The Santa Barbara Museum of Art congratulates our Docents for being recognized as “Local Heroes.� Since 1968 this group of dedicated volunteers has served as the voice and heart of the Museum, reaching out to families, schools, community groups, adults, and seniors.

Today they number 101 with almost 70 members actively touring in the galleries, and giving presentations in school classrooms and senior residences. The over 18,000 hours they give annually represent tours, research, and training, and are the equivalent of almost 8 fulltime employees. Our Education programs could not reach the 40,000 people we do each year without their contribution.

When someone begins a new job, typically they are allotted some “learning curve” time. Well, that’s not at all what happened when Rachel Gantz was hired as an ad designer in early October. In fact, she jumped in during The Indy’s biggest issue of the year — Best Of. But despite being thrown into the deep end, the cat-loving Long Beach State graduate wasn’t frightened off. Rather, she has quickly become a beloved member of the Ad Pro team. Her sunny personality and arty ways — she is a master with colored paper and a glue gun, oh, and graphic design — are a delightful addition to The Indy family.

11,500 Shades of Grey Undersheriff Resigned Amid ‘Sexting’ Scandal; Department Faces Possible Lawsuit

PHILANDERING BY PHONE? Former undersheriff Jim Peterson (left) has been accused of sexual harassment by former Search and Rescue volunteer Valerie Walston (right). In a graphic 17-page claim filed with the county, Walston alleges she and Peterson exchanged thousands of texts over the course of a year and that Peterson wanted them to refer to each other as “Christian” and “Anastasia” from the novel 50 Shades of Grey.

BY T Y L E R H AY D E N

hen Undersheriff Jim Peterson suddenly retired last month from the Santa Barbara Sheriff ’s Office, after more than 30 years as a respected lawman and two and a half years as Sheriff Bill Brown’s second-in-command, there was little fanfare and even less explanation. He gave Brown his notice on October 14, notified staff via email on the 15th, and was gone by the 16th. The official statement from his department was that he left for “personal reasons.” However, a claim filed with the County Clerk’s Office on November 15 — the first step in the process toward a civil lawsuit — may explain Peterson’s quick and unceremonious departure. Valerie Walston, a former spokesperson for the all-volunteer Santa Barbara Search and Rescue team, is alleging that Peterson made aggressive and unwanted sexual advances toward her (which she relented to out of a reported fear of losing her job), that he promised to get her promoted if she slept with him, that she was actually demoted then relieved of all Search and Rescue duties when their relationship ended badly, and that the Sheriff ’s Office failed to properly investigate the ongoing harassment. The allegations are laid out in a shockingly explicit 17-page document drafted by Walston’s attorney, Garry Tetalman, who declined to discuss the matter when contacted, instead

requesting without explanation that The Santa Barbara Independent delay the article for “a couple of weeks.” The claim is for “well in excess of $10,000,” according to its cover sheet. (Any amount less than $10,000 would be handled by small claims court.) Though the document is available to the public, The Independent has decided not to publish it because of its overly graphic and lurid nature. During an initial conversation with Walston, she avoided questions about the circumstances surrounding Peterson’s retirement and expressed surprise at the suggestion he had engaged in inappropriate conduct with a member of the department. She also claimed she was still the Search and Rescue team’s marketing officer. Walston has not returned multiple calls and emails for comment since then. Those with knowledge of the affair, but are not authorized to speak to the media about it, say Walston was actually the aggressor in the relationship, that she pursued Peterson so he would promote her. County Counsel Dennis Marshall said his office is currently looking into the case but can’t talk about pending litigation. “Stay tuned,” he said, noting such complaints are inherently onesided. Peterson’s attorney, Chris Kroes, said he was unable to comment at this time. And Sheriff Bill Brown issued this statement to The Independent on Friday: “The Santa Barbara Sheriff ’s Office holds all of its members to the highest professional standards. As soon as

allegations of sexual harassment were brought to my attention, I initiated an internal affairs investigation that was led by a respected, independent investigator from outside our organization. The narrative attached to the plaintiff ’s tort claim is an incomplete representation of what transpired when compared to the results of our investigation. Due to the threat of a lawsuit, I am unable to comment on any specifics at this time, but if the matter proceeds to litigation, the rest of the story will be told.”

A

fter a background check and five months of training in 2010, Walston — a self-described “city girl”— became a certified member of the Search and Rescue team (SAR) and was eventually named its chief spokesperson. Before that (according to her online résumé), she had worked as a freelance publicist and social media consultant, a press secretary for Senate candidate Bill Jones, a communication manager for the University of California, and briefly as a freelance producer for Fox News and a deputy press secretary for the Republican National Committee. She graduated with a BA in political science from Sweet Briar College, a liberal arts women’s school in Virginia. Walston attacked her new SAR job with an enthusiasm — wearing her uniform and gear to official functions and peppering the community with media releases and Facebook posts — that both impressed and annoyed her colleagues. cont’d page 12

news briefs LAW & DISORDER

Santa Maria resident Osvaldo Hernandez, the second suspect in an 11/6 stabbing near the Chumash Casino who evaded authorities after the first suspect’s arrest, was arrested by Sheriff’s detectives on 11/21 in Santa Maria. A known gang member, Hernandez, 35, was booked into Santa Barbara County Jail at $1 million bail on charges of assault with a deadly weapon, robbery, kidnapping, attempted homicide, and a gang enhancement. On 11/6, a Nipomo resident was stabbed in a car near the casino, and his wallet and cell phone were stolen; he was treated at the hospital. Detectives saw the two suspects driving later that day and followed them on a highspeed chase; one suspect, Cherie Rodriguez, was arrested, but Hernandez got away. Evan Githens, a 28-year-old Santa Barbara man who led authorities on a high-speed chase in a stolen truck in October with a woman and two young children in the car, pleaded no contest to multiple felony counts. Those counts — child endangerment, vehicle theft, evading officers with willful disregard for public safety, and hitand-run causing injury — on top of Githens’s admission to prior convictions for elder abuse and witness intimidation and a previous prison sentence, will earn him 10 years in state prison. Githens’s formal sentencing is scheduled for 12/5.

Police arrested two gang members on 11/20 after one of them allegedly tried to grope a woman walking down the street while the other man prevented her from getting away. Edgar Rojas, 18, and Jose Moran, 19, were both arrested for felony sexual battery and booked into Santa Barbara County Jail at $25,000 each. Rojas was also charged with resisting or delaying an officer, and Moran with carrying a concealed dirk or dagger and possessing a vandalism tool. The 52-year-old female victim was walking down the 300 block of South Voluntario Street after getting off a bus when she was accosted. The Santa Barbara County Search and Rescue team rescued two hikers in the New Cuyama area after an overnight search that ended Saturday morning at 8 a.m. The wife of one of the hikers — who were two men, ages 59 and 66 — called 9-1-1 at 7 p.m. on Friday evening after her husband and his friend had not returned home from a day hike near McPherson Peak. The Search and Rescuer all-volunteer team responded to Aliso Park — located five miles southwest of New Cuyama — after Sheriff’s deputies located the car the pair had arrived in, but were unable to find the men nearby. After searching all through the night, rescuers found the men uninjured in deep brush on a slope. In an effort to save time, the hikers said, they went off the trail and ended up in the rugged area without overnight gear. Ahead of the City Council’s closed-session meeting on Tuesday — during which the proposed gang injunction was discussed — Pro-Youth Movement, an organization formed to find different ways to deal with the city’s at-risk youth and cofounded by Councilmember Cathy Murillo, sent a letter to the council and other city officials that outlines its issues over what the injunction could include. Among the group’s concerns with the proposed injunction

— which will be ruled on in court in March — are the number of individuals it could target and whether it will affect them while riding public transportation or taking their kids to school. The full letter is at independent.com/opinions.

CITY The Santa Barbara Foundation announced it will soon team up with the Silicon Valley Community Foundation to handle its administrative and back-office duties. Four Santa Barbara Foundation employees will be laid off under the partnership, a change referred to as “the transition of four positions” in a statement released by Jan Campbell, the nonprofit’s senior vice president of philanthropic services, communications, and marketing. Peter MacDougall, chair of the foundation’s board of trustees, said the axed positions are in technical support in the financial area. “A determining factor in the Santa Barbara Foundation’s board decision to restructure and outsource some administrative functions is a trend within the social sector to collaborate and partner with organizations with similar or complementary missions,” Campbell wrote in a statement. “Reducing overhead ultimately drives more impact to those served.” MacDougall added there will be annual salary increases for all employees in January.

Quite a few champagne bottles were popped last Thursday night to celebrate the grand opening of Surgical Arts on State. The facility will bring two cosmetic plastic surgery practices, a dermatology practice, and a fertility center under one roof. The Art of Plastic Surgery, Montecito Plastic Surgery, Pacific Plastic Surgery, Aloe Dermatology, and Southern California Reproductive Center will all serve clients at the boutique medical center on the 1700 block of State Street. Over 100 physicians and guests — including Mayor Helene Schneider — snaked through the open house and toured the renovated building while sampling hors d’oeuvres. “It’s been a longtime dream of mine to build a full lab [in Santa Barbara],” said Dr. Wendy Chang, a fertility specialist.

COUNTY As of 11/25, three UCSB students have been diagnosed with meningococcal disease, a bacterial infection that can cause widespread blood infections or meningitis. The outbreak — three cases define an outbreak — began on 11/11 and now includes two males and one female. The most recent case was confirmed on 11/18. During a press conference last Thursday, the County of Santa Barbara’s Deputy Health Officer Charity Thoman said blood tests were being conducted on other students considcont’d page 12 

hat should Channel Islands National Park look like 50 years from now? Should the islands be easier to visit and explore? Should there be jeep tours? Should there be a small hotel and café out there? More campgrounds? More trails? More research facilities? These and every other question about the archipelago, which is located across the Santa Barbara Channel and known as “California’s Galapagos,” are being pondered right now, as the National Park Service seeks feedback on the long-term management plan for the park, one of the nation’s most pristine yet least visited. The environmental report on that plan was recently released, offering three alternatives: The first would do nothing different, the second would enhance the protection of natural and cultural resources, and the third, which is currently the preferred alternative, would enhance those protections while also boosting access, educational, and recreational opportunities. The plan, which has been under development since 2001, will also designate large portions of the islands as official wilderness areas, meaning that development would be blocked there. “The National Park Service really needs public input on this planning process,” said park spokesperson Yvonne Menard. “It’s an important time for people to make their comments, and it’s fairly easy to do.” Comments can be submitted via the Internet, through the mail, or in person at one of the upcoming meetings on Tuesday, December 3, 6-8 p.m. at the park’s visi-

Though visitor numbers at the islands are still low compared to other, more easily accessible national parks, Menard did say that visitation has steadily increased, especially on the outer islands of Santa Rosa and San Miguel, thanks in part to the addition of a third boat by the Ventura-based concessionaire Island Packers. “They’re kind of infectious,” said Menard.“Once you visit, you’re locked in for life. Each island has its own face. It’s like having five individual national parks in one.” Visit nps.gov to see the plan and learn more. ■

This year’s election turnout — 38.3 percent — may have been the lowest since the city began conducting its elections exclusively by mail, but Santa Barbara’s turnout was still twice as high as the average for 19 other California jurisdictions holding elections at the same time. Of 20 municipal governments GETTING IN CHARACTER: City Hall’s assistant city throughout Southern administrator Marcelo López sported an election-night California, voter turnout stars-and-stripes necktie. in Santa Barbara was by far the highest. In Ventura, it was 26 percent, in Palos Verdes 20, in Palmdale 11. Seventeen of the 20 jurisdictions reported turnouts lower than 30 percent; 12 were below 20 percent. “For an off-year, 38 percent is good,” said Marcelo López, assistant city czar. When the all-mail ballot was introduced, the promise was cheap and easy elections with high voter turnout. After all, voters would have 30 days to fill out their ballots and mail them in. Four years ago — the city’s first all-mail election — that promise seemed fulfilled as 49 percent of registered Santa Barbara voters turned in ballots. However, that same year an out-of-town billionaire spent $750,000 trying to unseat the council’s liberal majority and voters also confronted a ballot initiative asking if the city’s maximum building height should be lowered. (Both the billionaire and the height restriction lost.) “This year’s was not a contentious election,” López noted. “If you want people to turn out, you need issues. Issues drive voters.” But if the City Council wants to increase voter turnout, he added, the cheapest and most effective way is to hold city elections the same time as state, federal, and county races. Since 1993, when City Hall has held special on-year elections, López said, turnout has jumped dramatically, almost always by double digits. Driving the question has been cost. For years, city elections were administered by the County Elections Department, but when the bill jumped to $600,000 per election, officials at City Hall experienced sticker shock and decided to go it alone. The all-mail approach is much cheaper — this year about $210,000 — but if the city held its elections in conjunction with state and federal races, the price tag, López said, would drop to $50,000-$70,000. Seven years ago, city voters rejected a proposed charter amendment to hold elections on even years, swayed by arguments that the idiosyncrasies of local politics could get lost in the shuffle of state and federal issues. López didn’t believe that then and remains unconvinced. Santa Barbara voters, he said, are uncommonly tuned in. “The old adage — Nick Welsh that all politics is local is especially true in Santa Barbara,” he said.

Later the same day, UCSB spokesperson George Foulsham said one of the three diagnosed students has recovered, and a second was excepted to be discharged from the hospital. The third — freshman Aaron Loy — continues to receive treatment. Sansum Clinic arrived at an agreement with UCSB over employees enrolled in the new UC Care plan who seemed poised to either lose their existing coverage or be forced to travel to UCLA to get it. Concern over this loss has been the subject of ongoing tensions, pitting many senior faculty members against the administration and Sansum.

Napolitano made a point not to make her visit a media event. While on campus, she made it clear she wants more community-college students transferring to UC schools. Some campus

(She even authored a piece for this newspaper as part of a search and rescue cover story in August 2011.) So it was of little surprise when, in October 2012, Walston put in an application to become the Sheriff ’s Office public information officer (PIO), “which was her dream job,” according to the complaint. “For Ms. Walston, everything took a turn for the the worse once she met the then Undersheriff Jim Peterson,” it reads. That introduction took place on October 31, 2012, during the Isla Vista Foot Patrol’s Halloween operations. Peterson told Walston he knew she had applied for the Sheriff ’s PIO job and that he thought she did “very well” during her mock TV interview. They would talk several more times that night. Three weeks later at the annual SAR dinner in Buellton, Peterson told Walston she “looked beautiful,” but he later explained she didn’t get the PIO job. Walston said she broke down in tears and walked out of the event. The next day, Walston emailed Peterson to apologize for crying. This started a flurry of emails back and forth that began professionally enough but then reportedly descended into subtle flirting and outright sexual advances. “I hate it when my mind begins to wander …,” Peterson wrote, among other innuendos: “Sounds to me that there are 32 lucky guys out there,” in reference to the 32 male SAR volunteers. Peterson then asked for Walston’s personal cell phone number so he could text her a photo of the San Francisco ers. (They had discovered they were both fans of the Bay Area football team.) Thinking it was somewhat strange, Walston nevertheless decided to oblige because “she believed that if she was friendly with Mr. Peterson, he would be a good ally to have in her corner,” reads the claim. Over the course of the next 10-12 months, Peterson and Walston exchanged over 11,500 text messages, the claim alleges. Attorney Garry Tetalman stated all the messages have been obtained by the Sheriff ’s Office and that his office has copies, as well. In an early correspondence, Peterson reportedly told Walston that he intended to run for the County Board of

Supervisors and that he planned on retiring from the Sheriff ’s Office [SBSO] in the spring of 2015. Soon thereafter he asked her “to speak French to him.” In the complaint, Walston says she told Peterson their exchanges were inappropriate, that she was in a committed relationship, and that he was a married man and her supervisor. Peterson responded that she should use a “safe word” if he started to cross the line. They decided it would be “Bill Brown.” Peterson also reportedly wanted them to refer to each other as “Christian” and “Anastasia” (the two main characters from the novel Fifty Shades of Grey) and asked Walston to keep their texting a secret. After more back-and-forth throughout November 2012, Walston — reportedly fearful that if she did not engage in the banter that Peterson would “become angry with her” and do something to hurt her career —“made the decision to humor him” and texted that she “could let her guard down a little.” At this point, the claim alleges, the messages from Peterson became “extremely sexually explicit.” The day after Thanksgiving, Walston informed Peterson that she was going to apply for the PIO position again. “Just don’t hold it against me if I apply with the [Sheriff ’s Office] again,” she wrote.“(Hell, maybe it’ll help haha.)” The claim states Walston was referring to what she thought was an innocent friendship. Peterson responded: “It will definitely help.” Walston answered back:“Then I’ll have to be even nicer!” Again, the claim states,“Ms. Walston was referring to maintaining a platonic friendship with Mr. Peterson. She had no intention of engaging in a sexual relationship with him.” A few days later, Peterson asked Walston if she would like to go on a walk with him. Walston suggested they have dinner instead. Later that week, Peterson reportedly texted Walston pictures of himself “in different states of arousal” and asked that she send him photos back. “Ms. Walston complied, not wanting to upset him given the fact that he was clearly drunk,” the claim states. Walston reportedly reminded Peterson over and over that she had cont’d page 15  a long-term boyfriend

The Islamic Society of Santa Barbara (ISSB) is one step closer to getting its Goleta community center — the first permanent place of worship for Muslims in the county — after the city’s Planning Commission voted unanimously Monday night to pass the project along to the Goleta City Council. The 4-0 vote (Commissioner Meg West wasn’t present) came as a sigh of relief for the project’s proponents — dozens of whom attended the ALL SMILES: Islamic Society of Santa Barbara meeting to voice their support cofounder Mukhtar Khan celebrates with his daughter, — who have been waiting for Dalia Khan, after the Goleta Planning Commission the mosque since the developers voted unanimously to send the proposed mosque filed an application in 2003. project to the City Council. Approximately 30 people — including ISSB members, area religious leaders, and locals unconnected to the project — argued the community center’s case to the commissioners, lauding the number of other houses of worship in town while lamenting the lack of a designated space for the Muslim community, which currently meets at the Goleta Valley Community Center. “It’s so beautiful that one city can be so diverse and inclusive,” said the daughter of ISSB cofounder Mukhtar Khan, Dalia Khan, who began to cry during her speech. “But why are the Muslims left out? The Muslims in this city have the right to a place to worship.” Mukhtar Khan, referencing the mosque’s components, said, “This project fits the land, and this center fits our city.” After undergoing several iterations over its years of planning, the project — slotted for the corner of Los Carneros Road and Calle Real — would be a two-story building just under 10,000 square feet, featuring a prayer area as well as a dining room, library, and lecture hall. The 42 parking spots attracted the most criticism — a few Goleta residents who live nearby worried that number was unrealistically low and that visitors would park on the street. Concerns about the sounds from bells and calls to prayer (which the developers said aren’t part of the ISSB’s plans) were raised by a few people. According to city staff, the center is not expected to have substantial effects on mountain views or traffic. The City Council will have the final say at a date to be determined. — Lyz Hoffman

Sansum Gets into Health-Care Exchange

S

BY N I C K W E L S H ansum executive Kurt Ransohoff announced Friday that Sansum Clinic has finally struck a deal with one of the three health-care insurance exchanges selling policies on the Central Coast as part of the troubled Affordable Care Act, a k a CoveredCA. com in California. Ransohoff said Sansum negotiated an agreement with the Blue Cross PPO, meaning that individuals purchasing this policy can seek treatment with Sansum medical professionals. Because it’s a PPO policy — as opposed to an HMO — subscribers can also seek treatment outside of Sansum, though the network of health-care providers is expected to be relatively narrow. It remains uncertain which doctors — outside of Sansum’s network — are part of this system. Ransohoff said many medical professionals might not know themselves. Until Sansum struck a deal with the Blue Cross exchange, Sansum — by far the biggest medical-care provider in the county — was off-limits to health-care consumers required to obtain new insurance policies by the Affordable Care Act. When enrollments began October 1, it came as a shock to the community at large that none of the three exchanges offered in Santa Barbara by Covered California had signed service agreements with Sansum. At that time, Ransohoff disclosed he’d been notified by the exchange providers that Sansum was not included, in part because Sansum had not responded to letters of inquiry the

exchanges had sent. Ransohoff noted that there was no record of such letters ever being mailed to Sansum. Far more problematic in terms of subsequent negotiations has been the issue of reimbursement. Ransohoff said that the exchange providers serving Santa Barbara — Blue Cross and Blue Shield — were offering to reimburse Sansum at unacceptably low rates. Then as now, Ransohoff has shied away from divulging actual numbers, but others at the clinic have suggested the exchange providers were offering to pay Sansum 40 percent less than what the clinic takes in from insurance providers now. Ransohoff said he was not at liberty to reveal the terms and conditions ultimately agreed to with Blue Cross, but said,“We found a point in the middle we could agree to.” No deal, however, was arrived at with either of the two other exchanges, Kaiser or Blue Shield. Kaiser does not provide care to Santa Barbara, so its loss will not be felt. Sansum’s Ransohoff warned that the news is so sufficiently fresh that it will take the Covered California website a couple weeks at least to reflect this. He noted that in District  — Santa Barbara, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo counties — 1,500 individuals enrolled in one of the three exchanges during the month of October. What the projections were for that month, he did not know. Of those, he said 80 percent ■ needed no subsidy.

Freeway-Widening Food Fight Intensifies COMMON SENSE 101’S TROIKA: (from left) Jeremy Lindaman, Ron Pulice, and Jack Overall.

T

BY N I C K W E L S H he political food fight that is the freewaywidening and carpool-lane project for Highway  got bigger and badder this week with new combatants entering the fray and the established players upping the ante. At issue — broadly put — are the $500 million plans to expand the freeway from Montecito to the Ventura County line, what’s included in that plan, and how long it takes for the proposed project to become actual construction. Thursday morning, the Santa Barbara County Association of Governments — SBCAG — heard from a wide array of stakeholders. Pushing for speedy resolution were representatives of various chambers of commerce who argued that the freeway project needs to be built posthaste to alleviate the hellacious congestioninduced delays that Ventura County residents experience as they drive to and from their Santa Barbara and Goleta jobs. A speaker for the Carpinteria Chamber expressed concern with the existing left-hand off-ramps in Montecito — the focus of much of the debate — describing how several boardmembers had experienced near misses with drivers who were surprised that the ramps were on the left side of the road instead of the right. While these ramps are hardly the only bone of contention, they have gotten the most attention. Common Sense , a group of well-heeled and politically connected Montecito residents, has argued that left-hand ramps should be

retained over Caltrans’s objections. Contrary to Caltrans’s assertions, they claim, the ramps are as safe or safer than 90 percent of the off-ramps throughout the South Coast and that the freeway widening would be completed much faster and $60 million cheaper if they are not replaced. Supervisor Salud Carbajal took Caltrans to task — yet again — for failing to provide a detailed analysis of these claims. Unless Caltrans provided a case-by-case analysis of the collisions that have taken place at these off-ramps — and that analysis demonstrated a real safety issue — he warned that the SBCAG board might vote to challenge the environmental impact report on the freeway widening Caltrans is eager to certify. Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider pressed Caltrans district director Tim Gubbins to pledge that he would not certify the environmental report until after SBCAG meets on December 19. Gubbins agreed to hold off until after that meeting. If Common Sense  were to get its way — and the left-hand ramps were retained — then Caltrans could not install a carpool lane through Montecito as it has always planned to do. Some alternative transportation supporters showed up on behalf of the carpool lane, arguing that to truncate it at the most congested stretch of freeway would render the entire effort a huge waste of time and money. Without the carpool lane, these speakers said, they never would have supported the sales tax measure to fund the freeway widening in the first place. ■

‘Sexting’ Scandal cont’d from p. 12 (another Sheriff ’s Office employee) and that Peterson had his family to worry about (including a son who works in the County Jail as a Sheriff ’s custody deputy). At one point, Peterson texted,“My wife and I have an arrangement and understanding. Hahahaha.” He also said he had a vasectomy and that he was “pretty sure” he did not have any children he did not know about. Walston asked Peterson if “she was the first girl at the SBSO he liked,” the complaint reads,“and he responded in the negative indicating that he had done this in the past.” Attorney Tetalman states in a footnote after this entry: “We are aware that Mr. Peterson has had affairs within the SBSO in the past and yet was not reprimanded for this behavior. Should this matter go to litigation, we will be investigating this further.” Tetalman further alleges that “other Sheriff ’s Office employees began to notice that Mr. Peterson had a thing for Ms. Walston.” They reportedly advised her that Peterson was not to be trusted and that she should keep her distance. In early December, Peterson asked Walston to delete their text messages, later suggesting they meet at the FedEx Kinko’s parking lot on Hope Avenue to discuss the PIO position. There, Walston asked why Kelly Hoover had been hired as the PIO over her, and she wondered aloud if her and Peterson’s relationship had hurt her chances. He told her it hadn’t and that he could indeed help her with her career. They took a picture together and parted ways. Two weeks passed before Peterson and Walston rendezvoused again, this time in the parking lot of the Santa Ynez Apartments in Isla Vista. They talked more about the PIO position and drank wine together. The next day, Peterson reportedly ordered Walston to delete their text messages, which she didn’t do. Shortly thereafter, they went to go see a production of West Side Story in Los Angeles, met again in the Kinko’s parking lot to drink mimosas, and arranged to see each other in the Costco parking lot in Goleta.

B

y the end of January, the complaint asserts, the pair were meeting regularly in other out-of-the-way locations where they would “kiss, grope, and fondle each other.” The claim goes into great detail on these encounters, describing Walston as an unwilling and powerless victim. Walston’s attorney said she started seeing a psychiatrist around this time who prescribed anti-anxiety medication,

that she broke up with her boyfriend, and was starting to pull away from friends and family. “She loved her job so much and really wanted to advance her career with the SBSO,” he wrote, “but realized that the only way that this was going to safely happen had nothing to do with her merits, but rather if she complied with what Mr. Peterson demanded from her.” More of these “dates” occurred over the next few months, mainly in the back of their cars. On April 26, during the California Undersheriff ’s Conference at the Fess Parker DoubleTree hotel, Walston met Peterson at his suite. Then on July 28, 2013, at a dinner with Sergeant Sandra Brown and another SAR member, Walston was told Peterson had lied to her about the PIO position (how, exactly, is unclear), and later that evening, Walston forwarded Sgt. Brown several of the nude photographs Peterson had sent her. Sgt. Brown, who is running against Sheriff Bill Brown in next November’s election, informed Walston she was contractually obligated to report Peterson’s actions to her supervisor. She did so, and an investigation was launched into the affair. Walston told Peterson about the pending inquiry, to which Peterson reportedly responded, “Well, I’m fucked.” Between August 2 and September 23, Walston was interviewed a number of times by Sheriff ’s officials, who also downloaded the texts from her phone, including exchanges with SAR member Stephen Allcott. Walston’s attorney says her communications with Allcott were outside the scope of the permission Walston had given. In early September, the decision was made to eliminate the Search and Rescue PIO position and that all of the group’s communications would go through current Sheriff PIO Kelly Hoover. Walston was made SAR’s marketing officer at that time and told any information she distributed needed to be approved first. On October 22, both Walston and Allcott — a 27-year veteran of the team — were relieved of all of their SAR duties. “Ms. Walston’s ‘termination’ on October 22, 2013, was clearly pretextual due to the fact that she was forced to engage in a sexual relationship with Mr. Peterson,” the claim’s narrative concludes.“Finally, as a result of everything that has happened, she has also been blackballed in the community and lost everything that she had held so dear to her.” ■

Diablo Canyon:

Mad Dogs and Crazy Chickens

joke: A man goes to the doctor and says, “My wife’s crazy. She thinks she’s a chicken.” The doctor scratches his chin and asks, “How long has this been going on?” The man says “Two years,” prompting the doctor to ask why the man hasn’t come sooner. “Doc,” the man says, “we need the eggs!” For some reason this gag wouldn’t stop bouncing around my brain during the rainy drive back from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) meeting held in San Luis Obispo late last Wednesday night. Whenever the NRC comes to town, it’s always to talk about the Diablo Canyon nuclear power plant 100 miles up the road. In this case, it was to discuss the environmental consequences of declaring Diablo Canyon a de facto nuclear waste storage site for the indefinite future, something never contemplated when the plant was first licensed and approved many eons ago. It’s nothing personal. The NRC has been forced to do the same thing with every nuke in the nation ever since the Obama Administration pulled the plug on the national nuclear waste depository slated for Yucca Mountain four years ago. In case you’re worrying, don’t bother. The punch line is that the NRC conducted a thorough and exhaustive one-size-fits-all “generic” environmental review and concluded the consequences of this major policy shift are so infinitesimally “small” they can’t even be measured. That’s true if the waste is stored at Diablo “indefinitely” after the plant shuts down, the report concluded, or merely 60 years. While this seems certifiably crazy, it didn’t account for my chicken-and-egg perseverations. The passage of 25 years notwithstanding, I have never gotten over the fact that the NRC allowed PG&E to build its twin reactors at Diablo Canyon 90 miles up the coast after the Hosgri fault was discovered — to everyone’s surprise, shock, and horror — just a couple of miles off the coast. At the time, Hosgri was deemed capable of generating a 7.5-magnitude earthquake, but since then, the threat potential has been downsized to 6.5. Even if Diablo Canyon qualifies as one whacked chicken, there’s no disputing its prodigious egg production. Diablo Canyon pumps $920 million a year into the San Luis Obispo economy, generating $25 million in annual tax revenues for local schools and local governments, and 1,500 jobs that pay real middle-class wages. It generates enough electricity to allow 3 million Californians to boil water and watch TV at the same time. While the carbon footprint of any nuclear power is much broader than the electricity produced on-site, there’s no denying that nukes burn conspicuously cleaner when it comes to greenhouse-gas emissions. Diablo Canyon operators boast that if they cooked the same amount of juice using conventional means, they’d be spewing 7 million tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere a year. Though you couldn’t tell from last week’s meeting, there are growing signs that Diablo Canyon’s days may be numbered. In recent months, the San Luis Obispo county supervisors expressed official concern they have too

many eggs in Diablo Canyon’s basket and need to look seriously at diversifying their portfolio. About the same time, the Regional Water Quality Control Board issued a multibillion-dollar come-to-Jesus warning, notifying PG&E it will have to (eventually) cease and desist sucking in 2.5 million gallons of seawater every day to

But mostly, the overwhelming sentiment was anti-nuke and anti–Diablo Canyon. At times, the theatrics got a little thick. One Native American claimed his family lived continuously on the site for 20,000 years — a claim I suspect defies archeological verification — and they had yet to give PG&E permission to turn their land into a BRIAN BULLOCK / SANTA MARIA TIMES

SHAKE ’N’ QUAKE: Everyone knows the old

FOR KEEPS: Despite passionate opposition, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission is poised to conclude nuclear waste can be stored indefinitely at Diablo Canyon with environmental consequences so small they can’t be measured.

cool the plant. The problem is that 19 billion fish larvae also get sucked up and few survive the trip through Diablo Canyon’s intricate network of pipes. Adding insult to injury, the water is 20 degrees warmer when it gets dumped back into the ocean. Depending upon whom you ask, the fix will cost anywhere from $1.6-$4.5 billion, huge by any standard. Add to that intensifying concern over seismic risks posed by offshore faults recently discovered just 600 yards offshore from the plant, and the cost of doing business could get too high for even PG&E. Last week’s NRC meeting was packed. More than 200 people braved the season’s first rain to deliver their two cents’ worth, despite a painful PA system with too much reverb, echo, and feedback. For nearly six hours, it went,’til almost midnight. Twenty NRC employees — from Dallas, Texas, and Washington, D.C. — were on hand to take down every word. A healthy smattering of pro-nukers showed up. Diablo Canyon employees were conspicuous in their good manners, invariably thanking speakers from the other side — even those inclined to shout truth to power rather than speak it — for engaging in “a robust” discussion of the issues. Several young eager beavers representing an obvious industry front group reminded us how nukes produce 60 percent of “clean-air” electricity. Yes, there could be an “incident” at a nuclear power plant, they allowed. But climate change absolutely will kill 4-5 billion people.

permanent nuclear dump. Several banged the doom ’n’ gloom gong, predicting Fukushima can still turn Japan into a wasteland and force mass evacuations along the West Coast. An unreconstructed hippie named Walking Turtle who carried an ornately feathered talking stick took to the podium. Her father, she said, died of cancer at age 51 after cleaning up the A-bombed remains of Nagasaki at the end of World War II. There was the goofy guy representing the Order of the Nukes Templar — wearing a paper bag on his head, painted to look like a knight’s helmet. But there was nothing silly about his point. “No one has the right to light matches they can’t put out for 250,000 years,” he said, referring to one of the estimated life spans attributed to “spent” nuclear fuel. The NRC staff listened politely. But it was clear 10 months from now the “no problem” environmental analysis will be ratified and codified. Ironically, the only issue on which there was general consensus from both sides was that the NRC should require PG&E to accelerate the speed at which it removes spent fuel rods from the two fuel pools at Diablo Canyon and load them into the 135-ton concrete and steel dry-storage casks that have been approved for the site. Fuel pool fires have the potential to be globally catastrophic events, and ever since one of Fukushima’s fuel pools caught fire — if only for a few hours — people have grown increasingly impatient and anxious.

The fact that Diablo Canyon’s fuel pools now store four times the number of spent fuel assemblies than the NRC initially licensed them to hold has only added fuel to the critics’ ire. The NRC has insisted that Diablo’s steel-reinforced fuel pools — nestled snugly 40 feet into the bedrock — are just as safe as dry casks and can safely accommodate the increase in volume by reconfiguring how the assemblies are racked. As far as the 13 earthquake faults in the area, the NRC is confident the plant can handle the worst they can dish out. It’s worth noting that the California Energy Commission has been pushing PG&E to speed up the transfer to dry-cask storage every year for the past five years without result. For the past two years, U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein has done the same, also with no effect. It’s worth noting that one day after last week’s NRC hearing, Senator Barbara Boxer blistered both Diablo Canyon and the NRC while addressing the Committee on Environment and Public Works. Boxer was pissed that the NRC just adopted new regulations all but making its records off limits even to members of Congress who represent states with nuclear power plants. When Boxer’s staff went to search the NRC files, they were told they could be searched to make sure they weren’t stealing anything. As for Diablo Canyon, she said, “Serious questions have been raised regarding whether this facility meets the NRC license requirements.” That comment stems from a red-flag report issued last January by Dr. Michael Peck, who for the previous five years had served as the NRC’s resident inspector assigned to Diablo Canyon to ensure plant safety. Peck issued what’s called a “non-concurrence report” expressing his doubts that Diablo Canyon could safely shut down in response to increased ground shaking caused by the fault discovered five years ago a few hundred yards off the coast from the plant. It’s worth noting that Peck’s superiors have emphatically disagreed and insist that Diablo Canyon is engineered to withstand quakes 10 times stronger than any of the nearby fault lines could inflict. In fact, last October, they issued an edict to just that effect. Peck, however, remains unpersuaded. In his 30-year career as a nuclear inspector, he pointed out, he’s written only two such reports. Lest he be dismissed as another sky-is-falling crackpot experiencing a midlife crisis, the NRC saw fit to reassign Peck to the college where new NRC inspectors are taught how to inspect nuclear power plants. Disagreements among highly trained professionals are, of course, inevitable, and this could be one of those. But on the crucial issue of seismic safety, I’d say the NRC and PG&E are sending out discordantly mixed messages. On one hand, every time I call either agency, I am told extensive, multimillion-dollar studies are currently underway to determine just how much ground shaking the newly discovered fault line can actually inflict. But that information is not assembled, and no decision is possible until some time in 2015. Okay, but if that’s the case, how is it that the NRC can justify issuing a fatwa, as it did last fall, saying don’t worry, be happy? In the meantime, one speaker at the NRC hearing suggested that it will take about 50,000 generations before the nuclear waste stored at Diablo Canyon is rendered safe. That’s kind of extreme, he said, to boil water for 50 years. I don’t know if that’s precisely true. But I do know you can boil a lot of eggs in 50 years. But only if you have a few crazy chickens running around.

W

ell, here we go again with talk of a county split. South County has the population and tourism to support the ability to be a county of its own. North County, with a lower population density and much less tourism, would have difficulty standing on its own. Its needs are much more agricultural, and there is no desire for urbanization. It more closely resembles San Luis Obispo County, and if a county split ever did actually materialize, North County should merge with S.L.O. — Ed Geswein, Lompoc County.

was taking my turn at the automatic postal machine in San Roque Post Office’s lobby with a rather heavy Halloween parcel, so the postage was over $12. When I reached into my pocket for my credit card, I pulled out my gold library card — drat. Instantly, a young gentleman patiently waiting behind me whipped out his credit card and put it in the slot. Between my protests and “thank you,” he mentioned he was a teacher and was hoping the bid he and his wife had made on a house would be accepted that morning. I hoped so also. Such a generous act to a stranger should be rewarded. — Jane Fehrenbacher, S.B.

s children, the last thing my father said before turning in at night was “Tap ’er light,” a phrase miners used when placing dynamite. His father was a Harvardeducated mining engineer and foreman of one of Ana-

conda, Montana’s deep copper mines. A PBS documentary cleared up a mystery for me. After Grampee died, he was never really spoken of in the family. I knew he had been an alcoholic and had spent a lot of time with his “men.” I think now that he chose to spend time with the brave men who endured hardship and lack of safety over his family, knowing my grandmother, homeschooled and musically trained on a sheep ranch, would be able to handle three children. She managed to save enough money to send two sons to Harvard and a daughter to Wellesley in the middle of the Depression. My Uncle Oliver headed jet engine development for GE in WWII, became a Quaker, and used his vibration-theory education to analyze violins for the University of Delaware. The other son, my father, made a lot of money for a lot of people in Southern California and played cello in the UC San Diego orchestra, and my aunt Eleanor married her brothers’ high school friend, the dean of the Colorado School of Mines. My life in music started at 3 hearing my grandmother play the piano in Anaconda, where we lived for one year near the end of the war. Our family owes a lot to Senator — Julie Rodgers, Lompoc W.A.

When RFK Came to Town

BOBBY AT THE COURTHOUSE: As I joined

4,000 people jamming the Courthouse Sunken Gardens to hear barnstorming Robert Kennedy, who among us could have dreamed that he’d be dead a few days later? On that hot, sunny day, May 28, 1968, Kennedy, his eye on the presidency, was surrounded by Santa Barbarans reaching out, pawing and cheering, others jeering and sneering. Only a month earlier, civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr. had been shot to death, but there in the peaceful heart of Santa Barbara, Kennedy plunged into the crowd, showing no fear. He was smiling, shaking hands, excited by his quest to pick up the fallen torch left by his brother, President John F. Kennedy, assassinated four years earlier in Dallas. Bobby Kennedy, a charismatic ball of boundless energy and bursting with reformer zeal, had a behind-the-scenes brusqueness and my-wayor-the-highway attitude that rubbed many the wrong way. The Sunken Gardens was full of vocal backers of Senator Gene McCarthy, who’d launched a seemingly hopeless youth-based, antiwar primary campaign to unseat President Lyndon Johnson. But after LBJ did poorly in the New Hampshire primary of March 1968, Kennedy jumped into the race (and LBJ jumped out), infuriating the McCarthyites. To them, Kennedy was a

compromiser, a Bobby-come-lately who lacked the fire to end the Vietnam War. To them, McCarthy was the noble warrior on a white horse. They didn’t trust Kennedy to end the war and bring the boys back home. Some of the signs that day read “Cop Out with Bobby,” “Sell Out with Bobby,”“Go Home, Bobby, Wherever That Is,” and “RFK Is Neville Chamberlain.” McCarthy signs seemed to outnumber Kennedy’s. Around the country, students shaved their beards and cut their hair to be “Clean for Gene.” Protesters marched in Washington, yelling “Hey, hey, LBJ, how many kids have you killed today?” about his bombing campaign. As Kennedy, wearing a white shirt and tie, spoke that day, I heard someone growl,“It’s like a Beatles concert. They didn’t come to listen; they came to scream.” McCarthy folks hooted when Kennedy tried to speak. Those who couldn’t find a place to park left their cars in the street. One woman left her convertible in a red zone in front of the police station. Cops handed out at least 235 tickets and easily could have written double that. I saw some little kids crawling through the crowd to get to Kennedy’s feet. I looked twice. They were my children. “I looked on him as a god,” said my precocious, politically aware son Barclay, then 9. In retrospect, it’s hard to understand why Kennedy aroused such hatred. He stood for social justice

and an end to racism. It was no barn burner of a speech. No “Out of Vietnam Now!” rhetoric. The strongest applause came when he spoke out against unilateral withdrawal of U. S. troops from Vietnam. South Vietnam, he said, must realize that “we can’t win the fight for them. They must do their part.” A teenage blonde rushed up to her mother.“I shook his hand! I shook his hand!” Her mother seemed happy for her, although Mama was sporting a McCarthy button. Kennedy, crushed by adoring fans as he left, jumped into a waiting convertible and was last seen heading down Anacapa Street. “He’s asking for it,” someone muttered. The KENNEDY AT THE COURTHOUSE: During the Kennedys and FBI director J. Edgar Hoover heated battle for California in the 1968 Democratic shared no love.

HEROES AMONG US

The Santa Barbara Independent ’s 28th Annual Celebration of Outstanding Santa Barbarans by Kelsey Brugger, Aly Comingore, Charles Donelan, Brandon Fastman, Tyler Hayden, Lyz Hoffman, Shannon Kelley, Matt Kettmann, and Nick Welsh photos by Paul Wellman

W

hen Florence Nightingale proclaimed that “the greatest heroes are those who do their duty in the daily grind of domestic affairs whilst the world whirls as a maddening dreidel,” she summed up the essence of The Santa Barbara Independent’s 28th annual Local Heroes honorees. The folks being recognized this year include a woman who has devoted her life to caring for foster children; a dentist who brought proper oral care to rural Afghanis; an animal advocate who cares for and rehabilitates

injured birds; two men who are redefining and teaching young men what it means to be a man today; and a group of volunteers who share their love and knowledge of art with visitors to the Museum of Art. Each year we are humbled by the giving nature of these people and organizations, and we are always reminded that their civic involvement, spirit of support, and genuine care for neighbors keep our community’s heart beating. Read on to learn about these outstanding individuals who make up 2013’s class of Local Heroes.

HATHOR HAMMETT

Multitasking Volunteer

I

’m just one of those people who can’t sit back and let things happen. There’s always something I can do.” Hathor Hammett’s words couldn’t be truer. For the past 35 years, Hammett has volunteered for the Rape Crisis Center, where her work includes planning activities for Sexual Assault Awareness Month every April. She started working there, she said, after two of her friends were raped and murdered in the 1970s.“I promised my friends who died that I would always be part of the movement,” said Hammett, who has also sat on the board of the Santa Barbara Women’s Political Committee for a decade. For Take Back the Night events, she donates her musical skills — she plays the drums and the guitar — and for people who are dying, she donates her voice as a member of the Threshold Choir, the Santa Barbara chapter of which she helped found. The choir, she said, comforts people with everything from hymns and Broadway tunes to Beatles songs and their own original music. For the past six years, Hammett has put her mask-making skills to use at Solstice, helping craft colorful works of art that she said are “fun and liberating,” especially for shy people like herself. The longtime Santa Barbaran — who also works as an organic gardener and sits on the committee for the LGBTQ Film Festival — said this community is a big reason why she gives back: “It’s where I feel like my niche is.”

JAMES ROLFE

Dogged Dentist

D

r. James Rolfe has dealt with a car bombing and two scam artists — among other hurdles — in his years-long quest: to provide the people of Afghanistan with proper dental care. Rolfe first visited the country in 2003, bringing a portable dental operating system on the plane with him, and after that initial visit, he realized he wanted to do more. The Afghanistan Dental Relief Project was born. Rolfe has fought many battles and spent many dollars — $100,000 a year — to get his Kabul clinic opened, but he has also helped treat more than 100,000 people, who before would have to get their abscessed teeth pulled sans anesthesia at the local barber. Rolfe, whose Santa Barbara dental office — which he built himself and is replete with musical instruments and potted plants — sits next door to the Lobero Theatre, said that most of Afghanistan’s dentists practice in the cities, while most of the people live in the rural areas. To solve that, Rolfe’s clinic not only serves citizens — mostly women and children — but also trains them to become dental hygienists. His project is hard work, the 74-year-old said, but the clinic should be fully sustainable in a year. “This is all something that happened because I decided to make it happen,” he said.“Each of us has the opportunity to do with our lives what we want to do. I went there to see what I could do.”

DARCY KEEP

Mental Health Advocate

D

arcy Keep starts about three months out, organizing artists, creating flyers, designing posters, and ordering custom T-shirts. For more than a decade, Keep has kept the annual Mental Health Arts Festival humming, every year pouring thousands of dollars of her own money and months of her time into its success. All of her hard work — which she emphasized is supplemented by that of 15 to 20 volunteers — is, she said, always all worth it.“If you could see how happy it makes [the artists], you would never not want to do it,” said Keep, who reignited the festival after it had stalled for a few years. Every October, 60 to 70 Santa Barbarans with mental illness participate, displaying in De la Guerra Plaza their paintings, drawings, origami, and jewelry. “It’s one of the ways to de-stigmatize mental illness,” she said.“Our goal is to try to change people’s perspective.” Keep, who has worked as Cottage Hospital’s director of Inpatient Psychiatric and Chemical Dependency Services since 1998, when she moved here from Fresno, said that volunteering is her favorite way to stay busy and that if everyone were to do so — for whatever cause — it would make a huge difference.“I feel really fortunate in life, which makes me want to give to other people,” she said, pointing to a collage hanging on her office wall showing photos from prior festivals.“If you could just see the smiles on their faces — it’s so gratifying.”

EMMA-JANE HUERTA

Theater Mentor

I

love my job!” says Emma-Jane Huerta. It’s this genuine enthusiasm for teaching — and for theater — that makes her such a hero to the Peabody community, where, for 15 years, she has run the Upstarts Youth Theatre program. A thoughtful mentor to the stars and the backstage crew alike — often working as the sole “grown-up” with 30 kids — Huerta does double and triple duty: writing the scripts (it’s the rare kids’ plays that keep the parents entertained, too); coaching the actors; managing the costumes, scenery, and music; and even doing the publicity and overseeing ticket sales. It’s a labor of love, and she really loves it.“I get to work with fresh young minds every day. I see kids’ imaginations come to life as they realize the power they have as performers, as storytellers. I’ve been telling stories my whole life; now I get to create fantastic productions while instilling in all my kids a passion for theater,” she said. “The kids in Upstarts learn so much more than producing a play — responsibility, teamwork, empathy, camaraderie, selfconfidence, and the amazing payoff that all their hard work brings on opening night. These are qualities that build great humans, not just great actors. … I am so proud of all of them. I feel like I have hundreds of children!”

GABRIELE DROZDOWSKI

Bird Woman of S.B.

W

hen the warm currents of 1991’s El Niño upset the balance of our coastal ecosystem, many seabirds were left starving, injured, or both, and the Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) was overwhelmed. Years earlier, Gabriele Drozdowski and her husband had received an aviary, a castoff from friends. Someone at the Wildlife Conservation Network heard about it and called to see if they’d consider taking in some birds. They said yes. “Our first was a big brown pelican — they were endangered then — one look in his eyes, and we were hooked,” Drozdowski said today.“That ancientness, it was like I was looking back in time, seeing him on the ocean a million years ago. It was incredible.” Though that pelican didn’t make it (nor did the next), the third did, and Drozdowski and her husband, who passed away in 2006, kept at it, learning entirely by doing. For seven years, they worked with the WCN, and in 1998, they took two raptors, Ivan, a redtailed hawk, and Max, a great horned owl, into their home and began working as a satellite for the Ojai Raptor Center. In 2000, Drozdowski, passionate about educating people about these beautiful and intelligent creatures, began bringing the birds into schools, as Eyes in the Sky. But, while their landlord had been accommodating, allowing them to transform their home into a sanctuary for the birds, they knew they’d need to move at some point and worried for the birds. Fate swooped in when Dr. Karl Hutterer from the Museum of Natural History contacted Drozdowski, offering to build an aviary at the museum. Now the students could come to her. Today, there are three owls, one hawk (Ivan), and three falcons out every afternoon at the museum, and 35 volunteers that care for them. Drozdowski still takes Max home with her a couple of nights a week.“He’s chosen me as his mate,” she said,“I could do worse!”

SHEILA LODGE

Slow-Growth Advocate

O

ne admiring adversary described Sheila Lodge, Santa Barbara’s former mayor now sitting on the planning commission, as having “the patience of a safecracker.” If true — and it undeniably is — Lodge has left fingerprints indelibly imprinted all over the city she loves with such abiding tenacity. More than 40 years ago, Lodge — who moved to Santa Barbara in 1952 — was part of the wave of slow-growthers and enviros who first wrested control of City Hall from the real-estate and business interests that traditionally called the shots. Serving initially as planning commissioner, then as councilmember, and then as mayor — for three terms — Lodge helped cut in half Santa Barbara’s maximum residential and commercial build-out. At that time, this was radical, heady stuff. Without such dramatic changes, Lodge argued, Santa Barbara’s projected growth was unsustainable and would destroy the human scale and historic character that makes Santa Barbara so desirable a place. Then as now, Lodge proved a stickler for detail and was absolutely relentless. After a brief “retirement”— during which Lodge served as docent for the courthouse and for the Botanic Garden—she rejoined the planning commission. There, she’s emerged as the most vocal champion of the slow-growth preservationist agenda. As such, Lodge — a liberal on social issues — has often found herself at odds with the “smart-growth” platform now embraced by the council’s liberal majority and in sync with the new school of conservatives.“They’ve changed; I haven’t,” she said of her former allies with the Democratic Party. Even while advocating her broader vision, Lodge was never one to neglect the fine print of policy making, successfully inserting changes to protect Santa Barbara’s architectural heritage into a major planning document many years in the making. That Lodge has remained engaged long after her former colleagues fell away from the fray should surprise no one. “I was never one to sit quietly at home,” she explained.“I love this town and have always felt very possessive about it.”

PAUL CRONSHAW AND TODD BEBB

Beekeepers

I

f honeybees worldwide are experiencing a precipitous decline, it’s not due to any lack of effort on the part of Santa Barbara beekeepers Paul Cronshaw and Todd Bebb. Together, this Mutt-and-Jeff team has provided the one-two punch to make the recently formed Santa Barbara Beekeepers Association a force to be reckoned with. “It’s not about the honey. We’re all about helping bees help people,” Cronshaw explained. Lightning struck three years ago when Bebb — a backyard organic gardener endowed with an irresistible organizational impulse — took a beekeeping class from the boundlessly effervescent Cronshaw, whose 40 years working with hives qualifies him as Santa Barbara’s reigning guru. Since then, the two and their newly formed association — which boasts nearly 200 members — has conducted 400 bee rescues, researched hive die-offs, and packed the Riviera Theatre this summer with a screening of More Than Honey, a cinematically astonishing documentary on the plight of bees worldwide. When state agriculture officials ordered area citrus groves sprayed with pesticides that threatened the health of the bees then pollinating those trees, the association made sure the sprayers were acutely aware of its buzzing members’ presence and that any damage was minimized. In an effort to incubate a new generation of beekeepers, Bebb and Cronshaw secured a grant through La Cuesta school — where Cronshaw teaches — to start a paid internship program, schooling at-risk teens in the arts of beekeeping. They’ve graduated the first class already and are started on the second. Because bees pollinate roughly one-third of the food we eat, Bebb explained, they offer a unique vantage point into the networks of nature. Or as Cronshaw noted,“Even after 40 years, bees never get old.”

RENE ANDRADE

King of Access

W

hen the Tea Fires hit the foothills five years ago, Rene Andrade did not hesitate to rush to the scene. Not a firefighter or first responder, Andrade is the Operations Manager at Easy Lift Transportation. He quickly dispatched vehicles to retirement homes in the hazardous areas.“It’s almost a miracle it happened in that amount of time,” Ernesto Paredes said about the operation, explaining that Easy Lift vans took seniors to a Red Cross site at UCSB after evacuations. Easy Lift is a nonprofit that transports senior citizens and disabled persons anywhere in town for $7 round-trip. Paredes, executive director, hired Andrade as a driver in 1992 when he had just returned to Santa Barbara after college. Now, 22 years later, Andrade oversees 25 drivers each day and has watched the company double its vehicles and expand its routes. It provides about 275 rides every weekday, or about 80,000 rides each year. The services give those who need a lift rides to anywhere including the grocery store, the movies, or a special event in Santa Barbara. “I never have to wonder if he’ll follow through,” Paredes said, adding that Andrade’s gentleness with seniors and disabled people is exceptional and has persisted for over two decades. Paredes likes to call him the “king of access” because his work has helped people participate in much of the great culture in town.“As small as this can be, I know we’re making a difference in people’s lives,” Andrade said.

LILLIAN PIPERSBURG

Foster Mom

L

illian Pipersburg has had about 180 kids. Though she only gave birth to four children, she treated the rest as her own and welcomed them into her home with open arms. A long-term foster mom and retired probation officer, Pipersburg spent the past five years running and living at the county’s only emergency foster-care shelter. A Santa Barbara native, Pipersburg recently returned to her Mesa home and has already renewed her license to be a foster parent. At the shelter, she cared for up to six kids at a time and would accept children in need from across the county at all hours of the night. Until the child was placed in a more permanent home, Pipersburg acted as a temporary mother and provided a healthy dose of both strength and compassion. “I take the ‘tough love’ approach,” she said. Treat everyone with respect and take a bath every day are her two key rules. “She unconditionally gives so much to people she doesn’t know,” said Franklin Elementary School Principal Casie Killgore, who nominated Pipersburg for the award.“She gives them hope.” Killgore met Pipersburg one day in the office at school and was so impressed with her dedication that she decided to take in a child, as well.“These are kids in our community that are going to grow up and have kids of their own,” Killgore added. Pipersburg has kept in touch with many of the children who have spent time under her roof, forming lifelong relationships. Pipersburg has plenty of soccer games, graduation ceremonies, and weddings to attend. Some kids call her their “awesome aunt,” some say “nanny.”“[They all] work for me,” she said.“I would never try to substitute for their parents. Kids need to go home.” She just provides a sanctuary in the meantime.

PAUL LEWIS AND MARTIN LEYVA

Muscular Mentors

P

aul Lewis and Martin Leyva present two competing visions of masculinity. Lewis is statuesque and sports a crew cut. The sentinel-like Santa Barbara native even considered joining the military after high school. Leyva is broad-shouldered and stocky, his torso covered in tattoos that go back to his days as a gangbanger. Lewis hopes to earn a degree in public administration; Leyva, who founded the Transitions class for parolees at Santa Barbara City College, is an aspiring sociologist. The reserved Lewis hopes to be a public servant whereas an outspoken Leyva, as of late, has been advocating against police brutality. The two are an unlikely pair, but they both complement each other as CORE facilitators at the Academy of Healing Arts (AHA!), where they foster social and emotional intelligence in adolescents. While they run several programs such as Peace Builders at Santa Barbara High School, where about 60 students are learning how to communicate across their differences and stand up for classmates who are being bullied, Lewis and Leyva say their favorite activity to facilitate is “guys’ group,” in which young men ostensibly discuss relationships and sexuality but also just talk about what it means to be a man. Lewis said the teenagers in the group learn that one can be strong and emotionally aware at the same time. AHA! codirector Jennifer Freed said that Lewis and Leyva, who look like tough guys, use their toughness to fight against racism, sexism, and homophobia.“Every day,” she said,“they are people who stand up for the rights of everybody.” Most importantly, they are passing on inner resilience to Santa Barbara’s youth, ensuring that the future of Santa Barbara is safe, tolerant, and inclusive.

SANTA BARBARA MUSEUM OF ART DOCENTS

Volunteer Superstars

T

here’s something wonderfully democratic about visiting a great public art museum, where anyone may enter and share not only in the private aesthetic experience of appreciating the art but also in the social one of describing and discussing it with others. At the Santa Barbara Museum of Art, a highly trained and rigorously evaluated team of volunteer docents takes this social experience to the next level by giving tours and listening intently to the voices of those they guide through the museum’s galleries. It’s a passion that grows with the person who feels it and links those who share it into an unusually close-knit extended family of friends. Even in a town known for its commitment to community service, the docents of the SBMA stand out. As Patsy Hicks, the museum’s director of education, said,“They are so loyal — not only to the museum, but to each other.” Each docent must participate in a full year of provisional service before being admitted to the regular roster, and even then they remain subject to periodic evaluations to ensure the quality of the tours they give is up to the museum’s strict standards. Yet rather than resenting this burden, the docents respond to it, as they do to the museum’s patrons and the art, with open hearts and minds. In addition to all the many tours they conduct, the docents arrive at the museum without fail en masse every Thursday to participate in continuing-education projects, to read in the library, and to connect with one another.“They activate the art for people,” said Hicks,“and that puts them in touch with the sublime.” For this gift to the community, and for all they do for one another, the docents of the SBMA are local heroes.

Thank You So Much for Your Support!

ALLAN BROWN

The Sweetest Soundman

P

lenty dream of becoming rock ’n’ roll stars, but those who do will be the first to tell you: Life as a working musician is no walk in the park. Between constant travel and little pay, living the dream can be a struggle, so when a comrade comes along, it’s usually worth writing home about. That’s where Allan Brown comes in. Since starting his tenure at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club 15 years ago, the soundman has become one of the venue’s most beloved assets. Behind the board, Brown is a shrewd ear, for certain, but it’s his easygoing attitude and kind, patient demeanor that has helped elevate him to hero status among the Santa Barbara music scene. In many ways, he fits in perfectly with SOhO’s mission statement, which has always been about community first and foremost.“It’s like family in there,” Brown said recently, speaking as much about the club’s staff as its patrons and talent, all of whom he treats with the same affable vibe. “A few months back, there was this folk band from Portland that came through town,” he recalled.“One of the members came up to me and just said, ‘Thanks for being nice to us.’ I asked him why he was thanking me, and he said that the place they played the night before treated them like criminals.” But for Brown, going to work is as much about controlling the feedback as making the bands feel welcome.“In music, everybody’s trying to accomplish the same goal,” he explained. “It just doesn’t do any good to be hostile to people. I mean, what’s the point?”

GEORGETTE FRIEDMAN

Downtown’s Outreach Angel

I

f you’ve noticed State Street sporting a few more smiling faces these days — those friendly folks wearing special vests and ready to help tourists and locals alike find what they’re looking for — you can thank Georgette Friedman, who, since joining the Downtown Organization in 2007, has handled just about every job for the group, which represents 22 square blocks of the city’s core. Now, as operations and sales manager, the tireless Santa Barbara native manages the more than 100 volunteer hosts who staff the information booths at Paseo Nuevo and Hot Spots, as well as the hospitality booths and shuttles down on Cabrillo Boulevard for the cruise-ship visitors. In addition to that, she has boosted the number of downtown visitor maps from 85,000 to 205,000, spearheads the annual Holiday Parade and Art & Wine Tour, and is “available to everybody and anybody at any time,” she said. “There are a lot of great and cool things happening here that I’ve been able to be part of since the beginning,” said Friedman, who started working retail as a child in her family’s original Gamekeeper store, which they grew to 91 stores before selling. “I’m the first one to stand up and work, and I have the respect of my volunteers because [of that]. They’re my people. They’re like my family now. It seems like they’d do anything for me.”

RIO BENI HEALTH FOUNDATION

Caring for the Amazon

W

hen Lou Netzer retired in the 1990s and left for South America to learn Spanish, it didn’t take too long for the popular Los Olivos doctor to start helping people again. “Help!” he wrote to his friend Christopher Brady (right), who’d spent his career working on humanitarian causes worldwide. “I think I’ve started a health project.” Netzer died from cancer in 2001, but more than a decade later — thanks to the efforts of Brady, funding from Direct Relief, and support from many others — his dream is thriving more vividly than ever. The Rio Beni Health Foundation is a powerful force for good health in the heart of the Bolivian Amazon, where the roughly 10,000 residents of Rurrenabaque and thousands more who live in remote villages along the Rio Beni now have access to care and, via the foundation’s installation of 500-plus BioSand filters, clean water. “A lot of health projects get started by just dumping off meds,” said Brady, who travels to Bolivia at least three times a year, including every summer with the El Puente/Walk for a Reason fundraising team of Santa Barbara Middle School students.“We didn’t do that. We got to know the communities.” That approach helped the Bolivians quickly adopt the program as their own, particularly Joselo Baldarrama (left), who is now the foundation’s director.“With Joselo, it became a Bolivian foundation,” said Brady.“All of our focus has been on Bolivia and not establishing something here in the States.” Netzer’s daughter, Uldine Castel, herself now a doctor in Ventura, believes her dad would be proud, particularly of the sustainable, Bolivian-powered aspect and the preventative focus via the water filters. “It’s not just putting a Band-Aid on,” said Castel.“[They’re] really trying to make a big change.”

MARSHALL CHROSTOWSKI

The Therapist Gardener

J

ust o Highway ď›œď˜šď›œ, between Summerland and Carpinteria on the grounds of PaciďŹ ca Graduate Institute, there is a botanist’s wonderland bursting with edible plants, medicinal shrubs, and colorful owers from all corners of the globe. It’s a place for the public to learn about sustainability, for growing food that’s consumed by PaciďŹ ca’s faculty and students, for getting exotic species accustomed to the South Coast climate, and for connecting with the earth by getting your hands dirty. It’s all the brainchild of landscaper extraordinaire Marshall Chrostowski, who started developing the seven acres of on-campus farmland in 1994 and has cultivated its bounty ever since. “I can’t believe I’m still being paid to do this,â€? said Chrostowski, now 77 years old and particularly renowned for his fava beans.“I’m enjoying it so much.â€? In addition, Chrostowski, who also works as a contractor for La Casa de Maria and another 20 clients around town, is deeply involved in the Santa Barbara Seed Saving Guild (which gives away “locally adapted seeds of high qualityâ€? to schools and others) and the Foodbank of Santa Barbara County’s farm-to-table fundraiser dinners. After realigning his career trajectory multiple times — he was a professor of ethnobotany at Northridge until age 36, then was a rosarian to the stars in Bel Air, among other moves — Chrostowski ďŹ nally seems at home working on this urban mini-farm that follows French biointesive agriculture. His smooth hands reveal the magic of toiling so long in the soil, and he’s witnessed lives changed because people found gardening. “We’ve mentored a lot of troubled people here and got them straight, without psychology,â€? said Chrostowski.“You just let them work with the earth.â€?

ARTHUR KENNEDY

I.V.’s Silent Steward

B

y way of Detroit then USC, Arthur Kennedy moved to Isla Vista in the 1960s and has been there since. So what’s changed in the seaside town over the last 50-plus years? “The buildings have gotten taller, and so have the basketball players,” mused Kennedy, who likes to shoot hoops at the neighborhood court.“I’m not sure I like either.” He may not admit it, but Kennedy has been a key part of Isla Vista’s civic and cultural life for decades, helping shape the community populated by hard-partying college kids and hard-working, often low-income, families. He served two terms on the Isla Vista Recreation and Park District’s board and has volunteered for its personnel committee for the past 15 years. He was also on the Isla Vista Food Coop’s board, recently working with the much-loved I.V. institution to buy its building. He’s a big fan of their raw kale salad. In 1971, Kennedy — who had a young daughter at the time and recognized the need for better childcare options in I.V. — helped create Isla Vista Youth Projects Inc., a popular and thriving collection of facilities and services that includes a children’s center, after-school and summer program, and a family resource center. And while he gets paid to do the bookkeeping, work on building projects, make repairs, and provide general guidance and oversight, he donates every penny back to Isla Vista Youth Projects. He supports himself by doing electrical work in the Goleta area. When asked why he became so involved in I.V.’s nuts and bolts and inner workings — he’s currently working to save the college town’s medical clinic, at risk of closure because of funding and ownership issues — Kennedy shrugged.“It’s where I live. It occurred to me that there are things to be done, and there are things I can do.”

KATHLEEN BAUSHKE

Helping Hand for the Homeless

W

orking with the homeless — pinpointing needs, creating trust, and ideally helping to render real change in their lives — is its own art form. Luckily for Santa Barbara’s community, there’s a master artist in its midst. Kathleen Baushke, executive director of Transition House, became interested in homeless issues during college when she lived in Washington D.C.’s red-light district.“There are basic rights that human beings have,” she said. “Shelter is one of them.” She moved to the South Coast in the early 1990s and started volunteering with Transition in 1992, fundraising at first but then eventually working in its shelter for overnight shifts.“I spent a lot of time sitting and listening to people’s stories,” she said. One of the most important lessons Baushke learned is that many homeless people struggle with factors outside of their control and that they’re often born into disadvantaged environments with no means of escape. “The injustice of that has kept me involved,” she said. Baushke now oversees 34 staff members at three different facilities who, with the aid of volunteers, help 400 people a year into housing and enroll in programs. Under her leadership, more than 70 percent of families who enter the shelter successfully move back into permanent housing. In the last few years, Baushke has also directed the renovation of the Transition House McCune Family Center, kept a homeless prevention program alive despite loss of funding, and spearheaded the construction of the Mom’s apartment complex on Cota Street, which includes a new infant and childcare center. Baushke said the most rewarding part of her job is watching families who are facing seemingly insurmountable barriers get back on their feet and “feel good about life again.” And while Baushke loves what she does, she’d be much more content if there were more affordable housing in Santa Barbara and the problems facing so many on the streets didn’t exist.“I’d be happy to work my way out of a job,” she said.

MANNY CHAVIRA

A Handler with Care

E

arlier this year, Santa Barbara Postal Service employee Manuel Chavira found himself the unsuspecting recipient of a whole lot of media attention — all because he followed his gut. Chavira, 35, has spent 13 years delivering mail to the folks on his route — an Upper Eastside loop that stretches from Micheltorena Street to the Mission — and over the course of those years has become friendly with many of his customers. One such friend and patron was Mary, an elderly woman who lived alone on Manny’s route.“Over the last couple of years, we’d talk and say hi,” recalled Chavira. “She had a little garden, and she worked on it everyday around noon; she knew what time it was when I would stop by.” The familiarity came as a blessing one afternoon in March, when Chavira noted that Mary’s mail hadn’t been picked up and alerted a neighbor, who then alerted the police. The old woman was quickly found by a friend and said neighbor on the floor of her bathroom, where she had been for three days. Though Mary passed away late this summer, friends are confident that Chavira saved her life and allowed her the opportunity to say good-bye to her loved ones. As for Chavira, he considers his feat to be less heroic and more in line with the reason he joined the Postal Service to begin with.“I’ve seen some of these people grow up, go off to school, and come back with babies,” Chavira said.“You build a relationship with them; I know about them, and they know about me and my family. It’s very rewarding.”

ANTHONY RODRIGUEZ

Helping Those in Trouble

W

hen you discover your teenage son with a rope around his neck, whom do you call? In Santa Barbara, that someone increasingly is Anthony Rodriguez, a low-key dynamo with a rare gift for emergency response.“I just listen,” Rodriguez said. More than that, Rodriguez makes it his mission to show up and be there when trouble strikes. And trouble is something he knows about. A 39-year-old native of East Los Angeles, Rodriguez had been sexually abused as a kid by a relative; tried his hand at suicide and failed; and ran with decidedly the wrong crowd. He turned things around, he said, after burying too many friends. Today, he runs a program out of Our Lady of Guadalupe — where he volunteers as an educational outreach worker — teaching kids how to protect themselves against sexual abuse and teaching parents how to pay attention. In addition, he is the motor force behind the Santa Barbara Response Network, which provides psychological first aid to families of suicide and homicide victims. As such, he provides a much-needed ear and shoulder to those burdened with inconsolable grief, reminding them they are not nearly as alone as they most certainly feel. For those without the means to bury their loved one, Rodriguez helps organize the car washes and T-shirt sales to raise the funds needed. And he helps first responders take care of themselves, teaching self-help techniques to those who have to clean up afterward, like ServiceMaster employees. To let off steam, Rodriguez works with fire departments throughout the county, teaching civilians the art of emergency response in case of natural disasters. Rodriguez pushed hard to expand into Spanish-speaking communities and takes pride that he’s trained over 100 Spanish-speaking volunteers in how to respond when the sky falls or the ground shakes. Because of his success, the county’s program recently won special recognition by Governor Jerry Brown.“I love to teach,” Rodriguez said. “That’s my relief.” ■

Meet T.C. Boyle

This Saturday, Santa Barbarans can get help selecting just the right tome from one of the nation’s most heralded writers: T.C. Boyle (pictured), who will inhabit Granada Books for one day, serving as a guest bookseller in support of Small Business Saturday, which encourages folks to patronize independent stores. The author’s stint is the result of a movement motivated by poet/writer/filmmaker Sherman Alexie, who sent a letter to fellow authors to do their bit for independent bookshops. Calling the campaign “Indies First,” Alexie wrote, “Now is the time to be a superhero for independent bookstores ... God knows they’ve helped us over the years.” The Shop Small event takes place Saturday, November 30, at Granada Books, 1224 State Street.

r. Maury Hayashida wants us to train smarter, not harder. Hayashida, whose passion and expertise is the science of movement, firmly believes that the way we move is more important than the amount of exercise we do. Along with partner Tom Waters, he has launched the ArthroKinetic Institute (AKI) in Santa Barbara, a state-of-the-art facility designed to “identify, prevent, and correct human musculoskeletal system disorders.” With cutting-edge science and technology, doctors Hayashida and Waters have created a world-class resource usually found only in research settings. This “MRI of Movement” is the future of diagnostic data, a system of measurable biomechanical technologies that yield data that cannot be ascertained with the human eye. AKI clinicians utilize high-speed cameras, force-plate technology, a pressure sensor– instrumented treadmill, and wireless electromyography (EMG) to evaluate walking, running, jumping, and balance issues. Through visual feedback and recommendations, individuals learn how to move mindfully and to self-correct. The use of these technologies also provides important information for physicians, therapists, trainers, and coaches to better treat and train movement patterns. “The bottom line is that moving well translates into living well,” said Hayashida, a soft-spoken man whose clients range from a 15-year-old soccer player to an 85-year-old runner. “If you can’t do the things you want to do, there are social, mental, and emotional ramifications … On every level, movement affects your quality of life.” With athletes, the issue takes on an even greater intensity. Among his many credentials, Hayashida is the U.S.A. National Men’s and Women’s Rugby Rehabilitation Coordinator and physical therapist and tours with the men’s team internationally. Ever since humans started walking upright, there have been skeletal issues, and

GETTIN’ OUT THE KINKS: ArthroKinetic Institute (pictured) is a state-of-the-art facility where Dr. Maury Hayashida treats musculoskeletal system disorders.

experts now estimate that as many as 80 percent of the population will experience a back problem at some point in their lives. Waters and Hayashida want to change the present paradigm of movement, shifting it from a primarily therapeutic slant to a preventative one. They postulate that there are basic exercises that everyone should do every day, like “brushing your teeth” and that ideally, all physical-education teachers should incorporate these principles into their curriculum. Hayashida’s personal passion is the adolescent, between the ages of 9-14, whose “locomotor system is developing and can take one of two roads.” His goal is to impart the importance of protecting and investing in movement early so that by the time we reach our senior years, we can maintain our physical quality of life. Contrary to popular belief, most injuries happen over a period of time and are caused by harmful repetitive movements that have never been corrected. Admittedly, movement reeducation is not easy, but according to Hayashida, everything can be undone to a certain amount depending on the compliance of the individual. Harmful patterns that have been instilled in the nervous system’s operations can be reprogrammed with intense repetitions and training in the space of four to six weeks. “It’s all about retraining the brain, the control center, which is ultimately what will organize and incorporate — Marilyn Gillard that new movement.”

FALL SPORTS Review Catching Up with UCSB and Westmont’s Basketball Teams

I

by John Zant

TAKING IT TO THE HOOP: top: UCSB freshman Onome Jemerigbe secures the basketball while an Arizona defender looms over her. right: Senior guard Nicole Nesbit (#3) takes on two Wildcats while attacking the basket. bottom right: Westmont’s Celina Gougis (#13) finds an opening in the FreedHardeman defense.

offensive rebounds. Destini was guarding a 64 player. We’re smaller, but we’re quicker to the loose balls.” UCSB’s women returned home this week with a Tuesdaynight game against Hampton (Va.), a team that won 28 games last year, and they will host San Diego State on Saturday afternoon, November 30. “They’re going to be a monster,” Mitchell said of the Aztecs, who start four forwards taller than six feet. The Gaucho men, meanwhile, play host to South Dakota State on Friday night. Sophomore forward Taran Brown had a hot hand in Colorado, draining seven three-point shots for a career-high 23 points. The team also has benefited from a tandem of small but quick point guards, freshman Eric Childress and JC transfer Zalmico Harmon. Next week, the Gaucho men will play two significant games — Tuesday, December 3, at UCLA; and Friday, December 6, the Cal Golden Bears visit the Thunderdome.

GOING NATIONAL: Westmont made the most of its opening-round games in the NAIA Women’s Soccer and Volleyball National Championships on Saturday. After playing Westminster (Utah) to a 2-2 tie in regulation and two overtime periods, the No. –ranked soccer team won a penalty-kick shoot-out by a score of 4-1. The difference was a pair of saves by Westmont goalkeeper Lindsey Smith. The Warriors take a 15-1-4 record next week to Orange Beach, Alabama, where the rest of the nationals will be played. Before the shootouts were introduced to break ties in college play-offs, one of the longest soccer games in history occurred in the 1976 NAIA men’s semifinals at the Rose Bowl. Simon Fraser scored in the 14th overtime period to defeat Quincy 1-0, minutes before Pasadena police enforced a 1 a.m. curfew. Westmont’s No.  volleyball team will move on to the nationals in Sioux City, Iowa, after defeating Menlo College in four sets. Meanwhile, UCSB is taking dead aim at the NCAA women’s volleyball tournament. After sweeping a pair of Big West matches last weekend, the Gauchos are alone in first place. They can clinch the title by winning one of their last regular-season matches on the road at Long Beach State and UC Irvine. PAUL WELLMAN

ketball games because of back spasms. The Gauchos fought hard but came up short against Utah State and Colorado, a pair of upper-level teams. In the NCAA soccer match Sunday night, midfielder Fifi Baiden went missing when he incurred a red card for sliding into a Penn State player in the sixth minute. Forced to play a man short, UCSB fought hard, but the Big Ten champions came away with a 1-0 victory. It’s worth pointing out that, because of the circumstances, the odds were against the Gauchos in all three games, and they did their best to overcome them. The basketball season is just warming up, and when Big Al returns to the lineup, UCSB looks good for a run at the Big West championship. The soccer team did win the conference title but wanted more, and the finality of Sunday’s defeat was disheartening. It was only the second time in 13 NCAA tournament games at Harder Stadium that the Gauchos were on the losing end. Just about every time the Gaucho women’s basketball team takes the floor, the opponent will appear bigger and stronger. That was certainly the case when the Arizona Wildcats visited the Thunderdome earlier this month, but UCSB took them down to the wire. After a spectacular driving layup by Nicole Nesbit tied the score, Arizona made two free throws in the final seconds and won, 51-49. “I’m a competitor and a sore loser,” Gaucho coach Carlene Mitchell said, “but I’m extremely proud of the effort. The effort was there.” Mitchell, a former point guard herself, enjoys working with this year’s team. She starts four guards — a feisty 55 pair, the senior Nesbit and freshman Onome Jemerigbe; and 58 seniors Destini Mason and Melissa Zornig. They handle the ball well, averaging fewer than 10 turnovers in their last three games, and they push it down the floor. The Gauchos’ scoring average, despite the Arizona game where they made only 37 percent of their shots, is 68 points a game — 17 higher than last year, when the offense revolved around senior post players. “We have to press and get easy baskets,” Mitchell said.“We can’t grind away in the half court. It’s refreshing not to hear that shot-clock count from the fans.” Too many times last year, UCSB failed to get off a shot in the allotted 30 seconds. The addition of Jemerigbe, a dynamo who played on two state championship teams at St. Mary’s High in Stockton, has given UCSB a boost of speed.“I’m a fast-paced person,” she said.“When Nic [Nesbit] and I are on the court, we’re very fast. She’s been a leading point guard, and everything she does, I try to incorporate.” Nesbit, with a deadly pull-up jumper, is

WESTMONT HOOPS: When the Freed-Hardeman Lions came into Westmont College’s Murchison Gym last Saturday, the Warrior women knew they’d be in for a game. Last March, they knocked the Tennessee team, then ranked No. , out of the NAIA tournament. Westmont won the national championship.“They’ve been looking for this game since then,” Warriors coach Kirsten Moore said after FreedHardeman scored a 69-57 victory.“We gave them too many extra chances [20 offensive rebounds]. These teams are going to make you pay.” Westmont is forging ahead without its superstar of the past two seasons. Tuğçe Canıtez is playing professionally in her native Turkey. Senior forward Kelsie Sampson said Canıtez made an impact on all the returning players.“She was our bread and butter,” said Sampson, who scored 18 points against Freed-Hardeman.“She was a consistent presence on the floor, every game, every practice. We need every player to step up this year.” Westmont defeated Pomona-Pitzer, 77-69, in a late-Saturday men’s game. Senior forward C.J. Miller and redshirt freshman guard Billy Keller led the Warriors, who trailed at halftime. Fans will have plenty of opportunities to see Westmont hoops in December, when the men and women each will play six home games. PETER VANDENBELT

Alan “Big Al” Williams missed the last two bas-

more of a scorer, but both of them look for opportunities to penetrate the defenses. “We attack, attack, attack,” Jemerigbe said.“Whenever we see gaps, we attack the basket.” Defense is where many of the attacks begin. Jemerigbe had a key steal and layup in UCSB’s 67-62 victory at Santa Clara last weekend. The Gauchos got double-digit scoring from Nesbit (19 points), Zornig (18), and Mason (13, along with 10 rebounds).“It’s amazing,” Mitchell said.“We had 16 PETER VANDENBELT

n several games lately, UCSB was a turkey without stuffing, a martini without an olive, a sitcom without Malcolm. The Gauchos were missing a piece in the middle.

COMES TO TOWN

The Hungry Cat Hosts Dinner Celebrating Her A.O.C. Cookbook

A

by Shannon Kelley

ward-winning chef and restaurateur Suzanne Goin has quite a bit on her proverbial plate. Along with partner Caroline Styne, Goin runs Los Angeles restaurants A.O.C. (which just moved), Lucques, Tavern, and The Larder (which will soon have another location in LAX), and she’s just published her second recipe collection, The A.O.C. Cookbook. Despite the fact that women tend to be overlooked when people think about superstar chefs (see: Time magazine’s “Gods of Food”), Goin has earned plenty of recognition: In 1999, she was named one of Food & Wine’s Best New Chefs, and in 2006 won the James Beard Award for Best Chef California and the James Beard Award for Best Cookbook. Her husband, chef David Lentz, is executive chef of The Hungry Cat restaurants and will host Goin this Monday for a special cookbook dinner at The Hungry Cat on Chapala Street, where guests will be treated to some of A.O.C.’s most beloved dishes (including bacon-wrapped dates, black bass with fennel puree and green harissa, and pork cheeks with mustard cream and horseradish gremolata) in a four-course meal that’s sure to make you purr. Here, we talk expansion, collaborating with a spouse, and that Time story.

This is your second cookbook. What inspired you to write another? I really enjoyed writing the first book and get

great satisfaction having something that’s permanent — unlike a meal that people eat in less than two hours and is gone! Also, restaurants are kind of like children, and I wanted to honor and represent my second “child” (A.O.C.) like I did my firstborn (Lucques). The book is for avid home cooks who reallyy enjoy cooking … but also for people who love food and want to learn the craft of cooking. I went to great lengthss to explain why I do what I do, why certain techniques are important, and whyy it’s worth doing them (plus, of course, how to do them).

You and Caroline seem to have a really great, definitely really pro-lific partnership. What’s it been like working together all this time? I’m very lucky to have Carolinee

as my partner — I think we double or maybe triple each other’s powers. … When you have that other person to lean on and go through things with, it l-rounded view of what gives you more energy and a more well-rounded to do and what not to do. It’s sort of like a marriage: We joke that we’re “restaurant wives”— we’ve been partners for over 16 years and, like any marriage, have had our ups and downs and really gotten to know each other. … It’s so nice to have someone going through the fun part and the hard part with me. For a while there was talk of you opening a new spot in Montecito. What happened there? Caroline and I both

love Santa Barbara and Montecito. A deal was brought to us,

and it sounded really great. We worked on it for almost a year, but for reasons beyond our control it didn’t work out. I’m not necessarily a “things happen for a reason” person, but a lot of things took off for us in L.A.: We moved A.O.C. after 10 years, finally found a wholesale baking space, are opening at LAX — so it probably just wasn’t the right time. We are not considering anything new in 2014 because we’re maxed out taking care of all of our new (and old!) places, but who knows about the future. We definitely love that area! In Santa Barbara, the closest we can get to a taste of your style is the Hungry Cat, originally a collaboration between you and your husband [chef David Lentz]. What’s it like working together? Really The Hungry

Cat is David’s place. We worked on the concept together in the beginning, but really my role was to encourage him to do his thing and create a personal restaurant, KITCHEN GODDESS: Superstar chef Suzanne Goin will be in town, at her husband’s which The Hungry Cat is. We’re better off restaurant The Hungry Cat, next Monday, December 2, for a special dinner highlighting recipes from her newest cookbook. working at our own places and coming home to each other to tell our stories of the y, but not have our workdays y intertwined. We’ve gotten better What did you make of Time magazine’s “Gods of Food” day, list? It doesn’t highlight any female chefs, though it aat working in the kitchen together does mention a couple, and listed no women in its aat home, but when we first met “family tree” of chef influence and lineage. There are w we couldn’t even agree on cookin women on that list. I think the whole thing was made worse ing Thanksgiving! You know, “too m by [Time magazine editor Howard Chua-Eoan’s] pathetic and many chefs …” Really, there’s only ro clueless responses to an interview about it on Eater. … And the room for one per kitchen! chefs they chose [as most influential, topping the “family tree”] There are some interesting T were all men. For me, Alice Waters should have been on that sstereotypes that exist about list. She changed the way people eat and think about food, and professional chefs. What was p including her would have included under her umbrella many it like entering that world as women — and great male — chefs. a woman, when you did, and how have things changed? h

I can only speak to my experieence and hate to generalize for th the whole gender. My mom’s a d doctor, and my sister and I were ra raised basically having no idea that aanyone thought women were any le lesser than men. So that gave me a good amount of confidence confidence go going out into the world. Secondly, I worked for a lot of great and famous women chefs: Johanne Killeen at Alforno in Providence, Jody Adams at Michaela’s (now Rialto) in Boston, Alice Waters at Chez Panisse, Nancy Silverton at Campanile. But also pretty much all the male chefs I worked for (except one unnamed French chef) seem to judge on your talent, not your gender. … As women in the kitchen, you have to come in confident (or pretending to be confident), and you definitely have to work at least as hard as the guys to prove yourself.

You’ve done a lot of expanding recently, and most interesting might be the foray into LAX. What’s happening there? We haven’t opened LAX yet. It keeps getting

delayed, maybe for the best for us because now The Larder at Burton Way is open, the book is out, A.O.C. is moved, and the new bakery is open. Phew, it’s been a crazy year of MORE expanding … great, but not going to do FOOD that again any time soon — or ever! SEE P. 77

DRINK UP: Portland eclectics Pink Martini have mastered the art of style fusing. The band returns to the Arlington December 5.

THE BIRTHDAY SONG: Chris Jensen poses inside his Jensen Guitar & Music Co. on De la Vina Street. The shop celebrates its 40th anniversary with a concert and party at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club on December 3.

With Hare’s help, it’s Jensen’s hope that the store and its mission can keep going strong long after he leaves for good and expand its outreach efforts in the process.“Our approach the entire time has been a major focus on lessons; it was part and parcel of growing the store,” said Jensen. “We want to perpetuate that and keep our existing programs active but also develop an outreach plan so that we can help schools that don’t have music programs. We want to have an organized group of instructors that can go to these schools after hours and help students learn in small group situations.” While the foundation is still in its early stages, Hare and Jensen say they’ve already found someone to spearhead the program. In addition, they plan to use the upcoming anniversary celebration as a way to start the fundraising efforts. On Tuesday, December 3, at 7 p.m., SOhO Restaurant & Music Club ( State St.) hosts a night in honor of Jensen Guitar & Music Co.’s 40th year, featuring live music from area acts Bruce Wood, Mac Talley Trip,

or Santa Barbarians of the musically inclined variety, few spots hold a more special place than Jensen Guitar & Music Co. Since opening its doors on De la Vina Street in 1973, the shop has expanded to do much more than simply sling merchandise — it’s become a place where kids and adults have learned and honed their music chops. “Right now we’re into our fourth generation of students,” said owner Chris Jensen last week. “Over the years I have been here, a great-grandpa, and then grandpa, son, and child have all been to our store for lessons.” This week, Jensen’s celebrates its 40th anniversary with a big night of music at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club, anchored by some of the store’s students, instructors, and longstanding patrons. Perhaps more importantly, though, the party will double as a rollout for a new nonprofit foundation that will help to preserve Jensen’s name and outreach programs after Jensen steps down from the storefront. “I’ve officially been retired for five years,” Jensen laughed, “but I’m still down at the store every day. It really is the way I love to spend my time.” And for good reason. Under his guidance, the shop has grown from a retail space into a hub for the Santa Barbara music community, offering guitar lessons, equipment repairs, and for a time even expanding to include a venue space — the now-defunct Jensen’s Mainstage. Over that time, the community around the store has grown larger and stronger, including everyone from former employee and pickup master Seymour Duncan to singer/songwriter Ben Harper to Notes for Notes president and Santa Barbara Bowl Education Outreach boardmember Rod Hare, who recalls frequenting Jensen’s as a young boy. “His mom used to drop him off when she went grocery shopping,” added Jensen.“And now, here we are, 35 years later.”

ANDREW BIRD I WANT TO SEE PULASKI AT NIGHT

One thing’s for sure when it comes to Andrew Bird — the man doesn’t sit still for long. Whether he’s working in collaboration, touring with a band, or hitting the road on his own to spread some holiday cheer, the violinist likes to keep busy, and for fans that means new music is almost always waiting in the wings. On I Want to See Pulaski at Night, Bird’s newly released seven-song EP, everything revolves around the record’s centerpiece, “Pulaski at Night,” a romantic waltz of violin passages that sure-footedly swells into a pulsing arrangement of resolute plucks and quivering vocals. It’s an utterly Birdsian offering, but not necessarily the EP’s strongest track. That honor goes to “Ethio Invention No. ,” a six-minute instrumental that feels equally indebted to traditional Eastern music and Debussy, while still managing to inflect Bird’s signature wit and quirk. Later down the line, the all-instrumental “Hover I” dishes up some of Pulaski’s prettiest and saddest moments, all the while reminding us that Bird, no matter how productive, remains a master of his craft. — AC

PINK MARTINI GETS HAPPY UCSB ARTS & LECTURES PRESENTS

AN ECLECTIC HOLIDAY CONCERT In a world where eclectic is the new normal, and every day more and more exotic sounds find their way into the mainstream, Pink Martini occupies a cozy spot on the farthest horizon, not just over the rainbow, but beyond the sun, the moon, and the stars in a galaxy where Chinese pop, Farsi ballads, singing NPR journalists, Rufus Wainwright, and Phyllis Diller all make themselves comfortable. Thanks to pianist/ maestro Thomas Lauderdale, his little big band, and the good folks at UCSB Arts & Lectures, this holiday season in Santa Barbara will start off with a fantastic party at the Arlington Theatre. There, fans will be treated to an evening filled with music that is by turns familiar, startling, and nearly unimaginable. Despite the immense range of variation, one common thread binds together Pink Martini’s vast array of musical styles, and that’s an exquisite sense of pleasure in difference — a sensitivity to the context and cultural weight of a song that’s nothing short of amazing. The latest Pink Martini album, Get Happy, was released in late September this year, and it may be their best yet. Anchored by Lauderdale’s piano and arrangements, Get Happy features not only the group’s two star vocalists, China Forbes and Storm Large, but also guest spots by Rufus Wainwright, cabaret star Meow Meow, NPR reporter Ari Shapiro, and Phyllis Diller. “Smile,” the Charlie Chaplin–penned standard that closes the album, was recorded in Los Angeles shortly before Diller’s death and was widely featured in media tributes to the great comedian. The tone of the entire set combines wistfulness with hope in a way that “Smile” crystallizes. As Lauderdale puts it, these songs are “uplifting … but in a devastating sort of way.” But don’t be kept away from the concert by the threat of some kind of seasonal affective disorder. Pink Martini also has an excellent and fittingly unusual holiday album to draw on. It’s called Joy to the World, and you can be sure that with Pink Martini involved, when they say “world,” they mean it. Pink Martini plays the Arlington Theatre ( State St.) on Thursday, December 5, at 8 p.m. Call 893-3535 or visit artsandlectures.sa.ucsb.edu for tickets and info. — Charles Donelan

AND A PIANO BENCH Pianists Joanne Pearce Martin and Gavin Martin Return to Camerata Pacifica by Tom Jacobs

P

laying four-hand piano presents its own unique set of challenges, according to the duo piano team of Joanne Pearce Martin and Gavin Martin. There’s the inevitable bumping of elbows and the fact that each player is off-center, giving the experience an odd, somewhat unsettling feel. And then there’s the issue of the pedals. “You have to either use no pedals, or you have to pedal for someone else,” noted Gavin. “That’s like sitting in the passenger seat and operating the clutch while someone else is driving!” If you’re racing down Rachmaninoff Road under those circumstances, it had better be with someone you know and trust. And that’s certainly the case with the Martins, who have been married for 23 years and piano partners for three decades. As part of the Camerata Pacifica chamber music series (Joanne was a founding member of the acclaimed ensemble), they will give two concerts on Thursday, December 5, at the Music Academy of the West. The duo will mainly play works for two pianos, but they’ll share a bench for one of the most sublime pieces in the classical repertoire: the Fantasie for piano, four hands by Franz Schubert. “It’s one of the last pieces he wrote for piano,” Gavin said during an interview at the couple’s Hollywood Hills home. “Much of Schubert’s music is beautiful but a little rambling, but this one is such a distillation. It’s so compact, and it has such poignancy. “He had an amazing gift of melody. He’s also the master of form in this piece: Architecturally, it’s just perfect. There’s something very special about it. It kind of intimidated us over the years.” They overcame that trepidation earlier this year, for a very practical reason. “This summer, we were contracted to do a concert in Gor, my hometown in India,” Gavin said. “They only had one decent piano there, so we decided to do a four-hand concert. We learned it for that.” And they couldn’t be happier they did. Playing it “is almost a spiritual experience,” he said. “At the end of the piece, you feel like a changed person. “We decided to make that one of the cornerstones of this concert, and we wanted to find a matching piece of substance for two pianos. We picked something else from the classical period, which I consider one of the two or three greatest pieces for two pianos: the Mozart sonata.

He was at the peak of his career when he wrote it. It’s just amazing.” Their program also includes an arrangement by Ravel of a Debussy orchestral score; an excerpt from a Mozart piano sonata with a second piano part, by Grieg, layered on top; and a set of variations by Lutosławski on that famous theme of Paganini that also inspired Rachmaninoff and Brahms. Joanne calls it “a real party piece.” She and Gavin met, and first performed together, while they were students at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. After graduating they moved, separately, to New York, where Joanne freelanced and Gavin continued his studies with legendary pianist Gary Graffman. While they were close friends, romance didn’t blossom until Joanne moved to Los Angeles in the late 1980s. (She eventually was named principal keyboardist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic.) Gavin moved out to be with her and to start afresh, his dreams of a solo career curtailed by a wrist injury. He spent years working in the personal-finance industry and performing on the side before quitting two years ago to devote his life to music. (His wrist is completely healed.) So what are the pros and cons of working so closely with your spouse? “There are mostly pros,” Joanne said.“It takes a long time to become comfortable with a two-piano partner. It’s one of the most difficult musical partnerships. “You’re always going to have conflicting ideas when you have two musical personalities. We run into situations where we disagree. We try different things and work it out. I don’t think we fight as much as some couples!” “We do have very different styles,” added Gavin. “But we have a lot of respect for each other, and we’re willing to adapt.” Which is good advice for any duo — personal, professional, or both.

Camerata Pacifica presents Joanne Pearce Martin and Gavin Martin in concert at the Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall (1070 Fairway Rd.) on Thursday, December 5, at 1 and 7:30 p.m. Call 884-8410 or visit cameratapacifica.org for tickets and info.

HOME TAPES: Pete Yorn (right) says that J.D. King’s “vibed out” L.A. house and studio helped inspire the pair’s debut album as The Olms. King and Yorn play SOhO Restaurant & Music Club on December 4.

GETTING TO KNOW THE OLMS Pete Yorn and J.D. King Team Up for New Album by Aly Comingore

S

ometimes it’s just kind of nice to get lost in a band,” says singer/songwriter Pete Yorn, onehalf of the somewhat newly established duo The Olms. Started as a pet project between Yorn and longtime friend J.D. King, the band can loosely be described through its collection of influences — everything from ’60s Britpop to ’70s California folk and bluegrass makes an impression on the pair’s self-titled debut, which was recorded to vintage tape in King’s retro-styled house late last year. As such, The Olms is brimming with strong harmonies, jangly piano work, sun-drenched guitar tones, and plenty of curious auxiliary flourishes. (King’s bansuri flute shows up on “Another Daydream,” while Yorn contributes theremin and jaw harp for “A Bottle of Wine, Etc.”) For both artists, The Olms marks an impressive first attempt at true musical collaboration; both men have worked with other artists but have only written songs in solo mode. Below,Yorn talks about taking on his first songwriting partner, vibing out in King’s Los Angeles home, and finding inspiration in a cave-dwelling amphibian. You’ve worked alone for so long. Were you itching to collaborate prior to this, or was it more about working with J.D.? Well, I wasn’t really thinking I was going to write a bunch of songs with J.D. or anything like that. I just started hanging out in his studio, and it kind of started happening; it surprised both of us, I think. It was an interesting way to experiment with my own process. I’ve always been such a solitary writer, and I really do like coming up with my own ideas, but sometimes it’s cool to just collaborate, and I know that I’ll take what I learned with J.D. back to my own songwriting. What do you think you guys brought out in each other? I think any time you add something else into the mix, it’s going to stir things up a little. But we’re good at finishing each other’s thoughts, I guess. We both have a germ of an idea, and if we sit and work on it together, we can tap into where the other person’s coming from and run with it. He comes from a piano background, and he knows a different batch of chords than I know. I feel like every songwriter has their signature chords, so we kind of blended ours together; I taught him some new chords, and he taught me some new chords.

How did you come up with The Olms? We didn’t really know what to call it. We saw ourselves as two songwriters getting together, so we figured we’d call it “J.D. King and Pete Yorn” or “J.D. and Pete” or “Pete and J.D.” [Laughs.] Then someone sent me a couple of band names one day, just for fun, and one of them was The Olms. I didn’t even know what it was, but I liked the sound of it so looked it up and found out that it was this blind amphibian that lives in caves. I sent it to J.D., and we just kind of ran with it. It’s fun just to disappear into a project sometimes. I find a lot of artists, they start a band, and then they want to go solo. For J.D. and I, it was fun to just become The Olms for a little bit. Speaking of caves, the house you recorded this thing in is quite a place. Do you recall the first time J.D. invited you over? I remember the first time I walked in there, it was like,“Whoa.” It felt like a movie set. It’s a really heavy vibe when you walk in there, and it can’t help but influence the music that you write when you’re in there, as well. There’s a lot of stuff on the walls that could evoke something. It’s a fun place to work. That’s where we do all our rehearsals, too. It’s always a good place to come back to.

Whose idea was it to record to vintage tape? J.D. is definitely more of the purist. I have things that I like in a lot of different mediums, but his ear is more attuned to that old sound. He’s listened to stuff from the ’20s and ’30s; he collects 78s. My thing is that I know there were great records made on tape, and that there were many more crap records recorded on tape. [Laughs.] It’s the same thing with digital. It’s fun to get romantic about that stuff, but if you have a good batch of songs and you lay ’em down in a compelling way, you’re going to end up with a good record.

“THIS IS A MOVIE TO BRING HOME AND LIVE WITH, TO KICK AROUND IN YOUR HEAD AFTER IT HITS YOU IN THE HEART.

With 500-plus, You Get Egg Roll

IT’S DAMN NEAR PERFECT.”

Delivery Man. Vince Vaughan, Chris Pratt, and Cobie Smulders star in a film written by Ken Scott and Martin Petit and directed by Scott. Reviewed by Josef Woodard

A

lmost two years ago now, the heartwarming Québecois film Starbuck was all the rage in our town, earning its local bragging rights as the feelgood hit and Audience Choice Award shoe-in at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. At the time, this scribe earned some bad reviews from fellow film fans, friends, and fam for disliking the thing, dismissing it as so much manipulative froufrou. Hollywood always having a finger to the winds of sappy international hits worthy of coattailjumping, it was probably inevitable that we’d see an American, English-language, and marquee star–bearing version of the yarn — about a man whose generous contributions to a sperm bank some 20 years earlier had yielded him 533 children, 142 of whom want to get to know dad. It’s a film that keeps on inseminating. Just as a French version was released this fall, here comes the Hollywood version, starring Vince Vaughan as the hapless but loveable meat-truck driver whose prolific past comes to haunt him, along with some slow-brewing, powerful paternal instincts. Somehow, surprisingly, the Hollywood-polished version goes down more easily and coaxes more in the way of the proverbial laughs and tears, even while we recognize that we’re being pushed and pulled by emotional forces greatly enhanced by issues surrounding family and the tender mayhem of parenthood. In this take, also made by the original’s director, Ken Scott, Vaughan himself has a lot to do with what makes the story work, summoning up the proper good-hearted

WHO’S YOUR DADDY? In Delivery Man, Vince Vaughan plays a sperm donor who discovers he’s spawned more than 500 children when 142 of them file a lawsuit to reveal his identity. doofus charm we saw in The Internship. Here he plays David Wozniak, the overly trusting and financially fumbling driver for the family’s business, Wozniak Pork Store, who suddenly complicates his life by jumping from bachelorhood to dealing with a pregnant girlfriend (Cobie Smulders), and a massive posse of unbeknown-to-him children. Chris Pratt flexes his deadpan comic muscle nicely, as David’s lawyer (well, almost lawyer) friend who, surrounded by strong-willed young children, advises his friend/client “kids are a black hole. They suck up your energy, and your money.” Of course, Starbuck winds up being a wild comic premise with a family-friendly theme at heart. Against its own stacked odds and despite its modest serio-comic ambitions, Delivery Man delivers on the feel-good level and works its crafty effects in the theater, and not just in the airplane, when we’re a captive audience with defenses ■ down.

t’s the prevailing wisdom that this rattling good second installment of the film version of Suzanne Collins’s preposterously engrossing young-adult GIRL ON FIRE: Jennifer Lawrence reprises her role dystopia novels far exceeds the first film, which as Katniss Everdeen opposite Sam Claflin as Finnick was directed by Goleta-boy Gary Ross (a UCSB Odair for the second installment of The Hunger grad who still lives in that ’hood). While it’s true Games. that Ross’s shaky camera earned him bad notices in places like the New Yorker, who else deserves credit for the true-to-the novel imagery? The daffy costumes, the Capitol and super-icy President Snow, whose proclivity imaginative sets — from Panem’s dirt outback to its sparkly for drinking blood is subtly signaled here. As Katniss and capital — are mostly Ross.

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF NOVEMBER  ARIES (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): Thinking inside the box will be a crime against your nature in the coming weeks. The last place you want to be is in a pigeonhole. I advise you to stay far away from tight squeezes, claustrophobic “sanctuaries,” and “convenient” confinements. If you’re in a one-sizefits-all situation, you simply won’t be able to access your highest intelligence. So then where should you be? I am rooting for you to wander into the wild frontiers where unsanctioned wonders and marvels await you. I’d love for you to find virgin terrain and uncharted territories where the boring old rules don’t apply.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): Mike Finnigan is a veteran keyboardist and blues vocalist who has toured with more than 20 major acts, including Jimi Hendrix, Etta James, Leonard Cohen, and Los Lonely Boys. There’s a primal quality to his singing. It’s gritty and fluid and tempestuous, almost feral at times. I understand perfectly why Bonnie Raitt has called him a “tall drink of bacon.” The sound he makes with his voice is that lush and tasty. Can you guess his astrological sign? It’s Taurus, of course. I’m naming him your patron saint this week because you yourself are as close as you have ever come to being a tall drink of bacon.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): French painter Henri Matisse thought highly of his own work. He tended to ignore critics because he didn’t think they understood his art well enough to produce intelligent critiques. There was one person whose opinion he was willing to heed, though — a single colleague who he said had earned the right to evaluate and assess his art: Pablo Picasso. I encourage you, Gemini, to come up with your own short list of people whose judgment you totally trust and respect. It’s a good time to seek out their feedback on how you’re doing.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): How is it possible that you have come so far and worked so diligently only to be resigned now to hanging out in limbo, waiting around for the lucky break

that may or may not ever arrive? I’m here today to escort you out of this infernal place. If you resist, my assignment is to drag you out. Why am I so adamant? Because I am sure it’s a mistake for you to be passive and hope for the best. You need to resume working diligently, focused for now on what’s right in front of you without worrying too much about the big picture. In my opinion, that approach will lead you to unforeseen help — and a clarification of the big picture.

mixed messages. We confuse people with our ambivalence; what we say is sometimes different from what we feel. More good news: Now is your special time to reduce your mixed messages to as close to zero as possible. One more taste of bad news: Like all of us, you are a bit hypocritical. You engage in behavior that you criticize in others. You don’t practice what you preach. One last piece of good news: Now is your special time to work on being forthright, genuine, and consistent.

LEO

SCORPIO

(July 23 - Aug. 22): Your levels of personal magic are high. The radiance beaming out of your eyes is extra sparkly. There’s an artistry to the way you are expressing yourself. Without even trying, you’re exuding natural charisma and animal magnetism. In light of all these advantages, I suspect you will have an elevated capacity for both giving and receiving pleasure. In fact, I predict that your ability to feel really good and make other people feel really good will be at a peak. I hereby designate this the Week of Supreme Bliss.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): “I am very fond of strawberries and cream,” said author Dale Carnegie, “but I have found that for some strange reason, fish prefer worms. So when I went fishing, I didn’t think about what I wanted. I thought about what they wanted. I didn’t bait the hook with strawberries and cream. Rather, I dangled a worm or grasshopper in front of the fish.” That’s a good teaching story for you, Scorpio. In order to get your desires fulfilled by the people who have the power to do that, you should give them what they actually long for — not what you long for, nor what you wish they would long for. This is always true, of course, but it’s especially applicable to what’s going on in your life right now.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): The BBC reported on an expert who combs Switzerland’s Risoud Forest to find the spruce trees whose wood can be made into the highest-quality violins. After years of experience, Lorenzo Pellegrini knows which few trees will produce instruments with the most resonant tones. They grow slowly and have few knots. They need to have had enough water to grow strong, but not so much water that they’re mushy. Your task in the coming weeks, Virgo, has a certain resemblance to the master tree-picker’s work. It’s time for you to start selecting and gathering the raw materials you will use to craft your own lyrical story in 2014.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Here’s the bad news: For all of us, including you, there is a gap between our intentions and our actual effects. Here’s the good news: Now is your special time to narrow that gap. More bad news: All of us, you included, are periodically guilty of sending out

meant stirring up revelations about my ignorance as well as my potentials. I wanted assistance in facing my flaws as well as in tapping into my dormant powers. It worked. Her guidance was a potent catalyst. I was able to shed the debilitating nonsense stories I’d been telling myself about who I am. I awakened strengths that had been asleep. What I wish for you, Capricorn — indeed, what I predict for you — is a comparable experience. To expedite matters, go out in search of a person, adventure, or breakthrough that can help provide you with the kind of prod I received.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): I bet people will be gossiping about you more than usual. Is there anything you can do to ensure that it’s mostly benevolent gossip? Yes, there is. First, make sure that when you gossip about others, you are unfailingly positive in your comments. If you don’t have anything good to say about someone, don’t say it. Second, be on your best behavior. Communicate clearly and don’t even think about taking unethical shortcuts. Finally, contribute more inspirational energy than usual to every group you’re a part of. Be an effervescent team player.

SAGITTARIUS

PISCES

(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Touted as a prime source of “kick-@ss spirituality,” author Danielle LaPorte has advice that’s good for you to hear. “You will always be too much of something for someone,” she says,“too big, too loud, too soft, too edgy.” But that’s exactly as it should be, she adds. It would be a mistake to “round out your edges,” because then you would “lose your edge.” And I’m here to tell you that you need all of your edge right now, Sagittarius. It’s time to ignore people’s mediocre expectations and push past their limits. To be true to yourself, you will probably have to be too much of something for several someones.

(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Maybe your ego isn’t big enough. I’m serious. Is it possible that you could benefit from being more proud of yourself? Would it be healthy for you to give yourself more credit for the struggles you have weathered and the skills you have mastered and the beauty you have managed to forge out of the chaotic raw materials that life has given you? I’ve got a good feeling about this, Pisces. I can imagine you summoning the playful courage you will need to express more confidence. I can even picture you beginning to fantasize about embarking on certain stirring adventures you’ve never believed you were strong enough to try before now.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Going into my spiritual mentoring session with the priestess, I had the intention of discovering truths about myself I didn’t know before. That

WINE GUIDE Isla Vista - Now Open! 888 Embarcadero Del Norte

Wine of the Week Palmina Wines Santa Maria Valley Sisquoc Nebbiolo 2007 No other grape combines vibrant acidity with chewy tannins like the Italian varietal nebbiolo, which Palmina Wines has been mastering in Santa Barbara County soils for nearly two decades now. This bottling from the historic Rancho Sisquoc Vineyard — which is full of cranberry tang, herbal spice, and an intriguing medium body that somehow combines racy brightness with dark richness — is just one of four current Palmina releases of nebbiolo, ranging from the more affordable, $30 county blend all the way up to the $70 Honea Vineyard designate. And with holiday meals full of different flavors coming up this season, no grape can better handle that wide range of dishes. For an interview with Palmina’s founder Steve Clifton on why nebbiolo is best for Thanksgiving and other upcoming holidays, see independent.com/nebbiolo. For more on Palmina, see PalminaWines.com.

Blue Tavern Opens Downtown

BROTHERS RESTAURANT OPENS IN SANTA YNEZ: Matt and Jeff Nichols, the brothers behind

Sides Hardware & Shoes in Los Olivos, and until just last year Brothers at Mattei’s Tavern, have just opened Brothers Restaurant at Red Barn. The new eatery is located at  Sagunto Street in Santa Ynez and is open for lunch and dinner. For more information, call 688-4142 or visit brothersredbarn.com. Thanks to reader Gabrielle for the tip. JIMMY JOHN’S COMING TO SANTA BARBARA:

Reader Cris let me know that gourmet sandwich shop Jimmy John’s, founded by Jimmy John Liautaud in  in Charleston, Illinois, has sent out a tweet that they are in the process of opening in Santa Barbara. The exact location is unknown. The eatery has 1,600 locations across 40 states and has opened 200 new locations per year over the last 3 years. Ninety-eight percent of the locations are franchise-owned. For more information, visit jimmyjohns.com. 7-ELEVEN COMING TO MILPAS: Local media are reporting that a -Eleven is coming to  North Milpas Street, next door to Fresh & Easy market. The address used to be the home of Fast Lane Oil Change. Another -Eleven recently opened in Isla Vista.

hef Ricardo Zarate and business partner Stephane Bombet, of Chef Zarate Restaurant Group, have opened a CalifornianPeruvian restaurant named the Blue Tavern at  State Street, the former home of Anchor Woodfire Kitchen, which closed in September. Blue Tavern is the group’s fourth restaurant, following the success of Los Angeles eateries Mo-Chica, Picca, and Paich. “Launching our first restaurant outside of Los Angeles, and to be opening our doors along the most vibrant street in the city, is truly the realization of a dream for Ricardo and me,” Bombet says. “By utilizing local Santa Barbara seafood and produce on our menu, Blue Tavern will offer our guests a new way to experience Peruvian culture in a relaxed environment.” Zarate, a 2011 Food & Wine Best New Chef and two-time James Beard Foundation Award semifinalist for Best Chef: West, infuses Californian techniques and Peruvian ingredients throughout the menu. “I always try to blend inspiration from my past and present when I create a menu,” Zarate says.“To update classic Californian dishes with ingredients from my country, along with produce from local farmers’ markets, is a culmination of decades of cooking which I am looking forward to introducing to Santa Barbara.” Blue Tavern, which seats 60 inside and 30 on the patio, is open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner beginning at 7 a.m. For more information, call 845-0989 or visit bluetavernsb.com.

TRUE COLORS: A rainbow of flags adorns the new Blue Tavern at 121 State Street.

I am told that Bill Clayton, owner of nearby Whiskey Richard’s, is the buyer. ALTAMIRANOS CLOSES: Reader Brian tells me

that Altamiranos Mexican restaurant at  North Milpas Street has closed. I stopped by, and the place was indeed closed and locked during regular business hours. The fact that they no longer answer the phone is another sign of their demise. MESA CAFÉ TO BE SOLD: Mesa Café & Bar ( Cliff Dr.) is in the process of being sold to its longtime manager Ramiro Elizalde. Sources tell me that the deal may close in February and that the liquor license, kitchen equipment, and everything wall-to-wall is in the deal. “The Mesa Café is going to continue to operate the same way it has for the past 29 years,” says Elizalde.“Serving great American comfort food, offering breakfast/lunch/dinner banquet facilities, and full bar — not to forget the famous Bloody Marys and margaritas. Most importantly, our current wonderful team is going to continue to operate with us. I’ve run the Mesa Café for the past 20 years, and I don’t see any reasons to change any of our business structure. There may be some small changes in the future, but nothing major.” HOLDREN’S GRILL UPDATE: Owner Clay Holdren sent me an update about Holdren’s Grill at Camino Real Marketplace in Goleta: “Hey John, I hope all is well with you. I just wanted to let you know that Craig Baldi has taken over as the chef for Holdren’s Grill in Goleta. He is the original chef that we had when we opened our downtown location 10 years ago, and came up with a lot of our original recipes. We are very excited to have him back and expect great things out of the kitchen at Holdren’s Grill!”

We give thanks to all our amazing clients and for their kind words! “We have already recommended Goodwin & Thyne to our friends—they are excellent. Their knowledge of the market was superb and as a result, our house sold for full asking price and on the first day! We highly recommend Goodwin & Thyne.” – Roger & Linda Lowe “A big thank you to Goodwin & Thyne Properties for making this real estate transaction the most pleasant and effortless of my life!” – Carla Robbins “Stu Morse gave us amazing skill, dedication, and superior service. He’s the best Realtor with whom we’ve worked.” – Susan Kean “If you are selling your home and you have the good fortune to select Goodwin & Thyne Properties, you have found the best.” – Michael & Marie Wedemeyer

“As a first time buyer, my wife and I had a lot of questions. The Goodwin & Thyne team put our minds at ease through the whole process. It’s great when a company lives up to its slogan, ‘we do more and charge less.’ It’s nice to know that people still believe in working hard and offering a fair commission.” – Grant & Julia Davis “We interviewed several realtors and chose Goodwin & Thyne because the presentation was clear, to the point, and we felt a sense of confidence with the realtor. A wonderful bonus with Goodwin & Thyne is the 1.5% commission fee!” – Charlie & Nancy Warda “Having been very pleased with their service five years ago during the sale of a home I purchased, I did not hesitate to list our family home with Goodwin & Thyne Properties. I was also impressed that John Thyne III is a real estate lawyer and could explain the unique issues that can arise during a sale of trust property” –Karen Atkins
