AUGUST 22-29, 2013



REVVING ENGINES: Though the City Council election is more than two months away, candidates (from left: Megan Diaz Alley, Gregg Hart, Cruzito Cruz, Mathew Kramer, David Landecker, and Jason Nelson) are already jockeying for position by weighing in on a host of hot-button issues.


No Love for Injunction Latino Democrats Get Jump on Candidates’ Forums



conspicuous lack of any support for Santa Barbara’s proposed gang injunction marked this year’s first City Council candidates forum, which was organized by a consortium of five Latino organizations and spearheaded by the Latino Democrats. Even Jason Nelson, the only candidate to list youth violence as the city’s most pressing problem, dismissed the injunction as a bad idea “for civil liberties reasons.” If the response was notably one-sided, that may be because four of the 10 candidates — including incumbents Bendy White and Frank Hotchkiss, who have supported the injunction in the past — were not present. Last week’s meeting was organized in a hurry, and candidates were given only a week’s notice. In addition, it was held two weeks before Labor Day — the traditional start of the campaign season — when the City Council is on a three-week recess. Candidate Gregg Hart, one of two former councilmembers now seeking to make a political comeback, sought to make hay out of these absences, expressing “surprise and disappointment” that White and Hotchkiss did not show, nor did candidates Michael Jordan and Lesley Wiscomb, a planning commissioner and parks commissioner, respectively. “I don’t think that’s appropriate,” Hart said. And while all candidates present were critical of the injunction, Hart — a moderate Democrat during his previous tenure on the council — proved the most outspokenly so. He objected that City Hall had spent at least $500,000 to pursue the injunction, claiming it would only affect 10


15 people, when there were other legal remedies to control and incarcerate repeat offenders. He also objected that the current council embraced the injunction without first holding any public hearings. “That’s extremely poor judgment,” he said. By contrast, he noted City Hall has funded only one half-time position for youth services. Candidate David Landecker, the other former councilmember on the comeback trail, said the current council was given bad political and legal advice about the injunction, noting that as an attorney, he could have added muchneeded legal expertise to the council deliberations, which took place behind closed doors. But Landecker — who enjoys key support from Mayor Helene Schneider and Councilmember White, both injunction supporters — was more circumspect in his criticism, saying only that the council needed to be given “space” to move away from its commitment to the injunction. Firsttime candidate Megan Diaz Alley — a member of the Parks and Recreation Commission — termed it “a travesty” that youth programs had been cut as much as they’d been, a note frequently sounded by third-time candidate Cruzito Cruz. The gang injunction, first unveiled two years ago, remains embroiled in the courts. In this November’s council race, the mayoral seat is up for grabs — challenging incumbent Helene Schneider is outsider candidate and Mesa maverick Wayne Scoles — as are three council seats. Of those, two council seats are occupied by incumbents — White and Hotchkiss — who have already raised sizable sums to retain them, leaving one bona fide open spot. With no obvious unifying issues, both sides of the political aisle have been stricken by frag-

august 29, 2013

mentation. As a result, there are more “liberal Democrats” running than there are available seats; the same holds true for the conservatives. On the so-called left are White, Landecker, Hart, and Alley. Alley — a political newcomer — is running as a renter, Latina, and environmentalist. On the right the lines are more blurry, with Hotchkiss the one clear-cut conservative Republican in the fray, though Wiscomb and Nelson — both decline-to-states — can be expected to draw from that same voter base. Candidate and planning commissioner Michael Jordan, also a declined-to-state, should garner support from the downtown business community having served many years on the Downtown Organization board. Cruzito Cruz, now on his third campaign, and Mathew Kramer, running his second, will use the forums to raise issues throughout the race, but not money. In fact, at last week’s forum, Kramer dismissed campaign contributions as “bribes” and urged those in attendance not to give him any. Absent the emergence of any defining issues, the race promises to be a contest about personality, experience, and leadership skills. To that end, none of the candidates hit any home runs; none blew it either. When asked to identify the top issues of concern to Latino residents, all but one of the candidates — Nelson — cited lack of affordable housing and explained to what extent they would — or would not — push existing zoning densities to promote the development of affordable rental housing. Traffic congestion came in a close second. Regardless of ethnicity, it appears, housing and transportation remain the alpha and omega of Santa Barbara politics.

news briefs LAW & DISORDER


News of the Week

A 47-year-old Santa Barbara man well-known to area law enforcement was arrested 8/23, two days after he allegedly stabbed two men in the 1500 block of Highway 154. According to the Sheriff’s Office, Gabriel Nicholas Rivera (pictured above) — most recently booked at County Jail on a probation violation in January — was staying at a nearby home on 8/21 when he got into a verbal argument with the men and stabbed them. When deputies responded to the scene, they found the pair with moderate injuries and sitting in a black pickup truck along Highway 154, and the search began for Rivera. Despite dispatching helicopter and K-9 units, authorities were unable to locate him. At around 1:30 p.m. on 8/23, Rivera was arrested when he returned to the property to pick up some of his belongings. Police are investigating a reported sexual assault that allegedly took place 8/25 on the Santa Barbara City College campus. In a security email alert sent to students and faculty, SBCC officials termed the assault an “alleged rape” and said the victim was approached from behind and knocked to the ground. Police spokesperson Sgt. Riley Harwood said his office received a secondhand report of the sexual assault at around 10:40 a.m. on 8/27. He said detectives have been speaking with the victim’s father, but the victim — an adult female who lives out of state — has not been available for interviews. She’s currently in transit with her family back to their home state, Harwood said, explaining Santa Barbara authorities are making arrangements with law enforcement in the victim’s area so a forensic exam can be performed and so the woman can be connected with the appropriate support and resources. Neil Baker, the former UCSB employee arrested last week on felony vandalism charges after he was caught tampering with a window at the school’s Engineering and Sciences Building, pleaded not guilty on 8/23 in Santa Barbara Superior Court. Baker, 54, is also charged with second-degree commercial burglary and trespassing on private property. After he was arrested in 2010 for allegedly making threats against the school — Baker left the university in 2004 after working as a senior development engineer — he was named a “person of interest” by UCSB and has been active in online forums claiming the “UCSB mafia” ruined his life, among other conspiracy theories. Baker is scheduled to appear in court on 9/9 for a preliminary hearing.


Santa Barbara Judge Colleen Sterne is allowing a wrongful-death case to proceed against two area pharmacies — and four South Coast pharmacists — who dispensed a combination of powerful and highly addictive painkillers to Roscoe Steve Meadows, who died of an overdose on September 20, 2009, that had been prescribed by Dr. Julio Diaz, a k a the “Candyman.” Diaz was arrested by federal authorities for drug trafficking in January 2012 and has been implicated in the drug-overdose deaths of 11 people. Meadows’s three children sued Sansum Pharmacy and San Ysidro Pharmacy, alleging they should have more closely monitored the quantity of the painkillers their father was taking. Attorneys for the defendants argued that Meadows’s children waited too long to file their lawsuit, contending the statute of limitations allows only one year from the time of death to file. Judge Sterne rejected this argument, finding in favor of the heirs, who asserted — among many things — they weren’t given cause to wonder about the quality of their father’s care until Diaz was arrested in 2012, nearly three years after their father’s death, and federal agents showed them his medical files for the first time. Attorneys for the pharmacies noted the death certificate — issued in December 2009 — concluded that Meadows “consumed a toxic amount of medication” and that he died of “multiple drug ingestion.” That, they argued, should have put his heirs on notice. In her ruling, Judge Sterne found that the statute of limitations issue was sufficiently — Nick Welsh cloudy that it should not derail the case.

A Sheriff’s Office regulation limiting mail to jail inmates to 3" ú5" postcards continues to provoke blowback from those with incarcerated family members, many of whom have spoken at the last two county supervisor meetings. They include a woman named Marissa Garcia, who organized a group called Right to Write, which has begun a petition on Her husband is in jail, and she read a letter of his during public comment on Tuesday.

Just before 1 p.m. on 8/23, county firefighters and search and rescue personnel responded to the Seven Falls area for a call of a hiker in distress. It appeared the hiker had worked his way out of a canyon and was exploring a rock outcropping above the falls when he became dehydrated and was unable to make his way back down. The hiker took shelter in a shaded area and called 9-1-1. Once he was spotted by the helicopter, a firefighter paramedic was lowered to assess his condition and attach a harness so he could be hoisted into the chopper. The hiker was then transported by air to the Santa Barbara airport and from there via ambulance to Cottage Hospital.

The public has until 8/30 to comment on the various ideas being considered to manage Goleta Beach for the next few decades, with plans that range from letting parts of Santa Barbara County’s most visited park erode away in favor of shoreline health to protecting the grass, parking lots, restrooms, picnic benches, and other amenities at all costs. The issue has pitted fans of the park-like setting, including City of Goleta officials, against more eco-minded parties such as Surfrider and the Environmental Defense Center, which fear the eventual loss of sand due to existing, unpermitted rock revetments. The deadline for feedback on the environmental report, which was originally set for early August, was extended to 8/30 due to complaints about inefficient public noticing.

Old Town Goleta was soaked by a water-main break at the corner of Hollister Avenue and Rutherford Street on Saturday evening. The flood began around 7 p.m. and was still spewing water two hours later, causing localized flooding and prompting law enforcement to temporarily shut down the main drag. Around 9 p.m., one unnamed deputy, who had been on-scene for hours, said that they did not yet know the cause but that the water was starting to slow down. “So they either found it,” he said, “or we’re running out of water.” Come Monday, the Goleta Water District was considering how to fix the massive sinkhole that remained, with repairs expected to happen midweek. The cause of the break is thought to be old infrastructure.

A 235-foot-tall rocket that’s more than twice the height of the Granada Theatre blasted off from Vandenberg Air Force Base the morning of 8/28 and delivered what analysts say is a massive spy satellite into low orbit. The Delta IV-Heavy rocket, the biggest in the country, was built by privately held United Launch Alliance in conjunction with the U.S. Air Force. According to Vandenberg officials, the rocket will deploy a “national security payload for the NRO [National Reconnaissance Office],” but authorities have not elaborated on what the payload is. The launch was the second Delta IV-Heavy mission from Vandenberg after one took off from the Santa Barbara County base in January 2011.

On a night when the Santa Barbara school board discussed the role of fundraising in influencing how bond monies are spent, La Cumbre Junior High School principal Jo Ann Caines announced plans by La Cumbre’s foundation to raise $252,470 in order to improve the exterior of the school’s auditorium — the third-largest venue in the City of Santa Barbara, Caines pointed out to the board. Bond funds have already been pledged to improve the interior of the theater, which is outdated compared to facilities at other secondary schools. Students at Adams Elementary School learned about the marketing potential of corporate sponsorships and got some swag to boot when Costco delivered 424 backpacks for kindergarten through 4th graders on the first day of the school year. Inside the bags were back-to-school essentials including folders, scissors, rulers, and erasers. “In order to be prepared, you need to bring your backpack to school,” Principal Amy Alzina told her students after reading a poem about success from a children’s book cowritten by legendary basketball coach John Wooden.

STATE A bill authored by State Assemblymember Das Williams to protect wildlife from potentially cruel and unusual deaths was signed into law by Gov. Jerry Brown on 8/26. The bill targets the nuisance wildlife trapping industry — and is meant to protect pet dogs and cats — by imposing stricter restrictions on specific traps, when and where they can be set, and their sizes. It also specifically outlaws killing caught animals by drowning, chest crushing, or injecting toxic chemicals such as nail polish remover. “We share this planet with wildlife,” Williams said in a statement. “Animals cannot speak for themselves, so we must speak for them and stop their torturous, slow and painful deaths.”

PEOPLE Army Specialist Kenneth Alvarez of Santa Maria was killed 8/23 in Afghanistan when an improvised explosive device (IED) detonated near him, killing the 23-year-old and another combat engineer. Alvarez was stationed in Haft Asiab, Afghanistan, and was assigned to the 2nd Engineer Battalion, 36th Engineer Brigade at White Sands Missile Range, NM. He was a graduate of Delta High School. In recognition of his service and sacrifice, the City of Santa Maria lowered its flags to half-staff last week. Alvarez leaves behind a wife and young child and was remembered at a funeral service for his everpresent smile and infectious sense of humor.

Dog Days for High Schools

In a rare split vote, the Santa Barbara school board approved the renewal of a contract with Interquest Detection Canines to provide drug-sniffing dogs for one more year. For the price of $13,500, a handler and a dog will pay 60 half-day visits to the district’s high schools to sniff around classrooms and parked cars. Trustee Pedro Paz and Board President Monique Limón both dissented. Limón — along with Annette Cordero, who is no longer on the board — also voted against the dogs when they were first brought on. “It’s just not an investment I feel confident about,” Limón said, noting that she had just heard a story about a student whose backpack was identified for marijuana even though there were no drugs in it. Drug use has been trending down for three years, she pointed out, while the dogs have only been here for one. Ed Heron said that the dogs are there to keep drugs off campus, not for intervention. He pointed out that the district invests way more in intervention than prevention: for instance, $195,000 on counselors from the Council on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. He and Kate Parker said they felt the dogs played a role in the decreased number of drug-related suspensions. “It’s correlational data at best,” said Pedro Paz, who analyzes data for his day job as a program evaluator with First Five Santa Barbara County. Although Superintendent David Cash noted that all of the high school principals requested one additional year of the dogs in order to collect more data, Paz said that wouldn’t make a difference if the district did not devise a scientific study. He said that he couldn’t vote for an investment of taxpayer dollars based on “faith.” He and Limón also mentioned that the kids are “savvy” about avoiding detection. For instance, they warn each other about the dogs via text. And due to legal precedent, they are allowed to take their bags with them when the dogs inspect their classrooms. Trustee Gayle Eidelson, who voted with the majority, said, “As a parent, school boardmember, member of this community, it’s important … to say this is something that’s not allowed on campus. I feel the drug dogs are a tool enforcing that message.” — Brandon Fastman

iting, and dehydration. Alexander returned to the Cottage ER the next morning at 7 a.m. with “severe and worsening symptoms,” the court filing reads. Hours later, she was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit and diagnosed with severe sepsis with a “presumed diagnosis of pneumonia.” She was ultimately diagnosed with NF and underwent several treatments, but the disease had spread too far. The family claims that negligence on the part of her health-care providers allowed Alexander’s NF to advance to later stages, which substantially reduced her chance of survival. “The bottom line is what is the liability,” said attorney Troy Alexander Brenes, who is representing the family, “and has the hospital since then done anything to update their plan?” The answer to that question remains unknown, as representatives at Cottage Hospital would not comment specifically on the case. In an email, they stated that only four out of the 68 patients treated with NF between 2010 and 2013 at Cottage Health System died from it. Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital, represented by Reback, McAndrews, Kjar, Warford, Stockalper & Moore, denied all the plaintiffs’ allegations and any wrongdoing in legal filings. Both sides will reconvene in court in September. COU RTESY


BY K E L S E Y B R U G G E R udge Donna Geck has allowed attorneys for the family of 43-year-old Carmen Alexander (pictured), who died last year of a flesh-eating bacteria infection, 14 days to amend their complaint against Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital. Alexander’s family is suing the hospital and two doctors for wrongful death and medical negligence. The popular teacher at Open Alternative School died in February 2012, two days after she was first admitted to Cottage. In their legal filing, her family claims two physicians — Sylvia Kim and John Patrick Wheelock — failed to timely diagnose and treat Alexander, which allowed a serious bacterial infection, known as necrotizing fasciitis (NF), to quickly spread and destroy tissue throughout her body. Doctors could have easily performed simple tests on Alexander to rule out NF, according to attorneys at Newportbased Lopez McHugh LLP. The law firm and the plaintiffs — Alexander’s three children through their legal guardian, Vadim Hsu — say the doctors should not have discharged Alexander the same day she was admitted to Cottage Hospital, because she demonstrated “classic signs of NF,” such as localized chest pain, swelling of the chest, vom-

Food Stamps on Chopping Block


BY K E L S E Y B R U G G E R eginning November 1, “food stamp” benefits will decrease country-wide when part of the federal government’s 2009 stimulus package reaches its scheduled end. These across-the-board cuts for what’s known as SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program) will slash food assistance for nearly 47 million Americans. Even bigger reductions may occur after the House reconvenes this September. The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities indicates that House Republicans plan to move a bill that doubles proposed SNAP cuts and tightens requirements. In a statement, Congressmember Lois Capps said,“Already Congress has shown that a bipartisan measure is needed to reauthorize the program. However, House leadership seems interested in pushing even more extreme cuts to the program this fall — cuts that would reduce benefits for up to 300,000 California households and kick nearly 280,000 Californians out of the program altogether.”

Food stamp utilization by Californians has gone up significantly since the recession hit several years ago, but only about half of the eligible people in the state receive benefits from the entitlement program. The same is true for Santa Barbara County. There are currently 30,000 individuals on food stamps, but 60,000 people qualify. Santa Barbara ranks 51 out of the state’s 58 counties for utilization relative to number of low-income individuals, according to a 2013 report by California Food Policy Advocates (CFPA). Despite the low ranking, participation at the county level has also increased 10-15 percent annually since 2009. Today, there are twice the food stamp participants in Santa Barbara than there were in 2008. CFPA estimates that if CalFresh — California’s SNAP program — were to reach all eligible individuals in the county, area residents would receive $52.2 million in additional benefits, generating $93.4 million in additional economic activity. “I will continue to work with my colleagues in the House and Senate to keep SNAP strong,” Capps said.

I’m not sure if she had any good intentions, or if she was just a good con artist. — DA investigator Norma Hansen, describing Penny Estes, accused of defrauding fire victims trying to rebuild their homes.

What Options for Chumash?

Tribe Reaches Out to County Planning

augusT 29, 2013

ne day after receiving August 20th’s bad news that the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors would not be engaging in a government-to-government dialogue with the Santa Ynez Band of Chumash Indians, the tribe’s government affairs officer, Sam Cohen, reached out to Glenn Russell, the head of the county planning department, to see what options were on the table. Last Thursday, upon hearing that news, rd District Supervisor Doreen Farr — who, like many of her constituents, vehemently opposes the tribe’s ongoing attempt through the federal Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to annex the 1,400-acre Camp  property into its Santa Ynez Valley reservation — sent a letter to the Chumash, stating that she was “pleased” to hear they had contacted Russell and explaining that she had directed County CEO Chandra Wallar to attend that meeting, as well, “to assist the Tribe and answer any questions Mr. Cohen may have about the County’s entitlement process.” Cohen confirmed that outreach but did not seem overly optimistic about the opportunity, explaining that he was simply following the direction given by the board. In an email to The Santa Barbara Independent, Cohen said he is “not sure what realistic options exist” but that it was “still worth a staff meeting.” The board’s decision came after dozens of residents spoke out against an official government-to-government dialogue, as many fear that would make it easier for the tribe to annex Camp  as well as future properties through the federal fee-to-trust transfer program. Those fears were compounded this week when it was discovered that, as part of the Camp  application, the BIA had approved the tribe’s designation of 11,500 acres of Santa Ynez Valley land as their “tribal consolidation area,” or TCA. That move, which was based on historic records of what was once considered Chumash country, does not implictly mean that the tribe intends to take over an area that critics estimate is the size of the cities of Goleta and Carpinteria combined. But it is seen as a strategic way of making it easier to annex Camp ,

FALSE FURY: Sam Cohen, the Chumash band’s government affairs officer, has refuted worries that the tribe will attempt a development bait-and-switch should it successfully annex the 1,400acre Camp 4 property.

which is technically an “off-reservation” property, meaning that the BIA is supposed to take a more critical look at such a proposal. Though making Camp  part of the Chumash tribe’s TCA doesn’t mean that it’s suddenly an “onreservation” annexation — it’s easier for tribes to take over lands already surrounded by or adjacent to a tribal reservation — it presumably makes the BIA look more favorably on the request. Cohen has also pointed out that Camp  is a mere 1.6 miles from the existing 127-acre reservation, not very far away, at least in the eyes of the feds. Another lingering question for many in the valley is that if Camp  is annexed and developed into the 143 homes that the tribe keeps promising to house its members, what might happen to the existing residential part of the reservation, which surrounds the Chumash Casino Resort along Highway ? Might that become a new resort development once all the housing is moved to Camp ? Cohen says that’s a hollow worry, pledging that “all current land assignments on the existing Santa Ynez Indian Reservation shall continue to be maintained unchanged.” He explained that the reservation lands are “highly constrained due to a variety of physical, social, and economic factors,” most notably that most of the property is in a floodplain that’s susceptible to flooding and drainage problems. Only about 26 acres, or 18 percent of the reservation, has residential capacity, Cohen explained, and another 16 acres, or 11 percent, has economic development possibilities. The remaining 99 acres, or 71 percent of the reservation, is consumed by creek corridors and steep slopes, which Cohen said would be “difficult to impossible to develop.” The usable size totals about 50 acres, said Cohen, most of which is already developed. He further explained that of the 136 tribal members and roughly 1,300 lineal descendants, only 17 percent have housing on tribal lands, hence the tribe’s desire to develop Camp .

Jamming the Revolving Door County Considers ‘Outside the Box’ Approach to Jail Recidivism




ith Santa Barbara’s jail overcrowded and understaffed — a situation that a slated North County jail may alleviate but won’t remove altogether, especially with prison realignment shifting offenders to county jails — the county is looking for new methods of reducing recidivism. For that reason, County CEO Chandra Wallar has proposed to the supervisors a new model for funding services aimed at criminal offenders. Dubbed the Pay for Success model, some county and state governments have begun experimenting with a social-entrepreneurship style of addressing service gaps. Under this arrangement, private parties loan governments money to kick-start programs, and if those programs are successful, the investor receives a return on the investment. If the program fails, it is the investor who loses out, not taxpayers. Rick Roney, a private citizen who has collaborated with Santa Barbara County for years on addressing recidivism, briefed the supervisors on Pay for Success Partnerships this Tuesday. The one fully functional example right now is run out of Rikers Island jail in New York. Goldman Sachs loaned the New York City Department of Corrections $9.6 million to provide counseling and therapy for teenagers. If the program reduces recidivism by 10 percent, Goldman Sachs will break even. The investment bank will make a maximum profit of $2.1 million if the recidivism reduction reaches 20 percent. The net savings to New York City would be an estimated $20.5 million. New York pays Goldman through an intermediary — MDRC, a nonprofit education and policy research organization — that also verifies the numbers. Through Roney’s legwork, Santa Barbara has already secured an offer by MDRC to provide technical assistance in assessing the county’s corrections infrastructure. Roney also acquired grant money to hire Jessica McLernon, a Santa Barbara resident who, in a previous job as New York City’s director of workforce development, rubbed elbows with several of the key players in the Rikers Island program. Roney is hoping that MDRC can help answer some of his questions, which were also shared by some of the supervisors. How is success best measured? How much overhead — for instance, for lawyers and gobetweens — would a Pay for Sucess arrangement cost? Supervisor Janet Wolf asked how the county would save money given that it is so deluged with jail costs. She even thanked Andy Caldwell, the president of COLAB, for articulating the question first. Because of overcrowding, an average of 1,370 inmates have been released early from County Jail annually for the past five years. Even if the county cut into that number, they wondered, would any money be saved? Roney said there would obviously be a social benefit, but study needs to be done on where the county might find savings.

UNSTOPPABLE FORCE: Rick Roney is urging the county to consider an experimental approach to fund recidivism-reducing services.

Part of the difficulty in doing so is that information is so sparse. The Sheriff ’s Office cannot even provide accurate recidivism rates. A study found that inmates receiving reentry services in the county had a 37 percent lower recidivism rate than a control group. Because Santa Barbara County has been so willing to test intervention and reentry programs such as the Day Reporting Center, the organizers of an initiative funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts and the MacArthur Foundation have identified it as one of three pilot markets. Called the Results First initiative, the project provides cost-benefit analyses of options available to criminal justice systems. Since introducing a similar approach in the 1990s, Washington state has saved $1.3 billion per two-year cycle. In a Who’s on First?–like routine, supervisors Peter Adam and Wolf expressed reservations about approving any action, saying that they wanted to hear real dollar amounts before weighing in. Wallar and Roney repeatedly explained that completing the Results First analysis is necessary to ascertain such information. Part of the confusion resulted in the fact that the staff report had been altered after the supervisors received their copies. The light bulb first went on for Adam. After securing an agreement that the debt advisory committee would review the Results First findings, Wolf relented, as well, and the board voted 5-0 to move forward. First District Supervisor Salud Carbajal said,“We don’t want to kick a gift horse in the mouth.” Supervisor Steve Lavagnino said the Pay for Success model “is definitely outside the box.” “I like it,” said the th District supervisor, “because nobody gets paid if there aren’t results.” Roney agreed, telling The Santa Barbara Independent, “The model we’ve used as a government is we don’t pay for success — we pay for service. Whether we get really good service or really terrible service, we don’t really know. Or we do know, but we don’t have a measurement.” A former Silicon Valley executive, Roney said that one of the lessons he learned from the private sector is that incentives work. “People produce better when they are incentivized,” he said.

Last Dog Standing


nonissue now roiling the local waters involves the pseudo new logo for the entity that until last week was known as the Conference & Visitors Bureau and Film Commission, which purports to depict the actual real-life St. Barbara, the namesake of our city and county. Much froth and fulmination has greeted the new logo — particularly on the Santa Barbara View website, whose cranky, curmudgeonly habitués seem disproportionately inclined to wake up with their underwear in a crisp, starchy bundle. No less a personage than Santa Barbara City Councilmember Dale Francisco — the council’s reigning conservative in chief now rumored to be contemplating a run against Lois Capps for Congress in 2014 — weighed in on the matter. So, too, did first-time city council candidates Jason Nelson and Lesley Wiscomb. The uproar started shortly after the Conference & Visitors Bureau and Film Commission — which spends gobs of money (much of it public in origin) every year exhorting people from out of town to visit Santa Barbara, spend lavishly, and then go home — hosted a coming-out party for its new streamlined name, Visit Santa Barbara, which indeed is both easier to remember and to say. Accompanying the new name was a new logo, which depicted a magenta-ish sketch of what appeared to be a mermaid figure, hips and breasts being suggested but not shown. Stylistically, it calls to mind the vaguely paganistic New Agey women’s self-empowerment book

covers that were popular in the 1980s. Others

have complained the logo looks like something you’d see stenciled on a Starbucks coffee cup. Or as one prominent art critic asked in response to the new design, “How do you tell someone they have an ugly baby?” The uproar arose only because the press release issued by Visit Santa Barbara stated that the mermaid figure “now incorporates” the story of St. Barbara, who they erroneously claimed, “stood watch over Santa Barbara shores and was known as a protector of ships.”All this, of course, qualifies as a classic Santa Barbara tempest in a teapot. But myths matter, especially when they involve religion and saints after whom towns are named. If you’re going to exploit them for commercial purpose, you’d best be precise. Whether Saint Barbara was real or conjured remains the subject of intense debate within ecclesiastical circles, but back in the day, she was immensely and intensely popular. St. Barbara was the go-to saint to whom you prayed when imminent doom was breathing down your neck and closure was not something you could reasonably expect to achieve. According to lore, Barbara was an exceptionally hot babe who lived in Syria about 1,900 years ago and whose father locked her up in a tower when he was away on frequent business trips. During one such absence, Barbara converted to Christianity, which she signified by having a third window (denoting the Holy Trinity) installed in the tower, then undergoing a remodel. Upon

his return, Barbara’s father freaked, Christianity being terminally out of favor with the Roman authorities upon whose good graces his business depended. Barbara’s father resolved the matter by dragging his daughter up the nearest hillside and either chopping her head off or bashing her brains in. Either way, not pretty. God, at that point, got mad and zapped dad with a lightning bolt, rendering his body a steaming pile of ashes. Because of this, Barbara is considered the patron saint of architects, artillerymen, and those who maintained the gunpowder supplies for military ships. Over the centuries, artists have taken some liberties with St. Barbara, but almost always, she is shown with a three-windowed tower in the background. But until now, she has never been depicted with a fishy mermaid tail. The folks at Visit Santa Barbara have sought to explain away the hubbub, stating that the image was never meant to be taken “literally,” adding that it was meant somehow to express “the spirit” of St. Barbara. And the new image, they pointed out, is only a slight modification of a similar image that has been used without fuss for eight years. True enough. But for those previous eight years, they had the good sense not to suggest any connection — literal or figurative — with the martyred saint. Council candidates Wiscomb and Nelson have sought to seize the day, questioning just how much city money was spent on the logo redesign — less than $10,000, we are told. Like-

wise, they’ve demanded to know why more of that money is not spent banging the tourist gong on behalf of the Sunday arts and craft show that for the past 50 years has been taking place along Cabrillo Boulevard. Pretty boring, right? But Francisco, as always, can be counted on to provide the unexpected wrinkle. In his brief note to the View, he observed the story of St. Barbara was no “barrel of laughs” and expressed confusion as to how it connects “with anything that would attract people to Santa Barbara as it is today.” Like many, Francisco said the logo looked more like a mermaid, and then tossed a lit-andloaded rhetorical Molotov cocktail by adding, “Historically, mermaids were demonic, but that association has been largely lost.” Demonic mermaids? Here in Santa Barbara? Who knew? Are mermaids “demonic” because they’re vaguely related to sirens, the mythological beauties who lured sailors to their deaths? Maybe, but it turns out mermaids are equally related to manatees, perhaps the least demonic creature found in any ocean. Or is it because they’re kind of sexy if you find tuna-fish tartare a turn-on? Perhaps Francisco was thinking of Save the Mermaids, the group of eco-minded activists in miniskirts who successfully lobbied City Hall to enact a plastic-bag ban despite Dale’s all-encompassing skepticism over anything he can — and often does — belittle as “well-intentioned.” In that case, the mermaids, thankfully, prevailed. But then, they had the good sense to leave St. Barbara out — Nick Welsh of it.

Section 8 Nightmare


n the Thursday before the Summer Solstice parade, I woke from a nap and saw to my horror that the next-door apartment building was completely engulfed in flames. After my mother and I scrambled out of our Section  housing, and as our belongings, security, and lives went up in fire and smoke, a fireman asked if we needed emergency services. In shock, we told him yes, and so began my Alice in Wonderland experience with “emergency housing services.” The Red Cross secured emergency housing for the weekend and gave us a $95 debit card for food, but I wondered, what happens Monday? I am my mother’s caregiver; she is elderly, disabled, and has diabetes, a heart condition, and a colostomy bag that I change biweekly. Her income consists of SSI, and mine of unemployment and part-time work as her in-home supportive services caregiver. The city’s Housing Authority (HACSB) — which works with Community Housing Corp., the owner of our building — had a partner nonprofit counseling agency meet with us, but the counselor said it could take from a couple of months to a couple of years to place us. We were sent to to look for apartments or homes. Well, no landlord accepts Section 8 in Santa Barbara. Those very few who do are already full. Peoples’ Self-Help Housing, which also partners with HACSB, had a one- to three-year waiting list. This nonprofit receives grant monies, yet it charges $20 per application and runs credit checks on low-income people. It had no emergency housing-assistance services for my mother and me, even though it and HACSB have a joint low-income property in which they could’ve housed us. When I contacted the Red Cross for help, they sent us to Casa Esperanza for housing services, but Casa also has a waiting list. So does Salvation Army’s Hospitality House, and usually these services are for single adults, not for an adult male who is the caregiver for his disabled and senior-citizen mother. Luckily, with the help of my brother and friends, we found a place in Lompoc. None of the housing services in Santa Barbara have “Emergency Housing” programs at all. What they have are outdated lists, waiting lists, and time-consuming procedures and protocols. Just as The Santa Barbara Independent reported that Lompoc Housing and Community Development is under investigation [Cover Story,“Stupid, Inept, or Corrupt?” 2/9/12,], I think the feds would do well to audit all nonprofit agen cies that also work with the county and other interlock-

ing agencies funded by federal grants. The services these grant monies are supposed to be funding aren’t being given to the communities that need them. Where is this money going? And while this impropriety is ongoing, people remain homeless and destitute, and the social services arena continues to be infested with corruption. This is why the homeless, low-income, and poverty-stricken communities of Santa Barbara never seem to get better. We’re not allowed to. We are being victimized by the very agencies receiving federal grants to help us.

“You Are The Gift”

‘Party To’ U



ollowing Tyler Hayden’s news article “UCSB Ranked # Party School in Country” [8/6/13, inde], several of my friends and I responded to The Princeton Review as follows: We firmly believe this designation to be a disservice to our students, alumni, and faculty. We should be number one. We are surrounded by ocean and beach on three sides; our campus more closely resembles a five-star resort than the No.  research university in the world (Leiden, 2013). So do we party? Absolutely! However, to us, “party” does not always consist of keg stands and burning couches. Partying can mean celebratory dance steps after acing an exam or a toast with friends over a glass of carrot juice from the Isla Vista Co-op. You should’ve named us the “party to” school. We are party to having five professors with Nobel prizes teaching and inspiring students on our campus. We are party to being one of the top-10 “coolest schools” in the nation as ranked by Sierra Magazine in 2013. We are party to being a public university with 46.8 percent of our classes housing 20 students or fewer. We are party to attending the 35th top university in the world (Times Higher Education, 2012). So do we party? Hell yes we do. We party because we are an institution full of high achievers, and there’s always something to celebrate about at UCSB. — Charlotte A. Rushforth, UCSB, Class of 2014

Roger C. Wood, emeritus professor of Computer Science and Electrical and Computer Engineering at UC Santa Barbara, died peacefully on July th in his home in Santa Barbara, surrounded by his family. He was  and had endured Lewy-body disease with grace and dignity for two years. Professor Wood was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on January , . He studied applied mathematics and was in the Air Force ROTC at the University of Minnesota, where he met Ann Elizabeth Wilson on a blind double date arranged by a Sigma Chi fraternity brother. They married on August ,  and took their first of many camping trips together on their cross-country drive to their first home in San Diego, California. With the end of the Korean War, Roger’s ROTC commitment ended and he began his career in analog computation at Ryan Aeronautical Company working on flight simulation and controls for the X and other innovative aircraft. During a brief return to Minnesota to complete his masters degree, Roger was drafted and served six months in the US Army. Roger then returned to San Diego and Ryan Aeronautical Company where he wrote his monograph “Principles of Analog Computation” with George Smith. He subsequently moved to Systems Development Corporation in Santa Monica. While continuing to work full time, he studied communications and analog, digital, and hybrid computing technologies at the University of California, Los Angeles, earning his PhD in Electrical Engineering in . Moving to Santa Barbara in , he joined the then Electrical Engineering Department at the University of California, Santa Barbara. Roger played an instrumental role in developing the undergraduate engineering curriculum. He was an exceptional teacher, a powerful advocate for students, and an innovative educator, creating some of the first courses in engineering writing and professional ethics. His passion for teaching resulted in numerous honors, including the Mortar Board Professor of the Year Award, the UCSB Academic Senate Distinguished Teaching Award, and the UCSB Affiliates Professor of the Year Award. Roger continued to serve student educational needs as Associate Dean for Student Affairs until his retirement in , and taught one course a year until . Roger was an avid sportsman, playing basketball and floor hockey until his early s and was known for his scrappy defense and bony elbows. He took great 20


pride in being inducted into the UCSB Intramural Hall of Fame for his longstanding participation with the Jolly Rogers and support of the program. Roger also loved the outdoors, spending several weeks every summer in the mountains of Yosemite. Days were spent with a pipe, a fishing pole, and a Louis L’Amour novel and nights with a guitar, red wine, and a campfire. Most importantly, Roger was devoted to his wife, partner, and best friend of nearly  years and their family. He delighted in her Santa Barbara Choral Society concerts and his children’s and grandchildren’s sporting and performance events. He had a story or a pun for every occasion, and maintained a genuinely sunny outlook even through adversity. Roger’s family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the caregiving team led by Jeremy Bordofsky. He is pre-deceased by his parents, Carl E. and Shirley M. (Chase) Wood, and his sister Marcy Kaltenbach. He is survived by his wife, Ann, a well-known retired early-childhood educator, four children, twelve grandchildren, and one great-grandchild (expected): Jenny (and Edward) Hawkes of Santa Maria, CA (Michael, Stuart (and Leah), Erin, Samuel, Patrick, and Andrew), Professor David Wood (and Jane Doughty) of Madison, WI (Alexander and Zachary Wood-Doughty), Dr. John (and Dr. Ruth) Wood of South Pasadena, CA (Lyle, James, and Marion), and James (and Jen) Wood of Mt.

Merci! What a Woman!

was crusty as a slice of fresh Louisiana ranch bread, politically savvy as an in-crowd D.C. wife, model-beautiful as a young woman, and rich, and, if the cards had fallen exactly right, she just might have been married to a vice president of the United States who would have become president. Mercedes Eichholz, who died here last week at 96, mingled with Washington New Deal– era movers and shakers back in the Franklin Roosevelt and Harry Truman days, came to Santa Barbara and spread her money around to nonprofits and the Museum of Art. She was a philanthropist who knew everyone. If Generosity was her middle name, Feisty was her first and Spunky her last. If she insulted you, it meant she liked you or at least respected you. Eichholz did not suffer fools gladly and was free with her penetrating views on events here and beyond. Her opinions came with a flash of her blue eyes, but her words usually came softly and with the grace of her Southern upbringing. Still, her opinions often had very sharp elbows. Her walls were lined with enough art to start a museum. As a young girl, she grew up on a Louisiana cotton plantation during the Depression. She once told me of her French great-grandfather, who owned a shipping agency in New Orleans. During the Civil War,“The Yankees stole a barge load of cattle,” she told me. “He went to get it

back, and they threw him in jail. But he escaped.” At 22, she married a young, Yale-trained lawyer, C. Girard Davidson, and they headed to D.C., where he eventually became assistant secretary of the interior. “Washington was a very small place in the 1940s,” she recalled. She was close to the vortex of power in Washing-

ton, D.C., for four decades and, after divorcing Davidson, was the wife of Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas for 10 years. She worked for Congressmember Helen Gahagan Douglas, who in 1950 was defeated for the Senate by Richard Nixon and his smear campaign. Before their marriage, President Roosevelt had named Douglas to the Supreme Court in 1939 and in 1944 favored him as a running mate, replacing Vice President Henry Wallace. In No Ordinary Time, author Doris Kearns Goodwin tells how FDR’s brain trust vetoed Wallace, considering him “too intellectual, too liberal, too idealistic, and too impractical.” Instead of Douglas, an obscure Missouri senator, Harry Truman, got the nod and became vice president when Roosevelt was reelected to a fourth term. When FDR died in April 1945, Truman found himself president. Douglas, a mercurial, charismatic character, stayed on the court, and he and Eichholz were married in 1954, having missed their date with presidential destiny by a few years. “In my opinion, she was the best thing that ever happened to Bill, and the whole country owes her a debt of gratitude because her years with Bill were also his best years of service on the court and the period of his greatest opinions,” wrote Yale law professor Charles Reich, formerly a law clerk for Justice Hugo Black. As for Douglas, “I always thought he had a genius mind,” but he was a difficult person to

During one chat at her downtown home, she showed me a National Geographic magazine story about her 7,000-mile station-wagon trip in 1957 with Douglas through the rutted roads of the Middle East, from Karachi to Istanbul. Merci was the mechanic. There are photos of the young blonde in a blue dress, under the car tinkering while Douglas snapped photos. A celebration of her life will be announced later.

off funds for noncredit community college adult ed classes like cooking, woodworking, and jewelry making, Santa Barbara City College has decided to split off such “enrichment” classes and charge fees. The new umbrella Center for Lifelong Learning (CLL) held an open house Saturday at the Wake Center, with a huge turnout and speeches by City College President Lori Gaskin, Assemblymember Das Williams, Santa Barbara Mayor Helene Schneider, Goleta Mayor Roger Aceves, and CLL Executive Director Andy Harper. Tuition starts at $5 per class hour but is much higher in some cases, which has some worried that it will be unaffordable. This fall, 500 classes are available. — Barney Brantingham

Lose the love handles.




by Shannon Kelley J Photos by Paul Wellman

eople say, ‘Are you a foodie?’” says Sherry Villanueva, principal of the Anacapa Project, “and I’m really not.” I’m sitting with Villanueva at The Lark’s communal table in the early afternoon two days after the by-any-account astoundingly successful concomitant grand openings of The Lark restaurant and Les Marchands wine bar/retail shop, and I’m having a hard time believing her. After all, the meal I had on opening night is still haunting my palate. (Can we talk about the olives? Deep fried, goat-cheese stuffed, served with chorizo aioli. And the duck liver mousse; dear god, the duck liver mousse …) I raise an eyebrow. “I mean, I love good food,” she continues,“but the thing I feel passionate about is the exchange that people have over food — the connection people have with each other, the sharing of holidays and celebrations and life. For me, it’s that part of it.” And that part of it — restaurant as gathering place and Villanueva’s passion around that idea — has everything to do with how The Lark came into being. “I kept telling him,” she says, referring to the investor/ developer behind the project, Brian Kelly, a man as elusive as his footprint is becoming ubiquitous,“in the center of this development, you need a restaurant. You need a place for people to gather and share food — a restaurant has that ability, unlike a lot of businesses, to really shift a neighborhood because of the communal aspect of what happens in

a restaurant. I kept telling him, you need to create this place that has those feelings and is rooted in the history of the neighborhood, a little bit gritty but also a little bit refined.” What she’s talking about is the 10,000-square-foot chunk of prime Funk Zone real estate on East Yanonali Street, bordered by Helena Avenue and Anacapa Street, that today is home to no fewer than nine businesses (and responsible for more than 100 jobs). Flanking Yanonali are Figueroa Moun-

tain Brewery, Cutler’s Artisan Spirits, Riverbench Winery, Guitar Bar, and another wine project called Area .. Then, in the building that once housed the Bay Café, there’s Avelina winery, run by Christian Garvin, who founded Oreana across the street; Villanueva’s take-away concept Lucky Penny; the wine shop/bar Les Marchands, run by two rising-star sommeliers; and The Lark, centerpiece of this ambitious undertaking — and currently, home to the hottest tables in town.

COMING TO THE TABLE: Just a couple of weeks in, the Lark restaurant has quickly become the Funk Zone’s center of gravity, and S.B.’s hottest ticket.

During the “months and months” of these conversations, which Villanueva places about two and a half years ago, she was working with Kelly as a consultant. Her background is in marketing: Most recently, she owned a company called Twist Worldwide, where she was on contract with Target for 14 years. Her job was to have ideas. “They referred to it as ‘ideation’— coming up with creative ideas for all aspects, product development concepts, strategic partnership concepts, marketing campaigns, whatever,” she says,“just sort of an ideas generator.” Once generated, she’d hand her ideas off to Target’s team, who’d put them into action. A mutual friend put Kelly and Villanueva in touch, and Kelly hired her to do the same sort of work for him. They took lots of walks around the property and neighborhood and brainstormed.“Well,” Kelly eventually said to her,“you have such a clear idea on what this is supposed to be, why don’t you just do it?” “Everybody thought I’d lost my mind,” says Villanueva. “Who, at 51 years old — at the time I guess I was 49 — but who in their right mind leaves a very comfortable career and goes into the restaurant business, and then to open three different restaurants simultaneously and build a building from scratch?” She asks that half-jokingly, but I get the distinct sense this was not the first time she’d asked herself this question and that it wasn’t always a joke.“So the first thing he and I discussed was that in order for a non-restaurateur like me to build a restaurant,” she says,“I needed to find a rock-star team.” CONT’D >>>

ASSEMBLING THE DREAM TEAM Walking into The Lark and Les Marchands — even just looking at the Lucky Penny — it’s impossible not to be struck by the design. Cool and urban, with repurposed pieces used to surprising effect, vintage touches and industrial details, the feel is current and comfortable. But convincing the designer, San Francisco restaurateur Doug Washington (Town Hall, Salt House) to come on board took a bit of tenacity on Villanueva’s part.

GETTING IT DONE: Sherry Villanueva and GM Dan Russo took bike rides around the Funk Zone prior to Russo signing on to the project. “She’s dangerous on a bike!” Russo said.


Her niece worked at Salt House, so Villanueva had been there a couple of times; when it came time to find a designer, she started there.“So she gave me a ring and asked if I wanted to do one in Santa Barbara,” recalls Washington.“And I said, not a hope in hell!” He was too busy, has three kids, and found Santa Barbara “impossible to get to.” A couple of weeks later, she convinced him to come down and take a peek. Washington came; he saw; again, he said no. “And then on the way to the airport, I started thinking, goddamn, that’s a beautiful building, and I started thinking of all of these amazing things you could do with that space. It’s the curse!” he says.“So I called her and go, okay, I’ll do it. I remember saying,‘We’re gonna do something really effing cool here.’”



—Sherry Villanueva, principal of the Anacapa Project

NO ONE UNDER 21 ADMITTED And eff if they did not do exactly that. Washington spent time walking “concentric circles” around the neighborhood. They had conversations that went on for hours about vibe. Nearly every piece has a story. The communal table at The Lark was milled from a tree felled in a lightning storm 50 years ago, which had been drying out in the forest outside of Portland, Oregon, ever since. (Fun fact: “Every other table in the dining room is made from the same tree,” says Villanueva.“You can line them all up and see the slab.”) There’s the penny-covered façade of Lucky Penny. (“[Washington] said, ‘Why don’t you cover it in pennies?’” says Villanueva.“I was like,‘That’s a great idea!’ and he immediately said,‘No, you cannot do that.’ And then I became obsessed.”) There are the light fixtures designed by Washington, the mercury-glass lampshades found in a Portland salvage shop, the old washbasins used as planters, the regionally made solid-steel bar tops. There’s The Lark sign, made of vintage movie-theater letters. There’s the antique train bell that hangs outside Lucky Penny, which alludes to the Pullman train for which The Lark was named. And then, of course, there’s the confessional. “I remember finding this 100-year-old church confessional from Lyon, France; a guy sent me a photo and said, are you interested? And I said yes!” says Washington. “And it fit within one inch into that one corner! Then I had to change the lights, add in power …. I think I really made the general contractor nuts on this job. I think he really wanted to kill me by the end.” (The contractor is likely not the last to be traumatized by the confessional. I, for example, went to Catholic school. And during a recent meal in this seat, I found myself confessing my sins to my server. Not that I have any.) 26

THE FOOD DUDE No matter how much restaurants are about community for Villanueva, killer food was also clearly rather key, so they interviewed and tasted with nearly 50 chefs. And while the food was obviously critical, Villanueva tells me the first thing she looked for in her new chef was humility. I chuckle, but she’s completely serious. “When you look at a guy like Jason, he’s an extraordinary chef; he’s very talented, really smart in the kitchen and as it relates to people, but at the end of the day, he’s just a nice guy that you want to hang out with,” says Villanueva.“He’s gentle; he commands respect because of his talent, his professionalism, and his expertise. He doesn’t need to be a bully.” Indeed, Executive Chef (of both the Lark and Lucky Penny) Jason Paluska, also of RN — which, in hindsight, looks a bit like an Anacapa Project incubator — is as downto-earth as they come. Two seconds into our interview, he’s pretending my voice recorder is his cell phone, until his own rings. “Is it weird if I take this?” he asks. It’s Wayne, the bread guy. Paluska confirms his order and then says, “I’ll be here. I get a day off in 2015. Oh, you got one off then, too? Let’s hang out, man!” Upon hanging up, he waxes poetic about Wayne, the bread guy: “He has the most insane bread program. When we first got here, we went to every bakery, scouting them out to find the most consistently awesome bread, and he does it. Baker’s Table in the Santa Ynez Valley — he hand-makes it every day and delivers it himself, every day. By far the most underrated, hardworking dude I’ve ever met.” (And the bread is epic. Equally versatile as a means for sopping up the broth Paluska’s mussels swim in and as a vehicle for that light-as-air yet rich-as-sin duck liver mousse — made, Paluska points out, with neighbor Ian Cutler’s bourbon.) When crafting the menu, Paluska says, “I stopped doing research [into other restaurants’ menus], because I was like, well, it’s kind of pointless for me to come down here and just try to copy menus; that’s not the way a chef should think. He should look inward and see what comes out. So Nick [Flores, the executive sous/pastry chef] and I started putting flavors together that we liked. There’s a lot of thought in each individual component.” Sophisticated but thoroughly approachable, his menu is seasonally and locally inspired and constantly evolving. Plates are

meant for sharing, which is nice, because you will want to try everything. From the deviled eggs with pancetta and jalapeño to the caramelized cauliflower gratin with Gruyère and Aleppo pepper to the slow-cooked pork shank with bacon-braised chard and anchohoney cornbread, each dish is an experience. And his bench in the kitchen is deep — and motivated. “There [are] kids in there cooking that are just coming so far and in such a short amount of time, and they’re responding so well to the standards of excellence that we’re trying to provide,” says Paluska.“They want to be a part of something that’s challenging and creative.”

THE LURE OF BABYLON For somms Railsback and McClintic, the allure of Santa Barbara is obvious: This is wine country, and they’ve filled a glaring void. But for GM Russo and Chef Paluska (“worldclass pros,” Villanueva says, every chance she gets), deciding to move to Santa Barbara — not known as a culinary destination in the way cities like Chicago and San Francisco are — is worth understanding. “I didn’t know anything about Santa Barbara,” says Russo, but he respected Villanueva’s vision and was jazzed about working again with Paluska and Flores.“In this business, very rarely do you get a chance to start something from scratch and bring really great people in, and that’s what we’ve done. Sherry, Jason, Nick, the wine guys — it’s a really great group of people, and that’s huge.” People came first for Paluska, too.“Any work environment, you connect with certain people; others are just people you work with,” he says.“But the people you connect with, you want to stay connected with — those people are here for me. Every day, I’m walking into almost a second home with good people who know me, and I know them — all too well.” And for a Texas kid who grew up outside and fishing, the Santa Barbara lifestyle proved impossible to refuse.“This is like the most ideal place you could land on a map. I’ve wanted this environment my whole life,” Paluska says.“I just never knew how to get to it.” Also: “The Mexican food here is fantastic.” And Santa Barbara is equally smitten: The Lark has been booked solid for weeks — but that hasn’t stopped people from showing up and waiting for a spot at the bar or the communal table. Next door, Les Marchands is rapidly becoming the go-to spot for S.B.’s biggest oenophiles, who gathered a couple

COVER STORY of weeks ago on-site for the Santa Barbara County Wine Futures tasting. “We keep seeing the faces coming in over and over again already,” says McClintic, “which is important to us.”

KEEP IT FUNKY There’s no denying the impact this project will have — is already having — on the Funk Zone. (Just try to find a parking space.) Longtime area business owner Dana Walters, whose coffee-bar–cum–bar-bar Reds has been around for 12 years and sits diagonally across the street from the development, has had a front-row seat for all the changes those years have brought to her neighborhood. There have been many, and they’ve gained speed in recent years. But the trajectory was put in motion a long time ago.“When I first rented the place here, everyone was talking about Levy’s La Entrada project,” Walters says of the extremely contentious building proposal that ultimately landed developer Bill Levy in bankruptcy — a reimagined version of which was just approved by the city’s Historic Landmarks Commission last week. The area has long

sible development so that it’s in keeping with the vibe and the character of the neighborhood. He didn’t want to change it, just really enhance it.” Indeed, the Funk Zone itself is what inspired so many of the decisions along the way, and the neighborhood played no small part in getting some of that world-class talent to sign on.“If someone would have taken me to State Street — don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with State Street — but if someone said they were doing a restaurant there, I probably would have said no,” says Russo, who took a bicycle tour of the Funk Zone with Villanueva while considering his involvement.“I just didn’t feel the way about that area as I do here, with the old surf shops and the artists.” Washington had a similar experience. “I always thought of Santa Barbara as very white and very wealthy, and literally every time I came down, I met more and more cool people — really amazing, interesting, fun people,” he says. “There’s a lot of quirkiness down there that I like.” While rents are an obvious concern for anyone who lives or does business in the area, Walters among them, overall, the Funk Zone

had developers’ mouths watering. And those drooling developers have long been met with raised hackles. (And, in Levy’s case, anyway, a major dose of schadenfreude when big plans go bust.) Community activist Laura Inks frames the tension this way: “I come from the perspective of looking out for the sustainability of artists, so I see that while the project is really great for the neighborhood — it’s great to have a restaurant down there — I’m afraid what it will do now for the rents for the artists.” Villanueva gets it; that’s why she’s made staying true to the neighborhood’s integrity such a focus. “Change is always hard and rightly so,” says Villanueva. “Like any development, it’s hard because properties are improved, property values go up, rents go up, and that makes it challenging …. It’s just one of those tough things about development, about growth. You look at the Funk Zone: It’s a block away from the beach, a block away from State Street; it’s just not gonna stay a dilapidated industrial zone forever. I just feel grateful about the people who have been coming in to open businesses or develop properties who’ve been committed to keeping as much of that artistic approach, that authenticity and funkiness, so that the character stays in the neighborhood while the buildings are being improved. And that’s what we really tried to do here. [Kelly] is very committed to respon-

veteran is happy about her new neighbors. Whereas for a long time, Reds stood alone as a “destination bar,” now it’s part of a greater “destination area,” Walters says. The foot traffic’s been good (“Sundays used to be my slowest day; now they’re huge”), and she likes that the new crowd is a bit older. “One thing I’ve been hearing a lot is people saying it reminds them of how State Street used to be 20 or so years ago. It’s nice that it’s all mom-and-pops right now; hopefully we can stay that way,” she says.“And they seem to be really friendly and neighborly — it’s like that neighbor you borrow a cup of sugar from! There’s just some good energy going on; people are having a good time.” So much so, says Villanueva,“I’m getting emails at one in the morning from servers saying,‘I’m so grateful to be a part of this team.’ There’s nothing more rewarding than that.”

History of Burlesque From the latter half of the 1800s to the first half of the 1900s, a common form of entertainment in the U.S. was burlesque shows, which incorporated musical-theater parody, bawdy comedy, and exotic dances. By the 1930s, striptease had become the main act in the variety shows, launching the careers of Gypsy Rose Lee and Blaze Starr. By the 1950s, the burlesque era was over, but what happened to those who had made a career from it? Filmmaker/ author Leslie Zemeckis decided to find out. In her recently released book Behind the Burly Q, Zemeckis documents the history of burlesque using stories from the original stars — comedians, singers, variety acts, and strippers — of the stage shows. Zemeckis will give a talk and sign books Thursday, September 5, 7 p.m. at Granada Bookstore, 1224 State St. Call 845-1818 or visit — Michelle Drown

ot knowing Latin, Greek, or even Old English or Ancient French, one sometimes wonders why plant names have been awarded to certain groups. In this case, these lost languages were used to describe some widespread plant species that are covered with fine hairs. The family name is boraginaceae, and the genus name, Borago, which defines the family, also reflects this characteristic. There is another, even easier-to-see feature of most of the borage group. The flower stalks emerge as tightly curled “fiddle heads” not unlike fern fronds. As in any family, there are the stars and the black sheep. Across the wildlands of California, a couple of weedy species have spread rampantly in disturbed soil (read agriculture). The yellow-flowering fiddleheads (Amsinckia species) carpet many valleys and the slopes of the foothills. One widespread species, A. menziesii, was used by the Chumash, who collected and processed the abundant seeds. A couple of other native species may not form large colonies, but they do appear in spring as one of the highlights of the wildflower display. Phacelia was formerly separated into another family, but the distinctive coiled inflorescences are easy to spot. Their flowers in many shades of blue are much showier than some of their “cousins” whose tiny flowers are less than a quarter of an inch across. Phacelia flowers may be up to an inch across, and most of them bloom abundantly for quite a presentation. Look for them along the trails that climb into the chaparral along creek courses. As annuals, if you want to include them in the garden, you will have to sow from seed in fall or earliest spring.



MOP TOP: The Borago genus has some pretty, aromatic, and droughttolerant varieties.

In the garden, some pretty and even aromatic species are good subjects for the drought-tolerant garden. Borage (Borago officinalis) is usually an annual but reseeds itself readily, so once it is in the garden, it will continue to pop up year after year. Although it is covered with fine hairs and may not look very appetizing, borage leaves can be used for tea. Its flavor is somewhat reminiscent of cucumber and is reputed to give one a boost after a hard day. The star-like blue flowers can be added to glasses of iced tea as a delicious and delightful garnish. Their flavor is also reminiscent of cucumber and can be used to replace that vegetable in salads or cold soups, as well. A very hardy shrub that rewards the viewer with masses of huge flower spikes in spring is Echium fastuosum. Most selections are deep to sky blue, but magenta and paler pink hues may also appear. The rest of the year (after those flower spikes have been pruned off ), the gray-green leaves clothe a sturdy mound to anchor the Mediterraneanstyled landscape. Perhaps my favorite in this family is heliotrope (Heliotropium arborescens). It is one of the most seductively fragrant perennials (maybe because its fragrance seems to be a cross between candy and flowers). It has dark green, crinkly foliage and dense clusters of tiny deep purple flowers, although there is a white form called Alba. It is a little sensitive to bad drainage and cold, so if it doesn’t do well in your garden, try it in a pot and move it around until you find its comfort zone. Just one whiff as you walk by will seduce you — Virginia Hayes forever.

Trashing Junior High


hen my son entered junior high, his class read the Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I thought it a peculiar choice for 12-year-olds — dense, antiquated prose, and a macabre plot. But his teacher chuckled when I asked about it. If I didn’t see the relevance of having 7th graders read a book about a conflicted, two-faced beast with serious impulse-control issues, then it had obviously been a long time since I’d walked the halls of a junior high. I haven’t forgotten, though. In some ways, I think we never really leave junior high; some uncomfortable part of us is cursed to forever remain in that unholy purgatory between the safety of childhood and the autonomy of adulthood, that pimply, fussy No Man’s Valley between carefree and confident. “There will always be things that warp us back,” says my friend Teddy Steinkellner, 23. “I was dumped in a trash can in 7th grade by a bunch of guys in my PE class. It wasn’t personal; I think they just wanted to pick the shrimpiest guy in class and do something for their own pleasure. I didn’t tell my parents about that.” Instead, he wrote a book about it. Trash Can Days: A Middle School Saga, published last week by Disney Hyperion, is a young-adult novel loosely based on Teddy’s own years at Santa Barbara Junior High. “I was a bit like my character Jake in the book,” he says: “Sheltered, introverted, awkward, and certainly by Starshine prepubescent.” Through traditional narration, homeroom announcements, Facebook posts, and text messages, the book email: traces the intersecting lives of Jake; his much-cooler, less-privileged best friend; Jake’s popular older sister; and the extreme-nerd girl who pines for Jake. The story shies away from no middle-school misery: developmental differences, hurtful gossip, emerging sexuality, issues of class — even gang pressures. “I wrote a book about junior high because I don’t have perspective on any other part of life yet,” he jokes. He wrote it over three summers while studying at Stanford. “It feels like this hugely serious and dramatic and yet also goofy and hilarious part of people’s lives that we kind of put away in a box — and I wanted to force people to look at it again.” Since Teddy willingly (read: masochistically) dove back into a moment that the rest of us would just as soon forget, I asked if he had helpful insight for kids who are entering junior high this month, and the parents of those kids. He said he learned some liberating things by putting himself in the shoes of the disparate characters in his book. “Nobody thinks junior high was hard for the bullies and the popular kids,” he says —“but they’re wrong. Junior high is a crucible for everyone. It’s a harrowing experience for all involved: everyone’s different heights and weights, everyone arbitrarily starts hating their parents all of a sudden. It’s a sadistic social experiment to take people at their most vulnerable, irritable, and frankly weird years and just put those people together.” Here — according to Teddy — is how you survive:


() “My number one piece of advice for kids is unquestionably to not bring a rolling backpack to school, because people will just kick it.” () “Be yourself, not for all the cheesy reasons that you should be yourself, but because if you try to be somebody else, you will fail. Try to accept who you are and wait it out — because you have no choice at that point in time.” () “Try to convince yourself that you’re cool every day even if you’re positive that you’re not — and you probably aren’t.” If those fail, hang tough. You can always grow up and write a book about it. Starshine Roshell is the author of Wife on the Edge. august 29, 2013

UCSB Women’s Volleyball Starts Season with New Coach and the NCAA in Their Sights


n volleyball parlance, it won’t be a bad thing if UCSB’s women get off to a bumpy start in their first match under new head coach Nicole Lantagne Welch. The Gauchos will face the high-powered attack of No. -ranked Stanford on Friday, August 30, and their ability to bump the ball — the basic skill of playing a hard-hit ball off the forearms — will be a key to their survival. “We’re not going to be as tall as most of our opponents,” Lantagne Welch said.“Our team will be exciting to watch because they are fighters. They are going to be all over the floor, getting scrappy and finding a way.” The match at the Thunderdome has an unusual starting time of noon, Friday, because the Gauchos will be traveling to Berkeley later in the day and begin playing in a tournament at Cal on Saturday. They will not return to their home court until the Big West Conference opener against Long Beach State on September 27. Lantagne Welch, a California native, came to UCSB after 12 years as the head coach at the University of Miami (FL). She succeeded the legendary Kathy Gregory, who started the UCSB program and coached it for 38 years before retiring last January. Gregory’s legacy included 27 appearances in the NCAA tournament, but only one in the last six years. Miami reached the NCAA five times under Lantagne Welch, including the last four. Schools like UCSB have faced lowered expectations in women’s sports because of football. The top 10 teams in the American Volleyball Coaches Association preseason poll all hail from major football conferences that reap TV money to pump into their programs: Texas, Penn State, Stanford, USC, Washington, Minnesota, Michigan, Oregon, Florida, and Nebraska. Hawai‘i, which has a football team but competes in the Big West in other sports, is ranked No. .Volleyball draws huge crowds on the island.“Having Hawai‘i in our conference is a great thing,” Lantagne Welch said.“They draw tremendous interest wherever they play.” The Rainbow Wahine was the unanimous No.  pick on the Big West coaches’ preseason poll, and UCSB came in sixth out of nine teams. That does not stop the Gauchos from setting high goals for themselves.“We want to get back into the NCAA tournament,” stated senior Leah Sully, a returning All–Big West hitter. “We want to go undefeated in the Thunderdome, and we want to win a preseason tournament.” Sully is a Gaucho co-captain along with setter Ali Santi, a junior, and defensive specialist Shauna Klein, a sophomore. The range of class levels is indicative of the team’s togetherness. Lantagne Welch said,“I believe our team chemistry is strong. Everybody is on the same page.” Besides emphasizing defense, the Gauchos will try to move the ball around on the attack.“A year ago, the outside hitter [Sully] was set a million times,” the coach said.“We need a lot more balance.” In actuality, Sully was called on to attack 1,798 times last year, the most in UCSB history. Katey Thompson, another senior, “gets after it every day and is the hardest hitter on the team,” Lantagne Welch said. Gregory’s last recruits include 6�4� Phoebe Grunt, the tallest Gaucho by several inches. Kristen Berlo, a San Marcos High standout who was recruited by UCSB for both volleyball and softball, will miss the fall season because of an injury. Two prominent players missing from the roster are Taylor Formico, an All-American as a first-year libero last year, and Jenna Wilson, a starting middle blocker.“We’re moving forward with those people who want to be here and want to play for UCSB,” Lantagne Welch said. Gregory was incensed that Wilson, a player that she


by John Zant

nurtured after finding her in Rancho Cucamonga, was apparently dismissed from the team because she wanted to be excused from the opening match to attend a wedding. The outspoken former coach called the decision “heartless,” but Sully said the team stood behind Lantagne Welch. “Our theme is commitment,” Sully said.“Ironically, the two positions that are most competitive in practice are middle blocker and libero.”

TEAM CHEMISTRY: The Gauchos hone their skills during a practice scrimmage, getting into top form for their game against last year’s Pac-12 champions, Stanford, Friday, August 30, at UCSB.

hand after Baker hit a home run on October 2, 1977. Burke, a popular player, was revealed to be gay after his short majorleague career, and he died in 1995 after contracting HIV. “It’s the better story,” said a Radiolab commentator, who also considered a high five by Louisville basketball player Derek Smith in 1978. “We’ll never really know how it started,” UCSB’s Sully said. “All I know is, the high five has been a constant for us.”

RAISING THE STAKES: “We want to get back in the NCAA tournament,” said senior Leah Sully (pictured), a returning All–Big West hitter. “We want to go undefeated in the Thunderdome, and we want to win a preseason tournament.”

Stanford’s presence in the Thunderdome on Friday will be fraught with pathos. The Cardinal returns all the starters from last year’s Pac- champions who went 30-4. They include senior Carly Wopat, an All-American middle blocker. Wopat’s twin sister, Samantha, who starred with her at Dos Pueblos High and was her teammate at Stanford, died by suicide in March 2012. Their parents, Ron and Kathy Wopat of Goleta, also have two sons. “It’s been a tough year and a half,” Ron said,“but we’re forging ahead with our family.” HIGH FIVES: Volleyball practices at UCSB have become

much quieter since the retirement of Gregory, one of the most energetically vocal coaches in any sport. But she has not been muffled. Her voice was heard on the radio last weekend, during an NPR program called Radiolab. The show attempted to pinpoint the origin of the “high five,” a ubiquitous gesture in sports for the last two decades. Gregory argued that women’s volleyball should get credit.“We did that back in the 1960s,” she declared. Volleyball players high-five each other not only in celebration but also to pick somebody up after a mistake. The hosts of the radio show decided that former Dodger outfielder Glenn Burke deserved to be recognized for inventing the high five. He greeted Dusty Baker with an upraised-

BIG SHOT: From the state, to the nation, to the hemisphere, Stamatia Scarvelis was unbeatable in high school and

junior (under age 20) shot put competitions this year. The 18-year-old phenom, with still a year to go at Dos Pueblos, completed her triple crown last week by winning the Pan American Junior Championship in Medellín, Colombia. Her golden mark was 50�8¾�, outdistancing Brazil’s Isabela Rodriguez da Silva by almost two feet.

WORLD CHAMPS: At the Junior World Water Polo Championships in Volos, Greece, a trio of Dos Pueblos graduates helped Team USA win its first women’s title since 2005. Kodi Hill (now at UCLA), Kiley Neushul (Stanford), and Tiera Schroeder (Cal), who accomplished a 67-game winning streak at DP, put together another streak with the national team. They knocked off Kazakhstan, Italy, New Zealand, Hungary, Greece, and Spain. Neushul scored three goals in the 9-7 victory over the Spanish women, the defending champions. NICE TRI: The bicycle course was challenging with twists and turns, but Britain’s Emma-Kate Lidbury said she “thoroughly enjoyed” her romp through the Santa Barbara Triathlon last Saturday. Under ideal conditions, Lidbury (3 hours, 5 minutes, 50 seconds) and men’s winner Robert Wade (2:49:00) of San Antonio, Texas, raced through the long course in blazing times. They are not officially records, though, because of variations in the route over the years.

Wahaka h k Mezcal’s l’ Raza Zaidi idi Breaks Down Mexico’s True Spirit by Matt Kettmann


RING OF FIRE: A traditional pit at the Wahaka estate in Oaxaca, Mexico.

or millennia, Mesoamerican peoples have harvested more than 40 types of the spiky-tipped agave plant, roasted their starchy cores in wood-fire pits, and then fermented the resulting juices into strong drink. So it was only by historical happenstance and lucky timing that tequila, which is liquor made solely from the blue agave, rose to prominence as Mexico’s national spirit of choice and export, a twist of fate involving a late-19th-century railroad through the city of Tequila that spurred widespread distribution of the region’s preferred booze, and the 20th-century industrialization/marketing boom that followed. In so doing, countless liquors traditionally made from the dozens of other agave plants found throughout Mexico were left in tequila’s wake. Most of these drinks, known collectively as mezcal (which is what many old-timers still call tequila anyway), MEXICAN HOOCH: Mezcal fell into relative dormancy, made and comes out of a still into a jicara, drank locally but never rising near a gourd used for tasting. the prominence of tequila. That’s all changed in recent years, thanks largely to the ambassadorial work of Del Maguey founder Ron Cooper, and now mezcal is a quickly expanding genre. My “aha” moment came at last year’s annual Tequila Harvest Festival, where amid a lineup of excellent tequilas, I spent most of my time hanging in the mezcal corner, learning about the drink’s fascinating political, social, and natural histories while sipping on smoky samples from a handful of vendors. One such purveyor was Raza Zaidi, the Mexico City–raised, San Francisco–based co-owner of Wahaka Mezcal, which he founded a few years ago with some childhood friends. They had considered doing a more runof-the-mill tequila project — slapping a slick label on premade bottles, as so many do nowadays — but fell for mezcal after stumbling into one of the many mescalerías popping up in Mexico City’s hip neighborhoods and heading south to Oaxaca to investigate further. “The further we went, the more we realized that the magic of mezcal is really something that’s passed from generation to generation through families,” said Zaidi, who eventually teamed up with a fifth-generation mescal maker named Alberto Morales, who’s now an equal shareowner in the company. “We own the land, and we control production from end to end,” said Zaidi, who also achieved certified organic status recently.“It’s always a single vision: the magic of Alberto Morales.” To further enlighten the masses, Wahaka’s bottlings, which sell for between $37 and $90, show off the myriad possibilities of mezcal: estategrown versus wild-harvested agave, highland versus lowland plants, un-aged versus aged in oak barrels, and even blends.“Once you consider blends, the number is infinite,” said Zaidi.“That gives you a glimpse of how vast the mezcal universe can be compared to tequila, which is just one variety.” And since mezcal comes with its own environmental issues — some over-harvested wild varieties are already extinct, for instance, and there is a shortage of wood for the pit fires, too — the Wahaka team formed a nonprofit called to do their part in ensuring a brighter future for the people and places producing the MORE liquor.

Wildling Museum Reopens in the Heart of Solvang



Since the success of reality shows like American Idol and The Voice, it seems we simply can’t escape the singer-competition format. In fact, it’s with that very format in mind that the Chumash brings us the next in a long line of crooning contests: Rising Star. On Saturday, September 7, the Santa Ynez casino and resort will host 12 aspiring singers from the STAR POWER: Lizette Rubio is one of tri-county area — including three SBCC students, a music the many area talents competing in teacher from La Colina Junior High, and the president of next week’s Rising Star competition. the Performing Arts Scholarship Foundation — as they battle it out in front of a panel of celebrity judges and audience voters. The winner will take home $5,000, as well as professional recording time, a musical mentorship from Dishwalla’s J.R. Richards, and the opportunity to perform as an opening act at an upcoming Chumash Casino show. The show starts at 7 p.m. and is open to the public.

It’s a special band that can balance anti-corporate antagonism and music-industry success the way No Age can. Spawning out of the Los Angeles DIY scene, drummer Randy Randall and guitarist Dean Spunt craft the kind of punk rock that isn’t afraid to be pretty; both 2010’s Everything in Between and 2008’s Nouns were fuzzy, gritty, cymbal-crashing affairs punctuated by achingly beautiful melodies. On An Object, the band’s third for indie rock mega label Sub Pop, Randall and Spunt crank the reverb to 11, steer clear of the blatantly soaring guitar riffs, and back way off on their now-signature drum maelstroms, and what they come away with is a record that’s rougher, sadder, and undeniably quieter than anything they’ve done yet. In a lot of ways, this shoegazey version of No Age can be a tough pill to swallow; unrelenting fury is, after all, the band’s calling card. But then we get “An Impression,” which pairs Spunt’s monotone with a hiccupping bass line and a delicate string-section backdrop. Better still, “An Impression” is just one of the many quiet, pensive, and startlingly affecting moments An Object has to offer. No Age plays the Ojai Rancho Inn on Wednesday, September 25.

stewardship of nature through art. In the main gallery space, there’s a retrospective of works depicting Wilderness in Art that illustrates the strengths of the Wildling’s collection and its connections to other institutions and collectors in the area. Major works by Fernand Lungren, Ray Strong, and Lockwood de Forest anchor a show that ranges from plein air painting through wood and linoleum cuts all the way to contemporary underwater photography. Upstairs, the gallery spaces include a small atrium specially lit and filled with Bud Bottoms’s signature dolphin sculptures and an adjacent area in which Patrick O’Hara’s images of native California plants and the butterflies that love them are on display. The O’Hara work comes from the collection of the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden, and the exhibit is supported by framed examples from the Garden’s extensive herbarium collection. The entire museum is a testament to the collaborative efforts of all the many ecologically and artistically minded citizens who have made our area such a haven for the thoughtful and curious. In addition to providing regular exhibits, the new Wildling maintains



he thriving town of Solvang has a new feature that every visitor should want to return to again and again. A greatly expanded and elegantly designed new version of the Wildling Museum opened on Saturday, August 24, at -B Mission Drive, with parking right off of Solvang’s main drag. The former location of Backdoor Board has been completely remodeled, and it makes a wonderful gallery space, with high ceilings, multiple areas for exhibition and study, and a charming, relaxed atmosphere that keeps not only with Solvang’s laid-back groove but also with the eco-friendly mission of the Wildling Museum organization. Begun in 1997 by artist Patti Jacquemain and a group of like-minded art and nature enthusiasts, the Wildling quickly outgrew its original location but nevertheless managed to broaden its scope and develop its programs, which include many field trips, as well as traditional gallery shows. Then last year, the opportunity to expand arose. Thanks to the tireless efforts of Executive Director Stacey Otte and her team, the new museum was able to open its doors for a ribbon-cutting event on Friday, August 23, and to fully accept visitors for a public open house on August 24. The opening exhibitions — and there are several — reveal the breadth, intelligence, and sensitivity with which the Wildling has sought to fulfill its mission of promoting the

Bridges ger/songwriter Jessie STRING THEORY: Sin SOhO. at w sho se a CD-relea (right) comes home for

Let’s face it — growing up the heir to a movie star can have its perks: First-class travel, celebrity buddies, houses fit for kings — and that’s just the beginning. But when it comes time to strike out on your own, sometimes having an über-famous parent can also have its drawbacks. Though she started writing songs in high school, Jessie Bridges, 30, is just now stepping into the spotlight. This Saturday, Bridges (yes, that’s Jeff ’s daughter) celebrates the release of her debut album, Let It Breathe, with a release show at SOhO Restaurant & Music Club. Recorded last year in Vancouver, Canada, Let It Breathe is a sweet and solid collection of singer/songwriter fare that easily navigates the void between country and folk rock. Still, Bridges said, the decision to record an album was not an easy one to make. “I’d always been really resistant to pursuing my music, particularly because of who my dad is. I have a wonderful family who I love very much, but being the child of a celebrity can be really difficult because that’s what people associate me with. I knew that if I pursued it, I would really have to prove myself to the world.” Then, while working as an assistant for her pops in Vancouver, opportunity came knocking in the form of a young music producer. “We met and recorded what became the title track. When it was done, he asked if I wanted to stick around and record a whole album, so I moved up to Vancouver for two months and went for it,” said Bridges. The result is a shining debut record about being far from home, finding yourself, and forging your own path — a fitting narrative for this young talent, who is just beginning what promises to be a long career. Jessie Bridges plays SOhO Restaurant & Music Club ( State St.) on Saturday, August 31, at 7:30 p.m. Call 962-7776 or visit for tickets and info. — AC

Word and Sword Cyrano de Bergerac , presented by PCPA Theaterfest. At Solvang Festival Theater, Wednesday, August 21. Shows through September 1. Reviewed by Joseph Miller


he title character of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac is one of the truly unforgettable inventions of the theatrical imagination: a plumed, fearless 17th-century French army cadet, dazzling with blade and wit, passionate in war and love, contemptuous toward every social pretension and fawning of authority, inwardly rich while outwardly Spartan. And then there is that nose. Nature has bestowed on Cyrano an extremely large schnoz toward which he has evolved a deep-seated complex — mortally intolerant toward all mockery but tragically insecure in matters of the heart. He cannot openly declare his love for the beautiful and bright Roxane for fear of ridicule and rejection, and so he woos her by ghostwriting love letters for the handsome but tongue-tied Christian, a fellow cadet who is eye-candy to Roxane’s fancy. Cyrano is PCPA’s summer entry in the classic theater category, presented in Ranjit Bolt’s distinguished translation, which painstakingly versifies the entire text in rhyming couplets. This may strike the ear at first as oddly Seussical, but Bolt is, in fact, following the form of the 1897 French original. Besides, what better tribute to a drama that is all about poetry and the power of the word than versification? A commanding Cyrano is portrayed by Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s longtime lead man Derrick Lee Weeden, whose classical baritone diction is like oak wood and butter. Weeden finds his own tempered path to Cyrano’s panache without attempting to imitate the edgy aggressive energy of Gérard Depardieu in the iconic 1990 film version. Cara Ricketts skillfully traverses the emotional range from infatuation to agonized mourning as Lady Roxane. Gregory Linington summons the right mixture of competing loyalties with his Comte de Guiche, while Tobias Shaw is well-cast as the impatiently love-struck Christian de Neuvillette. Cyrano is classic theater for what it teaches while it entertains — not only a noble reminder of the lonely road of remaining faithful to oneself but also an unabashed encomium for the joys of language, rare to hear in the culture of the image. Indeed, of all the competing influences for the heart — sword, status, wealth, and beauty — here it is the word that is most penetrating. ■

a&e | POP, ROCK & JAZZ PREVIEW SING ME A SONG: San Diego singer/ songwriter Jason Mraz takes his show and humanitarian efforts to the Santa Barbara Bowl on Monday.

JASON MRAZ’S BIG PICTURE Mr. A-Z Lands at Bowl for Labor Day Benefit Show by Rachel Cabakoff


hat better way to celebrate the social and economic accomplishments of American workers than with a song-filled night under the stars — all the while raising money for a good cause? Multiplatinum singer/songwriter Jason Mraz makes a pit stop at the Santa Barbara Bowl this Labor Day as part of his world-spanning Tour Is a Four Letter Word itinerary. The show plays off of the title of his most recent album, Love Is a Four Letter Word, which was released in April 2012 and has sold more than nine million singles and a million-plus album copies since. In the process, Love has spawned a barrage of hit singles, including the ubiquitous “I Won’t Give Up,” which debuted at No.  on the U.S. Billboard charts and marked Mraz’s second Top  single. Perhaps more importantly, though, Monday’s concert will benefit Life Rolls On (LRO), a nonprofit organization that supports spinal-cord-injury research and provides quality-of-life support to patients. On the phone from Poland last week, Mraz explained that he has a close relationship with the organization’s founder, Jesse Billauer, and has put on several concerts with him in recent years. It’s been 17 years since a surfing accident put Billauer in a wheelchair at the age of 17, and he wanted to do something that acknowledged that, Mraz said. “I particularly appreciate the organization for its quality of life that it offers. Life Rolls On motivates and inspires — they motivated and inspired me, and I’m not even in a chair,” Mraz said. “I’ve loved Jesse since I’ve met him, and I think that his organization is great. And so this is a continuation of our support.” They Will Surf Again is just one of Life Rolls On’s popular events, which brings in a handful of volunteers and gives those with paralysis the chance to ride their own wave. While planning the tour, Mraz said, he wanted to perform at a location in Southern or Central California that played well into LRO’s mission. Being that Santa Barbara has a large surf community, he said he felt it was a good fit. “What better place than the Santa Barbara Bowl? It’s such a beautiful and classic venue,” Mraz said. “Jesse and I also duck away to Hollister Ranch whenever we can to do

some surfing, so it seems right that we actually pull over in Santa Barbara and sing some songs.” LRO is one of the many organizations falling under the umbrella of the Jason Mraz Foundation, which Mraz founded in 2011 to promote human equality, arts and education, and environmental preservation. Various charities that benefit from the foundation include VH Save the Music, Free the Children, and the Surfrider Foundation. Mraz calls this the foundation’s “incubation period” and hopes that, eventually, it will be able to support its own movements, as well as act as an intermediary for other causes. Mraz spent the summer touring far-off locations ranging from Moscow and Russia to Thailand. As far as the concert in Santa Barbara goes, he says he plans on playing a little bit of old and new material, as well as bringing along a handful of special guests. And keeping in mind that Monday’s a school night at the end of a holiday weekend, Mraz said he purposely planned for an early show (the evening starts at 4pm) so that families could attend and still get the kids to bed early. So, what’s next for the talented musician and philanthropist? In between touring and running a nonprofit, Mraz is “in the developmental stages” of his fifth studio album, a collaboration with Los Angeles folk rockers Raining Jane that he says has been in the works for the past six years. “It’s going to have a completely different sound than my previous albums,” he said.“Their involvement mirrors a lot of the message or the intention of the album, which is balance, and honoring the feminine side as much as my masculine side. Having women help me perform and help me write these songs is something that I think is, well, it’s just been an amazing experience, and I think that the listeners are really going to be moved by it.” Jason Mraz plays the Santa Barbara Bowl (1122 N. Milpas St.) on Monday, September 2, at 4 p.m. Call 962-7411 or visit for tickets and info.

2013 Emmys Recognize Independent Programming by Charles Donelan and Jack Crosbie


Interview: Saturday Night Live’s Bill Hader

[editor’s note: One of Hader’s most popular characters, a flamboyantly gay city correspondent for SNL’s fake news broadcasts, left Anderson Cooper at the altar in favor of costar Seth Meyers in front of a congregation of hosts, stars, and characters from the past eight years’ worth of skits during the conclusion of Hader’s final show.]



hey are still called the Primetime Emmy Awards, but the question for several prominent nominees this year would appear to have changed from “Who is ready for primetime?” to “Is primetime ready for them?” Scores of challenges to network supremacy have arisen this season, beginning with popular YouTube videos and leading to non-broadcast outlets such as Netflix entering the arena of original creative content production. With 14 total Emmy nominations, including nine for its original series House of Cards and three for its revival of the cult-classic comedy Arrested Development, the fledgling production arm at Netflix has received unprecedented validation from the understandably Hollywood-centric academy. To celebrate the opening of the television market, The Santa Barbara Independent salutes two iconoclastic actors — and Emmy nominees — as well as the whole phenomenon with a new online feature we’re calling We’re Watching. Visit for all of our TV coverage.

Were there any other memorable moments leading up to your last show? At one of our last table reads, Fred Armisen had the Flaming Lips come in and sing a song to us, which was fantastic. They happened to be doing [Jimmy] Fallon that day, so Fred and his friends went down and said, “Why don’t you guys just come up?” They sang “Do You Realize.” It was pretty amazing. Was it an emotional good-bye? It was emotional, and it was hard, but it didn’t feel like saying good-bye to everybody. I had a hard time saying good-bye to a bunch of people, so I tended to just say, “I’ll be seeing you guys soon!” I don’t like to dwell too much on it — it probably hasn’t fully hit me yet, that I’ve left. It’s probably going to when the show comes back. That’s what they always tell you, when the show comes back it really sinks in when you’re not there. The Emmy nomination — this is your second one in two years. How does it feel to have your work highlighted like that? I’m incredibly flattered — just, incredibly flattered.

Interview: Veep’s Tony Hale

MISTER SATURDAY NIGHT: SNL’s Emmynominated funnyman Bill Hader looks forward to a new stage of his career after finishing his final season in New York. Bill Hader is one of the biggest names in on-screen comedy of the past decade, and this year’s he’s up for Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series for his work on Saturday Night Live. Though his performances on SNL — typified by eccentric characters and outrageous celebrity impersonations — arguably hit their peak last season, Hader announced this May that his eighth year on the show would be his last. Between now and then, he’s moved with his family to Los Angeles and put out The To Do List, a film starring himself, Aubrey Plaza, Alia Shawkat, and Rachel Bilson and written by his wife and first-time writer/director, Maggie Carey, herself a veteran of the L.A. improv comedy scene. We caught up with Hader last week to talk about his work on SNL and his upcoming projects. I want to talk a bit about your SNL send-off. What was it like leaving the cast? Did they throw you a big party? Not really, no. I mean you’re part of an ensemble, so everyone’s different, and I wanted to kinda do a final “thing.” The Stefon thing was exactly what I wanted to do, which was to say good-bye as a character, and we had thought of that probably a year beforehand. So it went perfect in that sense.

On Veep, the hit HBO comedy series starring Julia LouisDreyfus, the pressure of politics is relentless. It seems like some kind of fantastic setback or affront hits Vice President Selina Meyer (Louis-Dreyfus) on average about every three minutes. When things go this wrong this often, you need a bagman, and that’s where Tony Hale comes in. Hale plays Gary Walsh, the VP’s personal aide. Usually referred to as the “body man” or “body person,” the personal aide goes everywhere with his official, typically standing within a few yards at all times so as to be available for requests and to observe and run interference on any incoming challenges. Most people would do a job like this when they were young and full of energy and then quit after a few years, but not Gary. For Gary, carrying the bag that contains Meyer’s stuff and picking up her shoes and sliding them under her feet when someone barges into her office is all part of what it means to serve. Tony Hale, whom many will remember from his uncanny turn as the neurotic amputee Byron “Buster” Bluth on Arrested Development, has taken the Veep body man’s bag and run with it. He is nominated for an Emmy this year in the category of Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series. Hale spoke about the nod and the work by phone last week. What’s going on with Gary Walsh? He’s so devoted; there’s something almost mysterious about it. Yes, well, in Gary’s ideal world, I think that he and Selina would be married because already it’s like he is married to the job. At one point, when the story took a turn that made it look like he would be let go, I don’t think Gary knew what he would do after that. He has the job he wants. I imagine that his home is like a Costco version of the bag, with extra supplies of all the stuff he carries. The profanity can get pretty thick on the show. How does that make you feel? It’s horrible to me how much they all cuss. But I know there’s a lot of truth in it. Anytime you put someone under that much pressure, they have to freak out, so I

IT’S IN THE BAG: Tony Hale stars as the body man to Julia Louis-Dreyfus’s U.S. vice president on HBO’s Veep. think in a way all the harsh language actually shows the humanity of these public figures. How is working with Julia Louis-Dreyfus? Julia can do even the smallest thing, like these little noises that she makes when she’s listening to someone, and she makes me laugh. There are so many layers to her performance. And she’s a fantastic team player, and she has a great understanding of comedy, so that creates opportunities for everyone around her. Some of the show’s funniest bits occur while other people are talking as you and Selina interact physically, like with the shoes that you are constantly finding for her. Do you enjoy the movement stuff? I love physical comedy. My favorite show is Wipeout. That’s the most fun of the role for me because Julia is an incredible partner in that. You can have absolute confidence with her, and that allows you to go crazy because you know that whatever you throw out there, she’s going to catch the ball and send it right back at you. — CD

Men Being Boys The World’s End. Simon Pegg, Nick Frost, and Paddy Considine star in a film written by Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg and directed by Wright.

Manohla Dargis


Reviewed by Josef Woodard


n the wild-ride concoction that is The World’s End, the dizzy art of the macho pub crawl goes to new, bizarre lengths. Pints, seen poured in loving close-up shots, are consumed in mass quantities; midlife men seek to complete adolescent scores in the old hometown, finding they can’t quite go home again; and a woozy pub crawl yields to epic barroom brawls. Heads roll. Literally. And it’s all good, goofy post-postmodern fun. Strange and sometimes liberating things can happen when science-fiction dynamics inject themselves into earthly party-time comedy contexts, as in this summer’s This Is the End, an end-of-the-world scenario spiked with comical celebrity excess, or in Tim Burton’s classic Mars Attacks, where alien-invader cheesiness meets carbonated comic invention. Cowriter Simon Pegg, with his edgy-witted hedonist charm in tow, himself plays the chief mischief maker and project coordinator, a protracted teenager (oh, and alcoholic), who gathers his mates, now settled into their bourgeois “adult” lives, to attend to adolescent business left unfinished: completing the round of pubs in the “Golden Mile” of their old small town, finishing off, fittingly, with the pub known as “The World’s End.” Alas, things are not so staid and familiar as they remembered in the old town. Even the beloved old hip teacher (Pierce Brosnan) has a new DNA perspective. Therein begins the sci-fi-comicromp factor.

ScoTt Bowles


BUZZ KILL: Simon Pegg helped pen and stars in The World’s End , in which five friends’ pub crawl is bombarded by body-snatching robots. In a strange way, director Edgar Wright’s finale to his Three Flavours Cornetto Trilogy (including Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz over the past decade) sates our appetite for the satirical over-the-topness of previous films, while also arriving in theaters as a refreshing, saltier, and zanier end to this summer’s crop of decent rite-of-passage films (Kings of Summer, The Way Way Back, The Spectacular Now). Of course, The World’s End takes a much more circuitous and satire-lined route to the rite-of-passage milieu. There are genuinely emotional moments and self-realization involved, but mostly, the film is about a deliciously gonzo passage into dimensions of sight, sound, and mind gag. ■






A Cut Above Its Genre You’re Next. Sharni Vinson, Nicholas Tucci, and A.J. Bowen star in a film written by Simon Barrett and directed by Adam Wingard. Reviewed by Josef Woodard


or those who get squeamish at the sight of blood, or the sight of flesh, or the spirit of invasive, inveterate malevolence unleashed in steady waves, you may be well advised to seek another title besides You’re Next. On the other hand, those otherwise well-adjusted pacifists with a taste for a good slasher picture with a few clever twists of the creative genre-knife … come on down. In You’re Next, what is continually next is another attack by ruthless marauders in creepy animal masks, lurking outside a large, isolated house and preying upon a family gathered for a reunion — at night and with no cell phone reception, of course. Basically, it’s heebie-jeebie time, replete with creaking doors, shock tactics, and an effectively rankling score lurking in the periphery of our moviegoer mind. In keeping with the slasher film model, simple old-school gunplay is considered gauche (except for a single incident, almost an in-joke anomaly); here blunt blows, slashing blades, and the ancient art of crossbow wielding measure up to the code of battlefront authenticity. Formula B-movies and indie movies — both categories to which this film applies — share certain traits and restraints, including modest budgets that require resourceful use of whatever means is available. You’re Next, whose cast is serviceable but not always rising above the camp level (the blissful exception being Sharni Vinson as the kick-ass woman who has game and killer wits about her), also deftly capitalizes on its single remote location. Director (and editor) Adam Wingard coaxes as much

FAIR GAME: A group of animal-masked killers encounters an unexpected obstacle (Sharni Vinson) in You’re Next. fun-loving angst as possible from an old house and sneaks in occasional self-effacing humor, as with two lingering, wink-wink shots of killers nestled between their dead prey, resting in the afterglow of satisfaction for a job nicely done. But what saves You’re Next from the realm of shameless pulp is a plotline that begins to thicken just in time, just as we’re wearying of seeing family members offed in inventive ways. Something more fiendish and surprising bubbles up in the storyline beneath the mayhem, reminding us that the blood-and-guts world can only be popcorny and film-referential fun for so long. Even slasher films need that something extra to make them a cut above. You’re Next manages to be a real brain blender of a new■ comer in the field. august 29, 2013

MAC DADDY: Ashton Kutcher (center) portrays the late Apple cofounder in the biopic Jobs.

Movie Guide

Edited by Aly Comingore The following films are playing in Santa Barbara FRIDAY, AUGUST 30, THROUGH THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 5. Descriptions followed by initials — DJP (D.J. Palladino), JW (Josef Woodard) — have been taken from our critics’ reviews, which can be read in full at The symbol ✯ indicates the film is recommended.

FIRST LOOKS ✯ The World’s End (109 mins.; R: pervasive language, including sexual references) Reviewed on page 55. Camino Real/Fiesta 5 ✯ You’re Next (94 mins.; R: strong bloody violence, language, some sexuality/nudity) Reviewed on page 55. Camino Real/Fiesta 5 Jobs (128 mins.; PG-13: some drug content, brief strong language)





august 29, 2013

Most people who refuse to go to this movie seem to assume that the casting is the worst part. Boy, are they wrong. Actually, Ashton Kutcher deserves considerable praise for the tough job of not only inhabiting this role — he is much more fluid and reserved than you might expect — but also enlivening a film with such a crappy script. Steve Jobs, for all of his manifest and well-documented imperfections, deserves far better than this. An intelligent assessment would probably be forced to admit that he deserved to be ignored as the topic of a typical biopic of the contemporary overwrought Hollywood style that tends to dwell on the melodramatic faults and convey little of what makes this person important enough for a feature film. We know Jobs, but this movie doesn’t know him well enough to celebrate him. If an alien walked into this film, it would assume that Jobs was a very bad acid head who spent most of his lifetime either screaming in a mirror or being a jerk to his staff, friends, and family. And maybe he did something in an office with computers. Nonetheless, Kutcher is memorable and doesn’t deserve the scorn. The best part of this film is the sight of him loping into a room like a simian on a mission, but the worst part is that we never get the sense that his mission was anything but his own dumb trip. (DJP) Plaza de Oro The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones (130 mins.; PG-13: intense sequences of fantasy violence and action, some suggestive content)

Director Harald Zwart’s last film was the lyrically rendered reboot of The Karate Kid (2010), so he’s already proved himself able to make a good movie against the odds. In this movie, the deck is stacked a little harder against him since he not only has to stand up to the legacy of teen supernatural love stories like the recently completed Twilight debacle but also is saddled with a script that doesn’t even pretend to avoid clichés. Yes, there is a pair of supernaturally vexed potential boyfriends fight-

ing for the lovely Clary (Lily Collins), and yes one of them might even be her brother — giving us a whole Star Wars reference. And yes, the story features hormoneaddled kids doing wholesale slaughter yet feeling frustrated sexually because on the one hand there’s that incest thing and on the other it just won’t get past the movie ratings folk. All the same, this is pretty exciting stuff. Zwart knows how to get the ball rolling and maintain a feverish pitch of action — even though some of the fight scenes are shot too tight for clarity — and he constantly throws wondrous sights at us, beginning with a demon nightclub and ending with a portal in the heart of the Big Apple. (This Canadian-German production doesn’t really feel like New York, though.) The performers are a little too beautiful, and the story is more than twice-told, yet somehow Zwart manages to create a Tween Gothic that gets beneath your skin. (DJP) Camino Real/Metro 4

PREMIERES Closed Circuit (96 mins.; R: language, brief violence)

Former lovers reunite and team up following a high-profile terrorism case. Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall star. Paseo Nuevo Getaway (90 mins.; PG-13: intense action, violence and mayhem throughout, some rude gestures, language)

A former race-car driver (Ethan Hawke) hijacks a car — and its occupant — and tries to track down his kidnapped wife. Camino Real/Metro 4

The Grandmaster (108 mins.; PG-13: violence, some smoking, brief drug use, language)

Kar Wai Wong’s biopic takes a look at martial arts master Ip Man. Metro 4 Instructions Not Included (115 mins.; PG-13: sexual content, thematic elements, language)

A man and the daughter he found on his doorstep face new challenges when her birth mother resurfaces. Fiesta 5 One Direction: This Is Us (92 mins.; PG: mild language)

Directed by Morgan Spurlock, this behind-the-scenes look at the lives of Niall, Zayn, Liam, Louis, and Harry follows the boys from their humble beginnings to playing London’s O Arena. Camino Real (3- D and 2-D)/ Fiesta 5 (3-D and 2-D)

Riddick (119 mins.; R: strong violence, language, some sexual content/nudity)

Left for dead on a barren planet, Riddick (Vin Diesel) finds himself face-to-face with a race of alien predators. Arlington/Camino Real (Starts Thu., Sept. 5)

SCREENINGS Back to the Future Part II (108 mins.; PG: violence, language, some sexual references, smoking)

Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) returns from the future and realizes he must revisit 1955 to prevent disastrous changes to the present. Christopher Lloyd also stars. Sat., Aug. 31, 7pm, Plaza Playhouse Theater, 4916 Carpinteria Ave., Carpinteria

✯ Star Trek (127 mins.; PG-13: sci-fi action and violence, brief sexual content)

Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) tries to live up to his father’s legacy, while a vengeful Romulan attempts to destroy the Federation one planet at a time. Director J.J. Abrams is exactly right for the job — he respects Trek traditions while expanding them visually. (DJP) Fri., Aug. 30, 7pm; Mon., Sept. 2, 7pm, Isla Vista Theater, 960 Embarcadero del Norte

PG-13: intense sequences of sci-fi action, violence)

Captain Kirk (Chris Pine) leads a manhunt to a dangerous world to track down the man who threatens to destroy the Enterprise. Director J.J. Abrams, the cinematic son of early Spielberg, shows us amazing things, makes us feel feelings, and somehow gets us to laugh at our own willing credulity. (DJP). Fri., Aug. 30, 10pm; Mon., Sept. 2, 10pm, Isla Vista Theater, 960 Embarcadero del Norte

NOW SHOWING Blue Jasmine (98 mins.; PG-13: mature thematic material, language, sexual content)

A woman in crisis (Cate Blanchett) heads to San Francisco, where she reconnects with her estranged sister. Woody Allen writes and directs. It’s hard to know what to make of the uneven, sometimes thinseeming Blue Jasmine, but Blanchett’s performance makes it worth seeing. (JW) Paseo Nuevo/Riviera

✯ Elysium (109 mins.; R: strong bloody violence, language throughout) In the future, the wealthy live on a manmade space station, while the rest of the population resides on barren Earth. Neill Blomkamp’s second film takes place in the same thematic universe as his surprising debut, District . It’s science fiction in a terrifyingly “realistic” vein. It’s both weird and formulaic, not to mention a happy ending to a summer of mediocre blockbusters. (DJP) Arlington/Fairview

Forest Whitaker stars as an African-American butler working in the White House at numerous significant points throughout the 20th century. Ambitious in its scope and an important film in its subject matter, The Butler is a rousing success on many fronts even if its truth cred is wanting. (JW) Fairview/Paseo Nuevo Monsters University (107 mins.; G) The Monsters, Inc. cast returns for this prequel, which looks at the relationship between Mike and Sulley before they were friends. This studio used to wow us consistently with sheer originality, but most of the plot of Monsters U feels vaguely animated by Animal House and Revenge of the Nerds. (DJP) Plaza de Oro (2-D) (Shows Sat.-Mon., Aug. 31 - Sept. 2)

Planes (92 mins.; PG: some mild action, rude humor)

A small crop-dusting plane with a big fear of heights dreams of competing in a prestigious aerial race. Fairview (2-D)/ Fiesta 5 (2-D)

✯ The Spectacular Now (95 mins.; R: alcohol use, language, some sexuality, all involving teens)

A party-boy high schooler has a change of heart — and lifestyle — when he meets an atypical “nice girl.” It’s not necessarily a profound film or even a very unusual take on the high-school-romance comingof-age melodrama. But it is exquisitely executed — and that counts for a lot. (DJP) Paseo Nuevo

✯ The Way Way Back (103 mins.; PG-13: thematic elements, language, some sexual content, brief drug material)

Fourteen-year-old Duncan befriends the manager of a water park during a particularly troublesome summer break. This refreshingly smart and subtle number is blissfully off to the left of the summer-film formula, with its blend of coming-of-age angles, family dysfunction, and emotional/ existential riptides. (JW) Plaza de Oro We’re the Millers (110 mins.; R: crude sexual content, pervasive language, drug material, brief graphic nudity)

A career pot dealer (Ed Helms) fabricates a fake family to help him move a large marijuana shipment from Mexico to the U.S. Camino Real/Metro 4

A UN employee (Brad Pitt) races against time to stop a zombie army that’s overtaking the human race. An adrenaline-pumping and somehow fun-loving adventure, World War Z is a big-budget B-movie with stunning action sequences and a high creep factor. (JW) Fiesta 5 (2-D) augusT 29, 2013






(Mar. 21 - Apr. 19): You seem primed to act like a ram, the astrological creature associated with your sign. I swear you have that look in your eyes: the steely gaze that tells me you’re about to take a very direct approach to smashing the obstacles in your way. I confess that I have not always approved of such behavior. In the past, you have sometimes done more damage to yourself than to the obstruction you’re trying to remove. But this is one time when the head-first approach might work. There is indeed evidence that the job at hand requires a battering ram. What does your intuition tell you?

(June 21 - July 22): My vision of you in the coming week involves you being more instinctual and natural and primal than usual. I have a picture in my mind of you climbing trees and rolling in the grass and holding bugs in your hands and letting the wind mess up your hair. You’re gazing up at the sky a lot, and you’re doing spontaneous dance moves for no other reason than because it feels good, and you’re serenading the sun and clouds and hills with your favorite songs. I see you eating food with your fingers and touching things you’ve never touched. I hear you speaking wild truths you’ve bottled up for months. As for sex? I think you know what to do.

(Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): The online Time Travel Mart sells products you might find handy in the event that you travel through time. Available items include barbarian repellant, dinosaur eggs, time travel sickness pills, a centurion’s helmet, a portable wormhole, and a samurai umbrella. I have no financial tie to this store. So when I recommend you consider purchasing something from it or another company with a similar product line, it’s only because I suspect that sometime soon you will be summoned to explore and possibly even alter the past. Be well-prepared to capitalize on the unexpected opportunities. (Here’s the Time Travel Mart: 



(July 23 - Aug. 22): The Japanese word senzuri refers to a sexual act of self-love performed by a man. Its literal meaning is “a hundred rubs.” The corresponding term for the female version is shiko shiko manzuri, or “10 thousand rubs.” Judging from the astrological omens, I’m guessing that the applicable metaphor for you in the days ahead will be shiko shiko manzuri rather than senzuri. Whatever gender you are, you’ll be wise to slowww wayyyy down and take your time, not just in pursuit of pleasure but in pretty much everything you do. The best rewards and biggest blessings will come from being deliberate, gradual, thorough, and leisurely.

(Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): Mystic poets find the divine presence everywhere. The wind carries God’s love, bestowing tender caresses. The scent of a lily is an intimate message from the Holy Beloved, provoking bliss. Even a bowl of oatmeal contains the essence of the Creator; to eat it is to receive an ecstatic blessing. But those of us who aren’t mystic poets are not necessarily attuned to all this sweetness. We may even refuse to make ourselves receptive to the ceaseless offerings. To the mystic poets, we are like sponges floating in the ocean but trying very hard not to get wet. Don’t do that this week, Scorpio. Be like a sponge floating in the ocean and allowing yourself to get totally soaked.

TAURUS (Apr. 20 - May 20): “I’m Gonna Be ( Miles)” is a raucous love song by the Scottish band The Proclaimers. In the chorus, the singer declares, “I would walk 500 miles / And I would walk 500 more / Just to be the man who walked 1,000 miles / To fall down at your door.” In 2011, a Chinese woman named Ling Hsueh told her boyfriend Liu Peiwen she would marry him if he took the lyrics of this song to heart. In response, loverboy embarked on a thousand-mile hike to the distant city where she lived. His stunt seemed to have expedited the deepening of their relationship. The two are now wed. In accordance with your current astrological omens, Taurus, I encourage you to consider the possibility of being a romantic fool like Liu Peiwen. What playfully heroic or richly symbolic deed might you be willing to perform for the sake of love?

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): “The works must be conceived with fire in the soul but executed with clinical coolness,” said the painter Joan Miró in describing his artistic process. I recommend a similar approach to you in the coming weeks. Identify what excites you the most and will continue to inspire and energize you for the foreseeable future. Activate the wild parts of your imagination as you dream and scheme about how to get as much of that excitement as you can stand. And then set to work, with methodical self-discipline, to make it all happen.

VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): “A beginning is the time for taking the most delicate care that the balances are correct,” wrote science fiction author Frank Herbert. I urge you to heed that advice. According to my analysis of the astrological omens, you will oversee the germination of several new trends in the coming weeks. Future possibilities will reveal themselves to you. You will be motivated to gather the ingredients and formulate the plans to make sure that those trends and possibilities will actually happen. One of the most critical tasks you can focus on is to ensure that the balances are righteous right from the start.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21): James Caan is a well-known actor who has appeared in more than 80 movies, including notables like The Godfather, A Bridge Too Far, and Elf. But he has also turned down major roles in a series of blockbusters: Star Wars, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Kramer vs. Kramer, Blade Runner, and Apocalypse Now. I present his odd choices as a cautionary tale for you in the coming weeks, Sagittarius. Don’t sell yourself short. Don’t shrink from the challenges that present themselves. Even if you have accomplished a lot already, an invitation to a more complete form of success may be in the offing.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19): “What a terrible mistake to let go of something wonderful for something real,” says a character in one of Miranda July’s short stories. I’m offering similar advice to you, Capricorn. The “something real” you would get by sacrificing “something wonderful” might seem to be the more practical and useful option, but I don’t think it would be in the long run. Sticking with “something wonderful” will ultimately inspire breakthroughs that boost your ability to meet real-world challenges.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18): “There is more truth in our erotic zones than in the whole of religions and mathematics,” wrote the English artist Austin O. Spare. I think he was being melodramatic. Who can say for sure whether such an extreme statement is accurate? But I suspect that it’s at least a worthy hypothesis for you to entertain in the coming weeks, Aquarius. The new wisdom you could potentially stir up through an exploration of Eros will be extensive and intensive. Your research may proceed more briskly if you have a loving collaborator who enjoys playing, but that’s not an absolute necessity.

PISCES (Feb. 19 - Mar. 20): “This suspense is terrible. I hope it will last.” So says a character in Oscar Wilde’s play The Importance of Being Earnest. I could envision you speaking those words sometime soon. Plain old drama could creep in the direction of passionate stimulation. High adventure may beckon, and entertaining stories might erupt. Soon you could find yourself feeling tingly all over, and that might be so oddly pleasant that you don’t want it to end. With the right attitude — that is, a willingness to steep yourself in the lyrical ambiguity — your soul could feed off the educational suspense for quite a while.

WINE GUIDE Wineries/Tasting Rooms

Wine of the Week Carr Winery Cabernet Franc Camp Four Vineyard 2010 Though not technically in the Happy Canyon appellation, Camp Four Vineyard acts very much like that warmer eastern corner of the Santa Ynez Valley, where Bordeaux varietals done in the regional style seem to nicely embrace the more herbal, even pleasantly vegetal side of the equation. This Carr expression does just that, weaving in a bit of green pepper with ample spice, leather, and freshly broken chocolate bar flavors. You can try yourself during the Salsipuedes Street winery’s “Friday Night Flight,” which features cab franc on September 27, but not before pinot noir on September 6, syrah and grenache on September 13, and sangiovese on September 20. There’s also an art show on September 14. See

new restaurant ntt n named am Verdé has opened amed am at  State Street, the former home of Zia Café. “We’re taking the southwestern cuisine of Santa Barbara up a notch,” says owner Dave Campos.“Southwestern cuisine is a fusion of Spanish, Native American and Mexican ingredients and techniques. Often referred to as Southwest or New Mexican cuisine, it has its own distinct preparation, ingredients, and flavor. The defining ingredient of our Southwest food is green and red chiles grown only in Hatch, New Mexico.” The kitchen is run by Jim Gartman, an award-winning chef who has cooked from New York to New Mexico and moved to Santa Barbara from a country club in Arizona. Hours are 11:30 a.m.- 9 p.m. Tuesday-Sunday. For more information, call 8970033 or visit

Indian restaurant Spice Avenue at  State Street in Santa Barbara will be closing shop on September 5, and the menu is moving to G-Town. The owners of India Club restaurant at  Calle Real in Goleta, who also own the downtown eatery, will replace the Goleta eatery’s menu with Spice Avenue’s. India Club will continue to offer their buffet. Thanks to reader Christina for the tip.


Italia Pizza & Pasta at  North Fairview Avenue, Goleta, which opened in June 2011, plans to close their doors on September 14. I spoke with management and was told that their lease was not renewed because the building owners are removing contaminated soil below the dry cleaner that was next door and part of the Italia space will be dug up to complete that process. I am told that owner Andre Neumann is looking for a partner to reopen Italia in a new location.

MERRY CHRISTMAS: Having finally settled back in Santa Barbara after being gone much of August on a national park tour in Northern California and Southern Oregon, I was shopping at Costco recently and noticed that Christmas decorations are already on sale, even before Labor Day. This is the earliest I have ever seen Santa arrive on the South Coast. Last year, I first noticed Rudolph & Company at Costco on September 5. This year’s holiday season appears to have started on or around August 23. Perhaps next year we can start setting up our Nativity scenes on the th of July?

and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to the return of the deposit paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee, or the Mortgagee’s Attorney. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (949) 236‑5599 or visit this Internet Web site WWW.nationwideposting. com, using the file number assigned to this case 2200‑002936‑F00. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale.
