It’s been quite an award-winning season for our own editor in chief, Marianne Partridge (left), who founded The Santa Barbara Independent back in 1986. In May, she won a Spirit of Entrepreneurship Award during a gala at the Fess Parker Resort, and earlier this month, she was named a “Woman of Achievement” by the Association for Women in Communications during a luncheon at the Montecito Country Club. That’s where she was feted by longtime friend and journalist Ann Louise Bardach (right), who, among other hilarious memories, recalled that when Partridge was editor of New York City’s raucous Village Voice, Rupert Murdoch tried to fire her three times!

Orange Is the New Lack Sky Falls on GOP Bigwig and Prominent Building Contractor

COU RTESY SBSO

PAU L WELLM AN F I LE PHOTO

ing forced — like all jail inmates — to take mincing baby steps by the chains connecting his ankles. He was dressed in County Jail scrubs and wore jail-orange rubber slippers and jailorange socks. His face was blotched red where he’d used Nair in lieu of a razor. During his glory days, Lack had concocted credible dreams of major development where the MTD’s downtown transit depot now stands. He worked on plans to create a whole new city spanning the nether space between San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara counties. But in 2007, the economy tanked largely because the nation’s banks had been heedlessly selling improperly secured loans, like Lack’s. When Lack couldn’t make payments, his banks asked the questions they should have posed in the first place. When he still couldn’t pay, they sued. And the house of Lack came crashing down. At the time, Lack insisted he was the victim of a bad economy. He had planned to start his own bank and solicited $300,000 from Mary Belle Snow, a forceful conservative tight with David Horowitz, the reformed left-wing radical turned incendiary rightwinger. When Ty Warner was still trying to rebuild the Miramar — and remodel the Coral Casino — the Beanie Baby billionaire had no more passionate champion than Snow. Lack and Snow — married to Grammy Award–winning songwriter Tom Snow — had once been close friends. But, say associates of both, she was the wrong person to cross. According to court documents, Lack spent $241,000 for his own ends. On what exactly, Cota has yet to explain. If and when the case eventually goes to trial, presumably he will. Lack’s attorney, Robert Sanger, is moving for yet another trial extension, citing Lack’s health. How Judge Dandona rules, Lack will find out Friday. But this Monday, he won some small respite. Dandona set the bail for the two separate cases combined at $220,000, far less than what Cota wanted. A friend and employee named Fae Perry put up her own property as collateral so Lack could get out for yet another meeting with his surgeon. If convicted on all charges, Lack could face a maximum sentence of 14 years. ■

LACK ATTACK: Above David Lack’s recent booking photo is Lack in better days, showing then presidential aspirant Rudy Giuliani around town in 2008.

P

BY N I C K W E L S H rosecuting attorney Brian Cota didn’t merely throw the book at David Lack, a prominent Santa Barbara building contractor with fivestar connections all the way to the top of the Republican food chain; he’s thrown an entire library at him. If Cota gets his way, he’ll begin court proceedings against Lack this Friday on charges that Lack lied to two banks — the Bank of Santa Barbara and Rabobank — in order to secure $1.2 million in loans beginning in 2007 and that he ripped off $241,000 from Montecitan Mary Belle Snow, a conservative blogger and high-profile activist. Lack told the banks he owned real estate in Santa Barbara and in Texas that could be used as collateral when, in fact, he did not. The trial would have started last week, but Lack had surgery for skin cancer. When the surgeon was done, Cota had Lack arrested and jailed on a whole new set of charges — operating as a contractor even though his license had been revoked, failure to pay taxes, and failure to make workers’ compensation payments. He’s also threatening to file a third set of charges, alleging Lack “stole” $1.4 million because he did $1.4 million worth of work on a Montecito estate, representing himself as a licensed contractor when in fact he was not. As Cota explained in court Monday, every penny Lack took constituted theft because he falsely represented himself as a licensed con10

tractor. Last Friday, Cota went even further, demanding that Judge Jean Dandona slap Lack in jail and set bail at $700,000. He argued Lack posed a threat to public safety because he’d repeatedly violated the terms of his release, established in 2010, when charges were first filed. Dandona balked, setting bail at $200,000 instead. Even so, Lack spent the weekend in jail. The David Lack who walked into court Monday morning to argue his bail amount was a far cry from the political macher seen in the many photographs lining his office walls, posing with former Republican presidents Ronald Reagan, George Bush, and George W. Bush. Likewise, he was light years from the tall, lean, and friendly man-about-town who in 2008 squired New York mayor Rudy Giuliani — then seeking the Republican presidential nomination — around Santa Barbara. Or the even younger man — fresh from Iowa — who broke onto Santa Barbara’s political scene in 1990 as right-hand man to Michael Huffington, then a carpetbagging Texas billionaire who “bought” Santa Barbara’s congressional seat that happened to be occupied by longtime incumbent Bob Lagomarsino. Instead, Lack entered court Monday morn-

news briefs LAW & DISORDER

In an interview with the Washington Post, the parents of Elliot Rodger’s three stabbing victims said they’re frustrated by how the Santa Barbara Sheriff’s Office has handled the case, criticizing the agency for not yet telling them how their sons were killed over a month ago. “How did one boy do this? Our sons, there were three of them,” said Junan Chen, the father of 19-year-old George Chen, in the interview. “We wonder, were our boys drugged?” Sheriff’s spokesperson Kelly Hoover told the Post that the department “owes it to the victim’s families and to the public to not prematurely release information before we have all of the facts in this case.” Sgt. Mark Williams told The Santa Barbara Independent, “We are looking at approximately another month before the investigation is complete.” Gov. Jerry Brown crossed party lines and appointed Deputy District Attorney Michael Carrozzo to fill the Santa Barbara Superior Court vacancy left by Judge George Eskin’s retirement. Carrozzo joined the DA’s Office in 2007 — after many years in civil, personal injury, divorce, and immigration private practices, as well as the Army JAG (judge advocate general) Corps — and handled the department’s appellate case load, prosecutorial misconduct allegations, officerinvolved shootings, and narcotics cases. As for being a judge, the Loyola Law School graduate said, “It’s always been a dream of mine …. We all have an obligation to make the system work and to make it accessible so that everyone gets their day in court.” University of California President Janet Napolitano announced the creation of a task force to prevent sexual violence on campuses. Composed of regents, Title IX officers, administrators, students, and others, the task force’s establishment comes three months after UC updated its policy to coincide with the federal Violence Against Women Act. The new policy explicitly defines terms such as consent, increases reporting requirements, broadens victim protections, and increases prevention programs. The policy also specifies sanctions that the university can impose following a disciplinary determination.

CITY City officials will be reviewing local ordinances banning car camping to determine if they still pass legal muster in light of the appeals court ruling last week declaring Los Angeles’ ban unconstitutional. City Attorney Ariel Calonne said Santa Barbara’s laws are much more specifically written than Los Angeles’. Police spokesperson Riley Harwood elaborated that legal car camping requires the property owner’s permission, or if in a public parking lot, comes under the supervision of the New Horizons program. The City Council narrowly approved a measure that would give the Planning Commission greater opportunity to review larger highdensity developments that the council had agreed to fast track last summer as part of a broader effort to encourage affordable housing. Since adopting last year’s policy favoring development of smaller units, two such projects had been the subject of nasty council appeals.

Funk Zone Murals Thwarted

PAU L WELLM AN F I LE PHOTO

What was supposed to be the swan song of the Funk Zone’s much-loved public mural project instead ended on a sour note when a building manager and police stopped dozens of artists from participating in the farewell event last Friday afternoon. Since 2009, members of AMASS (Artists Making a Street Scene) have SHUT DOWN: Laura Inks Bodine stands in front of a finished painted the boarded mural back when the work was allowed. windows of the vacant building on the corner of Mason and Helena streets, an old structure scheduled for demolition this week as the long-delayed La Entrada project begins construction. With contributions from more than 150 street artists over the years, the murals became a symbol of the Funk Zone’s rising popularity, adding a splash of expression to an otherwise blighted corner while fending off graffiti. AMASS leader Laura Inks Bodine received formal permission for the “renegade experiment” from the property’s former owner back in 2009 but not Next Century Associates, the Los Angeles firm that took over in 2011. Though Next Century let new murals go up every four months for nearly three years, Inks Bodine admitted, “It was a given that it could stop at any time.” So ahead of Friday’s final hurrah, she invited the full roster of past contributors, who planned to create murals not just in the window spaces but across the outside walls themselves. Instead, the artists were greeted by the property manager and four city police officers. Property manager Eloise Hardy initially told Inks Bodine the murals needed to be kept to the window spaces but then said no painting could take place at all. On Monday, Hardy referred all of this newspaper’s questions to an unnamed La Entrada project leader, who was unavailable as of press time; calls to Next Century Associates were not returned. Police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood said Hardy called the station at 3:51 p.m. on Friday about vandalism. When officers arrived, they learned that the property owners were worried that if the building were painted, they would be compelled to repaint it because of city graffiti laws. “The police just said: ‘You had permission; now you don’t have permission,’” explained Inks Bodine, who said AMASS was left confused and demoralized but didn’t want to do anything illegally. “I just wanted to leave one last beautiful gift to Santa Barbara,” she said. “We had a great run, and we’re grateful they gave us permission — Tyler Hayden for that long.”

A free movie night program will debut at Bohnett Park as part of an ongoing campaign to make that park — long seen as a gang hangout — more inviting to neighborhood families. The kid-friendly series kicks off 7/9 with the screening of Frozen, followed by Free Willy and Finding Nemo. Mark Alvarado, neighborhood director with the City of Santa Barbara, said the program is part of a collective rehabilitation effort undertaken by City Hall, La Cumbre Foundation, United Way, and the Santa Barbara Rotary Club. It started in earnest last year with the installation of a new lighting system.

COUNTY Countywide, Santa Barbara’s unemployment rate dropped to 5 percent in May, the lowest since before the Great Recession struck in 2007. This April’s figure was 5.4 percent, and last May, it was 6.1 percent. Even though the biggest drops occurred in Santa Maria and Lompoc, these cities still have the county’s highest jobless rates at 8 and 9.1 percent, respectively. By contrast, Santa Barbara’s is 3.5 percent, Goleta’s 2.4 percent, and Carpinteria’s 2.5 percent. The majority of the new jobs were agricultural positions. Non-farm employment lost 200 jobs, with tourism losing 100.

Vandenberg Air Force Base reported that the kill vehicle launched from the Lompoc base (pictured above) successfully struck a long-range ballistic missile launched from the Marshall Islands in the South Pacific as part of an ongoing missile defense program that’s generated significant controversy over the high cost and high number of failures.

Jackson Floats Bill to Ban Offshore Drilling

A

bill to ban offshore oil drilling in Tranquillon Ridge state waters was announced last week by State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson. Senate Bill  was prompted by an assessment released last month from the Air Force Civil Engineer Center that reopened the possibility of drilling at Vandenberg Air Force Base — an idea that seemed just about dead for years. If it passes, the measure would mark another chapter in a controversial tale steeped with environmentalism, politics, and money. Tranquillon Ridge, or T-Ridge, is a deep-sea oil field beneath state and federal waters. Two decades ago, the California Coastal Sanctuary Act banned new offshore oil and gas leases three miles out (in state waters), but an exception exists when petroleum from state reserves is being drained by federal operations. Now, Jackson argues this “loophole” needs to be closed to protect an ecosystem so sensitive it was designated as a marine protected area in 2007. “The state can’t on the one hand say this warrants the top protection, but put this area at risk [on the other],” said Linda Krop, chief counsel for the Environmental Defense Center (EDC), which sponsored the bill. Bob Nunn, president of the most prominent player from the oil industry, Sunset Exploration, argued the exception is deliberately being mischaracterized as a backdoor “loophole” even though it was intentionally written into the law “so California could protect itself.” Nunn argued the state, not the feds, should be reaping the economic benefits of a project Sunset formally proposed in 2007 that was estimated to recover between 90 and 200 million barrels of oil. Though royalty rates are negotiated — onesixth is standard — Nunn estimated the state would receive $3 billion-$4 billion dollars in taxes, and Santa Barbara County would receive $300 million-$400 million over the project’s 20to 30-year lifespan. According to Kevin Drude, deputy director of the county’s Energy Division, the application was unable to be processed because the county requires a signature from the landowners — military officials — who were unwilling to do so at that time. Nunn is quick to point out that prior to her term as senator, Jackson was a paid consultant for EDC, when the environmental firm came extremely close to negotiating an unprecedented settlement agreement with Plains Exploration & Production, or PXP. The deal would have allowed PXP to tap the same reserves in T-Ridge in exchange for an “end date” on existing oil and gas operations and the donation of thousands of acres of land. “It wasn’t a loophole when they were strong supporters of a proliferation of offshore drilling from PXP’s [Platform] Irene,” Nunn asserted. In response, Krop nixed rumors that Jackson had been “working for PXP” and said EDC hired Jackson on behalf of two of its clients, Get Oil Out! and Citizens Planning Association of Santa Barbara. Jackson maintained the key distinction

Councilmember Bendy White suggested some disputes — involving projects 15,000 square feet or more — could be resolved sooner if the Planning Commission reviewed the projects.

Teeing Off on T-Ridge

ECO CONCERNS: State Senator Hannah-Beth Jackson has argued that projects pursued by Sunset and Exxon to drill into T-Ridge would pose serious environmental risks.

is that the previous agreement included a termination date.“It’s like talking apples and oranges” because Sunset did not offer an end date or greenhouse-gas offsets, Jackson said. “They just want to drill.” Almost all Santa Barbara enviros and elected officials were on board at the time. But in a move that caught nearly everyone off guard, the California State Lands Commission narrowly denied the agreement. In any case, the feds may have mandated that platforms in federal waters would have to be drilled as long as they were economically viable. About a decade ago, Sunset, along with ExxonMobil, proposed to drill at Vandenberg using a technique called extended-reach drilling, which is based on land and reaches horizontally beneath the sea floor. Nunn contends slant drilling safeguards the underwater habitat.“For me, it’s a nonstarter,” said Nunn. “I wouldn’t be supporting this if there was interaction with the ocean.” A number of years ago, the county completed an environmental impact report and found onshore alternatives — similar, but not identical to the project outlined in Sunset’s application — had comparable impacts and risks to offshore drilling; neither was better than the other. On the federal level, the House of Representatives will hear a Republican bill this week that would expand offshore drilling nationwide and mandate oil and gas lease sales off the coast of Santa Barbara and Ventura. Similar legislation has been proposed in the House each year since 2011 but has gone nowhere in the Senate. Opposing the measure, Congressmember Lois Capps offered three amendments, one of which made it to the House floor and would require the secretary of the interior to notify all regulatory agencies and publicly disclose any new offshore oil and gas permits. The vote is scheduled to take ■ place Thursday. june 26, 2014

Not Too Cool for School

California kids are staying in class and off the streets, according to a study released last week from the UCLA Civil Rights Project. In fact, two-thirds of all K-12 districts in the state reported suspension decreases for every racial group — with the largest drop among blacks and Hispanics — which may indicate a consistent downward trend, though experts say it’s too soon to tell. The Santa Barbara Unified School District suspended 678 students in 2013, a 10 percent drop from the previous year, according to the study. The most notable results can be seen at Santa Barbara Junior High School (SBJHS), said Aaron Harkey, a teacher on special assignment, at a recent board meeting. The school piloted the new discipline program called Restorative Approaches in 2012. In the 2012-2013 school year, there were 60 suspensions at SBJHS, which is approximately half the number from the previous year and a 74 percent decrease from the annual average over the past four years. Of the 60 suspensions, 38 were Hispanic students, which is a 23 percent decrease from the previous year. The UCLA study coincides with school districts’ finalization of the Local Control and Accountability Plan (LCAP), which documents goals and expenditure justifications for the next three years. At Tuesday night’s board meeting, applause rang in the board’s approval of the revised LCAP. Among a long list of goals, the district seeks to decrease suspension rates by 5 percent each year and spend $30,000 in training staff in Restorative Approaches. In the fall, restorative approaches will be implemented at Dos Pueblos and San Marcos high schools. Also Tuesday, the board approved a $106 million budget, which should increase by several million dollars over the next seven years. Notably, the district is just shy of receiving an additional half a million dollars because its unduplicated pupil count of low-income, foster youth, or English learners is currently 54 percent; more than 55 — Kelsey Brugger percent is required by the state to collect the extra funds.

Rigali ruled that the city was wrong in finding the petition title incorrect, but also that Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy (CAUSE) failed to state its signature-gatherers were at least 18 years old. Though Rigali stated CAUSE could simply resubmit with the corrected information, City Attorney Gilbert Trujillo disagreed, saying the city doesn’t have the “statutory authority” to accept corrected documents. Hazel PutneyDavalos of CAUSE said that the group will try again before the August 8 deadline for ballot measures. The Goleta City Council will get the final say on a 465-unit Villages of Los Carneros residential complex near Los Carneros Road and Highway 101, after the city’s Planning Commission voted 4-1 on Monday to approve the project. The complex would offer a mix of housing types

plus amenities like a bike path, parks, and open space. City staff addressed citizens’ concerns about the development’s effects on traffic, noise levels, and a nearby creek.

EDUCATION Washington Elementary School Principal Anne Hubbard is leaving the district and accepting a gig to head the one-school, K-8 Cayucos Elementary School District as both principal and superintendent. Hubbard said she plans to work closely with her successor. McKinley Elementary School Principal Tia Blickley also announced last week she is retiring. The news came the same day that a group of disgruntled parents sent a letter to the district demanding change, though it’s unclear if those two events are directly related. The district will likely fill three principal spots — Harding Elementary School Principal Venesha Davis announced her resignation weeks ago — at a board meeting next month. ■

‘Down the Proverbial Drain’

Santa Barbara City Councilmember Bendy White expressed great frustration that cityled water conservation efforts have born such paltry fruit. To date, consumers have saved 160 acre-feet. That’s far shy of the target 700 acre-feet water managers had hoped to achieve by now and shyer still of the 1,000 acre-feet they’d hoped customers would have saved by the end of July. “This is not a dress rehearsal,” White stated. “That 600 acre-feet we didn’t save, we just paid $600,000 for that,” referring to the cost of buying water from rice farmers north of the San Joaquin Valley or from the commanders at Vandenberg Air Force Base. “That’s $600,000 down the proverbial drain.” White argued that if City Hall had approved a steeper rate increase or had imposed serious penalties for water-guzzling customers, the public would have gotten the message sooner and responded accordingly. The council did approve new higher water rates to encourage conservation, but White objected the top-tier prices weren’t severe enough. Penalties, the council was told, could go into effect as soon as September. City Hall’s plans to resurrect its desalination plant also drew comment during Tuesday’s drought discussion. Some environmentalists, like Kira Redmond with the Channelkeeper, objected that the water intake valve of the mothballed facility killed aquatic creatures in large numbers. Acting water czar Josh Haggmark noted that the intake pipes are covered with a fine mesh screen so that larger fish can’t get sucked in and that the water velocity is low enough that smaller fish can swim away. Given the price tag of firing up the desal plant shut down 20 years ago — $30 million in capital expenses and $5 million year in operating costs — City Hall is not itching to pull the trigger. But if the drought continues, the council is poised to act next April. — Nick Welsh

all it “cyclic steam injection,” as the oil industry does. Call it “huff and puff,” as the environmentalists do. Call it whatever you want, as long as you preface it with “controversial” since the extraction method is the front and center issue of this November’s election. Spearheaded by an activist group dubbed the Water Guardians and bolstered by signatures from more than 16,000 county residents, an initiative on the next ballot aims to ban all new oil projects involving hydraulic fracturing, acidizing, and cyclic steaming. The Water Guardians has so far focused most of its outreach on the initiative — now known as Measure P, for “protection,” the group says — on hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a polarizing practice that other jurisdictions across the state have recently outlawed. But because the county’s new fracking rules have scared off applicants, cyclic-steaming companies could suffer the biggest blow if the measure passes. Although the process has had a foothold in California’s oil fields since the 1960s and in Santa Barbara County’s since the 1990s, H₂Odependent cyclic steaming hadn’t until recently attracted as much of the public’s attention as its ballot companions have. The spotlight came last November, when the supervisors approved Santa Maria Energy’s 136 cyclic-steam-injection wells. Since then, other regional oil companies have expressed increased interest in the technique. Pacific Coast Energy Company, whose Orcutt Oil Field sits next to Santa Maria Energy’s operations, applied last fall to add 96 wells to its existing 96. In March, PetroRock LLC got the green light for 56 new wells. This month, ERG Operating Company submitted its application for 233 cyclic steaming wells, an application that could soon be joined by Aera Energy’s whispers of 200-300 cyclic steaming wells. And Santa Maria Energy, in its now-scuttled bid to merge with a New York investment firm earlier this year, was found to have enough property to drill another 7,000. Overall, the majority of the 903 wells on the Planning Department’s radar are going the steam-injection route. But the industry’s expansion plans could be mere pipe dreams if the public buys environmentalists’ arguments over the companies’ assurances. Where Santa Maria Energy and Pacific Coast Energy Company cite strict state rules, advanced monitoring systems, and responsible water usage — plus high-paying jobs and much-needed tax revenues — area activists worry about endangered oil-field workers, environmental catastrophe, and an ongoing investment in emissions-generating fossil fuels extracted with a water-reliant method in the face of climate change. Since Santa Maria Energy came onto the scene, the company has been quick to differentiate itself from fracking, saying repeatedly that that process differs greatly from its own and, further, would be antagonistic to cyclic-steaming operations in general.“We already have a frackfree Santa Barbara County,” said Santa Maria Energy’s public and government affairs manager Bob Poole, who speculated that banning frack-

GET GEOLOGICAL: Diatomaceous earth sits closer to the surface than other formations — the Monterey shale, which is popular statewide for conventional drilling and fracking, is much farther underground — but its exact depths can vary by field. (Data and graphics courtesy of Santa Barbara County Energy Division)

Directly underneath the Careaga formation and well above the Sisquoc formation and Monterey shale, about 1,000 feet below the surface, lies diatomaceous earth, a porous rock popular in cat litter and pool filters. It also holds anywhere from 12 million to 80 billion barrels of very viscous oil statewide, with billions in Santa Barbara County. And because the rock prefers water to oil, the best way to get the oil out is to trade it for H₂O. The companies introduced water into steam, heating it up to 400550 degrees, and inject it — the “huff ” stage — into the ground at a pressure of approximately 1,200 pounds per square inch. If the days-long injection process is considered the first phase of the titular cycle, the soaking is step two. Over time, usually a matter of days, the heat works to thin the oil and release it from the pores, ready-

ing it to be pumped to the surface for the “puff,” the third and final stage that can go on for weeks. Wells can produce for about 30 years, but the oil-recovery factor with cyclic steaming resembles a bell curve, said Kevin Drude, the deputy director of the county’s Energy Division. In its first year of life, Drude said, a successful well would yield about 50 percent oil, a figure that could drop to 5 percent over time. Cyclic steaming’s separation from fracking and acidizing is twofold, Drude said. First, unlike those methods, it doesn’t break or dissolve the rock. Second, no chemicals are injected into the ground. But the use of the water itself — and the energy it takes to heat it — is where the environmental concerns come in. The process is much more “carbon intensive” than traditional drilling, which can emit a quarter of the emissions of a cyclic-steaming operation for the same number of wells. While pipelines for oil and water — as is the case with Santa Maria Energy’s project — can help reduce transportation-related emissions, the gas-powered steam generators required for the process can pump thousands of metric tons of carbon dioxide into the air. (Santa Maria Energy’s 136 wells will likely emit 88,000 metric tons annually, equivalent to the emissions from more than 18,000 cars.) Although none of the projects coming before the county have proposed to use groundwater for their operations — with the exception of Pacific Coast Energy Company, whose new 96 wells would require more than 1.3 million gallons from the company’s private water wells during construction — their use of non-potable recycled wastewater and the water brought up with the oil in conventional drilling has environmentalists worried. Santa Maria Energy’s project, for example, will receive about 300,000 gallons a day of the 2.4 million gallons of wastewater that the nearby sanitation district handles, most of which is used to irrigate crops and keep golf courses green. Next door, Pacific Coast Energy Company uses 300,000 gallons a day for its 96 wells, acquiring that water from the 3.5 million gallons it recovers from its traditional drilling activities. Many question whether the county should wed its resources, especially during extreme drought, to the oil industry, and question further whether there is enough of that wastewater and recovered water for hundreds of additional wells. Kevin Drude said the county has plenty of that type of water to go around: “There’s absolutely an abundance of it.”

LEAKS, SEEPS, AND SAFETY ISSUES?

With water also come worries that the wells could fail and leak into the water table, which sits about 200 feet below the surface but above the diatomite. Each well is lined by a casing and then surrounded by concrete, safeguards meant to minimize the oil’s escape, Drude said, adding that he has never heard a report of a groundwater issue in his years in the department. But that doesn’t mean it hasn’t happened elsewhere, said Assemblymember Das Williams, who recently took the reins in speaking on behalf of the Water Guardians. Williams cited a study showing that well cont’d page 17  june 26, 2014

Cyclic Steaming cont’d from p. 15

casings can fail sometimes, noting an incident in Alberta, Canada, where an aquifer and lake suffered contamination because of such a failure. Pointed to more than any other event is a 2011 tragedy in Kern County in which a field worker died after he ran toward a steam eruption and the ground gave way. That type of eruption, known as a “surface expression,” is man-made, Drude explained, distinguishing between those and seeps, which occur naturally but can be exacerbated by cyclic steaming. For the past year or so, seeps have dogged Pacific Coast Energy Company, which had to install 94 15-foot-long emergency seep cans — the company collects the oil and adds it to its yield — for its 96 wells. Jim Bray, the public and government affairs manager for Pacific Coast Energy Company, chalked the seeps up to basic geology. “Natural seeps have been occurring at Orcutt Hill for eons,” he said. “That’s why Mr. Orcutt came here.” The company has since worked with the state to decrease its seeps — and must come up with a plan to address seeps for its new project — by playing around with the temperature and pressure, Drude said. But environmental advocates allege it is that constant changing of temperature and pressure — which Drude likened to a balloon losing its helium — characteristic of cyclic steaming that can lead to problems, including shifts in the ground that can lead to leaks and surface expressions. The wells are designed to withstand such high pressures and temperatures, Drude explained, while cautioning that, like with everything else, adverse effects and accidents can always happen.“Nothing’s perfect,” he said. “Nothing’s 100 percent.”

In 2011, before Santa Maria Energy’s operations — projected to produce 3,300 barrels per day — were approved, Santa Barbara County’s cyclic-steaming operations accounted for about 1,700 barrels per day of the state’s 75,000 daily diatomite-sourced barrels, which was only a fraction of the 505,000 total barrels of oil sourced from the Golden State on a daily basis. Cyclic steaming has occurred in Santa Barbara County for years — Pacific Coast Energy Company’s original 96 wells were approved in 2006 — but Santa Maria Energy’s proposal was the largest such project to come before his department in years, Drude said.

across California and the county are only expected to increase, but the hundreds of wells proposed by area companies will hang in the balance of the ballot measure. Opponents of the ban contend that nixing future projects would also mean nixing future high-paying jobs in a poverty-rich North County (Santa Maria Energy employs 80 full-time staff and contractors; Pacific Coast Energy, about 250) and additional property-tax revenue for the county, which already scores more than $16 million from the industry. And threatening future projects, as this ban does, likewise threatens existing projects, Poole and Bray said, as their companies’ present plans depend on the future. But Linda Krop, chief counsel for the Environmental Defense Center, which is now co-representing the Water Guardians, said that argument doesn’t pass her sniff test. “If they’re making money off their existing operations, they’re going to continue pursuing those existing operations,” she said.

LEADERSHIP POSITION?

Where Poole said the industry is “being bludgeoned by misinformation,” the Water Guardians and its supporters say now is the time to act. Senate Bill , which aims to regulate fracking and acidizing (but not cyclic steaming) across the state, is “better than nothing,” Williams said, but not enough. Santa Barbara,“the birthplace of environmentalism,” Williams continued, could play a leadership role on this issue. “Our community is more important than increased drilling with dangerous techniques such as fracking, acidizing, and cyclic steam injection,” he said. Michael Chiacos of the Community Environmental Council, which has also come out in favor of the measure, acknowledged the argument used by industry officials — that oil is here to stay, and if it’s going to be produced, why not produce where the rules are strict? — but said the ban could point the county in a new direction. “Most of us drive, and it’s very easy to say, ‘No oil drilling in our backyard,’ but that oil has to come from somewhere,” Chiacos said. “We realize it’s really easy to say no to oil drilling; what’s harder is for people to say yes to alternatives to oil.” ■

Opinions FOR, BY, AND OF WHICH PEOPLE? Among the multitude of riddles long eluding my powers of comprehension is that ancient English proverb “You can’t have your cake and eat it, too.” If true, this raises the more immediate question, “Why the hell would you want to?” Over the years, I’ve scratched my head over this so many times my scalp is bloody. Given the visual blight inflicted, the Santa Barbara City Council is to be thanked for shining a little light on the matter, however inadvertently, at Tuesday’s council meeting. On the table was the pressing issue of district elections, a big hairy fur ball of a conundrum that’s been stuck perpetually in the craw of city government. Over the next many months, that loud, wet hacking sound you’ll be hearing is that of City Hall trying to expel this irritant from the back of its throat. For those suffering from Perpetual Alienation Syndrome where City Hall is concerned — and who doesn’t — district elections are a combination penicillin, panacea, and magic bullet all rolled into one. Ever since 1968, Santa Barbarians have been electing their mayor and city councilmembers “at large,” meaning all seven represent the entire city at large and all residents get to vote for who they want to occupy all seven seats. In practice, this has generally translated to mean government of the white people, by the white people, and for the white people. (Feel free to substitute the terms cracker, honky, pinche hueros, ofays, peckerwoods, or Caucasian-Americans if you prefer.) To illustrate this

Free Your Hounds from the Pound

point, only six nonwhite people have managed to get elected in the past 44 years. Given Santa Barbara’s obvious demographic realities, this picture is so pathetic that even perfectly rational explanations sound indistinguishable from lame excuses. That might be because, in fact, they are. The only solution, we are told, is district elections, in which councilmembers are elected by residents living in specific geographic districts to represent those areas on the council. Under this scenario, residents would be allowed to vote only for their own district representative as well as for their mayoral candidate, who would still represent all city residents “at large.” Normally, such election schemes are conversational fodder only for wonky malcontents and perhaps the League of Women Voters. But a couple of things have changed. First, the California Voting Rights Act was modified in recent years, making it exceptionally easy to demonstrate the existence of “racially polarized” voting patterns in cities with at-large elections and sizable Latino populations. To date, the only solution recognized by judges handling such lawsuits — and the numbers are growing — has been the imposition of district elections. Push came to shove earlier this year when attorney Barry Cappello — Santa Barbara’s most iconic legal barracuda — made it clear he intended to sue City Hall for violating the Voting Rights Act. Cappello has agreed to take the case “for free” in part because of his lifelong friendship with Leo Martinez, the curmudgeonly contrarian who was — as he point outs — the first Latino elected to the council in the 20th century. That

was 1973. Back then, Cappello was city attorney and Martinez — part of the new wave of reformers then seizing City Hall — declined to fire Cappello as many reformers had wanted. Martinez and the liberal, slow-growth, mushy good-government crowd soon parted ways. One theory is that Martinez balked at being anyone’s puppet. Another is that Martinez was flat-out impossible. I like Leo. But I also recognize if he were locked alone in a room, he’d pick a fight with himself. Ancient history and personality dynamics aside, two things are certain: If Cappello sues, he’ll win. And City Hall will have to pay his legal bills. The price tag I’m hearing hovers in the neighborhood of $1 million. This Tuesday, Councilmember Cathy Murillo got herself, Mayor Helene Schneider, and Councilmember Randy Rowse appointed to an ad hoc kumbaya committee to sit down with Cappello and his clients to see if anything can be worked out short of outright legal warfare. Their prospects appear slim. A few months ago, Mayor Schneider and Councilmember Bendy White suggested the possibility of a hybrid system in which half the council would be elected at large and half would represent districts. Cappello rejected it out of hand, stating the only good hybrid he knew of was a Prius. It was a nice zinger, but I’m hoping Barry and Leo reconsider. Why? We’ve been down this road before. Every 25 years or so — ever since Santa Barbara incorporated as a city in 1850 — we’ve been switching from at-large to districts and back again. City voters adopted the current at-large system in 1968 to express their disgust

with the district-elected councilmembers who voted to rezone what had long been bucolic dairy land to allow the development of what’s now La Cumbre Plaza. This was done over the objections of the councilmember representing that district. Shortly thereafter — under the atlarge system — the council was taken over by the slow-growth machine, which enacted broadsweeping policies designed to bring the city as a whole into environmental balance, while also spending gazillions making downtown a premier retail experience in response to the socalled “La Cumbre threat.” Have certain neighborhoods whose residents don’t vote suffered from less than benign neglect in the meantime? Indubitably. We’ve already done the all-or-nothing flipflop. Many times. Why don’t we try something different? The hybrid approach appears to offer the benefits of both systems, while mitigating some of the pick-your-poison corruptions to which either approach is susceptible. I’m betting the hybrid could actually win in an election. By contrast, any measure put to voters’ head by threat of a lawsuit is probably doomed. Should this hunch be borne out, what do Leo and Barry do for an encore? Sue the voters? Before we go down that rat hole, maybe they should sit down with the council’s kumbaya committee to see what can be done. To mark the occasion, maybe someone will bake a cake. Here’s hoping it’s one of those miraculous, mysterious confections that we can eat and have simultaneously. Otherwise, we’ll be seeing each other in court. — Nick Welsh

Katharin Mack Roberts passed away on June , , from a critical illness she battled for seven years, undaunted, with her customary grace, strength, sense of humor, and aplomb. Katie was born in Santa Monica, California, on September , . The daughter of the late Ann and Art Mack, Katie spent her childhood in La Cañada Flintridge and later graduated Phi Beta Kappa from Scripps College with a bachelor’s degree in Medieval Studies. After finishing her master’s degree, Katie was honored as Teaching Assistant of the Year while working on her doctorate at UCSB. She subsequently became a tenure-track professor of history at Williams College and later a teacher at Santa Barbara City College. Katie met Matt Roberts, her future husband, while in school in La Cañada, but it was their mutual interest in competitive swimming and diving that drew them together. For the past thirty-five years, Katie has lived in Carpinteria with her husband Matt on his family’s avocado ranch where they raised their two children, Aaron and

Claire Ann. Strong, funny, compassionate, sassy, bright, and upbeat, Katie had a multitude of interests, whether it be the beauty of a David Austin Rose, the Brahms’ Concerto in D for Violin, a small but formal Anglophile luncheon on her mother-in-law Claire’s deck to coincide with Prince William playing polo in a nearby field below, or a brandnew copy of a yet-unreleased Louise Penny novel that a friend coaxed from a publisher just before Katie passed away. Katie could take up and pass along a new recipe for minestrone with sweet sausage and tortellini with the same enthusiasm and thoroughness she applied to her telling of Harold Godwinson’s oath-swearing to Duke William, the future Conqueror and King of England, in the Bayeux Tapestry. Her recall of people, places and dates remains legendary. In her pursuit of right, Katie was a tireless volunteer and activist in Carpinteria politics, education, the environment, and the community. She was an active board member of the Carpinteria Valley Association and, later, Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs, the nonprofit that formed in  to lead, in partnership with the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County, the challenging but successful public acquisition efforts of the Carpinteria Bluffs. Following that success, Katie was the driving force each year on offering every rd grader in the Carpinteria School District the opportunity to visit the Carpinteria Bluffs as part of a Citizens for the Carpinteria Bluffs Earth Day. In , she became President of the Citizens group. She was also an active parent volunteer at Aliso School, where she was involved with the Battle of the Books program; at Friends of VADA supporting the Visual Arts & Design Academy of Santa Barbara High School; and at the Santa Barbara Middle School, where she worked in the Deli, wrote and edited the Scoop, coordinated food for Songfest, and worked in the library, once running it for two weeks to enable the librarian to be with her daughter while her granddaughter was born. Katie’s primary love and focus was her family.

In Memoriam

Proudly Introducing...

Eva Landecker Menkin 1923-2014

E

Therapist, Writer, Tennis Enthusiast, Proprietor of the Menkin Motel

Fuchs Landecker Menkin was born in Berlin on June 26, 1923. Her many names are just one indicator of her extraordinary life. Eva welcomed friends and relatives from around the world to her Riviera home, nicknamed the Menkin Motel, with warm hospitality, wonderful food, and great conversation. A loving and understanding mother and grandmother, she was the loving wife to two men, each for more than 30 years. An avid tennis player and patron of art, classical music, and opera, Eva was also an accomplished gardener and an insightful observer of human affairs, a pioneering therapist, an avid reader, and an accomplished author, speaker, and thinker. Born Eva Mirjam Zacharias, she was the daughter of Tamara (Té) Gornitsky and Kurt Zacharias, Jewish intellectuals in the avantgarde scene of Roaring Twenties Berlin, but whose marriage ended shortly after her birth. Eva attended elementary school in Spain after her mother married a German baron, Freiherr von Fritsch, who had rejected his family’s elevated status for life in an art colony on the island of Ibiza. When that marriage also failed, Eva returned to Berlin into the care of her grandparents. Thankfully, Té believed, much earlier than most, that Germany was a dangerous place for both herself and Eva, and after fighting a nasty battle to recover custody, moved with Eva to Paris. When Eva was 10, her mother married Henry Fuchs, who, although also a German Jew, had acquired American citizenship and sponsored their emigration to the U.S. After a terrible ocean crossing, Té and Henry were married on Ellis Island. He was a wonderful man who adopted Eva and remained married to her mother, and close to Eva’s family, until his death 52 years later. At 14, Eva met her future husband Fred Landecker, also a Jewish immigrant from Germany. At 19, after Fred was drafted into the U.S. Army, Eva left school at the University of Michigan to visit him in California, and they were married in the women’s lounge of the Army USO. While Fred was fighting overseas, Eva worked in Medford, Oregon, and then at the Pentagon for the last two years of WWII. When Fred finally returned home, they chose to live in California, and they soon bought their first home on the GI Bill. Shortly after the war, Eva took a daring solo trip to Argentina to meet her biological father and her 10-year-old half-brother, René. For the next 65 years, despite the distance from Buenos Aires to Santa Barbara, René and Eva acted like the closest of siblings, meeting regularly and creating deep relationships with each other’s spouses, children, and friends. In the late 1940s, Henry convinced Fred to start a company to pioneer a new process for improving the durability of metal aircraft panels (shot peening). Eva was the original support

staff, doing everything needed to help get the start-up off the ground. As the Metal Improvement Company became a success, opening facilities across the country and then internationally, it and the Landecker family moved their headquarters to New Jersey. In 1948, Eva and Fred adopted Judy, born three months prematurely, weighing only one pound, 12 ounces. Three years later, Eva was shocked to learn, after an operation, that she was already pregnant with David. Six years later, Anita was born, and after three more years, Peter arrived. While raising four children, Eva continually wrote books, stories, and poetry. In the late 1960s, she began working for Rutgers University, developing an innovative program about successful aging. Fascinated with the subject, she completed her BA and MA degrees through Goddard College in Vermont. At age 50, she began a successful career as a marriage and family therapist that defined the next 30 years of her life. After moving to Santa Barbara in 1975, Eva coauthored Aging Is a Lifelong Affair with psychiatrist Ben Weininger and later wrote about her youth in A Moving Experience. After she retired from private practice, she continued counseling as a volunteer at Garden Court and at the Homeless Women’s Clinic until just weeks before her death. In 1974, Eva married David “Bud” Menkin, and together they nurtured a blended family of Bud’s two sons and Eva’s four children. Eva became “Ema” to her 11 grandchildren, René’s kids, and their friends. Each was lovingly shaped and supported by their generous and engaging spirit and their love of the gardens, beautiful mountain views, family barbeques, and the swimming pool at their home on Mission Ridge Road. Bud succumbed to complications from Parkinson’s disease in 2007 after more than 30 happy years together. Eva was an accomplished tennis player and played at least twice a week until just a month before her death, from complications of kidney cancer. She would have turned 91 this week but never looked or acted her age. She lived her life fully every day, and she inspired her family and many friends to do the same. ■

Get Out of (North County) Jail Card

C

urrent unfunded county liabilities include $828 million for retirements, $300 million for deferred maintenance, and untold millions for a proposed North County jail. The present South County jail is crowded only because it is stacked with 80 percent pretrial detainees. Twenty percent of this jail population is sentenced offenders. Experts point out that these populations include, disproportionately, minorities and poor, especially those with substance abuse, mental problems, and social/occupational challenges, none of which yield to wholesale warehousing. Our South County jail has a 70 percent recidivism/ rearrest rate now. Do we want to expand our jail capacity? In 2000, Santa Barbara County voters defeated Measure U (to fund a North County jail) by 61 percent versus 39 percent. Voters defeated Measure S — also for that jail — in 2010 by the same margin. After two decisive votes that rejected funding for the proposed jail, why is a resuscitated North County jail about to appear? Does the will of the voters in this supposedly democratic county mean nothing to our supervisors? In the U.S.A., one in every 32 individuals (3.2 percent) is enmeshed in our iffy justice system (probation, parole, incarceration). No other country comes even close. But across the U.S. today, jurisdictions at all levels are reducing — not expanding — sentences. Our cash-strapped county should jettison what it can— Joe Cain, S.B. not maintain.

Boo, Solstice

P

acing has always been an issue with the homegrown, deliberately unpolished Solstice Parade. Past years overcame this shortcoming with inventive floats, energetic dancers, and the whole “let’s put on a show” vibe. But this year, the snail-like pace, creative sloppiness, and lack of organization caused spectators to say Solstice 2014 was a dud — tedious, self-satisfied, boring. As usual, the start time was a solid 30-45 minutes behind schedule. At about the 90-minute mark, after the umpteenth embarrassing lack of activity between floats, many began to amble away, their patience taken for granted. As a valuable community asset that draws around

100,000 visitors and generates millions of dollars, Solstice should be brisk, loud, colorful, fun, and, yes, a little naughty and edgy. Perhaps it’s time to institute a committee of concerned citizens with the drive and organizational skills necessary to return Solstice to its former glory? — Steve Bonser, S.B.

Desal Now

W

ith the alarming drought issues plaguing our state, we commend the City Council for taking preemptive action by looking into reopening the old desalination plant. This kind of forward thinking is needed to tackle the drought head-on. The desal plant originally could produce half of the city’s annual water usage. Since we live in a desert, if we could reliably supply half of our water, why shouldn’t we go forward with desalination? Many opponents say desalination is too costly. However, we California residents have lived through too many water emergencies. The cost of running out of water is higher than any cost of desalination.

A Real Victory

M

y recent congressional primary campaign was an amazing ride. I met wonderful people throughout three counties and made friendships that will last the rest of my life. My travels also deepened my belief that we on the Central Coast are lucky to live in one of the world’s most beautiful places. Most important, I found that there are people all over this district who are passionate about the promise of America and who are standing up for their beliefs. While the election results were not what I had hoped, knowing that I got Nick Welsh’s vote was a real victory. In my next run for office, perhaps I can convince Nick to be the chairman of my “Indy Staffers for Francisco” committee? — Dale Francisco, S.B.

the nation’s top authority on the U.S. Supreme Court, favors television coverage of the court and limited terms. “It’s really wrong,” he told me in a phone interview, that only a lucky few — such as lawyers, the press, and a limited number of the public — can hear oral arguments on crucial issues that affect people’s lives in so many ways. But justices have long opposed TV coverage, fearing among other things that some on the court would be “grandstanding.” They’re already grandstanding, said Tribe, who will be speaking at the New Vic on Friday, June 27, at 5 p.m., sponsored by Antioch University, the County Bar Association, and the Legal Aid Foundation. It’s free. Justices want to preserve their anonymity in public, but that’s not a good enough reason to ban TV, he said. But the Supreme Court makes its own rules. Tribe, a Harvard Law School professor and author of a new book, Uncertain Justice: The Roberts Court and the Constitution, which he wrote with Joshua Matz, also favors limited terms for justices instead of the present lifetime appointments. He proposed nonrenewable 18-year terms, staggered so that a president would have two appointments. Court critics have long favored limited terms, in part to assure new blood on the bench.

SCIENCE-FAIR BUDS: Gabe Rosenhouse (left) and Brian Jaffe used to test the speed of sound for science fairs in middle school. Today, they’re perfecting the Printeer, one of the most innovative 3D printers on the planet, all from Jaffe’s Mission Street garage.

S

chool just got out for summer, but last Monday morning, a bunch of kids were back in Santa Barbara High’s robotics lab, eyes wide open, grins ear to ear, brains working in overdrive as they explored the possibilities of 3d printing. They weren’t new to the technology — it was, after all, a summer camp dedicated to learning about this fastest-growing segment of high-tech hardware — but this was the first time they, or really anyone, had ever seen the Printeer, the world’s first model developed solely to educate and inspire adolescents and teens. Compared to existing 3d printers — which tend to be either very expensive, very slow, very technical, or a very dangerous-looking mess of robotics and wires that you must build yourself (or all of the above) — the Printeer is a sleek, smart blend of colorful hardware and easy-to-use software that takes whatever you sketch on an iPad, kicks it into three dimensions, and then, laying miniscule layer upon miniscule layer of eco-friendly plastic, prints your solid object within about 15 minutes. And all that for the current price of only $550 per printer, compared to the $1,000-$2,000 fetched for popular mass-market versions, which still require an advanced understanding of design programs. Though now attracting the attention of educators from Japan to Egypt as well as nabbing headlines on newspapers

Mission Street Manufacturing, Santa Barbara’s 3D Printing Start‐up by Matt Kettmann photos by paul wellman

and influential tech websites across the globe, the Printeer is not another success story out of the Silicon Valley. It was developed on Santa Barbara’s Westside by a startup company called Mission Street Manufacturing, which was founded almost exactly one year ago by 30-year-old Brian Jaffe, a Portland-raised, Princeton-educated engineer who served five years in the U.S. Navy. “We’re not joking when we say

kids get excited,” said Jaffe last Monday in the lab, smiling at the swarm of children buzzing around him as one teenager’s big-headed, cartoony design came out of the machine.“This is what I live for.” Apparently, Jaffe is not the only one. On June 10 of this year, Mission Street Manufacturing unveiled the Printeer via the fundraising website Kickstarter, hoping to raise $50,000 in one month to build the first 100 printers in the Mission Street garage. Almost immediately, the campaign annihilated the target, eclipsing the $50,000 in just eight days and, as of press time, raising more than $100,000. And there’s still two weeks to go. To Jaffe, the global excitement speaks to the just-beingtapped power of the technology.“As humans, we’ve gotten extremely good at making machines that just do one thing,” he said, explaining the disruptive nature of his work.“With 3d printing, we have one machine to make an infinite number of possible things.”

Dream Realizer After graduating from Princeton in 2006, Jaffe joined the Navy as an officer because he didn’t want a desk job but wanted to put his degree in aerospace and mechanical engineering to work in a more adventurous setting. Soon after june 26, 2014

Heroes Printeer isn’t the only Santa Barbara project idea to soar on Kickstarter. Here are some other ideas that reached their funding goals through the crowd-funding site:

• Toad the Wet Sprocket: Rock band.

EXCITED EYES: At a recent EduCraft summer camp in the robotics lab of Santa Barbara High, Rosenhouse (far left, and top inset below, from 8th grade) and Joe Kimmel (red shirt) showed off the Printeer to smiling schoolkids. Jaffe, whose mug shot from 8th grade is also below, believes the technology is inspiring and empowering.

leaving the service in 2011, Jaffe was back home in Portland attending a legendary Hanukkah party thrown every year by the parents of his friend Gabe Rosenhouse, whom he’d kept in touch with since middle school when they partnered science fair projects (8th grade example: testing the speed of sound through various temperatures and gases). Jaffe shared his dreams of starting a 3d printer company with Rosenhouse, who was then working on a graduate degree in neuroscience from the University of Chicago; they kept the conversation going while Jaffe spent a brief six months in business school at MIT. By the spring of 2013, Jaffe had dropped out, and he convinced Rosenhouse to leave Chicago and move to a home in Santa Barbara near the corner of Mission and Chino streets, which Jaffe had purchased as an investment property years earlier with some inheritance money. “It was still just a vague notion then,” recalled Jaffe.“Hey, let’s go to California and build something for the summer!” Jaffe’s vision quickly crystallized into a 3d printer that was aimed at K-12 schools and their teachers and students, who he believed would be inspired both intellectually and creatively by the beforeyour-eyes process as they learned valuable engineering techniques, as well, particularly iteration, where small tweaks are made repeatedly to reach a final goal. “Kids absolutely love 3d printing — it’s like the next closest thing to magic,” he told me last year, when the Printeer wasn’t much more than scribbles on butcher paper hanging off his living room walls. Last week, he equated the experience to his science fairs with Rosenhouse, explaining, “If we hadn’t been making crazy apparati since middle school, we wouldn’t have had the confidence to do this.” So starting in June 2013, they assembled a team of college interns from Cal Poly and UCSB and eventually enlisted the full-time services of mechanical engineer Joe Marino (who just got his graduate degree from Cal Poly this month) and software designer Joe Kimmel (one of Gabe’s friends from Oberlin University in Chicago). The West Mission Street home suddenly morphed into a stereotypical start-up headquarters — every square foot both a bedroom and office, canned food for dinner, an extra Airstream in the driveway, an AstroTurf

putting green out back. Jaffe dumped his own savings into the project and also asked for money from family and friends, amounting to six figures of funding. The company name came naturally, as did the logo: a white, three-dimensional castle image based on the City of Santa Barbara’s official flag. The summer went well, but then the interns left, and Rosenhouse was supposed to go back to Chicago, as well. Luckily, said Jaffe, he had “caught the fever.” Explained Rosenhouse, “I stayed because of the business we were in, the people we were working with, and, frankly, the town. This was a nice place to move to from Chicago.” Nonetheless, they admitted it was “a little scary” that fall, with just two people on a massive project. By January, they’d developed the stylish shell and the software basics, but the prints kept coming out wispy. “We’re making a printer for kids, so we didn’t need micron precision, but there was a bar,” said Rosenhouse, pointing to a wispy blue chess piece as evidence of those “dark times” and explaining, “It couldn’t look like that.” One of their professors/advisors from Cal Poly connected them with Marino, and he tackled the toughest challenges in what he described casually as a “weekend project,” explaining, “This kind of stuff is my bread and butter.” Come February, the Printeer was sailing toward reality, and by the spring, Mission Street Manufacturing accomplished what many start-ups never do: delivering their concept, almost exactly as envisioned, and on their self-imposed, one-year deadline. Kickstarter was the obvious next step, said Jaffe, who believes the site is to 3d printing as Nashville’s iconic Bluebird Café is to country music.“You don’t have to go to the Bluebird Café to be a country music star,” said Jaffe, “but why wouldn’t you?” By the robotics lab session last Monday, the Kickstarter money was rolling in, Bloomberg, Mashable, and Engadget were covering the release, and distributors from Singapore and Australia to Switzerland and Turkey were calling. That afternoon, Jaffe finally got to shave off the “product beard” he grew when they delivered the first three Printeers to La Cumbre Junior High, Mission Street Manufacturing’s first official customer. “It feels great,” said the freshly shaven Jaffe.“I’m incred-

Start‐up’s Second Step This summer, despite the resounding, if early, success, the scene at the two-story, West Mission Street, Craftsman-style bungalow hasn’t changed much. There’s still butcher paper on the walls, laptops and computer screens in every room, the smell of coffee in the kitchen, and a manila envelope hanging from the freezer that reads: “Mini pizzas and tamales. $1 each. Thank you!” A yellow lab named Layla roams the property these days, and an inflatable red dinosaur hangs from the second-floor balcony, the same one that software expert Kimmel saw at his last start-up in Chicago. Out back, a Ping-Pong table has taken over the putting green, and the Airstream is gone, but outdoor housing still exists.“We make minor sacrifices,” said Marino pointing to his “room” behind the garage.“It’s actually a pretty nice tent.” The biggest difference, however, is in the garage, which Marino morphed into a professional-grade, albeit small, fac-

tory for Printeers. There are 15 stations with color-coded workspaces and tools, each calculated to take roughly the same amount of time, ideally adding up to about eight hours per finished Printeer. That’s where the current team of 14 people — which now includes four students from Dos Pueblos High’s Engineering Academy, who Jaffe called the “smartest kids in Santa Barbara,” and five imports from Chicago universities, including their first marketing intern — is hard at work building the more than 160 Printeers that have been promised to backers of the Kickstarter campaign. More critically, they are perfecting the manufacturing process and documenting it thoroughly along the way so it can be easily moved to a bigger factory one day. Meanwhile, inside the house, Kimmel is leading the software team as they scale up the software in anticipation of exponential user growth in the months to come. And the search for serious, seven-figure investments never stops, money that will be needed to take Printeer to the next level. “We need capital,” said Jaffe, “but it would mostly be for more people.” That’s because Jaffe has strategically kept costs quite low, opting for a $10,000 laser cutter to build the frames instead of the $200,000 mold-injection machine. The raw materials are basically just metal rods and bearings, the acrylic sheets for the casing, and the plastic filament for all of the fittings and gears. And guess what makes the filament into the finished pieces? Yup, a bank of 3d printers that rely on computer-aided design, or CAD, software. “It’s amazing that a young company like us can make parts this complex,” said Jaffe, holding the Printeer’s “slider” that took 25 versions and about three weeks to perfect, compared to the tens of thousands of dollars and months it would have required to get it machined in the traditional way.“It’s only because of 3d printing.”

“We’re gonna 3d print houses, we’re gonna 3d print organs, we’re gonna 3d print food, and we’re gonna 3d print moonbases if we ever go back to the moon,” said Jaffe. The strongest evidence to him is that there are 1,000 other companies around the world like Mission Street Manufacturing building their own 3d printing technology: small, resultsdriven, and full of smart, impassioned, and even idealistic young people. And unlike many other recent hightech histories, the industry is not being led by a handful of corporations, so evolution hapt pens quickly without bureaucracy or budgets b getting in the way. “I’m an evangelist — I love the technology, and I think it’s gonna change the world,” admitted Jaffe, as the laser cutter hummed behind him and Dos Pueblos students put together the fourth Printeer ever made.“But I’m not blowing smoke either. The train has left the station, and it’s not slowing down.” v

The Promise of

3d Printing Despite that glimpse of what this technology enables, 3d printing still hovers in mainstream minds as a cool yet somewhat ancillary concept — a fun way, we think, to make more plastic crap. Because the focus is on educating and inspiring K-12 students about engineering and technology in general, the Printeer jumps that hurdle straight out of the gate, but Jaffe makes no bones about how influential he believes 3d printing will become in the years to come.

The whistles are the smallest registered instrument, consisting of a half-circle piece of plastic that you put in your mouth to make a plethora of really, really loud noises.

Event

Free Floral Finds

A bundle of flowers tend to brighten anyone’s day. Why, then, are the aromatic treats generally reserved for special occasions? According to the global initiative The Lonely Bouquet, they don’t have to be. For the second year in a row, the movement is having its (inter)National Lonely Bouquet Day. Here’s how it works: Pluck flowers from your garden, arrange said flora in a wee recycled jar, pop a “Take Me” sign around the bunch, and then leave the gift in a public space for someone to find. But why do it alone? Folks in Santa Barbara can come together at a Lonely Bouquet–making event this weekend where floral studio ella & louie will have blooms to purchase and help with arrangements, and the letterpress gurus Tabletop Made will have “adoption” tags available. All you need to bring is an old vase or jar. The event happens Sunday, June 29, 11 a.m. - 2 p.m., at Municipal Winemakers, 22 Anacapa Street. For more information, call 931-6864 or visit lonelybouquet.com. — Michelle Drown

June is the time for many things, such as Solstice, the World Cup, and Bloomsday. It also bears the distinction of being Adopt-a-Cat month. With the spring came loads of kittens, and now area shelters are bursting with adorable fluffy felines looking for homes. To encourage folks to add a four-legged (or two) to their family, the Santa Barbara Humane Society is offering a reduced adoption fee of $44 throughout June. A slew of services come with the low price, including spay or neuter surgery, vaccinations, microchip and registration, a temperament evaluation, and a cardboard cat carrier. The Humane Society is located at 5399 Overpass Road. For more information, call 964-4777 or visit sbhumanesociety.org. — MD

Once I met someone who taught me how to use the tools, it was just a matter of time before we started this,” said Anthony Valadez while working on a leather cuff bracelet at his booth at the Solstice Festival. Valadez is coowner of T&A Leather, which has been upcycling found and donated scraps of leather into trendy adornments for the past two years.

“I have a fractured back, and when I get in the warm water, I get relief,” said 102-year-old Clarence Agress. The healing 91-degree pool Agress soaks in is located in the former Diver’s Den (22 Anacapa St.), which has been transformed into the Muller Aquatic Center, where aquatic certified, licensed therapists perform “miracles,” according to participants now functioning at a level they never thought possible.

ometimes it seems as though happiness in life and success in business are mutually exclusive. However, in her book The Happiness Choice, Marilyn Tam describes how success in both is not only possible but a necessity. As a person who overcame childhood adversity and went on to become the CEO of Aveda Corp, the president of Reebok Apparel and Retail Group, and vice president of Nike Inc., Tam provides insights into the best ways to cultivate happiness. While full of information and containing exercises to complete at the end of each chapter, the book is also entertaining and easy to read. Tam uses the examples and experiences of real people, such as Jack Canfield, to illustrate the precepts that lead to happiness. She also brings in statistics, scientific research, and practices from different cultures and religions to illustrate the ways to lead a meaningful life. Tam herself had to learn how to find happiness. She was the second daughter in a traditional Chinese family living in Hong Kong. She writes, “To say that I was unwanted would be an understatement — my mother left me in the hospital and had to be called to pick me up.” Each chapter focuses on a different aspect of happiness. Tam talks about relationships, diet and exercise, our perceptions of money, and spiritual well-being, among other things. However, she said that successful relationships are essential to happiness. As a high-powered executive, she was often away from her family, but she incorporated them into what she was doing by calling them, updating them on her schedule, sending cards, and in other ways making sure they knew they were important. “The most important things are your family and your relationships,” she writes. According to Tam, happiness in business also comes from blending monetary success with helping humanity. She uses the example of Santa Barbaran Howard Schiffer, a successful businessperson who one day realized that he was not fulfilled. He had been involved in prenatal education and the natural health industry and worked as an entrepreneur but wanted to give back in a substantial way. He eventually used his diverse experiences to launch Vitamin Angels, a company that supplies micronutrient supplements to malnourished and undernourished children throughout the world. Tam said, “It’s not just about working hard; it’s about making a difference.” For the full review, see independent .com/happinesschoice. — Cat Neushul

How to Maximize Yield and Minimize Space

here are many factors affecting gardening successfully and, most importantly these days, efficiently. For most, water is scarce, but the desire to grow a garden is still strong. Just how much water to budget for the garden will determine how big the garden can be and, thus, how many plants it can support. The best way to tackle this conundrum is with a bit of math. Don’t worry, it’s easy. Read on. The first question to answer is just how much can one plant — tomato, squash, bean, whatever — produce in a season? Of course the yield will vary with the usual unknowns, like sunshine (will it be foggy this summer?), soil fertility, pest invasions, and more. It may be useful to keep a journal to track just what the household can consume. One simple list is available at harvesttotable.com (there appears to be a book, too, if you want a hard copy to consult). There are others such as the helpful table at Growing Vegetable Gardens (growingvegetablegardens .com). Many seed packets may also indicate this type of information. And Internet searches will reveal much more. Again, experience will make the difference, and each year can bring a finer-tuned garden plan. To grow the chosen-few plants well, but in the minimum space they require, is just another matter of planning. The key is to place plants in relation to each other that allows for maximum space for their mature size. When plants are allowed adequate root space and don’t have to compete above ground for light and air, they will thrive. Well-spaced plants require less irrigation and fertilizer and will consistently produce a premium crop. Luckily for buyers, most seed packets and plant labels contain all the information needed to provide adequate advice on plant spacing. The trick is to imagine a plot of garden that is as closely packed as the plants require without wasting precious space anywhere. A grid will be much more efficient than rows with lost space between, for example.

CROP SPOT: Square-foot gardening allows for folks with space constraints to create small but intensive gardens.

If the label says plants should be spaced six inches apart, divide the available plot into a grid that staggers those plants to take advantage of the space between plants in one row with plants offset in the next row. Honeybees are masters of maximizing this sort of spatial arrangement, so think honeycomb if that helps. There are online resources to help you visualize this and even a nifty calculator to do the math. Check out mysquarefootgarden.net for great diagrams on gardens large and small. GardenWeb (faq.gardenweb.com) also has some lists of common veggies and herbs with suggestions for ideal placement. The Landscape Calculator at landscapecalculator.com has plant spacing information and a calculator that produces desired results simply by plugging in information specific to the plant in question. This site also can help with calculating how much mulch to buy or acquire for a certain size plot, including a cover of stones. Efficiency and water conservation are on everyone’s minds. Here are some tools to use in the garden to maximize those efforts.

Charitable Charity

Birth of the Family Service Agency

O

rganized charities were somewhat of a rare commodity in the Santa Barbara of the late 19th century. In the first 100 years of the city’s history, the downtrodden largely looked to the Catholic church or their extended family for aid. By the 1890s, however, a need was perceived for an organization that would facilitate and coordinate charitable efforts in Santa Barbara. The result was the founding of Associated Charities in 1899 (the organization officially became Family Service Agency in 1953). This first social-service organization in S.B. County elected Mrs. E.C. Tallant as its first president. The group was to help those in financial distress help themselves; it would not simply throw money at the problem of pauperism. The agency always first investigated a family’s need. Money was rarely given; more often, food, clothing, or wood to be used for fuel was dispensed. One example of an early program was the Family Milk Fund. This was more than just about getting milk to

children in poor families; it also gave advice on proper diet and family budgeting, tools that families could use to help pull themselves out of their difficulties. Local charitable work was further coordinated when Associated Charities moved its headquarters to the Arellanes adobe at 800 Santa Barbara Street in 1910. Joining it there was the Neighborhood House Association, which aimed to curb juvenile delinquency, primarily through recreational activities. The work of Associated Charities continued to expand — six families had received aid in 1899; in 1920, 345 families were assisted. Education played an ever-larger role in the agency’s programs in the 1920s. Sewing classes were held and the clothes sold in the agency shop. Cooking classes and such mundane subjects as proper housecleaning were also offered, as were English classes, all aimed to allow families to better cope. Many of the classes were run through Santa Barbara State Teachers College. Affordable housing was addressed by the agency’s Building Fund, which offered low-interest home loans. The Depression of the 1930s posed serious challenges for socialservice organizations. Associated Charities attempted to address both unemployment and want by hiring men to cut wood, repair shoes, and grow vegetables, all of which were then delivered to needy families. The fruits of the sewing classes were now distributed by the agency’s Clothing Bureau, which in 1933 passed out some 57,000 garments. As government agencies began to move into employment programs and relief, Associated Charities returned to education with programs such as Mother-Child Workshops, which taught the elements of good parenting. Family Service Agency is still a major force in social service today. Its programs offer a wide variety of assistance, and it continues to play an important role in the coordination of aid to the less fortunate of Santa — Michael Redmon Barbara County. june 26, 2014

World Cup Update

Californian Chris Wondolowski Helps the U.S. Keep On Keeping On in the Group of Death

P

ortugal’s desperate game-tying goal Sunday stunned U.S. soccer fans, who were seconds away from celebrating a significant victory and a ticket to the World Cup Round of 16. But once the numbness wore off, Mike Wondolowski found himself savoring the prospect of another thrilling match, even at the risk of having his heart broken. Ever since his nephew Chris Wondolowski became a professional soccer player — and is now a member of the U.S. team competing in Brazil — Mike has been fascinated by the twists and turns of the sport. He and his wife, Diane, made a trek from their Carpinteria home to join seven other members of the Wondolowski family in Brazil. They have followed the national team from the jungle at Manaus to its training base in São Paulo, and on to the Thursday (June 26) showdown with Germany at the port city of Recife. The U.S. needs a victory or a tie to be assured of reaching the World Cup’s knockout stage next week. “I am looking forward to the Germany game, both as an excited fan and as a nervous family member,” Wondolowski said in an email message Monday.“It would have been great to guarantee an escape from the Group of Death last night. But now the U.S. has a chance to do it against Germany. That would be a great way to do it!” Chris Wondolowski’s approach to soccer reflects his uncle’s enthusiasm.“He’s an opti-

TICO TRIUMPH: Ovidio Mora, a dual citizen of the U.S. and Costa Rica, had a familiar sensation when Portugal’s last-minute goal stung millions of fans across America.“Now you know how we felt,” Mora said, speaking as a Costa Rican. He recalled the last round of qualifying for the 2010 World Cup. Costa Rica needed a win over the U.S. to secure the region’s last berth, and it had a 2-1 lead as the match went into stoppage time. It ended in a 2-2 tie after a U.S. header in the 95th minute. As a result, Honduras displaced Costa Rica from the big show in South Africa. Four years later, Costa Rica qualified for Brazil but was virtually written off when it was drawn into the first round against four past champions — Uruguay, Italy, and England.“It was like,‘Costa Rica’s in the World Cup?’” Mora said. He is a frequent denizen of the Press Room, the Santa Barbara pub that is populated by European football partisans. They know “Ovi” as a man of good cheer, a disposition characteristic of Ticos (natives of Costa Rica). These days, Mora is ecstatic. Costa Rica defeated Uruguay (which did not use Luis Suárez, soccer’s Hannibal Lecter, in the opening match) and Italy and tied a downtrodden England to finish first in the group. Mexico also has reached the Round of 16, and the U.S. hopes to join its neighbors. Mora, 50, grew up on a coffee farm near the town of Nicoya.“We had no electricity, no indoor plumbing,” he said. “But we had soccer. I wasn’t very good at it.” He was good at running, having clocked a 2:15 marathon, and he competed in many U.S. road races after moving in with relatives in Florida. A running friend invited him to Santa Barbara 18 years ago. He met his future wife, Karen, at Nite Moves, and now he works with her at the bookkeeping firm Accountability Plus. Press Room owner James Rafferty said the flags of all 32 nations in the World Cup will be auctioned off, with the proceeds going to a fund for victims of Isla Vista violence. You’ll have to outbid Ovi Mora to snag the Costa Rican red, white, and blue. PAUL WELLMAN

a turnover by Michael Bradley, a lagging defense, a brilliant pass by Cristiano Ronaldo, and a header by Silvestre Varela, wiped out the lead. Wondolowski’s presence on the team is a great American success story. He grew up in the East Bay not far from Livermore, the hometown of his father, three uncles, and two aunts.“Livermore is the bread basket of soccer in the area,” said Mike, a computer engineer who started his career in Goleta three decades ago.“We all played soccer, in addition to baseball, softball, football, and basketball.” The next generation was versatile, too. “Chris played baseball on a Danville team that won the PONY League World Series,” Mike said.“He was a track star in high school. My brother John played soccer at UC Berkeley, so it’s not surprising Chris took up the sport. But he didn’t play on any youth national teams. He didn’t get driven hundreds of miles to play in soccer tournaments.” Chris, ignored by major-college recruiters, attended Division II Chico State and made enough of an impression to be taken in the late rounds of the MLS draft by the San Jose Earthquakes in 2005. Five years later, after the club had moved to Houston and traded him back to a new San Jose franchise, Wondolowski’s prowess blossomed. He won the Golden Boot as the MLS high scorer with 18 goals in 2010, and he scored a record-tying 27 goals in 2012, when he was named the league’s MVP. “It’s weird to drive to the Bay Area and see Chris’s face on a billboard,” Mike Wondolowski said.“He grew up following the Raiders, and now they are wishing him good luck in promos. He threw out the first pitch in an A’s game.” Chris’s wife, Lindsey, and six-month-old daughter, Emersyn, are also in Brazil. “These U.S. players are just a bunch of regular guys with supportive and loving families,” Mike observed.“They just happen also to be great in soccer.” And this month, they are taking the nation on a tour through the joys and sorrows of their sporting lives.

mist,” said Mike, whose older brother John is Chris’s father.“He never gives up. He looks ahead and sees what good outcome can happen. He’s not fast, but he makes runs when the defense doesn’t expect it and achieves separation. He follows every shot when nobody else does, so when it’s that one-of-50 times that the goalie bobbles the ball, he’s there to nudge it in.” Chris made his World Cup debut in the late minutes of the Portugal game. He was the lone American forward, replacing Clint Dempsey. He wasn’t there to score but to help the U.S. protect its 2-1 lead by retaining possession.“Wondo,” as he is called, did his job, making several forays down the pitch. But a generous five minutes of stoppage time,

FOOD-AND-DRINK FUN

GUIDE TO GREAT EVENTS THIS WEEKEND AND BEYOND by Matt Kettmann and David Ridings

I

f you’re a food, wine, or beer lover, the hardest part about this coming weekend — indeed, this whole summer — is choosing what not to do. Here’s a brief rundown on this weekend’s happenings, and a brief primer on what else to expect in the months ahead.

BUTTONWOOD’S 19TH ANNUAL RED, WHITE & BLUES Headlined by legendary guitarist Coco Montoya and also featuring the tunes of Santa Barbara’s Stiff Pickle Orchestra, we asked co-presenting vintner and Central Coast wine-country pioneer Richard Longoria to pair some of Coco’s songs with his wines.

“Nothing’s Too Good for My Baby”: He wants

only the best for his baby, so his wine of choice would be the Blues Cuvée. “Cool Like Dat”: Coco’s rousing swing-dance instrumental is just for fun, and so is our Hoo Doo Red, which doesn’t take itself seriously and just lets it all hang out. “Sending Me Angels”: A sweet song about how a woman or women bring comfort when a man gets the blues, I dedicate this to my wife, Diana; daughter Sarah; and granddaughter June and recommend Cuvée Diana and Cuvée June. (No wine yet named for Sarah.) Saturday, June 28, 2-6 p.m., Buttonwood Farm Vineyard, buttonwoodwinery.com/events.html, 688-3032, $35-$40, benefiting Arts Outreach

WHISKEY WISDOM The Imperial is the recently opened, down-the-street, cocktailserving sister of Old Town Goleta’s craft beer mecca, the Mercury Lounge, and this Saturday hosts the first of what will hopefully become a series on spirits. The Bottled-in-Bond Whiskey Tasting will be led by UCSB-educated historian Paul Hirsch and include tasting some of the only bottled-in-bond bourbons and rye whiskeys available. Sat., June 28, 3 p.m., The Imperial, $50 (cash only)

FIRST-EVER HOPTOPIA Certified Cicerone Zach Rosen is doing his darnedest to fire up the intellectual side of Santa Barbara’s suds scene, and this Saturday’s Hoptopia Beer Festival — put on by his new company Brew Reverie — is perhaps the most ambitious attempt yet. Each of the Carrillo Rec Center’s rooms will be transformed to play to attendees’ “visual, olfactory, auditory, gustatory, and tactile stimuli.”

Hop Hall: The main ballroom

hosts the majority of brewers, who’ll be sharing their “hopforward” ales as well as many special dry-hopped versions, as Fishbon artists and improv groups from Comedy Hideaway rule the stage. Humulene Canteen: Explore the magic of hops with experts while smelling different varieties, experimenting with art, and sipping two beers alongside four appetizers with each. Lupulin Lands: S.B. Brewing Co. will offer four differently hopped versions of their Santa Barbara Blonde to reveal the nuances of American, European, and Southern Hemisphere hops. Participants get a full pour of the normal beer, plus tasters of the other three. Myrcene Scene: The event’s “crown jewel” occupies two rooms on the second floor, where beers will be paired with music, noise, lights, and projections. Drinkers can get in touch with how they feel about each beer, for real. Saturday, June 28, 4-8 p.m., hoptopia.nightout.com, $20$70 ($10 discount with code INDY via nightout.com), Carrillo Recreation Center, benefiting Fishbon

FINCH & FORK’S 2ND ANNUAL ‘SHUCK ’N SWALLOW’ One “shucker” and one “swallower” from eight food and beverage companies will compete in a race to shellfishsucking domination on the rooftop patio of the Canary Hotel, including teams from the hotel’s own restaurant Finch & Fork as well as Blush, Enterprise Fish Co., Chuck’s Waterfront Grill, The Brewhouse, Outpost S.B., Arlington Tavern, and The Hungry Cat. The reigning champs are Blush’s executive chef, Brandon Worrell, and line cook Doug “Fresh” Galbraith. “I think that almost every team felt it after eating that many oysters. I heard some were never the same again,” said Worrell. “My hands were destroyed afterward. I knew after we’d won that we were going to be back again.” In addition to participating, Finch & Fork’s Chef James Siao will serve cheddar hush puppies with chipotle honey, marketfresh fish tacos, salt-and-pepper chicken wings with chili caramel and pickled celery, deviled eggs with smoked trout, pickled shallots alongside olive relish, and, of course, oysters, with such toppings as smoked gazpacho. Vodka punches, thanks to Tito’s, wine from Riverbench, and a special beer brewed just for the event by The Brewhouse will also be flowing. Sunday, June 29, 1-4 p.m., Canary Hotel, finchandforkrestaurant.com, $30, benefiting Environmental Defense Center

Mesa Memories of

CHRIS WHITCRAFT REMEMBERING THE WINEMAKER, NEIGHBOR, AND COFOUNDER OF THIS WEEKEND’S S.B. WINE FESTIVAL

S

by D.J. Palladino

ometimes lives intertwine by chance. People become friends because they keep getting thrown together by lovely versions of random luck. It helps if the people enjoy each other’s company, but their very lives seem to create the bond. The sad part comes when the same fates break things up unexpectedly.

Chris Whitcraft and I met in 1970 when we were young party coconspirators. Barely out of high school, Whitcraft belonged to a smart gang of guys and girls who moved up here from Palos Verdes with not much more on their minds than fast talk and laughter. Chris was always funnier: smart and quick to point out hypocrites. Being younger, I was only able to host the PV crew when my parents foolishly left their house in my care. Later, we all got our own places, establishing a network from Montecito to Isla Vista of strategic crash-pad party sites. In this group, Chris got semi-responsible first: Becoming a wine guru in a kegger age, he held down the most reputable, enviable job of all — the cool guy at Montecito’s lush Mayfare Wines store. He pioneered what I’ve come to consider the blessed hedonist streak hidden in the pretenses of viticulturalists. He would steer you to Heitz Cellars Martha’s Vineyard as well as to Liberty School’s cheap exquisite reds. I saw him pluck fun from the jaws of snobbery, knowing what wine was really about. Later, when Chris and his then wife, Kathleen Barnato, moved next door to my parents on what was then still the unfashionable Mesa, he made a neighborly visit. Flabbergasted (and freaking out my dad), he said, “I always wondered where this house was. I had a good time here.” My own family eventually moved into the Mesa home, and Chris and Kathy became neighbors. Our kids were in each other’s houses, we threw simultaneous Fourth of July parties, though obviously one wanted to be on the Whitcraft porch, especially after he began opening bottles of his own wines. It was at this point that the serious party dividends paid out, when Whitcraft began exploring the idea of a winery without vines. He wasn’t the first, but he was among them, and the bottles I drank in those days were remarkable and delicious. “I make user-friendly wines,” he always said. And I always thought that it was true, but truly inadequate, because his wines had extraordinary dimensions, informed by his wit and his commitment to hedonism. It’s not a sarcastic remark. Too much of our world depends on postponing gratification if not repressing it entirely. Whitcraft liked fun and disrespected false pieties, including the kind practiced by wine snobs. I remember he won a national water tasting contest by identifying Santa Barbara tap water, which he could smell a yard away. It was funny, but I never doubted it. Chris could be precise and withering, but his best quality was the warm welcome below the gruff look. He was proud of his children, Drake and Alyssa, and The Santa Barbara Wine he worked hard at enjoying his life.

Festival is Saturday, June 28, 2-5 p.m., at the Museum of Natural History (sbnature.org). A memorial for Chris Whitcraft takes place Sunday, June 29, noon-6pm, at Skofield Park.

OLIVE OIL

fter an attempt to establish an

olive oil business in France proved unsuccessful, Shawn and Antoinette Addison brought their dedication and drive to California, where they decided to give olives another shot. Starting from scratch by growing, milling, bottling, and labeling all of their own products in the Santa Ynez Valley, the Addisons branched out by buying The Olive Oil Source in 2008, which was founded 10 years earlier by John and Lisa Deane to provide information and supplies to California’s fast-growing olive oil scene. In the five-plus years since taking it over, the Addisons have continued that mission with renewed energy, building the website and online marketplace into an internationally recognized portal for all things olive oil. Today, in addition to educational videos and other resources, OliveOilSource.com offers wholesale bulk oils and vinegars, boutique products for “home, mind, and body,” and a custom labeling operation that’s popular for weddings and other parties. The Addisons offer more than 40 different flavors of olive oil, including the popular garlic, lemon, and blood orange. “One of the reasons people buy flavored olive oils is for the convenience,” said Antoinette. “You can take green beans, put them in the microwave for two minutes, put on some lemon olive oil, and it’s really good.” People also frequently buy flavored oils as a substitute for ingredients that they have trouble finding in the grocery store, which explains why blood orange is so popular across the country. The party-favor option allows customers to choose from an assortment of labels, create their own labels, or work with an expert to come up with an original design to fit any and all of their gift needs. And it’s a gift guests are sure to enjoy, said Antoinette, explaining, “It’s something everyone uses, even if they’re not totally into food!” See OliveOilSource.com. — Kailey Erlich

3 ASIAN VEGGIE-FRIENDLY FINDS

A

sian cuisine, with its remarkably diverse range of culinary personalities, can be a haven for vegetarians, and Santa Barbara’s best Thai, Chinese, and Indonesian restaurants are just that. Here are three dishes to try around town, from the Eastside to the theater district. Silken Tofu at Zen Yai: Zen Yai (425 State St.; 957-1193), which opened in 2001, stays true to its authentic Thai cooking techniques. Owner Wisut Jindapahn credits wife Pim Mayta’s culinary expertise in the kitchen for their restaurant’s popularity. The couple comes from Thailand, but they have been refining their craft in California for a long time. “We take the different cultures and mix it all in with Thai food,” Jindapahn said. Although the vast majority of Zen Yai’s menu can be customized to meet vegetarian diners’ needs, the silken tofu (pictured left), which is often overlooked due to its status as an appetizer, is more than what it sounds. Served on a bed of fresh mixed greens, large portions of tofu are ever-so-lightly seared and drizzled with homemade garlic sauce, black pepper, and cilantro. Oyster sauce is traditionally the base, but vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free guests can choose from Zen Yai’s arsenal of accommodating sauces. (Yes, they even have a vegan “oyster” sauce made from shiitake mushrooms.) The silken tofu

is understated in its simplicity, but it is precisely that which captures the restaurant’s personality. Baked Tofu at Shang Hai: Shang Hai

(830 N. Milpas St.; 962-7833; shanghaisbca .net) has been serving homemade Chinese cuisine since it opened in 1983. “We are small, and we’ve been here for a long time,” said coowner Kevin Yin, “and we are most focused on family-style [dining].” Thanks to co-owner Yvette Yin’s own vegetarianism, Shang Hai knows exactly what vegetarian diners want. “I’ve been vegetarian for 24 years,” said Yvette. “I think the customers feel more comfortable when they have vegetarian food here because they say, ‘You know what vegetarian means!’” Shang Hai’s owners understand that it’s not enough to swap in tofu for meat; they also have sauce options that are free from fish stock, oyster extract, or any other animal products. Try the baked tofu on Chinese greens (pictured middle). Succulent strips of baked tofu are layered over sautéed Chinese broccoli and flavored with vegetarian oyster sauce and soy sauce. Because it’s baked, the tofu has a firm chewiness that isn’t typical of your usual silken tofu. For this reason, the dish is ideal for new vegetarians who are still learning to love soy-based products. Pair it with a side of steamed brown rice to complete the meal.

Tempeh Tacos at Sama Sama Kitchen:

Founded on family and friends, Sama Sama Kitchen (1208 State St.; 965-4566; sama samakitchen.com) introduced Indonesian food to Santa Barbara in March 2013. “We’re the first Indonesian restaurant in Santa Barbara,” head chef and owner Ryan Simorangkir said. “Because we’re bringing something new, we try to tailor [our food] to our customers’ taste buds.” The tempeh tacos (pictured right) were an immediate hit among all guests. “These are definitely not traditional,” said Simorangkir, whose colorfully charming tacos consist of sweet tempeh, cabbage, garlic, and shallots, all flavored with peanut sauce, tamarind, and chili and stuffed into a fried wanton wrapper shell. It’s a sweet treat to start off your meal, with the tempeh almost tasting like candied nuts. While it may seem strange to find tacos in an Indonesian restaurant, General Manager Mike Easbey maintains that they are one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes. “People who eat meat want the tempeh tacos,” he said, because tempeh doesn’t taste like meat or a meat substitute. “It’s really its own thing.” ■ PAUL WELLMAN

ARTS & LECTURES’ BIG, BOLD SEASON

We may have just celebrated the official start of summer, but UCSB ANNOUNCING THE Arts & Lectures (A&L) already has its gaze firmly set on the EVENTS LINEUP fall. That’s because on October 2, Santa Barbara’s premiere events programming entity will kick off its 2014-15 season — with a celebratory concert from Tony Bennett, no less. And from there, the goods only get better. Like years past, A&L has divvied the season up into “theme bundles” for easy (and discounted) ticket purchasing. Packages range from “Family Fun” and “Talking Heads” to “Classical Music,” “Dance,” “Jazz,” and “Afrobeat,” among others. (There’s also a “Create Your Own Series” package deal for you eclectics.) But even if you’re an A&L novice, this year is boasting something for everyone. Among the 2014-15 all-stars, A&L will host Magic Johnson for his talk The Magic of Winning at the Arlington Theatre on October 24. Cartoonists Matt Groening (The Simpsons) and Linda Barry (Ernie Pook’s Comeek, What It Is) will appear at the Arlington on October 10 for the West Coast premiere of their talk, Love, Hate & Comics: The Friendship That Would Not Die. And on February 19, 2015, the Granada will welcome Food Network star Ina Garten for An Evening with Ina Garten.

She noticed patterns in the way human beings move, and she worked to replicate those patterns in a wave-like series.

lowing. Staccato. Chaos. Lyrical. Stillness. To the uninitiated, the words describe qualities of music or movement. To followers of dance pioneer Gabrielle Roth, they represent a specific tradition: a meditative, guided improvisational dance known as Rhythms. This weekend, Rhythms-certified teacher Amber Ryan returns to Santa Barbara for the third time. She’s here to lead Dance Tribe, the weekly Sunday-morning gathering of movers and seekers. One month later, the former pro dancer and daughter-in-law of the late Roth will offer an in-depth Rhythms workshop at Yoga Soup. On the phone recently, Ryan spoke about her journey through Rhythms as a transformative arc. It was physical injury, she explained, that lead her to the practice. “I was on contract at a repertory theater, and my left ankle had gotten so aggravated from repetitive abuse as a dancer that it got to the point where I was on crutches during the day to do the show at night,” she explained. “Eventually, I got the message that this was not sustainable.” When a friend handed her Roth’s book Sweat Your Prayers, Ryan knew her life was about to change.“By the time I had finished page one, I had absolute clarity that Gabrielle would be my teacher,” she said. Ryan went on to study closely with Roth for the next decade. She learned to dance without injury, and she eventually married Roth’s son Jonathan Horan, a master teacher of Rhythms. Though Roth died in 2012, Horan, Ryan, and their colleagues continue to spread her teachings around the world. For Ryan, the beauty of the practice is that it’s appropriate for everyone.“As a former professional dancer, I’m an exception,” she noted. “Rhythms is for everyone; age, physical type, gender, experience — none of that matters. The invitation is to come as you are: with your injuries, your heartache, your joy. The question is, ‘Who am I today?’ That’s the starting point.” According to Dance Tribe spokesperson Marcelino Sepulveda, Ryan has a particular talent for drawing people out of themselves and helping them discover the joy of movement. “She’s a master at getting people to move so they can become more aware of their own body and true inner wisdom,” he noted. If you were to observe a roomful of people participating in Rhythms, you’d see them move slowly and then move vigorously as the energy of the music grew from gentle to beatdriven before winding back down again. Yet according to Ryan, the heart of this practice is mental as much as it is physical. “It’s a movement meditation,” she explained. “The dance aspect is an amazing lure to get people to meditate.” Ryan described the way Roth developed the five-part process out of

JACK WHITE LAZARETTO Jack White is a force of nature and among the most notable guitar rockers of the era, and as such, each of his new releases has become a cause for celebration. On Lazaretto, White pulls out all the stops in his wonderfully eclectic fashion. Kicking off with a kick-ass cover of Blind Willie McTell’s “Three Women Blues,” White channels his inner mack daddy. It’s followed by Lazaretto’s funky title track, on which White raps over massively crunchy riffs, bombastic drums, and rustic fiddling: “They wanna blow down the prison / They’re lighting fires with the cash of the masses / And like the dough I don’t fall down / I’m so Detroit I make it rise from the ashes.” Elsewhere, the stirring duet “Temporary Ground” brings in the bluegrass and reinforces White’s country chops, as well as his adeptness at blues. “High Ball Stepper” serves as the album’s showstopper and enshrines White with such guitar gods as Jimi Hendrix, Jimmy Page, and Jeff Beck. Meanwhile, “Just One Drink” sounds like the best Jagger/ Richards honky-tonk tune that never made it onto Exile on Main Street. However, the song which best taps into the zeitgeist is the philosophic, Woody Guthrie–invoking “Entitlement,” on which the singer — accompanied by pedal-steel guitar — ruefully proclaims, “There are children today who are lied to / Told the world is rightfully theirs / They can have what they want, whenever they want / They take like Caesar and nobody cares.” When all is said and done, it’s the song that resonates the longest, and the best testament to the way White deconstructs and then reupholsters Americana music into something refulgent. — Sean Mageean

T

he 2014 Music Academy of the West season blasted off in truly spectacular fashion at this concert, which featured a fascinating arrangement of a work by Richard Strauss. Jay Friedman, the principal trombonist of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the author of the arrangement, was on hand to conduct this version of An Alpine Symphony, which involved a large ensemble of brass instruments, percussion, and an organ, rather than the full orchestra envisioned by Strauss. The piece dates from 1915 and finds Strauss in ravishing form, or should that be ravishing formlessness? Despite its title, there’s no discernible symphonic structure to these 21 musical episodes, which reveal every facet of the composer’s vast knowledge of orchestration for horns. The Alps may be the ostensible subject, but the music of Strauss’s contemporary Gustav Mahler looms as large as the Matterhorn in these jagged, majestic fragments of musical genius. The program’s second half was conducted by Larry Rachleff and offered a classical alternative to the Romantic style so prominently featured in the first. For Sergei Prokofiev, the composer whose Symphony No.  in D Major, Op.  “Classical” followed the intermission, the classical style was a choice made in conscious reaction to what was perceived as the excesses of music, like Strauss’s Alpine Symphony, which was composed just two years prior. The Academy Festival Orchestra responded warmly to maestro Rachleff and quickly summoned the excitement that these opening concerts tend to induce. Prokofiev’s dancing, somewhat self-conscious take on the classical symphonic style flew by, leaving the happy audience in just the right state of anticipation for the night’s finale, the Symphony No.  in D Major, Op.  of Ludwig van Beethoven. With youthful energy as your main resource, you can’t go too wrong programming Beethoven’s Symphony No. . While the work’s structure looks back to Mozart and Haydn, the music Beethoven makes from within those formal constraints nearly explodes with forward momentum. The young string sections rallied behind the fiery leadership of experienced concertmaster Jorja Fleezanis, who joins the Music Academy’s faculty this summer while continuing to hold an endowed chair as a professor in orchestral performance at Indiana University’s Jacobs School of Music. Fleezanis and Rachleff work well together, and the resulting performance brought an appreciative audience to its feet for a long ovation. This triumph of musicianship was also clearly a triumph of intelligent, thoughtful programming, which bodes extremely well for what promises to be a very interesting summer. Pitting the extravagance of Strauss against both the neoclassical response of Prokofiev and the heady, nonstop invention of Beethoven in his classical mode sets up a fascinating dialogue that subsequent offerings from the Academy Festival Orchestra will surely continue to explore. In fact, the June 28 concert at the Granada Theatre, which will also be conducted by Rachleff, returns to the same three composers, although for different material. Strauss’s Vienna Philharmonic Fanfare is just two minutes long, but it will serve to remind listeners of the sprawling Alpine Symphony, and the fifth symphonies of Beethoven and Prokofiev that follow it will show these composers in the thick of dealing with their own impulses toward transcendence. It’s a delight to share this ongoing musical journey with the ■ talented young musicians, who are clearly enjoying the process.

hat artist wouldn’t want to know the secret to becoming part of a major museum’s permanent collection? While Left Coast: Recent Acquisitions of Contemporary Art, on view through September 14 at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art (SBMA), may not provide a blueprint for aspiring creators, there are plenty of hints and reminders and enough visual and mental stimulation to feed several months of heated contemplation. Curators Julie Joyce (contemporary art) and Karen Sinsheimer (photography) describe the show as offering “an overview of the SBMA’s collecting habits in contemporary art and photography over the last five years,” and the result is both wide-ranging and coherent, with disparate works coming together into a wide-angle snapshot of what’s happening in the art world, particularly here in Southern California. Hint number one comes in the form of Lari Pittman’s extraordinary 1990 painting “Transcendental and Needy,” which occupies a prominent spot in the first of the show’s two galleries, and reminds us that work collected in the last five years doesn’t necessarily mean work created in the last five years. As part of Pittman’s “Needy” series of paintings, dense allegorical works layered with personal symbolism and dominated by variations on the figure of an owl, this particular work addresses the AIDS crisis and its impact on Pittman’s life, revealing a personal approach to mortality and to historical context that’s one of the show’s most frequently occurring home truths. In an entirely different painterly idiom, yet with a similar suggestion of interiority and menace, there’s UCSB professor Dan Connally’s 2004 abstraction “A Small Fire.” As with Pittman, Connally’s presence here indicates that SBMA curators see his work as part of an oeuvre that will stand the test of time. How do photographers qualify for inclusion? Some, like Ken Gonzales-Day, Mario Ybarra Jr., and Lyle Ashton Harris, do so by using photographs as one piece in a larger project involving social commentary and self-dramatization. Gonzales-Day’s untitled photograph of two antique busts from the Getty collection riffs brilliantly on the double meaning of the word “profile,” which in this instance implies both the angle from which these faces are seen and the degree to which they fit with the viewer’s expectations regarding facial features and racial identity. Ybarra’s “Go Tell It #” depicts the artist standing on a Los Angeles rooftop shouting through a megaphone, his clenched fist in the air. The angle of the shot emphasizes the key irony here — there’s no one else in the picture. He’s telling it, but nobody’s listening. The image comes from a period in Ybarra’s career when he was busy unearthing the hidden historical connections that traverse Southern California’s famed tortilla curtain. Lyle Ashton Harris also appears in his own photographs but takes the genre of self-portraiture in another, albeit equally political, direction. His “Americas (Triptych) [Miss Girl; Kym, Lyle & Crinoline; Miss America]” (1987-88), which was first widely seen as part of the notorious 1994 Black Male exhibit at the Whitney Museum of American Art, remains one of the most striking examples of gender and race deconstruction from that period. Expect makeup, nudity, an American flag, and, yes, crinoline. Lastly, it helps to be truly, incontrovertibly, and iconically great, as can be seen in the works by Jack Goldstein, Ken Price, Mike Kelley, and Llyn Foulkes. Each of these artists has earned a place in the recent canon of major artists, and the museum has succeeded in acquiring not merely representative but truly important works by each of these masters. Goldstein’s untitled painting from 1989, painted just one year before the artist quit making art altogether, is a classic example of the Metro Pictures sublime and looks just as good, if not better, in Santa Barbara than it did in SoHo.

he Granada’s Santa Barbara Center for the Performing Arts has now presented two of these classic Broadway musicals in concert, and the quality in both last year’s My Fair Lady and this year’s Camelot in Concert has been excellent. Director/choreogTHE KING AND WE: (FROM LEFT ) Lancelot rapher Marcia Mil(Michael Campayno) and Guenevere grom Dodge is an (Brandi Burkhardt) have something to tell expert adaptor, and King Arthur (Robert Sean Leonard). her talent, plus the exposure both here in Santa Barbara and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, has made these productions magnets for major stars. This Camelot boasted five of them: Barry Bostwick in the role of Merlyn, Brandi Burkhardt as a soulful Guenevere, Michael Campayno as the young stud Lancelot du Lac, Josh Grisetti as the villainous Mordred, and Robert Sean Leonard as a memorably noble King Arthur. Camelot is among the most durable and satisfying of all the great Broadway warhorses, and Lerner and Loewe weave their medieval tapestry brilliantly. It’s not just a late (1960) manifestation of the golden age, Rodgers and Hammerstein–style show; it’s the fulfillment of that tradition, and it goes a little further, too. It doesn’t hurt that Camelot’s central triangle of Art, Lance, and Guen is so compelling, and the additional interest of Arthur’s inventing democracy lends things a certain gravity. But the ultimate charm is where it should be: in the music. There were highlights galore in this sparkling version, from such familiar standards as Lancelot’s “If Ever I Would Leave You” to the King’s surprisingly ambivalent “How to Handle a Woman.” The curtain is up on this fun annual ■ event, and so far the results are very much worth watching.

he contract between an audience and a performer in the theater typically involves an unspoken but very serious agreement: Don’t come after me, and I won’t interrupt you. Certain genres, such as stand-up comedy, magic, hypnosis, and timeshare sales pitches throw this convention out the window, but they tend to define themselves as outside the realm of conventional theater. In Thom Pain (based on nothing), a one-man show by Will Eno and featuring Mitchell Thomas, these reliable distinctions melt away, and the resulting experience offers not just a one-man show that’s about one-man shows but also a sense of being in an audience that’s somehow about being in an audience. There’s also a story, or rather, three of them. One involves the death of a dog, another is about the narrator being stung by bees, and the third looks at the narrator’s relationship with a woman. The details of these tales tumble into the piece haphazardly, without a clear relation to the overall shape of the performance, which pulls structure from the many ways that the script creates and then thwarts audience expectations. “Do you like magic?” the narrator asks at several points in the proceedings, each time answering his own question with another variation on his original irony, which is, pause, “I don’t.” The fourth wall between the performer and the audience collapses completely in two segments, neither of which I will disclose here for the benefit of those who might see the show this week at the Santa Barbara Museum of Art. Some of the language is pretty crude, and the character Thomas creates is hardly likeable, but beneath the surface of this damaged soul there’s a yearning that carries through. As he puts it himself toward the end of the piece, “I tried.” ■

An Evening with

Joan Baez Heads the Bowl with the Indigo Girls

Richard Thompson

DANA TYNAN

hat becomes a legend most?” a 1960s ad campaign used to ask. For Joan Baez, the answer is change. After all, the voice of the boomer generation has been through several wringers and managed to move along with the changing times. From the archetypal, willowy folkie strumming “Blowin’ in the Wind” to the pregnant, short-haired antiwar figure who sang “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” at Woodstock to a wistful hit-record chronicler of that passing idealistic era on “Diamonds and Rust,” Baez has morphed impressively. And that only takes us to the 1980s. “I think we spend half of our time Joan Baez reinventing ourselves in this business,” laughed the singer, speaking from her Woodside home last week about the series of shared tours she has been conducting for some time now. The model pairs Baez with musicians like Indigo Girls, who may not seem cutting edge now but help to bring a younger-than-yesterday crowd out to the shows. The hand of change is still moving around her, too. I asked her if it has been an unreasonably bad year, seeing how she lost two close friends, Pete Seeger and Steve Jobs. “And don’t forget my mother,” she added. “You know, she just turned 100, and I asked her before her birthday what she wanted. And she said, ‘to drop dead.’ Well, she got that.” Baez seems resolute, almost bouncy, even after all these years. “When you ask about Pete, I owe him almost everything. When I was young, my favorite kind of music was rhythm and blues, and my parents were sure I was going to become a black drug addict,” she laughed. “And then they took me to a Pete Seeger concert. I don’t even remember what he played, but it changed my life.” Even then, she said, Seeger and she ultimately differed about her commitment to pacifism. She’s also disappointed in Barack Obama for his role in international militarism, even though he was the first person she ever endorsed as a candidate. “I think it just goes with that terrible job. Maybe he will start a movement after he leaves office,” she pondered. On top of other disappointments, Baez struggled with her voice recently, until a vocal coach got her in touch with a rehabilitation therapist. “I hoped it would be something simple like a polyp,” she said. What she learned through retraining her voice was “to be happy with what I have left. After a couple of sessions, I was singing again, and I was happy.” The tour pairings come from another accommodation to the way life changes. “Twenty years ago, I thought my career was over. I couldn’t even get a label at that time. It seemed everybody revered the legend, but nobody wanted the singer,” she said. “I have this very clever manager, Mark Spector, who realized it.” His solution was simple: Ring in the new. “We started with the Indigo Girls back then, but I also did shows with Dar Williams and Steve Earle. And now we’re back to the Indigo Girls, the oldest of the new,” she laughed. “Today they sent me three songs to learn, and I think it goes so well in the part of the show where we all sing together. At least, that’s the part I like the best.” Baez remains constant in one thing: Her world needs work to get better. “I’m a pessimist,” she said, even given the giant strides that made an Obama presidency and gay marriage possible in these United States. There is still much to be done. “I think I agree with Jimmy Carter, who said that the Tea Party represents the fact that as a nation, we’re not really that far down the road yet.”

ay what you will about The Milk Carton Kids’ old-world acoustic folk music — they know how to put on a show. On Thursday night, the SoCal duo returned to the Lobero for the third time — their first as headliner THE ODD COUPLE: Joey — and brought with them a subtly Ryan (left) and Kenneth celebratory air that lasted from the Pattengale made sweet music quirky start to the big, standing-O as Lobero headliners. finish. The evening began with a set from North Dakota–bred singer/songwriter Tom Brosseau. For those of us born and raised on the West Coast, Brosseau’s particular brand of Middle America folk seems not only of another time but of another world. Alone with a guitar, he interweaves personal stories of his upbringing into nearly all of his hushed, gently plucked songs. And as far as arresting moments go, his “Hard Luck Boy” took Thursday’s top prize with its powerfully heartrending tale about how the singer was abandoned by his mother in a Midwest department store. For the evening’s second act, Joey Ryan and bandmate Kenneth Pattengale did more than pull their weight as headliners. Over the course of an hour and a half, the Kids zigged and zagged all over their catalog, delivering just enough big, breakneck-speed fretwork (“Honey, Honey,” “I Still Want a Little More”) to keep things lively. Of course, as fans will tell you, the band is at its best in the quieter moments in between, and Thursday’s show offered no shortage of gentle, resonating selections. Of special mention was the lyrically rich opener “Hope of a Lifetime,” “Stealing Romance,” and the late-set oldie “Memoirs of an Owned Dog.” Still, it’s the way Ryan and Pattengale interact — in and out of song — that makes a Milk Carton Kids show a truly memorable experience, and on Thursday the duo’s mix of unspoken musical interplay and Penn and Teller– style banter was firing on all cylinders. Revival music rarely sounds so good.

This, I would soon learn, was tour stop #1 for The Soulshine Tour, a so-named “lifestyle festival” brought to us courtesy of Michael Franti & Spearhead, with a grip of some of their musically inclined and consciousliving friends like SOJA and Brett Dennen helping fill out the bill. The security shakedown at the gate was the lightest in recent memory. Snarky observations aside, it was a damn fine show by the end, Franti riding his good-vibes train more than a few clicks past the fabled 10 p.m. curfew time. The entire audience, albeit one that barely half-filled the Bowl’s seats, was on its feet in a blissed-out, jump-up-and-down, noodle-arm ecstasy. It was impossible not to be lightened by the moment. I mean, just 12 minutes prior, an always barefoot Franti had left the safety of the stage during a particularly upbeat rendition of “Closer to You” and made his way to the very back row, celebrating his climb by jumping up and down on the “worst” seat in the place, surrounded by similarly jumpy and stoked kids. As he walked past me, I considered reaching out to touch the man and collect his sweat like some sort of teenage fanboy; the impulse was a dead giveaway I had drank the Kool-Aid. It was the first show of the 35-stop Soulshine tour, and its ringleader was going all out. Then again, I’m ■ fairly certain Franti brings the A-plus posi-vibes each and every time.

CHUCK PROPHET BRINGS THE STRINGS by Aly Comingore

DIVINE INTERVENTION: As far as guitar-toting singer/songwriters go, Chuck Prophet is the real deal. A card-carrying Californian, Prophet makes

music that’s both reflexive and outward-facing. He offers big, bold moments of celebration, but he can also go places dark and eerily insular when he wants to. Most importantly, though, Prophet’s songs toe the fine line that separates the private musicians from the communal ones. In the grand pop-music lexicon, I like to think he sits somewhere between Springsteen and the The Mountain Goats’ John Darnielle. This Saturday, June 28, Prophet returns to the Lobero Theatre as part of Sings Like Hell to perform his 2012 LP, Temple Beautiful, in its entirety with string section accompaniment. (Visit lobero.com for tickets.) I recently caught up with Prophet via email to discuss growing up and gigging at SFO. Did you always know you wanted to be a musician? I suppose. Sure I did, but I didn’t really think of it as a vocation. I didn’t know anyone who made a living playing music or anything. I just wanted to climb inside the records I was listening to more than anything. And later, I was always in bands but didn’t see it as a career or anything. It just didn’t seem attainable. It was really punk rock that erased the line between the stage and the audience. And punk rock was exploding all around me when I was growing up. So yeah, I got lucky. I had my kite up, and the wind changed direction. I really do think I was lucky in that respect. But honestly, I was brought up on records. Listening to records. I come from a conservative, non-musical family. I begged for guitar lessons and got golf lessons instead. But, growing up in Orange County — it was the kind of place where if you shook a tree, five guitar players would fall out. So, music was everywhere. And I soaked it up. Growing up, what do you think had the biggest artistic impact on you? All roads lead to Dylan I suppose; beyond that, if I mention one influence I’d have to leave out a hundred. The other day, I was telling my wife, Stephanie, about seeing Iggy Pop on the Dinah Shore show with my mom. She was ironing, and there he was writhing around with his shirt off on daytime TV. It was awe-inspiring. I didn’t think a life like that was possible, but I did think to myself,“Hmmmm ... I want to hang out with people like that when I grow up.” Your last two albums have been inspired by places. Are thematic parameters something you think about setting for yourself when you’re writing? Totally. We’ll be playing the entire Temple Beautiful LP with strings at the [Lobero] show. All the songs on that LP relate to the San Francisco experience. And the music is in there, too. There are the people — the characters and the music — and there is the history that flows through all of us here. Klipschutz [poet/songwriter Kurt Lipschutz] and I have written many songs over the years, but with that record — when we started to tap into the history, the weirdness, the energy and spontaneity that brings us all here in the first place, it started flowing. Here we are a couple years later, and I still love singing the songs. What’s been your proudest moment as a musician thus far? I’m into the shared experience. And there have been many. I think our first British tour was out of control. We didn’t know what we were doing and just plowed through with no days off. Sweaty pub gigs. We got better every night. I look back on those days fondly, but you always romanticize the ridiculous gigs. Some things are only romantic in retrospect. That’s how it is given enough time. A couple years back, we had a recurring gig at the SFO airport. Yep. Performing at SFO. You learn that it’s a service industry. It’s not quite showbiz. My mother somehow caught wind of it, or overheard me talking about it, and over Thanksgiving dinner she’s like, “Are you still working out at the airport?” I’m ■ like, “Mom! Stop saying that! I don’t work at the airport!!”

lint Eastwood is not a terrible director, and, despite undeserved flak, this is not a terrible film. In fact, some scenes work you over impressively, even if you never believed the people who brought us “Walk Like a Man” and “Rag Doll” were JERSEY THING: Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys is a corny but comparable to Lennon and McCartney. compelling music biopic of ’60s sensation The Four Seasons.

The following films are playing in Santa Barbara FRIDAY, JUNE 27, THROUGH TUESDAY, JULY 1. Descriptions followed by initials — DJP (D.J. Palladino) and KS (Kit Steinkellner) — have been taken from our critics’ reviews, which can be read in full at independent.com. The symbol ✯ indicates the film is recommended.

✯ Obvious Child (84 mins.; R: language, some bloody violence) That there have been no loud public protests over this film probably is proof that the Christian Right is losing its grip. What we have here is a fine, level-headed look at abortion, with just enough tears and dark humor provided not to trivialize the issue. And it doesn’t cop out like Juno did, either. The idea here is that terminating a pregnancy is a serious issue but clearly more common and more called for than timid popular culture admits. The story concerns a young standup comedian named Donna who gets dumped by a jerk and then meets nice guy Max (Jake Lacy). Some weeks after their bouncy-drunk hook-up scenes, Donna’s breasts get tender. The way she deals with her unexpected pregnancy — they thought they had used a condom — is surprisingly moving and nuanced. The downside of this otherwise subtly turned-out film is how poorly written Donna’s part is. There is a stand-up renaissance out there in the real world, with many brilliant women making us laugh and think, and the fact that our heroine is not only self-absorbed but also mostly lame undermines the first 20 minutes of this New York hipster issue feature. But the second half soars by clinging to the courage of its convictions. Donna has friends like Nellie (Gaby Hoffmann) and a mom (Polly Draper) who seems icy but has her own abortion story to tell. There’s an imperfect crew that knows where she is going and what it might be like. The moral here might be obvious, even if the morality isn’t to everyone’s liking. Better still, it’s the kind of thing we don’t see enough of in movies. (DJP) Paseo Nuevo The Rover (102 mins.; R: language, some bloody violence)

From the land that brought us On the Beach, Mad Max, and The Coca-Cola Kid, here’s an apocalyptic shaggy-dog story set, as the movie puts it, “10 years after the collapse.” The film opens on a ragged desert with Eric (Guy Pearce) brooding inside his car as a tiny fly flits across his face. Near the end, there is a similar scene, though in the intervening 103 minutes, we’ve followed Max through a dried-up Australian outback, where each human confrontation takes place at gunpoint and half end with someone dead left behind. In the meantime, Max meets Rey (Robert Pattinson), a wounded bird he needs for a quest we don’t quite understand. One reason to see this movie, made by David Michôd, who did the brilliant Animal Kingdom, is to see how he manhandles these handsome faces, particularly Pattinson, who is virtually unrecognizable for his first five minutes onscreen. Both Pearce and he are scabby, unkempt, and dusty, but Pattinson is also oddly affected in a way that’s hard to pin down. He’s a cross between Lennie in Of Mice and Men 60

and somebody weird in a David Lynch film. The movie seems to serve best not only as a cheap tour of anarchy’s domain but also as a nice reinforcement of Australia’s recently enacted anti-gun laws. It’s grim, violent, and very thoughtful, though you might not enjoy watching it as much as you will have fun figuring out the dogged behavior Guy Pearce exhibits in this blood-and-dust shortcut across hell. (DJP) Plaza de Oro Think Like a Man Too (106 mins.; PG-13: crude sexual content including references, partial nudity, language, drug material)

The 2012 romantic comedy Think Like a Man brought together its powerhouse ensemble cast to tell the story of four women who stumble across a book of dating advice for men and decide to use the advice to their advantage, and when the men realize they’re being played, they retaliate with similar stealth. Its sequel, Think Like a Man Too (which took boxoffice first place this past weekend, its opening, with a $30 million haul), follows the couples a few years down the line as they caravan to Vegas for a wedding. Everyone is now at different places in their respective relationships, and with this shift comes a whole new slew of problems. Lauren (Taraji P. Henson) and her boyfriend, Dominic (Michael Ealy), have both been offered their dream jobs on opposite sides of the country; Mya (Meagan Good) is haunted by the promiscuous past of her boyfriend, “Zeke the Freak” (Romany Malco); Kristen (Gabrielle Union) wants to have a baby with her reluctant partner, Jeremy (Jerry Ferrara); and bride-to-be Candace (Regina Hall) must maneuver her way around the impossible-to-please mother (Jenifer Lewis) of her fiancé, Michael (Terrence Jenkins). Comedian Kevin Hart manically plays the ringmaster of this four-ring circus, providing both antics and voiceover. Think Like a Man Too moves like a bat out of hell. It’s a speed demon of a romcom that refuses to leave its audience bored for a millisecond, but sometimes it leaves you wishing you had a chance to breathe during the hour-and-45-minute runtime. That said, the film is always tons of fun and intermittently laugh-out-loud funny. Sure, it moves at a seemingly methamphetamines-induced pace, but that doesn’t stop it from bringing real heart to the relationships it explores. It’s impressive that the movie can cover so much ground in such a limited amount of time. It’s also refreshing to see a minority ensemble cast hold center (and equally refreshing to see its white characters good-naturedly poked fun at), and a welcome sight to see the rom-com, now considered an endangered animal in the film world, free in the wild. (KS) Camino Real/Fiesta 5

PREMIERES Tammy (96 mins.; R: language including sexual references)

After losing her job and being cheated on by her husband, a woman (Melissa McCarthy) and her foul-mouthed grandmother (Susan Sarandon) take to the road. Camino Real/Fiesta 5 (Opens Tue., July 1)

A car mechanic and his daughter discover something that brings the Autobots and Decepticons down upon them. Arlington (2-D and 3-D)/ Camino Real (2- D and 3-D)/ Metro 4 (2-D and 3-D)

SCREENINGS The Animal Communicator (52 mins.; NR)

This documentary follows Anna Breytenbach, a woman who has devoted her life to studying and understanding how animals speak to one another. Fri., June 27, 8pm, Center of the Heart, 487 N. Turnpike Rd.; Sat., June 28, 7:30pm, Sacred Arts Center, 4921 Ninth St., Carpinteria

Dying Green (27 mins.; NR) This short documentary set in the foot of the Appalachian Mountains explores one man’s efforts to conserve land through “green burials.” Fri., June 27, 8pm, Center of the Heart, 487 N. Turnpike Rd.; Sat., June 28, 7:30pm, Sacred Arts Ctr., 4921 Ninth St., Carpinteria

✯ Frozen (108 mins.; PG: some action, mild rude humor) Anna and Kristoff unite on an epic journey to find Anna’s sister, Elsa, and rescue their kingdom from an endless winter. Besides its long-overdue bow to feminist hopes, Frozen strikes a nice balance between expectation and surprise; we’re on safe (if frigid) terrain, but the plot keeps you guessing. (DJP)

✯ Chef (115 mins.; R: language, some suggestive references) Jon (Swingers) Favreau writes, directs, and stars in this story about a chef who loses his restaurant job and starts up a food truck as a way to reunite his estranged family. The film wears its soulful foodiness on its greasy apron; it’s a perfectly delicious, sometimes 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) Camino Real (2- D)/Metro 4 (2-D)

✯ The Fault in Our Stars (125 mins.; PG-13: thematic elements, some sexuality, brief strong language) Two witty teens meet and fall in love at a cancer support group. Shailene Woodley and Ansel Elgort star. Every element of this movie sings, from the impeccable casting to the gracefully faithful bookto-film script adaptation to Josh Boone’s pitch-perfect direction. (KS) Paseo Nuevo How to Train Your Dragon 2 (102 mins.; PG: adventure action, some mild rude humor)

Hiccup and Toothless uncover a cave filled with new wild dragons as well as the mysterious Dragon Rider. If the point of moviemaking was just to dazzle, this would be the film of the year. Unfortunately, this thrilling, beautiful movie is nowhere near as endearing as part one. (DJP)

Fri., June 27, 8pm, La Cumbre Plaza, 121 S. Hope Ave.

Fairview (2-D)/Fiesta 5 (2-D)

✯ Ida The Grand Seduction (113 mins.; PG-13: some suggestive materials, drug references)

A small town is in dire need of a doctor in order to secure the building contract for a factory that will save them from economic ruin. When they find a contender in Dr. Lewis, the whole town rallies to get him to stay. Wed., July 2, 7:30pm, Plaza de Oro

✯ 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. Screens as part of the Summer Kids Series. (DJP) Tue., July 1, 10am, Paseo Nuevo

The Rocket (96 mins.; NR) A young boy who is believed to bring bad luck leads his family and two friends on a harrowing journey through Laos to find a new home. Sun., June 29, 4:30pm, Ojai Playhouse, 145 E. Ojai Ave., Ojai

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

A young novitiate nun in 1960s Poland discovers a dark family secret just as she’s on the verge of taking her vows. Director Pawel Pawlikowski’s stunning compositions and weird perspective choices force us out into Ida’s wintry bleakness in the most surprising of ways. (DJP) Plaza de Oro

Maleficent (97 mins.; PG: sequences of scary fantasy action and violence, frightening images)

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

Fairview (2-D)/Fiesta 5 (2-D)

Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon (85 mins.; R: language, some sexual references, nudity, drug use)

X-Men: Days of Future Past

✯ 22 Jump Street (112 mins.; R: language throughout, sexual content, drug material, brief nudity, some violence)

(131 mins.; PG-13: sequences of intense sci-fi violence and action, some suggestive material, nudity, language)

After (finally) finishing high school, officers Schmidt (Jonah Hill) and Jenko (Channing Tatum) go undercover at a local college. This is college humor at its best: smart and self-deprecating, and perfect for people who love to watch movies that make fun of movies that make fun of stuff. (DJP) Camino Real/Metro 4

The X-Men send Wolverine back in time to help save humanity from destruction. After you finish marching back and forth through the eons, Future Past leaves you, like all cool old Marvel Comics did, wishing for a time machine to find out what wonders the future might hold. (DJP)

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

CANCER

LIBRA

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): According to an astrologer named Astrolocherry (astrolocherry.tumblr.com), Aries is the sign of the freedom fighter, the explorer, the daredevil, and the adventurer. That’s all true; I agree with her. But here’s an important caveat. As you get older, it’s your duty to harness all that hot energy on behalf of the softer, slower, more tender parts of your life. The coming weeks will offer you a great opportunity to work on that challenge. To get started, imagine how you can be a freedom fighter, explorer, daredevil, and adventurer in service to your home, family, and community.

(June 21 - July 22): If you could harness the energy from a typical lightning bolt, you would be able to use it to toast 100,000 slices of bread. That’s an impossible scenario, of course. But I see it as an apt metaphor for the challenge you have ahead of you. I suspect you will soon get access to a massive influx of vital force that arrives in a relatively short time. Can you find a way to gather it in and store it up? Or will most of it, after the initial burst, leak away and be unavailable for long-term use? The secret to success will lie in whether you can figure out how to create the perfect “container.”

TAURUS

LEO

(Apr. 20 - May 20): After a thorough, detailed, painstaking analysis of the astrological omens, I’m inclined to advise you to be neither thorough nor detailed nor painstaking in the coming days. Instead, I suspect you will thrive by being spontaneous and improvisatory. Wing it, baby! Throw away the script. Trust your gut. Play it by ear. Make it up as you go along. If you find yourself frowning with indecision and beset by lazy procrastination, you will know you’re off course. If you are feeling blithe and agile as you get a lot done with creative efficiency, you will know you’re right in the groove.

(July 23 - Aug. 22): “Forget the suffering / You caused others. / Forget the suffering / Others caused you.” Czesław Miłosz wrote these words in his poem “Forget,” and now I’m passing them on to you. According to my reading of the astrological omens, now would be an excellent time for you to purge the old hurts you are still carrying, both those you dealt out and those you endured. Opportunities like this don’t come along often, Leo. I invite you to repay emotional debts, declare amnesty, and engage in an orgy of forgiveness. Any other things you can think of that will help wipe the slate clean?

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Would you like to be free from the experience of getting criticized? Do you think it might be nice if no one ever accused you of being wrong or off-track? If so, here’s how you should proceed, says American writer Elbert Hubbard: “Do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.” But I’m afraid I can’t recommend that behavior for you, Libra. In the coming weeks, you have a sacred duty to your Future Self to risk being controversial. I urge you to take strong stands, speak raw truths, and show your real feelings. Yes, you may attract flak. You might disturb the peace. But that will be an acceptable price to pay for the rewards you receive. This is one time when being courageous is more important than seeking harmony.

GEMINI

VIRGO

Homework: What are the five conditions you’d need in your world in order to feel you were living in Utopia? Write uaregod@comcast.net.

(Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): When a Navajo baby laughs for the first time, everyone in the community celebrates. It’s regarded as the moment when the child completes his or her transition from the spirit realm into the physical world. The person who has provoked the baby’s laughter is charged with planning the First Laugh Ceremony, a party to commemorate the magical event. I foresee a comparable development in your life, Virgo. You won’t be laughing for the first time, of course, but I suspect your sense of humor will reach a new ripeness. How? Maybe you will be able to find amusement in things you have always taken too seriously. Maybe you will suddenly have a deeper appreciation for life’s ongoing cosmic jokes. Or perhaps you will stumble upon reasons to laugh longer and harder and louder than you ever have before.

THe InDePenDenT

june 26, 2014

(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): A German chemist named Felix Hoffman had a prominent role in synthesizing two very different drugs: aspirin and heroin. In analyzing your astrological omens for the coming months, I see you as having a similar potential. You could create good stuff that will have the power to help and heal; or you could generate borderline stuff that will lead to a lot of problems; or you could do both. How it all plays out really is up to your free will. For best results, set your intention to go in the direction of things like aspirin and away from things like heroin.

AQUARIUS

SAGITTARIUS

PISCES

(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): “Everyone has something to hide,” declared Russian author Anton Chekhov. Is that true? Do even you blunt Sagittarians have something to hide? I’m going to say that for 90 percent of you, the answer is yes. There are secrets you don’t want anyone to find out about: past events you are reluctant to disclose or shady deeds you are getting away with now or taboo thoughts you want to keep sealed away from public knowledge. I’m not here to scold you about them or to encourage you to spill them. On the contrary, I say it’s time to bring them fully into your conscious awareness, to honor their

(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): British poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834) had an unusual fetish. He enjoyed eating apples and pears and other fruits while they were still hanging on the tree. Why? Maybe because the taste was as pure and brisk and naked as it could possibly be — an experience that I imagine would be important to a romantic poet like him. In accordance with your astrological omens, I suggest you use Coleridge’s quest for ultimate freshness as a driving metaphor in the coming week. Go to the source to get what you need. Dispense with intermediaries. Be as raw as the law allows.

(Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): This is a good time to risk a small leap of faith but not a sprawling vault over a yawning abyss. Feel free and easy about exploring the outer borders of familiar territory, but be cautious about the prospect of wandering into the deep, dark unknown. Be willing to entertain stimulating new ideas but not cracked notions that have little evidence to back them up. Your task is to shake up the status quo just enough to invigorate everyone’s emotional intelligence, even as you take care not to unleash an upheaval that makes everyone crazy.

CAPRICORN

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): “Be respectful to your superiors, if you have any,” said American writer Mark Twain. How do you respond to that impish nudge, Scorpio? Are there any geniuses and heroes out there whom you consider to be worthy of your respect? If not, I urge you to go out in search of some. At this phase of your evolution, you are in special need of people who inspire you with their greatness. It’s crucial for you to learn from teachers and role models who are further along than you are in their mastery of the game of life. I also believe it would be healing for you to feel waves of admiration and reverence.

Audited. Verified. Proven.

(May 21 - June 20): The Japanese word tsundoku describes what happens if you buy a lot of books but never read them, leaving them piled up in a neglected heap. I recommend that you avoid indulging in tsundoku any time soon, Gemini. In fact, I urge you not to acquire any resources that you then proceed to ignore. You are in a phase of your astrological cycle when it’s crucial to make conscientious use of your tools and riches. To let them go to waste would be to dishonor them and make it less likely that you will continue to receive their blessings in the future. Take full advantage of what’s yours.

Beer of the Week Firestone-Walker Brewing Company “Stickee Monkee” Central Coast Quad 2014 Little defines the quadrupel style of beer except for exceedingly high alcohol, but Firestone‑Walker’s attention‑grabbing Stickee Monkee — which fits the bill at 13.4% — presents irrefutable evidence that there should be more “quads” out there. Flavored with Mexican turbinado brown sugar and aged in barrel for a year on average, this is a luxury beer: thick and creamy in mouthfeel, sweet and toasty in flavor, and an altogether serious sipper, worthy of a spin in your wine glass and swish in your mouth. It’s one of the many components for each year’s Anniversary Ale, but we’re happy to have it all by itself, especially since, like wine, it changes vintage to vintage. See firestonebeer.com.

Any information obtained may be used for that purpose. 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 (714) 730‑2727 for information regarding the trustee’s sale or visit this Internet Web site ‑ www.servicelinkASAP.com ‑ for information regarding the sale of this property, using the file number assigned to this case: 117482. 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. A‑4465604 06/19/2014, 06/26/2014, 07/03/2014

768 Ayala Lane Majestic Montecito Estate This lovely Montecito estate was established in the 1920’s and renovated by architect Jock Sewall, who maintained the estate’s integrity, classical charm, and the grace of its park-like setting, harkening back to the best of the Gatsby Estate Era. This lovely estate is fully equipped with family kitchen on the main floor and second butler’s kitchen off the expansive dining room/sitting room and terrace, perfect for entertaining. The terrace patios are enchanting, and the views are amazing! You will agree, as many guests have, this is a very special vacation rental.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING... “I had a great experience with Caitlin Benson as my Realtor®. I have purchased properties before and used other agents and the service I received from Goodwin & Thyne Properties, Inc. was top notch. I would definitely recommend them.” – Justin Williams “Stu Morse did an excellent job of communicating with us. He was always on top of all the details and was an excellent negotiator. He had other clients, yet he always made us feel that our concerns were equally important to him.” – Glenn & Nancy Town

“I would definitely make Goodwin & Thyne Properties my first choice for future house selling or buying.” – Wendy Kelly “Goodwin & Thyne Properties provided excellent professional service throughout, from the beginning of our house search through closing escrow.” – Wendy & Peter Brewer “If you are selling your home and you have the good fortune to select Goodwin & Thyne Properties, look no further, you have found the best.” – Michael & Marie Wedemeyer
