DIVING INTO DELTOPIA Growing up in the Bay Area community of Woodside, Holly Rusch, seen here with her dog Flynn, practiced ballet for 14 years with dreams of dancing with a professional company one day. But instead of pliés, Rusch is studying political science at UCSB and writing about a variety of topics as part of the Independent’s internship program. This week, on page 8, she writes about the upcoming film Deltopia, which has Isla Vista’s party poopers in a tizzy.
OBITUARIES.. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 16
What was most surprising about this story? The media coverage that Isla Vista receives. To UCSB students, living in Isla Vista and attending Deltopia is just a part of their college experience, so the idea that it could be entertaining enough to be made into an actual movie is pretty crazy.

Have you done Deltopia yourself? I haven’t actually gotten to experience a true Deltopia because of COVID. So I’m not sure how I’ll feel seeing the movie, or if it will be an accurate retelling of my I.V. experience. Since the movie is about kids just out of high school, I have a feeling it won’t be. I am curious, though.

SBCC President Quits Effective Now
GODSPEED, GOSWAMI: Of the past SBCC presidents forced from office, Dr. Utpal Goswami is the first and only one to have quit immediately.
tend, Goswami was autocratic in style but indecisive and ineffective. Perhaps most unforgivably, he never cottoned on to the culture of “shared governance” that holds sway at City College with uncommon fervor. “What he ran into was the buzz saw of shared governance,” stated boardmember Kate Parker. “If you don’t respect that, you’re going to have a terrible time.” And by any reckoning, Goswami has been having just that. Since May, the Board of
‘What he ran into was the buzz saw of shared governance. If you don’t respect that, you’re going to have a terrible time.’ —KATE PARKER, SBCC BOARDMEMBER community,” proclaimed then board chair Robert Miller. Goswami, the community was told, could restore the campus’s fiscal order and navigate the hot-button issues of inclusion, race, and diversity with empathy and effectiveness. Today, his critics con-
Pitcher Michael McGreevy (above) of UCSB was selected by the St. Louis Cardinals with the 18th overall pick in the Major League Baseball Draft. Another UCSB hurler, left-hander Rodney Boone, was taken in the eighth round of the draft by the Cleveland Indians. Boone was the 51st Gaucho selected in the MLB Draft during the nine seasons Andrew Checketts has been their head coach. UCSB announced this week that Checketts has signed a contract extension through the 2028 season. Full story at independent.com/mcgreevy.
Trustees has been meeting in closed session to evaluate his performance. Extra sessions have been required. No final verdict has been rendered. The length of the deliberations speaks for itself. This week, the faculty senate is scheduled to hold a no-confidence vote on
Goswami regarding his lack of support for its mandatory vaccination proposal. He, it should be noted, is not the only focus of that vote; also included are the four boardmembers who voted on June 24 to reject it. In the meantime, Goswami has had to contend with a budget deficit that veers from $3 million to $8 million while key administrators leave to take jobs elsewhere. COVID, clearly, has made his task infinitely harder. But it also became obvious to all sides — Goswami especially — that the time to repair burned bridges had come and gone. Of the past presidents forced from office, Goswami is the first and only one to have quit immediately. He has agreed, however, to make himself available as a consultant for 30 days. For that, he will be paid. In addition, he will be paid his full annual salary of $317,000 as part of the severance package he negotiated when he was initially hired. Kathleen Scott will be filling in for Goswami while a search is conducted for a permanent replacement. Scott had been hired from the Long Beach Community College to function as interim executive vice president to fill the void created by one of the higherlevel administrative departures. Scott’s hiring for that position was just announced; most n boardmembers have not yet met her.
Last week, the federal government distributed 289 emergency housing vouchers — wor th $3 million — to the county for those experiencing or on the brink of homelessness. These funds are cour tesy of the American Rescue Plan Act, which set aside $5 billion nationwide for homeless housing vouchers. Distributing the vouchers and vetting the applicants will be the city and county housing authorities. Participating landlords will get $1,500 signing bonuses, $2,000 in protec tive insurance, and one month’s rent worth of security deposits per client leased up.

COMMUNITY S.B. ZO O
by Nick Welsh ince 2008, Santa Barbara City College has witnessed five superintendents/presidents come and go. This week, Dr. Utpal Goswami — hired in November 2019 from a community college in Kansas City, Missouri — made it number six. But unlike the previous five, Goswami made his resignation effective immediately. “I don’t have any significant comments to make. I don’t want to go into any detail,” he stated when contacted for an explanation. “The board and I don’t agree on some things,” he added. Perhaps the most obvious bone of contention remains the lack of any clear plan for what to do about the lingering pandemic once classes resume in just six weeks. “That’s a significant one,” Goswami conceded. Right now, the Academic Senate is pushing hard for mandatory vaccinations for any returning students, staff, and faculty before on-site classes can take place. On this matter, the board itself is badly split. Goswami and the administration has yet to weigh in with any clear proposal; nor has he — his critics contend — brokered the level of consultation and collaboration among faculty, staff, and administrators necessary to achieve some form of consensus. In this lurch, individual faculty members have been left to figure out what sense to make of contradictory administrative emails and are on their own whether to teach some, all, or no classes in person or virtually. City College has been notoriously hard on its presidents; some boardmembers privately concede it’s an impossible job. But when Goswami was hired, there were high hopes he’d prove such concerns wrong. “We are confident he will build collaborative relationships on campus and the

Four Seasons ‘Furloughs’ Spread
s Biltmore hotel employees face their 15th month of “furlough,” management company Four Seasons and owner Ty Warner held a second mediation to negotiate compensation with the workers’ attorney on Saturday. The hotel, purchased by Warner in 2000 for upward of $100 million, closed for the pandemic in March 2020. After employees held a public demonstration demanding to know if their hotel would reopen, in August the Four Seasons announced the Biltmore would undergo renovations through 2021. It then announced this year that all reservations were canceled through 2022. This June, the same announcement was made for Four Seasons’ flagship hotel in New York City, also owned by Warner, causing grief and heartburn, according to some members of its staff, who have similarly been furloughed since March 2020. “There is no renovation going on. It’s a ruse, a strategy, a hoax to avoid paying separation,” said one senior staff member, who requested anonymity. “Everyone has been forced to resign, retire, or drop dead,” she said, explaining that some of her colleagues were unable to buy insulin when their health insurance ended or had nowhere to live when they couldn’t pay their rent. The New York hotel is partially unionized, and one union member said the hotel had undergone an extensive three-year renovation five years ago. They said that ordinarily, renovations occur in one part of the hotel while the remainder of the rooms stay occupied, with constant apologies to guests but
a continual income stream to the company. It’s possible, but unlikely, that Four Seasons, a Canadian company that is owned in part by Bill Gates and Prince Alwaleed bin Talal of Saudi Arabia, and Biltmore owner Ty Warner, who is said to be worth $4 billion, might not need an income stream. Warner, who made his bones with Beanie Babies, just restored his San Ysidro Ranch hotel, which suffered extensive damage to the cottages and grounds, and a complete wipeout of its wine cellar, during 2018’s debris flow through Montecito. He also has permit issues to contend with; when his Montecito Club neighbor Angelo Mozilo brought suit regarding pickleball noise complaint—after a $75 million makeover that added a Sports Complex — the city Planning Commission followed up by giving the club 120 days to conform to requirements of the permits they’d neglected to acquire. About 450 workers are involved in the Santa Barbara furlough, including many of whom have been with the Biltmore for decades. Attorney Bruce Anticouni represents more than 250 employees and contends the furlough turned into a layoff after six months had passed, according to federal labor laws. The mediation began on April 30, with the second round held July 10. Anticouni, who states as much as $6 million could be owed to employees as severance per their employment contract, said through a spokesperson that an announcement would be made July 27 on the media—Jean Yamamura tion outcome.

s it does every so often, the Hope Ranch “volcano” rumbled to life this weekend. “The temperamental geological phenomenon known as the Hope Ranch Volcano awoke Saturday morning, starting a small but smoky vegetation fire on the hillside approx. 1 mile west of Arroyo Burro Beach,” said County Fire spokesperson Mike Eliason in a tweet. The small blaze didn’t threaten any structures and was quickly put down, Eliason said.

The supervisors heard much discussion about “off-ramps” and “diversion strategies,” with much enthusiasm but few specifics. Currently, 6.7 percent of misdemeanor cases are referred to diversion programs. Everyone agreed the current system needs to be improved. Supervisor Steve Lavagnino announced he was breaking the meeting’s “kumbaya” vibe by revisiting the case of a state prison inmate who fought four major wildfires while incarcerated and was seeking to have his record expunged so he could apply for a job as a firefighter. Lavagnino described how the inmate was convicted of beating his former girlfriend’s head bloody with a whiskey bottle and then hovered over her with a knife. The victim, who was a person of color, managed to escape, but the inmate chased after her. It was like a horror movie, Lavagnino said. Though the current system of locking people up does not work, Lavagnino acknowledged, he questioned whether not locking them up —Nick Welsh worked that much better.

Ricky Phillips, 55, was arrested 7/9 on charges of rape and attempted murder, police said. The alleged assault had occurred the day before at a homeless encampment located near the railroad tracks at Montecito Street, officials said. Police spotted him walking in the 1500 block of Bath Street and attempted to arrest him, but he violently resisted and punched an officer in the face, according to police. Phillips himself was injured as he was secured in handcuffs. Phillips was booked in County Jail, and his arraignment is pending.

Caltrans Spotlights Roadkill Hotspot
rom anecdotal evidence alone, Highway 101 at the Gaviota grade has claimed three large wild animals in the past two months, two of them on the California endangered species list. Caltrans narrowed the scope of a one-year wildlife study to the top of the grade at Nojoqui summit to Mariposa Reina; it begins in August to see where a crossing is needed to connect the landscape broken by the well-traveled highway. The most recent victim is a mountain lion reported dead by a reader on the southbound 101 along the Gaviota Pass on June 29, though Highway Patrol could not confirm the kill. Before that, a juvenile female lion and an 8- to 10-year-old black bear were killed in the same area on May 16. According to Doug Campbell of the Coastal Ranches Conservancy, that was the fifth mountain lion confirmed as a kill in the past four years. Because the number is based on calls to the Highway Patrol, an unknown quantity of deer, skunk, bobcat, fox, raccoon, and coyote have been killed, too, according to maps Campbell’s group has compiled. Mountain lions were placed on the state’s endangered list in 2019. Anyone who purposely kills a mountain lion is fined $50,000, but motor vehicle accidents don’t count, said Tim Daly, a spokesperson for California Fish & Wildlife. Caltrans has successfully built wildlife crossings as part of a large Highway 46 widening project between Paso Robles and

Bakersfield. It includes fencing to direct wildlife into the tunnel and culverts, mainly for the San Joaquin kit fox, spokesperson Jim Shivers said, though mule deer and bats have also been spotted there. Two wildlife crossing projects are also set for Highway 17 in Santa Cruz County. One goes to bid this month, and another is being studied in the Santa Cruz Mountains outside Los Gatos. Campbell’s group and the Gaviota Coast Conservancy tried to persuade Caltrans to enlarge the culvert planned at Cañada del Barro at the base of the Gaviota Pass, going so far as to appeal the project last fall. A lastminute deal brokered by Supervisor Gregg Hart had Caltrans agreeing to fund a $30,000 study. The consultant will study the pathways the animals are taking between now and next July in the hope of concluding where best to build a wildlife crossing in Gaviota. —Jean Yamamura
Crisis Stabilization Unit Approved
fter many moons of delicate backdoor negotiations, the Santa Barbara County supervisors unanimously approved a psychiatric care contract with Marian Medical in Santa Maria to launch a new Crisis Stabilization Unit (CSU), said to be a much-needed temporary waystation for patients in the throes of acute psychiatric crisis. Although Marian will open eight new beds—technically reclining chairs—only three will be reserved for county Behavioral Wellness clients. Participation is voluntary, and the length of stay is restricted to no more than 23 hours. Longtime mental-health advocate Lynne Gibbs said such spaces—however abbreviated—could divert patients from the stressinducing confines of county emergency rooms, where the numbers of acute-care patients is growing, as is the length of stays. Gibbs expressed hope the new CSU can provide “a quiet, safe environment” and “a relaxing setting.” In Contra Costa County, she said, such units served 900-1,200 patients a month and that in Santa Cruz, the number was 1,600 a year. These recliners—coupled with treatment—reduced the demand for involuntary holds on psychiatric hospitals by 35 to 70 percent, Gibbs said. A similar unit has existed in southern Santa Barbara County for seven years, but 10

in the last year, it’s admitted only one new patient a day. Suzanne Grimmesey, spokesperson for Behavioral Wellness, attributed the lower-than-expected numbers to COVID and the fact that participation is voluntary. Mental-health advocates have expressed frustration that the powers that be did not promote the CSU more energetically and suggested that chronic staffing shortages afflicting the county’s 16-bed psychiatric hospital has distracted resources that might have yielded greater use. Supervisor Bob Nelson praised all the private donors that helped Marian Medical open the new unit; without them, he said, it never would have happened. Supervisor Steve Lavagnino—whose district includes Santa Maria—praised the likes of Gibbs for knocking on the county’s door until “finally kicking it open.” Big, sprawling issues such homelessness and mental illness, Lavagnino said, “are not going to be solved by the five of us [supervisors]. Congress is not going to solve it. I’m not sure they’re ever going to get solved. But they can be improved,” he said. “Increasing our capacity is critical.” The contract calls for the creation and staffing for eight people in the new CSU, with the capacity of increasing to 12. —Nick Welsh

POWER PLAYER: In front of Das Williams and the four other county supervisors this Tuesday was an ambitious proposal to change the land-use rules to effectively legalize large-scale solar power.
Let There Be Light Supes Move to Increase Large-Scale Solar Throughout Entire County by Nick Welsh upervisor Das Williams was in a mood to preach. How could Santa Barbara hold itself up to the rest of the world as the birthplace of the environmental movement and the paragon of environmental virtue, he demanded, when large-scale solar operations had been all but outlawed by county zoning rules? Only in the hinterlands of the Cuyama Valley — Santa Barbara County’s parched high desert—were industrial-scale solar installations allowed, and then only on 600 acres of land. In front of Williams and the four other county supervisors this Tuesday was an ambitious proposal to change the land-use rules to effectively legalize large-scale solar power. It was a good start, Williams said, but, “We’re in danger of perpetuating the hypocrisy by putting all our solar in North County,” he complained. The planning document, he and all the supervisors agreed, needed to be opened up considerably to expand where industrial-scale solar operations—not to be confused with rooftop solar installations—could go. But the back-and-forth between the supervisors and their planning staff — and among themselves — made it apparent that the challenge before them was far more complicated than the flick of a switch. The issue confronting the energy planners charged with transforming Williams’s big dreams into zoning reality was—and will be—the finite answers to such questions as: Why investigate zoning changes for commercial and industrial parcels if there are only 85 acres’ worth of vacant land? After taking inventory of all the vacant land existing in 22 different zoning designations, they concluded the most solar bang for the county’s solar buck could be obtained on large-scale agricultural operations—land zoned Ag II. Nearly one million acres in Santa Barbara County is classified Ag II, tend to be larger and farther away from urban centers, and is almost exclusively located in North County. By contrast, Ag I has only 35,000 acres. Williams pushed back to open up more land to solar. Supervisor Bob Nelson, the most conservative member of the board, said the zoning should be changed to allow solar
installation on every parcel in the county. Not everyone was willing to go that far. Supervisor Joan Hartmann, for example, was clearly mindful of similar efforts to open up the county to newly legalized cannabis. The specter of hoop houses, popular among outdoor cannabis cultivators, hovered overhead as the supervisors discussed the expansive possibilities of solar installations. Hartmann, as the elected representative for much of wine country, has felt firsthand the pinch of push coming to shove between cannabis and grapes. Williams questioned why the two massive oil-processing plants along the Gaviota Coast were not included in the energy planners’ proposed changes. Didn’t it make sense to allow these two plants—shut down since the Plans All American pipeline rupture of 2015 —to convert to solar? Didn’t they meet the definition of industrial? The planners noted that both fell within the rubric of the Gaviota Coast Plan; to allow industrial solar there would require them to rewrite the DNA of a plan that took more than a decade of grueling public input to pass. A pistachio farmer from Cuyama questioned why 900 acres of AG I land was not included in the inventory as well. Williams argued that solar farming will grow more economically attractive in Cuyama as state-mandated water-reduction schemes—5 percent per year for five years—take effect. Supervisor Hartmann interjected that there’s not enough grid capacity in the Cuyama Valley to handle much more solar energy. And most of the juice generated there, it turns out, is sold out of county. In the end, nothing was written in stone. The supervisors indicated they wanted more industrial-scale solar, and they wanted it faster. Supervisor Hartmann expressed concern that she have “more bites at the apple” when it comes to permitting and environmental review. Williams expressed satisfaction that his daughter—present because of a lack of childcare — could be present to witness the board deliberations. “Legalizing solar is enormously important for our future,” he said. “To be the kind of community that preaches the environmental message but also lives it, that’s enormously important.” n

The Dog Who Cried Poop
BAD NEWS: Every now and again, you get
something totally right and still get it totally wrong. A case in point: Last week, I wrote a news article detailing how Heal the Bay —a statewide clean-water watchdog—declared Santa Barbara’s East Beach belonged on their annual “Summer Bummer” list of the 10
most fecally compromised public beaches
in California. This was the first time in 31 years East Beach—located at the confluence of Mission Creek and the Pacific Ocean — found itself on Heal the Bay’s wall of shame. The L.A. Times plastered this ignominious news about East Beach—as well as the rest of Heal the Bay’s report card—on its front page. The New York Times did the same. Naturally, I followed suit. If publications known alternately in better days as “the Gray Lady” and “the Velvet Coffin” were writing about dirty water in our beautiful, pristine Santa Barbara, who was I not to? All this concentrated attention begged the much bigger question: Is there really such a thing as bad publicity? first posed, we are told, by either P.T. Barnum or Oscar Wilde. Based on my empirical observations, I’d say the answer is no. The teeming throngs either don’t read or don’t care. Even after this carpet bombing of negative publicity, the intersection of State and Cabrillo remains one of the most heavily trod in all of Santa Barbaradom. And who the hell swims down there anyway? MersoAds-Analyze Grow Indy Print.pdf
The story broke during the Fourth of July weekend, meaning it was next to impossible
to get informed reactions from the public health officials and city bureaucrats whose job it is to make sure our beaches are kept safe at least where E. coli, Enterococcus, and total coliform counts are concerned. These are the unholy trinity of bacterial indicators that suggest the presence of animal feces in the water. They are used to further suggest the possibility that the health of people swimming in such waters might be at some elevated level of potential risk. County Public Health officers test East Beach—and 15 other beaches in Santa Barbara County—every week all year. If they get readings that exceed thresholds established by the state legislature, public warnings are issued. What those warnings mean and what value they offer is open to serious doubt and interpretation. They are akin, I suspect, to someone shouting “Watch out!” as you drive down the road but offering no helpful elaboration as to for what and from what direction it’s coming. In other words, our pineal freak-out gland gets activated, but the brain is left guessing. For the record, East Beach experienced 18 exceedances in 2020. Those form the basis of its inclusion on the Summer Bummer list of 2021. The year before that, it experienced 19, but somehow it failed to make the Summer Bummer wall of shame. This year—2021—we’ve experienced just three. Typically at East Beach, any means 1 exceedance 7/12/21 3:46 PM it rained and that
Sewer Lagoon had enough water, power, and flow to breach the sandbar blocking its mouth. But how does knowing what happened a year ago help me decide whether it’s safe for me to go in the water today? The problem is actually way more complicated. After my article had already run, I got around to interviewing Jill Murray of the city’s Creeks Division. Murray has a PhD in oceanography with a specialty in environmental microbiology. As a kid, she grew up in Los Angeles playing in an estuary that’s subsequently been diverted to the nearby neighborhood wastewater treatment plant for scrubbing. And she surfs. If East Beach had waves worth a damn, Murray said, she’d surf them in a heartbeat. Murray’s problem with the Heal the Bay report isn’t so much that it reflects a reality that occurred a year ago; it’s that they’re measuring the wrong thing. The three bacterial indicators religiously tested by public health officials statewide suggest the presence of fecal matter originating in the gut of some unspecified mammal or bird. It does not indicate the extent to which the poop in question is of human origin. And that is key. The presence of human feces poses the possibility of serious health risk; seagull guano and dog poop, by contrast, most definitely do not. Based on DNA analysis paid for by City Hall in conjunction with UCSB, we know the vast majority of the poop washing into the surf at East Beach originates with seagulls and
dogs. That’s not a health problem. Beaches elsewhere in the state have spent millions steam-blasting their beach sand and stringing up vast spiderwebs of wires designed to keep gulls away. But who in their right mind wants to chase birds from the beach to eliminate a threat that poses no risk? Based on a recently released UCSB study involving 2,000 tests taken over a three-year period, we know that East Beach—by Sycamore Creek — tends to test positive for DNA markers indicating human waste. But these markers appear in such tiny amounts they can’t even be counted. What’s the cause? They ruled out homeless camps; they ruled out septic runoff from RVs that park nearby; they ruled out people pooping in the ocean at night; and, after injecting fluorescent dyes into nearby restrooms, they ruled out leaking toilet pipes. Their best guess? The more swimmers there were in the water, the researchers found, the higher the indicator counts were for “fecal shedding” of human origin. Swimming races had the highest counts. By necessity, all reporters are dogs who cry wolf. It’s not so much an occupational hazard as it is our actual job. There’s only so much flight-or-fight stimulation any adrenal gland can tolerate. All the endless barking becomes noise and nuisance, not useful information. In the meantime, maybe I’ll go swimming, but not at East Beach. Nobody swims at East —Nick Welsh Beach.

AGAPANTHUS & SALVIAS
he people of Santa Barbara County need to know the real story behind the recent lawsuit filed against them by the Central Coast Water Authority (CCWA). This agency, made up of appointed members of the water agencies of the county who manage the State Water Project (SWP), has sued the Board of Supervisors because the board voted to allow them to buy water when needed, but not sell water to any entity outside the county. Why would Santa Barbara sell any water at this time of drought? The water it has ordered from the State Water Project has very seldom been delivered at the full contracted amount. The state has only delivered 28 percent of what it promised when the project came online in 1998. Given our years of water shortage, if we have any extra water, why would we want to sell it outside our county? We think the answer lies in the recent commodity marketing of water as a profit-making venture. And we believe that CCWA seeks profit and power as suggested by the agency’s recent request to wrest total control of the State Water Project from the County Board of Supervisors. The State Department of Water Resources and the county are signatories to the State Water Contract, and while the Board of Supervisors has a Memorandum of Understanding allowing CCWA to manage that water, it has not given up its authority to being the final arbiter of how that contract is amended. This is important because in the event of payment default by SWP contractors, the county has the taxing authority to avoid bankruptcy. CCWA would very much like the county to disappear from the SWP picture. Water is the life blood of our county. We need it for our life, our livelihoods, our environment. The Board of Supervisors should be encouraged to fight this lawsuit with all its might.

he article “Santa Barbara’s Black, Latinx Grads Less Likely to Get into California’s Public Universities” and subsequent letter, “Too Much Too Soon,” highlight a serious problem in our community. We have been teaching the same way for years. The needs of white students are prioritized over the needs of Latinx and Black students. Data shows that Latinx and Black students face serious inequities as we fail to meet their educational needs. It’s time for
our community to try some new approaches. Multilingualism is an asset. Dual-language immersion (DLI) is a research-based model that is largely proven to be effective. The decision to implement DLI in Santa Barbara was made by leadership who largely mirror the population that will benefit from the program. Despite the contrasting scores in the case of Franklin and Adelante schools highlighted in the letter, research shows that dual-language immersion programs are actually more likely to boost the probability of reclassification to “fluent English proficient.” Bilingual education programs enhance a child’s fund of knowledge in both English and Spanish by emphasizing content knowledge and literacy development in the native language. Content knowledge gained thus builds confidence and only helps the English the student hears become more comprehensible. Research shows that literacy gained in one language transfers to additional acquired languages. Despite all the noise, socioeconomic status remains a consistent predictor of academic success. Criticisms of dual-language immersion are red herrings that distract from the real problem: Some students in Santa Barbara remain systematically better supported than others. White people, even as allies, are not the experts on what education for historically disenfranchised student groups should look like or feel like. Can the Santa Barbara community make space for the voices of those who have never been served well? Let’s give this exciting new project the opportunity it deserves. English-language proficiency isn’t the main problem facing our students and schools; inequality in —Nathan Baskett, S.B. our community is.

Ann Ashbrook Lorimer 8/18/1924 - 6/25/2021
Lois Ann Ashbrook was born in Park Ridge IL August 18, 1924. She died at age 96 at Vista del Monte assisted living in Santa Barbara on June 25, 2021. Ann spent her childhood and early adult life in Illinois and especially cherished her days in Crystal Lake. Ann attended Dennison University from 1942-1944. She then married her longtime sweetheart Walter Mike Lorimer who was completing his tenure with the United States Navy. After finishing his college education, Mike enrolled at Harvard Law School. Ann and Mike lived in Boston for the next few years and Ann gave birth to their first child Michael George. Next, the Lorimers settled in Los Angeles where their second son Daniel Shepardson was born. Mike practiced law in the entertainment industry. When Ann’s sons were teenagers, she returned to college at UCLA from 19661970. She earned her Masters in Public Health, Phi Beta Kappa. Ann worked at UCLA Health Services Research 16
from 1971-1983. Her work focused on treatment and prevention of childhood illnesses. One aspect of her job she found especially rewarding was mentoring young immigrant mothers. In 1983, Ann and Mike moved to Santa Barbara and loved every minute of living here. For more than 10 years, they became worldwide travelers. Ann was a diligent daily walker usually enjoying a 5 mile hike up and down the Riviera hills. Ann’s marriage of more than 50 years ended when her beloved Mike died of illness in December, 2000. For more than 20 years, Ann generously served her Santa Barbara community as a volunteer in various organizations. Her favorites were the Santa Barbara Botanical Gardens and the League of Women Voters, Voters Services and Education Committee. Ann was a patron of the Music Academy of the West and the Metropolitan Opera in New York City among numerous other charities. She loved music and attended hundreds of concerts both in Santa Barbara and New York City. Another great love of Ann’s was reading — both fiction and non-fiction. She had a prodigious memory for books she had read decades ago. Ann belonged to a bookclub that continued for more than 25 years. Members became her closest friends and meetings were a highlight of her month. Ann was much loved by her family members and many friends. She will be greatly missed. Ann is survived by two sons, Michael and wife Judith, and Daniel. Two grandchildren, Cari Lutz and her husband Michael and Jack Lorimer and his wife Marina. Four greatgrandchildren, Sophia, Natasha, Vincent and Nathan.

Leatrice (Abramson) Luria, 93, passed away peacefully on June 10, 2021, in Santa Barbara, California, the city in which she made her colorful mark for nearly seven decades. Lee was born in New Hampshire on April 29, 1928, and grew up mostly in Newton, Massachusetts. When she was 18, she went on a blind date with a man named Eli Luria; within three months, they were married. They would remain by each other’s side for the next 59 years. The young couple soon moved to Arlington, Virginia, where they welcomed their daughter, Kandy. Four years later, they migrated cross-country to Los Angeles, pursuing Eli’s dream of building houses in Southern California. In 1954, they settled in Santa Barbara, where Lee would spend the rest of her life. Lee quickly became a pillar of the Santa Barbara community — a generous supporter of local art, music, culture, and education. She was classy and sassy, a natural leader who easily commanded any board room or fundraising event. She was generous with both her time and her money, helping many organizations craft — and then accomplish — their vision. She was focused and driven: a finisher who never let anything stand in her way. In 1985, and later joined by their daughter Kandy, she and Eli started the Luria Family Foundation as a means of expanding their philanthropy. Lee was an especially devoted patron of the Music Academy of the West, Ensemble Theatre
Company, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, Santa Barbara City College Foundation and Jewish Federation of Greater Santa Barbara. In addition to her philanthropic work, Lee was a talented glass artist and ceramicist, an adventurous world traveler, an excellent mahjong and bridge player, a lover of cats, gin and tonics with lots of lime and ice, and bright red cars. Lee will be remembered as magnetic and positive, the kind of person who drew you in and drew you close. She was witty, curious, and sharp as a tack. She was meticulously organized and detail-oriented, often making plans six months in advance — and always reviewing every menu item for the many fabulous events she hosted. Having celebrated her 50th wedding anniversary at the Santa Barbara Zoo as a black-tie affair, Lee perfectly balanced her West Coast home with her East Coast roots. She was elegant and sophisticated, without ever being pretentious or stuffy (and always impeccably dressed). She was strong and tough, blunt and opinionated, fearless and confident. Lee was, quite simply, a force: a woman who didn’t suffer fools, who didn’t take “no” for an answer, who marched to the beat of her own drum. By energetically solving every problem that came her way, she forever shaped Santa Barbara’s streets and shores. Let us continue her legacy by striving to make a difference each day. Because, as Lee would say: “What are you waiting for?” Lee was predeceased by her husband, Eli Luria. She is survived by her daughter, Kandy Budgor, and sonin-law, Aaron Budgor, of Santa Barbara, California; her grandson, Adam Budgor, granddaughter, Mindy Budgor, and granddaughterin-law, Soraya Scroggins, of New York, New York.
Brian Richard Volpi 7/17/1974 - 6/9/2021
Brian Volpi passed away unexpectedly in Cusco, Peru. Oldest son of Richard and Jacqueline Volpi, Brian was a lifelong Santa Barbara native and always proud of his status as a local. In 2002, he earned a degree in History from UCSB. His joy and lifelong passion was skateboarding. Around 10 years of age he began skating constantly. He and his friends would meet up all around SB, spending their time going to different skate spots. His other passion was biking and rehabbing discarded bicycles. He eventually started Pedi-cabbing off Cabrillo Blvd., where the beach scene of visitors and other riders served as another outlet to be out and about. Brian chose to live in downtown SB with his RV, where he could live modestly. He often parked near Skater’s Point in the mornings and could be found in Rocky Nook Park in the afternoons. If people knew of Brian or had recently seen him around, they commented on his dog Alfie. The two were always together. Alfie rode around on the back of Brian’s scooter in a milk-crate attached to the back. Brian is survived by his younger brother Brett and his family. We will be honoring Brian’s unique and beautiful life on July 17th, at 10am in Palm Park Parking lot. We hope you will come and join us.

obituaries Dr. Edward Crowther 3/4/1929 - 6/26/2021
Husband, Father, Grandfather, Great Grandfather, Professor, Bishop, Civil Rights Activist, Psychotherapist Born on March 4, 1929 in Bradford, England. Dr. C. Edward Crowther passed away surrounded by family on Saturday, June 26th overlooking his beloved Santa Barbara. Growing up in Yorkshire, Dr. Crowther attended the University of Leeds and then Cuddesdon College, Oxford. He taught criminal and constitutional law at Exeter College, Oxford before moving on to a different career path within the Anglican Church. He was ordained deacon in 1956 and priest in 1957. Edward served as curate at St. Philip and St. James' Church, Oxford, between 1956 and 1958. A gifted speaker with a commanding presence, Edward went on a preaching tour in the United States, before becoming Chaplain at UCLA. At UCLA he got his start in the civil rights movement by picketing against racial discrimination in fraternities, sororities and businesses. This activism led to a position as Dean of St Cyprian’s Cathedral, in Kimberley, South Africa in September 1964. He quickly rose within the ranks of the church, becoming Episcopal Bishop of Kimberley and Kuruman in 1965. At just 36 years old he was the youngest Bishop at the time. An outspoken critic of Apartheid, a pivotal moment during his time in South Africa was
To submit obituaries for publication, please call (805) 965-5205 or email email@example.com when 1,000 Black South Africans were thrown out of their homes and moved by the government from their native community to a compound 25 miles away. Bishop Crowther visited and found most of the people without food and water, many not having eaten in days. Vowing to effect change, he garnered international press coverage on the matter, led food drives, invited people of color into his home and dined with them in restaurants. These activities brought the attention of authorities, subjecting him to weekly police interviews and a police car stationed outside of his home. When Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. invited Bishop Crowther to give the keynote address on racism at the Pacem in Terris conference in Geneva in 1967, photos of the event made their way to South Africa and the Minister of The Interior drew up papers forbidding his return. In defiance, Bishop Crowther returned to South Africa, was arrested, and given a short time to prepare for deportation. On the day of his deportation people traveled for miles to the tarmac of the Kimberley Airport. Many in the crowd were barefoot, singing “God be with you till we meet again” and songs of South Africa. After South Africa Bishop Crowther went on a worldwide speaking tour, eventually settling in California and becoming Assistant Bishop of California. He joined the faculty of The Black Studies Department at UC Santa Barbara, obtained a PhD in Psychology from UCSB, and taught Psychology at both UCSB and SBCC Adult Education. He was one of the founders of the popular Mind/Supermind lecture series before shifting his focus to treating patients, with an emphasis on hypnosis. Dr. Crowther
tested the waters of retirement with a move to the South of France in the early 2000s, but people were his passion and he found retirement unfulfilling. Dr. Crowther returned to Santa Barbara and his psychotherapy practice, continuing to treat patients until shortly before his death. Dr. Crowther was honored to count Martin Luther King Jr, Bobby Kennedy and Archbishop Desmond Tutu colleagues in the fight for equality. He participated in and led civil rights demonstrations, anti war marches, spoke before the United Nations and was a fellow at The Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions. Dr. Crowther’s doctoral dissertation, Care Versus Cure in Terminal Illness (1975) highlighted three major themes in palliative care, pain, loneliness, and loss of control and led to the founding of a Santa Barbara County Hospice. Dr. Crowther is also the author of Religious Truststheir development, scope and meaning(1958), Where Religion Gets Lost in the Church(1968), The Face of Apartheid (1971) and Intimacy- strategies for successful relationships (1986). An avid traveler, Dr. Crowther continued to travel internationally prior to the Covid-19 pandemic but found no greater beauty than evenings spent at the Santa Barbara Harbor in the company of family and friends, watching Santa Barbara as the mountains turned pink. He is survived by his wife, Claudette Crowther, son Paul, (Joyce Crowther), daughters Alison Crowther and Deborah Bahre, granddaughters Kimberley Warkentin (William Warkentin), Ainsley Hughes (Nicholas Gray), Brittany Saavedra (John Saavedra), Jessica Galambos and grandson
Brandon Bahre. Edward was delighted to be a great grandfather to great granddaughters Emma and Clementine Saavedra, Eva Warkentin and great grandsons Wesley and Wyatt Gray.

obituaries Jeanne Cooley Greeley Thayer 9/26/1917 - 7/6/2021
Jeanne Cooley Greeley Thayer passed away on July 6, 2021, at the age of 103. Jeanne began a long life on September 26, 1917. As a child of an army officer, Jeanne spent years living abroad in Hawaii, the Philippines, and Paris, sowing within her an appreciation of culture that would echo through her accomplishments later in life. At the young age of 17, Jeanne moved alone to New York City with aspirations towards becoming an actress. Her strong desire to act drove her to pursue work in the intimidating world of show business, where she began as a model and moved on to secure a role in the play entitled The Women. Whether an active participant or attentive spectator, Jeanne developed a love for theater and the performing arts. During World War II, Jeanne served as an analyst for the Informational Intelligence Unit of the Air Transport Command before mourning the death of her first husband, Horace Greeley, killed as a prisoner of war in Bataan. After the war, Jeanne remarried and began a family with Walter N. Thayer. During this time, she started a new chapter of her life, endorsing the arts and education in countless forms. She was a member of the Westchester Council of the Arts, the Council at the College of Purchase, and, later, a member of the Board of Trustees of 18
the State University of New York. Two fellowships are given in her honor, in fine and performing arts, both of which are still awarded to graduating students at SUNY. Beyond her service to academia, Jeanne remained committed to other organizations of the arts, participating on the boards of the New York City Ballet, Sleepy Hollow Restorations (now Historic Hudson Valley), and was a Life Trustee of the Museum of Modern Art, with which she served on many committees, including the International Council. Jeanne was also the first woman to give the commencement address at Attica Correctional Facility as a trustee with SUNY. Having spent most of her life in New York, Jeanne moved to Santa Barbara, California in 1994, where she lived until her death. Despite the distance, Jeanne traveled often to New York City and remained passionately bound to the furthering of the arts and the appreciation of culture in all its forms. In Santa Barbara, Jeanne became a patron of international music students at the Music Academy of the West, and spent countless hours enjoying their craft and encouraging their work. From New York to California, between galleries and gardens, Jeanne sought beauty and found it often. She continued to share that beauty with those around her. She was a treasure and inspiration to friends and family alike. She was caring and dedicated as a wife and mother. She imparted her love for the arts, travel, and the importance of education to all her children and grandchildren. In the words of her granddaughter, Kate O’Shaughnessy, “She held every person she ever

met with unconditional positive regard. She had the grace of a ballerina and the mind of a scholar.” Jeanne is survived by her children Tom Thayer, Gail Reagan, Susan Noble, and Ann Thayer, 10 grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren.
Ellen Irene Montgomery
8/5/1932 - 7/10/2021
Ellen-Irene Montgomery was born in Hilo, HI, on August 5, 1932, and peacefully died in Santa Barbara, CA on July 10, 2021, surrounded by loved ones. Raised on a beautiful sugar plantation along Hawaii Island’s Hamakua Coast, she later headed off to Punahou School in Honolulu. She next headed to Linfield College (McMinnville, OR) and graduated in Home Economics in Business in 1953. She was a proud member of the Lambda Lambda Sigma Sorority during those years. Upon graduating, she returned to her beloved Hawaii to begin a career on Kauai with the University of Hawaii. She next headed to Los Angeles to work for the Southern Counties Gas Company and within a year was transferred up to Santa Barbara as Home Service Director in 1955. She was often asked to help judge at the local county fairs in Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties which she greatly enjoyed. She met our father (Henry Jones) in the Santa Barbara Ski Club, soon married and began raising three children. Fond memories include spending summers with other
local families at the nearby beaches, ski trips to China Peak and camping trips to Yosemite National Park. A woman of faith, she raised her children at Carpinteria Community Church and later became a member of El Montecito Presbyterian Church. In addition to raising her own children, Ellen volunteered with Los Chiquitos, the Carpinteria auxiliary of the Children’s Home Society, and was often found assisting with Girl Scout troop projects. Additional careers she later enjoyed included working in the Trust Department at Crocker National Bank (1980s) and Santa Barbara Chamber of Commerce Visitor Center on Cabrillo Boulevard (1990s). She was so proud of representing and sharing her city with others passing through town. Her many passions included traveling throughout Asia, Europe, Morocco, most of the United States, and returning to Hawaii as often as possible to share her culture with her family. Living for close to 50 years on a hilltop overlooking Santa Barbara’s waterfront, the long-time family home offered many opportunities to garden, grow avocado and citrus trees, enjoy wildlife, and connect with other neighborhood families in a peaceful country setting. She was often found in her kitchen creating wonderful desserts and meals for family and friends including much of what was growing around her on the property. The holidays were especially enjoyable and celebrated wholeheartedly. Family pets were plentiful and (of course) treated like royalty. Ellen is survived by daughter Leslie Jones (John) of San Luis Obispo, son Ron Jones (Dennis)
of Solvang, Cousins Roger Hoyer (Tony), Roy Hoyer (Russell) and family friend Fred Di Pasquale along with many friends. Ellen was preceded in death by her son Warren Jones, her parents and beloved grandmother, father of her children Henry Jones and many dear friends including Jim and Betty Giusto, Nilo and Rosemarie Fanucchi, Marjorie Boyle, Jack Ostrander, Fritz Amacher, Carl Hamburger, dear friend Tom Edwards and many others. A special thank you to Kathy DeAlba and her many extended family members who were her long-time caregivers in her later years as she transitioned from living at home into assisted living and later to Villa Alamar Memory Care. We are also incredibly grateful for her compassionate doctors including Dr. Mesipam, Dr. Bourne, the wonderful aides at Villa Riviera Assisted Living (who cared for her for close to two years) and the entire team at Villa Alamar where she spent her final years. Her Hospice care team also offered compassionate care in her final years, and we thank them, as well. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Santa Barbara Humane Society, Santa Barbara Wildlife Care Network or Santa Barbara Rescue Mission. Mom was a true lover of animals and wildlife as well as someone who cared deeply for those less fortunate. Aloha ‘Oe (Farewell to thee…until we meet again)

Hal Conklin 1945-2021
PAUL WELLMAN FILE PHOTO
“Guess where I am?” he said, with that familiar endearing chuckle of his. “I’m at the Serenity House. I’ve come full circle.” The significance of Hal being at Serenity House, the beautiful hospice facility on the Mesa overlooking Santa Barbara, can’t be overstated. Serenity House was built at the site of the Community Environmental Council’s (CEC) headquarters, and a portion of that original CEC building is incorporated into the Serenity House complex as it stands today. Hal and I were CEC’s codirectors back in 1970, the year CEC was founded by a community galvanized by Santa Barbara’s momentous 1969 oil spill. Hal told me that he was about to exit this life from a place and an organization that was, in many respects, his birthplace in Santa Barbara. His call was a poignant one. I sensed it could be our last conversation. Sadly, it was. Born and raised in Oakland to a close-knit Armenian family, Hal attended UC Berkeley, where he graduated in sociology and psychology. In the Bay Area, Hal became connected with the famous Episcopal bishop James Pike and his author wife, Diane Kennedy. Pike died in a tragic accident only a year or so before Hal moved to Santa Barbara to assist Diane Kennedy Pike with one of the bishop’s publications. The Pikes’ friend Maryanne Mott, a founding CEC boardmember, introduced Hal to me in the spring of 1970, when the CEC’s Ecology Center was being set up at 15 West Anapamu. Maryanne thought Hal would be a good fit for our fledgling organization. My first impression of Hal was that he was polished, very well-dressed, had impeccable manners, and seemed to be competent. He exuded the kind of confi-
dence that made everything seem all right and in order. Nothing seemed to faze him. Little did I know then that Hal and I were on our way to becoming lifelong friends and colleagues. That first impression I’d had of him more than held up through the 50 years I knew him. Hal became known to thousands of Santa Barbarans through his time with the CEC, his 17 years as a city councilmember, and his short stint as mayor of Santa Barbara, and I consider that he was Santa Barbara’s greatest civic leader since Pearl Chase reigned over the city from the late 1920s to the 1970s. Like Ms. Chase, Hal’s public service interests were wide-ranging. Although his primary focus was the environment, his interests spread to the arts, historic preservation, community planning and development, and city governance. He was a recycling pioneer, a city councilmember, an esteemed mayor, head of the California League of Cities, a candidate to lead the National League of Cities, an executive with Southern California Edison, a leader in the upgrading of Santa Barbara’s train station, and most recently, a convenor of an effort to reiPITCHING IN: Hal Conklin was instrumental in setting up the Community Environmental Council’s first magine Santa Barbara’s recycling center for Santa Barbara.

CEC that Hal was a take-charge leader. Recycling was one of his earliest interests, and he quickly rose to a position of prominence at the state level with an organization he helped found — the California Resource Recovery Association, which exists to this day. He worked with the late businessman and civic leader Robert Klausner to create one of California’s first recycling centers located at the corner of Garden and Ortega that is now home to the Solstice organization. He helped start a recycling program at Vandenberg Air Force Base, a feat that required remarkable patience and ingenuity since it required many levels of approval from the Pentagon. One of Hal’s earliest civic accomplishments was his role in protecting the Santa Barbara waterfront from a massive proposed development by Southern Pacific Railroad and the Hyatt Corporation. To accomplish the daunting task, Hal and I worked together under the auspices of the Committee for Santa Barbara and in close collaboration with the legendary Selma Rubin, Robert Easton, and James Gildea. Hal was instrumental in organizing meetings and press conferences and setting forth strategies that ultimately tamed the development and gave us an expanded Chase Palm Park along Cabrillo Boulevard. Pivotal to waterfront protection and enhancement efforts was Hal’s singular leadership in preserving Stearns Wharf. The wharf was destined to be demolished after a devastating fire. Hal’s work kept that from happening. Working with the California Coastal Conservancy and other organizations, he secured funding to rebuild the wharf into the important public and commercial resource it is today. A plaque was placed on the wharf honoring Hal and his extraordinary achievement. Prior to serving on the City Council, Hal came before that body as an advocate for recycling and other programs. His ideas drew strong opposition from several councilmembers who were deeply conservative

obituaries John Hugh Mackay Jr 5/12/1927 - 6/23/2021
Hugh was born in Philadelphia to Edith McCurdy Mackay and John Hugh Mackay Sr, he had two older sisters Jean and Pat who predeceased him. Graduating from Germantown High School in 1945, Hugh was drafted into the Army and worked in the Separation Center at Pine Camp, Upper State New York typing discharges at the end of WW11. After his own discharge in 1947 Hugh attended The Franklyn School for Professional Arts in New York City on the GI bill and lived for a while on North Brother Island, commuting by ferry into the city. The Island was famous for providing the isolation needed for Mary Mallon, otherwise known as ‘Typhoid Mary’. Later Hugh lived with Dr and Mrs Luther Emmet Holt Jr, parents of his friend Arnold Holt. Hugh travelled with the Holts and various friends to Europe in 1950 where he remained after securing a job with the Marshal Plan in Paris. After a wonderful year immersing himself in French culture and language, he was transferred to Rome. There Hugh bought the first of many beloved cars, a Fiat Giardinetta, and explored Europe for another two years before acquiescing to his father, who felt he should return to the US and find a 20
‘proper job’! Returning to San Francisco, at first selling Olivetti typewriters, he was eventually hired by Frances Mihailoff and Mike Taylor at their design firm. In time Hugh met Dorothy and Harry Lawenda who had just opened ‘KneedlerFauchere’, which eventually became the iconic designer destination for new and legendary collections of luxury fabric, wall coverings, light fixtures, furniture and accessories, and he accepted their offer to manage the new Los Angeles showroom in 1955. Thus began a fulfilling career and great friendship with Dorothy and Harry, as they opened more showrooms in Denver, Portland and Seattle, which Hugh oversaw, eventually taking the title of President of Kneedler-Fauchere. Hugh was affectionately known by his family as ‘The Glue Man’ for keeping everything together at K-F and when he retired in 1995 he was known at home as ‘The Egg Man’ for the perfect poached eggs he made for us every Saturday and Sunday morning. Hugh was meticulous in the way he dressed and in everything he did, and as one of our friends said “Hugh Mackay is a class act and it’s all first”. He was a handsome, creative, thoughtful and very kind man, who was beloved by his family and many others. Hugh was happy to have moved to Santa Barbara in 1978, commuting to K-F in N Hollywood during the week, finally retiring in 1995 to our wonderful family home in Mission Canyon. He loved listen-

ing to classical music especially opera, attending CAMA concerts, plays at The Ensemble Theatre and like his Mother, Hugh had a green thumb, and always enjoyed growing things and he loved animals, especially dogs. He enjoyed welcoming and orienting the many foreign students he and Jill hosted and organized weekly lunches with a group of retired male friends. Every Saturday he could be found at the Farmers’ Market, buying sunflowers. Hugh loved Santa Barbara and he explored all the new construction sites around town, stopping for coffee at his favorite cafe on State Street, watching the passing parade and reading the NY Times. His wife Jill, daughter Holly, son Patrick, granddaughter Pico, her father Richard and Hugh’s nieces and nephews are mourning his loss, but grateful that he died peacefully with Jill holding his hand. Thank you to Doctors Michael Bordofsky and Eric Trautwein, and to the wonderful staff at Serenity House. In keeping with Hugh’s wishes, there will be no formal memorial service, but we will have a celebration of his long life at our home in San Roque at a later date. If anyone wishes to honor Hugh please make a donation to The Mental Wellness Centre at 617 Garden Street or to the VNA’s Serenity House at 930 Miramonte Dr.
Judith Scher 1939 - 2021
Judith Scher passed peacefully at Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital on June 24th, 2021. Born in New York City in 1939, Judith was the daughter of Abraham Geller, Supreme Court Judge of the City of NY and Dorothy Geller, Chairwoman of the United Jewish Appeal Women’s Division. She is predeceased by her sister, Susan Platt, artist and brother, Bruce Geller, writer and producer of Mannix and the original Mission Impossible TV series. She graduated from Columbia University and started her work life as an actress and model for TV commercials. She joked that with her illustrious family that her claim to fame was that she received an award as the original hand model for the “Let your fingers do the walking in the Yellow Pages” commercial. She lived in London during the 1970s where Judy sang in clubs and acted in lunch-time theater. As a composer and lyricist, she wrote three musicals, one produced as a showcase off Broadway. Jazz saxophone player, Illinois Jacquet, recorded one of her songs. Judy sang with Illinois at Ronnie Scott’s music Club in London. She then left the theater and became a book editor and occasional writer. She compiled and edited Transformation of the Heart, The Dharmic Chal-
lenge, Inspired Medicine and Let the Clock Run Wild as well as edited other people’s books and stories, the most recent The Black Wall of Silence by Father Paul Morrissey. When Judy moved to Santa Barbara, she briefly returned to TV by creating and producing with Derrick Curtis, as well as writing, Dare Kids to Dance. They aired five shows that were born out of Judy’s great passion for ballroom dancing. In Santa Barbara, and through spiritualism and dance, Judy forged a community of adoring friends. Judy traveled extensively with her second husband, Jack Scher. After 16 visits to India and Sathya Sai Baba, Judy shifted her life’s focus to service and spirituality. She worked in hospice as a Pastoral Care Assistant and Bereavement Coordinator, where she ran Bereavement groups and training. She was also a mediator for the Court in VA when she lived in Charlottesville. After years of seeking enlightenment, she described herself as “giving up the search to hope she had become love.” Towards the end, Judy described her life as “full and interesting” with a feeling of being “complete.” Judy is survived by her two loving daughters: Dorothy Geller and Batsheva Hayes, son-in-law Bill Hayes, as well as her two beloved grandchildren, Noah and Jyotie. Judy was a special, authentic, engaged and vital person, a dear friend to many, and a profoundly cherished and devoted mother and grandmother. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

and looked upon Hal’s interests in the environment with disdain. I remember one member in particular who berated him in public, but Hal endured that abuse, maintained his composure, and even smiled. In time, Hal’s views would come to prevail as the body politic shifted to make Santa Barbara one of the more progressive cities in California.
Hal’s City Council tenure and stint as mayor focused on trying to balance housing and commercial development as the city struggled to right-size itself through revisions in residential and commercial zoning. His vision of the city extended to cultivating the arts and culture. Hal used the phrase, “Santa Barbara’s downtown should invoke a sense of place, a sense of history, and a sense of celebration.” He considered encouragement of the arts and culture as integral to the city’s economic vitality. His commitment to the arts was demonstrated by his work in restoring The Granada Theatre and enhancing The Arlington Theatre by raising the money for its magnificent organ. He saw these restorations as critical

At one point, he argued before the CEC’s Board of Directors that their initiative to promote renewable energy by urging counties and cities to become utilityautonomous wasn’t feasible. He later acknowledged that he’d been wrong about that and that what became known as “community aggregation” was indeed viable. Following his retirement from Edison, Hal re-engaged in the political and cultural life of the city, pursuing his wide-ranging environmental interests, foremost of which was U.S.A. Green Communities, which he developed with his lifelong colleague and friend, Gary Petersen. ‘SENSE OF PLACE’: Hal Conklin loved the arts and theater, and how they enhanced life in In 2017, Hal ran again for mayor.

But the years had gone by, times had changed, and his name and achievements were no longer so well known. Though he lost, he took that loss in stride and moved solidly forward. As concerns over city leadership came to the fore over the past several years, he was recruited by community business leaders to form the Santa Barbara Leadership Team to guide an effort to reenvision the greatly distressed core of the downtown. Only his health crisis came between him and his abiding sense of civic purpose. In one of our talks during his illness, as health-compromised as he was, it was as if he saw no barrier to continuing his work.

Heroes Still Work Here UNCERTAINTY.
We watch Wuhan, New York, and Milan. Our colleagues record what they see as they care for patients. Overwhelmed. We do not know how to treat this new novel COVID infection. Is it aerosol or droplet? We know it is coming. Tents go up outside the emergency department. People are scared. Testing is scarce. Results take days to come back. Scrambling for N95 masks, face shields, and PPE. Stripping down soiled scrubs outside after a long shift. Did I catch it from a patient today? Will I bring COVID home to my family? School closed. Social pods. Nobody wants the son of the doctor and nurse in their playgroup (except other health-care workers). Toddler temper tantrums. Social isolation. We start to see cases. First one. Then three. Then five. Patients are sick. Confused. Scared. “Happy hypoxic,” with critically low blood oxygen. We put them on mechanical ventilators. We set up an iPad so families can say goodbye. No visitors allowed. We learn as we serve. Every day a new policy. Every day a new guideline. New research studies to review. The neighbors start to bang pots and pans in our honor. Heroes work here.
Summer 2020 ANOTHER SURGE.
More cases. ICU is filling up. Will we run out of ventilators or staff? We study our adversary. Read scientific journals. Learn best practice. Apply what others have learned. We learn to reuse N95 masks. We store them in paper bags for next shift. We get acne on our chins and bruises on our noses from wearing tight-fitting respirators all day, every day. We learn to do more with less. We don and doff PPE routinely. We rely on each other. Check each other’s PPE before entering room. Good to go. Lift each other up. We rally. We adapt. We overcome. We work in tents. In the ER. In the ICU. Wherever we are asked to serve. Staffing shortages. Colleagues out sick. Hiring freeze. Hours cut. Early retirements. Feeling fatigue, but we are strong. Our sacrifice is on public display. Banners outside the hospital. Signs in front of our homes. Heroes work here.

Heroes work here.
Summer 2021 REOPENING. NO MORE MASK MANDATE.
The Delta variant is lurking. More contagious. Concerning. Especially for the unvaccinated. We yearned for normal a year ago, and normal is here … crowded emergency departments, more 9-1-1 calls, full waiting rooms, takes months for clinic appointment. Accumulated traumatic experiences, unhealthy behavior, day drinking, sedentary lifestyle, substance abuse, limited access to healthcare, lack of medical screening services, job loss, economic hardship, uncertainty. Our health metrics show it. Our community is weary and sick. At our work, we are yelled at, spat at, threatened. I am sorry you had to wait to be seen. Others more critically ill cut in line. I am sorry you have been waiting for your medication. We have had a lot of ambulances arrive within the last 15 minutes. I am sorry you lost your job and cannot afford your insulin, and now need dialysis. Can I get you a warm blanket?
I am sorry you stopped your chemotherapy last year out of fear of catching COVID, and now the cancer has spread. I am sorry your son overdosed on opiates. We will bring you back to see him as soon as we can. I am sorry we could not meet your expectations. I am sorry your health insurance will not cover your outpatient MRI. Please do not yell at our staff demanding it be done emergently. I am sorry that you are struggling and self-medicating with alcohol, but please do not urinate on the floor. I am sorry you are having an anxiety attack while you wait to be seen; we are cleaning a room for you now; please do not spit at our staff. I am sorry you are having a bad reaction to methamphetamines; please do not punch our staff. I am sorry it has been a horrible 18 months, but please be kind. We are doing our best. I am sorry. We are sorry. We don’t feel heroic anymore. Like you, we are tired, stressed, exhausted. Like you, we have missed graduations, birthdays, weddings, vacations, holidays, funerals. We crave live music, crowded theaters, travel, hugs from strangers, a pint with a friend, and the kinship of together. During your darkest hour, we promise we will take excellent care you of you and your family. We will do it with professionalism, compassion, and grace. Heroes still work here. Thank you to our health-care workers, first responders, firefighters, EMTs, law enforcement, mental health providers, social workers, and public servants. It is an honor to serve our community alongside you.

THE DEVIL YOU KNOW’S GOLETA CONNECTION EILEEN HORNE CO-AUTHORS BEST-SELLER-TO-BE ABOUT EVIL WITH FORENSIC PSYCHIATRIST GWEN ADSHEAD
by Matt Kettmann
ver thought you’d feel compassion for child molesters? Or cheer
for a mother to succeed on her third baby after intentionally injuring her first two? Or blame dysfunctional societal systems for breeding serial killers? Prepare for these reactions and more when reading The Devil You Know: Stories of Human Cruelty and Compassion, a journey through the case files and fascinating life of Dr. Gwen Adshead, a forensic psychiatrist famous in England. To translate what she’s learned over the course of her career into an engaging book appropriate for a general audience, Adshead teamed up with her friend, writer Eileen Horne, who was raised in Goleta; built her professional life as a TV producer, radio dramatist, and nonfiction author in London; and now lives across the cul-de-sac from me in her late father’s home. “Gwen has always been my most interesting friend,” Horne told me a few weeks ago over tea and cof coffee in her living room, explaining that she’s suggested that Adshead tell her stories to a wider audience for years. “No offense to all of my other friends— and even though my brother is an astrophysicist and my daughter is a political speech writer, she always took the cake!” Featuring 11 core chapters based on characters who represent a carefully constructed conglomerate of real-life patients and cases, the book puts readers in the passenger seat as Adshead drives through psychological mazes in search of what causes these people to resort to violence. Ostensibly a study of evil and its triggers, The Devil You Know winds up serving as a vaccine of sorts against the pervasively popular notion that evil people are born that way. “Serial killers don’t spring up fully formed, like monsters screaming out of the dark in some movie,” explained Horne. “They were once children like you and me. So what happens to them, and what can we do to stop it?”
orne’s own childhood in Goleta was pretty normal. Born into a
family of six siblings, she attended Foothill Elementary and La Colina Junior High before moving to the East Coast and then Italy as a teenager, when her stepfather, an engineer for Raytheon, started consulting for the country. “It was life changing,” said Horne, who still owns a home in Umbria and speaks with a more regal lilt than most Californians. She came back for two years to attend UCSB, primarily to study under renowned Shakespeare expert Homer “Murph” Swander. “He was kind of a hero around here,” she said. But she finished her last two years at the University of London. “I felt more at home on that side of the Atlantic, and I still do,” said Horne. “I consider myself based with one foot here and one foot in Europe.” Her desire to direct theater fizzled when she realized that television reached so many more people, and

GOLETA TO LONDON AND BACK: Eileen Horne grew up in Goleta but moved to Italy as a teenager, which sparked a love for Europe. She eventually settled in London, becoming a TV producer before turning back to writing. she found work as a producer of dramas, thrillers, and other shows for BBC and other major channels for 20 years. In her early forties, Horne sold her production company in order to pursue her true passion of writing. “I never stopped being a writer at heart,” she said, explaining why she decided to pursue an MFA in creative nonfiction writing at the University of London. “I wanted to make a change in life and do what I wanted to do.” She co-authored a book called The Pitch, teaching other content creators about how to sell stories, and then Zola and the Victorians: Censorship in the Age of Hypocrisy, about the 1888 obscenity trial over French author Émile Zola. Horne also writes audio dramas for Radio 4, penning more than a dozen of them over the years, including one about a fictional forensic psychiatrist. That, of course, is based largely on her friend Dr. Adshead and was the first project that emerged from their ongoing collaboration. The second is The Devil You Know, which was first published by Faber & Faber in the United Kingdom in June and hits American shelves on July 20 with Simon & Schuster as publisher. It’s already netting rave reviews, major media attention, and strong sales.

But she was very wary of profiting from other people’s pain and bound by confidentiality rules to protect her patients and their victims. “What if you tell me about 10 and we weave that into one person who’s a composite?” Horne asked. “That gave her room. She wasn’t stuck just telling one person’s story. And it allowed us to do something that was attractive to a wider audience.” Their book proposal led to a massive bidding war between 14 publishers in 2018, with a dozen other countries wanting to publish in their native languages. “Suddenly we had this big book on our hands,” said Horne. Did that freak her out? “I like a challenge,” she said. “I wasn’t nervous, but I was aware that it would be a big task.”

Friends and family, meanwhile, worried whether spending the next two years “in the company of serial killers and rapists and stalkers” would cause Horne her own psychological issues. “Mostly, I just felt sad,” she said of the research and writing process. “My appetite for crime fiction, which has always been high, declined. I really wanted to watch SNL and comedy programs.” Working closely with Adshead certainly helped. Horne was very careful not to make anything up and to stick strictly to facts when compiling each chapter into what she calls a “mosaic portrait.” She changed details to mask actual crimes — locations, weapons used, offenders’ countries of origin, etc. — but she did not want to know anything about the real patients’ appearances. “I asked Gwen not to describe anyone to me physically,” she said. “The only thing that I made up is what they looked like, so no patient could ever say that they recognized themselves physically.” While the book draws from hundreds, perhaps thousands of clinical experiences, each chapter is a little different in terms of cases considered. The one about a female stalker follows a few storylines more closely, while another relies on as many as 50 different sources to paint the picture. That’s a little hard to imagine, but rest assured that each chapter follows a fluid narrative of Adshead meeting and treating a single patient, building toward conclusions that are sometimes happy and sometimes tragic. “It’s a real act of weaving that goes on, but when we write anything, you always bring something of yourself,” said Horne of this process. When Adshead’s sister read an early draft, she opined, “You’ve captured Gwen’s voice perfectly, but I also hear yours throughout.” Horne was pleased, explaining, “I thought that was a compliment.”

he approached the end of his life. But her stepmom, Mary Jane Blau, who frequently baked our family cookies, died first that November while trimming her rose bushes. Jude followed three days later, and then Horne’s mother, Frances Colborn, who lived in Northern California, died suddenly the next year. “It was like dominoes falling,” said Horne. “It was pretty terrible.” Out of nowhere, Eileen’s husband, Greg Horne, who is originally from Australia, was offered a job in California. “The stars were aligning — clearly, we were meant to be here,” recalled Eileen. She thought they’d stay a year, but it’s been nearly five. She’s especially excited to visit their home in Italy later this summer. “To me, that’s my real home, and we will certainly retire there,” she said. “But for the time being, we’re here.”
ight now, Horne is
working the author publicity circuit, writing pieces for newspapers and magazines and enduring interviews about the book for radio and television programs. Many, including myself, wonder if the desired effect of The Devil You Know was to make us feel bad for violent
C OV E R S T O R Y criminals, which could easily be construed by tough-on-crime proponents as a Pollyanna-ish outlook. “Radical empathy isn’t sympathy,” said Horne of what she hopes the book helps breed instead. “It isn’t about feeling sorry for these murderers. Radical empathy is making a leap that allows you to walk beside someone as they piece together the disjointed fragments of their lives and why they did what they did, but with some detachment.

hen Massachusetts-based author Peter
Zheutlin discovered that a long-lost aunt played an integral role in elevating the popularity of bicycling around the end of the 19th century, he decided to tell her story. In so doing, Zheutlin is educating the world about his great-great-aunt Annie Cohen Kopchovsky, aka Annie Londonderry, who embarked on a round-the-world bicycling trip with a well-publicized stop in Santa Barbara on May 15, 1895. He published a nonfiction account, Around the World on Two Wheels: Annie Londonderry’s Extraordinary Ride in 2007 and this year fictionalized the saga in Spin: A Novel Based on a (Mostly) True Story.

by Matt Kettmann Aside from Londonderry’s amazing life story, Zheutlin’s books highlight how critical bicycling became to liberating women from traditional housebound existence, empowering suffrage, feminism, and personal freedom along the way. He tells us more about the book below. For a longer interview, see independent.com/ books.
Why were bicycles critical to women’s freedom? The bicycle truly revolutionized the lives of women around the turn of the 20th century. It gave them a mobility they never had before, there was a feeling of physical liberation and freedom that came with gliding about on a bicycle, and practicality demanded clothing more suitable to riding than long skirts and corsets, and so women started wearing bloomers to ride. Annie herself underwent a complete transformation in her dress as she made her way around the world, starting in long skirts and a tightly tailored waistcoat, but by the end, she was wearing a man’s riding outfit, including pants. She really challenged Victorian notions of female propriety. The bicycle became a tool of empowerment and a symbol of the women’s suffrage movement. As Susan B. Anthony once said, “Bicycling has done more to emancipate women than anything else in the world.” Tell us more about her visit to Santa Barbara. Annie arrived in San Francisco from Japan aboard a steamer in March 1985. Accompanied by a prominent cyclist from S.F. named Mark Johnson, she spent a leisurely six weeks riding from San Francisco to Los Angeles, arriving in Santa Barbara on the night of May 13, 1895. A major bicycle racing event was scheduled in the city for May 15, which the Santa Barbara Daily Independent
predicted would be “the biggest day in wheelmen’s circles that Santa Barbara ever saw.” Annie was on hand; one reporter noted how tanned she was. She was quite famous by this time and an attraction in her own right, so the race organizers invited her to ride several times past the grandstand. She disappointed some, however, by declining to participate in a timed sprint, as she had and would occasionally do in other cities. But the Independent was generous about her refusal to race, saying “nothing less than the Earth” would suit Annie for a course. “She came on the grandstand after giving her exhibition,” reported the Independent, “and gave a short lecture, in which she told of leaving Boston without a cent and bloomers made of paper … she described her route around the world, told of being present at one of the big oriental battles [a reference to the Sino-Japanese War—Ed.] ..." Some of this was made up, as Annie was all about spinning a good yarn and enthralling audiences. It’s fair to say that my new book about her, Spin, which is a work of historical fiction, is about a woman who wrote her own historical fiction in real time.
What do you hope readers learn from your book? Annie’s story tells us so much about the 1890s, about the way the bicycle dramatically changed the lives of women, about the constricted lives women were expected to live, about the journalism of the period, about the ways changes in communications and transportation technology was making the world a “smaller” place. Though she was a flawed person whose decisions, especially her decision to disappear from the lives of her young children, were sometimes harsh and selfindulgent, she was nevertheless a woman of boundless moxie who colored way outside the lines. And as the cliché goes, well-behaved women rarely make history. She was an anonymous Jewish housewife and mother living in a Boston tenement and very unhappy with her lot in life. By dint of sheer chutzpah and a boundless imagination, within 15 months she had turned herself into a global celebrity albeit under an assumed name, Annie Londonderry, a name that was borrowed from the Londonderry Lithia Spring Water Co. of New Hampshire, the first of many advertisers who purchased space on her bike and her body. She took a new name and invented an entirely new persona, a quintessentially American thing to do.

than curling up and getting sucked into a good thriller? There’s something about pondering a mystery and putting the pieces together that lends itself to a quick summer read. That’s why, for July, the Indy Book Club— a partnership between the Independent and the Santa Barbara Public Library — is focusing on the genre. Our featured book, Eight Perfect Murders by Peter Swanson, stars unreliable narrator and bookstore owner Malcolm Kershaw, who’s contacted by the FBI regarding a series of murders that mimic classic novels. Let’s stop there before any required spoiler alerts. After zooming through Eight Perfect Murders, I decided to go deeper and picked up Bluebird, Bluebird by Attica Locke. It’s the first in a series about Black Texas Ranger Darren Mathews, who investigates crimes against the Black community in the South. Bluebird, Bluebird is a page-turning and atmospheric novel that examines systemic racism in the criminal justice system. Next on my list of thrillers is The Guest List by Lucy Foley. I’m excited to discuss all of these thrillers and more with you during our live (!) Indy Book Club discussed at Municipal Winemakers on Wednesday, August 11, at 6 p.m. Come have a glass of wine or whatever and talk about this month’s recommendation and other authors and books.

dren’s book? These female authors from Santa Barbara cover it all in their recent books. Read extended interviews with each of them at independent.com/books.
PEGGY O’TOOLE LAMB’S DARLING: LETTERS FROM WWII Darling: Letters from WWII is the second time that author Peggy O’Toole Lamb turned to her family’s correspondence to tell a dramatic true tale. The first was her debut book, Then I Won’t Seem So Far Away, a memoir of hitchhiking across Europe in the 1970s based on letters she sent to her mother. Darling, meanwhile, concerns the letters that her uncle First Lieutenant Frank J. Foster sent to his wife while commanding an anti-aircraft battalion in defense of General Patton against the Nazis. “Letters are written in the present and have a sense of urgency and the unknown. Reading my uncle Frank’s letters from WWII gives me a window into the past and his mind,” she explained. “After writing Frank’s story, I felt closer to him and his friends, almost as if I lived through the war with them. I made myself cry and laugh while writing, and I fell in love with the characters.” O’Toole Lamb is now working on a book about her husband’s heart transplant surgery six years ago, called Change of Heart.
CYNTHIA HAMILTON’S HOUSES OF DECEPTION “I have a terrible illness to thank for my writing career,” said Cynthia Hamilton, who released the sixth book of her Madeline Dawkins mystery series on July 20. While enduring nine years of diagnosing what was eventually labeled latestage Lyme disease, Hamilton left the mortgage industry to focus on writing. “[That] allowed me to get out of my body for periods of time and up into my head, away from the constant pain,” she explained. Setting her novels in Santa Barbara, which is where the latest book, Houses of Deception, takes

place, makes it fun for resident readers to enjoy. “Local readers tell me how much they enjoy reading about fictional events that take place in settings they are familiar with,” she explained. “The fact that the stories are set in Santa Barbara will interest readers who haven’t already been introduced to the series.” She’s also been fascinated with the “charlatans” who pass through town and is focusing on a few of them in her next Madeline Dawkins book, Other People’s Money. See severnriverpublishing.com.
KATHLEEN KLAWITTER’S DIRECT HIT Kathleen Klawitter’s life as a professional golfer was destroyed when she was struck in the head by an errant golf ball in 1998, causing a traumatic brain injury. She recovered with the help of a neuropsychologist in Santa Barbara and became a fixture during social events at Jodi House, where she now serves as an ambassador. Klawitter began writing her memoir in Cork Milner’s writing class at the Schott Center almost 20 years ago, and last year, she finally finished Direct Hit: A Golf Pro’s Remarkable Journey Back from Traumatic Brain Injury. “I was told that my brain injury was permanent and therefore, everything I experienced, everything I couldn’t do, would probably stay that way,” said Klawitter. “But here’s what I learned about the brain: It is magnificent, resilient, and changeable! No matter what others tell you is permanent, or what you tell yourself is permanent, you can change it.” The book dives into a spiritual side of Klawitter finding her lifeforce. “You just have to surrender and allow the space for it to appear,” she said. “It took an errant speeding golf ball to stop me in my tracks, and for me to deepen into the silence.” See kathleenklawitter.com.
COLLEEN MCCARTHY-EVANS’S WHY AM I The creative life of Colleen McCarthy-Evans runs from improv theater and charter schools to board games and, most recently, writing and illustrating children’s books. Her latest is Why Am I, a book about big questions illustrated by Sarah Dietz of Germany. The book, which was named the “Book of the Year” by Creative Child Magazine, was published by Seven Seas Press, a three-year-old, Santa Barbara–based nonprofit that’s already raised $15,000 and donated more than 800 English and bilingual books. “I imagined different characters offering that question, ‘Why Am I?’ to the sky, and what the sky
might reply,” explained McCarthy-Evans. “The book guides readers on a meandering walk through a dreamy day, beginning in the dewy dawn, and ending with a dance by moonlight. Lovable characters remind us that we’re all precious, even if for the simple reason that we exist.” Dietz’s playful illustrations give a spirit to that sentiment. The underlying message? “I hope we can all be easier on ourselves and each other and remember that just by being ourselves we offer something of value to the world— and we are chock-full of potential in every moment!” See sevenseaspress.org. n
RECENT BOOKS FROM
SANTA BARBARA AUTHORS Find links to all of the books mentioned at independent.com/books. Longtime ER physician Dr. Angel Iscovich, who also owns Stag Canyon Vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley, just published his new self-help book, The Art of Routine: How Routineology Can Transform Your Life. Dr. I, as he’s known, shares techniques about finding respite from our digital world through organizational techniques. See angeliscovich.com. Carpinteria resident Jeff Arch, who was the screenwriter behind Sleepless in Seattle, released his debut novel in May. Called Attachments: A Novel, it goes back to his Pennsylvania roots to cover the plight of three former boarding-school students as they try to navigate decades-old betrayals that may affect the current dean’s son. With the endorsement of Chicken Soup for the Soul star Jack Canfield, author Nicole Black explores the unbreakable bonds between father and daughter in her novel I Can Still Hear You, in which the protagonist continues to get guidance from her dad beyond his grave while on a scavenger hunt through Maui. The book won a bronze from the 2021 Independent Publisher Book Awards. On Instagram @WriterNicoleB. Retired art and special education teacher John Houchin, who was also once president of the S.B. Teachers Association, penned Entranced: My Travels in Bali in the 1970s, which features other locally famous names such as artist Jack Baker and philanthropist Caroline Green. Houchin moved to Maine two years ago but still considers himself an S.B. local since he spent 47 years here.

Scott Addeo Young adds his name to the long list of S.B.-based mystery authors with the publishing of his book The Redhead in the Cove. It concerns a teenager kayaker who finds the dead body of a nurse outside of the San Francisco Giants baseball stadium, leading detective Johnny Lynch and PI Steve Lombardi in a cross-country search. Former Catholic school teacher and history fanatic Christian Clifford recently walked through Santa Barbara on his quest to walk 800 miles, see all 21 California missions, and get a better understanding of what life was like for the region’s first Catholics. He just put that adventure into a book called Pilgrimage: In Search of the Real California Missions. See missions1769.com. n

fast non-smoker, Rotman needed a way to medicate her Crohn’s disease that would allow her to experience the positive effects of both CBD and THC in predictable, repeatable doses. After extensive research and her own trial and error with other products on the market, the result for consumers is Wellfounded Botanicals, a line of holistic care products crafted for wellness seekers and cannabis connoisseurs alike. The first product to launch is a line of three tinctures (Rotman’s preferred vehicle for achieving the therapeutic benefits she sought), each containing carefully measured doses of THC and CBD suspended in safflower oil and flavored with sweet pomegranate, with additional products including capsules and topicals to follow very soon. At a recent pop-up outside the Farmacy in Santa Barbara, Rotman answered questions about the three formulations and the intentions behind the choices she made in creating the Wellfounded line. Your three products all come in 30 ml dropper bottles, but each one combines THC and CBD in a different ratio. Can you take us through what went into these decisions? One of the things that was really important for me when we created these products was to give people a sufficient amount of medicine in the bottle. As a habitual user to treat my Crohn’s disease, these are the medicines that really make my life possible, and sometimes other products just don’t have enough. The other thing that’s really important is that we’re able to give each customer a way to customize their own therapy and their own system of wellness. So we offer three ratios. We have our 20 to one, which is
20 times CBD to one time THC; and we have a one to one, which is an equal balance. And then we have our one to five, which is our high THC ratio. What we try to do with all of the ratios is make sure that we have about 1,200 cannabinoids in every single 30 ml bottle. That’s our hero product. This is the thing that I use all day every day to keep myself healthy and in remission. What’s the logic behind the different ratios? Broadly speaking, THC is for pain relief, and CBD is for anti-inflammation. Of course, THC has psychotropic effects, and for some people, myself included, high levels of THC are sometimes challenging, so we wanted to make sure that we have an all-day-everyday formula. For us, that’s “Restore,” which is our 20 CBD to one THC ratio. That’s the thing that I use the most to treat my condition. If I need a little bit of help sleeping or I’m feeling anxious, the one to one ratio, “Relief,” is a great option. It offers a little bit more pain reduction, it’s a really great sleep aid, and it has a high volume of CBD. “Relax,” our one to five, is our high-THC product. It’s for people who are experiencing severe pain or who need a more powerful sleep aid, or who have a higher tolerance for THC. By having this full landscape of options available, I feel like we meet most patients’, or wellness seekers’, or even recreational users’ needs. These ratios help people customize a program that makes sense for them, and that’s really important to us. These are “farm to tincture” products. Could you talk about that aspect of your business? Yes. A huge point of difference for us is the farm. That separates us from most of the tincture brands on the market today. We grow all of our own cannabis, and we harvest it fresh and freeze it immediately. Because we grow it ourselves, we’re able to manage and maintain the kind of genetics that we think are going to make the perfect ingredients for this line of products. The quality of the plant has always been our main differentiator, and that’s as true of the tinctures as it is of the flowers.
Wellfounded tinctures are available at the Farmacy in Santa Barbara. For more information, visit wellfounded.com.

Living in the Layers I
t was a time of uncovering. The earth was giving up its secrets. In northeastern China, scientists were examining an unearthed skull believed to represent a separate human group, long extinct, that lived in East Asia at least 146,000 years ago. More heartbreaking, horrifying, and recent, 751 unmarked graves of Indigenous people, mostly children, had been found at what was once a residential school in Saskatchewan, Canada. Meanwhile, in Florida, rescue workers were digging for victims beneath the rubble of a crumbled building whose sudden collapse might itself be indicative of rising water tables wrought by climate change, warnings ignored, and wisdom disregarded.
The Truths Unearthed from a Global Pandemic by Cynthia Carbone Ward Here in Gaviota, the earth was dry, and the green grass of spring had given way to brittle stalks the color of straw. I pressed my finger deep into the soil of the toyon seedlings I was tending in pots, and I knew it was time to soak their thirsty roots. At the shore, we came upon a large chunk of coal, most certainly from the cargo of the four-masted ship called the Gosford that was on its way to San Francisco from Liverpool in November of 1893 when it caught fire and attempted to anchor at Cojo; the coal that tumbled into the sea still turns up on local beaches to this day. On a different walk, there appeared a strand of fossilized whale vertebrae embedded for millennia in rock. Friends discovered an old copper penny wedged tightly and deliberately into a crack in a backcountry boulder, yet another example of story fragments materializing. And while carrying buckets of water to the oak saplings, I looked down and beheld the newly shed skin of a rattlesnake on the trail, silvery and translucent, just beyond my step, and realized that even surfaces were speaking. The casting away of that which is no longer useful implies renewal, but we must be willing to understand. We look and look again, more deeply. As Stanley
Kunitz’s nimbus-clouded voice directed, we must live in the layers, not on the litter, as we write our book of transformations. It’s a multi-mantled world, and we have seldom glimpsed the bedrock; instead, we teeter at the top, plodding along plane to plane, deficient in dimensions, short on imagination, insufficiently schooled. Even on a personal level, there have been findings. I came upon two letters at the bottom of a shoebox, one by my father, written when he was a young boy, nearly a century ago. He was writing to his own father, who was on the road, retrieving mail at a general delivery address in Kansas City. “Dearest Father,” it began. “Did you forget your son all of a sudden?” The other letter was written by my mother to my father in 1946, in her very best penmanship, from a home for unwed mothers: “Believe me, my darling, I can’t wait to see you again.” I felt the heat of the yearning in these letters, the heartache of what was unspoken, the weight of things I knew were yet to come. Too many tears in this deepness. “Every story begins inside a story that’s already begun by others,” wrote poet Richard Blanco. “Long before we take our first breath, there’s a plot underway, with characters and a setting we did not choose, but which were chosen for us.” To the extent possible, I like knowing some of the tangibles of these stories we are born into. That’s part of living in the layers. But I also believe it is our duty then to try to write with love and decency what follows. I don’t want all the struggles to have been in vain. I’m not sure how to proceed with this grandiose aspiration, but it’s stitched into my being. I could not otherwise survive. And now we begin to emerge— tentatively, and at the risk of backsliding— from a global pandemic, and oh, what truths have been unearthed! In our standing still, we were forced to go deeper, to see what has been happening all along. It wasn’t even secret, but circumstances have illuminated and exacerbated and drawn lines that cannot be ignored. Questions emerge: Will we finally heed the exhortations of the past? Can tragedy somehow lead, in its meandering way, to learning? Will learning lead to betterment? The earth is speaking and painful truths revealed, but I am hopeful and resolved. I don’t know any other way to be. n

COSTA KITCHEN FOOD & DRINK
Balances Nostalgia and Newness
Chef Nathan Lingle Leads Mar Monte Hotel’s Signature Restaurant BY REBECCA HORRIGAN
tepping into Costa Kitchen & Bar, the Mar Monte
Hotel’s new signature restaurant along the Santa Barbara waterfront, I felt as though I had hopped on a plane and landed in Morocco. As the whitewashed brick ceiling, cozy sunflower-yellow velvet chairs, and vibrant wall art transported me to a radiant oasis, I took in the comforting ocean views of Cabrillo Boulevard that frame the space, casting the familiar beauty of East Beach in a new light.
“There’s a great balance between the history and nostalgia of it, and the newness of it,” Chef Nathan Lingle explained to me of his restaurant, which was part of a multimillion-dollar redesign of the Mar Monte under the Unbound Collection by Hyatt that elevated amenities yet retained the Spanish-influenced flourishes of the past. “I think the food and beverage kind of represent that as well.” 42
JULY 15, 2021
Lingle’s “Cal-Mediterranean” cuisine is just as stimulating as the atmosphere, blending tastes and textures from coastal Italy and the eastern Mediterranean while sourcing as much as he can from Santa Barbara farmers’ markets, fish markets, and even honey from the Central Coast. “Every Saturday, I go to the Ventura Fish Market,” said Lingle. “I’m really talking to a lot of the fishermen there and understanding what product is coming in.” The menu showcases his seafood passion. Case in point is the California King salmon, paired with watercress, pickled red onion, tzatziki, and summer squash latkes. My mouth still waters thinking about the Central Coast albacore crudo, lightly accented with cucumber, basil, Meyer lemon, and sunflower seeds. While Costa’s flavors and ambiance are bold, every dish is prepared and plated with tasteful delicacy under Lingle’s meticulous care. Honing his craft at the Culinary Institute of America and later at the Ritz-Carlton Resort in Naples, Florida, Lingle’s talents led him to positions at the Philadelphia’s Ritz-Carlton and L’Auberge Del Mar Resort. “A lot of our inspiration comes from our travels, things we’ve done in the past, and ingredients we see in the farmers’ markets,” Lingle explained. Take the lamb scallopini. The lamb is pounded thin, breaded, and fried, but the potential fried-meat heaviness is refreshingly offset by the accompanying zucchini-mint salad, with charred feta and smoked chile aioli. The dish was inspired both by his mother’s schnitzel recipe and the bounty of summer squash at the farmers’ market. “It’s kind of a nod to food that my mom would have made,” Lingle said. “There’s almost a kind of carpaccio salad with it. It goes really nicely with the crisp, thin scallopini of lamb. There are a lot of warm or hot components mixed in with cool components.”
Chilled saffron couscous salad mixed tableside with gems of caramelized onions, dried apricot, roasted lemon, Calabrian chile, almonds, and yogurt and the house-made flatbread with luscious muhammara beg to be shared and enjoyed alongside your entrées. As do their beverages. The delightful wine list sings of Santa Barbara County, boasting bright beauties such as Stolpman’s “Love You Bunches” sangiovese and Scar of the Sea’s chardonnay. Beers from Figueroa Mountain and Captain Fatty’s flow from the taps, and creative cocktails such as the Italian mojito with SelvaRey rum, Montenegro amaro, mint, orange, lemon, and soda start the evening on a festive note. Diners can taste the sweetness of our town in the creative seasonal dessert menu from pastry chef Alex Loretto, which features the eclectic sampling of dates from Flying Disc Ranch, or more classic endings, such as a California olive oil cake drizzled with brown butter caramel, basil-infused peaches, and caramelized white chocolate. Other inventive options include a crème fraîche cheesecake accented with “textures of strawberry,” which include actual strawberries, strawberry sauce, and even
bits of freeze-dried strawberries to create an exciting dessert experience. For such a prominent corner of our city, on an iconic boulevard near the zoo, East Beach, countless other hotels, and plenty of both Eastside and Montecito residents, there’s been quite a culinary hole in this location for years. Costa Kitchen & Bar is well poised to change that, as the whole menu is a tour de force for the senses. As we continued talking about his passion for Santa Barbara’s produce, seafood, and outdoorsy lifestyle, Lingle’s motivation seemed pure. “I really love telling stories through the food and beverage,” he explained.

Wharf had a soft opening last Saturday, serving a limited menu of coffee and pastries. Full service with a full menu begins this Friday, July 16. Known as one of the best breakfast and lunch spots in town, the eatery is located at 1 State Street, the former home of State Street Coffee, Due Lune Ristorante and Bar, Eladio’s, A&W Root Beer, and Sunny’s Hamburger Stand. Accompanying the building, which wraps around the corner of State Street and Cabrillo Boulevard, is a large outdoor patio overlooking Stearns Wharf and West Beach, and a full bar.

TURNPIKE RESTAURANT GROWTH: Hardly a day goes by
when I don’t receive an inquiry about all the construction at the Turnpike Center in Noleta, home to Vons, Rusty’s Pizza, Dave’s Dogs, and other businesses. Though the entire center is receiving a refresh, with wood exterior walls and bronze-colored roofs, particular attention has been paid to the southeast corner, which will be the future home of six new restaurants. One business will be a Dave’s Drip House ice cream shop (run by the founder of Dave’s Dogs), while another is a yet-to-be-announced restaurant by Chris Chiarappa, the visionary for Mesa Burger, Corner Tap, and other eateries. Play It Again Sports is moving across the parking lot to make room for one of the incoming dining establishments, taking over the space currently occupied by a hair salon, barbershop, and laundromat. The southeast corner of the Turnpike Center has been fully remodeled and now includes plantings, walkways, fountains, statues, and more. Electric vehicle chargers are planned.

Some of the seven may include The Kitchen commercial space (formerly Samy’s Camera), Augie’s Tequila Bar (formerly Left at Albuquerque), a restaurant coming to the Turnpike Center, and a rumored ice cream shop at 1826A Cliff Drive (formerly Santa Barbara Shabbat Services), next to The Cliff Room.

The restaurant is locally owned and operated by the Hardey family, which has run Jeannine’s Bakery since 1985. The iconic building is owned and managed by the Romasanta family, which has owned the Harbor View Inn and adjoining restaurant property since 1982. As difficult as it may be to find parking, it’s worth it for the view alone. “This is why we live here,” said co-owner Alison Hardey. “And in this space, in this spot, you really get to enjoy it because you’re not in the elements. You’re not in the wind, you’re not in the sand, yet you get the beauty of it.” The walls of the restaurant are adorned with numerous photos of the Hardey family. I asked about one photo of Alison’s parents, Eleanor and Gordon Hardey, who happened to be visiting the bakery while I was there, and was told that it was taken at a fraternity/sorority event at the Coral Casino in Montecito around 1950. All four Jeannine’s Bakeries are now open, though the upper State Street and Goleta locations are closed Mondays and Tuesdays until more staff is brought onboard. Their outlet at 15

ABSTRACTION MOVES FORWARD
“Sanctuary,” Katherine Chang Liu
“Snake Charmer,” Brad Ellis
For Connie Connally, that means noticing the way her move from representational portraiture — at which she excelled —to abstract landscape has unleashed her inner Monet and Kandinsky. Brad Ellis works in a multiplicity of styles that, taken together, signal the presence of a questing
ALEXANDRA RIORDEN’S ANGEL CITY RADIO
With Angel City Radio, Santa Barbara–based artist Alexandra Riorden has one of the summer’s strongest debuts. A sophisticated songwriter with expert support from an outstanding group of musicians, Riorden moves easily from slinky synth ballads to chamber pop and torchy twang. Lyrically, Riorden tells a personal story of trauma and healing that comes down strongly on the side of recovery and renewal. Haunted by memories of a violent incident, Riorden chases down her demons and sings around the campfire of their incineration. To get a sense of the breadth of the production and her talent, sample the first track, “Animals,” and the last one, “Angel City Radio (outro).” They have the same lyrics, but such radically different arrangements that you might need a moment to recognize the return. —CD

spirit, informed by art history yet working outside of any constraints imposed by historical expectations. Katherine Chang Liu’s elevated collage panels spring from the carefully crafted poetic titles she keeps in notebooks until they are ready to take pictorial form. Sammy Peters achieves his delightfully dry and sophisticated impact through adhering to certain idiosyncratic strictures of his own creation, such as “use colors that have no name,” “include something awkward in every painting,” and “mix the complex and the smooth.” David Bailin’s large drawing series “The Erasing” bears traces of portraiture, along with thousands of other things, including floor plans, elevations, and shadows. These half-erased fragments come together in the service of a complex ritual of grief and empathy toward the artist’s father, whose dementia and dying these monumental works document. Doug Trump, who occupies the other end of the spectrum when it comes to scale, nevertheless generates extraordinary drama within a smaller compass in his collage-based works. Jeri Ledbetter’s explosive concatenations of line and color index the presence of the body of a singular individual at a distinct moment in time. The eighth artist, Wosene Worke Kosrof, was brought in as a guest of the other seven. Kosrof, who exhibited at Sullivan Goss in 2020, represents a shining example of how abstract artists of the 21st century can create their own cultural traditions through individual practice. Based in Oakland, Kosrof ’s iconographic style draws equally on the Amharic script he learned as a boy in Ethiopia and on the modern jazz that echoes through his California studio. It’s an unforgettable combination that inspires others by example. —Charles Donelan

here’s a paradox to the relative status of different approaches to making art. For the individual artist, there’s no such thing as being too well known, but when it comes to an approach that’s succeeded for others, the perception that it’s been done before can steal your thunder. Take abstraction, for example. If you happened to be in the right place at the right time (not to mention of the right race and gender!), certain techniques of image-making earned you a permanent place not only in art history but also in the public consciousness. But miss that moment, even by a little, and it can be a different story. With the excellent new group show Towards a 21st Century Abstraction, on view at Westmont’s Ridley-Tree Museum of Art through August 14, eight American painters of varying backgrounds make a strong case for the aesthetic power of abstraction. Connie Connally, Jeri Ledbetter, Doug Trump, Brad Ellis, Wosene Worke Kosrof, Katherine Chang Liu, Sammy Peters, and David Bailin all carry on in recognizable modes that communicate effectively without having to depend on any narrowly defined creative lineage. They participate in a phenomenon that’s at once more venerable, more global, and more relevant than any one narrative can capture. Peter Frank, who helped put the show together and wrote an insightful essay for the catalog, characterizes the fresh look these artists deserve this way: “the durability of an idea or practice — and abstract art is both — depends not on the viability of arguments made on its behalf, or on its success dictating its own terms of reception, so much as on the vitality of its application to actual practice.”
EIGHT PAINTERS DEMONSTRATE THE VITALITY OF ABSTRACT ART AT WESTMONT
Maestro Larry Rachleff
MUSIC ACADEMY GALA AND OPENING CONCERT Maestro Larry Rachleff captured the astonishment of the moment at The Granada Theatre on Sunday afternoon when he looked out at the audience from the podium and exclaimed in mock surprise, “There’s people out there!” Yes, there were, and they were as surprised and delighted as he was to be experiencing the first live performance in the space since March 2020. This was the Sunday-matinee opening orchestral concert of the Music Academy of the West’s 2021 season, and it could not have been a more joyful experience. The program included Katie Abbott’s rambunctious contemporary fanfare, Punch, and two splendid works from the traditional repertoire, the Symphony No. 39 in E-flat Major, K. 543 of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Igor Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite in the composer’s 1919 arrangement. Ears unused to the complex delicacy of a live orchestra were ravished by the young players, who, as Rachleff pointed out, had not played as a group for more than a year and were working with less than a full week’s rehearsal through some very challenging and sophisticated material. The previous night saw guests dining under the stars at the Academy’s magnificent Miraflores campus, where introductions were made, music was performed, and faculty violist Richard O’Neill was honored with the Academy’s Distinguished Alumni Award. O’Neill has had quite a year. After being made a member of the Takács Quartet, he learned that his performance of the Concerto for Viola and Chamber Orchestra by contemporary composer Christopher Theofanidis was the 2020 Grammy winner for Best Classical Instrumental Solo. His heartfelt acceptance speech detailing the profound impact of the Music Academy and his mentor Donald McInnes on his early career was capped by a moving performance of Rachmaninoff’s cello sonata accompanied by Jeremy Denk. The season continues this week with an orchestral concert on July 17 led by Michael Tilson Thomas. —CD
FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny
doesn’t like to be parched. She wants to be like “a tree drinking the rain.” I think every Cancerian has similar dreams: to be steadily immersed in engrossing feelings, awash with intimate longings, flowing along in rhythm with the soul’s songs. The coming weeks will be prime time for you to relish these primal pleasures. It’s probably best to avoid an outright flood, but I think it’s wise to invite a cascade.
word “paradise” is derived from the ancient Persian word pairidaeza, meaning “walled garden.” For her, this association suggests that making promises and being faithful to our intentions are keys to creating happiness with those we care for. Paradise requires walls! To scrupulously cultivate freedom, we need discipline. If we hope to thrive in joyous self-expression, we must focus on specific goals. I bring these thoughts to your attention because now is a pivotal time to work on building, refining, and bolstering your own personal version of paradise.
ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): In his poem “Litany,” Aries poet Billy
Collins testifies that he is “the sound of rain on the roof.” He also claims to be “the moon in the trees, the paper blowing down an alley, the basket of chestnuts on the kitchen table, and the shooting star.” He does make it clear, however, that he is not “the bread and the knife” on the table, nor the “crystal goblet and the wine.” What about you, Aries? What are all the earthy and fiery phenomena that you are? Are you, as Billy Collins suggests, “the dew on the morning grass and the burning wheel of the sun and the marsh birds suddenly in flight”? Now would be an excellent time to dream up your own version of such colorful biographical details.
TAURUS (Apr. 20-May 20): “Why else keep a journal, if not to examine your own filth?” wrote poet Anne Sexton. And yes, Sexton did have a lot of filth to explore, including the physical abuse of her daughters. But most of us don’t need to focus so obsessively on our unlovely aspects. Keeping a journal can also be about identifying our ripening potentials and unused riches. This approach would be especially fun and wise for you Tauruses right now. The coming weeks will be an auspicious time for deep introspection that frees capacities and powers you have only partially activated up until now.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Journalist Sam Anderson marvels at
his young daughter’s project: a small plastic dome-like structure that houses a community of ladybugs. All they need to consume, for weeks at a time, are “two water-soaked raisins.” I don’t think you’ll need to be forever as efficient and hardy as those ladybugs, Gemini, but you may have to be like that temporarily. My advice? Don’t regard it as a hardship. Instead, see it as an opportunity to find out how exquisitely resourceful and resilient you can be. The skills you learn and refine now will be priceless in the long run.
WEEK OF JULY 15
(June 21-July 22): Cancerian poet Linda Hogan says she
(July 23-Aug. 22): Actor Lupita Nyong’o had a starring role
in Steve McQueen’s film 12 Years a Slave. She praised his directorial skills. She loved the fact that he told her, “Fail, and then fail better.” Why? “That kind of environment, where failure is an option, is magical,” she said. It allowed her to experiment freely, push herself beyond her previous limits, and focus on being true to the character she was playing rather than trying to be a “good actor.” I think these are excellent principles for you to keep in mind during the coming weeks.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Virgo-born Wayne Shorter is a legend-
ary jazz composer and saxophonist. He has been making music for more than 60 years, often with other legendary creators like Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock. The New York Times described Shorter as “jazz’s greatest living small-group composer and a contender for greatest living improviser.” Bass prodigy Tal Wilkenfeld, who is 53 years younger than Shorter, tells the story of a show she performed with him. Just before going on stage, Shorter came up to her, sensing she was nervous, and whispered some advice: “Play eternity.” Now I’m offering that same counsel to you as you carry out your tasks in the coming days. Be as timeless as you dare to be. Immerse yourself in the most expansive feelings you can imagine. Authorize your immortal soul to be in charge of everything you do.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Libran author Paula McLain says the
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Thousands of 28-pound bars of
24-carat gold are stored in the Bank of England’s underground vault. To gain entry to the treasure trove, bankers use metal keys that are three feet long. They must also utter a secret password into a microphone. According to my reading of the astrological omens, you Scorpios can now gain access to a more metaphorical but nevertheless substantial source of riches. How? The key is a particular scene in your imagination that has recently begun to coalesce. It is an emblem of a future triumph or breakthrough that you will accomplish. As for the password, which you will also need, it’s vigorous rigor.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Somehow, I have lived all these
years without ever coming across the rare English word “selcouth.” Today, as I meditated on the exotic astrological portents coming up for you, that word appeared — arriving on my phone via text message from my Sagittarius friend Lila. She told me, “I have a feeling that life is about to get intensely SELCOUTH for us Sagittarians.” I looked up the unfamiliar word and found these synonyms: unusual, marvelous, strange, magnificent, scarce, wondrous, weird, rare, and exotic. Those terms do indeed coincide with my interpretation of your immediate future. So Happy Selcouth to you, dear Centaur! Celebrate with awed appreciation!
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Lexicographer Jonathon Green pro-
vides us with the following 19th-century slang words for the sex act: horizontal refreshment, strumming, playing at romps, cully-shangie, taking a turn at Mount Pleasant, dancing the blanket hornpipe, honeyfugle, giving a hot poultice for the Irish toothache, and — my favorite — fandango de pokum. In accordance with astrological potentials, I recommend that you consider trying them all out in the next four weeks. In other words, experiment with shifting your approach to belly-bumping and libido-gratifying. If you don’t have a human partner, do it alone or with an angel or in your fantasy life.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): If a lover or spouse is perpetually
churning out fantasies of you in their imagination, they may be less than totally tuned in to the real you. Instead, they may be focused on the images they have of you — maybe so much so that they lose sight of who you genuinely are and what you are actually doing. The same possibility exists for other allies, not only lovers and spouses. They may be so entranced by their stories about you that they are out of touch with the ever-changing marvel you are. That’s the bad news, Aquarius. Here’s the good news: The coming weeks will be a decisive time to correct such distortions — and revel in the raw truth about you.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): Here’s how art critic Walter Pater char-
acterized the work of Piscean artist Michelangelo: “sweetness and strength, pleasure with surprise, an energy of conception which seems to break through all the conditions of comely form, recovering, touch by touch, a loveliness found usually only in the simplest natural things.” I’ve been waiting for the arrival of astrological aspects that would mean you’d be an embodiment of that description. And now they are here. Congrats! For the next 13 days, I will visualize you as a fount of ever-refreshing grace — as a fluid treasure that emanates refined beauty and wild innocence.
