“This is easily my favorite time of year,” says Aly Comingore (far right), the guiding force behind our annual Music Issue. For 2013, Aly and intern Rachel Cabakoff scoured the net to hunt down Santa Barbara’s next great unknown. “After six years of covering music here, I thought I knew everyone and everything,” says Aly. “Boy, was I wrong.” Sites like ReverbNation and SoundCloud led Aly and Rachel to 2013 featured artists like Jay October and Swim Lessons, along with a wealth of new talent brewing just below the State Street circuit. It’s just one of the reasons she’s so proud of this year’s issue. “If you love music, there’s nothing better than introducing your friends to a new, rad band.” Learn about 12 starting on page 27.

Endorsements

T

his year, we faced the classic Goldilocks conundrum in deciding which candidates to endorse in the Santa Barbara City Council race; some were too hot, others too cold, and few just right. To an uncommon degree, however, they have all contributed to Santa Barbara’s public discourse. Ultimately, we opted for the candidates we believe are most committed to using all the tools available to promote the development of affordable housing and meaningful transportation alternatives. More than good intentions, however, we selected the candidates who bring the right mix of experience, knowledge, and stubborn creativity necessary to translate that vision into meaningful policy. Likewise, we selected

★ ★ ★

those candidates we deemed the least prone to hysteria and histrionics on the matters of homelessness and public safety. Also guiding our choice was the candidates’ awareness and attitude regarding some of the looming challenges now confronting City Hall. Two years ago, the city’s Redevelopment Agency — like all such agencies statewide — was abolished by state fiat. Whether right or wrong, that action has seriously hamstrung City Hall’s ability to support affordable housing projects, invest in the arts, take care of its parking lots, and solve the problem of $250 million in unfunded pension liabilities without vilifying the frontline city employees who do the people’s work at City Hall.

e enthusiastically endorse Mayor Helene Schneider to a second term. During the past two years, especially, Schneider has come into her own. She’s smart, open, and ubiquitous. And her grasp of detail is nothing less than exceptional. Throughout most of her term, City Hall has weathered the fiscal storm of the international recession. In that time, 80 positions were eliminated by attrition — at a savings of $8 million a year — but no employee was laid off. Four more cops were hired, and a new restorative policing program was hatched. After years of intense wrangling, a new General Plan and a plastic-bag ban were both unanimously approved. Under Schneider’s guidance the Rental Housing Mediation Task Force, which had been effectively slated for elimination, was saved, and the city increased its investment in the arts. When it appeared the state might force City Hall to sell off its downtown parking lots — as a consequence of the Redevelopment Agency’s elimination — Schneider led the Mayor Helene Schneider successful charge to save them.

Shame on Labor Union? Carpenters Accused of Playing Dirty, Stealing Information

A

BY T Y L E R H AY D E N

labor union that’s generated considerable attention over the “SHAME” banners it plants throughout Santa Barbara may have crossed a legal line it regularly toes. Two men believed to be with the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters — the Los Angeles–based union with 65,000 members that aggressively pickets developers, contractors, and anyone else it feels has wrongfully hired nonunion workers — are accused of breaking into the locked dumpster of an East Cota Street construction firm to steal client lists and other privileged material. The nighttime burglary of Frank Schipper Construction was witnessed by a nearby resident, who watched the men drive away in a car registered to the union. But due to a lack of additional info — including more detailed descriptions of the suspects and the actual value of what was taken — the police investigation stopped before it really began, which frustrates Schipper president Paul Wieckowski. “The union’s attitude is: ‘We’re going to do what we want to do, and you can’t stop us,’” said Wieckowski. “And the police are unwilling to do anything about it.” Up until the incident, Wieckowski and other contractors wondered how the union carpenters were able to pinpoint their client rosters. “I always thought there was a spy,” explained Wieckowski, who hires both union and nonunion subcontractors, depending on the size and scope of the work. “Whoever does the job well and for a good price,” said Wieckowski,“we want them.” 12

BUMP IN THE NIGHT

At around 10:30 p.m. on September 3, a man living in a condo above the Schipper office awoke to the sound of his dog barking. He went to his balcony and looked down to see two white males in their forties — one described as heavyset and wearing a dark ball cap with a red bill, the other with light, curly hair and wearing glasses — putting paperwork from the dumpster into a small white SUV. The witness headed downstairs to confront the men as they drove away, and he managed to type the car’s license plate on his iPhone. Police found it registered to a 2005 Ford owned by the Southwest Regional Council of Carpenters in Los Angeles and forwarded that evidence to detectives, but the case has since been deactivated.“If additional information on the case surfaces,” said SBPD spokesperson Sergeant Riley Harwood, “we’re always prepared to reopen it. … There are definitely suspicious circumstances present.” Wieckowski said police detectives advised him to speak with the District Attorney’s Office, but Deputy DA Brian Cota said that without anyone to prosecute, it’s difficult to build a case. The first step needs to be taken by the police department to identify possible suspects; otherwise, Cota suggested filing a complaint in smallclaims court. Instead, last week Wieckowski sent a letter to a number of his fellow contractors, warning them of the union’s unchecked “criminal activity.”

A man who identified himself as Joe answered the Santa Barbara line and declined to comment on the allegations. At the Los Angeles office, Justin Weidner issued a “no comment” response and hung up. Calls made to the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (UBC), of which the Southwest Council is an affiliate, went unreturned. This summer, the UBC put the Southwest Council under emergency supervision after charges of malpractice, intimidation, wrongful conduct, and financial irregularities surfaced. In a six-page fax sent July 19 to all of the Southwest Council’s 31 local chapters, a massive political shake-up was announced with the UBC chief, Douglas McCarron, removing his younger brother, Mike McCarron, from the head of the Southwest Council. The decision was reportedly fueled by familial bad blood and tension among union brass. Also this summer, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) launched an investigation into reports that union members had followed supervisors with a Phoenix drywall company to individual job sites, running red lights and weaving through traffic to keep pace. The NLRB eventually determined that the union was innocent, noting that the National Labor Relations Act allows such tactics so long as “[n]o one is injured, nothing was thrown, no one was prevented from going to work or leaving, and no vehicle was harmed or excluded from the premises.” NLRB representatives were unavailable to cont’d page 14  speak on that matter or any

Two men and a 6-year-old boy were hurt in a high-speed crash at the intersection of Arrellaga and De la Vina streets Monday afternoon (above) when 28-year-old Evan Githens blew a stop sign in a stolen truck as he fled from pursuing Sheriff’s deputies. Githens broadsided a passing Jeep that hit a Honda CRV, and he was arrested a few blocks away after he fled the mangled truck on foot. In the car with him was an adult female and two boys — the 6-year-old and his 4-year-old brother — she was babysitting. The woman was detained and interviewed and later released. The child and the drivers of the Jeep and CRV were taken from the scene on stretchers, but the extent of their injuries is unclear. Githens was charged with a slew of felonies and is being held in County Jail on $100,000 bail. Cayucos resident Jeremy Bordegaray, 29, was shot by a Santa Barbara Sheriff’s deputy Sunday evening during a violent and bizarre confrontation on Beach Club Road near Carpinteria. According to Sheriff’s officials, three deputies responded to a trespassing call in the neighborhood at around 7:45 p.m. and found Bordegaray lurking in an unoccupied home with a loaded handgun in his backpack. He was arrested, handcuffed, and put into the back seat of a patrol cruiser, but he managed to break the car’s plexiglass partition, crawl into the front seat, and start driving away. The deputies gave chase on foot with one of them firing on Bordegaray as he attempted to escape. Bordegaray, who has an extensive criminal history, remains in critical condition at Cottage Hospital and has been booked in absentia on a number of charges. The deputy was placed on administrative leave per departmental protocol, and an investigation into the shooting has been launched. Authorities on 10/3 released the name of the suspect who allegedly shot a Santa Barbara man in the chest in the 1100 block of Bregante Lane on November 25, 2012. Long Beach resident Johnnie Gray, 38, has been held since March in Long Beach for attempted murder and for allegedly selling, furnishing, and transporting drugs. Santa Barbara detectives obtained a $1 million warrant on Gray in March after identifying him, and he’s scheduled to be extradited to Santa Barbara in the coming weeks, police said. Gray, who is suspected to have ties to a Long Beach gang, was reportedly in the S.B. area at the time of the shooting because he and the victim were involved in a crack cocaine deal that went bad.

The University of California recently unveiled changes to its health insurance plans — including the elimination of Anthem plans — that will reduce UCSB employees’ options of getting treatment at Sansum Clinic and Cottage Hospital. Hundreds of UCSB faculty and staff gathered on campus last Thursday to voice their concern about the changes, railing against being left out of the negotiations and now being forced to decide on new NOT HAPPY: UCSB Faculty Association plans before the changes take effect in President Nelson Lichtenstein addresses the January. crowd at a UCSB Health Care Town Hall Forum. For the entire UC system, Anthem plans will no longer be available in 2014. To replace them, the university system will offer UC Care, a three-tiered system. UCSB employees are upset over the first tier, a $20 co-pay PPO plan that contracts primarily through UC medical centers, which UCSB doesn’t have. And the only medical facilities in the area that have agreed to accept Tier 1 so far are in Lompoc, Santa Maria, and Ventura. The second tier of UC Care — also a PPO plan — will work at Sansum and Cottage, but it will charge patients for 20 percent of their services (with a $5,000 cap). According to UCSB’s Human Resources director, Tricia Hiemstra, 750 UCSB employees are currently enrolled in Anthem plans. Speakers on Thursday said the Office of the President should have taken Santa Barbara’s medical provider landscape into account when making the changes. They said they were angry about the lack of a Tier 1 plan in the area and resented having to wait and see if negotiations with Sansum and Cottage bear any fruit. “If that’s the best the Office of the President can do right now, you’ve failed,” said Stuart Feinstein, a longtime molecular biology professor. “This is reneging on a responsibility. This is a completely unacceptable and unsatisfying situation.” Dwaine Duckett, the vice president of human resources for the university system’s Office of the President (UCOP), answered questions at the meeting, and said that the pending separation from Anthem is due to the company’s slated price increases, with plans scheduled to go up by $60 to $175 per month. Duckett noted that UCSB employees will still be able to be treated at Sansum and Cottage, but he acknowledged their strong — Lyz Hoffman frustration over losing that top-tier PPO option.

The Board of Supervisors unanimously approved a plan to provide Jalama Beach with affordable overnight lodging, including yurts — popular at Lake Cachuma — and cabins. The project was suggested in the wake of the demolition of the old, affordable Miramar Hotel and the in-limbo construction of the new, high-end Miramar Beach Resort; the county required its developer Rick Caruso to pay $1.395 million to create new low-cost beach accommodations. Caruso paid that fee last April, and the county has until April 2022 to use it. The yurts can sleep six people and will cost $150-$200 a night.

Legalizing Marijuana, Hemp Buddy Duzy Explains Ballot Initiative

Health Care Woes at UCSB

hough California was the first state to legalize medical marijuana with the passage of Proposition  in 1996, voters have had a harder time agreeing on whether recreational use of the drug should be allowed. In 2010, such a proposition was narrowly defeated at the polls, and in 2012 — when voters in Colorado and Washington legalized it — none of the six separate measures proposed by various factions of the Golden State’s marijuana movement could gather enough signatures to qualify for the ballot. California’s next chance will be November 2014, and the only proposed legislation currently moving toward that ballot is the California Cannabis Hemp Initiative, which must gather nearly 505,000 signatures by February 24, 2014. Shouldering a lot of that effort is Berton “Buddy” Duzy, a Simi Valley contractor who has been involved with marijuana reform his entire adult life due to his longtime friendship with author/activist Jack Herer. Last week, he spoke about his legislation with The Santa Barbara Independent, and what follows is an edited version of the conversation.

THIS BUD’S FOR US: Berton “Buddy” Duzy is one of the folks behind the California Cannabis Hemp Initiative, which needs to collect about 505,000 signatures by February 24, 2014, to qualify for the November 2014 ballot.

Why didn’t the legislation in 2010 pass? It didn’t pass because it was very poorly written and put together really quickly without much thought. What they ended up doing was allowing each city and county to allow for the sale of marijuana, and if you look at California politically in terms of the red-blue map, most counties are red, and most likely they wouldn’t have allowed it. That would have forced sales into Bay Area counties and Los Angeles. The rest of California would have been forced into a quasiblack market and have to drive to Oakland to buy as much pot as they could. Even some of the activists were opposed to that initiative because it was so poorly done. Did the recent comments from the Obama administration about leaving alone the states who legalize marijuana give you any extra hope? It’s not the first time that the federal government said they were gonna leave pot alone. They said they were gonna leave medical patients alone, too, when Obama was first elected, but they’ve been very aggressive with their enforcement. So I’m not 100 percent on board. I’ll believe it when I see it. Hemp seems to be as much a part of your bill as recreational marijuana, right? Industrial hemp is the central part of our bill. We believe that we should have been using hemp for paper a long time ago instead of cutting down all the trees, which is what we have been doing for the last 60 years. So it legalizes hemp for farming, and it also uses an excise tax we collect from recreational pot sales to fund a startup of these

industries. We intend to make California the first major state in the union to create a domestic infrastructure for the utilization of industrial hemp. And we do deal with the recreational and medical side of cannabis, too. It’s a comprehensive piece of legislation. How does your initiative deal with driving while stoned? What we did was eliminate the testing for metabolized THC, the type of testing where you can be dirty two months later. Instead, there is a test that is available for active THC, which means you actually smoked some pot and are actually high. We also demand that the state adopt existing scientifically based performance standards, or that they can do their own scientifically based performance standards. That’s the same thing they do with alcohol. They test drivers at certain levels and find the level where impairment exists. Do you expect any opposition from the cannabis-collective side? It will benefit the collectives because it takes local governments off their backs, and it eliminates the need to collect tax from medical pot. It does a lot to help them, and we expect them to be on board. So what are the chances it will pass in 2014? I think the chances are really good. The volunteers are all very excited and motivated, so we’re expecting it to pass.

other because of the government shutdown. Harwood said while officers are periodically called out to Santa Barbara construction sites to kick union members off private properties — where they show up to recruit, demand information of site bosses, and look for union defectors — the SBPD’s interactions with the carpenters have been minimal. When the union decides to picket locations with its “SHAME” banners, Harwood went on, representatives notify police beforehand and appear well versed on the laws governing public access and sidewalk clearance. Wieckowski, on the other hand, described the union reps as tattooed “thugs” who sometimes aggressively refuse to leave construction zones. Most recently, they’ve shown up at Schipper’s projects at the Santa Barbara Zoo and the Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse. Wieckowski is quick to point out that other labor unions in town are much more professional in their competitive bidding tactics and that he supports the right of free speech, but he said the carpenters seem more bent on bullying the competition than facilitating fair and quality work.“They want to put these small companies out of business,” he claimed.“It’s not like they’re trying to better themselves. They’re desperate.”

IT IS WHAT IT IS

Detractors like Wieckowski often note that the protesters are not union members, but placeholders hired for $25 a day to wordlessly pass out fliers that feature a rat nibbling on an American flag below the screaming headline: “SHAME ON [person/company] For Desecration of the American Way of Life.” Indeed, while pleasant when asked for details on their mission, the sign holders appear to have little to no knowledge of the issue. The signs often claim there is a “labor dispute,” but NLRB records do not show any formal

grievances with the Southwest Council and the folks targeted. The scattershot approach the union uses when choosing whom to banner seems to be based solely on lost contract bids rather than gripes over substandard wages or benefits. The Southwest Council has deployed its banners since at least 2004 and has been known to stake out locations for months on end, as when it descended on Goleta Hospital Foundation trustees last year after Cottage Health System’s general contractor went nonunion for a major remodel.“[The union’s] angle is pretty despicable,” said board chair Jeffrey Bermant at the time, explaining he and the rest of the trustees weren’t involved in choosing subcontractors. “We have absolutely no say in how the hospital is built. … They seem pretty removed from reality.” Right now, banners sit in front of the Charles Schwab office on Chapala Street and what will be the new Fresh Market location (formerly Scolari’s) on Milpas Street. Both businesses hired Thomas Drywall instead of going through the union. A sign is also in front of Alma del Pueblo’s sales office, calling out Marge Cafarelli and her Urban Developments for hiring Triton Construction to plaster the mixed-use project being built on Chapala Street. Cafarelli said while union members have stopped “busting their way” through the construction site — she had to call the police on them more than once — they’ve hired sign holders to stake out a stretch of sidewalk on State Street right next to the Arlington Theatre. Commiserating with other banner targets, Cafarelli said while she doesn’t like how the union and its members conduct themselves, she’s resigned to the Southwest Council’s presence in Santa Barbara.“There’s nothing you can do, so you really can’t get too worked up about it,” she said. “At least they spelled my name right.”

Alzheimer’s Facility by Auto Mall?

A new facility to serve people with Alzheimer’s disease might now be built on a vacant lot on South Hope Avenue that’s zoned for auto dealerships thanks to a key procedural vote by the Santa Barbara City Council this week. With no opposition — but considerable misgivings expressed by Mayor Helene Schneider — the council voted to amend the specific plan governing the 25-acre swatch of land known as Rancho Arroyo to allow the development of an Alzheimer’s care facility or rental housing on a triangular lot — 1.76 acres big — that’s constrained by seismic faults, setback requirements, and a creek bed. Matthew Graham of Graham Chevrolet showed up — accompanied at the council podium by his wife and infant child — and objected that residents of the new facility would be subjected to loud noises and bright lights from all the dealerships at night. Graham said that trucks bearing the cars of tourists who lost their keys arrive at all hours of the night and that, invariably, the car alarms of such cars are activated upon delivery. “It’s just so random,” he said. “You have no idea when it’s going to be.” City Hall created the auto mall in that neighborhood in the mid-1980s, and administrators have been loath to surrender the sales-tax potential posed by a potential car lot on the site. But because the lot is only half the size of viable car lots in the area — and has environmental constraints — there have been no takers in the auto sales industry for more than 25 years. Councilmember Cathy Murillo noted that the nearby Mel Clayton dealership has been vacant so long that weeds reclaimed the parking lot, indicating a shift in car-buying habits. She also waxed wistful about the miniature-golf course that once was on the site, suggesting such a course would be good for at-risk teens. “I am a great miniature-golf-course person,” she added. “I’m a great putter.” Mayor Schneider went along only reluctantly, recalling her great disappointment at having voted to allow a housing development on land zoned for manufacturing on East Montecito. She said she had been told it would provide housing affordable to nonprofitagency employees. After the initial developer went bankrupt, a new developer built the condos, but at market rates and not for nonprofit workers. The mayor opened her remarks making a plea for a new green dealership. “Elon Musk, if you’re listening,” she — Nick Welsh said, “we love Tesla.”

The county’s Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services department will receive hundreds of thousands of dollars of federal grant money through July 2016 to pay for treatment programs for veterans involved in the justice system. The money — not to exceed $325,000 a year — will expand services provided through the Veterans Treatment Court in Santa Maria. Under the program, vets who have been charged with misdemeanors and select felonies — and also suffer from PTSD, brain injuries, or substance abuse — but then spend 12-18 months receiving outpatient treatment and detox services can then have their charges reduced or dismissed. The grant will help an extra 25 vets per year. To spread the message of healthy eating and adequate exercise to low-income residents, the county’s Public Health Department will receive $865,833 a year in federal funding through 2016. The money comes from the state’s Network for a Healthy California program, which is paid for by the USDA. Public Health will work with community organizations to get the word out. The grant money is about $81,000 more than the previous agree-

ment; the extra funds will allow a new health educator to reach 800 additional residents.

ENVIRONMENT The Environmental Defense Center (EDC) on 10/4 filed an appeal of the Santa Barbara County Planning Commission’s 3-2 approval of the Santa Maria Energy Oil Drilling and Production Plan, said Nathan Alley, an attorney for the EDC. Located on a property near Orcutt, the project would see the construction of 110 new oil wells — there are already 26 pilot wells at the site — as well as 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, which will emit greenhouse gases. The Planning Commission approved the project with a 29 percent emissions threshold, releasing about 67,000 metric tons of greenhouse gases per year. The EDC has argued that the project could technically be held to zero emissions. The appeal will be heard by the Board of Supervisors at a later date. Doug Anthony retired as the deputy director of the county Planning and Development Department’s Energy and Minerals Division earlier this year, but his retirement will be short-lived.

New County Chief

COU RTESY

The Board of Supervisors approved hiring new CEO Mona Miyasato (pictured) on Tuesday with a 5-0 vote, ending a months-long search after the supes decided not to renew current CEO Chandra Wallar’s contract in April. Miyasato, who starts December 9, comes from Marin County, where she served as chief assistant county administrator since 2008. Before that, she held multiple positions with the City of Santa Monica, including that of deputy city manager. “I am honored to be selected,” Miyasato said. “Santa Barbara is a world-class county, with engaged residents, dedicated employees, and a board that has made tough choices over the last several years to better position the organization toward a stable and thriving future.” During Tuesday’s meeting, the supervisors thanked Wallar for her three years of service, especially given the tough financial landscape she navigated during her time on the South Coast. Her contract wasn’t renewed after the board discovered she had been seeking the same job in Orange County, which she ultimately declined because it was below her desired salary. In an email to The Santa Barbara Independent on Tuesday, Wallar said she had no firm plans for the immediate future “other than a short vacation with family. … I am hoping some exciting opportunity comes my way.” Miyasato grew up in the Los Angeles area and earned a bachelor’s degree in political science and economics from UC Berkeley and a master’s in public policy from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. She originally wanted to be a journalist, she said, but felt that government service would be a better way to “effect change in whatever way I could.” Nels Johnson, a longtime county reporter for the Marin Independent Journal, praised Miyasato’s work, saying “she is among the very best” and that “a big loss for Marin is Santa Barbara’s gain.” Major issues facing Marin County during Miyasato’s tenure, Johnson said, included high-density, low-income housing and pensions. The Bay Area county is smaller than Santa Barbara (828 square miles compared to 3,789) with fewer residents (252,400 vs. 423,895), but Miyasato said the areas share a lot of the same values, including environmental activism, agricultural heritage, public safety, and financial stability. Miyasato’s contract will run through December 2017. She will be paid $230,000 a year — $2,000 less than Wallar — and will receive $5,000 a year in retirement contributions, $600 a month for a car allowance (plus mileage reimbursement), and $20,000 for relocation expenses. She said she hadn’t yet decided where she will live but is looking forward to carrying on her Marin tradition of taking long walks with her husband and dog. “I’m thrilled to be starting there,” she said. “I’m really looking forward to it. There’s a great energetic vibe and history.” Assistant CEO Terri Nisich will serve as the interim chief until Miyasato starts in December. Miyasato will first meet with the board — Lyz Hoffman November 5.

Anthony’s expertise, officials said, will be integral in handling the EDC’s appeal of the Santa Maria Energy oil drilling project, as well as the upcoming review of the 4H Shell Mound project. As expected, the many sea-otter support groups vying to be part of the federal case that seeks to keep the controversial “no otter zone” intact south of Point Conception were granted “intervenor” status by the court last week. Both the Santa Barbara–based EDC and The Otter Project were granted that status because they had brought the lawsuit that forced the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service to move forward with declaring the quarter-century-old otter translocation program a failure and ending it for good at the end of last year. The other groups, Friends of the Sea Otter, the Humane Society of the United States, Defenders of Wildlife, Center for Biological Diversity, and Los Angeles Waterkeeper, were allowed to join the case by the judge’s discretion.

EDUCATION This Monday at UCSB, education experts, faculty, students, and others concerned about making college affordable and accessible presented several solutions — both short- and long-term and fiscal and non-fiscal — to Assemblymember Das Williams and members of the Legislature sitting on the California Assembly Higher Education Committee. The three-hour hearing included testimony from several experts from the California Student Aid Commission, the Legislative Analyst’s Office, the Institution for College Access and Success, and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education. Simplifying the process for obtaining financial aid, improving textbook rental options, and creating online materials and lectures were presented as possible solutions to ensure California sees a growing educated populace.

Of the governor’s 2013-2014 budget, $1.25 billion pays for professional development, instructional materials, and technology to implement the new standards. He also approved bills that mandate installing carbon monoxide devices in classrooms, issuing local education bonds, adopting K-8 instructional material to complement the new standards, and ensuring that social science curriculum incorporates histories of César Chávez, the farm labor movement, and Filipino Americans. Close to 100 enthusiastic parents, students, and faculty flooded Tuesday’s Santa Barbara Unified School District meeting to urge the board to renew the charter of the Santa Barbara Charter School (SBCS). Ten public commenters said SBCS’s close-knit environment — the K-6 school holds just under 300 students, 14 teachers, eight aides, two administrators, and several involved parents — has allowed both highachieving and special-needs students to thrive for 20 years. SBCS directors Dave Weisman and Bev Abrams addressed recent concerns of the board, including diversity, transparency, test scores, process of admitting new students, Common Core State Standards, and general progression since the last renewal in 2008. “Really, this process is an opportunity to make something better,” Board President Monique Limón said. The board will see a report at its October 22 meeting before voting on the renewal on November 12.

Ballooning Jailhouse Rock

The proposed North County Jail could expand to include additional beds and space for reentry programs if the county is awarded approximately $38.9 million in state funds. The Board of Supervisors voted Tuesday to allow Sheriff Bill Brown to submit an application for the award — recipients will be announced in January — but stipulated that amendments need to be made to the jail contract’s language and that discussions still need to be had on how to finance the new facility. The proposed jail, to be located near Santa Maria and projected to be up and running by 2018, could increase its number of beds with the money from SB 1022, which will put bond sales toward jails’ increased bed space, treatment programs, and reentry services meant to help reduce recidivism rates. With the $38.9 million, Brown said, he would add a 52,208-square-foot wing (that would serve as a multipurpose room for beds and treatment services) as well as an additional 228 beds to the proposed 376 beds; there would be 128 beds for inmates in treatment and two 50-bed units for those in transitional housing. The additional room, Brown said, would not “just add space to warehouse people” but would “turn lives around.” In making his case to apply for the award, Brown argued that the $80 million already set aside for construction is now insufficient because of the County Jail’s increased inmate population brought on by the new California law — AB 109 — that shifted responsibility for certain types of inmates from the state to the counties. Since its passage in 2011, Brown said, the jail’s population has risen by 11 percent, with half the inmates there as a result of AB 109. The county would have to match 10 percent of the award, and supervisors reluctantly said $3.9 million in strategic reserves could cover that cost until another funding source is found. Receiving the award would up the expected annual operating costs for both jails — around $17 million — by $310,700 a year, an amount that the board said it’s unsure how to pay for. Brown said additional AB 109 — Lyz Hoffman funding might help make up the difference.

Shutdown Cramps S.B. Style Washington Gridlock Affecting Public and Private Sectors

I

BY K E L S E Y B R U G G E R

t’s been more than a week since the U.S. government froze during a high-stakes squabble between Republican lawmakers and the president over federal spending and the implementation of Obamacare, and as of press time, Congressmember Lois Capps’s latest motion marked the ninth time policymakers have attempted to alleviate the standstill. On Tuesday, Capps led a measure to give the House of Representatives an opportunity to vote on the Senate spending bill, which would have funded the federal government for the time being — until November 15 — at the negotiated rate of $986 billion and given both houses more time to reach a long-term budget compromise. “The shutdown could have ended right here,” Capps said on the House floor after the motion died. “Instead we find ourselves here, picking and choosing, and waiting for them to decide whose lucky day it is to be funded by the Republican leadership.” Last week, Capps conducted a conference call — briefly postponed by the Capitol Hill shooting — to discuss tensions in Washington and its impact on her constituents on the Central Coast. Capps said the “misguided” and “unnecessary” decision by the “irresponsible Tea Party wing” of the Republicans in the House has seriously impacted many residents — not just government employees — throughout Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo counties. “We’re really playing with fire,” Capps said. Employees affected in her district include those who work at the Carrizo Plain National Monument, the Goodwin Education Center near Painted Rock, Camp Roberts Historical Museum, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Los Padres National Forest, the California National Guard, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Diablo Canyon Power Plant, and Vandenberg Air Force Base, as well as countless small businesses and those working in the private sector. At Vandenberg Air Force Base, 816 of the nearly 1,100 civilian employees with the th Space Wing who were furloughed last week have returned to work. According to the U.S. Air Force website, civilians are expected to be paid retroactively; military personnel were not furloughed. “Unfortunately, the return of our civilians does not necessarily mean we are back to business as usual,” Col. Keith Balts said. “Without an approved budget, we are limited in how we spend our resources. And depending on how long this budget uncertainty will last, we may have to take additional steps with respect to our personnel or operations here on base.”

The private sector has experienced setbacks, as well. Santa Barbara Adventure Company Director Michael Cohen said he had to downsize operations dramatically because one-third of his outdoor business involves kayak trips and sea-cave tours of the Channel Islands National Park, which is currently closed to the public. Cohen added he had to cancel school field trips and corporate team-building outings — planned months in advance by customers often traveling long distances — through October 10, costing his company an estimated $33,000. He also had to scale down from 15 employees to five for the time being. “I certainly hope it changes,” Cohen said.“My two sons, who are 5 and 7, are able to work out differences when they have a disagreement. … Congressional leaders are hurting small business and the public.” Santa Barbara Adventure Company, he went on, is currently offering a “shutdown special”: 50 percent off for all government employees joining an existing, nonislands trip, and 25 percent off gift certificates and vouchers for future island trips if visitors purchase them before the shutdown ends. Capps is also part of efforts to ensure members of Congress are not paid during the shutdown. Further, she added that uncertainty at the national level sparked constituents — including potential start-up companies on the Central Coast — to ask: Can we rely on the federal government? “That cripples us tremendously,” Capps said, adding she plans to work hard to instill faith back into the federal government. “I want that consistency, to be a reliable partner with the private sector.”

Dry with a Chance of Drier With Lake Levels Dropping, Should Water Agencies Take Cuts?

A

BY M E L I N D A B U R N S

parade of sunny days may be nice for beachgoing and biking, but months of cloudless weather can bring back not-so-nice memories of water rationing. Everyone’s waiting for the first drop of significant rain, even as the experts are predicting another dry winter. Lake Cachuma, the main water source for 200,000 people living on the South Coast, is more than half empty. Two years of little rain and runoff have left a giant bathtub ring around its steep shores. Since water last spilled in 2011 over the Bradbury Dam, which forms Lake Cachuma on the Santa Ynez River, the level of the reservoir has dropped 44 feet. Every month without rain, it drops another three feet. County records show that Lake Cachuma has slipped below the halfway mark only twice before, during the drought of 19871991 and during most of 2004. As of this week, the reservoir contains 90,000 acre feet of water, down from 196,000 acre feet at full capacity. “This is absolutely not looking good,” said Tom Mosby, general manager of the Montecito Water District, which is facing big cutbacks in its supply from Jameson Lake, a districtowned reservoir upstream from Lake Cachuma.“The community is thirsty. If it doesn’t rain, come February we will be in trouble.” Unfortunately, the smart money is on a dry winter. According to Bill Patzert, a climatologist with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Southern California is headed into another year of below-average rainfall, part of a 20-year cycle that began in 1998, bringing drier winters and colder summers.“There’s definitely no El Niño going to gallop over the horizon and save you,” Patzert said, referring to the climatic conditions in the Pacific Ocean that favor biblical rains. “A dry decade every once in a while is good, because it makes you rethink your water usage and your future.”

LONE HOLDOUT

Yet, in a break with past practice, the five water agencies that depend on Lake Cachuma — Carpinteria, Goleta, Montecito, Santa Barbara, and Santa Ynez — are not taking across-the-board cutbacks in deliveries from the reservoir. Four of them favor such a measure, but the Goleta Water District, the largest user of Lake Cachuma water, is opposed, saying it’s too soon. And the other agencies are not about to accept cuts if Goleta won’t go along. “Goleta has invested a lot of time and resources in really securing our diverse water portfolio so we can weather situations like this,” explained Kirsten McLaughlin, Goleta Water District’s supply and conservation manager.“Taking an automatic reduction in lake supplies at this point is beyond premature for us.” But Kevin Walsh, a trustee of the Santa Ynez River Water Conservation District, Improvement District No. , which serves Santa Ynez, Los Olivos, Ballard, and Solvang, would like to avoid

a repeat of the severe water rationing that he was forced to impose during the 1987-1991 drought, when he worked for the Goleta Water District. Today, Walsh favors an immediate 20 percent cutback in all Lake Cachuma deliveries in order to stretch the reservoir supplies. “It would send a unified signal to the public,” Walsh said. “The pain from smaller reductions early on is far, far less than the pain and trauma of larger, more drastic reductions later.” Back in 1989, with Lake Cachuma well below the halfway mark, all five agencies voluntarily took a 20 percent cut in water deliveries from the reservoir. In 1990, they agreed to cut back by as much as 45 percent. But by then, the lake had shrunk to a level so low that the agencies were forced to install a barge to pump water through a floating pipe and up into the tunnel that delivers water to the South Coast. At the current rate of the drawdown at Lake Cachuma — which includes daily deliveries to the South Coast, daily releases for endangered steelhead, sporadic releases for downstream ranchers, and evaporation loss — the reservoir’s water level could drop below the tunnel by the end of next year if the dry weather continues. “We don’t want to have to pump water out of a mud hole,” Walsh said, recalling the summer of 1990, when it seemed the reservoir might go dry. “That really was no fun.”

TRUE NEED?

On Friday, October 11, the five water agencies will meet at the Cachuma Operation and Maintenance Board offices to start discussing how to deploy the pipe and the barge in case of a third consecutive dry year. There is nothing in their contracts with the Bureau of Reclamation that requires the agencies to take cutbacks from Lake Cachuma during droughts, but according to a Bureau environmental report for the renewal of those contracts in 1995, the long-term safe yield of the lake is “based on the acceptance of a 20 percent shortage in total Cachuma Project water deliveries in any single dry year” whenever the lake drops to half-empty. In 2004, when the lake dipped below that mark, the agencies agreed to reduce their deliveries by 20 percent, though it soon rained and no reductions were needed. Today, in blocking an allencompassing agreement to cut back, Goleta water managers say they have to keep their customers’ pocketbooks in mind. The lake is their cheapest water supply. Goleta would have to order more state water from the California Aqueduct — an expensive proposition — to make up for any reductions from Lake Cachuma, McLaughlin said. Besides, Goletans are already the most frugal water users on the South Coast, said Lauren Hanson, the Goleta Water District director who serves as president of the Cachuma board. According to the county Water Agency, the residential water use in Goleta averages 66 gallons per person per day, compared to 84

gallons in Carpinteria, 86 gallons in Santa Barbara, and — with large estates and ranches driving up the average — 290 gallons in Montecito and 331 gallons in and around Santa Ynez.“The Goleta Water District serves a community that began conserving in the 1990s during those difficult drought years and never stopped,” Hanson said. In addition to water from Lake Cachuma, Goleta and other South Coast agencies can draw supplies from underground water basins. And since the mid-1990s, they all have access to state aqueduct water, though it too is subject to cutbacks during dry periods. Due to the drought-like conditions, the state Department of Water Resources this year will deliver only 35 percent of the water that county voters agreed to pay for back in 1991 during the five-year drought. Last year, the department delivered 65 percent of entitlements. Charles Hamilton, general manager of the Carpinteria Valley Water District, said Carpinteria is ready for a prolonged drought because it can draw on its large underground water basin and supplies of state water banked in other reservoirs. Hamilton said he’d be willing to go along with a 20 percent cut in Lake Cachuma deliveries now, but can see Goleta’s point of view.“I didn’t press the issue,” he said.“You wouldn’t do it unless everybody did it. But it’s something that may very well be prudent six months from now.” Montecito Water District’s Mosby thinks some of the agencies have lost their institutional memory of just how bad a drought can get in Southern California. “Nobody’s issued any type of drought or water shortage alert,” he said. “If we didn’t have state water today, we would have been meeting months ago.” Montecito is using state water to help make up for the dropping levels at Jameson Reservoir, but Mosby is worried that the state will cut allocations further if the dry weather continues.“The State Water Project has been our savior, and thank God we have it,” Mosby said.“But next year, what is [the Department of Water Resources] going to do to us?” In Santa Barbara — where it rained less than 9 inches last season, or half the historical average — the city has enough well, state, and Lake Cachuma water to get through a third dry year without imposing rationing, said Rebecca Bjork, city water resources manager. And although the Lake Cachuma agencies can’t agree on blanket reductions, the city has decided to carry over 20 percent of this year’s Lake Cachuma supplies to help offset next year’s demand. “We’re very conservative in our water-supply planning,” Bjork said. “I know people are concerned because it’s dry and they’re not hearing a drought message. But if we ask too frequently, people will become less responsive. We want to ask them when we really need it.” Special from Mission and State; read more at missionandstate.org. october 10, 2013

In , Henry H. Tai set out from his home village in Jiangsu Province for a ,-mile trek through war-torn China. He walked and hitched rides, slept along roadsides, and dodged check-points manned by Japanese soldiers who had invaded China. It was a month and a half

later when he reached Chongqing, China’s interim capital during its war with Japan. His sole purpose: to go to college. This yearning for learning dimmed only when Alzheimer’s began to consume his mind and, later, his body. Tai died in his sleep on Aug. , . He was . Today UCSB will dedicate the Henry H. Tai East Asian Collection, which he headed for  years until retiring in , and to acknowledge an endowment fund his children have set up to support his legacy. Tai’s life stories, however, spanned wars and cultures, and they were the stories of China and America in the last century. He was born on April , , in Tai Village, the ancestral home in Wujin, a town that’s  miles west of Shanghai. He was the eldest of the village head and designated to be the family scholar. But his studies were disrupted, first by Japan’s invasion of China in , later by the civil war between Chinese Nationalists and Communists. In , he graduated from the School of Journalism at National Chengchi University in Nanjing and boarded one of the last ships to leave for Taiwan as the Communists declared victory. In Taiwan, he worked as a newspaper journalist, first at Zhonghua Daily and then moving to the Central Daily News as its international news editor. He married Yu-Ching Chiu, also a Wujin native, and they had four children. In , they made a decision that would change the course of their lives: Tai set out alone for the U.S. He entered Tennessee’s Vanderbilt University to study library science and became a university librarian at Penn State at Slippery Rock in September . But he continued to work on his thesis on weekends and received his MA that December. In , Tai took a job with the State University of N.Y. at Binghamton, and his family joined him from Taiwan. In , he became the first head librarian for what was called the Oriental Collection (now East Asian Collection) at UCSB. After retiring in , he turned full attention to helping Chinese students and immigrants in Santa Barbara. In , he spearheaded and formed the S.B. Chinese American Association, serving as its first chair and editor-in-chief of its newsletter. Many honored him by referring

to him as “Dai lao,” or “Elder Tai.” Tai is survived by two sisters, a brother and a daughter in China; three daughters, a son and their spouses, eight grandchildren and two greatgrandchildren in the U.S.

When Bad Dogs Do Good Things

WEIRD-ASS SYMMETRY: Talk may be cheap, but silence is really expensive. I’m referring to the utter void in any communication at any level between the United States — a k a “the Great Satan” — and Iran — a k a “the Axis of Evil” — since November 4, 1979. That’s the starting date of the Iranian Hostage Crisis, in which Iranian students stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran and held 52 Americans captive for 444 days. Since then, we’ve gone through six presidents and 34 Super Bowls. That’s a very long time to stew and simmer. Two weeks ago, that silence was broken. President Barack Obama busted his now famous “reach out and touch somebody” move on Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani — light-years more moderate than his infamous predecessor — then in New York as part of a whirlwind United Nations charm offensive. Given how many itchy trigger fingers occupy Rouhani’s part of the world, this simple, though admittedly limited, act of sanity should have garnered far more attention than it received. I mention all this because Iranian writer and journalist Hooman Majd will be speaking at Santa Barbara City College this Thursday afternoon (2:30 in Room A in the East Campus Administration Building) laying out a cautious, guarded case for real optimism. Rouhani ran for office as a moderate and reformer; his overtures to the United Nations and willingness to deal with the United States over Iran’s nuclear power program, Majd said, “suggests he means

it.” Mostly Majd, speaking at the invitation of SBCC Professor Manou Eskandari-Qajar, said he hopes to dispel some powerful “preconceptions” people have about Iran. First, he said, it’s not anything like the absolute dictatorship of North Korea. Though autocratic and repressive, Iran has elections. And within the Iranian media — admittedly very constricted — he noted there’s genuine debate on some issues, like how Iran should respond to what’s happening in Syria. Not all Iranians wake up in the morning raring to attack the United States, Majd stressed, though they live with a keen appreciation that the United States could — and might — do just that to them.While Majd did not dismiss Iran’s previous president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, as an outright “whack job,” he acknowledged that Ahmadinejad — a screaming anti-Semite and Holocaust denier — reinforced and confirmed all the worst fears anyone could have about Iran. He noted that the candidate closest to Ahmadinejad in the most recent presidential elections came in a distant third. Majd said it was unrealistic to expect Iran to surrender outright on the issue of nuclear power. “It’s a matter of national pride,” he said. “If France gets 60 percent of its energy from nuclear energy, then why can’t Iran?” Sanctions have crippled the country’s economy, and the more oil Iran can sell on the international market, he said, the better. Majd, who grew up outside of Iran but remains very connected (he’s related by marriage to former president Khatani), suggested Iran would accept

far more stringent and frequent inspections of its nuclear facilities and would reduce the number of centrifuges involved. “There is a deal to be made,” he stressed. I know all this sounds hopelessly Kumbaya. But the opportunities presented by the brief phone call between Rouhani and Obama — legitimately historic — should not be squandered. In a striking coincidence, the day before Majd spoke at SBCC, Westmont College sponsored a talk at the Coral Casino by former secretary of state Henry Kissinger, who helped precipitate the Iranian Hostage Crisis in the first place. I pretend no fairness where Kissinger is concerned; he’s one of the great villains of all time. No doubt Henry’s the screaming genius everyone says he is when it comes to international affairs. But the trajectory of Kissinger’s career demonstrates mostly that you can get away with murder so long as you’re on the winning side. It’s become trite, I recognize, to call Kissinger a war criminal. But let’s just say if all the blood on his hands was water, we’d never have to worry about drought again. Kissinger — then serving under Richard Nixon — designated the shah of Iran (who’d been reinstated to the Peacock Throne in 1953 thanks to a military coup, Operation Ajax, orchestrated by the CIA) as the U.S. military proxy in the Middle East. Under Nixon and Kissinger, the U.S. sold the shah as much weaponry as Iran’s vast oil wealth could pay for, and they turned a blind eye to the shah’s increasing reliance on torture and repres-

sion as part of his march toward “modernization.” If the shah wanted to spend $100 million on a birthday bash celebrating 2,500 years of monarchy, what was a little excess among friends? In January 1979, the shah was forced into exile by a revolution that included not just the religious extremists but also many secular, educated, and “modernized” Iranians. By the fall, the shah — sick with cancer — wanted sanctuary in the United States. President Jimmy Carter wisely resisted. If the Great Satan accepted the shah, then wanted in his own country for prosecution, Carter knew the shit would hit the fan and there’d be no getting the toothpaste back in the tube. The shah could just as easily play tennis with rich people in Mexico, Carter argued, as he could with the one-percenters in Malibu. Kissinger thought otherwise. How would other dictators be willing to do the United States’ bidding if we turned our back on the shah in his hour of need? It was a matter of national honor. Kissinger and his patron David Rockefeller leaned hard on Carter to admit the shah. At the time, Carter had a major nuclear weapons treaty — SALT II — he was desperate to pass. It was far from certain whether he had the votes. If Kissinger opposed it, Carter’s treaty would be sunk. Carter did the math and admitted the shah on October 22. Thirteen days later, the world blew up. The rest, as they say, is history. The intervening silence has been anything but golden. Good thing talk is cheap. We’ve got so little to lose.

Grateful to Casa Esperanza

I

n concern over the negative opinions I have heard about Casa Esperanza, I would like to express my thankfulness for the services they provided for me while I resided there. I am a 2013 graduate of the Casa Esperanza Culinary Arts Training Program. After being homeless for over 12 years, I have been given the skills and confidence I needed to move on to being a productive person in our community. I give kudos to my instructor, Executive Chef Augusto Caudillo, for the essential qualifications that he taught me to advance in this field. I also thank the staff — Reyolodo Angulo, S.B. for their support.

n a couple of Santa Barbara Independent news articles on the coming City Council elections [“The Mayor’s Massive Flex,” 8/8/13, independent.com/cityracesfundraising; “Dissecting Campaign Cash,” 10/3/13, independent.com/ dissectingcampaigncash], candidate Lesley Wiscomb is mentioned as having garnered support from opponents of the high-density housing “smart growth” agenda, permitting an implication that she is a one-trick pony marching in lockstep with anti-housing advocates. Hogwash! Who the hell else are those who are skeptical of our risky-assumption housing schemes going to support, the true-belief ideologues candidates who will embrace just about anything that promises “affordable housing” miracles? I first met Lesley Wiscomb only recently, and without discussing any specific issues, the impression that came immediately to mind was: This is exactly the kind of candidate we dream of trying to attract to run for local office. I honestly don’t know whether her attitudes on specific issues square with mine; it suddenly didn’t matter. I do know that she will assess issues rationally and compassionately, with a quick intelligence and a broad, analytical, and open mind. What more could we ask? To not elect someone like this when we are lucky enough to have them come forward would be a travesty! We, as voters, are often told we get what we deserve. Here, at last, is a golden opportunity to elect someone who stands out, perhaps even beyond our deserving. Let’s grab it. — Joe Rution, S.B.

Subsidy Subsided

O

nce, Santa Barbara was the model city for a clean environment — with expanded bike paths and electric buses, plus a few free charging stations for electric vehicles (EVs). But within the past few months, the city has eliminated the free outlets and is now charging a fee for their use, plus the usual parking fees. On the other hand, the City of Santa Monica welcomes electric vehicles by providing 40 free charging stations, with 80 more in the works, and also allows free street parking for all EVs. I’m pissed because 90 percent of my driving is in a street-legal, glorified golf cart that I’d park in the library’s parking lot with its two free EV plug-ins. (No more!) Seems that Santa Monica rewards her citizens’ efforts to clean their environment while the City of Santa Bar— Bud Bottoms, S.B. bara punishes!

Feral, Not Fertile

O

ctober 16 is National Feral Cat Day — a day to think about the outdoor cats that exist in every community. They are the same species as domestic cats but are not socialized to humans and can’t be adopted. Virtually 100 percent of feral cats brought to shelters or pounds are killed there. Trap-Neuter-Return for feral cats is a win for the cats and their human neighbors. Catalyst for Cats uses TrapNeuter-Return to make feral cats healthier and end the breeding cycle, which means no more kittens. It also ends the cats’ yowling, fighting, spraying, and roaming, all of these mating behaviors that stop once a cat is neutered. Outdoor cats have been part of our landscape for thousands of years.

When Voting Is Illegal usual. Whenever he sniffs the ugly scent of rank injustice, he lets loose on his Santa Barbara TV talk show. “This will happen here!” Ernie warned after an L.A. Superior Court judge cancelled Palmdale’s November 5 election. Judge Mark V. Mooney slammed the windblown high-desert town, calling its at-large system of voting unconstitutional because it makes it virtually impossible for minority City Council candidates to get elected. He nixed the November election and banned another until the city installs district-by-district votes. Palmdale, its population 69 percent Latino or black, has elected exactly one Latino and no blacks since it became a city in 1962. Odd, huh? Forty percent of its people of voting age are Latino, and 17 percent are black. But why should Santa Barbara, so proud of its Hispanic heritage — Old Spanish Days and all that — also be cruisin’ for a bruisin’ in court? After all, the Fiesta City, with an estimated Latino population of at least 35 percent, does elect Spanish-surname City Council candidates — about once a decade. Let’s see, Gil Garcia joined the City Council in 1991 and served 10 years, and Cathy Murillo won a seat in 2011. In July, the judge ruled the Palmdale system unconstitutional, but the city chose to ignore the decision and went right ahead with at-

hybrid district system with the mayor running at large and all voters getting a shot. As fair as this might seem, I don’t see it happening anytime soon — unless some out-oftown judge bangs his or her gavel. And so far, I don’t know of anyone running to the Courthouse to file suit. The California Voting Rights Act bans atlarge elections aimed at watering down voting power of minorities. About 20 cities, school districts, and other agencies have been sued, and most ended up abolishing the at-large route, according to the L.A. Times. If Ernie is right, could Santa Barbara be the next one in court? NOT CITY OWNED: There seems to be some confusion in the minds of some about who will own the hilltop Clark property, Bellosguardo, now that the late Huguette Clark’s $300 million estate has been settled by negotiation. The City of Santa Barbara will not own it, although the mayor gets to nominate seven people for the board of directors. It will be owned by a New York nonprofit run by a board of 10 members. The other three will be nominated by the following: one by Clark’s longtime Santa Barbara attorney, James Hurley; one by Clark’s distant relatives; and one by the Corcoran Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. The New York attorney general will have to approve the directors. — Barney Brantingham

ince launching our annual music issue back in 2007, we’ve come to equate autumn with aural surprises. s. And this year is no exception. In the following pages, you’ll find a small wealth alth of new faces, all of which are showing some serious chops — and a whole ole lot of promise — in and outside of the South Coast music scene. We’re calling them the Class of , and this issue their big post-graduation debut. The roster is as diverse as ever, too: There are singer/songwriters, instrumental rock acts, killer emcees, and plenty of new releases to keep your musicthirsting palette quenched throughh the winter season. We’ve also gott the scoop on this year’s Downtownn Sound Battle of the Bands champs, Thee Reignsmen, who scored the honorable le title of Santa Barbara’s Best New Bandd last Friday night. Happy reading — and nd listening!

SANTA BARBARA’S BEST NEW ARTISTS

MPS REIGNING CHA

THE REIGNSMEN

We knew The Reignsmen had the advantage ntage early on. Before last week’s Downtown Sound ound Battle of the Bands even started, the Santa Barbara quartet had made their presence sence known, clinching both the audience votee and the judges’ approval in the weeklong online vote-off that led up to Friday’s live show. Onstage at SOhO, the band lived up to its web presence, too, unleashing a furious and anthem-filled mini set filled with in-your-face deliveries, grinding guitar work, whip-like drumming, and a punk-rock ethos that somehow managed to be both hard-hitting and utterly danceable. Formed in 2011, The Reignsmen include bassist/vocalist Tommy Trujillo, lead guitarist/vocalist Daniel Vasquez, rhythm guitarist/vocalist Matt Thompson, and drummer Matthew Drake. The band’s modus operandi is simple: “We are not a

studio band,” their Facebook page brazenly proclaims, and if you’ve caught them live, you understand why. Onstage, The Reignsmen exude energy first and foremost. Sure, the guitar tones are a little muddy, but that’s kind of the point. Taking cues from the anthem-sized harmonies and triumphant lyricism of bands like Mumford & Sons and Kings of Leon, The Reignsmen inject their brand of folk rock with a hard-drinking, hard-partying swagger that’s helped them find a happy home in the bars and clubs of lower State Street. And with song titles like “Forever Faded,” who can argue?

As for the recordings, well, they’re not too shabby either. Though Th ough the band has yet to release a proper EP, their SoundCloud page boasts two solid tracks: “Faded” and the psychinspired “Thief In The Night.” Both are swinging, guitar-heavy affairs that speak to The Reignsmen’s brazen stage set. Sonically speaking, they both fall somewhere in between The Hold Steady’s brand of elevated bar rock and the new-school rockabilly of Social Distortion, with the reckless spirit of The Black Lips thrown in for good measure. “[It’s about] raw passion and catchy melodies,” Trujillo and Vasquez say of The Reignsmen’s sound.“And rock ’n’ roll, baby.” Listen online at soundcloud.com/the-reignsmen. — AC

of touring alongside Andrew McMahon (Jack’s Mannequin, Something Corporate), Wanberg’s brother-in-law and mentor, who also helped produce the album. Next up, Erland takes to the outdoor stage at next weekend’s New Noise Block Party with Haim, Cayucas, and fellow Santa Barbarans FMLYBND. And after that, Erland hopes, the long-awaited record deal.“We’ve come a long way independently, and I think we’re ready to find the right team to help us move forward,” he said last week via email. As the band approaches the close of their biggest year yet, Wanberg recounts more than a few near-misses, including one gnarly onstage sound snafu and a tourending whiskey shot that almost felled him. “With no trash can in sight, I had no choice but to find a corner in the shared green room to de-whiskify myself,” he recounted. “I had to perform the show with a trash can off stage left. Luckily, I made it through okay.” Still, when asked to sum up 2013 in brief, Wanberg barely hesitates: “It was the best year ever.” Listen online at erlandmusic.net. — AC

THINGS BRIGHT YOUNG

THE BLUES AND GREYS

You know what they say about the best-laid plans, and so does Lindsey Waldon. The NorCal native — and longtime Santa Barbara songbird — had invested no shortage of time into her solo project, Little Indian, when she decided to move back home to Murietta late last year.“I was lost,” she recalled.“I was playing the same venues over and over, and playing with great people, but I wasn’t going anywhere.” Not long after moving home, though, Waldon got the phone call most young songwriters dream of. In her final months in S.B., she had met up with songwriters Thom Flowers (Bad Astronaut) and Jonathan Miller (The Little Heroes) to record vocals on some tracks in their Goleta studio. A few months later, the trio’s songs had made their way into the hands of some publishing houses. Not long after, MTV and Subaru came calling, and Waldon was packing her bags and heading back down south. “We kind of did things backwards,” she explained. “I was brought in by Tom and Jonathan as the talent, but I ended up contributing to a lot of the songs, and that first session kicked off a special little friendship and partnership between the three of us.” Since then, The Blues and Greys have recruited drummer Austin Beede, bassist Michael Million, and keyboard player Zachary Wallace for the live band, and recorded a debut EP, Bright Lights, which drops next week. Anchored by Waldon’s rich, warm vocals and

CAT SHOW

It seems somehow fitting that Erland’s pre-show ritual involves evoking the ghosts of musicians past. On tour and at home, the band has made a tradition out of warming up to the tune of “This Train Is Bound for Glory,” a time-honored gospel number made famous by Woody Guthrie. Like Guthrie, Erland’s music is delivered straight from the gut; the band’s crowdfunded debut, On Our Side, is filled with the kind of heart-on-sleeve lyricism and road-weary stories that made albums like Blonde on Blonde and Born to Run American classics. Born out of frontman Erland Wanberg’s solo singer/ songwriter roots, Erland the band includes drummer Nate Keezer, keyboardist Marko Srdanov, and bassist Mike Mooneyham. Together, the foursome has elevated Wanberg’s dusty jams to sweeping, romantic affairs, complete with pedal steel, shuffling drums, and soaring guitar lines that flirt with a subtle country twang. In the nine months since On Our Side’s release, Erland has given due credence to its wandering-man tales, too: The band recently wrapped up a lengthy bout

anthemic lyrics, the EP thoughtfully melds vibrant poprock arrangements with something a little darker and dustier. Take “Lost Lines,” a somber, jazz-inspired ballad that calls to mind indie powerhouses like Sharon Van Etten and White Hinterland, or “New Shores,” a galloping folk number that incorporates hand claps, reverberating floor toms, and meticulously layered harmonies that beg to be cranked from the car speakers. It’s a bold new step and a much bigger sound for Waldon, who up until now has been happy to go it alone. “I’ve never fronted a band before,” she said, “but the dynamic is so amazing between the three of us. It’s really exciting, but it’s also really scary and nerve-wracking. Truthfully, I’m scared shitless.” Listen online at thebluesandgreys.virb.com. — AC

JAY OCTOBER

Say what you will about the Santa Barbara hip-hop scene — Jay October is forcing folks to think again. Born and raised in Freeport, Bahamas, Jay came stateside on a college basketball scholarship in 2006. The game took him to Virginia, then San Diego, then Missouri, where he picked up the mike by way of a friend. “I’m a very competitive person, and I met this guy who rapped, so I started making beats for him,” Jay recalled, “but when he’d leave, I’d start rapping. He told me I sounded like Big Daddy Kane and all these old-school rappers, so I took it as a challenge to get better, and I developed this love for it. It reminded me of the same feeling I used to get when I played basketball. You get in the zone, and you just space out.” When school and basketball ended, Jay decided California was his next stop, and he set his sights on Santa Barbara. “It was just like home. It’s a different breeze here,” he said. That was in 2011. Nowadays, the 25-year-old rapper has posted up in a studio at Haley Ashbury Rehearsals, where he’s putting the finishing touches on his next (seventh) mixtape, Even/Uneven, slated to drop at the end of the month. “It’s a reference to my two sides,” he said. “Sometimes I’m mellow, and sometimes I’m up here.” Depending on his mood, Jay says, his music preferences fluctuate between everything from Juicy J to Katy Perry.“She’s from here, right?” he laughs. But he’s also indebted to the greats; Nas, Nelly, Biggie, Tupac — even Elton John makes the list of folks Jay dreams of collaborating with. He’s a fan of big personalities and performers that make you pay attention. And listening to Jay flow, you can’t help but take notice. His beats are catchy, his lyrics from the heart, and his delivery, well, it’s about as spitfire furious as they come. Subjects range from women to poverty to politics (his “Suits’ Truth Series” is an intense exercise in lost-youth poetry), and samples ping-pong between 8-bit Nintendo noise and vintage tracks, like Nipsey Russell’s “What Would I Do If I Could Feel.” As for the future, Jay sees big things in store for Santa Barbara’s hiphop scene, and he’s more than happy to carry the torch. “It definitely needs to grow, and I want to be one of those people who bring Santa Barbara hip-hop to the forefront,” he said. “There’s so much richness here — it has to blow up, and when it does, it’s going to be insane.” Listen online at jayoctober.com. — AC

THE ALUMNI ASSOCIATION CATCHING UP WITH OUR MUSIC ISSUE GRADS I

t’s been six whole years since we launched our inaugural Santa Barbara Music Issue back in 2007, and boy has it been a wild ride. And while the excitement over this year’s crop of new talent has us buzzing, it recently dawned on us that it might be time to take a look back. So allow us for a moment to get all nostalgic and celebrate just some of the  talent we’ve had the pleasure of hearing before the rest of the world caught on. Reminiscing on that first year — and its contest-free kickoff party — we recall hosting Isla Vista locs Rebelution. The barely legal reggae rockers put on a high-energy show atop our makeshift stage at De la Guerra Plaza and have since gone on to become some of the best-selling modern reggae artists of the past five years. Also on the bill and adorning the pages of that lowly first issue was Kyle Nicolaides, then a pint-sized 16-year-old with a rock ’n’ roll snarl that greatly belied his age. In the years between, the young Nicolaides changed outfits many times over, but always made sure to stay true to his hard-rocking roots; he’s now fronting garage-rock trio Beware of Darkness and touring the world alongside bands like The Smashing Pumpkins, Andrew W.K., and Stone Temple Pilots. And that’s just for starters. Over the course of the past half-decade, these pages have sung the praises of a then barely known Gardens & Villa, who have gone on to sign with indie label heavyweight Secretly Canadian, tour with The Shins, and score the mother of all California concert slots: a coveted spot at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. In more recent years, we’ve witnessed Dante Elephante take their surfpop sound to the next level — and pick up a solid chunk of press and gigs in the process. We’ve also watched as Lompocians Saint Anne’s Place became the go-to blues rockers of Santa Barbara proper, and then launched their first official tour through the Midwest. Looking toward the 2013 installment, we’re already banking on more than a few of our featured acts hitting it big. But more than that, we’re downright giddy with excitement at the leaps and bounds taken by the S.B. community in the last six years. Santa Barbara’s music scene may be small, insulated, and desperately in need of some more venues, but goddamn it if it doesn’t have heart — not to mention a crazy wealth of talent. And as for the Music Issue, well, we’re just happy to have watched it all shake down. — AC CO UR TE SY

Pirate Comedy

There is a pirate posse coming to town. Unlike Jack Sparrow and his misfit renegades, however, this band of rogues uses the power of the pen to disarm rather than drunken swordplay. They’re called the Story Pirates, and they kick off UCSB’s Arts & Lectures Family Fun series. The group offers a blend of education and theater as improvisational actors, comedians, and musicians create funny-bone-tickling skits and musicals from stories written by kids from around the nation. Performances have been touted as a “Monty Python meets Schoolhouse Rock!” experience. For an hour prior to the main event, there will be food, face painting, and balloons to get the little ones in a festive, fun mood. Story Pirates will be in town Sunday, October 20, 3 p.m., at UCSB’s Campbell Hall. Tickets: $15 (general), $10 kids.

t is not often that the pruning of a tree garners much attention, let alone the kind of publicity that accompanied the recent trimming that Santa Barbara City workers gave to an old tree in Parking Lot  (located at the corner of State and Gutierrez streets). It was the fact of its age and history that triggered the press releases and media alert. Known alternately as the Franceschi Flame Tree or the Sexton Flame Tree, it is a very old specimen of a rare hybrid that was growing in the former site of one of Franceschi’s nurseries. Francesco Franceschi was a nurseryman and entrepreneur who spent about two decades at the turn of the 20th century in Santa Barbara but forever altered its (and that of much of Southern California’s) landscape by introducing hundreds of new plants to California. Among these new plants were many now-common landscape and food crops including rockrose and grape ivy as well as zucchini. He and his pals, including Joseph Sexton, Kinton Stevens, and others, believed that if they grew plants from other parts of the world, the species would eventually become “acclimatized” and thrive here. The underlying science was faulty, but the benign climate that they were experimenting in meant that quite often, they were successful in their endeavor to establish them here. Sexton was no slouch as a plantsman; among his commercial endeavors was the growing of pampas grass for the decorative trade, establishing a seed-and-flower shop downtown. He introduced several varieties of cherimoya and avocado, as well as developed and improved a variety of walnut. He is also credited with creating the flame tree in question. It was made by crossing two spe-

cies of lovely trees native to different regions of Australia, B. acerifolius and B. populneus. Taxonomists have given it the official name of B. × roseus, and it displays a hybrid vigor by topping out at 70 feet in height. It also sports very bright red flowers similar to its B. acerifolius parent and narrow leaves similar to its B. populneus parent. Because it is monoecious, meaning each tree is both male and female, and there are so few in existence, it remains a rarity. Efforts have been made to replicate the cross, but younger specimens are likely the result of vegetative propagation. Cuttings of the original trees (there is another handsome specimen at Sexton’s old home in Goleta) are somewhat difficult to root, but it has been done. The tree in Parking Lot  has suffered the ravages of time and the circumstance of being surrounded by asphalt now. It has become weak and diseased. Cuttings were taken in an effort to keep its legacy alive, and vigorous pruning has been done in hopes of coaxing new life out of the healthy parts of the tree. It will be wonderful to pause under its new canopy and remember the fathers of horticulture in our area, including both Sexton and Franceschi. — Virginia Hayes

BY THE NUMBERS The estimated number of fans who showed up at JFK airport in New York when the Beatles arrived in the U.S. Their live performance two days later on the Ed Sullivan Show was seen by roughly 73 million viewers.

Shopping for Stun Guns

was 12 years old, riding home from school on an L.A. city bus, when I noticed the middle-aged man staring at me. When I got off the bus, he did, too. As I walked, he followed 30 feet behind me. When I turned a corner, he turned, too. I picked up my pace. So did he. I didn’t know what he wanted. But I knew, like an animal knows it’s being hunted, that I was in danger. Unarmed in an era before cell phones, I considered my options. Break into a run, try to beat him to my house, lock the door, and call the police? No — he’d know where I lived. Bolt to a stranger’s front door and start banging, hoping someone was home? Dive through the hedges up ahead and hide? Or start screaming “HELP!” and crying like the little girl I was trying really hard not to be? When I think back on that day, I get angry. What enrages me most is that I can’t even remember how I made it home safely. All I remember is being terrified, humiliated, certain that I couldn’t overpower him, uncertain if I could outsmart him — and filled with a resentment that’s never really gone away. It’s been a long time since I’ve felt threatened by a middle-aged man. But last week, I was invited to a party billed as “a girls’ night that could save your life.” It was a casual sales presentation for Damsel in Defense personal protection products — think Pampered Chef but with pink weapons that pack a wallop: the Tiny Takedown stun gun. The Pouch by Starshine O’ Pepper spray. And a very pretty, palm-sized, keychain-ready martial arts weapon used to “jab soft tissue or break bones.” email: starshine@roshell.com The tools are supposed make women feel safer walking through the world — or at least through a dark parking lot late at night. But to learn about them is to acknowledge all the infuriating ways we’re vulnerable to attack. The sprays promise to incapacitate even drunk or drugged-out assailants and will stain a bad guy’s face with UV die so cops can identify him for up to a week. But you shouldn’t use them in close quarters, like in an elevator or during a car-jacking — and as Kathy, our Damsel distributor, reminded us, “We don’t get to dictate the terms of our attack.” For up-close encounters, you need a stun gun, which requires direct skin contact with your enemy and comes with a wrist strap attached to a disable pin so he can’t grab your weapon and use it against you. “It’s all less than lethal,” Kathy said. “We don’t want you to kill anyone; we don’t want you to go to jail. We just want them to release you.” You don’t need a license to own this stuff, but I’m not convinced I want it. Would I have felt safer as a 12-year-old with 4.5 million volts in my backpack? Maybe. Would I have been safer? Hard to say. More than 600 women are sexually assaulted every day in the U.S. And Kathy said her product parties often become confessionals with guests sharing personal stories of domestic abuse and random assaults. All of this does little to allay my anger. I’m pissed off that when I’m hiking and pass a guy on the trail who appears to be meditating, I have to yank out my iPod earbuds and check back over my shoulder for several uneasy minutes. I’m frustrated that the things I say to comfort myself — my neighborhood is safe, I’m smart, my dog would bark, I’m tall, I’m loud, I’m not afraid — are nonsense. But I didn’t buy a weapon at the party that night, for several reasons. The good reason: I’m afraid my kids would mess with it. The bad reason: I don’t like to think about needing one. The real reason: I may not be packing any personal protection in my purse, but I’m carrying some anger with me everywhere I go. And the only thing worse than an angry woman is an angry woman who’s armed.

Quieting the Limbic Lizard Sports Psychologist Steve Smith Says Let the Robot Take Over

W

by John Zant

Monday night, he certainly was not fretting about his failure to lay down a bunt. It freed him to swing away, and on a 2-2 pitch from Atlanta’s David Carpenter, he smacked a two-run homer that put the Dodgers in the National League Championship Series. Sports psychologist Steve Smith would say that Uribe let his robot do the job. His robot? That’s what Smith calls the cerebral cortex, the part of the human brain that provides a calming focus in situations fraught with anxiety.“The robot is logical. The robot plans. The robot understands. The robot stays cool,” Smith said last week in a presentation at Westmont College.“The robot tells the limbic lizard to be quiet.” The limbic lizard? That’s what Smith calls the limbic system, a primitive part of the brain that unleashes emotions. “It overreacts to everything,” he said.“It’s the first thing that happens when you have a sensation of discomfort. The limbic lizard will freak out, and you can’t stop it.” Smith has been busy counseling athletes in the greater Santa Barbara community. The Harvard-trained psychologist joined the faculty at UCSB in 2004 and has set up a private practice, the Sport Psychology and Research Center. He was a consulting psychologist for UCSB’s Intercollegiate Athletics Department and has continued to work with the baseball team. “He’s got good information,” Gaucho coach Andrew Checketts said. “He talks straight and keeps it simple.” As a young coach, Checketts welcomes the relatively new SHIFTING GEARS: Harvard-trained sports psychologist Steve Smith field of sports psychology into his program.“People look began his career working with children but switched to athletes due for any competitive advantage,” he said.“The mental side to his own experience as a competitive cyclist. is what separates all the players who are big and quick and throw hard.

Smith puts little stock in confidence, terming it cheap and artificial.“Confidence and anxiety are both predicting the future,” he said. “Too much confidence, and you get sloppy.” Whether one’s job is to run fast or hit a baseball, Smith emphasized, the best thing an athlete can do is to let his or her robot do the job.

Monday night — one of the most replayed hits, and another swing that hardly anybody noticed. Schumaker, the starting center fielder throughout the division series against the Braves, singled in the fourth inning on a drive hit so hard that it tore the glove off Atlanta first baseman Freddie Freeman. In the eighth inning, Schumaker followed Uribe to the plate and flied out while everybody was still celebrating Uribe’s big home run.

Santa Barbara Beer & Wine Festival: Designed for seri-

ous connoisseurs, featuring an intimate lineup of five brewers and five wineries, this first-time festival goes down this Sunday, October 13, noon-4 p.m., at the Casa de la Guerra, with benefits going straight to the S.B. School of Squash. Co-organizer Zach Rosen, who was the youngest Certified Cicerone ever when he achieved that beer sommelier degree in 2010, hopes to break from the “overindulgent nature” of most beer festivals, so he’s blending in some live art, as well.“The hope is to mesh the beer, wine, and art subcultures into an environment that will highlight the creative communities blossoming in our area,” said Rosen.

Captain Fatty’s Coming: “The free-beer market is booming,” jokes Preston Angell of Goleta’s new Captain Fatty’s Craft Brewery, which has been pouring free tastes of early batches at events like Figueroa Mountain’s FigtoberFests. That’ll end soon, as they’ll have their licenses by the end of October, which will open the way for tastings. Angell, a Westmont biology grad, was brought in by longtime home-brewers John Wadell and Bryan Anderson to round out their business.“I’m Fatty,” admits the thin Anderson.“John’s the Captain.” Though still experimenting, they’ve developed a few key recipes, from a Vortex IPA to Parcel , a honey pale ale that sources honey and citrus from Hollister Ranch. Just like winemakers controlling how their grapes grow, the Captain Fatty’s team is working with the California Malting Company to discuss how to grow and prepare their grains. They’ve also got a line on hops grown in Carpinteria. “Once we get bottling,” said Anderson, who expects that

to be in about a year,“people will be able to take home a true bottle from Santa Barbara.” (captainfattys.com) BiN 2860’s Take-Home Brews: Though located in the heart of wine country, the Fess Parker family-owned BiN  is staking a claim on craft brews, with nearly 200 specially selected options for sale at the bottle shop.

Figueroa Mountain’s Holiday Plans:

Coming off the heels of two wild “FigtoberFest” weekends at the Funk Zone brewpub and the original headquarters in Buellton, Figueroa Mountain continues going strong with a wide selection of seasonal brews, including the Munich-style dunkel, Oktoberfest lager, and bock made for the parties, as well as the recently released Big Cone Black Ale and Magpie Baltic Porter. For those seeking rarity, however, hold out for the thirdanniversary ale, which is aging in Cutler bourbon barrels and should be out by Thanksgiving, or a tad longer until Christmastime, when they’ll release a Magpie Porter blended with Rusack Winery petite sirah that’s aging in Sea Smoke pinot noir barrels.

Then there’s the Prime Meridian Ale, a dry-hopped Belgian brown that Thompson says has a very distinct lemon and mango character. ( N.

Tom and Vicki Dolan Lifts Old Emilio’s to New Heights

T

by George Yatchisin oma sets its tone immediately, and not just from the warm welcome from the staff, led by owners Tom and Vicki Dolan, or from the glimmering room, a casually elegant touch of the Mediterranean. It does so with the simplest and cleverest of opening bites — you can’t really call them amuse-bouches as that would be too pretentious — blue-cheese-stuffed green olives, flash-fried after a dip in semolina so the soft fruit gets a bit of crunch. This little treat really wakes up the palate and gets you set for a meal that will walk a fine line between comfortable and notable that few attempt, let alone pull off. Not bad for a spot open only since April. Of course it’s almost misleading to say Toma has only been open for six months. It’s in the same beachside spot where Emilio’s had been for 21 years, and Tom Dolan says, “I worked at Emilio’s for 20 years as head waiter and manager. So I had a sense of what this restaurant could be and should be.” Emilio’s shut its doors in April 2012, so it took a year to make all the changes Dolan had in mind, including items such as a temperaturecontrolled wine room,“new tablecloths, tables, Riedel stemware, Fortessa cutlery — we upgraded to a more elegant fashion.” Tom’s wife, Vicki, was a big part of the dining room remodel, having learned much about hospitality after 30 years with the Four Seasons hotel chain. “My wife and I have traveled a lot, have gone to Italy six times,” Dolan says,“and we wanted to bring a lot of that knowledge of restaurants around the world and of Four Seasons around the world to Toma.” They didn’t look globally to find a chef, turning to Nat Ely, the last chef at Emilio’s, who has also worked at Los Olivos Café and Place Pigalle in Seattle. Dolan and Ely opted to retain “certain dishes that people put to the face of the restaurant, like the ahi tuna cones and the homemade bread from a 20-year-old starter. But we’ve evolved, too, and are trying to keep it as seasonal as we can. I hate to say farm-to-table, as it’s so overused these days, even farm-to-bar seems to be the next big thing. But that push makes for a better dining arena for Santa Barbara. Everyone has to jump on this bandwagon to succeed. We’re getting our vegetables from places like Tutti Frutti and Windrose Farms — all in the area.” While the menu features pizzas (from guanciale to smoked salmon) and pastas (from black spaghetti and clams to a meaty lasagne), Dolan is hesitant to call Toma an Italian restaurant, fully aware of all the cuisines that nation encompasses.“It’s Italian-Mediterranean influenced; that kind of sums it up,” Dolan says.“In the end, it’s just really good food.” One flip side of that good food,

THREE’S COMPANY: Chefs (from left) Alessandro Cartumini (Bella Vista), Brandon Hughes (Wine Cask), and James Siao (Finch & Fork) are cooking up three times the deliciousness this month.

by pilgrimages to restaurants including bouchon, Seagrass, and Wine Cask. But let’s face it: Progressive dinners are always better in theory than in practice. And that goes double — nay, triple! — when the stops along the way are actual restaurants, as opposed to home kitchens. So the powers — and chefs — that be at Wine Cask, The Biltmore’s Bella Vista restaurant, and Finch & Fork put their heads together and came up with the idea for this glorious Ménage à Trois. And yes, that’s what they are officially calling it. The threesome represents some of S.B.’s best chefs: James Siao of Finch & Fork at the Canary, Brandon Hughes of the Wine Cask, and Alessandro Cartumini of Bella Vista at the Four Seasons. Each will host one night; the home chef will handle the appetizers and the main, while the others provide the first course and dessert. And it’ll all be washed down with some of our area’s best wines. Let’s move on to the food porn (ahem): Tonight’s dinner will see Siao hosting Cartumini and Hughes at the Canary. The evening will begin with a reception on the rooftop and Siao’s deviled eggs, grilled oysters, and cheddar hush puppies with chipotle honey. From there, the party moves to the dining room for a feast that will begin with pear salad with chard, toasted five-spice pecans, roasted duck, and honey-mint vinaigrette (Hughes); continue with seared prime strip loin and local spot prawns, bone-marrow butter, cauliflower puree, fireroasted Brussels sprouts, and chimichurri (Siao); and finish with caramelized pear and ricotta cheesecake with avocado honey/ pine-nut brittle (Cartumini and pastry chef Don Hall). Next Thursday, October 17, the action moves to the Wine Cask, where Hughes will step into the spotlight, kicking things off in the courtyard with heirloom-tomato-and-lemon-basil arancini, chanterelle tartlets, roasted-beet-and-apple “tartare,” and cured yellowtail and sea beans on water crackers. Dinner will begin with Kabocha squash ravioli with smoked pumpkin seeds, sage, brown butter, and Humboldt Fog cheese (Cartumini); continue with a wagyu beef duo — grilled N.Y. strip with chanterelles and kale, and beef cheeks with fig “risotto” (Hughes); and finish with butterscotch pot de crème with spiced-apple compote, oatmeal crumble, and bacon almond crisp (Siao). The finale will go down Thursday, October 24, at Bella Vista. The terrace reception will feature Cartumini’s bites, including local snapper crudo with finger lime and shishitos; artichoke fritto with pecorino and chives; saffron risotto arancini with oregano-bell-pepper fonduta; and ginger-seared scallops. Dinner will start with smoked pork cheek, chili caramel, roasted-butternut-squash puree, shaved beets, and hazelnuts (Saio); next up is braised beef short ribs and lobster with polenta, carrots, gremolata, and radish (Cartumini); and a warm apple dumpling and vanilla pudding with apple salad will wrap things up (Hughes, pastry chef Rosie Moot). Turned on? Me too. (And three.)

The dinners all begin at 6:30 p.m. and cost $90 each, but $250 will get you into the full Ménage à Trois. Tickets can be purchased via nightout.com/events/ threechefs-epicuresb or by calling the restaurants individually.

reat pianists come in many varieties. Some performers have a special affinity with a specific composer, such as Richard Goode with Beethoven, or András Schiff and Bach. Others, like the wildly popular Lang Lang, carry the day with what often gets labeled as “charisma” but can mean many things according to the context. And some simply immerse themselves in the challenges that lie at the heart of what has become the core repertoire of the instrument in the modern era — not only the classical concertos and sonatas of Mozart and Beethoven, but also the huge and hugely popular romantic masterpieces of Rachmaninov and the moremodern but just-as-demanding works of Prokofiev, Stravinsky, and Chopin. The latter course is the one charted by 26-year-old piano sensation Yuja Wang, who will step up to Campbell Hall for her third appearance in Santa Barbara this Monday.

Her latest coup comes in the form of a recording, her fifth for the prestigious Deutsche Grammophon label, which has her teamed with Gustavo Dudamel and the Simón Bolivar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela for two concerti, Rachmaninov No.  and Prokofiev No. . Never one to shy away from a challenge, Wang recorded both of these extremely demanding works on the same night at a concert in Caracas in February 2013. In a recent email, Wang was ecstatic about the experience. “I am over the moon about the recording. It was one of the most exciting experiences of my life. The energy and focus from those musicians and Gustavo Dudamel is extraordinary. It moved the ‘excitement’ bar higher than I’ve ever experienced,” she wrote. Wang will reunite with Gustavo Dudamel December 19-22 for an unprecedented fourconcert stand at the Walt Disney Concert Hall with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, but in the meantime, we’ve got her, and in recital, where she is electrifying.

JUNGLE JUNGLE EP

There’s something to be said about finding an artist before they hit it big. Case in point: From London, new duo Jungle, whose online résumé is about as mysteriously nonexistent as they come. But not for long. Since dropping their track “Platoon” a few months back, they’ve been lauded by most of the UK’s music-judging elite. (Nick Lowe, we’re looking at you.) The pair makes its stateside debut this month with the US-only Jungle EP, a four-track sampler that’s as excitement inducing as it is infectious. Lead track “The Heat” is a funkedout R&B number that grooves in the same vein as Prince, falsetto vocals and all. Later, “Drops” takes D’Angelo’s brazen sexiness and backs it up with a trippy mix of low-end and synth sparkle. Still, what makes Jungle a gem of a find is all in the balance. The intricate layers of beats and samples scream high art, while the vocals and vibe teeter on the brink of slow-jam schmaltz. Wound together, though, it’s a guaranteed recipe for impending success. — Aly Comingore

NEBULA DANCE LAB KEEPS EXPANDING

Devyn Duex has big visions. Since founding Nebula Dance Lab in 2010, the mother of two with a full-time day job has also poured full-time creative energy into her performing arts nonprofit. As director, choreographer, and dancer, Duex plays many roles for Nebula, and still finds time to dream up new ventures. The latest of these is Floodlit & Fallen, an evening-length performance at Center Stage Theater taking place October 10-13, featuring seven professional dancers, original costumes, lighting, text, and music. On the program for this weekend are two group works: a reprise of Duex’s “Sand into Glass,” which premiered in 2008 and explores the idea of challenge as a formative force, and “Floodlit & Fallen,” an ambitious new multimedia work by Santa Barbara native Brooklyn Hughes, who’s back in town after earning an MFA in choreography at the University of Arizona. Duex described Hughes’s work as a “fairy tale come to life” and noted that the emphasis on ballet technique has brought out the best in her dancers. In addition to rehearsing for this show, the company has also spent the past year teaching classes through their education outreach program, touring works to dance festivals in Los Angeles and San Diego and planning “Dance for Mobility,” a service trip to Chile in 2014, during which they will perform and teach classes in partnership with the humanitarian organization Free Wheelchair Mission. When Duex named her new company, she chose the word “Nebula” to emphasize the vast scope of her project and the drawing together of disparate energies. True to that vision, the company is now in the early stages of planning for a dedicated training space focused on contemporary dance technique. Ever since the closing of the Dance Warehouse more than 15 years ago, Santa Barbara has lacked a studio devoted to modern dance, and Duex wants to fill that gap. In the meantime, she’s focused on showing work and raising funds; Nebula’s annual gala fundraiser and celebration is scheduled for November. To learn more about the company, visit nebuladance.org. For tickets to this weekend’s show, call 963-0408 or visit centerstagetheater.org. — Elizabeth Schwyzer

othing invigorates the mind like a good conversation, and that’s exactly what curator Jeremy Tessmer has created by pairing these two excellent shows of Tonalism. One is a historical survey of the style’s original period from 1870-1930, the other a group show of artists who reference the style today, with work ranging from traditional oil painting on canvas or board to photography and tapestry. Thanks to the way that some contemporary artists have adopted the softness, the attention to mood, and the unity of composition that characterized the original generation of Tonalist works, there’s a dialogue here that grounds the recent work in art history, and that makes the older paintings look fresh. Lockwood de Forest, Leon Dabo, Granville Redmond, John Francis Murphy, and Alexander Wyant are just some of the painters represented in Tonalism Then, and while not all of the names will be equally familiar, the aesthetic agenda of the movement is evident in every picture on view. Take “Daylight Full Moon with Reflection,” a small, horizontally organized oil on cardstock by de Forest from 1910. On the surface, it’s a study of a specific light situation, the latent phosphorescence of a daylight moon in a pale sky. Although working entirely within the bounds of conventional representation, de Forest nevertheless finds a suggestive set of shapes in the moon and two tall and spare trees, and, using the reflections of these three images in water, he creates a powerfully symmetrical, yet nearly freeform, shape that dominates the picture. The effect is of a Rorschach blot flipped on its side, with the bones of a Barnett Newman zip lurking within the horizon. The full moon, that ubiquitous Tonalist totem, stands for the union of subject and object; the undivided attention of the viewer absorbed in the singularity of the image that commands it. Lockwood de Forest has found a legitimate heir to his moon franchise in James David Thomas, who has three memorable paintings in the Tonalism Now show.“La Luna en el Labrinto, State II” (2012) captures the spectral beauty of a full moon setting over water through a beguiling combination of oil paint and wood grain. One is never quite sure where the gestures of the painter end and the contours of the surface begin. It’s a thoroughly modern image, but it’s also totally Tonal. David Skinner contributes a pair of small acrylics on paper. They’re just 10� × 10�, but full of life as original compositions, and they play sophisticated post-impressionist games with angles, perspective, and scale. Ben Bauer takes the de Forest daylight-moon challenge and comes up with a beautiful, breathtakingly clean and direct image of a “Spring Moonrise in South Dakota” (2012). Sarah Vedder, the area’s foremost contemporary Tonalist, has been spending time in the Santa Ynez Valley, and her haunting paintings of “Foxen Canyon Field” and “Autumn Vineyards” (both 2011) each bear her signature sense of muted, yearning sensuality. Lindsey Ross, a photographer with an interest in older equipment and film techniques, contributes four elegant and subtly subversive tintypes, including the brilliant and utterly contemporary figure of “Mel” from 2013. Looking at Wolf Kahn’s bold landscape in blue and green from 1998, it’s easy to see why he called this country scene “To Rothko,” and it’s not just the stacking of blocks of saturated color — it’s also the work’s powerful message of transcendence. At its best, Tonalism always points beyond the image toward the spirit immanent in what it depicts. No one captures this aspect of the movement better than April Gornik, and her large tapestry from 2006 called “Bower” has to be one of the most exciting and satisfying works of art shown here this year.

y very odd coincidence, the newest production by DramaDogs A Theater Company, Defying Gravity — a play about a space tragedy — happened to open the same night as the nationwide release of Gravity — a blockbuster film about a space tragedy. Add to this the fact that NASA’s website was recently grounded (that is, pulled down by political gravity), and you begin to wonder if fate is governed by the stars. Even if good theater is influenced by chance, it is only perfected by design, and codirectors E. Bonnie Lewis and Ken Gilbert draw their considerable talents to bear with this imaginative staging of Jane Anderson’s tightly crafted play. First of all, this material fits nicely with DramaDogs’s commitment to the therapeutic value of theater. Anderson wrote Defying Gravity to personally cope with the 1986 Space Shuttle Challenger explosion, which killed seven astronauts, including teacher Christa McAuliffe, shortly after takeoff. If there is any sense to be made of this event, Anderson seems to be saying that it is to be found in the larger context of the irrepressible human spirit and its frequently flawed attempts to reach the sky. Like Melanie Marnich’s play These Shining Lives (performed by UCSB’s Department of Theater and Dance last year), which follows the poisoning of women by radium in a watch factory, Defying Gravity confronts but at the same time softens a true-life tragedy with elements of the fantastic. The most obvious example is the presence of Claude Monet (played by Gilbert), whose visions of the Rouen Cathedral were his closest approach to flight. Anderson’s penchant for metaphor was cleverly extended into set and prop design: a simple array of wooden step ladders. Lighting design by Theodore Michael Dolas included a backdrop projection of agitated clouds against a shock-blue sky — a brilliantly ambivalent image of either transcendence or the trailing scars of a rocket crash. Sound design featured actual clips of the Cape Canaveral countdown, while live musical accompaniment by keyboard player and composer Eric Valinsky gently enhanced emotional contours. The cast included Michelle A. Osborne, Natascha Skerczak, Meredith McMinn, Joe Andrieu, Erica Connell, and Juan Rodriguez. Osborne and Skerczak are especially strong in their relationship as the ill-fated teacher and her daughter. But the play really achieves liftoff from Skerczak’s transparent demeanor as narrator and her spot-on ability to tap a ■ conflicted 5-year-old as she is knocked from her orbit.

FANTASTIC MR. ATKATZ

Presents

Symphony Season Opener Explores the Possibilities of Percussion COURTESY

by Tom Jacobs

P

eople have preconceived notions about percussion. That’s Ted Atkatz’s lament, and he has a point. Most of us think of drums, cymbals, and their cousins as essentially rhythm instruments — ways of keeping the beat. But to the virtuoso percussionist and longtime Music Academy of the West instructor, who will be guest soloist for the opening weekend concerts of the Santa Barbara Symphony, that’s ridiculously reductive. “To find the lyrical and linear side of percussion is a lifelong pursuit of mine,” Atkatz said in a recent interview. “There are so many nuances to be found. “I have learned over the course of a lifetime in music that every instrument can serve as a melodic instrument. It’s about finding these long lines, in the same way that a clarinetist spins a phrase. Every instrument can sing a song.” Atkatz will demonstrate this lyricism Saturday and Sunday at the Granada Theatre, when he joins the orchestra for a performance of Christopher Rouse’s Der Gerettete Alberich. The contemporary American composer describes the work as a “fantasy for percussion and orchestra.” “It’s a real challenge,” he said from his home in Los Angeles. “This is the first time I’ve played it. I was asked by Nir Kabaretti and the Santa BEAT IT: Percussionist Ted Atkatz takes on the Barbara Symphony people to take it on.

PERSONAL, POLITICAL, PROUD Bill T. Jones Returns to Santa Barbara LOIS GREENFIELD

P

ersonal or political — to choreographer Bill T. Jones, it’s a false dichotomy. Since the early 1970s, Jones has been crafting dances out of his own distinct human experience. In some cases, the resulting works have been formal studies of movement and music. Other dances tackle a clear topic or narrative: Slavery and emancipation, media and technology, AIDS — these are the works for which he is best known and which garner the strongest reactions. One such dance famously sparked the ire of a New York critic who refused MOVEMENT WITH A MESSAGE: Bill T.

Alonzo King LINES Ballet, presented by UCSB Arts & Lectures. At the Granada Theatre, Wednesday, October 2. Reviewed by Elizabeth Schwyzer

A

single silver strand falls from ceiling to floor. Rippling and undulating, it sparkles in the stage lights. Near its base, one woman paws at the stage with one foot like a bird scratching for food. She lifts her hands to claw at her chest and then tosses her hips in tight circles, at once fierce and fragile. “Meyer” (2013) is Alonzo King’s homage to composer and bassist Edgar Meyer, whose soaring score underpins the work. As bows draw faster across strings, the strand of quavering silver becomes three, then five, then a glittering sheet, and the dancing builds from solo to trio to a stageful of bodies leaping and wheeling. Out of this near-chaos emerges a pas de deux that encompasses the central duality of this company: a dance between articulation and abandon, control and release. One moment, she’s doubled over, legs tightly crossed as he holds her hips and spins her on the axis of her toe shoe. The next moment, they’re falling, running backward so fast it seems certain they’ll end up sprawled on the floor. It isn’t until one man turns his back to the audience, walks upstage, and dips his hand into the silvery flow that suspicions are confirmed: water pools and splashes in his palm, and his back and arms respond with fluid rippling. As the dance develops, order yields more and more to chaos: A woman in a whimsical wire-rimmed skirt hops about as her partner rolls on the floor, stuffing his mouth with crumpled papers. On a lesser company, such audacious departures from classical technique might collapse. With LINES, just when things seem to have tipped too far, a single stunning arabesque is all it takes to right it. “Dancing in the Rain,” from two years earlier, can be seen as a partner dance to “Meyer” insofar as both works feature falling water. Yet set as it is here — to a series of searing, melancholy Sephardic songs —“Dancing in the Rain” strikes a very different tone. Again, the action rises from a single human form to a full stage of bodies bouncing around like excited molecules, though this time their fervor feels less like a party and more like a prayer. Among the standout moments in “Dancing in the Rain” is a male duet in which one partner falls repeatedly backward, only to be caught each time by the hands — and then the feet — of his reclining partner. Though the “snow” that pours down at the end has a certain visual appeal, the real pleasure of this work is in the human tableau unfolding down below.

pace is the place,” according to the late great avant-jazz icon Sun Ra. Sandra Bullock, a beleaguered and gravitydeprived astronaut in distress, expresses a different opinion deep into her travails in Alfonso Cuarón’s striking new film, Gravity: “I hate space.” Well, okay, I take that muttered comment out of context. In fact, Bullock’s Ryan is an earthling with a sad backstory on terra firma, who loves the quiet, the vastness, and the cosmic vantage point of space, as seen from her slowly drifting, gravity-challenged perspective. But the plot thickens when her mission, with goofy quipster astronaut Matt Kowalski (played by George TOUR DE FORCE: Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity revolves Clooney), is threatened by human error: a Rusaround Sandra Bullock as a scientist stranded in space sian antisatellite test resulting in hailstorms of after an astronomical catastrophe. deadly cosmic shrapnel.

Can’t beat — Bullock, in unusually strong form, essentially carries the film in eerie floating mode, except when strapped into the view.” Just as the title itself has a minimal bluntness and a command module — and a metaphorical misadventure, doubled-up meaning, Gravity is a beautifully realized, Gravity carves out a place for itself in the ranks of space spare, yet genuinely spacious (including the stunning cinema.

hrillers shouldn’t be polite. If anything, a sense of menace ought to ooze out at you from the very first scenes.

Local Heroes WANTED

✯ Inequality for All (89 mins.; PG: thematic elements, some violence, language, smoking images) Inasmuch as America is still reeling from and scratching a collective head over the economic cataclysm that imploded five years ago, we still hunger for answers and some kind of clarity about how the calamity happened, who is to blame, and how further damage can be prevented. What to do? Go to the movies, natch. Inequality for All, like Al Gore’s global-warming cautionary tale An Inconvenient Truth, is part of that new breed of independent, real-world, and more or less real-time-geared documentaries seeking to address a vast and mysterious problem before us through the unpretentious, wise, and charismatic filter of UC Berkeley–based economist Robert Reich, former labor secretary under Bill Clinton, and a sharp, personable pundit you’ve seen on TV and heard on the radio. What makes this film work, in fact, is its humanizing Reich factor. Somehow, despite the sobering and scarifying news delivered in this surprisingly engaging film — about the wild and growing disparity of haves and have-nots and the corrupt scheming of corporations and deregulated bankers in the present day — the bad news goes down a little easier with Reich doing the telling and doing the math. What happened in 2008 may be the touchstone for the current story, but Reich, through the skilled filmmaking agency of director Jacob Kornbluth, sweeps back and forth through history to give a larger picture. We see him in his role as a popular professor and swapping wits with Jon Stewart and Bill O’Reilly. Rather than blatantly toe a liberal party line, the film deals with both the Occupy movement and the Tea Party in a fairly “fair and balanced” way. Ultimately, Reich errs on the side of optimism, asserting that “history is on the side of positive social change.” That’s a redemptive feel-good moment in a film with tentacles in the real-life-disaster film genre. (JW) Plaza de Oro

✯ Parkland (93 mins.; PG-13: bloody sequences of ER trauma procedures, some violent images, language, smoking throughout)

THE INDEPENDENT

october 10, 2013

Parkland tells the story of the Kennedy assassination in Dallas from the unique point of view of the unfamous. Perhaps the best-known name in the film’s featured lineup is Abraham Zapruder, whose accidentally privileged eight-millimeter footage (he happened to be at the right place at a tragic time) is noteworthy in nearly every discussion of the day. The man himself, played with great humility and feeling by Paul Giamatti, is infinitely less familiar to us. On the other hand, as a kind of existential-victim bookend, the movie concludes with James Badge Dale as Robert Oswald, the destiny-haunted brother of the man who ended Camelot

from a book dispensary window, and even more obscure, though apparently in plain sight all these years. In between, we watch a parade of ordinary yet vital personages: the attendant resident doctor and nurses, an FBI agent, the head of the Secret Service, and the tense-lipped Dallas police in their cowboy hats. Of course, we do glimpse Jackie, LBJ, and, in one of the film’s most memorable performances, Oswald behind bars. But the point of the film seems to be the universality of the tragic day. In the end, it may disappoint ideologues and conspiracy fans, but Parkland is a simply told, touching revisit. It may be a little too bloody and brutal for an after-school special, but it’s a vibrant documentary reenacted with the feeling and decency the topic deserves. (DJP) Plaza de Oro

PREMIERES Captain Phillips (134 mins.; PG-13: sustained intense sequences of menace, some violence with bloody images, substance use)

This French film focuses on the troubled relationship between a prestigious vineyard owner and his son and employee. Riviera

Frances Ha (86 mins.; R: sexual references, language)

Noah (The Squid and the Whale) Baumbach directs and Greta Gerwig stars in

this dramatic comedy about a young woman in New York City trying to pursue her dreams. It’s beautifully shot and full of sparkling bits of dialogue, but it doesn’t quite feel like a Baumbach film. (DJP) Sun., Oct. 13, 4:30pm, Ojai Playhouse, 145 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai

A Band Called Death (96 mins.; NR) This documentary follows the story of the 1970s punk-rock trio Death, as well as their post-mortem surge in popularity. Wed., Oct. 16, 6pm, UCSB’s MultiCultural Center

Kick-Ass 2 (103 mins.; R: strong violence,

DO WORK: Joseph GordonLevitt wrote, directed, and stars in Don Jon. ✯ Don Jon (90 mins.; R: strong graphic sexual material, language, nudity, drug use)

A young man’s unrealistic expectations make it impossible for him to form a real relationship — even when his dream girl comes along. What makes Don Jon one of the more inventive quirks of the season is that it is both frank and explicit, while also being one of the more artistically individualistic rite-of-passage movies in recent memory. (JW) Fairview/Metro 4 Enough Said (93 mins.; PG-13: crude and sexual content, comic violence, language, partial nudity)

A divorced woman (Julia Louis-Dreyfus) goes after a new mate but soon learns he’s the ex-husband of her new friend. Sadly, this film’s gimmickry, short-sold narrative elements, and production values often err on the side of glib television work. (JW)

(115 mins.; PG-13: sexual content, thematic elements, language)

A man and the daughter he found on his doorstep face new challenges when her birth mother resurfaces.

(KS) Fiesta 5 Lee Daniels’ The Butler (132 mins.; PG-13: some violence and disturbing images, language, sexual material, thematic elements, smoking)

Forest Whitaker stars as an African-American butler working in the White House at numerous significant points throughout the 20th century. Ambitious in its scope and an important film in its subject matter, The Butler is a rousing success on many fronts, even if its truth cred is wanting. (JW) Plaza de Oro Prisoners (153 mins.; R: disturbing violent content including torture, language)

When his daughter and her friend go missing, Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) sets out with Detective Loki (Jake Gyllenhaal) on a manhunt.

(95 mins.; PG: mild rude humor)

Flint Lockwood scores his dream job but leaves when he finds out that his most problematic machine is still running — and wreaking havoc. The story is sweet but not nearly as touching as the first Cloudy outing, and with the exception of Steve the Monkey, it’s surprisingly uncomplicated by weirdo fun.

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

Ron Howard directs this true-life story about the rivalry between Formula One racers James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth) and Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl). 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. (DJP) Fairview/Metro 4

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF OCTOBER  ARIES

CANCER

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Sometimes you quit games too early, Aries. You run away and dive into a new amusement before you have gotten all the benefits you can out of the old amusement. But I don’t think that will be your problem in the coming days. You seem more committed than usual to the ongoing process. You’re not going to bolt. That’s a good thing. This process is worth your devotion. But I also believe that right now you may need to say no to a small part of it. You’ve got to be clear that there’s something about it you don’t like and want to change. If you fail to deal with this doubt now, you might suddenly quit and run away somewhere down the line. Be proactive now and you won’t be rash later.

(June 21 - July 22): “The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired,” wrote Nikos Kazantzakis in his book Report to Greco. I’m hoping that when you read that statement, Cancerian, you will feel a jolt of melancholy. I’m hoping you will get a vision of an exciting experience that you have always wanted but have not yet managed to bring into your life. Maybe this provocation will goad you into finally conjuring up the more intense desire you would need to actually make your dream come true.

and decorum you like to express. Nevertheless, I am convinced that it is the proper counsel. I believe it will help you make the most out of the highly original impulses that are erupting and flowing through you right now. It will inspire you to generate a mess of fertile chaos that will lead to invigorating long-term innovations. Ready? The message comes from Do the Work, a book by Steven Pressfield: “Stay primitive. The creative act is primitive. Its principles are of birth and genesis.”

translating big dreams into practical realities. “We are stubborn on vision,” he says about his team.“We are flexible in details.” In other words, he knows exactly what he wants to create, but is willing to change his mind and be adaptable as he carries out the specific work that fulfills his goals. That’s excellent advice for you, Capricorn, as you enter the next phase of implementing your master plan.

LEO

SCORPIO

(July 23 - Aug. 22): “It is truly strange how long it takes to get to know oneself,” wrote the prominent 20th-century philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein. “I am now 62 years old, yet just one moment ago I realized that I love lightly toasted bread and loathe bread when it is heavily toasted. For over 60 years, and quite unconsciously, I have been experiencing inner joy or total despair at my relationship with grilled bread.” Your assignment, Leo, is to engage in an intense phase of self-discovery like Wittgenstein’s. It’s time for you to become fully conscious of all the small likes and dislikes that together shape your identity.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Two years ago a British man named Sean Murphy decided he had suffered enough from the painful wart on his middle finger. So he drank a few beers to steel his nerves, and tried to blast the offending blemish off with a gun. The operation was a success in the sense that he got rid of the wart. It was less than a total victory, though, because he also annihilated most of his finger. May I suggest that you not follow Murphy’s lead, Scorpio? Now is a good time to part ways with a hurtful burden, but I’m sure you can do it without causing a lot of collateral damage.

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Here’s the horoscope I would like to be able to write for you by the first week of December: “Congratulations, Aquarius! Your quest for freedom has begun to bear tangible results. You have escaped a habit that had subtly undermined you for a long time. You are less enslaved to the limiting expectations that people push on you. Even your monkey mind has eased up on its chatter and your inner critic has at least partially stopped berating you. And the result of all this good work? You are as close as you have ever come to living your own life — as opposed to the life that other people think you should live.”

VIRGO

SAGITTARIUS

PISCES

(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Grace has been trickling into your life lately, but I suspect that it may soon start to flood. A spate of interesting coincidences seems imminent. There’s a good chance that an abundance of tricky luck will provide you with the leverage and audacity you need to pull off minor miracles. How much slack is available to you? Probably as much as you want. So ask for it! Given all these blessings, you are in an excellent position to expunge any cynical attitudes or jaded theories you may have been harboring. For now at least, it’s realistic to be optimistic.

(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): “It’s an unbearable thought that roses were not invented by me,” wrote Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovsky. You’re not as egotistical as Mayakovsky, Pisces, so I doubt you’ve ever had a similar “unbearable thought.” And it is due in part to your lack of rampaging egotism that I predict you will invent something almost as good as roses in the coming weeks. It may also be almost as good as salt and amber and mist and moss — almost as good as kisses and dusk and honey and singing. Your ability to conjure up long-lasting beauty will be at a peak. Your creative powers will synergize with your aptitude for love to bring a new marvel into the world.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): Jugaad is a Hindi-Urdu word that can be translated as “frugal innovation.” People in India and Pakistan use it a lot. It’s the art of coming up with a creative work-around to a problem despite having to deal with logistical and financial barriers. Masters of jugaad call on ingenuity and improvisation to make up for sparse resources. I see this as your specialty right now, Taurus. Although you may not have abundant access to VIPs and filthy riches, you’ve nevertheless got the resourcefulness necessary to come up with novel solutions. What you produce may even turn out better than if you’d had more assets to draw on.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): In accordance with your current astrological omens, I authorize you to be like a bird in the coming week — specifically, like a bird as described by the zoologist Norman J. Berrill: “To be a bird is to be more intensely alive than any other living creature. Birds have hotter blood, brighter colors, stronger emotions. They live in a world that is always present, mostly full of joy.” Take total advantage of the soaring grace period ahead of you, Gemini. Sing, chirp, hop around, swoop, glide, love the wind, see great vistas, travel everywhere, be attracted to hundreds of beautiful things, and do everything.

(Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): “I’d rather be in the mountains thinking of God than in church thinking about the mountains,” said the naturalist John Muir. Let that serve as your inspiration, Virgo. These days, you need to be at the heart of the hot action, not floating in a cloud of abstract thoughts. The dream has to be fully embodied and vividly unfolding all around you, not exiled to wistful fantasies that flit through your mind’s eye when you’re lonely or tired or trying too hard. The only version of God that’s meaningful to you right now is the one that feeds your lust for life in the here and now.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): The advice I’m about to dispense may have never before been given to Libras in the history of horoscopes. It might also be at odds with the elegance

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Capricorn innovator Jeff Bezos built Amazon.com from the ground up. He now owns the Washington Post, one of America’s leading newspapers. It’s safe to say he might have something to teach us about

Wine of the Week

201 West Mission St. • 569-2323

This latest red release from winemaker Clarissa Nagy, whose day job is running Riverbench, furthers the welcome trend of making syrahs that are much heavier on herbs and earth than relying on juicy fruit bombs, a formerly dominant New World style that seems to be almost completely faded from most high‑end Santa Barbara County bottlings. This 2010 from White Hawk Vineyard in Los Alamos gets tarry with touches of lavender and other herbs you’d like to roast some lamb with, but also delivers enough blackberry, even a bit of cherry presence to keep you wanting more. Her recent White Hawk Viognier 2010 release is also worth seeking out, with prominent peach flavors and a super soft mouthfeel. See NagyWines.com.
