What’s been your favorite story to report on? The Save the San Marcos Foothills campaign. It was the first time I interviewed someone in person for a story, so it was nerveracking but really exciting. I also really liked getting to see the efforts of a grassroots movement firsthand. You’re graduating soon. What’s next? I’m heading back home to Pasadena for the summer before I move to New York in the fall. As for long-term goals, I hope to have a career that allows me to combine political science and journalism and later go to grad school. And, ideally, end up back in California.

Healing Justice Asks for Cultural Center
by Nick Welsh n the first anniversary of George Floyd’s murder at the knee of a Minneapolis police officer, Santa Barbara’s City Council invited the four women leading Santa Barbara’s Healing Justice movement to give a presentation on their efforts to create a Black and African American Cultural Center. After providing a rundown on what they’d accomplished in the past year—a virtual Juneteenth celebration visited by 13,000 people, the creation of a commission to explore what kind of police review board the City of Santa Barbara would have, and the first step in an effort to chronicle the architectural history of Black Santa Barbara—Simone Akila Ruskamp got straight to the point. The group needed ‘HERE TO CASH THE CHECK’: Healing Justice S.B.’s Simone Akila Ruskamp (left), Krystle Farmer Sieghart (right), Leticia $500,000 from City Hall over a two-year Forney Resch, and Mariah Jones-Bisquera pitched a $500,000 Black cultural center to the City Council on Tuesday, the first period to cover the rent for a building that anniversary of George Floyd’s murder. could function as the repository for the Black history being created today.

She suggested that councilmembers Sneddon and Gutierrez form a subcommittee that might help Healing Justice raise private donations. The matter will come back to the council on June 9, at which time the council will deliberate over how much it can contribn ute.

Santa Barbara City Council Will Consider $500,000 Funding June 9
Santa Barbara’s median home prices jumped higher and faster than any of the 40 counties in which the California Association of Realtors tracks sales. The median home sale price in S.B. jumped from $600,000 last April to $1.1 million this April, an increase of 83 percent. Statewide, the average jumped by 34 percent. According to the statewide Realtors association, the number of homes selling for more than the asking price has achieved new record levels, and the length of time inventory remains on the market has been cut in half. More than $10 million in rental and related payment assistance has gone to more than 4,000 households and individuals in the county. Administered by the United Way, several pots of money, both governmental and philanthropic, have helped residents keep body and soul together through the pandemic months. And it’s not over yet. “I do not have a crystal ball,” said United Way CEO Steve Ortiz, “but I expect the impacts of the pandemic to continue through 2022 and beyond.” Full story at independent.com/ UW-rental-assistance.
PUBLIC SAFETY Rep. Salud Carbajal introduced the Extreme Risk Protection Order Act of 2021 at a press conference on 5/25. If passed, the bill would implement federal legislation allowing family members and law enforcement to exercise gun restraining measures to prevent potential gun violence. Carbajal’s announcement comes two days after the seventh anniversary of the 2014 Isla Vista killing spree that left seven dead and led to the state’s Extreme Risk Protection Order law. Since the state law’s passage, gun restraining orders have been requested 88 times in Congressional District 24, Carbajal said.
COURTS & CRIME S.B. police issued evacuation and shelter-in-place orders to nearby residents after a distraught man barricaded himself inside his apartment on the 100 block of Oceano Avenue on 5/25. The officers made brief contact with the suspect, Skyler Stephen Prophet, 26, before he allegedly assaulted an officer and then started breaking windows inside the apartment. After several hours of attempted negotiations, SWAT deployed a chemical agent into the apartment, and Prophet surrendered to officers. He is charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon against a peace officer and two misdemeanors and is being held in County Jail on $50,000 bail. As seen in a video posted to the Instagram account Barstool SBCC, at least one person was assaulted near a crowd while another individual fired a gun into the air sometime late 5/21 or early 5/22 on the 6600 block of Sueño Road in Isla Vista. Anyone with information about the incident or the suspect(s) can contact the Criminal Investigations Bureau at (805) 681-4150 or leave an anonymous tip at (805) 681-4171 or sbsheriff.org/home/ anonymous-tip.

Loma Fire Fully Contained

PUBLIC SAFETY S.B. COU NTY F I R E / MI KE ELIASON
ast Thursday night’s Loma Fire—which erupted along the steep hillside running up from Loma Alta Road to Miramonte Drive, better known as TV Hill, consuming nearly 10 acres and damaging two homes — was declared 100 percent contained by the Santa Barbara City Fire Department Monday afternoon. Crews were deployed along the hillside days after the fire — which was propelled uphill by winds reaching speeds of 55 miles per hour — searching for hot spots that might set off another blaze. Given the intensity of prevailing winds and the dryness of the brush, the fire could have taken off in any direction with a sudden shift in direction. Downhill lay some of the most tightly packed housing within city limits, while uphill sits some of its most spectacular real estate. Police arrested a 23-year-old named Victor Hernandez, said to be under the influence of methamphetamine, for allegedly setting the fire. According to the police, Hernandez, currently held on $2 million bail, was a person of interest in five other fires and has been on the public safety radar since last June. Hernandez was reportedly discovered downslope from Loma Alta, and, according to police, comments Hernandez made put him at the scene of the blaze at the time it started. Hernandez has pleaded not guilty to arson of an inhabited structure, attempted arson, and reckless burning. In the aftermath, questions are emerging as to why the region’s emergency-response

The fire was reported minutes before 9 p.m. Thursday and had reached the top of the slope within about 30 minutes. Even though the fire was not started at a homeless encampment, the speed and ferocity with which it spread throughout a densely populated area of the city prompted Councilmembers Michael Jordan and Eric Friedman to push for an emergency session to discuss plans to shut down encampments in high-fire-risk areas.

According to a statement issued by Carbajal, the site could produce as much as 3 gigawatts of energy, which, he claimed, would make it the largest floating offshore wind project in the U.S. The next step, according to Carbajal, is environmental review and public comment.

The State Bar’s Office of Chief Trial Counsel had pushed for Genis to be permanently stripped of his license, but Valenzuela disagreed, noting his ongoing commitment to a 12-step recovery program and 17 character witness statements that attested to his “exceptional legal abilities,” “dedication to his clients,” and “remorse for his actions.” Nevertheless, Valenzuela argued, a twoyear suspension was appropriate to “protect the public and preserve public confidence in the profession.” She also recommended Genis be placed on three years of probation, re-familiarize himself with the California Rules of Professional Conduct, and enroll in State Bar Ethics School. David Clare, Genis’s attorney, said they plan to appeal the decision and hopes to reduce the suspension “substantially.” The appeals process may take up to a year and a half, Clare explained, during which time Genis will remain an active member of the State Bar with no restrictions on his right to practice law. Genis requested that the Independent not report on Valenzuela’s recommendation, asking that the paper only cover the appeal’s outcome. “… I don’t want to have to take legal action,” he said, “but I’m not going to be a ‘victim’ of a hasty and reckless press —Tyler Hayden organ.”

COMMUNITY Luz Reyes-Martín — who was born in Mexico, grew up in L.A. County, graduated from Stanford, and moved to Goleta in 2013 — has already played many roles in the community. She’s now taking a bold step away from one of those roles — her almost six years working as the executive director of public affairs and communications at SBCC — and stepping into being the vice president of community engagement at Planned Parenthood Central Coast, a job that has more influence across three counties.

Mayoral candidate James Joyce III is calling for an equity audit of the City Charter because of the document’s male-centric language. “It’s very disappointing that in a city that has had so much incredible female leadership, we haven’t updated our charter to reflect that,” Joyce said. Assistant City Attorney John Doimas said that the city has no legal objections to updating the language to be inclusive of female leadership, and he also pointed out that the city is in line with a 2019 law that keeps its city leadership gender-diverse.

anta Barbara is on its way toward a prohibition of natural gas, but only in new construction. The ordinance that passed Tuesday in committee also provides exceptions for restaurants, among others. The new rule would move the city toward its goal of zero carbon emissions by 2035, a decade before California’s cutoff date. Energy used in buildings represents about 40 percent of the city’s greenhouse gas emissions, explained Alelia Parenteau, city energy and climate manager. While reducing natural gas in old and new buildings is a hoped-for goal, she said new construction was the first step, as one less set of pipes would be a savings for any project. It’s all part of the city’s extensive Clean Energy plan, which includes an optional switch for residents to zero-carbon-emission electricity sources this October. What constitutes new construction was unclear to Councilmember Michael Jordan, who chairs the Ordinance Committee. In addition to brand-new buildings, a remodel would count if three of four walls are demolished, a response that led him to suggest clarifying that to 75 percent of a structure when the ordinance gets its next hearing before the City Council. As well as restaurants, exceptions included projects already in the pipeline or

While a dozen people from the environmental and building community spoke in favor of the ordinance, a few were opposed, including John Switalski, who heads Californians for Balanced Energy Solutions. The industry group represents SoCalGas, among others, and was found to be texting customers and making false claims that natural gas would be banned in all circumstances. Speaking for SoCalGas, Tim Mahoney noted the company planned to deliver carbon-neutral gas by 2045 through hydrogen and renewable natural gas. The benefits of the ordinance would extend beyond Santa Barbara, said Liz Campos with Ventura’s Clean Air Coalition. SoCalGas claimed that expansion of a natural-gas compressor station proposed 70 yards from a Ventura elementary school was needed to serve Santa Barbara and Goleta, she said. “Please be good neighbors and recognize this is an issue of both environmental justice and social equity,” Campos said, “not just for Santa Barbara, but for the entire Southern California region. —Jean Yamamura

Can a Consensus Be Reached on Ortega Park Murals?
PAU L WEL LM AN FI LE PHOTO

he city’s application for an $8.5 million grant to fund Ortega Park’s redevelopment is due June 12, but the application is still missing up-to-date, community consensus regarding the park’s 18 murals that celebrate Chumash, Aztec, and Chicano cultures. Gathering more community input has been a focus of city staff in recent months, but achieving a true consensus has been tricky. Disputes among stakeholders, and with City Hall, have plagued the process. The latest one erupted over email, when one group accused Councilmember Alejandra Gutierrez and city government of pushing another group’s agenda. Meanwhile, a number of community members have continued to feel unheard and left out of the process. Councilmember Gutierrez, whose Eastside district includes Ortega Park, is trying to bring citizen and artist groups together to create a project design that “reflects the needs and the wants of the community.” But Gutierrez acknowledged that the city “must do better” in completing comprehensive, bilingual community outreach for this project and future ones in order to avoid leaving people and their perspectives out of the planning. “The city is an institution that can bring the community together,” she said. “I don’t want to be an institution that divides.” Despite the tensions among some stakeholders, similar visions for the park have

been shared thus far. Most everyone wants to pursue the grant application, improve the park, and ensure that the plans include meaningful artwork. Those pieces would ideally be created by local artists and youth, and could be a mixture of preserved, repainted, and new murals. On June 8, just four days before the $8.5 million grant deadline, the Parks & Recreation Department will present to the council a revised plan incorporating ideas gathered from discussions with community groups—including some of the park’s original muralists. At that time, the council is set to vote on how to proceed with the grant application. After that, Gutierrez said, it’s up to the city as a whole to “work closely with the community and try to bring them together.” —Camille Garcia

he Santa Barbara Unified School District is expanding its efforts to bring vaccines to students. Last week, the district partnered with Santa Barbara Neighborhood Clinics to create a one-day clinic at La Cumbre Junior High during school hours. Sixty-eight 7th and 8th graders were vaccinated. This week, the district partnered with the County Public Health Department to open a three-day clinic in the Santa Barbara High School cafeteria on Monday through Friday. Frann Wageneck, assistant superintendent of Student Services, said that more than 200 students, 12 years of age or older, and their family members have signed up. This clinic will also be open to the public. Earlier this month, the district organized a field trip that brought a group of students 16 and older to the Goleta Valley Cottage Hospital clinic to get vaccinated. Wageneck also gave an update on end-of-year celebrations that are coming up. The current guidelines from the state require that the ceremonies operate at 67 percent capacity of the stadium or graduation area and that attendees show proof of either vaccination or a negative test. “The little ray of sunshine is that next Tuesday, if we move into the yellow tier, we will not have to require vaccines at high school graduations or negative test results,” Wageneck said. “But in all of the ceremonies, there will be masks, screenings, and social distancing of six feet or greater.” There have been a total of 196 cases in the school district so far—109 staff and 87 students. Only 12 of those have been on district property, and Wageneck said staff cases have dropped dramatically as more than 80 percent of staff have been vaccinated. —Delaney Smith

OPEN HOUSE? The Bellosguardo Foundation has applied for permits to host guided tours and special events at the late Huguette Clark’s palatial estate.
Bellosguardo Takes Baby Steps Toward Opening
fter seven years of stubborn silence and relative inactivity, the Bellosguardo Foundation appears to be taking its first baby steps toward opening the late Huguette Clark’s palatial estate to the public. The foundation formed in 2014 and officially took possession of the property in 2017, but besides hosting a Great Gatsby–themed fundraising gala and a handful of private tours, it has not made any real progress in transforming the historic 27-room mansion and its 23 acres of manicured grounds into a modern community center to promote the arts, as Clark, an avid art collector herself, dictated in her will. Foundation president Jeremy Lindaman submitted an application to the City of Santa Barbara’s Planning Division this March stating the organization would like to start offering small guided tours and holding special events. In order to install the necessary access ramps, portable restroom trailers, and roughly 90 parking spaces, Lindaman is seeking conditionaluse and coastal-development permits from the city. While planning staff said they were in “general support” of the proposal, according to their written response to Lindaman, they took issue with the lack of detail in his application and deemed it “incomplete.” How many guests would be on each tour? they asked. How frequently would tours be conducted? During what hours? Would a shuttle service be offered? How many docents would be employed? How often would events be held, and how many people would attend? Even basic information about the ramps and restrooms was omitted, staff noted. “You have not directly answered any of our questions,” staff said. “The project plans would benefit by being better organized,” they said. Lindaman—who, according to the Foundation’s latest tax records, collects a $120,000 salary—was given the opportunity to amend and resubmit his application. —Tyler Hayden
Big Win for the Cannabis Industry in Superior Court
Busy Bee’s Organics County Permit Is Upheld

A Most Dependable Dog
SMOKE GETS IN YOUR EYES: Late Thursday night, towering walls of flame raced their way up the backside of TV Hill — up from the Loma
Alta — to the top at Miramonte Drive. Just like the economic rebound we keep hearing so much about, the flames “roared” up the hillside, ignited — we are told — by a 23-year-old meth-head pyromaniac now being held on $2 million bail. In official communiques, the alleged arsonist has been described as a “resident transient,” a perplexingly contradictory phrase that somehow seems perfect to perfectly encapsulate our confusion in coming to terms with our homeless and houseless residents. Fifty-five mile an hour winds chased the flames up the Loma Alta hillside — forbiddingly steep — bursting with a full fuel load of bone-cracking-dry brush. Rushing to the scene were 22 fire engines and 162 firefighters from five different agencies. In addition, there were 34 city cops and 25 county sheriff’s deputies on hand to handle traffic control and door-to-door evacuations. No alerts or smartphone communiques, however, were sent to residents of the lower Westside, so residents of one of the most densely populated neighborhoods on the South Coast looked on from their homes down below in a state of terror and confusion. Typically, firefighters have 24-48 hours to plan evacuations, City Fire Chief Chris Mailes told the council this Tuesday; last Thursday night, he said, it was closer to 24 seconds.

The good news? We all dodged a bullet. The bad news? There are still a lot more bullets in that gun. Although no one has gotten around to officially declaring a drought for Santa Barbara, we are now in the midst of the lowest 10-year period when it comes to rainfall in recorded history. The ground is so dry, we are told, we need to worry about fires spreading — once they start — underground via hot root systems almost as much as we do floating embers. But there is one more piece of good news. The City Council — led by councilmembers Michael Jordan and Eric Friedman — are responding with uncommon speed, clarity, courage, desperation, and determination to the threat posed by what are invariably — and more ominously — described as “homeless encampments.” (Why, I wonder, are they never called simply “camp sites”?) Either way, under COVID, the number of these campgrounds have increased substantially, as have the number of fires they’ve generated. City Fire Marshal Joe Poiré reported firefighters responded to 18 homeless-related fires during the first 23 days in May. As we are swallowed into the maw of this year’s fire season, those number will only go up. Moments before the Loma Alta hillsides conflagrated, firefighters had been dispatched to another brush fire along the railroad tracks by Figueroa Street. Only a few hours after the Loma Alta incident, they’d be dispatched again to yet another fire. Most of these fires, Poiré explained,
are accidental, some from cooking and heating, others from hot meth pipes. But some are the work of whacked-out arsonists and others by homeless people hoping to settle a score with other homeless people or with society at large. If Santa Barbara finds itself caught in the crossfire of ever-increasing homeless populations coupled with ever increasing fire risk — the collapse of Western civilization coupled with the acceleration of climate change — we are
hardly unique. It is clearly a statewide phenomenon and probably national in scope as well. Lots of cities — Santa Rosa being one of the more successful examples — have responded by creating tent cities where people living in the urban wilderness can come in from the cold. Almost immediately after last week’s fire, councilmembers Jordan and Friedman were on the horn with City Administrator Paul Casey demanding Santa Barbara follow suit. The plan is to create temporary safe urban spaces equipped with porta-potties, showers, the usual rainbow of necessary services, and, of course, a level of security to assuage the concerns of nearby neighbors. Once this is done, they argue, City Hall can then dispatch teams out along the railroad corridor, the freeway offramps, and places where people can be alone and “abate” the camps without running afoul of federal court rulings decreeing as “cruel and unusual punishment” any government actions that impede a person’s right to sleep outdoors absent the presence of alternative sleeping sites.
Of the 1,000 homeless people living within city limits, about 280 are living on the streets or in such camps. Of those, about 60 are believed to be living in about 20 camps in areas that are deemed to be “fire prone.” Until just a few months ago, there were five such camps pitched along the hillsides above Loma Alta. Had these camps not already been “abated,” the occupants could easily have been cooked last Thursday night. All this, the council was told, will cost $1 million. The question, of course, is where City Hall will pitch these new makeshift outdoor communities. And will people use them? Jordan and Friedman have proposed the parking lot by City Hall. They proposed Parking Lot 10. They proposed De la Guerra Plaza. And they also proposed the large Carrillo-Castillo commuter parking lot. This is where a village of similarly motivated “tiny homes” had been proposed a couple of years ago but with the predictably disastrous results that ensue when plans are suddenly sprung on unsuspecting neighborhoods. Also mentioned Tuesday night was Sears’ oceanically vast parking lot, Earl Warren Showgrounds, the old Staples Building, and the County Administration Building. Most striking about Tuesday night’s deliberations was the notable lack of neighborhood opposition. That will come, Mayor Cathy Murillo cautioned, just as soon as locations get more specific. But this is still good news. The council is taking action. Finally. Maybe. Two weeks from now — when the item comes back before the council. —Nick Welsh

live on the West Mesa near Mesa Lane. We have seen an enormous increase in commercial air traffic flying low and cutting across instead of staying over the ocean to save on fuel. Is this what we want in Santa Barbara? To become one large low-flying air highway where airlines can cut across wherever they please to increase their profits at the expense of our quality of life? This problem has increased exponentially in the last few years. We need to voice our concern. Apparently they feel there is little complaint, so they continue to choose their own route vs. following the suggested flight path. Please, if you have planes off course in your neighborhood, make your concern known by calling (805) 967-1900 and leave a message with the date, time, and location. Thank you for helping to keep the airlines accountable. —Kathryn McCormack, S.B.

Exceptions are for safety, which is at the pilot’s sole discretion. Also, more large jets, like 737s, are using SBA, which could be why the airplanes overhead appear so large and low.

was delighted by the excellent piece you recently published about Amtrak written by Paul Bendix. As a frequent traveler from Berkeley to Santa Barbara, I have carried on a love affair with the train for almost 80 years. First, it was the streamlined red and orange Daylight run by Southern Pacific, until Southern Pacific wanted to shed their unprofitable passenger service and the government saved the day with Amtrak. I then rode the then-elegant long-distance Starlight, which traveled daily from Seattle to Los Angeles with convenient stops in Emeryville in the East Bay and in Santa Barbara. I loved traveling down the length of the Salinas Valley, my observations informed by reading John Steinbeck. While the highway was forced to stay inland, I was fascinated by the glimpses of Vandenberg Air Force Base with its silos and gantries for launching missiles. I reveled in experiencing Point Conception, where the coast turned left and beaches were now south-facing. All this while traveling through the hills and valleys that in the early 1800s made up the vast ranchos where Mexicans and Spaniards ran their long-horned cattle. Passing the state beach at El Capitan and then seeing the Santa Ynez Mountains, I’d start gathering up my things for the pleasure of arriving in Santa Barbara, where someone I loved was waiting for me. —Phila Rogers, S.B.

Tanchis Alcerro died peacefully surrounded by family on May 18th at Serenity House in Santa Barbara, she was 96. She and her husband Ramon were the longest residents of Vista del Monte having lived there for 25 years. Tanchis was born June 30th, 1924 in Marcala, Honduras, Central America to Adan Bonilla, MD and Rosario Bonilla. She was 1 of 6 children. She met Ramon in 1947 and it was love at first sight. They were married 6 weeks later and were together for 72 years until he passed in July of 2019. They raised 3 sons and 1 daughter together, emigrating to the United States in 1958 to Boston where she got her master’s degree in social work from Boston University. They moved the family to Los Angeles in 1960. Tanchis became a psychiatric social worker at Cedar Sinai Medical center where she worked for 17 years. Raising a family in the 1960’s and 70’s could be a challenge, but not for these two. Their home was the center for the neighborhood as well as a second home for countless nieces and nephews to come to the United States and complete their University educations. They were par-
ents, counselors and friends to so many. Once their youngest son completed University in 1977, they decided it was time to return to Honduras and “retire”, which eventually became the family joke. They purchased a small private hospital, remodeled and restored it and together ran it for the next 13 years. Ramon as the administrator and Tanchis training the nursing staff all while continuing a private counseling practice from her home office. These two knew how to enjoy life. They were known for huge family celebrations and for always opening their home to family and friends. With their three sons living in Los Angeles and with a desire to slow down and “retire” again, they returned to the United States to be close to their children and grandchildren. They settled in the Palm Springs area and once again got busy with counseling and Rotary. Making many new friends in their new community. But the grandchildren were calling and Palm Springs was a bit too far away, so in 1996 they moved to Santa Barbara and Vista del Monte. Often regulars at the grandchildren’s soccer matches, swim meets and school events they made friends wherever they went. Ramon continued to work at Cottage Hospital and CALM and that expanded their circle of friends. Their legendary birthday and anniversary parties often drew 100-200 friends and family and they loved to share their celebrations. They were the ambassadors for Vista del Monte, welcoming new residents, introducing them to others and visiting residents in the health center. Tanchis was famous for her tea parties, always remembering birthdays and being there for anyone in need. But maybe most especially for her amazing nativity display each Christmas on their patio. Every year it grew a bit more as she collected more nativities and added more lights. Tanchis was preceded in death by her parents and siblings, daughter Sandra and her beloved Ramon. She is survived by son Frank Fortin (of Alhambra), daughter-in-law Maggie, grandchildren Frank Jr., Adrienne and Kristopher, son Oscar Alcerro (of Santa Bar-
bara) partner Delma Jimenez, grandson Zachary (of Portland OR) granddaughter- inlaw Sayaka, great-grandson’s Jonah (3) and Eli (1), son Ramon “Rey” Alcerro (of Santa Barbara) daughterin-law Julia, grandchildren Patrick and Elena and over 100 nieces and nephews. Her sweet smile and infectious spirit will be missed by so many. A celebration of life will be planned for later this summer. A private inurnment will be held at the Mausoleum at the Santa Barbara Mission. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hospice of Santa Barbara and Serenity House.

Dorothy Ann Currie 2/20/1935 - 5/19/2021
Dody Currie passed away peacefully at her home in Montecito, CA. Dody was predeceased by her mother, Alice Flowers, and her husbands Thomas Evans Brittingham, Franklin Otis Booth Jr, A. Frederick Gerstell and John Waugh. She is survived by her husband, Eric Small, her son Scott (wife Ella) and daughters Ashley (husband Jeff) and Stephanie (husband Steve). Dody, aka Grandmommie, is survived by nine grandchildren- Dylan, Alexandra, Connor, Audrey, Harrison, Penelope, Serena, Tommy, and Charlotte. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Dody was the only child of Alice Flowers and Malcolm Carmichael Currie. Raised in Hancock Park, Dody had idyllic childhood years until facing her first tragedy at the age of seven, when her father died suddenly. Broken hearted but, with steadfast perseverance Dody’s Los Angeles upbringing continued and her close friends from those early years remained in her life throughout. She attended Marlborough School and was a member of the class of 1952. After Marlborough, she attended Stanford and USC where she graduated in 1956 with degrees in
To submit obituaries for publication, please call (805) 965-5205 or email firstname.lastname@example.org Journalism and Elementary Education. At USC, she was a member of the Pi Beta Phi sorority. She remained a loyal Trojan throughout her life.Two short years after Dody’s college graduation, tragedy struck a second time when Dody’s mother Alice died of breast cancer. Her friends became her family and support system. Her unique combination of clever intelligence, lively sense of humor and resolute stoicism helped greatly as she navigated the world on her own. Dody’s time after college included work as an elementary school teacher for the 2nd graders at El Rodeo in Beverly Hills, a model for Bullocks Wilshire and a hostess for the television show “Beat The Genius”. Dody always enjoyed an abundance of friendships and an active social life. Her motto was “half of life is simply showing up.” At the age of 26, Dody married Tom Brittingham and moved to Wilmington, Delaware. Living on the East Coast had been a lifelong dream and these years were some of her most joyous; as Tom was full of life, loved a good party like Dody, and loved to play the piano while friends sang along to the tunes. Tom brought Mary to the marriage and together, they had Scott and Ashley. Tom and Dody moved back to California in 1963 and they owned a racehorse together, Viking Spirit, and both shared a loved of horses and hosting friends at the races on the weekends. Viking Spirit won the Californian Race at Hollywood Park in 1965 where Cary Grant presented the silver trophy. Throughout her life, she always looked fondly back on her years as a racehorse owner. Tragically, Tom died at an early age leaving Dody widowed with two young children and facing yet another lifechanging challenge. As luck would have it, staying single became a station in life that never lasted long for Dody. In 1966, she married Otis Booth merging their five children (Spike, Loren, Jenny, Scott and Ashley) and together having Stephanie, creating a large blended family of six children. Dody and Otis were married for 29 years, beginning in San Marino and later moving to the neighborhood of Bel Air where they finished raising
their children. These were busy and happy years for Dody. While she was raising children, she also served on the Board of Las Madrinas, Marlborough School, and The Music Center. Her time was spent on family, friendships and philanthropy. Otis and Dody frequently entertained and traveled. Dody was a huge fan of large holiday celebrations and always went above and beyond to make Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter magical for her family. One of her most memorable parties was Otis’s 65th birthday where she brought in Bobby Short to play the piano while their guests danced the night away in their beautiful garden. She also loved their annual family trips to the Mauna Kea Hotel in Hawaii and Rio Blanco Ranch in Colorado, and spending summers at their homes in Sun Valley, ID and the beach community of St Malo, Oceanside. Dody caught on to her husband’s outdoorsman pursuits by learning to fish, shoot and accompany him on hunting trips. Even during those more rustic trips, Dody managed to look beautiful and enjoy a vodka while being part of the camaraderie and shared laughter. She was always a good sport!After her marriage to Otis, Dody remarried three more times: the late Fred Gerstell, the late John Waugh and Eric Small. Her last decade was spent living in Montecito, CA where she enjoyed the small community and getting away from the hustle and bustle of Los Angeles. Dody was asked to join the Leadership Council at The Mayo Clinic in 2007. She enjoyed her beautiful rose garden, walks around Birnam Wood, lunches on the terrace and attending the Santa Barbara symphony. She was an avid lover of music and theatre which she always tried to pass along to her children. She lived close to her children and grandchildren and loved their frequent visits. If character is defined by how one faces adversity then her children and grandchildren have only to look to Dody. Her remarkable intelligence, understated elegance, and beauty were exceptional. When combined with her quick wit and joyfulness, life around Dody had no limits. Dody will be greatly missed by her family and lifelong
friends, as she made the world brighter for all who had the honor of knowing her and loving her. Services will be private.

Anna Morgan 5/19/2021
Anna Morgan Sadly, our mother, Anna Morgan, left us early on the morning of May19, 2021. She was an extremely strong, independent and ageless woman of the greatest generation. Wife of James Morgan, a career army soldier, she traveled from Panama to his many posts during his deployments. After his retirement, Anna lived in Mahanoy City, PA, her husband’s hometown. His family gave Anna and the entire family a warm welcome and she remained in Mahanoy City until moving to Santa Barbara in1968to join her daughter Anita. Anna worked at the UCSB cafeteria before going to Westmont College, to serve students in their Dining Commons. The students were one of Anna’s greatest joys. She was up at 5:00 every morning to make sure they had breakfast before class. She anticipated their many needs. When sports teams came back from competitions after the cafeteria was closed, they found that Anna had secretly stashed sack dinners for all of them. Students took Anna horseback riding and shared many other activities with her. Even now, decades after retirement, former Westmont students will see Anna around town and call out her name and remind her of how sweet she was to them. Her mission in life has been to take care of Dennis, her now 65-year-oldautistic son. At some point a social worker asked if Dennis should be placed in a care INDEPENDENT.COM
home. Anna was shocked by the question. “Why would he live with someone else when I am his mother and can take care of him?” …and she did, for his entire life. Anna is survived by her five children: Anita, Juan Roberto, Carol, Richard, Dennis, her three grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Anita in Santa Barbara and Carol in Simi Valley, made sure their mother received any support she needed. Richard drove from Ventura to Santa Barbara several times a week to sit and watch Jeopardy with his mother. Anna eyes would light up whenever her grandson, Gabe, came to visit, which he often did and especially when he showed her videos of her great grandson, Vince. The family would like to give special thanks to the staff at the Alpha Resource Center. Dennis is one of the longest attending clients at Alpha and, as such, he is given special status there. Anna was always appreciative to all the staff who were so kind and caring towards him, especially Martha, Nancy and Colin. Anna loved being a member of Our Lady of Sorrows Church. When she was driving, she attended Mass every single day. Being fluent in both Spanish and English, she attended either of those two masses on Sundays. A couple of years ago when she could no longer drive, she would often walk the six blocks to church. When she did not want to walk and if she couldn’t get a ride, she was known to stand on the corner of Bath and Mitcheltorina and hitchhike to church! Anna was a very determined woman. Special thanks to the doctors and nurses at Cottage Hospital, especially to Sierra, Elizabeth and Gosha. Special thanks to Dr. Winthrop, who for decades has been so kind to her, providing her with excellent eye care for her complicated vision. A special Mass for Anna will be held on Friday, May 28that 10:00 AM at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church.

Farming for the Future at Jalama Canyon Ranch
PHOTOS COURTESY OF WHITE BUFFALO LAND TRUST
White Buffalo Land Trust Leads Ambitious Regenerative Agriculture Project by Matt Kettmann
hen imagining the quintessential Cen-
tral Coast spread, it’s hard to conjure up something much more bucolic than Jalama Canyon Ranch, 1,000 acres of seemingly perfect beauty located a couple of turns off of Highway 1 about 10 minutes south of Lompoc. Near the bottom of the property, babbling brooks trickle by rustic cabins, a tall barn, and barbecue pits, with grapevines and olive groves nearby. Cradled by hillsides of aromatic sagebrush, meadows of green and yellow are textured by weathered boulders, dark clumps of elderberry, and bushy fingers of willow, with foxes, wild turkey, and raptors at play. Atop the 1,600-foot ridge, past rare tanbark oaks and mossy live oaks fed by steady springs, the views spread over squatty manzanita and wind-whipped monkeyflower in every direction: from the space discs of Vandenberg Space Force Base to the coastal peaks of the Santa Ynez Mountains, inland toward Figueroa Mountain, and then back through the Santa Ynez Valley, settling on the chalky face of a diatomaceous earth mine just one rise away. But recent tours through the property aren’t focused on such pastoral pleasantries. Rather, a visit today quickly turns into an exposé of everything that’s wrong with Jalama Canyon Ranch: the ever-eroding hillsides, the gaps in foliage between creek beds and oak forests, the milk thistle and mustard overcoming native grasses, and, perhaps most of all, the property’s underused potential for, well, almost everything, from appropriate agriculture and ecological restoration to educational opportunity and economic profitability. Don’t worry. These tours of doom aren’t all gloom, because they’re accompanied by the antidote: regenerative agriculture, an increasingly popular system of farming and ranching that aims to repair ecosystems and fight climate change while building the business backbone required to ensure long-term viability. “We want to engage in ecological restoration through agriculture,” explains Jesse Smith as we overlook a gently sloping pasture about halfway up the mountain. This will one day be home to an orchard of persimmons—a climate-

appropriate, low-water crop—and the greener slump on the hill will be turned into a passive pond. Not only will that irrigate the orchard and limit the erosion, but it will become a year-round watering hole for wildlife and encourage the uphill creep of riparian habitat below. These are just the earliest and easiest of ideas envisioned by Smith, who is the director of land stewardship for the White Buffalo Land Trust. The Summerland-based nonprofit, founded by investment advisor/conservationist Steve Finkel in 2018, acquired Jalama Canyon Ranch in April 2021 for $6 million as part of a complex and collaborative transaction involving the Land Trust for Santa Barbara County and many other supporters. They’re now focused on raising $4 million more by May 2022 to turn the ranch into a regional center for the global regenerative movement, complete with facilities to support education and research. “Summerland is our flagship farm; it’s our living laboratory,” said Ana Smith, who is Jesse’s wife and the trust’s director of program and engagement. “Jalama Canyon Ranch is our opportunity to show regenerative agriculture at scale and to work with others who have those types of land holdings to show how a transition to regenerative agriculture is possible.”
The property provides unique opportunities to do so. Aside from a functional infrastructure and ongoing operations of vineyards, olives, cattle, and sheep, the ranch occupies its very own watershed. “All the water that lands on the property stays, and no other water comes,” said Jesse of this closed system. “It’s a wonderful opportunity to demonstrate how behavior at the top of the watershed affects everything below.” Jalama Canyon also shares more than a mile of border with the Dangermond Preserve — a nearly 38-square-mile nature reserve managed by The Nature Conservancy—and is home to prominent ecotypes found across the world’s Mediterranean climates, including grasslands, oak woodlands, and
chaparral. That platform, said Jesse, “really provides increased leadership potential.” The list of projects that the Smiths and Finkel list off while driving around the ranch is daunting: raising cattle, sheep, and goats and installing fencing for them all; growing persimmons and agave; converting the olive groves and vineyards to organic; fixing crumbling roads; building ponds and water tanks; hauling away dead oak; reconnecting riparian corridors; and so on. But the potential outcomes are incredibly exciting: ranchraised meats, juices, teas, vinegars, liquors, oils, fibers, leathers, honeys, and even mushrooms; a place for all ages and interest levels to learn about where their food comes from and why agriculture doesn’t have to fight with nature; and an ecosystem that functions in a more harmonious way, with humans and animals fully integrated. There will be a lot of experimenting, observing, and readjusting at Jalama Canyon Ranch, just as there is in every regenerative project — really, just as there should be in any honest endeavor. But two foundational principles struck me as we startled foxes and ogled at ancient trees on my tour: The first is that the notion of “letting nature take over” will almost never work in places that have already been impacted by human forces, which includes so much of the world; and two, that humans and animals must be part of the solution, not simply removed. Finkel agreed. “People have been conditioned to think that our impact on land is always negative,” he said. “We reject that entire framework. A cow isn’t bad; a human isn’t bad innately.” Recognizing as much connects this “new” regenerative movement with the “old” Indigenous ways, which ruled these lands for millennia through burning, composting, and other methods. “There is a deep amount of wisdom and knowledge to guide all of these choices — we’re not making it up as we go,” explained Finkel, referring both to Indigenous practices and relatively recent strategies such as agroecology and permaculture. “We’re not the first to do this. We’re just the first to put it together in this way here.”

COVER S T O RY I’d say it’s okay to believe the hype. A steady string of regenerative success stories are emerging from around the country — the documentary The Biggest Little Farm about a property in Moorpark is probably the best-known example — and they’re even emerging from the most unlikely of places. Take self-described “good ol’ boy” Will Harris, the fourth generation of his family to farm their land in Bluffton, Georgia, where his great-grandfather settled in 1866. Like his father, Harris — who was born in 1954 and speaks with the thickest Southern drawl I’ve ever heard over the phone —ran their farm, White Oak Pastures, “very industrially for 20 years,” explaining that he was “very heavy-handed with technology,” using all manner of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, antibiotics, and hormone implants on his monoculture of cattle. “As a result, I came to see the unintended consequences — the impact on the land and the animals,” said Harris of his mid-1990s awakening and shift toward more diverse, sustainable farming methods. “I just started moving away from it.” The Harris story was typical for American farmers after World War II, when the government redirected a petrochemical industry built for bombs toward agriculture and taught farmers that they could feed the world merely by adjusting soil chemistry. “That worked for a certain amount of time,” explained Allegra Roth, the food and climate program manager for the Community Environmental Council in Santa Barbara. “But with climate change, with ecological destruction, with species going extinct, we started seeing that food production isn’t the only metric. We have to produce food for the globe, but we won’t be able to do that if we ruin our ecosystems, and the climate is marginal, and climate refugees are moving all over the world just to keep their families alive.” Harris must have felt that weight, because his decision was not an economic one. “I started making less money, but I liked it better,” said Harris, who went from just cattle to goats, sheep, rabbits, five poultry species, organic vegetables, honey, eggs, and more, with slaughterhouses and processing facilities all on-site. “It used to be very linear. Now it is very cyclical.” The land got healthier, and then came the unexpected community benefits. “The only thing you could buy in Bluffton was a stamp — today, it’s a destination,” said Harris, who now runs a store, restaurant, cabins, and an RV park. He’s the impoverished county’s largest private employer, and he proudly provides real farm learning experiences for visitors. “Not corn mazes and petting zoos,” he laughed, “but educational stuff.” He did all this before most anyone had heard of regenerative agriculture. “It was not yet a thing,” said Harris, explaining that no one was writing books or hosting conventions on the topic 25 years ago. “It grew up around us. We were not the only people in the country to start, but we were one of a very small number of people that started that early.” Conventions now happen regularly, which is how Harris met Jesse Smith in June 2016 at a soil conference in Half Moon Bay. Smith now considers Harris a mentor, friend, and inspiration, and the feelings are mutual. “He is clearly a very bright, sharp go-getter,” said Harris, who is 66 and white, of Smith, who is 36 and half-Jamaican. “I was drawn to him. We were drawn to each other.” Harris happily shares what he continues to learn with earnest farmers like Jesse. “The young people moving in this direction are not my competition,” said Harris, whose grandkids — the farm’s sixth generation — are growing up on his property. “My competition are the greenwashed products from big multinational companies that produce food pretty industrially and tout it as being different. Guys like these,” said Harris of Jesse and his ilk, “we’re all soldiers in the same army. I’ve just been on the trail longer.” Harris laments the certifications that he once thought would fight greenwashing. “It has not worked out the way we thought,” he said. “Instead, a certification industry was born, and today you can get a certification for any production system you choose, from snow white to smut black. You pick your shade of gray. So the consumer is hopelessly confused about what’s a good certification and what is low-hanging fruit.”
CATTLE AS CURE: These cattle are just part of the formula at White Oaks Pastures in Bluffton, Georgia, where Will Harris was one of the first in the country to shift to a regenerative system.

Today, the only way to know whether you’re buying food from a regenerative-minded farmer is to know those farmers and their farms. That takes an extra step, but it’s usually not too hard. “Transparency and authenticity are the shield and sword that we real producers have to use against greenwashing,” said Harris, who lets visitors to his farm see anything, “even the kill floor.” Combine that with social media, and Harris believes “someone would call bullshit if we weren’t doing it right.” And yet he remains in a more precarious place than his industrially farming neighbors, who grow peanuts, cotton, and corn with protection from crop subsidies, insurance, and other government safeguards. “My business is far riskier,” said Harris. “One E. coli recall and it’s game over for me.” That makes the diversified commerce side of his farm all the more important, which is the advice he has for Jalama Canyon Ranch. “Regenerative is absolutely necessary, but that’s step one,” said Harris. “You can have the most regenerative farm on the planet, but if you don’t have a plan in place to monetize what you produce, you’ll go broke.”
COTTON CAN BE
Regenerative ideals aren’t just affecting our food system —check that fleece and your bedsheets, too. The bed and
bath textile company Coyuchi was started 30 years ago by Christine Nielson, a pioneer of the organic cotton movement, right around the time that apparel companies like Patagonia tuned in to sourcing natural fibers. “You hear about sustainable fashion all the time, but we actually use more textiles in our home,” said Coyuchi’s CEO Eileen Mockus. “Where our cotton is coming from is also the same land that’s growing food. We should all be concerned about that.” The San Francisco–based company’s sustained success confirms that the sustainable goods market is reliably robust, and “value-based buying” saw a big uptick during the pandemic, said Mockus. “If the consumer is going to buy on their values,” she explained of their basic strategy, “we want to be able to align with their values.” The company remains on the front lines of pushing for fair trade and, increasingly, regenerative practices, from California to India, where they buy 50 percent of their organic cotton. The company supported the Jalama Canyon Ranch purchase by creating a line of bandanas and napkins that sold out quickly last year, and its foundation also contributed to White Buffalo’s campaign. “It’s a means for us to expand where we are getting our fibers from and the impact we can have on lands here and overseas,” said Mockus, who said that there is a lot left to learn about soil health when it comes to fiber farming. “What White Buffalo is learning, we’re going to be able to take that and apply it elsewhere.”

Jalama Canyon Ranch won’t be the first property in the tri-county region to implement regenerative agriculture concepts. The project’s parent organization, the White Buffalo Land Trust, is already doing so in the hills behind Summerland, as are places like Red Tail Ranch near Lompoc and Quail Springs near Cuyama. It’s quickly catching speed in vineyards too, from Solminer Wine Company in Los Olivos to Tablas Creek and Robert Hall up in Paso Robles. And the Center for Regenerative Agriculture in Ojai and SBCC’s Environmental Horticulture Program are constantly providing education on the practices. But when it comes to major projects like Jalama Canyon, here are three more properties to watch, as detailed by Allegra Roth, the CEC’s food and climate program manager.
Ted Chamberlin Ranch: The Chamberlins became the first significant ranch in Southern California to implement a serious carbon farming plan in 2016 by adding compost to the family’s rangeland along Figueroa Mountain Road. “He found that, with a one-time application of compost, he was able to increase grass growth by 20 percent,” said
MAY 27, 2021
Roth. “That means he can feed 20 percent more cattle per acre. That’s good for his pocketbook. I’m hoping to see that the soil carbon increased, which would be an indication of carbon sequestration and greenhouse gas offsets.” chamberlinranch.com
UPick Blueberry Farm: This farm along Highway 101 north of Gaviota is diverting food waste from grocery stores, turning it into compost, and experimenting with a liquid extract that can supplement synthetic fertilizer. “They’re looking at how to reclaim food waste and turn it into a biologically rich soil amendment as a replacement for synthetic fertilizer,” said Roth. “We’re still figuring out if that is the case, but that’s the research question.” santabarbarablueberries.com Limoneira: This massive citrus company in Ventura County is studying the impacts of compost and mulch on citrus. “We’re looking at all sorts of metrics,” said Roth, from increased yields to reduced greenhouse-gas emissions. “They are a global citrus conglomerate, so if they are able to prove benefits on this ranch in Santa Paula, they could implement these policies globally and have a pretty scaled impact.” limoneira.com

Whether around cotton or carrots, soil health is a critical component of regenerative agriculture, which seeks to return carbon to the earth (as compared to the atmosphere) and foster the underground ecologies that are just now being explored by science. “When I worked in Sacramento, no one was talking about soil health — that was just five years ago, so it’s pretty recent,” explained Allegra Roth of the CEC. “Now soil isn’t just about chemistry. It’s about biology. There are living organisms and ecosystems in our soil that we have barely begun to understand. It’s a frontier of science that is getting a lot of people excited.” That’s what drives the state’s program of paying farmers to adopt regenerative, carbon-trapping practices. But gray areas are abundant. “Depending on who you talk to, they have a different definition of regenerative,” said Roth. “It’s an existential question. How do we track regeneration? Is it just to implement this or that, and now it’s regenerative? Or do we have to see an increase in soil carbon, or a one percent increase in water infiltration? There’s ongoing debate about what it means to be regenerative and how to track these things, especially when we are trying to pay farmers to do this.” She’s excited about Jalama Canyon because many prior regenerative practices have come out of tropical areas, whereas this property sits in an arid, drought-prone landscape — exactly like what more of the world is going to look like with a few more decades of climate change. “If we can demonstrate and test practices in this climate, it can be really helpful for countries all over,” said Roth. “People are keeping an eye on them.”

As we wrap up our tour around the ranch, Finkel starts rhapsodizing about biltong, a South African style of dried beef that’s eaten as a snack. It’s the second product that the White Buffalo team plans to release under their commercial food brand Figure Ate, which first focused on persimmon vinegar and grew to 43 retail locations around the Central Coast and Southern California. The persimmon vinegar idea links back to Casitas Valley Farm, the property along Highway 150 between Carpinteria and Ojai where I first met and wrote about the Smiths in 2014. That too was an ambitious operation, raising pigs, curing cheese, and growing persimmons, apples, and avocado with educational offerings. But right after the Thomas Fire raged around the farm in late 2017, the property was sold. Soon after, in what Ana calls “true Santa Barbara fashion,” the Smiths met Finkel as he was starting the White Buffalo Land Trust. They became some of the first members of the team, which now includes about eight employees. At Jalama Canyon Ranch, they’ve found a drum to bang ever louder, with apparent resources to pull it off. “Having people be able to engage with all of their senses in a system like this is how people start to change their habits,” explained Ana of what will happen when their dreams grow into realities that people can touch and taste. “But we need people to have a glimpse of what’s possible.” “Sometimes people don’t understand it,” said Jesse, “because they’ve n never seen it.”

yra Huyck Manfrina was born in Lompoc on May 27, 1921. Members of the Lompoc Valley Historical Society plan to gather outside the house of the beloved historian and lifelong resident at 11 a.m. on her hundredth birthday, and she will sit on her porch as various proclamations are read in celebration of her. “My roots here go way down deep,” Myra told me with pride in a previous interview. She is a researcher, genealogist, and historian who also worked as a legal secretary and newspaper writer. “I began as a stringer for the Santa Barbara News-Press in 1950,” she explains. “I was asked to do a story about Lompoc, and of course I got carried away. The Sunday feature STILL KICKIN’: “The wonderful thing is that I still have my mind and memories,” Myra Huyck Manfrina said. turned into a three-part series.” That tendency to get carried away is why restaurants or fast food places to buy anything to eat. Myra does such thorough and meticulous work. She has researched exhaustive histories about The only one I can think of was Morinini’s Store at family and town, compiling single-spaced articles Surf. We could get candy and soda, and crackers and and volumes dense with dates and details, but cheese. We went to the Elite Bakery, westside alley always rendered compelling by her distinctively corner, 100 block South H, and got a frappe cone, well-written narrative.

Over the years, she has become very adept farming, flower seeds, and his favorite, fishing. As at using the computer and appreciates the relative Myra tells it, Walt’s love for fishing probably started ease of communication and research via the inter- when he was just a toddler sitting on a creek bank net. “The wonderful thing is that I still have my mind and memories,” she has said. “But not everyone I know that’s my age still does. I can’t reminisce with them. There are very few left, but I can’t reminisce with the ones still here because they can’t remember. And near El Jaro (on the San Julian Ranch) watching his that’s sad.” But the sharing continues. Myra is a treasure older sister pull out trout after trout with a string and trove of stories, and she delves into the past for hook attached to a willow stick pole.

The Crafter’s Library Opens May 29
he Crafter’s Library, located at 9 East Figueroa Street, is the newest resident of downtown’s La Arcada shopping mall, taking over the former location of Peanuts Maternity & Kids. It’s a large space with windows all around and dedicated crafting areas. “I can’t overstate how much I want this to become a community space,” said owner Andrew Rawls. “It’s big; it’s bright; it’s unique.” Rawls graduated from UCSB in 2012 and then lived in Washington, D.C., where he ran a business conducting luxury tours of the city. In 2019, he moved to U.S. Kwajalein Atoll in the Marshall Islands, and he served as a youth director for children of active-duty service members and contractors. “I knew I always wanted to come back to Santa Barbara, TONS OF TOYS: Owner Andrew Rawls has decked out the new space with though,” he said. sewing machines, Cricut cutters, 3D printers, and laser etchers.

The Revere Room
Resets Miramar’s Lobby Table
hen seasonality in a restaurant is more than a
buzzword, it makes writing about the dinner you enjoyed a month or so earlier a bit irrelevant. So I could wax on about our longfin yellowtail crudo with mountain berries (“I’ve never had raw fish with blueberries before,” blurted my accompanying amigo Señor M) or wax off about lobster-on-a-spit (its head crammed with shellfish butter that oozed over scrumptious cornbread cakes) — both of which are just hanging onto the menu right now, albeit morphing from what we enjoyed. But it’s better to go to the source of said delectables for an understanding of what The Revere Room is doing for information. “Really, sustainability is the new immunity,” says Chef Massimo Falsini, who reenvisioned the Rosewood Miramar’s lobby restaurant, formerly occupied by Malibu Farm, and applied his evolving philosophies to every restaurant of the Montecito resort during the brief downtime he had during the pandemic. “The key is very simple. The biggest lesson that Mother Nature taught us during the pandemic is that we really need to take care of the earth. When we don’t, the results are pretty catastrophic.” The Rome-raised chef, whose résumé spanned from his homeland to Abu Dhabi, Orlando, the Hualalai, and Napa before he was tapped to open the Miramar three years ago, was utterly effusive in our conversation a couple of days after my dinner on that tony patio in April. Though spewing the redundant rigmarole that all chefs appear mandated to say these days — regional sources, sustainable practices, seasonality, and so forth — he does so with an eloquent passion that’s hard to discount.
FRESH TAKES: Chef Massimo Falsini is making seasonal dishes, such as beluga lentils with peas and quinoa, the hallmark of all Miramar restaurants.
“My entire career is dependent upon sourcing locally, staying with the seasons, representing the locality of the terroir where I am operating,” explained Falsini, who moved to a plant-based diet a few months before the pandemic, but still tastes the meat as required. “We are so technologically advanced that we can do what we want,” he said of modern culture’s ability to have whatever we want whenever we want. “And then something like COVID happens and makes us question our choices in life.” For Falsini, who hits the Tuesday farmers’ market in Santa Barbara twice a month, Saturday’s market weekly, and the larger Santa Monica market monthly, that meant honing his already sharp game. For The Revere Room specifically, that called for delivering a sense of comfort that we all need now. “Some food is about the body,” he told Señor M and me as we polished off fried quail BY MATT KETTMANN breasts and albondigas in freshly made tortillas before slicing into lamb that was charred on its fatty cap. “Some is about the soul.” Cooking is clearly his calling, but this dude could have been a poet or a priest. “Mother Nature wakes up in spring, and she’s excited — everything is green and fresh and crisp and cold,” he told me of his ever-evolving menu development. “Then, in the summer, she matures, so everything becomes yellow and bright and red. In the fall, Mother Nature gives, so we take what she has given us. The colors become orange and maroon and ivory, so we cook with that. And in the winter, Mother Nature goes to sleep, so we give her rest. Whatever we preserved, we’re using. “If we live with Mother Nature,” he continued, “we will be healthier and live longer and live more peacefully.” It’s hard to argue with that, although his creations are unfortunately not affordable for many of us, as the sprawl-
CHEF MASSIMO FALSINI’S Post-Pandemic Sourcing Strategies
MAY 27, 2021
ing but not overstuffing dinner that we experienced would have set us back $300 or so had we not been comped (not including the big tip we did leave). That was in part due to our responsibility to explore the resort’s cocktail creations, from the classic and new-school old fashioneds to the spicyish margaritas and ginny Gable Fizzes, all of which were $24 a pop. Such are resort prices, pandemic and otherwise, and it only amplifies at the flagship restaurant Caruso’s, although the beachside setting of that dining room more easily justifies the splurge. And if you’re gonna go big, go dessert too, as the lemon pie and party-on-a-plate blood-orange-topped cheesecake are a mere $15 to throw on that tab. Of course, those might not even be on the menu when you go, which is how it should be. “Every week, the menu slightly changes,” said Falsini. “It’s like a progression through the seasons.” He’s not afraid to challenge his diners, either. “I could sell salmon anytime. If I put branzino on a menu, it will sell. If I fly fresh dover sole in from England, it will sell, like many of my colleagues are doing. But I’m not doing it.” For instance, if someone asks for salmon in January, when it’s not fresh from West Coast waters, he’s clear. “No, you can’t have it,” said Falsini, though he’d happily provide steelhead trout from NorCal. “You should not eat a fish that flies from all over the country or takes a 12-hour flight to come here. Doing that is wrong. It doesn’t make sense.” I like this guy, and he’s a firm bet when it’s time for a memorable meal. “I go to sleep, and I dream about food. I get up, and I think about food,” said Falsini, who’s fascinated by the transformation of ingredients to finished dishes. “Mother Nature does everything for us. She gives us incredible things we can play with. We are just blessed to have all these gifts. We just make sure to not screw it up.”

hanks in equal parts to the chart dominance of hip-hop and the universal human urge to shake that thing, funk, once a niche product, today stands tall amid music’s most popular and durable genres. While the first instrument that comes to mind when you think of funk might be an electric bass guitar, those who know how the funk is made might see something else—a Moog synthesizer. Although the road to funk can be traced back all the way to New Orleans, there’s one track—Parliament’s 1977 classic “Flash Light”—that marks that map’s busiest intersection, and “Flash Light” is driven by Bernie Worrell’s irresistible Minimoog bass line. Beginning in the early 1970s, Worrell conjured a bubbling, springy new musical vocabulary from a host IT’S BERNIE, BABY: Bootsy Collins, Bernie Worrell, and Nick and Anna Montoya of Volt Per Octaves of keyboard instruments, including multiple early analog synthesizers. forming live on original analog synthesizer his death, one of his Minimoogs was with Thanks to Volt per Octaves, the Santa equipment.

PORTRAIT OF A NATION In social justice movements, there’s always the question of how best to represent what’s happening. With one face, or many? With one voice, or a chorus? Portrait of a Nation, the recent video project by Mark Hirsch, pairs audio of chants from last summer’s Black Lives Matter protests with abstract animations that respond to those voices in tight synchronization. As ambient electronic tones shift slowly in the background, field recordings of chants like “defund the police” supply the soundtrack. Thanks to a computer program written by Hirsch, who is a PhD candidate in UCSB’s Media Arts Technology Program and teaches Computer Programming for Artists at the university, shining clouds of colored lines pulse and swirl at the center of an otherwise dark screen, their shapes and dimensions controlled by the sound waves of the protest audio. The result gives people a way to see the voices of protestors without revealing their faces. Take that, facial recognition software! This is why Regina Taylor, the Golden Globe– winning actress and playwright who is now leading a project at SMU’s Meadows School of Art called the black album, chose Portrait of a Nation to receive the Innovation Award at the project’s mixtape digital block party on May 11. The black album project was conceived as a way for artists to come together for “crucial conversations during this time of racial reckoning,” according to Taylor, and Hirsch’s piece fit perfectly within that framework. For his part, the artist has responded to the award with humility, saying “it’s not really me” that should get the credit, but rather the honor should be understood as “highlighting these people” whose voices can now be seen as well as heard. —CD
FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): “Open your mouth only if what you
are going to say is more beautiful than silence,” declares an Arab proverb. That’s a high standard to aspire to. Even at our very best, when we’re soaring with articulate vitality, it’s hard to be more beautiful than silence for more than, say, 50 percent of the time. But here’s a nice surprise: You could exceed that benchmark during the next three weeks. You’re primed to be extra expressive and interesting. When you speak, you could be more beautiful than silence as much as 80 percent of the time.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Here’s the definition of an emotional
support animal: “a companion animal that provides therapeutic benefit to a person with a mental or psychiatric disability.” I don’t mean to be flippant, but I think every one of us has at least one mental or psychiatric disability that would benefit from the company of an emotional support animal. If you were ever going to acquire such an ally, the coming weeks would be prime time to do so. I encourage you to also seek out other kinds of help and guidance and stimulation that you’d benefit from having. It’s the resource-gathering phase of your cycle. (PS: Cesar Chavez said: “You are never strong enough that you don’t need help.”)
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): A blogger named Valentine Cassius reports, “A tiny old woman came into the deli where I work and ordered a ‘wonderful turkey sandwich.’ When asked what she wanted on the sandwich other than turkey, she said ‘all of your most wonderful toppings.’ ” Here’s my response to that: The tiny old woman’s approach usually isn’t very effective. It’s almost always preferable to be very specific in knowing what you want and asking for it. But given the current astrological omens, I’ll make an exception for you in the next three weeks. I think you should be like the tiny old woman: Ask life, fate, people, spirits, and gods to bring you all of their most wonderful toppings.
CANCER (June 21-July 22): “I am tired of trying to hold things
together that cannot be held,” testifies Cancerian novelist Erin Morgenstern. “Tired of trying to control what cannot be controlled.” Here’s good news for her and all Cancerians. You have cosmic permission to surrender—to no longer try to hold things together that can’t be held or try to control what can’t be controlled. Maybe in a few weeks you will have gained so much relaxed new wisdom that you’ll be inspired to make fresh attempts at holding together and controlling. But that’s not for you to worry and wonder about right now. Your assignment is to nurture your psychological and spiritual health by letting go.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Philosopher Georges Bataille wrote,
“The lesson of Wuthering Heights, of Greek tragedy and, ultimately, of all religions, is that there is an instinctive tendency towards divine intoxication which the rational world of calculation cannot bear. This tendency is the opposite of Good. Good is based on common interest, which entails consideration of the future.” I’m going to dissent from Bataille’s view. I agree that we all have an instinctive longing for divine intoxication, but I believe that the rational world needs us to periodically fulfill our longing for divine intoxication. In fact, the rational world grows stale and begins to decay without these interludes. So the truth is that divine intoxication is crucial for the common good. I’m telling you this, Leo, because I think the coming weeks will be a favorable time for you to claim a healthy dose of divine intoxication.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo actor Ingrid Bergman (1915-
1982) won the most prestigious awards possible for her work in films, TV, and theater: Oscars, Emmys, and a Tony. She was intelligent, talented, and beautiful. Life was a challenge when she was growing up, though. She testified, “I was the shyest human ever invented, but I had a lion inside me that wouldn’t shut up.” If you have
WEEK OF MAY 27
a sleeping lion inside you, Virgo, I expect it to wake up soon. And if your inner lion is already wide awake and you have a decent relationship with it, I suspect it may soon begin to come into its fuller glory.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran author Antonio Tabucchi
described the frame of mind I recommend for you in the coming days. I hope you’ll be eager to embrace his far-reaching empathy. Like him, I trust you will expand your capacity to regard the whole world as your home. Here’s Tabucchi’s declaration: “Like a blazing comet, I’ve traversed infinite nights, interstellar spaces of the imagination, voluptuousness and fear. I’ve been a man, a woman, an old person, a little girl, I’ve been the crowds on the grand boulevards of the capital cities of the West, I’ve been the serene Buddha of the East. I’ve been the sun and the moon.”
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Author James Frey writes, “I used to think I was tough, but then I realized I wasn’t. I was fragile and I wore thick armor. And I hurt people so they couldn’t hurt me. And I thought that was what being tough was, but it isn’t.” I agree with Frey. The behavior he describes has nothing to do with being tough. So what does? That’s important for you to think about, because the coming weeks will be an excellent time to be tough in the best senses of the word. Here are my definitions: Being tough means never letting people disrespect you or abuse you, even as you cultivate empathy for how wounded everyone is. Being tough means loving yourself with such unconditional grace that you never act unkind out of a neurotic need to over-defend yourself. Being tough means being a compassionate truth-teller.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Fragile intensity or intense fragility?
Ferocious gentleness or gentle ferocity? Vulnerable strength or strong vulnerability? I suspect these will be some of the paradoxical themes with which you’ll be delicately wrestling in the coming days. Other pos-
sibilities: sensitive audacity or audacious sensitivity; fluidic fire or fiery fluidity; crazy wisdom or wise craziness; penetrating softness or soft penetration; shaky poise or poised shakiness. My advice is to regard rich complexities like these as blessings, not confusions or inconveniences.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Birds that live in cities have come
up with an ingenious adaptation. They use humans’ abandoned cigarette butts to build their nests. Somehow, they discovered that nicotine is an insecticide that dispels pests like fleas, lice, and mites. Given your current astrological aspects, I’m guessing you could make metaphorically comparable adjustments in your own life. Are there ways you could use scraps and discards to your benefit?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): A blogger named Raven testifies, “My
heart is a toddler throwing a tantrum in a store and my brain is the parent who continues to shop.” I’m pleased to inform you, Aquarius, that your heart will NOT act like that toddler in the coming weeks. In fact, I believe your heart will be like a sage elder with growing wisdom in the arts intimacy and tenderness. In my vision of your life, your heart will guide you better than maybe it ever has. Now here’s a message to your brain: Listen to your heart!
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): The Voyager 1 space probe, launched
by NASA in 1977, is now more than 14 billion miles from Earth. In contrast, the farthest humans have ever penetrated the ground is 7.62 miles. It’s the Kola Superdeep Borehole in northwest Russia. Metaphorically speaking, these facts provide an evocative metaphor for the following truth: Most humans feel more confident and expansive about exploring the outer world than their inner realms. But I hope that in the coming weeks you will buck that trend, as you break all previous records for curious and luxurious exploration into your deepest psychic depths.
