TASTE OF DREAM JOB

When word got out in her writing class that The Santa Barbara Independent was looking for food writing interns, UCSB senior Molly Christison was the first to respond. “When the opportunity was presented to me, I just ran with it,” said the native of Woodland, California. “This is everybody’s dream job. Let’s be real.” So far, Christison — who counts aerial yoga, indoor rock climbing, and book-review blogging as hobbies — has written about macarons in Paseo Nuevo, Japanese markets in Goleta, and Isla Vista’s most authentic Italian restaurant, and she is considering a move to either San Francisco, Portland, or Seattle after graduation in June. But for now, she’s focused on perfecting her jalapeño-popper grilled cheeses, admitting, “That’s what I think about all the time currently.” Check out her stuff at independent.com/food.

PAU L WELLM AN

by KELSEY BRUGGER, TYLER HAYDEN, LYZ HOFFMAN, MATT KETTMANN, and NICK WELSH, with INDEPENDENT STAFF

Roll over, Beethoven Santa Monica’s KCRW to Buy KDB

Q

BY N I C K W E L S H uelling months of speculation and rumors, the Santa Barbara Foundation announced that it’s signed a letter of intent to sell KDB FM — one of the oldest all-classical radio stations in the nation and certainly the South Coast — to Santa Monica public radio station KCRW for a little over a million dollars. The deal, however, is more complicated and interesting than that, offering at first blush something old and something new. The agreement calls for KDB to retain its current location on the FM dial — 93.7 — and its same all-classical format. But it will be taken over by radio station KUSC, which now occupies the 88.7 frequency locally and also provides an all-classical format. Santa Barbara, it turns out, was the only city left in the country within broadcast reach of two all-classical stations. With KUSC’s move, that opens up space on the left end of the dial for Santa Monica publicradio station KCRW, whose managers promise to deliver a menu of programs more appealing to younger listeners than most public-radio stations. Although KCRW has long broadcast in Santa Barbara, station manager Jennifer Ferro acknowledged the signal was “anemic.” For the first time, the station will boast a robust signal with which to broadcast into Santa Barbara households. KCRW will provide the usual public-radio mainstays such as Morning Edition and All Things Considered, but old war horses like Prairie Home Companion will be put out to pasture. Instead, local listeners will tap into one of the station’s signature programs, Morning Becomes Eclectic. Likewise, it will offer Warren Olney’s widely respected public-affairs talk show Which Way, L.A? and Madeleine Brand’s new show, Press Play, not to mention shows on books and food. Eventually, Ferro added, “We’d like to create programming exclusive to this area.” To that end, she said the station plans to partner with The Santa Barbara Independent as well as Mission & State to provide Santa 10

Barbara–centric news and public-affairs programming. It will operate out of offices owned by Antioch University and work with Antioch students as volunteers and interns. Ferro added that the station also intends to jump feet first into the Santa Barbara arts and culture scene, promoting events, creating partnerships, and hosting forums. She expressed optimism the station could sponsor engaging, even entertaining, community discussions on such weighty issues as gangs, the drought, and the environment “without sounding like you’ve just gone to a city council meeting.”

MUSICAL CHAIRS: Santa Barbara’s FM dial just got a major makeover with the addition of public-radio station KCRW out of Santa Monica and big changes that will effectively preserve KDB. Making this happen are (from left) Jennifer Ferro of KCRW, Ron Gallo of the Santa Barbara Foundation, and Brenda Barnes of KUSC.

Instigating this radio-waved do-si-do has been longstanding community concern about the economic viability of KDB. For years, the station was privately owned and operated, but about 10 years ago, local philanthropists felt compelled to intervene lest it go down the tubes. Eventually, its care and upkeep was laid at the doorstep of the Santa Barbara Foundation. But even when reincarnated as a quasi public nonprofit station, KDB only managed to limp along,

drawing on a loyal but aging listener base. The S.B. Foundation wound up pumping $450,000 into the station over four years, said foundation executive Ron Gallo, and that doesn’t count the $100,000 in administrative support. This fall, Gallo announced the foundation was hoping to sell the station. While KCRW’s programming offers Santa Barbara the flash of genuinely solid and innovative programming, the $64,000 question remains whether the South Coast radio market is big enough to sustain not one but three public-radio stations. Currently, Santa Barbara is served by KCBX — located to the north in San Luis Obispo — and KCLU, which is located in Thousand Oaks. Of the two, KCLU has made a consistent effort to cover regional news with a Santa Barbara slant. KCLU station manager Jim Rondeau expressed confidence that all three stations could “peacefully coexist” but also acknowledged it was possible that fundraising could become an issue.“If a local operation like KCLU loses a significant amount of listener financial support to a Los Angeles–based station like KCRW, it will drastically impact its ability to serve the community,” he said. “That’s an ugly reality.” KCRW’s Ferro expressed optimism that would not be the case. The L.A. area, she said, has many public-radio stations.“We found there is robust support for good quality programming that’s relevant to people’s lives. You can bring new people into the tent.” Ferro said KCRW enjoys much stronger support from 30- to 44-year-old listeners than do most public-radio stations, which she said typically draw strongest among the 50-plus crowd. While the letter of intent has been signed, the deal must first be approved by the Federal Communications Commission. Ferro estimated that process should take no more than 60 days. If all goes according to schedule, the new stations could be up and operating by May. In the meantime, Ron Gallo expressed great satisfaction — and no small relief — that the deal appears done. “May I be so bold, so arrogant, to say it’s a win-win-win situation,” he said.

After yelling and pointing a loaded 9mm handgun at a neighbor’s unleashed dog on De la Vina Street, 41-year-old Phillip Cummings (pictured) was arrested 2/18 on weapons charges and booked in County Jail. His bail is set at $35,000. According to police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood, Cummings believed his neighbor’s dog was dangerous and wanted it kept behind a fence. Neighbors and witnesses at the scene said Cummings has a reputation for acting aggressively and threatening people with his gun. Two female bus passengers are credited with averting disaster Friday morning when they took the wheel of their Amtrak bus traveling at full speed on Highway 101 after the driver suffered a medical emergency and lost consciousness. The women were able to steer the bus to the side of the road and safely bring it to a stop. The driver, a 42-year-old Los Osos man whose name has not been released, was declared dead at the scene. The incident took place at 7:17 a.m. on northbound Highway 101 at the Santa Maria River Bridge. The bus, which was carrying nine passengers at the time, had recently departed from a downtown stop and was on its way to Hanford, CA.

The wrong-way driver who died after a collision on the northbound lane of Highway 101 around 1 a.m. Monday morning has been identified as Timothy Morhar. Trapped inside his burning 2001 Infiniti I30 after hitting one vehicle and slamming into another, the 44-year-old Newbury Park man died at the scene. CHP officers believe Morhar entered the 101 in the wrong direction near Summerland, and the collision occurred just north of the Santa Monica Road turnoff in Carpinteria. Blood tests are pending to determine if drugs or alcohol played a factor. The driver of one of the involved cars, 47-year-old Phucthanh Le, suffered major injuries. Six hikers were rescued 2/15 near Mission Canyon after they became lost on their way down from Seven Falls. The hikers — Chinese foreign exchange students attending SBCC and UCSB — had headed up the trail at around 3 p.m. to watch the sunset but were unable to make it back to their cars before nightfall. Cold, dehydrated, and without flashlights, the group decided to stay put and call 9-1-1. But before Search and Rescue personnel could reach them, two nearby hikers heard their cries for help and guided them down the trail with their headlamps.

certify the plan’s Environmental Impact Report and forward it to the Santa Barbara City Council; after the council considers the plan, it will head back to the board in April for a final vote on its adoption. The city and the county adopted a joint wastewater-related plan for the area in 1984, and in 2006, the county decided the plan needed to be updated to deal with housing and future growth, including, among other things, on-street parking and the protection of sensitive habitats and neighborhood character.

The Board of Supervisors on 2/18 listened to presentations from about a dozen area programs and organizations hoping to receive chunks of the county’s $681,000 Coastal Resource Enhancement Fund (CREF), which awards grants from fees paid by oil and gas companies to projects that are coastal-related and benefit the public. The county received 17 grant applications for a total of $2 million; county staff recommended the approval of 11 of those applications. Final decisions will be made on 3/4.

Members of Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 620 — which represents 1,850 county workers ranging from public defenders and custodians to maintenance workers and clerical staff — were granted a new contract this week after a 4-1 vote from the Board of Supervisors. The union had been negotiating with the county before its previous contract expired last year. Good through July 2016, the new contract includes changes such as doing away with freezes on merit step increases and allowing a 2 percent wage increase starting this month, and one percent increases in June 2014 and July 2015; the increases come after years of furloughs and prior cuts of certain compensations.

Funds from sales taxes and hotel bed taxes have exceeded the City of Goleta’s expectations so far this fiscal year, and they are set to bring in, with some help from development-related fees, approximately $1 million more than anticipated. At this week’s Goleta City Council meeting, councilmembers voted unanimously to assign most of that projected $1 million to the town’s City Hall savings account — for a total of about $1.6 million set aside for developing a new civic center — and to street maintenance. Per a 5-0 vote from the supervisors, the Department of Alcohol, Drug and Mental Health Services (ADMHS) will be awarded $1.2 million out of the General Fund to cont’d page 12

As clashes of the titans go, the showdown pitting Barry Cappello (pictured), Santa Barbara’s premier legal samurai, against Jim Knell, a downtown commercial real-estate mogul, proved too short to generate many sparks. That’s because Judge Thomas Anderle disqualified Cappello from representing Emmett McDonough — an unhappy investor who claims Knell got rich at his expense by charging exorbitant management fees and withholding key information — in a lawsuit against Knell and his company SIMA Management. Judge Anderle ruled that because Cappello’s law firm had represented Knell in several serious real-estate disputes from 1984 to 1987 — one involving an attempt by the California Department of Real Estate to revoke Knell’s real estate license — that it would constitute a conflict of interest for Cappello to now lead the charge against his former client. The conflict was not merely theoretical, Anderle ruled, but direct and immediate. In 1985, Knell was convicted of a felony for falsifying loan documents, prompting the state Department of Real Estate to seek revocation of his license. Attorneys working for Cappello defended Knell, arguing at the time that he had been acting under orders of his employer and that he’d rehabilitated himself by wearing a wire and helping to secure a federal conviction of his boss, who wound up serving time. In that case, the judge ultimately shortened Knell’s probation from five years to three, and finding he posed no threat to the real-estate community, ruled that disclosure letters would not be necessary. Late last year, however, Cappello filed legal papers arguing that Knell should have informed McDonough at the outset of their professional relationship — which dates back to 1998 — of his past legal troubles. Had McDonough been so informed, Cappello argued, he would never have invested with Knell. In response to the conflict of interest allegations, Cappello initially denied that he or his firm had ever represented Knell, and that to the extent anyone in his office ever did, they did so without his knowledge or approval. Based on documentation provided by the real-estate department, Anderle found Cappello’s recollection to be at variance with the facts. Cappello said he did not intend to appeal Anderle’s ruling because it would only cause further delays. “Justice delayed is justice denied,” he wrote in an email. “Mr. McDonough will obtain new counsel and will prosecute James Knell expeditiously.” Attorneys for Knell said McDonough had long prospered by investing in partnerships managed by Knell, but that he suffered — along with everyone else — when the bottom fell out of the — Nick Welsh real-estate market.

The Los Angeles Diocese has agreed to settle sex-abuse claims filed by 17 victims for $13 million just before the trial of father Nicolas Aguilar Rivera was scheduled to begin.

NATIONAL State Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson has announced a bill that would require colleges and universities to strengthen policy language regarding sexual assaults on campuses. At a press conference in Sacramento, legislators of SB 967 said that the measure would establish more victim-centered policies and create a culture of “no excuses.” Jackson added that less than 5 percent of rapes on campuses are reported. In 2012, there were four reported rapes or sexual assaults on the UCSB campus.

A Stanford graduate in mechanical engineering, Yerkes helped produce the solar array used by Apollo 11, and his signature remains on the moon along with other Spectrolab engineers’.

Slough of Problems

With sea levels rising ever-increasingly, the Goleta Slough Management Committee has recently taken steps to see what the rising waters could mean for the slough, its habitats, and the entities in its wake — including the Santa Barbara Airport, UCSB, two sanitary districts, Goleta Beach, and underground gas storage and pipelines, plus many businesses and widely traveled roads and bridges — and how the area can prepare for its likely water-inundated future. Since the 1990s, sea-level rise has clocked in at about three millimeters, or one-tenth of an inch, per year but is projected to reach 15 millimeters per year by 2100, said Dave Revell, a geomorphologist who helped conduct the assessment for the committee. “Sea-level rise is a long-term issue that we need to deal with,” he said. “In the future, it may require a complete rethink of how we manage Goleta Slough and all of the infrastructure that is in there.” Experts said that they worry rising waters could flood the airport — the runways, Revell said, are about nine feet above sea level and high tide hits the seven-foot mark — and the streets and that, although hard to imagine in the midst of a severe drought, strong rainstorms, coupled with rising waters, could turn the slough into a bathtub and prevent the storm drains from draining. Wildlife would also be affected, said Rachel Couch of the Coastal Conservancy, which helped fund the assessment. While she said it was unclear exactly how steelhead trout would fare, Belding’s savannah sparrows would suffer, but shore birds would benefit from the water’s ability to turn the midmarsh into mud flats. Geese and ducks could arrive in greater numbers, posing safety risks for the airport. Thousands of years from now could see the need for everything in the slough’s vicinity to relocate, Revell said. In the nearer future, though, adaptation measures like resurfacing roads and airport runways slightly higher and allowing sediment into the slough — long prevented — commensurate with the rising waters could help, said Committee facilitator Pat Saley, who added that the group will be incorporating the assessment into its slough management plan and figuring out a way for all of the jurisdictions involved to discuss strategies. “This initial study is so important to getting the discussion going,” she said. “We’re trying to be proactive, not reactive.” — Lyz Hoffman

Protected Past?

Judge to Examine Morua’s DUI Program Records; Dies Supporters Confront Attorney

D

BY T Y L E R H AY D E N

espite arguments from Raymond Morua’s attorney that Morua’s past DUI program records are protected by medical privacy laws, a Santa Barbara judge is cracking them open to determine whether they’re appropriate for prosecutors to use in their case against the 32-year-old, who is charged with second-degree murder for killing 27-year-old Mallory Dies in a DUI hitand-run collision last December. If convicted, he faces 15 years to life in prison. After six delayed hearings and two lawyer changes, Morua has not yet entered a plea, and last Thursday’s arraignment was postponed again. But the hearing afforded an opportunity for some of Dies’s family and friends to interact with Morua’s defense attorney, Darryl Genis, in exchanges that varied between confrontational and cordial. During the hearing, Senior Deputy District Attorney Arnis Tolks reminded Judge Thomas Adams that Morua — a U.S. Army veteran who reportedly suffers from PTSD and has openly admitted to past troubles with alcohol — had been convicted of DUI twice before. After those incidents, which both occurred in Ventura County in 2006, Morua was ordered to attend DUI education programs, and Tolks wants access to those attendance records and testing results. The prosecutor believes that information may be relevant to the “implied malice and gross negligence” Morua displayed the night Dies was killed. After Morua hit Dies, he reportedly backed up and drove around her body, refused to return to the scene after being confronted by witnesses, and then crashed into a nearby tree. His blood-alcohol level measured 0.17, police said, more than twice the legal limit. Morua, then working as a district representative for Congressmember Lois Capps, was fired two days later. Arguing against the disclosure, Genis claimed the files were protected by federal HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) laws that govern the release of confidential medical records. Alcoholism falls under such restrictions, said Genis. Judge Adams struck a compromise with his ruling, ordering the files released but only into his possession so their validity can be determined. The arraignment was then rescheduled for February 27. Genis is pushing for the lesser charges of

vehicular manslaughter and DUI causing death but has maintained that Morua wants to take responsibility for Dies’s death, suggesting that he appear in a MADD-sponsored anti-drinking-and-driving commercial. When asked how Morua is faring behind bars, Genis explained, “Raymond is using his time well, helping to organize more AA meetings and working with incarcerated veterans who also suffer from PTSD.” Genis took over the case last month from private defense attorney Sam Eaton, who had replaced public defender Deedra Edgar. The reasons behind the switches are unclear, but last week a judge of the California State Bar Court recommended that Genis be suspended for 90 days for acts of wrongdoing, bad faith, and misconduct carried out during his work on unrelated DUI cases. Genis is appealing the decision and, in the meantime, continues to practice law. Right before Thursday’s hearing, one of Dies’s supporters — surrounded by friends and family members wearing T-shirts with the message “I honor Mallory’s legacy by vowing to never drink and drive” stenciled on the back — approached Genis, handed Genis a support sticker, and asked him to wear it.“I want you to wear it proudly,” the friend said twice loudly. Genis, visibly taken aback, approached the group and explained he’s long advocated that people self-impose a “12 hours from bottle to throttle” rule. He said he understood the group’s position before depositing the sticker in his briefcase. After the hearing, Genis told another Dies supporter that they were “all on the same page” and that there is no legal recourse that can repair the pain that’s been caused. That prompted a close friend of the Dies family to ask Genis a number of questions about his profession and some of the ethical issues he faces while defending clients like Morua. According to Genis, who offered to reiterate some of their conversation in an email to The Santa Barbara Independent on Friday, the friend asked whether society might be better served if DUI defense attorneys also worked to prevent or curb drinking and drinking accidents rather than just profiting from their aftermaths.“I told him my practice is almost entirely comprised of first offenders,” Genis explained, “almost all of whom do not become repeat offender clients, and that I handle cont’d page 15

Yatom Wants Shalom

Former Head of Israeli Spy Agency to Speak in Santa Barbara

W

BY B R A N D O N FA S T M A N

hen Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits the United States next month, he will address AIPAC (the American Israel Public Affairs Committee), the most influential pro-Israel lobby in D.C. It is a reality of American politics that any national official who claims an affinity for Israel must pay respects to AIPAC. For the past few years, however, the upstart lobby, J Street (named for a nonexistent street in D.C. that would ostensibly sit parallel to K Street, home to many of the nation’s largest lobbying firms) has been attempting to provide a counterweight to the worldview supported by AIPAC, making the case that pro-Israel does not mean blindly condoning all of Israel’s policies, especially those concerning Palestinians. One of the allies J Street has enlisted to spread that message and to advocate for a peace plan is Danny Yatom, who, in his 33 years in the Israeli Defense Forces, served in the Sayeret Matkal special forces unit, fought in wars, and rose to the rank of major general before taking leadership of Mossad, Israel’s version of the CIA. Following his military career, he would become a member of Knesset, Israel’s legislative house. On Sunday, Yatom will speak at a town-hall forum in Santa Barbara with Rep. Lois Capps, and in advance of his visit, he agreed to chat with The Santa Barbara Independent about Iran, John Kerry’s “framework for peace,” and Israel’s political climate. Why are you hanging out with J Street? After so many years of serving in the security apparatus and in the military and experiencing too many wars and numerous actions against terror, I came to the conclusion that the only way to stabilize Israel and to stabilize the Middle East and to make sure that Israel will continue to prosper and flourish is to strike a deal with the Palestinians. … In order to preserve [Israel as both] Jewish and democratic, we need to have a vast majority of Jewish people in the area under our sovereignty. That brings us to the fact that John Kerry is trying to put together a “framework for peace” right now. There have been many failed attempts to form a two-state solution. Are the conditions any better or worse this time around? We were close to striking a deal with the Palestinians twice in the last 20 years of negotiation. One, when [Yitzhak] Rabin was Prime Minister of Israel, and I believe deeply that if Rabin hadn’t been assassinated, we would have had a peace treaty with the Palestinians because he knew how to negotiate with them. And everybody respected him, including all the leaders of the Arab and Muslim countries. I can tell you from my own experience being in those meetings. The second time was when Arafat rejected the plan that was orally delivered to the Palestinians and Israelis by President Clinton in late 2000. Today, it is almost the same because the geography has not changed, and matters to solve, like refugees, Jerusalem, security

arrangements, borders, settlements, remain the same. The situation for the negotiation is maybe a little better because when the Palestinians look to the north and south, they see what the so-called Arab Spring brought with it. And for them, it should be a signal to what could happen. It is better for them as for Israel to separate. However, the parties hold very tough positions. For instance, Abu Mazen [Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas] is not ready to abandon the dream of the right of return of the refugees to the state of Israel. We rightly will not be ready whatsoever to accept even one Palestinian on the basis of this demand. We might accept 10,000, for example, on the basis of family reunification. But we think we are not responsible for the tragedy of the Palestinians. They are responsible for it, as are the six Arab nations that invaded in May 1947 [after the United Nations decided to split Palestine into an Arab state and a Jewish state]. On the other end, the Israeli government today is a hawkish government with some ultra-hawkish elements which are not ready to make even slight concessions on behalf of the Israelis. If we will not be ready to make concessions, and if the Palestinians will not be ready to make concessions regarding the main topics like borders and Jerusalem and refugees, then I am not optimistic. Therefore, I do not see the situation today as better or worse. An element that might change my pessimism is the devotion and persistence of Secretary Kerry. Without the deep interference of the United States, there will be no deal. Where is the public on the issue? According to the polls, when you present to the public a package where there are concessions on both sides — for instance the Palestinians conceding the right of return for refugees and the Israeli’s conceding to allow the Palestinian capital to be based in the quarters of Jerusalem that are Arab today — then the majority of Israelis will accept it. You were a legislator as a member of the left-wing Labor Party, and you made news in Israel when you resigned your post about five years ago. Can you explain why you made that decision? I came into politics after many years of positions where after a decision was made, there was a deed. I felt as a doer, when I was in politics, that we speak too much, and we do not do enough in order to serve the interest of the state. Therefore, I resigned after two terms. You had a long career in the military. It seems to me a lot of Israel’s leaders have been hardened by fighting wars against their Arab neighbors. There are more retired high-ranking officials from the military and intelligence apparatuses who are pro-peace than those against it. Rabin was the chief of staff of the armed forces, and he conducted talks with the Palestinians. [Ehud] Barak was the chief of staff of the armed forces, and he conducted talks with the Palestinians and was even ready to divide Jerusalem.

Haim Bar-Lev was the chief of staff of the armed forces, and he was a Labor Party member. At least until recently, most of the career officers that achieved very high ranks, if they went to politics, more of them went to the Labor Party than to any other party. It is true today that in the Knesset there are only two veterans of the Israeli Defense Forces in the Labor Party that achieved the rank of colonel. Both of them are pro-peace. And there are others like Minister of Defense [Moshe] Ya’alon that have hardened their positions. So you find examples on both sides, but the majority of generals, including those that did not enter politics, understand the misery of war and know that even when we win, we bury our casualties and the number of bereaved families grows dramatically. We understand that war will not bring an end to the conflict. In the United States, everybody is talking about the leaks regarding NSA surveillance. As the head of an intelligence agency, did you struggle with questions about balancing civil liberties with the interest of security? First and foremost, we must make sure we deal with live humans, not dead humans. We have to tackle terror with all means, even if here and there, it hounds human rights. Regarding Edward Snowden, I think the United States [overreached] in using its technology. The U.S. should not listen to or monitor friendly leaders. They should concentrate first and foremost on how to beat the bad guys — rogue countries like North Korea, like Syria, like Iran. Speaking of Iran, there’s been some tension between the U.S. and Israel on Iran. Let me tell you: My position is that Iran should not become nuclear. Now, if this negotiation between the U.S. and the Europeans and Iran will push backward the Iranian nuclear program so that Iran will not be able in the near future — five years, something like that — to build a bomb, then it will be an achievement that we should encourage. But I’m highly concerned because I look at the details of the interim agreement, and if it is a message about how the permanent agreement will look, then it is a very bad one. According to the agreement achieved in Geneva a few months ago, the Iranians do not lose any of their capabilities. They are not asked to dismantle centrifuges. They are only asked to shut it down, meaning that in five minutes they will be able to turn it on and to continue with their program.

Opinions DIMINISHED CAPACITY: Living through a drought, for those who haven’t had the pleasure, is a lot like being water-boarded. Only

in reverse. And as with water-boarding and all forms of enhanced interrogation, the experts tell us, the rational response is to give up immediately and tell all. You’ll do so eventually, they recognize, so why not spare yourself the pain? The problem with this theory is that your tormentors will still think you’re holding back and your agonies will continue. For some reason, this tortured comparison wouldn’t leave me alone as I attended this week’s standing-room-only meeting of the Montecito Water Board. For those tuning in late, we’re currently in the throes of a Drought-zilla of mega-paleo proportions, thanks to back-to-back, recordsetting dry years, the likes of which we may not have seen since 1580. Montecito, by dint of its shallow underground water table — drilled to perdition by private well owners, and a relatively tiny (not to mention almost empty) reservoir — is especially vulnerable to fluctuations in water supply. Twenty years ago, county water agencies — Montecito’s included — agreed to pony up $50 million a year to build the pumps and pipes needed to import state water from the Feather River in Northern California as insurance against just this nightmare contingency. At the time, a few loud I-told-ya-sos warned this plan made no sense; if Santa Barbara was out of water, they argued, the rest of the state would be, too. In that scenario, our expensive insurance

policy — all those pipes and pumps — would be totally worthless. Technically speaking, the jury remains out on this. But for now, the I-told-yaso crowd seems to have the last word. For the first time since the dawn of time, the state water system will be delivering zero water. Zilch. That’s historic. For the lushly landscaped Montecito — where every home is a three-acre arboretum — this is a catastrophe. District managers are warning that supplies could go bone dry by the middle of July unless serious action is taken if not now, then yesterday. This, it goes without saying, cannot be happening. We all know that 17 water districts throughout the state are currently threatening to run out of water before the year’s out. But they’re tiny one-well operations located behind the Podunk curtain serving trailer park residents, immigrant farm workers, and others conspicuously without means. What they aren’t is Montecito, home to $16 billion worth of assessed real estate and more billionaires and millionaires per square inch than all but 19 communities nationwide. Surely if Montecito has a water problem, it could simply buy some. For the time being — though this may change — none’s for sale. Not at any price. While other water agencies throughout the South Coast are politely asking residents to begin thinking about perhaps taking shorter showers and watering their lawns at sunset, the Montecito Water Board is already poised to pass

a rationing ordinance. That’s serious. It would have done so this Tuesday evening if a few board members hadn’t eaten up the clock with a virtuoso display of hair-splitting and wordsmithery. They’ll probably finish the job this Friday. When they do, everyone will have to cut back water use by 30 percent. Those that don’t will be fined and then fined some more. Those that persist will have flow-restrictors attached to their pipes, physically limiting how much water they get. Those who persist further face the extreme sanction of service termination. The bold, sudden swiftness with which Montecito (almost) took action called to mind the aforementioned torture scenario. I had to wonder — like the interrogator contemplating which enhanced interrogation techniques he might deploy — how much was being held back. Quite a lot, it turns out. For indoor uses — drinking, bathing, showering, scrubbing vegetables, flushing, and some indeterminate “irrigation buffer” fudge factor, the rationing ordinance sets aside about 3,000 acre-feet, roughly half the district’s usual demand. Fine and dandy. At issue remains the 1,446 acre-feet that will still be allowed for landscaping and how that reduced amount will be divided among competing uses. Much was made Tuesday about “equality of sacrifice,” but whether the reality matched the rhetoric remains a matter of perspective. For those engaged in agriculture — and remember the district now includes Summerland, home to many avocado orchards — their “equality of sac-

rifice” will be much more devastating than that of Montecito homeowners, 5 percent of whom, it turns out, use 25 percent of the district’s water. Just three estates, we were told, use 92 acre-feet a year, enough to supply 276 families living a less luxurious lifestyle. District managers sternly stressed that these profligate consumers would be brought in line just like everyone or else. But I also get how this might not pass the “evenSteven” test. The farmers are looking at being put out of business. Once their trees are dead, that’s probably forever. The homeowners, by contrast, are looking at living with brown lawns and enduring a less radiant palate of landscaping colors. The justification given for screwing the farmers — provided by the district’s special counsel on hand via speakerphone — was that the farmers were never charged their fair share for the importation of the now famously nonexistent state water. Ouch. In the interest of full disclosure, I left before the meeting was over. I was hungry and grouchy. I get people loving their landscaping; who wouldn’t? But if the situation is really as dire as district managers say — dry by July — it seemed like an awful lot of water was being left on the table. Maybe some of that will be needed come October when Montecito’s delivery of water from Lake Cachuma is scheduled to get cut in half. That will pack the same punch, by the way, as no state water. Montecitans are famous for knowing people in high places, but can they really make it rain in August? It dawned on me during that meeting there are two kinds of water-boarding, and one needs water. Good thing for me we’re in a drought. — Nick Welsh

Obama Trauma

I

n 2012, the worthies of The Santa Barbara Independent urged us to vote for Barack Obama. But they studiously ignored that Obama sought to make it legal for the government to lie about possessing documents to Freedom of Information Act applicants and continued Bush’s extradition and torture of prisoners. In the unimaginably awful succeeding years, “independent” journalists continue to say nothing about the President’s authorized murder of U.S. and other citizens via drone strike; his secretive implementation of massive spying on all of us and on foreign governments and businesses; the intimidation of journalists by our subservient ally Great Britain; and the vindictive prosecution of those who reveal his government’s shameful practices. So what now, Independent? I’ve heard of stand-up comics. What about jokers who won’t stand up? — William Smithers, S.B.

Don’t Skip the Tip

I

work at a popular restaurant downtown and am a 25-year service-industry career professional. Last night, I waited on three people who wanted separate checks and the alcohol bill on a separate check. Why can’t people realize separate checks are a pain in the butt for servers? We loathe it, but not as much as what happened next. When I brought out the four separate checks, they didn’t tip on the alcohol. That directly stiffed me on $30. I am taxed on my sales, so when people do not tip, I pay to wait on them! In this country, until we graduate to a better system, 15-20 percent is what you leave for decent service, not 10 percent, not 13 percent. I know a lot of people are struggling financially, but don’t take it out on your server. We work hard, too.

hile we dream of a few storms to refill Lake Cachuma, let’s reflect on where we would be if the Environmental Defense Center, the Sierra Club, and special-interest environmental organizations that dictate to us now had existed in the 1950s when Bradbury Dam was built. Surely they would have fought long and hard to stop creation of a water reservoir that would inundate

a pristine river valley and just draw more people and growth to the area. Never would they allow an airport to be constructed on precious wetlands such as the Goleta Slough. A four-lane highway through the scenic Gaviota Coast would have been an abomination. The Coastal Commission would never have permitted our yacht and fishing harbor. Not one barrel of oil would ever have been extracted from our land or the sea. Fortunately, these groups did not gain the excess power they now have until well after the infrastructure necessary to make Santa Barbara economically viable and livable was in place. — Glenn Dorfman, S.B.

Richard Richardson was born in a small town outside of London, England on March nd, . Richard never knew his father, an RAF pilot by all accounts, who was shot down in his Spitfire while defending Great Britain against the German Luftwaffe. After the war Richard’s mother moved the family to Santa Barbara, California. She and the children became US citizens soon thereafter. After graduating from Santa Barbara High School in  Richard attended Santa Barbara City College (SBCC) and eventually joined the Army. Upon returning to Santa Barbara Richard partnered with Bob Fanara to open Fancy Music in . Anyone who purchased a quality guitar in Santa Barbara during those years likely did so at Fancy Music. Often after concerts Richard, along with his many friends, would host huge parties for the bands including Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy Buffett, Jackson Browne, Joe Walsh and countless others at his legendary Hot Springs Road house. Richard’s passion for food, music, art, Formula One racing (especially the Ferraris), fine wines and champagne (hence the nickname Bubbles) was surpassed only by his love of making people laugh. In the years after closing Fancy Music, Richard became a fixture at many of Santa Barbara’s best known eateries and watering holes where he read his newspaper and regaled the wait staff and bartenders with lively tales of fast cars, backstage adventures and Rock n Roll’s glory days. A week prior to his passing from cancer, Richard enjoyed one last visit and a few laughs with longtime friends “Ferrari” Bob Callahan and Van Basham.

Jim Armstrong

Jim Armstrong was a rare and wonderful art instructor and mentor. It was amazing to watch him work with - students crowded into his Thursday morning classes. He would move from  student to the next helping each of us improve whatever we were working on. One student might be painting a colorful abstract in oil, the next a child’s portrait in watercolor, then a pastel landscape, then a collage - and each piece of art was approached with a fresh eye - never allowing his response to one piece to color his response to the next piece. It was an inspiring talent. Jim was patient, very gentle and encouraging with beginners, but once he got to know you he would push you to exceed your own expectations. Jim’s critique comments could be sharp-edged and funny without ever being discouraging.“What’s this elephant doing? (it was a supposed to be a rock), why are there sheep in the sky? (clouds), why is this tree here? (you’d better not say ‘because it was there in the scene’ - he would tell you a feature should only be included if it helps the composition!).” Many of his comments to those of us who had worked with him the longest

could be caustically funny, and we would listen for them as he moved through the class: “looks like rats crossing a stream (boulders),” “lose the stump!”, “put it away-that’s as good as it’s going to get”,“got some gesso?”,“I’d be hesitant to sign that if I were you”,“it looks like bouillabaisse”. But after any of these comments (delivered with a glint in his eye), he would then help us to improve, or learn from, the piece we were working on. Thus the classroom was often filled with laughter. He took us seriously, but he kept us from taking ourselves too seriously and this made us more open to new ways of painting and creating. If one of us disagreed and wanted to retain some feature Jim thought should be removed, he would just have us ‘soften’ or ‘lighten’ the feature - again and again and again - until it was gone; at which point we usually realized he had been right all along. One thing Jim did not do - he never taught any of us to paint like he did. With most instructors students end up painting like the teacher. Jim helped each student improve along the path the student had chosen. If there was a direction he moved us, it was to become looser and more comfortable in our painting. Over time our brushes got larger and we spent less time on small details. Jim was a strong proponent for art in our community for many years. He helped found the SB Art Institute in , was the president of the SB Art Association in , and he taught in the Adult Ed program of SBCC for nearly  years. Calmly and quietly helping many, many students improve. Finally, it must be remembered that we have not only lost a great teacher and advocate for good art; we have lost a good friend. Jim was a very private person, but the more time we spent with him, the more we realized how caring he was and how much we cared about him. On behalf of many of his students; Thank You, Jim. We will miss you. Bob Rowley, John Coie, Ann Sanders, Gerry Winant, B.J.Stapen, and Sally Hamilton

Adair Genevieve Barron  – 

Adair knew how to take a day out of ordinary. She drew others into her quest to really notice a day and celebrate it by weaving in adventure and play. You might find her catching grunion at the beach on the full moon—lying in the

wet sand clutching the squirmy fish in each hand and calling for someone to bring the bucket—and then frying them up in the back yard for breakfast. With a Siamese cat in attendance, she dressed up to the max to go out on the town; she surfed, a classic golden California girl; she skied, in stunning Nordic sweaters; she headed up to her Morro Bay cabin, power tools at hand for repairs. Athletic, artistic, handy with tools, she paid attention to now. And it made her smile that bright light of a smile and laugh that infectious laugh. She is missed.

munity is a less colorful place now. In the midst of one of the most powerful and consistent swells we have seen for years, we lost a jewel by the name of Robert Heeley. Robert Heeley was a true artist and surfer, and he had tremendous influence over much of our tribe. Robert described himself as an artist, painter, surfer, commercial fisherman, and world traveler, although he never forgot his Goleta roots. Robert’s mother taught him to swim at 2 months old, before he could crawl. At age 7, he learned to surf at Sands, and before long he was charging all the breaks in town. He was a charter member of the Rincon Pit Crew and could frequently be found hanging out in the cove, surfing, painting, or just enjoying the scene. He was committed to the purity of surfing, drawing true lines with his longboard, without a wet suit or leash even on the coldest and biggest days. To most of us, Robert lived the ultimate lifestyle, surfing exotic locations around the world. He began each day with a positive affirmation to his thousands of followers via the World Wide Web, then a daily “soul cleanse,” his name for a morning surf session.

COWBOY SHE WROTE A Fourth-Generation Carpinterian pens Her Third Western Novel by D.J. Palladino omen can do anything men can do, obviously. Just the same, not many write Western novels, even nowadays. “I can only think of two I like,” said Rebecca Rockwell, a fourth-generation Carpinterian, who has written three. She wrote her first, In the Shadow of Death Alley, a novel about gangster Emmett Dalton, in three weeks.“It’s funny; now, sometimes I pick it up, and there are things I just don’t remember writing,” she said. Her next two books took a bit longer — a couple of months each. Just in case you think she’s just spinning out horse operas, pick one up: They’re not books that pit imaginary Black Barts against chiseled upright sheriffs, either, though all have bullets and hooves flying, gallons of all-American blood, and sagebrush, too.“I do a lot of research on my books,” said Rockwell, who delves through records while writing books about the Daltons, Jesse James’s wife, Zee, or her latest about the Wild Bunch, consulting sources from the Library of Congress to Oklahoma Territory newspaper archives. Rockwell is also a proud member of the Western Writers of America: “I’m going to their conference this year,” she said, wistfully hoping against hope; she thinks her latest book ought to be considered there for an award or two, never mind whether she’s a woman writing in a man’s previous territory. The Last Desperado, published by Outskirts Press late last fall at 540-plus pages, has a scope more epic than a shoot-out. In it, Rockwell revives her first antihero, Emmett, but concentrates more vividly on the life and times of Bill Doolin, a hardworking cowboy during the last phase of the Old West who unexpectedly runs afoul of a bristling “lawdog” and ends up becoming one of the most clever and most wanted men, robbing banks and trains to make ends meet and evening the score with the plutocrats grabbing settlers’ lands. (Think Robin Hood with a revolver.) Rockwell’s subtler triumph is letting us know where Doolin will ultimately end his days — and yet keeping us riveted, even after watching him gun down folks not exactly of robber-baron persuasion. If you didn’t know the author was female, I doubt it would be hard to identify any theme that distinguishes her from two-fisted-brawling-cowpoke authors (Zane Grey is certainly more flowery). Although Rockwell’s second book is told completely from the point of view of Jesse James’s long-suffering yet thoroughly devoted wife, Zee, there is a nice balancing poignancy regarding Doolin’s courtship, marriage, and family feelings that doesn’t dilute the dusty-street standoffs. The existential aspect of the Western is safe in female hands. Rockwell’s command of Old West dialogue (sample: “‘Well, I guess if he aimed to live on forever, I guess maybe this will do it,’ he said.”) is matched evenly by her pacing. The books weave between violence and home life, making it feel more real. That a 33-year-old woman raised in a little beach town has written cowboy novels is more impressive when you learn that she’s rarely left Carpinteria; even her genre reading is extremely

STRAIGHT SHOOTER: Rebecca Rockwell, pictured standing on the Carpinteria Bluffs, had her third Western novel published late last fall. Titled The Last Desperado, the -plus-page novel has a scope more epic than shoot-out and revives her first antihero, Emmett, but concentrates more vividly on the life and times of Bill Doolin, a hard-working cowboy during the last phase of the Old West.

limited.“I’m a horse lover,” she said by way of explanation, “even though I don’t currently have a horse. And I love history, especially all things Victorian. Besides that, I love Kevin Costner movies,” she said, smiling slyly. Rockwell was actually born in Van Nuys, though her greatgrandfather settled in Carpinteria somewhere around 18741888; her grandfather left the ranch behind and opened Rock-

well Cleaners in 1947, a place many Santa Barbarans frequent. Rockwell’s father, Jim, initially wanted to move away from the family trade and got a teacher’s credential and a job in Simi Valley (which is why the author was born in the San Fernando Valley — a preemie, her father said, who wasn’t expected to live). But Jim “just missed the lure of Carpinteria too much,” and the family returned to Carp in 1983 “when Becky was 2.” Rockwell was always a writer, and teachers encouraged her, said her father. But there was something more about her, a kind of obsessiveness that she readily admits and, depending on the time and the topic, can either amuse or exasperate her family. “She grabs onto something and writes and writes and draws about it,” said her pop, who laughed as he cited a catalog of her interests from Richard Wagner’s Ring Cycle to Humphrey Bogart, Les Misérables to The X-Files (the TV show is practically a taboo topic in her home). Rockwell cheerfully embraces all these things, and this fierce concentration explains how she writes cowboy books in a matter of weeks. (Her novels have never been anything more than proofread for spelling.) Rockwell’s are a combination of her Rockwells novels no love of Victoriana mixed with her love of horses; that is a legacy of her grandparents’ lives on display in family heirlooms. She likes to say that her true muse is Costner because it was watching Wyatt Earp that flipped the switch prompting her passionate outp pour. (She’s never met Costner, p who w lives nearby, but hopes he might read her books, just to m know what his work meant to her.) kn Nonetheless, I got the sense that N her ffamily and her town meant just as the star of Dances with as much m Wolves. The Rockwells are a family Wolv readers, and she was named for of rea of Daphne du Maurier’s the heroine her famed romance novel. Their family house — since sold — is on Carpinteria Avenue, a Victorian, and one afternoon recently she stood on a Linden intersection and pointed it out to me. She means to make a lot of money and get it back. Rockwell also loves working with animals — she’s the business manager at Santa Barbara Pet Hospital. She also wanted to be in the FBI once.“I’m really a goody two-shoes,” she said. But writing was something that felt as if it had been decided for her. She loves writing dialogue, giving life back to someone gone. She gets a little sad after she finishes a book; she misses her characters. And she likes telling people how much she loves writing.“Usually people say one of two things. They say,‘You’re a girl and you write Westerns? Awesome.’ Or they say,‘You’re a girl and you write what?’” ■

The splendid grounds of Pacifica Graduate Institute’s Lambert Road Campus are the result of more than 20 years of thoughtful cultivation. The 13-acre campus has evolved from an abandoned horse ranch into a unique melding of Mediterranean gardens with native California flora and edible landscapes that form a green belt around the campus. In addition to applying the best horticultural and ecological principles, Pacifica has reintroduced garden elements reflecting historical occupations on the site. Join Landscape Manager Marshall Chrostowski and Professor Michael Sipiora in an aesthetic and intellectual engagement with this beautiful location. Conversational presentation of relevant themes from Pacifica’s lecture halls—soulful engagement, poetic dwelling, and the thought of the heart—will be interwoven with tours of the gardens.

Colby and Regan are on a road trip to visit family in Palm Springs and decided to stop in Santa Barbara for a couple of days to see a cousin in the area. “We’ve been enjoying everything here,” said Regan. “We went antique shopping today, and tomorrow we’re excited to go to Lotusland.”

Nature

Counting Frogs At night, you can hear them croaking and chirping — little frogs that live in gardens and backyards. But the chorus of flycatching amphibians is dwindling, say the experts. So the Santa Barbara Zoo is organizing volunteers to be part of the national “Frog Watch,” which has area folks taking count of the jumpers (toads are included). “Volunteers do not have to be frog or toad experts to join FrogWatch,” said Dr. Estelle Sandhaus, the zoo’s director of conservation and research, in a prepared statement. “They don’t even touch and rarely see the little critters, but instead are trained to listen for the croaks, peeps, trills, and other calls of common local species.” Those interested in helping with the cataloging need to attend two training sessions: Thursday, February 20, and Thursday, February 27, 6-8 p.m. To reserve a spot and for more information, email Dr. Sandhaus at esandhaus@ sbzoo.org or visit sbzoo.org/conservation/frogwatch-usa. — MD

Book Review

B.J. Novak’s Debut

He may be best known as the character of Ryan Howard — the smug and scheming temp on The Office — but B.J. Novak was also one of the Emmy-award winning show’s writers. His gift for written gab is clear in his debut book, One More Thing: Stories and Other Stories. A collection of weird musings, understandable riffs, and twists on familiar topics — all light but with dark undertones — Novak’s book didn’t elicit out-loud laughs, but all of the stories brought smirks, head shakes, and, sometimes, sad faces. Out of the 60-plus stories, particularly memorable ones included “The Man Who Invented the Calendar” (an early-days trip through the year), “Closure” (a new way to deal with exes), “If I Had a Nickel” (a literal take on a phrase), “Chris Hansen at the Justin Bieber Concert” (a rant on both guys), and “Strange News” (blurbs that sum up big world problems). — Lyz Hoffman

During the six months when the beach is closed off due to the birth of harbor seal pups, Lehmann and other volunteers deter beachgoers from walking on the beach and disturbing the animals.

open six days a week and staffed with seven specialists. A bright-red minivan shuttles students to and from school when needed. La Ventana Treatment Programs recently gained nonprofit status, which means it can raise money to provide scholarships for students. Out-of-pocket costs are $350 for a half day and $700 for a full day, but they also accept insurance. In 2008, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act required health insurance plans to offer mental-health and substance-abuse benefits to the same extent that they cover medical and surgical care. Now, with the Affordable Care Act, insurance companies can no longer deny care to patients who have a pre-existing condition (like an eating disorder). And since eating disorders largely affect young people, the fact that the federal law allows young adults to stay on their parents’ plan until they are 26 years old is also good news, Russo said. The Guardian recently reported that the number of young people — especially teenagers — being admitted to the hospital because of an eating disorder is significantly higher than it was in years past. One in 20 people in the community have an eating disorder, according to the La Ventana website. “My dream would be to sit down with every mom in town and talk about the dos and don’ts,” said Kelsey MacDougall, the outreach coordinator for the Santa Barbara clinic. To coincide with National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, which starts February 23, MacDougall plans to visit UCSB, Santa Barbara City College, and area high school campuses to promote a positive body image and educate people. “I think, overall, there’s a shallow awareness of people who haven’t experienced it themselves.” (There are two other eating-disorder clinics in Santa Barbara: Recovery Road Eating Disorders and Central Coast Treatment Center. A handful of therapy centers provide treatments for a range of conditions, as well.)

I

n Santa Barbara, the prevailing attire is jeans and T-shirts, so when a woman shows up at your house clad in a cloak, large top hat, and thick glasses, you may think it’s a visit from a Hogwarts professor. More likely it is Morbidia Schleppenphal, who hosts wizard-themed events — her outfit is just part of the immersive illusion she creates. A self-proclaimed “Special Agent for the Ministry of Magic,” Schleppenphal got into the wizarding party business after being teased by her brother for ordering Harry Potter wand replicas online. “You should join the Wand of the Month Club,” he chided. His ribbing, however, gave her an idea: Clearly, there is a market for all things enchanted. Three years later, Schleppenphal is now a party conjurer, facilitating the functions to ensure that even minor details from J.K. Rowling’s novels are re-created. Party packages include Letters of Acceptance to Hogwarts, Licenses to Apparate, and Broom Parking Permits. (It’s unclear who would ask to see these documents, but young wizards have the assurance that their brooms won’t be towed.) Schleppenphal also makes wands for the occasion. Just as in Harry Potter, these wands are said to “choose the wizard,” she said, although Schleppenphal does keep the recipient in mind when selecting each wand. She also places each party guest in one of four houses — Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Hufflepuff, and Slytherin — through an official Sorting Hat Ceremony. After two hours of dramatic readings and games conducted by Schleppenphal, the party culminates in a House Cup Ceremony to celebrate the team with the most game points. Those familiar with the Harry Potter series will remember “butterbeer,” a drink served both hot and cold with notes of butterscotch. Schleppenphal will re-create the butterbeer flavor in cupcake form for the party guests. A former educator, Schleppenphal and her brother, Handon Slammendor, also publish a quarterly newsletter, The Magic Word, a compilation of wizard stories and announcements. This is sent out to all members of the National Wand Association, another Schleppenphal creation. — Lauren Haines

ucked in the cul-de-sac at the top of East Arrellaga Street, La Ventana Treatment Programs is the newest eating-disorder clinic in Santa Barbara. Freshly painted blue-gray walls fill the rooms of the small facility, which treats people who suffer from bulimia, anorexia, binging, over-exercise, alcoholism, and drug addiction. La Ventana was founded in Thousand Oaks and has also spread to Santa Paula and Ventura. Most of the program’s clients seek treatment for bulimia — a disorder that one percent of Americans suffer from, studies suggest. The clinic is an intensive outpatient program (IOP) that offers half-day and full-day sessions that range from group and family therapy to art and dance-movement therapy. “That’s where we see the most dramatic results,” said Heather Russo, who is the program’s Southern California regional clinical director. A selfdescribed women’s advocate and a licensed marriage and family therapist, Russo found her niche at La Ventana because she can “empower women” by connecting self-esteem and eating disorders. (Eating disorders are more common among women, but the clinic treats some men.) The rehab also offers lessons about the “chemistry of joy,” and patients work with dietitians, cook their own meals, and eat together. They practice the exchange system — half a cup of rice equals one carbohydrate, for instance — instead of counting callo ca lories ies.. Clients C ie Cl ient ntss tend tend to be between 15 and 35 years old; the clinic is calories.

Multi-Tool Combines Steel and Flame

W

hile anchored in Bora Bora’s crystalline blue lagoon on a boat named Natural Mystic in 2010, two Santa Barbara dudes — one a realtor-turned-entrepreneur, the other an engineer and tech whiz — revisited an idea they had talked about on a hiking trip four years earlier: to merge metal and fire and create an inexpensive multi-tool for campers, partiers, and everyone else. After sketching an admittedly “rough and ugly” concept model right there on the boat, Kyber Logue and Matt Dubberley eventually fine-tuned the device into LighterBro, a stainless-steel lighter sleeve fitted with a fold-out knife (which doubles as a regular screwdriver), micro-Phillips screwdriver (good for Mac products and sunglasses), and scissors (spring-loaded and surprisingly effective). Sized for standard Bic lighters, it also works as a bottle opener and costs $9.99. “The product combines a lot of things that you use in everyday life,” Logue enthusiastically explained. “People are surprised it hadn’t been invented before.” Much of the inspiration for LighterBro’s parts and pieces came from CEO Logue’s five-year trip around the globe. Logue, who was born and raised in Santa Barbara and graduated from USC’s business school in 1998, said he saw so much plastic pollution on beaches and in the sea that he wanted to make something tough and reusable. Hence the corrosion-resistant metal design with rivets instead of screws. And the tool choices came out of not only practicality when out on the ocean or in the woods but also the necessity of arm’s-reach convenience during the more leisurely moments of life.

DUDE’S BEST FRIEND: Pictured from left are LighterBro VP of operations Matt Dubberley and CEO Kyber Logue.

“Throughout my travels, it seemed like the biggest commonality was drinking a beer, smoking a cigarette, sharing a story, and having a good time,” Logue said. “Obviously the product was designed with smoking and partying in mind. Without a doubt.” The name is a bit of a double entendre, he added, as in the multi-tool is a lighter’s best bro and mimics the oft-heard request, “Can I borrow your lighter, bro?” Packaged in bright Rasta colors meant to symbolize “unity” (of lighter and hardware) as well as “an ethos of ease and efficiency,” the LighterBro has been picked up by 140 retail locations throughout the country since production began in November, said Logue, whose goal is to have it in 1,000 stores by the end of 2014. During the research-and-development phase, the biggest complaint was that product testers reported their LighterBros permanently borrowed by admiring friends. Though the devices are manufactured overseas, the pair has kept all other elements of the business local. John Lytle created their website, Craig Takashi spearheaded the logo and packaging, Cislo & Thomas LLP facilitated the patent process, MJ Engineering took care of prototype fabrication, and former Brooks student Dillon Mecure produced LighterBro’s first commercials. Dubberley, the company’s chief technical officer, worked for seven years for Google’s VP of engineering and was the first employee of the Las Cumbres Observatory Global Telescope Network.

The Art and Transformative Psychology of C.G. Jung’s Red Book After a long period of self-reflection and experimentation, The Red Book emerged from Jung’s psyche, with elaborate calligraphy and beautiful illustrations drawn by his own hand. In 2009, after decades in the family vault, the book was expertly digitized and published. Five years later, The Red Book continues to captivates our imagination. This weekend symposium will bring together Jungian analysts, scholars, and artistic thinkers— many of whom were key figures in the book’s publication—for critical and creative dialogues about Jung’s contributions to science, religion, psychology, art, and perception. The weekend will begin with an opening reception for an exhibition of limited-edition fine art prints from The Red Book.

High School Water Polo to College Baseball to a Foresters Roast by John Zant

PETER VANDENBELT

t

HEARTSTOPPERS: In a

week when buzzer-beating baskets enhanced and then dimmed UCSB’s hopes of winning the Big West Conference basketball championship, a wildly exciting girls’ water polo game ended with the Santa Barbara High Dons and San Marcos Royals sharing the Channel League title. For the Royals, who won in overtime, 13-12, it was a huge deal. They beat Santa Barbara for the first time in the 17-year history of CIF girls’ water polo earlier in the month, and by repeating the feat, they earned the No.  seed in the Southern Section Division  Championships. The showdown in the San Marcos pool last Thursday was the definition of a seesaw battle. The Royals forged an 11-7 lead with just over three minutes remaining, but the Dons came back and tied the score at the final horn, as Betsy Hendrix’s 20-foot lob found the far corner of the cage just out of goalkeeper Jenna Phreaner’s reach. Hendrix scored again to put the Dons up 12-11 in overtime, but goals by Riley Heiduk and Megan Bergthold, and a save by Phreaner in the final seconds, won the game for San Marcos. “Our coach told us we’ve come too far to give up now,” said Heiduk, a junior known as Giggles, who scored five goals.“We persevered.” Royals coach Chuckie Roth considered it more of an honor than a thrill to get the better of Mark Walsh, who has coached eight CIF championship teams and two Olympic players at Santa Barbara.“He’s my best friend,” Roth said.“His girls are lucky to be coached by him.” Meanwhile, under the big top at UCSB’s Thunderdome, the Gaucho basketball team lost a nail-biter to Cal State Northridge on Saturday. Leading 68-61 with less than two minutes to play, the Gauchos let the Matadors tie it at 71 in the final seconds of regulation, and the visitors won 80-78 on a layup with less than half a second left in overtime. Two days earlier, Michael Bryson’s put-back bucket at the buzzer had given the Gauchos a 65-64 win at Long Beach State and a brief sojourn in first place. “PLAY BALL”: That call to action was delayed several

days at UCSB because of the weather — not the conditions at home, which are perfect for baseball (pray for some rainouts) — but the snow and ice that paralyzed Raleigh, N.C., last week. North Carolina State, one of the nation’s elite teams, was scheduled to open the season with three games against the Gauchos at Caesar Uyesaka Stadium, but the Wolfpack was unable to fly out of the frozen South, and the series was canceled. UCSB is playing a series at San Jose State this weekend and will visit defending national champion UCLA on Tuesday, February 25, before hosting Princeton in a three-game series beginning Friday, February 28.

WALL OF WATER: The showdown in the San Marcos pool last Thursday was the definition of a seesaw battle, but a save by Royals goalie Jenna Phreaner in the final seconds won the game for San Marcos.

The Gauchos played in the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2002 last season.“That was the start,” said Andrew Checketts, beginning his third year as the head coach. “We want to take our program to Omaha [the College World Series].” Cal State Fullerton, ranked No.  on many preseason ballots, may be the top dog in the Big West, but Checketts said,“Nobody’s got it better than us. We live in Santa Barbara, on the beach, and our young men get a great education.” Nobody’s off to a better start to the 2014 baseball season than the SBCC Vaqueros. They have scored eight straight victories, the latest being an 8-0 whitewashing of Antelope Valley, and are the only unbeaten community college team in Southern California. They are trying to extend their streak with two home games at Pershing Park this week — West L.A. on Wednesday and East L.A. on Thursday. An extra-inning loss to Concordia last week prevented the Westmont College baseball team from getting over the .500 mark. The Warriors, 7-8, will host doubleheaders the next two Saturdays during a ninegame home stand. WARM STOVE: Mike Scioscia attempted to roast Bill Pintard at the recent Santa Barbara Foresters

Hot Stove Banquet, but he didn’t get the temperature very high. Scioscia, the manager of the Los Angeles Angels, has an interest in the Conejo Oaks summer league team, a rival of Pintard’s Foresters. “As much as I dislike his five-man infield [a strategy Pintard has successfully pulled off ], as much as I dislike his patting himself on the back, he does great things,” Scioscia said. The Foresters Hall of Fame welcomed two new members, pitchers Dylan Axelrod and Mike Kenney. Axelrod, who is trying to retain a spot on the Chicago White Sox pitching staff, said he has long-lasting friends from the Foresters’ 2006 team, the first to win the National Baseball Congress championship. “That bond starts with Pinner [Pintard],” Axelrod said.“He brings excitement every day in the most monotonous game there is. He is a legend.” For more sports, including a weekly highlight schedule, see independent.com/sports.

LLECTURE

MICHAEL MOSS TACKLES THE UNHOLY

I

’m happy that the book is not only a wake-up call to the food industry but also empowering to people,” explained author and New York Times journalist Michael Moss in a recent telephone interview about his book Salt, Sugar, Fat. “Once you get to see all the things they do to get you to eat processed foods, it helps level the playing field when you’re shopping.” Moss, who won the Pulitzer Prize for uncovering the meat industry’s perilous use of “pink slime,” will be talking about how try hooks us on the larger food industry unhealthy “goods” at a free lecture at UCSB’s Campbell Hall on February 22. “I think of it as a bit of a detective story,” he said of the talk, which will also include plenty of “nifty” slides, “the process of my journeyy writing the book.” Initially, Moss was writing stories for thee New York Times aboutt en“accidental and unintentional contamination of onella food,” such as a salmonella E outbreak in peanuts or E. coli in hamburger meat. But one of his best sources suggested he focus on what ingredients companies add intentionally, specifically saturated fat. That led him to “the holy trinity of the processed-food industry: salt, sugar, and fat.” Though he could have explored “some 5,000 other additives” approved for use in food, Moss realized that those three are what’s causing the most problems with obesity, diabetes, and other public-health issues. Beyond his ability to provide a gaspinducing stat per page, Moss is best at crafting vivid profiles of food-industry insiders who’ve realized that their work has gone wrong. Take former Coca-Cola exec Jeffrey Dunn, whom Moss said “is paying his karmic debt selling carrots now.” The author explained,“Inside the largest companies, there’s, if not regret, then a sense they’ve become largely responsible for this public-health issue and that something has to be done, for the company’s own survival if nothing else.” His research took the typical journalistic path of following the money, but Moss also grew fascinated with the language used by the food industry, such as “bliss point,” which Howard Moskowitz came up with while working for Dr. Pepper.“Our liking for sugar isn’t infinite,” explained Moss.“Think of adding sugar to coffee and how you can quickly get to a yuck point. It’s actually a bell curve, but at

BAD EATS: Michael Moss writes about mass-produced food.

th the top of the curve is the bliss p point for sweetness, not too little or too much. It’s not the precise engineering of a bliss point for ice cream or sodas that’s the problem — it’s that companies then engineered bliss points throughout the store, adding sugar to breads, yogurts, pasta sauce. It teaches us to expect everyt sweet in everything we eat.” And given children’s bliss points are significantly higher than adults’, this means, as Moss vividly put it, “You’ll have an even bigger wrestling match trying to get your kids to eat broccoli, which is bitter, not sweet.” While learning is the first step, Moss hopes for systemic change, too.“Why does a basket of blueberries have to cost as much as a frozen pizza that could feed a whole family?” he asked, noting that processed foods tend to get more government subsidies than fresh. His hopes for top-down changes from the Obama administration are fading, but he also appreciates the practical marketing issues: How can you make an ad campaign for broccoli? (He actually got an ad agency to try.) “Of course, if the processed-food industry had to sell vegetables,” he admitted,“no doubt they’d want to put a cheese sauce on the broccoli and then a caramel glaze.” In the meantime, he’s hoping his book and talk can help people “level the playing field while shopping.” He explained,“I’m not about to end my consumption of processed foods, but I want to control them and not let them control me.”

CHEF BUDI KAZALI GOES HYPER-LOCAL WITH ALICIA FUNK n between the occasional buzzing of helicopters above, the Ballard Inn & Restaurant’s Budi Kazali is making gourmet food look easy despite cooking on a sizzling should-be-summer day in January on mobile stoves outdoors at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden. He’s taping an episode of his The Inn Crowd TV program, and while the menu features typical fare like halibut, its true stars are items like manzanita, toyon, elderberries, cattail pollen, and oak nut flour.

PAUL WELLMAN

p. 37

lliving | Food & Drink + + + + + + + food@independent.com

TONY CENICOLA

NATURE’S GRUB: Chef Budi Kazali puts a natural spin on his dishes with the guidance of author Alicia Funk.

That’s because his guest is Alicia Funk, coauthor with Karin Kaufman of Living Wild: Gardening, Cooking and Healing with Native Plants of California. “I sent Chef Kazali packages brimming with California native ingredients that you can see growing in the S.B. Botanic Garden,” she explained. “He used the recipes from my book as a starting place and used the ingredients to highlight the taste of the meat and seafood available locally. He seemed genuinely curious and interested, since many of the ingredients were available from plants growing in abundance outside his back door.” It’s a collaboration that pushes the locavore movement to an apex of sorts. “Wild foods provide a nutrient-dense source of food that grows here without a lot of extra effort,” said Funk. “Oak trees can grow on steep hillsides without irrigation, and some species can produce up to 2,000 pounds of acorns per tree per year. Native foods reduce shipping distances and allow us to enjoy local food without the significant water, compost, fertilizers of commercially popular garden foods from Europe.” While Kazali is certainly jazzing up what could be demeaned as gathered nuts and berries by using Santa Ynez–raised buffalo as his meat, he also seems jazzed about having such fresh, unusual flavors like just-picked bay leaf and the cattail pollen, vivid as saffron. “It’s really interesting to learn about the edible natives we have here in Santa Barbara and to get to know their flavors and textures and how they would work when combined with other foods,” said the Foodie Award–winning chef. “It’s great to have a professional to help you to know what plants are edible. I certainly wouldn’t trust myself in that department!” Indeed, before you try this at home, Funk warned to never gather anything that you cannot identify with 100 percent accuracy. “My recommendation is to change over the landscaping around your home to include native plants so that you have a droughtresistant, easy-to-gather source of our

native food,” explained Funk.“The Botanic Garden has an extensive selection of native plants for sale in their nursery and the experts that can help you grow them.”

THE WILD FOOD MENU

Manzanita cider: Explained Funk, “Man-

zanita berries are three times higher in antioxidants than blueberries and make a refreshing beverage that was enjoyed traditionally by the indigenous inhabitants of California.”

Halibut crusted with manzanita and toyon berries: “I gather the manzanita ber-

ries in the summer and sift and grind them into a sweet, gluten-free flour,” said Funk. “The toyon berries I gather in the winter and then dry and grind into a spice. The resulting crust is both slightly sweet yet tangy, too, perfect to accentuate the fleshy fish. Watercress salad with manzanita vinaigrette and blossoms: “The dressing

recipe is in my book,” said Funk,“and provides a delicious tanginess to spring greens and is especially beautiful when garnished with winter-blooming manzanita blossoms.” Seared buffalo in elderberry sauce, with bay leaves and pine nuts: Funk

explained,“Pine nuts have been a significant source of food in this landscape for thousands of years, but most commercially available pine nuts in the stores are imported from China.” The California ones taste even pinier, given they haven’t traveled far.

Oak nut marzipan dusted with golden cattail pollen: Said Funk, “Gluten-free oak

nuts — that is, acorns — are high in vitamin A, —GY folate, and omega-6 fatty acids.”

Gabriel Iglesias

romoters tell me it’s a new tour, but I haven’t stopped the old one,” said comedian Gabriel Iglesias in a recent interview to promote his two-night appearance at the Arlington Theatre this weekend.“It’s hard for me to take time off because I get rusty really quick. It’s like working out; you stop for a couple weeks, and some of the fat comes back, so you gotta constantly do it.” Iglesias is one of the hardest-working stand-up comics on the circuit today (he’s on the road 46 weeks of the year) — and one of the most approachable.“I’m very good with people,” he said. “I like talking to people; I like hanging out with people. There are some comics that aren’t exactly people-friendly. That’s one thing I’ve always made myself: accessible and approachable. I think that’s one of the reasons why people come out to the shows, because they can relate, you know, ‘He’s one of us.’” Despite his ease onstage, Iglesias was a shy kid who spent a lot of time in his room. “I was very serious and very quiet. I came out of my shell right around 10, 11 for a little bit, then I went back in that shell and came out again at 18,” he said. His childhood timidity, however, provided the space to hone a talent that would later be one of his trademarks — creating sound effects.“That was just me being alone in a room and not having any toys,” he said, laughing.“You start talking to yourself … and I found a way to incorporate that into my show.” LAUGH OUT LOUD: Comedian Gabriel Iglesias is a touring A consummate storyteller, Iglesias machine.

away from political or crass humor. “I don’t want the crowd leaving upset,” he explained.“I don’t want them thinking about how messed up things might be in the government. I just want them to leave smiling. That’s the goal. I don’t get political. I don’t get controversial.” He cites Robin Williams, Eddie Murphy, and Paul Rodriguez as his comedic influences and uses the stage name Fluffy (as in “I’m not fat; I’m fluffy”). He’s been in movies (Magic Mike) and on TV (Family Guy) but doesn’t see himself moving into those media. “That was nerve-wracking,” he said of working on Mike. “When you’re on a movie set, it’s easy to get fired for asking the wrong questions or bothering an actor or bothering a director, and I was dealing with some really big names. … I liked it because it was different and it’s cool to say you did it, [but] I consider that work, versus stand-up.” And work, he said, is what he’s trying to avoid. “I want to go out there and make people laugh and get instant feedback and then go have a drink and wind up at IHOP at 2 in the morning.” Gabriel Iglesias appears at the Arlington Theatre on Saturday and Sunday, February 22 and 23, at 7:30 p.m. Call 963-4408.

CHILDISH GAMBINO BECAUSE THE INTERNET

Donald Glover (a k a Childish Gambino) is not related to Danny Glover (Lethal Weapon, Gone Fishin’ ). He is, however, a sort of millennial Renaissance man; he’s not so much a “rapper” as an artist making rap music. This isn’t to say that his rhymes are strictly ironic; hip-hop is a medium that Glover uses confidently to say what he wants to say. He adopted the name Childish Gambino by way of an online WuTang Clan name generator, a fitting example of his sharp wit (a wit no doubt honed during a stint writing for NBC’s  Rock). It’s Glover’s candidness, though, and his ability to impart intimacy into his verses that make Childish Gambino’s flow unique. Last year’s late release Because the Internet can feel a bit like a hipster twenty-something credo, but it’s also sonically enthralling and markedly

more complex than 2011’s Camp. At its best, Because is soaring and bright; Glover’s sense of melody is superb, and the hooks are both intimate and infectious. At its worst, it feels forced, and like Glover is posturing. Regardless of all this, Because remains interesting due to Glover’s use of the album format as a dramatic staging device for five separate “scenes.” Perhaps equally as notable, though, is the bridge that Glover has built between hip-hop and Hollywood. Some rappers have tried to act and some celebrities have tried to rap, but

these have always been package deals: Warren Beatty the actor rapped; Snoop Dogg the rapper acted. Donald Glover became Childish Gambino. — Jake Blair

HEIGHHO: Ryan Camou dances the roll of the Prince and Lilit Hogtanian portrays Snow White in State Street Ballet’s take on the fairy tale.

MIRROR, MIRROR

ON THE WALL First published by the Brothers Grimm in the early 19th century, the German fairy tale of Snow White was harrowing: A vain and evil queen, a series of attempted murders, and a glass coffin featured prominently. Today, the best-known version of the story is Walt Disney’s 1937 animated film, which scales down the horror and plays up Snow White’s friendship with the seven dwarves who save her. This weekend, State Street Ballet (SSB) brings its rendition of the fable back to the Lobero Theatre, where this production premiered in 2007. SSB’s child-friendly version, like the Disney film, focuses on the triumph of love over bitter jealousy. Longtime fans of the company will associate State Street Ballet with the historic Lobero, their home theater for many years. The theater itself is an attraction for those who haven’t been through the doors since it reopened in December 2013 following an extensive renovation. Like the space it’s performed in, this production combines the old with the new; longtime SSB member Ryan Camou will dance the role of the Prince, while Snow White and the Evil Queen will be danced by newer company members Lilit Hogtanian and Kate Kadow, respectively. Theatrically, choreographer and SSB ballet master Marina Fliagina has a lot to work with here. In addition to the good-hearted innocence of Snow White, the ardor of her Prince, and the Evil Queen’s rage, there are of course the seven dwarves, each with his own distinct character. Unlike many classical ballets, that means there’s lots of scope here for comedy — something younger audience members will appreciate. Even the Evil Queen’s creepy habit of addressing her hand mirror is a little less haunting when it’s danced instead of spoken. State Street Ballet will open its 2014 season with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs on Saturday, February 22, at 7:30 p.m. The show also runs Sunday, February 23, at 2 p.m. For tickets, call 963-0761 or visit lobero .com.

FEB 27-MAR 8 UCSB HATLEN THEATER

Untitled IV by Ruth Markofsky is about place and family – the kind we’re born into, and the kind that we build, sometimes haphazardly. At the center of the story is Ruth, a Boston native who has settled in Joshua Tree to build her famously expansive sculptures and raise her young son. In a moment of personal and creative crisis, Ruth summons an eclectic group of characters to grapple with questions about motherhood and loss, adoption and addiction – and the consequences, real or imagined, of putting plastic in the dishwasher.

STIMULATING DANCE Kinesis Returns to Center Stage by Elizabeth Schwyzer

movement in response to a stimulus — that’s the definition of “kinesis,” the word chosen three years ago to encapsulate the new work being made by Santa Barbara dance artists. Formerly known as New Works, Kinesis is Santa Barbara’s annual showcase of contemporary choreography. This year’s performance kicks off tomorrow, Friday, February 21, at Center Stage Theater. TURN, TURN, TURN: Melissa Block At the same time, kinesis performs in “Alma,” just one of could be seen as a descrip- the dances in this week’s Kinesis tion of the way the show’s program. organizing body, the Santa Barbara Dance Alliance (SBDA), has adapted itself around a changing economy. Since 1979, SBDA has served as the community’s hub for all things dance, growing from a loose association of dancers and choreographers to a busy nonprofit with involvement in scores of projects and productions. Now, says Executive Director Sheila Caldwell, it’s time to focus on the basics: fiscal sponsorships, scholarships, and master classes. Most of the popular annual showcases SBDA has historically hosted are being put on hold for the time being; Kinesis is the exception. “There’s a true need for independent choreographers to have a venue for staging new work,” Caldwell explained, noting that this year’s program represents the work of 11 choreographers and more than 50 performers. Among those artists is Meredith Cabaniss, who graduated last spring from UCSB and has recently launched a dance collective. Last year’s production of Kinesis marked Cabaniss’s foray onto the professional stage. This year, Cabaniss will present “a thirst for,” a trio that draws inspiration from the five languages of love and celebrates the possibility of compassion between strangers. The dancers in this work are drawn from UCSB’s freshman company; Cabaniss said she’s enjoying working with the group, whom she described as “relatively untrained, but all very talented.” Independent choreographer and movement instructor Matthew Nelson sees Kinesis as a crucial aspect of the Alliance’s work in the community. “It’s so wonderful that [Kinesis] exists,” he noted. “This is a hard time for dance; there’s a lot of excitement about the art form, but a lot of that is about dance that’s commercialized.” Nelson’s work for this program, “Apropos,” explores ideas of cultural appropriation, drawing on dance styles and musical traditions from around the world. Alongside Cabaniss and Nelson’s work will be two dance films, two contemporary ballet numbers, a work of dance theater, and contemporary dance pieces that range from solos to large groups created by young choreographers and seasoned professionals, including members of the UCSB and SBCC dance faculties. As Cabaniss noted, one of the best outcomes of Kinesis is the opportunity for artists working in the same small city to meet, talk, and consider future collaborations. Some of the creative relationships represented in this program arose from past productions of Kinesis, when artists had a chance to chat in the dressing room during tech and dress rehearsal. If the benefits of such a program are clear, its future is somewhat less certain. Caldwell and her board are determined to make SBDA sustainable, but those whose creative lives center on dance suspect there may be challenges ahead. As Nelson put it,“The art of live performance is something I value greatly, yet I’m cautious about how I invest in it. I don’t know how to build a safe future for it, but I do it anyway because I love it so much.” Nelson says he’s curious to see whether Kinesis will prove a sustainable model in the coming years. “I am so grateful for the Dance Alliance,” he added. “I’m hopeful we can keep it up.” Kinesis opens on Friday, February 21, at 8 p.m. and shows Saturday, February 22, at 2 and 8 p.m. at Center Stage Theater.

hen Opera Santa Barbara brings Giuseppe Verdi’s late-career masterpiece Falstaff to the Granada Theatre stage on March 7 and 9, some lucky audience members will have already met Mistress Quickly, Falstaff ’s nemesis, and heard an insider’s account of the production from mezzo-soprano Catherine Cook, who is cast in the role. That’s because on Friday, February 21, Cook will sing in recital and then participate in a panel discussion along with Falstaff’s director, Jose Maria Condemi; the show’s conductor, Francesco Milioto; and moderator James Donelan. The evening is billed as Demystifying Opera, and it’s happening at MichaelKate Interiors & Art Gallery on the corner of Santa Barbara and Yanonali streets in the heart of the Funk Zone. Like several of the other high-profile music-presenting organizations in town, Opera Santa Barbara (OSB) has figured out that something special happens when you take the music out of the concert hall and let it pop up somewhere unexpected. In fact, it was at a similar event sponsored by the Music Academy of the West and featuring cellist Joshua Roman late last July that MichaelKate owner Michael McColm first expressed his interest in potentially turning his spacious furniture showroom into an impromptu concert hall. Now, largely through the efforts of OSB’s indefatigable Community Engagement Manager Kristen Reed, that has happened. The room, with its abundance of comfortable seating, stimulating art, and open space, has become the de facto living room of the Funk Zone, as visual artists and musicians are more and more frequently invited to do these types of presentations there. It’s not unusual for more than a hundred art lovers to crowd into the room for the visual-art panel discussions. While Demystifying Opera drew a notably smaller audience in its first incarnation, attendees are guaranteed to receive a lot in return, because these participants don’t just talk — they put their voices where their mouths are, so to speak. On Friday, Cook will talk about Falstaff and sing excerpts from the production, but at the heart of her recital program will be the contemporary composer Jake Heggie’s 2005 song cycle Statuesque. These five pieces for mezzo-soprano and piano are each based on a specific piece of well-known sculpture. There’s a Henry Moore, a Picasso, and a Giacometti, and the finale is a wild and woolly musical interpretation of the sculpture known as the “Nike of Samothrace,” or “Winged Victory.” The inclusion of this contemporary work on the program shows both how open to new ideas and how ambitious Opera Santa Barbara has become under artistic director Jose Maria Condemi. As many know, he’s one of the most articulate and insightful artists at work in opera today. He also excels in these types of formats, having spent several years creating a successful outreach program for the San Francisco Opera. The final ingredient in this recipe is, of course, the music and art of Verdi, which reaches one of many grand climaxes in what is often considered his most modern composition. The richness of the orchestration and the sophisticated interaction of the voices in this opera remain unsurpassed, and any time spent preparing to savor the full production will be well spent. Demystifying Opera takes place at MichaelKate Interiors & Art Gallery (132 Santa Barbara St.) on Friday, February 21, from 5-7 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the door, or in advance by calling 898-3890.

f some passing satellite decides to train its electronic ear on Santa Barbara from February 20-22, it will hear the city humming — literally. This weekend, Santa Barbara hosts the 50th anniversary conference for the Western Division of the American Choral Directors Association (WDACDA), and teachers, conductors, composers, singers, and voice aficionados of all stripes will be descending on our coastal mecca by the hundreds to talk shop, show their wares, and get inspired — and humbled — by the knowledge and talents of their peers. The anticipation is mounting like a crescendo, and every indication points to bright major sevenths in multiple octaves. After two years of planning, regiments of volunteers, assisted by the Santa Barbara County Arts Commission and city funds, have managed to secure headquarters at the Fess Parker DoubleTree Hotel, as well as primo performance venues like the Granada Theatre and the Old Mission. Headliners include the L.A. Master Chorale in a tribute to composer/honoree Morten Lauridsen; the English early-music ensemble Alamire; the Havana-based men’s group Camerata Vocal Sine Nomine de Cuba; and the pop beat-box sensation House Jacks. I sat down with WDACDA President and Westmont College Choral Director Steven Hodson and Program Chair and CSU Fresno Professor Emeritus Gary Unruh to gauge the pulse as they prepare for the downbeat.

Gary, you’ve been in Steve’s shoes and served as president, haven’t you? GU: Right. I had some inkling for what we’re in for, but this seems so much bigger than what we used to do. We put some new ideas into play this time that I don’t think anyone has ever done before, like trying to be more involved with the community, and making performances accessible to people who live here. There is a huge interest in classical music, and probably more in choral music than I’ve ever seen anywhere. ACDA boasts some 20,000 members, representing over a million singers. SH: There’s a large number of people singing, and it’s

growing these days. I think singing is reigniting around the nation. I wonder why that is. SH: Well, there is Glee and these pop a cappella groups. And there are studies that show how singing helps your health, your mental and emotional states, and all that. It’s percolating. From the beginning, these conferences have been a place for choral directors to come together and really build a family. It’s really felt that way to me over the years — to study the craft together, to have intersections, and to teach one another. They would always invite, by audition, the best choirs around to come and sing for them, so it would be edifying for the choir directors; for me it was always challenging, and sometimes frustrating, to hear these fabulous choirs and go home and work with mine and try to make them better. I noticed there are conference presentations on Chinese choral art, royal Hawaiian composers, and Islamic music. How has multiculturalism affected the ACDA through the years? SH: It is sort of a slam dunk in choral music, in a way, because all cultures sing. As you look through the repertoire that today’s choirs are singing, you will see that there’s a wide range of cultures represented. GU: Ron Kean [director of choral activities at Bakersfield College] was one of the first to do these presentations, but they started about 20 years ago out of these little interest sessions. A few people would come and think, “Well, this is not European-based,” and that meant there was no future in it. People have learned a lot since then. The ACDA Western Division Conference takes place Thursday-Saturday, February 20-22, at the Fess Parker DoubleTree Hotel. Public performances take place at various locations.

Three Santa Babara Debuts from Around the World

WOW, WOW, WOW, FELLAS

Fatoumata Diawara

Sally Struthers Says Hello as Dolly

THU, FEB 27 / 8 PM / UcsB cAMPBELL HALL

JEFFREY DICKAMORE

by Charles Donelan

HELLO, SALLY: Actor and spokesperson Sally Struthers (second from center left) takes on the title role in Theater League’s traveling production of Hello, Dolly!, which hits the stage at the Granada on February 25 and 26.

F

or sheer exuberance, there’s not much that can rival the title number in Jerry Herman’s classic Broadway musical Hello, Dolly! Through the magic of Gower Champion’s choreography, the relentless buildup of the star’s call and response with the staff at the Harmonia Gardens Restaurant takes on a fearsome momentum. Beginning as a simple playful list —“You’re looking swell, Manny,” etc. — the scene goes on to contain everything from knee slapping to a kick line and acrobatics. There’s room for an entire rainbow of emotions in this song, too, from the sunniest innocent yellows and pinks to the most salacious purples and even some of the truest blues. What does it take to carry it off? There have been so many great Dollys, from Ethel Merman and Carol Channing to Pearl Bailey, but what do they all have in common? The answer will be easy to see when Sally Struthers takes the Granada Theatre stage this week and shows that to triumph as Dolly, you’ve got to have the charisma of a Broadway star and the imagination of a comic actress. When I caught up with Struthers by phone recently, she was in Spokane and had just walked over a mile in the snow, but she was upbeat and cheerful as she pored over the details and the history of a show she clearly loves very much. “I first saw Hello, Dolly! with Pearl Bailey,” Struthers recalled. “It was a historic production and an all-black cast. … What I like about this production is the feeling of being at the helm of a big and talented young group,” Struthers said, adding that “the youngest female member of the cast is 19, but she looks 15, and the youngest male is 23, but he looks 17.” Speaking of the scale of this nationally touring production, Struthers said that “including the crew and the drivers, we are on the road with 54 people. It’s a great way to see America.” Asked about the tour’s reception, Struthers said that although the show “gets a roaring standing ovation every night,” there are big differences between the audiences.“Some audiences you can hear, so that you know when it’s working, but others are quiet, and I want to tell them, ‘We can’t hear you smiling.’ ” Struthers again emphasized the excitement of traveling across America in this most American of musicals and “meeting people and making friends in every state.”

Struthers knew all about the genesis of Dolly’s big number, an aspect of the role that she clearly relishes. “Nothing in real life can compare to what happens in the Harmonia Gardens number. Gower Champion spent more time on that one scene than he did on anything else in the show. The show didn’t completely work at first. They took it around to other cities, trying different things out before opening on Broadway, but once Hello, Dolly! got there, it assumed the place that it has in theater history today.” And what place is that? “Top five for sure,” said Struthers.“I even think top three, up with South Pacific and West Side Story.” If you would like to see just how Dolly keeps “glowin’, crowin’, and goin’ strong,” there’s still time to get to either of these performances and to enjoy Sally Struthers at the helm of this big beautiful ship. Theater League brings Hello, Dolly! to the Granada Theatre (1214 State St.) on TuesdayWednesday, February 25-26, at 8 p.m. For tickets and information, call 899-2222 or visit granadasb.org.

AROUND THE WORLD,

Best of the 38th Annual

by Josef Woodard

METHENY, 2014 MODEL:

Santa Barbara has been lucky over the decades to be privy, in an up-close-and-personal way, with jazz guitar great Pat Metheny’s long and winding musical life. Something about catching musicians live, especially with masters in the in-the-moment forum of jazz, etches the experience into your memory banks, and there have been many memorable Metheny moments in the , which we can cross-reference and organize into our collective mental/cultural filing system. IT’S PAT: Pat Metheny returns His last two shows in town to town with his Unity Group on were his fantastical, high-flying Wednesday night. one-man contraptional circus of a show, called “Orchestrion,” at Campbell Hall, and two years ago, his fascinating Unity Group, at the Lobero. Wednesday at the Lobero, Metheny returns in Unity Group mode, but this time the band has morphed. Where the original quartet was a more organic, jazz-centric band, in which the presence of tenor sax great Chris Potter reminded us of Metheny’s old / band (which also played the Lobero, in the way back when), the expanded band, amended by the addition of multi-instrumentalist Giulio Carmassi, veers closer to the emotional, epic, and eclectic designs of the Pat Metheny Unity Group, as heard on the new album Kin (Z Y). Whatever the patina or flavor, a full and fulfilling night of musical fiber is pretty much guaranteed whenever Metheny takes the stage. Pat & Co. play the Lobero Theatre on Wednesday, February 26, at 8 p.m. Call 963-0761 or visit lobero.com for tickets and info.

NEW MALIAN PRINCESS OF SONG: In what is probably the (so-called) “world music” event of the season, the great young Malian singer Fatoumata Diawara brings her beguiling hybrid African-globalized artistic

voice to UCSB’s Campbell Hall on Thursday, February 27, at 8 p.m. Some Santa Barbarians will remember the show by reigning Malian vocalist queen Oumou Sangaré, a kind of mentor and cultural-spiritual guidance counselor for the actress-turned-musician and now Paris-based Diawara, whose 2012 debut album, Fatou, took the European airwaves by storm. The album is a stunner, a thing of quiet, deep, strong musical power, at once exotic and universal — the desired, magic blend. For tickets, call 893-3535 or visit artsandlectures.sa.ucsb .edu.

NAMM ECHOES: Come January, two major events in the musical universe

with similar-sounding names — NAMM and the Grammies — illustrate how truly diversified the world of music is, encompassing the normally Balkanized worlds of pop (in its myriad forms), classical, jazz, and other subgroupings under one proverbial roof. At 2014’s NAMM, Santa Barbara and the tri counties had its usual slice of the convention pie, especially over at the Seymour Duncan booth, a more scaled-down encore of its lavishly hip psychedelic hang zone of the 35thanniversary booth the company designed two years ago. S.L.O.-based Ernie Ball went all out, as usual, with a vaudevillian circus motif, and S.B. dotcom sensation Lynda.com had its own understated presence, part of a growing contingency at NAMM from the online/app landscape. One entry in the growing smartphone music-app department is the moForte, offering faux guitar apps for i-air guitarists. The inspiring story of the revival of the Moog company continues, gauged by the steady growth of the size of its NAMM booth, as a pioneering retro synth company, makers of cool neo-theremins, Moogerfoogers, and keyboards with actual knobs. Upstairs, Line 6, the go-to amp modeling company, stirred up excitement with its bizarre new AMPLIFi amp, which connects to cloud-sourced music and replicates the tone — as the demo guitarist did with AC/DC’s “Back in Black,” instantly channeling Angus Young’s tone. I had to process this strange magic by heading across the hall to the warm embrace of the Taylor acoustic guitar hangout. It’s a NAMM thing.

E. Randol Schoenberg The Recovery of Nazi-Looted Art: The Bloch-Bauer Klimt Paintings Thursday, February 20 / 8:00 p.m. / Free UCSB Lotte Lehmann Hall

The recent disclosure of more than 1,400 artworks found hidden in the Munich apartment of Cornelius Gurlitt has generated renewed interest in the subject of Nazi-looted art. The upcoming release of The Monuments Men, a film about the World War II platoon tasked by the Allies with preserving cultural treasures confiscated by the Nazis, promises to bring this relatively little-known subject to the attention of a worldwide audience. Against this backdrop, Los Angeles attorney E. Randol Schoenberg will present an illustrated talk focusing upon five paintings by Gustav Klimt that were stolen by the Nazis from the Viennese family of Ferdinand Bloch-Bauer in 1938. As a result of a landmark case that Schoenberg argued before the U.S. Supreme Court, the Klimt paintings—valued at over $325 million—were returned by Austria to their rightful heir in 2006.

THE FANTASTIC MR. SEITZ

DAVE BUNTING

New York Magazine Critic Pens The Wes Anderson Collection by Aly Comingore

F

or film geeks, music buffs, and Bill Murray fans, few things compare to the release of a new Wes Anderson film. In the 13 years since his Bottle Rocket hit the big screen, the Texas-born writer/ director has been meticulously crafting film after film, building a repertoire and style that is unequivocally Andersonian. On the visual front, his movies look and feel like tiny works of art, painstakingly detailed, brightly colored, and perfectly encapsulated in Anderson’s frame. The scripts are dry, witty, and almost music-like in their pacing. And the songs — oh the songs — run the gamut from British-invasion rock (Rushmore) to Portuguese takes on David Bowie classics (The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou) and are all flanked by Mark Mothersbaugh’s gorgeously tweeful original scores. This March, Anderson unveils his next, eighth film, The Grand Budapest Hotel, and in advance of the release, Abrams Books has released an ode to Anderson of their own. Like the films it chronicles, The Wes Anderson Collection is a dense and stylized anthology — part coffee-table book and part scrapbook-style art project. Written by New York Magazine critic and longtime Anderson friend Matt Zoller Seitz, it dissects the director’s films one by one and pairs all the pictures, posters, and illustrations with a lengthy interview about each. This weekend, Seitz comes to town to discuss and sign his Collection. Recently, we talked movies, writing, and why he holds Anderson’s films so close to his heart. Was Wes on board with the book from the getgo? Not really. It took about a year to sort of put all the pieces together in terms of contracts and rights and all that business. There was also an element of reluctance on his part because, while he’s proud of his work, he doesn’t like to toot his own horn. He didn’t want to be seen as actively participating in the creation of his own myth. He made it very clear from the beginning that I was the author and he was the subject. There was never any confusion about that. How is he as an interview subject? He’s great. As long as you confine yourself to aesthetics and the details of the production, he’s incredibly forthcoming. But the closer you travel toward the core — to the middle of his personality — the more he tends to clam up.

What came as the biggest shock to you? I was pretty surprised to learn that Bill Murray made $9,000 for being in Rushmore, especially when you realize that he wrote a $25,000 check to Wes to pay for a helicopter shot that the studio wouldn’t pay for. If he [Anderson] had cashed that check, Bill Murray would have paid Wes for the privilege of acting in Rushmore. It would have been an even better story if he had cashed that check. How did Wes react to the finished book? He liked it. He liked it a lot. I didn’t have any real doubt that he wouldn’t. We’d been working on it for three years, and we didn’t start to show him proofs until the final year. He never had any negative or critical comments about it. I don’t think Wes would have agreed to do this book if he thought that my sensibility would result in something that he couldn’t stand to look at. And I’m happy to be proven right on that hunch.

Was there one film in particular that you were especially excited about dissecting? Probably The Life Aquatic, which is my personal favorite of his films. But I think the biggest surprise for me was Rushmore, which is, if not his most popular film, then certainly one of them. The thing that struck me about Rushmore is that even though it has this reputation for being a very light film — basically a comedy — the more you watch it, the more it feels like a drama, and the more the story of this motherless child begins to seem poignant rather than amusing. The fact that Max lost his mother at a young age just seems like an interesting and convenient biographical detail the first time you see it, but the more you watch, the move the more you realize the whole movie is really about that.

You’ve gracefully bowed out of reviewing these movies over the years, simply because you’re too close to the source. That said, what do you think is the biggest critical misconception about Wes’s films? There’s one thing that’s not a misconception necessarily but more a matter of taste, which is the idea that his movies are too stylish, that they are superficial. But that’s a complaint that a lot of visually interesting directors get. If you go and look back through the history of cinema, Alfred Hitchcock got that complaint, Stanley Kubrick got that complaint, Jacques Tati got that complaint. What do all these directors have in common? Well, the only thing they have in common is that they’re all really important filmmakers that people never get tired of watching. I think people are starting to figure out that Wes is a director of considerable depth, as well as cleverness, and that was honestly my main mission going into this project. People ask me why I wrote the book, and the main answer is “To get the rest of the world to see what I see when I look at Wes Anderson’s films.” That was always the mission. I could stand here at a cocktail party and explain it to you, but it would be much easier with pictures and text.

He/She Said/Did About Last Night. Kevin Hart, Michael Early, and Regina Hall star in a film written by Leslye Headland, based on the play Sexual Perversity in Chicago by David Mamet, and directed by Steve Pink. Reviewed by Josef Woodard

I

LATE-NIGHT ROM-COM: Regina Hall (left) elicits laughs with her licentious banter in About Last Night.

n the first five minutes of About Last Night, we get the picture that this is going to be a bumpier ride, at least as far as Valentine’s Day–timed rom-com movies go, as it lays into a vivid and detailed he-said/she-said recounting of a sexual encounter the night before. In the first half hour of the film, we get the idea that this is also a much smarter entry in the genre, partly thanks to its strong roots, a spin-off of David Mamet’s critically noted and anti-shy 1974 play Sexual Perversity in Chicago, which was then made into a film (starring Santa Barbara’s own Rob Lowe) in 1986. Mamet himself disowned that original film, which has been further adapted, reshaped, and re-contextualized here in screenwriter Leslye Headland’s script for a quartet of African-American characters in modern-day Los Angeles, replete with that all-important contemporary touch: smartphones. And yet Mamet’s wry, salty, and eventually sentimental voice is part of what sets the new film apart and above the norm for its ilk. In this clever and uncensored farce with real-life emotionality, the balance of two couples

in and out of love and lust plays out in a dramatic structure of flexible, interworking parts. Kevin Hart portrays the fast-talking and ribald foil to his handsome, more subtle and suave friend, played by Michael Early, and their female counterparts roughly match the degrees of licentious humors: Regina Hall is the game and randy sparring partner for Hart’s hyper gibes, and Joy Bryant the cooler-headed, relationshipseeking professional, a good match for Early’s character, though not immune to the rough patches and detours that come with the territory of love. In the soundtrack, crooner John Legend lines some of the more romantic scenery, to add pop-soul coating. And why not? Somehow, in some way, About Last Night is one of those rare movies that manage the balancing act of the warm fuzzies and the nasty scuzzies, in close proximity and interwoven as it goes. By the end, we know what hit us in terms of the old naughty/nice one-two, and it’s a mostly happy thing, at least by the modest standards of ■ the rom-com genre.

Pompeii (105 mins.; PG-13: intense battle

FIRST LOOKS ✯ About Last Night

(100 mins.; R: sexual content, language, brief drug use) Reviewed on page 55. Fairview/Fiesta 5

RoboCop (108 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of action including frenetic gun violence throughout, brief strong language, sensuality, some drug material) Reviewed on page 55. Camino Real/Metro 4

sequences, disaster-related action, brief sexual content)

A slave-turned-gladiator races against the clock to save his love and his city before Mount Vesuvius erupts and kills them all. Camino Real (2- D and 3-D)/ Metro 4 (2-D and 3-D)

SCREENINGS Banff Mountain Film Festival

(110 mins.; R: sexual content, some graphic nudity, drug use, language)

See p. 53.

If the idea of spending two hours in the theater for a slice-of-life saga about a 58-year-old Chilean divorcée roughing the romantic game gives you pause, think again: Gloria is a disarmingly engrossing, altogether remarkable piece of cinema, principally thanks to the quiet charismatic force that is “Gloria.” As an older woman grappling with life in a later chapter, actress Paulina García consumes much of the screen time in director Sebastián Lelio’s film, and she winningly owns the role, while handily suspending our disbelief. Wisely and with an effective dramatic tack, Lelio adheres to the para-documentary style of handheld camera work, giving us the feeling of following the action as it unfolds. When Rodolfo, Gloria’s wouldbe new/old lover, makes the first move, in a club, he asks the relevant question, “Are you always this happy?” Of course, she’s less happy than her contentment-suggestive expression might indicate, but she is a resilient sort, eager to experience life and love, but also intent on maintaining her dignity in the face of abuses. Deep into the film, after we’ve grown to know and love the protagonist, suddenly there is a striking shot of her, nude on a bed next to her neighbor’s hairless cat. Other shots resonate with emotional or symbolic meaning, from a lingering, memento mori–like take of a skeleton marionette’s dance to a drunken late-night moment on a merry-go-round. By film’s end, we feel that we’ve made a moving journey into the life and heart of a Chilean woman in a late-inning search of self, serving as a vehicle for a slice of cinema worth savoring. (JW) Plaza de Oro

Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy?

3 Days to Kill

(113 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of violence and action, some sensuality, language)

A terminally ill Secret Service Agent (Kevin Costner) is offered an experimental drug that could save his life in exchange for working one final assignment. Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo In Secret (101 mins.; R: sexual content, brief violent images)

Set in 1860s Paris, this film tells the story of a young woman trapped in a loveless marriage to her sickly cousin. When she meets his friend Laurent, she begins an illicit affair that has horrific consequences. Riviera

Non-Stop (106 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of action and violence, some language, sensuality, drug references)

An air marshal (Liam Neeson) is called upon during a transatlantic flight when he receives a series of text messages demanding that the airline transfer money into an offshore account. Camino Real/ Metro 4 (Opens Thu., Feb. 27)

Fiesta 5 (Also screens Fri., Feb. 21, 7 and 10pm; Mon., Feb. 24, 7 and 10pm, Isla Vista Theater, 960 Embarcadero del Norte)

✯ The Lego Movie

(100 mins.; PG: mild

action, rude humor)

✯ Gloria

PREMIERES

teeming with references to modern science and modern existential angst. (JW)

(88 mins.; NR)

Michel Gondry writes, directs, and stars in this animated conversation with famed philosopher and activist Noam Chomsky. Mon., Feb. 24, 7pm, UCSB’s Multicultural Center

Oscar Nominated Documentary Shorts (187 mins.; NR) The five Academy Award–nominated documentary shorts films will screen in succession. Nominees include The Lady in Number 6: Music Saved My Life, Karama Has No Walls, Facing Fear, Cavedigger, and Prison Terminal: The Last Days of Private Jack Hall. Wed., Feb. 26, 7:30pm, Plaza de Oro

NOW SHOWING ✯ American Hustle

(138 mins.; R: pervasive language, some sexual content, brief violence)

David O. Russell (Silver Linings Playbook) writes and directs this drama about a 1970s con man and his partner, who are forced into working for a loose-cannon FBI agent. Russell’s latest film takes its place in the ranks of conning-the-conner cinema lorded over by greats like The Grifters and Catch Me If You Can in which wits and kitsch prevail even as violence lurks around every corner. (JW) Metro 4

✯ August: Osage County (121 mins.; R: language including sexual references, drug material) Three strong-willed sisters converge on their childhood home following a family crisis. Even as the sometimes too-overthe-top film tests our patience, the continuing saving grace comes in the form of Meryl Streep, again confirming our suspicions that she may be the reigning queen of living American film actresses. (JW) Plaza de Oro

Endless Love (103 mins.; PG-13: sexual content, brief partial nudity, some language, teen partying)

An upper-class girl and a charming young boy are drawn together. As their parents try to keep them apart, their lust continues to intensify. Camino Real/Fiesta 5

✯ Frozen (108 mins.; PG: some action, mild rude humor) Anna and Kristoff unite on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister Elsa and rescue their kingdom from an endless winter. (DJP) Metro 4 (2-D)

✯ Gravity (91 mins.; PG-13: intense perilous sequences, some disturbing images, brief strong language)

A medical engineer (Sandra Bullock) and an astronaut (George Clooney) struggle to survive after an accident leaves them floating in space. Gravity is a beautifully realized, spare, yet genuinely spacious film,

A lowly Lego mini-figure is mistakenly recruited to help stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together. The nature of Lego is the creation of lands, environments, and worlds, and the true strength of this wacky movie is the way it keeps breaking walls and entering new dimensions. (DJP) Fairview (2-D and 3-D)/

Local. Audited. Verified. Proven.

Fiesta 5 (2-D and 3-D)

✯ Lone Survivor (121 mins.; R: strong bloody war violence, pervasive language) Peter Berg writes and directs this truelife tale of the four Navy SEALs who were tasked to capture or kill Taliban leader Ahmad Shahd. The underlying sense of contemporary, unresolved conflict makes the visceral gunplay of these action figures all the more painful and poignant. (JW) Fairview

The Monuments Men (118 mins.; PG-13: some images of war violence, historical smoking)

An unlikely World War II platoon is charged with returning Nazi-stolen art masterpieces to their rightful owners. Bill Murray, George Clooney, and Matt Damon star. Despite its major players, not much in the way of acting is required in this sentimental and fairly inert film, and not much is offered. (JW) Camino Real/Paseo Nuevo

✯ Philomena (98 mins.; PG-13: some strong language, thematic elements, sexual references) A journalist picks up a story about an older woman searching for her son, who was taken from her decades ago after she was forced into a convent. Steve Coogan abandons his smart hipster shtick to play reporter Martin Sixsmith, and the results are surprisingly moving. Paseo Nuevo Ride Along (100 mins.; PG-13: sequences of violence, sexual content, brief strong language)

A security guard (Kevin Hart) accompanies his girlfriend’s cop brother (Ice Cube) on a ride-along in an attempt to prove himself. The movie doesn’t exactly waste your time so much as it fails to improve it, thanks in part to its Beverly Hills Cop clone feel. (DJP) Fiesta 5

The largest circulation newspaper in Santa Barbara County, with 40,000 issues every Thursday.

That Awkward Moment (94 mins.; R: sexual content, language throughout)

Three best friends find themselves at the same inevitable turning point in their respective romantic relationships. (DJP) Fiesta 5

The Wolf of Wall Street (180 mins.; R: sequences of strong sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use, language throughout, some violence)

Leonardo DiCaprio stars as Jordan Belfort, a real-life stockbroker who falls from grace in a plot involving crime, corruption, and the U.S. government. Wolf has absolutely fabulous levels of fun, black humor, beauty, and vice, but in the end, it all seems a long, loud, ultimately empty howl. (DJP) Metro 4 february 20, 2014

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF FEBRUARY  ARIES (Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): A woman from New Mexico wrote to tell me that after reading my horoscopes for three years in the Santa Fe Reporter, she had decided to stop.“I changed my beliefs,” she said. “I no longer resonate with your philosophy.” On the one hand, I was sad that I had lost a reader. On the other hand, I admired her for being able to transform her beliefs, and also for taking practical action to enforce her shift in perspective. That’s the kind of purposeful metamorphosis I recommend for you, Aries. What ideas are you ready to shed? What theories no longer explain the nature of life to your satisfaction? Be ruthless in cutting away the thoughts that no longer work for you.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): In Arthurian legend, Camelot was the castle where King Arthur held court and ruled his kingdom. It housed the Round Table, where Arthur’s knights congregated for important events. Until recently, I had always imagined that the table was relatively small and the number of knights few. But then I discovered that several old stories say there was enough room for 150 knights. It wasn’t an exclusive, elitist group. I suspect you will experience a similar evolution, Taurus. You may be wishing you could become part of a certain circle, but assume it’s too exclusive or selective to welcome you as a member. I suspect it’s more receptive and inclusive than you think.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): The renowned Lakota medicine man Sitting Bull (1831-1890) wasn’t born with that name. For the first years of his life, he was known as Jumping Badger. His father renamed him when he was a teenager after he demonstrated exceptional courage in battle. I’d like to see you consider a similar transition in the coming months, Gemini. You’re due to add some gravitas to your approach. The tides of destiny are calling you to move more deliberately and take greater care with the details. Are you willing to experiment with being solid and stable? The more willing you are to assume added

responsibility, the more interesting that responsibility is likely to be.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22): The English noun “offing” refers to the farthest reach of the ocean that is still visible as you stand on the beach. It’s a good symbol for something that is at a distance from you and yet still within view. I suggest that you take a long thoughtful look at the metaphorical offing that’s visible from where you stand. You’ll be wise to identify what’s looming for you in the future so you can start working to ensure you will get the best possible version of it.

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): A large plaster Buddha statue was housed at a modest temple in Bangkok, Thailand, from 1935 to 1955. No one knew its age or origins. In May of 1955, workers were struggling to move the heavy ten-foot icon to a new building on the temple grounds when it accidentally broke free of the ropes that secured it. As it hit the ground, a chunk of plaster fell off, revealing a sheen of gold beneath. Religious leaders authorized the removal of the remaining plaster surface. Hidden inside was a solid gold Buddha that is today worth $250 million dollars. Research later revealed that the plaster had been applied by 18th-century monks to prevent the statue from being looted. I foresee a comparable sequence unfolding in the coming weeks for you, Leo. What will it take to free a valuable resource that’s concealed within a cheap veneer?

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Holistic health teacher Deepak Chopra suggests that we all periodically make this statement: “Every decision I make is a choice between a grievance and a miracle. I relinquish all regrets, grievances, and resentments, and choose the miracle.” Is that too New Age for you, Virgo? I hope you can drop any prejudices you might have about it and simply make it your own. It’s the precise formula you need to spin this week’s events in the right direction — working for you rather than against you.

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): In the savannas of Africa, waterholes are crucial for life. During the rainy season, there are enough to go around for every animal species to drink and bathe in comfortably. But the dry season shrinks the size and number of the waterholes. The impala may have to share with the hippopotamus, the giraffe with the warthog. Let’s use this as a metaphor to speculate about your future. I’m guessing that the dry season will soon be arriving in your part of the world. The waterholes may dwindle. But that could ultimately prove to be a lucky development, because it will bring you into contact with interesting life forms you might not have otherwise met. Unexpected new alliances could emerge.

(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Is there one simple thing you could do to bring a bit more freedom into your life? An elegant rebellion against an oppressive circumstance? A compassionate breakaway from a poignant encumbrance? A flash of unpredictable behavior that would help you escape a puzzling compromise? I’m not talking about a huge, dramatic move that would completely sever you from all of your burdens and limitations. I’m imagining a small step you could take to get a taste of spaciousness and a hint of greater fluidity. That’s your assignment in the coming week.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): In his book The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human, literary scholar Jonathan Gottschall muses on the crucial role that imagination plays in our lives.“[The] average daydream is about fourteen seconds long and [we] have about two thousand of them per day,” he says. “In other words, we spend about half of our waking hours — one-third of our lives on earth — spinning fantasies.” I bring this to your attention, Scorpio, because you are entering a phase when your daydreams can serve you well. They’re more likely than usual to be creative, productive, and useful. Monitor them closely.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): The Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich wrote his Eighth Symphony in a mere two months during the summer of 1943. He worked on it in an old henhouse on a former chicken farm. The location helped relax him, allowing him to work with extra intensity. I wish you could find a retreat like that for yourself sometime soon, Sagittarius. I think you would benefit from going off by yourself to a sanctuary and having some nice long talks with your ancestors, the spirits of nature, and your deepest self. If that’s not practical right now, what would be the next best thing you could do?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): There are 15,074 lakes in Wisconsin, but more than 9,000 of them have never been officially named. That’s strange to me. In my view, everything is worthy of the love that is bestowed by giving it a name. I have named every tree and bush in my yard, as well as each egret that frequents the creek flowing by my house. I understand that at the Findhorn community in northern Scotland, people even give names to their cars and toasters and washing machines. According to researchers in the UK, cows that have names are happier: They produce more milk. Your assignment, Aquarius, is to name at least some of the unnamed things in your world. It’s an excellent time to cultivate a closer, warmer personal relationship with absolutely everything.

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): From 2010 to 2012, Eric Garcetti worked as an actor on the TV cop shows The Closer and its spin-off series Major Crimes. He played the mayor of Los Angeles. Then in 2013, he ran for the office of L.A.’s mayor in real life, and won. It was a spectacular example of Kurt Vonnegut’s suggestion that we tend to become what we pretend to be. Your assignment, Pisces, is to make good use of this principle. I invite you to experiment with pretending to be the person you would like to turn into.

WINE GUIDE Wine of the Week Michael David Winery 6th Sense Syrah Lodi 2011 Although the chilly and challenging growing season of 2011 is making for a vintage of leaner, perhaps even occasionally thin wines from California’s more coastally influenced appellations, this syrah from the relatively warmer growing region of Lodi manages to remain opulent, with oak, bacon, smoke, tobacco, and herbs converging into a delicious glass. The name is a nod to vineyard manager Kevin Phillips, who is the sixth generation of his family to be growing grapes on their property, which includes the syrah vineyard that was one of the state’s first for the Rhone Valley grape when planted in 1982. And when you’re done with the wine — which won “best in class” at last year’s state fair — spin the bottle and look inside to find Kevin’s eye staring back at you, making sure you enjoyed every last drop.

NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding

liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, this information can be

I am a favorite, I’ve been here way too long. I need a home!! I come with some GREAT perks! Because I’m so special, I have a Sponsor who is offering to my new owner upon my adoption, eight one‑ on‑one training sessions with Nathan Woods, Dog Trainer and Owner of Santa Barbara Pet Services. Nathan specializes in training Boxers & Bull Dogs and their owners. My Sponsor will add another 8 sessions paid in full upon request to Nathan. In addition, although I am a healthy girl, I know even basic Veterinary Care can be expensive. My Sponsor is also offering to pay for my basic vet services from Adobe Pet Clinic up to $500/year for 5 years that includes Immunizations, Annual Wellness Exam, and Teeth Cleaning etc. I am a good dog with a good heart, but I need an owner who is willing to work with me.
