LAW & DISORDER

The jail rides program — which serves 50-75 late-night or early-morning releasees monthly — will continue another year, thanks to $10,000 awarded by county supervisors on 6/11. A taxi takes releasees to certain locations during public transportation off-hours; the program had been searching for ways to stay afloat after one of its main donors dropped out. On 7/1, the supervisors will consider allowing an outside religious organization to provide amenities. A Santa Barbara man arrested in 2012 for a string of armed parking-kiosk robberies and a bank heist will be sentenced to 28 years in prison after he reached a plea deal with prosecutors. Paul Gradias, 51, had previously pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and has been in custody in County Jail since his arrest. A registered sex offender, he has two prior strikes on his record: one from Santa Barbara County for forcible oral copulation and residential burglary, and one out of Washington State for forcible rape. PAU L WELLM AN

hen Raymond Macias, a well-known leader of the East Side Krazies street gang, was arrested last June on torture and extortion charges, law enforcement officials crowed they’d just nabbed Mister Big, or as he would be described throughout the four-week criminal trial that just concluded in Santa Maria, “the Big Homie.” At the time of his arrest, Macias was described as a major drug lord and Santa Barbara County’s top tax collector for the Sureños, a fearsome Southern California prison gang with connections to the even more fearsome Mexican Mafia. Specifically, he was charged with kidnapping Lompoc drug dealer and gang member Stephen Mendibles when Mendibles failed to make good on a $1,100 debt he owed Macias. In her final words to the jury, prosecuting attorney Anne Bramsen sought to reinforce this theme. “Mr. Macias condones violent behavior,” she said.“He engages in violent behavior.” In stark contrast, Macias’s attorney, Michael Scott, spent the better part of two hours portraying his client as a bumbling, stumbling, “weak” gang boss. Macias, said Scott, gave deadbeat drug dealers too many chances, making repeated “courtesy visits” to those who owed, and often paying off their debts out of his own pocket. Yes, Scott admitted, Macias was a drug dealer, a Sureño gang member, and even a tax collector. But he should not be confused with Tony Montana, the bloodthirsty drug dealer of Scarface fame. Nor should he be equated with the calculating cunning of Machiavelli or the corporate ruthlessness of Henry Ford. What kind of criminal mastermind, Scott wondered, left incriminating text messages on his cell phone or kept receipts in his apartment of Western Union payments he’d wired to the Mexican Mafia? Both sides agree that early last January, Macias put out the word he wanted “to talk” with Mendibles. Both sides agree that after two courtesy visits, Mendibles went into hiding. Eventually, he was found by members of the Lompoc gang, VLP, and taken to a garage, where it was understood he was to be beaten. The beating was part of a gang practice known as “checking,” in which those who violate protocol are soundly thrashed by a larger group of gang members. They are expected, however, to fight back. In this case, Mendibles quickly got the better of his attackers. Luis Almanza, an alleged enforcer with gang ties from Texas, picked up a hatchet and whacked Mendibles twice, once on the arm and once on the side. (Almanza was also on trial for extortion and torture.) Mendibles, who never sought medical treatment for his injuries, testified his arm remains injured from the attack. All sides agree Macias was not present for any of this and only arrived 90 minutes later. He untied Mendibles and let him go, though not before notifying Mendibles he had three days to heal, after which he would be “poked” with a knife. Many of the gang members who participated in the attack testified they were acting

on what they believed to be Macias’s orders. It came out during the trial that Macias’s younger brother had been recently checked by Mendibles, sustaining a fractured cheek and broken arm in the process. Scott countered that Macias never ordered any such thing and was “shocked” that Almanza “went off the rails.” Neither a VLP nor a Sureño, Almanza reportedly lacked the gang standing to strike Mendibles in a formal checking. Likewise, Scott pointed out that those who testified against Macias made deals with the prosecution to get more lenient sentences. He also noted that Philip Lopez, who was involved in the “checking,” harbored a serious grudge against Mendibles, who reportedly had sex with Lopez’s girlfriend when Lopez was in prison. In closing arguments, Scott sought to persuade the jury that Macias could never have known that by indicating an interest in merely “talking” with Mendibles, he would trigger such an improbable chain of events. “That’s not reasonably foreseeable,” he insisted. Improbable, yes, Bramsen retorted, but quite possible and easily imaginable. At the time, she noted, two North County gang members had recently been murdered for not paying taxes on their drug sales. Perhaps her single most damning evidence was a video of Macias speaking to his girlfriend while in county jail, saying — in gang sign language —“He was there when I had [Mendibles].”

In the past year, law enforcement officials have expressed concern that the Mexican Mafia has emerged as a more serious presence in Santa Barbara’s scene. That was certainly one of the key issues raised during the fourweek trial on the City of Santa Barbara’s proposed gang injunction, a trial that concluded three weeks ago. In that trial, prosecutors made much of testimony by longtime gang member Arthur Nevarez, who claimed that the reduction in violent gang activity throughout the South Coast reflected the wishes and direction of the Mexican Mafia. Nevarez, now an informant who participated in an anti-gang documentary, testified gang violence is bad for business because it attracts law enforcement attention. Macias was named in the city’s proposed gang injunction, and though he was not present in Judge Colleen Sterne’s courtroom, his name was frequently invoked by prosecutors to buttress Nevarez’s claim. At the time of his arrest, Macias was on the payroll of Palabra, a high-profile nonprofit organization led by former gang members that is dedicated to reducing gang violence. Law enforcement looked with keen distrust at Palabra because its leaders exposed informants, instructed at-risk teens not to cooperate with police, and did not urge them to renounce gang membership, just gang ■ violence.

To the surprise and delight of police and the Coalition Against Gun Violence, this weekend’s anonymous gun buyback at the Earl Warren Showgrounds was declared an unmitigated success. A total of 239 firearms were exchanged for $20,000 in Vons gift cards, including 108 handguns, 84 rifles, 41 shotguns, and six assault weapons. There were no protesters or unruly participants, and the energetic response has inspired talk of another buyback. Three Santa Barbara police officers — Officer Jon Reyes, Sgt. Ed Olsen, and Officer Kyle Lowry — were recognized for “particularly positive policing” during an awards ceremony hosted by the Optimist Club of Santa Barbara. Nominations for the awards were received during March, and a committee of Optimist Club members and a police representative selected the awardees.

CITY The SBCC Board of Trustees approved placing a $288 million facility-improvement bond measure on the November ballot. The resolution is about $20 million less than the one the board had previously entertained, and it comes after approximately a year of deliberation. Among a slew of renovations and modernizations on the main campus and at the two satellite campuses, the bond measure would replace the college’s portable classrooms with a permanent building if approved by 55 percent of voters. Funds must be used on remodeling, not salaries, and would cost homeowners $16.65 per every $100,000 of their homes’ assessed valuation. The ubiquitous tan trucks of MarBorg Industries just received the Green Seal of approval for environmental sustainability. In a ceremony

Drip, Drop, Drought

A rising tide may lift all boats, but the current drought — one of the worst in state history — has clearly hit the multitude of county water districts with dramatically different impact. Earlier this year, it appeared the Montecito Water District might literally find itself out of water come July, but thanks to tough new rationing rules and stiff fines for violators, Montecito residents have cut back consumption by 40 percent. That, coupled with a handful of deals, will enable Montecito to limp into the next year with enough water to meet basic needs should it not rain. The new doom-and-gloom poster child is the Santa Ynez River Water Conservation District, which now appears poised to pull the plug on its long-term agricultural customers, more in response to issues about water quality rather than quantity. This emerged during a high-octane gab fest hosted by the county supervisors and attended by a who’s who of the county’s water establishment. Although the Santa Ynez district boasts robust groundwater aquifers, its water also has ambient levels of hexavalent chromium-6 — the contaminant made famous in the Erin Brockovich movie — that violate water quality standards that go into effect July 1. As a result, the Santa Ynez district, serving 6,700 customers, will be forced to shut down about half its wells. District manager Chris Dahlstrom complained that efforts to delay implementation of the new regulations — which he estimated will cost the small district $25 million — fell on deaf ears in Sacramento, where representatives Das Williams and HannahBeth Jackson, he charged, were of little help. (Jackson responded that she was contacted before the regulations were enacted and that the district has at least 18 months before it could be deemed out of compliance. That, she said, was sufficient time to assess the proper legislative response.) With the district poised to declare a water supply emergency, Dahlstrom said he may be forced to cut off agricultural customers, who, by law, the district is not required to serve. They will respond by drilling new wells, which, in turn, will cause ground water levels to drop even faster than they already have, he predicted. In the meantime, the Santa Ynez district will be forced to pump its wells along the Santa Ynez River harder than usual, thus tapping into flows that normally benefit Lompoc and other — Nick Welsh downstream users.

The three-story office building at 3757 State Street next to Whole Foods has been sold for nearly $10 million to an undisclosed buyer. Completely renovated in 2012, the 20,000-squarefoot structure is occupied by Citibank on its first floor and local and regional office tenants on its second and third. The property had not been updated since it was built in the 1970s and had suffered from spotty tenancy throughout the years. Radius Commercial Real Estate & Investments, which brokered the deal, called the transaction “the largest office building sale on upper State Street in nearly a decade.”

COUNTY The supervisors passed the 2014-15 budget on 6/11, despite a “no” vote from Peter Adam on the document as a whole and an abstention from him on the decision to spend $102 million on maintenance costs over the next 10 years. That $102 million will come from setting aside 18 percent of future revenue growth. Adam’s symbolic obstruction — he wanted a 50-55 percent allocation — frustrated his colleagues, who said that $102 million was a “win” for him in the wake of voters rejecting Measure M. Overall revenues ($905 million) will outpace expenditures ($903 million) in the next year. Last week, Venoco Inc. laid off a number of administrative positions, and the oil company cited the shift away from Monterey shale explo-

Teacher Tenure Struck Down

Landmark Ruling Looks to Weed the Lemons from Public Education

LEFT TO RIGHT: Natalia Cardenas, Professor Ann Hefferman, and Hector Medina are with UCSB’s Urban Art Workshop course.

Six blue-and-gold fish, flashing UCSB’s colors and ascending upward, have been added to the sea turtle mural on an apartment building in Isla Vista. Representing the six victims who lost their lives in the mass murder on 5/23, the fish were included into existing imagery that commemorates the last time Isla Vista was shaken so violently, when David Attias killed four people in 2001. Spearheading the effort was a UCSB course titled Urban Art Workshop, which is dedicated to creating and preserving I.V. murals.

IN THE TRENCHES: Last week’s tentative ruling has ignited a lively discussion about the classroom environment, seen here in Ms. Sawicki’s class at Cleveland Elementary School.

The person behind the two-year probationary period in California is Gary K. Hart, former state legislator for Santa Barbara and founder of an institute for education reform. “I personally feel that it is an important decision because it will force a public debate that is long overdue,” Hart said of the ruling. In 1983, Hart authored a hefty package of education reform bills — securing bipartisan support and money for schools — which shrunk the probationary period from three years to two. Before 1983, administrators had a difficult time terminating even probationary teachers, but because of the measure, they were given a window to dismiss without the laborious process. Always controversial, tenure in education strengthened in the 1960s, but it dates back to the turn of the 20th century when teachers were dismissed for arcane reasons. As the California law currently stands, new teachers must either be dismissed or granted permanent status within the first two years on the job. However, administrators have to grant tenure within 18 months because the decision not to “reelect” a probationary educator must be made before the state deadline of March 15. One consequence is that administrators may opt to dismiss new teachers whom they may have been on the fence about, leaving fresh educators with potential without work. “There’s got to be a better way,” Heron added. “Obviously it can’t be personal. There’s got to be a systematic way to evaluate the teaching pool.” In the past two years, 20 probationary teachers in the Santa Barbara Unified School District have been dismissed before their permanent status kicked in. Complicating the matter further, the district currently employs 48 temporary teachers, whose salaries are paid for by “soft” money. These instructors receive “end-of-assignment” notices every March and must wait until the next year’s budget is finalized before finding out if they’ve gotten their job back. “The new teachers have nowhere to go, and that is frustrating,” said Simon Dixon, president of Washington Elementary School’s Parent Teacher Organization. Dixon explained that Washinton has lost great teachers who were low in the “pecking order.” Though the number of temporary teachers has declined in the past several years — there were 122 temps in 2009 — a portion has remained in such status for multiple years.

PUBLIC SCREAMS, LEGISLATORS SCURRY The last time permanent teacher status grabbed headlines was in 2012 after an especially egregious case in the Los Angeles Unified School

District in which a teacher allegedly fed semen to his elementary school students. Instead of engaging in the lengthy dismissal process, the district settled with the teacher for $40,000. A public outcry prompted state legislators to act on an Assembly bill that would have given a school board final say on dismissals for heinous crimes, instead of the three-person panel made up of a judge and two educators. At the time, union leaders ardently opposed the bill, which became trapped in the education committee; th District representative Das Williams along with three others abstained from the vote. Following two years of legislative wrangling, a reformed version of that measure — AB  — has been endorsed by the teachers’ union and will likely be signed by the governor soon. This means egregious cases would be heard by a judge sitting alone — instead of the three-person panel. Deadlines for the appeal process for all dismissal cases would also be implemented. In a recent interview with The Santa Barbara Independent, Williams said he’s “proud to live up to a promise to his constituents” to pass a bill that protects students from harm while honoring due process.

DISMISSAL: WHAT IT ACTUALLY TAKES

“If a teacher is unsatisfactory,” said Santa Barbara schools Superintendent David Cash, “I believe it’s the principal’s obligation to make them a satisfactory [teacher] with coaching, professional learning, and support sitting in the classroom.” If a flagged teacher remains unsatisfactory after Peer Assistance and Review, the district notifies the employee in writing of the charges against him or her, and a “Skelly hearing” takes place. If the district decides to proceed with dismissal — and the school board concurs — the teacher may appeal the decision, and a hearing that is conducted by a threeperson panel ensues. Attorneys would likely be involved in every step, said Christensen, and if the employee is successful in the appeal, he or she retains the position and the district must pay for the teacher’s attorney’s fees. In 2005, district administrators embarked on a five-year dismissal process with a high school teacher, who was accused of making anti-Semitic remarks and forcibly removing a student wearing an Israeli police T-shirt. The case went all the way to the state Courts of Appeal, which cleared his name. The panel determined the teacher was fit to run a classroom. He was reinstated at Santa Barbara High School, where he still works. The district spent roughly $1 million on the entire process, including paid leave of approximately $60,000 each year. ■

What’s Next for Isla Vista?

It’s hard to argue that UCSB has had a rough year. Even before the horrific tragedy of May 23, gang rapes and stabbings and riots — coupled with student efforts to get “trigger warnings” placed on course syllabi — made headlines and seemed to indicate an uptick in disorder in the notorious oceanfront town. “It has been both romanticized and vilified,” wrote Chancellor Henry Yang in a lengthy email sent to the university community last week. Noting that events that occur in Isla Vista reflect — positively and negatively — on UCSB, Yang outlined new improvement efforts resulting from a new committee, which may represent a shift in university administrators buckling down on the saturated college town. Referencing the Long Range Management Plan, Yang mentioned lighting first. He wrote with some urgency that the university committed an additional $220,000 to the county for immediate improvements. In the past year, lights were installed along Del Playa Drive, Sabado Tarde, and Trigo Road through a county-led effort dubbed the Isla Vista Street LED Project. Last week 3rd District Supervisor Doreen Farr announced she secured $85,000 to fund the final phase of the project. Yang also mentioned controversial topics such as parking — the possibility of implementing resident permits — and permanent fencing. (Portions of the temporary orange mesh fencing were torn down by an angry student a day after it was installed last week.) Yang also promised university-police-sponsored DUI checkpoints beginning in September. It’s no secret that alcohol and drugs play a considerable role in Isla Vista’s havoc. Currently, incoming students must participate in an online tutorial for substance abuse and sexual violence called Gaucho FYI, and Yang said such programs will be expanded and specified to conditions in Isla Vista. Earlier this year, the Obama administration publicized the lack of attention given to sexual violence at colleges — Kelsey Brugger nationwide.

press time Wednesday morning. Other federal and local government sources declined to comment on the incident, citing the Coast Guard’s jurisdiction in such matters. Check independent.com for updates. Just 10 years after the Channel Islands fox was listed by the federal government as an endangered species, the furry critter is doing so well that experts now say those protections are no longer needed. So announced Dave Garcelon of the Institute for Wildlife Studies to much applause from the 16th annual meeting of the Island Fox Conservation Working Group in Ventura on Tuesday. “This is a special circumstance,” said Garcelon, who also petitioned to list the fox under the Endangered Species Act. “To also be petitioning delisting? I don’t think that’s ever happened before. Normally, you never live that long.”

MONTECITO In recent weeks, more than 100 customers have appealed to the Montecito Water District to waive their penalties for over-watering, increase their drought allocations, or provide new service connections. Generally, district officials said, the board waives penalties — but not the cost of water — if a leak was to blame and the customer can prove that it was quickly repaired. But because of Montecito’s shrinking reservoir supply, the board has so far denied all requests for additional water. To read more, go to independent.com. Along with their water bills, residents of Montecito and Summerland received a notice this month of a class-action lawsuit pending in Santa Barbara Superior Court against the Montecito Water District, filed by Patrick Nesbitt, owner of the polo fields on Via Real. The lawsuit alleges that the district’s residential and commercial customers from 2008-2013 are entitled to a refund because the district illegally charged lower rates for agricultural customers. Nesbitt lost a previous lawsuit against the district in which he sought to qualify for agricultural water rates.

Considering Botox and Filler? Tony Vallejo (pictured) — an accountant who formerly chaired the Goleta Valley Chamber of Commerce, served as treasurer for Roger Aceves’s bid for 2nd District Supervisor, and recently expressed interest in running for council — was appointed to the Goleta City Council on 6/17. Vallejo beat out six other candidates for the position, which came about after Ed Easton resigned in May; Vallejo will hold the seat through 2016. He called the job “a great responsibility and a lot of work” — he supports revitalizing Old Town and ending the city’s tax-sharing deal with the county — and said he was “deeply, deeply honored” to be chosen.

DEATHS Holly Eve Brooks, who cofounded and ran Pence Ranch Vineyards and Winery with her longtime life partner, Blair Pence, was killed on 6/14 shortly after midnight when the allterrain vehicle she was driving on their private property flipped onto her. She was 54. “It’s a tragic loss, and we’re all just trying to grapple with it,” said Pence, who called Brooks the “love of his life” in a message to family and friends.

Frack-tured Lines Enviros Want Cyclic Steaming Gone

DAN I EL DREI FUSS / SA NTA M A R I A TI MES

S

BY LY Z H O F F M A N even months and one day removed from a controversial approval of Santa Maria Energy’s 136 cyclic-steam-injection wells, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously last Friday to place a measure on the November ballot that would ban new cyclic-steaming, hydraulic-fracturing, and acidizing operations in the unincorporated areas of the county. Although the four-hour hearing’s conclusion was foregone — it was either put the initiative on the ballot or adopt it outright — its messages echoed those of previous meetings on the divisive issue. Hundreds packed the North County boardroom, splitting among those who supported the ban and those who didn’t. But the speakers tilted strongly in favor of the initiative, imploring Santa Barbara, the birthplace of the environmental movement, to take a leadership position. They spoke more about cyclic steaming than fracking — the former involves pumping heated water into the ground to thin and release the oil, while fracking breaks the rock — and minimized the opposition’s fears about lost jobs and tax revenues but maximized the concerns about the methods’ heavy reliance on water in a time of extreme drought and a continued reliance on fossil fuels in the face of climate change. Supporters donned shirts colored the blue now associated with the Water Guardians, the activist group that gathered 16,000 signatures — 3,000 more than necessary — in a few weeks to qualify the ban for the ballot. For the first time, the group was formally supported by the area’s major environmental players, including the Sierra Club and the Community Environmental Council (CEC). The Environmental Defense Center (EDC) — which has worked in the past with the Bay Area–based law firm Shute, Mihaly & Weinberger, whose attorney Rachel Hooper authored the ordinance — also jumped on board and will co-represent the group. But the environmentalists face a long road to November against the oil industry and its employees, who urged the supervisors to consider the measure’s consequences. The bill’s passage would jeopardize existing jobs and kill future jobs in an already money-strapped North County, and it would threaten millions of dollars in property tax revenues for the entire county, they cautioned. They repeatedly reminded the board that hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, hasn’t occurred in Santa Barbara in years thanks to the stricter regulations enacted by the supervisors in 2011, which now require all fracking applications to go through the County Planning Commission no matter their size or scope. And, opponents continued, a recently passed state law titled Senate Bill  would further monitor the practice starting in 2015. (A draft of the rules under SB , which only the governor’s office can now change, was released on June 17; environmental groups said it includes far too many loopholes.) Bob Poole, the public and government affairs manager for Santa Maria Energy, attended Friday’s hearing and said the Water Guardians were waging a “misinformation

campaign” to “foment fear and hysteria.” Santa Maria Energy — which pumped more than $60,000 into county races in June — will be joining “industry all across the state,” Poole said, in fighting a likely million-dollar war over this ban. Of the Water Guardians, Poole said, “They’ve got their work cut out for them.” The ordinance would prohibit enhanced extraction methods — most notably fracking, cyclic steaming, and acidizing — but not affect existing projects. The measure’s stipulation that certain future projects could qualify for exemptions presents some issues, many said Friday, as the county would have to deal with those on a case-by-case basis; similar concerns abounded about vested rights. How well-maintenance techniques — which involve routinely treating wells with chemicals to rid them of build-up — would be interpreted under the ordinance also remains fuzzy. According to a presentation from staff, Santa Barbara County’s 1,167 active onshore oil wells produced 4.3 million barrels of oil in 2013, bringing in $16.4 million in property taxes for schools, County Fire, special districts, and the county as a whole. The industry accounts for about 1,950 positions out of the approximately 183,400 jobs countywide — or about one percent of the county’s workforce. The initiative’s economic effects — including opportunities for new business — likely wouldn’t be felt immediately and would depend on the number of projects exempted as well as factors dictated by basic supply and demand. A fiscal-impact statement, likely to also address how increasing funding for county park, building, and road maintenance would be affected by possible diminished revenues, will come in August. While most of the area’s oil wells use traditional drilling, the industry is turning more and more to cyclic steaming, a method used in the county for about 20 years that is more “carbon intensive” than conventional techniques, said Kevin Drude, deputy director of the county’s energy division. Most of the 903 wells coming down his department’s pipeline have proposed that method but haven’t proposed to use pota■ ble water in their operations.

Another Day, Another Dog

JACKALS IN HEAT: You can’t really blame Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld for every-

thing; it just seems that way. For those whose mental health depends on amnesia and indifference, Cheney and Rumsfeld were the Batman and Robin of arrogance and deceit, the one-two punch of murder and mayhem during the eight years George W. Bush usurped the American throne. Since then, Bush has pulled one of the greatest disappearing acts of all time. By contrast, Cheney — the former vice president — and Rumsfeld — über secretary of defense — are still very much on the prowl, insisting in the face of overwhelming evidence they were right. About everything. But even if they skulked out of town, their bloody footprints would have followed them. Let’s start with the obvious. If it weren’t for Cheney — so radioactively effluvial with his contempt for open government — Santa Barbara’s county supervisors would never have been forced to put a countywide fracking ban on the November ballot. Yes, fracking has become the trendy cause du jour.Yes, right-wing gas bag Andy Caldwell is correct, the dubiously dubbed “Water Guardians” — (Do they wear capes and Lycra underpants?) — are, in fact, part of global conspiracy to stop fracking. That no fracking is now taking place in Santa Barbara County — or ever will — is totally beside the point. The real point is that when a group of nobodies comes out of nowhere to collect 20,000 signatures — despite serious resistance from the

South Coast’s enviro establishment — in less than one month, one has to admit a raw nerve has been struck. The Halliburton Company — for which Cheney worked — may have invented fracking in 1940, but it was Cheney who really put the technology on the map. He made it scary. That’s because fracking involves the injection of hot steam (500 degrees) coupled with an alphabet soup of nasty chemicals — hundreds of feet under the earth’s surface to dislodge otherwise reluctant hydrocarbon molecules needed for the mass production of, among other thing, Lycra underpants. In 2001, Cheney began meeting secretly with executives representing the oil, gas, coal, and nuclear industries to hammer out a national energy policy to their liking. Four years later, the 2005 Energy Policy Act was hatched. In it, Cheney had inserted what’s known as “the Halliburton loophole,” which exempted fracking from the federal oversight and regulation to which it had hitherto been subjected under the terms of the Safe Drinking Water Act. Since then, vast fortunes have been made, and if frack-friendly states like Oklahoma have experienced a massive increase in number of earthquakes — from three to 200 a year since 2008 — that, no doubt, is merely coincidental. This Sunday, when Vandenberg Air Force Base launches yet another interceptor rocket equipped with a strap-on kill missile into space as part of a $40 billion missile defense program, we’ll have effervescently arrogant Donald Rumsfeld to thank. The test is to see if

the kill vehicle can collide with a target missile launched from 5,000 miles away while traveling at a speed of about 4 miles a second. If we succeed, we can blast anything out of the sky the North Koreans might lob our way. The Ronald Reagan White House spent $30 billion studying the idea — dubbed Star Wars — but it never got off the drawing boards. But Rumsfeld helped resurrect it during the Reign of W. According to Los Angeles Times reporter David Willman, Rumsfeld helped the Missile Defense program bypass all the Pentagon’s well-established procurement rules designed to protect the American taxpayer from dingbat ideas. In so doing, he secured the billions needed to transform a Buck Rogers fantasy and declare it fully “operational.” As a result, 30 American missile silos are now occupied with missile defense interceptor rockets capable of carrying the strap-ons into space. Four are at Vandenberg. But declaring something “operational” is a far cry from working the kinks out. The author of a recent National Academy of Sciences report termed the results nothing less than “abysmal.” Of the 16 tests to date, eight have failed. In two, the interceptors couldn’t get out of the silos. It’s getting worse, not better. Of the last eight, five failed. Of the last three, all failed. Each test costs $200 million. We’d probably inflict more damage just dropping that money on North Korea. Apparently whatever afflicted Rumsfeld is contagious. President Obama’s defense secretary, Chuck Hagel, has concluded that if 30 unreliable inter-

ceptor rockets aren’t sufficient, we need to spend

even more money on the same bad idea. To that end, he has vowed to increase the fleet size from 30 to 44. Last but not least, there’s the possibility of yet another military engagement in Iraq. Third time’s the charm? Not to belabor the obvious, but Cheney and Rumsfeld had their fingerprints all over War I (1990), and in the wake of 9/11, they told whatever lies they deemed necessary to stampede a grief-stricken nation into War II. Now I learn that ISIS was not an Egyptian mother goddess but instead a scourge of Sunni fundamentalist warriors so hardcore even AlQaeda kicked them out. Naturally, the United States helped train ISIS in hopes of destabilizing Syrian dictator Assad. ISIS, it turns out, has its own agenda: to topple both Syria and Iraq. Last week, 30,000 U.S-trained Iraqi soldiers fled before ISIS’s advance on the city of Mosul, as did 500,000 civilians. The conquering army reportedly made themselves at home, executing 1,700 Shia. This week, the Shia returned the favor, executing 44 Sunni. Hey, didn’t we just send one million U.S. troops to Iraq for eight years to stabilize the joint? Compared to the 500,000 people who prematurely met their makers in that war, the United States got off easy. But try telling that to the families of the 4,500 killed or the 32,000 wounded. Thank you for your service, but can we get a refund on the $1.7 trillion we spent in Iraq? No? I’m sure Dick and Don are good for it. Just check their money for blood stains. Makes — Nick Welsh the bills stick together.

I don’t know how to influence your staff, but I do know that this advertising unfairly and negatively portrays women as objects, rather than people. Why do you continue to do that? Aren’t there other options? — C.J. Iverson, S.B.

Couth YUTs

our article “Curbing Young Urban Travelers” [independent.com/news] got it all wrong. I have been on the road for 18 years by choice, not consequences. Most travelers hold to strict codes of behavior and are selfregulating. However, homebums are the opposite. Like your Jeremy — claiming to be hungry day after day, all the while there is overabundant free food here, showers, laundry, free clothes, you name it — homebums have no standards, expect everything, even respect. “I’ve been here for 40 years,” I overheard one homebum mutter proudly as he butted into a food line. I understand that this is a drag on any city, a full-grown “man,” been here for 40 years on your dime alone. Hasn’t picked up a piece of litter but made plenty of it. These are the incontinent, alcoholic types that don’t have control of their own bladders and bowels. I personally have no issue nding and using a public restroom, eating at normal times, going to bed early, rising early, etc. I do not panhandle. I seek jobs on craigslist. I am personable and respectful and make real friends and connections wherever I may be. YUTs [young urban travelers], as you put it, usually have ways and means, travel, have proper camping gear and a thirst for new experiences and knowledge, and they often move on in a relatively short time. I have been here for six weeks and had a rental car reserved in three. I have roughly spent $2,000 in Santa Barbara, and I do plan to return. It’s a nice town. YUTs are the very spice of life that makes a place special or not, and homebums are the source of misplaced bodily functions and the blights — Jason Rogers, S.B. that they are.

Micheltorena Freeway

SYSTEMS

I

’ve lived at the intersection of Laguna and Micheltorena streets, a two-way stop, for 28 years now. My neighbor calls Micheltorena a “freeway.” Vehicles coming down from the Riviera have the right-of-way, and woe be to those who venture across at Laguna. It’s a rare day I don’t hear the blast of a horn from some irate motorist telling a Laguna motorist to give way. The scariest times are when the horns are accompanied by the screeching of brakes. Impatient drivers don’t seem to realize how often children on bicycles ride down Laguna Street’s hill … wheee! This afternoon it happened. I didn’t see it. I heard the squeal of brakes … then a sickening thud … then the screams of a child. A young woman had driven up Micheltorena as young boys on bicycles were riding down Laguna. The windshield of the woman’s car was smashed. One of the bicycles was in pieces. Two boys were on the pavement. Both were taken away by ambulance. Dear City of Santa Barbara: Will it take the death of a child to make this intersection a four-way stop? — Stephenie Sedgwick Chandler, S.B.

s if we pool swimmers don’t have enough concerns with chlorine, muriatic acid, and cyanuric acid (two being known carcinogens). Now there is a new chemical being tossed into some local pools, and if you don’t ask, they won’t tell. It goes by the commercial name Cover Free, and it retains pool heat and cuts down on evaporation. Our Stage  drought had made this product appealing to some pool managers. However, its spec sheet lists 10 possible short-term side effects (like those of the three other chems): skin and eye irritation, respiratory inflammation, etc. The only thing is, this product has not been properly tested. What may be long-term health effects for swimmers? If this substance is innocuous, why are some Cover Free pools being so hush-hush? If you are a pool swimmer with concerns, consult your club manager and voice them. — Michele Porter, Carpinteria

Was He Really the Murderer?

CHOIR GIRL KILLED: When I was a young

reporter covering the Santa Barbara courts, I heard sheriff ’s deputies talk about “the Kirkes Case.” It was an old one, and I was too busy covering new crimes to dig into it. A girl was murdered back in the 1940s, I gathered, and apparently there was a problem with the case — a big one. I forgot about it until the other night, up at the Circle Bar B Guest Ranch Dinner Theatre, when I ran into Barry Liker, son of the late district attorney David Liker. He brought up the Kirkes case, we chatted, and a few days later he dropped off three 1951 true-crime tabloids and Public Justice: A History of the Santa Barbara County District Attorney’s Office, -. The three tabloids, Daring Detective, True Detective, and Official Detective, with garish covers, priced at 25 cents, all told pretty much the same story. It was a quiet evening in Carpinteria on Friday, August 28, 1942, when Margaret Senteney, 20, left home for the short walk to her regular job, spending the night with an aged woman who needed company. But an hour or so later, the woman contacted Margaret’s parents. “Where’s Margaret?” Margaret hadn’t arrived, and a frenzied search produced no sign of her. She was a quiet girl who sang in the church choir and not one to run off to a party or with a boyfriend.

Undersheriff John (“Jack”) Ross, after sending out radio and Teletype bulletins, enlisted the help of CHP officer Leonard Kirkes, who lived in Carpinteria and knew the territory. Kirkes joined the search and said he knew Margaret, who’d been a babysitter for his son. Kirkes, a married man, was the son of a local minister and had served in the Marines. The next day, while volunteers gathered for a search party, word came that Margaret’s body had been found in the hills, on a small road off Toro Canyon Road, property owned by famed conductor Leopold Stokowski. When Ross said he was unsure how to get there, Kirkes spoke up. He knew exactly where it was. “I’ll lead the way, and you can follow.” They found Margaret’s body, clad in a red dress. She had been strangled. Nearby, Ross noticed a set of footprints, apparently those of a large man. He also noticed tire tracks with a “squeege” tread. Leaving Kirkes to guard the site, Ross left to fetch the coroner and a technician, planning to make plaster casts of the footprints and tire tracks. Upon his return, he found Kirkes wandering around the site, obliterating the footprints. Ross was outraged but chalked it off to the highway patrolman’s inexperience. Kirkes was also seen walking over the tire tracks after being warned not to. Investigators noticed marks on the girl’s leg and foot, apparently from a rubber floor mat, possibly meaning that she’d been in the trunk

of an auto. Then they got a tip: A gray sedan, perhaps a 1939 model, had been seen near the remote site the day after Margaret disappeared. Then Ross learned that Kirkes had been going around town, trying to establish an alibi for the time the girl went missing. And Kirkes owned a gray 1939 Ford coupe, a model with a similar mat. Then they learned that Kirkes was having his car painted green, including the trunk area, and said he threw away the mat. Authorities were convinced that Kirkes killed the girl after she resisted his advances and threatened to tell his wife. But the case was circumstantial, and no charges were filed.

Cynthia Hollister Nagel // – //

Cynthia Hollister Nagel, affectionately known as Cinnie, died at the age of  at her home on June , . She left us peacefully in her sleep, having been surrounded by her children and her beloved dog. She was born on September , , in San Francisco, California, to John James Hollister Jr. of Santa Barbara, California, and Cynthia Boyd Hollister of San Francisco, California. She spent her earliest years growing up on the Hollister Ranch in Gaviota, California, with her younger brother, John James “J.J.” Hollister III, and many cousins. At the age of  she and her brother and parents moved to the Winchester Canyon in Goleta. Cinnie’s early education was in a one-room school house on the Hollister Ranch, with her brother and the other children living on the ranch. She attended, with her beloved cousin Elizabeth, Katherine Branson’s School for Girls in San Rafael, California, as had her mother. She also attended Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. Cinnie was an avid horsewoman, having been put on a horse before she could walk. She continued to ride and keep a horse into her s. Her earliest passions as a young woman were horse and livestock related, with cultural trips to San Francisco to stay with her mother’s family and friends. The early California ranch culture was part of her makeup and it was during one of these ranching gatherings that she was introduced to her first husband, George Allen Masek, of St. Louis, Missouri, and Tucson, Arizona. In  she married George and together they had two children: George Allen Masek, Jr. and Cynthia Hollister ‘Holly’ Masek Stahl. Initially they lived in

Arizona, where Cinnie developed a passion for American Indian Artifacts and made repeated trips to the Navajo Indian Reservations in Northern Arizona. The family moved back to the Winchester Canyon in the early s, where she was able to nurture and share with her young children her love of the outdoors, horses, dogs and animals in general. In , she married Dr. Gunther Peter Nagel and they established a beautiful home in Montecito, California, and later retired to Los Olivos, in the Santa Ynez Valley in the late s. Peter brought four children to their life together from his previous marriage to Leinie Shilling: Peter, Victoria, Sophie and Phoebie. Cinnie was happiest outdoors with her horses and dogs, however she also appreciated the arts as experienced in San Francisco. She was a true outdoors woman having been taught fly fishing and bird shooting at an early age by her father, being exposed to the mountains by her mother and uncle, becoming proficient in both English and Western horsemanship, and following a lifelong tradition of appreciating horses and ranching. She was able to accomplish the athletic achievements of Endurance Riding in Santa Barbara County and of Fox Hunting in Ireland. She was an active member of the Sage Hens and the Fillies, both riding groups in the Santa Ynez Valley. She and Peter experienced many years together of backpacking and fishing in the Wind River Range of Wyoming, bird shooting in California and Mexico, and sport fishing in the Tropics and the Pacific. In the s, Cinnie developed a love of the Texas Longhorn Cattle breed and became instrumental in growing the breed in California. She traveled, with her Longhorns, all over the states of California and Nevada, learning and educating others to the merits of her beloved cattle. Cinnie is survived by her brother, J.J. Hollister, of Santa Barbara; her children, George Allen Masek (Ellie) of Marana, Arizona, and Holly Stahl (Jim) of Delray Beach, Florida; and her grandson, Jack Stahl. Private services will be held. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her honor to the Arroyo Hondo Preserve or a Humane Society of your choice. Arrangements by Welch-Ryce-Haider.

Holly Brooks was born on December , , and grew up in Pacific Palisades, California. She lived in Santa Barbara for many years, working with her stellar eye for fashion and decor. Over the last decade, Holly lived in the Santa Ynez Valley with the love of her life, Blair Pence. She was everyone’s all-or-nothing girl, committed to living life to the fullest. Holly was the ultimate hostess — always making sure that each person was having a good time. With her, you felt like the only person in the room. Holly’s aptitude for entertaining and aesthetics was one of her many special talents. She could add just the right flair to any celebration. She loved galloping on horses, cooking for her friends, and dancing to classic R&B and soul music with martini in hand. Holly also enjoyed soaking up sun in her bikini, whether at the beach in S.B. or on the dock of her pond. Holly smiled and laughed right up to the end. She died on Saturday, June , and is survived by Dale Brooks, Dalena Hogan, Guy Brooks, Blair Pence, and Devin Pence.

// – //

Thomas E. Watson died June , , at his home at Vista del Monte, at the age of . He was born in Chicago on January , , to Fred G. and Irene Meerschaut Watson. He was raised there and Oak Lawn, Illinois. He earned an associate’s degree from Wilson Junior College and worked in the lab at the Armour Company in Chicago, where he met and married his wife, Mary, in . He later worked at United States Standard in Woodworth, WI. Following World War II, he moved with his family to California. He loved the beauty of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architecture and a highlight of his life was the day he spent with him at his design studio. In California, he gave Edgar Tafel, Frank Lloyd Wright’s first apprentice, his first commission to design a house remodel in LaCanada, and Tom spent almost five years building it himself. In , he joined the pharmaceutical company Smith-Dorsey as a detail man, rapidly becoming district manager in northern California. He was promoted to the head office in Lincoln, Nebraska, with responsibilities in marketing. While there, he co-invented Triaminic. In , he joined Bristol Laboratories in New York City, soon becoming Vice President, with responsibilities for all marketing activities as a member of the company’s senior management team. In , he bought Kahlenberg Laboratories, in Sarasota, Florida. He ran the company as President, focusing on marketing and package design until his retirement in  to care for his wife.

Tom had a lifelong interest in sailing, building a small wooden sailboat from a kit in the living room of the family’s home one Nebraska winter. In New York, he bought a fiberglass boat and spent many happy days sailing on Long Island Sound and in Sarasota Bay. He built a recumbent bicycle from plywood which actually worked(!) and with a friend spent many long and happy hours trying to build a hydrogen engine, fortunately not blowing himself up in the process(!) Another lifelong enthusiasm was science. Most recently he was fascinated by the Google car. He enjoyed many hours of reading and listening to classical radio. He is predeceased by his wife of  years, Mary N.

LAURA INKS BODINE

FUNK ZONE FINALE

Solstice Weekend Sees the Last New Murals Go Up on Mason Street t’s hard to imagine today, given the explosive development the area has seen recently, but just five years ago Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone was still something of a no-man’s land, and property owners there were battling to manage urban blight rather than handle hipster foot traffic. At that time, the low-slung building at the corner of Mason and Helena streets, which will soon be demolished to make way for the La Entrada Hotel project, was an eyesore, afflicted with chronic broken windows and maintained with vigorous coats of white paint that ordinarily only lasted until the next graffiti artist rolled up and tagged it again. This was the situation back in 2009 when Laura Inks, now Laura Inks Bodine, a tireless arts activist and community organizer, first encountered Ray Wicken, an executive with the investment group Mountain Funding. Wicken was in Santa Barbara checking on some distressed property that Mountain Funding had just acquired, and he was enjoying a beverage at the Boathouse restaurant, which at that time was the closest watering hole to Mason and Helena. Inks Bodine had been introduced to the Funk Zone by her artist husband, Clay Bodine, who had a studio at Mason and Helena. When she overheard Wicken’s conversation, she quickly introduced herself as someone who could help Mountain Funding keep the walls and windows of their building in better shape. Thus began an iconic chapter in Santa Barbara’s public art history. For five years now, the Artists Making a Street Scene (AMASS) project has been offering independent creative people a very visible public canvas on which to present their work. Approximately every four months, the large horizontal mural spaces on the exterior wall along Mason Street “turn over,” meaning that a new set of artists is notified that their chance to work there has come. The turnover is a process that involves, as does the whole AMASS project, the personal touch of Laura Inks Bodine. Even though she’s now living in

I

Cuenca, Ecuador, Inks Bodine has continued to coordinate these switches by email and on Facebook. This weekend, beginning at 4 p.m. on Friday and lasting until the light fades on Sunday evening, the AMASS project will be having its last hurrah. According to the sources at the construction company handling the project, the building, which has long been slated for demolition, will finally be knocked down at the end of this month. In the meantime, Inks Bodine will be back in town to rally the artists of AMASS for one more round of street painting. In preparation for the event, she has procured materials and prepared the site, but she’s also collected the names of all the artists who have painted murals there since the project began. Although these murals and others elsewhere in the neighborhood have become perhaps the most recognizable symbol of the new creative scene that’s arisen in the Funk Zone, the AMASS project was never defined by official grants or formal contracts. This may be part of the reason it’s been such a success, given all the restrictions that more formal arrangements typically involve. While Inks Bodine characterizes the AMASS mural gallery as a “renegade experiment,” the impact on the 150 artists whose work has been shown there has been quite tangible, especially if you factor in the magnifying and broadcasting effects of social media. From the beginning, AMASS has enjoyed serious popularity on Facebook, Instagram, and Tumblr, where street art now routinely reaches a global audience. From Wallace Piatt’s oft-photographed and Roy Lichtenstein–inspired “LOOK, look what you’ve done to State Street” piece and onward, the Funk Zone has become the place to go for people looking to see something fresh on the streets of Santa Barbara. In the process, it has also become the spot where people go to have their picture taken hanging out on the coolest block in town. Whether

by Charle

n

it’s two high school students walking over from Hot Spots or a professional photographer’s team and a professional model arriving from LAX, street art has given pictureperfect Santa Barbara a jolt of social-media buzz. The S.B. street art scene spawned its first star in David Flores, who now routinely captures commissions that his pal Shepard Fairey would envy. Flores got his start as an artist hanging around at the Church of Skatan on Gutierrez Street, where he threw up some of his earliest big wall pieces, including the giant skateboarding Max from Where the Wild Things Are that got him noticed internationally. Today he’s constantly on the move, creating huge images for buildings in places like Tokyo. For an artist like Flores, what’s happening in the Funk Zone works better than a traditional gallery because it’s on the street and thus readily available for transmission by anyone with a camera or phone. Although inevitably some will see the demolition of the building and the close of this chapter of AMASS as a dead end for art in the Funk Zone, as long as street artists keep finding walls in the area to paint, the legacy will continue. “The Funk Zone scene is presently frenetic, rife in promises kept and unkept,” said Alan Macy, a founding member of the Fishbon collective and a longtime observer of the culture that bubbles up between the train tracks and Cabrillo. What, if anything, the La Entrada project will do to keep this outdoor gallery going remains to be seen. But for Laura Inks Bodine and AMASS, the recognition keeps coming. As Santa Barbara County Arts commissioner Ginny Brush put it, “The AMASS Gallery is the brainchild of Laura Inks … . It has served as a model showcasing how public art and greater community engagement can combat blight and foster greater community pride. The AMASS Gallery has served as a model and a catalyst for the city’s recent increased support for temporary public art murals.” Now let’s spend this weekend painting and making the street scene one more time. ■ june 19, 2014

ARCADE FIRE Take a look at the itinerary for Arcade Fire’s current tour, and you’ll notice immediately: One of these things is not like the other. Sandwiched in between a two-night run at L.A.’s 17,500-capacity Forum and a stint at the 27,000-seat Gorge Amphitheatre is a stop at our beloved little Santa Barbara Bowl, where the max cap is about 4,500 people. But intimacy is hardly the only draw here. For this tour, the band has gone to great lengths to create a vibe that mirrors the kinetic groove of their latest output, last year’s stunning double disc Reflektor. As for the setup, Arcade Fire has enlisted some of the best in the biz to help make the stadiums they’re playing feel like clubs. The lighting is elaborate and low hanging, and no confetti morsel is

spared. Fans are also encouraged to come in costume — and they do, in droves. Of course, all this is not to say that the music takes a backseat to the theatrics. As anyone who has seen Arcade Fire live will tell you, this is a band that demands to be witnessed in the flesh. Onstage, they balance technical proficiency with a loose-canon energy that’s almost overpowering when it peaks.“It’s like watching a tightrope walker who’s had a few scotches,” jokes frontman Win Butler of the show, and we can’t help but agree. The only difference? We’ve yet to see Arcade Fire lose its footing. At the Santa Barbara Bowl, Monday, August 4. Call 962-7411 or visit sbbowl.com. — Aly Comingore

Congratulations

EIGHTH BLACKBIRD

to Antioch University Santa Barbara Class of 2014!

Antioch University Santa Barbara is pleased to

recognize this year’s passionate, committed graduates, each of whom is on track to make a meaningful difference through a wide range of careers in psychology, education, business, non-profit, the environment, and other fields.

The chamber music group eighth blackbird may be stingy with the capital letters, but they are extremely generous when it comes to bringing big names into the classical concert hall. The sextet will give a Mosher Guest Artist recital on Thursday, June 26, at the Music Academy of the West and features a four-song suite called Murder Ballades, which was written for them by Bryce Dessner, the composer who also happens to play guitar in a little band called The National. Dessner, who has a master’s degree in music from Yale, has become one of the most in-demand contemporary composers, and he just released a CD featuring his music played by the Copenhagen Philharmonic, along with a piece by fellow classical composer rock star Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead fame. Yes, you will still get all the Beethoven you can handle from the Music Academy this summer (for Beethoven’s Fifth, see the listings below), but in the meantime, it’s an exciting moment in music history as the boundaries between formerly isolated musical worlds continue to bend and vanish before our eyes and ears. At the Music Academy of the West’s Hahn Hall, Thursday, June 26. Call 969-4726 or visit musicacademy.org. — CD

2014 Excellence in Teaching Award We are also pleased to honor faculty member Frank Price Rust III, PhD with Antioch University Santa Barbara’s 2014 Excellence in Teaching Award.

Three days, two stages, and one epic parade: Welcome to Solstice 2014. The annual celebration of all things summer takes place this Friday-Sunday, June 20-22, in and around Alameda Park, and like years past, it’s boasting a worldly and eclectic mix of dance hailing from all corners of the Santa Barbara community. On Friday, the festival’s main stage plays host to a Macedonian folk group, hip-hop from Santa Barbara Dance Arts students, and a “mermaid tribe” called Iridescence. But Solstice goers know that Saturday’s parade is where the real action is. This year’s festival’s theme is “Games,” and Santa Barbara’s dance stars are coming ready to play. Participating groups include longtime parade staples Santa Barbara Samba, Sambahia, La Bohème Dance Company, and Panzumo, as well as newcomers Samba Conmigo. For dance aficionados and casual revelers, it’s

easily the most warm, welcoming, carefree arts event of the year. It’s also the only time all year when dancing in the streets is not only encouraged but city sanctioned. At Alameda Park and throughout Downtown Santa Barbara, Friday-Sunday, June 20-22. Visit solstice parade.com. — AC

If the torrid heat of recent weeks and the lack of rain have you worried about wildfire, you’re not alone. A novel community-funded Indiegogo campaign — featuring the personable Henry the Goat — hopes to reduce the threat of wildfire from the nearby foothills by grazing herds of goats on the fire fuels growing there. Henry’s owners, Lorraine Argo and Ian Newsam of Brush Goats 4 Hire in Buellton, have collaborated with city, county, Montecito, and Summerland/Carpinteria fire agencies to identify 30 acres that goats could thin to protect populated areas. “The more money raised, the more acres cleared,” said Argo of crowdsourcing $50,000 by July 5. “We want this campaign to engage the community from the ocean to our mountains.” Go to bg4h.com to pitch in (and receive some fun perks, too). — Jean Yamamura

Kardboard Kayaking Race

The Santa Barbara Maritime Museum, in collaboration with Semana Nautica, is hosting its annual Kardboard Kayak Races on Saturday, July 12, Noon-3 p.m. Teams of up to four will get two sheets of cardboard, one roll of tape, a marker, a utility knife, a yardstick, and one hour to build a completely functioning kayak. After creating their watercraft, each team must paddle out to a buoy and back — hopefully without sinking. There are two different challenges: the Family Fun heat and the Paddling Pros heat. The winners from each heat will win prizes. The event takes place at West Beach across from Sambo’s Restaurant and East of Condor Express, which are both sponsors of the race. The number of teams for the race is limited; to register, call 962-8408 x115 or visit sbmm.org. — MK

Crowdsourcing

Looking to reduce waste and to feed her plants simultaneously, Cindy Gutierrez created a completely eco-friendly fertilizer derived from the way that her mother and grandfather used to garden. Gutierrez developed Fertile Grounds, a fertilizer that is made from emulsified coffee grounds that are liquefied and free of all chemicals. She created her product because she knew that many people already fertilize with coffee grounds but wanted to make it easier and cleaner for them. She took her idea to the Enterprise Launch class offered by the Scheinfeld Center at SBCC, won the 2013 Scheinfeld Center New Venture Challenge, and used the $4,000 prize money to start her company. “Over a billion pounds of coffee grounds are dumped into landfills in America,” said Gutierrez, who utilizes grounds from area coffee shops. She hopes to cut down the amount of waste by recycling the grounds in a biodegradable way. Gutierrez added that coffee grounds are especially good for fertilizer because they are naturally acidic, lowering the pH level of soil, which is ideal for all types of plants. While many fertilizers have a foul scent, Fertile Grounds smells like coffee, so Gutierrez encourages people to use it for indoor plants. She says that her fertilizer is especially helpful for flowering plants and vegetable plant and is also a good soil additive. Fertile Grounds can currently be found at Whole Foods. — Mckinley Krongaus

From the

Driver’s Seat

H

My son Stone, 15, wrote my column again this week.

ey again. It’s me, Stone. You may remember me from last summer, when I ranted about parental oppression. Well, I’m back, with something else I need to get off my chest. This time it’s about the surprising, brand-new world of

driving. When I passed the driver’s test and got my permit back in April, the training taught me to be a very nice, friendly, rule-abiding driver (always walk around the car and inspect it before driving, signal 100 feet before the turn, etc.). But when I backed out of my driveway and entered into the real world of driving, I was like a small, fluffy bunny in a pit of angry, rabid Rottweilers. The polite world of driver’s ed was ripped away to reveal a world of people cutting off other people and not using their turn signals — and full of, ahem, parental help: “STONE, ACCELERATE, YOU NEED TO ACCELERATE!” Of course, I haven’t let all this affect my driving. I still drive slowly and carefully, and the incessant honking around me from those Porsche SUVs driven by soccer moms who need to get to their jewelry-making class is drowned out by the song “Let It Go,” which is on indefinite repeat (Yes, I am the only male on the planet who insanely loves Frozen). I am determined not to stoop to the level of other Santa Barbara drivers. As Queen Elsa says, “Don’t let them in, don’t let them see. Be the good girl you always have to be.” Now, it’s okay for me to be a bad driver because I’ve only been driving for four months. I have this tendency to always go the wrong direction in parking lots, and I litby Stone erally can’t parallel park at all. But at least I go the correct speed on the freeway and stop at most yellow lights. email: starshine@roshell.com Still, as the apparent founder of the new “Stop Moronic Drivers” movement, I’ve come up with some great ways to decrease the craziness of all the reckless drivers out there. On a serious note, the reason all this makes me mad is because people learn by example. If you’re constantly being negligent on the road, my generation sees that and will end up just like yours — and we can’t have that, can we? So here are some ground rules: First of all, if you don’t use your turn signal, I suggest federal prison for 25 years. Without parole. Seriously, I don’t see what’s so hard about moving your hand in a downward motion to flick the lever when you turn; you do it every time you refresh your Facebook news feed! If you cut someone off, it’s a $1,000 fine and anger management classes because cutting people off is like putting your sock in someone’s mouth right after the gym: It doesn’t feel good, and it’s just not cool. Also, $500 extra if you cut someone off in a pickup truck because if you’re gonna cut someone off, at least be original. So the next time you get out on the road and think about almost running a red light, or come close to hitting a pedestrian — just don’t. Unless your wife is having a baby, or you’re bleeding profusely out of your eyes, you really should just stop. Well, that’s all for this summer, folks. Maybe I’ll see you out on the road; just look for a Nissan Leaf blasting the Frozen soundtrack and going the wrong way in the parking lot. Hopefully, with time, I’ll get better — and so will our driving community. Together, we can roll toward a better future on the roads. As Queen Elsa sang in the best movie ever, “I’m never going back. The past is in the past.”

World Cup Mania Fans Go Wild When the U.S. Defeats Ghana

T

PAUL WELLMAN PHOTOS

by John Zant

here are people who love soccer, people who hate soccer, and people who are inclined to shrug their shoulders and dismiss soccer. Many in that last group suspended their apathy, for the next week anyway, after the stunning 2-1 victory by the U.S. over Ghana on Monday in the opening round of the World Cup. Winning has a powerful influence on the American psyche, especially when it is accomplished in dramatic fashion. Witness the conversion of Los Angeles into a hockey town, home of the Stanley Cup, by the never-saydie Kings. Chants of “U-S-A! U-S-A!” were heard up and down State Street after reserve defender John Brooks became a hero with his 86th-minute header — off a corner kick from another sub, Graham Zusi — that defeated Ghana. It assured that the U.S. will be in contention to advance in the tournament through the remainder of its “Group of Death” matches — versus Portugal on Sunday, June 22, and Germany on Thursday, June 26. That should keep the interest in Brazil’s soccer fest at a high level, as American chauvinists join forces with international football aficionados. Here is one man’s impression of the first five days of this World Cup.

DAY ONE: It was standing-room-only at the Brasil Arts Café on State Street, and the Press

Room on Ortega Street also was packed before the opener

between Brazil and Croatia. Fans went across the street to Dargan’s and into other hangouts on lower State, a robust turnout on a Thursday afternoon. The Brazilians, the favorites to win the Cup, had to overcome a 1-0 deficit. Neymar’s second goal, on a penalty kick, broke the 1-1 tie after Fred vied for an Academy Award by taking a dive — an exasperating ploy that the referee should not have rewarded. It was Oscar himself who redeemed Brazil somewhat with an excellent goal to cap a 3-1 victory.

DAY TWO: There was more poor officiating in the Fridaymorning match, as two apparent goals by Mexico were denied by bogus offside calls. Mexico got a late score that counted for a well-deserved 1-0 win over Cameroon. The Netherlands did this half-Dutch observer proud by pounding Spain, the reigning world and European champion, 5-1. Robin van Persie’s flying header was a thing of beauty, and Arjen Robben ran circles around the Spaniards before unleashing his lethal left-footed shots. Chile was impressive in a win over the Socceroos of Australia. DAY THREE: Rosy Baez, seated in the front row of the

Arlington Theatre, was disappointed by Colombia’s 3-0 win over Greece.“I love Greek men,” she said. She got a good look at them; they were bigger than life in high definition on the wide screen. There were only 15 others in the audience, as word had just gotten out that the Arlington would show — for free — all the 9 a.m. World Cup matches. Uruguay became the first South American team to suffer a setback against surprising Costa Rica, boosting the hopes of both Italy and England to survive in their group. Italy, which usually gets off to a slow start in World Cups, got the edge on England, which started even more slowly. In the Old Kings Road pub downtown, you couldn’t move without rubbing up against an English fan. I took in the second half at Arnoldi’s Café. After Mario

Balotelli’s header gave Italy a 2-1 victory, Bernardo De Albergaria, a native of Rome, treated his wife and 11-year-old twins, Dario and Gisella, to a feast of tiramisu.

DAY FOUR: Soccer has the advan-

THE THRILL OF VICTORY: Patrons at Brasil Arts Café (pictured) on State Street jumped to their feet with elation after the U.S. soccer team beat its old adversary, Ghana. It assured that the U.S. will be in contention to advance in the tournament through the remainder of its “Group of Death” matches versus Portugal on Sunday and Germany on Thursday. (Bottom) Germany defeated Portugal on Day Five of the World Cup.

tage rule, which means that if the referee sees a foul, he should not blow his whistle and halt the play if the offended team has a chance to score. With time running out in the deadlocked Switzerland-Ecuador match, the referee got it right when he let a Swiss attacker recover his momentum after nearly being upended by a tackle at midfield. The result was a goal by Switzerland with just seconds to spare for a 2-1 victory. There was no drama in France’s 3-0 victory over Honduras. The dazzling Lionel Messi got Argentina off on the right foot with the winning goal against Bosnia-Herzegovina.

DAY FIVE: Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo — last seen try-

ing to prove his abs were as impressive as Brandi Chastain’s after he led Real Madrid to the European Champions League title — has a movie-star image. Germany was determined to douse Ronaldo’s flamboyance with power and precision. As the match unfolded at the Arlington, a tear came to my eye. In the crawl across the screen was the news that Tony Gwynn had died. My mind went back almost 40 years, when I saw him playing point guard for a great Long Beach Poly basketball team against Santa Barbara High in the CIF play-offs. Later, Gwynn played the point for San Diego State against UCSB. He was a pleasure to watch then — even more so, of course, when he was spraying hits all over the baseball field in a Hall of Fame career. His death at 54 should lead young ballplayers to ponder the peril of chewing tobacco. As stars flicker out, new ones grow bright in the never-

ending cycle of sports. At the World Cup, the morning belonged to Thomas Müeller, the German striker who scored three times in a 4-0 thrashing of Portugal. Ronaldo had better luck kicking the ball into the stands — where it landed in the arms of a comely fan — than at the German defense. Portugal lost its defender Pepe for the U.S. match when he was red-carded for his ungracious head-butt of Mueller. The next match of the day was the lackluster 0-0 draw between Nigeria and Iran. I joined a patriotic crowd at the Santa Barbara Brewing Company lounge, with its banks of TVs, for the U.S.-Ghana match. Clint Dempsey’s lightning strike in the first 30 seconds had a galvanizing effect. Soccer purists would point out that the skillful Ghanaians outplayed the U.S., but somehow our boys survived for 100 tense minutes — five extra minutes at the end of the first half (okay, there were injuries) and five more (what the hell?) at the end of the second half, when the 2-1 lead seemed ever so precarious because Ghana’s only goal had been so sudden and expertly taken. But the Americans vanquished a jinx and opened the gates to a world of possibility in the coming days.

fter selling handmade sweets for more than two decades, Stafford’s Famous Chocolates took its rightful place as a fierce Santa Barbara chocolate competitor by winning the people’s choice award at the Rape Crisis Center’s annual Chocolate de Vine fundraiser earlier this year. The company was first founded in 1987 in the San Joaquin Valley town of Porterville by Larry Stafford, and it stayed in his family until 2012, when Benjamin Taylor and his father took over. One of the Taylors’ first moves was opening a retail shop in Los Olivos, and they also plan to open another in Santa Barbara sometime soon. Relying on regional ingredients remains a key to the company’s continued success, especially the fruits and nuts that come from the orchards near Porterville and, increasingly, the products, including wine and beer, that are available in the Santa Ynez Valley. Larry Stafford’s trademark recipes are still the core of the business, but the Taylors are also developing creative confections of their own. Here are some customer favorites:

Ooey Gooey Bar & Sea Salt Caramels: Although the name is reminiscent of a whimsical Willy Wonka creation, this bar is one of Larry Stafford’s original recipes. It comes on a stick and consists of fluffy homemade marshmallow, natural peanut butter, and caramel that’s covered in a creamy layer of dark or milk chocolate and topped off with crunchy California almonds. To satisfy a sweet tooth with a more simple selection, try the Sea Salt Caramels for a sensational blend of sweet and salty flavors. Each caramel is handdipped in dark or milk chocolate and then sprinkled with Mediterranean sea salt crystals. Dark Chocolate Lavender & Red Wine Truffles: Stafford’s recently collaborated with Clairmont Lavender Farm to enhance the rich taste of their Dark Chocolate Lavender Truffle. That’s a popular pick in wine country, and so are the Dark Chocolate Red Wine Truffles, which contain a decadent ganache center delicately flavored with red wine from the Santa Ynez Valley. Beer Brittle: For those who love beer as much as chocolate, watch out for Stafford’s Beer Brittle, a collaboration with Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company that combines roasted peanuts and pretzels with Davy Brown Ale. They’re also considering adding Figueroa Mountain beer to a truffle or caramel in the near future. Explained Taylor, “Some beers that I think might work the best are their Hoppy Poppy IPA and their Stagecoach Stout.” — Kailey Erlich

OWEN PALLETT IN CONFLICT

It’s been four years since Owen Pallett exchanged his Final Fantasy moniker for his own name. In the time between, the singer/songwriter/violinist has pursued a handful of endeavors, musical and otherwise. He joined the Arcade Fire lineup; he wrote exhaustively on Top  music theory; he was nominated for an Oscar. Yet what informs much of In Conflict, at least at the start, is Pallett’s quest inward. Pallett’s records have always been dazzling affairs. See him live, and you’ll be further wowed, his jockeying of violin, vocals, and live looping pedals closest akin to an above-average

street juggler. While Conflict finds Pallett scaling back the technical wizardry ever so slightly, it’s the lyrical content that makes for the real shift. Lead single “The Riverbed” is a chugging, aggressive jumping-off point. “On the day that you find your thirties have left you childless / Remember when you meet your coupled friends with unease,” Pallett bellows, cutting to the core of just one of Conflict’s highly personal themes. Later, “Infernal Fantasy” finds the singer bouncing between falsetto and baritone, wrestling with his own sexual need: “I know no satisfaction only know desire,” he lilts. On “The Passions” he offers up the line “You hooked your pinkies on my jeans / I’m 28, and you’re 19.” These brazen mirror moments pop up throughout Conflict, often intermingling with the fantastic images that mark much of Pallett’s songbook and ultimately

making for an album that is more resonating and thought-provoking than anything the singer has done to date. Owen Pallett opens for (and plays with) Arcade Fire at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Monday, August 4. For tickets and info, call 962-7411 or visit sbbowl.com. — Aly Comingore

Thom Pain (based on nothing) Makes Its Santa Barbara Debut

Robert Sean Leonard plays King Arthur in Camelot in Concert.

KING FOR A DAY In 1960, 1960 9660, Alan Alan lan Jay Jay Lerner Lerner Lern er and and Frederick Loewe took the Broadway world by storm with the debut of their musical Camelot, which tells the classic story of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table. The tale follows Arthur as he struggles to maintain order and justice in his kingdom in the face of betrayal, chaos, and the threat of total destruction. The musical was a huge success and went on to win four Tonys. The soundtrack also reigned at the top of the album charts for more than a year, fueled by songs like “If Ever I Would Leave You,”“I Wonder What the King Is Doing Tonight,” and “I Loved You Once in Silence.” These remarkable achievements have given the play life well beyond its original run, resulting in more than 50 years of rewrites and revivals. This week the musical returns to the stage again, albeit in a slightly tweaked format, as Camelot in Concert at the Granada Theatre. Camelot in Concert is a semi-staged version of the musical, and significantly stripped down, much like the famous Les Misérables anniversary concerts. For this production, the role of King Arthur will be played by Tony Award–winning actor Robert Sean Leonard, who has had a long and successful career both on stage and in film and TV. Brandi Burkhardt will be playing Queen Guenevere, while Michael Campayno, who was most recently seen playing Rolf in the televised production of NBC’s The Sound of Music, will portray Lancelot. The production will feature the musical assistance of the Santa Barbara Symphony under the direction of James Moore and features Marcia Milgrom Dodge as stage director, who was previously nominated for a Tony for her work in the 2009 Broadway musical Ragtime. In short, this is a historyrich, world-class, talent-filled production, and it’s sure to make for a memorable trip to the theater. Camelot in Concert comes to the Granada Theatre ( State St.) on Saturday, June 21, at 8 p.m. and Sunday, June 22, at 3 p.m. Call 899-2222 or visit granadasb.org for tickets and info. — Blake Harper

oming-of-age stories have been told countless times throughout history, as the concept of following someone on their journey to adulthood is something that almost anyone can relate to. Manchester Girl, a onewoman play written by, codirected by, and starring Sue Turner-Cray, invites us to take this journey with Sara Taylor, an English teenager in the ’80s who dreams of escaping her small-town existence and seeing the world. Sara’s dream soon comes true, and she is whisked from England all the way to Japan as a fashion model. Her life is filled with glamorous photo shoots and endless adventure, but she soon learns that growing up comes with certain costs. While Manchester Girl might not be adding anything particularly revolutionary to the coming-of-age genre, the brutal honesty in Turner-Cray’s writing and acting make the play a rousing success. Turner-Cray puts many talents on display here, but it is undoubtedly her acting that stands out. She portrays every character in the play, which seems like a gimmick that might grow old fast, but watching her seamlessly transform from Sara’s Japanese-Peruvian lover Fernando to the middle-aged, obese Doreen in only a few seconds turns out to be an absolute delight. Still, it’s her incredibly portrayal of Sara, a character full of depth, contradictions, and confusion, that steals the show. Perhaps the only real weakness here are some of the directing choices, such as the terrible transitions that feature Sara awkwardly dancing to different songs and seem to have no real purpose except reminding the audience what decade the play is set in. Ultimately, Manchester Girl avoids feeling cliché due to its willingness to be much more than a cautionary tale. Instead, the play serves as a powerful reminder of how much a person is shaped by the obstacles and choices they face every day. Sara’s transformation from innocent, childish girl to independent, bold woman does not happen overnight, and Turner-Cray masterfully ■ grants us insight into that complex, fascinating story.

THREE CHORDS IN A BAR

Ojai Music Festival 2014. At the Libbey Bowl, Thursday-Sunday, June 12-15. Reviewed by Charles Donelan

T

his year’s ebullient edition of the Ojai Music Festival reflected the eclectic taste, prodigious scholarship, and zany sense of humor of its music director, pianist Jeremy Denk. The centerpiece was the premiere on Friday night of a new satirical opera by Denk and composer Steven Stucky called The Classical Style: An Opera (of Sorts), which was packed, both score and libretto, with inventive wit. But even on Sunday morning, when the Knights got things started with a reverent reading of Mozart’s Symphony No. , “Jupiter,” the tone swung back to irreverence when the vocal ensemble Hudson Shad sang a pair of Mozart’s most scandalous “Scatalogical Canons.” In between the gutter and the stars of this, the area’s most consistently thrilling annual event, there was plenty of incredible music to swoon over, obsess about, or just ponder, albeit in new ways. On Thursday, Denk introduced his opening-night performance with typically self-deprecating humor, declaring that he felt like an “opening act” for the Uri Caine Ensemble. His program paired two sets of miniatures, one by Franz Schubert and the other by Leoš Janáček. In itself, this was not a particularly bold statement, as recitalists commonly juxtapose romantic and modern music, but what distinguished Denk’s performance as belonging to the Ojai tradition of unsettling approaches was the sequencing. Rather than playing one of the series straight through and then starting the other, he caromed back and forth, sometimes playing two or three Schubert compositions before alternating with the Janáček, and other times simply going back and forth. In the process, the tone of the Janáček series, which is called On an Overgrown Path, and which was written at a time of deep distress for the composer, becomes intertwined with that of the more conventional seeming nostalgia of Schubert. The combination made an eloquent brief for the festival’s theme, which was the beautiful tension between the consolations of harmony and the ecstasies of dissonance. Uri Caine’s set on Thursday night reworked the music of Gustav Mahler for a jazz group consisting of Caine on piano, Chris Speed on clarinet, Ralph Alessi on trumpet, Josefina Vergara on violin, John Hébert on bass, Jim Black on drums, and DJ Olive on turntables. Cantor Don Gurney joined in for the final number,“The Farewell” from Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde. Although teasing out the Jewish musical roots of Mahler’s lyricism and steeping the result in jazz and blues inflections may not be quite as shocking today as it was in 1997 when

Caine got started with the project, time has allowed his ensemble’s mutual understanding to mature and flourish. For Friday night’s big premiere, I took advantage of the Ojai Music Festival’s decision to live stream the opera and watched it from a very comfortable seat on my own sofa. It opened with Beethoven (bass-baritone Ashraf Sewailam), Haydn (tenor Dominic Armstrong), and Mozart (soprano Jennifer Zetlan) hanging out together in heaven and dealing with the depressing news that their musical movement,“the classical style,” has run out of steam. Turning aside from the game of Scrabble they have been enjoying, the big three decide to seek out the musicologist and pianist Charles Rosen, the author of a famous 1971 book called The Classical Style. From there, Stucky and Denk were off and running with one musicological in-joke after another. Three chords, the tonic (bass-baritone Aubrey Allicock), the dominant (mezzo-soprano Rachel Calloway), and the subdominant (mezzo-soprano Peabody Southwell), walk into a bar, where they demonstrate Rosen’s pet subject, sonata form. Despite its obvious cleverness, The Classical Style: An Opera (of Sorts) proved unexpectedly moving in the final scene, when Schumann (Peabody Southwell) appeared to Rosen, seeking the scholar’s insight into his own role in the grand scheme of musical things. Saturday saw yet another deconstruction/reconstruction of the classical style, this time by young composer/ pianist Timo Andres. His “Re-Composition” of Mozart’s “Coronation” Concerto took advantage of blanks in Mozart’s original score to import musical ideas from very far afield. At once more conventionally classical in its language and more noticeably divergent in its effects than Caine’s jazz version of Mahler on Thursday night, Andres’s music left the sophisticated Ojai audience both wowed and a little bit stunned. We will be hearing a lot more about this musician soon. For the opening of the Saturday-night concert, the 2014 festival’s orchestra in residence, The Knights, made a splash with their own reimagining of a Boccherini quintet as a rowdy, exuberant display for string orchestra. After an exquisite rendering of Charles Ives’s Three Places in New England (Did I mention that Denk is a big Ives fan? He is, and he backs it up.), the night’s climax came when The Knights were joined by Hudson Shad and Storm Large for the Brecht-Weill song cycle The Seven Deadly Sins. As is often the case with this festival, there was more music happening than any individual could possibly hear, never mind comprehend, but flirting with ■ musical overload, Ojai-style, is always worth it.

SIGNAL ORIGINS

JUNE 24

JULY JULY JULY JULY JULY

Will Eubank Rethinks the Summer Blockbuster by Jake Blair

A

t first glance, The Signal feels akin to a lot of movies released (or, rather, thrown at) summertime audiences: A group of attractive, roughly college-aged friends depart on a road trip. More specifically, a trio of friends: a pair of troubled lovers (Brenton Thwaites, Olivia Cooke) and their beloved, bespectacled buddy (Beau Knapp). They’re all very attractive, sure, but they’re also smart (computer-hacker MIT smart), and an obsessive pursuit of a “showboating” hacker quickly takes the characters off course and into the middle of the New Mexico desert. Up to this point, the audience has interacted almost solely with the film’s protagonists, all from the limited perspective of a subtly shaky handycam — but then things change. In a scene that’s as unnervingly fluid as it is jarring, the tone and the story hook a hard left, anchored only by the intimate feelings conjured in the first act. “The reason [for using the handycam] is because when I think of a scary film, the scariest stuff that I ever watch is this new stuff,” remarked cowriter, director, and Santa Ynez native William Eubank.“It makes me feel like I’m really watching something authentic.” In a hospital or research facility echoing the mid-century aesthetic and emptiness of Kubrick’s : A Space Odyssey, the film makes its shift. The rooms and halls are sterile and cold, made sickening by an orange-yellow hue. This is where Laurence Fishburne (who Eubank at one point refers to as “Larry”) powerfully lends his commanding voice and presence, almost single-handedly shouldering the film’s sci-fi lean with his Vader-esque shadow. It’s also where we get a glimpse of the beautifully orchestrated, full-frame shots emblematic of the visual sensibilities that set Eubanks apart early on when he worked as a camera technician and directed commercials while attending UCLA. It’s that feeling of authenticity, or rather the pursuit of that feeling, that seems to define Eubank’s growing filmography. In Love, Eubank’s stunning full-length debut, which premiered at the Santa Barbara Film Festival in 2011, audiences were pushed to find meaning in pure feeling. Love is “the ability to feel and find complete communication without words or touch,” Eubank said in a 2011 interview.“It’s the ability to find an understanding on nothing but a sense.” In both The Signal and Love, Eubank’s adept use of perspective helps to foster those senses in his audience, and his perspective isn’t just limited to the trembling camcorders, off-camera screams, or even the artful

SOPHOMORE SUCCESS STORY: Director William Eubank (left) and actor Beau Knapp (right) set up a shot during filming for The Signal. The newly released sci-fi thriller is the second full-length film from Santa Ynez native Eubank. full-frame shots for which he is routinely praised. In conversation, Eubank routinely points to his varied sources of inspiration, which range from Lord of the Flies to the Japanese anime cartoon Dragon Ball Z, which made its way to the States via Cartoon Network in the late 1990s. Even the decision to use the super-wide 2.39:1 theatrical anamorphic format was one Eubank made based on feeling, citing the perspective’s ability to allow actors to look directly into the audience’s eyes. After getting the green light, it was Eubank’s gut that told him to move forward with an immediately available $3-$4 million, rather than wait for years in order to secure a larger budget. (It would have been in the $10-$12 million range, according to Eubank.) It was also Eubank who chose to cast actors he felt a personal rapport with in the hopes of constructing a dynamic and intimate group, rather than a collection of talented individuals. On set, those gut decisions combined with Eubank’s unorthodox (read: youthful) method of filmmaking, which meant shooting over the course of several small-scale weekend trips into the desert, where the crew would set up shots in parking lots and alongside random desert roads. Looking back on the experience, Eubank says that setting The Signal in New Mexico contributed greatly to the film’s style and feel. “Being in Albuquerque definitely brought something different,” adds actor Beau Knapp. “It’s an eerie place, and it’s also alive with dust storms and all of these things.” Despite being featured in one of The Signal’s most riveting scenes, Knapp points elsewhere when asked what his favorite experience was from filming. “The Area  scene [lead actor Brenton Thwaites] and I did in the kitchen — I was almost hyperventilating because it was so hot and my suit was so heavy,” recalls Knapp.“It brought a physicality to the character that I couldn’t have brought myself.” While the suit was surely hot and heavy, it’s difficult to imagine any of The Signal’s performances being the same in a different environment, an environment fostered by the still-young Eubank’s willingness to push the limits and defy his — and our — expectations.

I

f you never met a meta-movie you didn’t like, then  Jump Street is for you. The film is stitched together with in-house references to its original cheesy TV series source and the obvious, self-consciously noted problems of making a sequel. But even the names of the film’s stars and inspiration points come up in clever asides. We glimpse a campus building dedicated to filmmaking and one Benjamin Hill; the new cop headquarters with a Vietnamese Jesus in it has a glass-walled office for the chief,“It

looks like a big cube … of ice,” says Hill’s character. If the joke needs explaining, you probably don’t need the movie. This time Schmidt and Jenko (Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum, respectively) go to college, after a confusing halfstep where they attend online college, a joke that seems to be aimed at some kind of satire, but just comes off as padding. The rest of the film, though, has a perfect ear for all of the dubious joys of contemporary higher education: improv nights, poetry slams, and, of course, cheap jokes about hookup culture. The walk-of-shame sequences are brilliant. The rest is good enough, mainly because of Tatum, who has become a straight-faced performer game for anything, including the hilarious exploration of the wide homoerotic vein in any buddy film. Maybe even better, though, is Jillian Bell as the quintessential creepy roommate. It’s college humor at its best: smart, self-deprecating, and perfect for people who love to watch movies that make fun of movies ■ that make fun of stuff.

illiam Eubank may not even like horror films, but he sure seems well-equipped to make one. In fact, he all but does in the first scenes of this, his new science-fiction thriller. Eubank is the young director from the Santa Ynez Valley who blew minds at the 2011 Santa Barbara Film Fest with a short film about love and outer space, featuring an amazing set he made in his parents’ driveway from hardware store parts. This film, his first with a real studio budget, is also about love and space, but it cleverly adds another dimension into the mix — scary human vulnerability. It concerns a road-tripping trio of computer-techheads who are dogged by a near-omniscient hacker named Nomad. Our hero, Nic (Brenton Thwaites), is slightly disabled, and bonded in twenty-something love with Haley (Olivia Cooke). The third good-looking nerd

HOMEGROWN HEAD TRIP: Brenton Thwaites and Olivia Cooke star in Santa Ynez Valley director William Eubank’s sci-fi thriller The Signal. is Jonah (Beau Knapp), who keeps goading Nic to go after their mysterious stalker. As they draw near their destination, Eubank builds up a palpable threat that the trio is somehow being followed and led at the same time, ending up in an abandoned house with all the creep factor of The Blair Witch Project’s final scenes. The rest of the movie takes an abrupt turn into the twilight zone, which isn’t a bad thing, though the exquisite tension of the first dozen scenes dissipates. The most surprising aspect here is the strong bond and emotive grace Eubank gets from his actors. The cast is superb, including Laurence Fishburne as a mysterious interrogator. Eubank seemed destined to be the director who could turn in remarkable visual effects under budget, and he does; the set and settings are indelibly memorable. But the best part of this film is how characters get under your skin. The final battles with the signal’s creepy source don’t deliver the payoff the movie seems to promise, but the horror story locked inside the mystery ■ seems potentially awesome.

✯ The Lego Movie

(100 mins.; PG: mild action,

rude humor)

A lowly Lego mini-figure is mistakenly recruited to help stop an evil tyrant from gluing the universe together. The nature of Lego is the creation of lands, environments, and worlds, and the true strength of this wacky movie is the way it keeps breaking walls and entering new dimensions. (DJP) Fri., June 20, 8pm, La Cumbre Plaza, 121 S. Hope Ave.

✯ The Lunchbox

times coarse, and often fine comedy that will leave you hungry at the end. (DJP) Paseo Nuevo

✯ Edge of Tomorrow (113 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of sci-fi action and violence, brief language, suggestive material) The most interesting aspect of Edge is its implicit relationship to gaming; there are repeated battles, ascending worlds, and antiseptic violence. It seems to signal video games as the new junk-movie-aesthetic principle. (DJP)

When a lunchbox in Mumbai’s complex delivery system ends up in the wrong hands, a young wife and an older man begin a correspondence with lifechanging implications.

How to Train Your Dragon 2 (102 mins.; PG: adventure action, some mild rude humor)

Five years into the future at Hiccup’s fine fantasy Viking outpost and the biggest conflict in his life is when he might assume control of the village from his burly papa Stoick. Dragons, once feared, now hang out with the Norsemen as combination pets and sporting activities. Of course, there is a big conflict in the offing, and Hiccup’s Enlightenment Hippie philosophy will be sorely challenged again, but in the meantime, the real problem for the moviemakers is how to top the thrill ride of the first film when Hiccup flies his crazy, cute dragon with the audience on board.         Don’t worry, they pull it off.  If the point of moviemaking was just to dazzle, this would be the film of the year. En route to head off warmongering Drago, Hiccup and Toothless stumble into a family revelation and then a cavern full of “rescued” fire breathers. For at least a minute, the big screen is filled with a disarming array of beautifully drawn characters we mostly won’t see again. It’s the animators showing off, and it represents the best and the worst parts of this sequel. “Bigger is better” becomes the strategy employed: Even the story is more melodramatic. In fact, with all this effort, the movie forgot to be very cute or funny, except for a scene where Astrid makes fun of Hiccup’s Jay Baruchel mannerisms. It’s a satisfying follow-up, with one big shock, but nowhere near as endearing as part one. (DJP) Arlington (2-D)/Fairview (2-D and 3-D)/ Fiesta 5 (2-D and 3-D)

a&e | ROB BREZSNY’S FREE WILL ASTROLOGY WEEK OF JUNE ď›œď™ ARIES

CANCER

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): If you were alive 150 years ago and needed to get a tooth extracted, you might have called on a barber or blacksmith or wigmaker to do the job. (Dentistry didn’t become a formal occupation until the latter part of the 19th century.) Today you wouldn’t dream of seeking anyone but a specialist to attend to the health of your mouth. But I’m wondering if you are being less particular about certain other matters concerning your welfare. Have you been seeking ďŹ nancial advice from your massage therapist? Spiritual counsel from your car repair person? Nutritional guidance from a fast-food addict? I suggest you avoid such behavior. It’s time to ask for speciďŹ c help from those who can actually provide it.

(June 21 - July 22): Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts has a collection of Japanese art that is never on display. It consists of 6,600 wood-block prints created by artists of the ukiyo-e school, also known as “pictures of the oating world.â€? Some are over 300 years old. They are tucked away in drawers and hidden from the light, ensuring that their vibrant colors won’t fade. So they are wellpreserved but rarely seen by anyone. Is there anything about you that resembles these pictures of the oating world, Cancerian? Do you keep parts of you secret, protecting them from what might happen if you show them to the world? It may be time to revise that policy. (Thanks to Molly OldďŹ eld’s The Secret Museum for the info referred to here.)

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): “My music is best understood by children and animals,â€? said composer Igor Stravinsky. A similar statement could be made about you Tauruses in the coming weeks: You will be best understood by children and animals — and by all others who have a capacity for dynamic innocence and a buoyant curiosity rooted in emotional intelligence. In fact, those are the types I advise you to surround yourself with. For now, it’s best to avoid sophisticates who overthink everything and know-it-all cynics whose default mode is criticism. Take control of what inuences you absorb. You need to be in the presence of those who help activate your vitality and enthusiasm.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): “Nikhedoniaâ€? is an obscure English word that refers to the pleasure that comes from anticipating success or good fortune. There’s nothing wrong with indulging in this emotion as long as it doesn’t interfere with you actually doing the work that will lead to success or good fortune. But the problem is, nikhedonia makes some people lazy. Having experienced the thrill of imagining their victory, they ďŹ nd it hard to buckle down and slog through the gritty details necessary to manifest their victory. Don’t be like that. Enjoy your nikhedonia, then go and complete the accomplishment that will bring a second, even stronger wave of gratiďŹ cation.

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): In the next two weeks, I hope you don’t fall prey to the craze that has been sweeping Japan. Over 40,000 people have bought books that feature the photos of hamuketsu, or hamster bottoms. Even if you do manage to avoid being consumed by that particular madness, I’m afraid you might get caught up in tries and distractions that are equally irrelevant to your longterm dreams. Here’s what I suggest: To counteract any tendency you might have to neglect what’s truly important, vow to focus intensely on what’s truly important.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Writing at FastCompany.com, Himanshu Saxena suggests that businesses create a new position: Chief Paradox OďŹƒcer, or CPXO. This person would be responsible for making good use of the conicts and contradictions that normally arise, treating them as opportunities for growth rather than as distractions. From my astrological perspective, you Virgos are currently prime candidates to serve in this capacity. You will continue to have special powers to do this type of work for months to come.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): In accordance with the astrological omens, you are hereby granted a brief, one-time-only

license to commit the Seven Deadly Sins. You heard me correctly, Libra. As long as you don’t go to extremes, feel free to express healthy amounts of pride, greed, laziness, gluttony, anger, envy, and lust. At least for now, there will be relatively little hell to pay for these indulgences. Just one caveat: If I were you, I wouldn’t invest a lot of energy in anger and envy. Technically, they are permitted, but they aren’t really much fun. On the other hand, greed, gluttony, and lust could be quite pleasurable, especially if you don’t take yourself too seriously. Pride and laziness may also be enjoyable in moderate, artful amounts.

rodents want to exert their natural instinct to run around, they’ve got to do it on this device. But here’s a curious twist: a team of Dutch researchers has discovered that wild mice also enjoy using exercise wheels. The creatures have all the room to roam they need, but when they come upon the wheels in the middle of the forest, they hop on and go for prolonged spins. I suggest you avoid behavior like that, Capricorn. Sometime soon you will ďŹ nd yourself rambling through more spacious places. When that happens, don’t act like you do when your freedom is more limited.

SCORPIO

AQUARIUS

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Scorpio novelist Kurt Vonnegut rebelled against literary traditions. His stories were often hybrids of science ďŹ ction and autobiography: free-form philosophizing blended with satirical moral commentary. He could be cynical yet playful, and he told a lot of jokes.“I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over,â€? he testiďŹ ed. “Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can’t see from the center.â€? He’s your role model for the next four weeks, Scorpio. Your challenge will be to wander as far as you can into the frontier without getting hopelessly lost.

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): It’s transition time. We will soon see how skilled you are at following through. The innovations you have launched in recent weeks need to be eshed out. The creativity you unleashed must get the full backing of your practical action. You will be asked to make good on the promises you made or even implied. I want to urge you not to get your feelings hurt if some pruning and editing are required. In fact, I suggest you relish the opportunity to translate fuzzy ideals into tidy structures. Practicing the art of ingenious limitation will make everything better.

SAGITTARIUS

PISCES

(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): “Make a name for the dark parts of you,â€? writes Lisa Marie Basile in her poem “Paz.â€? I think that’s good advice for you, Sagittarius. The imminent future will be an excellent time to fully acknowledge the shadowy aspects of your nature. More than that, it will be a perfect moment to converse with them, get to know them better, and identify their redeeming features. I suspect you will ďŹ nd that just because they are dark doesn’t mean they are bad or shameful. If you approach them with love and tenderness, they may even reveal their secret genius.

(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): It’s always important for you to shield yourself against our culture’s superďŹ cial and sexist ideas about sex. It’s always important for you to cultivate your own unique and soulful understandings about sex. But right now this is even more crucial than usual. You are headed into a phase when you will have the potential to clarify and deepen your relationship with eros. In ways you have not previously imagined, you can learn to harness your libido to serve both your spiritual aspirations and your quest for greater intimacy.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): Pet mice that are kept in cages need to move more than their enclosed space allows, so their owners often provide them with exercise wheels. If the

Beer of the Week Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. Lizard’s Mouth Imperial IPA For an IPA with quite high alcohol at 9.2%, this recent release from Fig Mountain is a deceptively smooth sipping experience, with enough warm, golden malts to balance the hops and hide the boozy heat almost completely. The beer features one of the newer, more whimsical labels from this Santa Barbara County brewery — which now has tap rooms in the Funk Zone and Los Olivos, with a restaurant soon opening in their Buellton headquarters — but remains an ode to regional landmarks, this one a popular hiking spot of West Camino Cielo. It’s also available in kegs, for those so inclined to serve this to all your friends. See figmtnbrew.com.

Dine Out for CADA Kids

A

day-long “Dine Out” event will be held Tuesday, June 24, to support CADA’s youth programs. Residents are invited to dine at their favorite participating restaurant, and a percentage of proceeds will go to support CADA Kids. CADA Kids represent the preventive substanceabuse programs of CADA, reaching thousands of young people annually. CADA Kids includes The Mentor Program, Teen Court at the Daniel Bryant Center, TART and CARE (early intervention programs in grade schools), Friday Night Live & Club Live leadership programs, and Youth Service Specialists, who serve the public junior high and high schools. Participating restaurants include Arch Rock, Arts & Letters Café, bouchon, Brophy Bros., Bucatini, Café Del Sol, Chuck’s Waterfront Grill, Fresco Café, Jill’s Place, Joe’s Café, Lucky Penny, Lucky’s Steakhouse, McDonald’s (S.B. and Goleta), Mulligans Café, Opal Restaurant, Paradise Café, Pascucci, Savoy Café, Sojourner Restaurant, Toma Restaurant, and Tre Lune. To sign up as a participating restaurant or to view the latest list of participating restaurants, visit dineoutforcadakids.com.

RUMOR MACHINE: Word on the street is that Lucky Penny at  Anacapa Street will move to  Anacapa Street, former home of the recently closed Avelina Wine Company. I’m hearing that it will then become a full breakfast and lunch place, opening at 7 a.m., and will bake its own bread. The pizza oven will stay at its current location. As always, this rumor might be completely false or a brilliant forecast of future events. Your call. CENTRAL COAST WINE CLASSIC: The 29th annual Central Coast Wine Classic, a weekend of fine wine and cuisine, is being held July 10-12. Tickets must be purchased by June 22. Many charities on the Central Coast will be awarded gifts, including the Rona Barrett Foundation. “We at the Rona Barrett Foundation are honored for being chosen the recipient of this year’s Fund-A-Need award,” said Rona Barrett, founder and CEO of the Rona Barrett Foundation.“We hope the Golden Inn & Village will be a solution to the growing crisis of how we house and care for our vulnerable seniors and a pilot showcase for the Central Valley to be replicated elsewhere. Our pilot facility will be built in the Santa Ynez Valley and completed in 2016.” Visit centralcoastwineclassic.com.

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. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. 6/2/14 Lender’s Foreclosure Services, As Trustee _________________________________ _____ Sylvia L.
