Dear Readers, For the past 35 years, it has been our honor to publish the Santa Barbara Independent. Every day, our staff continues to work hard to report and deliver the news and information we all need — now more than ever. This week, Thursday, March 26, the Independent had planned to publish our annual Summer Camp Guide. Each spring, for more than three decades, Santa Barbara parents have arranged their children’s summer activities by using our complete listings of camps, classes, workshops, and events. But because of the uncertainty caused by the coronavirus pandemic, we have decided to delay publication of the Summer Camp Guide until a future date, to be determined. We know how important this issue is to Santa Barbara businesses that use our guide to reach families throughout the region. And we understand
that our readers depend on this time-trusted source. We want to reassure you that we are not canceling the guide, merely postponing it. In the meantime, we are working with school administrators and public officials to determine when it would be appropriate to publish the Santa Barbara Independent Summer Camp Guide and will keep you apprised as these plans develop. Please reach out to your advertising rep or email@example.com with any questions. We are also available by phone at (805) 965-5205, and online at independent.com. In this week’s pages, you will find information on how COVID-19 is affecting our community. We will continue to work tirelessly to provide you with the most comprehensive coverage. Please join the hundreds of subscribers to support independent journalism in Santa Barbara. Visit independent.com/subscribe to sign up for our Indy+ service.

CORONAVIRUS C O N T I N U E S Santa Barbara County’s Response Widens in Week Two of COVID-19 Outbreak
health-care providers are ready for the “surge” of new cases that will — not might — hit us any day now. Hospitals are accepting handmade sewn masks due to the shortage, and doctors are prepared to build treatment rooms in outdoor tents with beds, even committing to using empty hotel rooms if worse comes to worst. As the medical unknowns abound, the community is already taking steps to address the economic side of the crisis. Both the County and the City of Santa Barbara issued eviction moratoriums Tuesday, protecting all of those who lost their income source at the hands of the life-altering virus. Many of Santa Barbara’s hundreds of nonprofits have stepped in to help, like Showers of Blessing helping the homeless get showers, the Foodbank delivering free meals to the elderly, and 805 Undocufund helping undocumented immigrants receive benefits while out of work. On the federal level, after days of squabbling, the Trump administration and Senate reached a deal Wednesday on a nearly $2 trillion rescue package for Americans economically scathed by COVID-19. If the package passes Congress, it will include $1,200 per taxpayer in individual payments and $500 extra per child for those who make less than $75,000 a year. Read on for how our government, health, and nonprofit leaders are preparing for the tidal wave of new cases and economic downturn that will hit the county in week —Delaney Smith two of Santa Barbara’s lockdown.
What Does Gov. Newsom’s Order Really Mean? by Delaney Smith hough State Street is largely empty this week,
groups of young people can still be found clustered on Santa Barbara’s beaches, seemingly unaware of the global pandemic infecting their community.
Answers to the Frequently Asked Questions About Sheltering in Place
Most Santa Barbarans, however, are painfully informed about the planet’s current health crisis — overwhelmed by news about it, losing jobs because of it, and for parents, turning into full-time home-school teachers during it. Still many are still confused about Governor Newsom’s executive order to shelter in place. What does it really mean?
MARCH 26, 2020
Here are answers to some of the most frequently asked questions.
What is considered an essential business and who are its workers? Pot dispen-
saries, farmers’ markets, liquor stores that sell food, laundromats, and any restaurant delivering food and alcoholic beverages are all considered essential during the shelter-in-place order. Din- Parts of downtown (above) and the popular Funk Zone neighborhood (below left) looked like ing in restaurants, drinking in bars, ghost towns following Governor Gavin Newsom’s stay-at-home order. and hanging out in theaters, clubs, or music venues is illegal.

So if my work isn’t considered essential, can I leave my house?
Fresh air and Santa Barbara sunshine aren’t illegal. In fact, going outside for a walk or to exercise is almost essential for maintaining good mental health. Just be sure to keep six feet between yourself and others — the minimum amount for social distancing. And of course, you can always leave the house to get food, medications, or health care. If you are leaving the house to run one of these essential errands, keep social distancing in mind. If you don’t own a car and can’t walk, MTD is considered an essential service and is still
Can I get arrested if I ignore the order and go out anyway? Technically, yes. Realistically, no. Because it’s an order — not a recommendation — it is enforceable with a misdemeanor or fine. But at least for those under the order in Santa Barbara, that shouldn’t be a problem. “Although this Public Health Order can be enforced through citations or arrests if violated, we are encouraging our personnel to educate the public and exercise discretion in obtaining voluntary compliance,” wrote Sheriff Bill Brown in a statement also signed by the county’s other nine law enforcement chiefs. “Make no mistake, however, in understanding that we will be steadfast and diligent in seeking out and bringing to justice criminal offenders who attempt to take advantage of this situation.” Don’t be that person. Practice social distancing, adhere n to the order, and help flatten the curve.

rom storms and floods to raging wildfires and fatal debris flows, Santa Barbara is no stranger to disasters and emergency preparedness. But the COVID-19 pandemic is a new kind of disaster. This is the second week that the health crisis is requiring all Californians to stay at home, and there’s no end yet in sight. All schools are closed and, unless you’re a part of the “essential” workforce, you’re not supposed to leave home, except to buy food, pick up medicine, or exercise outdoors at For up-to-date COVID-19 least six feet away from information and statistics, visit others. Thousands more people are now unemployed in Santa Barbara County alone, with thousands more likely to come, and collective anxiety continues to build, with no known release date from our statewide house arrest. As of press time, there are 24 positive cases in Santa Barbara County, four of whom are fully recovered and 19 recovering at home. The remaining patient is hospitalized.

months, landlords throughout Santa Barbara County will not be allowed to evict tenants who could not pay their rent because the coronavirus knocked the economic legs out from underneath them. The Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors and the Santa Barbara City Council both passed separate proposals on Tuesday, March 24. Although there was considerable County Supervisors Gregg Hart (above) and Das Williams put debate over the implications, forward an eviction moratorium at the county level. both elected bodies voted objections to the proposal. Their concerns unanimously to approve the eviction moratorium. Tenants cannot be could be heard via a squawk box perched evicted, they agreed, since California’s on the council dais.

undocumented workers toil away behind the scenes every day to make Santa Barbara County’s service economy run. Now, due to the coronavirus lockdown, many hotel housekeepers, restaurant dishwashers, and others — sometimes referred to as the “invisible backbone” of our region’s labor force — are out of a job. But unlike their citizen counterparts, they’re not eligible for unemployment insurance, even though their paychecks contribute to the same state unemployment fund. “These workers tend to be the lowest paid and the least likely to be tipped, and they’re subsidizing everyone else’s unemployment,” explained Lucas Zucker, an organizer with CAUSE, the Central Coast Alliance United for a Sustainable Economy. “There’s no real prospect of relief through our current systems. If you’re undocumented, there’s no light at the end of the tunnel.” At some point soon, perhaps between this crisis and the next, the government needs to enact some significant policy change on the issue, Zucker emphasized. Specifically at the state level. “We shouldn’t hold our breath for the federal government.” Farmworkers are one of the few groups that have been spared this time around, Zucker added. Like grocery store employees, they fall in the essential category. But with schools closed, childcare is a major problem for many of them. “If you’re a farmworker, you don’t have the money to hire a babysitter or nanny,” Zucker said. “The only thing you can afford is group childcare, but that’s all shut down.” Then there are the self-
employed, such as domestic workers, who face serious financial uncertainty as long as shelter-at-home and socialdistancing orders are in place. To help fill in some of these gaps, CAUSE has relaunched 805 Undocufund (805undocufund.org), a collective effort among Ventura and Santa Barbara organizations to assist people excluded from government safety-net programs. Formed after the Thomas Fire and 1/9 Debris Flow, the fund distributed over

$2.3 million in aid to thousands of families, providing 425 volunteers and setting up 39 health clinics, as well. Meanwhile, the National Domestic Worker Alliance (domesticworkers.org) has created the Coronavirus Care Fund to support workers across the country. A host of other Santa Barbara groups, including El Centro, the Fund for Santa Barbara, Future Leaders of America, La Casa de la Raza, and Santa Barbara County Promotores Network, also cosigned a letter to regional government leaders asking for their help. “Disasters lay bare the inequities already existing in our society,” the letter reads. “We urge you to maintain this consideration throughout your response to the challenges before us and to stay attuned to the needs of those who have less and hurt more.” n
Boys & Girls Clubs
Double Down on Free Meals
hen public schools shut down
in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the first thing Michael Baker worried about was food insecurity for the 3,500 members of the United Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Barbara County, which he runs. “Food insecurity — it’s a very big deal,” he said. Accordingly, he instructed all the club directors to work with the school district and the Foodbank to make sure free meals would still be provided at club locations. This Monday, 170 free brown-bag lunches were passed out at the Westside club by Bohnett Park. Ninety-seven percent of public-school students in that neighborhood, Baker noted, qualify for free or reduced-rate meals. At 10:15 Monday morning, March 23, a INDEPENDENT.COM
long line of people were already waiting outside the Lompoc club, even though the lunch program didn’t open until 1 in the afternoon. “This is not good,” Baker said. “I see it in the parents’ eyes. I see the look. It’s just despair.” The sudden violence of the pandemic is hard to comprehend. For about 10 years, Baker noted, the economy hummed along; the cost of living was undoubtedly high, but unemployment was low. “In just eight days, everything changed,” he said. “Just eight days.” Because so many people found themselves suddenly unemployed, many kids have at least one parent at home with whom they can shelter in place. “That’s not good news,” he said. “But it’s something.”

Our family traveled to London and Amsterdam last month and arrived home February 23. A few days later, my husband, our 12-year-old son, and I had what we thought were allergies. My husband’s and my symptoms subsided, but my son developed a fever on March 13. It went up to 102 degrees and lasted for three days. He also had a headache, runny nose, and lots of coughing. I found CottageCare, which provides an online appointment screening for $29. I was hopeful that he could be tested since he had been in school and was active throughout our community prior to the fever onset. Unfortunately, the CottageCare doctor said that he wasn’t eligible since he did not have contact with an infected person. I’m left wondering: How would one know if they were in contact if our community is being denied testing?

country, Santa Barbara physicians are struggling to identify cases of COVID-19 due to a chronic shortage of tests. They’ve been forced to save their limited supply of kits for only the sickest and oldest patients and tell others to ride out their symptoms at home. This has caused considerable anxiety throughout the community. No one blames the doctors and nurses themselves—who have been working long hours under considerable pressure—yet the frustration remains. These are four stories from residents who think they or a loved one may be infected but can’t get tested. At their request for privacy, their names have been changed.

My 82-year-old father was taken by ambulance from my parents’ home on March 16 with COVID-19 symptoms—a cough, chills, fever, and other flu-like symptoms. He is at extremely high risk as an older adult with diabetes and lung disease. It took over 12 hours at the hospital to get him into a room. The hospital did a CT scan and said he likely has metapneumovirus, an upper respiratory infection, and therefore they did not need to test him. But from what I understand, a CT scan cannot definitively rule out coronavirus. The hospital felt overwhelmed and understaffed. I should mention that neither the ambulance EMTs nor doctors were wearing protective gear, despite my mother warning them of a potential COVID-19 case. My father was discharged the next day.

Santa Barbara physicians are struggling to identify cases of COVID-19 due to a chronic shortage of tests.
According to my mother, the nurses told him, “If you’re feeling better, we could really use the bed.” We are still worried about him, and the experience has been exhausting and infuriating.
My girlfriend returned to Goleta at the beginning of March from studying abroad in Europe and has all the symptoms of the coronavirus. But her doctor said she can’t get tested because she’s only 21 and doesn’t have other health problems. I’m very concerned because she lives with two other roommates. She has been self-isolating, but they have not, and now one of them is also sick. He can’t get tested either.
I am a 68-year-old Santa Barbara resident. In the middle of last week, I started experiencing COVID-19 symptoms. I have a deep cough, fatigue, and a fever between 100 and 102. I called my doctor, and he said I should get tested for COVID based on my symptoms and being in contact with a high-risk person (my 94-year-old mother) the week prior (before we understood how serious this is). A COVID-19 screening nurse from the hospital called with a questionnaire. She ran through my symptoms—check, check, check—but when she got to the final three questions (if I had traveled to China, South Korea, or Italy in the last two weeks; if I had any underlying health issue; or if I had been in contact with a positive case), I answered no. The nurse said I scored 4 out of 5 on the questionnaire so was not eligible for testing. The doctors and nurses have been very helpful, but I don’t understand the questionnaire. Unless you answer yes to one of the last three questions, you won’t be tested. But because there has been so little testing, how is a person supposed to know if they have been in contact with a positive case? I might be infected and I might have given n it to my mother. It’s very scary.

If you are reading this, we need your help. Even if you aren’t, we need your help urgently. And now. Normally, I hate writing letters like this. But the new reality that confronts us all—a mix of 9/11, the Dust Bowl, and the Black Death—is not remotely normal. If the Santa Barbara Independent is to continue doing its job — sifting fact from fiction in the onslaught of a pandemic that was both predictable but unimaginable—we need the resources to keep reporters on staff. Or, to steal a line from Woody Guthrie — do re mi. Even the Washington Post—owned by the richest man on the planet —is shrinking. When everything is canceled and shut down, who is left to advertise? But without advertising revenues, traditional papers tend to dry up and blow away. Journalism — nationwide — was already fighting for its life, before this withering wind struck. In this context, we at the Independent had been relatively blessed. But such blessings only go only so far. Now we need help. Facts, it turns out, are not nearly as simple as they might appear. How many tests have been administered in Santa Barbara County? How many ventilators do Santa Barbara County health officials have at their disposal? What is the plan for when “the surge” strikes? These are simple questions to ask. Getting straight answers, however, can be more difficult. It’s time-consuming. It’s expensive. And we’re not done yet. Not by a long shot. In the past two weeks, the Independent has received hundreds and hundreds of tips. Some are nothing more than wild rumors. Some reflect panic run amok. But many others have highlighted serious gaps in the medical supply chain. Or tell of dangerous corner-cutting at the expense of the vulnerable. Tracking these down is often difficult, but always time consuming. It’s what reporters do every day. To restate the obvious, today is anything but “everyday.” We are asking those who rely on us for news to subscribe or donate to the Independent. A yearly subscription costs $29.99. That’s less than $3 a month. For a publication that does a better-than-passable impersonation of publishing both a daily and weekly newspaper, I have to say, that’s ridiculously cheap. For those of you out there lucky enough to still have a well-paying job — or have some discretionary money jangling around in your sock drawer — we are asking more. For the last two years, Santa Barbara County Action Network (SBCAN) has sponsored a journalism fellowship for young writers eager to learn reporting skills. In this present crisis, SBCAN, in line with its mission to promote social justice and protect the environment, is graciously expanding this program to support environmental and social justice journalism. To help fund this program, we are asking our readers to donate $100 or more. It will be a tax-deductible donation. Through your generosity, reporters will receive a fellowship that will allow them to continue their work here at the Independent. I wouldn’t ask if we didn’t need it.

Sheltering in Place for
Unsheltered by Nick Welsh and Brian Osgood
en Ralph was finally able to
take his show to the Earl Warren Showgrounds this Tuesday, providing showers and food to about 30-50 homeless people who would otherwise go unwashed and unfed. In the past five years, Ralph — a great believer in the transformative powers of a hot shower, clean underpants, and fresh socks — has provided 25,000 such showers in seven different locations around the county to those down on their luck via his nonprofit, Showers of Blessing. Then COVID-19 struck. The March 24 event at the showgrounds turned out to be only a one-time event, but Ralph is determined to keep his program going. Even though most of his volunteers now have to regretfully stay home, and even though the Bay Area shower program, the largest in the state, had to close down, Ralph is not giving up. Continuing at the showgrounds proved impossible because of conflicting government agency requirements. But Ralph is taking extra precautions, even though the operation is down to three employees and one volunteer. After every shower, all shower stalls are cleaned with a strong dose of Lysol by staff dressed in bodysuits designed for house painters as well as masks, goggles, and gloves. All potential clients are screened for fever; no one with a temperature over 100 degrees is allowed. Ever since Santa Barbara started taking COVID-19 seriously, the need for Ralph’s effluvial ministrations has increased exponentially. All the local gyms that once provided shower facilities to the many Santa Barbarans who live in their vehicles have closed, as have the public library bathrooms where many without shelter used sinks to take “bird baths.” The numbers of those
displaced are conjectural, but they easily exceed 300. Ralph has long argued that people who can clean themselves are more likely to take care of themselves. Throw in clean underpants — bamboo boxers from China and white cotton socks — and they’re further down the road to recovery. That this has become a matter of life and death is now only a slight exaggeration. People without housing are more prone to infections such as the coronavirus. They are also more likely to spread it. How can people without shelter follow Governor Gavin Newsom’s order to shelter in place? A recent Santa Barbara report shows that the number of homeless people living on the streets and in their vehicles has grown by 150 since last year — and the number who reported being chronically homeless increased 45 percent. These people, many of whom suffer from addiction and mentalhealth problems, are far more susceptible to infections while living on the streets. Worse is that the virus arrived with the cold winter rains, creating an urgent demand on the limited shelter space. Social distancing — keeping a six-foot distance between individuals — has not been possible in most shelters. Though many maintain the traditional three-foot separation between cots, they now arrange it so one person’s head lines up against the next person’s feet. This is as close as shelters can get to a six-foot degree of separation. “The shelter-in-place model is going to really reduce our capacity,” said Rolf Geyling of the Santa Barbara Rescue Mission, which runs a 200-bed facility. About 120 individuals use the overnight shelter, but 70 are enrolled in its drug and alcohol recovery programs which, according to Geyling, are tough to run when people can’t meet. To date, at least one homeless person

About 120 car dwellers are currently enrolled in the Safe Parking program run by New Beginnings, with 100 more on the waiting list. New Beginnings currently provides parking spaces in 24 parking lots scattered throughout the South Coast. Typically, these lots have porta-potties available, but only during the night hours. With the closure of the South Coast’s gyms; the downtown public library where 70 homeless people go each day; and the Virgil Cordano Center, which has had about 30 daily visitors, a lot of people have suddenly found themselves with no place to go or to shower during the day. Around City Hall, the crisis has again raised the question: Should the city provide porta-potties for those living on the streets, or should city restrooms in parks be kept open at night? The city has told homeless advocates that it would cost City Hall $1,200 a day. And that doesn’t mean, city officials insist, that homeless people will use them. Fecal deposits found between two parked cars in city parking lots have become so common that maintenance workers have given it a name: “Code Brown.” Either way, restrooms in city parks have taken such

During the crisis, Governor Newsom empowered county governments to impound hotel and motel rooms.

Reining in Cannabis Tax Scofflaws County Will Use State’s “Track-and-Trace” Inventory for 60 days
250 state cannabis licenses in unincorporated areas, beginning later this year. The state tracks the bar codes that are embedded in cannabis plants and products, following the crop throughout the commercial supply chain. Access to this database, Melekian said, will allow an auditing firm contracted by the county to check whether a grower’s self-reported tax revenues line up with the number of his plants. A mismatch, he said, could indicate that the grower is selling on the black market in California or diverting cannabis illegally to other states. Monterey and Yolo counties also will participate in the pilot program. In the future, the state is expected to expand local access to Track-and-Trace data throughout California. Tax rates for cannabis in Santa Barbara County are as follows: one percent of gross revenues for nurseries and distributors, 3 percent for manufacturers, 4 percent for growers, and 6 percent for retailers and microbusinesses. Melekian reported that from July 1 to December 31 — the first six months of the current fiscal year—Santa Barbara County collected $4.8 million in tax revenues from cannabis. That’s a 50 percent increase over the first six months of fiscal year 2018-2019, when the county collected only $3.2 million. “People are doing a more accurate job of reporting, and there is more growth and more sales,” Melekian said. “The first two quarters of fiscal year 2018-2019, everybody was just getting their feet under them. County tax collection is more efficient now.” Forty-eight cannabis operators reported zero gross receipts and paid no taxes during
About 4,500 gallons of crude oil spilled into the Cuyama River above Twitchell Reservoir, the main source of water for Santa Maria, after a tanker truck rumbled off State Route 166 and tumbled down a riverbank the morning of March 21. A containment boom and earth dams constructed 2.1 miles downstream prevented the oil from reaching the reservoir. Cleanup work continues. The driver was uninjured in the solo vehicle accident.
TRACKING AND TRACING: The county has put growers on notice that it will withdraw its “letter of authorization” for cannabis state business licenses if they fail to pay county taxes, said Barney Melekian (above), assistant county executive officer.
by Melinda Burns ome cannabis operators in Santa Barbara County still don’t pay taxes, but there are signs that the county is closing in on them. Of 106 licensed cannabis growers and processors in county unincorporated areas, 15 failed to report their gross revenues from October 1 to December 31, according to a recent update for the county Board of Supervisors. That’s down from 22 tax scofflaws in the previous quarter. The county has put growers on notice that it will withdraw its “letter of authorization” for cannabis state business licenses if they fail to pay county taxes, said Barney Melekian, assistant county executive officer. “The word went out that we were paying attention to that,” he said, adding that one grower was forced to surrender his state license and shut down last month; two other growers promptly paid up, and a fourth has been summoned to a county administrative hearing. With 1,164 active state licenses for cannabis, Santa Barbara County is second in California only to Humboldt County in its embrace of the lucrative crop. The rapid influx of industrialscale “grows” into the scenic Santa Ynez and Carpinteria valleys in recent years has produced an outcry for better enforcement and stricter regulations. On Tuesday, the board authorized Melekian’s office to draw up a memorandum of understanding with the state Department of Food and Agriculture for use of its “Trackand-Trace” database for 60 days. As part of this pilot program, the county will investigate
the most recent quarter, from October 1 to December 31, 2019—but that’s likely because outdoor grows were dormant and some nurseries had no sales, Melekian said. Here, too, he said, the state Track-and-Trace data will help the county determine whether growers are telling the truth. Meanwhile, raids on illegal cannabis operations slowed dramatically from October 1 to December 31, partly because of the scope and complexity of ongoing investigations, Melekian said. The county Sheriff ’s Office confiscated and destroyed only 100 marijuana plants and 74 pounds of dried marijuana worth $79,000. During fiscal year 2018-2019, county records show, the department confiscated 985,000 plants and 65,000 pounds of dried marijuana valued at $288 million in all. By comparison, licensed growers reported only $169 million in gross revenues to the county that year. Every cannabis grower must obtain state and county business licenses; every landowner must obtain a county zoning permit. To date, records show, the county has issued permits for cultivation on 221 acres in inland areas and 22 acres in coastal areas. Last year, responding to a barrage of citizen complaints about the pungent skunklike smell from cannabis, the county set caps of 1,575 acres and 186 acres of cultivation in inland and coastal areas, respectively. A total of 156 permit applications are pending in various stages of county review. They would cover more than 2,000 acres— hundreds more than what is allowed under the county caps. n
Electrical wires owned by Southern California Edison, high winds, and tree branches started the Holiday Fire 14 months ago, investigators reported on 3/20. The fire, which broke out on July 6, 2018, at around 8:30 p.m., was spurred by 30 mph sundowners and a heat that eerily rose as night fell. It destroyed 10 homes and 13 other structures, damaged three homes, and forced the evacuation of much of the Goleta foothills, as well as a wildlife rescue, as it burned across 113 acres. The Rincon Bluffs Preserve, a scenic oceanfront property zoned for a destination resort at the eastern edge of Carpinteria, is slated to be transferred this week to the city and managed forever as public open space. The city is expected to close escrow on 3/37 on the 22-acre preserve at the junction of Carpinteria Avenue and Highway 150, purchasing it for $945,000 from the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County. On 3/24, the county Board of Supervisors approved the final $145,000 for the purchase, using oil and gas project monies. The state Coastal Conservancy and Natural Resources Agency contributed the remaining $800,000.

Dog Handlers of the Apocalypse
GRAZED AND CONFUSED: For the time being, I’m blaming the sheep. It must have
been their fault. Not mine. I mention this in response to a confab of assorted Big Wigs and the county’s public health officer, Dr. Henning Ansorg, who convened earlier this week. The Big Wigs —elected officials from all over the county map—were decidedly not happy. The antiCOVID-19 lockdown was not working. They had wanted to see tumbleweeds skittering down the streets of Santa Barbara County’s most cosmopolitan of metropolises. I get their point. Despite strict instructions that everyone place themselves on house arrest, clusters of citizens were out and about all weekend. Maybe no one was frolicking,
but we were quietly reveling in one of those whiplash-inducing collisions of light and air that make Santa Barbara’s property values so excruciatingly spectacular. For the briefest of seconds, we could not hear the Four Horsemen of the Apocalyptus. The Fat Lady was not singing. And then, of course, there were the sheep. Grazing happily on top of the hills overlooking Las Positas — now Elings — Park were about 200 sheep, imported from the high-plains tundra of the Cuyama Valley, fattening up on the grasslands of a former city dump. One day, those sheep will be served on a plate with baby carrots swimming in a fjord of truffle oil. (See, I can write foodie.)
But for the time being, these sheep, baby and otherwise, were rewriting world record books in terms of contented cuteness. Certainly, the hilltop views of the mountains and the sea —sublimely ridiculous in their own right— didn’t hurt either. Ansorg, not yet a year into his gig as the county’s Top Cop for public health, clearly had no chance. But the Big Wigs wanted action. They wanted chests thumped,
tables pounded, and messages delivered
with absolute and unequivocal clarity. But that is not Ansorg, a soulful, intelligent doctor endowed with an abundance of reticence and streaks of sly humor. Where the Big Wigs wanted black-and-white, Ansorg projects gray. Where the Big Wigs want faster-hardermore-now, Ansorg projects nuance and caution. In public forums, Ansorg appears to measure his words as if they were as scarce as COVID-19 test kits.
It’s more than that. Earlier last week, Ansorg recommended all bars and restaurants be shut down. Shortly thereafter, the Santa Barbara City Council mandated that bars and restaurants—along with a host of other enterprises — be closed. Later last week, Ansorg ordered everyone 75 and older to shelter in place in their homes. Less than an hour later, Governor Gavin Newsom ordered everyone in the state—except for those engaged in essential functions such as news reporting and running pot shops —to shelter in place. Muckety-mucks at City
College still grumble that they would have
pulled the plug sooner on classes if not for how long Ansorg made them wait. Personally, I appreciate Ansorg’s candor. At the many public presentations intended to inform and reassure the public, one doctor wearing a white lab coat can be counted on to wax rhapsodic about all the COVID-19 test kits soon to arrive, while Ansorg consistently talks about how serious the acute shortage of equipment actually is. Reality is always a mixed message. Why should we expect otherwise? The real problem, I think, has been the lack of clear information. Initially, reporters beat their heads against the wall trying to get reliable information about how many
tests have been administered to Santa Barbara residents. It took a little more than a
week to get that straightened out. As it did to determine the exact the number of ventilators available in the county, a fact seemingly essential for any meaningful surge planning. After asking the same question past the point of obnoxiousness, I was notified last week that the county didn’t track that info. I couldn’t believe it. Later that day — when Assemblymember Monique Limón asked the same question at a virtual town hall forum—we heard the number was 32 with another 18 soon to be arriving. But how many hospital beds would we need? How serious is the shortage of protective gear? Naturally, there’s no metric
available for either. Again, I get it. However much we have, we know it won’t be nearly enough. Even when we get more—which we no doubt will—it still won’t be close. But I like crisp metrics and tidy projections. They give me the illusion that someone knows what they’re doing. In such times, such illusions are necessary. No one really knows. We’re all just figuring it out. But the Big Wigs are getting restless. They want more information released about the 24 (as of this writing) people in the county who tested positive. Right now, Ansorg’s
office is releasing only the most general data — the age bracket and whether they hail from North or South County. Whether any are medical professionals or county jail inmates —as has been widely rumored by seemingly credible sources — we will not be told out of deference to patient privacy. Likewise for more specific info as to where they reside. Ansorg’s information policy is in line with Kern and San Bernardino counties, among the most withholding in the state. This has the Big Wigs bugged. Cops aren’t going
to enforce against social distancing violators. Neither is the sheriff. If the public knows
what cities our positives come from, the Big Wigs think, other residents living there will be scared into complying more with the governor’s order to shelter in place. Therein lies our challenge. What do they think we are, sheep?

Safety in Our Hands
hank you to Santa Barbara County’s public health officer, Dr. Henning Ansorg, for his statements regarding every citizen’s responsibility to respect the directive to maintain social distancing. We have an opportunity now to make a difference in slowing the spread of the COVID-19 virus. If we wait until it is even more obvious to act, it will be too late. As a retired nurse, I know that some of the real heroes in this war are the medical personnel we will depend on if we get sick. We cannot let our irresponsible use of personal freedoms put them and our entire health system at risk of breakdown and collapse. I hope that our county government will monitor and enforce social distancing, including closing down everything but essential services. Please do this. Please do this now. I would implore every one of us to stay home, wash your hands, and get on board with this fight. We need to watch out for our neighbors, stay informed, and support each other as best we can.

Dogs Sneeze Safely
have heard that dogs are being left at our local animal shelters as their owners believe that humans can get the coronavirus COVID-19 from their dog. According to the Centers for Disease Control, there is no evidence that any animal other than the human variety can have this virus. Obviously, if the CDC has its facts right, these poor dogs are being relinquished for no reason. I dread to think of the suffering to both the dogs and to the children that have no choice but to lose their pet. —Hazel Mortensen, Solvang
Hands: Folded, not Shaken
he best way to practice social distancing is to stay away from big groups of people. At the same time, if you need to greet or wish someone well, the best way is through the time-tested Himalayan folded-hands greeting. The people across the Himalayan regions even now greet each other through folded hands rather than through
handshake, thereby vastly reducing the chances of viral infection via hand touch. Here is the meaning of folded hand greetings: Two thumbs represent wisdom and methods. Our 10 fingers represent the community of people from 10 directions. Folding of both the hands represent the unity of the people. The final the shape of the folded hand represents the wish-fulfilling gem and liberation from the suffering. Not only is this a scientific and hygienic way of greeting others, but it also has a noble and holistic meaning. If you need to greet others, always greet with a folded hand even after the end of this pan—Thepo Tulku, S.B. demic.

Joan Georges Breen 4/26/1933 – 3/4/2020
Joan Georges Breen, beloved daughter, sister, mother, grandmother, aunt, two-time cancer survivor, and friend to many, passed away peacefully on March 4, 2020 at the age of 86. Born in Minneapolis, MN on April 26, 1933, Joan was the second of three daughters to Selma Falck Carlson and Alfred Carlson. She was married to Robert Georges and they had two sons, Douglas and Peter. They moved from Minnesota to Goleta in 1960 where she resided for 35 years. Joan was fiercely determined to succeed in her career path. She worked for a multitude of local companies: RBR Concrete Contractors, Inc., Ko-Art Homes, Inc., Bottiani Properties, LLC, and McMahan’s Furniture as an accountant. Driven to excel even further, Joan put herself through college. She graduated with both a Bachelors and a Masters degree in Accounting from the UCLA extension at UCSB. She then worked as a licensed CPA for Faletti, Knapp, and Jarabin, LLP, eventually retiring from the firm as a Partner. Joan met her soulmate, James Breen, and the two wed in 1981. They shared 27 wonderful years until his passing in 2008. Joan and Jim loved traveling in their RV and made a point to visit most every state in it. They moved from Goleta to Squaw Valley, CA, in 1995 where they built the home of their dreams to quietly live out their golden years. Joan was a woman of many hobbies, and she always had a way to keep herself occupied. She loved crafting, knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, completing daily crossword puzzles, playing her organ, watching Jeopardy!, and gardening. As a CPA, she had a penchant for assisting clients with tax preparation and did so until her very last days. She enjoyed cooking and entertaining for her family and friends, always kept her home immaculate, and loved herself a good libation. 18
Joan was preceded in death by her parents, sisters Patty Carlson and Elaine Lancaster, first husband Bob Georges, husband Jim Breen, and daughter Ranae Breen Dean. She leaves behind her children, Doug Georges (Elaine) of Goleta, Pete Georges of Squaw Valley, Jeannette Wright of Rancho Santa Margarita, and Jim Breen (Valerie) of Costa Mesa.

John Hudson McKnight 1/7/1943 – 3/10/2020
John Hudson McKnight, age 77, of Santa Barbara, passed away peacefully Tuesday, March 10, 2020, as a result of ongoing health complications. A life-long resident of Santa Barbara, John was born on January 7, 1943. He was the only child of Harold and Ethel McKnight, both of whom preceded him in death. John attended Franklin elementary, Santa Barbara Junior High and Santa Barbara High School. After high school, he proudly served as an electrician assistant in the United States Navy. Upon completion of his military service, John continued his education at Santa Barbara City College, where he met and later married the love of his life, Susan (Sue) Green, to whom he was married for fifty years, and who preceded him in death two years ago. John was highly intelligent and had many skills and abilities. As a young man, he spent time as a Boxer in Hawaii, where he ranked 9 th best in his weight class. John also served as a Santa Barbara County Firefighter. His greatest gift, however, was as a talented artist. He designed and created the stained glass art and famous “Coca Cola” lamps for Machet of Santa Barbara. John’s talent was recognized by Disney, as he was commissioned by them to do several special projects. In his later career, John held management positions with local newspapers, including the Santa Barbara News Press, until his retirement on January 06, 2006 Having no children of their own, Sue and John’s closest family were Sue’s younger twin sisters, who loved and looked up to John since they were 5 years old.
John leaves behind “his twin sisters,” Lori Lee Green-Stade, her husband Kevin, their children Kadie and Nicholas Stade and Patti Sue Green, her son Shawn I collingo, and Patti’s grandson Ryder Hudson Incollingo-Cooklin (named after his great Uncle John), closest cousin Noreen Brent, along with many lifelong friends. A celebration of life will take place in the near future once it is deemed safe and the International health crisis has passed. An update will be published at that time. John was passionate about many things; closest to his heart were animals, especially his kitties, which gave him great joy, history, nature and music. In lieu of flowers, John would much prefer for those who are able, that a donation be made to: “ResQue Cats” of Santa Barbara”, or your local animal shelter. John was a kind, gentle and generous soul,who touched and influenced many. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
Stephen W. Sagady 7/17/1950 – 2/21/2020
Stephen Sagady, 69, died on February 21, 2020, of a heart attack. He leaves his husband and partner of more than 14 years, Jared (Jay) Pitard of San Diego, his two children, Victoria and Crystal Sagady, his daughter-in-law Christina, his cousins Pierre and Vicki Mathieu, as well as his ex-wife and best friend Mayri SagadyLeslie. He also leaves behind his eight birds, for which he shared parenting duties with his husband. Born in Michigan, the son of William and Louise Sagady, Steve (as he was known by friends and family) was always passionate about science and engineering, even as a young child. He graduated Cum Laude from Cal Poly in 1973 with a degree in Electronic Engineering as well as an Associate degree in Science from Santa Barbara City College. After college, he worked as a lighting technician and
audio engineer at several theaters in Santa Barbara and Los Angeles. The theater brought Steve together with Mayri, whom he would marry and raise his children with, as well as form their own theater company Process Theatre. Not long after, Steve’s hobby of amateur radio DJing would lead him to a job in Ojai California at Two:Dot Recording where he would realize his true passion of audio and video engineering. From there he went on to work around the country building and designing television studios and post production facilities. At the time of his death, Steve was Co-Owner and Chief Technology Officer of Pacific Design and Integration (PDI), and GovTV. Steve was an avid astronomer having belonged to the Santa Barbara Astronomy Club along with his oldest daughter Victoria. Both his children fondly remember many nights looking up at the stars with him and learning about constellations and the universe around them. Steve continued this love the rest of his life, shooting celestial events and the night skies to produce beautiful time-lapse footage which he shared with the world through his company Crystal Visions, Inc. His time-lapse earned him a Daytime Emmy Award for special effects as well as a Cable Ace Award. Steve had a great love for Science Fiction, something which he shared with his husband. Together they spent many nights watching Doctor Who, Star Trek, Grimm, and other Sci-Fi shows and movies. He was also a yearly San Diego ComicCon attendee with his daughter Crystal for the past 19 years, and loved exploring the exhibition hall, seeing the cosplay and costumes, and talking to the artists about the comics and artwork he found there. Anyone who knew Steve would also know of his dedication and support for the ManKind Project. He participated in and supported many parts of MKP for the last 20 years of his life, both locally and internationally, making many dear friends and having a positive influence on all of the lives he touched through this organization. He leaves many brother warriors behind. There will be no funeral or services at this time. Instead the family will be hosting a Celebration of Life at a later date.
Laura Elizabeth Kath
Lt. Colonel Ret. David Blanchard Talbott
1931 – 2019
Love and Light
BY M A R Y H A R R I S
smile so wide that it seemed to go on forever. The Laura I knew had a smile and a kind word for everyone, be that person a close friend or a total stranger. In that smile was gathered a life of giving, while also masking a life of pain. Laura Kath, the consummate professional communicator, left us just shy of her 60th birthday, but her legacy will light up Santa Barbara County for years to come. A native of Michigan and a proud Michigan State alumna, Laura made Santa Barbara her home for more than 35 years. Sole owner of Mariah Marketing, she pioneered and championed many Santa Barbara institutions, making them better than they would have been without her exacting care. No newspaper or TV station ever doubted that Laura’s press releases were accurate, timely, and full of colorful detail: No fact-checking needed. Laura was always there, following up to make sure the 4 a.m. press conference for the Amgen Tour of California time trials in Solvang were as carefully executed as the red-carpet debut of Sideways. She saw the tourism potential of the Santa Ynez Valley before many others and made sure her beloved Los Alamos was included in what became the Santa Ynez Valley Visitors Association, now VisitSYV. For many years, she was the editor of the Solvang and Santa Ynez Valley Visitor Guide. Her “radio voice” articulation and folksy humor were lent graciously to announce numerous Solvang parades and the annual Los Alamos Old Days parade. Representing Santa Barbara, the Santa Ynez Valley, and Solvang at tourism trade shows throughout the country, her unflagging, energetic presentation of our county earned her a deep respect and gratitude. It was perhaps in her enthusiasm for her clients that her work reflected her personal values. Bringing light to darkness would be a lifelong mantra, and she always went to the most amazing lengths to make sure that her information was clear, accurate, and interesting. And she would correct anything that was wrong: She was relentless in making sure partial closures of Highway 154 did not cut off the Santa Ynez Valley from the north; she knew how to get to Caltrans better than anyone. Laura’s clients included the Santa Ynez Valley Hospital Foundation, Circle V Ranch, St. Mark’sin-the-Valley Episcopal Church, and the Solvang Conference and Visitors Bureau, among others. For her clients, she always went the extra mile to make sure that their events got the coverage she felt they merited. For Santa Barbara’s unique Car-Free program, she made sure that Amtrak and the local cycling community, as well as the local hotels and restaurants, were well and truly represented. Over the years, her Rolodex morphed into her online media list, which was always up to date and personalized. Along came blogging, Twitter, and Instagram, and Laura was right on top of the best, latest way to communicate her clients’ messages to diverse audiences. The full measure of her professionalism was only matched by her winning personality, a dynamite duo in one tall bundle of energy.
Her lifelong struggles with arthritis encouraged her enthusiastic embrace of the Arthritis Foundation Central Coast Chapter, which she served as a boardmember. She received their Mary G. Kendall Award for Outstanding Service in 1998 and in 2005, a Community Hero designation. Other volunteer efforts were directed to the Los Alamos Men’s Club, the Santa Barbara Book and Author Festival, and other county organizations. A prolific author, Laura penned 19 books, including The Upham Hotel: Celebrating 125 Years of Santa Barbara Hospitality; San Ysidro Ranch: A Century of Legendary Hospitality; and Elvis Presley’s Graceland: The Official Guidebook. At the celebration of Laura’s life at St. Mark’s-in-the-Valley Episcopal Church in Los Olivos on February 29, family members and the Reverend Dr. Randall Day spoke eloquently of Laura as an aunt, sister, partner, member of the congregation, and friend. Her 10-year-old great-nephew Eli Kath recited with his father, John, a poem he’d written, which seemed to sum up Laura’s life and moved many to tears. A Lifetime of Rough Life is full of many things Some are bright and some are dim Times that are great and others we call rough Those are the things that make us tough. Holding your backpack is always a pain Getting lost on a dark and scary lane A birthday party and no one will arrive Having a loved one struggling to survive Leaping off a wall into a prickly bush Facing a bully and getting a push Having a needle stuck in your thumb Being so cold your face feels numb The lesson we seek from this list of pain Is that oysters make pearls and flowers need rain. Learning from things in life that are rough Help make us shine and help make us tough. Laura celebrated with each of us, for whatever length of our relationship with her, sending “Natal Anniversary” greetings each year on our birthdays, making sure we knew of the arrival of each full moon (and its precise name), and of the spring glory of wild flowers on Figueroa Mountain. Knowing the pain she was enduring through her final years, it was a source of amazement to all that her indomitable spirit never seemed to waver. She relied on the constant support of her partner, Jeffrey Marsh; her family and faith; and a steady contingent of medical personnel, whom she never ceased to praise. A final spiritual hymn at the Celebration of Life summed up what many of us will remember about Laura, and what she would want us to remember: Let the life I’ve lived speak for me Let the life I’ve lived speak for me When I come to the end of this road, And I lay down my heavy load, Let the life I’ve lived speak for me.

MARCH 26, 2020
It’s MY Party and I’ll Self-Quarantine If I Want To
turned 35 the other day. It was a quiet observance — ragù and red wine alone with my wife — but that’s just fine. I’m not a big birthday guy anyway. And it was definitely memorable. That’s because I’m under self-quarantine after a brush with the coronavirus. It happened two weeks ago on an assignment. I met a new colleague, and we shook hands (stupidly, in retrospect), then shared an umbrella. Soon after, she called to say her young daughter, potentially infected by a traveler, had come down with serious COVID-19 symptoms. Doctors tested her on Saturday, March 14, and promised the results would be ready the next Saturday, March 21. But as of Tuesday, March 24, we were still waiting…. My office told me to stay away in the meantime. At first, I wasn’t sure what else I should do. Completely isolate myself? Tell other people I’d been in contact with? Or just calm down and go about my life? I sought advice from the county’s crisis-time Call Center ( 688-5551). They couldn’t offer specific directions in my case — a mere close call a couple of steps removed — and recommended generally erring on the side of caution. So that’s what I did. I hunkered down, and I told the friends and family I’d recently seen there was a chance — albeit a small one — they’d been exposed. The reactions ranged from mild curiosity to outright alarm. I still wonder if it was the right move or if I just caused unnecessary worry. At least now they know. Otherwise, I would’ve felt like I was hiding something. Working from home has its upsides. It’s quiet. It’s comfortable. I do a lot of this typing semi-reclined in a La-Z-Boy. During my lunch breaks, I catch up with neighbors. We shout at each other from the ends of our driveways. Pesky chores are quicker to finish and long projects are easier to start. Seeds are now sprouting in an egg carton, and the

shelf ’s most daunting book is finally cracked. But there are downsides, too. I feel like I’m letting my paper down. I’m starting to go a little stir-crazy. The kitchen is in shambles. The cats aren’t respecting my boundaries. I haven’t put on shoes in three days. And I’ve had to remind myself in moments of antsiness that this voluntary house arrest isn’t meant to protect me. I’m young-ish and healthy, and even if I were to get sick with COVID-19, I’d probably be okay. It’s meant to protect the people who wouldn’t be okay — the partner of a friend with advanced kidney disease, the 95-year-old grandma of a coworker, the fragile person I don’t know who could pick up my germs from a railing on Stearns Wharf or a door handle at CVS. That fact gets lost in all the novel coronavirus noise. The whole point of staying home and limiting your contact with other people — doing your part to “flatten the curve” — is to delay and space out the inevitable. Because, according to health experts, a huge chunk of the American population will contract the coronavirus in the next year or two. Some estimates put it as high as 150 million people, or 46 percent of the United States. German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned last week that up to 70 percent of her country could get it. The strategy across the globe and right here in Santa Barbara isn’t to entirely stop the spread — that’s impossible at this point — but to meter the infection rate so hospitals like Cottage can care for a trickle of patients instead of being overwhelmed by a flood of emergencies. It’s the speed at which the pandemic plays out that will dictate the severity of its impact. That’s why governments are enacting the extreme measures we’re seeing now. Whatever our directives are over the coming weeks and months, including the state’s shelter-at-
Staying Home Sucks, But It’s the Right Thing to Do by Tyler Hayden
home order, we should all take them very, very seriously. Because even if you’re not personally at risk, it’s your job, for the sake of others, to keep the outbreak in slow motion. If you need any more convincing on why radical lockdown policies are necessary and why we should follow them, check out the report published online by Imperial College in London. It’s astonishing, and it’s what triggered the sudden increase in response from leaders across the U.S., including Governor Gavin Newsom and our own Public Health Department. Here’s a summary: British researchers working with the World Health Organization plugged infection and death rates from China, Korea, and Italy into epidemic modeling software and ran a simulation on what would happen if the United States did absolutely nothing in response to COVID-19, if we treated it like the regular flu and let it take its course. The simulation showed that 80 percent of Americans would get the disease in a matter of months and 0.9 percent of them would die. Between 4 and 8 percent of everyone over the age of 70 would die. Overall, 2.2 million Americans would perish. The researchers ran the numbers again, this time assuming decision-makers adopted soft “mitigation” strategies like the kinds we were seeing two weeks ago, including only symptomatic cases going into isolation and people practicing social distancing. In that scenario, the death rate would be cut in half, but the virus would still kill 1.1 million Americans. The researchers crunched the numbers a third time with the tougher “suppression” strategies that are now going into effect — school and restaurant closures, bans on public gatherings, work-from-home instructions, and so on. The death rate shrank dramatically. It peaked at a few thousand three weeks from now and then went down. Crisis averted. But a vaccine won’t be available for at least 18 months, the scientists also cautioned. Constant vigilance will become our new way of life. That might mean additional periods of suppression, like lifting restrictions for a month and then reapplying them for two months in a repeating pattern. Our economy and society will be disrupted in profound and lasting ways. It’s grim, but that’s the reality. And the tricky part is if we do everything right, if we heed the warnings and take all the right precautions, not much will happen and it’ll feel like we overreacted. That just means suppression worked. That’s a pandemic for ya. So get ready for a long haul of cozying up at home, or what the Danish in their snowy country call hygge (pronounced “hoo-guh”), treating the extra time inside as an opportunity instead of a hardship. That will be difficult for some and near impossible for others. Kids out of school and workers out of jobs are huge problems. The situation is unprecedented, and unknowns abound. If it’s any consolation, all levels of leadership, from the U.S. Congress to Santa Barbara City Hall, are working at their version of warp speed to give some relief. In the meantime, let’s remember to be patient and gentle with each other. Nerves are frayed, and tempers are short. These are extraordinary times. Being cooped up doesn’t help. And for the best techniques on how to stay sane, talk to indoor cats. They’re the masters of self-isolation. I’ve tried with mine, but no luck so far. They yammer a lot but never get to the point. In fact, they won’t shut up. n TYLER HAYDEN

mid the COVID-19 outbreak, John “The
Restaurant Guy” Dickson is using his considerable connections within Santa Barbara’s dining world to build and continually update a new pickup/delivery guide. This allows customers to continue supporting their favorite restaurants, even when they can’t eat there due to social distancing orders. I asked him a few questions about the project this week, which now includes almost 200 restaurants. What made you decide to start this guide? I have been watching this heartbreaking drama unfold on the news like everyone else. And I read, with great sadness, about restaurants and other businesses closing all across the country. Having run a restaurant news column online and in print for 15 years, I have a lot of contacts with restaurants and communicate daily with foodies, which is an additional source of information that most people don’t have access to. On March 15, I started receiving pleas for help from owners of small restaurants, titans of the local food industry, and many in between. The
John Dickson Discusses SantaBarbara.com ’s COVID-19 Response by Matt Kettmann common theme: “We’re open, doing takeout and delivery, but everyone thinks we’re closed!” So I started writing about it in my blog and in this column, which was my only outlet at the time. Two days later, I received a message from reader Steve V. that read: “I realize it would be a huge undertaking, but can you list the restaurants that have decided to remain open?” It was the first of many similar inquiries that were sent to me that day. I was hesitant to take that on because I knew from experience with my annual Thanksgiving Guide that it would take a week and hundreds of phone calls, and people needed this information yesterday. Reader Peggy F. then sent me a list of third-party services offering delivery and four restaurants that were still open and offering take-
out, so I took her email and created a takeout and delivery guide and posted it on SantaBarbara. com. It was tiny, but it was a start. When I checked my inbox in the morning, there were messages from restaurant owners across the South Coast who had seen my minuscule makeshift list, offering details about their takeout and delivery options, special hours, and other useful details. I started posting these emails, alphabetized by restaurant name, and that became the guide. It’s not fancy, but it contains a lot of very useful information. What are some general themes that you are seeing? They are all very appreciative to have a guide that the community has rallied around during this crisis. They are very mindful about keeping things safe and sanitary. And most of the messages come straight from the owner/ manager, with their own name included at the end, which gives the public confidence that the information is accurate. What are some of the more creative offers? S.Y. Kitchen is selling gift cards where 100 percent of the proceeds go toward their employee relief fund. Pascucci has started their own in-house delivery service at no cost to the customer with minimum purchase. Ike’s Love & Sandwiches is offering a free roll of toilet paper with every order.
Are they staying busy this way? It is hard to tell, but I think so. My restaurant guide reached a high of 37,000 unique visitors in a single day recently — normally, it’s around 5,000. As of this writing, I have had only three restaurants ask me to remove them from the list because they had decided to suspend service: Giovanni’s on State Street, Patxi’s Pizza, and Sambo’s. Giovanni’s tells me that they were very busy but concerned for their employees’ safety. When you visit some restaurants that are open, the first thing you notice is that there are fewer employees at the register and in the kitchen, which means a lot of people are still out of work and suffering.

Super CuCaS 2018
o-go cocktails are now legal in California, at
least temporarily. So decreed the state’s Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, or ABC, on Friday, just one of many rules being relaxed to enable the restaurant and alcohol industries to better weather the COVID-19 storm. “This regulatory relief is designed to support the alcoholic beverage industry in its efforts to assist California in slowing the spread of the virus while assisting the industry in dealing with the economic challenges it is facing as a result,” explained the ABC in its notice. “The Department has carefully considered the public’s health, safety, and welfare in providing this relief, and the Department has concluded that none of these measures, exercised on a temporary basis, will jeopardize the public’s health, safety, or welfare.” To-go cocktails can only be sold by “bona fide eating places” when in conjunction with pickup or delivery meals. The temporary rules also apply to beer and wine, whether pre-packaged or by the glass.

AND STREAM ON Joe Woodard, Arts Writer
Reading: Old New Yorkers (especially short stories); a dogeared copy of Bill Faulkner’s Mosquitos I found somewhere TV: Re-watching Curb Your Enthusiasm (and wondering if we fans are a bit sadistic) Film: Re-watching/re-loving Fellini’s masterful La Dolce Vita and being jealous of all of Marcello’s city and people gallivanting. Music: Listening to Jeff Parker’s drippingly cool, vibe-jazzy Suite for Max Brown, and realizing that Big Thief ’s “Not” is my favorite song.
Amber White, Digital Assistant Reading: I’m mostly reading board books like Everywhere Babies, Ten Little Fingers and Ten Little Toes, and P Is for Potty! Life is so fun when you’re trapped with a 2-year-old. I downloaded Untamed by Glennon Doyle in hopes of reading it, but most of my free time is spent pretending the floor is lava or that I have been frozen by Elsa, so I can’t make any promises. TV: Peppa Pig is the show of choice in my house, so now the whole family speaks in English accents. I have also started Love Is Blind on Netflix, which I find fascinating and a little sad.
Daniel Dreifuss, Photographer TV: Letterkenny and What We Do in the Shadows on Hulu are both hilarious shows. Also, The Extreme Weather Files on Amazon Prime (only the last 30 minutes of episode five; it’s about the mudslide/Thomas Fire).
Brandi Rivera, Publisher TV: If you haven’t downloaded Disney+, now is the time! Star Wars: The Clone Wars season seven, plus The Mandalorian. And Cars 1-3 (my 2-year-old’s favorites).
Michelle Drown, Senior Editor TV: Great Greek Myths (Amazon Prime): Great animation, family trees, and historic paintings, illustrations, and statues of the gods keep viewing interesting. And the fascinating stories are actual classics. Two seasons. Merlin (Netflix): An enchanting series about the legendary sorcerer’s early life as a manservant to Prince Arthur and the mischief he gets up to in Camelot. Perfect escapist fare. Five seasons. Books: The Splendid and the Vile by Erik Larson. The latest from this best-selling author is a historical page-turner that
details Winston Churchill’s early days as Prime Minister as he and his family, his colleagues, and the people of London prepare for—and live through—the Blitz. Larson also gives insight into the Reich’s assault strategies and how poor information and low expectations of the British RAF made it impossible for the Luftwaffe to attain aerial superiority.
Stefanie McGinnis, Account Executive TV: The early release of Frozen 2 on Disney+ has been a lifesaver for keeping two-year-old Olivia occupied!
Jackson Friedman, Associate Editor
TV: I’m a few episodes into HBO’s McMillions documentary miniseries about the McDonald’s Monopoly game scam. It’s pretty great so far.
Tessa Reeg, Copy Editor Podcasts: Red Handed, Your Own Backyard, and My Favorite Murder for my true-crime fix. Music: After Hours by The Weeknd, Aurora by Breaking Benjamin, and the singles Red has been releasing from their upcoming album Declaration. Books: I’ve been rereading the Nearly Gone duology by Elle Cosimano, but I’m very tempted to reread Harry Potter for the comfort factor. Video Game: Shadow of the Tomb Raider is a wonderful distraction. The world might be scary right now, but at least I’m not lost in the Peruvian jungle!

WHAT TO DO WHEN SPORTS ARE POSTPONED
Suggestions for Reading, Watching, and Getting Outside
ust as I was starting to emerge from being homebound for much of February, I had to go back into seclusion. In the earlier case, I was recovering from knee replacement surgery. Now I am observing a statewide quarantine to stem the spread of COVID-19. When I was virtually immobilized by the stiffness of my post-surgical right knee, at least I had sports to follow. As I sat on the couch and put my leg through the excruciating extensions and contractions of physical therapy, I welcomed the distractions of televised European soccer in midday and NBA or college basketball in the evening. I was able to view UCSB basketball and baseball games on streaming live video. It was with mixed emotions that I had chosen to undergo the replacement surgery. It was not a life-or-death situation (hence, elective surgeries are not being performed while the medical community braces for coronavirus cases). I could still get around, even ride a bike, with my creaky knees, both of them bone-on-bone arthritic. But the right one ached constantly and acutely, 54 years after it had undergone an operation that excised most of the cartilage. My surgeon said he found old sutures from that procedure when he cleaned out the joint last month. Three weeks after my new knee was installed, I could hobble around with a cane and was able to get out of the house. I attended two UCSB basketball games — women’s and men’s, both teams ending the regular season on winning streaks —and and saw the Westmont College women play like the nation’s No. 1 NAIA team. In an astonishing cascade of events during the following days, March Madness took on a new meaning. It was not about basketball or any other sport—they were all shut down, along with every other activity that draws numbers of people together. I was confined to home again by a quarantine that is designed for the protection of baby boomers like me. But now I had no sports to follow. What was I to do?

READING: Sports Illustrated arrived in the mailbox.
The magazine is now published monthly. This is the baseball preview edition. Predictions include: YanYan kees over the Dodgers in the World Series, and the Ameri American League Cy Young Award going to Cleveland pitcher Shane Bieber, just four years after he was throwing strikes for the Gauchos. The Dodg Dodgers were supposed to open the season against the Giants today (Thursday, March 26). Sorry. A sports story from the Associated Press Press: UCSB 30
MARCH 26, 2020
freshman Ila Lane has been named to the AP All-America women’s basketball team. Lane is among 22 players listed as honorable mention. The 64 center led the nation in rebounding average, and her 19 double-doubles ranked fourth. She averaged 15.3 points and 13 rebounds per game. She is the fourth UCSB women’s All-American, following Erin Buescher (1999, 2000), Lindsay Taylor (2003), and Kristen Mann (2004, 2005). With three years remaining in her career, could Lane surpass those Gaucho greats? I pulled out some volumes from my eclectic assortment of books. • When the Crowd Didn’t Roar: How
Baseball’s Strangest Game Ever Gave a Broken City Hope, by Kevin Cowherd. It is an account of the April 29, 2015, game between the Baltimore Orioles and Chicago White Sox, the only major league game ever played without fans. The gates of Camden Yards were locked because of rioting in the streets of Baltimore. Angels manager Joe Maddon recently suggested that the 2020 major league season could start with fan-less games until the coronavirus threat diminishes. • Heart of a Lion: The Life, Death, and Legacy of Hank Gathers, by Kyle Keiderling. On March 4, 1990, Gathers, a transcendent Loyola Marymount basketball player, collapsed and died from a heart arrhythmia during a postseason tournament game. Three months previously, he had fallen momentarily unconscious at the free-throw line during a game against UCSB; it was a foreshadowing of what was to come. Gathers was driving himself toward NBA stardom, and his death created a sensation that is reminiscent of this year’s Kobe Bryant tragedy. • This Old Man, by Roger Angell. Baseball is a recurring subject in this compilation of pieces written with eloquence and style by the 99-year-old Angell during and since his years as a New Yorker editor. • Wanderlust: A History of Walking, by Rebecca Solnit. The author leaves no paths unexplored in describing past and present manifestations of our uniquely human form of
upright bipedal locomotion. It is a vital way of connecting us to the world. WATCHING & LISTENING: My wife is delighted that there are no sports events to compete with her favorite television programs—a reward well deserved after she cared for me and put up with me throughout the ongoing rehabilitation of my knee. There was plenty of time for me to slip in some sports programming. I enjoyed This Is Football, a six-part series on Amazon Prime that shows how the sport — known to us as soccer — captivates the world. One segment covers the growth of women’s soccer (credit to the United States), and it tells the inspiring story of Japan’s women, who twice came from behind to win the 2011 World Cup final over their American idols. Fans of boxing might like Netflix’s Spenser Confidential, starring Mark Wahlberg as a cop turned detective who becomes a punching bag for various unsavory characters before he turns the tables on them with the help of his sidekick Hawk, the imposing Winston Duke. It’s very loosely based on the Spenser page-turners written by Robert B. Parker. The outrageous and sometimes hilarious TV series Brockmire returned for its final season on IFC last week. Hank Azaria is a foul-mouthed sportscaster who returns from exile to become commissioner of baseball in 2030, when the sport is barely surviving in a world that has been ravaged by virus and withering climate change. Then there is the news, the bad, bad news, leavened by stories of people Brockmire doing good works. When will I watch live sports again? I’m counting on Tokyo’s Summer Olympic Games … in 2021. GETTING OUT: We’ve observed the rules of going out for essen-
tial errands only, which for me includes twice weekly physical therapy sessions — and for recreation, as long as six feet of social distance is maintained. With each passing day, walking becomes easier for me, and the beach was a perfect place to take some long strolls last week. Extremely low tides left a vast expanse of sand, and chilly weather was a deterrent to populating the shore, so social distancing was no problem. I heard that it was a problem on Southern California beaches over the weekend and can only hope I can continue this refreshing activity. Otherwise, I’ll find other places to walk, breathe, and be thankful for a life that is so full of opportunities in spite of inconveniences. n

Octavio Paz: “The path the ancestors cleared is overgrown, unused. The other path, smooth and broad, is crowded with travelers. It goes nowhere. There’s a third path: mine. Before me, no one. Behind me, no one. Alone, I find my way.” APRIL FOOL! Although the passage by Octavio Paz is mostly accurate for your destiny during the rest of 2020, it’s off-kilter in one way: It’s too ponderously serious and melodramatic. You should find a way to carry out its advice with meditative grace and effervescent calm.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): A century ago, fiery writer Maxim
(1703-1791) was a Christian who embodied the liberal values that Christ actually taught. He advocated for the abolition of slavery, prison reform, the ordination of women priests, and a vegetarian diet. He gave away a lot of his money and administered many charities. To accomplish his life’s work, he traveled 250,000 miles on horseback and preached 40,000 sermons. Let’s make him your role model for the coming weeks. Be inspired by his life as you vividly express your care and compassion. APRIL FOOL! I lied a little bit. Although most of what I just recommended is a good idea, the part about traveling long distances, either on horseback or by other means, is not.

woman named Sulpicia wrote six short love poems — a total of 40 lines — that are still being analyzed and discussed by literary scholars today. I bring her to your attention because I think that in the next four weeks you, too, could generate a small burst of beauty that will still be appreciated 2,000 years from now. APRIL FOOL! I lied about the “small” part. The burst of beauty you create in the immediate future could actually be quite large, as well as enduring.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): French poet Louis Aragon (1897-1982)
was an influential novelist and a pioneer of surrealistic poetry. Much of his writing had a lyrical quality, and many of his poems were set to music. He also had a belligerent streak. Before the publication of one of his books, he announced that he would thrash any writer who dared to review it in print. Success! There were no critical reviews at all. I recommend his approach to you in the coming weeks. Make it impossible for anyone to criticize you. APRIL FOOL! I lied. I would never suggest that you use violence to accomplish your aims. And besides that, the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to solicit feedback of all varieties, even the critical kind.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I hesitate to be so blunt, but it’s my
duty to report the facts. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you should have as many orgasms as possible in the next 15 days. You need to tap into the transformative psychological power that’s available through monumental eruptions of pleasure and releases of tension. (P.S. Spiritual orgasms will be just as effective as physical orgasms.) APRIL FOOL! What I just said is true, but I left out an important component of your assignment: Be loving and responsible as you pursue your joyous climaxes, never manipulative or exploitative or insensitive.
was renowned for his skill at delivering powerful, charismatic speeches. While he was still learning his craft, he resorted to extreme measures to improve. For example, there was a time when he shaved just half of his head. It made him ashamed to go out in public, forcing him to spend all his time indoors practicing his speeches. Would you consider a similar strategy right now? APRIL FOOL! I was just messing with you. It’s true that the coming weeks will be a good time to minimize your socializing and devote yourself to hard work in behalf of a beloved dream. But shaving half your head isn’t the best way to accomplish that.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): The coming weeks will be a favorable
time for you to tell as many lies as possible if doing so helps you get what you want. I hereby authorize you to engage in massive deceptions, misrepresentations, and manipulative messages as you seek to impose your will on every flow of events. APRIL FOOL! I lied. In fact, everything I just said was the exact opposite of your actual horoscope, which is as follows: You have a sacred duty to tell more of the truth than you have ever been able to tell before. As you dig deeper to discover more and more of what’s essential for you to understand and express, dedicate your efforts to the goal of gliding along with the most beautiful and interesting flow you can find.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Fifteen minutes before the Big Bang occurred, where was the matter that now constitutes your body and my body? And if, as seems to be true, the Big Bang was the beginning of time, what time was it 15 minutes earlier? Questions like these are crucial for you to ponder in the next two weeks. APRIL FOOL! I lied. The questions I articulated should in fact be very low priority for you. In the immediate future, you’ll be wise to be as concrete and specific and pragmatic as you can possibly be. Focus on up-close personal questions that you can actually solve, not abstract, unsolvable riddles.
