wheeled through jazz, rumba, and hip-hop to the exuberant West African drumming and dancing of Panzumo Rhythm, Song, and Dance’s closing number, BASSH  featured 16 acts and more than 60 performers. Though the production has always centered around the social aspect of dance, what makes BASSH work now more than ever is the community that supports it, from sponsors and audience members to participants and a hardworking volunteer staff. After curtain call, Curtis called onto the stage two more women whose support made this year’s production possible: SBDA director Sheila Caldwell and Art Without Limits director Julie McLeod. Before they could set down their bouquets, Panzumo’s drummers struck up one last beat. ■ And this time, the whole house rose up to dance.

t 28 years old, Jesús Carmona is one of the youngest dancers yet to headline the Santa Barbara Flamenco Arts Festival. Flamenco, after all, is an art of passion and spirit — and it can take some time to develop. Apparently, Carmona’s had time enough. Last Saturday night at the Granada, the rising Spanish star made his striking U.S. debut. A former principal dancer with Ballet Nacional de España, Carmona has both the subtle, fluid articulation of a world-class contemporary dancer and the dramatic, explosive authority that flamenco requires. In Cuna Negra & Blanca, he uses a loose narrative structure to frame his performance.Yet such is his charisma and his virtuosity that that frame all but falls away. The show’s title translates to Black-and-White Crib, and over the course of the evening, Carmona danced a trajectory from darkness to light. He was joined by two very different and equally beautiful bailadoras: the petite, wonderfully nuanced mover Lucia Campillo, dressed in black lace, and the radiant, powerful Esther Esteban, clad entirely in white. In the show’s opening sequence, Carmona stood motionless downstage left as brothers José and Maka Ibañez cried into their mikes. The stage was dark, save for two shafts of dusty light descending to the floor. All eyes were on Carmona as he lifted one arm, circled a wrist, and wrapped his fingers around the rung of a chair. Then his feet began to move: an almost imperceptible shuffle that built to an urgent fusillade at its crescendo — and still his upper body was liquid calm. Even in Seville, where savvy flamenco audiences are hard to impress, Carmona has made a strong impression. Maybe it’s because of his sheer range of emotion, from the head-whipping, foot-stomping passion to the moments of soaring subtlety, like a tight whipping turn out of which he slows, rises, softens, and for one or two glorious beats hangs suspended before touching ■ down silently.

Asking her about the special nature of Lucent, she answered without hesitation. “After the first show, the response was amazing,” she said. She said she struck a common theme among the Dossier folk, which is a passionate connection to the people who dress up and come out for their performances. “We saw our first audience, and we knew something was about to happen,” she said. After several seasons at Coachella and Burning Man, the group took a residency at the Edison, a stunning alternative lounge space in the sub-basement of the Higgins Building in downtown L.A. The combination of Edison designer Andrew Meieran’s retrofuturistic fantasy space and Lucent Dossier’s particular brand of immersive performance turned out to be one of those rare, unforgettably perfect matches that make nightlife history. Lines formed around the block, and the international press coverage went through the roof. This was in 2010, and still today, what Dayna Riesgo keeps coming back to are her memories of the wonderful, interesting people who showed up.“I used to love checking out who was in the line,” she told me. “I was fascinated. They were showing up in these incredible outfits, fantastic handmade clothes and hats, makeup and wigs. They were like us, but we didn’t even know who they were.” She still likes the scene at the door. “We did a recent show at the Palace in downtown L.A.,” she recalled, “and I had to ask this woman about her gloves. They were unreal. It turned out everyone in the party she was with was in his or her fifties, and they were wearing some of the best costumes I’ve ever seen.” This core Lucent Dossier fan base is likely to be well represented at Lucidity, as the group’s events in Santa Ynez reach out to the same broad age range of deliriously costume-happy adults. That’s just one of the reasons why they are looking forward to making the scene in Santa Barbara. “We’ve been doing a lot more highprofile stuff lately,” said Rockwell, referring to the three years of big Grammy parties and two with the Emmys. “I guess we have been discovered by Hollywood.” But listening to Riesgo describe how they “tweak” their offerings for different situations, one hears the same pure heart going into the occasional bar mitzvah (yes, they’ve done them) as the most decadent of underground private parties. What brings it all together is a certain willingness to engage. As for Rockwell’s message to the people of Santa Barbara: “Come ready to play.”

magine going to the Arlington for a movie. You see beautiful people performing a series of brilliant, mysterious, and slightly absurd circus acts. There are dancers, intriguing character actors, aerialists, and fire performers. The fantastic soundtrack of exotic, futuristic original music sounds like it was beamed in from a parallel universe. Now imagine being in that movie, rather than just watching it, and you’ll begin to have some idea of what the Lucidity crew have planned for Friday, October 4. That’s when Lucidity at the Arlington: Rising Vibes for the Universe is set to touch down in downtown Santa Barbara. The event, which spawned out of the multiday Lucidity Festival held each spring at Live Oak Campground, is being led by Spencer Weiner and Jonah Haas, who have put together a night that will include the first downtown Santa Barbara appearance of the acclaimed psychedelic steampunk neo-circus known as the Lucent Dossier Experience. Long a favorite at Burning Man and likeminded events around the world, Lucent Dossier have in recent years come to represent an unprecedented level of crossover acceptance for what began as an underground phenomenon. Emerging from the desert parties of Moontribe, the Lightning in a Bottle events, and a game-changing residency at the Edison in downtown Los Angeles, the group has become the entertainment of choice for everything from Illuminate: Unicorn Meat, a giant warehouse rave that took place on the border of Brooklyn and Queens last weekend, to the Emmy Awards’ Governors Ball. Lucent producers Dream Rockwell and Dayna Riesgo travel the world creating dreamlike scenarios. Riesgo has described their aesthetic as “vaudeville meets the future dressed as a Victorian Mad Max warrior.” One entertainment reporter put it more bluntly after his initial encounter with the group at an event in Los Angeles, calling Lucent “Marie Antoinette gone wrong. Cirque Du Soleil on acid.” I spoke with both Dream Rockwell (from New York, where she was prepping for Unicorn Meat) and Dayna Riesgo (from Hollywood, where she was negotiating for a parking spot) last week, and I’m delighted to report that success has done nothing to tarnish the playful enthusiasm and go-with-the-flow attitude they bring to their art. Rockwell has been with the Experience from the very beginning, and her influence can be felt in every aspect of what

CARA ROBBINS

or anyone who’s seen Los Angeles art punks No Age do their thing, you know well and good that “quiet” is not in their vocabulary. The duo, made up of guitarist Randy Randall and drummer/vocalist Dean Spunt, are a strange form of spastic brilliance. Their songs are loud, brash, and often piled high with effects, yet their arrangements and vocals lean heavily toward the romantic. On Wednesday night, the pair found themselves sharing the wooden stage behind the Ojai Rancho Inn with fellow L.A. DIY-ers Lucky Dragons, whose dusk-time GET LUCKY: L.A. experimental artists set was a hypnotic mix of Lucky Dragons kept things mellow ambient sounds (courtesy and dreamy when they opened for of a homemade sound-wave No Age at the Ojai Rancho Inn. distortion device) and howdid-they-do-that awesomeness that seemed to pulse in the early fall air. Following the Dragons’ set, No Age plugged in for a performance that was tailor-made for its setting. With guitars turned down and drums played at a minimum, Spunt and Randall delivered gentle, almost soft renditions of crunchers like “Life Prowler” and “I Won’t Be Your Generator.” But while fitting for the space — and its neighborly noise limitations — one couldn’t help but wish the whole thing packed a bit more punch. Then, all of a sudden, as the clock struck 8:45, Spunt and Randall seemed to silently agree and (comparatively speaking) let ’er rip. What we finished on was a mini-set that snarled, gurgled, and fed back just enough to make an impact, and a night so intimate and bizarre that you couldn’t help but leave feeling like you’d stumbled upon something ■ extra special.

When I Say Ho … The Lumineers. At the Santa Barbara Bowl, Thursday, September 26. Reviewed by Rachel Cabakoff

Q

uirky might be the first word that comes to mind after The Lumineers’ performance last Thursday at the Santa Barbara Bowl. The band brought in a crowd of all ages to their sold-out show, creating a scene that looked a lot like hipster heaven. The evening started off with Denver’s Nathaniel Rateliff, who welcomed in the crowd with his soulful R&B sound. His set was followed by six-piece indie rock band Dr. Dog, which revved up the crowd with fan favorites like “That Old Black Hole” and “Lonesome.” At points, the crowd got so into it that one couldn’t help but wonder which of the night’s acts had drawn the larger crowd. Not long after, The Lumineers took the stage to show their stuff. Frontman Wesley Schultz began the show strumming on his banjo — and wearing his signature brown fedora — for the tune “Classy Girls.” Behind him hung a stage set filled with oversized chandeliers, which added a nice ambiance to the crisp evening. The trio played a variety of songs from their 2012 self-titled debut, as well as a cover of Bob Dylan’s “Subterranean Homesick Blues.” They sprinkled in new tunes, too, including a cutesy duet with cellist Neyla Pekarek titled “Falling In Love.” Still, it wasn’t ’til the opening chords of hit single “Ho Hey” that fans stood from their seats. Disappointingly, the band didn’t rework the track from its recorded counterpart; even Schultz’s “last one!” line was mimed in perfect time. Later, the band made their way out to the middle landing of the Bowl to play a few numbers, which left non-pit audience members elated. But at more than a few points during Thursday’s performance things started to feel scripted. (See the mid-song stop and mini-piano accompaniment on “Morning Song.”) Granted, The Lumineers are still a fairly new band, and what they lacked in ■ spontaneity they made up for with charm, spunk, and energy. october 3, 2013

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 (95 mins.; PG: mild rude humor)

Fans of the first Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs will find themselves a little forlorn in the middle of this sequel. If anything, the brilliant original, adapted from the irreverent children’s book, was an overdose of fun: a complicated story that mixed genuinely touching elements with genuinely absurd flourishes and was fleshed out on the screen like a crazy tapestry. There were jokes, sight gags, and beautiful squiggles in every scene. This version begins and ends with a nice re-envisioning of all that inventiveness, though the middle of the film is, sadly, a boring slog. This time out, Flint has been recruited by a Doctor Science–type character to come work on a giant campus that looks like a cross between Google and a Bullwinkle cartoon. It turns out that the machine Flint invented, which turned water into food in amok fashion, is now busy creating food monsters back home. When the gang goes to check out the supposed horrors, they get a lesson in human treachery instead. The story is sweet but not nearly as touching as the first outing, and with the exception of Steve the Monkey, it’s surprisingly uncomplicated by weirdo fun. Kids will like it, though it seems just a touch exploitative. Not making money off a runaway machine was the lesson Flint learned in the first film. Now the studio is doing it. (DJP) Fairview (2-D and 3-D)/ Fiesta 5 (2-D and 3-D)

Rush (123 mins.; R: sexual content, nudity, language, disturbing images, drug use)

During the many race scenes, which ought to be the most important cinematic moments in a film like this, the takes average two seconds long. I know because I counted them off. Such hyperkinetic editing is often a hallmark of bad directing (see: Michael Bay), but with someone as seasoned as Ron Howard at the helm, we want to give him the benefit of the doubt. He means this psychological movie not to come at you like a rush, ironically. Howard’s film, based in truth and told in flashback and flash-forward, is a compare-and-contrast exercise featuring two 1970s Formula One driver rivals, dishy James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and the calculating Austrian Niki Lauda, whom the great Daniel Brühl turns into a love/ hate object. We’re meant to not like either of them too much but know they represent opposing philosophies. Both cheat death, they admit, by racing around tracks, but Hunt believes in courting mortality; live fast, have fun, and leave a beautiful corpse. Lauda is harder to place, though; he has similar death wishes but keeps protesting that he’s working percentages. It’s the only job he’s good at. The best part of the narrative, which swings like a metro-

nome between the men, is the rich and strange hypocrisies. The worst part is how obvious it gets. Howard zooms in on a huge spider on the day of a tragic race; after sex, he cuts to engine pistons pumping. It courts selfparody, but it’s still guaranteed to please audiences. Rush is ultimately an accomplishment, but it’s also too jumpy; it’s hard to love a film when you keep getting thrown out of situations. The one exception to the rule is a scene where Lauda lyrically meets his wife and then drives. We’re along for that ride, but the rest just feels rushed. (DJP) Camino Real/Metro 4

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF OCTOBER  ARIES (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Are you good at haggling? Do you maybe even enjoy the challenge of negotiating for a better price, of angling for a fairer deal? The coming week will be a favorable time to make extensive use of this skill. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you will thrive on having friendly arguments with just about everyone, from your buddies to your significant other to your mommy to God Herself. Everywhere you go, I encourage you to engage in lively discussions as you hammer out compromises that will serve you well. Be cheerful and adaptable and forceful.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): In David Markson’s experimental novel Wittgenstein’s Mistress, the protagonist fantasizes about the winter she lived at the Louvre Museum in Paris. She says that to keep warm, she made big fires and burned some of the museum’s precious artifacts. I’m hoping you won’t do anything remotely resembling that mythic event in the coming week, Taurus. I understand that you may be going through a cold spell — a time when you’re longing for more heat and light. But I beg you not to sacrifice enduring beauty in order to ameliorate your temporary discomfort. This, too, shall pass.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): “Don’t say you want love,” writes San Francisco author Stephen Sparks. “Say you want the morning light through a paint-flecked window; say you want a gust of wind scraping leaves along the pavement and hills rolling toward the sea; say you want to notice, in a tree you walk past every day, the ruins of a nest exposed as the leaves fall away; a slow afternoon of conversation in a shadowy bar; the smell of bread baking.” That’s exactly the oracle I want to give you, Gemini. In my opinion, you can’t afford to be generic or blank in your requests for love. You must be highly specific. You’ve got to ask for the exact feelings and experiences that will Homework: Name 10 personal possessions that you’d put in a time capsule to be dug up by your descendants in 500 years. Testify at Freewillastrology.com.

boost the intensity of your lust for life. (Here’s Sparks’s Tumblr page: invisiblestories.tumblr.com.)

CANCER (June 21-July 22): “The world breaks everyone, and afterward, many are stronger in the broken places,” wrote Cancerian writer Ernest Hemingway. By my estimation, my fellow Crabs, we are now entering a phase of our astrological cycle when we can make dramatic progress in healing the broken places in ourselves. But even better than that: As we deal dynamically with the touchy issues that caused our wounds, we will become stronger than we were before we got broken.

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Let’s hope you have given deep thought to understanding who you are at this moment of your life. Let’s also hope that you have developed a clear vision of the person you would like to become in, say, three years. How do you feel about the gap between the current YOU and the future YOU? Does it oppress you? Does it motivate you? Maybe a little of both? I’ll offer you the perspective of actress Tracee Ellis Ross. “I am learning every day,” she told UPTOWN magazine,“to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me.”

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Do the words “purity” and “purify” have any useful purpose? Or have they been so twisted by religious fundamentalists and mocked by decadent cynics that they’re mostly just farcical? I propose that you take them seriously in the coming week. Give them your own spin. For instance, you could decide to purify yourself of petty attitudes and trivial desires that aren’t in alignment with your highest values. You might purify yourself of self-deceptions that have gotten you into trouble and purify yourself of resentments that have blocked your creative energy. At the very least, Virgo, cleanse your body with extra-healthy food, good sleep, massage, exercise, and sacred sex.

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): I periodically hike alone into the serene hills north of San Francisco and perform a set of my songs for the birds, insects, squirrels, and trees. Recently I discovered that British comedian Milton Jones tried a similar experiment. He did his stand-up act for a herd of cows on a farm in Hertfordshire. I can’t speak for Jones’s motivations, but one of the reasons I do my nature shows is because they bring out my wild, innocent, generous spirit. Now is a good time for you to do something similar for yourself, Libra. What adventures can you undertake that will fully activate your wild, innocent, generous spirit?

(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): In her book Teaching a Stone to Talk, Annie Dillard apologizes to God and Santa Claus and a nice but eccentric older woman named Miss White, whom she knew as a child. “I am sorry I ran from you,” she writes to them. “I am still running from that knowledge, that eye, that love from which there is no refuge. For you meant only love, and love, and I felt only fear, and pain.” Judging from your current astrological omens, Capricorn, I’d say that now would be a good time for you to do something similar: Take an inventory of the beauty and love and power you have sought to escape and may still be trying to avoid. You’re finally ready to stop running and embrace at least some of that good stuff.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Are you anxious and agitated, afraid that you’re careening out of control? Is there a flustered voice in your head moaning, “Stop the insanity!”? Well, relax, dear Scorpio. I promise you that you no longer have to worry about going cray-cray. Why? Because you have already gone cray-cray, my friend. That is correct. You slipped over the threshold a few days ago, and have been living in Bonkersville ever since. And since you are obviously still alive and functioning, I think it’s obvious that the danger has passed. Here’s the new truth: If you surrender to the uproar, if you let it teach you all it has to teach you, you will find a lively and intriguing kind of peace.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): To give you the oracle that best matches your current astrological omens, I’ve borrowed from “Sweetness,” a poem by Stephen Dunn. I urge you to memorize it or write it on a piece of paper that you will carry around with you everywhere you go. Say Dunn’s words as if they were your own: “Often a sweetness comes / as if on loan, stays just long enough // to make sense of what it means to be alive, / then returns to its dark / source. As for me, I don’t care // where it’s been, or what bitter road / it’s traveled / to come so far, to taste so good.”

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): The Dragon Lives Again is a 1977 film that tells the story of martial arts legend Bruce Lee fighting bad guys in the underworld. Among the villains he defeats are Dracula, James Bond, the Godfather, Clint Eastwood, and the Exorcist. I urge you to use this as inspiration, Aquarius. Create an imaginary movie in your mind’s eye. You’re the hero, of course. Give yourself a few superpowers and assemble a cast of scoundrels from your past — anyone who has done you wrong. Then watch the epic tale unfold as you do with them what Bruce Lee did to Dracula and company. Yes, it’s only pretend. But you may be surprised at how much this helps you put your past behind you. Think of it as a purgative meditation that will free you to move in the direction of the best possible future.

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): After studying the myths and stories of many cultures throughout history, Joseph Campbell arrived at a few conclusions about the nature of the human quest. Here’s one that’s apropos for you right now: “The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek.” He came up with several variations on this idea, including this one: “The very cave you are afraid to enter turns out to be the source of what you are looking for.” I urge you to consider making this your operative hypothesis for the coming weeks, Pisces.

Falcone Family Vineyards Paso Robles Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 Anyone wondering what all the fuss is about Paso Robles cabernet sauvignon — or even cab in general, as we Santa Barbarans tend to be more focused on Rhône and Burgundian varietals — will get a quick lesson in excellence with this recent release from the husband‑and‑wife team of John and Helen Falcone, longtime Santa Ynez Valley vintners who own a small vineyard on Paso’s hot eastside. The wine is a mix of heady (with licorice on the nose, chalky minerality in the mouth) and hedonistic (delicious dark cherry flavors!), all presented on an phenomenally smooth canvas. Their 2010 Mia’s Vineyard reserve release is also fantastic, but a bit more complicated and herbally enhanced, so maybe best for those already addicted to the wonders of well‑done cab and ready to pay a tad more.

It’s Tyme for

SUSHI

R

eader Ruben let me know that Sushi Tyme restaurant has opened at -C State Street in the Paseo Nuevo mall, replacing Sakura Express, which apparently closed a few weeks ago. I stopped by and spoke with husbandand-wife owners Giho and Cindy Yoo, who tell me that they are in the process of having a large wall menu created for the business and will continue to offer Sakura’s menu of items for two or three weeks until the new artwork is complete. They will have a grand opening to coincide with the launch of their new menu, which will include salmon from Scotland, tuna from India, and albacore from South America. Chef Giho Yoo says that he has been involved with sushi for more than 20 years, most recently working in Los Angeles and The Wynn Resort and Casino in Las Vegas. He was visiting the South Coast with his wife, and they both came to the conclusion that “Santa Barbara is paradise” and wanted to live here. He discovered that the owner of Sakura wanted to sell the business, so he bought it a month ago. Sushi Tyme is open every day 11 a.m. - 9 p.m. For more information, call 963-9955.

SUSHI TYME: Husband-and-wife owners Giho and Cindy Yoo will celebrate the grand opening of their new Sushi Tyme restaurant in Paseo Nuevo in a few weeks.

VILLA PIZZA TO OPEN DOWNTOWN: A sign

has appeared at  Anacapa Street that indicates the pending arrival of Villa Pizza, Wine & Beer. The official company name is Villa Winebar, LLC. The new business will be located in the retail space below Anacapa Villas, a few doors to the left of Arch Rock Fish restaurant.

HOUSTON, WE HAVE A PROPERTY: Reader PrimeTime tells me he is hearing that the Houston’s restaurant chain is looking at opening a restaurant — possibly under a different name — on Coast Village Road next to Jeannine’s. Houston’s has several locations under the Hillstone name. This is, of course, entirely rumor and speculation, which are two of The Restaurant Guy’s closest friends. When my wife lived in Santa Monica, we used to go to Hillstone for special occasions and usually ordered our favorite items on the menu: the Prime Rib or California Burger. SPEAKING OF RUMOR AND SPECULATION:

Reader Barbara tells me she heard that Carpinteria Fosters Freeze might become a new location for The Habit burger chain, founded in Goleta in 1969. As always, this rumor might be completely false or a brilliant forecast of future events. Your call. SEAGRASS MARKET MENU: Seagrass Restaurant

at  East Ortega Street will be offering a daily (Tue.Sun.) three-course market menu for $27.00 per person 5:30-6:30 and 8:00 p.m. to close. Their market menu is a fixed three-course, chef’s choice menu that rotates daily. MORE

DAILY GRIND UPDATE: I’m hearing that the second location of the Daily Grind, coming to the old Taco Bell at  De la Vina Street, is getting close to completion. THE FRENCH TABLE UPDATE: Reader Jonathan says that The French Table at  East Anapamu Street is changing ownership. He also mentioned that the staff said that the new owner is planning to keep everything the same. ISLA VISTA UPDATE: In early September, I wrote

that three restaurants were coming to Isla Vista. I knew the name of one of them, Blaze Pizza, but the others were somewhat of a mystery. I now know that the Plaza Lofts first floor (at  Embarcadero del Mar), currently home to Sorriso Italiano, will house two additional restaurants: Buddha Bowls and Best of China.

BLUE AGAVE UPDATE: This just in from reader PrimeTime: “It’s true Brad at Aldo’s has bought Blue Agave, and the process to change the ownership and liquor license has begun. An ABC alcohol change-ofownership sign is up.” LILLY’S UPDATE: In August I wrote that Santa Bar-

bara’s award-winning taco shop Lilly’s ( Chapala St.) is coming to  Storke Road in Goleta (formerly La Carreta), near Kmart. I stopped by to check it out and noticed that new location will be a big one. In addition to taking over the La Carreta spot, Lilly’s will be expanding into the space formerly occupied by two neighboring businesses.

Legals Administer of Estate NOTICE OF PETITION TO ADMINISTER ESTATE OF: ELIZABETH DOLAGHAN CASE NO: 1418903 To all heirs, beneficiaries, creditors, contingent creditors, and persons who may otherwise be interested in the will or estate, or both of ELIZABETH DOLAGHAN A PETITION FOR PROBATE: has been filed by: in the Superior Court of California, County of THE PETITION FOR PROBATE requests that be appointed as personal representative to administer the estate of the decedent. THE PETITION requests the decedent’s will and codcils, if any be admitted to probate. The will and any codils are available for examination in the file kept by the court. THE PETITION requests authority to administer the estate under the Independent Administration of Estates Act.

If the sale is set aside for any reason, the purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the deposit paid, plus interest. The purchaser shall have no further recourse against the beneficiary, the Trustor or the trustee. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO
