Doctors Without Walls-Santa Barbara Street Medicine

THANKS OUR 2020-2021

STUDENT COORDINATORS On behalf of the Board of Directors of Doctors Without Walls-Santa Barbara Street Medicine, I want to thank all our 2020-2021 Program Coordinators for all their hard work and dedication to serving the mission of DWW-SBSM. Our thanks are even more acute this year as we emerge from a pandemic that created a need to often change and adapt. You did well. Our Parks Coordinators became part of mobile street teams setting up clinics on the go. Our Women’s Free Homeless Clinic Coordinators sought out and found many of our female clients who were affected by the mobilization of our clinics. The Companion Care Coordinators who helped our homeless and underserved clients get vaccinations where they were located. The Volunteer Coordinator who makes sure all our clinicians and other volunteers were ready and available when needed. Our Data Coordinator, who helps collect and report our statistics, remained busy with special data projects to assist in future fundraising goals. Our Packs Coordinator who ensures our backpacks have all the medical and pharmaceutical supplies they need also shifted during the pandemic when asked to vaccinate our population. Without them DWW-SBSM could not function. To those of you moving on in your education this year, congratulations. To those returning to us for another year, thank you for your commitment. We wish you all the best. —Paul Jaconette, Board President

NEWS INTERN EXTRAORDINAIRE Meet Olivia Roberts, another of our news intern extraordinaires who joins us from UCSB’s new Journalism minor. Where’d you grow up? What drew you to UCSB and Santa Barbara? I grew up in Cape Cod, MA, specifically Provincetown, which is known as an LBGTQ+ mecca. It was an amazing place to grow up and exposed me to a lot of different people, but when I was applying to schools, I knew I wanted to go far away. So, I moved across the country and went to UCSB, which I fell in love with the minute I stepped on campus. Moving to California was a big decision, but I think the lifestyle is perfect for me. Santa Barbara is an incredibly special place, and I am very grateful to live here. What got you interested in journalism? Why do you enjoy it? My whole life, I have loved to write and tell stories. Even more than that, I loved hearing other people’s unique stories, especially when I spent time with my grandmother, who is a human rights activist. Through her, I met so many diverse individuals at a very young age, and I always wished others could hear the stories that I heard. When I came to college, I began to pursue journalism, which I believe is the ideal intersection between my two passions: writing and social justice. After studying in Copenhagen for half a year, I also discovered that I am interested in criminal justice reform and covering topics on this issue. I love the thrill of having fast deadlines and putting myself in positions that often challenge me in the field. There is never a lack of news or stories to be shared, and I believe that makes journalism exciting and imperative.

Caring About Healthcare

As President Franklin Delano Roosevelt worked on ways of expanding the health options for Americans, Sansum founder, Dr. Rexwald Brown, was one of only 11 physicians in the U.S. called to serve on the Medical Advisory Committee. Our CEO, Kurt Ransohoff, was asked to speak before Congress on the current state of healthcare in the U.S. Throughout our history, Sansum has not just cared about our patients, we care about healthcare.

Push Comes to Shove over Jail Pop Supes Want to Invest Savings from Fewer Inmates; Sheriff Cries They’re Defunding the Police DA N I EL DR EI FUSS F I L E PH OTO

by Nick Welsh ush came to protracted shove this Tuesday afternoon between Sheriff Bill Brown and the county supervisors over the number of inmates that should be locked up in the County Jail — now at a record historic low — and how the supervisors, who control the purse strings of county government, might split any savings accrued because of an anticipated drop in mandatory overtime costs by custodial officers. By the meeting’s end, the two sides seemed further apart than when they started. Sheriff Brown — backed up by testimony from four police chiefs — accused at least two supervisors of trying to “defund the police” with what he called ill-thought-out proposals: “This is a reckless act you’ve proposed … that could force some choices that are pretty ugly.” PRISON PROPONENT: “This is a reckless act you’ve proposed … that could force some choices that are pretty ugly,” Sheriff In turn, supervisors Gregg Hart and Bill Brown told the supervisors on Tuesday. Das Williams accused Brown of using “intentionally provocative” language that seriously distorted their ideas. This year, 580 people were incarcerated, Hart noted. Of been 12 homicides countywide. In all 12 the proposed Sheriff’s Office and jail budget is those, he said, 80 were soon to be transferred months last year, the number was 15. Hart $177 million, Williams noted. Last year, it was to state prison. By contrast, the most recent acknowledged these realities but offered $169.5 million. “When the budget goes up,” he numbers in this sheriff ’s report dated back one of his own.

After finishing the regular season on an eightgame winning streak, UCSB has earned an atlarge bid to the NCAA baseball tournament and will face Oklahoma State in the opening game of the Tucson Regional on 6/4. The 1 p.m. contest will be covered live on ESPN3. The winners of the 16 nationwide regionals will pair off in the Super Regionals to decide the eight participants in the 2021 College World Series at Omaha, Nebraska.

COMMUNITY A landscaping crew unearthed human skeletal remains on 5/25 while working at an estate on the 800 block of Riven Rock Road in Montecito, initiating what promises to be a long investigation into who they belonged to and from when they originated. If the bones prove to be Chumash in origin, they would be turned over to the Native American Council for safekeeping. A stop-work order is in effect on the property pending a conclusive determination. A Sheriff’s spokesperson stressed the property in question is not associated with the former British royals, who reside nearby. Goleta will be holding three district election workshops to begin the public process of drawing the city’s electoral boundaries. The city hired National Demographics to analyze Census data and draft maps, but the final maps depend on citizen input. The conversation on what distinguishes four city sectors starts with workshops on 6/7, 6/26, and 8/2 in English and Spanish. Send comments on or descriptions of a community of interest to dlopez@cityofgoleta.org, and register for the 6/7 workshop at tinyurl.com/9zdtmkdh, webinar ID 972 1928 6351. Full story at independent.com/Goleta-district-workshops.

COURTS & CRIME State Fish and Wildlife and the Sheriff’s Office destroyed 7,943 plants and more than 300 pounds of illegally processed cannabis flower in Santa Maria as they served a search warrant for environmental crimes. The grow was in the 1400 block of Tepusquet Road, an environmentally sensitive area where commercial cannabis operations are prohibited. Scientists documented several environmental violations, including substantially altering a streambed, putting harmful materials near a stream, and stockpiling rubbish in and around a nearby tributary. A formal complaint will be filed with the DA’s Office. A Veterans Administration nurse was allegedly assaulted in the Public Health Department parking lot on 5/26 by a man recently released from County Jail. The suspect, Nicholas Sutton, 31, reportedly swung a stick at the nurse, grabbed her coffee, threw it to the ground, attempted to grab her purse, and threw rocks at a passing bus. Sutton was arrested after a short pursuit and is being held on $100,000 bail for felony charges of assault with a deadly weapon, assault on elders, vandalism, and throwing substances at a vehicle.

Of the interest groups that lobbied the supervisors, none were as vigorous as the childcare advocates who argued the county’s economic recovery depended on a more robust childcare infrastructure. For every six toddlers, one speaker noted, there’s only one childcare space. Another noted four times as many women were put out of work during the pandemic nationwide than men, reflecting how economically crucial reliable childcare is. As the supervisors came to grips with all the different pots — restricted and discretionary being just two — from which this money will come, they realized members of the public — unschooled in the intricacies of public finance — could have trouble engaging meaningfully in the public process. To that end, they committed to spending $200,000 for a “navigation center” to help explain things. Supervisor Gregg Hart kept exclaiming what “an extraordinary moment” it was.

Controversial Housing Bills Move Through Legislature

T

he two new controversial housing bills that could dismantle Santa Barbara’s single-family homes and replace them with multi-unit housing are making their way through the Legislature. Senate Bills 9 and 10 both aim to create more housing, but opponents feel the one-size-fits-all approach doesn’t work well for the Santa Barbara community. Senate Bill 9 passed the Senate May 26 and is now in the Assembly. Senate Bill 10 is still in the Senate and will be heard on the Senate floor in the next couple of days, which would mean they would likely pass the full Senate and then move on to the Assembly.

Senate Bill 9 allows homeowners to put a duplex on single-family lots or split them without requiring a hearing or approval from the local government. Where a single-family home stood, eight units of housing can be built. Senate Bill 10 would allow cities to adopt an ordinance to zone any parcel of land, including single-family homes, for up to 10 units of housing if it is located in a “transit-rich or jobsrich area” or is an urban infill site. Both bills will not require environmental analysis. Like SB 9, SB 10 also only requires ministerial approval. —Delaney Smith

Supes Consider New Juvie Plan

T

he Board of Supervisors received an update May 18 from the county’s Probation Department regarding the Juvenile Justice Realignment Plan, which outlines best practices for youth offenders who will be transferred, or realigned, from the state’s Division of Juvenile Justice into custody at Santa Barbara County facilities. The plan anticipates the closure of the state Division of Juvenile Justice on July 1, per Senate Bill 823, which was passed in September by the California Legislature. The new policy “realigns” the responsibility for care, custody, and supervision of youth offenders —who are up to 25 years old, in some cases—to counties, which will be allocated funding to meet the youths’ needs. All services for committed youth will remain in place, with additional services and programs built in collaboration with community-based organizations. These new services, which will be provided as needed to youth at the Susan J. Gionfriddo Juvenile Justice Center in Santa Maria and Los Prietos Boys Camp in Santa Barbara, will be based on individual treatment plans and will include educational assistance for youth working toward earning their high school diplomas.

ment already offers services such as mentorship programs and moral reasoning therapy, aka Moral Reconation Therapy. “We understand the desire to bring youth back to their communities and have them serve secure commitments closer to home,” said Deputy Chief Probation Officer Holly Benton in a conversation after the Board of Supervisors meeting. “This gives counties opportunities to innovate and provide programs that lead to better outcomes, and we’re well situated to support youth and provide services to them.” The county is slated to receive $424,000 from the state for the initiative for the 20212022 fiscal year, and funding will increase in successive years as state facilities close and more youth are committed locally, said Benton. The hard closure date for state —Lily Hopwood facilities is July 1, 2023.

Generators Spewed Toxic Air Pollutants for Nearly One Year, Authorities Charge by Melinda Burns

ohn De Friel, owner and CEO of Central Coast Agriculture, illegally ran highly polluting diesel generators as a primary source of power at both of his outdoor cannabis operations on Santa Rosa Road, beginning as far back as February 2020, the county Air Pollution Control District has found. Fourteen diesel generators were powering lights, a greenhouse, and dozens of refrigerated shipping containers, many of them for months on end, at De Friel’s 30-acre Central Coast cannabis operation at 8701 Santa Rosa, district records show. One of the generators ran for 343 days. The property is less than half a mile upwind from a residential neighborhood. At 5645 Santa Rosa, where Central Coast is growing cannabis on 24 acres, two diesel generators were operating illegally, one of them for more than 301 days. “These are serious violations with over 65 tons of excess emissions,” Aeron Arlin Genet, the district’s air pollution control officer, told the district board at a May 20 hearing. Buellton Mayor Holly Sierra, a boardmember, said she was “really disappointed” to hear the news. “This is one of the reasons why we have so many concerns about cannabis production right outside our city limits,” she said. “We have no control over it, and now we’re not only getting the odors, but now we have diesel excess.” Central Coast operations shut down 11 diesel generators in January and early February this year, on the heels of a district inspection in mid-December — but employees immediately and illegally installed four more diesel generators in February, district records show. As of this March, district officials said, five diesel generators were still in operation at Central Coast. Under state law, it is illegal to use a diesel generator as a primary source of power without a permit from the district. The Santa Barbara County cannabis ordinance goes further: It bans the use of diesel generators as a primary source of power for cannabis operations in all unincorporated areas, except during power outages. De Friel had no state or district permits for his 16 diesel generators.

BLACK CARBON

Diesel exhaust is a human carcinogen. It contains soot, also known as black carbon; nitrogen oxide, a component of ozone; and numerous cancer-causing chemicals, including benzene and formaldehyde. Diesel particulate matter, a toxic air contaminant, is small enough to be inhaled into the lungs; occupational studies show a link between the exposure to exhaust and deaths from lung cancer.

GREENHOUSE GAS: Air quality authorities have cited Central Coast Agriculture for illegally using a total of 16 highly polluting diesel generators at two cannabis operations west of Buellton.

At the recent district board hearing, the vice-chair, county Supervisor Joan Hartmann, who represents the agricultural area around Buellton, recalled that on May 4 the Board of Supervisors had approved a conditional-use permit for De Friel’s operation at 8701 Santa Rosa “and praised it as a platinum standard.” Referring to the long list of diesel exhaust violations at the property, Hartmann asked, “Should we have known? I think we should have … I find that very concerning on the county side.” Genet told the district board that a “mutual settlement agreement” with Central Coast was under negotiation. The district’s website states that violators who accept district settlement offers will typically pay 10 percent to 25 percent of the maximum penalty allowed under state law.

‘EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES’

De Friel did not respond to a request for comment this week on the Central Coast violations, and his attorney, Matt Allen, declined to comment. But in a March 11 letter to the district, Lindsay Cokeley, the Central Coast compliance supervisor, said operations at 8701 Santa Rosa were expected to be fully connected to the electrical grid by August. Fresh-frozen cannabis is stored in 52 shipping containers there until it can be transported to Lompoc for the manufacture of cannabis oils. In her letter, Cokeley explained that Central Coast applied for PG&E permit for an “electrical upgrade” for the shipping containers in 2019. But the county, she said, would not allow the permit to include a connection to the containers until a zoning permit for the overall project had been approved. “Due to extenuating circumstances related to the issuances of permits with the County of Santa Barbara,” Cokeley wrote, “we are currently unable to remove the two generators located onsite without significant operational and financial impact to our business.” n

The Art and Science of a Prescribed Burn Firefighters, Ranchers Team Up to Train and Make Santa Barbara County Safer by Tyler Hayden • photos by Mike Eliason

I

t’s 8 a.m. on Wednesday, May 26, and 50 or so firefighters in navy-blue dress-downs are gathered in a small clearing on the Chamberlin Ranch just outside Los Olivos. They sip coffee and chat about their kids and the Dodgers as a pair of magpies hop and squawk along nearby fence posts. There’s a light fog in the air and barely a breeze. Afternoon temperatures won’t get above 75 degrees. Perfect conditions to start a few fires. The circle of men and women draws tighter as Anthony Stornetta, a Santa Barbara County Fire Department battalion chief, starts his briefing. The purpose of the prescribed burn scheduled for that day and the next is twofold, he explains. The first is to provide wildland training for the newest members of regional crews, including those from Montecito and Paso Robles, as well as more urban departments in Fresno and San Diego. Because if there’s anything California firefighters have learned in recent years, it’s that it doesn’t really matter where you’re stationed — when the next hellstorm hits, you go where you’re needed. But what crews who typically respond to structure fires might not know is that a brush fire can move 16 times faster on a slope compared to flat ground, Stornetta says. Or that grass just a couple of feet high can spit out six-foot flames that are capable of engulfing a field faster than any person can run. “That’s not survivable,” he says, and that’s why learning how and when to escape in the backcountry is critical. “This is real-life stuff.” The second objective, Stornetta goes on, is to use the series of carefully planned, intentionally set fires — 80 contiguous acres in all — to burn off deadened brush and downed tinder on the property. Removing the excess fuel will offer some protection to the Chamberlins and their neighbors in the event of an actual wildfire, as well as provide a bit of “range improvement,” meaning converting sage and chamise back to natural vegetation for better cattle grazing. Stornetta thanks Russell Chamberlin, who is standing to his side, for

partnering with the county on the operation. Chamberlin waves at the firefighters, and they nod back. Stornetta finishes his briefing by dividing the trainees into “firing teams” armed with drip torches and “holding forces” responsible for maintaining tight grids with hand tools and water-filled backpacks. Contingency plans are discussed for if the flames should jump the line. Helicopters are on standby. And a representative of the county’s Air Pollution Control District is at the scene to make sure Los Olivos isn’t unintentionally smoked out. As the crews throw on their gear and load into trucks, Stornetta runs through his checklist one last time. It’s hardly his first rodeo, but he still gets butterflies. Months of planning and preparation went into the burn, including the installation of weather stations to track wind patterns and fuel humidity. Stornetta himself was in the field until 8 p.m. the night before, watching the wind. “It’s all about minimizing risk,” he says. “If you’re not nervous, you’re overconfident.”

U

sing prescribed burns as buffers against extreme wildfires is nothing new for Santa Barbara and the state. Indigenous tribes have done it for centuries. But the strategy had flagged in recent years. Whereas Cal Fire used to clear out 65,000 acres annually in the 1980s, it slowed down to less than 10,000 by 2015. After a string of deadly, record-breaking conflagrations in

2017 and 2018, however — including the Thomas, Carr, and Camp fires — California’s legislature took major steps toward beefing up its prescribed burn regime. The state now strips nearly 125,000 acres a year, aided by Gov. Gavin Newsom’s $1 billion wildfire budget, with $65 million earmarked for increasing the rate of controlled burns. Stornetta pointed specifically to the Carr Fire as an incident that needn’t have become so disastrous if the buildup of fuel in the area had been better managed. New laws are helping, too. Senate Bill 1260, authored by Santa Barbara’s former state senator Hannah-Beth Jackson, requires Cal Fire to cooperate on prescribed burns with landowners. It also instructed the agency to create a program

BULL BY THE HORNS: California recently launched a “burn boss” certification program for private ranchers to conduct their own prescribed burns. The first class was conducted in Eureka in May, and Santa Barbara will host its own in the near future.

for the pre-certification of “burn bosses,” private ranchers who direct operations at prescribed fires on their properties or others’. Chamberlin cousin Mary Heyden watches as the line of trucks rumbles to its first location while a lookout vehicle takes position on the ridgeline above. Even though Heyden isn’t necessarily ready to become a burn boss herself, she likes the idea and hopes others in Santa Barbara County opt into the fledgling program. “I think it’s a win-win,” she says. Heyden is grateful for County Fire’s efforts to eradicate some of the tinderboxes on her property. Motioning to a nearby dry expanse, she snaps her fingers. “It can go up like that.” She also points to a semi-blackened hillside that had

been choked by thick chaparral until it was cleared away in a previous controlled burn. It’s now dotted with shoots of green that her cattle will one day eat. But what’s most important to Heyden and her family is the knowledge that Wednesday’s small fires will hedge against future disaster. “Seeing all those fires and knowing it could happen here — we just want our neighbors to be safe,” she says. Still, Heyden goes on, squinting beneath her wide-brimmed felt hat as a fireman drops flames onto the ground, “It’s just really weird to see someone intentionally set fire to your property.”

T

he day’s seven instructors are busy showing their teams how to wield the drip cans, where to stand, and why constant vigilance over even slight changes in wind direction is so important. They piecemeal the field in a grid to keep the flames from gathering a head of steam. Chainsaws lop off low-hanging oak branches so the fire can skirt underneath without taking the whole tree down. Spotters are stationed every few feet with their backs to the action, watching the landscape for any hint of stray

embers. Like the rattlesnakes they must constantly mind, they’re calm but ready to pounce. While County Fire conducts three to four prescribed burns a year, Stornetta says, it only offers the one annual certification. It can be a hard class to get, and it fills up quickly. The Chamberlin Ranch has proved the ideal training ground, he explains, because its existing roads make access easy and provide natural breaks. The undulating saddles of terrain provide realistic containment challenges. By the end of the two days, each firefighter will be graded on their “knowledge of the job,” “attitude,” “initiative,” “decisions under stress,” and other rating factors. “This is our bread and butter,” Stornetta says of fighting rural fires and the teachers who show others how to do it. n “So we’re good at it.”

TOOLS OF THE TRADE: Trainees use drip torches filled with a mixture of gasoline and diesel to burn sections of a dry and overgrown field.

It’s sad both city and county sold out local ownership and social equity in favor of non-locals with big investors from out of state and country. The latest example is Los Alamos, where a longtime local, super involved in and loved by the community re: cannabis and non-cannabis issues, lost out to a group from Los Angeles. The Sheriff ’s Department rep, part of an on-site inspection team, had issues and agenda. People are being punished for being in the industry years ago and helping cancer patients, vets, and homeless people, especially when the DEA tried to close all dispensaries. Funny how all those medical dispensaries were not-forprofit, so let’s now bypass the people that did all the legwork. Farmacy owner Graham Farrar won the numberone and possibly second-best locations. His greenhouse in Carpinteria got to double in size. Vertical integration is what we asked for, but the same people getting larger. He called five news outlets to make community donations. Grassroots, now Cal Green in Goleta, gave away 100 free sleeping bags to homeless people and 600 turkeys to Unity, as well as free meds to cancer patients, vets, and homeless people.

C

onfused about plastic recycling? Do yogurt containers go in the blue bin? After all, they have the “chasing arrows” recyclable symbol on them. Does bubble wrap? How about the plastic “clamshells” that contain berries? Answer: none of the above. The infuriating truth is that less than 9 percent of all plastic gets recycled. The rest goes to landfills or overseas, where it breaks into micro-plastics that end up in food, drinking water, air, and our bodies. These unseen particles are made of oil, fracked gas, and thousands of deadly chemicals. The average American ingests about a credit card’s worth of toxic plastic weekly. To address this problem, 12 bills (the Circular Economy Bill Package) have been introduced in the California Legislature.

SB 54 requires producers to take responsibility for waste by shifting from disposables to reusables where possible. SB 343 will prohibit the use of the word “recyclable” on products that are not, thereby reducing consumer confusion. AB 962 will allow returnable bottles to be reused through the state’s Beverage Container Recycling Program. Another bill in the package would prohibit exported mixed plastic waste to be called recycled even when it is landfilled, burned, dumped, or otherwise harmfully managed. This would ensure that recycling truly means recycled into new products. The deadline to pass bills out of their house of origin is June 4. Please contact your legislators today and tell them: “I live in your district and I am following this package of legislation closely.” Contact Assemblymember Steve Bennett, who introduced one of these bills, at (916) 319-2037 and Senator Monique Limón at (916) 651-4019.

Whither Bellosguardo?

Facebook readers replied to the latest on Huguette Clark’s former estate: Mike Aracic It should be opened to the homeless. In the Great Depression, the Clarks allowed the homeless on a part of their property, so there’s some precedent. If not that, then if it’s not being used by anyone or for anything, the house should be torn down and the land developed. It’s not of any particular architectural or historical value. Nothing of note ever happened there. It’s just a big house that its owner didn’t even apparently like that much. At least Lotusland has interesting plants. • Suzanne Cohen Seven years.

mos estudiantes en el Instituto Braille de Santa Bárbara hace 25 años. El Instituto era como un segundo hogar para nosotros. Greg llegó a tener una larga carrera en el Instituto como instructor de computación. Yo aprendí a leer y escribir en Braille y últimamente lo enseñé como voluntario por 10 años. Cuando perdemos la vista, tan solo servirse un vaso de agua representa un gran reto en nuestra vida. No podemos imaginar si vamos a volver a cruzar la calle solos, mucho menos usar un iPhone o buscar algo en el internet. Pero Greg estaba decidido a tener una vida independiente. Asistía a los talleres de computación y tenía una memoria fotográfica fuera de serie. Con esta gran cualidad que poseía, aún sin vista desarmaba y armaba las computadoras con tanta naturalidad como lo hace una persona con vista normal. Greg empezó como recepcionista en el Instituto y rápidamente fue contratado como instructor en tecnología de acceso para personas con poca o nada de visión. Trabajó en ese puesto durante casi dos décadas, hasta su muerte el 24 de enero de este año. Extraño a Greg demasiado, mucho, mucho. El y yo casi teníamos la misma edad. Yo era uno de sus alumnos, y él fue el mejor maestro que he tenido en toda mi vida. Greg fue para mí como un padre porque me enseño a vivir en esta vida de oscuridad. Me decía que podíamos valernos por nosotros mismos, para darle un poco más de sentido a nuestra vida. El me hizo sentir importante y me mostró que aún soy útil y puedo ayudar al prójimo como él lo hizo siempre, en todo momento. Greg pasó gran parte de su vida en Santa Bárbara. Cuando era joven, trabajó como encargado de mantenimiento en el negocio de su papá y luego se hizo mecánico de camiones diesel. Greg comenzó a perder la vista después de los 20 años, y pasaron varios años antes de que dejara por un lado su orgullo y se inscribiera en una clase del Instituto sobre las habilidades para una vida independiente. Y una vez que lo hiciera, su brillante carrera como maestro despegó. Greg solamente terminó la preparatoria, pero fue una verdadera eminencia en computadoras, y siempre daba un apoyo incondicional a los estudiantes que ponían en práctica lo que les transmitía. Nadie como Greg dominaba el bastón; de él, aprendí cómo distinguir si lo que produce un ruido es algo grande o pequeño, y de dónde proviene. Greg nos enseñó a explotar al máximo nuestro oído y no cruzar la calle cuando había demasiado ruido. Fue un genio en JAWS, un programa especial que nos lee lo que aparece en la pantalla de nuestras computadoras; y dominaba totalmente el manejo del “voice-over” que nos dice lo que hay en la pantalla del iPhone. Greg no hablaba español y yo no hablaba mucho inglés, pero nos entendíamos muy bien. Una de las primeras cosas que nosotros los latinos aprendimos sobre Greg era que cuando nos decía que practicáramos, nos iba a preguntar a cada uno en la próxima clase, “Entendió? Practicó? Sí o no?” El no quería escuchar excusas. Tiene mucha filosofía, eso de “sí o no.” Nuestra cultura no iba con eso, pero nos íbamos adaptando; y Greg siempre tenía una broma para levantar los espíritus en cualquier momento. Era muy especial, Greg. Es muy difícil perderlo ahora porque la comunidad acogedora del Instituto que alguna vez nos diera la mano ya no existe. Es como

si estuviera muriéndose. Mucho antes de la pandemia, bajo la dirección de la sede regional en Los Angeles, hubo un éxodo de maestros y administradores de la sucursal en Santa Bárbara—todos ellos veteranos, todos muy queridos—personas que fueron despedidas, cesadas o forzadas a salir, o que renunciaron a modo de protesta. Empezando alrededor de 2017, muchos de los programas locales fueron reducidos o eliminados, incluyendo excursiones en la comunidad, clases de inglés como segundo idioma, actividades al aire libre para la juventud, asesoría sobre la salud mental, y hasta la instrucción sobre cómo usar el bastón y tomar el transporte público. La administración nos quitó el café y el té en el comedor, diciendo que la prioridad era nuestra seguridad; y hasta limitó el uso de los cubiertos desechables. Los latinos pensamos que no era lógico que no aprendiéramos usar una cafetera, y tratamos de donar una, pero no lo aceptaron. Después, alguien más donó una cafetera y accedieron, pero tuvimos que pagar 50 centavos por una taza. El cambio más drástico fue que descontinuaron la transportación para recogernos de nuestros domicilios, un servicio en el cual dependían muchos de los estudiantes más avanzados de edad y descapacitados. Despúes de eso, habían días en que solo 10 estudiantes llegaban al Instituto. Greg estaba disgustado por el deterioro de los servicios y el impacto que esto tenía en nosotros, pero sabía que podia perder su trabajo si decía algo. Siguió dando clases a tiempo completo; yo tomaba tres clases con él en Zoom durante la pandemia para mantenerme al tanto de los últimos dispositivos de alta tecnología para las personas invidentes. Un día reciente, yo necesitaba la ayuda de Greg — otra vez—en mi iPhone. Greg habría encontrado la solución en menos de un minuto; yo pasé dos horas, pero al final, lo logré. Ahora no está Greg para decirme, “Haz esto, haz aquello.” Ahora, me toca a mí ayudar a los demás. Esta es una cadenita donde debemos transmitir nuestros conocimientos del uno al otro, así como nos enseñó nuestro gran maestro y amigo Greg Benavidez. Le sobreviven sus dos hijos, Steven Benavidez y Greg Benavidez Jr. de Santa Bárbara; y una hija, Cierra Benavidez de Santa María. n

They quickly hired by the institute as an access technology wouldn’t accept it; someone else donated one, and instructor, a position he held for nearly two decades, they relented, but we had to pay 50 cents a cup. The final straw was that they discontinued the up until his death on January 24 this year. I miss Greg so much, so very much. He and I were free daily van rides to and from our homes, a service nearly the same age. I was one of his students, and that many of the older, frailer students depended he was the best teacher I ever had. I thought of Greg on. After that, there were days when only 10 people as my father because he guided me and taught me would show up at Braille. how to go on living in this life of darkness. He used to tell me that we could stand on our own two feet so that our lives would have more meaning. He made me feel important and showed me that I could make a difference and that I could help others, as he did always. Greg spent most of his life in Santa Barbara. As a young adult, he worked for his father as a handyman and Greg Benavidez taught at the Braille Institute for many years. then became a diesel truck mechanic. Greg started going blind in his twenties, and it took him Greg was upset about the decline in services and several years to put aside his pride and sign up for an the impact it was having on us, but he knew he independent living skills class at Braille.

he position of poet laureate of Santa Barbara, initiated in 2005 and first held by the late Barry Spacks, offers an opportunity and a challenge. Granted, this city is an unlimited source of inspiration, but how do you improve on paradise? What can a poet give to the city that has everything? When Emma Trelles became the ninth person to hold the laureateship this spring, the city found an answer. The daughter of Cuban immigrants and a native of Miami, Trelles has been a journalist in South Florida and a professor at Santa Barbara City College. Her book Tropicalia, which received the Andrés Montoya Poetry Prize in 2010, overflows with the emotional intelligence and rhetorical clout of a lifelong poet. In describing how her writing reflects her background, Trelles uses the Cuban Spanish metaphorical verb “resolver,” which means “to make things work despite obstacles.” In a recent email, she said that her poems “document the bright green fly at the center of a succulent or the experience of walking home at dusk with a bag of street tacos.” Writing about the world she sees and her responses to it gives her a “way of understanding it or at least giving its chaos a recognizable shape.” “Writing poems is my way of trying to make things work, if only for a little while,” she explains. “My people are hopeful realists, and I think I am too.”

texts to bear in her work. In ways both overt and subtle, her voice is one that Santa Barbara needs to hear.

confidence of her work flows from the conviction that poetry can try to make sense of the world. As “Interstate Song” has it, “everything looks better in a poem” — but only if you put in the effort. You must “hoard the day” like a poet if you want to fly from the cannon’s mouth to “a palace where the cakes are laced with berries and you have arrived, face smooth and tongue without doubt.” This is the palace of poetry, home base of the creative imagination. For Trelles, the sometimes bleak contradictions of urban America can be redeemed through the focused attention that TROPES AND TROPICS: Her 2010 collection of poems, Tropicalia, won the Andres poems manifest. “Poetry Montoya Poetry Prize and was published by the University of Notre Dame Press. can be a kind of mirror in which we more authentiwrote a lot about it because of her longing to belong cally see ourselves and the particulars of our lives, in somewhere.” all of their beautiful and difficult forms,” she writes, In the short, counterfactual prose poem “What and her poem “Churchill’s Hideaway” bears this Would Have Happened If I Had Married You,” the observation out.

Dear Wellness Connection Council Graduating Seniors, What follows are two poems that represent the kind of work that Trelles has been doing since moving to Santa Barbara seven years ago. “Novena for Garden Street” and “Sonnet for Mark” have both been published as part of the anthology While You Wait: A Collection by Santa Barbara County Poets (whileyouwait.org), which was edited by Poet Laureate Emeritus Laure-Anne Bosselaar and is available both online and in print from Gunpowder Press.

We are so proud of you and all you have accomplished over the last year and beyond. Thank you for being such strong advocates and leaders for mental health in our community. Your passion and commitment to ending the stigma around mental health and making wellness a central part of the conversation is inspiring and we are so grateful for the time you have spent with us serving on the Wellness Connection Council. We are excited to see what the future has in store for each of you. Keep leading with kindness and speaking up for the causes that matter most! — From Alexis, Elise, Annmarie, and the Board of Directors of the Mental Wellness Center ANAMARIA BASAVE | DOS PUEBLOS

Novena for Garden Street

Community, self awareness, and strength. Before joining the Youth Wellness connection, during the height of the pandemic, I desired to attain all those things. I wanted to extend my role within my community and relationships. I was so fortunate enough to be a part of such an impactful program which has allowed me to achieve all of the above and further educate me about the issues surrounding mental health.

by Emma Trelles Barely dressed in the creamy mantilla of ornamental pear Trees, and cold rain, and agaves unfurling their tongues To the sun, spring inches up Garden Street, a hesitant bride Pure in her faith that better days await, they do, and we will All emulate the hummingbird’s rapture for hibiscus, agapanthus, The coral bell vines that stitch every chain link into a new tapestry. Crickets will gather in their unseen choirs, the clock will keep Its forward march, and from a small apartment near the park A fellow human will play guitar and sing something about The long train ride home, something about arrival.

Sonnet for Mark by Emma Trelles Now wakes a path between the oaks, now falls a spell of dove and frog, and stones dream of their mountain clans and each stick breaks to hear its name. Now light edges creek and water appears as a quick coin trick or silk pulled from a funnel of months, now behind us, at last, and shade and sky fill the mirror moving from next to next. Now do you see there is no stillness to this world? Even in sleep a seed is knitting its breach from the dark and the body hums on the march to becoming less and right now, words depart then arrive, like a brush returning to a well of color.

KATY PALMER | DOS PUEBLOS The Wellness Connection Council has been an amazing experience for me over the past year, it has given me a diverse support system of kind and welcoming individuals from all over Santa Barbara, many of which I didn’t know prior to joining. It also taught me the value of connection and compassion in supporting the mental health of yourself and others.

PAIGE KIEDING | SAN MARCOS Being on the Wellness Connection Council has been a huge support system for me throughout the past year as it’s given me the opportunity to connect with others during the pandemic and learn how to better manage my mental health. I’ve learned so much about how to better support those around me who are struggling with their mental health and improve my active listening skills.

ISABELLA MAGNESS | SAN MARCOS The Wellness Connection Council has taught me so much about how to support other people and, most importantly, how I can support myself as well. I now can look at mental health as something, not frightening, but necessary to maintain. The WCC has supported me in my college endeavors and will continue to support me for the rest of my life.

GEORGIA PENNINGTON | SAN MARCOS The Wellness Connection Council has taught me how to prioritize myself and my mental wellness. To me, mental health means being able to connect with yourself and your emotions and knowing what you need to do to feel better.

SASCHA ROSE-SMITH | SAN MARCOS Through the Wellness Connection Council I have learned how important it is to talk about mental illness and spread awareness in our community. Helping to educate my peers, community, and myself on how to be more accepting and helpful to others who are struggling has been very meaningful for me.

LILY SOLANO | SAN MARCOS The Wellness Connection Council has allowed me to learn about the different ways we can all actively destigmatize the conversation of mental health. The normalization of discussing mental health is essential if we want to effectively help the youth in our community.

EMMA GRABENSTETTER | SAN MARCOS The Wellness Connection Council has allowed me to better understand just how mental health affects all of us, and gain tools to help destigmatize mental illness in our community. It’s taught me lessons I will keep with me forever, and cherish all of my experiences in creating a safer and more accepting community for us all.

drawn from her own life and the Martin Scorsese film Taxi Driver. Throwing typical restaurant review words like “retro” into the mix crosses mundane commercial exaltation with seedy despair. No voyeur, the poet nevertheless refuses to look away from what cities and their boosters so frequently ask us to ignore. This noirish tendency reaches a crescendo with the spooky tale “For the Woman on the Boulevard.” It’s a litany of hard-luck questions asked of someone whose car has broken down that includes the rather incredible line, “Did you just once over the tow man?” Yet there’s another strain operating in Trelles’s oeuvre, equally strong and perhaps more authoritative in its drive, that spreads through the second half of Tropicalia and seems to have taken root in the poems that she has written since moving to Santa Barbara: potent, passionate, romantic love. After the sordid scene of the woman on the boulevard and her tow-truck hookup, the very next poem, simply titled “Love,” comes as a stark contrast. I won’t spoil its ecstatic unity by the violence of quotation. Let it suffice to say that the addressee has inspired something immortal. n See emmatrelles.com.

TALIA GERSTENFELD | DOS PUEBLOS My experience on the council has had an extremely positive impact on my life. I have been able to acknowledge when I feel that my mental health may be going downhill. The council has helped me greatly in finding ways I can improve my mental health before it becomes too overwhelming. The council has also taught me strategies to approach friends who are struggling with their mental health.

ZOE BOSCH | SAN MARCOS The council has been an overwhelmingly positive experience and helped me feel like a part of the solution when it comes to mental health. The goal is to help destigmatize mental health disorders, and give students a space to speak freely about how they are feeling, and how to best deal with the emotions they are experiencing.

REANNA BUSO | SAN MARCOS The Wellness Connection Council has given me a safe space to comfortably explore and talk about my mental health journey. It is freeing communicating to others with shared experiences with the common goal in breaking down stigmas that have previously stopped these important conversations. I look forward to passing along the skills I have learned to further help someone in need while simultaneously working to better myself.

THE FOOL’S JOURNEY

Are you

T I G N I K WOR in 2021? JEAN ZIESENHENNE

CONTRIBUTE TO OUR SPECIAL ISSUE ON THE POST-PANDEMIC JOB WORLD

DEEPER MEANING: The Fool, Clark explains, reflects the fleeting liberation of a new beginning and the accompanying joy and ease of not knowing what is to come.

by Celina Garcia

W

hen artist Caroline Clarke first began designing her own deck of tarot cards, she initially thought several years would pass before she held the finished product in her hands. Astonishingly, Clarke completed all 78 cards in less than six months. With her illustrations taking after the traditional Smith-Waite deck, Tarot by Caro, now in its second printing, is enchanting, otherworldly, and adorned with the most regal color palette.

Artist Caroline Clarke Creates Tarot by Caro Having studied art history and dance at UC Santa Cruz, Clarke draws inspiration from medieval art, children’s book illustrations, and surrealist visionaries such as the late British-Mexican painter Leonora Carrington. Nevertheless, Clarke’s style is distinctive in its own right. What is most striking about her artwork is that your eyes, rather than being drawn to a singular focal point, dance between her use of negative space and over every contour, wiggle, and intricacy in her clashing patterns, whether celestial or floral. With something new to notice in every glance, her attention to detail naturally lends itself well to tarot, which mystics and newbies from all corners of the world turn to in an effort to decode the woes and wonders of life. Clarke originally intended to create a design for each of the 22 cards in the Major Arcana, starting with the High Priestess. For those unfamiliar with tarot, each deck is traditionally divided into two categories: the Major and Minor Arcana. Cards in the Major — such as Death, Temperance, the Lovers, the Fool, or the Tower — signify critical events or changes in one’s life, while the Minor cards highlight smaller subtleties and often day-to-day insights, and they coincide with the four natural elements. Once Clarke got the ball rolling on the first category, she harnessed the willpower to see the project all the way through. Clarke gives partial credit to the pandemic in providing her the time and circumstance to accomplish “what otherwise would have continued to sit on the back burner.” From not being able to go out at night,

to raising a family with her husband, Andrew—who is also an artist and who works under the pseudonym Digital Sunsets—the couple’s similar passions, aims, and skill sets allowed them to balance caring for their two young children and honing their respective crafts. Of the 78 cards in a traditional tarot deck, Clarke is quick to answer the one she currently identifies with most. “The card of my life right now is the Fool,” she laughs. “I think a lot of people look at the card and think, ‘Oh, the Fool, the dumbass.’ ” But there is an optimistic significance behind it, she said, despite what the traditional imagery may suggest. The card features a jester-like individual who is being held back by a dog from inadvertently stepping off a cliff. Represented by the number zero, the Fool reflects the fleeting liberation of a new beginning and the accompanying joy and ease of not knowing what is to come. “We’re all fools,” Clark says. “You have to be a fool going into things; otherwise, you’re never going to get them done. It’s sort of the perfect metaphor for parenthood as well — you just sort of jump into it. No one can really know how hard or how wonderful it is until you jump off that cliff.” While creating art digitally has allowed for a larger distribution of her work, and with this ambitious endeavor now out of the way, Clarke is looking forward to going back to the basics and picking up a pen and paper for her next project. “I just love the feeling when you give someone a piece of artwork that you made,” she says. “There’s nothing quite like it.” Even with the recent success under her belt, Clarke is still new to learning the teachings tarot has to offer. A small but grand discovery she made was realizing that while not everyone has the living room space or resources to be a fancy-shmancy art collector, something as personal as a tarot deck can be a wondrous way of incorporating art into one’s daily life. “And if I can complete a project like this in less than six months,” Clarke says, with a cheerful gleam in her eye, “what’s to stop me from doing anything else?” To purchase your own dreamy deck of tarot cards and view Clarke’s mesmerizing work, visit quierocaro .com, and for a daily tarot card pull, follow her on Instagram (@quiero_caro). n

But first-year head coach Brian “Ziggy” Ziegenhagen orchestrated a miraculous turnaround and took IN IT TO WIN IT: “Even COVID couldn’t stop us,” said lead scorer Sofia Orozco. the Royals from worst to first in the Channel League in a transformation eral tough matches, including a quarterfinal match against Pasadena-Marshall that went to penalty straight out of a Hollywood movie. “It’s fun to coach talented girls who have the desire kicks, and a 1-0 double overtime victory over South and love to play at the next level,” Ziegenhagen said Pasadena. In the championship game against Paraclete, the Friday immediately after San Marcos’s 1-0 victory over Paraclete in the CIF Championship game. “I’m Royals were once again locked in a tight contest until Rebecca Rodriguez and Caroline Mikkelson really proud of them.” combined to break the scoreless tie off a corner kick. “We’ve had a losing season the past two years.

We are super close, and we have an awesome coach that The vast majority of the players who contributed knows how to motivate us.” On defense, San Marcos compiled 11 shutouts to the 16-0 season and starred in the Championship game were on the team when they only won one through 16 games and has consistently succeeded game.

San Marcos Girls’ Soccer Goes from Worst to First

Beach Town Showdown

For every high school team in California, the pandemic presented significant obstacles that limited player development and team building in ways that are only just beginning to be understood. But what is clear is that the teams who found success in spite of the chaos had strong leaders who made sacrifices with no guarantee of even having a season. “We just kept pushing,” Orozco said. “Even before we got our team together, people were going on runs.” That desire to win showed up throughout San Marcos’s run in the CIF playoffs, which included sev-

The Santa Barbara High boys’ volleyball team will look to punctuate an unbeaten season with a CIF-SS Southern Section Division 2 Championship. The Dons (14-0) will host Huntington Beach in a matchup of two of the most revered boys’ volleyball programs in Southern California history on Saturday, June 5, at 5 p.m. Twenty-nine years ago, Santa Barbara head coach Chad Arneson was a freshman on the 1992 team that defeated Huntington Beach in a CIF final, and he is thrilled that the two programs have come full circle. “I think it’s pretty special that we have two beach towns that get to play against each other for a little bragging rights,” Arneson said. “We’re playing with a lot of confidence. The semifinals against Beckman was definitely one of our best performances, so I’m hoping we can duplicate that.” n

the lineup is a powerhouse package, appealing to a wide range of palates and presented in mysterious, eye-grabbing packaging. (Literally — an eyeball is in the middle of a hand on the label.) N “Our estate program is KETTMAN BY MATT a window into the vintage, and it’s always been about the vineyard over winemaking,” explained Nicholas Miller of the family’s flagship Bien Nacido Estate brand, which produces lower-alcohol, expertly transparent wines. “What about looking at it from someone else’s perspective?” he said of the family’s motivation. “This is exactly what we want, a totally fresh start.” As any right-minded winemaker would, Tensley was immediately drawn to Bien Nacido’s most interesting blocks. “The old stuff was the first thing I gravitated to — that and the steep stuff,” he explained. “As a winemaker, this is the best-case scenario possible.” The wines were bottled before even a year in barrel, which is a shift from the Miller’s longer-aging estate program, as Tensley intends to preserve the freshness. The project will continue to evolve, perhaps scaling down from two of each variety to one, but it may also begin to include the Millers’ other vineyards: Solomon Hills, alongside 101 near Orcutt; and French Camp, which is in the middle of nowhere southeast of Paso Robles. (I recently visited. It’s deep.) While the chardonnay exhibits the vineyard’s distinct minerality and the pinot captures the region’s spice rack well, it really is the syrah that shines, delivering Tensley’s trademark heft while retaining those stunning rotundone-related cracked-black-pepper qualities. “Going forward, the biggest program will probably be syrah,” said Tensley, who fermented about 6 percent of the white grape roussanne into one of the batches, whereas most American syrah-makers might employ viognier in that role. “Everyone is talking about CôteRôtie,” said Tensely of that region’s classic syrah-viognier pairing. “But in Hermitage, viognier is illegal.” So when they co-ferment in Hermitage, he explained, it’s either marsanne or roussanne. Tensley is convinced that Bien Nacido may be one of the best syrah sites in the country and believes his wines will compete globally. “You can put this up against any wine in the world,” he said, “and for $45, it will stand up for sure.” n See optikwines.com.

JOEY TENSLEY’S TAKE ON BIEN NACIDO VINEYARD BY MATT KETTMANN

First planted by brothers Steve and Bob Miller nearly 50 years ago, the Santa Maria Valley property put coolclimate California syrah on the global map by grafting some for Qupé founder Bob Lindquist in 1987. That rippled into coastally influenced plantings of syrah across the state, delivering the umami-laden, pepper-powered character of what I think is the most interesting style of wine in the galaxy, reflecting in uncanny ways the gamy hallmarks of the variety’s ancestral home in the northern Rhône Valley of France. Tensley, meanwhile, was building his own legacy, turning both cool and warmer syrah sites into unctuously expressive wines, bagging big magazine scores, and becoming the darling of wine lovers from Chelsea to Châteauneuf-du-Pape. So when the Millers gave him a call in August 2019 about possibly collaborating on a wine brand — one that also included chardonnay and pinot noir, Bien Nacido’s best-known grapes — the Bakersfield-raised, Los Olivos–residing winemaker was intrigued. “A lot of places talk the talk, but these guys are walking the walk,” said Tensley of what he realized during his first tour of the vineyard, a leader in innovative and sustainably minded farming that’s overseen by Chris

Hammell, for whom Tensley has massive respect. “I was instantly hooked.” That was exactly what the Millers wanted. After decades of operating primarily as vineyard owners who sold fruit rather than make wine, the family decided to focus on vertical integration over the past decade, launching a number of brands, from their high-end Bien Nacido Estate portfolio to more widely available and affordable labels such as Smashberry, J. Wilkes, Ballard Lane, and Barrel Burner. To do so, they’ve also mostly taken over the former Central Coast Wine Services in Santa Maria, turning the once-critical incubator for Santa Barbara winemaking upstarts into their own large winery. So a deal was hatched, with the Miller Family Wine Company owning the brand but Tensley having full reign over the wines, which he makes at his facility on Martian Ranch near Los Alamos. In early May, the first vintage of Optik Wines was released, and I was the first person from outside of the partnership to taste the wines, which I did with Tensley and Nicholas Miller at the Bien Nacido tasting room in Los Olivos. There are two chards, two pinots, and two syrahs, all emblematic of both the zesty qualities of the vineyard and the opulence of FAMILY TIES: From left, Nicholas, Steve, and Marshall Miller oversee Bien Nacido, Solomon Hills, and French Tensley’s style.

fter teaching music to students in Korea, Tur-

key, and Vietnam for more than a dozen years, Ron Fairbanks developed an affinity for the different breakfasts of the world and wanted to share that array with others. So in March, with his wife, Jade Fairbanks, he opened 4 Eggs & Pizza in the former Scarlett Begonia location in Victoria Court, serving an eclectic and ever-evolving menu of egg dishes, salads, noodles, burgers, pizzas, and more. “Why can’t we go somewhere and eat pho at eight in the morning?” explained Ron, who grew up in Goleta, graduated from Dos Pueblos High in 1981, and then studied music at the University of Utah. “I wanted to bring something different to Santa Barbarans.” Pho is especially meaningful, as Ron met Jade in Vietnam, where she was raised and working as an accountant. But that job was causing her health issues due to the high stress, so the couple entered the restaurant business about three years ago by opening a franchise of Pier 49 Pizza in Utah. They eventually broke away from the corporate menu by serving pho, which was Ron’s recipe, not something passed down through Jade’s family. “I always had to cook for myself,” said Ron, who was single from age 18 to 52. “I’m picky, and I’ve learned a lot. She’s like my taster — I make it and she tastes. I still can’t make her eggs perfectly, but I’m working on it.” The couple, who have 4-year-old twins, knew they wanted to serve an even wider range of foods, but the franchise agreement wouldn’t allow that. So they found a new space in downtown Santa Barbara. It became a homecoming for Ron, who’s been running into old friends ever since. “It’s good to be back in Santa Barbara,” said Ron, whose father passed away in 1991. “My dad’s been calling me back for a while.” The restaurant’s name is a nod to “four continents,” which Ron lists as Asia, Africa, Europe, and, with creative license, the Americas.

bounces from Asian (pho, banh mi, rice plates) to Mexican (carnitas taco) to English (back bacon and black pudding with eggs and beans) to French (cocottes, omelets), Tunisian shakshuka (eggs in tomato sauce) to a Turkish breakfast plate with jams, spicy sausage, salty cheese, and a small salad. Then there’s a wide range of pizza, of course, and a handful of hamburgers to round out the menu. The Fairbanks don’t plan to stop there, wanting to add Turkish and Korean street foods to serve at night when the live music fans file out of SOhO upstairs, plus a range of sausages, perhaps some chicken soup, perhaps pozole. “What doesn’t sell? Say goodbye,” said Ron of his menu-testing regime, later adding with a hearty laugh, “We don’t sell eggs on pizza — that’s what we don’t do!” The restaurant’s casual vibe is matched by a colorful decor, which is sparse but developing. When I visited in late April, it reminded me of those cafés you find in foreign countries that serve various international foods to appeal to both tourists and locals, with large pictures of every menu item posted on the wall. They’re keeping prices modest, with eight-inch pizzas starting at $8, small pho at $9, burgers around $8, and breakfasts running from about $10 to $14 for the full English spread to $22 for duck hash and eggs, a dish Ron proudly invented. To Jade, this formula should also work for families or even friends whose tastes aren’t similar. “It’s hard for families to find one place to go!” she said. “So we focused on doing everything, but everything good.” Ron plans to start playing his keyboard and singing in 4 Eggs & Pizza when live music comes back too, combining his professional pursuits under one roof. But offering breakfast all day remains a top priority. Said Ron, “Some people really want breakfast at two in the afternoon.”

COSTA KITCHEN & BAR

East Cabrillo Boulevard, launched with a soft opening on June 2. Regular hours start next week, Wednesday-Sunday, 5-10 p.m., and the bar will be open until about 11 p.m. Costa offers a mix of coastal Italian cuisine and modern Southern Californian fare, created by Executive Chef Nathan Lingle, in an ocean-view setting. “Our goal is to have a restaurant space here that’s showcasing the local craftsmen and the ingredients of this area, but more so a restaurant for the community and for the people who live here year-round,” says Lingle. “It’s a great amenity for our hotel guests, but first and foremost, we want the restaurant to be known in the community for the community.” The restaurant was actually ready to go just as the pandemic struck last year and has been in a holding pattern ever since because it is primarily an indoor eatery. The other dining facility at Hotel Mar Monte, called Café Lido Lido—Italian — Italian for “shore” —lets — lets you enjoy Mediterranean-style small plates and cocktails near the Mar Monte Hotel pool deck. It opened last November. Costa Kitchen’s menu includes appetizers ($6$18), salads ($10-$15), meat and fish entrees ($26$42), pasta ($21-$27), and dessert ($9). See costasb.com. THE DAISY REOPENS: The Daisy Restaurant, which

opened at 1221 State Street in November 2019, then promptly closed a few months later at the onset of the pandemic, is now open again for lunch and dinner. The menu includes sandwiches (like the lemon chickpea for $13 or brisket banh mi for $16), all-day plates (mezze, $16; cheeseburger, $16; etc.), and evening plates (smoked prawns, $19; lamb and beef kofta meatballs, $21; etc.). They’re open Wed.-Sun., 11 a.m-2 p.m., 5 p.m.-close. See thedaisyrestaurant.com. COFFEE FOR CALLE REAL? Reader Deebo says that a new business is coming soon to 5915 Calle Real, Ste. A, in the former home of Pizza Hut across the parking lot from Zodo’s Bowling. The window painting has the neighborhood curious. From

what I can tell, the artwork suggests the next tenant will be a coffee shop. Construction appears to have just recently started, so opening is likely months away. TRUCK ONLY FOR EL PASTORCITO? Reader Annie let

me know that Taqueria El Pastorcito appears to have closed their restaurant in the small shopping center at State-Hollister-Modoc but reported that their food truck remains active, usually in the parking lot of Tri-County Produce. Their brickand-mortar restaurant at 4427 Hollister Avenue opened in February 2016.

O

DOC CELEBRATES OAKLAND’S MLK ORATORICAL FEST

n Thursday, June 3, the UCSB Arts & Lectures Race to Justice series comes to the West Wind Drive-In for a screening of We Are the Dream: The Kids of the Oakland MLK Oratorical Fest. This inspiring documentary film directed by Amy Schatz and executive produced by Mahershala Ali was released in 2020 and features young students from Oakland who are empowered through the MLK Oratorical Festival, a “public speaking competition featuring poetry and speeches inspired by the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.” The festival is a tradition that the community of Oakland has looked forward to annually for more than four decades, and it involves students from grades pre-K through 12. After competing for first place at their individual schools, winning students go on to perform poetry, speeches, and monologues in the citywide championships. The “Oratorical,” as it is known, empowers kids and shows them what they can accomplish through hard work and practice. The documentary follows several students from their earliest attempts to the grand finale on the main stage. They are all memorable, and none more so than young Gregory Payton, who is seen performing the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s final speech, which is sometimes known as “I’ve Been to the Mountaintop.” Delivered the day before he was assassinated and filled with examples of King’s greatest oratory, King’s speech gives this young man a powerful platform for his own skills as a communicator. Payton is the son and grandson of preachers, and he clearly loves public speaking. In an interview about the process of memorizing the speech, Payton shows how much he has learned by offering

an insightful account of King’s philosophy of nonviolence. Payton and the other speakers rehearse multiple times a day for weeks in order to memorize their speeches, and all of them come across as impressively passionate about that work. Teachers, parents, and coaches also play important roles in the contest and in the film. We hear Winston Williams, an educator from Markham School, saying that the performer’s posture is just as important as the words. How they hold and carry themselves while speaking has a powerful impact on the judges and the audience. Even though it’s a competition, the Oratorical is more about community support and appreciation than rivalries or keeping score. Many of the contestants are children of color, immigrants, women, or from other marginalized groups; it’s thrilling to see the way they all stand and give powerful speeches. Maybe it is the energy of Oakland within them, a city that has been known for pushing the boundaries of social justice work. This festival is just one example of how that community honors diversity and activism. The fact that the Oratorical focuses on the words of Martin Luther King means that the contestants have lots of great material to choose from and they learn about Black history at the same time. This is another way that the festival is not only for the kids. When their friends, families, and teachers gather to watch them perform, many become tearful at seeing young children connect so brilliantly with historical events and figures. The screening at the West Wind on Thursday, June 3, is free and open to the public on a first-come, first-served basis, with the film scheduled to begin at 8:30 p.m. For more information, visit artsandlectures. ucsb.edu. —Kate Spaulding

ost kids who grew up on fantasy novels have asked themselves: What happened to Dorothy when she returned home from Oz, to Alice after she left Wonderland, or to Susan after she was barred from Narnia? Seanan McGuire explores this question in Every Heart a Doorway, the first installment in a series that follows the lives of teenagers who return from magical worlds. As students at Eleanor West’s Home for Wayward Children, they cope with life in the real world even as they long to return to their versions of fairyland. Whether that’s a landscape of rainbow roads or a stark place of shadows and silence, what all those other worlds have in common is that for each child, they were the place they felt most at home, where they were free to be themselves. Only now they’re in a boarding school for misfits. The concept is fun and engaging, and the execution is excellent, earning McGuire a sci-fi fantasy award trifecta: top honors from Locus, Nebula, and Hugo. Like a rabbit hole or a magical wardrobe, Every Heart a Doorway is a great portal to a fantasy land, especially for readers who might not think this particular genre is for them, thus achieving one of our goals when selecting books for the Indy Book Club! McGuire playfully subverts the tropes of portal fantasies, evoking the magic of childhood but tempering it with tinges of horror and darker themes. There’s a sophistication to the development of the characters; the book’s compact story manages to fully flesh out many of the school’s residents, all while building the complex worlds where they grew up. Blending a murder mystery with a coming-of-age story while addressing queer identity and mental illness and lovingly satirizing boarding school novels might seem like more than a fantasy under 200 pages can accomplish, but McGuire pulls it off, leaving readers with much to discuss. —Molly Wetta, Santa Barbara Public Library

’S ERICKSON NEIL PANDEMIC AWAKENING “

T

he pandemic has changed my life in a truly amazing way,” explains musician Neil Erickson, who started singing during his childhood, performed with his high school choir at Carnegie Hall, and then picked up a guitar a decade ago. “While it has caused such unfortunate turmoil to many across the country, I have been blessed with the opportunity to pursue music. If it wasn’t for this pandemic, I wouldn’t be making music right now.” Prior to the pandemic, Erickson was studying journalism at SBCC and editing The Channels. The Isla Vista resident started playing live shows around that college community just before COVID showed up. “I had never had more joy and bliss in my life,” he said of seeing so many people dance and smile to his sound. Suddenly, with the shutdown, he was distraught. “I had just gotten my first taste of this, and now it was completely gone,” said Erickson. “I took that energy and passion that I had and eventually learned to channel it into recording music, something I had never done before.” He’s since spun out four songs, “Missing U,” “The Way You Love Me,” “B Urself,” and “Bittersweet” (with Sam Joseph, out May 28), and is releasing a fifth called “Opposite Directions” with Nick Vaughan in June, which will also come with a video that was shot in April. Erickson is also working “nonstop” with producer Israel Cohen at Sugar Rush Studios in Old Town Goleta, and he hopes to start playing live again soon. “I understood my potential, and now I’m ready to grab it,” he said of his musical awakening. “If it wasn’t for the pandemic, I would still be pursuing journalism at City College and transferring to a four-year in the fall. The pandemic changed the course of my life forever in, I believe, the best way possible.” Check out his Instagram (@neilderickson), his SoundCloud page (soundcloud.com/neil-erickson-117923061), and his Linktree page (linktr.ee/neilerickson). —Matt Kettmann

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny CANCER

ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): “There is ecstasy in paying attention,”

writes Aries author Anne Lamott. That’s always true for everyone, but it’s extra true for you Aries people. And it will be extra ultra-especially true for you during the next 20 days. I hope you will dedicate yourself to celebrating and upgrading your perceptual abilities. I hope you will resolve to see and register everything just as it is in the present moment, fresh and unprecedented, not as it was in the past or will be in the future. For best results, banish all preconceptions that might interfere with your ability to notice what’s raw and real. If you practice these high arts with exhilarating diligence, you will be rewarded with influxes of ecstasy.

TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): Your guiding wisdom comes from Taurus author Annie Dillard. She writes, “I think it would be well, and proper, and obedient, and pure, to grasp your one necessity and not let it go, to dangle from it limp wherever it takes you.” I suspect that Dillard’s approach will enable you to maintain a righteous rhythm and make all the right moves during the coming weeks. If you agree with me, your crucial first step will be to identify the nature of your “one necessity.” Not two necessities. Just the single most important.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): “All I want to be is normally insane,”

said actor Marlon Brando. Yikes! I have a different perspective. I would never want to be normally insane because that state often tends to be sullen and desperate and miserable. My preferred goal is to be quite abnormally insane: exuberantly, robustly, creatively free of the toxic adjustments that our society tells us are necessary. I want to be cheerfully insane in the sense of not being tyrannized by conventional wisdom. I want to be proactively insane in the sense of obeying my soul’s impulses rather than conforming to people’s expectations. I bring this to your attention, Gemini, because I believe the coming weeks will be a fruitful time for you to be my kind of insane.

(June 21-July 22): “It’s one thing to make a mistake; it’s

WEEK OF JUNE 3

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): According to physicists, it’s impos-

another to become wedded to it,” advised author Irena Karafilly. Let’s make that one of your key truths in the coming weeks. Now is a good time to offer yourself forgiveness and to move on from any wrong turns you’ve made. Here’s a second key truth, courtesy of composer Igor Stravinsky: “I have learned throughout my life as a composer chiefly through my mistakes and pursuits of false assumptions, not by my exposure to founts of wisdom and knowledge.” Third key truth, from Sufi teacher Pir Vilayat Inayat Khan: “Don’t be concerned about being disloyal to your pain by being joyous.”

sible for a human being to suck water up through a straw that’s more than 34 feet long. So please don’t even try to do that, either now or ever. If, however, you have a good reason to attempt to suck water up a 33-foot straw, now would be an excellent time to do so. Your physical strength should be at a peak, as is your capacity for succeeding at amazing, Herculean tasks. How else might you direct your splendid abilities? What other ambitious feats could you pull off?

acter flaws that bother me. But he also had a quality I admire: generosity in helping his friends and colleagues. Among the writers whose work he championed and promoted with gusto were 20th-century literary icons James Joyce, T. S. Eliot, Marianne Moore, Hilda Doolittle, William Butler Yeats, Ernest Hemingway, William Carlos Williams, and Robert Frost. Pound edited their work, arranged to get them published in periodicals and anthologies, connected them with patrons and editors, and even gave them money and clothes. In accordance with astrological omens, I encourage you to be like Ezra Pound in the coming weeks. Make an extra effort to support and boost your allies. Assist them in doing what they do well. To do so will be in your own best interest!

(July 23-Aug. 22): According to my analysis of the astro-

logical omens, the number of perfect moments you will experience during the next two weeks could break all your previous records. And what do I mean by “perfect moments”? (1) Times when life brings you interesting events or feelings or thoughts that are novel and unique. (2) Pivotal points when you sense yourself undergoing a fundamental shift in attitude or a new way of understanding the world. (3) Leaping out of your own mind and into the mind of an animal or other person so as to have a pure vision of what their experience is like. (4) An absolute appreciation for yourself just the way you are right now.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “There is strong shadow where there

is much light,” wrote Virgo author Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832). That’s a good metaphor for you these days. Since I suspect you are currently shining as brightly as you possibly can, I will urge you to become acutely aware of the shadows you cast. In other words, try to catch glimpses of the unripe and unformed parts of your nature, which may be more easily seen than usual. Now, while you’re relatively strong and vibrant, investigate what aspects of your inner world might need improvement, care, and healing.

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio poet Ezra Pound had char-

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Poet Tess Gallagher praises those

times “when desire has strengthened our bodies.” I want you to have an abundance of those moments during the coming weeks. And I expect that cultivating them will be an excellent healing strategy. So here’s my advice: Do whatever’s necessary to summon and celebrate the strong longings that will strengthen your body. Tease them into bountiful presence. Treasure them and pay reverence to them and wield them with gleeful passion.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): “To live is so startling it leaves little

time for anything else,” observed poet Emily Dickinson. That’s the truth! Given how demanding it is to adjust to the nonstop challenges, distractions, and opportunities of the daily rhythm, I’m impressed that any of us ever get any work done. According to my astrological analysis, you Capricorns are now experiencing a big outbreak of this phenomenon. It’s probably even harder than usual to get work done, simply because life keeps bringing you interesting surprises that require your ingenuity and resourcefulness. The good news is that these surges of ingenuity and resourcefulness will serve you very well when the hubbub settles down a bit and you get back to doing more work.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Aquarius-born August Strindberg

(1849-1912) was a masterful and influential playwright. He also liked to dabble in painting and photography. His approach in those two fields was different from the polish he cultivated in his writing. “I am an amateur, and I intend to stay that way,” he testified about his approach in the visual arts. “I reject all forms of professional cleverness or virtuosity.” Just for now, Aquarius, I recommend you experiment with the latter attitude in your own field. Your skill and earnestness will benefit from doses of playful innocence, even calculated naïveté.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Which of the astrological signs feels

the deepest feelings? I say it’s you Pisceans. You’re connoisseurs of deep feelings, as well as specialists in mysterious, multi-splendored, brushes-with-infinity feelings. And right now, you’re in the Deepest Feelings Phase of your personal cycle. I won’t be surprised if you feel a bit overwhelmed with the richness of it all. But that’s mostly a good thing that you should be grateful for — a privilege and a superpower! Now here’s advice from deep-feeling author Pearl Buck: “You cannot make yourself feel something you do not feel, but you can make yourself do right in spite of your feelings.”

Las normas propuestas para enmienda son la VH 5.1 (designación de propiedad histórica), VH 5.2 (criterios de elegibilidad), VH 5.5 (alteraciones) y VH 5.6 (demoliciones).

NOTICE OF PLANNING COMMISSION PUBLIC HEARING (Electronically and Telephonically) June 14, 2021 at 6:00 P.M. Visual and Historic Resources Element General Plan Amendment Initiation Case No. 20-0004-GPA ATTENTION: Pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order N-29-20 dated March 17, 2020 authorizing local jurisdictions subject to the Brown Act to hold public meetings electronically and telephonically in order to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, the regular meeting of the Planning Commission on June 14, 2021 will be conducted electronically and telephonically. It will be broadcast live on the City’s website and on Cable Goleta Channel 19. The Council Chambers will not be open to the public during the meeting. The Planning Commission will be participating electronically and telephonically and will not be physically present in the Council Chambers. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that pursuant to California Government Code Section 65358 and Goleta Municipal Code section 17.67.040, the Planning Commission will, at a public hearing, consider and make a recommendation to the City Council regarding the proposed amendments to four policies of the Visual and Historic Resources Element in the Goleta General Plan/Coastal Land Use Plan (General Plan). The policies proposed to be amended are VH 5.1 (landmark designation), VH 5.2 (eligibility criteria), VH 5.5 (alterations), and VH 5.6 (demolitions). This GPA is proposed in conjunction with the Historic Preservation Ordinance. This GPA would be applicable Citywide. The proposed GPA will be considered on: HEARING DATE/TIME:

Monday, June 14, 2021, at 6:00 P.M.

PLACE: Teleconference Meeting; Given the local, state, and national state of emergency, this meeting will be a teleconferenced meeting (with detailed instructions for participation included on the posted agenda) The Planning Commission’s action will be advisory to the City Council. The date of City Council consideration has not been determined at this time and additional notification will be provided. ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FINDINGS: Pursuant to the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) (Public Resources Code, §§ 21000 et seq.), the regulations promulgated thereunder (14 Cal. Code of Regulations, §§ 15000, et seq.), and the City’s Environmental Review Guidelines, the project has been found to be exempt from CEQA and a Notice of Exemption is proposed. The City of Goleta is acting as the Lead Agency for this project and the Planning Commission will be making a recommendation on the CEQA action as well. The project has been found to be exempt from CEQA pursuant to State CEQA Guidelines Section 15061(b)(3) and 15378. The GPA amendment would not result in a direct or indirect physical change in the environment as the project is a text amendment. Further, the proposal will not have a significant effect on the environment as the project updates the existing language of four existing General Plan policies and does not change the intent of these policies. The City will continue to have policies regarding the designation of historic landmark properties, eligibility criteria, alterations, and demolition. IN LIGHT OF THE CITY’S NEED TO HOLD PUBLIC MEETINGS ELECTRONICALLY AND TELEPHONICALLY DURING THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC, written comments may be submitted via email to Deborah Lopez, City Clerk e-mail: cityclerkgroup@ cityofgoleta.org or by electronic means during the Public Hearing (date and time noted above), provided they are received prior to the conclusion of the public comment portion of the Public Hearing. Instructions on how to submit comments during the hearing will be available on the City’s website: https:// www.cityofgoleta.org/i-want-to/news-and-updates/government-meetingagendas-and-videos. FOR PROJECT INFORMATION: For further information on the project, contact Lisa Prasse, Current Planning Manager at 805-961-7542 or lprasse@cityofgoleta. org. Staff reports and documents will be posted approximately 72 hours before the hearing on the City’s website at https://www.cityofgoleta.org/i-want-to/ news-and-updates/government-meeting-agendas-and-videos. For inquiries in Spanish, please contact Sandra Rodriguez, Management Assistant, at 805-9617576 or srodriguez@cityofgoleta.org. Note: The action of the Planning Commission is not appealable as it will be a recommendation to the City Council. If you challenge the nature of the action in court, you may be limited to raising only those issues you or someone else raised at the public hearing described in this notice, or in written correspondence delivered to the Planning Commission at, or prior to, the public hearing (Government Code §65009[b][2]).

HERITAGE RIDGE 332 RESIDENTIAL RENTAL UNIT PROJECT CASE NO. 14-049-GPA-VTM-DP Located on the North Side of Camino Vista Between S. Los Carneros and Aero Camino Roads (North of Willow Springs II); APNs 073-060-031 through -043 ATTENTION: Pursuant to the Governor’s Executive Order N-29-20 dated March 17, 2020 authorizing local jurisdictions subject to the Brown Act to hold public meetings telephonically and electronically in order to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Environmental Hearing Officer (EHO) hearing will be conducted telephonically and electronically and broadcast live on the City’s website. The Council Chambers will not be open to the public during the meeting. The EHO will be participating electronically and telephonically and will not be physically present in the Council Chambers. This is a new notice with a new EHO hearing date. NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the City of Goleta (City), as Lead Agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (Public Resources Code §§ 21000, et seq.; “CEQA”), completed a Revised Draft Environmental Impact Report (Draft EIR) for the Heritage Ridge Residential Project (Project). A detailed description of the Project is provided below. The City invites comments on the adequacy and completeness of the environmental analysis and mitigation measures described in the Revised Draft EIR from May 14, 2021 through June 28, 2021. A meeting to take comments on the Revised Draft EIR will be held by the City Environmental Hearing Officer on: DATE AND TIME: Wednesday, June 16, 2021 at 5:00 P.M. (Previously scheduled on May 26, 2021) LOCATION: Teleconference Meeting Given the local, state, and national state of emergency, this meeting will be a teleconferenced meeting (with detailed instructions for participation included on the posted agenda) PROJECT DESCRIPTION SUMMARY: The Project components include the following: 1. A General Plan Amendment (14-049-GPA) to remove a designation of Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Area (ESHA) on the Open Space Map (Figure 3-5 in the Open Space Element of the General Plan/Coastal Land Use Plan) and on the Special Status Species and Environmentally Sensitive Habitat Areas Map (Figure 4-1 in the Conservation Element of the General Plan/Coastal Land Use Plan). 2. A Vesting Tentative Map (14-049-VTM) to allow the subdivision of the existing 17.36 gross acre (16.2 net acres) project site from 13 lots to 4 lots (2 lots for the Affordable housing complex, 1 lot for the market housing, and 1 lot for the public park). The subdivision map would also abandon two unused roads (Via Maya and Via Luisa). 3. Development Plan (14-049-DP) pursuant to GMC § 35-317 to allow construction of 332 rental units with associated recreational facilities. The rental units would be broken into two “neighborhoods” as follows: 104 up to a 100% supportive-units comprised of both senior affordable housing and family affordable housing units with separate recreational facilities; and 228 market-rate rental units with separate recreational facilities including a swimming pool. 4. Streamside Protection Area (SPA) buffer reduction in the northeast corner of the project site, varying from 0’ to 33’. 5. Vacation of portions of right of way and landscape easements adjacent to Los Carneros Road per Streets & Highway Code Section 8324 (b). Also proposed is a two-acre neighborhood public park to be dedicated to the City in the center of the site and three above ground bio-retention basins including a 15,000 square foot bio-retention basin in the southeast portion of the site. The site would be served by three access points onto Camino Vista. Preliminary raw earthwork volumes are estimated at 178,000 cubic yards of cut and 15,500 cubic yards of fill and 115,000 cubic yards of export. The project was filed by FLT Heritage Ridge TG, LLC in partnership with the Towbes Group of Towbes, LLC. In addition, the Housing Authority of Santa Barbara would be the developer for the supportive/affordable housing unit component. Location: The project site is located in the Inland area of the City and is situated on unaddressed parcels located on the north side of Camino Vista between Aero Camino and Calle Koral Roads in the City of Goleta, Santa Barbara County (APNs 073-060-031 through -043). Access to the Heritage Ridge site is from Camino Vista Road. The 17.36 gross acre (16.2 net acres) Heritage Ridge site is bounded on its north by Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) tracks, on the east by industrial buildings on Aero Camino Road, on its south by Camino Vista Road and Willow Springs II apartments, and on its west by S. Los Carneros Road/Overpass. The Project site had a General Plan land use designation of Medium-Density Residential (R-MD) with an Affordable Housing Overlay and had a Zoning designation of Design Residential (DR-20) prior to April 3, 2020. Since April 3, 2020, the property’s zoning designation is Medium Density Residential (R-MD). As the project was deemed complete prior to September 1, 2019, the development is being consider using Article III, Inland Zoning Ordinance. CHANGES REQUIRING RECIRCULATION AND ORGANIZATION OF THE REVISED DRAFT EIR A Draft EIR was circulated for public review in 2016 and the administrative draft Final EIR was completed in 2018. Since that time, the project has been revised to include the conversion of the senior component to an affordable housing component (targeting low/very low senior and family residents), reduction in the total number of housing units from 360 to 332 units, changed the mix of units from market rate and senior units to market rate (228 units) and affordable units (104 units) for senior and families, and to provide increased right-of-way along Los Carneros Road, resulting in a building setback shift along this roadway. The affordable unit component maybe up to 100% supportive housing if necessary funding is secured. Finally, the application was revised to remove the request for a parking modification because, as an affordable housing development, the project would qualify for reduced affordable housing parking requirements in accordance with Gov. Code Section 65915. These changes required revision to the EIR Project Description as well as updated analysis in the following issue areas: air quality, biological resources, greenhouse gas emissions, land use, noise, public services, transportation, and utilities and service systems. The proposed revisions to the project do not substantially change the overall development footprint or the project footprint relative to identified tribal cultural resources on the project site. Moreover, since completion of the prior Draft EIR for the prior design iteration of the project, new regulatory requirements and updated CEQA guidelines and thresholds (updated in late-2018), as well as changes to the project-level environmental and cumulative setting in the vicinity of the Project have occurred. As a result of these changes, additional analysis of topics, including air quality, greenhouse gas emissions transportation impact (thresholds have changed from Level of Service to Vehicles Miles Traveled), energy demand, tribal cultural resources, and wildfire risk, were added to the EIR. In addition, an updated site survey and records search was conducted to confirm the biological resources present on the Project site. Therefore, revisions to the prior Draft EIR are reflected in Section 2.0, Project Description, Sections 4.2 (Air Quality), 4.3 (Biological Resources), 4.4 (Cultural and Tribal Cultural), 4.6 (Greenhouse Gas), 4.9 (Land Use), 4.10 (Noise), 4.11 (Public Services), 4.13 (Transportation), 4.14 (Utilities) and 6.0 (Alternatives) of the Draft EIR. The cumulative setting/baseline has also been updated in Section 3.0, Related Projects. Further, new sections 4.16 and 4.17 have been added to the Revised Draft EIR in the areas of energy and wildfire, respectively, that were not included in the original Draft EIR. Section 6.0, Alternatives, was also updated to reflect the project description changes and changes to other sections of the Draft EIR. This recirculation also includes the relevant portions of appendices as originally contained in the Draft EIR and supplemented, as necessary, as a result of updates to the Project. PUBLIC REVIEW OF THE REVISED DRAFT EIR The Revised Draft EIR is available for a 45-day public review period from May 14, 2021 to June 28, 2021. The Revised Draft EIR is available on the City’s website at https://www.cityofgoleta. org/city-hall/planning-and-environmental-review/ceqa-review. Reviewers of this recirculated document should limit their comments to those that relate to the following chapters and sections of the Revised Draft EIR that have been revised or added and recirculated: • 2.0 Project Description • 3.0 Related Projects • 4.2 Air Quality • 4.3 Biological Resources • 4.4 Cultural and Tribal Cultural • 4.6 Greenhouse Gas Emissions • 4.9 Land Use • 4.10 Noise • 4.11 Public Services • 4.13 Transportation/Circulation • 4.14 Utilities and Service Systems • 4.16 Energy • 4.17 Wildfire • 6.0 Alternatives Significant and unavoidable project specific and cumulative impacts (Class I) are identified in the areas of; cultural resources (cumulative); noise (short construction noise impacts); and utilities and service systems (solid waste project and cumulative). Potentially significant, but mitigable, impacts on the environment (Class II) are anticipated in the areas of: aesthetics and visual resources (building heights/massing compatibility & lighting); air quality (exposure of sensitive receptors); biological resources (nesting/foraging birds, indirect habitat impacts/ wildlife linkage); cultural resources (impacts on Native American Site #CA-SBA-56); geology and soils (liquefaction potential, expansive and erodible soils); and hydrology and water quality (alteration of drainage patterns/increased impermeability). CORTESE LIST: The Project site is not listed on any hazardous waste facilities or disposal sites identified by Government Code § 65962.5 (the “Cortese list”). DOCUMENT AVAILABILITY and FURTHER INFORMATION: The Revised Draft EIR was posted on April 29, 2021 on the City’s website at www.cityofgoleta.org. For more information about this project, contact project planner Mary Chang at 805-961-7567 or mchang@cityofgoleta.org. PUBLIC COMMENT PERIOD: The public review period begins on May 14, 2021 and ends on June 28, 2021 at 5:00 P.M. All letters should be emailed to Mary Chang, Supervising Senior Planner at mchang@cityofgoleta.org. All comments must be received no later than 5:00 P.M. on June 28, 2021.

Wednesday June 30, 2021 at 5:00 P.M.

PROJECT LOCATION: The project would be located at the northern terminus of S. La Patera Lane on a 2.5-acre project site currently occupied by an industrial warehouse structure (former DRI building), a parking lot, outdoor storage area, and vehicle yard. The project is located near a number of regionally important areas, land uses, and transportation facilities, which include Old Town Goleta, University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB), the Santa Barbara Airport, US Hwy 101, the Union Pacific Railroad (UPRR) train corridor, and the existing Goleta Rail Station. PROJECT DESCRIPTION: The proposed project would include demolition of an existing industrial warehouse structure (approximately 39,800 square feet) in order to develop a new train depot on the City-owned property adjacent to the existing Goleta Rail Station and Union Pacific right-of-way. The proposed new train depot is anticipated to be approximately 9,000 square feet. It would provide a permanent, enclosed, and safe structure for Amtrak passengers to use as they wait to board or after they disembark from trains. The proposed train depot would be located in the northern portion of the project site adjacent to the railroad rightof-way. The proposed new train depot would include a lobby, vending machines, a café area for riders to purchase beverages and food, restroom facilities, multiple indoor waiting areas, a meeting room, an on-site ticketing area, as well as adequate luggage and storage space. The project will also accommodate bicycle access and provide onsite bicycle storage options, as well as ample vehicle parking on an adjacent surface parking lot. A proposed “Kiss N’ Ride” space in front of the building would allow for designated pick-up and drop-off locations for passengers. ENVIRONMENTAL REVIEW FINDINGS: The Draft EIR has been prepared pursuant to the requirements of the CEQA Guidelines, Article 7, EIR Process. The Draft EIR identifies potentially significant impacts in the following issue categories: biological resources, cultural and tribal cultural resources, and geology and soils. All impacted were determined to be less than significant with the implementation of mitigation measures. CORTESE LIST: The Project site is not listed on any hazardous waste facilities or disposal sites identified by Government Code § 65962.5 (the “Cortese list”). DOCUMENT AVAILABILITY and FURTHER INFORMATION: The Draft EIR and all documents referenced in the Draft EIR may be viewed on or after June 3, 2021 on the City’s website at https://www.cityofgoleta.org/city-hall/planning-andenvironmental-review/ceqa-review.
