ALL ABOUT TRASH Indy reporter (and Opinions section editor) Jean Yamamura — who wrote this week’s cover story about a new material recovery facility (MRF) at the Tajiguas landfill — got hooked on waste management when a copy of a journal by that very name landed on her desk many years ago. “I was amazed there was a whole scientific inquiry devoted to trash,” she said. When the MRF opened about as many years later, the story was kismet, or catnip, as the case may be.

TABLE of CONTENTS

volume 35, # 811, July 29-Aug. 5, 2021

What’s so cool about the MRF? This new facility is huge and full of complex machinery that just dwarfs you. It does a good number of positive things, including capturing and using methane, which is an intense greenhouse gas. With the climate acting so unpredictably this summer, it’s a good time to reduce it consistently. Why is this an important story? The road to getting recyclables sorted, sold, and made into something else is so tortured and controversial. The people I spoke with got really passionate about diverting the trash, what happens to it, and where it all comes from. I learned a lot about why recycling needs to be clean and dry to be resold, and why you can’t recycle the cardboard from a pizza box, but it can go into compost! What’s up with the photo of your boots? My trashed-out boots? I love to shop as much as the next person, but being at Tajiguas really makes you consider the “what’s left behind” aspect of a new pair of shoes.

CORONAVIRUS

‘A Pandemic of the Unvaccinated’ Ansorg Advises to Stop Acting as if COVID Crisis Were Over

T

by Jean Yamamura

he coronavirus epidemic is historic déjà vu all over again, with the state reporting more than 9,000 large outbreaks in 2021, even after vaccines were given in skilled nursing facilities, residential care facilities, hospitals, prisons, and shelters, much like what occurred in 2020. Santa Barbara County has eight active COVID outbreaks, including one involving 23 people at a school in Santa Barbara. All infection indicators are moving upward countywide, from a 400 percent higher case rate over the month to a 71 percent increase of patients in an ICU. Public Health is increasing its vaccination outreach, including bringing its mobile clinic to Acme Hospitality, a restaurant group aiming to vaccinate 100 percent of its workforce. Van Do-Reynoso, head of County Public Health, noted $40 million in CalVax grants were available for one month to community-based providers through Physicians for a Healthy California to promote

one-on-one conversations between doctors and patients about the vaccine to clear up any worries they had. This is all to get the attention of the 149,683 people in the county eligible for the vaccine who have yet to step up to get a shot. “We are now experiencing a pandemic of the unvaccinated,” said Dr. Henning Ansorg, the county’s health officer. “It is unnecessary and completely preventable.” Ansorg appealed to friends, family members, religious leaders, sports and entertainment stars, and other prominent individuals to urge people to get vaccinated. Nationally, infections are up 300 percent, prompting the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) on Tuesday to advise once again wearing face masks indoors, a step driven by the more infectious Delta variant, which is causing the new surge. The head of the CDC, Dr. Rochelle Walensky, said new reports indicated that vaccinated individuals transmitted the virus more frequently than previously thought.

California amped up its requirements and rhetoric one day earlier, making it mandatory for all state employees to show proof of vaccination starting August 2 or get ready to be tested weekly. Health-care workers and congregate-care employees had until August 23 for the same; hospital workers were advised to wear N95 masks, and other medical facility employees to wear surgical masks; the unvaccinated would be tested twice a week. Private businesses large and small were asked to consider the same. During the Monday morning announcement, Governor Gavin Newsom took the time to lambaste “the right-wing echo chamber that has been perpetuating misinformation around the vaccine and its efficacy and safety.” “It is inexcusable to make this pandemic into a show of ideology,” Ansorg said, who has been increasingly outspoken in recent weeks. Making the point a visual one, a new page at Public Health’s dashboard breaks out new cases by unvaccinated and vaccinated. The

A rally “for freedom” against public health mandates meant to curb the spread of COVID-19 was held 7/24, with a march from Stearns Wharf to De la Guerra Plaza. Organized by Stand Up Santa Barbara, the event was part of a Worldwide Rally for Freedom in more than 200 cities across the world. The group of around 100 was escorted up State Street by city police and could be heard chanting “My body, my choice!” and “Fire Dr. Fauci!” The CDC and County Public Health recommend masks be worn by everyone indoors and in crowded public settings with close contact with others who may not be vaccinated. The growing divide between faculty leaders and boardmembers at SBCC intensified during a 7/22 trustees meeting, as the college remains on the fence over a COVID-19 vaccination mandate. Supporters of the mandate argue that assured vaccination is the only way to welcome students back to campus without the threat of an outbreak that may send the school back into another lockdown, while opponents criticize what they call an “overreach” on bodily autonomy and medical freedom.

COMMUNITY COU RTESY

by Tyler Hayden t was early July, and Supervisor Das Williams was sitting in his office and going through his mail. As he read a letter from a state criminal justice agency, he let out a big “Woohoo!” “I think I startled some of my staff,” he remembered. The Board of State and Community Corrections (BSCC) had informed county leaders that, despite repeated statements to the contrary from their sheriff and staff, Santa Barbara was not legally obligated to renovate and add rated beds to its Main Jail as a condition of receiving $80 million in state funding to construct the new North County Jail. The renovation was expected to cost tens of millions of dollars, county money Williams has always said would be better spent on alternatives to incarceration. Parts of the aging campus do need to be renovated, he conceded, but not the entire 819-bed facility, especially with the 376-bed northern branch scheduled to come online this spring. Since the pandemic, Williams noted, Santa Barbara dropped its average jail population from more than 900 to under 600 without being overrun by crime. “This letter,” Williams said this week, “represents an enormous opportunity to look at what wings it makes sense to upgrade, and what wings to close permanently, to save us

KEYT reported 7/22 that the remains of 17-yearold Jack Cantin (above) have been discovered three and a half years after he was killed in the Montecito debris flow. Jack’s mother, Kimberly Cantin, said the remains were found approximately 1,000 yards from the family’s former home on Hot Springs Road. While the discovery was made in late May, the family waited to go public while a lab analysis confirmed the findings. In response to KEYT’s story, the Sheriff’s Office issued a statement that the case remains

members have broken down into various subcommittees—not subject to the Brown Act, which requires public access and attendance — to research such nuts-and-bolts matters as police oversight models, data analytics, and hiring and firing practices. Starting later this week, these subcommittees will begin reporting their findings to the whole commission, and those discussions will be subject to the Brown Act’s open government rules. “It took a lot for us to get here,” said commission chair Gabe Escobedo, alluding to how politically impossible such a commission was until the murder of George Floyd. “We need to stay engaged in the implementation process. That’s what’s going to determine if this is effective.” With City Administrator Paul Casey poised to step down in two months—and the commission dependent upon the City Administrator for funding — Tuesday’s presentation functioned as a preemptive vote of council support to whoever the council eventually appoints to replace Casey at the top job. —Nick Welsh

S.B. police have identified the elderly couple who on 7/9 died in what appeared to be a double suicide. The victims were Bernd Storch, 82, and Miyako Storch, 87. Both victims shot themselves in the head with their own gun in their Arbolado Road home.

Zachary Coughlin (above), the man behind the “Mirror Bus” seen around Isla Vista last year, was convicted 7/22 on 14 charges ranging from forcible rape to kidnapping with intent to commit rape. Coughlin was arrested in I.V. in May 2020 after multiple women filed complaints with the Sheriff’s Office and the UCSB Police Department that he was stalking and harassing them. During the investigation, detectives found multiple videos which appeared to depict Coughlin raping unconscious women. Coughlin is scheduled to be sentenced on 9/23. Full story at

On 7/26, a resident teenager reported what he believed to be a great white shark swimming near a buoy to the Hope Ranch Beach lifeguards. According to Jill Van Zeebroeck of the Hope Ranch Park Homes Association, they placed a sign informing beachgoers of a potential shark presence in the water. This comes with a recent increase of shark spotting in S.B., with five juvenile great white sharks seen close to the shore in Carpinteria on 6/12. Full story at independent.com/hope-ranchshark. n

Jail Cont’d from p.5 Brown insisted throughout the budget negotiations, during which his department’s annual allocation was increased by approximately $7 million, that Santa Barbara County needs at least 1,000 jail beds to maintain an acceptable level of public safety. Those beds shouldn’t always be filled, he explained in an interview this week, but it’s important to maintain the extra space in the event of arrest “surges” or other unexpected influxes. Jails, like hospitals, have an ideal operating capacity, he said, and the industry standards for lockups is 85 percent. In recent years, Brown has championed the jail’s anti-recidivism programs with notable success. He’s also supported alternative means of helping those in the throes of drug addiction or mental health crises. “Nobody wants more than I do to have alternatives to jail for mentally ill and drug-addicted people,” he said. “But you also need jail space for those people when they commit serious crimes.… You can have a carrot, but you also need jail as the stick.” Among those most opposed to the renovation has been Jeff Chambliss, a private defense attorney and president of the Santa Barbara Defenders association. To build a new jail at a total—and way over budget—cost of $120 million, on top of spending tens of millions more to upgrade the existing one, would not only run counter to evolving philosophies of criminal jus-

tice but also go squarely against local public opinion, he argued. In 2000 and 2010, Chambliss noted, Santa Barbara County voters were asked to increase the sales tax to pay for the new northern branch. In both cases, they soundly rejected the idea. The BSCC discrepancy wasn’t the first time the Sheriff ’s Office cited incorrect information to justify an overhaul of the main campus, Chambliss claimed. Last year, he said, the department attempted to use a legal settlement with Disability Rights California over ADA compliance at the campus to move the project forward. It was only when Chambliss and his group intervened, explaining to the supervisors in private meetings that the settlement did not, in fact, mandate a renovation, that the proposal was tabled. “They were pleasantly surprised,” he said. “They’d gotten another bad fact.” “I think the board is not getting good information from their staff, and the sheriff is looking for justifications to fund this renovation without putting it to a public vote,” continued Chambliss, suggesting a ballot measure is the only responsible way to determine if jail additions and improvements are how county residents truly want to spend their money. “I think there are a lot of people out there who would be against this,” he predicted, “or at least want more transparency in the process.” The supervisors are expected to revisit the issue later this summer. n

Unvaccinated Cont’d from p. 5 rate of illness was five times greater for the unvaccinated; the data for July 20 showed a 7.6 unvaccinated case rate per 100,000 residents and 1.1 among the vaccinated. Of the number of breakthrough infections, Ansorg stated they did not end up in the hospital. The lack of a vaccination caused the death on July 23 of a young Santa Marian between the ages of 18 and 29 who was otherwise healthy. Ansorg called it one of the saddest cases in all this time: “Our hearts go out to the family and to the friends of this young person who died completely unnecessarily,” he said. Andy Caldwell has led a conservative business and agriculture group based in Santa Maria for about 30 years and often criticizes Public Health’s efforts at Board of Supervisor meetings. He said he would not tell anyone to get or not get the vaccine as he is not a doctor, but he had a profound difference with officials over the lack of discussion of issues like the potential for vaccine injury, small though it might be, he added. He questioned why vaccine manufacturers received full immunity for their product; when it came to mRNA vaccines, he believed it was experimental technology. And it’s true; mRNA vaccines have yet to be fully sanctioned by the Food and Drug Administration; the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are on an emergency-use authori-

zation, and their approval would be a first. Resistance to vaccines is nothing new. The first vaccine, pus from a cowpox blister slid into a cut in the skin to protect against smallpox in England in the late 18th century, was viewed as contamination of a healthy body. When smallpox vaccines were mandated at the turn of the 20th century, some western states banned them outright, said Elena Conis, a historian of medicine and public health at UC Berkeley. Even in states that adopted the mandate, half the legislatures and public opposed them. “We’re just repeating history all over again today,” she said. Making a difference had been the school mandate for students, though resistance grew as the number of vaccinations increased. In 2019, 96.7 percent of kindergartners in the county had all the required immunizations. Ansorg had a warning: “We all have been behaving as if the pandemic was over. That is absolutely not the case.” The county was back at the brink of shutdowns as in the purple tier and needed once again to avoid crowds, reduce travel, wear masks indoors, and, most importantly, he said, motivate others to get vaccinated. “Instead of lamenting about Public Health recommendations and perceived restrictions,” said Ansorg, “we need to take responsibility for ourselves, our neighbors, and our loved ones.” n

You Can Lead a Dog to Water

BRING BACK THE CHADOR: Telling someone they’re stupid, I have discovered after a lifetime of trying, rarely works.

Even if it’s true. Especially if it’s true. Calling this to mind is the stubborn recalcitrance on the part of umpteen million Americans who insist on cutting off our collective noses to spite their faces by not getting vaccinated. Don’t they get the math? Take the vaccine and drastically reduce your odds of getting infected. Don’t take the vaccine and drastically increase the odds of dying. Many people, it seems, have weighed the odds and come to different conclusions. They’d much rather run the risk of getting infected and having a breathing tube rammed down their throats than get the vaccination and endure the real but tiny chance of anaphylactic shock. I get it. We all have friends who ate the shrimp who shouldn’t have. Naturally, it’s slightly more complicated. Studies have shown repeating the same message doesn’t actually work if it doesn’t get through the first time. Nor does it help to have cheerful strangers knock on your doors. When was the last time you welcomed into your home the young, black-tied missionaries knocking on your door wanting to discuss the Book of Mormon? It’s not necessarily the message that sucks. It’s the organ to which we’ve been appealing. Nothing isMersoAdsmore infinitely fickle than the Harvest Hemp Indy-AG.pdf

human brain. Our higher intelligence may account for the profligate success of the species, but equally clearly, that same higher intelligence is what’s going to kill us off. Time to try another organ. Head south of the border. The gonads. The groin. Pfizer Inc. grew incalculably rich selling little blue pills at $8 a pop that promised the male of the species four-hour erections. They did so by running nonstop TV commercials showing middle-aged men — all white, by the way— throwing footballs through a tire swing in the backyard. I mention race here because back when Viagra first launched, George Floyd had not yet been murdered and Black people had not yet been deemed suitable—desirable even—for TV commercial acting roles. In addition, it was believed for many years that Black people lacked the cognitive abilities to play quarterback, so it would make no kind of sense to depict them to be throwing footballs through anything. Apparently, we’ve come a long way. To digress, I personally have never been in any backyard with a tire swing. Nor have I ever thrown a football through one. You have no idea how this fact alienates me from the presumed reality imposed upon me by the mass media. By the same token, I have never been in a bar with a stripper pole. Watching TV— HBO especially—one would think most men spend 48 percent of their waking hours in establishments whose chief architectural feature is the 1 7/26/21 3:08 PM stripper pole, usually

adorned by some gyrating woman. In these shows, the men — preoccupied usually by who they are plotting to kill —never look. No wonder they buy blue pills. The scary thing about COVID is that it messes up with the flow of oxygen from heart to lungs by making the permeable soft tissues of the capillaries and other body parts through which oxygen is exchanged harder than beef jerky. A healthy set of lungs—which we are told can cover a land mass the size of Delaware when stretched out at maximum capacity—is more supple and yielding than anything described in your dime-store porn. Now imagine what havoc that same virus can play on the four-hour promise of Pfizer’s little blue pills. Four seconds might be more likely. If you’re lucky. It’s all about blood flow. And if COVID knows anything, it’s how to interrupt the blood flow. In recent weeks, news articles have surfaced indicating a possible connection between COVID and erectile dysfunction. Typically, they are written by urologists working in Cardiff, Wales, with last names lacking any vowels. Some allude to studies sponsored by front groups we will later discover were concocted by Pfizer. That’s how science happens these days. Very imperfectly. Typically, the punch line of these articles is that the research is suggestive, but not yet definitive. More studies, we are told, are needed. Of course they are. In the meantime, the mere suggestion of anaphylactic shock

is enough to dissuade millions of Americans from getting vaccinated, while the grim and

gruesome possibility of being intubated

—imagine an eternity of anaphylactic shock — somehow is not. Like I say, human intelligence is vastly overrated. There was a girl in my 2nd-grade class who had polio. She got around in leg braces and made a lot of noise when she moved. Other than that, she was a nice kid. When the polio vaccine was trotted out—little sugar cubes— no one thought twice. No one wanted their baby girl squeaking up a storm in the back of the classroom. Admittedly, today is different. Mostly it’s old people who are kicking the bucket. Or fat people. Or brown people. Or people who should have known better than to get cancer and end up in an immuno-compromised predicament. If it was up to me, I’d have Pfizer run TV commercials showing some famous former quarterback like Brett Favre, for example, trying to throw a football through the tire, but this time missing. If you don’t get vaccinated, he’d say, ain’t no blue pill going to help you. And then—at the very last second —he’d throw a perfect pass, hitting the donut hole of that stupid tire right between the eyes. You can lead a horse to water, we all know, even if you can’t make it drink. A jackass will drown every time. —Nick Welsh Don’t be stupid.

Why No Mandate?

T

he county’s new recommendation for mask wearing is terrible. Not the mask wearing, but the “recommendation” and not mandate. It will create confusion, bad feelings, and with every business on their own, no uniform procedures, and more pressure on business owners. Make a stand or not; putting it on the businesses is really weak. —Bob Ficarra, Goleta

ear Trustees Gallardo, Haslund, Miller, and Parker: We have followed the recent vote on whether SBCC should adopt a vaccination mandate for students, faculty, and staff, and we note, with dismay, your “no” vote on this vital public health issue. We do not need to repeat the scientific facts and the reasons why a vaccine mandate is fully justified under the circumstances. According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, as of July 14, 578 colleges have adopted a vaccine mandate. The vaccines are safe, and there is no reason, legally or medically, to wait until full FDA approval. We urge you to reconsider your votes and end up supporting the mandate. The Gray Panthers Santa Barbara Network works both independently and in coalition with others to achieve social and economic justice, to promote a clean sustainable environment, to support quality and affordable health care, and to create and maintain safe, affordable housing for all income levels as well as addressing other quality of life issues with special attention to older adults. We have friends and relatives who attend or work at the college and are concerned about the community spread of the virus to vulnerable people, including the elderly, even if they are vaccinated. —Richard Solomon, Chair, Gray Panthers S.B.

However, this is not it: 16 “affordable” units that are not nearly affordable enough. How about making truly affordable housing? How about making property taxes less? How about not allowing these big corporations and investors the ability to buy everything. How about making it easier on business owners? Shame on you, City Council! Clifford Leyva Santa Barbara, let’s take a look at Chapala, Anacapa, Santa Barbara to name a few huge housing projects. People need a place to call home. Santa Barbara is growing. • Michael O’Connell Why can’t a building more than three stories tall be erected? You could double the available units at six stories. If you are going to build it, why not make it more useful? Not a lot of esthetic happening on Milpas. No view to block. It’s moronic to build a project like this and not use more vertical space.

Walter Leland Johnson passed away on July 1, 2021, in Santa Barbara, California at the age of 98. He was born in Caldwell, Ohio on December 22, 1922, to Walter and Elizabeth Springer Johnson. He lived in Caldwell until December 1942 when he enlisted in the US Army at Fort Thomas, Kentucky. He served stateside until deployed to Guam in the summer of 1945. After WWII ended, he joined the Army Reserve and returned to a civilian job. Early in 1948, he was drawn back to active duty in the Army and was promoted to Staff Sargent. Shortly after the Korean War broke out, Walt enlisted in the newly formed U.S. Air Force with the Rank of Airman. It was during these years that Walt made his first trip to Japan. There he received training in Special Investigations and was promoted to Master Sargent. Having learned to speak Japanese, Walt was sent to Japan for a year and enjoyed the Japanese culture. He collected and treasured beautiful works of Japanese art. Before his next assignment he was sent to the Air Force of Special Investigations (OSI) for additional education. He applied his new expertise on his assignment in Cleveland, Ohio for the next 2 years. In 1961, Walt was sent to Chicago. There he met and married the love of his life, Kristi Marie Salm, who had emigrated from Estonia. After 4 years in Chicago, Walt was sent to Tan San Nut, Vietnam for a one year tour (his third major conflict). After his service in Vietnam, Walt was given orders to Vandenburg AFB in California for his final tour of duty. His investigative focus was on counter intelligence and criminal violations. After his military discharge, he and Kristi settled in Santa Barbara where they both went to work for Santa Barbara County County; Walt in the Court system and Kristi became the County Auditor-

Controller. They had more then 30 years together, taking wonderful trips, raising orchids, and making wooden toys for the Unity Shop. Sadly, Kristi died in 1994. Walt carried on, comforted by his loving family. Walt was truly an honored member of the “Greatest Generation”. He was awarded the following medals/ribbons: American Theater Ribbon, WWII Victory Ribbon, United Nations Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, National Defense Medal. Walt was predeceased by his brother, Jim Johnson and his sister Erma Clem. He is survived by nieces: Dawn Carol Rhome, Marianne Amspaugh (Doug), Leisa (Jeff), Meredith. A heartfelt thanks to Walt’s loving Caregivers, Carolyn, Mia, Reni, Michael and his loyal friends Bonnie and Stan, who each spent happy times with Walt. He will be missed by dear friends, Marilyn and her husband Jack, Walt’s toy making partner. Much appreciation to the care given by Santa Barbara Complete Care and Abundant Care. In lieu of flowers, donations in Walt’s name can be made to any Veteran Charities of your choice.

College Certificate of Merit for outstanding service to the school was awarded to Jim. Jim later joined the Army and received an honorary discharge in 1964. He then opened Super Cue Recreation in Bakersfield with his brother. Jim later worked for the California State Department of Motor Vehicles in Santa Monica as a driver inspector until his retirement. Jim enjoyed the Santa Barbara downtown area where  he found many old and new friends. He was affectionately known as the mayor of West Micheltorena Street where he resided for decades. Because of his outgoing personality, Jim never met a stranger. He will be missed by friends, neighbors and loved ones.  Jim was predeceased by his parents Gordon (1959) and Irene Elsing (2005). On a sad note, his friend Len Stevenson succumbed to Covid-19 earlier this year on February 25th, 2021 according to Noozhawk.

Nancy Lynn Roman passed away on June 30, 2021, while on a backpacking trip in the Peruvian Andes. She will be missed. Nancy was a loving wife and mother of 4 children. Born and raised in Santa Barbara, Nancy loved to hike the backcountry trails and spent most weekends taking local day hikes with friends and local hiking groups. She also went on longer trips such as the John Muir Trail and all the very remote places found in the Dick Smith and San Rafael Wilderness areas such as Hurricane Deck. Nancy also loved music and the arts, teaching recorder to elementary students at Goleta elementary schools for close to 15 years. She painted, played the flute, harp, and tended a beautiful home garden. Many also knew Nancy from her Yoga and personal fitness classes taught in many Goleta and Santa

Barbara locations such as Maravilla, Stow Park, and the YMCA. Nancy attended Peabody and Roosevelt elementary schools, Santa Barbara Junior High, Santa Barbara High School (74), and Santa Barbara City College where she learned the art of dental assisting and then went back and took every single Spanish class they had to offer. She loved the Spanish language. Nancy is survived by husband David and children Rebecca, Daniel, Christopher, and Michael.

Roxanne Aposperis 4/30/1945 - 7/20/2021

Roxanne lost her battle with Pancreatic Cancer on July 20, 2021, just eight days before her 54th wedding anniversary. She was 76. She was raised in LA and graduated from UCSB in 1966. She went to San Francisco State for post graduate work and met her husband, Gregory, when he knocked on the wrong apartment door. They married ten months later. When Gregory graduated from the California College of Podiatric Medicine they moved to Santa Barbara. When she left UCSB she stated “God, if I am good let me come back to Santa Barbara”. Later, she would say “I must have been really good as three years later I was back”. She worked as a Paralegal, Medical Office Manager and Medical Staff Secretary at GVCH before managing her husband’s Podiatric practice for 51 years prior to his retirement. Unfortunately, she was diagnosed with cancer at the time of their retirement and with the COVID issue there was no time to enjoy life. Roxanne had been active in the American Association of University Women, La Mirada Home, and a founding and active member of the Santa Barbara Chapter of UCSB Alumni Association until it was disbanded by the University. She also was a contributor to the building of the Saint Barbara Greek Orthodox Church. In addition to her husband she is survived by her adopted family, Maribel, Lalo, Tlaloc and Temoc. She will be missed by many friends as well as her cat Lily. Private services are planned.

Agustin Mirelez Ortiz III 6/19/1977 - 7/15/2021

Sally Bogert Mandle passed away with her family by her side in Santa Barbara, CA on June 21, 2021. Sally left a life of dedication to her two boys and their wives, Gary (Kathy) and Richard (Peggy), and to her grandchildren Aimee (Rich) and Terri (Scott), and Sally will miss the growing up of her great grandchildren Tatum, Landon, Kanon, Rocco and Gianna. Sally’s example of family devotion will be an inspiration for generations to come. Sally also set a high standard for volunteering to the community in many ways. In high school she volunteered, with her sister to be a ‘plane spotter’ during WWII. She continued her volunteering at school with PTA, School Lunch Program, Elementary School Librarian, Mt. View El Camino Hospital Auxiliary volunteer and eventually a term as Auxiliary President, Police Department Volunteer, and any organization that needed help. After moving to Santa Barbara, CA in 2000, Sally found many opportunities to volunteer and eventually lead organizations within the Retirement Community. Her days were filled with many tasks she enjoyed and helped support and grow. In later years, Sally could be found relaxing by playing Bridge, Mahjong, and shuffleboard with her resident friends and tending to her extensive apartment cactus garden. She also enjoyed helping with the tending of the community rose and cactus gardens, along with other resident volunteer gardeners. Later, Sally volunteered at the resident thrift store, and eventually becoming the elected Store Manager for a term. If you gathered from Sally’s interests that she was a ‘doer’ you are right. Sally accepted most solicitations to help anytime. She will be remembered as an unusual, outgoing, congenial and capable resident who could always be counted on to help when help was needed. Her friendly, outgoing, manner was always the

Agustin Mirelez Ortiz III (Augie Ortiz) a well-known Tiler and Stone Mason and lifelong resident of Santa Barbara, CA, passed away on Thursday, July 15th, 2021. Augie is survived by his wife Sonia Lopez, his father Agustin Ortiz Jr.; uncles and aunts and many cousins. He is predeceased by his mother Raquel Patlan Mirelez; brother; grandmother Herminia Ortiz and grandfather Agustin Ortiz. Augie was born in Santa Clara, CA on June 19, 1977. He graduated from Santa Barbara High School in 1996. He worked for StoneScapes where he learned the profession of Stone Masonry and learned to be a Tiler from his father. He worked as an independent contractor for many years until his passing. He enjoyed his work and took a lot of pride in helping his clients build beautiful outdoor patios and indoor tile remodels. Augie’s hobbies included spending time outdoors, hiking, camping, and most importantly, playing bocce ball. Later in life, he developed a passion for designing and making bocce ball courts for his clients. It was very typical to find him at Arnoldi’s Café playing bocce ball and spending quality time with friends and family members. Augie was gentle, calm, and had a kind nature; he had memorable laughter and a beautiful smile. He will be deeply missed by his wife, father, family members and friends. In honor of our beloved Augie, if you are struggling with alcoholism, we urge you to seek help at (805) 962-3332 www.aa.org. We will be having a church service for Augie Ortiz on Monday, August 2nd at 10:00 am. It will be held at Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish at 227 N. Nopal Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93103.

Bob was born in Oklahoma City on July 17, 1943 to Lorene and Morris Danford. He spent his first two years at his Grandmother and Daddy Frank’s home with his Mother, while his dad served in WWII. After his father returned from the war, where Morris was one of the first soldiers to march into a liberated Berlin, Bob and his parents moved to Tulsa where Morris was employed with the Army Corps of Engineers. Bob was an avid reader as a child and became president of the chess club. He played violin in the Tulsa Central High School Orchestra and Oklahoma University (Boomer Sooner!) Orchestra. Bob’s love for music carried into fun moments while at university, where he was seen playing his pump organ from the back of a pickup truck being driven around his college town of Norman, Ok. At university, Bob majored in Astronomy, which grew his lifelong curiosity in the research and study of galaxies and stars (and at the 1993 Santa Barbara Solstice Parade, he walked down State Street as a Comet). While at OU, Bob also discovered his passion for Computer Science and was hired by a company in Palo Alto, starting his long and productive career. Moving to Santa Barbara, CA, Robert Danford became the co-founder of the telemetry software company, Acroamatics, Inc. with his partners Pat and Jeff Johnson. Jeff described Bob as being one of the world’s foremost authorities in Pulse Code Modulation Telemetry. A few favorite professional experiences included working with NASA, watching the Space Shuttle launches, as well as working in Kauai with his coworkers and associates there. As an avid backpacker, he found joy hiking into the Sierra backcountry and Wyoming Wind River Mountains with his dear friend, Jerry Stauffer. In 1975, Bob married Joan Laubenstein, and their daugh-

ter, Allison Marie, was born two years later. Bob’s second child, Zev Smith-Danford, was born in 1990. And on June 29, 1996, Bob married Ellen Hamilton Byrne in Santa Barbara. Ellen and Bob were blessed and grateful for their opportunities to travel to Australia, New Zealand, Europe and many times to the island of Kauai. Holding his baby grandson, Evan Matthew Gaylord, and beautiful granddaughter, Violet Marie Gaylord, were the best of memories with his daughter Allison in Woodinville, Washington, as well seeing, Zev, Bob’s younger child’s graduation from Humboldt State University and accomplishments after graduation. Bob’s brother, Steven Danford and wife, Jo Etta Agee complete and continue to inspire our family. A Memorial Service is being planned for August.. And in lieu of flowers, please send memorial contributions to Central Office, 14 W Anapamu St., Santa Barbara, CA 93101

Nandini Iyer

INDEPENDENT.COM

Teacher, Traveler, Inspiration BY P I C O I Y E R any, many people knew the small,

elegant figure in a gold silk sari, zigzagging around town, often at high speed, from the Sanskrit class she led at UCSB to the World Religions classes she taught for decades at City College to the tai chi class she was attending and Trader Joe’s and a lecture at the museum and the class she chose to teach in her eighties at the Braille Institute. I got used to showing up at CVS — almost anywhere, in fact — and hearing, “How’s your wife today? She’s such a neat lady!” “Not my wife,” I’d say. “My mother. But I can see why you made the mistake.” We could barely step into a restaurant without someone coming up shyly and saying, “Excuse me. You won’t remember me, but I was your student, in Philosophy, 40 years ago. You really changed my life!” Yet very few knew that the friendly and fun-loving figure in front of them, Nandini Iyer, had graduated with a First Class degree (rarer than a summa cum laude) from the highly competitive University of Bombay, gone on to become the first Asian woman ever to get First Class Honours, in philosophy, politics, and economics at Oxford, as well as the first Asian woman to speak at the Oxford Union, the debating society that has long been the cradle of prime ministers — and then had taught at Oxford next to Iris Murdoch and many another household name. The seemingly bottomless fund of knowledge she drew upon concerning the Hundred Years’ War, the long stanzas she could effortlessly quote from Shelley and Tennyson, and the Bible that she knew better than most of the well-meaning evangelists who showed up at her door to introduce her to the Good

Book were all a testament to a deeply classical, formidably well-rounded Indo-Anglian education that she carried like a treasure through life. She was born to a cosmopolitan family in Ahmedabad; her father, who got his doctoral degree from Harvard, was helping to run the British-built railways in India, and her mother was a Gujarati novelist (and constant fighter for social justice). My mother’s family had always been involved in the law and the rights of the dispossessed, and Gandhi had come by the house at times. Both her brother and her brotherin-law went to MIT — not a common thing before the war — and her father, who would steer his 1930s Pontiac around Bombay, loved to head off to Europe and Japan for months on end, while the youngest of his three children, my mother, stayed in large family homes around India, went through the celebrated Cathedral School in Bombay (whose other products include Salman Rushdie and Fareed Zakaria), and then became the relatively rare young Indian woman to take the exam to get into Oxford and board a P&O ship for the 16-day trip to England. My mother was wildly gifted from the beginning: She won prizes for both art and biology as a girl and, 70 years on, could remember her lines from performing in The Mikado and acting as Wilde’s Lady Windermere. She represented Africa, for some reason, in a carnival of nations presented before Princess Margaret and was photographed by Britain’s society magazine Tatler. In Ved Mehta’s book Up at Oxford, she is presented while in England as an ideal of sorts for a newly arrived writer: “scholarly,” “such an impressive social presence,” and, with her husband, “so strikingly handsome that they could have passed for movie idols.” But she never let this go to her head, and after she became engaged to my father, Raghavan Iyer,


Premier Sponsor: DEEP WISDOM: Nandini Iyer was frequently seen around town, dashing from tai chi class to museum lectures, or teaching religion and philosophy at SBCC and UCSB, but less known were her firsts at Oxford and “classical, formidably well-rounded Indo-Anglian education that she carried like a treasure through life.”

whom she had first met when she was 17 (and he 18) in Bombay, she gave herself over to the Theosophical tradition to which he was firmly committed. She became a vegetarian, added an unbreakable spiritual center to her love of film and travel and conversation, and, shedding her three-inch heels, devoted much of her time for the rest of her life to teaching and studying Theosophy as well as the other religions she spoke on at churches and in temples everywhere. When the Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions brought my father to Santa Barbara in 1965, my mother dropped her teaching at Oxford and her appearances on the BBC and began teaching philosophy at UCSB, Spinoza her particular passion. Later, she would share her compendious knowledge of Judaism, Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, and every other religious tradition with generations of students, many of whom would ask her, at semester’s end, which was her chosen faith (they couldn’t tell!). Around Santa Barbara, she seemed ubiquitous, studying Japanese flower arrangement and vegetarian cooking, giving talks at the Vedanta Temple, and rarely letting a classical music concert, ballet, or play appear without her taking it in. Whether it was in her Alfa Romeo—or, later, her sleek blue sports car—she usually left an impression of dash combined with soft-hearted fun and an almost regal sense of self-possession. Indeed, whether she was lecturing in Kyoto or Amsterdam, she always came with a huge supply of jokes, and her close friends included housekeepers, secretaries, and massage therapists, as well as Nobel Prize–winning economists. Quiet and supportive when with her brightly colored husband, she was full of life and talk when on her own, and friends and strangers would grow used to animated telephone conversations late into the night, her advice on matters both personal and political, and her slight figure telling one last story in a parking lot before heading off to Vons sometime after midnight. As her son, I inherited and relished her interest in everything and her love of adventure. After she turned 67, we traveled together to places she’d always longed to see—Cambodia, Easter Island, Syria, and Jordan—and I was never surprised to find her traipsing along beside me through a Southeast Asian jungle at 4 a.m. At 78, she was to be found walking for long hours under the midday sun through Ephesus, Pompeii, Patmos, and Jerusalem, and even at 80, she was to be seen spending a whole morning wandering around St. Petersburg (and Berlin and Stockholm). For years, people—not least my mother— would ask me why a son would go to bed at 8:30 while his mother was slipping back into the house after a horror-movie double-bill at 1 a.m. I knew her as a constantly doting mother who would drive around town for hours to find my favorite kind of chocolate and well into her eighties would get up without complaint at 3 a.m. to take me to the airport. When, as a boy, I lost a cherished security blanket along the road near Lake Casitas, she drove for eight hours through the dark to find it. But for everyone else, she was a wise, spirited, and infectiously cheerful friend and, most of all, teacher, and one who could illuminate the great spiritual traditions with one-liners and references to Shakespeare while linking her beloved cats to the great goddesses of classical mythology. She always seemed unfallen in a way, an innocent girl in her love of novels and Jeopardy! and the Audrey Hepburn movies being shown on Turner Classic Movies, and a sage presence in her almost unrivaled erudition and inner seriousness, who contributed to more charities than I can count and would lend much of her savings to an acquaintance she barely knew. She will be missed by much of the town, I suspect; for me, of course, she will be irreplaceable. n

own waste in our own county and turn it into benefits for the community,” she told the crowd at the MRF on July 16. The flip side of that goal is a “do no harm” effort for the watershed. When it rains, Pila Creek drains the upper watershed of the canyon, which has no natural spring, said Carlyle Johnston, project leader for the ReSource Center. Where the creek crosses into the landfill, it’s channeled into a pipe buried under all the trash and emerges near the highway before it drops down to the Pacific Ocean, he explained. In his 19 years with Public Works’ Resource Recovery division, Johnston said they’ve given 150 public presentations about the project. He’s told the Tajiguas story in all its detail over 100 times. The mountains of trash rise to about 600 feet, and any surface water runoff is funneled into a pond and tested. The old part of the landfill sits on Rincon shale, Johnston said, explaining that the formation creates a natural barrier between the trash and groundwater. Santa Barbara County’s dry climate means little rain falls or percolates through the layers to speed the breakdown of trash into methane, the worst of the greenhouse gases. The newer part of the landfill is lined with plastic. At any one time, the open face of the landfill is just a couple hundred feet of trash, which is pushed into a 22-degree angle before being covered with dirt by giant backhoes. After testing, the water from the pond is sprayed to keep the dust down. Nearby, Dave Roth was parked with a falcon. A falconer and a predatory bird have been onsite at Tajiguas since 2002 to keep the seagull population in check. Just flying the raptor was enough to send the seagulls scattering, said Johnston, and none were in sight. At their height, about 4,000 gulls scavenged at the trash site; they then would gather at Arroyo Quemada Beach, sending ocean-water fecal counts soaring. Both the seagull population and the poop microbes dropped dramatically once Roth and his “muse” of falcons were hired.

IT’S BLACK GOLD The “out of sight, out of mind” approach that most of us take to our trash predates home garbage pickups. Early Santa Barbarans sank their trash into a lagoon that flowed several blocks toward town from the ocean, and they eventually filled it with debris from the 1925 earthquake. Bits and pieces still turn up when a development in the coastal zone digs a foundation. The land under Elings Park was once the county dump before Tajiguas was created. Trash heaps can catch fire or explode from the heat generated as organics break down into methane, and the hills at Tajiguas — old and new — are plumbed for methane extraction. Some landfills still use flares to burn off excess biogas, but the new state-of-theart anaerobic digester installed and heated to an optimum temperature at Tajiguas is expected to consume 99.9 percent of the methane produced by the organic trash. Operations at the ReSource Center go like this: As trash from MarBorg’s brown bins rumble up a crisscrossing maze of conveyor belts — with machines from the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, and elsewhere organized to puff air to move plastics and dry paper in one direction and magnets and “Eddy current” to move metals and aluminum in another — what drops down into bins are food waste and wet or dirty paper that get sent to the anaerobic digester. The ReSource Center employs 20 people to stand watch and pull out strays along the pathways to

COOKING WASTE: In the anaerobic digester, which cost $33 million to build, airtight bunkers hold organics from the trash and slowly break it down into a nutrient-rich sludge. Combined with green waste, the mixture becomes valuable compost.

Not onlyeStore: is the sorting com simpler — and easily adjusted on the new machines — but when consumers separate recyclables from trash, the recycled materials FIRESTAD.COM INFO@FIRESTAD.COM stay clean, very important when it comes to cardboard and paper. “Cardboard sells for about $150 a ton,” he said. “When it’s contaminated with food, it’s worth less.” At the anaerobic digester — a low-slung concrete structure with 16 airtight bunkers — the first batch of organics is mixed with 3 percent cow manure and heated to 104 degrees Fahrenheit for 28 days. The watery muck is like sourdough starter in that the resulting bacteria soup is self-perpetuating. It resembles a black sludge that smells terrifically of ammonia and cat urine, said Johnston. Once combined with green waste — which is also chopped and separated at Tajiguas — and set out in windrows on an asphalt plain the size of a soccer field, six to eight weeks later, the result is a compost that would make a farmer cry. The rich mix, when applied to topsoil, holds in moisture and promotes the growth of whatever it touches: grasses, crops, orchards, gardens, and the microbes that live in a healthy soil community. The methane that off-gases as the organics break down is pure energy — and an extremely harmful one in terms of greenhouse gases. According to the EPA, methane has 25-100 percent more planet-warming power than carbon dioxide, said Johnston. Burned in gas engines, methane that flows out from the landfill and the digester creates the energy the ReSource Center runs on, and the excess goes to the electrical grid. Once burned, the methane is reduced to carbon dioxide.

CUTS GREENHOUSE GAS One short week after the July 16 ribbon-cutting, the anaerobic digester was set to preheat. It was to ingest its first load of material the month after. When the facility is fully up and running, 40 percent or more of the waste taken to Tajiguas will end up in the digester, Johnston said. Germany has about 9,000 anaerobic digesters like this one, said John Dewey, head of Mustang Renewable Power Ventures, the lead contractor that put both the facility and the financing together. California has 22. Santa Barbara’s is the first facility to host all the elements — from the waste mixture to compost production — in one place. “It goes from farm to table and back to the farm in a healthy soil cycle,” Dewey said. The end result is a clean-energy facility that contributes the single greatest reduction of greenhouse gases in the county, said

IT’S A GO: Years of combined effort by staffers, elected officials, and contractors culminated in a traditional ribboncutting on July 16.

LAEL WAGENECK

3rd District Supervisor Joan Hartmann. She marveled that Tajiguas now turned a liability into an asset — namely, converting tons of trash into saleable recyclables, compost, and energy every year — and into agriculturally valuable compost. The decade or more of life this all will add to the landfill is necessary; tons of trash that cannot be recycled or digested anaerobically continues to come through its gates in MarBorg trucks seven days a week. Roughly 20 percent is pulled out as recyclables, such as glass, metals, number 1 and number 2 plastics, and dry cardboard and paper. An important benefit they’d found, said Johnston, is that the magnetic sorters capture any batteries thrown into the trash. Tajiguas doesn’t accept hazardous waste such as batteries or medical waste. Plastics are considered among the worst of modern products now, Johnston said, pointing out bales of thin-film plastics on the ReSource Center floor destined for the landfill. They baled them to make sure none got caught in the wind and sailed out to sea. When they sold the plastics, they tried to find buyers and remanufacturers in California. Number 1 plastics reappear in grocery stores as clamshell berry boxes made in

list at the county’s lessismore.org resource recovery website from time to time.

DON’T BUY STUFF

Das Williams was in a “let’s cut the BS” frame of mind a week after the ribbon cutting. “This is the greatest victory we’ve ever had in reducing methane greenhouse-gas emissions in this community,” he said. However, “our understanding of solid waste really undermines the picture of ourselves as paragons of environmental conscience.” Local solutions to waste were fundamental, and he found it environmentally irresponsible to even consider trucking South County’s trash to Santa Maria. At the City of Santa Barbara, Williams said, “we even got to 70 percent diversion, but we never reduced by one ton the amount of trash going into the landfill compared to when we recycled zero. The reason is the wastefulness of our lifestyle and our affluence, which has kept pace with our ability to recycle.” Part of the point of the Education Center at Tajiguas was to show where the recyclables go, he noted. “Right now, the demand for recycled materials demonstrates how hot the economy is,” he cautioned. “We have to be conscious of that in the long run, too.” He had praise for the anaerobic digester, which if anything has been undersold. “If the compost it produces is used for any agricultural purpose, then the carbon farming, the carbon fixing, the water saving the compost does will reduce emissions even TEAM EFFORT: County resources’ Carlyle Johnston, who discussed the project more.” with thousands of residents, talks with design superintendent David Poorhouse (left) and Mike and Jim Diani, whose Diani Construction built the new facility. Reducing pollutants is huge, Williams said, but California, for instance, and number 2 plastics ultimately, “so much of what needs to be accomare currently reprocessed into detergent bottles. plished to save our environment is driven by the Number 2 and number 5 plastics sometimes go choices of individuals, what they choose to buy, to Malaysia, where they are made into rigid plas- what they choose to drive, what they choose to do.” Johnston couldn’t agree more. He noted that tics, and Vietnam takes most of Santa Barbara’s paper. Water is the big issue for paper, Johnston the “Reduce, Reuse, Recycle” slogan has outlived said, and they were waiting for the mills in the its purpose, as the landfill and the planet near the northwest to open again. The markets change tipping point. constantly, he added, which is why people will “Recycling is cool, but cool as it is, it’s better find certain plastics absent from the recyclables not to buy stuff.” n

efore you get to see the buds, you have to look at the bugs — the ladybugs, that is. That’s how the farm tour at Autumn Brands in Carpinteria begins, with the admonition to pay attention not so much to the tall cannabis plants that fill these large greenhouses, but rather to the tiny insects and larvae that colonize them. For Hans Brand and his adult children, Hanna and Johnny, the dream of building a successful company out of their greenhouses in Carpinteria depends on maintaining strict standards, many of which relate to government regulations while others are strictly their own, such as their insistence on raising their crops without the use of insecticide sprays. Hans likes to credit Johnny, who has a degree in agricultural science from Cal Poly, with the solution they’ve found. “You can use organic pesticides,” he told me, “but obviously, whatever you spray on the plants, it stays there. You can’t wash your weed.”

INDEPENDENT.COM

The decision to choose insects over insecticides dates back to the beginning of the Autumn Brands project, three and a half years ago. Over that time, the Brand family has tested different strains and worked with different combinations and ratios of insects to combat the aphids that can destroy the plants. Unlike with a spraying regime, the goal is not the total elimination of pests, but rather the establishment of a natural balance, one that allows even the aphids a way to survive, just not at a level that would limit production too drastically.

“We spend about a third less on pest control than we used to,” says Hans, whose experience in horticulture goes back to the days when these greenhouses were used to grow roses and other cut flowers. He acknowledges that this new method means more work and a slightly less productive farm, but he’s willing to accept that bargain. “Believe me,” he said, “we’ve lost some crops.” Such is the ethos of those who have arrived in the cannabis industry from a background in familyowned-and-operated horticulture. The Brands are a product of a long tradition in Carpinteria of farmers, mostly Dutch, who early on recognized that this microclimate would be ideal for their greenhouses. Over the past several decades, they have witnessed the decimation of the market for flowers by globalization, and now the advent of legal cannabis as a financially attractive alternative to a business that would not have allowed them to keep their properties. Surveying the complex of modern trays and rollers imported from Holland that allow the staff at Autumn Brands to grow and move their crops without once touching their pristine flowers, it’s easy to see the appeal of this new venture, which allows men like Hans Brand to pay their workers, offer them benefits, and provide a lucrative legacy to their families. This sense of honoring the place through caring for its native sons and daughters even extends to the ladybugs. “They are the native California ladybugs and they do not have little spots on them,” Hans explained. “They come to lay their larvae and do their thing.” Entomologists from UCSB have studied Autumn Brands and they concur; these ladies are locals. For Johnny Brand, the decision to return to Carpinteria and work in the family business was something that required patience and even a degree of secrecy. As an agriculture student, he didn’t neces-

sarily tell his classmates or his teachers what the family had planned. Now, both Johnny and sister Hanna, who also graduated from Cal Poly, can embrace the partnership that their father has formed with co-owner Autumn Shelton, and even bring interns to the property from the same college program that they attended. For the Brand family, the elaborate system of Metrcs imposed by the state of California on cannabis, however arduous and painstaking it may be, represents liberation rather than constraint, as it removes their business from the threat of delegitimation. Their insistence on the no-spray policy reflects adherence to an ideal of providing a product that’s pure and that presents as little potential for liability as possible. While they joke about the fact that they need to have a specific license and manifest simply to move their crop from one greenhouse to another, the overall feeling is that compliance is their friend. The transition to cannabis meant Brand was able to rehire some of the same people who worked for him when he grew cut flowers, and he’s clearly proud to have had the opportunity to rectify what were painful decisions in the past. “For them, it’s a really good change,” he told me “In the end of the flower industry, we had to take away some of these retirement plans and lower the cost of insurance, but now we can replace all that again. If you look back five or six years ago, the wages today are at least double.” Several of the crew have recently celebrated 30-year anniversaries with the company. Recalling the early days of his involvement with legal cannabis, back when the market in California was strictly medicinal, Brand describes stepping back from a venture that involved three other partners. “I didn’t like where it was going,” he told me. “Not that they were not good, I just didn’t see a future for my kids.” He credits Autumn Shelton, his partner and CFO, with providing him with the trust and stability he needed to create something that he could hand down to the next generation.

SAVING JOBS: Hans Brand had to part ways with some of his workers when the cut-flower industry went south. He’s since hired many of them back.

Not that it’s going to be easy. Looking at his son and daughter, joined now by their mother as we prepare to depart, Brand says this to them with a smile, “I didn’t say I’m going to give it to you guys. You can go to work for it as your company, but do understand that I’m going to work a lot less because I worked a lot in my life already.” From the expressions all around, it’s evident that the time has come for Hans Brand to begin to relax. The next generation, along with the ladybugs, has got his back. n

CREATIVE CAKES: Alessia Guehr (below) is crafting stunning pastries as well as lunch savories such as croque monsieur and duck confit at her new café and patisserie near the iconic corner of East Canon Perdido and Santa Barbara streets.

A

that it’s surprising the name wasn’t the first thing that popped into Alessia Guehr’s mind before opening her jewel box of a spot on East Canon Perdido. But given that her parents, Brigitte Guehr and Norbert Schulz, are Santa Barbara food scene veterans — arguably, the creators of it — who both owned restaurants named after themselves, Alessia eventually realized, “I should keep up the family tradition.” And that she does, not just in name. Guehr’s team had to demo pretty much everything in what was briefly Miso Hungry to create this inviting urban space of hardwood floors, copper banquettes, and a pastry display that demands damning the calories, as full devouring is

ahead. “People eat first with their eyes,” Guehr explained, “so everything has to be beautiful.” That beauty is more than flaky-dough deep, for Guehr’s goal is “to create old-school French pastries that people connect with. But we develop each singular flavor,” she said. “We’re always looking for a new way to do an old-school thing.”  Key to that “we” is assistant pastry chef Jordan Pilarski, who previously worked at the Ritz-Carlton Bacara. The two met via Instagram. “The kitchen itself drew me in, and then Alessia drew me in,” said Pilarski. “We see things the exact same way. We’re both neoclassicists.” That extends to the café portion of the restaurant, which currently serves breakfast and lunch, with plans for dinner and more eventually. Think classic French fare, from croque monsieur to salmon Niçoise, with a duck confit

And now we have this beautiful, huge restaurant.” Opening a full-fledged café seemed her fate: Guehr’s baby pictures have her covered in flour, and her earliest memories are going on catering gigs with her parents. An outdoorsy child, she insists that her only time watching television was the Food Network, “writing down all the recipes as fast as I could.” The Dos Pueblos High grad boasts a résumé any baker would be score for, featuring eight-plus years at the Four Seasons The Biltmore, where she eventually became assistant pastry chef, a stint at Thomas Keller’s bouchon, and then a post as assistant pastry chef at Le Marais Bakery in San Francisco. Santa Barbara drew her back when her father had a health scare, so she opted to help him at The Nook. They worked side-by-side for five years until Schulz sold the Funk Zone hot spot this July. “It brought us a lot closer,” she said. “And it gave me time to build my managerial skills. I really learned the things I do and don’t want in a business.”

One thing she’s definitely learned is how much she appreciates being her own boss. “Hotel life is great as you get a big budget and can play with a lot of things,” she explained. “But at a hotel, you’re a number. I wanted my own place where people could push me to be a better chef.” Beyond the food, she also wants the work culture of her café to be wonderful, another family tradition. “When I grew up, staff were our family,” she remembered. “They were people I would want to be around outside of work.”  And if her employees are happy, it’s more likely her customers will be too. “I wanted a place that was upscale, but one where people from everywhere in Santa Barbara felt comfortable coming in,” she said. “We want our staff to seriously want to greet you — that gets rid of any of the bougie feel.” Guehr is thrilled to be in the mini-foodie mecca of the Presidio Neighborhood, pointing to the view of the chapel from her large window, “It’s historic and it’s irresistible,” she said. And yes, that person next to you at the window might just be her retired father, Norbert. Said Guehr, “His only job here is to have a great croissant sandwich and enjoy the view.”

RISE IN RESTAURANT BURGLARIES: Sheriff ’s detec-

tives are investigating four recent restaurant burglaries that involved suspects smashing through glass doors or windows and stealing items in the middle of the night. Old Town Coffee in the 5800 block of Hollister Avenue in Goleta was hit on July 23, and then on July 25, South Coast Deli and Choi’s Market on the 100 block of South Patterson were burglarized before 3 a.m. Less than an hour later, at around 3:45 a.m., Pierre Lafond in the 500 block of San Ysidro Road in Montecito was targeted through very similar means. While analyzing security footage and other evidence, detectives are treating the incidents as separate incidents until they can be linked to the same suspects. Anyone with information about these burglaries can call the Criminal Investigations Bureau at (805) 681-4150, the anonymous tip line at (805) 681-4171, or submit information online via sbsheriff.org/home/anonymous-tip.

scheduled to open on June 15, The Courthouse Tavern at 129 East Anapamu Street (formerly The Little Door, Piano Riviera Lounge, The French Table, and Elements Restaurant & Bar) is now set to launch on August 4. “We will be opening for Fiesta next week and then opening gradually the following week for lunch, then breakfast, then dinner,” says owner Warren Butler, who is serving American cuisine with an all-day happy hour of drink specials and small plates in a “friendly neighborhood bar” style. The eatery will also be available for private parties and catering. FATTE’S PIZZA OPENS: Readers Steve H. and Bren-

dan let me know that Fatte’s Pizza has opened at 2840 De la Vina Street in the former home of Lilsey’s Wood-Fired Pizza, Nicky D’s Wood-

Fired Pizza, and Pizza Hut. The sign is not yet up on the building and employees have not yet been hired, so owner Obniel Ariza is running the operation solo. Ariza also operates a Fatte’s Pizza in Santa Maria. “Purchase any size pizza and get a second one of equal value free,” says Ariza about his favorite aspect of the business. He tells me that there are 21 different ingredients that you can choose to add to a build-your-own pizza. Prices for the combo pizzas range from $22.99 to $41.99. The Family Deal, with two large twotopping pizzas, one two-liter soda, garlic bread, and one order of buffalo wings or medium antipasto salad is $40.47, while the Party Pack includes four large pizzas with two toppings and two two-liter sodas for $55.98.

APPRECIATING MORGAN NEVILLE’S ANTHONY BOURDAIN DOCUMENTARY

he Cinema Society of the Santa Barbara International Film Festival made an emotional return to its home in the Riviera Theatre on Saturday, July 17, by screening Roadrunner: A Film About Anthony Bourdain. The film’s director, Morgan Neville, grew up in Santa Barbara, and he was present for an enlightening Q&A with SBIFF’s Roger Durling immediately following the film. In addition to generally positive reviews, Roadrunner has attracted additional attention, primarily on social media, from those who question the decision to use artificial intelligence to re-create Bourdain’s voice in one 45-second sequence in which it is made to seem as though he is reading aloud the text of an email that he wrote to his friend David Choe. Bourdain has a fanatical following, so it’s no surprise that there’s been pushback on something as unprecedented as “deep fake” tech showing up in a documentary film about someone for whom there is no lack of authentic audio. Rather than summarize the positions others have taken, I’d like to politely decline the discussion altogether. Here instead are some reasons to see the film that aren’t “I love Tony” (those people have already made up their minds) and some things to talk about that aren’t those pesky 45 seconds of AI. The film begins in the middle of Anthony Bourdain’s life, right as Kitchen Confidential hits the New York Times Best Sellers list. To Neville’s great good fortune, a friend of Bourdain’s, one Dmitri by name, felt that what was happening to him in 1999 was worth filming. Dmitiri dreamt of editing the footage into a documentary one day. Well, dreams do come true, although not often in the ways that we first imagine. Almost 20 years later, Neville acquired the footage — 60 hours of his subject in action

at a crucial moment in his life that would otherwise have been, for documentary purposes, invisible. The sequences built from this archival foundation are a revelation. Young Bourdain hasn’t become a television star yet. We see him with his first wife, Nancy Putkoski, and we follow him as he develops the initial relationships that will allow him to succeed. The thrill of overnight GOING DOWN THE ROAD: Anthony Bourdain gets a fascinating biosuccess spills in effervesdoc from filmmaker Morgan Neville. cent pools around the street.

WHAT JUST HAPPENED In the aftermath of the Former Guy’s reckless run at world domination, books detailing the craziness in the White House have super-bloomed. Amid these mostly bloated hardcovers, What Just Happened: 210 Haiku Against the Trump Presidency by Santa Barbara poet David Starkey grows like a delicate sprig of forget-me-nots. Each week of those four horrid years gets just 17 syllables, in which Starkey manages to capture the latest outrage with a courtier poet’s sprezzatura. Future historians will enjoy annotating such nuggets as: At an observance honoring Navajos, a Pocahantas joke. Things turn dark under the unheeded threat of “this China virus,” but the hardest moment is still to come. In week 208, Starkey writes: At the Capitol one last traitorous assault on democracy. Fortunately, there is no plan for a sequel. —CD

CUTEST INTERVIEW EVER:

THE NEWEYS The Neweys, a Santa Barbara–based brother/sister duo, are both in elementary school — 3rd grade for Tatum, 5th for Tyler — and are currently on summer break. When asked if they get along, they reply with an enthusiastic “Yeah!” Tyler does most of the talking, but they sometimes chime responses in unison. On the video call, their parents are hidden away in the corner, encouraging them to expand on a few of their one-word answers. In their music, the kids play a few instruments on their own with the help of their parents. “We started just about a year ago,” explained Tyler. “We weren’t really doing anything during the pandemic, so our mom and dad said we should make some music.” Right now, they are still in the process of making new music. They tell me about some songs that they really like, in addition to the new music

they are working on. The ones they particularly like are their newest song, “DON’T WANNA WEAR PANTS” — whose video is shot at the Garden Street Academy — and “Stars,” whose video was shot on Leadbetter Beach. They excitedly sing two of their other new songs, “Riverbank” and “Come On, Baby” for me a capella. In terms of their music’s genre and sound, Tyler says their songs are “a little bit pop-ish.” During the pandemic, they’ve been “working on new music, working on our yard, and going to museums.” They’re enjoying summer break, since they don’t have to go to school, but, more importantly, because they have time to make more new music. —Kat Sophia

FREE WILL ASTROLOGY by Rob Breszny ARIES (Mar. 21-Apr. 19): What does it mean to feel real? Some

drawn to discover what’s out there without knowing yet if we have the courage to face it.” —Pema Chödrön

people have a hard time doing that. They have such false ideas about who they are that they rarely feel real. Others are so distracted by trivial longings that they never have the luxury of settling into the exquisite athome-ness of feeling real. For those fortunate enough to regularly experience this treasured blessing, feeling real isn’t a vague concept. It’s a vivid sensation of being conscious in one’s body. When we feel real, we respond spontaneously, enjoy playing, and exult in the privilege of being alive. After studying your astrological potentials, Aries, I suspect that you now have an enhanced capacity to feel real.

CANCER

TAURUS

LEO

(Apr. 20-May 20): When she was a child, author Valerie

Andrews visited her secret sanctuary at sunset every day for seven years. She lay on the ground among birch trees and aromatic privet plants, feeling “the steady rhythmic heartbeat of the earth” as she basked in the fading light. I’d love for you to enjoy the revitalizing power of such a shrine. The decisions you have to make will become clear as you commune with what Andrews calls “a rootlike umbilicus to the dark core of the land.” Do you know of such a place? If not, I suggest you find or create one.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): I suspect that your immediate future

will be a patchwork of evocative fragments. You may be both annoyed and entertained by a series of flashing attractions, or an array of pretty baubles, or a hubbub of tasks that all seem at least mildly worth doing. Chances are good that they will ultimately knit together into a crazy-quilt unity; they will weave into a pattern that makes unexpected sense. In the spirit of the spicy variety, I offer three quotes that may not seem useful to you yet, but they will soon. (1) “Isn’t it possible that to desire a thing, to truly desire it, is a form of having it?” —Galway Kinnell (2) “It is not half so important to know as to feel.” —Rachel Carson (3) “Like all explorers, we are

(June 21-July 22): A Tumblr blogger named Cece writes,

“The fact that you can soak bread in sugar, eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla, then butter a pan and fry said bread to make a meal is really liberating.” I agree. And I share this with you in the hope of encouraging you to indulge in other commonplace actions that will make you feel spacious and uninhibited. You’re in a phase of your astrological cycle when you’ll thrive on doing day-to-day details that excite your lust for life. Enjoying the little things to the utmost will be an excellent strategy for success.

(July 23-Aug. 22): Leo poet Renée Ashley articulates a

perspective I recommend you adopt. She writes, “I’m drawn to what flutters nebulously at the edges, at the corner of my eye — just outside my certain sight. I want to share in what I am routinely denied, or only suspect exists. I long for a glimpse of what is beginning to occur.” With her thoughts as inspiration, I advise you to be hungry for what you don’t know and haven’t perceived. Expand your curiosity so that it becomes wildly insatiable in its quest to uncover budding questions and raw truths at the peripheries of your awareness.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): “There are many things in your heart

you can never tell to another person,” declared Virgo actor Greta Garbo (1905-1990). “It is not right that you should tell them,” she concluded. “You cheapen yourself, the inside of yourself, when you tell them.” I presume Greta was being melodramatic. My attitude is the opposite of hers. If you find allies who listen well and who respect your vulnerability, you should relish telling them the secrets of your heart. To do so enriches you, deepens you, and adds soulful new meanings to your primary mysteries. The coming weeks will be a favorable time to seek this wise pleasure in abundance.

WEEK OF JULY 29

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Now is a fantastic time to seek out

effervescent socializing and convivial gatherings and festive celebrations. If you surround yourself with lively people, you’ll absorb the exact influences you need. May I suggest you host a fun event? If you do, you could send out invitations that include the following allures: “At my get-together, the featured flavors will be strawberry chocolate and impossibly delicious. There’ll be magic vibrations and mysterious mood-enhancers. Liberating conversations will be strongly encouraged. Unpredictable revelations will be honored. If possible, please unload your fears and anxieties in a random parking lot before arriving.”

SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): Scorpio author Andrew Sean Greer

writes, “As the Japanese will tell you, one can train a rose to grow through anything, to grow through a nautilus even, but it must be done with tenderness.” I think that’s a vivid metaphor for one of your chief tasks in the coming weeks, Scorpio: how to carefully nurture delicate, beautiful things as you coax them to ripen in ways that will bring out their sturdiness and resilience. I believe you now have an extra capacity for wielding love to help things bloom.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Suggested experiments to try soon:

(1) Remember a past moment when you were touched with the sudden realization that you and a person you’d recently met were destined to fall in love. (2) Remember a past moment when you kissed someone for the first time. (3) Remember a past moment when someone told you they loved you for the first time or when you told someone you loved them for the first time. (4) Allow the feelings from the first three experiments to permeate your life for five days. See through the eyes of the person you were during those previous breakthroughs. Treat the whole world as expansively and expectantly as you did during those times.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Capricorn poet Kenneth Rexroth

was shirtless as he strolled along a rural road. To his delightful amazement, a fritillary butterfly landed on his shoulder, fluttered away, landed again, fluttered away — performed this dance numerous times. Nothing like this had ever happened to him. Later he wrote, “I feel my flesh / Has suddenly become sweet / With a metamorphosis / Kept secret even from myself.” In the coming days, I’m expecting at least one comparable experience for you. Here’s your homework: What sweet metamorphoses may be underway within you — perhaps not yet having reached your conscious awareness?

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): “Each time we don’t say what we want

to say, we’re dying.” Aquarian artist and singer Yoko Ono said that. I will add a further nuance: Each time we’re not aware of the feeling or experience or situation we want, we’re dying. And these will be key themes now that you’ve entered the “I KNOW WHAT I WANT AND I KNOW HOW TO ASK FOR IT” phase of your cycle. The most healing and vivifying thing you can do during the next six weeks is to be precise about your desires.

PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): In 1829, Piscean author Victor Hugo

began work on his novel The Hunchback of NotreDame. He had other projects, though, and by September 1830, he had made scant progress on Hunchback. Growing impatient, his publisher demanded that he finish the manuscript by February 1831. In response, Hugo virtually barricaded himself in his room to compel himself to meet the deadline. He even locked his clothes in a closet to prevent himself from going out. For the next five months, he wore only a gray shawl as he toiled nonstop. His stratagem worked! I recommend you consider trying a somewhat less rigorous trick to enforce your self-discipline in the coming weeks. There’s no need to barricade yourself in your fortress. But I hope you will have fun taking stringent measures.
