Local brothersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;free runningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; film debuts Saturday at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival BY STEVEN LIBOWITZ


When most people encounter a picnic table, tree branch, barricade or other obstacle in their path, they naturally step around, duck under or otherwise avoid whatever stands in their way. But parkour athletes see the objects as a challenge -- something to leap, bounce off of, roll over or swing around â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all in the name of sport. Now, two local filmmakers are taking viewers behind the scene to see how the parkour athletes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as well as practitioners of two other peripheral extreme sports called â&#x20AC;&#x153;breakingâ&#x20AC;? (which involves head spinning and other dance-like moves) and â&#x20AC;&#x153;trickingâ&#x20AC;? (a cross between martial arts and flips) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; train, practice and perform the feats. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Stunt Sports,â&#x20AC;? which premieres 2 p.m. Saturday at the Metro 4 as part of the 2012 Santa Barbara International Film Festival, represents the feature documentary debut of Samuel and Ian McKaig, brothers in their mid-20s who are fifth generation Santa Barbara natives. The two produced, wrote, edited, shot and did all the special effects for the film together, with Ian mostly handling the camera and computer work and Samuel writing and co-directing.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about getting from point A to point B as fast as possible, overcoming as many obstacles as you can with just your body.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Samuel McKaig, filmmaker

Samuel, who under the stage name Sammy Styles is a member of the LA Breakers, is also one of the subjects. The film follows him rehabbing from a fractured vertebrae so he can train to represent the US overseas as judge and competitor, plus focuses in on two other athletes, one each from tricking and parkour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I train with all these guys from the other sports on regular basis,â&#x20AC;? he explained in an interview outside the film festival headquarters earlier this week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all my friends. I just sort of said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pull all our stuff together and show the world what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Film seemed an appropriate medium since so many of their athletes appear in the movies anway, performing dangerous and astonishing stunts for such movies as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tron,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Green Hornetâ&#x20AC;?

Panel OKs bridge changes

Photos by Victor Maccharoli, DAILY SOUND



After several rounds of grousing, the Santa Barbara City Planning Commission approved a Coastal Development Permit for a new Chapala Street bridge. The bridge runs over Mission Creek near the corner of Chapala and Yanonali Streets and has been deemed structural-

“The unsafe bridge and the protection of pedestrians and bicyclists are most important in my mind,” – Commissioner John Campanella

ly unsound. After getting a grant from CalTrans, city staff undertook plans to upgrade the structure. The new bridge would sport a narrower design, running from 50 feet and widening to 87 at one end to accommodate turns, down from a width of 148 feet. Despite being smaller, the new design is more sound which removes a 15 ton weight limit placed on the bridge. That would allow larger vehicles, such as buses to the planned Children’s Museum on lower State Street, to run on the road. But the five-year plan came close to stalling at yesterday’s meeting after some commissioners felt the design had been flawed. Commissioner Mike Jordan felt the bridge could still be

smaller and questioned necessity of keeping the bridge twoway or even having the bridge at all. “I think this is what cities do,” Jordan said. “They get money and they build bridges.” Commissioner Bruce Bartlett also questioned the need for another bridge in an area with such a low traffic count. He said he’d rather see the money spent on habitat preservation in the creek or on structures that see more travelers. “Why are we throwing so much money at a bridge that hardly anyone drives over when there’s other bridges that are completely washed out and have a lot more traffic,” Bartlett said. Though not as ardent as her colleagues, commissioner Deborah Schwartz also had reservations. While she said she understood there might be some justification for a new bridge, she called the current proposal “unenlightened” and felt there should be something more in line with some of the neighborhood’s future developments. “I don’t see that vision and that enlightenment expressed in this project plan,” Schwartz said. Planner Jessica Grant pointed out that many options had been considered over the years. Eliminating the bridge would require building a cul de sac and buying property the city didn’t have. Making the street one-way would not have reduced the bridge size and required an ordinance from the city council. Project planner Michael Berman added that the city didn’t have the money to move on a project itself and the state requirements were final. See BRIDGE, page 8

‘Civic Center Slapper’ strikes again NEWS IN BRIEF

New dosing solutions HEALTH

Daily Sound

An elusive assailant known as the "Civic Center Slapper" -- or possibly a copycat -- has struck again in Los Angeles, punching a federal prosecutor in the jaw, police said on Thursday. The bold attacker struck his latest victim as he walked near a federal courthouse in downtown Los Angeles on Friday evening, knocking his head into the side of the building, a police spokesman said. The 51-year-old assistant U.S. attorney was not identified by authorities and it was unclear if he was injured. Police believe the suspect is responsible for two other such attacks in downtown Los Angeles over the past few weeks attributed to the so-called "Civic Center Slapper." One of those incidents came after police arrested another man, identified as Jermaine Moran, on January 20 on suspicion of carrying out a string of four similar assaults.

Oakland hires female fire chief

In a career spent climbing ladders, Teresa Deloach-Reed of Oakland has grasped a landmark rung by being named to become the first black woman chief of a major metropolitan U.S. fire department. Deloach-Reed, 53, is slated to take the helm of the 580-person Oakland Fire Department in March, following her appointment to the position earlier this week. She already was part of a select group. As of 2010, fewer than 4 percent of the nation's firefighters were women, and just over 6 percent were African Americans, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. "It's exciting," Deloach-Reed told Reuters earlier this week in a telephone interview. "There are still a lot of (fire) departments that don't have any women," said Deloach-Reed, whose last post was as assistant fire chief of San Jose, California. "We still have a long way to

Hacked companies remain silent

At least a half-dozen major U.S. companies whose computers have been infiltrated by cyber criminals or international spies have not admitted to the incidents despite new guidance from securities regulators urging such disclosures. Top U.S. cybersecurity officials believe corporate hacking is widespread, and the Securities and Exchange Commission issued a lengthy "guidance" document on October 13 outlining how and when publicly traded companies should report hacking incidents and cybersecurity risk. But with one full quarter having elapsed since the SEC request, some major companies that are known to have had significant digital security breaches have said nothing about the incidents in their regulatory filings.

Santa Maria police grieve over shooting death DAILY SOUND STAFF REPORT

The Santa Maria Police Department issued a statement on Friday urging the community to support the police department after the recent shooting death of a police officer. Officer Albert Covarrubias Jr., had been under investigation for sexual misconduct with a minor. A week ago Covarrubias became aware of the investigation while on duty, according to a statement by the SMPD. That necessitated arresting Covarrubias immediately. When officers came to take him into custody at the corner of McElhaney Avenue and Broadway Street, he allegedly resisted officers taking him into custody, drawing his gun and firing.

Another officer on the scene shot Covarrubias once. He died later at Marian Medical Center. “The past few days have been among the most difficult in the history of our police department,” said Chief Danny R. Macagni, in a news release. “Regrettably, one of our own was implicated in a serious crime. We had credible information that he likely was about to harm himself and also a member of the public “In an effort to protect the officer and the public, we felt we had to move as quickly as possible to detain somebody who we believed posed a dangerous threat to himself and others. Our goal, as it is in every situation, was to secure the accused officer with minimal risk to everyone involved. Nobody anticipat-

Vandals hit Mesa banks, ATMs The Santa Barbara Police Department is investigating a spree of vandalism on Santa Barbara’s Mesa. The acts have taken place at ATMs and banks. The most recent act of vandalism took place on Wednesday about 2:30 a.m. Vandals smashed a Wells Fargo ATM screen and spray painted “class war” across the front. Police also said the marks somehow referenced the Occupy Oakland movement. That same day, about 1:50 a.m., police officers said that someone shattered the glass doors of Santa Barbara Bank and Trust, 1960 Cliff Drive. The ATM screens were also damaged. Then, about 4:10 a.m., police officers responded to Starbucks, 1990 Cliff Drive, after a food delivery employee arrived and

saw that the front glass doors were smashed and cracked. The Police Department is investigating the acts and is attempting access video surveillance from the surrounding businesses and ATM machines. This week’s acts of vandalism followed similar incidents between Jan. 10 and Jan. 24, when Wells Fargo Bank ATMs were vandalized. The ATM screens were shattered and messages were sprayed on the exterior wall of the next-door CVS Pharmacy at 1835 Cliff Driv). The reporting party stated that these incidents occurred on January 10, 12 & 24, 2012. Residents with any information are encouraged to contact SBPD Detective Mike Brown at (805) 897-2340 or to call anonymously at (805) 897-2386.

California lawmakers eye revenue from Facebook IPO

California lawmakers are already drawing up plans for spending revenue generated from wealth tied to selling shares in Facebook, which took its first step toward its highly anticipated initial public offering on Wednesday. Republicans in California's Democrat-led legislature see the potential for a windfall for the state from Facebook's initial public offering and would spend the money on schools and paying down the state's debt, two of their leaders said on Wednesday. The proposal by Senate Republican Leader Bob Huff and Assembly Republican Leader Connie Conway reflects the keen interest in the Democrat-led legislature in revenue the Silicon Valley-based social network giant's shareholders could generate to help bring stability to California's finances.

Komen struggles to defuse Planned Parenthood crisis


On Facebook and Twitter, Americans expressed anger that a widely supported cancer charity appeared to have taken sides in the polarizing debate. "Susan Komen would not give in to bullies or fear. Too bad the foundation bearing her name did," writer Judy Blume, known for her books on girls growing up, said via Twitter. Democrats in the U.S. Senate urged Komen to reconsider. "It would be tragic if any woman, let alone thousands of women, lost access to these potentially life-saving screenings because of a politically motivated attack," more than 20 U.S. Democratic senators said in a letter due to be sent later on Thursday. Activists on both sides of the abortion debate cited evidence of a political shift within Komen. Abortion rights advocates saw it as part of a turn toward the AIRMON E EP


Planned Parenthood, already barred from using federal funds to provide abortions, has seen the U.S. tax dollars it still receives for family aid to poor women come under intensifying Republican scrutiny in Congress. "Politics have no place in health care. Breast cancer screening saves lives and hundreds of thousands of women rely on Planned Parenthood for access to care," Bloomberg said in a statement, pledging $250,000 to the group. Planned Parenthood has also come under attack from lawmakers in several states over the past year, including North Carolina, Indiana and Kansas, who have attempted to block state funding. In Kansas, some local prosecutors are pressing criminal charges against Planned Parenthood, alleging it failed to maintain paperwork related to the abortions it provided.

Planned Parenthood had received about $700,000 annually from Komen to provide poor women with breast cancer screening, education and access to affordable mammograms. As the outcry intensified, Komen founder Nancy Brinker took to national television and the Internet to deny the charity's decision was the result of lobbying from anti-abortion groups. "We will never bow to political pressure," she said in a video posted on the Komen website. "The scurrilous accusations being hurled at this organization are profoundly hurtful to so many of us," said Brinker, who founded the group following her sister's death in 1980 of breast cancer. "More importantly, they are a dangerous distraction from the work that still remains to be done in ridding the world of breast cancer." But philanthropy experts said it would be difficult for Komen to convince people it was not playing politics. "There's a long-term weakening of the Susan G. Komen brand from this decision," said Melissa Berman, chief executive of nonprofit Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisers, which counsels wealthy donors who give more $200 million a year. "We would see donors reluctant to be involved with a charity

right. Brinker served as an ambassador to Hungary under President George W. Bush. In 2011, she appointed Republican Karen Handel to a senior policy position with the foundation. Handel, a former Georgia secretary of state, ran unsuccessfully for state governor in 2010 on a platform that called for defunding Planned Parenthood. Brinker "is overseeing a fundamental transformation of her organization. It has become a political organization. It is no longer an organization whose mission is to advance women's health," said Terry O'Neill, president of the National Organization for Women. Jeanne Monahan of the conservative Christian group, Family Research Council, described some of the pressures Komen faced. "Groups didn't even know there was a formal relationship between Planned Parenthood and Komen until the last few years, and Komen got a lot of negative feedback about that from people who are right to life," she said. About 15,000 anti-abortion activists sent e-mails to Komen in support of its decision, FRC said. There were signs of dissent within Komen's ranks. Media reports said the Komen foundation's top public health official, Mollie Williams, had resigned after the decision was made in December. Williams declined to comment on her exit because of a confidentiality agreement with Komen. "The divide between these two very important organizations saddens me," she said in an email. "I am hopeful their passionate and courageous leaders ... can swiftly resolve this conflict in a manner that benefits the women they both serve."




"Breast cancer screening saves lives and hundreds of thousands of women rely on Planned Parenthood for access to care," â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Michael Bloomberg, New York City Mayor

whose decision-making gets influenced by short-term pressures and politics because you would always wonder who is really in charge." The Christian Science Monitor reported that the Komen foundation nevertheless reported a 100 percent increase in donations received during the past two days, although it said no hard numbers were available. Komen representatives could not immediately be reached for comment on the report. A Dallas-based charity, the Lee and Amy Fikes Foundation, said it was making a $250,000 donation to Planned Parenthood to allow it to continue providing breast-screening services in the absence of Komen's support. "Our family is saddened that the far right has relentlessly and successfully pressured (Komen) to cut funding for breast screening, referral and education support to low-income women who, until now, have been able to depend on the partnership between Komen and Planned Parenthood for their health," the Fikes Foundation said in a statement. The Komen foundation, known for its pink ribbon symbol and Race for the Cure fundraisers, has collected more than $1.9 billion for breast cancer research and programs. It has affiliates in more than 100 U.S. cities and 50 countries. Komen said its decision reflected a move to eliminate duplicate grants and tighten eligibility rules. That includes barring money to groups under investigation by authorities. Planned Parenthood is the subject of a probe by U.S. Rep. Cliff Stearns, a Florida Republican who opposes abortion.


The world's leading breast cancer charity, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, struggled on Thursday to defuse a growing crisis over its decision to cut funding for Planned Parenthood, which provides abortion and birth control services. The sudden rift between the two top U.S. women's health advocacy groups triggered a furious debate on social media sites between supporters and opponents of abortion rights. Democratic lawmakers called on Komen to reconsider its move as the organization was thrust into the center of an intractable dispute that some say will hamper its work for years to come. New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg pledged his own money to help Planned Parenthood recoup the lost funds.

U.S. plans $2.8 billion upgrade of F-16 fighter

The U.S. Air Force said Thursday it plans a $2.8 billion upgrade of about 350 of its aging F-16 multi-role fighter planes to help offset slower purchases of the next-generation F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. The work, running into the 2020s, will extend the service life of select F-16 airframes. Other upgrades include advanced radar, sensors, cockpit display, electronic warfare and communications capabilities, the service said. "We have worked through the implications of the delays in the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter program," Air Force Secretary Michael Donley told the Air Force Association earlier in the day. "And we have made a further commitment this year to modernize about 350 F-16s in the fleet going forward." Ann Stefanek, an Air Force spokeswoman, said the upgraded F-16s would receive active, electronically scanned array (AESA) radar. Northrop Grumman Corp and Raytheon Co build rival systems and are likely to compete for the work. "Overall, the program will run into the 2020s and have an estimated total cost of $2.8 billion," Stefanek said in an emailed reply to queries from Reuters about Donley's remarks. The Air Force will pick the "best of the fleet" to undergo the modernization for later-model Block 50 and some Block 40 F16s, Stefanek said. The program is "scalable" based on the service's fighter needs, she added. The Air Force has just over 1,000 F-16s in its current inventory, of which about 640 are Block 40/50s, distributed among

Addison Thompson pointed out that the project had gone through years of reviews by planning commissions and felt now had been the wrong time to be complaining about sizes and necessities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some interesting points were raised, but I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a few years late in raising them,â&#x20AC;?

While breaking and tricking are surely athletic, parkour, which also goes by the name â&#x20AC;&#x153;free running,â&#x20AC;? is perhaps the most amazing to watch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The guys are jumping and flipping off of rooftops two stories high,â&#x20AC;?

Ian said making the movie was thrilling to see even from behind the lens. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting to watch people jump off buildings.

active, Guard and Reserve components. None has yet undergone the structural "service life extension program" or capability upgrades now planned, the service said. Lockheed Martin Corp builds both the F-16 and three versions of the radar-evading F-35, which is in low-rate initial production in a program co-financed by the United States and eight partner nations. More than 4,450 F-16s have been delivered to 26 nations since the program started more than 30 years ago, including 54 follow-on buys by 15 customers, according to Lockheed, the Pentagon's No. 1 supplier by sales. The U.S. F-16 modernization could point the way for modernization of many such F-16 fleets worldwide. The U.S. Defense Department, in its third F-35 program restructuring in as many years, is set to trim 179 Joint Strike Fighter planes from production between 2013 and 2017. This would pare the number built for the U.S. military to 244 from 423 during this time. The F-35 slowdown will help satisfy a congressional mandate to cut $479 billion from the Pentagon's budget over 10 years as part of a U.S. deficit-reduction push. The service will focus on "common configurations" for its key aircraft to maximize operational flexibility and minimize sustainment costs, Donley told the Air Force Association audience.

John Campanella, new to the commission, said that while he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as familiar with the project as some, public safety trumped all the other concerns. A minor detail caused the original motion to stall. A change to materials that use a quieter installation method led to staff proposing construction times start at 7 a.m. instead of 8 a.m.Bartlett, Jordan, and Schwartz all complained that the start time is too early for a residential neighborhood. With Stella Larson absent, that left the commission deadlocked at 3-3. Schwartz said she would change her vote if the start time had been left at 8 a.m. That got the permit approved though Bartlett and Jordan still opposed it. take you behind the scenes so can see how they train and how they do what they do, as well as the struggles they go through to be as good as they are.â&#x20AC;? But unlike a lot of documentaries, the emphasis is on the action, not the explanation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We wanted to make it more like a (real) movie,â&#x20AC;? Ian explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a lot of talking head interviews or narration. The camera is moving as much as possible and there are lots of special effects.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was chasing after the guys jumping off roof tops with a full on steady cam rig,â&#x20AC;? Samuel said of Ian. Why anyone would want to endure such physical tribulations is a natural question. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what the film is about,â&#x20AC;? Samuel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone has their different reasons. It has a lot to do with overcoming your fears, dealing with the injuriesâ&#x20AC;Ś.The fear is always there, but you just deal with it. And try to use the adrenaline to do the moves even better.â&#x20AC;? For Samuel, the benefits go beyond the sport itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps you overcome everything,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You train yourself how to succeed by determination and working hard. You learn that everything is possible. If you can do a flip off a two story building and land on your feet, you can do anything.â&#x20AC;?

ROMNEY PLAYS TRUMP CARD IN VEGAS After stumbling with remarks suggesting he was indifferent to America's poor, Republican White House hopeful Mitt Romney was endorsed on Thursday by one of the country's most famous wealthy businessmen - real estate mogul and reality television star Donald Trump. Trump, who put his own net worth at up to $7 billion, said he was backing Romney in the race for the nomination to oppose President Barack Obama in the November 6 election because of his knowledge of the economy. "Mitt is tough, he's smart, he's sharp," Trump said, standing before a line of American flags at his Trump International Hotel, Romney and his wife, Ann, to his right. "He's not going to allow bad things to continue to happen in this country we all love. So, Governor Romney, go out and get 'em. You can do it," Trump said. He said he was willing to campaign for Romney and would consider donating to his Super PAC - the independent political group spending tens of millions of dollars in support of Romney. Romney cemented his position as Republican front-runner by trouncing rival Newt Gingrich in Florida's primary on Tuesday, and holds a strong lead in polls of likely Nevada voters ahead of the state's caucuses on Saturday. The ex-Massachusetts governor and former private equity executive says his private sector experience makes him the best candidate to right the troubled U.S. economy. He praised Trump's business acumen as he thanked him for his support. "I've had some success in the private sector. Not quite as successful as this guy, but successful nonetheless," Romney said. Trump's support could backfire on Romney, the son of a former governor and corporate chief executive who is worth some $270 million. Romney's comments about poor Americans on Wednesday,

during what should have been a victory lap after his Florida triumph, underscored the challenge he faces convincing voters hit by the economic downturn he can relate to their problems. "I'm not concerned about the very poor, we have a safety net there," Romney said on CNN. "If it needs repair, I'll fix it."


Trump cultivates an aura of glitz and glamour and has been derided for pushing a discredited charge that Obama was not born in the United States. He has toyed with entering the presidential race himself, possibly as a third-party candidate. "This signifies a further consolidation of the Republican base," Republican strategist Ford O'Connell said. "But, given Romney's comments yesterday, I could see (Obama's campaign) would like to tie this as a way to portray Mitt Romney as someone who is not in touch with the plight of the average American." The Democratic National Committee quickly seized the opportunity to release a video titled, "Mitt Romney and Donald Trump: They both like firing people," referring to the tagline of Trump's TV reality show "The Apprentice" and an earlier Romney gaffe, "I like being able to fire people." Trump said he was impressed with Romney's tough talk on China, India and OPEC. Romney criticizes China's trade policy frequently as he campaigns, and he lashed out again on Thursday. "They've taken jobs from Americans. They haven't played fair. We have to have a president who will stand up to cheaters," Romney said. Trump announced he was leaving the Republican party in December after most of the Republican White House hopefuls, including Romney, declined to participate in a debate he planned to host. But from the Romney team's perspective it is

better to have the casino and hotel owner with them than against them. Romney has won two of the first four contests in the stateby-state process of choosing a nominee, taking primaries in New Hampshire and Florida by healthy margins. Gingrich won South Carolina's primary, and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum won Iowa's caucuses by a narrow margin over Romney. Romney seemed to snatch Trump's backing from Gingrich after U.S. media reported late on Wednesday he was supporting the former speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, whose presidential campaign has been struggling since his upset victory over Romney in South Carolina on January 21. Gingrich hit Romney for his comments on the poor. "I really believe that we should care about the very poor, unlike Governor Romney. But I believe we should care differently from President Obama," he said during a campaign stop at a Las Vegas manufacturing plant. "What the poor need is a trampoline so they can spring up. I'm for replacing the safety net with a trampoline." A Fox News poll in January suggested support from Trump could do a candidate more harm than good. Twenty-seven percent of those surveyed said his endorsement would make them less likely to vote for a candidate. "It doesn't change my vote," said Sue Mathis, 52, of Las Vegas, who backs Gingrich. "It means absolutely nothing. Trump is a good businessman, but a Steve Wynn endorsement would influence me more," she said, referring to the billionaire Las Vegas casino magnate. Romney won Nevada's caucuses easily during the 2008 campaign, thanks largely to support from his fellow Mormons, who account for about 25 percent of Republican caucus-goers.

Madonna: Super Bowl show a "dream" come true

Pop superstar Madonna said it was a dream come true to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show on Sunday and conceded she was feeling pressure at the idea of singing in front of the huge live television audience. Last year's Super Bowl attracted 111 million U.S. viewers - the largest for a single TV broadcast in the United States. "This is a Midwesterner girl's dream to be performing at the Super Bowl halftime show," said Madonna, who was born in Bay City, Michigan. "In over 25 years of performing that I've done, I have never worked so hard or been so scrupulous or detail-oriented or freaked out as much as I have ... trying to make the most major show at this Super Bowl," she added. Asked if she felt the pressure of the massive audience, Madonna, who has performed at stadiums around the world on her global tours, replied simply "Yes, I do." Madonna, whose biggest global live TV performance was likely Live Aid in 1985, said she would sing three "old songs" and her new single "Give Me All Your Luvin'" during the show. The 53-year-old Material Girl said she would dedicate her performance to her father. "I was raised in the Midwest, and he is the personification of Midwestern values, he gave me the work ethic that I have, so if I am a hardworking girl who never stops it's because of him. "Also, I am sure of all the things I have ever


should have been a $6-$7 million dollar film, for less than $200 thousand. “It’s really authentic and we did it really low budget and we did it with the people from the town, but we also got, like, iconic actors from Britain that were in, like, in punk,” said Sugarman. “Like I was in [the film] Sid and Nancy and the guy that plays in the band, he was Paul Cook in Sid and Nancy, and we got Keith Allen who’s [singer] Lily Allen’s dad to be in it-- it’s just like a bit of a punk fest.” Vinyl also has Phil Daniels in it from Quadrophenia (a movie based on The Who’s legendary rock opera of the same name), as well as Sugarman’s nephew Joel (he’s the kid with the big hair in the band) and there’s even a shot of her little dog, her little star, Bling Bling. During the writing of the film, Sugarman and Cooper would exchange about 15 pages back and forth at a time. “Sara would give it back and say: It’s too American. They wouldn’t say that in Wales,” said Cooper, following her directive to “Just do it punk. In Wales you just do it. In America you’ve got permits and police and rules ... and in our movie, Simon the policeman is really Simon the policeman, in charge of all of


done in my life this will be the thing he is most excited about," she said. The halftime show has increasingly featured high-profile pop acts, a far cry from the first Super Bowl in 1967 when college marching bands entertained the crowd. Paul McCartney, the Rolling Stones, U2, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, The Black Eyed Peas and Janet Jackson are among recent performers. Jackson's appearance in 2004 was the most controversial as she made headlines worldwide with her infamous "wardrobe malfunction." Justin Timberlake, who was performing with Jackson, grabbed her costume and tugged at it, exposing her breast's nipple to millions of TV viewers. Madonna said all efforts had been made to ensure there would not be a similar episode in her show. "Great attention to detail has been paid to my wardrobe, there will be no wardrobe malfunction - I promise," she said. Asked which quarterback she would choose if both called her for a date on Saturday night, the entertainer picked the New York Giants' Eli Manning over the New England Patriots' Tom Brady. Why Eli? Because of the New York connection, she said. A question about Victor Cruz, the salsadancing wide receiver from the New York Giants, got her doing some salsa moves for reporters who packed the room. "He's inspired me," she said.

South Wales.” Near the end of the movie there’s a scene at Mike Peters’ real Love, Hope & Strength benefit concert, where the fictional movie band had 15 minutes on stage. They shot the scene with two cameras and 5 iPhones. “It’s definitely not a studio film,” said Sugarman. “It was down-n-dirty, about punk, about what was really important: the people, the soul, the passion, the heart of punk.” According to Williams, they were really excited to have the world premiere here in Santa Barbara and, actually, the positive response it’s received so far has been a gigantic boost to everyone, giving them confidence for their next screening at 11 a.m. on Monday at Soho House in both New York and Los Angeles, followed about a week later at Soho house in Berlin. “It’s a rock-n-roll as a working class kind of story, but also something that straddles the generations, from the young band to the old geezers who were able to pick it up and have the spirit of being punk rockers even though they were moving on in years,” said Williams. “It seems kind of silly and sweet, and is definitely entertaining.” It couldn’t be more perfect.

Key Senate Republican says drilling bill faces hurdles

The top Republican on the Senate energy committee on Thursday acknowledged passing legislation to boost domestic energy production will be a tough task this year, even as Republicans maneuver to keep the focus on energy issues ahead of the November elections. Senator Lisa Murkowski, however, said she was hopeful that Congress would make some progress on opening up the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, or ANWR, to drilling this year. "When you have a resource as considerable as we have with the ANWR resource, you can't just say we're not even going to attempt to make a run at it because we have an administration that does not support opening up ANWR," Murkowski told reporters at a briefing. Republicans in Congress are pushing on a number of fronts to promote the country's energy industry, including allowing for more drilling to help pay for a new transportation bill and to force the go ahead of the Keystone pipeline project. Republicans and Alaskan lawmakers have wanted to expand drilling in the oil-rich Arctic refuge for years, but have been unable to overcome intense opposition from Democrats and environmentalists. The Obama administration has said repeatedly that drilling in the refuge was off the table, but lawmakers on the Republican-controlled House of Representatives Natural Resources committee advanced a measure on Wednesday that would open a portion of the refuge to oil production. The House energy bill would link drilling in ANWR and expanded offshore oil and gas exploration to a transportation package supporting funding for highways and infrastructure. The move to attach contentious energy items to "must-pass" legislation represents a larger effort by Republicans to make sure energy policy remains front and center this election

year. Republicans have slammed the Obama administration for focusing too much on renewable energy, arguing that increasing production of fossil fuels will strengthen energy security and boost the flagging U.S. economy. Still, Murkowski said that it may be hard to move ahead with the ANWR measure even if it was attached to the transportation bill. "I look at what I know of my colleagues on other side of the aisle and I know there are real hurdles there," Murkowski said. As far as the other House energy proposals, Murkowski said some of them could make it into law, but it's too early to know whether that will be possible. Whitney Stanco, an energy policy analyst at Guggenheim Securities in Washington, said the drilling provisions were unlikely to survive in the Senate. She said language to require a near-term lease sale off Virginia would be the most likely item to move ahead, as both Democratic senators from the state would likely support it. "But so far we haven't seen any movement to separate a Virginia lease sale from the more controversial provisions." Democrats say the recent legislation from House Republicans is focused on scoring political points. "This appears to be a messaging exercise more than a serious attempt at legislation," said Bill Wicker, spokesman for Jeff Bingaman, chair of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee. President Barack Obama said in his State of the Union Address that he also supported a strong domestic energy industry, and noted the sharp increase in oil and gas production during his term. Murkowski chided the White House for taking any credit for the sector when much of the increased output was coming from private and state lands. "It's like Al Gore taking credit for inventing the internet," she said.

President Barack Obama sought to emphasize his Christian faith on Thursday, telling a key election-year voting bloc that he prays every morning and has crafted elements of his economic policies in line with Jesus' teachings. Obama, who rarely goes to church and speaks far less about his religion than his White House predecessors, told about 3,000 people at a National Prayer Breakfast that the challenges facing the United States required him to listen to God, avoid "phony religiosity," and pursue "bold action" in the face of resistance or indifference. "I wake up each morning and I say a brief prayer, and I spend a little time in scripture and devotion," Obama told the annual gathering at a Washington hotel, also saying that pastors periodically stop by the Oval Office, phone

him and send emails so they can pray together. "I don't stop there. I'd be remiss if I stopped there, if my values were limited to personal moments of prayer or private conversations with pastors or friends," he said. "I must try to make sure that those values motivate me as one leader of this great nation." American voters care deeply about religion, with two-thirds saying it is important for a presidential candidate to have strong religious beliefs. When he emerged on the national stage, many Americans were uncertain about Obama's religion and as many as one in five thought he was a Muslim. The president has previously said that although he did not grow up in a religious household, he became a Christian as an adult "by choice."
