For the cover of this year’s Blue & Green issue, we asked Santa Barbara native Jeremy Harper to contribute one of his bright plein-air oil paintings. Harper, a San Francisco Art Institute graduate, has been drawing and painting since early childhood. He remained in San Francisco after graduating in 1994, teaching art at New Traditions elementary school. Harper is now a permanent member of the illustrious Oak Group in Santa Barbara, and he spends his time painting plein air here along the Pacific Coast.

News of the Week

Dan Ast

STRENGTH IN SOLITUDE: Jeremy, shown with canine companion Spokane, quietly works the 600 block of State Street. He blames the young urban travelers for ruining State Street for everyone. “When you build up in groups, you cause a problem,” he said. “When you stay by yourself, people like you.”

Curbing Urban Travelers Poop-and-Pee Ordinance Proposed

J

BY N I C K W E L S H ust one week after the Santa Barbara City Council agreed to budget an additional $300,000 a year to beef up law enforcement presence on State Street to keep aggressive panhandlers and unruly street people in check, the council’s Ordinance Committee explored a wide range of proposals designed to curb aggressive panhandlers and give City Hall a new enforcement tool to deal with public urination and defecation. Leading the charge were councilmembers Frank Hotchkiss and Randy Rowse, who stressed they were targeting offensive behavior with the new ordinances but not any groups in particular. It’s clear, however, the abiding issue for State Street merchants and visitors is what law enforcement refers to as “young urban travelers,” or YUTs. They blow through town in successive waves and, while here, congregate in clusters — with dogs and backpacks in tow — on lower State Street sidewalks and benches. In contrast to street people a couple of blocks north — who typically have longer tenure in Santa Barbara — the YUTs are more prone to verbal aggression and other forms of pack behavior that make passersby uncomfortable. Among the measures under consideration is a proposal to prohibit groups from “congregating in a manner that blocks the free movement of pedestrian traffic on our downtown sidewalks.” Another would restrict the hours anyone can sit or lie on the sidewalk. Current law bans sitting and lying between 7 a.m. - 9 p.m. If the new measure is approved, such behavior would be prohibited 7 a.m. - 2 a.m. City Attorney Ariel Calonne cautioned committee members they could be violating the 10

THE INDEPENDENT

constitutional prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment. That problem might arise, he noted, if there are “insufficient shelter beds” and the city has effectively criminalized “sitting, lying, or sleeping at night while being involuntarily homeless.” In addition, the committee considered measures that would limit the amount of time any one person could spend on a given downtown bench and tighten laws banning street peddling of any sort. Such changes could effectively call into question the legality of many street musicians, who typically collect money in guitar cases or hats placed on the sidewalk. One change likely to pass is a proposal to expand the space “active” panhandlers have to maintain between themselves and people waiting in line near ATM machines. The current ordinance requires a 25-foot buffer; the new language would expand that to 80 feet. For the past year, it turns out, Santa Barbara has found itself without an ordinance enabling it to take action against people who urinate and defecate in public. That’s because local courts began interpreting the laws in such a way that breaking them meant filing misdemeanor charges rather than infractions. Because the city attorney lacks legal authority to prosecute anything but infractions, he was forced to ask the District Attorney to file misdemeanors for public elimination. Because those facing such charges are entitled by law to jury trials, the DA has not been inclined to do so.“No one thought it would be a good use of resources to have a jury trial for urinating in public,” Calonne said. In the meantime, city cops have cobbled together a makeshift solution, charging violators under a

state law banning littering. The plethora of new measures designed to discourage obnoxious behavior by street people comes just one week after the City Council voted to spend an additional $150,000 to hire an additional cop. In so doing, the councilmembers made it abundantly clear they expected Police Chief Cam Sanchez to assign this officer to State Street to reassure tourists and residents uncomfortable at the prospect of going downtown. In addition, the council approved spending $150,000 more to pay for private security personnel to patrol State Street, especially the , , and  blocks. Already city cops have stepped up their presence on those blocks. Between March 10 and April 6, they made 18 felony arrests, 47 misdemeanor arrests, and issued 596 misdemeanor citations. Hotchkiss expressed interest in exploring Santa Maria’s ordinance that bans profane behavior. Calonne suggested that vulgar language alone was insufficient for police intervention, pointing out that the city’s existing ordinance already bans any language that might incite “immediate violent response.” Calonne warned the committee from taking any action that could be construed as targeting any particular group. Likewise, he cautioned that panhandling is deemed by the courts to be free speech, so any restrictions in the time, manner, or place had to be sufficiently open-ended to allow ample avenues for other options. No advocates for homeless rights spoke or were in attendance. The matter will go back to the Ordinance Committee one more time. After that, it would be referred to the council as a whole for ■ action.

The arbitration hearing of former Santa Maria police lieutenant Dan Ast will continue on 7/28 after five days of statements and testimony ran over the hearing’s allotted time last week. Ast was fired after the fatally botched arrest of a fellow officer, but he’s arguing his termination was the result of a major whistleblower complaint he filed in the weeks leading up to the incident. The City of Santa Maria has argued that Ast was incompetent in his duties; Ast has countered he was unjustly retaliated against. The owner of seven show horses hurt and killed when their trailer nearly overturned on Old San Marcos Road in March has sued the trailer driver and his hauling company for more than $1 million in damages. Shan de Wey, a sixth-generation horse breeder and trainer from Termo, California, claims Mathew Gillispie of Triple-ACRanch in Arizona broke their contract when he picked up an eighth horse without her knowledge and took a 260-mile detour to drop it off in Santa Barbara. Two of de Wey’s horses died as a result of the accident, and the rest were injured, some severely. (More at independent.com/news.) In connection with a slip-and-fall personalinjury complaint filed by a Carpinteria tenant, Judge Colleen Sterne rejected arguments by landlord Dario Pini’s attorney that Pini could not get a fair trial anywhere in Santa Barbara County because of negative media coverage about the substandard quality of his properties. Sterne said the seven news articles cited by the defense team were insufficient to show public sentiment had been poisoned against the wellknown landlord. (More at independent.com /news.)

CITY Assistant City Administrator Paul Casey and Councilmember Dale Francisco traveled to Sacramento this week to make their case to the state regulatory agencies with oversight for the licensing of coastal desalination plants with the hope that Santa Barbara’s permits for its long-mothballed desal plant could be deemed valid in case the drought continues. Casey said he felt “really happy” about his conversations about the matter, though he cautioned nothing has been put in writing yet. (More at independent.com/news.)

their own risk. Shark sightings — and sightings involving shark attacks on marine mammals — have increased in recent years. Regulations limiting the use of gill nets close to shore — which routinely killed many juvenile great whites — has resulted in an increase in shark populations. Likewise, federal regulations protecting sea lions and seals has led to a ten-fold increase in sea mammal populations in state coastal waters.

COUNTY Orange mesh fencing is cropping up along the bluffs of Isla Vista this week and next. The temporary fencing installed along the ocean side of five public parks will fortify existing low wooden railings and also form barriers where none currently exist. The county — which owns some of the parks while Isla Vista Recreation & Park District manages others — secured an emergency 30-day permit from the California Coastal Commission, and UCSB provided the funds. Since 2010, 20 people have sustained injuries from falling off the cliffs, and three have died. The Goleta City Council will interview seven candidates on 6/12 to fill departed councilmember Ed Easton’s seat through 2016; Easton resigned in May after moving outside city limits. The council decided earlier to go through the appointment process to find a replacement by July. The applicants are Eric Onnen, planning commissioner and former councilmember; Bill Shelor, member of the Design Review Board and former planning commissioner; Julie Solomon, planning commissioner; Tony Vallejo, accountant and former Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce chair; Dayton Aldrich; Catriona Orosco; and Aaron Swaney.

The Department of Justice is currently investigating the conduct of Congressmember Lois Capps’s field representative Mollie Culver in response to allegations made by the Santa Barbara News-Press that Culver acted improperly after her coworker Raymond Morua killed Mallory Dies in a drunken hit-and-run accident the night of December 6. Morua was extremely intoxicated at the time, and Culver has since been accused by Morua — in the pages of the News-Press — of forging his name on documents to enroll him in a rehab facility. Morua was in custody at the time. Capps spokesperson Chris Meagher — a former Independent reporter — declined to comment on any specific allegations, citing the advice of legal counsel. Mollie Culver Dies’s parents have sued Capps, charging that Morua was working for her at the time of the fatal accident and that Capps was legally responsible for her employee’s misconduct. Capps has denied this. “Our office welcomes the DOJ’s inquiry,” stated Meagher, “which will enable the community to move past the false allegations asserted in tabloid media coverage.” Spokespersons for the Department of Justice, the FBI, the District Attorney, and the U.S. Attorney’s office all declined to comment on the record. Morua attended a Christmas party hosted by The Independent the night of the accident, where he became intoxicated at a no-host bar. The accident occurred two hours after that party ended. Whether Morua was representing Capps or not has been the subject of an intense debate. Morua and the Dies family have joined together in an uncommon bond to insist that he was and to pillory Capps for not agreeing. What prompted the Department of Justice investigation remains open to some speculation, but the News-Press ran a five-part series asserting that Capps and her staff engaged in misconduct. Morua, who had two prior DUIs at the time of the accident, was sentenced — Nick Welsh this month to 20 years to life in prison.

response to the county’s application to keep the rocks, said Renée Bahl, assistant county CEO and interim Community Services director. The Board of Supervisors voted unanimously in March to request that the rocks remain, a decision years in the making that was preceded by much speculation, especially in the race for supervisor for the 2nd District, which includes the beach. UCSB and the Trust for Public Land are working on a plan to restore the former Ocean Meadows Golf Course to its natural state. Three design options are in the running; all feature natural open space, trails, and boardwalks for public access and passive recreation, and also restoration and preservation of habitat along Devereux Creek. The historic wetland had been filled in with more than one million cubic yards of soil in 1965 to create the nine-hole course. (More at openspace.vcadmin.ucsb.edu.) The northbound on-ramp to Highway 101 at Fairview Avenue will be closed for six to nine months starting late evening 6/16. The closure is due to drainage improvements being made along Las Vegas and San Pedro creeks in Goleta. The project will also include reconstruction of the southbound off-ramp at Fairview Avenue and flood prevention north of Calle Real and the highway. For traffic updates, call 568-0858.

Coach Arrested for Sex with Student Is Latest Case an Isolated Incident or Part of a Troublesome Trend?

W

BY T Y L E R H AY D E N

hile they haven’t publicly announced it, there is real concern among some law enforcement officials that the Santa Barbara Unified School District has a problem on its hands. For the third time in recent years, a district coach has been arrested for sexual misconduct with an underage player. The latest incident, involving 38-year-old Vic Alvarez, the girls softball coach at Santa Barbara High School, echoes Justin Sell’s case from 2013 as well as the most recent prosecution of Peter Jeschke in 2011. Alvarez was booked May 14 in County Jail on a single count of “unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.” He was cited and released and appeared in court last week, but his arraignment was delayed as the District Attorney’s Office considers if and when to file charges. Alvarez, a Santa Barbara High School graduate with relatives in two local law enforcement agencies, started working as a campus security guard in 2011 before he became a walk-on softball coach in 2012. According to district spokesperson Brian Tanguay, the district started investigating Alvarez during the spring semester “based upon unconfirmed reports of irregular behavior.” Tanguay said Alvarez was placed on paid administrative leave on April 24 “for conduct unrelated to the current charges.” The nature of that conduct and the described “irregular behavior” isn’t clear. On May 6, the district filed a report with the police department and fired Alvarez from his coaching position,“but [Alvarez] remains on administrative leave from his other position in accordance with legal requirements,” Tanguay said. After a June 4 court hearing, Alvarez’s attorney, Josh Webb, spoke openly about the matter. Noting several times that the facts in the case have yet to be borne out,Webb said it’s his understanding that Alvarez and the female player, who graduated last Thursday, allegedly started their physical relationship in late February when she was a month or two away from turning 18. He explained the pair remain together and have the blessings of the teen’s parents.

While it was well-known among team members that the two were seeing each other, one or more of the players reportedly felt the teen received unfair extra playing time and lodged a complaint with school administration. Webb said Alvarez’s current charge, which can be filed as a misdemeanor or felony, is not an offense requiring sex-offender registration. “It’s a technical violation of law,” he went on, describing Alvarez as “a single man coaching a team who met a gal. He didn’t know if she was 18 or not. … He’s in love with her.”

PROBLEM OF PERCEPTION?

News of Alvarez’s arrest comes on the heels of reports this month that longtime AYSO coach Jose Diaz of Buellton has been charged with having sex with a teenage girl and that Santa Maria high school basketball coach Brian Hook is being prosecuted for an inappropriate relationship with a female student. These stories fit into the seemingly nonstop barrage of countrywide media broadcasts that detail illicit acts committed by teachers and coaches with their students and players. Opinions differ over why these types of crimes are — or merely seem — more common. Deputy District Attorney Benjamin Ladinig, a member of the DA Office’s Sexual Assault and Vulnerable Victims Unit, said “media coverage, the advent of the Internet, and the public’s access to information make the appearance that these cases have occurred more in recent years.” But that is simply not the case, he said. When asked if law enforcement agencies are more prone to distribute press releases about teacher/coach sex crimes compared to other statutory rape or child molestation incidents, Ladinig said not necessarily, “but because the possibility of educators or coaches having continued access to other children and/or other victims, sometimes press releases are necessary to inform and protect the public.” Lieutenant Kelly Moore, a lead investigator in the Sheriff ’s Office, agreed that “there is a fair amount of public interest in these types of cases. … It has to do with the shock and awe of cont’d page 15  a trusted relationship gone june 12, 2014

Of the 15,500 students in the Santa Barbara Unified School District, close to 5,000 are classified as English learners (EL). Though the number of eligible students who shook the EL label has increased the past two years — 77 percent of eligible students were reclassified as English proficient this year compared to 56 percent the year before — 672 students have been in the program for five years or more, said Assistant Superintendent Emilio Handall at Tuesday’s board meeting. Also alarming is that 52 percent of specialAssistant Superintendent Emilio Handall education students are classified as English learners. “It is not appropriate,” acknowledged Superintendent David Cash. One of 21 recommendations made Tuesday to the board by the English learner advisory committee was the creation of a director of English learners position to work with parents. A rigorous assessment — coupled with teacher input — is required to shed the EL label that even native English students often have difficulty removing. “Year after year, 75 percent don’t pass,” said Handall of the testing process. “It’s a complete tragedy.” The difficulty rises when parents indicate on enrollment forms that a student lives with a non-English-speaking grandparent, even if the student does not speak a second language. The flip side of the coin is students who risk losing resources if they do not “check the box.” Though the daily activity for EL students is not considerably different at the elementary school level — they receive 30 minutes of English instruction daily — the problem surfaces, and the stigma potentially rises, at the junior high and high school level. Secondary EL students are required to take English support courses instead of electives. Further, the academic achievement of English learners declined by 14 percent in 2013. (The drop may be attributed to the transition to Common Core, Handall said.) Money-wise, schools receive an additional $81 per year for each pupil who is an EL student, low-income, or foster youth. At a State of the Schools address last year, some argued that schools kept EL students classified so that they would receive more money, an idea that Cash simply called “false.” Notably, Latino parents have showed up in high numbers at several of the past board meetings to weigh in on the Local Control Accountability Plan, which will implement an EL director when finalized at the next meeting and accompanies a new statewide funding formula aimed at increasing — Kelsey Brugger money for districts with higher underrepresented populations.

A California judge ruled teacher tenure unconstitutional on Tuesday. The unprecedented verdict follows a lawsuit that contended laws protecting educator jobs violates students’ rights to equitable instruction. But union leaders call the decision an attack on teachers and due process of termination. Disappointed with the verdict, Santa Barbara Teachers Association president John Houchin said the evidence failed to produce a student who could demonstrate that the current laws harmed him or her and that he “looks forward to a better decision on appeal.” S.B. Unified School District administrators could not immediately say what the ruling will mean locally.

fter nearly a decade of appeals, the Chumash announced Friday that the Interior Board of Indian Appeals (IBIA) ruled in favor of placing a 6.9-acre plot of Santa Ynez Valley land into federal trust and into the hands of the tribe. Standing on the bare parcel located across Highway  opposite the Chumash Casino, tribal chair Vincent Armenta told reporters the decision — which will become final in early July and exempts the land from county taxation — is one of the most significant the Chumash have ever seen. For years, two conflicting points of view have surrounded the acquisition. The Chumash have long said they solely intend to build a museum on the plot. “Since we applied for this application, we actually started collecting items to put in our museum,” said Armenta. “We now have the largest collection of Chumash baskets in the world.” But opponents — active in groups such as Preservation of Los Olivos (POLO), among others — have con-

tended that nothing would stop the tribe from extending gambling to the site. POLO argued the tribe could have already built a cultural center had they complied with local zoning and building regulations. And POLO attorney Ken Williams claimed a federal judge told IBIA six years ago that POLO had legal standing to challenge the 6.9-acre fee-to-trust application, but IBIA ignored that decision. “P.O.L.O. will make its views known when this case is returned to the Federal Court,” Williams said in a statement. Third District Supervisor Doreen Farr said Friday that it is unfortunate the county will not be able to collect sales-tax revenue or funds generated from development of the site. “It’s not just for law enforcement and fire, but [also for] roads and other things,” she said. Farr added she didn’t get the sense that the community was “wholeheartedly” opposed to the creation of a museum. “There are varying opinions about fee-to-trust philosophically,” she said. ■

easure M didn’t pass the sniff test with voters last week, but its scent carried over to the supervisors’ budget discussion on Monday, with arguments over how to address county maintenance costs. Nearly 52 percent of voters rejected Measure M — those in North County and Isla Vista were more supportive of it; City of Santa Barbara residents especially weren’t — but its champion, Supervisor Peter Adam, stuck with his mantra that more needs to be done. “The people older than me are having a party, and the people younger than me are going to get the hangover,” he said. The other four supervisors favor a funding scheme similar to the one for the planned North County Jail, where money is set aside incrementally every year based on growing revenues; they can choose between set percentages, which they can change depending on the economy. County staff would have discretion over how that money is divided among the facilities’ annual upkeep ($17 million-$39 million) and those facilities’ backlog ($257 million for roads, $84 million for parks and buildings). Auditor-Controller Bob Geis,

with whom Adam engaged in a feisty backand-forth, pointed to the money included in the budget for all maintenance — $35.1 million in new and ongoing monies — and explained, “It’s not that we’re not doing anything.” Still, Adam said Monday he would propose something “more aggressive” at Wednesday’s hearing, where the supervisors were scheduled to finalize the budget and further discuss maintenance. (That meeting occurred after press time; visit independent.com for an update.) The hours leading up to the maintenance talk provided a broad overview of the 20142015 budget, which will see revenues ($905 million) exceed expenditures ($903 million) for the first time in many years. The county will add 115 jobs to its roster — many related to the Affordable Care Act — for a total of 4,119 positions. Also noted Tuesday but not elaborated on was that operating costs for the entire North County Jail campus — including the recidivism-reducing wing — are expected to hover around $17.3 million; in April, the Sheriff said the main portion, minus that wing, would cost $15.8 million. An update on those costs is ■ scheduled for July.

Coach Arrest cont’d from p. 11 south.” Moore said the majority of statutory rape cases stem from a relationship between two young people of similar ages that took a turn for the worse — a pair of 16- and 19-yearolds, he gave as an example, and “maybe the mom didn’t like the kid.” But no matter what the victim believes, Moore went on, he or she can’t give legal consent under California law. While other states have lowered the age of consent to 17 or 16 years old, California’s remains at 18. Moore believes it is impossible to stereotype offenders with universally common traits. “From our perspective, these guys are predators,” he said. “Are they a wolf, dog, bear, lion? We can’t always say, but they’re all predators.” The degree of menace varies case by case, he went on, and some suspects “simply shouldn’t have let themselves get in that position.”

IN THE FIELD

A number of Santa Barbara Unified School District coaches and athletic directors, who all wished to remain anonymous, agreed the dynamic that develops between a player and

forms, child-abuse reporting requirements, and ethical-conduct notices. If a person is hired but then gets arrested, the district is immediately notified by the state, and a decision to terminate is based on whether or not the offense violated the California Education Code. Direct oversight takes place at the school, and supervision of coaches is the responsibility of each campus’s athletic director. Sexual relations between a teacher or coach and a student are prohibited, even if the student is 18 or older.

ACTION BEFORE ABUSE

Yesenia Curiel with the Santa Barbara Rape Crisis Center said her organization regularly speaks to students about sexual assault and what it means to give legal consent. While more statutory rape cases are being reported because of better education and support systems, she believes that the overall incident rate is also on the rise. The Rape Crisis Center conducts in-class discussions multiple times a year, reminding students that sexual assaults are more likely

‘We can do everything right, and it can still happen. It’s our worst nightmare.’ — An athletic director describing the district’s screening process and the fallout that occurs when a coach abuses his or her power.

a coach can reach levels of trust and intimacy comparable to the closeness of child and parent. Students are often around their coaches more than their teachers — for four years of high school that includes after-hours practices, road games, and so on — and sometimes feel more comfortable opening up to them than anyone else. “It’s an extremely high level of trust,” said one coach, “so when a person violates it, it’s really painful.” Another source said the district does a commendable job of educating coaches and staff about appropriate boundaries and that allegations are investigated swiftly and thoroughly, with zero tolerance for any misconduct. “There are no second chances,” one source said. Another fired a coach simply because the coach made the players uncomfortable, explaining, “I hated doing it, but kids feeling safe is the most important thing.” The consensus is that these inappropriate relationships have always occurred but that school districts across the country are simply “dealing with the situations now as they always should have been.” Background checks weed out “most of the weirdos,” one athletic director said, “but there are always people with bad intentions. … We can do everything right, and it can still happen. It’s our worst nightmare.” District officials described their applicant screening process as “careful and rigorous.” The district currently employs 1,946 people — including part-timers — and, right now, it has 199 coaches who are not teachers. (Teachers are given the first priority on coaching positions, and those who coach receive stipends.) No data was available on how many coaches are also certified employees. Walk-on coaches like Alvarez are seasonal employees who must sign a number of contracts like nondiscrimination

to be committed by people close to the victim and that, while they are taught to be respectful of authority figures, “you still have the right to say no.” Coaches in particular engender deep feelings of trust, and players often feel “they want nothing but good things” for them, Curiel said, so the Rape Crisis Center hopes to offer more sit-downs with faculty and coaches in the future. Consensual cases can be especially challenging.“We try to educate survivors about the law and the dynamics of a healthy relationship,” she said, and case workers offer teens practical scenarios of how the relationship would be problematic: Public dates would be difficult if not impossible, for instance, and the normal teenage activities — like going to sports games and dances — would not be an option. When working with parents, Curiel talks about the long-term effects of abuse on a child’s development, noting that all members of her staff are bilingual, and part of their role is to educate newly immigrated cultures about California laws. “Sometimes there might be a challenge between traditions and beliefs and the law,” she said. Curiel’s organization also offers self-defense training, but the focus is on assertiveness and confidence skills to help teens protect themselves. Explained Curiel, “That can be more helpful than knowing where to kick somebody.”

Montecito Entitled to More Water? Some Residents Think So but Are Fined Heavily

PAU L WELLM AN PHOTOS

for Overuse During Drought

M

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

ontecito, the wealthiest and least water-secure community on the South Coast, is breaking its addiction to overwatering, even as some residents remain hooked. Strict rationing went into effect in Montecito in March to avert a looming shortage during the drought. Since then, the Montecito Water District has assessed $1.1 million in penalties against more than 800 customers for exceeding their water allocations, officials say — tough love for a community that prizes its leafy hedgerows, velvety lawns, and lushly landscaped estates. Dozens of customers are appealing their penalties, but the culture is changing, said Tom Mosby, the district’s general manager. Compared to the same months last year, he said, water use dropped 47 percent in March, 43 percent in April, and 38 percent in May. Lawns and golf courses are turning brown. “I’ve never seen anything like it,” Mosby said. “I’m in a state of shock. People are paying attention to their water bills. They’re getting on their hands and knees and reading their meters.” By contrast, with no penalties in the offing, Santa Barbara residents cut their water use by only 12 percent in March and 5 percent in April, officials said. But the city’s residential water use in 2013, during Year  of the ongoing drought, was 87 gallons per capita per day, compared to 320 gallons in Montecito, records show. “This is difficult,” said Darlene Bierig, president of the Montecito Water District’s board. “There are people who have extraordinary amounts of money invested in their landscape who are having to do triage. No one likes it. But water is precious, and we have to adapt.” At the same time, Mosby said, “There is a small minority that still believes they deserve grass.” Six hundred district customers were assessed penalties in April for exceeding their

DIGGING IN POCKETS AND DIRT: This estate in the Pepper Hill neighborhood of Montecito has replaced the lawn with artificial turf to weather the drought under strict water rationing. Overall, water use in Montecito dropped 38 percent in May, compared to May 2013, says Tom Mosby (below), Montecito Water District general manager. In search of private water supplies, a record number of Montecito homeowners — 51 — have applied to the county to drill new wells, including this one (inset) on Lilac Drive and Tollis Avenue.

water allocations, he said, and 811 were assessed in May, many for the second time. The district provides water to 4,360 customers, most of them homes, serving a population of 13,500 people in Montecito and Summerland. (The district denied a public records request filed by this reporter for the names and addresses of the top water users and the customers who have been penalized). To bypass rationing, some residents have resorted to trucking in water from elsewhere, installing temporary tanks on their property, and paying about 14 times the cost of district water for the service. A few are proposing to build new swimming pools and fill them with trucked-in water. Meanwhile, several dozen residents have applied to the county for permission to dig private wells, even as others abandon wells that have gone dry. And in the foothills, a hotel took water from a creek and was ordered to put the water back. Bierig is hoping Montecitans will look beyond the immediate crisis and come to terms

with the semi-arid Mediterranean climate of the region. “We have to live within our means,” she said. “We have to make a permanent change in our water philosophy. This drought has been a game-changer — the severity of it and the lack of backup supplies. I’m talking about drinking water security for Montecito. We cannot go back to our old ways.” Unlike other South Coast districts, Montecito does not have a significant supply of groundwater to help buffer a prolonged drought. Its reservoir supplies are shrinking fast. And like other districts, Montecito can count on only 5 percent of its water supply from the state aqueduct this year. Thanks to rationing, Mosby said, the district will be able to provide enough “inside” water next year for its customers to drink, bathe, and wash clothes, even if it doesn’t rain. But if the drought continues, he said, the district will need to purchase supplemental water, even with rationing, to continue providing water for landscaping. Seven of the top 10 residential water guzzlers of 2013 have slashed their district water use by 70 percent or more this year, Mosby said. And in May, he said, district use overall was 25 percent under allocations. The allocations are based on average use in dry years per customer category — single-family residential, multifamily, institutional, or agricultural. Size is factored in, too, since 40 percent of customers own one or more acres of land. Penalties for exceeding allocations go up sharply after the first month. The district reserves the right to shut off the water of repeat offenders.

In a rush to circumvent rationing, Montecitans have submitted 51 well applications during this fiscal year, more than in the last 13 years combined, according to county Environmental Health Services. On average, the county said, it costs between $40,000 and $50,000 to drill a single well. Other Montecitans have contracted with such companies as A- Water in Goleta, Aqua Truck Inc. in Santa Barbara, and Jimenez Nursery Inc. to import private water supplies. On one development application under review at the district, A- Water estimates it would cost $1,700 to deliver 20,000 gallons of water for a new pool. The district has stopped providing water for new swimming pools or for topping off existing pools, Mosby said, but it does not have jurisdiction over non-district water. “We don’t like it,” he said.“It’s still water from a groundwater basin on the South Coast. From a social consciousness standpoint, the entire community is suffering from a water emergency and people are trucking in water to fill their pools? Does that speak for itself?” The trucking doesn’t sit well with neighboring water districts, either. Beginning October 1, all South Coast water districts, including Montecito’s, are facing a 55 percent cut in their allocations from Lake Cachuma, the main water supply for the South Coast. “We would be really upset if anyone were using our groundwater for purposes outside the district,” said Charles Hamilton, general manager of the Carpinteria Valley Water District. “We don’t want people marketing water from our basin, certainly not in times of drought.” Last month, a Carpinteria district engineer spotted a water tanker filling up at a City of Carpinteria flood control channel that feeds into Franklin Creek, Hamilton said. And someone called the state Department of Fish and Game to report a diversion of creek water into a tank at the San Ysidro Ranch. It is illegal to divert creek water without state permits. “We have to protect the resources so that they don’t suck the creeks dry,” said Natasha Lohmus, an environmental scientist with Fish and Game. “I can’t see how landscaping is more important than endangered species.” Seamus McManus, managing director at the San Ysidro Ranch, a luxury hotel and resort owned by Ty Warner of Montecito, said there had been a pipe in San Ysidro Creek on ranch property for at least 20 years. It was seldom used, he said, but the ranch did draw water from it in April to partially fill a tank. “We were unaware that it wasn’t allowed,” McManus said, adding that he had received a call from Lohmus.“When they told us we couldn’t do it, we put the water back in the creek. And we took the pipe away so that there’s no possibility of anybody ever doing that again.” McManus said the ranch was planning to dig a well this summer to provide water for 10 acres of landscaping. “We require a fair amount of water because we have extensive gardens that we have invested a lot of money in,” he said.“The cost of water from Montecito is prohibitive. The well will be expensive to do, but it will pay itself ■ back.” june 12, 2014

BY LY Z H O F F M A N n the same day that Sheriff Bill Brown said operating costs for the entire North County Jail are anticipated at around $17.3 million — lower than assumed, especially with the inclusion of a new recidivism-reducing wing — the Grand Jury issued a report questioning the optimism behind the county’s savings plan to cover those expenses. The plan — where money has been carved out of growing revenues bit by bit since 2011 — shows that there will be enough cash available when the jail opens in the second half of fiscal year 2017-2018 and in the years following. But, the Grand Jury warned, those extra revenues could prove fickle, as they depend on property, sales, and hotel taxes and on an improving overall economy. Before voters rejected Measure M on June 3, the maintenance initiative posed a significant threat to the plan, but other monetary issues remain, the Grand Jury said, in the form of natural disasters, the ongoing drought, any new changes to the jail, and the portion of those revenues already guaranteed to County Fire.“Should the execution of this plan not meet expectations, there is a significant probability that either a fee or tax assessment, or a reduction in services, will be necessary,” the jury stated, adding that it only places 50-70 percent faith in the plan’s success and even less faith in “both an improving economy and fiscal discipline” by supervisors. The report goes on to theorize that a likelier scenario involves smaller property-tax

increases than the plan assumes and salary freezes, budget freezes, and layoffs as a result. Increases to other taxes — parcel, sales, and utility users’— could help bridge the gap, the jury said, but would face an uphill battle against voters, who shot down proposals to hike sales taxes to pay for the jail’s construction both in 2000 and 2010. “If the board stays the course, the plan should work,” said Chief Deputy Laz Salinas, who oversees the Main Jail’s custody operations. Brown will go before the board in July, Salinas said, with the department’s “best estimate” on operating costs for the North County facility, factoring in the 376-bed main portion and the 228-bed recidivism-reducing wing, plus shifted staffing and services from the existing Calle Real campus. (Brown mentioned the $17.3 million figure to the board on Monday; he said in April that the jail’s operating costs would be $15.8 million, not including the recidivism-reducing wing.) Salinas added that current operating costs for the existing jail system hover around $44 million but should decrease when the North County branch opens. Auditor-Controller Bob Geis said the jury brought up some “good points” but also said the state grants Brown secured to pay for the jail’s construction — $80 million for the main portion, $39 million for the additional wing — are an “opportunity we don’t want to miss.” The supervisors will issue their response to the ■ report within the next few months.

No Country for Old Dogs

WHINING AND DINING: If bad actor, Republican congressional candidate, and alleged Tea Party dahling Christopher Mitchum woke

up Wednesday morning and thought it was Christmas, he is to be forgiven. That’s because Wednesday morning’s political headlines were hyperventilating over the surprise defeat of Republican House majority über boss Eric Cantor of Virginia. He got thrashed by David Brat, a Tea Party nobody and no-name college economics professor who came out of nowhere to knock off the second most powerful Republican in the country. Even sober-minded news reporters have described the upset as a tsunami, an earthquake, and a volcanic eruption all in one. And that was just the first paragraph. People will draw whatever lessons that best serve their purpose. If I were Mitchum — who appears to have cinched the Republican nomination for the 24th Congressional District — it would serve mine to believe I stood a chance against Lois Capps, the Democratic, nine-term, 900,000-pound political behemoth who is given to masquerading as a former school nurse. Sorry, Chris; you don’t. Brat worked his ass off. He believed fervently in something specific and talked about it incessantly: Immigrants are bad. Cantor, disconcertingly reptilian, did himself no favors by so assiduously ignoring the folks back home. Capps may not have a single signature bill to her name, but she works her ass off. And she red-eyes back to the district every single weekend she’s in D.C. It’s gotten to the point I can’t

get my blood drawn, go to the hardware store, or buy groceries at Ralphs without bumping into her. I may need a restraining order. As a Yellow Dog Democrat, naturally I am thrilled to see the Republican Party so utterly discombobulated. But as a citizen of the empire who relies on a functioning government, I actually like to see shite get done. The likelihood of that happening in a post-Brat political universe, however, hovers somewhere between null and nil. To the extent Brat’s victory constitutes a political tsunami, it ain’t one Chris Mitchum will be surfing anytime soon. Mitchum — who has run for public office twice before and lost both times — coasted on the name recognition he inherited from his father, the great sneering bad-ass actor Robert Mitchum. As a campaigner, Chris is rhetorically generic and endowed with all the drive and agility of a mattress soaked in rum. As a fundraiser, he underwhelms. Of the $119,000 Mitchum raised, he raised $27,000 from individual supporters — not enough to wage a credible race for Goleta City Council — and “loaned” himself the rest. The genuinely cool thing about Mitchum is all the boobs-and-body-count chop-socky movies in which he’s starred. With titles like Death Feud, The Executioner Part II, Lethal Cowboy, and Lethal Seduction, Mitchum’s oeuvre calls to mind the bad old days where a man could lay low an enemy with one single wellplaced karate chop — openhanded, of course — to the neck. Rather than wallow in such kitschy

glories with self-deprecating good humor, or perhaps hosting the First International Chris Mitchum Film Festival, Mitchum whines how he was forced to take such embarrassing roles because Hollywood’s liberal elite blackballed him for the politically incorrect sin of having appeared in Rio Lobo with John Wayne. That was in 1970, back when Wayne was still an unapologetically fascist icon. And I thought liberals were the only ones who obsessed on victimhood. If nothing else, Mitchum’s life experience shatters yet another stereotype. I now know that even privileged white guys with famous parents and lots of money can be victims of discrimination. In the interest of full disclosure, I should state up front I really wanted Santa Barbara City Councilmember Dale Francisco to be the sacrificial spear carrier who took on Capps. And I took advantage of the new open-primary rules to cross party lines — gasp! — and actually vote for the guy: Shock! Horror! Dale, at least, would have made it a campaign. My motive, I admit, was venal. For the past 20 years, I’ve been forced to watch Capps mop the floors with a bunch of kamikaze no-name opponents who somehow thought by jumping headfirst into a wood chipper, their political careers might be enhanced. On occasion, a couple of has-beens and wannabes were tossed in, as well: The result was the same. Booooring! It’s true Dale can be prickly, arrogant, and self-destructively dismissive. Who can forget the time he was called out for reading a book during a recent council meeting, flagrantly ignoring the room full of people

who showed up to testify. But Dale is also really smart, strategically creative, and has been enormously effective as a City Councilmember. It’s true I happen to disagree with the guy on just about everything. But of all the political palookas on the primary bill, he was clearly the most qualified to challenge Capps. And frankly, she could use one. Anyone would get a little flat and stale cake-walking into office 20 years in a row. Naturally, Capps preferred the sweet safety of boredom to dueling with Dale at high noon. To that end, she did everything within her power to ensure Mitchum got the most votes among the eight challengers running for her seat. I’m not sure I like it, but you can’t argue with the results. Privately — in off-the-record comments — Capps’s campaign aids propped Mitchum up, describing his oratorical prowess as positively “Reaganesque.” And in all her TV ads, Capps made a big point to mention Mitchum — and only Mitchum — by name, generously paying big bucks to show his face to would-be voters, describing him quakingly as her “Tea Party” opponent. If campaign election law had any teeth, Mitchum would be required to list Capps’s vote-for-Lois TV commercials as an in-kind contribution. And if this were a boxing match, Capps might be sanctioned for fight fixing. But it ain’t. In the meantime, merry Christmas to you, Chris Mitchum. And to twist a line from someone else’s movie, “No, Virginia, there’s no such thing as Santa Claus.” Just ask Eric Cantor. — Nick Welsh

Arne, having an ear for languages, used this skill as an inspiration for his later teaching career. At the age of , he joined a whaling expedition in Antarctica. This was followed by a mandatory year in the Norwegian Military, where he also played the flute in the marching band. Arne and his band were selected to play for the King and his family, which was an honor and a privilege. After his tour in the military, he immigrated to Canada, where his sister Inger Norris and brother Finn Lunde live. Both Inger and Finn are now in their nineties. In Canada, Arne also attended Radio College. The skills of a Radio and TV Technician came in handy when he later sought US citizenship. Arne heard of a job through a friend, at Sears, in Santa Barbara, California, and decided to head south. He would also have the opportunity to take classes at the local Community College to pursue his passion of foreign languages. It was during this time Arne met his wife Marcia, at the Santa Barbara Ski Club. Arne and Marcia were married in .

Arne received his Bachelors of Arts Degree and Master’s Degree at UCSB in German Languages and European History. After graduation, Arne and Marcia moved to Germany so that Arne could continue his studies in Germany Language at the University of Gottingen. Upon returning to the US, Arne received an offer to become a Professor at the West Valley College in Saratoga, CA, where he taught German, French and Norwegian. Arne served as Department Chair and also served on the West Valley College School Board. He won numerous Teaching Awards during his tenure. He was considered a favorite amongst his students, many of whom kept in touch with him for years. Arne loved the Community College and neighboring community so much he stayed there until he retired in . At this time he was encouraged to run for the Board of Trustees. Arne also started the Legacy Society for West Valley and Mission Valley Colleges that enabled individuals to make donation provisions in their estates/trust plans for Colleges. Arne was an active member of Nordmanns Forbundet, where he served as President for one year. He was also a member of Sons of Norway and was an active charity participant to many libraries. Arne loved classical music, was an avid world traveler, foodie, stamp and coin collector, Dodger fan, crossword puzzle master, cribbage player, Democrat, consummate gardener, and Scottish Country Dancer and loved Santa Barbara. He enjoyed going to the beach and visiting with his friends at Peet’s. Arne was a devoted and caring Father and is survived by his daughter Margaret, his wife, Marcia, and his friends and neighbors, who will miss him dearly. There will be private services. In lieu in flowers, please contribute to West Valley College Library Fund or the Classical Music Station KUSC in Arne’s memory.

More Dam Problems

T

he Santa Ynez River once held the largest steelhead trout run in Southern California, with tens of thousands of fish, making fishing an integral part of life along the river. Since Bradbury Dam was completed in 1953, the Bureau of Reclamation’s improper management, combined with the steelheads’ lack of access to upstream spawning habitats crucial to their survival, has caused their population to decrease by 99 percent. Numerous measures to help restore endangered steelhead have been suggested, including fish passage and eminently feasible water-conservation measures that can both save fish and maintain domestic water supplies. But the Bureau of Reclamation has continued to be unyielding — failing to pursue the simplest of solutions to protect the fish. The Bureau has failed the fish yet again — over the past year, at least 376 fish have died due to the agency’s failure to fix faulty pump equipment that waters Hilton Creek, a tributary of the river located directly below the dam. The repeated failure of the Bureau to properly maintain this equipment is indicative of its long-standing poor management of the river and dam. The Environmental Defense Center (EDC), on behalf of CalTrout, intends to sue the Bureau for its failures at Hilton Creek, which though a far cry from the upstream habitat blocked by the dam, at this point is an essential part of the steelheads’ life-support system. Hopefully the threatened lawsuit will force the Bureau of Reclamation to fulfill its responsibilities to protect these fish that are such an important part of the river’s history. — Nicole Di Camillo, Staff Attorney, EDC

Guns: Yo and No

H

ow to respond to a deranged person with a gun: Only a courageous good person with a gun can stop them. Guns are the gold standard for defense. Restricting mentally ill persons from purchasing guns is good, but restrictions and laws don’t end crime; they don’t guarantee criminal compliance. Criminals steal or get black-market guns. Worldwide, politicians recognize guns as good defensively, even ideal. Countries procure guns for their armies. To legislate the United States disarming militarily invites doom. That enables criminals to attack without risk or

am a child of the ’60s, a decade during which students changed the political face of the nation. I think that with 235,000 students in the UC system, hundreds of thousands more in the State University system, and millions more in the nation’s colleges and universities, a concerted and coordinated effort utilizing social media and the interscholastic connections that exist could change the gun culture in this country. This is especially true with the elections coming up. The power of the masses of students can force Congress to change and put an end to the influence of the NRA, which by economic clout keeps weapons with highcapacity magazines on the streets, allows access to guns for people who should not have them, and all of the rest.

Diablo Is Done

D

iablo Canyon Nuclear Power Plant (affected by six fault lines) is an unacceptable risk to the people of California and, as Fukushima has proved, to the entire planet. It is imperative that the California Legislature hold public hearings on health impacts of Diablo on residents of San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. World Business Academy’s “Diablo Canyon Radiation Health Report,” released March 3, 2014, found that S.L.O. changed from a relatively low-cancer county to a high-cancer one and that infant cancers, deaths, and low birth-weights rose significantly in S.L.O. and Santa Barbara counties after Diablo started up; and, after Rancho Seco nuclear plant closed, cancer rates declined and other health trends improved dramatically. No governmental agency has ever investigated Diablo’s impacts on nearby residents’ health — not the S.L.O. Health Department, not the State Department of Health, not PG&E, and not the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. I have no desire to motivate through fear, but we are gambling in a no win game with Diablo, and eventually — Maile Ellington, S.B. we will pay the price.

Rough Trade in Kona’s Reefs

UNDERWATER ATTACK: I’ve spent time on

Hawai‘i’s normally calm Kona Coast, whose serenity was shattered May 8 when a diver documenting reef damage and the controversial aquarium trade had her breathing regulator ripped off 50 feet underwater by a fish harvester. Rene Umberger, who survived the attack, protested, “This man needs to be arrested immediately for attempted murder.” Although the attack was captured on video, which went viral on the Internet, no charges have been filed by investigating officials as of this writing, to my knowledge. It’s also created an angry backlash on the Islands against those who would regulate or ban the trade that furnishes decorative fish for living-room-aquarium hobbyists. Umberger was diving as part of Sea Shepherd’s Operation Reef Defense, which claims an “estimated 350,000 reef animals are taken off the Kona Coast of Hawai‘i each year and sold to the aquarium trade” and that “more than 90 percent will be dead within one year.” But the aquarium trade is lucrative in Hawai‘i, and divers strenuously defend their work, which is legal if you have permits. The Sea Shepherd people are “nothing but terrorists trying to strip everyone’s rights away,” argued one Internet post. I haven’t been back to Kona since a savage 2011 tsunami wiped out the collection of fancy huts called Kona Village, a resort formerly

owned by Ty Warner. I await a calming of the waters and rebirth of Kona Village. TAME JUDGES? A lively but less physical

debate is also stirring U.S. legal circles: Are federal judges giving rich tax cheats like Ty Warner an easy break? Prosecutors appealing the Beanie Baby mogul’s sentence have filed a brief claiming that when a Chicago judge gave Warner probation, it was an unreasonable, unwarranted “getout-of-jail” card based largely on his charitable donations. Although the billionaire “hid more than $100 million in secret Swiss bank accounts, refused to report at least $24 million of income to the IRS, and evaded at least $5.5 million in taxes” through “evasive conduct,” prosecutors wrote in their appeal, he escaped the jail penalty other tax evaders had been hit with. Judging from a transcript of the January 14 hearing, Federal Judge Charles P. Kocoras was plainly sympathetic with the part-time Santa Barbaran, though prosecutors argue that his charity only amounted to a fraction of his wealth. The appeal probably won’t be heard by the Midwest’s th District Court of Appeals until after summer. The feds may have a hard time reversing the judge’s probation ruling for Warner. Even though federal sentencing guidelines call for a jail term of 46-57 months, Judge Kocoras had great leeway, due to the 2005 U.S.

Supreme Court Booker case. Not that Warner’s getting off scot-free: For one thing, he was assessed a $53 million penalty, a heavy hit compared with his $5.5 million “profit” from a decade of tax-dodging. This crime didn’t pay. The $5.5 million is peanuts for a man worth $1.7 billion. Kocoras pointed out that Warner, 69, donated nearly $140 million in cash and toys during his lifetime and had submitted 70 gushing letters on his behalf, 29 from current and past employees.

BLUE & GREEN OUTDOOR ADVENTURE GUIDE

T

he Santa Barbara Independent ’s dedicated crew of outdoor-minded editors and writers is too busy chasing down the next adventure to keep track of how many Blue & Green issues there have been over the years. But we’ve certainly eclipsed the 15-year mark and are approaching 20 with the same original goal in mind: to tell invigorating stories of the great outdoors, in hopes of spurring you readers into doing the same. So read on, and then go outside.

KAYAK

When in Doubt, Paddle South

I

n the black of night, I swore I saw a flicker of light where the evening sky meets the dark sea. I was on a kayak in the middle of the open ocean, somewhere between Anacapa and Santa Barbara Island, and uneven wind waves caused the horizon to undulate mysteriously.“Are my eyes playing tricks on me,” I wondered, subduing my worst fears as I’d been doing all day,“or are we finally going the right way?” All we could do was keep paddling into the darkness, hoping to soon touch down on the lonely, craggy isle of Santa Barbara, the smallest of California’s Channel Islands.

Putting In

The idea was hatched the previous summer by Tony Chapman, an accomplished 75-year-old kayaker who’s competed in numerous races and guided trips at Channel Islands National Park for nearly 30 years. So before dawn on that fateful October morning, Chapman and I put in under the bright beam of a full autumn moon, no headlamp needed at Santa Cruz Island’s shimmering Scorpion Anchorage. We estimated that it would take about 12 hours to paddle the 44 miles to Santa Barbara Island and were pleased when the moderate, down-coast current quickly propelled us beyond the southeast end of Santa Cruz. Before we knew it, we were enjoying the glow of the rising sun behind West Anacapa Island and the Santa Monica Mountains, and the full moon setting beyond Montanon Ridge on Santa Cruz.

As we left those islands in our wake, a small pod of Risso’s dolphins spouted eastward, the only turbulence on the calm, glassy waters that stretched as far as we could see. Whether that tranquility would last played on my mind with each passing hour. Seven hours in, I could still see Santa Cruz’s Yellow Banks over my right shoulder and was worried that we may have miscalculated our compass heading. We were inside the U.S. Navy’s Pacific Missile Test Range; maneuvers had ended at 8 a.m., but we could still see a vessel to the west. Even closer was a tugboat, whose captain confirmed my fears: We were paddling in the wrong direction, he explained, adding ominously,“You have 26 miles to go.”

Towing Tony

My heart sank. It was already 1:30 p.m., so we’d be paddling in the dark even if we picked up the pace, but Chapman seemed to be slowing down instead. Our dream of arriving by dinnertime was now turning into a nightmare. So at 5 p.m., I very and by reluctantly offered to give the kayak legend a tow. To my surprise, he quickly obliged, perhaps realizing that, with nightfall coming, simply being closer to each other would be a good strategy for staying alive. With some tailwind kicking up, we began moving at a better clip, but we couldn’t see the mainland anymore. At 6

ISLE AIMING: This is what Santa Barbara Island looks like from the landing dock, if you ever get there.

p.m., I suggested we get into our warm gear, so we wrestled into our wetsuits, spray jackets, and beanies. Chapman wore his headlamp to track our compass heading, and we quickly ate and drank and pressed on. Visions of missing Santa Barbara Island were still weighing heavy on my tired shoulders. The alternative was paddling due east to the mainland, which would make for a trip of at least 80 miles. I wasn’t looking forward to that, nor did I want to paddle in the fog through the shipping lanes. My spirits quickly rose when the moon appeared in the eastern sky, and Chapman took solace with a southerly star burning bright. “If you follow that bright star,” he hollered as the seas grew choppy,“it’s in line with our heading.” As my confidence grew, so did the curiosity of seabirds about the two blue kayaks rocking in the deep cobalt seas. Migratory black-vented and sooty shearwaters flew directly at us, and then banked away at the last second. On several occasions, solitary ashy storm petrels swooped off my bow and then vanished in the unsettling seas. We knew that the park rangers would start worrying about us after 6 p.m., which is when we expected to land, and by 8 p.m., we heard them discussing our whereabouts. Sensing some mild anxiety in their transmissions, Chapman tried several times to contact them, but we weren’t close enough to the island. At 8:30 p.m., as my mind rapidly fended off the what-ifs, I put a cheery spin on paddling in the dark, noting with irony that the visibility was better than at daytime when all I could see was haze. I kept placing trust in the moon and southern star, but would then get discouraged when I still couldn’t see anything in the distance that resembled the triangular shape of Santa Barbara Island.

When Chapman’s kayak suddenly went slack behind me, I thought the line had broken, but it just untied. As we dealt with that, though, he dropped his paddle into the dark, capping seas, its black shaft and red blades instantly disappearing. As the latest wave of devastation began to overtake me, I turned my head to see what looked to be Sutil Island, the smaller isle located about one-eighth of a mile off Santa Barbara Island. I’d been starting to see flashes on the horizon, which I hoped were from the light that once was on Santa Barbara Island, but I didn’t

know if it was operational anymore.“Are you seeing Sutil Island?” I yelled through the wind to Chapman, but he couldn’t tell either, for most of Santa Barbara Island was cloaked in fog. As we peered into the darkness, I finally realized that I was seeing the automated light flashing atop Arch Point. It was a glorious sight: shafts of moonlight striking down on the wave-battered isle, swept in a swirl of dense, dewy overcast, and the beacon going off on the isle’s north end. We went from complete despair to utter elation in a matter of seconds. We figured we were still seven miles out, but at least we had points continued on p. 33 >>> FRANK HUDSON

Hiking the Topatopas WHAT: Three-day, nine-mile backpack or

15-mile day hike along the Red Reef Trail. DIFFICULTY: Moderate to strenuous ascent of more than 2,200 feet. MAP: Tom Harrison Maps Sespe Wilderness. DIRECTIONS:  South to Highway  to Ojai, then Highway  toward Upper Ojai Valley and left on Sisar Canyon Road. THE EXPERIENCE: The Los Padres National Forest’s enchanting Red Reef Trail outside of nearby Ojai offers a quick, challenging nature foray up Sisar Canyon, topping out at Nordhoff Ridge Road, where stunning vistas of the grandiose, forbidding, and pink sandstone bluffs known as the Topatopas ensue. It was a hot spring weekend when I checked out this adventure, with a first day of climbing about 2,000 feet on the 4.5-mile backpack to White Ledge Camp, which has three iron fire rings and plenty of shade. (Be sure to obtain a fire permit from the Forest Service and filter your water.) The first three miles are along a dirt road but reward with great views. The trail’s bounty of beauty included cool white

alders, profuse and gnarly chaparral, fragrant bay laurels, and a few towering big leaf maples down in the creek. The arid trail was graced by the dark blue blossoms of yerba buena, which the Chumash used to make a medicinal stomach tea. On day two, I took an exhilarating day hike from White Ledge, which sits at 3,700 feet, along the rest of the Red Reef Trail, which reaches its highest point another three miles up. The steep mountainous landscapes to the east and above me displayed the well-known Topatopa’s precipitous cliffs, visible from the streets of Ojai and far beyond. On the third and final day, I ambled back down the Red Reef to the closed portion of Sisar Canyon Road, where I found my beat-up, 15-year-old Ford Ranger, whose four-wheel drive had been most handy on the final mile before the gate. Hiking below the high cliffs of the Topatopas is a great, quick, and relatively easy escape from the modern world, or what economist Thomas Piketty I believe correctly calls the “Second American Gilded Age.” —DAN McCASLIN

vivor — and with one of those death matches coming against melanoma — I take my sun protection very seriously. Add to this the fact that I find it hard to go more than 24 hours without jumping into a body of water of some kind, and I become a mainstream sunblock company’s worst nightmare: someone who demands the highest performance under extreme weather conditions without putting my long-term health at risk by exposing my skin to nasty chemicals. Amazingly, right here in Santa Barbara, a new all-natural sunblock has been born. I first stumbled upon Avasol products at this year’s Earth Day festivities and doubt I will ever use a different sunblock again. The stuff is gangbusters! Though not the most affordable of options, Avasol is more than worth the money. It delivers full-spectrum and truly water-resistant sun protection (I find I need to reapply every 90 minutes or so if I am surfing) via 100 percent bio-based ingredients. As an added bonus, the container itself is biodegradable, and the block smells so good I am fairly certain small children will try to eat it. You can find Avasol at surf shops throughout the  or at avasol.com.

That said, if you are a fan of unhinged beach-time revelry for the whole family, then a trip to Costco should be in your future. The emporium of oversized packaging is also home to the Wavestorm, a super affordable soft-top surfboard that is a guaranteed fun maker for surf sliders of all skill levels. It weighs about 10 pounds and is indestructible, soft and squishy to the touch like a Boogie board, and several hundred dollars less than similarly sized foam-and-fiberglass wave-riding vehicles. The Wavestorm is perfect for that land-loving visitor or grom who is begging you to learn how to surf, or for yourself when the waves are small and crappy but the weather is hot and the ocean is calling. The 8-foot fun-shapes also do great work as over-sand transporting devices for heavy coolers, impromptu wind breaks, and even first-class sleeping pads. Costco is located at  Marketplace Drive, Goleta. Call 685-3199. OUTDOOR INSPIRATION FOR YOUR COFFEE TABLE: Young,

handsome, super talented, and ridiculously welltraveled photographer Chris Burkard has been living the dream for a decade and counting. Currently raising a family on the Central Coast, Burkard, who is a senior staff photographer at Surfer magazine, prefers to travel to places several hours if not days beyond the beaten path, his camera and eye for the sublime always in tow. The highlights of this addiction are on full display in his new book, Distant Shores, a large-format, nearly all-photo affair from Santa Barbara’s AMMO Books. Broken into 12 sections, each named for a different location like India or Iceland or Russia, Distant Shores delivers a stripped-down yet high-octane dose of ocular inspiration with page after page of face-melting nature photography. And while surfing was more often than not the motivation for Burkard’s travel, the Sport of Kings shares the stage in Distant Shores with the beauty of Mother Nature and the ridiculous demonstration delivered day in and day out when the ocean and sunlight interact. This book takes you there while simultaneously motivating you to go there yourself. Distant Shores is available in area bookstores, at chrisburkard.com, and at ammobooks.com. —ETHAN STEWART

Pure Times on Bare Rock

M

y hands shaking, my arms and stomach burning, and my right knee jammed way too hard into a right-angle protruding from an otherwise user-friendly slab of sandstone, a flash of unspecific pain tore up and into my brain. As I eyed a blind ledge just an inch or two beyond my reach, it dawned on me that I was well past my comfort zone, feeling a fair bit of hurt from virtually every limb, and, perhaps most impressively, I was absolutely blissed out about the whole deal. An optimistic shout came from several stories below, “Yeah, buddy, that’s it right there! Go for it!” And so it goes when rock climbing in the wild, as pure a pursuit as you will find and one that forces you deep into the embrace of moving mediation while also putting your physical self into treacherous places and spaces. I am as new to climbing as you can be, but, after spending half of a beautiful May day exploring the walls of Santa Barbara’s front country with Santa Barbara Rock Gym’s programming director, Chris Hamman, I am jazzed about furthering my education on the many climbing walls and routes that are peppered throughout the Los Padres National Forest. While so many stoke-stirring outdoor activities require the full and proper cooperation of Mother Nature (think surfing, skiing, snowboarding, hang gliding, rafting, kayaking, etc.), the major action required to set up a fun day of climbing happened centuries ago when our area geography took shape. “It’s pretty hard to have a bad day out here,” mused Hamman after my first successful ascent of a route in the Montecito foothills called the Orangahang, the morning’s thick marine layer clearing just as I reached the top of the 80-foot climb.

My muscles pulsed with blood as I shook out my chalkcovered hands and grinned a stupid grin in agreement, my core swelling with a deep — and surprising — sense of accomplishment. I’ve been a jaded surfer and powder hunter for a couple of decades now, but this, this tickled me in a place long since dormant.  Lucky for climbers of all skill levels, the Santa Barbara Rock Gym, which stepped into a shockingly longstanding void around these parts when they opened their downtown gym a couple of years ago, has recently become the first and only outfit licensed to run climbing tours into the Los Padres National Forest. Since May, they have been leading trips to popular haunts like Lizard’s Mouth and the Playground. And, in a karmic nod as part of their agreement with forest management, they are also going to be spearheading biannual cleanup outings at several popular climbing spots. According to Hamman, the Los Padres tours are just the beginning of their outside offerings. “It takes a while with all the required training and certifications and assorted red tape, but our goal is to eventually be able to take groups into the Southern Sierras and places like Mount Whitney,” he explained. As for me and my aforementioned moment of agony that spiked some 60 feet above the earth? Well, I made it thanks to coaching from Hamman and one big lunge of faith with my right arm. The world was glowing as I reached the top of that modest canyon climb, the moment popping pregnant with the type of endorphincolored stuff that makes all the bullshit of the world completely melt away. —ES

CHUCK GRAHAM

DRY-LAND DREAMS: Reaching dry land after far too many hours of paddling the open ocean rewarded the author with this view of Santa Barbara Island.

PADDLE SOUTH CONT'D of reference. First came Webster Point, and then we paddled past the guano-covered Shag Rock. Without a paddle, Chapman had no way of controlling his kayak, so he sat back and enjoyed an unstable ride while I wrestled with the choppy seas, thick kelp, and northern currents. It took me another two-and-a-half hours to reach the Landing Cove, and as we paddled beneath the massive archway of Arch Point, I yelled as loud as I could,“Rounding third!” Gratefully, a team of researchers staying on the island were waiting for us as we came alongside the dock’s tall ladder, and they helped hoist our kayaks and gear up onto the top deck. Needless to say, we were both a little stiff and fatigued, but standing on solid ground was something to behold, even though it felt as if the dock was rocking and rolling beneath our feet. And instead of having to pitch tents at midnight, we got to crash inside the ranger’s quarters. Our paddling trip had begun in the dark, guided by a full moon, and that’s exactly how it ended — nearly 18 hours later, on an ominous speck of an island, where two weary kayakers were grateful it was there.

2013 paddle out

Paddling for a Cause Saturday, June 14, will be a day dedicated to honoring a foundation that has helped an area girl deal with a serious disease. Born with Rett syndrome, a neurological developmental disorder, 8-year-old Sorel is fully cognitive but completely immobile. As soon as she was diagnosed with Rett syndrome at 18 months, the International Rett Syndrome Foundation contacted Sorel’s parents and provided them with advice as well as resources and led them to multiple therapists to help their child. Chris Kolendrianos, Sorel’s father, said that the foundation “was amazing” and that it allowed his wife and him to “gain a support system with a lot of other really great families dealing with the same thing.” For the third year in a row, Kolendrianos is raising funds for the foundation in order to further the research being done for Rett syndrome. The nine-mile ocean paddle in honor of Sorel begins at the north end of Goleta Beach and ends at Leadbetter Beach. “The paddle is not at all a race but just for fun,” said Kolendrianos. There will also be a raffle to benefit the International Rett Syndrome Foundation, and tickets can be purchased at the beach following the paddle. For more information, contact Chris Kolendrianos at 403-4769 or ckgraphics@cox.net. — Mckinley Krongaus

Telson and her husband started the nonprofit organization 17 years ago and have been taking in and caring for stray and abandoned felines ever since. They also work to educate the public about the importance of spaying and neutering pets. “As of 15 minutes ago, we have adopted out 2,121 cats to new homes,” she added. right: “I’m just getting in a little fishing before I have to go to work,” said Brian Smalarz while casting out at East Beach.

Botanic Garden Partners with UCSB Library

Made possible by a $250,000 donation from area philanthropist Sara Miller McCune, the UC Santa Barbara Library will soon take in the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden’s rare-book collection. Of the more than 750 books, some of the tomes were published as early as the 17th century — the oldest dating back to 1682. Other treasures in the collection include several early-edition books signed by the author, such as John Muir’s The Yosemite. The acquisition will be housed in the library’s new Special Collections facility, which is currently under construction. The Botanic Garden’s environmentally focused books will be available for viewing by the beginning of 2016. — MK

Grants

Love Thy Neighborhood

The City of Santa Barbara’s Parks and Recreation Department recently introduced the new Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP). The program will provide small grants to area organizations for improvement projects. The goal of the project is to encourage community members to take their neighborhoods’ well-being into their own hands through grassroots organizing. The grants will range from $1,000-$5,000 and will go toward projects such as helping elderly neighbors with yard work, adopt-a-park efforts, and murals. The proposed projects must be in one of the following downtown neighborhoods in Santa Barbara: Eastside, Westside, Lower Eastside, Lower Westside, Laguna, or West Downtown. Applications for grants are due by June 16 and are available on the city’s website. For more information, contact Neighborhood and Outreach Services at 897-2560. — MK

My Life

New Memoir by Field of Dreams Actor

I

was 19 years old, fresh off the airplane and so haole I didn’t even know I was haole standing in line for the shuttle to the employee parking lot of the Maui Marriott in Kaanapali, Maui. Tipo, a large and intimidating Hawaiian-Samoan cook, also waiting in line, approached me and asked, “Brah, you like paddle with Hawaiian Canoe Club tomorrow?” He had the classic pidgin intonations and a broad infectious smile on his face. “No, thank you, I’m too skinny …” was my response to the invitation; I didn’t think I had what it took to be part of a canoe paddling team. Nowadays, paddling in seat number one for the Santa Barbara Outrigger Canoe Club, I often think of Tipo and the days I missed out on the waters off Maui. But then, I look around at our beautiful coast and decide that paddling these parts isn’t too bad either. And then there is the sport itself — physically tough, emotionally exhilarating, and mentally challenging no matter where you choose to participate. Whatever body of water you happen to find yourself in, “catching” a blade-full of water at exactly the same time as the other five people in your canoe, ripping your paddle 14 inches through the surface with proper rotation, and then exiting with the exact precision of synchronized swimmers, only to do it over and over again (70 times a minute to be exact) requires concentration like little else I have known. The reward comes when you all get it right; the gift of glide over Mother Earth’s waters is as good as it gets. Flat and buttery water to headwind chop or downhill runs, the many moods of the ocean color each paddling experience differently. Having paddled a oneman outrigger for a couple of years and surfing for four decades and counting, I’m no stranger to moving yourself across the surface of the sea. Yet paddling in a six-person canoe offers a camaraderie I had never before experienced on the ocean. I’ve achieved many solo racing scores in endurance events — in running, cycling, and even prone paddling — and had ample amounts of adventure combined with a sense of achievement. However, competing as a team upon the salty waters of the Pacific, the thrill and success is amplified. I am blessed to be part of the ohana at the Santa Barbara Outrigger Canoe Club and want to share my ocean gliding with others. As Tipo tried to show me those many years ago, all it takes is a willingness to share in the — Paul Shields gift.

L

ove him, hate him, idolize him, or never met him — chances are good you’ve got strong feelings about your father. Yet, for men in particular, expressing those feelings directly can be awkward, even impossible. That was the case for Dwier Brown. The youngest of three children, raised in rural Ohio by loving if stoic Midwesterners, Brown was in his teens when he discovered his passion for acting. He made his way to Hollywood, where in 1988 he landed a gig that would change his life: playing Kevin Costner’s father in a baseball movie with the working title Shoeless Joe. Renamed Field of Dreams before its 1989 release, the film quickly became a father/son classic: the story of a rookie farmer who follows the promptings of a mysterious voice and is granted one last chance to make things right with his dad. In his readable, warmly humorous new memoir, If You Build It ...: A Book About Fathers, Fate and Field of Dreams, Brown reflects on the way a relatively small role transformed him. He writes of his days on the set: a farmhouse and cornfield in Dyersville, Iowa. Interspersed between anecdotes about working alongside Costner and James Earl Jones are vivid scenes drawn from Brown’s earlier life and reflections on his relationship with his father: a loyal, hardworking family man who found it hard to show affection openly. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the film, and Ojai-based Brown is currently touring the country in a Winnebago, visiting bookstores and minor-league ball games to promote his book. On Father’s Day, he’ll meet up with Costner and other members of the cast in Dyersville, where the baseball pitch from Field of Dreams has been maintained. In a recent interview, Brown spoke about landing the role at a pivotal time in his life. “I found out that I had gotten the part, and I was getting ready to visit my family in Ohio before heading to the film set,” he recounted. “Then I got word that my dad was in the hospital. I just had this feeling that I couldn’t wait a week, so I changed my plane ticket. When I got there, I saw my dad was sicker than anyone had let me know.”

Dwier Brown

His father died that night, and two weeks later, a dazed Brown found himself on the set, wandering cornfields not unlike those of his childhood. “At first, I was happy to have the diversion,” he recalled. “But when we got around to shooting the final scene, I was surprised to find myself blocked emotionally.” In order to pull off the powerful exchange with Costner, Brown had to access his feelings about his own father. Whether despite or because of his fresh grief, the scene is among the most poignant in popular film — one that sticks with viewers long after the credits have rolled. In fact, in the 25 years since the film’s release, complete strangers have approached Brown regularly, eager to talk about not just the film but also their relationships with their own fathers. He has peppered his memoir with monologues based on these “confessions,” which he says he is honored to hear. “There are very few places to process our contradictory feelings about our fathers,” Brown noted. “Sports are one place where fathers try to communicate with their sons — to teach them how hard work pays off, how to be responsible to a team, a family. The movie simplifies that relationship and creates the perfect reconciliation between father and son.” Maybe more than any other sport, he added, baseball’s rhythms and pacing allow for all kinds of unspoken communication, much as relationships between fathers and sons often do. As he writes in the final chapter of his book, even a simple game of catch can convey a profound message: “Throwing the ball is like saying ‘I give to you’ and catching it is like saying ‘I get from you,’ he writes. “‘I give to you, I get from you,’ over and over again.”

GETTING TO KNOW

DIZZY WRIGHT Las Vegas Rapper Heads to Velvet Jones

L

as Vegas’ Dizzy Wright is busy, and not just because he’s moving. The 23-year-old Wright, who first began rapping professionally in his early teens, released a new song,“Spark Up the Flame,” the morning of our conversation. A day later, record label Funk Volume would share a trio of collaborative tracks between Wright and Brooklyn’s Bishop Nehru (the noted protégé of hip-hop sensei MF Doom). And we haven’t even mentioned the national tour yet — Wright’s first with a live drummer, which kicks off in Fresno on June 11 (and hits Santa Barbara on June 13). It’s all typical of a rapper’s workflow in the 21st century, but in a world of fast fame, Wright’s trajectory seems like a natural one. In spite of his growing fan base, Wright’s signature candidness and positivity remain very much in tact, as evidenced by the release of “Red Balloons,” the rapper’s touching musical response to the tragic death of 3-year-old Ryan Salada Saldana and the kidnapping of 300 girls in Nigeria. In anticipation of this Friday’s show at Velvet Jones, we caught up with Dizzy to talk about fatherhood, the NBA Finals, and industry hype. For show tickets and info, call 965-8676 or visit dizzy.nightout.com. What about the upcoming tour are you excited about? Are you performing a lot of new stuff? We’re doing a lot of stuff that no one has seen yet, but actually

on this [new] tour, I have a drummer coming out with me. We’re doing “Spark Up the Flame” and some other stuff we haven’t normally done, and we’re really just gonna try to rock out. Your verses on “Red Balloons” were clearly very personal. Do you think you could have released a song like that before you became a father? I mean, that was just a perspective on what was going on. I couldn’t have written that song without being inspired by the situation, and by being a father. Has being a father influenced your writing more than touring? Which do you think has impacted your work more profoundly? Everything. Being a father isn’t just being a father; it’s all that comes with being a father. It’s the people you run into at the daycare, or the other fathers that you meet, and then you’re having father conversations … What kind of “father conversations”? I mean, when you’re a daddy, and you have kids, you always just start talking about your kids …

ROUND ‘N’ ROUND: Rapper (and Clippers fan) Dizzy Wright is on the move. He plays Velvet Jones on Friday, June 13.

Is there a particular team you like? Or do you just like the league as a whole?? I love following the whole NBA, man, but I really love watching the Clippers. I love watching Chris Paul. Them motherfuckers throw alley-oops to each other, and they’re just exciting to me. You were named one of XXL’s Freshman of the Year last year. Do you feel like it impacted your career? I think it helped me, but I think it mostly helped me in the industry. A lot of fans stray away from that type of stuff, or just pay attention to it for a moment because of the hype. But the industry is always paying attention. It’s always good to know those people, so I think — Jake Blair it helped me out a lot.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre frontman has been living an artist’s existence in Berlin for some years now, and he continues to release albums on his own label, as well as post his intriguing demos online. For Revelation, the band’s 14th full-length, Newcombe and Co. culled from the best of the last two years’ batch of songs. As usual, Newcombe brings a variety of influences and textures together fluidly. Old-school fans will rejoice at the great psychedelic tracks like “Unknown” and “Days, Weeks and Moths,” which owe something to Robyn Hitchcock and John Lennon. Also to be found on Revelation are the catchy “Food for Clouds,” the ambient, Popol Vuh–like “Second Sighting,” and the electronica-infused “Memorymix.” In our opinion, it’s

LET THE SOULSHINE IN Iff ever eve verr th ther there eree was er was a music musi sic ic event even ev entt made made for for Santa Santa Barbara, Soulshine. The nationally it would look a whole lot like Soulshine touring mini-fest is boasting live sets from Michael Franti & Spearhead, SOJA, Brett Dennen, Trevor Hall, and Sonna Rele, as well as appearances by some of the biggest names in yoga, including Ryan Leier, Baron Baptiste, and Seane Corn. There will be yoga classes. And sustainable living workshops. And acoustic jam sessions. And more good vibrations than you can shake a stick at. The whole thing rolls into town for an afternoon and evening at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Thursday, June 19, and if you’re of the yogi persuasion, this is sure to be the ticket of the season. But even those of the non-mat-toting kind can find something to love here. For starters, Soulshine is offering one of the more diverse (and massively stacked) musical lineups this season. Franti is the kind of musician who wears his positive message on his sleeve, and his upbeat brand of pop rock matches his lyrics note for note. Meanwhile, SOJA’s groove-filled tunes succeed in bridging the worlds of American folk and Jamaican roots reggae. Both Dennen and Hall operate in singer/songwriter mode, but where Hall veers toward a grizzled voiced take on acoustic hip-hop, Dennen heads in the opposite direction, pairing a wavering folksy speak-sing with strong pop sensibilities. And as the lone lady sharing the stage, Rele promises to inject the night with some seriously sultry vocals. The Santa Barbara installment of the Soulshine tour kicks off at 6 p.m. at the S.B. Bowl and is open to all ages. Call 962-7411 or visit sbbowl.com. — Aly Comingore

NINE LIVES: Oxnard’s CATWALK is the brainchild of Nic Hessler, who’ll bring his surfy garage pop to the Good? Bad?! Rad! festival next month. FRINGE BENEFITS: With the Santa Barbara Bowl season finally starting to heat up, and Summer Solstice right around the corner, it seems that concert season has officially begun on the South Coast. And while the coming months may offer some big gets — and even bigger crowds — especially in the live music world, I can’t help but set my eye on some of the fringier stuff coming down the pike. If you’ve been waiting around patiently for a festival worth attending, I’ve got good news to report. Next month, Reckless Boys are throwing a musical party that you’re not going to want to miss, featuring some of SoCal’s brightest up-and-coming acts. They’re calling it Good? Bad?! Rad!, and it’s taking place on Saturday, July 26, at Malibu Plains Club in Oxnard. Even better, it’s flaunting a bill that’s rife with  talent, including headliners CATWALK, Watercolor Paintings, and Dante Elephante. Also sharing space on the marquee are L.A.’s Adult Books, Captions, The Flytraps, Suburban Moms, and The Shrills, among many, many others. The whole thing kicks off at 2 p.m. and is open to all ages. For the full lineup, visit good-bad-rad.tumblr.com. Closer to home (by both date and place standards), on Wednesday, June 25, the Biko Co-op Garage welcomes Desert Center, a low and droney instrumental duo whom I first watched work their magic in a packed downtown living room late last year. Then, the pair was going by Cairo, and though the name has changed, the jams are staying the original course. Part jazz fusion, part ambient post-rock, Desert Center’s sound is a subtly driving experiment in blending builds and grooves. The bass lines are the backbone, and they skulk around the drum fills with a brooding sort of anxiety. Fans of Godspeed You! Black Emperor will not be disappointed. The all-ages show starts at 7:30 p.m. Visit SB DIY on Facebook for info. And on Tuesday, July 1, the Biko delivers yet again with an appearance by Rhode Island brass band What Cheer? Brigade, whose catalog of players looks too large for a tour bus — never mind the co-op’s tiny venue space. Elbow room aside, this one promises big fun. The Brigade’s high-spirited take on marching-band cacophony is rooted in the South, but its flavor is equal parts New England quirk and New Orleans pomp and circumstance. The revelry starts at 7:30 p.m. with openers The Mothras. Visit sbdiy.org for info. DANCE YOURSELF CLEAN: Also making the summer must-do list is We the Beat’s next disco-imbued installment, which takes over SOhO Restaurant & Music Club on Wednesday, July 2, with headliners The Knocks. The electronic duo of Ben “B-Roc” Ruttner and James “JPatt” Patterson recently released the latest in a long line of solid EPs, Comfortable, which injects the pair’s groovy calling-card sound with the spirit of Daft Punk and sexuality of Prince. Original material aside, the pair has also amassed a remix list in recent years that’s too long and star-studded to summarize. (Think Haim, Foster the People, Ellie Goulding, and Passion Pit, for starters.) If you’re looking for a jumping-off point, seek out the fairly new “Savior” (featuring Ra Ra Riot’s Wes Miles on lead vocals). It’s a perfect entry into The Knocks’ particular brand of ’80s worship. For those craving a big, bold night on the dance floor, get your tickets early — this one is sure to sell out long before doors open. Visit theknocks.nightout .com for tickets and info.

KIP FULBECK

Reviewed by Charles Donelan o r t h is photographic exhibition documenting large Japanese-style tattoos, UCSB professor of art Kip Fulbeck teamed up with Takahiro “Horitaka” Kitamura, a highly regarded tattoo artist based in San Jose. The heavily inked pair traveled across two continents, assembling the models and arranging the photo shoots that would create this show, which can be seen at the Japanese American National Museum until September 14. Fulbeck is also responsible for the dramatic layout of the exhibition, which includes several arrangements of larger-than-life, doublesided prints that depict INK DRAGON: This powerful front and rear views of creature dominates this hikae chest these extravagant, incredpanel with 3/4 -length sleeves by Yebis. ibly detailed designs. The seven tattoo artists who have created the work on view were carefully chosen to demonstrate the current vitality and cross-cultural reach of a specifically Japanese style of tattoo art that can be traced back to the 17th century and the Edo period. Hundreds of years before Ed Hardy’s tigers turned up on 21st-century T-shirts, the popular and dynamic style of art that he learned to imitate in Japanese tattoo parlors came into existence among Japanese fans of a Chinese adventure story called The Water Margin. Known in Japan as Suikoden, the outlaw heroes of The Water Margin were always heavily tattooed, their bodies inscribed with flowing images of wild animals, dragons, and monsters. When the tattooed Suikoden heroes started appearing in popular woodblock prints, certain tight-knit groups of Japanese men seized on them to represent their separation from mainstream society. The first two groups to embrace tattooing in Japan were thus the 17th-century street warriors known as otokodate and the community of firefighters known as hikeshi. In subsequent centuries, Japanese tattooing has become a revered tradition among its fans and acquired an unsavory association with the yakuza, or Japanese mafia, among many others. The fact that this show is taking place at the Japanese American National Museum represents a breakthrough of sorts, as such formal institutions as museums have rarely recognized the art of tattooing. Instead, tattoo artists and their clients have created their own circuit of conventions and underground gatherings within which they explore and savor the work. For the artists in this show — Junii, Yokohama Horiken, Shige, Horitomo, Miyazo, Horitaka, and Chris Horishiki Brand — the Japanese tradition remains central, but the aesthetic demands of the present have come to modify and alter its expression in a variety of ways. One striking example of the ongoing transformation of the Japanese tattoo tradition is its adoption by Mexican Americans living in Los Angeles. In an essay for the exhibition catalogue, Halpin describes her work for an anonymous L.A. client who came to her for a Japanese-style body suit that would reflect his Mexican heritage. Through researching Aztec and Mayan mythology, the artist was able to discover that such figures as Quetzalcoatl, a feathered serpent god, and Tezcatlipoca, a jaguar/turkey god, were well suited to her techniques. While the final result could hardly be said to represent Japanese culture, the design sensibility, as well as the painstaking approach the artist took to convey her client’s cultural history through his tattoos, hews remarkably close to the roots of the irezumi aesthetic. As Horiyuki puts it, the paradigm of the Japanese tattoo “is no longer bound by locale and the cultural identity of its purveyors and collectors, yet it is still a recognizable entity.” Congratulations to Fulbeck and to Horitaka for allowing outsiders a glimpse of this vibrant international ■ subculture. june 12, 2014

s anyone who saw the recent production of Time Stands Still at the Center Stage Theater knows, Donald Margulies is one of our finest contemporary playwrights. But his 1996 drama Collected Stories, currently being revived at Ventura’s Rubicon Theatre, isn’t holding up all that well. In spite of Jim O’Neil’s well-acted and well-paced production, the play seems both contrived and dated. And its central debate about privacy versus artistic license — which never had much resonance outside of the rarified world of writers — now seems rather archaic. The two-character drama concerns the relationship between celebrated short-story writer Ruth Steiner (Susan Clark) and Lisa Morrison, a student of hers who becomes her assistant and, eventually, her close friend. A bit like a literary All About Eve, the play depicts Lisa’s breakthrough as a writer and its effects on an increasingly needy Ruth. Their complicated relationship ultimately explodes when, in need of material for a novel, Lisa makes use of stories from the older woman’s past. Somewhat disingenuously, she calls her appropriation an homage to her mentor. Ruth sees it as more of a betrayal. Both actresses do excellent work; we viscerally feel the ways the characters change and the ways they stay the same. But they can’t hide the central hole in the writing: It feels implausible that Ruth would open up in such a way, especially to a hungry, young colleague. What’s more, two decades on, her argument that some events and personalities are off-limits is essentially irrelevant. In an era of Facebook likes and NSA surveillance, privacy is, sadly, an outmoded concept; artists routinely appropriate real-life stories and shape them into works of art, or at least entertainment. So the play, which runs through June 22, comes across as a relic of an earlier time, full of smart dialogue but little emotional juice. Live theater does its most valuable work when presenting plays that are for and about our contemporary world or timeless classics that continue to resonate. One has to wonder when leaving Collected Stories — what’s the point of devoting so much time, effort, and artistry to a work that fits neither description?

Sue Turner-Cray Brings Manchester Girl to Life by Tom Jacobs

I

MARILYN KINGWILL

MEMORIES OF A FORMER MODEL f Sue Turner-Cray invites you to her Santa Ynez Valley home, be careful where you step. “I’m constantly folding origami cranes,” warned the award-winning actress and writer. “I’ve got buckets of cranes around the house. I’m getting more eccentric as I grow older.” Perhaps so. But from her life story — which is the basis of her one-woman show Manchester Girl, which she performs this weekend at Center Stage Theater — one gets the impression that Sue Turner she has always had a proclivity for the offbeat and unconventional. After all, here’s a woman who escaped dreary northern England by becoming a model and moving to Japan. While that chapter of her life is the focus of her play, the rest is pretty interesting, as well: moving to America, becoming an actress, marrying blues musician Robert Cray, and balancing her artistic aspirations with the full-time job that is raising her son. “My priorities have changed,” she said.“I feel like I’m freer onstage. I’m doing it more now for the joy of performance.” During her early years in the U.S., while studying acting at the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco and then pursuing a career in Los Angeles, Turner-Cray talked little about the time she spent as a fashion model in Japan. “I found it kind of embarrassing,” she recalled. “I was mortified by some of the things I did. You go through a lot of things for a 17-year-old girl, including drugs, date rape, and what I call ‘fascist dieting.’ ” But at some point, she said,“I just needed to write something.” So she started creating the monologues that would ultimately turn into her one-woman, 11-character show. “My hairdresser at the time was from Manchester, and I had been giving her little snippets [while getting my hair done],” Turner-Cray said. “She, by chance, had a friend who was the artistic director of a theater in Palos Verdes. They had a cancellation and asked me to come audition. Three weeks later, I was performing it.” That was in 2002. Later that year, she brought the show to Los Angeles, and two years later, she took it to the Edinburgh Festival and then to London, earning enthusiastic reviews at each stop. After that, she took a break to have her son and deal with the death of a parent. But recently she has been revisiting the material, adding a new ending, a geisha dance, a multimedia component created by Academy Award–winning film editor Richard Harris, and a few of the aforementioned cranes. She premiered this new version at a small Santa Ynez Valley theater last fall. After the brief Santa Barbara run, she will perform it as part of a solo theater festival in New York City. “It’s 75 percent based on my life, but I gave myself artistic license to [use stories] from other girls’ lives, as well,” she explained. “There are many things that happened to me, along with others that I heard about and saw. It was a pretty decadent time. People did die of overdoses.” For all the dark episodes she experienced and witnessed, however, “I don’t see myself as having been exploited,” she said. “I went in with my eyes open. I was grateful for the opportunity to get out of the industrial north [of England].” And it’s that determination, Turner-Cray added, that audiences seem to latch onto. “People tell me that it’s really empowering,” she said. “The audience meets her as an underdog, and they go through her obstacles with her. She’s striving to live outside of her comfort zone, and watching her do that makes people a little bit braver. “One of the things [my character] says a lot is, ‘Why not?’ ‘Why can’t I?’ I think a lot of people leave the theater going,‘Why not for me, too?’” Manchester Girl plays Thursday-Saturday, June 12-14, at 8 p.m. at Center Stage Theater (751 Paseo Nuevo).

Just Like Old Times James Taylor. At the Santa Barbara Bowl, Wednesday, June 4. Reviewed by Blake Harper

A

PAUL WELLMAN

fter almost half a century of music making, James Taylor may be growing weary of playing his hits night in and night out. But if that’s the way he feels, he’s certainly doing a good job hiding it; his concert at the Santa Barbara Bowl last week was an earnest and undeniably enjoyable performance, fueled by the same hits that helped launch Taylor’s career in ONE MORE TIME: After nearly 50 the first place. years of music making, James Taylor Performing for two is still going strong — and delighting and a half hours, Taylor’s fans. Last Wednesday, he played to a remarkably smooth voice packed Santa Barbara Bowl crowd. came across every bit as good live as it does on his albums. Many of the concert’s highlights occurred during Taylor’s biggest hits, as he seemed to feed off the energy of the enthusiastic audience. The excitement of the crowd reached a climax during “Fire and Rain,” in which Taylor sang each line with a heartfelt tenderness that likely made even the most die-hard fan feel as if they were listening to it for the first time. Other standout moments were classics like “Carolina In My Mind,”“You’ve Got a Friend,” and “Mexico.” One of Taylor’s greatest strengths is his ability to find power in simplicity, and this poured into all aspects of Wednesday’s concert. Far from the visual spectacles that many concertgoers have come to expect out of their amphitheatresized acts, Taylor opted to make the night solely about the music. There were pictures and clips projected onto the screens to accompany the songs, such as a photo of a couple holding hands during the beautifully sentimental “You Are My Only One,” but that was about it in terms of visuals. Fortunately, these projections were used sparingly, but effectively, and ultimately proved to be the perfect complement to Taylor’s brand of acoustic music. Similarly, the band that accompanied Taylor did an excellent job of not stealing the spotlight; their less-is-more style nicely accentuated Taylor’s multitude of talents. Most of the songs Taylor is performing on this tour were written decades ago, only proving the timelessness of his music. Though he may not be the flashiest or most outlandish performer around, last week’s Bowl concert served as an adequate reminder of Taylor’s unquestionable talent — and why millions ■ remain devoted all these years later.

Triumph Over Tragedy Jared & The Mill. At SOhO Restaurant & Music Club, Tuesday, June 3. Reviewed by Ginny Chung

F

orget the fact that it was Tuesday night — this well-meaning benefit concert was as good as it gets. The featured bands were captivating, attractive musicians hailing from Phoenix and Santa Barbara, all successors to America’s acoustic, folk, and bluegrass traditions, but each with their own twists. And everyone in attendance seemed enlivened to be there, supporting the families of the Isla Vista tragedy victims, who benefited from ticket sales. In a setting that could have been filled with somber sentiments, the choice was made to stay positive, and the result was a night’s worth of beautiful music. The self-described “fun headglue pop” of Todd & Erin captured the night’s mood, as the Santa Barbara duo stirred the audience with pop jams, which provided a nice segue into a very impressive set from Lee Koch. With his folksy bluegrass music, Koch quickly got the crowd’s heads nodding and feet tapping. What followed was an hour of cello, harmonica, violin, guitar, and lyrical wit that elevated Koch’s recordings to another plane and easily won him over some new fans. Headliner Jared & The Mill offered up some never-before-played, highenergy songs, drawing immediate comparison to bands Mumford & Sons and Of Monsters and Men. Similar music taste aside, though, Jared & The Mill delivered their songs powerfully, and with a good cause to boot. ■ juNE 12, 2014

Tapping the Source The Fault in Our Stars. Shailene Woodley, Ansel Elgort, and Nat Wolff star in a film written by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, based on the book by John Green, and directed by Josh Boone. Reviewed by Kit Steinkellner

T

he Fault in Our Stars was a phenomenon long before it hit theaters. Based on the best-selling novel (which has sold 10.7 million copies to date) by household-name author John Green, the trailer for the screen adaptation garnered more than 21 million views on YouTube and became the most “liked” video in YouTube history. It was also number one at the box office this, its opening weekend, pulling in $48 million. A film is considered successful if its box office numbers double its original budget over the course of its theatrical run. The Fault in Our Stars has pulled in four times its budget over the course of three days. When a movie rolls in with the fangirl and fanboy fanfare blaring at deafening volume, it’s completely understandable that one would be wary of the blisteringly intense exposure. How can a film possibly measure up to its expectations when its expectations are stratospheric? But this is the magician’s trick of The Fault in Our Stars, which manages to be hilarious, heartbreaking, and deeply human — even in the face of all the hype. The film tells the story of Hazel Grace Lancaster (played to perfection by Shailene Woodley), an intensely thoughtful, always-on-her-guard, terminally ill teen cancer patient who, at her cancer support group, meets the handsome and could-charm-the-skin-off-a-snake likable teen cancer survivor Augustus “Gus” Waters (Ansel Elgort in the most heart-throbbing breakout male role since Leonardo

DiCaprio graced the decks of the Titanic). Gus woos Hazel by getting The Genie Foundation (Make-a-Wish’s fictional stand-in here) to fly the teenagers to Amsterdam so that Hazel can meet her favorite author (a nicely done cameo by Willem Dafoe). Then, things take a turn for the worse for these star-crossed lovers, lest we not forget this is a story about teens with cancer that derives its title from Shakespearean tragedy Julius Caesar. Every element of this movie sings, from the impeccable casting to the gracefully faithful book-to-film script adaptation to Josh Boone’s pitch-perfect direction. Believe the ■ hype. This film has earned it.

he whole point of the Adam and Eve tale is to highlight the infinite perversity of human beings and the extent to which they will screw things up, even if given perfection. The Galapagos Affair, a flawed, frustrating, yet fascinating documentary about a doomed effort by a German couple to create their own island paradise reminds us that at least in this regard, the Bible got it right. Since four of the major players in this failed five-year utopian experiment wound up either dead or disappeared, the film purports to give us a whodunit, but one in which the goods never quite get delivered. Even so, this pseudo mystery works just fine as a sublime meditation on all the ways human beings can’t get along. The story begins in 1929, when Friedrich Ritter, a German doctor obsessed with proto-existential philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, decides to leave his wife and take up with a sick patient, Dore Strauch, on Florean Island off the coast of Ecuador. “Floreana,” as they dub it, is hot, dry, rocky, inhospitable, and unforgiving, much like the overbearing personality of the doctor himself, who had precious little good to say of his long-suffering partner. Still, the two are resourceful, living naked and hacking some semblance of an existence from the island’s unyielding terrain. When Southern California oil man Allan Hancock stumbled onto the Floreana experiment, the world press was soon agog with stories about the island. Such accounts inspired Heinz Wittmer, another German of adventurous

ISLAND OF EDEN: The Galapagos Affair recounts a series of unsolved disappearances revolving around an idealistic, island-bound German couple. spirit, to pick up stakes with his pregnant wife and sickly teenage son and join in on the fun. The story really picks up steam when Baroness Eloise Wehrborn de WagnerBosquet arrived to the island, with two lovers and an Ecuadorian manservant in tow. Her plan, naturally, was to re-create the place as tourist destination. The arrival of the baroness brought increased traffic to Floreana, as well as cameras, which help provide this documentary with its real visual meat. Hancock makes a dramatic home movie along the way, too. Meanwhile, actors like Cate Blanchett read from the journals of the various players, detailing their daily life and constant strife. It’s hard to imagine how anyone could get in the way of such a great true-life parable, but filmmakers Dayna Goldfine and Daniel Geller allow themselves to get bogged down by their story. The narrative flow is at times distracting, jumbled, and unclear, the product of an abundance of riches that proved too hard to pare down. Still, this wonderfully weird and tragically inevitable tale is well worth ■ the effort.

june 12, 2014

It’s a tough sell, this movie. Just the posters of Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt in futuristic armor — she’s got a samurai machete over her shoulder — seem suspect. But it’s much better than you might guess, especially during the first hour. For one, the sight of Tom Cruise as a sniveling, cowardly talking head is immediately gratifying. And director Doug Liman (Jumper) provides a breathtaking opening sequence that both challenges and rewards its viewers. In rapid bursts, we see news feeds from Europe highlighting the crash landing of an apparent asteroid and immediate onslaught of an alien invasion. The story cuts to Cruise as a slimy military spokesperson suddenly dragooned into an invasion force that self-consciously recalls the Normandy Steven Spielberg envisioned in Saving Private Ryan. Instead of Nazis, though, he’s battling wire whisk juggernaut thingies that hiss at you. What happens next is a time-loop tale that owes as much to video-game structures as it does to Groundhog Day. For reasons better left obscure, Cage (Cruise) finds himself repeating and repeating the same battle scenario, learning in dinky, painful increments. Once the structure of the plot becomes plain, though, the audience is left in the same numbed state Inception induced. It’s hard to feel much for protagonists who really can’t be destroyed. But that doesn’t mean you won’t have fun. The script twists around like its aliens, and it’s all visually arresting. A lot of the goods come from Emily Blunt, who plays a tough warrior, and Bill Paxton, who seems to be a mandatory casting whenever monsters meet the military. But the most interesting aspect of Edge is its implicit relationship to gaming; there are

repeated battles, ascending worlds, and antiseptic violence. For decades, the smart kids’ guilty pleasure was comic books, which have already taken over movies completely. This film seems to signal video games as the new junk-movie-aesthetic principle. It’s too bad we don’t care what happens to Cruise, but it’s interesting that we remain fascinated by all the places the film takes him. (DJP) Camino Real (2-D)/Metro 4 (2-D)

Words and Pictures (111 mins.; PG-13: sexual material including nude sketches, language, some mature thematic material)

This is a good film ruined by a bad kiss. It’s hard to believe that Clive Owen and Juliette Binoche might seem sexier while debating aesthetic issues in front of students than when making out in a waterfront art studio, but sadly, such is the case. When the chief protagonists finally end their typical romance-movie bickering with soulful gazes, the payoff smooch is so awkward that you find yourself thinking, yuck — and then praying that the sex scene won’t be explicit. Owen, who plays an alcoholic English teacher, and Binoche, the new art instructor crippled by rheumatoid arthritis, have undeniable chemistry as foes. But when they lock lips, they seem to still be fighting, and the script won’t give them any decent pillow-talk intervals to wipe the slightly creepy residual feeling out of our minds. The fault isn’t only in the writing, though. There’s a tradition to uphold: Liberal-arts, prep-school dramas always

Three radical environmentalists (Jesse Eisenberg, Dakota Fanning, Peter Sarsgaard) plot to explode a hydroelectric dam. Plaza de Oro

✯ Chef (115 mins.; R: language, some suggestive references)

✯ Godzilla (123 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of destruction, mayhem, creature violence) The famous monster is pitted against malevolent creatures who threaten to wipe out humanity. Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen star. Gareth Edwards’s reimagining of Ishirô Honda’s masterful, sad Gojira (1954) manages the impossible. It’s both impressive and cheesy without resorting to soupy camp. (DJP) Paseo Nuevo

✯ Ida

(80 mins.; PG-13: thematic elements, some sexuality, smoking)

A young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland discovers a dark family secret just as she’s on the verge of taking her vows. Director Pawel Pawlikowski’s stunning compositions and weird perspective choices force us out into Ida’s wintry bleakness in the most surprising of ways. (DJP) Riviera Maleficent (97 mins.; PG: sequences of scary fantasy action and violence, frightening images)

Angelina Jolie stars as a vindictive fairy who sets a curse on an infant child before realizing that the child may be the only one who can restore peace to the kingdom. This movie is clearly derived from half-baked ideas, but Jolie only seems motivated to make us believe that a character named Evil can change. (DJP) Camino Real (2- D)/Fiesta 5 (2-D)

The Signal (95 mins.; PG-13: some thematic elements, violence, language)

Three friends are drawn into an isolated area by a computer genius. After everything goes dark, one awakes to discover himself in a living nightmare. Metro 4

A cowardly farmer falls in love with the new woman in town but then must deal with her gun-slinging husband. Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy) writes, directs, and stars. Paseo Nuevo Neighbors (96 mins.; R: pervasive language, strong crude and sexual content, graphic nudity, drug use throughout)

Two new parents struggle when they are forced to live next door to a frat house. Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, and Zac Efron star. It may take too long to get funny, and feels like pieces are missing, but the slapstick moments work just fine. Better still, in a film about two dudes, it’s really all about Byrne here.

Jon (Swingers) Favreau writes, directs, and stars in this story about a chef who loses his restaurant job and starts up a food truck as a way to reunite his estranged family.

Law and ethics, and everything in between.

seem to accentuate the underlying whiff of failure in the teacher’s lives, from Mr. Chips and Miss Jean Brodie to Robin Williams as John Keating. (This film steals more than a bit from Dead Poets Society, including the “Captain, My Captain” clichés.) But director Fred Schepisi, now eons away from his great early work like The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith, moves actors around gracelessly. The drunk scenes are as plodding as the classroom rants. But Words and Pictures’ strengths come when it gives us a sense of lives adjusting to the beginning of the end. Binoche’s character decides to greet Owen’s as a possible mate because, as she puts it, life has taken so much away from her already. She wants to see if it can work again. Contrasting this with the students preparing to meet their own scary lives makes for nice bathos and humor. It also sets an unconventional stage for a romance film. While the two teachers are fighting, the movie comes alive. In the end, however, Schepisi ruins the effect by letting sexy actors kiss like dorky high school nerds. (DJP) Plaza de Oro

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF JUNE  ARIES

CANCER

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): In its quest for nectar, a hummingbird sips from a thousand flowers every day. As it flaps its wings 70 times a second, zipping from meal to meal, it can fly sideways, backward, or forward. If it so desires, it can also hover or glide upside-down. It remembers every flower it visits and knows how long it will take before each flower will produce a new batch of nectar. To some Spanish speakers, hummingbirds are known as joyas voladoras, or “flying jewels.” Now take everything I’ve just said, Aries, and use it as a metaphor for who you can be in the coming week.

(June 21 - July 22): You have a strong, intricate understanding of where you have come from. The old days and old ways continue to feed you with their mysterious poignancy. You don’t love every one of your past experiences, but you love ruminating about them and feeling the way they changed you. Until the day you die many years from now, your history will keep evolving, providing an endless stream of new teachings. And yet at this particular moment in your destiny, Cancerian, I think your most important task is to focus on where you are going to. That’s why I urge you to temporarily forget everything you think you know about your past and instead concentrate on getting excited about the future.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): In 1947, the impossibly wealthy Duke of Windsor went shopping in Paris to buy a gift for his wife, the Duchess. She already had everything she wanted, so he decided to get creative. He commissioned the luxury-goods manufacturer Hermés to build her a high-fashion black-leather wheelbarrow. I am not urging you to acquire something like that for yourself, Taurus. But I do like it as a symbol for what you need in your life right now: a blend of elegance and usefulness, of playful beauty and practical value, of artistry and hard work.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Your brain absorbs about 11 million pieces of information every second but is consciously aware of less than .001 percent of all that richness. Or at least, that’s usually the case. Having analyzed your astrological omens, I suspect that you might soon jack that figure up as high as .01 percent — a ten-fold increase! Do you think you can handle that much raw input? Are you amenable to being so acutely perceptive? How will you respond if the world is ten times more vivid than usual? I’m pretty confident. I suspect you won’t become a bug-eyed maniac freaking out on the intensity, but rather will be a soulful, wonder-filled explorer in love with the intensity. Homework: Imagine your future self has sent a message to you back through time. What is it? Write: uaregod@comcast.net.

25798

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): In 1928, Bobby Pearce won a gold medal in rowing at the Summer Olympics in Amsterdam. An unforeseen event almost sabotaged his victory. As he rowed his boat along the Sloten Canal, a family of ducks swam leisurely from shore to shore directly across his path. He stopped to let them pass, allowing an opponent who was already ahead of him to gain an even bigger advantage. Yet he ultimately won the race, rowing with such vigor after the duck incident that he finished well ahead of his challenger. I foresee a comparable sequence in your life, Leo. Being thoughtful and expressing compassion may seem to slow you down, but in the end that won’t hinder you from achieving your goal — and may even help.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): In one of her “Twenty-One Love Poems,” Adrienne Rich talks about her old self in the third person.“The woman who cherished / her suffering is dead. I am her descendant. / I love the scar tissue she handed on to me, / but I want to go from here with you / fighting the temptation to make a career of pain.” With your approval, Virgo, I’d like to make that passage one of your keynotes in the coming months. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you will have an excellent opportunity to declare your independence from an

affliction you’ve been addicted to. Are you willing to say good-bye to one of your signature forms of suffering?

to meld opposites like these as you shape that supreme work of art — your life.

LIBRA

CAPRICORN

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): “You should be interviewing roses not people,” says a character in Anne Carson’s book The Autobiography of Red. That’s sound poetic advice for you in the coming days, Libra. More than you can imagine, you will benefit from being receptive to and learning from non-human sources: roses, cats, dogs, spiders, horses, songbirds, butterflies, trees, rivers, the wind, the moon, and any other intelligences that make themselves available to you. I’m not saying you should ignore the revelations offered by people. But your emphasis should be on gathering in wisdom from life forces that don’t communicate with words.

(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Haggis is a Scottish pudding. According to the gourmet food encyclopedia Larousse Gastronomique, it has “an excellent nutty texture and delicious savory flavor.” And yet, to be honest, its ingredients don’t sound promising. To make it, you gather the lungs, liver, small intestine, and heart of a sheep, put all of that stuff inside the stomach of the sheep along with oatmeal, onions, salt, and suet, and then simmer the whole mess for three hours. I’m guessing that your work in the coming week may have a certain metaphorical resemblance to making haggis, Capricorn. The process could be a bit icky, but the result should be pretty tasty.

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): William Shockley was a Nobel Prize–winning physicist who coinvented the transistor. He also helped launch the revolution in information technology and has been called “the man who brought silicon to Silicon Valley.” Time magazine named him one of the hundred most influential people of the 20th century. On the other hand, Shockley became a controversial advocate of eugenics, which damaged his reputation, led many to consider him a racist, and played a role in his estrangement from his friends and family. I suspect that you will have to deal with at least one Shockley-type phenomenon in the coming weeks, Scorpio. Will you overlook the bad stuff in order to take advantage of the good? Should you?

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): Almost a hundred years ago, worldfamous comedian Charlie Chaplin decided to take part in a Charlie Chaplin look-alike contest in San Francisco. He did his best to imitate himself, but it wasn’t good enough. He didn’t come close to winning. But I think you would have a different fate if you entered a comparable competition in the coming weeks. There’s no question in my mind that you would be crowned as the person who most resembles you. Maybe more than ever before, you are completely yourself. You look like your true self, you feel like your true self, and you are acting like your true self. Congratulations! It’s hard work to be so authentic.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Novelist Herman Melville wrote that in order to create art, “unlike things must meet and mate.” Like what? “Sad patience” and “joyous energies,” for example; both of them are necessary, he said.“Instinct and study” are crucial ingredients, as well as humility and pride, audacity and reverence, and “a flame to melt” and a “wind to freeze.” Based on my interpretation of the astrological omens, Sagittarius, I believe you will soon need

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): “The art of medicine consists in amusing the patient while nature cures the disease,” said French philosopher Francois-Marie Voltaire. That principle will be useful for you to invoke in the coming weeks. You definitely need to be cured, although the “disease” you are suffering from is primarily psychospiritual rather than strictly physical. Your task will be to flood yourself with fun adventures, engaging stories, and playtime diversions so that nature can heal you without the interference of your worries and kibitzing.

Garnet Vineyards Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 2012 Growing up amongst the orchards of Carpinteria, Alison Crowe knew by age 17 that she wanted to be involved in agriculture as a winemaker, so she studied at UC Davis and toiled for years in California’s iconic vineyards and cellars, from Chalone to Bonny Doon. Today, she makes wine for Garnet, which is owned by one of the state’s largest vineyard companies, and produces a series of affordable‑yet‑classic pinot noir and chardonnay from her favorite properties in Sonoma and Monterey counties. This is a blend of fruit from the Russian River, the Stanly Ranch in Carneros, and the hilltops of Rodgers Creek Vineyard in the Petaluma Gap area (which Crowe is working to make an official appellation), offering a juicy yet spicy take on pinot. Buy it at the Carpinteria Wine Co. or BevMo. See garnetvineyards.com.

Los Agaves by JOHN DICKSON

L

ast October, rumors hit my inbox claiming that Los Arroyos was going to replace New Baja Grill in Camino Real Marketplace. I spoke with owner Kelly Brown at the time, who also owns Kahuna Grill and Natural Café, and he said offers were made, but the asking price had not been met. Now I am hearing that rival Los Agaves has swooped in and scooped up New Baja Grill and will replace it in a few months. Los Agaves has locations at  North Milpas Street and  De la Vina Street. Brown plans to open a Natural Café in Camino Real Marketplace in the fall and close the Old Town Goleta location.

UNLESS YOU TAKE ACTION TO PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY, IT MAY BE SOLD AT A PUBLIC SALE. IF YOU NEED AN EXPLANATION OF THE NATURE OF THE PROCEEDINGS AGAINST YOU, YOU SHOULD CONTACT A LAWYER. ________________________________ _________________________________ _________________________________ _______ On 06/27/2014 at 1:00PM, Lender’s Foreclosure Services as the duly appointed Trustee under and pursuant to Deed of Trust Recorded on 04/16/2007 as instrument number 2007‑0027564 of official records in the Office of the Recorder of Santa Barbara County, California, executed by: Sofia

june 12, 2014

Ojeda, a married woman as her sole and separate property, as Trustor, WILL SELL AT PUBLIC AUCTION TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER FOR CASH (payable at time of sale in lawful money of the United States, by cash, a cashier’s check drawn by a state or national bank, a check drawn by a state or federal credit union, or a check drawn by a state or federal savings and loan association, savings association, or savings bank specified in section 5102 of the Financial Code and authorized to do business in this state). At: the North Door of the main entrance to the County Courthouse, 1100 Anacapa st., Santa Barbara, CA, all right, title and interest conveyed to and now held by it under said Deed of Trust in the property situated in said County, California describing the land therein: As more fully described in said Deed of Trust The property heretofore described is being sold “as is”. The street address and other common designation, if any, of the real property described above is purported to be: 30 Nectarine Avenue, Goleta, CA 93117. The undersigned Trustee disclaims any liability for any incorrectness of the street address and other common designation, if any, shown herein. Said sale will be made, but without covenant or warranty, expressed or implied, regarding title, possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest thereon, as provided in said note(s), advances, if any, under the terms of the Deed of Trust, estimated fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust, to‑wit: $86,330.54 (Estimated). Accrued interest and additional advances, if any, will increase this figure prior to sale. The Beneficiary may elect to bid less than the full credit bid. The beneficiary under said Deed of Trust heretofore executed and delivered to the undersigned a written Declaration of Default and Demand for Sale, and a written Notice of Default and Election to Sell. The undersigned caused said Notice of Default and Election to Sell to be recorded in the county where the real property is located and more than three months have elapsed since such recordation. 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, you may call (626) 579‑5350 or visit this Internet Web site , using the file number assigned to this case 14‑02‑781.

Meet Rufus

Rufus is a fun guy that doesn’t know he has a lot of problems. He is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on shots. He has neurological issues but that doesn’t stop him!

Meet Mochi

Mochi is a very sweet Lhasa Apso. He loves car rides and cuddling in bed. He’s neutered, up to date on shots, and microchipped. He’d be best in a single dog home with no kids.
