“Buddy Guy is by far and without a doubt the best guitar player alive... He really changed the course of rock and roll blues.” – Eric Clapton Listen Now:

Blind Summit Theatre The Table

WED-FRI, NOV 6-8 / 8 pm Ucsb cAmpbELL HALL Hit Show of the Edinburgh Festival

“One of the more astonishing 70 minutes of theater, puppetry, whimsy, mischief, eye-hand-brain coordination and total brilliance to be exported from London in recent years.” Chicago Sun-Times (Recommended for ages 13+ due to strong language.)

“Distinctively original pop music.”

Featuring Eugene Mirman, Dean & Britta, Bobcat Goldthwait, and others

Andrew Bird

WED, NOV 13 / 8 pm / Ucsb cAmpbELL HALL

THU, NOV 21 / 8 pm Ucsb cAmpbELL HALL

As heard on National Public Radio

A little bit rock and roll, a little bit Vaudeville and a whole lot of fun.

Paste Magazine

with The Handsome Family Renowned for his wildly imaginative songwriting and uncanny whistling abilities, Andrew Bird is more likely to blow your mind than most altpop musicians in the world today. Drawing on influences from American roots music to his classical training, the “relentlessly inventive” (NPR) Chicagoan creates densely layered soundscapes on stage with his violin, a looping pedal, guitar and glockenspiel.

Clickety Clack columnist Rachel Hoyt (second from left) is as creative in life as she is poetic in her observations of current trends online. The cofounder of Los Caped Barbarinos, a Santa Barbara group that scooters around wearing capes to spread silliness and smiles, she helped organize a rally and fundraiser earlier this month. With the help of Daniel Dreifuss (Scooters of Anarchy, Santa Maria) and several enthusiastic scooterists, the event drew people from as far away as Huntington Beach and San Luis Obispo and raised more than $500 for CASA of Santa Barbara County. Nineteen riders toured the Riviera, Montecito, Mission Canyon, and the Mesa one Saturday morning to kick off the event. Twelve riders on the final ride posed for this photo outside Hope Ranch before meandering to Goleta for the final festivities.

MAYOR

Helene Schneider

Under Mayor Helene Schneider’s guidance, Santa Barbara’s City Council has worked as a highly functioning body, even with its members’ strong personal and political differences. In this time of political shutdown, it is a gift that Santa Barbara has a government that works — and that is in no small part due to Mayor Helene Schneider.

The Independent Endorses

CITY COUNCIL

Harwood “Bendy” White

We are happy to endorse Bendy White — who seems built into the very DNA of City Hall, given his length of service on numerous boards and commissions. In the pursuit of new housing that’s affordable to people other than millionaires, he has already played a quiet leadership role in striking compromises. It’s an exceedingly delicate balancing act — one that Bendy White clearly gets.

Gregg Hart

Gregg Hart, a spokesperson for the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments, will bring to the council an obvious intelligence and sunny congeniality — and he knows traffic and transportation issues. With the caveat that Hart should recuse himself from council votes regarding the freeway, given his City Council tenure 10 years ago and his time on the Planning Commission before that, we know Gregg Hart’s qualified.

David Landecker

David Landecker has more than redeemed himself since resigning from City Council after being caught shoplifting 22 years ago. An effective and inventive executive director for Neighborhood Clinics and the Environmental Defense Center, he brings a lifetime of experience with nonprofits and private business alike. If he can keep his bull-in-the-chinashop proclivities on a short leash, we’re confident David Landecker can make a valuable contribution.

news briefs LAW & DISORDER

Two men arrested last month during the earlymorning raid of an illegal pot grow in Los Padres National Forest near Happy Canyon Road will be sentenced to 120 days in County Jail and five years of probation. Joel Lopez, 27, and Cipriano Torres, 37, each pleaded no contest to felony charges of marijuana cultivation and gun possession. Lopez told authorities he had been living and working at the grow for approximately six months, and that he was going to be paid 5 percent of the grow’s total yield. He was hired shortly after arriving illegally in the United Sates from Mexico, he said. Torres also illegally emigrated from Mexico and had been living and working at the site for five months. He was promised he would make between $15,000 and $20,000, depending on the yield. Torres told authorities the harvested marijuana was going to be transported to the Los Angeles area.

Rental Housing Project Survives Challenge in Developer Showdown

F

BY N I C K W E L S H or years, it was the th Commandment among Santa Barbara developers that no one in their right mind would try building rental housing; they’d lose their shirts. But now, Bruce Corwin — whose family is the longtime owner of the Arlington Theatre and Metropolitan Theatres chain — is threatening to do the impossible right downtown without the aid of any government subsidy. By so doing, Corwin was challenged not just by a fellow developer but practically his next-door neighbor — Marge Cafarelli — who claimed Corwin’s proposed Arlington Village project violates City Hall rules and regulations regarding sound community planning and neighborhood compatibility. Ultimately, Cafarelli managed to get nowhere very slowly with the Santa Barbara City Council this Tuesday, which — after nearly four hours of deliberation — voted 6 to 1 to deny her appeal and let Corwin proceed with his plans to build a three-story, 33-unit apartment complex right next to the Arlington Theatre. That’s largely because both sides of Santa Barbara’s long-simmering debate over residential densities profess to support rental housing. But certainly it didn’t hurt the “Village” that the Corwins — although they live in Los Angeles — have been a major presence in Santa Barbara’s business and political life for more than 50 years. By contrast, Cafarelli, who is currently building a mixed-use project on the Victoria Street side of the Arlington called Alma del Pueblo that offers million-dollar condos and indoor/outdoor market space, barely qualifies as a newcomer. Still, Cafarelli was roundly praised by all the councilmembers for identifying a serious weak spot in Corwin’s plans, one that Corwin’s agents had stubbornly insisted — until Cafarelli filed her appeal — simply could not be fixed. Given that the Arlington Theatre ranks among the Holy Trinity of Santa Barbara’s defining architectural gems — the other two being the courthouse and the mission — any effort to squeeze such different projects so 12

cheek by jowl into its immediate orbit might have been destined to end in conflict. Initially, both the Corwins and Cafarelli were intent on pursuing complementary condo projects. And they would share a driveway on Chapala Street. But as the bottom fell out of the condo market, the Corwins were persuaded to explore rental housing instead. Not only would the Arlington Village offer rental units, but the development’s overall footprint would be smaller — the average unit size is 858 square feet — and priced to the less-thanluxury market of middle-income workers. But instead of putting all the parking underground, as the Corwins had planned when contemplating condos, Arlington Village would maintain a significant portion of street-level parking. Cafarelli — who spent nearly $4 million building underground parking for the Alma — was unhappy by this turnabout. She was especially troubled by the 55-foot trucks and buses — support transport for the theater’s bigger acts — that would continue to park in the Arlington lot, competing with Alma residents for ingress and egress out of the shared Chapala Street driveway. City traffic engineers expressed similar concerns and pushed the Corwins to explore carving an additional exit onto Sola Street to prevent what looked like a foreseeable traffic nightmare from occurring. But consultants hired by the Corwins said it couldn’t be done. Speaking to the City Council Tuesday, Cafarelli all but accused the Corwins of being cheap. If she could afford to build underground parking, then certainly the Corwins — who had owned the property for 51 years — had no excuses. One of her supporters sniped the Arlington Village was architecturally “ordinary.” But Cafarelli’s big beef was over the big buses and trucks needed by the big acts that currently descend upon the Arlington lot about 12 times a year. What happens, Cafarelli demanded, if the Corwins sold to a new operator who booked more and bigger acts? And even Jack Johnson — famous as a relatively unadorned acoustic strummer — needed three big buses at his recent show, she noted.

october 31, 2013

It was obvious, however, the minute Bruce Corwin opened his mouth that Cafarelli stood no chance. “We are very proud of our architecture,” he said. “The Arlington was going to be torn down till we stepped in and saved this gloriou, glorious building. We love it. We love this city.” The Corwins, he said, could have cashed out by building condos, but Santa Barbara has a crying need for rental housing. “We made a decision to blaze a trail for others to follow,” he explained. Joining Corwin was former mayor Hal Conklin, who said the eruption of State and Victoria streets as a cultural destination district — the New Victoria Theatre, the Granada, plans to remodel the art museum, a new downtown library entrance garden, Alma del Pueblo, and the Arlington Village — was the fruition of big dreams hatched by civic visionaries more than 20 years ago. Former Downtown Organization director Marshall Rose blessed the Arlington Village as did the head of the Santa Barbara Jewish Federation. Shortly after Cafarelli appealed, the experts hired by the Corwins discovered that a Sola Street exit could work after all. Even so, a handful of business owners expressed concern about the net loss of 86 surface parking spaces, caused by the new development, that are now rented by downtown workers. City lots are nearly four times as expensive, they complained; where could they go? That is a problem all the councilmembers agreed needed to be addressed, even though the Granada parking garage still has an abundance of empty stalls. Likewise, the councilmembers seemed resolved that the Historic Landmarks Commission and the Architectural Board of Review really weren’t the right venues for addressing the broader planning issues posed by such projects; the Planning Commission is. At the end, Marge Cafarelli was not given any consolation prize for her efforts, but she got plenty of thanks and sympathy. After Councilmember Frank Hotchkiss patted her on the back for improving the Corwins’ project, he concluded,“I don’t know if you can take any solace from that, but I offer it anyway.”

Santa Barbara police arrested four people at 3 a.m. on 10/26 after officers pulled over their car for a routine traffic stop. One of the suspects — Ronald Contreras (pictured), 29 — is an area gang member out on parole for robbery. Another — Alvaro Pinedo, 27 — is on probation for vandalism and stalking. Also arrested were Jamie Gonzalez, 23, and Stephanie Herrera, 22. Contreras was driving, and a search of the car turned up 17.2 grams of methamphetamine, 3.3 grams of marijuana, a meth pipe, a folding knife, and a loaded handgun. “The handgun was found underneath the front passenger seat of the vehicle [and] was accessible to all of the occupants,” said police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood. Therefore, he explained, all four suspects were charged with firearm possession on top of various drug charges. San Francisco police arrested former Santa Barbara resident Manuel Munoz on charges that he repeatedly molested two young boys he is related to between 2007 and 2009. Munoz, 63, was taken into custody at his S.F. residence on charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child while residing in the same home of a victim under 14 years of age; committing a lewd act upon a child under 14 years of age by force, violence, duress, menace, or fear of great bodily injury to the victim or another person; and intimidating a witness or victim.

O Drama, Goleta-Style

Members of the Goleta City Council, in addition to the city’s attorney, Tim Giles, spent most of last Friday and this Monday in special closed-session meetings deliberating over City Manager Dan Singer’s annual performance evaluation. The meetings attracted some questions — Singer (pictured) is the city’s highest-paid employee, at $202,277 a year — as the agendas for each noted, in addition to the performance review, an item related to the “discipline/dismissal/release” of a public employee. At the end of Monday’s meeting, the council said that no reportable action had been taken, but city staff noted that the discussions on the matter are not over and will continue at another regularly scheduled closed-session meeting on November 5. The city hasn’t made any statement on the disciplinary agenda item, but said that the review is consistent with Singer’s three-year contract. At the end of Monday’s session, Singer — who has served as city manager since September 2005 and previously held the same position for the City of Ojai — said that the meetings would only result in “minor changes” to his contract. “Be sure to report that I’m going to be around,” he said. — Lyz Hoffman

dock at a Goleta dairy company last month, has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the company, as well as the transportation company and the truck’s driver. The suit alleges that Alta Dena Certified Dairy and DeFrancesco’s Dairy Transport, Inc. (based in Rancho Cucamonga) allowed driver Cory Lopez to operate the truck knowing his reported history of drug and alcohol abuse and impaired driving. Ortiz’s wife, son, and mother are suing for financial and punitive damages. According to the Sheriff’s Department, the accident is being investigated by Cal/OSHA. The Sheriff’s Office is investigating the death of a 22-year-old UCSB student found unresponsive by his roommate on 10/26. Brandon Schmidt, from Alameda County, was discovered at 9:45 a.m. in his apartment on the 6600 block of Del Playa Drive in Isla Vista. Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover said coroner’s officials are looking into the cause and manner of Schmidt’s death and won’t make any determinations until toxicology results are back in four to six weeks.

CITY DIRECTV and KEYT’s parent company, News-Press & Gazette (NPG) of St. Joseph, MO, reached an agreement 10/25 that will bring NewsChannel 3 back to DIRECTV subscribers. DIRECTV customers throughout the tri-counties lost KEYT’s signal on 10/9 after the two sides came to an impasse in negotiations over their rebroadcast contract. “While we are pleased NPG has restored the stations,” DIRECTV said in a statement, “we’re equally as frustrated that they took them away in the first place. This is just another unfortunate example of broadcasters violating the public trust in an attempt to extract higher fees

from our customers.” Terms of the contract were not given. Santa Barbara City College students voted last week to increase their transportation fee $5.50 per semester to $30 total. Set to begin next July, the summer session fees will also increase $2.50 to about $13. The higher fees will translate to a more than $150,000 annual boost for MTD. Currently, MTD receives about $800,000 from SBCC based on enrollment with just over 1 million rides given to city college students each year. The current fee translates to less than 80 cents a ride, which is about half of the adult cash fare.

COUNTY The Goodland Coalition, a group of Goleta activists concerned about development, filed an appeal on 10/24 of the Planning Commission’s recent 3-2 approval of a drive-through for the McDonald’s in the Camino Real Marketplace. The group is worried about how the drive-through — which restaurant owner David Peterson has been vying for since 1997 — will affect traffic and related greenhouse-gas emissions. “We are surprised,” said project manager Troy White of the appeal. “This is a project that has no new impacts while providing significant community benefits.” The appeal will go before the City Council at a date to be determined. A Goleta Planning Commission decision on the Marriott Residence Inn proposed for Hollister Avenue at Robin Hill Road — across from the airport — was delayed 10/28 to 11/25 because of an error in the meeting’s noticing.

Rummage Sale Relocated

For decades, the Santa Barbara Unitarian Society had hosted Starr King Parent-Child Workshop’s annual rummage sale, but the October 25-26 event (pictured above) was the last one that will be held on church property. Church officials, whose congregation has nearly doubled in the past five years, said their location on Santa Barbara Street can no longer accommodate Starr King’s fundraiser because the event displaces several activities during the week leading up to the two-day sale. Starr King Director Yolanda Medina-Garcia said she is disappointed by the church’s decision and that she is still trying to find a new site. Last year, the event raised $26,500. Proceeds and tuition fees run Starr King, which will continue to hold its parent-child workshop at the Unitarian Society. “This is firmly not about the relationship between Starr King and the Unitarian Society,” Assistant Minister Julia Hamilton said. She explained the large sale forced several classes — spiritual biography, meditation, film, cooking, and others — to rearrange their schedules as Starr King parent volunteers accepted and sorted hundreds of second-hand goods in the church classrooms and courtyards. Jack Rivas, a longtime volunteer whose two children attended Starr King over 30 years ago, said last year’s sale was going to be the last at the Unitarian Society, but per negotiations between both sides — and some community input — the church allowed Starr King to rent the space for one final sale. “Starr King is appreciative [to the church] for hosting them for so many years,” Medina-Garcia said. “We’ve been able to serve for — Kelsey Brugger decades.”

Pulling information from the voluntary notification website FracFocus, ForestWatch determined that six more wells were fracked there in recent months by the Houston, Texas–based Seneca Resources, which reported using 4.75 million gallons of water for the operation alongside a laundry list of chemicals. Sine June 2012, 13 wells have been fracked in the Sespe Oil Field, without any additional public notice or environmental studies, claimed ForestWatch, noting that the area is upstream from Sespe Creek, which supplies residential and agricultural water to the region.

If the latter transaction takes place, the proceeds would be turned into an endowment for classical music in Santa Barbara. The foundation has retained a broker with Public Radio Capital to facilitate the deal, and Gallo said there have been three serious inquiries into the station.

The Santa Barbara Foundation bought the 87-year-old classical music station in 2003 through a donation by banker/philanthropist Michael Towbes, but at its September meeting, the foundation’s board unanimously decided to relinquish control after KDB ran more than $400,000 in deficits over the last three years with an even greater loss expected this year. The announcement was made during a tense meeting attended by a who’s who of the South Coast arts scene — on hand were representatives from the Granada, Lobero, and Ensemble theaters, Santa Barbara Symphony, Opera Santa Barbara, UCSB Arts & Lectures, and Music Academy of the West — all of which were reportedly unaware of how far KDB had run into the red.

$7.9 Million Stare-Down for Schools

The Santa Barbara Unified School District will have to pay the state $7.9 million if district administrators and local legislators can’t convince the Department of Finance otherwise. The 2011-2012 school year marked the first time the district was considered “basic aid,” meaning funds it received from property taxes disqualified it from receiving state money. When Redevelopment Agencies (RDAs) were dissolved in 2012, the district received a onetime liquid asset payment and was again classified as “basic aid.” Now, it is required to give a percent back — also known as the Fair Share Reduction — or a sum of about $8 million, which is expected of all districts that are “basic aid” for two years in a row. “It’s a unique quirk,” said H.D. Palmer, deputy director for External Affairs in the Department of Finance. “The way the formulas are written now, that onetime payment would be factored into their ongoing Fair Share Reduction.” Palmer explained the department now has to determine if it is fair to impact the district in the long term for “something onetime in nature.” “[The dissolution of the RDAs] offsets what the state owes us …. If we get more, then they take it,” said Assistant Superintendent Meg Jetté (pictured at right). “We have bad luck that we’re just over the threshold. It’s a perfect storm that could temporarily hurt our funding, even though our funding is increasing overall,” Assemblymember Das Williams said. “If the school district has to pay back that $7.9 million in one year, that’s going to be a big interruption in prosperity, and we should avoid that.” The good news for the district is that funds from the Local Control Funding Formula are expected to increase funding per pupil each year until it is fully implemented by 2020-2021. Currently, per-pupil spending for the district is $7,091, but per-pupil spending is expected to increase to over $10,000 by 2020-2021. In simple terms, school districts receive money from a combination of local property taxes and state taxes based on its “revenue limit,” which is calculated from a complex formula based in part by how many students attend school each day.

acing widespread opposition from neighbors in the Santa Ynez Valley that would likely lead to years of delays, the Chumash tribe is now calling on the U.S. Congress to speed up its dreams of annexing Camp , the 1,400 acres it purchased from actor-turned-vintner Fess Parker for about $40 million in 2010. Last Wednesday night, Rep. Doug LaMalfa, a Republican who represents the entire northeastern corner of California, brought legislation before the House of Representatives that would make the property part of the Chumash reservation, thereby taking it off the County of Santa Barbara’s tax rolls and, more worrisome to many, allow development to proceed there without having to endure the region’s strict planning rigamarole. The Chumash have long maintained that they solely intend to build housing on the property for tribal members and descendents — many of whom lived in relative poverty until the building of the Chumash Casino a decade ago — and the bill, according to those who have seen the text, would prohibit gambling facilities from ever being built on Camp . Cosponsoring the legislation, known as H.R. , are four additional representatives: Tony Cárdenas, a Democrat from northern Los Angeles; Jeff Denham, a Republican from Modesto; David Valadao, a Republican from Visalia; and Joe Garcia, a Democrat from South Florida. Representative Lois Capps, however, will not be adding her name to that list. “I do not support Rep. LaMalfa’s legislation,” said Capps, whose district includes all of Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo counties. “I understand how important this issue is for residents of the Santa Ynez Valley, the Chumash tribe, and, indeed, the entire county. That is why I continue to believe a local resolution between the county and the tribe is best for all parties involved.” This was not an entirely unexpected maneuver for the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians — they’ve actually been open about their desire and intent to do so all along — and the tribe is also still simultaneously pursuing the more traditional fee-to-trust process to take the land into its reservation. But the County of Santa Barbara has already called on the Bureau of Indian Affairs to reconsider that approval, indicating that it will likely raise official appeals that could delay any final decision for many years. “It was a momentous day in the history of our tribe,” said the tribe’s chairman, Vincent Armenta, of the bill’s introduction. “Members of the tribe, their children, and their grandchildren need a place where they can live and raise their families on tribal land governed by their own tribal government, and the Camp  land is ideal.” A fact sheet distributed by the Chumash also pointed out that the no-gambling provision was included at the tribe’s request, that the property is less than two miles east of the existing reservation, that only 17 per-

cent of members and descendants currently live on the reservation, and that all development there will be subject to reviews by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Army Corps of Engineers. “It’s very unfortunate but not unexpected,” said County Supervisor Doreen Farr, whose rd District includes the Santa Ynez Valley. “This has been coming, and, clearly, they were working on it before the board ever took this last vote on Camp .” That vote occurred two weeks ago, when the supervisors decided to officially opposed the fee-to-trust annexation process and request further environmental reviews. Upon learning of the news, Farr’s office was immediately in touch with Capps’s staff, and they have sent out emails to all their constituents. “The word is out,” said Farr. “The community was alerted to it right away. I’m sure that both Congresswoman Capps as well as the offices of those members of Congress will be hearing from the community.” On Thursday afternoon, Rep. LaMalfa’s legislative director Kevin Eastman defended the congressmember’s entry in regional affairs by explaining that the bill’s sponsors are a bipartisan group, including every Californian on the Indian Affairs Subcommittee, which had discussed this exact issue during the last session. “The authors of the bill recognize that the tribe has a legitimate need for housing, one too pressing to go through the decadeplus bureaucratic maze of the BIA’s procedural hurdles,” said Eastman in an email, “and that the tribe’s long-term investment in the land and efforts to ensure that county budgets are positively impacted speak to their willingness to be good neighbors.” Eastman dismissed the notion that the Camp  annexation was widely opposed, noting that county supervisors have split votes on the issue and that the state legislators are also split. He chastised the recent decision by the county supervisors to not open up a government-to-government dialogue with the tribe. “I doubt the local officials who have refused to talk with the tribe would treat any other landowner with such disregard,” said Eastman,“and it’s disappointing to see that such behavior still exists in California.” When asked whether Rep. LaMalfa had received any campaign contributions from the tribe, Eastman said he had “no knowledge of fundraising efforts.” A quick web search, however, revealed that LaMalfa had received a $1,000 contribution from the tribe in the 2013-2014 campaign cycle. The bill’s cosponsors have also been sent a list of questions related to their involvement in the Camp  annexation. Friday morning, Congressmember Jeff Denham’s press secretary Jordan Langdon replied. “Congressman Denham has been concerned about Native American issues since the time he came into office in the California state senate,” he said.“As the vice chair of the Native American caucus,

MONTESSORI

COU RTESY

he has worked diligently on this issue and many others.” Noting that Denham is also working on other Native American bills in different parts of the country, Langdon explained, “This bill is a product of lengthy consultation between the community, the tribe, and Congress. It will ensure that tribe members have access to tools for self-reliance, including food, housing, education, and clean water.” As of Wednesday morning, none of the other cosponsors had responded to the questions. In the current 20132014 campaign cycle, the Chumash tribe has contributed $5,200 to Rep. Cardenas, who also received $5,000 in the 2011-2012 CAMP 4: Representative Doug LaMalfa (R-CA 1st) sponsored cycle and now counts the the Chumash annexation. Chumash as one of his top five funders. Rep. Denham accepted $5,000 from the tribe this cycle, and Protection Network, said she was “deeply dis$3,500 from them last cycle. Representatives turbed” the tribe ignored the county’s request Garcia and Valadao do not show any to sit down and “work in partnership” on the contributions from the tribe in their top 100 property. “This attempt to force fee-to-trust funders. on Camp  via an act of Congress is an affront Those concerned about the Camp  annex- to the county, the community, and the State of ation continued sounding their alarms on California,” said Jordan. “I urge all our elected Thursday upon hearing the news. Susan Jor- officials at the state and federal level, including dan, who has been tracking the Camp  issue the governor, to take whatever steps are necesin her role as head of the California Coastal sary to stop this unprecedented legislation.”

Trial Date Set for Gang Injunction

N

BY N I C K W E L S H early three full years after its initial unveiling, Santa Barbara’s proposed and much-debated gang injunction will get its day in court sometime in the middle of March. At that time, Judge Colleen Sterne will determine whether the proposal — which would severely limit the rights of 30 named alleged gang members to freely assemble — is warranted and whether there’s sufficient evidence to conclude that those named pose sufficient risk to the community to justify the additional restrictions. In response to growing concern of “mission creep” by activists critical of the proposed injunction, Assistant City Attorney Tom Shapiro asked Judge Sterne to strike the 300 “John and Jane Does” listed on the complaint beyond the 30 adults named. Although the inclusion of such “Does” is boilerplate language common to much civil litigation, it was seized upon by critics to suggest that what City Hall described as a very limited action would be far broader and open ended. The elimination, however, will do little to quell suspicions. As Shapiro readily acknowledged, if the injunction is approved, nothing precludes City Hall from adding additional people to the list. Their inclusion, however, would be the subject of a new court action and would have to be approved by a judge. Attorney Tara Haaland-Ford — who represents an alleged gang member named in the injunction — seized upon this fact. “They could paper the entire community,” she argued.

The issue became sufficiently contentious that Mayor Helene Schneider, a proponent of the injunction, wrote an op-ed piece that appeared in the Santa Barbara News-Press last week insisting that the injunction would be limited to just the 30 individuals named. Schneider also took the unusual step of criticizing a city councilmember by name — Cathy Murillo — accusing her of spreading misinformation about what the injunction would do. Murillo, the only councilmember to oppose the injunction, had been quoted in the media questioning whether the filing would prohibit named individuals from riding the same bus to classes at City College or taking their kids to schools. Murillo later elaborated that she had raised such questions on behalf of social-service providers who deal with at-risk youth. (At a City Council meeting in May, City Attorney Steve Wiley stated it would be “stupid” if the city sought to use the injunction in that fashion and stated no judge would ever approve it.) Initially, Judge Sterne had suggested an earlier date to start the trial, but one of the lead attorneys arguing against the injunction had to be in Santa Maria representing one of the 30 who’s since been charged with torture and extortion in a gang-related drug ring. HaalandFord, however, said the facts would demonstrate that her client should never have been named because he’s a new father, taking classes, staying out of trouble, and “focusing on his family.”

Opinions DON’T BE STUPID … JUST VOTE: Early Tues-

day evening, I narrowly missed a flash mob of about 25 cultural guerillas who invaded the Farmers Market to sing a wonderfully contorted campaign jingle extolling the virtues of City Council candidate David Landecker. It was sung to the tune of Woody Guthrie’s greatest hit, “This Land Is Your Land,” and by any standard, the event qualified as a first in the annals of local politics. Though many of the singers were endowed with serious pipes, some aggressive panhandlers sitting within earshot filed an official complaint, demanding City Hall pass an injunction against future lyrics in which “sustainability” is made to rhyme with “Santa B.” On Wednesday night, the Young Republicans took over the Westside watering hole Bo Henry’s so that council candidate Jason Nelson could lead off a karaoke fundraiser in his honor, impersonating the Man in Black on “Ring of Fire” and “Folsom Prison Blues.” For those of us who remember when Bo Henry’s was still the gloriously named San Andres Fault — where college dudes knew better than deign to descend — it’s a case of “There goes the neighborhood.” Now, there’s a freaking Picasso painting hanging behind the bar — and it’s not even a nude. I’m betting it’s an “authentic” original. Only in Santa Barbara does this qualify as “progress.” We now find ourselves in the last week — not to be confused with the “penultimate”— of this year’s City Council election, on which nothing really rides except the future existence of the

angry poodle barbecue

Night of the Living Dog planet. Election Day is this Tuesday. Many voters have no doubt tossed out the vote-by-mail ballots sent to their domiciles by City Hall, mistaking it for yet another announcement from The Prize Patrol that they might be stopping by with a billboard-sized check with at least eight zeros to the left of the decimal point. Maybe that’s why City Hall reports that mail-in ballots are trickling in much more slowly this year than they have in the previous two all-mail elections. At last count, we’re about 1,000 votes behind the previous two elections, indicating turnout may be just barely ankle-high. With this in mind, Landecker and Nelson deserve style points for trying something different. This year’s election started off as a conversation in search of a subject, but sort of evolved into a side-of-the-mouth, back-of-the-hand debate about the proposed gang injunction. Better late than never, I say, despite much of the gratuitous hyperventilation involved. (I would suggest the cops will garner far more community goodwill and discourage gang recruiting more effectively by opening, as they just did last week, brand new offices at the Franklin Neighborhood Center, strategically located across the street from the Pennywise Market, a k a Ground Zero for Eastside gang activity. I get the motivation behind the injunction — when three noncombatants get killed by gang violence, you have to do something — the cops’ money would have been better spent opening other such neighborhood offices than pissing it away in a

three-year legal battle that’s far from over. But that’s just me.) This year’s election also became a de facto referendum — however subliminally — on Caltrans’s plans to widen the freeway and build a carpool lane. I was struck at a candidates’ forum held by five Milpas-area business organizations that only candidate Gregg Hart actually supports the Caltrans plan. All the others — from all sides of the proverbial aisle — expressed serious reservations. Given that Hart works for a government agency (SBCAG) charged with getting the Caltrans plans approved, I’d say if he wins a seat on the council, as he likely will, he will find he won the battle but lost the war. Hart has sought to downplay opposition to the $500-million project as a political conspiracy hatched by Mayor Helene Schneider to curry favor with self-absorbed Montecito gazillionaires so she has lots of rich friends when she decides to run for Congress or county supervisor a few years hence. Even if Hart is absolutely correct about Schneider, his theory fails to account for the antipathy for the Caltrans plan expressed by the city’s planning commission — unanimously — and by his fellow candidates — also unanimously. Creeping into the debate was talk, a whisper really, of challenging the way city councilmembers are elected. There was a forum held two weeks ago on the virtues of district elections, which I was quick to dismiss as the exasperation expressed by the usual band of dreamers, naysayers, and malcontents who can’t work their

will under the city’s current at-large system. Personally, I prefer a mix of the two systems, but I’m not sure if I’ve really thought it out or am just bored. We do know, however, that 38 percent of the city’s population is of Latino origin. And in the last 20 years, there’ve been just two Latino councilmembers. Stretch that to 40, and we’ve had three. That’s even worse than the silver screen, where only 4.2 percent of the 20,000 speaking roles in the top grossing 500 movies over the past five years went to Latino actors. The big news here is that attorney A. Barry Cappello (Mr. ABC) has agreed to sue City Hall on behalf of his old pal Leo Martinez — elected to the council way back in the ’70s, if Leo asks him to. As a rule, Mr. ABC does not take loser cases. He knows where the throat is, and he goes for it. Almost always, he walks away with lots of money. In other words, he’s a serious threat. Martinez, who qualifies as a contrarian’s contrarian, came within a hair’s breadth of victory at the ballot box when he took the matter to the voters 23 years ago, and he ran a crappy campaign. This time, he might go straight to court, and changes in California civil rights law could make the city’s at-large elections easy pickings. In the meantime, if you don’t know where your mail-in ballot got to, show up at City Hall in De la Guerra Plaza and ask for a replacement or provisional ballot (or call 564-5309). If you don’t know where City Hall is, you should.You own it. And don’t be stupid. Vote. — Nick Welsh

Marie Berliner Levy was born on December ,  to Mark and Dora Berliner in Brooklyn, New York. With a zest for life, Marie, as an only child, enjoyed a wonderful childhood, helping her parents in their clothing store, attending James Madison High School and Hunter College. On a blind date she met her husband, Samuel Jacob Levy, to whom she was married for  years, until his death in . From being an only child, Marie joined a family of  siblings. She had no trouble fitting in and enjoyed sharing a drink of Slivovitz with her father-inlaw. Marie raised her three children in White Plains, New York where she was a professional volunteer, serving as treasurer for many charities, volunteer coordinator for White Plains Hospital one of the founders of the Westchester Volunteer Services Bureau and a long time volunteer for the United Jewish Appeal. Marie’s passions were playing bridge, golf, dancing and having a good drink in the afternoon. She commanded a room when she made an entrance, was a wonderful hostess and terrific friend who always knew how to make each person feel welcome and comfortable. She would greet strangers as if they were her neighbors. She was adored by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren who regularly visited with her and their grandfather when they relocated to Palm Beach, Florida in  and here in Santa Barbara where she has lived at Maravilla for the last seven years. Marie Levy’s unfailing optimism, cheerfulness, pragmatism, and generosity made her deeply cherished. She leaves behind a vivid, loving memory in those fortu-

the shock wave as it passed through the façade of SBHS across from their Anapamu Street home. He was the first in his family to have a specialized higher education, graduating UC Berkeley with honors as a Civil Engineer in . Under the auspices of the Army Air Corps, he received a double Masters Degree in Meteorology. Upon graduation he was commissioned as a lieutenant in the Army Air Force. Ruth Kuns and Norman Caldwell were married in Montecito on Dec , . The next morning, driving away on their honeymoon, the newlyweds heard about the attack on Pearl Harbor on the radio. His career as a military officer began in Tucson, AZ, and ended at the close of the War in India, Burma and China. Beginning as a weather officer (forecaster,) Caldwell became a pilot, and later, Assistant Regional Control Officer, Third Weather Region, stationed in San Antonio, TX. His overseas tour was in a CBI assigned to General Tunner as staff weather officer. Caldwell was one of the pilots and weather officers who flew supplies from Burma to China over the Himalayas, known as “Flying the Hump.” He also maintained his active Reserve status and retired in  as a Colonel. Norm and wife Ruth returned to Santa Barbara after World War II, when he began to work for the new Public Works Department, just as the housing boom of the ’s began. He designed and built his home on the Riviera to leave their oak grove intact as they nestled it into the trees. During Norm’s + years as Santa Barbara County Public Works Director, many public buildings were built, rebuilt, or remodeled, including the challenge of remodeling the historic County Court House. Some of his favorite projects were the recreational areas at Lake Cachuma. He headed the County Water Agency from - and was Staff Engineer from . Flood Control was part of Public Works at the time, and Norm used to get up in the middle of the night to help sandbag the creeks during heavy rains. After retiring from Santa Barbara County in , Norman shared his engineering expertise with many local architects and engineers. His long career and experience helped to flesh out local history and solve restoration problems. Serving on the restoration committee of the Santa Barbara Trust for Historic Preservation, he provided the expertise needed. Not idle in retirement, among the projects Caldwell enjoyed was engineering the refurbishment of roads and bridges for the Sandpiper Golf Course, Paso Robles and La Purisima golf courses in the ’s. Norman received many honors and awards in his lifetime, richly deserved. One was the Order of the Flying Cloud, from the Chinese government, and the California State Park Association’s Volunteer of the Year for  years of service. He was given accolades just last April at the Presidio Chapel by the SB Trust for Historic Preservation. He is fondly remembered as a rock of support, advice and adventure for

his daughters. Experiences like learning to ride a bike, the family camping trips to the Sierras, fly fishing, backpacking, flying or sailing taught them to love to travel the mountains and the world as he did. He continued backpacking with favorite friends into his ’s, including climbing Mount Whitney and making special snow cones on beautiful Sierra summits. He is now where the forecast is a weatherman’s dream: Clear Air, Visibility Unlimited (CAVU.)

Jennifer Sketekee was a loving mother and wife. This beautiful poem was written in honor of her: Don’t you know that god above, picked you out for me to love. He picked you out from all the rest, cause he knew your love would be the best. I had a heart and it was true, but now it’s gone from me to you. So take good care of it as I have done, for you have two and I have none. And when I die I’ll write your name in the stars, so the angels there will know who you are. And if I don’t see you on my judgment day, I’ll know you’ve gone the other way. And just to show my love for you, I’d even walk through hell for you. Hendry’s beach, Saturday, November nd at noon.

In Memoriam

Albert ‘Bud’ Wheelon 1929-2013

A

Scientist, Patriot, Gentleman

lbert Wheelon, known as Bud, was a quiet man who lived with his adored wife Cicely on a side street in Montecito without drawing attention to himself. When asked what he did for a living, Bud would say he was a physicist. This was a bit like Plácido Domingo saying he was a singer. Bud Wheelon was in fact one of our country’s most distinguished theoretical physicists — and much more. His success in developing the first U.S. spy satellite, code-named Corona, provided president John F. Kennedy with vital aerial photos during the near-miss Cuban missile crisis in 1962. Bud might have become a national hero had this been public knowledge at the time, but Corona remained top secret until President Clinton ordered its photos declassified 30 years later. Perhaps it was a lifetime of secrecy as he developed successor satellites for the Central Intelligence Agency that encouraged Bud’s reticence even after programs on which he had worked were declassified. For whatever reason, Bud was by a light-year the most unassuming man I’ve ever known. Once he told me he was going to Washington to attend the Goddard Medal ceremonies. What he did not say was that he was receiving the prestigious Goddard Medal. Bud had received many such awards without being defined by any of them. I learned of the awards by following the advice of the colorful and longgone baseball manager Casey Stengel, who said about statistics and records, “You can look it up.” If you look up the record on Albert Wheelon, you will find he won the United States Distinguished Intelligence Medal in 1966, the Baker Medal for Excellence in National Security Affairs in 1993, and in 1994 the R.V. Jones medal — named for the British scientist who foiled Nazi radar with strips of tinfoil — for his contributions to national security. Later this month, Bud will posthumously receive the National Academy of Engineering’s Simon Ramo Founders Award. With due respect to Casey Stengel, there is much about secret spy satellites one can’t look up. During my 26 years at the Washington Post, I became familiar with the public record of the spy satellites. The CIA relied on these satellites after the Soviets demonstrated they had the capacity to shoot down even the highestflying spy planes by downing a U- piloted by Gary Powers in 1960, causing a superpower crisis. But I didn’t know that, even before this incident, Bud had worried about the vulnerability of aircraft to Soviet missiles. Nor did I know he had been on the verge of resigning after the Cuban missile crisis, frustrated with bureaucratic infighting that he believed impinged on accurate intelligence gathering. Instead of losing Wheelon, President Kennedy made him deputy director of the CIA in 1962 and put him in charge of the newly established Office of Science and Technology. It was good he did. President Lyndon B. Johnson said in an off-the-record

QUIET, UNASSUMING, AND BRILLIANT: Bud Wheelon, one of the country’s most distinguished theoretical physicists, was tasked with the successful development of the first U.S. spy satellite, code-named Corona, which provided President Kennedy with vital aerial photos during the near-miss Cuban missile crisis in 1962.

LBJ said that Corona data revealed the Soviets were weaker than the U.S. had suspected. President Clinton said in declassifying the Corona photos in 1992 that they had helped to contain the nuclear arms race. Most of what I know about Bud Wheelon’s immense role in all this comes from Philip Taubman’s book Secret Empire: Eisenhower, the CIA, and the Hidden Story of America’s Space Espionage. Taubman, an award-winning New York Times reporter, wrote that the Corona program had by 1964 photographed all 25 ICBMs (intercontinental ballistic missiles) in the Soviet Union and kept Washington informed about Soviet military forces and weapons. “The national reconnaissance systems which the United States now has, which are truly jewels in our crown, all stem, in my judg-

ment, from the creative work that Bud Wheelon did in the ’60s,” William Perry, secretary of defense in the Clinton administration, told Taubman. I read Taubman’s book in 2005 and asked Bud about it. He said it was accurate, adding that many others shared in Corona’s success. The book, fascinating in its own right, made me realize that I had known very little about Bud’s achievements. He had sought me out years earlier, perhaps because he learned I was a biographer of Ronald Reagan. Bud, who had known presidents from Dwight Eisenhower through Clinton, was curious about Reagan. Much later, when he was at Stanford to participate in a meeting of the Center for International Security and Cooperation, Bud obtained and passed on to me a declassified transcript of the fateful meeting between Reagan and Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev at Reykjavík, Iceland. This transcript demonstrates that Reagan was anything but the amiable dunce that his critics imagined him to be. But I digress. What I knew about Bud before reading Taubman’s book was that he was kind and witty. He and his wife Cicely would invite me and my wife Mary with three or four other people to dinner, where the gossip was more often about contemporary politics than history and science. Bud was mildly progressive in his political views. He worried about nuclear proliferation. Anticipating subsequent historical revision, he considered Eisenhower an outstanding president —“The best I knew,” he said — because of his understanding of the nuclear danger. He also admired Eisenhower’s famous farewell speech in which he warned of the dangers of what he called “the military-industrial complex.” Bud was a member of this complex — although hardly a compliant one. He left the CIA in 1967 to head the fledgling satellite business of Hughes Aircraft, eventually becoming chair of the company, which by the 1980s was producing almost half the satellites then in orbit. When General Motors purchased Hughes in 1988, Bud launched an internal investigation of GM because of possible bribes on an air-defense contract for Egypt. GM, which had other business in Egypt it wished to protect, was appalled. Bud was fired, and the Justice Department — at GM’s behest, he believed — instead investigated Bud. It found nothing and dropped the probe after five years. I once gently asked Bud about this period. He told me the story with a lack of outward emotion, but I sensed he still felt hurt by what he believed GM had done to him. Most of the time, Bud dwelled not on the past but the future, although he was always willing to discuss the history of spy satellites. He managed to give a speech on the subject to a luncheon group to which we both belonged while hardly mentioning his own role. In later years, as Bud’s health declined, we’d run into each other at the Summerland Post Office or the Thursday Farmers Market in Carpinteria. I would ask how he was. Even though Bud had cancer and another malady — a physician of our acquaintance said Bud knew he had less than a year to live — he invariably said he was doing fine. Instead of sharing his own medical report, as people of our age tend to do, he’d recount Cicely’s valiant efforts to recover from a stroke. Bud Wheelon, reserved and uncompromising, was liked and respected by his friends. He was a gentleman and an entertaining dinner companion. He took an interest in other people’s work. And at a crucial time in American history, he manned the aerial battlements and provided information that helped save the world from nuclear destruction. ■ You can look it up. october 31, 2013

More than a century ago, some of the world’s most influential thinkers predicted the future demise of religion, many arguing that they themselves were experiencing religion’s last gasp. Had they lived longer, these scholars would have witnessed a significant resurgence of world religions globally and the accompanying burgeoning of new forms of these religions. Charles Farhadian has developed this talk for the non-specialist, and he will reflect on the movement of various major religions and the ways they have profoundly transformed the world.

A

s past president of the Environmental Defense Center (EDC) from 2008 through 2011, I worked very closely with David Landecker (then EDC’s executive director). I enthusiastically join with The Santa Barbara Independent in endorsing David’s candidacy for Santa Barbara City Council. David was skillful in his leadership of EDC, as he was in leading the Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics, his own company, the Citizens Planning Association, and other local nonprofits. He excels at organizational and fiscal management. David assures that every participant understands the challenges and opportunities, and he develops teamwork and coordination to set and meet goals. His detailed attention to managing the budget successfully steered EDC through difficult financial times. I am confident his business sense, deep caring, and tireless work habits will produce great results for our city. — Gail Osherenko, S.B.

Gang Injunction Unconstitutional

R

ecently, Mayor Helene Schneider shared a critique of tactics used by opponents of the city’s proposed gang injunction; we thank her for the clarification. It takes courage to stand firm in one’s ideals, going against her party base while up for reelection. In December 2012, the Santa Barbara Democratic Central Committee voted to oppose the injunction. In September 2013, the Central Coast Republican Liberty Caucus (CCRLC) unanimously voted to oppose the injunction, joining the fight to stop its implementation. The mayor insists the “injunction creates a restraining order against 30 named adult individuals … ” We applaud the removal of the 300 unnamed John Does this past Monday; we demand that the two unincorporated entities in question be removed, as well. This reflects the mayor and City Council’s wishes that the injunction never be applied to any additional adults or juveniles. We ask for clarification regarding the claim on page 4 of the pleadings filed by the city to include the alleged unincorporated entities: “Defendant Eastside is … an unincorporated association within the meaning of Corporations Code Sec. , inasmuch as it consists of two or more indi-

viduals joined by mutual consent for some common lawful purpose, such as attending social gatherings, recreational events, and funerals.” Take a second to ponder the implications behind that. While we believe that the injunction is unconstitutional on its face, we are encouraged by the dialogue. — Brandon Morse, Secretary, CCRLC

The Sky Really Is Falling

I

believe that humanity is standing on the brink of a possible worldwide nuclear holocaust. Large quantities of radioactive material are in a precariously unstable situation in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear facility. An inability to effectively keep this material cool could easily result in another nuclear event. Another natural disaster like the recent typhoon or earthquake that occurred October 25 will further minimize the likelihood of a meaningful response. I am not an alarmist, but I am alarmed. Radioactivity has been and continues to be released into the air and ocean. For instance, the Pacific bluefin tuna I ate recently had been caught off the coast of San Diego; a Stanford study has shown that all such tuna has 10 times the usual amount of radioactive cesium present prior to the Fukushima event in March 2011. I believe that our health is the great equalizer. In my clinical career, I have had the good fortune to care for the homeless and the disenfranchised and the rich and the famous. When one is lying in a hospital bed with those special gowns that are wide open in the back, everyone is pretty much the same. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat are gifts of life for all of us no matter what our creed or our color. I know that these precious gifts have been contaminated. The silence from the media and the powers that be has been deafening. The Chinese symbol for crisis is composed of two letters — one is danger and the other is opportunity. We have an opportunity to help the Japanese with the crisis in Fukushima. I want the best and the brightest that money can’t buy to be making those decisions. The time to act is now.

E BOWL GETS DONE UP FOR

DÍA DE LOS MUERTOS

C

onsider the over-the-top stage sets, delightfully out-there costume

choices, and abundance of candy skull paraphernalia, and it becomes hard to imagine a group more apt to headline the Santa Barbara Bowl’s first-ever El Día de los Muertos Celebration than The Flaming Lips. It’s fitting then that the Oklahoma City psych rockers hit town on the one day of the year devoted to memorializing, reveling, and partying in honor of the dead. “The planets most definitely aligned for this one,” said Moss Jacobs, VP of talent for Nederlander Concerts. Blessed with the “opportunity of a lifetime” earlier this year, Jacobs reached out to longtime friend and co-conspirator Nicole Pierpont, an artist and parttime Santa Barbaran who has spent years scheming with Jacobs about a big, creepy Halloween blowout at the Bowl. “Nicole is a half–El Salvadoran, half-Anglo-American; was raised in El Salvador; and she is extremely knowledgeable about Day of the Dead,” Jacobs said. “We didn’t want to do the vibeless plastic pumpkin thing that Halloween has become. We wanted an event that did justice to the culture and the community of Santa Barbara.” And an event it most definitely is. With Pierpont art-directing from afar, Friday’s celebration is quickly shaping up to be as extraordinary and extravagant as its headlining act. “We’re creating an altar in the Glen for all of the musicians who have played the Bowl that have passed away,” Pierpont explained. In addition to the overhaul of the venue’s famed Jerry Garcia Glen, decorations and art installations will be strewn throughout the space, including a pair of 20-foot skulls built by Santa Barbara artist Eric Lehman, handmade decor from S.B. High School’s VADA students, and the Santa Barbara High School Don Riders bike club, who will tow “mobile altars” around the venue. Also contributing to the takeover are Kalpulli Huitzilin Ihuan Xochitl Aztec dancers, Ventura-based traditional banda Zacamundo, pet altars made by the folks at Casa Dolores, and Santa Barbara nonprofit LifeChronicles, who will supply the face paint. Additionally, Pierpont hints at a surprise performance from Proximity Theatre Company, which she says showgoers will not want to miss. Attendees are also highly encouraged to dress up. “This is one show where you want to get there at 4 p.m., walk around, and really take it all in,” said Pierpont.“This isn’t the type of concert where you hang out for two hours, watch a band, and leave.” “I’m enjoying it because it’s bridging cultures. It just fits on so many levels,” adds Jacobs. “It’s The Flaming Lips. It’s the last show of the year. It’s the Day of the Dead. It couldn’t be more perfect.” L

ions and tigers and bears” may be a well-known Wizard of Oz recitation of the frightening creatures that lurk along the yellow-brick road, but to animal expert Jack Hanna, it is just a list of the critters he works with every day. Currently director emeritus at the Columbus Zoo, Hanna spends much of his time crossing the country with furry and feathered friends in tow, speaking at colleges and on TV talk shows in an effort to educate audiences about the world’s wild animals. Hanna’s love of animals was nurtured from his boyhood growing up on a farm in Tennessee; he was surround by beasties and even helped out the town vet when he was just 11 years old, mostly by cleaning cages. As an adult, Hanna and his wife owned a pet shop, but his dream was to work at a zoo. After a two-year stint as director of a small wildlife park in Florida, his life was changed when he applied to be — and was hired as — director of Ohio’s Columbus Zoo in 1978. Fame followed several years later. Hanna made his first TV appearance as a guest on Good Morning America in 1983. Two years later, David Letterman invited him and his animals to his show; they’ve been making regular visits with Letterman for nearly 30 years now. In 1993, Hanna became the host of Jack Hanna’s Animal Adventures, then Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild (2009-10), and now Jack Hanna’s Wild Countdown (2011-present). “When I first started, I never dreamed in a million years I’d be doing this,” said Hanna of his stardom and globe-trotting life. It’s a rigorous schedule, but Hanna has no plans to slow down. He and his wife, Suzi, who accompanies him on his adventures, recently filmed off the coast of Curaçao, where they swam with dolphins. “We also went in a submarine about 600 feet down — a four-man submarine, one of the newest in the world — and filmed fish and animals,”

Hanna said. “And then I’m leaving for Gabon in West Africa [to study lowland gorillas] a few days after visiting Santa Barbara.” In addition to exploring the world, Hanna brings his experiences to audiences across the nation in his Jack Hanna’s Into the Wild Live tour. “It’s for anybody from 3 years old to 100 years old,” he said. “I make it to where they learn something but have fun at the same time. I have six-minute segments from the over 400 shows I’ve done in the past 30 years. Then I’ll bring out three or four live animals, then I’ll show another video — of a baby bear we found in a cave with a mom or of a lady who raised a rhino by hand in east Africa, one of the only [hand-raised rhinos] in the world.” The animals rumored to be making an appearance in Santa Barbara include a kangaroo, mother-and-baby lemurs, a Siberian lynx, a porcupine, and an African serval cat (note: this list is subject to change). “The thing I’d like people to take away from our show is the fact that I’m not a doom-andgloom person,” Hanna explained. “My generation, the baby boomers, did more damage to the planet than any previous generation on earth, but these kids today are doing a tremendous job, and I want them to know that. Most of our shows this year are all sold out. People leave there being happy.”

Dos Pueblos, San Marcos, and Santa Barbara Girls’ Sports Teams Are Taking SoCal by Storm

anta Barbara high schools have a wealth of athletic talent coupled with a long-standing reputation of winning. This year, the area girls’ teams are taking Southern California by storm. Three standouts are Dos Pueblos High girls’ golf, which stands undefeated 14-0 overall and 8-0 league; Santa Barbara High girls’ tennis, which is 11-3 overall and 8-0 league; and San Marcos High girls’ volleyball at 7-1 overall and 4-1 league.

The Santa Barbara High girls’ tennis team is at its prime with 35 consecutive Channel League championships. “It feels good,” said senior Karina Thornton,“just keeping the history going.” Although the Dons lost to Corona del Mar Saturday, October 19, (10-8) the play was strong. Thornton and Lexy Gulden played solid doubles with a 6-3 win but a 7-5 and 3-6 loss at the net. “We played them so closely,” said Gulden. “We were really evenly matched, and if things would have gone a few points the other way, we would have had it.” years after that,” said The Dons are losing five seniors at the Dunn. “They will carry end of this season, which leaves big shoes on the Channel League to fill for the four juniors stepping up.

showed off their defense and offense strengths. The Dons couldn’t stop the Royals’ hitting power as the Royals played double Allens — with both Emily and her sister Chloe Allen on the court.“It was really good to come back in a really heated completion game,” said Emily.“My teammates were always there for me, so that was really nice.” Next year is looking like a young team, as nine seniors will be graduating this year. Allen is excited for the challenge and leading the team next year as this season comes to a close. “You never know after an ACL injury what you’re gonna get back,” said head coach Erica Downing.“It’s partly physical and partly mental. I think the mental side, [Emily] was not prepared. She came back a little nervous. But the physical side, she was prepared. She took all the right steps to put her body back into shape.” Not only does Allen bring a strong playing advantage to the court by creating plays; she also brings consistency and calmness, said Downing.“Emily is a one-of-a-kind kid that you don’t find often. [Her return] was perfect timing,” she said. “We were kind of still trying out different lineups. Having her come back was huge for us.” With the Tournament of Champions coming up, the team is preparing to take on the rival competition.“We grind pretty hard,” said Downing.“The Tournament of Champions is always fun. It’s local, and you get the best competition. In the last few years, we’ve started to become more competitive. I think this year, we should be the most competitive we’ve been in a decade.” The Royals will play in the Tournament of Champions November 1-2 at Santa Barbara High. The last few years seem to have been the best of the best for all three of the teams. With great team dynamics and experienced coaching staffs, the Santa Barbara area is keeping the tradition of being champions.

PUB GRUB: The new Fitzpatrick’s Tavern will have Irish eyes smiling, and everyone else thirsty for Guinness.

Solvang Gets Its IRISH ON

Raise a Pint at Fitzpatrick’s Tavern by Lauren Van Mullem

F

itzpatrick’s Tavern isn’t just the only Irish pub in Solvang; it’s the only farm-to-table Irish pub in America, says owner Patrick Hartmann, adding that it’s also the only place within at least thirty miles to get a perfectly poured pint of Guinness. As lively Irish folk music plays in the background, Hartmann explains that the perfect Guinness pint must conform to strict standards of execution. The required materials are a mix of nitrogen and CO₂ gases comingling in chilled lines between keg and tap, and a 20-ounce tulip pint glass. For demonstration purposes, I volunteer myself for a beer, and Hartmann obligingly fills it at the prescribed 45-degree angle until the foamy mass of bubbles reaches the top of the harp. He then sets the frothy pint down to rest for nearly two minutes. This, it turns out, is possibly the most important part of the Guinness pouring ritual: allowing the bubbles to settle,“to bring out the toastiness of the stout,” says Hartmann. This kind of precision can be found in every aspect of the Tavern, where attention to detail and efficiency come together to create an easygoing, unrushed atmosphere most restaurants take months to acquire. His servers sport iPad minis with which they send orders from the table straight to a printer in the kitchen. Even the menu items are precisely designed, like the Dubliner Burger, for which a local baker created a custom 100-gram bun to complement the 6-ounce patty, in order to achieve the ideal bun-to-meat ratio much sought after by hamburger aficionados. Similarly, the shepherd’s pie comes in a short, wide dish to ensure exactly one bite of fluffy potato topping

with every spoonful of rich, savory meat and vegetable filling. While these details are impressive, Hartmann’s passion is for his ingredients. He likes his beef grass-fed, alfalfa-finished, and dryaged; his produce organic and local; and his bangers free of nitrates, nitrites, antibiotics, and hormones. One might think that is a perfect recipe for overpriced pub-grub, but Hartmann says that the challenge he set for himself initially was to have top-quality ingredients and affordable, local-friendly prices. A few of the locals have already claimed their “regular” seats, so the plan appears to be working. Although you won’t find the tavern’s ivory walls plastered in shamrocks, nor the coppertopped bar festooned with Emerald Isle memorabilia, Hartmann has managed to create the genuine atmosphere of a friendly neighborhood pub. Just a few short weeks since opening, Fitzpatrick’s Tavern hums with local gossip, elderly couples bickering about who can claim the most Irish lineage, men catching up on the World Cup tournament over those perfectly poured pints, and old friends bumping into each other unexpectedly with loud and enthusiastic greetings. Handing a patron a Guinness, Patrick turns to me over his shoulder and says “This is why I started this place, right here.” The customer replies: “Best beer in the world.” We raise our glasses.

S

unday, they say, is the day of rest. But “they” clearly does not include the good folks at Crazy Good Bread or Goodland Kitchen, who’ll be serving up some serious gastronomic good times come the weekend’s end. One will mark an opening, one an ending, but both will leave your taste buds crying more, more, more! Read on, and then make your plans. You can rest another day. GET BREADUCATED: To mark its

grand opening, the crazy good people at Crazy Good Bread will host a free open house this Sunday, November 3, at their new Carpinteria digs. It’s dubbed a Holiday Breaducation: A Collaboration of Culinary Ideas, and in it they will helpfully offer ideas vis-à-vis what to do with their delicious loaves. Because, you know, bread can be confusing! I jest, of course (see: toast), but the event promises to be a delight for the palate, showcasing several local cottage artisans in addition to a flight through the CGB repertoire. Sample sweet and savory dishes featuring CGB varietals that include the basics, as well as such stunners as fig masala, orange chocolate, chocolate black pepper, pumpkin spice pecan, and rosemary olive — combined with and alongside goodies from Georgia’s Smokehouse, Rock Rose Provisions, Sweet Lady Cook, Casitas Valley Creamery, and more, not to mention beer from Island Brewing Company and wines from Carr Winery. And it’s totally legit to log an excursion to this event in the Holiday Shopping column: They’ll have gift baskets available for ordering, so you can get a tasty jump on the madness. Proceeds benefit Girls Inc. of Carpinteria.

CGB is located at 4191 Carpinteria Avenue, #12, Carpinteria. The event takes place Sunday, November 3, noon - 3 p.m.

GOODLAND’S LAST STAND: Okay,

not forever, but this Sunday evening marks Goodland Kitchen’s last Sunday Supper of the Season. And whether or not you’ve made it to one already (although, if you haven’t, let me be clear: You are missing out — amazing food, and tons of it, is served familystyle, in a casual, al fresco setting among fabulous people), this Sunday’s menu is the perfect excuse to get out there, as clearly they’re out to wrap the season up with a bang. Appetizers will include shrimp with gremolata and toasted breadcrumbs; fried artichoke hearts and herb aioli; and parmesan-crusted lamb chops. But save room, because for the main, expect rigatoni with tomato sauce and pecorino/Romano cheese; pork shoulder roasted in milk with Ellwood Canyon Farm fennel; risotto with pumpkin and spinach; and braised green beans from Givens Farm. And for the finale (did I mention you should pace yourself?): almond torte with winepoached pears and espresso-vanilla custard. And if that doesn’t leave you happily ready to hibernate for the winter, I don’t know what will. Goodland Kitchen is located at 231 Magnolia Avenue, Old Town Goleta. The Sunday, November 3, dinner begins at 5:30 p.m. (and it’ll get dark by 6:45, so bring a sweater!). $45 per person; byob. Call 845-4300 for reservations.

The Liquid Legacy of Louis Lucas

Santa Barbara Wine Country Pioneer Is Driving Force Behind Lucas & Lewellen Winery

I

by Matt Kettmann

n 1970, when Louis Lucas left his table grape–growing family in California’s hot Central Valley to try his hand at wine grapes in comparably cool Santa Barbara County, the 28-year-old Notre Dame graduate found himself staring at a blank canvas. Years before, a UCDavis study determined that the Santa Maria and Santa Ynez valleys might be suitable as wine regions, but only one commercial vineyard existed at that point: the Nielson Vineyard, planted in 1964 by two other Central Valley table grape/raisin guys, Uriel Nielson and Bill DeMattei, who also happened to be Lucas’s little-league coach. With just a couple vintages from only one vineyard to examine, no one knew what grapes worked where.“When we first got here,” recalled Lucas last week, in the midst of his 42nd Santa Barbara harvest,“the question was, ‘What to grow?’” With only the needs of dominant Napa Valley wineries as guidance, Lucas (whose first name is pronounced “Louie”) and his brother George planted a patchwork of grape varieties on 800 acres near the Santa Maria River, named it the Tepusquet Vineyard in an ode to the old Spanish rancho once there, and waited to see what happened. “We discovered that chardonnay and riesling were outstanding,” said Lucas,“and the pinot noir was exceptionally good, too.” The fruit was then all shipped north to be turned into wine — or what passed for wine, at least, in that much of the pinot wound up in something called “Eye of the Swan,” a sweeter blush made by Sebastiani. Lamented Lucas, “That’s what we were doing with pinot in those days.” Lucas managed to turn important heads with Tepusquet’s white wines, including a young Jim Fiolek, who was the head of the Santa Barbara County Vintners’ Association until earlier this year. Back then, Fiolek was working at Brinks Vintage Shop in La Cumbre Plaza, where Lucas would sometimes shop for bottles from around the world. Fiolek distinctly recalls a 1975 Tepusquet Vineyard chardonnay produced by Napa’s renowned ZD Winery.“It was better than anything coming out of anywhere,” said Fiolek.“That was a huge turnaround for me.” For Fiolek and many others, Lucas — who also advised the founders

of Bien Nacido Vineyards and oversaw the original KendallJackson plantings — was one of the first to show off the region’s potential for serious wines. Said Fiolek, “He’s certainly one of the pioneers in Santa Barbara County.” Today, thanks to the dogged and determined experimentation of Lucas and other pioneers of the early 1970s, the Santa Maria Valley and Sta. Rita Hills at the western edge of the Santa Ynez Valley are both internationally renowned for pinot and chardonnay; and the rest of Santa Barbara wine country, from the hills of Los Alamos to the gorges of Happy Canyon, is excelling at most everything else, from syrah, grenache, and other Rhône varietals to Italian grapes like nebbiolo and sangiovese. That even includes Bordeaux varietals like cabernet sauvignon, the grape that initially caught Santa Barbara a bad rap for red wines because it couldn’t get ripe enough at Tepusquet and other cool-climate vineyards, resulting in overly herbaceous, vegetal wines. That, too, was Lucas’s fault.“I gained everyone the reputation we have for cab here,” said Lucas, who eventually lost the Tepusquet Vineyard (currently owned by Cambria Winery) but acquired other properties along the way. “Now I am trying to go the other way.” A critical turning point in that shift was in 1996 when Lucas teamed up with his longtime friend, his occasional attorney, and retired Superior Court judge, Royce Lewellen. “In the 1990s, there were a lot of Napa people coming down here to buy vineyards,” said Lewellen, who’d been supporting Santa Barbara wine country since it began. “I kept telling Louis not to sell to those alligators.” Instead, Lewellen partnered with Lucas to form Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards, which today farms about 400 acres in three distinct regions: the Goodchild, High , and Old Adobe vineyards on Foxen Canyon Road in the Santa Maria Valley; the Los Alamos Vineyard, easily visible alongside Highway  just south of Los Alamos; and the Valley View Vineyard, in the heart of the Santa Ynez Valley on a prominent hillside overlooking the river, just east of Solvang. But the partnership wasn’t just about growing grapes: The first vintage of Lucas & Lewellen wine was released in 1999,

which meant that, after more than a quarFOOD ter century of just growing the grapes, SEE P. 65 Louis Lucas was suddenly in the winemaking business, too. Did that impact his vineyard work? “Yes!” replied Lucas with no hesitation.“I really get a chance to see how each parcel of our vineyard does. I can make adjustments on the vines to make our wine that much better.” That ground-to-glass ethos is a common refrain in the wine business these days, though usually its winemakers eventually grow closer to the vines, not the other way around. But Lucas’s grower-first, vintner-second pedigree is also what makes a visit to Lucas & Lewellen’s tasting room in Solvang such an eclectic treat: His constant quest to keep answering what grows best where means that they grow and produce more than two dozen different grape varieties, including a number of Italian wines that are served under the Toccata label, whose tasting room is just down the street. Altogether, the winery uses just more than half of the fruit that it grows to produce more than 30,000 cases a year under its three labels: Lucas & Lewellen, Toccata, and Queen of Hearts, a bargain brand. Some of the remaining fruit is sold to other California wineries, but Lucas & Lewellen’s facility at the end of Easy Street in Buellton also handles a good deal more of it, processing it to be sold to “bona fide wineries” around North America, with clients in Ohio, Texas, Arizona, cont'd >>>

Colorado, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Canada, where it gets delivered as a block of frozen, alcohol-free grape juice. “I don’t like the four-letter word ‘bulk,’” said Lucas, who sends the shipments in 275-gallon plastic bags housed in a cardboard frame.“We’re selling specialty wines.” That also includes a line of wine for Mission Santa Barbara (sold in the gift shop) and occasional celebrity brands, like the current pinot noir for Jane Seymour. In charge of the winery is Cal Poly–trained soil scientist Megan McGrath Gates, who briefly apprenticed under the project’s first winemaker, Dan Gehrs, but took over as top dog seven years ago. She shares an enthusiastic, exploratory spirit with Lucas, and the two can finish each other’s sentences.“You give into the process and let the grapes guide you,” said Gates, to which

Lucas added,“Let them be what they want to be.” And like Lucas, she smiles at the challenge of so many varietals.“It’s like climbing a mountain,” she explained.“One step after another, and you don’t look back.” That’s pretty much how Lucas has done it since 1970, and the key for Lucas & Lewellen Vineyards will be to keep that energy alive.“Louis is the driving force behind our business,” said Mike Lewellen, Royce’s son who began managing the operation almost five years ago, after 16 years at Territory Ahead in Santa Barbara. “His experience and background leads us to what we do.”

Felipe Hernandez’s Feliz Noche Wines

A

by Jeff Wing

t home in the Santa Ynez Valley, Felipe Hernandez is a stout, handsome, happy man in a broad white cowboy hat, sun-blanched blue jeans, and a faded workshirt whose buttons struggle valiantly to hold his rounded belly in abeyance. Three thousand miles away, at  Park Avenue in the heart of New York City, the Manhattan Racquet & Tennis Club’s members comprise the tippity-top of the East Coast’s cork-sniffing social register. Were Hernandez to stroll into the joint, the staring power-lunchers would — in between their delicately aerated sips of his celebrated Feliz Noche wines that appear on the menu — surely summon security with snapped fingers. Our rambling and eccentric Santa Ynez Valley has thus infiltrated Old New York’s cuff-link crowd like a Trojan horse; or Trojan emu, as it were. Hernandez, a former fugitive, has done well. “I cannot have a better feeling than what I have,” he says of his life.“I can tell you this much.” In 1972, the “Me Decade” was just getting underway and so was Felipe Hernandez. He left the sun-baked little village of Casablanca in distant Jalisco, Mexico, and began a furtive, 1,700-mile journey northward to the unknown. He was all of 16.“When I left, I was just a kid,” he said. “I’d never been out of my house, my village, in my whole life.” Dehydrated, exhausted, and starved, Hernandez and his cousin reached the lightly defended border after many days of travel on foot and otherwise. They waited ’til evening, gathered their courage, and crossed. Thus, historically, are empires born. Some days later, Hernandez arrived in Santa Ynez. He’s never left. He began as a field worker, planting grapes. In short order, he began to absorb more than the requisite knowledge of a field hand and found, to his surprise, he had an aptitude for the celebrated berry. By 1977, his talents had become manifest and he was given several parcels to manage. That year was a watershed. With the laudable blessing of his bosses, Hernandez enthusiastically began to experiment with winemaking. Many false starts and large dumps of palate-punishing juice later, he produced a drinkable zinfandel that stunned the locals. Fueled by the fulsome praise of his friends and neighbors, he took off like a bottle rocket. Today, Hernandez is an adored, near-legendary vintner in Santa Ynez, his story another star on the

flag of immigrant-American affirmation. His label, Feliz Noche, produces a cabernet sauvignon, a syrah, a riesling, a pinot noir, and a bottled ambrosia called Mi Pasión. These limited-run wines are high-endish and served in certain tony eateries whose monied, rightleaning patrons would likely not endorse Hernandez’s border-jumping and subsequent sideways entry into entrepreneurial largesse and, yeah, American citizenship. No matter. “I smile a lot. I’m a happy man,” said Hernandez. “I met my wife in the U.S. and we’ve got amazing kids, and she’s a wonderful, wonderful woman. So what can I tell you. It’s been a good journey for me here in this country.”

band, but after six years of juggling day jobs, evening practices, and trying to make rent, they realized SoCal maybe wasn’t the most sustainable option. According to Evan, the move back to Portland enabled the band to focus more on their music and on the group as a whole. “We realized even if it isn’t in the cards for us to do all that stuff — have hit songs and do a big world tour — none of us do this for a living; we still all have day jobs,” he explained. “We’ve reached a point over the past couple of years … and were really totally okay with it. In a way, it makes us able to enjoy the band even more because it’s not our job; it’s something that we do because we really love it.” Nowadays, the Red Heads are a solid quartet consisting of guitarist Sam Fowles, bassist Charlie Hester, Evan, and his wife, Brette Marie Way, who plays drums and shares vocal duty. One could even say they have a new addition to the lineup, as last year Evan and Brette Marie welcomed their first son, George, who now accompanies the band on tour. As far as the future goes, the Red Heads know one thing is for sure: more records, more shows, and continuing to do what they love.

riginating in Columbia nearly 30 years ago, ciclovías, or “bike ways,” has become something of an international movement. The events, which now take place around the world, call for the temporary closing down of streets and open up a public space for community members to be active and educated about public health. This weekend, Santa Barbara hosts its first-ever Open Streets ¡Calles Vivas! event, co-organized and coordinated by the Coalition for Sustainable Transporta-

tion (COAST). All day Saturday, November 2, community members and visitors are invited to take over the Funk Zone and participate in a handful of activities that include yoga and pilates, arts and crafts, street and stage music performances, a fashion show, healthy eating classes, and much more. S.B. Open Streets is free and will be held from 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. at Cabrillo Boulevard and Mason Street. For more information, visit sbopenstreets.org. — RC

KATY PERRY PRISM

This week, pop music phenomenon (and Santa Barbara native) Katy Perry released Prism, her highly anticipated and highly upbeat follow-up to last year’s Teenage Dream. Clocking in at just under 50 minutes, the 16-song album presents a slightly new side of the bubble-pop princess; layers of her past and present are peeled back and revealed on somber numbers like “By The Grace of God,” “Choose Your Battles,” and “Ghost.” We get hits of references to her recent divorce from actor/comedian Russell Brand, as well as her current beau, John Mayer. But don’t fear: No one’s taken the party out of this girl just yet. On “This Is How We Do,” Perry breaks it down S.B.-style with references to grubbing tacos at Super Rica and dancing at the Wildcat. Sure, there are cuts that register as just plain annoying (see: “Legendary Lovers” and the Juicy J duet “Dark Horse”), but the gems (like “International Smile,” “Birthday,” and newly minted hit single “Roar”) are solid guilty-pleasure tracks that only get better the louder you crank ’em and the harder you sing. — RC

They’ve brought us the ADaPT Festival and the Affinity Project, drawn artists from around the world to Santa Barbara, and pushed the edge of performing arts in this community. Continuing in the tradition of global and cross-genre artistic collaborations, ArtBark International presents Minty this Sunday, November 3. Here in town, the action takes place at Yoga Soup, where six dance and physical-theater groups will present fresh work. Yet part of the fun of Minty is the fact that the program isn’t limited to Santa Barbara; other companies will be performing on the same day in New York and in Celje, Slovenia. Not everyone can coordinate a show in three cities across the globe simultaneously, but for organizers Misa and Stephen Kelly, this kind of cross-cultural collaboration has become second nature. The couple specializes in drawing artists from around the world together for informal performances in intimate settings, and Minty is no exception. Santa Barbara audiences will be treated to a behind-the-scenes look at Southern California–based performing arts companies including BodySensate, Hidden Entropy Movement Project, and Nicole McKenzie Improv Group. Meanwhile, in Slovenia, ArtBark collaborator Mojca Majcen will present work she’s been developing in collaboration with Santa Barbara and New York artists thanks to Skype, YouTube, and email. Participants in New York have employed the same technologies to work with Santa Barbara artists on the material they’ll be showing. “We are actively building a network that provides artistic stimulation across borders,” Misa Kelly explained. “This cross-pollination induces creative growth, fosters creative excellence, and nurtures respect and tolerance for different perspectives.” Minty isn’t an endpoint; it’s a chance to witness works in progress. Eventually, many of the pieces shown this weekend will be developed into larger projects in their respective communities; there are plans for an evening-length ArtBark production to premiere in Slovenia in 2015 before touring to the east and west coasts of the United States. ArtBark presents Minty at Yoga Soup ( Parker Wy.) on Sunday, November 3, at 2 p.m. Admission is free, with donations accepted.

THE PARSON RED HEADS BRING NEW ALBUM TO MUDDY WATERS n their nine years together, The Parson Red Heads have migrated from the Pacific Northwest to Southern California, fought their way through the Los Angeles music scene, and returned home to Portland to make a fresh start. Earlier this month, the Red Heads released their third full-length, Orb Weaver, which finds the bandmates honing their sound and finding a balance between enjoying life and making music. Unlike their calming, quiet, and more-controlled back catalog, Orb Weaver is marked by a louder, rocking take on the Red Heads’ sweet folksy sound. In discussing its making, frontman Evan Way points to more improvisation as a guiding force. There’s also a looming psychedelic-rock influence, no doubt inspired by the band’s live show. “We try to do the best we can to represent where we’re at as a band at the time and make something that is pretty honest,” said Evan. “We just wanted to make a record that was a little more vibrant and dynamic than maybe what we’ve done recently; we wanted it to have higher peaks.” While living in L.A., the Red Heads played a handful of shows, toured, and made music, at one point even ballooning to a 15-piece

FAR IS BEAUTIFUL John Divola’s Distances

A

t 50 inches high by 119 inches wide, the color photograph “As Far as I Could Get,  Seconds, 12_15_2010, 3:29 pm to 3:42 pm PST” is big and even more packed with detail than its full title, which goes on to include geographical coordinates for the site where it was taken in Twentynine Palms. The silvery green leaves of a colossal stand of tamarisk trees spread abundantly from its center toward the edges of the frame, a riot of vegetation captured in stunning high resolution.Yet the title inevitably steers one’s attention away from the trees and toward the small figure of a man running at what appears to be full speed through a small opening between them. This is John Divola, and he’s right where he said he would be — 10 seconds of sprinting away from his own camera lens. “As Far as I Could Get” has to be one of the strangest and most memorable selfies ever taken. For John Divola, the length of a Myspace arm was clearly not far enough. This self-portrait of a man scrambling hard to get out of his own space — and not making it — is emblematic of a career dedicated to the proposition that “the beauty of photography is distance.” It’s appropriate, then, that “As Far as I Could Get” is also the title of a big new multi-museum show of Divola’s work concurrently on view at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and the Pomona College Museum of Art. Divola is one of L.A.’s most underrated artists, and the only obstacle to this trio of shows being considered a major retrospective is the 64-year-old artist’s discomfort with the term retrospective. Active in photography since the early 1970s, Divola has certainly earned the right to put off career closure by creating some of his most powerful works, including “As Far As I Could Get,” in this decade. If this haunting image of the artist in flight were all Divola had ever done, he would still deserve a place alongside both the Conceptualists who were his Los Angeles contemporaries in the 1970s and the nature photographers who are his precursors in the longer tradition of California photography. But Divola is as far as he can get from being a one-hit wonder, and as anyone who visits any of these three shows will discover, that running man in the middle distance has done much more with the camera than try to get away from it. By looking at his whole career up to now, as these three exhibitions and an excellent publication supervised by SBMA’s curator of photography Karen Sinsheimer invite us to do, we are in a great position to reevaluate not only his place in the pantheon of California artists, but also the emergent phenom-

JOHN DIVOLA

JOHN DIVOLA

by Charles Donelan

incorporating the artist’s hand in such a deliberately unpolished way within an image that’s also clearly a document of a specific time and place, Divola initiated his lifelong project of bringing abjection and anarchy within the perimeter of fine art. In other series, Divola demonstrates his fascination and his facility with the forms of unreality from different perspectives. In Artificial Nature, from 2002, he photographs Hollywood sets in such a way as to magnify their narrative implications. Something’s happening here, one senses, but what? In an untitled series from 1990, clouds of powder command the foreground, leaving only tantalizing glimpses of the landscapes beyond them. Divola may not be throwing dust in our eyes with these images, but he’s thinking about it. Perhaps the most successful, and unquestionably the most dramatic, images Divola has captured were taken in some abandoned houses in Malibu circa 1977-1978. The project dubbed Zuma brings all the advantages of color to bear on the subject matter of the previous series but adds in the crucial element of water, specifically views of the ocean at sunset as seen through the mostly broken windows of the structures. Employing flash to raise these decrepit interiors to equal status with the conventionally gorgeous views they command, Divola reinvents the Romantic trope of the open window. Carefully balanced, the Zuma pictures are full of nuance and as lyrical and picturesque in their way as any color photos taken in America at the time. The radiant colors of Pacific Ocean sunsets must compete with or complement the streaming spray-paint signatures that say,“Divola was here.” Surprisingly, the magnificent Zuma pictures are not the only climaxes in Divola’s long love affair with wasted spaces. Two recent series, Dark Star from 2008 and Theodore Street Project from 2013, find the artist again exploring abandoned buildings with both camera and paint in hand. It can be hard to suppress the thought that he shouldn’t be able to get away with it. How does someone sustain such a simple premise so effectively? In other words, what allows John Divola to keep shooting abandoned buildings for four decades without losing his edge? Yet upon entering the large gallery at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art RUN, FORREST: The image at top, John Divola’s photograph “As Far As where the Theodore Street images are hung, I Could Get, 10 Seconds, 12_15_2010, 3:29 PM to 3:42 PM PST, 34.166301,there’s a familiar and undeniable rush of 116.033714,” is a massive pigment print from 2010, and a kind of selfexcitement.

The image directly above is “Zuma #25” from his 1977 series and impermanence nevertheless satisfy depicting ocean views from abandoned Malibu properties. one’s deepest cravings for color and form in a way that is unmistakable and seemingly enon of “Pacific Rim existentialism” of which Divola is uniquely eternal. Like the running man in his elliptical self-portraits, or the wonderful running dogs of his series Dogs Chasing My Car in representative.

hat’s the difference between a puppet and an actor? Mark Down, artistic director of the London-based Blind Summit Theatre, has spent many years working with both, and he has made some insightful discoveries along the way. “A puppet is instantly appealing, almost in the opposite way of an actor,” he said. “In the best situations, an actor onstage grows on you as you get to know them. With a puppet, it’s immediate candy, but the interest passes. “One of the things we have found is the more the puppet says, ‘I’m just a puppet — none of this is real,’ the more interesting things become. Audiences grow more and more attached to him the more he protests that they shouldn’t. It’s a sort of paradox.” HELPING HANDS: Blind Summit’s The Table is a So prepare to grow unnaturally attached Bunraku-style puppet show starring a cantankerous to Moses, the Blind Summit creation who cardboard-headed character named Moses in a story will make his West Coast debut on Wednesinspired by Beckett, the Bible … and IKEA. day, November 6, in UCSB’s Campbell Hall.

O

n a Monday in October at 4:30 in the afternoon, the theater at Santa Barbara High School buzzes with half a dozen different constructive activities. And I do mean buzzes — and constructive — as one of the most noticeable things happening onstage is a young man welding. Not 20 feet from where this safetyhooded figure solders pieces of metal, a dance rehearsal with choreographer Christina McCarthy goes on. As the dancers in their sweats practice a combination, the giant tabloid newsPYRAMID SCHEME: Camille Umoff papers with headlines (center) as Velma Kelly with Drew Janssen about murder and (left), Malcolm McCarthy (bottom), Nolan scandal sit suspended McCarthy (right), and Ciara Tolliver (top) overhead; suddenly, star in the SBHS production of Chicago. things start to make sense. We’re in Chicago — not the Windy City, but the Broadway show, which plays at Santa Barbara High School Theatre November 1-10. And we’re not through with the tour, because set designer Ingrid Holden has just walked up with a pair of ink- and blood-stained dresses — original costumes designed for this production by Lise Lange. Otto Layman, performing-arts chair at SBHS and the director behind Chicago, explains the concept. “These are based on Kafka’s story ‘In the Penal Colony.’ Like the prisoners in the story, who are tattooed to death with descriptions of their crimes, our prisoners are going to be wearing costumes covered in writing and newsprint. Their crimes are written on their costumes,” he says. It’s a bold approach and a total departure from the standard, which is of course the iconic black fishnets and red lipstick associated with the show’s original choreographer Bob Fosse. And that’s Layman’s intention. He says this Chicago will not be “a Fosse knockoff or a movie homage,” referring to the 2002 film adaptation starring Renée Zellweger and Catherine Zeta-Jones, which won six Academy Awards, including Best Picture. Under Layman, the Santa Barbara High theater program has become one of the most productive performing arts organizations in the city, with an average of four shows a year, including both serious straight plays like God of Carnage and The Glass Menagerie, the studentprogrammed Music of the Night, and two fully-staged musicals per year.“I don’t mind raising the money as long as I have the kids,” Layman explains, adding, “because I love the form of the musical.” The cast and crew typically spend eight weeks preparing the fall show and 10 on the show in the spring. It’s a massive effort that makes huge demands on virtually every member of the team, but then there’s always the cast party to look forward to, and then the excitement of casting for the next production.

IF YOU BUILD IT

Santa Barbara Guitar Bar Sets a New Standard PETER VANDENBELT

by Aly Comingore

I

f you’re in the market for a guitar shop, you pretty much have two choices. Option one is big, sterile, and tends to reference words like “Center” or “Depot” in the signage. Option two is small,“boutique-y,” and more often than not comes with a built-in intimidation factor. Now, enter Santa Barbara Guitar Bar. Envisioned and realized by S.B. native and longtime gear slinger Jamie Faletti, it’s the latest addition to the much-hyped Anacapa Project, the Funk Zone complex which is also the home of The Lark, Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company, and Les Marchands. Just two months in, the Guitar Bar is already living up to its snazzy new neighbors and boasting one of the most beautiful, artfully designed, and welcoming setups this side of State Street. “Most music stores are not particularly inviting,” said Faletti, speaking last week from the slick white chairs that sit at the center of the Guitar Bar’s showroom. “They tend to have a ton of low-end and just a bit of high-end stuff. I wanted to flip that over.” As such, the Bar is boasting a veritable treasure trove of musical goodies. Above the checkout, shredders and future shredders can ogle — and test-drive! — all sorts of limited-edition electrics. There’s also a full wall devoted to showcasing bright and shiny new Taylor acoustics. And starter guitars start at a super reasonable $145. “If you’re a beginning guitar player, I can set you up with something great, but I’m not going to bombard you with 500 choices for a $200 guitar,” said Faletti. On the other end of the spectrum, the owner and manager points to a signed Ibanez Jem VaiK DNA edition, which retails for $15,000 and includes a psychedelic-swirl paint job made (at least partly) of guitarist and designer Steve Vai’s own blood. “You would have to be a total guitar nerd to want that thing,” Faletti laughed. “It’s ridiculous.” Still, the Guitar Bar’s inventory is only a fraction of the story. At the heart of the building and its conception is Faletti, a Santa Barbara lifer who has spent more than two decades working in and managing music shops.“I started at Fancy Music on State Street when I was 18 or 19 years old, and I’ve worked at a bunch of stores since then,” he said, “And here I am, 25 years later.” His vision for the Guitar Bar, he explains, has a lot to do with taking the pretension out of the shopping experience. “A lot of stores, you go in, and there’s this weird club mentality. If you’re not one of the locals in that store, you kind

The new music shop opened its doors in the Funk Zone in September as part of the Anacapa Project. of feel like you’re getting sized up,” he said.“My thought is, everyone who comes in here, whether they’re an 85-yearold woman or a five-year-old boy, we want to treat you with respect and show you the stuff you’re interested in, but most importantly, we want you to have fun.” And on the aesthetic level, fun is clearly priority one. Step inside the Guitar Bar, and you can’t help but stare agape. Rather than a checkout register, there’s a stainless steel “bar” for customers to sit at and interact with employees over. At the center of the space sit two midcentury chairs, a couch, and a coffee table, replete with reading material for those waiting in the wings. The store’s Yanonali Street side even boasts a stage for folks who want to test their new axes out in the spotlight. There are three beautifully framed rooms, where Faletti is offering private vocal and guitar lessons, as well as two “super soundproof” spaces for customers who want to crank things to 11. “You can go in there, plug into an amp, and just wail and no one out here would know,” he laughed. In the coming months, the Guitar Bar will also roll out a “give back” program through which they’ll donate a kid’s starter guitar for every high-end guitar sold. “By far, my favorite type of sale that I’ve ever done is a kid’s first guitar. One time I even let a kid trade in his video game,” said Faletti, recalling a young boy who approached him with $40, an Xbox, and a desperate plea. “That he was that into it, I just wanted to get the thing into his hands.” According to Faletti, the program will kick off at the start of 2014. ’Til then, the Guitar Bar owner and his growing clientele are keeping busy getting comfortable. “The neighbors are awesome. It’s a big lovefest down here,” said Faletti of his new digs. “It’s unlike anything in my life, other than my kids. It’s the closest to what I completely wished for. Every way I look I think, ‘Ah! That’s exactly what I imagined!’” And the customers? They’re loving the space, too. “We’ve had some impromptu jams break out in the middle of the room already,” said Faletti. “That’s the point, though. If you’re a musician, you should want to hang out here.” october 31, 2013

ll Is Lost is filmmaking stripped down to its bare bones. One character. One setting. One problem. In the wrong hands, it could feel like a thought experiment or a dramatic exercise. But lucky for us, this isn’t the case. Written and directed by J.C. Chandor (Margin Call) and starring Robert Redford (who, pushing 80, gives one of the finest performances of his career), All Is Lost is a manOUR MAN: Robert Redford gives the performance of a lifetime versus-nature story where both man in his battle against nature in All Is Lost. and nature are more than worthy matches for one another. We meet “Our Man” (as he is noted in the credits) first way with a quiet and steady competence that feels more in voice-over as he composes a farewell message in a bottle heroic than anything we’ve seen Marvel’s The Avengers do to his loved ones. We then flash back eight days earlier and to date. From a stylistic standpoint, All Is Lost reads kind of bear witness to the first of the story’s troubles — a renegade like a novel in reverse; we get bombarded with visuals, but freight container that collides with Our Man’s yacht, little to go on in the way of dialogue. Like Ryan Gosling’s punching a hole into the hull. Things grow steadily worse no-name driver in Drive, Redford’s character is a man of from there. Imagine every terrible thing that can happen little words. (He gets less than three minutes of talking to a man in the middle of the ocean; most of what you just time here.) It is a rare film that dares to make its audience imagined happens over the course of this film’s hour-and- work this hard and trusts its viewers to be this smart. Intellectually, emotionally, though, it’s a tough watch. But if they 40-minute runtime. As the lead, Redford handles every obstacle flung his endure it, All Is Lost rewards its viewers handsomely. ■

Flint Lockwood scores his dream job but leaves when he finds out that his most problematic machine is still running — and wreaking havoc.

A young man’s unrealistic expectations make it impossible for him to form a real relationship — even when his dream girl comes along.

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Once when I was hiking through Maui’s rain forest, I spied a majestic purple honohono flower sprouting from a rotting log. As I bent down close, I inhaled the merged aromas of moldering wood and sweet floral fragrance. Let’s make this scene your metaphor of the week, Aries. Here’s why: A part of your life that is in the throes of decay can serve as host for a magnificent bloom. What has been lost to you may become the source of fertility. Halloween costume suggestion: a garbage man or cleaning maid wearing a crown of roses.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): What don’t you like? Get clear about that. What don’t you want to do? Make definitive decisions. What kind of person do you not want to become and what life do you never want to live? Resolve those questions with as much certainty as possible. Write it all down, preferably in the form of a contract with yourself. Sign the contract. This document will be your sacred promise, a declaration of the boundaries you won’t cross and the activities you won’t waste your time on and the desires that aren’t worthy of you. It will feed your freedom to know exactly what you like and what you want to accomplish and who you want to become. Halloween costume suggestion: the opposite of who you really are.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Are you up for an experiment? Not just on Halloween, but for a week afterwards, be scarier than your fears. If an anxious thought pops into your mind, bare your teeth and growl, “Get out of here or I will rip you to shreds!” If a demon visits you in a nightly dream, chase after it with a torch and sword, screaming “Begone, foul spirit, or I will burn your mangy ass!” Don’t tolerate bullying in any form, whether it comes from a critical little voice in your head or from supposedly nice people who are trying to guilt-trip you. “I am a brave

your actual life right now. Could you somehow use it in designing your Halloween costume?

(June 21 - July 22): Are you ready to be amazed? Now would be an excellent time to shed your soul’s infantile illusions … to play wildly with the greatest mystery you know … to accept gifts that enhance your freedom and refuse gifts that don’t … to seek out a supernatural encounter that heals your chronic sadness … to consort and converse with sexy magical spirits from the future … to make love with the lights on and cry when you come. Halloween costume suggestion: the archetypal LOVER.

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): What do you think you’d be like if you were among the one-percent-wealthiest people on Earth? Would you demand that your government raise your taxes so you could contribute more to our collective well-being? Would you live simply and cheaply so you’d have more money to donate to charities and other worthy causes? This Halloween season, I suggest you play around with fantasies like that — maybe even masquerade as an incredibly rich philanthropist who doles out cash and gifts everywhere you go. At the very least, imagine what it would be like if you had everything you needed and felt so grateful you shared your abundance freely.

LEO

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

(July 23 - Aug. 22): Some people in your vicinity are smoldering and fuming. The air is heavy with emotional ferment. Conspiracy theories are ripening and rotting at the same time. Hidden agendas are seeping into conversations, and gossip is swirling like ghostly dust devils. Yet in the midst of this mayhem, an eerie calm possesses you. As everyone else struggles, you’re poised and full of grace. To what do we owe this stability? I suspect it has to do with the fact that life is showing you how to feel at home in the world no matter what’s happening around you. Keep making yourself receptive to these teachings. Halloween costume suggestion: King or Queen of Relaxation.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): What if you had the power to enchant and even bewitch people with your charisma? Would you wield your allure without mercy? Would you feel wicked delight in their attraction to you, even if you didn’t plan to give them what they want? I suspect these questions aren’t entirely rhetorical right now. You may have more mojo at your disposal than you realize. Speaking for your conscience, I will ask you not to desecrate your privilege. If you must manipulate people, do it for their benefit as well as yours. Use your raw magic responsibly. Halloween costume suggestion: a mesmerizing guru; an irresistible diva; a stage magician.

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): In the course of earning a living, I have worked four different jobs as a janitor and six as a dishwasher. On the brighter side, I have performed as a songwriter and lead singer for six rock bands and currently write a syndicated astrology column. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you Aquarians are primed to cultivate a relationship with your work life that is more like my latter choices than the former. The next eight months will be a favorable time to ensure that you’ll be doing your own personal equivalent of rock singer or astrology columnist well into the future. Halloween costume suggestion: your dream job.

VIRGO

SAGITTARIUS

PISCES

(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): I had a dream that you were in the film O Brother, Where Art Thou? You were like the character played by George Clooney after he escaped from a prison chain gang. Can you picture it? You were wearing a striped jailbird suit, and a ball and chain were still cuffed around your ankle. But you were sort of free, too. You were on the lam, making your way from adventure to adventure as you eluded those who would throw you back in the slammer. You were not yet in the clear, but you seemed to be en route to total emancipation. I think this dream is an apt metaphorical depiction of

(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Author Robert Louis Stevenson loved the work of poet Walt Whitman, recommending it with the same enthusiasm as he did Shakespeare’s. Stevenson also regarded Whitman as an unruly force of nature, and in one famous passage, called him “a large shaggy dog, just unchained, scouring the beaches of the world and baying at the moon.”Your assignment is to do your best imitation of a primal creature like Whitman. In fact, consider being him for Halloween. Maybe you could memorize passages from Whitman’s Leaves of Grass and recite them at random moments. Here’s one: “I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable, / I sound my barbaric YAWP over the roofs of the world.”

CANCER

(Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Unification should be a key theme for you in the coming weeks. Anything you do that promotes splicing and blending and harmonizing will get extra help, sometimes from mysterious forces working behind the scenes. The more you work to find common ground between opposing sides, the stronger you’ll feel and the better you’ll look. If you can manage to mend schisms and heal wounds, unexpected luck will flow into your life. To encourage these developments, consider these Halloween disguises: a roll of tape, a stick of Krazy Glue, a wound that’s healing, a bridge.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): I invite you to try the following exercise. Imagine the most powerful role you could realistically attain in the future. This is a position or niche or job that will authorize you to wield your influence to the max. It will give you the clout to shape the environments you share with other people. It will allow you to freely express your important ideas and have them be treated seriously. Let your imagination run a little wild as you visualize the possibilities. Incorporate your visions into your Halloween costume.

Wineries/Tasting Rooms

When a restaurateur like Mitchell Sjerven of bouchon and the Wine Cask raves about a wine, one should listen, which is how this pale yellow, vividly refreshing vermentino from Blair Fox’s organically hand‑farmed family property in the Santa Ynez Valley wound up in our glass. Often, this white Italian varietal can be so subtle that it’s almost tasteless, but that’s far from the case here, from the light lime spritzer aroma and slight salinity on the tongue to the surprisingly long finish. No wonder Mitchell serves it as a pairing to scallops, but it’d be mighty fine to toast the end of summer with this on a hot front porch as well. Take this review to their tasting room in Los Olivos for a free sample of this soon‑to‑be‑gone wine. See blairfoxcellars.com.
