P-ing Up a Rope? County Looks to Soften Legal Blow from Fracking Ban

P IN A POD: Ninety-six cyclic-steaming wells like the ones seen here — a group of wells is known as a pod — dot Pacific Coast Energy Company’s Orcutt Hill oil field. The company has recently applied for 96 more, the approval of which could depend on Measure P.

es, comma.” Such was the answer from County Counsel Mike Ghizzoni on Tuesday when asked whether Measure P has — and would continue to, if voters enact the fracking ban on November 4 — put his office in a vise. But, added Ghizzoni — under the spotlight of supervisors and public commenters at the board meeting — the rules that county staff will hammer out in preparation of the initiative’s potential passage could at least minimize the number of lawsuits expected from landowners and oil companies. In its quest to ban all new fracking, acidizing, and cyclic-steaming operations in the county’s unincorporated areas, the measure has already attracted two legal threats against the county, one from PetroRock LLC and one from ERG Operating Company, both of which run cyclicsteaming wells outside of Santa Maria. As was suggested in Measure P’s own language, the Board of Supervisors voted unanimously in Tuesday’s special meeting to have county planners examine all of the possible legal attacks the measure could foment — vested rights, property takings, and violations of the state and/or federal constitutions — and establish the protocols for dealing with them and protecting itself in the process. The recently formed, industry-backed “No on P” crowd turned out in full force and went comment-to-comment with the blue-shirt-wearing and Measure P–spearheading Water Guardians. (A few politicos also attended the show, including former Sheriff ’s candidate Sergeant Sandra Brown, now in charge of bailiffs; former congressional hopeful Justin Fareed; and Ron DeBlauw, who is challenging Assemblymember Das Williams — a Measure P spokesperson — for his seat.) 10

Where one pro-P speaker likened the purported omnipresence of legal threats to the false promises made in Nigerian email scams, Ghizzoni backed up industry representatives’ assertions that lawsuits are likely. “We are cer-

LOOKING AT LIABILITY: County Counsel Mike Ghizzoni took questions and comments from the supervisors, oil industry officials, and environmentalists about Measure P’s legal risks.

tainly planning for some amount of litigation. We don’t have a history on something like this to predict whether that’s 10 cases, 100 cases, or how much litigation we would expect,” Ghizzoni said, adding that the county doesn’t have insurance coverage to handle takings claims. Ghizzoni — peppered with questions from Supervisors Peter Adam and Steve Lavagnino over the measure’s reaches and those reaches’ effects on the county — said his office was already slammed just in readying for the measure and, if the initiative passes, would likely need two new full-time attorneys to handle Measure P–related claims, not to mention possible lawsuits from environmental groups that could allege that the exemptions go too far. While the measure’s supporters stuck to their argument that Measure P won’t harm

already-permitted projects, oil reps stuck to their counter-argument that it will. Without the county’s protocols in place, Ghizzoni said, existing operations see a “pretty big overlap” with vested rights, which, along with how to treat well-maintenance techniques, could present the biggest pickle. Supervisor Janet Wolf suggested that staff look at including an exemption for maintenance treatments in its protocols; according to Kevin Drude, in charge of the county’s Energy Division, every well “at some point in its lifetime” will require such maintenance, either for minor stimulation or de-gunking. Rachel Hooper, the lawyer for the San Francisco–based firm that wrote Measure P as well as a similar ballot initiative going before San Benito County voters in November, wrote in a letter to Ghizzoni that the measure’s backers support the county’s efforts to “codify the processes for applying these exemptions” as doing so would make for a “smooth transition period” in the weeks between the initiative’s passage and its implementation. Notable Water Guardians Katie Davis and Rebecca Claassen urged the supervisors, respectively, to not be swayed by the “scare tactics” waged by the oil industry and to remember that Santa Barbara County is “far from alone” in trying to ban such drilling operations. On the national level, the federal Government Accountability Office on Monday chastised the Environmental Protection Agency for its lax oversight of water- and earthquake-related risks tied to fracking. The controversial practice hasn’t been on Santa Barbara County’s radar since the supervisors put in place tough regulations in 2011. However, according to Drude, more than half of the county’s 1,200 active oil wells use cyclic steaming, and most of the project proposals on his desk want to use cyclic steam■ ing, too.

news briefs LAW & DISORDER

A former Laguna Blanca student is suing the school and one of its teachers for allegedly failing to report a sexual assault case to authorities. The student, identified as Jane Doe, was a victim of sexual molestation as a child and discussed the incident in front of her teacher, who is a mandated reporter, the lawsuit alleges. It also argues that Jane Doe confided in another teacher — an unrelated incident — who in turn used the information to sexually victimize her. Head of school Rob Hereford said he could not discuss ongoing litigation but explained the school’s top priority is the safety and well-being of its students. According to Jane Doe’s attorney, Josh Lynn, “The whole purpose of this law protecting children is thwarted by a failure to abide by the law to report when a child confides in a trusted adult.” After three weeks of trial, an all-white Santa Barbara jury awarded Carlos Ortiz $1.13 million in his discrimination lawsuit against Teledyne RESON Inc. The 55-year-old engineer from Ecuador had worked for the Goleta sonar equipment maker — a subsidiary of a Danish company — for nearly 20 years when he was fired in 2011 without warning. His attorney, Edward Lowenschuss, detailed how Ortiz had faced discrimination in wages and promotions while less competent Danish employees enjoyed complete immunity. The judgment covers Ortiz’s lost earnings and emotional distress. Teledyne RESON declined to comment. Read the full story at independent .com. A 12-year-old dog named Kitti was killed in a fight with two other dogs at the Santa Barbara County Animal Shelter on 7/24 after an employee accidentally left a kennel gate open. Held in the shelter since June, after she’d attacked and killed a dog, the boxer/pit bull/ terrier mix had been kept in a restricted area. Kitti was designated a “dangerous dog,” but her euthanization was on appeal by her owners at the time of her death. Self-described “Star Whacker” targets Randy and Evi Quaid had their subpoena dreams quashed on 7/28 by Judge Colleen Sterne, who ruled that the Sheriff’s Office isn’t required to provide the couple — who fled to Canada and have warrants out for their arrest related to a 2010 squatting incident in Montecito — with documentation related to those arrests. Sterne ruled fugitives of the court can’t request something of the court and that criminal matters must be handled before civil ones. The subpoena arose as part of a lawsuit the Quaids filed in Indiana in April against bail company American Surety, which they say issued $500,000 bonds for each of them without their consent. A Lompoc gang member convicted of murder and sex crimes and now serving a life sentence in Folsom State Prison has sued the County of Santa Barbara and two jail guards for a beating he allegedly sustained at the County Jail last summer while awaiting trial. Charles Owens claims guards Robert Kirsch and Christopher Johnson — who were fired from the Sheriff’s Office in March after an internal affairs investigation and are now facing local and federal charges — handcuffed him and threw him to

Republicans’ newest spot for wheeling and dealing this election season is the former Ralph Lauren store in the Galleria shopping mall on upper State Street. At campaign headquarters, Chris Mitchum, running for U.S. Representative for the 24th District, said his new office proves the economy needs help. “Out of business,” said Mitchum of the luxury brand’s local demise. “There was nobody to rent it. This is what is happening to our country.” Of his opponent, Lois Capps — who has held the House seat for 16 years — Mitchum said he could not think of one issue where the two saw eye-to-eye: from the IsraelPalestinian crisis to fracking, bond ROUND TWO: After losing his congressional bid measures, immigrant children, and in 2012, Chris Mitchum is again looking to unseat sexual assault on college campuses. Lois Capps. On the first, Obama has “absolutely” not been doing enough to help the Israelis, Mitchum said. “What we don’t need to do is send tens of millions of dollars of humanitarian aid into Hamas.” Mitchum also believes that for areas rich in oil and gas, drilling means more jobs and paying down debt. “All you have to do is look at North Dakota and Texas. There’s about 2 percent unemployment,” he noted. He claims to support Senate Bill 4 — which will regulate fracking in California — and opposes Measure P, which would ban fracking and acidizing in Santa Barbara County. “It will put companies out of business,” he argued and said 18,000 people in the county depend on oil companies for a living while another $10 million in royalties goes to public schools and fire departments. Speaking of money for schools, Mitchum described himself as an “anti-tax” guy and that the problem with bond measures — like the $288 million bond SBCC placed on the November ballot — is that college students vote for them but skip town a few years later, leaving property owners like himself with the bills. And immigrant children? “Send them home,” Mitchum said. “Absolutely.” Calling Obamacare a disaster, Mitchum had ideas to get the cost down: major court reform on doctor malpractice and opening up state borders to increase competition. “We have the best health care in the world. The problem was that it was too expensive,” said Mitchum. With congressional politics on the Central Coast as predictable as the weather, Mitchum has a lot of work ahead of him. The June financial disclosures showed $1.6 million in the Capps campaign piggy bank, almost $10 for every dollar of Mitchum’s. — Kelsey Brugger

CITY The latest effort to begin construction on La Entrada — 123 new hotel rooms to be spread over three square blocks at the intersection of State and Mason streets — has hit a snag with the California Public Utilities Commission (PUC). The PUC has a concern that State Street traffic might back up all the way to the tracks from the stoplight slated for that corner. The lane squeeze and road diet imposed on the lower stretch of the street by the terms of the long-protracted project approval — 13 years, six design changes, three ownership changes — is deemed responsible. The city has submitted detailed plans showing how the problem could be averted by coordinating traffic signals, and the PUC will be meeting to discuss them with the city in August. This summer is the biggest year for construction at more than a dozen schools thanks to a bond measure passed by voters in 2010. A host of upgrades and modernizations are occurring at 15 of the school sites, including brand-new libraries at Adams and Washington elementary schools. Overseeing the six construction companies is the L.A.-based firm TELACU. Most of the companies doing the work are based in Santa

ENVIRONMENT The latest champions for the honeybee have turned out to be Pesticide Action Network, Center for Food Safety, and Beyond Pesticides, which jointly filed against the Department of Pesticide Regulation in the Superior Court for Alameda County, challenging the state’s decision on 6/13 to expand the use of two neonicotinoid insecticides — Venom Insecticide and Dinotefuran 20SG; neither has been reviewed for its effect on pollinators. Neonicotinoid poisons are used in the battle against huanglongbing (HLB), a disease carried by Asian citrus psyllids that has devastated orchards in Florida and for which there is no cure. The bug was found in Summerland in March — but not carrying HLB — and 44 percent of tree owners opted out of the county’s spray program using imidacloprid, a neonicotinoid banned by the European Union for its deadly effect on bees.

POPPING THE QUESTION: District elections are no longer the subject of academic debate as Barry Cappello (center) sued City Hall, charging the current at-large system of elections is racially polarized. Parties to that suit include Sebastian Aldana (left), Frank Bañales (bottom right), and Cruzito Cruz (right), all of whom have run unsuccessfully for City Council.

Racially Polarized? Lawsuit Filed Against At-Large Elections

W

BY N I C K W E L S H

hether construed as a promise or threat, prominent Santa Barbara attorney Barry Cappello was good on his word: He filed a lawsuit against the City of Santa Barbara this week, charging that the city’s method of electing councilmembers at large — as opposed to by specific districts — has effectively disenfranchised Latino voters by diluting the Latino voting block, thus violating the California Voting Rights Act of 2001. Although Latinos make up 38 percent of the city’s population, Cappello noted that only one — Cathy Murrillo — has been elected since 2001. Since 1968 — when district elections were first initiated — not one Latino has been elected mayor. While the cause of such statistical lopsidedness has been much debated by Santa Barbara’s warring political factions over the years, state law is fairly simple; if there’s a significant difference between how Latino voters cast their ballots from how their Anglo counterparts do, that constitutes “racially polarized voting.” Cappello’s lawsuit was filed on behalf of five individuals, three of whom — Frank Bañales, Cruzito Cruz, and Sebastian Aldana — have run unsuccessfully for City Council over the years. “Racially polarized voting consists both of voter cohesion on the part of Latino voters and of bloc voting by the non-Latino electorate against the choices of Latino voters,” Cappello declared in his lawsuit. The only remedy, he said, was the elimination of the at-large voting system and its replacement by district elections. Among current councilmembers, there’s no strong support for district elections and considerable opposition. In recent weeks, an ad hoc committee of councilmembers has met with district election supporters in hopes of working out an alternative to litigation. The supporters made it clear from the outset they intended to sue. Thus far, no city sued for violating the Voting Rights Act has managed to prevail; many have agreed to switch election schemes as part of a negotiated settlement.

Cappello took the case, in part, as a favor to a longtime friend and former councilmember Leo Martinez, who led the charge for district elections in 1990, coming up only a few hundred votes shy of victory. Should he prevail, he’ll be eligible to collect attorney’s fees from City Hall. Mayor Helene Schneider, a skeptic where district elections are concerned, expressed “disappointment” at what she termed a “premature lawsuit.” Schneider noted last week that the council voted to authorize demographer Douglas Johnson to conduct a voting study to determine the extent to which — if any — Santa Barbara’s voting patterns are “racially polarized.” In previous conversations, she noted that minority candidates like Murillo or Das Williams successfully garnered votes from all over, while Latino candidates like Cruz — who has never sought to raise the funds necessary to wage a credible campaign — performed poorly throughout the city. Because Santa Barbara is a charter city, it falls to voters to ratify any change in the voting system. For the matter to be placed before city voters this November — an off-year election for City Hall — the council would have to authorize the vote and refer it to the County Board of Supervisors for inclusion on the ballot no later than August 8. To date, no such effort has taken place, and at City Hall, there’s been considerable resistance to being stampeded into action. Instead, several councilmembers have expressed interest in voting to place the matter before city voters next November, while engaging the community in the traditional avalanche of public meetings and workshops that attend most, though not all, important policy considerations. The coalition for district elections represents an intriguing cross-section of alienated activists from all political stripes unified by an abiding sense that lower-income neighborhood interests and concerns have been poorly ■ represented by the current system.

Congressmember Lois Capps said she found impasse between Time Warner Cable and most of the cable companies serving Southern California over the broadcasts of Los Angeles Dodger baseball games “to be very unfortunate,” adding that it’s gone on “far too long.” While Capps expressed hope that all the parties could resolve their outstanding differences so that baseball fans could enjoy “the second half of the season,” she was not among the eight California congressmembers who petitioned the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to intervene. In response, FCC Chair Tom Wheeler put Time Warner executive Robert Marcus on notice and stipulated a specific timeline detailing how the dispute will be resolved in expeditious fashion. Time Warner has demanded $4-$5 a month per basic service subscriber in exchange for Dodger game programming, carried by the Dodger-owned SportsNet LA. Cable companies — like Cox — have objected not only to the high price but also to imposing such a burden on basic-service subscribers, many of whom might have little interest in Dodger games. The issue has been a thorn in the side for Southland sports fans since the season started, and it has picked up steam as the Dodgers hit first place, its pitchers posting no fewer than two no-hitters. Although Capps did not participate in the request for FCC — Nick Welsh intervention, she supported it, said her spokesperson Chris Meagher.

Mark Massari (pictured), UCSB’s director of athletics for the past six years, is departing for Oregon State University (OSU), where he accepted a deputy director of athletics position earlier this month. UCSB’s intercollegiate ath-

letes had an 85 percent graduation rate during Massari’s tenure, second highest in the UC system. In competition, seven Gaucho teams made 20 different postseason appearances in the past six years. Gary Cunningham will serve as interim director of athletics beginning August 1 as a national search is conducted for Massari’s replacement.

INTERNATIONAL Federal attorneys have made their first big move to dismiss a lawsuit that alleges the United States, along with eight other countries, has violated a 46-year-old treaty to dismantle its nuclear arsenal. The lawsuit was filed in April — in U.S. Federal Court as well as in the International Court of Justice in The Hague, Netherlands — by the the tiny Pacific nation of the Marshall Islands, which the U.S. bombarded with nuclear test weapons between 1946 and 1958. The government claims the lawsuit should be thrown out because of procedural and jurisdictional issues but does not deny it’s in violation of the treaty. Santa Barbara’s Nuclear Age Peace Foundation has consulted on the case. ■

Bowl Parking Problems

A tiff over a parking agreement during Santa Barbara Bowl performances has been on the sidelines all year and took center stage last week. Dating back to the late 1990s, the Bowl has rented out nearby Santa Barbara High School parking lots for approximately $48,000 a year, overseeing parking operations and directing traffic. Concertgoers fork over $10 for a spot, and the Bowl gets the revenue. But now the school wants to take over management and enjoy a bigger slice of the pie. Late last year, the Bowl was informed that its contract would be terminated in eight months — per the memorandum of understanding — thereby ending the agreement midseason. Caught off guard, Bowl executive director Rick Boller cried foul, and after some back-and-forth with high school principal John Becchio and district administrators, it was decided that the agreement would remain status quo for the rest of the season, which runs April through November. Tunes echo from the outdoor stadium roughly 30 days each year. Taking over the lots could be a moneymaker for the high school’s athletic programs, said girls basketball coach Andrew Butcher. In fact, the school successfully ran the parking operations for 20 years. “It’s not difficult,” Butcher added. Plus, the school could hire similar security staff, he said. “The riffraff are not paying $10 to park their car,” Butcher added in response to concerns raised that hooliganism in the parking lot would increase without the Bowl’s security. Boller acknowledged that the schools are in need of funds and said the Bowl has an education outreach program to distribute money to school art programs, setting aside a dollar from each concert ticket purchased. He contended the school’s parking management prior to the current agreement was “inconsistent,” and the Bowl has taken steps to ensure neighbors are happy and trash is picked up the morning after. “Our ultimate goal is to make sure we don’t take a step backward with our patrons,” said Boller. How the dispute will play out remains to be seen. Superintendent David Cash said the district will continue to have conversations with the Bowl about their future — Kelsey Brugger relationship. 12

ALL DAY — in the bar —

LACK FIGHTS BACK: David Lack (right) emerges from a grueling day on the witness stand, accompanied by attorney Robert Sanger to his left.

Who’s the Real David Lack?

Scheming Con Man or Fumbling Stumblebum?

T

BY N I C K W E L S H he David Lack who showed up to testify this week as star witness in his own defense was an utterly different animal than the politically connected building contractor described throughout the three-week trial by prosecutor Brian Cota, who claims Lack bilked area banks out of $1.2 million and a close friend and Republican Party high roller out of another $300,000. Instead, the jurors saw a middle-aged man dazed and tased by life’s vicissitudes, shirttails protruding from beneath a rumpled blue sweater, and shoelaces flopping a few feet ahead of his olive-green Keds as he trod from the defense table to the witness box. It was an excruciating performance by someone seemingly eager to please but unable to deliver as key details of his own life kept dancing away. In response to many questions, Lack would squint hard, rack his memory, and exhale loudly before replying “I don’t know” or “I’m not sure.” Lack testified he grew up in Davenport, Iowa, and attended Catholic school until his parents divorced when he was in 4th grade. After that, Lack and his siblings moved in with an uncle outside of Minneapolis, where he learned construction skills fixing up old family barns. He barely graduated from high school, he recounted — growing visibly upset — because he had such trouble reading he never finished a book in his life. He grew even more distraught, turning away from the jury as he explained he had trouble processing information. From 1991-1995, Lack worked closely as a political confidante to Michael Huffington, who represented Santa Barbara in Congress one term and then ran unsuccessfully for U.S. Senate. In 1995, Lack passed the contractor’s test, having failed it, he said, the first two times. In the next 10 years, Lack and his company landed major construction gigs at UCSB and along the Ventura waterfront, not to mention numerous Montecito remodels worth anywhere from $1 million-$12 million. Along the way, he emerged as a presence with the Republican Central Committee, flying to fundraisers in Boca Raton and Las Vegas, hobnobbing

with the likes of Newt Gingrich and Rudy Giuliani. In 2007, Lack applied for lines of credit with Rabobank and the Bank of Santa Barbara worth a combined $1.2 million. In the process, he signed documents claiming as collateral real estate he estimated was worth $1.5 million, but which he, in fact, never owned. On the stand, Lack would deny lying, insisting he told Bank of Santa Barbara cofounder Gregg Bigger that he was “interested” in buying the properties in question. It was Bigger, Lack insisted, who instructed repeatedly, “Put it down. Put it down.” Bigger, who has not yet testified, was eager for the new bank to get new business, Lack said. Lack eventually got behind on his payments, at which time bank officials discovered he owned no property. Even after this, however, Lack would still sign other financial documents claiming these same properties as real estate assets. During the trial, Lack repeatedly testified he signed whatever documents were put in front of him by his company’s financial officers. “I’m not good at this office stuff,” he explained.“I’m good being out in the field, making stuff happen.” At one point, Cota suggested Lack had concocted a complex scheme to launder the loan money into his personal bank account and then to a friend of his and then back into the corporate bank account, all so he’d appear far more liquid than he really was. This, Cota argued, was designed to increase the company’s bonding capacity. Lack’s response? He never did any such things. He wouldn’t know how. Bank officials ultimately blew the whistle and pulled the plug on Lack’s loans. Along the way, he took a $300,000 investment from his friend and political fellow traveler Mary Belle Snow to help start a new bank specializing in inner-city redevelopment schemes as well as green construction projects. She tearfully testified last week that Lack gave his word none of her assets would be touched until the bank got off the ground. She said she didn’t find out her money was gone until it was all spent. Dabbing tears from her eyes, Snow asked everyone in court, but especially Lack, “Do you have any idea how this feels?” The trial should conclude later this week. ■

Battle for the Bubble

news briefs cont’d

Santa Barbara City Attorney Ariel Calonne said he’s fully prepared to defend the city’s so-called bubble-ordinance despite contentions by a prominent anti-abortion attorney in Ojai who insists the law runs afoul of a recent Supreme Court ruling that concluded Massachusetts’s buffer bill is unconstitutional. Calonne’s announcement came one day after meeting with members of the City Council and a few hours after talking with attorney Katie Short, legal director for the Life Legal Defense Foundation. Calonne said the city’s ordinance requires only an eight-foot buffer between anti-abortion activists and the driveway entrance to the Planned Parenthood clinic on Garden Street as opposed to the 35-foot buffer required by the Massachusetts law. Short noted the Supreme Court’s interest in allowing sidewalk counselors — as opposed to anti-abortion protestors — to get close enough to people entering the clinic so they can hand out leaflets describing alternatives and engage in conversation. The city’s ordinance, she contended, still makes such interaction all but impossible. Calonne pointed to a 9th Circuit Court ruling from 1997 upholding the city’s ordinance in which the justices specifically concluded that it allowed conversation to take place. Short said she has not yet made up her mind whether to file a lawsuit. She said she had hoped to persuade the council to either drop the existing ordinance or — Nick Welsh agree not to enforce it.

The nine-story Granada Theatre could soon get usurped as the tallest inhabited building in the county if the Chumash Casino Resort expands to include (among other features) a new 12-story hotel wing. The tribe’s plans, presented in its 556-page environmental analysis released earlier this month, envision a hotel tower that would offer 215 new rooms (in addition to the existing hotel’s 106), a rooftop pool deck, conference room, and restaurant. It would come with an additional 75,000 square feet of gaming space and administrative offices, as well as a new five-story parking garage for an extra 584 spots (in addition to the resort’s existing 1,957 spaces). The current four-story hotel and three-story casino would MOVING UP: Chumash chair Vincent Armenta said also get a facelift, including a the tribe has received only one comment on its plans. buffet and food court. Under the plans — which were first floated several months ago and have changed slightly since — the resort would still be limited to 2,000 gaming machines, as the tribe’s contract with the state, up for renewal in 2020, doesn’t allow beyond that. The growth, as the tribe stated in its assessment, is meant to ease “overcrowding and circulation issues.” Construction could start as soon as this fall. But some Santa Ynez Valley activists are crying foul over the plans, citing significant issues with the height of the hotel tower — given its proximity to the airport — and allocating water resources — especially in a time of drought — to the anticipated 1,200 extra visitors per day. Tribal chair Vincent Armenta said the tribe couldn’t build the hotel out rather than up, as much of the reservation is already developed, but he added that the building is “well below the flight path.” (A representative for the Federal Aviation Administration didn’t return requests for comment.) The Santa Ynez River Water Conservation District currently supplies the resort with 22,600 gallons of water per day, but the tribe estimates it will need an extra 35,700 gallons per day when the new design is realized; whether the district would be able to meet that demand at this time remains uncertain. If it couldn’t, the analysis stated, the tribe could get its additional water via four existing wells on the reservation. That plan presents twofold concerns, activists said. One, they alleged, if the tribe asserts its rights to groundwater underneath the reservation — surface-water rights are granted based on a long-standing federal case — it could set a precedent statewide. Two, the project sits within the Uplands Basin, which provides water to many valley residents. Armenta cautioned that the federal rights “are not unlimited.” Citizens and county officials have until August 14 to submit comments to the tribal leaders, who will respond in a final environmental document. One public hearing is planned for Thursday, July 31, at 6 p.m. at the casino’s Samala Showroom. Comments can also be mailed to the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, Attn: Vincent Armenta, — Lyz Hoffman Tribal Chairman, PO Box 517, Santa Ynez, CA 93460.

Sanity Strikes Gang Injunction Dismissed

L

ast week, Judge Colleen Sterne displayed genuine courage and wisdom when she rejected the City of Santa Barbara’s gang injunction. This highly controversial and contested measure had been proposed and supported by District Attorney Tara Haaland-Ford Joyce Dudley, Police Chief Cam Sanchez, Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider, and the majority of the City Council. The injunction named 11 alleged gang members who would have been prohibited from engaging in a host of constitutionally protected behaviors, chief Cathy Murillo among them the right to associate, in this case with other alleged gang members. The City Council voted to approve the injunction behind closed doors in March 2011. Since then, a wide array of community groups, from the S.B. Association Gregg Hart

noted, have done an excellent job responding to gangs by availing themselves of the numerous legal tools already at hand. Santa Barbara’s citizenry, she concluded, were not quivering in their homes, afraid to go outside, as is the case in other cities with more serious gang problems. It’s worth noting that Santa Barbara remains the only city in the United States where a judge has rejected a petition for such an injunction. Sterne is not the only one to thank for this sensible outcome. While many attorneys participated in the legal effort to challenge the injunction, Tara Haaland-Ford and Stephen Dunkle were in the trenches from the outset, and their thankless determination

Santa Barbara’s citizenry, she concluded, were not quivering in their homes, afraid to go outside, as is the case in other cities with more serious gang problems. of Realtors Board of Directors to PODER, voiced their opposition. A team of attorneys challenged the injunction in court. The whole process cost well over a million dollars, not to mention gratuitous civic alienation and acrimony — none of which the city was in short Cam Sanchez supply of before this misconceived idea was proposed. Three years later, it finally reached the courtroom of Judge Sterne. We were much impressed during the course of the trial by the gravity and intent with which Judge Sterne Joyce Dudley weighed the evidence presented by both sides. In the end, she concluded that yes, gangs do constitute a serious law enforcement concern but that the extraordinary legal powers given to law enforcement in the form of this injunction were justified neither by Santa Barbara’s level of gang activity nor, for that matter, by the law. The police, Sterne Helene Schneider

and tenacity proved critical. Elected officials Cathy Murillo and Gregg Hart also were actively opposed. It’s well worth remembering that the proposed injunction was never afforded the same public review that even the most minor tree-trimming ordinance must endure in Santa Barbara. City officials have countered that court actions are not typically subject to public hearings in the City Council. While technically true, that argument has always been way too clever for its own good, and the council’s credibility has suffered accordingly. Thanks to Judge Sterne and the team of attorneys fighting the injunction, Santa Barbara has the opportunity for a fresh start. Let’s hope the knuckleheads don’t do anything stupid this Fiesta. ■ July 31, 2014

A Once and Future Dog

VIVA EL PERRO: We all pick the myths we

pretend to live by and confuse them with historical fact. Me, I’ve always been a sucker for the Statue of Liberty and Zorro. Such notions might be relevant as we enter one of Santa Barbara’s greatest collective delusions ever, the 90th celebration of Fiesta. Sure, Fiesta is a great time for everyone to get drunk, act the fool, and crack total strangers with cascarone confetti eggs. Fiesta has been dismissed by some of my favorite revisionists as an exaltation of a past that never was, but that’s not quite right. For a brief glimmer of a historic second, California was neither Spanish, Mexican, nor American. It was Californio, and in that blink of a pre-Gold Rush eye, it was run for, by, and of Californios, a land populated by polyglottal mutts from all over the globe but unaffiliated with any flags of origin. Conspicuously written out of this fabulous narrative are the Chumash, who only happened to live here 12,000 years. In its passing, Californio has become the land of languid lassitude, perpetually strumming guitars, and a cavalcade of endlessly golden sunsets into which los caballeros are forever riding their great steeds, their caballeras presumably swooning in erotic flutter discreetly offstage. Even then, this idyllic Eden had the taint of unwanted immigrants. But back then, they were the land-grabbing Yankees from New England, young men who, according to historical accounts, congregated in uncomfortably large numbers in public parks,

urinated freely wherever they stood, got drunk, picked fights, and laughed loudly while making lewd remarks to the women passing by. Sound familiar? No authorities were so foolhardy, however, to seek a gang injunction to curb this “substantial and unreasonable nuisance.” With the Gold Rush of 1849 and the subsequent Yankee invasion, the displaced landed gents of Californio persuasion rose up in revolt and became bandits. Zorro is perhaps the most famous, stealing gold from Santa Ynez cattlemen engorged on profits made by selling beef at extortionate prices to the 49ers. He also sliced off his victims’ ears, keeping them on the equine equivalent of a key chain. The real Zorro, of course, was a certified bandit badass named Joaquin Murrieta — not to be confused with the four other Joaquins then also plundering and pillaging — who eventually would be hunted down by the Yankees, killed, and decapitated, his head placed in an oversized pickle jar (big-screen TV, as well as due process, not having been invented yet). For anyone remotely aware of how history is a giant snake forever swallowing its own tale, the ironies are inescapable. Murrieta is the namesake of the border town recently made infamous by the hate-intoxicated protests waged there by residents against the kids crossing the border while fleeing unimaginable horrors in Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador. I understand how 58,000 unaccompanied kids, any place, is a logistical nightmare. But

when you appreciate the extent that these are our chickens coming home to roost, it’s hard to feel too righteous about the sanctity of the border. For decades, these countries were ruled by the United Fruit Company (hence the term “banana republic”), and if the populace got uppity about democratic rights, the U.S. Marines would be dispatched — with considerable frequency — to remind them no such rights existed. By the 1990s, the crows congregating at certain beaches in El Salvador had grown so fat picking away at the human remains dumped there by the death squads that they could no longer fly. Doing the dumping were paramilitary quasi-governmental agents paid for by the U.S. taxpayer to the tune of $6 billion. Salvadoran refugees fled to Los Angeles, where they formed gangs initially for protection and subsequently for profit and predation. They got so scary we started deporting them back at a clip of 1,500 a month. Little wonder El Salvador would become the murder capital of the universe, boasting at one time a homicide rate of 100 per 100,000. Things there have cooled off somewhat, and that distinction is now held by neighboring Honduras, now said by the United Nations to be twice as deadly as Iraq in 2012. In the first six months of this year, 500 teens there (under 18) were murdered. Nationwide, 91 out of every 100,000 residents is killed to death. Imagine 91 homicides a year in Santa Barbara, home to 100,000 residents. In a bad year, we have three.

More than that, we’re ready to declare a state of siege and suspend the constitution. Nationally, we spent $800 million on Central America since 2008, and yeah, Obama is talking about $3.7 billion now. But the vast bulk of both have gone — or will go — to police and military functions. By contrast, for a mere $62 million, you could put all 58,000 in school for an entire year. Maybe a community like ours, where it’s a capital offense to speak harshly to one’s dog, could step up in some fashion. Between Direct Relief, the fire department, a ton of vacant land at the airport, and a few National Guard armories that just sit unoccupied — not to mention more nonprofits per square foot than any community on the planet — maybe there’s a way we could chip in rather than shipping these kids out and inserting them, face first, into the wood chippers from whence they’ve fled. I understand with immigration there are no good answers. But what the hell happened to taking care of “your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning”? What about “the wretched refuse of your teeming shore”? These are the words inscribed on the Statue of Liberty, written, it turns out, by a socialist Zionist poet, in response to the mass exodus of Russian Jews fleeing yet another antisemitic pogrom sweeping the shtetls. Sound familiar? If not, it should. Next time you’re in New York, be sure to crack a cascarone on the head of Lady Liberty. When you get arrested, say the dog sent you. In the meantime, Viva La. — Nick Welsh

Witches, Slaves, and Rodeo

W

hen I moved to this city with its outstanding city college and university, I believed it to be an enlightened place to live. That is why I was shocked and saddened to see the rodeo come to town during Fiesta. I find it backward and barbaric to celebrate Santa Barbara’s heritage by tormenting innocent animals. One hundred years ago, circus sideshows had morbidly obese women and conjoined twins to gawk at. This ceased to be when mankind saw its immorality. The rodeo should be canned or at the very least confined to games between horse and rider. We don’t celebrate the early American colonies by showing witch burnings, and we don’t celebrate the old South by holding slave beatings. Now it is time to stop celebrating Old Spanish Days with animal cruelty!

Greenville Water for Montecito?

G

reenville’s Indian Valley Community Services District proposes to sell 1,000 acre-feet of water to your Montecito Water District, a plan that I support. Many Indian Valley residents oppose this sale and onetime water transfer, especially ranchers and farmers. Indian Valley is truly god’s country. The air and water are clean, the pace of life is slow, and we know our neighbors. But a wrecked economy is the price we pay for this natural beauty: We are barely able to keep our schools going, public infrastructures are aging, and good job opportunities for our children are almost nonexistent. We need to keep our economy afloat as desperately as you need water. I believed it is our moral obligation to not hoard our precious water resources and to reasonably share these resources with California citizens in desperate need. I hope Montecito might respond by helping Indian Valley improve its quality of life in this very impoverished region. IVCSD would receive a substantial sum in this water sale, but this money will be spent in a heartbeat to pay for the district’s immediate needs. My question is: What are the citizens and officials of the Montecito Water District willing to do to help address Indian Valley’s fears and assure the citizens this will really be a win-win-win scenario? How can our two communities, hundreds of miles apart, form a bond? That potential

connection must be nurtured and cultivated if we are both to succeed. —Ken Donnell, Greenville, CA

War in Gaza

A

mazing that 100 out of 100 U.S. senators approved the Israeli invasion (thanks to American Israel Public Affairs Committee lobby) and said that the rockets from Gaza were unprovoked. Israel has imprisoned the entire population of Gaza for eight years, and that is not a provocation? Israel broke the 2012 cease-fire agreement 120 times, has randomly imprisoned hundreds of Palestinians, and assassinated many despite its promise of no hostility. That’s not provocation? The U.S. has blood on its hands. U.S. taxpayers are supplying or funding every explosive that tears a child apart in Gaza. I’m so ashamed of the U.S. government. I’m so ashamed of the corrupted media and citizens who don’t — John Azevedo, Ojai take responsibility.

he flare-up of violence is deeply saddening, but Hamas’s charter specifically calls for the violent destruction of Israel. After the Twin Towers fell, Hamas brigades were dancing in the street. Within weeks of joining Fatah to form a unified Palestinian government, Hamas kidnapped and slaughtered three Israeli teens. When Israel left Gaza in 2004 to give Palestinians more autonomy, Hamas took control and started a wave of suicide bombings. Israel has photographic proof the current rocket attacks are being launched from hospitals, mosques, apartments, and playgrounds. Under international law, Israel has the right to protect its citizens. In the face of the facts, we can only hope that Israel and Palestinians will find leaders to negotiate an enduring peace. —Mark Silverberg, S.B.

Tradition and History Are This Year’s Old Spanish Days Theme COURTESY S.B. HISTORICAL SOCIETY

hen a blue-eyed blond takes over the reins for this year’s Old Spanish Days Fiesta, don’t assume he is a Johnny-comelately to our community, immune to its Hispanic heritage. El Presidente Dennis Rickard is the great-great-grandson of José de la Guerra, the last comandante of the presidio and patriarch of the first family of Santa Barbara in the 19th century. What this reveals is that there are thousands of residents with “gringo” names such as Luton, Vandervoort, or Poole — with a fair complexion to match — who are actually direct descendants of the Spanish presidio soldiers who settled Santa Barbara more than 230 years ago. (Full disclosure: The Santa Barbara Independent Editor in Chief Marianne Partridge is married to Jim Poett, another direct descendent of José de la Guerra.) However, the charm of Fiesta is that it is incredibly inclusive. It isn’t meant for just the Spanish descendientes and those of Mexican heritage to participate, and for the rest to look on. Fiesta is a time when all are welcome to participate in the celebration — an Old Spanish Days party. In the latter part of the 19th century— after California became a U.S. state, even as the language changed from Spanish to English, the dress morphed from side-split breeches to long unadorned straight pants, and lace mantillas gave way to cotton bonnets — there was still a nostalgia for those halcyon “old Spanish days” of California celebrations. Those new to town were willing to embrace the local culture since they sensed it was so important. So Spanish descendientes such as the Ruiz and Cota families readily brought immigrants like the More, Den, Packard, and Dreyfus clans into the fold, teaching them the traditional Spanish dances to perform for President Benjamin Harrison in 1891. This inclusiveness was readily seen when business and community leaders conceived of the first Old Spanish Days celebration: The planning committee included old-time Spanish families and

John “Jack” Rickard

new faces eager to participate and incorporate the town’s love of history. This all-embracing mind-set is demonstrated by the diversity in ethnicity and heritage of Fiesta’s presidentes ever since. Some presidents have been Native Sons or Daughters of California (Ellen Harte, Rudy Castillo); some were scions of Yankee pioneers (J.J. Hollister); others have been sons of European immigrants (Bob Kallman, George Castagnola, Ralph McNall); and some were immigrants themselves, such as Meta Duell, born in Germany, or Michael Lemus, born in Mexico. Of course, several have been presidio soldier descendants, such as Bill Luton, Charles Storke, and Wendy Ayala. The first official presidente, Dwight Murphy, was elected the second year of Fiesta and served 1925-1926. He came from Pennsylvania and immersed himself in the community as a quiet, behind-the-scenes leader and philanthropist. He bred the golden palomino back from near extinction, and it became a feature in Fiesta’s historic parade, for which Murphy played a leading role. The second presidente was county supervisor Sam Stanwood, who served Fiesta for 20 years from 19271947. Although Sam was a native son, born in Santa Barbara in 1870, his parents were New Englanders through and through, hailing from Maine. For almost the entire time Stanwood served as el presidente, he was also serving as county supervisor. The continuity of his leadership did much to secure stability for the organization in its formative years. His longevity in office (25-plus years) as county supervisor gave him an opportunity to take advantage of his political contacts. Stanwood built the County Bowl as a Works Progress Administration project to provide a natural setting/stage for the historic musical pageants presented every Fiesta by Charles Pressley, another newcomer to town. Stanwood was injured in an automobile accident and resigned his leadership role in 1947. The board of directors appointed a new president CONTINUED on p. 25

The elder Rickard quickly adopted the Spanish California culture. His qu children were raised out on the family land Rancho ch El Encinitas in Los Alamos, where they all spoke Spanish as their first language until they entered Sp school in Santa Barbara. James was president of the sc La Primavera Association — a forerunner of Old Spanish Days — which celebrated Santa Barbara’s Sp history through the arts and pageantry. He was also hi a founding director of Old Spanish Days Fiesta. f James’s son, Jack Rickard, was steeped in local culture and ready to initiate refreshing changes to cu Old O Spanish Days when he came to the fore in 1948. Jack Ja moved the mercados — which were a hodgepodge of booths and tables selling wares in El Paseo po courtyard — to De la Guerra Plaza. His cousin, the co architect Robert Ingle Hoyt, designed a new market ar of palm-covered ramadas, where nonprofit organizations sold food and vendors hawked specialty ni handicraft s. Under his aegis, Old Spanish Days put a ha focus fo back onto history.

These adobes consisted of the “old adobe,” as it was called, and the Covarrubias Adobe.

RIDING TALL: This year’s El Presidente, Dennis Rickard, poses with the saddle his grandfather, James Rickard, had made in the 1920s by renowned saddle maker Luis Ortega and master silversmith John Field. Dennis’s father, John “Jack” Rickard, also used this saddle when he rode in the Fiesta Parade as El Presidente in 1948-49.

most of his time to working with the parade. With an average of 500-600 horses and riders participating, it is considered the largest annual equestrian parade in the nation. Dennis grew up with many of the riders and outriders, who came from neighboring ranches and have been part of the parade for decades. A CPA by profession, Dennis also applied his fiscal management skills to El Desfile Histórico. When other events and venues for Old Spanish Days were increasing dramatically in cost, he managed to reduce the overhead by 20 percent for the signature event of Old Spanish Days Fiesta. (Dennis had the untimely task of fundraising during tax season two years ago. Nonetheless, he holds the organizational record for raising the greatest amount of cash.) For the 2014 parade, Dennis will be literally riding out on antiquity; he will be using the saddle his grandfather James Rickard had made in the 1920s by famed saddle maker Luis Ortega. A stunning piece of craftsmanship, it is adorned with more than 1,940 pieces of silver hand-pressed by master silversmith John Field. Moreover, Dennis’s father, Jack Rickard, also rode with that saddle when he served as el presidente in 1949. The saddle will be reprised in one more guest appearance at the end of this year — Old Spanish Days Fiesta received an unprecedented invitation to appear in the Rose Parade on New Year’s Day 2015. This will be the first time in more than 60 years that Santa Barbara will be featured in the parade, which has a worldwide viewing audience of 54 million. The entry will be an equestrian unit highlighting the historic wedding of Anita de la Guerra to Bostonian Alfred Robinson in 1836. Dennis Rickard’s theme for this year’s Fiesta is aptly Celebra Tu Historia: Honor Your History. While descendientes can reclaim their heritage, it is an invitation, Presidente Rickard said, for all others to share in the celebration. “If during the days you spend with us enjoying the music, dance, and fun, you leave with a deeper appreciation of our history and of the traditions of our earlier culture,” he stated,“our efforts will have been rewarded.” ●

ack in 2010, Brian Thompson of Telegraph Brewing Company concocted a batch of beer to coincide with Santa Barbara’s legendary five-day Old Spanish Days Fiesta, which kicked off on July 30.“We didn’t brew nearly enough,” recalled Thompson, who gave most of it away to friends and existing customers.“It may have been gone before Fiesta.” This year, he’s making more than 10 times as much Cerveza de Fiesta, a malty, Czech-style pilsner with a colorful, Mexico-minded label that’s become the unofficial brew of the annual citywide party.“It was just a fun celebration beer, but then it really took on a life of its own,” said Thompson, who’s been making craft beer on Salsipuedes Street since 2006 and now considers this cerveza his main summer seasonal offering, available from the Fourth of July until supplies run out (usually around September).“We aren’t the official beer of Fiesta by any stretch,” he clarified, “but we do make a point of teaming up as much as we can with Old Spanish Days.” A big part of the allure is that the beer proves an excellent companion to warm weather, refreshingly easy to drink at just 5 percent alcohol but with enough body and flavor to qualify as a serious craft brew. “Most of our beers aren’t brewed strictly to style guidelines, but this is the one beer that we do take great pains to brew as accurately as possible to the Bohemian or Czech pilsner style,” said Thompson. That means he uses 100 percent pilsner malt and 100 percent

This year, Sullivan Goss decided to present an entire exhibition of Fiesta-oriented art. Called Las Pinturas de la Fiesta, the installment features oils from artists spanning the 20th century. Pictured below is a mural by Juan Goya Usamo rendered in 1941. The large painting hung in The Spanish Kitchen restaurant in L.A. until its 1961 closure.

y ears ago, when Frank Machado was making one of his regular visits to area schools with his horse, a small boy confronted him.“You’re not a real cowboy. You’re not Rides the carrying a gun.” West Machado still has to chuckle: “That went out with the Wild West.” Nowadays, a cowboy is more likely to be toting antibiotics for cattle, said Machado, who is Fiesta’s honorary vaquero and will be riding in Friday’s big parade. “It’ll be the first parade I’ve been in,” he told me by phone. He’s a modest, hardworking man. You can also see him competing in the Fiesta rodeo old-timer’s events and in roping events with his grandson Cutter. At 69, Machado hasn’t slowed down. Born in Santa Maria and now living in Nipomo, he works for Western Stockman’s Market in Famoso, near Bakersfield, buying and selling cattle. He also roams Nevada, Oregon, and Idaho, and other western states, busy with the cattle market. Machado grew up on the Enos Ranch north of Santa Maria on Suey Road, helping his father and uncle work — what else? — cattle. After high school, he majored in animal science at Cal Poly and then began a career with the Newhall Land and Farming outfit on the Suey Ranch. During 30 years there, his duties included running the cowcalf operations, as well as developing and improving the ranch horse-breeding program. He also oversaw ranches in Newhall and Ventura County and ran pasture leases in California and Nevada. In 1964, he began work with Western Stockman’s Market in Famoso. Machado began involvement with the -H youth program in high school, and for the past 18 years has brought a horse to preschool and elementary schools to teach youngsters to rope and understand how important horses are in today’s ranching operations and about the respect and love cowboys have for their horses. Even in today’s mechanized ranching world,“There’s no substitute for a good horse,” he said. His good horse is Wrangler, a 7-year-old bay. He is a past president of the Santa Barbara County chapter of the California Cattlemen’s Association. He and his wife of 47 years, Barbara, have two children and seven grandchildren.

Time Encapsulated Finding History in the Art of the S.B.

above: Competition is tough for the boys and girls who vie each year for Junior Spirit honor. This year’s coveted title went to 10-year-old Natalie Mowers. Mowers is a 4th grader at Hollister Elementary school, where science and social studies are her favorite subjects. She also loves playing soccer, surfing, and, of course, dancing. You can see Mowers show off her flamenco steps as she leads this year’s Desfile de los Niños (Children’s Parade) up State Street Saturday, August 2. left: Talia Ortega Vestal is no stranger to accomplishment. The hard-working Santa Barbara High School senior maintains a 4.4 GPA, is her school’s cheer and song leader, received a Global Leadership Ambassador scholarship, and was chosen as this year’s Spirit for Old Spanish Days. The Junior Spirit in 2009, Ortega Vestal has been dancing since age 4 and does flamenco year-round. She performed at Old Spanish Days kickoff event Fiesta Pequeña, which took place Wednesday, July 30, at the Old Mission.

Although the Old Spanish Days celebration only runs for four days each year, visual reminders of the 19th-century era abound throughout the city year-round in the form of public art. Writer/historian Erin Graffy de Garcia has kindly sleuthed out the Fiesta-themed creations that pepper our town in her recent book, Old Spanish Days: Santa Barbara History Through Public Art. “Santa Barbara loves, lives, breathes — dare I say — seeps history,” she writes in the introduction. “This is why you might find history where you least expect it: a public space, a restaurant, or even an office building is likely to blossom forth with some vestige of history preserved on a canvas, painted on a wall,l, flashed in a weathervane, captured in a tile mural, or enshrined in a frieze on a courtyard eave.” Graffy de Garcia has found reminders of those halcyon days both tucked into the unlikeliest spaces and splayed out in iconic glory. For example, there is a tile mural that depicts Don Juan Rodríguez Cabrillo’s beach landing of 1542 at restaurant El Torito (29 E. Cabrillo Blvd.); paintings of cowmen and folks in Spanish dress at the Santa Barbara County Courthouse (1100 Anacapa St.); a bas-relief medallion of Saint Barbara over a doorway downtown (14 E. Carrillo St.); a painted detail of a Spanish rider on a rearing horse at Paradise Café (702 Anacapa St.); and a mural portraying the dances of Spain and Mexico at the Arlington Theatre (1317 State St.). Old Spanish Days is our city’s equivalent to Hollywood’s "Star Maps." Pick up a copy and take a delightful tour through the streets of Santa Barbara and back in time. Old Spanish Days: Santa Barbara History Through Public Art is available at Chaucer's Books and the S.B. Historical Museum. — Michelle Drown

Project Fiesta! Building a Complete History of Old Spanish Days, on view at the Santa Barbara Historical Museum (136 E. De la Guerra St.) through September 28, is both a completed exhibition exploring the history of Old Spanish Days and an ongoing research effort that seeks to crowdsource a comprehensive account of our city’s signature public event. Starting from a powerful foundation laid by curators Daniel Calderon, Michael Redmon, and special guest curator Erin Graffy de Garcia, the show will expand the museum’s collection of historical data on Old Spanish Days by soliciting visitor’s Fiesta photographs, memorabilia, and oral histories. The exhibit, which fills the main gallery at the Historical Museum with vintage posters, images, costumes, and even ornate, parade-worthy saddles, also includes a special recording booth where people can go to leave their memories of Fiesta as historical audio. The many fine photographs in the show are the point of departure for one particularly clever element — a set of instructions on how to date your own photographs using clues the way a real historian would.

Old Spanish Days turns 90 this year, and by taking a decade-by-decade look at it, Project Fiesta! reveals all kinds of interesting modifications of style and emphasis. For example, the inaugural event, which took place August 13-16, 1924, featured the opening of the then-brand-new Lobero Theatre with a play called Beggar on Horseback, which was produced and acted by the city’s Community Arts Players. The show was not a pageant about Old Spanish Days but rather a Santa Barbara production of that season’s biggest Broadway hit, an expressionist comedy by George S. Kaufman about a rebellious classical composer who slaughters his rich fiancée and her family, only to wake up and find out he’s been dreaming. It was this anarchic New York comedy, which has nothing at all to do with Spain, Mexico, or California, and in which the “beggar” wears pajamas, that inspired some of the costumes seen in the images of the festive gatherings at the nearby El Paseo in those early years. In the 1930s, we see the indirect influence of the automobile on this celebration of equestrian pageantry in the sponsorship of the annual Fiesta posters by the Seaside Oil Company. Artist Roy Lawhorne lived in town and taught at Santa Barbara College. His magnificent graphic design work could be seen up and down the West Coast in Seaside’s many service stations, and his Fiesta posters made a powerful statement about the romance and glamour of what was, in the 1930s, a rapidly growing phenomenon.

SCRAPBOOK: The SBHM's Project Fiesta! exhibit celebrates Old Spanish Days' 90th year with photos and memorabilia from the past.

Fiesta Through Art

Although World War II and then the great drought of 1948 caused the only cancellations of Fiesta, in the 1950s and 1960s it reemerged, energized by the marimba rhythms of Lencho Martinez and the dance routines of Jose Manero and Paquita del Rey. For those who revel in the history, as well as those who enjoy the revelry, Project Fiesta! is well worth visiting and solicits you to follow and contribute to #projectfiesta, #fiestahistory, and #oldspanishdays.

You Say ‘Hoarder’ Like It’s a Bad Thing

I

t’s the parental fear that no generation before ours has yet grappled with: the terror that our children will grow up to be on a reality show. My particular dread? I’m raising a prime-time “hoarder.” Never one to pass a rock without dropping it in his pocket, my youngest child weeps and wails if I throw out a year-old, splay-bristled, paste-encrusted toothbrush. He has Valentine’s candy from 2011 crammed into keepsake boxes in his tchotchke-stocked bedroom. And last weekend, the boy refused to relinquish a pair of skate shoes whose canvas had torn away from the rubber soles up front, exposing his toes as he walked and flapping open like a chatty cartoon mouth. Even my grandmother, raised on scraps in the Oklahoma dust bowl, would call them “hobo shoes.” Though he left the shoe store with two new pairs, he wouldn’t — couldn’t — throw the old ones in the trash. So I did. “It’s just …” he started, “I have a lot of good memories with those shoes.” Perfect, I reasoned. Then you don’t need the actual shoes. And memories don’t take up room in the closet. It’s a constant battle: His sentimentality versus my efficiency. He has collections and mementos; I have goals and checklists. He loves to reminisce and savor the past while I strive to produce and stay ahead of the clock. I know what you’re thinking. He by Starshine sounds like a much more pleasant person to be around — and he absolutely is. In fact, as the youngest in our family, it may well be his job to dig in his heels email: starshine@roshell.com and slow us all down a bit. But as the Roshells’ trusty rudder, my job is to steer us toward our future and make sure we’re all ready for what’s next — whatever that may be. And it turns out what’s next is a fancy backyard. I decided that after years of being ransacked by hooligans, it was time to convert our yard from a wild play zone (think parched lawn littered with bent hula hoops) into a sophisticated retreat (picture a copper fire pit, charming herb garden, and twinkle-lit pergola). That meant bidding adieu to the gargantuan wooden play structure that my boys had swung on, climbed up, and slid down for a dozen years — but that was now merely collecting cobwebs and blocking out the sun that my future parsley pots would surely require. Naturally, my pack-rat progeny did not take the news well. There were tears. And hugs. And talk of letting go and moving forward. We found a family that was thrilled to dissemble the creaky beast and take it home to their own toddler. On the day they stood in our backyard dismantling the rock wall and picnic table, and unscrewing the custom ship’s helm and trap door that my husband had added, I went busily about my chop-chop checklists: coiling hoses, serving water, sweeping up debris. On a whim (blast it — even my whims are productive!), I snapped a photo of the razed plaything and texted it with a final “thank you” to all the family members who had helped us buy it back when the millennium was still new. And as I hit “Send,” a flood of nostalgia hijacked me. Tears sprang from my eyes and spilled down my face toward my quivering chin. I stumbled over to my son. “It’s just …” I sniffled, “I have a lot of good memories of that play set.” He hugged me as I sobbed, and we both stared in shock at the huge hole in our yard, an emptiness lit by bright sunlight. When we were done gaping, and weeping, I went out to the side yard, plucked my kid’s hobo shoes from the garbage can and tucked them quietly back into his cluttered closet.

by Aly Comingore or design industry insiders, it doesn’t get much bigger than Dwell. Since launching in 2000, the magazine has become a sort of Holy Grail for architects, engineers, and gear nerds, offering exclusive looks at the hottest, weirdest, and most forwardthinking projects on the market. In 2008, the publication even made its way into a brick-and-mortar showcase called Dwell on Design, which now boasts the title of “largest design event in the U.S.” Taking place over three days at the Los Angeles Convention Center, it’s the place where big ideas make even bigger premieres (in 2013 the buzz project was Google Glass) and promising concepts are thrust onto the world stage. This year, one of those little-fish bigsplash stories belonged to Sprouting Sprocket Studio. The fledgling two-fish endeavor of husband and wife Brian and Katrina Manzo sits in a “glorified garage” in Carpinteria, and last month it took home Dwell on Design’s Outdoor Award for a prototype camper the Manzos are calling the Hütte Hut. “We were definitely the smallest [company] in the category and definitely at the lowest price point as far as space,” laughed Katrina when we met up at Municipal Winemakers earlier this month. “We literally couldn’t afford the square footage for our tow vehicle.” While Brian and Katrina may be relatively green in the design convention world, their résumés speak for themselves. Katrina graduated from UCSB with a BA in art studio at the ripe age of 20. Both she and Brian are Art Center alums who specialize

in industrial design. As post-grads, they spent years consulting, trend forecasting, and conceptualizing for plenty of big-name companies and corporations, including Volkswagen (him) and Deckers (her). As for Hütte Hut, it’s a curious little prefab mash-up of Katrina and Brian’s sensibilities — made similar to a wooden boat but designed to be built with a computer-controlled wood-cutting machine. The idea, the couple says, was born of a 2010 trip to Amsterdam following a stay at the citizenM Centraal, a hotel made up of more than 200 shipping containers. “The seed emerged at this intersection of a failing economy, luxury becoming about micro-luxury, and this whole idea of gypsy romanticism in the music scene,” said Katrina.“It’s kind of Gogol Bordello meets quarter-life crisis meets the locavore movement.” Prior to the Dwell win, the pair intended to keep Hütte Hut and Sprouting Sprocket as a slow-growing labor of love. But now, Brian says, that may all be changing: “I think it’s just hitting us after years of consulting, the idea that this is what we do is feasible.” Currently, Hütte Hut is being produced on a made-to-order basis, but with client demand growing by the day, Brian and Katrina are already making moves toward the next step.“We’re scouting locations. We want to keep it local,” said Katrina.“Ideally we would love to have a full-on production line by next summer. … But the vision is still incremental. It’s long-haul.” For more on Hütte Hut and Sprouting Sprocket Studio, visit sproutingsprocket.com.

Memories

Santa Barbaran Steve Morris Honors the Iconic Weight-Lifting Hot Spot with a Garage Full of Memorabilia

A

by John Zant s far as Steve Morris knows, there is no

formal event celebrating the 80th birthday of Muscle Beach, site of a long-running spectacle (1934-1958) that glamorized strong and agile bodies on the beach at Santa Monica. Morris calls it “the birthplace of the physical-fitness boom of the 20th century.” In lieu of a party, Morris welcomed visitors into his garage on the Westside of Santa Barbara, where a weather vane displays the silhouette of a muscleman. Inside, the walls are covered with vintage photographs and other Muscle Beach memorabilia that Morris has amassed. He is especially proud of the 14 magazine covers featuring Steve Reeves. “They are from 1947, when he won the Mr. America competition, and 1949, the year I was born,” Morris said. “My brother got to choose my name, and he named me after Steve Reeves.” Larry Morris, Steve’s oldest brother by 17 years, started visiting Muscle Beach in the ’40s. He would hitchhike almost 25 miles from the family home in Burbank. Larry had put together his own gym in the garage. “He got kicked off the Burroughs High football team when the coach found out he was lifting weights,” Steve said. There was a belief that big muscles would be a hindrance in most sports, a myth that has been dispelled by everybody from Bo Jackson to LeBron James. Steve followed in the path of his second-oldest brother, Ron Morris, and took up pole vaulting. Ron won the state high school championship at Burroughs and was the silver medalist in the pole vault at the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome. Steve never quite achieved those heights in his youth, but he has never retired from the sport. Santa Barbara, where he started Steve Morris Defensive Driving School almost 40 years ago, is an ideal place to practice.

Morris won the ages 60-64 pole vault at the 2011 World Masters Athletics Championships in Sacramento. Early this year, about to turn 65, he cleared 11 feet at a meet in Las Vegas. It was out of compassion for Larry that Steve launched his Muscle Beach binge. “Larry lived alone in Glendale after the passing of both his wife and daughter,” Steve said. “To lift his spirits, I would quiz him over the phone about the old Muscle Beach and my namesake, Steve Reeves. The stories that he told about the days he and his buddy, Vincent, would hang out there in the ’40s and ’50s fascinated me. Being a collector at heart — I used to collect pennies, soda-pop bottles, and Reyn Spooner Hawaiian shirts as a kid — I started collecting Muscle Beach memorabilia 10 years ago.” Larry Morris, 82, has since moved to Carpinteria. The displays in his brother’s garage gym send him back six or seven decades. “It was mostly acrobatics and gymnastics,” he said of the scene at Muscle Beach. Larry’s memory is borne out by the old photos, depicting human pyramids and bodies somersaulting through the air. He pointed out “Moe” Most, who held up the bottom of many pyramids and was known for doing 50 one-handed giant swings on a high bar. Several women, notably “Pudgy” Stockton and Relna Brewer, participated in the feats of strength. The focal point of the activity was a platform installed by the Works Progress Administration on the beach south of the Santa Monica Pier. Weight-lifting equipment attracted such bodybuilding pioneers as Vic Tanny, Jack LaLanne, and Joe Gold. Then there was Steve Reeves, as described by author Harold Zinkin (Remembering Muscle Beach: Where Hard Bodies Began): “His was the most perfect body on Muscle Beach or any beach. During the fifties no one in Hollywood personified fitness and the ideal physique more than he did.” Larry remembers Reeves as a nice guy. “I talked to him lots of times,” he said. Steve Morris never met his namesake, who

MUSCLE BOUND: “It was mostly acrobatics and gymnastics,” said Larry Morris (pictured, right) of the antics at Santa Monica’s famous Muscle Beach. Larry was a regular in the ’40s, hitchhiking almost 25 miles from the family home in Burbank to hang around weight lifters such as the legendary Steve Reeves. Muscle Beach closed in 1958 after a 24-year run, but Larry and his younger brother Steve (left) keep the memories alive thanks to a garage full of memorabilia that Steve has amassed.

died in 2000, but he can see him in old movies. Reeves had the starring role in Hercules (1957), the first film featuring the mythological hero. Santa Monica dismantled the Muscle Beach facility after the summer of 1958. “People were complaining about the tremendous crowds,” Larry said. “The city wouldn’t support it any longer.” There is now a latter-day rendition of Muscle Beach in Venice, but Larry would rather spend his days with memories of the original, a 25-year phenomenon (before steroids, by the way) that promoted physical fitness as a good cause.

WORLDLY GAUCHOS: It was a grand weekend for former UCSB athletes in international competition. Todd Rogers teamed up with another Gaucho grad, Theo Brunner, to place third in the ASICS World Series of Beach Volleyball tournament in Long Beach. It was the first podium finish for the 40-year-old Rogers since 2012, his last go-around with Phil Dalhausser (they were the 2008 Olympic champions). Sean Rosenthal is now winning events with Dalhausser, but Rogers has not faded away. He and Brunner had to fight their way through the qualifying rounds and were seeded No. 25 in the main draw, but they made it to the bronzemedal match, where they outlasted Germany’s Alexander Walkenhorst and Stefan Windscheif, 21-17, 18-21, 15-12. Third place was worth a sweet $40,000 out of a record $1 million purse…. Barbara Nwaba, another UCSB alum now representing the Santa Barbara Track Club, was a runaway winner of the heptathlon at the Thorpe Cup multi-event competition between U.S. and German athletes at Marburg, Germany. Nwaba, boosted by clearing 6¼ in the high jump, finished with her second-best point total ever (6,205). ON TO WICHITA: After taking their last two league

games from the Conejo Oaks, 5-3 and 2-1, the Santa Barbara Foresters will enter the 80th National Baseball Con-

gress World Series with a record of 36-10-1. NBC games will be going virtually around-the-clock at the Lawrence-Dumont Stadium in Wichita, Kansas, starting Friday afternoon…. The Santa Barbara Soccer Club has won a U.S. Youth Soccer National Championship for the third consecutive year, this time by the U-18 team. It blanked Lehigh Valley United (Pa.) 3-0 in the final at Germantown, Maryland. For more sports, including a weekly highlight schedule, see independent.com/sports. July 31, 2014

¡VIVA LA MÚSICA! YOUTH BANDS ARE BRINGING THE ROCK TO FIESTA

WHITE FENCE FOR THE RECENTLY FOUND INNOCENT For the Recently Found Innocent is Tim Presley’s fifth studio album as White Fence, as well as his second collaborative effort with fellow psych-pop auteur Ty Segall. But, and perhaps most importantly, it’s Presley’s first foray outside his bedroom-recording setup. Exchanging his home studio for Segall’s garage, and his four-track for Segall’s eight, the album feels downright expansive by comparison. White Fence is a project that has always worn its inspirations on

omewhere in between the rodeos, parades, and cascarones, Santa Barbara’s youngsters decided they wanted in on the Old Spanish Days action. And who can blame them? With all that citywide revelry going on, what teen wouldn’t want to dive in? Back in the ’70s, that youthful pièce de résistance took the form of street dances — essentially large groups of kids who would gather on Stearns Wharf, plug their instruments in, and play to their peers. In the ’80s, former El Presidente Roger Perry recalled, these parties moved to West Carrillo Street, just outside the Greyhound bus station. “They’d close that whole block off from State Street to Chapala,” he said. “It was kind of the magnet for 14- to 18-year-olds.” As all good, loud, youthful party stories go, the authorities eventually came in and shut the music down — though, Perry points out, not because of any legal issues. “It was just a man-power thing. There weren’t enough people to police it.” Lucky for us, though, Perry’s not a man to easily forget, so when he joined the Fiesta board back in 1991, he came in with goals in mind. “I wanted to change the face of MacKenzie Park,” he said,“and I deliberately wanted to revisit the street dances because it was such a meaningful element of Fiesta when I was growing up here. It was part of what I talked about when I was presidente, but it was also one of the key elements of the festival for me as a 16- and 17-year-old.” And for the past three years, Perry has done just that. In step with his year-round championing for young area music acts (e.g., his Santa Barbara Youth Battle of the Bands and summertime Skater’s Park Music Series), Perry began to build up MacKenzie’s

Mercado del Norte as not only a locals’ spot but also as a great place to catch tunes. This year, he’s programming four days’ worth of music there and 60 sets of music by kids coming from as far south as San Diego and as far north as San Luis Obispo. On Wednesday night, nine S.B. bands man the stage for Locals’ Night. Come Thursday, Santa Barbara Sings offers up an all-female singer/songwriters revue atop the Main Stage. And on Friday and Saturday, Perry is playing host to a wealth of young talents from up and down the coast, including -ers Stolen Thunder, False Puppet, Bad Jack, and 2014 S.B. Youth Battle of the Band winners Galvanized Souls. In other words, if you’re looking for somewhere to rock out, Perry’s got ya covered. its sleeve, and here they’re paid solid homage. “Sandra (When the Earth Dies)” calls to mind the eerily druggy folk of Syd Barrett, while the wobbly sway of “Hard Water” seems to take its cues from The Byrds. But Presley’s shtick has never been strict imitation. Instead, his music reads like a jangly sort of cocktail — a potent, heady concoction whose ingredients taste like everything and nothing all at once. There’s a woozy, almost underwater quality to songs like “Actor” and “Fear,” but elsewhere tracks burst to life, a nod to White Fence’s famously explosive live shows (“Arrow Man,” “The Light”). Lyrically speaking, Innocent could easily be Presley’s strongest to date. Dark themes run deep, unifying his surrealist yarns about

“Santa Barbara really is doing a fabulous job of fostering and helping young, budding musicians,” he says.“Through our festivals, we’re giving these kids the opportunity to play to a meaningful audience on a professionally set stage, and they’re not paying to do any of it.” I’ll raise a “viva!” to that.

jealousy, gluttony, greed, and anxiety just enough to keep the whole thing flowing. And flow it does. In the span of its 40 minutes, Innocent ambles along with intention; nary a track feels like filler. Turns out White Fence can rip outside of the bedroom, too. — AC

Jazzz trumpeter tru rump mpet mp eter et er Nate Nat atee Birkey Birkey Birk key returns ret etur urns ns to to the the   this thiis th is week week in honor of his latest recorded offering. Birkey honorofhislatestrecordedoffering BirkeyfirstcalledSanta first called Santa Barbara his home when he began his undergraduate studies at UCSB in 1988. After graduation, though, he made the move to New York City to further his musical pursuits and opportunities. Birkey’s new album, titled Just A Closer Walk, features a tasty fusion of gospel tunes and jazz. At first listen, one may mistake the collection for a standard jazz album. But rather, Birkey takes traditional gospel songs and jazzes them up, priming them for intricate instrumental improvisation. When asked about what song stands out most to him among the lot, Birkey states that is difficult to choose because most of the repertoire has deep personal meaning. It turns out Birkey grew up in a religious family singing hymns at his church, and he chose the favorite hymns of various family members as a dedication to them and to thank them for their support of his musical pursuits. The connection between spirituality and music has remained a constant throughout his life, he explains. Although Birkey says there’s no specific message in mind with the album, he does concede that there’s a definite spiritual vibe to the music. “Music is very spiritual for me. Music is a universal thing that touches souls,” he says. Jazz often offers a unique creative expression of a player’s character, a sound that gives us a sense of who they are as a person. Listening to Just A Closer Walk illustrates both Birkey’s musical maturity and his deeply engrained artistic sensibilities. The St. Michael & All Angels Church in Isla Vista was the venue of choice when it came time to record the album. Birkey says that he was aiming for a more organic sound, which he attained by placing a single microphone in the middle of the room to capture the “holistic quality” of the band. The use of a single microphone does not allow for overdubs, so what was captured was spontaneous and improvisational, showcasing each musician’s abilities. These abilities will be showcased throughout this weekend, too, as Birkey plays the Beer Garden at De la Guerra Plaza on Thursday, July 31, with Spencer the Gardner. He and Spencer also team up at the Fiesta Main Stage in De la Guerra Plaza on Saturday, August 2, at 9 p.m. For show info and more about the album, visit natebirkey.com. —Mitch Grimes

n these powerful black-andwhite nature photographs, Joseph Donovan employs techniques derived from landscape painting to enhance the viewer’s feeling of looking into, rather than merely at, the spaces he documents. In the process, he adds a further dimension of time and yearning to the crystal-clear deep focus that has become his trademark. With highly evocative titles such as “Tell Me No Lies,” “Together,” and “On the Hill, a Palace,” Donovan seeks to unlock a train of association in the viewer’s mind and to lead him or her further into the visionary worlds these images reveal. For example, in “Together,” a gnarled tree stands guard over an outcropping of rock. The hills in the background, sheathed in a milky white layer of mist, provide ideal contrast for the heightened presence of the intensely variegated surfaces of leaf, bark, lichen, and rock. What a fascinating couple these two make — of course, they are “Together.” After collecting his images in such locations as rural Northern California, Donovan sequesters himself in his studio in Sunfish Lake, Minnesota. There, with only pine trees, wild birds, and the occasional deer for company, he performs the Photoshop alchemy that takes these images across the threshold of ordinary accuracy and into the higher dimension of assisted visual interest. It’s a painstaking process. As Donovan puts it,“I want the final print to feel the force of what I saw, which means that every detail matters.” Looking at the incredibly vivid and intricate surfaces presented by such gorgeous large-format prints as the rain-soaked “Valley Elders,” it’s easy to get lost in dreamlike contemplation. Close attention to virtually every square inch turns up some extra nuance to see and feel. Donovan, who has trained with some of America’s most prominent master photographers, spent much of his early career in commercial photography documenting golf courses and real estate developments. After the death of his beloved wife, he drifted for a time, lost in grief and unable to maintain his enthusiasm for the conventional routine of photographic illustration. A chance encounter with the writings of Celtic philosopher and environmental mystic John O’Donohue spun him off in a new direction and gave him the sense of personal mission that drives his current work. This show at wall space is Donovan’s first solo exhibition since discovering a new creative vein, and the results are very encouraging. His combination of reportorial directness and fanatic, superintense digital optimization does not seem forced in the least. On the contrary, these pictures sing with the easy familiarity and grace of a practiced country choir. Whether it’s the exposed root system of a giant, cliff-hanging tree, as in “On the Hill, A Palace,” or the glowing surface of an open path glimpsed from within shade in “Tell Me No Lies,” each of these images etches a tangible sensa■ tion of nature’s mystery and beauty on the mind’s eye.

F

or the intrepid art lover on the lookout for something different or unusual in the area art scene, you generally have to be adventurous and get off the beaten path. Emerging artists who have yet to land their first big gallery show have to be creative when looking for walls to hang their work.

The artist Artist Michael also has a number of drawings and mixed-media pieces at Matheson has fully The French Press’s State Street location. absorbed this lesson and has taken over two of these spaces simultaneously, with shows up at The French Press on State Street and Municipal Winemakers in the Funk Zone. Matheson’s work is a testament to the value of these alternative spaces in the Santa Barbara art ecosystem. As with so many ambitious area artists, Matheson’s art education began at S.B. City College, where he discovered an intense interest in printmaking and spent his time developing experience in a variety of printmaking techniques. From there, Matheson moved on to Art Center in Pasadena, where instructors like the Clayton Brothers, Esther Pearl Watson, and Jason Holley encouraged his interest in folk art, Americana, outsider art, and other American iconography. In The French Press, Matheson has a collection of watercolors that take their aesthetic inspiration from traditional tattoo flash art. These works are primarily black-and-white with small pops of color, depicting an eclectic mix of botanicals, gemstones, animals, and other ephemera that bring to mind the big-top carnivals of the 1930s but with a contemporary twist. On the opposing wall, there are a couple of mixed-media works where Matheson shows off his considerable draftsmanship skills. In each, a meticulously rendered pencil drawing (one a horse’s head, the other an antler) is centered over the top of a stencil from a doily and surrounded by much more roughly drawn compass roses. The juxtaposition of drawing styles here helps to emphasize the artist’s interest in both history and handmade craft that is at the heart of this work. In its entirety, this show represents one of the finest examples of the lowbrow art movement that Santa Barbara has seen in quite some time. The second helping of Matheson’s work at Municipal Winemakers is a remarkable series of still-life woodblock prints. Here again the artist has brought together his unique mix of traditional craft and specific historical references in a fresh, contemporary package. Most of these pieces feature an ornate, double-handled central vase filled with the same thorned botanicals that can be found in work at The French Press. The intricacy of the geometric designs on these vases is astonishing and masterful. These pieces are installed in the small conference space in the interior of the tasting room, with one very notable exception. In the main room hangs a five-foot-tall print on cloth; the vase here is stuffed with enough flowers to make the great Dutch still-life painters of the 17th century proud. If you needed an excuse to have a glass of wine at Muni, this piece alone is worth the trip. Both shows will be up through the end of August, and Matheson says he will be curating shows at The French Press for the foreseeable future, so expect ■ interesting things to be found there in the months to come.

Then he and the young musicians plunged in to the Chamber Symphony No.  in E-flat Major, Op. , which remains one of the 20th century’s wildest musical rides. Gilbert’s decision to augment the original arrangement, which was scored for 15 individual instruments, with additional strings — he referred to it as a “bulked up” version — might be the subject of some well-informed second guesses, but there was no confusion when it came to the sound he got from these players, which was outstanding. Next up was another exciting 20th-century chamber symphony, this one by Thomas Adès. This 1990 composition is an altogether idiosyncratic work, playful to the point of perversity, and filled with both jazzy, unpredictable rhythms and odd, unconventional instruments, including an accordion, the inimitable “boing” of a Flexitone, and the improvised wind instrument created when one blows across the top of a wine bottle. Gilbert joked that the note hit by this notempty bottle could be heard to fluctuate during rehearsal, a nod to our city’s special relationship with wine that was clearly part of his excellent rapport with the Academy fellows. Thomas Adès, who will appear at the Music Academy as conductor for the Festival Orchestra’s season finale, has the compositional panache and sophistication to make something of this eccentric work, and the audience left for intermission buzzing with the youthful energy represented by both the players onstage and the composers, who wrote these works early on in their careers. Upon their return, the composer age factor dipped even lower, as what was now a full orchestra took on the Symphony No.  in B-flat Major, D.  of Franz Schubert, written when Schubert was just 17. Although this choice came with an audible diminution in the complexity of the composition, Gilbert and company more than made up for the shift with a beautiful, singing tone and propulsive rhythmic inflections. Seeing Gilbert conduct from up close and in this relatively unbuttoned atmosphere was truly a revelation. Every gesture was solid with the precision and confidence of a master at the height of his powers. His highly physical lunging and pirouetting style also brought out the best in the Academy fellows, who played this music as though their young lives depended on it. As a preview of what is to come not only in this season but also over the next four years as the Music Academy and the New York Philharmonic grow into their new collaboration, the concert was a remarkable harbinger of much ■ more greatness to come.

a&e | THEATER PREVIEW

BREAKING BARRIERS E

COURTESY

by Charles Donelan

hottest places on the planet to develop a new play. This season promises to be one of the OPC’s strongest ever, and in preparation for it, I spoke with three of the eight playwright participants: Sandra Tsing Loh, Bill Cain, and Alice Tuan. Through this exciting sequence of interviews, I was able to get a feeling not only for what these three writers are currently working on but also for what they love about the annual trek to Ojai. JENNY GRAHAM

COURTESY

very year it gets harder to summarize the Ojai Playwrights Conference (OPC) — and that’s a good thing. With Disney songsmiths, NPR radio personalities, and edgy theatrical innovators now invited to rub writing elbows with the American theater elite, it’s impossible to know just what will happen. Under Robert Egan’s leadership, this annual retreat and intimate festival of readings has become one of the

OJAI PLAYWRIGHTS CONFERENCE EXPANDS THE RANGE OF THEATER

DRIVING MS. CRAZY: The author of The Madwoman in the Volvo is developing a solo performance.

SANDRA TSING LOH

Sandra Tsing Loh, the celebrated author of, most recently, The Madwoman in the Volvo, is one of America’s foremost social commentators and humorists. She first came to widespread attention through her role as a radio personality, but she has gone on to achieve a sterling reputation as a solo performer and a certain notoriety for her freewheeling approach to the busy intersection between her personal and her professional life. Tsing Loh gives great phone interviews; this woman will make you think, she will make you laugh, and then she will make you think about what you just laughed at. You are working on a stage piece after taking six years off from performing. How does that feel, and what do you expect from the conference? It’s extraordinarily useful to work with people who understand the trajectory of a story and what it needs to fulfill the longer form of a full show. It has to happen in the writing because who wants to come out to see some middle-aged person alone onstage? Theater must be different to be compelling. There’s too much competition from things like the explosion of excellent television in the last few years. With meth-lab TV shows available on demand at home, why are people going to get their car keys and drive to the theater? It has to be special. As far as returning to the stage is concerned, I want to tell you about an experience I had at Campbell Hall in Santa Barbara, because what happened to me that night is one of the reasons I’m pursuing this. I was on a book tour for The Madwoman in the Volvo, and my flight to Santa Barbara was delayed, so I arrived at UCSB very shortly before I was set to go on. Up until that point, the tour had been mostly signings, short readings, and interviews, but when I got to Campbell Hall, they explained to me that the audience had paid $15, and that they were expecting me to talk for an hour! I almost panicked. I did not want to read for an hour, and I was even more reluctant to commit to an hour’s worth of questions, so I just walked out there and started to talk, off book, about menopause. And it was electric. The room lit up with energy. Women were so ready to listen and think about this subject it even took me by surprise, and I had written about it. The majority of American women will soon be 45 and over, and it seems as if virtually everything we have been told about this aspect of our lives is wrong. That night in Campbell Hall was one of the places where the idea of this performance got started because it felt so good to talk with the audience there.

RAD RESIDENT: Alice Tuan will provide provocative feedback as the OPC writer in residence.

CAIN AND ABE: Hasty Pudding is Bill Cain’s new play about President Lincoln and his son Robert Todd.

BILL CAIN

Bill Cain represents the current American theater scene at the highest level of creativity and ambition. He is a regular at the OPC, and two of the five plays that he developed there, Equivocation and  Circles, went on to win the prestigious American Theatre Critics Association Steinberg New Play Award. The play he has in development for 2014, Hasty Pudding, has the potential to be his best work yet. You obviously like coming back to Ojai for this conference. What’s so special about it? The magic of the Ojai Playwrights Conference lies in its structure. For the first week, before the actors arrive, it is just the writers, and that’s when the community is created. Tell me about Hasty Pudding. What happens between Abraham Lincoln and his son Robert Todd? On the day he was assassinated, Abraham Lincoln spent two hours alone talking with his son Bob. He asked him to go to the theater, but Bob was tired and turned his father down. I believe that something happened between the father and son that day that has had a profound impact on American history. Robert Todd Lincoln became a robber baron and a key figure in the coming Gilded Age. This play is about how we as a nation became so separated between rich and poor. It’s a story that has to do with the impact of the railroad — Robert Todd was secretary of war at one point, but later on he became first general counsel and then president of the Pullman Palace Car Company. When Eugene V. Debs led the Pullman Strike in 1894, it shut down the country’s railroads, and it was Robert Todd Lincoln who got the federal government to come to the rescue of management, using violence to suppress the strike and break the union. I’m interested in telling this story about the history of a great divide in our nation through the conversation that took place on that day between father and son.

ALICE TUAN In a field crowded with qualified entrants, Alice Tuan enjoys the distinction of having written what many consider to be the most scandalous piece of new American theater. Ajax (por nobody), the play that Tuan wrote based on Sophocles, has thus far received staged readings because, as one reviewer put it, “Ajax features so many acts of sodomy — involving so many implements and so much bloodshed — that it is in fact legally, ethically, and (one hopes) physically impossible to perform as written.” Although Ajax (por nobody) remains Tuan’s best-known work, that won’t last, as this prolific and energetic writer has many other fascinating projects under way, including an updated version of Noël Coward’s Private Lives called Private Rivals. Tuan has a particular interest in the complex and rapidly evolving constellation of cultures along the Pacific Rim and will be the official writer in residence of this year’s conference. What got you started writing plays? I think for a long time I was a playwright without knowing it. When my Chinese grandfather, who had been a general in Chiang Kai-shek’s army, moved in with us in the San Fernando Valley, I was still a little girl, but I could tell that there was something odd about this Chinese general baking in the California sun. One memory I have of him in particular was when he couldn’t get the microwave to work. He was trying to heat up his cup of tea, and he was pushing the buttons, and these beeps were coming out, but it wasn’t working, and I helped him. This little tableau, and our nonsense dialogue, became my first script. It was a journal entry then, but looking back, I feel like it was the beginning for me of writing plays. What do you like about coming to the Ojai Playwrights Conference? Art flourishes in generosity, and that’s what I feel here. I love it, and I always get writing done.

hat could possibly renew the sense of excitement around a one-person show? We have seemingly seen and heard it all at this point — surely every embarrassing personal detail and excruciating family revelation has been staged by now. Likewise, all the riffs, attitudes, and stances have been mined for everything they’re worth.Yet somehow writer Will Eno has managed to uncover a new vein of interest in this most basic and ancient of theatrical forms. In Title and Deed, a new comic monologue that was written for Conor Lovett, the actor who performed it last Thursday at the Rubicon Theatre, Eno crafts a persona that’s both likable and mysterious, equally charming and strange. As a result, the play leaves its viewers with the feeling of having heard not just a single character but the voice of a whole new way of thinking about the theater. The piece begins simply, with Lovett, known simply as a man with no specific name, coming onstage carrying a small backpack. His opening lines set the tone, which is one of bemused sincerity. “I’m not from here,” he announces. “I guess I never will be. That’s how being from somewhere works.” The piece never completely settles the question of where he is from, and, although the man spends a substantial amount of time describing his homeland, it never resolves into any place that one could recognize. The conventional gestures toward describing a country, and a way of life, are made, but there’s something off about what gets put forward. For example, here’s one description he gives of his home — notice how quickly it gets away from him. “It’s just a little thing, my country — down by the sea, roughly, seasonal enough, a small population, the chief exports sarcasm and uric acid. No, but I’m proud of her, the old girl, the very old woman. The lying, dying senile old mess, so far away, her milky eyes trying to focus on anything and her mouth opening and closing for some reason other than to speak.” And so it goes throughout this mesmerizing hour of theater. Familiar rhetorical strategies like the personification of a country, one’s homeland, collapse under their own weight, or swing open like trap doors, dropping the imagination into an eerie free fall. Lovett’s performance is absolutely top-notch and full of disarming gestures that ingratiate this admittedly odd individual, even as he persists in deconstructing the repertoire of signs by which he might be known. Yet despite this habit of verbally dismantling his own claims, the man nevertheless does deliver several memorable descriptions. His account of his own birth has an existential piquancy, and his story of the time he spent living with a family that may or may not have been the Millers gets one of the night’s biggest laughs. “The arrangement was that I’d help out around the house,” he explains, “but I didn’t, so they asked me to leave, and I left. Good-bye to the Millers.” If that doesn’t sound particularly funny, so be it. As with much of this show, the humor is in the delivery, the rapid reversals of expectation, and the sudden compressions of narrative that leave the audience off balance and breathless, waiting for the man to start up again. Rubicon has a long-standing relationship with Lovett and the director of the piece, his wife, Judy Hegarty Lovett.We should be grateful that this magnificent team, now associated not only with the extraordinary legacy of Samuel Beckett but also with the great promise of Eno, continues to frequent our area to present such challenging and exciting work. ■

MAN ON FIRE S

trange as it may seem, Owen Pallett just might be the best person to endorse this Monday’s Arcade Fire show at the Santa Barbara Bowl. As a longtime friend, arranger, and touring member of the band, he carries an obvious by Aly Comingore bias, but looking at the lengths he’s gone to see this year’s Reflektor tour through to its finish, Pallett’s partiality seems almost beside the point. “I’m not ashamed to say that it was pretty stressful having the record come out while I’m out doing Arcade Fire shows,” said Pallett from his home in Toronto last week. Mere minutes into our talk, the 34-year-old singer/songwriter lets out a giggle. “I am candid to a fault during interviews, as you’re about to learn.” The record Pallett speaks of, by the way, is In Conflict, which he released through Domino Records this past May amid a whirlwind run with his Grammy Award–winning side project. The long-awaited follow-up to 2010’s Heartland is, like much of Pallett’s work, a vibrant and carefully layered concoction filled with swelling violin loops, propulsive synthesizers, and lyrics that longingly, insistently beg for a close reading. Yet compared to the vaguely conceptual Heartland, which followed a loose narrative about a violent young farmer character named Lewis, Conflict feels like some sort of diary excerpt. The album’s lyric sheet brims with shrouded tales of alienation, lust, and the looming notion of fatherhood. “I’ll never have any children,” Pallett sings on the album’s opening track, a nod to his longtime relationship with partner (and manager), Patrick Borjal. Later, over a tense bed of strings, he offers up the line, “I’m not at all afraid of changing, but I don’t know what good it would do me.”

On a professional level, though, Pallett seems to thrive off change. In addition to his solo career and his gig with Arcade Fire, he appears to have five plates spinning at any given time. In the past two years, he’s written arrangements for a roster of acts that includes everyone from The National to Taylor Swift and Linkin Park. His music for Spike Jonze’s Her, which he cowrote with Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler, went on to become the 2014 Academy Awards’ dark-horse nominee for Best Score. This year alone, Pallett penned a ballet (his first) for the National Ballet of Canada and became the Internet’s go-to music scholar, dissecting the arrangements behind Beyoncé, Lady Gaga, and Katy Perry in a series of columns for Slate and, more recently, The Guardian. Still, the bulk of Pallett’s “big year” has stemmed from In Conflict, which despite its lack of live-show promotion has garnered a veritable flood of positive attention. Written and recorded over a stretch of “downtime” in 2013, the album is Pallett’s fourth studio recording but his first with a live band. Longtime friends bassist Matt Smith and drummer Robbie Gordon do a subtle but noteworthy number on Pallett’s swirling sonic landscapes. By recording much of the album live, the trio manages a mighty hat trick, conjuring a sound that’s both knotty and visceral. More often than not, the record’s nuanced arrangements feel like they’re spinning just slightly off axis, the instruments bounding to catch up with one another. Take mid-album highlight “Chorale,” which builds on a curious mix of skulking dub bass and sizzling percussion that waxes and then wanes around a regal-sounding horn section. Or “Soldiers Rock,” which finds Pallett’s

finger-plucked violin pinging off a Kraftwerkesque synth line. “As with all my records, I wanted this one to have that retro-future feel, where it’s both looking forward and looking backward,” Pallett explained, citing The Creatures’ Feast as a major jumping-off point. “We wanted to capture the vibe of ‘Sky Train,’ that propulsive sort of noisebased quality, that locomotive chk-a chk-a chk-a thing,” he laughed. “That’s what gets me off, basically. “I know it’s so so so cool to have musicians who just seem like they don’t give a fuck and

their music comes so effortlessly, but I’m not going to lie to anybody. We labor over it. We think about every decision.” It stands to mention that the album’s meticulously wrought retro-future feel was helped along by the legendary retro-futurist himself, Brian Eno, who contributes synths, guitars, and backing vocals to a number of In Conflict’s tracks. “I was aware that I was on his radar back in 2010,” said Pallett, who describes Eno as “basically the closest thing I have to a deity.” Eventually the pair connected during a festival in Norway where Pallett recalls playing a “particularly good” set. Eno sat side stage and came to him afterward to offer up his praise, which ultimately sealed the bond. “The night after we played that show and he said those things, I was on the verge of just wanting to freak out,” he laughed. “We were all at this after-party, and as soon as Brian left, I ended up just totally raging. I got into a fight. I think a lot of that had to do with built-up feelings about being around somebody you respect and admire so much.” It’s with a similar air of barely restrained admiration that Pallett talks about Arcade Fire, which (lucky for us) he’ll serve as the opening act for when the band headlines the Bowl next week.“I’m kind of like the bridesmaid — it’s like, ‘Well, Owen’s already there. Let’s get him to do it,’ ” he laughs, quick to self-deprecate. But Pallett’s praise for his comrades comes without a trace of sarcasm. “The show is indisputably fantastic, and I’m so proud of them for putting it together,” he said. “It’s just a really immersive concert experience, and it’s so fucking strong in terms of the performances and the material. And I’m barely even a part of it, but it is such an honor to be a part of.” Bias or no, we can’t help but believe him. Then again, we’ve been calling this one the show of the season for months. ■

Hercules (99 mins.; PG-13: epic battle sequences, violence, suggestive comments, brief strong language, partial nudity) Near the end of the credits is a disclaimer that claims that “Hercules” is a trademark of the film company that made this movie. I think pagans living and dead might dispute that issue. It is curious that this perennial filmic hero isn’t named Herakles, though, since this film takes place in Greece, and Hercules is the Roman-ization of the demigod’s name. Never mind that the whole thrust of this otherwise excellent, goofy, sand-andsandal epic is dedicated to the systematic debunking of the Hercules (trademark) myth. Though the film opens with a montage of Herk (Dwayne Johnson) completing some of his more glamorous famous labors (stinky Augean stables not included), we immediately meet a narrator who says none of this was true and that that this band of Hercules-led warriors are actually just mercenaries who depend on the legends to give them certain cachet with bad tyrants and such. At this point, the film seems stupid. Why ditch the famed magic and leave us a lot of army training scenes? In a rare example of great Hollywood writing, the second half becomes a kind of unexpected triumph as all of the mortal limitations are shed by mighty acts of heroic will. The film, based on a graphic novel, gives you plenty of opportunity to see beefcake splendor, awesome ancient battles, and The Rock with a lion’s skin hat pushing away at a temple wall with all that trademarked gnarliness.

Planes: Fire & Rescue (83 mins.; PG: action and some peril)

A married couple (Jason Segel, Cameron Diaz) scrambles to uncover their sex tape after it goes missing.

CAPRICORN

(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): If a farmer plants the same crop in the same field year after year, the earth’s nutrients get exhausted. For instance, lettuce sucks up a lot of nitrogen. It’s better to plant beans or peas in that location the next season, since they add nitrogen back into the soil. Meanwhile, lettuce will do well in the field where the beans or peas grew last time. This strategy is called crop rotation. I nominate it as your operative metaphor for the next 10 months, Aries. Your creative output will be abundant if you keep sowing each new “crop” in a fertile situation where it is most likely to thrive.

(June 21 - July 22): Was there an actual poet named Homer who wrote the ancient Greek epics The Iliad and The Odyssey? Or was “Homer” a fictitious name given to several authors who created those two master works? Whatever the case may be, we know that Homer plagiarized himself. The opening line of Book XI in The Iliad is identical to the opening line of Book V in The Odyssey: “Now Dawn arose from her couch beside the lordly Tithonos, to bear light to the immortals and to mortal men.” So should we be critical of Homer? Nah. Nor will I hold it against you if, in the coming days, you imitate some fine action or brilliant move you did in the past. It was great the first time. I’m sure it will be nearly as great this time, but in a different way.

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): It’s fine if you want to turn the volume all the way up on your charisma and socialize like a party animal. I won’t protest if you gleefully blend business and pleasure as you nurture your web of human connections. But I hope you will also find time to commune with the earth and sky and rivers and winds. Why? You are scheduled to take a big, fun spiritual test in the not-too-distant future. An excellent way to prepare for this rite of passage will be to deepen your relationship with Mother Nature.

(Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): The heavenly body known as 1986 DA is a near-Earth asteroid that’s 1.4 miles in diameter. It’s packed with 10,000 tons of gold and 100,000 tons of platinum, meaning it’s worth over five trillion dollars. Can we humans get to it and mine its riches? Not yet. That project is beyond our current technology. But one day, I’m sure we will find a way. I’m thinking there’s a smaller-scale version of this scenario in your life, Capricorn. You know about or will soon find out about a source of wealth that’s beyond your grasp. But I’m betting that in the next 10 months you will figure out a way to tap into it and begin the process.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): Maybe your grandparents are dead, or maybe they’re still alive. Whatever the case may be, do you have a meaningful or interesting connection with them? Is there anything about their souls or destinies that inspires you as you face your own challenges? Or is your link with them based more on sentimentality and nostalgia? In the near future, I urge you to dig deeper in search of the power they might have to offer you. Proceed on the hypothesis that you have not yet deciphered some of the useful messages you can derive from how they lived their lives. Explore the possibility that their mysteries are relevant to yours.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): The prolific American author James Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) wrote 32 novels. In those pages, he crammed in almost 1,100 quotations from Shakespeare. What motivated such extreme homage? I suspect he regarded Shakespeare as a mentor and wanted to blend the Bard’s intelligence with his own. I invite you to do something similar, Gemini. What heroes have moved you the most? What teachers have stirred you the deepest? It’s a perfect time to pay tribute in a way that feels self-empowering. I suspect you will benefit from revivifying their influence on you. Homework: Finish this sentence: “The one thing that really keeps me from being myself is _______.” Testify at Truthrooster@gmail.com.

LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): The Earth has been around for almost 4.6 billion years. But according to scientists who study the fossil records, fire didn’t make its first appearance on our planet until 470 million years ago. Only then were there enough land-based plants and oxygen to allow the possibility of fires arising naturally. Do the math and you will see that for 90 percent of the Earth’s history, fire was absent. In evolutionary terms, it’s a newcomer. As I study your astrological omens for the next 10 months, I foresee the arrival of an almost equally monumental addition to your life, Leo. You can’t imagine what it is yet, but by this time next year, you won’t fathom how you could have lived without it for so long.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): In the nights to come, I expect you will dream of creatures like fiery monsters, robot warriors, extraterrestrial ghosts, and zombie vampires. But here’s the weird twist: They will be your helpers and friends. They will protect you and fight on your behalf as you defeat your real enemies, who are smiling pretenders wearing white hats. Dreams like this will prepare you well for events in your waking life, where you will get the chance to gain an advantage over fake nice guys who have hurt you or thwarted you.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): You are hereby excused from doing household chores and busywork, Scorpio. Feel free to cancel boring appointments. Avoid tasks that are not sufficiently epic, majestic, and fantastic to engage your heroic imagination. As I see it, this is your time to think really big. You have cosmic authorization to give your full intensity to exploring the amazing maze where the treasure is hidden. I urge you to pay attention to your dreams for clues. I encourage you to ignore all fears except the one that evokes your most brilliant courage. Abandon all trivial worries, you curious warrior, as you go in quest of your equivalent of the Holy Grail.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): “I just sort of drifted into it.” According to author Gore Vidal, “That’s almost always the explanation for everything.” But I hope this won’t be true for you anytime soon, Aquarius. You can’t afford to be unconscious or lazy or careless about what you’re getting yourself into. You must formulate a clear, strong intention, and stick to it. I don’t mean that you should be overly cautious or ultra-skeptical. To make the correct decisions, all you have to do is be wide awake and stay in intimate touch with what’s best for you.

SAGITTARIUS

PISCES

(Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): Broadway is one of New York City’s main streets. It runs the length of the island of Manhattan. But hundreds of years ago it was known by the indigenous Lenape people as the Wickquasgeck Trail. It was a passageway that cut through stands of chestnut, poplar, and pine trees. Strawberries grew wild in fields along the route. Is there a metaphorical equivalent in your own life, Sagittarius? I think there is: a modest, natural path that you will ultimately build into a major thoroughfare buzzing with activity. Part of you will feel sad at the loss of innocence that results. But mostly you’ll be proud of the visionary strength you will have summoned to create such an important conduit.

(Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): Members of the industrial band Skinny Puppy are upset with the U.S. military. They discovered that an interrogation team at America’s Guantanamo Bay detention camp tortured prisoners by playing their music at deafening volumes for extended periods. That’s why they sent an invoice to the Defense Department for $666,000 and are threatening to sue. Now would be a good time for you to take comparable action, Pisces. Are others distorting your creations or misrepresenting your meaning? Could your reputation benefit from repair? Is there anything you can do to correct people’s misunderstandings about who you are and what you stand for?

BOOCHIES SET TO OPEN: A new café named

Boochies is opening in early August at  West De la Guerra Street, the former home of Bella Dolce Bakery and Saffron. Owner Rebekah Winquest, a nutritionist who will be running the restaurant with her husband, Shawn, tells me the eatery will be 100 percent organic and include juices, gluten-free baked goods, raw desserts, Matcha tea, and pâté of the day. The café will also be a “health and nutrition hub” offering cooking and nutrition classes.“Everything is made from scratch,” said Winquest. “For example, the muffins are made from my own gluten-free blend of almonds, chia seeds, raw coconut. My ingredients are not cheap, but we really worked on keeping the prices down. Every single ingredient is very specifically researched and hand chosen. If I’m not going to put it in my body, I am not going to create it in a recipe. We have a little bit of everything. We have

HEALTH HUB: Nutritionist Rebekah Winquest will run Boochies at 113 West De la Guerra Street.

OUTER AISLE GOURMET: While attending a Boochies preopening party, I enjoyed a unique pizza crust made by Outer Aisle Gourmet. Owner Jeanne David tells me she just developed a proprietary cauliflower pizza crust and cauliflower veggie bread. “There is no flour, no carbs at all besides the cauliflower,” says David.“It includes a little bit of parmesan cheese, cottage cheese. It’s high protein with two carbs and two grams of fat. We will be selling them locally first then hopefully building a national distribution model.” Outer Aisle Gourmet products will be available September 1 at Isabella Gourmet Foods,  East Figueroa Street.
