SEQUOIA SKATERS TO S.B. SHOTS Photographer Erick Madrid started shooting regularly for the Santa Barbara Independent earlier this year. This week, he manned the lens behind most of the Home & Garden special cover story, starting on page 17. He tells us a bit more about himself below.

TABLE of CONTENTS

Where are you from? I’m originally from rural Central Valley, 20 miles east of Visalia, right below Sequoia National Park. My parents were farmers, so I grew up and worked on 30 acres of oranges. I came to Santa Barbara in 1997, via Mammoth Lakes, to get a surgery on my shoulder and ended up staying here. How’d you start as a photographer? My career started at 17 years old when I scored a freelance gig with an Australian skateboard magazine called 540. I covered the Visalia YMCA skateboard camp at Sequoia Lake in the summer of ’89. Shortly after moving to Santa Barbara, I took some classes at Brooks Institute to learn digital photography. Then I left early to be an assistant for two of Sports Illustrated’s staff photographers. That was the best education in photography and life I could have ever asked for. How is it being a photographer here? Santa Barbara is a great place to be a photographer. I shoot whatever moves me. I love the nuances of light and people. I currently have an ongoing project called #thisisyour citysb and you can view my work on Instagram @erickmadrid43.

CORONAVIRUS

NEWS BRIEFS CORONAVIRUS S.B. County’s COVID death count has been zero for the month of May, and even in California, which leads the nation in coronavirus deaths, the daily number of deaths has been dropping — from 600-plus in January to fewer than 70 in May. The flip side is that while S.B. County had babies, it just didn’t have as many as before. Read more on how population growth has slowed in the county during the pandemic and how that tracks with nationwide trends at independent.com/births-and-deaths. A “superstar lineup” of pediatricians will take community questions about COVID and children in a webinar set for 5/21 at 3 p.m. The Q&A will feature Dr. Peggy Dodds with County Public Health, Dr. Dan Brennan of Sansum Clinic, and Dr. Margot Roseman with the Children’s Medical Clinic of S.B. and will be moderated by Dr. Lynn Fitzgibbons, an infectious disease specialist with Cottage Health. The topics include vaccine safety and effectiveness, COVID variants, safety for vaccinated parents and unvaccinated children, activities, and making sense of the recommendations from the CDC. Register at tinyurl .com/COVID-children-community.

STATE MANDATE: “I think as the science evolves, we should react to it, and it’s a huge mistake for the state not to recognize it right now,” 4th District Supervisor Bob Nelson said.

Low Vaccination Rate Cited to Keep State Mandate Until June 15 by Delaney Smith n the face of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) sudden guidance change last week that allows for vaccinated people to go maskless in most indoor situations, Santa Barbara County will keep its mask mandate for another month longer. “The CDC guidance does allow for local and state governance, and based upon the Sacramento CDPH recommending that we maintain the masks indoors, we are keeping masks because we simply aren’t there yet in terms of vaccination rates,” Public Health Director Van Do-Reynoso said. June 15 is the target date that the state plans to remove masks indoors, when it will also lose the “blueprint” tiered system of slowly reopening the economy and go back to much of what life was like before the pandemic. For now, Dr. Henning Ansorg, county public health officer, said that vaccinated people should still wear masks anytime they are indoors in public and to even keep their masks on outside if there is a crowd of others around. Vaccinated people do not need to wear a mask outside, he said, and unvaccinated people can also go maskless outdoors if social distancing is observed. He also added that fully vaccinated people can entertain other fully vaccinated people without masks if they are in their own home and not in public.

Fourth District Supervisor Bob Nelson said that, although he isn’t an “anti-masker,” he is disappointed in the decision to require masks for vaccinated people, and that not requiring them for vaccinated people could have been used as an incentive to get more people vaccinated. “I think as the science evolves, we should react to it, and it’s a huge mistake for the state not to recognize it right now,” Nelson said. “People don’t believe us anymore and don’t believe the government is going to give away that authority that they’ve taken during these emergency measures. I think this has been a huge missed opportunity for the state to show good faith.” Do-Reynoso also gave an update on how the county is doing with COVID-19 spread. The county is still in the orange tier with an adjusted case rate of 2.1 and a testing positivity rate of 1.0 percent.

She said that 51 percent of Santa Barbara County residents have at least one shot, and 41.1 percent are fully vaccinated. “Part of our public is anxious to get rid of their masks, and part of our public are scared that not enough folks are vaccinated so they don’t want to take off their masks,” said 1st District Supervisor Das Williams, “and the best way to get both groups to where they’re happiest is if more people got vaccinated.” n

County to Keep Masks on Despite CDC Guidance

COURTS & CRIME A stolen vehicle collided with an MTD bus on 5/15 after the driver reportedly ran a stop sign at the intersection of State and Islay streets trying to flee from the police. Driver Jose Munoz, 24, of Santa Barbara was transported to Cottage Hospital for his injuries. In addition, two juvenile occupants in the stolen vehicle had serious injuries, and six passengers on the bus had minor injuries. Munoz is being charged with child endangerment, DUI collision causing injury, possession of a stolen vehicle, possession of narcotics for sale, and evading an officer.

An Isla Vista man drove his vehicle off the 30- to 40-foot cliff just past the 6800 block of Del Playa Drive the night of 5/15 and landed, apparently unharmed, on Devereux Beach. The tide was up at the time, and the person, as yet unidentified, fled on foot and was detained by law enforcement around 11:50 p.m. A tow truck arrived the next morning during low tide to lift the vehicle up the cliff face. An investigation is ongoing and will be conducted by the UCSB Police Department and the Sheriff’s Office. CONT’D ON PAGE 8 

actually do the job that it sets out to do in a community.” Civilian oversight is a rapidly growing field. At the beginning of 2020, there were approximately 200 committees to cover the country’s 18,000 law enforcement agencies. But by June 2020, NACOLE was assisting an additional 130 jurisdictions, all of which were in some stage of the committee-forming process. “I cannot stress how important stakeholder outreach and community input is to the process,” she cautioned. Hasty decisions are the main reason for oversight failure, she —Katie Lydon said.

Low Vaccination Rates for Lompoc Prisoners

A

recent court-ordered medical inspection of the Lompoc prison complex — where a major COVID-19 outbreak last spring killed four inmates and sickened more than 1,000 others — has revealed an alarmingly low vaccination acceptance rate among inmates. Dr. Homer Venters, the epidemiologist who performed the inspection as part of a class-action lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) against the federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), said he was “extremely concerned” about the roughly 50 percent rate, which he attributed to prison staff neglecting to address the inmates’ “very valid and predictable concerns” about the potential effects of the vaccine on their underlying health diagnoses. Venters interviewed 67 prisoners on April 20 and 21, 33 of whom had refused the COVID-19 vaccine, citing worries about how it might impact their heart disease, autoimmune disease, diabetes, cancer, asthma, and other conditions. (The majority of the Lompoc complex is low-security and houses elderly inmates.) Rather than address these fears, Venters said, prison staff dismissively told the inmates to either take the vaccine or sign a refusal form.

“Many of the people who reported refusing the vaccine told me they were willing to take it but simply had questions about their own health status,” Venters reported. “The approach of BOP Lompoc not only fails to engage with patients; it has a paradoxical effect of extremely high-risk unvaccinated patients. … In other detention settings I have worked in, a COVID-19 refusal by a high-risk patient would result in a prompt session with a physician or mid-level provider, because the consequences of infection are so grave.” Venters, who was recently appointed by President Biden to the national COVID-19 Health Equity Task Force, also uncovered serious ongoing problems with the medical care provided to prisoners, including critical delays and deficiencies in treatment. In one instance, Venters noted, a 62-yearold man who contracted and ultimately died from COVID-19 “had lost the use of his lower extremities, sustained multiple falls, and was often incontinent of bowel and bladder” before he was finally transferred to a hospital. In four other cases, Venters said, inmates reported “ongoing respiratory and neurological symptoms from their COVID-19 infection many months prior, and that they were not receiving care.” —Tyler Hayden

he City of Santa Barbara is moving closer to forming a civilian review board with Wednesday’s meeting of the Community Formation Commission, which is tasked with recommending a model to City Council which would improve oversight of the police force. Since the induction of its 15 members this February, the board is very much in the beginning phase of its work. But it is making progress. “The training wheels are officially off,” said Commissioner Gabriel Escobedo at last Wednesday’s meeting. Escobedo, who serves as the commission’s chair, said he encouraged commissioners to embrace difficult discussions with each other. “To be brutally honest, we only get one shot at this,” he said. The commission voted to contract with NACOLE, National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement, a nonprofit that provides support for independent civilian committees. NACOLE’s director of training and education, Cameron McEllhiney, said, “We’re not looking for civilian oversight that is just window dressing. We want it to

Artists Weigh In on Murals

undreds of Eastside community members expressed their thoughts about the future of Ortega Park after learning that redevelopment plans included the removal of its 18 cultural murals. Carlos Cuellar and Manuel Unzueta, two of the original park muralists, have their thoughts on the matter, too. The art pieces, portraying Aztec, Chumash, and Chicano iconography, were originally slated for removal as part of the park’s $14 million renovation, but demands to preserve them and their legacy prompted the City of Santa Bar- Manuel Unzueta bara to reevaluate this portion of the plans. Despite their minor differences in Cuellar and Unzueta — both accom- opinion, Unzueta and Cuellar see the plished artists, respected mentors, and redevelopment project as an opportunity longtime Santa Barbara residents — have to improve the park, and to empower the personal connections to Ortega Park and to next generation of local artists to create the work they created there, as well as some — or re-create — cultural art pieces for overlapping hopes for the park’s next phase. it.

NEWS of the WEEK CONT’D CANNABIS

BOTTLES AND BUDS: Last week, the new owners of Sunstone Winery (above) announced they’d secured the necessary planning permits to cultivate cannabis where for 30 years organic wine grapes have been grown.

Weed and Wine Come Together in the Valley Sunstone Winery Will Grow Commercial Cannabis Alongside Grapes for First Time Ever in S.B. County by Nick Welsh or 30 years now, Sunstone Winery has provided the Santa Ynez Valley one of its more famously photographed touchstones, shifting from “Tuscan-inspired” villa in wedding albums to “futuristic French chateau,” at least for purposes of one recent Star Trek show. Last week, the new owners of Sunstone took it to the next level of improbability, announcing they’d secured the necessary planning permits to cultivate cannabis where for 30 years organic wine grapes have been grown. This marks the firsttime cannabis and viniculture — often presented as intractable foes — will coexist in peaceful commercial cultivation at the same time and the same place in Santa Barbara County.  Perhaps more remarkable, Sunstone’s new owners managed to negotiate an understanding with seven neighbors — several of whom are big names in the wine industry — and effectively defanged what could easily have escalated into another drawn-out appeals battle waged in front of the Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors.  Last week, Teddy Cabugos, Sunstone’s new guiding force, hammered out the final details on a deal with potential appellants led by Tim Crist, owner of the Cinque Stelle Winery and chief executive for Kenai Drilling, a major force in the oilextraction world of Cat Canyon and areas beyond. “We never had to go to the Planning Commission,” a much-relieved Cabugos exclaimed after the deal was signed. “Not one time!”  But Cabugos and Sunstone are hardly out of the woods. They still have to apply for and secure the necessary business permits, for example, before they can begin cultivation. And it’s still too soon to say the extent to which Sunstone’s new approach — with a foot in both camps — reflects a broader softening of antagonisms between such strikingly similar but often conflicting industries.  At maximum build-out, Sunstone will be planting only 6.5 acres of cannabis. That’s hardly anything compared to some of the bigger proposals wending their way through the county’s approval process. And it will be phased in gradually over

F

a three-year period. Next March, Cabugos said, he will plant two acres; the year after that, he will plant another three. And the year after that, another one and a half. “I want to make sure there are no adverse effects for my own grapes,” he said. And if, along the way, problems arise, say with odor, Cabugos has committed to making the necessary adjustments. But to help prevent that from becoming an issue, Cabugos also agreed to plant only two harvests a year at first, instead of the three he could have gotten. Should it turn out that’s not enough, he said he’s prepared to install a new odor-control system, in which the olfactory assault of airborne cannabis molecules are neutralized by essential oils — eucalyptus, lavender, and citrus — shot skyward by vapor jets.  This decidedly small-ball approach reflects a business plan that’s “all about building the brand,” in Cabugos’s words, rather than maximizing production on large swaths of land. And the brand, he said, is all about experience and perception. “The experience of walking in a two-acre field of cannabis is not all that different than walking in a 50-acre field,” he said. “Fifty or two, it doesn’t really matter.” What matters, he said, is the sense of the experience and the Teddy Cabugos brand that can be attached.  Sunstone, Cabugos noted, sells wine made with grapes grown by 15 different vineyards. The same can be done, he added, with cannabis. The actual processing — typically the most odoriferously intense aspect of the cannabis production cycle — will take place elsewhere and not on the Sunstone premises. About half the product will be sold as flower and bud, he said, the other half rendered

into oil that can be used to produce makeup, edibles, salves, tinctures, vape oil, sleeping aids, and non-alcoholic wines. On one hand, Cabugos is embracing the Sunstone brand by partnering with Fred Rice, the winery’s original founder, and his daughter Brittany Rice, the chief winemaker. But Cabugos has also been shifting the Sunstone image, transitioning the tasting-room experience from one dominated by the older, whiter demographic to a younger, more ethnically diverse crowd. Throughout the pandemic, Sunstone’s outdoor tasting area has been frequently packed. Either deejays are present or live bands are playing. According to 3rd District Planning Commissioner John Parke, the vibe is notably more young and fun, a necessary adjustment to the market realities confronting a wine industry intent on finding new consumers. As the planning commissioner for much of the Santa Ynez Valley, Parke often finds himself on the front lines in the battle between cannabis and grapes. Over the years, he’s sought to engineer kumbaya moments between the feuding factions. In this case, Parke urged representatives of the appellants to try to work something out with Cabugos. “Sometimes it’s better to cut a deal than to lose on appeal and not do so well,” he cautioned.  Cabugos made a point to lavish praise on the appellants’ attorney, Courtney Taylor, for helping make a deal happen. But Parke also credited Cabugos, a third-generation Santa Barbaran and former mixed-martial artist, for the relentlessness of his outreach to neighbors. Outgoing, warm, and endlessly enthusiastic, Cabugos went to local public schools; he seems not just to know everyone, but to be friends with them as well. Certainly it hasn’t hurt that he’s close with one of the lead attorneys representing the Coalition for Responsible Cannabis, one of the chief appellants challenging county cannabis permits.  Cabugos has also teamed up with John Price, a major player in Santa Barbara commercial real estate and development circles. “He’s bringing some horsepower,” Cabugos said of Price. The pair just won the county’s competition for a retail dispensary site, and when it opens shop at a former gas station just spitting distance from the recently closed Dutch Garden Restaurant on Hollister Avenue, it will fly the Sunstone flag.  Likewise, Cabugos is trying to open a Sunstone tasting room in downtown Santa Barbara’s Funk Zone. The synergies are obvious. “From the Funk Zone to Sunstone,” Cabugos proclaimed. And Cabugos has been one of the first winery owners to embrace the nascent opportunities posed by the growing legion of electric bike riders now taking to Santa Ynez’s rolling hills. He’s pledged to install charging stations and repair bays, critical infrastructure for the growing e-bike crowd. The scale of Cabugos’s ambitions first became apparent last year when he joined with downtown property owner Ray Mahboob in proposing a four-story cannabis emporium on State Street that would include two floors of indoor cultivation, a cannabis museum, and a cannabis lounge on the roof. That proposal went nowhere; it was seen as too much, too fast, and too far outside the scope of the city’s cannabis policy. The encounter ended with many noses out of joint and contributed to festering bad blood between Mahboob and Anthony Wagner, the outspoken — and, more recently, exonerated — point person for cannabis issues with the Santa Barbara Police Department. Cabugos took pains to stress that Sunstone is not proposing to install a cannabis lounge as part of its proposal. At least not now. “That’s always been part of the long-term vision,” he said. “But we know now that’s not allowed. I believe the future holds those cards. And when the time comes, we’ll be ready.” n

obituaries Harold Benjamin Moseley 1928 - 2021

Harold Moseley passed from this life in Santa Barbara, California, on Earth Day, April 22, 2021, peacefully and quietly, as he lived it always. In his almost-century, he spent a life full of love, joy, artistic production, healing, teaching, spiritual seeking, reading, and reveling in the mountains, lakes, ocean, forests and deserts of his beloved California. We miss him and his big, beautiful smile every day. Harold was born and grew up in Bakersfield, California, the fifth and youngest child of Mary Jane Moseley and Benjamin J Moseley, who had settled there on a small farm after moving west from Missouri. His parents and grandmother Mary Jane Holder instilled in him from a young age a love of the land and tending plants and animals, which guided him throughout life and which he handed on to his children. With his three older brothers and sister, he roamed the nearby hills and fields, exploring, fishing and hunting. As a young man, Harold discovered the immensity of the Pacific Ocean in Laguna Beach, and began a lifelong relationship with the sea: lifeguarding, diving for abalone and lobsters, beachcombing, swimming and surfing. There he met our mother Carla Tutschulte; they immediately fell in love and soon married. Shortly thereafter he was drafted into the Army during the Korean conflict, moving his young family to bases in California and Arizona. He also served in Japan, where he polished his skills as a builder with Japanese craftsmen. After his service, Harold and Carla settled in Santa Barbara. In a native oak woodland 12

he built a stunning redwood house designed by Carla for his family. They raised their five children in a loving, wild-centered home, while Harold worked as a contractor, building and renovating many fine houses in the area. There were vegetable gardens, fruit orchards, wild foraging, beehives, parties, fabulous hiking, fishing, and Sierra camping adventures, beach days and countless lessons in life skills for his children. He loved dancing and listening to country music, especially John Denver’s “Rocky Mountain High.” He was a kind, lively father and a steadfast friend. Always drawn to health and the healing arts, Harold later began the study of Oriental Medicine while also establishing a cabinet-maker’s studio in Santa Barbara. He and Carla were divorced; he never remarried. Harold was awarded his Doctor of Oriental Medicine degree and relocated to Mt. Shasta, CA where he practiced medicine for years while building a custom home in the woods above his furnituremaker’s studio. Mt. Shasta years were filled with friends, spiritual seeking, fishing, canoeing, hiking and perfecting his furniture art. Harold did not really retire until after the age of 90. He moved back to central California, renovated two more homes for himself in Los Olivos and Los Osos, and continued to create exquisite furniture, both historical recreations and modern classics. With amazing courage, he beat cancer in his 80s, communed with birds and blackberries, gardened, walked the hills, coves and sea bluffs, practiced meditation and Qigong, read widely, cooked complicated delicious meals, and spent loving time with his five children, six grandchildren, and three great-grandchildren. He passed his final illness with dignity, selflessness, and grace. We are deeply grateful to Tree of Life RCFE in Santa Barbara for their compassionate and wonderful care during that time. We miss him sorely.

Harold is survived by his children Delila Moseley (Stephen Sherrill), Laura Baldwin (Tom), Teresa Atterbury, David Moseley (Giséle), and Jon Moseley (Barbara); grandchildren Kumar Atterbury, Usha Atterbury, Aliana Johnson, Willow Moseley, Jasmine Moseley, Marissa Moseley; and great-grandchildren Arjuna, Indra Bear, and Amy, and many nieces and nephews. A Celebration of Life in Santa Barbara is planned for later in the year when COVID-19 conditions allow.

G. Anthony “Tony” Edens 12/8/1940 - 5/15/2021

G. Anthony “Tony” Edens passed away on May 15, 2021 at his home in Santa Barbara, California. Tony was born on December 8, 1940 in Lebanon, Indiana to E.W. “Bud” Edens and Mary Margaret Edens who preceded him in death. On January 23, 1991, Tony married Janet “Jan” Edens who survives him. Tony graduated from Lebanon High School in 1959. Following, he attended Purdue University for three years studying engineering after which he was directly admitted to the Indiana University School of Law in Bloomington. Upon his graduation from IU Law School, Tony practiced law in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Always looking for new challenges, in 1976, Tony along with his 2 children, moved to California, (settling in Santa Barbara in 1977) to give the world of TV Production a try. There he began his decades long career in many facets of the entertainment industry. During his years as a TV Producer, Tony not only put several TV Variety shows on the air, but years before

MTV, he was also one of the top producers in the very early stages of Music Videos. Once he made a name for himself in Hollywood, Tony created the company, Grey Wolf Productions, Inc., where he went on to produce shows with such notable personalities as Rachel Welch, Roy Clark, Mel Tillis, Barbara Eden and Wayne Newton. Later, Tony would produce 2 back-to-back TV shows, “Special Friends,” and “Special Friends 2,” with then Olympic Gold Medalist, Bruce Jenner as the host. Not content with his success, a few years later, Tony completely changed course and helped create Knightsbridge Publishing Company, where as President, the Company published 2 NY Times Best Sellers, “The Plumber,” and Ralph Nader’s, “Wining the Insurance Game,” co-written by Wesley J. Smith. By the mid-90’s, having spent a few years at MGM as Business Director of New Development, Tony later became an industry consultant and a talent representative, most notably representing Notre Dame Professor, Tom Morris thru the late nineties. Tony was a dedicated husband, father and son. He loved animals especially his cherished cats. Tony had an infectious personality, which naturally drew his many friends to him over the years. He and Jan loved entertaining their friends at their beautiful Santa Barbara home, including their famous “putting and hot dog” parties on the miniature golf course they built there. In addition to his wife Jan, Tony is survived by his daughter Kim (Parker) Faison of Goleta, California and his son Kent (Dr. Marilyn Vricella) Edens of Glen Rock, New Jersey; his brother J. Jeffrey (Portia) Edens; and his grandson Kyle Faison. In lieu of services, family and friends will gather for a celebration of life on date to be determined. The family asks that memorials be sent to VNA Health and Hospice in Santa Barbara or an organization of the donor’s choice.

Pamela Jeanne Frost 1952 - 2021

Pamela was born in 1952 to Theresa (Misasi) and Salvatore Mauro Jr. in Glasco, New York. In 1978, Pamela left New York for San Francisco, where she fell in love with Keith Frost. They moved to Santa Barbara and were married in 1980. She loved discovering new things and learning about other cultures, whether through cooking, language classes, or trying her hand at pottery, basket weaving, flower arrangement, or a host of other arts. Pamela was a devoted mother to their two children, enthusiastically helping with their class field trips, holiday celebrations, and supporting local charities in their community. She encouraged her sons, as well as their friends, in all their interests and endeavors, and passed on to them her avid curiosity and explorative nature. Though she never stopped looking outward and making new friends, Pamela was dedicated to her family and creating a nurturing, welcoming home as well. Growing up in a close-knit extended family, she cherished their family traditions, heirloom recipes, and large get-togethers. Cooking was a particular passion of hers, but as well as enjoying delicious food, she equally savoured gathering around the table with family and close friends. She is survived by her husband, Keith; her son Jefferson and his wife Laura Sperry, of Brooklyn, New York; her son Julian, of Maui, Hawaii; her sister Marilyn and her husband Alan Freeburg, of Saugerties, New York; her brother David and his wife Joan, of Glasco, New York; and her brother Salvatore Mauro III, of Santa Barbara, California Continued on p. 14

Veterans’ Stories from U.S., Afghanistan, and Beyond As the U.S. prepares to pull out of Afghanistan, veterans are left with their acrid memories from overseas and at home: difficult to process, even harder to talk through with their friends or their family. Through the veterans writing workshops at UC Santa Barbara—which Professor Susan Derwin has offered for about a decade—emotions can be unpacked and histories discussed with other student veterans, an experience that one student defined as “liberating.” The stories they have written over the years have been both astonishing and captivating. In a public reading that will be virtual this year, the student veterans will share their work and their lives. The event takes place on Thursday, May 27, at noon. To register in advance and receive the Zoom link, please go to the event page at bit.ly/ Veterans-Reading.

Last Day at Baraki Barak

O

BY ROBERT HICKMAN

ff in the distance I heard a distinct sound

— the metallic blades cutting through the air. Could this finally be it? Was this really happening? I touched my face to make sure that I wasn’t dreaming. I was 20 years old, and I was nearing the end of my first deployment. As the helicopter neared, my excitement grew. My heart raced, and my legs and hands were jittery. I couldn’t stand still; I had to pace in circles. I could feel the gusts of wind getting more violent, pushing me back. The sound grew louder. Over the hill I saw a black shadow illuminated by the moonlight. Sand, dust, and particles filled the air. Within seconds, I felt like I was being thrashed around inside a wind tunnel. I didn’t care. I embraced the feeling. I ran to board the helicopter. I had just spent eight months in a remote, small outpost in Afghanistan called Baraki Barak. I was with my platoon, and this was my final day. Ever since my arrival at the base, I had felt nothing but misery. We had been assigned to the outpost in order to create a “safe space” to protect the U.S. forces in the province as they slowly withdrew from the area. This meant that my job was to protect our base and make our presence known. We performed daily patrols to signal to the Taliban that we were in town. During the winter, we had no equipment to keep us warm, so every night it felt like we were inside a freezer. The cold would creep in, forcing me to wiggle my toes so they wouldn’t freeze together. In a desperate attempt to keep my hands warm, I urinated on them, only to realize that the freezing liquid made them even colder. Small red sores were appearing on my hands, the beginning stings of frostbite. In the spring, our only oven broke, and for a month we couldn’t replace it. We rationed our

food. One biscuit for breakfast, one biscuit for dinner. Every night I could feel my stomach screaming for food. I placed all of my hope in leaving so that I could escape the torment, but the date of departure kept getting pushed further and further back. With each delay, I lost a part of myself and became resigned to the fact that this place was my “home.” I had to accept this reality; I had to live in the moment. There was no alternative. I couldn’t spare the mental power needed to imagine being elsewhere. There was no more daydreaming about getting some R&R (rest and recuperation) on the main base, or starting the day by enjoying a warm hot shower, or treating myself to an ice cream sundae to cool off in the heat. I tucked those happy thoughts into a box and locked them away. The delays made me feel stupid for hoping this existence could be over. “How stupid could I be?” I would ask myself. I need to stop foolishly thinking that life would get better here. I grew sour and bitter. I hated everything and everyone. The air, the people, the missions. I hated myself for ever wanting to join the Army. As the helicopter began to take off, the pleasing thoughts that I had locked up slowly returned. I thought about how great it would feel taking a long, hot shower. I wanted to sleep in a nice, proper bed. I felt the bitterness leaving and optimism beginning to seduce me. As we flew over the hill, I looked back one last time at the small outpost, and I said goodbye to the old me. Robert Hickman served as an infantryman in the U.S. Army for three years.

obituaries Richard Whited

4/16/1941 - 5/5/2021

Whited, Richard is remembered as a quiet, gentle, and honest person. He was born April 16th, 1941 to Ann and Franklin Whited, as a third generation Santa Barbaran from a large Italian American family. After graduating from the last class of Santa Barbara Catholic High School before it became Bishop Diego High School, he attended University California of Santa Barbara (UCSB) to receive a BA and continued on to obtain a PhD in Physics. He conducted his post doctoral research at UCSB and Louisiana State University (LSU) in solid-state spectroscopy. He also began trading on the stock market at this time. Besides his two year stint at LSU, he spent his whole life in Santa Barbara. When he returned home he was employed by EG&G Inc. where he worked for the next seven years on improving gamma ray detectors. In 1979, he met his future wife Paula at a Christmas Party. Two years later they got married and decided to raise a family in Richard’s beloved Santa Barbara. In 1986, upon his longtime broker’s encouragement, Richard turned his hobby in trading into a full-time career by starting his own business as a Commodity Trading Advisor. His business began to grow and with this success he was able to give philanthropic support to causes that were near and dear to his heart, starting with Catholic Charities. He was also one of the original proponents for the successful formation of the city of Goleta and was a very active member of the Good Land Coalition. Maintaining Goleta’s historic orchards, farmlands, and coasts were very important to him. He devoted himself to many other local conservation efforts and supported organizations such 14

as, Environmental Defense Center, Los Padres Forests Watch, Gaviota Coast Conservancy, Santa Barbara Audubon Society, and others. In addition, out of appreciation to all that UCSB gave to him, he endowed a chair to UCSB in the interdisciplinary science with a focus on energy efficiency. Besides philanthropy, he enjoyed traveling, cruising to all seven continents, biking, hiking, playing bridge, and walking on the beach. After a year of declining health, he passed away on May 5th, 2021 of a stroke. He is survived by his wife Paula, two children Tanja and Daniel, Daniel’s wife Olivia, and his sister JoAnn and her family. He is interred at Calvary Cemetery.

Ralph Hyatt

9/4/1958 - 3/29/2021

Ralph Hyatt was a devoted father, husband, and son. He passed away peacefully at home in Santa Barbara on March 29, 2021 after a battling a number of health issues. He was surrounded by his family and beloved rescue dogs. Ralph was born September 4, 1958 at Cottage Hospital. He loved Santa Barbara and his vast community of friends, his State Street “shuffles,” touring friends and family on drives around town, Hendry’s Beach walks, umpiring and volunteering for local baseball programs, trips to Palm Springs, and frequenting his favorite restaurants, most of all, Harry’s Plaza Cafe. He is survived by his wife of 36 years, Kelly, his 4 children Laura (35), Thomas (32), Kelsey (26), and Claire (20) and his mother, Lois Braunheim. He was preceded in death by his father, Ralph B. Hyatt and stepfather, Stephen Braunheim. Ralph’s humor and endless optimism won’t soon be forgotten. He never met a stranger and had lasting nicknames for all close to him. In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting donations be made to Underdog Heroes Rescue (underdogheroes.org) or Channel Islands Marine and Wildlife Institute (cimwi. org).

William “Randy” Akens

11/14/1946 - 5/12/2021

Randy passed away Wednesday, May 12, 2021 after a long, courageous battle with cancer. He is survived by his wife Linda, son Trent, wife Thida; daughter Shelly, husband Kimani; granddaughters Kayalin, Klio and Everest; niece Meghan Posch-Povey, husband Marc, and daughters Ella and Scarlett. Also many relatives in Summerland, Cleveland, OH and Nashville, TN. Randy was a graduate of Carpinteria High School, earned a bachelor’s degree in music at CA State-Hayward college, and was a Navy Veteran having served 4 years in the Vietnam War. He worked many years in local water districts, with his last 27 years as general manager at El Capitan Mutual Water Company where he was known to ride through the rolling hills on his ATV with his chocolate lab, Latti. His true passion and callings were as a musician and artist. He played the saxophone and flute for many bands which graced the stages of the Bay Area and Santa Barbara over the years. He also played the guitar and other instruments, which he taught to his family and was known to start a jam session for any occasion. He was a thoughtful and creative man whose drawings and paintings reflected the beauty of the world as he saw it, and also were a way for him to share his love with those most important to him. A Graveside Celebration of Life will be held at the Carpinteria Cemetery, Saturday, May 22, 2021 at 12:30 pm. He is loved by many and will be deeply missed, always.

Ursula Maria Clarke 7/25/1926 - 5/9/2021

Ursula Maria Clarke (Nickisch) of Santa Barbara passed away May 9, 2021. She was born July 25, 1926 in Berlin, Germany, the only child of Hedwig and Christian Nickisch. She worked as a bilingual secretary and translator for the Daily Express newspaper in its Berlin office. In 1955 she married Howard William Clarke, whom she had met when he was posted in Berlin with the U.S. Army during the Cold War. Ursula moved to the U.S. and lived in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Walled Lake Michigan and finally settled in Santa Barbara in 1965. After having 2 daughters she earned a Bachelor’s Degree as a non traditional student first at Oakland University in Rochester, Michigan, and finally at UC Santa Barbara. Ursula then completed a teaching credential for teaching German and French at the high school level. In 1972 Ursula returned to Germany with her family, living in Goettingen as her husband ran the German UC Education Abroad Center. Upon the family’s return to Santa Barbara, Ursula worked as a translator and bilingual secretary at UCSB in the Germanic and Slavic Languages Department, where she very much enjoyed her work and the camaraderie of her coworkers. Ursula so enjoyed the academic environment that she continued to work part-time at the UCSB Library in Special Collections, translating the numerous letters and documents of Lotte Lehman, the internationally renowned German soprano who had spent many years in Santa Barbara. Upon retirement, Ursula and Howard spent a number of years taking many cruises throughout the Mediterranean where Howard lectured on classical sites and Ursula mingled with

the other cruise guests. After her husband’s passing Ursula moved to the Vista del Monte retirement community. Her daughters would especially like to thank Ya-Ping Luan, Vanessa Munoz-Pintos, and Eva Beltran for their compassionate and professional care of our mother. Special thanks to Abraham Sanchez, who lovingly cared for Ursula during her final hours of life. Ursula is survived by two daughters Anne Marie Clarke of Santa Barbara, Christine Clarke (Abhay Ashtekar) of State College, Pennsylvania, and a grandson Neil Ashtekar of State College, Pennsylvania. There are no services planned. She will be interred next to her husband in Calvary Cemetery in Santa Barbara.

Mary A. Keith 11/24/2019

Mary A. Keith died November 24, 2019, peacefully at home surrounded by her family. Mary died of a broken heart after the recent death of her youngest daughter, Cynthia O’Shaughnessy. Now they are together again! The world lost a beautiful person but heaven gained another angel. She was preceded in death by husband John Keith. She is survived by three daughters; Vickie Craine, Coleen Reece, Judy Allen (Jay Allen), many grand children, great grand children, one great great grand child, and great friend, exhusband John O’Shaughnessy. She is also survived by her four siblings; JR, Lois, Bill and Darlene. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her. There are no words to accurately describe Mary, she was truly a special person who touched so many people. A celebration of her life will follow after the New Year. In lieu of flowers a donation to Alpha Resource Center in her name would make her happy; 4501 Cathedral Oaks Rd, Santa Barbara, CA 93110.

he City Council has gone too far and is out of control. Behind my house, the council approved a four-story building that contains 24 apartments, 21 of which are micro-apartments. The lot is small and narrow. In 2015, an eight-unit condo project was rejected because it did not follow urban and historic guidelines, nor did it meet necessary setbacks. This project does not meet any of those, yet it was approved. Setbacks were waived, and it will be built on property lines. The adjacent properties have three buildings, two of which are single-story homes already on the property lines. The Architectural Board of Review waived the requirement for story poles. They have not addressed any of the surrounding residents’ objections. We sent letters and emails to the ABR, City Council, and mayor with no response. I had to pay $750 to appeal just to be heard. It is difficult to get much information from Sacramento, but from the few people I have talked to, building is not mandatory; it is encouraged by relaxing some of the building codes. On this project at 825 De la Vina, building codes that are designed to protect surrounding properties and to maintain the character of the city were abandoned completely. The project also includes a commercial space in the front. Why, when State Street has a 13 percent commercial vacancy rate, is the city adding commercial space? I assume it is a way of getting around the setbacks as commercial requires less. The area of the project is considered historically sensitive, as many of the houses are more than 100 years old. A project of this scale will affect the lateral stability of our properties. —Donna Mrotek, S.B.

Sages on Chloe the Yorkie

Dog lovers had opinions on the “Chloe the Missing Yorkie” story on Facebook: Marianne Grossi Portman The dog had a broken leg, and Animal Services still put it up for adoption immediately? Seems as though it would have been placed in foster care until healthy. • Pam Bradley Four days seems a bit short for a found stray that was clearly a pet. A long weekend away from home could mean your pet is adopted out by the time you get home to start looking. Maribeth Ann Hayes First place you check is animal services. The owners’ anger is misdirected and should be more on themselves for not tagging their dog or having a collar on. Maybe the new own-

ers feel they are a better fit? Suing the county for following its own protocols is ridiculous. Kelly Cole-Smith The “new owners” should have done the right thing and given the dog back. Not sure how they sleep at night knowing they have someone else’s pet. • Elizabeth Bautista The dog was found at the Miramar Hotel, and many strangers contributed to the emergency medical care. The “found dog” posts were all over NextDoor. Alexis Butler It’s $25 to get your dog chipped at the Humane Society. Don’t let this happen to you!

any thanks to Charles Donelan and the Independent for highlighting the Dalai Lama interview with Pico Iyer. Of all the material included, I found the comments by the Dalai Lama to be the most apt and illuminating in regard to the larger long-term cultural impacts that Tibetan Buddhism could have on the West. However, some clarification is needed. The photograph on the cover is not Pico Iyer and Tenzin Gyatso meeting in 1986. It is Pico’s father, Professor Raghavan Iyer, meeting the 14th Dalai Lama in 1984. As part of that historic 1984 visit, at the invitation of Professor Iyer, the Dalai Lama also gave an instructive lecture at Santa Barbara’s United Lodge of Theosophists, highlighting the profound philosophical and spiritual continuities between the deepest strains of Tibetan Buddhist thought and Theosophical wisdom. —Kirk Gradin, S.B.

Editor’s Note: Thank you, Kirk Gradin, and we stand corrected. The cover image is of Pico Iyer’s father, Raghavan Iyer, with the Dalai Lama. It was taken in 1984, not 1986, by John Powers.

Jeff Shelton project — the delight is in the details. From the Moroccan tile carpets of Pistachio House to the Escherlike staircase of El Jardin, the Seussian shapes of Ablitt House, and the quirky art-covered Vera Cruz building, touches of his fairy dust are sprinkled around town. The artistry and zest for life infused in Jeff Shelton’s buildings are hard to miss.

ing project (expect to see vibrantly tiled columns and fancifully loopy iron fences guiding pedestrians from the beach to downtown), and a tequila bar at the corner of Ortega and State. “I just try to find good clients,” said Shelton. “It’s no fun with clients that don’t understand the process. I’ve been pretty lucky. Clients are the ones who make it work. They pay for everything, but they also have to have faith in this crazy bunch of people they’re getting into working with.” Mary Beth Myers, whose Tower House was the first to be rebuilt in Montecito after the 2018 mudslides, had nothing but raves about Shelton and his team. “Jeff ’s just a peach — he’s so creative, he has such minimal ego, and is so cooperative,” she said. “After all is said and done, the building process was an absolute joy. They’re just like a group of happy elves.” Chief among the Shelton collaborative team — they call themselves a “guild” but have no financial connection — is Dan Upton, the contractor who (with Leon Olson) offered Shelton a project at 1021 Laguna Street in 1994. They’ve worked together ever since. “We are problem solvers,” said Upton. “Jeff comes up with these optimistic, fun ways of thinking and fun ways of building and … we are just happy to do the fun things. He sketches, and we say, ‘Make it as fun and interesting as you want, and we’ll figure out how to build it.’ ”

Jeff Shelton Delights in the Details While there’s some debate about whether Pearl Chase, Bernhard Hoffmann, James Osborne Craig, and the other founding fellows of Santa Barbara’s aesthetic would be toasting Shelton’s evolution of the town’s traditional style or tearing out their hair out by its Spanish-MediterraneanMoorish roots, there’s no doubt that this native son has made his mark on our town. After almost 30 years of “Sheltifying” Santa Barbara’s cityscape, he shows no signs of slowing down. Current projects in the works include residences in Mission Canyon, Carpinteria, and on Cota Street, as well as the State Street undercross-

Jeff Shelton Cont'd from p. 17

For a man who specializes in creating the curvy and colorful, Shelton’s a pretty straight shooter. He loves his town, his team, and his work—and it shows. As for his method of staying true to his artistic vision and navigating his way through Santa Barbara’s notoriously complicated approval process, “I just do what I think is best for each building and each lot,” he explained. “My palette is the code and the site and the city and the people around the neighborhood. It’s an art, but ultimately nobody cares about all those details in the end. They just want to be able to have a glass of wine comfortably and happily in their house.”

A GUIDE TO THE GUILD “First the tractors come in, and they grade the site,” explained Shelton of how one client described the work of his guild, “and then this merry band of artisans show up, and they laugh and they enjoy the work, and it’s like that until they leave.” It certainly sounds like a joyful process. The Upton Construction team has played a huge part in Shelton’s work, with Matt Metcalfe recently taking over the day-to-day business as founder Dan Upton is mostly retired. Jeff ’s brother’s architectural ironwork, lamps, and other elements from David Shelton Studios are an integral part of Jeff ’s buildings. “I just say, ‘Dave, I’m going to do a balcony.’ I don’t even need to draw, and he knows what to do,” laughed Shelton.

CREATIVE CAVERN: Here’s a look inside Jeff Shelton’s wild office above, and a miniature model of the Ablitt Tower at left. Jeff ’s wife, Karin Shelton, an accomplished fine artist in her own right, wields her brush on various architectural projects and also helps with the Shelton line of fabrics, tiles, and books. Their daughter Mattie Shelton is part of the team as well, working on the fabrics, tiles, and her own line of unique shelters called Shelton Huts. (Their other daughter, Elena Shelton, works as a doula.) The “merry band” also includes sculptor/mason Andy Johnson; woodworker David Moseley; window and door specialist Royce Woodbury; lamp shades by Saul Alcaraz of

Santa Barbara Art Glass; ceramicist Linda Hail Godlis; California Pottery & Tile Works; Villa Lagoon Tile; Specialty Team Plastering; and artists Richard Wilke, Court Johnson, Katie Upton, and Ben Ciccati, among others. For about the past 15 years, the group has been meeting at the James Joyce on Tuesday afternoons. “Jeff keeps a really accurate tally of who shows up at James Joyce and when they come,” said Upton. “And at the end of the year, you get a medal if you were there the most frequently or least frequently.” “I’m a big believer in pubs,” said Shelton. “They should be every half mile, like a community living room that’s a place where people of all ages can meet and hang out.” Added Upton, “It’s been one of the great pleasures of my life to have this collaboration with Jeff to build the buildings that we have built.” n

CURB APPEAL AND CUSTOMER SERVICE

A

new garage door may not be the first thing that comes to mind when dreaming about home improvements. When it comes to curb appeal, however, a home’s garage door can make an enormous first impression. As one of the most visible parts of your home or building, replacing your garage door can provide a cost-effective facelift that transforms your home or business with relatively little effort. A walk through the showroom at Santa Barbara Overhead Door on East Gutierrez Street is both an education in garage doors, and a fun, informative experience. A plentiful array of sizes, styles, materials, and colors are on display, and explained by the friendly, well-versed team members. With the push of a button, garage doors appear and disappear to showcase all types of doors. If you thought all garage doors were created equal, a visit to Santa Barbara Overhead Door will quickly change your mind. The staff deftly demonstrates the differences between the types of doors and answers all your questions. From aluminum and steel, in single-panel and sectional styles, to barnstyle doors in both wood and steel, and custom carriage house, mixed panel and French viewstyle doors, the options are seemingly endless. A top-of-the-line carriage house-style wood door, for example, can be customized to your exact specifications. The stain-grade wood of these doors shows off the grain, while the “clavos” or hammered iron studs add to the authentic, traditional look. Jim and Jennifer Willis founded Santa Barbara Overhead Door over 10 years ago to meet the needs of local homeowners, with an emphasis on customer service that has remained the guiding principle of their business. The husband-and-wife team believes that the word service stands for "satisfaction, excellence, reliability, value, integrity, customer-oriented and exceeding expecta-

Accredited by the Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation, as members of the Santa Barbara Contractors Association, Santa Barbara Overhead Door has attained the highest level of professionalism awarded within the industry. The status "requires that we pursue continuing education and knowledge of the latest information and policies in the industry," Willis said. In addition to Quality of workmanship and professional standards, our technicians are also trained to think creatively out of the box, to appeal to the design needs of the community, which develops a sense of pride amongst the team. Jennifer explained. The company is a California state licensed specialty contractor that serves homeowners, business owners, the U.S. government, fire and police agencies, and property managers throughout Ventura and Santa Barbara counties. Besides maintaining all the overhead doors for the City of Santa Barbara, the company also serves the United Parcel Service, Federal Express, and many of the local SBCA Contractors and Small Business Owners in the area. Jennifer Willis explained some of the shifting trends in the industry: "We have certainly seen changes and CEO over time: from flat panel slab doors with side-mounted hardware and springs, to metal sectional doors that roll up. The current trending designs include aluminum frame and glass doors, cedar-plank style, carriage house wood or steel-overlay doors. We even have copper, stainless steel or flush designs with a variety of window options." Rolling shutter operating systems were recently incorporated into the company’s line of offerings.

If it’s smooth, it’s been machine-cut, and the chair was made after 1860. If it’s rough, then it’s hand-cut, and the piece is likely much older. For china, pottery, and glassware, she advised, “Check for chips and cracks with your fingers as well as your eyes. Run your finger over all of the edges.”

manufactured products, antiques were built to last a lifetime. These high-quality items can be a chic, unique, and eco-conscious way to furnish your home. But you need to know what to look for. Antiques dealer Anne Luther founded Raggedy Anneteques at age 14, selling her wares at flea markets and swap meets. She shared some tips during a recent walk through the Antique Center Mall on Hollister Avenue, where her collections are on display (she also has space at the Summerland Antique Collective).

DON’T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER: “Don’t think because you see a rack of Hawaiian shirts when you walk in that there ANNE-TIQUES: won’t be anything in the store for you,” said Luther. “Multi-dealer collectives often have a mix of dealers with a range of items to offer. Shopping at these kinds of places saves you time and helps you develop your own style. Dealers will sometimes have to buy an entire estate or box at auction to get the items they really want. So make sure to look closely. That Asian art dealer may also have a small box of English china in the corner. You never know.” This is also a good way to find bargains, she said.

DISCRIMINATE, BUT DON’T HOARD: “It takes three of something to make a collection,” said Luther. If you have tabletop items, like lion figurines for example, “when you display them at home, you want to put them on a tray to give them Anne Luther's collection can be found at the Antique Center Mall on Hollister Avenue. a little more presence and interest.

Confined to Quarters, Not to Canvas

W

hen the pandemic stuck Maryvonne

LaParlière in her new Solvang home last spring, the white walls and unfinished surfaces didn’t stand a chance against the artist’s love of color. The French-born, École des Beaux-Arts–educated artist has specialized in decorative art for decades but focused primarily on commissions—like the three vibrant murals that grace the walls of Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital—and work for sale in galleries. “When COVID arrived, it was not even like fight or flight, because we didn’t know what to fight exactly and we couldn’t fly anywhere,” said LaParlière, who closed her gallery in Amherst, Virginia, with the shutdown. “I had to figure out what to do.” She looked around the house and spotted two nightstands in the bedroom that “were good quality but kind of blah.” So she painted them to match the botanical design on her bedspread. Then it was on to faux painting a frieze of tiles in trompe l’oeil style, inspired by antique Spanish/Portuguese ceramic tiles. Staying with Mediterranean-inspired vernacular, she hand-painted her patio and did an entire outdoor barbecue area. “I decided to do the wall near my iron gate and a little barbecue sink, which I did painted in blue and white in the azulejos Portuguese style,” says the artist, whose work can be found in the collections of celebrities such as Priscilla Pres-

ley, Larry Hagman, Fannie Flagg, Julia Roberts, and Susan Sarandon, as well as the Orient Express Hotels chain, University of Virginia, and Alliance Française of Washington, D.C. In 2010, after a solo exhibition at the French Embassy, she was even decorated by the French Ambassador as a Knight in the Order of the Palms in recognition of her talent and for bringing French culture to so many in America. Painting her way through the pandemic kept LaParlière’s spirits high, as did living in such a beautiful place. She transformed the steps leading up to her house into a colorful entryway, painting images of the nearby mission and gathering inspiration from all the local flora and fauna; “boring furniture” pieces like chests, trunks, and tables were transformed into colorful works of art; and borders around her windows became showcases for more hand-painted tilework. Now that things are starting to open up, she is eager to work with new clients, as well as in her own home—if she can find an empty surface. Said LaParlière, “I will never stop.”

Exploring the AMBRIZ

KINGDOM OF PLANTS

T

here’s no signage outside his unas-

suming digs, but an urban rainforest’s worth of living treasures is tucked into Joe Ambriz’s Carpinteria greenhouses. Everything from orchids (he specializes in Laelia anceps and Cattleya) to air plants, as well as a tempting variety of succulents, flowering cacti, and caudiciforms lines the aisles of Ambriz Kingdom of Plants, many of which have been raised from seed by the man himself. “I have a love that spreads across the whole plant world,” says Ambriz, showing off a tableful of exotic pot arrangements, some of which he’s been cultivating for almost a decade. “I try to do as much as I can from seed because a lot of the oddball, rare stuff isn’t easy to find in abundance, so by seed I’m able to create a whole bunch of rare plants.” Ambriz got his start with orchids — a friend gifted him with a cymbidium, and when it died a year later, he was determined to learn how to keep it alive. That sent him into a deep dive into the world of horticulture: first as a hobbyist — at the time he was working as the percussion director for Santa Barbara High, his alma mater — and then working for 7 Day Nursery, with a small area for cultivation at Island View Nursery. When that property sold,

his current spot became available, and he leaped at the opportunity for a kingdom of his own about five years ago. Until the pandemic hit, Ambriz made the bulk of his sales exhibiting at orchid shows, including the Santa Barbara International Orchid Show, which was shut down for the past two years. Since then, he’s pivoted his efforts toward retail sales, and that loss is a gain for local plant lovers. While there are certainly plenty of colorful orchids on hand, the oddball assortment of agaves, aloes, bromeliads, tillandsia, and multitudes more are all equally exciting. 4998 Foothill Rd., Carpinteria, open by appointment, (805) 570-5792

passion for exotic textiles and a yearning for travel—fed by her time as a flight attendant for American Airlines — propelled Montecito-based Tamara Cajuste into the world of home decor. Indian Pink Pillows, which Tamara and her husband, JP Cajuste, founded in 2007, specializes in vibrant, one-of-a-kind pillows and bolsters that incorporate vintage textiles from around the world. “I think of pillows as the jewelry of the house, and they are such a great way to accessorize and accent your home,” said Tamara. “They tie everything together: They can tie a rug

A

new line of luxury accessories by designer Joel Chauran melds his years as a professional horse trainer with his longtime career as a home furnishings product developer for brands such as Pottery Barn, Pier 1, Target, Neiman Marcus, and Williams Sonoma. In addition to horse-inspired bags, jewelry, and accessories, Urban-Equestrian’s line of feather pillows embraces the sturdy yet elegant materials of contemporary riders. Coronado suede, Coronado cowhide, and Adagio cowhide leather pillows are

available in a variety of colors, shapes, and styles, all of which are designed to work together with an emphasis on both style and comfort. “I like to layer pillows together,” said Chauran, working from his studio in the hills near the Santa Barbara Bowl. “Refreshing your pillows and even rearranging the ones that you have really is a quick fix to give new life to an old room. I’m always thinking about how I could put this one together with that one; I always have different combinations in my head when I’m designing.” 


HOME & GARDEN Seasons Star in

Lush Life Cookbook alerie Rice brings a

seasonal symphony of gardening, cooking, and entertaining to Lush Life, a glossy new cookbook from the author of eatdrinkgarden .com. “We’re so lucky that you can grow year-round gardens here,” said Rice, who populated her first book with 150 seasonal recipes, including cocktails, entertaining tips, wine pairing advice from renowned expert Rajat Parr, and gorgeous photography by Gemma and Andrew Ingalls. “It’s kind of a handbook for life here in Santa Barbara,” said Rice, who believes the key to deliciousness all starts in the garden. “When you grow in season, it not only tastes better and works better but also is great for palate fatigue.” She suggests starting “with a sunny spot in your garden and make sure you have great soil” and then mixing compost and organic potting soil together and calendaring at least two days a week to work in the dirt. Keep the garden where you can see it from the kitchen. “Grow something that you really love to eat so you’re excited to go out there and harvest it,” she said. “And grow what is appropriate for the season.” With this in mind, each section of Lush Life starts with tips on what to eat for that season and what to plant for the next season. “What grows together goes together,” advised Rice, “so whether you’re pulling it from your garden or walking around the Tuesday Farmers’ Market, a lot of the stuff that’s offered is just delicious together.”  Here is a streamlined version of her spring

SALAD: Boil 6 to 8 medium golden beets and cool. Slice 6 blood oranges into ½-inch-thick slices, and place in a bowl with any reserved juices from the cutting board. Toss the beets with 2 cups of lightly packed watercress or mâche, arrange in a shallow bowl or platter, and tuck in the orange slices. Taste for seasoning and add more dressing, if needed.

Though he designs all sorts of items, textiles are particularly dear to his heart. “I’m just drawn to all of the different techniques that you can do with fabric to customize things, and so it becomes this playground of different embroideries and different stitches and different folding and ruching and whatnot,” said Chauran. “I just can’t seem to get enough of it.”

Rewilding a Former Golf Course

Birds Are Flocking to UCSB’s North Campus Open Space by Hugh Ranson,

MEMBER OF THE SANTA BARBARA AUDUBON SOCIETY

o be in love with nature is an altogether bittersweet experience. The observation of wildlife is endlessly fascinating, but the daily news of the decline of the natural world is difficult to stomach. Whenever good news is publicized, therefore, there is cause for celebration. A year ago, I was introduced to a book that raised my hope level several notches. Wilding, by Isabella Tree (yes, her real name) is the account of the transformation of a 3,500-acre estate in southern England that she and her husband inherited. Most of the land had for centuries been devoted to farming, and for several years, the couple unsuccessfully attempted to turn a profit on soil that was just worn out. Eventually, they realized that they had lost the battle and searched for other uses for the land. Inspired by rewilding projects in Europe, they decided to let nature take over. At first, progress was slow, but after researching the types of herbivores that would have grazed the land in centuries past, they judiciously reintroduced species of various sizes. The transformation to the land was almost immediate. Natural vegetation proliferated, and the fauna soon followed. An estate that had been quite sterile now heaves with life, and several species that have been in serious decline in the U.K., including turtle doves and nightingales, have become common on the estate. Last year, after an absence of 604 years in the U.K., white storks nested there. The Knepp project is a blueprint for how wildlife can be brought back from the brink. Closer to home, a rather remarkable transformation is taking place in west Goleta at the 34

former Ocean Meadows golf course, situated at the north end of Devereux Slough. A few years ago, the golf course was purchased with the view to restore the upper slough to something approaching its former self. Wetlands are an endangered habitat in Southern California, with only fragments left of what once were major ecosystems. Such wetlands are vital to migrating shorebirds and to many nesting species, such as the endangered Belding’s Savannah sparrow. UCSB and various other agencies have been hard at work on the project, removing acres of soil that had been added to create the golf course, planting native vegetation (much of which has been propagated from local plants), and creating new wetlands. The fruits of their labors are becoming apparent, and the great news is that the reserve, known as North Campus Open Space, is now open to the public. Parking and access to the reserve is along Whittier Drive, and there are wide gravel trails to follow that give excellent views over the wetlands. There is still a lot of work to be done and irrigation pipes are much in evidence, but it is easy to imagine what an important habitat this will become, and, indeed, already is. Wildlife is flocking to the reserve. On a recent walk, I saw several species of shorebirds feeding on invertebrates along the muddy margins of the estuary to fuel up for their long Arctic journey. Belding’s Savannah sparrows were busy nesting. A surprise was a dazzling male hooded merganser on one of the ponds. A pair of Canada Geese was already tending to several goslings. It’s good to keep these hopeful examples in our back pockets for when the bad news threatens to overwhelm us. n INDEPENDENT.COM

In Hawai‘i, they are made of many kinds of fragrant flowers, ti or spicy maile leaves, shells, seeds and nuts, feathers, dollar bills, or candy. And they might be piled up to the student’s chin depending on how many relatives attend the commencement. The graduation lei here on the mainland is typically made of purple Dendrobium orchids and shipped in plastic boxes from far away. Making your own lei cuts down on your carbon footprint.

BROING OUT: Caden (#18) and Jared (#14) Vom Steeg helped march San Marcos through an unbeaten regular season with a 12-0-1 record.

Vom Steeg Twins Rising Through the Ranks

After Near-Perfect Senior Season as Royals, They Sign Letters of Intent with UCSB by Victor Bryant

L

ike a lot of youth players in the Santa Barbara community, Caden and Jared Vom Steeg enrolled in Santa Barbara Soccer Club as soon as they were old enough. As the twin sons of UCSB men’s soccer coach Tim Vom Steeg, their development as players was closely monitored and well planned. For their junior year of high school, they joined the Real So Cal Soccer Club, as part of the U.S. Soccer Developmental Academy league, which includes a full 10-month calendar. “After their sophomore years, they progressed to the level where I thought they needed to be exposed to the best players in the country,” Tim Vom Steeg said. “We had conversations about what was going to happen for their senior year. We were always trying to find the situation where they were going to continue to develop as players, and we felt like they were going to continue to develop in town.” Much like former Santa Barbara High and UCSB star goalkeeper Ben Roach, who spent a couple of years at the Academy before returning to Santa Barbara High for his senior season to lead the Dons to the CIF title, the Vom Steeg twins put together special senior seasons at San Marcos High. The Royals were unbeaten in the regular season with a 12-0-1 record and claimed their first outright Channel League title since 2002, by virtue of a 2-1 victory over rival Santa Barbara on April 29. “This team is incredible. The most passion I’ve ever played with on a team, the most fight and the most energy,” Jared Vom Steeg said. “It’s an honor to play with them; they put everything on the field. Guys like A.J. Ranii—their hearts are in it every single game.” The road to a CIF championship began with 3-0 first-round victory over Oxnard, but in the second round at Norwalk, the Royals found themselves in a dogfight after surrendering an early goal. With time running out and chance after chance coming up empty, Caden Vom Steeg finally found an equalizer in stoppage time, sending the match into overtime. Miguel Mondragon sent in a cross to the back post that found the head of Jared Vom Steeg,

who put it across the box to his brother for the goal. “Going into the season, I knew I had to put some good performances together to help our team get some victories, so being able to carry that out and score some important goals was really satisfying,” Caden Vom Steeg said. “I’m glad that I could help the team in that way.” After two overtime periods, the teams were still deadlocked at 1-1, and Norwalk advanced after penalty kicks (5-4). It was an extremely physical match on a very narrow field, and the upset loss was especially tough to swallow, considering the way San Marcos controlled possession and created far more scoring chances than Norwalk. “It’s tough. It’s really brutal. We were in front of the net like five to six times, so many times that we could have just put the game away,” Jared Vom Steeg said. “But that’s soccer. Sometimes it doesn’t go our way. It’s tough for the seniors because it’s our last game.” The twins will continue their development under their father’s tutelage, as they have signed National Letters of Intent to play at UCSB as a part of an eightplayer recruiting class. According to their father, they both have very high ceilings as players. “My older two boys physically developed really early. They were able to use the physical side of the game and just be ahead of everybody,” Tim Vom Steeg said. “Jared and Caden have physically developed later, which is honestly most of the cases with twins. I think about a year and half ago is when they really started to grow and then they got quicker and faster, which completely changed their games.” The prospect of the Vom Steeg twins being “late bloomers” could really serve them well as they advance in their soccer careers at UCSB. Their understanding of the game has always been advanced for their age, and the ability to see the game and physically make plays is a formidable combination. After years of watching matches from the stands, the Vom Steeg twins will make the Harder stadium turf their own this fall. Gaucho soccer looks to return to normalcy after the fall 2020 season was canceled in favor of a shortened spring exhibition season due to COVID-19. n

And that’s an international shine. While Formica is classically trained in French and Italian cuisine, his heritage is half-Italian, half-Lebanese, with chefs on both sides. “I’m always trying to diversify my influences,” explained Formica, who’s constantly looking for connections and backstories, tracing the interwoven connections of Spanish influences in the Philippines, for example. As Pico’s co-owner Will Henry put it, “Chef ’s passion is to work with local farmers and ranchers in order to create an interesting and eclectic menu based on his culinary travels.” That outlook is underlined during the monthly winemaker dinner series dinners, which kicked off on April 29, pairing Angela Osborne’s elegant wines from A Tribute to Grace with Mangalitsa pork from Winfield Farm in Buellton. That gorgeous pork chop sat upon some polenta that Winfield Farm owner Bruce Steele grew and the pandemic’s tiers and openings and closings over ground himself just for the dinner.

It adds to the story.” The wine dinner story setting doesn’t get much more appropriate than Pico, as Henry co-owns Lumen Wines with Lane Tanner, the store is also a retail wine shop, and the restaurant is surrounded by wine country. But as occasionally stodgy wine dinners go, these affairs are pretty informal — you sit only with your party, you pick the time you want to dine, and the winemaker and food purveyor wander from table to table, dropping tasting notes, travel tidbits, and gossip. What’s more, Formica explained, “The menu items are curated specifically for the event and aren’t on the regular menu.” Formica couldn’t be happier to be working in “Little L.A.” after his most recent time living in the real Los Angeles, working with nationally known hospitality groups. “It wasn’t for us,” admitted Formica readily. Luckily, he and his wife, Liz Remitz — who now works the front-of-house and helps organize the wine program at Pico — knew Clark Staub from Full of Life Flatbread and had told him, “If you READY TO SHINE: After being hired at Pico just before the pandemic, Chef know of anybody looking for a chef, give me a holJohn Wayne Formica is ready to share his skills on such dishes as “classy” clam ler.” The holler came when Pico was going through chowder (above left) and seasonal rhubarb tart (above right). a revamp, and Formica held what he calls “a nine-

That fuzzy forecast has cleared up significantly with the announcement that Courthouse Tavern will be moving into the coveted space overlooking the Santa Barbara County Courthouse and Sunken Gardens. “Looking forward to hosting friends and visitors in a friendly neighborhood restaurant and bar atmosphere,” said owner Warren Butler, who is also the managing partner at Chase Restaurant & Lounge. Courthouse Tavern will be serving American cuisine for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and will have happy hour all day with drink specials and small plates. The eatery will also be available for private parties and catering. The opening date is scheduled for June 15 when COVID-19 restrictions are lifted for the state.

On Solo Debut, Hunter Hawkins Discovers Her Voice

P

hase , the debut recording by Santa Barbara native Hunter Hawkins, sounds so self-assured that it would be easy to assume that she’s always been this way. What you are hearing, however, is far from the whole story. Growing up in a world that rewards compliance and discourages individuality, true self-expression often gets hidden behind closed doors. The journey she took to get to where she is now is one that a lot of young artists could learn from. Having been identified at an early age as a musical prodigy, Hawkins fulfilled the image of a teen pop star—“bubbly, feminine, and primarily pink.” As a freshman in high school, she was already competing successfully in Santa Barbara’s Teen Star and winning leading roles in musical theater productions, but despite this early success, she felt there was more to her than these outlets could express.

GREEN STAR: Hawkins finds inspiration in the spectrum of natural colors.

Leaving conventional high school in her sophomore year for Middle College allowed Hawkins to pursue her passion in the professional musical theater world, where she began to attract attention from talent agents and famous mentors. After an early round of college applications yielded a frustrating set of waitlists, Hawkins moved in a new direction—Los Angeles, and the positions behind, rather than in front of, the camera. In the summer of 2019, close mentor Kenny Loggins encouraged Hawkins to join him at the Hawaiian Songwriting Festival, a trip that changed her life. Having a longstanding practice of writing poetry meant that writing lyrics came relatively easily. The process of songwriting just felt so right. Writing original songs allowed Hawkins to take a peek inside her mind and find a new perspective. “I could take a look at my life in a way that was more observant and didn’t come from a place of needing anything to be fixed,” she said. “I had been searching for authenticity for so long,” Hawkins told me, adding that it was through this practice that she found a sense of expansion that had not previously been available to her. It was this shift in outlook—from trying to be a perfect teen pop star to writing her own songs—that led her to explore gender fluidity and bisexuality as well as freedom of self-expression. On Phase, each carefully curated song has a corresponding image and color that helps depict the fascinating and empowering story of Hawkins’s complex but beautiful life. Now content and flourishing in her new self-created role, Hawkins sees her struggles with early success and disappointment as blessings in disguise that, when mashed together, created a beautiful harmony of a person. —Mike Janey

CHRISTINA APOSTOLOPOULOS releases new songs

T

hough she’s liv ing in Los Angeles right now, Christina Apostolopoulos is tying her budding musical career to Santa Barbara, where she attended high school, worked at Crushcakes and Girls Rock, performed at venues such as Restaurant Roy and Oreana Winery, NEW SONG: “Shiny and New” just came out. and filmed music videos for the songs “Gratified” (at SOhO and around the Funk Zone) and “Shiny & New.” That video, which was directed by fellow S.B. High grad Eliana Mullins, bops around many parts of town, most prominently outside The Granada Theatre parking garage, and was recently screened during SBIFF. Taking guitar lessons since the age of 8 and busking at the farmers’ markets since a teenager, Apostolopoulos studied guitar performance at the Berklee College of Music and released her first full-length album, The Only Thing I’m Good At, in 2018 following a successful Kickstarter campaign. On April 30, she released her latest music video, also shot in Santa Barbara, for “Sleep at Night,” a song about living alone during the quarantine. “I feel incredibly lucky to have been able to work on creative projects during such a difficult year in the music industry,” explained Apostolopoulos, who credits new technology for allowing her to lay down tracks without being in the same room as other musicians. “That being said, going to shows and playing shows was, and is, a huge part of my identity. I think all musicians are feeling that loss deeply right now.” See christinaapostolopoulos.com. —Matt Kettmann

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny LIBRA

CANCER

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): Aries playwright Samuel Beckett wrote

the play Waiting for Godot. At one point in the tale, the character named Estragon suggests it might be possible, even desirable, to “dance first and think afterwards.” In response, the character named Pozzo says, “By all means, nothing simpler. It’s the natural order.” With that in mind, and in accordance with astrological omens, I am going to encourage you to dance first and think afterwards as much as possible in the coming weeks. In my opinion, your ability to analyze and reason will thrive to the degree that you encourage your body to engage in enjoyable free-form play. Your power to make good decisions will grow as you take really good care of your physical organism and give it an abundance of pleasure and release.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): As you enter a phase when gradual,

incremental progress is the best progress possible, I offer you the concluding lines of Taurus poet Adrienne Rich’s poem “From a Survivor”: “not as a leap, but a succession of brief, amazing movements, each one making possible the next.” I especially want to call your attention to the fact that the small steps can be “brief, amazing movements.” Don’t underestimate the power of minor, subtle, regular breakthroughs.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Here’s a public service announcement

for you Geminis from the planet and god Mercury: You’re under no obligation to be the same person you were three years ago, or six months ago, or last week — or even five minutes ago, for that matter. Mercury furthermore wants you to know that you have been authorized to begin a period of improvisation and experimentation, hopefully guided by a single overriding directive: what feels most fun and interesting to you. In the coming weeks it will be more important to create yourself anew than to know precisely who you are.

WEEK OF MAY 20

(June 21-July 22): As a Zen Buddhist priest for 47 years,

(Sept. 23-Oct. 22): My friend Jenny’s Swedish grand-

Kōshō Uchiyama was knowledgeable about the power that illusions can wield over our imaginations. “If we’re not careful,” he said, “we are apt to grant ultimate value to something we’ve just made up in our heads.” I won’t tell you the examples from my own life that prove his point, because they’re too embarrassing. And I’m happy to report that I don’t think you’re anywhere near granting ultimate value to something you’ve just made up in your head. But I do advise you to be on the lookout for milder versions of that phenomenon.

mother used to say to her on a semi-regular basis, “Åh tänk om vi vore korkade, vi skulle vara så lyckliga,” meaning, “If only we were stupid, we would be so happy.” In the coming weeks, I am asking you to disprove that folk wisdom. According to my analysis of the astrological potentials, now is a favorable time for you to explore ways in which your intelligence might enhance and deepen your enjoyment of life. Your motto should be: “The smarter we are, the happier we will be.”

LEO

(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Sometime soon, I invite you to speak

SCORPIO

Working as a film director and aviation pioneer, he became a wealthy philanthropist. But as he aged, he became increasingly eccentric and reclusive. For the last 10 years of his life, he lived in expensive hotels, where he placed strict and often absurd demands on the hotel staff. For example, if he called on room service to bring him a meal that included peas, he would measure the peas with a ruler and send back any he deemed too big. I do hope that you Capricorns will also have an intense focus on mastering the details in the coming weeks — but not as intense or misguided as that nonsensical obsession.

AQUARIUS

(July 23-Aug. 22): Leo-born professor Sibelan Forrester is

a message similar to what poet Kenneth Rexroth once delivered to a special person in his life. He wrote, “Your tongue thrums and moves / Into me, and I become / Hollow and blaze with / Whirling light, like the inside / Of a vast expanding pearl.” Do you know anyone who might be receptive to hearing such lyrical praise? If not, create a fantasy character in your imagination to whom you can say it. On the other hand, maybe you do know a real person who would appreciate an earthier, less poetical tribute. If so, please convey it; something akin to this: “Your influence on me amplifies my ability to be my best self.” Now is a perfect time to honor and extol and reward those who move you and excite you.

(Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarian author Charles Dickens

VIRGO

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Author Aldous Huxley said, “I can sym-

PISCES

an expert on charms, spells, and incantations in Russian folklore. She wrote, “An empty place where no one can see or hear what one says is the proper locus for working magic.” Spells often start with these words, she added: “I rise up, saying a blessing. I go out, crossing myself, and I go to an open field.” Whether or not you have Russian heritage, Leo, I see the immediate future as being a good time for you to perform magic in an open field with no one else around. What might be the intention of your magic? How about something like this: “I ask my guides and ancestors to help me offer my most inspired largesse so as to serve the health and inspiration and liberation of the people whose lives I touch.”

(Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Spiritual author Stephen Russell wrote,

“Don’t mask or deny your vulnerability: It is your greatest asset.” That’s an exaggeration, in my opinion. Vulnerability is a greater asset than your intelligence, compassion, and creativity? Not in my view. But I do recognize the high value of vulnerability, especially for you Virgos during the next three weeks. “Be vulnerable,” Russell continues. “Quake and shake in your boots with it. The new bounty and beauty that are coming to you, in the form of people, situations, and things, can only come to you when you are vulnerable — open.”

pathize with people’s pains, but not with their pleasures. There is something curiously boring about somebody else’s happiness.” To that I reply, “Other people’s pleasure and happiness bored you? Maybe you were suffering from raging narcissism and an addiction to cynicism.” In any case, Sagittarius, I hope you won’t be like Huxley in the next few weeks. I believe you could glean useful insights and derive personal benefits from knowing about and appreciating the joys of others.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn businessman Howard

Hughes (1905-1976) had great success early in his life.

(1812-1870) was famous and popular. Audiences packed the halls where he did public lectures and readings. His favorite way to prepare for these evening events was to spend the day drinking a pint of champagne, as well as generous servings of rum, cream, and sherry with eggs beaten into the mix. I don’t have a problem with that — whatever works, right? — but I suggest a different approach for your upcoming appointments with greater visibility and prominence. Like what? How about sexy meditations on the gratitude you feel for your expanding possibilities? How about fun fantasies focusing on how you’ll use your increased clout?

(Feb. 19-Mar. 20): In his upcoming book The Dictionary

of Obscure Sorrows, John Koenig proposes that we begin using “monachopsis,” a word he coined. He defines it as follows: “the feeling of being out of place, as maladapted to your surroundings as a seal on a beach — lumbering, clumsy, easily distracted, huddled in the company of other misfits, unable to recognize the ambient roar of your intended habitat, in which you’d be fluidly, brilliantly, effortlessly at home.” Even if you have spent too much time lately experiencing monachopsis, my dear, I predict this malaise will soon dissipate and give way to an extended phase of being fluidly, brilliantly, effortlessly at home.
